EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL/ JULY 1, CANADA DAY!!!!

I fell asleep to “Sum 41” half of the album “Screaming Bloody Murder”, then the entire “Stitched Up Heart” “Never Alone” album, woke up to tinkle. Came back to bed & listened to “Megadeth” the latest album “Dystopia”

I exercised to “Chevelle” everything. Stereo wasn’t working? I played a www.youtube.com mix of Chevelle. New album 8 days away!

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

Exercise total for 4 days ; 5250 crunches, 490 leg lifts, 250 squats, & 200 like push ups. Let me “Break it down” for you.

This is during a normal 5 day week. 1500 crunches, 140 leg lifts, 80 squats, & 50 push ups, 5 days a week. I’ve got the time for that & no, I don’t get paid for that, well I guess disability & EI checks pay me for that. My left hand is still quite shaky but I can hold things with it if I hold them against my torso. When I add an exercise, of course it takes me longer. So all of that takes me 2-2 ½ hours a day. I like to get started by 8:00 am usually if not earlier. Get it done & out of the way! I had a week that I was procrastinating my exercise. Not this week though! Just a day of feeling a little quizy, threw off my numbers a bit. 80 squats a day now instead of 60, yet my dominant leg, right leg, looks like chicken wing bone? My left calf is slightly larger. I’m still 240 pounds, I think it’s my fat turning into muscle? I know I was 265 when I got sick & I still didn’t look terribly overweight really. I’m much thinner now!

You know how your shampoo bottle says to use a dime amount to wash your hair? I don’t have much hair so I use a nickle of shampoo, that’s half of the recommendation……….or ……………wait………I screwed it up a nickle is bigger than a dime, my bad!

HAPPY HUMP DAY (sort of), I’M BETTER

I fell asleep to a few songs by “Stitched Up Heart” the album “Never Alone” then changed it to “Trivium” the album “Silence in the Snow”

I exercised to “Alice in Chains” half of the album “Facelift” then “Chromeo” half of the album “White Women”, then finally “Finger Eleven” most of the album “Five Crooked Lines”

Finally! Nothing hurt this morning. I raised my squats total today, hopefully I can achieve that total tomorrow.

Nobody likes feeling sick, neither do I! I don’t have time to be sick! Just a waste of a day for me!

Yes, I squeezed in a small exercise session, just not as many repetitions, sorry, I don’t remember what I was listening to on the stereo? Probably the “Stitched Up Heart” album?

I was watching the “Batman vs. Superman” movie & this is a dark movie. This isn’t just any stand alone Superman or Batman movie. I haven’t seen the “Kill Bill” or “Sin City” movies. This is by far the darkest comic book movie I’ve seen. Henry Cavill plays the role of Superman again, his parents are the same, Amy Adams is back also. I don’t recommend it for anyone under 18. I’d say it’s a Rated R movie, well the “Ultimate Edition” is, the non theatrical version I bought which also has the theatrical version. I like it, but that’s just me. It was slammed by critics, & wasn’t rated as a good movie by others on iTunes. I like it though. I’d give it 81% tomatoes on iTunes. You can rent it on July 19th. This is the “Ultimate Edition” trailer

It’s not hump day for Canadians, it’s only a 4 day week here. Friday, July 1st is Canada Day. I’m not checking but I think Canada is turning 149 or 150 this year?

MONDAYS ARE DIFFICULT!

SURPRISE! PLANS CHANGED! The internet was fairly quiet today, so here it is.

I fell asleep to “Scream”the album “Fumble”

Yes, that’s a young Dave Grohl. “Scream” is the group he dropped out of high school for & was a member of right before he joined “Nirvana”.

I know I said I wasn’t going to do a post today. My wheelchair was supposed to go in for a cleaning & some minor repair work. The second I woke up my stomach was doing some weird stuff? I felt sick. Thought I’d have a bucket beside me all day? I feel fine & I’ve had breakfast that stayed down. Kim called the company for my chair & canceled the appointment for my chair to go in. Better off safe than “sorry”. I’ve got my chair & I feel fine. I guess we’ll schedule it for another day. I’m leary about working out today though, just in case…better to be safe than covered in vomit.

That short time of 2 or 3 days off really makes my muscles sore. After 200 crunches, then things feel OK. I do my squats, 70 leg lifts on my back, then crunches. Followed by 70 leg lifts on my hands & knees, then the push ups that just about kill me. Squats & push ups are by far the most challenging things I do. Squats leave me breathless for a few minutes & push ups are always last or else I don’t have the energy left to do anything else.

Professional sports don’t have a gay problem. The straight individuals in charge have a problem! They can’t accept that not everyone is the same. Yet, somehow Ty Cobb was a notorious jerk, also known for violence and robbery. Yet he’s in the baseball Hall of Fame?

