5 day exercise total; 400 pushups, 300 tricep pushups, 300 back flexes, 360 squats, 600 leg lifts, 300 crunches.

I fell asleep to “Dead Sara” both albums followed by the EP “Temporary Things Taking up Space”

I exercised to “Sandbox” the album “Bionic”

Yes, the singer is Bubbles from the Canadian TV show “Trailer Park Boys” the guy with the glasses

 

Monday was tough after 9 days off.  Oddly, it got much easier as the week progressed?  That was a pleasant surprise.  I could have just sat here & complained about a boring life, done nothing when I was released from my cancer rehabilitation.  Instead I chose to try & get myself as close to what I was before cancer.

Remember that whatever is going on in your life you almost always have a choice.  The path of least resistance was not for me.  “Yeah, let’s make it as difficult as possible” – idiot/me

After almost 5 ½ years, I’m finally seeing some muscle, not much but some.  After watching all of that www.youtube.com stuff on exercising, I can tell you it’s a flat out LIE!  If it was true, I’d have been quite muscular 4 or 5 years ago!  Watch a www.youtube.com video & try to replicate it, doesn’t work in my case!

 

Today is the day!!!!  “Bohemian Rhapsody” is in theaters today!!!!!  I don’t like joining a crowd.  I’ll see it next week or sometime shortly after that!

Mike Myers on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert regarding many topics including his role in “Bohemian Rhapsody”

 

Everybody knew ‘grunge’ had its moment but Marilyn Manson in its place now?  I’ve heard a few songs of his, they’re not what you might think they might sound like.  They were album tracks & they were mostly orchestral music.

Dream Theater is releasing their 14th album in February!  Great, the 34 song double album “The Astonishing” was far from what I/fans expected & knew they could do better!

I like “Slipknot”, I’ve got their albums.  I’ve never been anxious for any album of theirs to be released until now!

Ah yes, “I’m going to sue you because my husband took too many of the pills you prescribed him”.  I miss Chris Cornell & Soundgarden too, but the doctor didn’t shove the pills down his throat, or was he on tour with Soundgarden?

Big Wreck’s Facebook status “New Big Wreck coming along nicely.”  SWEET!

 

COUNTING CROWS

I own 2 of their albums that I bought on CD in the 1990s.  I actually bought 5 studio albums & a double album of them live.  I’m good with only the first 2 studio albums though.  I really don’t know about this band so here’s what http://www.google.com tells me.  They formed in Berkley, California in 1991.  Their first big album was released in 1993 & their 2nd album was released in 1996.  When I got their 2nd album that was all I listened to for 2-3 weeks.  Their most recent studio album was released in 2014.

 

1993     AUGUST & EVERYTHING AFTER

 

1996     RECOVERING THE SATELLITES

I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “Silence in the Snow” followed by “In Flames” the album “Sounds of a Playground Fading”

 

I exercised to “Slipknot” the album “5 The Gray Chapter”

 

500 crunches, 500 leg lifts, 375 pushups, 200 back flexes, & 25 minutes of planking.

That’s 100 crunches, 100 leg lifts, 75 pushups, 40 back flexes, & 5 minutes of planking each working day.

I think I figured out a portion, maybe all about a re-occurring dream I’ve been having since I was in the WRC.

I continually dream that I’m late for high school & I have an English paper that’s WAY overdue.  I get to school & have no clue as to what my locker combination is.

In University in 1999 my grandmother died of breast cancer.  I was a mess at the time.  I skipped out on an English final & drove to Moose Jaw & back instead.  With the 3rd Foo Fighters’ album that had just been released in November blasting the entire time.  My grandmother passed away on December 5th, 1999.

I guess that dream is more about me having some type of unfinished business to deal with?  Maybe it’s nothing & I’m reading too much into it?

No Trump talk!  You know what I think about him & you’re entitled to your own take on him!  I have never & will never condone violence to ANYONE.  If I thought it would change anything I’d give Trump a slap upside the head.

I’m typically not a political person.  Canadian politics bore me & I choose not to vote.  If I lived in the USA that would be different.  I watch too much CNN, since watching Trump lead the USA is much like his campaign x 100.

 

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

 

It’s August, there’s very little music being released & not much for music news but here’s what I could find.

