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.

Our universal remote is doing sketchy stuff again on the charger.  I listen to 2 or 3 albums last night so I’ll use them here I guess.

I fell asleep to “Into Eternity” the album “The Sirens”, “Lenny Kravitz” the album “Mama Said”, & “Lenny Kravitz” his “Greatest Hits”

 

There were 2 things I was terrified of while I was in the WRC.  1 near the beginning of 2009 & the other near the end of thing in 2012.  A tilt table & then a wobble board, both a part of my occupational therapy

My 2 therapists would come to my room & have me lay on the tilt table.  A small step to “stand” on at one end for my feet & nothing else but Velcro straps for my ankles, legs, waist, & chest.  Once I was strapped in they’d tilt the table from 180 degrees to 90 degrees so I was in a standing position.  I remember the one time I was freaking out, my occupational therapist said “That’s only 70 degrees?”  I replied “That’s enough for me!”  I was SO glad that only lasted a few weeks.  She’d bring a bouncy ball to play catch with while I was upright.  I think I made it to 90 degrees eventually?

The other one was called a wobble board, to activate my abs.  Even after the 1,000s of crunches & leg lifts I still don’t think I could do that.  It’s a board you sit on but on the bottom it’s not flat, it’s half of a ball.  She’d raise the table so my feet weren’t touching the ground.  Then she would go behind me & randomly push or pull me in different directions.  All about working on my abs so they’d kick in & help me stay upright, no, my hands were not allowed to touch anything.  I hated that thing, I would go to the therapy room & immediately beg her to not do the wobble board that day.  I was still fairly weak at that point, but she never let me fall.

 

I REFUSE TO STREAM MUSIC!!!!  APPLE, PLEASE DON’T SCREW THIS UP!!!  I DOWNLOAD ONLY OR ELSE I’M LEFT WITH BUYING VERY FEW RECORDS!  NO PHYSICAL SPACE & I CAN’T AFFORD A TON OF THEM!!!!

 

So they’re just making a “better” mouse trap for streaming music?

The music industry is the scientist & we’re the lab rats.  Stop trying to be like everyone else by buying the other companies & maybe try taking a different path, that way you might learn something?  I don’t think many people are happy with the status quo?

THE SMASHING PUMPKINS

“The group that grunge forgot” says singer Billy Corgan.  Is that necessarily a bad thing?  If so, why?  He’s still a working musician, probably making more money than he needs, with less fan fair.  You’d think it would be nice in that situation?  If you’re a working musician making music that you like, great!  You shouldn’t need/want to be the center of attention all of the time.  If you like what you’re doing & millions of other people do, that’s more than enough right there.

I don’t think I have all of their albums but I have quite a few?

 

1991   GISH

 

1993   SIAMESE DREAM

 

1995   MELON COLLIE & THE INFINIT SADNESS (DOUBLE ALBUM)

 

1998   ADORE

 

2000   MACHINA/The Machines of God

From here on my CDs & iTunes are all fluffernutted.  There is a “GREATEST HITS” in here that I got from my brother years ago for Christmas.

 

2014   MONUMENTS TO AN ELEGY

 

2018   SHINY OH SO BRIGHT VOL. 1/ LP: NO PAST.  NO FUTURE.  NO SUN.

8 song album & I’m not much of a fan of the first song.

 

https://ca.yahoo.com/sports/news/bryce-harpers-fit-blue-jays-isnt-fan-fever-dream-181020806.html

I think this is FAKE NEWS.  I don’t rely on www.yahoo.com for news, it seems more like tabloid news.  Outfielder & free agent Bryce Harper is 26 years old, he’s asking for a 10 year deal for $500,000,000.  My issues with that are, nobody in their right mind will sign any player for 10 years.  It’s usually 5 or 6 years.  My 2nd issue is the Toronto Blue Jays have 4 or 5 young guys coming to spring training competing for the 1 outfield position left & they won’t break the bank.  My 3rd issue is $50 million a year nobody will sign him for that much money a year, is he delusional?  Last year the San Francisco Giants had the largest pay roll in baseball at $221,430,000 so he thinks he’ll take roughly a 2/5 of that each year?  Good luck with that one!  He’ll hit 35-45 homeruns, but I’d be out for sure.  Not my money though.  He’s such a catch, I wonder why nobody has signed him yet?  Pitchers & catchers report to Spring Training on Valentine’s Day!

