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

I fell asleep to “In Flames” the album “I, The Mask”

I exercised to “Chromeo” two albums on shuffle.

5 day exercise total; 400 pushups, 600 leg lifts, 300 crunches, 200 tricep lifts, 450  squats, 300 back flexes.

The exercise is horrible until I get my butt in gear & get it done & out of the way, then I feel good & feel I’ve accomplished something.  It’s not something physical I can really show anyone though.

EX: My mother didn’t really understand what my job was.  I told her I was a printing press operator, she still didn’t fully understand.  I took her the first sheet of paper you set up & see how far off the colour is, & how far I needed to get the metal plates to move so it all lined up.  Then I took her a final sheet of paper from the same job once it was done & explained what I had to do to get it that way.

I worked at a console to the press.  I could manipulate each of the 4 or 5 colours from there to move them or allow the right amount of colour to a certain area.  Once I was done a job, I had something tangible/physical/material to look at & think to myself “Hey, I helped make that.”

I can’t really show what I do now.  I’m pretty tired for the rest of the day, I sit on the couch & watch some TV until I feel the motivation to shower or until I just can’t stand being sweaty & smelly.  I certainly don’t want to do anymore exercise other than some walking when Kim gets home to help me.

My cousin’s in town!  Went to my parents’ place on Tuesday afternoon.  A game, Chinese food for supper (wasn’t even oily), some TV, & left with my belated birthday gift…………..wait for it……………………oatmeal chocolate chip cookies & the blu-rays I lent to my cousins.  My mom & cousin baked them on Monday for me.  My grandmother’s “recipe”.  “Add a little more of this & an extra dash of this until the dough feels right”- Grandma.  My grandparents met each other while she was working as a baker at a bakery & he was delivering from the bakery.

I had a HORRIBLE day on Thursday.  A pity party for one, I just sobbed for a while & asked myself “When will this cancer crap all end?”  I’m tired & stressed & Kim is too.  It feels like a continual pile of bull**** being dumped on us that we can’t get out of, so we never take an extended break from what we do.  I exercise & she busts her butt working while also taking an evening class that’s once a week immediately after work.

I’m glad I survived cancer, but I’m INCREDIBLY sick of the nonsense & crap that comes with it after in my & Kim’s situation.  I exercise 5 days a week & when the f*** does that help.  I’m not going to chase a dream that’s unrealistic for the rest of my life.  To say this is getting old is an understatement!  I want the pill that Robin Williams wanted, called “F*** it all”.  I’m not about to give up, but I’ll never be whatever the hell “normal” is!  If it’s coming, it’s really f***ing slow.  I was EXTREMELY frustrated!  This is nobody’s fault, but I always feel like it’s mine, ALWAYS!

I think God & Satan got together & said “Hey, let’s mess with the guy who has manic depression.  It’ll be fun!”  I have a better idea, how about you don’t?

 

10 bands that influenced me & made me want to sing & play guitar.  U2, Barenaked Ladies, I Mother Earth, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Big Wreck, The Watchmen, Matthew Good Band, Tool, Led Zeppelin, & Queen.  Many more!

Yes I’m well aware that is 11 bands but I had to get Led Zeppelin in there.

I could never play fast, some of these are guitar influences, and the others are voice influences.

 

IN FLAMES REVIEW OF “I, THE MASK”

FANTASTIC album somewhat of a return to the earlier albums.  Still hardcore fans say it’s more of a rock album & complain about this album.  I think they want “In Flames” to just make duplicates of “The Jester Race”, not going to happen!  That album was released in 1997, I think it’s time the complaining fans jump ship if that’s what they want?

I didn’t get into “In Flames” until I saw them live in 2006?  The final tour for the traveling metal 3-4 hour extravaganza “Sounds of the Underground” tour in Saskatoon.

Yes, their last 2 releases were quite tame “Siren Charms” 2014 & “Battles” 2016 were pretty mellow as far as metal albums go, I really like “Siren Charms” though.

This new album “I, The Mask” is great from the Swedish melodic death metal group.  The first half is more like their old stuff & the second half is mellower.  Here are a few of my favourite songs from the album….

 

FRIDAY MARCH 1ST 2019 RELEASE “I, THE MASK” BY IN FLAMES

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

Music throughout the weekend.  “Dream Theater”, “Queen”, “Alter Bridge”, & “Lamb of God”

 

I forgot to mention this.  This past Thursday Regina won the bid for hosting The Grey Cup in 2020.  Tickets are expensive & it will be cold.  The home town Saskatchewan Roughriders had better make it to Canada’s Super Bowl!

We finally watched the movie “Bohemian Rhapsody”.  FANTASTIC movie, well done without much invasion into Freddie Mercury’s private life.  I do wish they showed the writing & recording of “Under Pressure” with “David Bowie” though.

