I fell asleep to “Walk off the Earth” the album “Sing it all Away”, followed by “Trivium” the album “Ascendency”

Just a lot of stretching this week to “Pentatonix” their new EP of covers “Vol. IV”

YAY, multiple doctor appointments set for me.  MRI, Cancer clinic, “sedatives” for the MRI (I’m extremely claustrophobic), blood work, & hopefully a cortisone shot as well.  Pretty much routine stuff other than the MRI & cortisone shot.  I hope to breeze through all of this, & get back to exercising!

A bit of a mixed up day.  My regular doctor is having surgery & is off until May.  I need to get a prescription from him before then for my MRI.

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you.  Slow/Quiet week.  Stretching everyday & many routine appointments to come by the end of July.

I see no Tool album in the near future?  Tool is touring & then A Perfect Circle plans to tour & record.  There’s only so much singer Maynard James Keenan can do.  I assume his 3rd band (Puscifer) & his vineyard are taking a backseat at the moment?

24 years ago Thursday, Tool released their first full length album “Undertow”.  Before that was a live EP and there has been 4 full length albums up to the 2006 release “10,000 Days”.  We are now on our 11th year of waiting for a follow up to “10,000 Days”.  As fans we’ve waited 3,747 + a few leap year days for a new release from Tool.  This means we have a few more decades to wait if the album is coming in “10,000 Days”!

Sorry, just found a new band, & they are quite new.  They’re called “Halflives”, just thought I’d keep you posted.  1 album out next Friday, & 3 singles.  All available on iTunes.

They remind me of “Paramore”.  Fairly pop but just a bit heavier, at least that’s how I’d describe them.

 

I got “Pentatonix” & “The Watchmen” this morning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Both are FANTASTIC!!!!!!

Well, my Friday evening of BBB turned into a BBM instead.  Instead of Beer, Blizzard, & Baseball, it ended up being Beer, Blizzard & Movie.  Got a Growler from Rebellion of oatmeal stout & the blizzard of the month from DQ.  Sportsnet only played the pregame, the game itself was only available on SNE, SNOntario, & SNPacific.  The 3 Sportsnet channels we don’t get on our cable package.  Ah, well these games don’t count, nothing counts until they play in Baltimore on Monday.  Last preseason game was Saturday in Montreal.  Blue Jays vs. The Pittsburg Pirates.  I’m anxious for Monday!

Once I gave up looking for the game on Friday, we rented “Patriot’s Day” on iTunes.  The movie about the bombings at the Boston Marathon.  Excellent movie I thought!

See what Pentatonix are releasing on Friday, April 7th!  A 7 song EP of cover songs!!

Saturday I watched the baseball game.  I shut it off in the 9th inning, we had to leave to be at Corey & Jolene’s place.  The Jays were winning 6-4 with 1 out left for Pittsburg.  We got to Corey & Jolene’s place & the girls went shopping with Hannah.  We worked through 2 songs multiple times.  Corey’s giving vocals a shot & my rhythm is not quite there.  Here’s what we worked on….

 

The girls came back just before supper time & Hannah decided it was “Uncle” Chris’ birthday, I guess the one in January didn’t count.  So because of my birthday we all had to have our finger nails painted!  My right hand is the Oh so fashionable Saskatchewan Roughrider green & my left hand has alternating pink & purple………………..HAWT!  We had a delicious supper followed by some Easter chocolate for dessert.  We watched some “My Little Pony”, Hannah had a bath & then we left as she was going to bed.  Good times!  Nice to see friends & get out of the house as well as playing bass/guitar with Corey!  I haven’t touched my guitar until last weekend, since 2015?

 

Who needs more generic Molson beer?

It’s now Sunday morning, eggs & sausage are being made.  I just came in here to see who the final cut was for the Blue Jays was.  For me, they made the right choice, OF Melvin Upton Jr. is gone.  They got him last year & he’s nowhere near the same as he was before he joined the Jays.  I’m sure we’ll see 2 early 20 year olds come up from the minor leagues later on this season.  I’m guessing one of them will be the everyday 1B next season.

 

This Sammy Hagar replacing Maynard James Keenan in Tool I really hope is a bad April fools joke.

