I fell asleep to “Opeth” the album “Garden of the Titans” (Live at Red Rocks)

I exercised to “Anthrax” the album “Volume 8: The Threat is Real!”

 

I forgot to take my pills last night before I went to bed.  That happens once in a while.  The pills are in my system so it doesn’t screw me up for the day, I just wake up way too early.  So 3:45 am I was wide awake.  I tossed & turned trying to fall asleep, but no deal.  Kim’s alarm didn’t go off so we got up around 6:15 am.  I’ve had breakfast, exercised, showered & dressed.  The salesman we got my chair from is coming this morning to replace a handle on the back that broke off.

 

Please remember that I was basically in my own little world for 4.5 years.  I didn’t really get to ease in to all of this technology stuff.  For me it was “BAM!  Here’s a bunch of stuff you should learn to use yesterday!”  I

Yes, I recently got a fit bit.  My watch would stop, I’d reset it & it would be fine for about a week.  After doing that MANY times it died completely.  Kim took me to Best Buy.  I got a fit bit for $170 aka WAY TOO MUCH.  Should have gone to Walmart & bought a watch for $20.

We came home I opened the box & went to put it on my wrist, Kim stopped me.  Good grief, you have to download the software with a Bluetooth item.  Kim has a cell phone & an iPad.  Then it had to charge overnight.  I don’t have a mobile device.  If I did, I wouldn’t need a fit bit.  An iPad or cell phone would have the time on it.

If we had gone to a Walmart, they would have set the time for me & I’d put it on my wrist in the vehicle or in the store.  I don’t need to know how many steps I’ve taken, I’m in a wheelchair!  How is it deciding what a step is?  I found out in the Wascana Rehabilitation Center that my resting pulse was 98/minute.  Thanks for confirming that fit bit.

So now I have a watch that I have to swipe if I want to know the time.  Personally I think this is absolutely nuts, should have gone to a jeweler or a Walmart.  I’m not even 39 yet, but these hijinks & shenanigans are already driving me crazy (and that’s a very short drive)!

How is this an improvement on something so simple & ready to use at the point of purchase?  “Technology can’t screw up a watch”, oh yes it can!  Look what it did to phones!

All I need is a watch that will tell me the time.

 

How is a band like “The Killers” considered a rock band & getting coverage on Facebook from www.loudwire.com?  No disrespect intended, I’m not a working musician or anywhere close to being one, but REALLY?

 

OK ______ now you’re ripping apart ‘System of a Down’, you’re done.  NEXT please!  So the drummer loves ______ but made a protest song against Bush Junior while he was in power?  I’ll take Bush Junior over _______ any day!

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I went to Boston while Bush Jr. was President, now I’d really have to think about that.  Will this guy let me in?  Once I’m in will he let me out?

 

BILLY TALENT

They have 5 studio albums out & 2 live albums out.  I have 1 studio album of theirs.  I checked out a few other albums but the guy’s voice just bothers me.  Nothing against him, he gets the notes, he has the vocal range, his voice just bothers me & I listen to some death metal.  Yes, they’re another Canadian rock band.  I just own their 2nd studio album.  The first studio album was HUGE when it was released but I wasn’t a fan.  I heard their first single for their 2nd album & thought “Hey, this song sounds really good!  WOW it’s Billy Talent!”  I usually like a bands entire catalogue, but this is one of the handful of musicians I can deal with owning one album from.  They’re not terrible by any means, just not a band for me.  I will say their guitar player does not make it easy for himself.

I fell asleep to “Smashing Pumpkins” the album “SHINY & OH SO BRIGHT VOL. 1 / LP: NO PAST.  NO FUTURE. NO SUN”

I exercised to “Muse” the album “Simulation Theory”

 

Please donate to the Canadian Red Cross for my birthday on January 30th?  Still 7 weeks left to donate.  I don’t even know whose blood is in me, however, it did save my life.  The goal is $1000, just started & were at $60.  I used to donate blood, but now I can’t.  Donate money, blood, refreshments after a blood donation, or any way you can, please?

