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

I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the album “The Colour and The Shape”
I exercised to “In Fames” the album “I, the Mask”

Well we know our dog Brewster is OK for now. We knew that he has a severe heart murmur & thought it was getting serious since he was coughing so hard that he would gag. Turns out that he has bronchitis. He’s on cough medicine, anti-biotics, & got a steroid shot at the vet Sunday evening. No heart medication for now. The cardiologist looked at his X-rays & his heart isn’t enlarged. His cough was getting pretty bad, sounded like a veteran smoker! I guess he is around 98 in dog years. Thought I’d have to get all parental on my almost 14 year old dog for smoking cigarettes!

When I mix Brewster’s dry food with his wet food, in order for him to gain some weight, we have a routine. “Hello my name is Chef Daddy. Today/This evening I will be preparing you some very stinky dog food. A mixture of your regular smelly dry food with a touch of smelly wet food. Special just for you”. He gets a look in his eyes as if he’s saying “Shut up and put down my bowl already!”

Brewster’s health news was a relief, I was expecting much worse. The house thing will happen when it happens, & just getting over that stuff mentally feels as though SO much weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. Hard to save cash when you live on disability, Canadian pension plan & are still under the poverty line.

Between mixing Brewster’s food, exercise, practicing guitar, keeping the house relatively clean, wrestling with Brewster on occasion, house hunting, & other regular everyday things. I keep myself quite busy during the day, then Kim comes home & we try to relax with some TV. It may not sound like much but remember I’m in a wheelchair which slows me down a bit.

He seems to have extra energy now. I like that he’s up & about, checking things out. He seems to keep track of me around here during the day. He’s more like a puppy than he was when I left my Rehab program in 2012. He wants to wrestle & play now. He used to be content just sleeping in his kennel most of the day.

I’m good, it’s Wednesday that’s about the time of the week that my body get’s stubborn & doesn’t want to exercise, but I “carry on…” as usual.


Drummer, Chris Adler, talks further about his departure from “Lamb of God”.
A country A Capella group. There was a short lived TV show called “The Sing-Off”. All A Capella groups, aka no instruments. Groups from 2 to 10 people. I tried, oh so long ago, in high school to form a barbershop quartet. I struggled terribly with & we called it off after 1 rehearsal of 45 minutes accomplishing a 4 bar song. Everybody singing different parts makes it tough, at least in a 4 part choir you’ve got a section of people for each part & not just one person on each part.

Pentatonix won a season on “The Sing-Off”, Home Free won a different season. Home Free is more country on the 2 albums I have. I hear they change it up live though. Please remember that when you hear a bass noise, that’s one guy, he’s impressive! I’d be watching “The Sing-Off” if it was still on.

Talented group, just too much country for me!

Holidays are close. Here’s “Home Free” with a Christmas tune. A Capella country music group. I think they won “The Sing Off” the following season after “Pentatonix”? Could be the year before?



I really like this “Finger Eleven” song. It’s a single so they shared it on facebook.


10 best Stone Temple Pilots songs. That’s a pretty solid list they could easily make it a top 15 or 20 list!



25 most influential grunge albums. I haven’t read it yet, I’m quite confident Nirvana’s “Nevermind will be number 1.



Scott Weiland’s last interview



Thom Yorke of “Radiohead” releases new music.


Not too bad but it sounds nothing like the first 3 albums or the 2nd & 3rd albums which I think are INCREDIBLE!


FANTASTIC!!! Eagles of Death Metal set to return to Paris with U2



For me, Ed Sheeran is just awesome! Here’s a live medley of original & cover tunes…


13 rock & metal signature moves!!! Gene Simmons of KISS will be ticked off when he sees this video. He’ll say “I invented all of those moves, they should pay me royalties for all of that!”



Drummer of Guns n’ Roses then Velvet Revolver speaks about former band member Scott Weiland. Radio interview inside the link. Scott Weiland will be missed, despite his collection of great music left with us/his fans. He’s close to being a house hold name for my generation! You may not like him but you probably know who he is/was. I will always prefer his material with Stone Temple Pilots. Nobody will come close to what Kurt Cobain did as creating a new genres of music. Scott Weiland was definitely near the top of that genres!



Our weekend was great. Jolene had a surprise birthday party. All cooked up by Corey & Kim. Kim took Jolene out for a late lunch & a pedicure. I stayed with Corey & Hannah. Corey was rushing around to get everything ready, Hannah was napping when we got there. Corey & I helped her make a birthday card for her mommy when she got up. Then people began to show up for the party around 3:00 pm. Kim & Jolene arrived just before 4:00 pm I think? In the end, everybody surprised Jolene. She didn’t have any idea her house would be full of good friends.



Songs I like, “Weezer” I have one album. This is a group that I should see if there is a greatest hits album or just make my own?
