450 Curls w/ 20 pound dumb bells

250 Shoulder raises/Chest presses w/ 10 pound dumb bells

500 Crunches

500 Leg lifts

200 Squats

280 Back flexes

1:05 hour of yoga over 2 days

 

I guess I should clear a few things up to begin.  I’m reluctant to put my playing on social media since I posted a polite comment on a site a few months ago.  Instantly I had 7-10 people making fun of my iPatch.  Well “the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate……and I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake.  Shake it off”.

I thought that was a smart pop album.

In Canada we have an extra day off in each remaining month of the year.  September has Labour day, October has Canadian Thanksgiving, November 11th is Rememberance day & then Christmas holidays.  Kim & I  don’t have any extra days off.  Even with 5 days off last weekend we both had a day of “What should I do with myself?”

We’ll call that as house cleaning done for now!

Monday, Wednesday, & Friday are the days I do crunches, leg lifts, back flexes, & squats.  I’m starting to dislike those days.  Just thinking the entire time about how much I don’t want to be doing those exercises.  I do them anyways & get them out of my way.

I hadn’t had coffee or tea since May 19th.  Kim came home on Monday with a mocha-frapacino for me.  I drank it, with all of that sugar & flavouring it really loses it’s appeal for me.  I used to drink the darkest Columbian roast I could find.  I have a high resting pulse, so coffee isn’t really even desired.

Also as of May 19th I’ve only had 2 alcoholic beverages.  One to celebrate the return of Blue Jay baseball & one while watching a Q & A regarding guitars on www.youtube.com.

I decided shortly after Tuesday’s post that I’d make things a little harder for me & learn the lead intro to this Trivium song.  That might take some time.

If Led Zeppelin tries to sue me for playing one of their songs, you’ll help me out wont you?  You might have to.  I’m posting a video of me on guitar playing Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir”, well an abreviated version of it.  Many mistakes but I’m camera shy, actually I hate any photo, audio, or video of me.  It’s on Facebook with all of the flaws recorded since people asked?  Played it 5 times before recording it error free, camera comes with the mistakes. If you wanna hear more, I’m home & happier at home than without a cell phone in my face.  Being on video while playing guitar was the most depressing/joy sucking experience I’ve been through since I was suicidal from 2009-2011.

I was going to post videos of me playing Alter Bridge, Megadeth, Nothing but Thieves, Pantera, a few Metallica songs, a few Alice in Chains songs, many Foo Fighters songs, a few more Led Zeppelin songs, Pearl Jam, I Mother Earth, The Beatles, Eric Clapton, etc.  I’ll take cancer again before I video myself playing guitar again.  Audio is fine, I just don’t listen to it much at all.

With everything being digital and everyone having a camera with them all of the time, that is DEFINITELY a reason I stay indoors.  Not many people call our land line outside of spam calls.  Did people suddenly forget they can talk to someone instead of texting?  I don’t see myself getting a cell phone until land lines are eliminated.

You’ve got the video, I get “Red Light Fever” – Taylor Hawkins, drummer for Foo Fighters from one of Taylor’s albums “Taylor Hawkins & The Coattail Riders”.  I got the video done & out of the way.  Nobody takes anyone by their word anymore, lots of people need video proof, BUMMER!

Here are the specs & a photo of what should arrive on August 21st.

S2 Custom 22 Semi-Hollow Body Guitar w/Gig Bag - McCarty Sunburst

You won’t see me playing it.  There will be a photo on here & a reaction video on the Facebook site.  This will be my only guitar with a tremolo system aka a whammy bar.

This is the guitar I’m saving for & hope to order in the spring.  Minimum of 90 days before it gets here.

https://www.prsguitars.com/index.php/electrics/model/s2_mccarty_594

S2 McCarty 594 Electric Guitar with Gigbag - Whale Blue

An amplifier upgrade/replacement & I will be all set for many years or Kim might hurt me……she knows karaté!

I can promise you there will be a photo of each of these guitars as I get them, with a reaction/opening of the gig bag video on the Facebook page.  Eventually I’ll post a photo of my guitars all together.

