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

5 day exercise total; 1,500 crunches, 900 leg lifts, 200 squats, 00 back flexes, 0 pushups, 800 curls, 00 tricep lifts, 200 shoulder raises. Stretching & even more YOGA.

I fell asleep to “Nothing but Thieves” the album “Broken Machine”

I exercised to “The Darkness” the album “Last of our Kind”


THIS IS WRITTEN IN REGINA, SASKATCHEWAN, CANADA. SOMEHOW THE MAP LOCATION WAS MOVED?
More yoga this week than ever, gets my triceps really good that why I didn’t do any with my weights. I do weights, yoga, & other intense stretches every Tuesday & Thursday. Yes, I fall, I still have no physical balance. I use a chair, table, or wall to balance myself when doing certain yoga poses. So far when I fall I’m just strong enough to fall with a bit of grace & haven’t seriously hurt myself. My back was bugging me Monday, I rested it, put some ice on it & did my squats on Wednesday & Today.
Wake up, have breakfast, exercise, shower, eat lunch, check my computer Monday & one of the guitars I chose is “no longer available”? It wasn’t even the “Limited Edition” guitar? The 7 string Epiphone remains, the PRS I originally chose was a 2018 and more than $1000 less. I do not own a 7 string guitar or a PRS guitar, which sound very nice. Gotta pick one & hope it will happen. Yes, I book marked them so I can stare at them & call them both “My precious”!
It’s been decided 1 PRS next year. Same guitar as featured below, different year, better price! I hope there’s a 7 string around in 10 years, heck, I hope I’m still alive & relatively healthy in 10 years! Now, to start saving! Is this a mid-life crisis purchase? I hope I live to be 80 or more! If I make it to 80 or not this is my mid-life crisis purchase. I can’t drive, so it’s a very nice guitar! This is a LARGE purchase for me, a onetime deal for sure!

Kim gave me the OK for a reasonable PRS next year, so here’s hoping! Gotta start saving my pennies now! Thanks to Tim Roth at Long & McQuade for helping me in my search for the guitar I wanted!
I used to be able to play all the way through Foo Fighters’ 1997 album “The Colour and The Shape” on guitar, most of the 3rd album, all of the acoustic double album, & other songs in the mix, before cancer.



This one is available now & I’ll start saving for it ASAP. I’ll have to special order it in a burnt amber burst colour. This is a mid-life crisis purchase for me!

https://www.long-mcquade.com/22227/Guitars/Electric_Guitars/Gibson/Matt_Heafy_Les_Paul_Custom_7_String_Electric_Guitar.htm?ref=suggestive-search

This was in the running but lost out, maybe someday, if they’re still around…& if I win the lottery…..I guess I should consider playing the lottery? Less expensive also. Go big or go home, once! Matt Heafy is the singer for “Trivium” metal music is fast & difficult for me on guitar, I’ll get there eventually for now 6 strings are enough to work with. It is the same guitar he plays in this video & on tour.


My priorities are Kim, Brewster, our family & friends, etc. Kim has different priorities, I guess?
Kim’s dental bill is payed off thanks to her father for helping out, she waited a long time for that (almost 24 years). She used her birthday money towards Brewster’s Vet bill. I thought I’d use my money for other things in the future, save it for a rainy day. She insisted that I use it towards a guitar! For me this is not only a mid-life crisis purchase & a nice work dealing with the cancer situation so far. It’s also a part of getting my old life back while improving it.
Kim works at a job she likes for decent pay. I exercise daily & try to recover while living on disability checks & Canadian pension plan checks that when added together don’t amount to anything above the poverty line. We tend to live in & out of debt. This is why luxuries are usually out of the question.
My Saskatchewan Roughrider season ticket is already paid for this year, so I’ll be at the game Saturday afternoon, & the home playoff game, which is paid along with the season tickets the previous December. That right there is $1000 a year + food & beverage. $6 for a watered down pop is as equally atrocious as a $9 generic beer. I refuse to spend $9 for a beer I can buy a 12 pack for $18 at the liquor store. I rarely drink beer other than a new flavour of craft beer. I usually have a pop & some popcorn or just chew gum to keep my mouth moist at the game, my pills give me dry mouth. I can pause the game here on TV and save on the cost of food & beverage.
A plus is to be able to just watch the game. Now it’s ‘Come for all of this extra stuff, & there’s a football game too’ I’m not a kid anymore, lights & games don’t do the trick anymore. More than I want & prices went up for the new stadium a few years ago, they’re not coming down.
I never watch live TV, EVER! “Oh, the game started? Thanks Kim, I’ll start it in ½ an hour”. Everything we watch is recorded. We’ll watch it when we have time. We’re busier than usual “around here”. No commercials that way.

