the summer rain

i'm not sure if i can remember a summer with this much damn rain. and of course, i think the people that mow our grass are out of town, so it didn't get cut before this latest inch or more of rain fell. joy.

the New York Yankees got some more great starting pitching yesterday and plenty of offense to beat the Reds 9-5. they start another series tonight against Tampa. if they are "for real" about making the playoffs and being a threat, they need to win this series against the Rays.

Manchester United lost to Barcelona last night 1-0. honestly, the score was better than it should have been. David De Gea was the sole reason United only gave up 1 goal in the first half. United desperately needs help in the midfield and defense to play against a team like Barcelona.

i liked how the USA came out last night against Jamaica. they appeared they were taking the game seriously. of course, when Jamaica's best player (their goalkeeper) got injured and had to leave the game, it was like the USA thought the game was going to be easy now. once again, they were sloppy in the final third and it wasn't until a beautiful free kick from Jozy Altidore that they had a lead, 1-0. 4 minutes into the second half, Jamaica evened the score. go ahead and ratchet up the tension. Clint Dempsey put one off the post that had me pulling my fucking hair out. and then in the 88th minute, Jordan Morris, the guy who allowed his guy to score for Jamaica, makes up for his mistake with a wonderful goal. a cup winning goal. amazingly, they still haven't been defeated since Bruce Arena took over the job. i certainly enjoyed that victory drink last night.

Big Brother went as expected last night. sadly, i think Kevin ruined the surprise tonight. Ramses will get evicted and all the fireworks i was hoping for probably won't happen.

Lucha Underground was really good last night.

NXT was very good last night.

Snowfall was excellent once again last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight and Big Brother.

i did listen to the latest Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast today. i highly recommend his interview with Jim Ross. you can find that by going here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/sam-roberts-wrestling-podcast/id934576040?mt=2

i'm hoping the damn rain has stopped. i know i need to get ready to take mom to physical therapy. i haven't had too many problems with the pinched nerves today. my greatest fear is that i'm developing carpal tunnel syndrome. i remember my father having it so bad in both wrists he had to have surgery on both of them. of course, that asshole had both done at the same time. that way we (mom, sister, myself) had to take care of him 24/7.

i can't imagine given my history being anything other than a poet.

i figure i will be on here tomorrow after a trip to the grocery store. it's supposed to be raining tomorrow, so that should be about as fun as a bag of flaming dicks.

that's all for me kids. take it easy and then take it again.

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...

happy birthday to death

my father would have been 71 today. i think we're both happy that he's dead.

i have fallen back into the rut of not falling asleep until 3 or 4 in the morning again. it's not much fun when you have to be up just a few hours later. good times.

the New York Yankees got some great starting pitching last night and just enough offense to defeat the Reds 4-2. they will go for the sweep this afternoon. they are only 1 game out of first place in the division now.

Smackdown was really good last night. Chris Jericho showing up to make a triple threat match with AJ Styles and Kevin Owens was a nice touch. AJ won back the US Title by defeating Jericho. the look on KO's face was priceless. and the match next week between John Cena and Shinsuke Nakamura should be amazing. how the show could be this good and the ppv Sunday was awful is beyond me.

The Jim Jefferies Show was fucking hilarious last night.

Tom Morello was the guest on last night's episode of Fear(less) with Tim Ferriss. Tom is one of my favorite humans and the interview really made me think just how much Rage Against the Machine shaped my teenage mind. next week Bill Burr is on the show.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, Big Brother, Lucha Underground and Snowfall. i'll watch NXT sometime tonight on WWE Network.

Manchester United finishes up the USA portion of their preseason tonight against Barcelona. it would be nice to see them go undefeated while in the states.

that match will go right into the Gold Cup final between the USA and Jamaica. i'm really hoping the boys aren't thinking just because it's not Mexico against them in the final, it's going to be easy. i'm hoping they are thinking about how Jamaica knocked them out of the last Gold Cup. time for some fucking revenge.

hopefully i will be nice and drunk by late tonight, off to slip into a coma.

that's all for me kids. hope you have a great day.

laundry day

just put my last load of laundry in the dryer, so i'm going to try to bust this out before the clothes are done.

i've spent most of today listening to my mother bitch at the television. why she watches political shit these days is beyond me. my hope is they fully repeal Obamacare. that way, most of the people that will lose their healthcare will be Trump supporters. that should be their reward for electing that piece of shit President. if you want to fix healthcare in this country, it's pretty easy. cut out the insurance companies completely and start from scratch. but, since the rich don't want the poor to have any chance to be successful in this country, that will never happen. so, one side of the country thinks of healthcare as a right and the other side thinks of it as a commodity. until that divide is solved, welcome to the clusterfuck.

