WEEKLY EXERCISE TOTAL

If you like it, please share & subscribe?  If you don’t please give me feedback as to what would improve it for you?  I can’t please everyone but I can try.

A little disappointing on Wednesday.  I guess it really doesn’t matter.  It was very long & in the middle of the week, my bad.  This site had 8 viewings by 6 people from Canada.  On Facebook we hit 97 views.  I can’t tell who’s reading this but thank you!

I don’t want to overload you with links, pick what you want to know about & feel free to skip the other stuff.  The www.youtube.com  links are there for a point of reference if you don’t know what I’m talking about.

Don’t feel as though you have to open every link.

I fell asleep to “The Watchmen” the album “Live & in Stereo”

I exercised to “Royal Blood” the brand new album “When did we get so dark?”

 

Yay it’s Friday & I’ve been waiting for it!  Sure I’m at home all day, but I exercise, take care of Brewster, have breakfast, watch minimal TV, shower, have lunch, write portions of this blog, practice guitar, & then I’ll hit the couch & listen to some music.  Then it’s 3:00 pm or so unless the dishwasher or hand washed dishes need to be tended to, or I need more fruit & veggie juice or I need to clean up something.  I’m usually out of bed by 8:30 am at the latest, I tend to go to bed around 11:00 pm.  Once I’m up it’s go, go, go, until everything I wanted to accomplish is done.

500 leg lifts, 200 pushups, 5 minutes of planking, yoga, 500 crunches & 100 back flexes this past week.

That’s 100 leg lifts, 40 pushups, 20 back flexes, 25 minutes of planking, 100 crunches & yoga 5 days a week.  First thing I do when I leave the bedroom, then breakfast & a shower.

Yes, those are my current goals.  I think they’ll stay at that limit for quite a while.  You know me though, I’ll likely push to raise some of the numbers sooner.

I used to be a decent swimmer.  I never took swimming lessons as a child.  My dad grew up playing water polo & swimming in the morning before class at the University.  He taught me how to swim.  My grandparents’ old condo had a swimming pool.  He taught me there & in the summer at the lake/cabin. My grandparents’ owned, built by my great grandfather.  I used to swim with no problems at all.  Now I wouldn’t get into a pool or lake without a life jacket on.

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today.

AWESOME SONG but “In Flames” didn’t cover it.

How old are you?  Have you ever head banged this hard to Metallica at a stop light?

 

Royal Blood’s Facebook page

“Pleased to announce we’ll be supporting Queens of the Stone Age in North America in September/October. Tickets on sale 22nd June.”

Only Canadian date is in Toronto in October.  I guess technically that makes it a North American tour.  Toronto, just over a 2 day drive away from Saskatchewan.  Musically, I should move to Toronto or Europe.  Many North American tours are 20+ shows in America w/ 3 Canadian dates, Montreal, Toronto, B.C., & sometimes Calgary depending on the popularity of the artist(s).  Although Tool, Elton John, Ozzy Osbourne, Garth Brooks, Dixie Chicks, Blue Rodeo, Foo Fighters, In Flames, Trivium, Lamb of God, Megadeth etc.  Have at least played Saskatoon and a few of those have made their way to Regina.

 

TONS of great music for me being released this year.  I adore the new Big Wreck album. But the Paramore album “After Laughter” is on heavy rotation on our stereo & my iPod.  It’s much more of a pop album than previous albums that were the typical pop/punk/distorted guitars.

 

Just checked the ol’ iPod for counts of play on it!

30 times listening to Big Wreck’s ‘Grace Street’ & Paramore’s ‘After Laughter’

12 times for The Watchmen’s ‘Live & in Stereo’

The odd thing is I listen to our stereo more than my iPod!  I think I have a problem?

 

I’d sing & play these 2 songs at the band practices with my brother’s group!  He really doesn’t like these songs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’ve listened to the new Royal Blood album a few times this morning & WOW, no sophomore slump in sight.  I’d say it’s even better than their first album & it’s phenomenal also.

