Exercise total; 280 leg lifts & 3850 crunches, 40 push ups

First week, 4 day week, of exercise after 2 weeks with a very sore back. Lots of stretching still. I’m still not quite at my desired total. I haven’t done a squat or push up yet, squats really work my back muscles also. I’m still shooting for my regular daily total.

80 squats, 1500 crunches, 140 leg lifts & 60 push ups everyday, 5 days a week. I’ll probably get there next week.

I forgot one cover song.

This is just sad to have this happening all over the world.

I think anyone who’s watched “Stranger Things” on Netflix would like a second season to at least fill in the plot holes & questions that came with the end of the 8 episode series

That’s pricy, but I guess it’s a box set, book, CD, & blu-ray. I’ll see if it’s in our budget, I doubt it though. Maybe I could get the album & show from iTunes?

Could be a good movie from the looks of it?

I fell asleep to“Rush” the album “Snakes & Arrows”

I exercised to “Aeges” the album “Above & Down Below” the entire album. Then I listened to “Third Ion” their 1st album “13/8 Bit” almost the entire album

Everyone is not a fan of Mondays, I get that, but Thursdays are worse to me. It’s not Hump day, it’s not Friday either. It’s the day before the day you’re waiting to finish for the weekend.

Blake Shelton with Chelsea Handler

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/see-blake-shelton-talk-rock-bottom-bonding-with-gwen-on-chelsea-20160706

That’s not necessarily “rock bottom”. I survived cancer, my story isn’t “rock bottom” either. When anyone thinks they’ve hit rock bottom, there’s likely someone else doing worse. Do you have shelter? Do you have food? If you do, & that’s all you have, you’re still not at the bottom. If you’re alive, you’re doing pretty good.

METAL FANS/BAND MEMBERS

If you’re getting this on facebook, please like & share it?

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

Metal fans get a bad reputation because of the music we like. Not every metal fan or band member is a flat out metal head though. The metal musicians and fans are some of the kindest people I’ve met. I’m in a wheelchair. When I go to The Exchange to see a local metal band play, TONS of people stop & say hello, shake my hand, chat for a bit, help me out if needed, hold open a door, etc. Nobody goes out of their way to be harmful to anyone. There’s a bad seed in every crowd so I don’t necessarily hang around those people. The people I know that play or listen to aggressive music won’t judge you on what you listen to for music. They know others can instantly judge them by their metal music. I’m not afraid to tell anyone what I listen to. Here’s a few examples of what I listen to….

It’s subjective. A song does not have an influence as to who you are! You like it because you like it, so why hide it? The only music fans I’ve met who don’t consider their music offensive are country music fans. It doesn’t bother me, I do enjoy a small sampling of country music here & there. It’s a lot like extremely heavy metal. Good for a bit, but not for more than one album a day. Slayer is as offensive as a Southern twang country artist to me! Kim was listening to “The Help” audio book on the way to who knows where, too much twang for me. I’m not trying to rattle anyone’s cage in particular, these are just off the top of my head examples……

I did it! I watched “Silence of the Lambs” with Kim. I put on my big boy pants, sucked it up & just asked Kim to hold me when I got scared. I haven’t watched that movie in over a decade. It’s not that freaky of a movie, but when they show Anthony Hopkins in a straight jacket & the brown muzzle/mask, I pee a little then curl up into the fetal position. Anything with Anthony Hopkins in it gives me the HEEBIE JEEBIES now! Blue Jays play a late game tonight. I’ll likely sit through a sequel, then watch the game?

I’ll tell you right off the bat, I DON’T VOTE OR FOLLOW POLITICS OR & here’s why. I get a kick out of watching greasy scum bags doing commercials to “help” their campaign by telling you the opposition can’t do this or that. Whoever’s commercial it is will promise you the moon though. I have 0 desire to sift through the nonsense & ballyhoo as to who I’d vote for. When politicians can honestly tell me how & what they can do then I’ll consider voting? Here’s 2 examples of what I’ve seen right out of the gate……

Brewster actually came to play with me while I was on the floor doing my exercise!!! That made me happy, he hasn’t done that in the last 2 weeks! He usually puts his squeak toy beside my head while doing my crunches today he left it right on my face. We played for a bit but he really just wanted me to rub his throat & belly.

One trilogy done many more to watch! I forgot how good the Christian Bale “Batman” trilogy is, & how good/dark Heath Ledger played The Joker. Thanks Cameron & Michelle Rorquist that was my weekend! Baseball, Football & Batman!   Cam & Michelle bought “The Dark Knight” DVD while I was in the hospital.  I had cancer, they asked me what they could do or what did I need?  My response “The Dark Knight” movie??? FANTASTIC weekend on the couch! Even Kim got into the Batman movies. Brewster even calmed down a bit, the only problem with every action movie is the sound. You blast the sound to hear the dialogue, then you have to turn it way down during the action sequences, so the people on the other end of town don’t hear the movie. Ah, well. What trilogy next? 6 Star Wars, Back to the Future, original Lord of the Rings (sans Hobbit), 4 American Pie movies, Austin Powers, etc. Better be careful, Kim may hurt me.

Let’s get something straight? I’m perfect but Kim’s a genius. Shh! Don’t tell her I said that OK….actually……………..DELETE, DELETE, DELETE, how do you work this fandangled contraption????????

No I do like Megadeth, they shared this on Facebook….

Personally any song from the beginning of “Badmotorfinger” on it’s quite difficult to find a bad Soundgarden song there’s some that aren’t up to par, but still decent.

Big Wreck fan gets on stage during concert

BREAKING NEWS!!!! Kim is home today, she’s better than last night when she felt she might be catching the flu. Anyways she was going through her CD binder & found my Dave Grohl autographed ticket stub & news paper photo from 2000 in Saskatoon! Kim’s feeling much better today but not quite right yet. This song is the only one in the first 3 Foo Fighters’ albums that I tolerate & wait for the next song “Learn to Fly”.

Yes, the video of the older gentleman trying to put on his rain cape is funny. Notice in this life or death moment the phone catches all of the action. I don’t know what you’d do in this situation but video recording it would be the furthest from my mind?

Last night, after I posted my blog, I found out that you can still share your digital music if the person doesn’t use iTunes Match (home sharing without turning on a computer & unable to stream in a vehicle. No biggie, back to iTunes home sharing since Match is actually taking the songs I purchased from iTunes away from our TV on 2 recently purchased albums. They’re fine on any other device. Just means my iPod classic will be in the vehicle on long trips along with Kim’s phone.

Paramore shared it………
