Thursday evening Kim came home & we pretty much left immediately to see “Spiderman: Homecoming”.  FANTASTIC movie!  I know comic book movies aren’t for everyone, but I’m all in for the Marvel & DC comic book movies!  “300” & “300 Rise of an Empire” were really good as well.  I couldn’t get into “Sin City” or any other graphic novel movies though.

 

That was our Thursday evening.  Friday morning we woke up & weren’t sure what to do with ourselves.  I had 3 things that needed to be done.  We went out in the late afternoon.  I had my Roughrider jersey from Andy Fantuz fixed, Kim picked up a few groceries we needed for supper.  Brewster & I went along but stayed in the vehicle.  He loves going for a “car ride”.  A “ride” in the summer means he gets to drool/pant all over my arm until we’re somewhere I can roll down the window for him!

Friday, after the few errands were done, we just stayed home.  I watched the Toronto Blue Jays actually win a game & Kim put the house back together after a morning of cleaning.  She doesn’t just clean, she does “spring cleaning” every weekend.  Everything is 10 feet away from where it’s supposed to be so she can clean underneath where it was!  I just try to stay out of her way!

Saturday we went over to my parents place for some BBQ ribs after an afternoon in the backyard, with my mother & aunt.  I found out the hard way that Molson original 16 in a can is a wee bit too carbonated for me, I switched to rum & coke!

Sundays are pretty quiet here.  Kim’s got a few things left on the grocery list.  I made a juice for the week.  Peeled all remaining carrots to BBQ them then keep them handy in the fridge.  BBQ carrots & onion are commonly a vegetable for supper or some type of broccoli dish, I love broccoli!  I’m in the middle of a Blue Jays game at the moment.

That’s our weekend here.  Remember it will be quiet on the blog page until Thursday again, I’ll catch you then!

 

IF YOU’RE HERE FOR THE UPDATE, THAT’S ALL THAT I HAVE FOR YOU TODAY.

 

Another reason for me to NOT buy terrible overpriced Molson beer at the new Mosaic Stadium!  $9 for a regular size can of Pilsner, Coors, or Coors Light……..NOT HAPPENING!

http://regina.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=1167315&binId=1.1165847&playlistPageNum=1#_gus&_gucid=&_gup=Facebook&_gsc=8qmzzbP

No Bushwakker’s or Rebellion?!?  No more beer for me at the new Mosaic stadium!  This no local beer really bugs me since the Saskatchewan Roughriders are a “community owned” team.  I don’t typically drink beer at a game, but lots of others do, & most of them don’t seem to care what it is as long as there is alcohol in it.  This “no community craft beer” rule is a laughable situation.  “Kick the little guy while we let the big corporate Molson Brewing control all & reap the benefits by charging our customers 300% than the store bought price”

If I really need to, I’ll get drunk at home, on craft beer & pay less while doing so.

FYI, I’ve only seen Molson Canadian being consumed by those that have just turned the legal age to drink alcohol or at a football game.  It’s like Fosters beer in Australia, Australians don’t drink much Foster’s beer from what I hear?

 

Haha!  Stone Sour #1 on Billboard hard rock charts.  It was just a matter of time.

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.

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.

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.

INDEPENDENCE . I’M NOT MAD OR ANGRY, I’M FRUSTRATED!

I fell asleep to “The Pretty Reckless” the album “Going to Hell” LANGUAGE!!!

I exercised to “Big Wreck” 4 studio albums, a live EP, & a concert I downloaded for free of them playing 21 songs from the first 2 albums with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. You can’t buy that anywhere.

Monday night I saw the Batman vs. Superman movie. That was a big/loud response from the DC comics franchise to the Marvel comics franchise. For me Batman vs. Superman was hands down better than any Marvel movie & the Marvel movies are really good as well! If you’re on the fence about seeing this movie, get over it & see it! I went in with high expectations & the movie surpassed my expectations! REALLY amazing!

I exercise like mad so I can be more independent. At this point I’m confident I can do more than people think. When I first left the rehabilitation center, I was extremely weak. Our dinner plates were even too heavy for me to lift one of them. Now when I unload the dish washer I grab 3 of them to put away.

I don’t want to be a burden for anyone. I asked Kim for a ride to the movie theater since she had told me she didn’t want to see that movie. All I heard in response was “No, nobody is going to do that.”. She was afraid something might happen to me, because she loves me & I don’t have a cell phone. OK, why do I need a cell phone to be more independent? There was a time before when payphones didn’t even exist, what did those people do? “All my life” I’ve been told I can do anything I want/need to if I put my mind to it. Now so many people, not just my fantastic worrisome wife, are saying “Whoa, you can’t do that?!” Why? Trust me, if I say I can’t or can do it, there’s probably a reason that I’d say that. “Really? 8 or 9 years ago I’d be fine, but now that I’m physically disabled I can’t?” Holy mixed messages Batman! I’ve listened to suggestions from others & that’s great! I’ve chosen to do some & to let the other ones sit & wait.

