I fell asleep to “Kelly Clarkson” the album “Meaning of Life”

Exercise total for the week, 200 crunches, 300 push ups, & 100 squats.  2 days of 3 exercise.  BOOOOOOO!

As far as exercise this week, I’ve been feeling quite lazy.  Monday I only did 3 of 6 exercises, Tuesday I did nothing, & Wednesday was the same as Monday.  Just lazy & tired?

OK, I’m out for the week, congested, dry mouth, & a cough.  For me this usually means catch you next week.  I woke up Thursday this way, so I know what’s coming.  I felt a bit better during the day, after taking some Dayquil, but it’s worn off, Nyquil here I come, you too Vicks!

What a waste of a week.  I’d much rather have had the energy to do my all of my exercises.  Other than a disc bulging in my spine early last year, I don’t think I’ve been sick as much as I was before cancer?

I was sick VERY often while working & even fairly frequently in school as well.  Not cool at all.  There was a day that I was so sick I almost called Kim to come home.  My fever was so bad that I had trouble walking.

If you want to find me today, I’ll be on the couch blowing my nose, on Dayquil.


Well that makes 2 album releases in March (for me) now.

Myles Kennedy – Year of the Tiger (March 9th)

Stone Temple Pilots – Stone Temple Pilots (2018) release March 16th



I like most of his solo stuff, but I prefer his work in “Alter Bridge”.  Here comes solo album number 4.


I completely agree with this!  Streaming sites & even iTunes have made music VERY disposable I believe.  On the plus side any type of “Social media” & cheap music has me purchasing more albums & new artists.  There are pros & cons to both.  Now I don’t buy all of the new albums.  I know what I’ll purchase & what I don’t need to purchase!


Read all about “Suits” moving on with the end of season 7 into season 8!


It’s on Netflix or Bravo on Access Communications in Saskatchewan.


What I don’t/will likely not understand but acknowledge is that so many people hated “Batman vs. Superman” yet it was the #1 movie in the world for 2 weeks.  A lot of people are the same way with “Nickelback” yet they have over 18,000,000 fans just on Facebook?  Why waste your time hating a band?  Just don’t listen to them, works for me?!  I liked this song INITIALLY.

I couldn’t care less if you like or don’t like this band or this movie.  Everybody’s opinion is valid.  Just don’t waste your time or energy on hating art?

I fell asleep to “Opeth” the album “Ghost Reveries”

I woke up to “Dream Theater” the album “Systematic Chaos”

I emptied the dishwasher to “Jimmy Eat World” the album “Chase this Light”

I exercised to ”Lamb of God” the latest album “Strum Und Drang”

When Kim’s at work I play my music & watch my TV or Movies that she doesn’t care for. Takes me about a week to watch a movie though. Exercise, Brewster & whatever else take priority.

I don’t see myself as physically handicapped. Probably because I can be very stubborn. A few years ago I would agree that I was physically handicapped. Yes, I need assistance with certain things, as time goes by though, there are fewer things I need help with.

Kim was helping me walk last night. We put Brewster in our parked vehicle in the parking garage, he’s like having a child, in that he can’t be left alone. I was waiting in the lobby for Kim to come back from putting Brewster in the vehicle. In the meantime I struck up a conversation with another person about the age of Kim & I, maybe a bit younger? She was also in a wheelchair. We didn’t speak for long, our parking spot isn’t too far away at all. I asked “Can I ask what put you in a wheelchair?” She replied & said “Car crash”. We didn’t speak much after that because of limited time.

What I took away from that conversation was that anyone’s life can change in a millisecond from anything. Be it winning the lottery, starting off in a new school, getting off a plane somewhere you’ve never been before, being diagnosed with any life threatening disease or being involved in any accident, etc. Life is whatever you make of it. You’re born & you’ll die. Everything in between is up to you.

Ah, “Suits” back for another season! It was on Bravo last night, a pleasant surprise from our DVR. We watch too much TV as it is, but I missed that show more than I thought.


“Sevendust” with “Trivium” spring 2016 U.S.A. tour dates!


I love this song!!! I used to know it.

New Rob Zombie song. I’m a casual fan of him & his former group “White Zombie” his solo stuff has much more of a pop sound to it.


I’m still on the fence about this having it’s own show. I think I prefer it on Jimmy Fallon

Geezer Butler retracts statement about Bill Ward. Both members of Black Sabbath


That makes 5 songs in total for the 5th Alter Bridge studio album!!!!

Megadeth’s David Ellefson pays tribute to recently deceased bassist for “Dio” Jimmy Bain


The President & Hillary Clinton weigh in on Oscar controversy. Only caucasians nominated. “Straight Outta Compton” was really good!!!


Coldplay set path for 2016 U.S.A. tour. I still prefer their first two albums. Song from each below!


“Sia”, “Natalie Portman”, “Jimmy Fallon” & “The Roots”


Ian Fletcher Thornley shared it…

“Steel Panther”. Sounds too much like 80s hair metal, not my thing. LANGUAGE!!!!!


New Kevin Smith movie “Yoga Hosers” If you’ve seen any Kevin Smith movie other than “Jersey Girl” & you were offended by it, probably best to skip past this movie.


I’ll have the new “Dream Theater” album tomorrow when I get up!! Thank you iTunes preorder!
