I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the album “There is Nothing Left to Lose”

I exercised to “Big Wreck” the album “In Loving Memory of…”

 

What is it going to take to have Trump impeached?  How many times will we toss him a softball & he swings?  He doesn’t want North Korea to start a war on USA soil.  Great, that would probably affect us Canadians too.  But if any group of white supremacists wants to have a war on US soil against any one that’s different, that’s OK?  Can we please just get rid of him already?  I had brain cancer & survived.  If I were black or any colour than white or a part of the #LGBTQ community, which I fully support, & lived in the USA, I would probably be on the kill list, if not dead already.

When your President avoids any question, he’s actually saying a LOT!  Has STRONGLY implied that domestic white on black terrorism is OK.  Any person or group of another race hurting white people is wrong.  This morning I saw a report that he has stopped the funding of an anti-white supremacist group.  A group that helps people leave a neo-Nazi or KKK type of group safely if a person wants out.

Thanks Donnie, look at how much you’ve divided your own country.  People took to the streets on a random Saturday in August!

LANGUAGE & DISTURBING IMAGERY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don’t have anything polite to say about this current event.  Coincidence they support Donnie?

You want a travel ban?  I wouldn’t worry about most people visiting your country for a while.  You’ve pushed most people away already.  I have nothing against reasonable Americans, but Donnie is certainly an unreasonable one I would avoid, along with the KKK, Neo-Nazis or any hate group.  Thanks for taking your country back to the 1940s.

Diemonds released their last album in 2015.  If You like Guns n’ Roses, Diemonds might be just what you want to check out.  I’m not a GNR fan in the least, but Diemonds are AWESOME to me.  This is from their Facebook page.

“Never Wanna Die was released August 14, 2015, two years ago today. The album is dedicated to the memories of Alan Riches, Paul Mancuso and Vassil Mester, all one time members of Diemonds that passed away while we were writing it. We miss them. It was recorded with producer Eric Ratz in Toronto, Canada. We had our first experiences doing fun co-writes with Alan Frew from Glass Tiger (Never Wanna Die) and Ian D’Sa from Billy Talent (Ain’t That Kinda Girl) to name a few. We’re incredibly proud of its nomination of Heavy Metal Album of the Year in the 2016 Juno Awards. We’ve been lucky enough to tour this album in Canada, Japan, United States, and soon we’ll be able to add England, Scotland, France, Spain, Germany, and Austria to the list. Thank you for all of the continued support!! What’s your favourite track? Where do you want to see us live once we are finished recording our next record?”

Truth be told, I would have liked to avoid my computron this week entirely!  That could be my biggest reason for not having a cell phone.  Holy sensory overload Batman!

I fell asleep to “Dream Theater” the album “Black Clouds & Silver Linings”

 

I exercised to “Alice Cooper” the new album “Paranormal”

 

Some stuff to do around the house & it feels like an “I Mother Earth” day, the album “Blue, Green, Orange”

 

Exercise total this week, a 4 day week; 400 crunches, 400 leg lifts, 295 pushups, 160 back flexes, & 20 minutes of planking!  Every day starts with me exercising, no shower, dressed in workout attire, & no breakfast.

I was playing with the pushup number, 75 is probably an achievable number per day.

Well I’m alive, cancer didn’t win.  Let’s get things straight.  I did nothing to sway the outcome of this cancer garbage.  My body, nurses, doctors, & Kim were not giving up on me!  I was in a coma for a month, then slept 23 hours a day until early 2009.  Waking up only for pain killers & randomly awake for very light physio.

When I moved to the WRC, I wasn’t in the know as to what was ahead for me or why I couldn’t continue my therapy at the hospital?  I do remember, while sleeping at the hospital in 2008, asking Kim in a dream if she could take over, because I needed a break.

The day I passed out at work was Tuesday, February 5th 2008.  6 days after my 28th birthday & I’m pretty sure I gave myself the worst birthday present ever!  BAZINGA!

I blacked out completely after Kim came into the Ambulance in the parking lot at my work.  I do remember a doctor checking my reflexes by pushing a pen cap on my fingernails to see if I’d pull my hand back from the pain.  I did & had some nasty thoughts about smacking the doctor upside of their head it hurt so much!  Other than that, I was out for a year or a little bit more.  Great company for Kim, her sister was with her for a lot of it………………I think?

