I fell asleep to “I Mother Earth” the album “The Quicksilver Meat Dream”

Wear a shirt, listen to the band!

I exercised to “Finger Eleven” the album “Tip”


I watched “This is Life” on CNN with Lisa Ling last Sunday.  It was about people becoming addicted to technology.  They even mentioned that kids are committing suicide or throwing tantrums when their phone, tablet, computer, etc. is taken away, kids who have graduated high school or have dropped out of school.  I guess there is a rehab place for it in Silicon Valley.  One guy who was suicidal, because he played games on his cell phone so much he wouldn’t sleep, he just kept playing the game, he stopped speaking to other people completely.  He spoke to the group, including his sister & parents about just getting a flip phone.

What am I trying to explain here is that the Facebook message, email, tweet, etc. will be there, even if you don’t reply instantly.  Nobody talks to anyone any more.  I’ll text you, email you, Facebook you, etc. that’s all I hear.  You can call me, Facebook me, or email me to get together later on.  Then we can talk face to face.

I’m not perfect by any stretch of the imagination.  I refuse to get a smart phone.  I don’t want to hear an alert from my phone all of the time.  My wife has a cell phone & it drives me nuts when she sets it on the couch & I feel it vibrate or hear it make a sound.  If I really need a phone, I’ll get a flip phone & people can call me.

Companies like google, yahoo, email sites, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. are trying to push out as much crap as possible to keep you engaged with your phone as long as possible so they can make more money.

You know what’s coming next?  Robots, that are stronger than us.  Jim Jefferies even had a segment about them.  They’re real, & I want no part of it!


Kids on average get a cell phone between the ages of 6-13.  Why do kids need/want a cell phone at that age?  I’m 38 with nothing more than a desktop computer aka I don’t freak out without a cell phone in my pocket.  It is so nice to not worry about that.  What is on my computer desk?  Pens & paper, to write down new phone numbers & new passwords.

Kids are said to be more depressed these days because of less human interaction & they’re not the C.E.O. a successful business after being there for 8 months.  Chill out, the Earth doesn’t orbit around anyone, just the sun.

I do the same with this blog & assume everyone knows how I’m doing?  Well not everyone is reading this.  If they’re in a different province or country, I’ll email them or Facebook them, however they prefer to be reached.  I don’t send enough messages as I should though.


This is one of the reasons Dave Grohl is so cool!


Are Pentatonix going to release a Christmas album every year?  They’re on pace for it.


This is why I’m against streaming music & digital downloads.  Apple needs to get rid of their streaming music site, let the artists set the price between $9.99 to 14.99 per download.  The option?  Streaming sites need to pay the artist more!  I’ve got 600 CDs behind me in boxes.  The average cost of a CD was around $20- $25.  Artists could put the price at $18.99 & it would still be cheap for people like me.  I’m not an Avenged Sevenfold fan but this was the article that I saw.  99.9% of their income comes from touring.  I haven’t seen every band I like live, so they’re missing out on money from me in a way, I guess?

Would you want to spend $1000s of dollars on recording the music, paying a producer, a sound engineer, etc.?  Only to give it away on a fraction of a penny?  I’d make music for myself & tour every 5 years while working at another job 5 days a week.


Why would ‘System of a Down’ even consider getting a therapist like ‘Metallica’?  Remember after ‘Metallica’ got a therapist they gave us the album ‘St. Anger’.  An album that sounds terrible with 0 solos.  The solo thing I can get past, the production & song writing on that album leaves a LOT to be desired.


I wonder who put gasoline on the fire of the lies, deception, & hatred?



I only own the album “Born in the USA”.  This is an album I heard as a kid, my dad was really into it.  He has the regular vinyl edition & bought a special edition that’s still sealed in the purchased packaging.  I bought this album on iTunes & added a few extra songs from his greatest hits album.

I saw this video ^^ while I was watching “FRIENDS” as a teenager & asked “Is that Monica from friends?”  Reply from my parents “Yes, it is” I was surprised.

These are all on the album.  The following is one of the songs I added.

Thursday evening was quite tame, 3 pints of Rebellion’s Flanders Red beer, TV shows & then to bed.  Friday was an extremely lazy day.  Laundry, I got supper & a blizzard at Dairy Queen.  Kim took me because I whined & begged.  We rented “Central Intelligence” good for a chuckle.

