I fell asleep to “Paramore” again the album “After Laughter”, followed by a 1970s rock compilation called “Riff Rock High”

I exercised to “Corrosion of Conformity” the album “Deliverance”, followed by “Alice Cooper” the album “Paranormal”

 

Yes, I’m getting tired of talking about him & watching CNN like it’s going out of style.  He’s on a 17 day vacation.  I’m sure I have never taken 17 days off in a row since I had a summer break in elementary school!  How do you lead one of the most powerful countries in the world & just relax for 17 days?  Does this mean American’s get 17 days off too?  Crap, he still has Wi-Fi & his cell phone, be ready twitter followers.  I guess there are some renovations going on in “…that dump…” now as well (The White House according to Donnie).

Stephen Colbert nailed it saying “Change the locks while you’re at it”.  Hahaha! I feel sorry for the American public!  Nothing but bad news for our neighbors to the south.  Didn’t turn out the way most of us wanted.  But just like a random mass shooting, what ya gonna do?

With Donnie on vacation for so long, I hear there’s a term position available at the White House!  Hillary, Bernie you have plans this month?

 

THAT’S ALL FOR WHAT’S ON MY MIND & CANCER TALK!  HERE COMES THE POPCULTURE STUFF! 

 

My T-Shirts decided to turn to dust all at the same time?  I’ve never owned a Royal Blood shirt though?  I should have got one when I saw them in 2015.

I fell asleep to “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “Rated R” followed by “Radiohead” the album “The Bends”

 

I exercised to “Corrosion of Conformity” the album “America’s Volume Dealer” then 2 “Diemonds” albums on shuffle

 

I completely forgot!  Thursday, July 26th 2012 was my final day in the Wascana Rehabilitation Center.  I was discharged in the early afternoon after my last physio session & a short meeting with my doctor, therapists, & pharmacist.  We’ll leave the details for Friday!

 

SHARK WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yah, it’s Shark Week on the Discovery channel.  I love Shark Week.  It hit me the other day.  Why are people so afraid of sharks?  Is it because they will bite & kill if needed?  Probably.  Well the seas & oceans are where they live, their home.  Humans live on dry land, that’s our home.  We go into their home uninvited to poke & prod them to learn about them.  If a stranger came into your house & started doing scientific tests on you, would you just sit by & let them do that or would you retaliate so much to avoid them ever coming back?  I would yell, swear, fight & act like I was right out of my mind with a baseball bat in hand!

I’m not about to welcome a complete stranger into my home at any given time to do as they please?  I wonder why sharks can kill people?  Oh right, that’s their self-defense kicking in!  The scientists doing all of these tests will say “This doesn’t hurt the animal”.  Great, how do you know that?  Are you a shark that has experienced this type of testing?  Oh, you tried it on yourself & it didn’t bother you, really?  The shark feels pain at the exact same threshold as you?  Tell me a better story, I don’t buy that one.

Then they investigate sharks in the deep ocean, where it’s very dark 4000 feet.  I wonder why those species live in the deep ocean?  I’m guessing part of the reason is they don’t want to be bothered.

It’s great that scientists & divers have a thirst for knowledge, but does anyone NEED to know what’s going on 4000 feet down on the ocean floor?

Our weekend finished with me watching most of the Jays game until it looked as though it was out of hand by 8 runs for the wrong team.  Now that they’re basically out of it, “Blue Jays in :30” is all I need to see.

Yes, it’s a regular 5 day week for us this week.  That means as of Monday, I’m back to my exercise routine.  I’d love to increase a few things, but I have to take my back into consideration.

 

THAT’S ALL FOR WHAT’S ON MY MIND & CANCER TALK!  HERE COMES THE POPCULTURE STUFF!

RATING & REVIEWS ARE ODD

I exercised to “Corrosion of Conformity” the album “Blind”

I did my squats in silence & had to rest to catch my breath.

Weird/early baseball game today?

 

I was looking at “Suicide Squad” to purchase.  I’ve heard nothing but bad things about the movie.  I look on iTunes & it’s rated terribly, Amazon reviews are very positive 4/5 stars.  Batman vs. Superman was rated terribly also, after seeing it in the theater, I bought it ASAP on iTunes & I’ve likely watched the “Ultimate Edition” 6 or 7 times.  Remember, I had 2 weeks without a computer.  I watched movies & read a lot.

I guess I do reviews in a way, “Check it out” or “Stay away” from this thing.  I guess that’s my take on whatever the subject is.  So I encourage you to check out whatever you like either on this blog or from a friend.  I’m not always right about what you may or may not like.  Batman vs. Superman is hands down the best comic book movie I’ve seen.  That includes “300” & “300 Rise of an Empire” or at least as good, but that’s just my take on it.

 

Oh, happy day!  Yesterday immediately after I posted the blog, I checked iTunes.  Highly Suspect finally had the preorder for their new (2nd) album, “The Boy Who Died Wolf”  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

In Flames shared it….

 

Heard some of the outro music from the new Big Wreck album on Facebook.  Sounding REALLY good, looking forward to it.  Nice follow up to this album………….

At some point in the early ‘90s I figured that my favourite rap songs were the same music as my parents’ rock music.  I didn’t know what sampling was but I knew a few songs were really similar.

EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL & THE WEEKEND’S HERE!!!

I fell asleep to “Walk off the Earth” the album “Sing it all Away”

I exercised to “Coldplay” the album “A Head Full of Dreams” followed by “Corrosion of Conformity” the album “Wiseblood”

SHARE THIS PLEASE?

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

https://www.facebook.com/A-Million-Miles-Away-Blog-1597618270456002/?ref=hl

Weekly total; 7500 crunches, 710 leg lifts, 250 push ups, 400 squats.

