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

Music from this weekend!  “Foo Fighters”, “The Struts”, “Boston”, “Norman Greenbaum”, “Young MC”, & “Muse”

 

The BIG 40th wedding anniversary of my parents was on Saturday.  Yes, I’m 38.  They had me the same year they were to turn 21, I came along before their 21st birthdays.  My birthday is in January.  My brother came into the mix in 1987.  Yeah, 7 years between Mitch & I.  He’s bigger than me, especially now that I’m in a wheelchair!  Hahahahaha!

I don’t speak well so I wrote the speech & Mitch read it, added a few things & delivered the speech at the party.  My immediate family means the world to me, there’s no way I could live in a different city, province, or country.  My in-laws celebrate their 40th anniversary next weekend.  Unfortunately we won’t see them until Christmas.

It was a lot like our wedding for me.  Lots of visiting not enough drinking at the OPEN BAR!!!

Sunday was at my parents’ house.  Make your own bun which, drink whatever, & watch the Grey Cup if you like.  Kim’s not a football fan & with Calgary & Ottawa in the game, nobody really cared to watch it.  We went around 1:00 pm then came home around 7:00 pm.  Good times & a TON of people to catch up with!

Sunday was for the friends & family who didn’t have to travel home until Monday.

 

If you don’t believe in climate change, can I ask you why?

That’s all until the New Year.  Be safe & have fun.  I’ll catch you on January 2nd 2019.  Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, & enjoy some time off of work!

 

MUSE – SIMULATION THEORY released Nov. 9, 2018.

I really like Muse, the album “The Resistance” was their first time doing an almost completely electronic album.  Good in theory, for me it was a very weak album.  If there was ever a progressive pop album, “Simulation Theory” would be it.  This album really reminds me of U2’s “Achtung Baby” & I love that U2 album.  Everybody is saying all of the Muse albums sounded the same.  Sure, some of them did.  This is a band I’ll likely never see live, so it will likely remain on my bucket list.  All I hear is “You gotta see them live”.  This is their 8th studio album.  If you were to put U2, Coldplay, the first 3 Radiohead albums, with a dash of Dream Theater in a blender, you’d have Muse!

You can’t make everyone happy all of the time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pitiful 2 day exercise total; 200 pushups, 120 tricep pushups, 100 back flexes, 120 squats, 200 leg lifts, 100 crunches.

I fell asleep to “In Flames” the album “Come Clarity”

I exercised to “Rush” the album “Roll the Bones”

 

Tuesday I woke up with a sinus cold.  I didn’t have a cold on Wednesday, my “bones & joints” were sore, like aching, growing pains.  Took an extra strength Tylenol at bed time & woke up with no pain.  Did 4/6 exercises Thursday, no problem!  After my exercise on Thursday, I feel much better!

Arms are my exercises on Tuesdays & Thursdays.  The total is a 2 day total.  I find it more reasonable to separate the exercises to let the muscles rest for a day.

I’m not going to tell you what to do, I know most people have a job &/or kids just maybe try doing 10 crunches &/or 10 pushups each day if you have time?

If you don’t have the time or energy, that’s fine.  When I was working, exercise was very far from my mind.  I guess Kim & I went to “Curves” for woman exercise & across the parking lot I went to “The Blitz” for men immediately after work.  We didn’t go for more than 3-6 months in total.  On any day, whether we went to the gym or not, we’d flop down on separate couches & just be “exhausted”.

CANDLEBOX

Kim’s brother-in-law got me into them.  He doesn’t own the album “Lucy” so I avoided it as well.  They have 6 studio albums, 2 Greatest Hits compilation, & a live album.  I have 5 of 6 studio albums.  The self-titled album was their first release in 1993.  They release stuff, they’re just slow with the releases, like “Tool” just not as extreme.  Here’s a few songs from their last 2 albums….

Music from this weekend!  “Dead Sara”, “Big Wreck”, “Foo Fighters”, more “Dead Sara”, “A Perfect Circle”, & “Nothing But Thieves”.

STRONG LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Friday was regularly quiet, that’s getting old, but everyone is tired on Fridays.  I get to cram 8 hours of energy in 1 – 1 ½ hours in the morning & plant myself on the couch until I feel like showering in the afternoon.  Most people have to spread their energy out over 8 hours or more. I get to use it all right away, then rest.  I’d like to do something on Friday night, but I understand why others don’t want to do anything.

