WEEKLY EXERCISE TOTAL      

This felt like a very long week.  I was thinking Wednesday was Friday, man was I wrong!

I fell asleep to “Royal Blood” their debut self-titled album, then “Nothing but Thieves” then “In Flames” the live album “The Tokyo Showdown”  I kept waking up throughout the night, just listening to “In Flames” the album “Siren Charms”, then finally “Sounds of a Playground Fading”

LANGUAGE IN A FEW OF THESE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I exercised to “Chevelle” the album “The North Corridor”, too short for my exercise.  I then put on “Lamb of God” the album “Sturm und Drang”

The numbers are a bit off this week.  I was trying out a few things but I’ve got it now. 7500 crunches, 490 squats, 390 pushups, 350 leg lifts

 

100 squats, 1500 crunches, 70 leg lifts & 80 pushups every day, 5 days a week.  I’d like to see 150 pushups a day. It may take a while but I’ll get there eventually.

 

I alternate the leg lifts.  3 days of 70 leg lifts on my back & 2 days of 70 leg lifts on my hands and knees.  Then I’ll switch it the next week to 3 days on my hands & knees, then 2 days on my back.

 

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.  Does anyone ever talk to their own Doctor or does everyone trust celebrities more?  What does Jenny McCarthy think of vaccinations?  What does Dr. Oz think about this pill?….etc.  If the celebrities you trust all held hands and jumped off of a tall bridge, would you?

 

Walk off the Earth have made 13 singles/cover songs.  I put them all on 1 album on my iPod!

 

Big Wreck shared it….

 

I miss Foo Fighters & Queens of the Stone Age

I should listen to this stuff more often.

 

In Flames live…..

 

New band alert “Seasons After”.  I’m not preordering this.  I’m going to wait for it’s full release & make my decision then, since I’ve never heard of them.

I guess they have 2 full length albums out on iTunes?  If I’m not sure about purchasing an album on iTunes, I’ll either let it simmer for a while, ask my brother what he thinks or check out a band on Apple Music.

 

OK, let me explain the “Sum 41” preorder.  On their last album they didn’t play watered down punk music for the masses.  It was more of a hard rock album.  The single from the upcoming release sounds like more of a hard rock sound also.

 

Pentatonix & Dolly Parton sing the song “Jolene”

 

Alter Bridge “Show me a Leader” acoustic

 

From “Fall Out Boy”

“Growing up the things that informed my life and me the most were experiential. These were the moments that you could live inside. I remember there was a summer where guns n’ roses, terminator 2 and slalom water skiing all met up in my head. It was relentless in the way I thought about them and the way they commingled with each other. I can remember that summer and still in some ways go back and live inside of it because of the way it was so experiential and transformative for me. There is a texture to it. Like pop culture was curated by some force that summer for me personally… BLOOM is meant to be an experiential idea- one that started as a conversation between us and bobby hundreds… just an idea. then it became a short film about how you can empower yourself, how falling/failing can make you stronger… but that conversation became bigger and we realized that we could create a film, stage uniforms, stage look, show design, and merchandise and have them all inform each other. So that we could make a moment that would be different than all the moments before it and after it- that you could take with you as a texture. In so many ways it is amazing the dialogue we can have and the art we can create and share with each other now. I love seeing the fan art from to shows and movies I love… it’s that conversation that wasn’t truly possible in that summer to me- that’s what I appreciate most about now. So if you are reading this, you are part of BLOOM.

Sometimes you have to crack the pavement before you can BLOOM.

I’d have to go with “Alter Bridge”

OK? No point in lashing out about it, it wont solve anything it’s done, it happened & it’s over, be angry if you want for half an hour. You likely won’t remember this in 3 weeks.

I was the idiot who pretty much blasted whoever that was different from me. That’s not right! Will I remember having cancer in 20 years, sure. Will it be a huge problem? No! I work out to change my situation. Nobody gave me cancer. Do I like what happened? Of course not. So I’ll try to fix it MY WAY! Friends & family support are always welcome, but only I can make a difference for me! In other words “Hold my beer & watch this!!!!” This entire ordeal could be an epic fail video on www.youtube.com

Oh, do I love me some Prince!

TEACH ME PLEASE?

I really would like this to be conversation between myself & the readers. I’m telling you my story of the music I like, now you tell me what you’re into? I’m not about to judge anyone on their listening choices, that would be weird coming from a music fan. Please, let’s make this interactive, in a good way? If I haven’t checked it out or mentioned it on here, teach me please?

I’m going to watch “Blue Jays in 0:30 minutes”. I MUCH prefer watching a 3 hour pitching dual where the score is 1 or 2-0. For me it has to be really close & low scoring or a total blow-out for one team! They lost……………………..again.

iTunes Match, “….thanks, that was fun….” now were leaving you in the dust like MANY others are! Home Sharing for us now!

Not much going on in the music side of things today. Our 12.5lbs dog is driving me crazy today. It’s been cloudy all day, it’s raining & he heard thunder earlier. In other words he’s been panting & shaking like a leaf for most of the day. Kim deals with him throughout the night, then I deal with him all day. He’s been this way for quite a few weeks now? I think he’s getting old fast. He mostly lays at the door, scratching it & whining.

We had a noise complaint about him early on last year when we both went out one day & forgot to leave the TV on for Brewster. Since then we haven’t left him alone. We take him to my parents house, Mitch & Rachel’s place, or Sherry & James’ house. We pretty much have to get a sitter for our dog? He seems to be getting worse with age, he wasn’t like this 3 weeks ago? He’s on anxiety pills now, they aren’t helping & he’s been on them long enough to have them in his system.

Songs I like. “Megadeth”
