I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the album “Concrete & Gold” followed by “Lamb of God/Burn the Priest” the album “Legion XX”

Woke up at 5:30 am & listened to “Dead Sara” the debut self-titled album.  I did my exercises in silence too early for music.  I ate breakfast to “Metallica” the album “Ride the Lightning”


I didn’t exercise on Wednesday since I had a doctor appointment at the cancer clinic, so only a 4 day weekly exercise total; 960 pushups, 800 leg lifts, 400 crunches, 400 squats, 440 tricep pushups, & 160 back flexes.

The tricep exercise went from 100 to 120 Thursday & Today.

What the doctors told me on Friday & every time prior to that really humbles me.  This talk of me being a “hero”, “miracle”, “best patient”, etc. used to go straight to my head & inflate my ego.  Not anymore.  I prefer to stay quiet & humble.  Sure my body survived brain cancer.  I’m thankful for that & happy to be alive.  How did my body survive?  All I did was sleep 23 hours a day for a year.  My BODY survived cancer.

I survived & immediately pissed everyone off with my words.  Once you read them, you can’t unread them.  Thanks for forgiving me, I don’t forgive me!  I HATE that I became that person at the time, I wish I could forget it.

I don’t hold onto a grudge with anyone, except myself.  I’ll beat myself up over the smallest thing, just to take a lesson on what not to do.

I’m only 38, but I’ll remember every mistake that changed my life & remind myself not to do whatever it was in that situation.


The President can call other countries “shithole countries” & keeps his job.  Roseanne Barr sends out 1 racist tweet & her show is immediately cancelled.  This is a really messed up world.  No, I’m not defending either of them.

What happened to freedom of speech?  Is it now just for Donald Trump?  I don’t like what Roseanne said or whatever comes out of Trumps yap.  Why does the multiple time offender get to keep his job, the onetime offender lose her job?

I don’t agree with either statement but at the moment they have freedom of speech, I don’t have to like what they say but they’re both using their right, even if utter stupidity comes out.


My dad & I agree on a lot of music.  I grew up on my parents’ music & I’ve exposed them to some of my music.  My dad’s iPod had died, so we took mine with some new music I introduced him to & stuff I grew up listening to.  Of course we listened to some “Queens of the Stone Age” & “Royal Blood” on the way to Calgary for the show.  Music I put on since he might be interested…





On the way back we played music he introduced me to.  All of this is on my iPod!




DIRE STRAITS (Love over Gold & Communiqué)

I’d post more but “Dire Straits” songs can be quite long.  I really like the song “Telegraph Road” but it is over 14 minutes long, skip it if you like.


Hahahaha!  Finger Eleven shared a video from when they were called “Rainbow Butt Monkeys”


Myles Kennedy: The Making of “Year of the Tiger” documentary on www.youtube.com


Also ‘Alter Bridge’ will be releasing a concert DVD/Blu-ray later this year!!!!!


Courtney Love involved in altercation with ex-son-in-law?


I said it would be released on the 25th on the previous post, sorry.  New ‘Halestorm’ will be released on Friday, July 27th.  Preorder on iTunes now.



New song from ‘Tremonti’!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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”


Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

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.

New Metallica song!!! Fans of ’80s Metallica might really enjoy this?! LANGUAGE IN THE VIDEO!!!!!



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.

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Muse” the album “Absolution”


Squats aren’t that fun. Muscles I haven’t ever thought about are killing me today. I’ve done a total of 100 squats this week. That’s enough squats for the week. I changed it up & did 50 push ups & yoga to stretch some painful muscles. I’ve got the mind of someone in their 20s & the body of someone in their 90s. Yet I haven’t turned 36 yet?


We all knew American Idol wouldn’t go on forever. I’m assuming people got bored with the platform. Not all of the winners went on to stardom, yet kids continued to audition. I couldn’t point out what went wrong other than it’s been around for 15 seasons, & FOX wanted something new? That’s just my guess. It’s weird to think some kids don’t know a world without American Idol? It’s a great marketing tool, but how many winners of the show went on to large success? I could only name a few at best. Where did the 2014 winner go?


