VERY DISAPPOINTING WEEKLY EXERCISE TOTAL/CRASH TEST DUMMIES

No such thing as a stupid question!  Feel free to ask me on Facebook or the website!

www.youtube.com links are there for a point of reference if you don’t know what I’m talking about.

Do you have a question about stage 4 brain cancer?  Ask if you do!

5 day exercise total; 250 leg lifts, 300 crunches, 200 squats, 100 back flexes, 00 pushups, 00 curls (10 pounds on left arm & 7 pounds on right arm), 00 tricep lifts w/5 pound weight, 00 shoulder raises w/5 pound weight,  stretching, & yoga.

I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the first album “Foo Fighters” from 1995, followed by “Norah Jones” the album “Feels Like Home”

 

No sleep again last night.  Thunder & lightning outside with a heavy rain, Brewster was freaking out hard in the middle of the night.  Kim & I were both up trying to calm him down for about an hour or more.

I’ve been EXTREMELY tired all week.  Wednesday I had breakfast, exercised, posted a blog, grabbed a piece of fruit & fell asleep on the couch at 12:00 until 2:45 pm.  Then showered & tried to feel somewhat accomplished for the day on Wednesday.  In the end, I should have just stayed in bed.  I had this problem in the Wascana Rehabilitation Program before, it was because of depression, and this isn’t.  I forgot to take my pills Sunday night & staying up late because of that really messes with my sleep.  I’ve been grumpy & tired all week, that’s why my exercise total is so low this week.

I shouldn’t have even tried to exercise on Wednesday.  My muscles didn’t fully activate & I’ve had odd aches I’ve never had before.

I could worry about this past week & make it far worse in my head, or I could just move on.  I choose to move on, be disappointed for a minimal amount of time, get over it & carry on.  I’ll take it as a learning experience & do better next week.  I can’t change what has already happened.

I like to think of myself as normal as any able bodied person, but I’m not.  Cleaning, doing dishes, & just rushing around the house is actually much harder on me than I remember it being.  Now just doing one extra chore burns me out to the point I’m sweating & out of breath.  Even on the weekends with nothing going on!  Missing my pills for one evening took me down for almost a complete work week.

People say I exercise a TON.   I don’t see it as too much.  If everyone didn’t have a job, kids or both, I guarantee everyone could do this & more if they were in my age group.

I’ll have to do some major stretching today & fire it up next week.

 

 

I got a new (3rd single) from the upcoming “Alter Bridge” album last on Thursday.

What else am I looking forward to?  In one week we’ll all be given a new “Tool” album after more than 13 years.  Also a brand new “Big Wreck” album!  YAY!!!!!!!!!!!

A big reason that I won’t touch “Spotify”.  I’ll see a Facebook post from any band I follow that goes something like this “Hey, we just added this song ______ to Spotify”.  The problem for me is that I like to listen to a full album all at once.  That song the band just added to Spotify.  I got that song from Apple Music/iTunes 6 months ago.  That’s just how I prefer to listen to my music.

I think “Sony” & “Disney” could end up both being HUGE losers in this “Spider-man” deal.  Hardcore comic book fans can be vicious when provoked.  Imagine billions of “Dr. Sheldon Cooper” like people coming at you & telling you how many times you’ve been wrong & how you’ve been wrong.  All in all it will be a minor loss in finances for both companies if this ends up the way I think it will, let’s watch!

As of this morning there’s been enough bad reaction from fans that there’s a rumour regarding a new deal between Sony & Disney!  Hahahahahaha!  Remember this is still just a rumour!

 

CRASH TEST DUMMIES

Another really good band out of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.  This is that band with the guy who has a deep voice.  He controls his voice very well & has more range than you’d think.  I have their 3 first albums & the “Dumb & Dumber” soundtrack with a song that launched them into the stratosphere!  We’ll start with that song….

 

1991   THE GHOSTS THAT HAUNT ME

 

1993   GOD SHUFFLED HIS FEET

 

1996   A WORM’S LIFE

MONDAYS ARE DIFFICULT!

