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

NO POST UNTIL FRIDAY!!!  THEN WE’LL CARRY ON AS USUAL.

Music throughout the weekend.  “Pink”, “Pantera”, “The Struts”, “Obadiah Parker”, “The Watchmen”, & a mix I made of 80s & early 1990s songs “Bobby McFerrin”, & “Fall Out Boy”

 

I stayed up until shortly after 10:00 pm on Friday, watching the Blue Jay game.  I didn’t watch the entire game though.  I watched the game until the 4th inning.  The Jays were winning 9-2 at that point.  I watched the rest of it on Saturday to see them win 10-2.  Way behind on Saturday’s game.  I’ll have to watch Saturday’s game on Sunday.  Busy weekend!

My 2nd cousin who is a year younger than me is in town this weekend from Winnipeg.  Saturday her & her common law husband came over to see our place & stroll over to see a MASSIVE private liquor store in town.  We then went to my parents’ place for supper, Rebellion beer, & a game.  Good to see them REALLY nice people!

On Sunday Kim & her sister were planting their bedding plants.  Kim’s pots for our place & the plants for Sherry’s yard & pots.  Pretty cold outside at +13C.  So I stayed home.  If it was nicer outside, James & I could have done play by play on their deck!

Today Kim made a REALLY good brunch for the 2 of us.  I’ve boiled my eggs for the 4 day week.  I’ll make my veggie juice, then we’ll plunk down on the couch to watch some TV or have a nap!  My vegetable juice is similar to a V8, but with no salt added or any spices other than a chunk of ginger for a bit of kick to it.

 

I’m a Canadian, living in Canada & I’ve been watching WAY TOO much CNN.  I quit watching CNN to 10 minutes over the last 2 weeks & I just don’t care anymore.  I don’t like Trump & I’ve never been a fan of him, EVER!  I realized that he’s not my problem unless I move to America.  Not watching him lie repeatedly REALLY makes me happier & I don’t swear at the TV nearly as much as I used to.  I don’t like him & I never will.  I don’t need to watch every stupid thing he does.  CNN no more.

Will this work?  I would’ve preferred John Hamm, but I guess we’ll see what happens?

I hear that a TON of DC Comic fans really don’t like this move!  Give him a chance, what’s the worst that could happen?  He’ll ruin a movie franchise that’s already just trying to keep it’s head above water?  I prefer the darker DC Comic movies, he’s not guilty of anything, wait & watch.  Trump’s president so anything can happen

Perfect ending to The Big Bang Theory?

“Chevelle” are now done their new album!  A follow up to their album of scraps kicking around (B sides & rarities).  For a handful of 12 songs that weren’t released, it’s a very good album!

Apple/iTunes had better get their act together if they won’t allow CDs or any 3rd party files on their streaming & downloading services.  Last year I bought a live album on CD.  Because it’s not on either service from Apple.  If I’m missing out on albums only available on CD, it’s on Apple.  Even if it’s only on streaming I’ll miss out!  I’ve added many albums that are no longer in print & not on iTunes, when I first started using iTunes.

 

THEM CROOKED VULTURES

This is a “Super Group” I now love.  I love the 3 members in their everyday bands, but this album was somewhat disappointing to me, & it wasn’t over hyped at all.  It just kind of showed up for me.  It was released in 2009 & I was in the hospital completely unaware of it to be fair.  The group is Dave Grohl (Nirvana & Foo Fighters) on drums, Josh Homme on guitar & lead vocals (Queens of the Stone Age), & John Paul Jones on bass (Led Zeppelin).

I listened to this album recently during my exercise.  It finally clicked, it took me a decade, but I really like this album now.  When I bought the CD, I listened to it a few times & forgot about it.  This happens to me quite often.  I’ll buy an album, listen to it about 3 times & forget about it.  Then 2 or more years go by & I’ll listen to it again & I’ll change my mind completely.

Our brother-in-law is a HUGE fan of RUSH.   For a long time since the spring of 2002 he’s been giving me the gears about not liking RUSH.  I listened to some RUSH from the ‘80s on.  I thought the mix was different & Geddy Lee’s voice wasn’t as prominent, I was wrong.  It was that the synthesizer wasn’t used as much & is gone in the later albums.  I now love RUSH from 1985 – whenever they broke up a few years ago.

