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

Music throughout the weekend.

Metallica, Foo Fighters, Big Wreck, & Alter Bridge.


Friday, Kim picked up my prescription sun glasses on her way home!  No squinting for the first half of a Rider game or any road trips!

My toe feels much better as of Saturday afternoon, at the moment I don’t see a problem doing my exercises this week, unless I do something stupid to it this weekend (which is always a possibility!)

Saturday I slept in like I was on a mission.  I had breakfast for lunch, & made my veggie juice for the week.  Saturday night Kim had to do some work from home & told me I could watch a movie she’s not interested in seeing.  Hello “Venom”!

What a FANTASTIC movie.  He’s a Marvel Comics villain but is not included in the current Marvel Comic Universe aka he has nothing to do with any of the Avengers or character movies.

Quiet Sunday here.  Kim’s doing work from home stuff for about an hour & a half more, then pick up a few groceries.  She helped me hard boil the eggs for the week in our instant cooker.  I usually use a pot of water on the stove top, this was my 2nd time with the instant/pressure cooker.  I think she’s done the laundry, just her stuff to put away, I put my stuff away last night.  We’re almost ready for the week.

My toe might only factor in with the constant pressure while doing pushups?  I guess I’ll find out on Tuesday.

New Harley Quinn movie in production?  They just introduced her character in the TV series “Gotham” I think?  Her name wasn’t mentioned but the character looked a lot like Harley Quinn from the comic books.



A jazz musician out of New Orleans.  Plays piano & sings, I’m guessing he can play multiple instruments?  He was born in 1967.  He’s won 3 Grammy awards & 2 Emmy awards for his role on ‘Will & Grace’, the original series, not the reboot.  He has also appeared in a handful of movies over the years.  He also has or had a daytime talk show.  I watched a few episodes, it was decent & a little different, I don’t watch it now & I’m not sure if it’s still on the air?




1994   SHE


1999   COME BY ME



I have these albums & his 3 Christmas/Holiday albums.  One which has my favourite original Christmas song on it.

I fell asleep to “Harry Connick Jr.” the album of cover songs “Your Songs”

I exercised to “Corrosion of Conformity” the album “In the Arms of God”


Thank goodness it’s Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Weekly exercise total; 0 pushups (finger is still tender), 500 crunches, 1000 leg lifts, 600 tricep pushups, 500 squats, 200 back flexes.


This bruised finger sucks.  Until it stops hurting I’m going to play it safe.  Well, at least it’s not my right/dominant hand.  When I exercise, I go all out.  Not doing my pushups takes less time & it’s disappointing to me.  I’m going to have to build up to 240 a day.  No, I don’t know why, but I don’t look like somebody that does all of this exercise.

Yes I’ve lost quite a bit of weight, but that was never the reason I started exercising like a mad man.  The entire reason for all of this exercise was to be able to “Walk”.  At first I thought I’d be able to walk very soon, by 2015 maybe.  That didn’t happen!  Oh well, maybe one day?

We’re looking at getting a lighter wheelchair for me & pay for it with my disability tax return.  Right now my chair weighs 41 pounds.  The wheelchair we’re looking at weighs 14 pounds, much easier for Kim to lift into our vehicle.

“Will I ever walk?  Yo I don’t know?  Turn off the lights & I’ll glow….”

At least he picked a great bass line to rip off.  Long live “Queen”!  And the other Queen!


When I was in high school I was not part of the “Cool Kids” I had 2 groups I would hang out with, & both involved Timothy Wong.  One group of 4 guys which we called “The Nothings” we weren’t all musicians, jocks, or anything in particular & one group of Tim, myself & 2 girls.  One I’ve known longer than my brother!  I did hang out with 3 or 4 guys on the football team during lunch.  I think it was ’97 or ’98 I started hanging out with Laurie, really good friend like Timothy.  Laurie is a year younger than me.  When I was in University, it was quite common for her to come home after high school & find me reading a text book in her parents’ living room.

I found high school to be more individual clique.  Small groups of 4-8 people.  That being said I also graduated with over around 260 people or so.




