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.

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!

I fell asleep to “Neil Young” his “Greatest Hits”

I exercised to “Tremonti” the album “Dust”

 

500 leg lifts, 200 pushups, planking, yoga, & 100 back flexes this past week.

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

On Thursday the planking & yoga did not happen.  I wasn’t able to have a nap on Wednesday when I woke up at 4:00 am tossed & turned until 5:00 am then got up.  I was over tired.  I slept in on Thursday, woke up & stayed in bed until 10:00 am.  I was very tired still & just said no to the planking & yoga.

As much as I don’t consider myself as physically handicapped, I’m reminded that I am physically handicapped every day.  “Wait, I have to get into my wheelchair to do anything” is my first thought every day.  I’m lucky though.  I can stand as long as I can hold onto something & put away dishes in the upper cupboards, I can go to the washroom as long as there is a handicap stall, my voice is getting better, it’s not great but it has definitely improved.  I do practice my guitar once a day for about ½ an hour.  I’ll likely never drive again, no biggie!  I don’t want cancer to define me even though it will be a part of my life, likely, until I die many years down the road.

The best part about having had cancer is that I don’t fear death like I used to.  I don’t welcome it, but I don’t fear it.  Now I’m “Satisfied” with my exercise, for a bit anyways.

 

Thursday evening at the moment.  To say I’m in a bad mood would be a HUGE understatement.  We lived in our first house built in 1955, new mid-efficiency furnace.  The pilot light went out once.  We moved to this condo on December 18th 2013.  Brand new place, we were one of the first 6 suites to move in.  The hallway is always cold!  Our suite is another story, we’re calling, again, for the A/C to be fixed.  It was +35 Celcius today, it’s 7:10 pm & it’s +26 degrees Celcius in here.  This will be the 7th time we’ve had to call about the A/C for our suite.  If you’re cold in the winter, come on over it’s probably beach weather here.

(+26 Celcius = 78.8 Fahrenheit, +35 Celcius = 96 Fahrenheit)

I can’t turn on the A/C in the winter & I’m not allowed to put tinfoil on the windows.  It has to be +15 Celcius outside for me to turn on the A/C. When it’s almost +30 Celcius inside, I don’t care what the temperature is outside.  Yes, we face south and get the sun all day every day.  I loathe the heat.  Why am I sweating at this time of day sitting on the couch watching TV?  This is likely the 7th time we’ve called in 4 years.  That’s likely an under estimated guess.

Well look at that, Kim woke me up before she left for work & had the A/C on.  The plumber came to look at it anyways & will come back next week to check on it.

 

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

 

Let me get this straight, & I’m not defending Kathy Griffin in any way.  She posts a photo of Donald Trump’s severed head & we all know it’s fake.  Trump says “She should be ashamed”, true, that was in very poor taste.  HBO airs a TV series, Game of Thrones, full of rape & multiple severed heads of kings.  Sure HBO tells you it’s full of R-Rated stuff, so they’re OK.  Did any political debate have a warning if Trump was involved in the debates last year?  I didn’t watch them all, but the ones I watched had no warnings?  Would anybody want to have their kid looking up to the current president as an idol?  For me they’re both wrong for what they’ve done.  It’s out there now.

I’m assuming the link below will not work by the time I post this.  All I can say about the situation is, Trump blurted things out on the campaign debates.  Kathy Griffin had time to think about what she was doing, it was pre-meditated.

18 years ago on May 31st In Flames released the album ‘Colony’!  I didn’t get into them until I saw them live in Saskatoon 11 years ago, yes I’ve got all of their albums & DVDs now.

 

Members of ‘Sevendust’, ‘Alter Bridge’, & ‘Tremonti’ gather to create the band ‘Projected’.  I guess they have some albums out on iTunes one from 2011 & 2012, as well as a single from 2011 & 2014.

 

Don’t most people of my generation miss Chris Cornell?  My favourite album from them is easily “Badmotorfinger”.  Thanks Corey McDonald!

I fell asleep to “Lamb of God” the album “Sacrament”, followed by “The Watchmen” the album “Live & in Stereo”

I exercised to “Into Eternity” the album “Buried in Oblivion”

I vaguely remember moving from the Pasqua hospital to WRC.  I didn’t understand why I had to move?  I was doing some light physiotherapy at the Pasqua.  I was very unclear as to why I was moving?  When I started my physio, occupational, & exercise therapy, I understood why the move was necessary.  I didn’t know at first, then I realized the focus was on therapy as well as being able to receive the medication I needed.

I had all of my family & friends come to see me within the first 2 years, 2008 & 2009.  Some I hadn’t seen for a while & some that I’d see daily from work.  Even my employer was calling my parents daily to get an update!

