I fell asleep to “Ed Sheeran” the album “Divide”

I exercised to “Metallica” the new album “Hardwired……………….to Self-Destruct”

 

400 leg lifts, 160 pushups, planking, yoga, 200 crunches & 80 back flexes this past week.

That’s 100 leg lifts, 40 pushups, 20 back flexes, planking, 100 crunches & yoga 5 days a week.  First thing I do when I leave the bedroom, then breakfast & a shower.

I just added the crunches on Thursday, 100 crunches a day.  The crunches had nothing to do with my back!  I know what caused it, I’ve had back issues since high school.  My wheelchair seat was over inflated & the squats always hurt my back a bit.  So I’m going to continue doing 100 crunches a day.  I could also just twist in my seat to borrow a pen & my back would go out?  That’s what happened in grade 10?

Kim had Wednesday off, so I took it off too.  I got in the shower while she went out to get coffees & cinnamon buns.  We sat on the balcony before it got too warm.  I can’t get out there in my wheelchair.  Kim has to help me, or I can crawl out if needed.  Came inside watched a bit of TV.  Kim went for a roller blade.  She showered, we watched a little more TV, and then we went to see “Wonder Woman” in the comfy recliners at the Southland Mall.  I don’t know where it came from but we had a movie pass that we used today!

I spent 1 day a week, for almost exactly a year being in the pool during my physiotherapy.  I can’t swim anymore.  I was lowered into the pool by what’s called a “Hoyer” lift.  It’s basically a crane for people who can’t walk.  Once I was in the pool there’s a rail all the way around the pool for me to hold on to.  I was able to walk & do some different physio exercises, all while holding on to the rail.  The pool is only 5 feet deep & it’s heated.  It’s quite a bit like a warm bath.  I would walk to each side of the pool holding the railing.  I’d float on my back with weights on my feet & I was to kick my feet during that time.  One leg is stronger than the other, I’d kick my feet & go in circles.  My therapist had me try a different walker in the pool as well, that didn’t work out to well.

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today.

 

Remember “covfefe = coffee in Russian”

 

Sad that Ed Sheeran’s tune fits with Disturbed vocals

 

If this is recorded I hope it’s different than this performance!

 

Ozzy Osbourne & Nine Inch Nails to headline festival!

Wanna hear/see a clip of every “Muse” song on bass?  Looks impressive!

 

The first thing I thought when I heard Foo Fighters single “Run” was “Oh my, the riff really reminds me of Pearl Jam’s tune ‘Spin the Black Circle”

 

Another tribute to Chris Cornell.  This time a song by “Audioslave” shared by www.loudwire.com

 

20 songs produced by Kanye West, that I’ve never heard?  Rap isn’t my thing.  His birthday was Thursday!

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/pictures/20-songs-you-didnt-know-kanye-west-produced-20160411

 

The songs “Madness” & “Dig Down” by Muse are done with an electric bass I have never seen anyone else use.

 

Cool!  Another great tune from the new “Royal Blood” album.  This & Big Wreck were/are my most anticipated album of 2017, until I found out Foo Fighters’ may have a release this year.  Royal Blood is not a metal band, if you’re worried about that.  The singer plays a distorted electric bass & the other member of the group plays drums.  That’s all, just the 2 of them!

Sorry, a little late today did my exercise, then had breakfast & flipped on CNN.  It was difficult to peel my eyes away from the TV.  It’s like watching a bad car crash.  Looks like the world has never been so divided.

I fell asleep to “Prince” the album “Purple Rain”.  I woke up to pee & put on “Tool” the album “Lateralus”

I exercised to “Ascot Royals” the 2017 release “New Skin” only 7 songs, then I put on “Big Wreck” the new album “Grace Street”

I’ve got some “Into Eternity” the album “Dead or Dreaming” in the house today

 

Sunday February 3rd, 2008 was the day I was shoveling snow in our backyard.  I sat down on our steps while I experienced the most painful headache of my life.  It didn’t last long & it was at the base of my skull in the back.  Kim saw me through the kitchen window & told me to come inside.  My headache probably lasted 3 minutes & then I was fine.  I slept fine & went to work on Monday, after a week off with a bad stomach flu.

I was fine on Monday the entire day.  I didn’t even think anything of my painful/short headache.

Tuesday, February 5th 2008, again all was fine.  Kim & I were carpooling to work.  We had bought a used Pontiac Grand Am, which looked new.  We bought it roughly a year prior.  It was more used as a replacement for my Ford Tempo, which had seen better days!  I dropped of Kim & went to work.  I think it was still in the morning.  I was about to put on the printing plates for a job.  Two of my co-workers came over & told me I looked very pale.  I felt fine & carried on as usual.  Then it all happened.

