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

Friday evening we stayed in & rented “The Shallows” from iTunes.  I thought & Kim thought it would be awesome!  I guess we both had really high expectations for, here’s a quick rundown of the film.

Jaws+127 Hours+Castaway-Sharkweek=The Shallows

In the first 15 minutes she broke ALL of the rules when swimming in the ocean.  She played the role of a surfer from Texas, who apparently has never watched any of the episodes during “Shark week” on the discovery channel.  I’m just assuming her family doesn’t have the discovery channel or Netflix?  1.  Don’t swim alone.  2.  Tell others where you’re going.  3.  Don’t bleed in the water.  4.  Don’t swim during the evening.  5.  Don’t try to survive on top of a whale carcass that’s floating & has been half eaten

Most of the dialogue in the trailer must’ve hit the editing room floor?

 

Saturday was Kim’s birthday.  I felt guilty, I was a bad husband.  Went to a Saskatchewan Roughrider game.  Dad & I were soaked, my feet got cold & wet from all of the rain.  We left at half time.  Our rain gear didn’t really help much!  I had to change EVERYTHING & put a towel on my wheelchair.  I haven’t left a game that early since the “Labour Day Classic” in 2008.  Andy Fantuz brought me an autographed jersey in the hospital & 2 tickets to the game.  It was windy, cold, & raining.  So we left at half time.

Saturday night I saw “Jay & Silent Bob get old” at the casino with Corey.  In my defense, we bought the tickets months ago & it was on a different date.  They changed the date & it happened to land on Kim’s birthday?  It was HILARIOUS!  Quite offensive if you don’t like Kevin Smith movies.  He just finished directing an episode of “The Flash” & is part way through directing an episode of “Supergirl” in Vancouver.  In the spring he’ll be filming his own movie “Moose Jaws” in Moose Jaw.  He was here since he was scouting locations to film in Moose Jaw.

Sunday we went out for brunch, mom, dad, Mitch, Rachel, Kim, me, & Grandma  & Grandpa.  Quite a few birthdays fall in a 3 week span, better off doing them all at once!

Now I have to get to some laundry!  YAY……………………..said no one ever.

If you’re following the blog on my personal Facebook page, could you please follow it on the link above? Just for me to keep track of subscribers.

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?

I don’t follow politics……….EVER! I was watching CBC, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, the National news. They were reporting on Donald Trump’s Republican Convention, I changed the channel to watch that instead. I haven’t watched any of the debates for more than 5 minutes. I watched the majority of this one though. I couldn’t stop laughing! I was even lol! My goodness he’s entertaining & scary at the same time. The entire speech was like watching a terrorist threaten another terrorist. I honestly couldn’t stop laughing! I watched it until the end & realized a couple of things. A) I should have been watching the campaign from the start just for the entertainment value! B) If he wins, it’ll be scary & the USA will be a gated community. Nobody’s coming from the Southern Boarder, the East Coast, China or Russia aren’t coming from the West Coast, & us Canadians will build a wall on our Southern Boarder & send the bill to the USA.

Friday was more of me trying to be comfortable with a screwed up back. I didn’t go to the football game. I don’t think it would have done any good sitting on a wooden bench for that amount of time. We babysat our friends kid, who politely told me where to go & how to get there! Kim was painting with her. Kim was painting a person flying a kite. I said we should blow to make some wind for “auntie” Kim, man was I wrong. “UNCLE CHRIS WE DON’T BLOW WIND, WE PAINT IT!!!” aka she told me in the most polite way where to go & how to get there, finger pointing & all.

So at the end of the day, I slept on the couch again, while Kim slept in our bed with someone else, a 2 ½ year old and I’m not sure if I’ll be invited to her 3rd birthday party.

Saturday was my aunts memorial in Regina. The family left the chapel to “Spirit in the Sky” I had finished my crying a week ago, I was OK. My mother did the eulogy at the service for her older sister, she of course choked up, then I choked up a bit too. The entire ceremony actually felt like a celebration. I’ve never felt that at a memorial/funeral? My aunt was really cool & fun to be around, & that’s exactly what I’ll remember about her!

Back to my parents place for a very excessive amount of food and whatever you brought for alcohol. I left with a food baby……and 1 beer……………….a 2 liter bottle of beer. It’s pretty rare to see your mother, uncle & cousins do a shot of tequila at the front of a chapel during a memorial, but I know that’s what my aunt would have wanted!

Now it’s Sunday & I have baseball to watch. Yes my back I still sore. I’ll finish this later.

I’d like to know if Jordan Cook aka Reignwolf will ever release a full album? I don’t buy singles unless there are 10 or more to make an album.

Songs for a campaign. Instead of using a song by famous musicians without their approval. Maybe politicians should use songs from the public domain? Nursery rhymes, happy birthday, the National Anthem, etc.

All of my music info came from; first my parents, then radio, then Much Music, always from like minded friends, then I got into metal a little over a decade ago, & now it’s all from facebook. I rarely listen to the radio, for a few reasons. I flip on the rock radio station & I either own it or don’t like it. That & isn’t FM radio supposed to play/advertise a new song or album? I don’t need to hear “Tom Sawyer” by Rush from the 1970s for the 4th time today ( I wish I was joking but somebody at the station must REALLY like that song)

I’ll be sitting in our vehicle somewhere Kim has to run in, & I’ll flip through 3 FM stations & usually turn it off after a total of 10 seconds. If I find something I like, it’s usually on the soft rock station or Jack FM where they truly do play everything. I probably own it, but haven’t listened to it in a while & it urges me to listen to an album when I get home!

All I can tell you is that Paramore’s Facebook page is very active with studio photos!!!!!!

Ben Affleck knew you hated him being cast as Batman. The movie exceeded my expectations! I loved the Christian Bale Batman trilogy! I’d say this is darker and easily lives up to the hype! Out on iTunes for purchase June 28th. Available in store on DVD or Blu-ray in July.

I at my parents place from the afternoon to the time Kim finished work. Then we had supper & came home shorty after that.

I wrote all of this but the stuff I listened to at the top of this post. It’s now 12:30pm. I’m becoming a fantastic procrastinator! Not a good thing at all. I had lunch after my exercises & listened to the most recent release from “Lacuna Coil” the album “Delirium”.

OK, he’s dead now. What is done is done. Nobody can change that. It was wrong & the victims will be left to deal with it unfortunately. Let him R.I.P.
