I fell asleep to “Haley Williams” the album “Petals for Armor” EP, followed by “Royal Blood” the album “Royal Blood”

 

I still felt a bit nauseous Wednesday but went on with my exercises.  I’ve managed to keep food & water down since Sunday but as of Wednesday I still had the chills followed by intense sweating.  I think this climate change thing is SERIOUSLY messing with me.  Is it gonna be hot or cold out?  It’s February in Regina it should be -15 Celcius not +1 Celcius.  I can’t wait until its +12 Celcius outside so I can light up the A/C like nobody’s business, sit in the dark, play guitar, and watch baseball.

Really hadn’t recovered from being sick last weekend.  Thought I’d make it through the week though.  Woke up late am Thursday had breakfast & went back to bed.  Nothing in me at all.  I figured I’d rather be productive than just going through the motions & say “Good enough”.  Quality over quantity.

The guitar I ordered is another example of quality over quantity.  This video shows the difference between a lesser expensive PRS guitar & a top of the line PRS.  The one I ordered is somewhere in the middle of that price range, but still made at the American factory in Maryland.  I could have bought 1 mass produced $700 guitar & maybe a couple more in the distant future, or get a very nice, well made, fairly expensive guitar.  I went with the quality of the product here.  I have a few $700 guitars & they’re great, I have no complaints about them.  If this is going to be my last guitar purchase, I might as well go off with a bang!

I’m ecstatic about the guitar coming in April, bad timing though.  Brewster just got back from the veterinarian Wednesday night & now we see how much money we can squeeze out of our rock.  Vet bills, heart medication for the rest of his life, taxes, guitar, more vet bills, dog teeth removed, etc.  Yet our house is still for sale & that possibility is always looming in the background.  If I could cancel my guitar to free up some cash it would be done already.  Where is the money going to come from?  We’ll space it out as much as we can over the next 3 or 4 months.  His dental work isn’t a rush, but his heart medication is.

Breaking news, Thursday afternoon, regarding my guitar order, a blessing in disguise really.  Got an update moments ago.  My guitar has been delayed until late August.  Sounds like they have to make more guitars to fill the orders?  I expected a delay after hearing Paul Redd Smith saying they were flooded with orders in January at the trade show in California.  What this means for us is, more time for us to spread out our cash over a few more months.  Ended up being the best outcome for the situation.

Woke up late again today.  Had breakfast & I’m still aching & tired.  I’s hoping this is just my body’s way of saying “Too much!  I’m not used to this & I need a break”.  I’d like to get back on track next week.  I’ve even been too lazy to pick up a guitar & play with any productive effort.  I messed around on my acoustic for a bit since it weighs the least.  Waste of a week!

 

New “Trivium” April 24th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Is it just me or does that guitar he’s playing on the couch look familiar?  Oh, hello, it’s directly to my left!

“Lamb of God” May 8th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I didn’t even realize the “Haley Williams” EP was out already!!!!

I fell asleep to “Metallica” the album “Master of Puppets”

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

I learned a good chunk of the Foo Fighters song on the 7 string & I’ll tackle the main riff & verse of the Metallica song shortly.  I’m doing most of this by ear & memory.  I’m sure some of it will need to be looked up.

 

Here’s the Canadian Red Cross website if you’d prefer to donate please.  My birthday is over, I did extend the Facebook donations until Feb. 13th though!

I could easily sit around & complain about anything.  I’ve been there & done that.  Nobody is about to swoop in & make everything OK.  So it is what it is.  I’m in a wheelchair, I have an iPatch.  My eye has to fix itself, it’s a nerve problem that I went to see a specialist about & she couldn’t guarantee anything.  I’m in a wheelchair, nobody else can fix that for me.  My therapists gave me the tools & knowledge of what to do & got me to a point where it was up to me.  Everybody can help & does help, I have to put their knowledge & assistance into action & apply it.

Here’s an example.  When I go walking I have to think about am I standing up straight, are my heels hitting the floor first, is my stride too big, are my feet the proper distance apart, am I kicking my walker, etc.  I’m at a point where Kim doesn’t have to hold me but she’s there to help me make sure I’m remembering to do everything properly.

