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

I fell asleep to “In Flames” the album “I, the Mask”

I exercised to “Pink” the album “Hurts 2B Human”, followed by “Pentatonix” their only original album which is self-titled.

 

This is a bit late.  I had a routine CT scan early this morning, nothing’s wrong, just time for a routine cancer checkup later on, probably in June.  They’ll need the CT scan results.

I’ll turn 40 next year, I’m not scared of 40 at all.  I don’t think it’s anything to worry about.  Why wasn’t I terribly scared of 19, or any other birthday?  “Ooooh you’re 40 that’s another step towards being old & closer to death!!!!!!!!!”  Every birthday is a step closer to death, heck every second is a step closer to death.  So why do we celebrate birthdays?  We’re here, so we should be happy that we are still here!

I survived cancer.  What does this tell me?  I’m not done whatever I’m supposed to do, & I need to continue celebrating my birthdays.  Life is short enough as it is, better have fun since we’re here for a short time.  Look at the calendar, it says 2019 that’s over 2000 years & the Earth is older than 2019 years!  Make your time here fun.  We are but a blip in the Grand Scheme of things!

Yesterday was a day to celebrate!  Wedding anniversary.  BEST. DAY.  OF.  MY LIFE!!!!  It’s a birthday for two people that decided to get married.  She REALLY took the wedding vows seriously!  Even one of my doctors at the cancer clinic called her “The best wife I have ever seen”.  I was 6 days past my 28th birthday when I went into the hospital.  For 4 ½ years Kim was there with me 24/7.  She stayed with me, she’d take me to my therapy sessions, have lunch at the food court in the Wascana Rehabilitation Program, sleep on whatever shady looking cot they could find, set up my IV for me at the cabin, drive me everywhere, etc.  Kim truly is “The nurse who loves me”.

Sure it was rough time, but with Kim it was much better with her than it would have been on my own.  I wouldn’t be here without her.

 

13 years & new Tool music has been heard?  When I can purchase new Tool music, I’ll believe it.

It was our 14th wedding anniversary yesterday.  It was also 23 years ago that Pantera released their album “The Great Southern Trendkill”

LAMB OF GOD

If you don’t like them that’s fine, metal isn’t for everyone.  If you’re hung up on awards, they’ve won around 5 or 6 Grammy Awards.  Yes they’re my favourite metal band.  5 guys from Richmond, Virginia.  Very misleading name though.  Their original name was “Burn the Priest” for their first release & a recent cover album.  The first album from “Burn the Priest” I can’t stand.  They’re not rich from being musicians, iTunes was already a thing.  As the vocalist said “I get to scream at people, travel the world, & sell T-Shirts!”  He had an alcohol addiction & dealt with it.  He’s been sober for around 8 years.  They have 7 studio albums as “Lamb of God”.  I’ll give you a couple of song from 3 full albums & a song from their 5 song EP.  The following is a part of the reason Kim & I don’t play our music around each other.

 

I would just assume there’s LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

2004   ASHES OF THE WAKE   (My favourite album by them)

 

2006   SACRAMENT   (The album that made me dig deeper into their catalogue)

 

2015   VII: STURM UND DRANG

 

2016   THE DUKE EP

The Duke is about a fan of the band who became a friend of the vocalist.  The fan had cancer & unfortunately died.  They made this EP after his passing.

With this band I can start with their 2nd album as “Lamb of God”- present, “As the Palaces Burn”.  All killer, no filler!  All the way to “Sturm und Drang”, The EP “The Duke”, & The cover album they released under the name “Burn the Priest”

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

Music throughout the weekend.  “Pearl Jam”, “Queens of the Stone Age”, “A Perfect Circle”, “Chromeo”

Friday was tame.  Finished my exercises for the week, did very little stuff that needed to be done.  Watched the first episode of the “Newsroom”, then watched the Blue Jays give away a game to the Tampa Bay Rays.

Saturday I stayed in bed too long.  Kim went out to grab a few things.  I got up & used our instant pot to hard boil some eggs for the week.  Then I watched the Blue Jays try to lose another game but they got the win, it was sloppy but it still counts as a win.

