running into family at the grocery store

i ran into a cousin at the grocery store today. i'm not a guy that really likes to shoot the shit in public. i'm more of the i have a list and i want to get this shot done type. my uncle is back in the hospital. mom got the phone call last night. who the fuck knows what he has now to go along with the cancer. i told mom though, the family will not be able to stand him dying around Christmas. the joys of the holidays.

thankfully, my Sunday night was much, MUCH better than my Sunday afternoon. i was so fucking angry by the end of the New Orleans Saints game that i thought i was going to have a stroke.

Manchester United was cruising along up 1-0 yesterday at Everton. late in the game, The Special One decided to bring on Marouane Fellaini. like most United fans, i was like WHY? sure enough, less than 3 minutes on the pitch, he fouled a guy in the box and gave Everton a penalty kick. so, for the fifth game in a row in the league, a fucking draw. 1-1. i wanted to blame it all on the shitty officiating, but even i know it was more self inflicted than anything. hopefully this shit will end one day. maybe they can find a team dumb enough to want to sign him in January. or maybe The Special One will just let him rot on the fucking bench for the rest of the season. not the way i wanted to start my Sunday.

the New Orleans Saints couldn't get a stop on defense to save their lives yesterday. and the offense was fucking horrific for most of the game. not a good combination for winning in a game that you really needed. the Lions beat the Saints 28-13. Drew Brees was held without a touchdown at home for the first time in 7 seasons. so you can imagine how my day went in fantasy football as well.

WWE TLC was amazing last night. i loved all the title changes. i loved the main event. it had a little of everything. all in all, it was better than i expected and i was expecting a great one.

Westworld was one of the best mind fucks i think i have ever received. nearly all the questions were answered and honestly, just give anyone connected to the show whatever damn award they are up for. it was fucking great. if you didn't watch the show, do yourself a favor and find it and enjoy the fuck out of it.

Divorce was pretty funny last night.

Shameless was great last night. i'm so emotionally invested since i have watched every episode, i nearly shit myself when Ian got in the car with Mickey at the end of the episode.

i really enjoyed The Affair last night. i never knew Brendan Fraser could play a creep so well.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight and the semifinals of The Voice. i'll be watching Monday Night Raw for most of the evening.

it looks like winter may really be here by the weekend. snow and lows in the teens. good times.

i went through my mailing list last night and picked out the lucky ones to get something from me this Christmas. so, start looking in your mailboxes in the next few days.

i will probably be on here in the morning tomorrow. since there is a basketball game Tuesday night, it's a bit of a clusterfuck.

i hope everyone had a lovely Sunday.

be well. be creative. be cool. be quick to send me CASH, panties, hate mail, love letters, broken promises and dirty pennies from heaven.

peace and chicken grease...

and we don't even have the tree up yet...

nearly every house in this pseudo retirement cul-de-sac i live in has Christmas lights up. i doubt we do that this year. fuck, we don't even have a tree up yet. with mom being hurt, i don't think either one of us are feeling too much like celebrating at the moment.

i had 2 rum and cokes last night and i woke up this morning with a cramp in my left leg. i think it had something to do with Castro, but i'm not sure. the rum is from Cuba.

Keanu was fucking stupid as hell last night but funny as fuck. i laughed my ass off.

Pete Holmes: Faces and Sounds was pretty damn funny as well.

i recorded The Hateful Eight but i'm going to probably watch it sometime over the holidays.

Saturday Night Live was great last night. i love just how natural Emma Stone feels on that show.

ROH was really good last night as well.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be the season finale of Westworld, Divorce, Shameless and The Affair. i will be watching WWE Network for most of the evening. the TLC ppv is tonight. it should be interesting.

