I fell asleep to “Alter Bridge” their 2nd album “Blackbird” followed by “Green Day” the latest album “Revolution Radio” then “Live” the album “The Turn” released in 2014 with a new singer.  I didn’t sleep well last night between getting up to pee & just not being able to fall back asleep. I ended up sleeping until 9:00 am.  I prefer to get up at 7:30 am at the latest during the week.

I exercised to “Rage Against the Machine” 3 albums on shuffle.

2 things happened on November 8th 2016 in the USA.  America got their first orange President & late night talk show hosts got a pile of material for the next 4 years.

I keeping my exercise goals right where they are at the moment.  My pushups are the last exercise I do.  I leave them for the end because they are my most difficult exercise & they completely drain me.  Today’s pushups weren’t nearly as difficult as yesterdays.  Everything’s coming, it’s just a slow process.  Writing this blog kept me bluntly honest & that faded a bit.  The promise of breakfast is now included in keeping me honest.  I don’t lie about my exercise, I just needed more motivation.  So far it has been a good week aka I’ve reached my daily goals.  Sure they’re difficult & time consuming.  I’m not about to do nothing & plant myself on the couch.  I’ve got time to fix myself!  I’m not OK with the status quo for me.  I need & want to get better.  Somebody telling me I can’t do it or that I’m doing too much just makes me want to prove them wrong.

I know people with a job & kids don’t have the luxury of ample time to exercise as much as I do, & I don’t expect them to.  I’d say try to eat healthy & squeeze in some exercise if & when possible, even if it’s 5 minutes.  Turn on the TV, watch a ½ hour show while doing an exercise if you have energy after the kids are in bed.  You’ll have to make time for it though.  Exercise was the furthest thing from my mind until I HAD to do it daily, so I understand the lack of motivation & time most people have.

I hate exercising until I finish it.  That’s why I start it first thing in the morning.  Immediately out of the bedroom 60 squats, & hopefully my water bottle is full or else I fill it during my 3 minute rest period before I do 60 more quats.

Today was another early morning after a long night got to bed around midnight, listened to roughly 2 ½ albums on my iPod. Woke up just before 6:00 am to pee, I was up I figured I might as well stay up & get going? Turned on the stereo & started putting dishes away that I took care of for Kim after supper, did the dishwasher that was full & ran last night & washed a few by hand since I made a breakfast juice last night & needed the pitcher for it. I’ve turned into a morning person Kim wakes me up during the week either before she gets ready for work or as she’s leaving for work. I like to get my workout/breakfast smoothie done ASAP so I can get this done & relax for the rest of the day ( around 2:00 pm or a bit later) is when I hit the couch & watch the late night talk shows I’ve recorded from the previous night. As soon as Kim gets home we watch “The Ellen Degeneres Show” together. I watch Jimmy Fallon, Conan O’Brien & Netflix if there’s time for it before she gets home. I keep busy with my workout, Brewster, & this blog before I get to relax! Weekends I occasionally sleep in past 9:30 am. I listened to the newest “Anthrax” album “For All Kings” at a reasonable volume, not 11!

Just when I thought Major League Baseball umpires had hit the bottom, they prove me wrong & keep digging. I think any fan, player or manager watching the Chicago White Sox playing the Toronto Blue Jays last night would have been absolutely disgusted with the very inconsistent strike zone. When the back catchers, hitters, pitchers, live spectators, TV spectators, and managers from both teams question you as to why the same pitch was a strike or ball 3 pitches ago is now the opposite, wouldn’t an umpire begin to think that he might be off a bit. Then you go & throw a manager out of the game for asking a question to a different umpire? The Blue Jays would have lost anyways but it shouldn’t have been 4-0, I’ll say 3-0 at the worst, the fourth run was laughable, & who knows what the other miscalls would have been? The entire game was a joke at best. Keep “..digging your hole..” umpires, I guess you haven’t hit rock bottom yet?

As much as I like Foo Fighters I’ve only seen them 4 times, that’s the same amount that I’ve seen Trivium? I like Trivium but they’re not Foo Fighters! I try to never miss a Big Wreck show in town. When I went to see them in ’99-2002 they were here about 3 or 4 times a year & I saw them each & everytime. Even when I was in the hospital, Kim & I would take Para Transit or our wheelchair van to see ‘Thornley’ in town a few times, the lead singer’s band while Big Wreck had broken up for a decade.

Halestorm’s Facebook site has turned me on to other artists I likely wouldn’t know about. They recommended ‘Highly Suspect’, who was nominated for a Grammy for Best Rock Album for their debut album “Mr. Asylum”. I can’t think of another rock group who has been a Grammy nominee for their debut album? That’s impressive for a rock band, especially now that rock music isn’t ‘cool’ right now.

These 2 were in opposing bands in the ’90s & were mortal enemies back then. I never listened to “Blur” or “Gorillaz”. Oasis was FANTASTIC though!

Streaming music has too many red flags for me. Sure you can listen to streaming music on Apple. You are literally putting money into a radio or jukebox. Once you’ve heard the song you have to keep paying for it, or else it’s gone. All of these streaming sites get me a little worried because as a music fan I want to own my music. I don’t want to wake up on the 1st of every month & say “Well time to pay for that radio station subscription again”. If a band goes on tour to promote their new album they need to go to the little spots, Saskatchewan, Manitoba or Alberta. Anywhere else I’m not going. I’ll go 2.5, 8, 9 or 6 hours away by car to see a concert. If it’s not within that area, I’m not going. I would hope they figure out how to pay artists for their craft with people downloading it from iTunes? You’ve always had a way to purchase or own your music. 8 tracks, cassettes, vinyl, CD & digital formats. If streaming becomes the only way to get music, I’m out.

I really don’t see the point in getting angry & talking about whatever behind someones back, that won’t solve anything. Sure “flaws” are easy to find in others & being blunt is usually not the best way to go about things. Anyone could easily find “flaws” with me, I’m certainly not perfect & never will be. So why bother being angry at all? I don’t want to be that person ever again. I wasn’t like that before, so I can’t explain why I was like that in the previous link to this blog?

There is a difference between being blunt or being rude. I just put those 2 together, & it’s not needed. Likely the 2 least favored qualities put together!

This was part of Canada’s response to the “grunge” music in Seattle in the early ’90s.

Unfortunately I don’t see the murders in Charleston changing anything. Mass shootings in a high school, outside of a mall, elementary school, movie theater & now a church. So where are you safe & not constantly looking over your shoulder? LANGUAGE IN JON OLIVER LINK!!!!

Just take the flags down already!
