I fell asleep to “The Watchmen” still hooked on the album “Live & in Stereo”

I exercised to “Paramore” the album “All We Know is Falling”

I cleaned to “Foo Fighters” the album “One by One”

 

I ramped up some of my numbers & added yoga to the routine this week.  Much better this way!  I wanted to get up early today.  I wanted to do some stuff around the house so I could watch the baseball game that starts in roughly 2.5 hours, so I went to bed at 9:30 pm.  I usually stay up until 10:30 or 11:00 and get up at 7:00 am.  Today I was out of the bedroom shortly after 5:00 am.  I’m done what I wanted to finish & now I’m tired & sweaty.  I did my exercise, had my breakfast.  Emptied the dishwasher & cleaned both washrooms & 7:50 am.

While I was cleaning the mirrors in the bathrooms, I noticed my beard has many grey/white whiskers in it!  I guess that’s to be expected, I’m 37 but I sure don’t feel like it!!!!!!!!  I stay up late & I like to get up & get things done so I have some free time, but today is already ridiculous!  I’m out now to see what else I can do around here before the ball game.

I will never force my religion on anyone.  I Anglican & if you’re not that’s fine with me.  Any religion or atheism is OK in my books, as long as you’re a good person.  It’s the radical extremists I’ll never understand.  What book are they reading, that their God tells them to kill others?

As George Carlin said, ‘Who created killing?’  His simple reply ‘Humans’ & he’s right.  I think every individual has the capability to kill, but the majority of us don’t since we know it’s not right!

As much as we hate, we also have the ability to be respectful & decent to each other.  Why don’t more people act on that trait?  Sure there are many things I don’t like, am I going to go so far to harm anyone who likes something I don’t?  No!  I’ll leave them be & find something else that I enjoy.

My intent is to be happy.  Killing or harming others is never something I’d do or take pleasure in doing.

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today. 

Our Lady Peace & I Mother Earth were my first ‘rock’ bands I got hooked in high school in the 1990s.  Our Lady Peace’s first album “Naveed” took some warming up to it & now that’s my go to OLP album.  I Mother Earth’s 2nd album “Scenery & Fish” quickly became one of my favourite albums ever, both albums were Canada’s reaction/reply to the “grunge” movement in the USA.  OLP released their first album “Naveed” in 1994 & IME released their 2nd album “Scenery & Fish” in 1996.

Getting to see my first 2 rock bands from high school, late last year & on the weekend were both a real treat for me.  Of course I own all of the CDs, with the exception of the newest Our Lady Peace album which was released in 2012.

I remember driving 2 friends to high school with the 1st Our Lady Peace album on.  I said “These guys will be huge!!!”  They thought I was off of my rocker, & told me that it wouldn’t happen.  The first 2 singles on their 2nd album were HUGE hits.  I was right but the singer sounded as though he was whinier, that got a little worse with every release.  I should have stopped buying their music after the 4th album of 7 or 8?

Even live on Saturday they knew to play only 2 songs from their 5th album & everything else was from their 1st 4 albums.  They started with a song from the 1st album & finished with a song from the 1st album.

I googled the top 20 best-selling albums in Canada & it wasn’t pretty.  I saw Aqua, Celine Dion, Shania Twain, & a few others.  Celine Dion & Shania Twain had multiple albums on the list.  I was unable to search for just hard rock & metal albums in Canada.  Apparently Canadians just ate this up though???????????????????????????????????  Oh, Canada  L  WHY??????

Describing the different subgenres of metal music sucks & ends up wasting my time in the end.  If non-metal fans want to know, I recommend watching the documentary “Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey”, the TV series “Metal: Evolution”, or they can continue their life calling it screamy music.  I just call it metal, I know what it means!

 

Alter Bridge will tour the crap out in Europe, have they ever played Canada?  Yeah, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.  That typical Canadian tour!  “Ah, there’s nobody else in Canada!”

This needs no explanation, just a good chuckle!

Our Lady Peace covers The Cars & The Beatles.  When I saw them in 1998, & they covered The Beatles, that’s when The Beatles’ White album became my favourite Beatles album!

 

Trivium shared it.  It’s metal…………………

 

Wonder Woman hits theaters on Friday.  I’m going to see it long after the hard core comic fans see it.

 

Lamb of God shared one of my favourite songs!  It’s metal…….

 

I guess the punk band “Rancid” are still around.  I like them but most of their album tracks are a little bit too much heavy punk for me.  This new song sounds quite a bit like their hit in the 1990s “Time Bomb”

The Toronto Blue Jays won 17-2 with 3 homeruns capped off with a grand-slam by Short Stop Troy Tulowitzki!  They won 6-4 Tuesday night on 4 home runs.  The question is, do they have any more of that left for today’s afternoon game?  How will the next 4 games go with the N.Y. Yankees in town?

