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

I had 2 glasses of cranberry juice & sprite last night.  Bad idea!  I lost track of how many times I had to pee, I listen to portions of many albums!

“Halestorm” the album “Into the Wild Life”

“Foo Fighters” the album “There is Nothing Left to Lose”

“Foo Fighters” the S/T debut album

“Judah & the Lion” the album “Folk Hop n’ Roll”

“Big Wreck” the album “Albatross”

“Big Wreck” the album “…in loving memory”

“Nothing but Thieves” the S/T debut album

Being physically handicapped means nothing to me.  At this point, it’s normal to me.  It’s been that way for a while now.  I know some of my limitations & I know some of the stuff I can do.  Not necessarily limited completely.  My brother & his girlfriend live in a building with no elevator.  They live on the top floor/the 3rd floor.  It takes me a while, but I can get up there.  I think I’ve been there 3 or 4 times.  Rachel knows the deal when I get up there.  I’m greeted with a beer & a dill pickle.  That’s my welcoming gift.

I don’t really feel self-conscious in public anymore either.  If someone sees me & has a question, that’s fine by me.  I’ve never had someone ask me anything but if they want to, there’s no such thing as a stupid question.

Oh, I’m ready to “get my geek on”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Industrial rock/metal is not my thing.  I don’t know a thing about.  Here’s www.loudwire.com take on it though.

I bought these 2 CDs way back when & out of these 2 CDs I only liked the singles and I don’t listen to either album.

I didn’t buy this, but I know a lot of people that really like(d) it.

Seeing “Queen” was a once in a lifetime experience.  Of course we all wanted Freddie Mercury there!  Adam Lambert was classy, hit the notes & in no way tried to steal anybody’s thunder, especially Freddie Mercury’s.

PROMOTION? EXERCISE TOTAL FOR THE WEEK

I fell asleep & woke up to “Dream Theater” the album “The Astonishing”. I waited until shortly after 10:00pm & got it then went to bed. It’s not your typical “Dream Theater” with 9 songs averaging 10 minutes in length. Double album 34 songs in total & most songs are 4 minutes long. The longest is almost 8 minutes. There was a lot more orchestral music on it also. I’d say it’s a really good album!

I exercised to “Eve 6” all 4 albums on shuffle.

Exercise total for the week! 40 leg lifts om my back, 40 leg lifts on my hands & knees, 150 squats, 120 pushups, 1260 crunches, 580 meters walking one day no rest periods. Did I enjoy it? No, but you do what you gotta do! When we were going to the field house on a flat surface I do 800 meters with 2 rest periods. After the first 200 meters then after the following 400 meters, then I’d finish up with the last 200 meters. This doesn’t count the long side walk into & out of the building. Our parking garage has slops for the drain. It’s not a flat surface.

I go to www.youtube.com to share these links & if they’re brand new it tells me to not embed them? This musician doesn’t want me to promote their new song, video, or album? Why is it on www.youtube.com then? Police are going to arrest me because I shared a link? Either way, you’re welcome.

I was fine Monday, I’ve been tired all week since Tuesday morning. I would have liked to have just sat on my butt all week, that never happens unless I declare a break.

I don’t watch much NHL at all because most people watch it for the fighting & big body checks. Nobody wants to see this happen to any official in any sport. Really how idiotic is this? It happened on Wednesday, January 27th. If I was commissioner of the league “Bye, you’re done FOREVER”. I saw this as a highlight on Sportsnet.

I think I’m on a “Dream Theater” kick…….poor Kim!

IPODS

Yes, I fall asleep to music & listen to a song when I wake up. I’m on my 3rd iPod, not certain if I’m up for the iPod touch which is less gigabytes than my current iPod classic. Sure it does pretty much everything other than work as a phone, but I don’t need/want that. I just want an MP3/M4A player. I’ll be paying more for a 128gigabyte player when I send in my 160gigabyte player? Seems weird to me. I don’t have a camera for a reason! I don’t like putting on a fake smile & posing for a picture, so what gives me the right to do that to others. I feel awkward when anyone says “Hey, let’s take a photo to remember this”. I wonder what people did before 90% of the world had a “camera” in their pocket?Right they REMEMBERED things!

When you go to a movie what do they tell you to do with your cell phone? Turn it off! Why not have that said at any large gathering? Don’t the other individuals deserve the same courtesy? At a play, movie, library, class room, live event, concert, etc. Stop looking down to your hands, there’s something else happening right here at the moment. If you came to see me, I’m here, not on your phone, “What am I missing that’s SO important?”

 

I’ll give you a total of what & how many exercise’ I did this week on Friday. It looks more impressive that way. It looks pretty impressive even now!

 

Fell asleep to this “Into Eternity” the album “Buried in Oblivion”

Woke up, at 3:15 & stayed in bed until 6:00, listening to this “Genesis’ Greatest Hits”, “INXS’ Greatest Hits” & a song from “High Holy Days’ All my real Friends”

Today’s exercise was brought to you by “The Agonist” 4 albums on shuffle.

 

Good to see that I’m not the only one with this negative opinion. In the end it’s subjective. On the Facebook page it reads “We’re waiting Lars” as in Lars Ulrich of Metallica. Bahahahaha!
