Friday ended with me slow roasting on the couch.  Until my father & cousin got here, so the 3 of us could go to the casino to see Barenaked Ladies!!!!  FANTASTIC show as usual.  They were my first concert in 1992.  I was not expecting to hear a pop music medley of many songs including, Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber & many more, a death metal improvised rap, Violent Femmes cover, or a singer/drummer switch for the encore & a Led Zeppelin cover!  They played 4 or 5 songs from their new album.  Most of the show consisted of material from their first 3 albums, & a medley of cover songs.  If they’re coming to town, you know where I’ll be.  I don’t know if I’ve ever missed one of their shows in Regina.

Saturday was incredibly lazy.  Kim did some Christmas shopping with her sister.  I wasted 4 hours watching 2 terrible movies.  Thank goodness they were on Netflix or I’d be asking for my money & 4 hours of my life back!  All I need is the 4 hours back.  Then we watched “Wind River” if you like the movie “Fargo” I would say “Wind River” is a must see.  Similar story sort of, with much more dialogue.

I REALLY wanted to see this movie & it exceeded my expectations!

Sunday was the 2 of us sleeping in, followed by getting the house ready for our Christmas tree & watching the Grey Cup here!  The right team won, for me!  As long as Calgary, B.C. or Montreal isn’t in the mix, I’m as happy as can be!  Especially since Toronto beat my hometown Riders to get to the Grey Cup!  If we get dumped out of the playoffs, whoever beat Saskatchewan better win the entire thing.

Today is Christmas day tree & Kim has dropped hints about listening to Christmas music.  Well you have to listen to Christmas music when putting up the tree!  At least in my family!

Once the tree is done I’ll get to my top 10 albums of the year, only one metal album purchased this year, also a Foo Fighters, Big Wreck, & Queens of the Stone Age album.  Number 1 & 2 might surprise you.  Alas, I’m done purchasing music this year.

 

BARENAKED LADIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Absolutely the best Barenaked Ladies show I have ever seen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  They were touring in support of their new album ‘Fake Nudes’.  Which has some REALLY good songs, with typical BNL songs.

 

The concert was full of older/familiar songs with these 5 songs ^^^ songs sprinkled into the mix.

Then the show got really good/weird with some cover songs & medley of current hit songs!

They did a REALLY good job of this song with the drummer & singer switching places for the encore!

 

I’m biased though.  Take this with a grain of salt.  They were my first concert at the age of 12 in 1992.  All of that being said, I’ve seen them quite a few times but this was the best BNL show I have ever seen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I fell asleep to “In Flames” the new live album “Sounds from the heart of Gothenburg” then “The Pretty Reckless” the new album “Prisoners”

I exercised to “Into Eternity” all 5 albums on shuffle

I had to fill my pill cases & I put on “Third Ion” their 2nd album “Biolith”

Yes, I got up shortly after 6:20 am did my exercises, achieved my exercise goals, showered of course.  Filled my pill cases & once this is done I’ll be free!  My mother’s coming over for coffee.  That will be a nice break in the day for me.  I wasn’t nearly as tired today as I was yesterday.  Somewhat sore though.

I was incredibly tired Monday & Tuesday!  Maybe it’s just because I increased my exercises or that it’s the fall season?  “My mind says go & do this, my body says no”.  I’ll be 37 on January 30th, who the heck ever thought they’d be that old?  My body is screaming “SLOW DOWN DRIVER!!!”  My mind says “HURRY UP YOU NINCOMPOOP!!!!”  When I sit down to rest, I feel guilty & that I should be doing something.  At the same time I’ve probably just drained the tank…………………………..no  I don’t pee my pants……………….wrong tank!

I ordered the physical copy of “In Flames” on the Canadian amazon site.  It came with a DVD or Blu-ray.  It was released I think on October 1st.  My mother has next day shipping so I asked her if she could order it for me.  The Blu-ray had a ton of region restrictions, so I ordered the DVD which had no restrictions.  Unfortunately the DVD had the same restrictions, they weren’t on the website.  The parcel was delivered yesterday since it was shipped from Germany.  I would have got it on iTunes, but it’s not on Canadian iTunes.  Luckily my father has a DVD player from overseas.  I’ll have to email him.

