EXERCISE TOTAL & A BIT OF REBUTTAL

A 4 day week for me.  150 triceps pushups (I was messing with the numbers this week), 400 crunches, 400 leg lifts, 400 pushups, & 160 back flexes.  Starting Monday, December 4th I’m going to take it down a bit until January 2nd.  Triceps, leg lifts, & pushups.  Crunches & back flexes will come back into the fold on January 2nd.

I fell asleep to “Neil Young” a greatest hits album, followed by “Prince” the album “1999”

 

When I was released from therapy, I felt a sense of entitlement, “Yay I beat cancer.  Look at me!!!!”  I didn’t realize it then, but I already got the greatest thing ever, a second chance at life & make it better.  Instead I acted terribly, even before I was released & all of my therapy session were done.  Luckily everyone stuck around despite my behavior, since they know that’s nowhere close to what I was like before cancer.  THANK YOU!!!!

In one of the more recent postings I said something like “Hope for the best.  Prepare for the worst.”  You can only do that in certain circumstances.  You can’t spend your entire life looking over your shoulder looking for something bad to happen.  Unless you know something bad is coming just enjoy what you have & look forward to whatever good the future has for you!

I exercised to “Big Wreck” the newest release “Ghosts” wasn’t long enough so I put on the album “Albatross” released in 2012

There’s quite a bit of stuff on TV regarding O.J. Simpson. I watched the HBO series “The People vs. O.J. Simpson” & the 5 part mini series “O.J. : Made in America”. I think it was the most opportune time for him to allegedly murder his ex-wife & her new boyfriend. N.W.A. & the Rodney King tragedy were all over the news at that time & in the same state. Black people being black people & white people abusing or accusing any person of colour for whatever they wanted to? So of course O.J.’s team of lawyers were going to play the colour/race card. Unfortunately people forgot about the colour red?

It’s long past due that our society allows discrimination for colour, religion, sexuality, or anything else. It’s what’s on the inside that matters………….literally! Anybody that bleeds, bleeds red! The blood DNA was a slam dunk case against retired football star O.J. Simpson. There is no doubt in most peoples minds that he was guilty. His lawyers took the spotlight off of the evidence & put it on black people & all of the senseless racism going on at the time. I was a teenager at the time & even I thought he was guilty. Yes, I am caucasian. Am I racist? No! There’s always at least one bad apple in EVERY group & yes, I’m including caucasians.

Nobody’s perfect so EVERY stereotype is right but with many exceptions, enough to make EVERY stereotype wrong! I don’t care what your skin colour is, your religion or sexuality is! Are you a good person? If so, can we be friends?

It frustrates me that 50% of the time I turn on the TV during a breaking news story that there has been a mass shooting somewhere. It’s not really breaking news if it’s so frequent and continues to become even more frequent?

No I’m not saying Canada is better, we have crime, stereotypes, gangs, etc. Now it seems like every other person is pissed off at a certain group of people because the group is not the same as everyone that person associates with? That would be boring if we were all the same, but it would probably decrease the amount of unwanted violence? Just be you & who cares what anyone thinks of you outside of your circle of friends & family?! If someone chooses to kill or harm another person, the world will more than likely judge them & their actions, not you.

Good grief I’ve written 2 chapters of a novel! On to the music/pop culture portion of this thing.

Quiet weekend here. We did see “The Jungle Book” the CGI was cool & well done. I saw the Disney cartoon & the story for me way back when was “Meh……………….OK, I guess”. I’m 36 now, same story the story did nothing for me this time. It’s pretty subjective in the end.

This all comes around to a discussion I had via email with one of the guys that did sound for our band before I was sick. The topic was Garth Brooks playing in Saskatoon later on in June. I turned down the opportunity to see him, Kim & friends of ours are going. Before you jump on me, hear me out. I know of about 3 Garth Brooks songs, & I don’t know all of the lyrics to any of them. I have nothing against him, I’ve heard he puts on a fantastic “show”, I could care less about lights, special effects, pyro, etc. What do you have if you take that or the CGI out of “The Jungle Book”? A story I’m not big on & music I don’t listen to since it’s not my thing. If you want to hear it or see it, that’s cool with me. I’ll stay home save the $70/ticket to Garth Brooks, not spend 2.5 hours in the car, stay home & watch the Toronto Blue Jays lose a game or watch a movie I like.

I’ve been to well over 300 concerts. 2 of them had light shows that impressed me. U2 in Calgary & Tool in Edmonton. Even if they didn’t have light shows I would have enjoyed them. Why? I got the ticket to hear some of my favourite music played live. I didn’t go there for any other reason, nor is that why I go to any show. “What are the special effects going to be like?” “I don’t know or care? That’s not why I bought the ticket”.

I saw U2 on the “Elevation” tour in 2000 or 2001. They came on stage with the arena lights on. No darkness or special effects show started. “Cool, 4 guys just playing music!!!” for all I care the arena lights could have stayed on for the entire show.

