My mind it says yes, but my body says no “What do you mean?”

Yes I referenced Justin Bieber, who I don’t own but it is catchy tune.  I do own a TON of “Walk off the Earth”.

My body is sore & tired.  I did my exercises on Monday.  Woke up Tuesday & knew instantly it wasn’t going to happen.  Maybe tomorrow or Friday, we’ll see?  It’s disappointing, but it’s needed.  It almost feels like I might be catching a cold but I’m not.  I felt like I might be catching one a couple of weeks ago.  After drinking a few liters of water, I was fine.

Writing this & watching TV, blu-rays or just listening to music is how I fill my days.  I do watch/listen to too much CNN though.

 

I had some time this week & watched the “Alter Bridge” blu-ray with the Parallax orchestra.  If possible, switch it to surround on the opening menu.  If you listen/watch it in stereo, you’ll be waiting for the orchestra to start since you can’t really hear them in the stereo mix.  Other than that, I give it an A+!  I’ll review it later, probably next week?

 

Tenacious D have an album coming out on November 2nd, along with an animated www.youtube.com series, featuring songs from the album, beginning on Friday, September 28th.  I’m going to hold off since their last album “Rize of the Fenix” didn’t do much for me.

 

OH, SNAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  They’ve set a high bar with their last album as Lamb of God, can they top “Sturm Und Drang”?  I’m confident they can, even after the cover album under the name of “Burn the Priest”.

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

 

Really?  We need another ‘Grinch’ movie?  November 2nd in theaters.

Fair enough, the Jim Carrey one didn’t do anything for me.  I’ll watch the original on TV & see if this one is decent?

 

JEFF BUCKLEY

He made one REALLY FANTASTIC album.  Story I read was he drowned years ago at the age of 27.  He went swimming in a river he had swam in many times before.  I think his tour manager was with him on the shore?  Apparently a current got him, pushed him far down the river & eventually pulled him under?  That’s the story I heard anyways.  This was in 1997.  According to the autopsy, no drugs or alcohol were found in his system.  His only album “Grace” was released in 1994.  This guy has a phenomenal voice….

I fell asleep to “Dead Sara” the album “Pleasure to Meet You”

I exercised to “David Bowie” a “Greatest Hits” compilation

 

I’ve recently added beets & ginger to my vegetable juice in the morning.  I REALLY like it.  2.5 cups of water, 1 cup of orange juice, little tomatoes, spinach, celery, broccoli, ginger, a beet, & some ice cubes.  All in that order, & a carrot or 2 if it’s not filled completely.  I love our Vitamix!  No waste like our juicer.

How much did I NOT want Monday to come!  I’m trying out something different to see if it works.  Apparently your body needs 48 hours to recover from exercise to build strength & muscle.  I’m testing that theory this week just with my pushups every Monday, Wednesday & Friday.  The rest of my exercises will remain daily unless I see marked improvement with my arms within 3 weeks.

I don’t get along well with technology.  No, I’m not going to rant about my dislike for cell phones.  I tried texting on my dad’s phone when we went to Calgary in the spring.  I have very thin fingers, there was no way I could text.  As thin as my fingers are, the keyboard for texting had very tiny letters/buttons.  I owned a flip phone for about a year to the point this cancer thing happened.

I love it when I’m watching a movie or TV show at home with a group of people who pipe up “WHO IS THAT?  WHAT SHOW WAS THAT PERSON IN?”  “Don’t look at me, you’re the ones with a computer in your pocket!”  www.google.com  uh www.imdb.com

If I wanted to know who it was, I’ll check it out after the show if I remember.  If I don’t remember, it must not have been a life or death situation.  At the end of the day it’s your decision to have a cell or not, or maybe you need one for work as some people are required to.  The one thing I don’t understand is why text someone after work hours?  It’s a cell PHONE, if you’re texting them, why not call them & actually talk to them?  Everybody seems to forget that it’s a phone?

 

BUSH

 

I’ve got 4 of their albums, 1 on CD.  I do have “Sea of Memories” from 2011.  I listen to that album on occasion.  Mostly I listen to their first album “Sixteen Stone” released in 1994.  I’m not an expert on them, I did play & sing 3 songs from that album with the first band I was in.  I wasn’t a HUGE fan, but I thought they were OK.  I think that first album aged well though.  One of those albums I can put on & not skip a song.  When it was first released, Canadians knew them as “Bush X” for a short time.  Apparently there’s a Canadian group named “Bush”.  Never heard of them?

The first song I learned to play & sing was “Comedown”, yes all 4 chords!  BAZINGA!

 

Alter Bridge will be releasing a live album &/or a live concert DVD/Blu-ray of a show in England with an orchestra?

