it reminded me of when i was asked to wash my father's feet

i was all set for the Dayton vs. Xavier game yesterday. i knew Dayton would only have a small chance to win, but i thought the guys were up to the challenge. sadly, within 30 seconds, i knew the officials were going to ruin this game. i understand that they want to clean up college basketball and get more flow into the games. trust me, as a viewer, there is no fucking flow when the whistle blows every 20 seconds or so. and no one on earth wants to watch a fucking free throw exhibition. that being said, Xavier absolutely whipped Dayton yesterday. i'm really hoping the boys were humbled to the point where they know they have to work that much harder. 90-61 was nothing like what i thought the game would be like. and honestly, during points of the second half where i had to change the channel or i was going to break the television, the game didn't feel that close.

that brings me to the New Orleans Saints. they lost yesterday 24-6. it was the first game in a decade where they didn't score a touchdown. it damn near reminded me of my youth where the fans of the Saints would wear bags on their heads. it was god fucking awful at times. and wouldn't you know, here come the undefeated Carolina Panthers. just tank the fucking season now and get a good draft pick. fuck me runnin'.

as you might imagine, my Sunday wasn't a really great day. i did manage to actually win a week in fantasy hockey. i went from last place in the division to 3rd. and i'm winning two of the three fantasy football matches. i need a bit of a miracle tonight from Baltimore, but given how they have played this season, i doubt it will happen.

thankfully, the Sunday night shows were excellent. Homeland was really good. The Affair was spectacular last night. the music was perfect. the pace of the show was perfect. the hot tub scene was awesome and the ending was heartbreaking and creepy at the same time. this season has really been better than the first one. i can't wait for next week.

enjoy some music kids:

and now some of this and that:

congrats to the Columbus Crew for making it to the MLS Cup. i'm tempted to find a way up there to see it next Sunday. doubt that happens though.

on the DVR tonight will be The Voice and Gotham. i'll be watching Monday Night Raw.

the New York Rangers play Carolina tonight at home. i'm really hoping they stop this fucking losing streak at 3.

in case you were wondering, the title of this blog post comes from what happened at the church i went to when we were taught a lesson in humility. my childhood is scarred from many of these lessons. it could be while i do believe in god and spirituality, the church itself can fucking go to hell. as George Carlin pointed out years ago, organized religion was created to keep crazy people in line. it has morphed into a perverted way to make money and keep people dumb. this is also why i don't talk about religion much. who the fuck wants to be reminded of washing your father's feet?

that's all for me today. once the guy mom hired puts in the new toilet (i might actually get to shit in my own bathroom for the first time since god knows when) we might take a trip to Best Buy to start the process of fixing my computer. i won't get my hopes up but at the very least, i'd love to get all my music and photos off of it. and i'm sure mom would like all her work shit off of it as well.

i hope everyone had a great weekend. your Sunday was most likely better than mine. can you fucking believe tomorrow is the first day of December? i guess i should get started on Christmas cards pretty soon. if i like you as a person and have your address, i'll give you a warning for when you should start checking the mail box.

be well. be creative. be cool. be quick to send me CASH, panties, hate mail, love letters, broken promises and dirty pennies from heaven.

winter will be here before too long

there's that chill in the air that only means it will be winter soon. or as i call it for fat people, fashion season. where you don't look ridiculous because you have on a few layers of clothes. the time of year where sweatpants are okay. good times.

my sports day yesterday wasn't awful. it wasn't great either, albeit i did enjoy Ohio State once again beating the shit out of Michigan. i suppose i should start there.

Ohio State did yesterday what they should have done all fucking season. run the ball, run it again, and then run it down their throat again. i believe they rushed for well over 300 yards against that shit school from up north. 42-13. i couldn't be happier.

Manchester United had its usual performance yesterday. a decent set piece but god fucking awful in the final third. that being said, i wasn't totally pissed with a 1-1 draw considering they lost at Leicester last season 5-3. of course, they did piss away a chance to be top in the league. if Arsenal wins today, they will be 4th. that's what happens when you can't score more than 1 fucking goal in a game.

but, in happier news, Happy Birthday to Ryan Giggs.

the New York Rangers played like shit yesterday. i guess losing Stepan and realizing the league wasn't going to suspend the dickhead that did the hit just took the life out of the team. losing 3-0 to Philadelphia at home to extend the losing streak to 3 games is hopefully the low point for the season. they play again at home on Monday.

