I fell asleep to “Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds” the album “Who Built the Moon?”

Too early to turn on workout music.  I exercised before going to the doctor.

5 day week total 600 pushups, 500 crunches, 500 leg lifts, 225 triceps pushups, 200 squats, & 200 back flexes.

Yes, I had a doctor appointment this morning.

I’m getting tired of seeing this doctor, that doctor, another doctor.  Needles have never been an issue for me.  I just want to be done with this cancer thing, it’s becoming one more thing I have to be aware of & I’m fine.  I’m just annoyed by it now.  It’s just getting in my way, taking up time I still haven’t set aside for doctor appointments.

The whole thing is just getting more annoying as it continues.  I’m alive, the doctors & nurses have a success story to write about & use for future brain cancer patients.  Take this story & save someone else’ life.  My doctors & nurses are very nice, it’s not them that annoy me, it’s the after cancer protocol that I’m tired of.  Go here, go there, do this, talk to this person.

I had cancer in 2008 & it’s 2018 now, I’m tired of this stuff!

 

I think the music I listen too is more mainstream than some readers think.  In that it’s more mainstream within it’s genre.  Lamb of God, Trivium, System of a Down, Iron Maiden, In Flames, Megadeth, Slayer, Pantera, Anthrax, etc.  They’re all bands that most metal fans could list in seconds.  Metal fans may not like them but have likely heard of them.

I find it funny that Bono still thinks/or ever considered U2 as a “punk rock” band.  Maybe the mentality of a “punk rock” band, but never has the music represented a “punk rock” sound.  I’m a BIG U2 fan but I have never thought of them as “punk rock”

Yep, “Corrosion of Conformity” released an album at midnight Eastern Time.  Once I get it & give it a few listens I’ll let you know what I think of it.  Yes, it’s a metal/hard rock album.

I think “Foo Fighters” could do the same as “Pearl Jam” just tour & randomly release a new album.  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is absolutely HILARIOUS!!!  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What has Gene Simmons, bass player of KISS, tried to trademark?

TOP 10 ALBUMS OF 2017/FINAL POST OF THE YEAR/WEEKLY EXERCISE TOTAL

600 pushups, 500 leg lifts & 225 triceps pushups!  Crunches & Back flexes will be thrown into the mix on January 2nd.  120 pushups, 100 leg lifts, 100 crunches, 45 triceps pushups, & 40 back flexes a day, 5 days a week.

I can’t really make a top 10, there were a TON of AWESOME albums released this year.  Singles, live albums, Greatest Hits & EPs don’t count.  So here they are, & after the first 2, everything is pretty much tied for 3rd.  It’s only a top 10 list with other albums below that didn’t quite make the cut.

After this, I’ll catch you January 1st, with a holiday update.

 

  1. Kelly Clarkson – Meaning of Life. Her 7th studio album, not including her Christmas album.

 

  1. Halflives – Empty Rooms. Their first album.

 

 

  1. Trivium – The Sin & the Sentence. Their 8th studio album

 

  1. Ed Sheeran – Divide. His 3rd studio album

 

  1. Royal Blood – How Did We Get so Dark? Their 2nd studio album

 

  1. Queens of the Stone Age – Villains. Their 7th studio album

 

  1. Big Wreck – Grace Street. Their 5th studio album.

 

  1. Foo Fighters – Concrete & Gold. Their 9th studio album.  Once I got past the over production on the album, I REALLY enjoy this album

 

  1. Paramore – After Laughter. Paramore’s 5th album

 

  1. Nothing but Thieves – Broken Machine. This was their second release & much like the first release, it’s my favourite album of the year.

 

HONORABLE MENTIONS

 

Stone Sour – Hydrograd.  I’m just hooked on their 2nd, 3rd, & 4th album.  This is album number 6 for them.

 

Alter Bridge – B-Sides & Rarities w/ a double album Live at the 02 Arena

 

In Flames – Down, Wicked, & No Good 4 song EP of cover songs

Yes, Chris Izsak’s hit from the ‘90s

 

Ascot Royals – New Skin EP.  They opened for Big Wreck in February

 

The Watchmen – Live & in Stereo.  21 live songs from a show in Winnipeg (their home town) at The Burton Comings Theater.

