I still can’t imagine how my cousins & uncle feel. Most children will watch their parents die, but my cousins haven’t reached the age of 30 yet. Cancer is not genetic. I have a hard time agreeing with that statement? So it’s a coincidence that my grandmother died in 1999 of cancer, I was diagnosed with cancer, my grandfather died of cancer while I was in my therapy/rehabilitation program, & now my aunt has died of cancer? That’s a freaky coincidence????

This coming week I intend to get back into my routine of exercise & enjoy the memories I have of my aunt. She’s gone, it sucks………..she did live life to the fullest though, I have multiple fond memories of her. I say this with no disrespect intended. I can’t let the past slow me down, I have to keep moving forward while remembering my past.

That was my intention, my back completely disagrees. I can’t stand up straight, or even move my legs without my back being incredibly sore. So no exercise until I get this kink out of my back, just a pile of stretching

Kim’s parents & aunt came Friday. Kim’s sister & brother-in-law have the spare bedrooms……………..us………not so much. We went over to their backyard for BBQ burgers, salad, & a couple of wobbly pops. Saturday, dad & I went to the football game. Got to watch the Riders lose their 3rd of 3 games this season! Perfect, now nobody will see the Riders coming! Sunday, we went to Sherry & James’ house for brunch. They should all be home now or very shortly. Kim’s aunt is in Melfort which is on the way to Birch Hills.

I’m going with the reason that I’ve never heard of them, until I heard news they were reuniting about the same time as Guns n’ Roses.


New single from “The Pretty Reckless”. I like this group! I can’t wait for their 3rd album!


How rockers reacted to the killings in France


I’d make a fortune on this Jeopardy! category


Way too easy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In Flames, September 23rd, DVD, an album or both?

You’d think a band as big as Anthrax, who’s been around for so long, would be a headliner for almost every show they play? Especially a lineup like this? I have 15 studio albums of theirs, yet they’re near the bottom of the totem pole?


Best songs of 2016 so far. David Bowie is the only one I know of?

The Needle Drop review of the new Blink 182 album

I would have reacted much worse, that being said, she did have an 18 month old child with her & it was getting dark. I would have replied to his remark “Hey, I find whatever you are offensive! GET OUTTA HERE BEFORE I THROW UP ALL OVER MY SAGGING BOOBS!”


I was listening to the new Candlebox album & it just seems better everytime. No it’s not metal at all. This album was released on April 22nd

3 kids playing Metallica’s “Enter Sandman”


Look at that Megadeth gets a new/full time drummer & now they’ll need a temporary guitarist. One step forward & one step back. “Step by Step” they’re going no where fast.


Streaming music is not acceptable to all people. I’m not the only one in Regina even that’s against it! You do what you want I’ll pay for & own my music.

What a way to start a blog? The legendary artist Prince has passed at the age of 57. Yes, I’m a fan of his!




This week is backwards for me than normal weeks. I still get up early, but I don’t do my exercises? It still feels wrong to me. I get up & have my fruit & vegetable juice, a coffee, & fill my water bottle. Then I sit on the couch & watch what’s left of the previous nights baseball game. Blue Jays in :30 does nothing for me. I much prefer to watch the entire game.

I still have the TV show ‘Criminal Minds:Beyond Borders’ left to watch from last night, I’m not sure if I want to watch that show? We had 3 or 4 different Law & Order shows, 3 CSI shows, a failed Criminal Minds spinoff & now they’re trying another one. I’ve been a fan of the original Criminal Minds since the first episode. I don’t think I need to watch a spinoff?

Did everyone hear the big news in Saskatchewan today? Garth Brooks is coming to Saskatoon! I’ve seen an advertisement on Facebook at least 5 times today.

“Here we go you guys! You’ve heard the rumours for years, you’ve waited for DECADES and now… GARTH BROOKS IS COMING BACK TO SASKATOON!

Trisha Yearwood will be performing as well! Saturday, June 11th at Sasktel Centre! Tickets on sale Friday, April 29th at 10:00am. Also, we’ve got a TON of tickets to give away. So keep it locked on The Bull for your chance to win.

