I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the album “Concrete & Gold” followed by “Lamb of God/Burn the Priest” the album “Legion XX”

Woke up at 5:30 am & listened to “Dead Sara” the debut self-titled album.  I did my exercises in silence too early for music.  I ate breakfast to “Metallica” the album “Ride the Lightning”

 

I didn’t exercise on Wednesday since I had a doctor appointment at the cancer clinic, so only a 4 day weekly exercise total; 960 pushups, 800 leg lifts, 400 crunches, 400 squats, 440 tricep pushups, & 160 back flexes.

The tricep exercise went from 100 to 120 Thursday & Today.

What the doctors told me on Friday & every time prior to that really humbles me.  This talk of me being a “hero”, “miracle”, “best patient”, etc. used to go straight to my head & inflate my ego.  Not anymore.  I prefer to stay quiet & humble.  Sure my body survived brain cancer.  I’m thankful for that & happy to be alive.  How did my body survive?  All I did was sleep 23 hours a day for a year.  My BODY survived cancer.

I survived & immediately pissed everyone off with my words.  Once you read them, you can’t unread them.  Thanks for forgiving me, I don’t forgive me!  I HATE that I became that person at the time, I wish I could forget it.

I don’t hold onto a grudge with anyone, except myself.  I’ll beat myself up over the smallest thing, just to take a lesson on what not to do.

I’m only 38, but I’ll remember every mistake that changed my life & remind myself not to do whatever it was in that situation.

 

The President can call other countries “shithole countries” & keeps his job.  Roseanne Barr sends out 1 racist tweet & her show is immediately cancelled.  This is a really messed up world.  No, I’m not defending either of them.

What happened to freedom of speech?  Is it now just for Donald Trump?  I don’t like what Roseanne said or whatever comes out of Trumps yap.  Why does the multiple time offender get to keep his job, the onetime offender lose her job?

I don’t agree with either statement but at the moment they have freedom of speech, I don’t have to like what they say but they’re both using their right, even if utter stupidity comes out.

iPOD

My dad & I agree on a lot of music.  I grew up on my parents’ music & I’ve exposed them to some of my music.  My dad’s iPod had died, so we took mine with some new music I introduced him to & stuff I grew up listening to.  Of course we listened to some “Queens of the Stone Age” & “Royal Blood” on the way to Calgary for the show.  Music I put on since he might be interested…

 

NOTHING BUT THIEVES

PARAMORE

 

On the way back we played music he introduced me to.  All of this is on my iPod!

 

ELTON JOHN

 

DIRE STRAITS (Love over Gold & Communiqué)

I’d post more but “Dire Straits” songs can be quite long.  I really like the song “Telegraph Road” but it is over 14 minutes long, skip it if you like.

 

Hahahaha!  Finger Eleven shared a video from when they were called “Rainbow Butt Monkeys”

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

I exercised to “Foo Fighters” the album “Concrete & Gold”

Emptied the dishwasher to “Dire Straits” the album “Brothers in Arms”

 

Kim calls me the human iPod.  My father & my brother are much the same.  When I was in the WRC & had exercise therapy, the radio was always on.  Somebody would ask our therapist “Who is this on the radio?”  Our therapist would ask me.  I’d respond with “Oh, that’s so & so.”  Once the message was delivered, I’d wait for 10 seconds & here the person’s reply to me.  “You weren’t even born yet!  How do you know that?”  I’ve got far too much useless trivia in my head!

 

Kim’s birthday on October 22nd 2002 (the year we started dating).  The Foo Fighters album “One by One” was released.  I bought 2 copies, 1 for me & 1 for Kim.  I also bought her a media stand to hold her CDs & electronics.

 

 

Kim’s much more involved with the fact that I’m alive at the moment.  From the instant of Tuesday, February 5th 2008, she was with me 24/7 until I was discharged on Thursday, July 26th 2012.  When she leaves for work in the morning, Brewster & I both miss her A LOT!

It’s 6 years from my leaving WRC & I miss her SO much each day.  Brewster starts to whine at me & the front door at 5:30 pm as if he’s saying “Is she coming back?”  When she gets home, all 11 pounds of Brewster nearly knocks her over!