Folded & put away some laundry, quiet weekend.  We watched some crave TV for a bit, then Kim rented “On the Basis of Sex” the story of how Ruth Bater Ginsberg got to where she is today, despite sexist laws.  I could tell I was catching a flu or cold.  I was getting warmer & aching in my bones.

We got the “Crave TV” app last week.  Kim is almost done the series “A Handmaid’s Tale” & I’ve just started “The Newsroom”

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   First scene of the first episode.  This was before Trump’s time.

I got the aching in my bones & joints again, no fever yet, “phlegm” though today.

No blog post until Thursday & then late on the following Monday.

 

ROB ZOMBIE (former singer of White Zombie)

I know right now a PILE of metal fans are freaking out, because of this next sentence.  I much prefer “Rob Zombie” as a solo artist to the band “White Zombie”.  He’s likely thrown in to the “Nu Metal” genres because he doesn’t fit into any other specific metal sub-genres.

If you ever see him in an interview, WATCH IT!  He may look odd with his dreads & clothing choice, but HOLY COW is he a smart guy, & a really good interview!  He’s a shock rocker, he’s toured with “Alice Cooper” & currently with Marilyn Manson, and no I’m not a fan of Marilyn Manson.

When he toured with “Alice Cooper” they’d watch the other guys set, & try to out-shock each other the next night.

“Rob Zombie” is also a writer & director known for graphic horror movies.  One of his first movies was called “The Devil’s Rejects”

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!          

I did get to see him open for “Ozzy Osbourne” in Saskatoon in 2006?  For me, “Rob Zombie” was just a little bit better.

I have 2 studio albums of his & a greatest hits album.  I’ll give you a sampling from his greatest hits.  Please just assume there’s offensive & sexual LANGUAGE!!!!!

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

I fell asleep to “Coheed and Cambria” the album “Good Apollo I’m Burning Star IV…”

I exercised to “Dead Sara” the album “Dead Sara”

 

This is a bit late today, sorry.  We had eye appointments this morning.  Then we came home to do my exercises after & Kim bolted to a meeting at work.

So I guess this makes me 10 years & 4 days cancer free.  The doctors thought my cancer might come back in 2013.  Thankfully it didn’t.  I would have been disappointed, & I wouldn’t want others to freak out, but many would have.

I’m not scared of death, I’m scared of how I’ll die though (hopefully in 50 years).  I’m not afraid of being dead though.  Hopefully it means that I’ve accomplished all that I needed to & it’s my time to go.

How were my holidays?  Very good, but glad to do something productive aka I’m ready for a break from my break.  I got to see my wife’s family for our first Christmas this year, Kim’s aunt Lorna was here too!  They were here from the afternoon of December 20th & drove home on the afternoon of the 24th.  Then we had our second Christmas with my family at my parents’ place.  Family from Calgary & Winnipeg came here this year too.  Good holiday, great time seeing so many people!

We had multiple Christmas’.  Kim’s family, my family, Timothy Wong & his son Nicholas, Chris Hutton & Laurie with their 2 kids, & Corey McDonald & Jolene with their 2 kids.

 

Exercise total for 2018; 26,675 pushups, 14,560 tricep lifts, 26,710 leg lifts, 7,660 back flexes, 15,220 crunches, 14,440 squats.

FYI – I DON’T LOOK AS THOUGH I’VE DONE MUCH EXERCISE AT ALL?

 

Top 10 albums of the year for me!  Singles, EPs, & live albums are only accepted as honorable mentions!  Before we get into my top 10 albums, here’s www.loudwire.com top 30 hard rock albums of the year.

Kim had Monday off, so this is/was a 4 day week exercise total; 400 pushups, 300 tricep pushups, 200 back flexes, 300 squats, 400 leg lifts, 200 crunches.

I fell asleep to “Ed Sheeran” the album “Divide”, followed by “The 1975” the album “I love it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it”

I exercised to “Muse” the album “Origin of Symmetry”

I love the days I do pushups & tricep lifts.  For about 3 minutes after, my arms look huge.  After 3 minutes or so, not so much.  L  As much as I’m getting tired of exercising 5 or 4 days a week, it’s a necessary evil.  Some days I’m up at 7:00 am bright eyed & ready to go.  Other days I would love to stay in bed since I’m so comfy & warm.  Either way I know I MUST do my exercises & whatever else I can do around the house.  I can’t wait for a breather in December followed by a flat out rest for a few days around Christmas.  Come January 2nd it all starts up again.

