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

Music throughout the weekend.  “Foo Fighters”, “Lynyrd Skynyrd”, “Randy Bachman”, & “Metallica”.

 

On Friday, my dad came to take Brewster & I to my parents’ place a little after 1:00 pm.  Hung out there, played some cards with my cousin & a family friend, Karen, who just had orthoscopic knee surgery.  Kim came after work, as well as Ray, Karen’s better half…………….other half.  Probably safer if I say “other”.

Mom & dad cooked a prime rib sirloin, asparagus, potatoes that I avoided, & another tasty dish that was so good I forget what it was?

Stayed for a bit after a dessert of chocolate & peanut butter ice cream.  Had a few beverages & came home.

Saturday at noon was another pre-season baseball game, & Saturday evening was the concert.  On their Farewell tour with Randy Bachman as the opener.  I finally saw them play “Free Bird”!

We were & still are busy today.  I gave blood for a blood test, nothing crucial, just for a run of the mill doctor appointment.  We grabbed some food at Tim Horton’s.  We were then going to see our “niece” play at a piano recital.  She’s sick today so that was a no go.

Kim picked up some groceries while I waited in the car, we picked up Brewster who was staying with Sherry & James.

I made a juice for the week & the eggs just finished in the instant pot.

 

LYNYRD SKYNYRD

I really paid attention to them beginning in 2007, when I would take my iPod to work.  I’d listen to their double album of “Greatest Hits” & the new “Dream Theater” album “Systematic Chaos” close to 3 hours of my day, then I’d either find something else to listen to or work in silence with noise blocking earmuffs on.  Sometimes I’d just replay both of those albums.

Of course “Free Bird” was the encore song!

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

Music throughout the weekend.  “Dead Sara”, “Barenaked Ladies”, “Testament”, & “Matthew Good Band”

 

Friday ended with us watching “Hannah Gadspy” a Tasmanian comedienne.  It was more of a “Ted Talk” with humour added.  She spoke about what had gotten her to this point in her life, sexual abuse, 2 rapes, being a lesbian, coming out of the closet, etc.  Very entertaining.  She went on a rant at the end.  Kim was crying.  Lots of highs & lows throughout the show.  Really good show!  Quite a few “F – Bombs” throughout the show though.  None in this trailer though…

Saturday we went out in the afternoon Kim needed to take some photos for her photo class, dropped off Brewster & I.  She went for groceries.  I got this post started.  Kim came home with the groceries so I got moving & made my vegetable juice for the week.

Saturday evening we ordered in some Chinese food for supper & rented the movie “Boy Erased” about a son who is gay & his father is a pastor at a Christian Church.  The movie starts out with the son going to his first of 12 days at a conversion center.  I think this movie would be great if you also watch the movies “Red State” & “Spotlight”.  “Red State” could be difficult to watch with all of the language & violence.  “Boy Erased” is based on a true story.  I think every religious leader needs to wake up & see this movie.

I believe in God & consider myself a Christian. You know that part in the bible that says ‘…bring us your rich, poor, weak, & strong etc…’  Do we have to spell it out for others?  Do we need to adjust it to say “Everyone” including the LGBTQ community?  I really don’t care if you’re a part of a different religion, race, or sexuality or anything else.  Are you a good person?  If you are let’s hang out & be friends.

I was fired up watching that movie.  A lot of me commenting on the utter fear/stupidity of all of the homophobic characters.  It’s from 2018 and finishes saying there are still 700,000 conversion camps still in operation.  I don’t believe that sexuality is a choice, I believe it’s how you were born.  I didn’t choose to be straight, that’s how I was born.   Who makes gay people?  Straight people!

Woke up for lunch when Kim popped her head in the bedroom & said she was going to “Tim Horton’s”.  She’s done the laundry I believe, just eggs to hard boil & Kim wants to take some pictures in the house.  She left for “Tim Horton’s” & Brewster found that to be the perfect time to throw up twice once I made my way into the kitchen.  Poor guy, at least he knew to get off of his blanket & bed to throw up on the laminate floor.

 

Metal screaming is not easy.  You may not like it, but don’t say it’s easy!

 

I’ll believe it when I see it.  Does this mean Tool will start thinking about song ideas?

Just had to watch “Trivium” accept “Grammy Nominee Awards” of screen.  I’m assuming this is because they are a metal group, so they aren’t main stream music, ugh!

