I fell asleep to “Nothing but Thieves” the album “Broken Machine”

I exercised to “Paramore” all 5 albums on shuffle

These are posted after I exercise, & I’m doing more exercise until I get to a spot I’m happy with.  Nothing will be increased next week.

Exercise total for the week is 1000 pushups, 700 leg lifts, 500 crunches, 300 tricep pushups, 300 squats, & 200 back flexes.

5 days a week for me start with my exercise.  60 squats, 60 tricep pushups, 40 back flexes, 100 pushups, 100 leg lifts, 100 pushups, & 100 crunches.  Cardio in the evening 3 times a week or 1 of those times on the weekend, with Kim’s assistance.

Once I’m done my exercises, I check my Facebook & email.  Have breakfast & hit the shower.  Lately it’s been lunch time by the time or later once I finish everything.  I don’t sleep in since I like to get up & get stuff over with so I can do stuff around here if it needs to be done.  My days are pretty busy here.  That’s why Sundays are busy with us getting ready for the week.  Getting meals ready & such.

 

WOW!!!!  Look at Stone Temple Pilots go!

 

6 of these I’m anticipating, 3 of them have release dates & I’ve preordered on iTunes.  If Tool actually releases an album I’ll believe it when I have it.  Tremonti is very close to being done the recording process for his 4th solo album “A Dying Machine”

http://loudwire.com/2018-anticipated-hard-rock-metal-albums/

Muse has said they would like to release an album this year.  So far they’ve released 2 standalone singles.


This is really cool!

 

Look at that!  No Canadian dates at all!

If it’s a true story about a serial killer, I’ll likely see it.

I don’t listen to Marilyn Manson.  I also don’t protest against him or his shows.  He doesn’t affect me, so why would I bad mouth him?  Same idea about other things.  GMOs, gay marriage, thrill seekers, marijuana, religion, etc.  None of this bothers me at the moment.  If food starts to taste different then I’ll complain about the lack of GMOs.  Until then, I really have nothing to complain about.  I’m Canadian, so I don’t necessarily have to deal with Trump, nor am I on Twitter.

This Blue Jays season is not looking good.  I hope they have a lot of players to back up injured players?  It’s only spring training & 2 regular players are injured.  The $20,000,000 Short-Stop is recovering from a bone spur that came about after he demolished his ankle midway through last season, & hasn’t played a game since then.  Now the, arguably, best pitcher on the team has an inflamed shoulder.  Good grief!

Now they’re thinking of Biagini as a starter?  They didn’t learn anything from his 3W-11L record as a starter last year?

WEEKLY EXERCISE TOTAL/MORE OF MY CLASSIC ALBUMS

I fell asleep to “Our Lady Peace” the album “Happiness is not a Fish that you can Catch”, “The Tragically Hip” the album “Trouble at the Hen House”, “Led Zeppelin” the album “Physical Graffiti”, & finally “Dream Theater” the album “Black Clouds & Silver Linings”

I exercised in silence today.  I’ve been having issues with my iTunes library, but may have it fixed today, I hope.  The guy I’ve been dealing with in the Apple customer service is FANTASTIC!  I’ve never been this impressed by any customer service person!  I’ve been working with him & the engineers at Apple for about a month.  He’ll call me out of the blue just to let me know he’s still working on my case.

 

500 pushups, 500 crunches, 500 leg lifts, 200 back flexes, 100 triceps pushups.  I achieved all of my exercise goals this week.  That always puts a smile on my face!

I could use a smile this week.  I’m getting stronger physically, which means I’m able to help out around the house more.  Kim is working herself way too hard, work & exercise for her boxing charity.  I try to get as much as possible done before she gets home, dishes, dishwasher, cooking, cleaning, etc.  Trying to do regular stuff at top speed gets me extremely stressed out!  By 3:00 pm I’m very hot/sweaty & tired.  I can’t tell you why or what I’m stressing out about, but I am.  Mostly it feels like there isn’t enough time in the day.

The reason I’m in a wheelchair is because I cannot walk without something to hold on to.  My legs work, I can get into our walk in shower after I carry my shower seat in there, I can walk with a chest high walker, I can reach the top shelf of our pantry by using the door frame to stand up, etc.  Our place has grab bars in each bathroom, & I have transfer polls I use to sit on the couch & to get into bed.

I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting older or just because I’m doing more stuff now that I’m able to?

November 11th is Remembrance Day in Canada.  A day when we take a moment to honour, thank, & remember previous veterans & current soldiers keeping us safe.  I think this year is what us forgotten Canadians really need!

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO CONTINUE TO KEEP US SAFE & THANK YOU TO THE VETERANS & THOSE WHO HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES KEEPING US SAFE!

 

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

 

This type of thing should happen at every public event!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I can’t tell you how onboard I am with this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Right at the door someone should send anyone with a cell phone back to their vehicle.  It happened to me years ago, & made total sense!  I had it turned off anyways.  You have to turn it off in a movie theater, why not a concert.  Have some self-control.  Take a picture & a video of your favourite song, then put your phone away.  If you can’t do that, leave it in your vehicle or at home.

