I fell asleep to “Alice Cooper” the album “Paranormal”, “Diemonds” the album “Never Wanna Die”, & finally “INXS” their “Greatest Hits”

Yeah, bonus live tracks at the end of this album.

 

I exercised to “Royal Blood” the album “How did we get so dark?”

 

Exercise total this week; 500 crunches, 500 leg lifts, 300 pushups, 200 back flexes, & 25 minutes of planking!  Every day starts with me exercising, no shower, dressed in workout attire, & no breakfast.  Once I finish my exercises, then I allow myself to have breakfast, shower, put on clean clothes, & usually in this room to work on the next blog.  Yep, I hit my goal every day this week.

I do get quiet exhausted after my 60 pushups.  I leave them for the end since I’m useless after them.  I roll on to my side or back since it’s easier to breathe!  I start my exercises on my back, crunches & leg lifts, once I roll on to my stomach & do ½ of my back flexes, I’m breathing pretty heavy already!  I end up doing some of my planking for a bit.  Once the back flexes & planking is done, then I’ll do a set of 20-30 pushups, then fish with 2 sets of 20 or a set of 30.

After I shower, I check to see if my balance has improved with my hands hovering by my transfer pole.  Some days are really good, & most days are bad.  When it’s a bad day I’ll try a few more times.  That’s the reason for the wheelchair & exercising!  I need to start walking with my walker at least once a week, if not 3 times a week.  When I do, I can tell that my exercising makes a HUGE improvement each time!  That being said, I’ve still have a long road ahead of me.

 

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

NO, I DO NOT FOLLOW CANADIAN POLITICS AT ALL! As a person with a physical disability, what the Republican Presidential nominee did by mocking people with disabilities does not anger me or the fact that I am physically disabled. I don’t really think of myself as disabled & I’m sure that many others who are mentally or physically disabled don’t think of it either. What that disrespectful mocking did was exactly what this election is about. He separated people more instead of bringing people together. He made it clear, there’s him, 400 feet of crap, upper class, middle class, lower class, 400 feet of crap & everyone else. My legs work, just not for a long period of time. I’ll take a stand for those who can’t, literally & figuratively. It’s disrespectful & does not warrant any gain for ANYONE! I feel bad for Americans, in that some of them support Donald Trump. Remember, he mocked EVERYONE that has a disability! That includes any member of the military who has fought for the country & that anyone can vote in an election.

A broken bone or whatever will heal. A vote for Hillary will never be taken away! I may be Canadian but #ImWithHer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I want to do something! This is nonsense, I’m bored!!!! I tried some frozen corn on my back but it didn’t work & we don’t have frozen peas? Do peas work better?

Yay, another really good A Capella group. 7th Avenue!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If there is ever a show near us with Pentatonix or 7th Avenue in the lineup, I’d pee a bit & buy a ticket ASAP! I’d try to get my priorities straight but I don’t think my bladder could wait?

This is great! I have another solution for this problem. If you’re a civilian & not hunting, why do you need a gun? If you pull a gun out while the police are present, what do you think they’ll do? If you don’t carry a gun, the police have no reason to protect themselves with a gun? Imagine how simple that would be?

Please don’t sing this song if I’m within eye sight?

EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL

I fell asleep to “Kongos” the album “Egomaniac” yes, I got it last night at 10:00 pm

I exercised to “Foo Fighters” 60 B-Sides on shuffle.

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

https://www.facebook.com/A-Million-Miles-Away-Blog-1597618270456002/?ref=hl

If you’re following the blog on my personal Facebook page, could you please follow it on the link above? Just for me to keep track of subscribers.

www.amillionmilesawayblog.com for email

Exercise total for the week ;7500 crunches, 600 leg lifts, 300 squats, & 250 push ups.

I prefer to get up by at least 7:30 am & get stuff done. Kim “…woke me up before…” she left for work at 7. I slept in until 8:30 and instantly felt like I was chasing the day already. I’ll have to ask her if she could wake me up when she gets in the shower & then when she leaves if I’m still in bed.

