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

Music throughout the weekend. “Dave Grohl”, “The Struts”, “Lamb of God”, “Bruce Springsteen”.

 

Relatively quiet weekend.  Friday I watched the Toronto Blue Jays.  Did the same on Saturday.  Stopped the game on Saturday while visiting with Tim Wong & his kids.  I’ve been friends with Tim since grade 9 (1994-1995?).  Nice to see him.  I see him about once a year, since he lives in Edmonton.  Always a welcome visit when he’s in town.  Kim had a work BBQ on Saturday.  She left just before 3:00 pm & came home quite late (2:50 pm – 11:40 pm roughly), what was I doing?  I watched “Star Wars Episode 8: The Last Jedi” after Tim & his kids left.

Today is our get ready for the week ahead, I’ve made my juice & Kim’s out grocery shopping.  I’ll bake some fish & Kim will put her lunches together once we hard boil some eggs.

Brewster is getting old.  Kim took him to the Vet this week.  He’s 12.5 years old, both ears are infected, & on a scale of 1 – 6 his heart murmur is at a 4.  Gets me more than a little worried.

 

I can’t wait to see “The Meg”.  That might rank up there for me with the movie “Jaws”?

 

JIMMY EAT WORLD

A pop/punk band made up of 7 people with 8 albums.  Again, more emphasis on the pop than the punk.  They made their debut in 1996 with the album “Static Prevails”.  I own 4 of their albums.  Not the first 2 releases or the last 2 releases.  They’ve hit the peak of their career for me.  I didn’t get into them until 2001 on their 3rd album “Bleed American” when I saw the video for the song “The Middle”.

 

2001    BLEED AMERICAN

 

2004    FUTURES

 

2007   CHASE THIS LIGHT

 

2010   INVENTED

I can see how people would get really bored with this band fast.  Very redundant with the majority of the songs in very simple 4/4 time.  If I’m listening to stuff like this or a very progressive type of music, I’m probably not thinking about the music & have just tuned out of everything.  If it’s very progressive I might be focusing or thinking too hard about what’s going on in the music.

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

Should I be worried that I take the same black & pink pills for heart burn that “Butt Drugs” carries?  Should I take them anally?

 

Friday was me watching most of the Toronto Blue Jays game.  Kim thinks she’s catching a cold.  Friday she grabbed some medication & went to bed at 8:30 pm I think it was.

Saturday was more of the same.  Woke up, had breakfast.  Kim put in a load of laundry, then she & Brewster had a nap on the couch.  She woke up about an hour or more before the Blue Jay game came on, & went to bed after a Tim Hortons run for soup.

We finished Saturday watching a documentary on Netflix!

This is our lives in our late 30s.

Kim is still sick today.  Brewster was freaked last night.  He jumped off of the bed many times & whined until Kim helped up each time.  He can’t get on our bed without help, he’s vertically challenged!

I guess the power went out, so the smoke detectors were beeping, which he hates.  They beeped again when the power came back on.

I had a weird dream.  I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to go to work or university.  I was late & couldn’t find my calculus text book?  I rode my motorcycle to work & couldn’t find anybody to let me know what needed to be done?

I have never owned or had a desire to ride a motorcycle & a calculus text book is not needed for running a printing press?

Maybe order groceries & get ready for the week, as usual.  FYI I found more T-Shirts that fit!

 

My music over the weekend “Dead Sara”, “Foo Fighters”, “Queens of the Stone Age”, “Myles Kennedy”, “Into Eternity”, “Third Ion” & “Megadeth”

BIG WRECK

 

Original line up dropped out of ‘The Berkley School of Music’ to form Big Wreck & released their debut album in 1997.  3 Americans & 1 Canadian, voted to be the singer by band members.  They released their 2nd album in 2001 & broke up the following year.  During this time singer, Ian Thornley, started another group called “Thornley”.  Different label also.  2 albums were released by the group.  Big Wreck reformed with different band members on drums & bass, & original 2nd guitarist.  Big Wreck released their 3rd album in 2012.  I was still in my rehabilitation center, but there was no way I was missing their show in Regina that year.

In total ‘Big Wreck’ has 5 studio releases & a live EP with a studio cover of ‘The Cars’.

I consider myself a metal fan, well some metal.  As you might know by now, there are other genres I like.  I am a pretty loyal fan of whatever group I’m listening to in most cases.  If I really like them, I’m always willing to listen to or purchase their entire catalogue when possible.  I’m on a monthly iTunes allowance.  Now I know who’s worth $9.99, which helps quite a bit!