SURPRISE! PLANS CHANGED! The internet was fairly quiet today, so here it is.

I fell asleep to “Scream”the album “Fumble”

Yes, that’s a young Dave Grohl. “Scream” is the group he dropped out of high school for & was a member of right before he joined “Nirvana”.

I know I said I wasn’t going to do a post today. My wheelchair was supposed to go in for a cleaning & some minor repair work. The second I woke up my stomach was doing some weird stuff? I felt sick. Thought I’d have a bucket beside me all day? I feel fine & I’ve had breakfast that stayed down. Kim called the company for my chair & canceled the appointment for my chair to go in. Better off safe than “sorry”. I’ve got my chair & I feel fine. I guess we’ll schedule it for another day. I’m leary about working out today though, just in case…better to be safe than covered in vomit.

That short time of 2 or 3 days off really makes my muscles sore. After 200 crunches, then things feel OK. I do my squats, 70 leg lifts on my back, then crunches. Followed by 70 leg lifts on my hands & knees, then the push ups that just about kill me. Squats & push ups are by far the most challenging things I do. Squats leave me breathless for a few minutes & push ups are always last or else I don’t have the energy left to do anything else.

Professional sports don’t have a gay problem. The straight individuals in charge have a problem! They can’t accept that not everyone is the same. Yet, somehow Ty Cobb was a notorious jerk, also known for violence and robbery. Yet he’s in the baseball Hall of Fame?

Music rip offs

Another suggestion from a reader. I looked them up & Chevelle was recommended, I’d say that’s a pretty good comparison. “Stellar Circuits” one 5 song EP & 2 singles on iTunes. I haven’t bought anything, but I might?

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver…………………& this is why Quebec won’t abandon Canada. It’s like opening a can of worms. Quebec is a big part of being Canadian!

LAGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alter Bridge shared it……………..new album in September I hear?

I got Batman vs. Superman last night from iTunes since they had the “Ultimate Edition” I was planning on buying, available on blu-ray & DVD July 19th and also for renting on iTunes that day.

The Pretty Reckless shared the iTunes link to this album…

https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/going-to-hell/id1114229616

YESTERDAY GOT AWAY FROM ME

I fell asleep to “Walk off the Earth” the album “Sing it all Away” woke up in the middle because I’m either getting old, turning into a woman or my bladder shrunk. Went to bed & listened to “The Traveling Wilburys” their only album Tom Petty, Roy Orbison, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, & Bob Dylan!

I exercised to “Crash Test Dummies” the album “God Shuffled His Feet”

I think “Crash Test Dummies” were at The Exchange in the last few years? I didn’t go, I didn’t even know they were still around. I only have their first 3 CDs.

Kim has been sanding some wooden boards we have as shelves. Our place is covered in dust. She got them from a relative I believe, but they warped, they’re solid pine shelves about 8′ long. Messy place here at the moment. I think it might be what is making me cough up phlegm every morning & today was the same with a dash of a sore throat added.

Yes, this is on both Facebook or old school email for subscription!

Missed it by that much. Right decade for me, just the wrong music! I wanted the “grunge” of the ’90s to come back, not this.

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/salt-n-pepa-vanilla-ice-to-headline-i-love-the-90s-tour-20160329

Yeah, that sounds completely different than Queen…………..NOT!

Here’s to their earlier success……………….I hope!

Kongos preorder is April 15th

This has nothing to do with “Disturbed”! If you’re a parent you should know better than to use your phone in a public setting featuring any type of show. Do you need to post anything at that time? Do you use your phone once the light dims in a movie theater? Put your phone away for a few hours & enjoy whatever entertainment you have paid for. Was it a life or death situation she was dealing with? NO! Put your phone away! You wont die & the pictures will still be there after the show. It’s called etiquette……………..take a refresher course!!!!!

LANGUAGE BUT IT MAKES SENSE!!!!!

If you missed James Corden’s prime time carpool karaoke special, here’s a portion of it. This was a new carpool karaoke segment! He’s the guy that took over Craig Ferguson’s show & changed it radically. I find it to be much better, but that’s just me.