Actually… now that we think about it. Want our FIRST PAIR OF TICKETS? Like and Share this photo! We’ll pick a winner Friday morning!”

Not my thing at all, but I hear he puts on a very good show!
Song lyrics you’re proud to know


My sister-in-common-laws “I’m Deerunk” song. “We should sing!!!!!!!” “No Rachel we should drink some water”

AC/DC news. Zakk Wylde formerly of Ozzy Osbourne shares his thoughts.

Guitar lesson from Megadeth?

The super group, Gone is Gone, made from members of Mastodon, Queens of the Stone Age, & At the Drive In. Have released a new song. I’m still not sure if I’m sold on them? Mastodon & I don’t mix very well & I’ve never heard of ‘At The Drive In’. Oddly enough the metal fans I talk to adore Mastodon?? I must be missing something?


Kongos shared it again………

Update from Alter Bridge in the studio

“Alter Bridge update – All 14 songs are done with main guitar. Now comes acoustic guitar and solos. Mark has 11 solos to track.”

Alter Bridge want to release this 5th studio album in June before they begin their tour in early July! Now that’s ambitious! They’re hosting a listening party for fans in the Orlando, Florida area on June 6th I think they said! That’s really fast, promising all of these dates before the album is even finished? WOW!

Tool is sharing a few songs at the moment….

This has become a very ugly world we live in!! If you’re anywhere near Saskatoon please help find these kids!


New band started by 2 former members of Megadeth. Act of Defiance announce tour


This is as much as I know about Kesha. I hope this guy gets what’s coming to him? I don’t think she’d fabricate a story to take it this far? The song is just a reference point, I really know nothing about her.


Halestorm shared it…..

I love this album!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hmmmmm, this reminds me of something else years before?????????? The writers must have had writers block?

Perhaps the Bruno Mars Pandora radio skit?

Just a TON of Prince news today. “I can’t believe the news this year…” there must be a phenomenal super group of passed musicians from just this year. Not good at all. “Thursday bloody Thursday”

I fell asleep to “The Northern Pikes” the album “Snow in June” from 1990 originally from Saskatoon. Before that it was “Stone Sour” the album “House of Gold & Bones Part 2”

I exercised to ”Foo Fighters” the self titled debut album that Dave Grohl did by himself. Band was not assembled yet aka nobody said “FOO FIGHTERS UNITE”!

Perfect, it’s my dad’s/George’s birthday today.

Exercise total for the week; 15 minutes of Yoga, 120 squats, 160 leg lifts, 5100 crunches. My abs are in the best shape ever, I still have a layer of fat over them though. We/I need to do more cardio. It hurts until I get through the first 75-100 crunches, then it’s fine.

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

I’ll tell you now, Monday’s post will be later than usual. Apparently baseball fans in Boston have Monday off? Day game that is on TV here at 10:30 am. Weekend Update on Sunday might be later in the day also.

I have 4 box sets. 2 of them are 3 CDs, 1 is a 3 CD set, 1 DVD & a book, 1 has 4 CDs, 4 Vinyl albums & numerous DVDs full of individual interviews. Led Zeppelin, Simon & Garfunkel, Nirvana, & Alter Bridge in order. While I was in the WRC & able to go out, Kim grabbed a 3 CD anthology by Lamb of God. When I discovered Opeth I bought a 4 CD set for $40, sweet deal!

I fell asleep to “Dream Theater” the album “The Astonishing”

I exercised first to “Counting Crows” the album “Recovering the Satellites”

Apple shares are going down & Microsoft shares are going up. However an Apple share is double of a Microsoft share.

“No matter what you dream, you can do it” – a bio-pic about Steve Jobs played by Ashton Kutcher, a marketer for Apple said the quote above. I’ve been told this by my parents my entire life & it’s really good advice.

