Thursday evening Kim came home & we pretty much left immediately to see “Spiderman: Homecoming”.  FANTASTIC movie!  I know comic book movies aren’t for everyone, but I’m all in for the Marvel & DC comic book movies!  “300” & “300 Rise of an Empire” were really good as well.  I couldn’t get into “Sin City” or any other graphic novel movies though.

 

That was our Thursday evening.  Friday morning we woke up & weren’t sure what to do with ourselves.  I had 3 things that needed to be done.  We went out in the late afternoon.  I had my Roughrider jersey from Andy Fantuz fixed, Kim picked up a few groceries we needed for supper.  Brewster & I went along but stayed in the vehicle.  He loves going for a “car ride”.  A “ride” in the summer means he gets to drool/pant all over my arm until we’re somewhere I can roll down the window for him!

Friday, after the few errands were done, we just stayed home.  I watched the Toronto Blue Jays actually win a game & Kim put the house back together after a morning of cleaning.  She doesn’t just clean, she does “spring cleaning” every weekend.  Everything is 10 feet away from where it’s supposed to be so she can clean underneath where it was!  I just try to stay out of her way!

Saturday we went over to my parents place for some BBQ ribs after an afternoon in the backyard, with my mother & aunt.  I found out the hard way that Molson original 16 in a can is a wee bit too carbonated for me, I switched to rum & coke!

Sundays are pretty quiet here.  Kim’s got a few things left on the grocery list.  I made a juice for the week.  Peeled all remaining carrots to BBQ them then keep them handy in the fridge.  BBQ carrots & onion are commonly a vegetable for supper or some type of broccoli dish, I love broccoli!  I’m in the middle of a Blue Jays game at the moment.

That’s our weekend here.  Remember it will be quiet on the blog page until Thursday again, I’ll catch you then!

 

IF YOU’RE HERE FOR THE UPDATE, THAT’S ALL THAT I HAVE FOR YOU TODAY.

 

Another reason for me to NOT buy terrible overpriced Molson beer at the new Mosaic Stadium!  $9 for a regular size can of Pilsner, Coors, or Coors Light……..NOT HAPPENING!

http://globalnews.ca/video/3594992/we-had-our-hopes-up-sask-craft-brewers-disappointed-their-beer-wont-be-sold-at-mosaic-stadium

http://regina.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=1167315&binId=1.1165847&playlistPageNum=1#_gus&_gucid=&_gup=Facebook&_gsc=8qmzzbP

No Bushwakker’s or Rebellion?!?  No more beer for me at the new Mosaic stadium!  This no local beer really bugs me since the Saskatchewan Roughriders are a “community owned” team.  I don’t typically drink beer at a game, but lots of others do, & most of them don’t seem to care what it is as long as there is alcohol in it.  This “no community craft beer” rule is a laughable situation.  “Kick the little guy while we let the big corporate Molson Brewing control all & reap the benefits by charging our customers 300% than the store bought price”

If I really need to, I’ll get drunk at home, on craft beer & pay less while doing so.

FYI, I’ve only seen Molson Canadian being consumed by those that have just turned the legal age to drink alcohol or at a football game.  It’s like Fosters beer in Australia, Australians don’t drink much Foster’s beer from what I hear?

 

Haha!  Stone Sour #1 on Billboard hard rock charts.  It was just a matter of time.

I fell asleep to “Pearl Jam” the album “Ten”

Just stretching to “Soundgarden” the album “Badmotorfinger”

 

Yes, I’m feeling better, I just have an annoying cough that I can’t shake off.  My chiropractor saw my MRI.  He said I could have surgery ASAP or leave it until later on.  My leg & back feel fine right now, but I’ll see the surgeon & have the surgery as soon as I can.  Why wait, let’s get it done & over with.

I chatting with a friend of mine who’s friend’s daughter was mugged & shot in the face.  The daughter is 24-25.  My friend was angry that something that stupid & random could even happen.  Kim & I watch The Ellen Degeneres Show every day.  First thing when Kim gets home from work.  I couldn’t find the author she had on the show Wednesday, but I tried to remember something the author said.  The author of the book had lost a young child.

I remember the author saying ‘Don’t ask if you can do something.  Just do something to help.  Don’t make them reach out to you.’  That really got to me, that’s what I told my friend.