If it’s animated, I’ll likely buy the movie to watch it at home multiple times.  They’re not all great, so I’ve either rented it or saw it in the theater.  2 of my 4 or 5 favourite movies are not animated.  I’m not going to bore you with every single trailer from the movies I like, so here’s just a few.  Just because I’m 38 years old doesn’t mean I have to just watch dramas, documentaries, thrillers, & horror movies?


This entire series!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Both of these movies!

Many, many, more…………………………..


A protest song by Bad Religion.  I think there will be many protest songs while Trump is President.



So this study says metal can be harmful, yet a previous study I saw years ago states that metal calms listeners.  So which one’s true?


Live is back with the original lineup & an AWESOME song!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Weird Al’s top 10 rock parodies.



The Toronto Blue Jays’ management is in a tough spot that I don’t envy.  I see a lot of backlash coming from fans of the team after the July 31st trade deadline.  The fans, for the most part, aren’t dumb.  The stadium isn’t sold out nightly like it was in 2016.  C.E.O. & G.M., Mark Shapiro & Ross Atkins, are walking a fine line at the moment.  Fill the seats & build a team to win without blowing the team up.

Truth be told I’d rather have had them ‘Blow up’ the roster when they joined the organization after the 2015 season.  Who can they trade that’s not injured at the moment?  Starting pitcher, Marcus Stroman, gets back into action on Saturday & J.A. Happ is getting old.  They’re not making the playoffs this year, every fan knows that.  Everybody is trade worthy, but I don’t see much in return?  Other than starting pitcher J.A. Happ, who is consistently good there is very little value in any other players, even Marcus Stroman?  Even if he flops on Saturday, there is only Happ to trade & get anything in return.  You could trade Smoak 1B, Pillar CF, Biagini RP, Barnes RP, I think you’d get very little in return for them.  The Jays could potentially have $31,000,000 or $51,000,000 sitting on the bench next year due to 3 players under preforming with HUGE contracts through 2020.

I think they should do what the Toronto Maple Leafs did.  “Hey, were going to suck for a couple of years, until our minor league players get really good”.  At least they’d be honest, since the fans pretty much know it.


Major League Baseball wants to speed up the pace of play since EVERYONE is so focused on their cell phone that they can’t turn it off & focus on something else for 10 minutes let alone 3 hours.  “Oh no!  I’ll die if I don’t have my cell phone!”  Surprise, I loathe cell phones!  “Hey talk to me!  I’m right here in even better resolution!”


I have 2 ideas one might not work for them.

Take away instant replay in the dugout.  Give the field manager 2 challenges, without viewing the replay in the dugout.  They have to call for a replay by the umpires within 10 seconds of the play in question.

This one might not work?  If a player hits a homerun, the umpire ahead of the player should signal the homerun.  Once the signal has been given, offensive base runner(s) should stop & return to the dugout.


The more you share this, the more readers I get.  No, I’m not profiting from this in any way.  I can’t tell who’s reading this but thank you!

I fell asleep to “Paramore” the recently released album “After Laughter”

I exercised to “Rage Against the Machine” the self-titled album


I’m 37 now, high school was a loooooooooooooooooooooong time ago.  Next year, I graduated 20 years ago.  High school isn’t something I think of very often since it was so long ago.  It was very much a clique situation.  I wasn’t a jock, “cool kid”, a part of any labeled group.  I hung out with Timothy Wong, Jonny Amore & Guy McWatt.  When I wasn’t with them, Timothy Wong & I hung out with Faye Wallenberg & Jan Wagner.  Both of those groups were pretty much unlabeled from what I know.  My high school was ENORMOUS!  I think my graduating class of 1998 was 240+?  I know for sure it was over 200 people.  I played in the school band, quit that & joined the choir.  Choir stuck as an extra-curricular activity, then I auditioned for the schools Chamber Choir, I made it!  I never expected to be on the list but I was beyond surprised!  The music program was very well regarded, one of the best in Western Canada, how did I fit into that?

In grade 11 (1997) I figured I’d try out for the baseball team, I made that too!  Another thing that I was shocked with!  I was seriously lacking in self-confidence.  I figured eventually “What’s the worst that can happen?  I might as well give it a shot.”  Achieving those 2 things were both pretty cool to me.

