I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the album “Concrete & Gold”, followed by the band “James” their “Greatest Hits” or the album “Laid” if you recognize it, it’s from the soundtrack of one of the “American Pie” movies.  Search for “James the band” if you like this

I exercised to “Matthew Good Band” the album “Underdogs”

When I went into the Wascana Rehabilitation Center I was on the 2nd floor initially.  Sometime in 2010 I was asked by a social worker if I’d switch rooms & go to the main floor.  The room I was in on the 2nd floor had oxygen for people that needed it.  I didn’t so I said “Yeah, no problem.”  The social worker was so relieved.  She was turned down by multiple people that refused to switch rooms.  I thought that was EXTREMELY odd?  People said “no” to changing rooms?  Same care on the first floor, really not a big deal at all.

I was genuinely shocked that anyone wouldn’t give up their room for someone else that needs it?  That’s still a vivid memory to me.

If you’re not using the oxygen that someone else needs, why not make things easier for another patient?  I think it may have more to do with people fearing change?  Most people avoid change & tend to think something different won’t be as good.

Even to this day I have to adapt to regular things.  The biggest question for me is if I can get into a place & if I can get to the washroom on my own.  Maybe I can, maybe I’ll need help until I figure it out, or maybe I can’t do it alone?

My parents’ washroom in the basement was tricky, I could do it, but it was tricky to do it.  They put in some grab bars for me & now it’s super easy for me!

Florida shootings.  I hope this will wake gun owners up!

I agree “thoughts & prayers” are doing anything.  Why is it that so many people are OK with reacting to a shooting & not being proactive to avoid the shooting?  Are we going to wait for the kids to grow up, or the current adults with guns to grow up?

I hate the fact that I see all of these mass shootings on TV & I feel numb “Oh, it will happen again next week” & unfortunately that’s what usually happens.  I think when anyone says “Ah, it’s a mental health problem.  Don’t blame the guns.”  WHY?   What if it involved a member of your family?  “My family is fine, we all have a gun for protection”.  Yeah, so far that’s working great for others, especially when a gun owner snaps & goes on a killing spree.

Maynard’s going to be very busy, singing for 3 bands.

You can’t really blame the singer for his voice sounding so much like Robert Plant.  The bassist & drummer aren’t at the Led Zeppelin plateau & the guitarist is guilty for the tone of his guitar & Zeppelin sound alike riffs.  I wouldn’t complain about a band having a similar sound as Led Zeppelin?

I’d rather see a human on stage showing their craft, but maybe that’s just me.  This stuff seems more like a gimmick to me.

I’m not sure how to feel about this?  “The Birds of Prey” album by “Live” was very questionable at best.  I guess we’ll see if there’s any gas in the tank?

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

I fell asleep to “Nothing But Thieves” the album “Broken Machine”

Finished off Friday by playing 3 games of cribbage with my cousin & her new boyfriend.  Good times!  Kim’s not a cribbage fan, so I finally used the cribbage board I got for Christmas!

Saturday was a busy day!  A guy I haven’t seen since I graduated high school in 1998 came over to visit.  We were on the high school baseball team, sang in the choir & the chamber choir that went to Newfoundland in the summer of ’97.  Nice to catch up.  He’s still into baseball.  So now I’ve got 3 other people to watch baseball with 3 X Chris + Trevor, I know more & more Chris’ as I get older.

He left around or just before 4 pm.  Hannah, Jolene & Corey showed up very shortly after.  The girls went to see “Peter Rabbit”.

Corey brought all of the ingredients for the most unhealthy meal we created in 2002, he made supper, brought beer, & washed dishes.  Then we had 2 medium pizzas to bake, poutine chicken wings, 2 or 3 beer each, & some chips.  Sat on the couch & waited for my dad to pick us up to see “Big Wreck” at Casino Regina for a 20th anniversary show of their first album.  It was fantastic.  There was even an announcement to turn off your cell phone or any other recording device before the opening act hit the stage.  The only negative to the show was that they ended with a “Thornley” song.

