I fell asleep to “Ed Sheeran” the new album “Divide”, then “Pentatonix” their 4th EP of covers, & finally “Coheed & Cambria” the album “The Colour Before The Sun”

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

Just a lot of stretching this week to mostly “The Watchmen” the new album “Live & In Stereo”

 

We’re broke.  No other way to put it.  Maybe it’s because of tax season, but we have less cash flow than most average couples when it’s not tax season.  We spend the same amount of money a month as most people our age spend in a week.  Kim has a good job, & she enjoys it.  The last time we went out for supper was probably my birthday in January?  We can’t afford to travel anywhere.  I end up blaming myself, knowing I couldn’t have predicted this situation.  All of that being said, I do blame myself somewhat.  After all, I’m the one who had cancer & put us in this spot.  I’m NOT asking for a hand out, I’m just telling you how it is.  So many people have helped us out financially along the way, especially when I was in the hospital.  Thank you!

I always worry about our finances, since I’m terrible with money & I never see what we have in the bank.  I guess paycheck to paycheck is how we’re living now.  I always ask Kim if we can afford whatever I’m looking at purchasing.  My weakness is music from iTunes.  No matter how much it is, I ask Kim if it’s OK.  Kim gave me an allowance.  More than likely a good idea.  I’ve really slowed down on buying music anyways.  I know which artists I want to hear more of, & it’s not every band I’ve heard of!  I only had 2 years of mortgage insurance, but neither of us was working for almost 5 years.

I guess Kim & I suffer from the cancer side effect originally from Hawaii called “Lackamoola” as my brother found a birthday card for me years ago.

This is a one income no kids (oinks) household.  If there’s a child in this house, the battle is between Brewster & I.  I like stuff & he needs to be with someone 24 hours a day.  He has terrible anxiety.  If he sees me putting on my shoes, he starts to freak out.

 

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.

After the game on Tuesday, April 11, 2017, the Toronto Blue Jays have played 7 games & only have 1 win to show for their efforts.  They are currently 1W-6L.  Last April they finished the month at 11W-14L.  I hear all of these broadcasters saying “Aw, it’s only April” & they want to see meaningful baseball in September.  Well these games are just as important if you want to see meaningful baseball in September.  What were Blue Jay fans doing during the last regular season game last year?  Praying to make it into the playoffs!  If you turn their wins & loses around for April of last year to 14W-11L, I wouldn’t have been biting my nails during the final game last year.  Right now 11W-14L looks like an impossible achievement.  Mostly the same players picking up right where they left off last year………………….sad.  The only real upside is at first base.  The guy couldn’t hit water if he fell out of a boat the last 2 years.  So far this year, he’s one of the best hitters they have.  He’s not a home run hitter, but he does hit very well as a contact hitter.  Only 155 games left in the regular season!

 

YAY!  Royal Blood release confirmed “How did we get so dark?” release date June, 16th!  No preorder or anything like that………………yet!  I think I just saw on their Facebook page that there will be a song available on Thursday, April 13th at 7:00 pm EST!  They’re not a metal band if you’ve never heard of them.  A drummer & bass player/singer, a hard rock band.  Dave Grohl called them to see if they’d open for Foo Fighters on the tour for “Sonic Highways” during 2015.

Well that was a bust!  The sedative did nothing for me at my MRI appointment. I think it was a placebo?  Either way I didn’t really need it.  This MRI machine was much bigger than the one at the hospital, & they were looking at my lower back, not my brain & entire spine.  We saw the MRI, I have a bulging disc, and I’ve had it since high school.  I’m guessing I have some options.  A) More physiotherapy B) More messages & chiropractor visits C) Surgery

Kim just assumes it will be surgery & then got really worried about me aka she started crying.  I held her & told her not to worry about me, I don’t like seeing her so worried, and we don’t even know what the doctors will say.  The only thing we’re pretty sure about is no cortisone shot.  They can do more damage to the bone structure than good.  Kim, don’t worry whatever the doctors decide, we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.

That was our Friday night!  No more wild parties here, we’s old!

Saturday was very lazy.  We did nothing, didn’t even breakup with Janis!  We watched the Blue Jays lose……..again.  We also rented “Christmas Office Party” hilarious R rated comedy!

 

Today, I’ll be watching the Toronto Blue Jays hopefully win their 2nd game so their record looks a bit better instead of the current 1W-4L.  We can all just pretend there is no problem in LF & 1B, we’ll pretend they’ll make it to the playoffs in Sept-Oct??????

Well, my Friday evening of BBB turned into a BBM instead.  Instead of Beer, Blizzard, & Baseball, it ended up being Beer, Blizzard & Movie.  Got a Growler from Rebellion of oatmeal stout & the blizzard of the month from DQ.  Sportsnet only played the pregame, the game itself was only available on SNE, SNOntario, & SNPacific.  The 3 Sportsnet channels we don’t get on our cable package.  Ah, well these games don’t count, nothing counts until they play in Baltimore on Monday.  Last preseason game was Saturday in Montreal.  Blue Jays vs. The Pittsburg Pirates.  I’m anxious for Monday!