Same with Metallica.  It took 33 years & the album “Hardwired…………to Self – Destruct” for me to become a fan.

WEEKLY EXERCISE TOTAL/MENTAL HEALTH/THE AGONIST

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

5 day exercise total; 200 pushups, 600 leg lifts, 450 crunches, 150 tricep lifts, 450  squats, 300 back flexes.  Yoga & stretching for just over an hour on Thursday.  Today, YAY no water pressure.  Kim walked out the door for work & the water pressure died within 10 minutes.

I fell asleep to “Big Wreck” the 20th anniversary of “In Loving Memory of…”

I exercised to “Foo Fighters” the album “The Colour & the Shape”

NO POST UNTIL MONDAY.  LONG WEEKEND, SEE YOU THEN!

 

When I do my exercises I always try to at least hit my goals, if not exceed them.  By the time Thursday rolls around, I’m very tired.  My muscles on top of my shoulders are sorer this week than last week.  I’m not doing arms next week, 2 days of stretching & yoga next week.  I felt fine, started with my tricep lifts on Tuesday & almost cried in pain, I finished doing 150 of them, then my 200 pushups.  Pushups were fine.  Maybe yoga, stretching, & 200 pushups next week?  I am SO ready for the weekend.  My shoulders are killing me!  I took a muscle relaxant in hope of getting rid of this pain.  I have to make sure I can take certain medications with my regular pills.

All of these pills make me feel old.  I’m going to see a psychiatrist for my depression, not a psychologist.  A psychiatrist will chat briefly & prescribe medication.  I don’t think more pills are what I need.  As much as I don’t like talking about my mood or emotions, that’s probably what I need.  The first thing I’ll tell the doctor is that I would like to not have more pills.  The pills don’t seem to be helping much, if at all.

 

There’s supposed to be a TON of new albums out this year, yet only 7, 4 albums I had no clue about, have been released & I know of 3 that are in the mixing process.  Where is the new “Chevelle”, “Lamb of God”, “Anthrax”, or “Megadeth”?  “Tool”, “Big Wreck”, & “Alter Bridge” are done recording & now mixing.  I’ve got 2 standalone singles from “Big Wreck”.  I hope there is a bit of time between the releases.  I like to give each album a concentrated listen or usually 5 good listens to it before saying anything about it.  I had no clue about “Pink”, “The Damned Things”, “Sum 41” or “Devin Townsend” so those were pleasant surprises!  “Sum 41” won’t be released until mid-July.  Right now “Pink” & “In Flames” are my favourite releases of the year so far.

The 3 in mixing at the moment are the 3 albums I’m really anxious to hear, “Tool”, “Big Wreck”, & “Alter Bridge”.

I know all of this exercise is beneficial.  Right now I’ve got a “…beefy arm & a wing-a-ling….” Beefy on the right arm & wing-a-ling for my left arm.

I use my right arm mostly, my left arm shakes quite a bit.  If I go to fill my water bottle & get a glass of juice.  The water bottle has a lid so I carry that with my left hand, the shaky one.  The glass of juice will be in my right hand.

Did everyone catch the series finale of “The Big Bang Theory”?

 

THE AGONIST

A metal group from the province of Québec, Canada.  I own all of their 5 albums.  I bought their first album on CD when it was released in 2007.  They’re fronted by a female, in 2007 & now.  I think the original singer was replaced for the 4th & 5th album, I know she was replaced but I’m not sure when?  Both were capable of doing death metal vocals & singing.

I saw them on Much Music on the show “Loud” that I recorded since it was on at 3:00 am or some ridiculous time.  They’ve released 5 albums in total, the first 3 are no longer available on iTunes?

I fell asleep to “Ed Sheeran” the album “X”, followed by “Alter Bridge” the album “The Last Hero”

Monday was a good day at home.  My nerve didn’t really bother me much.  I had an appointment at the physiotherapist & felt bad for the guy.  He knew my lower back was sore, & I’ve had a bulging disc in my spine since high school.  He said my back was tight & gave me more stretches to do.  Unfortunately Monday was pretty much a pain free day, & he didn’t really see a severe problem.  I see him once a week for at least the next 3 weeks.  More/additional stretches & things are finally back on track.  I was tempted to do some exercise today before the appointment but I figured better safe than sorry.  I’m wishful to get rid of this nerve pain sooner than later, at least I can see a light at the end of the tunnel!

