EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL

I fell asleep to “Eagles of Death Metal” the album “Death by Sexy”

I exercised to ”Corrosion of Conformity” 6 albums on shuffle.

Exercise total for the week; 5000 crunches, 180 squats, 120 leg lifts, 60 pushups, 20 minutes of planking.

Now I just want to curl up in the fetal position on the couch & cry. My muscles are that sore.

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

All of this exercise & you’d think I’d look ripped! Not so. I still have more T-Shirts that don’t fit than those that do fit. I’m much lighter than I was going into the hospital than I am now. I was 265 pounds, right now I’m somewhere close to 240 as of a few weeks ago. My frame is quite big, I’ll never be under 200. I think somewhere between 210-220 is where I should be. At the moment my dominant/right calf looks like a chicken wing after you’ve striped the meat off of it. My left calf looks decent. Either way my legs are SEXY……………….a little furry but still SEXY!

I think I’ve figured out what the most beneficial exercises are for me at the moment. Squats, exercise bike, walking, stairs, leg lifts on my hands & knees, crunches. I need some more upper body strength but that’s not high on my priority list at the moment. I’m in not bad shape, for a guy in a wheelchair, but all of my weight/fat went right to my belly.

I graduated high school at 185 pounds. When I got to University I read my text books every night but I’d need a study break. I’d leave the book open on my desk in my room & grab 20 pound weights, do 20 curls on each arm, some sit ups & push ups. I take a study break & do that about twice a day/evening. I remember I’d ride the exercise bike in the basement while watching a movie & ride it for however long the movie was.

Baroness release new video. I really like their most recent album “Purple”

Cheap Trick interview with Consequence of Sound on their induction to the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame

REALLY! This needs to change like before Napster happened. $0.99 FOR A 15 SONG ALBUM ON SPOTIFY??????? Tell your employer you’ll work for 3-4 months for $0.99. Musicians are doing it, might as well join in???????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Or rent the album 20 times????????

Star Wars: Episode VII was fantastic in the theater & also at home with surround sound. Now I should watch “Top Gun” with our surround sound!!!!

I wonder if the sequel will be any good?

3 versions of the same song & it’s just an extremely catchy song to me in any form!!

Oh yeah, that little TV show ended last night maybe you’ve heard of it? American Idol. I’ve watched it occasionally over the years. Didn’t watch the first season at all. I just really liked some of the stuff Kelly Clarkson released & I saw Phillip Phillips a few years ago. The guy who always gets compared to Dave Matthews. Other than that, I just found it to be a talent contest on a LARGE stage. 3 or 4 judges narrow it down to the top 10 they like, then they tell you ‘OK, these 10 we deem worthy of winning this contest. Great marketing tool, but the subject is/was as subjective as it gets. I would have an idea as to who would win & it was never who I had chosen in my mind. They’re all good at what they do, I don’t necessarily like it all. How many of the musicians I listen to would do well on the show, other than the 2 winners I do listen to? Maybe 2 or 3 at best?

This is how fast I’ll abandon my computer today. I have no cell phone or tablet/iPad, catch you on the weekend update! Monday, I haven’t decided yet if I’ll be online at all?

However you’re getting this, please pass it along?

TODAY HASN’T GONE ACCORDING TO PLAN

I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “Silence in the Snow”

I exercised to “Chevelle” all 7 albums on shuffle.

The video for Chevelle’s video totally reminded me of the video by “Pearl Jam” for ‘Jeremy’

Brewster was throwing up after a lot of gagging/coughing, all while I was doing my exercises. I had to stop, get in my chair, & clean up his puke. Then I wiped his face since he had a long string of it that almost went down to the floor, then gave him some rice to settle his stomach. He didn’t eat or drink much at all yesterday despite there being a full bowl of food & one of water.

