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.

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.

I fell asleep to “Ed Sheeran” the album “Divide”

I exercised to “Metallica” the new album “Hardwired……………….to Self-Destruct”

 

400 leg lifts, 160 pushups, planking, yoga, 200 crunches & 80 back flexes this past week.

That’s 100 leg lifts, 40 pushups, 20 back flexes, planking, 100 crunches & yoga 5 days a week.  First thing I do when I leave the bedroom, then breakfast & a shower.

I just added the crunches on Thursday, 100 crunches a day.  The crunches had nothing to do with my back!  I know what caused it, I’ve had back issues since high school.  My wheelchair seat was over inflated & the squats always hurt my back a bit.  So I’m going to continue doing 100 crunches a day.  I could also just twist in my seat to borrow a pen & my back would go out?  That’s what happened in grade 10?

Kim had Wednesday off, so I took it off too.  I got in the shower while she went out to get coffees & cinnamon buns.  We sat on the balcony before it got too warm.  I can’t get out there in my wheelchair.  Kim has to help me, or I can crawl out if needed.  Came inside watched a bit of TV.  Kim went for a roller blade.  She showered, we watched a little more TV, and then we went to see “Wonder Woman” in the comfy recliners at the Southland Mall.  I don’t know where it came from but we had a movie pass that we used today!

I spent 1 day a week, for almost exactly a year being in the pool during my physiotherapy.  I can’t swim anymore.  I was lowered into the pool by what’s called a “Hoyer” lift.  It’s basically a crane for people who can’t walk.  Once I was in the pool there’s a rail all the way around the pool for me to hold on to.  I was able to walk & do some different physio exercises, all while holding on to the rail.  The pool is only 5 feet deep & it’s heated.  It’s quite a bit like a warm bath.  I would walk to each side of the pool holding the railing.  I’d float on my back with weights on my feet & I was to kick my feet during that time.  One leg is stronger than the other, I’d kick my feet & go in circles.  My therapist had me try a different walker in the pool as well, that didn’t work out to well.

 

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

 

Remember “covfefe = coffee in Russian”

 

Sad that Ed Sheeran’s tune fits with Disturbed vocals

 

If this is recorded I hope it’s different than this performance!

 

Ozzy Osbourne & Nine Inch Nails to headline festival!

http://loudwire.com/nine-inch-nails-ozzy-osbourne-headline-2017-monster-energy-aftershock-festival/

 

Wanna hear/see a clip of every “Muse” song on bass?  Looks impressive!

 

The first thing I thought when I heard Foo Fighters single “Run” was “Oh my, the riff really reminds me of Pearl Jam’s tune ‘Spin the Black Circle”

 

Another tribute to Chris Cornell.  This time a song by “Audioslave” shared by www.loudwire.com

 

20 songs produced by Kanye West, that I’ve never heard?  Rap isn’t my thing.  His birthday was Thursday!

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/pictures/20-songs-you-didnt-know-kanye-west-produced-20160411

 

The songs “Madness” & “Dig Down” by Muse are done with an electric bass I have never seen anyone else use.

 

Cool!  Another great tune from the new “Royal Blood” album.  This & Big Wreck were/are my most anticipated album of 2017, until I found out Foo Fighters’ may have a release this year.  Royal Blood is not a metal band, if you’re worried about that.  The singer plays a distorted electric bass & the other member of the group plays drums.  That’s all, just the 2 of them!

Does anything in the title really determine what anyone is like in person?  It’s never crossed my mind!  All I need to know is if I want to be around you, as a friend, or are ugly on the inside & I’ll let you do your thing way over there?  I found out one of Canada’s famous comedians was gay.  Apparently he came out when I was in the hospital & guess what………………….there was no difference at all.  Still hilarious, I had no clue he was gay.  He was funny before he came out & he continues to be funny!  Unless you’re a member of a terrorist organization or KKK, I’ll give you a chance.

That was strange, yes I’ve heard of them before.  That was as weird as Marilyn Manson for me?  At least their happy with what they’re doing.

