I fell asleep to “Pearl Jam” the album “Ten”

Just stretching to “Soundgarden” the album “Badmotorfinger”

 

Yes, I’m feeling better, I just have an annoying cough that I can’t shake off.  My chiropractor saw my MRI.  He said I could have surgery ASAP or leave it until later on.  My leg & back feel fine right now, but I’ll see the surgeon & have the surgery as soon as I can.  Why wait, let’s get it done & over with.

I chatting with a friend of mine who’s friend’s daughter was mugged & shot in the face.  The daughter is 24-25.  My friend was angry that something that stupid & random could even happen.  Kim & I watch The Ellen Degeneres Show every day.  First thing when Kim gets home from work.  I couldn’t find the author she had on the show Wednesday, but I tried to remember something the author said.  The author of the book had lost a young child.

I remember the author saying ‘Don’t ask if you can do something.  Just do something to help.  Don’t make them reach out to you.’  That really got to me, that’s what I told my friend.

I never thought of it that way?  I’ll remember that.  Of course they need help, anyone in that situation would.  The smallest thing can go a long way.

Nothing is certain in life other than “I know I was born & I know that I’ll die the in between is mine”

Sure, the in between is yours but there’s often random people or things that can mess with your life.  You have to learn how to deal with situations that arise.

I remember being in the hospital & people would ask me what I needed or wanted.  Cam & Michelle asked me what I needed.  I wanted to live, but that’s not what I asked for.  I asked for a copy of “Batman: The Dark Knight” that had recently been released.  My uncle in Airdrie, Alberta also asked what I needed I said ‘The Rick Mercer Report’ book.

I don’t know what I was thinking, the fact that they caught me awake was a shot in the dark!  I watched the movie in the hospital.  I tried to read the book but didn’t realize I had bad double vision.

I didn’t really know I had cancer with a very slim chance of surviving.  I figured I was maybe sleep deprived or something like that.  Corey brought me the 2nd Thornley album that he knew I was waiting for.  Laurie brought me 2 signed guitars, 1 signed by Ian Thornley for me, & 1 signed by Chad Kroeger of “Nickelback” to raffle off.

Those all may seem like little insignificant things, but they’re were all sincere & showed that they care.

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today.  Slow/Quiet week.  Stretching everyday & many routine appointments to come by the end of July.

 

I just googled release dates for 2017 that are confirmed, but yet to be recorded, I saw no Tool.  I did see A Perfect Circle though under the TBA section.

I fell asleep to “Walk off the Earth” the album “Sing it all Away”, followed by “Trivium” the album “Ascendency”

Just a lot of stretching this week to “Pentatonix” their new EP of covers “Vol. IV”

YAY, multiple doctor appointments set for me.  MRI, Cancer clinic, “sedatives” for the MRI (I’m extremely claustrophobic), blood work, & hopefully a cortisone shot as well.  Pretty much routine stuff other than the MRI & cortisone shot.  I hope to breeze through all of this, & get back to exercising!

A bit of a mixed up day.  My regular doctor is having surgery & is off until May.  I need to get a prescription from him before then for my MRI.

I see no Tool album in the near future?  Tool is touring & then A Perfect Circle plans to tour & record.  There’s only so much singer Maynard James Keenan can do.  I assume his 3rd band (Puscifer) & his vineyard are taking a backseat at the moment?

http://www.ticketmaster.com/venueartist/189126/707500?c=LNSM__LasVegas_APerfectCircle_fb_ss_040517

 

24 years ago Thursday, Tool released their first full length album “Undertow”.  Before that was a live EP and there has been 4 full length albums up to the 2006 release “10,000 Days”.  We are now on our 11th year of waiting for a follow up to “10,000 Days”.  As fans we’ve waited 3,747 + a few leap year days for a new release from Tool.  This means we have a few more decades to wait if the album is coming in “10,000 Days”!

Sorry, just found a new band, & they are quite new.  They’re called “Halflives”, just thought I’d keep you posted.  1 album out next Friday, & 3 singles.  All available on iTunes.

They remind me of “Paramore”.  Fairly pop but just a bit heavier, at least that’s how I’d describe them.

 

I got “Pentatonix” & “The Watchmen” this morning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Both are FANTASTIC!!!!!!

My mother has seen more than her fair share of people having cancer, especially since I was diagnosed in 2008.  Her mother died of breast cancer in December of 1999.  Since my diagnosis she’s seen many people not survive.  Our family friend who she met at work, our friend’s mother, my grandfather, my aunt, and another friend she met at work, & unfortunately her cousin has recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer recently as well.  I survived, I’m fine wheelchair & an eye patch, but I’m here!  I don’t think she needs anymore deaths to witness?  That list of people is more than enough!

People worry about me, too much sometimes.  When I eat, I HOOVER my food.  Sometimes I choke.  I had a rough day of chocking on food, & I was with my family.  I coughed & choked a few times.  I was fine & everyone was concerned.  I get it, that’s fine, annoying but fine.  This happens 1 or 2 times a week.  Everyone freaks out & in the end I’m OK.  Do people know that I also cough & “choke” at lunch when there’s nobody around?  I’m fine, please don’t worry about me.  If I hadn’t had cancer, I’d still be OK & people wouldn’t worry as much about me.  Hold my beer & watch this!

I did it!  I hit all of my goals, & even exceeded one to make up for my performance on Tuesday.  Things are getting better & better.

