I fell asleep to “Finger Eleven” the album “Greyest of Blue Skies”

I exercised to “Big Wreck” the album “In Loving Memory Of…”

I don’t believe in making a New Year resolution.  I have goals I want to achieve or surpass, exercise wise.  I’ve been back to my regular routine with squats added into the mix.  I wanted to add cardio, so I think I know what I’ll do about that now.  Exercise bike once a week in the evening or Saturdays & walking with my walker & Kim’s help 3 nights a week as soon as she gets home or just after supper.  My crunches & back flexes have also joined the mix.

4 day week remember.  Each day is 45 Triceps pushups, 40 squats (recommended by my younger cousin Megan Gagnon), 40 back flexes, 100 crunches, 100 leg lifts, & 120 pushups.  For the week that’s  180 Triceps pushups, 160 squats, 160 back flexes, 400 crunches, 400 leg lifts, & 480 pushups.  Next week will be a full 5 days.

All of this exercise is great but I hope to add some cardio on Saturdays.  Walking with my walker mostly & some exercise bike thrown in on occasion.  I’ve only heard whispers of other people enjoying cardio, I’m SO NOT one of them.  Kim enjoys it though.  When she’s out jogging or boxing at the gym, I get the remote & there shall be no TLC on the TV!

After all of that exercise during the week, I get really tired.  In order to walk with my walker & Kim’s assistance, I’d prefer to do so properly, when I’m not tired, like right before supper or ride the exercise bike on Saturdays.

 

 

Really?  “Muse” are back in the studio.  They did say they wanted to release a new album this year.

 

Haha!  Funny tweets about Alexa!

Devin Townsend Project

I had a lot of iTunes cash for Christmas.  James had the latest CD “Transcendence” which I borrowed & put on my iTunes.  Then I bought 2 other albums from iTunes “Addicted” & “Epicloud” all FANTASTIC albums added to other albums I own of his.  I was planning on buying “Transcendence” anyways.  I borrowed the CD from James & couldn’t stop listening to it, so I bought the other 2 albums from iTunes.  I wasn’t a huge fan of his until I heard “Transcendence” the double album version, & the latest release from them, right now, that’s my jam.

I couldn’t get into his former group “Strapping Young Lad” though.  They’re a little too heavy for me.

“Devin Townsend Project” I REALLY enjoy though.  Here are a few tracks from “Transcendence” that I can’t get enough of!

 

He’s Canadian & he did produced the “Lamb of God” album “As the Palaces Burn”

He finished recording it & then said “I can’t mix this????????????????”

Two things that would blow my mind this year is a new Lamb of God album & if Trivium would come to Saskatoon this year!

 

The more you share this, the more readers I get.  No, I’m not profiting from this in any way.  I can’t tell who’s reading this but thank you!

I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the album “Wasting Light”

I exercised to Kim watching TV.

This is late.  I just didn’t want to get out of bed.  I woke up shortly after 8:00 am & finally got my butt moving at 10:00 am had a quick bite to eat & then exercised.  I thought things would get easier as I did them more?  I sweated profusely today though, doing the same exercises as yesterday.

I’m pretty sure these will be posted later on in the morning since I’ve added more exercises.

I’m not the hero or victim in this cancer nonsense.  My family, Kim’s family, & our friends are the heroes.  I would never be able to get this far on my own.  If Kim wasn’t working, we’d really be hooped.  She works, I exercise.  There’s no income for exercising as much as possible.  Our immediate families are very important to both of us.  James, Sherry, Mitch, Rachel, & my parents are all in Regina.  If we need help of any kind that they can help with, none of them think twice about helping us out.  Our friends in Regina are the same.  If we need help, they’re ready & on call.  No offense to anyone, Mitch & Kim are my phone a friend peeps.

When I was acting like a complete idiot, Mitch put me in my place.  Kim wasn’t very happy at that time either.  I didn’t see it because I wasn’t thinking about anyone else or how my behavior was affecting others.

If things had turned out differently & I had died, many other people would have died on the inside.  I didn’t die though & thank goodness I didn’t!  Not everyone gets a second chance at life other than cats that get 9 lives.  No I’m trying to steer the boat, with many others, in the right direction.  I’m sure we’ll run into some nasty waves along the way but with help awaiting the call, we’ll be OK.

