I fell asleep to “Big Wreck” the album “The Pleasure & the Greed” released in 2001.

I exercised to “Probot” the only album, all instruments played by Dave Grohl then he sent copies to his favourite metal singers to do the vocals.  Album release was in 2004.

 

400 crunches, 400 pushups, 400 leg lifts, 160 back flexes, 20 minutes of planking.  Next week I’ll try to add some triceps exercise.

Finishing with 5 minutes of planking, then my 100 pushups at the end of my exercise is easily the hardest thing to do.  Once I finish my pushups, at the end of my routine, I roll over on my side to breathe deeply so there’s no pressure on my lungs.  I don’t like exercising before I do it, but afterwards I feel like I’ve achieved something.  I feel better!  All of those times I’d hear people say something like “Oh, I feel great!”  “Oh, this is the best feeling ever!”  I always thought they were a little “Crazy”.  Before I exercise, I try very hard to procrastinate, but the promise of breakfast works as a really good motivator!

When I moved from the Pasqua hospital to the Wascana Rehabilitation Center in 2009, I went through a deep depression.  I constantly cried & apologized to Kim.  I always felt as though I did something wrong to have cancer.  I know it wasn’t my fault.  When everybody was calling me a “hero”, I bought into the hype & lashed out at others.  No, that’s nowhere near who I really am.  I don’t like to be called a “hero” or “victim”.  I’m in the middle, as I see it.  I got VERY lucky & I’m alive.  I’m a normal guy that got really lucky, surrounded by many friends & family members.  I’m alive.

 

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

 

Little bit of my struggles with Apple.  Without exaggerating the number, I think I’ve made 8-10 calls to customer support since September began.  I have been polite throughout this time with them.  My problems baffle the customer service people though.  They help me fix 1 problem eventually & 2 days later another issue appears.  I’ve even “downloaded” stuff through the Apple Music streaming site that they use as a band aid when they have no other solution, even Apple Music is now screwed up!  To say that I’m frustrated doesn’t even touch the tip of the iceberg!  I’m going to leave it as is & ask if Kim will field a call for me at some point.

ASCOT ROYALS

“Ascot Royals” opened for “Big Wreck” in February.  I wasn’t really expecting anything.  I thought it would be a “Ho hum” moment, another ½ hour before “Big Wreck” hit the stage.  I’m SO glad I go to every show in time for the opening act!  They were surprisingly really good.  They live in Ontario, but I think the singer mentioned that they were all immigrants?  Don’t quote me on that.

 

They have 1 full album out & a 7 song EP on iTunes, I assume they’re on streaming sites as well.  The full album was released in 2012, the EP was released earlier this year.

 

I can confirm that “Muse” & “Halestorm” are both in studio working on their new albums.  I saw photos of both in the studio!  Separately of course.

I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the album “Concrete & Gold” yes I got it last night, I’m really not sure about this album.

I exercised to “INXS” their “Greatest Hits” & as most times silence after the album is done.

500 crunches, 500 leg lifts, 500 pushups, 200 back flexes, & 25 minutes of planking.  I check Brewster’s food & water dishes, then exercise, eat, then shower & make myself look respectable.  I know what you’re thinking “Does he just wake looking that bad?”  No, I wake up far worse. It takes quite a while to polish this turd.

All of this exercising does make a noticeable difference when I practice walking!  Not only that but I’ve dropped 46 pounds, slowly.  I eat better now & I drink around 2.5 liters of water.  I no longer crave sugar either!  Friday & Saturday are the only evenings I drink alcohol, usually 2 or 3 drinks each night or more if it’s a special occasion.  Then when Sunday comes I don’t touch any alcohol until Friday!  This not only makes me feel better & more alert, it helps out our bank account.  There’s even been a few weekends that I just don’t feel like drinking alcohol.

5 days a week I eat the same thing for breakfast & lunch, supper is commonly healthy as well.