I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “In Waves”

I exercised to “Paramore” the first album “All We Know is Falling”

 

4 days of exercise remember.  Planking, 120 pushups, 200 leg lifts & 40 back flexes over 4 days

Planking, 50 leg lifts, 30 pushups, & 10 back flexes every day.  I get up when Kim wakes me up & leaves for work.  I put on my exercise clothes, exercise, have breakfast (Hardboiled egg, 2 Rice Cakes, Fruit juice I’ve made for the week in our Vitamix, black coffee, & a water bottle with me all day).  Then I clean myself up for the day & put on respectful/appropriate clothing for the day, yes, shorts are appropriate for winter!

This seems like a very small amount of exercise to me.  I’ll ad some yoga to this next week &/or ad some pushups.  I’m just not satisfied with my exercise routine at the moment, I want more!  I expect more from myself.  There’s always somebody doing better at anything.

Is this how you survive surviving cancer?  I’m making it up as I go.  I’m able to help out around the house more, that’s a good thing!  I have to get Kim to show me how to use our stove from the future again.  Buttons on a black surface?  It might as well be in a different language?

When I was in the WRC they had me in music therapy.  I wrote lyrics for a song that I was supposed to play guitar on, possibly do the entire song with supervision of my music therapist.  To this day, I can’t flash between any type of guitar chords.  Might take me a while, yes it is frustrating.  My brain knows what to do, my left hand strongly disagrees.

I was in a severe depression at the time.  Just balling 10-20 times a day.  I started crying during one of my music therapy sessions.  My therapist asked if she should give Kim & I a minute.  I told her “no”.  I didn’t need to hide it.  She asked what I did to get over one of those moments.  I simply said “I hug my wife & it goes away”

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today.

I’m so sick of hearing about another terrorist attack & more senseless acts of violence.  Don’t ask me why, but when I heard about the bombing in Manchester, I got very angry inside.  It’s just so stupid!  Here’s U2 on Jimmy Kimmel with their take on the situation.

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/u2-on-manchester-attack-terrorists-hate-everything-we-love-w483946

 

I bought the Linkin Park album last Friday.  It’s not your regular Linkin Park album.  I don’t hear it as an album full of singles though.  It’s 10 songs that need to be heard 1 through 10.  Very mellow album.  The 2nd track is pretty much a straight up rap song, the majority of the album is Chester Bennington singing over delicate tracks.  If you’re looking for the typical Linkin Park album with him screaming the lyrics at you, you won’t find it here.

MINIMAL LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Long article/review of Alter Bridge live

http://thepopbreak.com/2017/05/24/alter-bridge-live-2017/

 

If you think for one second that any band or musician is creating music for the fans, sorry but you’re dead wrong.  If you’re not happy at your job would you do it?  I highly doubt it.  A band or musician will create the music they want to.  If you like it great!  If you don’t, get over it & move on.

Paramore’s performance on James Corden!

 

I had to share this with you since I forgot how much I like it.  My exercise music Thursday morning.  “Kyuss” the album “Blues for the Red Sun”.  This is the band bass player Nick Oliveri, & guitarist/singer Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age started!  Foo Fighters’ song “Outside” is based on Kyuss having to play outside in the middle of the desert since they refused to turn their instruments down.

These songs, ‘Outside’ & ‘No One Knows’ might not exist without Kyuss?

 

I don’t think most concert goers even care about extra security, security workers are seen but don’t usually factor in to the overall experience unless you’re doing something wrong.  The only interaction I’ve experienced with any security is a pat down & “Please take your cell phone back to your vehicle if it can take photos or videos”.  Yes, I had a flip phone in 2007.

At the moment “In Flames” & “Linkin Park” are under fire from fans about not being as heavy a previous albums.  Would you like Metallica if they just made the “Black” album & “Master of Puppets” forever?  Linkin Park already made “Hybrid Theory” & In Flames already made “The Jester Race”.  Look at those albums & say “Been there, done that”!  There’s no need to lash out to them on social media!  They’re making music they want to make, if you don’t like it, move on.  No the albums aren’t as heavy as past efforts.  They’re still good albums to other fans though.

 

Yay, System of a Down!!!!!!!!  15 songs written AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

If there’s still the possibility of System of a Down, Queens of the Stone Age, & A Perfect Circle releasing new music, this could be a FANTASTIC year in rock & metal music!