 

Kim has this entire week off.  We watched 2 more movies on Monday.  Spider – Man Homecoming & Thor: The Dark World.  I really didn’t like the first Thor movie but this second one was REALLY good.  I saw Spider – Man Homecoming in the theater & I knew it was a movie I’d watch again.  Right now I’m holding out to see Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi & we may go this weekend to Pitch Perfect 3?

 

I’m sure A Perfect Circle will be released this year.  It could be a long wait before we hear a new Tool album.  I’ll believe it when I have it.  Danny Carey said in 2016 that there would be a new Tool album in 2017.  Their last release was in 2006 titled “10,000 Days”.  If that’s when the release is we have roughly 16.397 years to wait, if I did the math properly?  A Perfect Circle has 2 singles out already, still no release date though.

 

Spotify is being sued for $1.6 Billion.

U2 – Songs of Experience.

I was a HUGE U2 fan in High School.  I have 11 albums on CD right from the 1st album 1980’s “Boy” to 2005’s “How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb”.  After that album I just assumed they had retired, until “Songs of Innocence” appeared in my iTunes.  That album was light years away from what I would consider a U2 album.  I got into them on “The Joshua Tree” released in 1987.  I (my mom) didn’t purchase it for me until 1989 or 1990(?) when I was with her at Costco & saw it there.  My mother isn’t a U2 fan, but she bought that CD for me.  I played that CD over & over & over etc. in my bedroom on my boom box at a LOUD volume.  I think my mother deeply regretted that Costco purchase.

After that album I casually bought the previous albums & kept a steady pace with future U2 releases.

The new album “Songs of Experience” I seem to enjoy it more with each listen.  I find it to be a good mix of old & new U2.  Here’s someone else’ take on it. I would never suggest a U2 album to anyone that has never been a fan of them.  If you’ve enjoyed previous albums, DEFINITELY check this album out!  Thanks to Jonny Amore & Timothy Wong for drawing my attention to this album!

EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL

I fell asleep to “Eagles of Death Metal” the album “Death by Sexy”

I exercised to ”Corrosion of Conformity” 6 albums on shuffle.

Exercise total for the week; 5000 crunches, 180 squats, 120 leg lifts, 60 pushups, 20 minutes of planking.

Now I just want to curl up in the fetal position on the couch & cry. My muscles are that sore.

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

https://www.facebook.com/A-Million-Miles-Away-Blog-1597618270456002/?ref=hl

www.amillionmilesawayblog.com for email

All of this exercise & you’d think I’d look ripped! Not so. I still have more T-Shirts that don’t fit than those that do fit. I’m much lighter than I was going into the hospital than I am now. I was 265 pounds, right now I’m somewhere close to 240 as of a few weeks ago. My frame is quite big, I’ll never be under 200. I think somewhere between 210-220 is where I should be. At the moment my dominant/right calf looks like a chicken wing after you’ve striped the meat off of it. My left calf looks decent. Either way my legs are SEXY……………….a little furry but still SEXY!

I think I’ve figured out what the most beneficial exercises are for me at the moment. Squats, exercise bike, walking, stairs, leg lifts on my hands & knees, crunches. I need some more upper body strength but that’s not high on my priority list at the moment. I’m in not bad shape, for a guy in a wheelchair, but all of my weight/fat went right to my belly.

I graduated high school at 185 pounds. When I got to University I read my text books every night but I’d need a study break. I’d leave the book open on my desk in my room & grab 20 pound weights, do 20 curls on each arm, some sit ups & push ups. I take a study break & do that about twice a day/evening. I remember I’d ride the exercise bike in the basement while watching a movie & ride it for however long the movie was.

Cheap Trick interview with Consequence of Sound on their induction to the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame

REALLY! This needs to change like before Napster happened. $0.99 FOR A 15 SONG ALBUM ON SPOTIFY??????? Tell your employer you’ll work for 3-4 months for $0.99. Musicians are doing it, might as well join in???????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Or rent the album 20 times????????

