I fell asleep to “Myles Kennedy” the album “Year of the Tiger”.

I exercised to “Chromeo” 2 albums on shuffle.

No new wheelchair yet!

Yep, I have little moments of anxiety.  I really don’t like meeting new people while I’m in this wheelchair with an iPatch.  On the flip side of this I’m not even 40 yet, so I’m way too young to not meet new people.  What causes my anxiety?  I couldn’t tell you, because I have no idea?  I know that nobody stares at me in public or anywhere else.

Lately I just always feel as though I don’t fit in, which is a double edged sword for me.  I don’t want to be like anyone else, but I also want to feel accepted (which I know I am).  It’s all in my head.

It’s me thinking “I’m here, now what can I do to speed up my recovery?  I’m not at the point that I can move on, so what do I do now?  This exercising is getting redundant, not easy but redundant.”  Sure I mix up my exercises daily, but that’s not enough.  I need a break, but I don’t like having an extended break.  If it’s a break that’s 5 or more days, it makes my exercises more difficult when I start again.  That being said 5 days is not a long enough break.

I could be that we had multiple visitors last week, & that was a welcome change of pace but now it’s back to the regular routine again?  Whatever it is, it’s in my head.  NOBODY has done anything to cause this, it’s just me in a slump.

I’ll likely get some hate from this but this is my view on millennials, as an outsider.

The average age for a kid to get a cell phone is 6 years old, WHY?  I’m 38 & I don’t need a cell phone.  I had a cell phone before I had cancer, it certainly didn’t save my life, & I don’t miss it at all.  If I had a kid that wanted a cell phone, they would be more than welcome to get one, with some rules in place.  Rule number 1, get a job & buy your own phone, rule 2, when the kid comes home from school, the phone goes away until the homework is done & supper is cleaned up.  Until that’s finished, no phone.  Final rule, if the kid’s in a room with other people, the phone disappears.  I’m 38 & a cell phone for myself would feel like a HUGE waste of money.  Did your parents take a phone call when someone was over?  I always heard “Can I call you back later?  We have company over right now.”  Why does that not apply to today’s world?  Texting is the same if you ask me.  Relax the text will be there still, try some etiquette?   That’s just me though & my opinion.

As for streaming music, I get the appeal, it’s out there & legal.  My iPod, 160 gig classic still works, but it does not work for streaming music.  In this case I’m either going to pay hundreds of dollars for an iPhone or iPod touch or roughly $200 for a decent vinyl player & a vinyl collection?  I’m leaning heavily towards vinyl & when my iPod dies there will be no replacement for it.  Napster was free when it first appeared & I like iTunes.  That album you’ve been streaming for a year now has cost you $120 since last year when you got it.  I paid $9.99 once & I haven’t paid to hear it again.  For me streaming music is a wolf disguised in sheep’s clothing.  I’d much rather pay once & own it.

Do you really think musicians will go along with streaming music where they can make $0.05 per stream?  Musicians prior to this streaming fad were loaded with cash, but now musicians are basically working for free.  Remember that this is my opinion & you have every right to your opinion.

Well millennials are taking away my option to buy cheap music.  They’re convinced streaming music is a better option?  I guess anyone using a streaming music site doesn’t want to OWN their music.  “Thank you” millennials for ruining a good idea.  Apple could easily keep the iTunes option if they’re still offering the streaming/Apple Music service.  Same technology I assume?



Just let it play multiple videos regarding millennials in the work place!

This is another stereotype that has exceptions, like all stereotypes.


This won’t happen.  Tuition is not free, most of us have had to pay tuition!  I hope she’s not taking economics!

I didn’t search this subject on this is just what was on there!

I was always told if you want something you have to work for it.  I was born in 1980 & my brother was born in 1987.  He was told the same as I was.  He’s not a stereotypical millennial.  I’ve never considered my younger cousins a stereotypical millennials either.  I’m the oldest cousin on my dad’s side of the family & among the 4 oldest on my mother’s side.  I don’t think it’s the kids fault?  As a parent maybe treat your kids the same way you were raised?  I’m not a parent for that reason.  I don’t think I have it in me to be a responsible parent & raise a responsible child.  I’m not saying the people I know aren’t responsible or that I’m forcing any type of parenting skills on anyone.  This is how I would raise my child if I had one.

My father & I went to see Queens of the Stone Age in Calgary during the spring, I think it was near the end of May?  Royal Blood was the opener.  Before the concert started there were people sitting to my left having a discussion.  I couldn’t see them since my iPatch is on my left eye, anything to the left of me is totally out of my vision.  I don’t know if they were brother & sister, dating or married, or friends that came to see Queens of the Stone Age.  They were speaking loudly so I heard everything they were saying, & they had thick British accents.  They were talking about Oasis & Noel Gallagher.  The male had absolutely no clue who Oasis was?  The female was explaining everything she could about them to the guy.  How does someone come from the same country as one of the biggest rock bands of the ‘90s & not have a clue who Oasis is, or their guitar player & songwriter?  It’s really not that big of a deal, I was completely flabbergasted!  Whoever the girl was knew everything though.  Oasis is probably as well known in England as The Tragically Hip is in Canada.  Not everyone will be a HUGE fan but most people know who they are.  She explained everything to him, & they sounded as though they were the same age.  It just baffled me that they both knew who Queens of the Stone Age were but not Oasis, weird?  Maybe I just have too much useless music trivia in my head, it’s genetic!  My brother & I got it from mostly dad, but both parents.  I only have 3 “Oasis” albums & 2 “Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds” albums.

