I fell asleep to “Alice Cooper” the album “Paranormal”, “Diemonds” the album “Never Wanna Die”, & finally “INXS” their “Greatest Hits”

Yeah, bonus live tracks at the end of this album.

 

I exercised to “Royal Blood” the album “How did we get so dark?”

 

Exercise total this week; 500 crunches, 500 leg lifts, 300 pushups, 200 back flexes, & 25 minutes of planking!  Every day starts with me exercising, no shower, dressed in workout attire, & no breakfast.  Once I finish my exercises, then I allow myself to have breakfast, shower, put on clean clothes, & usually in this room to work on the next blog.  Yep, I hit my goal every day this week.

I do get quiet exhausted after my 60 pushups.  I leave them for the end since I’m useless after them.  I roll on to my side or back since it’s easier to breathe!  I start my exercises on my back, crunches & leg lifts, once I roll on to my stomach & do ½ of my back flexes, I’m breathing pretty heavy already!  I end up doing some of my planking for a bit.  Once the back flexes & planking is done, then I’ll do a set of 20-30 pushups, then fish with 2 sets of 20 or a set of 30.

After I shower, I check to see if my balance has improved with my hands hovering by my transfer pole.  Some days are really good, & most days are bad.  When it’s a bad day I’ll try a few more times.  That’s the reason for the wheelchair & exercising!  I need to start walking with my walker at least once a week, if not 3 times a week.  When I do, I can tell that my exercising makes a HUGE improvement each time!  That being said, I’ve still have a long road ahead of me.

 

THAT’S ALL FOR THE CANCER TALK FOR NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don’t really like doing reviews. I’ve been asked to do a review regarding the brand new football stadium, so here it is from the perspective of me in a wheelchair.
The brand new Mosaic Canadian Football League stadium in Regina. I’ve been lucky enough to have been at most Saskatchewan Roughrider games in Regina since I was old enough for my grandfather to hold me on his lap. I’m guessing since I was 3 years old. Now our season tickets are in my mother’s name, my parents & I go to the games now.
From my perspective at the games, this new stadium is FANTASTIC! There are 2 wheelchair washrooms that I can manage to get to by myself with ease. Our view of the field is excellent. When everybody stands up, we can see everything on the field still. When people directly in front of us stand, they’re around the height of our knees!
There are 9 instead of 2 elevators I hear, I’ve never had to use one at either stadium. We park directly across the street & enter on concourse level, our seats are also on concourse level. The stadium was built under ground level, it’s Regina’s Grand Canyon. We sit on the east side/sunny side. With our seats on ground level & the west side being higher with 2 levels the sun is out of our eyes sooner. If you’re wearing a hat or have sun glasses, the sun is no problem to deal with. Friends of ours sit on a level above us & have the same issues with the sun that the entire east side had at the old stadium.
I only have 2 minor complaints regarding the new stadium, which we were asked about at the exhibition game. Every regular seat has a cup holder, the wheelchair seats don’t. Wheelchair seating is basically a fenced in community in every section. The fence has a slightly larger post every 4-5 feet, I’m sure 2 cup holders on each large post could easily be done.
The other issue is that our section needs a metal plate on the ground over four small bumps on the entrance & exit to our wheelchair seats. I’m sure it’s coming since we noticed one section we passed already had one for the exhibition game. Other than those two things, I’d give the new Mosaic stadium a strong A or once those little things are corrected an A+!
There are many food & drink vendors in the stadium. That would be my only major complaint. The prices are outrageous, so I don’t purchase anything. I found out the hard way that a regular size can of pilsner beer costs $9. Found out at the exhibition game in June. I had a burger & 2 pilsners, cost me roughly $25? Coke & popcorn from now on, $12 or nothing at all.
The season ticket seats that I’ve been sitting in all of my life were pretty easy for me to get to with a little help from my father. He’d push my wheelchair up 2 ramps, help me walk up 10-12 stairs, & our seats were directly in front of us. We’d have to walk about 5 feet, go down one step, I’d sit & slide over to my spot. I was unable to have any fluids in me for about 5 hours, the washrooms weren’t very accessible at the old stadium. We’d get there an hour before the game & be among the last 100 people to leave the stadium. We didn’t want to slow anyone down or get in the way. Someone always offered to help which was nice. Standard response “Thanks we’re OK, just slow”.
5 hours without any fluid, I’d chew sugarless gum. It kept my mouth moist. Dry mouth is a side-effect from my medication. When my mouth gets dry, I’m really difficult to understand! It sounds similar to me speaking after 5 alcoholic beverages!

IF YOU’RE HERE FOR THE UPDATE, THAT’S ALL THAT I HAVE FOR YOU TODAY.

