I fell asleep to “Ed Sheeran” the album “Divide”

I exercised to “Metallica” the new album “Hardwired……………….to Self-Destruct”


400 leg lifts, 160 pushups, planking, yoga, 200 crunches & 80 back flexes this past week.

That’s 100 leg lifts, 40 pushups, 20 back flexes, planking, 100 crunches & yoga 5 days a week.  First thing I do when I leave the bedroom, then breakfast & a shower.

I just added the crunches on Thursday, 100 crunches a day.  The crunches had nothing to do with my back!  I know what caused it, I’ve had back issues since high school.  My wheelchair seat was over inflated & the squats always hurt my back a bit.  So I’m going to continue doing 100 crunches a day.  I could also just twist in my seat to borrow a pen & my back would go out?  That’s what happened in grade 10?

Kim had Wednesday off, so I took it off too.  I got in the shower while she went out to get coffees & cinnamon buns.  We sat on the balcony before it got too warm.  I can’t get out there in my wheelchair.  Kim has to help me, or I can crawl out if needed.  Came inside watched a bit of TV.  Kim went for a roller blade.  She showered, we watched a little more TV, and then we went to see “Wonder Woman” in the comfy recliners at the Southland Mall.  I don’t know where it came from but we had a movie pass that we used today!

I spent 1 day a week, for almost exactly a year being in the pool during my physiotherapy.  I can’t swim anymore.  I was lowered into the pool by what’s called a “Hoyer” lift.  It’s basically a crane for people who can’t walk.  Once I was in the pool there’s a rail all the way around the pool for me to hold on to.  I was able to walk & do some different physio exercises, all while holding on to the rail.  The pool is only 5 feet deep & it’s heated.  It’s quite a bit like a warm bath.  I would walk to each side of the pool holding the railing.  I’d float on my back with weights on my feet & I was to kick my feet during that time.  One leg is stronger than the other, I’d kick my feet & go in circles.  My therapist had me try a different walker in the pool as well, that didn’t work out to well.


If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today.


Remember “covfefe = coffee in Russian”


Sad that Ed Sheeran’s tune fits with Disturbed vocals


If this is recorded I hope it’s different than this performance!


Ozzy Osbourne & Nine Inch Nails to headline festival!



Wanna hear/see a clip of every “Muse” song on bass?  Looks impressive!


The first thing I thought when I heard Foo Fighters single “Run” was “Oh my, the riff really reminds me of Pearl Jam’s tune ‘Spin the Black Circle”


Another tribute to Chris Cornell.  This time a song by “Audioslave” shared by www.loudwire.com


20 songs produced by Kanye West, that I’ve never heard?  Rap isn’t my thing.  His birthday was Thursday!



The songs “Madness” & “Dig Down” by Muse are done with an electric bass I have never seen anyone else use.


Cool!  Another great tune from the new “Royal Blood” album.  This & Big Wreck were/are my most anticipated album of 2017, until I found out Foo Fighters’ may have a release this year.  Royal Blood is not a metal band, if you’re worried about that.  The singer plays a distorted electric bass & the other member of the group plays drums.  That’s all, just the 2 of them!


What happens when, Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park, reacts to teens’ reaction of the new Linkin Park!  Hahahahahahahahahahaha!

Sorry, a little late today did my exercise, then had breakfast & flipped on CNN.  It was difficult to peel my eyes away from the TV.  It’s like watching a bad car crash.  Looks like the world has never been so divided.

Don’t feel as though you have to click on every link.

I figure it’s close to the holidays, so 1-3 more blogs & my list of albums of the year should do it for 2016.  Yes, I already know what my New Year’s resolution is & I don’t make resolutions often.  I plan to add cardio to my exercise list.  Recumbent exercise bike or walking with my walker every Saturday morning.  I’ll need help & Kim has agreed to go with me.  We can walk in the parkade &  I’ll need help on & off the exercise bike.  Of course I’ll be doing that here.  No point in me spending money on a gym membership when I can do that here!

This pinched nerve thing can go away anytime.  It felt really as though it was “on the mend” during the week then on Saturday evening watching a movie with Kim, I had to ask her if she could move to the other couch so that I could lay down on my side.  At the moment it’s nearing 7:00 am on Sunday, December 11, 2016.  I’ve listen to 2.5 albums on my iPod while trying to get comfortable in bed, got up, shaved, had breakfast, poured a coffee, & now I’m here.  Waking up because of pain that early, not cool.

Tuesday evening, saw my chiropractor today & he’s confused as to why it hasn’t healed?  Another message therapy & another chiropractor appointment if needed.  4 weeks down the toilet exercise wise.