No blog post tomorrow & today is a very busy day, however I am sticking with my exercise.  As of my exercise this morning I’m at 800 crunches, 80 pushups, & 50 leg lifts.  By the end of the week it will be a total of 1000 crunches, 100 pushups, & the leg lifts can stay where they are, I felt some pain so I’ve decided to let them be for now.

I fell asleep to “The Philosopher Kings” the album “Famous, Rich, & Beautiful” I got up to tinkle & listened to “Muse” the album “Black Holes & Revelations” as I fell asleep

I didn’t even think to turn on the “stereo” when I exercised.  Busy day today, not much time for the computron today.

Don’t feel as though you have to open every link.

I was watching the news a few nights ago & came to a solution regarding cell phones being used as weapons in terrorist attacks!  Get rid of them!  How did most people fly without a phone until everybody & their dog got one?  Wait………….next to nobody had a phone, laptop or tablet.

Remember before all of these gadgets were around?  What happened when one person didn’t share or play nice with a toy?  No one got to play with it.  Easy, out of sight, out of mind.  No more laptops, tablets, cell phones or any electronic devices allowed on the plane.  You forgot it was in your pocket?  Not my problem, it goes in this garbage bag now or you go back to where you came from with it……………………………….HAVE A NICE DAY!

Of course I hate the entire idea of cell phones which I’m sure is a common pet peeve many people would like to change.  If you’re going to a public venue, restaurant, theater, concert, loud bar, airplane, etc.  Whatever it may be, please show some common courtesy…..they annoy me to no end, I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one.  If you’re at a certain venue doing or enjoying a certain activity, why isn’t the person you’re chatting with, come & join you?  Other than that or an emergency, what do you need your phone for?

Someone should invent a harness to go around your chest like a tube top & have a cell phone holder attached to the front that extends 2 ½ feet from your chest.  Then your phone would always be available!

From a random www.google.com search

“According to data compiled by New York-based app Locket, the average user checks their phone around nine times an hour at peak times. On average, users unlock their phone 110 times a day and a quarter of people actively use their handsets during the hours of 3am and 5am”

I found one with a lesser count but it was from 2015?

Me:  “Who are you talking to?”

Phone User:  “Ronda”

Me: “I don’t know Ronda?”

PU: “She needs help with a recipe”

Me: “Ask Ronda to wait?  Neither of us invited her & the recipe won’t go anywhere, unless she moves it.”

Call it rude but it’s no ruder to me than someone spending their time & attention on someone not with us or is not the subject of anything to do with our conversation.

In the end, there is no book on how to use a mobile devices, so use it as you like.  Please don’t forget that in a public setting your use of a phone can affect other peoples’ experience.

 

Tool is on tour…………again, which means no in studio work for Tool at the moment or any work for Maynard in the studio with A Perfect Circle.  All I know is that Tool has one song done for sure!

Friday night we did nothing.  We were both tired.  I got up around 9:00am to pee & figured it was time to get up on Saturday.  Kim was cleaning so I just tried to stay out of her way.  We’re having a sleep over with our friends’ 3 year old.  Kim will be sleeping with someone else again tonight (Saturday night).  She got here at 3:00 pm & immediately went grocery shopping with “Auntie” Kim.  They got home around 4:00 pm and started making burritos.  It’s 5:45 pm & I’ve already had a stern talking to from the 3 year old………………Hahahahaha!  Hannah got up with “Auntie” Kim around 7:00 am and they made brownies.  It was a weekend of painting, stickers, markers, & dancing to the “Trolls” soundtrack.  It’s close to 11:00 am on Sunday.  I see the couch & Netflix in my near future!

 

Thank you Apple music.  We didn’t have to buy we just streamed it.  I got tired just watching Hannah dance before bed & again this morning.  Good thing I still really like this song.  It’s a really good movie to watch as a family too!  We’ve ordered it from amazon already, should be here early this week.

 

I found a new band.  If you like “Paramore” you might like “Blameshift”?  Very similar to me other than “Blameshift” is slightly heavier.

