I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the album “Concrete & Gold” yes I got it last night, I’m really not sure about this album.

I exercised to “INXS” their “Greatest Hits” & as most times silence after the album is done.

500 crunches, 500 leg lifts, 500 pushups, 200 back flexes, & 25 minutes of planking.  I check Brewster’s food & water dishes, then exercise, eat, then shower & make myself look respectable.  I know what you’re thinking “Does he just wake looking that bad?”  No, I wake up far worse. It takes quite a while to polish this turd.

All of this exercising does make a noticeable difference when I practice walking!  Not only that but I’ve dropped 46 pounds, slowly.  I eat better now & I drink around 2.5 liters of water.  I no longer crave sugar either!  Friday & Saturday are the only evenings I drink alcohol, usually 2 or 3 drinks each night or more if it’s a special occasion.  Then when Sunday comes I don’t touch any alcohol until Friday!  This not only makes me feel better & more alert, it helps out our bank account.  There’s even been a few weekends that I just don’t feel like drinking alcohol.

5 days a week I eat the same thing for breakfast & lunch, supper is commonly healthy as well.

I may weigh less than I ever have but all of my fat went straight to my belly aka a lot of my T-Shirts still don’t fit.  “I’ll have to do cardio more often”-said no one ever!

 

THAT’S ALL FOR THE CANCER TALK FOR NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don’t forget Foo Fighters’ album “Concrete & Gold” is out now for all to enjoy!  I’m a HUGE Foo Fighters fan. Was I listening to The Beach Boys or FF last night? Initial awesome songs & some miss’. I like The Beach Boys, in small doses. Foo Fighters had a plethora of harmonies on that album though. I listened to it twice last night, I’ll have to sit down & give it a good listen.

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

Dave Grohl audio/video interview with Lars Ulrich of Metallica

 

“Prophets of Rage” is also out today!  I like “Rage Against The Machine”, but I’ll wait to hear it all before I buy “Prophets of Rage”.

 

There’s also a (Deluxe) (Remastered) version of Radiohead’s album “OK Computer” with 11 bonus songs.  Their 2nd & 3rd album for me, are absolute necessities!  As for this remastered bonus version, I’d buy a few songs but I’m good with the Radiohead albums I own on CD.  There’s a band who’s first 3 albums are really good!  I was so excited for the release of their 4th album “Kid A” which turned out to be a HUGE disappointment for me.  They kept a lot of fans & likely lost a lot of fans but gained a lot as well.

2nd album

3rd album

The first Radiohead album is good, it’s more of a “grunge” album though.

 

Wait, wait, wait!  “Steel Panther” waited 2 decades for hair metal to be all but gone, then released their first album?

First album 2011?  REALLY!  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Who the heck listens to this?  Oh right, Rydell!  Great guy, but how did we ever play in the same band?

 

A phone for $1000?  Will it call or receive phone calls?  That’s all I need.  $15 at Walmart for a land line phone, I’m good with that!

I will never understand the adoration most Alter Bridge fans have for the album & song “Blackbird”.  It’s subjective like all art is I guess.

Brewster is at the groomers right now. He had an appointment at 7:00 am, and yes I got up at the same time Kim got up to get in the shower to take him to the groomers. He gets so excited if we say “Sara”, his groomer’s name. Weird guy LOVES getting a hair cut? I’ve never seen a dog so excited for a trim?

I’m really getting tired of Facebook for 2 reasons. Everybody has an opinion & I get that not everyone has the same opinion as the next person. Seems as though Facebook is the new way lots of people like to pick an argument about someone they have never met in person & have a different opinion. People were complaining about a “Pearl Jam” concert being canceled because the law changed in that state & “Pearl Jam” followed suit & canceled the show as many other bands did. The law was against the LGBT community. I said “Hey, it’s a concert that was canceled for a reason. If you don’t like that the show was canceled, stop harping on the band. Talk to someone in the Government about the new law”. Then random people complain about my opinion. I can’t change the law, I live in a different country! What did I do, & why are they whining & complaining to me?

Candice, who I met in University through her now husband Rydell, was getting heat for the fiasco of a child that was in a Gorilla exhibit. Everybody was outraged that the Gorilla was shot? What, they’d prefer if the child was shot instead? I have nothing against any animal, but REALLY?!?! Give your head a shake?

Now we have the shooting in Orlando. All of the gun loving Americans would probably say ”Well, if those gays had a gun on them this type of thing wouldn’t have happened”. It happened. Why did the idiot who did this have a gun in the first place? “Well, you can’t tell if someone will mentally snap after they purchase a gun”? Who the heck needs an AK-47? Unless you’re in the military or police force on duty, you shouldn’t need or own one. If you live in America, they’ll sell a gun to any John or Jane Doe that has the money. If the shooter didn’t have a gun none of this would have happened!

Yeah, the shooter was American, apparently a member of ISIS, & Islam! In that case he’s just as different as the rest of us in that he was all of those things & an extremist

What album are you excited for being released in July?

http://loudwire.com/vote-most-anticipated-new-release-july-2016/

Easy pick for me. That Blink-182 could be really good, really annoying, or just OK?

I’d be upset if Anthrax were to call it a career & quit.

