5 day weekly total; 600 pushups, 360 tricep pushups, 150 back flexes, 400 leg lifts, 200 crunches, 240 squats.  Some walking also.

I fell asleep to “In Flames” the album “Colony”

I exercised to “Lynyrd Skynyrd” a double album of their Greatest Hits

 

BOOOOO!  No new wheelchair until August 28th!  BOOOOOO!

I now know what my problem has been all week.  Monday & Tuesday were the worst days of the week.  It got better as the week progressed.  Sunday night & Monday night I didn’t sleep well at all.  I actually had a nap on Wednesday afternoon, I fell asleep very quickly.  I’m usually wide awake for an hour when I hit the hay.  I was out cold on Wednesday afternoon, & at bedtime the last few nights.  Today I felt more like myself.  “Exhausted” from my workout, but it’s the weekend!

I would love to take a break but I really don’t know how to relax, so a break won’t help in that respect, & a break means more difficult work to get to where I am physically.

Many people have no clue what I can or can’t do.  Fair enough, I surprise myself sometimes regarding what I can or can’t do.  If I can’t do something on my own, I’ll ask for help & approach it a different way on my own next time, if I can’t do it on my own I’ll ask for help again, etc.  After multiple attempts I’ll decide if I need help each time or if I can do it on my own.

 

Blu-ray, DVD, & possibly 4K on September 7th!

REALLY!  I wish I was ½ that good!

 

Keep Calm & wait patiently new Tool is not finished yet.  It’s been 12 years, we can all wait some more.

I googled apple iTunes regarding the elimination of downloads from the iTunes store & found nothing solid that it will continue to exist or be phased out early next year.  Every link denounced the previous link.  So, I’m not sure what’s true & what’s not?  There are so many streaming sites out there, you’d think Apple would keep a download site open?  I don’t know about the cost of offering both streaming & downloading.  I personally would prefer to own my music through downloading it rather than streaming it.  Call me any name you like, I’ll cross that bridge if it happens.

“Opeth will release Garden of the Titans: Live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on November 2nd via Moderbolaget Records / Nuclear Blast Entertainment. This historic event was captured for the DVD, Blu-Ray and Vinyl formats during their performance May 11th, 2017 at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver, CO. Both the DVD and Blu-ray formats include CDs containing the audio as well.”

Yep, I’ve struggled with depression for most of my life.  There is no shame if you need to talk to someone, even a complete stranger.  I’m on anti-depressants, no shame in that either.

Unwritten rule in the MLB!  You NEVER throw a fastball, for that matter a 97mph fastball, at a player!  The pitcher got a slap on the wrist with a 6 game suspension.  He’ll miss 1 start as a starting pitcher.  I say “OK, your seasons over!”

If you don’t want to pitch to him, give him an intentional walk or lob a curve ball at him if you’re angry.

 

“Got my ‘geek’ on”

Yes, we bought “Avengers: Infinity War” on Tuesday, & watched it for the first time EVER that night.  Great popcorn movie!  Check your brain at the door & be very entertained!  I did have a few minor issues with it though, well 3 if were keeping track.

The Story Line.

I hope George Lucas got some royalties for a portion of the writing.  I was thinking “Wow, I’ve seen a very similar story line throughout the original ‘Star Wars’ trilogy.”  Father saves his child while the child must fight against father.

 

SCENE STEALING

Did they actually steal an early scene from ‘Batman vs. Superman’?  Near the beginning of the film?  Tony Stark runs into the street to find nothing but mayhem & everyone running for their life.  Same scene almost frame by frame of Bruce Wayne running into mayhem at the beginning of ‘Batman vs. Superman’.

 

VILLAINS

The main villain has an army much like the villain in ‘Justice League’.  The army in “Avengers: Infinity War” looked much like the ones in ‘Stranger Things, season 2’.  Maybe I was thinking too much?  These 3 things stuck out like a sore thumb to me, blatant rip-offs that they didn’t even try to hide.

