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

Music throughout the weekend.  “1970s Rock Compilation”, “In Flames”, “Lamb of God”, & “Dead Sara”

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

 

Well Friday I didn’t feel like watching the baseball game at all.  Instead Kim & I watched a movie on Netflix.  We don’t watch horror movies much at all.  The movie “Get Out” was really good though!

I stayed up late to watch 3 episodes of “That 70s Show” on Netflix.

Saturday Kim got up & made a large delicious breakfast for us.  Bacon, oatmeal, & fruit.  Then I buckled in to watch the Blue Jays lose again.  This is a rebuilding year for the team.  The President & General Manager are doing a rebuild without stating what they’re doing.

It’s a team full of young players.  I have no expectations this year or next year really.

Woke up early today 5:20 am.  Went to visit a different cousin from Winnipeg at my parents’ place.  Movie night, they hadn’t seen “Aquaman” so we watched that on dad’s big HD projection screen in the basement.

Binge watched the last 3 episodes of the first season of “Big Little Lies” on Crave.  2nd season is starting today

Now it’s time to see if the Jays can score a run today, or find another way to lose a game?

…And I liked one song from the debut “Velvet Revolver” debut.

NOEL GALLAGHER’S HIGH FLYING BIRDS

They’re a rock band, just not a heavy rock band.  If you remember “Oasis” from the 1990s, you probably remember the name Noel Gallagher.  He was the guitar player in “Oasis”, his brother Liam was the singer.  Constantly bickering in public at each other during the “Oasis” days when they were one of the biggest bands in the world.

Now they don’t have each other’s phone number from what I’ve read.

They both have their own separate bands.  I checked out Liam Gallagher’s band & it just wasn’t for me.  Noel Gallagher’s very opinionated & really doesn’t care what anyone else thinks.  He’s right & everyone else is wrong.  I really like his music though.  He’s also the singer in his band.  I have 2 of his albums, there’s also an EP & another album on iTunes that was released before the 2nd & 3rd album.

EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL/JANELLE MONAE

No such thing as a stupid question!  Feel free to ask me on Facebook or the website!

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

5 day exercise total; 400 pushups, 600 leg lifts, 450 crunches, 200 tricep lifts, 450 squats, 300 back flexes.

I fell asleep to “Soundgarden” the album “Badmotorfinger”

I exercised to “Nothing But Thieves” their first self – titled release

 

Right out of the gate, I have not been in a bad mood since early 2012.  My depression crept up on me & exploded last week.  My stubbornness is genetic, but that’s no excuse for it.  My depression showed me last week that, as hard as I try, I can’t control it.  So as of this post I have yet to hear anything from a psychologist or therapist.  Psychiatrists give you pills.

I’ve seen a psychiatrist & I’m on 2 anti-depressants in the morning & 2 anti-psychotics over night.  The pills are not enough though.  I need to speak with a professional who’s not a psychiatrist.

Tuesdays & Thursdays are the days of the week I despise.  Those days I find very difficult exercise wise.  Each of those days are 200 pushups & 100 tricep lifts.  I feel good after I get those exercises done.  Before I do them you probably would be better off not talking to me.  That’s why I do them ASAP after I wake up.

What do I do after my exercise each day?  My exercises take me about 1 ½ hours each day, then I watch the late night talk shows, Stephen Colbert & Jimmy Fallon.  Then a sports talk radio show on TV, maybe part of a movie, or just listen to music & stretch out on the couch.  If there’s something I can do around the house.  That always takes priority after my blog is posted.

Somewhere in there I have a small lunch of fish or a lettuce wrap with Dijon mustard, a slice of cheese & turkey deli meat.  Breakfast is always a hardboiled egg, a ½ glass of veggie juice, & a piece of fruit.  There’s always a shower in there too!  0% yogurt with blue berries for a snack or rice crackers & hummus.

When Kim comes home we watch “The Ellen Degeneres Show” & then I get to practice walking with my walker usually.  We’re still trying to make that a part of our routine.  I don’t usually want to do it, but I know I need to!  “Yay, more exercise” – said no one ever!

Their songs don’t suck!  They’re just very similar.  I still have “Feed the Machine” on my list to purchase!

Lars Ulrich did something good for a change!  I’m sure he’ll contradict himself, as usual, in a week or two.  ‘Streaming music is hurting the music industry’!  One week later ‘I have 9 iPods in my house, full of music from Spotify’!  I like Metallica.  Lars has always bugged me, even before the “Napster” ordeal, which he was right about.

I watched “Aquaman” on Thursday & it’s AMAZING!  I should have seen it in theaters.  I rarely see a movie in theaters now, but I should!