Manchester United takes on Everton later this morning. i'm hoping they can find a way to get all 3 points. they desperately need them.

the New Orleans Saints take on Detroit today. the Saints are at home, so i'm expecting a shootout. hopefully i will be enjoying another round or two of victory beers tonight.

i hope everyone had a good Saturday. hopefully your Sunday will be even better.

surprise, surprise

so i was sitting at the Dayton Flyers game watching the players warm up. then, i looked a little closer and was like, holy shit, Kendall Pollard is actually in uniform today. this was welcomed news. Dayton has been shorthanded all damn season inside. there was a huge roar when KP made his debut in the first half. and i absolutely love that they whipped Winthrop 83-67, mostly because their head coach used to be an assistant at Xavier. Dayton plays again on Tuesday against a Division II school. hopefully that's a blowout.

the New York Rangers won this afternoon over Carolina 4-2. looks like i'll be enjoying some victory beers tonight.

sadly, my high school lost in the division 3 state finals this afternoon 30-0. still, it was farther than i expected Trotwood to go this season.

i was up early as shit this morning. Chelsea whipped Manchester City 3-1. and El Clasico ended up 1-1 between Barcelona and Real Madrid.

NJPW was excellent last night. i could watch Will Ospreay wrestle everyday for the rest of my life and never get bored.

the Fitz and The Tantrums concert/interview was good last night.

Vice News Tonight had another excellent week of reporting.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Keanu, Pete Holmes: Faces and Sounds, The Hateful Eight, Saturday Night Live and ROH.

i'm planning on being on here early tomorrow, before Manchester United takes on Everton. if not then, it would be after the New Orleans Saints play Detroit.

here's the latest reason why Janne Karlsson is a genius:

i'm always amazed at what he takes out of this blog and turns into art.

i hope everyone has a great Saturday night. only fuck the ones that cough.

i just love hate mail, but...

ANY feedback i get from people, i love. be it great, bad, hateful, whatever... the worst thing any artist (did i just go there with myself?) can get in response to their work is indifference. now, i wish i got more praise than i currently get, but... the hate mail never gets old. and honestly, i don't give a shit if you hate my writing, hate me as a person, hate my music or hate my political views... all of that is fair game. but, don't make the mistake the cunt from yesterday made and include my family in it. if you EVER really want to see someone gleefully walk that line of insanity, cross the line that never should be crossed. and trust me, as my mother pointed out years ago, i'm fine with a cot and 3 meals a day. when i tell everyone i write so i don't kill people, they tend to think i'm joking. there are moments in my life, and yesterday was one of them, where no one would ever want to see how close to the truth my "joke" really is. there's your warning.

the New York Rangers lost last night to Buffalo 4-3. it was the first game all season they lost when entering the 3rd period with a lead. hopefully they will use the game as a wake up call. they play Carolina again tomorrow.

The Big Bang Theory was excellent last night.

Life in Pieces was fucking hysterical last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, 2 episodes of NJPW and a concert/interview with Fitz and The Tantrums.

today was the second day in a row with no sun at all. i had to get out of the house this afternoon or i felt like i was going to explode. thankfully, i had a check that i needed to deposit and mom had mail to go out. that got me out of the house for at least 30 minutes. thankfully, i get to go out for longer than that tomorrow.

i'll be at the Dayton Flyers game tomorrow afternoon against Winthrop.

i will probably do a blog after i get home from the game. Saturday morning will be back to back soccer matches; Manchester City vs. Chelsea and then Real Madrid vs. Barcelona. right after those get over, it's off to the basketball game.

i hope everyone has a great weekend. call if you need bail money.

ah, the dull skies of December

before i get too far down the rabbit hole, i want to thank A.J. Huffman (Kind of a Hurricane Press) for all the times she published me at Pyrokinection, Napalm and Novocain and Jellyfish Whispers. i really do appreciate it. best of luck in whatever comes next.

i didn't sleep well at all last night. i woke up at 3 in the morning and couldn't fall back asleep. it took a combination of soccer and porn to finally do the trick. of course, that only lasted for 2 hours. i figure one of these days exhaustion will catch up with me and either kill me or make me Rip Van Winkle. i'd prefer death if those are my only options.

Lucha Underground was excellent last night.

NXT was pretty good last night.

