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

Music from this weekend!  “Greta Van Fleet”, “Nothing But Thieves”, “Live”, “A Perfect Circle”, “Coheed and Cambria”, & “Halestorm”

 

Really quiet here.  I realized on Friday I had some other TV shows recorded on our PVR.  I watched them & one episode of “Making a Murderer” before Kim got home.  She had many TV shows to watch on the PVR, of course we watched “The Elle Degeneres Show” first, as usual.

Saturday I moved from our bed to our couch & kitchen.  Cereal, yogurt & rum, TV (not all at the same time) later on.  Then 4 episodes of “Making a Murderer”.  Kim is sort of watching it too.

Today, Kim got up & went for coffee with Jolene.  The 4 of us met each other in SIAST.  Corey & Jolene were engaged a week or 2 before us & married roughly 4 months after us.  Really good people, great friends, & awesome parents to our “niece” & “nephew”.

Went over to our friends’ place this afternoon, Chris & Laurie’s for an afternoon visit, also really good people, friends, & they also have 2 cool kids.

Now it’s get ready for the week time.

 

Review of “Greta Van Fleet” & “The Struts”.  The Struts’ 2nd album is not actually out until October 26th.

CLASSIC BANDS   PART 1

These are the masterpieces.  Great bands that I like from before my time!

“Queen”

 

“Led Zeppelin”

That’s why ‘Physical Graffiti’ is my favourite LZ album

 

“The Beatles”

I saw ‘Our Lady Peace’ cover this, & now ‘The White’ album is my favourite ‘Beatles’ album!

 

“Stevie Wonder”

Stevie Wonder’s ‘Songs in the Key of Life’ is easily my favourite Stevie Wonder album.  I should just add this song to it…

 

“The Police”

 

“Pink Floyd”

 

“The Jackson 5”

 

“Alice Cooper”

HIGHWAY COLLISION/THE POLICE

NO THIS WAS NOT INTENTIONAL.  I WROTE ABOUT THE BAND BEFORE I FIGURED OUT THE SUBJECT.

I fell asleep to “Tesseract” the album “Polaris”     iTunes describes them as ambient/math/progressive metal

I exercised to “Elvis Costello & the Attractions” their greatest hits.

 

There was a terrible collision between Tisdale & Nipawin (Northern/middle) of Saskatchewan on Friday.  A junior hockey team from Humboldt, Saskatchewan were in a bus (going north) en route to Nipawin to play a game.  They collided with a semi-truck on the highway (going south).  15 people on the bus died the head coach, stat keeper, radio broadcaster, & 12 players ranging in age of 16-21.  This past weekend all of Canada stopped & took notice of this horrible tragedy.  Even watching baseball on the weekend, there were many mentions of this tragedy in Saskatchewan.  My thoughts go out to the families, & friends of those who lost someone in this collision & those that survived while watching friends die.  The Prime Minister of Canada was in Humboldt to attend the mass memorial service in Humboldt Sunday evening.

What can we learn from this?  If anybody on the bus had a gun, it wouldn’t have saved their lives.

Only once have I agreed with Trump.  “Take the guns, then deal with stuff after”.  Hopefully the kids, my heroes, marching can prevent a mass shooting.  People with guns who can’t live without them will say something like “Hmm, what ya gonna do?”

There’s already more than enough death in our world without guns, you don’t NEED them (unless you’re hunting, a single shot riffle should be enough), some people WANT them.

 

THE POLICE

I don’t know if my parents got me hooked on “The Police” or not?  I don’t even know if they had any of albums by “The Police”?  I don’t even remember when I got “The Police’s” greatest hits?  That’s all that I have of them.  14 songs, I think I’m good with that.  You know instantly if it’s Sting or The Police.  His voice is so recognizable, especially if it’s “Roxanne”…………..

 

All in one night?  They’re going to need 12 or 13+ years for an explanation of their process!

I fell asleep to “Diemonds” the third album “Never Wanna Die”, then “The Damned Things”

I exercised/stretched to “Big Wreck” the album “In loving memory of”

Don’t feel as though you need to click on every link.

Remember that old mantra we learned as kids “Sticks & stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.”  Totally wrong!  A broken bone will heal in time, when you speak to someone you have to pay attention as to what you’re saying to someone new, or what might really offend a family member or friend.  “The pen is mightier than the sword!”  Still not true but much closer to reality.  A person might take words poorly, intended or not intended.  If it just comes out by mistake, you’re hooped, better start apologizing ASAP.  Hopefully the individual can let go of what was said.  Fortunately, I have great friends & family, who have forgiven me for things I said in 2011 & 2012.