 

Not only did the Jays lose on Wednesday, & they’re done now for the year…………………..again!  We had a second power outage last night?  2 days in a row.  At least last night’s blackout was only 20 minutes long?  Baseball season is done for me.

Goodbye Jose Bautista at the very least.  I hope somebody offers you $20,000,000/year.  I’m not a general manager, even a qualifying offer of $17,800,000 seems like too much.  He talks too much, can’t really back it up, & has become a notorious whiner throughout this past season.  The Blue Jays will look different next year, hopefully younger too?

BRAIN CANCER vs. ALS

I’d do more but that’s a TON of links to load. Sorry if they double, I’ll try to fix them but no guarantee? My back is annoying but I increase my exercise to my “normal” total daily!

I fell asleep to 2 albums, the 2 most recent albums by “Candlebox” first “Love Stories & Other Musings” from 2012. Then the album “Disappearing in Airports” released in April of 2016. Woke up in the middle of the night to pee, gotta stop that, & put on “Chevelle” the new album “The North Corridor”

I exercised to “Portal” the album “Blood Red Tape” My brother was listening to them in his car when we were with him. I think he said they’re an independent group from Alberta?

They have 3 albums on iTunes at the moment. This is the only one I’ve purchased so far.

Brain cancer & ALS aren’t a competition. This is how I look at it though, in my situation. I could have survived or died because of brain cancer. I don’t know much about ALS. From what I know, it ends poorly, to put it lightly. Surviving brain cancer I can work on things, everything. You can look at that as overwhelming or just start somewhere & chip away at it as long as you can. ALS, from what I know, is more of a “OH MY GOODNESS! What’s going to go first?” Once it’s gone you can’t really do anything about it, that would be terrifying to me! Sure I felt overwhelmed & angry at first, but I’m alive, I can work on myself, mentally & physically. Eventually it COULD be fine? Sure the odds are stacked against me. Do you gamble? The odds are stacked against anyone in a casino playing any game. I’m alive, it could be worse.

I have to admit, after 2 weeks of just stretching & resting my back, it’s difficult to get back into my routine of exercise, food, blog, TV. For years that was easy, sweaty, but easy & somewhat gratifying. I had never enjoyed exercising, especially cardio! I can ride an exercise bike forever, walking with my walker seems like too much effort for very little gain to me. When I lived at my parents place the recumbent exercise bike was in the basement. I’d pop in a “Lord of the Rings” movie & pedal for 3 hours no problem, I can still bike for an hour or more.

I get that musicians want to share what influenced them by doing a cover song. I loved playing cover songs live! That meant I didn’t have to write lyrics, just remember better lyrics. Foo Fighters do this for the majority of their B Sides on singles. You get a single from the album, a live song & either a cover song or a song that was cut from the album. Here are some original songs followed by their cover song by someone else. Some are good, some are OK, some are terrible, & some are “OK, why mess with a classic?”

Almost forgot about this one!

^^All of this is just off the top of my head!

I don’t follow politics……….EVER! I was watching CBC, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, the National news. They were reporting on Donald Trump’s Republican Convention, I changed the channel to watch that instead. I haven’t watched any of the debates for more than 5 minutes. I watched the majority of this one though. I couldn’t stop laughing! I was even lol! My goodness he’s entertaining & scary at the same time. The entire speech was like watching a terrorist threaten another terrorist. I honestly couldn’t stop laughing! I watched it until the end & realized a couple of things. A) I should have been watching the campaign from the start just for the entertainment value! B) If he wins, it’ll be scary & the USA will be a gated community. Nobody’s coming from the Southern Boarder, the East Coast, China or Russia aren’t coming from the West Coast, & us Canadians will build a wall on our Southern Boarder & send the bill to the USA.

Friday was more of me trying to be comfortable with a screwed up back. I didn’t go to the football game. I don’t think it would have done any good sitting on a wooden bench for that amount of time. We babysat our friends kid, who politely told me where to go & how to get there! Kim was painting with her. Kim was painting a person flying a kite. I said we should blow to make some wind for “auntie” Kim, man was I wrong. “UNCLE CHRIS WE DON’T BLOW WIND, WE PAINT IT!!!” aka she told me in the most polite way where to go & how to get there, finger pointing & all.

So at the end of the day, I slept on the couch again, while Kim slept in our bed with someone else, a 2 ½ year old and I’m not sure if I’ll be invited to her 3rd birthday party.

Saturday was my aunts memorial in Regina. The family left the chapel to “Spirit in the Sky” I had finished my crying a week ago, I was OK. My mother did the eulogy at the service for her older sister, she of course choked up, then I choked up a bit too. The entire ceremony actually felt like a celebration. I’ve never felt that at a memorial/funeral? My aunt was really cool & fun to be around, & that’s exactly what I’ll remember about her!

Back to my parents place for a very excessive amount of food and whatever you brought for alcohol. I left with a food baby……and 1 beer……………….a 2 liter bottle of beer. It’s pretty rare to see your mother, uncle & cousins do a shot of tequila at the front of a chapel during a memorial, but I know that’s what my aunt would have wanted!

Now it’s Sunday & I have baseball to watch. Yes my back I still sore. I’ll finish this later.

I’d like to know if Jordan Cook aka Reignwolf will ever release a full album? I don’t buy singles unless there are 10 or more to make an album.
