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

Music from this weekend!  “Greta Van Fleet”, “Nothing But Thieves”, “Live”, “A Perfect Circle”, “Coheed and Cambria”, & “Halestorm”

 

Really quiet here.  I realized on Friday I had some other TV shows recorded on our PVR.  I watched them & one episode of “Making a Murderer” before Kim got home.  She had many TV shows to watch on the PVR, of course we watched “The Elle Degeneres Show” first, as usual.

Saturday I moved from our bed to our couch & kitchen.  Cereal, yogurt & rum, TV (not all at the same time) later on.  Then 4 episodes of “Making a Murderer”.  Kim is sort of watching it too.

Today, Kim got up & went for coffee with Jolene.  The 4 of us met each other in SIAST.  Corey & Jolene were engaged a week or 2 before us & married roughly 4 months after us.  Really good people, great friends, & awesome parents to our “niece” & “nephew”.

Went over to our friends’ place this afternoon, Chris & Laurie’s for an afternoon visit, also really good people, friends, & they also have 2 cool kids.

Now it’s get ready for the week time.

 

Review of “Greta Van Fleet” & “The Struts”.  The Struts’ 2nd album is not actually out until October 26th.

CLASSIC BANDS   PART 1

These are the masterpieces.  Great bands that I like from before my time!

“Queen”

 

“Led Zeppelin”

That’s why ‘Physical Graffiti’ is my favourite LZ album

 

“The Beatles”

I saw ‘Our Lady Peace’ cover this, & now ‘The White’ album is my favourite ‘Beatles’ album!

 

“Stevie Wonder”

Stevie Wonder’s ‘Songs in the Key of Life’ is easily my favourite Stevie Wonder album.  I should just add this song to it…

 

“The Police”

 

“Pink Floyd”

 

“The Jackson 5”

 

“Alice Cooper”

 

The more you share this, the more readers I get.  No, I’m not profiting from this in any way.

Who gets to take an afternoon off to be at a baseball game at 4:00 pm eastern time in N.Y.? It baffles me that they have a decent crowd for games at that time?

So I was watching “The Ellen Degeneres Show” while she interviewed Hillary Clinton. They’re both tired of the campaign, who isn’t? At least when it’s all said & done they get to vote. As Canadians we just get to watch the 3 ring circus called Donald Trump until, hopefully November. If he gets elected I’ll be EXTREMELY worried! Face it, nobody gives a hoot about Canada, we’re pretty much known as that cold country above the USA. I don’t really follow politics at all, & I don’t vote. I’m not telling you who to vote for, I’m saying I’d vote for Hillary Clinton ASAP! If Trump is elected, I’ll suggest to Justin Trudeau that Canada should build a wall at our southern border & make the USA pay for it? Remember Trump, you’re “…really rich…”

Green Day albums ranked

http://loudwire.com/green-day-albums-ranked/

I do like “Uno” which is ranked among the worst albums. Music is VERY subjective. To each their own!

Pretty good despite the lack of a 2nd guitar!

At midnight eastern time tonight the new “Tegan and Sara” album “Boyfriend” will be available for download on iTunes.

In Flames shared it……

Tremonti’s on the road

“Landed in Frankfurt! I have no idea how the crew is going to fit all of our gear into this tiny trailer, hope they are good at Tetris!”

Let’s see what the kid thinks of “Dust”

For what it’s worth I prefer “Cauterize” over “Dust” both are really good though, if you’re into this type of music.

Well, look at that another article, Q & A, with Mark Tremonti?? Who’d have thought.

