Don’t feel as though you have to click on every link.

I figure it’s close to the holidays, so 1-3 more blogs & my list of albums of the year should do it for 2016.  Yes, I already know what my New Year’s resolution is & I don’t make resolutions often.  I plan to add cardio to my exercise list.  Recumbent exercise bike or walking with my walker every Saturday morning.  I’ll need help & Kim has agreed to go with me.  We can walk in the parkade &  I’ll need help on & off the exercise bike.  Of course I’ll be doing that here.  No point in me spending money on a gym membership when I can do that here!

This pinched nerve thing can go away anytime.  It felt really as though it was “on the mend” during the week then on Saturday evening watching a movie with Kim, I had to ask her if she could move to the other couch so that I could lay down on my side.  At the moment it’s nearing 7:00 am on Sunday, December 11, 2016.  I’ve listen to 2.5 albums on my iPod while trying to get comfortable in bed, got up, shaved, had breakfast, poured a coffee, & now I’m here.  Waking up because of pain that early, not cool.

Tuesday evening, saw my chiropractor today & he’s confused as to why it hasn’t healed?  Another message therapy & another chiropractor appointment if needed.  4 weeks down the toilet exercise wise.

 

And all of the disbelievers will rant about how this is such a waste of time.

Canada tends to get the typical “Canadian” tour from most groups.  Montreal, Toronto, & Vancouver.  All are minimum a 2 or 3 day drive from Saskatchewan.  As much as I love live music, there’s no way I could justify sitting in a vehicle that long for a concert, & flying is too expensive!

Friday night.  We rented “Bad Moms” from iTunes, I guess everyone but me has just turned 97 years old & doing anything after 9:00 pm is wrong so I hit the hay around 9:30-10:00 pm too.  Saturday was more of the same.  We watched “Before the Flood” for free.  It’s a documentary with Leonardo DiCaprio that talks about global warming.  He made a brief appearance on The Ellen Degeneres show to promote the film.  It’s free for I don’t know how long, you can currently watch it for free on iTunes & Facebook from what I know.  No plans for today so far though, Kim’s getting ready for the week & I’m just staying out of her way.

 

Why would you move to the country to eat canned peaches from downtown?  Wouldn’t you move closer to the factory downtown or a supermarket?

 

Another, 4th, In Flames song released from the upcoming album “Battles” to be released on Friday, November 11th.

 

A single from Big Wreck.  It’s on iTunes as a single, I’m guessing there will be a full album eventually?

 

A third Highly Suspect song from their album to be released on Friday, November 18thLANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Pretty much a guarantee from this group.

 

I Mother Earth was playing in Moncton, New Brunswick.  They likely played this song since it’s on the album that was released 20 years ago.  They’re playing every song on that album.

This article with singer, Taylor Momsen, of The Pretty Reckless sort of explains why I wrote lyrics without a literal meaning.  There was no “THIS IS WHAT IT’S ABOUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”  Don’t most people hear a song & figure out how it applies to them personally?  That’s why I listen to so much music.  Sometimes I want to think about it & other times I just want to be entertained.

WEEKEND UPDATE

This is me during my day, followed by music info because I want the music info as well.  If you don’t want to read it, don’t feel as though you have to, it won’t hurt my feelings.  You can read the cancer stuff, the pop culture stuff or not read it at all, it’s totally your choice & whatever you choose is just fine by me.  So don’t feel pressured to read this.

 

What did we do this weekend?  NOTHING AT ALL!  I don’t like sitting at home on a Friday or Saturday night but nobody we talked to wanted to play.  My mind says I’m 25 my body is more realistic at 36!  I did go to the Saskatchewan Roughrider game with my dad on Sunday.  I don’t have a handicap seat.  My father pushes my chair up 2 ramps, I go up 10 or 12 steps & our seats are right in front of us, seats 1 & 2.  Next year, in the new stadium should be even better.  About 2 steps from the main level.  The first level is built into the ground, & we’re in the top row seats 1, 2, & 3.  My mother can’t get to where our seats are at the moment so she has sold her ticket to the people beside us but has kept it in her name.  They’ve chosen to sit closer to field level in the new stadium.  Our seats should be easier for my mother to get to, so she’ll be with us!

Don’t get me wrong!  I enjoy other stuff also Harry Connick jr., Norah Jones, Nat King Cole, Classical music in general, etc.  It’s very subjective.  A good song is a good song.  My habits just lean towards the rock & metal side of things.

I’m not a huge fan of them.  I own 4 CDs “Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magic” which I never listen to, “By The Way”, “Californication”, those 2 I listen to occasionally, & the double album “Stadium Arcadium”  I listened to it once or twice & it’s been in hiding ever since I bought it.

