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

5 days of exercise total; 400 pushups, 600 leg lifts, 300 crunches, 300 tricep lifts, 450 squats, 300 back flexes.

Our universal remote is doing sketchy stuff again on the charger.  I listen to 2 or 3 albums last night so I’ll use them here I guess.

I fell asleep to “Into Eternity” the album “The Sirens”, “Lenny Kravitz” the album “Mama Said”, & “Lenny Kravitz” his “Greatest Hits”

 

There were 2 things I was terrified of while I was in the WRC.  1 near the beginning of 2009 & the other near the end of thing in 2012.  A tilt table & then a wobble board, both a part of my occupational therapy

My 2 therapists would come to my room & have me lay on the tilt table.  A small step to “stand” on at one end for my feet & nothing else but Velcro straps for my ankles, legs, waist, & chest.  Once I was strapped in they’d tilt the table from 180 degrees to 90 degrees so I was in a standing position.  I remember the one time I was freaking out, my occupational therapist said “That’s only 70 degrees?”  I replied “That’s enough for me!”  I was SO glad that only lasted a few weeks.  She’d bring a bouncy ball to play catch with while I was upright.  I think I made it to 90 degrees eventually?

The other one was called a wobble board, to activate my abs.  Even after the 1,000s of crunches & leg lifts I still don’t think I could do that.  It’s a board you sit on but on the bottom it’s not flat, it’s half of a ball.  She’d raise the table so my feet weren’t touching the ground.  Then she would go behind me & randomly push or pull me in different directions.  All about working on my abs so they’d kick in & help me stay upright, no, my hands were not allowed to touch anything.  I hated that thing, I would go to the therapy room & immediately beg her to not do the wobble board that day.  I was still fairly weak at that point, but she never let me fall.

 

I REFUSE TO STREAM MUSIC!!!!  APPLE, PLEASE DON’T SCREW THIS UP!!!  I DOWNLOAD ONLY OR ELSE I’M LEFT WITH BUYING VERY FEW RECORDS!  NO PHYSICAL SPACE & I CAN’T AFFORD A TON OF THEM!!!!

 

So they’re just making a “better” mouse trap for streaming music?

Is Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee angry or broke?

 

New track from the upcoming “In Flames” album “I, The Mask”

 

The music industry is the scientist & we’re the lab rats.  Stop trying to be like everyone else by buying the other companies & maybe try taking a different path, that way you might learn something?  I don’t think many people are happy with the status quo?

THE SMASHING PUMPKINS

“The group that grunge forgot” says singer Billy Corgan.  Is that necessarily a bad thing?  If so, why?  He’s still a working musician, probably making more money than he needs, with less fan fair.  You’d think it would be nice in that situation?  If you’re a working musician making music that you like, great!  You shouldn’t need/want to be the center of attention all of the time.  If you like what you’re doing & millions of other people do, that’s more than enough right there.

I don’t think I have all of their albums but I have quite a few?

 

1991   GISH

 

1993   SIAMESE DREAM

 

1995   MELON COLLIE & THE INFINIT SADNESS (DOUBLE ALBUM)

 

1998   ADORE

 

2000   MACHINA/The Machines of God

From here on my CDs & iTunes are all fluffernutted.  There is a “GREATEST HITS” in here that I got from my brother years ago for Christmas.

 

2014   MONUMENTS TO AN ELEGY

 

2018   SHINY OH SO BRIGHT VOL. 1/ LP: NO PAST.  NO FUTURE.  NO SUN.

I think this is FAKE NEWS.  I don’t rely on www.yahoo.com for news, it seems more like tabloid news.  Outfielder & free agent Bryce Harper is 26 years old, he’s asking for a 10 year deal for $500,000,000.  My issues with that are, nobody in their right mind will sign any player for 10 years.  It’s usually 5 or 6 years.  My 2nd issue is the Toronto Blue Jays have 4 or 5 young guys coming to spring training competing for the 1 outfield position left & they won’t break the bank.  My 3rd issue is $50 million a year nobody will sign him for that much money a year, is he delusional?  Last year the San Francisco Giants had the largest pay roll in baseball at $221,430,000 so he thinks he’ll take roughly a 2/5 of that each year?  Good luck with that one!  He’ll hit 35-45 homeruns, but I’d be out for sure.  Not my money though.  He’s such a catch, I wonder why nobody has signed him yet?  Pitchers & catchers report to Spring Training on Valentine’s Day!

 

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!
