I fell asleep to “Nothing but Thieves” the 2nd album “Broken Machine.”   Kim even likes some of their stuff!  We were in the car the other day & she says “Hey play that ‘Sorry’ song”

I exercised to “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “Villains”

 

You’re probably tired of hearing people talk about the mass shooting in Vegas last weekend.  Howie Mandel was a guest on The Ellen Degeneres Show on Tuesday.  They both talked about many issues in the world, saying that we all need to respect & help each other, not just in the face of tragedy, but as much as possible, which makes a whole lot of sense when you think about it.  Be proactive instead of being reactive.  Look at what has happened in the last 2 weeks!  3 terrible hurricanes & a mass shooting.  Yes, we were reactive & donated to the Red Cross.  Kim donated through work, they will match every dollar by 50 cents.  Got me thinking if I could, I’d always think of donating blood like I used to.  Now, after cancer I’m not allowed to donate blood or donate my organs.

I always say to myself “Hope for the best & prepare for the worst!”  Somewhere along the way I forgot that.  The hurricanes & mass shooting were/are HUGE catastrophes that most people wouldn’t expect or necessarily think of.  That’s sort of a good thing.  You don’t want to live your life in fear!  Howie Mandel spoke very well as a guest discussing the shooting.  To sum it up he basically said ‘We need to stop talking about gun control & maybe focus on mental health issues more.’  If you like to go hunting, I’m OK with that, as long as you’re not hunting humans or domestic animals.  We have guns in Canada, few people use them to kill others though.  Canada’s not perfect, however there’s not a breaking news story every week on TV.

What Howie Mandel said was needed, it’s time to change our perspective on these mass shootings.  We all keep barking up the same tree, & we always get the same answer, & it’s not helping to solve the problem.

I found it!  Here’s Howie Mandel’s view on these mass shootings

Conan O’Brien’s take on the Vegas shooting

Last night was our “niece’s” 4th birthday good times had by all!  BBQ ribs & chicken wings, fruit tray, veggie tray, pierogi’s, etc.  Then dessert ice cream & fancy toppings.  After the baking on the weekend & ice cream last night, I should be good for my sugar intake for a while, & here comes Canadian Thanksgiving!

 

THAT’S ALL FOR WHAT’S ON MY MIND & CANCER TALK!  HERE COMES THE POPCULTURE STUFF! 

 

The more I listen to the Foo Fighters “Concrete & Gold” album, the more I like it.  I just don’t care for the last song on it, “Concrete & Gold” the rest is quite good!

 

ROYAL BLOOD

“Royal Blood” is not a metal band!  They’re a rock act made of 2 guys from England.  A bassist who sings, & a drummer who I assume sings background vocals.  I got to see them open for Foo Fighters in 2015 in Calgary for the “Sonic Highways” tour.  This album cycle they are opening for “Queens of the Stone Age”.

Before seeing them open for Foo Fighters, I never thought I’d get to see them live.  I’m so glad I did.  They released their 2nd album earlier this year. Titled “How did we get so dark?”  The first album I really like, & the 2nd album keeps the train moving in the right direction!  I still think this first video from the new album is really cool!

There’s 3 of the 10 songs from the new album.  Here’s a couple from the first album.

LANGUAGE I DON’T HEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Going about my day on Monday as usual.  Then I caught my eye on the news of Tom Petty passing away at a young age of 66.  First the mass shooting in Vegas & now this.  Trying to think of which Tom Petty song is my favourite.  I couldn’t choose one, they’re all AWESOME!

This all came out of nowhere for me.  Here’s Rolling Stone with Tom Petty’s top 10 live songs.

What do I want for Christmas?  The relief of feeling OK without having this sciatic nerve pain.  I’ve had more than enough of this thing.  I get up & sometimes it’s this excruciating pain, & other times it’s as though it’s not there at all.  Pick one or the other please & just go with it.  The Jekyll & Hyde thing is not cool.  Be consistent please.  At least let me know what it’s going to feel like when I stand up?

 

I prefer an album that’s around 50 minutes long.  Eps just leave me wanting more.