I did part of my stretches this morning to “Nothing but Thieves”.  I do them throughout the day, so I’m not done them completely yet.

DISCLAIMER!!  I’M NOT A RELIABLE SOURCE CONSERNING POLITICS!!!!!  I’M THE LAST PERSON YOU WANT TO TALK TO REGARDING POLITICS.

 

To say I’m disappointed with the outcome of the election is not even close to how I feel.  I can’t change it or fix it.  This was a slam dunk for Hillary.  WWIII, it’s coming.  I’m more scared now than I’ve ever been.  Trump has been accused of sexual assault.  So has Bill Cosby.  I’d take Bill Cosby over Trump.  At least Bill Cosby gave us something, stand-up comedy, The Cosby Show, Kids say the Darndessed Things, &, Jell-O Pudding commercials.  What has Trump given you?  The Apprentice & a book.  I was nervous before, & now I’m terrified!  America just elected a terrorist as President.  Enjoy your 4 years of a worse George Bush Jr.!  I’ll be in my bomb shelter, see you in 4 years!  Even Stephen Colbert is close being speechless.

 

“I can’t believe the news today….”

I went out last night for a beer tasting.  I come home, try to relax, turn on the TV to see what I’d hoped to see, & drop my jaw that Trump is leading?  I changed the channel to see if anyone else is reporting the same stuff or if this was a mistake?  It wasn’t.  Watched some Netflix, Kim went to bed, I watched more election coverage, felt myself getting angry & went to bed.

 

I was watching TV after I posted my blog.  I was in the kitchen & heard an ad for “Tropical Orange Juice”.  I thought the ad was for “Trumpical Orange Juice” oh, did I have a good chuckle!  No wonder his complexion is orange!

I love “The Big Bang Theory” but I’m not sure if this spin-off would work, why mess with the chemistry?  Remember when “FRIENDS” ended & the very short spin-off called “Joey” that didn’t end well?

I’m OK.  I got VERY lucky & survived cancer.  Now all of this exercise I do is to try to survive surviving cancer.  Do I want to be in a wheelchair forever?  No.  Only I can fix that.  Everyone’s support & help is greatly appreciated!  I can’t just say to someone “Hey, would you take over my exercises today?”  When I was in a coma, or just not with it at all.  I would dream that I could just pass everything over to Kim for a day or 2.  How wrong was I?!?!  I’m sure if I had asked & it was possible she would have one so in a heartbeat.  Unfortunately that’s not how things work.  I still question a few things about my cancer such as “Why was it me?” & “Was God testing me, or was the Devil trying to kill me?”  I’m pretty sure both of those questions will remain unanswered for a very long time.

I did my exercises & burned off some of the thanksgiving supper.  I really didn’t want to do them, but I could hear my exercise mat judging me a few feet away.

I burn the candle from both ends.  My exercises Monday–Friday seem to be taking longer, which means after I finish one of these I do stuff around the house, then hit the couch closer to 4:00 pm.  Kim & I have supper, then watch TV like it’s going “out of style”.  I watched a marathon of TV Monday night.   Next week there’s another ½ hour sitcom, then the week after that I’ll check out another ½ hour sitcom.  Monday nights are packed with TV shows.  I had to just stop preordering music from iTunes as well.  It seems like the calendar flipped to October & everybody got together & said “Hey, let’s pack all of the TV shows into Monday & a butt load of music releases in before the end of the year”

It feels like sensory overload right now!  These are the shows I record/try to watch on a Monday.  Every evening Kim & I watch “Ellen” as soon as Kim walks through the door, I’ll watch “Jimmy Fallon” & “Conan” the next day if I have time or save them for later on in the week.

 

“Kevin can wait”

“The Big Bang Theory”

“Supergirl”

“Scorpion”

“Gotham”

And coming up……………..

“The Odd Couple”

“Man with a Plan”

I wish everything was spread out evenly over the course of the week.  It’s almost stressful Monday nights.  We record “Dancing with the Stars” for Kim as well.  Thank goodness every week day isn’t like this.

