EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL/DREAM THEATER   (Distance Over Time)

No such thing as a stupid question!  Feel free to ask me on Facebook or the website!

www.youtube.com links are there for a point of reference if you don’t know what I’m talking about.

Do you have a question about stage 4 brain cancer?  Ask if you do!

I fell asleep to “Lacuna Coil” the album “Broken Crown Halo”

I exercised to “Reignwolf aka Jordan Cook” from Saskatoon his first full album that I’m undecided if I’ll purchase.  “Hear me Out”

 

5 day exercise total.  I actually lowered 3 totals too much, the numbers are wonky this week.  There will be regular numbers for each exercise next week….I hope!

220 pushups, 600 leg lifts, 300 crunches, 220 tricep lifts, 340 squats, 300 back flexes.

Pushups & tricep lifts are done on Tuesdays & Thursday.  Everything else is on Mondays, Wednesdays, & Fridays.

 

Some might think I’m scared of being dead, not so.  I am sacred of how I’ll die though.  Even though I was told, long after the fact, that my cancer would’ve likely came back in 2013.  That obviously didn’t happen, thank goodness!  I exercise a lot but there’s not much to exercise my brain with.  Other than baseball & word search puzzles.  I’ll likely get some actual puzzles in the near future.

Kim has taught me how to use our stove & oven, I’m still a little iffy with our pressure cooker & I’ve never used our popcorn maker.  I’ve got microwave popcorn until that day comes.

I’m not mentally handicapped, just physically handicapped.  If I need my wife to teach me how to use an appliance I just ask, or try to figure it out on my own if it won’t burn me.

 

 

The DC movies are trying to fix the DC universe.

From what I’ve been told, the next season of Criminal Minds will be 10 episodes for the SERIES finale.  My favourite show on TV.  15th & final season

Modern Family was supposed to end after this, it’s 10th season but they’re not done.  There will be an 11th season.  I’ve heard that it will also be a 10 episode season.

Skip to the 5:00 minute point in the video.

I’m more than anxious for this album to be released!  That will make 6 fantastic albums for me this year!

Why do I prefer iTunes in comparison to streaming music?  Here’s a few reasons.  I prefer to own my music.  I believe that if anyone has done something for you or something you appreciate, they should be paid.  A song is made by the artist who pays $100s if not $1000s to book a studio & a producer to record just 1 song, the song will then be sold for a fraction of a cent, iTunes isn’t much better though, I can buy a 10 song album for $9.99.  Streaming music might be the real issue.  Jack White of “The White Stripes” stated a few years ago that he has limited funds & can’t afford to tour as much.  More bands/artist need to have money to go on tour.  If they’re not selling their albums, how are they supposed to go on tour?  Finally, it just doesn’t feel right.  I had a ton of music that I downloaded illegally & didn’t feel right about it & ended up buying the CDs & iTunes files for these reasons.

I do like the album “The State” by Nickelback that was released in 2000.  I don’t hate their music.  If Nickelback is playing over the P. A. system in a restaurant or bar & it’s a song I don’t like, I’ll wait 5 minutes for something else to come on.

 

DREAM THEATER   (Distance Over Time)

This is probably the first band that comes to mind for metal fans when they hear the words “progressive metal”.  They released their 13th studio album on February 22nd, 2019.  Reminds me of older Dream Theater stuff with the exception of being just under 1 hour long.  Their last album “The Astonishing” was really not very good.  34 songs as a double album.  I think they went for more quantity than quality on that one?  This new album “Distance Over Time” is much more familiar to fans of the group, in a good way.  Familiar but also new & refreshing.

The singer doesn’t growl or scream.  He’s a classically trained singer with a great voice!  They’re all classically trained actually.   Here’s a few songs from this new album….

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.

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

I am EXTREMELY claustrophobic.  In 2008 MRIs & radiation treatments freaked me out.  MRIs are loud, they give you ear plugs before you’re in it.  Then they would slide me in the machine as far as I could go, my shoulders are too broad to go into the MRI machine.  My nurses at the Pasqua Hospital would give me a Benadryl to sleep through it.  The final time in the MRI, I woke up before I was put in the machine, I freaked out.  They gave me a bean bag to toss if something was wrong.  There was always something wrong, me wearing a plastic mask shoved in a tiny hole that I didn’t fit into that well.

