CT-SCAN

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Meg Myers”.

 

CAT-Scan early this morning 8:45 am. Two more appointments this year, then I’ll have to see my family doctor for medication refills once or twice next year. Just routine doctor appointments for any cancer patient.

 

Can’t wait for the condo meeting at the end of this month! I’ll be saying “Nay, nay, nay, nay, etc.” many times. I should probably add a “whip” or 2 for good measure!

I’d go to see “Dixie Chicks” but I don’t live near Toronto or Vancouver. Here’s their 2016 American tour schedule. One of the very few country acts I enjoy.

CONDO LIFE

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Chevelle”. 7 albums on shuffle!

 

I didn’t even know “Chevelle” existed until last year when I borrowed a large collection from James last year!

 

Living in a condo has it’s pros & cons. “I’ve got 4 walls around me” a roof over my head, one of 2 washrooms that work (plumber coming this week to fix a leaky pipe). Nice comfortable bed, nice office area, nice paint, laminate floors, everything is great. The only two issues I have are we payed a butt load of money (thanks to our parents for helping us out), but it’s the condo board’s rules? We paid for our suite, what happens in here should be our rules? The other minor issue is the lazysusan cupboard. The cabinet makers measured wrong. It’s fine except the bottom hinge on that stationary cupboard falls apart. We took possession in December 2013. We have a 5 year warranty on the building. The hinge broke again the other night. Why do we have to continue fixing their mistake? I say our warranty is running out, we should have them fix their mistake before the warranty runs out? We don’t need to be rude about it, just tell them “Hey, this hinge keeps falling apart, please make it a functional cupboard”.

 

Beer & Alcohol DEFINITELY make you fat. Isn’t alcohol in general full of sugar? You sit down to have a beer or glass of wine at the end of the day, maybe you have 1 & it turns into 2? That’s a TON of extra calories. I don’t touch alcohol until Friday & Saturday, & I don’t drink to get hammered. I drink for the taste. After 2 drinks each Friday & Saturday I usually call it quits, on the odd occasion I’ll max out at 4 one night. I exercise Monday through Friday. Guess what? I may have lost 45lbs but I still have a beer belly. It’s getting smaller but it’s still there!

Oh, John Oliver!! Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. LANGUAGE!!!!

I’ve never joined a fantasy sports league. I did help out my sister-in-law with an office hockey pool, since neither her or her husband watch hockey. I just watch the highlights on TSN. I was a part of a facebook page where you’d just pick the winning team of 4 CFL games a weekend. That’s as close as I ever got to a fantasy league.

 

I guess we can add “The Deftones” to the list of bands that have canceled the rest of their tour due to the attack in Paris.

If Scott Weiland wants to return to the “Stone Temple Pilots” that would be great. I think he’d have to kick the drugs & alcohol first before the other 3 members would let him back?

ED SHEERAN

Please come to the site so you don’t miss anything!!!

So Brewster gets up to pee at 12:45am, I was still up watching TV. I let him out on the balcony to do his buisness & I’m not allowed to do that? At 12:45am do I get his harness & leash out and on him to take him outside while being noisy or do I quietly open a door in “OUR” suite to let him go to the washroom? He’s just over 9 years old beyond mid-life for a dog his size. “You can’t teach an old dog new trick”. If that’s true, he’s trained to go to the balcony door, or get our attention & lead us to what he wants or needs. Food, water, outside, or to play with one of his toys.

If anyone in the condo complains about anything other than him making noise, I’ll invite them in for cookies & tea so we can discuss the matter & come to a reasonable agreement.

Foo Fighters cancel tour dates because of Dave Grohl’s broken leg.
http://consequenceofsound.net/2015/06/foo-fighters-cancel-tour-dates-due-to-dave-grohls-broken-leg/

I agree, GET IT, if you like heavy music! When they say they’ve got “Wolfie” they mean Wolfgang VAN HALEN on bass!

2 year old hears “Rage Against the Machine” for the first time on “Guitar Hero” & rocks out!

OK we’ll talk about the Elephant in the room, Ed Sheeran. I like him & his music. I don’t know him personally, from what I’ve seen of him being interviewed there’s no reason to not like him. Saturday night he played at The Brandt Center. One of the perks of being in a wheelchair, we got tickets. They sold out really quick. Physically handicapped seating has never sold out at a concert I’ve been to in a wheelchair. We get an awesome parking spot, & we have always been able to get tickets to a show that we want to go to.

