I fell asleep to “In Flames” the album “Siren Charms”

I exercised to “Odds” the album “Bedbugs”

Below is my favourite song from this album

100 leg lifts, 100 crunches, 40 pushups, & 20 back flexes/day.  400 leg lifts, 400 crunches, 160 pushups, & 80 back flexes over the course of 4 days

I figured Kim’s got Friday booked off, then I’ll take a day off too.  I started back doing my exercises & found out my cold wasn’t gone yet.  I did the maximum repetitions for 4/6 exercises.  I guess that’s what I’ll do this week?  I’m pretty much making my own rules as I go, I guess?  Monday-Thursday this week.  It’s summer time & there are many people coming & going this year.  Honestly we have no plans set in stone for the rest of the summer or fall, other than Saskatchewan Roughrider home games that I go to with my parents.

Timothy Wong was here over the weekend, nice to see him & his daughter briefly at the football game, his son Nicholas was guarding the seats.

We’d like to spend some time at my family cabin, don’t know when that’ll be though?  Other than that, I’m not sure what we’ll be up to this summer?

 

THAT’S ALL I HAVE FOR AN UPDATE & CANCER NEWS.  TONS OF POPCULTURE STUFF BELOW IF YOU LIKE.  REMEMBER JUST IF YOU’RE INTERESTED.

 

Sorry, some Toronto Blue Jay talk for a bit.  All of the MLB stops as of this Monday for the All-Star break.  The trade deadline is 12:00 noon eastern time.  The Blue Jays are in last place in their division of 5 teams at 41W-47L.  Each team plays 162 games a year, so there is lots of baseball to go!  This is when the trade rumours start.  What do I want the Jays to do?  Trade a lot of the team, or stay the course, either way.  Please stop lying to fans who don’t know any better aka all of the fans that jumped on the bandwagon in 2015.

Doesn’t matter to me if you’re a bandwagon jumper or not.  Compare the Blue Jays today to the Blue Jays of 2015.  Pretty much the same team other than Left Field & First Base/DH.  So the 2015 team didn’t win a World Series & now you basically have the same players, just 2 years older.  You’ve got a messy platoon in LF & 1B/DH is putting up better numbers than Encarnacion did in 2015.  1B Justin Smoak has 23 Home Runs, 56 Runs Batted In, & a batting average of .294.  IMPRESSIVE to say the least.  At the designated hitters spot is Kendrys Morales who’s stats are 16HR, 48RBI, & an average of .252.  The player the Jays lost in the off season has very similar numbers compared to those of Kendrys Morales.

In my eyes the 2 new front office guys who came in during the off season of 2015-2016 should stop giving fans a false sense of the team being OK.  When they first came to Toronto, they said they wanted/needed to get younger & more left handed players.  OK, sooooooooooooooo………………………where did they pencil that into their schedule?  They currently have the oldest average age of players on their roster!

 

The Philosopher Kings were supposed to tour across Canada last year, they cancelled the tour saying they were going to record instead.  What was released last week?  A 4 song EP of songs from the first 3 albums.  REALLY???  I’d rather see them live than have a 4 song EP of stuff I own.

My wardrobe is mostly made up of T-Shirts I’ve bought at concerts or bands that I listen to but don’t have the cash to fly to Europe & see live.  You can take this article either way.  Personally, I don’t really care, on the flip side of that, I will ask you what your favourite album or song is from the band that is represented on your shirt.

REALLY?  Get over it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  That album came out in 1997.  He’s holding on to a grudge from 20 years ago if this is real.  It becomes more difficult to get over the longer you hold on to it, let it go!

So Stone Sour debuted on the Billboard 200 at 8, while Nickelback debuted at 5.  I guess their argument worked for both of them.

http://loudwire.com/stone-sours-hydrograd-disc-debuts-at-no-8-on-billboard-200-album-chart/

Kim was out Tuesday night, I watched “Suicide Squad” the extended cut.  I guess I’m the odd one out?  “Wonder Woman” was good other than it was set in a historical event, that was what irked me about it!  “Batman vs. Superman” I liked, “Man of Steel” was……………….meh OK.  “Wonder Woman” was good but it bothered me that it was during a historical event.

