I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” a concert in Montreal from 2000 that I recorded on cassette since it was on the radio.  “Melissa Auf Der Maur” her album “Auf Der Maur”, “Metallica” the recent album “Hardwired……to Self-Destruct”, “Paramore” the album “After Laughter”

I exercised to “Halestorm” the album “Into the Wild Life”

I just couldn’t fall asleep last night, but I was awake & exercising by 6:10 am, had breakfast, shaved, showered, & done editing this

Exercise total this week; 500 crunches, 500 leg lifts, 300 pushups, 200 back flexes, & 25 minutes of planking!  Every day starts with me exercising, no shower, dress in workout attire, & no breakfast.  Once I finish my exercises, then I allow myself to have breakfast, shower, put on clean clothes, & usually in this room to work on the next blog.

Wednesday was 5 years of me being released from the WRC.  No more therapy for this guy.  It was sort of bitter sweet for me, I met some really cool people, but I likely won’t see them in person again.  People I’d see almost daily for 3.5 years.  It’s like when I passed out at work, another big change.  I did make it back to visit my former co-workers though, once.

As I’ve stated before, I don’t consider myself as physically disabled.  Sure there are many things I can’t do, many that I can, & some that I haven’t figured out yet.  If I need help with something, there is always someone willing to help.  Until I say I can’t do something, let me struggle until I figure it out, or until I ask for help.  Don’t be afraid to let me “…sink so I can swim…”  The further away I get from Tuesday February 5th 2008 & Thursday July 26th 2012 they become a distant memory that changed things a little bit.  I could continue to have a chip on my shoulder or much better, forget about it & move on.  I’ll easily choose the latter.

 

THAT’S ALL FOR THE CANCER TALK FOR NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

These are the 5 songs from the Foo Fighters’ album “Concrete & Gold” out on September 15th

The following are live songs.  They likely include LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would think any hard core Foo Fighters fan, such as myself, will be fine with the album & won’t hesitate when it’s released!

 

Carpool Karaoke

Would you like a Stone Temple Pilots bundle of vinyl, CDs, & a T-Shirt?

My super smart brother converted some old cassettes to iTunes files for me.  The high school Chamber Choir cassette that we went to Newfoundland had recorded a cassette of songs.  A Foo Fighters concert I recorded from the radio in 2000, & he tried to convert a cassette by Johnny Amore from my high school days.

 

If people are so terrified, they can avoid this tasty treat.  I’m not worried, bring on the Ben & Jerry’s!

What does Trump have to do to be impeached?  There can’t be much left?  Where there’s smoke, there’s probably fire.  There’s so much smoke at the moment, I can’t believe I haven’t died of smoke inhalation here in Canada?????????????!!!!!

REALLY?!  I MEAN REALLY?!!!!!!!!!!????????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I could easily do an entire post about Donald Trump going back on his own previous statements.  I don’t need to though.  Everybody has made up their mind on him, & I’m not going to waste my time or energy on him.  I think ALL of us should consider ourselves as Global Citizens & get rid of these dividing walls!  I’m not surprised by anything Trump does at this point, but I’m always extremely disappointed that he does whatever he wants.

 

Cool version of Aerosmith/Run DMC’s ‘Walk this way’

 

Alter Bridge shared it……

 

Pentatonix shared it & I’ll add another one from the same EP that I’m not sure about.

Every person has a different opinion & I respectfully disagree with the comparison to Disturbed & Five Finger Death Punch.

I’m not in my early 20s anymore.  I have 2 Disturbed albums in the closet behind me.  My brother saw Five Finger Death Punch before cancer, B.C., he burnt copies for me.  I have no clue where they are, & I’m more than happy about that.  They were cool for a week when I was 26 or 27.

Those 2 bands among many others are why I don’t listen to Regina’s “rock” radio station.  I do love Trivium though, they’re too heavy for the “rock” radio station.

 

Hahahaha!!!!

 

My weekend starts now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thursday evening Kim came home & we pretty much left immediately to see “Spiderman: Homecoming”.  FANTASTIC movie!  I know comic book movies aren’t for everyone, but I’m all in for the Marvel & DC comic book movies!  “300” & “300 Rise of an Empire” were really good as well.  I couldn’t get into “Sin City” or any other graphic novel movies though.

 

That was our Thursday evening.  Friday morning we woke up & weren’t sure what to do with ourselves.  I had 3 things that needed to be done.  We went out in the late afternoon.  I had my Roughrider jersey from Andy Fantuz fixed, Kim picked up a few groceries we needed for supper.  Brewster & I went along but stayed in the vehicle.  He loves going for a “car ride”.  A “ride” in the summer means he gets to drool/pant all over my arm until we’re somewhere I can roll down the window for him!

Friday, after the few errands were done, we just stayed home.  I watched the Toronto Blue Jays actually win a game & Kim put the house back together after a morning of cleaning.  She doesn’t just clean, she does “spring cleaning” every weekend.  Everything is 10 feet away from where it’s supposed to be so she can clean underneath where it was!  I just try to stay out of her way!

