I fell asleep to first “Candlebox” the album “Disappearing in Airports”, then “Bruno Mars” the album “24K Magic”

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

I played baseball from 1984-1997.  When I watch baseball I understand what is going on in each players head.  Every player is considering what the pitch will be, the defense is thinking about what they’ll do when the ball is hit & where they need to be.  So I get that it’s boring for many people.  I admit I wasn’t the smartest player on the team but I tried to keep track of everything that was going on.  It’s a thinking game, then a quick reaction to what’s happening with every pitch.

I played on 2 teams in 1997 High School team & a city league team, mostly at 3B.  I couldn’t hit water if I fell out of a boat.  It’s reassuring to know what the coaches were thinking on my way to the ball park.  “Chris playing 3B batting 9th”.  Very good to know where I’d be for 98% of the time for 2 years.  I did throw my arm out the last year (1997).  When I saw that my boss at the Delta Hotel, & later on a paper supplier were looking for players on the company softball team.  I jumped at the chance to join.  I miss it, so I watch almost every Blue Jays game on TV.  If I don’t see the game because we’re out, I record it & if it’s done I’ll watch Blue Jays in :30.  If we’re going to my parents cabin for a few days or elsewhere I’ll record all of the Blue Jays in: 30 while we’re gone.

I miss being in a rock band also.  I’ve been in 2 or 3.  I was always the singer & rhythm guitar player.  I only sang because I was “The Best of what’s Around”.  I certainly don’t miss gathering my gear, every bass & guitar (3-7 of them), & taking them home at 2:00 am though.  Now I just listen to a TON of music.  Eventually I’ll be playing my guitar it just won’t be on a stage at a bar.

I’ll probably will never play catch again with any type of ball, let alone a baseball.  I’ll never play live music again either.  I can sit around here at some point though & play my guitar though!  Things changed immediately when I came out of a coma.  Maybe as much as everyone changes or maybe more?  Change isn’t necessarily a bad thing!  I highly suggest not changing anything because of cancer, cause WOW, that came out of nowhere for me…………………….BAZINGA!

Those were changes for me & it took me a while to get over the fact that I wouldn’t be able to do them.  I was in the Rehabilitation Center at the time so it took me maybe 2 or 3 years to get over it, but I did.  Along with figuring out how to do other things a different way.  The world doesn’t always change to fit your needs, you have to figure out how you’ll adapt to the world & keep up with everyone else.

MERRY CHRISTMAS/HAPPY HOLIDAYS/ENJOY SOME TIME OFF OF WORK!

Being politically correct is really not for me, but there it is for you!

 

Nothing but Thieves – Self Titled.  I’d put this as my number 1 album of the year!  This is not a metal album!

 

Stitched Up Heart – Never Alone.  This & Alter Bridge are in a dead heat for number 2 on my list

 

Alter Bridge – The Last Hero

 

From here on everything’s tied for 3rd place!

Rob Zombie – The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser.  LANGUAGE!!!!

 

Ben Harper – Call It What It Is

 

Candlebox – Disappearing in Airports

 

In Flames – Battles

 

Third Ion – Biolith

 

Opeth – Sorceress

 

Sum 41 – 13 Voices

 

Anthrax – For All Kings

 

Highly Suspect – The Boy Who Died Wolf LANGUAGE!!!!!!!  The more I listen to this album, the more I like it!

 

The Pretty Reckless – Who You Selling For?

 

The 1975 – I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it

 

NOTHING WRONG WITH THESE ALBUMS, JUST LACKING SOMETHING.

 

Tremonti – Dust

 

The Agonist – Five

 

Chevelle – The North Corridor

 

Green Day – Revolution Radio

 

OLDER ALBUMS, LIVE ALBUMS & EPs

 

Scream – Fumble (Dave Grohl’s group before Nirvana)

 

Oasis – Be Here Now & Definitely Maybe

 

Barenaked Ladies – Live @ Red Rocks

 

Taylor Hawkins – Kota EP

 

Lamb of God – The Duke EP

 

Portal – Blood Red Tape.  Independent group from Alberta, Canada, I think?  They remind me of Tool.

https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/blood-red-tape/id292933756

 

Vinyl Hero – 7 days on a train EP.   Another independent group from somewhere in Canada, I believe?

 

Candlebox – Love Stories & Other Musings

 

It’s not that I don’t like EPs or Live albums.  EPs leave me wanting a full album of at least 10 songs & live albums are pretty much a live album of Greatest Hits.