My priority is to get better, sooner than later! Other than that, I shouldn’t NEED anything, it’s just stuff I WANT. Big difference between NEED & WANT! This guitar purchase will be a slap on the back as if to say “Hey, you’re doing alright. You gotta keep going, there’s a long road ahead still”. One day I’d like to find an online part time mundane job to do 4 hours a day/5 days a week, so I have time to exercise still.
Well whether this is settled or not. Please buy my house & I’ll love you long time…unless you’re not into that, then the safe word is sauerkraut & we can just cuddle in our PJs, eat popcorn, & watch movies. You’re the boss though, this is just a suggestion, nothing more.

I think this would have more to do with the style of music a person listens to. Biasedly though, I didn’t even know other bands had logos.

WEEKLY EXERCISE TOTAL/THE ARROGANT WORMS

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

5 day exercise total; 600 leg lifts, 450 crunches, 450 squats, 300 back flexes, 400 curls, 100 tricep lifts w/ weights,  yoga, & stretching.

Tuesdays & Thursdays are stretching, yoga, & weights.  In that order.  Both of those days, I do more sets on my left/weaker arm.

I fell asleep to “Counting Crows” the album “August & Everything After”, followed by “Trivium” the album “The Sin & the Sentence”

I exercised to “Travelling Wilburys” the only album they released S/T

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I may have very little muscle improvement that is visual, other than a drop in weight.  I am much stronger though.  This is an extension of my physiotherapy.  If they thought I needed to be there still, I would be.  There are some people who could be there for life.  There were people there before me who are likely still there.  I was in the Wascana Rehabilitation Center from 2009-Thursday, July 26th 2012.  Before that was Tuesday, Feb. 5th 2008 in the Pasqua Hospital.

It was a lot like being in a bunker for 4 ½ years.  Not a ton of contact with people, which was fair, they have their lives outside of my world.  When I was released from the WRC, it was pretty much “a whole new world” on the outside.  Even know we’ll go to an area of town & I’ll be asking Kim, “When did that building pop up here?”  Multiple times.

I exercise because I have to.  Over time it’s become normal for me & something I just get up & do.  I didn’t like it in the beginning & now it’s just something I do, & feel better after it.  Throughout the day I stick to fruits, vegetables, 2 eggs, chicken, turkey, or fish.  Supper is whatever Kim feels like having, which is usually quite healthy also.

As for the weights I’ve switched to, I use a 10 pound weight for curls & a 5 pound weight for my triceps & other exercises.  I think in the very near future I’ll use a 20 pound & a 10 pound weight?

 

We need “Rage Against the Machine” to come back now, more than ever!

I hear there are some American basketball fans that really don’t like that the Toronto Raptors were in the championship round of the NBA.  Why?  In the 90s there were American teams in the Canadian Football League.  Hockey is considered a Canadian sport yet the majority of the teams are American in the NHL.  The Toronto Blue Jays won the World Series in 1992 & 1993 & the Canadian flag was upside down for one of the games, so they dealt with being shamed by Americans.  Worst of all basketball was invented by a Canadian gym teacher, James Naismith.

