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

Music throughout the weekend.  “Pearl Jam”, “Queens of the Stone Age”, “A Perfect Circle”, “Chromeo”

Friday was tame.  Finished my exercises for the week, did very little stuff that needed to be done.  Watched the first episode of the “Newsroom”, then watched the Blue Jays give away a game to the Tampa Bay Rays.

Saturday I stayed in bed too long.  Kim went out to grab a few things.  I got up & used our instant pot to hard boil some eggs for the week.  Then I watched the Blue Jays try to lose another game but they got the win, it was sloppy but it still counts as a win.

Folded & put away some laundry, quiet weekend.  We watched some crave TV for a bit, then Kim rented “On the Basis of Sex” the story of how Ruth Bater Ginsberg got to where she is today, despite sexist laws.  I could tell I was catching a flu or cold.  I was getting warmer & aching in my bones.

We got the “Crave TV” app last week.  Kim is almost done the series “A Handmaid’s Tale” & I’ve just started “The Newsroom”

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   First scene of the first episode.  This was before Trump’s time.

I got the aching in my bones & joints again, no fever yet, “phlegm” though today.

No blog post until Thursday & then late on the following Monday.

 

ROB ZOMBIE (former singer of White Zombie)

I know right now a PILE of metal fans are freaking out, because of this next sentence.  I much prefer “Rob Zombie” as a solo artist to the band “White Zombie”.  He’s likely thrown in to the “Nu Metal” genres because he doesn’t fit into any other specific metal sub-genres.

If you ever see him in an interview, WATCH IT!  He may look odd with his dreads & clothing choice, but HOLY COW is he a smart guy, & a really good interview!  He’s a shock rocker, he’s toured with “Alice Cooper” & currently with Marilyn Manson, and no I’m not a fan of Marilyn Manson.

When he toured with “Alice Cooper” they’d watch the other guys set, & try to out-shock each other the next night.

“Rob Zombie” is also a writer & director known for graphic horror movies.  One of his first movies was called “The Devil’s Rejects”

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!          

I did get to see him open for “Ozzy Osbourne” in Saskatoon in 2006?  For me, “Rob Zombie” was just a little bit better.

I have 2 studio albums of his & a greatest hits album.  I’ll give you a sampling from his greatest hits.  Please just assume there’s offensive & sexual LANGUAGE!!!!!

I just don’t like the idea of free music. Yes, I download torrents before I was sick. Then when I was able to leave the rehabilitation hospital for a few hours, Kim would take me to a store to purchase a couple of CDs. “Don’t you have this already as a torrent download?” she’d ask me. “Yes, I do but I just don’t feel right by not paying for it” was my response.

Now the majority of torrent sites are gone as is Napster which started this entire thing. So what would I do if I was a member of an upcoming group? Record the first successful album & put it everywhere, then tour like mad anywhere & everywhere. Record the 2nd album, keep it as hush hush as possible. Announce a tour, sell the CD only at the show. Once the tour is over, then put it on everything, streaming sites, iTunes, CD & Vinyl. From then on tour first, then release the album on the artist(s) website for $19, once the group is well known.

Why did you start playing in a band or singing as a solo artist? Because most of those people wanted to hear something a little different than what was out there or that’s just what they want to do for a living & not have a 9-5 job.

I haven’t thought this whole thing through yet. Somebody will upload the album to a site for everyone. I’m not a famous or unknown musician as it is. This is more than likely not going to work, but it’s all I’ve got off of the top of my head.

The Blue Jays won last night in San Francisco 4-0 terrible batting, AWESOME pitching by left handed starting pitcher J. A. Happ. He almost finished the game, just couldn’t get the last out of the game, but he did get the first 26 outs of the game with only a few hits allowed.

Jose Bautista is rumoured to have said he wants $217,000,000 over 7 years and Edwin Encarnacion is rumoured to have asked for $119,000,000 over 7 years. Both of their contracts are done at the end of the year. I say let them test the free agent market. They both had better start showing why they’re worth that much? At the moment I’d shave off $8,000,000 a year from what they want. A really good batting average is .300. Jose Bautista is currently hitting .207 with 6 home runs. Edwin Encarnacion is hitting . 306 with 6 home runs. The Blue Jays will show them the money when they start producing more! Before this afternoons game the Toronto Blue Jays are treading water with 18W-17L. I don’t know what’s wrong with them? Well I know their big problems are the bullpen/relief pitchers & their offense, I couldn’t tell you how to fix those problems though.

The Agonist are back in the studio already & recording vocals? AWESOME!

“Time to track some vocals!
