I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the album “There is Nothing Left to Lose”

I exercised to “Big Wreck” the album “In Loving Memory of…”

 

What is it going to take to have Trump impeached?  How many times will we toss him a softball & he swings?  He doesn’t want North Korea to start a war on USA soil.  Great, that would probably affect us Canadians too.  But if any group of white supremacists wants to have a war on US soil against any one that’s different, that’s OK?  Can we please just get rid of him already?  I had brain cancer & survived.  If I were black or any colour than white or a part of the #LGBTQ community, which I fully support, & lived in the USA, I would probably be on the kill list, if not dead already.

When your President avoids any question, he’s actually saying a LOT!  Has STRONGLY implied that domestic white on black terrorism is OK.  Any person or group of another race hurting white people is wrong.  This morning I saw a report that he has stopped the funding of an anti-white supremacist group.  A group that helps people leave a neo-Nazi or KKK type of group safely if a person wants out.

Thanks Donnie, look at how much you’ve divided your own country.  People took to the streets on a random Saturday in August!

LANGUAGE & DISTURBING IMAGERY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don’t have anything polite to say about this current event.  Coincidence they support Donnie?

You want a travel ban?  I wouldn’t worry about most people visiting your country for a while.  You’ve pushed most people away already.  I have nothing against reasonable Americans, but Donnie is certainly an unreasonable one I would avoid, along with the KKK, Neo-Nazis or any hate group.  Thanks for taking your country back to the 1940s.

Diemonds released their last album in 2015.  If You like Guns n’ Roses, Diemonds might be just what you want to check out.  I’m not a GNR fan in the least, but Diemonds are AWESOME to me.  This is from their Facebook page.

“Never Wanna Die was released August 14, 2015, two years ago today. The album is dedicated to the memories of Alan Riches, Paul Mancuso and Vassil Mester, all one time members of Diemonds that passed away while we were writing it. We miss them. It was recorded with producer Eric Ratz in Toronto, Canada. We had our first experiences doing fun co-writes with Alan Frew from Glass Tiger (Never Wanna Die) and Ian D’Sa from Billy Talent (Ain’t That Kinda Girl) to name a few. We’re incredibly proud of its nomination of Heavy Metal Album of the Year in the 2016 Juno Awards. We’ve been lucky enough to tour this album in Canada, Japan, United States, and soon we’ll be able to add England, Scotland, France, Spain, Germany, and Austria to the list. Thank you for all of the continued support!! What’s your favourite track? Where do you want to see us live once we are finished recording our next record?”

I fell asleep to “The Watchmen” the album “Live & in Stereo”

I exercised to “Royal Blood” the brand new album “When did we get so dark?”

 

Yay it’s Friday & I’ve been waiting for it!  Sure I’m at home all day, but I exercise, take care of Brewster, have breakfast, watch minimal TV, shower, have lunch, write portions of this blog, practice guitar, & then I’ll hit the couch & listen to some music.  Then it’s 3:00 pm or so unless the dishwasher or hand washed dishes need to be tended to, or I need more fruit & veggie juice or I need to clean up something.  I’m usually out of bed by 8:30 am at the latest, I tend to go to bed around 11:00 pm.  Once I’m up it’s go, go, go, until everything I wanted to accomplish is done.

500 leg lifts, 200 pushups, 5 minutes of planking, yoga, 500 crunches & 100 back flexes this past week.

That’s 100 leg lifts, 40 pushups, 20 back flexes, 25 minutes of planking, 100 crunches & yoga 5 days a week.  First thing I do when I leave the bedroom, then breakfast & a shower.

Yes, those are my current goals.  I think they’ll stay at that limit for quite a while.  You know me though, I’ll likely push to raise some of the numbers sooner.

I used to be a decent swimmer.  I never took swimming lessons as a child.  My dad grew up playing water polo & swimming in the morning before class at the University.  He taught me how to swim.  My grandparents’ old condo had a swimming pool.  He taught me there & in the summer at the lake/cabin. My grandparents’ owned, built by my great grandfather.  I used to swim with no problems at all.  Now I wouldn’t get into a pool or lake without a life jacket on.

Royal Blood’s Facebook page

“Pleased to announce we’ll be supporting Queens of the Stone Age in North America in September/October. Tickets on sale 22nd June.”

