SORRY

My back is still messed up.  I’ll post a long blog tomorrow, & get cracking on a weekend update.  This is usually a 6 days a week thing.  I haven’t exercised other than stretching as I was told to by the chiropractor.  Could be a quiet week next week too?  Without exercising every day, I get bored!  I feel like I should be doing something, then I move & remember why I’m not.

IT’S THURSDAY, WERE IN LIMBO

Well I guess it is Cinco de Mayo

I fell asleep to “Tremonti” the new album “Dust”

I exercised to “Coldplay” the newest release “A Head Full of Dreams”

We we’re running a little late to be at a party before I was sick. Kim was going into the shower & asked if I could make some macaroni & cheese. I got the water boiling in the kitchen went back to my X-Box to finish off a level in the original trilogy of Lego Star Wars & completely forgot I had water boiling in the kitchen? Oops?

TECHNOLOGY

I fell asleep to “Dream Theater” the latest release “The Astonishing”

I exercised to “Tenacious D/The Self Proclaimed Greatest Band in the World” the album “The Pick of Destiny”. Here’s something from their first album that isn’t vulgar or offensive.

Followed by a lot of silence. The album wasn’t long enough.

To tie in with yesterday’s theme I guess? North America & many other places have made huge strides with technology. You can have a computer on your wrist or in your pocket, carry 20,000 songs with you, yet not a mere fraction of a second goes by that one human is taking the life of someone else all over the world. So what do we turn to if were attacked by a senseless act of violence? Technology, we’ll just make a bomb bigger & more powerful than our enemies have? As much as I’d like it, world peace certainly doesn’t seem realistic in my short time here? We’ve got all of these advances in technology & it seems that so much of it is going into weapons to freak someone out. Why? Money, religion, power, land, etc. It’s 2016 yet we’re still dealing with these minor things like sexuality, race, drugs, violence. When does someone say “Enough already”?

I don’t want to spend my life looking over my shoulder, & I don’t intend to! Why? I’m saying “Enough already”! Remember the rule “treat others as you’d like to be treated”? Yeah, I forgot it for a while also. It makes sense though, doesn’t work with everyone all of the time though.

Well summer’s almost here, I’m nowhere close to my lovely swimsuit body, ah well. I don’t really need it if I plan on staying by the vent with the air conditioning on, watching baseball & football while having a beer or two?

I just needed to not listen to “Tremonti”, “Ben Harper”, & “Rob Zombie” for a bit. That’s almost everything I’ve been listening to since Friday.

WEEKEND UPDATE

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

https://www.facebook.com/A-Million-Miles-Away-Blog-1597618270456002/?ref=h

Really quiet weekend here. I almost had a nap Saturday afternoon. Other than my dad/ ONAV booth at the home & garden show. We really didn’t do much. Saturday was really quiet, even the spring training Blue Jays game was canceled due to buckets of rain coming down. Other than going to the home & garden show on Friday, while Kim was at work, I didn’t leave the house.

Look at that Tremonti’s lyric video for the song “Dust”

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Bryan Adams” “Greatest Hits”

 

60 leg lifts today. 30 on my hands & knees (each leg I count 1, 1, 2, 2 insets of 15) & 30 on my back while keeping my abs flexed. Now my exercise is done for the week, & I need it. I get quite tired when the end of the week comes. If I can do it, set aside 20-30 minutes to do some type of exercise daily? I’m in a wheelchair but my legs work, I just have no balance, but it’s coming as time passes!

 

I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “Vengeance Falls”

 

So according to a fancy map I saw, Saskatoon is 147 miles away…..& it’s flat with 2 turns, that’s why it feels like a 10 hour drive?

LAST SEASON FOR AMERICAN IDOL

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Muse” the album “Absolution”

 

Squats aren’t that fun. Muscles I haven’t ever thought about are killing me today. I’ve done a total of 100 squats this week. That’s enough squats for the week. I changed it up & did 50 push ups & yoga to stretch some painful muscles. I’ve got the mind of someone in their 20s & the body of someone in their 90s. Yet I haven’t turned 36 yet?

 

We all knew American Idol wouldn’t go on forever. I’m assuming people got bored with the platform. Not all of the winners went on to stardom, yet kids continued to audition. I couldn’t point out what went wrong other than it’s been around for 15 seasons, & FOX wanted something new? That’s just my guess. It’s weird to think some kids don’t know a world without American Idol? It’s a great marketing tool, but how many winners of the show went on to large success? I could only name a few at best. Where did the 2014 winner go?

 

Fall Out Boy video feat. Demi Lovato

 

These are just funny, hidden baseball tricks that make the opposing player look like a fool. Yes, I’ve been on both sides of these plays.

 

I saw some photos of some artists. “Kongos” is finishing the vocals for their album. “Linkin Park” is in the studio Chester Bennington was shown recording vocals. “Alter Bridge” are writing/rehearsing for their 5th album & will be in the studio “soon”. Looks promising for new music this year. If anyone is coming to a place near you, I encourage you to go out & support your preferred musician. This free music is hurting the industry. I should get out to more shows as well. We have an actual money tree, but it just grows leaves, not printed money……………BAD, MONEY TREE, BAD!!!!!!!!
