I fell asleep to “Myles Kennedy” his solo album “Year of the Tiger”

I exercised to “A Perfect Circle” the new album “Eat the Elephant”

Breakfast I listened to “The Pretty Reckless” the album “Who You Selling For?”

Weekly exercise total; 1200 pushup, 800 leg lifts, 500 crunches, 400 squats, 300 tricep pushups, & 200 back flexes.

WOW I need to shower.  This is what happens when you get your butt out of the comfy bed & just get moving.  I’m really trying to cut down on my rest time between sets.

I added quite a bit of sets/numbers per set.  Almost more than I can handle, but I did them!  240 pushups a day, 160 leg lifts a day, & 80 squats a day & the regular amount of other stuff.  I get so tired after though.  I hope that means I’m doing something right!

I get it if you can’t do that other stuff is & should be prioritized to suit your life.  I don’t have a paid job or kids.  Right there my life is different.  Before all of this cancer nonsense hit me, I never bothered to exercise.  Now I like it & it’s very necessary that I do it.

I was lazy on Monday & Tuesday, I slept in until 9:00 am both days.  I much prefer getting up at 7:30 am or at least by 8:30 am & getting all of it out of the way.  Kim always wakes me up, I have a tendency lately to roll over & stay in the comfy bed.

This extra exercise takes me longer than what I was doing.  Now it’s a solid 2.5 hours or 3 hours.  I know it will get easier, but right now I think to myself “WHAT WERE YOU THINKING YOU IDIOT?????????????????”

 

BARSTOOL PROPHETS

This album is on iTunes if you’re interested.  It was released in 1995 & I somehow got it, likely on Columbia House or BMG.  There is a 2nd album called “Last of the Big Game Hunters”, I can’t find it anywhere now.  I really wanted to go to the show when they were touring for the 2nd album, but it was in a bar & I was underage.  The album I have is titled “Crank”.  I think most of the songs from the 2nd album are on www.youtube.com.  I saw a few there but didn’t really search them all out.  These guys are from Ontario, Canada.  I don’t know much about them but I really like this album………

THIS IS THE SONG THAT HOOKED ME!!!  The video for this song was on Much Music a bit.  Creepy lyrics but I assure you Kim’s OK.

There are quite a few songs from their 2nd album “Last of the Big Game Hunters” on www.youtube.com.  We’ll discover this album together!

I may have to look this up on www.amazon.ca  $58 for a new copy?!?!!?!!  Nope!  Maybe a used copy for $16?

I can’t wait for this album!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Concept albums must be tricky to write.  One subject throughout the entire album can get boring like the “Muse” album “Drones” which has all but lost my attention.  “Our Lady Peace” made a concept album “Spiritual Machines”.  I didn’t read the book in question, they made the album interesting enough for me to listen to it, & I was much younger.

So MLB decided to not show the Blue Jay game on Wednesday, a Facebook only game, WHY?  Doesn’t the MLB or Rogers Communications want our money?  There are no more sellouts at the Rogers Center (Sky Dome), at the moment 20,000 tickets per game seems to be the norm now, last year it would usually be near a sellout 42,000 – 45,000 was almost a guarantee for every game.  Put the game on everything, not just the radio show & Facebook, I don’t even have Serious XM to listen to radio, or radio of any kind.  Worst part is the highlights made it look like the Jays put on a home run show scoring 15 runs on Wednesday to sweep the 3 game series.

Rookie Teoscar Hernandez was called up from the AAA team last week.  On Wednesday he hit a 2 run home run & a 2 run triple.  Please don’t do this again MLB?  I’m not about to watch a game on Facebook!  Not EVERYONE is on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat or whatever else there is.  I’m on Facebook & mostly email.  All of this social media (Facebook anyways) needs the user to have an email account.  Maybe put it on the Jays website?  I didn’t even know I could watch it on Facebook until the game was over.  Maybe the analysts should have mentioned that the day before?