Only Canadian date is in Toronto in October.  I guess technically that makes it a North American tour.  Toronto, just over a 2 day drive away from Saskatchewan.  Musically, I should move to Toronto or Europe.  Many North American tours are 20+ shows in America w/ 3 Canadian dates, Montreal, Toronto, B.C., & sometimes Calgary depending on the popularity of the artist(s).  Although Tool, Elton John, Ozzy Osbourne, Garth Brooks, Dixie Chicks, Blue Rodeo, Foo Fighters, In Flames, Trivium, Lamb of God, Megadeth etc.  Have at least played Saskatoon and a few of those have made their way to Regina.

 

TONS of great music for me being released this year.  I adore the new Big Wreck album. But the Paramore album “After Laughter” is on heavy rotation on our stereo & my iPod.  It’s much more of a pop album than previous albums that were the typical pop/punk/distorted guitars.

 

Just checked the ol’ iPod for counts of play on it!

30 times listening to Big Wreck’s ‘Grace Street’ & Paramore’s ‘After Laughter’

12 times for The Watchmen’s ‘Live & in Stereo’

The odd thing is I listen to our stereo more than my iPod!  I think I have a problem?

 

I’d sing & play these 2 songs at the band practices with my brother’s group!  He really doesn’t like these songs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’ve listened to the new Royal Blood album a few times this morning & WOW, no sophomore slump in sight.  I’d say it’s even better than their first album & it’s phenomenal also.

 

I went to a friend’s house last night to see his new place.  Pretty sweet place.  His condo looks great, could be that I haven’t scratched up, or demolished his walls with my wheelchair….yet!

I fell asleep to “System of a Down” the album “Steal This Album”

I exercised to “Foo Fighters” the album “In Your Honor” the rock album of the double album.

Busy morning CT scan at 9:30, I can’t eat until after the scan so Kim & I went for brunch after.  Went to Sportchek where Kim got me 2 pairs of shorts & new shoes/sneakers.  Everything was on sale & I found good shoes on the clearance shelf.  Then we got Brewster from my parents’ house.  The scan is just my routine scan before I see my Cancer Clinic doctor later on in the summer whenever that is?  We’ll call the shorts & shoes my anniversary gift.  Our 12th anniversary is on Sunday!

Exercise total for the week; 500 crunches, 250 leg lifts, 100 pushups.  So currently that’s; 100 crunches, 50 leg lifts, & 20 pushups a day.  I’ll up the numbers slowly to 1000 crunches every other day, then planking on the next day instead, 100 leg lifts, & hopefully 100 pushups a day.  No squats at least until I meet with the surgeon or after the surgery if I can get it.

I’ve been doing my exercise first thing in the morning all week, except on Monday when it was a sauna in here.  Sure it takes a while as I will increase the numbers.  I have the time though, more time than anyone with an 8 hour job 5 days a week, &/or kids to keep track of.

From Tuesday, February 5th 2008 – Thursday, July 26th 2012.  I missed EVERYTHING!  Not all that bad though.  All that mattered was me getting better.  Of course I missed everyone, friends & family.  Missing everything is probably why I saturate myself in pop culture?  That’s not real life all of the time though.  I like just hanging out with a small group of friends.  I can’t drive though, so sometimes/most times we invite people here.  Of course I clear it with Kim first.

That was a time when I had to be completely selfish & just focus on getting stronger & healthier.  All of that being said, it really does feel better to give than receive.  Wait……………I guess you all got me………………if you wanted or not.  Hahahahahaha!

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

Immediately after I posted Wednesday’s blog “Paramore” released a 2nd video from their album “After Laughter” out on May 12th.   They even broke ‘Spotify’ for a bit on Wednesday.

 

YAY!  “Nothing but Thieves” have an album coming out in September!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The first album was & is FANTASTIC!  It’s not a metal or hard rock album at all.  More like early Radiohead.

If you ask me, I’ll take their 2nd album, The Bends, over any of their other albums, & their 3rd album, OK Computer, is considered one of the most important alternative albums of all time!

 

Linkin Park announce North American tour.

http://loudwire.com/linkin-park-summer-2017-north-american-dates-machine-gun-kelly/

 

I wouldn’t expect a “Tool” album this year.  Good chance that there will be an “A Perfect Circle” album though.  I heard an interview with Maynard.  He basically said that he sees many road blocks for one band.  I’m guessing it’s Tool?  He didn’t want to name which band it was though.  In a different clip drummer, Danny Carey of Tool, laughed at the thought of a Tool album being released this year.  I hope A Perfect Circle doesn’t release something like the album of cover songs that sound dark & dreary & nothing that resembles the original versions.  Long audio interview!!!!!!!!!!!!