Now that the Raptors have won the championship, I’m assuming they’ll receive more belly aching?  I still have no interest in watching the game since I don’t understand it or have the desire to learn about it.  Kim has made me watch 6 minutes of basketball over the course of the last 2 games.  I haven’t watched any basketball in the last 27 years of my life.  I’m just not a fan.  I know many people enjoy it though!  Congratulations to the Toronto Raptors!

Sum 41 released a 2nd video/song from their upcoming album in July.

 

I use preorders on iTunes, easier to wake up & find that you have a new album other than making a note with the date of the release, that you might not look at.

FANTASTIC way to celebrate your 13th birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m a BIG fan of Alter Bridge, I do find this to be rather subjective.

https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/articles/features/best_bands_that_rose_to_fame_in_the_last_15_years_alter_bridge-91890?fbclid=IwAR2EUgiThzM5SnYtfBVUbzMKUPFgmpgobZ8iMYKQfnoXXL7ILHmzSRtZU3M

Also subjective.  I’ve liked all of the “In Flames” albums.  The new album is AWESOME!  Who has the right to judge any art though?  You could ask 100 people & get 100 different answers.  It’s not the judges on “American Idol”, “The Voice”, or “America’s Got Talent” or any other talent contest.

Over the last 7-10 years, In Flames fans have been complaining about them not being as heavy as their previous albums.  Everybody’s entitled to their own opinion.  They made some really good rock/metal albums during that time.  That’s my opinion, not anybody else’.

Lamb of God added a song to Spotify from an album released in 2009.  That’s why I don’t use Spotify.  I don’t use music streaming sites at all.  This is my issue with Spotify only (other than it’s a streaming site).

 

THE ARROGANT WORMS (OLD & LIKELY NOT POLITICALLY CORRECT)

They’re what I would call a novelty act.  Every home Saskatchewan Roughrider game you will get up & stretch with “Work Safety Bob” between the 3rd & 4th quarter to “The Last Saskatchewan Pirate”.  Like I said, they’re more of a novelty/comedic group, but some of those songs will get stuck in your head, so beware!

5 day exercise total; 400 pushups, 300 tricep pushups, 300 back flexes, 360 squats, 600 leg lifts, 300 crunches.

I fell asleep to “Dead Sara” both albums followed by the EP “Temporary Things Taking up Space”

I exercised to “Sandbox” the album “Bionic”

Yes, the singer is Bubbles from the Canadian TV show “Trailer Park Boys” the guy with the glasses

 

Monday was tough after 9 days off.  Oddly, it got much easier as the week progressed?  That was a pleasant surprise.  I could have just sat here & complained about a boring life, done nothing when I was released from my cancer rehabilitation.  Instead I chose to try & get myself as close to what I was before cancer.

Remember that whatever is going on in your life you almost always have a choice.  The path of least resistance was not for me.  “Yeah, let’s make it as difficult as possible” – idiot/me

After almost 5 ½ years, I’m finally seeing some muscle, not much but some.  After watching all of that www.youtube.com stuff on exercising, I can tell you it’s a flat out LIE!  If it was true, I’d have been quite muscular 4 or 5 years ago!  Watch a www.youtube.com video & try to replicate it, doesn’t work in my case!

 

Today is the day!!!!  “Bohemian Rhapsody” is in theaters today!!!!!  I don’t like joining a crowd.  I’ll see it next week or sometime shortly after that!

Everybody knew ‘grunge’ had its moment but Marilyn Manson in its place now?  I’ve heard a few songs of his, they’re not what you might think they might sound like.  They were album tracks & they were mostly orchestral music.

Dream Theater is releasing their 14th album in February!  Great, the 34 song double album “The Astonishing” was far from what I/fans expected & knew they could do better!

COUNTING CROWS

I own 2 of their albums that I bought on CD in the 1990s.  I actually bought 5 studio albums & a double album of them live.  I’m good with only the first 2 studio albums though.  I really don’t know about this band so here’s what http://www.google.com tells me.  They formed in Berkley, California in 1991.  Their first big album was released in 1993 & their 2nd album was released in 1996.  When I got their 2nd album that was all I listened to for 2-3 weeks.  Their most recent studio album was released in 2014.

