the New York Rangers did the exact same damn thing they did in Game 5 last night in Game 7. i bitch and bitch about the KISS theory all the time. for those who don't know about the KISS theory, it is this: Keep It Simple Stupid. the amazing thing, it fucking works. so, once again, the New York Rangers decided to try to put on a show instead of just playing meat and potatoes hockey last night. Tampa decided to go with the KISS theory once again and sure enough, they won 2-0, just like Game 5. The King played good enough to win last night but no one on offense did a fucking thing. and then i found out after the game that the Rangers captain has been playing with a broken foot since Game 4. lovely. that's the first Game 7 the Rangers have EVER lost at home. it's the first time The King has given up 2 goals in a Game 7 since his first one. also, Tampa becomes the first team ever to defeat 3 original six teams to advance to the Stanley Cup Final. for the 3 ex-Rangers on Tampa, i wish them well. but i'll hope that whatever team comes out of the west wins it all. and i don't see myself watching much hockey the rest of the season. last night was one of those defeats that crushes a bit of your soul.
the Yankees lost last night 6-2. i didn't watch any of the game. they play again tonight. i doubt i watch that game either.
after the hockey game ended, i watched the Louis C.K. comedy special from the other night. that was fucking excellent. after that, i watched the latest episode of NJPW. that was awesome as usual.
i put on about 5 hours of sad as fuck music last night to go to sleep to. i think i might have got around 4 hours or so.
i thought mom wanted to go to the farm today but she changed her mind, mostly because of the weather, and now we are going tomorrow morning. at least we did find the titles for everything we hope that is going to sell at the auction on June 3rd.
i put together the chair last night. the directions were sort of ripped in half, so that made it a little more difficult than it should have been. plus, they were more or less vague as hell. so, once i got it done and mom didn't like it, i wasn't happy and neither was she. she ended up calling Value City and told them they can pick it up next week and take it off of her credit card. so, now i don't know what we're going to do for the chair at the desk in the kitchen. i suppose we have another folding one somewhere around here for now. it amazes me at how a company is ok with having shitty customer service. last time mom will be shopping there.
a quick comedy break as i'm trying to force myself to laugh:
that didn't work, back to the music:
i watched the FA Cup final today. that was a fucking waste of time. sadly, Arsenal broke Manchester United's record for most FA Cup titles. that really put a cherry on my shit sundae.
instead of watching hockey tonight i'll probably watch the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame inductions on HBO. also on the DVR tonight will be the latest episode of ROH.
i got my second package from amazon.com today. i finally got the last two Guided By Voices cds. if they are the last ones they ever do together, Cool Planet was definitely a good one to leave on. i really enjoyed it. might be their best in my mind for the last 10 years or so.
that's pretty much all for me. i've got to go vacuum the house and then watch the skies. the way my bones are starting to feel, i think there may be some rain on the way. good times.
hope everyone is having a better weekend than i am. if not, this is why they have all those bottles of alcohol available for purchase.
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...