I’m INCREDIBLY lucky to have her as my wife, she has incredible emotional strength & will power.  Guess what she told my parents on Tuesday, February 5th, 2008?  “He’s not going to die”.

 

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

 

The weekend update is changing to a specific topic each week.  There’s not much music news on a Saturday.  There may be a story or 2 at the end?

Nothing like complaining from a small rock/metal/blues band that has to be on social media for recognition!

No new music coming my way until October 20th.  Kim’s birthday is October 22nd.  Lucky girl!  On the 20th I have a new Trivium album preordered & on the 27th I have Kelly Clarkson preordered!

 

Chester Bennington will have a tribute concert from his bandmates of Linkin Park.

I fell asleep to “Pearl Jam” the album “Ten”, followed by their album “Vitalogy” work up to pee & fell asleep to their album “VS”

I exercised to “Dire Straits” their “Sultans of Swing” greatest hits album.

Weekly exercise total; 1300 crunches, 150 pushups, & 40 back flexes

So in addition to my exercise, I’m now playing “bass” with Corey, his idea to help me out.  We’re choosing easier songs until my left hand is up to speed.  I get very frustrated trying to play guitar.  Before when I learned, I picked it up learned the notes and basic chords & I was good enough to sing & play in front of an audience.  I never really practiced it.  This week I’ve spent at least half an hour to 1 hour practicing.  It’s a love/hate thing for.  I like doing it, but I hate having to practice something I used to do for fun.  My brain knows what to do, my left hand doesn’t seem to care though.

I’m not playing an actual bass, I’m playing the bass line to the song until my fingers get stronger for actual bass strings.  That’s how I taught myself to play real guitar.  I learned bass lines on acoustic guitar to teach Rob how to play actual bass in University.

After posting on Wednesday, I grabbed my guitar again.  Managed to finally “train” my fingers into playing power chords & a few actual chords.  The change of fingering the chords is slow, but I’m sure it will come eventually.

I was getting a bit down but with Corey’s brilliant idea, me being able to do some of my exercises, & baseball starting soon, I’m in a much better mood.  Great call by Corey noticing I was a little stuck.

We’re learning one song at a time.  Corey & I are Foo Fighters fans.  I figured since we both know the song “Learn to Fly” & it’s pretty easy we’ll start there.  I don’t think Corey has ever sang but he said he’s willing to try.  He asked me, a long time ago if I could teach him.  I don’t know what I’d say other than repetition.  I was terrible when I started, but the more I did it, the better I got at it.  I’m pretty sure being in choir in high school helped.

 

This director is more known for action movies such as “Paycheck”, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”, “Transformers”, etc.  I’m slightly skeptical about him directing a movie about El Chapo

http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/news/michael-bay-in-talks-to-direct-hunting-el-chapo-movie-w474033

 

I was listening to a sports talk show Thursday night.  I’m glad I’m not the only one that thinks the Blue Jays are set up for disaster in LF & 1B.  If this is what they’re sticking with everything else needs to be perfect!

Kim’s back is still causing her to be quite immobile.  She called & got an appointment with her chiropractor this afternoon.  She was laying on the laminate floor yesterday, with a wedge pillow under her knees, & an extra strength Tylenol.  Hopefully things get better after the chiropractor?

Sherry & James have been really good to us!  They kept Brewster for 3.5 years while I was sick & rehabilitating.  Now that I’m unable to drive, Sherry picking up our groceries & taking her sister to a chiropractor appointment today.  James is my computer guy & a flat out metal fan!  Sherry is there in a heartbeat for us if needed!

I shower after my exercise.  I stepped on our scale just to see if I had lost any weight, not necessarily my goal more of a byproduct from my exercise of being able to walk again.  The weight’s coming of slowly, but I guess that’s better than nothing.  Essentially I should be in the range of 215-220.  Right now I’m down to 233 from 265.  I was 260 when I went into the hospital.  The difference is that most of my fat went straight to my belly.  Before I was sick, I wore jeans with a 38” waist now I’m not sure what my waist is but I did have to wear a 40” waist a couple of months ago.

Not how I’d like to have the Blue Jays enter the playoffs, better than not at all I guess?  One game in Toronto against Baltimore on Tuesday.  Winner moves on, loser is done for the year.  If they had played better in April, nobody would have to wait on pins & needles for the last game of the regular season?  Instead of 11W-15L, I don’t think 13W-13L would have been out of the question?