And all of the disbelievers will rant about how this is such a waste of time.

Canada tends to get the typical “Canadian” tour from most groups.  Montreal, Toronto, & Vancouver.  All are minimum a 2 or 3 day drive from Saskatchewan.  As much as I love live music, there’s no way I could justify sitting in a vehicle that long for a concert, & flying is too expensive!

I fell asleep to “Taylor Hawkins” 6 song EP.  Yes, he plays drums & sings.  He does the same with Foo Fighters, most of the backup singing on Foo Fighters albums or live are Taylor.  After that EP I put on “Alter Bridge” the new album again “The Last Hero”

Until this literal pain in my arse goes away.  It will be a very tame/quiet week.  I’ll continue to blog though, more stuff about my day & of course pop culture stuff.  Brewster’s new kennel didn’t get here on Friday, Kim may have to pick it up on her “…way home…”   I’m hoping to get “back in the saddle” by tomorrow.  I guess I’ll see what happens?


Here’s a sample of what I’ve been listening to while massaging my butt with a vibrator & stretching, stupid delete button isn’t working.  That didn’t come out right.  I’ve pinched my sciatic nerve & can’t really put much weight on my right side or leg when doing anything.

No I haven’t bought Metallica’s album yet.  I’m waiting until the funds for iTunes.  Listening to it on our Apple Music account.

The Pretty Reckless live review in Orlando



Cash grab!!!!  “Let’s make 10 prequels to the 3 prequels of the Star Wars franchise”.  That’s quite a few movies that aren’t needed unless you’re a diehard Star Wars fan.  I’ll admit that I’m close to a diehard fan of the franchise.


Green Day start anti-Trump chant during American Music Awards performance.  Audio was not available when I posted this.  So who did vote for Trump?  All I see on the internet is mostly protesters against him other than a select few that I know of.  Ted Nugent, Ann Coulter, Kid Rock, the entire KKK, & I don’t know who else?

Tuesday. My back is still a mess, hurts to sit upright and stand when transferring to the couch, washroom, bed, or back into my wheelchair. No exercises so far this week. I have taught Brewster some choice language since my back has been out. Good thing he’s not a parrot!

Quiet week here. “Star Wars Episode VII” is on Netflix, I’ve got “Deadpool” in the blu-ray player & I bought “Batman vs. Superman” on iTunes aka My week is set until I see my chiropractor.

I exercised to “Alice in Chains” half of the album “Facelift” then “Chromeo” half of the album “White Women”, then finally “Finger Eleven” most of the album “Five Crooked Lines”

Finally! Nothing hurt this morning. I raised my squats total today, hopefully I can achieve that total tomorrow.

Nobody likes feeling sick, neither do I! I don’t have time to be sick! Just a waste of a day for me!

Yes, I squeezed in a small exercise session, just not as many repetitions, sorry, I don’t remember what I was listening to on the stereo? Probably the “Stitched Up Heart” album?

I was watching the “Batman vs. Superman” movie & this is a dark movie. This isn’t just any stand alone Superman or Batman movie. I haven’t seen the “Kill Bill” or “Sin City” movies. This is by far the darkest comic book movie I’ve seen. Henry Cavill plays the role of Superman again, his parents are the same, Amy Adams is back also. I don’t recommend it for anyone under 18. I’d say it’s a Rated R movie, well the “Ultimate Edition” is, the non theatrical version I bought which also has the theatrical version. I like it, but that’s just me. It was slammed by critics, & wasn’t rated as a good movie by others on iTunes. I like it though. I’d give it 81% tomatoes on iTunes. You can rent it on July 19th. This is the “Ultimate Edition” trailer

It’s not hump day for Canadians, it’s only a 4 day week here. Friday, July 1st is Canada Day. I’m not checking but I think Canada is turning 149 or 150 this year?

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!

Well it is no longer “ancient times”. Saskatchewan residents do not change their clocks. Why? Because we don’t need to! If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!


I’m still trying to be “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger”

I’ll see Kim again in the fall once the season’s wrapped up! Well I guess until all of the seasons finish I’ll be watching “Blue Jays in :30” the games highlights in 30 minutes. I hate watching those, but it’s better than nothing.

All of this slamming Ben Affleck, yet Batman vs. Superman is the number 1 movie in the world? Ben Affleck says thank you for your money, walks away & drops the mic!

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!! Notice that he’s not an official movie reviewer, but a fan?

Now a word from another random fan on facebook about the movie.

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!
