I fell asleep to “Opeth” the album “Ghost Reveries”
I exercised to “Alter Bridge” the latest studio album “The Last Hero”
500 pushups, 500 leg lifts, 245 triceps pushups. I’ve upped the triceps pushups to 45 a day. I have accidentally done 110- 115 regular pushups a few times, but I won’t add any until it becomes a regularity in my routine. I might switch it up & throw in some back flexes on the odd day? When I do my pushups, I don’t do a specific amount of sets, I go full on & do as many as I can (minimum 25) until I can’t do anymore. I rest, then do the same thing, I repeat that until I hit 100 or more. It ends up usually around 3 sets. I’m pretty sure I could do more pushups, if I took more rest periods, maybe I’ll try 130 next week? Once that’s done, I shower, eat breakfast, then I tend to other stuff that needs to be done here.
At the moment still, I cannot do any squats or more crunches due to my pending back surgery. I had a disc slip out of place and I’ve had that off & on experience since grade 10. I twisted the wrong way to borrow a pen, I went home for lunch, bent over to pick up a piece of paper off of my bedroom floor & BOOM I spent the rest of the day on my parents’ kitchen floor. It has come & gone over the years.
Why was I doing 1,500 crunches a day? Kevin Hart was on The Ellen Degeneres Show & said he does 1,000 crunches & 500 pushups a day. I’ve got the time to exercise like crazy & there is/was nothing preventing me from achieving the same thing. Well I proved that I could reach/exceed the number of crunches & I would like to achieve the number of pushups. I’ll get to that total but it will take time & persistence. I didn’t wake up one day and do 1,500 crunches, I built up to that number. I don’t need anyone to tell me I can’t do something, I want to get better, I don’t want to sit here & feel sorry for myself.
Sure my life is different than most people, but what is “normal”? Other than a B-Side by Foo Fighters, I couldn’t tell you? Is your family or household the same as everyone else? I doubt it, & it shouldn’t be. Whatever you think is your “freak flag” let it fly. Show it off & people that care about you will still be there for you.
WOW did that feel like a Yoda moment for anyone else? Where did that come from?
Lastly, it’s the holiday season. I’m tired & stressed a little more each day, & I have zero reason for it? That’s weird & it affects my sleep. If I can figure out what it is, I’ll be sure to let you know.
Jimmy Fallon talks to Patton Oswalt as Roy Moore
Rolling Stone Magazine’s 10 best albums of the year. I’ll agree with 2 of them.
Everything is politically charged. I’ve had more than enough of it & I’m not on twitter nor do I own a cell phone. Why? Information overload! Nobody will talk to someone. “But I missed the emoji, ah my life is over” if you say so?
Is Trump good for the entertainment industry? No, because he’s everywhere & everyone has heard the same thing about him at least 50 times a day already! Movies, late night talk shows, sports, music, etc. I’d love to put something else on here but he is the definition of a “media whore”. If it’s not a picture of him beside the definition on www.wikipedia.com wait until they update the website.
Hahahaha! James Corden & Kristen Wiig sing the song “Hallelujah”
Were they all good albums that 1000s of people know & bought? I can fart into a microphone so it records, if I sell 1 copy, I’d feel sad for that individual & return their $4. Quality, not quantity!
The thing I want to know is. Why is it that a guitarist playing a solo on the higher end of the guitar, have to make a weird face as though they’re pinching off a loaf? Is every solo that difficult or are they making it look hard?
What I personally know is A) I sang & played rhythm guitar, I played a very easy solo when I was asked, I also changed one of my guitar parts when asked. B) How on earth do you play or sing after consuming alcohol? I never ever did any type of drug or smoked cigarettes. Before I was done on stage, I avoided alcohol. I wasn’t a great singer so there was no reason to make it more difficult. After we played maybe a beer. I’d go home, unload my gear, and then relax with a beverage or 3. People actually paid to hear us play our songs, I’d better make the evening enjoyable, & have a good night. Any type of entertainer should care about what they’re doing!
I remember our 2nd drummer, who had recorded & played with/for professional musicians saying that the vocalist typically gets 50% of the money. I thought that was odd & immediately said “We split it evenly, 25% each since there’s 4 of us & I’m the hack”!
Surviving Nirvana members reunite at a Foo Fighters show.
I guess the Rogers Company still owns the Blue Jays but they are for sale. A sale of this magnitude will take some time though if it happens. Starting Pitcher Aaron Sanchez, who went on the disabled list 4 times last year due to a blister forming on his pitching hand, will resume throwing tomorrow. Has the league changed the baseball? There were many pitchers across the league that dealt with the same problem. The players could tell the ball was wound tighter & the seams were lower. All of this means that if a pitcher wanted to make the ball move, he would have to use more pressure on the ball with his fingers. If the ball hasn’t changed, I doubt anything from a players stand point or injury will change. More millionaires sitting around because they have a boo boo on their finger.
Next week all of the MLB general managers begin their Winter Meeting. They go to Florida & talk about trades or free agent signings & see what they can possibly achieve or what can happen ASAP. I’m sure there will be many rumours & moves made around Wednesday or so.
….and the results show he is unfit to serve as President, I hope & nothing serious since he’ll eventually live in a jail cell.