 

In Flames shared it…….

 

I don’t think or know of any metal fans that have had this problem but people just assume you’re rude, atheist, music snob, drug users, etc.  The metal fans I know are cool, nice & unassuming.  I like metal but it certainly isn’t the only type of music I listen to.

I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “Silence in the Snow”

I exercised to “Lamb of God” the album “VII: Sturm Und Drang”

 

Crunches, leg lifts, & pushups.  I’ll do that for a few weeks, then maybe up those numbers.  No squats that could wreck my back.  Mostly it’s trying to exercise without ruining my back.

I used to hate it when people would say “I exercised today & I feel so good now”.  Now I’m one of those people, even working out at a minimal amount.

I’ve got some rough numbers where I’d like to end up for my exercises, but they’re way down the road.  As for squats, they can wait until I meet with the surgeon or after the surgery.

Get up early before its 25 Celcius in here.  I did that on Tuesday & today.  That’s the trick!  I’m just going to pretend I don’t have a nasty cough still.  When I exercise it makes me feel as though I’m doing something productive.  I need that.  Even when I ran a printing press!  At the end of a shift I could hold a piece of paper & think to myself “Hey, I helped make this”.

Nobody told me this until a few weeks ago?  My cancer was likely to come back in 2013.  Something I would have liked to know.  Nobody told me squat!  WHY????????  I wouldn’t have done anything differently to avoid it.  You’d think anyone with that kind of info might clue you in.  “His cancer will probably come back but don’t tell him”.  I don’t know, it just seems disrespectful, but 2013 is a long time ago & the cancer didn’t “come back”

If I don’t know what music I should workout to, I just look down at the shirt I’m wearing.  I had to do that today.

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today. 

 

Always looking for new bands.  I found a metal group called “Kobra & the Lotus”.  A female fronted group.  I’ve got all of the metal bands I’ll follow, but this song seems to be OK.  Their past 2 albums I’m pretty sure aren’t for me.  I can’t see myself listening to this much but I thought some of you would be interested.

They’re like “Gojira” or “Children of Bodom” for me.  Love most of the music, but can’t get behind the vocals?

 

I’ve become a super hero nut.  I was watching “Gotham” Monday night.  During a commercial brake they showed a trailer of the “Wonder Woman” movie.  I don’t know that I’ll see it on June 2nd, but I’ll definitely see it & likely buy it.

 

OK May 12th, hurry up!  I listen to this song about twice a day on either iTunes or www.youtube.com

 

I’ve never actually heard their music.  How many musicians have used their platform against anything?  EVERYBODY!  Now this video can’t be made because it’s anti-government?  Give me a break

http://loudwire.com/rise-against-video-shoot-shut-down-anti-government/

 

Just think of “The Sex Pistols”  “I am an anti-Christ” anti-Christian, I see no problem with that.  That’s fine or “Rage Against The Machine” pick almost any song in their catalogue.  It is likely anti-government & that’s fine with me also.  It’s kind of pointless that an artist has zero free speech.  I guess if your anti-anything you’d be better off to just “shut up & sing”, that’s just completely messed up to me.  It’s OK for Taylor Swift to bash an ex, but if she was singing about the government in the same way, that would be wrong?  I draw the line at Church burning by mostly black metal bands in Europe.  Not every black metal band does this though.

 

I’ve never been a fan of this song, Soundgarden is great but this song I just can’t get my head around.  Soundgarden shared it though……

 

Last week tonight with John Oliver.  He’s just funny!  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I’m OK with marijuana.  Do what you like, just please don’t hurt yourself or anyone else.

I fell asleep to “U2” the album “Zooropa”

I got down to stretch for a bit to “Alter Bridge” the album “The Last Hero”

 

I tried doing a very light workout & just started coughing uncontrollably.  Started with crunches, tried to do 50 & was coughing by the time I reached 20 & figured I should stop, this was on Monday.  I guess no exercise until this cold is gone.  At least with the snow out there from last night I can justify having hot water with lemon & honey.

Tuesday & I’m still quite sick aka another wasted day in my eyes.  This cold has latched on & sunk it’s nails into me.  Kim got me some cold medication after talking with the pharmacist about what I could take without affecting my regular meds I take.  It’s weird to watch a baseball game sipping on hot water with lemon & honey mixed in.  Shouldn’t it be a hot dog & a beer?

I, of course, watched the baseball game last night & the Jays are actually winning here & there.  Their record isn’t pretty, but it’s coming around.  I’d never consider them a playoff contender despite more than 140 games left in the season. They are currently 6W-14L, not good!