What’s the point of me busting my butt 5 days a week if I’m being told I can’t do something? How will I learn what I can & can’t do? I learn by failing & trying something different the next time. I’ve been to that movie theater 100s of times in the last 20 years, I know it & I now how to manage myself there, able or disabled. A phone is going to save my life? Since when? I don’t have spider man senses that alert me if something bad is going to happen? Let me fail so I can learn how to succeed! If I say “Hey, I think I can do this?” Let me try, if I can’t do it, I’ll ask for help? I want to be more independent, but now everyone tells me I can’t, but from February 5th 2008 to July 26th 2012 I could do anything. How about for once I’ll tell you what I can or can’t do???

I know me & my limitations. Nobody else does, not even Kim. Thanks Kim, I know you didn’t want to see it, but thank you for taking me. I LOVE YOU!!! MORE THAN YOU’LL EVER KNOW!!!!

I took the rest of my frustration to my exercise & the numbers went up; 1500 crunches, 100 leg lifts, & 60 squats. Yes I’m sore, out of breath, sweaty, & tired. Am I not living up to anyone’s expectations, I don’t know? It sure feels like I’m not! I could sit on the couch all day, just whining & complaining, but that wont fix anything or I could exercise like a mad man & get better. I’m 36 years old, please stop treating me like a child? I’ve listen to everybody for too long. I’ll deal with this cancer $#@$%^$@ “my way”! Please don’t hold me back? What’s the worst that could happen? DEATH! Good grief, the doctors told everyone I would die February 5th, 2008, & they were wrong. I’m here and some people don’t approve of what I’m doing, so I change it, now these other people aren’t happy with what I’m doing to fix this situation. OK, I can’t make everyone happy all of the time. How about I focus on making myself, Kim, our family & close friends happy? Is that OK? “I’ve got to sink before I swim”!

I know this is all out of love & I do appreciate the concern from everyone, but I’ve got this.

I’m not really a fan of award shows, mostly because I have a 2% chance of knowing who the people are since many of them aren’t what I listen to. Video inside the link.

Thank you MLB umpires! You’ve now changed far too many rules. So many that you can now dictate the outcome of a game. Meaningful games in September? They’re only meaningful if you win the games prior to September. That means every game is meaningful. To watch a nail biter of a game with a young 97MPH fastball pitcher allows 1 run & comes away with nothing & then have any team lose on a tremendously moronic call makes a mockery of the game! Again umpires, you can only go up from here………………..unless you’ve changed more rules? No, I’m not being biased. If that determined the outcome of any game, it would’ve been just wrong still! Rule books aren’t allowed on the field? They should be! Every umpire & field manager should have one…………….what with the constant changing of the rules to protect the games stars. It’s a sport, if they’re doing these changes in MLB, lets abolish fighting from the NHL………………you know…………….to protect the stars?

Rant over. That was Tuesday evening. It’s a new world now, you can’t change the past, & they had to lose at some point. No team has gone 162W-0L?!

Screw the critics ..Fans loved it”

Any review on anything should be taken with a grain of salt. Make up your own mind about it. Do you want to follow the crowd, or march to the beat of your own drum? That’s exactly why the majority of this blog is me saying “Hey, I like this, maybe check it out if you like?”

This may be a good way to look at things. I don’t like sub genres. Metal is metal, rock is rock, pop is pop, country is country, EDM is EDM, etc. It’s either good or bad, whatever type of music it is. “You like Lamb of God? You must like everything metal”. Nope, but nice try!

Thursday evening we just hunkered down the couch & watched some TV. Friday was mostly waiting to see “The Watchmen” play at the casino, 2 concerts down & at least 2 more to go. Corey & Jolene stopped by Friday morning with Hannah. They brought some muffins & coffee from Tim Hortons early day but it was good. The Watchmen show was REALLY great! Still nothing has attained the success of seeing “Tool” in Edmonton during August of 2006. I don’t usually sing along during concerts, but it just came out at The Watchmen, that never happens!

Saturday was our Easter with Kim’s family. Her parents came down Friday afternoon & stayed with Sherry & James, but all were here for Easter supper. Ham, corn, & hash brown casserole. Enough cheese & sour cream to cover up the taste of potatoes for me! If they aren’t scalloped, hash brown casserole, poutine, or fries with Ketchup or gravy, there’s a good chance they aren’t on my plate!

I can’t wait for summer! Regular season baseball with the air conditioning on full blast so it feels like a meat locker in here! It hit 25 degrees Celsius in here with the blinds closed! If it’s over 23 I sweat just sitting on the couch doing nothing.

Just had Easter Sunday supper with my grandparents & more family members at my grandparents condo…………………& who doesn’t like their grandmothers cooking!? Turkey ( I can eat it with gravy & stuffing, but I do prefer ham), stuffing, gravy, carrots, & mashed potatoes. There’s not enough gravy in the world for me to even consider eating mashed potatoes!

