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

I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the album “Concrete & Gold, followed by “Trivium” the album “The Sin & the Sentence”

Friday carried on with me watching the Blue Jays first pre-season game & some of the kids, I think, have a chance of making the 25 man roster.  All of that said, it was one game.  I watched the game & Prime Time Sports with Bob McCown.  I only watch the first hour on Fridays to hear the call in hour for other people’s opinion on whatever they want to talk about, or anytime of the week when he announces what the topics will be & who he’ll be talking to.  Kim came home & as usual we watched “The Ellen Degeneres Show” then the Olympics until we went to bed at 10:30 or so.

I missed 3 of my favourite “Winter Olympics” events.  Ski jump, Speed Skating, & Hockey.

Kim got up early Saturday to go out for coffee with Jolene.  Then off to see a medium.  After going to see a Medium she was home at 5:30 pm.  We hung out on the couch, had supper, & watched some of “Friends” on Netflix after “The Legend of 420”.

I don’t use it, but you go ahead.  It is said that it can help cancer patients.  It was never recommended to me, although I know it can be useful.  I personally choose not to use it.

Kim went out this morning for groceries.  I cooked fish yesterday for my lunches during the week.  Made a veggie juice for the week.  We visited my Grandparents for a bit.  My cousin, her husband, & their toddler were there also.

We’ll be hard boiling some eggs & doing laundry.  Just our usual Sunday, getting ready for the week ahead.

 

 

Prince was the first musical act I was into, but Michael Jackson was never out of sight.  I saw the video for “Thriller” & was pretty much hooked on him for a long time.  When the album “Dangerous” was released & the video for “Black or White” was released, it was an event in my parents’ house.  Of course there are songs I’m not a huge fan of, but most of his stuff I’ve always enjoyed.

All I own for Michael Jackson is the albums “Dangerous” & 2 “Greatest Hits” albums.  I made an album of 30 songs on iTunes that I’ll listen to all the way through.  “All killer, no filler” – Sum 41.  That album was mostly filler for me.

 

In Flames, Opeth, & Dream Theater seem to be under constant fire for not being as “heavy” as they once were.  Unless you’re a flat out metal fan, heavy isn’t always necessary

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”

Finished off Friday by playing 3 games of cribbage with my cousin & her new boyfriend.  Good times!  Kim’s not a cribbage fan, so I finally used the cribbage board I got for Christmas!

Saturday was a busy day!  A guy I haven’t seen since I graduated high school in 1998 came over to visit.  We were on the high school baseball team, sang in the choir & the chamber choir that went to Newfoundland in the summer of ’97.  Nice to catch up.  He’s still into baseball.  So now I’ve got 3 other people to watch baseball with 3 X Chris + Trevor, I know more & more Chris’ as I get older.

He left around or just before 4 pm.  Hannah, Jolene & Corey showed up very shortly after.  The girls went to see “Peter Rabbit”.

Corey brought all of the ingredients for the most unhealthy meal we created in 2002, he made supper, brought beer, & washed dishes.  Then we had 2 medium pizzas to bake, poutine chicken wings, 2 or 3 beer each, & some chips.  Sat on the couch & waited for my dad to pick us up to see “Big Wreck” at Casino Regina for a 20th anniversary show of their first album.  It was fantastic.  There was even an announcement to turn off your cell phone or any other recording device before the opening act hit the stage.  The only negative to the show was that they ended with a “Thornley” song.

Sunday was spent mostly on the couch watching “FRIENDS” on Netflix.  Today is the get ready for the week day.  Kim is doing laundry & hard boiling eggs.  I make a pitcher of blended vegetables & baking fish.

 

Big Wreck concert review.

I was not legal drinking age when their 1st album came out in 1998.  I saw them in a bar in 1999 at the age of 19 (legal drinking age in Saskatchewan).  They blew me away & I haven’t missed a show of theirs in Regina since.  Without over exaggerating I’ve likely seen them 12-15 times including the recent 3 times I’ve seen them.  From ’99 to 2002 they’d come through Regina 2-4 times a year before they broke up.  Then the lead singer started a band called “Thornley” that released 2 albums the 2nd was released when I was in the hospital.  Corey bought the CD for me while I was in the hospital.  Big Wreck returned with a new album touring through Regina on May 6th, 2012 (my sister-in-law’s birthday) we saw them at The Pump.

Last night we saw (Corey, dad, & I) the 20th anniversary show of their debut album that had 3 or 4 singles all over the radio & 3 videos on Much Music.  I reverted to a 19 year old again, but I knew all of the words this time & quietly sang along.  These 4 songs were/are their popular songs here anyways…

That’s 1 of 4 big concerts for me this year another 20th anniversary show coming up & another one I went to in 2016.  20th anniversary shows make me feel old until I’m their then I revert to 19 or 20 years old again during the show.

 

So, I could purchase one decent album by Ed Sheeran, or I could buy 1 song from 10 artists I don’t listen too?  I buy albums only!