Once I gave up looking for the game on Friday, we rented “Patriot’s Day” on iTunes.  The movie about the bombings at the Boston Marathon.  Excellent movie I thought!

See what Pentatonix are releasing on Friday, April 7th!  A 7 song EP of cover songs!!

Saturday I watched the baseball game.  I shut it off in the 9th inning, we had to leave to be at Corey & Jolene’s place.  The Jays were winning 6-4 with 1 out left for Pittsburg.  We got to Corey & Jolene’s place & the girls went shopping with Hannah.  We worked through 2 songs multiple times.  Corey’s giving vocals a shot & my rhythm is not quite there.  Here’s what we worked on….

 

The girls came back just before supper time & Hannah decided it was “Uncle” Chris’ birthday, I guess the one in January didn’t count.  So because of my birthday we all had to have our finger nails painted!  My right hand is the Oh so fashionable Saskatchewan Roughrider green & my left hand has alternating pink & purple………………..HAWT!  We had a delicious supper followed by some Easter chocolate for dessert.  We watched some “My Little Pony”, Hannah had a bath & then we left as she was going to bed.  Good times!  Nice to see friends & get out of the house as well as playing bass/guitar with Corey!  I haven’t touched my guitar until last weekend, since 2015?

 

Who needs more generic Molson beer?

It’s now Sunday morning, eggs & sausage are being made.  I just came in here to see who the final cut was for the Blue Jays was.  For me, they made the right choice, OF Melvin Upton Jr. is gone.  They got him last year & he’s nowhere near the same as he was before he joined the Jays.  I’m sure we’ll see 2 early 20 year olds come up from the minor leagues later on this season.  I’m guessing one of them will be the everyday 1B next season.

 

This Sammy Hagar replacing Maynard James Keenan in Tool I really hope is a bad April fools joke.

I fell asleep to “Pearl Jam” the album “Ten”, followed by their album “Vitalogy” work up to pee & fell asleep to their album “VS”

I exercised to “Dire Straits” their “Sultans of Swing” greatest hits album.

Weekly exercise total; 1300 crunches, 150 pushups, & 40 back flexes

So in addition to my exercise, I’m now playing “bass” with Corey, his idea to help me out.  We’re choosing easier songs until my left hand is up to speed.  I get very frustrated trying to play guitar.  Before when I learned, I picked it up learned the notes and basic chords & I was good enough to sing & play in front of an audience.  I never really practiced it.  This week I’ve spent at least half an hour to 1 hour practicing.  It’s a love/hate thing for.  I like doing it, but I hate having to practice something I used to do for fun.  My brain knows what to do, my left hand doesn’t seem to care though.

I’m not playing an actual bass, I’m playing the bass line to the song until my fingers get stronger for actual bass strings.  That’s how I taught myself to play real guitar.  I learned bass lines on acoustic guitar to teach Rob how to play actual bass in University.

After posting on Wednesday, I grabbed my guitar again.  Managed to finally “train” my fingers into playing power chords & a few actual chords.  The change of fingering the chords is slow, but I’m sure it will come eventually.

I was getting a bit down but with Corey’s brilliant idea, me being able to do some of my exercises, & baseball starting soon, I’m in a much better mood.  Great call by Corey noticing I was a little stuck.

We’re learning one song at a time.  Corey & I are Foo Fighters fans.  I figured since we both know the song “Learn to Fly” & it’s pretty easy we’ll start there.  I don’t think Corey has ever sang but he said he’s willing to try.  He asked me, a long time ago if I could teach him.  I don’t know what I’d say other than repetition.  I was terrible when I started, but the more I did it, the better I got at it.  I’m pretty sure being in choir in high school helped.

 

This director is more known for action movies such as “Paycheck”, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”, “Transformers”, etc.  I’m slightly skeptical about him directing a movie about El Chapo

http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/news/michael-bay-in-talks-to-direct-hunting-el-chapo-movie-w474033

 

I was listening to a sports talk show Thursday night.  I’m glad I’m not the only one that thinks the Blue Jays are set up for disaster in LF & 1B.  If this is what they’re sticking with everything else needs to be perfect!

Don’t feel as though you have to open every link.  In fact, I’m going to change this up a bit.  A buddy of mine woke me up.  I was getting stuck in a rut somewhat.  Too many links on here first of all & extremely consistent with me posting stuff 6 days/week.  After this post I’ll cut it down.  The 2 of us are going to cook something up come April, to help me work on some stuff I need to do.  I’ll still be around for questions & critiques.  I’ll do a blog on Wednesday, Friday, & Sunday.  Without more than 4 www.youtube.com  links, which are always optional.  I’ll catch you on Wednesday after this blog post.

Thursday I spent the day at my parents’ place.  It was my only brother’s, only sibling’s, 30th birthday.  Birthday supper with the family BBQd burgers, Caesar salad, & Grandma’s chocolate cake!  I feel older now.  My younger brother is 30 now!

