I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” a concert in Montreal from 2000 that I recorded on cassette since it was on the radio.  “Melissa Auf Der Maur” her album “Auf Der Maur”, “Metallica” the recent album “Hardwired……to Self-Destruct”, “Paramore” the album “After Laughter”

I exercised to “Halestorm” the album “Into the Wild Life”

I just couldn’t fall asleep last night, but I was awake & exercising by 6:10 am, had breakfast, shaved, showered, & done editing this

Exercise total this week; 500 crunches, 500 leg lifts, 300 pushups, 200 back flexes, & 25 minutes of planking!  Every day starts with me exercising, no shower, dress in workout attire, & no breakfast.  Once I finish my exercises, then I allow myself to have breakfast, shower, put on clean clothes, & usually in this room to work on the next blog.

Wednesday was 5 years of me being released from the WRC.  No more therapy for this guy.  It was sort of bitter sweet for me, I met some really cool people, but I likely won’t see them in person again.  People I’d see almost daily for 3.5 years.  It’s like when I passed out at work, another big change.  I did make it back to visit my former co-workers though, once.

As I’ve stated before, I don’t consider myself as physically disabled.  Sure there are many things I can’t do, many that I can, & some that I haven’t figured out yet.  If I need help with something, there is always someone willing to help.  Until I say I can’t do something, let me struggle until I figure it out, or until I ask for help.  Don’t be afraid to let me “…sink so I can swim…”  The further away I get from Tuesday February 5th 2008 & Thursday July 26th 2012 they become a distant memory that changed things a little bit.  I could continue to have a chip on my shoulder or much better, forget about it & move on.  I’ll easily choose the latter.

 

THAT’S ALL FOR THE CANCER TALK FOR NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

These are the 5 songs from the Foo Fighters’ album “Concrete & Gold” out on September 15th

The following are live songs.  They likely include LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would think any hard core Foo Fighters fan, such as myself, will be fine with the album & won’t hesitate when it’s released!

 

Carpool Karaoke

Would you like a Stone Temple Pilots bundle of vinyl, CDs, & a T-Shirt?

My super smart brother converted some old cassettes to iTunes files for me.  The high school Chamber Choir cassette that we went to Newfoundland had recorded a cassette of songs.  A Foo Fighters concert I recorded from the radio in 2000, & he tried to convert a cassette by Johnny Amore from my high school days.

 

If people are so terrified, they can avoid this tasty treat.  I’m not worried, bring on the Ben & Jerry’s!

What does Trump have to do to be impeached?  There can’t be much left?  Where there’s smoke, there’s probably fire.  There’s so much smoke at the moment, I can’t believe I haven’t died of smoke inhalation here in Canada?????????????!!!!!

REALLY?!  I MEAN REALLY?!!!!!!!!!!????????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I could easily do an entire post about Donald Trump going back on his own previous statements.  I don’t need to though.  Everybody has made up their mind on him, & I’m not going to waste my time or energy on him.  I think ALL of us should consider ourselves as Global Citizens & get rid of these dividing walls!  I’m not surprised by anything Trump does at this point, but I’m always extremely disappointed that he does whatever he wants.

 

Cool version of Aerosmith/Run DMC’s ‘Walk this way’

 

Alter Bridge shared it……

 

Pentatonix shared it & I’ll add another one from the same EP that I’m not sure about.

 

How Foo Fighters’ went about recording the new album “Concrete & Gold”.  To be released September 15th, 2017.

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/features/dave-grohl-on-how-foo-fighters-made-new-lp-with-pop-producer-w494257

 

Every person has a different opinion & I respectfully disagree with the comparison to Disturbed & Five Finger Death Punch.

I’m not in my early 20s anymore.  I have 2 Disturbed albums in the closet behind me.  My brother saw Five Finger Death Punch before cancer, B.C., he burnt copies for me.  I have no clue where they are, & I’m more than happy about that.  They were cool for a week when I was 26 or 27.

Those 2 bands among many others are why I don’t listen to Regina’s “rock” radio station.  I do love Trivium though, they’re too heavy for the “rock” radio station.

 

Hahahaha!!!!

 

My weekend starts now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My mother is in the hospital, or has been all week.  She had a knee replacement.  Once it’s healed, the surgeon will do the other knee in about 3 or 4 months.

Brewster will not be left alone here.  He has really bad anxiety even if we’re here during a rain/thunder storm, he’s high maintenance.  Other than that, we would visit mom in the hospital.  She was discharged Thursday evening.

 

If you’re here for the update news, that’s all I have for you today. 

 

Seems that lately everything offends everyone???????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  WHY??????????  Some stuff is better to be left alone.  How does a photo of a guy sitting on a chair backwards bother people???  I don’t think Social Media was meant for people to whine & complain about the tiniest little thing they find?  Have you ever sat in a chair backwards?  If so, that offends me since you’re complaining about Justin Trudeau sitting backwards in a chair!  Let’s get over every insignificant thing & maybe focus on the important stuff????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Sure, this is about music, it can mean nothing to one person & everything to the next person, I get that.

Even if you think this is just a music blog, this “music blog” actually means A LOT to me!