 

No, I don’t listen to Marilyn Manson, but he makes a valid point here.

 

Paramore is actually selling cassettes online, odd.

https://store.warnermusic.ca/collections/paramore/products/after-laughter-cassette?variant=43380864844

 

When the Toronto Blue Jays start spring training I have a wish list for the team.  3 new everyday outfielders, new everyday short stop, and possible new 2nd baseman.  1st base, 3rd base, & DH can & should remain the same.  Biagini, Osuna, Tepera, & Ramirez all in the bullpen with others.  Estrada, Stroman, Sanchez, & Happ as starting pitchers.  If all of this is possible that would be great!  Any of the new players should have speed, bat left handed, & have a good batting average & on base percentage.  Mr. Atkins & Mr. Shapiro, please don’t put the fans through another 2017?

When Corey McDonald started SIAST shortly after me.  He showed me the path to what is now my favourite “Soundgarden” album “Badmotorfinger”.  I pulled out the “Superunknown” album, & Corey asked if I had heard “Badmotorfinger”, I hadn’t, so he lent it to me the next day.  Since then that album it’s my go to “Soundgarden” album.

 

After hearing that album once, I was hooked & bought it ASAP.  Corey then opened my eyes to “Pantera” & I got hooked on “Into Eternity” the album “Buried in Oblivion”

This was in the early 2000s.  I started SIAST in September of 2001, my 2nd week was when 9/11 happened.

 

I’m not crazy, someone else just praised “Batman vs. Superman”!  Others have seen “Justice League” & found it to be the best movie in the DC universe!

I have “Thor Ragnarok”, “Justice League”, & “Star Wars VIII” to see.  I see good times ahead!

 

Nooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!  This is MY dark side of Rush.  Foo Fighters & audience fan.  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I fell asleep to “Kelly Clarkson” here new album “Meaning of Life”, followed by “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “Villains”, & finally “Royal Blood” the album “How did We Get so Dark?”

I exercised to “Foo Fighters” 60 B-Sides on shuffle.

 

Sorry this is a little bit later than usual.  Got up early, exercised, had breakfast, showered & had a funeral to attend.  Rachel’s grandfather passed away (Mitch’s girlfriend).

 

400 crunches, 400 pushups, 400 leg lifts, 160 back flexes, 80 triceps pushups.

I woke up late on Thursday, & decided I really didn’t feel like exercising.  I woke up & then just stayed in bed for too long, keeping warm under the blankets.  Which means, I’ll be very busy today.  So there are the numbers for the week.

Those numbers are underwhelming for me.  I always expect more from myself.  I’m “my own worst enemy”.

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!         

I’ve never done that before except once when I was in the Wascana Rehabilitation Center.  Kim forced me to go to occupational therapy.  I had little to no desire to do anything that day.  I got to the therapy room & just said “No” to the questions as to what I wanted to do that day.  My physical therapist came out & fired some suggestions to me.  After far too long she asked if I’d go for a walk with my walker.  I went for a very short walk.  Instead of a 45 minute therapy session, I had a 10 minute session.  The very next day I immediately apologized to them both.  I didn’t raise my voice or swear at either of them, I apologized for being so incredibly stubborn.

 

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

 

Hmmm?  A bass player from Marilyn Manson’s band accused of rape.  Who saw that coming?  I believe, don’t quote me on this, Marilyn Manson was accused of sexual misconduct years ago during a show.  No, I don’t listen to him.

I don’t care what a singer looks like!  I’m only going to see them in the odd video or in concert if it’s near me!  Do they sound good?  That’s all I really care about.

Kelly Clarkson has released her album today.  The 2nd season of “Stranger Things” hits Netflix today as well.

 

LINKIN PARK

 

The latest release from Linkin Park is a total 180 from their earlier albums.  It got a lot of backlash from people saying it’s terrible.  I don’t think it’s terrible but it’s VERY different from previous releases, so much that I don’t consider it a Linkin Park album.  Here’s some popular/previous songs!

 

Now a few songs from their latest release “One More Light”

The Jays looked pretty good Friday!  I sounds like they’re more interested in bringing Dalton Pompey with them to the majors but not 1B Rowdy Tellez, I’m sure we’ll see him randomly throughout the season though.

I had a massage Friday morning.  Helped a bit for a little bit.  We then went for my blood test for my MRI, whenever they can get me in.  MRIs are very frightening to me.  Small & loud!  I had many of them in 2008.  My doctor asked if I was claustrophobic & said he’d prescribe a sedative when I go in, I’m terrified of MRIs.  We watched “The Accountant” Friday night cool show but I don’t need to see it again.

We listened to the new Ed Sheeran album over breakfast Saturday morning.  It was really good.  Over the last 3 years there has been one really good/diverse album.  A rap song, a reggae song, a pop song, a rock song, an acoustic song, etc.  Don’t get too comfortable in your seat, it’s going to leave you in 3-4 minutes.  There was “The Zach Brown Band”, “Ben Harper” & now “Ed Sheeran”.

