I fell asleep to “Corrosion of Conformity” the new album “No Cross No Crown”

 

4 day week total.  My muscles were very sore Thursday, I only did 3 of my 6 exercises & I was tinkering the numbers this.  Now I’m sick today, no exercise today.  I feel fine but my stomach completely disagrees.  All of these totals will be out of whack.  My exercising is now 50/50 of walking in the future & shedding around 25 pounds.  I developed terrible eating habits since I was doing so much therapy/exercise that I could eat ANYTHING & not gain weight.  I actually went down 2” in waist size.  I finished my therapy, & all of the weight went straight to my belly.  Everything else looks like I’m good.  My doctor didn’t even say anything about my weight.  My cancer clinic doctor will though.  Really need to do some cardio.

586 pushups, 400 crunches, 300 leg lifts, 135 triceps pushups, 120 back flexes, & 190 squats

That amount of exercise tires me out.  I need to do more if I’m ever going to “…walk again…”

I’m on anti-biotics now.  When I gave my urine sample, they found that I have a bladder infection.  I’m glad that’s all they found after testing my blood & urine, could have been much worse!

 

A TON of fans of whatever band think bands should change their name when a member leaves or is added.  This is my reason why they shouldn’t.

“Alice in Chains” had their singer die & now it’s basically guitarist Jerry Cantrell & friends.  “Stone Temple Pilots” just got a new singer after their original singer died a few years ago.  ¾ remain & singer Jeff Gutt just joined.  I don’t think Jeff Gutt & friends likely wouldn’t work.  “Foo Fighters” could have changed their name 6 times.  “Big Wreck” could have changed their name 3 times.  “Trivium” has released 9 studio albums & have had 7-9 different drummers.  “Finger Eleven” was known as “Rainbow Butt Monkeys” & recorded 1 album under that name.  They got a different drummer & changed their name to “Finger Eleven”, that’s fine, not many people knew who they were.  They don’t have an everyday drummer now.  They toured with a session drummer for the last album.

“Into Eternity” currently have one original member of 5 members.  The 4 other members have changed individually many times.  “Pearl Jam” took drummer Matt Cameron when “Soundgarden” broke up in ’97.  When “Soundgarden” came back he was doing double duty, drumming for both bands!  “Lamb of God” released their first S/T album as “Burn the Priest”.  They were banned from places & changed their name for their 2nd album to “Lamb of God”, I don’t recommend the “Burn the Priest” album to anyone.

So what should “Soundgarden” or “Linkin Park” do if they both get a different lead singer?  Nothing like starting from zero, “…where (nobody) knows your name…”?

  1. Alice in Chains

2013

  1. Stone Temple Pilots

2017

  1. Foo Fighters

2017

  1. Big Wreck

2017

I could go on & on, but you get my point.  Once you’re famous or somewhat famous, you wouldn’t want to start from scratch again in a band.  They have all been there & done that already, no need to do it again.  I wouldn’t, if I had too!

 

It’s coming, “Super Troopers 2”.  Trailer inside the link, LANGUAGE!!!!!!

I fell asleep to “Halestorm” the album “Into the Wild Life”

I exercised to “Earthside” the album “A Dream I Static”

 

600 pushups, 500 leg lifts, & 225 triceps pushups!  I’m not sure what I’ll do for exercise over the holidays?  I don’t want to lose any momentum but I also need a break.  January 2nd everything goes back to normal.  Both types of pushups 45 & 120, 100 crunches, 100 leg lifts, & 40 back flexes 5 days a week.  I need to do some cardio also, we’ll see how that works out.

Got up Wednesday, felt instantly sick to my stomach.  Did my exercises, checked my Facebook & email, had breakfast.  About ½ an hour later I threw up my breakfast.  Returned to the couch until I went to bed at 10:00 pm.  Thursday I slept in until 11:00 am & felt fine.  Did my exercises, had breakfast & got out of the shower a few minutes after 2:00 pm.

Playing baseball was my 2nd hobby but I won’t bore you with that stuff.  I played from the age of 4 until the end of the season when I was 17.  I guess I was playing baseball before I started doing anything else regularly.

When I was in grade 7 my baseball coach was thrown out of the game twice in Little League.  It was LITTLE LEAGUE!  So not worth it!  Our practices were at a high school, before & after each practice we’d all jog around the property twice.  I still had some baby fat on me until that baseball season.  When I say property, it doesn’t mean just the building, but the entire property.  Football field, baseball diamond, parking lot, EVERYTHING!

 

 

Star Wars: Episode VIII, The Last Jedi is now in theaters.  I’m going to the theater, but I’ll wait about a month.  It’s projected to make $425,000,000 this weekend.  I’m waiting until everyone has seen it 10 times, then I’ll go.

 

New “Walk off the Earth” video!

 

Wow, after all of that, I still don’t like Roy Moore!

http://www.cnn.com/2017/12/11/politics/kayla-moore-roy-rally-alabama-senate/index.html

 

When I hear a new Tool album I’ll believe it.  They do have many festivals coming up on their schedule though.

