the damn rain can leave now...

i think we've had nearly 2 inches of rain in the last couple of days. i suppose the grass should have been cut before the rain, but oh well. my arthritis has been fucking killing me today. nothing quite like trying to run a vacuum cleaner and your left leg decides to just quit working. my best guess is i have scar tissue wrapped around nerves and the arthritis is the catalyst for evil. i'm planning on being the stubborn fucker and just wait to my next doctor's appointment to say something about it. damn good thing my pain tolerance hasn't left me.

i wrote 5 poems this morning. it's always great to have words spilling out of you with the morning piss. i typed them up later in the morning and i really like them. i might get a wild hair up my ass and send some more poems out in the next few days.

the New York Yankees won 2-1 last night over the Twins. it certainly did have the feel of a playoff game. hopefully the Yankees can win again tonight.

i did watch a good portion of the New York Rangers first preseason game last night against the Islanders. and i gladly had a victory drink when the Rangers won 1-0 in OT.

I Hart Food was really good last night.

The Vietnam War last night was excellent. part 2 dealt with 1961-1963. i think the best part of this so far is the footage from Vietnam that has never been seen before. i can't wait for part 3 tonight.

Monday Night Raw was pretty good last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, Smackdown, The Jim Jefferies Show, American Horror Story and The Vietnam War. i'll watch 205 Live sometime tonight on WWE Network.

i did make a nice deposit today at the bank. just my luck, the woman i usually flirt with wasn't working.

i'm going to try to be on here tomorrow before the Yankees play in the afternoon. if not, it will be after Manchester United plays in the League Cup.

i have trash to go pick up now. i've been in my room for a few hours, so hopefully the damn rain has stopped.

today certainly wasn't the best day for a major earthquake in Mexico.

afternoon thunderstorms...

nothing like a thunderstorm out of nowhere to just stop me in my tracks. fucking arthritis. this should be a fun one type up.

yesterday was not a good one for me.

the New York Yankees lost to Baltimore yesterday 6-4. they pissed away a chance for a sweep and to pick up a game on Boston. they are still 3 games out in the division. the Yankees start a series with the Twins tonight. Minnesota is right behind the Yankees in the wild card standings. so, it could be a playoff preview.

the New Orleans Saints lost to New England yesterday 36-20. and honestly, it never felt that close. the defense was horrific yesterday as Tom Brady shredded them to pieces. and when your defense can't stop anyone, it doesn't matter how good the offense is.

i was saddened to hear of the death of  Bobby "The Brain" Heenan yesterday. he was definitely one of the reasons i absolutely loved wrestling as a child.

thankfully, Manchester United was the exception to everything yesterday. they defeated Everton 4-0. i thought it was kind of funny that United scored 3 of those goals after Wayne Rooney came out of the game for Everton.

The Vietnam War last night on PBS was very good. this is a topic that i am highly interested in, given that my father would never tell me anything about his time in the war. i really liked in part 1 that they went all the way back to the 1850's to set up why everything happened a century later. i'm sure part 2 will be just as good tonight.

Ballers was really good last night. the season finale next week should be really good as well.

Ray Donovan was pretty good last night.

Episodes was pretty funny last night.

The Deuce was excellent last night.

Vice Principals was fucking hilarious last night.

the series finale of The Strain last night was damn near perfect. the fight scenes were amazing and the twist i didn't see coming that set up the last few scenes was great. probably one of my favorite shows that i never expected to like.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, I Hart Food and The Vietnam War. i'll be watching Monday Night Raw for most of the evening.

i'll probably be on here tomorrow sometime after a trip to the bank.

i hope everyone had a great weekend. i now have dishes to do, toilets to clean and a house to vacuum. good times.

the sweet taste of victory

broke out the Jagermeister last night, so you know i was feeling good.

Ohio State finally got off to a hot start yesterday against Army. of course, that didn't last as they basically did nothing for the entire 2nd quarter. thankfully, the halftime adjustments worked and Ohio State went on to win 38-7.

the New York Yankees whipped Baltimore yesterday, 9-3. they will go for the sweep of the Orioles this afternoon.

i never got to see Prince live in concert before he died. that's why i made sure to record Prince: Sign O' the Times last night. i remember when that came out in 1987. i was probably too young to really like those songs at the time, but i do recall Sheena Easton being my "dream" woman around that time. i watched that last night and truly felt just how old i am now.

