Do you have a question about stage 4 brain cancer?  Ask if you do!

I fell asleep to “Pearl Jam” the album “Ten”

I exercised to “Alice in Chains” a Greatest Hits compilation

 

Nobody has ever said that I’m a burden or high maintenance.  I put a TON of pressure on myself.  Why?  I always have, throughout school I didn’t want to disappoint my teachers or family members.  Now I don’t want to disappoint these people, this group of people, everyone for that matter, & myself included.  That’s probably a BIG part of my depression.  When I have an off day, like when I’m too tired to exercise or don’t feel too great after I exercise, I get pretty down on myself.  All of that stress & pressure is self-inflicted.  I know it’s messed up, but that’s always been normal to me.

When I quit university, I felt like a failure.  Nobody said anything to make me feel that way, it was just how I felt & I never dumped my emotions on ANYONE!  I went from grade 8 to grade 12 getting a class pin every year, maintaining an 80% average or higher every year.  To drop out of university was devastating to me.  Very unexpected to me, maybe not to others?

My exercises this week have been really good “so far…”  I’m very happy & VERY sweaty with them every day.  Much better mood this week also!

Real life is starting to get back in my life, which is both good & disappointing.  More visits with people in the outside world but that also means the possibility of less exercise.

 

Don’t upset the hard core comic fans!  I don’t consider myself one of them, & I don’t have any comic books.  They seem like a group that could turn on creators fast.  I do feel a bit cheated after the plot of “Spider-man Far From Home” though.

This seems very subjective as well.  Some people like a fast/tough guitar solo, which can be great!  Others prefer a simple guitar solo like Nirvana’s guitar solo in Smells like Teen Spirit, it’s the melody as a solo.  As long as it serves the song I’m good either way.

I like this album.  It not my favourite by Soundgarden, but I like it.  Some hard core Soundgarden fans were really disappointed when it was released though.

I would have to agree.  Pearl Jam’s first album “Ten” is now a classic album, has been for quite a while in my eyes & ears!

I don’t think being opposed to any specific type of movie is wrong.  However, there’s no need to voice your same opinion each time one is released, like 23 in total.

 

CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL

All I have of theirs is a greatest hits album.  Before my time so a greatest hits will do just fine for me.  Most of you probably know them.  Watch the movie “Forrest Gump” or most movies involving a war, you’ll probably hear the song “Fortunate Son”…

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.

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!

 

CHEVELLE

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.

VERY DISAPPOINTING WEEKLY EXERCISE TOTAL/CRASH TEST DUMMIES

Do you have a question about stage 4 brain cancer?  Ask if you do!

5 day exercise total; 250 leg lifts, 300 crunches, 200 squats, 100 back flexes, 00 pushups, 00 curls (10 pounds on left arm & 7 pounds on right arm), 00 tricep lifts w/5 pound weight, 00 shoulder raises w/5 pound weight,  stretching, & yoga.

I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the first album “Foo Fighters” from 1995, followed by “Norah Jones” the album “Feels Like Home”

 

No sleep again last night.  Thunder & lightning outside with a heavy rain, Brewster was freaking out hard in the middle of the night.  Kim & I were both up trying to calm him down for about an hour or more.

I’ve been EXTREMELY tired all week.  Wednesday I had breakfast, exercised, posted a blog, grabbed a piece of fruit & fell asleep on the couch at 12:00 until 2:45 pm.  Then showered & tried to feel somewhat accomplished for the day on Wednesday.  In the end, I should have just stayed in bed.  I had this problem in the Wascana Rehabilitation Program before, it was because of depression, and this isn’t.  I forgot to take my pills Sunday night & staying up late because of that really messes with my sleep.  I’ve been grumpy & tired all week, that’s why my exercise total is so low this week.

I shouldn’t have even tried to exercise on Wednesday.  My muscles didn’t fully activate & I’ve had odd aches I’ve never had before.

I could worry about this past week & make it far worse in my head, or I could just move on.  I choose to move on, be disappointed for a minimal amount of time, get over it & carry on.  I’ll take it as a learning experience & do better next week.  I can’t change what has already happened.

I like to think of myself as normal as any able bodied person, but I’m not.  Cleaning, doing dishes, & just rushing around the house is actually much harder on me than I remember it being.  Now just doing one extra chore burns me out to the point I’m sweating & out of breath.  Even on the weekends with nothing going on!  Missing my pills for one evening took me down for almost a complete work week.