That was the last year I played baseball.  Playing 3B on a city league team & my high school team, I ended up throwing my arm out.  It just ached all of the time.  As much as I would have liked to play the next year, I knew I was done, just when I got really good at striking out VERY consistently.  I had one single in my last 2 seasons!  My batting average must have been .008 over the last 2 years, that’s not a good average at all.  A decent average for a 3B is around .260 or more.  I played baseball from the age of 4 – 17 so 1984-1997.  By 1996 the pitching was too fast for me, good thing I knew how to field decently to play every day.

Those were my 2 hobbies.  That’s why I watch as much baseball as possible & know a bit about music.  I may listen to rock & metal quite a bit but I’m not against orchestral music or listening to one of the many Harry Connick Jr. albums I own.

I can’t tell you where this all comes from.  I come in here, in front of my computron & just write verbal diarrhea.  Whatever pops out.  Stream of consciousness, like one of my favourite books “The Catcher in the Rye”.  I haven’t read that in years.


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


Since the release of “After Laughter” by “Paramore”, I’ve been on an intense Paramore kick, with all 5 of their albums.  This new one sounds completely different & there’s definitely a “Blondie” influence.  I’ve never been hooked on Blondie though.

Just wanted to show that I’m not the only one who hears a “Blondie” influence.

I went to see “The Proclaimers” last year at the casino.  I remember sitting there thinking to myself “I’m probably the only one here wearing a ‘Lamb of God’ T-Shirt that will be back here in 2 days to see ‘I Mother Earth”


With the Manchester bombing & all of the other garbage happening in this world, I’m thankful to wake up the next day, especially with Trump steering, arguably, the most powerful country on earth!  My thoughts go out to those in Manchester who went out to unwind & have a good time.

The world is a VERY UGLY place right now!  It’s only going to get better if we all work together.  Seems like there is hatred around every corner now.  Remember how some little picture said it takes 42 muscles to frown and only 10 or fewer to smile?  I say “Smile & Wave” more at people instead of frowning & shuffling on.  It’s an ugly “dirty world” out there, do what you can to help out someone, it doesn’t have to be a HUGE gesture.  Help an elder cross the street?

I feel sorry for the younger generation that will inherit this mess we’ve collectively screwed up.  At least we get a mood booster from Ellen Degeneres weekly!


Rockers react to the attack in Manchester


I totally agree with Randy Blythe, of Lamb of God! “..the human race must do better than this..”

I’m not against any religion or atheist, believe in whatever you choose or don’t believe at all.  What religious book are they reading?  What ‘God’ would tell followers to kill others?  Why do others have to conform to the same religion as the EXTREMISTS do?  Why aren’t the other religious followers of the same religion doing what the extremists are doing?

I’m not trying to take this latest attack lightly.  If you think about it ISIS are like the carnival game whack-a-mole. They pop up, mess with your day, and go back into hiding before you can get them.  Why?  Because members of ISIS know they did something wrong!

New ‘Stone Sour’ video!!!!!!!!!!!!  Album out June 30th


Apple Music playlist of recent rock releases.  I’ve got both “Highly Suspect” albums & a few on preorder at the moment.  “Stone Sour”, “Royal Blood”, & “Nothing but Thieves”.  I really like the “Muse” single as well.  I bought the single & attached it to my favourite Muse album or else I’d never listen to it as a standalone single.



Why so that there are more people to witness and be injured in a terrorist attack?  You need to think a step ahead of ISIS!  I don’t see adding more troops/security/police doing much unless they know what to look for.  Until our protectors change the game & get ahead, the same thing will continue to happen.   I’m not trying to say they aren’t doing as much as possible at the moment, but whoever they are, it’s time to change their/our approach.




Busy day, lots to do here.  Not much time for the computron or interweb today.  I’ll be on here later.  Mostly I’ll be watching the Blue Jay game today!

This is me during my day, followed by music info because I want the music info as well.  If you don’t want to read it, don’t feel as though you have to, it won’t hurt my feelings.  You can read the cancer stuff, the pop culture stuff or not read it at all, it’s totally your choice & whatever you choose is just fine by me.  So don’t feel pressured to read this.