Music rip offs

Another suggestion from a reader. I looked them up & Chevelle was recommended, I’d say that’s a pretty good comparison. “Stellar Circuits” one 5 song EP & 2 singles on iTunes. I haven’t bought anything, but I might?

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver…………………& this is why Quebec won’t abandon Canada. It’s like opening a can of worms. Quebec is a big part of being Canadian!

Alter Bridge shared it……………..new album in September I hear?

I got Batman vs. Superman last night from iTunes since they had the “Ultimate Edition” I was planning on buying, available on blu-ray & DVD July 19th and also for renting on iTunes that day.

I used Kim’s exercise mat today, that she said I could use! Much better than the large puzzle pieces I’ve been using. I use 3 of them & by the end I have 1. They don’t stay together very well.

I think it’s odd that we still have to have a Gay Pride Parade? I guess it’s because there are so many people against those who are different. Well it’s 2016 & still some people can’t figure out why humans are different than them?

Rare Alter Bridge song.

Why is it that music artists don’t put there B-Sides on iTunes or streaming sites? Release the single from the album I already own & have one or two B-Sides that are only available with the purchase or streaming of the single. Do I have to go downtown to HMV, in the Cornwall Center, to purchase singles with B-Sides again? There’s a reason I stopped going downtown. Because downtown Regina wasn’t thought about long enough before they built it. It’s poorly laid out & not the easiest part of Regina to drive in, too many unnecessary one way streets.

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?

EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL

I fell asleep to “U2” the entire album “Achtung Baby” then “Tremonti” the entire album “Dust” & finally “Stitched Up Heart” the album “Never Alone”

I don’t have time to exercise today. If I do, it will be later on & minimal amounts. Busy day today “Here, there & everywhere”!

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

https://www.facebook.com/A-Million-Miles-Away-Blog-1597618270456002/?ref=hl

www.amillionmilesawayblog.com for email

Exercise total for a four week ;6000 crunches, 560 leg lifts, 240 squats, & 20I like0 push ups. Let me “Break it down” for you.

1500 crunches, 140 leg lifts, 60 squats, & 50 push ups, 5 days a week. I’ve got the time for that & no, I don’t get paid for that, well I guess disability & EI checks pay me for that. My left hand is still quite shaky but I can hold things with it if I hold them against my torso. When I add an exercise, of course it takes me longer. So all of that takes me 2-2 ½ hours a day. I’m becoming to good at procrastinating. I don’t start doing my exercise until 9:00am usually now. I like to get started by 8:00 am usually if not earlier. Get it done & out of the way!

With all of this exercise, I’ll never be under 210 pounds. I graduated high school at 185 pounds. I think somewhere between 215-220 is realistic? I am 6’1”.

It’s baseball season & I only know a small handful of other people that like to watch it aka I’m “Lonely” LANGUAGE AT THE BEGINNING!!!!!!!!!!!! Skip 10 seconds & you’re good.

On the odd occasion he’ll play some Chevelle.

Really dude, stick with Billy Joel or Chevelle? I think it was a trip to see “In Flames” in Saskatoon? Billy Joel’s double album of Greatest Hits in it’s entirety. Good tunes while getting ready to see a metal show!

Sure, there are people out there driving differently than you. I’ve been told not to waste my time & energy & I always ask myself first “Will this matter in 20 years?”. The answer is NO! 99.99% of the time, so it’s quite rare that I get angry about stuff.

If I’m a passenger in someone’s vehicle, why are you ranting & raving to me about the so called idiot driving near us? I can’t fix it? Talk to them tell them how you’d like them to drive. What’s the point of getting angry at me & why do I need to hear it? Are you willing to take driving suggestions from them? If not, your passengers don’t need to hear you having a hissy fit over someone that cut you off, drives too fast or too slow, etc. What the heck did I do & why are you complaining to me? I CAN’T FIX IT!!! FIGURE IT OUT, I DON’T NEED /WANT TO HEAR IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

New artist from one of you followers. I like it, but it’s one of those things I’d buy & never listen to?

Sorry, only available at live shows. He’s from Chicago.

I guess if you purchase a physical CD of “The North Corridor” by Chevelle on July 8th it should be signed by the group.

Consequence of Sound’s “Netflix & Chill” segment

I’ve given up on this show. The first 2 seasons were really good, third season was very underwhelming, watched the first episode of the 4th season & packed it in on the “Orange is the New Black”

Remember this site is only my interpretation of things. I urge you to “dig” deep & find something you like. It’s a very subjective thing, the arts. This is on an album titled “Dig”

BLACK, WHITE, & THE FORGOTTEN COLOUR!