 

I love “The Agonist” out of Quebec!  This is what type of music that calms me & put’s me to sleep.  Anywho, “The Agonist” shared it….

 

I have a Fender Telecaster.  From a good friend got it for me, signed by Ian Fletcher Thornley of Big Wreck, given to me while in the hospital.

This song was recorded during the sessions of “The Joshua Tree” but it was shelved for years and later released on a greatest hits album

 

Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden) he beat throat cancer while recording the album they released & toured!!!  I’d give him my vote for “Rock Titan of the Year”

So Maynard is doing stuff with “A Perfect Circle” this year?  I’m guessing no work on the supposed new “Tool” album, you know, his original band?  Or is this more misleading from the Tool camp?

Happy, happy, joy, joy it’s finally here.  If you follow politics or not you’re likely tired of the 16 yearlong campaign in America.  I don’t like politics, so I’m really glad it’s finally Election Day in the USA.  Just wait, in 3 weeks they’ll start a campaign for 2024.  I hope America has made their decision & are voting today.  I don’t vote here in Canada, but if I could I’d vote in America for this election.  I don’t think America is the greatest country in the world, they are probably the most powerful country in the world though.  “With great power comes great responsibility”

I’d have to agree with Louis on this one!!!!!!

OK America.  Your neighbors to the North are watching & judging you, don’t screw this up?  Forget “Who let the dogs out?”  How about “How did you let Trump get this far?”

I learned to play both & the guitar part in the verses were variations on the F# chord, that’s what I learned anyways?  Yes, I like both songs.  “Immigrant Song” is easily in my top 5 Led Zeppelin songs

 

I’m loving this new Big Wreck tune!  I hope they announce the album release date soon!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING CANADA!

Thanksgiving weekend & Kim’s parents & brother came down.  We had our turkey day on Sunday at Sherry & James’ place.  Good to see them!  They live near Prince Albert, roughly 3 ½ hours north of Regina.  We haven’t been to their house since 2007.  Too long!  Since I had cancer, they come to Regina.  If Kim’s younger brother can get time off work he come as well.  He made it down this weekend.

I don’t know what it was but shortly after 5:00 pm yesterday, before supper, I could have easily fallen asleep in my chair?  Even today we got up & started cleaning, after a little more than an hour, Kim & I were both exhausted?

 

Thursday I went to this show at the Casino & then Saturday I returned to see a different show.

 

Went to the Casino again Saturday.  This time to see “I Mother Earth” their 20th anniversary of the album “Scenery & Fish”.  Yes, I was 16 when this album was released.  They broke up after their 4th album.  I saw them once in ’96 in Saskatoon on tour for this album & once in 1999 or 2000 on tour for their 3rd album.  “Scenery & Fish” is the most popular album of theirs, I think I read somewhere that it went 3 x platinum.  That seems to me to be an overstatement?  The only thing missing from the show was my mother.  My brother & I should have been washing the dishes listening to this album with our parents in the living room & my mother shouting at us “TURN THAT CRAP DOWN!!!!”  I don’t think she likes I Mother Earth?  I could be wrong though?

Fantastic show though!  They came out & played the entire “Scenery & Fish” album in order.  That’s something I think fans would like to see most bands do?  Play the entire new album & then a few other songs.  Most of these songs I’d never heard live, & probably never will again.

If they continue to tour & release singles, it’s pretty much a guarantee that you’ll hear these first two songs & maybe more?

These 2 songs are pretty much a guarantee to hear!

Yes, they’re a Canadian band.  This is from their 2nd album release in 1996.  This was only the 3rd time I’ve seen them live.  Once in 1996, 1999 or 2000 & this Saturday.

 

 

Can’t say I’ve ever been a big fan of Iggy Pop, but here’s an interview he did with Rolling Stone

Far too much good music coming out near the end of the year!  4 albums on preorder & a few I’ll wait on.  Here are the preorders I have yet to receive on iTunes finishing on November 18th

 

A couple of albums I know are coming out in November that I’ll have to wait for.  Gotta save cash for Christmas!  Always more important to give rather than receive!

