I fell asleep to “Walk off the Earth” the album “Sing it all Away”, followed by “Trivium” the album “Ascendency”

Just a lot of stretching this week to “Pentatonix” their new EP of covers “Vol. IV”

YAY, multiple doctor appointments set for me.  MRI, Cancer clinic, “sedatives” for the MRI (I’m extremely claustrophobic), blood work, & hopefully a cortisone shot as well.  Pretty much routine stuff other than the MRI & cortisone shot.  I hope to breeze through all of this, & get back to exercising!

A bit of a mixed up day.  My regular doctor is having surgery & is off until May.  I need to get a prescription from him before then for my MRI.

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you.  Slow/Quiet week.  Stretching everyday & many routine appointments to come by the end of July.

I see no Tool album in the near future?  Tool is touring & then A Perfect Circle plans to tour & record.  There’s only so much singer Maynard James Keenan can do.  I assume his 3rd band (Puscifer) & his vineyard are taking a backseat at the moment?

24 years ago Thursday, Tool released their first full length album “Undertow”.  Before that was a live EP and there has been 4 full length albums up to the 2006 release “10,000 Days”.  We are now on our 11th year of waiting for a follow up to “10,000 Days”.  As fans we’ve waited 3,747 + a few leap year days for a new release from Tool.  This means we have a few more decades to wait if the album is coming in “10,000 Days”!

Trivium’s Matt Heafy plays Radiohead cover on acoustic guitar

Sorry, just found a new band, & they are quite new.  They’re called “Halflives”, just thought I’d keep you posted.  1 album out next Friday, & 3 singles.  All available on iTunes.

They remind me of “Paramore”.  Fairly pop but just a bit heavier, at least that’s how I’d describe them.

 

I got “Pentatonix” & “The Watchmen” this morning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Both are FANTASTIC!!!!!!

No blog post tomorrow & today is a very busy day, however I am sticking with my exercise.  As of my exercise this morning I’m at 800 crunches, 80 pushups, & 50 leg lifts.  By the end of the week it will be a total of 1000 crunches, 100 pushups, & the leg lifts can stay where they are, I felt some pain so I’ve decided to let them be for now.

I fell asleep to “The Philosopher Kings” the album “Famous, Rich, & Beautiful” I got up to tinkle & listened to “Muse” the album “Black Holes & Revelations” as I fell asleep

I didn’t even think to turn on the “stereo” when I exercised.  Busy day today, not much time for the computron today.

Don’t feel as though you have to open every link.

I was watching the news a few nights ago & came to a solution regarding cell phones being used as weapons in terrorist attacks!  Get rid of them!  How did most people fly without a phone until everybody & their dog got one?  Wait………….next to nobody had a phone, laptop or tablet.

Remember before all of these gadgets were around?  What happened when one person didn’t share or play nice with a toy?  No one got to play with it.  Easy, out of sight, out of mind.  No more laptops, tablets, cell phones or any electronic devices allowed on the plane.  You forgot it was in your pocket?  Not my problem, it goes in this garbage bag now or you go back to where you came from with it……………………………….HAVE A NICE DAY!

Of course I hate the entire idea of cell phones which I’m sure is a common pet peeve many people would like to change.  If you’re going to a public venue, restaurant, theater, concert, loud bar, airplane, etc.  Whatever it may be, please show some common courtesy…..they annoy me to no end, I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one.  If you’re at a certain venue doing or enjoying a certain activity, why isn’t the person you’re chatting with, come & join you?  Other than that or an emergency, what do you need your phone for?

Someone should invent a harness to go around your chest like a tube top & have a cell phone holder attached to the front that extends 2 ½ feet from your chest.  Then your phone would always be available!

From a random www.google.com search

“According to data compiled by New York-based app Locket, the average user checks their phone around nine times an hour at peak times. On average, users unlock their phone 110 times a day and a quarter of people actively use their handsets during the hours of 3am and 5am”

I found one with a lesser count but it was from 2015?

Me:  “Who are you talking to?”

Phone User:  “Ronda”

Me: “I don’t know Ronda?”

