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

I fell asleep to “Tool” the album “10,000 Days”

I exercised to “The Darkness” their “Greatest Hits”

 

It’s official, next CFL season I’ll be splitting a season ticket with my mother.  I’ll go to half of the games & the Grey Cup game.  That will be my final season at the games.  A needed expense popped up, so we need the money.  Kim wanted to possibly move next year, but that’s not even a consideration now!

The expense you ask?  Kim smashed her teeth when she was quite young on a waterslide.  Her front 4 teeth are fake & she’s been wanting to fix them since before I knew her.  She’s getting 6 crowns on her front teeth.  Hello line of credit!  Nice hit just before we get Christmas gifts.  It will be over a month before she’s able to get them.

I’ve been doing my regular exercise total, rest & watch some TV, then do a little more exercise.  This should help in the long run, I hope!  I think I’ll stick with that 4 days a week & Fridays I’ll do my regular total.  I need to get my butt walking more with my walker.  Since Kim & I are so full of energy in the evening!  Yeah, that was saturated with sarcasm.

Yesterday & already today before I did my morning exercises, I was already tired.  Now that I’ve done my morning exercises, I just want to nap.  Lots of daylight left though, more work to be done!

I haven’t had my third appointment at the mental health clinic yet.  The increase in that one pill seems to have really mellowed my frustration/anger.  If I run into a situation I feel I might blow up on, I take a few seconds to realize how insignificant it is & calm down.

I need to realize I’m in a wheelchair, the same as I was yesterday & it won’t change overnight.  I also need to realize that I can’t change other people, they have to do it themselves.  I was picking out what I thought were flaws in others, but guess who has the most flaws at the moment?  ME!

I should know better to shut my yap & learn something.  At the same time, when do I get to talk?  If someone is struggling with something that I know about, I’d rather help than sit around & listen to that person bicker with the issue.

 

I’m still not positive if he’s guilty of murder?

Does this not sound like the SRC promises in high school that even the kids couldn’t promise would happen.  “I CAN’T make Coca Cola come out of the water fountains, but I can promise you this….”  Bernie, please go back to high school, SRC candidates know better than to literally promise the moon.

“Tool” guitarist, Adam Jones, had anxiety regarding fans dumping on singer, Maynard James Keenan, taking the heat from fans during 13 year wait for the new album.

With this single 13 years went by fast if there will be 6 or 7 more songs like this come August 30th.

How dare, an 8th grader draw a bands logo on his school book or use their lyrics in a report.  If he credited the lyrics, they have no case.  The logo can also be interpreted as advertising.  I like “Metallica” but this is beyond ridiculous!  I wrote “Barenaked Ladies” lyrics on my grade 10 notebook, lock me away & throw away the key.

All of us fans of “Tool” can now rejoice & worry no more for being criticized for listening to “Tool”.  Yep, there are people out there who don’t like them, no, I’m not one of them.

Why are we still waiting for a new “System of a Down” album?

 

BILLIE EILISH

I know very little about her.  Kim & I saw her perform on “Ellen”.  I haven’t bought her album yet, but I fully intend to.  I don’t stream music, however I’m streaming this one for now.

I’m hooked on her 2nd album “When we fall asleep, where do we all go?”  Not really full on pop music more like alternative pop or alternative.  No loud guitars or screaming.  More whispered melodies, it’s different, refreshing, & I just let it play on repeat.

 

2019   WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?

When you’re a “Foo Fighters” nut like me & you see Dave Grohl in the audience of “The Ellen Degeneres Show” because he’s a fan of the musical guest, you know it will probably be great!

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

Music from this weekend!  “Greta Van Fleet”, “Nothing But Thieves”, “Live”, “A Perfect Circle”, “Coheed and Cambria”, & “Halestorm”

 

Really quiet here.  I realized on Friday I had some other TV shows recorded on our PVR.  I watched them & one episode of “Making a Murderer” before Kim got home.  She had many TV shows to watch on the PVR, of course we watched “The Elle Degeneres Show” first, as usual.

Saturday I moved from our bed to our couch & kitchen.  Cereal, yogurt & rum, TV (not all at the same time) later on.  Then 4 episodes of “Making a Murderer”.  Kim is sort of watching it too.

Today, Kim got up & went for coffee with Jolene.  The 4 of us met each other in SIAST.  Corey & Jolene were engaged a week or 2 before us & married roughly 4 months after us.  Really good people, great friends, & awesome parents to our “niece” & “nephew”.

Went over to our friends’ place this afternoon, Chris & Laurie’s for an afternoon visit, also really good people, friends, & they also have 2 cool kids.

Now it’s get ready for the week time.

 

Review of “Greta Van Fleet” & “The Struts”.  The Struts’ 2nd album is not actually out until October 26th.