Star Wars: Episode VII was fantastic in the theater & also at home with surround sound. Now I should watch “Top Gun” with our surround sound!!!!

I wonder if the sequel will be any good?

3 versions of the same song & it’s just an extremely catchy song to me in any form!!

Oh yeah, that little TV show ended last night maybe you’ve heard of it? American Idol. I’ve watched it occasionally over the years. Didn’t watch the first season at all. I just really liked some of the stuff Kelly Clarkson released & I saw Phillip Phillips a few years ago. The guy who always gets compared to Dave Matthews. Other than that, I just found it to be a talent contest on a LARGE stage. 3 or 4 judges narrow it down to the top 10 they like, then they tell you ‘OK, these 10 we deem worthy of winning this contest. Great marketing tool, but the subject is/was as subjective as it gets. I would have an idea as to who would win & it was never who I had chosen in my mind. They’re all good at what they do, I don’t necessarily like it all. How many of the musicians I listen to would do well on the show, other than the 2 winners I do listen to? Maybe 2 or 3 at best?

This is how fast I’ll abandon my computer today. I have no cell phone or tablet/iPad, catch you on the weekend update! Monday, I haven’t decided yet if I’ll be online at all?

However you’re getting this, please pass it along?

REALLY HELP ME OUT & SPREAD THE WORD PLEASE!!!

WEEKEND UPDATE

If you’re getting this on facebook, please like & share it?

www.amillionmilesawayblog.com

Give the site a moment to load all of the links. It takes a bit for my computer & it crashes on Kim’s cell.

Why is iTunes illegal in the U.K.? They made it illegal because of the burning software? We’ve always been able to trade vinyl, 8 tracks, cassettes, & CDs. We we’re also allowed to make mix tapes & mix CDs? Now that’s illegal? So Apple Music, “free” music that you basically rent, can flourish? Once you pay $5.99 for digital music, that you own, now you can’t share it or burn a copy legally in the U.K.? That’s just weird? I really don’t care how you get your music. If it’s through a streaming site, I don’t get it? You pay $9.99 a month for “free” music, if you want to hear a song you downloaded today on Apple Music, in 20 years you may have to continue paying $9.99 a month to hear it in 2035. All of that time you’ve paid $2397.60 to hear the same song from 20 years ago?

Should a contractor do the same? “I built that house 20 years ago. They should pay me monthly until it falls to the ground”. Would you buy the house under that law? I personally wouldn’t. I tend to think Apple should distribute the money made through iTunes & the purchase of iPods needs to be re-evaluated & distributed fairly. They got the idea right, just the disbursement of money is screwed up. We’ve all been able to own our music, but now that’s illegal in the UK?

Jimmy Fallon making cocktails. “What do you do with Apricot Brandy?”  If you’re Kayll Schaefer you catch up to Corey & I in 2002? Through a straw, whatever you’re friend left in the fridge! I don’t know how full the fridge was, but there was free Apricot Brandy in there! Doesn’t everybody get hammered on a Thursday when Friday is optional? Corey & I did.

10 best thrash bands of all time. Another metal sub-genres I don’t acknowledge. It’s metal! You either like it or not. End of story!

http://loudwire.com/best-thrash-metal-bands/?fb822

Is Trivium “thrash” or not?……………wait……………….I don’t care.

So I wake up this morning screaming. I was dreaming. In my dream there was a rat coming at me & Brewster was with me. I was walking & Brewster was on his leash with me. I tried to kick the rat in my dream. I woke up & had kicked my wheelchair & woke up at 7:30 screaming in pain. Brewster was on me instantly to see if I was OK. He’s such a good dog. I fell back to sleep for a few minutes, then woke up for good at 8:00. I don’t have kids, but I don’t really sleep in. On the weekends I’m usually awake by 9:30 during the week I get up either when Kim leaves for work or I wake when she’s showering. Brewster is usually the last 1 in bed!

The Toronto Blue Jays scored half the points the Saskatchewan Roughriders did Saturday night. Blue Jays won their game 15-3 Riders lost 34-31. After 8 games the Roughriders have yet to win 0W-8L. Blue Jays will, at the very least, play a wild card game to get into the playoffs. Riders playoff hope? No, that’s a pipe dream.