Saturday was, wake up at 7:00 am, go back to bed & sleep until 11:00 am.  Kim went grocery shopping with her sister, I made my weekly vegetable juice & took care of some dirty dishes while she was out.

For supper, Kim picked up some steak to BBQ to go with the sweet potato fries.  So Kim, steak, beer, & football for a Saturday night, pretty sweet deal here!  B.C. lost to Calgary which means the Saskatchewan Roughriders have a home playoff game next weekend against arch rivals the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.  Whenever Winnipeg is in town, it’s always a fun game!

Today is hard boiling some eggs, baking some fish & such, getting ready for the week ahead.

 

Dream Theater, Big Wreck, In Flames, Megadeth, Lamb of God, Alter Bridge & Tool (which I’ll believe when I see it) have all started the writing &/or recording process for release’s next year!

You will NEVER hear this song by Tool live!  Rumor is Maynard James Keenan couldn’t speak for 3 weeks after recording the vocals?

 

JACK JOHNSON

7 studio albums in total.  I own 6 of them on CD.  He’s from Hawaii & does a lot of surfing.  He would film himself & his friends surfing.  I think he put his music on the videos & then started releasing his music to the masses?  Don’t quote me on that last comment.  The 3rd album has the song for our first dance at our wedding, we had a hard time finding a song we agreed on.  I seem to prefer his first album though?  Anyways, here are a few songs from his first album….

CONCERT UPDATE   FOO FIGHTERS with THE STRUTS

Yes, I was in Calgary with my dad to see Foo Fighters with The Struts opening for them.  This was my 5th time seeing Foo Fighters live.  2000, 2003, 2011, 2015, & now 2018.  I had just got “The Colour & the Shape” in 1998 or late 1997, so I didn’t go to Edgefest 1998.  Edgefest was a one day long touring festival of rock bands that went across Canada.  I went to the last touring Edgefest in 1999.  Saw Foo Fighters in 2000 at a similar festival organized by Our Lady Peace called “Summersault”.  This concert in 2018 was how I found out about ‘The Struts’.  I heard they were opening for Foo Fighters on this tour.  The Struts 2nd album will be available on iTunes & elsewhere on Friday, October 26th.  They remind me of Queen without the operatic parts.

We drove to Calgary on Monday, had Western Pizza for supper that evening, concert was Tuesday night.  We drove home Wednesday, mom wasn’t feeling very good, I took her ticket to see comedian Craig Ferguson at the Casino.  We basically stopped at my parents’ place place for a washroom break & left for the Casino.

Since the concert was postponed, ‘The Struts’ didn’t open & weren’t even there.  I was really looking forward to seeing them.  Well at least I got to see “Foo Fighters” for the 5th time in my life!  2000, 2003, 2011, 2015, & now 2018.  Kim & I had tickets to see them in 2008 in Saskatoon, but somebody got brain cancer & couldn’t go to the show.  My parents went to that show instead.

Dad’s ticket was his Christmas present for 2017.  We were in line for the doors to open at 6:00 pm.  Went in got our T-Shirts, some soft ice cream, & found our seats.  Exact same seats we had earlier this year for “Queens of the Stone Age”.  This was the last show of the tour, you could tell they were tired & rightfully so.  They played for 2 hours & 50 minutes roughly, they do that every show.  They played a minimum of at least one song from their 9 studio albums, a ‘Queen’ cover, ‘The Ramones’, Alice Cooper’, ‘Tom Petty’, & a mashup of the piano part of John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ with the vocals of ‘Van Halen’s’ ‘Jump’.  It fits really well actually.  So 4 songs ASAP from the new album, and one song each from the previous 4 albums, 2 from “One by One”, 2 from “There is Nothing Left to Lose”, 3 from “The Colour & The Shape”, & one from their debut album.

The sound was poor at best.  Everything was too loud & the vocals were buried in the mix.  Everything was loud & distorted.  The opening band was a 3 piece band from the U.K. called ‘The Joy Formidable’, big letdown for me since I was really excited to see “The Struts”.  I guess I saved $30 since there were no ‘Struts’ T-Shirts.  Here’s a sample of what we heard from “Foo Fighters”……

LANGUAGE IN 2 OF THESE LINKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

This is with the singer of “The Struts”, in Calgary Dave Grohl played drums & sang while Taylor Hawkins went out front to sing his part.