I love the new Pentatonix album!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

I fell asleep to “The Beatles” the album “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” followed by “Metallica” the album “Hardwired………..to Self-Destruct”

 

Friday ended with me drinking alone & watching the Toronto Blue Jays vs. the Cleveland Indians.  Both had the same win-loss record starting the game which the Blue Jays won 8-4.  The Jays are now 9W-5L.

Saturday we woke up before 8:00 am.  I rolled over & asked Kim what time it was, too early.  Grabbed my iPod Classic, which I’ve almost decided will not be replaced when it dies, then we went back to sleep & I put my iPod back on.  Saturday evening was my dad & brother’s birthday supper at my parent’s place.  Supper, brownies for Mitch, & a Chocolate Extreme Blizzard cake from Dairy Queen for dad.  Good times that went a bit longer than expected.  By 10:00 pm we were all a bit tired & cleared out fast.

The Blue Jay game Saturday in Cleveland was rained out.  Today’s is supposed to be rained out as well.  3 players are currently injured so collectively that’s $54,000,000 worth of players sitting on the bench & the short stop might have a career ending injury.  His contract runs out at the end of the 2020 season.  Teams have insurance incase this type of thing happens.

Typical Sunday for us, getting ready for the week ahead, laundry, groceries, make a vegetable juice, bake some fish, hard boil some eggs, etc.  I’ve got the “American Country Music Awards” recording for Kim.  How on earth did I get stuck with a country music fan?  Country & music don’t even belong in the same sentence most of the time.  Oh wait she HAWT, smart, funny, she loves me, etc.  I do like the Dixie Chicks though.

I don’t play my music when she’s home & she usually does the same.  I find it funny that country “music” has to have it’s own award show, because it doesn’t fit in with the cool kids.  Hahahahahaha!

 

Before I get into this I should say that “Live’s” albums “Throwing Copper” & “The Distance to Here” are legendary albums for me.

The first band I was in while in University played most of “Lightning Crashes” once in rehearsal, but none of us knew the bridge of the song.  We stopped at the bridge & just never bothered to learn it or play it again, we should have.

 

2002

QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE & FOO FIGHTERS

I got into “Queens of the Stone Age” when they released their 3rd album “Songs for the Deaf” in 2002 with Dave Grohl on drums for all of the songs & a short tour afterwards.  I was already into Foo Fighters, so to see Dave on drums in a “Queens” video was big for me.  I bought the album ASAP.  I listened to it a LOT & soon bought the previous 2 albums, I was hooked.  I was in SIAST but the “Queens” stuff was in a low tuning.  I learned some of it, but it was just a hassle to switch tunings on my guitar for “Queens” stuff & regular tuning for rehearsal.  Foo Fighters released their 4th album on Kim’s birthday that year in October.  Not their best album but also not their worst, but I’m biased when it comes to Foo Fighters……….

Dave Grohl played drums on this album & Elton John played piano on at least a few songs!

 

 

Godsmack is still around?  I didn’t even know?  I was never a fan though anyways.

Top 10 Tool songs according to Watchmojo.com.  I wouldn’t put them in any category, especially metal.

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!         Any Tool fan that enjoys marijuana, doesn’t need to bring any to a Tool show, the rest of the audience will get you high on second hand smoke & the crowd also doubles as a fog machine for the band.

 

I think this guy is over a decade younger than me.  Although he says this ranking of “Muse” albums are just his opinion.

For me it would be “Showbiz”, “The Resistance”, “Drones”, “The 2nd Law”, “Origin of Symmetry”, “Absolution”, & finally “Black Holes & Revelations”.  I guess our opinions aren’t that far off after all.

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

I fell asleep to “Muse” the album “Black Holes & Revelations”

Friday I was busy doing not much that I remember?  We watched TV until we called it a day & went to bed.

Kim was getting a pedicure with some friends.  Timothy Wong was in town & came over to visit around 11:00 am for a bit.  Nice visit with him, I miss that guy, we’ve been very good friends since “grade 9”.

We went to my parents’ place for supper & a game of “Yahtzee” with my cousin, her boyfriend, & Rachel (Mitch’s girlfriend).  I don’t think I’ve seen my parents since my birthday at the end of January.  Mitch was at home doing some mixing or recording some music.  He’s pretty busy with that at the moment.  He’s the really smart one with that.  He took 3 cassettes from me & converted them to iTunes files, well 2/3 worked.