Those were the only things about the movie that bothered me.  Other than that it was a FANTASTIC movie!  I enjoy both comic book titans, Marvel & DC.

I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “Silence in the Snow” followed by “In Flames” the album “Sounds of a Playground Fading”

 

I exercised to “Slipknot” the album “5 The Gray Chapter”

 

500 crunches, 500 leg lifts, 375 pushups, 200 back flexes, & 25 minutes of planking.

That’s 100 crunches, 100 leg lifts, 75 pushups, 40 back flexes, & 5 minutes of planking each working day.

I think I figured out a portion, maybe all about a re-occurring dream I’ve been having since I was in the WRC.

I continually dream that I’m late for high school & I have an English paper that’s WAY overdue.  I get to school & have no clue as to what my locker combination is.

In University in 1999 my grandmother died of breast cancer.  I was a mess at the time.  I skipped out on an English final & drove to Moose Jaw & back instead.  With the 3rd Foo Fighters’ album that had just been released in November blasting the entire time.  My grandmother passed away on December 5th, 1999.

I guess that dream is more about me having some type of unfinished business to deal with?  Maybe it’s nothing & I’m reading too much into it?

No Trump talk!  You know what I think about him & you’re entitled to your own take on him!  I have never & will never condone violence to ANYONE.  If I thought it would change anything I’d give Trump a slap upside the head.

I’m typically not a political person.  Canadian politics bore me & I choose not to vote.  If I lived in the USA that would be different.  I watch too much CNN, since watching Trump lead the USA is much like his campaign x 100.

 

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

 

It’s August, there’s very little music being released & not much for music news but here’s what I could find.

 

Audio interview with Chris Adler, drummer for Lamb of God.

 

Audio interview with Corey Taylor, singer for Stone Sour & Slipknot.

 

Audio interview with Royal Blood.

 

 

Poor camera man!  Kim & I just laughed & laughed & laughed………..

 

When I was working, I’d listen to my iPod a double album of “Lynyrd Skynyrd” their Greatest Hits & “Systematic Chaos” by Dream Theater, or the odd podcast.  One ear bud in my right ear, other one down my shirt.  Noise cancelling headphones on.  Those 2 albums would pretty much last my 8 hour shift.

 

A 2nd song from Jack Johnson!!!!!

 

A PBS concert\documentary regarding Foo Fighters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/foo-fighters-rock-the-acropolis-in-landmarks-live-trailer-w498301

 

Jimmy Kimmel reads mean tweets from Trump supporters.

http://www.rollingstone.com/tv/news/jimmy-kimmel-reads-mean-tweets-from-angry-trump-supporters-w498287

 

Jose Bautista is too old to be the face of the franchise, he’ll probably ask for too much next year whoever he signs with & he’s a whiner.  Have fun on the Free Agent market at the end of the year, if you’re still with the Blue Jays at the end of August.

If Jose Bautista can hit 30 home runs this year, I still don’t think I’d renew his contract of $18,000,000.  Troy Tulowitzki & Jose Bautista would be the first of many players I’d try to dump on whoever wants to pay for a name.  Right there is $38,000,000 off the books of players not living up to their contracts!

 

My album of the year for whatever year it was, was “Nothing but Thieves” self-titled debut album.  Their 2nd album is being released on September 8th this year & here are the 3 singles they have released thus far…

It’s not close to hard rock, rock, or metal.  Lots of people my age & younger will not like this group.  I’m OK with that, for any music I listen to, I never said you had to like it.

August 25th new Queens of the Stone Age, September 8th Nothing But Thieves, Alter Bridge anthology, & Jack Johnson, September 15th Foo Fighters.  After that, who knows?

