I fell asleep to “Tool” the album “10,000 Days”

No exercise music today.  I forgot to put the remote on the charger last night.  I exercised in “The Sound of Silence”

 

Sunday was the last day of the regular season for baseball & many teams including the Blue Jays.  On Monday we woke up to a skiff of snow.  Seemed to be fitting, I guess.  This also marks the day I get to see Kim, for the first time since March 28th or so.  Game ended, I turned to Kim & said “Hi, it’s been a while.  I’m Chris.  Wanna hangout until the end of March 2019?”  Then I cried a little.  It felt a bit like Christmas & New Year’s Eve were over.  Hahahahahahahahaha!

I had to stay home yesterday (like I had plans anyway) to let some people in to change our pins in the door hinges.  Our front door now closes on its own.  I think it was changed for fire regulations, but I’m not sure?

Snowed here yesterday.  HUGE snowflakes.  Everything was white for about 2 hours, then it melted.  Still have to test the wheelchair in the snow.

Snow is back today.  Outside looks like we may have a blizzard on our hands?  The snow is coming down hard & it’s sideways!

Tool’s album AEnima turned 30 on October 1st.

I find it funny that I’ll say “Alter Bridge” or “Halestorm” only to be met with the reaction “Who?”  I’d much rather hear “No” than “Who?”  Alter Bridge released their first album, One Day Remains, in 2004.  Halestorm released their first self-titled album in 2006.  Alter Bridge was all over the radio at the time.  I’ll admit that Halestorm is female fronted rock band that I only recently, 2013 or 2014, discovered.

 

THE PRETTY RECKLESS

3 albums so far in their career.  The singer was initially actress her name is Taylor Momsen.  She is probably known best for her role, as a child, as Cindy Lou Who in Jim Carrey’s adaptation of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”.  She continued acting, writing & I think modelling until 2012 when she went into music instead.  As I said they have 3 albums out & at the moment they’re either writing or taking some time off.

Music from this weekend!  “Queens of the Stone Age”, “Metallica”, “Billy Joel”

 

Friday Kim got home from work & we went out for supper.  Brewster stayed at Sherry & James’ house.  They do that a LOT for us.  Brewster freaks out if he’s left alone, that doesn’t go over well with other condo owners here.  We went to Moxie’s.  I’m a BIG fan of their veggie Portobello mushroom burger!

Stayed in on Saturday.  Kim got some groceries.  We pretty much were lazy on the couch other than her getting groceries & making supper.  Then Netflix for the evening, into the 5th & final season of “The Fosters”.  I stayed up to watch “Blue Jays in :30”

Today there is a Saskatchewan Roughrider game on TV in Montreal & the final Blue Jays game of the season.  I’ll be parked on the couch while finding time to prepare some food for the week ahead & make a pitcher of vegetable juice also.  Kim was out taking family photos for friends of ours.

 

I really don’t like what stereotypical millennials are doing to EVERYTHING!  There are MANY exceptions to this though!  Millennials are said to be born after 1982, 1984, or 2000.  I was born in January 1980.  Maybe Trump as President has more to do with it?

 

Not many albums & not how I’d rank the Tool albums!

THE BEACHES

Brand new to me when I bought the album.  I heard, months ago that they played the Rogers Center/Skydome opening for Foo Fighters.  Dave Grohl actually calls a band & asks them “Hey, would you like to do a show or tour with us?”  I’d freak out if I could still play music & get a call from Dave Grohl.  No audition that I know of, he just hears the album & decides if he likes it or not.  New band on the rise, but only played the one show with Foo Fighters & then halftime shows at CFL stadiums in Ontario, I think.  One album called “Late Show” & I added the single “Give it up” to the album.  This is more like garage/indie rock, not my usual taste in music but I like this album each time I hear it & think to myself “I need to listen to this album more often”!

I fell asleep to “Halestorm” the new album “Vicious”

I exercised to “Big Wreck” the album “The Pleasure & the Greed”

 

Let me explain this before you judge me.  When I make a friend, it’s always a strong bond.  I have many friends, some in the city, some in other provinces of Canada, & some in other countries.  My friends are nothing short of AWESOME!