 

1993     AUGUST & EVERYTHING AFTER

 

1996     RECOVERING THE SATELLITES

I won’t be doing my exercises until Tuesday, Canada’s Thanksgiving is on Monday.  I just need to do some stretching.  Kim went to work today for the first time this week.  She’s probably still a bit sore but she can stand up straight now.  My joints & muscles are sore from doing my exercises & trying to do everything else that Kim does “around here”.  That’s the only reason I’m taking it easy.  Kim was trying to be “Supergirl” before her back went out, & I was trying to be “Wonderboy” when her back went out?

IT SURE FEELS LIKE FRIDAY, YET IT’S NOT……………..OH DE PLUF!

 

I fell asleep to “Dream Theater” the self-titled album from 2013.  They have released 2 since then & a pile more before that.

 

I exercised to “Counting Crows” the album “Recovering the Satellites”

This is the album with “Mr. Jones”.  I bought these two & 3 other ones that did nothing for me, except the live album I own

I was feeling nostalgic the other day & played these 2 albums on my iPod

Pearl Jam’s “Backspacer” was released 7 years ago.  Most casual fans had mixed emotions, I’m a casual fan of Pearl Jam it was VERY radio friendly & VERY calm.  I like this album, they’ve released other albums that are very calm & don’t work for me.  I have all of their albums on CD, the most recent one from iTunes & I really like their music, I just forget there’s more than the album “V.S.” & “Yield”

 

Big Wreck shared it……

 

I missed a bit of this, interesting though.  Seems like documentary makers are trying to cash in on the Netflix series “Making a Murderer” might as well strike while it’s hot!

DAY LIGHT SAVINGS TIME

I fell asleep to “Soundgarden” the album “Badmotorfinger” after most of “In Flames” album “Soundtrack to your Escape” then the first album of the double album of “The Beatles” album “The White” album

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

The 3rd album containing the first mistake they made, in my opinion. Most Foo Fighters fans love this song & sing along to it. I think last year was the first time I’ve seen them not play since the release of this album in November of ’99.

^^That’s Dave Grohl’s mother that flips him the middle finger at the beginning. He had to teach her how to do it, from what I heard at the time.

Here’s the deal. If I have to shave my face, the top of my head will be bald also, if not the beard comes back. My hair is down to ¼ or ½ inch, being completely bald isn’t that far away! Those are now the rules, shaving sucks or blows, whatever is worse!

APPLE

I fell asleep to “Dream Theater” the album “The Astonishing”

I exercised first to “Counting Crows” the album “Recovering the Satellites”

Apple shares are going down & Microsoft shares are going up. However an Apple share is double of a Microsoft share.

“No matter what you dream, you can do it” – a bio-pic about Steve Jobs played by Ashton Kutcher, a marketer for Apple said the quote above. I’ve been told this by my parents my entire life & it’s really good advice.

I think Apple as company stopped this way of thinking when Steve Jobs passed? The companies stock is on a downward slope at the moment, probably because they continue to aggravate their customers, likely a large percentage of the world. Face it, you own at least one thing made by Apple. An iPod, iPhone, iPad, an iMac. Mac laptop or desk top, or iTunes is on most computers. I’m not a fan of Apple, but I have an iPod & use iTunes at least twice a week, renting a movie or checking out an album. “No matter what you dream, you can do it”, unless it’s a 160gb iPod classic. Which will be replaced with a more expensive iPod touch with less memory, but additional features most people have or don’t want. I guess Steve Wozniak isn’t the thinker like his good friend Steve Jobs was? I’m not calling Mr. Wozniak stupid at all! I’m saying he doesn’t think the way that Steve Jobs did. Steve Wozniak is great at creating technological advancements, just not at marketing or listening to what consumers want/need.

It’s sort of like dangling a donut in front of anyone “You want it? Here it is!!!! No, now you can’t have it”. If I was tech savvy I’d do it myself, but unfortunately I’m not.
