I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “The Sin & the Sentence” followed by “Dead Sara” both full albums on iTunes that I bought yesterday
I exercised to “I Mother Earth” the album “Scenery & Fish”
Weekly exercise total; 720 pushups, 560 leg lifts, 300 crunches, 240 squats, 180 tricep pushups, & 120 back flexes. I took shorter rest periods again today. Every day I do my exercises I A) Make sure I’m doing them all properly & B) Try to take shorter rest periods between sets.
This week was pitiful in my opinion. I expect more from myself. I am often my worst critic though. You might think differently, but that’s only 3/5 days. I stayed up until the early morning on Saturday cleaning up the kitchen, then I was over tired on Monday & couldn’t sleep. I need to remember I’m not in my early or mid-30s anymore, & I can’t burn the candle at both ends anymore.
Another appointment next week after having 2 this past week. Another in the summer at some point. I hope the one in the summer is my last one there? The appointment next week will be a reoccurring checkup/refills on the pills I take.
Unless I get a call before then, everything should be fine. I think, if my cancer was to come back it would have already. The doctors thought it might “come back” in 2013. That was 5 years ago, I think I’m “in the clear”.
Sometimes it takes a brush with death to finally wake up.
STONE TEMPLE PILOTS
They’re lumped in with the grunge movement. They were based in San Diego & got together in 1989. I have everything from the 1992 release “Core” all the way up to & including “Stone Temple Pilots (2018)”. I have mostly CDs of this group & I think the recent 2 albums from iTunes. I really didn’t get into them until a few years ago. I had a bunch of their CDs, & didn’t realize I had all of their stuff on CD & amongst my iTunes library. Yes, the singer, Scott Weiland, died of either alcohol or a drug overdose a few years ago. The band carried on with an EP with Chester Bennington who felt it was too much for him with his role in “Linkin Park” also. Unfortunately he died as well not to long ago.
TINY MUSIC…SONGS FROM THE VATICAN GIFT SHOP 1996
I’m pretty sure this was about the album that caught my attention.
- 4 1999
SHANGRI-LA DEE DA 2001
STONE TEMPLE PILOTS 2010
HIGH RISE w/ Chester Bennington 2013
STONE TEMPLE PILOTS 2018
This last album is with their new singer Jeff Gutt. Runner up on the show “The X Factor”. Well he didn’t win. Who did? This is exactly why I’m opposed to these talent contest shows. He got the last laugh though.
Stephen Colbert’s musical guest Tuesday night was Paramore!
Well, they’re not gone just in serious debt. I like “Gibson/Epiphone” guitars. All of this hipity dipity music the young kids are listening to did this. Is “Fender Guitars” next? Will “PRS (Paul Reed Smith) Guitars” become the next BIG thing for guitar players?
100 best debut albums. No, Nirvana’s “Nevermind” was their 2nd big release after the album “Bleach”
