Gonna have to get my left leg injury a look at by a doctor soon, still got it unfortunately…

Welp, I’m gonna have to get my upper left leg injury a look at by my doctor pretty soon as I’ll be having an appointment in a few weeks. After a month off of the gym, I still got the upper left leg injury (or the hip flexor is what they call it).

I’m gonna go get it checked out by a doctor in a few weeks to make sure nothing is torn so hopefully nothing is torn. I’m pretty sure nothing’s torn ’cause if it was torn you would know by seeing some nasty discoloring… I’m not seeing anything like that. I probably just got a nasty muscle pull or something.

I’ve gone back to the gym this week but no lower body lifting and no deadlifting for a long while, unfortunately. Hopefully I won’t be needing surgery on this leg or won’t be walking on crutches or anything like that. If so then so be it, I’m willing to do whatever it takes to get rid of this leg pain forever.

I’m sure the doctor could figure out what it is real quick and hopefully they can give it something to make it go away faster, that’s what I’m hoping the most. My powerlifting training will be on hold as of this moment.

Injury setbacks sucks. I’ve done pretty good staying injury free for the most part until now. I just want this leg pain to go away completely so I can go back to serious powerlifting training ’cause it’s holding back my numbers.

Injuries suck and yes, I do get ’em once in a blue moon. Not very often. I’m always very careful in the gym.

Just starting Season 7 of “The Walking Dead” and the show is getting real good… Negan best thing to happen on the show? YES, I would say!!!

Man, I’m so glad that I’ve gotten back into watching “The Walking Dead” after bailing on the show after Season 3. Now I wished I never bailed. The show is really great. Probably the best show on cable TV right now.

I’ve gotten back into the show ’cause this character Negan has been catching a lot of internet buzz lately and that’s what drew me back into the show. I’ve gotten so much to catch upon with the “Walking Dead” so I decided to start from the very beginning from Season 1 and make my way all the way up to Season 9 on Netflix. Season 10 isn’t on Netflix yet since it’s currently airing on cable TV still.

I’ve just started “Season 7” this week and this Negan character is just starting to appear. Even though I’ve only seen two episodes with this Negan character in it, I’m already loving the character and now I can see why this character sparked a lot of internet buzz. Why? It’s because the actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan plays the character so fucking well. Yup, Jeffrey Dean plays the character so amazingly well that I think it’s award worthy for sure. No wonder this character has gotten popular so fast! Even though Negan is a villain, he is entertaining as hell and actually very like-able!

I think the stuff with The Governor was really good as I thought David Morrisey did a good job playing him but I think Negan is the best villain of the show. Toward the end of Season 6 and the start of Season 7, the show “Walking Dead” will start to get very dark and really intense. It’s really insane stuff.

I’ve stopped buying the “Walking Dead” books but I’m gonna have to get back into those too.

My question is how much longer the “Walking Dead” show is gonna go on for AMC? I learned that Andrew Lincoln who plays Rick Grimes finally quit the show after all these years. I think it could go on for a few more seasons, either that or 10 might be the final one, not sure.

The show is real great, though. Negan is the best thing to happen on it… did Jeffrey Dean win an award for that role yet? If not, he really should ’cause that’s an award worthy performance. Man, that’s some damn good acting.

I’m gonna have to take a break from watching “The Walking Dead” for a little while ’cause I have other things to watch this weekend ’cause I’m gonna start “Game of Thrones – Season 8” tonight and I’m planning on starting “The Witcher” on Netflix at some point.

Hope you all had a great Christmas this week, I sure did even though I was sick for most of the week…

I was meaning to post on Christmas Day but I was too busy spending it with family and plus, I was sick most of the week. I was battling a nasty sinus infection which lasted for over a week and then on Christmas Day, I’ve gotten the stomach bug which only lasted for a day. I’m all better 100% now, though. No colds and no stomach bugs so I’m good now.

Anyway, it was a great Christmas for me. Got some amazing gifts… just got a 43 inch Smart TV, some movies for my bluRay collection (Midsommar, Rambo: Last Blood, Avengers: Endgame, Game of Thrones – Season 8, The Dirty Harry Film Collection), a few video games for the PS4 (“Days Gone” and “Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order”) and a few books to read. Everything else is just clothes and gift cards.

It was a nice Christmas this year. Hope you had a great one too!

