Yep, Friday night watching baseball on the couch in a +26 Celcius home.  Before watching the game, we we’re out running some errands, I was trying to avoid being here.  I can’t stand the heat.  In the winter we aren’t allowed to turn on the air.  Our windows all face south though.  Even with the blinds closed +25 Celcius is quite common.  I wait for the summer to blast the air & keep the house at +22, even though it’s too hot to have bare feet on our balcony.  We don’t have a furnace, it’s water heat, a boiler & forced air for the A/C.  The cooler is on the roof & the blower is in our laundry room.

I think the A/C has a mind of it’s own?  It’s Saturday morning, tried turning the A/C on & it works!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Must be the weather.  I’ve heard a fair bit of thunder the last few days & my parents have lost power from time to time, I don’t know what the deal is?

To finish off Saturday, Kim ran a 5km run with a couple of friends.  I stayed home with Brewster, bad anxiety problems, & the run was very early in the morning.  Kim picked us up, we dropped Brewster off at my parents & met our friends for lunch, grabbed some beer at Willow Park, fancy beer, strawberry beer one bottle is enough since it’s so sweet.  We came home & we were exhausted, had a snooze.  Me on the couch & Kim on the love seat.  Woke up, had supper, & watched some “Modern Family”.

Sundays are our get ready for the week.  Kim will get some groceries, I’ll cook some fish for my lunches, make a pitcher of juice of blended fruit & vegetables, & Kim likely has some laundry to get to.

 

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

 

I think Trump is constantly pushing everyone he can, just so he can make the rules to push everyone away.  After I posted the Friday blog, I watched CNN for a bit.  He’s pulled the USA out of Paris’ climate deal.

Many of you probably didn’t see the press briefing Friday morning.  The press asked 3 different times if Trump believed in climate change.  After 3 separate individuals asked & all received the same political answer it was as clear as mud.  Whoever that was, it’s a simple yes or no question.  I would ask “Does the President believe in climate change?  Please reply with a yes or no answer.”  If he just responds with the same political garbage answer, I’d let it rest.

How did Trump see the photo Kathy Griffin posted of his severed head?  Doesn’t Trump call CNN “fake news”?  Did Kathy Griffin act alone?  Who took the picture?  Was it on social media or on TV?  How did everyone see it?

I’m guessing former FBI leader Comey is a moving target until he takes the stand during the trial on Thursday.  I’d hate to be in his shoes right now, constantly looking over his shoulder.

No, it’s just metal.  Sub-genres are just a lot of ballyhoo & non-sense to me, thrash, death, melodic death, power, grind core, progressive, etc.  It’s metal you like some of it or not.  Have you ever heard anyone say “Progressive Soft Rock?”

I fell asleep to “System of a Down” the album “Steal This Album”

I exercised to “Foo Fighters” the album “In Your Honor” the rock album of the double album.

Busy morning CT scan at 9:30, I can’t eat until after the scan so Kim & I went for brunch after.  Went to Sportchek where Kim got me 2 pairs of shorts & new shoes/sneakers.  Everything was on sale & I found good shoes on the clearance shelf.  Then we got Brewster from my parents’ house.  The scan is just my routine scan before I see my Cancer Clinic doctor later on in the summer whenever that is?  We’ll call the shorts & shoes my anniversary gift.  Our 12th anniversary is on Sunday!

Exercise total for the week; 500 crunches, 250 leg lifts, 100 pushups.  So currently that’s; 100 crunches, 50 leg lifts, & 20 pushups a day.  I’ll up the numbers slowly to 1000 crunches every other day, then planking on the next day instead, 100 leg lifts, & hopefully 100 pushups a day.  No squats at least until I meet with the surgeon or after the surgery if I can get it.

I’ve been doing my exercise first thing in the morning all week, except on Monday when it was a sauna in here.  Sure it takes a while as I will increase the numbers.  I have the time though, more time than anyone with an 8 hour job 5 days a week, &/or kids to keep track of.

From Tuesday, February 5th 2008 – Thursday, July 26th 2012.  I missed EVERYTHING!  Not all that bad though.  All that mattered was me getting better.  Of course I missed everyone, friends & family.  Missing everything is probably why I saturate myself in pop culture?  That’s not real life all of the time though.  I like just hanging out with a small group of friends.  I can’t drive though, so sometimes/most times we invite people here.  Of course I clear it with Kim first.

That was a time when I had to be completely selfish & just focus on getting stronger & healthier.  All of that being said, it really does feel better to give than receive.  Wait……………I guess you all got me………………if you wanted or not.  Hahahahahaha!