Anyone who has been reading this knows I’m very anti-cell phone.  I don’t have a problem with a cell phone really, it’s more with the way some people choose to use them.  If I’m at a concert & someone is taking a video in my line of sight to the stage, please DON’T do that.  I paid as much as you did to watch a concert.  Not through your 4” screen on your cell phone.  If you want to video a song or 2 go ahead, take 3 or 4 pictures.  Please learn that other people are there & not taking a video of the entire show like you are.  Ask people around you if you’re blocking their view of the stage.  If you want to sit at the show & text with someone the entire time, that’s fine.  I don’t understand why you’d pay for a ticket to chat with people who aren’t there, but if that’s what you want to do, that’s fine with me.  Everyone will use their cell phone differently.  Just please learn live show etiquette?  YOU have every right to use your phone as you choose, maybe make sure it’s not a distraction to others near you?

If I get a cell phone, I’ll likely use it differently than you do.  I’ll use it my way & you can use it your way.  If we are bothering others, we’d better ask if how we’re using it is a problem.  You’re told to turn off your phone in theaters before the movie starts.  I think that rule should be at any live venue as well?

Another review of the new “Alter Bridge” album “The Last Hero”.  LANGUAGE!!!!  Seems a though any& every “Alter Bridge” fan loves their 2nd album “Blackbird”.  It’s a good album but I’d say it’s the weakest of their 5 studio releases.

I was thinking to myself the other day. I must have been “The Best of What’s Around” for a third baseman when I played baseball. If you’re a back catcher, 2nd baseman, short stop or center fielder, hitting is a bonus, defense is usually the priority at those positions. If you’re plying any spot other then the ones mentioned or pitcher, you had better be able to hit. I couldn’t hit at all. Every game though I’d show up & look at the lineup for the game & 99% of the time it was Chris Fraser batting 9th, playing 3B.

I don’t know how good I was, but I wasn’t ever afraid of the ball. If the ball was hit in my direction, I’d attack it, like I was taught to. As long as it didn’t get passed me I was satisfied! I don’t remember ever diving for a ball, I did throw to 1B on the run though.

Knowing who was at bat always helped, more so knowing their batting tendencies & where the ball would be hit. I remember the lead off hitter for the Moose Jaw team would almost always hit a ground ball to me. Usually it was a guaranteed out. Bounce 2 or 3 times, smother the ball & toss him out at first base, roughly 127′ away.

I know exactly why people get bored watching baseball. It’s a physical reaction every pitch to the chess game going on in a players head. Everybody on defense has somewhere to be no matter where the ball is hit. When a hitter comes to the plate, you should be thinking of 8-10 different possibilities, and they change with each pitch.

The hitter & runner are thinking through different scenarios as well with each pitch. When I sit down to watch a ball game, I think along with the players. That’s why I watch as much Blue Jays baseball as possible!

EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL

I fell asleep to “Sevendust” the album “Kill the Flaw”

I exercised to “Alter Bridge” the album “ABIII”

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

https://www.facebook.com/A-Million-Miles-Away-Blog-1597618270456002/?ref=hl

If you’re following the blog on my personal Facebook page, could you please follow it on the link above? Just for me to keep track of subscribers.

www.amillionmilesawayblog.com for email

Exercise total for the week ;7500 crunches, 600 leg lifts, 300 squats, & 210 push ups. Started out Monday & only got to 20 pushups, hit my goal of 40 on Tuesday, then 50 for the remaining days. I was doing them on Wednesday, got to 20 for my first set & figure I had enough in the tank to do a few more. Now it’s 2 sets of 25 each day. Every exercise is like that now, I just go as much as I can then rest & match that amount in the following of my sets, be it 2, 3, or 4 sets.

Monday-Friday I do 1500 crunches, 120 leg lifts, 60 squats, & 50 push ups. 5 day a week. Once I finish that I usually have my breakfast right after of fruit & vegetables mixed in our Vitamix/blender, do a blog post then hit the shower or watch something on Netflix or one of the movies we own.

I find that I have more energy “these days”, & I continue to push myself more! As long a I have the time to focus on my exercise & of course loved ones, I seem to be in a much better mood than I have been in years. (Instead of being a “grumpy old man” at the age of 36).