 

Audio interview with Chris Adler, drummer for Lamb of God.

 

Audio interview with Corey Taylor, singer for Stone Sour & Slipknot.

 

Audio interview with Royal Blood.

 

 

Poor camera man!  Kim & I just laughed & laughed & laughed………..

 

When I was working, I’d listen to my iPod a double album of “Lynyrd Skynyrd” their Greatest Hits & “Systematic Chaos” by Dream Theater, or the odd podcast.  One ear bud in my right ear, other one down my shirt.  Noise cancelling headphones on.  Those 2 albums would pretty much last my 8 hour shift.

 

A 2nd song from Jack Johnson!!!!!

 

A PBS concert\documentary regarding Foo Fighters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/foo-fighters-rock-the-acropolis-in-landmarks-live-trailer-w498301

 

Jimmy Kimmel reads mean tweets from Trump supporters.

http://www.rollingstone.com/tv/news/jimmy-kimmel-reads-mean-tweets-from-angry-trump-supporters-w498287

 

Jose Bautista is too old to be the face of the franchise, he’ll probably ask for too much next year whoever he signs with & he’s a whiner.  Have fun on the Free Agent market at the end of the year, if you’re still with the Blue Jays at the end of August.

If Jose Bautista can hit 30 home runs this year, I still don’t think I’d renew his contract of $18,000,000.  Troy Tulowitzki & Jose Bautista would be the first of many players I’d try to dump on whoever wants to pay for a name.  Right there is $38,000,000 off the books of players not living up to their contracts!

 

My album of the year for whatever year it was, was “Nothing but Thieves” self-titled debut album.  Their 2nd album is being released on September 8th this year & here are the 3 singles they have released thus far…

It’s not close to hard rock, rock, or metal.  Lots of people my age & younger will not like this group.  I’m OK with that, for any music I listen to, I never said you had to like it.

August 25th new Queens of the Stone Age, September 8th Nothing But Thieves, Alter Bridge anthology, & Jack Johnson, September 15th Foo Fighters.  After that, who knows?

I fell asleep to “Alice Cooper” the album “Paranormal”, “Diemonds” the album “Never Wanna Die”, & finally “INXS” their “Greatest Hits”

Yeah, bonus live tracks at the end of this album.

 

I exercised to “Royal Blood” the album “How did we get so dark?”

 

Exercise total this week; 500 crunches, 500 leg lifts, 300 pushups, 200 back flexes, & 25 minutes of planking!  Every day starts with me exercising, no shower, dressed in workout attire, & no breakfast.  Once I finish my exercises, then I allow myself to have breakfast, shower, put on clean clothes, & usually in this room to work on the next blog.  Yep, I hit my goal every day this week.

I do get quiet exhausted after my 60 pushups.  I leave them for the end since I’m useless after them.  I roll on to my side or back since it’s easier to breathe!  I start my exercises on my back, crunches & leg lifts, once I roll on to my stomach & do ½ of my back flexes, I’m breathing pretty heavy already!  I end up doing some of my planking for a bit.  Once the back flexes & planking is done, then I’ll do a set of 20-30 pushups, then fish with 2 sets of 20 or a set of 30.

After I shower, I check to see if my balance has improved with my hands hovering by my transfer pole.  Some days are really good, & most days are bad.  When it’s a bad day I’ll try a few more times.  That’s the reason for the wheelchair & exercising!  I need to start walking with my walker at least once a week, if not 3 times a week.  When I do, I can tell that my exercising makes a HUGE improvement each time!  That being said, I’ve still have a long road ahead of me.

 

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

I fell asleep to “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “Rated R” followed by “Radiohead” the album “The Bends”

 

I exercised to “Corrosion of Conformity” the album “America’s Volume Dealer” then 2 “Diemonds” albums on shuffle

 

I completely forgot!  Thursday, July 26th 2012 was my final day in the Wascana Rehabilitation Center.  I was discharged in the early afternoon after my last physio session & a short meeting with my doctor, therapists, & pharmacist.  We’ll leave the details for Friday!