 

 

LYNYRD SKYNYRD

I will get to see them this year here in Regina!  I can’t wait!  When I was working I’d put on my iPod & just go.  One “Dream Theater” album “Systematic Chaos” was just released & “Lynyrd Skynyrd’s” double album of ‘Greatest Hits’ & I was good for 5 – 6 hours.  I’ll see them & my parents are anxious to see Randy Bachman.  I’ve been a ‘Lynyrd Skynyrd’ fan for a while, since 2006 or so.  All I have is their Greatest Hits album though.

5 day weekly total; 600 pushups, 360 tricep pushups, 150 back flexes, 400 leg lifts, 200 crunches, 240 squats.  Some walking also.

I fell asleep to “In Flames” the album “Colony”

I exercised to “Lynyrd Skynyrd” a double album of their Greatest Hits

 

BOOOOO!  No new wheelchair until August 28th!  BOOOOOO!

I now know what my problem has been all week.  Monday & Tuesday were the worst days of the week.  It got better as the week progressed.  Sunday night & Monday night I didn’t sleep well at all.  I actually had a nap on Wednesday afternoon, I fell asleep very quickly.  I’m usually wide awake for an hour when I hit the hay.  I was out cold on Wednesday afternoon, & at bedtime the last few nights.  Today I felt more like myself.  “Exhausted” from my workout, but it’s the weekend!

I would love to take a break but I really don’t know how to relax, so a break won’t help in that respect, & a break means more difficult work to get to where I am physically.

Many people have no clue what I can or can’t do.  Fair enough, I surprise myself sometimes regarding what I can or can’t do.  If I can’t do something on my own, I’ll ask for help & approach it a different way on my own next time, if I can’t do it on my own I’ll ask for help again, etc.  After multiple attempts I’ll decide if I need help each time or if I can do it on my own.

 

Blu-ray, DVD, & possibly 4K on September 7th!

REALLY!  I wish I was ½ that good!

 

Keep Calm & wait patiently new Tool is not finished yet.  It’s been 12 years, we can all wait some more.

60 seconds with Randy Blythe from Lamb of God

 

I googled apple iTunes regarding the elimination of downloads from the iTunes store & found nothing solid that it will continue to exist or be phased out early next year.  Every link denounced the previous link.  So, I’m not sure what’s true & what’s not?  There are so many streaming sites out there, you’d think Apple would keep a download site open?  I don’t know about the cost of offering both streaming & downloading.  I personally would prefer to own my music through downloading it rather than streaming it.  Call me any name you like, I’ll cross that bridge if it happens.

“Opeth will release Garden of the Titans: Live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on November 2nd via Moderbolaget Records / Nuclear Blast Entertainment. This historic event was captured for the DVD, Blu-Ray and Vinyl formats during their performance May 11th, 2017 at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver, CO. Both the DVD and Blu-ray formats include CDs containing the audio as well.”

Yep, I’ve struggled with depression for most of my life.  There is no shame if you need to talk to someone, even a complete stranger.  I’m on anti-depressants, no shame in that either.

Unwritten rule in the MLB!  You NEVER throw a fastball, for that matter a 97mph fastball, at a player!  The pitcher got a slap on the wrist with a 6 game suspension.  He’ll miss 1 start as a starting pitcher.  I say “OK, your seasons over!”

If you don’t want to pitch to him, give him an intentional walk or lob a curve ball at him if you’re angry.

 

“Got my ‘geek’ on”

Yes, we bought “Avengers: Infinity War” on Tuesday, & watched it for the first time EVER that night.  Great popcorn movie!  Check your brain at the door & be very entertained!  I did have a few minor issues with it though, well 3 if were keeping track.

The Story Line.

I hope George Lucas got some royalties for a portion of the writing.  I was thinking “Wow, I’ve seen a very similar story line throughout the original ‘Star Wars’ trilogy.”  Father saves his child while the child must fight against father.

 

SCENE STEALING

Did they actually steal an early scene from ‘Batman vs. Superman’?  Near the beginning of the film?  Tony Stark runs into the street to find nothing but mayhem & everyone running for their life.  Same scene almost frame by frame of Bruce Wayne running into mayhem at the beginning of ‘Batman vs. Superman’.

 

VILLAINS

The main villain has an army much like the villain in ‘Justice League’.  The army in “Avengers: Infinity War” looked much like the ones in ‘Stranger Things, season 2’.  Maybe I was thinking too much?  These 3 things stuck out like a sore thumb to me, blatant rip-offs that they didn’t even try to hide.