Austin City Limits was good last night. i could listen to Jason Isbell play anything. ROH was excellent last night.

enjoy some music kids:

and now for some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Homeland and The Affair.

the New Orleans Saints play at Houston today. hopefully they come off the bye week with a victory.

the Dayton Flyers renew their rivalry with Xavier today down in Orlando, Florida. this will be for the championship of the Advocare Invitational. i hate Xavier with just about every fiber of my body, so i really want Dayton to win this championship.

my fantasy football teams look to be in good shape for this week. of course, that could all change by tomorrow. amazingly, it looks like i may actually win a week of fantasy hockey. HOLY SHIT.

my sister just left to go back up to Columbus. hopefully the travel isn't too bad for her on the highways.

i did a little poetry work last night. i think i figured what poems i'm going to send where in my last big submission of the year. i'd love to do that on my old computer, which hopefully will be getting fixed here soon. if not, i may just break out a credit card and get myself a new computer for Christmas.

that's all for me kids. i hope everyone had a great Saturday. hopefully your Sunday is even better.

be well. be creative. be cool. be quick to send me CASH, panties, hate mail, love letters, broken promises and dirty pennies from heaven.

underneath dreary skies

today is one of those days where sports will determine everything in my life. if all 3 of my teams win, i'll be on top of the world. if they all lose, i will be the miserable prick that my family has had to deal with more times than they care for.

but first, the highs and lows from yesterday...

the New York Rangers lost in Boston 4-3 yesterday. worse, they lost Derek Stepan for god knows how long with broken ribs on a dirty fucking hit. kudos to Dylan McIlrath for beating the shit out of the fucker that did it. hopefully the boys will get back to winning today at home against Philadelphia.

the Dayton Flyers built a huge lead last night and apparently this will be what they do this season; pissed it all away. thankfully, they came back late once again and won 73-70 over a very good Monmouth team. though, i could really do without those douche bags at the end of Monmouth's bench. they got more air time last night than the game almost. as i told my mother, there's the future of America. Dayton will play in the finals of the tournament on Sunday against their most hated rival, Xavier. it will be over 1,000 days since they last played each other. Dayton will have to be at their very best to win.

The Knick was outstanding last night. what really blew me away was seeing Jim Norton in the episode. that was really entertaining.

enjoy some music kids:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be ROH and Austin City Limits.

Ohio State plays that shit school from up north today. i'm really hoping Ohio State beats the shit out of them.

Manchester United takes on Leicester City today for top spot in the Premier League. since it's on the road, i don't have my hopes up for a United win. though, i'd be thrilled if they can fucking score.

both of those games and the New York Rangers game will be on at the same time today. joy.

i did listen to Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast last night. if you are a fan of Lucha Libre, it is a must listen.

i hope everyone has a great weekend. hopefully it isn't fucking raining where you are. as always, enjoy the day and call if you need bail money.

a Friday for all the races

as you might imagine, i'm not a big fan of Black Friday

i managed to get 95% of my Christmas shopping done yesterday. i got 12 items on Amazon and with all my gift codes, it cost me around $30. other than a few things here and there, i'm all done. that's the way it should always be done. of course, i don't really care for shopping or people, so perhaps i'm a bit biased.

my Thanksgiving was okay. i didn't eat nearly as bad as i usually do. of course, when my mother told me she was going to bring me a plate from next door, i figured it would be turkey, stuffing, potatoes, etc... instead it was 3 different desserts. so much for hoping your son doesn't get diabetes like everyone else in the family. it wasn't until 8 at night that i had some turkey and the fixings. i often wonder what i did in a previous life that i am in this family.

my fantasy football teams did pretty well yesterday. i picked 2 of the 3 games correctly. i still can't believe Chicago won last night in Green Bay.

the Dayton Flyers had the lead for most of the game yesterday against Iowa. but, being a life long Dayton fan, i know how quickly those leads get pissed away at times. sure enough, Iowa was ahead late. thankfully, Dayton caught a second wind and stormed back to win 82-77. they will play Monmouth tonight as they upset Notre Dame last night. if Dayton can win tonight it will most likely set up a final against their hated rival Xavier. that would come on Sunday.