CLASSIC BANDS   PART 1

These are the masterpieces.  Great bands that I like from before my time!

“Queen”

 

“Led Zeppelin”

That’s why ‘Physical Graffiti’ is my favourite LZ album

 

“The Beatles”

I saw ‘Our Lady Peace’ cover this, & now ‘The White’ album is my favourite ‘Beatles’ album!

 

“Stevie Wonder”

Stevie Wonder’s ‘Songs in the Key of Life’ is easily my favourite Stevie Wonder album.  I should just add this song to it…

 

“The Police”

 

“Pink Floyd”

 

“The Jackson 5”

 

“Alice Cooper”

WEEKLY EXERCISE TOTAL/ COHEED & CAMBRIA

The www.youtube.com links are there for a point of reference if you don’t know what I’m talking about.

No such thing as a stupid question!  Ask me & I’ll try to break it down for you!

Facebook subscription https://www.facebook.com/A-Million-Miles-Away-Blog-1597618270456002/

Email subscription www.amillionmilesawayblog.com

5 day exercise total; 400 pushups, 300 tricep pushups, 300 back flexes, 360 squats, 600 leg lifts, 300 crunches.

I fell asleep to “The Trews” the album “House of Ill Fame”

I exercised to “Dead Sara” the self-titled debut album

This was intended to be earlier.  I got up at 7:30, the power was out from 8:00 to 9:50.  Brewster was freaking out, he has bad anxiety, we have small doses of valium for him, I didn’t want to give it to him.  Instead I spent all of that time with him on my lap, while I had breakfast & got as much ready as I could for my exercise & shower.  Even when the power came back on he was still freaking out.  We had about an hour where he’d freak out at the front closet, or approach it & I would clap my hands to make him stay out of that area, he hates loud noises so that’s what the clapping was for.

I’ve done my exercises, time to shower & have lunch soon.

I’ve decided pushups & triceps will be on Tuesdays & Thursdays, everything else will be Mondays, Wednesdays, & Fridays.

When I meet someone new, I get quiet after telling them I had brain cancer.  That’s always the first thing I tell people when I meet them.

I don’t want cancer to define me, & I’ve got no problem answering any questions they may have.  I’m just not a fan of telling my story over & over.  As much as I don’t want cancer to define me, it will always be a portion of what defines me.  I figure, there is no hiding my wheelchair or iPatch.  Might as well get that part out in the open & forget about it.

Other things that define aren’t visible, other than I wear shorts year round.  “Aren’t you cold?” is something I often hear in the winter.  If I was cold I wouldn’t be wearing shorts & a hoodie with my tuque & gloves.  I’m usually over heated, so shorts it is, who needs pants?  Pants are only for special occasions!

Other than shorts, an iPatch, & a wheelchair, there’s a TON more to me.  I do tend to shy away from large group gatherings because there are 2 things I don’t want to say to people.  “Hey, read my blog” & I don’t want to barf out why I’m in a wheelchair, with an iPatch, & why my speech is hard to understand.

The previous blog should have been titled TECHNOLOGY/BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN.

Well I’ll be glued to Netflix watching the 2nd season of “Making a Murderer”, as long as they don’t push it back to air this time.

And the plot thickens some more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Remember what happened last time Foo Fighters took a break?  Dave got bored, they recorded an album, released it, & started touring after 1 year “off”

Anybody watching “Orange is the new Black” on Netflix?  I gave up after a few episodes of the 3rd season.

How many covers do we need of the song “Shout” I have this original version by “Tears for Fears” on my iPod, but no other ones, don’t need the rest.

OK, I’m biased I REALLY LIKE Big Wreck!

A balmy +28 Celcius inside here Wednesday & a balmy +26 Celcius in here on Thursday.

Two albums released today “Greta Van Fleet” & a 4 song EP from “Nothing but Thieves”

 

COHEED & CAMBRIA

8 studio albums & a few live albums.  I have 5 studio albums.  I only really listen to 2 of them.  My friend Elka turned me on to them.  They’re a progressive rock band.  The singer’s voice is quite high, so I’m sure they won’t be for everyone.  I got the albums only in digital form.  They recently released “The Unheavenly Creatures”.  It’s on my iPod on repeat since it’s release on October 5th to the 14th.  Here’s a few tracks from “The Color Before the Sun” & “The Unheavenly Creatures”……

4 day exercise total; 400 pushups, 300 tricep pushups, 200 back flexes, 240 squats, 400 leg lifts, 200 crunches.

