Music throughout the weekend.  “Foo Fighters”, “Radiohead”, “Testament”, “Tool”, & “Opeth”

 

Friday evening we caught up on some TV from the week.  We seem to be quite busy these days & not watch nearly as much TV as we used to.  With Kim being at work & me being busy at home and moving a bit slower than I’d like in a wheelchair, we watch Ellen Degeneres, another show, & one of us will watch something the doesn’t want to.  I do watch a recorded Late Show with Stephen Colbert the next day while Kim’s at work.

My tummy was a bit off Friday night, so I didn’t sleep great.  Hello couch Saturday morning & all is well!  I slept for about 2 or 3 hours on the couch after finally getting out of bed at about 6 am, slept from 8:40 am until 11:50 am or so & was ready to go.  All we had on was our “niece’s” 6th birthday party at 5 pm.

“Auntie Kim, what’s in the present?”  Nice try but Auntie Kim’s smarter than a 6 year old.  I got cuddles from our 1 ½ year old “nephew” as soon as he saw me.  Kim was only a little “jealous”.

I’m sure our “niece” had a long day.  Presents, cake, kids birthday party followed by family friends birthday party, hide & seek, & what looked like mechanical bull riding on a small bouncy toy cow.  Sort of looked like this sheep….

Always good times with the kids!

Today is a get ready for a, hopefully, busy week ahead.  My eggs & vegetable juice are done.  Now to get hyped up to cram as much exercise & guitar in.  Watch the last Blue Jays game of the year, clear off as much of the DVR as possible & get to bed at a reasonable hour tonight.

 

 

If you like vinyl, here’s a “Nirvana” reissue!

The making of Alter Bridges’ new album “Walk the Sky” out October 18th

YAY!!  It’s official & done Spider-man is back in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Off the record with Alter Bridge!

Sure, rock & metal music are starting to come back.  Both genres aren’t popular enough for the stage of the Super Bowl Half-Time Show…..yet.  I’m not sure Dee Snider of 80s band “Twisted Sister” is the guy to call out the NFL at this point?

All the best to him, he’s been down this road before & it has worked out for him in the past!

New “Jimmy Eat World” album out called “Surviving” on October 18th.

 

BURN THE PRIEST

This is actually “Lamb of God”.  Their first album was released under the name “Burn the Priest”, I’ve never been a fan of that album.  They did release a cover album last year under the name “Burn the Priest”.  This is an album of cover songs that cross the punk/metal influences they have…

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

 

Today’s the final day of the regular season for baseball.  Which means I’m done with the Blue Jays for the year.  There was no hope of them making the playoffs months ago.

162 games per team in a season.  With game left today, the Jays are right where I predicted they’d be 66W-95L.  I figured at the start of the year they’d finish with 65-75 wins this year.  In 2020 or more likely 2021 I figure they’ll be a contender.  Other teams are already calling them a dangerous team.  They’re the 2nd youngest team in baseball for average age of players.  They get a few decent pitchers in the offseason & keep the young guys together, they’ll be fine.  The kids are alright.

Music throughout the weekend.  “Foo Fighters”, “Tool”, & “Testament”

 

We really didn’t do anything this weekend other than clean the place.  I watched a bit of baseball, not much though.  Kim was taking pictures for a few different friends/couples, Saturday & Today.

It was a busy but fulfilling weekend.  I did what I could & stayed out of the way.  Kim’s been on a mission.  It was more than her weekly spring cleaning, it was more like the Energizer Bunny on cocaine doing spring cleaning.  If there was anything with any type of mark on it, it was cleaned or sanded off.

I’m trying to change myself, yet as of 6:25 pm, literally 5 minutes ago, a bunch of other changes jumped into light speed!  Now I feel more than a bit overwhelmed!  *Breathe, breathe, breathe, in through the nose & out through the mouth.  Breathe, breathe, etc…………..

 

I had an entire rant about how much I don’t want to vote & I’ve only voted once in 1998.  With the federal election coming up, I’ve been researching some & I am really considering voting in October.  I agree don’t vote, don’t complain.  Also vote don’t be a sore loser & complain, & don’t complain if you’re choice wins & doesn’t live up to the promises made.  The world is so full of noise, we don’t need anymore!!!

 

Will this story ever end?

 

DAN PATLANSKY

I know nothing about this guy.  I have one acoustic album of his, I’m guessing he has more than that out.  I saw one song live on http://www.youtube.com & had to search him out, for that song alone.  He must have some kind of looping pedal like Ed Sheeran has?  He sounds nothing like Ed Sheeran though.  More of a blues vibe in his music.