 

Come November 18th I’ll have to stop buying music.  I have “Highly Suspect” on preorder & no more preorders from here on out.  Kim said stop so I will.  No Metallica or Bruno Mars until Kim gives me the OK.  I’m assuming there will be more releases but I’ll listen to them on our Apple Music account aka Satellite Radio x 1000 along with Metallica & Bruno Mars.  I’m terrible with money.

 

I know for sure that “Into Eternity” has recorded an album.  They also signed with a different label which could be holding back the release since they finished it in the summer of 2015.

 

Metallica & Bruno Mars, & whatever else is released, I’ll have to wait for despite a November 18th release date.

I’m not American or political at all, but I’m worried that Trump has made it this far.  I don’t care what the polls say, this election is still a “50/50” race.

No, I’m good.  Why are there so many “reboots”/”remakes” of movies from the past.  I’m not going to like a remake if I didn’t like the story 30 years?  I saw the remake of “The Jungle Book”.  I didn’t like the cartoon movie as a kid & I did not enjoy the live remake of the same story I didn’t like as a child.  Now they’re doing a remake of “Aladdin”?  Don’t screw it up, actually do what you want with it, I’ll watch the Disney cartoon from the 1990s.

I WILL MISS THE ROCK IT OUT BLOG UNTIL IT’S RETOOLED & BACK IN ACTION

Today’s exercise was brought to you by “Dream Theater” the album “Black Clouds & Silver Linings”

I fell asleep to “Smashing Pumpkins” the album “Gish”. Listened to the entire “Megadeth” album but it didn’t do the trick. Same deal with the majority of the latest release by “Iron Maiden”

I really enjoyed the Rock It Out Blog. Sami & his team turned me onto “Chromeo”. I wouldn’t even know they existed without hearing about on his blog. I’ve never heard of them since, but I heard them on that blog & it kind of woke me up to different music that’s out there. I didn’t agree with everything on the Rock It Out Blog, but it gave me a well needed update. “Hey there’s a TON of other stuff out there & there’s no harm in taking a peek at what’s out there”. Worst thing that could happen, I take 5 minutes to see if I like something I’d never heard of before. I don’t necessarily like the 3 previous “Chromeo” albums but the album “White Women” was the most sugary pop album I had ever heard, & I really like it! Consequence of Sound is still there with daily updates & this is just a hiatus for Sami, he’ll be back.

Black Sabbath” in the news

Music charts are laughable! More people listened to this rather than that. Good for whoever is involved with the album………………as for fans, they’ll listen to what they like.

Call me what you want. I’m so sick of being bombarded by political verbal diarrhea. I don’t need to hear slimy politicians tell me what their opponent can’t do, or who’s voting for who? It’s your right to vote & that’s fine, remember it’s also my right not to vote.

I guess drummer, Matt Cameron, wasn’t busy enough with Soundgarden reuniting while continuing to handle the drum duties “haha I said duties” for Pearl Jam?

“Ten Commandos”

As a society. I think we now rely on technology more than we need to. What did people do before cell phones? My car just stopped on a grid road out to the cabin years ago, & it was late. I could have walked since I was close, but what would I have done if I was in the middle of nowhere? Sing “Queen”?

Rock It Out Blog & I agree. I don’t ever expect everyone reading this to like the music I like. I just say what I like. When people go out of their way to bash ANY music act, it just seems like a waste of time & energy. Just say “Ah, no thanks” & move on.

Busy weekend here. Friday we attended a funeral of a distant family member. Saturday was my grandmother’s birthday party. I’ve been to a 2 year old’s birthday party & my grandmother’s birthday party, no I didn’t drink too much to cause any signs of a hangover either time but I’m tired after both! Sunday was Thanksgiving supper here with Kim’s family. I got to see a lot of people this weekend as well as eating WAY TOO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Finished off the weekend with a Blue Jays win, & supper at my parents house, meatballs with rice & a salad on the side. My grandparents were there along with my aunt from Airdrie

Songs I like, “Silverchair” Not a huge fan but I own 4 albums, that I rarely listen to, & in university we did play one of their songs in our cover band.