 

Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoy the Star Wars franchise.  I don’t own any collectable toys still in the original packaging or anything like that, but maybe I should?

The Toronto Blue Jays might get into the playoffs but I don’t see them making it to the World Series.  This is a team that relies too much on home runs.  52% of their runs scored are through home runs.  Many of the home runs are solo home runs.  It might look impressive when a hitter hits a ball 500 feet, but with no one on base it only counts for 1 run.

 

Walk off the Earth are releasing a movie??????

 

Would you ever speak publically or privately as Trump has & continues to do so?  If you have a child would you approve of his language?  Some people voted for him, so I guess they approve, why?  I’ll never understand.

I’m usually not a political person, especially here in Canada!  I’m fairly ignorant when it comes to politics.  However I do know the difference between right & wrong.  I watch a TON of CNN lately.  It’s a bad car crash I can’t look away from.

 

Gotta say it’s been a good/needed break for both of us!

I fell asleep to “Fine Young Cannibals” the album “The Raw & The Cooked”

I exercised to “Muse” the album “Black Holes & Revelations”

Well the A/C died Sunday night.  Someone was here to look at it around 10 or 10:30 am Monday & got it going.  He says he’ll have to return & replace some stuff to our suite this week.  He’s going to speak with the building manager.  As for Monday, I don’t think it will cool down fast enough for me to exercise or do my full routine.

I got the entire exercise routine in!  It just took a while to cool down in here!

Kim & I plan to take a break this summer.  Last year she took some time off, & ended up working/preparing for a work thing.  I laid around on the couch.  We might take a week & go to the cabin or somewhere within driving distance, we can’t afford to fly anywhere.

What I’m worried about is that neither of us know how to really relax.  Especially me, I know I have a ton of things to work on ahead of me, yet I feel guilty when I’m not working on something & I’m somewhat limited as to what I can do in a wheelchair.

How far along are Guns n’ Roses regarding writing new material?

http://loudwire.com/guns-n-roses-assembling-ideas-possible-fifth-studio-album/

 

So, here’s what I know about Foo Fighters.  We’ve got this FANTASTIC single but no album even mentioned.  Last week or 2 weeks ago I saw a clip of them playing in Europe.   Dave Grohl said something about coming back in a few months, at the time I thought nothing of it.  After they released the single “Run” & that statement, there is a good chance there will be a new album from them this year!

 

At this point whatever happens between Russia & America will leave me uninterested.  Too much stuff flying around.

Yep, Friday night watching baseball on the couch in a +26 Celcius home.  Before watching the game, we we’re out running some errands, I was trying to avoid being here.  I can’t stand the heat.  In the winter we aren’t allowed to turn on the air.  Our windows all face south though.  Even with the blinds closed +25 Celcius is quite common.  I wait for the summer to blast the air & keep the house at +22, even though it’s too hot to have bare feet on our balcony.  We don’t have a furnace, it’s water heat, a boiler & forced air for the A/C.  The cooler is on the roof & the blower is in our laundry room.

I think the A/C has a mind of it’s own?  It’s Saturday morning, tried turning the A/C on & it works!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Must be the weather.  I’ve heard a fair bit of thunder the last few days & my parents have lost power from time to time, I don’t know what the deal is?

To finish off Saturday, Kim ran a 5km run with a couple of friends.  I stayed home with Brewster, bad anxiety problems, & the run was very early in the morning.  Kim picked us up, we dropped Brewster off at my parents & met our friends for lunch, grabbed some beer at Willow Park, fancy beer, strawberry beer one bottle is enough since it’s so sweet.  We came home & we were exhausted, had a snooze.  Me on the couch & Kim on the love seat.  Woke up, had supper, & watched some “Modern Family”.

Sundays are our get ready for the week.  Kim will get some groceries, I’ll cook some fish for my lunches, make a pitcher of juice of blended fruit & vegetables, & Kim likely has some laundry to get to.

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today.

 

I think Trump is constantly pushing everyone he can, just so he can make the rules to push everyone away.  After I posted the Friday blog, I watched CNN for a bit.  He’s pulled the USA out of Paris’ climate deal.

Many of you probably didn’t see the press briefing Friday morning.  The press asked 3 different times if Trump believed in climate change.  After 3 separate individuals asked & all received the same political answer it was as clear as mud.  Whoever that was, it’s a simple yes or no question.  I would ask “Does the President believe in climate change?  Please reply with a yes or no answer.”  If he just responds with the same political garbage answer, I’d let it rest.

How did Trump see the photo Kathy Griffin posted of his severed head?  Doesn’t Trump call CNN “fake news”?  Did Kathy Griffin act alone?  Who took the picture?  Was it on social media or on TV?  How did everyone see it?

I’m guessing former FBI leader Comey is a moving target until he takes the stand during the trial on Thursday.  I’d hate to be in his shoes right now, constantly looking over his shoulder.

No, it’s just metal.  Sub-genres are just a lot of ballyhoo & non-sense to me, thrash, death, melodic death, power, grind core, progressive, etc.  It’s metal you like some of it or not.  Have you ever heard anyone say “Progressive Soft Rock?”