Chris Cornell celebrates 25 year anniversary of “Temple of the Dog”. FANTASTIC album!!!!!!

http://loudwire.com/chris-cornell-celebrates-return-temple-of-the-dog-masters/

New band alert, well I’ve never heard of them? “Stitched up Heart” borderline metal if you like “Halestorm” and/or “The Pretty Reckless”, this is worth checking out. First full length album available for preorder on iTunes. Release date of June 17. There is also a single & a 3 song EP on iTunes available now.

http://loudwire.com/stitched-up-heart-monster-video/

I went to iTunes to preorder this album. We now have an “Apple Music” account & now iTunes is screwed up again. I search for something I’ve bought in “My Music” & it takes me to the “Apple Music” site? How I wish Steve Jobs was still alive!

Oh, Jimmy Fallon with Adam Sandler.

EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL

I fell asleep to “Tremonti” the album “Dust”, the new “Rob Zombie”, then part of “Tremonti” again. They both hit my iTunes at 9:30 pm!

I exercised to ”Stevie Wonder” Greatest Hits album at least 5 of them are from the album “Songs in the Key of Life”

Exercise total for the week; 40 push ups, 120 leg lifts, 120 squats, 6000 crunches.

All of those exercises make a HUUUUUUUGE difference when I go walking with my walker & Kim.

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

Like I said, surviving, surviving stage 4 brain cancer doesn’t come with a “How to…” guide, so hold my beer & watch this! Epic or Fail……………we’ll see!

No plans set in stone for the weekend. Just a few balls in the air. Looks to be quite tame though. We’re getting old so that’s not a bad thing. Last night we were just sitting watching TV & out of the blue, Brewster grabs my forearm & decides he wants to “wrestle”. I try to put on my slippers to get on the floor. He just wouldn’t stop. He’s up on the couch still attacking my arm, while I’m trying to grab my shoes. He’s funny, he did that twice last night. Quiet 1 second & then full on “Let’s wrestle..NOW!” I’m the wrestle/play person, Kim’s the curl up & cuddle person. If she’s at work, he occasionally curls up with me. Little guy makes laugh hysterically!

Selfies, WHY? I don’t have a cell phone. If I did it would stay home & be used as a home PHONE! If I go out of town I’d bring it with me for emergency PHONE calls. I don’t enjoy photos of myself, so what gives me the right to take a photo of you? If I have to get a cell, I’ll use it for nothing more than a phone.

If you say so???

Nope, no I don’t

I’ve got the new Rob Zombie album & after 2 listens, I quite enjoy it! Less danceable than his previous solo work!

I’m not a fan of his demeanor either.

CANCER/GRAMMY AWARDS

I fell asleep to “Anthrax” all on shuffle!

I exercised to ”Paramore” all 4 albums on shuffle!

My brain cancer diagnoses was in 2008. The distance from Tuesday, February 5th 2008 makes my cancer seem very insignificant sort of like “Ah, what the heck was that?”. Sure I’m in a wheelchair, I can’t drive, & I have a patch over my left eye. No big deal to me! I can laugh about MY cancer, I don’t laugh about anyone else’ though. It’s something I hope nobody will ever have to go through or deal with. Me? I’m alive, I’ve got this & if I need help, I’ve got lots of great people to help me. Sure I’ll have some lasting effects from brain cancer, so I adjust to do a task in a different way.

It’s not the ’90s anymore I guess, time for me to grow up sort of……………….nope that won’t work. I’m 36 and set in my ways. The Grammy Awards weren’t terrible. There were some artists that I liked. Bruno Mars, “1989” by Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Lionel Richie, Lady Ga Ga’s tribute to David Bowie, Pentatonix, Stevie Wonder, Alice Cooper, the tribute to Lemmy Kilmister & of course Dave Grohl was there! Lamb of God was nominated for their 6th Grammy, I don’t know or really care if they won? Grammy Awards that have been won really don’t dictate what I’m going to “purchase” or “stream”. Yes I still purchase the odd CD & purchase albums from iTunes.

Sorry, I’ve tried to listen to “Guns n’ Roses”, I just can’t get into them. Somewhere here there’s a purchased CD of “Appetite for Destruction”. It hasn’t seen the light of day for quite sometime. They’re all obviously good at what they do & likely busted their butts to achieve their success, just not for me. It sometimes takes me a few years to enjoy an album if I dismiss it upon first listen. I bought “Appetite for Destruction” in 2000. It’s 2016, and no, I’m still not a fan.