7500 crunches, 500 squats, 400 pushups, & 350 leg lifts

Pushups & leg lifts numbers were the ones that suffered on Tuesday.  A normal week should be; 7500 crunches, 500 squats, 350, leg lifts, & 320 pushups.

I over compensated on the pushups this week as I was making up for Tuesday.  Next week I’ll try to do 100 pushups a day & maybe 100 leg lifts a day, eventually the squats might go up, the squats might take a while though?  Every day starts out with 100 squats, 70 leg lifts, 1500 crunches, & 80 pushups.

Not having breakfast before I exercise is how I motivate myself. No juice, coffee or hardboiled egg until my exercises are done, just water.  I’m just lacking a bit of my get up, & go at the moment.

 

It sickens me to hear about a shooting in the USA!  I used to get disgusted & sad about someone’s life ending that way.  Then it was just anger.  Now, I’m just numb, because I know in a week or two there will be another one.  I don’t like that.  It has just become so common in the USA.  I record everything we watch & a few weeks ago I started recording stuff on a west coast feed l to avoid the “Breaking News” interrupting a show every week.  I don’t think of it as “Breaking News” if it happens so often?  Really everybody’s killing or picking on someone else for being different?  WHY?  It makes no sense to me.  I don’t have a cell phone, so you had better shoot me?  Wait I’m also Christian.  Better fill me with bullets!???????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Yes, I got these 2 albums last night on preorder from iTunes.  I started listening to “The Pretty Reckless” & thought “I can’t asleep to this, it’s too good!  I need to sit & give this a good listen”.  All of this half way through the 4th song.

 

Sorry, a few more Alter Bridge album reviews.  I find “Blackbird” to be their least ambitious release, & one of the most over rated album in their short 5 album existence, but that’s just me.  It’s a good album, just not my favourite.

It’s a good album.  Check it out if you like rock or border line metal, make your own opinion about it!

My goodness!  Could I borrow like $5,000 with 0% interest from someone for iTunes please?  There’s possibly 6 albums being released before the end of the year?  I’ve already funded iTunes for the year.  I guess I’ll have to live on “blah” Apple Music until we can afford it?

Weird/early baseball game today?

 

I was looking at “Suicide Squad” to purchase.  I’ve heard nothing but bad things about the movie.  I look on iTunes & it’s rated terribly, Amazon reviews are very positive 4/5 stars.  Batman vs. Superman was rated terribly also, after seeing it in the theater, I bought it ASAP on iTunes & I’ve likely watched the “Ultimate Edition” 6 or 7 times.  Remember, I had 2 weeks without a computer.  I watched movies & read a lot.

I guess I do reviews in a way, “Check it out” or “Stay away” from this thing.  I guess that’s my take on whatever the subject is.  So I encourage you to check out whatever you like either on this blog or from a friend.  I’m not always right about what you may or may not like.  Batman vs. Superman is hands down the best comic book movie I’ve seen.  That includes “300” & “300 Rise of an Empire” or at least as good, but that’s just my take on it.

 

Oh, happy day!  Yesterday immediately after I posted the blog, I checked iTunes.  Highly Suspect finally had the preorder for their new (2nd) album, “The Boy Who Died Wolf”  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

In Flames shared it….

 

Heard some of the outro music from the new Big Wreck album on Facebook.  Sounding REALLY good, looking forward to it.  Nice follow up to this album………….

At some point in the early ‘90s I figured that my favourite rap songs were the same music as my parents’ rock music.  I didn’t know what sampling was but I knew a few songs were really similar.

Maybe you should tell me I can’t do it? Yesterday I was frustrated, today is a different world. Someone telling me I can’t do this or that, makes me want to prove to whoever it is that they’re wrong! My exercises are difficult & do take up a large portion of my day (1 ½ or 2 ½ hours). It depends on what exercises I’m doing that day?

Things are definitely improving as far as my workouts go. I’m getting faster at doing them, which means I’ll likely add another exercise doing 4 things a day instead of 3 next week or the week after. I was up to 17 therapy sessions a week in the WRC. I’m confident that I can at least try doing 4 exercises a day for a total of 20 a week. Right now I’m only at 15 a week, so I don’t think 20 is out of the question?

