5 day exercise total; 400 pushups, 300 tricep pushups, 100 back flexes, 390 squats, 600 leg lifts, 300 crunches.

Tuesdays & Thursdays I do pushups & tricep lifts.  The other 3 “days of the week” are everything else.

I fell asleep to “Muse” the new album “Simulation Theory”.  I got it last night.

I exercised to “Chromeo” the album “Head Over Heels”

 

I woke up, got everything ready for my exercises, and then realized I really felt sick to my stomach.  It was 6:00 am.  I went back to bed to sleep some more.  I got up at 9:30 & felt much better.  Straight to my exercises, followed by some breakfast.  All is well!

After 5 days of not leaving the house or not having people here, I get bored.  I get cabin fever & not only want but NEED to get out of here!

My body is getting tired.  I’m looking forward to December.  I’ll do crunches, pushups, & squats.  From the 21st-26th, I will do nothing but relax.  On the 27th I’ll do the pushups, crunches, & squats until the end of the year.

I had my consultation with my surgeon regarding my back surgery.  Haven’t heard anything yet.  I’m supposed to have another MRI soon, on my back.  It feels fine & I assume nothing will be done, since the MRI will show nothing wrong at the moment?

I do usually end up watching WAY too much CNN though.  For me it’s like watching a terrible car accident.  If Kim is home, I don’t watch CNN.  “Why are you screaming at the TV?”  “Because this is RIDICULOUS!”

I turn it to our recorded “Ellen Degeneres” show from that day, usually the second she gets home.

 

New Muse is released today!!!!!!!!!  I’ve got 4 other ones (Into Eternity, hopefully at a home town show.  Chevelle, Opeth live & maybe Tenacious D) to purchase after Christmas I’m told.  We’re saving the cash for Christmas gifts.

 

A movie based on “Breaking Bad” that would be AWESOME!!!!!!

OH HAPPY DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  New Alter Bridge is being written, & assembling in April!

In other news, a musician cut their hair.  WOW slow news day loudwire?????????

Just when you think he’s gone too far he does this….

 

At every wedding I attend, I request the song “Ace of Spades”.  It is never played despite my request?

People really need to get over this!

 

America you’re doing it wrong!  Stop these ridiculous mass shootings (2nd amendment).  Activate the 25th amendment to get the president who shall not be named out of the White House!  Mr. Mueller get your investigation wrapped up ASAP or just let the Democrats punt him out the door!

I think the majority of gun owners are cowards.  You want a gun?  You can all have a single shot hunting rifle.  If the other person doesn’t have an automatic or semi-automatic weapon, why do you need one?  I’m running low on hopes & prayers.  Figure it out already!

Well I have a somewhat busy weekend ahead.  Saskatchewan Roughriders have a home playoff game on Sunday.  I’ll be there freezing my tushy off.  Kim’s not a fan of any type of football, last I heard she had some work to do for another company on the side?  As for Saturday, I’m not sure what’s happening?

 

CLASSIC ROCK BANDS FOR MY GENERATION

I don’t know how long this will be?  If it gets lengthy, I’ll have a part 3.  This will be older bands & current bands.  Reminder, this is music I have, some of it I couldn’t care less if I ever hear it again.

 

The Rolling Stones

 

Aerosmith

 

Black Sabbath

 

Guns n’ Roses

 

Nirvana

 

Soundgarden

 

Foo Fighters

 

Rush

 

Metallica

 

Beastie Boys

Likely a part 3 to this story.

So, MLB, Major League Baseball, wants to speed up the pace of play to attract a younger audience.  Great!  I’m all for it!  How will they attract a younger audience if younger people aren’t watching it already?  Isn’t the younger generation watching TV on streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Crackle, etc?  How is the MLB going to advertise on these streaming sites?  People of many generations already know if they want to watch baseball or not.  If a game takes 3 hours or 2 ½ hours, how will that entice a younger fan base that’s already tuned out?