 

I went to a friend’s house last night to see his new place.  Pretty sweet place.  His condo looks great, could be that I haven’t scratched up, or demolished his walls with my wheelchair….yet!

I had 2 glasses of cranberry juice & sprite last night.  Bad idea!  I lost track of how many times I had to pee, I listen to portions of many albums!

“Halestorm” the album “Into the Wild Life”

“Foo Fighters” the album “There is Nothing Left to Lose”

“Foo Fighters” the S/T debut album

“Judah & the Lion” the album “Folk Hop n’ Roll”

“Big Wreck” the album “Albatross”

“Big Wreck” the album “…in loving memory”

“Nothing but Thieves” the S/T debut album

Being physically handicapped means nothing to me.  At this point, it’s normal to me.  It’s been that way for a while now.  I know some of my limitations & I know some of the stuff I can do.  Not necessarily limited completely.  My brother & his girlfriend live in a building with no elevator.  They live on the top floor/the 3rd floor.  It takes me a while, but I can get up there.  I think I’ve been there 3 or 4 times.  Rachel knows the deal when I get up there.  I’m greeted with a beer & a dill pickle.  That’s my welcoming gift.

I don’t really feel self-conscious in public anymore either.  If someone sees me & has a question, that’s fine by me.  I’ve never had someone ask me anything but if they want to, there’s no such thing as a stupid question.

I fell asleep to “In Flames” the new album “Battles”

More stretching today, no music.  I just do sets of 20 throughout the day.  Oddly enough, my foot tingles only when I stretch.  The other times I’m fine, until I try to do my exercise.  I’ll try to do something then my body chimes in “You can’t do that idiot that still hurts”!  I hate it when my body’s right!

Don’t feel as though you need to click on every link.

I was keeping it small this year.  Mitch, Rachel, Corey, Jolene, Hannah, James, Sherry, my parents, my grandparents, & of course Kim.  Saturday night we all had supper at Bobby’s Tavern.  After supper everyone but my parents & grandparents came back to our place.  We’re all getting old, I was in bed by 11:00pm.  Corey & Jolene brought me some Rebellion beer & a gift card for more beer when needed.  Little Hannah (3) brought me a fantastic painting with a big rainbow!  It’s on display on our shelves beside our front door.

Sunday morning we went to my parents to see my cousin from Saskatoon & her 5 month old baby.  Dad was making eggs benedict, so we made sure it didn’t go to waste.  Sunday & Monday, I was just tired.

Monday my parents took Kim & I out for lunch.  Kim & Dad took the day off.  We came home & tried not to make any sudden movements.  I think Kim won that one.  I came in here just to check my email, by the time I went back to the living room, Kim & Brewster were asleep on the couch.  If Brewster can get on Kim’ lap, he’s out cold!

I’m not the smartest individual when it comes to politics.  I’m pretty sure the mass shooting in a Mosque in Quebec are somehow related to Trumps ban on immigration of 7 mid-eastern countries.  Now he’s helping/causing terrorism in Canada.  Whatever terrorist group did this is saying “We don’t care what race or religion we kill.  As long as someone dies.”  Well I hope Trump is happy, the majority of us aren’t!

Did anyone else notice that the movie “1984” was among the top movie rentals on the weekend on iTunes?  Coincidence?

 

Well Ben Affleck says he’ll still act in the DC movies, directing NO!  If he’s not directing at least he’s still acting in it.

Dave Grohl listens to his first band “Scream” on Sonic Highways outtakes

I don’t think anyone likes listening to themselves.  Even your outgoing message on a phone for message manager.  Even on the few recordings I’ve been a part of, everybody hears their mistakes, not the good stuff and say “Oh, I should have done this instead of that”!

 

Trump wanted to make his mark.  He did already & it was an EPIC FAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That’s A LOT OF HATRED!  In a weird way he divided everyone while bringing us together.  Most of us can agree Trump’s not the person for the job.  Can we get Michelle Obama to take over & have Ellen Degeneres as her running partner?

