I fell asleep to “I Mother Earth” the album “The Quicksilver Meat Dream”

Wear a shirt, listen to the band!

I exercised to “Finger Eleven” the album “Tip”

 

I watched “This is Life” on CNN with Lisa Ling last Sunday.  It was about people becoming addicted to technology.  They even mentioned that kids are committing suicide or throwing tantrums when their phone, tablet, computer, etc. is taken away, kids who have graduated high school or have dropped out of school.  I guess there is a rehab place for it in Silicon Valley.  One guy who was suicidal, because he played games on his cell phone so much he wouldn’t sleep, he just kept playing the game, he stopped speaking to other people completely.  He spoke to the group, including his sister & parents about just getting a flip phone.

What am I trying to explain here is that the Facebook message, email, tweet, etc. will be there, even if you don’t reply instantly.  Nobody talks to anyone any more.  I’ll text you, email you, Facebook you, etc. that’s all I hear.  You can call me, Facebook me, or email me to get together later on.  Then we can talk face to face.

I’m not perfect by any stretch of the imagination.  I refuse to get a smart phone.  I don’t want to hear an alert from my phone all of the time.  My wife has a cell phone & it drives me nuts when she sets it on the couch & I feel it vibrate or hear it make a sound.  If I really need a phone, I’ll get a flip phone & people can call me.

Companies like google, yahoo, email sites, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. are trying to push out as much crap as possible to keep you engaged with your phone as long as possible so they can make more money.

You know what’s coming next?  Robots, that are stronger than us.  Jim Jefferies even had a segment about them.  They’re real, & I want no part of it!

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

Kids on average get a cell phone between the ages of 6-13.  Why do kids need/want a cell phone at that age?  I’m 38 with nothing more than a desktop computer aka I don’t freak out without a cell phone in my pocket.  It is so nice to not worry about that.  What is on my computer desk?  Pens & paper, to write down new phone numbers & new passwords.

https://www.cnn.com/2017/12/11/health/cell-phones-for-kids-parenting-without-borders-explainer-intl/index.html

Kids are said to be more depressed these days because of less human interaction & they’re not the C.E.O. a successful business after being there for 8 months.  Chill out, the Earth doesn’t orbit around anyone, just the sun.

I do the same with this blog & assume everyone knows how I’m doing?  Well not everyone is reading this.  If they’re in a different province or country, I’ll email them or Facebook them, however they prefer to be reached.  I don’t send enough messages as I should though.

 

This is one of the reasons Dave Grohl is so cool!

 

Are Pentatonix going to release a Christmas album every year?  They’re on pace for it.

 

This is why I’m against streaming music & digital downloads.  Apple needs to get rid of their streaming music site, let the artists set the price between $9.99 to 14.99 per download.  The option?  Streaming sites need to pay the artist more!  I’ve got 600 CDs behind me in boxes.  The average cost of a CD was around $20- $25.  Artists could put the price at $18.99 & it would still be cheap for people like me.  I’m not an Avenged Sevenfold fan but this was the article that I saw.  99.9% of their income comes from touring.  I haven’t seen every band I like live, so they’re missing out on money from me in a way, I guess?

http://loudwire.com/avenged-sevenfold-synyster-gates-touring-99-9-percent-bands-income/

Would you want to spend $1000s of dollars on recording the music, paying a producer, a sound engineer, etc.?  Only to give it away on a fraction of a penny?  I’d make music for myself & tour every 5 years while working at another job 5 days a week.

 

Why would ‘System of a Down’ even consider getting a therapist like ‘Metallica’?  Remember after ‘Metallica’ got a therapist they gave us the album ‘St. Anger’.  An album that sounds terrible with 0 solos.  The solo thing I can get past, the production & song writing on that album leaves a LOT to be desired.

 

I wonder who put gasoline on the fire of the lies, deception, & hatred?

 

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN

I only own the album “Born in the USA”.  This is an album I heard as a kid, my dad was really into it.  He has the regular vinyl edition & bought a special edition that’s still sealed in the purchased packaging.  I bought this album on iTunes & added a few extra songs from his greatest hits album.

I saw this video ^^ while I was watching “FRIENDS” as a teenager & asked “Is that Monica from friends?”  Reply from my parents “Yes, it is” I was surprised.

