My mother has seen more than her fair share of people having cancer, especially since I was diagnosed in 2008.  Her mother died of breast cancer in December of 1999.  Since my diagnosis she’s seen many people not survive.  Our family friend who she met at work, our friend’s mother, my grandfather, my aunt, and another friend she met at work, & unfortunately her cousin has recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer recently as well.  I survived, I’m fine wheelchair & an eye patch, but I’m here!  I don’t think she needs anymore deaths to witness?  That list of people is more than enough!

People worry about me, too much sometimes.  When I eat, I HOOVER my food.  Sometimes I choke.  I had a rough day of chocking on food, & I was with my family.  I coughed & choked a few times.  I was fine & everyone was concerned.  I get it, that’s fine, annoying but fine.  This happens 1 or 2 times a week.  Everyone freaks out & in the end I’m OK.  Do people know that I also cough & “choke” at lunch when there’s nobody around?  I’m fine, please don’t worry about me.  If I hadn’t had cancer, I’d still be OK & people wouldn’t worry as much about me.  Hold my beer & watch this!

 

Lamb of God isn’t metal?

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

 

I tried to learn these 3 songs before I was diagnosed.  Too difficult for me!

Yet, these 3 songs were pretty easy to learn?????????

If I can’t play it or play it on guitar while singing, it doesn’t happen.

 

I just can’t get into “Superjoint”, & I’ve tried listening to it.  Song inside the link.

“Alter Bridge” behind the song “Cradle to the Grave”

 

It happened!  Parents tricked their kids by pretending to eat their treats!

 

Consequence of Sound review of “Doctor Strange”

 

Masterpiece Review of “Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers” album “Damn the Torpedoes”

Yes, that’s producer Jimmy Iovine who was on “American Idol” helping the contestants before they performed their song.  Question is, Do you think he’d let Tom Petty through on “American Idol” or Bob Dylan for that matter?  I don’t!

 

I guess keyboard players have their place.  Usually they’re in the back & not seen much.  Too bad Elton John & Billy Joel aren’t included on this list?  Neither is the dude from Foo Fighters or Pearl Jam though.

LANGUAGE!!!  The keyboard is mixed at the front of the mix at one point though!

 

The Chicago Cubs won the World Series last night for the first time since 1908.  Three World Series wins 1907, 1908, & now 108 years later 2016 Champions.  CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL CHICAGO CUBS FANS!!!!!!!!!  Long wait for that one!!

 

This could be really good or absolutely terrible.  Seems to be par for the course with Revolver, for me there’s usually far more miss than hit.

Robin Williams & Bobby McFerrin.  I’ve never heard this?

WEEKEND UPDATE

Quiet weekend here again.  Stayed home Friday evening to watch the Blue Jays beat up on the visiting N.Y. Yankees 9-0.  Kim hit the hay at 9:20 pm, she thought the clock said 10:20 pm.  I went to bed around 10:00 pm & woke up 4 times before 5:30 am then fell asleep until 10:00 am.  Watched an afternoon baseball game Blue Jays won 3-0.  Kim was babysitting for our friends.  Dad & I opted to stay warm & dry instead of going to the Saskatchewan Roughrider game.  Dad picked me up so mom, dad, & I could watch the game in the basement in his home theater.  That’s 3 wins & a 2 game winning streak for the home team.

Sunday was the third of four games in Toronto, featuring the Jays against the N.Y. Yankees.  3 wins & only 7 games left in the regular season.  Which is a little sad for me.  It’s fall & our 8 million TV shows are coming back on the air.  The rest of this week I’ll have to watch Blue Jays in :30, but come Friday, Saturday & Sunday, I’ll be parked on the couch watching the 3 last games in Boston against the Boston Red Sox.

I love this “A Perfect Circle” song!!!!!!!!!!!!!  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

13 kings of stage banter.  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I’d be more impressed if they could do 1 show with clean language?  The bands I was a part of just didn’t do that, other than to each other during a rehearsal, in private.

This was EVERYWHERE in baseball land today.  Very sad & only 24 years old.  The Miami Marlins did the right thing & cancelled their game today.

Kim gives me a $50 limit on iTunes a month.  Beginning September 30th all the way to November 18th I’ll be receiving 9 albums.  5 of them are coming in October?  Insane?  I like having a variety of music, but MY GOODNESS!

 

September 30th “Opeth” & “The Agonist”

 

October 7th “Alter Bridge”, Green Day”, & “Sum 41”

 

October 21st “The Pretty Reckless” & “Jimmy Eat World”

 

November 11th “In Flames”

 

November 18th “Highly Suspect” LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I also hear “Big Wreck” is in the studio & have released a sound bite of a new song, so who knows when that album is coming out.  “Paramore” I believe is in the studio as well, I don’t think they’re as far into the recording process a “Big Wreck” but I’m not sure?

 

I don’t think I’ll have time for a blog tomorrow?  Busy day here!  I’ll catch you on Tuesday.