for some reason Life in Pieces didn't record last night. i found it online and watched it this morning. pretty funny as usual.

my sister and i were hoping to go see the new James Bond movie while she was down here this holiday. she won some free tickets to the movie. unfortunately, her work (she's on call) has fucked her over and my sports teams are playing at times that don't exactly fit her schedule. so, that's not going to happen. of course, i wasn't real sure i wanted to sit for 2 1/2 hours for a movie i probably won't like.

enjoy some music kids:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be The Knick (hopefully).

the New York Rangers play this afternoon in Boston. hopefully they can get back to winning.

i will probably be on here in the morning tomorrow with a quick blog. my afternoon is crazy as Ohio State, New York Rangers and Manchester United will all be on at the same time tomorrow. i figure i'll be in my room as i will surely be going fucking crazy.

i hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. if you are going out shopping today, pick me up something nice. it doesn't have to be expensive. feel free to check out my Wish List for ideas. you can find a link to it on the right hand side of this blog.

until tomorrow you crazy kids. it's going to be raining all day here. so i figure i'll be in misery for most of the day.

be well. be creative. be cool. be quick to send me CASH, panties, hate mail, love letters, broken promises and dirty pennies from heaven.

giving thanks

i woke up this morning with my back feeling like an elephant had slept on it. 5 hours later and i still haven't been able to get it loose. that usually means i'm going to be a bitter angry prick for the rest of the day. seeing that it is Thanksgiving, i'll fit right in.

not that i'll actually go over next door to see the family. it's more likely that some asshole will come over here and interrupt me. i'm not sure what part of not participating in the holidays for over 20 years that people just don't get.

Manchester United pissed away a glorious chance yesterday to advance into the knockout round of the Champions League. it was yet another game where they forgot to be clinical in the final third. a 0-0 draw did them no favors yesterday. they now have to win in Germany or they will most likely not get out of the group stage. that will be a complete fucking failure.

the New York Rangers met their kryptonite last night. Montreal whipped them 5-1. enough said. they next play tomorrow afternoon in Boston.

my sister and i watched a bunch of shows on the DVR that happened while she was in South Africa.

NXT was really good last night. between the best contract signing ever between Finn Balor and Samoa Joe to the match between Eva Marie and Bayley that reminded me of a Dusty Rhodes classic storytelling of the baby face overcoming all the stacked odds... it was an excellent show. add on to that that Sami Zayn is coming back soon and it was certainly 60 minutes i enjoyed.

enjoy some music kids:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Life in Pieces.

the Dayton Flyers play tonight down in Orlando, Florida against Iowa. if Dayton can somehow win that game, they will most likely play Notre Dame in the next game. that would greatly boost their schedule come March. but, they will have their hands full with Iowa.

i have fantasy players in all 3 football games today. if none of them have great games, i'm pretty much fucked come Sunday. i figure knowing my luck, i will be drinking scotch by tonight.

i typed up the 7 poems i wrote earlier this week this morning. i really like all 7 of them. i'm guessing that i will get some submissions out early next week.

i nearly forgot my usual thanksgiving tradition. i'm really getting frustrated with not having my old computer. it finally dawned on mom this morning that she needs to get it fixed. the thing is in her name as is the warranty with geek squad. plus, she still has shit on there for her job.

that's all for me today kids. if you are celebrating Thanksgiving today, enjoy it and try not to kill the crazy cousin or uncle. if you aren't doing that today, enjoy your Thursday.

keep the drinks flowing kids.

be well. be creative. be cool. be quick to send me CASH, panties, hate mail, love letters, broken promises and dirty pennies from heaven.

the odd one over in the corner

one thing i always did when i was a teen, i would take a notepad and pen with me to a mall or anywhere where there was going to be people. i do that today when i take my mother to the doctor. i wrote 7 poems yesterday while she was in her appointment. i figure i will type them up tomorrow between football games and memories of holiday dysfunction. what made me laugh yesterday was i heard a person whispering to another what's he writing there. if there is one thing i have learned over time, it's the enjoyment i get by making people nervous. it's also a good way to make sure you're always alone.