ROH was excellent last night.

the college football games didn't disappoint last night either.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Ballers, Ray Donovan, Episodes, The Deuce, Vice Principals, The Vietnam War and the series finale of The Strain.

Manchester United takes on Everton here in a few minutes. it's going to be really weird seeing Wayne Rooney in blue.

the New Orleans Saints take on New England today. either it's going to be a shootout or it's going to be one of those days where i'm really happy i rolled over a victory drink from yesterday to today.

i might watch some of the Emmy Awards tonight. i figure Stephen Colbert will have some funny moments.

i hope everyone had a great Saturday. hopefully, your Sunday will be even better.

when the dreams begin to bore you...

i wrote 5 poems last night. i typed them up shortly after and really think they are good. i'm hoping to have another little writing outburst this weekend. if that happens, i'll probably have another round of submissions ready in a week or so.

i was really sad to see Harry Dean Stanton died yesterday. he was absolutely one of my favorite humans.

the New York Yankees got some great pitching last night and defeated Baltimore 8-2. they will go for the series win this afternoon.

VICE was sort of heartbreaking last night. i enjoy pornography but child pornography absolutely disgusts me. i do believe that is one of the great things AI could do; bust these fuckers that enjoy child porn.

NJPW was excellent last night.

Treehouse Masters was really good last night.

Room 104 was really fucking weird last night.

Big Brother was mostly a clip show of the season last night. and they finally talked about Christmas having feelings for Paul.

Real Time with Bill Maher was fucking hilarious last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be ROH and Prince: Sign O' the Times.

i'll spend most of the day watching college football. i'm really hoping Ohio State gets its act together today and beats Army convincingly.

my sister is down here today i believe. not sure how long she's at the house as i think she has a baby shower or a wedding or some fucking thing to go to today.

it's supposed to feel like summer here this weekend. i believe today is supposed to get up to the low 80's. basically all that means to me is mom will feel like shit because of what the heat does with her Meniere's Disease.

i will probably be on here tomorrow before Manchester United takes on Everton.

i hope everyone has a great Saturday. call if you need bail money.

yeah, i wear sweatpants in public, get over it...

i gave up on life many moons ago. if you see me wearing something other than sweatpants and a t-shirt in public, apathy forgot to wake up with me that day. it's a rare occasion. you should try to get a picture, sort of like a Big Foot sighting.

the grocery store was uneventful today. they didn't have everything i wanted and i didn't eat lunch before going. amazingly, i kept the grocery bill under $100. now my liquor bill was nearly $50 and gas was a little over $20. all in all, not bad.

while i was putting some artwork in frames last night, i had the last frame i was using break on me. nothing like glass flying all over the fucking place. i thought i got it all but later on that night, i saw something while i was laying in bed. i went to touch it and next thing i know, my fucking thumb was sliced open. fuck me runnin'. needless to say, i need another 11 x 14 frame.

the New York Yankees scored early and often last night, whipping Baltimore 13-5. hopefully they can do the same thing tonight.

Vice News Tonight had another great week of shows.

Big Brother went how i expected last night. Kevin was evicted by Christmas. Paul won the first part of the HOH last night. that's what's going to be shown on the show tonight. i hope the jury house is truly planning on screwing Paul in the end, that would be some great television.

Better Things was really good last night.

Fuck, That's Delicious Classics was excellent last night.

The Chris Gethard Show last night was fucking brilliant. John Oliver was the guest and the show had me laughing the entire 60 minutes.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be VICE, Big Brother, NJPW, Real Time with Bill Maher, Room 104 and Treehouse Masters.

i suppose the plan is for me to be back on here in the morning tomorrow. i figure i would like to do a little writing tonight. so, if that doesn't keep me up all damn night, i will probably crank out another one of these in the morning.

the sun actually did make an appearance today. that felt nice. hopefully it stays that way all weekend.

it sickens me to wake up each morning and see what fucking chaos has happened around the world as i tried to pretend to sleep. maybe one day people will realize if you would like to have an open society, you need to treat everyone with dignity and respect; educate everyone the same and eliminate poverty. i'm pretty fucking sure you'd stop about 90% of all violence if that ever happened. but what do i know. i'm just some unemployed poet living with his mother.

i hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. take it easy and then take it again.

the sun will come back someday i guess

today was yet another cloudy, rainy, gloomy day. perfect for a poet, if that poet wasn't riddled with arthritis.

i did send out 27 poems today; 6 to ZYX, 5 each to Otoliths, Shot Glass Journal and Synchronized Chaos, 3 each to The Beatnik Cowboy and Bluepepper. when i hear back from these places (i've already heard back good news from Synchronized Chaos) i will post the verdicts.

the New York Yankees held on for a 3-2 victory yesterday over Tampa. the Yankees start a series tonight at home against Baltimore. they are 3 1/2 games behind Boston in the division.

Mr. Mercedes was excellent last night.

Big Brother went as i expected last night. Alex was evicted. Paul is the new HOH. i believe he also won the POV, so Christmas will evict the next house guest. that will probably be Kevin. Paul has already said he wants to take Josh to the final 2. hopefully that plan blows up in his face.

You're the Worst was great last night.

Total Bellas was pretty damn funny last night.

Lucha Underground was celebrating its 100th episode last night. i would say about 95 out of the 100 have been excellent.

NXT was really good last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, Big Brother, The Chris Gethard Show, Better Things and Fuck, That's Delicious Classics.

i did listen to the latest Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast today. you can find that by going here:
http://notsam.com/wrestlingpodcast/2017/9/14/wrestling-podcast-151-cfo

i made a little trip over to Meijer today after i went to the post office. i needed some picture frames (on sale) and a few odds and ends and mom was low on Diet Coke (on sale). so, i figure i would get that today while i was out. i know how the drug fiends get when they are going without.

i need to go to the grocery store tomorrow, so i will probably be on here after that.

i believe the fucking sun is supposed to come out tomorrow. it would be nice if the weekend was at least fucking bearable here.

until tomorrow my friends.

yet another rainy day

i fell asleep around 3 last night. it was 4:24 when i first saw the clock. great. i knew it was fucking raining. i think i ended up with around 4 hours of sleep total. mom had an appointment with the eye doctor this morning. everything looked good. her vision has improved greatly in her right eye. hopefully the left eye will do the same thing in 2 weeks.

the New York Yankees only got 3 damn hits last night. Sonny Gray pitched a complete game, but he gave 2 solo homers and lost 2-1. great. Boston won last night so the Yankees are now 4 games back. they might want to win the division if they would like to avoid possibly playing Cleveland in the playoffs. the Yankees finish off this series with Tampa this afternoon. hopefully they will get a victory.

American Horror Story was fucking great last night.

Smackdown was excellent last night. a title change and what a lovely beatdown of Mr. McMahon by Kevin Owens. i think that Hell in a Cell match with Shane just got ramped up a few notches.

the final of the Mae Young Classic was very good last night. i'm very happy they had Kairi Sane win. she will get a chance at the NXT women's title at the next NXT Takeover event.

205 Live was really good last night. Breezango made a guest appearance to arrest Drew Gulak for fashion crimes. and i do love a damn good heel turn. hello Jack Gallagher.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, Lucha Underground, Mr. Mercedes, Big Brother, You're the Worst and Total Bellas. i'll watch NXT sometime tonight on WWE Network.

i figure i'll spend this afternoon flipping between baseball and the Champions League while procrastinating about the dishes piling up in the sink.

i'm hoping i'll feel good enough tomorrow to send out some poems.

until then boys and girls, i wish you a fond farewell.

hurry up and wait

when the phone rang this morning, i kind of was fearing they were going to move mom's eye surgery further back in the day. it was the complete opposite. i guess everything was running faster than normal so they wanted to know if she wanted to come in sooner. i still had breakfast to eat and a shower to take. joy. we got there in about a hour or so. mom was done with her surgery by the original time we were supposed to be there. that certainly cleared up the afternoon for me. of course, the remnants of hurricane Irma showed up today.

the New York Yankees won last night over Tampa 5-1. they are now 3 games behind Boston in the division. hopefully they can get another win tonight.

Monday Night Raw was pretty good last night.

