I fell asleep to “Halflives” the album “Empty Rooms”

I exercised to “I Mother Earth” the album “Scenery & Fish”.  Close to 8 minutes long!  Perfect for my planking with rest periods & then lying on the floor exhausted.

100 leg lifts, 100 crunches, 50 one day then 60 pushups the rest of the week, 5 minutes of planking & 20 back flexes a day.  400 leg lifts, 400 crunches, 80 back flexes, 20 minutes of planking, & 50+60+60+60=230 pushups over 4 days.

Now I need to get my butt moving on some cardio, said nobody in their right mind.  If Kim & I get up & just go walking with my walker, or to the recumbent exercise bike, first thing in the morning on either Saturdays or Sundays, I’ll do it!  I want to get up & get it over with, then start my day without the constant thought that I have to squeeze in some cardio.

I really don’t take MY cancer too serious now.  Whenever Kim takes me to any type of cancer appointment, in my head I try to downgrade it……..I’m fine & I’m alive, & I laugh at MY cancer.  I don’t ever need to think of it as this terrible life changing event.  I go for a blood test, needles don’t bother me, I turn to Kim while the nurse is putting the band around my arm & say to Kim “Hold me Kimmy, pwease”? Then all 3 of us get a little chuckle!  If you can’t laugh at yourself, how do you intend to laugh at anything?

I increased my pushups by 10 every day from 40 to 50, 2 sets of 25, at some point I lost my mind?  As of Tuesday, I now do 40 back flexes & 60 pushups (in 3 sets of 20).  Wow I’m out of shape.  On the other hand, I was wearing a T-Shirt the other day that was tight in the arms & shoulders.  Maybe this exercising is doing something?

 

THAT’S ALL FOR CANCER TALK!  HERE COMES THE POPCULTURE STUFF!

 

I’m sorry, I just can’t stop laughing.  My sides hurt Hahahahaha!!!  I feel sad for those that didn’t vote for him, like 70% of Americans.

Rock’s not dead, it’s just not at the forefront of music right now.  Hip-hop & pop music have taken that spot for now.  Lots of people prefer the radio friendly pop, hip-hop, or country music.

I guess Tim Burton is making a live action “Dumbo” movie.  A movie I can pass on.  I’m not a fan of these reboots at the moment.  I’m old enough to have seen the original!

Are Guns n’ Roses recording a new album?

https://www.alternativenation.net/guns-n-roses-original-new-album-plan-will-surprise-you/

I’ve got 1987 debut album “Appetite for Destruction” honestly I’ve listened to it all the way through once.  It’s in the closet behind me, not even on my iTunes or iPod.  I have no desire to listen to it.  Whoever announces at the Roughrider games found a different song to play before the game the last 2 seasons, but this year, in a new stadium, they went back 30 years to play “Welcome to the Jungle” again?

I go to the Saskatchewan Roughrider games for one reason only.  Not the music, overpriced food & beverages, the half time show, etc.  I go to watch a football game.  I must be a sucker for punishment?  I watch the Riders & the Toronto Blue Jays.  Neither team will be winning anything this year, despite me yelling/coaching from my couch or seat at the Rider home games.

Well, I’m done for the week.  I have a Toronto Blue Jay game to watch in ½ hour.  I guess 65,000 people in Boston have the day off?  Now the blog will go back to Sunday, Wednesday, & Friday.

I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “In Waves”

I exercised to “Foo Fighters” the double album “In Your Honor”

I eat much healthier now.  I pay more attention as to what I’m putting into my body.  You’d mark the calendar when I’d drink water it was so rare.  Now I drink 2.1 liters at least 5 days a week.  I eat more fruit & vegetables too.  I guess I am trying to lose some weight so I can fit into my old T-Shirts.  I was down to 199 pounds during my time in the WRC, I graduated high school at 185.  I lost 2” on my waist.  I lost that weight since I was doing 3 different types of rehabilitation therapy, 17 times a week at the peak of it.  Each therapy session would last 45-60 minutes.  All of that time I ate junk food & couldn’t gain any weight.

We’d come home in the evening then return to the WRC to sleep, since I had exercise therapy at 9:30 am.  I was on methadone, an addictive pain killer that is given to heroin addicts in replace of the heroin.  It must cause people who take it to have a desire for sugar.  I’d get Timbits or a doughnut on the way back to the WRC.  Jason Mewes, Jay of Jay & Silent Bob, was a heroin addict who would go to a methadone clinic every morning, followed immediately by a drive to get a sugary donut.

I’d have either a donut, Timbits, or many Blue Whales every day.  I still eat junk from time to time.  I just don’t have it nearly as much as I used to.  I don’t believe in ‘dieting’.  It works for some people, but I just don’t find them to be realistic.  I drink alcohol but I’m good with 2 drinks Friday & 2 drinks on Saturdays.  If I have more, I’m beyond the point of no return, might as well keep going!