I don’t watch NFL football because it takes 4 hours for a game.  I don’t even like it when a CFL game goes into overtime.  How will the NFL market the game to me?  I’ve already tuned out.  Just because I see an advertisement doesn’t mean I’ll watch a game?

WEEKLY EXERCISE TOTAL/ COHEED & CAMBRIA

5 day exercise total; 400 pushups, 300 tricep pushups, 300 back flexes, 360 squats, 600 leg lifts, 300 crunches.

I fell asleep to “The Trews” the album “House of Ill Fame”

I exercised to “Dead Sara” the self-titled debut album

This was intended to be earlier.  I got up at 7:30, the power was out from 8:00 to 9:50.  Brewster was freaking out, he has bad anxiety, we have small doses of valium for him, I didn’t want to give it to him.  Instead I spent all of that time with him on my lap, while I had breakfast & got as much ready as I could for my exercise & shower.  Even when the power came back on he was still freaking out.  We had about an hour where he’d freak out at the front closet, or approach it & I would clap my hands to make him stay out of that area, he hates loud noises so that’s what the clapping was for.

I’ve done my exercises, time to shower & have lunch soon.

I’ve decided pushups & triceps will be on Tuesdays & Thursdays, everything else will be Mondays, Wednesdays, & Fridays.

When I meet someone new, I get quiet after telling them I had brain cancer.  That’s always the first thing I tell people when I meet them.

I don’t want cancer to define me, & I’ve got no problem answering any questions they may have.  I’m just not a fan of telling my story over & over.  As much as I don’t want cancer to define me, it will always be a portion of what defines me.  I figure, there is no hiding my wheelchair or iPatch.  Might as well get that part out in the open & forget about it.

Other things that define aren’t visible, other than I wear shorts year round.  “Aren’t you cold?” is something I often hear in the winter.  If I was cold I wouldn’t be wearing shorts & a hoodie with my tuque & gloves.  I’m usually over heated, so shorts it is, who needs pants?  Pants are only for special occasions!

Other than shorts, an iPatch, & a wheelchair, there’s a TON more to me.  I do tend to shy away from large group gatherings because there are 2 things I don’t want to say to people.  “Hey, read my blog” & I don’t want to barf out why I’m in a wheelchair, with an iPatch, & why my speech is hard to understand.

The previous blog should have been titled TECHNOLOGY/BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN.

Well I’ll be glued to Netflix watching the 2nd season of “Making a Murderer”, as long as they don’t push it back to air this time.

And the plot thickens some more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Remember what happened last time Foo Fighters took a break?  Dave got bored, they recorded an album, released it, & started touring after 1 year “off”

Anybody watching “Orange is the new Black” on Netflix?  I gave up after a few episodes of the 3rd season.

How many covers do we need of the song “Shout” I have this original version by “Tears for Fears” on my iPod, but no other ones, don’t need the rest.

OK, I’m biased I REALLY LIKE Big Wreck!

“…a voice inside my yyyyyeeeeaaaadddd”

A balmy +28 Celcius inside here Wednesday & a balmy +26 Celcius in here on Thursday.

Two albums released today “Greta Van Fleet” & a 4 song EP from “Nothing but Thieves”

 

COHEED & CAMBRIA

8 studio albums & a few live albums.  I have 5 studio albums.  I only really listen to 2 of them.  My friend Elka turned me on to them.  They’re a progressive rock band.  The singer’s voice is quite high, so I’m sure they won’t be for everyone.  I got the albums only in digital form.  They recently released “The Unheavenly Creatures”.  It’s on my iPod on repeat since it’s release on October 5th to the 14th.  Here’s a few tracks from “The Color Before the Sun” & “The Unheavenly Creatures”……

Music from this weekend!  “Coheed & Cambria”, “Foo Fighters”, “Radiohead”, “Live”, & “In Flames”

Wear a shirt, listen to the band!

