I fell asleep to “Green Day” the album “Dookie”, followed by “Wide Mouth Mason” their S/T album

I stretched to “The Watchmen” their 3rd album “Brand New Day”

 

I was ready Monday to do my exercise but after 300 crunches I knew to lay off.  My legs were getting sore.  I figure this should be a week of stretching only.  This leg/hip problem is really annoying & preventing me from doing what I’d like to do.  I was told by one of my doctors not to lay on my right side, so I didn’t.  After a while of sleeping on my left side, I woke up, stood up to get in my wheelchair & it felt as though I had a bruise on my left hip.  Now I can sleep on my back & somewhat on my right side.  This week will be stretching & guitar along with Blue Jay baseball!

I was going to do some pushups from my knees on Monday, then I realized I gave myself a large gash on my knee from crawling around.  It looks like I had knee surgery, far worse than it really is.  Didn’t really hurt ever, it just looks horrible.

I think I’ll continue the music/movie news.  I like it, stuff I’d like to know.  If all you want is surviving cancer news I’ll keep it at the top here.  If you want the pop culture stuff, I’ll put it below.  Like I said, the www.youtube.com links are just for reference if you don’t know who or what I’m talking about, you don’t need to play the entire clip.

As for this week, I’ll be practicing the song by “Clutch” & the song by “Foo Fighters”

I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the album “There is Nothing Left to Lose”, followed by “Foo Fighters” the album “Sonic Highways”, & finally “Judah & the Lion” the album “Folk, Hop n’ Roll”

Don’t feel as though you need to open every link.

Sorry but I desperately want to kick my sciatic nerve and get “Physical”.  I wake up, get ready for the day, have breakfast, & then it’s usually around 8:30 am & my day is done for the most part other than trying surprise Kim with something.

No, I don’t surprise her very often?  She deserves it though.  I was so close to being paralyzed at first.  I was the corps in a bag (Hoyer lift) with Kim.  I had a bigger wheelchair initially since I was around 275lbs.  I’m a large person.  I’m 6’1” and around 235 pounds.  Still some weight to go, 215 pounds should be pretty close to what I should be at.  I have no intent in stopping my exercise until I’m able to do most things!  You heard it here first!  My goal from the day I was conscious was to be able to walk or I’m gonna die trying!

 

How on earth do you put together a greatest hits album of Bryan Adams without “Cuts like a Knife”?  I think iTunes made me go shopping when I bought it.

http://loudwire.com/rancid-dropkick-murphys-2017-north-american-co-headlining-tour/

Old song, sorry.

 

I may have sang in multiple rock bands, but I wasn’t anything to write home about.  I was more of “the best of what’s around”.  I was good enough.  I had spent 3 years in the high school choir, but I had to change my register from singing low bass to a tenor voice or else I was headed in the direction of sounding like Scott Stapp of “Creed”.  I got my first guitar for my 21 birthday that was a tremendous boost of confidence for me, something to hide behind.  I heard 2 good things said about my voice.

Yes, we played Creed in my first band.  Remember this was in 2001.  The first thing I heard was that a friend of our drummer thought I had been replaced as the singer.  A few months before I got sick, I was singing in my brother’s group.  Our bass player went to the piano to figure out what note I had hit in a new song we were working on.  High C#.  I knew it was near the top of my range, but that was way up there.  I remember seeing a contestant on ‘American Idol’ hit the same note full voice.  Other than that, I’d never survive on ‘American Idol’.

 

Music is what keeps me going!  I started singing in a cover band in University back in 1999 or probably 2000?  I was far more nervous than before I learned guitar after my birthday in 2001.  In total we learned around 35 cover songs, & 7 original songs.  I wrote 3 & our guitar player wrote 4.  I managed to memorize all of the lyrics to the songs we were preforming.  I’ll leave you with 3 or 4 at the end here every day.

We played this at punk speed, just the first verse.  Very quick version!

I LIKE TO HAVE A SCHEDULED PLAN

I fell asleep to“Kongos” the new album “Egomaniac”

I exercised to “Bryan Adams” his greatest hits, then silence, not quite long enough?

I guess I did a little more than usual, that’s probably why the 16 song album didn’t play long enough. I’ve successfully added more push ups today & yesterday.

Yes, I like to have a plan for whatever is happening on a certain day or if there’s a certain event. 95% of the time it doesn’t work out according to anybody’s plan Life’s not a scheduled event. You’re born, & immediately people in your life usually do whatever is needed. I’m lucky to have 2 great familys. My family, Kim’s family & all of our friends! Something different will happen almost daily. We all need to take everything one day at a time. You know there is a good possibility that something will pop up & you’ll have to adjust your plan accordingly. I’ve never had a 5 year plan. I expected to have a 9-5 job, a couple of kids & an amazing wife! Only 1/3 of that plan worked out, it was that Kim is an amazing wife! Cancer changed the other 2 things. I had never planned on having cancer, who does? It hit me & everyone in my life, including me, had to adjust their plan. I never want to be a “burden” to anyone, but here I am with hundreds of really great people worrying about me. I’m fine, I’ve got this. If I need help I know you’re their to help me if I need it. So please don’t stress yourself out “worrying” about me? Hold my beer & watch this! I’ll call you if I need you or you call me if you need me? I worry way more about others than I do myself, that’s how I want to be! I think I’m somewhere in the middle though & I’ll likely be there until I become an “Avenger”?