 

SHARK WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yah, it’s Shark Week on the Discovery channel.  I love Shark Week.  It hit me the other day.  Why are people so afraid of sharks?  Is it because they will bite & kill if needed?  Probably.  Well the seas & oceans are where they live, their home.  Humans live on dry land, that’s our home.  We go into their home uninvited to poke & prod them to learn about them.  If a stranger came into your house & started doing scientific tests on you, would you just sit by & let them do that or would you retaliate so much to avoid them ever coming back?  I would yell, swear, fight & act like I was right out of my mind with a baseball bat in hand!

I’m not about to welcome a complete stranger into my home at any given time to do as they please?  I wonder why sharks can kill people?  Oh right, that’s their self-defense kicking in!  The scientists doing all of these tests will say “This doesn’t hurt the animal”.  Great, how do you know that?  Are you a shark that has experienced this type of testing?  Oh, you tried it on yourself & it didn’t bother you, really?  The shark feels pain at the exact same threshold as you?  Tell me a better story, I don’t buy that one.

Then they investigate sharks in the deep ocean, where it’s very dark 4000 feet.  I wonder why those species live in the deep ocean?  I’m guessing part of the reason is they don’t want to be bothered.

It’s great that scientists & divers have a thirst for knowledge, but does anyone NEED to know what’s going on 4000 feet down on the ocean floor?

Our weekend finished with me watching most of the Jays game until it looked as though it was out of hand by 8 runs for the wrong team.  Now that they’re basically out of it, “Blue Jays in :30” is all I need to see.

Yes, it’s a regular 5 day week for us this week.  That means as of Monday, I’m back to my exercise routine.  I’d love to increase a few things, but I have to take my back into consideration.

 

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

 

Thor & The Incredible Hulk, “Ragnarok” trailer.  In theaters in November.

At the moment ‘Royal Blood’, ‘The Watchmen’, ‘The Smalls’, ‘Paramore’, ‘Stone Sour’, ‘Slipknot’ & ‘Big Wreck’ are ruling my world!

 

FANTASTIC Pearl Jam song, maybe it was because I could play it without putting my guitar in some wacky tuning?

 

I like ‘Walk off the Earth’ & they shared it…….

Kim just doesn’t get the credit that she deserves!  Sure I can do stuff on my own, but without Kim, I likely wouldn’t be alive today.  All through the cancer crap that went on, she was right there with me 24/7 for 4.5 years.  She told my parents “He’s not going to die.”  Why did she say that?  She wasn’t going to let me die!

We don’t have kids, A) We can’t afford to have a kid.  B)  I’m not confident I’d be a good father.  C)  I’m a dependent already.  I can’t drive to the drug store for my refills or cold medication.  I love Kim.  She’s the one that does stuff to help me when needed.  I try not to take her for granted, but at times it may seem like I do.

I know it’s a cliché to say “She’s been through thick & thin with me”, but it’s true.  All of the cancer stuff aside, she’s AWESOME!  I couldn’t love her more!  If she wasn’t so shy, I’d love to introduce her to the world!!

 

Friday finished with Kim & I just watching some Netflix.  Saturday the Toronto Blue Jays won against a ridiculously good team in the Houston Astros, the Saskatchewan Roughriders also won their first game of the season here against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.  The Riders are now 1W-2L.

Today is looking quite relaxing.  My cold is almost gone.  I’ll be watching the Blue Jays game, which has already started (I record them all just in case this situation arises).  Then we’ll get ready for the week!

 

 

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

 

I see a TON of video blogs on www.youtube.com that are titled “Top 10 reasons people hate _____________”  Hating a band would take a lot of energy that could be focused on something positive.  One reason to not like a band is that they’re not what you want to hear.  “…..Simple as that……”  One reason only, the only reason needed.

 

I was listening to the latest ‘Megadeth’ album “Dystopia”.  I found it much better than I had initially thought.  Pretty good album I’d have to say.

 

I find this oddly convenient since it happened at the same time “Nickelback” & “Stone Sour” were both releasing an album.  “Nickelback” on June 16th & “Stone Sour” on June 30th.  I think the trash talking was reported right around “Nickelback’s” release?

 

Starting Pitchers for MLB teams are having blister injuries on their throwing hand.  The baseballs this year are travelling on average 7 feet further when hit.  The reason for this is that the baseballs are much harder & the stitching on them is noticeably lower.  The stitching being lower will cause pitchers to put more pressure on the stitching to make the ball spin the proper way.  So many pitchers around the league are experiencing a blister issue for the first time in their life.  I would hope the commissioner of MLB will rectify the issue for next year or they may have to resort to a pitching machine?