 

I hope “MUSE” will also release the live concert movie in theaters July 12th everywhere but Saskatchewan?  If not, I hope they release it on Blu-ray or DVD.

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

 

Pink & James Corden.  Carpool Karaoke.  Hahahahahahahaha!!!!

 

I’m getting bored with “Walk off the Earth” releasing cover songs & not releasing an original full album.

I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the album “There is Nothing Left to Lose”

I exercised to “Pink” the album “Beautiful Trauma”

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

Weekly exercise total; 240 pushups, 1000 leg lifts, 500 crunches, 500 squats,  600 tricep pushups, & 200 back flexes.

 

Stupid bruise on my left palm & knuckle on my left ring finger has left me the inability to use nothing more than my index finger & my thumb on my left hand.  Any pressure on my palm or fingers & I scream in pain.  It’s better as of Wednesday, but still tender.  The swelling & bruises are subsiding.  I’m able to use my index, middle finger & my thumb now.

I do these exercises 5 days a week.  I don’t look like someone who does 240 pushups a day, at all.  One day maybe?  These exercises are, to me, a wait & see situation.

My core muscles are strong from the planking & 1500 crunches I was doing each day.  I now stick to 100 a day.  My disc in my spine stuck out severely & I couldn’t move.  I’d bump that up gradually to 1000.  I haven’t heard a peep about going for even a consult regarding back surgery?  I don’t think the surgeon would do the surgery unless he has the X-ray from last year or if it pops out again?

 

WALK OFF THE EARTH

 

Another Canadian band based in Burlington, Ontario.  5 members in the group.  4 males & 1 female who has had 2 kids in the last 5 years.  Their music seems to divide people lots of people seem to hate it or love it, I obviously love it.  They have 4 or 5 albums & a TON of singles that are mostly cover songs as well as 2 or 3 EPs.  I have 3 of their albums, 2 EPs, & a TON of singles as one album…

After “Ember to Inferno” it gets really hard for me to choose.

 

Can anybody explain to me what made the “Justice League” so bad?  I love that movie!

 

I still haven’t seen “Avengers: Infinity War”.  I fully intend to though!

I fell asleep to “Stone Temple Pilots” the album “Stone Temple Pilots (2018)”, followed by “Myles Kennedy” his solo album “Year of the Tiger”

Friday is release day, so I get my albums at midnight eastern time, one bonus to daylight savings time!

I exercised to “Pink” the album “Beautiful Trauma”

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

Exercise weekly total; 1000 pushups, 700 leg lifts, 500 crunches, 300 tricep pushups, 300 squats, 200 back flexes.

I don’t think of myself as disabled.  Waking up in the middle of the night to pee has become a normal thing since I drink so much water every day. I wake up, I immediately get moving, I get in my wheelchair, roll to our en suite bathroom, get out of my wheelchair & sit down to pee.  No big deal.

I like to get up by 8:00 am at the latest & get my exercises done first thing in the morning.  For me I prefer quality over quantity.  Everything is pretty good for me right now.  I’ll be doing this total next week.  The week after, who knows?

Out of all of the exercises I do, back flexes & leg lifts are by far the most difficult.  Leg lift amount I don’t see moving anytime soon.  Things don’t increase to an astronomical amount ever.  If I think I should raise anything I usually add 5 to each set I do of that exercise.  If it’s still difficult, the number won’t move.  I can see both types of pushups going up slightly.  Hopefully the squats eventually also.

If I don’t do some type of exercise during a week day, it feels like a wasted day to me.  If I hit my goal for the total at the end of the week, I’m happy with that.  I know that eventually, I can do more!

 

I had 2 shares of the Wednesday post, HUGE difference!  Any help is greatly appreciated!  Spread the word please?

Yes, this is pre-written & now I have some stuff to do around the house.  I’ll be back but it might be a while?

 

RADIOHEAD

Radiohead made 1 OK album followed by 2 masterpiece albums, then noise from then on beginning with the album “Kid A” & have since continued to make very bleak albums with 0 sense of a time signature or melody.  The singer (Thom Yorke) has a fantastic voice but prefers to warble into the microphone now.  Each album is pretty much a guitar player strumming one string & playing with his effect pedals.  During the first 3 albums, they were on my bucket list to see live, but not anymore.  Foo Fighters were on tour with Radiohead & got to watch Radiohead create their masterpiece “OK Computer” the album Rolling Stone Magazine claimed to be the best album ever recorded.  It’s a great album, but that seems like an overstatement to me?  I’ve heard that Radiohead were never fans of their song “Creep”, the distorted guitar that comes in just before the chorus was the guitar player striking his guitar in rage, not sure if that’s true though?  Anyways here are 2 songs from the first 3 albums & one from a future album…………………….

