3 Chiropractor appointments & 1 massage therapy session on my lower back, right butt cheek, & right leg.  The 3rd trip to my Chiropractor really helped!!  Only problem was the muscles would tighten up overnight.  I’d like to do some mild exercise but it hurts even when I transfer to my wheelchair.  Friday will be all stretching.  Actually, I’ll just continue to stretch until it’s gone.  “Right now” it’s just annoying.  I’ll stand up, have a brief pain & try not to do much.  It only hurts when I move.  Sitting or laying down on my left side or on my back, I’m fine.  Seems like my body just gave up on me.  I’ve decided to take it easy for the month.

I’ve never really been to a massage therapist.  My cousin is a massage therapist though, out of province though.  I was getting up to put my shirt on & ended up breaking the massage table.  I felt like an idiot, snapped the face hole right off.  She said it wasn’t a big deal.  She’ll get a new table from amazon.  Of course we’re going to pay the $20 for it, I just felt so bad.  Lesson learned “Do not put any weight on that part of the table”!

Without doing any exercise it gets EXTREMELY boring for me.  It makes for a very long day.

This just got me riled up!

This is sad news for In Flames fans.  I just watched their live DVD on Tuesday.  At least nobody died nor is the band breaking up.

Quite subjective, a few are on my list though.

My brother’s a big fan of Finger Eleven, naturally I got into Finger Eleven & he got into Foo Fighters.  I usually put on the most recent release from Finger Eleven, “Five Crooked Lines” lately I tend to listen to their first album, Tip, or the album they made when they were called “The Rainbow Butt Monkeys”

Yes, we covered this song.  I love this song!!!!!

 

I saw these 2 groups 1 on Conan, & 1 on Jimmy Fallon.  I’m pretty sure I don’t need them but figured you might like to be in on the ground level?

 

YAY, Alter Bridge are doing the typical Canadian tour…….fart noise!  Toronto & Montreal.  I need to move.  That ain’t happening!

FACEBOOK, TWITTER, INSTAGRAM & EMAIL

All of these “social media” sites require one thing, email! You join a social media site & TONS of people totally forget that they have an email. I always check both, why? Because not everyone has a facebook, twitter, instagram, etc. account. Everybody on these sites has an email account! How often does anyone send you an email via one of these sites? I do because some people are a touch stubborn & refuse to use their email. What did you do before the invention of www.myspace.com? You used email probably. I get it, it’s a personal choice. Just remember that not everyone likes these sites. I use facebook mostly for these blogs & a handful of people who have problems with their email account.

This music blog was for those who like similar music as I, & those who don’t want to be on a social media site. If it wasn’t for this blog, I’d be long gone from facebook!

Last night’s baseball game between the Toronto Blue Jays 78W-59L & the Boston Red Sox 65W-72L prior to the game was a nail biter for me. Tied 1-1 into the 10th inning. Then the Toronto Blue Jay bats woke up & everything bounced Toronto’s way to win 5-1 in the end. I was nervous, I may have peed a bit on the couch. (Shh! Don’t tell Kim?)

I know baseball’s not for everyone, I get it. This has been an exciting time for the Blue Jays though! First time the fans have seen meaningful baseball in September since the early ’90s!

Today’s workout was brought to you by Dream Theater’s ‘Images & Words’ album!

Godsmack’s tour for 2015. I’ve never really listened to them other than seeing the “Voodoo” video on Much Music. I didn’t care much for that song so I never paid attention to them.

If Bruno Mars does the half time show at the Super Bowl, I might watch it? Last time I watched was because Prince did the half time show in the rain. I guess I did watch last year when it was Bruno Mars & the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Remember the ’90s when Edgefest would tour Canada? That was AWESOME! Despite me breaking my nose in the mosh pit. During Big Wreck’s set & this particular song.

How to anger Spider-man fans. Either way is fine with me, but it’s not how the original Spider-man comics were written. That’s what will cause the anger of die hard Spider-man fans. He quit Spider-man, so why does he have a say in what happens in future Spider-man movies?

I don’t get “Arctic Monkeys”, “Kings of Leon”, “Arcade Fire”, “Jack White” or “Mastodon” etc. There’s numerous fans I just don’t get it. WARNING!

http://consequenceofsound.net/2014/06/watch-arctic-monkeys-video-for-snap-out-of-it/

 

Big Wreck tour dates on their facebook page! No Regina date, just Saskatoon on Friday, October 3rd for Saskatchewan. About 13 dates, all Canadian dates.

Iron Maiden done as a bluegrass song?

http://loudwire.com/finnish-band-iron-maiden-classic-the-trooper/

 

Yep, he’s a country artist with a huge vocal range and very little of the annoying twang! Kim’s favourite artist, I grew to like him just as Kim grew to like Big Wreck & Foo Fighters. Paul Brandt, or Kim just refer’s to him as Paul, is from Airdrie, Alberta and was a nurse before he was famous. I’ve been to one of his concerts, and he’s very good live! I’m not a die hard fan of country music though. Kim goes to see him whenever he’s in town. I don’t need to pay $30+ to see him constantly though. I haven’t seen him in quite a while though.

A Cover song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vc_zWbUTdik

 

I believe this is the song Keith Urban played the guitar solo on, but I could be wrong?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Zwpbq2Rg6M

 

I was asked to play/sing this at Chuck & Stacey’s wedding. I can’t play lead guitar so Kim’s brother, Aaron, could and helped me out. He played lead as I strummed the chords and sang.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ze5boOcxLM

 

Kim was a bridesmaid for a ton of people, I got to sit for supper with quite a few people I had never met before. 6 months after we started dating here sister got married, I got to meet her entire family all at once, that was more than a little nerve racking.