Monday Night Raw was pretty good last night. i do love the direction they are going in for SummerSlam.

Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy was really good last night. it is really hard to believe it has been twenty years since her death.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, Smackdown, The Jim Jefferies Show and Fear(less) with Tim Ferriss. i'll watch 205 Live sometime tonight on WWE Network.

the New York Yankees start a short 2 game series tonight at home against the Reds. hopefully they can get on a roll and start winning some games. they are amazingly, only 2 games out in the division.

i did listen to the latest Jim Norton and Sam Roberts podcast. you can find that by going here:
https://soundcloud.com/jimandsamshow/ep-035-anthony-cumia

the New York Rangers signed their last remaining restricted free agent today to a 5 year 26.75 million dollar contract. it's a good deal for the team and a good deal for Mika Zibanejad. plus, the team still has 3 million left under the salary cap. that gives them plenty of wiggle room for trades during the season.

i will probably be on here in the morning tomorrow.

i have trash to go pickup and clothes to fold shortly, so that's all for me kids.

start another round of apathy

i was really looking forward to WWE Battleground last night. the tag team title match that started the show off was fucking amazing. sadly, it was straight downhill from there. hell, i think i almost fell asleep a few times during it. and given the people on this show, there's no reason for it to be so damn bad. as someone wrote today, remember when Smackdown was good. apparently the WWE wants you to forget that.

thankfully, the New York Yankees ended their nightmare and actually won a damn series for the first time in 6 weeks yesterday. they beat Seattle 6-4. a winning road trip even, holy shit. they are off tonight and start a series at home tomorrow against the Reds.

Manchester United would have beaten Real Madrid in regulation yesterday if it wasn't for a stupid fucking tackle from Victor Lindelof. instead, they defeated them in one of the worst penalty shootouts i think i have EVER seen. god fucking awful. United will end their time in the USA in a couple days when they play Barcelona.

Big Brother was pretty good last night. i really can't believe Jessica decided to play it safe.

Power was excellent last night. just when i thought it was going to go one way, the show went in a direction i completely didn't see coming. love it.

Ballers was excellent last night.

season 2 of Insecure picked up right where season 1 ended. this season looks like it will be just as great as the first one was.

The Strain was fucking awesome last night. they are certainly going out with a bang in the final season.

Twin Peaks was yet another glorious mindfuck.

I'm Dying Up Here was really good last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight and Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy. i will be watching Monday Night Raw for most of the evening.

i did write and type up 8 poems yesterday afternoon. i believe that gives me 34 for the month of July now. that makes me really happy as i normally don't write much in the summer. of the 8 from yesterday, i really like a few of them. i figure i'll have one more big writing session this month and probably have some poems ready to go in August.

i know i have dishes to do sometime today as well. i figure that will happen after i get mom back home from her physical therapy session.

i hope everyone had a great weekend.

pissing on your parade

my poem "pissing on your parade" has been published at In Between Hangovers. you can find the poem by going here: https://inbetweenhangovers.wordpress.com/2017/07/23/pissing-on-your-parade-by-j-j-campbell/

hot and muggy, rinse and repeat

started the day off today with some thunder. not sure if that's a sign of things to come...

i had a pretty lazy Saturday. i think i caught up on just about all the sleep i could.

it was painfully obvious the home plate umpire last night was totally fucking annoyed the New York Yankees came from behind twice to force extra innings last night in Seattle. the Yankees had two strike threes called on them in the top of the 10th last night that were around the ankles. in the bottom of the inning, the strike zone was about the size of a penny. naturally, Seattle won 6-5. the Yankees will still have a chance to win the series this afternoon.

the USA vs. Costa Rica game last night completely changed when Clint Dempsey entered. one big assist and one big goal later, the USA won 2-0 to advance to the Gold Cup finals. the goal ties Clint with Landon Donovan for the most goals scored for the national team. hopefully he breaks it in the finals. this was easily the best the USA has played in the tournament.