 

ALBUMS I HAVEN’T PURCHASED YET LISTEN TO ON APPLE MUSIC

 

Diemonds – Never Wanna Die

 

Diemonds – The Bad Pack

 

Metallica – Hardwired to Self-Destruct

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Bruno Mars – 24K Magic

I’d have to agree with the review.  There is nothing I should like about this album.  In the end, I love it & I don’t know why?

 

Boston – Boston

 

The Damned Things – Ironiclast

 

When the Holidays are over & Kim gives me the OK, I’ll purchase these albums.  If Apple goes under my purchased files are mine.  I, personally refuse to “download” streaming music aka Apple’s not taking away my music!  It’s a free country use a streaming site however you like.  Of course I’ll buy these gradually, unless we can make it rain with iTunes gift cards in January……………I doubt it!  Only took Metallica 33 years to release something original that I like & listen too.  Hahahaha!  I have 2 other Christmas albums.  Those aren’t buy now albums.

 

Just because I can!!!!!!!!!!!

 

My questions for anyone reading this.  What were your preferred album(s) this year?  Also, how would you classify Alter Bridge?  Are they rock, metal or right on the line between both genres?  I really want to hear from anyone reading this.  I’m not the judge of what’s good or bad.  Maybe you’re not a fan of rock or metal, that’s fine with me, I used to be completely against music with a distorted electric guitar involved, so please let me know?

I really don’t care for a week of just stretching & not doing much for exercise.  I feel incredibly guilty.  I keep thinking “I should be exercising”.   Everything feels OK, but next week will be more of a buildup week, a week to gradually get up to my exercise goals.  My body can’t just “automatically” flip a switch & go all out.  I’d love for that to happen, but I’d end up in the same place I am now.  I really don’t need that to happen.

Some people tend to think my life is a cake walk, super easy, fantastic retirement.  That is so not the case!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  When I get up at 6:00 or 7:00 am, I get up & go ass much & as fast as I can.  Honestly, I’m more stressed now than I’ve ever been!  In the end it’s my fault, I always expect more/better from myself (self-inflicted stress).

Yeah, I watched the CMAs/Country Music Awards.  I’m not much of a country music fan, I watched it so I could hang out with my wife.  How did a rock & metal fan marry a country music fan?  Good thing all of her other attributes shine brighter than her taste in music.  At least the Dixie Chicks performed & Zac Brown Band were nominated.

Third Ion……………….LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I guess using foul language solidifies your life as a metal/rock musician.  I only swore on stage if it was a lyric in a cover song.  BECAUSE IT’S NOT NEEDED OTHER WISE.  In the end it’s the group/musicians show.  If I’m offended by the language used, whoever it is has my money, & I have every right to leave, or not attend or purchase a ticket.  That being said, if language mattered to me I’d never see Foo Fighters live.

I fell asleep to “Alter Bridge” the album “The Last Hero”.  Got up to pee & fell asleep to “Nothing but Thieves”

I exercised to “Candlebox” 5 albums on shuffle

This month is kicking my butt.  I don’t know why but each day feels like I’m doing everything slow?  Not enough hours in the day?

I made a new rule for myself absolutely nothing until the exercises are done.  I asked Kim to wake me up before she went into the bathroom to get ready for work.  I got up, & had finished doing 100 squats before she left for work at 7:00 am.  I finished my exercises, showered & I’m having my juice, coffee, & water (3 liters of water is the normal amount for me a day, probably why I pee so much?)

Yesterday we had a power outage for about 45 minutes in the morning.  Brewster has bad anxiety & started trembling as soon as the power went off & I was feeling lazy, which seems to be the common trend lately?  I did all 4 of my exercises.  2 of which I only squeaked out half of the amount.  I don’t like that, I get disappointed when that happens.

 

I got 100%, how many can you get?  I found this pretty easy.

From what I can tell, it looks as though “Paramore” has 2 more guitar tracks to finish on their new album.  I’m guessing vocals & mixing to follow?

My wife is mind blowingly INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  She fought everywhere in whatever hospital to stay with me.  She’d go home to shower & my parents would “watch over…” me.  She’d go home, shower & hug my clothes in my closet at home, just so she could pretend she was hugging me.  She had a cot to sleep on beside me.  Eventually in the WRC she started sleeping in my bed.  I’m 6’1”, apparently that’s HUGE?  This meant my bed was much bigger than most beds.  Plenty of room for 2 of us.  Good thing my brother or cousin weren’t staying in there 6’3” for my brother & 6’5” or more for my cousin, Mark Towers.

