Who gets to take an afternoon off to be at a baseball game at 4:00 pm eastern time in N.Y.? It baffles me that they have a decent crowd for games at that time?

So I was watching “The Ellen Degeneres Show” while she interviewed Hillary Clinton. They’re both tired of the campaign, who isn’t? At least when it’s all said & done they get to vote. As Canadians we just get to watch the 3 ring circus called Donald Trump until, hopefully November. If he gets elected I’ll be EXTREMELY worried! Face it, nobody gives a hoot about Canada, we’re pretty much known as that cold country above the USA. I don’t really follow politics at all, & I don’t vote. I’m not telling you who to vote for, I’m saying I’d vote for Hillary Clinton ASAP! If Trump is elected, I’ll suggest to Justin Trudeau that Canada should build a wall at our southern border & make the USA pay for it? Remember Trump, you’re “…really rich…”

I do like “Uno” which is ranked among the worst albums. Music is VERY subjective. To each their own!

Pretty good despite the lack of a 2nd guitar!

At midnight eastern time tonight the new “Tegan and Sara” album “Boyfriend” will be available for download on iTunes.

Let’s see what the kid thinks of “Dust”

For what it’s worth I prefer “Cauterize” over “Dust” both are really good though, if you’re into this type of music.

Well, look at that another article, Q & A, with Mark Tremonti?? Who’d have thought.

Not cool at all!

How did we spend our weekend? Friday night we stayed home & did nothing but unwind from the week & watch too much TV. Saturday was our 11th anniversary. We went over to our friends place, Corey & Jolene & our “niece” Hannah, to hang out in the back yard, watch Brewster try to take on Dug (who’s roughly 6 times Brewster’s size), BBQ, shoot the breeze, take down some Rebellion beer, & cap off the evening with a showing of Disney’s “Tangled” before Hannah went to have her bath. We came home & watched/bought “Ellen Degeneres’ stand up HBO special The Beginning”.

Now it’s Mother’s Day. I hope you took the opportunity to “Love your Mother”

I just like the song below & it has the word “Mother” in it.

Nothing big for Mother’s Day. Mitch, Rachel, Kim & I took my parents out for appetizers. That’s what Mom wanted to do this year.

Preorder Chevelle’s “The North Corridor” on Friday, May 13th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let me explain this first. I’m not, nor was I ever a great singer, I was good enough. I can’t teach anyone how to sing. Just go out & do it. Repetition might just work?

Yeah, I mean I think the best way to learn how to be a better singer is to just go out there and do it live every night. I think that’s what’s been the best for me. You know vocal lessons are one thing, but actually applying it onstage is the big thing.” – Mark Tremonti

Ian Thornley of Big Wreck never intended to be the singer for Big Wreck. The 4 guys dropped out of The Berkley School of Music to form Big Wreck the other members sort of voted for him to be the singer.

I never really got into “Hole”. Not because I was a Nirvana fan & then a Foo Fighters fan. Hole just wasn’t for me.

EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL, PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE & BLUNT

I fell asleep to “Tremonti” again the album “Dust”

I exercised to ”Better Than Ezra” the albums “Deluxe” & “Friction Baby”, the only 2 I have, on shuffle

Exercise total for the week; 90 squats, 80 pushups, 140 leg lifts, & 6000 crunches. Yes I’m tired. I’ve been tired since Wednesday. I do have tunnel vision when it comes to a job or something else I have to do.

I’m really good at being passive aggressive & blunt. Not usually qualities anybody wants. There’s no point in wasting my time or energy being these 2 things. It’s never made me feel better about any situation & whoever is on the receiving end of this probably doesn’t either. I never intended to hurt anyone in the past, it just came out. Why? I don’t know?

That was a few year ago, let’s move on & not dwell on the past. It happened & it can’t be changed or “erased”. All of this being said, I think I’m the only one dwelling on this? I can be “my own worst enemy”. Remembering my mistakes is how I learn. That’s not who I was before though?