I never thought of it that way?  I’ll remember that.  Of course they need help, anyone in that situation would.  The smallest thing can go a long way.

Nothing is certain in life other than “I know I was born & I know that I’ll die the in between is mine”

Sure, the in between is yours but there’s often random people or things that can mess with your life.  You have to learn how to deal with situations that arise.

http://www.reginapolice.ca/2017/04/request-assistance-robbery-7/

I remember being in the hospital & people would ask me what I needed or wanted.  Cam & Michelle asked me what I needed.  I wanted to live, but that’s not what I asked for.  I asked for a copy of “Batman: The Dark Knight” that had recently been released.  My uncle in Airdrie, Alberta also asked what I needed I said ‘The Rick Mercer Report’ book.

I don’t know what I was thinking, the fact that they caught me awake was a shot in the dark!  I watched the movie in the hospital.  I tried to read the book but didn’t realize I had bad double vision.

I didn’t really know I had cancer with a very slim chance of surviving.  I figured I was maybe sleep deprived or something like that.  Corey brought me the 2nd Thornley album that he knew I was waiting for.  Laurie brought me 2 signed guitars, 1 signed by Ian Thornley for me, & 1 signed by Chad Kroeger of “Nickelback” to raffle off.

Those all may seem like little insignificant things, but they’re were all sincere & showed that they care.

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today.  Slow/Quiet week.  Stretching everyday & many routine appointments to come by the end of July.

 

I just googled release dates for 2017 that are confirmed, but yet to be recorded, I saw no Tool.  I did see A Perfect Circle though under the TBA section.

 

Highly Suspect made a 2nd video from their 2nd album.  “The Boy Who Died Wolf” the song “Little One” LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Todd Bryanton’s “Beep Beep I’m a Sheep” got a remix!

 

Took long enough.  The Stone Sour album has a release date on June 30th, preorder is now available on iTunes

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Dave Grohl & his mother, Virginia Grohl, on Stephen Colbert

 

Soundgarden shared it.  I was listening to this album earlier this week!

 

I like these guys catchy pop band that still remind me of INXS light.

I don’t get the point of reissued albums?  Always comes off to me as a cash grab for the artist or their estate.

FYI I saw a photo earlier this week of Soundgarden rehearsing & the caption said “Rehearsing for tour”

MERRY CHRISTMAS/HAPPY HOLIDAYS/ENJOY SOME TIME OFF OF WORK!

Being politically correct is really not for me, but there it is for you!

 

Nothing but Thieves – Self Titled.  I’d put this as my number 1 album of the year!  This is not a metal album!

 

Stitched Up Heart – Never Alone.  This & Alter Bridge are in a dead heat for number 2 on my list

 

Alter Bridge – The Last Hero

 

From here on everything’s tied for 3rd place!

Rob Zombie – The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser.  LANGUAGE!!!!

 

Ben Harper – Call It What It Is

 

Candlebox – Disappearing in Airports

 

In Flames – Battles

 

Third Ion – Biolith

 

Opeth – Sorceress

 

Sum 41 – 13 Voices

 

Anthrax – For All Kings

 

Highly Suspect – The Boy Who Died Wolf LANGUAGE!!!!!!!  The more I listen to this album, the more I like it!

 

The Pretty Reckless – Who You Selling For?

 

The 1975 – I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it

 

NOTHING WRONG WITH THESE ALBUMS, JUST LACKING SOMETHING.

 

Tremonti – Dust

 

The Agonist – Five

 

Chevelle – The North Corridor

 

Green Day – Revolution Radio

 

OLDER ALBUMS, LIVE ALBUMS & EPs

 

Scream – Fumble (Dave Grohl’s group before Nirvana)

 

Oasis – Be Here Now & Definitely Maybe

 

Barenaked Ladies – Live @ Red Rocks

 

Taylor Hawkins – Kota EP

 

Lamb of God – The Duke EP

 

Portal – Blood Red Tape.  Independent group from Alberta, Canada, I think?  They remind me of Tool.

https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/blood-red-tape/id292933756

 

Vinyl Hero – 7 days on a train EP.   Another independent group from somewhere in Canada, I believe?

