I fell asleep to “Nothing but Thieves” the 2nd album “Broken Machine.”   Kim even likes some of their stuff!  We were in the car the other day & she says “Hey play that ‘Sorry’ song”

I exercised to “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “Villains”

 

You’re probably tired of hearing people talk about the mass shooting in Vegas last weekend.  Howie Mandel was a guest on The Ellen Degeneres Show on Tuesday.  They both talked about many issues in the world, saying that we all need to respect & help each other, not just in the face of tragedy, but as much as possible, which makes a whole lot of sense when you think about it.  Be proactive instead of being reactive.  Look at what has happened in the last 2 weeks!  3 terrible hurricanes & a mass shooting.  Yes, we were reactive & donated to the Red Cross.  Kim donated through work, they will match every dollar by 50 cents.  Got me thinking if I could, I’d always think of donating blood like I used to.  Now, after cancer I’m not allowed to donate blood or donate my organs.

I always say to myself “Hope for the best & prepare for the worst!”  Somewhere along the way I forgot that.  The hurricanes & mass shooting were/are HUGE catastrophes that most people wouldn’t expect or necessarily think of.  That’s sort of a good thing.  You don’t want to live your life in fear!  Howie Mandel spoke very well as a guest discussing the shooting.  To sum it up he basically said ‘We need to stop talking about gun control & maybe focus on mental health issues more.’  If you like to go hunting, I’m OK with that, as long as you’re not hunting humans or domestic animals.  We have guns in Canada, few people use them to kill others though.  Canada’s not perfect, however there’s not a breaking news story every week on TV.

What Howie Mandel said was needed, it’s time to change our perspective on these mass shootings.  We all keep barking up the same tree, & we always get the same answer, & it’s not helping to solve the problem.

I found it!  Here’s Howie Mandel’s view on these mass shootings

Last night was our “niece’s” 4th birthday good times had by all!  BBQ ribs & chicken wings, fruit tray, veggie tray, pierogi’s, etc.  Then dessert ice cream & fancy toppings.  After the baking on the weekend & ice cream last night, I should be good for my sugar intake for a while, & here comes Canadian Thanksgiving!

 

THAT’S ALL FOR WHAT’S ON MY MIND & CANCER TALK!  HERE COMES THE POPCULTURE STUFF! 

 

The more I listen to the Foo Fighters “Concrete & Gold” album, the more I like it.  I just don’t care for the last song on it, “Concrete & Gold” the rest is quite good!

 

ROYAL BLOOD

“Royal Blood” is not a metal band!  They’re a rock act made of 2 guys from England.  A bassist who sings, & a drummer who I assume sings background vocals.  I got to see them open for Foo Fighters in 2015 in Calgary for the “Sonic Highways” tour.  This album cycle they are opening for “Queens of the Stone Age”.

Before seeing them open for Foo Fighters, I never thought I’d get to see them live.  I’m so glad I did.  They released their 2nd album earlier this year. Titled “How did we get so dark?”  The first album I really like, & the 2nd album keeps the train moving in the right direction!  I still think this first video from the new album is really cool!

There’s 3 of the 10 songs from the new album.  Here’s a couple from the first album.

LANGUAGE I DON’T HEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Going about my day on Monday as usual.  Then I caught my eye on the news of Tom Petty passing away at a young age of 66.  First the mass shooting in Vegas & now this.  Trying to think of which Tom Petty song is my favourite.  I couldn’t choose one, they’re all AWESOME!

This all came out of nowhere for me.  Here’s Rolling Stone with Tom Petty’s top 10 live songs.

I got up when Kim got in the shower to get ready for work on Friday.  7:00 am, checked Brewster’s bowls & got straight to exercising, came in here & posted my blog.  Had breakfast, showered, & messed around with an iTunes issue.  Early baseball game at 10:30 am.  I always record it just in case.  I was about an hour behind.  I record every game so that I can start late & fast forward through the commercials.  Blue Jays lost……………again.  The Saskatchewan Roughriders won by 1 point in Ottawa that night.  Kim’s parents drove into town late Friday afternoon.

Saturday, Kim, Sherry, & my mother-in-law were baking goodies for Kim’s bake sale.  I woke up late & watched the Blue Jays lose the 2nd last game of the season.  162 games in a season, one more on Sunday.  All of the broadcasters for Sportsnet say at the start of the season “It’s early…” & don’t know when to stop.  New rule!  After the first 2 games it’s not early anymore!  Half of all of the players in the MLB play winter ball in Mexico or some other warm location, then have spring training for a month & a ½, then the regular season starts, that’s a TON of baseball.  After 2 regular season games it’s NOT early!

 

I try so hard to avoid anything to do with Donnie J. Trump, but he’s EVERYWHERE & I’m in the middle of nowhere in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada!