LIVING CANCER FREE

I fell asleep to “Puscifer” the album “Money Shot” after 3 or 4 attempts at other albums including “Prince” the album “Purple Rain” & “Pantera” the album “Vulgar Display of Power”

EXPLICIT LANGUAGE IN THE SONG BELOW!!! Prince never allowed any audio in his youtube videos. Here’s Foo Fighters covering “Darling Nikki” as a B-Side for single from “The Colour & The Shape” released in 1997.

I exercised to “Dream Theater” the first 3 songs on the album “The Astonishing”

Followed by “Lynyrd Skynyrd” a double album “The Essential” on shuffle

So now I’m living cancer free which is awesome! Those 4 & ½ years look smaller & smaller as time progress’. Can’t remember them nor do I really want to. Now I pay far more attention to my health. I eat much better than I did before. Sure I splurge like most people about 2 or 3 times a month or on the odd occasion we go out, which isn’t very often. The rest of the time I drink a mixture of fruit & vegetables I toss in a blender & have that for breakfast usually other than once a month that we go out for brunch. Lunch is usually a chicken wrap with a bit of grated cheese & Frank’s Red Hot. Supper is a wild card, usually chicken with Quinoa & wild rice in some form with some type of vegetables or a salad from Pita Pit or something along those lines. I eat less sugar filled stuff than I did before. Even my snacks are grapes, carrots or rice/pita crackers & hummus. 2 or 3 liters of water or a glass of cranberry juice to change it up a bit. If we go out, it depends on my mood, a salad or the tastiest thing on the menu. I exercise Monday-Friday for a little over an hour & I think we’ll be walking Saturdays & Sundays in our parkade with my walker & Kim holds me to make sure I don’t fall! I wish you all could meet her, she’s beyond AWESOME!

There’s no manual for surviving, surviving stage 4 brain cancer. I was told to exercise, especially my core muscles. So I spend roughly 1 ½ hours every morning exercising. My abdominal muscles are incredible, unfortunately they’re covered by a layer of fat. My mom suggested I try doing some squats! I’ve added that into my exercises. I have many exercises I can do here at home on the floor & stairs, walking & using the exercise bike in the condo’s “gym” aka a exercise bike & a treadmill.

THIS WEEK FELT LIKE A MONTH TO ME!!

The most anticipated regular season baseball 4 game series between the Blue Jays & Yankees in New York was rained out last night. I was looking forward to planting my butt on the couch to watch the first of 4 games. It’s been postponed until tonight, then a double header on Saturday. We’ll see if it happens tonight, the forecast in New York doesn’t look good as the play by play announcers said.

Kim’s been sick, she’s been home Wednesday, Thursday & today. Everywhere I look there’s phlegm, phlegm, phlegm, phlegm, phlegm, etc. I think our tissue box is near empty. When either one of us goes down, we both do. I went down for 4.5 years & took Kim with me. When she’s sick, I have to step up my game!

We sat on the couch to binge watch Scandal on Netflix. We started it on Monday & we’re about half way through the 2nd season. Ellen Degeneres was right on the money with that show, not because Portia is on it later on, but because it’s so good! We’re watching it some more today.

Kim’s getting better. I guess we’ll see if she’s up for celebrating a friend’s birthday tomorrow?

Give the site a moment to load all of the links. It takes a bit for my computer & it crashes on Kim’s cell.

Why is iTunes illegal in the U.K.? They made it illegal because of the burning software? We’ve always been able to trade vinyl, 8 tracks, cassettes, & CDs. We we’re also allowed to make mix tapes & mix CDs? Now that’s illegal? So Apple Music, “free” music that you basically rent, can flourish? Once you pay $5.99 for digital music, that you own, now you can’t share it or burn a copy legally in the U.K.? That’s just weird? I really don’t care how you get your music. If it’s through a streaming site, I don’t get it? You pay $9.99 a month for “free” music, if you want to hear a song you downloaded today on Apple Music, in 20 years you may have to continue paying $9.99 a month to hear it in 2035. All of that time you’ve paid $2397.60 to hear the same song from 20 years ago?