 

The “In Flames” album I fell asleep to, is the album where 75% of their fan base started complaining that they weren’t heavy enough to be considered a metal band.  OK, what are they then.  That album would NOT be played on the Regina rock station.  I like that & many more of their albums.  Maybe people don’t see it as metal, & that’s fine with me.  It doesn’t HAVE to be metal in order to be good.

 

Nickelback fan?  Meet other Nickelback fans!

Why was Kim Kardashian wearing a “Morbid Angel” shirt?  It was either comfortable or she must be a fan?

http://loudwire.com/kim-kardashian-morbid-angel-sweater/

It’s a band shirt, “Morbid Angle” just got some promotion that probably is being sent outside of their demographic.

 

I’ve been listening to a lot of Canadian rock lately, as well as the newer albums I’ve purchased.  Mostly “Royal Blood” & “The Matthew Good Band”

 

Would I go to my 20th high school reunion?  Nah, I was there, I know what went on, I’m good.

Kim’s back has been really sore this weekend, even sore a bit at work on Friday.  We stayed home all weekend.  Kim’s been using my walker when she needs to get up.  She’s spent most of the weekend on the couch.  She tries so hard to be Super-girl.  I keep telling her to relax & that I’ll get whatever she needs.  It’s a change of pace for both of us.  A change as to who’s taking care of who.  I’ve done more this weekend so Kim can rest her back.  She’s still in quite a bit of pain.   Now that I’ve figured out how to do more, I intended to keep it up.

We had plans today, Kim just can’t do it though.  Her back is just too sore.

She slept on the couch last night, she was in too much pain to make it to the bedroom.  Today she’s laying on the laminate flooring.  I’ll be watching the 162nd/final game of the regular season for MLB today between the Toronto Blue Jays vs. The Boston Red Sox.

 

*Correction

The Toronto Blue Jays in the month of April won 11 games & lost 15 games.  If that record was reversed to 15W-11L these last 3 games of the regular season in Boston wouldn’t be so crucial.  Every broadcaster talks about “meaningful games” in September.  The games in April mean nothing now?  Give me a break?!?

RATING & REVIEWS ARE ODD

I exercised to “Corrosion of Conformity” the album “Blind”

I did my squats in silence & had to rest to catch my breath.

Weird/early baseball game today?

 

I was looking at “Suicide Squad” to purchase.  I’ve heard nothing but bad things about the movie.  I look on iTunes & it’s rated terribly, Amazon reviews are very positive 4/5 stars.  Batman vs. Superman was rated terribly also, after seeing it in the theater, I bought it ASAP on iTunes & I’ve likely watched the “Ultimate Edition” 6 or 7 times.  Remember, I had 2 weeks without a computer.  I watched movies & read a lot.

I guess I do reviews in a way, “Check it out” or “Stay away” from this thing.  I guess that’s my take on whatever the subject is.  So I encourage you to check out whatever you like either on this blog or from a friend.  I’m not always right about what you may or may not like.  Batman vs. Superman is hands down the best comic book movie I’ve seen.  That includes “300” & “300 Rise of an Empire” or at least as good, but that’s just my take on it.

 

Oh, happy day!  Yesterday immediately after I posted the blog, I checked iTunes.  Highly Suspect finally had the preorder for their new (2nd) album, “The Boy Who Died Wolf”  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

In Flames shared it….

 

Heard some of the outro music from the new Big Wreck album on Facebook.  Sounding REALLY good, looking forward to it.  Nice follow up to this album………….

WHO IS ALEX JONES?

I fell asleep to “Our Lady Peace” the album “Naveed”, then “A Perfect Circle” the album “Mer de Noms” & after a pee at 3:30 am “Queen” their “Greatest Hits”.

