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

I fell asleep to “Jimmy Eat World” the album “Bleed American”

I exercised to “The Beatles” the album “Number 1” all of their songs that hit number 1.

 

I didn’t get to bed as early as I had hoped Sunday night.  Monday I slept in later than I’d have liked.  I like to get up & get things done ASAP.  It tends to get warm in here the later I get up to exercise.  Exercising at noon is something I never do for a reason.  I’m typically done my exercise by 10-11:00 am, if not earlier.  I usually get up by 8:00 am at the latest, some days I’m partially done my exercises when Kim heads off to work at 7:30 am.

Unfortunately we already have snow here as of Sunday evening but it didn’t stick around luckily!

Kim’s teeth will be finished in October.  Then Brewster will have some tests done, followed by some medication.

We’re looking at buying our dream/forever home but we have to sell this place before we buy the other.  No conditional offers will be taken by the current owners of the other place.  They got an offer yesterday, this means we’re in limbo until they accept or reject the offer today or multiple other scenarios happen, so we’ll see.  It would have been our forever/dream home.  Great spot for me in a wheelchair & a nice house for Kim too.  Ah well, not much we can do now but wait.

At least these aren’t non-sense expenses.  It’s not like I have a job to pay for them either.  If we couldn’t afford it, Kim wouldn’t agree to it.  We’ve both cut back on a few luxuries to make this more realistic.

Those are the things that keep me up at night.  It’s that or the fact that I can’t live without stress.  Even this last month & a bit.  If I’m not doing something, I’m thinking about it & what else I need to do.  Now I need to figure out how to relax!

 

New “Opeth” was released on Friday, September 27.  Here’s a review from a metal fan.

James Hetfield (Metallica) helped Randy Blythe (Lamb of God) get sober 9 years ago.

I just find this funny.  I’m passionate about music.  At the same time I realize that not everyone will enjoy the same type of music.  The question “Who’s the best band in the world, living or dead?” there’s no answer to that, don’t lose any sleep over that.  Who do you like?  That’s a question with an answer & you’ll get many different answers!

I may be a rock & metal fan, but we don’t all do drugs, smoke, drink, & swear.  I swear at myself or in jest & I drink socially.  That’s me, whatever any other people do or don’t do is completely up to themselves.

The people I associate with aren’t those wild partying types.  They’re responsible parents.  Yes, I’m THAT old!!!!

 

HEART

I’ve got a greatest hits album that’s all.  I clicked on the “autofill” button years ago on iTunes & was flooded with albums.  Most of them I got rid of & didn’t want.  I think I kept about 8 of them?  There was likely a minimum of 50 that showed up though.  This likely happened in 2005 or 2006?  I’m not necessarily “pro” or “anti” Heart.  I wouldn’t seek them out, but I also didn’t delete the album.  For me, they’re a band that’s there doing their thing.  Before the album was on my iTunes I knew some of their songs, I figured “Great!  Free music I can appreciate.”

EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL

I fell asleep to “ Stitched Up Heart” the debut album that I got last night at 12:00 am Eastern Time “Never Alone”

Falling asleep to an album isn’t the best way to hear or judge it. What I’ve heard I like & of course I’ll listen to it multiple times. It could be one of those albums I end up binge listening to?

I exercised to “Iron Maiden” the album “The Book of Souls”

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

Exercise total for the week ;7500 crunches, 710 leg lifts, 300 squats, & 250 push ups.

Everything stayed the same this week other than the leg lifts. They went up, then down, & I finally settled on 140 a day. I’ll stay at this plateau for a while. When they seem to easy to do, I’ll likely ad some yoga into the mix?

When I die, multiple decades in the future hopefully, please don’t remember me as “that guy who got cancer when he was 28”? Call me anything but that please, hero & victim don’t ever have to be in the conversation either?

When I was a kid, life was so simple. Recess, candy, colouring books, paint, even in University Rydell & I both thought we’d grow up, get a job & buy a new guitar once a month? Life’s not like that at all! Bills, mortgage payments, most people have kids, work or shift work, etc. As a kid I always thought “Ooo, I can’t wait to grow up & be filthy rich”. It so didn’t turn out that way!

Don’t get me wrong, life is great but in a different way! I get to live with my wonderful wife, I can watch baseball in my underwear (I did that at my parents house too), I can drink alcohol, coffee in the morning etc. It’s great, it’s different but it’s really good!

I was usually home from a day of work, in my underwear, drinking a beer & my younger brother, Mitch, would come home with a friend of his. Most of his friends met me that way. Beer, underwear, & reading an article on the computer in the living room in the basement. I think he got mad at me once & yelled at me once after someone had left? “CHRIS, WHY ARE YOU ALWAYS IN YOUR UNDERWEAR WITH A BEER WHEN I BRING SOMEONE OVER???” That’s just how I roll, I wasn’t going to put on a three piece suit just because my brother was coming home, he’s lucky I was wearing anything at all?

