I fell asleep to “The Travelling Wilburys”

I exercised to “Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers” their Greatest Hits.

 

We finished off Thanksgiving Monday by going to a “My Little Pony” movie with our friends & our “niece”.

EVERYBODY will likely encounter some type of roadblock in their life, there’s no need to hide it.  It is hard to talk about & deal with eventually, just do your best to get over it & put it out there!  I was the same way, I didn’t want people I didn’t know to see me in a wheelchair with an iPatch.  I can’t be in the house & not have new friends for the rest of my life.  I had to get over that.  Since about the middle of 2014 I just let that go, one less thing for me to stress about.  If people want to look, that’s fine by me & questions are more than welcome, even encouraged.

No matter what it is, you can’t worry about it for however long you have a mental, physical, or internal issue.  Let it go so you don’t have to carry that weight with you forever, it will get heavier with each second & once you’ve figured out how to deal with it, you no longer have to worry what other people think.  Most people probably don’t notice it in the first place!

I’m pretty sure I have a bit of OCD in me.  We have 2 bathrooms, both must have 3 extra rolls of toilet paper.  I always stack them on the back of the toilet, in a pyramid.  2 on the bottom, 1 on top, & whatever is currently in use.  I also don’t like a pile of dirty dishes in the sink.  I put what I can in the dishwasher, & %50 of the time I’ll do the hand wash dishes.  I also like to finish a task before I go to bed.  If I don’t I’ll be awake for too long thinking about it.

 

 

THAT’S ALL FOR WHAT’S ON MY MIND & CANCER TALK!  HERE COMES THE POPCULTURE STUFF! 

 

ED SHEERAN

 

Ed Sheeran is quite popular so I shouldn’t need to give you much, if any, background on him.  Kim & I saw him in Regina, on tour just before his 2nd of 3 albums was released.  Cool to see him live, but the sound here at the arena sucks.  Whenever he turned on his digital pedal with pre-recorded stuff to make it sound like a full band, everything became slightly distorted.  Not how you want to experience Ed Sheeran, a guy playing acoustic guitar!  This is the show that broke me.  Ended up watching 50% of the show through someone’s cell phone & what was released a few months later?  A concert video of his show at Wembley Stadium!  So glad I paid to watch the concert on a 4 inch screen.

I’m a big fan on his stuff.  Big Wreck & Foo Fighters have been my 2 favourite bands for a long time though!  Nothing has changed that.  Big Wreck & Foo Fighters both released an album this year.  Ed Sheeran hasn’t received my attention as much as he deserves it.  He “fell through the cracks”.

 

You shouldn’t need much background, but here are two songs from each of his first 2 albums.

LANGUAGE IN THIS CLIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here’s a few songs his latest album!!!

 

Walk off the Earth cover Tom Petty

 

Oh my!  Can’t wait for November!

Then December brings us the new Star Wars!!!

Kim told me last night that she had today off, so I didn’t work out today.

I fell asleep to “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “Villains” followed by “Foo Fighters” the album “Concrete & Gold”

This song^^ is just completely sugar coated in reverb on the album.

400 crunches, 400 leg lifts, 160 back flexes, 20 minutes of planking, & 400 pushups.  Each morning starts with filling Brewster’s dishes.  100 crunches, 100 leg lifts, 40 back flexes, 5 minutes of planking (rest periods not included), & 100 pushups.  Then I lay on the floor, roll over in complete exhaustion, trying to catch my breath & carry on with my day.

Some people think I sit around all day laying on the couch watching TV, Movies, or listening to music.  If I’m lucky, that happens about twice a month, after my exercises or on the odd occasion that I don’t sleep well.

Unless I’m sick, there is always exercise going on & something to get to, that I normally wouldn’t have time to get to.  Remember, it’s not just me that has to be happy, it’s Kim’s place too.  Yes, Brewster is happy too.  Rough life for a dog.

On Wednesday, I spent far too much time working on the problem with my iPod.  All of my art work disappeared.  I still have an iPod Classic 160 gigabytes I got while in my rehabilitation in early 2012.

I do what I can.  Some cleaning, started cooking (on the stove top), I always handle the dishes, etc.  For some reason we went with a fancy stove that has buttons instead of dials.  I get very confused with which burner I’m turning on, or if I’m turning on the oven?

 

THAT’S ALL FOR THE CANCER TALK FOR NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I fell asleep to “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “Rated R” followed by “Radiohead” the album “The Bends”

 

I exercised to “Corrosion of Conformity” the album “America’s Volume Dealer” then 2 “Diemonds” albums on shuffle

 

I completely forgot!  Thursday, July 26th 2012 was my final day in the Wascana Rehabilitation Center.  I was discharged in the early afternoon after my last physio session & a short meeting with my doctor, therapists, & pharmacist.  We’ll leave the details for Friday!

