I fell asleep to “I Mother Earth” the album “The Quicksilver Meat Dream”, followed by “Ed Sheeran” the album “Divide”

Just a lot of stretching this week to “Boston” the album “Boston”

 

Well, it’s Thursday and I’ve got a cold really well.  My entire body is sore, I’ve got what sounds like a smoker’s cough, & every time I cough, I bring up phlegm from the deep.  I also have a sinus headache.  I thought a cod was supposed to get better after a few days.  Kim touched my forehead before she left for work.  She said it felt warm, no surprise to me.

I’ve been stretching every day & practicing guitar.  I find teaching myself guitar frustrating.  I know what to do, my left hand disagrees.  I never really practiced the first time around.  Picked up my mom’s old acoustic, learned some bass lines, & helped Rob learn bass.  About a year later I got my first guitar for my 21st birthday.

I fell asleep to “Ascot Royals” the 2017 EP “New Skin”

Just a lot of stretching this week to mostly “The Watchmen” the album “Live & in Stereo”

 

If/When it’s my time for back surgery, I just hope to recover quickly.  This all feels like a very minor inconvenience.  I really want to get back to exercising.  I don’t know how long it will be to recover.  I already feel as though I’ve wasted 6 months doing absolutely nothing productive.  All of this stretching seems to be for nothing if I’m just going to have surgery anyway.

I guess I can’t complain, I’ve made it this far & the smaller T-Shirts that didn’t fit me when I first started working out like a mad man still fit me today.  I guess that’s still a bonus.  I was 265 at my heaviest but everything fit me fine.  There’s a photo of me in a white T-Shirt playing guitar on stage, that’s me at 265.  I’m just a big person.  I’m 37 years old & 6’1”.  When I graduated high school I was 18 years old, 6’1” & 185 pounds…………….then I discovered beer!

My wife shares everything.  She was kind enough to even give me her cold!  I don’t just get a cold though!  No, my body will take a cold & turn it up to 11.  Small fever, phlegm, cough, sometimes shaking uncontrollably, etc.  I started to feel like crap Monday night.  Went to bed a bit before 10:20 pm.  I was hot, cold, had to pee, got up to take some medication a few times, anything but fall asleep until 3:45 am.  Slept until 6:00 am on Tuesday, said goodbye to Kim when she left for work & fell asleep until 9:30 pm.  Had breakfast & my medication now I shall nap!

I slept very well Tuesday night!  Woke up just before Kim did to get ready for work today.  Then I got up around 8:00 am after a bad coughing fit, I thought I was better, but not quite.

I wasn’t all that sure of what albums I was anticipating for this year other than a guarantee from Big Wreck.  Now I can add “Royal Blood” as well as “Stone Sour”, “Queens of the Stone Age” & maybe “System of a Down”?

 

I’d go, only for “The Pretty Reckless” though

I’ve been waiting to hear about this one too, “Paramore” the album “After Laughter” out May 12th on iTunes

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.

I fell asleep to “Ed Sheeran” the new album “Divide”, then “Pentatonix” their 4th EP of covers, & finally “Coheed & Cambria” the album “The Colour Before The Sun”

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

Just a lot of stretching this week to mostly “The Watchmen” the new album “Live & In Stereo”

 

We’re broke.  No other way to put it.  Maybe it’s because of tax season, but we have less cash flow than most average couples when it’s not tax season.  We spend the same amount of money a month as most people our age spend in a week.  Kim has a good job, & she enjoys it.  The last time we went out for supper was probably my birthday in January?  We can’t afford to travel anywhere.  I end up blaming myself, knowing I couldn’t have predicted this situation.  All of that being said, I do blame myself somewhat.  After all, I’m the one who had cancer & put us in this spot.  I’m NOT asking for a hand out, I’m just telling you how it is.  So many people have helped us out financially along the way, especially when I was in the hospital.  Thank you!

I always worry about our finances, since I’m terrible with money & I never see what we have in the bank.  I guess paycheck to paycheck is how we’re living now.  I always ask Kim if we can afford whatever I’m looking at purchasing.  My weakness is music from iTunes.  No matter how much it is, I ask Kim if it’s OK.  Kim gave me an allowance.  More than likely a good idea.  I’ve really slowed down on buying music anyways.  I know which artists I want to hear more of, & it’s not every band I’ve heard of!  I only had 2 years of mortgage insurance, but neither of us was working for almost 5 years.

I guess Kim & I suffer from the cancer side effect originally from Hawaii called “Lackamoola” as my brother found a birthday card for me years ago.

This is a one income no kids (oinks) household.  If there’s a child in this house, the battle is between Brewster & I.  I like stuff & he needs to be with someone 24 hours a day.  He has terrible anxiety.  If he sees me putting on my shoes, he starts to freak out.

