I fell asleep to “Matthew Good Band” the album “Beautiful Midnight”

I exercised to “Econoline Crush” the album “The Devil You Know”

 

Weekly exercise total; 800 pushups, 560 leg lifts, 400 crunches, 300 squats, 240 tricep pushups, & 190 back flexes.  All of that in a 4 day week.

Next week will be a normal 5 day week.  Regular Sunday, Wednesday, & Friday post.

 

Tuesday.  Some days my stupidity is at 11/10.  “Hey, I just had 4 days off!  Let’s do all of the exercise at the goal limit” idiot.  I’m very tired this Tuesday morning after everything.

More of my T-Shirts are fitting with all of this exercise during the week.  I don’t know why, but I’ve felt tired all week.  Before my exercise & after my exercise.  Even did something different one day as a plumber was checking the en suite showers on the 2nd & 3rd floors.  I had breakfast & tended to the dishwasher first & then did my exercise.  They came to our suite first I believe.  I just didn’t want to be on the floor exercising when they came.

All of this exercise & eating healthy has made a difference but you can’t really see a difference in my muscles.  I’ve lost weight but even Kim says there’s very little definition shows in my muscles.  I’d have to agree with that.

It seems the older I get, the more bumps, cuts, & scabs I get.  “When did I do that?”  The answer never shows up & I just carry on as usual.

 

SIMON & GARFUNKEL

Stop laughing.  Summer of 1997 I bought a 3 disc box set of theirs.  We were living at my Grandparents place while dad & friends were rebuilding everything in our basement at home.

I bought the box set & listened to it constantly at a low volume in “my” temporary room as I fell asleep.  I can’t remember who mentioned them to me?  Might have been our choir conductor?  This was my last year of baseball.  I was playing on 2 teams & blew out my arm, making multiple throws from 3B to 1B (roughly 127 feet).

The Chamber Choir went to Newfoundland that summer for the exact same dates that my city league team was scheduled to play a tournament in Montana.  I already knew about the Newfoundland trip & told my coach at the first practice about the Newfoundland trip when he told us about the tournament.  He instantly got mad & had a temper tantrum.  “CANCEL IT NOW” he yelled at me.  I told him I couldn’t & that I had been fundraising & wouldn’t back out of this commitment I already had.  The baseball season went on.  I’d check the lineup & every day it was me, playing third base, & batting 9th, I was a terrible hitter.  The team went to Montana & I went to Newfoundland.  The first game back from the tournament I was benched!  The nastiest player on the team took over third base.  So I quit right there after the game & a HUGE argument with my head coach.  We didn’t see eye to eye on his decision to bench me or my decision to go with the choir.  I went back to my Grandparents house & relaxed to “Simon & Garfunkel”…..

Anybody watching “Riverdale”?  Archie comic characters, made into a murder mystery live action TV show.  Kim & I are hooked on this show.  Betty’s last name is Cooper, guess what her mother’s first name is?  Alice!  I just laugh & go “Look it’s Alice Cooper Hahahahahahahaha!”

It’s a Netflix original, but it’s on the CW channel before it’s available on Netflix.

Look at that!  “Theory of a Deadman” can do something completely different than “Nickelback”, & do it well.  A cover of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game”.  If he’s not making music Chris Isaak should make a comeback.  Not the comeback below though.

In Flames cover of “Wicked Game”

Not this “Comeback”

 

Get off of your high horse!  Some stuff on www.youtube.com should be censored & it is.  It’s SO important that a shooting at their office is needed?  REALLY?

Terrible video too.  More than a little sexist…………….BY FAR.

Clean version.  Other version contained a parade of naked women.

 

Robert Plant on Greta Van Fleet

 

I was doing my exercise yesterday to Billy Joel.  Took me back to last year or the year before 3 or 4 of us driving to Saskatoon to see “Trivium” singing Billy Joel on the way there!  It also reminded me of this from earlier this week…

 

Could anyone shed some light on TONS of people having an issue with “Justice League”?  I watched it for the 2nd time this week & I still like it.  Maybe the next movie (Aquaman from what I hear) will be written & directed by Marvel studios?  Is it that bad, or are people just looking for something to complain about”?  This ruined the movie for them?  I’ve never seen it!

 

Tremonti “A Dying Machine” is out for preorder today & you get this song from it.  Full album will be released June 8th.

I fell asleep to “Stitched Up Heart” the album “Never Alone”

I exercised to “Candlebox” the album “Love Stories & Other Musings”

 

FRIDAY DECEMBER 22 WILL BE THE FINAL BLOG FOR THE YEAR!!!!!!!