 

The more you share this, the more readers I get.  No, I’m not profiting from this in any way.  I can’t tell who’s reading this but thank you!

Late start to my day. Kim left for work at 7:00 am, I didn’t roll , my lazy butt out of bed until 8:30 am. I much prefer getting up before 8:00 am so I can get things done. For me this is a day of rushing around the place to do what’s needed after my exercises.

I can’t remember what European country it was, iTunes was ruled by a judge that iTunes is illegal since 2013 or 2014. Because you can burn a CD on it. Apple now sells lap-top computers without a CD, DVD or Blu-ray drive. That sounds more illegal than banning the use of iTunes all together. I’m sure the people at Apple could just not include the burning software?

Say you’re sitting around the house & an older song pops into your head maybe you heard it in passing or on a commercial and you say to yourself “Hey, I’ve got that on CD! I should put it on my iPod!” wait, you can’t because you have a new Apple lap top with no CD drive in it. So now you’re going to add the album to your streaming service or buy it on iTunes. More money for Apple (The Rich) & less for you (The not nearly as rich), this sounds illegal to me. Apple is now checking the info on the music you put on your personal iTunes & we’re not allowed to borrow or burn mix CDs because it is now illegal? What was the movie I saw just a few years ago with Ashton Kutcher who made a mix CD for Natalie Portman’s character on her period?

Comedy album anyone?

For the record I’m not a fan of Kiss, Motley Crue, or Sixx AM. Gene Simmons is & will be known as the most outspoken musician in history, Kanye West will be a close 2nd . I don’t listen to any of them. They’re the ones who have the celebrity platform to say what they want, when they want. You can choose to listen or avoid it.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY WONDERFUL WIFE/FINGER ELEVEN

Definitely give this time to load 8,000,000,000,000+ links!

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Queens of the Stone Age” on shuffle. Everything but the Greatest Hits album & ‘Era Vulgaris’

Yes, I saw “Finger Eleven” at The Pump Roadhouse. More cash to see a band in a bar than anyone should ever pay RIDICULOUS! I’ve seen probably 4 or 5 live shows at The Pump. It’s likely not the best live venue in town. Site lines to the stage aren’t very good if you’re seated at a table. Even if you’re standing near the middle or back of the crowd it’s not that great. I didn’t really “see” Finger Eleven last night, I heard them. I sort of expected not to be able to see them, so that really wasn’t a big deal. They did start their set with a bang and a bit of Pink Floyd near the end. The first time I saw Finger Eleven, they were opening for I Mother Earth on the “Blue Green Orange” tour in either late ’99 or early 2000

I solidified my reason for not listening to any local radio station. Before the show Regina’s rock station was playing a ton of post-grunge rock & all of it was terrible for me anyways. I did hear/see one video that was good though, before the show started on time @7 like the tickets said. Only an hour & a half late? ( 8:30 )

Little bit of this near the end!

We heard 2 great songs from their first album as well

I’d like to know if anybody at the show last night had a clue that Finger Eleven “Walking in my Shoes” from their 2nd album, is a Depeche Mode song?

Too bad my brother had to miss seeing his favourite band live due to work training. Sorry Mitch, you missed a good one.

There were 3 bands in total, each played a cover song. The first band played a snippet of a Led Zeppelin song that I can’t remember. He 2nd band played “Come Together” as my dad said in the car after, “I wonder if anyone in the crowd knew that was a cover?”

I guess Canadian punk rockers “GOB” are back? I saw their video on screen while waiting for the show to start. Now they sound like that generic post-grunge music, completely different than their early 2000s & late ’90s sound….

