WEEKLY EXERCISE TOTAL/ COUNTING CROWS

The www.youtube.com  links are there for a point of reference if you don’t know what I’m talking about.

No such thing as a stupid question!  Ask me & I’ll try to break it down for you!

5 day exercise total; 400 pushups, 300 tricep pushups, 300 back flexes, 360 squats, 600 leg lifts, 300 crunches.

I fell asleep to “Dead Sara” both albums followed by the EP “Temporary Things Taking up Space”

I exercised to “Sandbox” the album “Bionic”

Yes, the singer is Bubbles from the Canadian TV show “Trailer Park Boys” the guy with the glasses

 

Monday was tough after 9 days off.  Oddly, it got much easier as the week progressed?  That was a pleasant surprise.  I could have just sat here & complained about a boring life, done nothing when I was released from my cancer rehabilitation.  Instead I chose to try & get myself as close to what I was before cancer.

Remember that whatever is going on in your life you almost always have a choice.  The path of least resistance was not for me.  “Yeah, let’s make it as difficult as possible” – idiot/me

After almost 5 ½ years, I’m finally seeing some muscle, not much but some.  After watching all of that www.youtube.com stuff on exercising, I can tell you it’s a flat out LIE!  If it was true, I’d have been quite muscular 4 or 5 years ago!  Watch a www.youtube.com video & try to replicate it, doesn’t work in my case!

 

Today is the day!!!!  “Bohemian Rhapsody” is in theaters today!!!!!  I don’t like joining a crowd.  I’ll see it next week or sometime shortly after that!

Mike Myers on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert regarding many topics including his role in “Bohemian Rhapsody”

 

Everybody knew ‘grunge’ had its moment but Marilyn Manson in its place now?  I’ve heard a few songs of his, they’re not what you might think they might sound like.  They were album tracks & they were mostly orchestral music.

Dream Theater is releasing their 14th album in February!  Great, the 34 song double album “The Astonishing” was far from what I/fans expected & knew they could do better!

I like “Slipknot”, I’ve got their albums.  I’ve never been anxious for any album of theirs to be released until now!

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ah yes, “I’m going to sue you because my husband took too many of the pills you prescribed him”.  I miss Chris Cornell & Soundgarden too, but the doctor didn’t shove the pills down his throat, or was he on tour with Soundgarden?

COUNTING CROWS

I own 2 of their albums that I bought on CD in the 1990s.  I actually bought 5 studio albums & a double album of them live.  I’m good with only the first 2 studio albums though.  I really don’t know about this band so here’s what http://www.google.com tells me.  They formed in Berkley, California in 1991.  Their first big album was released in 1993 & their 2nd album was released in 1996.  When I got their 2nd album that was all I listened to for 2-3 weeks.  Their most recent studio album was released in 2014.

 

1993     AUGUST & EVERYTHING AFTER

 

1996     RECOVERING THE SATELLITES

IT’S MONDAY. BOOO!

Today’s workout was brought to you by the letter “T”, as in Trivium on shuffle. The title track from The Crusade is all I have on my iTunes from that album the actual CD is in my CD shelf. I really wasn’t big on that album. It gets a pass from me.

Radiohead’s 4th album ‘Kid A’ turns 15 today, which means 15 years ago tomorrow I stopped listening to any future Radiohead release, other than ‘In Rainbows’ which I wouldn’t recommend to anyone, you’ll hate it or think it’s OK. If you’re hard core Radiohead fan you’ll love it.
