Exercise total for the week ;7500 crunches, 600 leg lifts, 300 squats, & 250 push ups.

I prefer to get up by at least 7:30 am & get stuff done. Kim “…woke me up before…” she left for work at 7. I slept in until 8:30 and instantly felt like I was chasing the day already. I’ll have to ask her if she could wake me up when she gets in the shower & then when she leaves if I’m still in bed.

It’s pretty nice not being in a band, at the same time, I do miss it! It’s nice in that I don’t have to be on, I wasn’t really before. Alcohol before a show was a BIG no, no for me. It screwed up my throat. I would have a beer after the show. If we were headlining a show, I’d get to have a beer at 2:30 am. After hauling my gear from the venue. It was a fantastic hobby though!

Now I can relax & watch someone else do that, have whatever to eat or drink, & not worry about messing up the lyrics.

My body feels old, but my mind disagrees. I may be 36, but I have the mindset of an early 20 year old. I have never liked taking things too seriously. If you can’t laugh at yourself, stop laughing at someone else?

When “In Flames” released their album “Siren Charms” there was a lot of backlash from their die hard fans. Complaining that the band had gone soft & shouldn’t be labeled as a metal band anymore! How about the fans do it instead? Or go back to the earlier albums that they like? Being in a band for me was about making the music I liked. None of us did it for anyone else, at least I didn’t! If you don’t like doing what you’re doing, you’re doing it for a loved one or you’re doing the wrong thing?

New Red Hot Chili Peppers tune.

I only listen to 2 of their albums. I own 3 but they just aren’t a group I listen to much. I own “Californication”, “By The Way” & “Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magic”, I didn’t even bother putting this last one on my iTunes.

The first band I was in, in University, covered this song. This is the album that was released 17 years ago, that made me feel so old.

The new Kongos album is the second iTunes purchase I’ve made since Kim signed up for Apple Music. Both purchases on iTunes since that time have songs that don’t work? Could anyone at Apple please fix this, I can’t or else I would. They launched Apple Music & our iTunes Match screwed up royally, so we canceled it. Now we have an Apple Music account, & iTunes is messed up again. This “back & forth” game with Apple seems to be a losing effort? I might just revert to buying CDs?

Who was ‘Spirit’ other than the band suing Led Zeppelin for plagiarism on “Stairway to Heaven”? Why are they suing now? Their song was released in 1969 or 1970? I think someone needs/wants money?

If Pearl Jam plays anywhere you know it should be a fantastic show for any fan of their’s. I’ve only seen them twice so I’m good, I do have there albums though which are awesome!
