CANCER/MR. INDEPENDENT

I first tried to fall asleep to “The Pretty Reckless” the album “Light Me Up” switched to “Trivium” the album “Vengeance Falls” & fell asleep to that after a few songs by “The Pretty Reckless”

I exercised to “Lamb of God” the newest album “Strum Und Drang”

I want to be more independent. That’s why I workout everyday of the work week, 1200 crunches a day & whatever else I have energy for. I usually get up at 7:00 am when Kim leaves for work then I either exercise right away so it’s done & out of the way, or I have breakfast first. Usually I workout first. I also eat much healthier than I did before. Breakfast is water, black coffee, a hard boiled egg and a glass of blended fruits & vegetables. Lunch is usually chicken in a wrap with Frank’s Red Hot, crackers & hummus, or just more fruit. Supper is usually something quick, easy, & healthy, or Kim stops at Pita Pit on her way home & I’ll ask for a salad when she calls me. If there’s chocolate or potato chips around, I’ll fight it off for a few days & then eventually succumb to my desire if it’s still here. We try not to have that stuff around. If it’s full of sugar &/or salt, we try not to have it in the house. I figure I’m 36 years old & it’s past the time that I should pay attention to what I eat, & do some exercise anyways.

In a weird round about way surviving cancer turned out to be a pretty good thing for me, other than just being “alive & kicking”. It was a wake up call for me, “HEY, IDIOT! TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF! THIS IS A SECOND CHANCE! NOT EVERYONE GETS ONE OF THOSE!” With surviving cancer the way I turned out, I have that amount of time to do that.

Nobody needs to worry about me. I’m fine, you’ve all been through this with me & you’re still there if I need help, thank you. Even if it’s just a small thing I need help with you’re all there to help & it doesn’t go unnoticed.

Pre-ordered the new “Tegan & Sara” album “Love You To Death” release on June 3rd

Looks like I won’t be seeing Batman v. Superman in the theater. I’ll just buy it on blu-ray when it’s released. Tonight is it’s last showing in the theater. I don’t leave the house often on weekdays, if at all.

I saw “The Jungle Book” last week instead. The CGI was fantastic, but I saw the Disney cartoon as a child & didn’t care for the story then or last week. I could have not gone to the movie & watched the trailer for the CGI.

Top 10 disappointing albums

Yeah, I’m a fan of the first 2 albums & the recent one by Coldplay.

New Alice Cooper album!!!! Yes please.

Here’s a review. However many albums Radiohead has released after “OK Computer”, I just don;t like them. So from now on, for me, until they release something half decent everything gets a D-. They can be FANTASTIC or terrible. I would assume they’re a band doing music for themselves, as they should be.

I love his voice, not the music though. If you think “grunge” & metal are depressing, listen to a bleak Radiohead album. I could listen to “The Bends” & “OK Computer” for multiple days at a time along with Foo Fighters “The Colour & The Shape”.

Remember pre-order “Chevelle – The North Corridor” tomorrow.

Yes, I purchase my music from iTunes, because I want to own it. If you prefer streaming music that’s fine with me. It feels more like renting music to me. Sort of like Netflix. I like it but then the series I want to watch or that I’m not done with disappears. I found out that streaming music sites don’t have everything that iTunes has.

New video from Muse

Are the writers in Hollywood out of ideas at the moment? There seems to be a lot of reboots/remakes at the moment.

http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/news/jack-black-to-join-jumanji-remake-20160511

Believe it or not this has been remade 3 or 4 times.

It’s plain old beer. I prefer beer with more flavour.

This link describes how the music industry is at the moment. Canadian groups at the very least are looking for donations? So why should music be free?

Shannon Tweed and Kiss members can argue all they want. Gene Simmons reacted badly to the death of Prince. It’s over & done with. Don’t dwell on the past. Either way Prince can’t be revived.

Pantera’s over leave it at that.

Mike McCready, Pearl Jam lead guitar, wants to do a “Temple of the Dog” reunion with Chris Cornell.

The Agonist shared it…

The new Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals “Call it what it is” is really good & quite diverse, reggae, acoustic, rock, pop, etc. Every song is totally different than the last.

Alter Bridge would like to have their album released in September. They’ve just finished recording it or it should be recorded before the weekend is done. Then it will be in the mixing process, followed by the mastering process. Seems like a quick turn around!

This might be good? I’ve never heard their music before. I guess their last release was in 1994? That could be wrong.

HOWEVER YOU’RE GETTING THIS, PLEASE PASS IT AROUND?
