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

5 day exercise total; 600 leg lifts, 450 crunches, 450 squats, 300 back flexes, 475 curls, 150 tricep lifts w/ weights,  yoga, & stretching.  I’m still trying to figure out the numbers with the weights.

I fell asleep to “Them Crooked Vultures”, followed “The Watchmen” the album “Silent Radar”

I exercised to.  Nothing totally forgot to grab the remote before I started exercising

 

I don’t mind this exercise stuff at all.  I do feel better & more alert a few minutes after I exercise.  Like having a cup of coffee in the morning.  I drink very little coffee lately.  I’m not sure why, I just don’t crave it & with the combination of coffee & my pills, I get dry mouth.  Even with just my pills, the only side effect I notice is dry mouth.  Coffee just adds to the problem.

I was speaking with a friend of mine who is a body builder regarding my eating habits.  I’m not trying to look beefy, just wanting to stand on my own.  I’m almost doing what he recommended.  I just need to have small meals 6 times a day instead of the 5 I have during the day.  He didn’t say this but I need my sugar intake to decrease & stick to just natural sugar such as fruit & not ice cream or cookies as often.

Weekends I’ll have a minimal amount of alcoholic beverages, like 4 for the weekend on occasion I’ll avoid it on a weekend, & have no desire for it.

I’m not really cutting anything out, just paying attention as to what & how much of it I’m putting into my body.

8 weeks until they can fix our air conditioner.  They need to order a valve from Texas.  Our building manager went out of his way to buy us a portable air conditioner.  He didn’t have to do that, but we’re happy he did that for us.

 

Something is EXTREMELY wrong/not working with my Facebook account since March or April?  I’ve sent Facebook many messages asking if they could please fix the problem, but it seems as though they’re not willing to fix the problem I’m having.

I got my brand new iPod touch that you’ll need for the update in the fall. It holds 256 GB.  All of my iTunes are on it (128 G) & it loaded very fast Wednesday evening, when Kim & I set it up & had to switch our home sharing to 2 apple IDs.  I was the second user on her account before.  Everything is great with it, now I just have to learn how to use a touch screen.  I’ve used my father’s cell to text mom on our way home from Calgary & I really don’t like using them.  Apple should bring back the iPod Classic.

Brian Doherty (Big Wreck 2nd guitarist) lost his battle with cancer.  R.I.P.  Thanks for the music you left us with.  You will be missed.

Pre-Season CFL football Thursday evening.  YAY it’s back!  Roughriders lost but it was a very entertaining game regardless.  Winnipeg beat us 35W-29L.  It’s only pre-season though.  I missed the Jays game Thursday night though.

 

BARONESS

An American metal band out of Virginia.  The group consists of 4 people but it has been a revolving door of members.  Other than that, I really don’t know much about them.  I have 2 albums by them.  Their albums are titled as colours.  I have an album called “Purple” & a double album called “Yellow & Green”.  Others on iTunes are “Blue Record”, “Red”, & “Gold & Grey” which is currently available for preorder June 14th.  I bought these 2 albums long before my wife had an Apple Music account.  The preview on iTunes suckered me in.  They’re not terrible albums, they just don’t have much lasting power to make me go back & listen to them.

 

2012   YELLOW & GREEN

 

2015   PURPLE

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.

HEADACHES

I fell asleep to many albums, Brewster continually jumped off of the bed throughout the night. “Them Crooked Vultures”, “Lacuna Coil” the album “Delirium”, & “Tremonti” the album “Dust”

There are 2 or 3 more that I can’t remember. I didn’t sleep much & Kim slept less. Brewster’s fine, he’s sleeping of course!

I exercised to “Coheed & Cambria” ½ of the album “The Colour Before the Sun”, “Queens of the Stone Age” the entire album “Songs for the Deaf”, then ½ of “Candlebox” “Love Stories & Other Musings”

I get very nervous when I have a headache. Sunday, February 3rd 2008 was the most painful headache I’ve ever had & it was on the back, near my neck at the bottom of my skull. Then on that Tuesday I was rushed to the hospital & diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer.

I had a mild headache Tuesday night & it was still there Wednesday morning. I was freaking out to myself. Kim gave me some Tylenol & it went away. Normal mild headache by my forehead. I was nervous until it quickly went away after the Tylenol.

I guess The Tragically Hip will be in Regina August 20th at The Capital.