ROH was excellent last night.

i did catch a little of the UFC last night.

Risk was fascinating last night on Showtime. i think i learned more about Julian Assange than i ever thought i was going to. i highly recommend it.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Big Brother, Ballers, Insecure, The Strain, Twin Peaks, I'm Dying Up Here and Power.

Manchester United takes on Real Madrid this afternoon. that should be interesting to say the least.

apparently, it's monsoon season

i swear, for the last few days, just about every couple of hours there's a new rainstorm coming through. not exactly the greatest thing for my arthritis. i somehow managed to "sleep" through the pain last night. of course, i paid for it when every joint in my body cracked with that first step this morning. good times.

Aaron Judge hit the longest home run i have ever seen hit in Seattle last night and the Yankees won again, 5-1. 2 wins in a row, holy shit. they will go for the series win tonight.

Big Brother went pretty much how i thought it would go last night. Cody is back in the house and i found out last night that Jessica, his girlfriend, is the new HOH. and since she won the last temptation, that pretty much means her and Cody are safe for the next month.

NJPW was excellent last night.

Vice Special Report: A World in Disarray was very good last night. it detailed how the Iraq war was a complete clusterfuck from the beginning and how Obama dropped the ball with regards to Syria. more or less, we planted the seeds to all of this chaos and now with old fuck face as President, it's time to reap. i figure if i'm still around in the next 30 years, i will see a nuclear war.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be ROH and Risk.

i will be watching the USA take on Costa Rica tonight in the Gold Cup semifinals. if the USA want to get to the finals, they will have to earn it.

i might watch some UFC tonight as well.

mom surprised me last night when she did the dishes before i had a chance to do them. i hope that means that she is starting to feel better again. i made sure to put them away and do the dishes from last night's dinner this morning.

i get the feeling i may do a little writing today or napping between soccer matches. at least i got the grocery shopping done between storms.

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

you would think the world was coming to an end

the grocery store was fucking crazy today. between the scroll of things mom wanted me to get and having to park about 1/4 mile away from the door, the heat and humidity just made everything worse. i was hoping the rain we got this morning was going to cool shit off. apparently, any rain we get anymore is just a stimulant to heat up the damn place even more. i did my best to keep everything under $100 today, but i told mom it was going to be close to impossible to do so. i came in at $111 when it was all said and done. that's not too bad. of course, i was in the store for almost 90 minutes getting everything. while i don't mind people watching, i don't like it that much.

i got some great FREE music this morning on NoiseTrade. below is the link:
Elliot Root - Suddenly Everything EP

the New York Yankees won last night up in Seattle 4-1. hopefully they will make it two in a row later tonight.

Manchester United defeated Manchester City 2-0 last night. hopefully that's a sign of things to come in the Premier League season.

i pretty much drank myself to sleep last night. a little Jagermeister and then my good friend Tanqueray showed up and all hell broke loose. i forgot how much the alcoholic side of my brain enjoys gin.

Vice News Tonight had another great week of shows.


the 30 for 30 last night was excellent. i highly recommend everyone checking out George Best: All By Himself.

i did listen to the latest Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast late yesterday. you can find that by going here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/sam-roberts-wrestling-podcast/id934576040?mt=2

Big Brother went how i expected it to go last night. Dominique was voted out 10-0. i'm really interested to see which of the first four evicted house guests come back into the game tonight. i'm sure the producers are hoping for Cody.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Big Brother, NJPW and Vice Special Report: A World in Disarray.

of course, if it keeps raining like this, there might be nothing on the DVR and i will just be listening to music and writing.

i think i might have a pinched nerve in my right shoulder now. fits right in with the one in my neck. it's always fun to be typing and feel your fingers start to go numb.

that's all for me kids. i have a sink full of dishes that needs to be washed. joy.

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

afternoon thunderstorms

i was just starting to write this when the news that Chester Bennington committed suicide today broke. the fucking eerie part for me is that today is Chris Cornell's birthday. and when someone that is as old as me does die, i'm torn. should i be mournful or jealous? i never really got into Linkin Park. but as i have grown older, i have learned to appreciate anyone that has tried to share their creativity with the world. i do hope he and his family will find whatever peace that is out there for them.

the New York Yankees lost yet again yesterday, 6-1. that's another damn series lost. that's also the first series they have lost to the Twins in 9 years i believe. the Yankees start a 4 game series tonight in Seattle.

