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.

Rolling Stone Magazine’s 10 best albums of the year.  I’ll agree with 2 of them.

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.

….and the results show he is unfit to serve as President, I hope & nothing serious since he’ll eventually live in a jail cell.

Kim told me last night that she had today off, so I didn’t work out today.

I fell asleep to “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “Villains” followed by “Foo Fighters” the album “Concrete & Gold”

This song^^ is just completely sugar coated in reverb on the album.

400 crunches, 400 leg lifts, 160 back flexes, 20 minutes of planking, & 400 pushups.  Each morning starts with filling Brewster’s dishes.  100 crunches, 100 leg lifts, 40 back flexes, 5 minutes of planking (rest periods not included), & 100 pushups.  Then I lay on the floor, roll over in complete exhaustion, trying to catch my breath & carry on with my day.

Some people think I sit around all day laying on the couch watching TV, Movies, or listening to music.  If I’m lucky, that happens about twice a month, after my exercises or on the odd occasion that I don’t sleep well.

Unless I’m sick, there is always exercise going on & something to get to, that I normally wouldn’t have time to get to.  Remember, it’s not just me that has to be happy, it’s Kim’s place too.  Yes, Brewster is happy too.  Rough life for a dog.

On Wednesday, I spent far too much time working on the problem with my iPod.  All of my art work disappeared.  I still have an iPod Classic 160 gigabytes I got while in my rehabilitation in early 2012.

I do what I can.  Some cleaning, started cooking (on the stove top), I always handle the dishes, etc.  For some reason we went with a fancy stove that has buttons instead of dials.  I get very confused with which burner I’m turning on, or if I’m turning on the oven?

I fell asleep to “Nothing but Thieves” their self-titled debut album.  Their 2nd album “Broken Machine” is out in September!

I exercised to “Alice in Chains” the album “Facelift”.  Alice in Chains were labeled as a metal group that gained success with the grunge movement.  If the media labeled them as metal, Soundgarden could easily been thrown into that mix.

Sunday ended with us having supper in Corey & Jolene’s back yard.  We were guinea pigs for the new smoker, we’re alive, the meat was tasty & safe!

I really had to check my pride at the door at WRC.  I’d have a bath once a week, every patient had a schedule for a bath once a week.  Complete strangers saw me naked, covered me up once I was on the gurney, take me to the bath, lower me into the bath & wash me or more often Kim would wash me.  It was awkward at first for me but I got over that pretty fast.

When I started this blog & acted like Trump or worse I thought I truly deserved something fantastic.  I beat a life threatening disease, & everyone was calling me a “Hero”.  I bought in to everybody’s hype & forgot how to remain humble.  What should I have done instead?  Remain humble, not let the hype get to me, & just be thankful to be alive, which is good enough for me!  Unfortunately I realized that later than I should have.  When I mess something up, I truly am my own worst enemy.

What made me think of entitlement?  There was a guy who was doing physiotherapy at the same time as I was with my occupational therapist.  He flipped out on the physiotherapist, started swearing at her, pointed to me and yelled “I WANT TO BE DOING WHAT HE’S DOING!” The next day when I had physiotherapy I apologized to my physiotherapist, telling her “Sorry you had to deal with that garbage yesterday”.  She replied “It comes with the territory”.  I told her “It shouldn’t though”.

I’ll admit that I had a rough day also.  I didn’t yell or swear at anyone.  I just said “No, not today!  I’m tired & I don’t feel like doing anything!”  I went for a short walk with my walker, Kim, & my physiotherapist.  I apologized the next day for my behavior.  My therapist said “That’s OK.  Everyone has a rough day once in a while”.  However you want to look at it, it’s not right!  What I should have said initially is “Sorry, I’m tired & I need a day off from therapy today.  Is it OK if I take today off?”

Guess who was sitting next to me in our (mom, dad, & I) Saskatchewan Roughrider season ticket seats?  The guy who flipped out that one day in therapy.  I don’t like what he did but, forgive & forget I guess, it’s done now.