Kim did it, we watched “Red Dragon”, the prequel to “Silence of the Lambs”. The movies aren’t as freaky as they were 12 or 13 years ago when I was alone house sitting for my grandparents. Big empty house after watching those movies, then going to bed? I ran up the stairs I was so scarred I’d see Anthony Hopkins behind me, trying to eat me!

Foo Fighters retaliate against Kansas City Baptist Church picketers with Rick Astley’s ’80s hit “Never Gonna Give You Up”!

http://loudwire.com/foo-fighters-rick-roll-westboro-baptist-church-kansas-city/ because of this tour promo video in 2011. Maybe the picketers should protest outside any building with a public shower, YMCA/YWCA, etc.? Oh, snap the “C” stands for Christians!

Pink Floyd announces they’re done.

Bill Cosby’s going down. I don’t want to believe it, but it’s true. I wish the women he assaulted had come out sooner to prevent this from happening to others. I also understand why they didn’t.

I don’t use marijuana, but I’m all for legalizing it. Anyone that wants to use it is & really isn’t affecting those who don’t want to use it. Seems like more of a waste of time for the police to me, I’m good either way. Kelly Clarkson spoke about it in this article, that’s what brought it on.

I would recommend checking this Zac Brown Band album out very little flat out any type of music. I can’t really compare any song on this album to a song on a different album?

Here’s a few clips I’ve found of him doing cover songs I wouldn’t see coming from him. Would you ever expect to hear Queen or Rage Against The Machine at a country music band concert. WARNING!!!

Starts out nice & simple then, not so much

This was always fun to play at 2:00am

As morbid as this is, it’s true. The only certainty in life is that it will end, so don’t waste your time worrying about your death or anyone else’. Enjoy the present. Don’t worry about the past, you can’t change it, & you don’t know what the future will bring. Just enjoy your time here in the moment. I was scared about my death long before I had cancer, I realize now that there are some things you can’t prevent, so why worry about the next second of your life?

Songs I like. “Great Big Sea” released in 1996 &1997 their first two CDs which I bought when they were released. I saw them live twice, once on each tour. I don’t think I’ve listened to them since I graduated in June of ’98

Big Wreck live

No, I’m not touching any streaming site EVER go ahead though pay for a radio station for the rest of your life? I’ll be here spending our money on iTunes & I’ll sleep well knowing it will be there. Maybe that’s stupid of me, spending money for a product I want to own, then I’m an idiot, oh well. Nobody other than the label is really making any money on iTunes or any streaming site.

New Lamb of God website?
http://www.lambofgodvii.com/

James & I saw Lamb of God on the tour for this album in 2006? At the West Edmonton mall on a whirl wind 2 day trip. I saw the weirdest thing ever. A mother, father & 2 kids all there headbanging along to every Lamb of God song. I don’t know that I’ll ever see that again?

I agree with him 100%. But nothing will change with anyone being mad about the current situation for musicians. You can’t have it all for the consumer or all for the artists, there has to be a balance to it so everyone gets something out of it. Thank you Napster, iTunes, Spotify, Tidal, Pandora, Google Play, etc.

The Simpson are renewed for 2 more seasons, why? I’m done with the show as of a long time ago. I’m 35 years old. I did an air band to the first season soundtrack in grade 6, I think they’ve expired “Best before 2000”

Pearl Jam covers Big Wreck? Did somebody else write this song? I just checked my “Albatross-Big Wreck” CD liner & saw no writing credits for any songs!

Duff McKagan (G n’ R/Velvet Revolver) new book

Velvet Revolver has released 2 albums. I can honestly say that only this song is the one I don’t mind. It does get old rather fast. They’re good at what they do, it’s just not for me.

Noel Gallagher sounds off on a few things.

I’d have to agree, firing John Gibbons would be a band aid fix. Everybody on the field is under preforming other than rookie 2nd baseman Devon Travis & OF Kevin Pillar. 2/9 players can’t carry a team through 162 games unless the name on the jersey is Bautista or Encarnacion, even that’s a stretch!!