Kim told me on the weekend not to make any plans, so I didn’t.  She comes home from work yesterday & tells me “We’re going here on this day & here after that, then these people are coming here & later on these people are coming here.”  She’s hilarious, but it’s all marked down & I’m up for it.  This is why I let her make the plans or include her in an email or Facebook message.

She’s working from home today.  She’s been feeling like there’s a cold coming on since Sunday.

Every day I think to myself “I’ll take it easy on myself”.  Then I go all out to achieve the amount I have set out for myself.  I do the full amount & realize that “OH SNAP, I’ll be sore tomorrow”!  I didn’t pace myself in to this year, I just went all out beginning January 2nd, that was dumb on my part.  Not too painful to stop, just enough to tell my body “HEY, IDIOT, PACE YOURSELF!”

No hot water Monday.  1 of the 2 water heaters died aka I festered in my filthy sweat all day.  Tuesday it was replaced aka then I smelled & felt better!  On Tuesday, I did crash my head on the inside top of the fridge.  I need to stand up for something on the top shelf of the fridge, 2nd shelf of the upper cupboards, or the 2nd shelf of the pantry.

 

I guess I’d better get my sorry butt to the movies.  I missed “Bohemian Rhapsody” in the theaters & “Aquaman” could be missed in theaters also!

 

We did watch “Bird Box” on Netflix.  I highly recommend it.  It’s a thriller, not a horror movie.

 

Hear the late Chester Bennington on Lamb of God guitarist, Mark Morton’s, solo album.

 

Here’s part of the reason I have issues with country music.  The main reason is, it’s pop music with a thick Southern accent.  I really have issues with any Southern accent.  Kim was listening to the audiobook for “The Help” & then the movie, I couldn’t handle the southern accent, but I made it through the movie.

Also, someone please explain to me how does Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum & many more fit into the country music genres?  How different is their music to Taylor Swift’s pop now or Taylor Swift’s country & now pop?

I know I’ll get some backlash on this since I listen to metal & rock.  I’ll take some older style country music.  Like the Walmart yodeling kid.  At least he’s doing actual country music instead of generic pop music with a twang.

Here’s a country music fan on the state of country music.

 

 

THE BIG 4 OF METAL

Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, & Anthrax.  I like all 4 bands, Slayer in small doses though.  They’re all great & I think out of the 4 Metallica might be the most remembered when they retire.  Slayer are on their final tour.

My question is, are Metallica a metal band, a rock band or am I jaded?  In Regina our rock station only plays the odd Metallica song, but nothing from the other bands in the big 4.  Is it because they’re generic enough to play on the radio or because they’re a house hold name?  I can guarantee you’ll never hear the other 3 bands on the radio in Regina, maybe Anthrax but not likely.  Another question, why wasn’t it the big 5?  Pantera was a power house, they should have been included!

I’ve heard many songs from Metallica on the radio though, I like Metallica I’m not trying to dump on them.

Now, with Slayer retiring, who will take their place in the big 4?  I’ve heard other people mention Lamb of God, which would be great for me, but not for other fans of metal.

Don’t worry, these are the radio friendly rock songs by Metallica.

 

So, would you classify these songs as metal or rock?  These are some of the Metallica songs that are played on the radio.  I’d put their first 5 albums & the recent album as metal, pretend St. Anger was never made & call the other albums rock albums.  How would you break them down?

Do you have a question about stage 4 brain cancer?  Ask if you do!

I fell asleep to “Terrifier” the album “Weapons of Thrash Destruction”

I tallied up my exercise totals so far for this year & here it is; 4800 crunches, 5470 leg lifts, 7230 pushups, 2145 tricep pushups, 1860 back flexes, & 2390 squats.  Still a bit disappointing to me.