I was in the hospital for almost exactly 4 ½ years.  Many people came to visit me & that was great!  I went into the hospital having just turned 28 at the end of January 2008.

I missed out on a TON of stuff, as I expected.  The world doesn’t come to a grinding halt for anyone & it shouldn’t.  It will only slow down briefly, to mourn.

My friends did exactly what I would have wanted them to do!  Slow down for a bit, & carry on with their lives.

I was at a BBQ hosted by some friends, since a mutual friend, his wife & toddler were in town.  I realized that I didn’t know many people there & the people I did know have completely different lives now, with marriage & kids now.  I don’t blame any of them for doing what they wanted to do with their lives.  I’m actually very impressed by all of them being great parents, something I’m not likely to do.  I like kids, they’re fun!

I realized that I’m not 28 anymore.  My friends have kids & other circles of friends, & that’s a very good thing!  Priorities shifted once they had their own families to care for, & that’s where their priorities should be.

I guess what I’m trying to say is I was in a group of great people, & I clammed up!  I’ve also developed anxiety.  I was worrying last Friday about being in a large group.  How did this happen, I don’t know?  If I’m in a group of more than 10 people, I feel like the outcast.  It’s all in my head, I know that.  It’s tough for me to meet new people, since I just assume they see an iPatch & a wheelchair, other than what’s inside the wheelchair & under the iPatch.

This is stuff I need to get over, nobody else needs to change anything!

Apple Music vs. Spotify.  For me, same thing, different pile.

Tool say they’re releasing an album next year.  I’ve heard this story for the last 3 years.  I’ll believe it when I have it.  This will be there follow up to “10,000 Days” released in 2006.  Roughly 12 years later, I’m expecting an INCREDIBLE album.

I’m a HUGE fan of Tool.  Tool is NOT a band that fits into a specific box.  Rock, metal, pop, tribal, rhythmic, etc.  They kind of cover it all, I prefer to call them a progressive band.  Not a specific type of music, just music

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

 

COLLECTIVE SOUL

I rarely listen to this group anymore.  For me, they come off as far too polished to be a rock band.  Everything on their albums are perfect & in sync.  When I listen to them I always wonder how much work does the producer & sound engineer have to do, or is that just how they are?  I saw them live a few years ago.  It was very much the same as listening to one of their recordings.  They’re either really good musicians or really good at faking it live.  I have 6 albums purchased on CD, nothing from iTunes.  I own 6 of 10 studio albums, the 10 albums do not include their Greatest Hits or the 2 live albums on iTunes.  This is the rock band my mother didn’t approve of when I was a young teen, but bought tickets for the family to see them at The Casino, because she wanted to see them.  I did listen to them recently, I really have nothing against their music, & they’re a band I’ve kind of grown out of.

 

1993    HINTS, ALLEGATIONS, & THINGS LEFT UNSAID

 

1995     COLLECTIVE SOUL   (Yes I played 3 songs from this album with my first band.)  This album does give me a nostalgic feeling, hearing these songs.

 

1997    DISCIPLINED BREAKDOWN

 

 

1999   DOSAGE

 

2000   BLENDER

 

2004    YOUTH

WEEKLY EXERCISE TOTAL/FALL OUT BOY

No such thing as a stupid question!  Ask me & I’ll try to break it down for you!

New & lighter wheelchair should be here tomorrow (Friday) or Tuesday at the latest.  Current chair weighs 40 pounds, new chair will be 12 pounds or 8 with the wheels popped off.

4 day weekly total; 400 pushups, 240 tricep pushups, 100 back flexes, 400 leg lifts, 200 crunches, 240 squats.

I fell asleep to “Tool” the album “Lateralus”

I exercised to “Doctor” the only album “High is as High Gets” no videos or songs on the internet or iTunes.  I bought the CD the day it came out, WAY back when!  It’s the group the singer of “The Watchmen” did after “The Watchmen” broke up.  It’s been out of print for years.

