I fell asleep to “Megadeth” the album “Dystopia”, “Megadeth” the album “Peace Sells….but Who’s Buying?” & finally “Pearl Jam” the album “Yield”

I exercised to “Pink” the album “Beautiful Trauma”

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

After 2 days of being struck with a head cold & a weekend, my exercises were very difficult on Monday.  Tuesday evening we look at Brewster’s teeth, the little furry guy needs a cleaning & perhaps a few teeth removed, we’ll find out the price tonight!  The Finger Eleven & I Mother Earth concert looks as though it’s very unattainable now.  It may cost less than Brewster’s teeth, as Kim pointed out. It’s one of the 2 cheaper concerts of the 4.  Brewster & Kim are priority number 1 in this house!  I didn’t sleep well last night, I was stressing pretty hard, more worried about Brewster than anything.

I tried to watch the Super Bowl, sounded like an entertaining game.  4 hours of football is just too much for me.  I recorded it to see/hear Pink do the national anthem & Justin Timberlake at half time.  Even if the Canadian Football League goes into over time I get antsy.

Look this up on your channel guide, CFL scheduled for 3 hours, Major League Baseball scheduled for 3 hours, NFL scheduled for 4 hours!  Curling, golf, hockey, basketball, NASCAR, Indy car, etc.  I don’t watch those sports.  I watch the Toronto Blue Jays & the Canadian Football League.  I can’t watch 4 hours of football, however a 6 hour baseball game I can manage that no problem.

I know it’s odd, so here’s why.  With every single batter, each fielder has to think ahead as to what or where they are going to be with each pitch.  It’s a reaction sport.  Is the batter going to bunt, hit for contact, swing for the fence, how many outs are there, what base(s) have runners, where do I need to be if it’s hit towards these areas, etc.

I don’t know much about other sports, since I didn’t play them but I think along with the players when I watch baseball.  That may be a good reason as to why so many people get so bored?  I understand where they’re coming from.

The actual game I recorded to watch the musical performances.  I was also recording the movie “Lucy”.  It was on TV.  After being told it was terrible by friends of mine, I figured, “It’s free & there’s really nothing else on but the Super Bowl”.  I didn’t love the movie, & I didn’t hate the movie.  I thought it was OK.  I don’t need to watch it again.  Decent movie to rent though.  Another science fiction movie, leave logic at the door!

I fell asleep to “Opeth” the album “Ghost Reveries”

I exercised to “Alter Bridge” the latest studio album “The Last Hero”

 

500 pushups, 500 leg lifts, 245 triceps pushups.  I’ve upped the triceps pushups to 45 a day.  I have accidentally done 110- 115 regular pushups a few times, but I won’t add any until it becomes a regularity in my routine.  I might switch it up & throw in some back flexes on the odd day?  When I do my pushups, I don’t do a specific amount of sets, I go full on & do as many as I can (minimum 25) until I can’t do anymore.  I rest, then do the same thing, I repeat that until I hit 100 or more.  It ends up usually around 3 sets.  I’m pretty sure I could do more pushups, if I took more rest periods, maybe I’ll try 130 next week?  Once that’s done, I shower, eat breakfast, then I tend to other stuff that needs to be done here.

At the moment still, I cannot do any squats or more crunches due to my pending back surgery.  I had a disc slip out of place and I’ve had that off & on experience since grade 10.  I twisted the wrong way to borrow a pen, I went home for lunch, bent over to pick up a piece of paper off of my bedroom floor & BOOM I spent the rest of the day on my parents’ kitchen floor.  It has come & gone over the years.

Why was I doing 1,500 crunches a day?  Kevin Hart was on The Ellen Degeneres Show & said he does 1,000 crunches & 500 pushups a day.  I’ve got the time to exercise like crazy & there is/was nothing preventing me from achieving the same thing.  Well I proved that I could reach/exceed the number of crunches & I would like to achieve the number of pushups.  I’ll get to that total but it will take time & persistence.  I didn’t wake up one day and do 1,500 crunches, I built up to that number.  I don’t need anyone to tell me I can’t do something, I want to get better, I don’t want to sit here & feel sorry for myself.

Sure my life is different than most people, but what is “normal”?  Other than a B-Side by Foo Fighters, I couldn’t tell you?  Is your family or household the same as everyone else?  I doubt it, & it shouldn’t be.  Whatever you think is your “freak flag” let it fly.  Show it off & people that care about you will still be there for you.

WOW did that feel like a Yoda moment for anyone else?  Where did that come from?

Lastly, it’s the holiday season.  I’m tired & stressed a little more each day, & I have zero reason for it?  That’s weird & it affects my sleep.  If I can figure out what it is, I’ll be sure to let you know.

