I fell asleep to “Matthew Good Band” the album “Beautiful Midnight”

I exercised to “Econoline Crush” the album “The Devil You Know”

 

Weekly exercise total; 800 pushups, 560 leg lifts, 400 crunches, 300 squats, 240 tricep pushups, & 190 back flexes.  All of that in a 4 day week.

Next week will be a normal 5 day week.  Regular Sunday, Wednesday, & Friday post.

 

Tuesday.  Some days my stupidity is at 11/10.  “Hey, I just had 4 days off!  Let’s do all of the exercise at the goal limit” idiot.  I’m very tired this Tuesday morning after everything.

More of my T-Shirts are fitting with all of this exercise during the week.  I don’t know why, but I’ve felt tired all week.  Before my exercise & after my exercise.  Even did something different one day as a plumber was checking the en suite showers on the 2nd & 3rd floors.  I had breakfast & tended to the dishwasher first & then did my exercise.  They came to our suite first I believe.  I just didn’t want to be on the floor exercising when they came.

All of this exercise & eating healthy has made a difference but you can’t really see a difference in my muscles.  I’ve lost weight but even Kim says there’s very little definition shows in my muscles.  I’d have to agree with that.

It seems the older I get, the more bumps, cuts, & scabs I get.  “When did I do that?”  The answer never shows up & I just carry on as usual.

 

SIMON & GARFUNKEL

Stop laughing.  Summer of 1997 I bought a 3 disc box set of theirs.  We were living at my Grandparents place while dad & friends were rebuilding everything in our basement at home.

I bought the box set & listened to it constantly at a low volume in “my” temporary room as I fell asleep.  I can’t remember who mentioned them to me?  Might have been our choir conductor?  This was my last year of baseball.  I was playing on 2 teams & blew out my arm, making multiple throws from 3B to 1B (roughly 127 feet).

The Chamber Choir went to Newfoundland that summer for the exact same dates that my city league team was scheduled to play a tournament in Montana.  I already knew about the Newfoundland trip & told my coach at the first practice about the Newfoundland trip when he told us about the tournament.  He instantly got mad & had a temper tantrum.  “CANCEL IT NOW” he yelled at me.  I told him I couldn’t & that I had been fundraising & wouldn’t back out of this commitment I already had.  The baseball season went on.  I’d check the lineup & every day it was me, playing third base, & batting 9th, I was a terrible hitter.  The team went to Montana & I went to Newfoundland.  The first game back from the tournament I was benched!  The nastiest player on the team took over third base.  So I quit right there after the game & a HUGE argument with my head coach.  We didn’t see eye to eye on his decision to bench me or my decision to go with the choir.  I went back to my Grandparents house & relaxed to “Simon & Garfunkel”…..

Anybody watching “Riverdale”?  Archie comic characters, made into a murder mystery live action TV show.  Kim & I are hooked on this show.  Betty’s last name is Cooper, guess what her mother’s first name is?  Alice!  I just laugh & go “Look it’s Alice Cooper Hahahahahahahaha!”

It’s a Netflix original, but it’s on the CW channel before it’s available on Netflix.

Look at that!  “Theory of a Deadman” can do something completely different than “Nickelback”, & do it well.  A cover of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game”.  If he’s not making music Chris Isaak should make a comeback.  Not the comeback below though.

Not this “Comeback”

Terrible video too.  More than a little sexist…………….BY FAR.

Clean version.  Other version contained a parade of naked women.

 

Robert Plant on Greta Van Fleet

 

I was doing my exercise yesterday to Billy Joel.  Took me back to last year or the year before 3 or 4 of us driving to Saskatoon to see “Trivium” singing Billy Joel on the way there!  It also reminded me of this from earlier this week…

 

Could anyone shed some light on TONS of people having an issue with “Justice League”?  I watched it for the 2nd time this week & I still like it.  Maybe the next movie (Aquaman from what I hear) will be written & directed by Marvel studios?  Is it that bad, or are people just looking for something to complain about”?  This ruined the movie for them?  I’ve never seen it!