Left leg injury update: feeling way better this week after deciding to take a full month off of the gym for good!

Well, my upper left leg injury is feeling really good this week. Feeling way better after decided to take a gym hiatus. I vowed to take a full month off lifting completely for the month of Dec. and ’cause of that all minor injuries seem to be gone.

My upper left leg is no longer feeling pain and no cramps after standing a long time, hip has gotten better and no longer feeling left-shoulder weakness so it’s all looking good. I’m still gonna take this week off the gym to give them even more time and I maybe good enough to start going back to the gym next week.

I’ve also been battling a nasty sinus infection for over a week and feeling better with that today.

Ugggh, gym setbacks suck but I’ve had them before. I think I’ll be good enough to go back to the gym next week to go back to some serious lifting on both bodybuilding and powerlifting ’cause I miss that.

Like I said before, it’s okay to take time off from the gym only if you’re either injured or sick. You can’t take time off just because you want to. If you’re injured gotta stop training ’cause working out through an injury is not gonna make it better.

I’ll probably go back to the gym next week, we’ll see. Goal for the gym in 2020 is to keep going through a full year without getting injured and I’ll be careful next time.

I want to go back to powerlifting training. Go back to heavy lifting on the big three: bench, squat and deadlift. Hope my numbers on those three lifts didn’t go down but if they did, oh well. I’ll go back training a lot harder than ever before! I’ll build my “pr’s” back up in 2020.

Thoughts on Trump getting “impeached” through the House… it’s bullshit but not surprised… how did Trump get impeached over nothing???

I’m sure you all wanna know my thoughts on Trump getting impeached through House last night. Did I watch the debates last night before the voting started on the two Bills? I didn’t spend all day long watching the debates but I caught some of them. I hate to be a one-sided person but I actually agreed with all the Republicans last night and I believe that the Democrats should be thrown in a mental institution. I started watching the debates at like 5 in the evening and was watching the rest of the night on C-Span. The Republicans were on fire with their speeches and I agreed with everything they are saying. Trump is right the Republicans in the House are completely united. The two bills didn’t get one “Nay” vote by the Republicans which is pretty amazing really.

With that being said, I’ll continue to vote straight Republican at every election ’cause I’ll never vote for a Democrat… except there was one Democrat that I actually like and consider her a star,… Tulsi Gabbard. She voted “Nay” on both bills… I missed her speech but I was impressed that she was actually against impeachment. I didn’t like Tulsi at first but she just made me like her a little more and now I’m a fan of Tulsi, I think. I would pretty much prefer Tulsi become the Democrat nominee and run against Trump than all the other Democrats but if she does get the nomination, I’ll be vote for Trump either way.

Lefties are getting all excited ’cause the two bills needs to get through the Senate and Nancy Pelosi is not allowing that to happen. She’s holding the two bills hostage ’cause I think the goal is that she wants McConnell to have a fair vote. Are they sure they want a fair vote ’cause the Republicans are gonna be voting “Nay” on impeachment in the Senate. The Republicans are gonna win and Pelosi knows it… I think that’s why she’s scared to death of sending the two impeachment bills to McConnell. The Senate is mostly Republican controlled, everybody knows that. I don’t know how united the Republicans are over the impeachment in the Senate ’cause there are a lot of Trump hating Republicans in the Senate so I don’t know. The Dems still might win on impeachment in the Senate, ya never know. Anything can happen.

Trump did nothing wrong over that Zelensky call. Trump’s the president, that is part of his job is to keep in contact with other leaders of the world. Trump committed no crime and there’s no proof of that. So he just got impeached over nothing.

I just find it hilarious that a lot of Democrats say things like “all president must be held accountable for abusing their presidential power”… well, Obama abused his presidential power for 8 years and was never investigated for any of them and Obama never got impeached. Our system is broken for sure.

If Congress is successful at removing Trump from office then this means WAR!!! We’ll go to war in the voting booth by voting out every Democrat and we’ll take the House back. Trump will easily win the re-election of 2020 if he doesn’t get impeached through the Senate and I’m pretty sure he won’t.

For the time being, Trump is still your president. I support him 100% and I don’t care what the haters say. I’m not changing for anyone. He’ll gladly get my vote in 2020 again.

Sly Stallone back in Philadelphia but what for???