 

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

 

The countdown for the new Royal Blood album is out Thursday @ midnight eastern time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2 days

 

They’re both very HEAVY metal musicians, if this happens it could go either way for me.

http://loudwire.com/opeth-mikael-akerfeldt-may-start-project-with-devin-townsend/

 

So it’s Monday in the late morning & I just found out The Watchmen are co-headlining the Queen City Exhibition!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  WOOT WOOT

 

Finally “Despicable Me 3” in theaters June 30th.  I’ve been waiting for the release date to be announced!

 

I was emptying the dishwasher after my exercise & breakfast.  Then realized it has been a while since I’ve listened to this album……………..

 

So many people like to go on youtube or any type of social media & just drop a HUGE pile of crap on how much they dislike a movie, album, song, etc.  I’m guilty of doing that also.  OK, could you have done anything even remotely close to that?  Maybe, maybe not?  Until you can & have you might as well keep quiet.  When you do will your feelings be hurt if 2 out of 3 people just demolish your “art” on social media?  If you don’t like it, why are you even involved with anything to do with it?  Leave it alone & walk away or voice your opinion your own www.youtube.com channel dedicated to finding flaws in everything!  Most of us are old enough to make up our own mind!

 

I record & watch Jimmy Fallon & Conan the day after the late night showing.  I’m currently watching Jimmy Fallon.  Everybody rush out & get some “Tonight Dough” Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, 100% of the proceeds go to child charity.  You can eat ice cream while helping out & say “I had to do it for the kids!”  Just like miracle treat day at Dairy Queen!

Oddly enough, I was listening to this “Fleetwood Mac” album on Monday!

 

I think “Queens of the Stone Age” will be releasing their album soon?  Their Facebook page is active lately?  It will be their follow up to “…Like Clockwork” & 7th studio album!

 

Ozzfest meets Knotfest.  Probably too much metal for me?

http://loudwire.com/ozzfest-meets-knotfest-return-2017/

I have no problem with Ozzy Osbourne, Slipknot are OK I just prefer Slipknot Light, Stone Sour!

 

Just to cool not to share!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

The majority of metal fans are great people, just like every other community.  There’s a bad apple in every community.  Metal fans tend to get a “bad reputation.”

It’s gay pride week so if you’re an #LGBTQ member in or out of the closet, I fully support you as long as you’re a kind person.  If someone picks on you or makes fun of you because of your sexuality, I hope you have the strength to brush it off.  There are many idiots out there, but there’s also many people like me who fully support you!  Please don’t live a lie about your sexuality “Be Yourself” & own it.

I slept away Saturday almost.  Got up, Kim tried to go to the gym, but a water main broke at the gym, so Kim & Jolene went for coffee instead.  Sherry texted Kim while was still out & wanted to go shopping.  I was asleep on the couch & got up at 6:00 pm.  Extremely lazy day for me.  Sunday was quiet.  Here we are on a long weekend Monday, just sitting around with an ice pack on my extremely sore.  I’ll post this & then you won’t hear from me until my nerve is all better.

My doctor should be in the office tomorrow, hopefully with a referral for a cortisone shot.  I’ve been to my chiropractor, a massage therapist, & a physio therapist since mid-November.  A cortisone shot is my last choice.  He told me they can mess with the bone structure.  I’ve had 7 since 2008, I think I’ll be OK.

I fell asleep to “Diemonds” the third album “Never Wanna Die”, then “The Damned Things”

I exercised/stretched to “Big Wreck” the album “In loving memory of”

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

Remember that old mantra we learned as kids “Sticks & stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.”  Totally wrong!  A broken bone will heal in time, when you speak to someone you have to pay attention as to what you’re saying to someone new, or what might really offend a family member or friend.  “The pen is mightier than the sword!”  Still not true but much closer to reality.  A person might take words poorly, intended or not intended.  If it just comes out by mistake, you’re hooped, better start apologizing ASAP.  Hopefully the individual can let go of what was said.  Fortunately, I have great friends & family, who have forgiven me for things I said in 2011 & 2012.