Well Trump’s not happy, as usual.  He’s mad that NFL players are taking a knee during the national anthem.  He also says the game is ruined because people hit too hard.  He’s gonna feel worse if they change it to flag football, which is currently being discussed for the NFL & CFL.

Gosh, I wonder why they’re taking a knee?  I hear the crowd is doing that in some cities as well!  All of this being said I agree with the sports talk show I watch, mostly.  I know where the teams are from that I’m watching.  The anthem(s) could maybe just be played at the first home game for the teams & at the start & final game of the playoffs, I would think that should suffice?

I’ll admit that I’m racist.  Men with an orange complexion & a terrible looking blonde toupee are not to my liking.

If China wants anything Trump, he’s past due to move!

 

IF YOU’RE HERE FOR THE UPDATE, THAT’S ALL THAT I HAVE FOR YOU TODAY.

 

QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE

 

I’d never heard of them until their 3rd album “Songs for the Deaf”.  I got into them since Dave Grohl played drums on that album as well as their 6th album “…Like Clockwork”.  Dave Grohl even toured with them for a bit after the 3rd album.  This is the tune that made me a fan of QOTSA.

They now have recently released their 7th studio album, titled “Villains”.  An album that just makes you feel like dancing.  The album was produced by Mark Ronson, who gave you this tune….

So here are the first few songs from the album “Villains” by “Queens of the Stone Age…

Skip ahead to 1:40 & the song will begin after a long unnecessary intro.

Their previous album was very slow & full of piano/keyboard.  Also a really good album!  If you’re a fan of Foo Fighters or a fan of the stoner metal group “Kyuss” you’ve likely heard of them.

 

Metal is trendy?  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  BECAUSE IT IS FLAT OUT STUPID!

“Who do you listen to?”  “What’s your 2nd or 1st favourite album of theirs?”  In the end it’s not that big of a deal to me.  Are you comfortable?  If you are, great.  I don’t think a metal shirt will make many new friends?  Maybe try a country music shirt?

Kim told me last night that she had today off, so I didn’t work out today.

I fell asleep to “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “Villains” followed by “Foo Fighters” the album “Concrete & Gold”

This song^^ is just completely sugar coated in reverb on the album.

400 crunches, 400 leg lifts, 160 back flexes, 20 minutes of planking, & 400 pushups.  Each morning starts with filling Brewster’s dishes.  100 crunches, 100 leg lifts, 40 back flexes, 5 minutes of planking (rest periods not included), & 100 pushups.  Then I lay on the floor, roll over in complete exhaustion, trying to catch my breath & carry on with my day.

Some people think I sit around all day laying on the couch watching TV, Movies, or listening to music.  If I’m lucky, that happens about twice a month, after my exercises or on the odd occasion that I don’t sleep well.

Unless I’m sick, there is always exercise going on & something to get to, that I normally wouldn’t have time to get to.  Remember, it’s not just me that has to be happy, it’s Kim’s place too.  Yes, Brewster is happy too.  Rough life for a dog.

On Wednesday, I spent far too much time working on the problem with my iPod.  All of my art work disappeared.  I still have an iPod Classic 160 gigabytes I got while in my rehabilitation in early 2012.

I do what I can.  Some cleaning, started cooking (on the stove top), I always handle the dishes, etc.  For some reason we went with a fancy stove that has buttons instead of dials.  I get very confused with which burner I’m turning on, or if I’m turning on the oven?

I fell asleep to “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “Songs for the Deaf” followed by the album “Villains”

I exercised to “Kyuss” the album “Blues for the Red Sun”.  I’ll tell you a bit about Kyuss later on below.

400 crunches, 400 leg lifts, 400 pushups, 160 back flexes, & 20 minutes of planking.

I’m not a fan of talking about cancer, simply because I don’t want to be known as “That guy who had cancer”.  There is far more to me than just a cancer survivor.  Problem is, I could have the effects of cancer for the rest of my life.  My iPatch and a wheelchair.  I’m over that stuff, if people stare, I can’t stop them.  If someone has a question, I’ll answer as best I can.  It may never go away, & people may reference me as “That guy in the wheelchair with the iPatch”.  Oh, well………..I’m not about to throw in the towel & give up/call it a day.  Look at it this way, at least I’m well enough to try & change things.

When you turned/turn 28 did/do you just assume you’ll get stage 4 brain cancer?  I didn’t, but 6 days after my 28th birthday I did.  Best I can say is live your life to the fullest & enjoy as much of it as you can!  Don’t worry about what others think, & don’t be the person that has everyone looking over their shoulder praying they don’t see you.  Have fun & help others have fun too.