I turned this on yesterday. I miss these guys. We played at least 3 shows with them when they toured across Canada, from Ontario. I really like the 2 albums I have of their’s. Too bad they broke up after 2 albums & a crap load of touring. I was pulling for them to make it big. Really good guys & a really good live band!

ALMOST GOT TO MY DAILY TOTAL TODAY/BREWSTER ENTERTAINS ME.

I fell asleep to “Oasis” the album “Definitely Maybe” woke up to pee at 4:00 am, crawled back into bed & listened to “Oasis” the album “Be Here Now”

Emptied the dishwasher & made breakfast to “Candlebox” the album “Disappearing in Airports” then put on “Coldplay” the album “A Head Full of Dreams”

I exercised to “Trivium” all albums on shuffle other than “The Crusade”, just the instrumental song “The Crusade”.

They’ve got 6 other full length studio albums I like & own. 4 actual CDs & 2 from iTunes. I own the CD “The Crusade” but I’m not a fan of that album.

I was close to getting through my regular daily exercise. I should get there by Thursday or Friday?

Our dog, Brewster, is hilarious! All 12 ½ pounds of him make me laugh out loud anytime I see him doing something odd! Late last week or maybe on the weekend I could tell he was dreaming. We were in bed, Brewster sleeps with us, I had my noise canceling ear buds in yet I could hear him? He was asleep but he was barking at almost full volume for a minute. Usually it’s 10-20 seconds of quiet barking. Whatever he was dreaming about he wanted it bad! He didn’t even wake up when I was busting my gut out loud.

The next day he was sleeping in his dog bed, barking. Just his normal dream bark, but I laughed. I always think he’s dreaming about squirrels. “I’m gonna get you squirrel” at least that’s what I like to think when flopped out on his side barking & twitching his legs!

I love it when he tries to “fix” his bed. All curled up in a circle in his dog bed, then you hear & see him barking & twitching all 4 legs to get it as perfect as he can. For the first time yesterday I saw him pushing his bed with his head across the living room. I chuckled out loud again! He’s my main source of entertainment!

AWESOME! Another Canadian band going on tour & skipping right passed Saskatchewan & Manitoba! Sad! A typical Canadian tour is Montreal, Toronto, & Vancouver (some times Calgary & Edmonton). I’ll go to Calgary or Edmonton if it’s someone I really want to see, the other locations are a 2 day drive. Montreal is even further. Will I be seeing this tour? No! If they were coming to Regina I would. Saskatoon is 2.5 hours away but I’ve made that drive too many times since 1996 to see I Mother Earth. It’s a really long/boring drive. It certainly doesn’t feel like 2.5 hours, more like 8 hours!

GMOs from a farmer’s mouth. BOOM DROP THE MIC! There has been thousands of scientific studies, & farmers, most of them I assume use GMO seeds. As for taste, that’s pretty subjective. I like seafood, Kim doesn’t. I don’t like potatoes, Kim does.

http://findourcommonground.com/food-facts/gmo-foods/

Do what you want. I’m trusting science & a farmer, not Neil Young or a healthy 14 year old. The last www.youtube.com link is long if you like skip to 1 hour & 36 minutes for the results of the debate if you like. If you’re growing your own food are you sure the seeds aren’t already modified? I’ve heard, I’m not positive on this, that none GMO seeds aren’t easily available to the general public? Like I said this is what I will do. You don’t have to do the same. Do what you feel is best for you.

Opeth has another studio report. Dream Theater songs are long, but Opeth’s songs can be even longer! You really do have to set aside a free hour to listen to an Opeth album & it’s not tap your feet music!

BASEBALL RANT, THEN MUSIC NEWS

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Matt Mays & El Torpedo”!