These are all on the album.  The following is one of the songs I added.

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

Went to the cabin this weekend since my parents will begin closing it for the winter (it’s not winterized).  My parents, my brother & Rachel, myself & Kim were all out there.  Mitch & Rachel came out Saturday morning.

We watched an older football movie Friday, it was a cold weekend with some rain & sleet there.

Saturday the 6 of us were just hanging out.  Watched the Saskatchewan Roughrider game in the afternoon while beginning the pickling of our livers.  Had supper, played cards.  Stopped our card game to visit with my cousin & her parents, who have a cabin out there as well.

I tried some sipping Bourbon.  As with anything but red wine, I liked the bourbon, quite tasty.  Mitch & Rachel found some ‘Pumpkin Spiced Baileys’ quite tasty!

Good weekend & a lot of fun!  Nice break from being here staring at the same 4 walls!

 

WOW, that’s blind loyalty!!!!!!!

I could care less if you’re a Republican or a Democrat, in this situation all I need to know is are you a decent person?  I’m in Canada & I could care less about Canadian politics.  Russia got to vote in the American election yet the USAs neighbor to the north didn’t, how is that OK?

 

Is this something an organization would say if they were selling tickets to scalpers?

BEN HARPER

I don’t have a clue about this man.  I do have 8 of his albums though.  He’s always playing either as a solo artist or Ben Harper & _____________ The Innocent Criminals, The Blind Boys of Alabama, The Relentless 7, or just as a solo artist.  He sings while playing slide guitar (mostly) in a chair with the guitar on his lap.  I really like the Gospel album he made with “The Blind Boys of Alabama”!  As usual I’ll dive right into the music….

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

Music throughout the weekend. “Alice in Chains”, “The Pretty Reckless”, “Halestorm”, & “Dead Sara”

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

 

I got a new water bottle a few weeks ago that hold 1 liter of water.  I have dry mouth.  If I don’t have something to drink or sugarless gum to chew on.  I drink a minimum of 3 liters of water a day if not 6 liters a day.  If I’m going somewhere that evening, I keep it at 3 liters.  Most days it’s 4 or 5 liters then I’ll go to the washroom once or twice in the middle of the night.  I usually chew sugarless gum at the Saskatchewan Roughriders games!

We stayed in again Friday night.  Watched the Toronto Blue Jays lose……..again to the New York Yankees 11-0 or 12-0, I can’t remember?  Then we binge watched 3 episodes of “The Fosters” on Netflix.

Saturday we binge watched more of “The Fosters” during the day.  I went to a Saskatchewan Roughriders game vs. the visiting Ottawa Redblacks.

Dear Saskatchewan Roughriders,

The game clock started 56 minutes ago.  I’d like to see you demonstrate an offensive touchdown instead of relying on special teams & your field goal kicker?

Sincerely,

Me.

 

 

How disrespectful is that?????????????????????????????????????

 

Or you could just get a decent amplifier.  Guitar players are always searching for the perfect tone.  Guess what, it’s very hard to find, unless you’re lucky!  Find an amp that you’re 80% happy with.  Then there’s no need for any type of distortion pedal.  The guitar & amp are far more important than effect pedals, especially distortion & reverb pedals!

 

I have different bands, but that’s basically my shirt collection along with a few golf shirts & long sleeve shirts!

https://www.kerrang.com/features/the-13-best-heavy-metal-t-shirts-of-all-time-ranked/?utm_campaign=loudwire&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&influencer=true

 

Certainly not my list “Rush”, “Tool”, “Led Zeppelin” & “Lamb of God” so far down the list?  I’ve never seen “Rush” or “Led Zeppelin” live.  From the many acts, rock & metal acts, I have seen live.  “Tool” & “Queen” would be at the top of my list.  I did see “U2” in ’99 or 2000, they were AMAZING!  They couldn’t be on a metal & hard rock list though.

http://loudwire.com/top-hard-rock-metal-live-acts/

 

“Beck” preforms with “Gary Glitter” playing Garry Glitter’s 1979 hit “Cars”

 

Went to see “The Meg” with my brother.  Have you seen “Jaws” from the 1970s?  Either way, watch that for a shark movie.  Rachel wasn’t feeling great & stayed home.  Kim didn’t want to see the movie.  We went to my parents’ place for supper & met up with Kim there.