This video was on one of the TVs last night too. Took me back to 2000

Actual video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTggop1K7w8

I wasn’t a fan of GOB, but it’s sad to hear a band completely change their sound in order to survive in the music business today? It could also be that their new sound is what they want to do now?

Toronto Blue Jays won yesterday so it’s back to Kansas City for game 6 of the ALCS

Unfortunately for the Chicago Cubs “Back to the Future” got it wrong. They lost last night in an elimination game against the New York Mets. The Cubs will not win the or even play in the World Series as predicted in Back to The Future. Nice run sorry it’s over Cub fans.

2 things happened on this day in 2002. It was the first birthday for Kim that I was a part of, we started dating in April of 2002. Foo Fighters released their 4th album “One by One” on the same day. I bought copies immediately after class at SIAST. 1 for Kim & 1 for me, yes, I got her something else as well.

In the summer of 1998 I worked with a plumbing company out of Moose Jaw, installing duct work & AC in an Extendicare in Regina. Every morning we’d start at 6:00 before it was too hot in the attic. I’d pull up to work blasting Pearl Jam’s album “Yield”

Stuff like this makes me wonder how those people got their job & how they can forget about it & live with themselves?

Clutch to release new album “Psychic Warfare” on October 2nd 2015!!!! No single yet, here’s the title song from their previous album.

Rock It Out Blog for Wednesday, July 8th

I found a Canadian support center for Apple. Their iTunes Match has been royally screwed up since the launch of their streaming site, Apple Music, on Tuesday, June 30th. Kim will call them after work. I called but they have trouble understanding me & they asked for a serial number I can’t get to? I got through in a matter of seconds, hopefully Kim will too. Hopefully it can be fixed or they will tell us how to delete our very cheap subscription & use home sharing. Seems as though many households are deleting their subscription. $27.99/year to leave your computer off & stream your music library through whatever 5 devices that are approved. As for Apple Music, it’s really more of a radio station. Shows hosted by celebrities & music for rent, you stop paying the monthly fee of $9.99, your music disappears. You don’t technically own it, you rent it. Just because I don’t want it doesn’t mean others don’t.

The new Finger Eleven album sounds like a return to their original sound. There are 3 songs available with a pre-order. The lead off single “Wolves & Doors” for me is the weakest track of the 3. “Five Crooked Lines” & “Gods of Speed” I find to be more towards their sound on the first 2 or 3 albums. Sorry, couldn’t find “Gods of Speed” with decent sound.

“Lamb of God’s” album sounds promising as well!

Streaming music has too many red flags for me. Sure you can listen to streaming music on Apple. You are literally putting money into a radio or jukebox. Once you’ve heard the song you have to keep paying for it, or else it’s gone. All of these streaming sites get me a little worried because as a music fan I want to own my music. I don’t want to wake up on the 1st of every month & say “Well time to pay for that radio station subscription again”. If a band goes on tour to promote their new album they need to go to the little spots, Saskatchewan, Manitoba or Alberta. Anywhere else I’m not going. I’ll go 2.5, 8, 9 or 6 hours away by car to see a concert. If it’s not within that area, I’m not going. I would hope they figure out how to pay artists for their craft with people downloading it from iTunes? You’ve always had a way to purchase or own your music. 8 tracks, cassettes, vinyl, CD & digital formats. If streaming becomes the only way to get music, I’m out.

I really don’t see the point in getting angry & talking about whatever behind someones back, that won’t solve anything. Sure “flaws” are easy to find in others & being blunt is usually not the best way to go about things. Anyone could easily find “flaws” with me, I’m certainly not perfect & never will be. So why bother being angry at all? I don’t want to be that person ever again. I wasn’t like that before, so I can’t explain why I was like that in the previous link to this blog?

There is a difference between being blunt or being rude. I just put those 2 together, & it’s not needed. Likely the 2 least favored qualities put together!

