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

5 day exercise total; 900 leg lifts, 900 crunches, 600 squats, 450 back flexes, 120 pushups, 600 curls (10 pounds on left arm & 7 pounds on right arm), 400 tricep extensions w/5 pound weight, 400 shoulder raises w/5 pound weight,  stretching, & yoga.

I fell asleep to “Jeff Buckley” the album “Grace”

I exercised to “Ozzy Osbourne” the album “Bark at the Moon”

 

Great week for me!  I don’t want to lose my momentum!  This week felt like a big step forward finally.  All of that little stuff definitely helped.  Long road to go yet.

I figured it out, well my new goals for my exercise in the morning only anyways.  Legs, abs, & back 3 days a week.  Weights, arms, stretching, & yoga 2 days a week.  Works up a really good sweat a cold shower is more than welcome afterwards.

I keep track of everything on here in a notebook & add my exercise totals for the day as I go.  I’m trying to cut more sugar out of my diet.  Hopefully just natural sugar & less alcohol.  Kim came home last Saturday with 4 x 500 ml cans of beer & made brownies.  I had a brownie, but no beer or other alcohol.  The small amount of natural sugar in the Bubbly work wonders instead of alcohol.  Figured I’d just stop the alcohol completely for a bit & try to clean the system out.

6 small meals a day & 3-5 liters of water, maybe a cup of black coffee, & a bubbly a day.  Weekends are usually pretty tame on the food intake, unless we’re out with people.

Picked up my acoustic guitar yesterday, felt pretty good after a year.  I didn’t want to put it down.  Eventually I’ll need an amplifier with a pedal for distortion & clean channels.  Hopefully my tuner pedal/noise compressor, 2 effect pedals & cords are still kicking around.  Pretty sure they are.

I think this is the amp I’d get as long as it’s a cheap solid state amplifier, tube amps sound better, but they’re expensive to buy & maintain! Practice amp with a foot switch should suit me well.  I had a Randall half-stack before, I won’t need anything that big or loud, this should do the trick!  I don’t know how much they cost though?  I’m sure it will be at or above $500, start saving now I guess.

I’m really starting to worry about our dog, Brewster, he’ll be 14 in January.  He has a heart murmur & very bad anxiety.  Somebody has to be with him or he freaks out scratching at the door, while barking & whining the entire time.  He’s also started marking when he’s around any other dog.  He’s small, 12 pounds, a Bichon/Shi-tzu cross.  He’s also starting to trip with his back legs.

This might sound odd to some but he’s my kid, my child.  He went to a doggy daycare on Tuesday for the morning.  I just about broke down when he left.  I get it, we don’t get out much because we stay home with him or he stays with Kim’s sister & hubby, Sherry & James, since they don’t have a dog so he won’t mark there.  I get it, but I don’t like the daycare thing.  I just miss him when he’s not here.

That was just an assessment to see how he’d fit in with the other dogs.  Report card was good!  They said he played really well with the other dogs & he is very well mannered.

 

Finally, a Chris Cornell signature Gibson guitar!!!!!

Lyrics for the “Tool” album out today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WHY dear Lord, WHY?  I gave up on “Disturbed” over a decade ago, I’m not in my mid-20s anymore!

Labour day classic here!  Saskatchewan Roughriders vs. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers!  Always a fun game to attend!  Kim’s not a football fan so her & Brewster stay home.

Pretty easy to say that I see a FLOOD of “Tool” news coming, ASAP, beware!

Spider-man breaking news, new deal between SONY & Disney?  Still a rumour, but possibility of a better outcome for fans.  SPOILER IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN AVENGERS ENDGAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

BIG RELEASE DAY FOR ME

I don’t do reaction videos I like to sit and REALLY concentrate on what I’m listening to the first 3 or 4 times I listen to any new album.  After that I’ll play it whenever if I enjoy it & probably really focus in on it again when I have the time.  2 HUGE album releases for me today!  Big Wreck & a new Tool album after 13 years & roughly 4 months.  These are the singles that were already released.

