New & lighter wheelchair should be here tomorrow (Friday) or Tuesday at the latest.  Current chair weighs 40 pounds, new chair will be 12 pounds or 8 with the wheels popped off.

4 day weekly total; 400 pushups, 240 tricep pushups, 100 back flexes, 400 leg lifts, 200 crunches, 240 squats.

I fell asleep to “Tool” the album “Lateralus”

I exercised to “Doctor” the only album “High is as High Gets” no videos or songs on the internet or iTunes.  I bought the CD the day it came out, WAY back when!  It’s the group the singer of “The Watchmen” did after “The Watchmen” broke up.  It’s been out of print for years.

 

Managed to do my pushups with my arms in.  I did most of them properly as per this video.  I need to go lower & focus on my breathing.  No I’m not near even contemplating advanced pushups.  Keeping your elbows in makes it much more difficult.

Tuesday this week that I got up at 8:00 am, had breakfast, exercised, & then sat on the couch watching TV for far too long.  I didn’t shower until 12:30 pm or so.  I was “exhausted”!

 

I’ve googled & called Apple regarding this issue many times & I think I know what iTunes might be doing by the end of March?  You’ll have the normal streaming subscription fee.  You will still be able to stream music.  If you want to buy music, you’ll have that option as well, I think?  Any purchased music will cost a bit more since you’re also paying the streaming fee to use the store.  Kind of like Costco.  A fee to get in the store to purchase stuff from the store.

Neither streaming or purchasing will be eliminated, purchasing will cost more.  I don’t know if the price of a download will be cheaper?  This means hopefully the artists will get more money with a purchase?

Again, I’m not entirely clear on this, but that’s what I assume I read from the link I read.  CDs will disappear fast I believe.  This isn’t the exact link, but it did come from www.appleinsider.com.

I’m sure this has nothing to do with the music they listen to.  This is just lack of common sense by 2 parents!

How every cover song should be done!  Make it your own or do an exact cover.  I do prefer grabbing a song from a different genres & covering it.

Here’s the original.

 

Ah yah, Warner Brothers I’ve been waiting for something like this!

People are starting to not like “Opeth” because they’ve been making less death metal & more stuff like this.  I’m not one of those people, I may not listen to them often, that doesn’t mean anything though.

 

I’ve watched “Deadpool 2” 3 times since we bought it & saw it once in the theater!

EXTREME LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

FALL OUT BOY

I know nothing about the background regarding this band.  I have always considered them a guitar based pop band, never a rock band.  I believe the bass player writes most of the lyrics if not all of them.  The only thing I can tell you for certain is that the drummer & second guitar player are in another group with Scott Ian of “Anthrax”.  The band is called “The Damned Things” with 2 other musicians.

I missed the first release by Fall Out Boy, I don’t have much desire to get it either.  I don’t listen to Fall Out Boy very often, but I do like them.

 

2005 One album prior to this.  FROM UNDER THE CORK TREE

 

2007    INFINITY ON HIGH

 

2013    SAVE ROCK & ROLL

 

2015   AMERICAN BEAUTY/AMERICAN PSYCHO

 

2018     M A N I A

 

I did buy this single & attached it to one of the albums or I’d never listen to it.

I have issues with artists using samples of another artist’s song.  Fall Out Boy uses quite a bit of sampling in their music, I don’t understand why any musician does this.  To me it comes off as “Well this fits, so I guess we don’t need to record it?  ______ has done it for us, & it’s better than what I came up with?!”

I don’t have their first album & there’s another one in the middle I checked out & don’t need.

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 “Stone Temple Pilots” the album “Stone Temple Pilots (2018)”, followed by “Myles Kennedy” his solo album “Year of the Tiger”

Friday is release day, so I get my albums at midnight eastern time, one bonus to daylight savings time!

I exercised to “Pink” the album “Beautiful Trauma”

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Exercise weekly total; 1000 pushups, 700 leg lifts, 500 crunches, 300 tricep pushups, 300 squats, 200 back flexes.

I don’t think of myself as disabled.  Waking up in the middle of the night to pee has become a normal thing since I drink so much water every day. I wake up, I immediately get moving, I get in my wheelchair, roll to our en suite bathroom, get out of my wheelchair & sit down to pee.  No big deal.

I like to get up by 8:00 am at the latest & get my exercises done first thing in the morning.  For me I prefer quality over quantity.  Everything is pretty good for me right now.  I’ll be doing this total next week.  The week after, who knows?

Out of all of the exercises I do, back flexes & leg lifts are by far the most difficult.  Leg lift amount I don’t see moving anytime soon.  Things don’t increase to an astronomical amount ever.  If I think I should raise anything I usually add 5 to each set I do of that exercise.  If it’s still difficult, the number won’t move.  I can see both types of pushups going up slightly.  Hopefully the squats eventually also.