I was still in the Pasqua hospital for my 29th birthday in January of 2009.  I heard there were roughly 70 people there.  Mom made a huge amount of chili for everyone & Grandma made a couple of cakes for everyone.  I couldn’t really drink any type of liquid but know alcohol was not allowed.  I think there was a choice of pop & juice?

If I was on stage & saw someone using their cell phone for anything other than an emergency, I’d just stand there & wait until they were done.  Reason 2083 for me not owning a cell phone!

Friday evening, I watched the baseball game while slightly intoxicated.  It felt like an 18 day work week to me.  I needed to cut loose somewhat.  I don’t even work at a real job, I was just exercising as normal.

Best part of the weekend thus far is as of Saturday after the Jays game they have won 4 games straight & have won 7 of their last 10 games with 7/25 of their everyday roster being on the disabled list.  2 of them are expected back this week.  At the moment they have $85 million not playing due to injury.

As for mother’s day, BBQ burgers are what mom’s craving.  Unfortunately Kim’s mom lives a few hours away.  Happy mother’s day to my mother-in-law.  Sorry I won’t be on here much this weekend as usual.  Especially this weekend, very busy!

 

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

 

Kim & I will be binge watching “13 Reasons Why” on Netflix.  If you haven’t started watching it, what’s wrong with you?  Hahahahahahaha!

We’ve already watched the first season of “Riverdale” on Netflix.  It’s an original Netflix show, but it airs on the CW channel before that episode is on Netflix?  It’s the characters of the Archie Comics in a murder mystery show.

I’ve listened to the new Paramore album “After Laughter”.  It has a distinct 1980s pop sound throughout the album, in a good way.  It’s a light summertime album.  I really like it!  Each song is different.  They don’t get any praise from me the first listen, but by the time I’ve heard them 3 times I’m hooked!  Reminds me off the “Fine Young Cannibals” album “The Raw & The Cooked”!  I love that album also.

 

Tool, I think we’ll have to wait the entire 10,000 days from the release of “10,000 Days” in 2006.  The good news, we’ve been waiting 10 years already only 17.3 years to go!!!!!!!!!!

 

25 years ago.  Pearl Jam’s MTV unplugged

 

I don’t waste my time & energy hating a band.  I just choose not to listen to certain bands such as AC/DC, Nickelback, Theory of a Deadman, Metallica, KISS, Guns n’ Roses, etc.  If you like them, it’s all good with me.  I like Motorhead & they’re band where each song sounds similar, I just prefer their sound.  I only have 4 of their albums & 2 of them are greatest hits albums.  I don’t need anymore, they’re all very similar

 

 

As for the Rush comment on the previous post.  I like Rush, just has to be post 1985 for me.

Friday we watched a bunch of stuff from our DVR.  Kim had a hair appointment on Thursday right after work, so she wasn’t home until 8:30 pm or so.  I watched the Blue Jays lose both games of a double header that day & evening.  If there’s a way to lose a game, they’ll figure it out!

Friday we just hung out on the couch.  There was a new episode of “Riverdale” on Netflix that we watched as well.

Saturday I had a blood test, then we grabbed lunch at Tim Horton’s on the way home.  Then a lazy day at home.  I watched the Jays game & Kim went out grocery shopping with her sister, Sherry after Kim came home from rollerblading.  It’s a little windy here but it’s a nice spring day!

Plans changed for the day today, as soon as we woke up one of our friends texted Kim, our friend Jolene woke up with a sore back.  “Auntie” & “Uncle” to the rescue.  I was going to just be lazy & watch the baseball game.  Now I see a lot of painting, colouring, sticker, & perhaps a cartoon movie or some “Paw Patrol” today.

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today.  Stretching everyday & many routine appointments to come by the end of July.

 

With their win on Saturday before the game on Sunday they’re 7W – 17L, not good, so for the sake of making a move they got rid of their backup catcher.  I’m sure the guy who plays twice a week was the problem?

I fell asleep to “Pearl Jam” the album “Ten”

Just stretching to “Soundgarden” the album “Badmotorfinger”

 

Yes, I’m feeling better, I just have an annoying cough that I can’t shake off.  My chiropractor saw my MRI.  He said I could have surgery ASAP or leave it until later on.  My leg & back feel fine right now, but I’ll see the surgeon & have the surgery as soon as I can.  Why wait, let’s get it done & over with.

I chatting with a friend of mine who’s friend’s daughter was mugged & shot in the face.  The daughter is 24-25.  My friend was angry that something that stupid & random could even happen.  Kim & I watch The Ellen Degeneres Show every day.  First thing when Kim gets home from work.  I couldn’t find the author she had on the show Wednesday, but I tried to remember something the author said.  The author of the book had lost a young child.

