I fell asleep to “Nothing but Thieves” their self-titled debut album.  Their 2nd album “Broken Machine” is out in September!

I exercised to “Alice in Chains” the album “Facelift”.  Alice in Chains were labeled as a metal group that gained success with the grunge movement.  If the media labeled them as metal, Soundgarden could easily been thrown into that mix.

Sunday ended with us having supper in Corey & Jolene’s back yard.  We were guinea pigs for the new smoker, we’re alive, the meat was tasty & safe!

I really had to check my pride at the door at WRC.  I’d have a bath once a week, every patient had a schedule for a bath once a week.  Complete strangers saw me naked, covered me up once I was on the gurney, take me to the bath, lower me into the bath & wash me or more often Kim would wash me.  It was awkward at first for me but I got over that pretty fast.

When I started this blog & acted like Trump or worse I thought I truly deserved something fantastic.  I beat a life threatening disease, & everyone was calling me a “Hero”.  I bought in to everybody’s hype & forgot how to remain humble.  What should I have done instead?  Remain humble, not let the hype get to me, & just be thankful to be alive, which is good enough for me!  Unfortunately I realized that later than I should have.  When I mess something up, I truly am my own worst enemy.

What made me think of entitlement?  There was a guy who was doing physiotherapy at the same time as I was with my occupational therapist.  He flipped out on the physiotherapist, started swearing at her, pointed to me and yelled “I WANT TO BE DOING WHAT HE’S DOING!” The next day when I had physiotherapy I apologized to my physiotherapist, telling her “Sorry you had to deal with that garbage yesterday”.  She replied “It comes with the territory”.  I told her “It shouldn’t though”.

I’ll admit that I had a rough day also.  I didn’t yell or swear at anyone.  I just said “No, not today!  I’m tired & I don’t feel like doing anything!”  I went for a short walk with my walker, Kim, & my physiotherapist.  I apologized the next day for my behavior.  My therapist said “That’s OK.  Everyone has a rough day once in a while”.  However you want to look at it, it’s not right!  What I should have said initially is “Sorry, I’m tired & I need a day off from therapy today.  Is it OK if I take today off?”

Guess who was sitting next to me in our (mom, dad, & I) Saskatchewan Roughrider season ticket seats?  The guy who flipped out that one day in therapy.  I don’t like what he did but, forgive & forget I guess, it’s done now.

 

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

 

The countdown for the new Royal Blood album is out Thursday @ midnight eastern time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2 days

 

They’re both very HEAVY metal musicians, if this happens it could go either way for me.

So it’s Monday in the late morning & I just found out The Watchmen are co-headlining the Queen City Exhibition!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  WOOT WOOT

 

Finally “Despicable Me 3” in theaters June 30th.  I’ve been waiting for the release date to be announced!

 

I was emptying the dishwasher after my exercise & breakfast.  Then realized it has been a while since I’ve listened to this album……………..

 

So many people like to go on youtube or any type of social media & just drop a HUGE pile of crap on how much they dislike a movie, album, song, etc.  I’m guilty of doing that also.  OK, could you have done anything even remotely close to that?  Maybe, maybe not?  Until you can & have you might as well keep quiet.  When you do will your feelings be hurt if 2 out of 3 people just demolish your “art” on social media?  If you don’t like it, why are you even involved with anything to do with it?  Leave it alone & walk away or voice your opinion your own www.youtube.com channel dedicated to finding flaws in everything!  Most of us are old enough to make up our own mind!

 

I record & watch Jimmy Fallon & Conan the day after the late night showing.  I’m currently watching Jimmy Fallon.  Everybody rush out & get some “Tonight Dough” Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, 100% of the proceeds go to child charity.  You can eat ice cream while helping out & say “I had to do it for the kids!”  Just like miracle treat day at Dairy Queen!

Oddly enough, I was listening to this “Fleetwood Mac” album on Monday!

 

I think “Queens of the Stone Age” will be releasing their album soon?  Their Facebook page is active lately?  It will be their follow up to “…Like Clockwork” & 7th studio album!

 

Ozzfest meets Knotfest.  Probably too much metal for me?

http://loudwire.com/ozzfest-meets-knotfest-return-2017/

I have no problem with Ozzy Osbourne, Slipknot are OK I just prefer Slipknot Light, Stone Sour!

 

Just to cool not to share!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

The majority of metal fans are great people, just like every other community.  There’s a bad apple in every community.  Metal fans tend to get a “bad reputation.”

It’s gay pride week so if you’re an #LGBTQ member in or out of the closet, I fully support you as long as you’re a kind person.  If someone picks on you or makes fun of you because of your sexuality, I hope you have the strength to brush it off.  There are many idiots out there, but there’s also many people like me who fully support you!  Please don’t live a lie about your sexuality “Be Yourself” & own it.

New Halestorm tune on Monday! YIPEE!

^^I’ve seen females front a band but she plays guitar as well. I haven’t seen that since Joan Jett or Chrissie Hynde in The Pretenders.

Gene Simmons is quite vocal about “rock” bands that shouldn’t use backing tracks or samples. Didn’t Kiss do that on a “live” album? I thought he said rock music is dead a few months ago in 2014? Which is it Gene? I guess he means it’s OK for KISS to do it, but nobody else? Don’t do what you do, do as I say?

Old news about global album release day, but here’s a reminder.
http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/music-industry-sets-friday-as-new-global-release-day-20150226

Yes, I like The Agonist quite a bit, probably music for metal fans only.

From their 1st album in 2007. I bought this on CD

I like Rush, post 1985 Rush, & I hear more nay sayers in reference to Rush than I do positive comments towards them that’s fine I get it. I was a Rush hater until last year or 2013. Some music I just don’t listen to for years, then I’ll listen to it once & say to myself “What is wrong with you/me??? This is really good”

FYI-Geddy Lee of Rush plays bass on this song.

Blur is releasing a new album “WOO HOO”

I wasn’t a “Blur” fan or an “Oasis” fan in the ’90s. Now I don’t listen to “Blur” at all, but I’m in with “Oasis” always liked them. “Blur” or “Gorillaz” no thanks. “Gorillaz” have the same guy on lead vocals as “Blur”. Blur & Oasis would bicker & argue publically in the ’90s, they were mortal enemies.

This guy is in there, really good acoustic album

Apple just seems to make mistakes & more mistakes since Steve Jobs died. He’s a smart guy but not a great person to work with from what I’ve seen in documentaries about him, I have no first hand evidence of this though.

This what could potentially happen when the drummer writes a song.

I think what ever his name is should learn an instrument with the kids. Cool video, bad song.