Sunday was spent mostly on the couch watching “FRIENDS” on Netflix.  Today is the get ready for the week day.  Kim is doing laundry & hard boiling eggs.  I make a pitcher of blended vegetables & baking fish.

 

Big Wreck concert review.

I was not legal drinking age when their 1st album came out in 1998.  I saw them in a bar in 1999 at the age of 19 (legal drinking age in Saskatchewan).  They blew me away & I haven’t missed a show of theirs in Regina since.  Without over exaggerating I’ve likely seen them 12-15 times including the recent 3 times I’ve seen them.  From ’99 to 2002 they’d come through Regina 2-4 times a year before they broke up.  Then the lead singer started a band called “Thornley” that released 2 albums the 2nd was released when I was in the hospital.  Corey bought the CD for me while I was in the hospital.  Big Wreck returned with a new album touring through Regina on May 6th, 2012 (my sister-in-law’s birthday) we saw them at The Pump.

Last night we saw (Corey, dad, & I) the 20th anniversary show of their debut album that had 3 or 4 singles all over the radio & 3 videos on Much Music.  I reverted to a 19 year old again, but I knew all of the words this time & quietly sang along.  These 4 songs were/are their popular songs here anyways…

That’s 1 of 4 big concerts for me this year another 20th anniversary show coming up & another one I went to in 2016.  20th anniversary shows make me feel old until I’m their then I revert to 19 or 20 years old again during the show.

 

So, I could purchase one decent album by Ed Sheeran, or I could buy 1 song from 10 artists I don’t listen too?  I buy albums only!

MONDAY IS FAMILY DAY IN SASKATCHEWAN.  WEEKEND UPDATE WILL BE ON MONDAY NOT SUNDAY

Every day I wake up & for a very brief moment I think to myself “Crap, this is my fault”.  NOBODY blames me for this, it’s all in my head.  I get over that by the time I transfer to my wheelchair & carry on with my day.

1000 pushups, 700 leg lifts, 500 crunches, 250 tricep pushups, 270 squats, & 200 back flexes.  For exercising I drink TONS of water.  My bottle holds 700 ml.  I have at least 3 a day or sometimes 5, 0-3 cups of black coffee, & my vegetable juice/smoothie in the morning.

 

I fell asleep to “Michael Jackson” a “Greatest Hits” album, followed by “Into Eternity” the album “The Scattering of Ashes”

I exercised to “Paramore” all 5 albums on shuffle.

Yes I’m still having the same issue with my iTunes.  I haven’t been able to reach the guy working on my case.  If I’m desperate another person at the call center is willing to help me or I know of a different software to use.

Usually a turkey wrap or a piece of fish for lunch.  An apple or honey dew melon chunks for a snack & something relatively healthy for supper.  Very little alcohol on weekends, 4 drinks in total or less, some weekends no alcohol.

Even at Rider football games I don’t drink alcohol, $9 for a can of generic beer???  Are they crazy????  I could get a pack of 15 cans for $18?  NO!

 

 

TV shows are making a comeback.  “Will & Grace”, “Rosanne”, on Netflix “Friends”, “Full House”, older “The X-files”, “Fuller House” new “The X-files” on cable.  “Jurassic Park” has comeback as “Jurassic World”, “Ghostbusters” had a reboot, I hear “Murphy Brown” is coming back, there’s probably something I’m missing?

So are writers out of ideas or was the public pushing for all of these reboots?

‘90s bands live on or have gotten back together as well to tour or record as well.  “The Tea Party”, “Our Lady Peace”, “Soundgarden” until the early passing of Chris Cornell, “Big Wreck” have released 3 albums & an EP since their return in 2012 after 10 or 11 years, “The Watchmen” are touring a bit, “I Mother Earth” is touring, “Smashing Pumpkins” aren’t done, “Guns n’ Roses” reunited, “Garth Brooks” is back I hear, etc.  No I’m not going to post a link for each band.  Just 3 or 4.

 

These restore my faith in humanity!!!!!