I sat down on the cat-walk of my press, then I laid down on it, none of this is normal.  I called for my co-worker and said “Call 911”.  I was almost out.  The paramedics came ASAP.  Kim had been called at the same time.  She went to leave & realized I had the car.  Her boss drove her over.  I was put on a stretcher & was taken into the ambulance.  The last thing I remember was Kim getting into the ambulance & me saying “It’ll be alright sweetie”.  Apparently I was alert & answering many questions.  I don’t remember a thing though.  I was in a coma for 4 or 5 weeks with a 5-15% chance of coming out of a coma.  I slept for a year only waking up for painkillers.  On December 31st 2008 I was declared cancer free.  I really did nothing, my body took over while I pretty much slept for a year & I’m sure there was a good chunk of good luck involved.

I was discharged from my therapies at the Wascana Rehabilitation Center on Thursday July 26th 2012!  I’m told the doctors expected the cancer too comeback at the 5 year mark, that never happened luckily!

Some people say I should celebrate the days in February.  I think those are days to forget.  I’d rather celebrate July 26th & every New Year.  I don’t know if that’s right, the days in February don’t seem as though they need to be remembered?

I fell asleep to “Halestorm” their 3 Eps of cover songs 6 songs on each EP.

Don’t feel as though you have to click on every link.

Being at home while doing nothing but stretching, being limited as to what you can do with a pinched nerve is OK for about a few days or a week, but 2 months is WAY too long.  I’m bored though, I would like to do something productive & when I try to do something I go “Rrrrrrrrrright, that’s why I can’t do this!”  I don’t remember what it was like out of my rehabilitation center, but I don’t think it was this awkward?  I’ve been sitting around doing just about nothing for around 2 months other than very light exercise & stretching.  We’ve got my referral to a physio therapist, were just waiting for them to call when they have an opening.  I’m OK until I stand, then after about 5 seconds of standing everything tightens up.  My foot starts to tingle, the back of my knee gets sore, my calf gets very sore, & my butt cheek gets incredibly sore.

The good thing that has happened is that I’m pretty sure I survived the holidays without packing on the pounds!  More & more of my shirts are fitting me!

It’s Jonathan Davis’ 48th birthday today.  The singer from Korn.  I can’t tell you much about Korn I was never really into them.  They were HUGE in the late ‘90s & early 2000s though.

“Dust” by Tremonti was the 3rd studio album.  Many people call it the best of the 3 albums.  I’d have to disagree with the “All I Was” or “Cauterize” albums were my personal favourites.  Here is a song from each album in order of release beginning with the album “All I Was”

All n’ all it’s subjective.  I’m not the norm in this case.

 

25 most anticipated TV shows of 2017.  Because I don’t watch enough TV?  Rrrrrright!

That was easy only one I’d like to see is the TV series of “Fargo”.  We don’t get the app for Hulu in Regina, HBO is expensive ($20/month) & we’ve never checked for the FX channel?

 

On March 10th Sub Pop, the Seattle based music label, will release the remixed and expanded reissue of Soundgarden’s Ultramega OK.

It’s available for preorder on iTunes, but I think I’m good this is for you if you like.  I don’t really listen to their 2nd album much, “Louder Than Love”

I figure it’s close to the holidays, so 1-3 more blogs & my list of albums of the year should do it for 2016.  Yes, I already know what my New Year’s resolution is & I don’t make resolutions often.  I plan to add cardio to my exercise list.  Recumbent exercise bike or walking with my walker every Saturday morning.  I’ll need help & Kim has agreed to go with me.  We can walk in the parkade &  I’ll need help on & off the exercise bike.  Of course I’ll be doing that here.  No point in me spending money on a gym membership when I can do that here!

This pinched nerve thing can go away anytime.  It felt really as though it was “on the mend” during the week then on Saturday evening watching a movie with Kim, I had to ask her if she could move to the other couch so that I could lay down on my side.  At the moment it’s nearing 7:00 am on Sunday, December 11, 2016.  I’ve listen to 2.5 albums on my iPod while trying to get comfortable in bed, got up, shaved, had breakfast, poured a coffee, & now I’m here.  Waking up because of pain that early, not cool.

Tuesday evening, saw my chiropractor today & he’s confused as to why it hasn’t healed?  Another message therapy & another chiropractor appointment if needed.  4 weeks down the toilet exercise wise.

 

And all of the disbelievers will rant about how this is such a waste of time.

Canada tends to get the typical “Canadian” tour from most groups.  Montreal, Toronto, & Vancouver.  All are minimum a 2 or 3 day drive from Saskatchewan.  As much as I love live music, there’s no way I could justify sitting in a vehicle that long for a concert, & flying is too expensive!

I think I should call or email TLC. Kim and Sherry both have a weird obsession. Sherry has issues with putting googly eyes on EVERYTHING. Kim constantly wants to look in my ear. “If you need a flashlight, you’re going too deep & you’ll hit my brain with a Q-Tip.”

