The Blue Jays won 5-2 AWESOME!!!  4 runs came from home runs.  Would they have won without home runs?  One day they’ll go to the homerun well & it could be empty when they need it.  That’s the only thing they need to fix.  Everything else is REALLY good!  Baltimore is very similar.  Their 2 runs came from a 2 run homerun.  That game could have easily gone either way.

That was a baseball game!  2-2 in the 11th inning then a 3 run home run to end it!  How much do you want Edwin?  “Toronto’s got a blank check Eddie.  You write the price”

On to Texas!  That series will be ugly if history has taught us anything.  Toronto has had a target on their back since last year in Texas, Jose Bautista’s bat flip to be specific last year in the playoffs, followed by the fight this tear in May.

Wait so there’s fighting in Hockey, baseball, & football why do we need UFC/MMA or Boxing?

I’m waiting for baseball, not fighting.  I want to be entertained, I wonder why I gave up on hockey?  Oh, right because they all forgot how to score & started fighting instead?

 

I didn’t really exercise today.  I did 100 squats & then just stretched.  All of my joints & muscles are quite sore.  I’m guessing it’s from doing my normal exercises, helping Kim out more since she’s still has a very sore back, & wrangling Brewster, who can’t jump on the bed because it’s quite high, yet he jumps down quite often.

Kim is worried slightly about our financial situation.  She’s working as a contract worker aka she doesn’t get paid unless she’s there working.  She was to start a new job in the same office on Monday, filling in for a co-worker going on maternity leave.  That job will still be there when her back is better.  “In the meantime”, zippo income.

Today was a day to forget, Murphy’s Law.  Started at 8:00 am with Brewster puking on our bed.  Since then, everything I touch turns into a disaster.

Yeah, it stated snowing here today.  I don’t think it will stick around though?

 

Yes “Big Wreck” is still mixing the new album from the looks of it!

Audio clip on their Facebook page!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I think I heard some banjo in the background?  In a good way!

That was quite the busy week for me! I purposely don’t leave the house much during the week. Saskatoon on Monday, Bushwakkers on Wednesday, my parent”s place on Friday, then a football game on Saturday = a tired me. Especially after sleeping on the couch Saturday night. Great weekend but oh my am I tired! No plans for this weekend……………………………………..yet.

I don’t think a TON of people are on www.youtube.com to look up “Sixx AM”. Unless I’m included for this blog? Yeah, I get it. They want the advertising, I don’t own any “Sixx AM” but if you put a youtube mix on, that is truly free music.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.

OK so we know there was another shooting in Orlando in a gay night club. I think it’s terrible & flat out wrong. I haven’t opened facebook yet, but I’m sure that news will be everywhere. I don’t want to repeat the story from everyone. I’ll post 3 links of the shooting & leave it at that. Nobody needs to hear/see it over & over again. I’m not making light of it either. It’s bad news that can’t be changed. It was beyond stupid that a 27 year old male opened fire killing & injuring I think it was 40 people, just because they’re gay. If you don’t understand that they’re gay at least acknowledge it & get over it. They weren’t just gay, that was somebody’s son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, friend, father, mother, cousin, etc. You can’t label them as just gay, they’re humans, like we all are!

When I die, I don’t want to be remembered as “That guy who had cancer”! Quick & easy label. I want to be remembered as a friend, son, brother, husband, someday maybe an uncle, a son-in-law, etc. Not the guy that had cancer!

And boom. Orlando shooting news. How did society get this way? Maybe because so many people in the USA have a gun with them 24/7?

Kim was running a bit late this morning so while she got ready to leave @ 7:00 am, I came out of our room @ 6:30 & got through 1/2 of my exercise. I get up & just get it out of the way.

I guess I should do a more in depth weekend update? Kim’s parents were here, I always like seeing them. They’re FANTASTIC people, that raised 3 great kids. Friday evening we ordered supper from “East Side Mario’s” & just watched some TV. Saturday everyone went shopping, I’m not big on shopping, I stayed home. Later on in the afternoon we went to Kim’s older sister’s place (Sherry & James’ place to hang out & visit. Sherry fired up the BBQ & made burgers for us all! Sunday was our day to do some cleaning & other stuff so Kim could be ready for the week. I showered, Kim buzzed my head as usual, so that I look like “Powder”. I cleaned what I could & tried to go as quickly as I could to watch a movie at my parents place in the home theater room in the basement. We watched “Deadpool” not “Powder”

Deadpool is an R rated action/comedy movie & definitely not for kids!

OK, that baseball game yesterday was laughable 13-3 for the visiting Tampa Bay Rays? Now I know what other teams fan base felt like against the Toronto Blue Jays in August & September last year. Good thing they had those fights with Texas on Sunday, it really made the team better & the millionaires will get their suspensions today, that will really help matters. Bautista & Encarnacion’s contracts are finished with the Jays at the end of the season. At this point, I don’t think I’d offer either of them a contract. Let someone else pick up the dead weight. Aren’t most sports a business of “What have you done for me lately?”? Bautista & Encarnacion haven’t done much of anything this year so far. The dollar amount for their contracts seems to be getting much smaller with each game.

^^I hope they all feel better now after they lost that game? A broken bone will heal, a suspension/fine will pass a WIN is forever.

Now it’s wait & see who’s suspended & how many people are allowed to be on the field. Each team has a 25 man roster. I counted about 4 people who will likely be suspended & fined.