 

THAT’S ALL FOR CANCER TALK!  HERE COMES THE POPCULTURE STUFF! 

 

I have no albums preordered for this month, I thought July could be very quiet as far as any happenings in the music world?

 

Top 30 grunge albums of all time.  For you young hipsters, that’s what alternative rock or hard rock was called in the ‘90s.

http://loudwire.com/top-grunge-albums-all-time/

 

I made a boo boo.  I bought an album & 2 Eps by “Blameshift” as well as the 8 song album by “Halflives”.  Then I realized the 2 bands were quite similar?!

 

Yeah, even Ian Thornley admitted that there was a HUGE Led Zeppelin vibe on this tune!

 

Dude REALLY!  I don’t play my metal music around Kim, & she doesn’t listen to her country music around me, it’s called compromising.  If someone doesn’t like my music I’ll turn it down or off as much as I don’t want to.  Metal music can easily be offensive, probably more so than any other genres.  You don’t have to give it up, just tone it down.  You don’t have to choose between loving someone else or giving up an interest/hobby!

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Even now that I can’t drive, I go to metal shows with my brother or rock shows with my dad.  Kim goes to country music shows with her friends or I go with her to see the odd act that I like.

 

This can’t be real?  We would have heard something about it.  Release 2019.

 

Why people hate Nickelback, proved by science?  There are thousands of people who like Nickelback!  Whatever ‘science’ this is, I disagree.  I’m not a Nickelback fan, but I also don’t need to dump on them or their fans!

Thursday evening Kim came home & we pretty much left immediately to see “Spiderman: Homecoming”.  FANTASTIC movie!  I know comic book movies aren’t for everyone, but I’m all in for the Marvel & DC comic book movies!  “300” & “300 Rise of an Empire” were really good as well.  I couldn’t get into “Sin City” or any other graphic novel movies though.

 

That was our Thursday evening.  Friday morning we woke up & weren’t sure what to do with ourselves.  I had 3 things that needed to be done.  We went out in the late afternoon.  I had my Roughrider jersey from Andy Fantuz fixed, Kim picked up a few groceries we needed for supper.  Brewster & I went along but stayed in the vehicle.  He loves going for a “car ride”.  A “ride” in the summer means he gets to drool/pant all over my arm until we’re somewhere I can roll down the window for him!

Friday, after the few errands were done, we just stayed home.  I watched the Toronto Blue Jays actually win a game & Kim put the house back together after a morning of cleaning.  She doesn’t just clean, she does “spring cleaning” every weekend.  Everything is 10 feet away from where it’s supposed to be so she can clean underneath where it was!  I just try to stay out of her way!

Saturday we went over to my parents place for some BBQ ribs after an afternoon in the backyard, with my mother & aunt.  I found out the hard way that Molson original 16 in a can is a wee bit too carbonated for me, I switched to rum & coke!

Sundays are pretty quiet here.  Kim’s got a few things left on the grocery list.  I made a juice for the week.  Peeled all remaining carrots to BBQ them then keep them handy in the fridge.  BBQ carrots & onion are commonly a vegetable for supper or some type of broccoli dish, I love broccoli!  I’m in the middle of a Blue Jays game at the moment.

That’s our weekend here.  Remember it will be quiet on the blog page until Thursday again, I’ll catch you then!

 

IF YOU’RE HERE FOR THE UPDATE, THAT’S ALL THAT I HAVE FOR YOU TODAY.

 

Another reason for me to NOT buy terrible overpriced Molson beer at the new Mosaic Stadium!  $9 for a regular size can of Pilsner, Coors, or Coors Light……..NOT HAPPENING!

http://globalnews.ca/video/3594992/we-had-our-hopes-up-sask-craft-brewers-disappointed-their-beer-wont-be-sold-at-mosaic-stadium

http://regina.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=1167315&binId=1.1165847&playlistPageNum=1#_gus&_gucid=&_gup=Facebook&_gsc=8qmzzbP

No Bushwakker’s or Rebellion?!?  No more beer for me at the new Mosaic stadium!  This no local beer really bugs me since the Saskatchewan Roughriders are a “community owned” team.  I don’t typically drink beer at a game, but lots of others do, & most of them don’t seem to care what it is as long as there is alcohol in it.  This “no community craft beer” rule is a laughable situation.  “Kick the little guy while we let the big corporate Molson Brewing control all & reap the benefits by charging our customers 300% than the store bought price”

If I really need to, I’ll get drunk at home, on craft beer & pay less while doing so.

FYI, I’ve only seen Molson Canadian being consumed by those that have just turned the legal age to drink alcohol or at a football game.  It’s like Fosters beer in Australia, Australians don’t drink much Foster’s beer from what I hear?

