I fell asleep to “Paramore” again the album “After Laughter”, followed by a 1970s rock compilation called “Riff Rock High”

I exercised to “Corrosion of Conformity” the album “Deliverance”, followed by “Alice Cooper” the album “Paranormal”

 

Yes, I’m getting tired of talking about him & watching CNN like it’s going out of style.  He’s on a 17 day vacation.  I’m sure I have never taken 17 days off in a row since I had a summer break in elementary school!  How do you lead one of the most powerful countries in the world & just relax for 17 days?  Does this mean American’s get 17 days off too?  Crap, he still has Wi-Fi & his cell phone, be ready twitter followers.  I guess there are some renovations going on in “…that dump…” now as well (The White House according to Donnie).

Stephen Colbert nailed it saying “Change the locks while you’re at it”.  Hahaha! I feel sorry for the American public!  Nothing but bad news for our neighbors to the south.  Didn’t turn out the way most of us wanted.  But just like a random mass shooting, what ya gonna do?

With Donnie on vacation for so long, I hear there’s a term position available at the White House!  Hillary, Bernie you have plans this month?

 

THAT’S ALL FOR WHAT’S ON MY MIND & CANCER TALK!  HERE COMES THE POPCULTURE STUFF! 

 

My T-Shirts decided to turn to dust all at the same time?  I’ve never owned a Royal Blood shirt though?  I should have got one when I saw them in 2015.

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

I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “Silence in the Snow”, then about ¾ of “Lamb of God” the album “Sturm Und Drang”

Early morning straight out the door for a message & a blood test before my MRI.  Preseason baseball to watch this afternoon.  In other words, I’ll be laying on the couch in a position that is comfortable for my leg with an ice pack on it.

I admit that at most times I was OK being the center of attention in comfortable situations or in a small group of friend.  I’m older now & I look like the loser of a brawl.  I’m OK not being the center of attention now, then I don’t feel as though I have to be “on”.  I still have issues meeting new people looking the way I do, in a wheelchair & with an iPatch.  However, when anyone wants to take a photo of my cousins & I, I’m asked to take off my iPatch & sometimes stand up with someone’s help.  Well I’ve never enjoyed anyone taking my photo to begin with & me without my iPatch, glasses, or wheelchair is just as fake as a poorly done photoshop picture.  How about no photos please.  I don’t look at them or have a camera.  Take photos of whatever you like, just not me please?

Basically what I’m saying is I used to really enjoy going out, now I go out of the house once or twice a week & I’m good, or else I get cabin fever.  I don’t leave the house every morning & drive to work, I get bored very fast.

 

Yep, I bought Ed Sheeran on preorder & got it last night!  I haven’t listened to it yet.  I got the deluxe edition.  It’s a 16 song album & I’d rather give it a more focused listen the first time around.

 

I forgot to mention yesterday that “Queens of the Stone Age” have completed the recording process of their new album also.  I think a new album from “Royal Blood” is almost a guarantee as well, from what I saw on Facebook a few weeks ago?

 

Pentatonix shared it….

 

I think one day of not giving any member of Trumps’ office any news or publicity would be hilarious!  They can ban any news source they want, & the entire media can choose whatever they want to report on.  The problem with this is ratings & news articles seriously drop if this is what happens?

I think I shared this earlier this week?  Here’s “The Pretty Reckless” live on Conan.

http://teamcoco.com/video/the-pretty-reckless-02-28-17?playlist=x%3BeyJ0eXBlIjoidGFnIiwiaWQiOjR9

 

Reissue of the “Singles” movie soundtrack on vinyl here for preorder

https://pearljam.com/shop/music/singles-soundtrack-vinyl-reissue-presale

 

I can’t really handle a lot of “Slipknot”.  They’re not too heavy for me.  I’ve got one of their albums which I’ve only listened to probably 4 times at most.

http://loudwire.com/shawn-clown-crahan-were-off-long-while-beginning-write-some-music-slipknot/

 

I find it odd when a band says “We’re going back to our original sound” like U2 said after releasing the free album to anyone with iTunes.  I don’t think a band should ever make that statement.  They’re setting the bar for their next album.  Hardcore fans will more than likely be disappointed & anyone else that hears the album could sway either way & be disappointed with the next album or the preceding catalogue.  I find that to be a faux pas.  It took “Metallica” a long time for most fans.

 

The Blue Jays have needs that could solve many of their issues staring at them right in the face.  They aren’t planning on using them though because they’re too young.  Their off season plan was to get younger & more left handed.  Rowdy Tellez & Dalton Pompey do both & they’re Blue Jays that came through the Jays minor system.  I wonder why this team hasn’t made it to the World Series since 1993?  Both players are young, left handed.  Tellez fills a void at first base, & Pompey can hit lead off while filling a void in left field, as well as having speed on the bases.  You still have a great bat on the bench with the injured utility player Steve Pearce they got in the off season who only has 100 MLB games under his belt & he’s right handed.  Let the kids play, & I’d drop Upton & Smoak in a trade for another utility player/bat off of the bench in a second.  Smoak has yet to live up to his potential & Upton is on the downside of his career.

