450 Curls w/ 20 pound dumb bells

250 Shoulder raises/Chest presses w/ 10 pound dumb bells

500 Crunches

500 Leg lifts

200 Squats

280 Back flexes

1:05 hour of yoga over 2 days

 

I guess I should clear a few things up to begin.  I’m reluctant to put my playing on social media since I posted a polite comment on a site a few months ago.  Instantly I had 7-10 people making fun of my iPatch.  Well “the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate……and I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake.  Shake it off”.

I thought that was a smart pop album.

In Canada we have an extra day off in each remaining month of the year.  September has Labour day, October has Canadian Thanksgiving, November 11th is Rememberance day & then Christmas holidays.  Kim & I  don’t have any extra days off.  Even with 5 days off last weekend we both had a day of “What should I do with myself?”

We’ll call that as house cleaning done for now!

Monday, Wednesday, & Friday are the days I do crunches, leg lifts, back flexes, & squats.  I’m starting to dislike those days.  Just thinking the entire time about how much I don’t want to be doing those exercises.  I do them anyways & get them out of my way.

I hadn’t had coffee or tea since May 19th.  Kim came home on Monday with a mocha-frapacino for me.  I drank it, with all of that sugar & flavouring it really loses it’s appeal for me.  I used to drink the darkest Columbian roast I could find.  I have a high resting pulse, so coffee isn’t really even desired.

Also as of May 19th I’ve only had 2 alcoholic beverages.  One to celebrate the return of Blue Jay baseball & one while watching a Q & A regarding guitars on www.youtube.com.

I decided shortly after Tuesday’s post that I’d make things a little harder for me & learn the lead intro to this Trivium song.  That might take some time.

If Led Zeppelin tries to sue me for playing one of their songs, you’ll help me out wont you?  You might have to.  I’m posting a video of me on guitar playing Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir”, well an abreviated version of it.  Many mistakes but I’m camera shy, actually I hate any photo, audio, or video of me.  It’s on Facebook with all of the flaws recorded since people asked?  Played it 5 times before recording it error free, camera comes with the mistakes. If you wanna hear more, I’m home & happier at home than without a cell phone in my face.  Being on video while playing guitar was the most depressing/joy sucking experience I’ve been through since I was suicidal from 2009-2011.

I was going to post videos of me playing Alter Bridge, Megadeth, Nothing but Thieves, Pantera, a few Metallica songs, a few Alice in Chains songs, many Foo Fighters songs, a few more Led Zeppelin songs, Pearl Jam, I Mother Earth, The Beatles, Eric Clapton, etc.  I’ll take cancer again before I video myself playing guitar again.  Audio is fine, I just don’t listen to it much at all.

With everything being digital and everyone having a camera with them all of the time, that is DEFINITELY a reason I stay indoors.  Not many people call our land line outside of spam calls.  Did people suddenly forget they can talk to someone instead of texting?  I don’t see myself getting a cell phone until land lines are eliminated.

You’ve got the video, I get “Red Light Fever” – Taylor Hawkins, drummer for Foo Fighters from one of Taylor’s albums “Taylor Hawkins & The Coattail Riders”.  I got the video done & out of the way.  Nobody takes anyone by their word anymore, lots of people need video proof, BUMMER!

Here are the specs & a photo of what should arrive on August 21st.

S2 Custom 22 Semi-Hollow Body Guitar w/Gig Bag - McCarty Sunburst

You won’t see me playing it.  There will be a photo on here & a reaction video on the Facebook site.  This will be my only guitar with a tremolo system aka a whammy bar.

This is the guitar I’m saving for & hope to order in the spring.  Minimum of 90 days before it gets here.

https://www.prsguitars.com/index.php/electrics/model/s2_mccarty_594

S2 McCarty 594 Electric Guitar with Gigbag - Whale Blue

An amplifier upgrade/replacement & I will be all set for many years or Kim might hurt me……she knows karaté!

I can promise you there will be a photo of each of these guitars as I get them, with a reaction/opening of the gig bag video on the Facebook page.  Eventually I’ll post a photo of my guitars all together.