Radiation treatments bothered me too.  I had to wear a very tight mask over my face, so tight it would touch my nose & squish it a bit, not fun!

I’m really glad I don’t have to do any of that anymore.  Now I go for a CT scan every year & a half.  Not nearly as cramped as an MRI, much better!

It’s Wednesday, December 7, 2016.  My sciatic nerve is still bugging me, at this point it’s annoying.  Not nearly as painful as it was initially.  Just annoying & preventing me from exercising.  I haven’t exercised in 2 ½ weeks, that really bothers me.  I’m not pretty enough to be a trophy husband!

I thought this would slow down more.  Most groups/musicians seemed to save everything for the last three months of 2016.

 

…and I need to know what Kim & Kanye are up to why?

I’m not a fan of Disturbed, I was when I was in my early 20s.  If you like them that’s great.  They release a cover of “The Sound of Silence” & it’s this HUGE mega hit.  What did it do for me?  It reminded me of the 3 disc boxset I have of Simon & Garfunkel that I bought when I was 17.  With the original version by Simon & Garfunkel & how much I like the original.

 

Yes, I own 4 box sets, Led Zeppelin, Simon & Garfunkel, Nirvana, & Alter Bridge

Alter Bridge released their boxset after their 4th album.  The boxset contains multiple DVDs of interviews with individual band members, a book, all 4 CDs, & all 4 albums on vinyl.  Along with an autographed poster, & my name engraved on the outside of the box.

HEADACHES

I fell asleep to many albums, Brewster continually jumped off of the bed throughout the night. “Them Crooked Vultures”, “Lacuna Coil” the album “Delirium”, & “Tremonti” the album “Dust”

There are 2 or 3 more that I can’t remember. I didn’t sleep much & Kim slept less. Brewster’s fine, he’s sleeping of course!

I exercised to “Coheed & Cambria” ½ of the album “The Colour Before the Sun”, “Queens of the Stone Age” the entire album “Songs for the Deaf”, then ½ of “Candlebox” “Love Stories & Other Musings”

I get very nervous when I have a headache. Sunday, February 3rd 2008 was the most painful headache I’ve ever had & it was on the back, near my neck at the bottom of my skull. Then on that Tuesday I was rushed to the hospital & diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer.

I had a mild headache Tuesday night & it was still there Wednesday morning. I was freaking out to myself. Kim gave me some Tylenol & it went away. Normal mild headache by my forehead. I was nervous until it quickly went away after the Tylenol.

I guess The Tragically Hip will be in Regina August 20th at The Capital.

I turned this on yesterday. I miss these guys. We played at least 3 shows with them when they toured across Canada, from Ontario. I really like the 2 albums I have of their’s. Too bad they broke up after 2 albums & a crap load of touring. I was pulling for them to make it big. Really good guys & a really good live band!

Still Tuesday July 26th. Just returned from the chiropractor. I actually cracked this time, last time I didn’t. Baseball & an ice pack & we’ll see how I feel in the morning? There likely wont be an exercise total this week or early on next week unless I wake up & feel great.

Wednesday morning much better back! Some stretching & ice, and I hope to be in my exercise routine by the beginning of next week!

My back muscles get tight over night of course, when I get up it’s not pleasant. After dooing multiple stretches & applying ice, it feels remarkably better, almost no pain at all.

On this day, Thursday, July 26th, 2012 I was released from the Wascana Rehabilitation Center & I haven’t returned since. I’d like to visit, but I can’t drive & Kim’s working full time.

Sorry, I just write a lot.

I REALLY liked my job as a printing press operator. The most difficult thing to deal with was getting the paper feeder set up properly. You could have identical press’ side by side & they wouldn’t work the same. I was young & still learning when I started there, around 23 I’d guess? I got cancer 6 days after my 28th birthday. I was thrown in & everyone expected a TON from me. When Sherry Stewart & I were working the same shift, I’d mentally race to keep up or try to pass her in setting up a job on a press. She is really good at her job & was always a step ahead of me. I kind of miss running a printing press. If I could go back to Impact Printers I would in a heart beat.

