I fell asleep to “Ed Sheeran” the album “Divide”

I exercised to “Metallica” the new album “Hardwired……………….to Self-Destruct”


400 leg lifts, 160 pushups, planking, yoga, 200 crunches & 80 back flexes this past week.

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

I just added the crunches on Thursday, 100 crunches a day.  The crunches had nothing to do with my back!  I know what caused it, I’ve had back issues since high school.  My wheelchair seat was over inflated & the squats always hurt my back a bit.  So I’m going to continue doing 100 crunches a day.  I could also just twist in my seat to borrow a pen & my back would go out?  That’s what happened in grade 10?

Kim had Wednesday off, so I took it off too.  I got in the shower while she went out to get coffees & cinnamon buns.  We sat on the balcony before it got too warm.  I can’t get out there in my wheelchair.  Kim has to help me, or I can crawl out if needed.  Came inside watched a bit of TV.  Kim went for a roller blade.  She showered, we watched a little more TV, and then we went to see “Wonder Woman” in the comfy recliners at the Southland Mall.  I don’t know where it came from but we had a movie pass that we used today!

I spent 1 day a week, for almost exactly a year being in the pool during my physiotherapy.  I can’t swim anymore.  I was lowered into the pool by what’s called a “Hoyer” lift.  It’s basically a crane for people who can’t walk.  Once I was in the pool there’s a rail all the way around the pool for me to hold on to.  I was able to walk & do some different physio exercises, all while holding on to the rail.  The pool is only 5 feet deep & it’s heated.  It’s quite a bit like a warm bath.  I would walk to each side of the pool holding the railing.  I’d float on my back with weights on my feet & I was to kick my feet during that time.  One leg is stronger than the other, I’d kick my feet & go in circles.  My therapist had me try a different walker in the pool as well, that didn’t work out to well.


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


Remember “covfefe = coffee in Russian”


Sad that Ed Sheeran’s tune fits with Disturbed vocals


If this is recorded I hope it’s different than this performance!


Ozzy Osbourne & Nine Inch Nails to headline festival!



Wanna hear/see a clip of every “Muse” song on bass?  Looks impressive!


The first thing I thought when I heard Foo Fighters single “Run” was “Oh my, the riff really reminds me of Pearl Jam’s tune ‘Spin the Black Circle”


Another tribute to Chris Cornell.  This time a song by “Audioslave” shared by www.loudwire.com


20 songs produced by Kanye West, that I’ve never heard?  Rap isn’t my thing.  His birthday was Thursday!



The songs “Madness” & “Dig Down” by Muse are done with an electric bass I have never seen anyone else use.


Cool!  Another great tune from the new “Royal Blood” album.  This & Big Wreck were/are my most anticipated album of 2017, until I found out Foo Fighters’ may have a release this year.  Royal Blood is not a metal band, if you’re worried about that.  The singer plays a distorted electric bass & the other member of the group plays drums.  That’s all, just the 2 of them!


What happens when, Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park, reacts to teens’ reaction of the new Linkin Park!  Hahahahahahahahahahaha!

Sorry, a little late today did my exercise, then had breakfast & flipped on CNN.  It was difficult to peel my eyes away from the TV.  It’s like watching a bad car crash.  Looks like the world has never been so divided.

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.


Best hard rock albums of 2007.  Only the “Linkin Park” album works for me on this list


CENSORED LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Oh, I’m ready to “get my geek on”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Industrial rock/metal is not my thing.  I don’t know a thing about.  Here’s www.loudwire.com take on it though.


I bought these 2 CDs way back when & out of these 2 CDs I only liked the singles and I don’t listen to either album.

I didn’t buy this, but I know a lot of people that really like(d) it.

They lost me at “Du”

Courtney Love, Hole singer, to play murder victim in biopic regarding the Menendez brothers.



