I fell asleep to “Royal Blood” the album “How Did We Get So Dark?”

Followed by “Nothing but Thieves” their debut self-titled album

Why is this world so full of hatred?  Does anybody see religion against religion, colour against colour, gender against gender, or sexuality against sexuality?  Somebody PLEASE show me where that is written & who wrote or said it?  If any of this is true, why aren’t all Muslims terrorist?  Or all white people a part of the KKK?

It’s not Religion or else I’d be in a holy war against all non-Christian Religions.  I don’t care about someone else’ sexuality, race, or anyone’s difference in lifestyle!  If you’re a good person, let’s hang out!  If you’re not a good person, GO AWAY!  If only it was that easy!

I don’t understand the Q in #LGBTQ.  I don’t have to understand it, I have to acknowledge it, and I do.  I know it stands for ‘queer’ but none of those initials should not define you as a good or bad person.

My other question is the song “Imagine” by John Lennon appropriate at Christmas time?

Great song about peace!!!!!  If there’s “…no religion….” There’s no Christmas!  Kim & I were watching “A Pentatonix Christmas” & that was the final song.  Great song, but I don’t understand why it’s in a Christmas special?

 

I think everyone has both a good & bad personality.  I also think we can all do a little better & focus more on the good in us.  Not just at the holiday season, but every day!  We can all do better every day!

 

You know it will be entertaining.  You know………………..because he’s crazy.

Rolling Stone’s top 50 albums of the year.  Wow, my list will be 10, I couldn’t afford 50!  I may have bought 15 or 20 & some of them were just OK.  2 of these 50 albums I bought & will make my list.  Most of the others I’ve either never heard of or are just not for me.

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/lists/50-best-albums-of-2017-w511763

 

We can’t afford the gas to see Queens of the Stone Age in Calgary, Edmonton, or Winnipeg.  I would REALLY like to see them in Calgary on Thursday, May 17th.  Forget about tickets, which regular seating or general admission is at most $70 plus fees & taxes!  I would expect wheelchair seating to be $49-$70 as it shows on www.ticketmaster.ca.   Gas alone will kill our money tree.

This looks like a really good show to me.  We also had our passports expire while I was sick.  This show is out of the question for me.  It’s also a bit to hit & miss for me anyways.  Tool, A Perfect Circle, Stone Temple Pilots, & Stitched Up Heart.  Many more too………

http://loudwire.com/tool-avenged-sevenfold-alice-in-chains-headline-2018-rock-on-the-range/

Sometimes I don’t like the fact that I live in the middle of nowhere.  Some bands must think “We’ll play everywhere in Canada except the northern Territories, Maritimes, & Saskatchewan”.  Weird, yet In Flames from Sweden has been to Saskatoon about 2 or 3 years ago!  Some bands hit Montreal, Toronto, & Vancouver & call that a Canadian tour.  Those places are minimum a 2 day drive for us!

I have to see Queens of the Stone Age at least once before I die.  This is their 7th studio album, & it’s AWESOME, makes me want to bust a move, in my wheelchair!

Not much going on here.  My chiropractor told me to do as little as possible this week.  Couch & TV.  So really nothing.  That’s great for a few days, it gets very boring after a few days.  It’s been a lot of resting since mid-November with some stretching involved, BORING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

He’ll get over it I’m sure.  I miss singing & playing guitar, I got over it.  My voice is crap but I can work/practice my guitar.

I fell asleep to “Prince” the album “Purple Rain”.  I woke up to pee & put on “Tool” the album “Lateralus”

I exercised to “Ascot Royals” the 2017 release “New Skin” only 7 songs, then I put on “Big Wreck” the new album “Grace Street”

I’ve got some “Into Eternity” the album “Dead or Dreaming” in the house today

 

Sunday February 3rd, 2008 was the day I was shoveling snow in our backyard.  I sat down on our steps while I experienced the most painful headache of my life.  It didn’t last long & it was at the base of my skull in the back.  Kim saw me through the kitchen window & told me to come inside.  My headache probably lasted 3 minutes & then I was fine.  I slept fine & went to work on Monday, after a week off with a bad stomach flu.

I was fine on Monday the entire day.  I didn’t even think anything of my painful/short headache.