 

SHARK WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yah, it’s Shark Week on the Discovery channel.  I love Shark Week.  It hit me the other day.  Why are people so afraid of sharks?  Is it because they will bite & kill if needed?  Probably.  Well the seas & oceans are where they live, their home.  Humans live on dry land, that’s our home.  We go into their home uninvited to poke & prod them to learn about them.  If a stranger came into your house & started doing scientific tests on you, would you just sit by & let them do that or would you retaliate so much to avoid them ever coming back?  I would yell, swear, fight & act like I was right out of my mind with a baseball bat in hand!

I’m not about to welcome a complete stranger into my home at any given time to do as they please?  I wonder why sharks can kill people?  Oh right, that’s their self-defense kicking in!  The scientists doing all of these tests will say “This doesn’t hurt the animal”.  Great, how do you know that?  Are you a shark that has experienced this type of testing?  Oh, you tried it on yourself & it didn’t bother you, really?  The shark feels pain at the exact same threshold as you?  Tell me a better story, I don’t buy that one.

Then they investigate sharks in the deep ocean, where it’s very dark 4000 feet.  I wonder why those species live in the deep ocean?  I’m guessing part of the reason is they don’t want to be bothered.

It’s great that scientists & divers have a thirst for knowledge, but does anyone NEED to know what’s going on 4000 feet down on the ocean floor?

Our weekend finished with me watching most of the Jays game until it looked as though it was out of hand by 8 runs for the wrong team.  Now that they’re basically out of it, “Blue Jays in :30” is all I need to see.

Yes, it’s a regular 5 day week for us this week.  That means as of Monday, I’m back to my exercise routine.  I’d love to increase a few things, but I have to take my back into consideration.

 

THAT’S ALL FOR WHAT’S ON MY MIND & CANCER TALK!  HERE COMES THE POPCULTURE STUFF!

At the moment ‘Royal Blood’, ‘The Watchmen’, ‘The Smalls’, ‘Paramore’, ‘Stone Sour’, ‘Slipknot’ & ‘Big Wreck’ are ruling my world!

 

FANTASTIC Pearl Jam song, maybe it was because I could play it without putting my guitar in some wacky tuning?

 

I like ‘Walk off the Earth’ & they shared it…….

My mother is in the hospital, or has been all week.  She had a knee replacement.  Once it’s healed, the surgeon will do the other knee in about 3 or 4 months.

Brewster will not be left alone here.  He has really bad anxiety even if we’re here during a rain/thunder storm, he’s high maintenance.  Other than that, we would visit mom in the hospital.  She was discharged Thursday evening.

 

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

 

Seems that lately everything offends everyone???????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  WHY??????????  Some stuff is better to be left alone.  How does a photo of a guy sitting on a chair backwards bother people???  I don’t think Social Media was meant for people to whine & complain about the tiniest little thing they find?  Have you ever sat in a chair backwards?  If so, that offends me since you’re complaining about Justin Trudeau sitting backwards in a chair!  Let’s get over every insignificant thing & maybe focus on the important stuff????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Sure, this is about music, it can mean nothing to one person & everything to the next person, I get that.

Even if you think this is just a music blog, this “music blog” actually means A LOT to me!

 

Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoy the Star Wars franchise.  I don’t own any collectable toys still in the original packaging or anything like that, but maybe I should?

http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/news/star-wars-r2-d2-unit-sells-for-276-million-w490359

 

The Toronto Blue Jays might get into the playoffs but I don’t see them making it to the World Series.  This is a team that relies too much on home runs.  52% of their runs scored are through home runs.  Many of the home runs are solo home runs.  It might look impressive when a hitter hits a ball 500 feet, but with no one on base it only counts for 1 run.

 

Walk off the Earth are releasing a movie??????

 

Would you ever speak publically or privately as Trump has & continues to do so?  If you have a child would you approve of his language?  Some people voted for him, so I guess they approve, why?  I’ll never understand.

I’m usually not a political person, especially here in Canada!  I’m fairly ignorant when it comes to politics.  However I do know the difference between right & wrong.  I watch a TON of CNN lately.  It’s a bad car crash I can’t look away from.

 

Gotta say it’s been a good/needed break for both of us!

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

I exercised to “Royal Blood” the brand new album “When did we get so dark?”