Friday night we had a birthday party for a Cabbage Patch kid.  We were babysitting for friends, their daughter of 3 years old.  Pizza, birthday cake, & I had some leftover veggies.  REALLY Kim?  Vegetables with pizza????  Since when do you have pizza with a side of broccoli??????   I don’t think a few pieces of broccoli cancel the effects of pizza & birthday cake, nice try though!

After we heard the “Frozen” soundtrack, we watched “Paw Patrol” & “Rainbow Rock”.  “Rainbow Rock” was my child metal for the evening, she knew the words to most of the songs & chimed in a bit before the cartoon started singing the lyrics!

“Paw Patrol” might be my new favourite show!

Saturday afternoon, Mitch & Rachel came over to watch the concert DVD I got a little while ago by “In Flames”.  I got it through amazon.ca.  My mother ordered it since she has next day shipping.  It was a month late since it wasn’t released in North America.  It was shipped from Germany & had would only play on European made players.  The Blu-ray had the regional restrictions on amazon, the DVD didn’t though.  Fortunately my dad had a non-regionally restricted DVD player sitting around so I could watch it.

Saturday night, leftovers, couch & we rented “Finding Dory”.

 

This sciatic nerve crap should be gone by now, but NO.  When you wake up around 3:00 am, can’t get comfortable & fall asleep until around 5:00 am, you know it’s still a problem!  It’s a dull pain, then a brief sharp pain when I move my leg.  “In the end” it’s more of an annoyance than anything.  It’s preventing me from doing EVERYTHING!  I’d really like to do my exercise, said no one ever, but it’s painful to even try doing them.  It’s getting far beyond ridiculous!

 

 

That’s quite the list of celebrities for a protest!  It’s already working, I’m talking about it, so it is working.

Friday evening I watched the Blue Jays lose 2-0 to Cleveland in game 1 of a best of 7 series.  Cleveland won the game, Blue Jays didn’t really lose it.  If they can score 4-7 a game they should be able to win the series?  The Blue Jays scoring 4 runs in a game is not out of the question.  They have scored that many in one inning multiple times this year.  I think their “mantra” should be “Do what I did to get here, then do just a bit more”.  Pretty difficult to win a game when you don’t score.  Either way, this team will look very different next year.  I think there’s 8 players who have contracts expiring in the offseason & Rogers won’t be opening the purse strings to sign them all.  That includes some big names; Bautista, Encarnacion, & Michael Saunders.  Then some that will venture into arbitration.  This year is sort of a catch 22 for the GM & President.  If they win, everyone that can will be asking for more money, even now that they’re in the playoffs this could happen.  If they lose, well it’s a business of what have you done for me lately?

Saturday morning, I should have just stayed in bed, it was a day of Murphy ’s Law.  “This was easy yesterday, why not today?”  Then I get mad at myself.  The afternoon & evening turned out to be much better!  We went over to Corey & Jolene’s place for the Saskatchewan Roughriders win their 5th game of the year, 4 wins in a row.  Kim’s back was out for Hannah’s 3rd birthday.  Hannah got her birthday gift today from us, & we got supper and birthday cake!  Oh, and beer mmm!  Came home to watch the recorded Blue Jays game.  2 losses in a row.  Pretty hard to win 2 games when score 1 run over the course of 2 games.

 

Corey’s trying to sell me on Apple Music.  I use it to preview an album in it’s entirety, but if Apple Music goes down, there goes my music.  So I purchase my music through iTunes.  Sure, I spend more money & I have to cool it now, but what I have will always be there, I own it.  If Apple, with their steady decline in the market, takes away my music, that’s flat out stealing from a customer?  At first when he started using it he said something to the tune of “Make a list of what you listen to on Apple Music.  If it goes down, then purchase it.”  Solid point, but I can’t spend $600 all at once on music?  I’m just not comfortable with streaming sites.  Streaming site or not, artists aren’t making nearly as much money as they used to.  All of the 1980s hair metal groups made a pile of money & pretty much got whatever they wanted, so why not pay for music now?  I look at streaming sites as cheap satellite radio X 100.  You can listen to exactly what you want to hear, but it could be taken away at any moment.  That’s just how I see it.  Use a streaming site or not, there’s no manual about how to use the internet.

Everybody has a cell phone, I choose not to.  Does that make me or anyone else “with or without” wrong?  I don’t think so?

 

Sunday, try to do as little as possible, unless Kim has some fancy idea that I’d have to help her with.  We don’t do much on Sundays.  Kim gets groceries & cleans, steams her work close.  I do what I’m told.  Once that’s done, it’s couch time!

10 best Metallica riffs

http://loudwire.com/10-greatest-metallica-riffs/

What’s funny is listen to these 2 riffs!  They’re identical, Queens of the Stone Age just split the Metallica riff in half & it’s played on bass.  If you’re a guitar player, look up the music or tab!

 

Another tune from “Jimmy Eat World”

 

Brody Dalle, formerly of “The Distillers” now married to Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age, has a new video.  I guess it’s from the 9 song album she released in April.  I wasn’t a Distillers fan.  This is all news to me.  This song seems to be good though!