Those were the only things about the movie that bothered me.  Other than that it was a FANTASTIC movie!  I enjoy both comic book titans, Marvel & DC.

I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “Silence in the Snow” followed by “In Flames” the album “Sounds of a Playground Fading”

 

I exercised to “Slipknot” the album “5 The Gray Chapter”

 

500 crunches, 500 leg lifts, 375 pushups, 200 back flexes, & 25 minutes of planking.

That’s 100 crunches, 100 leg lifts, 75 pushups, 40 back flexes, & 5 minutes of planking each working day.

I think I figured out a portion, maybe all about a re-occurring dream I’ve been having since I was in the WRC.

I continually dream that I’m late for high school & I have an English paper that’s WAY overdue.  I get to school & have no clue as to what my locker combination is.

In University in 1999 my grandmother died of breast cancer.  I was a mess at the time.  I skipped out on an English final & drove to Moose Jaw & back instead.  With the 3rd Foo Fighters’ album that had just been released in November blasting the entire time.  My grandmother passed away on December 5th, 1999.

I guess that dream is more about me having some type of unfinished business to deal with?  Maybe it’s nothing & I’m reading too much into it?

No Trump talk!  You know what I think about him & you’re entitled to your own take on him!  I have never & will never condone violence to ANYONE.  If I thought it would change anything I’d give Trump a slap upside the head.

I’m typically not a political person.  Canadian politics bore me & I choose not to vote.  If I lived in the USA that would be different.  I watch too much CNN, since watching Trump lead the USA is much like his campaign x 100.

 

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

 

It’s August, there’s very little music being released & not much for music news but here’s what I could find.

 

Audio interview with Chris Adler, drummer for Lamb of God.

 

Audio interview with Corey Taylor, singer for Stone Sour & Slipknot.

 

Audio interview with Royal Blood.

 

 

Poor camera man!  Kim & I just laughed & laughed & laughed………..

 

When I was working, I’d listen to my iPod a double album of “Lynyrd Skynyrd” their Greatest Hits & “Systematic Chaos” by Dream Theater, or the odd podcast.  One ear bud in my right ear, other one down my shirt.  Noise cancelling headphones on.  Those 2 albums would pretty much last my 8 hour shift.

 

A 2nd song from Jack Johnson!!!!!

 

A PBS concert\documentary regarding Foo Fighters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/foo-fighters-rock-the-acropolis-in-landmarks-live-trailer-w498301

 

Jimmy Kimmel reads mean tweets from Trump supporters.

http://www.rollingstone.com/tv/news/jimmy-kimmel-reads-mean-tweets-from-angry-trump-supporters-w498287

 

Jose Bautista is too old to be the face of the franchise, he’ll probably ask for too much next year whoever he signs with & he’s a whiner.  Have fun on the Free Agent market at the end of the year, if you’re still with the Blue Jays at the end of August.

If Jose Bautista can hit 30 home runs this year, I still don’t think I’d renew his contract of $18,000,000.  Troy Tulowitzki & Jose Bautista would be the first of many players I’d try to dump on whoever wants to pay for a name.  Right there is $38,000,000 off the books of players not living up to their contracts!

 

My album of the year for whatever year it was, was “Nothing but Thieves” self-titled debut album.  Their 2nd album is being released on September 8th this year & here are the 3 singles they have released thus far…

It’s not close to hard rock, rock, or metal.  Lots of people my age & younger will not like this group.  I’m OK with that, for any music I listen to, I never said you had to like it.

August 25th new Queens of the Stone Age, September 8th Nothing But Thieves, Alter Bridge anthology, & Jack Johnson, September 15th Foo Fighters.  After that, who knows?

Anyone who has been reading this knows I’m very anti-cell phone.  I don’t have a problem with a cell phone really, it’s more with the way some people choose to use them.  If I’m at a concert & someone is taking a video in my line of sight to the stage, please DON’T do that.  I paid as much as you did to watch a concert.  Not through your 4” screen on your cell phone.  If you want to video a song or 2 go ahead, take 3 or 4 pictures.  Please learn that other people are there & not taking a video of the entire show like you are.  Ask people around you if you’re blocking their view of the stage.  If you want to sit at the show & text with someone the entire time, that’s fine.  I don’t understand why you’d pay for a ticket to chat with people who aren’t there, but if that’s what you want to do, that’s fine with me.  Everyone will use their cell phone differently.  Just please learn live show etiquette?  YOU have every right to use your phone as you choose, maybe make sure it’s not a distraction to others near you?