Saturday we went over to my parents place for some BBQ ribs after an afternoon in the backyard, with my mother & aunt.  I found out the hard way that Molson original 16 in a can is a wee bit too carbonated for me, I switched to rum & coke!

Sundays are pretty quiet here.  Kim’s got a few things left on the grocery list.  I made a juice for the week.  Peeled all remaining carrots to BBQ them then keep them handy in the fridge.  BBQ carrots & onion are commonly a vegetable for supper or some type of broccoli dish, I love broccoli!  I’m in the middle of a Blue Jays game at the moment.

That’s our weekend here.  Remember it will be quiet on the blog page until Thursday again, I’ll catch you then!

 

IF YOU’RE HERE FOR THE UPDATE, THAT’S ALL THAT I HAVE FOR YOU TODAY.

 

Another reason for me to NOT buy terrible overpriced Molson beer at the new Mosaic Stadium!  $9 for a regular size can of Pilsner, Coors, or Coors Light……..NOT HAPPENING!

http://globalnews.ca/video/3594992/we-had-our-hopes-up-sask-craft-brewers-disappointed-their-beer-wont-be-sold-at-mosaic-stadium

http://regina.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=1167315&binId=1.1165847&playlistPageNum=1#_gus&_gucid=&_gup=Facebook&_gsc=8qmzzbP

No Bushwakker’s or Rebellion?!?  No more beer for me at the new Mosaic stadium!  This no local beer really bugs me since the Saskatchewan Roughriders are a “community owned” team.  I don’t typically drink beer at a game, but lots of others do, & most of them don’t seem to care what it is as long as there is alcohol in it.  This “no community craft beer” rule is a laughable situation.  “Kick the little guy while we let the big corporate Molson Brewing control all & reap the benefits by charging our customers 300% than the store bought price”

If I really need to, I’ll get drunk at home, on craft beer & pay less while doing so.

FYI, I’ve only seen Molson Canadian being consumed by those that have just turned the legal age to drink alcohol or at a football game.  It’s like Fosters beer in Australia, Australians don’t drink much Foster’s beer from what I hear?

 

Haha!  Stone Sour #1 on Billboard hard rock charts.  It was just a matter of time.

I fell asleep to “The Watchmen” the album “Live & in Stereo”

I exercised to “Royal Blood” the brand new album “When did we get so dark?”

 

Yay it’s Friday & I’ve been waiting for it!  Sure I’m at home all day, but I exercise, take care of Brewster, have breakfast, watch minimal TV, shower, have lunch, write portions of this blog, practice guitar, & then I’ll hit the couch & listen to some music.  Then it’s 3:00 pm or so unless the dishwasher or hand washed dishes need to be tended to, or I need more fruit & veggie juice or I need to clean up something.  I’m usually out of bed by 8:30 am at the latest, I tend to go to bed around 11:00 pm.  Once I’m up it’s go, go, go, until everything I wanted to accomplish is done.

500 leg lifts, 200 pushups, 5 minutes of planking, yoga, 500 crunches & 100 back flexes this past week.

That’s 100 leg lifts, 40 pushups, 20 back flexes, 25 minutes of planking, 100 crunches & yoga 5 days a week.  First thing I do when I leave the bedroom, then breakfast & a shower.

Yes, those are my current goals.  I think they’ll stay at that limit for quite a while.  You know me though, I’ll likely push to raise some of the numbers sooner.

I used to be a decent swimmer.  I never took swimming lessons as a child.  My dad grew up playing water polo & swimming in the morning before class at the University.  He taught me how to swim.  My grandparents’ old condo had a swimming pool.  He taught me there & in the summer at the lake/cabin. My grandparents’ owned, built by my great grandfather.  I used to swim with no problems at all.  Now I wouldn’t get into a pool or lake without a life jacket on.

Royal Blood’s Facebook page

“Pleased to announce we’ll be supporting Queens of the Stone Age in North America in September/October. Tickets on sale 22nd June.”

Only Canadian date is in Toronto in October.  I guess technically that makes it a North American tour.  Toronto, just over a 2 day drive away from Saskatchewan.  Musically, I should move to Toronto or Europe.  Many North American tours are 20+ shows in America w/ 3 Canadian dates, Montreal, Toronto, B.C., & sometimes Calgary depending on the popularity of the artist(s).  Although Tool, Elton John, Ozzy Osbourne, Garth Brooks, Dixie Chicks, Blue Rodeo, Foo Fighters, In Flames, Trivium, Lamb of God, Megadeth etc.  Have at least played Saskatoon and a few of those have made their way to Regina.

 

TONS of great music for me being released this year.  I adore the new Big Wreck album. But the Paramore album “After Laughter” is on heavy rotation on our stereo & my iPod.  It’s much more of a pop album than previous albums that were the typical pop/punk/distorted guitars.

 

Just checked the ol’ iPod for counts of play on it!

30 times listening to Big Wreck’s ‘Grace Street’ & Paramore’s ‘After Laughter’

12 times for The Watchmen’s ‘Live & in Stereo’

The odd thing is I listen to our stereo more than my iPod!  I think I have a problem?

