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

I fell asleep to “Paramore” the album “RIOT”

I exercised to “Foo Fighters” 56 B – Sides on shuffle

 

Nope, no massive headache on Sunday & I’m not in the hospital unconscious.  I’m here!

No, I didn’t watch the Super Bowl.  13 – 3 for the Patriots!  Now that sounds like a great game to fall asleep to!  I don’t watch the NFL or the Super Bowl.  I don’t have a cable package to get the advertisements & I don’t think “Maroon 5” is a big enough name to entice a large TV rating.  They’re a big name, but not big enough.

I didn’t see the half time show but looking at the comments on it, I hear it wasn’t good in general.  At least they got to try.  I didn’t think “Bruno Mars” was a big enough name either at the time.  I heard very few negative comments in comparison to Maroon 5.  To compare & assess who had a better show is for those who judge talent shows, apples to oranges as they say.  I watched the half time show on www.youtube.com so I wouldn’t be talking about something I didn’t see.

I think people who attended or watched the game on TV shouldn’t throw out negative comments.  It’s basically a “free” music event.  Sure I assume a portion of the ticket price would be used to pay for part of the entertainment, but anyone with any interest in the half time show isn’t guaranteed a life changing experience from the musical entertainment.

Every musician isn’t perfect all of the time.  Everyone has a rough day once in a while?

At the end of the day, it happened & it’s over.  Time to quit complaining on social media about it.  You’re just wasting your time repeating your dislike that has been stated by 1,000,000s of other people.  No need to add to the negativity everywhere.

 

YAY! “Alter Bridge” start writing as a group in April!

Movie news regarding a few franchises!  Releases in the distant future.  DC, Fast & Furious.  I’m a big fan of the DC movies & yes I enjoy the Marvel movies.

I hear something one day & the next day it changes.  Last I heard about the DC comic movies, they’re hitting the reset button on almost everything.  Superman, Batman, & some of the “Suicide Squad” are being re-cast.  Margot Robbie is currently filming one of her standalone movies as Harley Quinn.

 

No new “Tool” this April.  Since the release of “10,000 Days” in 2006 & a follow up album that has yet to surface, I’ve had brain cancer & recovered.  “10,000 Days” is the length of time that Maynard’s mother had a stroke & died.

I don’t feel entitled to a new album.  I feel entitled to the truth.

 

RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS

I can’t tell you how many albums they have released, I’ll just say A LOT.  I believe they’re based in California.  We listened to the singer’s, Anthony Keidis, audiobook.  He was a heroin addict when they began their career & was nearly kicked out of the band since he missed rehearsals or was late & how up high.  I have 4 of their albums, 2 of which I like.  I believe I was in elementary school when I first heard them.  There was a guy a year ahead of me around the corner from my parents’ apartment, & he had the cassette of “Mother’s Milk” released in 1989.  I remember that I thought it was just weird/different & I didn’t care for it much.  I bought the CD of “Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magik” thinking it would be great since the 2 singles from it were.  Unfortunately those were the only songs I enjoyed on the album.  I bought the albums “Californication”, “By The Way”, & the double album “Stadium Arcadium”.  I liked “Californication” & “By The Way”, they’re on my iPod.  “Stadium Arcadium” I listened to once, & that was enough.  I was done following this band.  FANTASTIC musicians, just not my type of music.

I’m not a big fan of funk/rock to begin with.  I think they’re on their 4th guitarist?  I believe the first guitarist died, John Frusiante joined then quit, Dave Navarro joined, John Frusiante rejoined, he quit & now they’re with a new/4th guitarist.

 

1991   BLOOD, SUGAR, SEX, MAGIK

I bought this CD between 1998 – 2001?  I don’t listen to it at all now.

 

1999   CALIFORNICATION

I’ve played “Otherside” & “Around the World” live.

 

2002   BY THE WAY

 

2006   STADIUM ARCADIUM

Now I only listen to “Californication” & “By the Way” on the rare occasion.

Status update since I don’t really do that on face book. I woke up around 4am, couldn’t fall asleep, got up at roughly 4:45am had breakfast (2 glasses of fruit/veggie juice, watched some stuff I had recorded, exercised & now I’m here at 9:20am…………….and I’m really tired. I have increased my exercise somewhat minimum of 120 crunches, yesterday I hit 170, today 160. Two sets of 40 and a 3rd set of 40 or more. Along with pushups (40), yoga & planking. Other day’s are walking with my walker, practicing stairs, or riding an exercise bike for as long as I can if it’s not in use, which is pretty rare here.

Shelterbox. I think this is a fantastic organization!

I personally don’t use it in any form. Whether you like it or not, people do use it. Ask yourself this. Do you want people to hide it or go around care free? Do we want police officers who spend time on cracking down on marijuana users who get the munchies or breaking & entering? Just make it legal, we have bigger fish to fry.