I found out about Queens of the Stone Age via Nirvana.  Dave Grohl was Nirvana’s drummer, then singer for Foo Fighters, then played drums on 2 complete albums for Queens of the Stone Age.  Oasis’ big album in 1995 was also the year Foo Fighters released their debut album.

I fell asleep to “Diemonds” 2/3 albums I own on shuffle “The Bad Pack” & “Never Wanna Die” got up go to the washroom, came back & to “Megadeth” the album “Dystopia”

I exercised to “Blameshift” 2 Eps & a full length album on shuffle, washed dishes to “Ed Sheeran” all 3 albums on shuffle.

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

I’m dumb!  Largest understatement I’ve made in the last 10 minutes, I’ve been watching CNN.  It took stage 4 brain cancer for me to wake up & start taking care of myself.  The photo of 2 guitar players on stage is of my brother & I.  I’m the guy in a white T-Shirt.  That’s me at my heaviest 265lbs, no I don’t look that heavy, doesn’t mean it’s OK though.  I haven’t weighed myself lately.  I did about 6 months ago & I was 233.  I went into the hospital at 265 & ballooned to probably close to 300?  I’m lighter at 233 than I’ve ever been in my adult life.  The only problem is ALL off my weight went to my stomach.  I have T-Shirts that don’t fit over my stomach.  I may have to have a serious discussion with my stomach.  At least I’ve smartened up & eat healthier now, & 3 drinks are more than enough Friday or Saturday.  Before I was sick it was outrageous!  8 or 9 drinks minimum on Friday & repeat on Saturday.  I really don’t miss those days, I’m a morning person now.  I like to get up & get stuff done!  Then I’ll sit on my butt & relax, & if the Blue Jays are on TV, don’t even pretend that I hear you!  Hahahahahhahaha!

I won’t be doing my exercises until Tuesday, Canada’s Thanksgiving is on Monday.  I just need to do some stretching.  Kim went to work today for the first time this week.  She’s probably still a bit sore but she can stand up straight now.  My joints & muscles are sore from doing my exercises & trying to do everything else that Kim does “around here”.  That’s the only reason I’m taking it easy.  Kim was trying to be “Supergirl” before her back went out, & I was trying to be “Wonderboy” when her back went out?

I fell asleep to “Sum 41” half of the album “Screaming Bloody Murder”, then the entire “Stitched Up Heart” “Never Alone” album, woke up to tinkle. Came back to bed & listened to “Megadeth” the latest album “Dystopia”

I exercised to “Chevelle” everything. Stereo wasn’t working? I played a mix of Chevelle. New album 8 days away!

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

Exercise total for 4 days ; 5250 crunches, 490 leg lifts, 250 squats, & 200 like push ups. Let me “Break it down” for you.

This is during a normal 5 day week. 1500 crunches, 140 leg lifts, 80 squats, & 50 push ups, 5 days a week. I’ve got the time for that & no, I don’t get paid for that, well I guess disability & EI checks pay me for that. My left hand is still quite shaky but I can hold things with it if I hold them against my torso. When I add an exercise, of course it takes me longer. So all of that takes me 2-2 ½ hours a day. I like to get started by 8:00 am usually if not earlier. Get it done & out of the way! I had a week that I was procrastinating my exercise. Not this week though! Just a day of feeling a little quizy, threw off my numbers a bit. 80 squats a day now instead of 60, yet my dominant leg, right leg, looks like chicken wing bone? My left calf is slightly larger. I’m still 240 pounds, I think it’s my fat turning into muscle? I know I was 265 when I got sick & I still didn’t look terribly overweight really. I’m much thinner now!

You know how your shampoo bottle says to use a dime amount to wash your hair? I don’t have much hair so I use a nickle of shampoo, that’s half of the recommendation……….or ……………wait………I screwed it up a nickle is bigger than a dime, my bad!

Wait “Weezer” covered a song off of “OK Computer” by Radiohead?

Disturbed albums ranked. I haven’t listened to Disturbed since I heard the 3rd album “10,000 Fists”. I played it once & I’m pretty sure that’s the last time I listened to. Other people are fans & that’s fine with me!

I fell asleep to “Rob Zombie” his “Greatest Hits” which includes some “White Zombie” work he had done before. First I listened to roughly ½ of “Tom Cochrane” the album “Mad Mad World” then roughly ½ of “Walk off the Earth” the album “Sing it All Away”.