Nothing too exciting here.  Kin’s going shopping with her sister & I’ll be watching the preseason baseball game……………………………I watch as much Blue Jays baseball as possible.  If I’m away I record the special “Blue Jays : 30”

I don’t just settle on metal, I couldn’t go 24/7 listening to metal.  My favourite albums at the moment are “Big Wreck” & “Ascot Royals”.  I really like the new “In Flames” album as well though.

 

My favourite albums are live albums with orchestra.

Does anything in the title really determine what anyone is like in person?  It’s never crossed my mind!  All I need to know is if I want to be around you, as a friend, or are ugly on the inside & I’ll let you do your thing way over there?  I found out one of Canada’s famous comedians was gay.  Apparently he came out when I was in the hospital & guess what………………….there was no difference at all.  Still hilarious, I had no clue he was gay.  He was funny before he came out & he continues to be funny!  Unless you’re a member of a terrorist organization or KKK, I’ll give you a chance.

I love “The Agonist” out of Quebec!  This is what type of music that calms me & put’s me to sleep.  Anywho, “The Agonist” shared it….

 

I have a Fender Telecaster.  From a good friend got it for me, signed by Ian Fletcher Thornley of Big Wreck, given to me while in the hospital.

Kim was running a bit late this morning so while she got ready to leave @ 7:00 am, I came out of our room @ 6:30 & got through 1/2 of my exercise. I get up & just get it out of the way.

I guess I should do a more in depth weekend update? Kim’s parents were here, I always like seeing them. They’re FANTASTIC people, that raised 3 great kids. Friday evening we ordered supper from “East Side Mario’s” & just watched some TV. Saturday everyone went shopping, I’m not big on shopping, I stayed home. Later on in the afternoon we went to Kim’s older sister’s place (Sherry & James’ place to hang out & visit. Sherry fired up the BBQ & made burgers for us all! Sunday was our day to do some cleaning & other stuff so Kim could be ready for the week. I showered, Kim buzzed my head as usual, so that I look like “Powder”. I cleaned what I could & tried to go as quickly as I could to watch a movie at my parents place in the home theater room in the basement. We watched “Deadpool” not “Powder”

Deadpool is an R rated action/comedy movie & definitely not for kids!

OK, that baseball game yesterday was laughable 13-3 for the visiting Tampa Bay Rays? Now I know what other teams fan base felt like against the Toronto Blue Jays in August & September last year. Good thing they had those fights with Texas on Sunday, it really made the team better & the millionaires will get their suspensions today, that will really help matters. Bautista & Encarnacion’s contracts are finished with the Jays at the end of the season. At this point, I don’t think I’d offer either of them a contract. Let someone else pick up the dead weight. Aren’t most sports a business of “What have you done for me lately?”? Bautista & Encarnacion haven’t done much of anything this year so far. The dollar amount for their contracts seems to be getting much smaller with each game.

^^I hope they all feel better now after they lost that game? A broken bone will heal, a suspension/fine will pass a WIN is forever.

Now it’s wait & see who’s suspended & how many people are allowed to be on the field. Each team has a 25 man roster. I counted about 4 people who will likely be suspended & fined.

AMERICAN IDOL/EXERCISE TOTAL

I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the debut “Self Titled” album

I exercised to “A. D. D.” the only album “Core” & changed it to “Alter Bridge” the album “ABIII”

I only listened to half of this album, just a portion of my workout.

Exercise total over 4 days. 90 squats, 200 push ups, 1260 crunches & 30 minutes of yoga.

American Idol confuses me & I’m 36. It’s not that the contestants are much younger & more talented than I’ll ever be. I’ve decided to just watch it & not even try to avoid it. Final season, I might as well? Somebody hit a BIG note, that’s exactly what the judges want to hear. Last year I remember the same judges saying “Hit a big note but know when to not use it” paraphrasing that. I’m 36 years old & that confuses me, how do you think a 14 year old would respond to that?

Yes, I have Dave Grohl’s autograph from a touring one day Canadian festival that stopped in almost every province in the summer of 2000, & yes, I almost peed with joy & excitement when I got it! It’s in a frame here with a poster that drummer Taylor Hawkins signed at a show in Saskatoon about a month after I had been diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer. I have 4 of the 5 Foo Fighters autograph’s. Guitarist Pat Smear is the only one I don’t have.

Well that would be a first. I know David Bowie has worked with Dave Grohl a few times. I’ve heard one song they did together.

It’s from Revolver, you know it’s going to be heavy……but will it be any good?

From www.youtube.com/consequenceofsound

The music instantly reminded me of “The Rolling Stones” in a good way, but we already have ”The Stones”. The guys voice is good but he’s no Mick Jagger!

I guess Marilyn Manson has his place……………..WAY OVER there. David Bowie cover inside the link.

This is good, it’s original, I’ve never heard metal music like this! Check it out, it can’t hurt to at least listen to it! To me it’s like metal light, but still good at the same time. Regina based band!