 

I’d sing & play these 2 songs at the band practices with my brother’s group!  He really doesn’t like these songs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mitch Fraser!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’ve listened to the new Royal Blood album a few times this morning & WOW, no sophomore slump in sight.  I’d say it’s even better than their first album & it’s phenomenal also.

 

I went to a friend’s house last night to see his new place.  Pretty sweet place.  His condo looks great, could be that I haven’t scratched up, or demolished his walls with my wheelchair….yet!

I fell asleep to “Judah & the Lion” S/T album

I forgot to get the remote before I got on the floor.  Stretched & exercised in silence.  Big Wreck will be playing constantly for the rest of the day here.

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

Time to get back to some exercise.  My nerve doesn’t really cause me any pain any more.   It’s really only annoying & uncomfortable.  I did some exercising today, drastically lowered the sets though, & no squats until this thing is gone completely.  More stretching, with a dash of exercise.  Stretching & sitting around is REALLY boring!

 

The Watchmen, originally out of Winnipeg, will be releasing a live vinyl record.  No date or price announced yet though.

I fell asleep to “Big Wreck” the brand spanking new album “Grace Street”.  Yes, I got it last night.  I was quite tired, only got about ¾ through the album.  This album is more “Led Zeppelin” influenced, whereas the previous album “Ghosts” was very “Dire Straits” influenced.  This album will be on heavy rotation here for quite a while.  It’s REALLY great!

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

As for an exercise total 100 leg lifts on each leg.  50 yesterday & 50 today, this is to be a part of my stretching & exercise.  Things are getting much better!

The office for my physiotherapist called Wednesday morning & had to cancel my appointment.  I have the stretches to do & all is going well.  If it’s an emergency they’ll try to fit me in.  It is MUCH better than it’s ever been.  No pain, just a tiny/annoying tingling feeling in my foot when I try to do anything like standing up or doing my stretches.  So no worries here!

 

No, really, it has nothing to do with the hard rock or metal music.  These news reports are truly fake news.

 

New Nickelback song & it isn’t too bad.  I’m not about to become a Nickelback fan, but I’ll say this is a different formula for them.  I don’t hate Nickelback, I choose not to listen to them.  Save your breath, time, & energy.  It’s music & they’ve hit the sweet spot.

 

I don’t want to get your hopes up but there’s a lot of fake Tool stuff floating around out there.  That usually means the real deal might be on it’s way?

 

There’s a photo on Facebook with all of “Stone Sour’s” gear sitting in hard cases.  New album?  Their cover photo is them recording, months ago.

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.

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

Friday night we stayed in, babysat for our friends who were off to see “Blue Rodeo”.  Hannah slept over aka I hit the couch & she takes my spot with “Auntie” Kim on the king size bed.  The leftover chicken fingers are a pretty good deal though.  “Uncle” Chris doesn’t mind!

As for the rest of Saturday not much happened.  Kim & I on the couch we rented the movie “War Dogs” based on a true story, a rated R story.  Lots of cocaine, weapons, swearing, & illegal smuggling.  Good/interesting movie but not for kids.

Today is shaping up to be a lazy day on the couch again.

 

When my Grandmother lost her battle with breast cancer on December 5th 1999, I was in my 3rd semester of Engineering at the U of R.  I was really lost at the time, totally missed a final on purpose.  I would drive 40 minutes away to Moose Jaw & blast their 3rd album, There is Nothing Left to Lose, which was released that November, all the way & back.

After her memorial the rest of my aunts, uncles, & cousins came to my parent’s house.  I didn’t know how to react.  I went to my room in the basement, put on headphones & blasted “I Mother Earth” the album “Blue Green Orange”.  That was the first big loss to me.  I was a mess at the time.

I guess all of this means that I mourn a death, tragedy by listening to music & other people deal with things their own way.  Whatever helps you in a rough situation & doesn’t bother anyone else.

As for Friday’s “Depression” post, well it can be any type of mental illness.  Talk to someone about it.  I can think of 8 or 9 people including myself that struggle with a mental illness.  Don’t be afraid or feel that no one will understand.  Don’t be afraid of taking whatever type of medication a doctor says you should try.  There are millions of people that will listen to you.  Please remember you’re not alone and you will likely need help from others, don’t feel embarrassed about asking for help.

I’m gonna go with the acts I’ve seen.  The other’s I haven’t seen or have no desire to see.

I saw Queen a couple of years ago with Adam Lambert singing for them.  I’ve never seen “Iron Maiden” live but I hope to change that one day.

 

Help Alter Bridge create the set list for an upcoming show if you’re going to see them?

I’d throw this into every set on the tour.

 

Weekend music; Judah & the Lion, Boston, Diemonds, The Damned Things, Metallica, & Megadeth.

^^ This what they played on Conan.  WAY better live on TV.  On the album it’s my least favourite song.

Katy Perry produced a commercial against hate!  I’m not a fan of her music, but this commercial is very well done!

66 hard rock or metal guitarists of all time.  They couldn’t at least round it up to 70, 100, or down to 50?  66 seems like an odd number number to stop at?????

Who I think is the most under rated guy on the list is…………..John Frusiante.  Sounds like it is easy, I couldn’t play it!