Fall Out Boy video feat. Demi Lovato


These are just funny, hidden baseball tricks that make the opposing player look like a fool. Yes, I’ve been on both sides of these plays.


I saw some photos of some artists. “Kongos” is finishing the vocals for their album. “Linkin Park” is in the studio Chester Bennington was shown recording vocals. “Alter Bridge” are writing/rehearsing for their 5th album & will be in the studio “soon”. Looks promising for new music this year. If anyone is coming to a place near you, I encourage you to go out & support your preferred musician. This free music is hurting the industry. I should get out to more shows as well. We have an actual money tree, but it just grows leaves, not printed money……………BAD, MONEY TREE, BAD!!!!!!!!


Here’s the “Coachella” festival line up from Rolling Stone



More from Loud Wire on the “Guns n’ Roses” reunion.



I’m not a fan of these 3 groups, so for me, this is almost sad.



Wolfmother fans, here’s the new single. I like their sound, I could see the vocals getting old fast? I’ll have to check them out. I do remember hearing their first big hit in 2006 or 2007?


This is it from 2006

This was on good ol’ “Guitar Hero”

Until Blue Jay baseball ends this year. This blog will likely take a backseat so I’ll be able to watch 3 hours of baseball a day. They get October 4th-October 6th off then resume playing on the 7th.

Today’s workout was brought to you by the letter “D”, as in “Dream Theater’s” ‘Systematic Chaos’ album.

Well the 2 sports teams I cheer for won on Sunday. Saskatchewan Roughriders won their 2nd game of a season that is nearly over? The CFL has but 9 teams, too small & pretty terrible this year, EVERYONE!! Roughriders aren’t mathematically out of the playoffs yet. I’m not holding my breath on that one.

Toronto Blue Jays won their final home series of the year by sweeping the Tampa Bay Rays 3/3 games in Toronto. They were guaranteed a wild card entrance to the playoffs Friday night, but they’re not done. I want to see them win the American league East, then the entire American league. Both are well within site. The Blue Jays are currently 90W-65L and in first place in the East. The NY Yankees are in second place at 86W-69L. Only 7 games to go for the Blue Jays! 4 beginning tonight in Baltimore then 3 in Tampa Bay. Sunday in Tampa is the final regular season game for the Blue Jays. This will be the first time in 22 years that they’ve been to the playoffs, last time in ’93 they won the World Series. I’m not convinced they’ll win the World Series yet, they rely far too much on home runs. 2 or less, good chance they’ll lose. 3 or more better chance of them winning.

You’re team is out of the playoffs. Why would anybody do this to a team mate? I think Jonathan Paplebon just lost his $11 million paycheck next year. I’ve heard rumblings that he’s not the best guy to have in the club house, finally there’s video proof.

Don’t air your dirty laundry in public. Take it to the tunnel or club house. I played on a team with a moron. Everytime he opened his yap I’d sit in the dugout with my head down & whisper to myself “Shut up! Nobody wants to hear your verbal diarrhea”. I wasn’t in charge of him or the rest of the team. If played dirty & would yell 4 letter words to the other team, have at it. Just like I was on the first link to this blog. Who looks like more of an idiot? Person yelling & swearing at everyone or the victims of a pathetic rant?

Friday, October 2nd! Don’t forget new Trivium & Clutch!!!!

I like “Islander” I’m not a huge fan, but I do like them. Brand new tune from them.


At this point I think ‘The Simpsons’ are trying to remain relevant.


‘The Strokes’ confirm they’re back in the studio. I heard one song when they were first in the public eye & decided they weren’t my taste in music.


Corey Taylor of Slipknot & Stone Sour will in a TV series


Courtney Love Cobain get’s snubbed from daughter’s wedding?


….did I disappoint you….” Yes there have been a few disappointing albums this year, for me.

Pentatonix shared it! New album October 16th!!!!!!!!!!!

