I fell asleep to “Matthew Good Band” the album “Beautiful Midnight”

I exercised to “Econoline Crush” the album “The Devil You Know”


Weekly exercise total; 800 pushups, 560 leg lifts, 400 crunches, 300 squats, 240 tricep pushups, & 190 back flexes.  All of that in a 4 day week.

Next week will be a normal 5 day week.  Regular Sunday, Wednesday, & Friday post.


Tuesday.  Some days my stupidity is at 11/10.  “Hey, I just had 4 days off!  Let’s do all of the exercise at the goal limit” idiot.  I’m very tired this Tuesday morning after everything.

More of my T-Shirts are fitting with all of this exercise during the week.  I don’t know why, but I’ve felt tired all week.  Before my exercise & after my exercise.  Even did something different one day as a plumber was checking the en suite showers on the 2nd & 3rd floors.  I had breakfast & tended to the dishwasher first & then did my exercise.  They came to our suite first I believe.  I just didn’t want to be on the floor exercising when they came.

All of this exercise & eating healthy has made a difference but you can’t really see a difference in my muscles.  I’ve lost weight but even Kim says there’s very little definition shows in my muscles.  I’d have to agree with that.

It seems the older I get, the more bumps, cuts, & scabs I get.  “When did I do that?”  The answer never shows up & I just carry on as usual.



Stop laughing.  Summer of 1997 I bought a 3 disc box set of theirs.  We were living at my Grandparents place while dad & friends were rebuilding everything in our basement at home.

I bought the box set & listened to it constantly at a low volume in “my” temporary room as I fell asleep.  I can’t remember who mentioned them to me?  Might have been our choir conductor?  This was my last year of baseball.  I was playing on 2 teams & blew out my arm, making multiple throws from 3B to 1B (roughly 127 feet).

The Chamber Choir went to Newfoundland that summer for the exact same dates that my city league team was scheduled to play a tournament in Montana.  I already knew about the Newfoundland trip & told my coach at the first practice about the Newfoundland trip when he told us about the tournament.  He instantly got mad & had a temper tantrum.  “CANCEL IT NOW” he yelled at me.  I told him I couldn’t & that I had been fundraising & wouldn’t back out of this commitment I already had.  The baseball season went on.  I’d check the lineup & every day it was me, playing third base, & batting 9th, I was a terrible hitter.  The team went to Montana & I went to Newfoundland.  The first game back from the tournament I was benched!  The nastiest player on the team took over third base.  So I quit right there after the game & a HUGE argument with my head coach.  We didn’t see eye to eye on his decision to bench me or my decision to go with the choir.  I went back to my Grandparents house & relaxed to “Simon & Garfunkel”…..

Anybody watching “Riverdale”?  Archie comic characters, made into a murder mystery live action TV show.  Kim & I are hooked on this show.  Betty’s last name is Cooper, guess what her mother’s first name is?  Alice!  I just laugh & go “Look it’s Alice Cooper Hahahahahahahaha!”

It’s a Netflix original, but it’s on the CW channel before it’s available on Netflix.

Look at that!  “Theory of a Deadman” can do something completely different than “Nickelback”, & do it well.  A cover of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game”.  If he’s not making music Chris Isaak should make a comeback.  Not the comeback below though.


In Flames cover of “Wicked Game”

Not this “Comeback”


Get off of your high horse!  Some stuff on www.youtube.com should be censored & it is.  It’s SO important that a shooting at their office is needed?  REALLY?


Well that’s as dumb as __________________!  Look at that I censored myself.


It’s happened before, it will happen again!


Terrible video too.  More than a little sexist…………….BY FAR.

Clean version.  Other version contained a parade of naked women.