Coming September 15th

 

 

Kyuss are a desert American underground metal band.  Josh Homme, singer & guitar player for Queens of the Stone Age played guitar in Kyuss & former Queens of the Stone Age bass player Nick Oliveri was in Kyuss too.  Do you remember the song “Outside” from Foo Fighters’ “Sonic Highways” album?  That song is based on Kyuss who played outside in the desert because they were too loud for their neighbors.

 

Has “Trivium” finally found a permanent drummer while recording their 7th release?

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

Come on Trivium haters, they’re not about to release Ascendancy again!  Why would they?  They already made Ascendancy & released it in 2005.

 

I like some metal & know others that listen to far more metal than me.  There are NO Nazis in sight. Going to a metal or rock show actually calms me.  I’m in a group of people that are always willing to help someone out when needed.  That’s a large group where I feel safest.  I broke my nose at a festival in 1999, my nose was pouring blood.  Everyone cleared a path for me to a security person who sent me to the First Aid tent.

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

 

This makes it 3/11 recorded songs from Foo Fighters’ album “Concrete & Gold” album out September 15th

WOW!  Dave Grohl reveals secret HUGE pop star on “Concrete & Gold”

So the new Foo Fighters album will have Paul McCartney on drums for one song, Justin Timberlake, & on the album closer 30 vocal tracks by Shawn Stockman (Boys to Men) to give the effect of a choir.

Friday August 25th we went to my parents’ house.  Mom’s birthday, we ordered Chinese food & watched the Roughriders vs. the Eskimos in Edmonton on dad’s 92” HD projector in the basement.  Yes, I fell in the kitchen getting out of my wheelchair.  Not the first time & likely not the last time that I’ll fall.  I’m fine, no big deal, so far, it happens.

Saturday August 26, Kim had a work BBQ to attend, I stayed behind to watch Brewster.  We watched “Deadpool” for the 14th time, & I’m not exaggerating that number.

Sunday was a lot of cleaning & laundry going on here.

Monday August 28, had some friends from out of town over.  Some in Regina for Guns n’ Roses, some who were just here for the summer break for university.

Tuesday night I was off to a metal show.  Saw ‘The Agonist’ from Montreal, Quebec.  Female fronted band with 5 albums to their name.  Not very many people there since it was a Tuesday.  Thanks to my younger but bigger brother for taking me.

 

Wednesday we went to have coffee & lunch with my mom.  They also had a few of my movies they were done with.

 

Thursday I slept in, like really slept in.  By the time I had showered & got dressed it was just after 11:00 am.  Mostly a free day here.  Hello couch!  I was flipping around the channels & saw that “Much Retro” was on, saw these two fossil fuel 1980s hits & changed the channel.  Too much retro, too retro.

 

Friday we went out for lunch & went to the mall, (I needed new undies, and no I did not poop in any of my retired undies).  Looked at some other stores.  Long time since I had been in an album store!  Tons of vinyl & ridiculously cheap CDs.  If I knew how to transfer vinyl to digital for my iPod & had room/money for a vinyl collection, I’d seriously consider buying vinyl albums.  The day ended doing a few things around the house, then to the couch.  Watched a bit of stuff on our DVR and flipped to the Blue Jays game, which I thought would be a blow out in favour of Baltimore.  Only 1 run in 13 innings for Baltimore who won the game 1-0.  The Blue Jays aren’t mathematically out of a playoff spot, but anyone watching the games or even score board watching knows they’re out of it.  Unless they win the final 27 games of the season (from September 2nd on) & rely on other teams to lose 10 games or more.

 

Saturday afternoon we went to Sherry & James’.  Our friend Gerry was in town.  He lives in Saskatoon & worked in the same office as Sherry.  He’s originally from Labrador & yes, he has the Newfoundland accent.

 

Sunday was the Labour Day classic in Regina.  Saskatchewan Roughriders vs. Winnipeg Blue Bombers.  Next week the Roughriders are Winnipeg for the “Banjo Bowl”.  Riders won the Labour Day classic, & I think they have a good shot at winning the banjo bowl as well.  Nolan had a great way of looking at it.  The Riders have been winning the last 3 games by a large margin, Winnipeg has been winning by a few points.  We’ll see what happens I guess.

 

I have a very strange sunburn from the game.  Left arm, left side of each leg, & a V-neck burn from my jersey, mostly on the left side of my neck.  Why is this an odd burn?  The sun was right in front of us, & I had 2 people to my left.

 

Here it is, Labour Day Monday.  Kim’s doing laundry, I’ll be making a juice for the week, etc.  Like the end of most weekends, we’re just getting ready for the 4 day week ahead.

 

IF YOU’RE HERE FOR THE UPDATE, THAT’S ALL THAT I HAVE FOR YOU TODAY.