Saturday was pretty quiet her.  Kim was working on her photo assignment.  I was clearing off the DVR.  Made it to Netflix in the evening & started watching “Murder Mountain”.  I watched 4/6 episodes & I’m still not sure if it’s a documentary about marijuana or the hundreds of people that go missing every year in some type of “Bermuda Triangle” in Humboldt County, California.  I will say it’s very interesting though!

 

DREAM THEATER RELEASE ON FRIDAY.  I’ll point out my highlights at a later date.

This is the first Dream Theater album without a song at 10:00 minutes or more!  I would listen to my iPod at work.  Dream Theater’s album “Systematic Chaos” & Lynyrd Skynyrd’s double album of “Greatest Hits” & that would take up 5 hours of my day.  One earbud in my ear & the other down my shirt so it wouldn’t get caught in the press.  Then maybe a sports Podcast or the mind numbing sound of the press’ through my protective noise cancelling ear muffs.

Juice is made, eggs to hard boil, & likely watch the biggest talent show for the movie industry.

 

HIGHLY SUSPECT

I believe it’s 3 guys based in New York.  They have 2 albums out.  The 2nd album was a sophomore slump if you ask me.  The singer also must find it tough to write any lyrics without using profanity.  Over the course of 20 songs spread over 2 albums there are 4 songs without profanity.  I’ll give you 5 songs in total, 3 from their first album & 2 from their 2nd album.  They’re supposed to be releasing a new album this year at some point.  I’ll have to hear it before I buy it, if I buy it?  I really like the first album though!

Just assume there’s LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

2015   MISTER ASYLUM

 

2016   THE BOY WHO DIED WOLF

WHAT CAUSES ME STRESS/DEAD SARA

No such thing as a stupid question!  Ask me & I’ll try to break it down for you!

I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “Ascendancy”

I exercised to “The Struts” the album “Young & Dangerous”

The Struts are getting a TON of playing time here as well!

 

Kim had a hair appointment after work on Monday.  Our vehicle wouldn’t start.  My dad took her to her appointment, picked her up after, boosted the vehicle, she took it in to the dealership Tuesday morning.  It’s a 2014 Santa Fe.  I think this is the first time we’ve had any problem with it?

She was going to come home between work & her hair appointment, but no go on that.  I was fine, made myself some soup.  I think that’s the first time I’ve used the stove top without Kim around.  I’ve used the oven many times on my own.

Streaming music stress’ me out WAY TOO MUCH.  I’ll be fine, I know.  Everybody’s using it & it has a place.  I would prefer the option to stream or download music.  Make an album of 10 or more songs $0 – $15 & the price decided by the musicians.

I don’t like that Apple Music & Spotify pay musicians a fraction of $0.01.  That doesn’t seem fair & if any streaming goes bankrupt, kiss your music from that site goodbye.

Where does it fit appropriately?  Do you have kid(s)?  Great, go for it!  A child won’t be listening to “Baby Beluga” forever.

My in-laws live in a small hamlet.  They have Wi-Fi but no internet.  They can stream anything but not download it.  If they want music, a streaming site is their only option.

We don’t have kids, so I use iTunes & Kim uses Apple Music.

We pay $27.99 a year for iTunes Match which means we can stream my downloads on Kim’s cell phone.  If iTunes goes down, I’ll use the old iPhone sitting in a drawer here.  The number won’t be activated, it will be used as an iPod only.  I can’t afford a record player or start a vinyl collection.

My iPod classic works fine for downloaded music.  Unfortunately it won’t work for streaming music.  I got it in late 2011 or early 2012.  Before I was out of the Wascana Rehabilitation Center.

The way I see it, Apple would be doomed either way in deleting either service.  Apple Music users would have to join another streaming site & those that use iTunes are hooped.

I can find multiple links confirming this & one link denying this.  There are bands already not putting their stuff on iTunes, just streaming sites?

Please remember this only my opinion.  You’re always entitled to your own!

 

“…And Justice for All” why did, drummer Lars Ulrich, approve this terrible mix with no bass?

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

Let’s play “Where’s Waldo?” but we’ll call it “Where’s the bass?”  Clearly Metallica’s not “All about that bass” at least not on this album.

 

I must see “Bohemian Rhapsody” soon!!!  I hope she has a cameo!!!  Hahaha!!!!

 

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!  Triumph the insult comic dog in Texas at the polls!

 

DEAD SARA   (I can’t stop listening to this group!!!!!!!!!!!)

I know I did a quick review of them, but not a thorough one.  They are based out of L.A., with 4 members.  They formed in 2003.  2 females & 2 males.  I believe the 2 guys are the rhythm section, drums & bass.  The lead singer, Emily Strong, also plays guitar.  Siouxie Medley is the other guitarist.