I fell asleep to “Coheed & Cambria” the album “The Unheavenly Creatures”

I exercised to “Foo Fighters” the album “Wasting Light”

 

 

The thing I forget to do is stretch before my exercises.  I’ll start doing my exercise, then stop everything & stretch.  That’s a regular part of my routine, unfortunately walking isn’t.  If I had kept up with my walking, using a walker on my own wouldn’t be out of the question right now, I think?

Once I’m done my exercises on Fridays, my work week is over.  I work 1 ½ hour ASAP.  I’ll do some stuff around the house, I’ll make sure Brewster’s bowls are full, have my breakfast, shower, then hit the couch, sometimes with a coffee or usually with a full liter of water.

Fridays & Saturdays or special occasions are the only evenings I have alcohol.  2 or 3 on each evening.  The sugar in the alcohol usually makes me get up quite early.  The last time I had a hangover would have been before I got sick, 2007 or early in January of 2008.

 

What kind of world is this???  I don’t care if you’re a democrat, republican, white, black, brown, gay, transgender, straight, male, female, etc.  Are you a respectful human?  If so the USA could use your help in the White House.  Things are getting spooky south of us.

We certainly don’t need more guns in the world, but if you own a 3D printer & look on the dark web, I hear you can create one.  At this point the USA needs to ban semi-automatic guns & now 3D printers.  Thanks technology for creating printable guns, drones & robots or sex robots that I hear you can set to kill you, etc.  Anybody else think technology has gone too far now?

 

Well, Making a Murderer, wasn’t on Netflix last Friday.  I hear it’s coming on Friday, October 19th, according to Netflix.

So Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath is amazed that Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones is still alive.  Goes to show that just because you listen/play metal music doesn’t mean you’re an addict.  Hahahahaha!  Metallica & Dave Mustaine of Megadeth & Lamb of God are all sober too.

http://loudwire.com/black-sabbath-tony-iommi-amazed-kieth-richards-still-alive/

Guess who’s playing drums & singing?  I’ll give you a hint, it rhymes with rave roll!  Good luck finding this album.  I bought it on CD the day it came out, it’s now out of print & not on any digital music service.

 

Ah, crap!  Just when you think “Lethal Weapon” is in the clear this happens!

 

New video from “Halestorm”

 

Reminder for November 2nd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

This is beyond weird.  How does a rap group take home “Best pop/rock duo”?

What does Corey Taylor (vocalist for Slipknot & Stone Sour) think about the music industry, regarding rock & metal music?

 

800,000,000 iTunes users vs. 50,000,000 Apple Music users.  That calms me down a bit.

“Live” has a 5 song EP out today called “Local 717”.  All of the original members back together, & it sounds much better, more like the album “Secret Samadhi”

 

CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL

I only own one greatest hits album of theirs on CD, which are now packed up in boxes.  If it’s an older band I’m good with only a greatest hits album.  I do own all of the “Led Zeppelin”, “The Beatles”, “Pink Floyd”, “Rush”, “The Beastie Boys”, and more.  Anyways here are a few songs….

Weekly exercise total; 400 pushups, 300 tricep pushups, 225 back flexes, 360 squats, 600 leg lifts, 300 crunches.

I fell asleep to “Tremonti” the album “A Dying Machine”

I exercised to “Foo Fighters” the album “Concrete & Gold”

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Justin Timberlake is singing the “La La La La” part

 

I feel really good after I finish my exercise each day.  Especially when I tally up the total for the week, always remember though that I have the time to do this amount of exercise & yes I built up to those numbers.  I didn’t just wake up one day & go “Let’s see if I can do 200 pushups today?”  I started doing 10 pushups on my knees.  That was very challenging for me at the time.

Went to a consult with a surgeon regarding a bulging disc in my back the same surgeon that did my 3 brain surgeries.  I gave him a big hug, he saved my life.  Anyways another MRI & we’ll talk to him once he had it & looked over it.

This is my job, get better, be more independent, etc.  Sitting around watching TV or listening to music is great but it gets EXTREMELY boring after a few days.

I always complete my exercise before posting any of this, there are a few days that I’ll have breakfast first.  Usually it’s exercise, post a blog, & eat.  There are days I will wake up quite hungry though.

 

The Soundgarden song “Jesus Christ Pose” was released as a single on October 3rd 1991.  From the album “Badmotorfinger”

 

Went to our friends’ place for supper & birthday cake our “niece” turned 5 years old on Wednesday.  Sweet, “Criminal Minds” made its season debut on Wednesday.  “Making a Murderer” is back on Netflix today.  Kim hasn’t watched any of it, I know what I’ll be doing today!

 

Stormy Daniels got to tour with Pantera?????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

http://loudwire.com/stormy-daniels-touring-with-pantera-vinnie-paul-death/

 

“The Unheavenly Creatures” by “Coheed & Cambria” is out today!  I’m a casual fan of this group.  I could see how his voice would prevent album streams & downloads though.

