first off, a little poetry news... i heard back from Big Hammer on my recent poetry submission. Dave really dug what i sent but he's taking a break from publishing at the moment. he wants me to send him some work in 6 months. i will gladly do that. you can find issue #18 of Big Hammer here:
NXT Takeover: Respect last night was very good. i think i would have made a few different decisions but i understand why HHH went the way he did with the tag team tournament. and the main event did not disappoint, although i think i enjoyed the Brooklyn match better. that being said, 2 of the 5 greatest women's wrestling matches i have ever seen are Sasha Banks vs. Bayley. enjoy some highlights:
Table for 3 with Dean Ambrose, Cesaro and Kevin Owens did not disappoint either. it had me laughing for the entire 30 minutes:
American Horror Story: Hotel was fucking crazy, bloody, freaky and fucking great last night. a little too much male ass for my taste but the dildo drilled into the ass was certainly a scene i will never be able to erase from my brain. if this is any indication how this season is going to be... it will be the best season of the series EVER.
You're The Worst was great last night. kind of repeated the same ending as last week but with another subtle twist. i can't wait to see where this goes.
the New York Rangers got off to a great start last night. they blitzed Chicago for 3 goals in the first period. i guess they were pissed because the ceremony for the Stanley Cup and raising the banner went longer than expected. those 3 goals held up as the Rangers won 3-2. Chicago nearly tied the game late but the refs and the replay assholes made the right call. i was certainly waiting for the FUCK THE RANGERS button to be pushed in Toronto. maybe this will be a different season. i will be in Columbus tomorrow night to see the Rangers take on the Blue Jackets. here's the highlights from last night:
time for some music kids:
and now some of this and that:
there really isn't anything that needs to go on the DVR tonight. i'll be flipping between the NFL game and some hockey games. i'm interested in seeing the top 2 rookies make their debuts tonight. since they are talking them up like it's the second coming of the great one, i figure i might as well take a look. i have no players going tonight in fantasy football so i'm not sure how much of the game i will watch.
i listened to the Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast this morning. if you would like to hear Dolph Ziggler stick one to John Cena, i highly recommend it.
notsam.com and on the right hand side of this blog.
i will be on here early tomorrow as we will have to leave in the afternoon to get up to Columbus for the game. so expect a quickie tomorrow. i know some of you with your minds in the gutter don't mind that.
that's all for me kids. i hope everyone is doing better than normal.
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...