“Halestorm” cover “Eagles of Death Metal” in Paris

The new “Tremonti” single is coming soon!!!!!!

As a fan of “Muse” I wasn’t big on this latest release? Musically, yes, lyrically, no.

http://loudwire.com/muse-best-rock-album-drones-2016-grammy-awards/

Muse are on tour & I missed them, again. They’re back in Europe finishing their tour. They did have some Canadian dates but I missed them. I don’t even remember where they were, probably too “…..far away…”?

I thought “Lady Ga Ga” did a fantastic David Bowie tribute!

http://consequenceofsound.net/2016/02/lady-gaga-does-david-bowie-proud-with-theatrical-show-stopping-grammys-medley-watch/

I do like Taylor Swift’s “1989” album

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/taylor-swift-kendrick-lamar-win-big-at-2016-grammys-20160216

I love James Corden’s carpool karaoke

http://www.rollingstone.com/tv/news/watch-justin-bieber-james-corden-carpool-karaoke-after-grammys-20160216

I really liked the tribute to Lemmy Kilmister as well. I thought I’d see Matt Sorum (Guns n’ Roses former drummer) die during this performance?

http://loudwire.com/lemmy-kilmister-son-he-set-great-example-hard-working-musicians/

I guess “Ghosts” won “Best Metal performance”? Not “Lamb if God”? Oh, well. I didn’t even know “Sevendust” was nominated for this as well.

http://www.revolvermag.com/news/watch-ghost-accept-the-grammy-for-best-metal-performance.html

Not my favourite “Fall Out Boy” album.

Just to clear the air on the Toronto Blue Jays. I’m pretty sure every Jays fan has a suggestion as to what they’d do to the roster. I would trade $20,000,000 32 year old Troy Tulowitzki for a needed back up Catcher & some prospects, if that trade is available? You put a young guy at Short Stop (who’s talent will likely be wasted sitting on the bench) & you have 2 other utility infielders that can fill the void at 2B in the meantime until Devon Travis can play (expected back in May). I have nothing against Tulowitzki, his bat & defense are incredible. At the very least I hope they make Devon Travis earn the 2B spot from Goins. If the Blue Jays didn’t have Ryan Goins I wouldn’t bother giving up Tulowitzki. It just saves money for Bautista & Encarnacion, who’s contracts are up at the end of the year & will be looking for a final contract in the neighbour hood of $20,000,000 each, “Prime Time Sports with Bob McCowen” has echoed this many times, has anybody mentioned this to president Mark Shapiro or GM Ross Atkins? I’d call in to the show on Mondays or Fridays if my voice was better, but oh well. Just to ask if this has been mentioned to the president or general manager? If not you teach Tulowitzki to play 1B & trade Encarnacion or let him walk at the end of the year? I just hate the idea of not playing Ryan Goins everyday. Bob McCowen came up with the last idea. Only 6 days until pitchers & catchers report to spring training in Florida!!!!!

Record of the year. How could it not be? This song sounds best a maximum volume aka 11!

Pentatonix & Stevie Wonder at the Grammy Awards

Sorry, I’m long winded, I enjoy writing. I used to write song lyrics, now I write a blog. When I would write lyrics for a song, 4 of us would record a demo of the music. I’d put that on my iPod & take 2 weeks roughly to write lyrics, then at least another week to name the song. My brother gave me crap when I’d take so long to name a song “CHRIS, WHY? HURRY UP AND NAME IT ALREADY!!!!”

I had 3 partially written songs that I re-worked to fit the music. Other than that, the lyrics I wrote took a while. I write these posts the same way. I write a bit, then figure out a title, only it needs to have a title in a few hours not a few weeks, I write “Under Pressure” see, that just popped up.