I’ve seen the minimum price for a PRS guitar all the way to a bolt-on neck price for a PRS.  Core & Private Stock go to the highest price point.  The least expensive SE PRS retail in Canada is $780 + GST (Government Sales Tax in Canada of 5% followed by whatever the Provinces Provicial Sales Tax is).  I’m looking at 2 S2 models just above that price point of between $1980-2400 retail, tax in Saskatchewan amounts to 11%.  A bolt-on neck PRS retails for $4,899-$5100.  I’m assuming a Core model would retail for $5500.  A Private Stock would likely be a minimum of $5500 & up.  With a Private Stock PRS you get to go to the factory in Maryland & pick out what type of wood you want for each part of the guitar (neck, body, top, binding),  the electronics they offer, the body style (solid, semi-hollow, hollow body, or acoustic), the colour & finish.  I used to say my limit on a guitar would be $5000, it’s not anymore the S2 line is by far my limit.

I play guitar a LOT.  Even with baseball on I’ll watch a game while practicing on my acoustic.  So for fun I tallied up the amount of time I spent practicing guitar Tuesday & Wednesday.  It’s quarantine time & I don’t watch much TV other than Blue Jay baseball & CFL football (I’m not sure when football starts).  The tally over 2 days comes to roughly 11:30 hours.  That’s pretty standard honestly.

My main electric guitar changes daily.  It’s more to do with what I’m playing followed by more practice on the acoustic if it’s not an acoustic song.  This is a little further down the list for me to relearn…

It’s INCREDIBLE guitar players like this that humble me.

This website wants me to show advertisements so I can get paid for this.  I’m not about to do that.  I don’t watch commercials, so I’m not going to make you watch them.  Also, I might not like the product advertised, another BIG reason I’ll keep this website commercial free.

I see a lot of reaction videos on www.youtube.com of people just going insane for the emotion & musicianship in this song.  I agree it’s FANTASTIC song, that was released in 2007.  I don’t understand why I’m seeing reaction videos from 2019?

Well just wait until 2031 when they react to this song that was released last year.

Well look at Big Wreck’s new live video!

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

I fell asleep to “Jimmy Eat World” the album “Bleed American”

I exercised to “The Beatles” the album “Number 1” all of their songs that hit number 1.

 

I didn’t get to bed as early as I had hoped Sunday night.  Monday I slept in later than I’d have liked.  I like to get up & get things done ASAP.  It tends to get warm in here the later I get up to exercise.  Exercising at noon is something I never do for a reason.  I’m typically done my exercise by 10-11:00 am, if not earlier.  I usually get up by 8:00 am at the latest, some days I’m partially done my exercises when Kim heads off to work at 7:30 am.

Unfortunately we already have snow here as of Sunday evening but it didn’t stick around luckily!

Kim’s teeth will be finished in October.  Then Brewster will have some tests done, followed by some medication.

We’re looking at buying our dream/forever home but we have to sell this place before we buy the other.  No conditional offers will be taken by the current owners of the other place.  They got an offer yesterday, this means we’re in limbo until they accept or reject the offer today or multiple other scenarios happen, so we’ll see.  It would have been our forever/dream home.  Great spot for me in a wheelchair & a nice house for Kim too.  Ah well, not much we can do now but wait.

At least these aren’t non-sense expenses.  It’s not like I have a job to pay for them either.  If we couldn’t afford it, Kim wouldn’t agree to it.  We’ve both cut back on a few luxuries to make this more realistic.

Those are the things that keep me up at night.  It’s that or the fact that I can’t live without stress.  Even this last month & a bit.  If I’m not doing something, I’m thinking about it & what else I need to do.  Now I need to figure out how to relax!

 

New “Opeth” was released on Friday, September 27.  Here’s a review from a metal fan.

James Hetfield (Metallica) helped Randy Blythe (Lamb of God) get sober 9 years ago.

I just find this funny.  I’m passionate about music.  At the same time I realize that not everyone will enjoy the same type of music.  The question “Who’s the best band in the world, living or dead?” there’s no answer to that, don’t lose any sleep over that.  Who do you like?  That’s a question with an answer & you’ll get many different answers!

I may be a rock & metal fan, but we don’t all do drugs, smoke, drink, & swear.  I swear at myself or in jest & I drink socially.  That’s me, whatever any other people do or don’t do is completely up to themselves.

The people I associate with aren’t those wild partying types.  They’re responsible parents.  Yes, I’m THAT old!!!!