Now it’s just baseball on the TV maybe pants & alcohol during the weekend games or water & carrots or grapes?

Last night we went out for supper with Sherry & James. Left the now buzzed Brewster in their place since he makes too much noise & freak out when he’s here alone

I guess Lzzy Hale got a Metal Hammer Golden God award.

“I’m still flying high from last nights Metal Hammer Golden Gods awards! It was such an honor to perform and I am so humbled to be the first female to win the “Dimebag Darrell Shredder Of The Year” award. Thank you so much to everyone for your vote, and to all my fellow musicians and nominees for making me feel like the little sister of the rock and metal community.
Dimebag, even though you’ve left us, your legend lives on through those you touched along your journey. You continue inspire me to be the best guitarist I can be, and hold on to what makes me unique, because that’s how you lived your life. You were fiercely honest and unapologetic, which is the definition of Metal. This is why, alongside Lemmy and Dio, you are forever a golden god. I will treasure this award forever and I look forward to feeling your presence over my shoulder next time I go over my scales. Speaking of which… Time to go practice!!”

“Oh, my” how the music industry has changed!?!?

Bjork’s still around? Who’s buying or streaming her “music” as she calls it?

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/bjork-to-release-vulnicura-live-mask-edition-box-set-20160616

I don’t judge other people on what they listen to, but this is WAY out of left field!!!???? This is as mainstream as she ever got.

This is typical Bjork below.

I’ll confess in my very early 20s I threw in the towel when Disturbed released their 3rd album. Language in the video inside the link.

http://loudwire.com/disturbed-guests-lzzy-hale-blaze-bayley-ben-burnley-2016-download-festival/

Still a few more albums to look forward to this year. Chevelle in July, Opeth & Alter Bridge in September or later this year, & maybe Third Ion & Into Eternity, then whatever other surprises show up?

Ellen proves if you’re a squeaky wheel, you’ll get the grease!

I can’t say no to a good acoustic song!!!

What Metallica drummer, Lars Ulrich, says the new album will sound like. Take this with a grain of salt. There’s a good chance he’ll say something completely different next week.

Brewster is at the groomers right now. He had an appointment at 7:00 am, and yes I got up at the same time Kim got up to get in the shower to take him to the groomers. He gets so excited if we say “Sara”, his groomer’s name. Weird guy LOVES getting a hair cut? I’ve never seen a dog so excited for a trim?

I’m really getting tired of Facebook for 2 reasons. Everybody has an opinion & I get that not everyone has the same opinion as the next person. Seems as though Facebook is the new way lots of people like to pick an argument about someone they have never met in person & have a different opinion. People were complaining about a “Pearl Jam” concert being canceled because the law changed in that state & “Pearl Jam” followed suit & canceled the show as many other bands did. The law was against the LGBT community. I said “Hey, it’s a concert that was canceled for a reason. If you don’t like that the show was canceled, stop harping on the band. Talk to someone in the Government about the new law”. Then random people complain about my opinion. I can’t change the law, I live in a different country! What did I do, & why are they whining & complaining to me?

Candice, who I met in University through her now husband Rydell, was getting heat for the fiasco of a child that was in a Gorilla exhibit. Everybody was outraged that the Gorilla was shot? What, they’d prefer if the child was shot instead? I have nothing against any animal, but REALLY?!?! Give your head a shake?

Now we have the shooting in Orlando. All of the gun loving Americans would probably say ”Well, if those gays had a gun on them this type of thing wouldn’t have happened”. It happened. Why did the idiot who did this have a gun in the first place? “Well, you can’t tell if someone will mentally snap after they purchase a gun”? Who the heck needs an AK-47? Unless you’re in the military or police force on duty, you shouldn’t need or own one. If you live in America, they’ll sell a gun to any John or Jane Doe that has the money. If the shooter didn’t have a gun none of this would have happened!

Yeah, the shooter was American, apparently a member of ISIS, & Islam! In that case he’s just as different as the rest of us in that he was all of those things & an extremist

What album are you excited for being released in July?

http://loudwire.com/vote-most-anticipated-new-release-july-2016/

Easy pick for me. That Blink-182 could be really good, really annoying, or just OK?

I’d be upset if Anthrax were to call it a career & quit.

In Flames signed a new contract with Nuclear Blast

“In a way, IN FLAMES and Nuclear Blast share a similar story,” said IN FLAMES vocalist Anders Fridén. “Both started in a garage in Europe, both love metal and both have grown a lot bigger over the years. For these reasons, it seemed a natural fit to come back to the place it all started.”

Did anybody hear that Tremonti released the album “Dust”?

I hope I Mother Earth’s Facebook page means Our Lady Peace will be touring with them?

This could also be just a one time deal for residents in Ontario?