after the doctor yesterday, mom and i went to Menards. this one is way south of the one we normally go to. i could tell immediately by the women that worked there. much more attractive. of course, this is where most of the rich people live, so i'm guessing some of the parts have been cleaned up so to speak. after that we went to dinner. much more of the same. i suppose i will have some more poems to write this weekend.

after that, we got back home to get the trash out. i spent a good amount of time over at my uncle's. i joked that it has become Tuesdays with Morrie. sadly, the talks usually get to politics and then that's when i just let my crazy common sense shine. i personally hope no one votes in the next election. send the whole fucking thing into chaos. we got done with the trash just in time for The Voice.

all my favorites made it through another elimination. i was a little upset that Korin was in the bottom 2 once again. thankfully, she got saved and Evan was eliminated. he did absolutely nothing for me.

Scream Queens was excellent last night. the ending was awesome, even though you could see it coming a mile away.

enjoy some music kids:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be the Saturday Night Live Thanksgiving Special. i will be watching NXT and some other shows on WWE Network.

the New York Rangers play a HUGE early season game with Montreal tonight. it should be a good test to see if the Rangers are really the best team in the east.

Manchester United can advance to the knockout round today if they defeat PSV Eindhoven. considering the game is at Old Trafford, i really like their chances.

i've got the first two loads of laundry going. hopefully i will have much of it done before the United game.

my sister is supposed to come down tonight, or maybe early tomorrow, all depends on her job. 

i did my fantasy football picks this morning. most of my players actually play on Thanksgiving, so that will make it a very interesting holiday this year.

that's all for now. i have some clothes to fold and i have to figure out what i'm having for lunch. i hope everyone has a great day. if you happen to be traveling today, be safe. 

be well. be creative. be cool. be quick to send me CASH, panties, hate mail, love letters, broken promises and dirty pennies from heaven.

trying to enjoy some cold sunshine

since i will be driving mom to her doctor's appointment today, i figured i would crank one of these out a little early. she found a Menards not far from her doctor's office, so i figure we'll go there after her appointment.

i didn't watch much of the football game last night. i figured i would get my pick right, but the players i had going i didn't have much faith in. i was correct on both accounts. i ended up losing 2 of the 3 of my fantasy matches, so now all of my teams are 7-4. i can remember a month ago when they were all 6-1. i ended up going 6-8 on my picks, which was sadly 1 game better than the week before. i really need to get going or this whole season is going to be a fucking failure.

thankfully, the New York Rangers managed to get outplayed for 40 minutes last night but still win 3-0. i am shocked that Nashville can't fucking score. that's 3 straight games they have been shutout. #Nashty is really starting to heat up and The King is arguably the best player in the league right now. and this Rangers team is on the best streak in franchise history. i hope they are playing this way 5 months from now. they next play against Montreal tomorrow night.

The Voice was pretty good last night. three performances really caught my ear; Jeffrey, Madi and Amy. i will be shocked if any of them are eliminated tonight.

Gotham was awesome last night. i can't wait for next week's episode.

Monday Night Raw was not good last night. between the injuries they have right now and a stubborn old fuck running things, they are currently just pissing away some great talent. it's painfully obvious that Vince needs to let the kids start running things.

i picked a scab last night and was sort of surprised by how much i actually bled. nothing quite like stumbling around at 2 in the morning trying to find a fucking band-aid.

enjoy some music kids:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be The Voice and Scream Queens.

i think after Thanksgiving i'm going to send out another round of poems. not sure how much fun i will have doing it on this little keyboard... but i know i have a stack of poems that need to see the light of day. plus, since i don't look through magazines while in waiting rooms, i will probably have a few more poems after this afternoon.

i will probably be on here tomorrow before Manchester United plays PSV in Champions League action. plus, my sister will be coming down here tomorrow as well. she's planning on being here until Sunday, so that should be interesting. i suppose i should get my laundry done before she gets here.

that's all for me kids. as always, check out my Google+ page to see what videos didn't make it here.

i hope everyone has a great day. take it easy and then take it again.

be well. be creative. be cool. be quick to send me CASH, panties, hate mail, love letters, broken promises and dirty pennies from heaven.