 

Managed to do my pushups with my arms in.  I did most of them properly as per this video.  I need to go lower & focus on my breathing.  No I’m not near even contemplating advanced pushups.  Keeping your elbows in makes it much more difficult.

Tuesday this week that I got up at 8:00 am, had breakfast, exercised, & then sat on the couch watching TV for far too long.  I didn’t shower until 12:30 pm or so.  I was “exhausted”!

 

I’ve googled & called Apple regarding this issue many times & I think I know what iTunes might be doing by the end of March?  You’ll have the normal streaming subscription fee.  You will still be able to stream music.  If you want to buy music, you’ll have that option as well, I think?  Any purchased music will cost a bit more since you’re also paying the streaming fee to use the store.  Kind of like Costco.  A fee to get in the store to purchase stuff from the store.

Neither streaming or purchasing will be eliminated, purchasing will cost more.  I don’t know if the price of a download will be cheaper?  This means hopefully the artists will get more money with a purchase?

Again, I’m not entirely clear on this, but that’s what I assume I read from the link I read.  CDs will disappear fast I believe.  This isn’t the exact link, but it did come from www.appleinsider.com.

People are starting to not like “Opeth” because they’ve been making less death metal & more stuff like this.  I’m not one of those people, I may not listen to them often, that doesn’t mean anything though.

 

I’ve watched “Deadpool 2” 3 times since we bought it & saw it once in the theater!

EXTREME LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

FALL OUT BOY

I know nothing about the background regarding this band.  I have always considered them a guitar based pop band, never a rock band.  I believe the bass player writes most of the lyrics if not all of them.  The only thing I can tell you for certain is that the drummer & second guitar player are in another group with Scott Ian of “Anthrax”.  The band is called “The Damned Things” with 2 other musicians.

I missed the first release by Fall Out Boy, I don’t have much desire to get it either.  I don’t listen to Fall Out Boy very often, but I do like them.

 

2005 One album prior to this.  FROM UNDER THE CORK TREE

 

2007    INFINITY ON HIGH

 

2013    SAVE ROCK & ROLL

 

2015   AMERICAN BEAUTY/AMERICAN PSYCHO

 

2018     M A N I A

 

I did buy this single & attached it to one of the albums or I’d never listen to it.

I have issues with artists using samples of another artist’s song.  Fall Out Boy uses quite a bit of sampling in their music, I don’t understand why any musician does this.  To me it comes off as “Well this fits, so I guess we don’t need to record it?  ______ has done it for us, & it’s better than what I came up with?!”

I don’t have their first album & there’s another one in the middle I checked out & don’t need.

5 day weekly total; 600 pushups, 360 tricep pushups, 150 back flexes, 400 leg lifts, 200 crunches, 240 squats.  Some walking also.

I fell asleep to “In Flames” the album “Colony”

I exercised to “Lynyrd Skynyrd” a double album of their Greatest Hits

 

BOOOOO!  No new wheelchair until August 28th!  BOOOOOO!

I now know what my problem has been all week.  Monday & Tuesday were the worst days of the week.  It got better as the week progressed.  Sunday night & Monday night I didn’t sleep well at all.  I actually had a nap on Wednesday afternoon, I fell asleep very quickly.  I’m usually wide awake for an hour when I hit the hay.  I was out cold on Wednesday afternoon, & at bedtime the last few nights.  Today I felt more like myself.  “Exhausted” from my workout, but it’s the weekend!

I would love to take a break but I really don’t know how to relax, so a break won’t help in that respect, & a break means more difficult work to get to where I am physically.

Many people have no clue what I can or can’t do.  Fair enough, I surprise myself sometimes regarding what I can or can’t do.  If I can’t do something on my own, I’ll ask for help & approach it a different way on my own next time, if I can’t do it on my own I’ll ask for help again, etc.  After multiple attempts I’ll decide if I need help each time or if I can do it on my own.