 

Candlebox – Love Stories & Other Musings

 

It’s not that I don’t like EPs or Live albums.  EPs leave me wanting a full album of at least 10 songs & live albums are pretty much a live album of Greatest Hits.

 

ALBUMS I HAVEN’T PURCHASED YET LISTEN TO ON APPLE MUSIC

 

Diemonds – Never Wanna Die

 

Diemonds – The Bad Pack

 

Metallica – Hardwired to Self-Destruct

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Bruno Mars – 24K Magic

I’d have to agree with the review.  There is nothing I should like about this album.  In the end, I love it & I don’t know why?

 

Boston – Boston

 

The Damned Things – Ironiclast

 

When the Holidays are over & Kim gives me the OK, I’ll purchase these albums.  If Apple goes under my purchased files are mine.  I, personally refuse to “download” streaming music aka Apple’s not taking away my music!  It’s a free country use a streaming site however you like.  Of course I’ll buy these gradually, unless we can make it rain with iTunes gift cards in January……………I doubt it!  Only took Metallica 33 years to release something original that I like & listen too.  Hahahaha!  I have 2 other Christmas albums.  Those aren’t buy now albums.

 

Just because I can!!!!!!!!!!!

 

My questions for anyone reading this.  What were your preferred album(s) this year?  Also, how would you classify Alter Bridge?  Are they rock, metal or right on the line between both genres?  I really want to hear from anyone reading this.  I’m not the judge of what’s good or bad.  Maybe you’re not a fan of rock or metal, that’s fine with me, I used to be completely against music with a distorted electric guitar involved, so please let me know?

I’m very tired this week.  Kim wakes me up when she gets up at 6:00 am to get ready for work.  I fall asleep until she wakes me up at 7:00 am.  This week I either wake up at 9:00 am or 8:00 am, or I just lay in bed wasting the day until 8:00 am or so.  I just feel lazy this week, but I have continued to exercise like a mad man!  It’s taking me a little longer to do my exercises, which I guess is a “good thing”.  Quality over quantity!  Today was even worse.  I slept until 9:00 am, did my squats & crunches, went to the shower, & cleaned up the kitchen.  Once this is done I’ll be sitting on the couch.  Nothing hurts or anything like that.  I just don’t have any “fuel” in the tank left.  Tomorrow I’ll do my pushups & leg lifts.   In the big picture, doing ½ of my exercises for 2 days won’t hurt anyone.

People that know me well, know I’m a metal fan with a strong dislike for Metallica.  However this album sounds pretty good.  I don’t know if I’d listen to it enough to buy it though?  Wait & see I guess.  Friday marks my end of purchasing music until after Christmas.  I have two preorders & then I’m done.  Apple Music until December 26th or 27th.  Metallica & Bruno Mars are the 2 releases I don’t have on preorder for that day.

I spent most of Sunday on the couch watching “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens” for probably the 134th time.  I’ll admit it, I do a little more than dabbling in science fiction.  Is it a problem if I know some of the dialogue already?  I was still a little tender getting off the couch Sunday, & very tender today.  After I finished my exercises today, I decided the rest of this week will be a lot of stretching & very light exercising.

 

NHL has almost become unwatchable for me.  It’s a good thing to see Jaromir Jager still out there doing his thing at 44 years young.

This was the first “Queens of the Stone Age” album I bought.  I had never heard of them before.  I knew Dave Grohl was playing drums on the album & also did a short tour with them.  I bought this, then bought the 2 before it.

I did it!  All of the numbers below are accurate!

My goals for each day are: 1500 crunches, 100 squats, 80 pushups, & 70 leg lifts.

Normal weekly total should be, 7500 crunches, 500 squats, 400 pushups, & 350 leg lifts.

 

This is not meant to be taken as a sob story.  I’m not writing a book?  If you want to, go ahead, you can take what I’ve written & send me the cash from the sales!  Hahahahahaha!

 

Every morning the first thing I do, once I leave our bedroom, is 50 squats. Then I have a coffee, water & my breakfast smoothie.  Rest for 20-30 minutes, then do the rest of my exercise.  Once all of that’s done, I grab another coffee & I come in here to write a blog post.  I usually start another post right after I post one for the day.