I have a job, to make myself better!  I hate spending too much time on the computer.  Doing this blog 3 times a week is much better for me & likely for you as well!  Don’t think that I do nothing all day.  I exercise for 1.5 – 2 hours first thing in the morning, have breakfast, shower, usually tend to the dishwasher or whatever needs to be done around here, lunch is in there somewhere, I write portions of the next blog post, finish up whatever chore I have to do & hit the couch by 2:00 pm or 3:00 pm.  Somethings take a bit longer for me to do, & somethings I can do just like I used to.  If it’s a new task or in a different environment, I’ll need some time to figure out if I can do it or if I’ll need help.

 

THAT’S ALL FOR THE CANCER TALK FOR NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

For most Americans, this was Barenaked Ladies 1st album, it’s actually their 5th album.  Their debut full length album was “Gordon”.  My first concert at the age of 12!

5th album, released in 1998

1st full length album released in July of 1992.  The artwork was different when I bought the CD!  A few weeks more than 25 years ago!

 

13 years ago Alter Bridge released their first album “One Day Remains” & Donnie wasn’t president.  A much simpler time!

I have this 3 CD bundle on the way from Alter Bridge in September B-Side, rarities, & a live album as well.  Not on iTunes, but the actual CDs.  There is a package with a documentary DVD but I have the 10th anniversary box set with numerous long interviews from each band member.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/multimedia/the-titanic-rises-again-china-makes-history-by-remaking-it-1.4238912

 

Metal fans, Canada has something to bring to the party!

http://loudwire.com/best-canadian-metal-bands/

I’ll add 3 to that list!  “The Agonist” from Quebec, “Into Eternity” of Regina, & “Third Ion” from Regina.  All touring bands.  Into Eternity has played alongside big name metal acts such as “Megadeth” & “Dream Theater”

 

OK, I’m more than ready for the new Queens of the Stone Age album on August 25th!

2nd single

1st single

 

I’m surprised America still has allies?  Donnie has pretty much any discounted &/or shamed every country possible.

You had to know this type of thing would happen with Donnie as president.  WWIII was easily a possibility with him leading America.  Does he have an off switch?

 

I’m not ending this with news about Donnie.  How about Helium infused beer!

I’ve shared this & tagged many people on social media!  Many more could easily be added though.  I’ll find this beer one day!

I fell asleep to “Alice Cooper” the album “Paranormal”, “Diemonds” the album “Never Wanna Die”, & finally “INXS” their “Greatest Hits”

Yeah, bonus live tracks at the end of this album.

 

I exercised to “Royal Blood” the album “How did we get so dark?”

 

Exercise total this week; 500 crunches, 500 leg lifts, 300 pushups, 200 back flexes, & 25 minutes of planking!  Every day starts with me exercising, no shower, dressed in workout attire, & no breakfast.  Once I finish my exercises, then I allow myself to have breakfast, shower, put on clean clothes, & usually in this room to work on the next blog.  Yep, I hit my goal every day this week.

I do get quiet exhausted after my 60 pushups.  I leave them for the end since I’m useless after them.  I roll on to my side or back since it’s easier to breathe!  I start my exercises on my back, crunches & leg lifts, once I roll on to my stomach & do ½ of my back flexes, I’m breathing pretty heavy already!  I end up doing some of my planking for a bit.  Once the back flexes & planking is done, then I’ll do a set of 20-30 pushups, then fish with 2 sets of 20 or a set of 30.

After I shower, I check to see if my balance has improved with my hands hovering by my transfer pole.  Some days are really good, & most days are bad.  When it’s a bad day I’ll try a few more times.  That’s the reason for the wheelchair & exercising!  I need to start walking with my walker at least once a week, if not 3 times a week.  When I do, I can tell that my exercising makes a HUGE improvement each time!  That being said, I’ve still have a long road ahead of me.

I’m going back to a Sunday, Wednesday, Friday routine this week!

 

Thursday we stayed home & I watched the Blue Jays game.  We cleared off the DVR in the evening.  Friday we slept in until 8:30 am.  I get to bed around 11:30 pm, about an hour later I fall asleep……………if I’m lucky after flipping, tossing, & flopping around!  Kim’s out seconds before she’s lying down.  Friday in the late afternoon, a friend of ours was in town.  We had supper & I had a few Malibu rum & 7 up.  The Gin to 7 up ratio didn’t work out, I had to figure out what to put in the remaining 7 up.  Fake rum it was!  Don’t worry, I have real rum & Coke or beer usually.

Saturday, we spent the afternoon at Sherry & James’ in the backyard on the deck having some adult beverages.  We got there around 3:00 pm & left around 7:00 pm.  Watched the Rider game on TV to see them lose, then watched “Blue Jays in :30” to see them lose 2 -1 in the 10th inning in Cleveland.  Today they play in Cleveland the last game of 3 in Cleveland aka I’ll be on the couch!

