the Monday blues

i woke up this morning when the phone rang at 8:30 AM. i had been asleep for almost 4 hours. i put on my glasses and looked at the caller i.d. it was the Vietnam Vets. as i walked to the bathroom to take a piss, i muttered that it was times like these that you wish your father would have actually died in the war like he wanted to. welcome to my Monday morning.

the New York Rangers lost to Florida in a shootout last night, 3-2. more importantly, they lost Mika Zibanejad to a broken leg for the next 6 to 8 weeks. fuck, 2 losses in a row and now the bad luck comes back around. oh goody, they play Pittsburgh tonight. fuck me runnin'.

Survivor Series last night was way better than i thought it was going to be. all the matches were interesting and entertaining, a rarity for the WWE anymore. i was very pleased right up until the main event. when Goldberg beat Brock Lesnar in 84 seconds, i was shocked. and that thrilled me as i have been watching wrestling for more than 35 years. the fact that i was shocked means "they" did a good job. i'm very interested to see what happens tonight on Monday Night Raw.

Westworld was very good last night.

Divorce hit a little close to home last night. the debt talk reminded me so much of my father.

Insecure was close to perfect last night. i love shows that are comedies but remember to never sugarcoat the drama.

Shameless was excellent last night.

The Affair was compelling start to holy shit finish last night. i can't wait for another crazy fucking season.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

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

i would watch some of the Monday Night Football game but both of my fantasy teams shit the bed yesterday.

a ray of sunshine came through today when USA Soccer relieved Jurgen Klinsmann of his duties. i'm surprised they waited this long to do it. everything i'm hearing is that Bruce Arena will be the next coach. i'm hoping it's a temporary thing, unless of course he guides the team into the World Cup. i'd love to see someone younger get the job and really excite not only the players, but the nation. but the first job of whomever gets the position will be to fix what Jurgen broke. and that is the belief of the players that they are good enough to compete at this level. i know for a fact that Bruce Arena is good at that.

i've actually taken some time in the last 2 days to figure out a few ideas on what to get my mother and sister for Christmas. if any of you would like to be on my Christmas card/goodies list, be sure to send me your mailing addresses so i can add you to the list. my email is

and if you'd like to get me something for the holidays, the link to my wish list is on the right hand side of this blog.

i hope everyone had a great weekend.

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...
