EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL

I fell asleep to “Third Ion” the new album I grabbed last night on iTunes “Biolith”. Different time signatures all over the place! The type of album that makes you think, in a good way. There’s piano on at least one song. You don’t usually hear that on a “metal” album! It’s not a full on metal album to me, it’s just good.

I exercised to “Chevelle” the other album I grabbed last night “The North Corridor”, then “Chevelle” the album “Hats Off To The Bull”

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

Exercise total; 7500 crunches, 700 leg lifts, 400 squats, 295 push ups.

1500 crunches,140 leg lifts, 80 squats, & now 60 push ups 5 days a week. Push ups started to increase this week so Monday was a little off 55 instead of 60. I thought about it & figured out to do 3 sets of 20 push ups instead of 2 sets of 25, much easier than 25 at a time. Squat total might rise? Push ups will definitely rise later on.

Pop culture news….

Why are Marvel characters becoming DC characters? Isn’t The Flash, Avengers, & Spiderman all Marvel comic characters? Why was The Flash briefly in Batman vs. Superman? Why is the TV show “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” full of Marvel characters? Did I miss the news that DC comics have bought the rights to the Marvel universe?

A TON of these characters were in the TV show “The Flash” by Marvel comics but a different actor in the Batman vs. Superman movie will likely have a spinoff movie of the Flash? Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, etc. are all DC comic characters.

So the Flash must have ran so fast that there is still one port hole open to another universe , that a PILE of Marvel characters ran through & joined DC comics. I guess there was 50 breaches/port holes open last season on the TV series. I know just enough to get me in trouble, but not enough to get me out of trouble!

I’m not a huge comic book fan. I do really like “The Flash”, “Gotham”, “Supergirl”, & any stand alone/full blown “Avengers” movie. I guess I am a fan of science fiction? I like the “Star Wars” movies & “The Hobbit/Lord of the Rings” movies.

My dad watched the original “Star Wars” trilogy with me as a child. I’ve been hooked ever since!

I’ll bite! For me it’s all of them! The 2 newest albums are a little disappointing.

Review of the new Chevelle album

I put my underwear on backwards yesterday. I thought to myself “WOO, I’ve lost weight, but not where I wanted to”! I then realized my underwear was backwards & fixed it.

CONCERT VENUES

I fell asleep to “Chevelle” the album “La Gargola”

I exercised to “Megadeth” the new album released today “Dystopia”

This weeks exercise total is 110 push ups, 840 crunches, ½ hour of yoga, 120 squats, 800 meters of walking w/ Kim & my walker 200 one day, 600 Thursday (no rest periods), 40 leg lifts on my hands & knees also 40 on my back! As I look at that, even I’m impressed?!

The arena in Regina holds 7,129 for concerts (including the floor area). Saskatoon’s arena holds 15,195 (not including the floor) 2.5 hours north of Regina. Moose Jaw’s arena holds 5,000+ including the floor, 45 minutes west of Regina!

Motley Crue with opener Big Wreck went on tour last year & when they came to Saskatchewan they played in Moose Jaw. Why? I’m sure they could draw a much larger audience, go to Saskatoon if there is no event planned for that day? I’ve been to Saskatoon more than I care to count. Regina’s arena does not sound good with a musical act. We saw “Ed Sheeran” last year here in Regina. It’s him playing acoustic guitar & a digital foot pedal to fill out the “band”. The second he turned the foot pedal on the sound was VERY distorted in an awful way. The arena in Regina is well known for bad sound at a concert. Regina’s the Capital of Saskatchewan, but to see a big name act we either drive out of the Province to Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg or in the Province to Saskatoon, or now Moose Jaw. We have few smaller venues with capacity of 300-1000. I haven’t been to Moose Jaw’s arena, but the drive to Saskatoon is getting really old!

Lamb of God” shared it….

This could go 2 ways. People will watch it because of Marilyn Manson doing a guest appearance or they’ll get negative fast & boycott whatever he’s involved in? Any publicity is good publicity, at least people will talk about him & the show. Heck, I’m talking about him now, you’re welcome Eminem aka M & M! Anyone else craving peanuts & chocolate?

Iggy Pop & Josh Homme make their debut on Stephen Colbert show. “Post Pop Depression”

Did anyone watch “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” yesterday? I thought it would be characters from the DC comics like, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, etc. It was all Marvel characters that have been on “The Flash” or “Arrow”. I didn’t watch the entire show, I was expecting something different? As for comic series I only watch “The Flash” & “Gotham”. I really like “The Flash”

Post Pop Depression” out March 18th

I guess Nikki Sixx isn’t done with music yet? “Sixx A.M.” announce permanent drummer.