 

Kim & I went to a boxing event/fundraiser at “The Conexus Arts Center”.  The local “Lonsdale Boxing Club” where Kim used to go, with other boxers from Saskatchewan against an Irish boxing club.

I can’t watch boxing on TV but live I find it very entertaining!  I don’t know that much thought went into this though?  “Let’s invite an Irish boxing club & their fans here on March 16th, fill the Irish fans with alcohol as they get primed for St. Patrick’s Day.”  Hahahahaha!

At least we weren’t paying for the banter or music.  “Regina’s Rock Station 104.9 The Wolf” hosted the show, & now I know why I stopped listening to that radio station oh so long ago!  Michael Ball aka Ballsy from the morning show was the M.C.  Most rock fans say “Less talk, more rock”, not for me Friday evening.  “Less talk, less generic rock, more box!”  Way too much filler, not enough killer!  At first I thought Kim took me to a Nickelback show?  Pyro, lights, & Nickelback booming over the P.A. system.  I started to think “What did I do that made her mad at me?”  Nothing, 2 Nickelback songs followed by some of my preferred music.  Led Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, & Big Sugar.  Fun night though.  I quite enjoy live boxing.  11 fights, 3 rounds of 1-2 minutes in length in total.

Sorry if you like Nickelback, I don’t hate them, I choose not to listen to them.  If you’re a fan, that’s great that you’ve found a modern rock band that you enjoy.

Saturday/St. Patrick’s day we stayed in & watched a couple of movies.  “I, Tonya” & “Justice League”.  We rented “I, Tonya” which was really good but I don’t need to see it again.  We bought “Justice League” on Tuesday, it was AWESOME!  Everyone says it’s so bad, I absolutely disagree!  I must be off my rocker, because I really enjoyed “Batman vs. Superman”, “Suicide Squad”, & “Justice League”!  “Wonder Woman” was just OK for me.  My only issue with “Wonder Woman” was that it was a period piece.  From what I know Wonder Woman did not intervene in any war?  But what do I know.  All of these other movies are works of science fiction, check your brain at the door, enjoy your popcorn, & be entertained for a few hours.  I don’t know what everybody’s looking for in a comic book/action movie, because I thought “Justice League” was among the best comic book movies made!  Superman’s moustache was un-noticeable to me.

Today, we went for brunch with my brother & hopefully future sister-in-law.  No pressure bro!  Now it’s time to hard boil some eggs, cook some fish, do some more laundry, watch a spring training game, etc. & get ready for the week ahead.

 

BIG WRECK

I was finally 19, legal bar age, & was able to see this band that an older co-worker was raving about.  WOW, he was right!  This band was AMAZING!  The original 4 members dropped out of “The Berkley School of Music” to create Big Wreck.  1 Canadian & 3 Americans.  Ian Thornley, the vocalist by vote of the band, was the only Canadian in the group, yet they toured Canada 3 or 4 times a year.  I always went, I couldn’t get enough of them.  If they were in Regina, I was there!  They released their 2nd album in 2001 & broke up in 2002.  2002 was the last time I saw them.  However I saw them a minimum of 10 times during those 4 years.  They disbanded & Ian Thornley started a new band called “Thornley” for me they were OK.  They released 2 albums in 10 years.  I read many newspaper articles that Ian Thornley was interviewed for & stated his unhappiness while doing “Thornley”.  2012 Big Wreck reassembled with a different line up.  3 guitarists, bass player, & a drummer.  Only Ian Thornley & guitarist Brian Johnson were in the original line up.  Not that it matters but Brian Johnson was now the only American in the group.  The 3rd guitarist left since he wanted to spend more time with his family.  Since 2012, Big Wreck has released 3 full length studio albums & a live EP with a cover of “The Cars” “Good Times Roll”.  Here come the Big Wreck songs & the last 2 are from the 2 “Thornley” albums………………….

Here’s one song from each “Thornley” album.  He makes it very clear that this was a band, not a solo project.