Drummer, Danny Carey, said the same thing at the end of 2016 about a new album in 2017.

Maynard James Keenan will be pulling double duty singing for A Perfect Circle & Tool at the same festival.

http://loudwire.com/tool-avenged-sevenfold-2018-northern-invasion-lineup/

 

Too far away for me with no passport.  I’m not that interested in seeing Jerry Cantrell & friends anyway.

http://loudwire.com/alice-in-chains-spring-2018-north-american-tour/

After the death of singer, Layne Staley, I sort of tuned out.

 

No Canadian dates for this tour

Deceased singer.

 

New singer.

 

What’s a millennial, sweeping stereotype for anyone born after 1984?  My brother is NOT a millennial.  My extended family are not millennials.  Everyone was raised by good parents, & we’re taught to work for their goals.

 

Don’t forget!!!!  Foo Fighters are the musical guests on Saturday Night Live!!  Set your DVR, PVR, VCR, Microwave, Oven, BETA MAX, alarm clock, cell phone, BBQ, etc.  Don’t miss it!!!!

 

We’ve been through this 4 times last year.  Give him 3 weeks to a month & he’ll have a blister again.

C.C. Sabathia as a Blue Jay?  No!  What happened to younger?  He’s left handed, but past his prime to be in the MLB.  I’d give him 2 years at $15M a year.

I fell asleep to “Nothing but Thieves” their self-titled debut album.  Their 2nd album “Broken Machine” is out in September!

I exercised to “Alice in Chains” the album “Facelift”.  Alice in Chains were labeled as a metal group that gained success with the grunge movement.  If the media labeled them as metal, Soundgarden could easily been thrown into that mix.

Sunday ended with us having supper in Corey & Jolene’s back yard.  We were guinea pigs for the new smoker, we’re alive, the meat was tasty & safe!

I really had to check my pride at the door at WRC.  I’d have a bath once a week, every patient had a schedule for a bath once a week.  Complete strangers saw me naked, covered me up once I was on the gurney, take me to the bath, lower me into the bath & wash me or more often Kim would wash me.  It was awkward at first for me but I got over that pretty fast.

When I started this blog & acted like Trump or worse I thought I truly deserved something fantastic.  I beat a life threatening disease, & everyone was calling me a “Hero”.  I bought in to everybody’s hype & forgot how to remain humble.  What should I have done instead?  Remain humble, not let the hype get to me, & just be thankful to be alive, which is good enough for me!  Unfortunately I realized that later than I should have.  When I mess something up, I truly am my own worst enemy.

What made me think of entitlement?  There was a guy who was doing physiotherapy at the same time as I was with my occupational therapist.  He flipped out on the physiotherapist, started swearing at her, pointed to me and yelled “I WANT TO BE DOING WHAT HE’S DOING!” The next day when I had physiotherapy I apologized to my physiotherapist, telling her “Sorry you had to deal with that garbage yesterday”.  She replied “It comes with the territory”.  I told her “It shouldn’t though”.

I’ll admit that I had a rough day also.  I didn’t yell or swear at anyone.  I just said “No, not today!  I’m tired & I don’t feel like doing anything!”  I went for a short walk with my walker, Kim, & my physiotherapist.  I apologized the next day for my behavior.  My therapist said “That’s OK.  Everyone has a rough day once in a while”.  However you want to look at it, it’s not right!  What I should have said initially is “Sorry, I’m tired & I need a day off from therapy today.  Is it OK if I take today off?”

Guess who was sitting next to me in our (mom, dad, & I) Saskatchewan Roughrider season ticket seats?  The guy who flipped out that one day in therapy.  I don’t like what he did but, forgive & forget I guess, it’s done now.

 

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

 

The countdown for the new Royal Blood album is out Thursday @ midnight eastern time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2 days

 

They’re both very HEAVY metal musicians, if this happens it could go either way for me.

http://loudwire.com/opeth-mikael-akerfeldt-may-start-project-with-devin-townsend/

 

So it’s Monday in the late morning & I just found out The Watchmen are co-headlining the Queen City Exhibition!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  WOOT WOOT

 

Finally “Despicable Me 3” in theaters June 30th.  I’ve been waiting for the release date to be announced!

 

I was emptying the dishwasher after my exercise & breakfast.  Then realized it has been a while since I’ve listened to this album……………..

 

So many people like to go on youtube or any type of social media & just drop a HUGE pile of crap on how much they dislike a movie, album, song, etc.  I’m guilty of doing that also.  OK, could you have done anything even remotely close to that?  Maybe, maybe not?  Until you can & have you might as well keep quiet.  When you do will your feelings be hurt if 2 out of 3 people just demolish your “art” on social media?  If you don’t like it, why are you even involved with anything to do with it?  Leave it alone & walk away or voice your opinion your own www.youtube.com channel dedicated to finding flaws in everything!  Most of us are old enough to make up our own mind!

