I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “Silence in the Snow” followed by “In Flames” the album “Sounds of a Playground Fading”

 

I exercised to “Slipknot” the album “5 The Gray Chapter”

 

500 crunches, 500 leg lifts, 375 pushups, 200 back flexes, & 25 minutes of planking.

That’s 100 crunches, 100 leg lifts, 75 pushups, 40 back flexes, & 5 minutes of planking each working day.

I think I figured out a portion, maybe all about a re-occurring dream I’ve been having since I was in the WRC.

I continually dream that I’m late for high school & I have an English paper that’s WAY overdue.  I get to school & have no clue as to what my locker combination is.

In University in 1999 my grandmother died of breast cancer.  I was a mess at the time.  I skipped out on an English final & drove to Moose Jaw & back instead.  With the 3rd Foo Fighters’ album that had just been released in November blasting the entire time.  My grandmother passed away on December 5th, 1999.

I guess that dream is more about me having some type of unfinished business to deal with?  Maybe it’s nothing & I’m reading too much into it?

No Trump talk!  You know what I think about him & you’re entitled to your own take on him!  I have never & will never condone violence to ANYONE.  If I thought it would change anything I’d give Trump a slap upside the head.

I’m typically not a political person.  Canadian politics bore me & I choose not to vote.  If I lived in the USA that would be different.  I watch too much CNN, since watching Trump lead the USA is much like his campaign x 100.

 

THAT’S ALL FOR THE CANCER TALK FOR NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

It’s August, there’s very little music being released & not much for music news but here’s what I could find.

 

Audio interview with Chris Adler, drummer for Lamb of God.

 

Audio interview with Corey Taylor, singer for Stone Sour & Slipknot.

 

Audio interview with Royal Blood.

 

 

Poor camera man!  Kim & I just laughed & laughed & laughed………..

 

When I was working, I’d listen to my iPod a double album of “Lynyrd Skynyrd” their Greatest Hits & “Systematic Chaos” by Dream Theater, or the odd podcast.  One ear bud in my right ear, other one down my shirt.  Noise cancelling headphones on.  Those 2 albums would pretty much last my 8 hour shift.

 

A 2nd song from Jack Johnson!!!!!

 

A PBS concert\documentary regarding Foo Fighters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/foo-fighters-rock-the-acropolis-in-landmarks-live-trailer-w498301

 

Jimmy Kimmel reads mean tweets from Trump supporters.

http://www.rollingstone.com/tv/news/jimmy-kimmel-reads-mean-tweets-from-angry-trump-supporters-w498287

 

Jose Bautista is too old to be the face of the franchise, he’ll probably ask for too much next year whoever he signs with & he’s a whiner.  Have fun on the Free Agent market at the end of the year, if you’re still with the Blue Jays at the end of August.

If Jose Bautista can hit 30 home runs this year, I still don’t think I’d renew his contract of $18,000,000.  Troy Tulowitzki & Jose Bautista would be the first of many players I’d try to dump on whoever wants to pay for a name.  Right there is $38,000,000 off the books of players not living up to their contracts!

 

My album of the year for whatever year it was, was “Nothing but Thieves” self-titled debut album.  Their 2nd album is being released on September 8th this year & here are the 3 singles they have released thus far…

It’s not close to hard rock, rock, or metal.  Lots of people my age & younger will not like this group.  I’m OK with that, for any music I listen to, I never said you had to like it.

August 25th new Queens of the Stone Age, September 8th Nothing But Thieves, Alter Bridge anthology, & Jack Johnson, September 15th Foo Fighters.  After that, who knows?

I fell asleep to “Radiohead” the album “OK Computer” followed by “Lamb of God” the album “Sacrament”

Don’t feel as though you need to open every link.