 

Pentatonix – 4 EP.  They’re 7 cover songs on the EP done by the A Capella group.

It also has a cover of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” but it’s just OK.

 

Barenaked Ladies – Fake Nudes.  An album released November 17th that will likely grow on me.

 

Alice Cooper – Paranormal.  Good album that was just missing something for me?  I can see this growing on me too

 

ALBUMS I BOUGHT BUT WASN’T HOOKED ON THEM OR I JUST HAVEN’T LISTENED TO ENOUGH

 

Linkin Park – One More Light

 

Muse – Dig Down Single

 

Jack Johnson – All the Light Above it Too

 

Prophets of Rage – Self-titled.  A bit too much on the rap side for me, but not bad.

 

I have a short list of albums to purchase from 2017.

 

Pink – Beautiful Trauma

 

U2 – Songs of Experience

 

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – Who Built the Moon?

 

The Devin Townsend Project – Transcendence

 

I’ve already checked out a few that aren’t listed here & didn’t make the cut.

 

7 albums to be released in 2018 I’ll check purchase from iTunes if I like them.

 

Myles Kennedy – Year of the Tiger

 

A Perfect Circle – TBA

 

Corrosion of Conformity – No Cross No Crown

 

Fall Out Boy – MANIA

 

Halestorm – TBA

 

Dream Theater – Into the Great Divide

 

Tremonti – TBA

 

 

Merry Christmas!

 

Happy Holidays!

 

Enjoy some time off of work!

I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the album “Concrete & Gold”

I don’t get to listen to music much at the moment, something is off with my iTunes & our universal remote is loopy at the moment.  Possibly Friday all should be normal, well the remote more than likely.  The guy helping me at Apple has been really good, above & beyond a regular customer service person.

Very short week of exercise for me!  Honestly, I could use it.  A full week seems to make me very tired.  On weekends, lately, I tend to sleep in longer, like as long as I did as a teenager.  11:00 am is quite normal for me on weekends.  I really don’t like that, it feels like I’ve wasted the day!  During the week I like getting up around 7:00 am & getting stuff done.  Lately I get up early & feel very sluggish.  I don’t know if it’s because I’ll be 38 in January or that I need a break?  We really don’t know how to relax.  We’re both tired from each of us having very different days doing very different things than the other.  I have no plan in relaxing until the break between Christmas & New Year.  I just hope I can make it that far.

Anyways, Monday was a holiday & Kim has Friday off, I’ll be off as well!  3 day week for me.  If you haven’t subscribed you may want to do so before the posts becomes a very random, instead of the typical Monday, Wednesday, & Friday.  Facebook seems to slow down from December-January.  I’ll be doing a blog post on Friday though.

Yesterday after my exercise, I was awake………………barely.  I felt…

Today was much better!

 

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

 

 

Remember please that these have all been my most precious albums that have influenced me.  I enjoy metal music, some of it, I could never play it or growl.  I played & sang rock music.  After I got into metal, I started dating Kim in 2002.  Her brother-in-law was a metal fan & we’d suggest metal & rock bands to each other.  Then my brother started listening to some metal.  These are all from the first albums I heard by these groups or purchased/borrowed.  So here’s a few bands I’ve found out about through our grape vine which includes Corey McDonald…

I know Mitch & Corey aren’t into all of this anymore, I couldn’t tell you about James though?

I discovered more on my own that James was in to, & left me to discover it on my own.

Before all of this we all got in to “System of a Down” on our own.  I really didn’t like them at first.

 

No, I don’t just listen to metal music.  I have some Harry Connick Jr, Nat King Cole, Norah Jones, Pink, Kelly Clarkson, Genesis, etc.  My first 2 CDs as a kid were….

The actual Bryan Adams album “Waking up the Neighbours”

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!

At the moment ‘Royal Blood’, ‘The Watchmen’, ‘The Smalls’, ‘Paramore’, ‘Stone Sour’, ‘Slipknot’ & ‘Big Wreck’ are ruling my world!

 

FANTASTIC Pearl Jam song, maybe it was because I could play it without putting my guitar in some wacky tuning?

 

I like ‘Walk off the Earth’ & they shared it…….

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

If you’re following the blog on my personal Facebook page, could you please follow it on the link above? Just for me to keep track of subscribers.

www.amillionmilesawayblog.com for email

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.