Should a contractor do the same? “I built that house 20 years ago. They should pay me monthly until it falls to the ground”. Would you buy the house under that law? I personally wouldn’t. I tend to think Apple should distribute the money made through iTunes & the purchase of iPods needs to be re-evaluated & distributed fairly. They got the idea right, just the disbursement of money is screwed up. We’ve all been able to own our music, but now that’s illegal in the UK?

10 best thrash bands of all time. Another metal sub-genres I don’t acknowledge. It’s metal! You either like it or not. End of story!

Is Trivium “thrash” or not?……………wait……………….I don’t care.

So I wake up this morning screaming. I was dreaming. In my dream there was a rat coming at me & Brewster was with me. I was walking & Brewster was on his leash with me. I tried to kick the rat in my dream. I woke up & had kicked my wheelchair & woke up at 7:30 screaming in pain. Brewster was on me instantly to see if I was OK. He’s such a good dog. I fell back to sleep for a few minutes, then woke up for good at 8:00. I don’t have kids, but I don’t really sleep in. On the weekends I’m usually awake by 9:30 during the week I get up either when Kim leaves for work or I wake when she’s showering. Brewster is usually the last 1 in bed!

The Toronto Blue Jays scored half the points the Saskatchewan Roughriders did Saturday night. Blue Jays won their game 15-3 Riders lost 34-31. After 8 games the Roughriders have yet to win 0W-8L. Blue Jays will, at the very least, play a wild card game to get into the playoffs. Riders playoff hope? No, that’s a pipe dream.

Kim did it, we watched “Red Dragon”, the prequel to “Silence of the Lambs”. The movies aren’t as freaky as they were 12 or 13 years ago when I was alone house sitting for my grandparents. Big empty house after watching those movies, then going to bed? I ran up the stairs I was so scarred I’d see Anthony Hopkins behind me, trying to eat me!

20 years ago “Rancid” released “…And Out Come The Wolves”

Foo Fighters retaliate against Kansas City Baptist Church picketers with Rick Astley’s ’80s hit “Never Gonna Give You Up”!

http://loudwire.com/foo-fighters-rick-roll-westboro-baptist-church-kansas-city/ because of this tour promo video in 2011. Maybe the picketers should protest outside any building with a public shower, YMCA/YWCA, etc.? Oh, snap the “C” stands for Christians!

Pink Floyd announces they’re done.

Songs I like, “Odds” 4 CDs.

BASEBALL ALL-STAR GAME

Why does the All-Star game determine anything? The winner, American league or National league, gets home field advantage in the World Series in October? Why not have it be whichever of the 2 teams, in the World Series, with the better W-L record gets 4/7 games of the World Series in their ball park. Aren’t all-star games supposed to be fun, light hearted, & mostly for the fans? I didn’t watch the game or Monday’s home run derby. I love baseball, but I only follow the Blue Jays. I watch as many of the 162 games, they play each year, as possible. If I’m doing something else, I record Blue Jays in :30. Not as much fun for me as watching the entire game.

Lots of people find it boring which is fine, I get that. It’s as much if not more of a mental game. You have to be thinking of where you need to be for every scenario on every pitch. If you’re a player on the field not moving on every pitch you’re doing something wrong. My last 2 years of competitive baseball, I played 3rd base. As a fielder, my brain was working on “overdrive” for each pitch. I was thinking about what to do in the multiple situations that could occur if there was a ball in play & I was always on the front part of my feet slowly inching towards the ball. I couldn’t hit to save my life, fielding, for me, was much easier. I learned after a couple of years to attack the baseball in the field, it’s not going to hurt me.