 

JANELLE MONAE

I saw her performance on the Grammy Awards, & thought “WOW!  A song that sounds heavily inspired by Prince!”  I got the album later that week.  I know nothing about her other than the album “Dirty Computer” is really good!  She has other albums out, 2 or 3 I’m not sure.  There’s not a song on this album that’s not labeled as explicit, so beware there is LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

CANADIAN RED CROSS/METAL’S BIG 4

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

I fell asleep to “Smashing Pumpkins” the album “SHINY & OH SO BRIGHT VOL. 1 / LP: NO PAST.  NO FUTURE. NO SUN”

I exercised to “Muse” the album “Simulation Theory”

 

Please donate to the Canadian Red Cross for my birthday on January 30th?  Still 7 weeks left to donate.  I don’t even know whose blood is in me, however, it did save my life.  The goal is $1000, just started & were at $60.  I used to donate blood, but now I can’t.  Donate money, blood, refreshments after a blood donation, or any way you can, please?

https://www.facebook.com/donate/355724371686873/10155740293661087/

 

 

Kim told me on the weekend not to make any plans, so I didn’t.  She comes home from work yesterday & tells me “We’re going here on this day & here after that, then these people are coming here & later on these people are coming here.”  She’s hilarious, but it’s all marked down & I’m up for it.  This is why I let her make the plans or include her in an email or Facebook message.

She’s working from home today.  She’s been feeling like there’s a cold coming on since Sunday.

Every day I think to myself “I’ll take it easy on myself”.  Then I go all out to achieve the amount I have set out for myself.  I do the full amount & realize that “OH SNAP, I’ll be sore tomorrow”!  I didn’t pace myself in to this year, I just went all out beginning January 2nd, that was dumb on my part.  Not too painful to stop, just enough to tell my body “HEY, IDIOT, PACE YOURSELF!”

No hot water Monday.  1 of the 2 water heaters died aka I festered in my filthy sweat all day.  Tuesday it was replaced aka then I smelled & felt better!  On Tuesday, I did crash my head on the inside top of the fridge.  I need to stand up for something on the top shelf of the fridge, 2nd shelf of the upper cupboards, or the 2nd shelf of the pantry.

 

I guess I’d better get my sorry butt to the movies.  I missed “Bohemian Rhapsody” in the theaters & “Aquaman” could be missed in theaters also!

 

We did watch “Bird Box” on Netflix.  I highly recommend it.  It’s a thriller, not a horror movie.

 

Hear the late Chester Bennington on Lamb of God guitarist, Mark Morton’s, solo album.

 

Here’s part of the reason I have issues with country music.  The main reason is, it’s pop music with a thick Southern accent.  I really have issues with any Southern accent.  Kim was listening to the audiobook for “The Help” & then the movie, I couldn’t handle the southern accent, but I made it through the movie.

Also, someone please explain to me how does Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum & many more fit into the country music genres?  How different is their music to Taylor Swift’s pop now or Taylor Swift’s country & now pop?

I know I’ll get some backlash on this since I listen to metal & rock.  I’ll take some older style country music.  Like the Walmart yodeling kid.  At least he’s doing actual country music instead of generic pop music with a twang.

Here’s a country music fan on the state of country music.

 

 

THE BIG 4 OF METAL

Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, & Anthrax.  I like all 4 bands, Slayer in small doses though.  They’re all great & I think out of the 4 Metallica might be the most remembered when they retire.  Slayer are on their final tour.

My question is, are Metallica a metal band, a rock band or am I jaded?  In Regina our rock station only plays the odd Metallica song, but nothing from the other bands in the big 4.  Is it because they’re generic enough to play on the radio or because they’re a house hold name?  I can guarantee you’ll never hear the other 3 bands on the radio in Regina, maybe Anthrax but not likely.  Another question, why wasn’t it the big 5?  Pantera was a power house, they should have been included!

I’ve heard many songs from Metallica on the radio though, I like Metallica I’m not trying to dump on them.

Now, with Slayer retiring, who will take their place in the big 4?  I’ve heard other people mention Lamb of God, which would be great for me, but not for other fans of metal.

Don’t worry, these are the radio friendly rock songs by Metallica.

 

So, would you classify these songs as metal or rock?  These are some of the Metallica songs that are played on the radio.  I’d put their first 5 albums & the recent album as metal, pretend St. Anger was never made & call the other albums rock albums.  How would you break them down?

I fell asleep to “Coheed & Cambria” the album “No World for Tomorrow”

I exercised to “Muse” the album “Simulation Theory”

 

I love the fact that everyone’s entitled to a bad day……………..unless you’re me.  “Don’t let anyone else affect your mood”.  Why do I have to be held to this GIGANTIC pain in the butt standard, & nobody else has too?  That’s a TON of messed up pressure, especially when I actually care about others.  I guess I go about it the wrong way.

