Still Tuesday July 26th. Just returned from the chiropractor. I actually cracked this time, last time I didn’t. Baseball & an ice pack & we’ll see how I feel in the morning? There likely wont be an exercise total this week or early on next week unless I wake up & feel great.

Wednesday morning much better back! Some stretching & ice, and I hope to be in my exercise routine by the beginning of next week!

My back muscles get tight over night of course, when I get up it’s not pleasant. After dooing multiple stretches & applying ice, it feels remarkably better, almost no pain at all.

On this day, Thursday, July 26th, 2012 I was released from the Wascana Rehabilitation Center & I haven’t returned since. I’d like to visit, but I can’t drive & Kim’s working full time.

Sorry, I just write a lot.

I REALLY liked my job as a printing press operator. The most difficult thing to deal with was getting the paper feeder set up properly. You could have identical press’ side by side & they wouldn’t work the same. I was young & still learning when I started there, around 23 I’d guess? I got cancer 6 days after my 28th birthday. I was thrown in & everyone expected a TON from me. When Sherry Stewart & I were working the same shift, I’d mentally race to keep up or try to pass her in setting up a job on a press. She is really good at her job & was always a step ahead of me. I kind of miss running a printing press. If I could go back to Impact Printers I would in a heart beat.

I didn’t seek out to be a printer, I fell into it accidentally I had no clue what I wanted to do. I grabbed a calender from SIAST & thought the Graphic Arts Production program looked interesting. Even when I first got there I thought I’d take desktop computer designing….boy was I wrong after my first semester I chose to going into the production side of things. I liked it, since I didn’t have to deal with clients for the most part. When I did have to deal with a client I was fine, not always what I wanted to do, but not a big deal.

When iPods came out, I’d pop in 1 ear bud, listen to the press & go about my day. Most print shops, at least the ones I worked at, nobody running a press wanted to stop for lunch or coffee. Once it’s running well you don’t want to interrupt a press. If it’s not going well, you have work to do/figure out the problem.

This happened on July 26th 2004. A guitarist doing his job, playing live & shot by a fan.

This wasn’t the group he was with at the time. This is the group he is most known for.

This is up for some award as rock song of the year? I like Fall Out Boy, but I’ve always thought of them as a pop band, not a rock band?

There are many famous groups I don’t listen to, since I’m not a fan of their music. I’m sorry if I don’t like your favourite band or solo act. It would be a pretty boring world if everybody liked the same stuff. Out of all of the bands/musicians I don’t listen to. If I had to choose one it would be Metallica. If you don’t have the same taste in music, that’s fine by me.

What’s new with the “Manson family”?

I have no albums coming to me until October 7th then 2 are released that day.

The only 2 things I can think of that might pop up in the next 2 months music wise for me is “The Pretty Reckless” & “Into Eternity”? I’ve got the single from “The Pretty Reckless” but no release date. I know “Into Eternity” has an album recorded, it’s not released yet though. “Tool”, I’m just not holding my breath for it will be released whenever & myself and other “Tool” fans will rejoice!

Good news for Guns n’ Roses fans. No end date for the “reunion” tour.

I found this just trolling on www.youtube.com LANGUAGE!!!!!

Quiet/boring week here. I actually miss exercising? It keeps me busy along with writing a blog everyday. I’ve been watching movies over & over again, & “Stranger Things” on Netflix. Of course a ton of music as well. Stretching my back & applying ice to it.

This is what I’ve been listening to throughout the week…………..

ALICE IN CHAINS

Monday, January 13th 2014

 

Yes, the grunge band that was lumped in with the metal bands?  I don’t find them to be extremely heavy, especially when they debut with Layne Staley who died of a heroin overdose years ago.  Now they’re like the current Guns n’ Roses, “Axl & Friends”.  Alice in Chains now should be Jerry Cantrell & Friends.  Just change your group’s name to something else! 

 

This isn’t heavy, it’s the same with acoustic guitar….

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r80HF68KM8g

 

I think this is the song that caught every fan’s attention…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JB_fNVOPzyM

 

Every musician knows about this song. Chris Messer suggested our first band do it, so I think after a while I got over my fear of singing incredibly high and eventually got it…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Opzq-hxYgfE

 

The newest album, The Devil put Dinosaurs Here, I find to be much heavier.  Here’s the first song on the album…  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmSeWqmlqYs

 

Then the second song sounds like the ’90s version of Alice in Chains, don’t worry that’s enough links! Since there’s one below.

 

Stone Temple Pilots should change their name also, they have a new singer/front man.  Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, Scott Weiland is out because he’s unreliable, like Axl, he shows up when he wants to.  You can tell him a certain time but then you might have to wait 2 hours after the time given!   

 

STACEY & CHUCK

 

I think I’ve met Stacey’s parents once, I just wanted to post this song since it’s HILARIOUS!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZLfasMPOU4

 

They came for brunch yesterday, mini knishes, bacon, french toast casserole w/ real maple syrup, a fruit tray and juice, water or coffee!  We still have leftovers!  I’ve had 3 meals of that and they’ve all been AWESOME!  Now where should I get Cinnamon buns?  Carmen’s becoming unreliable, I’ve been wearing pants in case she randomly pop’s in with a batch and she hasn’t, so today NO PANTS!  Short shorts with Ellen undies!  Thanks Sherry!  They’re comfy, and they keep everything in the right place!  Maybe I’ll get a few more for my birthday?  I hope!

 

Impact people is it wrong that I had a dream last night about operating the old 5 colour that’s not their anymore?  I had a dream that I was dry on my magenta ink which was in the yellow unit?  Weird, I never had a dream about any job that I’ve had.

 

  “Don’t judge anyone until you’ve been in their shoes”

 

“Just because today is a terrible day doesn’t mean tomorrow won’t be the best day of your life. You’ve just got to get their” I don’t have terrible days.

 

“Don’t try to please everyone, it CAN’T happen”

 

“Apologize for your mistakes and learn something from them”