Today is our day of getting ready for the week ahead & watching the over rated Oscars.  It’s usually a bunch of artsy fartsy movies that win, I much more into the R rated comedies that are never nominated.

 

Tim & I were chatting about the push for a 20 class reunion.  There are people who want to have one & some are willing to organize or at least help organize it.  I’ve pretty much decided that I’m not a proponent of a 20 year reunion.  Tim organized the 10 year reunion which I decided I wasn’t going to it but I had a good excuse.  I had brain cancer.  Worst excuse EVER!  If I get brain cancer again this year & there’s a reunion, then we know what caused my brain cancer in 2008.  Hahahahahahahahaha!

 

 

BARENAKED LADIES

My uncle Kent lent the little yellow cassette to us.  He was in Ontario & Barenaked Ladies were selling the cassette out of the back of their vehicle after a show.  I listened to it on a Walkman!  Barenaked Ladies were my first concert in 1992.  I was 12 & my brother was 5.  Our immediate family went, all 4 of us.  A band from Regina, Saskatchewan opened the show, The Waltons.  Barenaked Ladies raved about how delicious Houston Pizza was during the show.  Their first full length album “Gordon” was released that year, & I loved it & still do.  I haven’t missed a Barenaked Ladies show in Regina since.  Just saw them in November, on tour for their album “Fake Nudes”!

Here’s more recent stuff!

Nothing like having the drummer sing a guitar solo!

 

New Tremonti album to be released in June!!!!!

 

Are they paying royalties to “Thin Lizzy”?

http://loudwire.com/are-metallica-working-on-new-branded-whiskey/

 

Drummer, Lars Ulrich of Metallica, has stated that there will be no reissue or remix of the album “…And Justice for All”, you know what that means?  Wait & within 5 years there will be a “…And Justice for All” remastered version out!

I’m starting to enjoy some Metallica honestly, but Lars has contradicted almost everything he’s said publically, sometimes even the next day”

I fell asleep to “Nothing but Thieves” the album “Broken Machine”

I exercised to “Paramore” all 5 albums on shuffle

These are posted after I exercise, & I’m doing more exercise until I get to a spot I’m happy with.  Nothing will be increased next week.

Exercise total for the week is 1000 pushups, 700 leg lifts, 500 crunches, 300 tricep pushups, 300 squats, & 200 back flexes.

5 days a week for me start with my exercise.  60 squats, 60 tricep pushups, 40 back flexes, 100 pushups, 100 leg lifts, 100 pushups, & 100 crunches.  Cardio in the evening 3 times a week or 1 of those times on the weekend, with Kim’s assistance.

Once I’m done my exercises, I check my Facebook & email.  Have breakfast & hit the shower.  Lately it’s been lunch time by the time or later once I finish everything.  I don’t sleep in since I like to get up & get stuff over with so I can do stuff around here if it needs to be done.  My days are pretty busy here.  That’s why Sundays are busy with us getting ready for the week.  Getting meals ready & such.

 

WOW!!!!  Look at Stone Temple Pilots go!

 

6 of these I’m anticipating, 3 of them have release dates & I’ve preordered on iTunes.  If Tool actually releases an album I’ll believe it when I have it.  Tremonti is very close to being done the recording process for his 4th solo album “A Dying Machine”

http://loudwire.com/2018-anticipated-hard-rock-metal-albums/

Muse has said they would like to release an album this year.  So far they’ve released 2 standalone singles.


This is really cool!

 

Look at that!  No Canadian dates at all!

I don’t listen to Marilyn Manson.  I also don’t protest against him or his shows.  He doesn’t affect me, so why would I bad mouth him?  Same idea about other things.  GMOs, gay marriage, thrill seekers, marijuana, religion, etc.  None of this bothers me at the moment.  If food starts to taste different then I’ll complain about the lack of GMOs.  Until then, I really have nothing to complain about.  I’m Canadian, so I don’t necessarily have to deal with Trump, nor am I on Twitter.