It’s pretty nice not being in a band, at the same time, I do miss it! It’s nice in that I don’t have to be on, I wasn’t really before. Alcohol before a show was a BIG no, no for me. It screwed up my throat. I would have a beer after the show. If we were headlining a show, I’d get to have a beer at 2:30 am. After hauling my gear from the venue. It was a fantastic hobby though!

Now I can relax & watch someone else do that, have whatever to eat or drink, & not worry about messing up the lyrics.

My body feels old, but my mind disagrees. I may be 36, but I have the mindset of an early 20 year old. I have never liked taking things too seriously. If you can’t laugh at yourself, stop laughing at someone else?

When “In Flames” released their album “Siren Charms” there was a lot of backlash from their die hard fans. Complaining that the band had gone soft & shouldn’t be labeled as a metal band anymore! How about the fans do it instead? Or go back to the earlier albums that they like? Being in a band for me was about making the music I liked. None of us did it for anyone else, at least I didn’t! If you don’t like doing what you’re doing, you’re doing it for a loved one or you’re doing the wrong thing?

New Red Hot Chili Peppers tune.

http://loudwire.com/red-hot-chili-peppers-we-turn-red/

I only listen to 2 of their albums. I own 3 but they just aren’t a group I listen to much. I own “Californication”, “By The Way” & “Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magic”, I didn’t even bother putting this last one on my iTunes.

The first band I was in, in University, covered this song. This is the album that was released 17 years ago, that made me feel so old.

The new Kongos album is the second iTunes purchase I’ve made since Kim signed up for Apple Music. Both purchases on iTunes since that time have songs that don’t work? Could anyone at Apple please fix this, I can’t or else I would. They launched Apple Music & our iTunes Match screwed up royally, so we canceled it. Now we have an Apple Music account, & iTunes is messed up again. This “back & forth” game with Apple seems to be a losing effort? I might just revert to buying CDs?

Who was ‘Spirit’ other than the band suing Led Zeppelin for plagiarism on “Stairway to Heaven”? Why are they suing now? Their song was released in 1969 or 1970? I think someone needs/wants money?

STREAMING MUSIC SITES

I fell asleep to “Megadeth” new album “Dystopia” then I put on “Trivium” the album “Vengeance Falls”

I exercised to”Anthrax” all on shuffle.

New “Anthrax” album on Friday with this tune as the first of two singles that are out.

It’s on Facebook if you prefer.

https://www.facebook.com/A-Million-Miles-Away-Blog-1597618270456002/?ref=hl

I looked into streaming music sites a bit. If you stop paying the fee or unsubscribe from it, your music goes away also, that’s the reason as to why I don’t care much for streaming music. I pay more but I own the music. The bulk of my music comes from iTunes, although I do purchase the odd CD about once or twice a year. Unless you purchase a CD at a concert, the artist(s) makes pennies on a sale. Buy a ticket to the concert, buy a CD, or buy some merchandise while you’re there. That’s how musicians make money. It’s likely not enough for bands that started their career in the 2010s.

SPORTS THEN MUSIC & POP CULTURE STUFF

I fell asleep to “In Flames” the album “Siren Charms” first I listen to most of an 18 song “Greatest Hits” by “INXS”

I woke up early & listened to “The Northern Pikes” the album “Snow in June”

I exercised to ”Our Lady Peace” 9 albums on shuffle, 8 of them are on CD!

No, not baseball, but I do try to watch as many Blue Jays games as possible. Not much of football either. NHL is what this short paragraph will be about.

If I want to watch a fight, as a Canadian I can watch boxing, UFC, MMA, or NHL. If I want to watch hockey, I’m lucky if there’s a European game on whatever network. I’ve been to 1 NHL exhibition/preseason game. When did people cheer the loudest? When a fight would occur. Sure they cheered for a goal, all 3 or 4 of them. The crowd made it very apparent that they came to see two guys, on ice, try to beat the snot out of each other. Nobody seemed to care about the score, that’s why I don’t watch this thing called “hockey”. A broken bone will heal, the score of a hockey game will never change. This suspension of a mere 20 games was upheld by the NHL Wednesday afternoon. I still say “Goodbye…………………FOREVER!!!! You cross checked an official you moron!”

