I fell asleep to “”Royal Blood” their only album, then “Room 333” the album “Red Dragon”, & finally “Third Ion” the album “Biolith”

I exercised to “Chevelle” the album “La Gargola”

 

I’ve been doing my exercises as usual.  Just slowly building to the number of repetitions I’m hoping to eventually get to.  Right now I’m at 200 crunches, 30 pushups, & on Tuesday I added a back exercise Kim showed me.  You lay on your front & raise your arms & legs.  I hold that for a count of 5 & do that 10 times.  I’ve decided not to even attempt squats or leg lifts until my sciatic nerve is healed 100%.  My expectations of my exercise are much higher than I’m supposed to do.  I’m dropping the total of everything………………not what I want to do.  However, I’ve already reached the limit of visits to the chiropractor that I can claim for taxes until next year.  I’ve seen him quite a bit for this nerve nuisance.

I’m hoping to do 1200 crunches, 80 pushups, 80 squats, 80 leg lifts, & 20 – 30 back things a day.  It’s less than before but probably not low enough as others wanted.  Right now the numbers are varying.  Seeing what my limits are without doing too much.

As for what else I’m working on, I’ll give you the full deal on Friday.

 

I hope everyone is enjoying their free/rented music.  I’m now at 3 concerts I can’t afford to go to.  “Walk off the Earth” $71/ticket, “Ed Sheeran” $117/ticket, & “In Flames” which I think has passed already.  All of these were/are also out of town 2 of them are 2.5 hours away, the other was 8 hours away.  After we pay a crap load of money for the tickets.  We still have gas, food & accommodations to pay for.  Do musicians think we all have hundreds of dollars burning a hole in our pockets?

Yes, I buy my music from iTunes & then it’s mine, no longer a possession of iTunes/Apple.  I look at streaming sites & iTunes differently.  Apple Music (the streaming service) I see as an apartment.  You pay a monthly fee.  Great, what do you own?  Nothing, it feels more like renting to me.  They can evict you (shut down) whenever they want.  I use Apple Music to preview a band I’ve never heard before.  I’m not saying to use it as I do, that’s just how I choose to use it.

Kim just uses it as a radio.  Yesterday was the first time she actually “downloaded” an album to stream.

I pay a fee for every album I purchase from iTunes.  It’s mine then, I purchased it, if Apple wants to take it away, I’d consider that flat out theft!  I see it as making mortgage payments.  Sure I can be evicted but it’ll be much more difficult, unless I break the rules.  I think if they ever shut down, which could easily happen, I’ll get to keep my files, especially since I have them backed up on an external hard drive or I own some on CD.

 

I think “Royal Blood” may be announcing a preorder date soon?  I saw what I think is a new tune on their Facebook page.

 

Want to hear 21 live songs by “The Watchmen” out of Winnipeg, Manitoba?  Preorder “Live & in Stereo” on iTunes & thank me later!

 

Queens of the Stone Age are saying they’re done recording the new album?  They also said this in the late fall/early winter.

I’m pretty sure I heard a clip of Josh Homme saying he was done lead guitar & vocals months ago?

So many Alter Bridge fans like the album “Blackbird”, it’s good but highly overrated I find.  I’d rate it 5th out of the 5 studio albums they’ve released.  My list from worst to first would be; “Blackbird”, “One Day Remains”, “ABIII”, “Fortress”, & “The Last Hero”

What I know for sure.  April 7th I’ll get the live Watchmen album & Pentatonix 7 song EP of covers.  May will bring the new Linkin Park, & June will bring the new Stone Sour.  Everything but Stone Sour, Royal Blood, & Queens of the Stone Age I have on preorder.  The last 3 have yet to release anything.