LANGUAGE IN THE INTERVIEW!  SKIP TO 40:00 FOR THE INFO!!!!!!!

LANGUAGE!!!!!  This is about his anger at God after his mother suffered a stroke.

 

Recall on Bombay gin.  Is this a bad thing?  If it’s got double the alcohol it’s like a 2 in 1!  Half a shot is good enough, it will last longer.  Or you’ll down it in two weekends & never drink gin again!

I fell asleep to “Green Day” the album “Dookie”, followed by “Wide Mouth Mason” their S/T album

I stretched to “The Watchmen” their 3rd album “Brand New Day”

 

I was ready Monday to do my exercise but after 300 crunches I knew to lay off.  My legs were getting sore.  I figure this should be a week of stretching only.  This leg/hip problem is really annoying & preventing me from doing what I’d like to do.  I was told by one of my doctors not to lay on my right side, so I didn’t.  After a while of sleeping on my left side, I woke up, stood up to get in my wheelchair & it felt as though I had a bruise on my left hip.  Now I can sleep on my back & somewhat on my right side.  This week will be stretching & guitar along with Blue Jay baseball!

I was going to do some pushups from my knees on Monday, then I realized I gave myself a large gash on my knee from crawling around.  It looks like I had knee surgery, far worse than it really is.  Didn’t really hurt ever, it just looks horrible.

I think I’ll continue the music/movie news.  I like it, stuff I’d like to know.  If all you want is surviving cancer news I’ll keep it at the top here.  If you want the pop culture stuff, I’ll put it below.  Like I said, the www.youtube.com links are just for reference if you don’t know who or what I’m talking about, you don’t need to play the entire clip.

As for this week, I’ll be practicing the song by “Clutch” & the song by “Foo Fighters”

I fell asleep to “Diemonds” 2/3 albums I own on shuffle “The Bad Pack” & “Never Wanna Die” got up go to the washroom, came back & to “Megadeth” the album “Dystopia”

I exercised to “Blameshift” 2 Eps & a full length album on shuffle, washed dishes to “Ed Sheeran” all 3 albums on shuffle.

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

I’m dumb!  Largest understatement I’ve made in the last 10 minutes, I’ve been watching CNN.  It took stage 4 brain cancer for me to wake up & start taking care of myself.  The photo of 2 guitar players on stage is of my brother & I.  I’m the guy in a white T-Shirt.  That’s me at my heaviest 265lbs, no I don’t look that heavy, doesn’t mean it’s OK though.  I haven’t weighed myself lately.  I did about 6 months ago & I was 233.  I went into the hospital at 265 & ballooned to probably close to 300?  I’m lighter at 233 than I’ve ever been in my adult life.  The only problem is ALL off my weight went to my stomach.  I have T-Shirts that don’t fit over my stomach.  I may have to have a serious discussion with my stomach.  At least I’ve smartened up & eat healthier now, & 3 drinks are more than enough Friday or Saturday.  Before I was sick it was outrageous!  8 or 9 drinks minimum on Friday & repeat on Saturday.  I really don’t miss those days, I’m a morning person now.  I like to get up & get stuff done!  Then I’ll sit on my butt & relax, & if the Blue Jays are on TV, don’t even pretend that I hear you!  Hahahahahhahaha!

I fell asleep to “Radiohead” the album “OK Computer” followed by “Lamb of God” the album “Sacrament”

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

I hope you all have fun tonight & get home safe!  No drinks for me.  I’m on some powerful muscle relaxants for my annoying nerve.  A few days after I was in the WRC they put on a “happy hour” for the residents.  I went to it.  I’m on multiple pills 3 times a day & I’m not supposed to drink then they turn around & have one of the nurse’s hand out 2 free drinks to anyone?  Holy mixed messages Batman? I don’t remember if I was able to drink anything at the time.  I couldn’t drink anything for quite a while.  My water & food came through IV for a few years.  My IV was full of a liquid called TPN.  I think it was 2010 that I was able to drink through a straw.  Even beer.  You don’t see that “every day”.

Yeah, I saw my chiropractor yesterday.  My dad took me.  I left here before 2:00 pm, then stayed at my parents’ house until after supper.  Kim had a hair appointment & wasn’t going to be home until 8:00pm or so.  Mom sent home some supper for her.

