I fell asleep to “The Agonist” the new album “Five” followed by “Foo Fighters” the album “Wasting Light”

I exercised to “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “Songs for the Deaf”

This was the first “Queens of the Stone Age” album I bought.  I had never heard of them before.  I knew Dave Grohl was playing drums on the album & also did a short tour with them.  I bought this, then bought the 2 before it.

I did it!  All of the numbers below are accurate!

My goals for each day are: 1500 crunches, 100 squats, 80 pushups, & 70 leg lifts.

Normal weekly total should be, 7500 crunches, 500 squats, 400 pushups, & 350 leg lifts.


This is not meant to be taken as a sob story.  I’m not writing a book?  If you want to, go ahead, you can take what I’ve written & send me the cash from the sales!  Hahahahahaha!


Every morning the first thing I do, once I leave our bedroom, is 50 squats. Then I have a coffee, water & my breakfast smoothie.  Rest for 20-30 minutes, then do the rest of my exercise.  Once all of that’s done, I grab another coffee & I come in here to write a blog post.  I usually start another post right after I post one for the day.

I am & was an introvert for quite a while.  Kept my head down & tried not to ruffle any feathers.  Even fronting a band.  I needed a guitar to hide behind.  A guitar was like my security blanket.  Until university, I never felt very comfortable.  Even while I was in university, I never really went out of my way to find friends, that’s not something I do.  If people look & point at me, I’m OK with that.  Dude with an eye patch, I get it, it’s quite rare to see.

I’m good in a small group but a loud group of over 15 people I don’t really know, I keep quiet & listen usually!  Better off to shut up & learn something.  Even writing this blog is somewhat nerve racking.  I can’t make everyone happy all of the time.  Some of these posts are edited 3 or 4 times.  I’ll read what I have & think to myself “This could be taken the wrong way?”  I don’t want to come off as a $%#&^@*&^ ever, I’m not perfect & I’m aware of it.  “I know that there’s a time & a place that I can choose to walk the fine line between self-control & self-abuse…”


“Walk off the Earth” are doing the Canadian national anthem!



I’m cleaning our 2 bathrooms, I finish one & I’m head banging to the next one.  No one’s here but Brewster and I but I’ve got this song stuck in my head.  “………….done, done, & I’m onto the next one…”


Here’s a review of the new “Opeth” album.


“Big Wreck” is mixing their album…………………..on an analog soundboard!  The last 2 “Foo Fighters” albums were recorded on an analog soundboard.  All it really means is that it will sound more like the album if you see them live, & they have to be really good on the recording.

Who’s buried in the mix as a back ground singer on this song?  Myles Kennedy of “Alter Bridge” & “Slash”!


Metallica were the musical guest on Jimmy Fallon last night.

So far the 2 songs released from their album, I really like!  I’m not preordering it though.  I’ll wait for the entire release on November 18th.


If “The Pretty Reckless” video didn’t work yesterday, here it is now!



As well as grabbing the “Opeth” album & “The Agonist” album last night.  Two songs also came to our iTunes account.  A “Sum 41” song & an “Alter Bridge” song.

I haven’t had a chance to really listen to the “Opeth” album yet.  Before they started recording it or writing it.  They said it would be more of a progressive death metal album.  The previous 3 albums were quite mellow, more of a progressive radio friendly rock vibe.  The little bit that I’ve heard of their new album seems like more of the same, I still like it, hard core fans might think differently though?


“The 1975” may have new material for 2017?  That would be AWESOME!



The new “The Pretty Reckless” album sounds pretty good to me!  This is the 3rd song they have released from the album which will be released on October, 21st.


“Kings of Leon” new song.  I’ve never been a fan of theirs.  I did like their song “Radioactive” though



I like getting all of this music, the downside is that there is so much all at once!  I prefer to listen to an album & really get into it & play it multiple times.


Time to see how the Blue Jays will lose another game?  Last regular season game in Boston on Sunday.


Just because I can!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