I Hart Food was pretty good as well last night.

the New Orleans Saints couldn't find a rhythm in the red zone last night and had to settle for field goals. you don't win games in the NFL with field goals when your defense still fucking sucks. i'm not sure they stopped the Vikings at all when it mattered. fucking frustration, hello. the Saints lost 29-19. they next play at home against New England. oh great.

checking the ego for once

first off, may we never forget...

i did a little poetry work today. i know where my next 27 poems are going to go. plus, i thinned out my unpublished file and moved some (nearly half) poems to the archives. this should allow me to better know the poems i'm selecting from. plus, if i ever do get a little fame, there's that unpublished collection waiting in the wings. but, when i noticed how thick the file was, that's certainly a good way to punch the ego right in the face.

the New York Yankees scored early and often yesterday to defeat Texas 16-7. Aaron Judge crushed 2 home runs as did Gary Sanchez. and they won on a day Boston lost. the Yankees start a series tonight against Tampa in the Mets stadium in Queens. hopefully the Yankees can win again tonight.

Big Brother was good last night. i'm still hoping they somehow fuck over Paul in the end. Alex will be the next to go.

Ballers was pretty good last night.

the season finale of Insecure was excellent.

Last Week Tonight was hilarious as usual last night.

The Strain was fucking great last night. the series finale next week should be great.

Ray Donovan was pretty good last night.

Episodes was pretty funny last night.

The Deuce was absolutely great last night. i can tell i'm really going to enjoy this show.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight and I Hart Food. i'll be watching Monday Night Raw for at least some of the night.

i'll be watching the New Orleans Saints play at Minnesota for most of the evening. i'm hoping the Saints can get a victory to start the season.

and through anger comes a diamond...

Ohio State pissed me off so much that i didn't even bother to watch the whole game. i walked away, poured myself a tall glass of Jack Daniels and Coke, went to my room, turned on some music and just started to write. and write. and write some more. by the end, i just figured to finish off the damn notebook. 12 poems in all. i'll type them up this afternoon while the football games are on. i have no rooting interest with the games today.

Ohio State got their asses whipped by Oklahoma last night, 31-16. if Ohio State wouldn't have caused some turnovers in the first half, Oklahoma would have hung 50 on them last night. judging from the first 2 games, the Buckeyes are probably the 3rd or 4th best team in the Big Ten right now. if they don't improve quickly, it's going to be a long season.

Manchester United was held to a 2-2 draw yesterday at Stoke City. they are still in first place, but only by goal differential now. they play again on Tuesday in the Champions League. i'll miss most of that since the game is on at the same time as mom's cataract surgery on her left eye.

the lone bright spot yesterday was the New York Yankees. they got some great pitching yesterday and scored a few runs late to beat Texas 3-1. hopefully they will win the series this afternoon.

ROH was excellent last night. i could watch The Young Bucks wrestle air for the next 20 years and be entertained.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Big Brother, Ballers, Insecure, Last Week Tonight, The Strain, Ray Donovan and Episodes.

i figure after i type up those poems, i'll flip around all the NFL games. i still have the Sunday Ticket package even though i'm no longer playing fantasy football. since mom's team is the Jets and mine is the Saints, it's the only way we could see every game that isn't on national television.

i'll be on here tomorrow in the afternoon most likely. i know i have to make a trip to the grocery store tomorrow as i just realized this morning i was getting low on my prescriptions. that's my last refill until my next visit to the doctor in October.

i hope everyone had a great Saturday. i hope your Sunday will be even better. for those of you that didn't try to flee the hurricane, why the fuck are you reading this? be safe and hopefully the flooding won't be catastrophic.

it certainly made for an interesting drive home...