80 squats, 1500 crunches, 140 leg lifts & 60 push ups everyday, 5 days a week.

I’d like to see 100 squats a day, 200 leg lifts a day, & 100 push ups a day. It may take a while but I’ll get there eventually.

I didn’t make it to my pushups on Monday, that’s why the total is off a bit. I was tired. Today I managed to do 10 more leg lifts than I have before. The point of doing them on your back is to breathe & keep your abdominal muscles flexed, while raising & lowering your leg at a controlled speed. If I hear a thump when I lower my leg, that doesn’t count, I do it again!

I was given exercises to do away from the Wascana Rehabilitation Center when I left. There’s quite a bit more to get to!

I think I’ve said this before, so sorry if I’m repeating myself? The further away I get from having cancer, the less I think of it. My cancer is long gone. “The line is a dot”

Those who have passed from cancer, well it’s going to take a while for others to feel normal. Nobody needs to worry about me, my cancer, or the future. We’ll cross that bridge when we get there. I exercise 5 days a week to make the crossing of that bridge easier!

Remember, when you go to work I work too. Just shorter hours being paid by disability & unemployment insurance. I exercise 1 ½ – 2 hours a day & write this as mostly the info I want to know & other nibblets for you. That’s how my days work.

I see far too much Metallica news on the horizon. I’m not a fan of Metallica in general. I do own 4 albums though 2 of them are on my iPod & from iTunes. The album with the symphony & the “Garage Inc.” album are on my iPod, but I rarely listen to them. I bought the CD of the “Black” album & “Master of Puppets”, they’re in my closet for good. This new song sounds promising though. I’ll wait to hear it before I buy it. I’m still a skeptic.

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?

LAMB OF GOD IN SASKATOON MONDAY NIGHT

I fell asleep to “Corrosion of Conformity” the album “America’s Volume Dealer”

I exercised to first “Halestorm” the album “Into The Wild Life” that finished, I put on “Black Sabbath” 10 albums on shuffle.

Yes, I’ve kept up with my exercise all week, I slept in “yesterday” & after the short time in here, I immediately did my exercise.

Yes, Corey & I went to Saskatoon to see, Corrosion of Conformity, Clutch, then headliner Lamb Of God. Only my 2nd time seeing Lamb of God live. We missed Corrosion of Conformity unfortunately, but for a good reason. We were sitting in a bar with Jason Lowe having a couple pints of beer & a bucket of bacon with Maple syrup on the side. The bacon was very thick & didn’t have all of that visible fat that is in most bacon. We stayed there until almost 8:00 pm.

We got to the venue with enough time to grab merchandise & then see Clutch, who were incredible! Then the headliner Lamb of God! The sound for Clutch was much better than it was for Lamb of God, Corey & I both thought that. The Clutch albums are great, but seeing them live was one of those, “HOLY CRAP BATMAN” – Robin, moments.

Corey & I made up our own “Beer, Bacon, & Bands” festival, & we didn’t have to purchase a ticket to go to that festival, just the concert. My brother was sick, he had a ticket, yet no one to sell or give it to. I really wanted to see Corrosion of Conformity though, ah well, next time?

Clutch

Then the headliner Lamb of God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

I know Lamb of God played these songs & more. I’m not very well versed in regards to Clutch though.

Nice visit with Loafer. The only minor problem was that the street where the pub was, was under construction. We parked about 2 blocks away because from it. Ah well, Siree told us where to go, & how to get there.

Thanks to Corey for taking me to the show, and making sure everything was smooth sailing!

EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL

I fell asleep to “The Watchmen” first I listened to the entire album “Silent Radar” then put on the album “In the Trees”. First a track from “In the Trees”

I’m a BIG fan of The Watchmen, originally out of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Now they tour once in a while, no new music from them since the early to mid 2000s & are now in Ontario.

I exercised to “Corrosion of Conformity” 7 albums on shuffle.

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

Exercise total for the week; 6000 crunches, 1200 crunches 5 days a week, 40 each day, only 4 days this week 160 leg lifts, & 110 squats, 30 one day then 40 today & yesterday. Monday I only did my crunches.

At first I hated exercising. Now if I miss a day, which hasn’t happened other than the week I took a break from it, I feel like I’ve “wasted the day”. That entire week seemed like a waste to me. I felt guilty that I was sitting on my butt reading on my Kindle or watching TV. That’s what weekends are for.

I’m OK with Mondays, it’s Thursdays that get me. A Thursday is not hump day or Friday. I always think “DAG NAM IT! It’s only Thursday, one more day to go!”

This week has been totally backwards for me. I started off feeling tired & lazy. As the week went on, I seemed to get more energy with every passing day. Which means I had the energy to increase the number of squats I do, only 10 more but it felt like a step in the right direction!

Pre-ordered “Chevelle” last night & got this tune with the pre-order

Alter Bridge update from the studio

“11 songs down. 3 to go. Tracking with Elvis and Jeff.” This is Myles doing the vocals! “I want it now”! With the lack of Tool & Foo Fighters on hiatus, take Tremonti & Alter Bridge!

At least Ozzy & Sharon Osbourne are civil in this appearance

Just for my mother! I’d play this on my guitar all of the time & she got tired of it & Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” that I’d play also. Both sans solo.

Then I’d just play random Foo Fighters’ songs

U2 in Paris after the attacks

I’ll be a U2, Barenaked Ladies, & Foo Fighters fan forever.

U2 was my first favourite group, Barenaked Ladies were my first concert, & Foo Fighters took over my first favourite band roll in High School. 1992 I saw Barenaked Ladies for my first concert at the age of 12.