I don’t know what it is about “Bruno Mars” I just find his music incredibly catchy!  I’m still cautious about getting the Metallica album?

 

Possibly “Into Eternity”, “Big Wreck”, “Royal Blood” & “Paramore”?

 

I like the new “Green Day” album, for me, it’s the third best album of the 3 I bought on Friday though.

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.”

ALMOST GOT TO MY DAILY TOTAL TODAY/BREWSTER ENTERTAINS ME.

I fell asleep to “Oasis” the album “Definitely Maybe” woke up to pee at 4:00 am, crawled back into bed & listened to “Oasis” the album “Be Here Now”

Emptied the dishwasher & made breakfast to “Candlebox” the album “Disappearing in Airports” then put on “Coldplay” the album “A Head Full of Dreams”

I exercised to “Trivium” all albums on shuffle other than “The Crusade”, just the instrumental song “The Crusade”.

They’ve got 6 other full length studio albums I like & own. 4 actual CDs & 2 from iTunes. I own the CD “The Crusade” but I’m not a fan of that album.

I was close to getting through my regular daily exercise. I should get there by Thursday or Friday?

Our dog, Brewster, is hilarious! All 12 ½ pounds of him make me laugh out loud anytime I see him doing something odd! Late last week or maybe on the weekend I could tell he was dreaming. We were in bed, Brewster sleeps with us, I had my noise canceling ear buds in yet I could hear him? He was asleep but he was barking at almost full volume for a minute. Usually it’s 10-20 seconds of quiet barking. Whatever he was dreaming about he wanted it bad! He didn’t even wake up when I was busting my gut out loud.

The next day he was sleeping in his dog bed, barking. Just his normal dream bark, but I laughed. I always think he’s dreaming about squirrels. “I’m gonna get you squirrel” at least that’s what I like to think when flopped out on his side barking & twitching his legs!

I love it when he tries to “fix” his bed. All curled up in a circle in his dog bed, then you hear & see him barking & twitching all 4 legs to get it as perfect as he can. For the first time yesterday I saw him pushing his bed with his head across the living room. I chuckled out loud again! He’s my main source of entertainment!

AWESOME! Another Canadian band going on tour & skipping right passed Saskatchewan & Manitoba! Sad! A typical Canadian tour is Montreal, Toronto, & Vancouver (some times Calgary & Edmonton). I’ll go to Calgary or Edmonton if it’s someone I really want to see, the other locations are a 2 day drive. Montreal is even further. Will I be seeing this tour? No! If they were coming to Regina I would. Saskatoon is 2.5 hours away but I’ve made that drive too many times since 1996 to see I Mother Earth. It’s a really long/boring drive. It certainly doesn’t feel like 2.5 hours, more like 8 hours!

GMOs from a farmer’s mouth. BOOM DROP THE MIC! There has been thousands of scientific studies, & farmers, most of them I assume use GMO seeds. As for taste, that’s pretty subjective. I like seafood, Kim doesn’t. I don’t like potatoes, Kim does.

http://findourcommonground.com/food-facts/gmo-foods/

Do what you want. I’m trusting science & a farmer, not Neil Young or a healthy 14 year old. The last www.youtube.com link is long if you like skip to 1 hour & 36 minutes for the results of the debate if you like. If you’re growing your own food are you sure the seeds aren’t already modified? I’ve heard, I’m not positive on this, that none GMO seeds aren’t easily available to the general public? Like I said this is what I will do. You don’t have to do the same. Do what you feel is best for you.

Opeth has another studio report. Dream Theater songs are long, but Opeth’s songs can be even longer! You really do have to set aside a free hour to listen to an Opeth album & it’s not tap your feet music!

Announcement from The Pretty Reckless. “Our new album, Who You Selling For, is available October 21.

The band is too heavy for me. I don’t listen to them.

 

I’ve been there, it happens & I would just repeat what melody goes with the music.