According to Rolling Stone, Kendrik Lamar, stole the show at the Grammy Awards. Song inside the link.

ELECTION DAY….IT’S YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE & MINE NOT TO VOTE

Today’s workout was brought to you by the letter “E”, as in Eve 6

Have fun voting Canada! Then you can whine & complain about why the person you voted for can’t do what they promised.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver on the Canadian election. LANGUAGE!!!!

I like “Walk off the Earth” their originals & their very unique videos of cover songs!

I think I should watch some NHL since the team I cheer for (Montreal) has yet to lose a game (6W-0L) & the basement dwellers (Toronto Maple Leafs) are in 7th place in the same division out of 8 teams (1W-3L-1Overtime game) Bahahahaha!

Yes, I bought “Coheed & Cambria” album ‘The Colour Before the Sun’ & “Pentatonix” album ‘Pentatonix’

This makes 5 albums I’ve purchased this month, with one more to go. Ian Fletcher Thornley’s solo album. After that album is released, there aren’t any release dates that I know of for me?

I was waiting for Kim in our vehicle & decided to turn on the radio. I don’t listen to the radio usually, & it’s never Regina’s Rock Station, it’s light rock or Jack FM where they play it all. I heard “Chromeo” & turned it up to 11!

22 years ago Pearl Jam released the album ‘VS.’

Taylor Swift gets interviewed by Ryan Adams who recently covered Taylor’s album “1989”

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/see-ryan-adams-taylor-swift-discuss-1989-songwriting-20151019

It will be a difficult year for me to do a Top 10 list of the albums released this year. I already have a list of 22 albums this year, only the Muse album got old fast. The music is good, the actual lyrics…………………………………..not so much. So that narrows the field to 21 & the year’s not over yet. I’ll do away with “My Morning Jacket” as well. Great band live but the studio albums really pale compared to a live show. That brings it down to 20, I guess I’ll have to do it by process of elimination.

Songs I like, “Stevie Wonder” I have “Songs in the Key of Life” & a “Greatest Hits” album.

2 REASONS I KNOW SCANDAL IS FICTIONAL

Today’s workout was brought to you by the letter “S”, as in Stevie Wonder’s Greatest Hits & “Songs in the Key of Life” on shuffle….

What are the 2 things that tell me “Scandal” is fictional? The first is that it makes politics seem interesting. The second & biggest reason is they use cell phones…………..AS TELEPHONES! Nobody is constantly looking down at their phone? They TALK TO PEOPLE!

2 episodes of the Rock It Out Blog from Monday

I have never been a fan of the ’80s hair metal movement.

Mike Portnoy (former drummer of Dream Theater) left the band to be in his new band ‘The Winery Dogs’

http://loudwire.com/the-winery-dogs-oblivion-exclusive-video-premiere/

All he got for “Threatening to kill” someone, & drug possession was “home detention”. Maybe I should threaten to kill someone so I can stay home & do nothing. Who’s with me, & who needs a vacation? Should we binge watch something on Netflix?

http://loudwire.com/acdc-drummer-phil-rudd-loses-court-appeal/

Sound like Josh Homme from ‘Queens of the Stone Age’

This is from the album they’re trying to sound like. I’m guessing they became a more well known band because Dave Grohl played drums on the entire album & played drums live with them when he could? That’s how I found out about them.

“The Agonist” release this year is my favourite of the 4 they have released! LANGUAGE!

Rock It Out Blog listening party LANGUAGE!!!!!

I don’t have a camera for a reason. I don’t like being told to “Come on squeeze in, be in the photo, it will be fun”. Well if it will be fun I’ll completely change my mind……..NOT! I don’t like being in photos, if I had a camera & was taking photos of others, that would really come off as flat out wrong! I loathe being in photos, especially now with an eye patch. I’ve heard people say “Take off the eye patch & stand up”. Why? Much easier said than done & even if that wasn’t the case, I’d still have no desire to be photographed, just leave me out of the photo & I’ll play nice.