I may weigh less than I ever have but all of my fat went straight to my belly aka a lot of my T-Shirts still don’t fit.  “I’ll have to do cardio more often”-said no one ever!

 

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

Don’t forget Foo Fighters’ album “Concrete & Gold” is out now for all to enjoy!  I’m a HUGE Foo Fighters fan. Was I listening to The Beach Boys or FF last night? Initial awesome songs & some miss’. I like The Beach Boys, in small doses. Foo Fighters had a plethora of harmonies on that album though. I listened to it twice last night, I’ll have to sit down & give it a good listen.

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

Dave Grohl audio/video interview with Lars Ulrich of Metallica

 

“Prophets of Rage” is also out today!  I like “Rage Against The Machine”, but I’ll wait to hear it all before I buy “Prophets of Rage”.

 

There’s also a (Deluxe) (Remastered) version of Radiohead’s album “OK Computer” with 11 bonus songs.  Their 2nd & 3rd album for me, are absolute necessities!  As for this remastered bonus version, I’d buy a few songs but I’m good with the Radiohead albums I own on CD.  There’s a band who’s first 3 albums are really good!  I was so excited for the release of their 4th album “Kid A” which turned out to be a HUGE disappointment for me.  They kept a lot of fans & likely lost a lot of fans but gained a lot as well.

2nd album

3rd album

The first Radiohead album is good, it’s more of a “grunge” album though.

 

Wait, wait, wait!  “Steel Panther” waited 2 decades for hair metal to be all but gone, then released their first album?

First album 2011?  REALLY!  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Who the heck listens to this?  Oh right, Rydell!  Great guy, but how did we ever play in the same band?

 

A phone for $1000?  Will it call or receive phone calls?  That’s all I need.  $15 at Walmart for a land line phone, I’m good with that!

I will never understand the adoration most Alter Bridge fans have for the album & song “Blackbird”.  It’s subjective like all art is I guess.

I fell asleep to “Paramore” again the album “After Laughter”, followed by a 1970s rock compilation called “Riff Rock High”

I exercised to “Corrosion of Conformity” the album “Deliverance”, followed by “Alice Cooper” the album “Paranormal”

 

Yes, I’m getting tired of talking about him & watching CNN like it’s going out of style.  He’s on a 17 day vacation.  I’m sure I have never taken 17 days off in a row since I had a summer break in elementary school!  How do you lead one of the most powerful countries in the world & just relax for 17 days?  Does this mean American’s get 17 days off too?  Crap, he still has Wi-Fi & his cell phone, be ready twitter followers.  I guess there are some renovations going on in “…that dump…” now as well (The White House according to Donnie).

Stephen Colbert nailed it saying “Change the locks while you’re at it”.  Hahaha! I feel sorry for the American public!  Nothing but bad news for our neighbors to the south.  Didn’t turn out the way most of us wanted.  But just like a random mass shooting, what ya gonna do?

With Donnie on vacation for so long, I hear there’s a term position available at the White House!  Hillary, Bernie you have plans this month?

 

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

 

My T-Shirts decided to turn to dust all at the same time?  I’ve never owned a Royal Blood shirt though?  I should have got one when I saw them in 2015.

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

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.

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

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I fell asleep to “In Flames” the album “Reroute to Remain” followed by “Dream Theater” the album “Black Clouds & Silver Linings”

I exercised to “Halestorm” the 3 Eps of cover songs on shuffle.

 

12 years of marriage flew by pretty fast, despite the 4.5 year pause.  I must be doing something right, she’s still here…………………….maybe it’s Brewster?  We started dating in April 4th 2002.  We went to Boston Pizza for lunch, she had lasagna I had a buffalo chicken sandwich.  We met at SIAST.  We were very casual friends from my start date of September 2001 until we started dating in 2002.

Woke up Monday at 7:00 am, came into the living room & turned on the lights.  Went to the kitchen & filled Brewster’s food & water bowls.  I thought to myself “Hey it’s pretty cool in here, with a window open & a small fan running all night!”  Then I looked at the thermostat.  Sad state of affairs when +25 Celcius feels cool to you!