I was so glad I found out about this band.  When I went to iTunes it said others had also bought Nirvana & The Pretty Reckless.  Then they’d be right up my alley!  It’s hard for me to not listen to them.  They have 2 full length albums, a single which is a cover of Nirvana’s “Heart Shaped Box”, & 2 EPs.

I’m guessing if they started their career during the ‘grunge’ explosion in the 1990s, they’d possibly be VERY popular?

5 day exercise total; 400 pushups, 300 tricep pushups, 300 back flexes, 360 squats, 600 leg lifts, 300 crunches.

I fell asleep to “Dead Sara” both albums followed by the EP “Temporary Things Taking up Space”

I exercised to “Sandbox” the album “Bionic”

Yes, the singer is Bubbles from the Canadian TV show “Trailer Park Boys” the guy with the glasses

 

Monday was tough after 9 days off.  Oddly, it got much easier as the week progressed?  That was a pleasant surprise.  I could have just sat here & complained about a boring life, done nothing when I was released from my cancer rehabilitation.  Instead I chose to try & get myself as close to what I was before cancer.

Remember that whatever is going on in your life you almost always have a choice.  The path of least resistance was not for me.  “Yeah, let’s make it as difficult as possible” – idiot/me

After almost 5 ½ years, I’m finally seeing some muscle, not much but some.  After watching all of that www.youtube.com stuff on exercising, I can tell you it’s a flat out LIE!  If it was true, I’d have been quite muscular 4 or 5 years ago!  Watch a www.youtube.com video & try to replicate it, doesn’t work in my case!

 

Today is the day!!!!  “Bohemian Rhapsody” is in theaters today!!!!!  I don’t like joining a crowd.  I’ll see it next week or sometime shortly after that!

Mike Myers on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert regarding many topics including his role in “Bohemian Rhapsody”

 

Everybody knew ‘grunge’ had its moment but Marilyn Manson in its place now?  I’ve heard a few songs of his, they’re not what you might think they might sound like.  They were album tracks & they were mostly orchestral music.

Dream Theater is releasing their 14th album in February!  Great, the 34 song double album “The Astonishing” was far from what I/fans expected & knew they could do better!

I like “Slipknot”, I’ve got their albums.  I’ve never been anxious for any album of theirs to be released until now!

Ah yes, “I’m going to sue you because my husband took too many of the pills you prescribed him”.  I miss Chris Cornell & Soundgarden too, but the doctor didn’t shove the pills down his throat, or was he on tour with Soundgarden?

COUNTING CROWS

I own 2 of their albums that I bought on CD in the 1990s.  I actually bought 5 studio albums & a double album of them live.  I’m good with only the first 2 studio albums though.  I really don’t know about this band so here’s what http://www.google.com tells me.  They formed in Berkley, California in 1991.  Their first big album was released in 1993 & their 2nd album was released in 1996.  When I got their 2nd album that was all I listened to for 2-3 weeks.  Their most recent studio album was released in 2014.

1996     RECOVERING THE SATELLITES

CONCERT UPDATE   FOO FIGHTERS with THE STRUTS

Yes, I was in Calgary with my dad to see Foo Fighters with The Struts opening for them.  This was my 5th time seeing Foo Fighters live.  2000, 2003, 2011, 2015, & now 2018.  I had just got “The Colour & the Shape” in 1998 or late 1997, so I didn’t go to Edgefest 1998.  Edgefest was a one day long touring festival of rock bands that went across Canada.  I went to the last touring Edgefest in 1999.  Saw Foo Fighters in 2000 at a similar festival organized by Our Lady Peace called “Summersault”.  This concert in 2018 was how I found out about ‘The Struts’.  I heard they were opening for Foo Fighters on this tour.  The Struts 2nd album will be available on iTunes & elsewhere on Friday, October 26th.  They remind me of Queen without the operatic parts.

We drove to Calgary on Monday, had Western Pizza for supper that evening, concert was Tuesday night.  We drove home Wednesday, mom wasn’t feeling very good, I took her ticket to see comedian Craig Ferguson at the Casino.  We basically stopped at my parents’ place place for a washroom break & left for the Casino.

Since the concert was postponed, ‘The Struts’ didn’t open & weren’t even there.  I was really looking forward to seeing them.  Well at least I got to see “Foo Fighters” for the 5th time in my life!  2000, 2003, 2011, 2015, & now 2018.  Kim & I had tickets to see them in 2008 in Saskatoon, but somebody got brain cancer & couldn’t go to the show.  My parents went to that show instead.