After the game on Tuesday, April 11, 2017, the Toronto Blue Jays have played 7 games & only have 1 win to show for their efforts.  They are currently 1W-6L.  Last April they finished the month at 11W-14L.  I hear all of these broadcasters saying “Aw, it’s only April” & they want to see meaningful baseball in September.  Well these games are just as important if you want to see meaningful baseball in September.  What were Blue Jay fans doing during the last regular season game last year?  Praying to make it into the playoffs!  If you turn their wins & loses around for April of last year to 14W-11L, I wouldn’t have been biting my nails during the final game last year.  Right now 11W-14L looks like an impossible achievement.  Mostly the same players picking up right where they left off last year………………….sad.  The only real upside is at first base.  The guy couldn’t hit water if he fell out of a boat the last 2 years.  So far this year, he’s one of the best hitters they have.  He’s not a home run hitter, but he does hit very well as a contact hitter.  Only 155 games left in the regular season!

 

YAY!  Royal Blood release confirmed “How did we get so dark?” release date June, 16th!  No preorder or anything like that………………yet!  I think I just saw on their Facebook page that there will be a song available on Thursday, April 13th at 7:00 pm EST!  They’re not a metal band if you’ve never heard of them.  A drummer & bass player/singer, a hard rock band.  Dave Grohl called them to see if they’d open for Foo Fighters on the tour for “Sonic Highways” during 2015.

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??????

I fell asleep to “”Royal Blood” their only album, then “Room 333” the album “Red Dragon”, & finally “Third Ion” the album “Biolith”

I exercised to “Chevelle” the album “La Gargola”

 

I’ve been doing my exercises as usual.  Just slowly building to the number of repetitions I’m hoping to eventually get to.  Right now I’m at 200 crunches, 30 pushups, & on Tuesday I added a back exercise Kim showed me.  You lay on your front & raise your arms & legs.  I hold that for a count of 5 & do that 10 times.  I’ve decided not to even attempt squats or leg lifts until my sciatic nerve is healed 100%.  My expectations of my exercise are much higher than I’m supposed to do.  I’m dropping the total of everything………………not what I want to do.  However, I’ve already reached the limit of visits to the chiropractor that I can claim for taxes until next year.  I’ve seen him quite a bit for this nerve nuisance.

I’m hoping to do 1200 crunches, 80 pushups, 80 squats, 80 leg lifts, & 20 – 30 back things a day.  It’s less than before but probably not low enough as others wanted.  Right now the numbers are varying.  Seeing what my limits are without doing too much.

As for what else I’m working on, I’ll give you the full deal on Friday.

 

I hope everyone is enjoying their free/rented music.  I’m now at 3 concerts I can’t afford to go to.  “Walk off the Earth” $71/ticket, “Ed Sheeran” $117/ticket, & “In Flames” which I think has passed already.  All of these were/are also out of town 2 of them are 2.5 hours away, the other was 8 hours away.  After we pay a crap load of money for the tickets.  We still have gas, food & accommodations to pay for.  Do musicians think we all have hundreds of dollars burning a hole in our pockets?

Yes, I buy my music from iTunes & then it’s mine, no longer a possession of iTunes/Apple.  I look at streaming sites & iTunes differently.  Apple Music (the streaming service) I see as an apartment.  You pay a monthly fee.  Great, what do you own?  Nothing, it feels more like renting to me.  They can evict you (shut down) whenever they want.  I use Apple Music to preview a band I’ve never heard before.  I’m not saying to use it as I do, that’s just how I choose to use it.

Kim just uses it as a radio.  Yesterday was the first time she actually “downloaded” an album to stream.

I pay a fee for every album I purchase from iTunes.  It’s mine then, I purchased it, if Apple wants to take it away, I’d consider that flat out theft!  I see it as making mortgage payments.  Sure I can be evicted but it’ll be much more difficult, unless I break the rules.  I think if they ever shut down, which could easily happen, I’ll get to keep my files, especially since I have them backed up on an external hard drive or I own some on CD.

 

I think “Royal Blood” may be announcing a preorder date soon?  I saw what I think is a new tune on their Facebook page.

 

Want to hear 21 live songs by “The Watchmen” out of Winnipeg, Manitoba?  Preorder “Live & in Stereo” on iTunes & thank me later!

 

Queens of the Stone Age are saying they’re done recording the new album?  They also said this in the late fall/early winter.

I’m pretty sure I heard a clip of Josh Homme saying he was done lead guitar & vocals months ago?

http://diymag.com/2017/03/28/queens-of-the-stone-age-album-finished

 

So many Alter Bridge fans like the album “Blackbird”, it’s good but highly overrated I find.  I’d rate it 5th out of the 5 studio albums they’ve released.  My list from worst to first would be; “Blackbird”, “One Day Remains”, “ABIII”, “Fortress”, & “The Last Hero”

http://loudwire.com/alter-bridge-albums-ranked/#photogallery-1=1

 

What I know for sure.  April 7th I’ll get the live Watchmen album & Pentatonix 7 song EP of covers.  May will bring the new Linkin Park, & June will bring the new Stone Sour.  Everything but Stone Sour, Royal Blood, & Queens of the Stone Age I have on preorder.  The last 3 have yet to release anything.

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!