another forgettable Sunday

probably the most productive thing i did yesterday was figure out what i was going to get my mother and sister for Christmas. the interview with Sir Alex Ferguson that NBCSN ran yesterday was a decent way to spend 60 minutes. other than that, between fantasy sports and pro wrestling, it was yet another night i'd love to forget.

i somehow managed to lose in fantasy hockey once again. i don't think i have been in last place in a division in hockey EVER. so this is humbling but even more, fucking frustrating. as for fantasy football, it's a really simple rule. if you don't score touchdowns, you don't win. i knew i was in for a shit day when i had two starting running backs leave with injuries in the first quarter of their games yesterday. and my game picks were even worse. this is turning into a month i'd love to fucking forget.

then there was Survivor Series. i had high hopes and sadly, was disappointed for the most part. i had no problem with Roman Reigns facing Dean Ambrose in the finals of the title tournament. when it got closer to the finish and it was painfully obvious neither one was going to turn heel, you could see the Sheamus cash in coming a mile away. the only match that i really enjoyed was Kevin Owens vs. Dean Ambrose. i'm hoping this will be a Monday Night Raw that atones for a shitty ppv, but i doubt it.

thankfully, the Sunday night shows were excellent. Homeland had a great ending that had you on the edge of your seat. The Affair showed what i would probably be like if i was a flavor of the month author. and Last Week Tonight had a great end to the year.

enjoy some music kids:

and now some of this and that:

as is suddenly becoming the normal with this fucking blog, if you'd like to see all the videos i wanted to have in this thing, check out my Google+ page.

it was nice to open an email this morning and see FREE music from Foo Fighters. quite honestly, the EP is really good. go to to get the music.

on the DVR tonight will be The Voice and Gotham.

the New York Rangers play tonight at home against Nashville.

i'm not sure if i'm taking mom to the doctor tomorrow or not. if i am, i will try to get a blog out in the morning. if not, it will be later in the evening.

today has been one of those days where the sun is out but it is cold. and we're slowly finding out that these windows are shit. so much for my computer getting fixed anytime soon.

i hope everyone had a great weekend. if not, there are still plenty of days to drink it all away.

the morning after

we didn't get any snow last night, but it was in the mid 20's when i woke up this morning. i figured i better put on some pants to go out and get the paper this morning. usually i just go out in shorts. i also filled the bird feeders as i figured those clueless creatures will probably be hungry in the cold.

the New York Rangers played a crazy game last night. every time the Rangers got a lead, the Panthers would come right back and score. when the Rangers got a 2 goal lead in the 3rd period, i thought finally, they would put the game away. i was completely wrong as the Panthers scored 2 goals late to send the game into OT. thankfully, Rick Nash finally came alive and got his hat trick in OT for a 5-4 Rangers win. i saved that victory beer for today.

Saturday Night Live was really good last night. Adele was pretty amazing as well.

ROH was great as well. the match between Jay Lethal and Roderick Strong showed exactly why ROH is one of the better wrestling companies on earth.

enjoy some music kids:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Homeland, The Affair and Last Week Tonight. i will be watching Survivor Series on WWE Network.

after the Thursday NFL game, i'm an even bigger underdog in my 3 fantasy matches today than before. so with the New Orleans Saints on a bye this week, i may just end up watching soccer today.

hopefully, i also catch up on some sleep today.

that's all for me kids. i believe breakfast is getting ready to end up in the toilet. good times.

i hope you have a great Sunday.

this was almost going to be a happy story

i was in a pretty good mood until i got home from the grocery store to watch the last few minutes of the Ohio State game. i could tell from listening on the radio, they weren't playing well today. i got to see it with my own eyes the last 7 minutes and they honestly looked like they were spent. that the emotions of senior day and the weight of the winning streak and trying to repeat as national champions finally broke them. hopefully they all understand that they have no chance of doing that now. all they need to focus on is winning next week against that shit school up north and then go collect all the free shit at your bowl game.

thankfully, i have a couple of victory beers coming to me.

but first, let's start back at yesterday.

