I fell asleep to “The Damned Things” the album “Ironiclast”

I exercised to “INXS’” Greatest Hits

Yes, I was in both.  I started University in September of 1998.  I took a year of Engineering, 2nd semester (January of 1999) was for me try & pass the classes I failed terribly, that didn’t happen for me though.  I really had no clue as to what I wanted to do.  I took one more semester starting in September of 1999.  I took random classes to see if something peaked my interest.  Nothing!

I worked at the Delta hotel from 1996 I think all the way through to the first 4 or 5 months of 2001.  My boss at the Delta was very accommodating with my schedule for school.  When I dropped out of university I worked full time, mostly at 5:00 or 6:00 am.  In the summer of 2001 I got a job at The Staples call center.  I had already been accepted to start SIAST in September of 2001.  I worked full time for that summer, then dropped my working hours to part time hours, I think I dropped them to 10 or 15 hours a week?  I know at one point, once I was in SIAST, they wanted part time workers to work a minimum of 20 hours a week.  I couldn’t do that so I quit to focus on school.  Corey McDonald started SIAST in December of 2001.

We bonded very fast for our mutual passion for chicken wings, beer, & guitar/music.  He really got me into heavier music.  I think once he started SIAST there were 5 guys in my class of 30 or so?  Kim was in that class & Corey’s wife Jolene was in that class as well.  Corey & Jolene started dating in late February of 2002.  Kim & I started dating about a week into April of 2002.  I got my first guitar for my birthday in January of 2001.  I was already singing with Dave, Rob, & Rydell in our band in University.

 

SOUNDGARDEN & PANTERA

University, SIAST, & later on in high school were my years to discover the music I liked & wanted to hear.  Even now, I’m discovering new bands.  Being in a band was always a great way to discover other bands from different places!  Like the group “Flatlined” from Ontario.  Nobody would have a clue who they were other than friends & fans of the last group I was in with my brother.  They were touring Canada & when they came to Regina we’d always play a show with them!

Unfortunately they have parted ways.  They were great though & there’s a good chance that whoever is reading this, 95% of you have never heard of them.

I had a CD holder that held 40 discs, wherever I went, it came with me.  Corey noticed I had “Superunknown” by his favourite band “Soundgarden” & “Pantera’s” Greatest Hits album.  He had 5 or 6 Pantera CDs he lent me & also lent me “Badmotorfinger” by Soundgarden.  I rushed out after listening to each CD once to buy my own copy of these albums.  I really liked them!

“Badmotorfinger” is my go to album when I listen to Soundgarden.  I listen to the 3 after this album just haven’t bothered to listen to the 2 before it.  I even own 1 of them on CD.  Here are the 3 CDs & 1 iTunes album I listen to & own by Soundgarden.

 

NOW IT’S TIME FOR SOME PANTERA!

 

Pantera’s guitar player was shot & killed in 2004, on stage in a club after Pantera had broken up.  His brother was the drummer for Pantera & the group “Hell Yeah” that he was playing with at the time.  I think that’s the name of the group?

I fell asleep to “Our Lady Peace” the album “Happiness is not a Fish that you can Catch”, “The Tragically Hip” the album “Trouble at the Hen House”, “Led Zeppelin” the album “Physical Graffiti”, & finally “Dream Theater” the album “Black Clouds & Silver Linings”

I exercised in silence today.  I’ve been having issues with my iTunes library, but may have it fixed today, I hope.  The guy I’ve been dealing with in the Apple customer service is FANTASTIC!  I’ve never been this impressed by any customer service person!  I’ve been working with him & the engineers at Apple for about a month.  He’ll call me out of the blue just to let me know he’s still working on my case.

 

500 pushups, 500 crunches, 500 leg lifts, 200 back flexes, 100 triceps pushups.  I achieved all of my exercise goals this week.  That always puts a smile on my face!