Saturday, Kim went grocery shopping & to the art show in the morning.  We went to my parents in the afternoon for supper later on.  My parent’s puppy, Goose, is currently 20-24oz.  A really fat hamster.  We came home just before 9:00 pm & the elevator wasn’t working.  Kim knocked on someone’s door.  He already knew & had called for the repair.  By 9:30 pm all was well & we were home.  Kim had a better idea than I did.  I figured I could do that many stairs, but we had Brewster with us which would make it tricky, Kim knocked on the door of one of the condo board members.

My mother & my cousin were hear for coffee earlier.  My cousin should be boarding her plane to go home shortly.  Iran the dishwasher, emptied it, made a juice for the week, & had a bite of canned peaches for lunch.  The rest of the day looks like I’ll be on the couch.

“THE BOY WHO DIED WOLF out November 18th.”  Yes, this is the last of my 2 preorders/purchases this year.  The other one is an EP from Lamb of God on the same day.

Taylor Hawkins, Foo Fighters’ drummer, released an EP on November 11th.  I didn’t purchase it yet, just listening to it on Apple Music for the time being.


I did have the “In Flames” album “Battles” on preorder.  I got it Thursday night.

Singer, Jesse Hughes of “Eagles of Death Metal”, wasn’t allowed in the reopening of the Bataclan in Paris?  Nah, he was allowed in.  Interesting article.  Still 6 security guards call in sick on the day of the shooting seems to be an odd coincidence, unless the venue employs 500 people.

I did it!  4 day week in Canada though 6000 crunches, 480 squats, 400 pushups, & 400 leg lifts!

7500 crunches, 600 squats, 500 leg lifts, & 500 pushups in a 5 day week.

Every day of the week starts with 60 squats, a 3 minute rest, 60 more squats, 50 leg lifts on my back, 1500 crunches.  Then 50 more leg lifts on my hands & knees, then 100 pushups.

I expected I’d have to gradually build up to the numbers?  I didn’t though I just took it very slow the first 2 days.  In 2008 & 2009 I didn’t really understand what was going on.  I blacked immediately after Kim got into the back of the Ambulance that a co-worker called for me.  The last thing I remember is telling Kim “It’ll be OK sweetie”.  Cancer was constantly “on my mind” when I realized what had happened until roughly the middle of 2013.  Now the further away from it I get it becomes more of a “What the heck was that?”  My advice, don’t get cancer!  Cancer put a strain on most relationships friends, family, Kim, & random people who just stare at the wacko with an iPatch in the wheelchair.  I immediately threw gas on the fire & reacted very poorly to say the least.  Why?  I don’t know.  At the end of the day I was embarrassed & thought it was all my fault, & wanted to bring everyone down to what I thought was my level.  It wasn’t my level.  I don’t like to air my “dirty laundry”, Kim took the brunt of my anger & depression.  I love Kim & I know that’s not OK under any circumstance.  If anyone’s a hero in this story, it’s Kim.  I’m very lucky I met her & that she’s still a part of my life, along with the rest of my family & friends.

I still feel very self-conscious about my iPatch.  Everyone has seen some one in a wheelchair before, but an iPatch isn’t a common thing.  As self-conscious as I feel in public I tend to think to myself “WHAT?  REALLY?  Is this beautiful face offending you?  If it is avert your eyes!”


The election is still on my mind, but “in the end” I can’t change the outcome.  We’ve all had a day to question, worry, live in denial, & freak out.  Today is a new day.  If you’re American & don’t like the outcome find a peaceful way to make a difference.  If you’re happy with the outcome or from another country, your hands are tied, might as well get over it.

I don’t vote for anything in Canada.  There has never been any type of election here that horrendously changed the game.  Every election in Canada, the candidates (to me) have been very similar.  I don’t want to waste my time figuring out who the lesser evil is.  For me, the US election was evil, but very cut & dry.  The outcome I cannot change.  My advice to those that aren’t happy, YOU make a change if you can, sitting around & complaining, calling people names, & dragging Trump’s name through the mud will not solve/change anything.  Stay level headed & make yourself happy, don’t hurt anyone in any way.  I want to punch a hole in the wall.  I refuse to, because it does nothing beneficial for me or anyone else!  Relax & do something positive.