the drive up to Columbus was crazy. nothing quite like driving 15 MPH over the speed limit and you're still getting passed by other vehicles. the traffic in Columbus is fucking nuts. i suppose since i have never lived in anywhere near a big town, i'm just not used to it. i'm a very aggressive driver and i expect everyone else to be so as well. i learned a long time ago he who hesitates, loses.

it was good to see my sister again. she got me a poetry book from South Africa and a bottle opener that's made from ivory i believe.

the game went completely different than i thought it would. the Blue Jackets got off to a great start, scoring on their first 2 shots. then, their goalie started to stand on his head:
that was a 4-0 win i never saw coming.

we went to Steak 'n Shake after the game and the service was fucking atrocious. but, on the plus side, i should have plenty to write about. the drive home took longer than it did to get up there. so many damn semis and of course, there was a fucking accident because of them. we got off way before we normally do and took the back roads home.

i watched Undateable about as soon as i walked in the door. it was brilliant as always. The Knick was awesome once again. and NJPW was a full hour of AJ Styles vs. Tanahashi.

enjoy some music kids:

and now some of this and that:

so after about 3 hours of sleep, i was up to watch Manchester United. with all their injury concerns, i didn't expect much. Memphis scored early, which made me very happy. Watford drew even late on a penalty kick and thankfully, the same guy that scored on the pk scored an own goal for a smash and grab 2-1 win for United. that moves them to second in the league. imagine what this team could be if everyone would be healthy.

after that, some breakfast, some emails and then i was off to see the Dayton Flyers take on William & Mary. i knew this was going to be a tough game. i didn't know that the officials were also going to be playing against the Flyers today. and sadly, on some plays, it was beyond fucking obvious that someone knew that Dayton was a 8 1/2 point favorite and they were going to make sure they made some money today. Dayton fell behind by double figures in the first half. thankfully, they came out on fire in the second half. it came to the end and Dayton held on for a 69-66 win. i guess the officials got what they wanted.

we got some lunch after the game and then went to the grocery store. what was going to be let's just get the 5 things on our list turned into another shopping trip for next door. i quite frankly don't understand why mom jumps at the chance to help them. i understand it's her brother, but he also has 4 children that can go get them shit as well.

of course, this always turns into mom helping the people who gave birth to the cousin that molested me in my mind. and i always swallow my fucking pride and help. one day the world will not be so fucking lucky.

mom got tired as we were in the store and apparently didn't hear me say don't forget the coupons as she went and paid for their food without giving the cashier the coupons. and since it was already closed out by the time she finally did hear me, they couldn't do anything about it.

this always makes me chuckle as i have never been allowed to make any mistakes in my life. i always figured any mistake i made would cost me even more of my father's love. of course, my mother never did anything to change this thought in my head. so i brutalize myself anytime i make a mistake. that also includes getting poems rejected, fucking up dinner, not hanging a picture exactly level, etc. etc. it more or less has me at the point where i don't try anything because i don't want to fail. while i completely understand this will stop me from ever being great or reaching my potential, i still fall into the same fucking trap.

as you might imagine, the cauldron is boiling boys and girls. and look, here come the holidays...

on the DVR tonight will be Saturday Night Live and ROH.

i've been typing this while watching/listening to the New York Rangers game. hopefully i will have highlights of a victory to share tomorrow, that is if the YouTube feature of this fucking blog is working correctly.

if you ever want to see what could have been in this blog if that YouTube feature was working correctly, check out my Google+ page.

i hope everyone has a great weekend. we might get some light snow tonight. i guess winter is coming and so is my never ending pain.

sometimes they don't walk back through that door

i was pretty sure this blog today was going to be about the New York Rangers losing last night, or how much i liked the television shows last night, or how i have a crazy sports Saturday coming up... but i got some news this morning that completely punched me right in the gut.

Doug and i have exchanged emails and letters for years. he was one of my favorites in the crazy world of poetry i try to live in. he was one of the few that always would send me an email of encouragement or complimenting me about something i wrote. and considering he's going to be part of the next book i'm in, i was really hoping to finally meet him and shoot the shit in person.

so my hope is if you never had the chance to read his work, the next few links and videos will give you a sense of who Doug Draime was. 

do yourself a favor and do a Google search and share Doug's work with the world.

goodbye my friend. rest in peace. you will be greatly missed.

productive asshole day

so i wanted to get some shit done today and honestly, i've done pretty fucking good. first off, i typed up the 9 poems i had written in the last week or so. i really, really like a few of them. i'm kind of holding off on doing submissions until my computer gets fixed or i get a new one. i'm thinking that will happen sometime before i die. i also made a trip to the bank today. i had a little money i needed to deposit, plus it fills my need to people watch.

