I fell asleep to “Paul Simon” the album “Graceland”, “Pearl Jam” the album “Yield”, & finally “Ozzy Osbourne” the album “Blizzard of Oz”

 

I exercised to “Odds” the album “Nest”

How did I deal with being physically disabled, very bad, I felt useless & I wanted to hurt anyone I could.  I wanted everyone to feel as bad as I did.  After a few months & a stern talking to from my brother, parents, & wife I finally snapped out of my rut, got over it, apologized to those I had hurt privately & publically, & moved on.  All of it was heavy baggage that got too heavy because of my poor reaction.  I was just angry at the world.  So I dealt with anger & depression.  The worst struggle with it I’ve ever had with it.

If you’re ever considering suicide or if you’re in a rut, please talk to someone that is more than willing to listen.  Please don’t ever think of yourself as a burden to anyone.  You’ll be surprised at the number of people you’ve had a positive effect on & how many people love you & care about your wellbeing.  I’ve never called a suicide prevention hotline, but they’re there & more willing to listen. 1-877-4747 if you prefer talking to a stranger about any type of mental illness, be it a friend, family member, or yourself don’t hesitate to call.  The sooner you let it out & talk to someone, the sooner you can relax & get the burden off of your back.

I got lucky, I’ve talked with my high school guidance counselor, university counselor, social workers, my doctor, a psychiatrist, my wife, & my parents.  Now I’m OK & not embarrassed to talk about it.  I used to be & it was a topic I tried to distance myself from.  Don’t be ashamed about it 1 in 5 Canadians have some type of mental illness.  I’m on medication for my depression, don’t be embarrassed if you’re told to do the same.  A lot of mental illness’ can be caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain.  The proper medication can be quite useful.

 

Think of it this way, if all of that doesn’t make sense.  If you have the flu, cold or anything like that, you probably go see a doctor, right?  So if you’re dealing with any type of mental illness, more serious than a flu or cold, go talk to a doctor.  Maybe you’ll be referred to someone more knowledgeable on the subject, but you’ve started a conversation about whatever you’re dealing with so just see it through now & meet them half way if needed.

When I’m talking about mental illness, it does not just mean depression.  It includes OCD, ADD, ADHD, etc.

Dear Corey Taylor & Chad Kroeger,

Get over the feud already!  Will this matter in 20 years?  NO!  Your music does not sound comparably similar at all.  Who’s better?  It’s subjective!  Your devious plan worked!  Nickelback released an album, you 2 started a feud, and Stone Sour released an album.  Both albums hit number 1.

Sincerely,

Chris (a music fan)

A new single from Trivium!  Just the single, no album from what I can tell

Since it is but a single, I bought it & attached it to another Trivium album or I’d never hear it.  I still have issues with “The Crusade” & “Shogun” although many people call “Shogun” Trivium’s best album.

The Foo Fighters’ “Concrete & Gold” album had better be a really good one or I can see Paramore’s “After Laughter” taking multiple Grammy Awards home.  I don’t really put much stock into award shows, but some are fun to watch.  Believe it or not, I know “Lamb of God” has won a Grammy & have been nominated several times.

Royal Blood’s single is up for best track “Lights Out”

 

Pentatonix new single “Dancing on my Own”.  Single only $1.29 on iTunes.  Bought it & attached to their full length album.  If I left it as a single, I’d never hear it!  I listen to albums, not a jumble of songs.

The average age for a kid to get a cell phone is 6 years old.  Why does a 6 year old need a cell phone?  I’m 37, I had a cell phone for a year 27-28 years old.  The cell phone didn’t save my life, at least not that I know of?  If celebrities like Ed Sheeran & Louis C.K. can survive without a cell phone, I can too!

All of this is from the past week.  I started writing this on Friday all of the information on this post, is a week of music info on Facebook.

My nerve is much better after 2 visits to the Chiropractor.  More stretching & one more visit should do the trick.  On my side overnight the doctor recommended a pillow between my knees, WAY better.  When the pain is completely gone, I’ll cut WAY back on my exercises until January.  So this is nothing more than an update.  A poor way to end a good year of exercising.  Good time to slow down though.

If retired life without a driving license is me sitting on the couch, I’ll do whatever I can to go back to work or get a license!  HOLY BORING!  I think I’m done with Netflix……………..I think I’ve watched it all.  I’m pretty sure I’ve seen “Deadpool” & “Batman vs. Superman” too many times!  Next……..”Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens” for the 10th time!  I listened to a PILE of music also while trying to get comfy on the couch.  Listening to whatever I had purchased this year & I’ve been working on my albums of 2016 since near the end of October.

This is the clean trailer & it still contains LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It’s a lot like an action movie that was handed to Kevin Smith to write the dialogue.  HILARIOUS!  I guess the script was written & re-written over the course of a decade!