PU: “She needs help with a recipe”

Me: “Ask Ronda to wait?  Neither of us invited her & the recipe won’t go anywhere, unless she moves it.”

Call it rude but it’s no ruder to me than someone spending their time & attention on someone not with us or is not the subject of anything to do with our conversation.

In the end, there is no book on how to use a mobile devices, so use it as you like.  Please don’t forget that in a public setting your use of a phone can affect other peoples’ experience.

 

Tool is on tour…………again, which means no in studio work for Tool at the moment or any work for Maynard in the studio with A Perfect Circle.  All I know is that Tool has one song done for sure!

 

From Thurston Moore.  From a grunge band that didn’t become a house hold name “Sonic Youth”

Here’s The Warped Tour lineup for 2017.  This has more metal type acts than I would expect on a punk festival lineup!?

http://loudwire.com/warped-tour-announces-2017-full-band-lineup/

Not necessarily bands I’d like to see though.

 

I wish Regina offered the FX channel on cable.  I’d watch the TV series “Fargo” if I had the chance.  I loved the movie!

 

Are you easily offended?  If so, DO NOT WATCH Dave Chappelle’s standup comedy special on Netflix!  HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I fell asleep to “Radiohead” the album “OK Computer” followed by “Lamb of God” the album “Sacrament”

Don’t feel as though you need to open every link.

I hope you all have fun tonight & get home safe!  No drinks for me.  I’m on some powerful muscle relaxants for my annoying nerve.  A few days after I was in the WRC they put on a “happy hour” for the residents.  I went to it.  I’m on multiple pills 3 times a day & I’m not supposed to drink then they turn around & have one of the nurse’s hand out 2 free drinks to anyone?  Holy mixed messages Batman? I don’t remember if I was able to drink anything at the time.  I couldn’t drink anything for quite a while.  My water & food came through IV for a few years.  My IV was full of a liquid called TPN.  I think it was 2010 that I was able to drink through a straw.  Even beer.  You don’t see that “every day”.

Yeah, I saw my chiropractor yesterday.  My dad took me.  I left here before 2:00 pm, then stayed at my parents’ house until after supper.  Kim had a hair appointment & wasn’t going to be home until 8:00pm or so.  Mom sent home some supper for her.

The chiropractor said it moved really well yesterday, & first did a lot of work on my ribs that had moved.  It feels REALLY good now.  He told me to gradually work into a not so demanding exercise & to keep up with my stretches.  So I did today.  Stretches, 100 crunches & 20 pushups.  As far as the leg exercises go, I plan to do them once everything feels 100% better.  Better safe than sorry.

My routine at the moment is slightly wonky, with my nerve being stubborn.  I get up & get ready at 7:00am.  By the time I do that, & pour a cup of coffee it’s near 7:30.  I watch 2 of the 3 late night talk shows I record, then CNN…………….& I laugh about not having a leader who thinks he can do whatever he wants.  I think I see Sean Spicer flapping his lips, trying to spin a quote from Trump, more often than I see Kim?  I can just imagine how he feels when his alarm goes off.  “Ah, what am I gonna have to spin today.  Wait I’ll check twitter”

The “Radiohead” album “OK Computer” is & always has been considered one of the most important albums of all time.  The really cool thing was they wrote it while on tour for the album “The Bends” in the late 1990s & Foo Fighters were opening for them.  Foo Fighters would do a 10:00 minute sound check, then Radiohead would do a 2 hour sound check arguing about how to arrange the songs.  Go to 15:12 in the video to hear FF drummer Taylor Hawkins talk about opening for Supergrass & Radiohead way back when.

Expected/anticipated hard rock & metal releases for 2017.  A lot of I don’t know, I don’t really care, I don’t think so, a few I can’t wait, & if there’s a new A Perfect Circle being released, we can wait even longer for the next Tool release.  Maynard probably won’t sing on 2 different albums then he’s supposed to tour with A Perfect Circle.  All of this while maintaining a vineyard?