I fell asleep to “Pearl Jam” the album “Pearl Jam” released in 2006.  iTunes says 2003 but I saw them in 2005 & this album was released after I saw them.

I exercised to “Big Wreck” the newest release “Ghosts” wasn’t long enough so I put on the album “Albatross” released in 2012

There’s quite a bit of stuff on TV regarding O.J. Simpson. I watched the HBO series “The People vs. O.J. Simpson” & the 5 part mini series “O.J. : Made in America”. I think it was the most opportune time for him to allegedly murder his ex-wife & her new boyfriend. N.W.A. & the Rodney King tragedy were all over the news at that time & in the same state. Black people being black people & white people abusing or accusing any person of colour for whatever they wanted to? So of course O.J.’s team of lawyers were going to play the colour/race card. Unfortunately people forgot about the colour red?

It’s long past due that our society allows discrimination for colour, religion, sexuality, or anything else. It’s what’s on the inside that matters………….literally! Anybody that bleeds, bleeds red! The blood DNA was a slam dunk case against retired football star O.J. Simpson. There is no doubt in most peoples minds that he was guilty. His lawyers took the spotlight off of the evidence & put it on black people & all of the senseless racism going on at the time. I was a teenager at the time & even I thought he was guilty. Yes, I am caucasian. Am I racist? No! There’s always at least one bad apple in EVERY group & yes, I’m including caucasians.

Nobody’s perfect so EVERY stereotype is right but with many exceptions, enough to make EVERY stereotype wrong! I don’t care what your skin colour is, your religion or sexuality is! Are you a good person? If so, can we be friends?

It frustrates me that 50% of the time I turn on the TV during a breaking news story that there has been a mass shooting somewhere. It’s not really breaking news if it’s so frequent and continues to become even more frequent?

No I’m not saying Canada is better, we have crime, stereotypes, gangs, etc. Now it seems like every other person is pissed off at a certain group of people because the group is not the same as everyone that person associates with? That would be boring if we were all the same, but it would probably decrease the amount of unwanted violence? Just be you & who cares what anyone thinks of you outside of your circle of friends & family?! If someone chooses to kill or harm another person, the world will more than likely judge them & their actions, not you.

Good grief I’ve written 2 chapters of a novel! On to the music/pop culture portion of this thing.

Batman vs. Superman release for purchase on iTunes June 28. Rent on iTunes & DVD/Blu-ray release on July 16th or 19th in Canada? The 19th since it’s a Tuesday for the regular edition. The 16th is for the ultimate edition, I believe.

People going to rock or metal shows always get a pat down before entering the venue. I think this should be done at any type of public event. They even check our bag at football games. I’m fine with that.

Saw them in 2003 in Edmonton got there, was going through my 3rd or 4th pat down for this show, slept & went home the next day I believe. That’s roughly 17-18 hours of driving in 2 days! REALLY, you’re going to pat me down at a Foo Fighters concert? OK, I guess.

Brewster is having some stomach issues. I should go! It’s only Wednesday, & I think the internet died? Facebook is eerily quiet.

All of my music info came from; first my parents, then radio, then Much Music, always from like minded friends, then I got into metal a little over a decade ago, & now it’s all from facebook. I rarely listen to the radio, for a few reasons. I flip on the rock radio station & I either own it or don’t like it. That & isn’t FM radio supposed to play/advertise a new song or album? I don’t need to hear “Tom Sawyer” by Rush from the 1970s for the 4th time today ( I wish I was joking but somebody at the station must REALLY like that song)

I’ll be sitting in our vehicle somewhere Kim has to run in, & I’ll flip through 3 FM stations & usually turn it off after a total of 10 seconds. If I find something I like, it’s usually on the soft rock station or Jack FM where they truly do play everything. I probably own it, but haven’t listened to it in a while & it urges me to listen to an album when I get home!

All I can tell you is that Paramore’s Facebook page is very active with studio photos!!!!!!

Ben Affleck knew you hated him being cast as Batman. The movie exceeded my expectations! I loved the Christian Bale Batman trilogy! I’d say this is darker and easily lives up to the hype! Out on iTunes for purchase June 28th. Available in store on DVD or Blu-ray in July.

I at my parents place from the afternoon to the time Kim finished work. Then we had supper & came home shorty after that.

I wrote all of this but the stuff I listened to at the top of this post. It’s now 12:30pm. I’m becoming a fantastic procrastinator! Not a good thing at all. I had lunch after my exercises & listened to the most recent release from “Lacuna Coil” the album “Delirium”.

OK, he’s dead now. What is done is done. Nobody can change that. It was wrong & the victims will be left to deal with it unfortunately. Let him R.I.P.