Big Brother was pretty good last night. i do think that Dominique will get evicted tonight, although i'm sure there will be some producer shenanigans going on.

Lucha Underground was really good last night.

NXT was excellent last night.

Snowfall was fucking great last night. i think FX has another winner on their hands.

the USA has not played well at all in the Gold Cup. i am somewhat surprised they have made into the semifinals. i really shouldn't be that surprised given the shitty soccer in this region if you don't play for Mexico, USA, Costa Rica or Panama. El Salvador did their best last night to turn the game into a complete shit show. 2 late USA goals in the first half made the second half mostly unwatchable. how the fuck El Salvador got away with biting and punching and never getting called for it is beyond me. but, the victory puts the USA against Costa Rica Saturday night in the semifinals.

Lip Sync Battle was pretty good last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, Big Brother and 30 for 30 George Best: All By Himself.

that 30 for 30 will be on right before Manchester United takes on Manchester City. i think this is the first time they have played the Manchester derby in the USA. hopefully United will win.

my pain has been pretty bad today. i only got 4 hours of sleep last night. and my arthritis has been fucking with me since i woke up. this rain this afternoon did me no fucking favors. hopefully it cooled everything down. that would be nice.

i still have to take a shower before i take mom to her physical therapy session.

i will probably be on here tomorrow after my trip to the grocery store. i believe mom is going to have a scroll for me. she's spent the last few days looking through cookbooks. i'll be interested to see what a woman with cataracts in both eyes wrote down for ingredients.

i have to figure out a new way to sleep

my right shoulder hurts so fucking much these days that i have to figure out a new way to sleep. i have slept on my right side for years now. unless i drink myself into a coma, that isn't possible anymore. i got no more than 45 minutes trying to sleep that way last night. so, more or less, i just fucking tossed and turned all night. i figure i'll be out in my chair before too long.

the New York Yankees won last night, 6-3. they go for the series win against Minnesota this afternoon. they also made a pretty big trade last night. they somehow got rid of Tyler Clippard, along with 3 prospects, and got back 3 useful pieces from the White Sox; Todd Frazier, David Robertson and Tommy Kahnle. both pitchers used to be with the Yankees and Frazier should give them some much needed help at third and first base.

Smackdown was not as good as i thought it was going to be last night. i figured, going into WWE Battleground this Sunday, the show would be good. so much for that.

205 Live was pretty good last night.

The Jim Jefferies Show last night was fucking hilarious.

Deadliest Catch 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, Lip Sync Battle, Lucha Underground and Snowfall. i'll watch NXT sometime tonight on WWE Network.

in Gold Cup action tonight, the USA takes on El Salvador with the winner advancing to the semifinals. i'd like to think that the USA will win tonight, but anything is possible these days.

i've heard back from a couple places i sent to yesterday, but i don't know which poems are going to be published yet. but the signs are looking good.

i think it's supposed to be yet another hot and sticky day here. i know i need to get some damn bread at the grocery store at some point today. so much for getting that done this morning.

that's all for me kids. i'll be on here tomorrow before mom's physical therapy session.

frustration, my old friend

the internet was going in and out this morning. plus, my arthritic hands and the mouse and the keyboard weren't working together at all. it took me over 2 hours to get all the poems out. that's the problem with the hot days where i live. there's nothing for anyone to do other than sit inside and stream music or porn or play games for hours on end. and people wonder why there is a heroin problem here.

so here's the details on the poems. i sent out 33 poems today. 3 each to Pink Litter and Mad Swirl. 5 each to Duane's PoeTree, Winedrunk Sidewalk and Over The Transom. 6 each to Anti-Heroin Chic and Rose Red Review. when i hear back from these places, i will pass along the verdicts.

the New York Yankees lost last night in Minnesota 4-2. they had plenty of chances to win the game but could never string together clutch hits to get the job done.

Monday Night Raw was pretty good last night. i had no clue where they were going with the Kurt Angle revelations, but i do see plenty of upside by saying Jason Jordan is his long lost son. it's crazy enough to actually work.