What did we do this weekend?  NOTHING AT ALL!  I don’t like sitting at home on a Friday or Saturday night but nobody we talked to wanted to play.  My mind says I’m 25 my body is more realistic at 36!  I did go to the Saskatchewan Roughrider game with my dad on Sunday.  I don’t have a handicap seat.  My father pushes my chair up 2 ramps, I go up 10 or 12 steps & our seats are right in front of us, seats 1 & 2.  Next year, in the new stadium should be even better.  About 2 steps from the main level.  The first level is built into the ground, & we’re in the top row seats 1, 2, & 3.  My mother can’t get to where our seats are at the moment so she has sold her ticket to the people beside us but has kept it in her name.  They’ve chosen to sit closer to field level in the new stadium.  Our seats should be easier for my mother to get to, so she’ll be with us!

Nikki Sixx’ advice to his younger self.  Former bassist & founder of Motley Crew & now bassist of Sixx AM.



Clutch vocalist, Neil Fallon, shares his top 10 influential albums



Don’t get me wrong!  I enjoy other stuff also Harry Connick jr., Norah Jones, Nat King Cole, Classical music in general, etc.  It’s very subjective.  A good song is a good song.  My habits just lean towards the rock & metal side of things.

Foo Fighters with Norah Jones

I do like one Metallica album.  The one with the SFSO


The song from “Temple of the Dog” that you haven’t heard.




Monday “In Flames” will be releasing a video, tour & hopefully a preorder date?


I like Neil Young’s music but he has become a crusty old man & I’m getting crusty too.


It’s 2016, I don’t think a protest song works anymore.  If it was a country song billions of people would hear it.


21 years ago Guns n’ Roses released the 2 “Use Your Illusion” albums



Metallica albums ranked worst to first



New drummer for “In Flames”

Yeah, we’ll put it on http://www.youtube.com but don’t share it/promote it?



Finger Eleven shared their new video…..


How cars are changing now in the digital age.



Red Hot Chili Peppers albums ranked


I’m not a huge fan of them.  I own 4 CDs “Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magic” which I never listen to, “By The Way”, “Californication”, those 2 I listen to occasionally, & the double album “Stadium Arcadium”  I listened to it once or twice & it’s been in hiding ever since I bought it.

LANGUAGE!!!!   Yes, I’ve sang this.  Not my style at all!  I prefer listening to this!


I’ll take “The Pretty Reckless” just for the song.  Full album out on October 21st.  The song by “Kaleo” is pretty good, I’ve just never heard of them before, sounds really good though.


Kaleo has 4 or 5 albums, EPs, & singles available.  Similar to Jack Johnson, just slightly heavier?  Gritty?  Nowhere near hard rock or metal.


Godsmack news.


“It’s on www.youtube.com but how dare you embed the link to promote it!”



Yes, I have “The Agonist” on preorder as well, I forgot to mention that before?  Here’s a review of the new album.

Exercises are taking longer as I add more repetitions to a few.  Pushups & squats.


Mondays don’t bother me in the least, I know they’re coming!  I know Thursdays are coming too, but Thursdays are, for me, a type of limbo?  It’s not hump day or Friday, it’s Delaware.


I woke up late, I’ll see how much info I can put in this post.  I have the same problem with this blog again, in that it won’t transfer to Facebook properly as for emails, I’m not sure?


Last Week Tonight with John Oliver


New “Walk off the Earth” video.


8 years ago Metallica released the album Death Magnetic.  Fans were divided on their opinion of the album.  8 years ago on Tuesday, February 5th I passed out at work & was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer, & wasn’t likely to survive.


John Mayer’s album “Continuum” is 10 years old today!


7 facts about the upcoming “Sorceress” album from Opeth



Article/interview with In Flames singer, Anders, regarding the importance of Gothenburg on metal


Preorder for the new studio album should be coming soon?

From a photo on Facebook, “Paramore” is definitely in the studio.


Tool shared a few songs……

10 best rock videos of the year.



Incubus has plans for 2016. I wasn’t even aware they were still around?



