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

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

Like I said we didn’t do much on Friday evening.  At the age of 38 that’s pretty common for us.  We sat on the couch & rented “Lady Bird” from iTunes.  “Dave Matthews Band” song “Crash Into Me” was in it a few times, forgot how much I enjoy “DMB”.  The movie was OK, might have been better if I hadn’t heard so much buzz about it?

The kids seem to be outplaying the veterans.  2019 & 2020 are the last 2 years of the $20,000,000 a year contract for Troy Tulowitzki.  I’d like to pay out his contract for $30,000,000 next year just to go away.  There’s already 4 younger/cheaper players in the minor league system waiting to take over at Short-Stop.  They play again today on TV, next Saturday, 2 more spring training games in Montreal, then a 4 game series against the New York Yankees in Toronto to open the season.  They’re playing many other games before the regular season starts, these are just the televised games.

Saturday, Kim went grocery shopping since I was watching pre-season baseball.  Instead of groceries, she came back with 4 blu-rays I had asked for to use my birthday money on & order through www.amazon.ca!  We ended up watching “Thor: Ragnarok” easily the best “Thor” movie of the 3 for me.

Watched the movie & we were in bed between 9:30 & 10:00 pm

Got up today watched “Saturday Night Live” & “Tanked”, then off to visit some friends, yes, I was wearing shorts as usual.  Picked up Brewster, grabbed some groceries & Kim’s BBQing steaks for supper!

 

 

https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/parkland-florida-school-shooting-gun-control-debate-nra-washington-w517618  I hope so!

The American government wants to make schools safe.  Florida has already changed it’s gun laws.  That’s great that the kids are changing things in schools.  What happens if you’re at a concert, movie, mall, or anywhere else?  America has had mass shootings at all of these locations.  A shooting could happen anywhere?  I hope what they’ve done in Florida becomes a Federal law?

So they’re having issues with the “Alexa” device from Amazon?  Who saw that coming?  Everyone!  New technology not working properly.  Biggest complaint was that it laughs maniacally at random or just stops responding.

Do we really need a device like this?

What about A.I. robots?

Makes the movie “Weird Science” not look so weird!

Guess what?  Nobody worried about this stuff in the 1980s!

Most fans have nothing but praise for “Alter Bridge’s” second album “Blackbird”.  I’m a big fan of “Alter Bridge” but that album is my least favourite of their 5 studio albums.

http://loudwire.com/alter-bridge-albums-ranked/

I’m still dealing with the same issue from Apple/iTunes, dad said he’d try something different for me (wiring stuff for me).  An issue a lot of people would scoff at but it’s causing me WAY to much stress & frustration, heck it started sometime in October.  I surrender (sort of).  Some albums load the songs, some don’t, & some albums load the songs but they’re out of order.  All of this is very random.  If it doesn’t work over the stereo, it’s fine on my iPod or computer!  It’s weird & my TV freezes when you first use the Apple TV.  4 or 5 months is ridiculous & the guy that was helping me with this at first, no longer calls me & doesn’t return my calls or emails!?

 

Myles Kennedy.

He just released his solo album first solo album.  If you’re expecting it to be a hard rock album, keep looking.  10 songs that are acoustic.  He had an album of hard rock songs & left it for possible “Alter Bridge” albums or something different later.  This guy could sing the old phone books & I’d go to a show of his, Alter Bridge, or his first group “The Mayfield Four”.  I saw “The Mayfield Four” once.  They were in Regina & they opened for “The Watchmen”, & headliner “Big Wreck” in 1999 or 2000.  He also sang inaudible backing vocals on “Big Wreck’s” 2nd album.  His solo album is titled “Year of the Tiger”, his father died in 1974 which was the “Year of the Tiger.  Here’s a bit of his other projects & his solo album…

Sorry but I desperately want to kick my sciatic nerve and get “Physical”.  I wake up, get ready for the day, have breakfast, & then it’s usually around 8:30 am & my day is done for the most part other than trying surprise Kim with something.

No, I don’t surprise her very often?  She deserves it though.  I was so close to being paralyzed at first.  I was the corps in a bag (Hoyer lift) with Kim.  I had a bigger wheelchair initially since I was around 275lbs.  I’m a large person.  I’m 6’1” and around 235 pounds.  Still some weight to go, 215 pounds should be pretty close to what I should be at.  I have no intent in stopping my exercise until I’m able to do most things!  You heard it here first!  My goal from the day I was conscious was to be able to walk or I’m gonna die trying!

 

How on earth do you put together a greatest hits album of Bryan Adams without “Cuts like a Knife”?  I think iTunes made me go shopping when I bought it.

http://loudwire.com/rancid-dropkick-murphys-2017-north-american-co-headlining-tour/

Old song, sorry.

 

I may have sang in multiple rock bands, but I wasn’t anything to write home about.  I was more of “the best of what’s around”.  I was good enough.  I had spent 3 years in the high school choir, but I had to change my register from singing low bass to a tenor voice or else I was headed in the direction of sounding like Scott Stapp of “Creed”.  I got my first guitar for my 21 birthday that was a tremendous boost of confidence for me, something to hide behind.  I heard 2 good things said about my voice.

Yes, we played Creed in my first band.  Remember this was in 2001.  The first thing I heard was that a friend of our drummer thought I had been replaced as the singer.  A few months before I got sick, I was singing in my brother’s group.  Our bass player went to the piano to figure out what note I had hit in a new song we were working on.  High C#.  I knew it was near the top of my range, but that was way up there.  I remember seeing a contestant on ‘American Idol’ hit the same note full voice.  Other than that, I’d never survive on ‘American Idol’.

