The Camel Saloon is now closed for submissions. Many thanks for all the patronage.
while i was sad at first, i definitely want to thank Russell for the number of times he published me. in an odd way, i think he helped me become a better poet as he never settled on something from me. i appreciate editors and publishers that reject me while giving me a sense of what they want. i believe i have one more poem coming out before the doors are shut forever on the Saloon. what a glorious 5 years my friend.
as i figured they would yesterday, the New York Yankees won 10-2. hell, i left to take mom to the bank when they were up 10-0. Nova pitched great and the offense got some timely hits. what a concept. that stops the losing streak. they start a series in Houston tonight.
mom needed to go to the bank yesterday to deposit some money and then get a cashier's check to pay off the new house. she mailed that off this morning. i told her she should feel proud. she's more or less debt free at 62 years old. she should think of it as she won the game of life. now go fucking enjoy it.
a little music break before we get to last night on television:
Big Brother was interesting last night. only the first half of the cast was shown. more people get revealed on tonight's episode. the twists for this season will probably drive me nuts. it almost feels like the show is jumping the shark. i'll give it a couple of weeks to see how it goes before i pass judgement. all in all, it should be a very interesting and long season.
NXT was really good last night. whenever you have a main event that involves 3 of the best wrestlers on the planet, you can't go wrong with it. also, the segments they have been running on Finn Balor are top notch.
Lucha Underground was excellent one again. i really like how the show is building to Ultimate Lucha. enjoy some highlights:
i watched the main event from ROH again last night. you can never go wrong with the Young Bucks, AJ Styles and Okada in a match. i did watch the main event of TNA as well last night. honestly, it made me feel old:
here is some funny shit from last night:
tonight is another busy night on tv for me. the DVR will be busy. Big Brother is on tonight at the same time as the NBA Draft, the Yankees game and god knows what else. also tonight is the season finale of The Comedians.
another quick music break my friends:
give the Sam Roberts Wrestling podcast a listen this week. it is really good, especially if you are interested in knowing more about one of the men that are the future of pro wrestling:
notsam.com or on the right hand side of this blog.
thankfully, the rain of this morning has given way to some sunshine this afternoon. hopefully, it stays that way. we've been actually able to open some windows today and turn the air conditioning off. of course, the house is now close to 78 degrees and i'm wearing all black, so that might change before too long.
i hope this finds everyone drunk and happy.
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...
