i heard back from Chiron Review on the poems i sent on my birthday. all 3 got rejected. those are 3 of my strongest, so either i think they are much better than other people do, or i have slipped into a rut. might be time to switch back to wine for the next few months.
the New York Rangers played like shit yesterday. i guess asking for 3 wins in a row is just too much to ask for. they better snap out of it quick as they play Buffalo tonight.
thankfully, the Dayton Flyers took care of business yesterday at Fordham. they never trailed in the game, even though they tried to make it close near the end. eventually, Dayton put the game away and actually beat the spread once again. Dayton won 64-50.
i enjoyed The X-Files last night. of course, i had to watch most of the show on the internet this morning as the football game took up much of what i recorded on the DVR. that's my mistake for not thinking the game was going to run long. it should be interesting to see what happens tonight.
Shameless was really good. Billions was good, but not as good as the pilot was. hopefully it bounces back next week.
the Royal Rumble was good. i was pissy for most of it though as my internet was cutting in and out throughout the show. i really enjoyed what i saw of Kevin Owens vs. Dean Ambrose. and i truly marked out like a child when i saw AJ Styles come out. that's truly one of those things i NEVER thought i would see in a WWE ring. not sure what i think about HHH winning the Rumble and becoming the new champ. i will hold back my opinion to see what happens on the road to WrestleMania. if he manages to make a new star out someone by April, then it's all worth it. if this becomes him burying people again, then i'll be bitching and moaning for the rest of the year. of course, i know what HHH thinks of my opinion:
enjoy some music kids:
and now some of this and that:
on the DVR tonight will be The X-Files. i will spend most of the night flipping between Monday Night Raw and the New York Rangers game vs. Buffalo.
plus, i think there is a basketball game tonight that is supposed to be good. (Spurs vs. Warriors)
i got half of the Super Bowl matchup correct. neither game really shocked me. i think Carolina will win the Super Bowl, though i wouldn't mind Denver winning if that means Peyton Manning retires.
i've been listening to the FREE Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band concert they put out today as a gift for having to cancel some shows because of the blizzard. i highly recommend you getting this. 3 hours of great music for FREE. it's only available for 48 hours by the way.
i have to get some blood work done before i go back to the doctor on February 8th. i figure i will get that done later in the week. i'm so looking forward to all the shit i have to do now that i am 40. good times.
i hope everyone had a great Sunday. hopefully it has stopped snowing wherever 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.
peace and chicken grease...
