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

Music throughout the weekend.  “1970s Rock Compilation”, “In Flames”, “Lamb of God”, & “Dead Sara”

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

 

Well Friday I didn’t feel like watching the baseball game at all.  Instead Kim & I watched a movie on Netflix.  We don’t watch horror movies much at all.  The movie “Get Out” was really good though!

I stayed up late to watch 3 episodes of “That 70s Show” on Netflix.

Saturday Kim got up & made a large delicious breakfast for us.  Bacon, oatmeal, & fruit.  Then I buckled in to watch the Blue Jays lose again.  This is a rebuilding year for the team.  The President & General Manager are doing a rebuild without stating what they’re doing.

It’s a team full of young players.  I have no expectations this year or next year really.

Woke up early today 5:20 am.  Went to visit a different cousin from Winnipeg at my parents’ place.  Movie night, they hadn’t seen “Aquaman” so we watched that on dad’s big HD projection screen in the basement.

Binge watched the last 3 episodes of the first season of “Big Little Lies” on Crave.  2nd season is starting today

Now it’s time to see if the Jays can score a run today, or find another way to lose a game?

…And I liked one song from the debut “Velvet Revolver” debut.

NOEL GALLAGHER’S HIGH FLYING BIRDS

They’re a rock band, just not a heavy rock band.  If you remember “Oasis” from the 1990s, you probably remember the name Noel Gallagher.  He was the guitar player in “Oasis”, his brother Liam was the singer.  Constantly bickering in public at each other during the “Oasis” days when they were one of the biggest bands in the world.

Now they don’t have each other’s phone number from what I’ve read.

They both have their own separate bands.  I checked out Liam Gallagher’s band & it just wasn’t for me.  Noel Gallagher’s very opinionated & really doesn’t care what anyone else thinks.  He’s right & everyone else is wrong.  I really like his music though.  He’s also the singer in his band.  I have 2 of his albums, there’s also an EP & another album on iTunes that was released before the 2nd & 3rd album.

WEEKLY EXERCISE TOTAL/BARONESS

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.

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.

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

5 day exercise total; 200 pushups, 600 leg lifts, 450 crunches, 150 tricep lifts, 450  squats, 300 back flexes.  Yoga & stretching for just over an hour on Thursday.

Let me “Break it down” for you!

3 days of 200 leg lifts, 150 crunches, 150 squats, & 100 back flexes. 1 day of 200 pushups, & 150 tricep lifts.  Then Thursdays are yoga & stretching for a little more than an hour.

I fell asleep to “Puscifer” the album “V is for vagina”

I exercised to “Devin Townsend” the album “Empath”

 

Apparently I won’t be seeing the doctor that tells me to “lose some weight” is not there anymore.  Our brother-in-law works on the servers for the cancer clinic at the Pasqua hospital.  It’s a long story that I haven’t heard as to why that doctor is not there.  I’ll be seeing a new doctor who’s been given my case.

Kim tells me that the reason I’ve had to continue with appointments is that it was because my previous doctor wanted me there.  More info for the story of how the chemo, radiation, & medication helped keep me alive.  I guess this is a double edged sword in some way.

It would be great if they got all of the info regarding what worked to keep me alive & help other patients & doctors with the entire story.  On the other hand I won’t have to deal with someone body shaming me once a year.

The body shaming didn’t bother me at all, I just found it odd & rude.  That was the only doctor that said that to me.  I graduated high school at 185 lbs.  When I went into the hospital I was 265 lbs.  I probably weighed 270 or 280 when I was released & kept eating garbage.  Right now I’m 230 lbs.  If I lose 20 lbs that would be great, any more than that, I’ll look like a bag of bones.

I’m 6’1” with a big frame.  That is the same thing for most of my relatives on my mother’s side of the family.  The majority of my T-Shirts fit me & I feel healthier since doing daily exercise & eating healthier.  I don’t really care how much I weigh as long as I feel good.  Losing 20 more pounds is more of a bonus than a necessity.

 

Trivium’s guess for the release of a new Tool album was WAY off!

I miss “Pantera” too.  I was late to the game.  They were all alive when I got into them through Corey McDonald in SIAST.  They were in different bands at the time though.

I don’t know if rock music needs/wants to be saved?  It’s there, just harder to find.

At every home “Saskatchewan Roughriders” game, I hear the song below.  It’s from 1987.  LIVE IN THE NOW PLEASE!

Sorry, Guns n’ Roses aren’t for me.

When you live in Regina, Saskatchewan & have only been to 3 music festivals over 20 years ago.  Not being able to see a festival sucks but it’s the norm in the middle of nowhere.  You’ll be OK Miami.

Today “Big Wreck” released only another single.  I was hoping it would be a preorder as well, it wasn’t.  I’m pretty sure they’re busy with the 2nd guitarist’s cancer though.  We’ve got 2 singles from the new album this new one first then the first single below it.  Much heavier than I’ve heard from them!