Everyone is marching, protesting & refusing to let him be President.  If America voted to have him as their leader, who voted for him?  Remember he still has, I think it’s 11, accusations of sexual assault against him.  I don’t know if he can be allowed in the White House as President until he’s proven innocent of those allegations?  A President can’t really do much unless other politicians agree for the same law, from what I know.  (There’s a good chance here that I have no clue what I’m talking about).  United States of America, I don’t think so.  At the moment it seems more like the Divided States of America.  A President leads you, you’re in a “Free” country.  Now, more than ever, is when America has/needs to come together.  Democrat or Republican, it’s every American’s country, & you only get one so treat it well.  Bring back the American dream!  Trump is worried about illegal immigrants, I don’t see that being an issue at the moment.  I think the only immigrants to worry about right now are the ones who want to cause an act of terror.  The rest of them are likely too scared to immigrate to the USA.

I’m a little scared here in Canada.  Whatever happens in America, eventually affects the neighbors to the north in some way.  That I don’t agree with but I’m pretty sure there’s nothing I can do about it.  “I would never wish bad things but I don’t wish Trump well”

Now the KKK want to have a victory parade for Trump.  OK, if he actually shows up, that’s another strike against him.

My wife is mind blowingly INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  She fought everywhere in whatever hospital to stay with me.  She’d go home to shower & my parents would “watch over…” me.  She’d go home, shower & hug my clothes in my closet at home, just so she could pretend she was hugging me.  She had a cot to sleep on beside me.  Eventually in the WRC she started sleeping in my bed.  I’m 6’1”, apparently that’s HUGE?  This meant my bed was much bigger than most beds.  Plenty of room for 2 of us.  Good thing my brother or cousin weren’t staying in there 6’3” for my brother & 6’5” or more for my cousin, Mark Towers.

Where ever I was, Kim was with me.  Kim was “The Nurse who loved me!”  She REALLY stepped up her game so I could venture out to the lake & other places.  Everybody stepped up, friends & family!  I didn’t really realize I had cancer until sometime in 2009?  I slept 23 hours a day while I was in the Pasqua hospital, then I moved to the Wascana Rehabilitation Center sometime in 2009.  I’m no hero, I just did what needed to be done, & I still am!  You work at your place of employment, right?  My job is to get better ASAP, so I’m doing a job too, and the government pays me through disability & CPP (Canadian Pension Plan).  When I turn 65, all of that stops & I’ll live on my RRSPs.

The only thing that went wrong was that my mortgage insurance lasted 2 years, I needed 4.5 years & we ended up paying for nursing supplies because Kim was doing so much for me, instead of a nurse.  Kim started making paintings to sell as source of income, she’s still doing it, just not as much.

Kim’s hilarious too.  We’re on our 2nd box of Halloween chocolate bars.  I don’t like the “Temptation” of having sweets around.  If I see them I eat them.  The first box she put on the top shelf of our pantry.  Haha!  I can stand up by holding the pantry door frame.  Yes, chocolate is one of my many nemeses’.  We’re on our 2nd box now & she didn’t even bother to try to hide it.  No, I did not put Halloween candy on any shopping list, only $1,000,000!  That didn’t happen?  She avoided telling me we had chocolate in the house.  I found it on the floor of the pantry.  If she’s not hiding it, neither should I?  Last night I just took the box with me after supper, right over to the couch to watch TV.  I just turned to Kim & said “I’m not even going to pretend I’m just having 2 or 3”

Aren’t family & friends what it’s all about?  I don’t make aquaintants’.  I make really good friends most become “family” members to me & Kim.  Our list of friends is also very long.  That’s more of a reflection on others than us.  Give yourself a huge round of applause, you deserve it & much more!  Thanks for being AWESOME!!!!!!

When I got my driver’s license after my 16th birthday on February 29th, 1996, it was fantastic, I was free & my parents gave me their 1985 Chevrolet Caprice Classic, white wall tires & rear wheel drive.  When I had to get a newer vehicle I bought a used 1994 Ford Tempo, rear wheel drive was extinct.  I couldn’t stand front wheel drive.  Hated it with a passion!  Not a problem now!  I don’t drive, I have drivers.  Mom, dad, my other parents, friends, family & usually KIMMY!  Where was I……………………..