 

Music is what keeps me going!  I started singing in a cover band in University back in 1999 or probably 2000?  I was far more nervous than before I learned guitar after my birthday in 2001.  In total we learned around 35 cover songs, & 7 original songs.  I wrote 3 & our guitar player wrote 4.  I managed to memorize all of the lyrics to the songs we were preforming.  I’ll leave you with 3 or 4 at the end here every day.

We played this at punk speed, just the first verse.  Very quick version!

Don’t feel as though you have to click on every link.

I played baseball from 1984-1997.  When I watch baseball I understand what is going on in each players head.  Every player is considering what the pitch will be, the defense is thinking about what they’ll do when the ball is hit & where they need to be.  So I get that it’s boring for many people.  I admit I wasn’t the smartest player on the team but I tried to keep track of everything that was going on.  It’s a thinking game, then a quick reaction to what’s happening with every pitch.

I played on 2 teams in 1997 High School team & a city league team, mostly at 3B.  I couldn’t hit water if I fell out of a boat.  It’s reassuring to know what the coaches were thinking on my way to the ball park.  “Chris playing 3B batting 9th”.  Very good to know where I’d be for 98% of the time for 2 years.  I did throw my arm out the last year (1997).  When I saw that my boss at the Delta Hotel, & later on a paper supplier were looking for players on the company softball team.  I jumped at the chance to join.  I miss it, so I watch almost every Blue Jays game on TV.  If I don’t see the game because we’re out, I record it & if it’s done I’ll watch Blue Jays in :30.  If we’re going to my parents cabin for a few days or elsewhere I’ll record all of the Blue Jays in: 30 while we’re gone.

I miss being in a rock band also.  I’ve been in 2 or 3.  I was always the singer & rhythm guitar player.  I only sang because I was “The Best of what’s Around”.  I certainly don’t miss gathering my gear, every bass & guitar (3-7 of them), & taking them home at 2:00 am though.  Now I just listen to a TON of music.  Eventually I’ll be playing my guitar it just won’t be on a stage at a bar.

I’ll probably will never play catch again with any type of ball, let alone a baseball.  I’ll never play live music again either.  I can sit around here at some point though & play my guitar though!  Things changed immediately when I came out of a coma.  Maybe as much as everyone changes or maybe more?  Change isn’t necessarily a bad thing!  I highly suggest not changing anything because of cancer, cause WOW, that came out of nowhere for me…………………….BAZINGA!

Those were changes for me & it took me a while to get over the fact that I wouldn’t be able to do them.  I was in the Rehabilitation Center at the time so it took me maybe 2 or 3 years to get over it, but I did.  Along with figuring out how to do other things a different way.  The world doesn’t always change to fit your needs, you have to figure out how you’ll adapt to the world & keep up with everyone else.

I was thinking to myself the other day. I must have been “The Best of What’s Around” for a third baseman when I played baseball. If you’re a back catcher, 2nd baseman, short stop or center fielder, hitting is a bonus, defense is usually the priority at those positions. If you’re plying any spot other then the ones mentioned or pitcher, you had better be able to hit. I couldn’t hit at all. Every game though I’d show up & look at the lineup for the game & 99% of the time it was Chris Fraser batting 9th, playing 3B.

I don’t know how good I was, but I wasn’t ever afraid of the ball. If the ball was hit in my direction, I’d attack it, like I was taught to. As long as it didn’t get passed me I was satisfied! I don’t remember ever diving for a ball, I did throw to 1B on the run though.

Knowing who was at bat always helped, more so knowing their batting tendencies & where the ball would be hit. I remember the lead off hitter for the Moose Jaw team would almost always hit a ground ball to me. Usually it was a guaranteed out. Bounce 2 or 3 times, smother the ball & toss him out at first base, roughly 127′ away.

I know exactly why people get bored watching baseball. It’s a physical reaction every pitch to the chess game going on in a players head. Everybody on defense has somewhere to be no matter where the ball is hit. When a hitter comes to the plate, you should be thinking of 8-10 different possibilities, and they change with each pitch.

The hitter & runner are thinking through different scenarios as well with each pitch. When I sit down to watch a ball game, I think along with the players. That’s why I watch as much Blue Jays baseball as possible!

He could at least record a live set of 40-55 minutes?

Remember most of this is just about me bombing around in a wheelchair, currently t the age of 36, I had stage 4 brain cancer at the age of 28 & I’ve been in a wheelchair since Tuesday, February 5th 2008, & I listen to a pile of music & I have played baseball from the age of 4-17 then I quit because my arm said I had to! Stupid arm!

I know there are people out there that have a much larger music collection than I do. I backed up my iTunes files the other day & I currently own 1180 albums on my iTunes + roughly 300/600 CDs I have yet to put on iTunes.

The majority of info on here is mostly stuff I’m interested in, there’s a lot more info out there that I’m not necessarily interested in. I urge you to look for info you’re interested in &/or let me know what you’d like to see here more & if there’s an artist or group I should know about? Feedback is always welcome!

The rest of our Sunday consisted with butternut squash soup for supper, along with Kim & I watching recorded “Shark Week” shows on our PVR. I think we have 2 or 3 to go still?

Scott Ian on the progress of the new Anthrax album.

It’s going to be tough to follow this album. I thought this album & “Vengeance Falls” by Trivium were 2 of the best recently released metal albums.

I think I’m done with Slayer? They’re wearing a little thin on me. After one album or a bit less I get a little bored of them.

I like some Coldplay, mostly their first 2 albums & the odd song here & there.

Flavor Flav was more than a little weird to begin with. You knew he’d pop up in the news at some point.

Any Spider man movie would be better than the 3rd one with Toby McGuire & Topher Grace. Those movies started off well and got a little “Campy” with each sequel for me

I learned these 2 songs by Green Day & they had the exact same chord pattern just different timing.
