Tomorrow’s “The Ides of March” as Shakespeare once said.
Before anyone starts ripping me apart, I only have their first CD on my iPod. I own and have played the song “Higher” from their 2nd album which I haven’t listened to since it was popular in the very early 2000s. The first CD is more than enough Creed for me. It’s titled “My Own Prison”. I don’t love it and I don’t hate it. It’s an album that I listen to like once a year or so.

When all is said and done I give Creed a D- overall. Why oh why did our first band play “Higher”?
Oh Big Wreck why must your songs be in awkward/different tunings on every song you need a different guitar tuned differently. Same with Pearl Jam. I learned 3 songs on the first album and the intro to this song. The first 3 songs I could play in a simple 2 or 3 chord progression in drop D tuning and figured out the chord progression, not this song! I had to tune my guitar to some weird open tuning, then gave up. Pearl Jam, I can only play “Better man” oh, how you mock me?!

Waiting for a new Tool album is still not as bad as waiting for Canadian band I Mother Earth to do a show in Saskatchewan? I don’t think they have any intention of coming to the prairies ever again.
Please don’t be critical of what I do to deal with the effects of brain cancer. I know it’s suggested with good intentions. When I hear others say I should do this or that, I think “I know what I have to work on and how I’ll approach it”. If you’re a health care professional, it’s OK. If you’re not part of the health care region or haven’t had brain cancer, PLEASE keep your opinions on brain cancer and how to deal with it to yourselves, as I’ve learned to do! I’m not mad or angry. I’ve reached the point where I have to be happy with myself, and not listen to the peanut gallery. At the end of everyday, I know I’m the best I can be at that moment. With everyday I get a little better!