I spent most of Sunday on the couch watching “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens” for probably the 134th time.  I’ll admit it, I do a little more than dabbling in science fiction.  Is it a problem if I know some of the dialogue already?  I was still a little tender getting off the couch Sunday, & very tender today.  After I finished my exercises today, I decided the rest of this week will be a lot of stretching & very light exercising.

NO, I DO NOT FOLLOW CANADIAN POLITICS AT ALL! As a person with a physical disability, what the Republican Presidential nominee did by mocking people with disabilities does not anger me or the fact that I am physically disabled. I don’t really think of myself as disabled & I’m sure that many others who are mentally or physically disabled don’t think of it either. What that disrespectful mocking did was exactly what this election is about. He separated people more instead of bringing people together. He made it clear, there’s him, 400 feet of crap, upper class, middle class, lower class, 400 feet of crap & everyone else. My legs work, just not for a long period of time. I’ll take a stand for those who can’t, literally & figuratively. It’s disrespectful & does not warrant any gain for ANYONE! I feel bad for Americans, in that some of them support Donald Trump. Remember, he mocked EVERYONE that has a disability! That includes any member of the military who has fought for the country & that anyone can vote in an election.

A broken bone or whatever will heal. A vote for Hillary will never be taken away! I may be Canadian but #ImWithHer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yay, another really good A Capella group. 7th Avenue!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If there is ever a show near us with Pentatonix or 7th Avenue in the lineup, I’d pee a bit & buy a ticket ASAP! I’d try to get my priorities straight but I don’t think my bladder could wait?

This is great! I have another solution for this problem. If you’re a civilian & not hunting, why do you need a gun? If you pull a gun out while the police are present, what do you think they’ll do? If you don’t carry a gun, the police have no reason to protect themselves with a gun? Imagine how simple that would be?

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!

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer. for email

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.

Alter Bridge has now started recording guitar tracks for their 5th studio album, photo & caption on Facebook! YAY!

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.

Sorry, I wasn’t feeling great today. I think I may have the flu? I wrote this in the morning, tomorrow might be sketchy, I’ll see how I’m feeling.

I’ve never heard of a “baseball hangover”? I was watching a sports talk show yesterday, Prime Time Sports with Bob McCown, & he’s talking about a baseball hangover since the Toronto Blue Jays are done, eliminated from the playoffs. I never assumed they’d win the World Series, but the regular season & the post season really caught Canadians attention. Baseball in Canada became interesting, for anyone that was willing to watch it! I don’t have a “hangover” from a lack of Blue Jays baseball. Opening day for the regular season is in April, for me it’s like waiting for Christmas, just a shorter waiting period. While I’m waiting, I have an interesting off season to watch. Who’s coming back, will David Price sign, is the new President of Roger’s Sports going to keep/sign the general manager back, who else is coming & going, etc.? Sure I’d love to be watching a game 7 on Saturday night or game 1 of the World Series involving the Blue Jays. It didn’t happen so it’s time for the fans to focus on the NOW, not last week, it’s over & can’t be changed. Spring training isn’t that far away!

I’m not really a fan of “Avenged Sevenfold”. To close to Metallica territory for me. LANGUAGE!!!

Kim threw out her back yesterday? She took some Tylenol when she came home yesterday. She’s home today since she can’t really move. She’s in bed at the moment.

Yes, I grabbed the new “Lamb of God” album last night to listen to while going to sleep. I fell asleep too fast only heard half of the album. I’ll let you know that the firs 5 songs are REALLY good for fans of “As the Palaces Burn”, “Ashes of the Wake”, & “Sacrament”, as for the rest of the album I’ll tell you more next week.

The music I listen to can be very offensive to others, & I get that. That’s why I don’t force my music to be played here on the stereo when Kim is home unless it’s something we both like or if it’s “….my birthday…..”

Rap music is my Kryptonite If it’s not “Beastie Boys” I’m out! Yes I like Bicardi rum!

For me most country music & rap music aren’t for me, slightly offensive. I don’t go to football games for the music. I say just play country music & 75% of the crowd will love it. Yes, more country music, I can tolerate it, it won’t make my ears bleed……………..much.

I forgot, I fell on Thursday doing my yoga. Not the first time & likely not the last.

