I fell asleep to “Linkin Park” their first album “Hybrid Theory”

I exercised to “The Barstool Prophets” from the album “Crank”

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

As much as I’d like to start of full on, I can’t.  I’m not supposed to do the full amount I was doing before anyways, so the doctors tell.  So I’ll level things out at a slightly smaller number.  It will be very slow going until I get a cortisone shot anyways.  I like proving the doctors wrong, but better safe than sorry since I’ve run out of tax claims for the year for chiropractor appointments!  I can’t wait to have a doctor lean on a 6” needle with all they’ve got into my spine, YAY!


RUN DMC plays fact or fiction

If I started listening to rap it would Beastie Boys more often & RUN DMC


I wish “Stone Sour” would just stop posting a photo of whichever member recording in the studio.  We know they’re done and the album release is in June.  Stone Sour fans know and we’re just waiting now.


Bob Dylan plans North American tour after covers album.


Finger Eleven had their first rehearsal for their 3 big 20th anniversary shows being filmed, I’m assuming for release next years for the 20 year celebration!


Songs I just wanted to play, & a few more when I filled in for a friend.

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.

Quiet weekend here, Kim’s back from her trip to B.C. this weekend.  I really missed her.  Brewster & I got to hang out.  Kim made food to keep in the fridge for me a lasagna & some fish.  I ended up hanging out at my parents place for 2 of the 4 days.  I ended up not eating here much, more so at my parents place.  I missed Kim so much!  Brewster was thrilled to see her too.

I’d be purchasing vinyl as well, if I had room for a collection?  According to my father, sales for CD players are declining steadily & record player sales are climbing upwards!  He works in the business designing home theaters & much more.


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.

I don’t listen to country music much, other than The Dixie Chicks & a few other songs.  My knowledge of rap/hip-hop is almost nothing.  If I was going to listen to rap I’d listen to “Run-DMC”

Late start to my day. Kim left for work at 7:00 am, I didn’t roll , my lazy butt out of bed until 8:30 am. I much prefer getting up before 8:00 am so I can get things done. For me this is a day of rushing around the place to do what’s needed after my exercises.

I can’t remember what European country it was, iTunes was ruled by a judge that iTunes is illegal since 2013 or 2014. Because you can burn a CD on it. Apple now sells lap-top computers without a CD, DVD or Blu-ray drive. That sounds more illegal than banning the use of iTunes all together. I’m sure the people at Apple could just not include the burning software?

Say you’re sitting around the house & an older song pops into your head maybe you heard it in passing or on a commercial and you say to yourself “Hey, I’ve got that on CD! I should put it on my iPod!” wait, you can’t because you have a new Apple lap top with no CD drive in it. So now you’re going to add the album to your streaming service or buy it on iTunes. More money for Apple (The Rich) & less for you (The not nearly as rich), this sounds illegal to me. Apple is now checking the info on the music you put on your personal iTunes & we’re not allowed to borrow or burn mix CDs because it is now illegal? What was the movie I saw just a few years ago with Ashton Kutcher who made a mix CD for Natalie Portman’s character on her period?

Comedy album anyone?

Pentatonix shared it, again…………….

Masterpiece review courtesy of The Consequence of Sound. This is when Radiohead took a big dive for me. This is their third album after the very FANTASTIC “The Bends” followed by the oh so AWESOME/MIND BLOWING “OK Computer”

For the record I’m not a fan of Kiss, Motley Crue, or Sixx AM. Gene Simmons is & will be known as the most outspoken musician in history, Kanye West will be a close 2nd . I don’t listen to any of them. They’re the ones who have the celebrity platform to say what they want, when they want. You can choose to listen or avoid it.

Typical 0 Canadian dates not even the 3 or 4 that most do. Toronto, Montreal, maybe Calgary, & Vancouver. Rarely in Saskatchewan or Manitoba either. Ah, well?

Myles Kennedy (Slash/Alter Bridge), Run DMC, & John Moyer (Disturbed bassist) team up for song regarding gun violence. More people need to speak up on this issue in the USA!

This hasn’t aired here yet Ellen Degeneres with Drake. Video inside the link.

This gets me excited! 2016 reunion of “Rage Against The Machine” could possibly happen?


Alice in Chains & Lenny Kravitz to open on the Guns n’ Roses tour

If you ask me? I’d go to see the opener, and leave when the opener was done. It’s subjective & the only reason there’s any info on Guns n’ Roses is because I know that many people are BIG fans of them.

OK that’s fine. It doesn’t take a decade to release an album the same way Axl & friends did with “Chinese Democracy”. Yes Donald Trump has made a joke of the political system in the USA.

Article from Guitar World with Mark Tremonti. The new Alter Bridge album will contain 14 new tracks!
