I fell asleep to “Matthew Good Band” the album “Beautiful Midnight”

I exercised to “Lamb of God” the album “Sturm Und Drang”

Sunday night I really didn’t sleep well.  I was awake from 4:00 am on.  I did half of the total numbers of every exercise.  Tried to nap but Brewster wanted to play instead.

Weekly exercise total; 1080 pushups, 900 leg lifts, 450 crunches, 450 squats, 540 tricep pushups, & 180 back flexes.

What do I think about this whole cancer situation now?  I’m SO glad it was me.  I wouldn’t want to watch anyone close to me, friend, extended family, or close family, go through any of this stuff!  I’ve made my peace with this scenario now.

Do I like where I am right now?  Well yes & no.  I’m alive which is AWESOME!!!  However, I don’t want to continue exercising as much every day for the rest of my life.  I also don’t want to be a burden to those I meet or see in person.

Nobody saw this coming!  You don’t sit around & think to yourself “Ah, this person will get life changing cancer in the future!”  Nobody thinks that about any one in their life.

The weird thing is, this is my normal right now.  I wake up to pee in the middle of the night & without thinking about it, I get into my wheelchair.  Same thing in the morning I get into my wheelchair, put on my exercise clothes, check Brewster’s food & water, eat breakfast & get right to my exercise.

It may not be normal for anyone else, but it’s normal for me.  I wish I could do something spectacular for Kim.  She’s been a solid rock for me, even before I was sick.  She has never disappointed me in any way.  She’s fantastic & just does something nice out of the blue to cheer me up if I’m stuck in a rut or having a bad day.  I do what I can for her but it never seems like enough?




5 legendary singer/songwriters in the right place at the right time.  Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty, George Harrison, & Jeff Lynne.  4 of them happened to be at Jeff Lynne’s studio & figured they should record something.  They recorded 2 albums, nobody really knows about the 2nd album.  Fair enough, the 1st album makes you not want to think about the 1st one.  I’ve listened to the 2nd album twice I think?  Here are a few reasons why the first one is so good….


‘Headstones’ a Canadian rock/punk band covered “Tweeter & the Monkey Man”


Great but Big Sugar isn’t on the list.  Even standing behind the P. A. speakers they’re LOUD!



Today I got 2 albums ‘Tremonti’ “A Dying Machine” and ‘Dead Sara’ their 6 song EP

I fell asleep to “Lacuna Coil” the entire new album “Delirium” then “Lamb of God” the album “Ashes of the Wake”

I exercised to “Me First & The Gimme Gimmes” 8 albums on shuffle. 5 punk rockers covering famous songs. Chris Shifflet of Foo Fighters is the lead guitarist.

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

Nikki Sixx (bassist of Motley Crue & Sixx AM” played onstage with Megadeth


The latest release by Megadeth “Dystopia” was/is quite the upset for me.

These shootings have become far too common. Figure it out USA, whatever you’re doing now is pretty sad! BREAKING NEWS A SHOOTING IN…………. It’s not really breaking news anymore.

July Talk single on iTunes now. A full album should be released later this year!

Sports, I now it’s not everybody’s preferred topic. There is now a challenge in quite a few sports now, yes it is/will make the game longer no matter what but I have an idea. Take the official that made the call, the head official at the game, the person that requested the review, & decide the ruling right there. If whoever threw the challenge flag causes a scene toss them from the game. Don’t hide behind “Well the head official in timbuktoo says this is what the call should be”. Great, as a fan, I don’t care what someone says, who’s not at the game. Make the on field officials accountable for the ruling. Don’t let them hide behind what someone else has said!

Pentatonix, the deluxe version is preordered for release on October 16th!!! 17 songs. 16 originals & this cover…

Yes I grabbed the new Iron Maiden “The Book of Souls” album last night before I went to bed. Yes, it’s fantastic. It’s what you’d expect from Iron Maiden.

Soundgarden are in the studio working on new material!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Today’s workout was brought to you by “Me First & The Gimme Gimmes”

I know a TON of people don’t like baseball but record the next 3 games (Blue Jays in :30) starting tonight. The Baltimore Orioles & The Toronto Blue Jays hate each other & there is a lot of bad blood/history between the 2 teams. This series could get really ugly…….fast! Someone will throw at a batter for no reason, then the benches will clear & suspensions will be given.

Radiohead in the studio


I agree with this video. Radiohead’s 4th album “Kid A” was very disappointing for me after the first 3 that are classics for me each one better than the previous. I was never a huge fan of Jack White either but I can’t find that video. I think I should make a video like these about my distaste for Metallica.