I fell asleep to “Prince” the album “Purple Rain”.  I woke up to pee & put on “Tool” the album “Lateralus”

I exercised to “Ascot Royals” the 2017 release “New Skin” only 7 songs, then I put on “Big Wreck” the new album “Grace Street”

I’ve got some “Into Eternity” the album “Dead or Dreaming” in the house today

 

Sunday February 3rd, 2008 was the day I was shoveling snow in our backyard.  I sat down on our steps while I experienced the most painful headache of my life.  It didn’t last long & it was at the base of my skull in the back.  Kim saw me through the kitchen window & told me to come inside.  My headache probably lasted 3 minutes & then I was fine.  I slept fine & went to work on Monday, after a week off with a bad stomach flu.

I was fine on Monday the entire day.  I didn’t even think anything of my painful/short headache.

Tuesday, February 5th 2008, again all was fine.  Kim & I were carpooling to work.  We had bought a used Pontiac Grand Am, which looked new.  We bought it roughly a year prior.  It was more used as a replacement for my Ford Tempo, which had seen better days!  I dropped of Kim & went to work.  I think it was still in the morning.  I was about to put on the printing plates for a job.  Two of my co-workers came over & told me I looked very pale.  I felt fine & carried on as usual.  Then it all happened.

I sat down on the cat-walk of my press, then I laid down on it, none of this is normal.  I called for my co-worker and said “Call 911”.  I was almost out.  The paramedics came ASAP.  Kim had been called at the same time.  She went to leave & realized I had the car.  Her boss drove her over.  I was put on a stretcher & was taken into the ambulance.  The last thing I remember was Kim getting into the ambulance & me saying “It’ll be alright sweetie”.  Apparently I was alert & answering many questions.  I don’t remember a thing though.  I was in a coma for 4 or 5 weeks with a 5-15% chance of coming out of a coma.  I slept for a year only waking up for painkillers.  On December 31st 2008 I was declared cancer free.  I really did nothing, my body took over while I pretty much slept for a year & I’m sure there was a good chunk of good luck involved.

I was discharged from my therapies at the Wascana Rehabilitation Center on Thursday July 26th 2012!  I’m told the doctors expected the cancer too comeback at the 5 year mark, that never happened luckily!

Some people say I should celebrate the days in February.  I think those are days to forget.  I’d rather celebrate July 26th & every New Year.  I don’t know if that’s right, the days in February don’t seem as though they need to be remembered?

I fell asleep to “Metallica” the new album “Hardwired…………to self-destruct”, woke up to pee & listened to “Big Wreck” the album “Grace Street”

I exercised to “In Flames” the album “Colony”

 

I did 200 crunches yesterday & 200 today.  My abs really hurt, how on earth was I doing 1500 a day with no pain?

Kim’ stomach is fine.  She’s trying to figure out what it is that bothers her for a day or 2 a week.  She doesn’t get sick, she just has an annoying stomach every now & then.  She’s exercising a bit as well.  She went for a ½ hour run on Sunday, in the exercise room here on the treadmill.

I’m doing some of my exercises, & still stretching my sciatic nerve mostly.  I’m doing a fraction of my crunches & some of my leg lifts.  My daily goal for crunches each day won’t be 1500, it will be a little bit less when I reach it, and 1300 is what I’ll build up to.  I gotta say that doing my exercises feels more normal for me.  Back into my routine a bit, it feels much better!

A follow up to the 2006 release “10,000 Days” by Tool would be more than welcome.

I fell asleep to “In Flames” the new album “Battles”

More stretching today, no music.  I just do sets of 20 throughout the day.  Oddly enough, my foot tingles only when I stretch.  The other times I’m fine, until I try to do my exercise.  I’ll try to do something then my body chimes in “You can’t do that idiot that still hurts”!  I hate it when my body’s right!

Don’t feel as though you need to click on every link.

I was keeping it small this year.  Mitch, Rachel, Corey, Jolene, Hannah, James, Sherry, my parents, my grandparents, & of course Kim.  Saturday night we all had supper at Bobby’s Tavern.  After supper everyone but my parents & grandparents came back to our place.  We’re all getting old, I was in bed by 11:00pm.  Corey & Jolene brought me some Rebellion beer & a gift card for more beer when needed.  Little Hannah (3) brought me a fantastic painting with a big rainbow!  It’s on display on our shelves beside our front door.