People say I exercise a TON.   I don’t see it as too much.  If everyone didn’t have a job, kids or both, I guarantee everyone could do this & more if they were in my age group.

I’ll have to do some major stretching today & fire it up next week.

 

 

I got a new (3rd single) from the upcoming “Alter Bridge” album last on Thursday.

What else am I looking forward to?  In one week we’ll all be given a new “Tool” album after more than 13 years.  Also a brand new “Big Wreck” album!  YAY!!!!!!!!!!!

A big reason that I won’t touch “Spotify”.  I’ll see a Facebook post from any band I follow that goes something like this “Hey, we just added this song ______ to Spotify”.  The problem for me is that I like to listen to a full album all at once.  That song the band just added to Spotify.  I got that song from Apple Music/iTunes 6 months ago.  That’s just how I prefer to listen to my music.

https://www.kerrang.com/features/21-essential-rock-and-metal-albums-that-still-arent-on-spotify/?utm_campaign=loudwire&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&influencer=true&fbclid=IwAR265usU8KpLBHCFJAU9n8yhrixLFTc5ChtnKkMEMKEsN1yl5V9lrSG-jvw

I think “Sony” & “Disney” could end up both being HUGE losers in this “Spider-man” deal.  Hardcore comic book fans can be vicious when provoked.  Imagine billions of “Dr. Sheldon Cooper” like people coming at you & telling you how many times you’ve been wrong & how you’ve been wrong.  All in all it will be a minor loss in finances for both companies if this ends up the way I think it will, let’s watch!

As of this morning there’s been enough bad reaction from fans that there’s a rumour regarding a new deal between Sony & Disney!  Hahahahahaha!  Remember this is still just a rumour!

 

CRASH TEST DUMMIES

Another really good band out of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.  This is that band with the guy who has a deep voice.  He controls his voice very well & has more range than you’d think.  I have their 3 first albums & the “Dumb & Dumber” soundtrack with a song that launched them into the stratosphere!  We’ll start with that song….

 

1991   THE GHOSTS THAT HAUNT ME

 

1993   GOD SHUFFLED HIS FEET

 

1996   A WORM’S LIFE

I fell asleep to “RUSH” the album “Clockwork Angels”

I exercised to “Evanescence” 2011 self-titled album.

 

 

This week has already become disappointing exercise wise.  Monday was laughable at best.  Forgot to take my pills until the wee hours of the morning when I realized my error, aka I didn’t fall asleep until after I took my pills, NOT GOOD!  Wasted day!

Tuesday was more of the same although I slept, well other than the 3 times I woke up to pee. I still eat the same stuff & drink about a gallon of water a day.  I just slept in & still didn’t have any energy at all.  Despite it being a relatively quiet weekend also.

What have I learned from this?  40 isn’t that far away for me, but 36 is aka don’t fool yourself into thinking you can do the same thing you did 3 years ago, I’m getting a little older.  My whiskers will remind me until I shave!

Got up today had some energy, a minimal amount so I figured I’d just add an extra repetition or 2 to each exercise.  WOW!  “Stupid is as stupid does”-Forrest Gump.  It was hard enough to just keep my eyes open.  I was able to do some extra reps on 3 of my 4 exercises.  Could be worse, but I would like it to be better.

I am very hard on myself.  I am often my worst critic until someone tells me I’ve let something “fall through the cracks”.  I should just say “It’s on my 327 page list of things to do” or “Thanks for reminding me!”

IRON MAIDEN

I was rather tardy in buying this one.  I guess it was released in 2015.  This is a group most metal fans can agree on.  Iron Maiden & Metallica.  Their latest album, which they are just kicking off the tour for, is called “The Final Frontier”, I also find it to be one of their top 5 albums out of the 16 I own, all studio albums with one double album of greatest hits.  This entire album is REALLY good!  I highly recommend it to any Iron Maiden fan!  I’ll give you a small sampling of the album…

 

2015   THE FINAL FRONTIER

The song Trivium played over the P.A. system before they took the stage that everyone there sang along to!

 

The Toronto Blue Jays are pretty much where I expected them to be.  With all of September & a couple weeks of August left in the season, they’re at 52W-75L.  I figured by the end of the year they would have 65 or 75 wins.  At this point I’m pretty close I think.  They desperately need decent pitching though, to improve next year.  Remember this is a rebuild in motion.

Do you have a question about stage 4 brain cancer?  Ask if you do!

