I got off of the computer quite early on Friday.  I was fevered & felt like a truck hit me.  Sore everywhere & 0 energy.  When I’m sick, which isn’t very often now, it always feels like a wasted day.

Saturday & I still feel terrible.  When I woke up I didn’t feel too bad.  Then I had breakfast, emptied the dishwasher, & made a juice.  I’m so hot now that I should shower again, & get a dry shirt on.

The plus side to Saturday is that I haven’t worked out since November, & I weigh but 235.  I think I was 233 about a year ago.  When/if I hit 215-220 that’s about right for me.  I’m not trying to lose weight, but I just feel better (other than now when I’m sick & feel like I’ve been hit by a truck)

“Saturday night, date night, Saturday night”

Us 2 plugged sickos rented “The Founder” from iTunes.  It was good, I’d recommend it, I don’t need to see it again though.

 

As for today, Sunday, I’m still fevered, not much has changed.  I’ve filled my pill capsules & now I will watch the Blue Jays lose………………….again.

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today.  Slow/Quiet week.  Stretching everyday & many routine appointments to come by the end of July.

 

Pretty big honour for a group with a small fan base!

My doctor called looks like I’ll more than likely have a back operation YAY!  He’s going to call the same surgeon that did my brain surgeries.  I’m not worried about the strong possibility of back surgery, I’m worried about the recovery time.  After the doctor called, Kim teared up, she doesn’t want me to have to deal with something major again.  So I told her “Don’t worry about stuff like this, we don’t know what’s going to happen in the next 10 seconds or what will happen in surgery or after, we’ll deal with whatever when it happens”.  I’m anxious for this back thing to be fixed once & for all, & get back to exercising.  This stretching stuff is getting old.

Kim’s parents came down from the Prince Albert area.  We had Easter with them & Sherry Friday night.  Saturday was my Dad’s birthday.  Kim had a bad chest cold that moved to her sinuses & just continued to get worse as the weekend progressed.  She stayed home Saturday to rest.  She was going to go shopping with her mom & sister & then come to my parents for supper.  She just really wasn’t up to doing anything.  My brother & his girlfriend drove me home, dad picked me up in the afternoon.

Kim ha Thursday & has Monday off.  I’ll see how she feels after supper & we may watch a movie if she’s up to it.

I fell asleep to “The Philosopher Kings” the album “Famous, Rich, & Beautiful” I got up to tinkle & listened to “Muse” the album “Black Holes & Revelations” as I fell asleep

I didn’t even think to turn on the “stereo” when I exercised.  Busy day today, not much time for the computron today.

Don’t feel as though you have to open every link.

I was watching the news a few nights ago & came to a solution regarding cell phones being used as weapons in terrorist attacks!  Get rid of them!  How did most people fly without a phone until everybody & their dog got one?  Wait………….next to nobody had a phone, laptop or tablet.

Remember before all of these gadgets were around?  What happened when one person didn’t share or play nice with a toy?  No one got to play with it.  Easy, out of sight, out of mind.  No more laptops, tablets, cell phones or any electronic devices allowed on the plane.  You forgot it was in your pocket?  Not my problem, it goes in this garbage bag now or you go back to where you came from with it……………………………….HAVE A NICE DAY!

Of course I hate the entire idea of cell phones which I’m sure is a common pet peeve many people would like to change.  If you’re going to a public venue, restaurant, theater, concert, loud bar, airplane, etc.  Whatever it may be, please show some common courtesy…..they annoy me to no end, I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one.  If you’re at a certain venue doing or enjoying a certain activity, why isn’t the person you’re chatting with, come & join you?  Other than that or an emergency, what do you need your phone for?

Someone should invent a harness to go around your chest like a tube top & have a cell phone holder attached to the front that extends 2 ½ feet from your chest.  Then your phone would always be available!

From a random www.google.com search

“According to data compiled by New York-based app Locket, the average user checks their phone around nine times an hour at peak times. On average, users unlock their phone 110 times a day and a quarter of people actively use their handsets during the hours of 3am and 5am”

I found one with a lesser count but it was from 2015?

Me:  “Who are you talking to?”

Phone User:  “Ronda”

Me: “I don’t know Ronda?”

PU: “She needs help with a recipe”

Me: “Ask Ronda to wait?  Neither of us invited her & the recipe won’t go anywhere, unless she moves it.”

Call it rude but it’s no ruder to me than someone spending their time & attention on someone not with us or is not the subject of anything to do with our conversation.