The chiropractor said it moved really well yesterday, & first did a lot of work on my ribs that had moved.  It feels REALLY good now.  He told me to gradually work into a not so demanding exercise & to keep up with my stretches.  So I did today.  Stretches, 100 crunches & 20 pushups.  As far as the leg exercises go, I plan to do them once everything feels 100% better.  Better safe than sorry.

My routine at the moment is slightly wonky, with my nerve being stubborn.  I get up & get ready at 7:00am.  By the time I do that, & pour a cup of coffee it’s near 7:30.  I watch 2 of the 3 late night talk shows I record, then CNN…………….& I laugh about not having a leader who thinks he can do whatever he wants.  I think I see Sean Spicer flapping his lips, trying to spin a quote from Trump, more often than I see Kim?  I can just imagine how he feels when his alarm goes off.  “Ah, what am I gonna have to spin today.  Wait I’ll check twitter”

The “Radiohead” album “OK Computer” is & always has been considered one of the most important albums of all time.  The really cool thing was they wrote it while on tour for the album “The Bends” in the late 1990s & Foo Fighters were opening for them.  Foo Fighters would do a 10:00 minute sound check, then Radiohead would do a 2 hour sound check arguing about how to arrange the songs.  Go to 15:12 in the video to hear FF drummer Taylor Hawkins talk about opening for Supergrass & Radiohead way back when.

LANGUAGE^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, I have Supergrass’ greatest hits album, on CD.

Expected/anticipated hard rock & metal releases for 2017.  A lot of I don’t know, I don’t really care, I don’t think so, a few I can’t wait, & if there’s a new A Perfect Circle being released, we can wait even longer for the next Tool release.  Maynard probably won’t sing on 2 different albums then he’s supposed to tour with A Perfect Circle.  All of this while maintaining a vineyard?

I fell asleep to “Halestorm” their 3 Eps of cover songs 6 songs on each EP.

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

Being at home while doing nothing but stretching, being limited as to what you can do with a pinched nerve is OK for about a few days or a week, but 2 months is WAY too long.  I’m bored though, I would like to do something productive & when I try to do something I go “Rrrrrrrrrright, that’s why I can’t do this!”  I don’t remember what it was like out of my rehabilitation center, but I don’t think it was this awkward?  I’ve been sitting around doing just about nothing for around 2 months other than very light exercise & stretching.  We’ve got my referral to a physio therapist, were just waiting for them to call when they have an opening.  I’m OK until I stand, then after about 5 seconds of standing everything tightens up.  My foot starts to tingle, the back of my knee gets sore, my calf gets very sore, & my butt cheek gets incredibly sore.

The good thing that has happened is that I’m pretty sure I survived the holidays without packing on the pounds!  More & more of my shirts are fitting me!

25 years ago on January 17th Green Day released the album “Kerplunk”, the predecessor to “Dookie”

 

I guess ‘Audioslave’ are reuniting for one show.

It’s Jonathan Davis’ 48th birthday today.  The singer from Korn.  I can’t tell you much about Korn I was never really into them.  They were HUGE in the late ‘90s & early 2000s though.

“Dust” by Tremonti was the 3rd studio album.  Many people call it the best of the 3 albums.  I’d have to disagree with the “All I Was” or “Cauterize” albums were my personal favourites.  Here is a song from each album in order of release beginning with the album “All I Was”

All n’ all it’s subjective.  I’m not the norm in this case.

 

25 most anticipated TV shows of 2017.  Because I don’t watch enough TV?  Rrrrrright!

That was easy only one I’d like to see is the TV series of “Fargo”.  We don’t get the app for Hulu in Regina, HBO is expensive ($20/month) & we’ve never checked for the FX channel?

 

On March 10th Sub Pop, the Seattle based music label, will release the remixed and expanded reissue of Soundgarden’s Ultramega OK.

It’s available for preorder on iTunes, but I think I’m good this is for you if you like.  I don’t really listen to their 2nd album much, “Louder Than Love”

Jamiroquai are back & cool again.  I only have random songs all from their greatest hits album on iTunes which has over 50 songs I believe.

I think I got very close to the long note at the once out of the 8 or 9 times we rehearsed it & played once?

 

I listened to the “Dystopia” album by “Megadeth” that was released in January of 2016.  I liked it for a while then I did like it & this time around, I’d say it’s not too bad.
