I fell asleep to “Royal Blood” the album “How Did We Get So Dark?”

Followed by “Nothing but Thieves” their debut self-titled album

Why is this world so full of hatred?  Does anybody see religion against religion, colour against colour, gender against gender, or sexuality against sexuality?  Somebody PLEASE show me where that is written & who wrote or said it?  If any of this is true, why aren’t all Muslims terrorist?  Or all white people a part of the KKK?

It’s not Religion or else I’d be in a holy war against all non-Christian Religions.  I don’t care about someone else’ sexuality, race, or anyone’s difference in lifestyle!  If you’re a good person, let’s hang out!  If you’re not a good person, GO AWAY!  If only it was that easy!

I don’t understand the Q in #LGBTQ.  I don’t have to understand it, I have to acknowledge it, and I do.  I know it stands for ‘queer’ but none of those initials should not define you as a good or bad person.

My other question is the song “Imagine” by John Lennon appropriate at Christmas time?

Great song about peace!!!!!  If there’s “…no religion….” There’s no Christmas!  Kim & I were watching “A Pentatonix Christmas” & that was the final song.  Great song, but I don’t understand why it’s in a Christmas special?

 

I think everyone has both a good & bad personality.  I also think we can all do a little better & focus more on the good in us.  Not just at the holiday season, but every day!  We can all do better every day!

 

You know it will be entertaining.  You know………………..because he’s crazy.

Rolling Stone’s top 50 albums of the year.  Wow, my list will be 10, I couldn’t afford 50!  I may have bought 15 or 20 & some of them were just OK.  2 of these 50 albums I bought & will make my list.  Most of the others I’ve either never heard of or are just not for me.

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/lists/50-best-albums-of-2017-w511763

 

We can’t afford the gas to see Queens of the Stone Age in Calgary, Edmonton, or Winnipeg.  I would REALLY like to see them in Calgary on Thursday, May 17th.  Forget about tickets, which regular seating or general admission is at most $70 plus fees & taxes!  I would expect wheelchair seating to be $49-$70 as it shows on www.ticketmaster.ca.   Gas alone will kill our money tree.

This looks like a really good show to me.  We also had our passports expire while I was sick.  This show is out of the question for me.  It’s also a bit to hit & miss for me anyways.  Tool, A Perfect Circle, Stone Temple Pilots, & Stitched Up Heart.  Many more too………

http://loudwire.com/tool-avenged-sevenfold-alice-in-chains-headline-2018-rock-on-the-range/

Sometimes I don’t like the fact that I live in the middle of nowhere.  Some bands must think “We’ll play everywhere in Canada except the northern Territories, Maritimes, & Saskatchewan”.  Weird, yet In Flames from Sweden has been to Saskatoon about 2 or 3 years ago!  Some bands hit Montreal, Toronto, & Vancouver & call that a Canadian tour.  Those places are minimum a 2 day drive for us!

I have to see Queens of the Stone Age at least once before I die.  This is their 7th studio album, & it’s AWESOME, makes me want to bust a move, in my wheelchair!

I fell asleep to “Paramore” again the album “After Laughter”, followed by a 1970s rock compilation called “Riff Rock High”

I exercised to “Corrosion of Conformity” the album “Deliverance”, followed by “Alice Cooper” the album “Paranormal”

 

Yes, I’m getting tired of talking about him & watching CNN like it’s going out of style.  He’s on a 17 day vacation.  I’m sure I have never taken 17 days off in a row since I had a summer break in elementary school!  How do you lead one of the most powerful countries in the world & just relax for 17 days?  Does this mean American’s get 17 days off too?  Crap, he still has Wi-Fi & his cell phone, be ready twitter followers.  I guess there are some renovations going on in “…that dump…” now as well (The White House according to Donnie).

Stephen Colbert nailed it saying “Change the locks while you’re at it”.  Hahaha! I feel sorry for the American public!  Nothing but bad news for our neighbors to the south.  Didn’t turn out the way most of us wanted.  But just like a random mass shooting, what ya gonna do?

With Donnie on vacation for so long, I hear there’s a term position available at the White House!  Hillary, Bernie you have plans this month?