 

New “Royal Blood” video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Does this mean “Muse” is releasing an album?

I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “The Sin & the Sentence” followed by “I Mother Earth” the album “Dig”

I exercised to “Big Wreck” the album “In Loving Memory of…….”

During breakfast I was listening to “Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds” the album “Who Built the Moon?”

 

I said previously “Hope for the best, prepare for the worst”.  That’s not right!  You can’t live your life in fear with an underground bunker full of water jugs, nonperishables, & a generator just in case?

Once you’re in a situation, then you should “Hope for the best & prepare for the worst”.  I didn’t prepare to have cancer?  Does anybody prepare for that?  I hope not.

It happened, I slept for a year while Kim got stuff lined up for us.  Even one of my doctors called her “The best wife he’d ever seen”.  So remember that Kim is the real hero in this story.  She has laid everything out for me to exercise & get better.  That doctor said that most spouses leave.  I’d likely be dead without her.  I couldn’t even reach the button to call a nurse for help, Kim had to do a PILE of stuff for me.  I was so shaky that she had to feed me.  My parents fed me to begin with in the hospital, since I couldn’t reach my mouth!

I was on an intervenes of TPN, don’t know what that stands for but I think it was a mixture of water & some type of liquid nourishment.  I was never hungry & a very few times I wanted some milk when I learned how to use a straw.  Kim learned how to do it so we could spend some time at the lake during my time at the WRC.

Brewster had some dental work yesterday.  A cleaning & 12 of 42 teeth pulled.  Wasn’t anywhere near as much as I thought it would cost or what they estimated.  He was still a bit numb & high I think.  He did have some wet dog food though!  He has stitches in his mouth that will dissolve.  I missed him a lot Tuesday!  He went in at 7:00 am & Kim picked him up on her way home from work around 4:45 pm or so.

 

Yes, “Lamb of God” is one of my favourite bands, not just metal bands but one of my favourite bands overall.

Thank you “Winter Olympics” I like you but now nothing else is on TV.  Even the sports talk show I watch had the host complaining about the same hockey game on 8 channels, Canada wasn’t even playing & he works for Roger’s communications!  I can’t even watch “The Ellen Degeneres Show” until Kim gets home!

Just a chat here for a change.  The music industry will continue to change.  The only platform that has survived is vinyl!  Reel to reel, 4 tracks, 8 tracks, cassettes, & CDs have all come & gone.  Who knows if the digital music era will be around in 20 years?  Apple stock is constantly going down, it has been for a while.  Microsoft launched a “media store” late last year, but just like iTunes when it started they don’t have much at the moment.  Other than that I haven’t looked into it much.  I’d purchase CDs if I had the physical space for them.  I wasn’t around for eight tracks, but I’ve seen my fair share of platforms come & go.

I got my parents car in 1996 after getting my license, it had a cassette deck.  I was buying CDs & converting them to cassette on my boom box.  Then I got a CD adapter for in the car.  New vehicles now have USB outlets for an iPod or they use blue tooth from your iPhone or new iPod.  You can debate which platform will survive or not but no one really knows?  Until some whiz kid pops up with the next platform for listening to music.

Maybe one day I’ll pack up my CDs, put them in our storage unit & buy newer CDs?

Whatever works for you at the moment is fine.  No need to worry about what might happen in the future.

 

“It’s beginning to look a lot like baseball”!!!!!!!!!!

Pitchers & Catchers report to spring training today.  How will the Blue Jays do?  I have no clue?  That’s way too many “ifs” at this point.

http://www.sportsnet.ca/baseball/mlb/blue-jays-face-major-questions-ahead-spring-training-2018/

Baseball umpires seem to get worse with every passing year.  Bad trend.

If you get suspended for something ridiculous, scream all you want or until you can’t afford the fine.  Who do the umpires report to?  The commissioner I assume?  Who does NOTHING about this!

I will be firmly planted on the couch to watch the Blue Jays’ first spring training game on Friday, February 23rd. After my exercise, breakfast, a shower, & make myself pretty.  Thar last part takes me A LONG time.