I’ve seen the minimum price for a PRS guitar all the way to a bolt-on neck price for a PRS.  Core & Private Stock go to the highest price point.  The least expensive SE PRS retail in Canada is $780 + GST (Government Sales Tax in Canada of 5% followed by whatever the Provinces Provicial Sales Tax is).  I’m looking at 2 S2 models just above that price point of between $1980-2400 retail, tax in Saskatchewan amounts to 11%.  A bolt-on neck PRS retails for $4,899-$5100.  I’m assuming a Core model would retail for $5500.  A Private Stock would likely be a minimum of $5500 & up.  With a Private Stock PRS you get to go to the factory in Maryland & pick out what type of wood you want for each part of the guitar (neck, body, top, binding),  the electronics they offer, the body style (solid, semi-hollow, hollow body, or acoustic), the colour & finish.  I used to say my limit on a guitar would be $5000, it’s not anymore the S2 line is by far my limit.

I play guitar a LOT.  Even with baseball on I’ll watch a game while practicing on my acoustic.  So for fun I tallied up the amount of time I spent practicing guitar Tuesday & Wednesday.  It’s quarantine time & I don’t watch much TV other than Blue Jay baseball & CFL football (I’m not sure when football starts).  The tally over 2 days comes to roughly 11:30 hours.  That’s pretty standard honestly.

My main electric guitar changes daily.  It’s more to do with what I’m playing followed by more practice on the acoustic if it’s not an acoustic song.  This is a little further down the list for me to relearn…

It’s INCREDIBLE guitar players like this that humble me.

This website wants me to show advertisements so I can get paid for this.  I’m not about to do that.  I don’t watch commercials, so I’m not going to make you watch them.  Also, I might not like the product advertised, another BIG reason I’ll keep this website commercial free.

I see a lot of reaction videos on www.youtube.com of people just going insane for the emotion & musicianship in this song.  I agree it’s FANTASTIC song, that was released in 2007.  I don’t understand why I’m seeing reaction videos from 2019?

Well just wait until 2031 when they react to this song that was released last year.

Well look at Big Wreck’s new live video!

Stuff I’ve learned, never the solo though.

I don’t know if this counts as a song without the solo?  2 notes & 1 chord.  Below.

Tighten this up.  Everything gets better as you play any song.

This is improving everyday!

 

KIM HAS THURSDAY & FRIDAY OFF NEXT WEEK.  JUST A POST ON WEDNESDAY NEXT WEEK!

 

450 Curls w/ 20 pound dumb bells

250 Shoulder raises/Chest presses w/ 10 pound dumb bells

750 Crunches

750 Leg lifts

300 Squats

420 Back flexes

1:35 hours of yoga over 2 days

 

Wednesday seems to be the day when I feel really tired & very soar.  Extra stretching is needed from Wednesday until the week is over.  Kim & I both were sore Wednesday morning.  She’s sore/stiff everyday, I just notice it after a few days of exercise.  Not sure if we need a new mattress or exactly what the problem is?  I figure it’s the exercise & body getting a bit older as I push myself harder?

Kim & I met at SIAST (Saskatchewan Institute of Science & Technology) in the Graphic Arts Production (GAP) program.  She was there before I was & finished a semester earlier than me.  We both got our graduation deploma & finished the GATF (Graphic Arts Technical Foundation) test/requirements.  She’s worked as a desktop designer ever since.  I went into the program to become a desktop designer as well, I changed my mind after the initial semester.

I wanted to be more hands on with the physical product & focused on the production/printing part of the process.  I learned how to operate different printing presses.  I worked as a printing press operator until I got cancer in 2008.

I never thought I’d be the type of person to be in a job that was pretty much manual labor.  That being said I’ve only had 1 desk job prior to that.

Kim’s pretty responsible at her desk.  She does actually take the time to get out of her chair & stretch a few times a day.  Up until I spent a year in a hospital bed I was fairly active as well.  I figure that we’re sore in the morning from just getting older?

I did extra stretching on Wednesday after my exercises, & Thursday before my exercises & it made the little amount of pain go away!

With baseball returning, Jimmy Kimmel live, & The Late Show with Stephen Colbert still on TV, I find myself rushing more than usual to get stuff done.  Exercise, have breakfast & lunch, check my computer, play guitar, have supper, and watch TV.  I even found myself watching baseball while struming my acoustic guitar on the couch when the string broke & there was a rain delay in the preseason game.  Kim was out for a bike ride so I pulled out the vacuum.

Lately I just don’t sleep much during the week 5:30 hours a night has been the axerage for me.  I get up & do things as quietly as possible.  Eat, exercise, tend to any dishes waiting in or out of the dishwasher, do the hand wash dishes, check my computer, practice unplugged electric guitar, or anything that won’t wake up Kim & Brewster.  I just hate having dirty dishes out, so I usually get to them first.