I hope you all have fun tonight & get home safe!  No drinks for me.  I’m on some powerful muscle relaxants for my annoying nerve.  A few days after I was in the WRC they put on a “happy hour” for the residents.  I went to it.  I’m on multiple pills 3 times a day & I’m not supposed to drink then they turn around & have one of the nurse’s hand out 2 free drinks to anyone?  Holy mixed messages Batman? I don’t remember if I was able to drink anything at the time.  I couldn’t drink anything for quite a while.  My water & food came through IV for a few years.  My IV was full of a liquid called TPN.  I think it was 2010 that I was able to drink through a straw.  Even beer.  You don’t see that “every day”.

Yeah, I saw my chiropractor yesterday.  My dad took me.  I left here before 2:00 pm, then stayed at my parents’ house until after supper.  Kim had a hair appointment & wasn’t going to be home until 8:00pm or so.  Mom sent home some supper for her.

The chiropractor said it moved really well yesterday, & first did a lot of work on my ribs that had moved.  It feels REALLY good now.  He told me to gradually work into a not so demanding exercise & to keep up with my stretches.  So I did today.  Stretches, 100 crunches & 20 pushups.  As far as the leg exercises go, I plan to do them once everything feels 100% better.  Better safe than sorry.

My routine at the moment is slightly wonky, with my nerve being stubborn.  I get up & get ready at 7:00am.  By the time I do that, & pour a cup of coffee it’s near 7:30.  I watch 2 of the 3 late night talk shows I record, then CNN…………….& I laugh about not having a leader who thinks he can do whatever he wants.  I think I see Sean Spicer flapping his lips, trying to spin a quote from Trump, more often than I see Kim?  I can just imagine how he feels when his alarm goes off.  “Ah, what am I gonna have to spin today.  Wait I’ll check twitter”

The “Radiohead” album “OK Computer” is & always has been considered one of the most important albums of all time.  The really cool thing was they wrote it while on tour for the album “The Bends” in the late 1990s & Foo Fighters were opening for them.  Foo Fighters would do a 10:00 minute sound check, then Radiohead would do a 2 hour sound check arguing about how to arrange the songs.  Go to 15:12 in the video to hear FF drummer Taylor Hawkins talk about opening for Supergrass & Radiohead way back when.

I’ll have to gradually increase my exercise.  1000 crunches so 200 a day.  300 leg lifts, 60/day.  150 stretching pushups, 30/day.  200 calf raises, 40/day.  I haven’t done squats or pushups yet.  I would rather wait until my nerve pain is completely gone.  We walk, but only in our suite, my foot tingles if I’m standing for too long.  So at the moment we’ve hit pause on waking in the parkade.

I’m aiming for 500 squats, pushups, & leg lifts a week & 7000 crunches a week.  That’s only 1400 crunches a day.  I was doing 1500 a day, I’m sure 1400 isn’t out of the question.  I’ll have to increase everything gradually though.  I was walking 800 meters with my walker & Kim once a week, I’ll likely have to slowly increase that as well.  This nerve pain is almost gone, when it is I’ll get back to reality.

I fell asleep to “Ascot Royals” everything on their 2 albums.

I exercised to “Big Wreck” all of it on shuffle.

Yes, I saw “Ascot Royals” open for “Big Wreck” last night at the casino.  AWESOME show.  I started listening to “Ascot Royals” last week & they’re AWESOME live as well as recorded.

I’ve never came out of a “Big Wreck” concert disappointed.  They’re not hard rock or metal, just straight up rock music, same with “Ascot Royals”.  Dave & Liz came with my dad & I.  Yes, my dad & I will have to call each other if we’re meeting in public.  He’s seen Foo Fighters 3 times & Big Wreck twice & we both get T-Shirts.  Can’t be out in public wearing the same shirt……………fashion faux pas!

I think last night was my 12 or 15th time seeing Big Wreck?  Their 1st album was released in ’97 I was only 17 & underage to see them in a bar.  When I turned 19, they were here 3 or 4 times a year & I never missed a show.  They broke up in 2002 after recording their 2nd album.  They reunited in 2012, & have released a total of 5 studio albums & a live EP with a cover song.

