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!

10 death metal vocalists you can understand. I can’t? Out of this selection I only listen to “Opeth” they do death metal & really light intricate music as well. Checking on iTunes, I found out I missed 2 or 3 of their albums? I think I’m OK though I have everything from before & this album.

2 REASONS I KNOW SCANDAL IS FICTIONAL

Today’s workout was brought to you by the letter “S”, as in Stevie Wonder’s Greatest Hits & “Songs in the Key of Life” on shuffle….

What are the 2 things that tell me “Scandal” is fictional? The first is that it makes politics seem interesting. The second & biggest reason is they use cell phones…………..AS TELEPHONES! Nobody is constantly looking down at their phone? They TALK TO PEOPLE!

2 episodes of the Rock It Out Blog from Monday

I have never been a fan of the ’80s hair metal movement.

Mike Portnoy (former drummer of Dream Theater) left the band to be in his new band ‘The Winery Dogs’

http://loudwire.com/the-winery-dogs-oblivion-exclusive-video-premiere/

All he got for “Threatening to kill” someone, & drug possession was “home detention”. Maybe I should threaten to kill someone so I can stay home & do nothing. Who’s with me, & who needs a vacation? Should we binge watch something on Netflix?

http://loudwire.com/acdc-drummer-phil-rudd-loses-court-appeal/

Sound like Josh Homme from ‘Queens of the Stone Age’

This is from the album they’re trying to sound like. I’m guessing they became a more well known band because Dave Grohl played drums on the entire album & played drums live with them when he could? That’s how I found out about them.

“The Agonist” release this year is my favourite of the 4 they have released! LANGUAGE!

Will Smith plans to tour next year with DJ Jazzy Jeff?

Rock It Out Blog listening party LANGUAGE!!!!!

I don’t have a camera for a reason. I don’t like being told to “Come on squeeze in, be in the photo, it will be fun”. Well if it will be fun I’ll completely change my mind……..NOT! I don’t like being in photos, if I had a camera & was taking photos of others, that would really come off as flat out wrong! I loathe being in photos, especially now with an eye patch. I’ve heard people say “Take off the eye patch & stand up”. Why? Much easier said than done & even if that wasn’t the case, I’d still have no desire to be photographed, just leave me out of the photo & I’ll play nice.

Songs I like, “Seether” they’re OK, I don’t really listen to them much. Does the first song remind you of another band? I think I saw them years ago at The Distrikt on their first tour? I could be wrong? I didn’t pay for these albums or download them. I got them from a guy, who knows a guy, who knows a guy, who has a cousin, who knows a guy that had them.
