imagine a beautiful woman looking away in disgust...

i saw two absolutely stunning women in the grocery store today. both looked at me and turned away in disgust. suddenly, i remember exactly what high school felt like. good times.

mom had both physical and occupational therapists out here today. she did really good. so, in a week, it will be onto outpatient physical therapy. i guess i'll be writing more poems in waiting rooms again.

the New York Yankees finally won last night, 8-4. thank fucking god. hopefully they win again tonight.

NXT was really good last night.

Lucha Underground was great once again last night.

Lip Sync Battle was pretty fucking funny last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight.

i will spend most of the night watching the NBA draft.

i wasn't really surprised with the selections for the NHL expansion draft last night. i think Las Vegas will have a pretty good team. it's obvious they want to build from the draft.

i did listen to the Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast this morning. i loved the interview with Alexa Bliss. you can find the podcast by going here:
https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/sam-roberts-wrestling-podcast/id934576040?mt=2

i guess we're going to get a ton of rain over the next few days. fucking great.

if i can tell rain coming from a couple hundred miles away because of my arthritis at age 41, what the fuck is it going to be like when i'm in my 50's or god forbid, my 60's?

i did see a little of the 1-1 draw between Cameroon and Australia today. i watched the first half of Germany and Chile before i went to the grocery store. i saw the game ended with the same score as when i left, 1-1. the Confederations Cup group play will end this weekend. i don't think any team has qualified for the semifinals yet, so it should be interesting.

that's all for me today kids. i need to go make dinner and ponder if heroin will take away my arthritis.

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...

spicy food in the afternoon and other ramblings of a...

congrats to my sister for buying the house she wanted. here's hoping your condo sells for more than you dream of and the move in goes great. she's moving across the street from friends she has known since college, so i know their kids will be thrilled.

mom's doctor's appointment went pretty good today. the surgeon basically told her no to the injections in her back. that made me happy, as from what mom is saying (at least today), the injections won't do her much good. she starts her physical therapy outside of the home next week. tomorrow, physical and occupational therapy will be out here to basically clear her to do the therapy outside of the home. i did have a talk with mom today about making sure she's clear with what she is telling the doctors. i put it sort of plain and simple. be as simple and as accurate as you can be or i will do it for you. and since she was tired as hell today (what, you can't do 2 different doctor's appointments in a day less than a month after having your hip replaced at 64), she was basically telling the doctor's the opposite of what she was telling her back doctor yesterday. looks like i will get to wear my asshole hat soon.

quick update on the cleaning ladies fiasco... my cousin was over yesterday to do the yard and re-pot a plant for mom. mom asked her to look under my bed for that Batman night light. sure enough, in the middle of the floor underneath the bed, there it was. i'm not sure why neither of the ladies wouldn't just tell me it got knocked off the desk and rolled under the bed. mom fired them since she thought, as did i, that it was stolen. i have no clue if she's going to have them back now or not.

the New York Yankees lost again last night, 8-3. that's 7 fucking losses in a row. that's their longest losing streak in a decade. joy. hopefully it will be broken tonight.

Smackdown was really good last night. it was great that Daniel Bryan was back. you could tell the whole show had a different vibe.

205 Live was excellent last night as well.

Deadliest Catch was good last night.

The Jim Jefferies Show was fucking hilarious last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, Lucha Underground and Lip Sync Battle. i'll watch NXT tonight on WWE Network.

i did listen to the latest Jim Norton & Sam Roberts podcast this morning. you can find that by going here: https://soundcloud.com/jimandsamshow/ep-031-taylor-schilling-and-laura-prepon-orange-is-the-new-black

i caught the second half of Portugal's win over Russia today and the last 20 minutes or so of Mexico's win over New Zealand in the Confederations Cup.

i'm going to be interested to see who the Las Vegas NHL team takes tonight in the expansion draft. i figure the New York Rangers will lose Oscar Lindberg. that's exactly who i would be taking if i was their GM. hard to believe the NHL draft is just a couple days away.

even harder to believe the NBA draft is tomorrow. i can't wait to see how the Sacramento Kings fuck it up this year.

that's all for me kids. mom and i had a pretty big lunch, so i think dinner is going to be just enough food to take our pills and that's it. and since i got the dishes done this morning, i'm off to go take a damn shower and ice my back down for the night.