I have no albums preordered for the month of July.  Actually nothing until August 25th when Queens of the Stone Age release their album.  I do plan to see the Spider-man Homecoming movie though!

I fell asleep to “Big Wreck” the album “Grace Street”

 

In the kitchen this morning while unloading the dishwasher I listened to “Foo Fighters” the album “The Colour & The Shape”

 

80 pushups, 200 crunches, 40 back flexes, 100 leg lifts, & 10 minutes of planking.  I only did 1 day of leg lifts.  More of a time issue with spending a day at my parents’ place.

 

Well Thursday was a waste of a day!  On the couch, slept until noon, had lunch.  Couldn’t fall asleep again & proceeded to cough, sneeze, & blow my nose!  What a fun day.  To continue the evening, I coughed so hard that I threw up my hot water, apple cider vinegar, & honey.  Good thing our couch is leather!

I’m better today than yesterday’s gong show, coughing & blowing my nose still though.  Lots of goo coming out of my throat, which I guess is a good thing.

 

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

 

How does Slipknot not play at their own festival?  I wouldn’t think Stone Sour is what most metal fans are expecting?  (Corey Taylor is the singer/vocalist for both bands)

 

Long article with singer Josh Homme regarding new Queens of the Stone Age album.

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/features/josh-homme-on-queens-of-the-stone-ages-new-villains-lp-w490156

 

Why was this chosen to be the first single from the new ‘Stone Sour” album?  Many people are wondering why it’s even on the album.  Are the lyrics a tribute to The Rolling Stones?  “….it’s only rock n’ roll but I like it…..”

I fell asleep to “Soundgarden” the album “Superunknown”

I exercised to “Royal Blood” the new album “How Did We Get So Dark?”

 

Only 4 days, Kim took the day off, so did I!

160 pushups, 400 leg lifts, 400 crunches, 80 back flexes, 20 minutes of planking, some yoga.  Numbers stayed the same this week.  100 leg lifts, 100 crunches, 20 back flexes, 40 pushups, 5 minutes of planking & random amounts of yoga first thing every day!

Why am I still alive after stage 4 brain cancer?  Family, friends but mostly Kim.  She’s been my rock/island whatever Simon & Garfunkel were singing about?

I would have literally died.  She learned how to administer my TPN (food & water IV).  She did that, so we could go to the lake, sleep at home, go out to a few concerts, etc.  She came to every appointment with me!  She’d push my wheelchair until I was strong enough to do it myself, she would give me my pills at night or get a nurse to do so when I was too weak to push my call button.  She argued with the hospitals to sleep on a cot beside my bed at each hospital I was in, & would write updates on how I was doing in a Facebook group of 500 people!  She was truly “The Nurse Who Loved Me”

Would I change anything?  Maybe the cancer part of my life or my attitude towards the end of it all, but nothing else comes to mind.

I asked Kim if she’d like to go see “Wonder Woman” in the theater.  She said “Why do we need to go to the theater?  I’m right here!”  Well played Kim, well played!

Routine annual cancer check up at the cancer center.  Saw the doctor that routinely tells me to lose weight.  Instead of just calling me fat once this year, she told me 3 times that I should “lose weight”.  After the appointment we went out for lunch, I had fish tacos, I think they’re my new favourite food!  I hope it’s relatively healthy?  It’s not like I eat much unhealthy food or drink heavily, oh well,

 

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

Didn’t take him long to realize he was totally wrong!

 

This won’t end well?  Corey Taylor (Slipknot/Stone Sour vocals) vs. (Chad Kroeger Nickelback vocals).  All I have to say is, “Nickelback is diverse?  What did I miss?”  No doubt they’re doing well for themselves.  When you listen to Nickelback, AC/DC, or Motorhead, you know what you’re getting, I’m always up for some Motorhead!

 

It’s only June 23rd & it’s been a great year in music for me.  Big Wreck, The Watchmen, Linkin Park, Ed Sheeran, Ascot Royals, Paramore, Royal Blood, & these 4 albums yet to be released but I have them preordered!  I’ll have these by the end of September!  Most recent concert was Big Wreck w/ Ascot Royals opening.  FANTASTIC SHOW!
