I fell asleep to “Paramore” the recently released album “After Laughter”

I exercised to “Rage Against the Machine” the self-titled album

 

I’m 37 now, high school was a loooooooooooooooooooooong time ago.  Next year, I graduated 20 years ago.  High school isn’t something I think of very often since it was so long ago.  It was very much a clique situation.  I wasn’t a jock, “cool kid”, a part of any labeled group.  I hung out with Timothy Wong, Jonny Amore & Guy McWatt.  When I wasn’t with them, Timothy Wong & I hung out with Faye Wallenberg & Jan Wagner.  Both of those groups were pretty much unlabeled from what I know.  My high school was ENORMOUS!  I think my graduating class of 1998 was 240+?  I know for sure it was over 200 people.  I played in the school band, quit that & joined the choir.  Choir stuck as an extra-curricular activity, then I auditioned for the schools Chamber Choir, I made it!  I never expected to be on the list but I was beyond surprised!  The music program was very well regarded, one of the best in Western Canada, how did I fit into that?

In grade 11 (1997) I figured I’d try out for the baseball team, I made that too!  Another thing that I was shocked with!  I was seriously lacking in self-confidence.  I figured eventually “What’s the worst that can happen?  I might as well give it a shot.”  Achieving those 2 things were both pretty cool to me.

That was the last year I played baseball.  Playing 3B on a city league team & my high school team, I ended up throwing my arm out.  It just ached all of the time.  As much as I would have liked to play the next year, I knew I was done, just when I got really good at striking out VERY consistently.  I had one single in my last 2 seasons!  My batting average must have been .008 over the last 2 years, that’s not a good average at all.  A decent average for a 3B is around .260 or more.  I played baseball from the age of 4 – 17 so 1984-1997.  By 1996 the pitching was too fast for me, good thing I knew how to field decently to play every day.

Those were my 2 hobbies.  That’s why I watch as much baseball as possible & know a bit about music.  I may listen to rock & metal quite a bit but I’m not against orchestral music or listening to one of the many Harry Connick Jr. albums I own.

I can’t tell you where this all comes from.  I come in here, in front of my computron & just write verbal diarrhea.  Whatever pops out.  Stream of consciousness, like one of my favourite books “The Catcher in the Rye”.  I haven’t read that in years.

 

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

 

Since the release of “After Laughter” by “Paramore”, I’ve been on an intense Paramore kick, with all 5 of their albums.  This new one sounds completely different & there’s definitely a “Blondie” influence.  I’ve never been hooked on Blondie though.

Just wanted to show that I’m not the only one who hears a “Blondie” influence.

I went to see “The Proclaimers” last year at the casino.  I remember sitting there thinking to myself “I’m probably the only one here wearing a ‘Lamb of God’ T-Shirt that will be back here in 2 days to see ‘I Mother Earth”

 

With the Manchester bombing & all of the other garbage happening in this world, I’m thankful to wake up the next day, especially with Trump steering, arguably, the most powerful country on earth!  My thoughts go out to those in Manchester who went out to unwind & have a good time.

The world is a VERY UGLY place right now!  It’s only going to get better if we all work together.  Seems like there is hatred around every corner now.  Remember how some little picture said it takes 42 muscles to frown and only 10 or fewer to smile?  I say “Smile & Wave” more at people instead of frowning & shuffling on.  It’s an ugly “dirty world” out there, do what you can to help out someone, it doesn’t have to be a HUGE gesture.  Help an elder cross the street?

I feel sorry for the younger generation that will inherit this mess we’ve collectively screwed up.  At least we get a mood booster from Ellen Degeneres weekly!

 

Rockers react to the attack in Manchester

http://loudwire.com/rockers-react-manchester-concert-bombing/

I totally agree with Randy Blythe, of Lamb of God! “..the human race must do better than this..”

I’m not against any religion or atheist, believe in whatever you choose or don’t believe at all.  What religious book are they reading?  What ‘God’ would tell followers to kill others?  Why do others have to conform to the same religion as the EXTREMISTS do?  Why aren’t the other religious followers of the same religion doing what the extremists are doing?

I’m not trying to take this latest attack lightly.  If you think about it ISIS are like the carnival game whack-a-mole. They pop up, mess with your day, and go back into hiding before you can get them.  Why?  Because members of ISIS know they did something wrong!
 

New ‘Stone Sour’ video!!!!!!!!!!!!  Album out June 30th

 

Apple Music playlist of recent rock releases.  I’ve got both “Highly Suspect” albums & a few on preorder at the moment.  “Stone Sour”, “Royal Blood”, & “Nothing but Thieves”.  I really like the “Muse” single as well.  I bought the single & attached it to my favourite Muse album or else I’d never listen to it as a standalone single.

http://mixing.io/playlist/apple-music-rock-the-a-list-rock

 

Why so that there are more people to witness and be injured in a terrorist attack?  You need to think a step ahead of ISIS!  I don’t see adding more troops/security/police doing much unless they know what to look for.  Until our protectors change the game & get ahead, the same thing will continue to happen.   I’m not trying to say they aren’t doing as much as possible at the moment, but whoever they are, it’s time to change their/our approach.

