4 day exercise total; 400 pushups, 300 tricep pushups, 200 back flexes, 240 squats, 400 leg lifts, 200 crunches.

I fell asleep to “Coheed & Cambria” the album “The Unheavenly Creatures”

I exercised to “Foo Fighters” the album “Wasting Light”



The thing I forget to do is stretch before my exercises.  I’ll start doing my exercise, then stop everything & stretch.  That’s a regular part of my routine, unfortunately walking isn’t.  If I had kept up with my walking, using a walker on my own wouldn’t be out of the question right now, I think?

Once I’m done my exercises on Fridays, my work week is over.  I work 1 ½ hour ASAP.  I’ll do some stuff around the house, I’ll make sure Brewster’s bowls are full, have my breakfast, shower, then hit the couch, sometimes with a coffee or usually with a full liter of water.

Fridays & Saturdays or special occasions are the only evenings I have alcohol.  2 or 3 on each evening.  The sugar in the alcohol usually makes me get up quite early.  The last time I had a hangover would have been before I got sick, 2007 or early in January of 2008.


What kind of world is this???  I don’t care if you’re a democrat, republican, white, black, brown, gay, transgender, straight, male, female, etc.  Are you a respectful human?  If so the USA could use your help in the White House.  Things are getting spooky south of us.

We certainly don’t need more guns in the world, but if you own a 3D printer & look on the dark web, I hear you can create one.  At this point the USA needs to ban semi-automatic guns & now 3D printers.  Thanks technology for creating printable guns, drones & robots or sex robots that I hear you can set to kill you, etc.  Anybody else think technology has gone too far now?


Well, Making a Murderer, wasn’t on Netflix last Friday.  I hear it’s coming on Friday, October 19th, according to Netflix.



So Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath is amazed that Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones is still alive.  Goes to show that just because you listen/play metal music doesn’t mean you’re an addict.  Hahahahaha!  Metallica & Dave Mustaine of Megadeth & Lamb of God are all sober too.


Guess who’s playing drums & singing?  I’ll give you a hint, it rhymes with rave roll!  Good luck finding this album.  I bought it on CD the day it came out, it’s now out of print & not on any digital music service.


Ah, crap!  Just when you think “Lethal Weapon” is in the clear this happens!


New video from “Halestorm”


Reminder for November 2nd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


This is beyond weird.  How does a rap group take home “Best pop/rock duo”?

What does Corey Taylor (vocalist for Slipknot & Stone Sour) think about the music industry, regarding rock & metal music?


800,000,000 iTunes users vs. 50,000,000 Apple Music users.  That calms me down a bit.



“Live” has a 5 song EP out today called “Local 717”.  All of the original members back together, & it sounds much better, more like the album “Secret Samadhi”



I only own one greatest hits album of theirs on CD, which are now packed up in boxes.  If it’s an older band I’m good with only a greatest hits album.  I do own all of the “Led Zeppelin”, “The Beatles”, “Pink Floyd”, “Rush”, “The Beastie Boys”, and more.  Anyways here are a few songs….

I fell asleep to “Pearl Jam” first the album “Ten” then part of the album “Yield”

I exercised to ”I Mother Earth” the album “Scenery & Fish” in celebration of it’s release 20 years ago.  Followed by one song off of their last full length studio album “The Quicksilver Meat Dream”

I hit my daily goals again this week!!!

Remember this was a 4 day week.  So here it is: 6000 crunches, 400 squats, 320 pushups, & 280 leg lifts

My goals for each day are: 1500 crunches, 100 squats, 80 pushups, & 70 leg lifts.

Normal weekly total should be, 7500 crunches, 500 squats, 400 pushups, & 350 leg lifts.

Before I do the rest of my exercise after the first 50 squats, I’ll be drinking my smoothie, coffee & water.  Just thinking about how much my exercise will suck.  When I finish them I think “Hey that wasn’t terrible at all!”  I figure if Kevin Hart can do 1000 sit ups a day and 500 pushups, there’s no reason I can’t do it too.  I think he said it last year on “The Ellen Degeneres Show”?

When my exercise totals are on, I feel like I’ve accomplished what I expected from myself.  It’s quite a bit like my job was running a printing press.  When I fished a shift, I’d hold a sheet, look at it & think “Hey!  I helped in the process of making this!”  That validated what I was doing.  I kind of don’t see what the results are from my exercises.  I do know that more & more T-Shirts fit though.  Not really my goal, I can’t imagine being satisfied until I’m able to walk on my own.  Until that happens, I’ll be “my own worst enemy” saying to myself “NOT GOOD ENOUGH!”


My parents & my in-laws had to adjust quite a bit as well.  We still haven’t been to Kim’s parents place since 2007, before I had cancer.  Her parents & younger brother come to Regina on Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, & sometimes in the summer.

My parents had to feed me when I came out of “….m, m, m, my coma”.  I was so weak I couldn’t lift a utensil to my face.  I started to cough one day & my father chimed in “Hey, you just hit me with food, & it went 8’ & covered the wall, your cap on your trach came off”.  If I’m having anything carbonated, best to stay out of the splash zone, or wear a rain poncho!

As much as I’d enjoy daily life being easy, the world shouldn’t & doesn’t stop for anyone!  I’m learning how to keep up with everyone.


I’ll get a cell phone one day.  The cheapest piece of junk, leave it off when I’m out, & turn it on only for emergencies.  To call someone.  I don’t enjoy being photographed unless I don’t know about it.  I will not have my email or Facebook attached to my phone & very few people will have the number.  I will also not engage in texting.  I just don’t like the idea of having an active cell phone with me constantly.  I’ll never understand the attraction of being attached to the world “24/7”?


I guess I’m a “Star Wars” nerd too.  I saw this & wondered what the timeline was.  I guess “Hans Solo” was born about the same time as “Luke & Leia Skywalker” were born?  I don’t know, I was confused?



I was watching the “Lethal Weapon” TV series the other night & I heard a song I haven’t heard in a long time!

I haven’t heard the entire song since my after grad party!  I still like a few of the songs on this album.


I’m sure any help would be appreciated in helping someone with cancer!



Foo Fighters were in a law suit?


Foo Fighters weren’t going to put this song on the album.  Their manager came in after they finished recording this album & said “Hey, what about that song that says best of you 8 billion times?”


Review of the latest “Opeth” album “Sorceress”.  This is not a death metal album as they had intended.

I really like this album!


Pentatonix shared it……


One week from today “The Pretty Reckless” & “Jimmy Eat World”


New song from the upcoming album “Battles” by In Flames!

I should listen the album “Come Clarity” by In Flames


I’ll catch you on Sunday.  All I see is baseball playoffs in Cleveland & a Saskatchewan Roughriders game in Toronto this weekend!  If you need me, sorry, I’ll be on the couch.