LANGUAGE!!!!   Yes, I’ve sang this.  Not my style at all!  I prefer listening to this!

 

I’ll take “The Pretty Reckless” just for the song.  Full album out on October 21st.  The song by “Kaleo” is pretty good, I’ve just never heard of them before, sounds really good though.

http://loudwire.com/the-pretty-reckless-vs-kaleo-cage-match/

Kaleo has 4 or 5 albums, EPs, & singles available.  Similar to Jack Johnson, just slightly heavier?  Gritty?  Nowhere near hard rock or metal.

EVOLUTION

I fell asleep to “Tool” the album “Lateralus”

^^You’ll be very lucky if you hear this live. Rumor is the singer, Maynard James Keenan, blew his voice when recording this song & missed 3 weeks because of it?

I exercised to “Anthrax” 15 albums on shuffle.

Sorry, Netflix got me again. This time it was a David Cross stand up special. He echoed many of my statements on gun control in the USA. He filmed the special in Texas. That’s a fairly brave move in my books! He asked a question that has struck me many times. “How many innocent lives will it take before someone will do something about these mass shootings”? I thought for a bit & came up with an answer, different from his punchline.

It doesn’t have to take anymore innocent lives. You want something to change………………do it yourself. Don’t sit around & wait for someone else to do it? Easier said than done I know. I don’t vote for any Canadian elections. So call me what you will? If you’re American, vote, talk to your Mayor, Governor or even write to whoever becomes the next President. Isn’t part of the “American dream” being able to be free & able to make a difference? If so, stand up & be heard. Start that motion for change, be a leader not a follower, be aggressive, don’t be happy with the way things are. If you want a change, make it happen!

Why do I workout so much? Because I want a change of me! Nobody else can do it, just me. It’s not an easy change, people hate change or are scared of it. Change can be good. I hate new technology. Eventually I’ll have to get over that! Remember, you don’t have to start out with a HUGE change. Make a small change if you like, then make another small change & after a while it will look like a big change. I didn’t wake up one day & say “I’m going to do 1500 crunches today!” I built up to that total, starting at 20 crunches. Not much will change over night, just start chipping away at the mountain.

As a society we’re currently back tracking when we need to evolve! Not just me, but all of us!

WHY DO I WORK OUT SO MUCH?

I fell asleep to “The Watchmen” first the album “Brand New Day”

Then the album “Fast Forward & Rewind” it’s a double album “Fast Forward” is new music “Rewind” is a greatest hits album that I never listen to since I can listen to every album front to back.

Woke up to pee in the middle of the night crawled back into bed & listened to their album “Silent Radar” This album is one of my favourite albums of all time right up there with Foo Fighters “The Colour & The Shape”

I tried to exercised to “Barenaked Ladies” but there’s a storm here. It kept kicking me out of iTunes after 2 songs, I tried 5 times & gave up. I exercised in silence for the most part.

Having survived stage 4 brain cancer, I have to exercise if I’m not OK with the status quot When I do my exercise total at the end of the week that’s 5 days of exercising & I break down what amount of which exercises I’ve done each day. Getting back into my regular routine is much more difficult than I expected to be, but it’s getting very close & after a few weeks of it, I’ll likely add another exercise to it or increase the amount of one of the exercises. For that reason alone I have to exercise & hopefully get out of this wheelchair.

I don’t look at being in a wheelchair as a disability, I look to the pros of being in a wheelchair & having an eye patch. I get rock star parking, I always have a designated driver, & when I go out I get treated very well. Some stranger is always holding a door open for me & if someone makes a reservation at a restaurant & mentions a wheelchair seat, the place usually has a table available.

If I don’t exercise, it feels like a waste of a day. So I exercise a TON Monday-Friday. Those two weeks off with my back being screwed up, that was a waste of time for me. I don’t like sitting around & doing nothing all of the time! Weekends are fine but during the week people go to work so I might as well also work. What else do I have to do? Stuff around the house, take care of Brewster & exercise. Once I’ve exercised & finished a blog post I consider my day done & get to whatever else I can.

Life in a wheelchair could be MUCH worse. It’s not what Kim & I signed up for but we make it work. Once I’m comfortable & figure out how to do things easily at a public venue, I’m OK.

I fall on occasion & I’ve sort of figured out how to fall without really hurting myself. I know how to get back up & approach things differently so I don’t make the same mistake again. Sometimes it takes multiple efforts & failing at it, so I do most things different than others do, no big deal.

