Don’t feel as though you have to click on every link.

All of this is from the past week.  I started writing this on Friday all of the information on this post, is a week of music info on Facebook.

My nerve is much better after 2 visits to the Chiropractor.  More stretching & one more visit should do the trick.  On my side overnight the doctor recommended a pillow between my knees, WAY better.  When the pain is completely gone, I’ll cut WAY back on my exercises until January.  So this is nothing more than an update.  A poor way to end a good year of exercising.  Good time to slow down though.

 

Who knew “Staind” had more than 2 albums?  I thought they had 1, & I’m not joking.

If retired life without a driving license is me sitting on the couch, I’ll do whatever I can to go back to work or get a license!  HOLY BORING!  I think I’m done with Netflix……………..I think I’ve watched it all.  I’m pretty sure I’ve seen “Deadpool” & “Batman vs. Superman” too many times!  Next……..”Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens” for the 10th time!  I listened to a PILE of music also while trying to get comfy on the couch.  Listening to whatever I had purchased this year & I’ve been working on my albums of 2016 since near the end of October.

This is the clean trailer & it still contains LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It’s a lot like an action movie that was handed to Kevin Smith to write the dialogue.  HILARIOUS!  I guess the script was written & re-written over the course of a decade!

I fell asleep to “Taylor Hawkins” 6 song EP.  Yes, he plays drums & sings.  He does the same with Foo Fighters, most of the backup singing on Foo Fighters albums or live are Taylor.  After that EP I put on “Alter Bridge” the new album again “The Last Hero”

Until this literal pain in my arse goes away.  It will be a very tame/quiet week.  I’ll continue to blog though, more stuff about my day & of course pop culture stuff.  Brewster’s new kennel didn’t get here on Friday, Kim may have to pick it up on her “…way home…”   I’m hoping to get “back in the saddle” by tomorrow.  I guess I’ll see what happens?

 

Here’s a sample of what I’ve been listening to while massaging my butt with a vibrator & stretching, stupid delete button isn’t working.  That didn’t come out right.  I’ve pinched my sciatic nerve & can’t really put much weight on my right side or leg when doing anything.

No I haven’t bought Metallica’s album yet.  I’m waiting until the funds for iTunes.  Listening to it on our Apple Music account.

Cash grab!!!!  “Let’s make 10 prequels to the 3 prequels of the Star Wars franchise”.  That’s quite a few movies that aren’t needed unless you’re a diehard Star Wars fan.  I’ll admit that I’m close to a diehard fan of the franchise.

 

Green Day start anti-Trump chant during American Music Awards performance.  Audio was not available when I posted this.  So who did vote for Trump?  All I see on the internet is mostly protesters against him other than a select few that I know of.  Ted Nugent, Ann Coulter, Kid Rock, the entire KKK, & I don’t know who else?

What did we do this weekend?  Nothing.  Kim got a new artificial, pre lit, Christmas tree Saturday since she tried the lights on our old one, some blinked, some stayed on, & the other set didn’t work at all.  I’m not excited for Christmas yet.  I need snow.  Without snow it just doesn’t feel like Christmas yet.  Our inside looks like Christmas, our outside……………………not so much.

I’ve aggravated a muscle in my right butt cheek.  I’ll be stretching & massaging my thigh & bottom until it’s gone.  I hope it’s gone soon!  It hurts when I do anything but staying still with the least amount of weight on my right side.

 

Thank goodness!  Yoda looked like a garden gnome!

I was extremely tired this week.  Yesterday and today I did ½ of my workout routine each day.  Thursday was 120 squats & 1500 crunches.  Today was 100 pushups & 100 leg lifts.  This week the total is; 6000 crunches, 480 squats, 400 leg lifts, & 400 pushups.  I get disappointed with myself when I can’t do something I’ve done before.  In my head it sounds like this (yes, the voices in my head), “Not good enough”.  No I’m kidding there are no voices, the tenants are pretty quiet up there!

7500 crunches, 600 squats, 500 leg lifts, & 500 pushups in a 5 day week.

Every day of the week starts with 60 squats, a 3 minute rest, 60 more squats, 50 leg lifts on my back, 1500 crunches.  Then 50 more leg lifts on my hands & knees, then 100 pushups.

 

I forgot about “daylight” saving time, I got my 2 preorders today from iTunes.  I got the Lamb of God EP “The Duke” & Highly Suspect “The Boy Who Died Wolf”

LANGUAGE IN THIS TUNE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Metallica & Bruno Mars were also released today.

I’ll have to check out Metallica & Bruno Mars on Apple Music before I make a purchase after Christmas.  I didn’t plan on preordering either one until I heard them anyways.

Brewster is getting his Christmas gift today.  His own puppy apartment.  It’s a kennel with a sleeping area, & a wall down the middle with a Brewster size doorway to a place with a pad for him to go to the washroom.  Yeah, the training will be fantastic……………..NOT!

I’m very tired this week.  Kim wakes me up when she gets up at 6:00 am to get ready for work.  I fall asleep until she wakes me up at 7:00 am.  This week I either wake up at 9:00 am or 8:00 am, or I just lay in bed wasting the day until 8:00 am or so.  I just feel lazy this week, but I have continued to exercise like a mad man!  It’s taking me a little longer to do my exercises, which I guess is a “good thing”.  Quality over quantity!  Today was even worse.  I slept until 9:00 am, did my squats & crunches, went to the shower, & cleaned up the kitchen.  Once this is done I’ll be sitting on the couch.  Nothing hurts or anything like that.  I just don’t have any “fuel” in the tank left.  Tomorrow I’ll do my pushups & leg lifts.   In the big picture, doing ½ of my exercises for 2 days won’t hurt anyone.

People that know me well, know I’m a metal fan with a strong dislike for Metallica.  However this album sounds pretty good.  I don’t know if I’d listen to it enough to buy it though?  Wait & see I guess.  Friday marks my end of purchasing music until after Christmas.  I have two preorders & then I’m done.  Apple Music until December 26th or 27th.  Metallica & Bruno Mars are the 2 releases I don’t have on preorder for that day.

Any parent reading this, you have one of the toughest & thankless jobs out there!  You’re raising a child to be a responsible adult, that’s something I couldn’t do.  I still feel like a kid & that’s why I don’t have a child.  A child can’t raise another child, as far as I know.  Parents & teachers are raising future police, fire fighters, doctors, nurses, engineers, contractors, lawyers, teachers, parents, etc.  So give yourself a pat on the back, I can’t reach you from here, sorry!