 

OK, I get to sit here & fill you in on stuff I like, movies, TV shows, & music.  That’s great & all.  I do encourage you to check out stuff I recommend.  I also encourage you to find your own things & share it as a comment.  I’m aware that not everyone will like the same things, don’t be shy, “tell us about it”, and make us aware of something the rest of us are missing out on!  I would love for this to be much more interactive!  You don’t need to have survived brain cancer to have an opinion about something.

I hate exercising as much as the next person, until about 5 – 10 minutes after I’m done with it.  I figure “Ah, get it over with ASAP”.

I look up reviews on movies, music, & TV shows as much or more than the next person does or would like to.  “In the end” it’s quite subjective, check it out & see if it’s to your liking.

I always encourage you to make up YOUR OWN mind about everything!  Here’s an example, so many people love the Marvel Comic book movies.  Guess what?  I prefer the DC movies more than the Marvel movies.  Some people don’t like comic book movies.  It’s AOK with me.  Some people prefer to not watch movies or TV.  I’m OK with that too!  I don’t understand it, but I acknowledge that.

That’s the reason my music reviews are more like “Hey check this out.  See if you like it.”  Friday is my top 10 albums of the year & some stuff I haven’t gotten a chance to purchase yet.  That’s the only time I’ll rate an album.

 

 

We finished season/part 4 of “The Ranch” on Sunday.  Yes, we were binge watching it.  10 episodes each a ½ hour long.  Released on Friday.

I was going to purchase the “Depeche Mode” Greatest Hits album among other Greatest Hits albums.  I found out I’m not a big fan of the artist or groups, just a song here & there.  “In Flames” just released a 4 song EP of cover songs.  That’s what got me on this 1980, 1990, & early 2000s train.  Here are the 3 Depeche Mode songs I plan on purchasing 2 of the 3 songs have been covered.

 

Here are the 2 performances by Foo Fighters on SNL this past weekend.

I fell asleep to “Rush” the album “Counterparts”

 

I exercised to “Stone Temple Pilots” the album “Core”

 

I ended up spending most of Sunday on the computer again.  If there are any double files, I give up.

I miss my hobbies.  I loved playing & singing in a rock band, something I always wanted to do after I graduated high school.  I was always a singer by default, since I could carry a tune & I didn’t own a guitar until I was 21.  Practicing my guitar now is not fun for me.  My brain knows what to do, but my left (fret board hand) refuses to listen to me.  So after maybe 10 minutes, I get more than frustrated.  Since there’s no baseball on at the moment, I should really hunker down & get 1 of my guitars & really work on it.

As with most things, I never really practiced guitar or singing.  In my head I’d say “Ah, good enough”.  I did get a bit better with each rehearsal or show.  I never really sat down & focused on singing or playing.  I guess there were a couple times I’d check out a song I liked, learn the meat & potatoes of it in 30 minutes & leave it at that.  I learned these songs pretty well though….

The guitar part sounds much more difficult than it sounds.

This along with the entire 2nd album by Foo Fighters & some of their 1st, 3rd, & 4th album.  I guess their 5th album too.  Then they were far too difficult to play & sing at the same time.  I also learned a few other songs on my own…….

I was good enough to fill in for Chris Messer’s band “Left Foot Louie” who played polkas, country, & rock as the older crowd were calling it a night.  When Chis asked me to fill in for Tyler, I had one issue.  “OK but, you have to do the leads & difficult stuff.  I can’t do that stuff.”

I practiced once with Tyler Wanner, Corey McDonald & David Kliman.  I was impressed that Tyler was impressed that I could play “Slither” by Velvet Revolver & sing it also.  How could I not be impressed?  He listened to the solo twice & knew it!  BLEW MY MIND!

Check out this documentary about hired musicians who play whatever is needed on an album or tour with big name musicians like Billy Joel, Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie, etc.  It’s called “Hired Guns” on Netflix.

 

I am a U2 fan.  I’m still deliberating if I should purchase their new album?  However I’m leaning further to saying yes to the dress/album.  Oh, how Kim loves her TLC.  Yet, I’ve learned nothing.

I never really anticipated a new “System of a Down” album

 

Lead singer, Josh Homme, of Queens of the Stone Age, kicked & injured a photographer during a recent show.

http://loudwire.com/josh-homme-kicks-photographer-face-queens-of-the-stone-age-show/

 

Will this have any effect on my issue with iTunes at the moment?

Why do the Toronto Blue Jays have to wait for somebody else to make the first move?  The home run leader from last year just got traded to the N.Y. Yankees, & they’re in the same division.  The Yankees just added a 59 home run hitter to their lineup, move!  If nothing happens, say “Goodbye” to most of your ticket buyers, then sell the team that nobody will want.  They have needs not wants.

http://www.sportsnet.ca/baseball/mlb/blue-jays-dont-feel-pressured-rush-deal-weak-starting-market/

If the Blue Jays can dump Troy Tulowitzki at short stop & get Machado to join the team at short stop, I’m all in.  I wouldn’t let Josh Donaldson go if possible, he’s a late bloomer, & a good one!