If “Big Wreck” is in Regina, I’m there.

It was nice to see that I’m not the only person who disapproves of cell phones at a concert.  Lead singer, Ian Thornley, had 4 or 5 people in front of him, right at the stage.  They all had their smartphones with them taking selfies & videos.  Between songs he addressed them.  He basically said to please put their phones away because the band sees them & then they “act” instead of playing music for people.  “Do my pants make me look weird?  This side’s my better side.  Gotta smile for the camera, etc.”  I guess they missed the announcement before the show?  “Here’s a song pre-smart phone” is how he introduced the next tune from their first album released in 1997.  The fans put their phones away & everything was good.

You turn off your phone at a movie theater, you smoke outside everywhere.  Why is this cell phone thing so hard?  We were in the balcony & it wasn’t a problem up there.

 

It’s here “The Pretty Reckless” video for “Oh my God”

 

Don’t ask me why?  This song has been stuck in my head for quite a while?

All of my music info came from; first my parents, then radio, then Much Music, always from like minded friends, then I got into metal a little over a decade ago, & now it’s all from facebook. I rarely listen to the radio, for a few reasons. I flip on the rock radio station & I either own it or don’t like it. That & isn’t FM radio supposed to play/advertise a new song or album? I don’t need to hear “Tom Sawyer” by Rush from the 1970s for the 4th time today ( I wish I was joking but somebody at the station must REALLY like that song)

I’ll be sitting in our vehicle somewhere Kim has to run in, & I’ll flip through 3 FM stations & usually turn it off after a total of 10 seconds. If I find something I like, it’s usually on the soft rock station or Jack FM where they truly do play everything. I probably own it, but haven’t listened to it in a while & it urges me to listen to an album when I get home!

All I can tell you is that Paramore’s Facebook page is very active with studio photos!!!!!!

Ben Affleck knew you hated him being cast as Batman. The movie exceeded my expectations! I loved the Christian Bale Batman trilogy! I’d say this is darker and easily lives up to the hype! Out on iTunes for purchase June 28th. Available in store on DVD or Blu-ray in July.

I wrote all of this but the stuff I listened to at the top of this post. It’s now 12:30pm. I’m becoming a fantastic procrastinator! Not a good thing at all. I had lunch after my exercises & listened to the most recent release from “Lacuna Coil” the album “Delirium”.

Brewster is at the groomers right now. He had an appointment at 7:00 am, and yes I got up at the same time Kim got up to get in the shower to take him to the groomers. He gets so excited if we say “Sara”, his groomer’s name. Weird guy LOVES getting a hair cut? I’ve never seen a dog so excited for a trim?

I’m really getting tired of Facebook for 2 reasons. Everybody has an opinion & I get that not everyone has the same opinion as the next person. Seems as though Facebook is the new way lots of people like to pick an argument about someone they have never met in person & have a different opinion. People were complaining about a “Pearl Jam” concert being canceled because the law changed in that state & “Pearl Jam” followed suit & canceled the show as many other bands did. The law was against the LGBT community. I said “Hey, it’s a concert that was canceled for a reason. If you don’t like that the show was canceled, stop harping on the band. Talk to someone in the Government about the new law”. Then random people complain about my opinion. I can’t change the law, I live in a different country! What did I do, & why are they whining & complaining to me?

Candice, who I met in University through her now husband Rydell, was getting heat for the fiasco of a child that was in a Gorilla exhibit. Everybody was outraged that the Gorilla was shot? What, they’d prefer if the child was shot instead? I have nothing against any animal, but REALLY?!?! Give your head a shake?

Now we have the shooting in Orlando. All of the gun loving Americans would probably say ”Well, if those gays had a gun on them this type of thing wouldn’t have happened”. It happened. Why did the idiot who did this have a gun in the first place? “Well, you can’t tell if someone will mentally snap after they purchase a gun”? Who the heck needs an AK-47? Unless you’re in the military or police force on duty, you shouldn’t need or own one. If you live in America, they’ll sell a gun to any John or Jane Doe that has the money. If the shooter didn’t have a gun none of this would have happened!

