I fell asleep to “Paramore” again the album “After Laughter”, followed by a 1970s rock compilation called “Riff Rock High”

I exercised to “Corrosion of Conformity” the album “Deliverance”, followed by “Alice Cooper” the album “Paranormal”

 

Yes, I’m getting tired of talking about him & watching CNN like it’s going out of style.  He’s on a 17 day vacation.  I’m sure I have never taken 17 days off in a row since I had a summer break in elementary school!  How do you lead one of the most powerful countries in the world & just relax for 17 days?  Does this mean American’s get 17 days off too?  Crap, he still has Wi-Fi & his cell phone, be ready twitter followers.  I guess there are some renovations going on in “…that dump…” now as well (The White House according to Donnie).

Stephen Colbert nailed it saying “Change the locks while you’re at it”.  Hahaha! I feel sorry for the American public!  Nothing but bad news for our neighbors to the south.  Didn’t turn out the way most of us wanted.  But just like a random mass shooting, what ya gonna do?

With Donnie on vacation for so long, I hear there’s a term position available at the White House!  Hillary, Bernie you have plans this month?

 

THAT’S ALL FOR WHAT’S ON MY MIND & CANCER TALK!  HERE COMES THE POPCULTURE STUFF! 

 

My T-Shirts decided to turn to dust all at the same time?  I’ve never owned a Royal Blood shirt though?  I should have got one when I saw them in 2015.

I don’t really like doing reviews. I’ve been asked to do a review regarding the brand new football stadium, so here it is from the perspective of me in a wheelchair.
The brand new Mosaic Canadian Football League stadium in Regina. I’ve been lucky enough to have been at most Saskatchewan Roughrider games in Regina since I was old enough for my grandfather to hold me on his lap. I’m guessing since I was 3 years old. Now our season tickets are in my mother’s name, my parents & I go to the games now.
From my perspective at the games, this new stadium is FANTASTIC! There are 2 wheelchair washrooms that I can manage to get to by myself with ease. Our view of the field is excellent. When everybody stands up, we can see everything on the field still. When people directly in front of us stand, they’re around the height of our knees!
There are 9 instead of 2 elevators I hear, I’ve never had to use one at either stadium. We park directly across the street & enter on concourse level, our seats are also on concourse level. The stadium was built under ground level, it’s Regina’s Grand Canyon. We sit on the east side/sunny side. With our seats on ground level & the west side being higher with 2 levels the sun is out of our eyes sooner. If you’re wearing a hat or have sun glasses, the sun is no problem to deal with. Friends of ours sit on a level above us & have the same issues with the sun that the entire east side had at the old stadium.
I only have 2 minor complaints regarding the new stadium, which we were asked about at the exhibition game. Every regular seat has a cup holder, the wheelchair seats don’t. Wheelchair seating is basically a fenced in community in every section. The fence has a slightly larger post every 4-5 feet, I’m sure 2 cup holders on each large post could easily be done.
The other issue is that our section needs a metal plate on the ground over four small bumps on the entrance & exit to our wheelchair seats. I’m sure it’s coming since we noticed one section we passed already had one for the exhibition game. Other than those two things, I’d give the new Mosaic stadium a strong A or once those little things are corrected an A+!
There are many food & drink vendors in the stadium. That would be my only major complaint. The prices are outrageous, so I don’t purchase anything. I found out the hard way that a regular size can of pilsner beer costs $9. Found out at the exhibition game in June. I had a burger & 2 pilsners, cost me roughly $25? Coke & popcorn from now on, $12 or nothing at all.
The season ticket seats that I’ve been sitting in all of my life were pretty easy for me to get to with a little help from my father. He’d push my wheelchair up 2 ramps, help me walk up 10-12 stairs, & our seats were directly in front of us. We’d have to walk about 5 feet, go down one step, I’d sit & slide over to my spot. I was unable to have any fluids in me for about 5 hours, the washrooms weren’t very accessible at the old stadium. We’d get there an hour before the game & be among the last 100 people to leave the stadium. We didn’t want to slow anyone down or get in the way. Someone always offered to help which was nice. Standard response “Thanks we’re OK, just slow”.
5 hours without any fluid, I’d chew sugarless gum. It kept my mouth moist. Dry mouth is a side-effect from my medication. When my mouth gets dry, I’m really difficult to understand! It sounds similar to me speaking after 5 alcoholic beverages!