Met up with my aunt, uncle, & their new 1 year old puppy, Gibson.  Short visit, but Brewster & Gibson were happy and playing the entire time.  They’re about the same size.  Gibson is probably 1/2” taller.  He’s a Cocker Spaniel/Poodle cross.  Very handsome dog!

I played guitar from January 30th, 2001 – February 3rd, 2008.  I broke 2 strings on a my guitar while playing it during that time.  Now in 11 months with fairly new strings wound the same way as I used to do, I have broken 2 strings.  One on my first electric guitar a few months ago, & a string on my acoustic guitar broke this week.  I don’t even have a wammy bar on any of my guitars, & they’re tuned to a lower note?  Weird?  Hello amazon, music stores are out of stock on quite a bit of stuff during this time.

I learned Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir” in standard tuning, then found out it was wrong & now I’m learning it with the strings tuned DADGad instead of standard tuning EADGbe.  No solos in this song but a TON of orchestral parts to simulate on guitar.  Little licks to play on occasion!  I never even considered trying to play Led Zeppelin before since I busy singing.

The Toronto Blue Jays were set to call Pittsburge home for this shortened baseball season.  The Canadian Federal government denied their application to play in Toronto & the Pittsburge health officials said they can’t play home games there.  They have their first ‘home’ game on Wednesday, July 29th, 2020.  The regular season starts tonight for the Jays as the visiting team in FLORIDA???  How on earth do two Florida based teams get to play any games there in a hot spot for the virus, then travel throughout the USA to play baseball???  At worst the Jays will be  playing as the home team in other teams parks, starting Wednesday, until early October.

Let me break down what has happened since Tuesday with a couple of MLB games to start Thursday evening.  The LA Dodgers signed a player who will average a paycheck of $30,416,000 every year for the next 12 years.  The Toronto Blue Jays have no home field, & a player for Washington tested positive for Covid-19, 20 minutes later from that report he has a rapid test that has negative results, he did not participate in the game.  The initial test was taken on Tuesday & the results were given Thursday afternoon.  He participated in a preseason game against Baltimore on Tuesday.  The rest of the Washington team plays Thursday evening regardless.  At the time of me writing this, the MLB season hasn’t even started & could be done soon.  I miss sports, but just shut them down for the year!  Oh yeah 54 year old Mike Tyson is going to box one exhibition match.  Good grief, he had a video game on NES in the 1980s?!?!

“Is everybody going crazy?”

 

For the weekend & next week I’ll polish up “Kashmir” then work on Metallica’s  “Master of Puppets” & Foo Fighters’ “The Pretender”.  I might as well throw Foo Fighters’ “Monkey Wrench” into the mix since I’ve been messing around with it.

Same notes as I play but I play it in different areas.

2800 Back flexes

I watched “Jimmy Kimmel Live” from Thursday July 9th, 2020.  Guest host Billy Eichner with guest Billy Porter.  For those who don’t know, Billy Porter is a gay, black celebrity.  For the record I know gay people & black people.  There’s a clip within 1:00 minute of the video I’d like to speak about.

Billy Porter is calling out the black community on their treatment of the #LGBTQ+ community.  Fair enough, I’m not black or gay so I’ve never experienced what he has.  This interview did not enrage me in any way, it inspired me to write this.

I’d like to say something on behalf of straight white people. We’re not all racist or homophobic.  Police officers are not all racist or homophobic.

Just because a person has a different skin complexion &/or sexuality does not mean they hate those that are different from them.  I’m not black, gay, transgender, queer, bisexual, or a police officer.  I will say that I’m uninformed but learning more now.

Yes I do support the #blacklivesmatter movement & the #LGBTQ+ community.  I will always support these groups.  I know my friends & family that are police officers, of a different race, & those that are gay have experienced many different things than I have.  That doesn’t make any of them bad people, nor does it make every other individual a bad person.

There are good people & bad people EVERYWHERE.  They come in all colours, shapes, sizes, professions, religions, political views, & sexual orientations.

I agree with the peaceful protesters & the change they’re protesting for.  I don’t like the fact that there’s a label for the #LGBTQ+ community, but I understand the need to be included in a community.

I will say that I’m not outgoing.  I do not think that makes me racist or homophobic.  I’m obviously approachable or I wouldn’t have friends.  I don’t care about an individual’s race, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, history, etc.  What I care about is respect.  More specifically MUTUAL RESPECT.