When I got my license, my brother, Mitch, was almost 9 years old.  I don’t know how many times (3?) I took him out for a “Mitch” day.  I didn’t need anything to survive, so my income was disposable.  “What do you want to do today?” and that’s how a “Mitch” day would start.

I’d take him to play pool, bowling, a movie, Pizza Hut buffet, whatever we could come up with.  Of course I wanted him to have fun & I’d treat him to a day on the town.

Now the rolls are somewhat reversed.  “Mitch, could you take me to this metal show?”  Of course he says yes, he hasn’t quite paid me back for the Slurpee’s I’d get for him every day after school on our drive home.  Kim hates most of my music, instead of buying 2 tickets, where one is a waste of money, I call Mitch to see if he’s interested in going to whatever show before buying a ticket.

Rob came with us on a “Mitch” day.  The LEGEN……………….DARY burp at the bowling alley.  Mitch cleared our bowling lane with the worst burp ever.  If I hadn’t heard it, I’d swear he farted!  I will never forget that burp “I think I threw up in my mouth?”

Of course when Kim & I got married he was my best man!  Luckily he had just turned 18 & was able to sign the marriage license.  Despite our 7 year gap we may have argued once, & I have no clue what it was about if we did?

I can’t begin to imagine how our friends & family members felt on Tuesday, February 5th 2008, the day I passed out at work.

This is me during my day, followed by music info because I want the music info as well.  If you don’t want to read it, don’t feel as though you have to, it won’t hurt my feelings.  You can read the cancer stuff, the pop culture stuff or not read it at all, it’s totally your choice & whatever you choose is just fine by me.  So don’t feel pressured to read this.

 

What did we do this weekend?  NOTHING AT ALL!  I don’t like sitting at home on a Friday or Saturday night but nobody we talked to wanted to play.  My mind says I’m 25 my body is more realistic at 36!  I did go to the Saskatchewan Roughrider game with my dad on Sunday.  I don’t have a handicap seat.  My father pushes my chair up 2 ramps, I go up 10 or 12 steps & our seats are right in front of us, seats 1 & 2.  Next year, in the new stadium should be even better.  About 2 steps from the main level.  The first level is built into the ground, & we’re in the top row seats 1, 2, & 3.  My mother can’t get to where our seats are at the moment so she has sold her ticket to the people beside us but has kept it in her name.  They’ve chosen to sit closer to field level in the new stadium.  Our seats should be easier for my mother to get to, so she’ll be with us!

Don’t get me wrong!  I enjoy other stuff also Harry Connick jr., Norah Jones, Nat King Cole, Classical music in general, etc.  It’s very subjective.  A good song is a good song.  My habits just lean towards the rock & metal side of things.

Foo Fighters with Norah Jones

I do like one Metallica album.  The one with the SFSO

 

The song from “Temple of the Dog” that you haven’t heard.

Monday “In Flames” will be releasing a video, tour & hopefully a preorder date?

 

I like Neil Young’s music but he has become a crusty old man & I’m getting crusty too.

It’s 2016, I don’t think a protest song works anymore.  If it was a country song billions of people would hear it.

Red Hot Chili Peppers albums ranked

https://www.facebook.com/LoudWire/?notif_t=notify_me_page&notif_id=1474020081460338

I’m not a huge fan of them.  I own 4 CDs “Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magic” which I never listen to, “By The Way”, “Californication”, those 2 I listen to occasionally, & the double album “Stadium Arcadium”  I listened to it once or twice & it’s been in hiding ever since I bought it.

LANGUAGE!!!!   Yes, I’ve sang this.  Not my style at all!  I prefer listening to this!

 

I’ll take “The Pretty Reckless” just for the song.  Full album out on October 21st.  The song by “Kaleo” is pretty good, I’ve just never heard of them before, sounds really good though.

Kaleo has 4 or 5 albums, EPs, & singles available.  Similar to Jack Johnson, just slightly heavier?  Gritty?  Nowhere near hard rock or metal.
