There won’t be any stairs during this virus stuff.  I don’t really want to touch a public railing or clean them before & after I’m done.

I fell asleep to “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “Villains”

I exercised to “TOOL” the album “Lateralus”

I made the font size larger & now the spellcheck doesn’t work?  Sorry in advance.

It’s Tuesday evening as I write this.  Before I posted Tuesday’s blog, I slept in, & didn’t excersise until after I posted the blog.  I exercised to “Chromeo” on Monday & “Foo Fighters” afterwards on Tuesday.

I played my “Fender” Telecaster Tuesday evening & quickly learned the rhythm to this…

…none of the fast licks but the main riff & verse/chorus.  I opted on Tuesday to learn different bands/sounds on each guitar instead of just going from 1 album by 1 band.  Different stuff to learn with each different artist/band.  I found a set list of cover songs from my first band in University.  I’ll go through that to start.  Not all of our songs are on there, I’ll add to it as I go, I think we ended up doing about 40 cover songs & wrote 7 of our own?

I guess I’ll call this a ‘retraction’?  I said that P90 pickups were double coil pickups, they aren’t.  They’re slightly larger, louder single coil pickups.  You typically see single coil pickups on Fender Stratocasters.  Gibson created the P90 pickup to be louder, have a different sound & look since they were on Gibson’s first solid body guitar a 1950 Gibson Gold Top Les Paul.  Double coil pickups were made later on.  They were created to remain at the same volume level as the P90 but included the second coil to add the volume & reduce the hum, that’s why they’re now commonly called “Humbuckers”.  Here’s a Gibson Les Paul 1950 Gold Top with P90 pickups…

Best PRS SE on the market, aqua it is, I’m saving up!  If Kim decides on a trip, the money goes there.  The SE model was introduced to the SE line in 2019 & modeled after Paul Reed Smith’s Core guitar, it’s not going anywhere.  If I could afford a $5000 + tax guitar I’d get the Core model in Violet Blue Burst.  That would take me a decade or more to save for & Kim might kill me if I tried to!!!????

https://www.long-mcquade.com/124878/Guitars/Electric-Guitars/Paul-Reed-Smith/SE-Paul-s-Guitar—Aqua.htm

1 acoustic & 6 electrics are enough for me.  A PRS S2 on the way & an SE in the future & I’ll keep rockin’ n’ ROLLIN’ until I can’t anymore!  Your seeing these guitars a fraction of the amount of times I’ve looked at them!

S2 Custom 22 Semi-Hollow Body Guitar w/Gig Bag - McCarty Sunburst

I don’t necessarily switch guitars constantly.  The feel, shape, & sound of a guitar tends to dictate what comes next.  Example; my no-name brand green Les Paul aka “Kermit” feels & sounds great for most modern rock & a lot of grunge.  My Fender Telecaster aka “Ian” sounds best with blues, country, or most pre-1980 rock music.

Nope, I don’t need or want these guitars!  I’ve got my 7 string “Kiichichaos”, no-name Les Paul “Kermit”, Epiphone Explorer “Grohl”, semi-hollow Fender Telecaster “Ian”, an ordered semi-hollow PRS S2, & one day a PRS SE “Paul’s Guitar”.

All of these above are guitars I either don’t like the look or sound of, that’s why I’d say they’re not for me.  I find a floyd rose bridge to be more of a hassle/extra work on a guitar.  I’ve played 2 in my life & broke a string both times within 2 minutes.

Any & all youtubers I’ve been watching have helped me TREMENDOUSLY in relearning guitar after almost a 12 year hiatus!

If you like checking out guitars as much as I do, I recommend checking this blog out.  https://guitarbrat.music.blog/

 

Good things don’t change over night usually.  As with my exercise & guitar playing.  Practice, repetition & persistence are essential for the desired outcome.  Best thing for most people to remember ‘There’s always someone doing better’.  That’s what keeps me going!

I went walking this morning in our parkade.  WOW were my calves sore just standing up.  I guess the change in how I do my squats was a good thing?

When I find that somethings not working the way I had hoped, I take a different approach to it after multiple attempts.  I try to learn from my failures.  That doesn’t necessarily mean everything was terrible.  Take the positives with you & throw out the negatives, then adjust accordingly.