I was the idiot who pretty much blasted whoever that was different from me. That’s not right! Will I remember having cancer in 20 years, sure. Will it be a huge problem? No! I work out to change my situation. Nobody gave me cancer. Do I like what happened? Of course not. So I’ll try to fix it MY WAY! Friends & family support are always welcome, but only I can make a difference for me! In other words “Hold my beer & watch this!!!!” This entire ordeal could be an epic fail video on www.youtube.com

Oh, do I love me some Prince!

EARLY “RISE TODAY”

I fell asleep to “The 1975” the Self Titled album released in 2014

I woke up to “Stone Temple Pilots” their last studio album with Scott Weiland, Self Titled.

I exercised to “Into Eternity” the album “Dead or Dreaming”

Yep, I woke up around 4:00 am, got out of bed around 5:00 am, had my breakfast. Emptied the dishwasher & put few dirty dishes in it. Then watched a bit of TV & exercised! Not sure why I woke up so early, I didn’t screw up my pills, so I’m not sure? Kim & I did go to bed around 10:00 pm which is early for me, I usually get in bed around 11:00 or 11:30 pm?

Yeah, I watched the Superbowl……………..half time show & that was it. Coldplay, Bruno Mars, & Beyonce did really well. It’s definitely in my personal top 3 half time shows, along with the following clip, & Prince in 2007 where he covered “Best of You” by Foo Fighters, Prince has zippo on www.youtube.com

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Chromeo”. Yes, I had a dance party & I used my transfer pole. Went to take my shirt off & I got that look from Brewster “What you talkin about Willis?” and the EVERYTHING stayed on. There was no sexy dance party here.

 

It doesn’t feel like Christmas yet. There’s little to no snow on the ground, our place is consistently at +24-+26 celsius although the heater never cuts in since it’s set to +22 celsius. If it’s dark until 9:00 am-5:00 pm, it should be cooler in here? I hate the heat! Anything over +23 celsius, I’m not a happy camper………WAIT……….POLAR VORTEX……………WE CAN BE FRIENDS!

Drum off Dave Grohl vs. Animal!

Big Wreck was playing this song, on stage, in Saskatoon at Edgefest 1999. I decided to jump in the mosh pit, then a body came flying at me, while holding another crowd surfer, he or she landed on my face. I left Edgefest when it was over with a broken nose & blood all over me.

Today I was listening to the same song while folding laundry, & didn’t break any bone or cartilage! 16 years & I’m still a bad ass!

 

I like Mark Tremonti, but it is VERY subjective. The award should be renamed the most popular guitarist.

http://loudwire.com/mark-tremonti-best-guitarist-2015-5th-annual-loudwire-music-awards/

 

Songs I like, “Walk off the Earth” had to pass on “The Verve Pipe” & “Volbeat”. Not a fan of “Volbeat” I got 3 albums from iTunes & they got old quick. “The Verve Pipe” I have because I had to learn one song, I haven’t really listened to the entire album.

Wednesday’s Rock It Out Blog. Cassettes? No thank you. Vinyl, CD, or Digital. I like having the actual product in my hands but digital music is so convenient! I’m running out of room for CDs or vinyl.

I prefer this version of the movie. Not the Jonny Depp version. The book is better than either movie in my opinion.

REALLY! Alcohol ban at an AC/DC show. If I’m at a concert I MIGHT have a beer. I have never been drunk at a concert. I’m there to watch the band on stage. Lot’s of other people like to get a little tipsy. That’s fine with me, just not how I roll.

Stephen Colbert on the holiday Starbucks cup. It’s what’s inside that counts. A $5 coffee that tastes nothing like coffee. A treat to have maybe 3 times a year, get over it.

My mother came home yesterday from Arizona. I think everyone in my family thinks I’m an alcoholic? I’m not…………..no I’m not in a 12 program where denial is the first step or admitting I have a problem as a first step. Mom brought me 3 shot glasses. Thanks Mom, but I don’t measure other than to see if it’s roughly 2 fingers \m/. Is everyone trying to tell me I have a problem? I have roughly 20 shot glasses in the cupboard yet I have 0-4 drinks in total on a weekend? lol!

When Carly Rae Jepsen releases singles, I like them & I’m unimpressed with the album.

I had her pegged as a young 20 something year old but Kim did some digging and found out she’s 29.

The Toronto Blue Jays have a young promising starting pitcher who “lives in a van behind a Walmart”

Share this link & pass it around to those that might enjoy. Tell them how to subscribe from a desk top or laptop computer! Let’s get some more people on board? http://www.amillionmilesawayblog.com Don’t feel as though you need to click on every link. That’s why I try to do a short explanation for each link if it’s not a youtube link, that is usually open.
Did anyone else see this on SNL? I honestly thought the dancers were a joke? I was waiting for someone to crash the set & start a real performance. Shortly afterwards I turned it off. Kevin Hart’s monologue was the best part of the show for me & I’m pretty sure I’m not Sia’s demographic? White male about to turn 35 & likes metal or hard rock mostly. I’ve recently seen SNL actor’s in the exact attire for a skit. I was watching since I find Kevin Hart hilarious & I always record SNL.

This reminds me of “Prodigy”. I’ve heard their name but never bothered looking them up.

Mom receives “Death Threats” over Pentagram brake lights on school? I don’t care. I don’t think any kid would even bother to look at the break lights on their school bus, yet people waste their time complaining about this. There’s other problems far more serious than what a school bus has as a brake light. If it was missing break lights all together, it likely wouldn’t be on the internet?