So the CGI in “The Jungle Book” is only cool for about 5 minutes if you don’t like the story. Any special effects at a concert, unless you heard about the effects or have seen whoever live before you don’t know what the “show” will be like.

All of that being said, I’m among the minority of people who would have that opinion by far! If that’s your thing, it’s cool with me.

It’s been a weekend of me listening to the 3 albums I preordered from iTunes that showed up at 9:30 pm Thursday, well 2 of them. Then I saw that Ben Harper had released an album on April 8th and grabbed that as well. I couldn’t tell you which of the 3 are better, their all very different, & all very good! “Tremonti” – “Dust”, “Rob Zombie” – “The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser”, & “Ben Harper and The Innocent Criminals” – “Call it What it is”

I got the album “Dust” by Tremonti Thursday evening at 9:30 pm. It was number 1 in 5 or 6 European countrys already! It’s quite often I think I need to move to Europe just for the music scene over there?!? I could never live that far away from our families & friends!

So now I’m living cancer free which is awesome! Those 4 & ½ years look smaller & smaller as time progress’. Can’t remember them nor do I really want to. Now I pay far more attention to my health. I eat much better than I did before. Sure I splurge like most people about 2 or 3 times a month or on the odd occasion we go out, which isn’t very often. The rest of the time I drink a mixture of fruit & vegetables I toss in a blender & have that for breakfast usually other than once a month that we go out for brunch. Lunch is usually a chicken wrap with a bit of grated cheese & Frank’s Red Hot. Supper is a wild card, usually chicken with Quinoa & wild rice in some form with some type of vegetables or a salad from Pita Pit or something along those lines. I eat less sugar filled stuff than I did before. Even my snacks are grapes, carrots or rice/pita crackers & hummus. 2 or 3 liters of water or a glass of cranberry juice to change it up a bit. If we go out, it depends on my mood, a salad or the tastiest thing on the menu. I exercise Monday-Friday for a little over an hour & I think we’ll be walking Saturdays & Sundays in our parkade with my walker & Kim holds me to make sure I don’t fall! I wish you all could meet her, she’s beyond AWESOME!

There’s no manual for surviving, surviving stage 4 brain cancer. I was told to exercise, especially my core muscles. So I spend roughly 1 ½ hours every morning exercising. My abdominal muscles are incredible, unfortunately they’re covered by a layer of fat. My mom suggested I try doing some squats! I’ve added that into my exercises. I have many exercises I can do here at home on the floor & stairs, walking & using the exercise bike in the condo’s “gym” aka a exercise bike & a treadmill.

I hit my exercise goal today, but only did 2 types of exercise. I figured I should ease into it, instead of wrecking myself for another week on the couch. I was fine last week, I just felt guilty & bored as my exercise mat sat there & judged me “from a distance”. Why do I know that song? Right, mom likes it! Bad mommy, NO!

When did the Saskatchewan Roughriders become an overpriced professional sporting event? I’ve been going to the only professional football game in the province since my grandfather could hold me on his lap. For the 2017 season we’ll have a new stadium, my parents & I get season tickets, 1 exhibition game, 9 regular season games, & you pay for a home playoff game which carries over if there’s not one. Right now we are paying $7 extra for each game. Even if we move to a worse spot, we pay more than we do now. New stadium so of course prices would go up. If they’re going up that much they’d better win more than 3 games in 2017! I can watch them lose at home on TV. One season & there’s a 98% chance I’ll stay at home, unless it’s an incredible season or new stadium. A roughly $30/game extra.

The 4 BIG singles from each 4 “Alter Bridge” albums available now as they finish recording their 5th studio album. 4 songs in order.

So this first one was just the popular one on iTunes. The single is the next one below it.

PROMOTION? EXERCISE TOTAL FOR THE WEEK

I fell asleep & woke up to “Dream Theater” the album “The Astonishing”. I waited until shortly after 10:00pm & got it then went to bed. It’s not your typical “Dream Theater” with 9 songs averaging 10 minutes in length. Double album 34 songs in total & most songs are 4 minutes long. The longest is almost 8 minutes. There was a lot more orchestral music on it also. I’d say it’s a really good album!

I exercised to “Eve 6” all 4 albums on shuffle.

Exercise total for the week! 40 leg lifts om my back, 40 leg lifts on my hands & knees, 150 squats, 120 pushups, 1260 crunches, 580 meters walking one day no rest periods. Did I enjoy it? No, but you do what you gotta do! When we were going to the field house on a flat surface I do 800 meters with 2 rest periods. After the first 200 meters then after the following 400 meters, then I’d finish up with the last 200 meters. This doesn’t count the long side walk into & out of the building. Our parking garage has slops for the drain. It’s not a flat surface.

I go to www.youtube.com to share these links & if they’re brand new it tells me to not embed them? This musician doesn’t want me to promote their new song, video, or album? Why is it on www.youtube.com then? Police are going to arrest me because I shared a link? Either way, you’re welcome.

I was fine Monday, I’ve been tired all week since Tuesday morning. I would have liked to have just sat on my butt all week, that never happens unless I declare a break.
