Weekly exercise total; 600 pushups, 300 tricep pushups, 175 back flexes, 360 squats, 600 leg lifts, 300 crunches.

I fell asleep to “Neil Young” a greatest hits album

I exercised to “Ben Folds Five” the album “Whatever & Ever Amen”


Yes, I exercise immediately every morning.  Unfortunately cardio is not a regular part of the regular routine.  By the time Kim gets home from work, I’m exhausted & more exercise is usually the furthest thing from my mind.  I’m not blaming anyone for this.  “I need somebody” to assist me so I don’t fall & crack my head open.

The morning exercises help immensely with my walking, which is always assisted & with a walker.  “I’m not satisfied” with my status quo.  I’m not afraid to pile on more exercise, I just need to kick myself in the butt & do more.


I don’t even like talking about this, but it happened.  I don’t want to make a BIG deal about this but it is a BIG deal.  I’d love eradicate racism.  That’s won’t happen with Trump, Un, & Putin in power.  I know I’ll catch crap for this, but it needs to be said.

Abbreviating the “N” word to “Nig” does NOT make it any less offensive.  It angers, saddens, & offends me that people have to deal with this garbage & that the person who said this is a distant blood relative of mine.

I’ll be the first one to tell you that I’m not perfect.  I’ve NEVER even considered using a racial slur at anyone!  My aunt would severely over tan, we were in a restaurant & I said “WOW you look like an Indian”!  I think everyone thought I was using a racial slur regarding the Aboriginal community and told me to quiet down.  WOW were they off.  What I meant is people from India.  How is this racist?  Indian, Canadian, American, African, Australian, Mexican, English, etc.  I find East Indian racist, why do I have to specify Indian as “East” Indian?  Teach me please, should I use another word?

Metal screaming isn’t just noise & not everyone can do it, me included!



“Coheed & Cambria”.  Their new album “The Unheavenly Creatures” – October 5th release date, has some catchy tunes on it.


“Nothing but Thieves” – What did you think made me this way? 4 song EP – October 19th


“Greta Van Fleet” – Anthem of the Peaceful Army, October 19th


“The Struts” – Young & Dangerous, out October 26th on iTunes


“Into Eternity” – The Sirens, out October 26th on iTunes & more importantly www.bandcamp.com the money spent on www.bandcamp.com sends the majority of the proceeds go directly to the band members!


“Tenacious D” – Post Apocolypto, November 2nd on iTunes


“Muse” – Simulation Theory, November 9th on iTunes

No I don’t have all of these on preorder from iTunes.  I have 4/8 on preorder.  I hope to purchase a CD at a future “Into Eternity” show.  I’m holding out on “Tenacious D” since the previous album was more about vulgarity than anything else.  I’m going to wait until November for “Coheed & Cambria”.  I have a TON of music coming to me in October.


I just read a bit about another album release in October 26th, another one I’ll wait for until November.  My limit for October & November is at it’s capacity.

“Chevelle” – 12 Bloody Spies B – Sides & Rarities, October 26th full release date.

That’s it for iTunes purchases for me this year.  Gotta start with the Christmas Gifts, & probably delay more purchases on iTunes this year.

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!


Pentatonix shared it….


Pearl Jam shared it….


25 years ago on January 17th Green Day released the album “Kerplunk”, the predecessor to “Dookie”


I guess ‘Audioslave’ are reuniting for one show.



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”


The Agonist shared it……


The awkward moment when Trump attended a Black Sabbath concert



Jamiroquai are back & cool again.  I only have random songs all from their greatest hits album on iTunes which has over 50 songs I believe.



20 albums that will turn 20 years old this year.  Now I feel really old.  I was in grade 11 at the time they were released??????????????????????????????


Yes, I own these 3 & a few more………………………….on CD.


Article with Mark Tremonti (singer/guitarist for Tremonti also guitarist & co-writer for Alter Bridge)


I think I got very close to the long note at the once out of the 8 or 9 times we rehearsed it & played once?


I listened to the “Dystopia” album by “Megadeth” that was released in January of 2016.  I liked it for a while then I did like it & this time around, I’d say it’s not too bad.


Best hard rock albums of 2007