 

Tremonti “A Dying Machine” is out for preorder today & you get this song from it.  Full album will be released June 8th.

I fell asleep to “In Flames” the album “Clayman”

I exercised to “Metallica” the album “S & M”

4 day week I’ll remind you.  Kim has Monday off, so I will too.  You’ll get a blog post on Monday not Sunday, & likely Friday & again no Wednesday post.

Exercise weekly total; 800 pushups, 560 leg lifts, 400 crunches, 270 squats, 240 tricep pushups, & 160 back flexes.  Remember that I have the time to do that, you likely have a job that pays you &/or kids to look after.  I’m here pretty much every day.

I don’t increase to an insane amount when I increase the numbers of something.  Wednesday & Thursday were 75 squats instead of 60.  I was doing 3 sets of 20.  I increased each set to 25.  Nothing TREMENDOUS, just 5 more to each set.  Everything started at 10 or some at 20.  Heck I was doing pushups from my knees.  I’d set my knees back further when I hit 50, I had to figure out how to do 20 (2 sets of 10) from my feet.  They might seem like big numbers, but remember that they all started quite low & were built up over time.

Quite a few people tell Kim & I, that we’ve been through enough in those 4.5 years to last 30 years.  It might seem like a lot, but if you’re with the right person, it flies by, of course Kim’s the right person.

Last weekend was rather frustrating.  If something could go wrong (technology) wise, it did.  A lot of software/app issues.  Could be me, a user problem?  I don’t doubt that possibility at all.  I think it came together late Sunday night though.

 

I like Devin Townsend, I can’t get into “Strapping Young Lad” that he was a part of.  “Devin Townsend Project” is really good, they could be a gateway band into metal I would think?

YAY, Blue Jays baseball starts!  Game 1 of 162!  I watch as many games as possible.  If I can’t OK, Blue Jays in 00:30 it is.  I’m a hard core baseball/Blue Jays NERD, 162 games fly by for me.  I don’t know every players’ stats but I can’t get enough of the game.  3 hours a day, maybe less.  They’ve introduced new rules to help speed up things a bit.  Kind of breaks my heart but I understand that they’re trying to attract a bigger audience to the game.

Do you have a question about stage 4 brain cancer?  Ask if you do!

I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the album “Concrete & Gold, followed by “Trivium” the album “The Sin & the Sentence”

Friday carried on with me watching the Blue Jays first pre-season game & some of the kids, I think, have a chance of making the 25 man roster.  All of that said, it was one game.  I watched the game & Prime Time Sports with Bob McCown.  I only watch the first hour on Fridays to hear the call in hour for other people’s opinion on whatever they want to talk about, or anytime of the week when he announces what the topics will be & who he’ll be talking to.  Kim came home & as usual we watched “The Ellen Degeneres Show” then the Olympics until we went to bed at 10:30 or so.

I missed 3 of my favourite “Winter Olympics” events.  Ski jump, Speed Skating, & Hockey.

Kim got up early Saturday to go out for coffee with Jolene.  Then off to see a medium.  After going to see a Medium she was home at 5:30 pm.  We hung out on the couch, had supper, & watched some of “Friends” on Netflix after “The Legend of 420”.

I don’t use it, but you go ahead.  It is said that it can help cancer patients.  It was never recommended to me, although I know it can be useful.  I personally choose not to use it.

Kim went out this morning for groceries.  I cooked fish yesterday for my lunches during the week.  Made a veggie juice for the week.  We visited my Grandparents for a bit.  My cousin, her husband, & their toddler were there also.

We’ll be hard boiling some eggs & doing laundry.  Just our usual Sunday, getting ready for the week ahead.