I fell asleep to “Paul Simon” the album “Graceland”, “Pearl Jam” the album “Yield”, & finally “Ozzy Osbourne” the album “Blizzard of Oz”

 

I exercised to “Odds” the album “Nest”

How did I deal with being physically disabled, very bad, I felt useless & I wanted to hurt anyone I could.  I wanted everyone to feel as bad as I did.  After a few months & a stern talking to from my brother, parents, & wife I finally snapped out of my rut, got over it, apologized to those I had hurt privately & publically, & moved on.  All of it was heavy baggage that got too heavy because of my poor reaction.  I was just angry at the world.  So I dealt with anger & depression.  The worst struggle with it I’ve ever had with it.

If you’re ever considering suicide or if you’re in a rut, please talk to someone that is more than willing to listen.  Please don’t ever think of yourself as a burden to anyone.  You’ll be surprised at the number of people you’ve had a positive effect on & how many people love you & care about your wellbeing.  I’ve never called a suicide prevention hotline, but they’re there & more willing to listen. 1-877-4747 if you prefer talking to a stranger about any type of mental illness, be it a friend, family member, or yourself don’t hesitate to call.  The sooner you let it out & talk to someone, the sooner you can relax & get the burden off of your back.

I got lucky, I’ve talked with my high school guidance counselor, university counselor, social workers, my doctor, a psychiatrist, my wife, & my parents.  Now I’m OK & not embarrassed to talk about it.  I used to be & it was a topic I tried to distance myself from.  Don’t be ashamed about it 1 in 5 Canadians have some type of mental illness.  I’m on medication for my depression, don’t be embarrassed if you’re told to do the same.  A lot of mental illness’ can be caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain.  The proper medication can be quite useful.

 

Think of it this way, if all of that doesn’t make sense.  If you have the flu, cold or anything like that, you probably go see a doctor, right?  So if you’re dealing with any type of mental illness, more serious than a flu or cold, go talk to a doctor.  Maybe you’ll be referred to someone more knowledgeable on the subject, but you’ve started a conversation about whatever you’re dealing with so just see it through now & meet them half way if needed.

When I’m talking about mental illness, it does not just mean depression.  It includes OCD, ADD, ADHD, etc.

Dear Corey Taylor & Chad Kroeger,

Get over the feud already!  Will this matter in 20 years?  NO!  Your music does not sound comparably similar at all.  Who’s better?  It’s subjective!  Your devious plan worked!  Nickelback released an album, you 2 started a feud, and Stone Sour released an album.  Both albums hit number 1.

Sincerely,

A new single from Trivium!  Just the single, no album from what I can tell

Since it is but a single, I bought it & attached it to another Trivium album or I’d never hear it.  I still have issues with “The Crusade” & “Shogun” although many people call “Shogun” Trivium’s best album.

The Foo Fighters’ “Concrete & Gold” album had better be a really good one or I can see Paramore’s “After Laughter” taking multiple Grammy Awards home.  I don’t really put much stock into award shows, but some are fun to watch.  Believe it or not, I know “Lamb of God” has won a Grammy & have been nominated several times.

Royal Blood’s single is up for best track “Lights Out”

 

Pentatonix new single “Dancing on my Own”.  Single only $1.29 on iTunes.  Bought it & attached to their full length album.  If I left it as a single, I’d never hear it!  I listen to albums, not a jumble of songs.

I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” a concert in Montreal from 2000 that I recorded on cassette since it was on the radio.  “Melissa Auf Der Maur” her album “Auf Der Maur”, “Metallica” the recent album “Hardwired……to Self-Destruct”, “Paramore” the album “After Laughter”

I exercised to “Halestorm” the album “Into the Wild Life”

I just couldn’t fall asleep last night, but I was awake & exercising by 6:10 am, had breakfast, shaved, showered, & done editing this

Exercise total this week; 500 crunches, 500 leg lifts, 300 pushups, 200 back flexes, & 25 minutes of planking!  Every day starts with me exercising, no shower, dress in workout attire, & no breakfast.  Once I finish my exercises, then I allow myself to have breakfast, shower, put on clean clothes, & usually in this room to work on the next blog.

Wednesday was 5 years of me being released from the WRC.  No more therapy for this guy.  It was sort of bitter sweet for me, I met some really cool people, but I likely won’t see them in person again.  People I’d see almost daily for 3.5 years.  It’s like when I passed out at work, another big change.  I did make it back to visit my former co-workers though, once.

As I’ve stated before, I don’t consider myself as physically disabled.  Sure there are many things I can’t do, many that I can, & some that I haven’t figured out yet.  If I need help with something, there is always someone willing to help.  Until I say I can’t do something, let me struggle until I figure it out, or until I ask for help.  Don’t be afraid to let me “…sink so I can swim…”  The further away I get from Tuesday February 5th 2008 & Thursday July 26th 2012 they become a distant memory that changed things a little bit.  I could continue to have a chip on my shoulder or much better, forget about it & move on.  I’ll easily choose the latter.