Manchester United won last night, 2-1 over Real Salt Lake. they started off poorly and was actually trailing at one point. thankfully, they took the lead in the first half. then, they got a good dose of working their asses off when they went a man down for the last 30 minutes or so. they play again on Thursday.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, Smackdown, Deadliest Catch and The Jim Jefferies Show. i'll watch 205 Live sometime tonight on WWE Network.

mom wanted to get her haircut today, so i took to where we both go this afternoon. she used her cane going in. that's the first time she hadn't used the walker in a pretty long time. i could tell it's going to take her some time before she's comfortable without the walker.

i've got the trash already picked up, so now all i need to do is figure out what the fuck is for dinner.

all my good thoughts come on the toilet

i was flipping between the baseball game last night and some of my Sunday night shows when i had to take a shit. while on the toilet, for some damn reason, i had a phrase pop into my head out of nowhere. 2 minutes later, that phrase was a poem. that turned into 3 poems by the end of the night. i typed them up around 1 in the morning, since mom was still awake. i really like them and will probably save them for submissions in August. i did come up with 3 more poems for the submissions tomorrow. i'm going to be busy as fuck in the morning.

the New York Yankees won the first game of the doubleheader yesterday 3-0 and lost the second game by the same score. that means they split the 4 game series with Boston. that also means the Yankees still haven't won a damn series since early June. they start a series tonight in Minnesota.

Big Brother was pretty funny last night.

Power was excellent last night. the ending was fucking perfect.

Twin Peaks was yet another delicious mindfuck.

I'm Dying Up Here was really good last night.

The Strain was fucking awesome last night. since this is the last season of the show, i'm expecting some crazy ass shit.

and now some of this and that:

some high highs and a low low

yesterday was one of those days where i had such a wide swing of emotions that i was fucking spent before midnight. thank god the alcohol helped.

i'm not quite sure my sister understands how easily she pisses me off sometimes. i handed her my two broadsides yesterday and jokingly told her that will be $5. she looked at me and said, i'm trying to buy a house, i don't have $5 to spare. i said ok, just pay me whenever, it's cool. so, a couple hours later when i saw my sister left the broadsides behind, that was like a punch to the gut. i'm not exactly sure why i should have a positive outlook on life when even my own fucking family couldn't give two shits about what i do. that left me for most of the afternoon just sitting in the dark in my room, wondering why the fuck do i even bother?

the New York Yankees actually pulled a victory out of the jaws of defeat yesterday. 4-1 win in 16 fucking innings. this time, it was Boston's bullpen that shit the bed. the Yankees tied the game at 1 in the top of the 9th and then finally scored again in the top of the 16th. they play a doubleheader today. i can't imagine either team having much energy at all.

when team USA missed two penalty kicks last night, i was fucking furious. they needed to win by 3 goals over Nicaragua or they were going to finish second in the group and have to play Costa Rica in the quarterfinals. amazingly, they scored in the 88th minute to win the game 3-0. this team can't do anything easy to save its' fucking life.

Manchester United scored early and often last night in a victory over LA Galaxy 5-2. that's a good start for their preseason tour. they next play on Monday.

i only had 2 of the 3 victory drinks last night. figured i'd carry one over to today.

ROH was excellent last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Big Brother, Power, Twin Peaks, I'm Dying Up Here and The Strain.

i did a little poetry work this morning. i think the submission coming up this week will be 30 poems now. i guess that's the one good thing about constantly writing. when you find a new place to send to, you actually have fresh shit to send them.

we were actually able to open up the windows a little bit yesterday. i guess the humidity is returning today.

nothing quite like angry sleep

as i have grown older, i have really begun to dislike games between the Yankees and Red Sox. mostly because they take forever. last night was no different. when the Yankees closer couldn't any out to begin the bottom of the 9th (two infield singles), i knew doom was coming. the bullpen was supposed to be the strength of this team this year. time and time again this season, they have pissed away lead after lead. and to give up the winning run on a fucking walk is mind boggling to me. i'd rather watch paint dry than that again. New York lost 5-4. they play Boston against this afternoon. hopefully, i'll have something better to do.

after that debacle, i turned on some loud music and started to go through the unpublished poems file. i think i have my next round of submissions set up. 19 poems this time around. i'm shooting for Tuesday most likely.

NJPW was excellent last night. i could watch Will Ospreay wrestle Kushida forever and never get tired of it.