Example; My leg exercises aren’t helping my calves.  My thighs are doing well though.  I changed the way I do my squats this week to benefit both areas.  Only time will tell if I get the desired results?  I won’t know tomorrow, probably by the end of the month or a couple of weeks after that?

There’s no short cut that I know of for what I’m trying to do.  There are no instructions on how to overcome the effects of brain cancer.  I’ve got to continue to get better at what I’m doing.  I can’t just throw my hands in the air, walk away, & say “Ah, good enough!”  I literally can’t “walk” away…I should have said “roll”.

Since everyone is stuck at home, you might as well use this time to do all of those little things around your house that you never have time to do.  Don’t do them all at once though!  Spread them out, who knows how much free time you’ll have?  If you’ve already done most of the stuff around your house, was there anything else on your list to accomplish?  Don’t most people want to lose weight and get healthier?  Now’s the time!  What else do you have to do?

Call, text, Facebook, Tweet, Instagram, Skype, video chat, or email someone to participate with you.  That will make you accountable for meeting your goal that day!  Contact them before & after, have fun with it!

I know I yap about guitars a LOT, but there’s a reason for that.  I’m home with Brewster 9-10 hours a day.  I eat, exercise, shower, watch very little TV, & play guitar.  Until this past September I didn’t have much to look forward to the next day after I finished my exercises.  Now I have this hobby I LOVED doing back in my life for the first time since the beginning of February 2008.

I was watching this on “The Ellen Degeneres Show” the other day & did it Thursday (4 takes since I kept messing up the words) before I did my weight exercises.  I challenge Mitch Fraser, Cameron Rorquist, Sukhdeep Sandhu.  I’m only supposed to tag 3 people, but if you’re reading this, I challenge you.  If a 40 year old physically handicapped guy can do it, so can you!  I tried to sing a few different songs but messed up the lyrics the video is my 4th attempt.

My video is on the Facebook page.

 

The new album from thrash metal group “Testament” is GREAT!  “Titans of Creation”

I fell asleep to “Pearl Jam” the album “Ten”

Just stretching to “Soundgarden” the album “Badmotorfinger”

 

Yes, I’m feeling better, I just have an annoying cough that I can’t shake off.  My chiropractor saw my MRI.  He said I could have surgery ASAP or leave it until later on.  My leg & back feel fine right now, but I’ll see the surgeon & have the surgery as soon as I can.  Why wait, let’s get it done & over with.

I chatting with a friend of mine who’s friend’s daughter was mugged & shot in the face.  The daughter is 24-25.  My friend was angry that something that stupid & random could even happen.  Kim & I watch The Ellen Degeneres Show every day.  First thing when Kim gets home from work.  I couldn’t find the author she had on the show Wednesday, but I tried to remember something the author said.  The author of the book had lost a young child.

I remember the author saying ‘Don’t ask if you can do something.  Just do something to help.  Don’t make them reach out to you.’  That really got to me, that’s what I told my friend.

I never thought of it that way?  I’ll remember that.  Of course they need help, anyone in that situation would.  The smallest thing can go a long way.

Nothing is certain in life other than “I know I was born & I know that I’ll die the in between is mine”

Sure, the in between is yours but there’s often random people or things that can mess with your life.  You have to learn how to deal with situations that arise.

I remember being in the hospital & people would ask me what I needed or wanted.  Cam & Michelle asked me what I needed.  I wanted to live, but that’s not what I asked for.  I asked for a copy of “Batman: The Dark Knight” that had recently been released.  My uncle in Airdrie, Alberta also asked what I needed I said ‘The Rick Mercer Report’ book.

I don’t know what I was thinking, the fact that they caught me awake was a shot in the dark!  I watched the movie in the hospital.  I tried to read the book but didn’t realize I had bad double vision.

I didn’t really know I had cancer with a very slim chance of surviving.  I figured I was maybe sleep deprived or something like that.  Corey brought me the 2nd Thornley album that he knew I was waiting for.  Laurie brought me 2 signed guitars, 1 signed by Ian Thornley for me, & 1 signed by Chad Kroeger of “Nickelback” to raffle off.

Those all may seem like little insignificant things, but they’re were all sincere & showed that they care.

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today.  Slow/Quiet week.  Stretching everyday & many routine appointments to come by the end of July.