I fell asleep to “Linkin Park” their first album “Hybrid Theory”

I exercised to “The Barstool Prophets” from the album “Crank”

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

As much as I’d like to start of full on, I can’t.  I’m not supposed to do the full amount I was doing before anyways, so the doctors tell.  So I’ll level things out at a slightly smaller number.  It will be very slow going until I get a cortisone shot anyways.  I like proving the doctors wrong, but better safe than sorry since I’ve run out of tax claims for the year for chiropractor appointments!  I can’t wait to have a doctor lean on a 6” needle with all they’ve got into my spine, YAY!

I wish “Stone Sour” would just stop posting a photo of whichever member recording in the studio.  We know they’re done and the album release is in June.  Stone Sour fans know and we’re just waiting now.

Songs I just wanted to play, & a few more when I filled in for a friend.

It’s odd that my chiropractor noticed I was wearing pants instead of my year round shorts attire.  Mark your calendars’ it was yesterday.  January 11th.  I wore pants for the first time this year, 2017.  I think I wore pants 4 times last year?

“But it’s so cold out, how do you do that, are you nutz?”  Being a little bit off helps but think of how long I’m actually outside.  We have underground parking, so I’m not outside.  We also have rock star…………….mmmm…………handicap parking very close to the building we’re going to.  I’m outside for 2 or 3 minutes in total to & from where ever we we’re.

Our wedding was in May 2005.  If I could change one thing about our wedding, it would be the normal formal attire.  “Are you comfortable?  Underwear & a T-Shirt?  Come on in!”  As long as the bits & pieces are covered, who cares?

Anyways, I saw my chiropractor yesterday & this pinched nerve has been preventing me from doing anything for roughly 2 months now.  I’ll be getting a referral to a physio therapist on Monday.  If it continues to bother me, after I don’t know how long I’ll be given a cortisone shot, which would be my 8th since 2008.  Not fun but they work!  “Let me shove this 8” needle in you.”  Kim couldn’t even watch & she’s not worried around needles.  The needle didn’t really hurt, the doctor put so much pressure on the needle into my spine.  I’ve had back issues since high school.

My mother has seen more than her fair share of people having cancer, especially since I was diagnosed in 2008.  Her mother died of breast cancer in December of 1999.  Since my diagnosis she’s seen many people not survive.  Our family friend who she met at work, our friend’s mother, my grandfather, my aunt, and another friend she met at work, & unfortunately her cousin has recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer recently as well.  I survived, I’m fine wheelchair & an eye patch, but I’m here!  I don’t think she needs anymore deaths to witness?  That list of people is more than enough!

People worry about me, too much sometimes.  When I eat, I HOOVER my food.  Sometimes I choke.  I had a rough day of chocking on food, & I was with my family.  I coughed & choked a few times.  I was fine & everyone was concerned.  I get it, that’s fine, annoying but fine.  This happens 1 or 2 times a week.  Everyone freaks out & in the end I’m OK.  Do people know that I also cough & “choke” at lunch when there’s nobody around?  I’m fine, please don’t worry about me.  If I hadn’t had cancer, I’d still be OK & people wouldn’t worry as much about me.  Hold my beer & watch this!

I guess keyboard players have their place.  Usually they’re in the back & not seen much.  Too bad Elton John & Billy Joel aren’t included on this list?  Neither is the dude from Foo Fighters or Pearl Jam though.

Canada Day is July 1st. Friday, no blog, you’re on your own. So far no big plans or adventures for Kim & I. Looks like a very mellow summer at home this year.

I used Kim’s exercise mat today, that she said I could use! Much better than the large puzzle pieces I’ve been using. I use 3 of them & by the end I have 1. They don’t stay together very well.

I think it’s odd that we still have to have a Gay Pride Parade? I guess it’s because there are so many people against those who are different. Well it’s 2016 & still some people can’t figure out why humans are different than them?

Rare Alter Bridge song.

Why is it that music artists don’t put there B-Sides on iTunes or streaming sites? Release the single from the album I already own & have one or two B-Sides that are only available with the purchase or streaming of the single. Do I have to go downtown to HMV, in the Cornwall Center, to purchase singles with B-Sides again? There’s a reason I stopped going downtown. Because downtown Regina wasn’t thought about long enough before they built it. It’s poorly laid out & not the easiest part of Regina to drive in, too many unnecessary one way streets.