I think Apple as company stopped this way of thinking when Steve Jobs passed? The companies stock is on a downward slope at the moment, probably because they continue to aggravate their customers, likely a large percentage of the world. Face it, you own at least one thing made by Apple. An iPod, iPhone, iPad, an iMac. Mac laptop or desk top, or iTunes is on most computers. I’m not a fan of Apple, but I have an iPod & use iTunes at least twice a week, renting a movie or checking out an album. “No matter what you dream, you can do it”, unless it’s a 160gb iPod classic. Which will be replaced with a more expensive iPod touch with less memory, but additional features most people have or don’t want. I guess Steve Wozniak isn’t the thinker like his good friend Steve Jobs was? I’m not calling Mr. Wozniak stupid at all! I’m saying he doesn’t think the way that Steve Jobs did. Steve Wozniak is great at creating technological advancements, just not at marketing or listening to what consumers want/need.

It’s sort of like dangling a donut in front of anyone “You want it? Here it is!!!! No, now you can’t have it”. If I was tech savvy I’d do it myself, but unfortunately I’m not.

Tremonti teaser for the release of “Dust” on April 29th.

Nope, not “The Game of Thrones” writer, George R. R. Martin. The other George Martin, The Beatles’ producer.


I would think at this point they would be open to recording a new album, fans would love, but I understand if they didn’t want to.

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Bryan Adams” “Greatest Hits”


60 leg lifts today. 30 on my hands & knees (each leg I count 1, 1, 2, 2 insets of 15) & 30 on my back while keeping my abs flexed. Now my exercise is done for the week, & I need it. I get quite tired when the end of the week comes. If I can do it, set aside 20-30 minutes to do some type of exercise daily? I’m in a wheelchair but my legs work, I just have no balance, but it’s coming as time passes!


I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “Vengeance Falls”

I posted a blog about “reality” TV in the past & I’d like to explain it in a more detailed way. “Reality” TV is not actually real. I think it should all of it should be on a game show network, because that’s most “reality” TV shows are, game shows! “If you can achieve this task, within these rules & conditions, you’ll win this prize”. Quite a few people like it, and that’s fine. If Kim is watching it, I leave the room usually. Not what I want to see. With a talk show, or news those are REAL EVENTS! If it’s a scripted show it’s like a painter with a blank canvas. A writer or team of writers can go anywhere with whatever topic! I find fictional shows much more interesting along with news & talk shows. No rules or limits, just entertainment. That’s all I want, entertain me. I don’t care for “reality” shows, but that’s just me.

Motley Crue does nothing for me.

I love Friday’s Rock It Out Blog LANGUAGE!!!!!

The Agonist shares it & here it is…..

I think I solved the gun issue in the USA? Take all of the gun owners, have them bring all of their guns. Take them on a trip into the Grand Canyon. Whoever comes out first wins! If some are still alive, bomb the canyon. The USA bombs other countries to keep America safe, I figure it’s fair game……….stupid but it might work? Don’t tell them that the winner will be shot on sight by the FBI or CIA. I think I just solved a HUGE problem & I only have one wobbly pop in my system! Not bad for a stupid Canadian! Just make it like “The Hunger Games Trilogy”. Kill or be killed. Works as a movie, might work in reality? Maybe add a Donald Trump wall around the canyon? There have been no mass shootings in the headlines, this is just how ridiculous the situation has become to me!

Not every American is a gun loving person waiting to snap & go on a killing spree. Canada isn’t perfect either. I can almost guarantee the chances of me being shot, rise substantially if I cross the border to the south. That’s not a chance I necessarily want to take?

We went to my parents place for supper last night. A turkey dinner with mashed potatoes, EW!

Turkey and potatoes can cause me to gag, ham, turnips, & buns I’m good. 3 turkeys left in my mother’s freezer EW! She did make a ham last night, dad’s not a turkey fan either. I just passed on the potatoes, literally. Kim past the potatoes right past me to my mom. Potatoes for me are every bit as gross as olives. If it’s mashed, boiled or baked potatoes, there’s not enough gravy in the world for me to put on them!

