EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL & CANCER

I fell asleep to “Andy McKee” the album “Dream Catcher” after listening to the brand new live album from “Barenaked Ladies”. I preordered it & got it last night “Live at Red Rocks”

Everything from Andy McKee is acoustic & instrumental. This is the only cover song I have of his.

I exercised to “Alice Cooper” his “Greatest Hits” then about half of “Anthrax” the latest album “For All Kings”

Monday is a Holiday! So I’ll post the weekend update on Monday evening.

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

Exercise total for the week; 6000 crunches, 320 leg lifts, & 160 squats.

The squats are one of the most difficult exercises I do. My legs have very little muscle, if I’m not holding something, I’ll fall. I do my squats while keeping my balance with my sliding up & down my transfer pole. I don’t use any force or grab the pole to help me. It’s just there for balance.

I didn’t expect/want the world to stop when I got sick, & it didn’t which is a great thing, everything “carried on” as it should. Having an experience with cancer is something I would never wish on ANYONE. Not everyone reacts the same to someone having cancer. I get that.

Joe Walsh’s, Eagles & solo artist, life in 15 songs. He also deserves an award for best title for a Greatest Hits album “Look What I Did”

The words of Chris Cornell, singer of Soundgarden

“I think ‘Down On The Upside’ is the crowning achievement of Soundgarden’s life cycle. We faced our biggest challenge, which was following up a monster” – Chris Cornell, Revolver 2006

Flashback to U2’s Pop Mart tour. I’ve always wanted to see the VHS or now DVD they recorded of one of the shows on this tour.

YESTERDAY GOT AWAY FROM ME

I fell asleep to “Walk off the Earth” the album “Sing it all Away” woke up in the middle because I’m either getting old, turning into a woman or my bladder shrunk. Went to bed & listened to “The Traveling Wilburys” their only album Tom Petty, Roy Orbison, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, & Bob Dylan!

I exercised to “Crash Test Dummies” the album “God Shuffled His Feet”

I think “Crash Test Dummies” were at The Exchange in the last few years? I didn’t go, I didn’t even know they were still around. I only have their first 3 CDs.

Kim has been sanding some wooden boards we have as shelves. Our place is covered in dust. She got them from a relative I believe, but they warped, they’re solid pine shelves about 8′ long. Messy place here at the moment. I think it might be what is making me cough up phlegm every morning & today was the same with a dash of a sore throat added.

Yes, this is on both Facebook or old school email for subscription!

Missed it by that much. Right decade for me, just the wrong music! I wanted the “grunge” of the ’90s to come back, not this.

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/salt-n-pepa-vanilla-ice-to-headline-i-love-the-90s-tour-20160329

Yeah, that sounds completely different than Queen…………..NOT!

Here’s to their earlier success……………….I hope!

Kongos preorder is April 15th

This has nothing to do with “Disturbed”! If you’re a parent you should know better than to use your phone in a public setting featuring any type of show. Do you need to post anything at that time? Do you use your phone once the light dims in a movie theater? Put your phone away for a few hours & enjoy whatever entertainment you have paid for. Was it a life or death situation she was dealing with? NO! Put your phone away! You wont die & the pictures will still be there after the show. It’s called etiquette……………..take a refresher course!!!!!

LANGUAGE BUT IT MAKES SENSE!!!!!

If you missed James Corden’s prime time carpool karaoke special, here’s a portion of it. This was a new carpool karaoke segment! He’s the guy that took over Craig Ferguson’s show & changed it radically. I find it to be much better, but that’s just me.

A PILE of photos of “Chevelle” hard at work in the studio recording their next album

“Walk off the Earth” shared it…….

They were here earlier this week or opening for “Mariana’s Trench” who I’ve never heard a song by, but I’ve heard the name in passing. Apparently the majority of concert goers said it should have been “Mariana’s Trench” opening for “Walk off the Earth”. If that had been the case, I would have seen if Kim & I could go to that after seeing “The Watchmen” on Friday

Yay, Mark Tremonti’s going on tour……………………in Europe………………….again. Once he’s done recording the new “Alter Bridge” album by the end of April. I think he & Myles Kennedy need a break? Myles is the singer for both “Slash” & “Alter Bridge” he’s also doing a solo album since 2012 in his little window of spare time. Mark Tremonti is doing his solo project as well as “Alter Bridge”

Rolling Stone’s 100 greatest drummers of all time

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/lists/100-greatest-drummers-of-all-time-20160331

It’s subjective. Meg White (White Stripes) made the list but not Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater)???? Heck, before cancer I could & have played drums to a White Stripes song.

I listened to Dream Theater on my iPod at work this album, Systematic Chaos then a double album of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s greatest hits. That was roughly 7 hours of my day at work. 1 ear bud in & noise canceling headphones on, then an hour of noise canceling headphones & nothing else.

Little kids covering “Glorious Sons”, shared by Glorious Sons….

OK, Guns n’ Roses fans it’s coming & it could be tomorrow or on April 8th…………………..

“Royal Blood” shared it! I was just as excited to see them live as I was Foo Fighters last summer in Calgary. That’s saying a lot, they were both really good!

I don’t think Trump ever thinks before he speaks? He has no filter!

I’m not into politics at all. I can’t wait for the USA campaign to be over………………in November. Canadians can’t vote but what’s on every day at least once a day on every channel? The Presidential campaign. If they haven’t decided by now, what are they waiting for? A light to shine on who to vote for by God?

I’ve got to cut this short today. The stronger I get, the more chores I can tend to!

Hard rock fans, buy this “Red Dragon” album by Room 333, which is compared to “La Gargola” by Chevelle! https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/red-dragon/id917967693

It took a while yesterday in the late afternoon. I did get the “Sonic Highways” HBO series which I had bought for $20 while it was on HBO, the special features in the studios & extended interviews finally showed up. For a while yesterday I thought it might be a Cash Grab! In Canada or at least Regina, HBO is an extra $20 a month for 3 channels on your cable package. We had it for 4 weeks to watch 4 episodes of the series. I found it on iTunes for $20. I figured it’s cheaper to just buy it rather than spending $40 to just watch it & have it disappear.

Somebody wants some of the spotlight? Van Halen is one of those bands that should probably just tour now?

Somebody finally got the memo, it’s not the 1980s anymore, SURPRISE!

I saw “Who is Fancy” do this song on Jimmy Fallon from last night doing this song. Catchy song I have to check into this? Checked iTunes & it’s just a single. I don’t buy single songs because I never listen to them. If there is a full album that I like the most of the songs on then I buy it.

Tuesday on iTunes Halestorm fans!!!

How does a newer band like “Volbeat”, 4 albums, have “Anthrax”, 14 albums, as an opener/special guest? I like both groups, but isn’t Anthrax considered one of the HUGE 4 metal bands? Anthrax formed in 1981, Volbeat formed in 2001? At least they’re bringing “Anthrax” to Regina & Saskatoon!

Kim made me watch “Dancing with the Stars” last night. When she comes home I’ll be on the couch watching………………….BASEBALL! I’m assuming I’ll be sent to the bedroom TV to watch the game?

Songs I like. “Dave Matthews Band” I think I took the time to learn “Ants Marching” on guitar, very difficult for me to sing at the same time, that just never happened for me.