Finger Eleven is advertising their new album repeatedly on social media.

As for my statement on Facebook, I’m not trying to be rude at all but it’s difficult to follow my 1000+ likes & 7 people while 293 people are set to just email. It becomes time consuming & I don’t even have to go to work?! I write these blogs that were started for me to update people on what I experienced during my time in the hospital, that’s why I was all over social media after 4.5 years in the hospital. So I’m here for email & my blog. Other than to find people from the past or “follow” your friends, how often do you message people? Maybe 10% of the time? Same here, I did that too. I had something to sell. First, the band I was in, now this blog. Am I using facebook the right way? I don’t know? I’ve set 95% of you, or more, to facebook messages only. Why? Because nobody has time to receive status updates from more than 10 people. I mean no disrespect to anyone but I am on facebook & it’s for email & to find out what my preferred music artists are up to. Read the blog please. Consider this my status update on Facebook? I’m fine. I’m in a wheelchair & I have a patch over my left eye to prevent double vision. I survived cancer. I’m here & it certainly beats the alternative! Everyday is a little bit better (physically) than the day before. I’m also a music junkie! If you haven’t guessed that yet.

Ed Sheeran is great live, he did nothing wrong, he was Ed Sheeran. Played his songs & a few songs that likely inspired him.

Ed Sheeran played my favourite Stevie Wonder song! AWESOME! The arena in Regina holds a small number of people, like 6000 roughly maybe more I’m not sure, I could check on google but I’m lazy. We got tickets we we’re in, I got to see/hear Ed Sheeran live! The opening act “Rixton” plays I’ve never heard of them. Cool new band for me to see/hear. I didn’t really care for their music. They didn’t do anything wrong. They played their songs, they were full of energy & they did their job, warmed up the crowd, great so far no harm no foul.

Sound is wound up to the point that everything is distorted. That’s fine, the venue is built for junior hockey nothing to do with music, the person doing live sound is probably 150′ away from me, I’m in a wheelchair. I’m on the main level, that person is on the floor. When I go to a concert I like to be by the sound board, since that’s where it will sound the best. I can’t always do that, nobody’s fault.

So we’re in a large concrete venue, sacrificing sound for a venue that holds the most people possible in the city. That’s fine, par for the course. There’s a show in Regina we have to drive to it,15 minutes away, GREAT, it’s not the 2.5 hours in a car on the way to Saskatoon.

They finish, lights come back, roadies flip the stage for Ed.

What did bother me were the 5500 people videoing 50% of the show on their cell phone. “Do you want to watch the concert now or in a few hours when you get home on your 6” x 3” cell phone screen, where the audio will likely be worse?” I know that there will be multiple cell phones at every concert. So go ahead take a photo or 2, take a video of your favourite song, then put your phone away. You paid what to see/hear this live concert & you’d rather watch it & record it on your cell phone? Wait for the concert DVD or blu-ray. It will sound & look better than the $60+ version on your phone & it wont cost more than $40.

I/Kim have paid the same price as you & I don’t own or want a cell phone, personal choice. You’ve got one great, cool. It’s called common courtesy. “Hey am I or my cell phone blocking your view?” “Yes you are actually could you please move 8” so I can see the stage”. Maybe I should have said something, but they likely wouldn’t understand me, my voice is very quiet & I’m difficult to understand at the best of times.

What did I think of the concert? I got to see Ed Sheeran live! It wasn’t what I expecting it to be. I watched half of it through an able bodied stranger’s cell phone 8′ away from me. If your cell phone is more interesting than what’s happening right now, why are you here? Good grief, you obviously don’t have the tine or desire to be here, you’re doing something “better” on your mobile device.

Songs I like. “Iron Maiden” Since we’re on the topic of “Ed Sheeran” he’s covered Iron Maiden! Iron Maiden are a metal group. Almost every metal fan wants to put every metal group in to a some type of sub genres of metal. That’s cool these guys fit into the “Power Metal” genres & that’s how metal fans/music fans are. Great! I personally don’t do that. There’s Metal, Rock, Country, Rap, Disco, Electronic, Pop, Classical.

Megadeth cover on acoustic guitar.

I really like “Limblifter” but it’s on a Wednesday night. No good for me.