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

I fell asleep to “Metallica” the album “Hardwired…..to Self-Destruct”

I think I’m turning into a casual Metallica fan?  What’s happening to me, this is REALLY weird?  Almost like a second puberty?

 

No, I don’t spend bundles of money on iTunes in the blink of an eye.  I know who/what I’ll purchase on iTunes now.  Although I still don’t own much for classical music other than “Carmina Burana”.  You’ve heard one movement of it, some of you wouldn’t know it though.  Think of it in a trailer for a HUGE action movie in the past…..

 

Quiet weekend here as usual.  Friday was very tame.  Cleaned off the DVR, still had some of this week’s “Ellen’s Game of Games” left to watch.  They used Ellen’s face to censor a butt crack?  That was funny & odd at the same time.

Sleep over with our 4 year old “niece” Saturday night.  Pink slime, colouring, & supper.  Noodles, cheese sauce, steamed cauliflower, & chicken nuggets!  Mmmmm!  Kim made supper, I handled the dishes (TONS of dishes).  I think we should have Hannah here more often if that’s what Kim will make for supper!  As usual I got the couch while Kim & Hannah got the bed.  Of course I took my iPod to the couch!

I stayed up for a bit after they went to bed.  I watched a documentary on Netflix called “The Boy Who Tried to Kill Donald Trump”.  He’s teenager with Asperger’s from England.  He ran away from his parents on a trip to the USA, tried to buy a gun, was denied obviously for his age & he‘s an illegal immigrant.  He went to a Trump rally during the campaign.  Tried to steal a police officer’s gun & was immediately tackled by police.  I think he’s been released from prison after 4 months for good behavior.  He attempted suicide before at home & was on suicide watch in prison.

I don’t like Trump either, but nobody should be killed.  I like Wanda Sykes take on Trump.  Skip to 3 minutes to see her idea for the White House.

This morning was pancakes with sprinkles in them, topped with whip cream & assorted berries.  Mmmmm!

 

 

All of those movies I talked about on Wednesday are the big blockbuster movies.  When it’s a HUGE movie like those are, I wait at least a week to see them.  Sorry no new albums to review.  I might do some of my “classic” albums next week?

I’ll admit that I’m looking forward to seeing Kelly Clarkson on “The Voice”!  She’s funny & has a VERY good voice.  I typically don’t like these “talent contest” shows & I try to avoid most of them.  I listened to the recent release from Demi Lovato.  She also has a great voice, but the song writing wasn’t quite there.  For me it’s now “Pink”, “Kelly Clarkson”, “Metal”, & “Rock”, with some acoustic stuff in the mix.

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

Did they really just compare “The Beatles” to “The Offspring?”  & “The Clash” to “One Direction?”

 

I knew about 2/3 of these!

Let’s add this to the list.

 

I’ve seen Ozzy, time to retire, he deserves it!

I fell asleep to “Queens of the Stone Age” their 2002 release “Songs for the Deaf” followed by “Trivium” the album “The Sin & the Sentence”

I exercised to “Bush” the album “Sixteen Stone” way back when they had to call themselves “Bush X” in Canada.  There was a Canadian called Bush, never heard them, my CD says “Bush X” released in 1994

500 crunches, 590 leg lifts, 700 pushups, 245 tricep pushups, 200 back flexes, & 240 squats.  That’s my week of exercising.

I figured out today how to do my exercises & not be completely exhausted after.  50 squats, 50 tricep pushups, 40 back flexes, 100 pushups, 100 crunches, 50 more pushups, & 130 leg lifts.

Thursday I was lacking energy & knew I wouldn’t make my totals after doing my squats.  I did everything just dialed the numbers back a bit.

In reference to Brewster’s teeth, he’ll be fine & it won’t cost nearly as much as I had anticipated.  That’s our kid, our little boy.  Might not make sense to some of you but you’d do the same for your human child I assume.  If there is something Kim or Brewster needs, consider it done, especially after what they’ve done for me!  When Kim looked at his teeth, I didn’t think twice “How soon can it happen?” Was the first thing I said & “What’s it going to cost?”