Total Divas had me laughing my ass off last night. at least i know The Miz is paying the price for marrying over his head.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, The Big Bang Theory and Life in Pieces.

i'll probably watch some of the football game tonight between Dallas and Minnesota.

the New York Rangers play tonight in Buffalo. hopefully they can get another win tonight.

i did listen to the latest Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast today. great interviews with Finn Balor and Daniel Bryan. you can find the podcast on iTunes and Stitcher and many other places.

i've got dishes to do kids, so that's all for me today.

time for some drinking

i was curious to see how Manchester United was going to play today. scoring 90 seconds into the match against West Ham certainly got my hopes up. going to break at 1-1 was a little frustrating. but, a very dominant second half sent the boys into the semifinals of the EFL Cup with a 4-1 win. that's much more like it. they will play Hull City in the semifinals. the next match in the Premier League is on Sunday against Everton. 2 goals each today from these two:
i thought the manager said it best:
and HOLY SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! look who is still alive:
the roar when he came on brought a smile to my German soul.

the New York Rangers fell behind 2-0 last night. i was interested to see what kind of character the team had built so far this season. they scored the next 3 goals to win 3-2 over Carolina. that's a good sign. they play next against Buffalo.

The Voice was interesting last night. 2 of 3 in the bottom were definitely who i thought was going to be down there. but, i certainly didn't expect Blake's team to lose 2 people last night.

Scream Queens was excellent last night.

i really enjoyed Van Morrison: Live at the Rainbow. it was a performance from 1973 and it simply reaffirmed my belief that i'm an old soul.

Smackdown was great last night. so was 205 Live on WWE Network. i'm so damn happy for Rich Swann.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, Total Divas and Lucha Underground. i'll watch NXT sometime tonight on WWE Network.

i got some great FREE music on NoiseTrade this morning. i'll post the links below in the music section.

i had to go to the grocery store today to pick up some of mom's medications. the woman working the counter at the pharmacy has me perplexed. she seems to be almost flirting with me but i can't decide if that's my brain fucking with me or is she actually interested. of course, i'm naturally shy, amazingly enough. so i'm pretty quiet and respectful, you know, thank you, you do the same, etc. type of shit. now, if i happen to have a little alcohol in me, all bets are off. just wanted all of you to know where the next set of poems will be coming from.

hard to believe that December starts tomorrow. i guess i need to start getting the Christmas cards ready to go out. i may put out some surprises as well this year, not sure yet. if a little whimsy gets blown up my ass, who knows what will happen.

i hope this finds everyone enjoying a beverage of your choice. take it easy and then take it again.

just trying to be productive

mom didn't have any of the complications i had with the shots she got yesterday. i am really happy about that. hopefully these shots work out good enough that she doesn't have to have surgery on her back.

i decided i was going to be a productive fucker today. for someone consumed with apathy, it's an accomplishment to even think it. i did the dishes, cleaned the toilets, went to the bank and grocery store, got gas and got the trash picked up here and next door. on top of all that, i also put out bird food. i figured it's going to rain tomorrow, so i'm sure the little fuckers would want it. all in all, not a bad day, although i could use a fucking nap.

Monday Night Raw was pretty good last night. they are actually on a streak of good shows, amazingly enough. i did enjoy the main event between Sasha Banks and Charlotte. i love just how far women's wrestling has come since i started watching wrestling when i was a child.

Gotham was spectacular last night. two major twists and an oh fuck ending... man, January can't get here soon enough.

The Voice was pretty good last night. some of the performances were just so so to me and the rest were fucking home runs. i'm not sure which 2 performers will get sent home tonight. here are some of the performances i liked:

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, Smackdown, The Voice, Scream Queens and Van Morrison: Live at the Rainbow. i'm also planning on watching 205 Live on WWE Network tonight. it's their new show for the cruiserweights.

the New York Rangers play tonight against Carolina. if they keep the current pattern up, they will win tonight since they lost their last game.

i may try to sneak in some college basketball tonight as well.

i'll probably be on here tomorrow after Manchester United plays. hopefully, i will be in a good mood.

it would have to be raining

nerves and arthritis are a shitty mixture, to say the least. today was the day mom got her first round of injections into her bad back. the doctor said it's one of the worst ones he has ever seen. she's actually getting a shot on each side of her spine. so far, she's doing much better than i did when i got my first shot for my back 8 years ago. hopefully it stays that way. the next round of shots will be in the middle of December. the doctor hopes that after all the shots are given, back surgery can be avoided. the hip is a completely different story. i have no clue when she'll get her hip replacement, but i'm thinking sometime in 2017.