Everybody wants to know are the Toronto Blue Jays going to sign free agent pitcher David Price? It’s a 50/50 shot, cross that bridge when you get there. If they do Edwin Encarnacion is up for free agency at the end of next season as well as José Bautista. All of them will want $20-$30 million a year to be locked in until the end of their careers. You have 3 first basemen in Encarnacion, Justin Smoak, & Chris Colabello. Edwin Encarnacion has the biggest price tag by millions of $, & the newly acquired & signed Short Stop Troy Tulowitski will be making $20,000,000 a year for the next 4 years. Yet you have someone young, Ryan Goins, who’s glove is reminiscent of Roberto Alomar & is able to play 2B, SS, or 3B. He may not have a powerful swing but he gets on base. Whether they sign David Price or not, the end of the 2016 season could turn out to be a rebuilding year from 2017 on. I say throw money at David Price & either Bautista or Encarnacion. Maybe think about Tulowitzki at SS. I have nothing against any of the players personally, but I’d trade R.A. Dickey and Josh Thole also. Dickey has no clue where his one pitch (Knuckle ball) is going to end up & Thole is his personal catcher, who adds minimal offense. That would free up a PILE of cash. You’ve got the bones of a World Series winner the question is are you going to act on it now or let it slip away? Don’t forget the revenue increase just by making it to the playoffs, millions of viewers on TV, millions of fans in the seats, & millions sold on merchandise. Way more than in 1993!

The fact that Toronto sports analysts are talking about baseball on call in shows in November is a GIGANTIC NEON sign to Rogers Communications. You’re a multi billion dollar organization. Maybe open the purse strings & strike when the Jays are HOT?

In Flames roadie documentary. In Flames are classified as a Swedish melodic death metal band. When I saw them on the final tour by ‘Sounds of the Underground’, an underground metal tour that James & I were at to see “Trivium”, the In Flames sound check was HILARIOUS & DISTURBING! A roadie came out to test the microphone & said “The little boys ass. The ass of a little boy” in a very thick Swedish accent!

American tour dates with Anthrax opening for Lamb of God. I always put on my iPod when I sleep & Lamb of God put me to sleep last night!

I know………it’s weird. Metal or hard rock has been my go to sleep music since I got my first CD player/Boom box.

My Grandparents, on my mother’s side of the family, got me a walkman in the 1980s & a cassette with it. Alabama. I try to avoid country music because so much of it has that southern twang to it. I began recording songs to cassettes from the radio in my bedroom. I do remember recording ‘Prince’ on AM radio. When 1300 CJME was a rock station.

Songs I like, “Them Crooked Vultures” Dave Grohl (Nirvana/Foo Fighters) on drums, John Paul Jones on bass (Led Zeppelin) & Josh Homme on guitar & lead vocals (Queens of the Stone Age). I skipped past “Tenacious D” for 2 reasons. I don’t listen to them that often & it would be difficult to find appropriate songs.

SUPER GROUP?

Today’s workout was brought to you by the letter “H”, as in “Highly Suspect”. This is one of the 3 songs out of 10 without language.

My super group is already partially together, “Them Crooked Vultures”! Dave Grohl (Nirvana & Foo Fighters) drums, John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) & Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) guitar & vocals.

Who would I add to that already impressive line up? Ian Fletcher Thornley (Big Wreck/Thornley) & Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge/Slash/The Mayfield Four).

Myles Kennedy would be the lead vocalist & guitar when needed. Ian Thornley would be 2nd guitar to Josh Homme. Anyone & everyone would be a back up vocalist! That, for me, would be a mind blowing line up!

Who is in your super group? I want to know more about music, who is your favourite artist(s) or Super Group?

I spoke about Green Day releasing this documentary, here’s NME’s take on it.

When I heard this as a single, I knew instantly that I didn’t need to purchase this album, it may have ended up being an album I’d buy & never listen to?

This song has been everywhere with the release of a new solo “Chris Cornell” album. I checked it out on iTunes & wasn’t interested in the rest of the album, nothing sounded similar to the single. However, it did lead me to his prior/3rd solo album that was released in 2009, when I was in the hospital & didn’t hear of it. I liked that album & bought it for a WHOPPING $5.99 on iTunes. In a round about way the single worked! I bought a Chris Cornell album! Maybe it wasn’t his recent release, but it worked. FYI Chris Cornell is the singer from grunge band Soundgarden as well as a previous member of Audioslave. Here’s the current single, then one song from the album I bought. These 2 songs sound nothing like Soundgarden or Audioslave.

Thanks to my mother-in-law Shirley Olson for digging this up for me!!!

OK, I’m the total opposite of this. Maybe you are maybe you aren’t, no big deal. I’m not a fan of Arcade Fire.

I’m not really a fan of Jonny Depp. I am intrigued by his upcoming film “Black Mass”. I’m in the midst of watching a Netflix documentary about Whitey Bulger, a Boston gang banger who killed TONS of people. “Whitey” on Netflix, at least on Canadian Netflix.