 

I don’t watch “Horror” films, I’m not a big fan of Halloween either.  Seems to more effort for little gain or I’m just lazy?  Consequence of Sound’s Masterpiece review of the movie “Halloween”

Another “Alter Bridge” behind the song.

I gotta say I listen to this album more than you think.  Good thing “Foo Fighters” took a year off.  However “Big Wreck” may be releasing an album in the near future?

MONDAYS ARE DIFFICULT!

SURPRISE! PLANS CHANGED! The internet was fairly quiet today, so here it is.

I fell asleep to “Scream”the album “Fumble”

Yes, that’s a young Dave Grohl. “Scream” is the group he dropped out of high school for & was a member of right before he joined “Nirvana”.

I know I said I wasn’t going to do a post today. My wheelchair was supposed to go in for a cleaning & some minor repair work. The second I woke up my stomach was doing some weird stuff? I felt sick. Thought I’d have a bucket beside me all day? I feel fine & I’ve had breakfast that stayed down. Kim called the company for my chair & canceled the appointment for my chair to go in. Better off safe than “sorry”. I’ve got my chair & I feel fine. I guess we’ll schedule it for another day. I’m leary about working out today though, just in case…better to be safe than covered in vomit.

That short time of 2 or 3 days off really makes my muscles sore. After 200 crunches, then things feel OK. I do my squats, 70 leg lifts on my back, then crunches. Followed by 70 leg lifts on my hands & knees, then the push ups that just about kill me. Squats & push ups are by far the most challenging things I do. Squats leave me breathless for a few minutes & push ups are always last or else I don’t have the energy left to do anything else.

Professional sports don’t have a gay problem. The straight individuals in charge have a problem! They can’t accept that not everyone is the same. Yet, somehow Ty Cobb was a notorious jerk, also known for violence and robbery. Yet he’s in the baseball Hall of Fame?

Music rip offs

Another suggestion from a reader. I looked them up & Chevelle was recommended, I’d say that’s a pretty good comparison. “Stellar Circuits” one 5 song EP & 2 singles on iTunes. I haven’t bought anything, but I might?

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver…………………& this is why Quebec won’t abandon Canada. It’s like opening a can of worms. Quebec is a big part of being Canadian!

LAGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alter Bridge shared it……………..new album in September I hear?

I got Batman vs. Superman last night from iTunes since they had the “Ultimate Edition” I was planning on buying, available on blu-ray & DVD July 19th and also for renting on iTunes that day.

The Pretty Reckless shared the iTunes link to this album…

GIVE THEM ALL THE GUNS THEY WANT

I fell asleep to “Lacuna Coil” the entire new album “Delirium” then “Lamb of God” the album “Ashes of the Wake”

I exercised to “Me First & The Gimme Gimmes” 8 albums on shuffle. 5 punk rockers covering famous songs. Chris Shifflet of Foo Fighters is the lead guitarist.

Give them as many guns as they want & tax ammunition 200% & raise the price on it to $100.00 a box, or higher! This could go two ways. America could take a chunk out of their debt or gun owners will either stop shooting people, or save their money for an ammo shopping spree!

I was really excited for “Drones” by Muse, didn’t pan out like I had thought it would? It’s not terrible but it’s not a typical Muse album.

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.

DAY LIGHT SAVINGS TIME

I fell asleep to “Soundgarden” the album “Badmotorfinger” after most of “In Flames” album “Soundtrack to your Escape” then the first album of the double album of “The Beatles” album “The White” album

I exercised to “Foo Fighters” the album “There is Nothing Left to Lose”

The 3rd album containing the first mistake they made, in my opinion. Most Foo Fighters fans love this song & sing along to it. I think last year was the first time I’ve seen them not play since the release of this album in November of ’99.

