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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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 “Paul Simon” the album “Graceland”, “Pearl Jam” the album “Yield”, & finally “Ozzy Osbourne” the album “Blizzard of Oz”

 

I exercised to “Odds” the album “Nest”

How did I deal with being physically disabled, very bad, I felt useless & I wanted to hurt anyone I could.  I wanted everyone to feel as bad as I did.  After a few months & a stern talking to from my brother, parents, & wife I finally snapped out of my rut, got over it, apologized to those I had hurt privately & publically, & moved on.  All of it was heavy baggage that got too heavy because of my poor reaction.  I was just angry at the world.  So I dealt with anger & depression.  The worst struggle with it I’ve ever had with it.

If you’re ever considering suicide or if you’re in a rut, please talk to someone that is more than willing to listen.  Please don’t ever think of yourself as a burden to anyone.  You’ll be surprised at the number of people you’ve had a positive effect on & how many people love you & care about your wellbeing.  I’ve never called a suicide prevention hotline, but they’re there & more willing to listen. 1-877-4747 if you prefer talking to a stranger about any type of mental illness, be it a friend, family member, or yourself don’t hesitate to call.  The sooner you let it out & talk to someone, the sooner you can relax & get the burden off of your back.

I got lucky, I’ve talked with my high school guidance counselor, university counselor, social workers, my doctor, a psychiatrist, my wife, & my parents.  Now I’m OK & not embarrassed to talk about it.  I used to be & it was a topic I tried to distance myself from.  Don’t be ashamed about it 1 in 5 Canadians have some type of mental illness.  I’m on medication for my depression, don’t be embarrassed if you’re told to do the same.  A lot of mental illness’ can be caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain.  The proper medication can be quite useful.

 

Think of it this way, if all of that doesn’t make sense.  If you have the flu, cold or anything like that, you probably go see a doctor, right?  So if you’re dealing with any type of mental illness, more serious than a flu or cold, go talk to a doctor.  Maybe you’ll be referred to someone more knowledgeable on the subject, but you’ve started a conversation about whatever you’re dealing with so just see it through now & meet them half way if needed.

When I’m talking about mental illness, it does not just mean depression.  It includes OCD, ADD, ADHD, etc.

Dear Corey Taylor & Chad Kroeger,

Get over the feud already!  Will this matter in 20 years?  NO!  Your music does not sound comparably similar at all.  Who’s better?  It’s subjective!  Your devious plan worked!  Nickelback released an album, you 2 started a feud, and Stone Sour released an album.  Both albums hit number 1.

Sincerely,

Chris (a music fan)

A new single from Trivium!  Just the single, no album from what I can tell

Since it is but a single, I bought it & attached it to another Trivium album or I’d never hear it.  I still have issues with “The Crusade” & “Shogun” although many people call “Shogun” Trivium’s best album.

 

Wow, 1 week in the White House & ‘The Mooch’ is gone

The Foo Fighters’ “Concrete & Gold” album had better be a really good one or I can see Paramore’s “After Laughter” taking multiple Grammy Awards home.  I don’t really put much stock into award shows, but some are fun to watch.  Believe it or not, I know “Lamb of God” has won a Grammy & have been nominated several times.

Pentatonix new single “Dancing on my Own”.  Single only $1.29 on iTunes.  Bought it & attached to their full length album.  If I left it as a single, I’d never hear it!  I listen to albums, not a jumble of songs.

The average age for a kid to get a cell phone is 6 years old.  Why does a 6 year old need a cell phone?  I’m 37, I had a cell phone for a year 27-28 years old.  The cell phone didn’t save my life, at least not that I know of?  If celebrities like Ed Sheeran & Louis C.K. can survive without a cell phone, I can too!

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.

I fell asleep to “Halflives” the album “Empty Rooms”

I exercised to “I Mother Earth” the album “Scenery & Fish”.  Close to 8 minutes long!  Perfect for my planking with rest periods & then lying on the floor exhausted.

100 leg lifts, 100 crunches, 50 one day then 60 pushups the rest of the week, 5 minutes of planking & 20 back flexes a day.  400 leg lifts, 400 crunches, 80 back flexes, 20 minutes of planking, & 50+60+60+60=230 pushups over 4 days.

Now I need to get my butt moving on some cardio, said nobody in their right mind.  If Kim & I get up & just go walking with my walker, or to the recumbent exercise bike, first thing in the morning on either Saturdays or Sundays, I’ll do it!  I want to get up & get it over with, then start my day without the constant thought that I have to squeeze in some cardio.