 

Haha!  Stone Sour #1 on Billboard hard rock charts.  It was just a matter of time.

I fell asleep to “In Flames” the album “Siren Charms”

I exercised to “Odds” the album “Bedbugs”

Below is my favourite song from this album

100 leg lifts, 100 crunches, 40 pushups, & 20 back flexes/day.  400 leg lifts, 400 crunches, 160 pushups, & 80 back flexes over the course of 4 days

I figured Kim’s got Friday booked off, then I’ll take a day off too.  I started back doing my exercises & found out my cold wasn’t gone yet.  I did the maximum repetitions for 4/6 exercises.  I guess that’s what I’ll do this week?  I’m pretty much making my own rules as I go, I guess?  Monday-Thursday this week.  It’s summer time & there are many people coming & going this year.  Honestly we have no plans set in stone for the rest of the summer or fall, other than Saskatchewan Roughrider home games that I go to with my parents.

Timothy Wong was here over the weekend, nice to see him & his daughter briefly at the football game, his son Nicholas was guarding the seats.

We’d like to spend some time at my family cabin, don’t know when that’ll be though?  Other than that, I’m not sure what we’ll be up to this summer?

 

THAT’S ALL I HAVE FOR AN UPDATE & CANCER NEWS.  TONS OF POPCULTURE STUFF BELOW IF YOU LIKE.  REMEMBER JUST IF YOU’RE INTERESTED.

 

Sorry, some Toronto Blue Jay talk for a bit.  All of the MLB stops as of this Monday for the All-Star break.  The trade deadline is 12:00 noon eastern time.  The Blue Jays are in last place in their division of 5 teams at 41W-47L.  Each team plays 162 games a year, so there is lots of baseball to go!  This is when the trade rumours start.  What do I want the Jays to do?  Trade a lot of the team, or stay the course, either way.  Please stop lying to fans who don’t know any better aka all of the fans that jumped on the bandwagon in 2015.

Doesn’t matter to me if you’re a bandwagon jumper or not.  Compare the Blue Jays today to the Blue Jays of 2015.  Pretty much the same team other than Left Field & First Base/DH.  So the 2015 team didn’t win a World Series & now you basically have the same players, just 2 years older.  You’ve got a messy platoon in LF & 1B/DH is putting up better numbers than Encarnacion did in 2015.  1B Justin Smoak has 23 Home Runs, 56 Runs Batted In, & a batting average of .294.  IMPRESSIVE to say the least.  At the designated hitters spot is Kendrys Morales who’s stats are 16HR, 48RBI, & an average of .252.  The player the Jays lost in the off season has very similar numbers compared to those of Kendrys Morales.

In my eyes the 2 new front office guys who came in during the off season of 2015-2016 should stop giving fans a false sense of the team being OK.  When they first came to Toronto, they said they wanted/needed to get younger & more left handed players.  OK, sooooooooooooooo………………………where did they pencil that into their schedule?  They currently have the oldest average age of players on their roster!

 

The Philosopher Kings were supposed to tour across Canada last year, they cancelled the tour saying they were going to record instead.  What was released last week?  A 4 song EP of songs from the first 3 albums.  REALLY???  I’d rather see them live than have a 4 song EP of stuff I own.

 

Josh Homme, singer of Queens of the Stone Age, video interview on the album “Villains” to be released August 25th

 

My wardrobe is mostly made up of T-Shirts I’ve bought at concerts or bands that I listen to but don’t have the cash to fly to Europe & see live.  You can take this article either way.  Personally, I don’t really care, on the flip side of that, I will ask you what your favourite album or song is from the band that is represented on your shirt.

Hahahaha!  The Beastie Boys meet Sesame Street!  Hahahahahaha!

 

REALLY?  Get over it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  That album came out in 1997.  He’s holding on to a grudge from 20 years ago if this is real.  It becomes more difficult to get over the longer you hold on to it, let it go!

Stranger Things season 2 on Netflix October 27th

http://www.rollingstone.com/tv/news/stranger-things-season-two-release-date-announced-w491701

 

So Stone Sour debuted on the Billboard 200 at 8, while Nickelback debuted at 5.  I guess their argument worked for both of them.

http://loudwire.com/stone-sours-hydrograd-disc-debuts-at-no-8-on-billboard-200-album-chart/

Kim was out Tuesday night, I watched “Suicide Squad” the extended cut.  I guess I’m the odd one out?  “Wonder Woman” was good other than it was set in a historical event, that was what irked me about it!  “Batman vs. Superman” I liked, “Man of Steel” was……………….meh OK.  “Wonder Woman” was good but it bothered me that it was during a historical event.

 

The “In Flames” album I fell asleep to, is the album where 75% of their fan base started complaining that they weren’t heavy enough to be considered a metal band.  OK, what are they then.  That album would NOT be played on the Regina rock station.  I like that & many more of their albums.  Maybe people don’t see it as metal, & that’s fine with me.  It doesn’t HAVE to be metal in order to be good.