my sister stayed around for the procedure. i think she wanted to know what was going on for herself. she got back home before all the damn rain really got going today.

it's the kind of rain that gets me drinking in the day. of course, i also wrote 3 poems, so it's not all bad. all 3 were from various thoughts while in the waiting room. give me a smoking hot receptionist in a dress that keeps climbing up her a thigh, 5 or 6 poor white trash motherfuckers and chaos erupting on a major college campus and you have the perfect recipe for some poems.

yesterday was a mix bag for me for sports. might as well start off with the good.

the Dayton Flyers lead for the majority of the game yesterday against New Mexico. i was most proud of the boys when they lost the lead and got it right back and quickly extended it. that's a good sign. Dayton defeated New Mexico 64-57 in the 5th place game of The Wooden Legacy tournament. they are off until Saturday.

the New Orleans Saints were facing an ex defensive coordinator yesterday. they obviously wanted to rub his nose in it. they got what they wanted. the Saints erupted for a 49-21 victory yesterday over the Rams. it was a pleasure to watch.

Manchester United got scored on in the first 90 seconds yesterday. i was not pleased. they did come back to tie the game at 1 on a great goal from Zlatan, but they could never find the goal to win the game, thanks to West Ham's goalie standing on his head for most of the second half. a 1-1 draw with West Ham is basically a loss. that's the 4th straight home draw in the league. they haven't done that since 1980. they play West Ham again on Wednesday in the League Cup. hopefully they will find a way to win. they won't have Paul Pogba for that game due to yellow cards. great.

the New York Rangers are back in their old ways of looking great one game and mediocre the next. now, i do think Ottawa's goalie played a role in that, but the boys have to know by now that you can't be all flash every fucking game. you need a little KISS theory now and then as well. the Rangers lost 2-0. they play again tomorrow against Carolina.

Westworld was fucking great last night. it was a mind fuck that i truly enjoyed. the season finale next week should be spectacular.

Divorce was very funny last night.

the season finale of Insecure was awesome last night. i loved the tease of them getting back together and then it not happening. that was an excellent way to set up season 2.

Shameless was great last night.

The Affair was very interesting last night. i'm really interested to see what happens next week.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, The Voice and Gotham. i will be watching Monday Night Raw for most of the evening, provided that the rain doesn't fuck up the satellite feed.

2 of the things i ordered mom for Christmas have already arrived. that's a good sign.

all in all, it was nice to have my sister down for the holiday weekend. i think she has a better understanding of what mom is facing and how things are really going down here.

i hope everyone had a great weekend. hopefully if you did do some holiday shopping, you got a great deal.

instant classic

sports are at their best when the hype of the event gets lived up to. yesterday's game between Ohio State and that team up north certainly is one of the best examples. the game had absolutely everything in it. Ohio State won 30-27 in double overtime. i will certainly remember this victory for a long time. now, Ohio State will have to see what the playoff committee does since Penn State will be playing in the Big 10 Championship game. i can't imagine they will take Ohio State out of the top 4.
hats off to the school up north's coach for showing his true colors after the game. whining about the officials like the true piece of shit he is. hopefully he never beats Ohio State and then runs back to coach in the NFL so he stops being an embarrassment to his school.
i could watch these videos for the rest of the year...

i was absolutely spent after the game. it felt like my heart was pounding through my chest. i feel comfortable knowing that one of these games will kill me one day.

ROH was excellent last night. Final Battle certainly looks very interesting this year.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Westworld, Divorce, Insecure, Shameless and The Affair.

congrats to my old high school on making it to the division 3 state finals in football.