 

Really quiet weekend here.  All we did Friday was watch TV.  Got up Saturday & binge watched the rest of “The Fosters” on Netflix & now we’re done.

Watched the Saskatchewan Roughrider game on TV against Winnipeg 31-0 for the wrong team.  That’s 2 games in a row that the Riders have failed to score a touchdown with the offence on the field.  Bad time of the season to get into that habit with the playoffs around the corner!

After supper we tackled season 2 of “Atypical” on Netflix.   We binge watched 5 of 10 half hour episodes.

Of course today is us getting ready for the week, groceries, laundry, etc.  I’ve made my juice, boiled eggs & Kim is out to get some groceries at the moment.

 

THE CARS

More music my parents turned me onto.  All I have is a greatest hits compilation that I bought years ago on CD.  All I know about them is that the lead singer is married to a supermodel, whose name escapes me at the moment. The Cars used synthesizers for good, not evil like “Rush” did in the 1970s.

WEEKLY EXERCISE TOTAL/BECK

Weekly exercise total; 400 pushups, 300 tricep pushups, 225 back flexes, 360 squats, 600 leg lifts, 300 crunches.

I fell asleep to “Tremonti” the album “A Dying Machine”

I exercised to “Foo Fighters” the album “Concrete & Gold”

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Justin Timberlake is singing the “La La La La” part

 

I feel really good after I finish my exercise each day.  Especially when I tally up the total for the week, always remember though that I have the time to do this amount of exercise & yes I built up to those numbers.  I didn’t just wake up one day & go “Let’s see if I can do 200 pushups today?”  I started doing 10 pushups on my knees.  That was very challenging for me at the time.

Went to a consult with a surgeon regarding a bulging disc in my back the same surgeon that did my 3 brain surgeries.  I gave him a big hug, he saved my life.  Anyways another MRI & we’ll talk to him once he had it & looked over it.

This is my job, get better, be more independent, etc.  Sitting around watching TV or listening to music is great but it gets EXTREMELY boring after a few days.

I always complete my exercise before posting any of this, there are a few days that I’ll have breakfast first.  Usually it’s exercise, post a blog, & eat.  There are days I will wake up quite hungry though.

 

The Soundgarden song “Jesus Christ Pose” was released as a single on October 3rd 1991.  From the album “Badmotorfinger”

 

Went to our friends’ place for supper & birthday cake our “niece” turned 5 years old on Wednesday.  Sweet, “Criminal Minds” made its season debut on Wednesday.  “Making a Murderer” is back on Netflix today.  Kim hasn’t watched any of it, I know what I’ll be doing today!

 

Stormy Daniels got to tour with Pantera?????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

http://loudwire.com/stormy-daniels-touring-with-pantera-vinnie-paul-death/

 

“The Unheavenly Creatures” by “Coheed & Cambria” is out today!  I’m a casual fan of this group.  I could see how his voice would prevent album streams & downloads though.

 

Kids react to “Disturbed”.  It’ll be OK kids, I stopped listening to them after their 2nd album.  I stopped listening to them in 2004 or earlier?

 

BECK

He’s from the 1990s.  He released 3 albums, then disappeared.  He has since resurfaced recently, with 2 new albums I believe.  I was never really a huge fan of his.  He did sort of tap into grunge fans with the BIG hit “Loser” from what I believe was his first album or at least his first BIG album.  I only have his first 2 albums.  The second one has 3 or 4 songs I really like.  I’ll give the hit from his first album & a few I like from his 2nd album “Odelay” that I like….

 

1994   MELLOW GOLD

I’m don’t know why but this video/song were around every corner when they were released?

 

1996   ODELAY

Music from this weekend!  “Queens of the Stone Age”, “Metallica”, “Billy Joel”

 

Friday Kim got home from work & we went out for supper.  Brewster stayed at Sherry & James’ house.  They do that a LOT for us.  Brewster freaks out if he’s left alone, that doesn’t go over well with other condo owners here.  We went to Moxie’s.  I’m a BIG fan of their veggie Portobello mushroom burger!

