Friday finished with me coaching the Jays on TV & then the Roughriders.  Both lost.  I’m either a terrible coach or I’m not shouting loud enough?!

Fairly quiet Father’s Day.  We celebrated Father’s Day on Saturday at my parents’ house.  My brother BBQd steaks for 11 of us. Mitch, Rachel, my parents, grandparents, my aunt & uncle, my aunt’s parents, us, & my aunt’s friend Lori.  Lori’s a part of the family & has been for as long as I can remember.  Saturday I woke up around 9:00 am & had breakfast, watched the Toronto Blue Jays lose again! Finished emptying & re-loading the dishwasher & then it was off to my parents place.

Honestly a pretty regular life in a wheelchair.  I did scrape my left ankle on something here on Saturday.  I didn’t even notice until I crossed my legs with my ankle on my right knee.  Then I noticed mass amounts of blood on my knee & ankle.  Didn’t feel a thing, cleaned it up & carried on, more of a hassle than anything.  Rub a little dirt on it & forget about it!

Sundays here are quiet.  Baseball, couch, groceries, & preparing for the week ahead!

 

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

Dave Grohl’s daughter plays drums with Foo Fighters in Iceland in front of 20,000 people!

A couple of new Foo Fighters’ songs live.  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

3 new songs?  There’s at least an EP on the way I would think?  That 2nd song I can’t say I’m big on.  Grohl likes to scream though, but REALLY, with an acoustic guitar, piano, & drums?

Sure, because we all want our favourite band to continue re-hashing the first album they made…….NOT!  BORING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

http://loudwire.com/bands-sound-nothing-like-first-album/

In Flames took a lot of heat on social media of fans saying this album wasn’t heavy enough.  I had no problem with it

 

I rarely listen to the radio.  We had some errands to do.  Kim runs into where ever we are & I flip through the 3 stations I can tolerate.  I usually can’t find anything I like but on Saturday afternoon & again in the evening I heard these 4 songs & turned it up!!!

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

People look at you weird if you’re head banging inside a parked vehicle in the parking lot of a grocery store, with the radio turned up LOUD!  I assume it’s because the vehicle is shaking?

I’LL REACH MY NORMAL EXERCISE NUMBERS VERY SOON!

I fell asleep to “Paul McCartney & Wings” the album of “Greatest Hits”

I exercised to “90s Alternative Playlist” on Apple Music.

Facebook is getting very slow for pop culture news, that I’m interested in sharing with you & for myself at the moment. Share some news for me please?

Yes, my muscles have been a bit sore over the weekend, I did reach my numbers in 3 exercises today! Tomorrow, I’ll do some of the 4th exercise & see how it feels?

I don’t put anything on the account, it’s a “free” preview for what I’ll purchase on iTunes. If you want to use it like I do, 2 computers are vital. One computer here has Apple Music & the other has iTunes. When we signed up for Apple Music it doubled all of the iTunes files. Once we separated the 2 accounts it was fine. So, I use it, but I don’t use it for “free” music. It, more like satellite radio but cheaper & WAY better! Apple won’t take the iTunes purchase files, I hope? If we stop paying the subscription for Apple Music, it’s all gone.

I don’t know if I’ve shared this on here yet? If I have, sorry? Feel free to skip past this if you like.

Movie ratings on iTunes are absolutely ridiculous to me, as are most ratings or reviews. I’ve rented and purchased 2 separate movies on iTunes. Both movies were given -22% & -27% reviews & I liked them both. Batman vs. Superman -27% & The Boss -22%. I busted a gut watching The Boss which we rented. I bought Batman vs. Superman & have watched the Ultimate Edition at least 5 times at home & once in the theater.

Batman vs. Superman will have quite few spinoffs that have been confirmed by trailers at comicon. I’m extremely anxious for them. I’ve heard some bad things about “Suicide Squad” though. I will champion Batman vs. Superman as 1 of my favourite comic book movies! But that’s me, not anyone else. I’ve heard rumour Ben Affleck will appear as Batman for 5 or 6 movies? Just a rumour though? Here are the upcoming spinoffs.

You’re gonna have DC vs. Marvel eventually & I’m in for both franchises!

I got 87% see what you can get! Name that band on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine!

I still wonder “How many of his hits occurred while on performance enhancing drugs?” He lied, got caught for a 2nd time, was suspended for a year, & continued to lie throughout his suspension. A-RoId will not be anywhere close to the Hall of Fame despite his impressive numbers!

BRAIN CANCER vs. ALS

I’d do more but that’s a TON of links to load. Sorry if they double, I’ll try to fix them but no guarantee? My back is annoying but I increase my exercise to my “normal” total daily!

I fell asleep to 2 albums, the 2 most recent albums by “Candlebox” first “Love Stories & Other Musings” from 2012. Then the album “Disappearing in Airports” released in April of 2016. Woke up in the middle of the night to pee, gotta stop that, & put on “Chevelle” the new album “The North Corridor”

I exercised to “Portal” the album “Blood Red Tape” My brother was listening to them in his car when we were with him. I think he said they’re an independent group from Alberta?