I didn’t seek out to be a printer, I fell into it accidentally I had no clue what I wanted to do. I grabbed a calender from SIAST & thought the Graphic Arts Production program looked interesting. Even when I first got there I thought I’d take desktop computer designing….boy was I wrong after my first semester I chose to going into the production side of things. I liked it, since I didn’t have to deal with clients for the most part. When I did have to deal with a client I was fine, not always what I wanted to do, but not a big deal.

When iPods came out, I’d pop in 1 ear bud, listen to the press & go about my day. Most print shops, at least the ones I worked at, nobody running a press wanted to stop for lunch or coffee. Once it’s running well you don’t want to interrupt a press. If it’s not going well, you have work to do/figure out the problem.

There are many famous groups I don’t listen to, since I’m not a fan of their music. I’m sorry if I don’t like your favourite band or solo act. It would be a pretty boring world if everybody liked the same stuff. Out of all of the bands/musicians I don’t listen to. If I had to choose one it would be Metallica. If you don’t have the same taste in music, that’s fine by me.

The only 2 things I can think of that might pop up in the next 2 months music wise for me is “The Pretty Reckless” & “Into Eternity”? I’ve got the single from “The Pretty Reckless” but no release date. I know “Into Eternity” has an album recorded, it’s not released yet though. “Tool”, I’m just not holding my breath for it will be released whenever & myself and other “Tool” fans will rejoice!

Quiet/boring week here. I actually miss exercising? It keeps me busy along with writing a blog everyday. I’ve been watching movies over & over again, & “Stranger Things” on Netflix. Of course a ton of music as well. Stretching my back & applying ice to it.

This is what I’ve been listening to throughout the week…………..

I exercised to “Ben Harper” the album “Call It What It Is” wasn’t long enough, so I put on “Highly Suspect” the album “Mister Asylum”

All of my music info came from; first my parents, then radio, then Much Music, always from like minded friends, then I got into metal a little over a decade ago, & now it’s all from facebook. I rarely listen to the radio, for a few reasons. I flip on the rock radio station & I either own it or don’t like it. That & isn’t FM radio supposed to play/advertise a new song or album? I don’t need to hear “Tom Sawyer” by Rush from the 1970s for the 4th time today ( I wish I was joking but somebody at the station must REALLY like that song)

I’ll be sitting in our vehicle somewhere Kim has to run in, & I’ll flip through 3 FM stations & usually turn it off after a total of 10 seconds. If I find something I like, it’s usually on the soft rock station or Jack FM where they truly do play everything. I probably own it, but haven’t listened to it in a while & it urges me to listen to an album when I get home!

All I can tell you is that Paramore’s Facebook page is very active with studio photos!!!!!!

Ben Affleck knew you hated him being cast as Batman. The movie exceeded my expectations! I loved the Christian Bale Batman trilogy! I’d say this is darker and easily lives up to the hype! Out on iTunes for purchase June 28th. Available in store on DVD or Blu-ray in July.

I at my parents place from the afternoon to the time Kim finished work. Then we had supper & came home shorty after that.

I wrote all of this but the stuff I listened to at the top of this post. It’s now 12:30pm. I’m becoming a fantastic procrastinator! Not a good thing at all. I had lunch after my exercises & listened to the most recent release from “Lacuna Coil” the album “Delirium”.

OK, he’s dead now. What is done is done. Nobody can change that. It was wrong & the victims will be left to deal with it unfortunately. Let him R.I.P.

Give them as many guns as they want & tax ammunition 200% & raise the price on it to $100.00 a box, or higher! This could go two ways. America could take a chunk out of their debt or gun owners will either stop shooting people, or save their money for an ammo shopping spree!

I was really excited for “Drones” by Muse, didn’t pan out like I had thought it would? It’s not terrible but it’s not a typical Muse album.

Muse’ previous album “The 2nd Law” album review. This album I’m really not sure about, still?

The Muse album “Black Holes & Revelations” is easily my favourite Muse studio album