American Horror Story was fucking great last night. i absolutely love this show. You're The Worst was excellent as well. they are doing a spot on job of portraying depression. both shows come back in two weeks (damn Thanksgiving).

NXT was really good last night. Jason Jordan and Chad Gable are quickly becoming one of my favorite tag teams. and i can't wait to see what the show will do over in England.

enjoy some music kids:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be The Big Bang Theory, Life in Pieces and the holiday Lip Sync Battle.

the New York Rangers take on Tampa tonight down in Florida. i'm hoping the boys can keep the winning streak going tonight.

i do have some fantasy players going tonight for the football game. i will probably end up watching some of it. but honestly, Jaguars vs. Titans doesn't do much for me.

i did happen to listen to Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast today with Bob Backlund. talk about feeling old.

i think mom and i might have to make a run to Menards tonight for next door. i am happy that my uncle got through the first day of chemo and never got sick or really felt bad. he called my mother this morning to tell her about his shit. and they wonder why i'm the way i am. genetics motherfucker. sad but true.

if i do a blog tomorrow it will be early as mom and i will be going to Columbus to see my sister and go to a hockey game. the Blue Jackets are playing better now. and i'll have 4 players in the game on my fantasy team, so i'll be interested. plus, it will be nice to see my sister again. i'm sure she'll have some photos of South Africa to share.

that's all for me kids. i hope this finds everyone enjoying a strong beverage or pleasuring themselves to something weird.

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...

when the rain feels like laying on a bed of nails

i told my mother today the topic was going to be pain. the shitty feeling i had yesterday that cut this blog short had to have been the fucking cold front that moved through today. i was so drained last night that i think i fell asleep before midnight. i didn't even bother to turn the lights out in the house. and of course, the rain came while the handymen that mom hired were here today. mom doesn't trust me on a ladder, mostly because if i fall she has no prayer of helping me back up. and my back is so damn bad now that if i do fall, i will probably break something. so, the two guys she hired hung up just about everything we needed to have hung. that includes all my sports shit and my bar sign, so i'm ready for business i suppose. i told mom when she dies i'm turning the living room into a pool hall. all i've wanted since i was 18 was a damn pool table in a house i live in. 21 years later and i'm still trying to figure out how to do it. if i ever get the pool table, all i would need is a good stereo and quite frankly, i may never be on the internet ever again. i could play pool for days on end and never think about another fucking thing. maybe that's why i don't have one.

i was not surprised when the only black person on The Voice last night got eliminated. that tends to be how the show has gone for the last few seasons. i think i have at least 1 person on each team i think can win. Emily Ann on Blake's team. Madi on Pharrell's team. Jeffrey on Gwen's team. and Amy and Jordan on Adam's team. anyone outside of those 5 winning it and i will be shocked beyond belief.

i didn't watch much of the USA vs. TNT yesterday. i was hoping for at least a point and they got that with a 0-0 draw. people who did watch it said it was fucking boring. so, i suppose i missed nothing.

i did watch a good portion of college basketball last night. i know Dayton beat a shitty Alabama team, but honestly, not one fucking person talking about it on the station it aired on. i suppose when Dayton makes another deep run in March, the fuckers at ESPN will be surprised. honestly, if i could never watch ESPN again but still get all the sports i love, i'd sign up for that in a second.

