Everyday I wake up and think about going “Underneath the Radar” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDf893roLno same dude singing from Big Wreck. I’m glad Big Wreck is back after a decade and 2 Thornley albums. Something just sounded completely different, like comparing apples and oranges! I always think I should just go away and not bother anyone. Just sit here, watch youtube videos, write blogs about my boring day, delete my facebook account, check my email once every two weeks and just leave it as is, and after 1-3 minutes of that thought process I realize how much I wouldn’t enjoy it.
Kim took today off work, she can basically go in whenever she likes as long as she has 12.5 hours a week. She took me out to the outdoor path since it wasn’t extremely warm out this morning. Walking with my walker and my transfer belt. I was wearing my A.F.O. I hate that brace. I can’t feel or tell where my left foot is going to end up. I figured I should go for quality instead of quantity. I can walk over 800 meters but they aren’t perfect in any way? Not really! I went 560 meters for a decent walk, talking to myself the entire time, just repeating what it is that I need to focus on. No cursing at myself today, just couldn’t get to the next bench fast enough to rest and have some water. Our wheelchair lift is long gone! I use our front steps with Kim helping me of course. Yes we’ll be moving in with my parents mid-October. Our condo won’t be ready until sometime in November. It will be just like an episode of “Everybody loves Raymond” and I’ll be playing the roll of Raymond. My parents have Mitch who recently moved out and here I come back with friends! At this rate my parents won’t get a house to themselves, EVER! Hahahaha!
It was nice to go out to the lake, but I knew a Monday workout would be difficult. It’s true for my legs “If you don’t use it, you lose it”.
There’s more music being released this year for me to purchase from iTunes. Avenged Sevenfold is releasing an album tomorrow, that I’ll have to preview before hand. Jack Johnson on September 25th, Alter Bridge October 8th, Pearl Jam and Trivium October 15th. Other than Avenged Sevenfold, I’ll get the rest of the albums without a preview. The rest of them are usually quite good, to my ear anyways. The Watchmen should release something, like a live album or a single at least since they’re touring still. A live album would be AWESOME! We heard the song “Stereo” on the radio this morning and it made me want a live album from them.

Toronto Blue Jays. Firing John Gibbons, the manager, is not the only thing they need to do. All of these overpriced morons should be traded too. Why? They’re the ones making the mistakes on the field!

Article about Jimmy Eat World when they gained popularity for this song, not metal or hard rock, just catchy pop/rock although not everyone likes them. This is music I enjoy, not just metal!