Robert Plant on Greta Van Fleet


I was doing my exercise yesterday to Billy Joel.  Took me back to last year or the year before 3 or 4 of us driving to Saskatoon to see “Trivium” singing Billy Joel on the way there!  It also reminded me of this from earlier this week…


Could anyone shed some light on TONS of people having an issue with “Justice League”?  I watched it for the 2nd time this week & I still like it.  Maybe the next movie (Aquaman from what I hear) will be written & directed by Marvel studios?  Is it that bad, or are people just looking for something to complain about”?  This ruined the movie for them?  I’ve never seen it!


Tremonti “A Dying Machine” is out for preorder today & you get this song from it.  Full album will be released June 8th.


The more you share this, the more readers I get.  No, I’m not profiting from this in any way.  I can’t tell who’s reading this but thank you!

I really would like this to be conversation between myself & the readers. I’m telling you my story of the music I like, now you tell me what you’re into? I’m not about to judge anyone on their listening choices, that would be weird coming from a music fan. Please, let’s make this interactive, in a good way? If I haven’t checked it out or mentioned it on here, teach me please?

I’m going to watch “Blue Jays in 0:30 minutes”. I MUCH prefer watching a 3 hour pitching dual where the score is 1 or 2-0. For me it has to be really close & low scoring or a total blow-out for one team! They lost……………………..again.

iTunes Match, “….thanks, that was fun….” now were leaving you in the dust like MANY others are! Home Sharing for us now!

Halestorm article/interview


“Slash can say whatever he wants about Axl Rose”. Sure he was in arguably one of the biggest bands around at the time.


If you like Nickleback there’s a VERY GOOD chance you’ll enjoy “Theory of a Deadman”, if you haven’t heard them.


Worst to first Tool albums. My favourite song without a pile of language below


Watch these soon they’ll likely be taken off of youtube very soon?

Kurt Cobain ‘Montage of Heck’ & “Soaked in Bleach’ both on youtube, but ‘Montage of Heck’ will not let me embed the link to share it.

Pentatonix documentary ‘On My Way Home’ on www.youtube.com

I’m not sharing those links since they could be taken down from youtube soon? I watched ‘Montage of Heck’ yesterday & just found it weird.

Chevy Chase appearance on Jimmy Fallon


U2 enlist the help of The Roots & Jimmy Fallon at Madison Square Gardens


“Glorious Sons” not a metal group or heavy in anyway, just a really good rock band I have never listened to, I’ve heard the name in passing though. They have stuff on iTunes. Show on October 15th. Tickets on sale tomorrow July 24th. For those in Regina.

Miranda Lambert duet days after announcing divorce from Blake Shelton


Halestorm with Corey Taylor (Slipknot/Stone Sour) preforming “Hunger Strike” live! I REALLY like this song

Remember “Lamb of God” fans it coming tomorrow or late tonight, depending on where you live?


Tremonti & Trivium in Toronto only as far as a Canadian tour date goes?! You know since we all live in Ontario or B.C…………………………….NOT!!!!!

Avenged Sevenfold part ways with drummer. I have 6? of their albums & never really bother to listen to them.


20 “best” songs by Dolly Parton


I like “The Beastie Boys” but all day could easily get boring?


Today’s Rock It Out Blog


If “Sum-41” can do something in the style of the “Screaming Bloody Murder” album, I’m all for Brownsound’s come back!!!


Not much going on in the music side of things today. Our 12.5lbs dog is driving me crazy today. It’s been cloudy all day, it’s raining & he heard thunder earlier. In other words he’s been panting & shaking like a leaf for most of the day. Kim deals with him throughout the night, then I deal with him all day. He’s been this way for quite a few weeks now? I think he’s getting old fast. He mostly lays at the door, scratching it & whining.

We had a noise complaint about him early on last year when we both went out one day & forgot to leave the TV on for Brewster. Since then we haven’t left him alone. We take him to my parents house, Mitch & Rachel’s place, or Sherry & James’ house. We pretty much have to get a sitter for our dog? He seems to be getting worse with age, he wasn’t like this 3 weeks ago? He’s on anxiety pills now, they aren’t helping & he’s been on them long enough to have them in his system.

Songs I like. “Megadeth”