Of course the show ended with “Everlong” as usual

 

Here’s a few songs by “The Struts”.  They remind me of “Queen” without the operatic parts….

 

From the new album out tomorrow.

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

I fell asleep to “The Trews” the album “House of Ill Fame”

I exercised to “Dead Sara” the self-titled debut album

This was intended to be earlier.  I got up at 7:30, the power was out from 8:00 to 9:50.  Brewster was freaking out, he has bad anxiety, we have small doses of valium for him, I didn’t want to give it to him.  Instead I spent all of that time with him on my lap, while I had breakfast & got as much ready as I could for my exercise & shower.  Even when the power came back on he was still freaking out.  We had about an hour where he’d freak out at the front closet, or approach it & I would clap my hands to make him stay out of that area, he hates loud noises so that’s what the clapping was for.

I’ve done my exercises, time to shower & have lunch soon.

I’ve decided pushups & triceps will be on Tuesdays & Thursdays, everything else will be Mondays, Wednesdays, & Fridays.

When I meet someone new, I get quiet after telling them I had brain cancer.  That’s always the first thing I tell people when I meet them.

I don’t want cancer to define me, & I’ve got no problem answering any questions they may have.  I’m just not a fan of telling my story over & over.  As much as I don’t want cancer to define me, it will always be a portion of what defines me.  I figure, there is no hiding my wheelchair or iPatch.  Might as well get that part out in the open & forget about it.

Other things that define aren’t visible, other than I wear shorts year round.  “Aren’t you cold?” is something I often hear in the winter.  If I was cold I wouldn’t be wearing shorts & a hoodie with my tuque & gloves.  I’m usually over heated, so shorts it is, who needs pants?  Pants are only for special occasions!

Other than shorts, an iPatch, & a wheelchair, there’s a TON more to me.  I do tend to shy away from large group gatherings because there are 2 things I don’t want to say to people.  “Hey, read my blog” & I don’t want to barf out why I’m in a wheelchair, with an iPatch, & why my speech is hard to understand.

The previous blog should have been titled TECHNOLOGY/BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN.

Well I’ll be glued to Netflix watching the 2nd season of “Making a Murderer”, as long as they don’t push it back to air this time.

And the plot thickens some more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Remember what happened last time Foo Fighters took a break?  Dave got bored, they recorded an album, released it, & started touring after 1 year “off”

Two albums released today “Greta Van Fleet” & a 4 song EP from “Nothing but Thieves”

 

COHEED & CAMBRIA

8 studio albums & a few live albums.  I have 5 studio albums.  I only really listen to 2 of them.  My friend Elka turned me on to them.  They’re a progressive rock band.  The singer’s voice is quite high, so I’m sure they won’t be for everyone.  I got the albums only in digital form.  They recently released “The Unheavenly Creatures”.  It’s on my iPod on repeat since it’s release on October 5th to the 14th.  Here’s a few tracks from “The Color Before the Sun” & “The Unheavenly Creatures”……

I fell asleep to “I Mother Earth” the album “The Quicksilver Meat Dream”

Wear a shirt, listen to the band!

I exercised to “Finger Eleven” the album “Tip”

 

I watched “This is Life” on CNN with Lisa Ling last Sunday.  It was about people becoming addicted to technology.  They even mentioned that kids are committing suicide or throwing tantrums when their phone, tablet, computer, etc. is taken away, kids who have graduated high school or have dropped out of school.  I guess there is a rehab place for it in Silicon Valley.  One guy who was suicidal, because he played games on his cell phone so much he wouldn’t sleep, he just kept playing the game, he stopped speaking to other people completely.  He spoke to the group, including his sister & parents about just getting a flip phone.

What am I trying to explain here is that the Facebook message, email, tweet, etc. will be there, even if you don’t reply instantly.  Nobody talks to anyone any more.  I’ll text you, email you, Facebook you, etc. that’s all I hear.  You can call me, Facebook me, or email me to get together later on.  Then we can talk face to face.