If I get a cell phone, I’ll likely use it differently than you do.  I’ll use it my way & you can use it your way.  If we are bothering others, we’d better ask if how we’re using it is a problem.  You’re told to turn off your phone in theaters before the movie starts.  I think that rule should be at any live venue as well?

I was thinking to myself the other day. I must have been “The Best of What’s Around” for a third baseman when I played baseball. If you’re a back catcher, 2nd baseman, short stop or center fielder, hitting is a bonus, defense is usually the priority at those positions. If you’re plying any spot other then the ones mentioned or pitcher, you had better be able to hit. I couldn’t hit at all. Every game though I’d show up & look at the lineup for the game & 99% of the time it was Chris Fraser batting 9th, playing 3B.

I don’t know how good I was, but I wasn’t ever afraid of the ball. If the ball was hit in my direction, I’d attack it, like I was taught to. As long as it didn’t get passed me I was satisfied! I don’t remember ever diving for a ball, I did throw to 1B on the run though.

Knowing who was at bat always helped, more so knowing their batting tendencies & where the ball would be hit. I remember the lead off hitter for the Moose Jaw team would almost always hit a ground ball to me. Usually it was a guaranteed out. Bounce 2 or 3 times, smother the ball & toss him out at first base, roughly 127′ away.

I know exactly why people get bored watching baseball. It’s a physical reaction every pitch to the chess game going on in a players head. Everybody on defense has somewhere to be no matter where the ball is hit. When a hitter comes to the plate, you should be thinking of 8-10 different possibilities, and they change with each pitch.

The hitter & runner are thinking through different scenarios as well with each pitch. When I sit down to watch a ball game, I think along with the players. That’s why I watch as much Blue Jays baseball as possible!

EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL

I fell asleep to “Sevendust” the album “Kill the Flaw”

I exercised to “Alter Bridge” the album “ABIII”

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

https://www.facebook.com/A-Million-Miles-Away-Blog-1597618270456002/?ref=hl

If you’re following the blog on my personal Facebook page, could you please follow it on the link above? Just for me to keep track of subscribers.

www.amillionmilesawayblog.com for email

Exercise total for the week ;7500 crunches, 600 leg lifts, 300 squats, & 210 push ups. Started out Monday & only got to 20 pushups, hit my goal of 40 on Tuesday, then 50 for the remaining days. I was doing them on Wednesday, got to 20 for my first set & figure I had enough in the tank to do a few more. Now it’s 2 sets of 25 each day. Every exercise is like that now, I just go as much as I can then rest & match that amount in the following of my sets, be it 2, 3, or 4 sets.

Monday-Friday I do 1500 crunches, 120 leg lifts, 60 squats, & 50 push ups. 5 day a week. Once I finish that I usually have my breakfast right after of fruit & vegetables mixed in our Vitamix/blender, do a blog post then hit the shower or watch something on Netflix or one of the movies we own.

I find that I have more energy “these days”, & I continue to push myself more! As long a I have the time to focus on my exercise & of course loved ones, I seem to be in a much better mood than I have been in years. (Instead of being a “grumpy old man” at the age of 36).

Brewster drives me nuts on occasion especially if he hears a loud noise or if there’s a thunder storm coming on. Kim took him to the Vet earlier this week, all is well other than 2 things $1300-$1500 to get his teeth cleaned (a lot of plaque on his back teeth) we’ll see if we can do that in the fall? He’s also now on puppy Valium for thunder, like Thur evening. It’s bad for his liver if he has it on a regular basis, so the Vet said to give him half of a pill when needed & it worked Thursday! He wasn’t trying to hide in the bathroom, shaking, or panting like he normally does if he hears thunder. He was playing with us & then fell asleep on the floor.

I have an old Mudvayne album, but I never listen to it? I think this is on it? Yes it is, I had to check my CDs.

I will never understand why so many people have said over the years that this is the best solo EVER? It’s art, so it’s subjective. Did anyone ever consider “Free Bird” by Lynyrd Skynyrd or any other song at all? I heard this on the radio as a poll from listeners while I was sick & I just listened to the Tremonti interview I posted yesterday and Mark Tremonti says it’s his most preferred song he’s ever written. OK I can get on the train where he says it’s his favourite Alter Bridge song, but best solo ever?

I really like Soundgarden & I’m sure others will already have picked their number 1 album, mine is “Badmotorfinger”

Motley Crue are a bit dysfunctional.