I fell asleep to “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “….like clockwork”.  Guess who played drums on this album?  The name rhymes with Rave Roll?

I exercised to “A. D.D.” the album “Core” then “Alice in Chains” their Greatest Hits” the songs before singer, Layne Staley, died from a heroin overdose.

I remember Chris Messer telling me that the band I was with in university, should play “Man in the Box” my voice hadn’t completely changed from being a bass singer in high school yet.  The song was pretty difficult for me.

I exercise daily because I have to if I want to walk again.  I miss it when I’m supposed to be relaxing.  The part I really like about it is my rotation of T-Shirts that fit has grown!  Seems as though each week I can add another shirt into the mix.  This week started off with the addition of 3 T-Shirts.  That’s my wardrobe, concert T-Shirts & mostly shorts.

I really don’t like the heat!  Our windows face south so it’s always warm in here.  Even if the blinds are closed, even in the winter, it can get up to 89F or 28C.  Far too warm for me!  In the summer I can turn on the air conditioner to keep it at 22C.  In the winter I’m hooped?  I don’t even turn on the heat.  I did last winter & it kicked in 3 times, the rest of the winter it was really “hot in herre” even when I left the door open.  The heat from the sun kept it at a more than balmy 89F, 31C.  If we were going out I’d keep my shorts & T-Shirt on & bring my jacket with me.  I don’t wear my winter jacket much, usually a bunny hug/hoodie.  If you’re from Saskatchewan you know what a bunny hug is, if you’re anywhere else & say that, people look at you like you’re absolutely crazy!  That or on occasion in other Canadian provinces someone will say “So, you’re from Saskatchewan I assume?”

Today was another early morning after a long night got to bed around midnight, listened to roughly 2 ½ albums on my iPod. Woke up just before 6:00 am to pee, I was up I figured I might as well stay up & get going? Turned on the stereo & started putting dishes away that I took care of for Kim after supper, did the dishwasher that was full & ran last night & washed a few by hand since I made a breakfast juice last night & needed the pitcher for it. I’ve turned into a morning person Kim wakes me up during the week either before she gets ready for work or as she’s leaving for work. I like to get my workout/breakfast smoothie done ASAP so I can get this done & relax for the rest of the day ( around 2:00 pm or a bit later) is when I hit the couch & watch the late night talk shows I’ve recorded from the previous night. As soon as Kim gets home we watch “The Ellen Degeneres Show” together. I watch Jimmy Fallon, Conan O’Brien & Netflix if there’s time for it before she gets home. I keep busy with my workout, Brewster, & this blog before I get to relax! Weekends I occasionally sleep in past 9:30 am. I listened to the newest “Anthrax” album “For All Kings” at a reasonable volume, not 11!

Just when I thought Major League Baseball umpires had hit the bottom, they prove me wrong & keep digging. I think any fan, player or manager watching the Chicago White Sox playing the Toronto Blue Jays last night would have been absolutely disgusted with the very inconsistent strike zone. When the back catchers, hitters, pitchers, live spectators, TV spectators, and managers from both teams question you as to why the same pitch was a strike or ball 3 pitches ago is now the opposite, wouldn’t an umpire begin to think that he might be off a bit. Then you go & throw a manager out of the game for asking a question to a different umpire? The Blue Jays would have lost anyways but it shouldn’t have been 4-0, I’ll say 3-0 at the worst, the fourth run was laughable, & who knows what the other miscalls would have been? The entire game was a joke at best. Keep “..digging your hole..” umpires, I guess you haven’t hit rock bottom yet?

As much as I like Foo Fighters I’ve only seen them 4 times, that’s the same amount that I’ve seen Trivium? I like Trivium but they’re not Foo Fighters! I try to never miss a Big Wreck show in town. When I went to see them in ’99-2002 they were here about 3 or 4 times a year & I saw them each & everytime. Even when I was in the hospital, Kim & I would take Para Transit or our wheelchair van to see ‘Thornley’ in town a few times, the lead singer’s band while Big Wreck had broken up for a decade.

Halestorm’s Facebook site has turned me on to other artists I likely wouldn’t know about. They recommended ‘Highly Suspect’, who was nominated for a Grammy for Best Rock Album for their debut album “Mr. Asylum”. I can’t think of another rock group who has been a Grammy nominee for their debut album? That’s impressive for a rock band, especially now that rock music isn’t ‘cool’ right now.

LADIES, BASEBALL, & POP CULTURE!

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Paul Simon” the album “Graceland” & “Foo Fighters” 60 B-Sides on shuffle. Yet last night I fell asleep to “System of a Down” playing on my iPod?

