Weekly total; 7500 crunches, 710 leg lifts, 250 push ups, 400 squats.

80 squats, 1500 crunches, 140 leg lifts & 60 push ups everyday, 5 days a week.

I’d like to see 100 squats a day, 200 leg lifts a day, & 100 push ups a day. It may take a while but I’ll get there eventually.

I didn’t make it to my pushups on Monday, that’s why the total is off a bit. I was tired. Today I managed to do 10 more leg lifts than I have before. The point of doing them on your back is to breathe & keep your abdominal muscles flexed, while raising & lowering your leg at a controlled speed. If I hear a thump when I lower my leg, that doesn’t count, I do it again!

I was given exercises to do away from the Wascana Rehabilitation Center when I left. There’s quite a bit more to get to!

I think I’ve said this before, so sorry if I’m repeating myself? The further away I get from having cancer, the less I think of it. My cancer is long gone. “The line is a dot”

Those who have passed from cancer, well it’s going to take a while for others to feel normal. Nobody needs to worry about me, my cancer, or the future. We’ll cross that bridge when we get there. I exercise 5 days a week to make the crossing of that bridge easier!

Remember, when you go to work I work too. Just shorter hours being paid by disability & unemployment insurance. I exercise 1 ½ – 2 hours a day & write this as mostly the info I want to know & other nibblets for you. That’s how my days work.

I see far too much Metallica news on the horizon. I’m not a fan of Metallica in general. I do own 4 albums though 2 of them are on my iPod & from iTunes. The album with the symphony & the “Garage Inc.” album are on my iPod, but I rarely listen to them. I bought the CD of the “Black” album & “Master of Puppets”, they’re in my closet for good. This new song sounds promising though. I’ll wait to hear it before I buy it. I’m still a skeptic.

EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL

I fell asleep to “ Stitched Up Heart” the debut album that I got last night at 12:00 am Eastern Time “Never Alone”

Falling asleep to an album isn’t the best way to hear or judge it. What I’ve heard I like & of course I’ll listen to it multiple times. It could be one of those albums I end up binge listening to?

I exercised to “Iron Maiden” the album “The Book of Souls”

Exercise total for the week ;7500 crunches, 710 leg lifts, 300 squats, & 250 push ups.

Everything stayed the same this week other than the leg lifts. They went up, then down, & I finally settled on 140 a day. I’ll stay at this plateau for a while. When they seem to easy to do, I’ll likely ad some yoga into the mix?

When I die, multiple decades in the future hopefully, please don’t remember me as “that guy who got cancer when he was 28”? Call me anything but that please, hero & victim don’t ever have to be in the conversation either?

When I was a kid, life was so simple. Recess, candy, colouring books, paint, even in University Rydell & I both thought we’d grow up, get a job & buy a new guitar once a month? Life’s not like that at all! Bills, mortgage payments, most people have kids, work or shift work, etc. As a kid I always thought “Ooo, I can’t wait to grow up & be filthy rich”. It so didn’t turn out that way!

Don’t get me wrong, life is great but in a different way! I get to live with my wonderful wife, I can watch baseball in my underwear (I did that at my parents house too), I can drink alcohol, coffee in the morning etc. It’s great, it’s different but it’s really good!

I was usually home from a day of work, in my underwear, drinking a beer & my younger brother, Mitch, would come home with a friend of his. Most of his friends met me that way. Beer, underwear, & reading an article on the computer in the living room in the basement. I think he got mad at me once & yelled at me once after someone had left? “CHRIS, WHY ARE YOU ALWAYS IN YOUR UNDERWEAR WITH A BEER WHEN I BRING SOMEONE OVER???” That’s just how I roll, I wasn’t going to put on a three piece suit just because my brother was coming home, he’s lucky I was wearing anything at all?

Now it’s just baseball on the TV maybe pants & alcohol during the weekend games or water & carrots or grapes?

Last night we went out for supper with Sherry & James. Left the now buzzed Brewster in their place since he makes too much noise & freak out when he’s here alone

I guess Lzzy Hale got a Metal Hammer Golden God award.

“I’m still flying high from last nights Metal Hammer Golden Gods awards! It was such an honor to perform and I am so humbled to be the first female to win the “Dimebag Darrell Shredder Of The Year” award. Thank you so much to everyone for your vote, and to all my fellow musicians and nominees for making me feel like the little sister of the rock and metal community.
Dimebag, even though you’ve left us, your legend lives on through those you touched along your journey. You continue inspire me to be the best guitarist I can be, and hold on to what makes me unique, because that’s how you lived your life. You were fiercely honest and unapologetic, which is the definition of Metal. This is why, alongside Lemmy and Dio, you are forever a golden god. I will treasure this award forever and I look forward to feeling your presence over my shoulder next time I go over my scales. Speaking of which… Time to go practice!!”