^^That’s Dave Grohl’s mother that flips him the middle finger at the beginning. He had to teach her how to do it, from what I heard at the time.

Here’s the deal. If I have to shave my face, the top of my head will be bald also, if not the beard comes back. My hair is down to ¼ or ½ inch, being completely bald isn’t that far away! Those are now the rules, shaving sucks or blows, whatever is worse!

1 DOWN 161 TO GO

I fell asleep to “David Bowie” a Greatest Hits compilation.

For exercise I first put on “Better Than Ezra” the 13 song album “Friction Baby” when that played through I put on “The Birds of Satan” their only/self titled album (Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins’ side project, where he plays the drum & sings).

^^I bought the CD in high school in the $0.01 deal from BMG or Columbia House. I think I went back & forth 4 times on those deals after I had full filled my 3 purchases of $28.99? I remember subscribing to both twice.

1000 crunches is the new daily exercise goal with a 2 other exercises afterwards! If Kevin Hart can do it, there’s no reason I can’t, I’ve got the time

A great start to what will be a good story “win or lose” for the Toronto Blue Jays. 8 complete innings pitched by 24 years young pitcher Marcus Stroman followed by the 9th inning closer 21 years young Roberto Osuna. 2 run home run by short stop Troy Tulowitzki in a 5-3 win for the Toronto Blue Jays. Only 161 games to go until the last 2 at the beginning of October. Plus the playoffs if that happens? Water & grapes aren’t necessarily baseball food, it just feels wrong? Troy Tulowitzki first home run of all players in 2016.

I’m helping Kim out with the cleaning here more & more. I’ve been assigned bathroom duty. (Hahaha, I said doodie). I finished one washroom and moving on to the second bathroom on Sunday, all the while singing & rocking/headbanging to “…done, done on to the next one. Done I’m done & I’m on to the next one. Done, done on to the next one. Done I’m done & I’m on to the next…”. All of this was before my overflowing joy after a Blue Jay win!

I’ll let you know right now it’s summer which means I won’t be as consistent with my blogging. Wednesday’s blog may be a little bit later due to an afternoon baseball game. Don’t people work on Wednesdays? Thursday you might get a 4 day exercise total with a dash of music news? Friday, & Saturday, I’m not even going to pretend there’s a computer in here. I’ll catch you on Sunday with what could be a looong weekend update after the 3rd baseball game in Toronto that day against the visiting Boston Red Sox.

Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine checks out the School of Rock.

I know nothing about her or her music but it’s good to hear she’s taking a stand by saying ‘Hey, this isn’t right’ basically.

I don’t consider “Tool” a metal group but that was a fantastic album!!!

I’m not much of a Jonny Depp fan in any roll. I guess he’s a big enough star that he can afford to do what he likes, so he’s giving music a shot………………….wait…………………wasn’t he complaining about actors crossing over into music & vice versa? Yes, yes he was, but that was months ago nobody will remember that.

I’m not much of a country music fan, but my wife is, so I hear it on occasion. Fine by me, I tune it out. We have this recorded & haven’t had time to watch it yet.

Royal Blood, a pleasant surprise for most rock fans!!!! “Wait,….I’m going to see Foo Fighters with my dad? Royal Blood is the opener? AWESOME! What else is going to happen, my jaw won’t go further down? Road trip to Calgary to see my aunts & uncles with Kim, & a boat load of cheaply priced liquor!?!” That was an awesome but quick trip last summer! There was also a day with a hand full of brewery tours!

Why would anyone care about Bieber’s hair being dreads? Is the world just picking out things to complain about with him? He’ll shave it off when he gets bored with it, then everyone can complain about him being bald? ‘Cause the hair style changes everything!?!?

Consequence of Sound ask what would be your walk up to home plate for an at bat now that baseball has started? This would be mine if we could pretend I’d hit or have the ability to play this position? 3rd base is where I lived & was a guaranteed out for the opposing team!