I fell asleep to “Into Eternity” the album “Buried in Oblivion” followed by “The Damned Things” the album “Ironiclast”.  Moved to the couch when I woke up at 3 am & listened to “Foo Fighters” the album “The Colour and The Shape”

I’m just doing light exercising today, just to get my leg moving.  To this music “Oasis” the album “Be Here Now”

Waking up at 3:00 am because your leg is causing discomfort is not cool.  I got up & slept on our couch.  I didn’t want to flop around & bother Kim & our couch is much firmer than our bed, which seems to be a good thing for me.  The exercising I’m doing is very light in order to heal my nerve pain, just get it moving.  Leg lifts, calf raises (holding on to my transfer poll & standing on my toes), my stretches & then walking with my walker when Kim gets home from work.  It’s necessary someone assists me just in case.  I’m more than tired of this nuisance.

 

I have a question & I’d like to hear your thoughts please.  There’s a 20 something year old NFL player.  Every week they get a mandatory day off to do whatever they like.  This athlete chose to fly to Florida I think it was?  He got on a boat with some friends to spend the day on the water.  He put a photo of all of them together enjoying the day on social media.  He showed up the next day for the game.  He’s dropped 3 passes all year.  When he played after a day on a boat he dropped 6 passes.  Was that because of how he chose to spend his day off?  If there wasn’t social media many people wouldn’t know about it, & who’s to say that it, A) Affected his performance.  B) Does anyone know this is how he routinely spends his day off just & doesn’t post a photo on social media?  C)  Why is the team relying on one player determining the outcome of one game?  D)  What do other payers do on their day off?

Is he supposed to go over a playbook on his day off, or should he do what he wants on his day off.  Should he work to live or live to work?  Do you live to work or do you work to live?

Gotta give Jeff Buckley some major respect!  I couldn’t play any of his stuff on guitar.  That being said, I was just good enough to call myself a “guitar player”.  I was a singer that played guitar, mostly to hide behind, my on stage security blanket.

MERRY CHRISTMAS/HAPPY HOLIDAYS/ENJOY SOME TIME OFF OF WORK!

Being politically correct is really not for me, but there it is for you!

 

Nothing but Thieves – Self Titled.  I’d put this as my number 1 album of the year!  This is not a metal album!

 

Stitched Up Heart – Never Alone.  This & Alter Bridge are in a dead heat for number 2 on my list

 

Alter Bridge – The Last Hero

 

From here on everything’s tied for 3rd place!

Rob Zombie – The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser.  LANGUAGE!!!!

 

Ben Harper – Call It What It Is

 

Candlebox – Disappearing in Airports

 

In Flames – Battles

 

Third Ion – Biolith

 

Opeth – Sorceress

 

Sum 41 – 13 Voices

 

Anthrax – For All Kings

 

Highly Suspect – The Boy Who Died Wolf LANGUAGE!!!!!!!  The more I listen to this album, the more I like it!

 

The Pretty Reckless – Who You Selling For?

 

The 1975 – I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it

 

NOTHING WRONG WITH THESE ALBUMS, JUST LACKING SOMETHING.

 

Tremonti – Dust

 

The Agonist – Five

 

Chevelle – The North Corridor

 

Green Day – Revolution Radio

 

OLDER ALBUMS, LIVE ALBUMS & EPs

 

Scream – Fumble (Dave Grohl’s group before Nirvana)

 

Oasis – Be Here Now & Definitely Maybe

 

Barenaked Ladies – Live @ Red Rocks

 

Taylor Hawkins – Kota EP

 

Lamb of God – The Duke EP

 

Portal – Blood Red Tape.  Independent group from Alberta, Canada, I think?  They remind me of Tool.

https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/blood-red-tape/id292933756

 

Vinyl Hero – 7 days on a train EP.   Another independent group from somewhere in Canada, I believe?

 

Candlebox – Love Stories & Other Musings

 

It’s not that I don’t like EPs or Live albums.  EPs leave me wanting a full album of at least 10 songs & live albums are pretty much a live album of Greatest Hits.

 

ALBUMS I HAVEN’T PURCHASED YET LISTEN TO ON APPLE MUSIC

 

Diemonds – Never Wanna Die

 

Diemonds – The Bad Pack

 

Metallica – Hardwired to Self-Destruct

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

 

Bruno Mars – 24K Magic

I’d have to agree with the review.  There is nothing I should like about this album.  In the end, I love it & I don’t know why?