Tuesday, February 5th 2008, again all was fine.  Kim & I were carpooling to work.  We had bought a used Pontiac Grand Am, which looked new.  We bought it roughly a year prior.  It was more used as a replacement for my Ford Tempo, which had seen better days!  I dropped of Kim & went to work.  I think it was still in the morning.  I was about to put on the printing plates for a job.  Two of my co-workers came over & told me I looked very pale.  I felt fine & carried on as usual.  Then it all happened.

I sat down on the cat-walk of my press, then I laid down on it, none of this is normal.  I called for my co-worker and said “Call 911”.  I was almost out.  The paramedics came ASAP.  Kim had been called at the same time.  She went to leave & realized I had the car.  Her boss drove her over.  I was put on a stretcher & was taken into the ambulance.  The last thing I remember was Kim getting into the ambulance & me saying “It’ll be alright sweetie”.  Apparently I was alert & answering many questions.  I don’t remember a thing though.  I was in a coma for 4 or 5 weeks with a 5-15% chance of coming out of a coma.  I slept for a year only waking up for painkillers.  On December 31st 2008 I was declared cancer free.  I really did nothing, my body took over while I pretty much slept for a year & I’m sure there was a good chunk of good luck involved.

I was discharged from my therapies at the Wascana Rehabilitation Center on Thursday July 26th 2012!  I’m told the doctors expected the cancer too comeback at the 5 year mark, that never happened luckily!

Some people say I should celebrate the days in February.  I think those are days to forget.  I’d rather celebrate July 26th & every New Year.  I don’t know if that’s right, the days in February don’t seem as though they need to be remembered?

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?

It’s odd that my chiropractor noticed I was wearing pants instead of my year round shorts attire.  Mark your calendars’ it was yesterday.  January 11th.  I wore pants for the first time this year, 2017.  I think I wore pants 4 times last year?

“But it’s so cold out, how do you do that, are you nutz?”  Being a little bit off helps but think of how long I’m actually outside.  We have underground parking, so I’m not outside.  We also have rock star…………….mmmm…………handicap parking very close to the building we’re going to.  I’m outside for 2 or 3 minutes in total to & from where ever we we’re.

Our wedding was in May 2005.  If I could change one thing about our wedding, it would be the normal formal attire.  “Are you comfortable?  Underwear & a T-Shirt?  Come on in!”  As long as the bits & pieces are covered, who cares?

Anyways, I saw my chiropractor yesterday & this pinched nerve has been preventing me from doing anything for roughly 2 months now.  I’ll be getting a referral to a physio therapist on Monday.  If it continues to bother me, after I don’t know how long I’ll be given a cortisone shot, which would be my 8th since 2008.  Not fun but they work!  “Let me shove this 8” needle in you.”  Kim couldn’t even watch & she’s not worried around needles.  The needle didn’t really hurt, the doctor put so much pressure on the needle into my spine.  I’ve had back issues since high school.

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

5:45 am on a Saturday I’m awake & I’ve had my breakfast.  I don’t even have a child!  My pinched nerve is driving me crazy.  I figured I’d let Kim & Brewster sleep instead of me flopping around trying to get comfortable & keeping them awake, I’ll probably hit the couch soon.  We stayed in Friday night & rented “Snowden” on iTunes.  Was it ever good!  All based on Edward Sowden who is turning 38 this year.  AWESOME movie!!!!!!!!!

Saturday was extremely uneventful couch & loveseat for us, nap day.  I did go walking with my walker until it hurt, I’m guessing 80-120 feet in total, just to get some movement around the pinched nerve.  Kim was impressed that she didn’t have to guide my walker, that’s a good thing!  It was a flat surface though, not like the small ups & downs in the parkade.

More walking today.  I was up to 800 meters before, with this pinched nerve it really starts to hurt quickly, so probably 80-120 feet again.  A day of taking down Christmas stuff, a little bit of walking, then the couch……………again!  Without a pinched nerve, nothing hurts & I can do 200-400 meters at a time, I just get tired & the quality of walking suffers.  I’ll sit for a couple of minutes, have some water & carry on for as long as I can.  At the moment, it’s all about moving the muscle & when it hurts I stop.

Is everybody out to bash the DC movies?  I guess it’s subjective, but I find them every bit as good as the Marvel movies, “Batman vs. Superman” is/was fantastic.  Not a kid’s comic book movie, it was very dark.  Suicide Squad wasn’t up to par. Good movie, subpar ending though.  If you don’t like what you’ve seen already, don’t watch it.  You aren’t being forced to watch the movies, but when they hit theaters they’re among the top grossing movies on opening weekend?

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?