I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “Silence in the Snow”

I exercised to “Lamb of God” the album “VII: Sturm Und Drang”

 

Crunches, leg lifts, & pushups.  I’ll do that for a few weeks, then maybe up those numbers.  No squats that could wreck my back.  Mostly it’s trying to exercise without ruining my back.

I used to hate it when people would say “I exercised today & I feel so good now”.  Now I’m one of those people, even working out at a minimal amount.

I’ve got some rough numbers where I’d like to end up for my exercises, but they’re way down the road.  As for squats, they can wait until I meet with the surgeon or after the surgery.

Get up early before its 25 Celcius in here.  I did that on Tuesday & today.  That’s the trick!  I’m just going to pretend I don’t have a nasty cough still.  When I exercise it makes me feel as though I’m doing something productive.  I need that.  Even when I ran a printing press!  At the end of a shift I could hold a piece of paper & think to myself “Hey, I helped make this”.

Nobody told me this until a few weeks ago?  My cancer was likely to come back in 2013.  Something I would have liked to know.  Nobody told me squat!  WHY????????  I wouldn’t have done anything differently to avoid it.  You’d think anyone with that kind of info might clue you in.  “His cancer will probably come back but don’t tell him”.  I don’t know, it just seems disrespectful, but 2013 is a long time ago & the cancer didn’t “come back”

If I don’t know what music I should workout to, I just look down at the shirt I’m wearing.  I had to do that today.

 

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

 

Always looking for new bands.  I found a metal group called “Kobra & the Lotus”.  A female fronted group.  I’ve got all of the metal bands I’ll follow, but this song seems to be OK.  Their past 2 albums I’m pretty sure aren’t for me.  I can’t see myself listening to this much but I thought some of you would be interested.

They’re like “Gojira” or “Children of Bodom” for me.  Love most of the music, but can’t get behind the vocals?

 

I’ve become a super hero nut.  I was watching “Gotham” Monday night.  During a commercial brake they showed a trailer of the “Wonder Woman” movie.  I don’t know that I’ll see it on June 2nd, but I’ll definitely see it & likely buy it.

 

OK May 12th, hurry up!  I listen to this song about twice a day on either iTunes or www.youtube.com

 

I’ve never actually heard their music.  How many musicians have used their platform against anything?  EVERYBODY!  Now this video can’t be made because it’s anti-government?  Give me a break

http://loudwire.com/rise-against-video-shoot-shut-down-anti-government/

 

Just think of “The Sex Pistols”  “I am an anti-Christ” anti-Christian, I see no problem with that.  That’s fine or “Rage Against The Machine” pick almost any song in their catalogue.  It is likely anti-government & that’s fine with me also.  It’s kind of pointless that an artist has zero free speech.  I guess if your anti-anything you’d be better off to just “shut up & sing”, that’s just completely messed up to me.  It’s OK for Taylor Swift to bash an ex, but if she was singing about the government in the same way, that would be wrong?  I draw the line at Church burning by mostly black metal bands in Europe.  Not every black metal band does this though.

 

I’ve never been a fan of this song, Soundgarden is great but this song I just can’t get my head around.  Soundgarden shared it though……

 

Last week tonight with John Oliver.  He’s just funny!  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I’m OK with marijuana.  Do what you like, just please don’t hurt yourself or anyone else.

I fell asleep to “In Flames” the 2000 release “Clayman”

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

I couldn’t really exercise this week.  More stretching along with 300 calf raises & 300 leg lifts for the week.  Sets of 20 until I reach 60 for the day.  Yet to hear from the physio therapist.  Each passing day seems like a step backwards, & this started mid-November so I’m WAY behind!

Well I guess this is the day, the inauguration day of a terrorist.  I may live in Canada but I’m not very comfortable with Trump as the President to our direct south!  So buddy up it may be a situation of safety in numbers?  I think there were some protesters there yesterday?

 

I had to do some stuff in the kitchen today.  Just feeling odd emotionally, I needed to hear some “Rage Against the Machine” if you would like to hear it, it’s here but full of LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This version of the song is a Grammy nominated song

 

Now the hits just keep on coming & I feel older with each one.

My dad took me to a taping of “Switchback” when I was a wee little lad!  Here in Regina.

 

I’ve had a TON of time to listen to my music!

Sunday, February 5th 2017 I’ll be doing something other than watching the “Super Bowl”.  Me no likes!  Maybe the half time show?  I don’t know who’s playing at half time.

 

You know whatever Alex Jones says is “fake news”

 

It’s a bitter sweet day for North Americans, more so for America likely.  On the downside the Obama’s are leaving the White House.  On the upside it’s Friday.  Those don’t really balance out……………………………at ALL for me!

 

I’ve heard nothing but bad news for the future of the DC comic book movies, which is sad.  I really liked Batman v. Superman & Suicide Squad.  Apparently Ben Affleck is ready to leave the movie franchise.