I also exercise to lose some weight. I went into the hospital with a 38” waist, now 38” are too small & 40” is too big? If you know of anyone that makes dress pants with a 39 15/32 “ waist, send them my way please?

Remember the horror movie “The Ring” with the video people watched then got a phone call saying they’ll die in the next 7days? There was a fly on the screen when they watched the video that turned out to be real. We have a fly in our house at the moment. It landed on the TV while I was here alone. I peed a bit & begged for the phone not to ring. It didn’t, I’m here, I’m alive.

I saw my chiropractor for my back pain Wednesday morning. Had a message & some adjustments (cracks). I guess my back muscles are very tight? I might have to go back next week? We’ll see how the weekend goes? It does feel better, & I have some stretches to do for my back that he showed me. Could be worse I guess. This has happened before. I hurt my back twice in high school. Twisted at my desk to borrow a pencil, went home for lunch, layed on the kitchen floor & couldn’t go back for the afternoon. Second time in high school. I picked up a piece of paper from beside my bed & there went my back! Then multiple times after that & 7 cortisone shots in my spine, through 4.5 years in the hospital. All in all, not that big of a deal.

10 best live bands in metal right now.

http://www.laweekly.com/music/the-10-best-live-bands-in-metal-right-now-7142677

I’ll take Trivium, Lamb of God, or In Flames as far as “popular” metal bands go.

There are a TON of “famous” metal bands I haven’t seen live yet, like “Iron Maiden”.

Kim’s watching a Tony Robbins thing on Netflix at the moment. He could compete with Dave Grohl for the number of F-Bombs during a live show! Nothing like paying a stranger to tell you how to live your life!

These are the 3 albums in heavy rotation here now!

From what I know, Alter Bridge will release their 5th album in September sometime? I think The Pretty Reckless have an album recorded? The only preorder I have is Sum 41 for October 7th. I have these 2 songs so far.

Nothing from Alter Bridge yet & no album announced by The Pretty Reckless so far, just this single. The Sum 41 song will be on the upcoming album.

Top 50 metal bands of all time

http://loudwire.com/top-metal-bands-of-all-time/

Quite a few overrated bands, some bands missing from that list & some right on point.

Gotta say I wasn’t overjoyed with Ian Fletcher Thornley’s solo album. It’s good but I prefer his stuff in Big Wreck.

Hands down my favourite movie dance scene ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Who gets to take an afternoon off to be at a baseball game at 4:00 pm eastern time in N.Y.? It baffles me that they have a decent crowd for games at that time?

So I was watching “The Ellen Degeneres Show” while she interviewed Hillary Clinton. They’re both tired of the campaign, who isn’t? At least when it’s all said & done they get to vote. As Canadians we just get to watch the 3 ring circus called Donald Trump until, hopefully November. If he gets elected I’ll be EXTREMELY worried! Face it, nobody gives a hoot about Canada, we’re pretty much known as that cold country above the USA. I don’t really follow politics at all, & I don’t vote. I’m not telling you who to vote for, I’m saying I’d vote for Hillary Clinton ASAP! If Trump is elected, I’ll suggest to Justin Trudeau that Canada should build a wall at our southern border & make the USA pay for it? Remember Trump, you’re “…really rich…”

Green Day albums ranked

http://loudwire.com/green-day-albums-ranked/

I do like “Uno” which is ranked among the worst albums. Music is VERY subjective. To each their own!

Pretty good despite the lack of a 2nd guitar!

At midnight eastern time tonight the new “Tegan and Sara” album “Boyfriend” will be available for download on iTunes.

In Flames shared it……

Tremonti’s on the road

“Landed in Frankfurt! I have no idea how the crew is going to fit all of our gear into this tiny trailer, hope they are good at Tetris!”

Let’s see what the kid thinks of “Dust”

For what it’s worth I prefer “Cauterize” over “Dust” both are really good though, if you’re into this type of music.

Well, look at that another article, Q & A, with Mark Tremonti?? Who’d have thought.

New band alert, well I’ve never heard of them? “Stitched up Heart” borderline metal if you like “Halestorm” and/or “The Pretty Reckless”, this is worth checking out. First full length album available for preorder on iTunes. Release date of June 17. There is also a single & a 3 song EP on iTunes available now.

http://loudwire.com/stitched-up-heart-monster-video/

I went to iTunes to preorder this album. We now have an “Apple Music” account & now iTunes is screwed up again. I search for something I’ve bought in “My Music” & it takes me to the “Apple Music” site? How I wish Steve Jobs was still alive!

Oh, Jimmy Fallon with Adam Sandler.