A PILE of photos of “Chevelle” hard at work in the studio recording their next album

“Walk off the Earth” shared it…….

They were here earlier this week or opening for “Mariana’s Trench” who I’ve never heard a song by, but I’ve heard the name in passing. Apparently the majority of concert goers said it should have been “Mariana’s Trench” opening for “Walk off the Earth”. If that had been the case, I would have seen if Kim & I could go to that after seeing “The Watchmen” on Friday

Yay, Mark Tremonti’s going on tour……………………in Europe………………….again. Once he’s done recording the new “Alter Bridge” album by the end of April. I think he & Myles Kennedy need a break? Myles is the singer for both “Slash” & “Alter Bridge” he’s also doing a solo album since 2012 in his little window of spare time. Mark Tremonti is doing his solo project as well as “Alter Bridge”

Some very cool dough art as a tribute to “Soundgarden’s” album “Badmotorfinger”

Rolling Stone’s 100 greatest drummers of all time

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/lists/100-greatest-drummers-of-all-time-20160331

It’s subjective. Meg White (White Stripes) made the list but not Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater)???? Heck, before cancer I could & have played drums to a White Stripes song.

I listened to Dream Theater on my iPod at work this album, Systematic Chaos then a double album of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s greatest hits. That was roughly 7 hours of my day at work. 1 ear bud in & noise canceling headphones on, then an hour of noise canceling headphones & nothing else.

Little kids covering “Glorious Sons”, shared by Glorious Sons….

OK, Guns n’ Roses fans it’s coming & it could be tomorrow or on April 8th…………………..

“Royal Blood” shared it! I was just as excited to see them live as I was Foo Fighters last summer in Calgary. That’s saying a lot, they were both really good!

I don’t think Trump ever thinks before he speaks? He has no filter!

http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/donald-trumps-abortion-comments-make-perfect-sense-20160331

I’m not into politics at all. I can’t wait for the USA campaign to be over………………in November. Canadians can’t vote but what’s on every day at least once a day on every channel? The Presidential campaign. If they haven’t decided by now, what are they waiting for? A light to shine on who to vote for by God?

I’ve got to cut this short today. The stronger I get, the more chores I can tend to!

Yes, music in schools should always be encourage. It is the universal language & it is mentally stimulating! (Well look at me & my big words). Campbell Collegiate is/was well known for having 1 of the best music programs for high school for western Canada. At least when I was there in the ’90s.

These songs are from the number 1 album on the website, I would have to agree with the number 1 album. Ahh the ’90s….& “grunge” music!! I was 13 when this album was released. Dang it I’m old.

^^Almost makes me want to play video games again. I’m dreadfully terrible at video games. Sport games or “God of War” I was decent at though. “Turtles in Time” for SNES I finished, it was pretty easy.

Hayley William of Paramore has a trailer for a new TV series.

Kim has my “Kryptonite” in the freezer. Ben & Jerry’s “Half Baked”! I haven’t touched it though in the 3 days it’s been here. Right beside my tortilla wraps that I have with chicken & sun dried tomatoes.

When my iPod Classic 160gb dies I’m done with my iPod. I listen to my iTunes through the home stereo. Apple doesn’t need my money. I’m not paying more for less space on a hard drive on an iPod touch. I don’t want an MP3 player that does everything but a cell phone. I don’t take pictures of people because I don’t like to be photographed. So when it dies, I’m out.

I hit another mini milestone today during my exercising. I finally broke a sweat today. 20+ push ups, planking, better yoga today than ever & 300 crunches in set’s of 50.

I got a really good comment from one of my nurses at Wascana. “You look happy…”. I am very happy & I’ve been screwing up my “medication” this week. I haven’t been taking the wrong pills at the wrong time. I haven’t had my happy pills the last 3 days.

Songs I like. “Crash Test Dummies”

This is on the first Dumb & Dumber soundtrack

I haven’t listened to the 3 albums I have of theirs in decades but when they were released on CD, I listened to them a TON!