Before I even look at this, you know that Nirvana’s “Nevermind” has a 99.99% chance to be number 1.



Goats singing Christmas Carols!!!!



My favourite Christmas album is either “Nat King Cole” or “Harry Connick Jr.” first of 3 Christmas albums.


Will Smith on Jimmy Fallon



Stone Sour covers “Motley Crue” & “Slayer” on 5 song EP


They lost me with “Motley Crue”.


No slag against her, I still have only heard 2 Demi Lovato songs & have no clue how she got to where she is?



I’m all in on the “Climate Change” issue. It’s December 12 in Saskatchewan, I just turned on our heater! Finally there’s a bit of snow on the ground! I missed you winter, welcome back!



Pearl Jam has confirmed 2016 tour!!!!!!!!!!!!



We had a bit of snow either Friday or Saturday morning. Now it’s almost noon on Sunday & it’s “……………melting……………”

Even as a young child this movie & Grease never did anything for me.


10 things about “Megadave” aka Megadeth aka Dave Mustaine



10 death metal vocalists you can understand. I can’t? Out of this selection I only listen to “Opeth” they do death metal & really light intricate music as well. Checking on iTunes, I found out I missed 2 or 3 of their albums? I think I’m OK though I have everything from before & this album.



I’ve checked “Baby Metal” not really my thing



Adele’s new album is HUGE breezed right through 5.000.000 copies already

OK, I’m at 51 or 52 subscribers now you do the work please? If I see this 100 times that’s fine, please spread the word?

Sorry, Sunday’s post was late. Busy day for us!

Give the site a minute or 2 to load all of the links & everything should be fine.

Check it out if you like. What my brother started when I got cancer! No, I’m not biased it’s really good! I don’t do reviews I could but I know everyone doesn’t like the same stuff as much as I do or even like it at all. So I would say at least check out these albums on iTunes.



Look what was released today on iTunes. “Third Ion’s” debut album!


I like going out for breakfast, just not on Sundays. It seems like everybody & their dog go out for Sunday brunch. We did luck out & find a place not busy at all on Sunday. I thought for sure we’d have to wait ½ an hour for a table at 11:00am for 4. We lucked out & went right in with only a few tables full.

After brunch we spent the day at my parents house. Kim sat outside with my mom, dad was doing yard work & I was inside watching the recorded Blue Jay game, aka swearing at the TV. Had supper & left shortly after

I think it’s time to start complaining about the heat! I can only tolerate 15-23C. Anything over that & I start pouring sweat, from EVERYWHERE! If you want to find me this summer, I’ll be naked in front of an A/C vent or in a cold shower! I can’t stand the heat & I’m really fun to be around when I’m hot, ask Kim. Come on polar vortex, I miss you! That’s how I roll, literally!

I’ve got 4 albums coming in June. First up is Barenaked Ladies on June 2nd. Then Tremonti & Muse on June 9th & finally Walk off the Earth on June 16th, all pre-ordered on iTunes.

Tremonti & Muse are the ones I’m most anxious for. Barenaked Ladies were mine & my brother’s first concert in ’92. I was 12 & Mitch was 5 at the time!

This usually a guarantee with a choreographed dance as well at most shows of theirs

10 incredible guitar prodigies, where they’re t now, would easily blow me out of the water on a perfect day for me. I was/am a very slow guitar player, never a fast solo player, just simple rhythm guitar.

Review of The Rolling Stones tour.
10 shows for American soldiers on Memorial Day. Yes, Paramore does a live cover of Foo Fighters.

I tend to agree with Jack White. You don’t have to tour, it is expensive & musicians don’t make much money if any from a newly released album. You also don’t have to release anything unless you want the world to hear it, you’re making music that YOU want to hear. This cheap/free music will catch up to almost everyone if something drastic doesn’t happen soon. Musicians can’t afford to go on tour everywhere so why should they bother releasing new material? They’ll get a 9-5 job & play music at home after work & on the weekends.

Fear Factory are back & plan on releasing a new album. I had a ton of their albums before I was diagnosed with cancer that I downloaded for free. All of their stuff sounds the same to me. I deleted all of it very fast.