It’s 9:20 am on Friday.  I’ve exercised, showered, had breakfast, & done my dishwasher duty.  All I have left is to make a pitcher of juice for my breakfast since I finished it this morning, then baseball to be watched at 11:00 am.

As I was getting ready to go to my parents’ Thursday, I found peanut M & Ms, “my weakness is their sweetness” I resisted though, I had 7.  Kim went to all of the trouble of hiding them in an empty yogurt container but left the container in the middle of the island.  Had it been in the pantry, I never would have seen them!  However she did get me some Ben & Jerry’s Half Baked.  “Hello couch & Blue Jays, meet Ben & Jerry, they’ll be joining us today!”

Blue Jays won in a game that means nothing.  Jose Bautista & Troy Tulowitzki looked ready to start the regular season.  So did injury recovering Josh Donaldson & Devon Travis.  Regular season begins Monday, April 3rd.  I don’t like their “solutions” for LF & 1B, but I’m nothing more than a fan, & it’ll change if the head honchos can figure out a solution.

Found out Friday that the Jays play Saturday & Sunday as well.  I have very little ice cream left I guess water, black coffee, rice thins, & hummus will have to do?

Music played while I was doing stuff around the house or that I fell asleep to.

I played at 3 actual wedding ceremonies for friends.  The weddings were the places I got extremely nervous for.  1 shot at this & it had better be perfect.  I don’t want to be the big OOPS at the wedding.  I would always put pressure on myself to have a good show when I or the entire band hit the stage.  I always preferred having all of us on stage (safety in numbers).  Our first band in University had a rule if one of us isn’t bleeding after 35-42 songs, which was everything we knew) the show wasn’t good enough.  We played each show like we were “Nirvana” light.  We didn’t harm our instruments, our bodies were a different story though.  I remember Rydell, our guitarist, head banging so hard he fell down, but he soldiered on & never stopped playing the song, even on the ground!  Too funny!

 

Songs I’d play for fun on my own, or covered with a band.

Do we really need labels & barriers to define everyone?  International women’s day, #LGBT, religious holidays, etc.  Not everyone celebrates everything about themselves?  If you want to celebrate something without harming anyone, go right ahead.  You would hope by 2017 we’d have that figured out by now, but NOPE! I know that’s not how everyone sees it, I don’t.  It’s all good with me, I’m sure someone will take it the wrong way & start a war because everybody is trying to fit into everyone else’ perfect little box.  Guess what?  The world is much larger than that little box.  I’m Christian, some of my friends aren’t, and that’s fine by me.  I’m not gay, I know some who are, no big deal.  You’re NOT supposed to be like the next person.  Ricky Gervais puts the entire religious deal perfectly.

I just worry that all of these labels will make people live targets for being a civilian?  There is a BIG difference between Religious & Extremist.  You don’t need to fear a religion or a religious individual or anyone for that matter unless they’re holding a weapon.  Talk to them, you might be surprised?

I understand an individual’s desire to fit in with a crowd.  I just worry that the crowd will be more susceptible to other groups’ hatred.

 

Sorry baseball stuff I’d like to address, to get it off my chest.  This winter the President and the General Manager, both 1 year into their Blue Jay career, had 2 things they wanted/needed to do.  They wanted players that were younger & more left handed hitters.  They got one guy who I hope never touches a defensive glove, but he’s a switch hitter, he literally hits from both sides of the plate!  Great we’ll keep him!  Now with spring training about ½ way through more players are finding out their role for the year.  Guess what?  They have 2 younger & left handed players they had go through their minor league system!  21 year old first baseman Rowdy Tellez & 20 something year old outfielder Dalton Pompey.  Right there you’ve got your fielding & hitting problems solved Pompey can play LF while hitting leadoff & Tellez can play 1B & hit as an RBI guy.  As for the 2 current Jays go at those positions, Smoak & Upton, package them together for another decent utility player!

Sorry baseball stuff I’d like to address, to get it off my chest.  This winter the President and the General Manager, both 1 year into their Blue Jay career, had 2 things they wanted/needed to do.  They wanted players that were younger & more left handed hitters.  They got one guy who I hope never touches a defensive glove, but he’s a switch hitter, he literally hits from both sides of the plate!  Great we’ll keep him!  Now with spring training about ½ way through more players are finding out their role for the year.  Guess what?  They have 2 younger & left handed players they had go through their minor league system!  21 year old first baseman Rowdy Tellez & 20 something year old outfielder Dalton Pompey.  Right there you’ve got your fielding & hitting problems solved Pompey can play LF while hitting leadoff & Tellez can play 1B & hit as an RBI guy.  As for the 2 current Jays go at those positions, Smoak & Upton, package them together for another decent utility player!

20 years?!  Let it go instead of digging up the past.  Solving the case won’t bring him back to his friends & family.  Unless they need a type of closure let him RIP

 

Best Thrash metal albums of the 21st Century so far.  I don’t use subgenres when discussing music.  A lot of it doesn’t help me with anything?