This was part of Canada’s response to the “grunge” music in Seattle in the early ’90s.

Unfortunately I don’t see the murders in Charleston changing anything. Mass shootings in a high school, outside of a mall, elementary school, movie theater & now a church. So where are you safe & not constantly looking over your shoulder? LANGUAGE IN JON OLIVER LINK!!!!

I listened to this album 3 times last night, I couldn’t sleep very well? It’s not a beat you over the head death metal album. It’s a metal album you’d probably hear playing at comic convention. Imagine if the people from the star trek enterprise recorded a metal album? Like meringue, a light & fluffy metal album with songs that will stay in your head. Only 8 songs on it, but all around 5:00 minutes & one song at 10:00-13:00 minutes. This guitar riff sticks in my head.

Opeth & Slipknot sure yes, they are mostly metal. I know there are Tool fans reading this, are they hard rock or metal doesn’t matter either way to me, but I’ve never considered them to be a metal group?

Like I have to play it for you??? I’m going to because I want to hear it!

Clutch could be completely different. Before I read this “….what I really wanted to know was……..” when does the next album come out?

Ozzy & Sharon feel like Metallica’s parents
http://classicrock.teamrock.com/news/2015-05-26/metallica-lars-ulrich-slap-sharon-osbourne

I’ve seen Ozzy live as well as Tool, Foo Fighters, Barenaked Ladies, Big Wreck, The Watchmen, The Mayfield Four, etc. Ozzy & The Mayfield Four once, the rest minimum 4 times. Live is quite often better than the recording, as usual for me!

Neil Young’s about to release a new album June 29th, & tour with Willie Nelson’s son. Notice the headline to the article just says “Willie Nelson’s Son”, not the sons first name? There’s a shadow I’d want to get out of. Jakob Dylan of “The Wallflowers” is Bob Dylan’s son, & this person is this persons child, etc.

Mark Tremonti demoing a 100 watt generator for guitar amp!

HBO for us is $20/month extra for 3 channels otherwise I’d watch John Oliver’s show. He’s hilarious!

I miss these guys & opening for them so I could see them live for free!

Foo Fighters’ set list 2 or 3 songs I could do without. I’d prefer weird album tracks or B-Sides. Pretty good set list though!

Songs I like. “Headstones”

The albums are nowhere near as good as seeing them live. It’s really night & day to compare the 2. Yes the singer is High Dillon from the TV series “Flashpoint”.

I get this news so you don’t have too! There’s probably a crap load of music blog’s out there, but I think between myself, The Needle Drop, The Rock It Out Blog & I can’t remember the name of the rap music blog, we’ve almost got it covered. Not just rock or metal music, but as many types of music we can find/like.

I could never play this fast as much as I like Lamb of God & this album especially!

Yes please!

I don’t expect Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots & Velvet Revolver singer) to return to Velvet Revolver. He needs to be sober & dependable. Do the former members of Guns n’ Roses ever get a dependable singer to work with? Is it them as a group that causes this?
http://loudwire.com/scott-weiland-wouldnt-be-opposed-velvet-revolver-reunion-tour/

I can’t listen to Velvet Revolver other than this one song.

If you don’t like Billy Corgan or Smashing Pumpkins then don’t bother catching up on what he’s doing. I like Smashing Pumpkins & they/Billy is doing press for the album, trying to make sure you hear about it!

I like Lenny Kravitz. Not the NFL though. Too long, 4 hours long shorter, slimmer field & 4 downs. CFL as my very old T-Shirt says “Longer, Wider, Faster”! Baseball is really boring for most, I get that I played it, so I try to think like the pros do & it’s only a 3 hour game. Honestly I’ve all but given up on hockey/NHL. I’ll watch it when Bettman’s not the commissioner & they boot fighting out of the game. If I want to watch fighting I’d watch MMA/UFC or Boxing. I liked the hockey games in the ’80s WAY more! Remember it’s sports ENTERTAINMENT!!!!