I’m not perfect by any stretch of the imagination.  I refuse to get a smart phone.  I don’t want to hear an alert from my phone all of the time.  My wife has a cell phone & it drives me nuts when she sets it on the couch & I feel it vibrate or hear it make a sound.  If I really need a phone, I’ll get a flip phone & people can call me.

Companies like google, yahoo, email sites, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. are trying to push out as much crap as possible to keep you engaged with your phone as long as possible so they can make more money.

You know what’s coming next?  Robots, that are stronger than us.  Jim Jefferies even had a segment about them.  They’re real, & I want no part of it!

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

Kids on average get a cell phone between the ages of 6-13.  Why do kids need/want a cell phone at that age?  I’m 38 with nothing more than a desktop computer aka I don’t freak out without a cell phone in my pocket.  It is so nice to not worry about that.  What is on my computer desk?  Pens & paper, to write down new phone numbers & new passwords.

https://www.cnn.com/2017/12/11/health/cell-phones-for-kids-parenting-without-borders-explainer-intl/index.html

Kids are said to be more depressed these days because of less human interaction & they’re not the C.E.O. a successful business after being there for 8 months.  Chill out, the Earth doesn’t orbit around anyone, just the sun.

I do the same with this blog & assume everyone knows how I’m doing?  Well not everyone is reading this.  If they’re in a different province or country, I’ll email them or Facebook them, however they prefer to be reached.  I don’t send enough messages as I should though.

 

This is one of the reasons Dave Grohl is so cool!

 

Are Pentatonix going to release a Christmas album every year?  They’re on pace for it.

 

This is why I’m against streaming music & digital downloads.  Apple needs to get rid of their streaming music site, let the artists set the price between $9.99 to 14.99 per download.  The option?  Streaming sites need to pay the artist more!  I’ve got 600 CDs behind me in boxes.  The average cost of a CD was around $20- $25.  Artists could put the price at $18.99 & it would still be cheap for people like me.  I’m not an Avenged Sevenfold fan but this was the article that I saw.  99.9% of their income comes from touring.  I haven’t seen every band I like live, so they’re missing out on money from me in a way, I guess?

http://loudwire.com/avenged-sevenfold-synyster-gates-touring-99-9-percent-bands-income/

Would you want to spend $1000s of dollars on recording the music, paying a producer, a sound engineer, etc.?  Only to give it away on a fraction of a penny?  I’d make music for myself & tour every 5 years while working at another job 5 days a week.

 

Why would ‘System of a Down’ even consider getting a therapist like ‘Metallica’?  Remember after ‘Metallica’ got a therapist they gave us the album ‘St. Anger’.  An album that sounds terrible with 0 solos.  The solo thing I can get past, the production & song writing on that album leaves a LOT to be desired.

 

I wonder who put gasoline on the fire of the lies, deception, & hatred?

 

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN

I only own the album “Born in the USA”.  This is an album I heard as a kid, my dad was really into it.  He has the regular vinyl edition & bought a special edition that’s still sealed in the purchased packaging.  I bought this album on iTunes & added a few extra songs from his greatest hits album.

I saw this video ^^ while I was watching “FRIENDS” as a teenager & asked “Is that Monica from friends?”  Reply from my parents “Yes, it is” I was surprised.

These are all on the album.  The following is one of the songs I added.

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

Music from this weekend!  “Coheed & Cambria”, “Foo Fighters”, “Radiohead”, “Live”, & “In Flames”

Wear a shirt, listen to the band!

 

Really quiet weekend here.  All we did Friday was watch TV.  Got up Saturday & binge watched the rest of “The Fosters” on Netflix & now we’re done.

Watched the Saskatchewan Roughrider game on TV against Winnipeg 31-0 for the wrong team.  That’s 2 games in a row that the Riders have failed to score a touchdown with the offence on the field.  Bad time of the season to get into that habit with the playoffs around the corner!

After supper we tackled season 2 of “Atypical” on Netflix.   We binge watched 5 of 10 half hour episodes.

Of course today is us getting ready for the week, groceries, laundry, etc.  I’ve made my juice, boiled eggs & Kim is out to get some groceries at the moment.

 

THE CARS

More music my parents turned me onto.  All I have is a greatest hits compilation that I bought years ago on CD.  All I know about them is that the lead singer is married to a supermodel, whose name escapes me at the moment. The Cars used synthesizers for good, not evil like “Rush” did in the 1970s.