Surf Dads in The Exchange Saturday, October 24th.


The full Ian Fletcher Thornley single. Album preorder October 2nd !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


37 years ago ‘Black Sabbath’ released “Never Say Die”


Mark Tremonti want’s clear the air about a “Creed” reunion. Please no. Wasted time from his band ‘Alter Bridge’ & his solo project, IMO.


New artist, Meg Myers. Halestorm shared her video!

On iTunes I see 2 albums, a single & an EP.

Latest album with this song on it. I always ask my boss aka Kim, if I can buy an album from iTunes no matter how much it costs. I’m pretty much on a limit/allowance or I’d likely go WAY overboard!!! I’m cheap, but when it comes to music, it’s a different game.


Songs I like. “Robbie Williams” I haven’t listened to him since, I don’t know when? Early 2000s” He was the “bad boy” in a boy band in the UK called “Take that”. Why do I know that? I have one album from 2000.

Give the site a moment to load all of the links. It takes a bit for my computer & it crashes on Kim’s cell.

Metal fans get a bad reputation because of the music we like. Not every metal fan or band member is a flat out metal head though. The metal musicians and fans are some of the kindest people I’ve met. I’m in a wheelchair. When I go to The Exchange to see a local metal band play, TONS of people stop & say hello, shake my hand, chat for a bit, help me out if needed, hold open a door, etc. Nobody goes out of their way to be harmful to anyone. There’s a bad seed in every crowd so I don’t necessarily hang around those people. The people I know that play or listen to aggressive music won’t judge you on what you listen to for music. They know others can instantly judge them by their metal music. I’m not afraid to tell anyone what I listen to. Here’s a few examples of what I listen to….

It’s subjective. A song does not have an influence as to who you are! You like it because you like it, so why hide it? The only music fans I’ve met who don’t consider their music offensive are country music fans. It doesn’t bother me, I do enjoy a small sampling of country music here & there. It’s a lot like extremely heavy metal. Good for a bit, but not for more than one album a day. Slayer is as offensive as a Southern twang country artist to me! Kim was listening to “The Help” audio book on the way to who knows where, too much twang for me. I’m not trying to rattle anyone’s cage in particular, these are just off the top of my head examples……

I did it! I watched “Silence of the Lambs” with Kim. I put on my big boy pants, sucked it up & just asked Kim to hold me when I got scared. I haven’t watched that movie in over a decade. It’s not that freaky of a movie, but when they show Anthony Hopkins in a straight jacket & the brown muzzle/mask, I pee a little then curl up into the fetal position. Anything with Anthony Hopkins in it gives me the HEEBIE JEEBIES now! Blue Jays play a late game tonight. I’ll likely sit through a sequel, then watch the game?

I’ll tell you right off the bat, I DON’T VOTE OR FOLLOW POLITICS OR & here’s why. I get a kick out of watching greasy scum bags doing commercials to “help” their campaign by telling you the opposition can’t do this or that. Whoever’s commercial it is will promise you the moon though. I have 0 desire to sift through the nonsense & ballyhoo as to who I’d vote for. When politicians can honestly tell me how & what they can do then I’ll consider voting? Here’s 2 examples of what I’ve seen right out of the gate……



Axl Rose loves the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles more than being on time for a concert! Hahahaha!


Pets, furry cuddly pets!


50 rock facts you might not know? Courtney Love was with “Faith No More” before they were famous?


Serj Tankian (System of a Down singer) turns 48 today! Happy Birthday! Now please get into the studio to record another SOAD album?


One Direction video. This likely the first time I’ve heard their music, unless they’ve been on Jimmy Fallon, Ellen Degeneres, or Conan O’Brien.


Pentatonix are just AWESOME! New video from them!

Alter Bridge shares it, here it is…..

Alice in Chains’ “Facelift” was released 25 years ago today


Finger Eleven tour dates. They have 2 dates in Saskatchewan! $45.00/ticket, WOW??????? I guess “One Thing made them huge??? That’s a lot of money to see a bar band??????