The new I Mother Earth single. I’m going to wait until Friday to get it on iTunes.

“The Cult” on new album & new song



I would think most singers enjoy Freddie Mercury!!!


To quote Adam Lambert when I saw him with Queen introducing this song “This is for all of you fat ass bitches out there” I’d never even pretend I could get away with that.

Today’s workout was brought to you by the letter “S”, as in Sevendust on shuffle.

I got a phone call yesterday from the Canadian Cancer Agency, from the doctor who’s had my case/file the entire time as far as I know. She called me in the afternoon, I was nervous at first, I thought maybe she saw something suspicious on my CT scan from last year. She was just calling to see if I’d approve of her writing a paper, without names, about my cancer success? Of course she can share my story with anyone. If my story, how they treated/cured my cancer, can help ANYONE that would be great!

It’s nearing the end of the year, which means another CT scan & another meeting with her afterwards. I was lucky, I got a 2nd chance at life & I screwed it up immediately (sort of) by being the biggest moron to ever walk the earth, without physically harming anyone. I wasn’t even supposed to come out of a coma in 2008, but I’m here! Sure I have an eye patch & I’m in a wheelchair, but I’m alive! All of the MRIs & radiation were very scary for me. I’m EXTREMELY claustrophobic MRI scans I was terrified of being pushed into that tiny cylinder. Radiation was scary too. A very tight mask over my face, so tight it was crushing my nose each time “Don’t move at all please” they’d tell me. I thought to myself each time “I can’t move because of this mask on me.” Chemo therapy didn’t bother me, I was asleep 23 hours a day for pretty much a year, maybe more?

Poor Kim, there wasn’t a lot of conversation between us in 2008, while she was with me all day every day. It was as if we were both in the hospital together? She’s AWESOME!! I’m very lucky that she chose me to spend the rest of her life with!

THANK YOU ALL FOR BEING SO AWESOME. Don’t think you’re the only one I attacked, there are many & I’m sorry.

The Toronto Blue Jays clinched the American League East, in a 15-2 win in the first game of a doubleheader! Now the race to win the entire American League from the Kansas City Royals. To put this in perspective, I’m 35 years old & I’ve waited for them to make it to the playoffs since they won the World Series when I was 13!

‘Sevendust’ streams new album before it’s release. This album also comes out on Friday, October 2nd 2015. I have not preordered it, but will likely get it later on.


5 questions with Zakk Wylde


I’ll try not to get my hopes up for Muse’s next album.


This is MUCH closer to what I was expecting from them….

I guess Nicki Minaj will star in a TV show based on her life. I JUST REPORT THE NEWS, DON’T HURT ME!!!!


They’re just good! If the next “Royal Blood” album is half as good as the current album, I’ll be overjoyed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Barenaked Ladies live! Not the same without Steven Page singing with Ed Robertson.

I just can’t get into “Mastodon”? Their last album I don’t find it to be as unlikeable as their previous albums. I don’t listen to it much though.


Muse” fans in Hong Kong rock out to uncensored Muse. I’m assuming LANGUAGE!!!

http://www.scmp.com/video/hong-kong/1862290/hong-kong-fans-rock-uncensored-muse-show-songs-taken-setlist-beijing-and Audio/video link inside of the link. “Muse” is on my bucket list to see live.

19 years ago Tool released “Aenima”


Fall Out Boy & Paramore on tour together! I really like “Paramore” & Fall Out Boy’s “Save Rock & Roll” album, which is more of a pop album to me

Anyone a fan of “The Dead Weather”? I’ve never heard of them before? Rock It Out Blog review below.


Phil Anselmo is always trying to form an “Extreme metal” band, he was close with “Down” but there will never be another ‘Pantera’


Jimmy Fallon’s black Simon & Garfunkel sing “Can’t Feel My Face”


I will never understand why music is a competition? I’m guessing every other person will choose differently than I or the person before them? I’ll take Alter Bridge over Guns n’ Roses any day. Slash is great at what he does, I’m just not a fan of his.


