I fell asleep to “U2” the album “Zooropa”, then I listened to “Jack Johnson” the album “Brushfire Fairytales”, finally fell asleep partway through the new “Alter Bridge” album “The Last Hero”
I exercised to “Clutch” everything on shuffle.

I got up to pee at 6:00 am. That’s when we get up anyways so I started my exercises by about 6:05 am. When Kim left for work, I had finished my squats, ½ of my leg lifts, & had done 870 crunches. I finished my exercises by 8:30 am. I was “exhausted”. I sat on the couch where I had my coffee, juice, hardboiled egg, a Mandarin orange, & another full bottle of water. Stayed there to watch 2 one hour late night talk shows. Then I showered & now I’m here. Yesterday Kim had to wake me up 3 times before I would get up.
Disclaimer you do whatever you want to with the internet, except cell phones at a live show, TURN THEM OFF please! It’s annoying to others and will sound like garbage when you watch/listen to it on your 4 inch screen on your cell phone at home or on your tablet, iPad, or computer. Wait a few months for a concert DVD or Blu-ray release.
Why do I choose to attain my music, DVDs, & Blue-rays via a purchase? Here are a few reasons.
I pay for my music so that Apple can’t take it away if Apple Music shuts down. I can’t replenish my music library all at once by spending $900 at once on digital music. We pay for Netflix like everyone else does. We were paying an extra $4 a month to a website so we could use both Canadian & American Netflix. Before that site was shut down 3 TV series I was partially through disappeared. I was watching “Criminal Minds”, “The Wonder Years”, & “Quantum Leap”. All 3 vanished from Netflix weeks before the website disappeared. If it’s a TV series I really like & don’t have access to I buy the DVDs. “Criminal Minds” is one of my favourite shows on TV, I already had the available seasons, 1-9 I think it was, on DVD. Good thing I had the DVDs or I probably wouldn’t have access to older shows. We don’t have HBO because it’s an extra $20 a month for 3 channels so I bought “Sonic Highway” the Foo Fighters’ miniseries from iTunes. It’s mine. I paid for it legally & yes I’ve watched it multiple times. Streaming sites for actual shows will likely be common practice in 15 years if not sooner. Sporting events, news, & maybe talk shows won’t be on streaming sites. Cable & DVDs might be more money, but no one can legally take them away from me. I haven’t seen the FX series of “Fargo” our cable company does not have that channel as an option. I’d like to see it, but it’s on another streaming site. Those multiple streaming sites will add up to paying for cable or “satellite”. Our streaming sites don’t include Hulu either, so I have no idea what’s on there other than “The Path” starring Aaron Paul from “Breaking Bad”. I’m in no dire need to see it. If it shows up on Netflix or our digital cable sure I’ll watch it.
I’ve watched the older shows when I was younger, they were available on cable in Canada, but not now? I don’t NEED to see them again but I’d like to have the option to see them?
Once I’ve purchased an item, it’s mine for as long as I want it. Nobody can legally take it away from me & it will always be right where I left it. Does anyone still have Napster files that were downloaded when it first came out in 1999? I don’t?