I fell asleep to “Tool” the album “AEnima”

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

I decided to work out today.  It would have been a wasted day for me otherwise.

400 pushups, 400 crunches, 400 leg lifts, 160 back flexes, 80 triceps pushups.  I achieved all of my exercise goals this week.

Exercising for 4 days is much easier than 5 days.  I had far more energy than usual.  I didn’t feel like rolling over into the fetal position & crying afterwards like I feel most days lately.  Wednesday, Thursday, today felt good!  I hope this trend stays around for a while!

All of these people being accused of sexual harassment, & now Roy Moore running for senate in Alabama saying ‘Why now & not in 1979?’  Well I get the fact that these women are now coming out & saying something now.  They feel safe now & confident that people will take notice of what they have to say.  Now they will be heard, while the filthy liars who committed these crimes try so hard to deny these accusations.  Roy Moore says “I asked their mother before taking them out” SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!  When someone is 14 & sexually assaulted by a 32 year old, I don’t care if you had God’s blessings.  He’s been accused of sexually assaulting 5 teenage girls in the 1970s & early 1980s.  I hear Roy Moore was also banned from a mall.  Get off of your high horse & throw away your gun that you showed at your rally.

With all of these accusations coming out, how is Trump still president?  He’s been accused & has admitted to it & people have turned a blind eye to his wrongdoings.  WHY?  People like this belong in a jail cell, & should be treated like every other sexual predator!

 

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

 

I’ve been a fan of “Queen” from as far back as I can remember.  Now that I know “Foo Fighters” are fans of “Queen” makes it much better than it already was.  I get to hear this now when I see “Foo Fighters” in concert!

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

 

No, I want to see real people doing their craft.  Concerts would get boring if this hologram stuff.

http://loudwire.com/lars-ulrich-metallica-hologram-fine-with-me/

 

 

Stone Temple Pilots have a new singer & single

The singer’s name is Jeff Gutt.  He placed 2nd on one of the season of “The X Factor”.  Here he is on “The X Factor” doing a great cover of “Radiohead”

I think this adds validity 2 things I’ve always thought.  These “reality” shows are nothing more than subjectively judged talent shows.  Also he got the last laugh in the end!  The judges aren’t wrong, it’s just a subjective response.

 

The new “Barenaked Ladies” album “Fake Nudes” was released last night.  I’ll give it a good listen before I review it.

I’ll admit I’m not much of a punk fan but there are quite a few on this list that I like!

 

“A Perfect Circle” made a video for their single “The Doomed”

 

“Queens of the Stone Age” are on tour with “Royal Blood” opening for them.  Unfortunately no one wants/can go to a show in Calgary or Winnipeg in May.

I guess it saves us some cash though!  L

 

How do I say this politely?  Ummmmmmmmmmm YEAH!

7500 crunches, 500 squats, 400 pushups, & 350 leg lifts

Pushups & leg lifts numbers were the ones that suffered on Tuesday.  A normal week should be; 7500 crunches, 500 squats, 350, leg lifts, & 320 pushups.

I over compensated on the pushups this week as I was making up for Tuesday.  Next week I’ll try to do 100 pushups a day & maybe 100 leg lifts a day, eventually the squats might go up, the squats might take a while though?  Every day starts out with 100 squats, 70 leg lifts, 1500 crunches, & 80 pushups.

Not having breakfast before I exercise is how I motivate myself. No juice, coffee or hardboiled egg until my exercises are done, just water.  I’m just lacking a bit of my get up, & go at the moment.

 

It sickens me to hear about a shooting in the USA!  I used to get disgusted & sad about someone’s life ending that way.  Then it was just anger.  Now, I’m just numb, because I know in a week or two there will be another one.  I don’t like that.  It has just become so common in the USA.  I record everything we watch & a few weeks ago I started recording stuff on a west coast feed l to avoid the “Breaking News” interrupting a show every week.  I don’t think of it as “Breaking News” if it happens so often?  Really everybody’s killing or picking on someone else for being different?  WHY?  It makes no sense to me.  I don’t have a cell phone, so you had better shoot me?  Wait I’m also Christian.  Better fill me with bullets!???????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Yes, I got these 2 albums last night on preorder from iTunes.  I started listening to “The Pretty Reckless” & thought “I can’t asleep to this, it’s too good!  I need to sit & give this a good listen”.  All of this half way through the 4th song.

