Do you have a question about stage 4 brain cancer?  Ask if you do!

I fell asleep to “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “…like Clockwork”

I exercised to “Pretty Vicious” a 4 song EP & multiple singles

 

 

+40 Celcius outside, & our A/C isn’t working at all.  I guess that means it’s +29 Celcius in our suite.  This is our 6th summer here & there’s only been 1 summer we haven’t had to call about the A/C not working.  That’s the main reason I exercise ASAP in the morning.  In the winter it will remain +20 Celcius & nobody in the building turns on their boiler heat & the A/C will freeze if we turn it on.  We open our balcony door in the winter just as much as we do for using the BBQ in the summer.

All of our windows face South so it’s usually +20 Celcius or more in here year ‘round without the boiler or A/C on.  I often wish we lived in igloos all year like some other countries assume we do.

We borrowed a fan from my parents on Monday.  By far the best sleep I’ve had in a month!

 

Chris Adler not up to drumming for “Lamb of God” yet after injury.  There’s an album I can stop waiting for this year.  😦

Billy Joel plays “Pour Some Sugar on me”.  Would be nice if you could hear his piano in the mix.

If you think metal fans are crazy, read this study

I listen to one of the bands mentioned.  I’ve heard a 2 or 3 of the others & I’ve never even heard the name of the majority of other groups.

This is real!  I called the Apple support line regarding this.  iTunes is gone, but the idea of it isn’t.  Anything purchased before or after the Apple update will stream.  Everybody will have the option to buy music or subscribe to the streaming service after the update.  One store, one media player, & 2 ways to attain music, purchase for the entire file or “download” it as a streaming item only.  Nothing is really changing except the software, you will need pretty much anything other than an iPod Classic to stream the music.  I have a new iPod touch coming soon, yet my iPod Classic still works.  For me this is not a big deal.  If you still have an iPod Classic, I recommend you get an iPod Touch, iPhone, switch music players & order CDs from Amazon.  Unfortunately the update does not support the iPod classic.  You’ll need a cell phone or an iPod Touch to use the update.

https://www.businessinsider.com/apple-killing-itunes-macos-catalina-what-happens-to-your-library-2019-6?utm_content=buffer1dd72&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer-bi&fbclid=IwAR2ZI9E-uccGzdG4OXs-UtI8u0L9xmVnCGtNK_j4yNxI2rsN5GKkmOiDqKE

I think this is a very good move by Apple, since all I use it for is music!  The only downside of this move are the people who have working iPod Classics.  Mine still works but I have an iPod Touch on the way.  The update also includes PC computers.  What I forgot to ask is “If I stream the music I’ve paid for, do I pay the monthly fee to stream it?”  I don’t think that will be the case, but I could be wrong?  If I am wrong, I’ll just use it as a regular iPod classic, if it streams GREAT!  As for the release of the update?  It won’t happen until the fall of this year.

I don’t listen to Disturbed’s music, I haven’t listened to it since I heard their 3rd album & stopped listening to all of their albums.  Their lead singer doesn’t seem to take any criticism well, but he’s not against dishing it out!!!

 

 

ANDREE 3000

Yep, the guy from the rap duo “Outkast”.  I bought the album on CD where the 2 of them made an album without the other guy.  I liked the Andree 3000 album more.  “The Love Below” he also acted in the movie “Four Brothers” with Mark Wahlberg.  About 4 adopted boys returning home to find the killer of their foster mother.

Here’s one of their hits as a rap duo.

 

2003   THE LOVE BELOW

 

 

 

It took a rocket foul ball to hit a very young child at a baseball game before players reacted saying there needs to be extended netting around the 3rd base & 1st base line.  What did analyst/former backup catcher Gregg Zaun say before he got the boot from Roger’s Media 2 years ago?  Something to the effect of ‘Don’t buy a ticket in that area if you can’t react fast enough for a ball or a bat flying into the stands’.  I don’t like the reason he was fired, sexual misconduct which means there’s at least one victim if not more, but I’m elated he’s gone.  Just sucks that his actions likely made someone a victim.

Do you have a question about stage 4 brain cancer?  Ask if you do!

Music from this weekend!  “Greta Van Fleet”, “Nothing But Thieves”, “Live”, “A Perfect Circle”, “Coheed and Cambria”, & “Halestorm”

 

Really quiet here.  I realized on Friday I had some other TV shows recorded on our PVR.  I watched them & one episode of “Making a Murderer” before Kim got home.  She had many TV shows to watch on the PVR, of course we watched “The Elle Degeneres Show” first, as usual.