In the end, there is no book on how to use a mobile devices, so use it as you like.  Please don’t forget that in a public setting your use of a phone can affect other peoples’ experience.

 

Tool is on tour…………again, which means no in studio work for Tool at the moment or any work for Maynard in the studio with A Perfect Circle.  All I know is that Tool has one song done for sure!

I wish Regina offered the FX channel on cable.  I’d watch the TV series “Fargo” if I had the chance.  I loved the movie!

 

Are you easily offended?  If so, DO NOT WATCH Dave Chappelle’s standup comedy special on Netflix!  HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m sure I’ll get sick of this song soon enough.

 

Songs I just wanted to play, & a few more when I filled in for a friend.  Pretty much anything guitar & vocal wise I could do other than solos.

I fell asleep to “Diemonds” 2/3 albums I own on shuffle “The Bad Pack” & “Never Wanna Die” got up go to the washroom, came back & to “Megadeth” the album “Dystopia”

I exercised to “Blameshift” 2 Eps & a full length album on shuffle, washed dishes to “Ed Sheeran” all 3 albums on shuffle.

I’m dumb!  Largest understatement I’ve made in the last 10 minutes, I’ve been watching CNN.  It took stage 4 brain cancer for me to wake up & start taking care of myself.  The photo of 2 guitar players on stage is of my brother & I.  I’m the guy in a white T-Shirt.  That’s me at my heaviest 265lbs, no I don’t look that heavy, doesn’t mean it’s OK though.  I haven’t weighed myself lately.  I did about 6 months ago & I was 233.  I went into the hospital at 265 & ballooned to probably close to 300?  I’m lighter at 233 than I’ve ever been in my adult life.  The only problem is ALL off my weight went to my stomach.  I have T-Shirts that don’t fit over my stomach.  I may have to have a serious discussion with my stomach.  At least I’ve smartened up & eat healthier now, & 3 drinks are more than enough Friday or Saturday.  Before I was sick it was outrageous!  8 or 9 drinks minimum on Friday & repeat on Saturday.  I really don’t miss those days, I’m a morning person now.  I like to get up & get stuff done!  Then I’ll sit on my butt & relax, & if the Blue Jays are on TV, don’t even pretend that I hear you!  Hahahahahhahaha!

Friday evening we went out for supper with some friends from out of town.  Good times!!  We rarely go out for supper or leave the house for that matter.  I need to do something on a weekend or else I get cabin fever & a little cranky.  I don’t go out to a job 5 days a week.  I can’t drive, neither can my dog & we have 1 vehicle, since Kim is the only one here that can drive.  We had a busy week, that doesn’t happen very often.  We were both home Monday evening.  Kim was out Tuesday.  I had a physio appointment Wednesday evening.  I went to “Big Wreck” with 2 friends & my dad on Thursday, while Kim was out with some co-workers.  Then Friday was out for supper.  Most weeks I’m lucky to be out once!

Saturday was quite tame.  Kim & Sherry went grocery shopping as they do every weekend.  Afterwards Kim & I just powered through what was recorded on our DVR.  I finished the off the last episode of the first season of the Netflix series “The Santa Clarita Diet” while they went shopping.  I think I sat in my wheelchair too long Friday night?  It’s deflated again & I was on it for 3 hours.  My sciatic nerve is/was making things uncomfortable watching TV most of the day.

Sundays are the days we get ready for the week, Kim boils eggs & cooks my fish.  She also makes up a few lunches for herself to take to work.  I shell the boiled eggs & put them in the fridge.  During the week I have 1 boiled egg & a glass of vegetables & fruit blended every morning.  A piece of fish for lunch or a wrap with turkey deli meat.  Supper is the wild card usually squash with meat sauce or rice, quinoa & chicken for supper.

Last night I think all 3 of us expanded our vocabularies quite a bit.  I don’t remember being in so much pain because of my sciatic nerve, I was near tears & screaming just trying to get comfortable in bed.  I’m sure it’s from having a completely deflated seat in my wheelchair.  Just too long sitting on it at the restaurant Friday night.  Kim inflated it last night but the damage was already done.  I got up this morning, had breakfast, shelled the eggs, & did my stretches & I’m sure I’ll be doing more later on.

 

WOW!  My uncle sent me this.  This was his first time playing in front of an audience, at a French Just for Laughs!

