My mother has seen more than her fair share of people having cancer, especially since I was diagnosed in 2008.  Her mother died of breast cancer in December of 1999.  Since my diagnosis she’s seen many people not survive.  Our family friend who she met at work, our friend’s mother, my grandfather, my aunt, and another friend she met at work, & unfortunately her cousin has recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer recently as well.  I survived, I’m fine wheelchair & an eye patch, but I’m here!  I don’t think she needs anymore deaths to witness?  That list of people is more than enough!

People worry about me, too much sometimes.  When I eat, I HOOVER my food.  Sometimes I choke.  I had a rough day of chocking on food, & I was with my family.  I coughed & choked a few times.  I was fine & everyone was concerned.  I get it, that’s fine, annoying but fine.  This happens 1 or 2 times a week.  Everyone freaks out & in the end I’m OK.  Do people know that I also cough & “choke” at lunch when there’s nobody around?  I’m fine, please don’t worry about me.  If I hadn’t had cancer, I’d still be OK & people wouldn’t worry as much about me.  Hold my beer & watch this!


Lamb of God isn’t metal?



I tried to learn these 3 songs before I was diagnosed.  Too difficult for me!

Yet, these 3 songs were pretty easy to learn?????????

If I can’t play it or play it on guitar while singing, it doesn’t happen.


I just can’t get into “Superjoint”, & I’ve tried listening to it.  Song inside the link.


“Eagles of Death Metal” prep documentary of the shootings in Paris


“Alter Bridge” behind the song “Cradle to the Grave”


It happened!  Parents tricked their kids by pretending to eat their treats!


Consequence of Sound review of “Doctor Strange”


Masterpiece Review of “Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers” album “Damn the Torpedoes”

Yes, that’s producer Jimmy Iovine who was on “American Idol” helping the contestants before they performed their song.  Question is, Do you think he’d let Tom Petty through on “American Idol” or Bob Dylan for that matter?  I don’t!


I guess keyboard players have their place.  Usually they’re in the back & not seen much.  Too bad Elton John & Billy Joel aren’t included on this list?  Neither is the dude from Foo Fighters or Pearl Jam though.

LANGUAGE!!!  The keyboard is mixed at the front of the mix at one point though!


The Chicago Cubs won the World Series last night for the first time since 1908.  Three World Series wins 1907, 1908, & now 108 years later 2016 Champions.  CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL CHICAGO CUBS FANS!!!!!!!!!  Long wait for that one!!


This could be really good or absolutely terrible.  Seems to be par for the course with Revolver, for me there’s usually far more miss than hit.


Robin Williams & Bobby McFerrin.  I’ve never heard this?


Sorry, my routine is off this week?

I saw my chiropractor for my back pain Wednesday morning. Had a message & some adjustments (cracks). I guess my back muscles are very tight? I might have to go back next week? We’ll see how the weekend goes? It does feel better, & I have some stretches to do for my back that he showed me. Could be worse I guess. This has happened before. I hurt my back twice in high school. Twisted at my desk to borrow a pencil, went home for lunch, layed on the kitchen floor & couldn’t go back for the afternoon. Second time in high school. I picked up a piece of paper from beside my bed & there went my back! Then multiple times after that & 7 cortisone shots in my spine, through 4.5 years in the hospital. All in all, not that big of a deal.

10 best live bands in metal right now.

I’ll take Trivium, Lamb of God, or In Flames as far as “popular” metal bands go.

There are a TON of “famous” metal bands I haven’t seen live yet, like “Iron Maiden”.

Kim’s watching a Tony Robbins thing on Netflix at the moment. He could compete with Dave Grohl for the number of F-Bombs during a live show! Nothing like paying a stranger to tell you how to live your life!

These are the 3 albums in heavy rotation here now!

From what I know, Alter Bridge will release their 5th album in September sometime? I think The Pretty Reckless have an album recorded? The only preorder I have is Sum 41 for October 7th. I have these 2 songs so far.

Nothing from Alter Bridge yet & no album announced by The Pretty Reckless so far, just this single. The Sum 41 song will be on the upcoming album.

Top 50 metal bands of all time

Quite a few overrated bands, some bands missing from that list & some right on point.
