5:45 AM I GOT UP TO START MY DAY I ALREADY FELT BEHIND THE DAY!!!!

I like to get up early & get stuff done, so I can be lazy & watch “Criminal Minds” on DVD or The People vs. O.J. Simpson hat we bought from iTunes.

I first fell asleep to “The 1975” the album “I love it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it”. I woke up briefly and put on “Tremonti” his first album “All I Was” hit a hard rock/metal song after a quiet ballad, that woke me up! That never happens!

First I exercised to nothing, it was far too early. When Kim left for work I’d already done ½ of my exercise. I put on “Prince” the album “1999”

Alter Bridge song on ‘The Voice’ UK

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. Encryption LANGUAGE!!!!!! I don’t think ‘Apple’ can do much of anything now. I have nothing more than an iPod & iTunes, those 2 thinks alone are kind of screwed up.

New Coheed and Cambria video!!!! This is among my most played albums on my iPod.

I’m exited for this new show. 2 half hour episodes tomorrow, then it will air on Sundays.

REALITY TV vs. FICTIONAL TV

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Queen” Greatest Hits

LANGUAGE!!!!

I posted a blog about “reality” TV in the past & I’d like to explain it in a more detailed way. “Reality” TV is not actually real. I think it should all of it should be on a game show network, because that’s most “reality” TV shows are, game shows! “If you can achieve this task, within these rules & conditions, you’ll win this prize”. Quite a few people like it, and that’s fine. If Kim is watching it, I leave the room usually. Not what I want to see. With a talk show, or news those are REAL EVENTS! If it’s a scripted show it’s like a painter with a blank canvas. A writer or team of writers can go anywhere with whatever topic! I find fictional shows much more interesting along with news & talk shows. No rules or limits, just entertainment. That’s all I want, entertain me. I don’t care for “reality” shows, but that’s just me.

STUPID PILLS!!!!

Today’s workout was brought to you by the “Lamb of God” album “As The Palaces Burn”

 

I took my day time pills instead of my night time pills last night aka I woke up at 3:15 am. Finally got up around 4:40 am or so. Shaved, emptied the dishwasher, poured my juice, made coffee, etc.

 

I wake up early & our place is still 1 celsius degree higher than our heat is set for. It’s December 3rd, why is it so warm still & where is the snow? It’s almost 6 am & I’m sweating? I really don’t like the heat. I even wore shorts to Corey & Jolene’s place last weekend! I’m always uncomfortably warm, then I exercise? Good thing I’m losing some weight! I opened the back door a bit & turned the heater off, then I did my exercises when it cooled off in here.

Songs I like, “Taylor Hawkins & The Coattail Riders” Taylor Hawkins is the drummer for Foo Fighters. He wanted this project to simply be called “The Coattail Riders”. Management told him to put his name on it so it sell more. They made 2 albums, the second one “Red Light Fever” I don’t really like. I have it on CD behind me, but I never had the desire to hear it, in the closet is where it will stay. The first album is fantastic though. I had to special order it as an import album through HMV. I’ve spent far too much money between HMV Southland & A & B Sound as well as many singles/b-sides at HMV Cornwall. The Cornwall is downtown. I’d be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t find Regina’s downtown parking/driving a good layout!

Yes he plays drums while singing all of this. He wanted to make an album with as many different rhythms as possible. The song “Get up, I wanna get down” was one of the demos rumoured to be on Foo Fighters 4th album “One by One” but never came to appear on the album or as a B-Side!

I believe this group no longer exists. He now sings & drums for a group called “The Birds of Satan”

CANCER, NO NOT MINE!

Today’s workout was brought to you by the letter “B”, as in Barstool Prophet’s album ‘Crank’. This was released in 1995, & I own it on CD. I remember hearing they were coming to town on tour for their 2nd album. It was in a bar though & I was under age.

Kim’s fine despite the lyrics. This was the first single from their first of 2 albums. I didn’t get the 2nd album & I can’t find it? Yes they’re Canadian.

https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/crank/id31688523

The Fraser family lost a distant relative yesterday morning. My biological Uncle’s sister-in-law, my cousins’ aunt. She passed away yesterday of cancer in the Wascana Rehabilitation Center, just down the hall that I was initially in on the 2nd floor. I don’t think she was there for therapy physical or occupational, she was able to go to the cafeteria on her own for her meals.

At first the outlook didn’t look promising at all, then she had surgery & things were looking much, much better, then the cancer came back & spread to some vital organs. I didn’t see her much, but it’s sad to see her leave her family & friends. I don’t know if she was in pain, but if she was, at least she’s not in it anymore.

So we add a funeral to our busy weekend. We don’t have to, but as soon as I got off the phone with my mother yesterday, I didn’t even hesitate & thought “I’m attending, no ifs, ands, or buts”.

I saw a photo on Megadeth’s facebook page yesterday. December 5th in Mexico, Megadeth, Lamb of God, Trivium all on the same bill as chosen by Slipknot who is also playing. I’m not a huge Slipknot fan, but the other 3 together would pay for my ticket to Knot Fest in a second!

Slipknot is a bit to heavy for me though. I have one album from iTunes though from earlier in their career