 

Most hard rock & metal from the 1980s wasn’t ever my thing.  I was born in 1980, & that wasn’t the music I was exposed to.

http://loudwire.com/top-hard-rock-metal-albums-1980s/

 

I really like “The Agonist” new album “Five”

 

Friday seems “So Far Away” from me what with a new “Alter Bridge” album being released.

http://thesludgelord.blogspot.ca/2016/10/album-review-alter-bridge-last-hero.html?m=1

 

“Pearl Jam” at the 1993 MTV awards

Whenever I see something like this I think to myself “If civilians didn’t carry guns, would the police pull they’re gun out?  Probably if the perpetrator had a knife.  Would they shoot if not needed?  Wait were you there, do you know exactly what took place?”

If you think the police will shoot you, don’t call them & don’t cause any harm to anyone, why are you somewhere the police are needed, pretty simple?

 

I never got into “Nine Inch Nails” or any “industrial metal” for that matter

http://loudwire.com/trent-reznor-atticus-ross-scoring-boston-marathon-bombing-film-patriots-day/

 

The “Alter Bridge” album that’s released on Friday should be right up my alley!!!!!!!

 

I like Norah Jones somewhat.

New music in the future for “Econoline Crush”?  I hope so!

“Things are afoot in the ECONOLINE CRUSH camp. We have found a company and people with a strong belief in this band. New material is imminent. More news in the following days and weeks. Thanks for being so supportive of our band.” – Econoline Crush’s Facebook status!

 

November 18th has “Highly Suspect” releasing their 2nd album, as well as “Metallica” releasing “Hardwired………………….to Self-Destruct”

BRAIN CANCER vs. ALS

I’d do more but that’s a TON of links to load. Sorry if they double, I’ll try to fix them but no guarantee? My back is annoying but I increase my exercise to my “normal” total daily!

I fell asleep to 2 albums, the 2 most recent albums by “Candlebox” first “Love Stories & Other Musings” from 2012. Then the album “Disappearing in Airports” released in April of 2016. Woke up in the middle of the night to pee, gotta stop that, & put on “Chevelle” the new album “The North Corridor”

I exercised to “Portal” the album “Blood Red Tape” My brother was listening to them in his car when we were with him. I think he said they’re an independent group from Alberta?

They have 3 albums on iTunes at the moment. This is the only one I’ve purchased so far.

Brain cancer & ALS aren’t a competition. This is how I look at it though, in my situation. I could have survived or died because of brain cancer. I don’t know much about ALS. From what I know, it ends poorly, to put it lightly. Surviving brain cancer I can work on things, everything. You can look at that as overwhelming or just start somewhere & chip away at it as long as you can. ALS, from what I know, is more of a “OH MY GOODNESS! What’s going to go first?” Once it’s gone you can’t really do anything about it, that would be terrifying to me! Sure I felt overwhelmed & angry at first, but I’m alive, I can work on myself, mentally & physically. Eventually it COULD be fine? Sure the odds are stacked against me. Do you gamble? The odds are stacked against anyone in a casino playing any game. I’m alive, it could be worse.

I have to admit, after 2 weeks of just stretching & resting my back, it’s difficult to get back into my routine of exercise, food, blog, TV. For years that was easy, sweaty, but easy & somewhat gratifying. I had never enjoyed exercising, especially cardio! I can ride an exercise bike forever, walking with my walker seems like too much effort for very little gain to me. When I lived at my parents place the recumbent exercise bike was in the basement. I’d pop in a “Lord of the Rings” movie & pedal for 3 hours no problem, I can still bike for an hour or more.

I get that musicians want to share what influenced them by doing a cover song. I loved playing cover songs live! That meant I didn’t have to write lyrics, just remember better lyrics. Foo Fighters do this for the majority of their B Sides on singles. You get a single from the album, a live song & either a cover song or a song that was cut from the album. Here are some original songs followed by their cover song by someone else. Some are good, some are OK, some are terrible, & some are “OK, why mess with a classic?”

Almost forgot about this one!

^^All of this is just off the top of my head!