Saturday I moved from our bed to our couch & kitchen.  Cereal, yogurt & rum, TV (not all at the same time) later on.  Then 4 episodes of “Making a Murderer”.  Kim is sort of watching it too.

Today, Kim got up & went for coffee with Jolene.  The 4 of us met each other in SIAST.  Corey & Jolene were engaged a week or 2 before us & married roughly 4 months after us.  Really good people, great friends, & awesome parents to our “niece” & “nephew”.

Went over to our friends’ place this afternoon, Chris & Laurie’s for an afternoon visit, also really good people, friends, & they also have 2 cool kids.

Now it’s get ready for the week time.

 

Review of “Greta Van Fleet” & “The Struts”.  The Struts’ 2nd album is not actually out until October 26th.

CLASSIC BANDS   PART 1

These are the masterpieces.  Great bands that I like from before my time!

“Queen”

 

“Led Zeppelin”

That’s why ‘Physical Graffiti’ is my favourite LZ album

 

“The Beatles”

I saw ‘Our Lady Peace’ cover this, & now ‘The White’ album is my favourite ‘Beatles’ album!

 

“Stevie Wonder”

Stevie Wonder’s ‘Songs in the Key of Life’ is easily my favourite Stevie Wonder album.  I should just add this song to it…

 

“The Police”

 

“Pink Floyd”

 

“The Jackson 5”

 

“Alice Cooper”

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?”

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!

NO, I DO NOT FOLLOW CANADIAN POLITICS AT ALL! As a person with a physical disability, what the Republican Presidential nominee did by mocking people with disabilities does not anger me or the fact that I am physically disabled. I don’t really think of myself as disabled & I’m sure that many others who are mentally or physically disabled don’t think of it either. What that disrespectful mocking did was exactly what this election is about. He separated people more instead of bringing people together. He made it clear, there’s him, 400 feet of crap, upper class, middle class, lower class, 400 feet of crap & everyone else. My legs work, just not for a long period of time. I’ll take a stand for those who can’t, literally & figuratively. It’s disrespectful & does not warrant any gain for ANYONE! I feel bad for Americans, in that some of them support Donald Trump. Remember, he mocked EVERYONE that has a disability! That includes any member of the military who has fought for the country & that anyone can vote in an election.

A broken bone or whatever will heal. A vote for Hillary will never be taken away! I may be Canadian but #ImWithHer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is great! I have another solution for this problem. If you’re a civilian & not hunting, why do you need a gun? If you pull a gun out while the police are present, what do you think they’ll do? If you don’t carry a gun, the police have no reason to protect themselves with a gun? Imagine how simple that would be?

If your name is Rachel Gianoli you sing this……….

Please don’t sing this song if I’m within eye sight?

You’ll wake up the next day & someone will tell you “Hey you sang that Chewbakah song last night” you don’t want to know that. You’ll get angry along with your hangover. Right there you have the makings of a bad day! Drink responsibly………………..YOU’RE WELCOME!!!

DAY LIGHT SAVINGS TIME

I fell asleep to “Soundgarden” the album “Badmotorfinger” after most of “In Flames” album “Soundtrack to your Escape” then the first album of the double album of “The Beatles” album “The White” album

I exercised to “Foo Fighters” the album “There is Nothing Left to Lose”

The 3rd album containing the first mistake they made, in my opinion. Most Foo Fighters fans love this song & sing along to it. I think last year was the first time I’ve seen them not play since the release of this album in November of ’99.

^^That’s Dave Grohl’s mother that flips him the middle finger at the beginning. He had to teach her how to do it, from what I heard at the time.

Here’s the deal. If I have to shave my face, the top of my head will be bald also, if not the beard comes back. My hair is down to ¼ or ½ inch, being completely bald isn’t that far away! Those are now the rules, shaving sucks or blows, whatever is worse!

Well it is no longer “ancient times”. Saskatchewan residents do not change their clocks. Why? Because we don’t need to! If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!

I HOPE THIS WORKS, IF IT DOESN’T……SORRY I’M TRYING DIFFERENT STUFF.

I tried to fall asleep to “ The Police” a 14 song Greatest Hits album. Didn’t work so I tried roughly ½ of a “Simon & Garfunkel” album from a 3 CD box set I own, didn’t work either. I finally fell asleep to “Rage Against the Machine” the self titled album.