The Muppets were very funny last night. i would love to have seen what Scooter would have done if the show was on HBO or something. Scream Queens was good as well. i'm very interested to see what happens next week.

i got some FREE music on NoiseTrade today from one of my favorite bands. i'll put the link below.

enjoy some music kids:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be American Horror Story and You're The Worst. i'll be watching NXT on WWE Network and probably some hockey as well tonight.

checkout this book just out by Ally Malinenko:
go to for more info.

i'm not sure if i'm going to like the new Google+ or not.

my uncle had his first round of chemo today. he did surprisingly well (so far). hopefully that continues as he gets on a schedule.

not sure when i'll be on here tomorrow. i've got podcasts to listen to, poems to type up and god knows what else to do. i suppose i should get started thinking about what i'm getting people for Christmas. if you'd like to be on my list to get something (poems, stickers, filth) for the holidays, email me and i'll gladly send you something.

that's all for today. i hope it didn't rain all fucking day where you are.

be well. be creative. be cool. be quick to send me CASH, panties, hate mail, love letters, broken promises and dirty pennies from heaven.

take them behind the woodshed

it was fun to watch Dayton whip the shit out of Alabama today. even better, it was in front of a national audience on ESPN. i was thrilled that Dayton once again showed they own the SEC in basketball. 80-48 and honestly, it wasn't that close.

i didn't watch much of the Monday Night Football game last night. i knew just from the score that i was going to be fucked. i ended up losing all 3 of my fantasy football matches. plus, i only went 5-9 on picks this week. not fucking good at all.

Monday Night Raw could have been great last night. could. sadly, it wasn't. Legends with JBL on WWE Network was really good though. Gotham was spectacular last night. and while The Voice had a few really good performances, only one forced me to but the song on iTunes. since i'm not able to put the video in the blog for some fucking reason, you'll see the song listed in the music section.

enjoy some music kids (hopefully):

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be The Voice, Scream Queens and The Muppets.

for some reason, i'm starting to feel light headed and sweating. i can only hope this is a sign of impending death. just in case it is, that's all for me today kids.

i'll be on here sometime tomorrow. hopefully.

be well. be creative. be cool. be quick to send me CASH, panties, hate mail, love letters, broken promises and dirty pennies from heaven.

sometimes the poems just flow like a river

i just got done writing 5 more poems. what i've been trying here lately is when i have time to kill, just grab a notebook and start writing. nothing really has to be on my mind. just put on some music and let whatever flow. the first poem of course was about Paris. i'm really interested to see where the war on terror goes from here; with France being dragged into it and now the group Anonymous has declared war on ISIS as well. as a poet, these are very interesting times my friend.

the New Orleans Saints defense last year was horrific. somehow, they have managed to get worse this season. the game with the Redskins yesterday was actually tied at 14 at one point. when you see the final score of 47-14, you would never know the Saints were actually in the game. thank fucking god, they are supposedly firing the defensive coordinator today. that should have happened last season. good thing is, there's only one direction to go from here. and that's up. thankfully, they are on a bye this coming week.

the New York Rangers extended their winning streak last night to 9 with a 4-3 win over the Maple Leafs. you know things are going well when shit like this happens:
and my favorite troll was just named the #2 star for the week:
even though his performance killed me last night in fantasy hockey. oh well. i'll take the Rangers win and enjoy the victory beer.

the Sunday night shows were excellent last night. Homeland had another very interesting ending. The Affair showed why i haven't written a novel yet. it's not that i'm scared of success, it's all the bullshit that comes with it i could do without. and once again, Last Week Tonight hit one out of the park:

enjoy some music kids:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be The Voice and Gotham. i'll be flipping between Monday Night Football and Monday Night Raw. plus i believe it is Undertaker week on WWE Network.

i'm not really looking forward to my doctor's appointment today. i figure he'll probably make me go to physical therapy which will be interesting to figure out how i'm going to do that without a vehicle. plus, i don't want to leave mom alone that much as she is getting much more prone to falling. but, i also know my pain tolerance isn't going to stay high forever. good times.

i'll be on here tomorrow after the Dayton Flyers play against Alabama. the game is at 1 PM. it's part of the ESPN 24 hour college basketball kickoff. mom isn't going as the chemo class for my uncle is that morning. so, i will be at the game by myself. that should be interesting. whenever i'm in public alone i usually become the creepy guy off to the side just observing everyone. it's a great tool for a writer. it's horrible if you want to fit in. thank fucking god i never wanted that.

i hope everyone had a great weekend. wish me well, i think i'm going to need it. i'm off to the shower and/or take a giant shit. hopefully one happens before the other. i'll let you decide the order.

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...