I could use a smile this week.  I’m getting stronger physically, which means I’m able to help out around the house more.  Kim is working herself way too hard, work & exercise for her boxing charity.  I try to get as much as possible done before she gets home, dishes, dishwasher, cooking, cleaning, etc.  Trying to do regular stuff at top speed gets me extremely stressed out!  By 3:00 pm I’m very hot/sweaty & tired.  I can’t tell you why or what I’m stressing out about, but I am.  Mostly it feels like there isn’t enough time in the day.

The reason I’m in a wheelchair is because I cannot walk without something to hold on to.  My legs work, I can get into our walk in shower after I carry my shower seat in there, I can walk with a chest high walker, I can reach the top shelf of our pantry by using the door frame to stand up, etc.  Our place has grab bars in each bathroom, & I have transfer polls I use to sit on the couch & to get into bed.

I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting older or just because I’m doing more stuff now that I’m able to?

November 11th is Remembrance Day in Canada.  A day when we take a moment to honour, thank, & remember previous veterans & current soldiers keeping us safe.  I think this year is what us forgotten Canadians really need!

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO CONTINUE TO KEEP US SAFE & THANK YOU TO THE VETERANS & THOSE WHO HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES KEEPING US SAFE!

 

THAT’S ALL FOR THE CANCER TALK FOR NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Right at the door someone should send anyone with a cell phone back to their vehicle.  It happened to me years ago, & made total sense!  I had it turned off anyways.  You have to turn it off in a movie theater, why not a concert.  Have some self-control.  Take a picture & a video of your favourite song, then put your phone away.  If you can’t do that, leave it in your vehicle or at home.

 

No, I don’t listen to Marilyn Manson, but he makes a valid point here.

 

Paramore is actually selling cassettes online, odd.

When the Toronto Blue Jays start spring training I have a wish list for the team.  3 new everyday outfielders, new everyday short stop, and possible new 2nd baseman.  1st base, 3rd base, & DH can & should remain the same.  Biagini, Osuna, Tepera, & Ramirez all in the bullpen with others.  Estrada, Stroman, Sanchez, & Happ as starting pitchers.  If all of this is possible that would be great!  Any of the new players should have speed, bat left handed, & have a good batting average & on base percentage.  Mr. Atkins & Mr. Shapiro, please don’t put the fans through another 2017?

When Corey McDonald started SIAST shortly after me.  He showed me the path to what is now my favourite “Soundgarden” album “Badmotorfinger”.  I pulled out the “Superunknown” album, & Corey asked if I had heard “Badmotorfinger”, I hadn’t, so he lent it to me the next day.  Since then that album it’s my go to “Soundgarden” album.

 

After hearing that album once, I was hooked & bought it ASAP.  Corey then opened my eyes to “Pantera” & I got hooked on “Into Eternity” the album “Buried in Oblivion”

This was in the early 2000s.  I started SIAST in September of 2001, my 2nd week was when 9/11 happened.

 

I’m not crazy, someone else just praised “Batman vs. Superman”!  Others have seen “Justice League” & found it to be the best movie in the DC universe!

I have “Thor Ragnarok”, “Justice League”, & “Star Wars VIII” to see.  I see good times ahead!

 

Nooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!  This is MY dark side of Rush.  Foo Fighters & audience fan.  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I fell asleep to “Lamb of God” the 4th album “Ashes of the Wake”

 

Went to my doctor appointment regarding my nerve on Monday morning.  No cortisone shot yet.  An MRI yet to schedule, to take a better look at things.  I’m EXTREMELY claustrophobic & MRI machines are very small = not a great experience.  I no longer see the light at the end of this tunnel, but it could always be worse.

I try to keep these posts short.  Sitting in my wheelchair for long periods of time isn’t going to help my back & such.  This nerve pain is making me frustrated.  I just want it to go away so that I can continue with my workout routine.

Not much stuff to share with you from Facebook either.  I don’t know of any releases in April even?  I know of a few albums that are recorded, just haven’t found out some release dates yet.