 

This is well done but don’t mess with classics, like an Elton John song.

I fell asleep to “Corrosion of Conformity” album “No Cross No Crown, followed by “Kelly Clarkson” the album “Meaning of Life”, followed by “Chevelle” the album “Sci-Fi Crimes” & finally “I Mother Earth” the album “Dig”.  Takes me a while to fall asleep, unlike Kim she falls asleep about 15 seconds after she hits the bed.

I exercised to “Fall Out Boy” the album “M A N I A “, followed by “Halestorm” the album “Live in Philadelphia”.

 

150 pushups a day should count as cardio.  My heart beat goes through the roof & I’m out of breath.  I roll onto my side just to catch my breath!

I always ask myself this question.  When I was diagnosed with brain cancer was God testing me or was the Devil trying to kill me?  Much like the extreme black metal bands in Norway.  Why burn down a church because Christianity is forced upon them?  You can’t kill religion, as far as I know?  I’m religious but I don’t go to church.  Does that make me a bad person?  I don’t think so.

Does listening to hard rock & metal make me a bad person?  I don’t think so.  Why do I listen to mostly rock/metal?  Mainly because of the music.  When I go to a rock/metal concert I know I won’t be judged.  It’s a small niche market where outsiders tend to go.

All through high school I didn’t fit in with any group.  I hung out with 3 other guys & the 4 of us didn’t really fit in with any other group.  We were the self-named nothings.  That was OK with me.  Timothy Wong & I also hung out with Fay & Jan.  Those 2 groups made me feel accepted.  They’re all great people.  Timothy & I have been really good friends since grade 9.  Fay and I have known each other since kindergarten.  Fay introduced Tim & I to Jan early on in high school (probably grade 8 or 9).  I hung out with people who didn’t judge me. Tim, John, Guy, Jan, & Fay.

 

 

 

 

Members of “Tool” say they don’t put their music on digital platforms because it would be too easy for the consumer to manipulate the files to only the songs they want to hear.  That’s weird, I can do that with all of the “Tool” albums I have on CD.  Everybody is streaming or downloading music now.  Does this mean “Tool” will make the jump to releasing their next album on digital platforms, streaming sites & iTunes?  Will it be a CD/vinyl because of the artwork & import it to iTunes?

Looks like “Slayer” is done also.

http://loudwire.com/slayer-lamb-of-god-anthrax-behemoth-testament-final-tour/

Unfortunately I’m not a big Slayer fan.  I’d be there for Lamb of God & Anthrax

Neil Diamond is retiring too.  Seems like out with the old & in with the new.  “Rush”, “Slayer”, & “Neil Diamond”.

https://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/neil-diamond-retires-from-touring-due-to-parkinsons-disease-w515759

Toronto Blue Jays short stop is 33 years old now.  He’ll make $20,000,000 this year & next year.  2020 & 2021 he’ll make $14,000,000 & $15,000,000.  The young (19 years old) short stop in AAA ball will be ready in the middle of 2019.  If they can’t move Tulowitzki’s contract, platoon them at short stop.

Josh Donaldson (32 years old) the third baseman has 1 year at $23,000,000.  I’d sign him for the 2019 season, maybe the 2020 & 2021 season if he agrees to play first base or another position in 2020.  They have another Top 10 prospect in the AAA system who should be ready in the middle of 2019, might as well platoon them as well or move Donaldson to first base.  It’s not my money, so it could be a pipe dream?

Friday night was very, very tame.  We stayed home, had a meal of fend for yourself, watched the movie “Collateral Beauty” and went to bed around 10:30pm.  Good movie, just very slow all of the way through!

Saturday Kim went out groceries, while I cranked the stereo to “Diemonds” and did some dishes & cleaned Brewster’s throw up!

Sunday we actually went out for my cousin’s baby’s baptism.  A lot of my grandparent’s friends I haven’t seen in a whole.  I had too much lunch & Kim made the mistake of leaving me in the vehicle with peanut M & M, they’re long gone now.