I really don’t take MY cancer too serious now.  Whenever Kim takes me to any type of cancer appointment, in my head I try to downgrade it……..I’m fine & I’m alive, & I laugh at MY cancer.  I don’t ever need to think of it as this terrible life changing event.  I go for a blood test, needles don’t bother me, I turn to Kim while the nurse is putting the band around my arm & say to Kim “Hold me Kimmy, pwease”? Then all 3 of us get a little chuckle!  If you can’t laugh at yourself, how do you intend to laugh at anything?

I increased my pushups by 10 every day from 40 to 50, 2 sets of 25, at some point I lost my mind?  As of Tuesday, I now do 40 back flexes & 60 pushups (in 3 sets of 20).  Wow I’m out of shape.  On the other hand, I was wearing a T-Shirt the other day that was tight in the arms & shoulders.  Maybe this exercising is doing something?

Are Guns n’ Roses recording a new album?

https://www.alternativenation.net/guns-n-roses-original-new-album-plan-will-surprise-you/

I’ve got 1987 debut album “Appetite for Destruction” honestly I’ve listened to it all the way through once.  It’s in the closet behind me, not even on my iTunes or iPod.  I have no desire to listen to it.  Whoever announces at the Roughrider games found a different song to play before the game the last 2 seasons, but this year, in a new stadium, they went back 30 years to play “Welcome to the Jungle” again?

I go to the Saskatchewan Roughrider games for one reason only.  Not the music, overpriced food & beverages, the half time show, etc.  I go to watch a football game.  I must be a sucker for punishment?  I watch the Riders & the Toronto Blue Jays.  Neither team will be winning anything this year, despite me yelling/coaching from my couch or seat at the Rider home games.

Well, I’m done for the week.  I have a Toronto Blue Jay game to watch in ½ hour.  I guess 65,000 people in Boston have the day off?  Now the blog will go back to Sunday, Wednesday, & Friday.

Thursday evening Kim came home & we pretty much left immediately to see “Spiderman: Homecoming”.  FANTASTIC movie!  I know comic book movies aren’t for everyone, but I’m all in for the Marvel & DC comic book movies!  “300” & “300 Rise of an Empire” were really good as well.  I couldn’t get into “Sin City” or any other graphic novel movies though.

 

That was our Thursday evening.  Friday morning we woke up & weren’t sure what to do with ourselves.  I had 3 things that needed to be done.  We went out in the late afternoon.  I had my Roughrider jersey from Andy Fantuz fixed, Kim picked up a few groceries we needed for supper.  Brewster & I went along but stayed in the vehicle.  He loves going for a “car ride”.  A “ride” in the summer means he gets to drool/pant all over my arm until we’re somewhere I can roll down the window for him!

Friday, after the few errands were done, we just stayed home.  I watched the Toronto Blue Jays actually win a game & Kim put the house back together after a morning of cleaning.  She doesn’t just clean, she does “spring cleaning” every weekend.  Everything is 10 feet away from where it’s supposed to be so she can clean underneath where it was!  I just try to stay out of her way!

Saturday we went over to my parents place for some BBQ ribs after an afternoon in the backyard, with my mother & aunt.  I found out the hard way that Molson original 16 in a can is a wee bit too carbonated for me, I switched to rum & coke!

Sundays are pretty quiet here.  Kim’s got a few things left on the grocery list.  I made a juice for the week.  Peeled all remaining carrots to BBQ them then keep them handy in the fridge.  BBQ carrots & onion are commonly a vegetable for supper or some type of broccoli dish, I love broccoli!  I’m in the middle of a Blue Jays game at the moment.

That’s our weekend here.  Remember it will be quiet on the blog page until Thursday again, I’ll catch you then!

 

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

 

Another reason for me to NOT buy terrible overpriced Molson beer at the new Mosaic Stadium!  $9 for a regular size can of Pilsner, Coors, or Coors Light……..NOT HAPPENING!

http://regina.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=1167315&binId=1.1165847&playlistPageNum=1#_gus&_gucid=&_gup=Facebook&_gsc=8qmzzbP

No Bushwakker’s or Rebellion?!?  No more beer for me at the new Mosaic stadium!  This no local beer really bugs me since the Saskatchewan Roughriders are a “community owned” team.  I don’t typically drink beer at a game, but lots of others do, & most of them don’t seem to care what it is as long as there is alcohol in it.  This “no community craft beer” rule is a laughable situation.  “Kick the little guy while we let the big corporate Molson Brewing control all & reap the benefits by charging our customers 300% than the store bought price”

If I really need to, I’ll get drunk at home, on craft beer & pay less while doing so.

FYI, I’ve only seen Molson Canadian being consumed by those that have just turned the legal age to drink alcohol or at a football game.  It’s like Fosters beer in Australia, Australians don’t drink much Foster’s beer from what I hear?

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.

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…..”

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