I adore Foo Fighters, I have for a long time. I’ll admit they’ve made a few songs I wasn’t really into. Their new album “Concrete & Gold” has me worried. I’ve heard 4 songs in total from their September release. 2 of the songs I really like, possibly 3. There is 1 song I could do without, & that 3rd song might sound really good recorded rather than live, which is how I heard the 3 other songs other than “Run”

I got the new album by ‘Stone Sour’ on Friday. I’d have to say their new album “Hydrograd” is my favourite album of theirs along with “Come What (ever) May”. It’s a FANTASTIC hard rock album! I’m looking forward to diving deeper into it.

As for ‘Tool’ or ‘A Perfect Circle’, I don’t know, but either one would be welcome. I guess if you believe, bassist Justin Chancellor of Tool, they’re roughly 90% done the album. Yet, A Perfect Circle stated they’d be in the studio this year as well. That’s all the info I can dig up for you, take it with a grain of salt. With these 2 bands I wait to believe them until I’ve got the album.

We rented “CHiPS” a few days ago. A raunchy comedy rated R, definitely not for kids. Good for a chuckle for adults though.

OK, Stone Sour & Nickelback have both released albums in the last 2 weeks like one or the other or both. Just because you’re anti this doesn’t mean you’re pro the other. You can like both or not like either. Nobody has the right to tell you what to listen to. I’m not a Nickelback fan, they have their place though, just not on my iTunes. Millions of other people like them though!



I say leave Nickelback alone if you don’t like them. I’m simply not a fan of theirs. I bought 2 of their very early albums & saw them in concert years ago. I like Stone Sour, bring on the haters, I guess? Like em’ or not Nickelback has done very well!

Flashback to 1975. When ‘Blondie’ played at CBGB!
http://www.rollingstone.com/music/videos/flashback-blondie-perform-at-cbgb-in-the-summer-of-1975-20130716

I’m always speaking on my behalf only. Just wanted to make that clear before writing this part. If Gene Simmons of KISS, can make money off of something, he’ll find a way to do so. I’m just waiting for the day he tries to trademark air & water……………….I don’t think that’s out of his realm? At least his latest effort was pulled back quickly due to rock & metal fans back lash!

I’ll catch you tomorrow, with a proper staycation update! In Canada we still have tomorrow off!

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!

Friday evening I watched the Blue Jays win against Detroit, Riders lost to Edmonton Eskimos, that was my evening. Kim went to bed after the baseball game. She wanted to watch something else instead of a football game. I told her I could watch the game in our bedroom, but she falls asleep very quick.

Saturday was more of the same, went out in the evening for a few things needed for Sunday & watched a movie on Netflix. Quiet weekend!

Sunday this is our beginning of a few rather busy days, stuff to do & the coputron isn’t one of them! Baseball today, then the all star break for 4 or 5 days. Mid-summer break for baseball players, busy times for Kim & I. I’m fine, just doctor appointments & such.

I say either learn the new age of concert etiquette, or leave your phone in your vehicle. Before every movie in a theater you’re told to turn off your phone. I think any live show should have the same disclaimer before it, concert, movie, musical, play, opera, etc.

There were 2 separate shootings in the USA last week, both by police officers. Before you flip out about the police shooting people, hear me out. This has nothing to do with race. If Americans gave up the right to carry a loaded weapon, or if these victims didn’t have them, there would be little to no reason for police to worry about these situations.

When you hear gun shots, everybody runs away, except the police. What do the police officers do? Run towards the gun shots!

Take guns away from “common people”, this crap might not happen?

The question I usually think of is why wasn’t this on the news so often in the ’80s or anytime before that? Did it not happen as often? If so what the @#&^% happened, why now?

There’s a video on this youtube channel which is not available in my region, a Daily Show with Trevor Noah?

I’ll try to get it on the blog Facebook blog site? The police in Las Vegas admitted in 2011 that there was a problem so they changed the training methods and police shootings have dropped 36%, not perfect, but better.

Late start to my day. Kim left for work at 7:00 am, I didn’t roll , my lazy butt out of bed until 8:30 am. I much prefer getting up before 8:00 am so I can get things done. For me this is a day of rushing around the place to do what’s needed after my exercises.

I can’t remember what European country it was, iTunes was ruled by a judge that iTunes is illegal since 2013 or 2014. Because you can burn a CD on it. Apple now sells lap-top computers without a CD, DVD or Blu-ray drive. That sounds more illegal than banning the use of iTunes all together. I’m sure the people at Apple could just not include the burning software?