 

BIG WRECK   …but the sun

 

TOOL   FEAR INOCULUM

EXERCISE & WALKING/ASCOT ROYALS

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

I fell asleep to “Janelle Monae” the album “Dirty Computer”, followed by “Testament” the album “The Legacy”

I exercised in silence.  I forgot to put the universal remote on the charger last night.

 

I will openly admit that even when I was free of cancer & my rehabilitation, I was an asshole.  I was VERY depressed & wouldn’t listen to anyone.  That wasn’t me, never has been or will be.  I am truly sorry to those I was a moron to, publically & privately.  Thank you for forgiving me.  You chose to forgive me, I didn’t force it on anyone.  THANK YOU!!!!!  It may have been years ago, but I still feel bad about it.

I got over that.  Getting into & out of a wheelchair is pretty normal now, not something I’ve stressed about in quite a while.  My legs work a bit & the exercise definitely helps with my walking.  I can stand for quite a while, as long as I have something to hold on to, or with the aid of another person.  30 minutes of standing in one spot isn’t out of the question.

I’m more able to keep my walker (on wheels, chest high) pointed in a straight direction.  Kim follows me in case I stumble or need to sit.  It’s really not that bad, especially since I’m getting stronger.

144 meters is my longest walk without a rest.  It used to be 200, rest, 400, rest, then 200 more, years ago.  I should not have stopped doing that, 800 meters twice a week when I was released from my rehabilitation.  I used to enjoy walking with my walker but something changed after doing so a few times?

Just being alive & able to work on myself sure beats the alternative.  I do have anxiety issues in large groups, talking on the phone to a stranger, or just meeting new people.  Anxiety is likely my biggest issue at the moment.  I tend to clam up in a group of roughly 10 or more people, even if I know them.

 

Oh, the Grammy Awards.  There is no reason to make any art a competition, but alas “….here we go again….”

A bitter sweet win for the deceased Soundgarden singer, Chris Cornell.  Other awards are listed as well.  “Greta Van Fleet” won best rock album for their 1st release of 2, 4 song EPs, sold as an 8 song album.  The really good album, not the one that’s just OK.

http://loudwire.com/chris-cornell-best-rock-performance-winner-2019-grammys/?fbclid=IwAR0_Pub2XdpwIM41gEbHSMefbbYrlRiBkeVkc2WG8IXrd-nePrgGmwmuv8k

I watched about 10 minutes of CNN on Monday.  They were talking about how great it was to have so many women winning awards, Alicia Keys hosting, & other women involved with the show.  That’s great & Alicia Keys hosting the show was FANTASTIC!  I’ve always thought she’s AWESOME!  As for being nominated, I don’t care what sex, race, or religion you are, I just want the best musician to be nominated & win an award.  If a woman or man wins, I just want the best nominee to win.

I agree any woman should have equal pay if a male is doing the same or similar job, I’m all for that.  I didn’t realize that the pay inequality was happening.  Equal pay should be a no brainer if you ask me!

Rock & metal music are far from dead, even though the Grammy Awards for those categories are not aired on TV.  How many Grammy awards has Lamb of God won?  Guess, I’ll wait……………………………..6 if not more.  The Grammy academy is of no use in promoting rock or metal with the awards for those categories.  “2 roads diverged in a yellow wood” if you want to make money you take the road most travelled.  If you want to attract possible fans to classical, rock, or metal you take the road less travelled.

There were 3 acts that REALLY caught my attention because they were SO good.  Janelle Monae, H.E.R., & Kacey Musgraves.

Carappé, I know the Saskatchewan Roughriders were in the hunt for him.

https://www.cfl.ca/2019/02/11/report-lions-sign-mike-reilly-four-year-deal/

From what I can tell from “Big Wreck’s” Facebook page, they are nearing completion of their next album!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Janelle Monae performed this song on the Grammy Awards.  I bought the album “Dirty Computer” on Tuesday.  She absolutely BLEW me away.  She’s like “Prince” 2.0!