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

Immediately after I posted Wednesday’s blog “Paramore” released a 2nd video from their album “After Laughter” out on May 12th.   They even broke ‘Spotify’ for a bit on Wednesday.

 

YAY!  “Nothing but Thieves” have an album coming out in September!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The first album was & is FANTASTIC!  It’s not a metal or hard rock album at all.  More like early Radiohead.

If you ask me, I’ll take their 2nd album, The Bends, over any of their other albums, & their 3rd album, OK Computer, is considered one of the most important alternative albums of all time!

 

Linkin Park announce North American tour.

http://loudwire.com/linkin-park-summer-2017-north-american-dates-machine-gun-kelly/

 

I wouldn’t expect a “Tool” album this year.  Good chance that there will be an “A Perfect Circle” album though.  I heard an interview with Maynard.  He basically said that he sees many road blocks for one band.  I’m guessing it’s Tool?  He didn’t want to name which band it was though.  In a different clip drummer, Danny Carey of Tool, laughed at the thought of a Tool album being released this year.  I hope A Perfect Circle doesn’t release something like the album of cover songs that sound dark & dreary & nothing that resembles the original versions.  Long audio interview!!!!!!!!!!!!

LANGUAGE IN THE INTERVIEW!  SKIP TO 40:00 FOR THE INFO!!!!!!!

LANGUAGE!!!!!  This is about his anger at God after his mother suffered a stroke.

 

Recall on Bombay gin.  Is this a bad thing?  If it’s got double the alcohol it’s like a 2 in 1!  Half a shot is good enough, it will last longer.  Or you’ll down it in two weekends & never drink gin again!

http://www.cbc.ca/news/business/bombay-sapphire-gin-recall-1.4097353

I like gin but I drink Tanqueray, the green bottle!  I can’t remember when the last time was that I had a drink?  Maybe a month ago?

 

Cool a Netflix Marvel character show!

“Hard Times” 19,800,344 times

“Told you so” 2,875,951 times

Is this 5th album going to make them a house hold name?

My doctor called looks like I’ll more than likely have a back operation YAY!  He’s going to call the same surgeon that did my brain surgeries.  I’m not worried about the strong possibility of back surgery, I’m worried about the recovery time.  After the doctor called, Kim teared up, she doesn’t want me to have to deal with something major again.  So I told her “Don’t worry about stuff like this, we don’t know what’s going to happen in the next 10 seconds or what will happen in surgery or after, we’ll deal with whatever when it happens”.  I’m anxious for this back thing to be fixed once & for all, & get back to exercising.  This stretching stuff is getting old.

Kim’s parents came down from the Prince Albert area.  We had Easter with them & Sherry Friday night.  Saturday was my Dad’s birthday.  Kim had a bad chest cold that moved to her sinuses & just continued to get worse as the weekend progressed.  She stayed home Saturday to rest.  She was going to go shopping with her mom & sister & then come to my parents for supper.  She just really wasn’t up to doing anything.  My brother & his girlfriend drove me home, dad picked me up in the afternoon.

Kim ha Thursday & has Monday off.  I’ll see how she feels after supper & we may watch a movie if she’s up to it.

 

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.

Apparently there may also be a new Muse album this year?  Follow up to this album “Drones”.  I wasn’t big on this last album, didn’t have the staying power for me.

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.

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?

http://www.ticketmaster.com/venueartist/189126/707500?c=LNSM__LasVegas_APerfectCircle_fb_ss_040517

 

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”!

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!!!!!!

I fell asleep to “Diemonds” 2/3 albums I own on shuffle “The Bad Pack” & “Never Wanna Die” got up go to the washroom, came back & to “Megadeth” the album “Dystopia”

I exercised to “Blameshift” 2 Eps & a full length album on shuffle, washed dishes to “Ed Sheeran” all 3 albums on shuffle.

I’m dumb!  Largest understatement I’ve made in the last 10 minutes, I’ve been watching CNN.  It took stage 4 brain cancer for me to wake up & start taking care of myself.  The photo of 2 guitar players on stage is of my brother & I.  I’m the guy in a white T-Shirt.  That’s me at my heaviest 265lbs, no I don’t look that heavy, doesn’t mean it’s OK though.  I haven’t weighed myself lately.  I did about 6 months ago & I was 233.  I went into the hospital at 265 & ballooned to probably close to 300?  I’m lighter at 233 than I’ve ever been in my adult life.  The only problem is ALL off my weight went to my stomach.  I have T-Shirts that don’t fit over my stomach.  I may have to have a serious discussion with my stomach.  At least I’ve smartened up & eat healthier now, & 3 drinks are more than enough Friday or Saturday.  Before I was sick it was outrageous!  8 or 9 drinks minimum on Friday & repeat on Saturday.  I really don’t miss those days, I’m a morning person now.  I like to get up & get stuff done!  Then I’ll sit on my butt & relax, & if the Blue Jays are on TV, don’t even pretend that I hear you!  Hahahahahhahaha!