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

at least the humidity went down...

i feel bad for my mother. her first doctor's appointment went pretty good as she learned her insurance would cover another round of shots for her back. then, her next appointment was with the eye doctor. she now has cataracts in both eyes. she mentioned something about the steroid injections she gets for her back to the doctor and he then said well, now you know why your cataracts are so bad. so, as we were driving away, i told mom she has to really attack her physical therapy for her hip when she's getting the injections for her back so she won't need those injections again. she's hoping to put off the surgery for her cataracts until after she gets all 3 rounds of shots for her back. i swear, if it's not one thing, it's another. and now we get to see the surgeon that did her hip tomorrow. joy.

Monday Night Raw was pretty good last night. i thought the show had a pretty good flow for all 3 hours. i truly enjoyed Braun Strowman coming back to destroy Roman Reigns, after Samoa Joe destroyed him as well. plus, Big Cass turning on Enzo was excellent.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, WWE Smackdown, Deadliest Catch and The Jim Jefferies Show. i will watch 205 Live sometime tonight on WWE Network.

the New York Yankees start a series at home tonight against the Angels. hopefully they stop the damn losing streak tonight.

since we aren't supposed to get any rain for a few days (fingers crossed), i put out some bird food today.

i'll be on here tomorrow sometime after mom's doctor's appointment and (maybe) a trip to the bank.

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

more afternoon thunderstorms...

i think i can tell now when it's going to be a really bad storm. the last two thunderstorms that have come through here, five minutes before they hit, my right shoulder started to hurt. so, chalk another one up for arthritis. thankfully i got the mail before the rain came. i could tell right away when i walked out of the house, we were going to get nailed. clouds as dark as night at 2 in the afternoon are never a good thing.

i got some great FREE music on NoiseTrade this morning. here is the link:
Coastal Club - Coastal Club

the New York Yankees pissed away another lead yesterday and got swept by Oakland 4-3. that also means the lead in the division is gone as well. thank god they are off today and play tomorrow at home. of course, i just found out their top prospect in AAA needs Tommy John surgery. so much for him coming up this season and being their next third baseman. when it rains, it pours.

i picked every match on WWE Money in the Bank correctly last night. i even had the interference correct. i suppose that's not a good thing. i wasn't thrilled with the show until the main event. the match between AJ Styles, Kevin Owens, Shinsuke Nakamura, Sami Zayn, Dolph Ziggler and Baron Corbin was spectacular. and i'm really happy they gave Baron the briefcase. they can do so much with him now in that position. that is of course if the writers actually have a fucking plan for him. the one thing i have learned over the years with WWE is so much of it is done by the seat of their pants.

Silicon Valley was hilarious last night. the season finale looks like it will be amazing next week.

Veep was great last night. the season finale next week looks great as well.

Last Week Tonight was hilarious as always.

Twin Peaks: The Return was yet another delicious mindfuck.

I'm Dying Up Here was really good last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

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

i saw the news about what happened in London last night. i always find it interesting when a white person goes on an attack, he's mentally unstable. when a person of color does it, they are a terrorist. i suppose once that difference gets removed from society, we will finally be a step closer to racial equality. although, i doubt i see it happening in my lifetime.

i did watch Germany beat Australia in the Confederations Cup today, 3-2. finally, i get to enjoy some alcohol tonight.

i hope everyone had a great weekend. at the very least, i hope your weekend was better than mine.

mom has two appointments i have to drive her to tomorrow, back doctor and eye doctor. i imagine i will be back on here sometime after all that is over.

just imagine my anger

first off, Happy Father's Day to all the good fathers out there. i never knew what that was like, so enjoy it you lucky fuckers.