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY TO THE AMERICANS/OUR NEIGHBOURS TO THE SOUTH

And happy “Sharknado: The 4th Awakens”. I wish I was joking, but I’m not. It should be on whatever science fiction channel you have on July 31st?

I fell asleep to“Pentatonix” their self titled debut album of original material. They have 3 previous shorter albums of cover songs.

I exercised to “Bad Religion” about 20 of 22 songs from the album “All Ages”, then about 5 songs from the album “Under the Table & Dreaming” by the “Dave Matthews Band”, then 2 songs from “Dire Straits” the album “Love Over Gold”

I procrastinated a bit by listening to “Foo Fighters” album “Sonic Highways”

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?

Upcoming bands we need to know about? I think I’ve shared this before as well? Sorry if I have?

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

Best Dave Grohl drumming moments 1985-2015

Dave Grohl released the album “Foo Fighters” 21 years ago today in 1995. He recorded the album by himself on every song, one portion of a guitar part was recorded by someone else.

http://loudwire.com/foo-fighters-self-titled-album-anniversary/

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/features/foo-fighters-19951005 Both articles are quite interesting!

Easily my favourite song on this album!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Below……

I hope this “Alter Bridge” recently signing with a new record company, “Napalm Records”, doesn’t delay the already recorded 5th studio album?

Ah, well played Soundgarden…..

THE NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE

 

I first tried to fall asleep to “Dream Theater” the self titled album. Only about half of the album, I then switched to “Crowded House” the self titled album for 3 or 4 songs. I finally settled on all songs by “Chevelle”

I exercised to “Fine Young Cannibals” the album “The Raw & The Cooked”, then a portion of “Dire Straits” the album “Brother in Arms”

MORE BASEBALL TOMORROW AFTERNOON! SHORT POST TOMORROW!!!

I watch some sports. Mostly Toronto Blue Jays baseball & the Canadian Football League. Never the NFL/National Football League, the NBA/National Basketball League & very little NHL/National Hockey League. The NHL, for me, has gone on a steady decline since the mid ’90s when the New Jersey Devils created the neutral zone trap, a fancy word for a style of defense. Ever since that time & whatever commissioner Gary Bettman has done to the game, just sucks. It’s all about fist fighting and really hard body checking. I think I could count on one hand, maybe 2, the amount of periods of NHL I’ve watched since the recent strike/lockout. Parts of games, never an entire game.

They’re doing this shoot out thing now after 1 period of overtime. I don’t get that at all, it’s just like watching the skills competition at the All-Star break. If they did the same thing in baseball it would be like the home run derby the day before the All-Star game. 1 pitcher, 1 back catcher & pick 3 or 4 hitters from the other team. No defense at all. If it’s not a home run, it’s a strike. 3 batters in the top & bottom of one inning. Now that would be BORING!!

I miss hockey from the 1980s & the 1990s. Play however many sudden death periods of overtime until someone scores. Sure it takes longer, but that’s more exciting to me. Maybe the game goes until midnight, oh well? If a professional athlete is making $100,000-$12,000,000 a year they should earn their paycheck. Overtime isn’t an everyday occurrence in the NHL. Tie games in baseball don’t happen during the regular season or the playoffs they play until someone wins!

And that’s why I don’t watch much hockey at all. Most of the NHL I watch is because it’s on a TV at a bar or restaurant right in front of my face.

I felt like yesterday should have been Friday, probably because I’ve been doing more exercise.

Yes, we didn’t go walking this. We’re both tired at the end of the day. So we’ve made a schedule to go walking twice a week, & for me to use the recumbent exercise bike for 45 minutes or more once a week. The squats make a huge difference though. I’ve been doing those all week.

Pre-order on this Friday. Album release April 29th.

A time laps video of my father’s company setting up their display at the “Spring Home & Garden Show” ‘ONAV’ is the company’s name. Pretty much anything electronic, security system, flat screen TVs, home theaters, any wiring, etc. As my dad says “Your money, & our time, we can do anything”

Really, Sea World, just figured this out?

If Donald Trump is elected President of the USA, I could almost guarantee a WWIII. Somebody will say something he doesn’t like & he’ll immediately hit the red button. I don’t vote in Canada for anything, but if I could vote as a USA citizen, it certainly wouldn’t be a vote for Trump.