NFL vs. CFL, apples & oranges. CFL “Longer, Wider, Faster” I had a T-Shirt back in the day that said that about the CFL. Playing field in the CFL 110 yards long by 65 yards wide, end zones are 20 yards deep. NFL playing field is 100 yards long by 53.5 yards wide, end zone are 10 yards. An NFL game is scheduled for a minimum of 4 hours, a CFL game is scheduled for 3 hours. Both leagues can use the same ball. CFL footballs are normally larger around. 3 downs in Canada, not 4 like the NFL. CFL goal posts are at the end zone line, NFL goal posts are even with the back of the end zone.

I’ve never gotten into NFL though many Canadians are. The CFL has become rather boring, could be because the home town Saskatchewan Roughriders have been terrible the last 2 seasons.

Cancer wise, nothing new. Right now my body is trying to be more of a normal/healthy body. Kind of like going through a different type of puberty? The first puberty was great, let’s do something like that again!………………..NOT! That or I’m just getting old?

I couldn’t even name a song by “Kesha”. I have seen her interviewed a few times on “Conan”, but that’s it.

Awesome, I liked the 5 song EP “Stone Temple Pilots” released with “Chester Bennington” of “Linkin Park”

http://loudwire.com/stone-temple-pilots-reunite-chester-bennington-one-off-benefit/

I’d enter this contest, but I’m really turned off by the “singer” for “Children of Bodom” who are opening as the 2nd of 3 bands in total. I like these 2 songs but that’s it.

Sing or do death metal growls? Don’t do both at the same time, it’s not all that & a bag of chips. Figure it out & “call me maybe”

“Big Wreck” shared it! This album instantly reminds me of “Dire Straits”

WEEKEND UPDATE

Friday evening we sat on our butts & watched disc 2 of season 6 of “Boy Meets World”

I got all 7 seasons on DVD for Christmas, it’s kind of a high school crush thing for me. Kim got mad at me recently. She came home from work I told her I had watched episodes that day. Now I know not to do that. Saturday, Kim had a hair appointment. Brewster & I spent the day at my parents place. Dad & I watched the first 2 “Hobbit” movies on his HD projector in the basement on his 84” screen. “Hobbit” movies, popcorn & coke, good times! Kim came over to my parents so the 4 of us could have some tasty tourtier for supper.

Sunday I plan to avoid the Super Bowl at all costs. I don’t watch NFL football at all, too long for me. Canadian Football League aka CFL is my football. I watch the CFL & MLB baseball. Both are scheduled as 3 hour games, NFL is scheduled for 4 hours a game + all of the hype before & after the game. Too much for me. Even if a CFL game goes into overtime it feels too long for me. Toronto Blue Jays baseball, I can watch forever. Last season I watched an entire 19 inning game, a regular game is 9 innings. There’s no such thing as a tie game in baseball, they just play until someone wins. I very rarely watch the NHL. Yeah, a Canadian who doesn’t watch hockey, that’s me. I check out the standings once in a while. I cheer for the Montreal Canadians, the Edmonton Oilers and anyone playing against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Even people in Toronto are disappointed with their hockey team & the attendance is dropping steadily from what I hear on “Prime Time Sports with Bob McCowen”.

“Chevelle” are in the studio!!!!

“Red Hot Chili Peppers”. I’ve pretty much stopped listening to them “Californication” & “By the Way” are the only to albums now on my iTunes. The rest isn’t much to my liking.

Weird? If the artist is having a tantrum over free advertising, I guess he can sue if he likes? Could have just asked for royaties?

Metallica’s The Night Before The Super Bowl concert

http://loudwire.com/metallica-rock-the-night-before-concert-address-super-bowl-halftime-snub/

Just watched Saturday Night Live. The musical guest was “The 1975” instantly reminded me of “INXS” who I really like so I pre-ordered their 2nd release on iTunes.

Then I figured since I’m on iTunes I might as well grab “The Northern Pikes” album “Snow in June”

Top 10 songs heard at sporting events. They won’t have the 3 songs you always hear at the home town Saskatchewan Roughriders games

http://loudwire.com/top-10-songs-heard-at-sporting-events/

If the Riders are about to win by a large margin you’ll fear this song. Haven’t heard this song at the stadium the last few years. The Saskatchewan Roughriders are terrible lately, & that’s an overstatement!

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!
