I really don’t care for a week of just stretching & not doing much for exercise.  I feel incredibly guilty.  I keep thinking “I should be exercising”.   Everything feels OK, but next week will be more of a buildup week, a week to gradually get up to my exercise goals.  My body can’t just “automatically” flip a switch & go all out.  I’d love for that to happen, but I’d end up in the same place I am now.  I really don’t need that to happen.

Some people tend to think my life is a cake walk, super easy, fantastic retirement.  That is so not the case!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  When I get up at 6:00 or 7:00 am, I get up & go ass much & as fast as I can.  Honestly, I’m more stressed now than I’ve ever been!  In the end it’s my fault, I always expect more/better from myself (self-inflicted stress).

Yeah, I watched the CMAs/Country Music Awards.  I’m not much of a country music fan, I watched it so I could hang out with my wife.  How did a rock & metal fan marry a country music fan?  Good thing all of her other attributes shine brighter than her taste in music.  At least the Dixie Chicks performed & Zac Brown Band were nominated.

Third Ion……………….LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I guess using foul language solidifies your life as a metal/rock musician.  I only swore on stage if it was a lyric in a cover song.  BECAUSE IT’S NOT NEEDED OTHER WISE.  In the end it’s the group/musicians show.  If I’m offended by the language used, whoever it is has my money, & I have every right to leave, or not attend or purchase a ticket.  That being said, if language mattered to me I’d never see Foo Fighters live.

Quiet weekend here. Friday I had a doctor appointment, then Kim & I went out for brunch. I overate, felt bloated the rest of the day. Kim felt the same way & got a bad headache to go along with it. We stayed in & rented a George Carlin HBO stand up comedy show. Saturday night we stayed in as well and watched “Moneyball” with Brad Pitt on Netflix. Today we celebrated father’s day since my dad was in Winnipeg that day. Finger food, shrimp, deviled eggs, bruschetta, vegetables, dip & a fruit tray! My dad now has a drone to pilot from his cell phone. When we left everyone was alive, we’ll see what happens over the course of the week?

JUST BECAUSE IT’S HEAVY DOESN’T MEAN I LIKE IT?

I fell asleep to “Zac Brown Band” the album “Jekyll + Hyde” after listening to “The Tea Party” the album “Edges of Twilight”

I exercised to “Led Zeppelin” all of the studio albums & my 3 disc box set on shuffle, didn’t hear my favourite songs though. I did hear their biggest hit though “Stairway to Heaven”, good song I just find it overrated, I still like it though.

Here’s “Stairway to Heaven” for those who don’t know it?

Yes I like pop, rap, hip hop, jazz, some country, but mostly rock & metal. I only know of one person in my life that listens to metal & nothing else. I can’t do that, after a while it’s like “OK, stop screaming at me!” Variety is the spice of life? Take almost everything in small doses? That’s how I take my music. I don’t purchase rap or country music since I know it would be a waste of money since I’d rarely listen to it. Just not my go to music. As long as the individuals enjoy what they’re doing, that’s good enough for me! I don’t have to like it or buy it!

Look at that! The Toronto Blue Jays’ bats sort of woke up last night. It’s like they rolled over & said “5 more minutes mom” as they won 7-2 against the NY Yankees. I think that’s the first time they’ve scored more than 3 runs in a game? They’re only 9 games into the season though 151 games to go!

2015 TOP 10 ALBUMS, FOR ME!

First off, it was a really great year in music for me. Even better than 2014. That being said this was a VERY difficult list to compile, which I’m positive will have a TON of honourable mentions. I started to make this list in early-mid November. It has changed many times!!! Here is my top 10 albums of the year. Quite a few of the honourable mentions could have easily made the list!

This is it. I’m done for the year, no more blog posts this year! I’ll catch you on January 4th with a post. Merry Christmas, Happy New Year & whatever else you celebrate. For the non religious folk, enjoy the time off at work!

  1. Pentatonix “Pentatonix”

  1. Halestorm “Into the Wild Life”

  1. Tremonti “Cauterize”

  1. Highly Suspect “Mister Asylum” LANGUAGE!!!!

  1. Trivium “Silence in the Snow”

  1. Finger Eleven “Five Crooked Lines”

  1. Lamb of God “VII: Strum Und Drang” This album has some stuff I have never heard on any Lamb of God album. He actually sings a bit, there is a guest singer, & they also use the talk box effect on a guitar track, where you shape the guitar sound with your mouth into letters using rubber tube into a microphone. I’ve never tried it.