 

HEART

I’ve got a greatest hits album that’s all.  I clicked on the “autofill” button years ago on iTunes & was flooded with albums.  Most of them I got rid of & didn’t want.  I think I kept about 8 of them?  There was likely a minimum of 50 that showed up though.  This likely happened in 2005 or 2006?  I’m not necessarily “pro” or “anti” Heart.  I wouldn’t seek them out, but I also didn’t delete the album.  For me, they’re a band that’s there doing their thing.  Before the album was on my iTunes I knew some of their songs, I figured “Great!  Free music I can appreciate.”

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

Music throughout the weekend.  “Nothing but Thieves”, The Struts”, “Tool”, “In Flames”

 

I’ve been out at the family cabin since Tuesday evening.  I had 2 appointments on Tuesday afternoon.  1st with a therapist, then with a psychiatrist a few hours later, & a ½ hour since he was tied up in a meeting.

A psychiatrist gives you pills & talks very little, a therapist or psychologist will speak with you about your issues.  I’m good since my one anti-depressant has been increased as of June.  Now it’s more talking with someone about some minor issues & what the future could look like, how to go about that change.

I’m not perfect physically yet, I still can’t walk, drive, or see with both eyes.  I’m likely going to be in the market for a low exertion, part-time, online job.  Something simple like data entry?

It was good to know that I’m not crazy, as I was told at the therapist.  Just out of sorts after an ABI (Acquired Brain Injury).  Kim & I have been referred to a couples counseling therapy.  No, don’t freak out!  There’s nothing wrong with our marriage.  It’s more of ‘OK, now what?’ type of help & direction for us at this point.  I’m not physically well enough to pick up where I left off & I likely never will be exactly the same.  Things will be different, but a new normal if that makes sense?

My psychiatrist also made a very valuable point.  To paraphrase, he said ‘Recovery is a very long process.’  That should explain why this mundane brain cancer blog has lasted so long.

Our summer break/vacation was late obviously.  I don’t know exactly what we’ve been doing, but this was the week to stop & smell the roses.  The internet was the furthest thing from my mind.  Even without a mobile device, I needed a break.  This social media stuff has it’s pros & cons like everything else.

I had my appointments on Tuesday, September 10th.  We picked up Brewster from daycare & rushed to my parents’ house since my dad was in town.  I had packed the evening before & went from our vehicle to his on the drive way.  Dad picked up a few groceries & a few other items for the cabin while I waited in the car.  We then grabbed some supper from a new place, not knowing we’d be getting a 3 pound portion of poutine each????????????????  Who needs that much potato, gravy, & cheese at once?????????????????  No, neither of us came anywhere close to finishing our poutine!

Anyways, we ate some of our meal I the parking lot & headed to the cabin.  After being there for 3 nights & 3 days, I realized how much it’s not wheelchair accessible.  It’s small, my wheelchair was not touched the entire time since it was raining & cold outside the entire time.  I ended up crawling from the living room, up one full step, & down a hallway to the washroom A LOT since I drink so much water.  Having to pee a minimum of 9 times a day becomes very tiring if you have to crawl back & forth from the washroom.

Friday dad & I met Kim in Chamberlain, Saskatchewan which is about a 20 minute drive from our cabin.  Kim & I drove to her hometown about 3 ½ hours from Regina.  We stayed there Friday night & drove back yesterday (Sunday, September 15th).  Relaxing at both places, but also more effort required at both.  More physical effort at the cabin since I knew the lay of the land there.  Mental effort & aid at Kim’s parents’ since I don’t know it as well & there’s stuff I’m not able to do on my own at this point.

When we came home, we rushed around to get everything back to normal & oddly enough, that was when we both had that moment of ‘Aww, now this is relaxing’.  For me, it was just a matter of knowing how to get around here & do things the way I’m used to doing them without having to exhaust myself mentally or physically.

My mother said at the cabin that she wished it was easier for me to get around there, & Kim said the same at her parents’ house.  I get that, but nobody builds a house thinking “Hey, we should build this so a wheelchair can get around easily”.  Why would anyone do that unless already needed?  I’m guessing there are more physically capable people in the world than physically handicapped?

