I fell asleep to “Dead Sara” the EP “Temporary Things Taking up Space”

I exercised to “Chromeo” new album “Head Over Heels”

 

A nice break this week from baseball.  The All-Star Game & Home run challenge are this week & I’m not 12 years old anymore aka I have no desire to watch any of it.

Question for non-baseball fans.  Baseball games are usually around 3 hours long, if they were 10 minutes shorter, would you then consider watching a game?  I wouldn’t but the league is coming up with new rules to speed up the pace of the game.  I’m pretty sure that won’t increase any fan base?

Anyways, I’ve changed my workout routine to abs & legs one day, then arms & back the next day.  3 exercises each day but all different muscle groups.  Less stress on my body in one day, hopefully less is more in this case?  It’s recommended by many.  If it works great!  If it doesn’t, then it’s back to the old routine, 6 exercises a day.

I don’t know how I got to 240 pushups a day?  I can only manage 120 right now.  I might revert to 100 & build up from there, next week?

 

BLUE RODEO

I love ‘em!  Great mix of country & rock.  I only have their “Greatest Hits”.  I had one other on CD that is long gone for some reason?  I don’t know a lot about them.  I know Chris Messer is or was a big fan.  Kim & I saw them once in Regina!  Great show, I’m just not a HUGE fan.  I believe the group is made up of 5 guys based in Toronto, Ontario.  I’m not really a country fan, but this group works fine for me….

I heard Chris Messer sing/play the song “Try” & asked myself “When did Jim Cuddy get here?”  Spot on and FANTASTIC!

 

OH, google!  Hahahahaha!

 

Greta Van Fleet’s new song from their upcoming album.

I find odd bruises & scabs on me all of the time & never know where they came from, is that weird?

Friday was pretty tame.  Kim still wasn’t feeling very good, I’ve never seen her ill for more than 2 or 3 days.  We ended the day by watching “Kingsman The Secret Service”.  Sort of a “James Bond” meets “Monty Python” movie, HILARIOUS!

Saturday I slept in for a LONG time, 12:30 pm seemed like a good time to get up.  Too long for me, a waste of a day but I guess I needed it.  I started my exercising on Tuesday, then later on Wednesday after my 2nd day of exercising I was sore & tired.  Thursday & Friday were fine though.  Kim woke up feeling fine on Saturday.  Yay, had the house upside down when I got up & she was close to having it all clean.  Poor Kim, wasted her entire week off being sick & required many naps with Brewster.  At least she was feeling better.  Quiet Saturday even ordered in some supper.

Yay, the Blue Jays did something that hopefully won’t matter if the $20,000,000/year Troy Tulowitzki can stay healthy?

Finished Saturday with too much rum after the gin while watching Wonder Woman.

 

I always seem to have a different opinion than the masses.  I like the “Wonder Woman” movie, yet I find it to be a movie I tolerate in a series I’m all in for.  Meanwhile “Thor”, “Dr. Strange”, & “Guardians of the Galaxy” I did not enjoy.  I’m hesitant to watch “Guardians of the Galaxy 2” because of my dislike of the first one.

At least the 2nd, Thor: The Dark World movie was good!

 

Kim went out this morning for coffee with Jolene.  I got up while she was out & noticed that my 160gig iPod Classic needed to be charged.  Kim was charging her new iPhone in a different outlet & took my charger over by her’s.  I dropped her phone & of course the glass shattered from a 4 foot fall.  My bad, nobody else’ fault.

Why is it that when my iPod dies, I’ll have to pay more for an iPod touch with a smaller hard drive in it, & if I drop it, I’ll have to replace it?  I’ve pretty much decided once it dies on me, I’m done with owning an iPod of any kind.  128gig iPod touch, no thanks.

Phew, dodged a bullet there.  She was charging the one that was already broken to transfer the info over.  I was nervous for a while there!

I’ve dropped my iPod too many times to count & I’ve only had to restart it twice since I got it over 6 full years ago.  My question is, why doesn’t Apple make iPhones with fiberglass?  Is it because of the cost to make them or the cost loss from consumers constantly replacing their iPhone?

We’ve been sitting on the couch waiting for the other to move.  So I’m here to post this & return to the couch.

 

I can get behind this, I like Halestorm.  SOME LANGUAGE in the song “Here’s to us”.

I hope this will knock him off his thrown.

Stop giving him attention, I’m going to stop as well.  He thrives on attention, if you stop maybe he’ll do something reasonable, although I doubt it.  You never know unless you try?

Marvel’s “Black Panther” trailer.  Movie in theaters February 16th

 

Pink – Beautiful Trauma

I did not see this album being so good.  It’s a pop album as you may have guessed.  The difference here is that I find it to be very catchy.  I’m listening to this album about once a day right now in the mix with Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Devin Townsend Project, Big Wreck, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds & the newest release from Kelly Clarkson.

I usually have music playing all day.  Kim had the week off but was ill with a head cold & a headache earlier this past week.  Not much music being played here.  Here’s a few tracks from Pink’s “Beautiful Trauma”
