I don’t want to overload you with links, pick what you want to know about & feel free to skip the other stuff.  The www.youtube.com links are there for a point of reference if you don’t know what I’m talking about.

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

No such thing as a stupid question!  Ask me & I’ll try to break it down for you!

I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the album “Concrete & Gold” followed by “Lamb of God/Burn the Priest” the album “Legion XX”

Woke up at 5:30 am & listened to “Dead Sara” the debut self-titled album.  I did my exercises in silence too early for music.  I ate breakfast to “Metallica” the album “Ride the Lightning”


I didn’t exercise on Wednesday since I had a doctor appointment at the cancer clinic, so only a 4 day weekly exercise total; 960 pushups, 800 leg lifts, 400 crunches, 400 squats, 440 tricep pushups, & 160 back flexes.

The tricep exercise went from 100 to 120 Thursday & Today.

What the doctors told me on Friday & every time prior to that really humbles me.  This talk of me being a “hero”, “miracle”, “best patient”, etc. used to go straight to my head & inflate my ego.  Not anymore.  I prefer to stay quiet & humble.  Sure my body survived brain cancer.  I’m thankful for that & happy to be alive.  How did my body survive?  All I did was sleep 23 hours a day for a year.  My BODY survived cancer.

I survived & immediately pissed everyone off with my words.  Once you read them, you can’t unread them.  Thanks for forgiving me, I don’t forgive me!  I HATE that I became that person at the time, I wish I could forget it.

I don’t hold onto a grudge with anyone, except myself.  I’ll beat myself up over the smallest thing, just to take a lesson on what not to do.

I’m only 38, but I’ll remember every mistake that changed my life & remind myself not to do whatever it was in that situation.


The President can call other countries “shithole countries” & keeps his job.  Roseanne Barr sends out 1 racist tweet & her show is immediately cancelled.  This is a really messed up world.  No, I’m not defending either of them.

What happened to freedom of speech?  Is it now just for Donald Trump?  I don’t like what Roseanne said or whatever comes out of Trumps yap.  Why does the multiple time offender get to keep his job, the onetime offender lose her job?

I don’t agree with either statement but at the moment they have freedom of speech, I don’t have to like what they say but they’re both using their right, even if utter stupidity comes out.


My dad & I agree on a lot of music.  I grew up on my parents’ music & I’ve exposed them to some of my music.  My dad’s iPod had died, so we took mine with some new music I introduced him to & stuff I grew up listening to.  Of course we listened to some “Queens of the Stone Age” & “Royal Blood” on the way to Calgary for the show.  Music I put on since he might be interested…





On the way back we played music he introduced me to.  All of this is on my iPod!




DIRE STRAITS (Love over Gold & Communiqué)

I’d post more but “Dire Straits” songs can be quite long.  I really like the song “Telegraph Road” but it is over 14 minutes long, skip it if you like.


Hahahaha!  Finger Eleven shared a video from when they were called “Rainbow Butt Monkeys”


Myles Kennedy: The Making of “Year of the Tiger” documentary on www.youtube.com


Also ‘Alter Bridge’ will be releasing a concert DVD/Blu-ray later this year!!!!!


Courtney Love involved in altercation with ex-son-in-law?


I said it would be released on the 25th on the previous post, sorry.  New ‘Halestorm’ will be released on Friday, July 27th.  Preorder on iTunes now.

The more you share this, the more readers I get.  No, I’m not profiting from this in any way.  I can’t tell who’s reading this but thank you!