we've had some storms overnight, so my arthritis has been fucking with me. so, during that pain this morning, i happened to notice that my desk in my room looked different. i knew the cleaning ladies were here yesterday, so that didn't seem too unusual. that was until i noticed one of my Batman items was missing. i had the night light that i hardly ever use sitting out on the corner and it was gone. i searched all over the room, thinking maybe it got knocked over or fell off or something. no such luck. so, i can only assume one of the cleaning ladies stole the damn thing. i can't imagine this weekend being any better for me. theft, my sister burning food and using every fucking dish in the house, thoughts of my father and our shitty relationship, my mother trying her best to get better while dealing with getting older, and here i am, in fucking pain every other second i take a breath. yet another day i will apologize to the 8 year old me. as usual, you were absolutely correct. a ladder, a rope and the tree in the backyard... the only freedom i was ever going to know.

the New York Yankees lost yet again yesterday to Oakland, 5-2. that's 5 damn losses in a row. they will try to avoid the sweep this afternoon.

the T.J. Miller comedy special on HBO last night, Meticulously Ridiculous, was fucking as absurd as i thought it was going to be. some parts had me scratching my head and other parts had me laughing my ass off.

ROH was excellent last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Silicon Valley, Veep, Last Week Tonight, Twin Peaks: The Return and I'm Dying Up Here.

i will be watching WWE Money in the Bank for most of the evening. at least on paper, it should be a very good event.

i have watched most of the Confederations Cup today. the match between Mexico and Portugal was very good. Chile vs. Cameroon is on right now.

i wrote 5 poems last night. given the mood this blog post has been in, you can imagine what the poems were like. i really liked a few of them. i need to write a few more before i think of my next round of submissions.

it looks like it's getting ready to storm here, so that's all for me kids. i hope everyone had a great Saturday. hopefully your Sunday will be even better.

not the start to the weekend i was hoping for...

i just had got done eating a banana. i was sitting at the computer and then i had one of those oh shit moments. my stomach started rumbling and then it was a mad dash. this is exactly how i wanted to start a Saturday where it's supposed to be 94 degrees and humid as fuck. god ripping his fist through my asshole to the point where i'm sitting on the toilet wondering if i'll ever get to come off the cross. and when the first wipe is more blood than shit, you can just imagine how the rest of my damn day is going to be.

i slept like shit last night. i woke up at 5 in the morning and had a poem right on the tip of my tongue. but i never could work out an ending, so i just said fuck it and tried to get some more sleep. i might have got 5 hours total. my sister, no matter what the circumstance is, gets 7 or more every fucking night. i think one of these mornings when she's here and i'm trying to be quiet while taking my blood sugar in the kitchen... i'm just going to poke myself hard enough that i scream. see if that wakes her up.

this road trip for the New York Yankees has turned into the road trip from hell. they dug themselves out of a hole last night, thanks to Aaron Judge and even took the lead. but, just like the last few days, the bullpen pissed away the lead and the Yankees lost again to a shitty Oakland team 7-6. hopefully they will end this damn losing streak this afternoon.

the 3 episodes of NJPW were excellent last night.

VICE was very interesting last night. i love that Russia thinks climate change is bullshit and is making sure they rape the planet until there is nothing left. no wonder Trump think climate change is a hoax.

Real Time with Bill Maher was very good last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be T.J. Miller: Meticulously Ridiculous and ROH.

i will probably watch a little of the Confederations Cup today, but not much of it.

mom is in her paranoid space once again, trying to clean the house before the house cleaners come. if anyone ever wonders why the fuck i'm crazy, right there is exhibit fucking A.

i think my sister is taking care of dinner tonight. sadly, that means nearly every dish and utensil in the house will need to be washed afterwards. joy.

that's all for me kids. i hope everyone has a great Saturday. call if you need bail money.