  1. Coheed & Cambria “The Color Before the Sun” LANGUAGE!!!

  1. Ian Fletcher Thornley “Secrets” Not much on www.youtube.com Live version of the title track!

  1. Zac Brown Band “Jekyll + Hyde”! Wait before you lose your mind? Yes, it’s a country music band, but it’s not a country music album. Pop, jazz, orchestral, drinking tunes, etc. This was the most diverse album I heard this year by far.

Honorable Mentions that could have easily made the list, a few released late in the year I didn’t really get a chance to digest….

Foo Fighters “Saint Cecilia EP”

Eagles of Death Metal “Zipper Down”

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds “Chasing Yesterday”

Walk off the Earth “Sing it all Away”

Sevendust “Kill The Flaw”

Third Ion “13/8 bit”

Meg Myers “Sorry”

Iron Maiden “The Book of Souls”

Clutch “Psychic Warfare”

Barenaked Ladies “Silverball”

A. D. D. “Core”

Puscifer “Money Shot”

The Agonist “Eye of Providence”

These were released in 2015 & just didn’t live up to my expectations. Muse is good musically but the lyrics become redundant. My Morning Jacket is awesome live, the albums leave me wanting to hear them live. Fall Out Boy just pales compared to their previous release “Save Rock n’ Roll”. I still listen to these albums, just not as often as I thought I would.

Muse “Drones”

My Morning Jacket “The Waterfall”

Fall Out Boy “American Beauty/American Psycho”

My favourite musical act of the year goes to “Pentatonix” their album, all original other than 1 song of 17 A Capella songs (no instruments) debuted at number 1 on the Billboard charts.

If I want to see baseball, football, basketball, soccer, tennis, Olympics, golf, etc., I’ll watch them. If I want to see fighting I can watch MMA, UFC, boxing or the NHL. If I want to see hockey, I have to wait until I see a European game on TV. The NHL, for me, has been on a steady decline since the late 1990s. I used to really like watching the NHL, now it’s just a channel to pass. It’s more about pummeling the opponent to within inches of death? Anybody ever consider scoring? These 3-2 games suck since the players are more focused on beating the other guy bloody than beating the opposing team on the score board!

Top live acts in 2015. I didn’t get out to as many shows as I would have liked to. I think I saw a handful of shows?

http://consequenceofsound.net/2015/12/top-live-acts-of-2015/

Royal Blood opened for Foo Fighters in Calgary, Finger Eleven was here for a show, Ed Sheeran as well. I think In Flames were in Saskatoon this year. I saw Third Ion at the Exchange earlier this year as well as Into Eternity I think ? There’s likely more!

 

I can’t believe this is still a problem? This should have been resolved 15 years ago. You can but do others want to?

Megadeth is playing in Moose Jaw tonight. I found out last night that the arena in Moose Jaw holds less people than the one here in Regina. Our arena holds 6,200 people, Moose Jaw’s arena holds 4,456, Saskatoon’s arena holds 14,311. So why are big name acts like Megadeth not playing in Regina, but in Moose Jaw? Motley Crue played there last year as well with Big Wreck opening for them? I don’t understand it? Could be the sound, the price of the venue, the backstage area, etc. All I can say is that a road trip to Moose Jaw is much better than another trip to Saskatoon! Saskatoon is a very boring drive.

Hard rock, rock, metal, pop & some country. As for rap, it’s not really my thing unless you include “Beastie Boys”, “Rage Against the Machine” & “Linkin Park”. My favourite albums are some of the most diverse albums I’ve heard…..

All of this ^^ within the first 6 songs on a “country” music album that is 16 songs long.

All of this ^^ on 1 Foo Fighters album. The music I like & listen to is a personal choice as I’d expect everyone’s music to be different than what I listen to. Some times I want to hear a band with a great singer, other times I want to hear death metal vocals, or something pop like for radio.

As much as I would like to see/hear a change in the gun laws in the USA since the shooting in Charleston, nothing will change until gun owners begin to think a different way. Owning a gun may be a written right, but it’s really more of a desire. “My neighbor has one, I should too. For protection”.

http://metalhammer.teamrock.com/features/2015-06-01/why-killing-is-my-business-is-one-of-metal-s-most-important-debuts

I really hope the new Megadeth album is released this year?

Big Wreck shared it……

What is “nu metal”? Is it a sub genre of groups people don’t know where other bands should fit? There are a TON of bands labeled as nu metal, but none of them have anything in common sound wise? Here’s 4 bands labeled as nu metal…

Do any of these sound remotely similar? Not to me. Am I missing something? Why are these groups all labeled as ‘nu metal’? For me it’s more of a “….I don’t know what hole these square pegs fit in?….”