 

I can’t get enough Alter Bridge!

http://loudwire.com/alter-bridge-nonpoint-heat-up-snowy-new-york-city/#photogallery-1=1

Not many people seem to know who “Alter Bridge” is & outside of Canada “Big Wreck” is very unknown.  In my perfect world I’d love to see these 2 groups open for “Foo Fighters”, but that’s just me?

This is one reason musicians drop out of music.

http://www.cbcmusic.ca/posts/18039/musician-injuries-health-awareness-music-schools

If they’re mainstream radio artists they have a few options, since they make pennies on digital music.  A) Release the album everywhere & hope it’s well received.  B) Start a fragrance, clothing or alcohol line & continue to release the music everywhere.  C) Don’t release the music, do it as a pastime & find a non-celebrity job.  D) Put the music out & charge as much or as little as you want.

Have you noticed that Prince’s music is hard to find a video on www.youtube.com with audio?  You can watch a video but with no sound or half of the song’s audio.  Most musicians are glorified T-Shirt sales person.  That’s what Lamb of God vocalist, Randy Blythe, calls himself in his memoir.

 

“Muse” is touring with “Thirty Seconds to Mars” beginning at the start of May.  “Muse” just completed a tour cycle a couple of weeks ago, so how are they spending their down time?  In the studio!!

 

It happens to most singers.  I’ve seen people who forget the lyrics & I’ve done it too!

http://loudwire.com/10-rockers-forgetting-lyrics-onstage/

Forgetting The National Anthem is where I draw the line.  Cover songs are easy to remember because it’s been on the radio 18,000 times & it’s usually one of the singer’s favourite songs.  If someone else in the band has written lyrics & I sang it, those were often hard to remember for me.  35 cover songs were pretty easy for me to remember in a cover band.

 

Highly Suspect’s Facebook status on Saturday

“I think you should watch the Grammys tomorrow. Rumor has it they are gonna put our ugly mugs on TV this time”

If he didn’t swear so much I’d share more songs with you.  2 albums & only 3 or 4 songs that are clean?  At this point it’s a gimmick.  Great band though.  They almost remind me of Nirvana.

Kim & I rented the movie “Trolls” Saturday night really good/funny/family oriented movie!  I couldn’t care less about the Oscar Awards nominated movies of the year.  To me they’re usually over rated fancy shmansy artsy fartsy movies I’ve never heard of, after the awards I may watch one or two of them.

I fell asleep to “Judah & the Lion” S/T album

I forgot to get the remote before I got on the floor.  Stretched & exercised in silence.  Big Wreck will be playing constantly for the rest of the day here.

Don’t feel as though you need to open every link.

Time to get back to some exercise.  My nerve doesn’t really cause me any pain any more.   It’s really only annoying & uncomfortable.  I did some exercising today, drastically lowered the sets though, & no squats until this thing is gone completely.  More stretching, with a dash of exercise.  Stretching & sitting around is REALLY boring!

 

The Watchmen, originally out of Winnipeg, will be releasing a live vinyl record.  No date or price announced yet though.

By 2011 I was flat out depressed.  I was crying 20 times a day, I wanted to kill myself since I didn’t think I had anything to offer.  We’d go home for supper & I would ask Kim for a knife.  I was in a rough spot at the time.  I was being selfish, not thinking about anybody else.  I didn’t even want to talk to my doctor about it or anyone for that matter.  Kim wrote him a note that I dictated to her.  I felt like a BIG letdown to everyone.  My doctor actually apologized to me saying “I should have seen this coming” I told him that I was trying to keep it quiet.  I had been down in the dumps before, but nowhere near that much. I was first scheduled to see a psychologist but she couldn’t be there, she had left on maternity leave.  Instead I spoke with a social worker for two weeks.  Then I saw a psychiatrist once a week & now I’m on happy pills!

Bell, a satellite, phone & internet company are currently running a campaign for people struggling with depression.  Someone would like to talk or listen to you.  That’s what brought this on. I’m good now of course.  I was unable to find the phone number, but you can reach them on social media or on their website.  http://letstalk.bell.ca/en/

I encourage any & all people that are dealing with any type of mental illness to talk to someone & not hide it from others.  The longer you bottle it up, the worse it can get.  Talk to a friend, family member, or a complete stranger.  Whoever, just get that weight off your back & feel that sense of relief.  You’re not alone, 1/5 people deal with a mental illness.  Lots of people know how to deal with it.  Heck if you’re reading this & want to talk to me, don’t be afraid, I can shut up & listen even though I may not have the answers for you.  Please talk to someone, it’s not as hard as you think.
