Do you have a question about stage 4 brain cancer?  Ask if you do!

I fell asleep to “Nothing but Thieves” the album “Broken Machine”

Like I said we didn’t do much on Friday evening.  At the age of 38 that’s pretty common for us.  We sat on the couch & rented “Lady Bird” from iTunes.  “Dave Matthews Band” song “Crash Into Me” was in it a few times, forgot how much I enjoy “DMB”.  The movie was OK, might have been better if I hadn’t heard so much buzz about it?

The kids seem to be outplaying the veterans.  2019 & 2020 are the last 2 years of the $20,000,000 a year contract for Troy Tulowitzki.  I’d like to pay out his contract for $30,000,000 next year just to go away.  There’s already 4 younger/cheaper players in the minor league system waiting to take over at Short-Stop.  They play again today on TV, next Saturday, 2 more spring training games in Montreal, then a 4 game series against the New York Yankees in Toronto to open the season.  They’re playing many other games before the regular season starts, these are just the televised games.

Saturday, Kim went grocery shopping since I was watching pre-season baseball.  Instead of groceries, she came back with 4 blu-rays I had asked for to use my birthday money on & order through www.amazon.ca!  We ended up watching “Thor: Ragnarok” easily the best “Thor” movie of the 3 for me.

Watched the movie & we were in bed between 9:30 & 10:00 pm

Got up today watched “Saturday Night Live” & “Tanked”, then off to visit some friends, yes, I was wearing shorts as usual.  Picked up Brewster, grabbed some groceries & Kim’s BBQing steaks for supper!

 

 

https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/parkland-florida-school-shooting-gun-control-debate-nra-washington-w517618  I hope so!

The American government wants to make schools safe.  Florida has already changed it’s gun laws.  That’s great that the kids are changing things in schools.  What happens if you’re at a concert, movie, mall, or anywhere else?  America has had mass shootings at all of these locations.  A shooting could happen anywhere?  I hope what they’ve done in Florida becomes a Federal law?

So they’re having issues with the “Alexa” device from Amazon?  Who saw that coming?  Everyone!  New technology not working properly.  Biggest complaint was that it laughs maniacally at random or just stops responding.

Do we really need a device like this?

What about A.I. robots?

Makes the movie “Weird Science” not look so weird!

Guess what?  Nobody worried about this stuff in the 1980s!

Most fans have nothing but praise for “Alter Bridge’s” second album “Blackbird”.  I’m a big fan of “Alter Bridge” but that album is my least favourite of their 5 studio albums.

I’m still dealing with the same issue from Apple/iTunes, dad said he’d try something different for me (wiring stuff for me).  An issue a lot of people would scoff at but it’s causing me WAY to much stress & frustration, heck it started sometime in October.  I surrender (sort of).  Some albums load the songs, some don’t, & some albums load the songs but they’re out of order.  All of this is very random.  If it doesn’t work over the stereo, it’s fine on my iPod or computer!  It’s weird & my TV freezes when you first use the Apple TV.  4 or 5 months is ridiculous & the guy that was helping me with this at first, no longer calls me & doesn’t return my calls or emails!?

 

Myles Kennedy.

He just released his solo album first solo album.  If you’re expecting it to be a hard rock album, keep looking.  10 songs that are acoustic.  He had an album of hard rock songs & left it for possible “Alter Bridge” albums or something different later.  This guy could sing the old phone books & I’d go to a show of his, Alter Bridge, or his first group “The Mayfield Four”.  I saw “The Mayfield Four” once.  They were in Regina & they opened for “The Watchmen”, & headliner “Big Wreck” in 1999 or 2000.  He also sang inaudible backing vocals on “Big Wreck’s” 2nd album.  His solo album is titled “Year of the Tiger”, his father died in 1974 which was the “Year of the Tiger.  Here’s a bit of his other projects & his solo album…

I fell asleep to “Queens of the Stone Age” their 2002 release “Songs for the Deaf” followed by “Trivium” the album “The Sin & the Sentence”

I exercised to “Bush” the album “Sixteen Stone” way back when they had to call themselves “Bush X” in Canada.  There was a Canadian called Bush, never heard them, my CD says “Bush X” released in 1994

500 crunches, 590 leg lifts, 700 pushups, 245 tricep pushups, 200 back flexes, & 240 squats.  That’s my week of exercising.