 

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

 

R.I.P. Chester Bennington, thanks for the music you’ve left us with.

Yes, it’s sad to hear that anyone has died & we all send our thoughts towards the friends & family affected by the passing of anyone.  If it’s because of suicide, someone should have or likely noticed a change in the individual’s attitude or mood.  If they didn’t notice anything.  The passing of that person should not to be celebrated in any manner.  I know it’s hard to talk about.  I couldn’t deal with mine in the WRC.  I had to ask Kim to write a note to my doctor for me, I dictated it to her & passed it along to my doctor.  I’ve been there, I’ve thought about it many times, before & during my recovery of cancer.  I have no desire to go back to such a dark place.  A suicide is sad, but unjustified!  You don’t have to commit suicide, ask for help, any decent person would gladly listen.  Or take a deep breath, step back, look at the situation, prioritize the issues, & tackle them one at a time.

“The world has lost not only an amazing singer and artist, but a great father and a good friend. Our hearts are broken from the loss. We will miss you Chester.

If you’re alone and feeling the same, reach out. If you’re fighting depression and pain, speak out. There is always someone to listen.” – Stone Sour

Sorry Blue Jay fans, they’re going nowhere fast.  Trade deadline on July 31st, I’m confident that much ado about nothing will happen.  Word is the Rogers owner has told CEO Mark Shapiro & GM Ross Atkins not to blow this team up.  ‘They’re too good of a team’ aka they’re making money off of the TV revenues & attendance at the ball park.  I think we’re living on false hope or a “Look over here, while I do nothing over there” scam!  Bautista & maybe Marco Estrada &/or Francisco Lariano will be traded, nobody else though (the 3 mentioned players have expiring contracts at the end of the season).  They want to keep this old team together for the sake of making a few extra bucks.  As of Sunday morning, before today’s game, they are 44W-53L with 57 regular season games left.  Unless they win, I’d guess 47 or more of those games, I don’t see a playoff game or series happening this year!

I fell asleep to “System of a Down” the album “Steal This Album”

I exercised to “Foo Fighters” the album “In Your Honor” the rock album of the double album.

Busy morning CT scan at 9:30, I can’t eat until after the scan so Kim & I went for brunch after.  Went to Sportchek where Kim got me 2 pairs of shorts & new shoes/sneakers.  Everything was on sale & I found good shoes on the clearance shelf.  Then we got Brewster from my parents’ house.  The scan is just my routine scan before I see my Cancer Clinic doctor later on in the summer whenever that is?  We’ll call the shorts & shoes my anniversary gift.  Our 12th anniversary is on Sunday!

Exercise total for the week; 500 crunches, 250 leg lifts, 100 pushups.  So currently that’s; 100 crunches, 50 leg lifts, & 20 pushups a day.  I’ll up the numbers slowly to 1000 crunches every other day, then planking on the next day instead, 100 leg lifts, & hopefully 100 pushups a day.  No squats at least until I meet with the surgeon or after the surgery if I can get it.

I’ve been doing my exercise first thing in the morning all week, except on Monday when it was a sauna in here.  Sure it takes a while as I will increase the numbers.  I have the time though, more time than anyone with an 8 hour job 5 days a week, &/or kids to keep track of.

From Tuesday, February 5th 2008 – Thursday, July 26th 2012.  I missed EVERYTHING!  Not all that bad though.  All that mattered was me getting better.  Of course I missed everyone, friends & family.  Missing everything is probably why I saturate myself in pop culture?  That’s not real life all of the time though.  I like just hanging out with a small group of friends.  I can’t drive though, so sometimes/most times we invite people here.  Of course I clear it with Kim first.

That was a time when I had to be completely selfish & just focus on getting stronger & healthier.  All of that being said, it really does feel better to give than receive.  Wait……………I guess you all got me………………if you wanted or not.  Hahahahahaha!

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today. 

Immediately after I posted Wednesday’s blog “Paramore” released a 2nd video from their album “After Laughter” out on May 12th.   They even broke ‘Spotify’ for a bit on Wednesday.

 

YAY!  “Nothing but Thieves” have an album coming out in September!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The first album was & is FANTASTIC!  It’s not a metal or hard rock album at all.  More like early Radiohead.

If you ask me, I’ll take their 2nd album, The Bends, over any of their other albums, & their 3rd album, OK Computer, is considered one of the most important alternative albums of all time!