Friday we watched a bunch of stuff from our DVR.  Kim had a hair appointment on Thursday right after work, so she wasn’t home until 8:30 pm or so.  I watched the Blue Jays lose both games of a double header that day & evening.  If there’s a way to lose a game, they’ll figure it out!

Friday we just hung out on the couch.  There was a new episode of “Riverdale” on Netflix that we watched as well.

Saturday I had a blood test, then we grabbed lunch at Tim Horton’s on the way home.  Then a lazy day at home.  I watched the Jays game & Kim went out grocery shopping with her sister, Sherry after Kim came home from rollerblading.  It’s a little windy here but it’s a nice spring day!

Plans changed for the day today, as soon as we woke up one of our friends texted Kim, our friend Jolene woke up with a sore back.  “Auntie” & “Uncle” to the rescue.  I was going to just be lazy & watch the baseball game.  Now I see a lot of painting, colouring, sticker, & perhaps a cartoon movie or some “Paw Patrol” today.

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today.  Stretching everyday & many routine appointments to come by the end of July.

 

With their win on Saturday before the game on Sunday they’re 7W – 17L, not good, so for the sake of making a move they got rid of their backup catcher.  I’m sure the guy who plays twice a week was the problem?

Friday night was very, very tame.  We stayed home, had a meal of fend for yourself, watched the movie “Collateral Beauty” and went to bed around 10:30pm.  Good movie, just very slow all of the way through!

Saturday Kim went out groceries, while I cranked the stereo to “Diemonds” and did some dishes & cleaned Brewster’s throw up!

Sunday we actually went out for my cousin’s baby’s baptism.  A lot of my grandparent’s friends I haven’t seen in a whole.  I had too much lunch & Kim made the mistake of leaving me in the vehicle with peanut M & M, they’re long gone now.

Tomorrow I’ll begin some light workout finally.  I’ve hit my limit for claiming chiropractor appointments on my taxes.  When I saw him last week, he gave me the OK for light exercises!  FINALLY!

Don’t feel as though you need to open every link.

I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “Silence in the Snow”, then about ¾ of “Lamb of God” the album “Sturm Und Drang”

Early morning straight out the door for a message & a blood test before my MRI.  Preseason baseball to watch this afternoon.  In other words, I’ll be laying on the couch in a position that is comfortable for my leg with an ice pack on it.

I admit that at most times I was OK being the center of attention in comfortable situations or in a small group of friend.  I’m older now & I look like the loser of a brawl.  I’m OK not being the center of attention now, then I don’t feel as though I have to be “on”.  I still have issues meeting new people looking the way I do, in a wheelchair & with an iPatch.  However, when anyone wants to take a photo of my cousins & I, I’m asked to take off my iPatch & sometimes stand up with someone’s help.  Well I’ve never enjoyed anyone taking my photo to begin with & me without my iPatch, glasses, or wheelchair is just as fake as a poorly done photoshop picture.  How about no photos please.  I don’t look at them or have a camera.  Take photos of whatever you like, just not me please?

Basically what I’m saying is I used to really enjoy going out, now I go out of the house once or twice a week & I’m good, or else I get cabin fever.  I don’t leave the house every morning & drive to work, I get bored very fast.

 

Yep, I bought Ed Sheeran on preorder & got it last night!  I haven’t listened to it yet.  I got the deluxe edition.  It’s a 16 song album & I’d rather give it a more focused listen the first time around.

 

I forgot to mention yesterday that “Queens of the Stone Age” have completed the recording process of their new album also.  I think a new album from “Royal Blood” is almost a guarantee as well, from what I saw on Facebook a few weeks ago?

 

Pentatonix shared it….

 

I think one day of not giving any member of Trumps’ office any news or publicity would be hilarious!  They can ban any news source they want, & the entire media can choose whatever they want to report on.  The problem with this is ratings & news articles seriously drop if this is what happens?

I find it odd when a band says “We’re going back to our original sound” like U2 said after releasing the free album to anyone with iTunes.  I don’t think a band should ever make that statement.  They’re setting the bar for their next album.  Hardcore fans will more than likely be disappointed & anyone else that hears the album could sway either way & be disappointed with the next album or the preceding catalogue.  I find that to be a faux pas.  It took “Metallica” a long time for most fans.

 

The Blue Jays have needs that could solve many of their issues staring at them right in the face.  They aren’t planning on using them though because they’re too young.  Their off season plan was to get younger & more left handed.  Rowdy Tellez & Dalton Pompey do both & they’re Blue Jays that came through the Jays minor system.  I wonder why this team hasn’t made it to the World Series since 1993?  Both players are young, left handed.  Tellez fills a void at first base, & Pompey can hit lead off while filling a void in left field, as well as having speed on the bases.  You still have a great bat on the bench with the injured utility player Steve Pearce they got in the off season who only has 100 MLB games under his belt & he’s right handed.  Let the kids play, & I’d drop Upton & Smoak in a trade for another utility player/bat off of the bench in a second.  Smoak has yet to live up to his potential & Upton is on the downside of his career.
