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

Music throughout the weekend.  “Finger Eleven”, “Paramore”, “Nothing But Thieves”, “Tool”, “Barenaked Ladies”, & “Slayer”


Our “niece” came over Friday night for a sleep over at “auntie” Kim’s & “uncle” Chris’.  They went shopping & bought the necessary stuff to make her slime glittery & cool looking for her.  While they were out shopping, I hung out with Brewster & watched the baseball game.  The kids (Toronto Blue Jays) will be fine in a couple of years, home runs everywhere.

I woke up Saturday morning & had breakfast with Kim & Hannah.  They went shopping again, for a variety of things.

I had a realization when they left & I was doing the dishes.  I become a Dad OMG!  I’m the guy that says “Hannah” in that dad disciplinary tone.  Before they went to bed Friday, Hannah & I watched some Bugs Bunny & Elmer Fudd cartoons.  It was part of that “Oh I can do this now” realization.

The thing that got me was, when she was dropped off here on Friday, her little brother, who is one & 1/2 , saw me on the couch, ran up to me & gave me a hug while smashing his forehead into my mouth.  He was fine, I was in minor pain for a few seconds.  Then he just stood there holding my hand for a while.  That was unexpected & melted me.  Later on Friday I went up to Hannah & said “What the heck?  Your brother gave me a hug, what about you?”  I got a hug & another one when they went shopping Saturday morning.  Yes, I have Saskatchewan Roughrider green finger nails at the moment & my left hand has sparkly green nail polish on the nail.  Both are very close to the 2 shades of green on my wheelchair.

So why don’t we have a child?  TONS of work in the beginning, much easier now.

Kim & I spent the rest of the day on the couch.  We watched “Avengers: Endgame”, Kim watched the show “Life in Pieces” on Netflix.  I did fixed some files on iTunes.  We went to bed early at 10:00 pm.

Today I went to see “Spiderman Far From Home” with Mitch & Rachel.  I already have my eggs boiled, my juice made, & my laundry folded.  Kim went for groceries on Saturday & has some stuff of her’s to deal with on her side of the bedroom, which I can’t get to.


Great movie!  I’m not giving any spoilers away though!


“Slayer” must be a little too scary for NASCAR.  That’s OK, sometimes they’re a bit too much for me!


YAY Led Zeppelin!


Only in Eastern Canada, not anywhere West of Ontario!  It’s quiet in Western Canada, literally!  Frogs & crickets at night in the smaller towns.




Our friends got married to one of their songs.  Honestly, that’s why I know who they are.  I only own 2 of their albums out of how many, I don’t know?  They’re a ska band.  A trio out of Toronto I believe.  Catchy for sure.  I started listening to them again a couple of months ago.

I really don’t care for a week of just stretching & not doing much for exercise.  I feel incredibly guilty.  I keep thinking “I should be exercising”.   Everything feels OK, but next week will be more of a buildup week, a week to gradually get up to my exercise goals.  My body can’t just “automatically” flip a switch & go all out.  I’d love for that to happen, but I’d end up in the same place I am now.  I really don’t need that to happen.

Some people tend to think my life is a cake walk, super easy, fantastic retirement.  That is so not the case!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  When I get up at 6:00 or 7:00 am, I get up & go ass much & as fast as I can.  Honestly, I’m more stressed now than I’ve ever been!  In the end it’s my fault, I always expect more/better from myself (self-inflicted stress).

LANGUAGE IN THE FIRST VIDEO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


In Flames shared it!  November 11th people!


Yep, lots of Chicago Cubs news, it has been 108 years I guess!



The Agonist shared it…..


Being beside drummer, Danny Carey of Tool, during a drum solo would be AWESOME!!!  Lucky kid!  Video inside the link.



Yeah, I watched the CMAs/Country Music Awards.  I’m not much of a country music fan, I watched it so I could hang out with my wife.  How did a rock & metal fan marry a country music fan?  Good thing all of her other attributes shine brighter than her taste in music.  At least the Dixie Chicks performed & Zac Brown Band were nominated.


This “Zac Brown Band” album “Jekyll & Hyde” is just as good as the “Lamb of God” album “VII: Sturm Und Drang” to me.


Conan & Ryan Reynolds scene from the “Notebook 2”


“Shit spackled freckle fart” quote from one of my now 3 favourite movies.  Here’s another hint.  “When WHAM! Earned the exclamation mark”


“Final piece of the puzzle”-Big Wreck.  Music from, what I assume, will be their near future release?!



Tony Iommi on the future of Black Sabbath



Third Ion……………….LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I guess using foul language solidifies your life as a metal/rock musician.  I only swore on stage if it was a lyric in a cover song.  BECAUSE IT’S NOT NEEDED OTHER WISE.  In the end it’s the group/musicians show.  If I’m offended by the language used, whoever it is has my money, & I have every right to leave, or not attend or purchase a ticket.  That being said, if language mattered to me I’d never see Foo Fighters live.


She was in the “Larry Flint” movie.  I never saw it or heard any complaints about her performance.



Kim has today off, E.D.O., she’s out getting groceries.  I’m stretching & taking care of the dishes among other stuff rocking out to “Iron Maiden” & “Barenaked Ladies”


I’ll catch you Sunday!!!
