I fell asleep to “Pearl Jam” the album “Ten”, followed by their album “Vitalogy” work up to pee & fell asleep to their album “VS”

I exercised to “Dire Straits” their “Sultans of Swing” greatest hits album.

Weekly exercise total; 1300 crunches, 150 pushups, & 40 back flexes

So in addition to my exercise, I’m now playing “bass” with Corey, his idea to help me out.  We’re choosing easier songs until my left hand is up to speed.  I get very frustrated trying to play guitar.  Before when I learned, I picked it up learned the notes and basic chords & I was good enough to sing & play in front of an audience.  I never really practiced it.  This week I’ve spent at least half an hour to 1 hour practicing.  It’s a love/hate thing for.  I like doing it, but I hate having to practice something I used to do for fun.  My brain knows what to do, my left hand doesn’t seem to care though.

I’m not playing an actual bass, I’m playing the bass line to the song until my fingers get stronger for actual bass strings.  That’s how I taught myself to play real guitar.  I learned bass lines on acoustic guitar to teach Rob how to play actual bass in University.

After posting on Wednesday, I grabbed my guitar again.  Managed to finally “train” my fingers into playing power chords & a few actual chords.  The change of fingering the chords is slow, but I’m sure it will come eventually.

I was getting a bit down but with Corey’s brilliant idea, me being able to do some of my exercises, & baseball starting soon, I’m in a much better mood.  Great call by Corey noticing I was a little stuck.

We’re learning one song at a time.  Corey & I are Foo Fighters fans.  I figured since we both know the song “Learn to Fly” & it’s pretty easy we’ll start there.  I don’t think Corey has ever sang but he said he’s willing to try.  He asked me, a long time ago if I could teach him.  I don’t know what I’d say other than repetition.  I was terrible when I started, but the more I did it, the better I got at it.  I’m pretty sure being in choir in high school helped.


This director is more known for action movies such as “Paycheck”, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”, “Transformers”, etc.  I’m slightly skeptical about him directing a movie about El Chapo



I was listening to a sports talk show Thursday night.  I’m glad I’m not the only one that thinks the Blue Jays are set up for disaster in LF & 1B.  If this is what they’re sticking with everything else needs to be perfect!

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Eagles of Death Metal”, all 4 albums on shuffle.


Not much time for me today just did my 420 crunches. Then put away the dishes & made a fruit/vegetable blender drink, that’s my breakfast or once in a while “Rice Krispies” or “Cheerios” with 1% or skim milk.

No more Blue Jays talk until they make a move, likely a trade. This is supposed to be the most active trading off season in many decades. I’d rather wait to see what happens instead of gossiping & speculating about what might happen.


Playing baseball was my first hobby, then I joined choir in grade 10 at high school & music became my preferred hobby since I can’t play baseball? Kim & I did play softball on a paper company’s team for a year or two, that was fun while it lasted! I already had the taste of being in a rock band & that’s what I continued to do. I taught myself guitar & just became more of a tenor singer than a bass/baritone singer, since the melodies in my head were higher than my voice was.

Top 50 hard rock & metal front men of all-time…



Favourite rock song of 2015? Tough one for me I picked randomly out of the 3 I like.



Rock titan of 2015. I voted for Randy Blythe due to crap he went through in 2012. Guilty of manslaughter until proven innocent?! Does anybody remember what they were doing exactly 2 years ago? I’ve got the documentary on iTunes, but it is no longer there?



One good band helping out another good band.



It’s started Top 50 albums of 2015. A bunch of “Who?” & “Why?” for me. http://consequenceofsound.net/2015/11/top-50-songs-of-2015/


Article/interview with “Slayer” guitarist Kerry King about the attacks on Paris



This is just ridiculous. He’s gay, it won’t change his voice at all. If you don’t like it, don’t go & don’t sign a messed petition to stop him from doing his job.


Wait………………..Freddie Mercury was gay too! So, you might not like this?


Sinead O’Connor is “safe & sound” after facebook suicide note on Sunday.

http://consequenceofsound.net/2015/11/sinead-oconnor-found-safe-and-sound-after-posting-suicide-note-to-facebook/ Sorry, this is the only song of hers I know. She didn’t write it, Prince wrote it.


I’ll take “Islander” over “Avenged Sevenfold” any day that end’s in “y”



I might leave you at the end of this week or early next week? Slim pickins on facebook.


Songs I like, “Riff Rock High” one of those “as seen on TV” albums. A compilation of ’70s rock hits!