I fell on my parents driveway on Friday & whoever saw it was ready to help me. I was fine, not even a scrape on me. That right there would be reason to panic, if I was bleeding, but I wasn’t. I got up immediately & got inside. You know what still hurts from Friday? When Brewster jumped on my lap & hit his tiny skull on my lip, no blood or anything visible, just a throbbing pain in my bottom lip! It’s a routine when we get in a car. He waits in the driver seat while I get my seat belt on, then I call him over to sit with me. He’s hit my jaw a few times & he’s overshot & hit his head on the window a few times.

Pentatonix shared it……………………

Friday is looking really good, music wise, not just the weekend. 2 albums for me!!!!!! “Third Ion” their 2nd album will be released that day “Biolith” & “Chevelle” will release the album “The North Corridor”

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Bryan Adams” “Greatest Hits”

 

60 leg lifts today. 30 on my hands & knees (each leg I count 1, 1, 2, 2 insets of 15) & 30 on my back while keeping my abs flexed. Now my exercise is done for the week, & I need it. I get quite tired when the end of the week comes. If I can do it, set aside 20-30 minutes to do some type of exercise daily? I’m in a wheelchair but my legs work, I just have no balance, but it’s coming as time passes!

 

I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “Vengeance Falls”

 

So according to a fancy map I saw, Saskatoon is 147 miles away…..& it’s flat with 2 turns, that’s why it feels like a 10 hour drive?

Most foul language doesn’t bother me. When I go to any music concert that is a metal or hard rock show I do blush about the language somewhat. “How dare you call me a mother@#$%#$? I payed cash to see you & I sit through a concert while you call the paying audience names? STOP!!!” If they’re drinking or smoking whatever on stage that’s fine unless it affects the musical performance, then I’m likely to leave. When I see Foo Fighters & Dave Grohl speaks between songs, “…I think to myself..” “Really? Every other word?” That becomes too much for me. Many bands I like do this. Albums are clean, concerts not so much. I know it’s not meant in a hurtful manner, but at some point enough is enough. When I swear it’s at myself for not doing something incorrectly or doing something stupid like hitting a wall with my wheelchair. I never swore on stage or in our songs, my choice actually nobody in any band I was in swore on stage. Not the vibe I wanted the audience to feel when any group I was with on stage.

Brewster ruined Kim’s sandals outside. He pooped on one, circled & peed on the other one then he came inside & I gave him some chicken!

It’s my Friday today. Kim has an E.D.O. tomorrow & I’ll likely be on the couch watching baseball or Netflix.

Pretty slow music news day. I’ll likely post some news on Sunday. Kim has n E.D.O. tomorrow & Monday is Canada’s May long weekend I’ll be her for emails & facebook messages though.

I’m not the general manager or the field manager for the Toronto Blue Jays, but they’re under preforming. At this point you could just throw piles of money at different players & it wouldn’t make a difference. Jose Bautista can’t play the field due to his shoulder but he can hit as the designated hitter. Jose Reyes can’t do anything yet, all-star short stop who has yet to go a season with the Jays and not suffer an injury 2012 season & every season since. Newly acquired left fielder Saunders is on the disabled list. Young players CF Dalton Pompey & starting pitcher Daniel Norris have been sent to AAA league. The Jays are just keeping their head above water, so things aren’t as bad as they seem. My line up would look much different. I’m just an armchair coach though. I wouldn’t even consider getting rid of field manager John Gibbons, he’s not a player determining the out come of the game There are player’s I’d shop around seeing what I could get in return for them not it’s not the 2 big batters.

Songs I like. “Garbage” Current Foo Fighters producer Butch Vig is a member of Garbage. He also produced Nirvana’s “Nevermind” album that knocked Micheal Jackson off of the number1 spot on the music charts.

I only own the Greatest Hits album which I bought from iTunes.

Connie Kaldor at The Exchange in Regina. Almost all of the Chemical Horizon, the band I was in until I got cancer, shows were at The Exchange. A couple of shows were at The Gaslight & The Distrikt. The Distrikt for me was pretty much the same for me as playing at Wembley Stadium for Dave Grohl. I saw so many great bands there! That was probably the most nerve racking experience for me on stage. A “Don’t screw this up” experience. There aren’t many places in Regina for original rock/metal bands to play. The Exchange, The Distrikt (which is no more), The Gaslight & occasionally The Riddel Center at the university. I guess we also played once at The Owl, the university bar, in a battle of the bands thing.

Chester Bennington (Linkin Park singer) on writing/singing with Stone Temple Pilots. I’m waiting for this album to be released this year also. I heard earlier this year they were close to being done recording the album.

Walk off the Earth cover “I Got You Babe”

I enjoy ‘Slayer’. I’d probably listen to more ‘Slayer’ if Kerry King guitar solo’s were in the right key of the rest of the group.

I’ve never heard of “Tame Impala”? Probably because they’re new, put their music on the internet for pennies & don’t tour the entire world.

New artist. I believe he was on The Ellen Degeneres Show earlier this week & I just watched him on last night Conan! Good voice with nothing but an acoustic guitar. I’d likely buy his album & rarely listen to it.

Terrible version of “Vasoline” by Scott Weiland. Yeah the same guy that sang/wrote the song with Stone Temple Pilots. Is he drunk or high or both?

I have an issue on the use of cell phones. When you see a “fail” video on youtube that’s fine, it’s hilarious. In a real life or death situation most people whip out their phone to get it on video? Who the heck stands there taking a video with a cell phone while someone might be dying? Maybe put the phone down & see if you can help? Remember, it’s a phone as well, not just a video camera.

A cover of Foo Fighters’ “Congregation” pretty good too!

Yes this was just weird. A regular season baseball game in Baltimore vs the Chicago White Sox, in a totally empty ball park, attendance 0, nobody! Wasn’t a safe place because of the rioting in Baltimore.