Songs I like, “Seether” they’re OK, I don’t really listen to them much. Does the first song remind you of another band? I think I saw them years ago at The Distrikt on their first tour? I could be wrong? I didn’t pay for these albums or download them. I got them from a guy, who knows a guy, who knows a guy, who has a cousin, who knows a guy that had them.

I’m not angry in any way, I know print doesn’t always come across in the proper tone. 11 people looked at the site out of, what is 117 to 120 subscribers I know 2 or 3 have doubled between facebook & email. That’s just underwhelming. That’s why it’s meant to be interactive, music has been something really meaningful for me since I joined the school band in grade 6, I’m 35 years old now. I understand that what I listen to is not necessarily what others want to hear. If 11 people read this a day to me this is for me alone.

I know that the cool peeps in Albania came to the site. Yes, I know a family in Albania! I get a world map to see what country has read this however many times. Can’t see who from that country has read it, I just know how many times it has been viewed in that country.

Josh Homme (singer of Queens of the Stone Age is back with The Eagles of Death Metal). Filling the hiatus Queens of the Stone Age are on at the moment. Yes he plays drums for EODM. Yes that Dave Grohl at the bar & Jack Black as the bartender.

Very interesting article about the music industry. It’s 9 pages I’ve only read the first 2. I’ve bookmarked it to read the rest later. Since I’m hooked on reading it after the first paragraph & speaking about the Napster lawsuit with Metallica that was filed 6 months prior to Linkin Parks debut album, “Hybrid Theory”.

Jimmy Page details final Led Zeppelin’s reissues. Once I became a fan it was all about the “Physical Graffiti” album!
http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/jimmy-page-previews-final-zeppelin-reissues-closes-band-vault-20150616

I like ‘Black Sabbath’, but ‘Queen’ & ‘Led Zeppelin’ are my favourite active groups during the ’70s. Queen material from the ’80s was not as good as the ’70s material. More miss than hit for me.

Prince & Stevie Wonder preform together at the White House!!!!! AWESOME!!!!

Great & all, I want to own my music not subscribe to a radio station for my entire life. I’m only 35 and I expect to hit 80 at the least? iTunes is really good, I just don’t like how the money is distributed. I don’t have the physical space for vinyl albums or even CDs at this point. CDs have dropped in price significantly to keep pace with iTunes.

As far as the subject on “The Simpsons” go, I stopped watching in my very early teens but they’re still around. I’d rather have WB cartoons like the “Bugs Bunny & Tweety Show” around on re-runs.

Comedians saying the world is too politically correct. I can see both sides, yes it might offend you? If it does don’t watch it? Seems simple to me. A lot of it also doesn’t need to be said, so in that case are you going to judge a person on how they express themselves? In the end it’s very subjective.

I have no sympathy for apple. Nobody needs another streaming music site. You’ve got a really good idea with iTunes, it just needs to be revamped $1.50 per album download to the label & $1.50 to Apple. Then $0.00-$7.00 to the artist. $3.00-$10.00 for 1 album. That’s more than 50% off of what the price for a CD was? Sounds good to me? Anybody at Apple or the label going to come up with music ideas?

When these guys got my attention I thought I’d be a fan. I don’t mind the music, but it just rubs me the wrong way?

Meh! They mention Cherry Cola in here.

I need to slow down on my music purchasing on iTunes. But I am curious as to when the next “Tremonti”, “Alter Bridge” & the solo album by Myles Kennedy is being released? I’m assuming “Tremonti’s” other album he recorded while in studio will be released in the first half of next year? He’d have time to tour that album while Myles Kennedy works on his solo album I’ve been hearing about for the last 4 years?

Songs I like. “Jack Johnson” Our first dance at our wedding was “Better Together” by Jack Johnson! Yes, I’ve made “Banana Pancakes” about 3 times.