The original cartoon was fantastic.  I’m anxious for the live action version!

 

ASCOT ROYALS   (More pop than rock)

I saw them open for “Big Wreck” in February 2017, AWESOME SHOW!  Unfortunately they never achieved success like I thought they might.  As soon as I got home I purchased their full album & their EP.  The EP was released a week before I saw them.  Another great band that didn’t make it big.

Friday night we stayed in & watched the Blue Jays try really hard to lose a game, but they won…while I had beer!

Saturday I went to the brand new football stadium for a concert & to check out the spot we’ll (my parents & I) be sitting for the season.  Our tickets are FANTASTIC!  Wheelchair accessible (no stairs), park almost directly across the street, come in on the concourse (stadium is dug into the ground), very close to center field (were on the 50 yard line, so 5 yards from center field), I was able to get to the washroom near us.  First time in years I’ve been able to have anything to drink at the stadium since the “wheelchair” washrooms at the old stadium weren’t really wheelchair accessible.

Watched the Blue Jays win in the afternoon (5 in a row now), then saw Our Lady Peace, Johnny Reid & Bryan Adams (who thought those 3 acts would ever work together???  Because they don’t).  Our Lady Peace played mostly stuff from the first 4 albums which was about perfect for me.  Johnny Reid was Johnny Reid, & Bryan Adams was FANTASTIC as always!!!!

Our seats are great can’t wait for the season to start!  I hope they can win more than 4 or 5 games this year.

Sunday is more baseball, stuff to do around the house & supper with my grandparents.

 

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today.

 

Why are people complaining about the new Linkin Park?  It’s basically free and you can hear it before you spend at most $12.  Sorry, I can’t justify hatred of an album you can hear before purchasing it so cheap.  Hell, back in my day an album on this thing called a Compact Disc with one song on TV & Radio (if you’re lucky) & would cost me $25.

Friday evening a friend of mine from my teenage years when I worked at the Delta hotel came by for a drink.

Watched Blue Jays in :30, & it wasn’t good, Friday evening’s game wasn’t any better.  I expect the from the trade deadline on that this will be a rebuilding team, out with the older expensive players & in with many young players & prospects for the future.  Between 4 players is roughly $78 million.  The disabled list is HUGE at the moment $85 million worth of players injured at the moment.

I spent most of the day Saturday at my parents’ place sitting in the shade on the back patio.  Mom & I were watching my Dad get the hot tub working as Goose & Brewster followed him around as though they were helping!

Kim was cleaning here, I figured Brewster & I should just get out of the way.  When she cleans, she’s on a mission!  Dad picked Brewster & I up around 11:00 am.  Kim was out for a tea with a friend from out of town, came home & started cleaning!

Sunday night Kim & I binge watched the last 5 or 6 shows of “13 Reasons Why” on Netflix.  Hard to watch the last few episodes, fantastic show though!

Kim’s out with her sister right now getting some bedding flowers.  I slept in until about 11:30, I was so comfortable I didn’t want to move, in the end my bladder got me out of bed.  Handled the dishwasher, had breakfast after this I have a few more things to get to!

I could post 276 posts of other bands covering songs by Chris Cornell, but I don’t think anyone needs to hear them all.  Yes, he died & he will be missed.  I read some of the newspaper at my parents Saturday a small article regarding his death.  He was on anti-anxiety pills.  He was supposed to take one a day, he took one, played the concert, & took another one.  The members of Soundgarden said he was dizzy & slurring his words.  Later on, in his hotel room he hanged himself “unintentionally” according to his wife.  She said he was not in the type of mood that she would ever think he’d commit suicide, no signs of it at all she said.

I fell asleep to “Diemonds” the album “Never Wanna Die”, followed by “The Northern Pikes” the album “Snow in June”, & finally “Phillip Phillips” the album “Behind the Light”

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

The extent of my week has been rather focused on my sciatic nerve.  I saw the chiropractor the other day and a message therapist Thursday evening.  It’s not perfect but it’s MUCH better than it was!  My chiropractor got the muscle to move quite a bit & at my message therapy appointment Thursday, she could tell.

