MONDAYS ARE DIFFICULT!

SURPRISE! PLANS CHANGED! The internet was fairly quiet today, so here it is.

I fell asleep to “Scream”the album “Fumble”

Yes, that’s a young Dave Grohl. “Scream” is the group he dropped out of high school for & was a member of right before he joined “Nirvana”.

I know I said I wasn’t going to do a post today. My wheelchair was supposed to go in for a cleaning & some minor repair work. The second I woke up my stomach was doing some weird stuff? I felt sick. Thought I’d have a bucket beside me all day? I feel fine & I’ve had breakfast that stayed down. Kim called the company for my chair & canceled the appointment for my chair to go in. Better off safe than “sorry”. I’ve got my chair & I feel fine. I guess we’ll schedule it for another day. I’m leary about working out today though, just in case…better to be safe than covered in vomit.

That short time of 2 or 3 days off really makes my muscles sore. After 200 crunches, then things feel OK. I do my squats, 70 leg lifts on my back, then crunches. Followed by 70 leg lifts on my hands & knees, then the push ups that just about kill me. Squats & push ups are by far the most challenging things I do. Squats leave me breathless for a few minutes & push ups are always last or else I don’t have the energy left to do anything else.

Professional sports don’t have a gay problem. The straight individuals in charge have a problem! They can’t accept that not everyone is the same. Yet, somehow Ty Cobb was a notorious jerk, also known for violence and robbery. Yet he’s in the baseball Hall of Fame?

Music rip offs

Another suggestion from a reader. I looked them up & Chevelle was recommended, I’d say that’s a pretty good comparison. “Stellar Circuits” one 5 song EP & 2 singles on iTunes. I haven’t bought anything, but I might?

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver…………………& this is why Quebec won’t abandon Canada. It’s like opening a can of worms. Quebec is a big part of being Canadian!

LAGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alter Bridge shared it……………..new album in September I hear?

I got Batman vs. Superman last night from iTunes since they had the “Ultimate Edition” I was planning on buying, available on blu-ray & DVD July 19th and also for renting on iTunes that day.

The Pretty Reckless shared the iTunes link to this album…

SINGLES & B-SIDES

Facebook link for those who prefer it.

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

I fell asleep to “Third Ion” then a ’70s rock compilation.

I woke up to that same ’70s compilation

I exercised to “Lamb of God” the album “Sacrament”

If you have the album you don’t need a single from iTunes. A single on iTunes is just that, no B-Sides included? I’ve got 60 Foo Fighters B-Sides Most of them were bought on CD. A single & two B-Sides on most of them. Singles on iTunes are nothing more than a cash grab for Apple, who’s stock is on a steady decline from what I hear? I don’t need or want singles on iTunes, I purchase full albums that have the singles on them, so I don’t purchase them. If Apple wants to make money, sell a single along with the 2 or 3 B-Sides! I was never into marketing, but I think that would work? Here are some B-Sides you’ll never hear at the moment if you get your music from iTunes!

Can’t say I’m much of a fan of the music that came from the ’80s, but here you go! Most of it was more miss than hit for me.

Great idea! Here’s the catch though…….they’re expensive & BOOM there goes a tax hike, unless you can find them in a “Walmart” bargain bin. Politicians will have a tough time forcing this idea on the public? Could happen though.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver – Abortion

 

Who listens to “George Michael” on a drive back to Regina after seeing “Trivium” in Saskatoon? Mitch & I having a dance party!

 

So I guess they decided she was lying about her rape for fame, I don’t know anything about her, there is a good chance the court is wrong. No song by Kesha, since I know nothing about her music?

EARLY “RISE TODAY”

I fell asleep to “The 1975” the Self Titled album released in 2014

I woke up to “Stone Temple Pilots” their last studio album with Scott Weiland, Self Titled.

I exercised to “Into Eternity” the album “Dead or Dreaming”

Yep, I woke up around 4:00 am, got out of bed around 5:00 am, had my breakfast. Emptied the dishwasher & put few dirty dishes in it. Then watched a bit of TV & exercised! Not sure why I woke up so early, I didn’t screw up my pills, so I’m not sure? Kim & I did go to bed around 10:00 pm which is early for me, I usually get in bed around 11:00 or 11:30 pm?

Yeah, I watched the Superbowl……………..half time show & that was it. Coldplay, Bruno Mars, & Beyonce did really well. It’s definitely in my personal top 3 half time shows, along with the following clip, & Prince in 2007 where he covered “Best of You” by Foo Fighters, Prince has zippo on www.youtube.com

I didn’t even know they were still together?

There’s country music I like. It’s the southern twang that gets me & drives me nuts. Kim listened to the audiobook of “The Help”, I couldn’t tolerate it, then she bought the blu-ray 😦 Here’s Chris Henderson a Regina based country music artist with no twang.

Hey, I’ve heard the name before, but not the music. “After the Burial”

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?

 

I guess Zakk Wylde (former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist & singer/lead guitar for Black Label Society) is planning to release a “Book of Shadows II” an acoustic solo album.