 

OBADIAH PARKER

Right at the beginning I’ll admit that I know nothing about him.  Acoustic guitar player & singer.  I can tell you after a brief google check that he’s American.  His name is Matt Weddle, Obadiah Parker is his stage name.  I own 3 EPs, 5 songs each.  They’re all cover well known songs.  He has 2 original albums on iTunes, I haven’t heard them yet.  He does have a band but it is very rare to hear them on the EPs……

 

2008   THE TIP JAR VOL.  1

 

2014   THE TIP JAR VOL. 2

 

2016   THE TIP JAR VOL. 3

This EP is very tough to find any videos from.  He does cover this song though…

How long are the Toronto Blue Jays going to continue this “Socrates Brito” experiment going?  He’s one of the worst hitters on bad team.  If a player’s batting average is 0.077, they’re very lucky to be on any roster.  An average of 0.250 is just OK.  Are they keeping him there because he can catch a fly ball?

For me he’s just a guy taking up space when there are 2 minor league players knocking on the door to play right field.  Heck they have 2 capable right fielders now.  Brito plays maybe once a week.  They’re going to trade 2 of their top pitchers, but keep Brito?  I don’t think you’d get anything in return if they traded Brito.  I say just cut him & move on.

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

Music throughout the weekend.  “Pink”, “The Damned Things”, “Foo Fighters”, & “Big Wreck”

 

Moments after I posted Friday’s blog, I got a call from an office regarding my mental health.  I now have an appointment scheduled for June.  That’s the earliest they can get me in.  So things are moving but at a snail’s pace.

Friday evening I watched the Toronto Blue Jays game.  The 20 years & 1 month old much talked about Vladimir Guerrero Junior’s 1st big league game.  He even got a standing ovation for grabbing a slow foul ball & tossing it to a fan in the crowd.  Toronto must be a boring place?  That or that fans have been hearing about his offense since he was signed at the age of 16.  He went 1 – 4 at bat.  After a day of interviews, a press conference & then a baseball game.  I’d just want to go home & go right to bed, at whatever age.  Toronto fans in Toronto at the games should probably dial back the energy & let the guy play?  I have never heard of that much enthusiasm for any player EVER.  Calm down, he’ll play again tomorrow.

More baseball on Saturday during the day & today.  Kim’s setting up the place for a photo shoot today.  We went for appetizers & a couple of drinks at “Tommy’s Speakeasy” on Saturday evening.  My brother & 2 other guys from their band were playing acoustic cover songs.  I spoke with one of the volunteers that I’d see in the Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) program I was in.  Brief but good to see him.

Today is the 3rd & final game with Oakland in Toronto.  They get Monday off, then 3 games in Anaheim then 3 games in Texas.  Kim has a photo shoot in the afternoon, & I’ll be boiling eggs & making my veggie juice for the week.

Jimmy Fallon is the bee’s knees!  Get it………Sting…bee’s………oh gorsh I’m old!

Jimmy Fallon & Paul Rudd recreate their 1980s video!

No, I likely won’t see these 3 movies in the theater.  Brewster has intense anxiety separation issues, unless there is somebody around to take care of him.  My brother & I might go to Avengers: Endgame this week, we’ll see?

 

DEVIN TOWNSEND & DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT

He’s an unknown metal musician from B.C. Canada.  He’s unknown outside the metal listeners.  He recorded “Lamb of God” their album “As the Palaces Burn” album.  At the time the some of the members of “Lamb of God” had no clue who he was?  He was asked to mix the album & replied “Are you kidding me?  NO!”

He’s been around for quite a while as the singer & guitarist for “Strapping Young Lad”, “Devin Townsend Project”, & just released a solo album on March 29th.  His brand of metal is weird.  It’s like ambient noise or a Disney song with his vocals, a guitar, & usually a choir?  Here’s a song from the “Lamb of God” album he recorded, followed by his solo album & my favourite “Devin Townsend Project” album….

He has many “Devin Townsend Project” albums & 6 “Strapping Young Lad” studio albums & a greatest hits album.  “Strapping Young Lad” is a bit too much for me.

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

4 day exercise total; 400 pushups, 400 leg lifts, 300 crunches, 0 tricep lifts, 0  squats, 0 back flexes.

I can’t seem to shake this cold.  I start coughing when I do certain exercise or as much as I’d like to.  That’s the reason for the low numbers this week…..again.  My energy is still quite low as well.  My energy is still fighting my cold.

I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the album “There is Nothing Left to Lose” followed by “Lamb of God” the album “Ashes of the Wake”

I exercised to “Bush” the album “Sixteen Stone”

 

I’ll let you know that on weekends my food consumption isn’t always super healthy.  I figure, keep everything in stricked moderation.  Now with that being said, there are things that I used to eat that I can’t handle anymore.  Example; My first bite of anything chocolate makes me cough uncontrollably.  I eat chocolate, but not like I used to.  Anything battered &/or deep fried I’m very concerned about how I’ll feel in 30 minutes.  This is more about me getting older than it’s about having had cancer.  After a road trip or just eating junk food, my body just cries vegetables & water.  I just don’t do that too much.