Tomorrow I’ll begin some light workout finally.  I’ve hit my limit for claiming chiropractor appointments on my taxes.  When I saw him last week, he gave me the OK for light exercises!  FINALLY!

 

Listening for the weekend.

Did some dishes & such to “The Watchmen” all 5 albums on shuffle.  I miss them when I hear them.

LANGUAGE IN THE FIRST CLIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don’t feel as though you need to open every link.

Do we really need labels & barriers to define everyone?  International women’s day, #LGBT, religious holidays, etc.  Not everyone celebrates everything about themselves?  If you want to celebrate something without harming anyone, go right ahead.  You would hope by 2017 we’d have that figured out by now, but NOPE! I know that’s not how everyone sees it, I don’t.  It’s all good with me, I’m sure someone will take it the wrong way & start a war because everybody is trying to fit into everyone else’ perfect little box.  Guess what?  The world is much larger than that little box.  I’m Christian, some of my friends aren’t, and that’s fine by me.  I’m not gay, I know some who are, no big deal.  You’re NOT supposed to be like the next person.  Ricky Gervais puts the entire religious deal perfectly.

I just worry that all of these labels will make people live targets for being a civilian?  There is a BIG difference between Religious & Extremist.  You don’t need to fear a religion or a religious individual or anyone for that matter unless they’re holding a weapon.  Talk to them, you might be surprised?

I understand an individual’s desire to fit in with a crowd.  I just worry that the crowd will be more susceptible to other groups’ hatred.

 

Sorry baseball stuff I’d like to address, to get it off my chest.  This winter the President and the General Manager, both 1 year into their Blue Jay career, had 2 things they wanted/needed to do.  They wanted players that were younger & more left handed hitters.  They got one guy who I hope never touches a defensive glove, but he’s a switch hitter, he literally hits from both sides of the plate!  Great we’ll keep him!  Now with spring training about ½ way through more players are finding out their role for the year.  Guess what?  They have 2 younger & left handed players they had go through their minor league system!  21 year old first baseman Rowdy Tellez & 20 something year old outfielder Dalton Pompey.  Right there you’ve got your fielding & hitting problems solved Pompey can play LF while hitting leadoff & Tellez can play 1B & hit as an RBI guy.  As for the 2 current Jays go at those positions, Smoak & Upton, package them together for another decent utility player!

I just worry that all of these labels will make people live targets for being a civilian?  There is a BIG difference between Religious & Extremist.  You don’t need to fear a religion or a religious individual or anyone for that matter unless they’re holding a weapon.  Talk to them, you might be surprised?

I understand an individual’s desire to fit in with a crowd.  I just worry that the crowd will be more susceptible to other groups’ hatred.

 

Sorry baseball stuff I’d like to address, to get it off my chest.  This winter the President and the General Manager, both 1 year into their Blue Jay career, had 2 things they wanted/needed to do.  They wanted players that were younger & more left handed hitters.  They got one guy who I hope never touches a defensive glove, but he’s a switch hitter, he literally hits from both sides of the plate!  Great we’ll keep him!  Now with spring training about ½ way through more players are finding out their role for the year.  Guess what?  They have 2 younger & left handed players they had go through their minor league system!  21 year old first baseman Rowdy Tellez & 20 something year old outfielder Dalton Pompey.  Right there you’ve got your fielding & hitting problems solved Pompey can play LF while hitting leadoff & Tellez can play 1B & hit as an RBI guy.  As for the 2 current Jays go at those positions, Smoak & Upton, package them together for another decent utility player!

20 years?!  Let it go instead of digging up the past.  Solving the case won’t bring him back to his friends & family.  Unless they need a type of closure let him RIP

 

Best Thrash metal albums of the 21st Century so far.  I don’t use subgenres when discussing music.  A lot of it doesn’t help me with anything?