Not much new here.  Wednesday morning & this cold will not let up.  Fell asleep coughing & woke up coughing.  My fever is gone though so I shouldn’t be sweating all day!

 

 

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

 

I just saw a photo saying Big Wreck are in the studio.  WOW fast turnaround!!!!!!!!!

My doctor called looks like I’ll more than likely have a back operation YAY!  He’s going to call the same surgeon that did my brain surgeries.  I’m not worried about the strong possibility of back surgery, I’m worried about the recovery time.  After the doctor called, Kim teared up, she doesn’t want me to have to deal with something major again.  So I told her “Don’t worry about stuff like this, we don’t know what’s going to happen in the next 10 seconds or what will happen in surgery or after, we’ll deal with whatever when it happens”.  I’m anxious for this back thing to be fixed once & for all, & get back to exercising.  This stretching stuff is getting old.

Kim’s parents came down from the Prince Albert area.  We had Easter with them & Sherry Friday night.  Saturday was my Dad’s birthday.  Kim had a bad chest cold that moved to her sinuses & just continued to get worse as the weekend progressed.  She stayed home Saturday to rest.  She was going to go shopping with her mom & sister & then come to my parents for supper.  She just really wasn’t up to doing anything.  My brother & his girlfriend drove me home, dad picked me up in the afternoon.

Kim ha Thursday & has Monday off.  I’ll see how she feels after supper & we may watch a movie if she’s up to it.

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!!!!!!

I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “Silence in the Snow”, then about ¾ of “Lamb of God” the album “Sturm Und Drang”

Early morning straight out the door for a message & a blood test before my MRI.  Preseason baseball to watch this afternoon.  In other words, I’ll be laying on the couch in a position that is comfortable for my leg with an ice pack on it.

I admit that at most times I was OK being the center of attention in comfortable situations or in a small group of friend.  I’m older now & I look like the loser of a brawl.  I’m OK not being the center of attention now, then I don’t feel as though I have to be “on”.  I still have issues meeting new people looking the way I do, in a wheelchair & with an iPatch.  However, when anyone wants to take a photo of my cousins & I, I’m asked to take off my iPatch & sometimes stand up with someone’s help.  Well I’ve never enjoyed anyone taking my photo to begin with & me without my iPatch, glasses, or wheelchair is just as fake as a poorly done photoshop picture.  How about no photos please.  I don’t look at them or have a camera.  Take photos of whatever you like, just not me please?

Basically what I’m saying is I used to really enjoy going out, now I go out of the house once or twice a week & I’m good, or else I get cabin fever.  I don’t leave the house every morning & drive to work, I get bored very fast.

 

Yep, I bought Ed Sheeran on preorder & got it last night!  I haven’t listened to it yet.  I got the deluxe edition.  It’s a 16 song album & I’d rather give it a more focused listen the first time around.

 

I forgot to mention yesterday that “Queens of the Stone Age” have completed the recording process of their new album also.  I think a new album from “Royal Blood” is almost a guarantee as well, from what I saw on Facebook a few weeks ago?

 

Pentatonix shared it….

 

I think one day of not giving any member of Trumps’ office any news or publicity would be hilarious!  They can ban any news source they want, & the entire media can choose whatever they want to report on.  The problem with this is ratings & news articles seriously drop if this is what happens?

I can’t really handle a lot of “Slipknot”.  They’re not too heavy for me.  I’ve got one of their albums which I’ve only listened to probably 4 times at most.

I find it odd when a band says “We’re going back to our original sound” like U2 said after releasing the free album to anyone with iTunes.  I don’t think a band should ever make that statement.  They’re setting the bar for their next album.  Hardcore fans will more than likely be disappointed & anyone else that hears the album could sway either way & be disappointed with the next album or the preceding catalogue.  I find that to be a faux pas.  It took “Metallica” a long time for most fans.

 

The Blue Jays have needs that could solve many of their issues staring at them right in the face.  They aren’t planning on using them though because they’re too young.  Their off season plan was to get younger & more left handed.  Rowdy Tellez & Dalton Pompey do both & they’re Blue Jays that came through the Jays minor system.  I wonder why this team hasn’t made it to the World Series since 1993?  Both players are young, left handed.  Tellez fills a void at first base, & Pompey can hit lead off while filling a void in left field, as well as having speed on the bases.  You still have a great bat on the bench with the injured utility player Steve Pearce they got in the off season who only has 100 MLB games under his belt & he’s right handed.  Let the kids play, & I’d drop Upton & Smoak in a trade for another utility player/bat off of the bench in a second.  Smoak has yet to live up to his potential & Upton is on the downside of his career.