 

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

 

These are the 5 songs from the Foo Fighters’ album “Concrete & Gold” out on September 15th

The following are live songs.  They likely include LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would think any hard core Foo Fighters fan, such as myself, will be fine with the album & won’t hesitate when it’s released!

 

Carpool Karaoke

Would you like a Stone Temple Pilots bundle of vinyl, CDs, & a T-Shirt?

My super smart brother converted some old cassettes to iTunes files for me.  The high school Chamber Choir cassette that we went to Newfoundland had recorded a cassette of songs.  A Foo Fighters concert I recorded from the radio in 2000, & he tried to convert a cassette by Johnny Amore from my high school days.

What does Trump have to do to be impeached?  There can’t be much left?  Where there’s smoke, there’s probably fire.  There’s so much smoke at the moment, I can’t believe I haven’t died of smoke inhalation here in Canada?????????????!!!!!

REALLY?!  I MEAN REALLY?!!!!!!!!!!????????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I could easily do an entire post about Donald Trump going back on his own previous statements.  I don’t need to though.  Everybody has made up their mind on him, & I’m not going to waste my time or energy on him.  I think ALL of us should consider ourselves as Global Citizens & get rid of these dividing walls!  I’m not surprised by anything Trump does at this point, but I’m always extremely disappointed that he does whatever he wants.

 

Cool version of Aerosmith/Run DMC’s ‘Walk this way’

Every person has a different opinion & I respectfully disagree with the comparison to Disturbed & Five Finger Death Punch.

I’m not in my early 20s anymore.  I have 2 Disturbed albums in the closet behind me.  My brother saw Five Finger Death Punch before cancer, B.C., he burnt copies for me.  I have no clue where they are, & I’m more than happy about that.  They were cool for a week when I was 26 or 27.

Those 2 bands among many others are why I don’t listen to Regina’s “rock” radio station.  I do love Trivium though, they’re too heavy for the “rock” radio station.

 

Hahahaha!!!!

 

My weekend starts now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I fell asleep to “U2” the album “Zooropa”

I got down to stretch for a bit to “Alter Bridge” the album “The Last Hero”

 

I tried doing a very light workout & just started coughing uncontrollably.  Started with crunches, tried to do 50 & was coughing by the time I reached 20 & figured I should stop, this was on Monday.  I guess no exercise until this cold is gone.  At least with the snow out there from last night I can justify having hot water with lemon & honey.

Tuesday & I’m still quite sick aka another wasted day in my eyes.  This cold has latched on & sunk it’s nails into me.  Kim got me some cold medication after talking with the pharmacist about what I could take without affecting my regular meds I take.  It’s weird to watch a baseball game sipping on hot water with lemon & honey mixed in.  Shouldn’t it be a hot dog & a beer?

I, of course, watched the baseball game last night & the Jays are actually winning here & there.  Their record isn’t pretty, but it’s coming around.  I’d never consider them a playoff contender despite more than 140 games left in the season. They are currently 6W-14L, not good!

Not much new here.  Wednesday morning & this cold will not let up.  Fell asleep coughing & woke up coughing.  My fever is gone though so I shouldn’t be sweating all day!

 

 

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 saw a photo saying Big Wreck are in the studio.  WOW fast turnaround!!!!!!!!!

This is why I watch baseball.  In the past 3 or 4 days, I’ve seen many things I’ve never seen before.  Neither have the retired baseball players broadcasting the game!

I fell asleep to “Ed Sheeran” the new album “Divide”, then “Pentatonix” their 4th EP of covers, & finally “Coheed & Cambria” the album “The Colour Before The Sun”

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

Just a lot of stretching this week to mostly “The Watchmen” the new album “Live & In Stereo”

 

We’re broke.  No other way to put it.  Maybe it’s because of tax season, but we have less cash flow than most average couples when it’s not tax season.  We spend the same amount of money a month as most people our age spend in a week.  Kim has a good job, & she enjoys it.  The last time we went out for supper was probably my birthday in January?  We can’t afford to travel anywhere.  I end up blaming myself, knowing I couldn’t have predicted this situation.  All of that being said, I do blame myself somewhat.  After all, I’m the one who had cancer & put us in this spot.  I’m NOT asking for a hand out, I’m just telling you how it is.  So many people have helped us out financially along the way, especially when I was in the hospital.  Thank you!