 

 

Prince was the first musical act I was into, but Michael Jackson was never out of sight.  I saw the video for “Thriller” & was pretty much hooked on him for a long time.  When the album “Dangerous” was released & the video for “Black or White” was released, it was an event in my parents’ house.  Of course there are songs I’m not a huge fan of, but most of his stuff I’ve always enjoyed.

All I own for Michael Jackson is the albums “Dangerous” & 2 “Greatest Hits” albums.  I made an album of 30 songs on iTunes that I’ll listen to all the way through.  “All killer, no filler” – Sum 41.  That album was mostly filler for me.

 

In Flames, Opeth, & Dream Theater seem to be under constant fire for not being as “heavy” as they once were.  Unless you’re a flat out metal fan, heavy isn’t always necessary

TOP 10 ALBUMS OF 2017/FINAL POST OF THE YEAR/WEEKLY EXERCISE TOTAL

600 pushups, 500 leg lifts & 225 triceps pushups!  Crunches & Back flexes will be thrown into the mix on January 2nd.  120 pushups, 100 leg lifts, 100 crunches, 45 triceps pushups, & 40 back flexes a day, 5 days a week.

I can’t really make a top 10, there were a TON of AWESOME albums released this year.  Singles, live albums, Greatest Hits & EPs don’t count.  So here they are, & after the first 2, everything is pretty much tied for 3rd.  It’s only a top 10 list with other albums below that didn’t quite make the cut.

After this, I’ll catch you January 1st, with a holiday update.

 

  1. Kelly Clarkson – Meaning of Life. Her 7th studio album, not including her Christmas album.

 

  1. Halflives – Empty Rooms. Their first album.

 

 

  1. Trivium – The Sin & the Sentence. Their 8th studio album

 

  1. Ed Sheeran – Divide. His 3rd studio album

 

  1. Royal Blood – How Did We Get so Dark? Their 2nd studio album

 

  1. Queens of the Stone Age – Villains. Their 7th studio album

 

  1. Big Wreck – Grace Street. Their 5th studio album.

 

  1. Foo Fighters – Concrete & Gold. Their 9th studio album.  Once I got past the over production on the album, I REALLY enjoy this album

 

  1. Paramore – After Laughter. Paramore’s 5th album

 

  1. Nothing but Thieves – Broken Machine. This was their second release & much like the first release, it’s my favourite album of the year.

 

HONORABLE MENTIONS

 

Stone Sour – Hydrograd.  I’m just hooked on their 2nd, 3rd, & 4th album.  This is album number 6 for them.

 

Alter Bridge – B-Sides & Rarities w/ a double album Live at the 02 Arena

 

In Flames – Down, Wicked, & No Good 4 song EP of cover songs

Yes, Chris Izsak’s hit from the ‘90s

 

Ascot Royals – New Skin EP.  They opened for Big Wreck in February

 

The Watchmen – Live & in Stereo.  21 live songs from a show in Winnipeg (their home town) at The Burton Comings Theater.

 

Pentatonix – 4 EP.  They’re 7 cover songs on the EP done by the A Capella group.

It also has a cover of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” but it’s just OK.

 

Barenaked Ladies – Fake Nudes.  An album released November 17th that will likely grow on me.

 

Alice Cooper – Paranormal.  Good album that was just missing something for me?  I can see this growing on me too

 

ALBUMS I BOUGHT BUT WASN’T HOOKED ON THEM OR I JUST HAVEN’T LISTENED TO ENOUGH

 

Linkin Park – One More Light

 

Muse – Dig Down Single

 

Jack Johnson – All the Light Above it Too

 

Prophets of Rage – Self-titled.  A bit too much on the rap side for me, but not bad.

 

I have a short list of albums to purchase from 2017.

 

Pink – Beautiful Trauma

 

U2 – Songs of Experience

 

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – Who Built the Moon?

 

The Devin Townsend Project – Transcendence

 

I’ve already checked out a few that aren’t listed here & didn’t make the cut.