I’m 6’1” when I got sick apparently I was shockingly tall.  When I moved to the WRC, they scrambled to find a bed for someone my height?  As my dad said “You should have told them you’re the runt of the litter”.  My younger brother is 6’3” and my 2nd or 3rd cousin, who is only a few years older than me, has to duck when he walks through a doorway.  I can’t imagine the horror on their faces if they had to find a bed for him!

 

“This is Spinal Tap” 25 year reunion movie with the original cast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just once I should have gone on stage and yelled “HELLO CLEVELAND” I’d likely be among the very few that would find it funny!

 

Seth McFarlane’s “The Orville” returns to TV on Sunday, December 30th 2018!!!!!

 

Ooohhh!  Aquaman in theaters December 21st

I’ll see it in January probably.

Deadpool 2 limited showings rated PG 13.  Must be a short movie!

 

PINK THE ALBUM “BEAUTIFUL TRAUMA”/CARPOOL KARAOKE

If it wasn’t a FANTASTIC album, it wouldn’t be on here.  I don’t know much about her.  She’s married & has a young girl.  She wrote the current theme song for ‘The Ellen Degeneres Show’.  Her real name is Alecia Moore.  She was born in 1979.  She seems to have been releasing albums for quite a while.  We have her “Greatest Hits…so far”, “The Truth about Love”, & “Beautiful Trauma”.  I REALLY like her “Greatest Hits” & “Beautiful Trauma” albums.  Her first album was released in 2000, “Can’t Take me Home” I still remember the first video I saw from that album.  Her first studio album to start the total of 7 studio albums.

Now we’ll go right to the 2017 release “Beautiful Trauma”

Music from this weekend!  “Dead Sara”, “Big Wreck”, “Foo Fighters”, more “Dead Sara”, “A Perfect Circle”, & “Nothing But Thieves”.

STRONG LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Friday was regularly quiet, that’s getting old, but everyone is tired on Fridays.  I get to cram 8 hours of energy in 1 – 1 ½ hours in the morning & plant myself on the couch until I feel like showering in the afternoon.  Most people have to spread their energy out over 8 hours or more. I get to use it all right away, then rest.  I’d like to do something on Friday night, but I understand why others don’t want to do anything.

Saturday was, wake up at 7:00 am, go back to bed & sleep until 11:00 am.  Kim went grocery shopping with her sister, I made my weekly vegetable juice & took care of some dirty dishes while she was out.

For supper, Kim picked up some steak to BBQ to go with the sweet potato fries.  So Kim, steak, beer, & football for a Saturday night, pretty sweet deal here!  B.C. lost to Calgary which means the Saskatchewan Roughriders have a home playoff game next weekend against arch rivals the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.  Whenever Winnipeg is in town, it’s always a fun game!

Today is hard boiling some eggs, baking some fish & such, getting ready for the week ahead.

 

Dream Theater, Big Wreck, In Flames, Megadeth, Lamb of God, Alter Bridge & Tool (which I’ll believe when I see it) have all started the writing &/or recording process for release’s next year!

You will NEVER hear this song by Tool live!  Rumor is Maynard James Keenan couldn’t speak for 3 weeks after recording the vocals?

 

JACK JOHNSON

7 studio albums in total.  I own 6 of them on CD.  He’s from Hawaii & does a lot of surfing.  He would film himself & his friends surfing.  I think he put his music on the videos & then started releasing his music to the masses?  Don’t quote me on that last comment.  The 3rd album has the song for our first dance at our wedding, we had a hard time finding a song we agreed on.  I seem to prefer his first album though?  Anyways, here are a few songs from his first album….

 

2001   BRUSHFIRE FAIRYTALES

Music from this weekend!  “Greta Van Fleet”, “Nothing But Thieves”, “Live”, “A Perfect Circle”, “Coheed and Cambria”, & “Halestorm”

 

Really quiet here.  I realized on Friday I had some other TV shows recorded on our PVR.  I watched them & one episode of “Making a Murderer” before Kim got home.  She had many TV shows to watch on the PVR, of course we watched “The Elle Degeneres Show” first, as usual.