We tried watching the Oscars didn’t make it through it all, & watched the end yesterday.  Our DVR cut off the end of it & we missed the stuff at the end.  That’s OK with me, nothing got me excited really & I’ve seen “Trolls”, that was a great cartoon movie & why didn’t “Finding Dory” win their category?

Soundgarden has announced a North American tour!  Just call it an American tour.  No Canadian dates on the tour.

 

Slayer, Behemoth & Lamb of God are touring together.  I can’t handle Behemoth, Slayer is good in small doses, & Lamb of God are fantastic.  More miss than hit for me on this tour.

I fell asleep to “Diemonds” the third album “Never Wanna Die”, then “The Damned Things”

I exercised/stretched to “Big Wreck” the album “In loving memory of”

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

Remember that old mantra we learned as kids “Sticks & stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.”  Totally wrong!  A broken bone will heal in time, when you speak to someone you have to pay attention as to what you’re saying to someone new, or what might really offend a family member or friend.  “The pen is mightier than the sword!”  Still not true but much closer to reality.  A person might take words poorly, intended or not intended.  If it just comes out by mistake, you’re hooped, better start apologizing ASAP.  Hopefully the individual can let go of what was said.  Fortunately, I have great friends & family, who have forgiven me for things I said in 2011 & 2012.

Had my breakfast, then showered & weighed myself.  I was 265 pounds going into the hospital, the photo of me playing guitar in a white T-Shirt is me at 265, with a 38” waist, I came out of the hospital having a 42” waist, & today I’m 225.  Only problem is that some of my T-Shirts still don’t fit.  All of my fat went to my stomach.

I fell asleep to “Megadeth” the album “Dystopia” followed by “Vinyl Hero” the EP “7 Days on a Train”

I was watching CNN/”the fake news” all about the new guy, but I don’t need to tell you about it, it’s messy already!

Yep, I start physio therapy this week.  It’s long overdue that I get rid of this pinched nerve nonsense & get back into exercising.  I know that’s an odd thing to say but humans are creatures of habit.  My routine has been altered for over 2 months & I miss my routine.  Sitting around, stretching & very light exercise each day is really boring if you don’t have a driver’s license.

I guess ‘Supergrass’ are still around latest release was in 2013, who knew?  I only own their Greatest Hits album from 2004.

I wonder what movie ends playing “Caught by the Fuzz”?

 

I have a question for you? I’ve been watching a www.youtube.com series called “Banger” with the review episodes called “Lock Horns”, made by Sam Dunn who made the documentary “A Headbanger’s Journey.”  The 2016 ending had a large board of “metal” bands.  Am I so jaded that I don’t consider “Coheed & Cambria” metal? I like their music, I just don’t consider them as a “metal” or “hard rock” band, should I?

 

My left hand doesn’t work that well.  I wish I could try out a mini original Nintendo or a Sega Genesis if they come back.  I looked up the price of a mini Nintendo, but no way Jose!

All of that being said, I really don’t have much free time for video games.  The newer controllers have too many buttons for me, even when I was able bodied.

 

New “Ed Sheeran” video.  I really like this tune, or Ed Sheeran in general!

Sunday ended quietly also.  Mitch & Rachel, my brother & his girlfriend, came over to watch Batman vs. Superman that I bought on iTunes.  They left shortly after since he had band practice.  Quiet evening, supper, Kim did some laundry, dishes out then into the dishwasher.  Boring Sunday here.

I don’t watch the theatrical version, I watch the 3 hour ultimate edition!  I’ve seen the theatrical version once………………………………………in the theater.

I don’t imagine I’ll be doing much until this pinched nerve is gone, just more stretching & Tylenol so I can sleep through the night.  So I’m stretching & waiting for the phone to ring to get my referral to a physio therapist.

The sun has been poking through, with our blinds closed & the heat turned off it was 26C in here last night!  It was 25C during the day.  I was sweating just watching TV yesterday.  That’s why I’m in shorts year round!

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….
