I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the album “Concrete & Gold”, followed by “Big Wreck” the album “Grace Street”, & finally “Paramore” the album “All We Know is Falling”

I exercised to “Big Wreck” the album “In Loving Memory of…”

 

500 pushups, 500 crunches, 500 leg lifts, 200 back flexes, 100 triceps pushups

My hobbies prior to cancer were playing baseball from the age of 4 to 17.  Then singing in my high school choir, and singing & playing guitar in a handful of local rock bands.

I threw my arm out at 17 playing on 2 teams.  It still hurt a bit when the next season came around, so I opted out on playing baseball that year & just stopped.

Singing & playing guitar was my next hobby.  I think the last show I played was for a charity that helps those who are handicapped in Saskatchewan called “Kinsmen Telemiracle” just prior to me getting sick & getting help from that charity to purchase the wheelchair van when I could leave the WRC for the evening.

I haven’t felt any source of entitlement or great pride in quite some time.  I do like the fact that I’m able to do more things on my own, & that I’m able to achieve my exercise goals.  I really have nothing to complain about.  I still can’t speak very well.  I can’t sing obviously & practicing guitar is very frustrating.  Before I went into the hospital, I picked up guitar quite easily.  Now, my brain knows what to do, my hands don’t agree, especially my left hand!

I refused to play some songs I didn’t like.  Even my own songs I wrote in the first group I was a part of!  I wrote 3 songs but really didn’t like 2 of them, unfortunately the other guys did.  Found out the hard way I should just write the lyrics.  I guess a cover band is the way to figure things out.

Now I listen to a TON of music, & watch as much Blue Jays baseball as possible.  I follow the NHL as a scoreboard watcher, I only watch a minimal amount of the games though.  GO MONTREAL & EDMONTON!  Those are my teams.

 

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

 

From the looks of it on Facebook, “Halestorm” is recording their 4th studio album.  I’m guessing a release date by the end of March?

This is the time of year Facebook really slows down as far as music & other pop culture stuff slows down.  There will be American Thanksgiving, then Christmas.  I have one more album being released this year in a few weeks.  So here I’ll review albums that have meant a LOT to me.

U2 “The Joshua Tree”.  I was a big U2 fan for a long time, I still go back to many U2 albums.  My mother bought me this album for Easter one year, & regretted it the second I wound out my boom box listening to it.

 

The other BIG U2 album for me was/is “Achtung Baby”

 

Then the album “Pop” by U2 was released & was met with divided fans.  I loved it, but was struck by a Canadian band in 1992 & another in 1996!

I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “The Sin & the Sentence”, followed by “Nothing but Thieves” the album “Broken Machine”, followed by “Queens of the Stone Age the album “Villains”

 

I exercised to “Boston” the self-titled album.  “…I turned on some music to start my day….”

Very short album though!

Do you ever feel overwhelmed with the amount of Donald Trump on social media?  I do & I try to avoid it as much as possible.  He’s just EVERYWHERE!  We’ll see what happens in the next week or so?  Harvey Weinstein has been singled out as a sexual monster, yet Trump seems to have avoided his accusers?  I think Trump deserves the same fate as Weinstein or worse since Trump is president?  !  How do you go from the best president in my lifetime to the worst ever?

I live in Canada & I avoid politics, yet I’m bombarded with Trump non-sense every waking hour, I’m not on twitter, & I don’t own a cell phone!

Unfortunately cancer didn’t make Trump disappear, just me for 4 ½ years.  As much as I don’t like Trump, I would never wish for anyone to be harmed in any way.  If you ask me, he’s just making work for the next president to tend to!

 

THAT’S ALL FOR WHAT’S ON MY MIND & CANCER TALK!  HERE COMES THE POPCULTURE STUFF!

Alice Cooper with Foo Fighters!

 

Jimmy Kimmel is with his family this week as his youngest son (maybe a year old) is having issues with his heart again.  His child was born with heart issues.  I wish the best for Jimmy Kimmel & his family.  There’s a different host on his show each night this week.

 

 

KELLY CLARKSON (Meaning of Life)

If you’ve ever wondered if she could pull off Aretha Franklin, the question is YES.  Fantastic album with a throwback feel to the 60s, 70s, & early 80s.  Here are a few previous hits.

I don’t own all of her albums.  I’ve got a song or 2 from her 1st & 3rd album.  I have nothing from her previous album “Piece by Piece”.  This new album “Meaning of Life” is VERY good, so here are a few tracks from it.
