a long, draining weekend

after thinking about it for a few hours, SummerSlam last night was a decent ppv that had a shitty finish and could have been so much better. the controversial finish between Undertaker and Brock Lesnar was stupid. i suppose this was all to set up another match down the line. if that was the best way WWE creative could up with, then i will send in my application tomorrow. i did like Jon Stewart turning heel and helping Seth Rollins defeat John Cena. i loved how no one on the broadcast said anything about the incredibly loud Thank You Stewart chants. i also enjoyed Kevin Owens defeating Cesaro. that match was great, it was just in the wrong spot on the card. the divas match had no flow in it at all. The New Day have won me over. they are playing the perfect heels. overall, as i figured, it wasn't as good as the NXT event the night before. and it went on for about 90 minutes too long. here's the thoughts of some more qualified people:

Monday Night Raw should be interesting. i figure the WWE will have a few tricks up their sleeves given all the publicity from last night. hopefully the third show from the same venue in 3 days goes out with a bang.

while i was watching wrestling last night, we had some rain come through. so imagine my surprise as i was watching the Sunday night shows and there was certain parts missing from the shows. thankfully, i was able to find most of them on the channels, so i didn't miss much. Big Brother was good. some more creative editing by CBS. the season finales of Ballers and The Brink went as i expected. neither show is "great". The Strain was fucking awesome last night. Ray Donovan and Masters of Sex were both really good. and as usual, Last Week Tonight was great once again:

i don't know what it is with the Yankees inability to beat last place teams, but it happened once again yesterday. and this time, it knocked them out of first place again. a 4-3 loss to a Cleveland team that is playing a ton of guys who no one has heard of before. as one headline writer put it, at least the ceremony was good. i was interested to see if Andy Pettitte was going to mention his HGH use at any point of his speech. he didn't, which didn't surprise me. i think most people have allowed themselves to forget about it. the Yankees play the first place Astros tonight, so maybe they will play like they are playing against a good team. i'm not holding my breath.

i'm currently watching Liverpool and Arsenal play. yet another game where i hope both teams lose.

i was a busy boy on NoiseTrade today. i got some great music for FREE. i'll include the links below in the music section.

since we're on the topic of music, enjoy:

and to round out the creative vibe, some art and some poetry:

on the DVR tonight will be Men in Blazers.

i hope everyone had a great weekend. the weather is supposed to take a turn towards the fall in the next few days. that means we're getting closer to me driving myself even more crazy with fantasy football. good times.

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...
