Well that was a bust!  The sedative did nothing for me at my MRI appointment. I think it was a placebo?  Either way I didn’t really need it.  This MRI machine was much bigger than the one at the hospital, & they were looking at my lower back, not my brain & entire spine.  We saw the MRI, I have a bulging disc, and I’ve had it since high school.  I’m guessing I have some options.  A) More physiotherapy B) More messages & chiropractor visits C) Surgery

Kim just assumes it will be surgery & then got really worried about me aka she started crying.  I held her & told her not to worry about me, I don’t like seeing her so worried, and we don’t even know what the doctors will say.  The only thing we’re pretty sure about is no cortisone shot.  They can do more damage to the bone structure than good.  Kim, don’t worry whatever the doctors decide, we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.

That was our Friday night!  No more wild parties here, we’s old!

Saturday was very lazy.  We did nothing, didn’t even breakup with Janis!  We watched the Blue Jays lose……..again.  We also rented “Christmas Office Party” hilarious R rated comedy!

 

Today, I’ll be watching the Toronto Blue Jays hopefully win their 2nd game so their record looks a bit better instead of the current 1W-4L.  We can all just pretend there is no problem in LF & 1B, we’ll pretend they’ll make it to the playoffs in Sept-Oct??????

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you.  Slow/Quiet week.  Stretching everyday & many routine appointments to come by the end of July.

 

Instead of Stone Sour giving us photos from the studio from months ago with the album title.  How about a release date for the album Hydrograd?

Mr. Todd Bryanton.  Did I mention he’s a really good guy too!

This looks like a good movie!

 

Everything The Watchmen do musically is AWESOME!!!  Their new live album of 21 songs is FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!

Albums on the way Linkin Park, Queens of the Stone Age, Royal Blood those are almost set in stone that they’ll be released, & of course Stone Sour.

 

Movies I would like to see this year.

Friday, we went to see the movie “Sausage Party” it was good, I enjoyed it. The first R rated CGI/cartoon movie made. I liked it but I don’t need to see it again, once is enough for me. NOT FOR KIDS, LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!

Saturday, watched the Blue Jays win, 4-2, in the afternoon on TV at home. Watched the home town Saskatchewan Roughriders lose……………………again 19-10. I can’t have any fluid since the washrooms are nowhere close to us, the sun is beating down on us the entire time, Kim pays close to $700 a year so I can be there to watch them lose. Since winning the Championship in 2013 the home town Saskatchewan Roughriders have a win-loss record of 14W-29L. It’s a bit financially straining on us now, a $300 increase for next year in the new stadium I think will be a one year thing hopefully in a handicap seat. 12 stairs up & 12 stairs down is not easy for me. Dad & I get there an hour before the game to watch the warm up & not slow down others as they get to the stadium, & we wait about 30 minutes after the game so we don’t slow anyone down on the way out.

Today it’s laundry, groceries & Blue Jay baseball is done for the weekend. The Blue Jays scored 9 runs in a win today, the Riders scored 10 points in a loss yesterday.

Kevin Smith & his 17 year old daughter, Harley Quinn, loved “Suicide Squad”. I love Kevin Smith movies so from him & the fact he’s comic fan who named his daughter after a Batman villain. I’ll Just purchase the blu-ray! I’d show you the video of his review but it’s not appropriate unless you’re a fan of his. Apparently there will be a follow up, stand alone, Harley Quinn movie.

Nothing like squeezing blood from a stone. Most people really don’t care about reissue or remastered albums.

Alice Cooper’s take on everything in one article!

Alex Rodriguez’ last day, Friday, as an MLB player! Article regarding him. He used steroids, got caught, used them again, lied, got caught & continued to lie about it. His statistics would easily put him in the Hall of Fame, but he cheated & will likely never be on the ballot. I think Ty Cobb is in it, but he was accused of murder. They need to reevaluate who’s in there? I have no sympathy for athletes that cheat! He’s currently, has been for quite some time now, the most hated player in the game! Once he got to NY, he’s been known to keep a distance from teammates. On Thursday all of a sudden he has had nothing but praise from teammates & other players?

Clear as mud? I will forever speak of him as A-Roid not A-Rod!

The Agonist shared it……

Video interview with singer, Myles Kennedy, of Alter Bridge. He decided to become a singer since he couldn’t find one? If you ask me, he’s my favourite singer!

EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL

I fell asleep to “Stitched Up Heart” the debut album/only album “Never Alone”, then “Stone Sour” about 1/3 of the album “Audio Secrecy” then the entire album “Come What(ever) May”

I exercised to “Bob Geldof” ½ of the album “Deep in the Heart of Nowhere”, then “U2” the entire album “Rattle & Hum”

8:07am & I’m done my workout that started at 6:30 am! I’m really tired, better than yesterday, but pretty tired!

This is for anyone & everyone who might find this interesting! Please help me out if you don’t mind? Please do what you can to spread the word?

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

Weekly total; 7500 crunches, 700 leg lifts, 310 push ups, 260 squats. Squats were the exercise that I had to slowly increase throughout the week.

80 squats, 1500 crunches, 140 leg lifts & 60 push ups everyday, 5 days a week. Got there with the Thursday exercises. Took longer than usual but I got there Thursday & Friday.

I should be careful! I tend to smack the back of my head while doing my crunches, that yoga mat I’ve been using for the last 3 months is very thin compared to the puzzle pieces I was using before! I’ve had a brain injury before & I survived, I’ll be OK, & more cautious!

The further away from December 31st, 2008, when I was declared cancer free by the doctors, the entire thing seems very insignificant. Sure, I’m in a wheelchair & somethings are difficult or impossible to do, I either have to figure out how to do it. Or just not think about it since it’s not something any physically disabled person can do. Here’s an example- I really liked hiking in Banff in 2000 or 2001 with Rob. Until/if I can walk, I don’t need to think about that. I need to focus on my exercises so I can eventually think about going hiking. At this point, I can do more things, than I can’t or at least it’s pretty even.

KONGOS track tales

Are “Guns n’ Roses” really considered as a “Hard Rock” band? When did that happen? I missed the memo?

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/features/skrillex-talks-polarizing-guns-n-roses-opening-gig-w433878 LANGUAGE!!!!!!!

If an opening act had anything to do with Rage Against The Machine, I’d be very satisfied.

This summer the kids are alright!

“Prophets of Rage” play surprise show outside of a California prison

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/prophets-of-rage-play-surprise-set-outside-california-prison-w434071

I should probably clarify “The Tragically Hip” news. They’re not playing in Regina. The restaurant/bar will be airing the final show on CBC. I believe the show itself will be broadcast throughout Canada on CBC. It will be their final show as the singer, Gord Downie, has terminal brain cancer. Sad way to end a career.

I guess if I’m going to call “Batman vs. Superman” one of the best comic book I should add 2 others to that list. “Deadpool” & “Captain America:The Civil War”. All 3 are very different movies. “Batman vs. Superman” is very dark, Batman drops a couple of F-Bombs in the Ultimate Edition, he’s that angry. “Deadpool” is quite raunchy. Imagine if Kevin Smith wrote an action movie, I think that describes it best. “Captain America:The Civil War” is probably the best Avengers movie thus far. Better off NOT FOR KIDS! LANGUAGE POSSIBLY OR OFFENSIVE LANGUAGE!!!!!

5 things learned from the “Rogue One”, Star Wars spinoff, trailer

Metallica released “The Black” album 25 years ago. We played 2 songs from this album at Beerfest in 2002. I called it old Metallica then some jerk tried to fight me because it wasn’t old Metallica? It was 11 years old at the time?
