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

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

I exercised to “Alice in Chains” a Greatest Hits compilation


Nobody has ever said that I’m a burden or high maintenance.  I put a TON of pressure on myself.  Why?  I always have, throughout school I didn’t want to disappoint my teachers or family members.  Now I don’t want to disappoint these people, this group of people, everyone for that matter, & myself included.  That’s probably a BIG part of my depression.  When I have an off day, like when I’m too tired to exercise or don’t feel too great after I exercise, I get pretty down on myself.  All of that stress & pressure is self-inflicted.  I know it’s messed up, but that’s always been normal to me.

When I quit university, I felt like a failure.  Nobody said anything to make me feel that way, it was just how I felt & I never dumped my emotions on ANYONE!  I went from grade 8 to grade 12 getting a class pin every year, maintaining an 80% average or higher every year.  To drop out of university was devastating to me.  Very unexpected to me, maybe not to others?

My exercises this week have been really good “so far…”  I’m very happy & VERY sweaty with them every day.  Much better mood this week also!

Real life is starting to get back in my life, which is both good & disappointing.  More visits with people in the outside world but that also means the possibility of less exercise.


Don’t upset the hard core comic fans!  I don’t consider myself one of them, & I don’t have any comic books.  They seem like a group that could turn on creators fast.  I do feel a bit cheated after the plot of “Spider-man Far From Home” though.

This seems very subjective as well.  Some people like a fast/tough guitar solo, which can be great!  Others prefer a simple guitar solo like Nirvana’s guitar solo in Smells like Teen Spirit, it’s the melody as a solo.  As long as it serves the song I’m good either way.


YAY!!!!!!!!!!!  Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

This is why Tool fans have been complaining other than the 13 year wait.


I like this album.  It not my favourite by Soundgarden, but I like it.  Some hard core Soundgarden fans were really disappointed when it was released though.


POSSIBLE LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Foo Fighters – Everlong live at a couple of festivals across the pond!

I would have to agree.  Pearl Jam’s first album “Ten” is now a classic album, has been for quite a while in my eyes & ears!


I don’t think being opposed to any specific type of movie is wrong.  However, there’s no need to voice your same opinion each time one is released, like 23 in total.



All I have of theirs is a greatest hits album.  Before my time so a greatest hits will do just fine for me.  Most of you probably know them.  Watch the movie “Forrest Gump” or most movies involving a war, you’ll probably hear the song “Fortunate Son”…

4 day exercise total; 400 pushups, 300 tricep pushups, 200 back flexes, 240 squats, 400 leg lifts, 200 crunches.

I fell asleep to “Coheed & Cambria” the album “The Unheavenly Creatures”

I exercised to “Foo Fighters” the album “Wasting Light”



The thing I forget to do is stretch before my exercises.  I’ll start doing my exercise, then stop everything & stretch.  That’s a regular part of my routine, unfortunately walking isn’t.  If I had kept up with my walking, using a walker on my own wouldn’t be out of the question right now, I think?

Once I’m done my exercises on Fridays, my work week is over.  I work 1 ½ hour ASAP.  I’ll do some stuff around the house, I’ll make sure Brewster’s bowls are full, have my breakfast, shower, then hit the couch, sometimes with a coffee or usually with a full liter of water.

Fridays & Saturdays or special occasions are the only evenings I have alcohol.  2 or 3 on each evening.  The sugar in the alcohol usually makes me get up quite early.  The last time I had a hangover would have been before I got sick, 2007 or early in January of 2008.


What kind of world is this???  I don’t care if you’re a democrat, republican, white, black, brown, gay, transgender, straight, male, female, etc.  Are you a respectful human?  If so the USA could use your help in the White House.  Things are getting spooky south of us.

We certainly don’t need more guns in the world, but if you own a 3D printer & look on the dark web, I hear you can create one.  At this point the USA needs to ban semi-automatic guns & now 3D printers.  Thanks technology for creating printable guns, drones & robots or sex robots that I hear you can set to kill you, etc.  Anybody else think technology has gone too far now?


Well, Making a Murderer, wasn’t on Netflix last Friday.  I hear it’s coming on Friday, October 19th, according to Netflix.



So Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath is amazed that Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones is still alive.  Goes to show that just because you listen/play metal music doesn’t mean you’re an addict.  Hahahahaha!  Metallica & Dave Mustaine of Megadeth & Lamb of God are all sober too.


Guess who’s playing drums & singing?  I’ll give you a hint, it rhymes with rave roll!  Good luck finding this album.  I bought it on CD the day it came out, it’s now out of print & not on any digital music service.


Ah, crap!  Just when you think “Lethal Weapon” is in the clear this happens!


New video from “Halestorm”


Reminder for November 2nd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


This is beyond weird.  How does a rap group take home “Best pop/rock duo”?

What does Corey Taylor (vocalist for Slipknot & Stone Sour) think about the music industry, regarding rock & metal music?


800,000,000 iTunes users vs. 50,000,000 Apple Music users.  That calms me down a bit.



“Live” has a 5 song EP out today called “Local 717”.  All of the original members back together, & it sounds much better, more like the album “Secret Samadhi”



I only own one greatest hits album of theirs on CD, which are now packed up in boxes.  If it’s an older band I’m good with only a greatest hits album.  I do own all of the “Led Zeppelin”, “The Beatles”, “Pink Floyd”, “Rush”, “The Beastie Boys”, and more.  Anyways here are a few songs….