I woke up at 3:00 am & tried to fall asleep to “Soundgarden” the album “Badmotorfinger” no dice, already at 23 degrees celsius in here & it will just get warmer. I got up just before 4:00 am.

I didn’t exercise yesterday. Today I exercised to “The Watchmen” all 5 albums on shuffle!

Aw crap. Foo Fighters bassist was playing with “Sunny Day Real Estate” before joining Foo Fighters.

The drummer, William Goldsmith, also joined Foo Fighters but didn’t fit Dave Grohl’s standards during the recording of Foo Fighters 2nd album “The Colour & The Shape”. Dave Grohl re recorded the drums for the 2nd album & William left the band or was asked to leave, I’m not sure what happened? Sunny Day Real Estate got back together later on. Nate Mendel did not rejoin Sunny Day Real Estate.

WEEKEND UPDATE

Friday evening Corey McDonald came over to watch the Lamb of God documentary “As the Palaces Burn”, not the album, not the making of the album but the documentary of vocalist Randy Blythe being accused of man slaughter 2 years ago in Prague. It was filmed in 2012, the incident occurred in 2010. Do you remember what you were doing on a specific day 2 years ago?

Kim went out with Jolene & Hannah for supper & art supplies at the Dollar store for the times that we/”Auntie” Kim babysit Hannah.

Saturday we stayed in, we’re old! Kim did our taxes. I’m not employed, so mine is easy & full of zeros!

Sunday we were at my parents in the afternoon. We played some new music trivia board game they got for Christmas. The rules were VERY confusing. So it was sort of make up the rules as we go, while following our rules that were based on the vague rules that came with the game. We had supper there & just got home.

Totally what I’d expect from Liam Gallagher. Remember the ’90s with Liam & Noel Gallagher both in “Oasis” bickering constantly?

EXERCISE TOTAL FOR THE WEEK

I fell asleep to “Anthrax” the new album “For all Kings” released at midnight Eastern time, I listened to it once, started it again & fell asleep about mid-way through it.

I exercised to “The 1975” the other album I had preordered from iTunes. Guess who was the musical guest on Jimmy Fallon last night? The 1975 playing this tune from the new album “I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware”

The exercise total for the week is – 150 squats, 200 push ups, 2200 crunches, 180 leg lifts, & a five minutes a day of just stretching. We didn’t go walking this week that’s why the squats are high, since we knew we had a busy week.

As for Bautista signing with the Jays, if it was going to happen, I think it would have been done by now? No love lost here, we still have Donaldson, Tulowitzki, Colabello & Martin. I think Encarnacion & Bautista are a lost cause. I’m guessing the general manager and the President are both talking to other teams to see what they can get in return if a trade happens or they’ll keep the 2 until the trade deadline & see where the team in the standings? If they go or not the Jays still have a really good team!

MONDAY’S FAMILY DAY IN SASKATCHEWAN, THIS WILL CARRY ON AS USUAL!

Exercise total for the week? 2 days of walking 630 meters of walking with no rest period on Monday. 670 meters followed by a rest period then 304 meters after the rest period. All of that is a total of 1,604 meters or 1.604 Km. We were going to walk on Wednesday, I did 30 squats & emailed Kim that my hips & thighs were far too sore to go walking that day. 120 squats sets of 15, ½ hour of yoga, 240 push ups sets of 20, 1260 crunches, & 40 leg lifts on my hands & knees.

I’ve ventured a little more into the 21st Century. I now have a “Kindle” thanks to my parents who had an older model not being used. I read 2 chapters of a book (Dark Days, a memoir by D. Randall Blythe vocalist for Lamb of God) yesterday & plan to read whenever Kim goes out for groceries. Eventually I’ll get a 128gb iPod touch, I’m not a fan of touch screens. I have no cell phone, iPad, Tablet, Laptop or anything other than a desktop PC, a 160gb iPod classic, a plasma 51” TV & a 39” LCD TV. I don’t use music streaming sites either, I purchase music from iTunes. My wife has all of the mobile devices in this house, not me. My father is a technological genius with most things! I have trouble now reading an actual book since the print is too small, on a Kindle is much better for me, iPad not so much.

I hear Wednesday was the beginning of Lent. I’m not hard core Catholic but I’ll participate. I’ll give up potatoes since I gag on them, never liked mashed, baked or boiled potatoes. So far I’m doing excellent giving up potatoes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I fell asleep to “Big Wreck” the album “Albatross”
