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

4 day exercise total; 400 pushups, 400 leg lifts, 300 crunches, 0 tricep lifts, 0  squats, 0 back flexes.

I can’t seem to shake this cold.  I start coughing when I do certain exercise or as much as I’d like to.  That’s the reason for the low numbers this week…..again.  My energy is still quite low as well.  My energy is still fighting my cold.

I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the album “There is Nothing Left to Lose” followed by “Lamb of God” the album “Ashes of the Wake”

I exercised to “Bush” the album “Sixteen Stone”


I’ll let you know that on weekends my food consumption isn’t always super healthy.  I figure, keep everything in stricked moderation.  Now with that being said, there are things that I used to eat that I can’t handle anymore.  Example; My first bite of anything chocolate makes me cough uncontrollably.  I eat chocolate, but not like I used to.  Anything battered &/or deep fried I’m very concerned about how I’ll feel in 30 minutes.  This is more about me getting older than it’s about having had cancer.  After a road trip or just eating junk food, my body just cries vegetables & water.  I just don’t do that too much.

My doctor does have me on heart burn pills though.  My heart burn got quite intense when I had cancer.  I have thrown up stomach bile after forgetting or running out of my heart burn pills.

At this point I thought I’d be walking?  Frustrating, but I guess I’m not done exercising.  I should change it up a bit with some stretching & yoga 2 days a week, instead of working on my arms.  2 days of yoga a week, then 2 days of arms a week.

I got a call from an intake program.  They asked me a few questions & told me they would pass on my info to a psychologist, therapist, or psychiatrist.  I have enough pills as it is & obviously they’re not enough.  If I have to see a psychiatrist, I hope this person will talk more than just prescribe more pills?


I got my 2 preorder albums today.  “Pink” – Hurts 2B Human & “The Damned Things” – High Crimes

POSSIBLE LANGUAGE IN BOTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone deals with something mentally at some point in their lives, I think?  Even just mourning a death of a friend or family member.  Nobody is perfect, as hard as they try.


I would LOVE to have Myles Kennedy’s voice!


39 years ago Thursday “Black Sabbath” released the album “Heaven & Hell”.  Their first album with Ronnie James Dio.



I don’t know much about him.  My dad was a fan & a guy in Grade 10 drafting with me, loved this album, the only album I have & it’s from around that time.  It’s from 1995.  Yes, I’m staring down the barrel of being 40, not that big of a deal.  So here we go…..




Did you hear that the number 1 prospect will be playing 3B for the Toronto Blue Jays tonight?  I’ve been hearing about this every day since the beginning of the regular season (March 28th).  He’s 19 or 20 years old & his dad, Vladimir Guerrero, is in the Hall of Fame as a Montreal Expo.  I’ve heard WAY TOO MUCH about this kid.  No pressure kid, only the entire baseball world will be watching you.  His hype could likely hurt him?  If he doesn’t hit a home run tonight, many people will be disappointed.  Granted there are no big names on the roster at the moment other than starting pitchers that are already dropping like flies.

He’s a kid!  Burry him in the batting line-up for a few days, he doesn’t need more pressure than he has right now.  Have him batting anywhere from 6th – 9th in the line-up & let him catch his breath.

My Blue Jay roster is close to filled through 2021.  Starting Pitchers; Stroman, Borucki, Sanchez, Panone, & _____.

Catcher Jansen, 1B Tellez, 2B Biggio, 3B Guerrero, SS Bichette, Outfield McKinney, Hernandez, & Grichuk.

Bench & utility players; Urena, Gurriel Junior, Alford, Maile.

Bullpen; Giles, Tepera, Biagini, Mayza, Gaviglio, _____, _____.  As for a Designated Hitter, I have no idea?

I’ve heard more about this kid than I have about Avengers End Game.

I fell asleep to “Halestorm” the entire “Into the Wild Life” album, then “In Flames” the album “Sounds of a Playground Fading”

I exercised to “Stevie Wonder” 20 of his 21 “Greatest Hits”

If only “Superstition” was on “Songs in The Key of Life”

Brewster is at the groomers right now. He had an appointment at 7:00 am, and yes I got up at the same time Kim got up to get in the shower to take him to the groomers. He gets so excited if we say “Sara”, his groomer’s name. Weird guy LOVES getting a hair cut? I’ve never seen a dog so excited for a trim?

I’m really getting tired of Facebook for 2 reasons. Everybody has an opinion & I get that not everyone has the same opinion as the next person. Seems as though Facebook is the new way lots of people like to pick an argument about someone they have never met in person & have a different opinion. People were complaining about a “Pearl Jam” concert being canceled because the law changed in that state & “Pearl Jam” followed suit & canceled the show as many other bands did. The law was against the LGBT community. I said “Hey, it’s a concert that was canceled for a reason. If you don’t like that the show was canceled, stop harping on the band. Talk to someone in the Government about the new law”. Then random people complain about my opinion. I can’t change the law, I live in a different country! What did I do, & why are they whining & complaining to me?

Candice, who I met in University through her now husband Rydell, was getting heat for the fiasco of a child that was in a Gorilla exhibit. Everybody was outraged that the Gorilla was shot? What, they’d prefer if the child was shot instead? I have nothing against any animal, but REALLY?!?! Give your head a shake?

Now we have the shooting in Orlando. All of the gun loving Americans would probably say ”Well, if those gays had a gun on them this type of thing wouldn’t have happened”. It happened. Why did the idiot who did this have a gun in the first place? “Well, you can’t tell if someone will mentally snap after they purchase a gun”? Who the heck needs an AK-47? Unless you’re in the military or police force on duty, you shouldn’t need or own one. If you live in America, they’ll sell a gun to any John or Jane Doe that has the money. If the shooter didn’t have a gun none of this would have happened!

Yeah, the shooter was American, apparently a member of ISIS, & Islam! In that case he’s just as different as the rest of us in that he was all of those things & an extremist

Review of the upcoming Third Ion album!!


What album are you excited for being released in July?


Easy pick for me. That Blink-182 could be really good, really annoying, or just OK?

I’d be upset if Anthrax were to call it a career & quit.


Halestorm discuss preferred songs to play & their love of pop music.


Here’s a review of the new Red Hot Chili Peppers album, “The Getaway”


Bassist of Trivium, Paolo, speaks about everything regarding Trivium, including their new drummer!

What is Taylor Swift going to write a hit song about when she’s married? I see a pattern here, what’s the common denominator in this case?


I was really kickin’ it old school over lunch! Like 1995 old school.

James Hetfield, Metallica singer, does a duet with Heart?


Things heated up on day 2 of the “Stairway to Heaven” trial.


In Flames signed a new contract with Nuclear Blast

“In a way, IN FLAMES and Nuclear Blast share a similar story,” said IN FLAMES vocalist Anders Fridén. “Both started in a garage in Europe, both love metal and both have grown a lot bigger over the years. For these reasons, it seemed a natural fit to come back to the place it all started.”

Did anybody hear that Tremonti released the album “Dust”?

I hope I Mother Earth’s Facebook page means Our Lady Peace will be touring with them?

This could also be just a one time deal for residents in Ontario?

Song from the upcoming “Third Ion” album