I figured out today how to do my exercises & not be completely exhausted after.  50 squats, 50 tricep pushups, 40 back flexes, 100 pushups, 100 crunches, 50 more pushups, & 130 leg lifts.

Thursday I was lacking energy & knew I wouldn’t make my totals after doing my squats.  I did everything just dialed the numbers back a bit.

In reference to Brewster’s teeth, he’ll be fine & it won’t cost nearly as much as I had anticipated.  That’s our kid, our little boy.  Might not make sense to some of you but you’d do the same for your human child I assume.  If there is something Kim or Brewster needs, consider it done, especially after what they’ve done for me!  When Kim looked at his teeth, I didn’t think twice “How soon can it happen?” Was the first thing I said & “What’s it going to cost?”

All of this exercising is almost too much for me.  I’m not stopping though.  The sets/numbers have gone up, which has made it more difficult.  I can do all of them, by the end I’m tired & seriously out of breath.  I roll over on my side or have some water as I try to catch my breath for a few minutes.  After that I roll up my exercise mat & carry on with whatever I can do around the house.  My exercise time is a minimum of 2 hours.  In the evenings, 3 days a week, I do some cardio.  Walking with my walker or riding a recumbent exercise bike.

The cardio I’ll tally it up at the end of the year or possibly in June & then the end of the year.

 

This looks like the year for Marvel to rake in a few billion dollars!

When you see me mention Deadpool, just always assume there will be language involved.

Deadpool 2 is locked & loaded for release on May 18th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

Black Panther is set for release on February 16th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Avengers: Infinity War also hits theaters this summer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Venom hits theaters in October.

Ant man & The Wasp will be in theaters in July

 

Aquaman comes to theaters December 21st!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Han Solo comes to theaters this summer.

 

Other than “Aquaman” & “Han Solo” looks like Marvel wants to get crazy rich this year.  I still have yet to see “Thor Ragnarok” & “The Justice League”.  Looks like I’ll be busy this year, baseball starting shortly, the CFL, these movies, working out, & some TV thrown into the mix.

Paramore, Nothing but Thieves, Fall Out Boy, Pink, & Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds all seem to be getting a LOT of air time from me.

 

I’m sorry, I can’t stop laughing at this.

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

 

This was/is absolutely ridiculous/stupid

This is cute & funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Friday ended with us watching our recorded shows on our DVR.  Saturday I slept in while Kim started cleaning since Brewster & I were still sleeping.  When Kim cleans, it’s always best to stay out of the way.  On top of that she went grocery shopping!  Then we cleared off the DVR & watched the Demi Lovato documentary on www.youtube.com REALLY good, I recommend it, it’s called “Simply Complicated” phenomenal voice too!

Full movie here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWTlL_w8cRA  or below.

 

Sunday I went to my parents’ place to watch the Saskatchewan Roughriders play the Ottawa Redblacks.  Roughriders crossed over to the eastern division & we won!!!!!!!!!!  Next week we play the Toronto Argonauts.  We also watched the Edmonton Eskimos beat the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the western division.  They play the Calgary Stampeders next week.  I cheer for 3 teams the Riders, anyone against Calgary, & anyone playing against B.C.  Yes, that’s how I’m gonna be.

Today is more getting ready for the week, & Kim will go to the gym.

 

 

 

 

MUSIC & POP CULTURE TALK

 

The woman that gave the finger to Trump’s motorcade received 465,000+ job offers after being fired for her actions.

6 HUGE science fiction movies in one year, & a “Despicable Me” movie!!!!!!!

Yes, at the moment I’m all for comic book movies, & I’ve always enjoyed cartoon movies & Star Wars.  These last two have been my favourite movies of all time along with “Deadpool”, which is difficult to find an appropriate trailer of.

The trailer is rated R