This Blue Jays season is not looking good.  I hope they have a lot of players to back up injured players?  It’s only spring training & 2 regular players are injured.  The $20,000,000 Short-Stop is recovering from a bone spur that came about after he demolished his ankle midway through last season, & hasn’t played a game since then.  Now the, arguably, best pitcher on the team has an inflamed shoulder.  Good grief!

Now they’re thinking of Biagini as a starter?  They didn’t learn anything from his 3W-11L record as a starter last year?

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

I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the album “Concrete & Gold, followed by “Trivium” the album “The Sin & the Sentence”

Friday carried on with me watching the Blue Jays first pre-season game & some of the kids, I think, have a chance of making the 25 man roster.  All of that said, it was one game.  I watched the game & Prime Time Sports with Bob McCown.  I only watch the first hour on Fridays to hear the call in hour for other people’s opinion on whatever they want to talk about, or anytime of the week when he announces what the topics will be & who he’ll be talking to.  Kim came home & as usual we watched “The Ellen Degeneres Show” then the Olympics until we went to bed at 10:30 or so.

I missed 3 of my favourite “Winter Olympics” events.  Ski jump, Speed Skating, & Hockey.

Kim got up early Saturday to go out for coffee with Jolene.  Then off to see a medium.  After going to see a Medium she was home at 5:30 pm.  We hung out on the couch, had supper, & watched some of “Friends” on Netflix after “The Legend of 420”.

I don’t use it, but you go ahead.  It is said that it can help cancer patients.  It was never recommended to me, although I know it can be useful.  I personally choose not to use it.

Kim went out this morning for groceries.  I cooked fish yesterday for my lunches during the week.  Made a veggie juice for the week.  We visited my Grandparents for a bit.  My cousin, her husband, & their toddler were there also.

We’ll be hard boiling some eggs & doing laundry.  Just our usual Sunday, getting ready for the week ahead.

 

 

Prince was the first musical act I was into, but Michael Jackson was never out of sight.  I saw the video for “Thriller” & was pretty much hooked on him for a long time.  When the album “Dangerous” was released & the video for “Black or White” was released, it was an event in my parents’ house.  Of course there are songs I’m not a huge fan of, but most of his stuff I’ve always enjoyed.

All I own for Michael Jackson is the albums “Dangerous” & 2 “Greatest Hits” albums.  I made an album of 30 songs on iTunes that I’ll listen to all the way through.  “All killer, no filler” – Sum 41.  That album was mostly filler for me.

 

In Flames, Opeth, & Dream Theater seem to be under constant fire for not being as “heavy” as they once were.  Unless you’re a flat out metal fan, heavy isn’t always necessary

I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the album “Concrete & Gold”, followed by the band “James” their “Greatest Hits” or the album “Laid” if you recognize it, it’s from the soundtrack of one of the “American Pie” movies.  Search for “James the band” if you like this

I exercised to “Matthew Good Band” the album “Underdogs”

When I went into the Wascana Rehabilitation Center I was on the 2nd floor initially.  Sometime in 2010 I was asked by a social worker if I’d switch rooms & go to the main floor.  The room I was in on the 2nd floor had oxygen for people that needed it.  I didn’t so I said “Yeah, no problem.”  The social worker was so relieved.  She was turned down by multiple people that refused to switch rooms.  I thought that was EXTREMELY odd?  People said “no” to changing rooms?  Same care on the first floor, really not a big deal at all.

I was genuinely shocked that anyone wouldn’t give up their room for someone else that needs it?  That’s still a vivid memory to me.

If you’re not using the oxygen that someone else needs, why not make things easier for another patient?  I think it may have more to do with people fearing change?  Most people avoid change & tend to think something different won’t be as good.

Even to this day I have to adapt to regular things.  The biggest question for me is if I can get into a place & if I can get to the washroom on my own.  Maybe I can, maybe I’ll need help until I figure it out, or maybe I can’t do it alone?

My parents’ washroom in the basement was tricky, I could do it, but it was tricky to do it.  They put in some grab bars for me & now it’s super easy for me!