It’s not perfect but more of a “Hope this can tide you over until the cortisone shot”?  It is really nice to have such little pain in my leg for the time being!  It still could be 5 weeks or so until an appointment can be made for my MRI.

 

“There’s no such thing as a stupid question”.  I’ve heard that many times over my 37 years & it’s always been true.  Never be afraid to ask anyone anything.  Obviously I need help from time to time.  Here’s an example; we were out for dinner a few weeks ago.  I had to use the washroom before we left the restaurant.  I asked where it was & I was on my way.  I got to the washroom & because I am still quite weak, the door felt as though it was 100lbs.  A waitress was walking by so I asked if she could help me with the door.  No problem!  Sure she’s half the size of me, but much stronger than I.

When I was discharged from the WRC, I could barely lift one of our dinner plates, now I lift 2 or 3 at a time when I’m emptying the dishwasher.  Things are getting back to “normal”.  The only thing is that “normal” looks a bit different than it used to.  There’s no point in me getting frustrated or angry about my situation.  What good will that do anyone?

After so much time with certain doctors I realized something.  I’m living on borrowed time.  These doctors deal with everybody’s medical issues every day, for the 15 minutes I’m there I might as well keep things light & not so serious.  When I show up we don’t need to be so serious & wonder what the next pill is I should ween off, let’s have some fun & forget about my cancer for a bit!  Can you imagine how a doctor of any kind can get stressed, let alone a doctor dealing with a cancer patient can get?!  I’m alive!  Don’t be so serious all of the time.  I’ll be serious when I ask for help with something & once it’s done, I shall return to being a nut job!  (Stick with my strength)

Who gets to take an afternoon off to be at a baseball game at 4:00 pm eastern time in N.Y.? It baffles me that they have a decent crowd for games at that time?

So I was watching “The Ellen Degeneres Show” while she interviewed Hillary Clinton. They’re both tired of the campaign, who isn’t? At least when it’s all said & done they get to vote. As Canadians we just get to watch the 3 ring circus called Donald Trump until, hopefully November. If he gets elected I’ll be EXTREMELY worried! Face it, nobody gives a hoot about Canada, we’re pretty much known as that cold country above the USA. I don’t really follow politics at all, & I don’t vote. I’m not telling you who to vote for, I’m saying I’d vote for Hillary Clinton ASAP! If Trump is elected, I’ll suggest to Justin Trudeau that Canada should build a wall at our southern border & make the USA pay for it? Remember Trump, you’re “…really rich…”

You’ve probably never heard of “Kyuss” unless you’re a huge fan of “Queens of the Stone Age” or “Foo Fighters”. “Kyuss? Was Josh Homme’s group before he started “Queens….”. If you watched the ‘Sonic Highways’ mini series Foo Fighters have a song called “Outside”. “Kyuss” practiced in the middle of the desert out side of L.A. because they were too loud to rehearse in a house, to close to neighbours.

I use both. I don’t understand or care to understand how anybody can be just on facebook? Why do you need an email for an email with limitations? Not everybody’s on facebook? Very few people send a private message on facebook. Yes, social media has it’s place. Most of the info on this blog is from facebook, that being said I could likely get all of this info by subscribing to 30+ newsletters. I assume the only problem with that is that they would all come at the end of the day, then you’d be getting yesterdays music/pop culture news. I guess all I’m trying to say is email vs. facebook isn’t a contest, they both have pros & cons.

I don’t like this 2nd version of “Blown Wide Open”. I prefer his original version with Big Wreck from 1997. He ruined his own song?

I Mother Earth shared this. This album was released 20 years ago.

I never really got into Nine Inch Nails. When I hear, it doesn’t bother me, then I think to myself “Why were they so successful in the ’90s? I don’t know, they’re alright”.