I’m here, I’d just prefer to work out & watch Star Wars : Episode VII that Kim graciously picked up on her way home Tuesday. Music & movies I always prefer to have the actual product in my hand. I’m out of space for CDs so I purchase them on iTunes mostly. As for movies & TV series, I still have a bit of room left on my shelf.

I think if people want to actually purchase music & have a fair amount of the money go to the musicians, vinyl sales will sky rocket & then maybe CDs? Vinyl records never really stopped they just slowed down a bit in sales. Record players have been on a steady increase where as CD players have been on a steady decline in sales.

I’ll give you an exercise total at the very least tomorrow! Also a very short exercise total on Friday. Busy weekend starts Friday for us!

Is it me or does 1990s TV seem to be the in thing at the moment?

Yep the series finale for American Idol tonight. It’s been on long enough, 15 seasons & I missed the first one. I’m not going to even try to avoid it. I don’t like it, but I watch it & the person I’d choose to win is never chosen. I had 3 of them that got to Hollywood week, & I’ll never hear from them again probably.

EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL (4 DAYS)

I fell asleep to first “Auf Der Maur” the entire 12 song self titled album (You may know here as the bass player from ‘Hole’, then ‘Smashing Pumpkins’). Then I fell asleep during “Lamb of God” the album “VII Sturm Und Drang”

Woke up to pee, that’s getting annoying, came back to bed a put on “Linkin Park” the album “Meteora”

I exercised to ”Into Eternity” all 5 albums on shuffle!

4 days of exercise & I just felt lazy this week, still did a work out everyday, just not as much. I did hit a high point today, ever since Kevin Hart said what he did for exercise on ellen, I figured there’s no reason I can’t do the same……………………….I did 1000 crunches today! If he can do 1000 sit ups a day, I can do 1000 crunches in a day did it hurt? Yes! But did I achieve my goal, today I did! My abs are in very good shape, it’s the 1 ½ inch of fat over top that’s the problem.

Here’s the 4 day total 120 squats, 160 push ups, 80 leg lifts, 1600 crunches.

Spring training ends on Saturday 1 game tonight in Montreal & another tomorrow both are Toronto vs. Boston. The Jays fly to Tampa Bay for the season opener on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Rays for 4 games. With the offense Toronto has for however long, I expect a minimum of 6 runs/game with a handful of stinkers on occasion & I don’t think 100W-62L is out of the question this year. I can see them trading Edwin Encarnacion at the end of July if they think they can sign José Bautista. Edwin maybe 4 years younger but he swings a bat mostly where as José plays a position & hits home runs. Edwin has back issues from standing on the turf at the Rogers Center/Sky Dome.

Thursday’s episode of Netflix & Chill courtesy of Consequence of Sound!

21 embarrassments in rock music in the last 30 years. Metallica’s album “St. Anger” ticked off a TON of they’re hardcore fans, if it’s not on this list, it should be. Zero production & zero guitar solos.

Weezer has a new album out today called “The White Album”. I like Weezer, but I’m not a huge fan, I’m a casual fan.

I like the singles really the rest of each album doesn’t do it for me. I went through iTunes & made a Greatest Hits album of their singles from their previous releases.

According to Metallica drummer, Lars Ulrich, the mocumentary “This is Spinal Tap” is a horror story. I never understand what he says publically?

He didn’t win American Idol I think he reached number 4? I was really looking forward to his album release, but it just wasn’t for me. Zakk Wylde, Ozzy guitarist, appeared with him on American Idol.

I’m assuming this is his 2nd or 3rd album? He was on the show a few years ago, when country music singer Scotty McCreery won.

AMERICAN IDOL/EXERCISE TOTAL

I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the debut “Self Titled” album

I exercised to “A. D. D.” the only album “Core” & changed it to “Alter Bridge” the album “ABIII”

I only listened to half of this album, just a portion of my workout.

Exercise total over 4 days. 90 squats, 200 push ups, 1260 crunches & 30 minutes of yoga.