 

Linkin Park announce North American tour.

http://loudwire.com/linkin-park-summer-2017-north-american-dates-machine-gun-kelly/

 

I wouldn’t expect a “Tool” album this year.  Good chance that there will be an “A Perfect Circle” album though.  I heard an interview with Maynard.  He basically said that he sees many road blocks for one band.  I’m guessing it’s Tool?  He didn’t want to name which band it was though.  In a different clip drummer, Danny Carey of Tool, laughed at the thought of a Tool album being released this year.  I hope A Perfect Circle doesn’t release something like the album of cover songs that sound dark & dreary & nothing that resembles the original versions.  Long audio interview!!!!!!!!!!!!

LANGUAGE IN THE INTERVIEW!  SKIP TO 40:00 FOR THE INFO!!!!!!!

LANGUAGE!!!!!  This is about his anger at God after his mother suffered a stroke.

 

Recall on Bombay gin.  Is this a bad thing?  If it’s got double the alcohol it’s like a 2 in 1!  Half a shot is good enough, it will last longer.  Or you’ll down it in two weekends & never drink gin again!

I fell asleep to “Metallica” the new album “Hardwired…………to self-destruct”, woke up to pee & listened to “Big Wreck” the album “Grace Street”

I exercised to “In Flames” the album “Colony”

 

I did 200 crunches yesterday & 200 today.  My abs really hurt, how on earth was I doing 1500 a day with no pain?

Kim’ stomach is fine.  She’s trying to figure out what it is that bothers her for a day or 2 a week.  She doesn’t get sick, she just has an annoying stomach every now & then.  She’s exercising a bit as well.  She went for a ½ hour run on Sunday, in the exercise room here on the treadmill.

I’m doing some of my exercises, & still stretching my sciatic nerve mostly.  I’m doing a fraction of my crunches & some of my leg lifts.  My daily goal for crunches each day won’t be 1500, it will be a little bit less when I reach it, and 1300 is what I’ll build up to.  I gotta say that doing my exercises feels more normal for me.  Back into my routine a bit, it feels much better!

Well it’s official!  I have an addiction…………………to music.  The “Big Wreck” album “Grace Street” was released on Friday.  As of Monday evening I’ve listened to it 13 times on my iPod & likely 5-8 times through our stereo.  Another reason I don’t play my music on the stereo when Kim’s home!

 

New “Queens of the Stone Age” this year……………….AWESOME!!!!

A Perfect Circle is going on tour from April 6 – May 7

I may be listening to Big Wreck quite a bit, but I try to listen to as much music as possible!  Alter Bridge, In Flames, The Pretty Reckless, Metallica, Bruno Mars, Ascot Royals, Our Lady Peace, The Agonist, Into Eternity, Portal, Lamb of God, Judah & the Lion, Diemonds, etc.  Like every Tool fan I’m waiting patiently for a new album.

 

A follow up to the 2006 release “10,000 Days” by Tool would be more than welcome.

I had 2 glasses of cranberry juice & sprite last night.  Bad idea!  I lost track of how many times I had to pee, I listen to portions of many albums!

“Halestorm” the album “Into the Wild Life”

“Foo Fighters” the album “There is Nothing Left to Lose”

“Foo Fighters” the S/T debut album

“Judah & the Lion” the album “Folk Hop n’ Roll”

“Big Wreck” the album “Albatross”

“Big Wreck” the album “…in loving memory”

“Nothing but Thieves” the S/T debut album

Being physically handicapped means nothing to me.  At this point, it’s normal to me.  It’s been that way for a while now.  I know some of my limitations & I know some of the stuff I can do.  Not necessarily limited completely.  My brother & his girlfriend live in a building with no elevator.  They live on the top floor/the 3rd floor.  It takes me a while, but I can get up there.  I think I’ve been there 3 or 4 times.  Rachel knows the deal when I get up there.  I’m greeted with a beer & a dill pickle.  That’s my welcoming gift.

I don’t really feel self-conscious in public anymore either.  If someone sees me & has a question, that’s fine by me.  I’ve never had someone ask me anything but if they want to, there’s no such thing as a stupid question.

Industrial rock/metal is not my thing.  I don’t know a thing about.  Here’s www.loudwire.com take on it though.

I bought these 2 CDs way back when & out of these 2 CDs I only liked the singles and I don’t listen to either album.

I didn’t buy this, but I know a lot of people that really like(d) it.

They lost me at “Du”

Seeing “Queen” was a once in a lifetime experience.  Of course we all wanted Freddie Mercury there!  Adam Lambert was classy, hit the notes & in no way tried to steal anybody’s thunder, especially Freddie Mercury’s.