Sylvester Stallone is in Philadelphia this week for a “special something” but Sly isn’t saying anything. He’s keeping everything tight-lipped for now of what he’s in Philly for but I bet it has something to do with Rocky. As you can see, Sly visits the Rocky Balboa statue and it seems Sly is in Rocky character… wearing the Rocky hat and black leather jacket… Sly is even talking in the Rocky voice too. He has every right to be Rocky in Philly ’cause he is Rocky if that makes sense.

Anyway, the first video is Sly visiting the Rocky statue and a few minutes later, he gets mobbed by fans in Philly. As you can see in the second video, Sly was willing to hang with them for a little bit and take a group selfie with them.

It may not seem like it but Sly is a very popular actor. He’s probably one of the most popular actors in the world. He’s got fans all over the USA and he’s got fans in other countries too. His fanbase is very massive. Why? It’s because Sly rules! He’s a stand up guy with a good sense of humor, he’s very likeable plus he’s a very talented actor. Some of you may find it silly that I called him “very talented” ’cause the man is. Many of you don’t know it yet. On top of all this, the man is a freakin’ badass and a genius. I’ve always been a fan of Sly ever since I was a child and still loyal to this man to this very day.

I’ve watched his films over the years and he inspired me like everyone else. Those fans are lucky ’cause I wish I was in Philly this week so I can meet the man in person.

It seems that Sly owns the Rocky hat himself that he wore in the Rocky series over the years and it’s very rare to see him wear the Rocky hat in public… only in Philly, I guess. Even though Sylvester is 73 now, he still looks like Rocky with that hat on.

Thought this was very cool.

John Frusciante officially re-joins the Red Hot Chilli Peppers as a full time member…

This is really great news. The Chilli Peppers announced on their IG page that their long-time guitarist John Frusciante has now officially re-joined the band as their full time guitarist again. This means that their previous guitarist, Josh Klinghoffer will have to be replaced so John can rejoin the group. Keep in mind though that Klinghoffer is not being fired from the band ’cause the band here wants to make it clear that it was an amicable split between the two. It looks like the guys in the Chilli Peppers had a long talk with Klinghoffer for him to leave the band so John can re-join and looks like Klinghoffer was all for it. Why? I would think Klinghoffer is a fan of the Chilli Peppers like the rest of us and he wanted to see John re-join.

I stopped supporting the Chilli Peppers music once John left ’cause I wasn’t that crazy about that Klinghoffer’s guitar playing style. The Peppers music with Klinghoffer as guitarist never grabbed me. Admittedly, I do have their album “I’m With You” w/ Klinghoffer as guitarist on it but I didn’t like that album too much ’cause it didn’t feel like a Chilli Peppers record at all so I didn’t bother buying their latest album, “The Getaway”. The Chilli Peppers only did two albums with Josh.

John Frusciante is coming back as a full time member. It isn’t going to be a one-off kind of thing. That means Frusciante will be back to recording in the studio with the Chilli Peppers and going on full World Tours with them and stuff.

Like everyone else, I too am a HUGE fan of the Frusciante era of the Chilli Peppers. The Chilli Peppers wrote the best songs with Frusciante. The Chilli Peppers with Frusciante as guitarist were hit makers… they wrote a bunch of smash hits that everyone knows and love: “Under the Bridge”, “Give It Away”, “Suck My Kiss”, “Californication”, “By The Way”, “Scar Tissue”, “Can’t Stop”, “Soul To Squeeze”, etc. The list is endless… Frusciante wrote all those songs with the band. John wrote memorable songs with the Chilli Peppers that never left our heads.

Did Klinghoffer write any smash hits with the two albums they did with the Chilli Peppers that would be considered radiofriendly? Maybe the song “Dark Necessittes” but that’s about it.

Now I’m looking forward to the next Chilli Peppers record when Frusciante hits the studio with them again. They’re probably gonna hit the studio again to write and record songs for the next album asap. The next album probably won’t come out ’til 2021 ’cause it takes forever to record an album. Now the Chilli Peppers can go back to make some sick music again with Frusciante on guitar ’cause the band was at their best with Frusciante. Glad that John is coming back though after a long hiatus from the band.

Wonder what made John come back to them? Maybe John wrote a bunch of song ideas that would be good for Chilli Peppers music and that’s probably what did it, I bet. Maybe John just felt like having fun again. He probably just missed making music with them and wanted to get back into it.

This is great news, though and I’m excited!