I buy a TON of movies & yes I’ll watch them multiple times if Kim isn’t a fan of them. Then I watch 1 or 2 throughout the work week. If I have the first one & really like it, of course I’ll get the second one! What blu-rays have I purchased this year? Only a couple so far, Star Wars VII : The Force Awakens, & Deadpool. What do I plan on buying? Batman vs. Superman, Captain America : The Civil War, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 (yes, it was me that liked the first one), Finding Dory, & whatever else I’ve forgotten or has yet to be mentioned.

I buy TV series as well but ordered from www.amazon.ca. They’re cheaper on DVD & there are multiple discs in a series. Save some money that way. I’d like to get ‘Modern Family’ or a subscription to www.shomi.com, the series is on there. All we have for a streaming service is Netflix.

Basically I just like to be entertained.

I was wondering when someone from Halestorm would do this.

I was going to leave this until Monday, but I’d likely forget it. I beat cancer, my body did, & Kim told my parents “He’s not going to die”. I did nothing but sleep 23 hours a day for the majority of 2008. So I beat cancer, does that make me a hero, an idiot, a jerk, a $%^*^%$@!&? Not to me, I’m me! Don’t be like me, “Be Yourself”. Call me whatever you want. I did the least amount required to live. Kim, family & a TON of friends helped me beat cancer. Remember I’m none of those things listed above, I beat cancer, but I had to get cancer first in order to beat it! I never expect/want anyone to do the same as me. I don’t have time for cancer, & you likely have less time for it. Everybody has a job, kids, a hobby or a spouse. Most people have at least one of those things! Nobody sits around & does nothing all day everyday. Even me. I workout like mad because I have to & I want to be more independent. Do I expect everyone else to do the same amount of exercising I do? Good grief no! I have a day everyday to work on me. Nobody else has that kind of time on their hands! Call me whatever you want, I’m going to stick with my birth name, Christopher!

Friday & Saturday we did nothing. Kim wasn’t feeling good on Saturday, which seems to be going around at the moment. She feels fine other than her stomach is a little uneasy. I’ve been watching the Blue Jays all weekend. Friday was a “Murphy’s Law” day. Chris Colabello tested positive for steroids an hour or two before game time so he’s suspended for 80 games with no pay. Saturday was the complete opposite, a win for the Jays 9-3 that’s the type of offense Blue Jay fans have come to expect. They won 6-3 on Sunday which puts them in 2nd place in their division behind The Baltimore Orioles who are 11W-6L while the Jays are 10W-10L, but I think the offense is coming around for the Blue Jays finally?

We didn’t leave the house all weekend, I wanted to see “Batman vs. Superman” as a matinee, but that didn’t happen Kim just wanted to stay home & do nothing, so I watched Blue Jay baseball all weekend, some Netflix, & now a rental on iTunes.

A Million Miles Away Blog on facebook.

Www.amillionmilesawayblog.com through email.

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

I was up early today. Kim had to take Brewster to the groomer’s to be there by 7:00am. I was awake when they left, I didn’t want to be, but I had to pee! Better in the toilet than in the bed.

Audioslave reunion?

A change for the better I’m sure most would say.

“Lamb of God” album review

http://loudwire.com/lamb-of-god-vii-sturm-und-drang-album-review/

What am I listening to at the moment? EVERYTHING!

These guys will be at “The Exchange” in October, only problem is that it’s a Thursday. I need my beauty sleep.

Any one of the last 2 or 1st 3 Foo Fighters albums.

This is why Kim gives me a monthly allowance for iTunes?!

Muse, Fall Out Boy, & Smashing Pumpkins were a little disappointing for me. Good albums, but not what I was expecting. I should lower my expectations, then I wouldn’t be disappointed very often! BAZINGA!!!

So I guess “Korn” are still around, & have a new album coming out soon.

Real life “Footloose” in L.A.???? Possible ban on dancing?

http://www.nme.com/news/various-artists/87372?utm_campaign=nme-august-5-05-08-2015&utm_medium=email&utm_source=newsletter

Weird, but “I Can’t Dance”, nor do I ”…drink in L.A……”

Terrible ’90s song that would be a big hit for them.

“Footloose” was my favourite movie as a kid, then it was “Top Gun”, then I saw “Return of the Jedi”/grew up somewhat. There is a “Top Gun 2” in the works. Wouldn’t it be awesome if “Goose” came back as a hologram? Little “Top Gun” mixed with “Star Wars” sometimes I amaze myself! LET’S DO A MOVIE MASH UP!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kim picked up Brewster today over her lunch break. He loves going to the groomer’s. 6:45am Kim says to him “Should we go see Sara?” Then he’s running to the door ASAP. When Kim drops him off, he knows what’s coming within 3 blocks & starts whining!

This sounds good, I pre-ordered the album on iTunes for release on October 2nd.

Climate change is happening now. 165F in Iraq as Jimmy Fallon reported yesterday.
