taking hate and making poetry

i was busy watching soccer yesterday when i heard the news that the number of dead in the mass shooting in Orlando had gone up to 50. for a good portion of yesterday i was a zombie watching the news and letting the thoughts gather in my head. hypocrisy is easy to write about when it runs so fucking rampant in this country. i've never heard a good argument why you need an assault rifle to hunt. and i will laugh at everyone that forgets the shooter was born in this country. and if you're going to deport people based on religion, you explain to me how that doesn't sound like Germany in the late 1930's. i saw this photo last night and decided to make it my profile picture:

sure, it's a bit naive but it's a wonderful thought. the 3 poems i wrote last night were about the shooting. i did like one ending i had where i hope the shooter's son is gay and realizes what a fuck up his father was. i typed the poems up this afternoon. i have no clue when or if i will send them out one day.

the Copa America was crazy last night. Ecuador destroyed Haiti 4-0 and will play the USA in the quarterfinals. Peru upset Brazil 1-0 with a goal that should not have counted. it was clearly a hand ball and will undoubtedly bring forth video replay for goals in soccer one day. that disputed goal knocked Brazil out of the tournament. Peru will play Colombia.

the Copa America games tonight are Mexico vs. Venezuela and Uruguay vs. Jamaica.

the Euro 2016 tournament isn't as crazy but is still entertaining. here are the scored from yesterday:
Croatia 1 Turkey 0, Poland 1 Northern Ireland 0, Germany 2 Ukraine 0. i got up this morning in time to watch Spain vs. Czech Republic. i wanted to see how David de Gea would play for Spain. it was a pretty boring game and de Gea was good when called upon. Spain won late 1-0. Ireland and Sweden played to a 1-1 draw in a pretty entertaining game. but the game coming up next should be great, Italy vs. Belgium.

the Old Timer's Day festivities yesterday were good. it was nice to see some of the old Yankees from the past. plus, the way Hideki Matsui hit that home run in the game, i'm surprised the Yankees didn't sign him today. as for the regular game, the Yankees didn't muster much offense and lost 4-1. thankfully, they are off today. i believe they start a series in Colorado tomorrow night.

i did watch some of the Tony Awards last night. i thought the opening was really good.

the Sunday night shows were excellent last night. the series finale of House of Lies was pretty interesting. not so much funny but it was beautiful to watch given that it was filmed in Cuba. i can only imagine what that country will look like when the embargo gets lifted one day. Veep was hilarious. Silicon Valley was really good. Penny Dreadful was so fucking amazing last night. the ending literally had me getting out of my bed saying holy shit. i can't wait for the 2 hour season finale next week. Last Week Tonight was brilliant as always:

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

nothing on the DVR tonight so i'll be flipping between soccer, the NBA Finals and Monday Night Raw.

i am interested to see if Draymond Green being suspended will actually mean anything in Game 5 of the NBA Finals tonight.

the Penguins won the Stanley Cup last night. i will only say congrats to Carl Hagelin. he's one of my favorite New York Rangers. i'm really happy for him. as for the rest of the team, they can go fuck themselves.

i did listen to the latest Sam & Cathy podcast this morning. you can find that by going here:

i really didn't go outside at all today. i can't wait to go on vacation in July in Cleveland. 2 of those days will mostly be outside as well. i don't want rain, but i wouldn't mind a cool fucking breeze while i'm there.

that's all for me kids. i hope everyone had a great weekend. do the entire world a favor, please stop teaching your children to hate. or, better yet, quit having fucking 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.

peace and chicken grease...