I emptied the dishwasher to “ I Mother Earth” the album “The Quicksilver Meat Dream”

I exercised to “I Mother Earth” the album “Scenery & Fish”

I exercised before I emptied the dishwasher. I also got through my entire workout today. I’m still quite tired though. I didn’t sleep all that well last night. Kim falls asleep in seconds, I’ll be awake for 30 minutes to an hour. “With or without…” music playing.

So who is Alex Jones? I only know him as a loud mouth gun supporter. Yes, Piers Morgan went too far with his anti-gun position on CNN. He didn’t call Alex Jones a “very stupid person”, he called someone else that. For me, that’s crossing the line. Calling someone “stupid” on TV is just wrong, it wont solve anything & nobody should feel good after that.

I’m Canadian, I have no clue who Alex Jones is other than a loud mouth who rarely, if ever, listen’s to anybody else’ opinion. I could google him, but I really don’t care to do so.

Kim hates when I watch this stuff, because I’m quite passionate about this stuff when I see it!

I’m not against the Olympics, I just don’t care to watch most of the events. I’ve seen a person dive. Was it good? I don’t know, they hit the water? I’ve watched swimming & volleyball before, I don’t really need to see it again? I’ve seen a 100 meter, 200 meter & a relay before, I’m good. The events at the Olympics seem very similar to the events I’ve seen at previous Olympics. We had it on here briefly last night, diving was on. I watched for a bit, & couldn’t really tell if it was good dive or a bad dive? They hit the water in the pool 10! 5? What was wrong with that dive? That person landed in the water too? I’m lost, I guess I need to be learned?

Friday, we went to see the movie “Sausage Party” it was good, I enjoyed it. The first R rated CGI/cartoon movie made. I liked it but I don’t need to see it again, once is enough for me. NOT FOR KIDS, LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!

Saturday, watched the Blue Jays win, 4-2, in the afternoon on TV at home. Watched the home town Saskatchewan Roughriders lose……………………again 19-10. I can’t have any fluid since the washrooms are nowhere close to us, the sun is beating down on us the entire time, Kim pays close to $700 a year so I can be there to watch them lose. Since winning the Championship in 2013 the home town Saskatchewan Roughriders have a win-loss record of 14W-29L. It’s a bit financially straining on us now, a $300 increase for next year in the new stadium I think will be a one year thing hopefully in a handicap seat. 12 stairs up & 12 stairs down is not easy for me. Dad & I get there an hour before the game to watch the warm up & not slow down others as they get to the stadium, & we wait about 30 minutes after the game so we don’t slow anyone down on the way out.

Today it’s laundry, groceries & Blue Jay baseball is done for the weekend. The Blue Jays scored 9 runs in a win today, the Riders scored 10 points in a loss yesterday.

Kevin Smith & his 17 year old daughter, Harley Quinn, loved “Suicide Squad”. I love Kevin Smith movies so from him & the fact he’s comic fan who named his daughter after a Batman villain. I’ll Just purchase the blu-ray! I’d show you the video of his review but it’s not appropriate unless you’re a fan of his. Apparently there will be a follow up, stand alone, Harley Quinn movie.

Alex Rodriguez’ last day, Friday, as an MLB player! Article regarding him. He used steroids, got caught, used them again, lied, got caught & continued to lie about it. His statistics would easily put him in the Hall of Fame, but he cheated & will likely never be on the ballot. I think Ty Cobb is in it, but he was accused of murder. They need to reevaluate who’s in there? I have no sympathy for athletes that cheat! He’s currently, has been for quite some time now, the most hated player in the game! Once he got to NY, he’s been known to keep a distance from teammates. On Thursday all of a sudden he has had nothing but praise from teammates & other players?

ROUGH NIGHT, MORE SO FOR KIM/MORALITY ISSUE REGARDING OZZY

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

From their first album released in 1997. This is a live version from Roy Thompson Hall w/ The Toronto Symphony Orchestra. This is also the song they were playing in 1999 when I broke my nose at a 1 day festival in Saskatoon called Edgefest. Still the only broken bone I’ve ever had.