Florida shootings.  I hope this will wake gun owners up!

http://loudwire.com/all-that-remains-phil-labonte-frustrating-gun-debate-passing-law-to-pass-law-isnt-good-idea/

I agree “thoughts & prayers” are doing anything.  Why is it that so many people are OK with reacting to a shooting & not being proactive to avoid the shooting?  Are we going to wait for the kids to grow up, or the current adults with guns to grow up?

I hate the fact that I see all of these mass shootings on TV & I feel numb “Oh, it will happen again next week” & unfortunately that’s what usually happens.  I think when anyone says “Ah, it’s a mental health problem.  Don’t blame the guns.”  WHY?   What if it involved a member of your family?  “My family is fine, we all have a gun for protection”.  Yeah, so far that’s working great for others, especially when a gun owner snaps & goes on a killing spree.

Maynard’s going to be very busy, singing for 3 bands.

You can’t really blame the singer for his voice sounding so much like Robert Plant.  The bassist & drummer aren’t at the Led Zeppelin plateau & the guitarist is guilty for the tone of his guitar & Zeppelin sound alike riffs.  I wouldn’t complain about a band having a similar sound as Led Zeppelin?

I’d rather see a human on stage showing their craft, but maybe that’s just me.  This stuff seems more like a gimmick to me.

I’m not sure how to feel about this?  “The Birds of Prey” album by “Live” was very questionable at best.  I guess we’ll see if there’s any gas in the tank?

I fell asleep to “Finger Eleven” the album “Greyest of Blue Skies”

I exercised to “Big Wreck” the album “In Loving Memory Of…”

I don’t believe in making a New Year resolution.  I have goals I want to achieve or surpass, exercise wise.  I’ve been back to my regular routine with squats added into the mix.  I wanted to add cardio, so I think I know what I’ll do about that now.  Exercise bike once a week in the evening or Saturdays & walking with my walker & Kim’s help 3 nights a week as soon as she gets home or just after supper.  My crunches & back flexes have also joined the mix.

4 day week remember.  Each day is 45 Triceps pushups, 40 squats (recommended by my younger cousin Megan Gagnon), 40 back flexes, 100 crunches, 100 leg lifts, & 120 pushups.  For the week that’s  180 Triceps pushups, 160 squats, 160 back flexes, 400 crunches, 400 leg lifts, & 480 pushups.  Next week will be a full 5 days.

All of this exercise is great but I hope to add some cardio on Saturdays.  Walking with my walker mostly & some exercise bike thrown in on occasion.  I’ve only heard whispers of other people enjoying cardio, I’m SO NOT one of them.  Kim enjoys it though.  When she’s out jogging or boxing at the gym, I get the remote & there shall be no TLC on the TV!

After all of that exercise during the week, I get really tired.  In order to walk with my walker & Kim’s assistance, I’d prefer to do so properly, when I’m not tired, like right before supper or ride the exercise bike on Saturdays.

 

 

Really?  “Muse” are back in the studio.  They did say they wanted to release a new album this year.

Devin Townsend Project

I had a lot of iTunes cash for Christmas.  James had the latest CD “Transcendence” which I borrowed & put on my iTunes.  Then I bought 2 other albums from iTunes “Addicted” & “Epicloud” all FANTASTIC albums added to other albums I own of his.  I was planning on buying “Transcendence” anyways.  I borrowed the CD from James & couldn’t stop listening to it, so I bought the other 2 albums from iTunes.  I wasn’t a huge fan of his until I heard “Transcendence” the double album version, & the latest release from them, right now, that’s my jam.

I couldn’t get into his former group “Strapping Young Lad” though.  They’re a little too heavy for me.

“Devin Townsend Project” I REALLY enjoy though.  Here are a few tracks from “Transcendence” that I can’t get enough of!

 

He’s Canadian & he did produced the “Lamb of God” album “As the Palaces Burn”

He finished recording it & then said “I can’t mix this????????????????”

Two things that would blow my mind this year is a new Lamb of God album & if Trivium would come to Saskatoon this year!