I’ll treat anyone with respect right from the start & we’ll be friends.  Respect is a two-way street though.  Always remember the golden rule ‘Treat others as you want to be treated’.

Wear a mask & the positive tests for the virus decline.  Blatant proof it works!

Show some humanity & wear a mask please?!  Coronavirus doesn’t care about your political views, just wear a mask please?!?!!!!

 

At this point my hand & arm muscles are fine for guitar.  It’s more of a pick a song, keep practicing it & move on.  A song can take an hour or a month to learn at this point.  Depends on the song & how much I practice it.  Depends on my energy when I play as well.  The more energy I have, the more I’ll be focused on the task at hand.

I listen to metal music, but I’m just starting to play more of it.  I’m working on these 3 songs but they’ll take more time than others.

OK, this one’s not a metal song but it’s busy!!!

Playing guitar is not a destination, there is no point where you can say “I’m a perfect guitar player”, I can easily say I’m a beginner playing some more technically advanced songs than I ever would have attempted.  It’s a journey with something new around every corner.

Still waiting for this guitar ordered in January.  I emailed yesterday and despite the pandemic, it’s still scheduled for shipping at the end of August.

I’m back & forth on the blue colour I’d like to order.  I think this is nicer now?

S2 McCarty 594 Electric Guitar with Gigbag - Whale Blue

Still blue though.  Solid blue instead of the faded blue burst.  I have quite a while to think about it though.

YAY regular season baseball starts on Friday, July 24th for the Toronto Blue Jays……………………………..in FLORIDA?!?!?!?

2 days of yoga

5:03 minutes of planking over 6 planks.  The first 3 were rather short takes where I’d finish a 30 second plank, then I hear Kim say “Oops, I took a picture”?  Or some type of oops.  I’ll put my planking videos from Wednesday to today on the Facebook page?  Today’s video hasn’t come to the cloud yet record high for me of 1:39 minutes.

There won’t be any stairs during this virus stuff.  I don’t really want to touch a public railing or clean them before & after I’m done.

I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “What the Dead Men Say”

I exercised to “Big Wreck” the album “…but for the sun”

My mantra for the year has been & still is, if I have to say “I can’t” that’s not the way to say it.  I must say “I can’t yet”.  Don’t cut yourself short!

I said on Tuesday’s post that “I’d like to get a job so people don’t think I’m a “mooch”.  I was talking with Kim this week about this.  Specifically I asked “Do you think I earn my $27,000-$28,000 disability check each year?”  She see’s me busting my butt 5 days a week.  She says I earn it.  I don’t have the time to waste getting comfy on the couch & watching TV all day.  I record EVERYTHING.  If I don’t have time to watch it, which is typical for most shows, I watch it when I have time or on the weekend.

I don’t exercise for fun, although it does feel pretty good after despite me feeling “exhausted” after.  I started planking once a day & Kim has been taking videos of me.

I don’t want to be known as someone that sits around all day, watches TV & movies & does nothing else.  Sure the pay is preety sad, but on the flip side, it’s for me to get better.  So all of those exercises at the top of the page that you might skip, that’s my work week.  I start every morning, 5 days a week with 1 ½ – 2 hours of exercise.  2 days of weights & yoga, & 3 days of everything else.  That’s my job & I take it seriously.  Since January when I measured my muscles & weighed myself, even I can see a difference.  I’ll do another round of measurements & weight again in June so you can tell I’ve been doing something.

If I wasn’t physically handicapped we would likely have had a child.  I physically couldn’t handle a young kid 24/7.  Everything an able bodied person does easily takes twice the amount of energy out of me.  Kim cleans the kitchen in 30 minutes and she’s tired.  I clean the same kitchen in 45 minutes and I’m sweating.

Every day before a week of work starts, I make my pre-made boiled eggs, pitcher of vegetable juice & bake my frozen fish.  My license is indefinetely suspeded by my doctor.  Kim is the one that gets groceries for us.  Kim does a WHOLE BUNCH more.  Everything we do is for both of us other than our personal hobbies.  Kim’s big on photography & is now doing it as part of her job!

STAY INSIDE PEOPLE!  I think this speaks for itself?!  The length of your hair shouldn’t matter, especially if you’re inside?