As of Tuesday, the A/C is fixed.  No more ‘hot exercise’!  I’m the annoying person that can’t stand the heat!  If it’s hot outside it’s likely hotter in here if the A/C isn’t working, and I’m waiting for clouds & a polar vortex.

I know what my body can & can’t do & more.  My back was sore for quite a while because of the squats & my wheelchair cushion was over inflated or completely flat.  This wasn’t my first time at this rodeo.  Even in Wascana my occupational therapist had to re-inflate my seat.  I know the crunches weren’t the reason as much as I know the chemicals at work caused my cancer!  When someone tells me I can’t or shouldn’t do something that just makes me want to prove that person wrong!  But I’ll listen.  Thanks for the advice those of you who offered it!  I haven’t been planking yet, figure a week of crunches followed by a week of planking?

 

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

I fell asleep to “Walk off the Earth” the album “Sing it all Away”, followed by “Trivium” the album “Ascendency”

Just a lot of stretching this week to “Pentatonix” their new EP of covers “Vol. IV”

YAY, multiple doctor appointments set for me.  MRI, Cancer clinic, “sedatives” for the MRI (I’m extremely claustrophobic), blood work, & hopefully a cortisone shot as well.  Pretty much routine stuff other than the MRI & cortisone shot.  I hope to breeze through all of this, & get back to exercising!

A bit of a mixed up day.  My regular doctor is having surgery & is off until May.  I need to get a prescription from him before then for my MRI.

 

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

I see no Tool album in the near future?  Tool is touring & then A Perfect Circle plans to tour & record.  There’s only so much singer Maynard James Keenan can do.  I assume his 3rd band (Puscifer) & his vineyard are taking a backseat at the moment?

24 years ago Thursday, Tool released their first full length album “Undertow”.  Before that was a live EP and there has been 4 full length albums up to the 2006 release “10,000 Days”.  We are now on our 11th year of waiting for a follow up to “10,000 Days”.  As fans we’ve waited 3,747 + a few leap year days for a new release from Tool.  This means we have a few more decades to wait if the album is coming in “10,000 Days”!

Sorry, just found a new band, & they are quite new.  They’re called “Halflives”, just thought I’d keep you posted.  1 album out next Friday, & 3 singles.  All available on iTunes.

They remind me of “Paramore”.  Fairly pop but just a bit heavier, at least that’s how I’d describe them.

 

I got “Pentatonix” & “The Watchmen” this morning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Both are FANTASTIC!!!!!!

I fell asleep to “Radiohead” the album “The Bends”, followed by “Halestorm” the album “Into the Wild Life”

I exercised to “Blameshift” the album “Secrets”

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

When I was going my therapy, my hands/palms would get very sweaty, especially during my Occupational therapy.  When I would do something simple, my hands would shake & sweat terribly.  I didn’t have much strength at all.  I was doing my therapy putting plastic pipes together (more like the idea of using it as legos for fine motor skills).  I never want to drop anything, so my hands started sweating ASAP since I was so nervous.  Physio, occupational, & exercise therapy were all scheduled for 45 minutes to an hour each.  The vast majority of my therapy was 17 hours a week.  My therapists doubled me for quite a while.  It worked though!

They may not be the tremendous numbers they were before, but I could feel it on my abs this morning.  This with my exercise feels normal to me.  The last 4 ½ months just felt like I was absolutely useless, so this is a very welcome change.  I guess it has to do with not being so dependent on others.  Everyone has been really good about taking me to wherever, I just don’t like to be a “burden” to others.

There aren’t even many releases I’m holding out for?  Other than Pentatonix & Linkin Park, I only know for certain that there are a few albums coming from Queens of the Stone Age, Stone Sour & Royal Blood.  “In a galaxy far, far away” someone has a new Tool album?

The other 3 supposed arrivals have no new material out yet!
