I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “In Waves”

I exercised to “Foo Fighters” the double album “In Your Honor”

I eat much healthier now.  I pay more attention as to what I’m putting into my body.  You’d mark the calendar when I’d drink water it was so rare.  Now I drink 2.1 liters at least 5 days a week.  I eat more fruit & vegetables too.  I guess I am trying to lose some weight so I can fit into my old T-Shirts.  I was down to 199 pounds during my time in the WRC, I graduated high school at 185.  I lost 2” on my waist.  I lost that weight since I was doing 3 different types of rehabilitation therapy, 17 times a week at the peak of it.  Each therapy session would last 45-60 minutes.  All of that time I ate junk food & couldn’t gain any weight.

We’d come home in the evening then return to the WRC to sleep, since I had exercise therapy at 9:30 am.  I was on methadone, an addictive pain killer that is given to heroin addicts in replace of the heroin.  It must cause people who take it to have a desire for sugar.  I’d get Timbits or a doughnut on the way back to the WRC.  Jason Mewes, Jay of Jay & Silent Bob, was a heroin addict who would go to a methadone clinic every morning, followed immediately by a drive to get a sugary donut.

I’d have either a donut, Timbits, or many Blue Whales every day.  I still eat junk from time to time.  I just don’t have it nearly as much as I used to.  I don’t believe in ‘dieting’.  It works for some people, but I just don’t find them to be realistic.  I drink alcohol but I’m good with 2 drinks Friday & 2 drinks on Saturdays.  If I have more, I’m beyond the point of no return, might as well keep going!

 

THAT’S ALL FOR CANCER TALK!  HERE COMES THE POPCULTURE STUFF! 

 

I have no albums preordered for this month, I thought July could be very quiet as far as any happenings in the music world?

 

Top 30 grunge albums of all time.  For you young hipsters, that’s what alternative rock or hard rock was called in the ‘90s.

http://loudwire.com/top-grunge-albums-all-time/

 

I made a boo boo.  I bought an album & 2 Eps by “Blameshift” as well as the 8 song album by “Halflives”.  Then I realized the 2 bands were quite similar?!

 

Yeah, even Ian Thornley admitted that there was a HUGE Led Zeppelin vibe on this tune!

 

Dude REALLY!  I don’t play my metal music around Kim, & she doesn’t listen to her country music around me, it’s called compromising.  If someone doesn’t like my music I’ll turn it down or off as much as I don’t want to.  Metal music can easily be offensive, probably more so than any other genres.  You don’t have to give it up, just tone it down.  You don’t have to choose between loving someone else or giving up an interest/hobby!

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Even now that I can’t drive, I go to metal shows with my brother or rock shows with my dad.  Kim goes to country music shows with her friends or I go with her to see the odd act that I like.

 

This can’t be real?  We would have heard something about it.  Release 2019.

 

Why people hate Nickelback, proved by science?  There are thousands of people who like Nickelback!  Whatever ‘science’ this is, I disagree.  I’m not a Nickelback fan, but I also don’t need to dump on them or their fans!

 

9 year old girl from Singapore sings a song from 1959 & she’s AWESOME!

Yep, Friday night watching baseball on the couch in a +26 Celcius home.  Before watching the game, we we’re out running some errands, I was trying to avoid being here.  I can’t stand the heat.  In the winter we aren’t allowed to turn on the air.  Our windows all face south though.  Even with the blinds closed +25 Celcius is quite common.  I wait for the summer to blast the air & keep the house at +22, even though it’s too hot to have bare feet on our balcony.  We don’t have a furnace, it’s water heat, a boiler & forced air for the A/C.  The cooler is on the roof & the blower is in our laundry room.

I think the A/C has a mind of it’s own?  It’s Saturday morning, tried turning the A/C on & it works!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Must be the weather.  I’ve heard a fair bit of thunder the last few days & my parents have lost power from time to time, I don’t know what the deal is?

To finish off Saturday, Kim ran a 5km run with a couple of friends.  I stayed home with Brewster, bad anxiety problems, & the run was very early in the morning.  Kim picked us up, we dropped Brewster off at my parents & met our friends for lunch, grabbed some beer at Willow Park, fancy beer, strawberry beer one bottle is enough since it’s so sweet.  We came home & we were exhausted, had a snooze.  Me on the couch & Kim on the love seat.  Woke up, had supper, & watched some “Modern Family”.

Sundays are our get ready for the week.  Kim will get some groceries, I’ll cook some fish for my lunches, make a pitcher of juice of blended fruit & vegetables, & Kim likely has some laundry to get to.

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today.