Seeing “Queen” was a once in a lifetime experience.  Of course we all wanted Freddie Mercury there!  Adam Lambert was classy, hit the notes & in no way tried to steal anybody’s thunder, especially Freddie Mercury’s.

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.

That was strange, yes I’ve heard of them before.  That was as weird as Marilyn Manson for me?  At least their happy with what they’re doing.


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.


Meryl Streep’s speech at the Golden Globes was very well done!!!!!!!!!!



Nine Inch Nails ranked.  I’m not a big fan, although they have a handful of songs I like


From the “Sound City” documentary


U2 are touring for their 1987 masterpiece’ 30th anniversary, The Joshua Tree!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I love that album!!!!


This song was recorded during the sessions of “The Joshua Tree” but it was shelved for years and later released on a greatest hits album


Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden) he beat throat cancer while recording the album they released & toured!!!  I’d give him my vote for “Rock Titan of the Year”



Who saw that coming?  Oh…………………..wait…………………………..EVERYONE!  It’ll be fantastic when Trump gets control of the red button!


I wonder what Trump thinks about all of the immigrants who got their citizenship to America & were injured or died protecting America?


So Maynard is doing stuff with “A Perfect Circle” this year?  I’m guessing no work on the supposed new “Tool” album, you know, his original band?  Or is this more misleading from the Tool camp?

What do I want for Christmas?  The relief of feeling OK without having this sciatic nerve pain.  I’ve had more than enough of this thing.  I get up & sometimes it’s this excruciating pain, & other times it’s as though it’s not there at all.  Pick one or the other please & just go with it.  The Jekyll & Hyde thing is not cool.  Be consistent please.  At least let me know what it’s going to feel like when I stand up?


I prefer an album that’s around 50 minutes long.  Eps just leave me wanting more.


I do prefer the Tool EP MUCH more than their following full length album “Undertow”, I’m a rarity in this discussion though.

I did it!  I hit all of my goals, & even exceeded one to make up for my performance on Tuesday.  Things are getting better & better.


Not only did the Jays lose on Wednesday, & they’re done now for the year…………………..again!  We had a second power outage last night?  2 days in a row.  At least last night’s blackout was only 20 minutes long?  Baseball season is done for me.

Goodbye Jose Bautista at the very least.  I hope somebody offers you $20,000,000/year.  I’m not a general manager, even a qualifying offer of $17,800,000 seems like too much.  He talks too much, can’t really back it up, & has become a notorious whiner throughout this past season.  The Blue Jays will look different next year, hopefully younger too?


Puscifer & Ronda Rousey take a shot at Donald Trump.  Thanks Elka!



“Alter Bridge” album review.  For me, each album is a bit better than the last!  Below the review is 1 song from each of their 5 studio albums.  LANGUAGE IN THE REVIEW!!!!!!

Article review from another site.



Pearl Jam’s Facebook status

“Vs. turns 23 today! Pearl Jam’s second studio album was released on October 19, 1993.”


Remember “Econoline Crush” one of THE Canadian rock bands to find success in the ‘90s?  Here’s their Facebook status………….


EC has signed a deal with the Canadian independent label Strong and Free. The label and staff are working hard to get us up to speed. In the meantime we are currently working on a full length recording to be completed and released early 2017. We will also be releasing other material such as remixes, demos, videos and songs. Thanks again for your love and support.”


WHY?!  That’s an extremely light sentence in comparison to the crime & what his daughter will live with for the rest of her life!



Ellen Degeneres feels grateful for the life she has!



Thanks mom!  A Canadian beer commercial!  Hahahahahahahaha!

My exercise total will be a bit off this week.  More important stuff to do than exercise.  I still managed to do most of them.  I just don’t have it in me this week.  I’ve done a significant amount of every exercise every day, I’m REALLY tired this week?  It’s 12:30pm now & I’m ready to crawl back into bed.  Monday I did everything & hit the numbers fine, the rest of the week is somewhat disappointing to me.