Here’s a song from “The Distillers” & yes the singer is Brody Dalle.

A few people I went to SIAST with were casual fans of “The Distillers”.  That’s the only reason I know their name.

IT SURE FEELS LIKE FRIDAY, YET IT’S NOT……………..OH DE PLUF!

 

I fell asleep to “Dream Theater” the self-titled album from 2013.  They have released 2 since then & a pile more before that.

 

I exercised to “Counting Crows” the album “Recovering the Satellites”

This is the album with “Mr. Jones”.  I bought these two & 3 other ones that did nothing for me, except the live album I own

I was feeling nostalgic the other day & played these 2 albums on my iPod

Pearl Jam’s “Backspacer” was released 7 years ago.  Most casual fans had mixed emotions, I’m a casual fan of Pearl Jam it was VERY radio friendly & VERY calm.  I like this album, they’ve released other albums that are very calm & don’t work for me.  I have all of their albums on CD, the most recent one from iTunes & I really like their music, I just forget there’s more than the album “V.S.” & “Yield”

 

Big Wreck shared it……

 

I missed a bit of this, interesting though.  Seems like documentary makers are trying to cash in on the Netflix series “Making a Murderer” might as well strike while it’s hot!

 

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.  I like superhero movies, but I can see that there are fewer options for those that don’t like them.

 

Kerry King of “Slayer” weighs in on ”Anthrax” collaboration with “Public Enemy”.  Personally I would like Kerry King to learn how to do a guitar solo in key?  I’ve never been able to play a lightning fast guitar solo & I’m not well versed on the key of a song, but I know when something is out of tune.

80 squats, 1500 crunches, 140 leg lifts & 60 pushups every day, 5 days a week.  I’d like to see 100 squats a day, 200 leg lifts a day, & 100 pushups a day. It may take a while but I’ll get there eventually.

Monday was Labour Day, the rest of the week was lost/spent on learning how to use this computer.  Wednesday & Friday I got my exercise in finally.  This is my total for two days pf exercise; 3000 crunches, 80 squats, 120 pushups, & 140 leg lifts.

 

You’d think with all of this exercising I’d be ripped, not the case?  I have to remember I had zero muscle on me after a year of being in a bed, waking up only for pain killers.  I truly am “Something from Nothing”  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!

I was expecting “Highly Suspect” to have this album available for preorder also?  REALLY  “available in the USA only not in Canada on iTunes” I guess I’ll wait some more or is it a hoax?

I guess this article explains everything?

http://www.ew.com/article/2016/09/07/highly-suspect-boy-who-died-wolf

 

I already have 5 or 6 albums to sift through for number 1 at the end of the year.  By the end of October I’ll have 6 more albums being fully released & then there are even more that could very likely be released this year?

LIVING CANCER FREE

I fell asleep to “Puscifer” the album “Money Shot” after 3 or 4 attempts at other albums including “Prince” the album “Purple Rain” & “Pantera” the album “Vulgar Display of Power”

EXPLICIT LANGUAGE IN THE SONG BELOW!!! Prince never allowed any audio in his youtube videos. Here’s Foo Fighters covering “Darling Nikki” as a B-Side for single from “The Colour & The Shape” released in 1997.

I exercised to “Dream Theater” the first 3 songs on the album “The Astonishing”

Followed by “Lynyrd Skynyrd” a double album “The Essential” on shuffle

Rydell I remember this from your wedding. I think you were dancing with the mothers?

So now I’m living cancer free which is awesome! Those 4 & ½ years look smaller & smaller as time progress’. Can’t remember them nor do I really want to. Now I pay far more attention to my health. I eat much better than I did before. Sure I splurge like most people about 2 or 3 times a month or on the odd occasion we go out, which isn’t very often. The rest of the time I drink a mixture of fruit & vegetables I toss in a blender & have that for breakfast usually other than once a month that we go out for brunch. Lunch is usually a chicken wrap with a bit of grated cheese & Frank’s Red Hot. Supper is a wild card, usually chicken with Quinoa & wild rice in some form with some type of vegetables or a salad from Pita Pit or something along those lines. I eat less sugar filled stuff than I did before. Even my snacks are grapes, carrots or rice/pita crackers & hummus. 2 or 3 liters of water or a glass of cranberry juice to change it up a bit. If we go out, it depends on my mood, a salad or the tastiest thing on the menu. I exercise Monday-Friday for a little over an hour & I think we’ll be walking Saturdays & Sundays in our parkade with my walker & Kim holds me to make sure I don’t fall! I wish you all could meet her, she’s beyond AWESOME!

There’s no manual for surviving, surviving stage 4 brain cancer. I was told to exercise, especially my core muscles. So I spend roughly 1 ½ hours every morning exercising. My abdominal muscles are incredible, unfortunately they’re covered by a layer of fat. My mom suggested I try doing some squats! I’ve added that into my exercises. I have many exercises I can do here at home on the floor & stairs, walking & using the exercise bike in the condo’s “gym” aka a exercise bike & a treadmill.
