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

I fell asleep to “Lacuna Coil” the album “Broken Crown Halo”

I exercised to “Reignwolf aka Jordan Cook” from Saskatoon his first full album that I’m undecided if I’ll purchase.  “Hear me Out”


5 day exercise total.  I actually lowered 3 totals too much, the numbers are wonky this week.  There will be regular numbers for each exercise next week….I hope!

220 pushups, 600 leg lifts, 300 crunches, 220 tricep lifts, 340 squats, 300 back flexes.

Pushups & tricep lifts are done on Tuesdays & Thursday.  Everything else is on Mondays, Wednesdays, & Fridays.


Some might think I’m scared of being dead, not so.  I am sacred of how I’ll die though.  Even though I was told, long after the fact, that my cancer would’ve likely came back in 2013.  That obviously didn’t happen, thank goodness!  I exercise a lot but there’s not much to exercise my brain with.  Other than baseball & word search puzzles.  I’ll likely get some actual puzzles in the near future.

Kim has taught me how to use our stove & oven, I’m still a little iffy with our pressure cooker & I’ve never used our popcorn maker.  I’ve got microwave popcorn until that day comes.

I’m not mentally handicapped, just physically handicapped.  If I need my wife to teach me how to use an appliance I just ask, or try to figure it out on my own if it won’t burn me.



The DC movies are trying to fix the DC universe.

From what I’ve been told, the next season of Criminal Minds will be 10 episodes for the SERIES finale.  My favourite show on TV.  15th & final season

Modern Family was supposed to end after this, it’s 10th season but they’re not done.  There will be an 11th season.  I’ve heard that it will also be a 10 episode season.

Skip to the 5:00 minute point in the video.

I’m more than anxious for this album to be released!  That will make 6 fantastic albums for me this year!

Why do I prefer iTunes in comparison to streaming music?  Here’s a few reasons.  I prefer to own my music.  I believe that if anyone has done something for you or something you appreciate, they should be paid.  A song is made by the artist who pays $100s if not $1000s to book a studio & a producer to record just 1 song, the song will then be sold for a fraction of a cent, iTunes isn’t much better though, I can buy a 10 song album for $9.99.  Streaming music might be the real issue.  Jack White of “The White Stripes” stated a few years ago that he has limited funds & can’t afford to tour as much.  More bands/artist need to have money to go on tour.  If they’re not selling their albums, how are they supposed to go on tour?  Finally, it just doesn’t feel right.  I had a ton of music that I downloaded illegally & didn’t feel right about it & ended up buying the CDs & iTunes files for these reasons.

I do like the album “The State” by Nickelback that was released in 2000.  I don’t hate their music.  If Nickelback is playing over the P. A. system in a restaurant or bar & it’s a song I don’t like, I’ll wait 5 minutes for something else to come on.


DREAM THEATER   (Distance Over Time)

This is probably the first band that comes to mind for metal fans when they hear the words “progressive metal”.  They released their 13th studio album on February 22nd, 2019.  Reminds me of older Dream Theater stuff with the exception of being just under 1 hour long.  Their last album “The Astonishing” was really not very good.  34 songs as a double album.  I think they went for more quantity than quality on that one?  This new album “Distance Over Time” is much more familiar to fans of the group, in a good way.  Familiar but also new & refreshing.

The singer doesn’t growl or scream.  He’s a classically trained singer with a great voice!  They’re all classically trained actually.   Here’s a few songs from this new album….