I remember the author saying ‘Don’t ask if you can do something.  Just do something to help.  Don’t make them reach out to you.’  That really got to me, that’s what I told my friend.

I never thought of it that way?  I’ll remember that.  Of course they need help, anyone in that situation would.  The smallest thing can go a long way.

Nothing is certain in life other than “I know I was born & I know that I’ll die the in between is mine”

Sure, the in between is yours but there’s often random people or things that can mess with your life.  You have to learn how to deal with situations that arise.

http://www.reginapolice.ca/2017/04/request-assistance-robbery-7/

I remember being in the hospital & people would ask me what I needed or wanted.  Cam & Michelle asked me what I needed.  I wanted to live, but that’s not what I asked for.  I asked for a copy of “Batman: The Dark Knight” that had recently been released.  My uncle in Airdrie, Alberta also asked what I needed I said ‘The Rick Mercer Report’ book.

I don’t know what I was thinking, the fact that they caught me awake was a shot in the dark!  I watched the movie in the hospital.  I tried to read the book but didn’t realize I had bad double vision.

I didn’t really know I had cancer with a very slim chance of surviving.  I figured I was maybe sleep deprived or something like that.  Corey brought me the 2nd Thornley album that he knew I was waiting for.  Laurie brought me 2 signed guitars, 1 signed by Ian Thornley for me, & 1 signed by Chad Kroeger of “Nickelback” to raffle off.

Those all may seem like little insignificant things, but they’re were all sincere & showed that they care.

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today.  Slow/Quiet week.  Stretching everyday & many routine appointments to come by the end of July.

 

I just googled release dates for 2017 that are confirmed, but yet to be recorded, I saw no Tool.  I did see A Perfect Circle though under the TBA section.

 

Highly Suspect made a 2nd video from their 2nd album.  “The Boy Who Died Wolf” the song “Little One” LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Todd Bryanton’s “Beep Beep I’m a Sheep” got a remix!

 

Took long enough.  The Stone Sour album has a release date on June 30th, preorder is now available on iTunes

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

 

Dave Grohl & his mother, Virginia Grohl, on Stephen Colbert

 

Soundgarden shared it.  I was listening to this album earlier this week!

 

I like these guys catchy pop band that still remind me of INXS light.

I don’t get the point of reissued albums?  Always comes off to me as a cash grab for the artist or their estate.

FYI I saw a photo earlier this week of Soundgarden rehearsing & the caption said “Rehearsing for tour”

I fell asleep to “Pearl Jam” the album “Ten”, followed by their album “Vitalogy” work up to pee & fell asleep to their album “VS”

I exercised to “Dire Straits” their “Sultans of Swing” greatest hits album.

Weekly exercise total; 1300 crunches, 150 pushups, & 40 back flexes

So in addition to my exercise, I’m now playing “bass” with Corey, his idea to help me out.  We’re choosing easier songs until my left hand is up to speed.  I get very frustrated trying to play guitar.  Before when I learned, I picked it up learned the notes and basic chords & I was good enough to sing & play in front of an audience.  I never really practiced it.  This week I’ve spent at least half an hour to 1 hour practicing.  It’s a love/hate thing for.  I like doing it, but I hate having to practice something I used to do for fun.  My brain knows what to do, my left hand doesn’t seem to care though.

I’m not playing an actual bass, I’m playing the bass line to the song until my fingers get stronger for actual bass strings.  That’s how I taught myself to play real guitar.  I learned bass lines on acoustic guitar to teach Rob how to play actual bass in University.

After posting on Wednesday, I grabbed my guitar again.  Managed to finally “train” my fingers into playing power chords & a few actual chords.  The change of fingering the chords is slow, but I’m sure it will come eventually.

I was getting a bit down but with Corey’s brilliant idea, me being able to do some of my exercises, & baseball starting soon, I’m in a much better mood.  Great call by Corey noticing I was a little stuck.

We’re learning one song at a time.  Corey & I are Foo Fighters fans.  I figured since we both know the song “Learn to Fly” & it’s pretty easy we’ll start there.  I don’t think Corey has ever sang but he said he’s willing to try.  He asked me, a long time ago if I could teach him.  I don’t know what I’d say other than repetition.  I was terrible when I started, but the more I did it, the better I got at it.  I’m pretty sure being in choir in high school helped.

 

This director is more known for action movies such as “Paycheck”, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”, “Transformers”, etc.  I’m slightly skeptical about him directing a movie about El Chapo

I was listening to a sports talk show Thursday night.  I’m glad I’m not the only one that thinks the Blue Jays are set up for disaster in LF & 1B.  If this is what they’re sticking with everything else needs to be perfect!

 

3 new bands I like all in some type of video competition by www.loudwire.com