Consequence of Sound’s Gerber & Gerber review “The Magnificent 7”


17 years ago “Nine Inch Nails” released “The Fragile”.  Sorry, I know very little about “Nine Inch Nails”.  I never got into them?



Opeth has released another new song!




I get it, I’m against free music as well, he’s made his money in the ‘90s with Oasis.  The question for me is, what if gas for your vehicle was valued at the same price as a “coffee” at Starbucks?  Would people walk more, bike, take the bus, call a cab, or complain about the price of gas?  People didn’t complain about the price of music before Napster.  Now everyone expects music to be free because of Napster.  You get a 700 ml of coffee for $5.00 we’ll say so if gas was valued at that much you shouldn’t complain?  Do you need a vehicle or a coffee?  That would make a gas price of roughly just under $6.00?



Bands that have released their first album I the 21st Century


At least they named “Trivium”, “Lamb of God”, & “The Devin Townsend Project”


Yep, Moby’s still out there doing his thing



“Band of Horses” played this on Jimmy Fallon last night.  I looked into them a bit & wasn’t sold on them.

Exercise total; 280 leg lifts & 3850 crunches, 40 push ups

First week, 4 day week, of exercise after 2 weeks with a very sore back. Lots of stretching still. I’m still not quite at my desired total. I haven’t done a squat or push up yet, squats really work my back muscles also. I’m still shooting for my regular daily total.

80 squats, 1500 crunches, 140 leg lifts & 60 push ups everyday, 5 days a week. I’ll probably get there next week.

I forgot one cover song.

This is just sad to have this happening all over the world.

I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “Silence in the Snow”

I exercised first to “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “Rated-R” then “Kyuss” the album “Blues for the Red Sun”

You’ve probably never heard of “Kyuss” unless you’re a huge fan of “Queens of the Stone Age” or “Foo Fighters”. “Kyuss? Was Josh Homme’s group before he started “Queens….”. If you watched the ‘Sonic Highways’ mini series Foo Fighters have a song called “Outside”. “Kyuss” practiced in the middle of the desert out side of L.A. because they were too loud to rehearse in a house, to close to neighbours.

I use both. I don’t understand or care to understand how anybody can be just on facebook? Why do you need an email for an email with limitations? Not everybody’s on facebook? Very few people send a private message on facebook. Yes, social media has it’s place. Most of the info on this blog is from facebook, that being said I could likely get all of this info by subscribing to 30+ newsletters. I assume the only problem with that is that they would all come at the end of the day, then you’d be getting yesterdays music/pop culture news. I guess all I’m trying to say is email vs. facebook isn’t a contest, they both have pros & cons.

Friday evening Corey McDonald came over to watch the Lamb of God documentary “As the Palaces Burn”, not the album, not the making of the album but the documentary of vocalist Randy Blythe being accused of man slaughter 2 years ago in Prague. It was filmed in 2012, the incident occurred in 2010. Do you remember what you were doing on a specific day 2 years ago?

Kim went out with Jolene & Hannah for supper & art supplies at the Dollar store for the times that we/”Auntie” Kim babysit Hannah.

Saturday we stayed in, we’re old! Kim did our taxes. I’m not employed, so mine is easy & full of zeros!

Sunday we were at my parents in the afternoon. We played some new music trivia board game they got for Christmas. The rules were VERY confusing. So it was sort of make up the rules as we go, while following our rules that were based on the vague rules that came with the game. We had supper there & just got home.

From this list I’d be at least checking out the following….Lacuna Coil, Alter Bridge, Alice in Chains, Zakk Wylde, I have Anthrax & it’s really good, Rob Zombie is on preorder already, I’ve got Dream Theater (awesome, fell asleep to it last night), I have Megadeth awesome, Linkin Park, Pearl Jam, & Tool.

There’s 2 that will be coming sooner than later I’m really excited about. Alter Bridge & Tremonti!!!!! Good times ahead this year!!!!!!!!!