Yeah, the shooter was American, apparently a member of ISIS, & Islam! In that case he’s just as different as the rest of us in that he was all of those things & an extremist

Terrorist attack in Paris.

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/eagles-of-death-metal-paris-explosion-20151113

I guess it doesn’t matter where you live…………….no one’s truly “safe”! None of this was even thought of in the early 1990s, now there’s stuff like this all of the time. I don’t know when so many people snapped & thought killing people was cool?

“Eagles of Death Metal” lost their merchandise vendor, due to the attacks in Paris

http://loudwire.com/nick-alexander-eagles-of-death-metal-merch-guy-dies-paris-terrorist-attack/

I do music stuff, but let’s talk about whoever was responsible for the attacks in Paris. Does nobody have an inner voice of reason, or just voices in their head saying “Kill, hurt, destruct EVERYTHING & EVERYBODY”? Why do it in the first place?

They’re gonna kill hundreds of people & likely get caught or kill themselves? If they want to die, what good is it taking innocent people with you?

It feels now like I need to wear bullet proof everything before I leave my house? I was born in 1980, I’d never heard the words ISIS or Al Queda? Even my spell check doesn’t know the word “Queda”?!? This is one screwed up world! I’m not even safe in my own home? You stay in your country & do your thing, I’ll be here doing my thing. A Jihad/Holy War? This isn’t a “Holy War”? It’s just a stupid war that won’t solve anything you’ve set out to prove! Killing hundreds/thousands of innocent people is dumb & useless!

Saturday we spent the day with Corey & Jolene’s cute kiddo 2 year old Hannah! Paint, colouring, stickers, snack & a nap. Then baking cookies with “Auntie” Kim, followed by pizza for supper with Jolene here. The nap was for Hannah, not Kim or I. All I hear in my head now is Elmo’s voice.

Even SNL weighed in on the attacks on Paris. This could become an every week opening at the rate this world is going? Sounds like a near future WW3 possibly in the near future?

THIS WEEK FELT LIKE A MONTH TO ME!!

The most anticipated regular season baseball 4 game series between the Blue Jays & Yankees in New York was rained out last night. I was looking forward to planting my butt on the couch to watch the first of 4 games. It’s been postponed until tonight, then a double header on Saturday. We’ll see if it happens tonight, the forecast in New York doesn’t look good as the play by play announcers said.

Kim’s been sick, she’s been home Wednesday, Thursday & today. Everywhere I look there’s phlegm, phlegm, phlegm, phlegm, phlegm, etc. I think our tissue box is near empty. When either one of us goes down, we both do. I went down for 4.5 years & took Kim with me. When she’s sick, I have to step up my game!

We sat on the couch to binge watch Scandal on Netflix. We started it on Monday & we’re about half way through the 2nd season. Ellen Degeneres was right on the money with that show, not because Portia is on it later on, but because it’s so good! We’re watching it some more today.

Kim’s getting better. I guess we’ll see if she’s up for celebrating a friend’s birthday tomorrow?

On Wednesday evening I came in to write the Thursday no blog thing, I open my internet browser & already there was a youtube video of the shootings?!?!? Did I watch it? HELL NO! Remember dignity, respect, & mourning? Today’s society completely abandoned it. No I’m not perfect but whoever threw that video on youtube is way more screwed up than me.

Pearl Jam to record new album in 2016. I hope it’s better than “Lightning Bolt”, which isn’t terrible, but it sticks out like a sore thumb in their catalogue.

A storms a brewin’ between Miley Cyrus & Nicki Minaj. I don’t listen or really pay any attention to them. Nicki Minaj seems to be mentioned in the media quite often? She’s either difficult to deal with or knows how to promote herself well? Any news in the press is good news!