 

Sorry, a few more Alter Bridge album reviews.  I find “Blackbird” to be their least ambitious release, & one of the most over rated album in their short 5 album existence, but that’s just me.  It’s a good album, just not my favourite.

It’s a good album.  Check it out if you like rock or border line metal, make your own opinion about it!

My goodness!  Could I borrow like $5,000 with 0% interest from someone for iTunes please?  There’s possibly 6 albums being released before the end of the year?  I’ve already funded iTunes for the year.  I guess I’ll have to live on “blah” Apple Music until we can afford it?

I did it!  I hit all of my goals, & even exceeded one to make up for my performance on Tuesday.  Things are getting better & better.

 

Not only did the Jays lose on Wednesday, & they’re done now for the year…………………..again!  We had a second power outage last night?  2 days in a row.  At least last night’s blackout was only 20 minutes long?  Baseball season is done for me.

Goodbye Jose Bautista at the very least.  I hope somebody offers you $20,000,000/year.  I’m not a general manager, even a qualifying offer of $17,800,000 seems like too much.  He talks too much, can’t really back it up, & has become a notorious whiner throughout this past season.  The Blue Jays will look different next year, hopefully younger too?

In the meantime we are currently working on a full length recording to be completed and released early 2017. We will also be releasing other material such as remixes, demos, videos and songs.

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

 

Friday evening I watched the Blue Jays lose 2-0 to Cleveland in game 1 of a best of 7 series.  Cleveland won the game, Blue Jays didn’t really lose it.  If they can score 4-7 a game they should be able to win the series?  The Blue Jays scoring 4 runs in a game is not out of the question.  They have scored that many in one inning multiple times this year.  I think their “mantra” should be “Do what I did to get here, then do just a bit more”.  Pretty difficult to win a game when you don’t score.  Either way, this team will look very different next year.  I think there’s 8 players who have contracts expiring in the offseason & Rogers won’t be opening the purse strings to sign them all.  That includes some big names; Bautista, Encarnacion, & Michael Saunders.  Then some that will venture into arbitration.  This year is sort of a catch 22 for the GM & President.  If they win, everyone that can will be asking for more money, even now that they’re in the playoffs this could happen.  If they lose, well it’s a business of what have you done for me lately?

Saturday morning, I should have just stayed in bed, it was a day of Murphy ’s Law.  “This was easy yesterday, why not today?”  Then I get mad at myself.  The afternoon & evening turned out to be much better!  We went over to Corey & Jolene’s place for the Saskatchewan Roughriders win their 5th game of the year, 4 wins in a row.  Kim’s back was out for Hannah’s 3rd birthday.  Hannah got her birthday gift today from us, & we got supper and birthday cake!  Oh, and beer mmm!  Came home to watch the recorded Blue Jays game.  2 losses in a row.  Pretty hard to win 2 games when score 1 run over the course of 2 games.

 

Corey’s trying to sell me on Apple Music.  I use it to preview an album in it’s entirety, but if Apple Music goes down, there goes my music.  So I purchase my music through iTunes.  Sure, I spend more money & I have to cool it now, but what I have will always be there, I own it.  If Apple, with their steady decline in the market, takes away my music, that’s flat out stealing from a customer?  At first when he started using it he said something to the tune of “Make a list of what you listen to on Apple Music.  If it goes down, then purchase it.”  Solid point, but I can’t spend $600 all at once on music?  I’m just not comfortable with streaming sites.  Streaming site or not, artists aren’t making nearly as much money as they used to.  All of the 1980s hair metal groups made a pile of money & pretty much got whatever they wanted, so why not pay for music now?  I look at streaming sites as cheap satellite radio X 100.  You can listen to exactly what you want to hear, but it could be taken away at any moment.  That’s just how I see it.  Use a streaming site or not, there’s no manual about how to use the internet.

Everybody has a cell phone, I choose not to.  Does that make me or anyone else “with or without” wrong?  I don’t think so?

 

Sunday, try to do as little as possible, unless Kim has some fancy idea that I’d have to help her with.  We don’t do much on Sundays.  Kim gets groceries & cleans, steams her work close.  I do what I’m told.  Once that’s done, it’s couch time!

What’s funny is listen to these 2 riffs!  They’re identical, Queens of the Stone Age just split the Metallica riff in half & it’s played on bass.  If you’re a guitar player, look up the music or tab!