Had my breakfast, then showered & weighed myself.  I was 265 pounds going into the hospital, the photo of me playing guitar in a white T-Shirt is me at 265, with a 38” waist, I came out of the hospital having a 42” waist, & today I’m 225.  Only problem is that some of my T-Shirts still don’t fit.  All of my fat went to my stomach.

I fell asleep to “Megadeth” the album “Dystopia” followed by “Vinyl Hero” the EP “7 Days on a Train”

I was watching CNN/”the fake news” all about the new guy, but I don’t need to tell you about it, it’s messy already!

Yep, I start physio therapy this week.  It’s long overdue that I get rid of this pinched nerve nonsense & get back into exercising.  I know that’s an odd thing to say but humans are creatures of habit.  My routine has been altered for over 2 months & I miss my routine.  Sitting around, stretching & very light exercise each day is really boring if you don’t have a driver’s license.

 

Top 50 hard rock/metal debut albums

There’s a lot of great choices there.  I’ll pick 2 from the list & there could at least 12 I’d pick.

 

Pearl Jam shared it….

 

Phil Anselmo, former vocalist of Pantera, reading a Sesame Street book.

I guess ‘Supergrass’ are still around latest release was in 2013, who knew?  I only own their Greatest Hits album from 2004.

I wonder what movie ends playing “Caught by the Fuzz”?

 

I have a question for you? I’ve been watching a www.youtube.com series called “Banger” with the review episodes called “Lock Horns”, made by Sam Dunn who made the documentary “A Headbanger’s Journey.”  The 2016 ending had a large board of “metal” bands.  Am I so jaded that I don’t consider “Coheed & Cambria” metal? I like their music, I just don’t consider them as a “metal” or “hard rock” band, should I?

 

My left hand doesn’t work that well.  I wish I could try out a mini original Nintendo or a Sega Genesis if they come back.  I looked up the price of a mini Nintendo, but no way Jose!

All of that being said, I really don’t have much free time for video games.  The newer controllers have too many buttons for me, even when I was able bodied.

 

New “Ed Sheeran” video.  I really like this tune, or Ed Sheeran in general!

I did more exercise/stretching than usual yesterday leg lifts, calf raises, & other stretches.  A little bit until it hurt, then repeated it later.  Not much new here, just trying to get my leg/nerve ache to go away.  It doesn’t hurt al of the time, when I stand transferring to bed, the washroom, or the couch, I know I’ve got about 10 seconds before my foot starts to tingle.

 

Did anyone catch President Barak Obama’s Farewell Address?  There’s a reason I’m not a speech writer, I could’ve written his speech in a very few comments.  “Goodbye.  Good luck. I love my family.  I’m moving to a different country.  Obama out!  (Drop the mic)”

 

Pearl Jam shared it….

 

I would likely get bored with this album if I had it.  It won best video of 2016 at the www.loudwire.com awards though.

Even listening to it for this short amount of time, I know I wouldn’t listen to it, just not for me.

 

New Big Wreck song

I think he’s a fan of Led Zeppelin’s “Houses of the Holy”

He called it!  “Physical Graffiti” is my favourite Led Zeppelin album.  I immediately thought of the song “Houses of The Holy” when he said “Physical Graffiti”!

 

10 facts about “Tool”

NO, THIS ISN’T FAKE!!  WATCH THE VIDEO ABOVE FIRST, THIS IS A REAL SONG!!!!!!

 

I realized that two of my favourite albums are 20 years old this year!!! Man I’m old and one is 30 years old this year. Big Wreck’s debut album & Foo Fighters’ “The Colour & The Shape” turn 20.  U2’s “The Joshua Tree” is 30 years old this year.  All 3 were/are BIG albums for me!!!

The one thing about my music is I never put my entire library of music on my iPod on shuffle!!!