When I do stairs it’s completely different.  She’s there to make sure I don’t fall.  Nothing is perfect about my form, it’s about building my leg muscles to walk up & down the stairs properly.  I tried doing stairs with the railing & a cane once, that didn’t work out very well.  I’ll try it again a different way until I can get into a decent form and practice that.  Nobody is going to do that for me, they can suggest other ways to approach it, I have to try it & see if it’s a possibility.

We live on the 3rd/top floor of a condo.  There was an evening the elevator wasn’t working & I had tickets to see “Big Wreck” in concert.  I was standing at the top of the stairwell holding the railing & Brewster’s leash.  An older woman came in to use the stairs.  She had a broken foot & was complaining about the elevator & how it affected her evening.  She made it down the stairs & I’m sure it hurt and wasn’t easy.  I could hear her talking to Kim at the bottom of the stairs who had carried my wheelchair down for me.  Kim told the lady she was carrying my chair.  “Oh!  He’s in a wheelchair?  That’s his?”  I wasn’t going to miss “Big Wreck” because of a broken elevator.  Whatever plans the lady had, she wasn’t about to sit around and complain about her broken foot and the broken elevator.  We both had things that required more effort to do than we originally thought.  The world’s not perfect, we all have to deal with something.

I didn’t even think of this on the day, I’m editing this on Thursday right now.  February 5th 2008 was a Tuesday.  That was the day I passed out at work.  I was a printing press operator.  I had nearly finished setting up what I think was my 2nd printing job of the day, so it would have been in the morning.  Two of my co-workers came to see me as I was making some adjustments to the colour.  They both commented on how pale I looked.  I felt fine & thought nothing of it.  Within 5 minutes I had everything ready to go & I laid down on the catwalk of the press.  I knew something wasn’t right.  I called for one of my co-workers, who had taken over my press for me, to call 911 for me.  The Paramedics were there ASAP, I was still conscious.  I couldn’t stand up to get into the wheelchair they had for me.  They wheeled me out the front door on a gurney into the back of the ambulance.  Somebody had called Kim at work.  She came into the back of the ambulance just before we left from my work.  As she entered the ambulance I said to her “Don’t worry sweetie, everything will be OK” then I lost consciousness as soon as I finished the sentence.  From what I’m told I was talkative until I went into emergency surgery for the bleeding mass in the back of my head.  4 or 5 weeks after 2 days of 3 brain surgeries, I came out of a coma that the doctors said I had a %5-%15 of ever coming out of.  The story’s not done yet, but that’s how it started.

Well Kim & my in-laws swooped in & took care of my oops.  She ordered the Epiphone Matt Heafy custom 7 string Les Paul for my birthday.  It came in on Tuesday and she gave it to me that evening after supper & helping me with stairs.  What she said to me was the best gift I could receive.  She told me she was proud of me & how much work I’ve been putting in to my recovery!

After almost 4 hours of playing the 7 string on Wednesday I can confirm my suspicion…..IT IS ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!

I’ve ordered a PRS guitar already that should be here in mid-April.  No we’re not rich.  I saved up by asking only for money, a watch, & a few minor guitar related things for Christmas & my birthday.  Kim of course helped me save as well.  Her overtime cash was spent on the 7 string.  I was constantly kicking myself about it when it went out of production 2 or 3 days after I placed my order for the PRS.  That is the end of my guitar purchasing.  I have an acoustic guitar & once the PRS comes in that will make 5 electrics.  All different body styles, colours, sounds, & tunings other than the 2 Les Paul body styles & 2 black Epiphones, 1 is the 7 string.  Yes I play all of them for as long as I can after my exercise every day.  If it’s ever a possibility to rent a Dave Grohl signature 335 Gibson hollow-body, a Chris Shiflett signature Telecaster deluxe (that I’d likely fall in love with), or if I ever see a Telecaster with a single coil pickup in the neck & a humbucker pickup at the bridge, those would be my rentals.  I love Foo Fighters so the Chris Shiflett (lead guitarist of Foo Fighters) Telecaster would be AMAZING to try!