The Meg, we expected it to be a little loopy, my brother prefers “Deep Blue Sea” to “The Meg”.  I’ll leave it at that.  I did notice the odd nod to “Jaws” though.  Fun action movie though, not much more to it.

 

PENTATONIX

They have 9 albums out including the 3 Christmas albums.  They’re a 5 part vocal harmony group.  The majority of their stuff is all vocals with no instruments.  I think I’ve heard instruments in 2 or 3 songs, but it’s hard to tell.  They only have one full album of original material.  I’d like more of that but I can also see how that would be difficult in A Capella.  I don’t count the Christmas albums in any type of review but here’s a sampling of the other 6 albums….

 

2012    PTX. VOL.I EP

 

2014   PTX. VOL.II EP

 

2014   PTX. VOL.III EP

 

2015   PENTATONIX

WEEKLY EXERCISE TOTAL/IN FLAMES

The www.youtube.com links are there for a point of reference if you don’t know what I’m talking about.

No such thing as a stupid question!  Ask me & I’ll try to break it down for you!

Facebook subscription https://www.facebook.com/A-Million-Miles-Away-Blog-1597618270456002/

3 day weekly total; 200 pushups, 120 tricep pushups, 50 back flexes, 200 leg lifts, 100 crunches, 120 squats.

I fell asleep to “Alter Bridge” the new album “Live at the Royal Albert Hall featuring the Parallax Orchestra”.  Yes, I got it last night.

I exercised to “The Beaches” the album “Late Show”

 

I really could have used a break this week.  My body is just tired, I hurt in places I didn’t even know I had?  Yes, I’m keeping it cool on the crunches until I hear about back surgery.  Once it’s done & I get the green light to exercise, I don’t think 500-1000 every other day is out of the question?  I’ll figure it out when the time comes.  I needed a break this week so I’ve been doing 2 of my 6 exercises each day.  Sitting around & doing nothing all day gets boring really fast?

We got my new/much lighter wheelchair (12 pounds instead of 40 pounds) on Tuesday, then went liquor shopping & grocery shopping.  New liquor store, we mostly went to check it out.  I bought one 40 oz. bottle of Sambuca.  I should be good in that department for a while, or a month of weekends I’ll forget for the rest of my life!  Hahahahahaha!

 

Trump is part of the problem.  These are more issues NOT helping today’s society!

 

I bought this album on iTunes.  2 songs I didn’t care for & deleted.  I don’t purchase singles much, I prefer to listen to an entire album.  Unlike a stereotypical millennial.

Marching band at USA college football game does a tribute to Queen!!!

 

Freddie Mercury of Queen was born on September 5th, 1946!

 

I also still can’t believe that people don’t want to own music???????????  Majority rules while iTunes users get the cold shoulder.  A $200-$400 vinyl player with a USB port it will be if that’s what happens!  Crushes the option to get an iPhone to stream music for me.  2 things I don’t want or need!  Where will the vinyl go?  I’ll figure it out if this happens.

I can’t figure out the cost difference for Apple between streaming music & purchased downloaded music.  This has been a relatively slow year for me purchasing music.  Streaming music for a monthly fee wouldn’t make any difference in my downloading habit, so why take that option away?  I know I’m not the only one that prefers the iTunes download store.  Apple wants to compete with Spotify for streaming subscribers.  Nothing like trying to be the same as somebody else!??!

 

‘Greta Van Fleet’ has their first full length album for preorder.  The 8 song album that was already out is actually 2 EPs put together & released as one.  This will be a brand new 10 song album, with the single “When the Curtain Falls” will be released in full October 19th.  Yeah, the 22 year olds that sound like ‘Led Zeppelin’.

 

New lyric video from “The Struts”

 

Correction “Nothing but Thieves” 4 song EP will be released on October 19th

 

IN FLAMES   (I wasn’t sure about covering metal groups, then I realized it’s MY blog about me)

Swedish melodic death metal.  People like to complain about this group & I’ll tell you why.  They have 13 full albums out, a 4 song EP, & are currently recording another album.  Don’t let the death metal bother you.  Their 2nd last & now their previous full length album has had many metal fans going “Ugh, this is SO not metal anymore!!!!”  Fair enough, move on then.  For me, that’s fine.  When did it become necessary to be boxed in with a certain style?  I like all of their albums & all for different reasons.