Everything is politically charged.  I’ve had more than enough of it & I’m not on twitter nor do I own a cell phone.  Why?  Information overload!  Nobody will talk to someone.  “But I missed the emoji, ah my life is over” if you say so?

Is Trump good for the entertainment industry?  No, because he’s everywhere & everyone has heard the same thing about him at least 50 times a day already!  Movies, late night talk shows, sports, music, etc.  I’d love to put something else on here but he is the definition of a “media whore”.  If it’s not a picture of him beside the definition on www.wikipedia.com wait until they update the website.

 

Hahahaha!  James Corden & Kristen Wiig sing the song “Hallelujah”

http://www.rollingstone.com/tv/news/see-kristen-wiig-beautifully-butcher-hallelujah-on-corden-w513555

 

Were they all good albums that 1000s of people know & bought?  I can fart into a microphone so it records, if I sell 1 copy, I’d feel sad for that individual & return their $4.  Quality, not quantity!

 

The thing I want to know is.  Why is it that a guitarist playing a solo on the higher end of the guitar, have to make a weird face as though they’re pinching off a loaf?  Is every solo that difficult or are they making it look hard?

What I personally know is A) I sang & played rhythm guitar, I played a very easy solo when I was asked, I also changed one of my guitar parts when asked.  B) How on earth do you play or sing after consuming alcohol?  I never ever did any type of drug or smoked cigarettes.  Before I was done on stage, I avoided alcohol.  I wasn’t a great singer so there was no reason to make it more difficult.  After we played maybe a beer.  I’d go home, unload my gear, and then relax with a beverage or 3.  People actually paid to hear us play our songs, I’d better make the evening enjoyable, & have a good night.  Any type of entertainer should care about what they’re doing!

I remember our 2nd drummer, who had recorded & played with/for professional musicians saying that the vocalist typically gets 50% of the money.  I thought that was odd & immediately said “We split it evenly, 25% each since there’s 4 of us & I’m the hack”!

I guess the Rogers Company still owns the Blue Jays but they are for sale.  A sale of this magnitude will take some time though if it happens.  Starting Pitcher Aaron Sanchez, who went on the disabled list 4 times last year due to a blister forming on his pitching hand, will resume throwing tomorrow.  Has the league changed the baseball?  There were many pitchers across the league that dealt with the same problem.  The players could tell the ball was wound tighter & the seams were lower.  All of this means that if a pitcher wanted to make the ball move, he would have to use more pressure on the ball with his fingers.  If the ball hasn’t changed, I doubt anything from a players stand point or injury will change.  More millionaires sitting around because they have a boo boo on their finger.

Next week all of the MLB general managers begin their Winter Meeting.  They go to Florida & talk about trades or free agent signings & see what they can possibly achieve or what can happen ASAP.  I’m sure there will be many rumours & moves made around Wednesday or so.

I can guarantee a Wednesday & Friday blog post this week, after that maybe 2 – 5 more for the year?

Friday was quiet.  We were going to babysit our friends 4 year old, but Jolene wasn’t feeling well. We stayed up until 11:00 pm & cleared off most of the DVR, except the Christmas stuff I saved for my mother-in-law.

Saturday was full of Christmas shopping online.  Me looking over Kim’s shoulder on her computer.  After I made my veggie juice.  Ran a couple of small errands Saturday evening.

Sunday I’ll be baking some fish for the week & boiling/peeling eggs for the week.  Kim had a work gathering at 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm doing crafts at a co – workers house.  I was watching TV & stayed home with Brewster.  Then we were getting ready for the week!

 

 

Well it’s finally done!  Myles Kennedy, the singer from Alter Bridge, is releasing his solo album, “Year of the Tiger” on March 9th 2018.  Between Alter Bridge & singing in Slash’s band, he finally has time to release his solo album.  This album has been in the works since 2009.  Slash is still doing his Guns n’ Roses thing.  Alter Bridge I assume are wrapping up their tour for their album “The Last Hero”

Friday ended for us going to “Chop” for supper with Sherry.  James stayed behind with Brewster.  Very good, yet pricy!  I don’t know where Kim found the money, but her sister came with us & paid for all 3 of us.  Thanks Sherry!

Saturday not great.  A) I called a customer service line.  I spoke with 3 different people + time on hold between each caller.  ½ hour or more on the phone.  The final person can’t help me & says as a sign off “Good luck with that!”  REALLY!  Did you learn that from Trump helping the flood victims in Texas?  He’d help out others & say “Have a great day!”  B) Roughriders lost to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.  Fortunately the Toronto Blue Jays actually won, in a game that meant nothing.  Strong rum & Cokes were flowing here after the incredibly stupid call.