If they made them & I couldn’t even imagine spending over $5000 on a guitar, I would have ordered a full on PRS McCarty 594 in a semi-hollow body.  This guitar, but semi-hollow!  This is likely just over $6000 in Canada already!  This one does 16 pickup combinations, the one I ordered will do 6 and it is semi-hollow.

I am more than happy with what I have now!  Even playing one of these is a VERY distant pipe dream!  I used to play guitar & after more than an 11 year hiatus due to cancer, I’ve started again & forgot how much I missed it.  I’m SO lucky to be able to get my life back after surviving brain cancer.

There’s a photo of me with the guitar & a video of me doing stairs, just to exercise my legs.  Tried doing stairs with a cane & railing, I’m not there yet, I need more strength & practice.

 

HOLY CRAP!  A  TOOL Lego set!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

New Lamb of God album out on May 8th

Also great news to hear is that Megadeth front man, Dave Mustaine, is cancer free after a battle with throat cancer.

Another couple of tunes from the upcoming album by Haley Williams of Paramore.  I would think by now she’d have a release date announced?

I have an appointment at the cancer clinic in a few months.  I’m SO ready to either stop going there or request a different doctor.  Every time I think of it, the first thing that pops into my mind is “I’m a month over 11 years cancer free.  How many more years do I have to keep coming here?  Is she going to bluntly call me fat……again?”  Needles don’t bug me, an MRI can depending which machine I’m in.  Apparently CT scans aren’t good enough for the substitute doctor I saw last time.  I find that odd, other doctors have no problem with a CT scan.

I’ll cause a scene & blatantly refuse to enter the MRI machine at the hospital.  “Here are some ear plugs since it’s pretty noisy in there.  Here’s a bean bag to throw if something goes wrong.”  Then they shove me into a tiny tube, on my back, & it’s not big enough for my shoulders.  If it’s that machine, it ain’t happening.  I’m EXTREMELY claustrophobic, and they also tell me to not move my head for the next 10 minutes.  Easier said than done when you have nothing to look at.

I can deal with needles & noise.  I listen to LOUD music.  The inside of any MRI machine is INCREDIBLY loud despite the required ear plugs.  What I can’t stand is an EXTREMELY RUDE doctor, having to be shoved in an incredibly small tube, & having to put on a mask over my entire face that is so close that it squishes my nose.

I’m 6’1” and probably just under 230 pounds.  I hadn’t seen my cousin in over a decade and had just recently met her common-law husband.  I asked them “How much do you think I weigh?  Any number, I won’t be offended.”  They went with 185.  I haven’t been that weight since I graduated high school!  At the time I was 240.  If I get told I’m “fat” from a 5’0” doctor again, I might have to pull a Jennifer Lopez on her “Listen up you little bitch!”  Grow a foot, exercise daily, eat what I eat, and say that again to my face.  I’d never be that rude/aggressive/blunt with a doctor trying to help me, it would be funny in the proper context though.

I’ve started playing guitar again.  You would think I’d get frustrated at times, not the case.  I can’t play up to the tempo of a song but I’m very, very close.  I can physically do everything I used to do on guitar, it’s just a matter of speeding up my left hand & arm, which is normal I guess?  I’ve always thought that playing an acoustic guitar is more difficult than an electric that will mask the mistakes through the amplifier.  I’ve picked 2 songs to learn and it’s gonna be a lot of acoustic guitar learning of those 2 songs.  My brother is a guitar wiz & will help me get things back to the proper tempo.  Once I get those down on acoustic guitar.  I would think other stuff I used to play will fall into place after a few times through a song.

I do find relearning guitar more difficult than the first time around.  Probably in part to being comfortable in a wheelchair with a guitar & having so many issues with the left side of my body being weaker.  I am learning new scales/patterns on the fret board & finger exercise to build up those muscles though.  There’s no easy way to go about it, much like my exercise.  The only thing that will make it better is practice & repetition.