Stayed in on Saturday.  Kim got some groceries.  We pretty much were lazy on the couch other than her getting groceries & making supper.  Then Netflix for the evening, into the 5th & final season of “The Fosters”.  I stayed up to watch “Blue Jays in :30”

Today there is a Saskatchewan Roughrider game on TV in Montreal & the final Blue Jays game of the season.  I’ll be parked on the couch while finding time to prepare some food for the week ahead & make a pitcher of vegetable juice also.  Kim was out taking family photos for friends of ours.

 

I really don’t like what stereotypical millennials are doing to EVERYTHING!  There are MANY exceptions to this though!  Millennials are said to be born after 1982, 1984, or 2000.  I was born in January 1980.  Maybe Trump as President has more to do with it?

 

Not many albums & not how I’d rank the Tool albums!

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

THE BEACHES

Brand new to me when I bought the album.  I heard, months ago that they played the Rogers Center/Skydome opening for Foo Fighters.  Dave Grohl actually calls a band & asks them “Hey, would you like to do a show or tour with us?”  I’d freak out if I could still play music & get a call from Dave Grohl.  No audition that I know of, he just hears the album & decides if he likes it or not.  New band on the rise, but only played the one show with Foo Fighters & then halftime shows at CFL stadiums in Ontario, I think.  One album called “Late Show” & I added the single “Give it up” to the album.  This is more like garage/indie rock, not my usual taste in music but I like this album each time I hear it & think to myself “I need to listen to this album more often”!

Music throughout the weekend. “Alice in Chains”, “The Pretty Reckless”, “Halestorm”, & “Dead Sara”

I got a new water bottle a few weeks ago that hold 1 liter of water.  I have dry mouth.  If I don’t have something to drink or sugarless gum to chew on.  I drink a minimum of 3 liters of water a day if not 6 liters a day.  If I’m going somewhere that evening, I keep it at 3 liters.  Most days it’s 4 or 5 liters then I’ll go to the washroom once or twice in the middle of the night.  I usually chew sugarless gum at the Saskatchewan Roughriders games!

We stayed in again Friday night.  Watched the Toronto Blue Jays lose……..again to the New York Yankees 11-0 or 12-0, I can’t remember?  Then we binge watched 3 episodes of “The Fosters” on Netflix.

Saturday we binge watched more of “The Fosters” during the day.  I went to a Saskatchewan Roughriders game vs. the visiting Ottawa Redblacks.

Dear Saskatchewan Roughriders,

The game clock started 56 minutes ago.  I’d like to see you demonstrate an offensive touchdown instead of relying on special teams & your field goal kicker?

Sincerely,

Me.

 

 

How disrespectful is that?????????????????????????????????????

 

Or you could just get a decent amplifier.  Guitar players are always searching for the perfect tone.  Guess what, it’s very hard to find, unless you’re lucky!  Find an amp that you’re 80% happy with.  Then there’s no need for any type of distortion pedal.  The guitar & amp are far more important than effect pedals, especially distortion & reverb pedals!

 

I have different bands, but that’s basically my shirt collection along with a few golf shirts & long sleeve shirts!

https://www.kerrang.com/features/the-13-best-heavy-metal-t-shirts-of-all-time-ranked/?utm_campaign=loudwire&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&influencer=true

 

Certainly not my list “Rush”, “Tool”, “Led Zeppelin” & “Lamb of God” so far down the list?  I’ve never seen “Rush” or “Led Zeppelin” live.  From the many acts, rock & metal acts, I have seen live.  “Tool” & “Queen” would be at the top of my list.  I did see “U2” in ’99 or 2000, they were AMAZING!  They couldn’t be on a metal & hard rock list though.

http://loudwire.com/top-hard-rock-metal-live-acts/

 

“Beck” preforms with “Gary Glitter” playing Garry Glitter’s 1979 hit “Cars”

 

Went to see “The Meg” with my brother.  Have you seen “Jaws” from the 1970s?  Either way, watch that for a shark movie.  Rachel wasn’t feeling great & stayed home.  Kim didn’t want to see the movie.  We went to my parents’ place for supper & met up with Kim there.

