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

I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the album “Concrete & Gold”

I exercised to “Pink” the recent album “Hurts 2B Human”

 

My family was told, in 1999, that cancer is not genetic, WHAT?  Why were my mother & my aunt told to get regular mammograms after my grandmother died of stage 2 breast cancer?  My grandmother died of breast cancer, my grandfather died with cancer everywhere, my aunt died of breast cancer, & I got stage 4 brain cancer.  Odd that 4 people on my mother’s side of the family, including me, all had cancer since it’s not genetic?  Tell me another story, preferably a non-fiction story, because I’m not buying this one.

My grandfather died near the end of my time at the Wascana Rehabilitation Center.  Oddly enough he was just around the corner from the room I was in of the Pasqua hospital.  My grandmother was there as well in 1999.  Other than my aunt, 3 people in my family have been there.

Grandpa was full of cancer & had Alzheimer’s.  I often wonder if Alzheimer’s was why he never said anything about his health or if he felt anything wrong?  The nurses & doctors were FANTASTIC there.  So please don’t think that I’m putting any blame on them.

3 brain surgeries, & my odds of coming out of a coma were 5% – 15%.  4 weeks later I was awake.  I got really lucky!  1 week of an induced coma & 3 weeks of me being in a non-induced coma.

I’m assuming that with new technology they may now have found that it is genetic?

 

New “Evanescence” in 2020?

System of a Down news.  New album from the group stuck in limbo for now.

This is VERY impressive from a 9 year old!

This is only my personal opinion.  TV streaming sites are great.  The actors don’t complain about being under paid.  I’m not sure where the money comes from, but I’ve never heard an actor complain about their lack of payment.  They’re not complaining, neither am I.  Here’s the second part of this topic.

Yes, I used Napster for a bit, & torrents later on.  The albums I got from torrents, I actually bought CDs for most of them, if not all of them.  Now Apple will not allow any CDs or third party files on their music player.  Why?  Most musicians are complaining about not being paid for their work.  Remember when the U.S.A. government was shut down & federal employees weren’t getting paid.  Why was that so terrible, but nobody seems to care about musicians getting paid?

I use iTunes & pay the for each $9.99 album.  If I had the money & physical space I’d buy vinyl.  Do I ever dream of being of being a working musician?  I used to, but not if I bring in pennies for music & depend on people buying merchandise, oh & that cancer thing too.

Musicians aren’t retail sellers at a clothing store, they make music.  Somebody will see this & say “They charge so much for a concert ticket though.  That’s why I stream music.”  That’s fine if you prefer to stream it or not, that’s a personal decision.  When you use the price of a concert ticket as a reason for streaming, you’re telling me you have or will see every concert by every musician you listen too?

 

MATCHBOX TWENTY

I have 2 of their 6 albums.  Good albums, but total 90s generic radio rock with a lot of pop thrown into the mix.  I was a teenager in the 90s.  This was the music that was right up my alley at the time.  Even though I may not listen to it much, Matchbox Twenty were a BIG part of my musical upbringing.  I did get to see them live on one tour that passed through Regina.

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! Word of mouth is the only way of promoting this.
