I fell asleep to “Megadeth” the album “Dystopia”, “Megadeth” the album “Peace Sells….but Who’s Buying?” & finally “Pearl Jam” the album “Yield”

I exercised to “Pink” the album “Beautiful Trauma”


After 2 days of being struck with a head cold & a weekend, my exercises were very difficult on Monday.  Tuesday evening we look at Brewster’s teeth, the little furry guy needs a cleaning & perhaps a few teeth removed, we’ll find out the price tonight!  The Finger Eleven & I Mother Earth concert looks as though it’s very unattainable now.  It may cost less than Brewster’s teeth, as Kim pointed out. It’s one of the 2 cheaper concerts of the 4.  Brewster & Kim are priority number 1 in this house!  I didn’t sleep well last night, I was stressing pretty hard, more worried about Brewster than anything.

I tried to watch the Super Bowl, sounded like an entertaining game.  4 hours of football is just too much for me.  I recorded it to see/hear Pink do the national anthem & Justin Timberlake at half time.  Even if the Canadian Football League goes into over time I get antsy.

Look this up on your channel guide, CFL scheduled for 3 hours, Major League Baseball scheduled for 3 hours, NFL scheduled for 4 hours!  Curling, golf, hockey, basketball, NASCAR, Indy car, etc.  I don’t watch those sports.  I watch the Toronto Blue Jays & the Canadian Football League.  I can’t watch 4 hours of football, however a 6 hour baseball game I can manage that no problem.

I know it’s odd, so here’s why.  With every single batter, each fielder has to think ahead as to what or where they are going to be with each pitch.  It’s a reaction sport.  Is the batter going to bunt, hit for contact, swing for the fence, how many outs are there, what base(s) have runners, where do I need to be if it’s hit towards these areas, etc.

I don’t know much about other sports, since I didn’t play them but I think along with the players when I watch baseball.  That may be a good reason as to why so many people get so bored?  I understand where they’re coming from.

The actual game I recorded to watch the musical performances.  I was also recording the movie “Lucy”.  It was on TV.  After being told it was terrible by friends of mine, I figured, “It’s free & there’s really nothing else on but the Super Bowl”.  I didn’t love the movie, & I didn’t hate the movie.  I thought it was OK.  I don’t need to watch it again.  Decent movie to rent though.  Another science fiction movie, leave logic at the door!



Thanks , but I’ll be the judge for ranking 1 of my 2 favourite bands catalogue!

I’ve listened to it again, very focused on it!  First listen to it last night, I thought I had put my iPod on The Beach Boys, because of all of the harmonies.  The production was my main problem.  One of the songs has SO much reverb on the lead vocals that Dave Grohl sounds as if he’s 50 yards away from the microphone in a cargo container.  The album is full of multiple harmonies, which I like, just not on a rock album.  The songs, some of them, are just lacking something.  That or I put my expectations too high!  Paul McCartney plays drums on a song that drummer Taylor Hawkins wrote & sang lead vocals on called “Sunday Rain” good tune.  Justin Timberlake sings back up on a song called “Make it Right”.  The title song, last song on the album, was described as sounding like a Black Sabbath tune.  It does, but it’s a slow depressing song with one of the guys from Boys II Men singing multiple vocal tracks to sound like a choir in the background.

Not their best album, but not terrible either!

Diets, they have their place.  In the end it comes to self-control & will power.  I’m not considering ever going on a diet.  I exercise 5 days a week (not at the moment with my pinched nerve) & I watch what I eat & as far as alcohol goes 2 drink on Friday & 2 on Saturday.  Some weekends nothing at the odd celebration 3 or 4.  My meals are fairly healthy as well.  Hardboiled egg & a juice I’ve made of fruits & vegetables for breakfast, usually a fish filet for lunch or something like a chicken breast & quinoa.  Then supper which is also healthy since my wife is watching her weight as well.  We try not to keep stuff full of sugar or fat in the house, & we rarely have bread around.  We’re not the healthiest people in the world, we eat potato chips, chocolate, & other junk food.  Just everything in moderation.

For me, having survived cancer was a good wake up call.  I got lucky & got a second chance at life.  I figure I should pay close attention to what nourishment I put in my body.  I don’t eat stuff I don’t like, I try to find a healthier option.  As for exercise, I’ve got the time to do it!

I understand the need for a weight loss program but you won’t eat that way forever.  It’s more of a push in the right direction to choose your options wisely when eating or going to the grocery store.

I graduated high school in June 1998 at 185 pounds.  For me to be under 215 or 220 would look weird.  I don’t really know what I am weight wise at the moment, I’m guessing I’m still around the 230 area?  The exercise I do is more for me being more mobile & independent surviving cancer, the weight loss is more of a byproduct.

Yes, it is slightly more expensive to eat healthy but I think it’s worth it.  I’d rather die much later than sooner!

I reached all of my exercise goals this week.  I’ve been tired a bit more than usual this week.  I like getting up somewhere between 6:00 am and 6:30 am or at least by 7:00 am, which happened most of the week other than Thursday.  Kim woke me up multiple times before she left for work.  I slept in until 8:00 am.  The entire day I felt like I was chasing the day!  My exercises take a bit longer & I had other stuff I wanted to get done.