 

I record & watch Jimmy Fallon & Conan the day after the late night showing.  I’m currently watching Jimmy Fallon.  Everybody rush out & get some “Tonight Dough” Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, 100% of the proceeds go to child charity.  You can eat ice cream while helping out & say “I had to do it for the kids!”  Just like miracle treat day at Dairy Queen!

Oddly enough, I was listening to this “Fleetwood Mac” album on Monday!

 

I think “Queens of the Stone Age” will be releasing their album soon?  Their Facebook page is active lately?  It will be their follow up to “…Like Clockwork” & 7th studio album!

 

Ozzfest meets Knotfest.  Probably too much metal for me?

http://loudwire.com/ozzfest-meets-knotfest-return-2017/

I have no problem with Ozzy Osbourne, Slipknot are OK I just prefer Slipknot Light, Stone Sour!

 

Just to cool not to share!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

The majority of metal fans are great people, just like every other community.  There’s a bad apple in every community.  Metal fans tend to get a “bad reputation.”

It’s gay pride week so if you’re an #LGBTQ member in or out of the closet, I fully support you as long as you’re a kind person.  If someone picks on you or makes fun of you because of your sexuality, I hope you have the strength to brush it off.  There are many idiots out there, but there’s also many people like me who fully support you!  Please don’t live a lie about your sexuality “Be Yourself” & own it.

I fell asleep to “U2” the album “Zooropa”

I got down to stretch for a bit to “Alter Bridge” the album “The Last Hero”

 

I tried doing a very light workout & just started coughing uncontrollably.  Started with crunches, tried to do 50 & was coughing by the time I reached 20 & figured I should stop, this was on Monday.  I guess no exercise until this cold is gone.  At least with the snow out there from last night I can justify having hot water with lemon & honey.

Tuesday & I’m still quite sick aka another wasted day in my eyes.  This cold has latched on & sunk it’s nails into me.  Kim got me some cold medication after talking with the pharmacist about what I could take without affecting my regular meds I take.  It’s weird to watch a baseball game sipping on hot water with lemon & honey mixed in.  Shouldn’t it be a hot dog & a beer?

I, of course, watched the baseball game last night & the Jays are actually winning here & there.  Their record isn’t pretty, but it’s coming around.  I’d never consider them a playoff contender despite more than 140 games left in the season. They are currently 6W-14L, not good!

Not much new here.  Wednesday morning & this cold will not let up.  Fell asleep coughing & woke up coughing.  My fever is gone though so I shouldn’t be sweating all day!

 

 

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 saw a photo saying Big Wreck are in the studio.  WOW fast turnaround!!!!!!!!!

 

Pentatonix shared it.  Their new video of “Can’t help falling in love”

 

Here it comes I guess, another huge movie from Marvel!

Between “Royal Blood” & “Paramore”, I’m not sure which album I’m anticipating the most after hearing the first single from each.

 

Hard to believe “Black Sabbath” released one of my favourite Black Sabbath albums the year I was born?

http://loudwire.com/black-sabbath-heaven-and-hell-album-anniversary/

 

This is why I watch baseball.  In the past 3 or 4 days, I’ve seen many things I’ve never seen before.  Neither have the retired baseball players broadcasting the game!

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.

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?

http://www.ticketmaster.com/venueartist/189126/707500?c=LNSM__LasVegas_APerfectCircle_fb_ss_040517

 

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”!

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!!!!!!

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

I like kids coming over.  Kim loves it as well!  I like seeing any of our friend’s kids!  Kids really don’t care what anyone thinks.  I’m good with babysitting, then the parents get to take them home after we’ve taught them what not to do.  If I get confronted by someone who blames me for teaching their kid something I’ll reply “Oh, it wasn’t me!  What on earth are the Grandparents teaching this poor innocent child?”  I’m pretty sure I’d be a very immature father if I had my own child though.  The kid would likely grow up a little wonky?  This is my way of saying “You’re welcome”.  This could be one of my reasons for not having kids?  Be sure to watch the entire thing!

 

Well, no In Flames date in Saskatoon this time.  The closest to Saskatchewan they’re coming is Calgary & Edmonton.  Save my money I guess.

I fell asleep to “Diemonds” the third album “Never Wanna Die”, then “The Damned Things”

I exercised/stretched to “Big Wreck” the album “In loving memory of”

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

Remember that old mantra we learned as kids “Sticks & stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.”  Totally wrong!  A broken bone will heal in time, when you speak to someone you have to pay attention as to what you’re saying to someone new, or what might really offend a family member or friend.  “The pen is mightier than the sword!”  Still not true but much closer to reality.  A person might take words poorly, intended or not intended.  If it just comes out by mistake, you’re hooped, better start apologizing ASAP.  Hopefully the individual can let go of what was said.  Fortunately, I have great friends & family, who have forgiven me for things I said in 2011 & 2012.