I’ve never thought of (Megadeth singer) MegaDave Mustaine as a bad guy?

Ed Sheeran plays metal songs on the Tonight show with Jimmy Fallon!

This is what he played at the end of the show.

The more Ed Sheeran I hear, the more I like him. When I heard his first album, I thought it was some of the most unique music I had ever heard!

“One week” from today on iTunes “Cauterize” by Mark Tremonti of Alter Bridge. “Drones” by Muse!

I was all hyped up about seeing “Halestorm” in Moose Jaw, then realized they were opening for “Three Days Grace”. I’m not a fan of “Three Days Grace”

I’m on the fence about this show, it’s a Tuesday in November & I don’t like going out during the week. We’ll see how much tickets are I guess. Moose Jaw is much closer than Saskatoon the next day!

The Gallagher brothers together as members of “Oasis” were arguing constantly in the ’90s. Kept themselves in the news with a new argument almost every other day. Here’s what Noel Gallagher has to say to “One Direction”

A lot of music for me yet to come out this year. Muse, Tremonti, Walk off the Earth, Lamb of God, Finger Eleven, Stone Temple Pilots, Tool, Megadeth, Into Eternity & maybe other surprises like the new Zac Brown Band which is really good!

Songs I like! “I Mother Earth” I REALLY like them! Based in Ontario, Canada. 2 songs from each (four) albums & a few singles they are releasing now. I can almost hear my mother screaming at my brother & I washing dishes after supper while listening to these guys, “TURN THAT CRAP DOWN!!!” Hahahahahaha!

Singles…

I’d quietly ask the flight attendant if my child has a bomb, if the response is “No” I’d ask what the BABY is doing wrong. “You don’t like it, you show me how to do it then. I’ll gladly accept my refund when you take back to where the oh so dangerous child & I boarded the plane”.

Part 8 of Barenaked Ladies recording the upcoming album “Silverball”, to be released on June 2nd.

Classic rock’s tracks of the week

http://www.loudwire.com top 10 Rage Against The Machine songs ,WARNING!! LANGUAGE!!! This is the first top however many songs with that is quite accurate for me. Tough one that I wouldn’t be able to narrow down to 10 but maybe 20?
http://loudwire.com/best-rage-against-the-machine-songs/?fb51

Top 10 Foo Fighters’ songs? Some yes, some no. When a certain group is your favourite group a top 10 is difficult & either way people a going to have a totally different view. Could I do a top 3 albums by Foo Fighters? Even that would be difficult for me!
http://loudwire.com/best-foo-fighters-songs/?fb002 My favourites are original B-Sides.

I listened to this album 3 times last night, I couldn’t sleep very well? It’s not a beat you over the head death metal album. It’s a metal album you’d probably hear playing at comic convention. Imagine if the people from the star trek enterprise recorded a metal album? Like meringue, a light & fluffy metal album with songs that will stay in your head. Only 8 songs on it, but all around 5:00 minutes & one song at 10:00-13:00 minutes. This guitar riff sticks in my head.

Opeth & Slipknot sure yes, they are mostly metal. I know there are Tool fans reading this, are they hard rock or metal doesn’t matter either way to me, but I’ve never considered them to be a metal group?

Ozzy & Sharon feel like Metallica’s parents
http://classicrock.teamrock.com/news/2015-05-26/metallica-lars-ulrich-slap-sharon-osbourne

I’ve seen Ozzy live as well as Tool, Foo Fighters, Barenaked Ladies, Big Wreck, The Watchmen, The Mayfield Four, etc. Ozzy & The Mayfield Four once, the rest minimum 4 times. Live is quite often better than the recording, as usual for me!

Neil Young’s about to release a new album June 29th, & tour with Willie Nelson’s son. Notice the headline to the article just says “Willie Nelson’s Son”, not the sons first name? There’s a shadow I’d want to get out of. Jakob Dylan of “The Wallflowers” is Bob Dylan’s son, & this person is this persons child, etc.

Mark Tremonti demoing a 100 watt generator for guitar amp!

HBO for us is $20/month extra for 3 channels otherwise I’d watch John Oliver’s show. He’s hilarious!

I miss these guys & opening for them so I could see them live for free!

Foo Fighters’ set list 2 or 3 songs I could do without. I’d prefer weird album tracks or B-Sides. Pretty good set list though!

Songs I like. “Headstones”

The albums are nowhere near as good as seeing them live. It’s really night & day to compare the 2. Yes the singer is High Dillon from the TV series “Flashpoint”.