Manchester United takes on West Ham later this morning. i'm really hoping they can get all 3 points today, they certainly need them.

the New Orleans Saints play against the Rams today. they are at home, so i'm hoping the good Saints team shows up today.

the Dayton Flyers play in the 5th place game today out in California against New Mexico. this will certainly be another test for the Flyers shorthanded big men. hopefully they can eek out a victory and have a happy flight home.

later tonight, the New York Rangers take on Ottawa. hopefully they can start another winning streak.

so, if all goes well, i'll be drinking all day long today. the life of a poet.

i will be on here tomorrow after i get back from taking mom to have her first injection done. if all goes well, i should be on here in the afternoon.

i hope everyone had a wonderful Saturday. hopefully your Sunday will be even better.

the game

being a guy who has lived in the state of Ohio his entire life, today is one of those days that takes me back to when i was a child. the importance of it was made very simply to me. you root for Ohio State or you can find somewhere else to live. now, part of that is a hindsight discussion for another day, but i learned very early that Ohio State vs. the team up north is a matter of life and death, love and hate. and now that i'm 40 and hate nearly everything in that state up north, i understand. this is a day that either brings immense joy or ruins part of your whole god damn life. and i wouldn't have it any other way.

the New York Rangers bounced back yesterday and defeated the Flyers 3-2. The King had 40 saves and looked like he had put the Pittsburgh debacle behind him. they play again on Sunday against Ottawa.

the Dayton Flyers started off much better last night and found a rhythm. now, the defense still has miles to go before they can get to where they need to be, but i'll gladly take a team than can shoot the 3. Dayton defeated Portland last night 84-74. they play tomorrow afternoon against New Mexico in the 5th place game.

i wrote 6 poems last night. i typed them up right after i wrote them. always nice to get that all done in under 60 minutes. i really liked some of the poems. i think i'm going to try to get another round of submissions out before the end of the month.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be ROH.

the rest of today basically depends on what Ohio State does. a win, and i'll be a happy motherfucker for the rest of the day. a loss, and i will be your worst nightmare version of me.

i'm going to try to be on here in the morning tomorrow. Sunday is a bit of a clusterfuck seeing that Manchester United, the New Orleans Saints and Dayton Flyers are all playing right around the same time tomorrow. though i am looking forward to the possibility of drinking the rest of the day away after the games.

i hope everyone has a wonderful Saturday. go support your favorite small business. and remember to only fuck the ones that cough.

how capitalism killed "America" Friday

i never have gone shopping on Black Friday. i never have felt the need to. i did get all my shopping done yesterday online, mostly because i don't like people and i'm lazy. the endless commercials and people trampling over people to get whatever is infuriating as much as it is comical. as a poet, i love the chaos. as a human, i often wonder how the fuck all of us are the same species.

the Dayton Flyers started off flat as fuck last night. they couldn't hit the fucking ocean with the ball if they tried. at one point, i believe they were down 21-7. as they usually do, they clawed their way back to tie the game. and like usual, they ran out of gas to be down by 9 at halftime. they hung around in the second half and made a late run, taking the lead in the final 30 seconds of the game. that would be their only lead of the game. Nebraska won 80-78. that means Dayton will play Portland tonight, instead of UCLA. so, that means tonight becomes a MUST WIN game unless you'd like to have one of those "ugly" losses that keeps teams out of the NCAA tournament in March. these last two games have taken a few years off of my life.

thankfully, Manchester United did a much better job earlier in the day. the team played with an urgency that was needed and got some clinical finishing for a change. a 4-0 win over Feyenoord was just what they needed. now they can control their own destiny in the Europa League. the best part of yesterday's game was when the sun actually shined on a dog's ass and Wayne Rooney scored. he's now 1 goal away from being the club leader in goals. the boys take on West Ham next on Sunday.

Life in Pieces was hilarious last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

the DVR gets the night off tonight.

the New York Rangers play Philadelphia this afternoon. i'd really love to see the boys get back to winning consistently again.

i think i had a pretty productive Thanksgiving. i got mom's laundry done, although i'm not fucking sure where that other sock went. i also got all my Christmas shopping done. thank you Amazon.com.

i think i may try to do some writing today and maybe i'll get drunk enough that i'll actually do a video or something. who knows.

i hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. enjoy your consumerism day. and remember to help the little guy out tomorrow.

happy thanksgiving

a lesson i learned early in life was just because you are miserable, you don't have to make everyone else miserable. with that in mind, i hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving.

the New York Rangers were leading 1-0 last night after the first period. i'm not really sure who was in those blue uniforms after that point as Pittsburgh fucking destroyed them, 6-1. oh well.

the Saturday Night Live Thanksgiving Special was pretty funny last night.