 

Blu-ray, DVD, & possibly 4K on September 7th!

REALLY!  I wish I was ½ that good!

 

Keep Calm & wait patiently new Tool is not finished yet.  It’s been 12 years, we can all wait some more.

I googled apple iTunes regarding the elimination of downloads from the iTunes store & found nothing solid that it will continue to exist or be phased out early next year.  Every link denounced the previous link.  So, I’m not sure what’s true & what’s not?  There are so many streaming sites out there, you’d think Apple would keep a download site open?  I don’t know about the cost of offering both streaming & downloading.  I personally would prefer to own my music through downloading it rather than streaming it.  Call me any name you like, I’ll cross that bridge if it happens.

“Opeth will release Garden of the Titans: Live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on November 2nd via Moderbolaget Records / Nuclear Blast Entertainment. This historic event was captured for the DVD, Blu-Ray and Vinyl formats during their performance May 11th, 2017 at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver, CO. Both the DVD and Blu-ray formats include CDs containing the audio as well.”

Yep, I’ve struggled with depression for most of my life.  There is no shame if you need to talk to someone, even a complete stranger.  I’m on anti-depressants, no shame in that either.

Unwritten rule in the MLB!  You NEVER throw a fastball, for that matter a 97mph fastball, at a player!  The pitcher got a slap on the wrist with a 6 game suspension.  He’ll miss 1 start as a starting pitcher.  I say “OK, your seasons over!”

If you don’t want to pitch to him, give him an intentional walk or lob a curve ball at him if you’re angry.

 

“Got my ‘geek’ on”

Yes, we bought “Avengers: Infinity War” on Tuesday, & watched it for the first time EVER that night.  Great popcorn movie!  Check your brain at the door & be very entertained!  I did have a few minor issues with it though, well 3 if were keeping track.

The Story Line.

I hope George Lucas got some royalties for a portion of the writing.  I was thinking “Wow, I’ve seen a very similar story line throughout the original ‘Star Wars’ trilogy.”  Father saves his child while the child must fight against father.

 

SCENE STEALING

Did they actually steal an early scene from ‘Batman vs. Superman’?  Near the beginning of the film?  Tony Stark runs into the street to find nothing but mayhem & everyone running for their life.  Same scene almost frame by frame of Bruce Wayne running into mayhem at the beginning of ‘Batman vs. Superman’.

 

VILLAINS

The main villain has an army much like the villain in ‘Justice League’.  The army in “Avengers: Infinity War” looked much like the ones in ‘Stranger Things, season 2’.  Maybe I was thinking too much?  These 3 things stuck out like a sore thumb to me, blatant rip-offs that they didn’t even try to hide.

Those were the only things about the movie that bothered me.  Other than that it was a FANTASTIC movie!  I enjoy both comic book titans, Marvel & DC.

SHORT WEEK, I’LL CATCH YOU ON FRIDAY!!

Music throughout the weekend. “Metallica”, “Halestorm”, “The Beaches”, “Foo Fighters”, “Tool”, & “Tremonti”

 

Left for my family’s cabin Friday after Kim finished work & when we were done packing on Friday, shortly after 7:00 pm.  We ate en route, it’s almost exactly a 1 hour drive.  We haven’t been there the last 2 years, & no, it’s not winterized.  One of my cousins from Manitoba was there with my mom & another couple most of the week.  Short trip, but well worth it! We stayed up Friday with the guys watching “Hot Fuzz”, an instant classic, on Netflix & the girls playing cards.

On Saturday we drove to Chamberlin to ‘Twisted Sisters’ for some always tasty ice cream in the afternoon.  An appetizer for a meal of deep fried tiny fish bits, seasoned & deep fried potato skins, & deep fried turkey.  Thanks to Ray & Karen for the great meal.

We stayed up to play cards & drink, all 7 of us, on Saturday night.  Dad & Ray have been working at remodeling the cabin & have made the washroom easier for me to get into aka more accessible for me.  I believe there are more changes to come, & I’m anxious to see the finished product, so far it’s looking very good!