Music throughout the weekend.

I don’t own this, it is a possibility for me in the future though.  We listened to it on Apple Music.  I put on “Finger Eleven” & Kim piped up instantly saying she had a headache so I changed it to this…

LANGUAGE!!!!!

Have you ever heard “Ronnie James Dio” play “Holy Diver” acoustic?  “Room 333” did it acoustic & live Friday evening.  Somehow it was good, different but good.

 

My father & I went to The Exchange Friday night to see 3/5 of my brother’s group members, Room 333, play acoustic as an opening act for Tyler Gilbert.  I haven’t been there in a long time.  The last time I was there I was in my 1/3 wheelchairs & still in the Wascana Rehabilitation Center.  My brother & Roque lifted me up on to the slightly higher level, so I could see the show.  I like going to The Exchange it’s not Cheers, but lots of people know who you are by name & never think twice about helping anyone out.

Saturday was quiet.  I woke up, asked Kim “What time is it?”  She replied “9:00 am”.  I reply “Are you not going to work today?”  She replies “No it’s Saturday.”  I don’t know what I was thinking?  Kim spent the day working on her photos/homework for her class.  I got up & showered, which becomes useless at this time of year, I was sweating profusely by 2:00 in the afternoon.  I watched Blue Jays first of 4 Spring Training games left before the regular season starts on Thursday.  Made my vegetable juice for the week & hardboiled eggs for us.  I also wrote down what we needed for groceries.  I felt quite energetic on Saturday despite sweating so much.

For Saturday evening we ordered from “Brown’s Social House”.  I had a burger & yam fries.  I’m still not much of a fan of that place, but EVERYBODY else is.

My younger brother turned 32 on Saturday.

Kim & I rented “Instant Family” from iTunes Saturday night.  A comedy about kids being adopted from the foster care program starring Mark Wahlberg & Rose Byrne.

This morning Kim went for a walk around Wascana Lake with Jolene.  I got up & showered.  Then went straight to the kitchen to empty the dishwasher & have some breakfast with some “Finger Eleven” playing on the stereo!  I’ll be watching Blue Jays baseball again today, tomorrow, & Tuesday.  Wednesday they’re off for a day, & Thursday is when the regular season/marathon of 162 games that end September 29th.  Blue Jays play the final 2 spring training games in Montreal on Monday & Tuesday.  Mitch’s birthday supper with the family this evening.  I think everybody gave him cash?  Mitch & Rachel just got a new born puppy that needs surgery to fix her heart murmur.  I think she is only 3 or 4 pounds right now?  He surgery will be in Saskatoon & quite expensive.  Also a week long including tests one day, then surgery, & 3 days to recover.  The breeders flat out lied about having insurance for this sort of thing.

 

 

Spider-man “Far From Home” can’t get here fast enough!

Season 3 of “Stranger Things” isn’t that far away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What is a Keto diet?  A fad.  Works for some people, does nothing for others.  My uncle’s on it & he’s lost a lot of weight, he looks like a different person from a distance.  My mom has tried it & wasn’t successful.  Eat fat to eat the other fat.  Remember the Atkins diet that was eat nothing but protein?  Another fad diet that didn’t work for everyone.

I’m almost sure I’ll buy the “Feed the Machine” album by “Nickleback”?  That will make 4 purchased albums & 2 that I’ll listen to on occasion.

 

DARON MALAKIAN & THE SCARS ON BROADWAY

Daron is the guitar player & 2nd singer for the metal group “System of a Down”.  Serj Tankian is the lead vocalist for “System of a Down”.  It’s very much like “Jerry Cantrell” & “Layne Staley” in the original line-up for “Alice in Chains”.  Sort of 2 singers in one band.

All of the members of “System of a Down” are Armenian.

Anyways, Daron Malakian has released 2 albums as “Daron Malakian & the Scars on Broadway” a self-titled album in 2008 & an album titled “Dictator” in 2018.  “System of a Down” has released 5 individual albums, 2 in 2005 that fit together as a double album.  There are rumours floating around that they might get together to record a new album, but I’m not holding my breath for it.  They do have tour dates in America that likely doesn’t mean anything though.  They’ve toured on & off over the years.