Lucha Underground was good last night. i wouldn't have had Sexy Star lose the title just after one week, but i understand.

NXT was mostly a highlight show from the latest TakeOver. that's not a bad thing.

Total Divas was hilarious last night. when Lana threw the shot put into Natalya's windshield, i laughed my ass off.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Life in Pieces.

Manchester United plays in the Europa League today against Feyenoord. it's at home and it's a MUST WIN game.

the Dayton Flyers play Nebraska tonight out in California. i'm interested to see how the team plays now that they have had a few practices with the smaller lineup. if they can win, they will most likely play UCLA tomorrow.

i imagine i will spend most of the day watching football and finishing up mom's laundry.

i did listen to the latest Sam Roberts Wrestling podcast this morning. i highly recommend it. you can find it by going here: http://notsam.com/wrestlingpodcast/2016/11/23/wrestling-podcast-109-colt-cabana

i'm also going to try to get at least some of my Christmas shopping done today. god willing, i'll get it all done.

i hope everyone has a lovely Thanksgiving. if you're in a different part of the world, a little advice from Janne Karlsson:

be well. be creative. be cool. be quick to send me CASH, panties, hate mail, love letters, broken promises and dirty pennies from heaven.

peace and chicken grease...

of course it would be raining

i generally hate the holidays. too many god damn memories of dysfunctional families in my youth. plus, being molested by a cousin didn't help matters. so with Thanksgiving tomorrow, i was hoping for a nice and quiet day. i woke up this morning to rain and the trash guy leaving the fucking lid open on the trash can. nothing quite like being pissed off and in pain at 8 in the morning.

i'm busy trying to write this while doing laundry for my mom and talking to my sister on the phone. joy.

The Voice last night was good. the person i thought should have been sent home last week got voted off this week. i was a little shocked with whom she was against in the vote, but i think it's more of people voting against Miley more than anything.

Scream Queens was excellent last night.

Smackdown was really good last night. Dean Ambrose had me laughing the entire night. plus, you know it's a bizarre world when James Ellsworth is 3-0 against AJ Styles.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be the Saturday Night Live Thanksgiving Special, Total Divas and Lucha Underground. i'll watch NXT at some point tonight on WWE Network.

the New York Rangers play tonight at home against Pittsburgh. i would love to see them beat that team again. hopefully i'm enjoying a victory beer later tonight.

tomorrow should be a crazy day, between the football games, Dayton playing Nebraska in a college basketball tournament out in California and Manchester United playing in the Europa League.

and then there's that family shit as well. i figure i will help mom with some of the cooking. we made the ham today. usually my sister will bring food over from next door. and then my sister, mother and i will have a Thanksgiving dinner later in the evening.

i will probably do a little blog in the morning. in case i don't, i hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. safe travels and enjoy the food.

be well. be creative. be cool. be quick to send me CASH, panties, hate mail, love letters, broken promises and dirty pennies from heaven.

peace and chicken grease...

i'll call it punishment

i knew i had to go back to the grocery store to get a few things before Thanksgiving. plus, i had my pills to get. no big deal. i told mom i wanted to go today since it's supposed to rain tomorrow. i told her to put anything she wanted or needed on the list. she handed me back a scroll. i just laughed. my neck started bothering me last night and of course, i'll have to spend more than 30 minutes in the store. these are the days where i am so damn thankful i learned how to find the pleasure in the pain so many years ago.

i managed to keep it all under $130. i guess i was also buying food for my sister to cook while she's down here. she comes down tomorrow and is staying through mom's procedure on Monday. i get the feeling i should have went to the liquor store as well.

when the New York Rangers got down 2-0 last night, i wasn't very happy. when they stormed back to score the next 5 goals, i was really fucking pleased. nothing like whipping the team that knocked you out of the playoffs last season. they will get a chance to do it again tomorrow at home.