This is for anyone & everyone who might find this interesting! Please help me out if you don’t mind? I’ve been sharing this publically on my page, I don’t think it’s helping? Please do what you can to spread the word?

Yes, we had a rough night, that’s why I don’t remember what I fell asleep to. I do remember listening to 1 of 4 or 5 entire albums “Pearl Jam” the album “Yield”

Kim was up & down from the bed last night. Brewster has terrible anxiety when just about anything out of the ordinary happens. Last night there was a storm. The first crack of thunder & Brewster starts freaking out. Up & down of the bed, which means Kim has to help him up onto the bed, he is small & can’t jump that high. He has anti-anxiety pills, valium, he doesn’t take them if he smells it inside of whatever bite of food we try to cover it in? I understand why he doesn’t like it, so does Kim. He trips & falls over when he gets a pill, & it’s not good for his liver.

By the time I fell asleep it had to have been after 1:00 am? Kim was up much longer cleaning up Brewster’s poop & pee while he wandered throughout the house, then I fell asleep after useless trying to calm him down. Kim figures she got 2 hours of sleep because he wouldn’t take his pill.

He’s 10 ½ years old now. You think he’d be over this but he’s not. Guess who’s sleeping in his bed on the floor beside me? We’re not supposed to coddle him when he’s panting & pacing around the house, so we don’t, but he still does it anyways.

The rest of this I wrote yesterday!

A SHORT RANT ABOUT NOTHING THAT BECAME A LONG RANT

I love watching the Toronto Blue Jays pregame, it’s good for a laugh! It’s fun watching the Blue Jay analyst, Gregg Zaun, get so bent out of shape because of new rules. He was a catcher in the major leagues for 15 years, I believe mainly a back up catcher, I could be wrong? His last game played was in 2010. He’s now a part of a ½ hour pregame show on every Blue Jay game. What I find amusing is that I hear him, almost daily, say “The game’s been played this way forever! Why change it now?”. Well, “….it’s called evolution baby….”

Now onto “Prime Time Sports with Bob McCowen” who defends Blue Jay knuckle ball pitcher 42 year old R.A. Dickey. I only watch his first hour on Mondays & Fridays when he takes calls from anyone about any sport. The Blue Jays acquired Dickey in 2013. He won the Cy Young award in the National league in 2012 with the NY Mets. After his win Tuesday evening in Houston he is currently 8W-12L for the year. Pretty bad if you ask me. I, like many others including himself, have no clue how he’ll pitch on any given day? The knuckle ball is different than any other pitch & few people can throw it. It does not spin, without it spinning it floats, flutters, & dives where ever. You throw it towards the catcher & hope it hits the strike zone. Personally, too much of a risk for me.

I listen to Bob McCowen & he says “Wait until Dickey gets to the 2nd half of the season, he’s really good!” Great Bob, that makes me feel better……wait…………..a full season is 32 starts. So 16 of them I’m not supposed to worry about? The games in April count as much as the games in September I thought. So including Tuesday’s win he’s 1W-3L in his last four games & we’re in the 2nd half of the season? Great!…………………….I’m confused?

Starting pitcher Aaron Sanchez is 24 years old & on pace to have a Cy Young year. The Cy Young award is given to the 2 best pitchers during a season, 1 National league pitcher & 1 American league pitcher. This is Aaron Sanchez’s first full year as a starting pitcher. The Blue Jays brass has said he will be going to the bull pen, joining the relief pitchers. Why? They want to baby him so that his arm wont fall off, & save him for the potential playoffs. His arm is safer as a reliever? If his arm falls off who cares where he’s pitching? He’s young & already among the best pitchers in the game. What if he moves to the bullpen & the Jays don’t make the playoffs? Now who’s got mud on their face? What are you going to do with him next year?

Ha! I’m not the only one! Most Blue Jay fans will agree!

All n’ all it’s a GAME. I disagree with some of this & agree with some of this but I’m just a fan who’s played in the city league from 4-17 years of age, nothing more. I don’t know everything & there’s a reason I’m not a member of the organization.

RANT OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