I played a TON of Madden football until the release of X-Box 360, I got the 360 for my birthday in January of 2008 & already received the latest Madden football for it as a Christmas gift in 2007. I don’t miss playing video games at all really! I would come home from an evening shift at work (4:00 pm-2:00 am) sit down & play a game of Madden 2007 on mute so as not to wake up Kim. My left hand is almost useless now.

14 years ago Slipknot released “Iowa”. I’m a very casual fan of Slipknot. A little to heavy for me.

Lamb of God shared it………………..

Lamb of God cause circle pit on live TV. I’ve never understood “circle pits” a bunch of people running in a circle? Yes I broke my nose in a mosh pit in ’99, but crowd surfing is fun. I was to large to be in a mosh pit, that’s likely 1 of the reasons my nose is a little crooked. There’s another video within this link. I listen to this album on a daily basis as well as the new Finger Eleven album, they’re both better to me each time I listen to them.

I like both albums “a lot”!

Cancer update? I’m a 6 years & 4 months cancer free. I’m in a wheelchair, with an eye patch over my left eye to prevent double vision but I’m alive. I fell on Monday. Moved to far forward on the couch to use my transfer pole. Did I hurt myself? No. Will I fall again? Probably. Have I ever hurt myself in a fall? Yes, once or twice out of 10 times. Personally Wheelchair, eye patch……………..both beat the alternative!

http://loudwire.com/the-bloodline-poisonous-exclusive-video-premiere/

No, I don’t know “Korn”, I’m not really a fan. I like roughly 2 songs by them. I saw the video below & thought it was the coolest, most interesting video I’d seen since Pearl Jam’s video for “Jeremy”

Rush final tour? Neil Peart gets very sore from playing drums. Sucks that he can’t do something he likes but I guess there comes a day when you’ve got to retire.

Tremonti on new album. Yes, this is old you’ve seen it before.
http://loudwire.com/mark-tremonti-new-album-cauterize-more/?trackback=tsmclip

Why are they so far in to the tour without 1 of the 2 albums released on all websites (not for pre-order on iTunes)? Barenaked Ladies came out of nowhere & already have an iTunes pre-order, a release date, & a tour? I knew more about Tremonti being in the studio than I did about Barenaked Ladies being in the studio & having the recording process going so fast. Is Tremonti going to finish the tour before the album is released? What comes first the chicken or the egg? Who’s the chicken or egg?

The fancy shmancy Alter Bridge box set my mother ordered for me in November of 2013 for my birthday in January of 2014 came last summer/fall. I was lucky. Other people haven’t received anything for an expensive & rare box set (3000 made). Each box set contains multiple DVD interviews, 4 vinyl records, all 4 CDs, a DVD of music videos, a coffee table book & has your name engraved on the front. It was supposed to be released in January of 2014. No wonder those who haven’t received it want a refund.

I like “Clutch” quite a bit!
http://classicrock.teamrock.com/news/2015-04-29/clutch-aim-for-diverse-11th-album

These are just cool videos. Music is subjective as are the videos. I think the concept of having famous actors in the videos were very smart decisions.

So far Smashing Pumpkins, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, A.D.D. & Halestorm have released their albums. My Morning Jacket will be released on Tuesday. Barenaked Ladies’ will be released on June 2nd. So we’re waiting for Finger Eleven, Into Eternity, Third Ion, Tremonti, Tool & whatever else pop’s up.

By the way, it’s Willie Nelson’s birthday today. I’m assuming he’ll have “special” brownies or cake.

This is why I don’t like physical formats of music, they take up room I don’t have now. Digital music doesn’t take up room, & it’s VERY convenient. Napster beat up rock music. Spotify, Pandora radio, iTunes, etc. finished it off. Rock music isn’t dead, it’s just harder to find now.
http://classicrock.teamrock.com/news/2015-04-29/british-library-on-hunt-for-rare-music-collections

If we get rid of streaming & torrent sites, more people will have to pay for music like it should be! Who came up with the idea that anything should be free? Should I go into a restaurant & order steak & lobster & demand that it be free?