I fell asleep to “Alter Bridge” their 2nd album “Blackbird” followed by “Green Day” the latest album “Revolution Radio” then “Live” the album “The Turn” released in 2014 with a new singer.  I didn’t sleep well last night between getting up to pee & just not being able to fall back asleep. I ended up sleeping until 9:00 am.  I prefer to get up at 7:30 am at the latest during the week.

I exercised to “Rage Against the Machine” 3 albums on shuffle.

2 things happened on November 8th 2016 in the USA.  America got their first orange President & late night talk show hosts got a pile of material for the next 4 years.

I keeping my exercise goals right where they are at the moment.  My pushups are the last exercise I do.  I leave them for the end because they are my most difficult exercise & they completely drain me.  Today’s pushups weren’t nearly as difficult as yesterdays.  Everything’s coming, it’s just a slow process.  Writing this blog kept me bluntly honest & that faded a bit.  The promise of breakfast is now included in keeping me honest.  I don’t lie about my exercise, I just needed more motivation.  So far it has been a good week aka I’ve reached my daily goals.  Sure they’re difficult & time consuming.  I’m not about to do nothing & plant myself on the couch.  I’ve got time to fix myself!  I’m not OK with the status quo for me.  I need & want to get better.  Somebody telling me I can’t do it or that I’m doing too much just makes me want to prove them wrong.

I know people with a job & kids don’t have the luxury of ample time to exercise as much as I do, & I don’t expect them to.  I’d say try to eat healthy & squeeze in some exercise if & when possible, even if it’s 5 minutes.  Turn on the TV, watch a ½ hour show while doing an exercise if you have energy after the kids are in bed.  You’ll have to make time for it though.  Exercise was the furthest thing from my mind until I HAD to do it daily, so I understand the lack of motivation & time most people have.

I hate exercising until I finish it.  That’s why I start it first thing in the morning.  Immediately out of the bedroom 60 squats, & hopefully my water bottle is full or else I fill it during my 3 minute rest period before I do 60 more quats.

There’s a group from New York called “Highly Suspect” who are releasing their 2nd album which is on iTunes for preorder as of Friday…………….but only in the USA.  I checked immediately on iTunes!  Not there.  On American iTunes, yes it’s there.  It asked me to make an American iTunes account, that ain’t happening……………………ever.  I got their first album on iTunes (Canadian).  Take my money?  I don’t agree with streaming sites, just like I no longer have a subscription to “Guitar World” magazine.  I download my music on iTunes.  I’m very leery about signing up for an American iTunes account, it’s likely illegal & will likely screw up our Canadian iTunes.

 

I had a completely different issue that they helped me with immediately by calling me 2 seconds after they got my request for a phone call!  The customer support is fantastic, the point of sale service could improve vastly………………could also be that I’m all thumbs when it comes to technology.

Thursday nothing but stretching & TV. Friday more of the same with a progressive metal show in the evening to kick off the long weekend! The show was really good. I haven’t been to the Exchange in quite a while. There’s somewhat of a metal scene there. We don’t all know everyone’s name but you go in there & recognize around 50% of the people at least! Great show & fun times! Sound was really good also! I can’t imagine doing sound for an opening death metal band, but it sounded very good! 3 bands for $10, good deal! I’m getting old though. The concert ended around midnight, I was tired, WAY past my bedtime!!! It was “Third Ion’s” album release show, really good progressive metal group!!!!!!

Saturday we went to my parents place for supper & to say goodbye to my cousin & uncle back to Winnipeg as of Sunday morning. We stayed there until around 11:00 pm. Staying out past 10:30 pm makes me tired.

Because of staying out so late, I planted myself on the couch to watch The Toronto Blue Jays fall back into 2nd place in their division. The funniest thing this weekend has been that the Blue Jay scored 6 runs in their game Friday night, & the Roughriders scored 3 points Friday night. The baseball team scored more than the football team! Hahahahahaha!

I think Kim is “Superwoman”, she’s more than amazing. Monday thus far has been Murphy’s Law since I went to shower. Kim’s probably sating to herself “That idiot” & she would be right in doing so. Knock on wood, I have yet to fall today!

Stranger Things” on Netflix is REALLY good. It’s a show based in 1983, a group of kids are playing a game & their friend disappears in the first episode & it goes on from there. 8 50 minute episodes & I really hope there’s a 2nd season! Yes I binge watched the last 4 episodes today, Thursday.

Too bad this isn’t the theme song….

I highly recommend “The Ranch” on Netflix starring Ashton Kutcher & Danny Masterson. This show is HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!! LANGUAGE!!!!!

Brad Wilk, Rage Against the Machine drummer, wishes Bill Ward, Black Sabbath drummer, had played on the recent album “13”

Donald J. Trump is “Christian” not Christian watch the movie Red State by Kevin Smith. A God does not tell the followers to kill. A God accepts people for who they are! Some where along the way people have not fully understood their religion’s Bible?

There’s a big difference between “Christian” & Christian or “Muslim” & Muslim! Extremist & Religious are two very different things!!!

Fans watch the band preform, idiots try to be a part of the show. Fans have their space, musicians have the stage!!!! Yep, LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