IF YOU’RE HERE FOR THE UPDATE, THAT’S ALL THAT I HAVE FOR YOU TODAY.

I adore Foo Fighters, I have for a long time. I’ll admit they’ve made a few songs I wasn’t really into. Their new album “Concrete & Gold” has me worried. I’ve heard 4 songs in total from their September release. 2 of the songs I really like, possibly 3. There is 1 song I could do without, & that 3rd song might sound really good recorded rather than live, which is how I heard the 3 other songs other than “Run”

I got the new album by ‘Stone Sour’ on Friday. I’d have to say their new album “Hydrograd” is my favourite album of theirs along with “Come What (ever) May”. It’s a FANTASTIC hard rock album! I’m looking forward to diving deeper into it.

As for ‘Tool’ or ‘A Perfect Circle’, I don’t know, but either one would be welcome. I guess if you believe, bassist Justin Chancellor of Tool, they’re roughly 90% done the album. Yet, A Perfect Circle stated they’d be in the studio this year as well. That’s all the info I can dig up for you, take it with a grain of salt. With these 2 bands I wait to believe them until I’ve got the album.

We rented “CHiPS” a few days ago. A raunchy comedy rated R, definitely not for kids. Good for a chuckle for adults though.

OK, Stone Sour & Nickelback have both released albums in the last 2 weeks like one or the other or both. Just because you’re anti this doesn’t mean you’re pro the other. You can like both or not like either. Nobody has the right to tell you what to listen to. I’m not a Nickelback fan, they have their place though, just not on my iTunes. Millions of other people like them though!



I say leave Nickelback alone if you don’t like them. I’m simply not a fan of theirs. I bought 2 of their very early albums & saw them in concert years ago. I like Stone Sour, bring on the haters, I guess? Like em’ or not Nickelback has done very well!

Flashback to 1975. When ‘Blondie’ played at CBGB!
http://www.rollingstone.com/music/videos/flashback-blondie-perform-at-cbgb-in-the-summer-of-1975-20130716

I’m always speaking on my behalf only. Just wanted to make that clear before writing this part. If Gene Simmons of KISS, can make money off of something, he’ll find a way to do so. I’m just waiting for the day he tries to trademark air & water……………….I don’t think that’s out of his realm? At least his latest effort was pulled back quickly due to rock & metal fans back lash!

I’ll catch you tomorrow, with a proper staycation update! In Canada we still have tomorrow off!

I fell asleep to “Ed Sheeran” the album “Divide”

I exercised to “Metallica” the new album “Hardwired……………….to Self-Destruct”

 

400 leg lifts, 160 pushups, planking, yoga, 200 crunches & 80 back flexes this past week.

That’s 100 leg lifts, 40 pushups, 20 back flexes, planking, 100 crunches & yoga 5 days a week.  First thing I do when I leave the bedroom, then breakfast & a shower.

I just added the crunches on Thursday, 100 crunches a day.  The crunches had nothing to do with my back!  I know what caused it, I’ve had back issues since high school.  My wheelchair seat was over inflated & the squats always hurt my back a bit.  So I’m going to continue doing 100 crunches a day.  I could also just twist in my seat to borrow a pen & my back would go out?  That’s what happened in grade 10?

Kim had Wednesday off, so I took it off too.  I got in the shower while she went out to get coffees & cinnamon buns.  We sat on the balcony before it got too warm.  I can’t get out there in my wheelchair.  Kim has to help me, or I can crawl out if needed.  Came inside watched a bit of TV.  Kim went for a roller blade.  She showered, we watched a little more TV, and then we went to see “Wonder Woman” in the comfy recliners at the Southland Mall.  I don’t know where it came from but we had a movie pass that we used today!

I spent 1 day a week, for almost exactly a year being in the pool during my physiotherapy.  I can’t swim anymore.  I was lowered into the pool by what’s called a “Hoyer” lift.  It’s basically a crane for people who can’t walk.  Once I was in the pool there’s a rail all the way around the pool for me to hold on to.  I was able to walk & do some different physio exercises, all while holding on to the rail.  The pool is only 5 feet deep & it’s heated.  It’s quite a bit like a warm bath.  I would walk to each side of the pool holding the railing.  I’d float on my back with weights on my feet & I was to kick my feet during that time.  One leg is stronger than the other, I’d kick my feet & go in circles.  My therapist had me try a different walker in the pool as well, that didn’t work out to well.

