Do you have a question about stage 4 brain cancer? Ask if you do!
I fell asleep to “Live” the album “Throwing Copper”, followed by “Mark Morton” his solo album “Anesthetic”
I exercised to “Corrosion of Conformity” the album “Wiseblood”
Friday’s post on here will be later than usual. “Mid-afternoon” or later.
I was up at 8:00 am on Monday & got straight to my exercises. I usually listen to music, but we forgot to put the remote on the charger overnight. Kim comes home at the end of the day & we hunker down to watch “The Ellen Degeneres Show” only to find the Toronto Raptors celebration parade was recorded in it’s place. I purposely set it to record on a Canadian channel to avoid so many “Breaking News” alerts about mass shootings in America. A couple of years ago it was a weekly occurrence. I’ve never really been a basketball fan & I didn’t hop on the Raptors wagon. Good for them, but not in my list of interests.
It’s been a quiet week thus far. The next couple of days could be “EXTREME”LY busy?
I beat cancer & that’s GREAT! Still annoying with the appointments. Beats the alternative though. My (cancer) doctors are always asking how I am, but with a head tilt in a really sympathetic voice. I’m fine, but it’s getting old at this point. I wish they would treat me like a “normal” patient. They all did & are doing their job VERY well!
Going to the cancer clinic here is a routine now for me every year. That’s not a typical routine for most people, it’s annoying, but again, I guess it’s a pretty good tradeoff for being alive & well.
I don’t really feel like a cancer survivor………………..until someone asks me how I’m doing. Not that I expect them not to ask. I’m just tired of being treated differently. Nobody’s fault at all, but it’s been over a decade since I had cancer. I’d likely ask the same thing. I guess the iPatch, wheelchair, & my speech are a giveaway. Ah well.
I’ve almost completely abandoned my pushups & tricep lifts. Tuesdays & Thursdays are now just stretching, yoga, & weights. They’re totally different muscles though. I might throw in 100 pushups on those days? Different muscles, but still working my arms on those days, we’ll see what happens next week?
I don’t know of any fans of “Ghost”. Anybody that’s anticipating new music from them will have to wait until 2020.
It must take quite a while to finish a professional release? Sum 41, Big Wreck, Chevelle, Alter Bridge, & Tool, all say they’re done recording. I have 2 Sum 41, 2 Big Wreck singles, & one song from The Agonist from a future album. Anthrax, Megadeth, & Pearl Jam are said to be releasing new material this year also. I’m a bit worried they’ll all just unleash their albums all at the same time.
I don’t have Big Wreck on preorder. A recent death in the band easily explains the hold up of a release though.
July = Sum 41, August = Tool maybe, October = Alter Bridge, & September = The Agonist.
Dave Mustaine, former lead guitarist Metallica & now singer/guitarist/founder of Megadeth has been diagnosed with throat cancer. His doctors have a plan that has a 90% success rate.
If I can survive stage 4 brain cancer (5-15% chance of coming out of a coma). I’m likely to think Dave Mustaine can beat throat cancer with a 90% success rate of surviving!
Dave Mustaine seems very driven to release a new Megadeth album despite his throat cancer diagnoses. We’ll see, I wouldn’t blame if it didn’t come out this year.
“The Batman” villains in 2021?
Article/interview with Alter Bridge regarding new album & European tour dates.
Big Wreck announced tour dates. A few in the Maritimes, & the rest throughout America.
WHAT??????? Facebook bans Led Zeppelin art work for the album “Houses of the Holy”. I would think a band like “Cannibal Corps” would be the first target if they’re doing this?
ASCOT ROYALS (revised)
I made a mistake last time I wrote about them. They’re not done! I found a single on iTunes just after the previous blog about them. This is the group I saw opening for Big Wreck a few years ago on their “Grace Street” tour at the Casino in town. I thought they were REALLY good. A bit softer than Big Wreck, they fit together very well though.
Single released in 2018 EVIL I KNOW
I’ll correct my mistakes on here it just might take a while before I notice them.