If I don’t do some type of exercise during a week day, it feels like a wasted day to me.  If I hit my goal for the total at the end of the week, I’m happy with that.  I know that eventually, I can do more!

 

I had 2 shares of the Wednesday post, HUGE difference!  Any help is greatly appreciated!  Spread the word please?

Yes, this is pre-written & now I have some stuff to do around the house.  I’ll be back but it might be a while?

 

RADIOHEAD

Radiohead made 1 OK album followed by 2 masterpiece albums, then noise from then on beginning with the album “Kid A” & have since continued to make very bleak albums with 0 sense of a time signature or melody.  The singer (Thom Yorke) has a fantastic voice but prefers to warble into the microphone now.  Each album is pretty much a guitar player strumming one string & playing with his effect pedals.  During the first 3 albums, they were on my bucket list to see live, but not anymore.  Foo Fighters were on tour with Radiohead & got to watch Radiohead create their masterpiece “OK Computer” the album Rolling Stone Magazine claimed to be the best album ever recorded.  It’s a great album, but that seems like an overstatement to me?  I’ve heard that Radiohead were never fans of their song “Creep”, the distorted guitar that comes in just before the chorus was the guitar player striking his guitar in rage, not sure if that’s true though?  Anyways here are 2 songs from the first 3 albums & one from a future album…………………….

Myself & my friend continued to load up my “Radiohead” CD collection, why I don’t know?

I haven’t watched the “Justice League” yet, I got it on blu-ray to watch it this weekend.  What I find odd is that this ruined the movie for them?  I guess people just really enjoy complaining.

Spring training for baseball is drawing to a close.  Regular season games start Thursday, March 29.  What would really impress me is if the Toronto Blue Jays could move Troy Tulowitzki & his remaining $60,000,000 contract ($20,000,000 a year)!!!  He’s great defensively but his offense is nowhere close to what it used to be.  There seems to be a back load of AAA players ready to take over his spot (short stop).  They’re cheaper, younger, good infielders, faster, & they can hit.  Tulowitzki won’t even play until the end of April.  Big contracts are hard to move, I get that.  What might be more realistic is give him $30,000,000 – $35,000,000 next year, buy out his contract & cut him loose.  He hasn’t touched a baseball field in a game since May or June of last year.  So the Jays are paying him $20,000,000 to be a “cheerleader”?

 

St. Patty’s day tomorrow.  Get your dark Guiness beer or other beer to colour green & say “Thank you” to the Irish!

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

MY REASON BEHIND THE AMOUNT OF EXERCISE & NO STRESS HERE EVER OTHER THAN THE DAYS THAT END IN Y.

If you’re reading this but haven’t subscribed, I would do so now. From here until mid-February there could be really random postings aka it might not be Sunday, Wednesday, & Friday as scheduled.

Whoever is reading, please pass it on?  Show your friends that stage 4 brain cancer isn’t always a death sentence.  Please feel free to share every single post.  My hope is to inspire others & show them that it is possible to survive.

I fell asleep to “Opeth” the album “Ghost Reveries”

I exercised to “Alter Bridge” the latest studio album “The Last Hero”

 

500 pushups, 500 leg lifts, 245 triceps pushups.  I’ve upped the triceps pushups to 45 a day.  I have accidentally done 110- 115 regular pushups a few times, but I won’t add any until it becomes a regularity in my routine.  I might switch it up & throw in some back flexes on the odd day?  When I do my pushups, I don’t do a specific amount of sets, I go full on & do as many as I can (minimum 25) until I can’t do anymore.  I rest, then do the same thing, I repeat that until I hit 100 or more.  It ends up usually around 3 sets.  I’m pretty sure I could do more pushups, if I took more rest periods, maybe I’ll try 130 next week?  Once that’s done, I shower, eat breakfast, then I tend to other stuff that needs to be done here.

At the moment still, I cannot do any squats or more crunches due to my pending back surgery.  I had a disc slip out of place and I’ve had that off & on experience since grade 10.  I twisted the wrong way to borrow a pen, I went home for lunch, bent over to pick up a piece of paper off of my bedroom floor & BOOM I spent the rest of the day on my parents’ kitchen floor.  It has come & gone over the years.

Why was I doing 1,500 crunches a day?  Kevin Hart was on The Ellen Degeneres Show & said he does 1,000 crunches & 500 pushups a day.  I’ve got the time to exercise like crazy & there is/was nothing preventing me from achieving the same thing.  Well I proved that I could reach/exceed the number of crunches & I would like to achieve the number of pushups.  I’ll get to that total but it will take time & persistence.  I didn’t wake up one day and do 1,500 crunches, I built up to that number.  I don’t need anyone to tell me I can’t do something, I want to get better, I don’t want to sit here & feel sorry for myself.