 

She’ll be back TS fans quit crying.  This isn’t a Nirvana/grunge take over, although TOOL could do it.  This will hurt for just a bit, you’ll be fine.  Let me explain what happened in 1991 with a band called Nirvana.  You weren’t born yet…..

https://loudwire.com/tool-fear-inoculum-no-1-billboard/?fbclid=IwAR2A0rNziV2BAi1QUNyqk49yqcCYTMT-Tui0yvnejLPDW5Th7v57cONx1IA

Even as a rock/metal fan, all this says to me is that rock is definitely not dead.  There’s a market for it.  Remember that trends of any kind come in giant waves.  Nirvana headed the grunge movement in 1991 as did Taylor Swift when she debuted.  Both came with a flood of other artists/bands.  If anything is going to make a huge movement in this scenario, there had better be many other rock/metal bands coming along VERY soon.

I found a much cheaper & more practical guitar with 7 strings instead of the same old 6 string style.  This will also allow me different tuning of the guitar without changing the guitar.  I have 3 other 6 string electric guitars, each in a different tuning.  This will give me more variety in tuning.

BIG WRECK album review of “…but for the sun”

I’ve always wanted to sit down, pick up my guitar, & casually play and sing a Big Wreck song.  Problem I that most of them are in some wacky open tuning on the guitar, which is also very difficult to play unless you’re a lead guitarist.  I’m was a pretty simple rhythm guitarist.  I didn’t get my first guitar until my 21st birthday.  Never took a lesson & as for sheet music, I’ve completely forgotten how to read it!  I was always a singer first, the guitar was for me to hind behind.  I could play 3 songs & an intro.  I taught myself some basic chords & a riff that I could play while singing, then it became somewhat overwhelming!

I went from a low bass singer in high school choir to a tenor singer in a rock band as a hobby.  Yes, I still like classical music A LOT.

Big Wreck is not a metal band, I wouldn’t even call them a hard rock band just a REALLY FANTASTIC rock band that doesn’t get the credit they deserve.  They should be a household name like U2, Ariana Grande, Pink, Pearl Jam, or Foo Fighters.  They don’t sound anything like those bands though.

Singer & lead guitarist Ian Thornley is very fast on the guitar & an excellent songwriter as well.

Their new album “…but for the sun” was released on Friday, August 30th.  Not many people outside of Canada know them, which is really sad.  They could pull off a Soundgarden cover, & vice versa.  Singer, Ian Thornley even auditioned for the rock band “Velvet Revolver” when Scott Weiland passed away.  “Velvet Revolver” already had 2 guitar players & their manager wanted to keep it that way.  Ian Thornley basically told him that he wouldn’t sing unless he had a guitar.  In a band with “Slash” two guitars should already be enough!

I’ll start with a song known all across Canada from their first album then a few songs off of the new album….

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

Music throughout the weekend.  “Tool”, “Big Wreck”, “Nothing but Thieves”, & “Foo Fighters”

 

Kim wasn’t feeling too good on Friday, so she stay home, ate some, felt a bit better & ordered supper.

I was off to Sherry & James’ place since our friend Gerry came down from Saskatoon for his birthday on September 11th.  We just watched football, we all stopped paying attention when it was 34-3 for Winnipeg.  Switched it to USA College football.  Anything but NFL for me, far too slow & 4 hours long.  I believe college football is 4 hours too, it just doesn’t feel like it.

Sherry made tacos for supper, then I came home to string a guitar, did the other one today.

Today we’re just hanging out watching TV.  Kim is still getting over her head cold, draining her sinuses yesterday & today.  She stayed home yesterday.  She wasn’t feeling up to anything.

I’ve got some appointments this week, so I’ll be busy.  I can’t get this wheelchair to move as fast as my mind goes to get everything in order, since February 2008.  Found a bad guitar piece.  Well, there goes $200 until I rip it apart & clean it!

 

Kim got this since I asked her to please buy the new TOOL album for me.  She was in line at noon the day it was released.  The person in front of her had the 4th last copy in the store & the person behind her had the 2nd last copy in the store.  This news is somewhat of a shock, but I always thought it could be a possibility.

I wouldn’t worry Taylor Swift fans, she’s not going anywhere.  I’m not a fan but she has built a career for herself.  She’ll keep doing her thing until she doesn’t enjoy it.