I like “American Ninja Warrior” it’s more of a sports entertainment show & an actual competition. You win or lose. You aren’t chosen by a group of “judges” on a subjective talent show & no points for pretty.

Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell plans 4th solo album. Here’s a song from each of his 1st 2 solo albums. I’ve never heard the 3rd album & I only own the first one.

Trent Reznor credited for music consultant on “Batman : Arkham Knight Asylum” video game

I don’t consider music a competition. Personally if I had my choice of these 2 bass players, it would be Flea of the (Red Hot Chili Peppers)

No disrespect to Flea, I just prefer Robert DeLeo from STP.

Songs I like. “Harry Connick Jr.”

I also have 3 Christmas albums of his. I don’t put them on my iPod until the holidays.

I loved story tellers, now Ed Sheeran is bringing it back!!!

Megadeth aka MegaDave news

50 greatest rock albums of the 2000s according to Kerrang magazine. I think I was having a nightmare & saw Limp Bizkit in that list? I guess it was a successful album?

A little Tremonti teaser.

NOBODY in a war ever takes innocent casualties in to consideration, that’s very telling of ANY government & that’s another reason I don’t vote! The losers in an election would likely stay the course & not ruffle any feathers.

Anybody want to go to Dave Grohl’s birthday on Saturday?

Robert Trujillo (Metallica bassist) has been quiet & try’s not to cross band members.

Record label has many metal bands releasing new material this year. Lot’s of this is way too heavy for me!

Studio footage of “Anthrax”

Roots of “grunge” set by Black Sabbath

Axemen of Sweden documentary clip.

The 1st album of this is probably my favourite Led Zeppelin album

I like this song, but I used to get crap for liking Fall Out Boy.

All of these award show & contest shows are just over hyped popularity contests to me. As much as I like Harry Connick Jr. American Idol has improved with him as a judge, but it’s still nothing more than an elementary school talent show. I left the room last night while Kim watched it.

How are Foo Fighters starting the year?

I like beer!

12 music documentarys to look forward to in 2015

Vote for your favourite rock album of 2014. Another popularity contest……

I checked out “Islander” who are in the lead in the vote & they aren’t too bad! Heavier than I expected.

I guess Eddie Murphy is back in the music biz.

New “System of a Down” album may happen?

10 best Download Festival performances according to Kerrang magazine.

Couldn’t tell you much about “Papa Roach” after they hit the BIG time with this song?
Heard this song haven’t thought of them since.

Big Wreck just shared this video on facebook. This is from a demo called “Mama” Ian Thornley made between the 2 “Thornley” albums.

Another site to stream your music.

I prefer to own my music, that’s why I use iTunes for now. I don’t know how actors get paid for TV shows and movies only released on Netflix? They’re putting stuff on there so we use it for now, I still prefer to own the actual DVD/blu-ray. Free music I don’t really like the idea of streaming music. It’s fine if you want to do so. I use iTunes since it’s what the label/management agrees to, but still the artist kind of gets back handed on an album purchase, that I don’t like. I know that when I spend money on iTunes for whatever I never have to worry about it going away. Sure I could find a torrent site & download whatever for free, I just don’t like the idea of it.

“When my Heart Finds Christmas” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2G-dTthydW8 1993 release


I really enjoy his music! He has improved American Idol quite a bit. He’s funny, gives constructive criticism and calls out people looking for their 15 minutes of fame in the first round of auditions if they know they can’t sing! He’s made American Idol fresh and different in a good way!


I say that, but at the same time it feels as though contestants think American Idol, The Voice, The Sing-off, The X Factor and Americas Got Talent are the only ways to become famous. Talent in whatever way is subjective for everyone. I’m on a Megadeth/Iron Maiden kick right now. Is everybody else? Probably not! Does everyone like the remaining contestants on whatever show you’re watching? I don’t have a clue what dancing is good or bad, so I don’t watch dancing shows and I rarely agree with the “judges” on any singing shows that I try to avoid if possible. Why? Because it bothers me if the person I like doesn’t win. I know who’s album I’d buy, and it’s not always the person who “wins”.