Sarah Michelle Gellar reflex on the movie “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” on it’s 20th anniversary

Who enjoyed the Archie comic books way back in the day?  I sure did, I’d go grocery shopping with my mom & if there was an Archie comic at the till with a new release date & cover, I’d ask if I could have it.  There’s an original Netflix show on now called “Riverdale”, the name of the town where the Archie story takes place.  It has the Archie comic book characters but it looks like it will be a “Dateline” mini-series involving the characters, oddly addictive.  Some of the characters are completely different than they are portrayed in the comic book we watched the first 2 episodes of 6 last night.  Archie is the guy in high school, muscular QB of the football team, & slept with the music teacher in the woods the night/early morning of the shooting & they both heard the shot.  Jughead is not friends with Archie in the beginning.  It’s an interesting show.

 

Not just metal or rock all of the time

 

No I don’t purchase every album I hear, I do purchase a PILE of albums from iTunes though.   Kim has me on a monthly allowance on iTunes though, which is a good thing, or else we’d be on the streets with an iPod full of music.  When my iPod classic bites the bullet, I’m not sold on the replacement of an iPod touch.  128 gigs are enough for now, but I just want an MP3 player my classic 160 gig is more than enough room, I only have 105 of 130 gigs on my iPod.  I don’t want or need the other bells & whistles on my MP3 player.  All of the other stuff is add on so Apple can jack up the price of an iPod.  I just don’t like touch screens, camera or any other nonsense in my pocket.  I hate talking to people through a cell phone that cuts out every 12 seconds.  I’ll never understand the attraction to cell phones either?  If you’re not there, why would I talk to you when I’m out with others?  You had something else going on & couldn’t make or I didn’t invite you since I’m with a different circle of friends.  I’m not trying to be rude, but I don’t want to be connected to the world “24/7”.  I’d like to focus on the activity I’m doing at the moment.

Also I’m never out alone, and think about this.  Even if I was out on my own, a phone wouldn’t help prevent whatever happened, I’d likely use the phone afterwards.  Since I’m never out by myself, why do I need a phone when EVERYBODY else has one?  I have no plans to get a phone anytime soon.  If you’ve got one, great, I hope you enjoy it!  I’m holding out for the iPhone 74, and it won’t have anything on it, I’ll block my number & use it like a home phone, yeah I’ll use it to cut out on people as I TALK to them.  Texting?  I wouldn’t have a 17” monitor if I was going to a 6” cell phone screen.  Personal choice, I choose not to get one, & if I do, you’re going to strongly dislike the way I use it.  It will stay at home, I’ll use it like a home phone, email & Facebook will not be attached to it & if you get my number I will not respond to a text, a phone call only.  I don’t want/need a cell phone.

The Jays looked pretty good Friday!  I sounds like they’re more interested in bringing Dalton Pompey with them to the majors but not 1B Rowdy Tellez, I’m sure we’ll see him randomly throughout the season though.

I had a massage Friday morning.  Helped a bit for a little bit.  We then went for my blood test for my MRI, whenever they can get me in.  MRIs are very frightening to me.  Small & loud!  I had many of them in 2008.  My doctor asked if I was claustrophobic & said he’d prescribe a sedative when I go in, I’m terrified of MRIs.  We watched “The Accountant” Friday night cool show but I don’t need to see it again.

We listened to the new Ed Sheeran album over breakfast Saturday morning.  It was really good.  Over the last 3 years there has been one really good/diverse album.  A rap song, a reggae song, a pop song, a rock song, an acoustic song, etc.  Don’t get too comfortable in your seat, it’s going to leave you in 3-4 minutes.  There was “The Zach Brown Band”, “Ben Harper” & now “Ed Sheeran”.

Nothing too exciting here.  Kin’s going shopping with her sister & I’ll be watching the preseason baseball game……………………………I watch as much Blue Jays baseball as possible.  If I’m away I record the special “Blue Jays : 30”

I fell asleep to “Prince” the album “Purple Rain”.  I woke up to pee & put on “Tool” the album “Lateralus”

I exercised to “Ascot Royals” the 2017 release “New Skin” only 7 songs, then I put on “Big Wreck” the new album “Grace Street”

I’ve got some “Into Eternity” the album “Dead or Dreaming” in the house today

 

Sunday February 3rd, 2008 was the day I was shoveling snow in our backyard.  I sat down on our steps while I experienced the most painful headache of my life.  It didn’t last long & it was at the base of my skull in the back.  Kim saw me through the kitchen window & told me to come inside.  My headache probably lasted 3 minutes & then I was fine.  I slept fine & went to work on Monday, after a week off with a bad stomach flu.