i want to believe my sister doesn't hate me. like, really, really believe it. but, she has a way of doing things sometimes that cuts me right to my damn soul. and as much as i want to believe she's not doing this consciously, her subconscious must have it out for me. her birthday party was pretty good last night. i saw people i hadn't seen in many years. i saw family from my dad's side that i hadn't seen in over a quarter of a century. mom didn't know everybody, so she wanted my sister to introduce them. my sister made it a point to make a spectacle out of it, which i didn't mind. she went around the room and introduced everyone, even the people mom already knew. but, of course, she forgot one person. you might imagine where this is going and you would be correct. part of this, i blame on myself. as my sister got down from introducing everyone minus a poet that is closely related to her, i didn't say anything. this is the part of me i hate more than anything. i simply take it. i take every ounce of shit i'm dealt in this world because a part of me has always felt it's what is deserved. between being molested and my father never loving me,(plus a trillion other examples) part of me feels like being shit on is simply my function in life. that's why i always laughed when people thought i was joking when i said i write poetry so i don't have to kill people. the drive home was pretty damn quick. i was pretty fucking pissed. i waited to cool down a bit before i mentioned something to mom about it. mom was upset because she of course never thought anything about it until i said something. and i'm not trying to be the asshole to make it always about me. my sister hates the fact that i don't have a job and don't make enough money to take care of myself, let alone anyone else. i actually wonder if she ever thought about if i was working and couldn't take care of mom, what would happen then? she moved away so she wouldn't have to worry about it. yet i get shit on for accepting the responsibility. my sister's excuse for not mentioning me was that everyone already knew me. i know that's not true, but just like her father, she's never at fault. i can't imagine the next 40 years of our lives being much different.

VICE was very interesting last night.

NJPW was excellent last night.

Treehouse Masters was really good last night.

Room 104 was pretty damn funny last night.

Real Time with Bill Maher was fucking hilarious last night.

the New York Yankees pissed away a 5-1 lead last night in Texas to lose 11-5. it's probably a good thing i missed most of the game. they play again this afternoon.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be ROH.

Ohio State plays a huge game tonight at home against Oklahoma. they will have to play better than they did against Indiana last week to get the win tonight.

i'm hoping Manchester United can keep their winning streak alive today on the road.

i figure i'll probably watch some college football this afternoon while i'm doing the dishes. that should help take my mind off of the pain.

i get a pain in my left leg anytime i stand longer than 4 or 5 minutes now. it usually takes 45 minutes to do the dishes. good times.

i'll be on here tomorrow in the morning most likely, hopefully drunk from the night before.

i hope everyone has a great Saturday. call if you need bail money.

happy birthday to my sister...

i know i don't say this as much as i should, but i am very proud of my sister and love her. she has done a truly amazing job with her life of getting her degree, making her money, not being mired in debt and living the life she wants to live. i didn't make it easy for her being a year ahead of her in school. all the book shit came easy to me, it never did for her. then of course, our asshole father gambled away the college money, and i took the hit by going to work in a factory so my sister could go to college. she called her freshman year wanting to quit and i told her she wasn't allowed to. thankfully, she listened. now, i'm hoping to talk her out of wanting to own property in the south. i'm hoping the news of these hurricanes will open her eyes. it's not likely, since the first thing she said was maybe the prices will be cheaper now. i'm not sure she realizes how much she thinks like her father when it comes to money. happy 40th birthday to my sister. be happy you don't look your age.

it was nice to see the Patriots get beat last night. Kansas City destroyed them 42-27.

Vice News Tonight had another great week of shows.

Fuck, That's Delicious Classics was excellent last night.

Big Brother was really good last night. i can't believe Jason actually thought he wasn't going to be evicted. Raven was the second eviction. yet again, another shot pissed away to get Paul out. Josh is the new HOH. i haven't heard who he is going to nominate yet.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be VICE, NJPW, Real Time with Bill Maher, Treehouse Masters and Room 104.

the New York Yankees start a series tonight in Texas against the Rangers. hopefully they can start stringing some wins together.

i'm not sure how long we'll be in Columbus tonight. i'm really interested to see how mom does. she hasn't been on this long of a car ride in a long time. plus, since her vision stinks at the moment, i'm kind of wondering how she'll do in a completely different environment. i figure we won't be closing the place down, that's for sure.

i'll be on here tomorrow before Manchester United plays Stoke City.

between the hurricanes and that earthquake in Mexico, it certainly feels like the world is coming to an end. i'm sure it will all be Obama's fault somehow.

i hope everyone has a great weekend. i hope everyone in Florida is prepared.

joder el mundo, tenemos esta noche

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...

it feels a little weird...

the NFL season starts tonight and for the first time in well over 20 years, i'm not playing any fantasy football. i'm not even picking games this season. it certainly feels a little weird. and since i'm not playing any fantasy football, i really only give a shit about what the New Orleans Saints do this season. so, my NFL season kicks off on Monday.

the New York Yankees were rained out last night and had to make up the game with Baltimore this afternoon. thankfully, they took care of business and whipped the Orioles 9-1. sadly, before the game, Gene "Stick" Michael passed away at the age of 79. he did everything for the team in his life; player, coach, scout, manager, general manager, etc. he was the one behind the building of the Yankees last dynasty. rest in peace Stick and thank you for everything.