Corey Taylor finds pop music insulting

LANGUAGE!!!!

Cell phones. One of the first things you see on screen at a movie theater is an announcement to turn your phone off. I think that should be at least stated by any band before anyone preforms, probably wouldn’t be that big of a deal. I had a cell phone before I had cancer. I can’t remember who I was seeing or what city it was in? Security at the door was checking everyone for a phone. First they’d ask, “Do you have a phone? If so does it take photos or videos?” I replied “Yes it does”. “Could you please take it back to your vehicle? Otherwise we’ll keep it.” “Yep, no problem”. I already had my phone turned off at the time, taking it back to the vehicle was fine by me, I had 0 intention of using it. I didn’t get cancer that day nor did I die without my cell phone. I haven’t owned a cell phone since Tuesday, February 5th 2008, but I’m here & I’m fine.

I don’t disagree with someone having a cell phone. It’s a personal choice. If you have one please be responsible with it. There’s a time & a place for them, it’s not in a movie theater, music concert or any other public venue. If it rings or vibrates & you have to take it, maybe excuse yourself from your group & take the call elsewhere.

I kind of like the changes iTunes has made for it’s users. Not iTunes Match, terrible software with the launch of Apple Music. They’ve added influences & similar artists to whatever album/artist you’re looking at, that is in your iTunes library! I like that. If it’s someone I’ve never heard of I’ll preview it.

Home Sharing is quite similar to iTunes Match. I don’t recommend iTunes Match though until they fix whatever they messed up with the launch of their streaming site. We no longer pay Apple $27/year for iTunes Match. Match will stream all of our music in my wife’s library as well as mine, on any device, at least when it’s working properly. We could stream our libraries on her cell in the vehicle, our home stereo, etc. Home Sharing does not do that. I have an iPod Classic, I can’t air play my music with that iPod. Kim can with her phone, but only her iTunes library. If we want to play our iTunes in our vehicle, I have to connect it with a USB cable to our vehicle radio, no big deal. Kim’s cell I’m not sure about? As long as I have my computer on, iTunes open & home sharing on, I can play my library on our home stereo.

I have 5 “My Morning Jacket” albums. I had no clue as to who they were when I saw them in Edmonton in 2003 opening for Foo Fighters. Seeing them live is MUCH better than buying an album with the vocals covered in reverb. Here’s an album song I heard in 2003, then bought the CD at the merchandise booth. Imagine this being played by a group of headbangers!

Songs I like, “Nat King Cole” his voice is really good!!!!!

This first song I don’t own, but you might know it?

My Grandmother would sing this quietly to me when I had trouble sleeping at my grandparents house. I was Irene in this case.

I’M A ROYAL TREAT TO HAVE AS A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER

Yes, pun intended. I’m a DQ royal treat as a friend or family member!

I called Kim at work yesterday since I made my lunch of cheese, chicken, sun dried tomatoes, & hot sauce in a wrap. I told her we were almost out of grated cheese, then we chatted about other stuff. I called her back immediately to remind her that the phone call was “All about dat cheese, ’bout dat cheese, no chicken. All about dat cheese, ’bout dat cheese, no chicken, etc.” I’m a delight to live with! See Rachel Gianoli you’re not the only one when we get paired up for Crokinole. Rachel’s “All about dat post, ’bout dat post, no 20. etc.”

OK Apple, iTunes that’s enough! I wanted something done my way, so I did it. All of our iTunes files are perfect on our 2 computers, my iPod, Kim’s iPhone, & iPad. The problem is now Apple’s or iTunes problem. I bought the recently released “Silverball” album by Barenaked Ladies on iTunes, it works fine on every device but our TV/home stereo. Our TV doesn’t even recognize that we own it? I go into Barenaked Ladies & I see 9 or 10 albums in alphabetical order, at the end I see “Rock Spectacle” then “Stunt”? “Silverball” should be in between those albums. SURPRISE! It’s not there! I pre-ordered “Highly Suspect’s” debut album & got 5 songs with my pre-order. 3/5 songs I received are grayed out on the TV. I can get 2 of them to work on our TV. Are those the only songs that will work on our TV when the album is released on Friday? All of this ballyhoo started with the launch of Apple Music Radio on Tuesday, June 30th which I hear is also not so great. There is no way I’ll pay $9.99/month for a crappy radio station subscription. We have a hot deal for Serious XM at the moment for under $10/month we get it. When that sale is done, so is our subscription to Serious XM. I’ve done all I can on my end, now Apple has the ball in their court.