“I will be albatross…” for as long as you need.  I’ve earned it!  Might as well let me be your human punching bag!

I have the same New Year resolution as I do every year.  Do more exercise, get closer to walking on my own, be more independent, & just get better at everything.  Realistically this year, I need to do a TON more of practicing walking.

Goodbye 2018, you sucked.  Hello 2019, can you be better please?

Well, “Here I go again”

In no way do I want to belittle what people did for me on December 31st.  Ice cream cake & a banner saying “Congratulations on 10 years cancer free”.  That was great after one of my worst days (mentally) of the year.  Thank you to Mom, Dad, Mitch, Rachel, Danielle, Megan, Kim, Karen, & Ray. I hope you had fun!  I wanted to hibernate for the next 3 years.  Sorry for the negative attitude, I just wanted to keep it really low key & drink my problems away!  I didn’t, I was far too sober.  Remember that 10 years ago on Tuesday, February 5th, 2008 I was diagnosed with brain cancer.

For me 2018 was a lot like high school, “When does this stop?  Is there any way I can get out of here sooner?”  I felt awkward & out of place for most of it.  2019 & nothing has really changed.  I’m in a wheelchair & still have an iPatch.  Thanks for the celebration.  I really didn’t want it to be about me at all.  It was a New Year for everyone.

WOW, one day of exercise, when you last did exercise on December 20th, really makes you tired & sweaty.

Here’s what my cancer clinic doctor wrote about me.  The report is actually 7 pages long but this is a small paragraph to sum up what it says.

“A 28-year-old man presented to the emergency room with a severe headache of one day’s duration. A computerized tomography scan showed a hemorrhagic tumor measuring 3.9 x 4.4 cm in the left cerebellar hemisphere. The resection specimen revealed medulloblastoma. He had two episodes of rebleeding and multiple postoperative issues preventing the use of prone craniospinal radiotherapy. We designed a supine technique for this tall man, which was not complicated to set up. The rapid safe implementation of this technique allowed us to avoid further rebleeding and successfully treat the residual tumor. This technique is the described technique in this case report and is compared to other techniques. At 7.5 years after surgery, he is alive without cancer and with only a mild residual deficit. This case is unusual since the majority of patients with the diagnosis of hemorrhagic medulloblastoma died.”

I woke up too early on New Year’s Eve day.  Like 5:07 or 6:07 am.  After flopping around in bed until 8-8:30 am, I admitted defeat.  Had breakfast & hit the couch.  I went to bed around 10:00 pm.  On occasion I sleep for a minimal amount of time.  Usually I flop around in bed for roughly 2 hours before I fall asleep.  I was tired & fell asleep too fast.

I just saw this which makes me feel less worried about this streaming music non-sense, to a point.  Worse comes to worse, google play, here I come.  Don’t screw this up Apple or you’ll fit in the category of Trump supporters.  They’ve all but taken away my faith in humanity.

https://metro.co.uk/2018/04/12/apple-reveals-truth-behind-claims-planning-kill-itunes-music-downloads-7462537/

Jimmy Iovine was also the one that said it was shutting down.

There’s obviously a demand, keep the supply until there is no demand.  If they do eliminate the option to purchase music, I’m not sure of what I’ll do?

On Friday I’ll tell you about my holidays & some year-end exercise totals & top 10 albums of the year for me.

 

Aquaman role inspired by Tool, Metallica, & Black Sabbath according to Jason Momoa

GRETA VAN FLEET

2nd release from them “Anthem of the Peaceful Army” after the 8 song release (two 4 song EPs sold as one 8 song album) “From the Fires”.  Still all I hear from other music blogs is “THEY SOUND TOO MUCH LIKE LED ZEPPELIN!!!!!!”  Is that really the only thing anyone takes away after listening to their album?  If so, thank you, I know what you think.  Please stop whining about them & stop listening to them if you hate it so much!

I will say this 2nd release from them pales in comparison to their earlier release.  It does have some cool stuff on it though.  One song at the bottom to compare the 2 albums.

 

Anthem of the Peaceful Army

 

2017    FROM THE FIRES

It may be that I just prefer up tempo songs?  The first album had zero slow songs.  This second album has a small handful of them.

 

Look at them just releasing a steady diet of music.  Quick turn-a-round!!!!!!!!!!!

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!

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”

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

Music throughout the weekend.