Buzz Osbourne is ticked with the ‘Montage of Heck’ movie. I think he’s ticked that his grunge band ‘The Melvin’s’ didn’t reach the success of Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Smashing Pumpkins, Foo Fighters, etc. He pop’s up from time to time whining & complaining about these groups. His band is still going but very few know of them or their music. Take a hint “Buzz”?

Big Wreck live!

I tend to gush all over Big Wreck & Foo Fighters. I pee a bit when I see a concert or hear of a new album on the horizon!

More Ian Thornley demoing gear!

Him, Myles Kennedy & Dave Grohl are my musical Son, Spirit & The Holy Ghost! Myles sings back up on this Big Wreck tune!

If they reboot “Jaws”, I’ll rent it. Anything else, I’m good really! I’ve got a special edition of the original “Jaws” DVD & I love it. Please don’t ruin the franchise, they already did that with the II, III & IV sequels I rented years ago, on DVD, at a Blockbuster.

“Cauterize” by Tremonti do you have it & do you like it? I don’t do reviews, I just tell you what I’m really into! For hard rock /border line metal fans grab “Cauterize” by Tremonti & “Screaming Bloody Murder” by Sum 41.
http://www.guitarworld.com/mark-tremonti-premieres-cauterize-playthrough-video-exclusive

https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/screaming-bloody-murder/id427041306 This was released in 2011 & it’s really good!

https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/cauterize/id994986717

Got this with my iTunes pre-order, yes I pay for music? Weird I know? If the big name groups from the ’90s & earlier on made millions of dollars & lived in fancy houses with 14 fancy cars, why can’t the musicians of today have the same thing? I don’t know how most streaming sites work other than the new apple site. $9.99/month for music you don’t truly own. To me that sounds a lot like this? “You’re paying to listen to a radio”! You don’t own the music you’re basically renting it every month with Apple’s streaming service. I pay for each album/song I have & I don’t have to worry about “renting” it tomorrow or the next month. I pay for it & I’m assuming the money isn’t going to the right place 97% of the time. $2-$13 is really going to kill you for 1 album? I don’t have an excessive amount of money. If Kim says “Whoa! Hold up!” cool, I’ll wait. LANGUAGE IN THE SECOND LINK!!!!

Finger Eleven’s new album on iTunes
https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/five-crooked-lines/id999975916

Right now I’m all over the place with my music. I always fit recently purchased music in to my day. “Silverball” by Barenaked Ladies, “Drones” by Muse & “Cauterize” by Tremonti.
http://www.q1043.com/onair/jonathan-jc-clarke-1368/watch-muses-christopher-wolstenholme-discusses-direction-13671167/

I know what I like, now you tell me what you like? If I’ve heard it, I’ll let you know. I’m always on the look out for good new music. I don’t judge, I’m not a music snob. Anyone could come to me & say “WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU LISTENING TO THAT CRAP FOR????!!!”. Because I like it? Good enough for me.

Mark Tremonti is doing a lot of interviews for this new album! It’s worth it if you like this music!

If you live in the area here’s ticket’s for a festival. “Our Lady Peace”, Collective Soul”, “Finger Eleven”, etc.
http://www.soundofmusic.ca/tickets

New lineup for “Smashing Pumpkins”……………………again. I think they had more lineup changes than Foo Fighters?
http://consequenceofsound.net/2015/06/smashing-pumpkins-have-a-new-lineup-once-again/

Here’s Mark Tremonti’s title track from the new album.

Just got word our 12.5 pound dog can’t poop or pee on his pad on our balcony. Why? Who is this effecting other than Kim & I who have to clean it up? Does this mean I can poop & pee on our balcony? Our roof, everyone else’ rules. I didn’t know our 3′ x 10′ balcony that nobody goes on to other than our guests was considered a “common area”? I think I’ll roll up & down the hallway naked shouting 4 letter words, with my middle fingers held high for all to see & see if Brewster’s poop & pee is that big of a deal?

Songs I like. “Iommi” I bought it on CD the day it was released. Good thing because you can’t find it anywhere. There is an album on iTunes titled “Iommi” but it’s not the same one. This is a Tony Iommi solo album with a different singer on each song.





Henry Rollins, Dave Grohl, Phil Anselmo, Ozzy, Billy Corgan, Serj Tankian (after the first SOAD release), etc.