^^You’re welcome!!! That just happened & now it’s stuck in your head!

There are way to many sub genres for metal music. Power, speed, thrash, black, death, nu, etc. For me I hate putting sub genres labels on music. There’s good or bad music. Metal, Rock, Country, Rap, R & B, & Pop. It’s either good or bad to each individual & will differ to each person. Example “Slayer” I need & have one album. After 90% of that album has played, for me personally it get’s old & repetitive. I have what is likely their most successful album “Reign in Blood” not “Raining Men”.

Queens of the Stone Age albums ranked worst to first. I’d have to agree with the worst choice. Their favourite I would have to make my 2nd favourite my favourite would be “…like Clockwork” Dave Grohl played drums in the studio on both of those albums.

http://diffuser.fm/worst-to-first-every-queens-of-the-stone-age-album-ranked/

I love this album! Elton John played on it as well! Very slow melodic piano only songs to this song (about as heavy as they get on this album).

There is currently no way I can get on the bandwagon for “Gorillaz”

If a fan is acting like a moron & ruining the concert for others and security isn’t taking care of the problem, I think if whoever is onstage sees the fan doing it, has every right to kick them out.

Why is Myles Kennedy or Alter Bridge not a household name. Myles has an incredible voice! You don’t need to like him but you should at least know who he is.

Backing vocals on this tune below….

His former band that opened for The Watchmen & headliner Big Wreck back in the day, ’99 or 2000?

Alter Bridge’s first single off of their 1st of 4 albums. Song was all over the radio in Regina radio in 2004.

In his free time, when he’s not singing for Slash or Alter Bridge, he’s been working on a solo album the last 4 years! Alter Bridge’s 1st single off of their 4th album. Myles is currently on tour with Slash.

I’m not a fan of “3 Doors Down”, but this is right on point. Treat other concertgoers with respect. I broke my nose at a festival in ’99 in a mosh pit. My nose was pouring blood. Everybody immediately cleared a path for me to security at the front of the stage/guard rail where I was told where the First Aid tent was. I was missing part of Big Wreck’s set! That’s proper concert etiquette. LANGUAGE BELOW!!!!

I couldn’t care less about Motley Crue’s music, their book “The Dirt” is a REALLY good read! I couldn’t put it down, I finished reading it in 2 days & I’m a slow reader!

I never heard the soundtrack to “Fault in our Stars” but it was a good movie.

OK, Jack White stated late last year that he “can’t afford to tour”, 50 Cent filled for bankruptcy on Monday, yet nobody has changed a thing……WHY? Jack White sold the most vinyl albums in North America last year out of 8 million sold in total! I don’t know the price of a vinyl album? I think I’ve bought one in my 35+ years. I blame digital music at a low if not free price. I love the idea of iTunes. I was sitting on my butt in front of the computer last night, & I thought “Hey, I should check out this album on iTunes”. I did, I liked it & bought it after a preview. Within 3 minutes I thought of an album previewed it & bought it for $6.99. Didn’t leave the house to go to a store & buy it over the course of 45 minutes. My only problem with digital music is, where does the money go?

Remember the ’80s & ’90s? Why did those groups rise to fame & live in mansions while today’s artists are just getting by & don’t get to have that type of lifestyle? I want to own the music I listen to & I do own it through iTunes. There needs to be a change in the dispersal of the money. Apple could survive on $0.50/download, artists management/label could survive on $1.00/download & the artist could get $0-$9/ per album download or $0-$1.00 per song download. But then people would have to pay for music “OH, SNAP!! I CANT AFFORD THAT!”! Really I bought CDs for the average price of $25.00 per CD. Roughly 600 of them. Paying for a product won’t kill you, you just may have to slow done on your music purchases?

I took a TON of stuff for granted, walking, living in a first world country, having clean water & food at my disposal. Most of us never think about those things, me included. It’s just a case of “Absence makes the heart grow fonder” I’m not complaining, I’m alive, I live with my best friend and a cute dog, I have 4 walls around me & clean water. As long as I have those essentials, I can’t complain!

Songs I like. “Lionize” only the album “Jetpack Soundtrack”. Last I checked they had 4 albums on iTunes. They all sounded quite different to me, but this is “the one……” I bought.

LANGUAGE!!!

I like both of these movie series except “Star Wars Episode 1” with WAY too much Jar Jar Binks!