John Oliver interview with Stephen Colbert about Donald Trump. LANGUAGE!!!! It’s censored for TV though.


I’m waiting for a few release dates, Tool, Megadeth, Into Eternity, & Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington of ‘Linkin Park’ taking over the roll of singer Scott Weiland. In January they shared a video from inside the studio saying they were 95% done the recording process? I’m guessing they’re waiting for the Holiday season? Maybe a late November release or a mid-December release? With the “Lamb of God” album done & released, with a future tour with “Lamb of God” & “Megadeth” announced I would think there would be a release date soon for “Megadeth’s” new album. I’m guessing the countdown clock on their website is for a release date? Megadeth tour announced beginning October 5th in Beijing, but no album release date yet.

Top selling vinyl albums so far this year!


Royal Blood’s” touring bus was a writing den for the 2 of them.


The Agonist shared it, so here it is….

The “Megadeth” album has title “Fatal Illusion”. No release date, but here’s a teaser from their website


Songs I like. “Royal Blood” It was like a cherry on top of a HUGE sundae to see them open for Foo Fighters in August!

Death from Above 1979 gets compared to these guys just because both are 2 member bands. Each has a bass player & drummer. I like Death From Above 1979, if I had to choose between the 2 it would be Royal Blood in a heart beat.

It’s going to be tough to follow this album. I thought this album & “Vengeance Falls” by Trivium were 2 of the best recently released metal albums.

Coldplay team up with the cast of “Game of Thrones” for Red Nose Day sketch

I like some Coldplay, mostly their first 2 albums & the odd song here & there.

I learned these 2 songs by Green Day & they had the exact same chord pattern just different timing.

Songs I like. “Green Day”, before they made ‘American Idiot’ WARNING, LANGUAGE IN A COUPLE SONGS!!!

Duff McKagan plans a show with Seattle Symphony

KISS war of words between members.

Bush has a cash grab for their next album.

I never got into Jane’s Addiction, never even tried.

Dave Grohl acceptes the ALS ice bucket challenge from Zac Brown.

What did I learn from AC/DC? You can make the same song multiple times to be successful and have 1 big hit song, “Thunderstruck” to live on for decades.

18th place out of 164 participents in the CFL page I’ve joined on face book.

Zakk Wylde, recently retired guitar player, for Ozzy Osbourne! Yes, I saw Ozzy in Saskatoon with James & Sherry. Honestly I don’t listen to Zakk, Ozzy or Black Label Society much. I’ve sort of grown out of them? I do have 2 albums of Zakk Wylde and 2 of Black Label Society’s albums. Hangover Music Vol.6 is the only album of BLS I listen to, all acoustic. The two by Zakk Wylde I put on every now and then. Mostly “Book of Shadows” all acoustic as well.

That concludes most of my iTunes library. “Big Wreck” and “Foo Fighters” are always my prefered musical acts. I can’t wait for November 10th, the release date for “Sonic Highways” by Foo Fighters! This small portion sounds “Epic” to me.

I attend Saskatchewan Roughrider home games. Started going with my James Grandparents at a young age. Season ticket seats. I now go with my parents. I’ve never enjoyed the music at the games. I don’t need to either. I’m not a fan of background music anyways. That being said I hear it, and think “OK, why?” They play a variety of music to try and please everyone. I don’t expect them to play metal music ever, or hard rock. I think if they just played country music it may appeal to 90% of the crowd. Seems as though country music is the in thing at the moment? My mother can tolerate it and enjoys some of it, I’m the same way, it’s not my prefered type of music or my father’s. They have to play something though, you can’t just have dead air. So I think they should either play country tunes or stuff the players enjoy. 7/8 players interviewed by TSN said this is the last song they listen to before they hit the field..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YkADj0TPrJA I like Phil Collins, maybe go with this if that’s what the players want. I really don’t care what they play. It’s background music. I’m more focussed on the game, not the music. If I’m listening to music I’ll focus on it. So what are your thoughts on music at a sporting event, restaurant, wedding or any other public event with background music?