I do prefer the Tool EP MUCH more than their following full length album “Undertow”, I’m a rarity in this discussion though.

3 Chiropractor appointments & 1 massage therapy session on my lower back, right butt cheek, & right leg.  The 3rd trip to my Chiropractor really helped!!  Only problem was the muscles would tighten up overnight.  I’d like to do some mild exercise but it hurts even when I transfer to my wheelchair.  Friday will be all stretching.  Actually, I’ll just continue to stretch until it’s gone.  “Right now” it’s just annoying.  I’ll stand up, have a brief pain & try not to do much.  It only hurts when I move.  Sitting or laying down on my left side or on my back, I’m fine.  Seems like my body just gave up on me.  I’ve decided to take it easy for the month.

I’ve never really been to a massage therapist.  My cousin is a massage therapist though, out of province though.  I was getting up to put my shirt on & ended up breaking the massage table.  I felt like an idiot, snapped the face hole right off.  She said it wasn’t a big deal.  She’ll get a new table from amazon.  Of course we’re going to pay the $20 for it, I just felt so bad.  Lesson learned “Do not put any weight on that part of the table”!

Without doing any exercise it gets EXTREMELY boring for me.  It makes for a very long day.

This just got me riled up!

Yes, we covered this song.  I love this song!!!!!

Happy, happy, joy, joy it’s finally here.  If you follow politics or not you’re likely tired of the 16 yearlong campaign in America.  I don’t like politics, so I’m really glad it’s finally Election Day in the USA.  Just wait, in 3 weeks they’ll start a campaign for 2024.  I hope America has made their decision & are voting today.  I don’t vote here in Canada, but if I could I’d vote in America for this election.  I don’t think America is the greatest country in the world, they are probably the most powerful country in the world though.  “With great power comes great responsibility”

I’d have to agree with Louis on this one!!!!!!

OK America.  Your neighbors to the North are watching & judging you, don’t screw this up?  Forget “Who let the dogs out?”  How about “How did you let Trump get this far?”

Well, I guess that’s it for Taylor Field at Mosaic Stadium.  Saturday evening was the last football game at the stadium.  I didn’t go.  My aunt & uncle were in town, & I gave my uncle my ticket.  The organization had a lot of extra stuff going on before & after the.  On just a regular game, I can’t even have a water or pop.  No washrooms near me & I’m there about 1 hour before game time & roughly 1 hour after game time.  That’s roughly 5 hours of not having any fluids to avoid using any wheelchair washroom.  Kim & I watched the game at my parents’ house with my mom, aunt, grandparents, & Mitch & Rachel.  In the new stadium for the 2017 season, getting to a washroom should be quicker & easier for me.

It was a rather short visit with my aunt & from Alberta, but it’s always a good visit even if my aunt didn’t bring pierogi’s for me aka her favourite nephew!  She’ll never admit that, but we all know!

I was a little sore Thursday & Friday after finishing my exercises.  My lower back & shoulders were more annoying than sore.  This week should be better no that my body has done that much before.

 

I woke up Saturday morning & wasn’t ready to get out of bed.  I put the “Sorceress” album by “Opeth” on my iPod, finally gave it a good listen.  I liked it before, but I realized that morning that it’s incredible!!!  Diverse, weird, without any death metal vocals.  “Opeth” are a group that do a mellow/clean vocal album, then a totally different all death metal album.  The last 4 albums have been quite mellow yet intense.  I always notice something in the background that I missed on the previous listen.

 

 

“Foo Fighters” are on hiatus & want to do something weird when they return.  “Foo Fighters” should make a Christmas album, no one would see that coming…………..if I hadn’t just said it?

“Give me some mistletoe & I’ll kiss you” I’m not sure if that would work?

 

 

I remember the first time Corey McDonald played “Big Wreck” their 2nd album “The Pleasure & The Greed” on his new speakers.  I had listened to that album at least 50-100 times.  He put it on his stereo (back when us old people had music on things called CDs & one would cost $25).  I didn’t even recognize the opening guitar riff to the album it sounded so new & different.  I always hear something different in the background on a “Big Wreck” album.  From what I can tell from their Facebook page, the possibility of a new album in 2016 is quite realistic.