I HOPE THIS WORKS, IF IT DOESN’T……SORRY I’M TRYING DIFFERENT STUFF.

I tried to fall asleep to “ The Police” a 14 song Greatest Hits album. Didn’t work so I tried roughly ½ of a “Simon & Garfunkel” album from a 3 CD box set I own, didn’t work either. I finally fell asleep to “Rage Against the Machine” the self titled album.

I woke up at 3:00 am & tried to fall asleep to “Soundgarden” the album “Badmotorfinger” no dice, already at 23 degrees celsius in here & it will just get warmer. I got up just before 4:00 am.

I didn’t exercise yesterday. Today I exercised to “The Watchmen” all 5 albums on shuffle!

THIS WEEK FELT LIKE A MONTH TO ME!!

The most anticipated regular season baseball 4 game series between the Blue Jays & Yankees in New York was rained out last night. I was looking forward to planting my butt on the couch to watch the first of 4 games. It’s been postponed until tonight, then a double header on Saturday. We’ll see if it happens tonight, the forecast in New York doesn’t look good as the play by play announcers said.

Kim’s been sick, she’s been home Wednesday, Thursday & today. Everywhere I look there’s phlegm, phlegm, phlegm, phlegm, phlegm, etc. I think our tissue box is near empty. When either one of us goes down, we both do. I went down for 4.5 years & took Kim with me. When she’s sick, I have to step up my game!

We sat on the couch to binge watch Scandal on Netflix. We started it on Monday & we’re about half way through the 2nd season. Ellen Degeneres was right on the money with that show, not because Portia is on it later on, but because it’s so good! We’re watching it some more today.

Kim’s getting better. I guess we’ll see if she’s up for celebrating a friend’s birthday tomorrow?

Yes, music in schools should always be encourage. It is the universal language & it is mentally stimulating! (Well look at me & my big words). Campbell Collegiate is/was well known for having 1 of the best music programs for high school for western Canada. At least when I was there in the ’90s.

The ’80s coming back? That was a bad decade for everyone! Spandex shorts, neon colours, flip top hats, big hair, loads of make up on boys or girls, etc.

Please tell me someone will cover this & not just a dude on American Idol last night…

I did a few of my picks for classic ’90s rock albums now here’s loudwire.com picks for ’90s rock albums. A lot of these I totally agree with. My list was just a few that would likely make it.
http://ultimateclassicrock.com/90s-rock-albums/

Worst to first Smashing Pumpkin albums
http://diffuser.fm/worst-to-first-every-smashing-pumpkins-album/

These songs are from the number 1 album on the website, I would have to agree with the number 1 album. Ahh the ’90s….& “grunge” music!! I was 13 when this album was released. Dang it I’m old.

Dave Grohl helps sick fan with his bucket list of meeting the band.

That’s all fine & dandy Apple but I want to own my music not subscribe to a “radio station” for my entire life. If others want to that’s fine. That’s not what I want. I guess “The Rolling Stones” were right?

^^Almost makes me want to play video games again. I’m dreadfully terrible at video games. Sport games or “God of War” I was decent at though. “Turtles in Time” for SNES I finished, it was pretty easy.

Hayley William of Paramore has a trailer for a new TV series.

Kim has my “Kryptonite” in the freezer. Ben & Jerry’s “Half Baked”! I haven’t touched it though in the 3 days it’s been here. Right beside my tortilla wraps that I have with chicken & sun dried tomatoes.

When my iPod Classic 160gb dies I’m done with my iPod. I listen to my iTunes through the home stereo. Apple doesn’t need my money. I’m not paying more for less space on a hard drive on an iPod touch. I don’t want an MP3 player that does everything but a cell phone. I don’t take pictures of people because I don’t like to be photographed. So when it dies, I’m out.

I hit another mini milestone today during my exercising. I finally broke a sweat today. 20+ push ups, planking, better yoga today than ever & 300 crunches in set’s of 50.

I got a really good comment from one of my nurses at Wascana. “You look happy…”. I am very happy & I’ve been screwing up my “medication” this week. I haven’t been taking the wrong pills at the wrong time. I haven’t had my happy pills the last 3 days.

Songs I like. “Crash Test Dummies”

This is on the first Dumb & Dumber soundtrack

I haven’t listened to the 3 albums I have of theirs in decades but when they were released on CD, I listened to them a TON!