I was fine on Monday the entire day.  I didn’t even think anything of my painful/short headache.

Tuesday, February 5th 2008, again all was fine.  Kim & I were carpooling to work.  We had bought a used Pontiac Grand Am, which looked new.  We bought it roughly a year prior.  It was more used as a replacement for my Ford Tempo, which had seen better days!  I dropped of Kim & went to work.  I think it was still in the morning.  I was about to put on the printing plates for a job.  Two of my co-workers came over & told me I looked very pale.  I felt fine & carried on as usual.  Then it all happened.

I sat down on the cat-walk of my press, then I laid down on it, none of this is normal.  I called for my co-worker and said “Call 911”.  I was almost out.  The paramedics came ASAP.  Kim had been called at the same time.  She went to leave & realized I had the car.  Her boss drove her over.  I was put on a stretcher & was taken into the ambulance.  The last thing I remember was Kim getting into the ambulance & me saying “It’ll be alright sweetie”.  Apparently I was alert & answering many questions.  I don’t remember a thing though.  I was in a coma for 4 or 5 weeks with a 5-15% chance of coming out of a coma.  I slept for a year only waking up for painkillers.  On December 31st 2008 I was declared cancer free.  I really did nothing, my body took over while I pretty much slept for a year & I’m sure there was a good chunk of good luck involved.

I was discharged from my therapies at the Wascana Rehabilitation Center on Thursday July 26th 2012!  I’m told the doctors expected the cancer too comeback at the 5 year mark, that never happened luckily!

Some people say I should celebrate the days in February.  I think those are days to forget.  I’d rather celebrate July 26th & every New Year.  I don’t know if that’s right, the days in February don’t seem as though they need to be remembered?

I fell asleep to “Metallica” the new album “Hardwired…………to self-destruct”, woke up to pee & listened to “Big Wreck” the album “Grace Street”

I exercised to “In Flames” the album “Colony”

 

I did 200 crunches yesterday & 200 today.  My abs really hurt, how on earth was I doing 1500 a day with no pain?

Kim’ stomach is fine.  She’s trying to figure out what it is that bothers her for a day or 2 a week.  She doesn’t get sick, she just has an annoying stomach every now & then.  She’s exercising a bit as well.  She went for a ½ hour run on Sunday, in the exercise room here on the treadmill.

I’m doing some of my exercises, & still stretching my sciatic nerve mostly.  I’m doing a fraction of my crunches & some of my leg lifts.  My daily goal for crunches each day won’t be 1500, it will be a little bit less when I reach it, and 1300 is what I’ll build up to.  I gotta say that doing my exercises feels more normal for me.  Back into my routine a bit, it feels much better!

Well it’s official!  I have an addiction…………………to music.  The “Big Wreck” album “Grace Street” was released on Friday.  As of Monday evening I’ve listened to it 13 times on my iPod & likely 5-8 times through our stereo.  Another reason I don’t play my music on the stereo when Kim’s home!

 

New “Queens of the Stone Age” this year……………….AWESOME!!!!

What happens when you put Metallica in one hand, Lady Ga Ga in the other & then put those hands together?  I don’t know but we’ll all find out at the Grammy Awards.

A Perfect Circle is going on tour from April 6 – May 7

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I may be listening to Big Wreck quite a bit, but I try to listen to as much music as possible!  Alter Bridge, In Flames, The Pretty Reckless, Metallica, Bruno Mars, Ascot Royals, Our Lady Peace, The Agonist, Into Eternity, Portal, Lamb of God, Judah & the Lion, Diemonds, etc.  Like every Tool fan I’m waiting patiently for a new album.

 

A follow up to the 2006 release “10,000 Days” by Tool would be more than welcome.