 

TOOL – An album highly anticipated after a 13 year wait!  “FEAR INOCULUM”

The spring of 2006 saw the release of Tool’s 4th full length studio album as of August 30th, 2019 we now have the follow up album.  To say there has been hype, excitement, & anticipation among fans would be a serious understatement.  Yes, I’m a TOOL fan.

After 13 years it you’d assume fans would get tired of waiting & drop TOOL for something new.  Not the case at all.  Past fans & new fans came out in droves to get this new album either through streaming, downloading, or purchasing the physical version.  I bought the CD, & downloaded the 3 extra interludes on iTunes.

The CD was $70 + tax.  Had I been there to buy it I likely wouldn’t have, it’s here & the artwork is INCREDIBLE!  A 36 page booklet of photos, embossing, & for, what I believe is the first time for TOOL, lyrics.  The packaging of this album is phenomenal!

The case opens into three panels.  First panel is the enclosed booklet, middle/2nd panel is the housing for the 4” video screen a ½” higher on the middle panel.  The video inside begins playing when the entire case is opened & stops when closed.  It’s not a song but there is some ambient sound behind a video of TOOL style artwork.  I believe the video is re-chargeable but I have yet to try that.  The final panel has an enclosed space for the CD, which is inside of a cardboard sleeve inside the panel.  Everything has lavish artwork & is embossed to have texture throughout the case.

TOOL has now embraced technology.  As of the middle or beginning of August, the entire TOOL discography was added to digital/online formats.  That & the 13 year wait should easily explain why a band like TOOL is so high up on the music charts.

As for the music itself, well there are 2 versions of the album musically.  10 songs on the digital version, 3 interludes over 86 minutes long roughly & the physical version which is 7 songs with no interludes & still over 80 minutes long roughly.

TOOL is not a metal band!  They incorporate many musical styles in their music.  That’s like pigeon holing an acid jazz band as simply a write off as a jazz band.  Their music does come off as heavier music, likely because of the many layers in an individual song.

This & other TOOL albums aren’t typically made to listen to one song, but listen to the entire album & focus only on the music.  This album is VERY long in playing time though.  A free 90 minutes is hard to find.

With 6 songs being 10:20 – 15:44 minutes long you likely won’t hear a radio single.  Each song is different & they all start off very quiet & tame, eventually coming to a loud, multi – layered crescendo mid song while coming to a quiet close.

I’m not going to give you multiple songs to listen to, just one.  Please drag the video to the middle of the song after a few seconds if you are not interested in the entire 15 minutes of it.

WEEKLY EXERCISE TOTAL/EARTHSIDE/MORE UPBEAT

www.youtube.com links are there for a point of reference if you don’t know what I’m talking about.

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

4 day exercise total; 600 leg lifts, 600 crunches, 200 squats, 200 back flexes, 120 pushups, 600 curls (10 pounds on left arm & 7 pounds on right arm), 600 tricep extensions w/5 pound weight, 400 shoulder raises w/5 pound weight,  stretching, & yoga.

I fell asleep to “Lamb of God” the album “Ashes of the Wake”

I exercised to “Big Wreck” the album “…but the sun”, followed by some of “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “Villains”

 

I had to cut back the back flexes to 300 over a 5 day week, easily the toughest part of my exercise.  I’ve also brought the number of squats down, quality over quantity.  I’m expecting to be at a minimum of 300 in a 5 day week.  Everything else will stay as it is, another sweaty week but feeling good & confident.

So as I was finishing my exercise on Tuesday doing the downward dog yoga pose, I fell getting back to the ground I rammed my face into the ground, off of the mat & on the laminate floor.  Sure it hurt for a bit, I checked my nose & teeth.  My nose wasn’t bleeding & my teeth were all there & not chipped, I was fine, sweaty but fine.

Now that I’m stronger & more confident, I want to do more.  My mind races at night thinking of small things I can do to help around here & elsewhere.  Kim’s been taking are of the house me & Brewster for over 12 years.  I want to step up & do my part here so she doesn’t become overwhelmed.  She comes home from work 5 days a week & makes a REALLY FANTASTIC meal & I clean up after supper.             Other than that, I fold & put away my laundry, vacuum on occasion & sometimes wet Swiffer the floor.  I feel now as though I can do more since I’m here all week.