I always worry about our finances, since I’m terrible with money & I never see what we have in the bank.  I guess paycheck to paycheck is how we’re living now.  I always ask Kim if we can afford whatever I’m looking at purchasing.  My weakness is music from iTunes.  No matter how much it is, I ask Kim if it’s OK.  Kim gave me an allowance.  More than likely a good idea.  I’ve really slowed down on buying music anyways.  I know which artists I want to hear more of, & it’s not every band I’ve heard of!  I only had 2 years of mortgage insurance, but neither of us was working for almost 5 years.

I guess Kim & I suffer from the cancer side effect originally from Hawaii called “Lackamoola” as my brother found a birthday card for me years ago.

This is a one income no kids (oinks) household.  If there’s a child in this house, the battle is between Brewster & I.  I like stuff & he needs to be with someone 24 hours a day.  He has terrible anxiety.  If he sees me putting on my shoes, he starts to freak out.

 

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.

Yep, some are pro Planned Parenthood & some are totally against it, it’s a personal choice in my eyes.

I think I’m the only metal fan on earth that’s not a fan of “Mastodon”

After the game on Tuesday, April 11, 2017, the Toronto Blue Jays have played 7 games & only have 1 win to show for their efforts.  They are currently 1W-6L.  Last April they finished the month at 11W-14L.  I hear all of these broadcasters saying “Aw, it’s only April” & they want to see meaningful baseball in September.  Well these games are just as important if you want to see meaningful baseball in September.  What were Blue Jay fans doing during the last regular season game last year?  Praying to make it into the playoffs!  If you turn their wins & loses around for April of last year to 14W-11L, I wouldn’t have been biting my nails during the final game last year.  Right now 11W-14L looks like an impossible achievement.  Mostly the same players picking up right where they left off last year………………….sad.  The only real upside is at first base.  The guy couldn’t hit water if he fell out of a boat the last 2 years.  So far this year, he’s one of the best hitters they have.  He’s not a home run hitter, but he does hit very well as a contact hitter.  Only 155 games left in the regular season!

 

YAY!  Royal Blood release confirmed “How did we get so dark?” release date June, 16th!  No preorder or anything like that………………yet!  I think I just saw on their Facebook page that there will be a song available on Thursday, April 13th at 7:00 pm EST!  They’re not a metal band if you’ve never heard of them.  A drummer & bass player/singer, a hard rock band.  Dave Grohl called them to see if they’d open for Foo Fighters on the tour for “Sonic Highways” during 2015.

I fell asleep to “Walk off the Earth” the album “Sing it all Away”, followed by “Trivium” the album “Ascendency”

Just a lot of stretching this week to “Pentatonix” their new EP of covers “Vol. IV”

YAY, multiple doctor appointments set for me.  MRI, Cancer clinic, “sedatives” for the MRI (I’m extremely claustrophobic), blood work, & hopefully a cortisone shot as well.  Pretty much routine stuff other than the MRI & cortisone shot.  I hope to breeze through all of this, & get back to exercising!

A bit of a mixed up day.  My regular doctor is having surgery & is off until May.  I need to get a prescription from him before then for my MRI.

Halestorm drummer, Arejay Hale, speaks about deceased Alice in Chains singer Layne Staley

I see no Tool album in the near future?  Tool is touring & then A Perfect Circle plans to tour & record.  There’s only so much singer Maynard James Keenan can do.  I assume his 3rd band (Puscifer) & his vineyard are taking a backseat at the moment?

24 years ago Thursday, Tool released their first full length album “Undertow”.  Before that was a live EP and there has been 4 full length albums up to the 2006 release “10,000 Days”.  We are now on our 11th year of waiting for a follow up to “10,000 Days”.  As fans we’ve waited 3,747 + a few leap year days for a new release from Tool.  This means we have a few more decades to wait if the album is coming in “10,000 Days”!

Trivium’s Matt Heafy plays Radiohead cover on acoustic guitar

Sorry, just found a new band, & they are quite new.  They’re called “Halflives”, just thought I’d keep you posted.  1 album out next Friday, & 3 singles.  All available on iTunes.

They remind me of “Paramore”.  Fairly pop but just a bit heavier, at least that’s how I’d describe them.

 

I got “Pentatonix” & “The Watchmen” this morning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Both are FANTASTIC!!!!!!