Sunday morning we went to my parents to see my cousin from Saskatoon & her 5 month old baby.  Dad was making eggs benedict, so we made sure it didn’t go to waste.  Sunday & Monday, I was just tired.

Monday my parents took Kim & I out for lunch.  Kim & Dad took the day off.  We came home & tried not to make any sudden movements.  I think Kim won that one.  I came in here just to check my email, by the time I went back to the living room, Kim & Brewster were asleep on the couch.  If Brewster can get on Kim’ lap, he’s out cold!

I’m not the smartest individual when it comes to politics.  I’m pretty sure the mass shooting in a Mosque in Quebec are somehow related to Trumps ban on immigration of 7 mid-eastern countries.  Now he’s helping/causing terrorism in Canada.  Whatever terrorist group did this is saying “We don’t care what race or religion we kill.  As long as someone dies.”  Well I hope Trump is happy, the majority of us aren’t!

Dave Grohl listens to his first band “Scream” on Sonic Highways outtakes

I don’t think anyone likes listening to themselves.  Even your outgoing message on a phone for message manager.  Even on the few recordings I’ve been a part of, everybody hears their mistakes, not the good stuff and say “Oh, I should have done this instead of that”!

That’s A LOT OF HATRED!  In a weird way he divided everyone while bringing us together.  Most of us can agree Trump’s not the person for the job.  Can we get Michelle Obama to take over & have Ellen Degeneres as her running partner?

It’s 8:30 am, I’m not sure what will be playing on the “stereo” today?

I did listen to “Alter Bridge” while cleaning the kitchen after breakfast

 

Seems like the “in” thing at the moment is to trash on anything & everything related to 2016?

Well then everybody’s going to expect a lot from 2017…………….wait………………….who knows what’s happening this year?  I didn’t have a problem with 2016 other than the political debates on every TV channel in Canada.  We got to hear all of the garbage from the debates whether we wanted to or not, & we didn’t get to vote?  Russia did, why not us?

If you liked or hated 2016 well what’s done is done, might as well live in the moment.  You can’t change the past & you don’t know what the future holds?  Live in the NOW!!!  I’m living in the now & anticipating the future.  I don’t know about anybody else, but each day feels like WWIII is getting closer?

WHAT?  The music you listen to does not define who you are!  Otherwise I’d be on the RCMP or FBI watch list!  Imagine the heat I’d get if I was a gay, transgender, bisexual, coloured & listened to metal as well as being in a wheelchair & having an eye patch.  Talk about discrimination right there!

I deal with discrimination, but not nearly the amount that others do.  People see the eye patch & wheelchair & I get it, it’s not what they’re used to.  You can’t really judge people by taking a glance at someone.  ‘You can’t judge a book by its cover’.  I don’t look like a metal fan other than my T-Shirt.  I’m commonly found in shorts and a black T-Shirt with a band name most people don’t recognize.  Right there are 2 types of discrimination.  I give people some time to regroup & realize who I am, a global citizen, like everyone else.  Gay, bisexual, transgender, male, female, race, able, disabled, hobbies, etc.  When you get to the root of things, were all global citizens.  Why do we hate what’s different from “normal”?  Your normal is different from most others as well.  I like heavier music for the most part, does that mean I’m a bad person?  Why is it OK to watch people kill & injure others in mass shootings, but if you’re gay you’re labeled as a bad person in parts of the world?  Does that make sense to anyone?  I don’t get it?

 

Green Day’s new Trump trashing new video.

Right there, we’ve made up our minds about him.  I’m not sure if continually stooping to his level will do anything?  I’d like to see a change, but I’m pretty sure being a Canadian living in Canada, doesn’t mean I can change another countries political situation.

 

I’ll take “Hardwired……………….to Self-Destruct” & the odd song here & there.  I’m not a Metallica fan, but they have their place as metal God’s.

……and a sampling of these songs, NOT THE ALBUMS

The “S & M” album & one of their cover songs.

I guess I could make a playlist on my iPod, but I don’t like doing that.  I prefer a good full album.  I don’t like buying a song here and there.

 

Would you like to know which hard rock or metal band is playing?  This is for you if you answered “yes”.