All of this exercising is almost too much for me.  I’m not stopping though.  The sets/numbers have gone up, which has made it more difficult.  I can do all of them, by the end I’m tired & seriously out of breath.  I roll over on my side or have some water as I try to catch my breath for a few minutes.  After that I roll up my exercise mat & carry on with whatever I can do around the house.  My exercise time is a minimum of 2 hours.  In the evenings, 3 days a week, I do some cardio.  Walking with my walker or riding a recumbent exercise bike.

The cardio I’ll tally it up at the end of the year or possibly in June & then the end of the year.

 

This looks like the year for Marvel to rake in a few billion dollars!

When you see me mention Deadpool, just always assume there will be language involved.

Deadpool 2 is locked & loaded for release on May 18th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

Black Panther is set for release on February 16th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Avengers: Infinity War also hits theaters this summer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Venom hits theaters in October.

Ant man & The Wasp will be in theaters in July

 

Aquaman comes to theaters December 21st!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Han Solo comes to theaters this summer.

 

Other than “Aquaman” & “Han Solo” looks like Marvel wants to get crazy rich this year.  I still have yet to see “Thor Ragnarok” & “The Justice League”.  Looks like I’ll be busy this year, baseball starting shortly, the CFL, these movies, working out, & some TV thrown into the mix.

Paramore, Nothing but Thieves, Fall Out Boy, Pink, & Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds all seem to be getting a LOT of air time from me.

 

I’m sorry, I can’t stop laughing at this.

I fell asleep to “Megadeth” the album “Dystopia”, “Megadeth” the album “Peace Sells….but Who’s Buying?” & finally “Pearl Jam” the album “Yield”

I exercised to “Pink” the album “Beautiful Trauma”

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

After 2 days of being struck with a head cold & a weekend, my exercises were very difficult on Monday.  Tuesday evening we look at Brewster’s teeth, the little furry guy needs a cleaning & perhaps a few teeth removed, we’ll find out the price tonight!  The Finger Eleven & I Mother Earth concert looks as though it’s very unattainable now.  It may cost less than Brewster’s teeth, as Kim pointed out. It’s one of the 2 cheaper concerts of the 4.  Brewster & Kim are priority number 1 in this house!  I didn’t sleep well last night, I was stressing pretty hard, more worried about Brewster than anything.

I tried to watch the Super Bowl, sounded like an entertaining game.  4 hours of football is just too much for me.  I recorded it to see/hear Pink do the national anthem & Justin Timberlake at half time.  Even if the Canadian Football League goes into over time I get antsy.

Look this up on your channel guide, CFL scheduled for 3 hours, Major League Baseball scheduled for 3 hours, NFL scheduled for 4 hours!  Curling, golf, hockey, basketball, NASCAR, Indy car, etc.  I don’t watch those sports.  I watch the Toronto Blue Jays & the Canadian Football League.  I can’t watch 4 hours of football, however a 6 hour baseball game I can manage that no problem.

I know it’s odd, so here’s why.  With every single batter, each fielder has to think ahead as to what or where they are going to be with each pitch.  It’s a reaction sport.  Is the batter going to bunt, hit for contact, swing for the fence, how many outs are there, what base(s) have runners, where do I need to be if it’s hit towards these areas, etc.

I don’t know much about other sports, since I didn’t play them but I think along with the players when I watch baseball.  That may be a good reason as to why so many people get so bored?  I understand where they’re coming from.

The actual game I recorded to watch the musical performances.  I was also recording the movie “Lucy”.  It was on TV.  After being told it was terrible by friends of mine, I figured, “It’s free & there’s really nothing else on but the Super Bowl”.  I didn’t love the movie, & I didn’t hate the movie.  I thought it was OK.  I don’t need to watch it again.  Decent movie to rent though.  Another science fiction movie, leave logic at the door!

 

 

Thanks www.loudwire.com , but I’ll be the judge for ranking 1 of my 2 favourite bands catalogue!