a hot and humid happy birthday

today my mother turns 64. she looked a little puzzled at the card i gave her. it was a penguin saying all these positive things. she then looked inside and it was blank, except for what i wrote... don't worry, it all will be over soon. HAPPY FUCKING BIRTHDAY i then gave her a Marvin The Martian Hot Wheels car and a deluxe edition of Sgt. Pepper's by the Beatles. i figured with her turning 64, that gift just made too much sense. she liked them both.

the frames i ordered from Hobby Lobby came today. thankfully, nothing was damaged like the horror stories i read on their website.

the New York Yankees are now inventing ways to lose games. they scored in every inning from the 6th on last night, and still managed to fucking lose 8-7 in 10 innings. and now the injuries are piling up. Adam Warren, Gary Sanchez and Aaron Hicks. just fucking great. hopefully they stop the damn losing streak tonight in Oakland.

Vice News Tonight had another great week of shows.

The Putin Interviews, Part 4 were pretty damn comical last night. i did howl when Putin more or less said Trump is stupid and will have to learn while on the job. and i love when he suddenly starts talking perfect english when he's talking to a woman.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be VICE, NJPW and Real Time with Bill Maher.

i went to the grocery store earlier this afternoon. it was probably too damn hot but, fuck it. as soon as i walked in, this unbelievably attractive woman walked past me and smiled. of course, i was headed to the pharmacy and she was going the opposite direction. i was really hoping to run into her while going around the store. of course, that never happened. i figure there's another poem. i got mom a small birthday cake and some other things she wanted. and amazingly, i got her the right pads this time. i made sure she wrote down as much info as i needed on the grocery list so i would get the ones she wanted this time. see women, a man that can follow directions. how you doin'?

i guess my sister is bringing pizza for dinner tonight. oh goody, pizza and cake. and only two toilets in the house. at least we know the code to get in next door. that might come in handy at some point.

i hope everyone has a great weekend. i will try to be on here tomorrow before the cleaning ladies are here.

the joys of arthritis

i kind of figured it would go like this. i've had a good number of poems published in the last 12 hours or so. and i try to do my part and make sure to post them on the places i always post, help get the word out. but, my arthritis is such now that even typing is becoming a fucking nightmare. i feel like i have had 40 some years of trying to find the pleasure in the pain... and just when i need to the most, i won't be able to. if that doesn't sum up my existence on this earth, i don't know what does.

the New York Yankees scored 4 in the first inning last night. so, to see them lose 7-5 to the Angels made me a little fucking angry. one of those games where they couldn't get a big hit when they needed it and the third base coach made one of the worst decisions i have ever seen. i know Aaron Judge has pretty good speed for a man his size, but to send him from second when the outfielder has the ball before the runner even touches third base is inexcusable. fuck, i probably would have fired him on the spot, that's how damn bad it was. the Yankees will try to end their losing streak as they start a series out in Oakland tonight.

NXT was pretty good last night.

Lucha Underground was excellent last night, mostly because Pentagon Dark was back.

The Putin Interviews, Part 3 were pretty interesting last night. i got a good laugh at Putin explaining that he did nothing wrong in Ukraine and it was all Europe's and the USA's fault. it was also the first time i had seen inside The Kremlin in years. i think the only thing that had changed since Stalin was the paint. Part 4 should be interesting tonight. of course, i expect more creative bullshit answers.

i guess i need to go figure out dinner. joy.

more rain, oh joy...

this has been a day full of gloom. more thunderstorms and plenty of fucking rain. i just checked the rain gauge and it was at 2.4 inches. that was just from this morning to about 3 this afternoon.

the New York Yankees lost last night, 3-2 in 11 innings. worse, CC injured his hamstring and will probably have to go on the disabled list. now, the Yankees have plenty of options to replace him, but i don't think any of them are pitching as well as he was. hopefully the Yankees win the series tonight against the Angels.

The Jim Jefferies Show was fucking hilarious last night.

Deadliest Catch was very good last night.