This is what the theme song for (Star Wars) should be if they needed a different one ”Use The Force” by Jamiroquai

I’m sitting here doing nothing since my body is tired & sore. My mind does not agree though. I keep thinking I need to do more but I feel far to tired to workout yet. I hate working out, but I know I need to! I look at my exercise mat & it’s just sitting there mocking me. That’s what it feels like at least. I’m just tired & want to nap when this is done!

Masterpiece review from Monday

If you like “Tremonti” or “Alter Bridge” great! If you don’t like them great! You should at least know who they are or who you don’t like?!!? I’m guessing they’re not well known since they tour in Europe mostly & very rarely in North America?

I fell asleep to first “Auf Der Maur” the entire 12 song self titled album (You may know here as the bass player from ‘Hole’, then ‘Smashing Pumpkins’). Then I fell asleep during “Lamb of God” the album “VII Sturm Und Drang”

Woke up to pee, that’s getting annoying, came back to bed a put on “Linkin Park” the album “Meteora”

I exercised to ”Into Eternity” all 5 albums on shuffle!

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer. for email

4 days of exercise & I just felt lazy this week, still did a work out everyday, just not as much. I did hit a high point today, ever since Kevin Hart said what he did for exercise on ellen, I figured there’s no reason I can’t do the same……………………….I did 1000 crunches today! If he can do 1000 sit ups a day, I can do 1000 crunches in a day did it hurt? Yes! But did I achieve my goal, today I did! My abs are in very good shape, it’s the 1 ½ inch of fat over top that’s the problem.

Here’s the 4 day total 120 squats, 160 push ups, 80 leg lifts, 1600 crunches.

Spring training ends on Saturday 1 game tonight in Montreal & another tomorrow both are Toronto vs. Boston. The Jays fly to Tampa Bay for the season opener on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Rays for 4 games. With the offense Toronto has for however long, I expect a minimum of 6 runs/game with a handful of stinkers on occasion & I don’t think 100W-62L is out of the question this year. I can see them trading Edwin Encarnacion at the end of July if they think they can sign José Bautista. Edwin maybe 4 years younger but he swings a bat mostly where as José plays a position & hits home runs. Edwin has back issues from standing on the turf at the Rogers Center/Sky Dome.

Thursday’s episode of Netflix & Chill courtesy of Consequence of Sound!

FYI Season 2 of “Daredevil” is on Netflix only & “The Punisher” character is introduced in the 2nd season. I didn’t see either of these movies so many years ago.

21 embarrassments in rock music in the last 30 years. Metallica’s album “St. Anger” ticked off a TON of they’re hardcore fans, if it’s not on this list, it should be. Zero production & zero guitar solos.

It didn’t make the list, this was the lead single or at least one of the singles

Lamb of God tour dates from April 30th-June 11th

Alter Bridge has now started recording guitar tracks for their 5th studio album, photo & caption on Facebook! YAY!

I’m going to watch Batman vs. Superman “………I don’t care what the “critics” say…………”. I’ll decide for myself if it’s good or bad!

Weezer has a new album out today called “The White Album”. I like Weezer, but I’m not a huge fan, I’m a casual fan.

I like the singles really the rest of each album doesn’t do it for me. I went through iTunes & made a Greatest Hits album of their singles from their previous releases.

According to Metallica drummer, Lars Ulrich, the mocumentary “This is Spinal Tap” is a horror story. I never understand what he says publically?

When Kim’s not home my music is turned up to 11!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The rumours are true, Guns n’ Roses, kick off their reunion tour tonight in L.A. followed by 20 more dates. Axl should be there roughly 2 hours into the show, if history will repeat itself?

Tour dates are listed here……………

He didn’t win American Idol I think he reached number 4? I was really looking forward to his album release, but it just wasn’t for me. Zakk Wylde, Ozzy guitarist, appeared with him on American Idol.

I’m assuming this is his 2nd or 3rd album? He was on the show a few years ago, when country music singer Scotty McCreery won.

What I do Monday-Friday? I like to get up when Kim gets up to go to work, 6:00 am, 6:30 am, or at least 7:00 am. I like to get up & get everything done so I can do nothing so Kim & I can spend the evening together.

I get up & have my usual breakfast of water, black coffee, & a glass of blended fruit & vegetables that I make on the weekends. I sit down & watch one of the night time talk shows I recorded from the previous night. After that, I get my butt in gear & exercise for 1 hour or a little more. I shower every second day either after my exercises or before bed if Kim & I go walking when she gets home from work. Once that’s done I come into our computer room & start grabbing stuff for the blog. After that………….lunch, then back in here. I then hit the couch around 2:30 or 3:00 pm. I watch “Prime Time Sports with Bob McCown”. Kim calls on her way home to see if we need anything & what my thoughts are for supper, or whatever we do or don’t have planned.