Big Brother was pretty good last night. i fully expect Jason to be evicted tonight and then i'm hoping all hell breaks loose on the second eviction.

the season finale of Snowfall was great last night. i really hope this show lasts for as many seasons as possible.

NXT was pretty good last night.

Lucha Underground was very good last night.

the season debut of You're the Worst was fucking great last night.

the season debut of Total Bellas was pretty funny last night.

Mr. Mercedes was fucking awesome last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, Big Brother and Fuck, That's Delicious Classics.

i might watch some of the NFL game tonight between New England and Kansas City.

for those wondering, i did get a new lamp for my desk. it's a decent one that will hopefully last me many years. i got some light bulbs for it as well. the plunger was a gag gift of sorts for my sister's new house and that she's turning 40 years old tomorrow.

i just put my last load of laundry in the washer. i figure since i'm driving mom up to Columbus tomorrow for the party for my sister, i might as well be wearing clean clothes. fuck, i might even shave and shower as well.

i did do the grocery shopping today. between gas, pills and food, i kept it under $130. that's not too bad. and i got back in time to watch the Yankees game.

i did listen to the latest Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast this morning. you can find that by going here:
http://notsam.com/wrestlingpodcast/2017/9/7/wrestling-podcast-150-big-cass

i will be on here early tomorrow as i think we'll be driving up to Columbus in the afternoon.

to all my friends, family, enemies, fans and whomever in the path of hurricane Irma, please take this one as seriously as anything you have in your life. stay safe and stay alive.

may all the gamblers be lucky tonight.

sitting across from a dream

the woman sitting across from me in the waiting room today, while i was waiting for mom to come out from her mammogram, was a damn near identical match to a huge crush i had in high school. i kept playing it off that i wasn't blatantly staring at her. now, this woman had a different name (my hearing is way too good for public places sometimes) and is probably 20 years younger than the crush, but it was a nice blast from the past. i'm sure there will be poems in the next few days.

last night was one of those nights where sports fucking crushed me. first off, the New York Yankees had a long ass rain delay before the game started. then, they couldn't hold on to a 5 run lead and eventually lost to Baltimore 7-6 on a walk off home run from future Yankee Manny Machado. the Yankees picked the wrong night to lose as Boston won last night. hopefully the Yankees can win the series tonight.

the USA played like shit last night. the defense was absolutely in shambles for most of the game. and when Honduras took the lead early in the first half, the nightmare started playing in my head. thankfully, Bobby Wood scored late to salvage a 1-1 draw that leaves the USA in 4th place in the standings. now, they next face Panama at home. Panama is 1 point ahead of them. the best the USA could finish in this now is probably 3rd, but 3rd will keep them from having to win a playoff to get into the World Cup. as much as i want them to make it, part of me knows them missing it could be best in the long run. i'm not sure why a coach would start a guy in his 40's on defense in 100 degree heat in a game that you must win. of course, the coach also believed a draw was good enough. now, if they somehow lose to Panama, he'll understand the foolish nature of that statement.

American Horror Story was fucking great last night. i think i'm really going to enjoy this season.

Deadliest Catch was pretty good last night.

Hard Knocks was good last night. it also showed why Tampa is a clown organization.

Smackdown was really good last night. the match between Shinsuke Nakamura and Randy Orton was as good as i thought it could be.

205 Live was pretty good last night as well. it will be interesting to see if Neville takes the advice Chris Jericho gave him about Enzo Amore.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, Lucha Underground, Mr. Mercedes, the season finale of Snowfall, Big Brother and the season premieres of You're the Worst and Total Bellas. i'll watch NXT sometime tonight on WWE Network.

i did listen to the latest Jim Norton and Sam Roberts podcast this morning. if you'd like to laugh your ass off, go here: https://soundcloud.com/jimandsamshow/ep-040-matt-serra-robert-kelly-mike-cannon

that's all for me today kids. i think i'm going to go make a quick trip for a lamp and a plunger. with that visual, use your imagination.

be well. be creative. be cool. be quick to send me CASH, panties, hate mail, love letters, broken promises and dirty pennies from heaven.