“Dead Sara”, “Queens of the Stone Age”, “Foo Fighters”, “Paramore”

 

Friday evening ended with us renting “I Feel Pretty” from iTunes.  Then I watched the Toronto Blue Jays game, they won, against the 2nd worse team in all of baseball, despite trying to lose the game.  How do they blow a 7-2 game and go into extra innings with the game tied at 7-7?  Trade deadline is July 31st.  I hope they ‘drain the swamp’!

We went for a drive for Kim to find some places to take photographs.  She forgot her tri-pod & we left too late.  Very late supper Saturday night, like 10:00 pm late.

Very lazy Sunday.  Just got back from a drive for Kim to take a few more photographs for her class aka she had homework to do.

 

LIVE

I own 8 albums, 7 on CD.  2 albums in total of the 8 albums I own do not show up on iTunes at all?  I’d like to focus on their masterpiece & 2nd album “Throwing Copper”

This is what I have for albums by “Live” in order of release beginning in 1991 with “Mental Jewelry”, 1994 “Throwing Copper”, 1997 “Secret Samadhi”, 1999 “The Distance to Here”, 2001 “V”, 2003 “Birds of Prey”, 2006 “Songs from Black Mountain”, & 2014 “The Turn”.  I only listen to the first 5 & the last album featuring a different singer.  Here’s the highlights for me from “Throwing Copper”….

 

The music industry is tanking so much that ‘In Flames’ have released a brand of Gin & now a truck!

 

Was it really so popular that we need a reboot?  I watched a few (4?) episodes as a teen but I was never a devoted fan.

https://www.rollingstone.com/tv/tv-news/buffy-the-vampire-slayer-tv-reboot-in-the-works-702313/

 

I might have to check out this album.  I never, ever thought ‘System of a Down’ were going to release another album & I don’t think they will.

http://loudwire.com/scars-on-broadways-dictator-has-shades-of-system-of-a-down/

 

‘Into Eternity’ new album to be released on August 3rd on www.Bandcamp.com for digital copy or I believe there is a link to order a physical copy?

 

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Aquaman trailer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Sweet!!!!!  In theaters November 21st

I’m a fan of the many ‘Robin Hood’ movies.  ‘Prince of Thieves’, the Disney Cartoon, & ‘Men in Tights’.  The Russel Crowe movie didn’t do much for me.

 

I guess the song “Lateralus” by Tool just happened originally to match the Fibonacci sequence by chance.

I’LL REACH MY NORMAL EXERCISE NUMBERS VERY SOON!

I fell asleep to “Paul McCartney & Wings” the album of “Greatest Hits”

I exercised to “90s Alternative Playlist” on Apple Music.

Facebook is getting very slow for pop culture news, that I’m interested in sharing with you & for myself at the moment. Share some news for me please?

Yes, my muscles have been a bit sore over the weekend, I did reach my numbers in 3 exercises today! Tomorrow, I’ll do some of the 4th exercise & see how it feels?

I don’t put anything on the account, it’s a “free” preview for what I’ll purchase on iTunes. If you want to use it like I do, 2 computers are vital. One computer here has Apple Music & the other has iTunes. When we signed up for Apple Music it doubled all of the iTunes files. Once we separated the 2 accounts it was fine. So, I use it, but I don’t use it for “free” music. It, more like satellite radio but cheaper & WAY better! Apple won’t take the iTunes purchase files, I hope? If we stop paying the subscription for Apple Music, it’s all gone.

I don’t know if I’ve shared this on here yet? If I have, sorry? Feel free to skip past this if you like.

Movie ratings on iTunes are absolutely ridiculous to me, as are most ratings or reviews. I’ve rented and purchased 2 separate movies on iTunes. Both movies were given -22% & -27% reviews & I liked them both. Batman vs. Superman -27% & The Boss -22%. I busted a gut watching The Boss which we rented. I bought Batman vs. Superman & have watched the Ultimate Edition at least 5 times at home & once in the theater.

Batman vs. Superman will have quite few spinoffs that have been confirmed by trailers at comicon. I’m extremely anxious for them. I’ve heard some bad things about “Suicide Squad” though. I will champion Batman vs. Superman as 1 of my favourite comic book movies! But that’s me, not anyone else. I’ve heard rumour Ben Affleck will appear as Batman for 5 or 6 movies? Just a rumour though? Here are the upcoming spinoffs.

You’re gonna have DC vs. Marvel eventually & I’m in for both franchises!

I got 87% see what you can get! Name that band on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine!

I still wonder “How many of his hits occurred while on performance enhancing drugs?” He lied, got caught for a 2nd time, was suspended for a year, & continued to lie throughout his suspension. A-RoId will not be anywhere close to the Hall of Fame despite his impressive numbers!