……and people constantly used to ask me “Why do you not want to go to Las Vegas?”  I know not every American is this way, but these are the citizens that are typically on American National news.  I was watching Canadian National news & Regina local news on Thursday, constantly frowning & shaking my head in disgust.  America starts its gradual opening today & on May 4th Canada will too.  Why?  Is another month of isolation going to kill us or will the Covid-19 stuff kill us?  Which do you think is more likely?

https://regina.ctvnews.ca/first-phase-of-re-opening-sask-economy-to-begin-on-may-4-1.4908473?fbclid=IwAR1JpS_GXg5w195XiotrZzgapI5v7cGRl66q6Ok3uCIpw9b1Ahq8oS3Xv2Q

Globally 0.06% of the population has died of Covid-19.  Some countries have yet to go 24 hours without a new case.  This is according to the W.H.O. website as of Thursday afternoon.  Yes, North America has a privilege in the world.  Are our Governments out of money?  Why are we reopening if the confirmed cases aren’t 0% without a vaccine?  I’m not trying to be an alarmist by any means, I know things will return to some type of new normal eventually.  This seems a bit premature, especially when we’ve been told there is a second wave of this virus coming after reopening.

I don’t even like having to clarify this since it shows my ignorance so well.  Kim pointed out to me that it could come off as though I’m looking for anybody to buy a guitar for me.  Not the case at all, it’s just something I really enjoy doing & talking about, much like my father about rum, electronics, music, etc.  To be VERY CLEAR I INTEND TO SAVE FOR THE GUITAR.  Besides, that aqua colour will really bring out the blue in my eye……& the black satin back will bring out the colour of my iPatch!

https://www.long-mcquade.com/124878/Guitars/Electric-Guitars/Paul-Reed-Smith/SE-Paul-s-Guitar—Aqua.htm

There were SO many other people that needed/deserved help before Covid-19 happened & now that it has, there are even more.  I’m alive & well, people I chat with regularly are doing well.  As long as that stays the same, everything is OK.  I hope this helps put things into perspective for everyone at this time.

 

YAY “Trivium” day!

“Lamb of God” may have delayed their album release until June but they released a new song from it.

WEEKLY EXERCISE TOTAL/FINE YOUNG CANNIBALS

No such thing as a stupid question!  Feel free to ask me on Facebook or the website!

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

5 days of exercise total; 400 pushups, 600 leg lifts, 300 crunches, 300 tricep lifts, 450 squats, 300 back flexes.

I fell asleep to “Third Ion” the album “Biolith”

I exercised to “Big Wreck” the album “Albatross”

 

All of this exercise is great n’ all, I do feel better exercising & with the change in my eating habits.  I think both of us need a break though.  Neither of us have really stopped for more than 2 weeks or so, once.

We don’t even have passports at the moment.  We could get them, but the question is, where would we go?  We can’t afford to go anywhere right now other than our neighboring provinces of Alberta or Manitoba.  I’m feeling less energetic & Kim is likely getting tired also.

We’re thinking of getting our passports for a trip in 2020 which will be our 15th wedding anniversary.  Not sure where we’ll go but it has to be wheelchair accessible.

This is a BIG part of what makes me feel like a “burden”.  Nobody has ever mentioned that I’m a burden.  On the flip side, everything must be as close to perfect for me in order to take a break & relax.  We’ll have to start saving our pennies now for a trip next year.

I know this entire cancer thing is not what anybody close to me signed up for, but it happened.  Cancer may have won the battle, but I won the war.  “…For a wounded man shall say to his assailant.  If I live I will kill you.  If I die you are forgiven.  Such is the rule of honour” – Lamb of God.  Likely, that statement won’t hold up in court though.

 

FINE YOUNG CANNIBALS – THE RAW & THE COOKED

My dad bought this album on CD the year it was released or shortly after 1988.  I saw this album at Vintage Vinyl in Regina’s downtown before I was diagnosed with cancer.  I had a terrible record player & didn’t buy it for $9.99.  Bad move on my part!  I called myself an idiot for not buying it, as did my younger loving brother who was with me at the time.

As with the majority of my albums, I can listen to this album in it’s entirety without skipping past a single song…

 

HILARIOUS impression, & what looks like a great movie!

 

There are 3 stupid things the Toronto Blue Jays organization could do this year.  Trade pitcher Marcus Stroman, trade pitcher Aaron Sanchez, & bring 1B Rowdy Tellez to the major league from the minors.  Stroman & Sanchez are both under contract control until the end of 2021.  Rowdy Tellez is a great infielder & hits right handed pitching like he knows the pitch he’s getting & where it will be.  Unfortunately he’s terrible against left handed pitchers, that’s his kryptonite.  He’s more than welcome to prove me wrong in spring training though!