I can’t afford the moon or anything extravagant.  I can help in smaller ways now.  I’m starting with my grandparents.  They don’t drink water.  So I’ve filled 2X1liter bottle of water flavoured with Mio flavouring so that it tastes more like a juice than plain water.  Something little I can do to help out.  I get excited about stuff like this.  It’s nice to look forward to something other than exercise every day.

I’m getting stronger now, I can tell!  I’m still in a wheelchair, iPatch still, & no driving since Tuesday, February 5th, 2008.  Just physically stronger.  Not only am I able to help out around the house more, but now my mid-life crisis present to myself is back but, if it happens it will likely be a 2/3 life crisis at least.  It was a car & now it’s a PRS guitar.

https://www.prsguitars.com/index.php/electrics/model/ce_24_semi_hollow_2019

A bunch of cool stuff none of which I have & it’s pretty!  Mid-life crisis?  13/16 life crisis or pipe dream!

Well forget that!  Brewster went to the vet after Kim was done work Wednesday & the news wasn’t great!  His heart murmur is between a 5 & 6.  6 is the worst, which means a strong possibility of heart enlargement, heart attack &/or fluid in his lungs.  Now I’m EXTREMELY worried.  Tests & definitely medication, just a matter of how much medication?

Kim is home sick today, she’ll likely be spending the day in bed today.  I got up a bit after 6:00 am, got to my exercises while Kim showered & tried to go to work.  She showered and did her hair but never made it out of the bedroom.  I don’t like contract work much.  She’s not there, she doesn’t get paid.  Oh well, not my job & not really my business.

 

I didn’t even know about this movie on Netflix?  I’ll have to watch it sometime soon!  Here’s the trailer & a review.

New TOOL article/interview as of September 1st!  Long but GREAT album!  Worth the 13 year wait.

Every TOOL fan has seen this lately, I saw it late last week.  Very well done mashup of Taylor Swift & an older TOOL song!

BIG THANKS to Mitch & George Fraser for getting my VERY old electric guitar gear working!!!!!!!  Another thing to look forward to everyday!

I’ve often thought about listening to “Gojira” since I do like “Sepultura”, but something stops me from being a fan every time?

Nobody should like “System of a Down”.  Many of my friends & I think they’re GREAT!   Maybe because there’s nothing that sounds like their music, at least in North America or that I know of?  Here’s a story about their second album out of a total of 5 mass releases.  They’re quite popular.

I don’t think any rock/metal/other band is about to change mainstream music.  It will be a force of many bands & artists to make a significant change.   I couldn’t care less about album sales, as long as I get to hear what I like!

EARTHSIDE

More progressive rock/metal but they tend to go quiet & mellow to the heavier side of things throughout a song.  I haven’t done an “Opeth” music guide yet, but they would be “Opeth” lite followed by “Tool” who would be “Earthside” lite.  All 3 of these bands are progressive & they are all capable of doing light atmospheric music on their albums as well as rock & metal, much like “Dream Theater” as well.

When I say “progressive” in reference to these current metal/rock bands, I mean that the songs are often in rare time signatures.  Not always a song you can tap your foot to.  Most radio friendly songs are in a basic 4/4 time.  There’s nothing wrong with that, it’s simple & to the point.  That gets boring for me after a while & other bands will change time signatures 2-6 times in one song.  Then that can become boring & I’ll go back to the 4/4 stuff.  I always listen to the drums in a song.  It’s the rhythm that I listen to the most in a song.

I have one album by “Earthside” so here’s a sampling of it.

Kim had Monday off, so this is/was a 4 day week exercise total; 400 pushups, 300 tricep pushups, 200 back flexes, 300 squats, 400 leg lifts, 200 crunches.

I fell asleep to “Ed Sheeran” the album “Divide”, followed by “The 1975” the album “I love it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it”

I exercised to “Muse” the album “Origin of Symmetry”

I love the days I do pushups & tricep lifts.  For about 3 minutes after, my arms look huge.  After 3 minutes or so, not so much.  L  As much as I’m getting tired of exercising 5 or 4 days a week, it’s a necessary evil.  Some days I’m up at 7:00 am bright eyed & ready to go.  Other days I would love to stay in bed since I’m so comfy & warm.  Either way I know I MUST do my exercises & whatever else I can do around the house.  I can’t wait for a breather in December followed by a flat out rest for a few days around Christmas.  Come January 2nd it all starts up again.