I think a lot of that is lost now.  A lot of people seem to crave instant gratification.  I’m guilty of it too.  I’d like to have my birthday guitar by now since my birthday was on Thursday.  It won’t get here until at least mid-April without delays.  Lots of people have a cell phone.  That’s fine, a personal choice if you ask me.  Many people have their email & social media accounts on their phones.  Does anyone ever wonder what it was like before cell phones were all the rage?  You’d send an email & wait until that person had finished school or work for the day & would eventually check their email.  I know I would find a cell phone annoying.  Kim has a cell phone, when she’s home & leaves it on the couch to do something elsewhere & it bings/vibrates the entire couch, it drives me nuts.  I’ve gotten used to it, but it still bothers me.

If it ever gets to the point that land lines are abolished, I’ll get a cell phone but nobody will like the way I use it.  I’ll tell the salesperson when I activate it “I want it to only be able to accept & deliver phone calls please.  No texts, email, social media, photos, or apps please.  Phone calls and nothing but.”  It will come with me for emergencies only.  When I’m out it will be turned off unless needed, when I’m home & unoccupied I’ll turn it on.  If I get a text, I’ll call you back when I’m free.

 

There’s already quite a few albums out or about to come out this year,

“Haley Williams”

“Pearl Jam”

“Clint Lowery”

“Testament” that I’m not sure about yet.  I think a lot of their fans are Jewish, most fans seem to prefer the Old Testament?

“Mark Morton” guitarist from “Lamb of God” who are done recording their new album.

I was watching a “Trivium” demo, I watched and saw him playing the now discontinued 7 string & I thought “I could play that rhythm part if I had a 7 string guitar.”  I must be a sucker for punishment.

I always thought it would be more difficult.  That’s as difficult as the “Metallica” rhythm parts I used to play & sing to when I had no clue as to what I was doing!!??!!  I was listening to Corey Beaulieu on the right instead of Matt Heafy playing the Epiphone on the left when I was listening to the albums. All of that being said, Matt Heafy is a very well rounded guitar player & capable of much more.  Sorry about the guitar reference, it’s a passion & my favourite hobby.  You’ll miss the guitar talk once baseball starts.  What’s worse than watching baseball?  Reading about it!

Kim’s been quite busy at work this week.  So there was no walking or stairs this week.  That’s OK with me, I like to get my exercise done in the morning so I have the rest of the day to practice guitar or catch up on some TV from the night before.  Do other stuff & not think about doing more exercise.

I turned 40 yesterday & our dog is 14 today.  He’s definitely showing signs of age but every once in a while he grabs a toy & plays like a pup again for 10 minutes & again when Kim comes home from work.  She comes in the door, takes of her shoes & jacket, gets down on her knees, Brewster bolts as far away as possible and bunny hops as fast as he can into her arms & almost knocks her over.  It’s just fun to watch 12 pounds of fur get that excited!

I usually do absolutely nothing on my birthday since I’ve been home.  Not this year though!  Weekends are for resting, recovering, & getting ready for the following week…& a small group of friends over to celebrate tomorrow after a dinner out.  I did sleep in until 8:00 am then laid in bed while on the phone with my parents & cousin in the Dominican Republic on my birthday.

When do you actually start to feel older?  Sure, some things are harder or impossible to do but I assume that’s mostly the lasting effects of brain cancer.  In my mind I’m still in my mid-20s, without having gone through cancer.  I know there are things I wouldn’t be able to do now that I did when I was in my 20s.  I certainly don’t feel older!

I’ve been learning, practicing, & applying different types of scales to my guitar playing.  I’ve also been relearning how to do all of that in a wheelchair.  That’s the weirdest part of all, being comfortable with a guitar in a wheelchair while controlling my left arm as I play.  My birthday gift to myself, along with help from many others is the fancy PRS guitar that won’t get here until at least mid-April.  I ordered it earlier this month before the company had even started production on the 2020 models.

https://www.prsguitars.com/index.php/electrics/model/s2_custom_22_semi_hollow_2020

The colour/finish should look VERY similar to this with different electronics.  This would likely cost much more than the already expensive model I’m getting.

 

Another great song from “Haley Williams”!  No release date yet that I know of.