The Putin Interviews, Part 2 were good last night. i did get a chuckle with the shit eating grin on Putin's face when he told Oliver Stone that Russia doesn't mettle in domestic affairs in other countries.

Smackdown was very good last night. i can't wait for this Sunday and all the possibilities of what could happen at Money in the Bank.

205 Live was very good as well last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, Lucha Underground and The Putin Interviews, Part 3. i'll watch NXT on WWE Network sometime tonight.

when i saw there was a shooting in Alexandria, Virginia today, i jumped on the computer as quick as i could. that is where one of the loves of my life lives. i love how none of the media pointed out this was a white person who did this today. now, i do find some humor in a gun toting liberal targeting Republicans. i wonder if anyone wants to talk about gun control now?

mom's getting closer to getting released from home healthcare. i believe that is when her physical therapy will really kick up. and since she doesn't drive anymore, i will get to play chauffeur once again.

i guess my aunt didn't do so great in surgery yesterday and they had to go back in to do more today. i started wondering this afternoon which assholes are going to be living next to us when she sells that house. i know if it isn't family, i'll probably have to go buy a lawnmower. there's something i was hoping to avoid for the rest of my life.

that's all for me today kids. i either am going to go nap on my bed or try to find the pleasure in the pain and go do the fucking dishes.

response from Synchronized Chaos

i heard back from Cristina at Synchronized Chaos on my poetry submission from earlier today. my poems "up against the roof", "in a sweet oblivion", "knocking you back down", "a taste for trouble" and "prince would have been 59 today" have been accepted for publication in the July issue.

afternoon thunderstorms...

my bones were aching before i went out to get the mail. when i noticed the really dark cloud as i walked out to the mailbox, i knew i was in for a shitty afternoon. i did my best to get the mail inside next door before it started to pour. and by pour, i mean just fucking dump buckets and buckets of fucking rain. when it really rains like this, both of my legs feel like they are going to snap in two. that should illustrate to you how brutal my arthritis pain is. 

for some fucking reason, during the rain i decided to send out some poems. i sent out 13 poems; 2 to Winedrunk Sidewalk, 5 to Synchronized Chaos and 6 to Midnight Lane Boutique. when i hear back from these places, i will pass along the verdicts.

the New York Yankees pissed away a lead last night only to have Aaron Judge bail them out again. he hit his major league leading 22nd home run to help the Yankees beat the Angels last night, 5-3. that's the Yankees sixth straight win. hopefully they make it 7 tonight.

The Putin Interviews, Part 1 last night was pretty good. i have always had a fascination with Russia since i was told as a child they were evil. i was never the type of kid to just take what my elders told me and believe it. i had to learn for myself. the Russian people are not evil. the government, like ALL governments, most likely is. and i see how Putin could easily manipulate Trump given their shared hatred for NATO. all in all, i thought it was a good start. hopefully Part 2 tonight will be as good.

Monday Night Raw started off so good last night. the brawl between Samoa Joe and Brock Lesnar was great. and then the show just sort of did nothing else for the rest of the night. i was hoping that the tag team title rematch was going to save the show, especially since it was 2 out of 3 falls. of course, when you have the final fall be a double count out, there's no way anyone could be happy with that finish.

enjoy some music:

i didn't watch any of the NBA Finals last night. i figured Golden State was going to win. the only thing i didn't like about that was David West getting a title. he will always be a piece of shit from Xavier that i will hate.

i found out today that my aunt, who got her hip replaced the same day as mom, has to go back to the hospital and more or less have the surgery redone. apparently she got an infection. both mom and i really wonder if she will ever make it back to the house next door.

that's all for me today kids. i have trash to pick up and i have to take a fucking shower.

the air you can wear

i went outside this morning to get the paper and it felt i was walking through a wall of humidity and heat. these are the days where i wish i would actually have a metabolism that worked. and of course, mom complained about the house being too cold last night... right as i was doing laundry and washing the dishes. good times.