Sure my life is different than most people, but what is “normal”?  Other than a B-Side by Foo Fighters, I couldn’t tell you?  Is your family or household the same as everyone else?  I doubt it, & it shouldn’t be.  Whatever you think is your “freak flag” let it fly.  Show it off & people that care about you will still be there for you.

WOW did that feel like a Yoda moment for anyone else?  Where did that come from?

Lastly, it’s the holiday season.  I’m tired & stressed a little more each day, & I have zero reason for it?  That’s weird & it affects my sleep.  If I can figure out what it is, I’ll be sure to let you know.

Everything is politically charged.  I’ve had more than enough of it & I’m not on twitter nor do I own a cell phone.  Why?  Information overload!  Nobody will talk to someone.  “But I missed the emoji, ah my life is over” if you say so?

Is Trump good for the entertainment industry?  No, because he’s everywhere & everyone has heard the same thing about him at least 50 times a day already!  Movies, late night talk shows, sports, music, etc.  I’d love to put something else on here but he is the definition of a “media whore”.  If it’s not a picture of him beside the definition on www.wikipedia.com wait until they update the website.

 

Hahahaha!  James Corden & Kristen Wiig sing the song “Hallelujah”

http://www.rollingstone.com/tv/news/see-kristen-wiig-beautifully-butcher-hallelujah-on-corden-w513555

 

Were they all good albums that 1000s of people know & bought?  I can fart into a microphone so it records, if I sell 1 copy, I’d feel sad for that individual & return their $4.  Quality, not quantity!

 

The thing I want to know is.  Why is it that a guitarist playing a solo on the higher end of the guitar, have to make a weird face as though they’re pinching off a loaf?  Is every solo that difficult or are they making it look hard?

What I personally know is A) I sang & played rhythm guitar, I played a very easy solo when I was asked, I also changed one of my guitar parts when asked.  B) How on earth do you play or sing after consuming alcohol?  I never ever did any type of drug or smoked cigarettes.  Before I was done on stage, I avoided alcohol.  I wasn’t a great singer so there was no reason to make it more difficult.  After we played maybe a beer.  I’d go home, unload my gear, and then relax with a beverage or 3.  People actually paid to hear us play our songs, I’d better make the evening enjoyable, & have a good night.  Any type of entertainer should care about what they’re doing!

I remember our 2nd drummer, who had recorded & played with/for professional musicians saying that the vocalist typically gets 50% of the money.  I thought that was odd & immediately said “We split it evenly, 25% each since there’s 4 of us & I’m the hack”!

I guess the Rogers Company still owns the Blue Jays but they are for sale.  A sale of this magnitude will take some time though if it happens.  Starting Pitcher Aaron Sanchez, who went on the disabled list 4 times last year due to a blister forming on his pitching hand, will resume throwing tomorrow.  Has the league changed the baseball?  There were many pitchers across the league that dealt with the same problem.  The players could tell the ball was wound tighter & the seams were lower.  All of this means that if a pitcher wanted to make the ball move, he would have to use more pressure on the ball with his fingers.  If the ball hasn’t changed, I doubt anything from a players stand point or injury will change.  More millionaires sitting around because they have a boo boo on their finger.

Next week all of the MLB general managers begin their Winter Meeting.  They go to Florida & talk about trades or free agent signings & see what they can possibly achieve or what can happen ASAP.  I’m sure there will be many rumours & moves made around Wednesday or so.

….and the results show he is unfit to serve as President, I hope & nothing serious since he’ll eventually live in a jail cell.

Kim told me last night that she had today off, so I didn’t work out today.

I fell asleep to “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “Villains” followed by “Foo Fighters” the album “Concrete & Gold”

This song^^ is just completely sugar coated in reverb on the album.

400 crunches, 400 leg lifts, 160 back flexes, 20 minutes of planking, & 400 pushups.  Each morning starts with filling Brewster’s dishes.  100 crunches, 100 leg lifts, 40 back flexes, 5 minutes of planking (rest periods not included), & 100 pushups.  Then I lay on the floor, roll over in complete exhaustion, trying to catch my breath & carry on with my day.

Some people think I sit around all day laying on the couch watching TV, Movies, or listening to music.  If I’m lucky, that happens about twice a month, after my exercises or on the odd occasion that I don’t sleep well.

Unless I’m sick, there is always exercise going on & something to get to, that I normally wouldn’t have time to get to.  Remember, it’s not just me that has to be happy, it’s Kim’s place too.  Yes, Brewster is happy too.  Rough life for a dog.

On Wednesday, I spent far too much time working on the problem with my iPod.  All of my art work disappeared.  I still have an iPod Classic 160 gigabytes I got while in my rehabilitation in early 2012.

I do what I can.  Some cleaning, started cooking (on the stove top), I always handle the dishes, etc.  For some reason we went with a fancy stove that has buttons instead of dials.  I get very confused with which burner I’m turning on, or if I’m turning on the oven?

