before the floods come, here are your daily links for national poetry month:
i have prepared myself for a week of pain as it is supposed to rain every single fucking day this week. can't wait to see what the grass looks like after this crazy week.
i typed up the 2 poems i wrote over the weekend. i think they are pretty good. i sent out my last submission of this month today by sending 5 poems out to Nerve Cowboy. that was a fun line to wait in at the post office. the hot brunette with the nice ass and wedding ring in front of me and the 3 old ladies bitching about not enough places to play bingo behind me. those poems will be coming soon i imagine. when i hear back from Nerve Cowboy, i'll pass along the verdict.
well, i made it through most of the Sunday night shows last night. Total Divas got left out as sleep won. but, i'll catch that a little later today. Nurse Jackie was really good once again. the final song in Californication blew me away. i was able to find that on iTunes. Silicon Valley and Veep were also very funny. but, the winner of the night goes to Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. that was crazy good for a first episode. i can't recommend the show enough. MUST WATCH, it's that good. i'm going to try to make my mother watch it here in a bit.
thankfully, that show ended in time for me to watch the final outs of the Yankees winning 3-2 last night with just 3 hits. Tanaka was "bad" for him, which really made me laugh. 6 1/3 with 2 runs and 4 walks and 11 strikeouts. god, i wish they could all be that "bad". if he continues to get better this season, he's going to be rewriting record books. another series win, which is how you have good seasons. they are off tonight and then welcome the Mariners to town. the return of Cano. i'll be interested to see how the crowd reacts to him.
as for tonight, the usual struggle between The Voice and Monday Night Raw. also, some playoff hockey and playoff basketball that will manage to creep in as well. plus, with the weather being fucking crazy at the moment, probably some of The Weather Channel as well. of course, all of that depends if the satellite feed stays strong. it has a tendency to crap out when the weather gets really bad. could be a night of writing by candlelight, who knows.
that's all for today folks. you'll notice some "new" music down below. i do believe it is official, i have lost my mind. i'll be on here tomorrow sometime in the afternoon or early evening.
peace and chicken grease.