I’ve been on the customer service side of things, all you have to do is agree with the customer.  They’re always right, at least that’s what they want to hear.  They’re usually wrong though.  The customer typically has no clue as to what’s happening behind the curtain.  I never lose my cool on a bad customer service representative, if I’ve tried to work with them & still have a problem, I calmly ask to speak with a manager that can help me.  Ranting & raving gets you nowhere, so why bother getting upset?  It’s something that doesn’t make anyone happy.

It’s like road rage.  You’re going to rant & rave while driving me somewhere I didn’t do it, nor can I fix it for you.  Unless you’re going to talk to whoever is driving the other vehicle, I don’t need or want to hear it.

Sunday we got up, found a legal loop hole for my problem & didn’t have to call the customer service line.  All is well!  I’m getting tired of fixing their problems though.  I’d stop using this product but it’s pretty much a monopoly.

“They’ve got us by the short & curlies…”

Made a juice for the week, some laundry to fold & put away.  Once that’s done, couch, baseball or Netflix!

I fell asleep to “Simon & Garfunkel” the 3rd disc of a 3 disc boxset I own, I really just wanted to relax!

Don’t feel as though you must open every link.

As much as I’d like to be known as a friend, cousin, son, nephew, grandson, etc.  I’ll be called all of those things ending with “…who had cancer”.  It makes sense though.  I am all of those things “…who had cancer”.  I’m Kim’s only husband, as far as I know.  I’m also Mitch’s only sibling, as far as I know!  I have multiple friends & cousins & my parents have 2 kids.  For friends, cousins, aunts, uncles, my parents or grandparents, “…who had cancer” is probably the easiest way to tell others who I am.  It doesn’t define who I am but it pinpoints who they’re talking about.  In that sense I get it & I’m fine with that.

 

I’m getting a photo/day of a Stone Sour member in the studio.  I know they’re done recording it, time for a preorder or a release date already.

 

Rock stars in drag.  If it was the ‘80s, it doesn’t count.  Dee Snider of ‘Twisted Sister’ does not count.  That was regular show attire for him.

Who can afford to go to Ed Sheeran in Saskatoon?  $117 for Kim & the same for me, & I bring my own chair????????????????  We’re out???????????????????  $234 plus gas & food??  Nope, I’ve seen him once with terrible sound!

 

I used to be a heavy drinker, now 4 drinks over the weekend is about maximum for me.  I’m older & don’t go out to establishments to drink.  If I do go out, it’s more so to purchase beer to put in the fridge.  I also don’t have a license.  I’m prevented from driving since I only really have one eye to work with.  Going out ends up costing more than necessary as well.  The new drinking & driving laws don’t really affect me much & my wife rarely drinks.

For me, it’s never really been about getting drunk, & less so as I get older.  Getting drunk in your 20s with your friends is one thing but I have more important things to do as I get older.

I fell asleep to anything & everything you can think of.  I had close to 3 liters of water yesterday.  I think I spent more time peeing in the washroom than I did sleeping in bed.

No, I didn’t hear each entire album.  I’d fall asleep about ½ or3/4 of the way through.  I got up had my 5 day/week breakfast of a hardboiled egg, black coffee, water, & a juice I make of blended fruits & vegetables that looks like baby poop but tastes really good.

I had my breakfast then had to empty the dishwasher & hand wash some dishes.  So I popped on some “Fine Young Cannibals”

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

I’m not kidding about the baseball thing.  “Blue Jays in 30” is for when I’m not around a TV.  I know what you’re thinking “Just watch it on a cell phone”.  No!  That totally defies the purpose of owning a large HD TV!

We really didn’t do much of anything but watch the first season (7 45 minute episodes) of Riverdale on Netflix after Hannah went home that morning.  It’s an odd show.  In the Archie comics the characters were very different than I remember.  I think what I wrote on my Facebook timeline suits it very well.

Live action + Archie comic characters + Dateline = Riverdale.  It’s weird but totally sucked me in, then Kim joined the party!  The gangs all there, Archie, Jughead, Betty, Veronica, Reggie, Moose, Josie & The Pussycats and more.  I guess the Facebook timeline calls it a teen drama.  I guess so Archie’s dad is played by Luke Perry, formerly of Beverly Hills 90210.

My sciatic nerve is holding up fairly well.  I’m hoping to get an appointment this week with my chiropractor?  My message therapist recommended it before my back goes haywire again.

I’ve got a question for anyone out there.  Have you seen the animated movie “Sing”, & how was it?

Our lead guitar player, Rydell, sang this & played the solo.  I took over the rest of the guitar.

Yep, I managed to hit these notes.  I still listen to U2.

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

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’d never consider “Tool” a metal band, they’re just awesome whatever they do!  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As for real metal I’ll go back to 1990.

 

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.

 

Yes, I’m more than ready for a Foo Fighters album!  Never soon enough for that!

 

This has always been a cool video to me!