My ying

And my yang

 

That makes 90 squats, 150 pushups, 15-20 minutes of yoga, & 420 crunches so far this week. Crunches & yoga are all in one day. Pushups & squats are three day totals, yet my T-Shirt still doesn’t fit that well?

 

Ladies, I’m going to tell you something about straight men. Some of us are extremely dumb, & I’m one of the dumbest ones. I need to be spoon fed everything “This is a song for all the fellas. Try to do what those ladies tell us….”

 

I’m so dumb I forgot the 2nd thing I was going to tell you!?

 

I got out of the shower this morning, brushed my teeth, got dressed & dropped my wedding ring under the bed. Took me a few minutes but I got it. I only take it off now when I shower. I used to take it off at work too for safety reasons.

 

President & C. E. O. of the Toronto Blue Jays, Mark Shapiro, finally broke his silence for a ½ hour interview on Prime Time Sports with Bob McCown yesterday. He’s been labeled as the number 1 villain since arriving in Toronto in late August. I think the fans just needed some reassurance that he knows what is expected from him. I hope this satisfies other fans? I wasn’t stressing about it, & I hope other fans don’t from now on. He said he’s meeting with Jose Bautista at Bautista’s house early next week. He would like to find a way to sign both Bautista & Encarnacion, both have been there for quite a while. Both of their contracts end at the end of the 2016 season. That’s $40,000,000 right there, plus the $20,000,000 their paying newly acquired (at the trade deadline last year) short stop Troy Tulowitzki. I think he might run into payroll issues? He’s been allotted roughly $148,000,000 for the team, same payroll as last year. For me it’s a wait & see situation. I don’t run the organization, so I don’t need to worry about it. I’m a fan, I sit on the couch for 3 hours & watch a game, sports entertainment. They can’t hear my coaching that I shout at the TV.

What would make me happier? If someone would actually coach the team how to bunt. Something you learn in Little League. Stick your bat out, hold so you don’t break your fingers, & deaden the ball onto the ground. Pretty easy but not for the Blue Jays players? Heck I could teach that from my wheelchair! Everything else we can forget about, they’re major league players for a reason.

This mid season firing of the head coach & winning the next few games happens in most sports with any team that does this. No there’s not much “Rider Pride” in Saskatchewan at the moment.

Who ever thought high school would be the best years of your life? I was told that while in high school. I hated high school, couldn’t wait to graduate. I wasn’t part of the “cool kids” crowd. I was just a kid going through the growing pains of puberty. My voice was cracking, my bones were aching, I had to start shaving, I had terrible acne, etc. High school wasn’t all that fun for me. I made a few really good friends, & tried not to ruffle anyone’s feathers. I went to our grad with a girl I had known & gone to school with from kindergarten all the way to grade 12.

Yes, I went to grad, not my idea! “Oh, you’ll regret not going!”. Nope! If I could do it all over again I would certainly not go to my graduation. So what I regret is actually attending my grade 12 graduation. Didn’t want to go to my high school graduation or my SIAST graduation! Best years of my life were out of high school. I made life long friends that were & still are great people but I don’t really want to think about my years in high school. No one’s fault that I hated it so much, it just came off as something I had to do, a chore to become an adult.

Right now are the best years of my life! I live with Kim, my best friend! What more could I ask for?

Unless these $200 Tool blankets come with a DVD, Blu-ray, VHS, CD, Vinyl, Cassette, Digital Download & a Beta Max full of new material, I don’t need it.

I really want to see “Joe Dirt 2” & then I heard “Free Bird” by Lynyrd Skynyrd was on the Soundtrack! AWESOME!!!!

I just thought this was really good & needed to be seen…

I’m not a fan of Jack White either. He’s just too much miss than hit for me. I’m also not big on Jonny Depp either.

There are quite a few other famous bands/musicians I have never liked. As for movies, if it has Jonny Depp or Keanu Reeves in it that shoots up a big red flag for me. Jonny Depp fired his agent because 3 movies in a row between last year & earlier this year tanked at the Box office, then he fired his agent. I didn’t see them, but I’m pretty sure his agent didn’t act in them?

^^I saw this movie since the original film from 1971 was really good with Oscar Wylde in it. If I nee to see it again, back to the original film for me.

Live, with their new singer, are much better than the last 2 or 3 albums they did with the original singer

I can’t see the new lineup/singer ever touching the “Throwing Copper” album. That must be a classic masterpiece for them!

7 years ago I passed out at work with brain cancer. Tuesday February 5th 2008. A day I’ll probably never forget, an instant game changer. The day I really want to remember is Thursday July 26th 2012. The day I was discharged from the Wascana Rehabilitation Center.

I have nothing against these artists, they’re doing what they want, and I don’t know them personally. I’m not a fan of their music though. I was waiting for these guys to be nominated in the big name categories they fit in to……