I fell asleep to “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “….like clockwork”.  Guess who played drums on this album?  The name rhymes with Rave Roll?

I exercised to “A. D.D.” the album “Core” then “Alice in Chains” their Greatest Hits” the songs before singer, Layne Staley, died from a heroin overdose.

I remember Chris Messer telling me that the band I was with in university, should play “Man in the Box” my voice hadn’t completely changed from being a bass singer in high school yet.  The song was pretty difficult for me.

I exercise daily because I have to if I want to walk again.  I miss it when I’m supposed to be relaxing.  The part I really like about it is my rotation of T-Shirts that fit has grown!  Seems as though each week I can add another shirt into the mix.  This week started off with the addition of 3 T-Shirts.  That’s my wardrobe, concert T-Shirts & mostly shorts.

I really don’t like the heat!  Our windows face south so it’s always warm in here.  Even if the blinds are closed, even in the winter, it can get up to 89F or 28C.  Far too warm for me!  In the summer I can turn on the air conditioner to keep it at 22C.  In the winter I’m hooped?  I don’t even turn on the heat.  I did last winter & it kicked in 3 times, the rest of the winter it was really “hot in herre” even when I left the door open.  The heat from the sun kept it at a more than balmy 89F, 31C.  If we were going out I’d keep my shorts & T-Shirt on & bring my jacket with me.  I don’t wear my winter jacket much, usually a bunny hug/hoodie.  If you’re from Saskatchewan you know what a bunny hug is, if you’re anywhere else & say that, people look at you like you’re absolutely crazy!  That or on occasion in other Canadian provinces someone will say “So, you’re from Saskatchewan I assume?”

“Dear friends, as you know I play very few shows, in an attempt to remedy this I’m playing a show this weekend (Saturday) at the cathedral social hall (formerly the freehouse) with my homies Mitch Fraser and J.D. Lemire. Shows starts at 9 and there is no cover so if you’re feeling like an outing and some live local music come on by! We’ll be playing some of my own music and some acoustic renditions of room333 songs.”

 

 

Hahahahaha!  Donald Trump!  He won’t EVER live this down

“It’s on www.youtube.com but don’t you dare promote it!”  OK, I’m not a fan of “Korn” anyways.

Sure, there are people out there driving differently than you. I’ve been told not to waste my time & energy & I always ask myself first “Will this matter in 20 years?”. The answer is NO! 99.99% of the time, so it’s quite rare that I get angry about stuff.

If I’m a passenger in someone’s vehicle, why are you ranting & raving to me about the so called idiot driving near us? I can’t fix it? Talk to them tell them how you’d like them to drive. What’s the point of getting angry at me & why do I need to hear it? Are you willing to take driving suggestions from them? If not, your passengers don’t need to hear you having a hissy fit over someone that cut you off, drives too fast or too slow, etc. What the heck did I do & why are you complaining to me? I CAN’T FIX IT!!! FIGURE IT OUT, I DON’T NEED /WANT TO HEAR IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

10 songs Led Zeppelin ripped off. I like Led Zeppelin, I just came across this, like everything on this site. It’s a good thing Led Zeppelin made these bands famous, or else I would never have heard of them?

This is my favourite by far. The link was freezing on me. You should be able to play each one if it’s working for you?

New artist from one of you followers. I like it, but it’s one of those things I’d buy & never listen to?

Sorry, only available at live shows. He’s from Chicago.

I guess if you purchase a physical CD of “The North Corridor” by Chevelle on July 8th it should be signed by the group.

REALLY? Two unheard songs purchased on eBay on analog tape.

Live again LANGUAGE Dave Grohl, “Learn to Fly” acoustic

Consequence of Sound’s “Netflix & Chill” segment

I’ve given up on this show. The first 2 seasons were really good, third season was very underwhelming, watched the first episode of the 4th season & packed it in on the “Orange is the New Black”

Remember this site is only my interpretation of things. I urge you to “dig” deep & find something you like. It’s a very subjective thing, the arts. This is on an album titled “Dig”

The verdict on Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” trial is in.