 

Kids react to “Disturbed”.  It’ll be OK kids, I stopped listening to them after their 2nd album.  I stopped listening to them in 2004 or earlier?

 

BECK

He’s from the 1990s.  He released 3 albums, then disappeared.  He has since resurfaced recently, with 2 new albums I believe.  I was never really a huge fan of his.  He did sort of tap into grunge fans with the BIG hit “Loser” from what I believe was his first album or at least his first BIG album.  I only have his first 2 albums.  The second one has 3 or 4 songs I really like.  I’ll give the hit from his first album & a few I like from his 2nd album “Odelay” that I like….

 

1994   MELLOW GOLD

I’m don’t know why but this video/song were around every corner when they were released?

 

1996   ODELAY

I fell asleep to “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “….like clockwork”.  Guess who played drums on this album?  The name rhymes with Rave Roll?

I exercised to “A. D.D.” the album “Core” then “Alice in Chains” their Greatest Hits” the songs before singer, Layne Staley, died from a heroin overdose.

I remember Chris Messer telling me that the band I was with in university, should play “Man in the Box” my voice hadn’t completely changed from being a bass singer in high school yet.  The song was pretty difficult for me.

I exercise daily because I have to if I want to walk again.  I miss it when I’m supposed to be relaxing.  The part I really like about it is my rotation of T-Shirts that fit has grown!  Seems as though each week I can add another shirt into the mix.  This week started off with the addition of 3 T-Shirts.  That’s my wardrobe, concert T-Shirts & mostly shorts.

I really don’t like the heat!  Our windows face south so it’s always warm in here.  Even if the blinds are closed, even in the winter, it can get up to 89F or 28C.  Far too warm for me!  In the summer I can turn on the air conditioner to keep it at 22C.  In the winter I’m hooped?  I don’t even turn on the heat.  I did last winter & it kicked in 3 times, the rest of the winter it was really “hot in herre” even when I left the door open.  The heat from the sun kept it at a more than balmy 89F, 31C.  If we were going out I’d keep my shorts & T-Shirt on & bring my jacket with me.  I don’t wear my winter jacket much, usually a bunny hug/hoodie.  If you’re from Saskatchewan you know what a bunny hug is, if you’re anywhere else & say that, people look at you like you’re absolutely crazy!  That or on occasion in other Canadian provinces someone will say “So, you’re from Saskatchewan I assume?”

Check out this acoustic show in Regina!

“Dear friends, as you know I play very few shows, in an attempt to remedy this I’m playing a show this weekend (Saturday) at the cathedral social hall (formerly the freehouse) with my homies Mitch Fraser and J.D. Lemire. Shows starts at 9 and there is no cover so if you’re feeling like an outing and some live local music come on by! We’ll be playing some of my own music and some acoustic renditions of room333 songs.”

 

 

Hahahahaha!  Donald Trump!  He won’t EVER live this down

“It’s on www.youtube.com but don’t you dare promote it!”  OK, I’m not a fan of “Korn” anyways.

IT SURE FEELS LIKE FRIDAY, YET IT’S NOT……………..OH DE PLUF!

 

I fell asleep to “Dream Theater” the self-titled album from 2013.  They have released 2 since then & a pile more before that.

 

I exercised to “Counting Crows” the album “Recovering the Satellites”

This is the album with “Mr. Jones”.  I bought these two & 3 other ones that did nothing for me, except the live album I own

I was feeling nostalgic the other day & played these 2 albums on my iPod

Pearl Jam’s “Backspacer” was released 7 years ago.  Most casual fans had mixed emotions, I’m a casual fan of Pearl Jam it was VERY radio friendly & VERY calm.  I like this album, they’ve released other albums that are very calm & don’t work for me.  I have all of their albums on CD, the most recent one from iTunes & I really like their music, I just forget there’s more than the album “V.S.” & “Yield”

 

Big Wreck shared it……

 

I missed a bit of this, interesting though.  Seems like documentary makers are trying to cash in on the Netflix series “Making a Murderer” might as well strike while it’s hot!

 

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.  I like superhero movies, but I can see that there are fewer options for those that don’t like them.

 

Kerry King of “Slayer” weighs in on ”Anthrax” collaboration with “Public Enemy”.  Personally I would like Kerry King to learn how to do a guitar solo in key?  I’ve never been able to play a lightning fast guitar solo & I’m not well versed on the key of a song, but I know when something is out of tune.

You knew something would occur after the documentary of “The Case of: JonBenet Ramsey”

“The Pretty Reckless” vs. “Highly Suspect” I’m good either way, both come out later this year & yes I have them preordered on iTunes