 

I think Trump is constantly pushing everyone he can, just so he can make the rules to push everyone away.  After I posted the Friday blog, I watched CNN for a bit.  He’s pulled the USA out of Paris’ climate deal.

Many of you probably didn’t see the press briefing Friday morning.  The press asked 3 different times if Trump believed in climate change.  After 3 separate individuals asked & all received the same political answer it was as clear as mud.  Whoever that was, it’s a simple yes or no question.  I would ask “Does the President believe in climate change?  Please reply with a yes or no answer.”  If he just responds with the same political garbage answer, I’d let it rest.

How did Trump see the photo Kathy Griffin posted of his severed head?  Doesn’t Trump call CNN “fake news”?  Did Kathy Griffin act alone?  Who took the picture?  Was it on social media or on TV?  How did everyone see it?

I’m guessing former FBI leader Comey is a moving target until he takes the stand during the trial on Thursday.  I’d hate to be in his shoes right now, constantly looking over his shoulder.

 

Still want to slam the DC Comic movies?

The story of Radiohead’s “OK Computer”.  Foo Fighters were on tour with them as Radiohead wrote this classic album.  Foo Fighters’ drummer, Taylor Hawkins, said in an interview that he’d watch their 2 hour sound check as they would argue & write this album.

No, it’s just metal.  Sub-genres are just a lot of ballyhoo & non-sense to me, thrash, death, melodic death, power, grind core, progressive, etc.  It’s metal you like some of it or not.  Have you ever heard anyone say “Progressive Soft Rock?”

Friday evening, I watched the baseball game while slightly intoxicated.  It felt like an 18 day work week to me.  I needed to cut loose somewhat.  I don’t even work at a real job, I was just exercising as normal.

Best part of the weekend thus far is as of Saturday after the Jays game they have won 4 games straight & have won 7 of their last 10 games with 7/25 of their everyday roster being on the disabled list.  2 of them are expected back this week.  At the moment they have $85 million not playing due to injury.

As for mother’s day, BBQ burgers are what mom’s craving.  Unfortunately Kim’s mom lives a few hours away.  Happy mother’s day to my mother-in-law.  Sorry I won’t be on here much this weekend as usual.  Especially this weekend, very busy!

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today.

 

Kim & I will be binge watching “13 Reasons Why” on Netflix.  If you haven’t started watching it, what’s wrong with you?  Hahahahahahaha!

We’ve already watched the first season of “Riverdale” on Netflix.  It’s an original Netflix show, but it airs on the CW channel before that episode is on Netflix?  It’s the characters of the Archie Comics in a murder mystery show.

I’ve listened to the new Paramore album “After Laughter”.  It has a distinct 1980s pop sound throughout the album, in a good way.  It’s a light summertime album.  I really like it!  Each song is different.  They don’t get any praise from me the first listen, but by the time I’ve heard them 3 times I’m hooked!  Reminds me off the “Fine Young Cannibals” album “The Raw & The Cooked”!  I love that album also.

 

Tool, I think we’ll have to wait the entire 10,000 days from the release of “10,000 Days” in 2006.  The good news, we’ve been waiting 10 years already only 17.3 years to go!!!!!!!!!!

 

25 years ago.  Pearl Jam’s MTV unplugged

 

I don’t waste my time & energy hating a band.  I just choose not to listen to certain bands such as AC/DC, Nickelback, Theory of a Deadman, Metallica, KISS, Guns n’ Roses, etc.  If you like them, it’s all good with me.  I like Motorhead & they’re band where each song sounds similar, I just prefer their sound.  I only have 4 of their albums & 2 of them are greatest hits albums.  I don’t need anymore, they’re all very similar

 

 

As for the Rush comment on the previous post.  I like Rush, just has to be post 1985 for me.

Yes, we went out for a fancy supper Thursday night for our 10th anniversary with my parents, grandparents, & Mitch & Rachel. Thanks to my parents & grandparents for supper at The Cottage restaurant! Bottle of wine for the table, escargot for my appetizer, prawns & scallops for my meal. Kim can’t stand the smell of fish/seafood so I rarely get to eat that stuff! I DO LOVE KIMMY!

I wanted to go to this Saturday night put on by the RSO we had other/better plans by the time I heard about it. The song is over an hour long. You know it, it’s in most epic movie trailers. I sang this with my high school choir in Newfoundland in the summer after grade 11. Pretty cool experience that I’ll never forget! Multiple choirs from all around the world! Just listen to it for a bit & I’m sure you’ll recognize it. You’ll be all “HEY, IT’S THAT SONG FROM THAT MOVIE TRAILER!!”
