300 Curls w/ 20 pound dumb bells

180 Shoulder raises/Chest presses w/ 10 pound dumb bells

200 Crunches

200 Leg lifts

100 Squats while balancing on my toes.  (I fell…again…on Wednesday)

100 Back flexes

2 days of yoga


I fell asleep to “I Built The Sky” the album “The Zenith Rise”

I exercised to “Better Than Ezra” the album “Deluxe”


I didn’t do my job on Monday or Tuesday.  I did my weights & such on Wednesday, 15 minutes later my arms were shaking.  Tuesday was TERRIBLE!  I slept fine, woke up around 7:30 am, and wasted the day falling in & out of sleep until almost 1:00 pm.  Got up, had a bite to eat & then parked my lazy ass on the couch waiting to go back to bed.  Wednesday was better but not great.  Got up just after 8:00 am then proceeded to do anything but exercise until a bit after 11:00 am.

Thursday was GREAT!  Got everything done by 1:00 pm & finally felt comfortable playing guitar in a wheelchair, I played for 2:30 hours in the afternoon & about an hour in the evening!  Being comfortable and being in the proper position of upright made a world of difference.  Everything is much easier when I’m comfortable & relaxed!

I sat down on the couch with a coffee to watch the Canadian 24 hour news…WOW…just like every other news station “WERE ALL GONNA DIE”!  Yeah, I was surprised, actually SHOCKED, that Canada had enough news to fill 24 hours too!

Dearest broadcasters,

Please find anything else to broadcast other than Covid-19 stuff & re-runs.  I guarantee that your ratings will spike.


A REALLY bored viewer

I really don’t even watch much TV as it is, & now that it’s only news & repeats I’ve almost forgotten that we have a TV.  With so many people dying from this virus, I gotta ask “Where did all the good people go?”  Who’s spreading this?  Is this Darwin’s sick & twisted theory of natural selection put into action?

I saw that the government is giving small business owners $2000/month for the next 4 months.  I’d take that for a year please?  This is pretty much a guarantee of NOT happening.  I’ll start saving my pennies & continue to cut back/eliminate other non-essential purchases though.  At the very least we’ll have a little more cash on hand!  Either way if I was to buy a guitar it would definitely be a VERY similar PRS.

SE Paul's Guitar - Aqua

Far more important financial matters to take care of.  I’ve got my 4 electric guitars, my acoustic, & 1 future electric.  It was ordered on January 15th & it was supposed to be here in April.  I got an email on March 2nd that it’s been delayed until August.  Can’t do anything about that or this Virus stuff that I’m sure will push it back more.  In the end, I’m getting a new guitar & I’d much rather have it made properly than get a guitar that’s been slapped together in a panic.

The weirdest thing about being isolated is that this is FAR TOO CLOSE to my daily life.  I exercise, talk to my dog, play guitar, bomb around this place in my wheelchair, watch a minimal amount of TV & go to bed.  Wake up &……REPEAT!  Everybody’s complaining about being quarantined for so long?  It’s been…what…2 weeks, try 6 or 7 years, 2 weeks of quarantine is nothing once you get used to it.

Well, to each their own I guess??  Good thing all of those multi thousand dollar guitar amplifiers didn’t have a good distortion channel so the purchase of a $120 effect pedal was needed (I had one….19 years ago).  I have an 8” speaker in my Roland Cube combo.  That pedal is fun to mess around with, for me it was nothing but a toy.  I’ve watched a TON of his videos & he seems to be a really good guy, this is just a matter of taste.



“Nothing but Thieves” have an actual video now for their single off of what I assume to be a near future album.  Other than “Billie Eilish” they’re likely one of the very few ‘new’ (2015) bands I enjoy.

The new album “Gigaton” from “Pearl Jam” is out today.


If you’re getting this through Facebook, give it a like or other reaction, or share it.  That’s the only way of promoting this site, since I’m not profiting from this in any way.