I fell asleep to “Radiohead” the album “The Bends”, followed by “Halestorm” the album “Into the Wild Life”

I exercised to “Blameshift” the album “Secrets”

Don’t feel as though you have to open every link.

When I was going my therapy, my hands/palms would get very sweaty, especially during my Occupational therapy.  When I would do something simple, my hands would shake & sweat terribly.  I didn’t have much strength at all.  I was doing my therapy putting plastic pipes together (more like the idea of using it as legos for fine motor skills).  I never want to drop anything, so my hands started sweating ASAP since I was so nervous.  Physio, occupational, & exercise therapy were all scheduled for 45 minutes to an hour each.  The vast majority of my therapy was 17 hours a week.  My therapists doubled me for quite a while.  It worked though!

They may not be the tremendous numbers they were before, but I could feel it on my abs this morning.  This with my exercise feels normal to me.  The last 4 ½ months just felt like I was absolutely useless, so this is a very welcome change.  I guess it has to do with not being so dependent on others.  Everyone has been really good about taking me to wherever, I just don’t like to be a “burden” to others.

There aren’t even many releases I’m holding out for?  Other than Pentatonix & Linkin Park, I only know for certain that there are a few albums coming from Queens of the Stone Age, Stone Sour & Royal Blood.  “In a galaxy far, far away” someone has a new Tool album?

The other 3 supposed arrivals have no new material out yet!

I hope you all have fun tonight & get home safe!  No drinks for me.  I’m on some powerful muscle relaxants for my annoying nerve.  A few days after I was in the WRC they put on a “happy hour” for the residents.  I went to it.  I’m on multiple pills 3 times a day & I’m not supposed to drink then they turn around & have one of the nurse’s hand out 2 free drinks to anyone?  Holy mixed messages Batman? I don’t remember if I was able to drink anything at the time.  I couldn’t drink anything for quite a while.  My water & food came through IV for a few years.  My IV was full of a liquid called TPN.  I think it was 2010 that I was able to drink through a straw.  Even beer.  You don’t see that “every day”.

Yeah, I saw my chiropractor yesterday.  My dad took me.  I left here before 2:00 pm, then stayed at my parents’ house until after supper.  Kim had a hair appointment & wasn’t going to be home until 8:00pm or so.  Mom sent home some supper for her.

The chiropractor said it moved really well yesterday, & first did a lot of work on my ribs that had moved.  It feels REALLY good now.  He told me to gradually work into a not so demanding exercise & to keep up with my stretches.  So I did today.  Stretches, 100 crunches & 20 pushups.  As far as the leg exercises go, I plan to do them once everything feels 100% better.  Better safe than sorry.

My routine at the moment is slightly wonky, with my nerve being stubborn.  I get up & get ready at 7:00am.  By the time I do that, & pour a cup of coffee it’s near 7:30.  I watch 2 of the 3 late night talk shows I record, then CNN…………….& I laugh about not having a leader who thinks he can do whatever he wants.  I think I see Sean Spicer flapping his lips, trying to spin a quote from Trump, more often than I see Kim?  I can just imagine how he feels when his alarm goes off.  “Ah, what am I gonna have to spin today.  Wait I’ll check twitter”

The “Radiohead” album “OK Computer” is & always has been considered one of the most important albums of all time.  The really cool thing was they wrote it while on tour for the album “The Bends” in the late 1990s & Foo Fighters were opening for them.  Foo Fighters would do a 10:00 minute sound check, then Radiohead would do a 2 hour sound check arguing about how to arrange the songs.  Go to 15:12 in the video to hear FF drummer Taylor Hawkins talk about opening for Supergrass & Radiohead way back when.

LANGUAGE^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, I have Supergrass’ greatest hits album, on CD.

Expected/anticipated hard rock & metal releases for 2017.  A lot of I don’t know, I don’t really care, I don’t think so, a few I can’t wait, & if there’s a new A Perfect Circle being released, we can wait even longer for the next Tool release.  Maynard probably won’t sing on 2 different albums then he’s supposed to tour with A Perfect Circle.  All of this while maintaining a vineyard?