Myself & my friend continued to load up my “Radiohead” CD collection, why I don’t know?

I haven’t watched the “Justice League” yet, I got it on blu-ray to watch it this weekend.  What I find odd is that this ruined the movie for them?  I guess people just really enjoy complaining.

Spring training for baseball is drawing to a close.  Regular season games start Thursday, March 29.  What would really impress me is if the Toronto Blue Jays could move Troy Tulowitzki & his remaining $60,000,000 contract ($20,000,000 a year)!!!  He’s great defensively but his offense is nowhere close to what it used to be.  There seems to be a back load of AAA players ready to take over his spot (short stop).  They’re cheaper, younger, good infielders, faster, & they can hit.  Tulowitzki won’t even play until the end of April.  Big contracts are hard to move, I get that.  What might be more realistic is give him $30,000,000 – $35,000,000 next year, buy out his contract & cut him loose.  He hasn’t touched a baseball field in a game since May or June of last year.  So the Jays are paying him $20,000,000 to be a “cheerleader”?

 

St. Patty’s day tomorrow.  Get your dark Guiness beer or other beer to colour green & say “Thank you” to the Irish!

I fell asleep to “Halestorm” the album “Into the Wild Life”

I exercised to “Earthside” the album “A Dream I Static”

 

600 pushups, 500 leg lifts, & 225 triceps pushups!  I’m not sure what I’ll do for exercise over the holidays?  I don’t want to lose any momentum but I also need a break.  January 2nd everything goes back to normal.  Both types of pushups 45 & 120, 100 crunches, 100 leg lifts, & 40 back flexes 5 days a week.  I need to do some cardio also, we’ll see how that works out.

Got up Wednesday, felt instantly sick to my stomach.  Did my exercises, checked my Facebook & email, had breakfast.  About ½ an hour later I threw up my breakfast.  Returned to the couch until I went to bed at 10:00 pm.  Thursday I slept in until 11:00 am & felt fine.  Did my exercises, had breakfast & got out of the shower a few minutes after 2:00 pm.

Playing baseball was my 2nd hobby but I won’t bore you with that stuff.  I played from the age of 4 until the end of the season when I was 17.  I guess I was playing baseball before I started doing anything else regularly.

When I was in grade 7 my baseball coach was thrown out of the game twice in Little League.  It was LITTLE LEAGUE!  So not worth it!  Our practices were at a high school, before & after each practice we’d all jog around the property twice.  I still had some baby fat on me until that baseball season.  When I say property, it doesn’t mean just the building, but the entire property.  Football field, baseball diamond, parking lot, EVERYTHING!

 

 

Star Wars: Episode VIII, The Last Jedi is now in theaters.  I’m going to the theater, but I’ll wait about a month.  It’s projected to make $425,000,000 this weekend.  I’m waiting until everyone has seen it 10 times, then I’ll go.

 

New “Walk off the Earth” video!

 

Wow, after all of that, I still don’t like Roy Moore!

When I hear a new Tool album I’ll believe it.  They do have many festivals coming up on their schedule though.

Drummer, Danny Carey, said the same thing at the end of 2016 about a new album in 2017.

Maynard James Keenan will be pulling double duty singing for A Perfect Circle & Tool at the same festival.

What’s a millennial, sweeping stereotype for anyone born after 1984?  My brother is NOT a millennial.  My extended family are not millennials.  Everyone was raised by good parents, & we’re taught to work for their goals.

 

Don’t forget!!!!  Foo Fighters are the musical guests on Saturday Night Live!!  Set your DVR, PVR, VCR, Microwave, Oven, BETA MAX, alarm clock, cell phone, BBQ, etc.  Don’t miss it!!!!

I fell asleep to “Big Wreck” the album “The Pleasure & the Greed” released in 2001.

I exercised to “Probot” the only album, all instruments played by Dave Grohl then he sent copies to his favourite metal singers to do the vocals.  Album release was in 2004.

 

400 crunches, 400 pushups, 400 leg lifts, 160 back flexes, 20 minutes of planking.  Next week I’ll try to add some triceps exercise.

Finishing with 5 minutes of planking, then my 100 pushups at the end of my exercise is easily the hardest thing to do.  Once I finish my pushups, at the end of my routine, I roll over on my side to breathe deeply so there’s no pressure on my lungs.  I don’t like exercising before I do it, but afterwards I feel like I’ve achieved something.  I feel better!  All of those times I’d hear people say something like “Oh, I feel great!”  “Oh, this is the best feeling ever!”  I always thought they were a little “Crazy”.  Before I exercise, I try very hard to procrastinate, but the promise of breakfast works as a really good motivator!