American Idol confuses me & I’m 36. It’s not that the contestants are much younger & more talented than I’ll ever be. I’ve decided to just watch it & not even try to avoid it. Final season, I might as well? Somebody hit a BIG note, that’s exactly what the judges want to hear. Last year I remember the same judges saying “Hit a big note but know when to not use it” paraphrasing that. I’m 36 years old & that confuses me, how do you think a 14 year old would respond to that?

Yes, I have Dave Grohl’s autograph from a touring one day Canadian festival that stopped in almost every province in the summer of 2000, & yes, I almost peed with joy & excitement when I got it! It’s in a frame here with a poster that drummer Taylor Hawkins signed at a show in Saskatoon about a month after I had been diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer. I have 4 of the 5 Foo Fighters autograph’s. Guitarist Pat Smear is the only one I don’t have.

Well that would be a first. I know David Bowie has worked with Dave Grohl a few times. I’ve heard one song they did together.

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!!!!!!!!

GOOD GRIEF! I would hate to be a Toronto Blue Jays analyst at the moment. I was watching “Prime Time Sports with Bob McCown” yesterday. Mondays & Fridays the first hour of his show is set aside to take calls from anyone that wants to talk about a major North American sport. It was Monday, December 7th. Every call was a Blue Jays fan talking about “Why didn’t Toronto sign David Price?” I think it’s time to let it go. He signed with Boston last week! IT’S DONE, IT’S OVER!! Complain all you want, nothing will change his mind or contract. He signed with Boston for $31,000,000/year. Personally that’s WAY TOO MUCH, especially for a pitcher that plays every 5 days & has yet to win a game in the playoffs. Even I’m getting sick of hearing about David Price! “LET IT GO” ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Disney did!

Give the site a moment to load all of the links. It takes a bit for my computer & it crashes on Kim’s cell.

Metal fans get a bad reputation because of the music we like. Not every metal fan or band member is a flat out metal head though. The metal musicians and fans are some of the kindest people I’ve met. I’m in a wheelchair. When I go to The Exchange to see a local metal band play, TONS of people stop & say hello, shake my hand, chat for a bit, help me out if needed, hold open a door, etc. Nobody goes out of their way to be harmful to anyone. There’s a bad seed in every crowd so I don’t necessarily hang around those people. The people I know that play or listen to aggressive music won’t judge you on what you listen to for music. They know others can instantly judge them by their metal music. I’m not afraid to tell anyone what I listen to. Here’s a few examples of what I listen to….

It’s subjective. A song does not have an influence as to who you are! You like it because you like it, so why hide it? The only music fans I’ve met who don’t consider their music offensive are country music fans. It doesn’t bother me, I do enjoy a small sampling of country music here & there. It’s a lot like extremely heavy metal. Good for a bit, but not for more than one album a day. Slayer is as offensive as a Southern twang country artist to me! Kim was listening to “The Help” audio book on the way to who knows where, too much twang for me. I’m not trying to rattle anyone’s cage in particular, these are just off the top of my head examples……

I did it! I watched “Silence of the Lambs” with Kim. I put on my big boy pants, sucked it up & just asked Kim to hold me when I got scared. I haven’t watched that movie in over a decade. It’s not that freaky of a movie, but when they show Anthony Hopkins in a straight jacket & the brown muzzle/mask, I pee a little then curl up into the fetal position. Anything with Anthony Hopkins in it gives me the HEEBIE JEEBIES now! Blue Jays play a late game tonight. I’ll likely sit through a sequel, then watch the game?

I’ll tell you right off the bat, I DON’T VOTE OR FOLLOW POLITICS OR & here’s why. I get a kick out of watching greasy scum bags doing commercials to “help” their campaign by telling you the opposition can’t do this or that. Whoever’s commercial it is will promise you the moon though. I have 0 desire to sift through the nonsense & ballyhoo as to who I’d vote for. When politicians can honestly tell me how & what they can do then I’ll consider voting? Here’s 2 examples of what I’ve seen right out of the gate……