7500 crunches, 600 squats, 500 leg lifts, & 500 pushups in a 5 day week.

Every day of the week starts with 60 squats, a 3 minute rest, 60 more squats, 50 leg lifts on my back, 1500 crunches.  Then 50 more leg lifts on my hands & knees, then 100 pushups.

Once that’s done I have coffee, my blende juice of fruits & vegetables, & I always have a 700 ml of water with me.  During the day I have a minimum of 2.1 liters of water, & that’s why I pee so much.  Then I either shower, write a blog post, or vice versa.


I really like this rock album.  I like this trend of females fronting groups.  For me, it’s a welcome change of pace.  Interview with Taylor Momsen of “The Pretty Reckless”


Justin Timberlake as a guest on Jimmy Fallon


Phil Collins on Jimmy Fallon, no pressure Questlove!


I love “Criminal Minds”!!!!!


There is good country music out there, but it’s not something I’d listen to very often.  That being said the good music of any genres is hard to find.  I don’t like a metal group just because they’re heavy?  I listen to pop, rock, & metal, & then whatever catches my ear.  Example; I really like “Dixie Chicks” Kim has their albums, I like them.  I don’t listen to them often, but they’re on my iPod for when I’d like to hear something different.  Honestly, I’ve never heard a country song that gets me excited or think “Oh man, I have to get that album!!!!!!”


I’m not sure if I’ve shared this review before, I know I’ve watched it though.  No it’s not “Alter Bridge”, it’s “Opeth”


I guess this is Muse’s Halloween surprise.


Metallica album teaser.  I think I’ll be getting this album.  It’s only taken 33 years for me to enjoy an entire Metallica album!  Still a wait & see album for me

On the previous link to this blog I was EXTREMELY rude. I apologize & take full responsibility for all of that. I don’t want to be that person & I never have been that person before. Thank you all for not abandoning me! You’re all AMAZING individuals! I can’t change the past, if I could I would do so in a heartbeat, THANK YOU!! I would have “unliked” myself on facebook & reported my email as SPAM. To be clear nobody did anything wrong, other than me! I can forgive & forget everyone for everything but when it comes to myself acting like that, remembering that is how I learn. Whatever I do wrong stays with me. It’s in the past & thank you all for being the bigger person! You’re all really AWESOME!

Today’s workout was brought to you by the letter “O” as in Opeth’s album “Blackwater Park”

This type of thing has happened to many candidates in the recent past George Bush Jr used Foo Fighters “Times Like These”, without permission, for his campaign. Foo Fighters toured with his opponent instead of taking the song away from Bush.

Mark Tremonti article/interview on the current tour & Alter Bridge plans, etc………

Iron Maiden began in 1975, but now there’s a problem with “Eddie” their mascot who appears on most of their album covers? How about not looking at it? That would be easier than trashing them.

Third Ion had another review. The review was in French & my French is terrible. If you don’t use it, you lose it.

I love John Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight”. I almost want HBO, just far too expensive LANGUAGE!!!!

Muse’s album “Drones” was just very disappointing to me. How do you go from this to that? Good thing the music is good! LANGUAGE IN THE 2ND VIDEO!

New Apple TV box. They’ll release & a month later they’ll release another, & forget about the issues it may cause. “Just like…” they did with the release of Apple Music & forgot about iTunes Match users

Article with Barenaked Ladies & sneak peek at their new video. Album out June 2nd

I hope all of the people wanting legal marijuana laws all voted! If they didn’t, like I never do, they don’t have the right to complain about what the government does. If people want it & voted whine & cry about it all you want. If they didn’t vote better off not to complain, I’m not supposed to since I don’t vote, & I don’t really care about this current hot topic. I’ve tried it & I don’t want or need it. All the power to those who like/want/need it.

I can’t believe this was already 3 years ago!? Feels like he died 3 months ago!?

I’m starting to really enjoy this album

June has 4 album’s I plan on getting from iTunes. 3 of them are pre-ordered already. Muse, Barenaked Ladies, Walk off the Earth & Tremonti. Tremonti is not available for pre-order on iTunes at the moment.

Adam Jones shares Tool teaser from the studio. I don’t buy it until they announce an official release date!

I guess……………………………….if I have to………………………….I will. It’s May the 4th (be with you) which is 2 days before May 6th (Revenge of the Sith). 30 awesome ‘Star Wars’ moments

Standard Testing

I have nothing but respect for teachers! Most people have 1 teacher they will never forget. I have many, at least 5-10, including Mr. & Mme. Fletcher, Mme. Winter, Mr. Wilkinson, etc. So with nothing but respect for teachers, when was the last time you used long division outside of your job? I haven’t used it since University when I was in Engineering. Teachers tell you to learn this or that. What they’re really teaching you is how to continue learning once you have finished school & how to deal with what reality will throw at you.

Halestorm’s rig rundown.

I had far too many foot pedals. They’re fun for a while but after a while you get bored. I only really needed my tuner pedal, my wah pedal, noise compressor & digital delay pedal on stage. I had about 3 or 4 other foot pedals. Metal Zone pedal, phaser pedal, equalizer pedal & a chorus pedal which I used very rarely.