I’m very anxious for this album, “Pearl Jam”, “Lamb of God”, “Trivium”, “Megadeth”, & of course “Foo Fighters”

Today is Kim’s BIG day at work.  Her big photo shoot at work.  She’s been working REALLY hard at this.  She has put in a lot of overtime, especially in the last 2 weeks & she’s been editing practice photos at home on her laptop.  I couldn’t be more proud of her!  She’ll have a great day, she has definitely put the work in for this project which should lead to bigger things for her.  I hope this doesn’t lead to more work/overtime.  She’s been coming home completely exhausted.

I was bummed for too long about it!  It’s in the past & I can’t change it.  Time to “LIVE IN THE NOW”

I found myself looking at other 7 string guitars over the weekend, but none of them had all of the same things in one guitar.  In the end it was a fruitless endeavor.  Everything looks like the maker is trying too hard to make it look like a ‘metal’ guitar or the guitar would only have one aspect I was looking for.

https://www.long-mcquade.com/22227/Guitars/Electric_Guitars/Gibson/Matt_Heafy_Les_Paul_Custom_7_String_Electric_Guitar.htm

I can’t complain, things are good!  I’ve gotten over my guitar blunder, now only time will mend the last little bit of my broken heart.  The one I ordered can’t get here soon enough, I’m more than a wee bit excited for its arrival in April!!!!!  Actually I’m FREAKIN’ EXCITED!!!!!

https://www.prsguitars.com/index.php/electrics/model/s2_custom_22_semi_hollow_2020

That PRS guitar goodness coming in a couple of months & in a couple of weeks I get to watch some Toronto Blue Jays spring training baseball.  Air conditioning, baseball, & CFL football.  That’s my trifecta of every summer.  The heat & I don’t get along.  If you want to find me in the summer, you’ll likely find me in the house, with the blinds closed, watching baseball, with the A/C on to 22 Celcius.  If Kim wasn’t cold at that temperature the A/C would be set at 20 Celcius.

Kim & I, my brother & sister-in-law (Mitch & Rachel), took my Grandparents out for lunch on Sunday.  We had a really good visit over lunch & coffee.  The restaurant wasn’t very busy yet, so it was a nice quiet spot to visit for a couple of hours.

I was getting a little tired from my exercise.  I completely crashed on the weekend, ended up sleeping most of the day on Friday after my exercise in the EARLY morning.  We were all set on Saturday to get some house chores done, and then the power went out for 3 hours shortly after we were all set to go.  I threw in the towel & crawled back into bed.  Ended up being a broken weekend for us.  Now after the weekend, I feel good & back on track again.  I’ll call it a little hiccup for now.

Just so we’re all clear here, there won’t be Facebook photos here all of the time.  I know that not everyone is fond of social media.  There might be a little burst in the next few weeks but I’ll let you know when a photo appears on Facebook.

In other news, I came across some guy who was totally against the new “Meatless Meatball Sub at Subway” fine with me.  He stated that it’s “made with chemicals that cause cancer” fair enough.  I had cancer in 2008 before the meatless craze.  What he failed to mention is that alcohol, tobacco, burnt food, etc. are all said to cause cancer & they’re all legal.  In the end is it not up to each person to decide what they put in their body?  I drink alcohol, I eat meatless stuff & real meat, drink dairy milk since my family have friends that run a dairy farm.  Eat what you want, stand up for whatever cause you like, maybe you’ll swing some people to your side?  Don’t be afraid to form your own opinion though.  I have opinions that others don’t agree with either.

You’re afraid of GMOs that’s fine with me, there’s science supporting both sides of that argument, more so for the use of GMOs.  You’re allowed to choose how you live your life as is anyone else.  Social media is eye opening in that way.  People can be set in a certain state of mind & that can be both good & bad.

I couldn’t care less, the meatless/beyond meat stuff is fine as is the other stuff.  For me, it’s about reasonable/healthy moderation.

 

“Haley Williams” of “Paramore” is releasing a solo album, the first single is stuck in my head constantly & it’s FANTASTIC!

Here is a taste of the last “Paramore” album if you forgot.
