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

AFTER THIS POST, YOU’RE ON YOUR OWN UNTIL NEXT WEEKEND!  I DON’T KNOW HOW PEOPLE WITH CELL PHONES DON’T NEED A BREAK AFTER CHECKING THEIR PHONE ON AVERAGE 2,617 TIMES A DAY????  I NEED A BRAKE & MY DAD & I ARE GOING ON A ROAD TRIP LATER ON THIS WEEK.

http://www.businessinsider.com/dscout-research-people-touch-cell-phones-2617-times-a-day-2016-7

Don’t know if that’s true, but that’s what www.google.com told me!

My mother canceled a Mother’s Day supper.  Well she postponed it until the following Sunday when more family is in town & my parents wanted to get the backyard ready for summer.  I’ll at least call her.

I watched & recorded “The Ellen Degeneres Show” on a different channel on Friday, thinking that it would still record on the same channel it always does.  Nope, it didn’t record, Kim missed it, my bad.

Kim went to bed around 8:30 or so, her allergies, like most people, are affecting her.  Poor Kim, I don’t even like to see her with a cold & she had to watch me with cancer.

Saturday Kim went to take photos of our friends who just had their 2nd child.  She got home & we went to check out the Sobey’s liquor store in the South end of town.  She brought me home & went grocery shopping.  She put the groceries away while I zipped through the baseball game.  After that we had supper.  I watched “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” while Kim decided to bail & clean the kitchen.

Good movie but of course filled with LANGUAGE & RATED-R!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mostly laundry left to do today, make a juice, & some cleaning.  Kim started the laundry Saturday night.  Oh, how our life is SO entertaining!  I guess that’s what happens in your upper 30s!

 

THE TRAGICALLY HIP

Canada’s most iconic rock band.  I was a very casual fan that owned 4 CDs out their many, many albums.  I’m not an expert on them, but I’m guess 50% of Canadians at least know who they are & likely have at least 7 or 8 albums if not all of them?  They did a final tour, that truly was a final tour.  The singer, Gord Downie, had terminal brain cancer.  CBC aired the final show all across Canada.  On the upside, they left their mark on Canadian culture.  Here’s a few songs I own on the 4 CDs I have in order of release….

 

UP TO HERE   1989

 

FULLY COMPLETELY    1992

 

DAY FOR NIGHT   1994

 

TROUBLE AT THE HENHOUSE       1996

5 albums & their upcoming release dates that I’m anticipating.

May 18th, Lamb of God/Burn the Priest – Legion XX

June 8th, Tremonti – A Dying Machine, and Dead Sara EP.

June 15th, Chromeo – Head over Heals

July 6th, Devin Townsend Project – Ocean Machine (Live album)

 

This is well done a funk cover of Metallica’s “Enter Sandman”

I fell asleep to “Nothing but Thieves” the album “Broken Machine”, followed by “Soundgarden” the album “Live on 1-5”

I exercised to “Foo Fighters” the album “There is Nothing Left to Lose”

Weekly exercise total; 1,200 pushups, 1,000 leg lifts, 500 crunches, 460 squats,  375 tricep pushups, & 200 back flexes.  Every day when I exercise I strive for it to be “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger”

Yeah, I was messing with the numbers again.

I put a lot of pressure on myself all of the time.  I wasn’t like that before cancer really.  When I was working I figured I’d better do the best I can since I’m being paid.  Same with being in a band.  People are paying to see our group play, they deserve to get the best show possible for however much they paid.  Even if it was a benefit show/fundraiser, they paid so let’s do this really well.

I never thought that about most other things, other than playing baseball.  That I actually practiced, with the team & on my own time.  “Dad would you please come hit some ground balls at me?”  “Could we go to the batting cages?”  “Can you toss some balls at my left hip, so I can practice hitting them into the back stop?”  I’d take off on my bike to throw a tennis ball in the area of where the ground would meet a wall & field it whether it was a ground ball or a fly ball.

High school was more of a “Meh, A-, good enough”.  I never really figured out how to study.  I just managed to go through school doing good enough, except university.  I’d study & read & still got poor results.

In SIAST/technical school, I just told myself to do things better.  I read the books & practiced the stuff I was about to be tested on.  I found it easier to do hands on stuff & figure out how to make it work.  I needed to do things hands on.  Reading a book is great, but I needed to experience what I was reading about.

MUSIANS & OTHER ARTISTS DO THEIR CRAFT REGARDING WHAT THEY KNOW OR HAVE EXPERIENCED!  IF THIS VIDEO OFFENDS YOU GREAT, IT SHOULD WATCH IT & FIGURE OUT WHAT YOU CAN DO TO PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING!

 

MATTHEW GOOD BAND

Another Canadian band.  Based in B.C.  I’ve got 6 albums & a single.  You really only need the final 3 albums that were BIG hits in Canada.  I have no clue how Canadian bands faired outside of Canada?  3 albums from 1997-2001 according to iTunes.  I thought the first album was released earlier, but we’ll go with 1997.  A group I wish would reunite, but I’m sure they won’t.  I don’t want to stir the pot, but I heard whispers that there was some animosity among a few members of the group?  Matthew Good went on to release a few solo albums after the group broke up.  I wasn’t big on them but I got the first 2 solo albums.  Here are 2 tracks from the 3 albums with the band & a song from each solo album I own………………..

I fell asleep to “The Agonist” the new album “Five” followed by roughly ½ of “Collective Soul” the album “Disciplined Breakdown”

I exercised to “The Beatles/Cirque de Soleil/Dancing with the Stars”

Kim’s home today, her back is still quite sore.  It’s good to have her here, just not under these circumstances.  My body totally did not want to exercise today, but I did it anyways, while Kim was on the floor icing her back & watching “Dancing with the Stars”.  At least it was “Cirque de Soleil” The Beatles music version?