Dad’s ticket was his Christmas present for 2017.  We were in line for the doors to open at 6:00 pm.  Went in got our T-Shirts, some soft ice cream, & found our seats.  Exact same seats we had earlier this year for “Queens of the Stone Age”.  This was the last show of the tour, you could tell they were tired & rightfully so.  They played for 2 hours & 50 minutes roughly, they do that every show.  They played a minimum of at least one song from their 9 studio albums, a ‘Queen’ cover, ‘The Ramones’, Alice Cooper’, ‘Tom Petty’, & a mashup of the piano part of John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ with the vocals of ‘Van Halen’s’ ‘Jump’.  It fits really well actually.  So 4 songs ASAP from the new album, and one song each from the previous 4 albums, 2 from “One by One”, 2 from “There is Nothing Left to Lose”, 3 from “The Colour & The Shape”, & one from their debut album.

The sound was poor at best.  Everything was too loud & the vocals were buried in the mix.  Everything was loud & distorted.  The opening band was a 3 piece band from the U.K. called ‘The Joy Formidable’, big letdown for me since I was really excited to see “The Struts”.  I guess I saved $30 since there were no ‘Struts’ T-Shirts.  Here’s a sample of what we heard from “Foo Fighters”……

LANGUAGE IN 2 OF THESE LINKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

This is with the singer of “The Struts”, in Calgary Dave Grohl played drums & sang while Taylor Hawkins went out front to sing his part.

Of course the show ended with “Everlong” as usual

 

Here’s a few songs by “The Struts”.  They remind me of “Queen” without the operatic parts….

 

From the new album out tomorrow.

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.

“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’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”

WEEKLY EXERCISE TOTAL/CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL

The www.youtube.com links are there for a point of reference if you don’t know what I’m talking about.

No such thing as a stupid question!  Ask me & I’ll try to break it down for you!

4 day exercise total; 400 pushups, 300 tricep pushups, 200 back flexes, 240 squats, 400 leg lifts, 200 crunches.

I fell asleep to “Coheed & Cambria” the album “The Unheavenly Creatures”

I exercised to “Foo Fighters” the album “Wasting Light”

 

 

The thing I forget to do is stretch before my exercises.  I’ll start doing my exercise, then stop everything & stretch.  That’s a regular part of my routine, unfortunately walking isn’t.  If I had kept up with my walking, using a walker on my own wouldn’t be out of the question right now, I think?

Once I’m done my exercises on Fridays, my work week is over.  I work 1 ½ hour ASAP.  I’ll do some stuff around the house, I’ll make sure Brewster’s bowls are full, have my breakfast, shower, then hit the couch, sometimes with a coffee or usually with a full liter of water.

Fridays & Saturdays or special occasions are the only evenings I have alcohol.  2 or 3 on each evening.  The sugar in the alcohol usually makes me get up quite early.  The last time I had a hangover would have been before I got sick, 2007 or early in January of 2008.

 

What kind of world is this???  I don’t care if you’re a democrat, republican, white, black, brown, gay, transgender, straight, male, female, etc.  Are you a respectful human?  If so the USA could use your help in the White House.  Things are getting spooky south of us.

We certainly don’t need more guns in the world, but if you own a 3D printer & look on the dark web, I hear you can create one.  At this point the USA needs to ban semi-automatic guns & now 3D printers.  Thanks technology for creating printable guns, drones & robots or sex robots that I hear you can set to kill you, etc.  Anybody else think technology has gone too far now?

 

Well, Making a Murderer, wasn’t on Netflix last Friday.  I hear it’s coming on Friday, October 19th, according to Netflix.

https://www.rollingstone.com/tv/tv-news/making-a-murderer-steven-avery-netflix-season-two-trailer-735074/

 

So Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath is amazed that Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones is still alive.  Goes to show that just because you listen/play metal music doesn’t mean you’re an addict.  Hahahahaha!  Metallica & Dave Mustaine of Megadeth & Lamb of God are all sober too.

Guess who’s playing drums & singing?  I’ll give you a hint, it rhymes with rave roll!  Good luck finding this album.  I bought it on CD the day it came out, it’s now out of print & not on any digital music service.

 

Ah, crap!  Just when you think “Lethal Weapon” is in the clear this happens!

 

New video from “Halestorm”

 

Reminder for November 2nd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

This is beyond weird.  How does a rap group take home “Best pop/rock duo”?

What does Corey Taylor (vocalist for Slipknot & Stone Sour) think about the music industry, regarding rock & metal music?

 

800,000,000 iTunes users vs. 50,000,000 Apple Music users.  That calms me down a bit.

“Live” has a 5 song EP out today called “Local 717”.  All of the original members back together, & it sounds much better, more like the album “Secret Samadhi”

 

CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL

I only own one greatest hits album of theirs on CD, which are now packed up in boxes.  If it’s an older band I’m good with only a greatest hits album.  I do own all of the “Led Zeppelin”, “The Beatles”, “Pink Floyd”, “Rush”, “The Beastie Boys”, and more.  Anyways here are a few songs….