 

I just googled release dates for 2017 that are confirmed, but yet to be recorded, I saw no Tool.  I did see A Perfect Circle though under the TBA section.

EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL & THE WEEKEND’S HERE!!!

I fell asleep to “Walk off the Earth” the album “Sing it all Away”

I exercised to “Coldplay” the album “A Head Full of Dreams” followed by “Corrosion of Conformity” the album “Wiseblood”

SHARE THIS PLEASE?

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

Weekly total; 7500 crunches, 710 leg lifts, 250 push ups, 400 squats.

80 squats, 1500 crunches, 140 leg lifts & 60 push ups everyday, 5 days a week.

I’d like to see 100 squats a day, 200 leg lifts a day, & 100 push ups a day. It may take a while but I’ll get there eventually.

I didn’t make it to my pushups on Monday, that’s why the total is off a bit. I was tired. Today I managed to do 10 more leg lifts than I have before. The point of doing them on your back is to breathe & keep your abdominal muscles flexed, while raising & lowering your leg at a controlled speed. If I hear a thump when I lower my leg, that doesn’t count, I do it again!

I was given exercises to do away from the Wascana Rehabilitation Center when I left. There’s quite a bit more to get to!

I think I’ve said this before, so sorry if I’m repeating myself? The further away I get from having cancer, the less I think of it. My cancer is long gone. “The line is a dot”

Those who have passed from cancer, well it’s going to take a while for others to feel normal. Nobody needs to worry about me, my cancer, or the future. We’ll cross that bridge when we get there. I exercise 5 days a week to make the crossing of that bridge easier!

Remember, when you go to work I work too. Just shorter hours being paid by disability & unemployment insurance. I exercise 1 ½ – 2 hours a day & write this as mostly the info I want to know & other nibblets for you. That’s how my days work.

I see far too much Metallica news on the horizon. I’m not a fan of Metallica in general. I do own 4 albums though 2 of them are on my iPod & from iTunes. The album with the symphony & the “Garage Inc.” album are on my iPod, but I rarely listen to them. I bought the CD of the “Black” album & “Master of Puppets”, they’re in my closet for good. This new song sounds promising though. I’ll wait to hear it before I buy it. I’m still a skeptic.

BACKGROUND MUSIC

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Econoline Crush” the album “The Devil You Know”. They’re from Manitoba, I’m not sure what part though. Cameron Rorquist & his sister Jackie might know?

From the ’90s when Much Music played music videos 24 hours a day.

 

Forgot to take my night time pills=awake at 5:00 am. Went to bed at 11:00 pm after watching some recorded TV, fell asleep really fast, which never happens even before I had cancer. I usually toss & turn for an hour, good thing Kim is in a deep sleep in 30 seconds or less. Kim went to bed long before I did.

 

At the moment it’s 9:13 am. I’ve had breakfast, zipped through 2 late night talk shows that I record (Jimmy Fallon & Jimmy Kimmel). I’ve done 40 squats followed by 420 crunches, I’ve had 700ml of water. Now I’m here.

 

I really wanted to listen to Opeth & Dream Theater yesterday. When one song takes 6-24 minutes you pretty much have to set aside a day for just music. I could listen to it as background music, but I prefer to concentrate on what I’m listening to when it’s that complex, stuff I wouldn’t even attempt to play. When it’s at a public venue such as a bar, restaurant, gym…, it fades away until I hear something I really like, then I dance like this….

 

We rented “Grizzly Man” from iTunes over the holidays. I want my $5 back & the hour & a ½ of my life back. The movie is like this blog. The rants of a crazy person, but this blog is free. I thought it would be more about the bears…………….it wasn’t. The guy admits he’s bi-polar & stopped taking his medication. The film is more about him than the bears.

 

One of the members of Dream Theater almost played on Pink Floyds album “The Wall”

Lzzy Hale of Halestorm sings with the Trans Siberian Orchestra

http://loudwire.com/halestorm-lzzy-hale-performs-trans-siberian-orchestra-ohio/

 

Coachella has announced the 2016 line up & yes Guns n’ Roses are one of the headliners 99% sure it will be the original line up, there’s still a 0.1% chance it could be Axl & Friends.

http://consequenceofsound.net/2016/01/coachella-announces-2016-lineup-guns-n-roses-lcd-soundsystem-to-headline/

People like them. I don’t have to understand why, I just have to acknowledge that fact?