I am & was an introvert for quite a while.  Kept my head down & tried not to ruffle any feathers.  Even fronting a band.  I needed a guitar to hide behind.  A guitar was like my security blanket.  Until university, I never felt very comfortable.  Even while I was in university, I never really went out of my way to find friends, that’s not something I do.  If people look & point at me, I’m OK with that.  Dude with an eye patch, I get it, it’s quite rare to see.

I’m good in a small group but a loud group of over 15 people I don’t really know, I keep quiet & listen usually!  Better off to shut up & learn something.  Even writing this blog is somewhat nerve racking.  I can’t make everyone happy all of the time.  Some of these posts are edited 3 or 4 times.  I’ll read what I have & think to myself “This could be taken the wrong way?”  I don’t want to come off as a $%#&^@*&^ ever, I’m not perfect & I’m aware of it.  “I know that there’s a time & a place that I can choose to walk the fine line between self-control & self-abuse…”

 

“Walk off the Earth” are doing the Canadian national anthem!

https://www.wch2016.com/news/walk-off-the-earth-to-perform-o-canada-at-world-cup/c-282225076

 

I’m cleaning our 2 bathrooms, I finish one & I’m head banging to the next one.  No one’s here but Brewster and I but I’ve got this song stuck in my head.  “………….done, done, & I’m onto the next one…”

 

Here’s a review of the new “Opeth” album.

 

“Big Wreck” is mixing their album…………………..on an analog soundboard!  The last 2 “Foo Fighters” albums were recorded on an analog soundboard.  All it really means is that it will sound more like the album if you see them live, & they have to be really good on the recording.

Who’s buried in the mix as a back ground singer on this song?  Myles Kennedy of “Alter Bridge” & “Slash”!

 

Metallica were the musical guest on Jimmy Fallon last night.

So far the 2 songs released from their album, I really like!  I’m not preordering it though.  I’ll wait for the entire release on November 18th.

 

If “The Pretty Reckless” video didn’t work yesterday, here it is now!

http://loudwire.com/the-pretty-reckless-take-me-down-video/

 

As well as grabbing the “Opeth” album & “The Agonist” album last night.  Two songs also came to our iTunes account.  A “Sum 41” song & an “Alter Bridge” song.

I haven’t had a chance to really listen to the “Opeth” album yet.  Before they started recording it or writing it.  They said it would be more of a progressive death metal album.  The previous 3 albums were quite mellow, more of a progressive radio friendly rock vibe.  The little bit that I’ve heard of their new album seems like more of the same, I still like it, hard core fans might think differently though?

 

“The 1975” may have new material for 2017?  That would be AWESOME!

http://www.nme.com/news/the-1975/96787?utm_campaign=nme-30-sep-30-09-2016&utm_medium=email&utm_source=newsletter

 

The new “The Pretty Reckless” album sounds pretty good to me!  This is the 3rd song they have released from the album which will be released on October, 21st.

 

“Kings of Leon” new song.  I’ve never been a fan of theirs.  I did like their song “Radioactive” though

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/hear-kings-of-leons-led-zeppelin-esque-single-around-the-world-w442796

 

I like getting all of this music, the downside is that there is so much all at once!  I prefer to listen to an album & really get into it & play it multiple times.

 

Time to see how the Blue Jays will lose another game?  Last regular season game in Boston on Sunday.

 

Just because I can!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Exercise total; 280 leg lifts & 3850 crunches, 40 push ups

First week, 4 day week, of exercise after 2 weeks with a very sore back. Lots of stretching still. I’m still not quite at my desired total. I haven’t done a squat or push up yet, squats really work my back muscles also. I’m still shooting for my regular daily total.

80 squats, 1500 crunches, 140 leg lifts & 60 push ups everyday, 5 days a week. I’ll probably get there next week.

I forgot one cover song.

This is just sad to have this happening all over the world.

I think anyone who’s watched “Stranger Things” on Netflix would like a second season to at least fill in the plot holes & questions that came with the end of the 8 episode series

That’s pricy, but I guess it’s a box set, book, CD, & blu-ray. I’ll see if it’s in our budget, I doubt it though. Maybe I could get the album & show from iTunes?

Could be a good movie from the looks of it?