 

Another tune from “Jimmy Eat World”

 

Brody Dalle, formerly of “The Distillers” now married to Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age, has a new video.  I guess it’s from the 9 song album she released in April.  I wasn’t a Distillers fan.  This is all news to me.  This song seems to be good though!

Here’s a song from “The Distillers” & yes the singer is Brody Dalle.

A few people I went to SIAST with were casual fans of “The Distillers”.  That’s the only reason I know their name.

I exercised to ”I Mother Earth” the album “Scenery & Fish” in celebration of it’s release 20 years ago.  Followed by one song off of their last full length studio album “The Quicksilver Meat Dream”

I hit my daily goals again this week!!!

Remember this was a 4 day week.  So here it is: 6000 crunches, 400 squats, 320 pushups, & 280 leg lifts

My goals for each day are: 1500 crunches, 100 squats, 80 pushups, & 70 leg lifts.

Normal weekly total should be, 7500 crunches, 500 squats, 400 pushups, & 350 leg lifts.

Before I do the rest of my exercise after the first 50 squats, I’ll be drinking my smoothie, coffee & water.  Just thinking about how much my exercise will suck.  When I finish them I think “Hey that wasn’t terrible at all!”  I figure if Kevin Hart can do 1000 sit ups a day and 500 pushups, there’s no reason I can’t do it too.  I think he said it last year on “The Ellen Degeneres Show”?

When my exercise totals are on, I feel like I’ve accomplished what I expected from myself.  It’s quite a bit like my job was running a printing press.  When I fished a shift, I’d hold a sheet, look at it & think “Hey!  I helped in the process of making this!”  That validated what I was doing.  I kind of don’t see what the results are from my exercises.  I do know that more & more T-Shirts fit though.  Not really my goal, I can’t imagine being satisfied until I’m able to walk on my own.  Until that happens, I’ll be “my own worst enemy” saying to myself “NOT GOOD ENOUGH!”

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

My parents & my in-laws had to adjust quite a bit as well.  We still haven’t been to Kim’s parents place since 2007, before I had cancer.  Her parents & younger brother come to Regina on Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, & sometimes in the summer.

My parents had to feed me when I came out of “….m, m, m, my coma”.  I was so weak I couldn’t lift a utensil to my face.  I started to cough one day & my father chimed in “Hey, you just hit me with food, & it went 8’ & covered the wall, your cap on your trach came off”.  If I’m having anything carbonated, best to stay out of the splash zone, or wear a rain poncho!

As much as I’d enjoy daily life being easy, the world shouldn’t & doesn’t stop for anyone!  I’m learning how to keep up with everyone.

 

I’ll get a cell phone one day.  The cheapest piece of junk, leave it off when I’m out, & turn it on only for emergencies.  To call someone.  I don’t enjoy being photographed unless I don’t know about it.  I will not have my email or Facebook attached to my phone & very few people will have the number.  I will also not engage in texting.  I just don’t like the idea of having an active cell phone with me constantly.  I’ll never understand the attraction of being attached to the world “24/7”?

 

I guess I’m a “Star Wars” nerd too.  I saw this & wondered what the timeline was.  I guess “Hans Solo” was born about the same time as “Luke & Leia Skywalker” were born?  I don’t know, I was confused?

I was watching the “Lethal Weapon” TV series the other night & I heard a song I haven’t heard in a long time!

I haven’t heard the entire song since my after grad party!  I still like a few of the songs on this album.

 

I’m sure any help would be appreciated in helping someone with cancer!

Foo Fighters were in a law suit?

http://www.nme.com/news/foo-fighters/97132?utm_campaign=nme-14-october-14-10-2016&utm_medium=email&utm_source=newsletter

Foo Fighters weren’t going to put this song on the album.  Their manager came in after they finished recording this album & said “Hey, what about that song that says best of you 8 billion times?”

 

Review of the latest “Opeth” album “Sorceress”.  This is not a death metal album as they had intended.

I really like this album!

 

Pentatonix shared it……

 

One week from today “The Pretty Reckless” & “Jimmy Eat World”

 

New song from the upcoming album “Battles” by In Flames!

I’ll catch you on Sunday.  All I see is baseball playoffs in Cleveland & a Saskatchewan Roughriders game in Toronto this weekend!  If you need me, sorry, I’ll be on the couch.