Stone Temple Pilots are touring in the USA, no word of a full length album with Chester Benninton. They released a video in January saying they were 95% done recording the album, so where is it?

That’s a big statement from a guy who just released a disappointing album. LANGUAGE!!!


Really? Already announcing a sequel to “Straight Outta Compton”



James Labrie (Dream Theater) did well for himself! This has to be fake?!

New “Duran Duran” song. Yes, they’re still alive?


Hard rock & metal stars from the ’80s, now & then.


Maybe “Poison” was an inspiration for this song?

Songs I like, “Obadiah Parker” I only have two 5 song EPs of cover songs

Pentatonix talk about their movie/documentary! This group is AWESOME!

I really like the new “Tremonti” album ‘Cauterize’! Metal guitar riffs, yet not super high notes or death vocals.

Live video so there is LANGUAGE!!

Another review of the album

I haven’t watched ‘The Simpsons’ since “grade 9”? They debuted when I was in grade 6.

This is/was AWESOME! Jimmy Fallon & Seth MacFarlande doing random impressions

Roger Waters enlists the aid of Tom Morello & Billy Corgan for benefit show

Royal Blood is just really awesome music. Hard rock band with a bass player & a drummer. I believe they both sing? WARNING FOR VIDEO BELOW, EXPLICIT CONTENT!!!

Foo Fighters have an idea for the next album. From now on each album will be a concept album/the future recordings will have a theme.

Good for you Courtney Love.

Lady Gaga joined a New York rock band?

I’ve never been a fan of “Rammstein” & I don’t see myself becoming a fan in the future. They lost me at “Du”.

Maybe let Kurt Cobain R.I.P., instead of re-investigating it?

Too much vinyl, San Diego store collapses from the weight of vinyl albums.

4 reasons why L.G.B.T. Pride month matters

Fair enough, with Pete Rose out of baseball (most hits in a career, over 4000), now if I hear of a steroid user getting in to the baseball Hall of Fame, that’s a very mixed, message! The single season home run record is still 61. Not 66, 70 or 77. This means no Sosa, McGuire, Bonds, Clemens, Alex Rodriguez, etc. There won’t be many inductions for players in the next few years, I hope? For me & possibly other baseball fans what the steroid users did is far worse than gambling on baseball. There’s a lot of players coming up for the Hall of Fame, which I hope means “YOU’RE GONE! YOU CHEATED!”

Songs I like. “John Mellencamp”

Why is EVERYTHING on Social Media? Everyone has an email but not everyone uses it for Facebook, twitter, instagram, etc. I’m on Facebook & email. Apparently that’s not enough? One of the bands I used to “follow” on Facebook said “Hey, join our twitter page”, why? I’m following you on facebook, is there more info on twitter that you’re not sharing on facebook? How about every web site join whatever social media site & just share links to whatever is on their web site? This blog isn’t touching any type of social media site. Why? BECAUSE NOT EVERYBODY IN THE WORLD IS ON A SOCIAL MEDIA SITE! I use my email to talk with friends who have working email address’, a few people don’t have that? I don’t plan to be on facebook in forever, if I do, it will only be because of the information on facebook. Facebook is very time consuming for me. I like to get up while Kim is getting ready for work, pour myself some fruit & vegetable juice, a coffee & some water. I come in here, start my blog post, exercise, have lunch, finish up my blog post around, then hit the couch to watch something Kim doesn’t care to watch or something on Netflix. Facebook fills my day at the moment. One notification down then 2 or 3 more pop up “in the meantime”.

Sequel to “Mallrats” will be “MallBrats” yes, I’m a big Kevin Smith fan!!!

Courtney Love is in some trouble………….again.

Courtney Love covers Al Green?


I haven’t watched “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” since 2007? When I did watch it, it was great though. Too bad he’s leaving it.


New I Mother Earth single!!! Streaming for free for a limited time on their website!


I’m pretty sure she meant Sonic the Hedgehog. lol


“10 Years” new video. Never heard of them before they sound OK though on this tune though.


