another legend says goodbye

there was only a few people in my life that truly caught my brain, my soul, my essence with their talent. sadly, now all of them are dead. when i got the news last night that Leonard Cohen had died, i was devastated. i knew he was near his death, but i certainly wasn't expecting it so soon after he released his last album. his voice has been the narrator of my dreams and nightmares since i was in high school. i would devour his music, his poetry, anything the man was associated with as i was growing up. i truly believe Leonard Cohen shaped my wisdom and poetry as much as Bukowski and Burroughs did. for that, i will forever be in debt to you. thank you for everything. you gave more than this world ever deserved. rest in peace and safe travels.

The Big Bang Theory was very funny last night.

Life in Pieces was fucking hilarious last night. i wonder if i should have my ashes turned into jewelry.

the season finale of Better Things was great. i have high hopes for next season of this show.

i had the misfortune of watching the Sacramento Kings lose to the fucking Lakers last night while i was icing down my back. talk about fucking torture.

enjoy some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, 2 episodes of NJPW, a couple of shows on Butch Walker on DIRECTV and i haven't decided if i'm going to record the soccer game tonight or not.

the USA takes on Mexico tonight in World Cup Qualifying. they are playing in Columbus, where Mexico absolutely hates to play. hopefully the boys get a big win tonight.

i'll be at the home opener of the Dayton Flyers tonight. they are playing against Austin Peay. Dayton will celebrate Big Steve tonight before the game. it's still a bit of a shock to realize he's dead. it will take some getting used to watching the team without him out there. i'm really hoping Dayton plays great tonight with urgency and purpose. they have what it takes to make this a special season.

i have no clue when i'll be on here tomorrow. i hope everyone has a great weekend.

happy Veterans Day to everyone that has served this country. thank you for your service.

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...