 

Nickelback fan?  Meet other Nickelback fans!

Why was Kim Kardashian wearing a “Morbid Angel” shirt?  It was either comfortable or she must be a fan?

http://loudwire.com/kim-kardashian-morbid-angel-sweater/

It’s a band shirt, “Morbid Angle” just got some promotion that probably is being sent outside of their demographic.

 

I’ve been listening to a lot of Canadian rock lately, as well as the newer albums I’ve purchased.  Mostly “Royal Blood” & “The Matthew Good Band”

 

Would I go to my 20th high school reunion?  Nah, I was there, I know what went on, I’m good.

Kim just doesn’t get the credit that she deserves!  Sure I can do stuff on my own, but without Kim, I likely wouldn’t be alive today.  All through the cancer crap that went on, she was right there with me 24/7 for 4.5 years.  She told my parents “He’s not going to die.”  Why did she say that?  She wasn’t going to let me die!

We don’t have kids, A) We can’t afford to have a kid.  B)  I’m not confident I’d be a good father.  C)  I’m a dependent already.  I can’t drive to the drug store for my refills or cold medication.  I love Kim.  She’s the one that does stuff to help me when needed.  I try not to take her for granted, but at times it may seem like I do.

I know it’s a cliché to say “She’s been through thick & thin with me”, but it’s true.  All of the cancer stuff aside, she’s AWESOME!  I couldn’t love her more!  If she wasn’t so shy, I’d love to introduce her to the world!!

 

Friday finished with Kim & I just watching some Netflix.  Saturday the Toronto Blue Jays won against a ridiculously good team in the Houston Astros, the Saskatchewan Roughriders also won their first game of the season here against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.  The Riders are now 1W-2L.

Today is looking quite relaxing.  My cold is almost gone.  I’ll be watching the Blue Jays game, which has already started (I record them all just in case this situation arises).  Then we’ll get ready for the week!

 

 

IF YOU’RE HERE FOR THE UPDATE, THAT’S ALL THAT I HAVE FOR YOU TODAY.

 

I see a TON of video blogs on www.youtube.com that are titled “Top 10 reasons people hate _____________”  Hating a band would take a lot of energy that could be focused on something positive.  One reason to not like a band is that they’re not what you want to hear.  “…..Simple as that……”  One reason only, the only reason needed.

 

I was listening to the latest ‘Megadeth’ album “Dystopia”.  I found it much better than I had initially thought.  Pretty good album I’d have to say.

 

I find this oddly convenient since it happened at the same time “Nickelback” & “Stone Sour” were both releasing an album.  “Nickelback” on June 16th & “Stone Sour” on June 30th.  I think the trash talking was reported right around “Nickelback’s” release?

 

Starting Pitchers for MLB teams are having blister injuries on their throwing hand.  The baseballs this year are travelling on average 7 feet further when hit.  The reason for this is that the baseballs are much harder & the stitching on them is noticeably lower.  The stitching being lower will cause pitchers to put more pressure on the stitching to make the ball spin the proper way.  So many pitchers around the league are experiencing a blister issue for the first time in their life.  I would hope the commissioner of MLB will rectify the issue for next year or they may have to resort to a pitching machine?

I have no albums preordered for the month of July.  Actually nothing until August 25th when Queens of the Stone Age release their album.  I do plan to see the Spider-man Homecoming movie though!

I fell asleep to “Big Wreck” the album “Grace Street”

 

In the kitchen this morning while unloading the dishwasher I listened to “Foo Fighters” the album “The Colour & The Shape”

 

80 pushups, 200 crunches, 40 back flexes, 100 leg lifts, & 10 minutes of planking.  I only did 1 day of leg lifts.  More of a time issue with spending a day at my parents’ place.

 

Well Thursday was a waste of a day!  On the couch, slept until noon, had lunch.  Couldn’t fall asleep again & proceeded to cough, sneeze, & blow my nose!  What a fun day.  To continue the evening, I coughed so hard that I threw up my hot water, apple cider vinegar, & honey.  Good thing our couch is leather!

I’m better today than yesterday’s gong show, coughing & blowing my nose still though.  Lots of goo coming out of my throat, which I guess is a good thing.

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today.

 

How does Slipknot not play at their own festival?  I wouldn’t think Stone Sour is what most metal fans are expecting?  (Corey Taylor is the singer/vocalist for both bands)

 

Long article with singer Josh Homme regarding new Queens of the Stone Age album.

Why was this chosen to be the first single from the new ‘Stone Sour” album?  Many people are wondering why it’s even on the album.  Are the lyrics a tribute to The Rolling Stones?  “….it’s only rock n’ roll but I like it…..”

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