EXTREMELY DISTURBING ALBUM COVERS FROM NON-METAL ARTISTS!!!

http://diffuser.fm/most-disturbing-album-covers/?fblw16#photogallery-1=1

 

I’ve never been a fan of “Jane’s Addiction” but I’ve heard many people rave about how great they are. I’ve heard 3 of their songs 1 of them I enjoy. Below is 1 of the 2 songs I’ve heard & don’t like, it was also my first exposure to the group.

Mark Tremonti, Alter Bridge guitarist & Tremonti singer/guitarist, deserves a break. He finished a year long tour for his solo project in December, he’s been writing while on tour for Alter Bridge & I just saw a photo of him in the studio or rehearsal space with other members of Alter Bridge writing their 5th studio album. He’ll be releasing his 3rd Tremonti album later this year! He sounds like a workaholic to me. I guess that’s what happens when you enjoy your job. I liked my job as well, sure I got frustrated when the printing press wasn’t cooperating with me, but I do miss it more than I expected.

 

It’s funny because it’s true!!!!

I’m a U2 fan so this is right up my alley. The last 3 U2 albums are very forgettable for me. “Zooropa” isn’t my favourite album of theirs but I do like it. I checked my iTunes, I’ve put 16 U2 CDs on my iTunes, including 2 “Greatest Hits” albums that both came with an extra CD of B-Sides & I have the recent album that was free & sounds nothing like U2.

Brewster actually came to play with me while I was on the floor doing my exercise!!! That made me happy, he hasn’t done that in the last 2 weeks! He usually puts his squeak toy beside my head while doing my crunches today he left it right on my face. We played for a bit but he really just wanted me to rub his throat & belly.

One trilogy done many more to watch! I forgot how good the Christian Bale “Batman” trilogy is, & how good/dark Heath Ledger played The Joker. Thanks Cameron & Michelle Rorquist that was my weekend! Baseball, Football & Batman!   Cam & Michelle bought “The Dark Knight” DVD while I was in the hospital.  I had cancer, they asked me what they could do or what did I need?  My response “The Dark Knight” movie??? FANTASTIC weekend on the couch! Even Kim got into the Batman movies. Brewster even calmed down a bit, the only problem with every action movie is the sound. You blast the sound to hear the dialogue, then you have to turn it way down during the action sequences, so the people on the other end of town don’t hear the movie. Ah, well. What trilogy next? 6 Star Wars, Back to the Future, original Lord of the Rings (sans Hobbit), 4 American Pie movies, Austin Powers, etc. Better be careful, Kim may hurt me.

Let’s get something straight? I’m perfect but Kim’s a genius. Shh! Don’t tell her I said that OK….actually……………..DELETE, DELETE, DELETE, how do you work this fandangled contraption????????

No I do like Megadeth, they shared this on Facebook….

BREAKING NEWS!!!! Kim is home today, she’s better than last night when she felt she might be catching the flu. Anyways she was going through her CD binder & found my Dave Grohl autographed ticket stub & news paper photo from 2000 in Saskatoon! Kim’s feeling much better today but not quite right yet. This song is the only one in the first 3 Foo Fighters’ albums that I tolerate & wait for the next song “Learn to Fly”.

Yes, the video of the older gentleman trying to put on his rain cape is funny. Notice in this life or death moment the phone catches all of the action. I don’t know what you’d do in this situation but video recording it would be the furthest from my mind?

Last night, after I posted my blog, I found out that you can still share your digital music if the person doesn’t use iTunes Match (home sharing without turning on a computer & unable to stream in a vehicle. No biggie, back to iTunes home sharing since Match is actually taking the songs I purchased from iTunes away from our TV on 2 recently purchased albums. They’re fine on any other device. Just means my iPod classic will be in the vehicle on long trips along with Kim’s phone.

Paramore shared it………

WAY TO YOUNG TO DIE!!! I went into the hospital with stage 4 brain cancer at 28 years & 6 days old.

Best. Video. On. The. Internet. Today anyways or at the moment.