Only thing missing from the turkey suppers this weekend? TURNIPS!

Ian Fletcher Thornley royal screwed up his own song released in 1997!

ORIGINAL BELOW!!!!!!!!!!!

This is the 1 song I don’t like from his solo album. I’ll take the version from 1997 any day!

As much as I’m not a fan of Disturbed, I totally agree with this! Put your phone away for 2 hours & watch a concert with your EYES! I think I just blew everyone’s mind!! You’re welcome, you needed it! Video inside the link containing LANGUAGE!!!!

Here are a few cover songs followed by the original version

^^That snare drum is close to the snare drum sound on Metallica’s ‘St. Anger’. That’s not a good thing. I think Bob Rock produced that Metallica album & did nothing but collect a paycheck.

There are plenty more out there, but these are some you may not have known about.

Some “Third Ion” for you. From the upcoming/2nd album.

OK, just stop bashing Ben Affleck because I have also heard the exact opposite from some comic book website that proclaimed him the “Best Batman yet”! Who do you trust more in this scenario? Comic book fans or critics that sit upon their pedestal, look down their nose and say “Oh, rubbish”? I’ll take the hard core comic book fans. Face it, you’ve already decided months ago if you’re going to see it or not. I still plan on seeing it or just buying it on blu-ray! Just because someone’s title is “film critic” doesn’t mean they’re right. All it means is they watch a lot of movies! Has any “Star Wars” movie ever been handed an Academy Award?………..NO! Has the franchise ranked in a PILE of money?…YES!!!

When you see an incredible concert like The Watchmen on Good Friday, it becomes a Great/Wonderful Friday & you ask yourself “Why don’t I listen to their CDs more often?” Because I’m an idiot!

I don’t think anyone would think going to war would be remotely close to a walk in the park!

Alter Bridge are finishing the bass tracks for their 5th studio album!!!!!!!!

Via Elvis: “Finishing our last day of bass on the new Alter Bridge”

3 hours later

ABV Bass is complete and I cannot say enough about this production team. Tones are sick and they make recording simply seamless. Thanks guys.. Can’t wait for y’all to hear these tracks!!”

That usually means guitar & vocals left to record!!!!!!!!!!!

He was a member of “Smashing Pumpkins” I guess now he’s rejoining the band! Does this mean “A Perfect Circle” is done? Or will he do both?

VETERANS

 

I fell asleep to “Pearl Jam” their first major release “Ten”

I exercised to “My Morning Jacket” the album “Z”

Seeing them live was a totally different experience. They opened for Foo Fighters in Edmonton in 2003.

Veterans from any war or those currently enlisted deserve nothing but the best from the rest of the country. If your living in any country speaking the native language & are free to do as you please, without breaking the law, thank your veterans! I don’t like hearing about any war, but I guess it’s a necessary evil. So a HUGE THANK YOU to those who put their lives on the line to make the rest of us feel safe..

The one lyric that makes me laugh, on the newest release by “Dream Theater” is “…people just don’t have time for music anymore…”. I REALLY like Dream Theater, but why don’t people have time for music anymore? Because a Dream Theater album will be 9 songs all averaging 7-12 minutes long. On this latest release the songs average 4-5 minutes, but there are 34 songs. It takes 3 hours roughly to hear the album front to back! I could be half way to Winnipeg in that time?

Pro GMO

http://www.macleans.ca/society/science/in-praise-of-genetically-modified-foods/

A & W took a stand by advertising their meat as having no steroids or antibiotics used in their burgers. Great! Now if the chicken, cow or fish gets sick you either get infected/ill meat or the animal in question is killed for no reason because they can’t sell sick livestock. I’m sure I didn’t get cancer because I was consuming GMOs, if that was the case, why are the majority of people on earth not getting cancer?

I Mother Earth shared it…..

In Flames shared it….

Just trolling around www.youtube.com & found a few interesting Foo Fighters things. Pat Smear & Dave Grohl stalk the deceased David Bowie. LANGUAGE!!!!!

Apparently the best Foo Fighters interview ever.

I hated grunge & metal music when they were all the rage. I was into a few heavier bands when they came out like “I Mother Earth” & “Our Lady Peace”. Now it’s all metal & grunge for me, with a nice sprinkling of other stuff, mostly pop. Everything in moderation for me musically. When Grunge music was the big thing in the ’90s I was listening to “Barenaked Ladies”, “U2”, “Hootie & The Blowfish”, “Micheal Jackson”, etc. & I still do other than “Hootie & The Blowfish. Then I became a big fan of “Queen” & “Foo Fighters” then, slowly I got into the heavier stuff. My dad had some “Queen” when I was younger, I listened to it in the car, wasn’t a huge fan………………….yet!
