the trade deadline

seeing that the New York Yankees haven't been sellers at the trade deadline since 1989, most fans are probably perplexed that the Yankees are trading off players. but, as for someone who has been a fan since 1982, i am fucking thrilled. they traded Carlos Beltran today to Texas for 3 pitching prospects, including one who was the 4th overall pick last year in the draft. they also traded Ivan Nova to Pittsburgh for 2 players to be named later. i'm amazed they got more than a bag of baseballs for him. overall, the Yankees completely rebuilt their farm system in a week. BRILLIANT. hopefully they will quickly realize this season doesn't mean shit and start calling up some of the kids from AAA to play NOW. that way they can be seasoned by the time the kids down in A and AA are ready to come up. and then you can break out the cash again when the free agent class of 2018 arrives. and then hopefully another dynasty will be born. it all looks good on paper. if only they played the damn games on paper.

the Yankees got swept yesterday by losing 5-3 in Tampa. tonight starts the Subway Series against the Mets. i couldn't care less.

Big Brother was pretty good last night.

The Night Of was excellent last night. i really love this show. Ballers was funny. Vice Principals was fucking hilarious. Power was really good last night. i can see where they are going this season, but i can't wait to see how they do it. Ray Donovan was really good with a bit of a surprising ending. Roadies was good as well. finally, Last Week Tonight was brilliant as always:

i don't think i missed much by not going with my sister yesterday to our aunt's house. she sent mom some old pics that she got, all from stuff that i already remember. there is a big part of me that wishes i had the ability to not remember my childhood like my sister. it would make the writing more difficult at times but it certainly would remove nearly 40 years of weight off of me.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be nothing. i'll be watching Monday Night Raw for most of the evening.

i did finally go out and feed the birds today. right before i went out, i saw this stray cat that's in our little neighborhood, walking around my uncle's house with a bird in its mouth. i laughed and remembered the food chain like i used to do at the farm. feed the birds for the cats, the cats for the coyotes which will eventually be killed by humans.

it was so fucking humid this afternoon. if the temperature was in the mid 80's, the humidity was in the mid 90% range. and i was wearing black. good times.

i hope everyone had a great weekend. can you believe the Olympics are starting soon? do you even care? that's probably the better question.

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...