WEEKLY EXERCISE TOTAL/BREWSTER/LABOUR DAY WEEKEND/RELEASE DAY!!!!

No such thing as a stupid question!  Feel free to ask me on Facebook or the website!

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

5 day exercise total; 900 leg lifts, 900 crunches, 600 squats, 450 back flexes, 120 pushups, 600 curls (10 pounds on left arm & 7 pounds on right arm), 400 tricep extensions w/5 pound weight, 400 shoulder raises w/5 pound weight,  stretching, & yoga.

I fell asleep to “Jeff Buckley” the album “Grace”

I exercised to “Ozzy Osbourne” the album “Bark at the Moon”

 

Great week for me!  I don’t want to lose my momentum!  This week felt like a big step forward finally.  All of that little stuff definitely helped.  Long road to go yet.

I figured it out, well my new goals for my exercise in the morning only anyways.  Legs, abs, & back 3 days a week.  Weights, arms, stretching, & yoga 2 days a week.  Works up a really good sweat a cold shower is more than welcome afterwards.

I keep track of everything on here in a notebook & add my exercise totals for the day as I go.  I’m trying to cut more sugar out of my diet.  Hopefully just natural sugar & less alcohol.  Kim came home last Saturday with 4 x 500 ml cans of beer & made brownies.  I had a brownie, but no beer or other alcohol.  The small amount of natural sugar in the Bubbly work wonders instead of alcohol.  Figured I’d just stop the alcohol completely for a bit & try to clean the system out.

6 small meals a day & 3-5 liters of water, maybe a cup of black coffee, & a bubbly a day.  Weekends are usually pretty tame on the food intake, unless we’re out with people.

Picked up my acoustic guitar yesterday, felt pretty good after a year.  I didn’t want to put it down.  Eventually I’ll need an amplifier with a pedal for distortion & clean channels.  Hopefully my tuner pedal/noise compressor, 2 effect pedals & cords are still kicking around.  Pretty sure they are.

I think this is the amp I’d get as long as it’s a cheap solid state amplifier, tube amps sound better, but they’re expensive to buy & maintain! Practice amp with a foot switch should suit me well.  I had a Randall half-stack before, I won’t need anything that big or loud, this should do the trick!  I don’t know how much they cost though?  I’m sure it will be at or above $500, start saving now I guess.

I’m really starting to worry about our dog, Brewster, he’ll be 14 in January.  He has a heart murmur & very bad anxiety.  Somebody has to be with him or he freaks out scratching at the door, while barking & whining the entire time.  He’s also started marking when he’s around any other dog.  He’s small, 12 pounds, a Bichon/Shi-tzu cross.  He’s also starting to trip with his back legs.

This might sound odd to some but he’s my kid, my child.  He went to a doggy daycare on Tuesday for the morning.  I just about broke down when he left.  I get it, we don’t get out much because we stay home with him or he stays with Kim’s sister & hubby, Sherry & James, since they don’t have a dog so he won’t mark there.  I get it, but I don’t like the daycare thing.  I just miss him when he’s not here.

That was just an assessment to see how he’d fit in with the other dogs.  Report card was good!  They said he played really well with the other dogs & he is very well mannered.

 

Finally, a Chris Cornell signature Gibson guitar!!!!!

This is the main reason I don’t like to stream music.  This & the fact that I don’t own it.  Actors don’t complain about video streaming services though, just musicians about music streaming.

Lyrics for the “Tool” album out today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WHY dear Lord, WHY?  I gave up on “Disturbed” over a decade ago, I’m not in my mid-20s anymore!

Labour day classic here!  Saskatchewan Roughriders vs. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers!  Always a fun game to attend!  Kim’s not a football fan so her & Brewster stay home.

Pretty easy to say that I see a FLOOD of “Tool” news coming, ASAP, beware!

Spider-man breaking news, new deal between SONY & Disney?  Still a rumour, but possibility of a better outcome for fans.  SPOILER IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN AVENGERS ENDGAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

BIG RELEASE DAY FOR ME

I don’t do reaction videos I like to sit and REALLY concentrate on what I’m listening to the first 3 or 4 times I listen to any new album.  After that I’ll play it whenever if I enjoy it & probably really focus in on it again when I have the time.  2 HUGE album releases for me today!  Big Wreck & a new Tool album after 13 years & roughly 4 months.  These are the singles that were already released.

 

BIG WRECK   …but the sun

 

TOOL   FEAR INOCULUM

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??????

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you.  Slow/Quiet week.  Stretching everyday & many routine appointments to come by the end of July.

 

Instead of Stone Sour giving us photos from the studio from months ago with the album title.  How about a release date for the album Hydrograd?