 

Yay it’s Friday & I’ve been waiting for it!  Sure I’m at home all day, but I exercise, take care of Brewster, have breakfast, watch minimal TV, shower, have lunch, write portions of this blog, practice guitar, & then I’ll hit the couch & listen to some music.  Then it’s 3:00 pm or so unless the dishwasher or hand washed dishes need to be tended to, or I need more fruit & veggie juice or I need to clean up something.  I’m usually out of bed by 8:30 am at the latest, I tend to go to bed around 11:00 pm.  Once I’m up it’s go, go, go, until everything I wanted to accomplish is done.

500 leg lifts, 200 pushups, 5 minutes of planking, yoga, 500 crunches & 100 back flexes this past week.

That’s 100 leg lifts, 40 pushups, 20 back flexes, 25 minutes of planking, 100 crunches & yoga 5 days a week.  First thing I do when I leave the bedroom, then breakfast & a shower.

Yes, those are my current goals.  I think they’ll stay at that limit for quite a while.  You know me though, I’ll likely push to raise some of the numbers sooner.

I used to be a decent swimmer.  I never took swimming lessons as a child.  My dad grew up playing water polo & swimming in the morning before class at the University.  He taught me how to swim.  My grandparents’ old condo had a swimming pool.  He taught me there & in the summer at the lake/cabin. My grandparents’ owned, built by my great grandfather.  I used to swim with no problems at all.  Now I wouldn’t get into a pool or lake without a life jacket on.

Royal Blood’s Facebook page

“Pleased to announce we’ll be supporting Queens of the Stone Age in North America in September/October. Tickets on sale 22nd June.”

Only Canadian date is in Toronto in October.  I guess technically that makes it a North American tour.  Toronto, just over a 2 day drive away from Saskatchewan.  Musically, I should move to Toronto or Europe.  Many North American tours are 20+ shows in America w/ 3 Canadian dates, Montreal, Toronto, B.C., & sometimes Calgary depending on the popularity of the artist(s).  Although Tool, Elton John, Ozzy Osbourne, Garth Brooks, Dixie Chicks, Blue Rodeo, Foo Fighters, In Flames, Trivium, Lamb of God, Megadeth etc.  Have at least played Saskatoon and a few of those have made their way to Regina.

 

TONS of great music for me being released this year.  I adore the new Big Wreck album. But the Paramore album “After Laughter” is on heavy rotation on our stereo & my iPod.  It’s much more of a pop album than previous albums that were the typical pop/punk/distorted guitars.

 

Just checked the ol’ iPod for counts of play on it!

30 times listening to Big Wreck’s ‘Grace Street’ & Paramore’s ‘After Laughter’

12 times for The Watchmen’s ‘Live & in Stereo’

The odd thing is I listen to our stereo more than my iPod!  I think I have a problem?

 

I’d sing & play these 2 songs at the band practices with my brother’s group!  He really doesn’t like these songs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mitch Fraser!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wait for it………he’ll trademark air & water next at this rate!

 

Green Day albums ranked.  If it were me “American Idiot” would be a distant last place!

http://loudwire.com/green-day-albums-ranked/

 

I’ve listened to the new Royal Blood album a few times this morning & WOW, no sophomore slump in sight.  I’d say it’s even better than their first album & it’s phenomenal also.

 

I went to a friend’s house last night to see his new place.  Pretty sweet place.  His condo looks great, could be that I haven’t scratched up, or demolished his walls with my wheelchair….yet!

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 “Diemonds” 2/3 albums I own on shuffle “The Bad Pack” & “Never Wanna Die” got up go to the washroom, came back & to “Megadeth” the album “Dystopia”

I exercised to “Blameshift” 2 Eps & a full length album on shuffle, washed dishes to “Ed Sheeran” all 3 albums on shuffle.

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

I’m dumb!  Largest understatement I’ve made in the last 10 minutes, I’ve been watching CNN.  It took stage 4 brain cancer for me to wake up & start taking care of myself.  The photo of 2 guitar players on stage is of my brother & I.  I’m the guy in a white T-Shirt.  That’s me at my heaviest 265lbs, no I don’t look that heavy, doesn’t mean it’s OK though.  I haven’t weighed myself lately.  I did about 6 months ago & I was 233.  I went into the hospital at 265 & ballooned to probably close to 300?  I’m lighter at 233 than I’ve ever been in my adult life.  The only problem is ALL off my weight went to my stomach.  I have T-Shirts that don’t fit over my stomach.  I may have to have a serious discussion with my stomach.  At least I’ve smartened up & eat healthier now, & 3 drinks are more than enough Friday or Saturday.  Before I was sick it was outrageous!  8 or 9 drinks minimum on Friday & repeat on Saturday.  I really don’t miss those days, I’m a morning person now.  I like to get up & get stuff done!  Then I’ll sit on my butt & relax, & if the Blue Jays are on TV, don’t even pretend that I hear you!  Hahahahahhahaha!