 

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

The songs “Madness” & “Dig Down” by Muse are done with an electric bass I have never seen anyone else use.

 

Cool!  Another great tune from the new “Royal Blood” album.  This & Big Wreck were/are my most anticipated album of 2017, until I found out Foo Fighters’ may have a release this year.  Royal Blood is not a metal band, if you’re worried about that.  The singer plays a distorted electric bass & the other member of the group plays drums.  That’s all, just the 2 of them!

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.

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?”

I fell asleep to “The Watchmen” the album “Live & in Stereo”

I exercised to “Paramore” the new album “After Laughter”

100 crunches, 50 leg lifts, & 30 pushups per day.  Weekly total is 500 crunches, 250 leg lifts, & 150 pushups. I won’t be raising the total of crunches for a while (as much as I’d like too), leg lifts will increase, & the pushups have already increased by 10 a day.

All of these numbers feel very low to me at the moment.  I feel like I can & should raise the amount of reps because I know I can do them.  I agree though to carry on with caution.  The leg lifts work on my lower ab muscles which the crunches don’t activate & they’re done lying on my back, at some point I’ll ad the lifts on my hands & knees.  I’ll ad some back flexes next week.  Flat on the ground, front side down, then lift all of your limbs at the same time.  Probably 10-20 of them.

Although it feels like I should do more, it feels good to do something productive, no matter how much I do.  Sitting around with a bad back is something I do not want to do again!

Foo Fighters announced a hiatus for 2016 & had fun announcing it with this video announcing it.  My question is, one finger on a keyboard sounds like a TON of chart topping pop music.  So I guess that’s what the masses want.  Call me old, 37, but does anyone actually relate to current pop music?  There is good pop music out, for me it’s not the top 10 stuff.  If I had to choose one current pop artist to listen to it would be Bruno Mars or Ed Sheeran.

I fell asleep to “System of a Down” the album “Steal This Album”

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

Busy morning CT scan at 9:30, I can’t eat until after the scan so Kim & I went for brunch after.  Went to Sportchek where Kim got me 2 pairs of shorts & new shoes/sneakers.  Everything was on sale & I found good shoes on the clearance shelf.  Then we got Brewster from my parents’ house.  The scan is just my routine scan before I see my Cancer Clinic doctor later on in the summer whenever that is?  We’ll call the shorts & shoes my anniversary gift.  Our 12th anniversary is on Sunday!

Exercise total for the week; 500 crunches, 250 leg lifts, 100 pushups.  So currently that’s; 100 crunches, 50 leg lifts, & 20 pushups a day.  I’ll up the numbers slowly to 1000 crunches every other day, then planking on the next day instead, 100 leg lifts, & hopefully 100 pushups a day.  No squats at least until I meet with the surgeon or after the surgery if I can get it.

I’ve been doing my exercise first thing in the morning all week, except on Monday when it was a sauna in here.  Sure it takes a while as I will increase the numbers.  I have the time though, more time than anyone with an 8 hour job 5 days a week, &/or kids to keep track of.

From Tuesday, February 5th 2008 – Thursday, July 26th 2012.  I missed EVERYTHING!  Not all that bad though.  All that mattered was me getting better.  Of course I missed everyone, friends & family.  Missing everything is probably why I saturate myself in pop culture?  That’s not real life all of the time though.  I like just hanging out with a small group of friends.  I can’t drive though, so sometimes/most times we invite people here.  Of course I clear it with Kim first.

That was a time when I had to be completely selfish & just focus on getting stronger & healthier.  All of that being said, it really does feel better to give than receive.  Wait……………I guess you all got me………………if you wanted or not.  Hahahahahaha!

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

Immediately after I posted Wednesday’s blog “Paramore” released a 2nd video from their album “After Laughter” out on May 12th.   They even broke ‘Spotify’ for a bit on Wednesday.

 

YAY!  “Nothing but Thieves” have an album coming out in September!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The first album was & is FANTASTIC!  It’s not a metal or hard rock album at all.  More like early Radiohead.

If you ask me, I’ll take their 2nd album, The Bends, over any of their other albums, & their 3rd album, OK Computer, is considered one of the most important alternative albums of all time!

 

Linkin Park announce North American tour.