I hope that whoever is watching Blue Jays Central, the pre-game show, is taking Gregg Zaun’s opinion with a grain of salt. I disagree with 80% of what he says, so make up your own mind. He’s a former catcher, when was the last time he played any position in a meaningful game other than catcher or hitter? Catching, hitting, & pitching are the few things I don’t know much about, that’s where I respect his criticism. He’s doing his job well though, I’m talking about him, but TV dives aren’t a real thing. Ever lost your balance while concentrating on a tiny ball as it comes closer to you? I’d dive or run into a fence to field a ball, & I wasn’t on TV? I guess I was playing the game wrong?

Weird, sounds like a desperate move that isn’t needed? “Come to my wedding reception, even though I don’t know you from a hole in the ground”?

Radio interview with members of Finger Eleven. Album out Friday, July 31st. Two other songs released with an iTunes pre-order sound more like the older 3 albums & not the last 2 albums.

OK, question I saw on www.loudwire.com. Who is your preferred band to see live Foo Fighters or Pearl Jam? I’ve seen Pearl Jam twice & Foo Fighters 3 times. It’s a very tough decision for me. My first Pearl Jam show was in the summer of 2005 in Saskatoon, my first Foo Fighters show was at the Summersault festival in Saskatoon in the summer of 2000. I think I’d have to go with Foo Fighters since they just play for a minimum of 3 hours. I love both bands live or on a recording!

http://loudwire.com/foo-fighters-vs-pearl-jam-best-live-band-round-2/

On Monday night’s Jimmy Fallon his musical act was “Echoesmith”. I misunderstood him, then he showed the cover of the vinyl album & repeated their. For 2-3 seconds I though “Cool, Aerosmith”! Nope totally different, but still really good!

I didn’t know they sang that song until just now.  I’m not a cool kid!

I’d really like Kelly Clarkson to be near Regina with Pentatonix opening for her on the current tour! I assume this would be a FANTASTIC concert!

New music for me starts on Friday & then the following 2 Fridays. “Highly Suspect”, Lamb of God”, & “Finger Eleven” 17th, 24th , & 31st. 5 songs from Highly Suspect on the pre-order from iTunes, 4 from “Lamb of God”, & 3 from “Finger Eleven”

Billy Corgan, Smashing Pumpkins, gets writing credit for a current song.

So many movies I’d like to see! Joe Dirt 2, Sisters, Trainwreck, Star Wars in 2017 (I think I peed a bit when I saw the trailer for it), etc. LANGUAGE!!!!

Looking at this list, I should have been at Comic-Con in San Diego, Third Ion should have been there too. When a band is influenced by video games, that would be THE place to be!

I fixed my iTunes on Sunday & ended up doing some tweaking, not twerking, to it on Monday, now all is well other than the recent release by Barenaked Ladies “Silverball”. It will play everywhere but on our TV? My computer & iPod, Kim’s computer, Phone, iPad & car radio. Just not our TV?

No, I’m not touching any streaming site EVER go ahead though pay for a radio station for the rest of your life? I’ll be here spending our money on iTunes & I’ll sleep well knowing it will be there.

James & I saw Lamb of God on the tour for this album in 2006? At the West Edmonton mall on a whirl wind 2 day trip. I saw the weirdest thing ever. A mother, father & 2 kids all there headbanging along to every Lamb of God song. I don’t know that I’ll ever see that again?

I agree with him 100%. But nothing will change with anyone being mad about the current situation for musicians. You can’t have it all for the consumer or all for the artists, there has to be a balance to it so everyone gets something out of it. Thank you Napster, iTunes, Spotify, Tidal, Pandora, Google Play, etc.

I’d have to agree, firing John Gibbons would be a band aid fix. Everybody on the field is under preforming other than rookie 2nd baseman Devon Travis & OF Kevin Pillar. 2/9 players can’t carry a team through 162 games unless the name on the jersey is Bautista or Encarnacion, even that’s a stretch!!

I like a bit of rap & a bit of country. I don’t by them though, Kim’s the big country fan here. If she buys it & I like it, I’ll put it on my iPod. Dixie Chicks are my go to country music.

That’s weird?? Even Dave Grohl says when he meets fans the kid is usually wearing a Nirvana shirt & the parent is wearing a Foo Fighters shirt?