I fell asleep to “Nothing but Thieves” their self-titled debut album.  Their 2nd album “Broken Machine” is out in September!

I exercised to “Alice in Chains” the album “Facelift”.  Alice in Chains were labeled as a metal group that gained success with the grunge movement.  If the media labeled them as metal, Soundgarden could easily been thrown into that mix.

Sunday ended with us having supper in Corey & Jolene’s back yard.  We were guinea pigs for the new smoker, we’re alive, the meat was tasty & safe!

I really had to check my pride at the door at WRC.  I’d have a bath once a week, every patient had a schedule for a bath once a week.  Complete strangers saw me naked, covered me up once I was on the gurney, take me to the bath, lower me into the bath & wash me or more often Kim would wash me.  It was awkward at first for me but I got over that pretty fast.

When I started this blog & acted like Trump or worse I thought I truly deserved something fantastic.  I beat a life threatening disease, & everyone was calling me a “Hero”.  I bought in to everybody’s hype & forgot how to remain humble.  What should I have done instead?  Remain humble, not let the hype get to me, & just be thankful to be alive, which is good enough for me!  Unfortunately I realized that later than I should have.  When I mess something up, I truly am my own worst enemy.

What made me think of entitlement?  There was a guy who was doing physiotherapy at the same time as I was with my occupational therapist.  He flipped out on the physiotherapist, started swearing at her, pointed to me and yelled “I WANT TO BE DOING WHAT HE’S DOING!” The next day when I had physiotherapy I apologized to my physiotherapist, telling her “Sorry you had to deal with that garbage yesterday”.  She replied “It comes with the territory”.  I told her “It shouldn’t though”.

I’ll admit that I had a rough day also.  I didn’t yell or swear at anyone.  I just said “No, not today!  I’m tired & I don’t feel like doing anything!”  I went for a short walk with my walker, Kim, & my physiotherapist.  I apologized the next day for my behavior.  My therapist said “That’s OK.  Everyone has a rough day once in a while”.  However you want to look at it, it’s not right!  What I should have said initially is “Sorry, I’m tired & I need a day off from therapy today.  Is it OK if I take today off?”

Guess who was sitting next to me in our (mom, dad, & I) Saskatchewan Roughrider season ticket seats?  The guy who flipped out that one day in therapy.  I don’t like what he did but, forgive & forget I guess, it’s done now.

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today. 

 

The countdown for the new Royal Blood album is out Thursday @ midnight eastern time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2 days

 

They’re both very HEAVY metal musicians, if this happens it could go either way for me.

So it’s Monday in the late morning & I just found out The Watchmen are co-headlining the Queen City Exhibition!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  WOOT WOOT

 

Finally “Despicable Me 3” in theaters June 30th.  I’ve been waiting for the release date to be announced!

 

I was emptying the dishwasher after my exercise & breakfast.  Then realized it has been a while since I’ve listened to this album……………..

 

So many people like to go on youtube or any type of social media & just drop a HUGE pile of crap on how much they dislike a movie, album, song, etc.  I’m guilty of doing that also.  OK, could you have done anything even remotely close to that?  Maybe, maybe not?  Until you can & have you might as well keep quiet.  When you do will your feelings be hurt if 2 out of 3 people just demolish your “art” on social media?  If you don’t like it, why are you even involved with anything to do with it?  Leave it alone & walk away or voice your opinion your own www.youtube.com channel dedicated to finding flaws in everything!  Most of us are old enough to make up our own mind!

 

I record & watch Jimmy Fallon & Conan the day after the late night showing.  I’m currently watching Jimmy Fallon.  Everybody rush out & get some “Tonight Dough” Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, 100% of the proceeds go to child charity.  You can eat ice cream while helping out & say “I had to do it for the kids!”  Just like miracle treat day at Dairy Queen!

Oddly enough, I was listening to this “Fleetwood Mac” album on Monday!

 

I think “Queens of the Stone Age” will be releasing their album soon?  Their Facebook page is active lately?  It will be their follow up to “…Like Clockwork” & 7th studio album!

 

Ozzfest meets Knotfest.  Probably too much metal for me?

http://loudwire.com/ozzfest-meets-knotfest-return-2017/

I have no problem with Ozzy Osbourne, Slipknot are OK I just prefer Slipknot Light, Stone Sour!

 

Just to cool not to share!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

The majority of metal fans are great people, just like every other community.  There’s a bad apple in every community.  Metal fans tend to get a “bad reputation.”

It’s gay pride week so if you’re an #LGBTQ member in or out of the closet, I fully support you as long as you’re a kind person.  If someone picks on you or makes fun of you because of your sexuality, I hope you have the strength to brush it off.  There are many idiots out there, but there’s also many people like me who fully support you!  Please don’t live a lie about your sexuality “Be Yourself” & own it.