Mr. Todd Bryanton.  Did I mention he’s a really good guy too!

http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/arts-and-life/entertainment/music/turn-up-the-stereo-418428633.html

 

Albums on the way Linkin Park, Queens of the Stone Age, Royal Blood those are almost set in stone that they’ll be released, & of course Stone Sour.

 

Movies I would like to see this year.

I fell asleep to “Ed Sheeran” the album “X”, followed by “Alter Bridge” the album “The Last Hero”

Monday was a good day at home.  My nerve didn’t really bother me much.  I had an appointment at the physiotherapist & felt bad for the guy.  He knew my lower back was sore, & I’ve had a bulging disc in my spine since high school.  He said my back was tight & gave me more stretches to do.  Unfortunately Monday was pretty much a pain free day, & he didn’t really see a severe problem.  I see him once a week for at least the next 3 weeks.  More/additional stretches & things are finally back on track.  I was tempted to do some exercise today before the appointment but I figured better safe than sorry.  I’m wishful to get rid of this nerve pain sooner than later, at least I can see a light at the end of the tunnel!

I did part of my stretches this morning to “Nothing but Thieves”.  I do them throughout the day, so I’m not done them completely yet.

Don’t feel as though you have to click on every link.

I am EXTREMELY claustrophobic.  In 2008 MRIs & radiation treatments freaked me out.  MRIs are loud, they give you ear plugs before you’re in it.  Then they would slide me in the machine as far as I could go, my shoulders are too broad to go into the MRI machine.  My nurses at the Pasqua Hospital would give me a Benadryl to sleep through it.  The final time in the MRI, I woke up before I was put in the machine, I freaked out.  They gave me a bean bag to toss if something was wrong.  There was always something wrong, me wearing a plastic mask shoved in a tiny hole that I didn’t fit into that well.

Radiation treatments bothered me too.  I had to wear a very tight mask over my face, so tight it would touch my nose & squish it a bit, not fun!

I’m really glad I don’t have to do any of that anymore.  Now I go for a CT scan every year & a half.  Not nearly as cramped as an MRI, much better!

It’s Wednesday, December 7, 2016.  My sciatic nerve is still bugging me, at this point it’s annoying.  Not nearly as painful as it was initially.  Just annoying & preventing me from exercising.  I haven’t exercised in 2 ½ weeks, that really bothers me.  I’m not pretty enough to be a trophy husband!

I thought this would slow down more.  Most groups/musicians seemed to save everything for the last three months of 2016.

 

…and I need to know what Kim & Kanye are up to why?

I’m not a fan of Disturbed, I was when I was in my early 20s.  If you like them that’s great.  They release a cover of “The Sound of Silence” & it’s this HUGE mega hit.  What did it do for me?  It reminded me of the 3 disc boxset I have of Simon & Garfunkel that I bought when I was 17.  With the original version by Simon & Garfunkel & how much I like the original.

 

Yes, I own 4 box sets, Led Zeppelin, Simon & Garfunkel, Nirvana, & Alter Bridge

Alter Bridge released their boxset after their 4th album.  The boxset contains multiple DVDs of interviews with individual band members, a book, all 4 CDs, & all 4 albums on vinyl.  Along with an autographed poster, & my name engraved on the outside of the box.

Happy, happy, joy, joy it’s finally here.  If you follow politics or not you’re likely tired of the 16 yearlong campaign in America.  I don’t like politics, so I’m really glad it’s finally Election Day in the USA.  Just wait, in 3 weeks they’ll start a campaign for 2024.  I hope America has made their decision & are voting today.  I don’t vote here in Canada, but if I could I’d vote in America for this election.  I don’t think America is the greatest country in the world, they are probably the most powerful country in the world though.  “With great power comes great responsibility”

I’d have to agree with Louis on this one!!!!!!

OK America.  Your neighbors to the North are watching & judging you, don’t screw this up?  Forget “Who let the dogs out?”  How about “How did you let Trump get this far?”

 

 

I’m not sure if Ozzy Osbourne should be the poster boy for any kind of drug?  You can’t understand him with any substance in his system.

Did you ever notice how similar these songs are as far as the guitar part goes?

I learned to play both & the guitar part in the verses were variations on the F# chord, that’s what I learned anyways?  Yes, I like both songs.  “Immigrant Song” is easily in my top 5 Led Zeppelin songs

 

I’m loving this new Big Wreck tune!  I hope they announce the album release date soon!

 

Edwin Encarnacion, Toronto Blue Jays’ 1B & DH wants a contract of $25,000,000 each year for 5 years?  Offer him a contract Blue Jays.  There’s no need to save money for Jose Bautista he’s on the down side of his career.
