I fell asleep to “A Perfect Circle” the album “Eat the Elephant”

I exercised to “Burn the Priest” the album “Legion XX” basically Lamb of God’s first name.  This is a covers album.



4 day weekly exercise total; 960 pushups, 800 leg lifts, 400 crunches, 400 squats, 330 tricep pushups, & 160 back flexes.

Well that was dumb!  Resumed my exercise like always on Tuesday!  Even though I have not done any exercise since Friday, May 11th.  Somedays my stupidity amazes me!  Probably most other people too hahahaha!  Rhetorical question, keep the answer to yourself please.

I’m the one that puts all of the pressure on me, nobody else.  This week I got really frustrated with my exercise.  Thinking to myself “I have to do better, I have to do more…etc.”  I also had one of those moments, where I took a step back & thought “Is this what I’ll be doing until I die?”, at that moment I realized I have a lot of family & friends I can count on to help me out!

Americans & the rest of the world are worried about a nuclear war.  Why are Americans afraid?  They’ve got their guns to protect them, & if they don’t own a gun they’ll probably be shot?  They kind of have a bad option.  Would you prefer to be killed in a nuclear war or be shot, especially a civil war?  I’m not joking here.  Just mentioning a sad reality!

These days, I really try not to take anything too seriously.  A couple of people tried to make fun of me on a public Facebook page, they knew nothing about me & I knew nothing about them.  I didn’t see any of the multiple posts where they were acting very immature until my brother tagged me in a response.  Thanks Mitch, let them go at it.  If someone I don’t know on Facebook wants to take a cheap shot at me, so be it.  In the end, they’re the ones who made the comments, I did not reply to my statement about emojis.  Because emojis are a FANTASTIC reason to get upset………………….NOT!




They have 5 albums & 1 EP.  I own their first 2 albums on CD & another from iTunes.  Wikipedia says they’re from Vancouver, British Columbia, I always thought they were originally from a small farming town in Manitoba.  Wikipedia is not always correct with pop culture stuff such as bands, movies, & TV series.  I could be wrong also?  Their sound is that of a rock band that’s influenced by industrial metal, they are NOT a metal group, I would call them an industrial rock band.

I’m not an expert on them, but a lot of my friends are.  I like them quite a bit.  This is another post-grunge group from Canada that were HUGE in the late 1990s & early 2000s.  There’s an album & an EP that were released prior to this album.  Honestly, I haven’t listened much to the album I got from iTunes.


1997        “The Devil You Know”


2001        “BRAND NEW HISTORY”

Dave Grohl can’t listen to Nirvana.  I get it.  An old friend who’s never there.

I’m craving some of Nirvana’s album “Bleach” at the moment, even before I wrote this.


Looks like one of Trump’s favourite conspirators is going to trial!  Later Mr. Jones!



I thought it was a well-deserved moment this week when Ashton Kutcher donated $4,000,000 to Ellen Degeneres’ wild life foundation for the gorillas in Africa!


If any of this is true (which I HIGHLY doubt it is) I’ll go back to buying CDs.  Amazon, here I come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Maybe?  Oh, the lies!  I couldn’t find the link he saw on that site!  Also, you would think iTunes users would get a direct email regarding this?!


Ask Maynard James Keenan a dumb question & he’ll reply with a dumb answer.

I fell asleep to “Our Lady Peace” the album “Naveed”, then “A Perfect Circle” the album “Mer de Noms” & after a pee at 3:30 am “Queen” their “Greatest Hits”.

I emptied the dishwasher to “ I Mother Earth” the album “The Quicksilver Meat Dream”

I exercised to “I Mother Earth” the album “Scenery & Fish”

I exercised before I emptied the dishwasher. I also got through my entire workout today. I’m still quite tired though. I didn’t sleep all that well last night. Kim falls asleep in seconds, I’ll be awake for 30 minutes to an hour. “With or without…” music playing.

This is for anyone & everyone who might find this interesting! Please help me out if you don’t mind? I’ve been sharing this publically on my page, I don’t think it’s helping? Please do what you can to spread the word?

Tomorrow there’s a chance I wont have time for a blog post! Baseball is early tomorrow!!!!

So who is Alex Jones? I only know him as a loud mouth gun supporter. Yes, Piers Morgan went too far with his anti-gun position on CNN. He didn’t call Alex Jones a “very stupid person”, he called someone else that. For me, that’s crossing the line. Calling someone “stupid” on TV is just wrong, it wont solve anything & nobody should feel good after that.

I’m Canadian, I have no clue who Alex Jones is other than a loud mouth who rarely, if ever, listen’s to anybody else’ opinion. I could google him, but I really don’t care to do so.

Kim hates when I watch this stuff, because I’m quite passionate about this stuff when I see it!

I’m not against the Olympics, I just don’t care to watch most of the events. I’ve seen a person dive. Was it good? I don’t know, they hit the water? I’ve watched swimming & volleyball before, I don’t really need to see it again? I’ve seen a 100 meter, 200 meter & a relay before, I’m good. The events at the Olympics seem very similar to the events I’ve seen at previous Olympics. We had it on here briefly last night, diving was on. I watched for a bit, & couldn’t really tell if it was good dive or a bad dive? They hit the water in the pool 10! 5? What was wrong with that dive? That person landed in the water too? I’m lost, I guess I need to be learned?

I guess the “Suicide Squad” soundtrack is good but I’ve only heard bad things about the movie?

AWESOME! I enjoyed “Prophets of Rage’s” original tune. Should be a decent album?