 

I woke up Monday morning thinking “AHHHHH, it’s Friday!  Crap it’s Monday”.  It really happened that fast.  I was happy for 1 second & sad the next, oh well!  I’m feeling good despite a nasty cold going round & I’m starting to actually enjoy doing my exercise.  Yeah, I’m turning into one of those people?!?!  I sleep less because I don’t want to start “Wasting Light”.  “Get up and be awesome” as our throw pillow says!

 

Didn’t everyone sort of forget about “Evanescense”?

“Soundgarden” wrote one song that confused fans.  Oh, my.  “Holy “Black Sabbath” Batman!”-Robin

 

Why change it now?  It was just as racist when they named the franchise, along with many other sport franchises, even recent expansion sport teams.

http://www.rollingstone.com/sports/washington-redskins-trademark-appeal-denied-by-supreme-court-w443144

If they change the name of this team, they will have many more to change.  Chicago Blackhawks, Cleveland Indians, Ottawa Red Blacks, Florida Panthers, Carolina Panthers, Atlanta Braves, Cleveland Browns, & probably more that I can’t think of?  As a Canadian should I be offended by Vancouver Canucks, Toronto Maple Leafs, or Montreal Canadians?  Why not have a protest when they were naming these teams?

HAPPY HUMP DAY (sort of), I’M BETTER

I fell asleep to a few songs by “Stitched Up Heart” the album “Never Alone” then changed it to “Trivium” the album “Silence in the Snow”

I exercised to “Alice in Chains” half of the album “Facelift” then “Chromeo” half of the album “White Women”, then finally “Finger Eleven” most of the album “Five Crooked Lines”

Finally! Nothing hurt this morning. I raised my squats total today, hopefully I can achieve that total tomorrow.

Nobody likes feeling sick, neither do I! I don’t have time to be sick! Just a waste of a day for me!

Yes, I squeezed in a small exercise session, just not as many repetitions, sorry, I don’t remember what I was listening to on the stereo? Probably the “Stitched Up Heart” album?

I was watching the “Batman vs. Superman” movie & this is a dark movie. This isn’t just any stand alone Superman or Batman movie. I haven’t seen the “Kill Bill” or “Sin City” movies. This is by far the darkest comic book movie I’ve seen. Henry Cavill plays the role of Superman again, his parents are the same, Amy Adams is back also. I don’t recommend it for anyone under 18. I’d say it’s a Rated R movie, well the “Ultimate Edition” is, the non theatrical version I bought which also has the theatrical version. I like it, but that’s just me. It was slammed by critics, & wasn’t rated as a good movie by others on iTunes. I like it though. I’d give it 81% tomatoes on iTunes. You can rent it on July 19th. This is the “Ultimate Edition” trailer

It’s not hump day for Canadians, it’s only a 4 day week here. Friday, July 1st is Canada Day. I’m not checking but I think Canada is turning 149 or 150 this year?

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…”

BASEBALL, THEN YOUR POP CULTURE & MUSIC NEWS

I tried to fall asleep to “Muse” the album “Drones” then settled on “Anthrax” the album “For All Kings”

I exercised to “Chromeo” the album “White Women”

It’s almost time for the regular season & I’m more than ready for it!!! It’s like a really long Christmas for me!!!

The Blue Jays are handling the contracts of Jose Bautista & Edwin Encarnacion the right way I think (79 home runs last year between the 2). See where they are in the standings at the trade deadline or a week before (July 31st ), pick one if the team is doing well, try to sign a reasonable contract, trade the other. Or let them both test the free agent market & see what they’re worth. Not sure if that’s the plan but I know they haven’t been offered a contract.

Now that’s “electric”!!!!

I’m done, here’s your pop culture news!

I’m worried that Donald Trump even has a sniff at being elected as the next President.

Does this mean Canada & South America will be gated communities? AWESOME!!!!!

Fair enough. I like superhero movies there’s 4 I plan on purchasing on blu-ray this year already! Star Wars, Batman vs. Superman, Deadpool, Captain America:The Civil War, & who knows what else. I have some room on my shelf of movies & TV series. Star Wars is out on April 5th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

MUSIC NEWS

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Chromeo”. Yes, I had a dance party & I used my transfer pole. Went to take my shirt off & I got that look from Brewster “What you talkin about Willis?” and the EVERYTHING stayed on. There was no sexy dance party here.

 

It doesn’t feel like Christmas yet. There’s little to no snow on the ground, our place is consistently at +24-+26 celsius although the heater never cuts in since it’s set to +22 celsius. If it’s dark until 9:00 am-5:00 pm, it should be cooler in here? I hate the heat! Anything over +23 celsius, I’m not a happy camper………WAIT……….POLAR VORTEX……………WE CAN BE FRIENDS!

Drum off Dave Grohl vs. Animal!

Big Wreck was playing this song, on stage, in Saskatoon at Edgefest 1999. I decided to jump in the mosh pit, then a body came flying at me, while holding another crowd surfer, he or she landed on my face. I left Edgefest when it was over with a broken nose & blood all over me.

Today I was listening to the same song while folding laundry, & didn’t break any bone or cartilage! 16 years & I’m still a bad ass!

 

I like Mark Tremonti, but it is VERY subjective. The award should be renamed the most popular guitarist.

Songs I like, “Walk off the Earth” had to pass on “The Verve Pipe” & “Volbeat”. Not a fan of “Volbeat” I got 3 albums from iTunes & they got old quick. “The Verve Pipe” I have because I had to learn one song, I haven’t really listened to the entire album.