When I moved from the Pasqua hospital to the Wascana Rehabilitation Center in 2009, I went through a deep depression.  I constantly cried & apologized to Kim.  I always felt as though I did something wrong to have cancer.  I know it wasn’t my fault.  When everybody was calling me a “hero”, I bought into the hype & lashed out at others.  No, that’s nowhere near who I really am.  I don’t like to be called a “hero” or “victim”.  I’m in the middle, as I see it.  I got VERY lucky & I’m alive.  I’m a normal guy that got really lucky, surrounded by many friends & family members.  I’m alive.

 

THAT’S ALL FOR THE CANCER TALK FOR NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Little bit of my struggles with Apple.  Without exaggerating the number, I think I’ve made 8-10 calls to customer support since September began.  I have been polite throughout this time with them.  My problems baffle the customer service people though.  They help me fix 1 problem eventually & 2 days later another issue appears.  I’ve even “downloaded” stuff through the Apple Music streaming site that they use as a band aid when they have no other solution, even Apple Music is now screwed up!  To say that I’m frustrated doesn’t even touch the tip of the iceberg!  I’m going to leave it as is & ask if Kim will field a call for me at some point.

ASCOT ROYALS

“Ascot Royals” opened for “Big Wreck” in February.  I wasn’t really expecting anything.  I thought it would be a “Ho hum” moment, another ½ hour before “Big Wreck” hit the stage.  I’m SO glad I go to every show in time for the opening act!  They were surprisingly really good.  They live in Ontario, but I think the singer mentioned that they were all immigrants?  Don’t quote me on that.

 

They have 1 full album out & a 7 song EP on iTunes, I assume they’re on streaming sites as well.  The full album was released in 2012, the EP was released earlier this year.

 

I can confirm that “Muse” & “Halestorm” are both in studio working on their new albums.  I saw photos of both in the studio!  Separately of course.

I fell asleep to “The Travelling Wilburys”

I exercised to “Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers” their Greatest Hits.

 

We finished off Thanksgiving Monday by going to a “My Little Pony” movie with our friends & our “niece”.

EVERYBODY will likely encounter some type of roadblock in their life, there’s no need to hide it.  It is hard to talk about & deal with eventually, just do your best to get over it & put it out there!  I was the same way, I didn’t want people I didn’t know to see me in a wheelchair with an iPatch.  I can’t be in the house & not have new friends for the rest of my life.  I had to get over that.  Since about the middle of 2014 I just let that go, one less thing for me to stress about.  If people want to look, that’s fine by me & questions are more than welcome, even encouraged.

No matter what it is, you can’t worry about it for however long you have a mental, physical, or internal issue.  Let it go so you don’t have to carry that weight with you forever, it will get heavier with each second & once you’ve figured out how to deal with it, you no longer have to worry what other people think.  Most people probably don’t notice it in the first place!

I’m pretty sure I have a bit of OCD in me.  We have 2 bathrooms, both must have 3 extra rolls of toilet paper.  I always stack them on the back of the toilet, in a pyramid.  2 on the bottom, 1 on top, & whatever is currently in use.  I also don’t like a pile of dirty dishes in the sink.  I put what I can in the dishwasher, & %50 of the time I’ll do the hand wash dishes.  I also like to finish a task before I go to bed.  If I don’t I’ll be awake for too long thinking about it.

 

 

THAT’S ALL FOR WHAT’S ON MY MIND & CANCER TALK!  HERE COMES THE POPCULTURE STUFF! 

 

ED SHEERAN

 

Ed Sheeran is quite popular so I shouldn’t need to give you much, if any, background on him.  Kim & I saw him in Regina, on tour just before his 2nd of 3 albums was released.  Cool to see him live, but the sound here at the arena sucks.  Whenever he turned on his digital pedal with pre-recorded stuff to make it sound like a full band, everything became slightly distorted.  Not how you want to experience Ed Sheeran, a guy playing acoustic guitar!  This is the show that broke me.  Ended up watching 50% of the show through someone’s cell phone & what was released a few months later?  A concert video of his show at Wembley Stadium!  So glad I paid to watch the concert on a 4 inch screen.

I’m a big fan on his stuff.  Big Wreck & Foo Fighters have been my 2 favourite bands for a long time though!  Nothing has changed that.  Big Wreck & Foo Fighters both released an album this year.  Ed Sheeran hasn’t received my attention as much as he deserves it.  He “fell through the cracks”.

 

You shouldn’t need much background, but here are two songs from each of his first 2 albums.