the New York Yankees finished off the sweep of Baltimore yesterday, winning 14-3. they outscored the Orioles 38-8 in the series. this was the first time the Yankees have scored 8 or more runs in 5 straight games since 1956. Aaron Judge hit two more home runs yesterday, the first one being one of the longest home runs i have seen hit in the new Yankee Stadium. 495 feet. holy shit. the Yankees will go for their 6th win in a row tonight out in California against the Angels.

i was very interested to see how the men's national team was going to play last night against Mexico, especially since Bruce Arena was making 7 changes. when Michael Bradley scored a holy shit goal just 6 minutes in, i started dreaming of a victory. of course, Mexico evened the score 20 minutes later. i think the USA did enough to earn the point last night in the 1-1 draw. they have certainly played worse than that in that stadium before. all in all, to get 4 points in 2 games is about as well as they could have done. they raised their odds of qualifying for the next World Cup, and that's all that matters.

Silicon Valley was great last night.

Veep was very fucking funny last night.

Last Week Tonight was brilliant as always.

Twin Peaks: The Return was another glorious mindfuck last night.

I'm Dying Up Here was pretty good last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight and The Putin Interviews, Part 1.

i'll be watching Monday Night Raw for most of the evening.

i got some great FREE music on NoiseTrade this morning. the link will be below in the music section.

i did a little poetry work today. i believe i know where the next round of submissions are going to go.
that will most likely happen either tomorrow or Wednesday.

that's all for me today kids. 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...

out slumming with the locals

mom wants lunch today to have a picnic feel for some fucking reason. so, she sent me to the local grocery store to get coleslaw, potato salad, etc. i just love going out in the fucking heat to have a bunch of backward thinking locals stare at me while i'm ordering 6 different things from the deli. i was encouraged to actually see a black girl and two Hispanic kids in the store while i was there. it would delight me beyond belief to see this community get more diverse. better yet, i would love to see all the racist people flee as it becomes more diverse.

the New York Yankees got some more great starting pitching last night and absolutely whipped Baltimore 16-3. it was the first time in over nine years the Yankees have had 4 straight games with 8 or more runs. hopefully today will become the 5th straight game as they go for the sweep.

i ended up watching a good amount of UFC last night. plenty of quick knockouts, that's for sure.

ROH last night was excellent. i would love to see a nice long feud between Adam Cole and Marty Scurll.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Silicon Valley, Veep, Last Week Tonight, Twin Peaks: The Return and I'm Dying Up Here.

i will be watching the USA men's national team try to win down in Mexico for most of tonight. if the USA can pull of the miracle, it will give them a much needed boost in their World Cup qualifying.

i might watch a little of Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final tonight, if Nashville is winning.

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

happy birthday to the biggest crush i had in my life. i hope you are doing great, wherever you may be.

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...

before the heat takes over

yet another night of shitty sleep. i don't know if it's i'm just destined now to sleep good when i die or my back is just a hopeless venture crippling me from having a good night of sleep. the truly shitty thing is i used to be able to drink myself to sleep. now, the alcohol seems to energize me. of course, that's a sure sign that a full blown alcoholic is not that far away.

the New York Yankees won again last night, beating Baltimore 8-2. hopefully they can keep the streak going tonight.

the 2 episodes of NJPW last night were excellent. that match between Tetsuya Naito and Michael Elgin was a classic.

Real Time with Bill Maher last night was a memorable one.

i did watch a little of the NBA Finals last night. i did enjoy the fact that Golden State finally lost. if Cleveland can make Game 5 interesting, there might actually be hope that this could be a long series after all.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be ROH.

since i was up early this morning, i figured i would put out the bird food before it got too damn hot today. i think the heat index is supposed to be over 100 today.

dinner went better than i expected last night. i managed to not burn the pork chops and neither mom or my sister complained about them. my mother said my sister looked a little shocked to see me cooking in the kitchen when she arrived.

i'm hoping to rest for most of today. this will be a good day to just nap and maybe do some writing.

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

happy birthday to the first love of my life. i hope you have a wonderful day.

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...