Songs I like. “Matthew Good/Matthew Good Band” I own about 7 Matthew Good Band CDs. I can’t find the first one that even he doesn’t have, someone stole it. Only 3 of them were really popular. This was Canada’s response to the “grunge” movement.

BEDOUIN SOUNDCLASH & OUR WEEKEND

Sunday, February 9th 2014

 

I’ll be honest, I don’t know much about Bedouin Soundclash.  I bought the one album on CD in 2005, it had Corey & Jolene’s wedding song on it, this song as they walked down the isle after the ceremony!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2NzaE9Bs5w off of the album “Sounding a Mosaic”.  It is a pretty solid album all the way through.  Before I had cancer I clicked on “Auto Fill” on my iTunes to see what it did?  I wound up with a ton of music I didn’t like on my iTunes and as I looked at Bedouin Soundclash today I see I have their album “Street Gospels” as well.  I guess I’ll keep that along with the double album of Pearl Jam’s “Lost Dogs” and I think there’s another album I kept? 

 

Anyways if you use iTunes, DON’T CLICK ON THAT BUTTON!!!! I spent days deleting stuff from my iTunes  including doubles of songs I already had!  I have all of Foo Fighters albums and it doubled each song on “The Colour and The Shape” album.  I didn’t realize that until I was listening to the album on my iPod and I’d hear each song twice in a row!  I really like Foo Fighters, but not that much!  It was a very time consuming experience! 

 

You could pick any song off of “Sounding a Mosaic” and enjoy it if you like that song.  They don’t all sound the same, but they’re all good!  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxDSgH_9S9Y

 

Our weekend.  First of all the week should be more even, 3 days for a weekend and 4 days a week for work?  I don’t work but I’m still busy on random “days of the week”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_4POA-4GYo

 

Our weekend started Friday night.  Supper with Cam and Michelle, then back to our condo they hadn’t seen yet.  We were supposed to go to The Exchange to see my brother’s group Room 333 play on Saturday night, Kim wasn’t feeling so good, so we had to cancel.  They have another show sometime in March.  On The Exchange side (bigger side than the Club side than they were playing on Saturday).  Today we had brunch at Corey and Jolene’s house.  Probably the only “…..real….” meal I’ll get this week.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yrch66gdjjk We got to see baby Hannah again today she seemed to be in a good mood!  Lots of big smiles from her!  She had a stare down with me she was probably thinking “Who’s the hairy creepy guy?” at the time.

 

Kim & I are juicing still, just took a break for Friday evening and brunch today.  Supper will probably be a lettuce wrap and a juice.  I was looking at  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEQAie8ABLE and didn’t like what I saw.  I’ve put on weight, probably because I’ve continued the bad eating habits I had in the WRC.  I could eat anything near the last 2 years there and not gain any weight, cereal, chocolate, multiple pounds of Blue Whales, 15L of eggnog, etc.  I’m not morbidly obese, “fat” or anything, just a little chunkier in my belly area http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2mU6USTBRE

THE LAKE

Tuesday, July 16th

 

I’m not going to my parents cabin this week.  Kim was supposed to go to Winnipeg this weekend, that plan fell through the cracks.  So I’m home.

 

This will be my final blog of the week, I have more than enough stuff on my plate, like speaking properly and playing guitar.  Along with getting our house on the market.  Our realtor sent Kim a text today saying he had family issues in another province, so we’ll see him next week hopefully.  I’ll be checking email and facebook though of course.

 

Did anyone watch the home run derby last night, I know most of you didn’t.  I couldn’t sit through the first round.  I’m not 13 again, so it carries merit for me.  Now the All-Star game decides which league has home field advantage National or American League.  That’s just wrong to me!  It’s just a show for the fans.  If it impacts the playoffs give each player on the winning team a $10,000 donation to the charity of their choice.  Some type of incentive to win and not determine anything in the playoffs.

It was probably the same when they had rockin’ the valley.  There is a proper festival etiquette.

A.  Help anyone who falls down

B.  If someone get’s hurt clear the way for them to a bouncer

C.  At the end of the day, you probably didn’t go to hurt someone

I won’t be able to make it to The Exchange tonight.  I would really like to see 2/3 bands (metal) but it will be late for Kim who is working tomorrow in the morning. Seeing Into Eternity opening for Holy Grail would be awesome.  It starts too late because of a KISS show.
