Do you have a question about stage 4 brain cancer? Ask if you do!
Music throughout the weekend. “The Watchmen”, “Tool”, “Coheed and Cambria”, “The Struts”, & “Smashing Pumpkins”
I could sit here & tell you about my weekend activities & I will, but first something out of the ordinary. Kim & I watched the movie “Stronger” on Thursday evening. The movie about Jeff Bauman who lost his legs during the explosion at the Boston Marathon.
I’m not comparing his injury to mine EVER. He lost his legs, I still have mine. While watching it, I realized how much a-like our emotions are/were. How much I could relate to that movie on an emotional level. I didn’t get all teary eyed watching it, it was more of a “Hey, I’ve felt the same way.”
Friday we ordered supper from “Brown’s Social House” it’s been a while since I’ve had fish & chips. We watched the first episode of season 3 of “13 Reasons Why” on Netflix. Meanwhile I’ve been trying to finish the 2nd season of “Mindhunter” on Netflix, I’m almost there I finished episode 7 so 3 more to go. Kim doesn’t watch it, just me, much like “Criminal Minds”.
I think I figured out what caused me not to sleep well over the week? I usually have 1-6 alcoholic beverages over the course of a weekend. I didn’t have any, in the attempted to save some money & I just didn’t feel like any. I never drink anything other than water, black coffee, & “Bubbly”. Bubbly is my new favourite drink. Carbonated water with natural fruit flavouring, which is a very small dose of the fruit.
Went to the Saskatchewan Roughriders game Saturday evening. WOW penalties! Time for our head coach, Craig Dickenson, to start handing out fines for each penalty. Riders won against the Ottawa Red Blacks but it was ugly, far too many penalties! Final score was Saskatchewan 40 Ottawa 18. Terrible amount of Rider penalties & really stupid ones on top of that. I never “BOO” the Riders at home but I was very close on Saturday!
Today we went to our friends’ place for a BBQ to welcome their exchange student from Spain. Nice weather & just as we left it looked as though there might be a storm brewin’. The wind picked up & the clouds got really dark!
Ozzy Osbourne to release 24 vinyl box set.
Jeff Buckley was absolutely FANTASTIC & still is!
Bands that made 1 good album.
So now the “Avengers” movies have to change the story line? Really stupid after steering us in one direction only to pull us in a new one after “Spider-man Far From Home”
Disney + streaming November 12th? Looks good!
A metal/hard rock group from the USA. Other than that I can tell you there are currently 4 members. They sometimes get lumped in with acts like “Disturbed” & “5 Finger Death Punch”? I can’t say I listen to either one. I did listen to both in 2002 then stopped after each band released their 3rd album. “Disturbed” is on me & “5 Finger Death Punch” is on my brother who saw them open for “Korn” likely a once in a lifetime chance for him to see them, even though neither one of us owns an album by “Korn”.
Anyways, “Chevelle” is the way to go if you ask me. I’ve got 9 studio albums, one of B-Sides & rarities from late last year & another one coming soon this year or next.