 

7 albums to be released in 2018 I’ll check purchase from iTunes if I like them.

 

Myles Kennedy – Year of the Tiger

 

A Perfect Circle – TBA

 

Corrosion of Conformity – No Cross No Crown

 

Fall Out Boy – MANIA

 

Halestorm – TBA

 

Dream Theater – Into the Great Divide

 

Tremonti – TBA

 

 

Merry Christmas!

 

Happy Holidays!

 

Enjoy some time off of work!

I fell asleep to “Stitched Up Heart” the album “Never Alone”

I exercised to “Candlebox” the album “Love Stories & Other Musings”

 

FRIDAY DECEMBER 22 WILL BE THE FINAL BLOG FOR THE YEAR!!!!!!!

 

OK, I get to sit here & fill you in on stuff I like, movies, TV shows, & music.  That’s great & all.  I do encourage you to check out stuff I recommend.  I also encourage you to find your own things & share it as a comment.  I’m aware that not everyone will like the same things, don’t be shy, “tell us about it”, and make us aware of something the rest of us are missing out on!  I would love for this to be much more interactive!  You don’t need to have survived brain cancer to have an opinion about something.

I hate exercising as much as the next person, until about 5 – 10 minutes after I’m done with it.  I figure “Ah, get it over with ASAP”.

I look up reviews on movies, music, & TV shows as much or more than the next person does or would like to.  “In the end” it’s quite subjective, check it out & see if it’s to your liking.

I always encourage you to make up YOUR OWN mind about everything!  Here’s an example, so many people love the Marvel Comic book movies.  Guess what?  I prefer the DC movies more than the Marvel movies.  Some people don’t like comic book movies.  It’s AOK with me.  Some people prefer to not watch movies or TV.  I’m OK with that too!  I don’t understand it, but I acknowledge that.

That’s the reason my music reviews are more like “Hey check this out.  See if you like it.”  Friday is my top 10 albums of the year & some stuff I haven’t gotten a chance to purchase yet.  That’s the only time I’ll rate an album.

 

 

We finished season/part 4 of “The Ranch” on Sunday.  Yes, we were binge watching it.  10 episodes each a ½ hour long.  Released on Friday.

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Star Wars only got the 2nd highest opening weekend ever $220,000,000

I was going to purchase the “Depeche Mode” Greatest Hits album among other Greatest Hits albums.  I found out I’m not a big fan of the artist or groups, just a song here & there.  “In Flames” just released a 4 song EP of cover songs.  That’s what got me on this 1980, 1990, & early 2000s train.  Here are the 3 Depeche Mode songs I plan on purchasing 2 of the 3 songs have been covered.

 

Here are the 2 performances by Foo Fighters on SNL this past weekend.

Friday was quite tame as usual.  Part 4 of “The Ranch” was on Netflix.  I think we ended on episode 3 & Kim fell asleep on the couch, she’s quite tired come Friday & it seems to get warmer in here as the day goes on.  All I did was exercise in the morning, shower, load the dishwasher, run it, do some hand wash dishes & empty the dishwasher.  I feel like I just rolled a marathon.  How did I get so sweaty?

I wonder how they’ll deal with Danny Masterson (Rooster from The Ranch or Hyde from That 70s show) being accused of rape.  This is the most recent news I’ve heard regarding this.

Saturday we were up late & had some friends over.  We watched “Office Christmas Party” then “Deadpool”.  Even after roughly 20 of seeing it, it never gets old for me!

Sunday.  Kim has more Christmas stuff to tend to.  She went out this morning to get a new cell phone.  Her iPhone fell out of her purse while in the parking garage & the glass broke.  I slept in, I showered while she was out, then we watched “Tanked”.  I miss having a fish tank, we were really good at killing fish.  We tried everything, perfect heat, no heat, proper PH balance, distilled filtered water, fresh filtered water, 1 fish added at a time, 5 fish added at a time, etc.  Nothing worked, we’d have 3 fish die a week!  I was baffled!

