I fell asleep to “Radiohead” the album “OK Computer” followed by “Lamb of God” the album “Sacrament”

Don’t feel as though you need to open every link.

I hope you all have fun tonight & get home safe!  No drinks for me.  I’m on some powerful muscle relaxants for my annoying nerve.  A few days after I was in the WRC they put on a “happy hour” for the residents.  I went to it.  I’m on multiple pills 3 times a day & I’m not supposed to drink then they turn around & have one of the nurse’s hand out 2 free drinks to anyone?  Holy mixed messages Batman? I don’t remember if I was able to drink anything at the time.  I couldn’t drink anything for quite a while.  My water & food came through IV for a few years.  My IV was full of a liquid called TPN.  I think it was 2010 that I was able to drink through a straw.  Even beer.  You don’t see that “every day”.

Yeah, I saw my chiropractor yesterday.  My dad took me.  I left here before 2:00 pm, then stayed at my parents’ house until after supper.  Kim had a hair appointment & wasn’t going to be home until 8:00pm or so.  Mom sent home some supper for her.

The chiropractor said it moved really well yesterday, & first did a lot of work on my ribs that had moved.  It feels REALLY good now.  He told me to gradually work into a not so demanding exercise & to keep up with my stretches.  So I did today.  Stretches, 100 crunches & 20 pushups.  As far as the leg exercises go, I plan to do them once everything feels 100% better.  Better safe than sorry.

My routine at the moment is slightly wonky, with my nerve being stubborn.  I get up & get ready at 7:00am.  By the time I do that, & pour a cup of coffee it’s near 7:30.  I watch 2 of the 3 late night talk shows I record, then CNN…………….& I laugh about not having a leader who thinks he can do whatever he wants.  I think I see Sean Spicer flapping his lips, trying to spin a quote from Trump, more often than I see Kim?  I can just imagine how he feels when his alarm goes off.  “Ah, what am I gonna have to spin today.  Wait I’ll check twitter”

The “Radiohead” album “OK Computer” is & always has been considered one of the most important albums of all time.  The really cool thing was they wrote it while on tour for the album “The Bends” in the late 1990s & Foo Fighters were opening for them.  Foo Fighters would do a 10:00 minute sound check, then Radiohead would do a 2 hour sound check arguing about how to arrange the songs.  Go to 15:12 in the video to hear FF drummer Taylor Hawkins talk about opening for Supergrass & Radiohead way back when.

LANGUAGE^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, I have Supergrass’ greatest hits album, on CD.

Expected/anticipated hard rock & metal releases for 2017.  A lot of I don’t know, I don’t really care, I don’t think so, a few I can’t wait, & if there’s a new A Perfect Circle being released, we can wait even longer for the next Tool release.  Maynard probably won’t sing on 2 different albums then he’s supposed to tour with A Perfect Circle.  All of this while maintaining a vineyard?

P.S. Sorry, yesterday’s post was brief.  Facebook was eerily quiet & I didn’t have much to say.

People don’t like to hear anything blunt.  So what do I do?  Sugar coat everything in rainbows, sunshine, & flowers, or get right to the root of the issue at hand & not waste anyone’s time?

At some point someone has to address the Elephant in the room & it’s usually me.  If that makes people feel uncomfortable, great!  It also starts a conversation!

“I will be Albatross for…” as long as needed.  I’m not an idiot, nobody has called me that other than me.  If you want anyone to take the roll of an idiot, give it to me or better yet I’ll just take it.

How was my weekend?  Forgettable!  I did however get to spend time with Kim, go to a football game with my father have supper with Kim & my parents!  That was the positive part of the weekend.  The rest of it we can forget.  I guess I crossed that fine line of being blunt or rude?

I took all of my anger & frustration out in my exercise.  It’s Monday, a new day!  Time to wipe the slate clean & carry on.

 

The Agonist share it again…

 

Good grief!  Now it’s guns & machetes

Kim was running a bit late this morning so while she got ready to leave @ 7:00 am, I came out of our room @ 6:30 & got through 1/2 of my exercise. I get up & just get it out of the way.

I guess I should do a more in depth weekend update? Kim’s parents were here, I always like seeing them. They’re FANTASTIC people, that raised 3 great kids. Friday evening we ordered supper from “East Side Mario’s” & just watched some TV. Saturday everyone went shopping, I’m not big on shopping, I stayed home. Later on in the afternoon we went to Kim’s older sister’s place (Sherry & James’ place to hang out & visit. Sherry fired up the BBQ & made burgers for us all! Sunday was our day to do some cleaning & other stuff so Kim could be ready for the week. I showered, Kim buzzed my head as usual, so that I look like “Powder”. I cleaned what I could & tried to go as quickly as I could to watch a movie at my parents place in the home theater room in the basement. We watched “Deadpool” not “Powder”

Deadpool is an R rated action/comedy movie & definitely not for kids!

OK, that baseball game yesterday was laughable 13-3 for the visiting Tampa Bay Rays? Now I know what other teams fan base felt like against the Toronto Blue Jays in August & September last year. Good thing they had those fights with Texas on Sunday, it really made the team better & the millionaires will get their suspensions today, that will really help matters. Bautista & Encarnacion’s contracts are finished with the Jays at the end of the season. At this point, I don’t think I’d offer either of them a contract. Let someone else pick up the dead weight. Aren’t most sports a business of “What have you done for me lately?”? Bautista & Encarnacion haven’t done much of anything this year so far. The dollar amount for their contracts seems to be getting much smaller with each game.

^^I hope they all feel better now after they lost that game? A broken bone will heal, a suspension/fine will pass a WIN is forever.

Now it’s wait & see who’s suspended & how many people are allowed to be on the field. Each team has a 25 man roster. I counted about 4 people who will likely be suspended & fined.

Their underrated as a band because nobody in North America has a clue as to who they are. Musically, I need to move to Europe where most people enjoy the stuff I like & where some of my favourite bands go on tour.