I’ve seen them live twice.  First time was in Saskatoon in 2006.  They were part of a touring metal festival.  James & I had never even heard of them, but they were really good live!  They stole the show, we were there to see Trivium from Florida, who had technical issues that day/evening.

I’ll give you 2 songs from their first album released in 1994, long before I was into metal music, and the 2 recent full albums released by In Flames….

 

1994     LUNAR STRAIN

 

2014    SIREN CHARMS

 

2016   BATTLES

 

Hate them or like them, a musician should love what they’re doing, if not it’s pointless.  No need to please anyone else.  Over 20 + years they will evolve, the sound will change with each album.  That should be expected.  They’re not going to make “Lunar Strain” 18 times.

 

Here’s a few cover songs they have done.

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

Kim took Brewster for the weekend to see her parents.  I had all of this stuff on the weekend to do booked a long time ago.  Kim & Brewster are back now.

Music throughout the weekend.  “Metallica”, “Chromeo”, “Tremonti”, “Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds”, “Dead Sara”, & “Devin Townsend Project”

 

I went to the Saskatchewan Roughriders game Friday evening with my parents as usual.  First game of the regular season & we won 27-19.  I refuse to consume alcohol at the games.  $9 for one generic Pilsner.  If you double that, I can buy a case of 15 beers for $18.  I guess my pop was $6 though.

I forgot to bring my sugarless gum which keeps my mouth moist throughout the game.  One piece of it will conquer my dry mouth for an entire game & no need to rush off to the washroom either, it stays tasty too.

Saturday evening dad, his friend Dale & I went to a rum & bourbon tasting at Willow Park.  Very informative & a good intro to bourbon.  3 different types of rum & 3 types of bourbon.  ½ ounce of each & the table was set for everyone.  We also had some bread & a bottle of water to cleanse our palate between each taste.

After the tasting, each person gets a small discount, 10% I think?  I got a 26 ounce bottle of one of the rums & 12 Samuel Adams beer brewed in Boston.  I love rum & I’ve developed a taste for bourbon now, although I have yet to purchase bourbon.

Father’s Day!  My mom isn’t feeling great, I stayed home.  Kim came home & picked me up as I wanted to give my dad a mixed 6 pack of beer & I needed 1 other 6 pack to give him something different from what I had.  Delivered dad’s gift & picked up my pill refills.

 

BOSTON

I only have their self-titled album.  8 songs & they’re all really good!  You’ll likely know the first track.  The rest are FANTASTIC!  I wish somebody had told me how good this album is years ago!

 

I may have to look into getting a few more ‘Boston’ albums.

 

So……….Trump’s plan to “Make America Great Again” is basically bullying other countries?  I think it’s time to stop calling it the “G6 + 1 summit” to just the “G6 summit”.  He’s already taken America out of many other international agreements.  I say kick him to the curb and Canada should take a stab at being a neutral country!  Wait………Trudeau might have to think.  A pretty face like that shouldn’t have to think!

I fell asleep to “Nothing but Thieves” the album “Broken Machine”, followed by “Soundgarden” the album “Live on 1-5”

I exercised to “Foo Fighters” the album “There is Nothing Left to Lose”

Weekly exercise total; 1,200 pushups, 1,000 leg lifts, 500 crunches, 460 squats,  375 tricep pushups, & 200 back flexes.  Every day when I exercise I strive for it to be “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger”

Yeah, I was messing with the numbers again.

I put a lot of pressure on myself all of the time.  I wasn’t like that before cancer really.  When I was working I figured I’d better do the best I can since I’m being paid.  Same with being in a band.  People are paying to see our group play, they deserve to get the best show possible for however much they paid.  Even if it was a benefit show/fundraiser, they paid so let’s do this really well.