I’m 6’1” when I got sick apparently I was shockingly tall.  When I moved to the WRC, they scrambled to find a bed for someone my height?  As my dad said “You should have told them you’re the runt of the litter”.  My younger brother is 6’3” and my 2nd or 3rd cousin, who is only a few years older than me, has to duck when he walks through a doorway.  I can’t imagine the horror on their faces if they had to find a bed for him!

PINK THE ALBUM “BEAUTIFUL TRAUMA”/CARPOOL KARAOKE

If it wasn’t a FANTASTIC album, it wouldn’t be on here.  I don’t know much about her.  She’s married & has a young girl.  She wrote the current theme song for ‘The Ellen Degeneres Show’.  Her real name is Alecia Moore.  She was born in 1979.  She seems to have been releasing albums for quite a while.  We have her “Greatest Hits…so far”, “The Truth about Love”, & “Beautiful Trauma”.  I REALLY like her “Greatest Hits” & “Beautiful Trauma” albums.  Her first album was released in 2000, “Can’t Take me Home” I still remember the first video I saw from that album.  Her first studio album to start the total of 7 studio albums.

Now we’ll go right to the 2017 release “Beautiful Trauma”

I fell asleep to “Devin Townsend Project” the album “Transcendence”, followed by “U2” the album “Songs of Experience” & finally “Trivium” the album “The Sin & The Sentence”

I exercised to “Pink” the album “Beautiful Trauma”

 

“So far so good” this week!  I seem to have more energy this week than usual.  I’ve been playing around with the numbers of repetitions I do with a couple of exercises, adding not subtracting.

I got a call Monday morning from my doctor’s office saying they needed a urine sample.  I wasn’t thinking.  I called Kim & realized we gave it to the lab on Sunday instead of Friday when I gave the blood sample.  They’ve got my sample from Sunday.  I had to give another Tuesday evening.  Really good/nice people just REALLY frustrated that these minor inconveniences are now part of my life.  All of that being said, this beats the worst alternative.

I’m a Canadian living in Canada.  Whatever the orange guy south of us says has no effect on me anymore.  He’s nothing more than a racist that craves attention.  Remember that car hitting a crowd in Charleston?  He said he’d rather be called racist than wrong.  Mr. President, those 2 words fit together very well & come hand in hand.

Great news when the Pope is worried about nuclear war.

I guess I’ll miss 1 BIG concert this year & that’s fine getting to see the others will be FANTASTIC!  I’ll miss “Stone Sour” with “Halestorm” oh well.  I don’t see either band calling it a career anytime soon.  They are playing in Saskatoon on February 4th, yeah a Sunday……..BOO.  The other ones totally make up for it though!  Money tree is bare due to the other concerts, that & I’m not sure who would come with me to that one?  No big deal though!  If I had to miss a concert this year, that would be the one.

No matter who it is or how it sounds, it should be better live!  If it’s not I write them off & forget about seeing them live or purchase the odd album.  I’ll never see Taylor Swift live & that’s fine with me.  I only purchased her pop album “1989” since it was really catchy & not country.  Country music & I don’t mix just like water & oil.

With the exception of the latest “Foo Fighters” album, the bands I like, especially Foo Fighters, like to sound the same recorded as they do live.  Many members of the many bands I like seem to all share that sentiment.

“Corrosion of Conformity” REVIEW

It’s exactly as this reviewer said…

She seemed to like it more than I do.  It’s a lot like “Anthrax”, I don’t love it & I don’t hate it.  It’s good!  I’d give it 3 out of 5.  It reminds me quite a bit of “Kyuss”.  I see myself listening more to their earlier albums like “Wiseblood”, “Deliverance”, “In the Arms of God”, & “America’s Volume Dealer”.

Here’s a “Kyuss” tune from my preferred album of theirs “Blues for the Red Sun”

The Blue Jays did something but I wouldn’t think this is all.  They signed a 37 year old outfielder for $5,000,000 for 1 year to platoon with a left or right fielder.  At minimum they still need a fifth starting pitcher & hope there are 0 injuries.  In other words, I’m still not impressed.  “Hello 28th place in the entire MLB.  Haven’t seen you since last season!”