VICE was very good last night. it clearly showed how Turkey is becoming the latest dictatorship. hopefully old fuck face Trump wasn't watching to get any ideas of how he could become President until he dies.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be ROH.

team USA has a pretty simple mission today in the Gold Cup. beat Nicaragua and you should win your group. it's just that i don't know if this team is really capable of doing what it needs to do the easiest way possible. when you play down to your competition's level, disaster is always just one fuck up away. and it's obvious that FOX didn't think this game was going to mean anything since it's going to be on FXX.

Manchester United plays a preseason friendly tonight against Los Angeles Galaxy. that game will be on ESPN2. i'll be watching.

i believe my sister is coming down here for a little bit today. hopefully i can get her to buy some broadsides.

i'll be on here tomorrow before the first game of the Yankees doubleheader. hopefully, i will be in a better mood.

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

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...

that fresh sunburn kind of feel

so, i was trying to get to bed kind of early last night and around 11:30, i started to smell something. i started to walk around the house and quickly realized there has to be a fucking skunk somewhere outside. we had the air conditioning on and well, just fuck me. so much for getting to sleep early.

i didn't sleep well at all last night. maybe just 2 or 3 hours at a time. but, i was up and showered and made it to the doctor's office on time. the doctor was very pleased with me. my weight is down. my A1C was excellent. my blood pressure was very good. he even gave me the option to give up one of the pills i'm on for Type 2 Diabetes but i decided to keep things the same for now. i'd like to see if my weight continues to go down if my A1C will follow.

the grocery store this morning was a little crazy. plenty of people trying to get all the shopping done before the heat of the day and while it isn't fucking raining. amazingly, i got everything on the list and kept it under $90. mom was shocked when she saw the receipt.

she then had me go to the drugstore to return one thing and find another. i had to get some shit while i was there as well. so that was my morning and early afternoon.

time for a fucking nap.

Big Brother was pretty good last night. Cody got evicted, although i'm pretty sure the producers would love to see him comeback in a week. Alex is the new HOH, so it could be an interesting week.

the 30 for 30: Mike and The Mad Dog was pretty good last night. if you ever want to know why sports talk radio is the way it is, blame those two.

Vice News Tonight had another excellent week of shows.

i got some great FREE music on NoiseTrade last night. here are the links:
Cris Jacobs - Dust to Gold
Jordan Lovelis - MYSTERY'S TEETH

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be VICE and NJPW.

the New York Yankees start a series tonight up in Boston. a sweep could go a long way to getting back into the race for the division. but, if they get swept and given the Yankees injuries, it may be time to turn the season over to the kids.

i will be on here early tomorrow. there is a ton happening in the afternoon and evening, so look for me in the morning.

i hope everyone has a great start to their 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...

not enough hours in the day

i'm not quite sure what the fuck i was dreaming about last night. there was this black woman i wrote about in a poem yesterday, two pieces of moldy bread, a waterfall in South Asia, a gypsy telling me about my death and a hippie playing an acoustic guitar. i only had one damn drink last night. i figure i'm either getting ready to snap or that coconut rum had more than just coconut in it.

there was so much on television last night that i ended up having to watch some of it this morning. i have to find time to sneak in a nap here and there.

i wasn't too happy with how the USA played last night against Martinique. they struggled for most of the game and once again had a let down when they scored. you can't have a team that is like that come back from down 2-0 to make it 2-2 in just a matter of minutes. thank god Jordan Morris found some of his old form last night to score the winner. a 3-2 win with way too many questions to be answered. they better find those answers soon if they actually want to win the Gold Cup.

Lucha Underground was excellent last night.

NXT was really good last night.

Snowfall was amazing last night.

Lip Sync Battle was pretty funny last night.

Big Brother was fucking hilarious last night. hopefully Cody will be voted out tonight.

Part 4 of The Defiant Ones last night was pretty good. overall, i think if you are young and don't know much about the history of music, this series would be an excellent start for you. as for myself, it was good to reminisce over a time in music that i loved and grew up in.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, Big Brother and 30 for 30: Mike and The Mad Dog.

i did listen to the latest Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast today. you can find that by going here:

it's been raining here most of the day. i know the arthritis in my right shoulder is horrific now.

i will be on here tomorrow sometime after my doctor's appointment and a trip to the grocery store.

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