Brewster drives me nuts on occasion especially if he hears a loud noise or if there’s a thunder storm coming on. Kim took him to the Vet earlier this week, all is well other than 2 things $1300-$1500 to get his teeth cleaned (a lot of plaque on his back teeth) we’ll see if we can do that in the fall? He’s also now on puppy Valium for thunder, like Thur evening. It’s bad for his liver if he has it on a regular basis, so the Vet said to give him half of a pill when needed & it worked Thursday! He wasn’t trying to hide in the bathroom, shaking, or panting like he normally does if he hears thunder. He was playing with us & then fell asleep on the floor.

Batman vs. Superman R-Rated Trailer and what to expect in the special features. I am so getting this! If there’s enough moola after Brewster’s teeth are cleaned? Available for purchase June 28th!

I have an old Mudvayne album, but I never listen to it? I think this is on it? Yes it is, I had to check my CDs.

http://loudwire.com/chad-gray-mudvayne-became-too-much-all-of-us/

I will never understand why so many people have said over the years that this is the best solo EVER? It’s art, so it’s subjective. Did anyone ever consider “Free Bird” by Lynyrd Skynyrd or any other song at all? I heard this on the radio as a poll from listeners while I was sick & I just listened to the Tremonti interview I posted yesterday and Mark Tremonti says it’s his most preferred song he’s ever written. OK I can get on the train where he says it’s his favourite Alter Bridge song, but best solo ever?

I fell asleep to “Puscifer” the album “Money Shot” after 3 or 4 attempts at other albums including “Prince” the album “Purple Rain” & “Pantera” the album “Vulgar Display of Power”

EXPLICIT LANGUAGE IN THE SONG BELOW!!! Prince never allowed any audio in his youtube videos. Here’s Foo Fighters covering “Darling Nikki” as a B-Side for single from “The Colour & The Shape” released in 1997.

I exercised to “Dream Theater” the first 3 songs on the album “The Astonishing”

Followed by “Lynyrd Skynyrd” a double album “The Essential” on shuffle

So now I’m living cancer free which is awesome! Those 4 & ½ years look smaller & smaller as time progress’. Can’t remember them nor do I really want to. Now I pay far more attention to my health. I eat much better than I did before. Sure I splurge like most people about 2 or 3 times a month or on the odd occasion we go out, which isn’t very often. The rest of the time I drink a mixture of fruit & vegetables I toss in a blender & have that for breakfast usually other than once a month that we go out for brunch. Lunch is usually a chicken wrap with a bit of grated cheese & Frank’s Red Hot. Supper is a wild card, usually chicken with Quinoa & wild rice in some form with some type of vegetables or a salad from Pita Pit or something along those lines. I eat less sugar filled stuff than I did before. Even my snacks are grapes, carrots or rice/pita crackers & hummus. 2 or 3 liters of water or a glass of cranberry juice to change it up a bit. If we go out, it depends on my mood, a salad or the tastiest thing on the menu. I exercise Monday-Friday for a little over an hour & I think we’ll be walking Saturdays & Sundays in our parkade with my walker & Kim holds me to make sure I don’t fall! I wish you all could meet her, she’s beyond AWESOME!

There’s no manual for surviving, surviving stage 4 brain cancer. I was told to exercise, especially my core muscles. So I spend roughly 1 ½ hours every morning exercising. My abdominal muscles are incredible, unfortunately they’re covered by a layer of fat. My mom suggested I try doing some squats! I’ve added that into my exercises. I have many exercises I can do here at home on the floor & stairs, walking & using the exercise bike in the condo’s “gym” aka a exercise bike & a treadmill.

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.

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”

Some very cool dough art as a tribute to “Soundgarden’s” album “Badmotorfinger”

“Guns n’ Roses” were destined for greatest at the creation of “Appetite for Destruction” released in 1987.

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!

HOWEVER YOU’RE GETTING THIS, PLEASE PASS IT AROUND?

REALLY HELP ME OUT & SPREAD THE WORD PLEASE!!!