2018   “Dictator”

As for the Toronto Blue Jays, they can’t trade center fielder, I assume more because of his batting average?  They’ve already bought out 2 contracts to set the players free or cheap enough to trade early in the off season to a tune of $56,000,000.  Kevin Pillar will get $521,100 this year.  Next year he goes through arbitration expecting to make over $5,000,000.  Buy out his contract to make room for the 20 year old Short Stop Bo Bichette or a fourth outfielder Anthony Alford.

Blue Jay fans aren’t expecting much this year with so many players coming up from the minor leagues this year & Bichette played well enough to at least platoon short stop with the veteran they signed to a 1 year contract.  Bichette & Vladimir Guerrero Junior should both be in the major league in mid-April!  At the moment Blue Jay fans have no reason to buy a ticket for opening day on Thursday.  I’d go if I could afford to, since I’ve never been to a MLB game.  Out of 162 games, I predict them to win 60-70 games this year, I hope they prove me wrong.  To make the playoffs you need to win at least 95 games.  No playoffs for the Jays this year, lots of young players!

MUSIC NEWS FOR THE DAY

Matthew Bellamy of Muse on radio interview 18:00+ minute LANGUAGE!!!

In Flames were formed in 1990, recorded & released 11 studio albums & have only sold 2.5 million records. I know metal isn’t mainstream music, but that’s ridiculous! What do you see at Regina metal shows that are usually sold out? About 50% of the audience is wearing an In Flames shirt. I’ve bought 5 or 6 albums, the rest I’ve borrowed. I do own 3 In Flames shirts 2 from concerts & 1 from a music store.

Finger Eleven shared it….

I sort of agree. I don’t think the Spider-Man franchise has recovered from campy movies that were each worse than it’s predecessor with Toby McGuire as the lead. The 2 Amazing Spider-man movies were a breath of fresh air I thought. It’s too bad Andrew Garfield quit after 2 movies?

Songs I like, “The Tea Party” I listened to the new release, when they reunited, just didn’t do it for me. I was a fairly casual fan before in the ’90s. I think I do have 5 of their CDs though? They’re really cool to see live all 3 of them going from 1 instrument to another!

FACEBOOK, TWITTER, INSTAGRAM & EMAIL

All of these “social media” sites require one thing, email! You join a social media site & TONS of people totally forget that they have an email. I always check both, why? Because not everyone has a facebook, twitter, instagram, etc. account. Everybody on these sites has an email account! How often does anyone send you an email via one of these sites? I do because some people are a touch stubborn & refuse to use their email. What did you do before the invention of www.myspace.com? You used email probably. I get it, it’s a personal choice. Just remember that not everyone likes these sites. I use facebook mostly for these blogs & a handful of people who have problems with their email account.

This music blog was for those who like similar music as I, & those who don’t want to be on a social media site. If it wasn’t for this blog, I’d be long gone from facebook!

Last night’s baseball game between the Toronto Blue Jays 78W-59L & the Boston Red Sox 65W-72L prior to the game was a nail biter for me. Tied 1-1 into the 10th inning. Then the Toronto Blue Jay bats woke up & everything bounced Toronto’s way to win 5-1 in the end. I was nervous, I may have peed a bit on the couch. (Shh! Don’t tell Kim?)

I know baseball’s not for everyone, I get it. This has been an exciting time for the Blue Jays though! First time the fans have seen meaningful baseball in September since the early ’90s!

Today’s workout was brought to you by Dream Theater’s ‘Images & Words’ album!

Godsmack’s tour for 2015. I’ve never really listened to them other than seeing the “Voodoo” video on Much Music. I didn’t care much for that song so I never paid attention to them.

If Bruno Mars does the half time show at the Super Bowl, I might watch it? Last time I watched was because Prince did the half time show in the rain. I guess I did watch last year when it was Bruno Mars & the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Remember the ’90s when Edgefest would tour Canada? That was AWESOME! Despite me breaking my nose in the mosh pit. During Big Wreck’s set & this particular song.

I had never seen Keith Urban play bass? Can we put him among Geddy Lee (Rush bass/lead vocal) & Les Claypool (Primus bass/lead vocal) now?

Is AC/DC calling it a career?

How to anger Spider-man fans. Either way is fine with me, but it’s not how the original Spider-man comics were written. That’s what will cause the anger of die hard Spider-man fans. He quit Spider-man, so why does he have a say in what happens in future Spider-man movies?

Songs I like. “The Philosopher Kings” Canadian R & B group from the ’90s. Yes, I own 2 of their 1st CDs. Looked up the 3rd on iTunes, & I didn’t like it.