Friday was quiet.  Jolene’s birthday but Kim was pretty out of it at the end of the week.  She went to bed around 9:00 or 9:30 pm.  I stayed up to do a few things on my computer, looked at the time & figured I should pack it in.  It was 11:55 pm.

Kim felt better today, & went to take family photos of Corey, Jolene, Hannah, & their dog Dug.  I spent the majority of the day going through every song on my iTunes.  Crap I have a LOT of music on here.

I got up around 9:45 am, had breakfast, & came in here on Saturday.  I missed having lunch but I did have some tasty tortellini for supper.  Ended up coming back in here, deleting doubles & such trying to make my iTunes library as close to perfect as possible.  Looked at the clock & it was 11:50 pm.

Today I have no “Desire” to be on the computer.

I do REALLY like 2 of these movies though!

 

I watch a lot of his youtube videos & they’re mostly guitar videos & he’s very good.  I’ve never heard him speak.

 

What do you think of Myles Kennedy’s first single?  I’d say it’s decent, a nice change of pace from everything else he does.

EXERCISE TOTAL & A BIT OF REBUTTAL

A 4 day week for me.  150 triceps pushups (I was messing with the numbers this week), 400 crunches, 400 leg lifts, 400 pushups, & 160 back flexes.  Starting Monday, December 4th I’m going to take it down a bit until January 2nd.  Triceps, leg lifts, & pushups.  Crunches & back flexes will come back into the fold on January 2nd.

If you’re reading this but haven’t subscribed, I would do so now. From here until mid-February there could be really random postings aka it might not be Sunday, Wednesday, & Friday as scheduled.

Whoever is reading, please pass it on?  Show your friends that stage 4 brain cancer isn’t always a death sentence.  Please feel free to share every single post.  My hope is to inspire others & show them that it is possible to survive.

I fell asleep to “Neil Young” a greatest hits album, followed by “Prince” the album “1999”

 

When I was released from therapy, I felt a sense of entitlement, “Yay I beat cancer.  Look at me!!!!”  I didn’t realize it then, but I already got the greatest thing ever, a second chance at life & make it better.  Instead I acted terribly, even before I was released & all of my therapy session were done.  Luckily everyone stuck around despite my behavior, since they know that’s nowhere close to what I was like before cancer.  THANK YOU!!!!

In one of the more recent postings I said something like “Hope for the best.  Prepare for the worst.”  You can only do that in certain circumstances.  You can’t spend your entire life looking over your shoulder looking for something bad to happen.  Unless you know something bad is coming just enjoy what you have & look forward to whatever good the future has for you!

I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “Silence in the Snow” followed by “Muse” the album “Black Holes & Revelations”

I exercised to “Econoline Crush” 3 albums on shuffle.

400 crunches, 400 leg lifts, 390 pushups, 160 back flexes, & 20 minutes of planking.

That’s 100 crunches, 100 leg lifts, now 100 pushups, 40 back flexes, & 5 minutes of planking each working day.

I did 90 pushups on Monday, then figured I could suffer through 10 more the rest of the week.  I’d increase my crunches to 700-1000 but not until I’ve had back surgery.  At that point I’d throw my squats back into the routine as well.

My back is fine at the moment, it does flare up once in a while though.  I’ve had this issue since ’96 or ’97 in high school!

I can’t even imagine how people in my life felt when they heard the news that I had been diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer.

Even now people ask if they can help me with something.  I get that, a guy who is physically disabled will say “Yes please” on most occasions.  I on the other hand try to figure out how to do things on my own.  It may take me longer or after a few tries & if I can’t figure it out, I’ll accept any help.

I know at times I can be stubborn about asking for help, that’s my pride taking over.  I like the challenge of trying to be more independent.  When I figure something out, that’s one less thing people don’t have to worry about me doing on my own.

I really don’t want others to worry about me.  If I need help with something I will ask.  Please don’t worry about me?  Hold my beer & watch this!

We have this upcoming week off.  Tuesday evening I made a list of our commitments for the week here.  Our week off became very busy, in a good way though.  Lots of people (7?) from out of town will be here to see us & partake in other festivities!

I’ll be checking Facebook & email, just no blog posts until Monday, September 4th.