Saturday I moved from our bed to our couch & kitchen.  Cereal, yogurt & rum, TV (not all at the same time) later on.  Then 4 episodes of “Making a Murderer”.  Kim is sort of watching it too.

Today, Kim got up & went for coffee with Jolene.  The 4 of us met each other in SIAST.  Corey & Jolene were engaged a week or 2 before us & married roughly 4 months after us.  Really good people, great friends, & awesome parents to our “niece” & “nephew”.

Went over to our friends’ place this afternoon, Chris & Laurie’s for an afternoon visit, also really good people, friends, & they also have 2 cool kids.

Now it’s get ready for the week time.

 

Review of “Greta Van Fleet” & “The Struts”.  The Struts’ 2nd album is not actually out until October 26th.

CLASSIC BANDS   PART 1

These are the masterpieces.  Great bands that I like from before my time!

“Queen”

 

“Led Zeppelin”

That’s why ‘Physical Graffiti’ is my favourite LZ album

 

“The Beatles”

I saw ‘Our Lady Peace’ cover this, & now ‘The White’ album is my favourite ‘Beatles’ album!

 

“Stevie Wonder”

Stevie Wonder’s ‘Songs in the Key of Life’ is easily my favourite Stevie Wonder album.  I should just add this song to it…

 

“The Police”

 

“Pink Floyd”

 

“The Jackson 5”

 

“Alice Cooper”

Music throughout the weekend. “Foo Fighters”, “Queens of the Stone Age”, “Alter Bridge”, “Dead Sara”, “Halestorm”, “A Perfect Circle”, & “Eric Clapton”

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

Friday evening was quite tame.  We watched “The Ellen Degeneres Show” as usual when Kim gets home, I watched half of the Blue Jays game, then we binge watched 4 episodes of “The Fosters” on Netflix.  We’re half way through season 3.

Saturday morning Kim picked up our friends daughter & took her out for a while.  I got up while they were out & watched the last 3 innings of the baseball game.  Then I watched the pre-game for Saturday’s Blue Jays game.

Then Kim & Hannah came here to paint, colour, use the sticker books, have lunch, etc.  By then I was watching the “Banjo Bowl” between the Saskatchewan Roughriders & the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in Winnipeg.  That finished & I watched Saturday’s Blue Jays game.  Once that was over, Kim wanted to watch more of “The Fosters”.  We binge watched 3 episodes & went to bed.

While Hannah was here, she was very intrigued by “Uncle” Chris’ new Roughrider green wheelchair!  She spent quite a bit of time going across our suite & turning around to go back the other way, after we helped her figure out how to use it.  She’s a better driver than me.  She also watched some of the football game.  She told me “Uncle Chris.  In our house, we always cheer for the Riders”.  Smart kid, she’s being raised by good parents!

Went over to Corey & Jolene’s place for a BBQ.  Beer + meat = good times.  A get together for a bunch of us to see Kayll, Shannon, & toddler Emmett!

Why bother making the announcement to not play a song?  Even “Big Wreck” did this with the song “Ladylike” from their 2001 album “The Pleasure & the Greed”

 

This was supposed to be about Mike Myers channeling ‘Wayne’s World’ but nothing says “Alice Cooper” like bubble machines!  Hahahahahahaha!  I love Alice Cooper!

 

 

PHIL COLLINS/GENESIS

I’ve always enjoyed Genesis & Phil Collins, together & Phil Collins as a solo artist.  Phil Collins was the drummer in Genesis while Peter Gabriel was the singer.  I don’t know if Peter Gabriel left or was forced out of the band?  Phil Collins took over as singer when Peter Gabriel was out of the band.  Who is Peter Gabriel you ask?  This guy…

I was born in 1980.  My parents didn’t listen to ‘80s hair metal, so I wasn’t exposed to that music.  I grew up to what they listened to.  I wasn’t exposed to my generation’s music until I was in high school in the early ‘90s.  I did purchase the Genesis album “We can’t Dance” which was released in 1991 & I probably bought it when I could drive or asked my mom to buy it for me at Costco?  All that I own now is a Genesis Greatest Hits album & a couple of Phil Collins Greatest Hits albums from iTunes.