The Meg, we expected it to be a little loopy, my brother prefers “Deep Blue Sea” to “The Meg”.  I’ll leave it at that.  I did notice the odd nod to “Jaws” though.  Fun action movie though, not much more to it.

 

PENTATONIX

They have 9 albums out including the 3 Christmas albums.  They’re a 5 part vocal harmony group.  The majority of their stuff is all vocals with no instruments.  I think I’ve heard instruments in 2 or 3 songs, but it’s hard to tell.  They only have one full album of original material.  I’d like more of that but I can also see how that would be difficult in A Capella.  I don’t count the Christmas albums in any type of review but here’s a sampling of the other 6 albums….

 

2012    PTX. VOL.I EP

 

2014   PTX. VOL.II EP

 

2014   PTX. VOL.III EP

 

2015   PENTATONIX

 

2017   PTX. IV: CLASSICS EP

Music throughout the weekend. “Foo Fighters”, “Queens of the Stone Age”, “Alter Bridge”, “Dead Sara”, “Halestorm”, “A Perfect Circle”, & “Eric Clapton”

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

Friday evening was quite tame.  We watched “The Ellen Degeneres Show” as usual when Kim gets home, I watched half of the Blue Jays game, then we binge watched 4 episodes of “The Fosters” on Netflix.  We’re half way through season 3.

Saturday morning Kim picked up our friends daughter & took her out for a while.  I got up while they were out & watched the last 3 innings of the baseball game.  Then I watched the pre-game for Saturday’s Blue Jays game.

Then Kim & Hannah came here to paint, colour, use the sticker books, have lunch, etc.  By then I was watching the “Banjo Bowl” between the Saskatchewan Roughriders & the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in Winnipeg.  That finished & I watched Saturday’s Blue Jays game.  Once that was over, Kim wanted to watch more of “The Fosters”.  We binge watched 3 episodes & went to bed.

While Hannah was here, she was very intrigued by “Uncle” Chris’ new Roughrider green wheelchair!  She spent quite a bit of time going across our suite & turning around to go back the other way, after we helped her figure out how to use it.  She’s a better driver than me.  She also watched some of the football game.  She told me “Uncle Chris.  In our house, we always cheer for the Riders”.  Smart kid, she’s being raised by good parents!

Went over to Corey & Jolene’s place for a BBQ.  Beer + meat = good times.  A get together for a bunch of us to see Kayll, Shannon, & toddler Emmett!

Why bother making the announcement to not play a song?  Even “Big Wreck” did this with the song “Ladylike” from their 2001 album “The Pleasure & the Greed”

 

This was supposed to be about Mike Myers channeling ‘Wayne’s World’ but nothing says “Alice Cooper” like bubble machines!  Hahahahahahaha!  I love Alice Cooper!

 

 

PHIL COLLINS/GENESIS

I’ve always enjoyed Genesis & Phil Collins, together & Phil Collins as a solo artist.  Phil Collins was the drummer in Genesis while Peter Gabriel was the singer.  I don’t know if Peter Gabriel left or was forced out of the band?  Phil Collins took over as singer when Peter Gabriel was out of the band.  Who is Peter Gabriel you ask?  This guy…

I was born in 1980.  My parents didn’t listen to ‘80s hair metal, so I wasn’t exposed to that music.  I grew up to what they listened to.  I wasn’t exposed to my generation’s music until I was in high school in the early ‘90s.  I did purchase the Genesis album “We can’t Dance” which was released in 1991 & I probably bought it when I could drive or asked my mom to buy it for me at Costco?  All that I own now is a Genesis Greatest Hits album & a couple of Phil Collins Greatest Hits albums from iTunes.