Drove back home on Sunday, just to get some stuff ready for the week.  Just do some of the stuff for the week ahead.  My body was absolutely craving water & vegetables.

 

I guess the “Into Eternity” release on Friday was only a preorder?  I’ll grab a CD when I see them next time in concert if possible!  They’re from Regina so I’m sure I’ll see them live!

 

Dave Grohl plays all of the instruments on 23 minute song.  Interview with Jimmy Kimmel!

 

HALESTORM

A brother & sister along with two friends.  The group is based in Philadelphia.  They call themselves a metal band, I would call them a hard rock group though.  3 guys & one girl.  The drummer is the singer/guitar player’s younger brother, the two friends are filling the sound on bass & lead guitar.  The brother & sister started the group in school at a talent show.  The 2 of them played & a fellow student asked what their group was called she replied “Halestorm” since their last name is Hale.  They have 4 studio release albums, 1 live album, & 3 EPs of 6 songs each of cover songs.  Their 4th studio release came out on July 27th, 2018.  The first 2 albums I find to be very similar.  I like both although they’re both very similar.  I’ll give you 2 songs from each of the first 3 albums & we’ll see what happens with the latest release…

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

The second I posted Friday’s blog I went to www.youtube.com & there was already a review of the “Halestorm” album “Vicious”.  The album was released at midnight Thursday night.  WOW, I wait before I judge an album, I like to listen to it a few times & digest it.  That review should be a reaction video!

Here is utter ignorance at its best.  You realize they’re not just denying service to the #LGBTQ community!  I assume the rest of us that support the #LGBTQ community would boycott this establishment as well.  From what I know there is no location in Regina.  If I were to pass by one on a trip I might go in, buy a small meal, finish it, thank them & as I’m on my way out I’d shout “I’M GOING TO SPEAK WITH YOUR MANAGEMENT!  YOU JUST SERVED A GAY PERSON!”  Or I’ll just pass by & avoid a heart attack.  What if the employees have no gaydar?

“No, they sound too much like Led Zeppelin” – internet.  OK, if you don’t like Led Zeppelin that’s fine.  If you do like Led Zeppelin, why are you complaining?  Robert Plant, singer of Led Zeppelin, thinks they’re great.  If he doesn’t have a problem with them, why do Led Zeppelin fans?

I love Big Wreck but this sounds much like a specific Led Zeppelin song, other than a general sound.  Ian Thornley even admits that this song was heavily influenced by Led Zeppelin.

Friday was quite/tame here.  We stayed up too late, Kim hit the hay at midnight, while I stayed up to watch ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’.  Kim was grabbing some groceries & taking photos during most of the Blue Jay game, so I watched that since she really doesn’t care for baseball.

Saturday I watched more shark week & went to the Rider game that night.  Kim & Brewster were out & about while I was at the game.

Dear Saskatchewan Roughriders,

Sincerely,

Me.

 

Today is get ready for the week ahead.  Make a vegetable juice, hard boil some eggs, bake some fish, & try to be positive about cardio for 5 straight days as well as other possible workouts.  Kim will get a few groceries, & finish up the little bit of laundry left to do, then a nice long weekend to look forward to!

 

GREAT BIG SEA

4 guys from Newfoundland, Canada.  I think I saw them twice in Regina at ‘The Conexus Arts Center’.  I only own their first 2 albums, on CD.  I bought them in my teen years, the ‘90s.  One in 1996 & the other in 1997.  They released 10 studio albums & I believe band member, Alan Doyle, is currently a solo artist?  They’re known for being from Newfoundland & doing some traditional Newfoundland music.  I grew out of them when I discovered ‘grunge’ about 8-10 years after it exploded.

I must say that on the odd occasion that I do listen to them I like it.  It’s something completely different than my usual rock & metal music.

 

1996   UP

 

1997   PLAY

When these were released, I was still cautiously dipping my toe into heavier music.  I know I wasn’t into metal at the time.
