I fell asleep to “Radiohead” the album “OK Computer” followed by “Lamb of God” the album “Sacrament”

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

I hope you all have fun tonight & get home safe!  No drinks for me.  I’m on some powerful muscle relaxants for my annoying nerve.  A few days after I was in the WRC they put on a “happy hour” for the residents.  I went to it.  I’m on multiple pills 3 times a day & I’m not supposed to drink then they turn around & have one of the nurse’s hand out 2 free drinks to anyone?  Holy mixed messages Batman? I don’t remember if I was able to drink anything at the time.  I couldn’t drink anything for quite a while.  My water & food came through IV for a few years.  My IV was full of a liquid called TPN.  I think it was 2010 that I was able to drink through a straw.  Even beer.  You don’t see that “every day”.

Yeah, I saw my chiropractor yesterday.  My dad took me.  I left here before 2:00 pm, then stayed at my parents’ house until after supper.  Kim had a hair appointment & wasn’t going to be home until 8:00pm or so.  Mom sent home some supper for her.

The chiropractor said it moved really well yesterday, & first did a lot of work on my ribs that had moved.  It feels REALLY good now.  He told me to gradually work into a not so demanding exercise & to keep up with my stretches.  So I did today.  Stretches, 100 crunches & 20 pushups.  As far as the leg exercises go, I plan to do them once everything feels 100% better.  Better safe than sorry.

My routine at the moment is slightly wonky, with my nerve being stubborn.  I get up & get ready at 7:00am.  By the time I do that, & pour a cup of coffee it’s near 7:30.  I watch 2 of the 3 late night talk shows I record, then CNN…………….& I laugh about not having a leader who thinks he can do whatever he wants.  I think I see Sean Spicer flapping his lips, trying to spin a quote from Trump, more often than I see Kim?  I can just imagine how he feels when his alarm goes off.  “Ah, what am I gonna have to spin today.  Wait I’ll check twitter”


Princes “New Power Generation” band has some tour dates coming up.  Video inside the link.



The new Green Day isn’t too shabby!



Comedian, Tracy Ullman, points out sexist double standard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



The “Radiohead” album “OK Computer” is & always has been considered one of the most important albums of all time.  The really cool thing was they wrote it while on tour for the album “The Bends” in the late 1990s & Foo Fighters were opening for them.  Foo Fighters would do a 10:00 minute sound check, then Radiohead would do a 2 hour sound check arguing about how to arrange the songs.  Go to 15:12 in the video to hear FF drummer Taylor Hawkins talk about opening for Supergrass & Radiohead way back when.


Yes, I have Supergrass’ greatest hits album, on CD.


“Weird” Al details his next LP with his 8 bit video game music video.  All for his box set “Squeeze the Box”


My, this is HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


New lyric video from Linkin Park



Expected/anticipated hard rock & metal releases for 2017.  A lot of I don’t know, I don’t really care, I don’t think so, a few I can’t wait, & if there’s a new A Perfect Circle being released, we can wait even longer for the next Tool release.  Maynard probably won’t sing on 2 different albums then he’s supposed to tour with A Perfect Circle.  All of this while maintaining a vineyard?



Songs I’ve performed with the handful, 3, groups.

Had my breakfast, then showered & weighed myself.  I was 265 pounds going into the hospital, the photo of me playing guitar in a white T-Shirt is me at 265, with a 38” waist, I came out of the hospital having a 42” waist, & today I’m 225.  Only problem is that some of my T-Shirts still don’t fit.  All of my fat went to my stomach.

I fell asleep to “Megadeth” the album “Dystopia” followed by “Vinyl Hero” the EP “7 Days on a Train”

I was watching CNN/”the fake news” all about the new guy, but I don’t need to tell you about it, it’s messy already!

Yep, I start physio therapy this week.  It’s long overdue that I get rid of this pinched nerve nonsense & get back into exercising.  I know that’s an odd thing to say but humans are creatures of habit.  My routine has been altered for over 2 months & I miss my routine.  Sitting around, stretching & very light exercise each day is really boring if you don’t have a driver’s license.


Top 50 hard rock/metal debut albums


There’s a lot of great choices there.  I’ll pick 2 from the list & there could at least 12 I’d pick.


Pearl Jam shared it….