 

Since the Guns n’ Roses show was here on Sunday, August 27th, I highly recommend “Diemonds” to any & all GNR fans.  I’m not a GNR fan & even I like “Diemonds”

 

As of Tuesday, I’ve listened to Queens of the Stone Age too many times (20) since late Thursday night!

Go to 1:30 and the song should start in a few seconds.  All you’re missing is a long opening of echoes & reverb

https://allthatshreds.com/mark-tremonti-discusses-alter-bridges-new-cd-live-o2-new-tremonti-album-due-next-summer/

 

I never shared any videos since they were all silent videos at the time.  Prince didn’t want to have his music free on the internet.  I don’t listen to him all of the time, but I’ll listen to him 4 or 5 times a year.

 

I’m still listening to Queens of the Stone Age, just not as much.

I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “Silence in the Snow” followed by “Muse” the album “Black Holes & Revelations”

I exercised to “Econoline Crush” 3 albums on shuffle.

400 crunches, 400 leg lifts, 390 pushups, 160 back flexes, & 20 minutes of planking.

That’s 100 crunches, 100 leg lifts, now 100 pushups, 40 back flexes, & 5 minutes of planking each working day.

I did 90 pushups on Monday, then figured I could suffer through 10 more the rest of the week.  I’d increase my crunches to 700-1000 but not until I’ve had back surgery.  At that point I’d throw my squats back into the routine as well.

My back is fine at the moment, it does flare up once in a while though.  I’ve had this issue since ’96 or ’97 in high school!

I can’t even imagine how people in my life felt when they heard the news that I had been diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer.

Even now people ask if they can help me with something.  I get that, a guy who is physically disabled will say “Yes please” on most occasions.  I on the other hand try to figure out how to do things on my own.  It may take me longer or after a few tries & if I can’t figure it out, I’ll accept any help.

I know at times I can be stubborn about asking for help, that’s my pride taking over.  I like the challenge of trying to be more independent.  When I figure something out, that’s one less thing people don’t have to worry about me doing on my own.

I really don’t want others to worry about me.  If I need help with something I will ask.  Please don’t worry about me?  Hold my beer & watch this!

We have this upcoming week off.  Tuesday evening I made a list of our commitments for the week here.  Our week off became very busy, in a good way though.  Lots of people (7?) from out of town will be here to see us & partake in other festivities!

I’ll be checking Facebook & email, just no blog posts until Monday, September 4th.

They’re an independent band from Calgary, Alberta, Canada.  https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/blood-red-tape/id292933756

I’m here as much as I need a break from this thing!  I’ve upped my sets of pushups & I’m “exhausted”, & I still have stuff to do around the house.  Other than Mondays, I get excited & think to myself “Yay, it’s Friday!!!!!”  Then I snap back to reality & think “Ah, fudge sickle it’s Tuesday”.  Each day is a little more difficult than the day before & by Friday, I’m living on coffee.  Even on Monday I was tired, the only reason I got up was because I had to pee, or else I would have stayed in bed.

I look forward to the weekend as much as most people do.  I may not work a 40 hour work week.  Between exercise & stuff around the house, I keep myself pretty busy.  When Friday comes around I’m relieved that it’s the weekend.

 

THAT’S ALL FOR WHAT’S ON MY MIND & CANCER TALK!  HERE COMES THE POPCULTURE STUFF! 

Not much in the pop-culture news.  Some orange guy is hoarding ALL of the news.

 

Foo Fighters & Rick Astley?  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!  AUDIO/VIDEO IN THE LINK

https://consequenceofsound.net/2017/08/foo-fighters-perform-never-gonna-give-up-with-rick-astley-in-japan-watch/?wasp=facebook-ads

Does this mean that Rick Astley is the surprise guest on the new Foo Fighters album?  One is Paul McCartney drumming on a song but they’re not letting anyone know who the second guest is?

At Fenway Park they always sing “Sweet Caroline” during the 7th inning stretch.  This is the best version I’ve seen!

 

I can’t wait for the new ‘Queens of the Stone Age’ album “Villains” on Friday.  I don’t sleep a ton.  I’ll see if iTunes has fixed the mistake on their end & grab it Thursday evening.  I preordered it on iTunes, but the second single didn’t come through for me.  I called the iTunes support line, they told me they had never seen that problem before?  Friday, I might be on the phone all day?

The album was produced by Mark Ronson.  The same guy that produced this little hit song.

 

Movies I’d like to see…

 

WOWY!!!!!!!!

But is it real?  Multiple re-writes & directors.  If it is real, get ready for the world to tell you how bad it was.  Like Batman vs. Superman, or Nickelback, everybody talks about how awful the movie or music is but both have made millions of dollars.  So who’s spending money on them?  I love Batman vs. Superman, & they have my money.  I have watched that movie at least 15 times!