Now I’m off to watch SNL with Foo Fighters as the musical guest, then get ready for the week, as usual

I’ve never been a Kiss fan & even less of a Gene Simmons fan.

https://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/kiss-gene-simmons-responds-to-sexual-misconduct-lawsuit-w514190

 

Pitchers Marcus Stroman, Aaron Sanchez, & Roberto Osuna should be untouchable.  All 3 are excellent, young, all have a bright future & are under contract for a few years.  In my opinion don’t trade them, if the Blue Jays do, they had better get something REALLY good in return.  Stroman & Sanchez are potential Cy Young award winners & Osuna is almost a guarantee to get 3 out in the 9th inning.  They’re all in their early 20s.  Unless they’re getting a superstar in return, no reason to trade them.

I fell asleep to “Royal Blood” the album “How Did We Get So Dark?”

Followed by “Nothing but Thieves” their debut self-titled album

Why is this world so full of hatred?  Does anybody see religion against religion, colour against colour, gender against gender, or sexuality against sexuality?  Somebody PLEASE show me where that is written & who wrote or said it?  If any of this is true, why aren’t all Muslims terrorist?  Or all white people a part of the KKK?

It’s not Religion or else I’d be in a holy war against all non-Christian Religions.  I don’t care about someone else’ sexuality, race, or anyone’s difference in lifestyle!  If you’re a good person, let’s hang out!  If you’re not a good person, GO AWAY!  If only it was that easy!

I don’t understand the Q in #LGBTQ.  I don’t have to understand it, I have to acknowledge it, and I do.  I know it stands for ‘queer’ but none of those initials should not define you as a good or bad person.

My other question is the song “Imagine” by John Lennon appropriate at Christmas time?

Great song about peace!!!!!  If there’s “…no religion….” There’s no Christmas!  Kim & I were watching “A Pentatonix Christmas” & that was the final song.  Great song, but I don’t understand why it’s in a Christmas special?

 

I think everyone has both a good & bad personality.  I also think we can all do a little better & focus more on the good in us.  Not just at the holiday season, but every day!  We can all do better every day!

 

You know it will be entertaining.  You know………………..because he’s crazy.

Rolling Stone’s top 50 albums of the year.  Wow, my list will be 10, I couldn’t afford 50!  I may have bought 15 or 20 & some of them were just OK.  2 of these 50 albums I bought & will make my list.  Most of the others I’ve either never heard of or are just not for me.

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/lists/50-best-albums-of-2017-w511763

 

We can’t afford the gas to see Queens of the Stone Age in Calgary, Edmonton, or Winnipeg.  I would REALLY like to see them in Calgary on Thursday, May 17th.  Forget about tickets, which regular seating or general admission is at most $70 plus fees & taxes!  I would expect wheelchair seating to be $49-$70 as it shows on www.ticketmaster.ca.   Gas alone will kill our money tree.

This looks like a really good show to me.  We also had our passports expire while I was sick.  This show is out of the question for me.  It’s also a bit to hit & miss for me anyways.  Tool, A Perfect Circle, Stone Temple Pilots, & Stitched Up Heart.  Many more too………

http://loudwire.com/tool-avenged-sevenfold-alice-in-chains-headline-2018-rock-on-the-range/

Sometimes I don’t like the fact that I live in the middle of nowhere.  Some bands must think “We’ll play everywhere in Canada except the northern Territories, Maritimes, & Saskatchewan”.  Weird, yet In Flames from Sweden has been to Saskatoon about 2 or 3 years ago!  Some bands hit Montreal, Toronto, & Vancouver & call that a Canadian tour.  Those places are minimum a 2 day drive for us!

I have to see Queens of the Stone Age at least once before I die.  This is their 7th studio album, & it’s AWESOME, makes me want to bust a move, in my wheelchair!