I never thought that about most other things, other than playing baseball.  That I actually practiced, with the team & on my own time.  “Dad would you please come hit some ground balls at me?”  “Could we go to the batting cages?”  “Can you toss some balls at my left hip, so I can practice hitting them into the back stop?”  I’d take off on my bike to throw a tennis ball in the area of where the ground would meet a wall & field it whether it was a ground ball or a fly ball.

High school was more of a “Meh, A-, good enough”.  I never really figured out how to study.  I just managed to go through school doing good enough, except university.  I’d study & read & still got poor results.

In SIAST/technical school, I just told myself to do things better.  I read the books & practiced the stuff I was about to be tested on.  I found it easier to do hands on stuff & figure out how to make it work.  I needed to do things hands on.  Reading a book is great, but I needed to experience what I was reading about.

MUSIANS & OTHER ARTISTS DO THEIR CRAFT REGARDING WHAT THEY KNOW OR HAVE EXPERIENCED!  IF THIS VIDEO OFFENDS YOU GREAT, IT SHOULD WATCH IT & FIGURE OUT WHAT YOU CAN DO TO PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING!

 

MATTHEW GOOD BAND

Another Canadian band.  Based in B.C.  I’ve got 6 albums & a single.  You really only need the final 3 albums that were BIG hits in Canada.  I have no clue how Canadian bands faired outside of Canada?  3 albums from 1997-2001 according to iTunes.  I thought the first album was released earlier, but we’ll go with 1997.  A group I wish would reunite, but I’m sure they won’t.  I don’t want to stir the pot, but I heard whispers that there was some animosity among a few members of the group?  Matthew Good went on to release a few solo albums after the group broke up.  I wasn’t big on them but I got the first 2 solo albums.  Here are 2 tracks from the 3 albums with the band & a song from each solo album I own………………..

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

Why does anybody but the military need a semi-automatic or automatic weapon?  We have guns in Canada, however we also have stricter gun laws.  You don’t need any type of automatic or semi-automatic gun to go hunting.  If a criminal doesn’t own an automatic or semi-automatic gun, why does anyone else need it for “protection”?

The Florida high school shooting happened & one kid saved many lives because he knew that this might happen.  Think about that for a minute please?

Why would anyone go to work or school thinking “Hey, I might get shot today?”  I never experienced that!  What was Trump’s big idea?  More guns are needed for the teachers to learn how to use it well & protect their students.  I’m far beyond the point of smacking any NRA member or any politician endorsing guns upside the head & asking them “Are you *&%$# stupid?  Do you need a few more slaps upside the head to get your gun loving head out of the clouds?  I can do this all day, I have nowhere to rush off to……litteraly.”

American politicians won’t listen to adults or kids, just the NRA since they pay the government so they can continue this ridiculous behavior.  What do they need from everybody else?  Maybe a 500,000 signed petition to have more gun control?  $1.00 more than the NRA gives to the government?

They can still own a gun, most people just want a bit more gun control!  This might actually change something this time.  The kids are standing their ground.  As an outsider in Canada watching this I’m incredibly proud of them & their demand for change.  Especially with many companies severing & distancing themselves from the NRA.  MEC is a great outdoors store.  We need to stop them from selling automatic & semi-automatic guns.  I’m guessing there are more stores in Canada that sell them, but that’s the one I saw on the news last night.

This was going to be about something totally different, then I saw reports about the shooting in Florida.

 

 

I hated “heavy” music for a long time.  I think I was 12 my mother & I went to Costco & she bought me U2’s album “The Joshua Tree”.  I pretty much had that album on repeat for a few weeks.  My mother has never been a fan of “U2”.  Of course U2 became my favourite band.  BMG & Columbia House became my way of acquiring the rest of U2’s catalogue.  12 CDs for $0.01 & 3 CDs at a normal price?  I’d fulfill my obligation to one company & switch to the other, multiple times.  I bought U2 CDs from the beginning of their catalogue all the way to the album “How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb” released in 2004.

That’s 16 albums including 2 double albums of their hit songs & unreleased songs.  I still listen to them & their new album “Songs of Experience” is very good, if you’re a U2 fan.  If not, don’t bother.

THE NEW ALBUM, “Songs of Experience”

 

I love documentaries about bands!  Stone Temple Pilots doc!  WOO HOO.  I think I heard that the Queen/Freddie Mercury documentary is done filming also?