In Flames signed a new contract with Nuclear Blast

“In a way, IN FLAMES and Nuclear Blast share a similar story,” said IN FLAMES vocalist Anders Fridén. “Both started in a garage in Europe, both love metal and both have grown a lot bigger over the years. For these reasons, it seemed a natural fit to come back to the place it all started.”

Did anybody hear that Tremonti released the album “Dust”?

I hope I Mother Earth’s Facebook page means Our Lady Peace will be touring with them?

This could also be just a one time deal for residents in Ontario?

LIVING CANCER FREE

I fell asleep to “Puscifer” the album “Money Shot” after 3 or 4 attempts at other albums including “Prince” the album “Purple Rain” & “Pantera” the album “Vulgar Display of Power”

EXPLICIT LANGUAGE IN THE SONG BELOW!!! Prince never allowed any audio in his youtube videos. Here’s Foo Fighters covering “Darling Nikki” as a B-Side for single from “The Colour & The Shape” released in 1997.

I exercised to “Dream Theater” the first 3 songs on the album “The Astonishing”

Followed by “Lynyrd Skynyrd” a double album “The Essential” on shuffle

Rydell I remember this from your wedding. I think you were dancing with the mothers?

I have to put this. It was a hilarious episode of the 4 season series “My Name is Earl”

So now I’m living cancer free which is awesome! Those 4 & ½ years look smaller & smaller as time progress’. Can’t remember them nor do I really want to. Now I pay far more attention to my health. I eat much better than I did before. Sure I splurge like most people about 2 or 3 times a month or on the odd occasion we go out, which isn’t very often. The rest of the time I drink a mixture of fruit & vegetables I toss in a blender & have that for breakfast usually other than once a month that we go out for brunch. Lunch is usually a chicken wrap with a bit of grated cheese & Frank’s Red Hot. Supper is a wild card, usually chicken with Quinoa & wild rice in some form with some type of vegetables or a salad from Pita Pit or something along those lines. I eat less sugar filled stuff than I did before. Even my snacks are grapes, carrots or rice/pita crackers & hummus. 2 or 3 liters of water or a glass of cranberry juice to change it up a bit. If we go out, it depends on my mood, a salad or the tastiest thing on the menu. I exercise Monday-Friday for a little over an hour & I think we’ll be walking Saturdays & Sundays in our parkade with my walker & Kim holds me to make sure I don’t fall! I wish you all could meet her, she’s beyond AWESOME!

There’s no manual for surviving, surviving stage 4 brain cancer. I was told to exercise, especially my core muscles. So I spend roughly 1 ½ hours every morning exercising. My abdominal muscles are incredible, unfortunately they’re covered by a layer of fat. My mom suggested I try doing some squats! I’ve added that into my exercises. I have many exercises I can do here at home on the floor & stairs, walking & using the exercise bike in the condo’s “gym” aka a exercise bike & a treadmill.

ROYAL BLOOD, FOO FIGHTERS & CALGARY

A Million Miles Away Blog on facebook.

www.amillionmilesawayblog.com

Give the site a moment to load all of the links. It takes a bit for my computer & it crashes on Kim’s cell.

I don’t own a mobile device since I’m always with someone when I’m away from home. Anyone I’m out with has a cell or tablet/iPad, I don’t need one.

Two things you should know. I needed a break from my computer & on Wednesday morning we drove to Calgary for this fantastic concert.

Now my dad has seen Foo Fighters 3 times since 2008, & I’ve seen them 4 times since 2000. 2000 in Saskatoon at a 1 day outdoor festival, 2003 at a hall in Edmonton, 2011 & 2015 in Calgary. I’ll just say the concert was AWESOME! Royal Blood opened, played from 7-8, played a bit of a riff from Black Sabbath & most of their album. Foo Fighters played from 8:30-11:00, with no encore, a Rolling Stones song & “Under Pressure” by Queen & David Bowie, both covers were pretty much spot on. They also played an album track that a casual fan might not have recognized? Also 3 songs from the new album “Sonic Highways”

I can’t remember the Black Sabbath riff Royal Blood played?

Royal Blood was really good too though! Bass player/singer & a drummer! REALLY GOOD!

The 4 of us, Mom, Dad, Kim & I stayed with my aunt & uncle, Kent & Leanne. We also visited my aunt & uncle in Aidrie, Joan & Terrance with my cousins Ryan & Kyla. Quick trip, drove all day Wednesday & Sunday, concert was Thursday evening. I think I gained 20lbs with visiting 2 brewerys, eating bread, cheese & scones, along with my aunt Joan’s perogys. We did sneak in a visit with Rydell & Candice which was really good. Candice is pregnant & was due on the 11th. She’s still pregnant though, waiting anxiously to get that baby out. She is & always has been PHAT! No “F” though, I can’t say DOPE since she has never smoked marijuana.

Good but fast trip to Calgary! Big thanks to Kent & Leanne for letting us stay with them & keeping us well fed & drunk………………..uh………………….hydrated?

Fun trip, only problem was Kim & I would wake up & pretty much not see each other until supper time. She would go out with my aunt & mother, while I went out with my uncle & father. My dad is the oldest of 3 children, Uncle Kent is the middle child & my Aunt Joan in Airdrie is the youngest of 3.

I listened to my iPod all the way to Calgary & back. Kim wanted to listen to an audiobook, I would’ve fallen asleep likely.