They have 3 albums on iTunes at the moment. This is the only one I’ve purchased so far.

Brain cancer & ALS aren’t a competition. This is how I look at it though, in my situation. I could have survived or died because of brain cancer. I don’t know much about ALS. From what I know, it ends poorly, to put it lightly. Surviving brain cancer I can work on things, everything. You can look at that as overwhelming or just start somewhere & chip away at it as long as you can. ALS, from what I know, is more of a “OH MY GOODNESS! What’s going to go first?” Once it’s gone you can’t really do anything about it, that would be terrifying to me! Sure I felt overwhelmed & angry at first, but I’m alive, I can work on myself, mentally & physically. Eventually it COULD be fine? Sure the odds are stacked against me. Do you gamble? The odds are stacked against anyone in a casino playing any game. I’m alive, it could be worse.

I have to admit, after 2 weeks of just stretching & resting my back, it’s difficult to get back into my routine of exercise, food, blog, TV. For years that was easy, sweaty, but easy & somewhat gratifying. I had never enjoyed exercising, especially cardio! I can ride an exercise bike forever, walking with my walker seems like too much effort for very little gain to me. When I lived at my parents place the recumbent exercise bike was in the basement. I’d pop in a “Lord of the Rings” movie & pedal for 3 hours no problem, I can still bike for an hour or more.

I get that musicians want to share what influenced them by doing a cover song. I loved playing cover songs live! That meant I didn’t have to write lyrics, just remember better lyrics. Foo Fighters do this for the majority of their B Sides on singles. You get a single from the album, a live song & either a cover song or a song that was cut from the album. Here are some original songs followed by their cover song by someone else. Some are good, some are OK, some are terrible, & some are “OK, why mess with a classic?”

Almost forgot about this one!

^^All of this is just off the top of my head!

EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL & CANCER TALK, ALONG WITH POP CULTURE

One share on Facebook from each reader would be greatly appreciated! I don’t make any money from this so I don’t “Boost” a post on here.

I fell asleep to – The new “Lacuna Coil” album “Delirium” that was released last night. Female fronted metal group from Italy. The Entire album.

Then I fell asleep half way through the new “Rob Zombie” album “The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser”

LANGUAGE & EXPLICIT IMAGERY!!!!!!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=csUf0MAUIs4

I exercised to “The 1975” the album “I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it”

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

Exercise total for the week. Remember this was a 4 day week for me Monday was a holiday; 6000 crunches, 420 leg lifts, & 240 squats.

I exercise my core muscles mostly. When I do my leg lifts on my back the entire point of that exercise is to keep my abdominal muscles flexed while slowly lifting & resting my legs as well as breathing throughout the routine. I always count in pairs doing my leg lifts on my hands & knees or on my back. 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3 etc. So when I say I’ve done x number of leg lifts, that’s the amount on both legs. On my hands & knees, every muscle kicks in, my abdominal muscles, my arms, my legs, my shoulders, etc. I’m at pretty much 60 squats, 1500 crunches, 100 leg lifts, 5 days a week unless there’s a vacation day or “holiday”. Next week I want to add sets of 20 push ups to the mix again, I know I can do at least 20 a day, so I’ll see how I feel after that?

I’ve combined my love of music with my stage 4 cancer survivor story. If you read this at all Fridays are the blogs with the most talk about cancer. If you prefer the music chat it’s here too. I don’t expect anyone to open each link, it’s there if you’re interested. This is also meant to be interactive, let me know what you like, what you don’t like, what you’d like to see more of on the blog or suggest an exercise I should try?

Power went out yesterday just before Kim got home & of course Brewster freaked out 2-3 hours of him panting & shaking at the front door. I just held him at the door & tried to keep his mouth closed so he couldn’t pant.

Thursday’s episode of “Netflix & Chill”

Sorry it was “Lacuna Coil” album “Delirium” that was released last night. A little heavier than I had anticipated. Still good though, at least with one listen thus far.

Sorry if this is late? Had to make a juice, & fix some iTunes files where you could buy a USB stick of the show after it was done. A Barenaked Ladies show here from 2007.

“If I had my way” the week & weekend would be split more evenly. 4 days of work & a 3 day weekend every weekend. I’d shoot for a 4 day weekend but that wouldn’t happen. “I’d make Friday part of the weekend” & make chocolate a high protein, no fat, no sugar food! I forgot too take my pills Saturday night aka I really didn’t sleep well. I woke up at 4:40 am to go to the washroom, fell back asleep pretty quick. I woke up, thinking I had slept for quite a while (I have no clock on my side of the bed), I got up and I always put my eye patch, glasses & watch on last. My watch said 6:30 am? I guess I didn’t sleep much at all? I don’t take sleeping pills anymore, I haven’t for quite a few years. I don’t know what pill makes me sleep out of the few I take? Those memory pills are working great!!!! I think they might be a placebo?

Making my juice or whatever you want to call it vegetables & fruit blended together. I turned on “Headstones” their 1st 4 albums on shuffle.