I wouldn’t expect a “Tool” album this year.  Good chance that there will be an “A Perfect Circle” album though.  I heard an interview with Maynard.  He basically said that he sees many road blocks for one band.  I’m guessing it’s Tool?  He didn’t want to name which band it was though.  In a different clip drummer, Danny Carey of Tool, laughed at the thought of a Tool album being released this year.  I hope A Perfect Circle doesn’t release something like the album of cover songs that sound dark & dreary & nothing that resembles the original versions.  Long audio interview!!!!!!!!!!!!

LANGUAGE IN THE INTERVIEW!  SKIP TO 40:00 FOR THE INFO!!!!!!!

LANGUAGE!!!!!  This is about his anger at God after his mother suffered a stroke.

 

Recall on Bombay gin.  Is this a bad thing?  If it’s got double the alcohol it’s like a 2 in 1!  Half a shot is good enough, it will last longer.  Or you’ll down it in two weekends & never drink gin again!

http://www.cbc.ca/news/business/bombay-sapphire-gin-recall-1.4097353

I like gin but I drink Tanqueray, the green bottle!  I can’t remember when the last time was that I had a drink?  Maybe a month ago?

 

Cool a Netflix Marvel character show!

 

How to clean your Keurig to keep going longer!

Between these 2 songs they’ve been viewed over 21,000,000 million times. This is as of Thursday afternoon.

“Hard Times” 19,800,344 times

“Told you so” 2,875,951 times

Is this 5th album going to make them a house hold name?

 

Another metal video shared by The Agonist!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I fell asleep to “Pearl Jam” the album “Ten”

Just stretching to “Soundgarden” the album “Badmotorfinger”

 

Yes, I’m feeling better, I just have an annoying cough that I can’t shake off.  My chiropractor saw my MRI.  He said I could have surgery ASAP or leave it until later on.  My leg & back feel fine right now, but I’ll see the surgeon & have the surgery as soon as I can.  Why wait, let’s get it done & over with.

I chatting with a friend of mine who’s friend’s daughter was mugged & shot in the face.  The daughter is 24-25.  My friend was angry that something that stupid & random could even happen.  Kim & I watch The Ellen Degeneres Show every day.  First thing when Kim gets home from work.  I couldn’t find the author she had on the show Wednesday, but I tried to remember something the author said.  The author of the book had lost a young child.

I remember the author saying ‘Don’t ask if you can do something.  Just do something to help.  Don’t make them reach out to you.’  That really got to me, that’s what I told my friend.

I never thought of it that way?  I’ll remember that.  Of course they need help, anyone in that situation would.  The smallest thing can go a long way.

Nothing is certain in life other than “I know I was born & I know that I’ll die the in between is mine”

Sure, the in between is yours but there’s often random people or things that can mess with your life.  You have to learn how to deal with situations that arise.

I remember being in the hospital & people would ask me what I needed or wanted.  Cam & Michelle asked me what I needed.  I wanted to live, but that’s not what I asked for.  I asked for a copy of “Batman: The Dark Knight” that had recently been released.  My uncle in Airdrie, Alberta also asked what I needed I said ‘The Rick Mercer Report’ book.

I don’t know what I was thinking, the fact that they caught me awake was a shot in the dark!  I watched the movie in the hospital.  I tried to read the book but didn’t realize I had bad double vision.

I didn’t really know I had cancer with a very slim chance of surviving.  I figured I was maybe sleep deprived or something like that.  Corey brought me the 2nd Thornley album that he knew I was waiting for.  Laurie brought me 2 signed guitars, 1 signed by Ian Thornley for me, & 1 signed by Chad Kroeger of “Nickelback” to raffle off.

Those all may seem like little insignificant things, but they’re were all sincere & showed that they care.

 

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.

 

I just googled release dates for 2017 that are confirmed, but yet to be recorded, I saw no Tool.  I did see A Perfect Circle though under the TBA section.

 

Highly Suspect made a 2nd video from their 2nd album.  “The Boy Who Died Wolf” the song “Little One” LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Todd Bryanton’s “Beep Beep I’m a Sheep” got a remix!

 

Took long enough.  The Stone Sour album has a release date on June 30th, preorder is now available on iTunes

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

 

Dave Grohl & his mother, Virginia Grohl, on Stephen Colbert

 

Soundgarden shared it.  I was listening to this album earlier this week!

 

I like these guys catchy pop band that still remind me of INXS light.

I don’t get the point of reissued albums?  Always comes off to me as a cash grab for the artist or their estate.

FYI I saw a photo earlier this week of Soundgarden rehearsing & the caption said “Rehearsing for tour”