Say you’re sitting around the house & an older song pops into your head maybe you heard it in passing or on a commercial and you say to yourself “Hey, I’ve got that on CD! I should put it on my iPod!” wait, you can’t because you have a new Apple lap top with no CD drive in it. So now you’re going to add the album to your streaming service or buy it on iTunes. More money for Apple (The Rich) & less for you (The not nearly as rich), this sounds illegal to me. Apple is now checking the info on the music you put on your personal iTunes & we’re not allowed to borrow or burn mix CDs because it is now illegal? What was the movie I saw just a few years ago with Ashton Kutcher who made a mix CD for Natalie Portman’s character on her period?

Comedy album anyone?

Masterpiece review courtesy of The Consequence of Sound. This is when Radiohead took a big dive for me. This is their third album after the very FANTASTIC “The Bends” followed by the oh so AWESOME/MIND BLOWING “OK Computer”

For the record I’m not a fan of Kiss, Motley Crue, or Sixx AM. Gene Simmons is & will be known as the most outspoken musician in history, Kanye West will be a close 2nd . I don’t listen to any of them. They’re the ones who have the celebrity platform to say what they want, when they want. You can choose to listen or avoid it.

Alice in Chains & Lenny Kravitz to open on the Guns n’ Roses tour

http://loudwire.com/guns-n-roses-select-alice-in-chains-lenny-kravitz-open-not-in-this-lifetime-shows/

If you ask me? I’d go to see the opener, and leave when the opener was done. It’s subjective & the only reason there’s any info on Guns n’ Roses is because I know that many people are BIG fans of them.

OK that’s fine. It doesn’t take a decade to release an album the same way Axl & friends did with “Chinese Democracy”. Yes Donald Trump has made a joke of the political system in the USA.

BASEBALL IS BORING TO MOST, I GET IT.

I fell asleep to “Halestorm” the album “The Strange Case of….”

I exercised to “Foo Fighters” 60 B-Sides on shuffle. About half of their B-Sides are cover songs. Here’s 2 that are originals & one that is a cover of Pink Floyd.

Well the next one isn’t Foo Fighters. It’s Dave Grohl & Louise Post from “Veruca Salt”. Recorded for a soundtrack to a Jonny Depp movie called “Touch” that went nowhere fast in the late ’90s or early 2000s

Pink Floyd cover. Dave Grohl & drummer, Taylor Hawkins, switched so Taylor could just sing.

I get it so many people don’t care for baseball. I’m different, I’m Canadian yet the NHL has become nearly unwatchable for me. The only thing I see in hockey are people getting into fights. That’s exactly what the Blue Jay game turned into on Sunday. 2 bench & bullpen clearing fights between the Blue Jays & The Texas Rangers, the difference? It wasn’t 2 idiots on skates that one person landed a semi respectable punch on the opponent. It was 2 all morons on deck to fight over something that happened in October? Just let it go! It was a new world one second after Jose Bautista did his bat flip in the playoffs last year & Sunday 8 people got ejected because they had a hissy fit over something that happened last year? Here’s what happened in October followed by what occurred Sunday.

Texas was offended by that, it’s now 2016. Put on your big boy pants & get out of the 1950s. The game has changed. Somewhat for the worst and somewhat for the better. It happened & it’s over, yet they dig it up on Sunday?

Even if the analyst says “That’s how things are done”, well it’s not 2009 or earlier when he played the game. Heck he made it to the big leagues, I was no where remotely close to them when I played city league baseball at the age of 17 in 1997. That stuff is what I call “bush league baseball”. I never engaged in that stuff, however I had a team mate that was all about it. In my head I always thought “OK, do what you want & make yourself happy. None of us are coming out to fight your battles for you”. He wasn’t someone I wanted anything to do with.

On Sunday, I watched numerous MILLIONAIRES play a GAME, throw a temper TANTRUM over something that happened in 2015? That’s more than a little RIDICULOUS to me.

Kim & I are both burnt out. We both have tunnel vision, which isn’t necessarily a good thing. We’re both burning the candle at both ends. We need a break, not a stay cation. We need go somewhere & relax. Yet the money tree disagrees. We might visit family in Canada. We let our passports expire after we went yo Boston in the summer of 2007. Bottom line we’re both tired.

I had to do a few chores so of course I turned on some music”Clutch”, “Big Wreck”, & “Genesis”.

Do you have any highly anticipated releases coming your way in June? I have 2 but they’re not on this list.

I guess this a decent line up for a festival? A little bit hit & miss. All in all it’s pretty solid.

He said it, it’s over, forget about it, & keep any negative opinions to yourself. Not everyone likes to hear one celebrity bash another publically. Read it if you want to or listen to the audio.