Where ever I was, Kim was with me.  Kim was “The Nurse who loved me!”  She REALLY stepped up her game so I could venture out to the lake & other places.  Everybody stepped up, friends & family!  I didn’t really realize I had cancer until sometime in 2009?  I slept 23 hours a day while I was in the Pasqua hospital, then I moved to the Wascana Rehabilitation Center sometime in 2009.  I’m no hero, I just did what needed to be done, & I still am!  You work at your place of employment, right?  My job is to get better ASAP, so I’m doing a job too, and the government pays me through disability & CPP (Canadian Pension Plan).  When I turn 65, all of that stops & I’ll live on my RRSPs.

The only thing that went wrong was that my mortgage insurance lasted 2 years, I needed 4.5 years & we ended up paying for nursing supplies because Kim was doing so much for me, instead of a nurse.  Kim started making paintings to sell as source of income, she’s still doing it, just not as much.

Kim’s hilarious too.  We’re on our 2nd box of Halloween chocolate bars.  I don’t like the “Temptation” of having sweets around.  If I see them I eat them.  The first box she put on the top shelf of our pantry.  Haha!  I can stand up by holding the pantry door frame.  Yes, chocolate is one of my many nemeses’.  We’re on our 2nd box now & she didn’t even bother to try to hide it.  No, I did not put Halloween candy on any shopping list, only $1,000,000!  That didn’t happen?  She avoided telling me we had chocolate in the house.  I found it on the floor of the pantry.  If she’s not hiding it, neither should I?  Last night I just took the box with me after supper, right over to the couch to watch TV.  I just turned to Kim & said “I’m not even going to pretend I’m just having 2 or 3”

Kim & I don’t know how to relax?  We’re both go, go, go, go people.  She works 8 hours a day, while I exercise for 2 hours a day, feel like I should curl up in the fetal position, but feel I write this for people interested, despite not being paid for it.  This is news I want to know about & feel I should share it with the masses!

Anyone can do it, everyone on Facebook has an email address & I’d prefer communicating privately through email.  But I’m on Facebook for the long haul because of this blog.  Here I am…..I guess.  I like catching up with friends who are now parents or that live somewhere else now.  That was my initial reason for joining Facebook & selling our band.  Both Facebook & email have their pros & cons.  I don’t plan on leaving Facebook anytime soon, I like getting my news spoon fed to me.

EVOLUTION

I fell asleep to “Tool” the album “Lateralus”

^^You’ll be very lucky if you hear this live. Rumor is the singer, Maynard James Keenan, blew his voice when recording this song & missed 3 weeks because of it?

I exercised to “Anthrax” 15 albums on shuffle.

This is for anyone & everyone who might find this interesting! Please help me out if you don’t mind? I’ve been sharing this publically on my page, I don’t think it’s helping? Please do what you can to spread the word?

Sorry, Netflix got me again. This time it was a David Cross stand up special. He echoed many of my statements on gun control in the USA. He filmed the special in Texas. That’s a fairly brave move in my books! He asked a question that has struck me many times. “How many innocent lives will it take before someone will do something about these mass shootings”? I thought for a bit & came up with an answer, different from his punchline.

It doesn’t have to take anymore innocent lives. You want something to change………………do it yourself. Don’t sit around & wait for someone else to do it? Easier said than done I know. I don’t vote for any Canadian elections. So call me what you will? If you’re American, vote, talk to your Mayor, Governor or even write to whoever becomes the next President. Isn’t part of the “American dream” being able to be free & able to make a difference? If so, stand up & be heard. Start that motion for change, be a leader not a follower, be aggressive, don’t be happy with the way things are. If you want a change, make it happen!

Why do I workout so much? Because I want a change of me! Nobody else can do it, just me. It’s not an easy change, people hate change or are scared of it. Change can be good. I hate new technology. Eventually I’ll have to get over that! Remember, you don’t have to start out with a HUGE change. Make a small change if you like, then make another small change & after a while it will look like a big change. I didn’t wake up one day & say “I’m going to do 1500 crunches today!” I built up to that total, starting at 20 crunches. Not much will change over night, just start chipping away at the mountain.

As a society we’re currently back tracking when we need to evolve! Not just me, but all of us!