My doctor does have me on heart burn pills though.  My heart burn got quite intense when I had cancer.  I have thrown up stomach bile after forgetting or running out of my heart burn pills.

At this point I thought I’d be walking?  Frustrating, but I guess I’m not done exercising.  I should change it up a bit with some stretching & yoga 2 days a week, instead of working on my arms.  2 days of yoga a week, then 2 days of arms a week.

I got a call from an intake program.  They asked me a few questions & told me they would pass on my info to a psychologist, therapist, or psychiatrist.  I have enough pills as it is & obviously they’re not enough.  If I have to see a psychiatrist, I hope this person will talk more than just prescribe more pills?

 

I got my 2 preorder albums today.  “Pink” – Hurts 2B Human & “The Damned Things” – High Crimes

POSSIBLE LANGUAGE IN BOTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone deals with something mentally at some point in their lives, I think?  Even just mourning a death of a friend or family member.  Nobody is perfect, as hard as they try.

39 years ago Thursday “Black Sabbath” released the album “Heaven & Hell”.  Their first album with Ronnie James Dio.

 

BARNEY BENTALL

I don’t know much about him.  My dad was a fan & a guy in Grade 10 drafting with me, loved this album, the only album I have & it’s from around that time.  It’s from 1995.  Yes, I’m staring down the barrel of being 40, not that big of a deal.  So here we go…..

Did you hear that the number 1 prospect will be playing 3B for the Toronto Blue Jays tonight?  I’ve been hearing about this every day since the beginning of the regular season (March 28th).  He’s 19 or 20 years old & his dad, Vladimir Guerrero, is in the Hall of Fame as a Montreal Expo.  I’ve heard WAY TOO MUCH about this kid.  No pressure kid, only the entire baseball world will be watching you.  His hype could likely hurt him?  If he doesn’t hit a home run tonight, many people will be disappointed.  Granted there are no big names on the roster at the moment other than starting pitchers that are already dropping like flies.

He’s a kid!  Burry him in the batting line-up for a few days, he doesn’t need more pressure than he has right now.  Have him batting anywhere from 6th – 9th in the line-up & let him catch his breath.

My Blue Jay roster is close to filled through 2021.  Starting Pitchers; Stroman, Borucki, Sanchez, Panone, & _____.

Catcher Jansen, 1B Tellez, 2B Biggio, 3B Guerrero, SS Bichette, Outfield McKinney, Hernandez, & Grichuk.

Bench & utility players; Urena, Gurriel Junior, Alford, Maile.

Bullpen; Giles, Tepera, Biagini, Mayza, Gaviglio, _____, _____.  As for a Designated Hitter, I have no idea?

I’ve heard more about this kid than I have about Avengers End Game.

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

Music throughout the weekend.  “Pearl Jam”, “Queens of the Stone Age”, “A Perfect Circle”, “Chromeo”

Friday was tame.  Finished my exercises for the week, did very little stuff that needed to be done.  Watched the first episode of the “Newsroom”, then watched the Blue Jays give away a game to the Tampa Bay Rays.

Saturday I stayed in bed too long.  Kim went out to grab a few things.  I got up & used our instant pot to hard boil some eggs for the week.  Then I watched the Blue Jays try to lose another game but they got the win, it was sloppy but it still counts as a win.

Folded & put away some laundry, quiet weekend.  We watched some crave TV for a bit, then Kim rented “On the Basis of Sex” the story of how Ruth Bater Ginsberg got to where she is today, despite sexist laws.  I could tell I was catching a flu or cold.  I was getting warmer & aching in my bones.

We got the “Crave TV” app last week.  Kim is almost done the series “A Handmaid’s Tale” & I’ve just started “The Newsroom”

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   First scene of the first episode.  This was before Trump’s time.

I got the aching in my bones & joints again, no fever yet, “phlegm” though today.

No blog post until Thursday & then late on the following Monday.

 

ROB ZOMBIE (former singer of White Zombie)

I know right now a PILE of metal fans are freaking out, because of this next sentence.  I much prefer “Rob Zombie” as a solo artist to the band “White Zombie”.  He’s likely thrown in to the “Nu Metal” genres because he doesn’t fit into any other specific metal sub-genres.

If you ever see him in an interview, WATCH IT!  He may look odd with his dreads & clothing choice, but HOLY COW is he a smart guy, & a really good interview!  He’s a shock rocker, he’s toured with “Alice Cooper” & currently with Marilyn Manson, and no I’m not a fan of Marilyn Manson.

When he toured with “Alice Cooper” they’d watch the other guys set, & try to out-shock each other the next night.

“Rob Zombie” is also a writer & director known for graphic horror movies.  One of his first movies was called “The Devil’s Rejects”

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!          

I did get to see him open for “Ozzy Osbourne” in Saskatoon in 2006?  For me, “Rob Zombie” was just a little bit better.

I have 2 studio albums of his & a greatest hits album.  I’ll give you a sampling from his greatest hits.  Please just assume there’s offensive & sexual LANGUAGE!!!!!

 

WHITE ZOMBIE’S BIG HIT
