BRAIN CANCER vs. ALS

I’d do more but that’s a TON of links to load. Sorry if they double, I’ll try to fix them but no guarantee? My back is annoying but I increase my exercise to my “normal” total daily!

I fell asleep to 2 albums, the 2 most recent albums by “Candlebox” first “Love Stories & Other Musings” from 2012. Then the album “Disappearing in Airports” released in April of 2016. Woke up in the middle of the night to pee, gotta stop that, & put on “Chevelle” the new album “The North Corridor”

I exercised to “Portal” the album “Blood Red Tape” My brother was listening to them in his car when we were with him. I think he said they’re an independent group from Alberta?

They have 3 albums on iTunes at the moment. This is the only one I’ve purchased so far.

Brain cancer & ALS aren’t a competition. This is how I look at it though, in my situation. I could have survived or died because of brain cancer. I don’t know much about ALS. From what I know, it ends poorly, to put it lightly. Surviving brain cancer I can work on things, everything. You can look at that as overwhelming or just start somewhere & chip away at it as long as you can. ALS, from what I know, is more of a “OH MY GOODNESS! What’s going to go first?” Once it’s gone you can’t really do anything about it, that would be terrifying to me! Sure I felt overwhelmed & angry at first, but I’m alive, I can work on myself, mentally & physically. Eventually it COULD be fine? Sure the odds are stacked against me. Do you gamble? The odds are stacked against anyone in a casino playing any game. I’m alive, it could be worse.

I have to admit, after 2 weeks of just stretching & resting my back, it’s difficult to get back into my routine of exercise, food, blog, TV. For years that was easy, sweaty, but easy & somewhat gratifying. I had never enjoyed exercising, especially cardio! I can ride an exercise bike forever, walking with my walker seems like too much effort for very little gain to me. When I lived at my parents place the recumbent exercise bike was in the basement. I’d pop in a “Lord of the Rings” movie & pedal for 3 hours no problem, I can still bike for an hour or more.

I get that musicians want to share what influenced them by doing a cover song. I loved playing cover songs live! That meant I didn’t have to write lyrics, just remember better lyrics. Foo Fighters do this for the majority of their B Sides on singles. You get a single from the album, a live song & either a cover song or a song that was cut from the album. Here are some original songs followed by their cover song by someone else. Some are good, some are OK, some are terrible, & some are “OK, why mess with a classic?”

Almost forgot about this one!

^^All of this is just off the top of my head!

A STAYCATION IS REALLY NOT THAT RELAXING

I fell asleep to “Rob Zombie” his “Greatest Hits” which includes some “White Zombie” work he had done before. First I listened to roughly ½ of “Tom Cochrane” the album “Mad Mad World” then roughly ½ of “Walk off the Earth” the album “Sing it All Away”.

This is what the theme song for (Star Wars) should be if they needed a different one ”Use The Force” by Jamiroquai

I’m sitting here doing nothing since my body is tired & sore. My mind does not agree though. I keep thinking I need to do more but I feel far to tired to workout yet. I hate working out, but I know I need to! I look at my exercise mat & it’s just sitting there mocking me. That’s what it feels like at least. I’m just tired & want to nap when this is done!

Masterpiece review from Monday

If you like “Tremonti” or “Alter Bridge” great! If you don’t like them great! You should at least know who they are or who you don’t like?!!? I’m guessing they’re not well known since they tour in Europe mostly & very rarely in North America?

HOW WILL THE BLUE JAYS DO THIS YEAR? I DONT KNOW?

I fell asleep to “Tom Cochrane” the album “Mad, Mad. World” then “Dream Theater” the new album “The Astonishing”

I exercised to”Foo Fighters” the album “There is Nothing Left to Lose”

Jose Bautista calls out the Blue Jays’ owners knowing his contract is done at the end of this season. I think he just became a trade able player come July 31st pending on where the Blue Jays are in the standings. He didn’t say how long or how much he asked for. I assume it’s in the neighbour hood of $25,000,000 a year for 5 years. In his fifth year of that contract he’ll be 41 years old & his numbers likely wont be that good. I’d let him dangle & see who wants him & what can the Jays get in return? If their budget isn’t raised for the next few years they wont be able to afford him. Their budget for this year is roughly $145,000,000 with 5 guys including Bautista earning $17,000,000-$25,000,000 next year! A teacher should be making that kind of money, not people that PLAY A GAME FOR A LIVING!!!!!!!! Sign him, don’t sign him, it really doesn’t matter. Then Blue Jays analyst Gregg Zaun chimes in “…..he needs to put food on the table…”???????????????? That’s some expensive food! Maybe don’t have 2 plates of steak & lobster for 3 meals a day? Any average Joe doesn’t pull in that kind of cash? It’s like you’re winning the lottery every year????????? Trade the 2 big sluggers at the deadline, rebuild the depleted farm system, pick up someone capable & cheaper. Time to play “Moneyball”!!!! I want $8,000,000 for being an OK cribbage player! Give me $1-$100 I’d be happy & grateful. So how are the Jays going to do this year? I really don’t care as long as it’s entertaining.

Yes, there are far too many artists that passed to early. For some it was they didn’t realize the cocaine, heroin, acid, meth, etc. They didn’t realize what they were putting into their bodies could kill them.

I’d like to know what her motive is to lie under oath? There likely isn’t one at the moment. I don’t know what the upside is of sending a producer to jail? I’d call it a closed case once he’s in jail.

July Talk is AWESOME!!!

I have 1 of Tom Cochrane’s albums, one I grew up with and borrowed from my parents. Nostalgia for me! “Mad Mad World”. He’s Canadian and from Lynn Lake, Manitoba. He was born in May of 1953, and he did the original of this song on this album in 1991…
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U3sMjm9Eloo Not “Rascal Flats”!

He had a ton of big hits. Everyone in high school was into Nirvana, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, any band involved with the “grunge” movement. At the time I was so opposed to that type of music. I guess it’s sort of a good thing. I like some stuff that people my age (34) might not know about. Like Tom Cochrane, The Eurythmics, my love of Tom Petty’s music, Dire Straits, The Edgar Winter Group, Prince, Counting Crows, B-52s, Tracy Chapman, etc. I heard “Frankenstein” by The Edgar Winter Group and it was instantly AWESOME! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cOM4no5C8EU

Here’s some Tom Cochrane from the album I own and other albums afterwards…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gg8o6SfgCk0 All 3 songs from the ’91 release of “Mad, Mad World”

These songs were on “Much Music”, Canada’s MTV, and radio as well.

Yeah, you had Tom Cochrane or Tom Cochrane & Red Rider, like Tom Petty or Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Neil Young or Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Matt Mays or Matt Mays & El Torpedo, etc.