Achtung Baby & The Joshua Tree are by far my 2 favourite U2 album out of how many of their albums!





I honestly didn’t know these groups were still making music?


This is the last I had heard of them?


Anyone remember Scott Weiland (former singer of Stone Temple Pilots & Velvet Revolver)


Alice Cooper is recording an album of cover songs! Expected to be released around September!!!

I don’t want to report on Kanye bashing anyone, especially Sir Paul McCartney!


Regina charity for sick kids could fold soon


There is no longer a big 4 of metal groups, always mentioned as the big 4. It is now the big 5. Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax, Slayer, & now Lamb of God! Just ask Slash.







Nobody really knows of Lamb of God, probably because it’s a small niche market unlike country music, which is a HUGE niche market at the moment & iTunes now, cheap/free music. I don’t like their first self titled album “Burn the Priest” they changed their name to Lamb of God afterwards. I have all 6 of their CDs as well as their 3 CD anthology. I believe they’re in the studio recording their 8th studio album. They aren’t rich & live in mansions. I believe the majority of their sales are from iTunes? They have toured all over the globe as headliners & opened for Metallica, Slayer & they’ve been a part of Gigantour put on by Megadeth. Regular guys from Richmond, Virginia who have sold millions of albums though on iTunes.

Vinyl records? I don’t have room for them & they skip or get scratched. Just like the pile of CDs in our closet? If I have to purchase vinyl I’ll rip them to iTunes, put them on my iPod & throw them away!


I do love this song though. I have the actual album it’s on & a 70’s compilation it’s on. On iTunes & my iPod

Dave Grohl is well known for stopping fights at Foo Fighters shows among Foo Fighters fans. WARNING!!!!


What did newly acquired catcher, Russell Martin have to say about the Toronto Blue Jays?


What did Jose Bautista have to say? I would say they didn’t do enough!


Bad news fatal car crash


I wonder why I don’t watch the news more than once a week? Probably because it’s usually full of bad news! I watched the CTV Regina news last night at 6:00pm & it sucked BIG time! The entire hour was full of road accidents, people dying, wars where ever, & other depressing stuff. For me I like to be informed with what’s happening in town. It’s full of bad news nothing good! How about a babies were born today, puppies & kittens were born today, some good news for a change! For me ignorance is bliss! If I want to hear or see that someone died or anything like that I’ll find a TV show or a movie to watch! The news is not for me.

Songs/Videos I like. I’m not a huge Aerosmith fan but they do have a bundle of great songs.

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 always open, for those who use Google Chrome web browser, on the website.

We we’re watching the local CTV news Monday night, they reported there was a debate going on about Regina having a strip club. I’ve never been to a strip club & have no desire to enter one. I say build it! If people want to go to it they will & it won’t affect the lives of those of us who don’t go. This could be a good thing, more jobs for more people, boost the economy, or it might tank & shut down. Just legalize a few of the hot topics at the moment. If the people want something, legalize it & see what happens in the following 2 years? Who knows/cares what happens. Let people make their own decisions if you agree with them or not. Obviously there are things that should remain illegal. But, why waste time & energy on stuff that doesn’t cause a stir for other people? I don’t vote because politicians seem to waste their time on petty little things & I don’t believe that will change. Do you want them to do whatever illegally or legally? Either way it’s likely gonna happen?

And the plot thickens between the 3 members of “Blink-182”

This is sort of impressive. Took way to long to happen though. Big Wrecks face book status.
“Big Wreck has been nominated for a Juno Award for ‘Best Rock Album’ for Ghosts”

The listening party from The Consequenceofsound.net reviewing Sleater-Kinney album.
The listening party review Foo Fighters Sonic Highways album. I like this album, they don’t a lot of people don’t. Oh, well.
Sonic highways would be in my top 5.5 albums of 8 studio albums “In Your Honor” was a double album. I like roughly 4/10 rock songs on it & all 10 acoustic songs on the 2nd CD. That’s my 0.5 album!

Here are a few of my favourite songs/videos.