Monday Night Raw was pretty damn good last night. the segment between Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens was so damn good. i honestly thought they were breaking up so when it was revealed as a ruse, i laughed my ass off. and when Jericho got involved in the main event between Owens and Rollins wearing a Sin Cara mask, i laughed even harder. that was the guy he reportedly got into a "real" fight with in Europe a few weeks ago. i'm hoping they can take all the positive vibes from this show and carry it to next week.

Gotham was spectacular last night. i love a show where there are so many unexpected twists that keeps me guessing what's next.

The Voice was pretty good last night. some of the performances were amazing, while others just didn't do any thing for me. i have no clue who is getting the boot tonight. here are some of the performances i really enjoyed:

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be The Voice, Smackdown and Scream Queens.

i got some great FREE music on NoiseTrade this morning. i'll put the links below in the music section.

i saw that Bruce Arena is the coach of the USMNT now. hopefully he can guide them into the World Cup. they have never been in this position before, losing the first two matches of qualifying.

i didn't sleep well last night. i could never get my neck into a good position that i didn't feel that pinched nerve feeling down my right arm. i figure i either passed out from exhaustion or my brain simply overrode the pain and allowed me to get a few hours.

typing is no joy when it feels like your right arm is radiating.

that's all for me today kids. go get the unreleased Prince single "Moonbeam Levels" on iTunes. it's great.

be well. be creative. be cool. be quick to send me CASH, panties, hate mail, love letters, broken promises and dirty pennies from heaven.

peace and chicken grease...

the Monday blues

i woke up this morning when the phone rang at 8:30 AM. i had been asleep for almost 4 hours. i put on my glasses and looked at the caller i.d. it was the Vietnam Vets. as i walked to the bathroom to take a piss, i muttered that it was times like these that you wish your father would have actually died in the war like he wanted to. welcome to my Monday morning.

the New York Rangers lost to Florida in a shootout last night, 3-2. more importantly, they lost Mika Zibanejad to a broken leg for the next 6 to 8 weeks. fuck, 2 losses in a row and now the bad luck comes back around. oh goody, they play Pittsburgh tonight. fuck me runnin'.

Survivor Series last night was way better than i thought it was going to be. all the matches were interesting and entertaining, a rarity for the WWE anymore. i was very pleased right up until the main event. when Goldberg beat Brock Lesnar in 84 seconds, i was shocked. and that thrilled me as i have been watching wrestling for more than 35 years. the fact that i was shocked means "they" did a good job. i'm very interested to see what happens tonight on Monday Night Raw.

Westworld was very good last night.

Divorce hit a little close to home last night. the debt talk reminded me so much of my father.

Insecure was close to perfect last night. i love shows that are comedies but remember to never sugarcoat the drama.

Shameless was excellent last night.

The Affair was compelling start to holy shit finish last night. i can't wait for another crazy fucking season.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be The Voice and Gotham. i'll be watching Monday Night Raw for most of the evening.

i would watch some of the Monday Night Football game but both of my fantasy teams shit the bed yesterday.

a ray of sunshine came through today when USA Soccer relieved Jurgen Klinsmann of his duties. i'm surprised they waited this long to do it. everything i'm hearing is that Bruce Arena will be the next coach. i'm hoping it's a temporary thing, unless of course he guides the team into the World Cup. i'd love to see someone younger get the job and really excite not only the players, but the nation. but the first job of whomever gets the position will be to fix what Jurgen broke. and that is the belief of the players that they are good enough to compete at this level. i know for a fact that Bruce Arena is good at that.

i've actually taken some time in the last 2 days to figure out a few ideas on what to get my mother and sister for Christmas. if any of you would like to be on my Christmas card/goodies list, be sure to send me your mailing addresses so i can add you to the list. my email is jcampb4593@aol.com.

and if you'd like to get me something for the holidays, the link to my Amazon.com wish list is on the right hand side of this blog.

i hope everyone had a great weekend.

be well. be creative. be cool. be quick to send me CASH, panties, hate mail, love letters, broken promises and dirty pennies from heaven.

peace and chicken grease...