Phil Anselmo, former vocalist of Pantera, reading a Sesame Street book.



I guess ‘Supergrass’ are still around latest release was in 2013, who knew?  I only own their Greatest Hits album from 2004.

I wonder what movie ends playing “Caught by the Fuzz”?


I have a question for you? I’ve been watching a www.youtube.com series called “Banger” with the review episodes called “Lock Horns”, made by Sam Dunn who made the documentary “A Headbanger’s Journey.”  The 2016 ending had a large board of “metal” bands.  Am I so jaded that I don’t consider “Coheed & Cambria” metal? I like their music, I just don’t consider them as a “metal” or “hard rock” band, should I?


My left hand doesn’t work that well.  I wish I could try out a mini original Nintendo or a Sega Genesis if they come back.  I looked up the price of a mini Nintendo, but no way Jose!


All of that being said, I really don’t have much free time for video games.  The newer controllers have too many buttons for me, even when I was able bodied.


New “Ed Sheeran” video.  I really like this tune, or Ed Sheeran in general!


Alter Bridge shared “My Champion” live…………….


New Opeth video


I guess “Trivium” has a new drummer

WINTER’S COMING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOO HOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Trivium’s” ‘Silence in the Snow’ album. I’m tired this week. I’m not taking the week off, just scaling my exercise back a bit. Instead of doing 2 out of 7 exercises a day, I’ll do one this week. Today was 40 leg lifts on each leg from my hands & knees. Tomorrow will be something different, what? I don’t know?

I can tell winter is very near, not just by the calendar either! Here in Regina, Saskatchewan, with no daylight savings time (which I like), it’s quite dark by 7:30 pm. When it’s full on winter (December & January) people go to work when it’s dark & come home when it’s dark. Kim & I would carpool to work when we started at the same time. She would start at 7am, so my boss would let me come in an hour earlier than everyone else. Kim eventually changed to 8 am, so I would just come in at the same time as everyone else. The print shops we worked at weren’t that far apart in town, & our initial house wasn’t far from them. When we’d carpool in the winter it was always dark in the morning & nearing the dark when we’d come home. Thank goodness for remote car starters! Go to the kitchen window, hit the button & let the car warm up a bit! Seat warmers, I just don’t like. I didn’t have them growing up, so why do I need them now?

I’m different than most Canadians! Everybody wants to go on a warm all expenses paid resort vacation in the winter,………………..NOT ME! I hate the heat when it’s above 23 degrees celsius. Just too hot for me. That’s roughly 80 degrees fahrenheit for those not on the celsius scale. Just remember, if it’s cold I can layer up, if it’s hot I can only get so naked……………………………legally!

10 best cover songs by “Pearl Jam”. Lot’s of songs I had no idea they’d cover & a couple I’ve heard and/or have seen live.


Proof that Donald Trump is your drunk neighbour.

I can’t stand the WWE anymore. I grew out of it in the early ’90s or late ’80s. There was a claymation TV show that was pretty good though. I can’t remember, but I think I rented it as an X Box game?


Does anyone over the age of 24 even care about MTV or Much Music? Neither of the stations play music videos for more than an hour a day, from what I’ve seen on our guide?


Jared Leto on playing the role of “The Joker” in ‘Suicide Squad’


Top 5 “Arctic Monkeys” songs. I’ve heard the name but never really bothered to check them out.


Cool! Pentatonix hit number 1 on the Billboard Charts! Not bad for 5 singers with no other instruments!


The Glorious Sons…

Halloween is coming up. It just seems like extra work to dress up & go to a halloween party to me, more now than when I was in my early-mid 20s. It was fun then seem like extra work now.

“The Darkness” interviewed on Consequence of Sound/the Rock It Out Blog! I gave you 2 songs for reference & to “stir the pot” for my brother. First single from their first album & a single from their new/4th album.

This not the “Blown Wide Open” we know from ’97! This Ian Fletcher Thornley’s reworked version coming out on October 30th

This is the 1997 version we know well & have heard many times, yet it never get’s old. Both are good, it will just take me time to get used to the new version “Blown Wide Open 2.0?”

Songs I like, “Supergrass” a Greatest Hits from 1994-2004.

I wonder what song is played during the credits for this HILARIOUS movie. If you like Monty Python or Kevin Smith movies, these guys are for you!