Can we talk about wussy baseball players for a second? Good, thank you! There was a day game in Oakland yesterday. Blue Jays SS (Short Stop) had a ball thrown from the outfield. It bounced twice. Once on the ground, & once on the base runners back into Jose Reyes’ teeth, he left the game. Why?How many times have I blocked a ground ball with my chest, have a ball hit my head while at bat with a batting helmet on, etc. Just suck it up & maybe EARN the multi million dollar pay check to play a game? I’ve taken a baseball to the mouth before, no blood, stay in the game. I’ve left a game twice with an injury. Stretched tendons in my knee after colliding with a 1B player, & running flat out into foul ground to catch a pop up then two steps later running into a chain link fence, bending the top about a foot while getting a bruise, winded, & possibly some cracked ribs? If you’re being paid millions of dollars to play a game, suck it up & get on the playing surface Especially baseball, a baseball won’t hurt you unless you let it! Play the ball, don’t let the ball play you. I’m pretty sure one of my coaches said that.

Watch the results from the audience after the debate , 32% pro, 30% against & 38% undecided before the debate, between scientists. After the debate 60% pro, 31% against, 9% undecided. I don’t vote, so I can’t complain, until you’re growing your food in your garden the way you want, what gives you the right to complain? It’s hard to argue with 1000s of scientific studies that result in favour of using GMOs. I guess the scientists keep getting it wrong?

I really would like this to be conversation between myself & the readers. I’m telling you my story of the music I like, now you tell me what you’re into? I’m not about to judge anyone on their listening choices, that would be weird coming from a music fan. Please, let’s make this interactive, in a good way? If I haven’t checked it out or mentioned it on here, teach me please?

I’m going to watch “Blue Jays in 0:30 minutes”. I MUCH prefer watching a 3 hour pitching dual where the score is 1 or 2-0. For me it has to be really close & low scoring or a total blow-out for one team! They lost……………………..again.

iTunes Match, “….thanks, that was fun….” now were leaving you in the dust like MANY others are! Home Sharing for us now!

Halestorm article/interview

“Slash can say whatever he wants about Axl Rose”. Sure he was in arguably one of the biggest bands around at the time.

If you like Nickleback there’s a VERY GOOD chance you’ll enjoy “Theory of a Deadman”, if you haven’t heard them.

Worst to first Tool albums. My favourite song without a pile of language below

Watch these soon they’ll likely be taken off of youtube very soon?

Kurt Cobain ‘Montage of Heck’ & “Soaked in Bleach’ both on youtube, but ‘Montage of Heck’ will not let me embed the link to share it.

Pentatonix documentary ‘On My Way Home’ on

I’m not sharing those links since they could be taken down from youtube soon? I watched ‘Montage of Heck’ yesterday & just found it weird.

Chevy Chase appearance on Jimmy Fallon

U2 enlist the help of The Roots & Jimmy Fallon at Madison Square Gardens

“Glorious Sons” not a metal group or heavy in anyway, just a really good rock band I have never listened to, I’ve heard the name in passing though. They have stuff on iTunes. Show on October 15th. Tickets on sale tomorrow July 24th. For those in Regina.

Miranda Lambert duet days after announcing divorce from Blake Shelton

Halestorm with Corey Taylor (Slipknot/Stone Sour) preforming “Hunger Strike” live! I REALLY like this song

Remember “Lamb of God” fans it coming tomorrow or late tonight, depending on where you live?

Tremonti & Trivium in Toronto only as far as a Canadian tour date goes?! You know since we all live in Ontario or B.C…………………………….NOT!!!!!

Avenged Sevenfold part ways with drummer. I have 6? of their albums & never really bother to listen to them.

If “Sum-41” can do something in the style of the “Screaming Bloody Murder” album, I’m all for Brownsound’s come back!!!

Not much going on in the music side of things today. Our 12.5lbs dog is driving me crazy today. It’s been cloudy all day, it’s raining & he heard thunder earlier. In other words he’s been panting & shaking like a leaf for most of the day. Kim deals with him throughout the night, then I deal with him all day. He’s been this way for quite a few weeks now? I think he’s getting old fast. He mostly lays at the door, scratching it & whining.

We had a noise complaint about him early on last year when we both went out one day & forgot to leave the TV on for Brewster. Since then we haven’t left him alone. We take him to my parents house, Mitch & Rachel’s place, or Sherry & James’ house. We pretty much have to get a sitter for our dog? He seems to be getting worse with age, he wasn’t like this 3 weeks ago? He’s on anxiety pills now, they aren’t helping & he’s been on them long enough to have them in his system.

Songs I like. “Megadeth”
