Do you have a question about stage 4 brain cancer?  Ask if you do!

I fell asleep to “Muse” the album “Black Holes & Revelations”

Friday I was busy doing not much that I remember?  We watched TV until we called it a day & went to bed.

Kim was getting a pedicure with some friends.  Timothy Wong was in town & came over to visit around 11:00 am for a bit.  Nice visit with him, I miss that guy, we’ve been very good friends since “grade 9”.

We went to my parents’ place for supper & a game of “Yahtzee” with my cousin, her boyfriend, & Rachel (Mitch’s girlfriend).  I don’t think I’ve seen my parents since my birthday at the end of January.  Mitch was at home doing some mixing or recording some music.  He’s pretty busy with that at the moment.  He’s the really smart one with that.  He took 3 cassettes from me & converted them to iTunes files, well 2/3 worked.

Today is our day of getting ready for the week ahead & watching the over rated Oscars.  It’s usually a bunch of artsy fartsy movies that win, I much more into the R rated comedies that are never nominated.

 

Tim & I were chatting about the push for a 20 class reunion.  There are people who want to have one & some are willing to organize or at least help organize it.  I’ve pretty much decided that I’m not a proponent of a 20 year reunion.  Tim organized the 10 year reunion which I decided I wasn’t going to it but I had a good excuse.  I had brain cancer.  Worst excuse EVER!  If I get brain cancer again this year & there’s a reunion, then we know what caused my brain cancer in 2008.  Hahahahahahahahaha!

 

 

BARENAKED LADIES

My uncle Kent lent the little yellow cassette to us.  He was in Ontario & Barenaked Ladies were selling the cassette out of the back of their vehicle after a show.  I listened to it on a Walkman!  Barenaked Ladies were my first concert in 1992.  I was 12 & my brother was 5.  Our immediate family went, all 4 of us.  A band from Regina, Saskatchewan opened the show, The Waltons.  Barenaked Ladies raved about how delicious Houston Pizza was during the show.  Their first full length album “Gordon” was released that year, & I loved it & still do.  I haven’t missed a Barenaked Ladies show in Regina since.  Just saw them in November, on tour for their album “Fake Nudes”!

Here’s more recent stuff!

Nothing like having the drummer sing a guitar solo!

Are they paying royalties to “Thin Lizzy”?

Drummer, Lars Ulrich of Metallica, has stated that there will be no reissue or remix of the album “…And Justice for All”, you know what that means?  Wait & within 5 years there will be a “…And Justice for All” remastered version out!

I’m starting to enjoy some Metallica honestly, but Lars has contradicted almost everything he’s said publically, sometimes even the next day”

  1. Retraction: Not all nominated movies are over rated. One year Kim & I watched 2 movies nominated for best film. One of them was the winner of the category. Both movies were terrible. Watched one & wasted 20 minutes for the other to get better. Worst $12 spent on rented movies! Kim agreed, so it’s not just me.