 

Boston – Boston

 

The Damned Things – Ironiclast

 

When the Holidays are over & Kim gives me the OK, I’ll purchase these albums.  If Apple goes under my purchased files are mine.  I, personally refuse to “download” streaming music aka Apple’s not taking away my music!  It’s a free country use a streaming site however you like.  Of course I’ll buy these gradually, unless we can make it rain with iTunes gift cards in January……………I doubt it!  Only took Metallica 33 years to release something original that I like & listen too.  Hahahaha!  I have 2 other Christmas albums.  Those aren’t buy now albums.

 

Just because I can!!!!!!!!!!!

 

My questions for anyone reading this.  What were your preferred album(s) this year?  Also, how would you classify Alter Bridge?  Are they rock, metal or right on the line between both genres?  I really want to hear from anyone reading this.  I’m not the judge of what’s good or bad.  Maybe you’re not a fan of rock or metal, that’s fine with me, I used to be completely against music with a distorted electric guitar involved, so please let me know?

Thursday evening was quite tame, 3 pints of Rebellion’s Flanders Red beer, TV shows & then to bed.  Friday was an extremely lazy day.  Laundry, I got supper & a blizzard at Dairy Queen.  Kim took me because I whined & begged.  We rented “Central Intelligence” good for a chuckle.

Saturday, Kim went grocery shopping & to the art show in the morning.  We went to my parents in the afternoon for supper later on.  My parent’s puppy, Goose, is currently 20-24oz.  A really fat hamster.  We came home just before 9:00 pm & the elevator wasn’t working.  Kim knocked on someone’s door.  He already knew & had called for the repair.  By 9:30 pm all was well & we were home.  Kim had a better idea than I did.  I figured I could do that many stairs, but we had Brewster with us which would make it tricky, Kim knocked on the door of one of the condo board members.

My mother & my cousin were hear for coffee earlier.  My cousin should be boarding her plane to go home shortly.  Iran the dishwasher, emptied it, made a juice for the week, & had a bite of canned peaches for lunch.  The rest of the day looks like I’ll be on the couch.

My mother has seen more than her fair share of people having cancer, especially since I was diagnosed in 2008.  Her mother died of breast cancer in December of 1999.  Since my diagnosis she’s seen many people not survive.  Our family friend who she met at work, our friend’s mother, my grandfather, my aunt, and another friend she met at work, & unfortunately her cousin has recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer recently as well.  I survived, I’m fine wheelchair & an eye patch, but I’m here!  I don’t think she needs anymore deaths to witness?  That list of people is more than enough!

People worry about me, too much sometimes.  When I eat, I HOOVER my food.  Sometimes I choke.  I had a rough day of chocking on food, & I was with my family.  I coughed & choked a few times.  I was fine & everyone was concerned.  I get it, that’s fine, annoying but fine.  This happens 1 or 2 times a week.  Everyone freaks out & in the end I’m OK.  Do people know that I also cough & “choke” at lunch when there’s nobody around?  I’m fine, please don’t worry about me.  If I hadn’t had cancer, I’d still be OK & people wouldn’t worry as much about me.  Hold my beer & watch this!

I fell asleep to “Alter Bridge” the album “The Last Hero”.  Got up to pee & fell asleep to “Nothing but Thieves”

I exercised to “Candlebox” 5 albums on shuffle

This month is kicking my butt.  I don’t know why but each day feels like I’m doing everything slow?  Not enough hours in the day?

I made a new rule for myself absolutely nothing until the exercises are done.  I asked Kim to wake me up before she went into the bathroom to get ready for work.  I got up, & had finished doing 100 squats before she left for work at 7:00 am.  I finished my exercises, showered & I’m having my juice, coffee, & water (3 liters of water is the normal amount for me a day, probably why I pee so much?)

Yesterday we had a power outage for about 45 minutes in the morning.  Brewster has bad anxiety & started trembling as soon as the power went off & I was feeling lazy, which seems to be the common trend lately?  I did all 4 of my exercises.  2 of which I only squeaked out half of the amount.  I don’t like that, I get disappointed when that happens.

 

I got 100%, how many can you get?  I found this pretty easy.

I’m rooting for “Pearl Jam” and why aren’t “The Cars” already in the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame?

I have but 2 posters framed in my man cave.  “Alter Bridge” which came with the special boxset (3,200 made) with 3 out of 4 signatures, & a “Foo Fighters” poster with 4 of 5 autographs.  Just missing Mark Tremonti & Pat Smear.

 

From what I can tell, it looks as though “Paramore” has 2 more guitar tracks to finish on their new album.  I’m guessing vocals & mixing to follow?

 

I haven’t decided if I like “Pop Evil”?  I haven’t really given them a chance yet either so….to be continued.
