long live The King...

when Montreal scored first last night, i was not really pissed, just disappointed. i was hoping the Rangers were going to come out with the urgency of now. thankfully, that clicked in during the second period and the Rangers, notably the line of Miller, Hayes and Zuccarello, took over the game and finished off Montreal 3-1. that was one sweet victory drink last night. the Rangers will play either Boston or Ottawa in the next round. i could care less who they play. they have 12 wins to go to bring home the greatest trophy in all of sports.

the New York Yankees broke out the long ball yesterday and beat the Pirates 11-5. i believe the ball Aaron Judge hit may still be going. they will go for the series win this afternoon.

ROH was excellent last night.

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks was great last night. i urge everyone to check this out when you get a chance. if Oprah doesn't win an award for her performance, i'll be stunned.

i am now on Goodreads. i figured i might as well start an account, mostly for shits and giggles. you can find my page by going here: goodreads.com/jjthepoet

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Silicon Valley, Veep, Last Week Tonight, Guerrilla, Billions and the finale of Feud: Bette and Joan.

i will be watching El Clasico today, Real Madrid vs. Barcelona. it's really one of the matches i try to make time for that doesn't include a team i love.

speaking of that team, Manchester United had to start a different lineup today, because of injuries and whatnot. when i saw Wayne Rooney was starting, i was a bit surprised. imagine my surprise when the old fucker scored. United won today 2-0 with goals from Martial and Rooney. of course, it wouldn't be a Manchester United game if there wasn't some kind of injury scare. this time it's Paul Pogba. United next plays on Thursday against Manchester Shitty. United is now only 1 point behind their neighbors.

if i can find a few spare moments today, i am going to try to get those poems out. the longer i sit on them, the more i will question if they are the right ones for the right place... this is when i always try to keep my favorite Allen Ginsberg quote in mind... first thought, best thought.

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

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...

earth day 2017... how many more of these do we have left?

i had a little laugh this morning. i saw someone wrote if someone is tweeting against the march for science today, they really should ask how do they think twitter came about. of course, then it will become who can win an argument against a stupid person, etc. etc.

if anyone in 2017 doesn't believe climate change exists, it's really simple. you are fucking stupid. there is no other way to think about it.

Real Time with Bill Maher was excellent last night.

NJPW was really good last night.

VICE was fascinating last night. i never knew of the movie scene in Nigeria. plus, i guess i see how "we" are trying to conquer the world...

the New York Yankees lost last night to Pittsburgh, 6-3. i didn't watch much of the game after CC gave up the home run in the first inning. hopefully they can get back to winning this afternoon.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and ROH.

i will be watching Game 6 of the New York Rangers vs. Montreal tonight. i'm really hoping the Rangers can finish this off tonight and avoid having to go back to Montreal for Game 7.

i may send out some poems today. if i do, it will be after the cleaning people leave. if i don't, laziness has won.

i'll be on here tomorrow after Manchester United plays.

i hope everyone has a great Saturday. hopefully the weather is nice where you are. and hopefully the violence is at a minimum. call if you need bail money.

overtime magic

there are times that the New York Rangers frustrate the living shit out of me. they have a tendency to sit back and think their talent will get everything done for them. thankfully, something clicked in the second period last night and they started to actually attempt to outwork Montreal. thank god they found it before it was too late.
a 3-2 win in Game 5 to go up in the series 3-2. Game 6 is Saturday night at MSG. god willing, the boys won't have to go back to Montreal for a Game 7.

after the game mom asked me what i wanted her to do when i have my heart attack from how i watch these games. i told her, let me die. i've been asking for it for 41 years now. if i can die after a victory, at least i'll be as happy as i can fucking get.

Vice News Tonight had another great week of shows.

Lip Sync Battle was great last night. Justin Verlander is a very lucky man.

while the Rangers were frustrating me last night, i thought about watching some playoff basketball. i noticed Cleveland was trailing by a ton at halftime last night. and then i saw they were only down by a couple. thankfully, i got to see some of what LeBron did last night. it's hard to imagine just how much people take him for granted.

Fuck, That's Delicious 4/20 Special was fucking hilarious last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

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

the New York Yankees start a series tonight in Pittsburgh. hopefully they can keep on winning.

i went to the grocery store earlier today. i was pretty happy that i was able to get everything that was on the list and keep it under $100.

i also did a little poetry work today. i think i know where my next round of submissions are going. that might be what i do this weekend. or maybe late tonight... whenever that wild hair gets up my ass...

it's hard to believe it's been one year since Prince died. of course, i've heard there's a ton of unreleased music that will be coming out for years to come. i suppose that depends on the family and the court system. i've spent a good portion of today just listening to old songs of his. there truly will never be another one.

i hope everyone has a great weekend. i have no clue when i'll be on here tomorrow. i'm going to try to get it done in the morning, as i believe the cleaning people will be coming in the afternoon. i find it funny that mom is bitching about money yet still pays for people to come and clean the house. tales for another day...

i could really use a smoke right now...

i have no damn clue why Manchester United always makes it tough on themselves this season. they controlled nearly all of the fucking game today, yet still had to go into extra time to advance to the semi-finals of the Europa League. plus, Rojo and Ibrahimovic got injured, hopefully not bad enough to miss any matches. they play again on Sunday. the draw for the Europa League is tomorrow.

the New York Yankees defeated the White Sox last night 9-1. the long ball was working last night. that closed out an 8-1 homestand. i'll gladly take that all season long. they start a road series tomorrow in Pittsburgh.

NXT was really good last night. always good to see a steel cage match.

Total Divas was hilarious last night. i do love a drunk Renee Young.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, Lip Sync Battle and Fuck, That's Delicious 4/20 Special.

the New York Rangers play Game 5 tonight in Montreal. hopefully the boys remember the KISS theory and pull out another win on the road.

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

i did write 6 poems this afternoon and managed to get them typed up before the rain came. i really like all 6 of them. i'm going to try to get another round of submissions out next week, hopefully.

we've already had one round of storms move through here today. i'm not sure how many more rounds are coming. i did get all the windows closed before the first storm hit. i'm happy i didn't feed the birds now. when most of the birdseed gets wet, it's useless.

that's all for me kids. i'll be on here sometime tomorrow. i have some drinking to go do.

it'll happen sometime before i die

mom got a tentative date for her hip replacement today. i'm saying it's tentative because if some insurance chaos happens in her favor, her surgery gets moved up 2 weeks. she was little surprised that it's now scheduled for late May. i wasn't. i figured it would be even later. so now it's my goal to make sure she doesn't self-sabotage this one.

i guess there is supposed to be storms tomorrow. it figures, about 3 good days of weather is all this area can take.

the New York Yankees bats went cold last night, losing 4-1. they did at least give themselves a chance for a big hit in the bottom of the 9th, but, that's baseball. hopefully they start another winning streak tonight.

the New York Rangers finally played 60 minutes of hockey for a change last night. that helped them finally snap a 6 game home losing streak in the playoffs. they defeated Montreal 2-1. that evens the series at 2-2. so now it's a best of 3 with 2 games being on the road. and the Rangers were the best road team in the NHL this season. hopefully that continues.

The Voice was good last night. a couple of the performances were amazing. i didn't agree with all of the ones that moved on, but that didn't shock me.

Deadliest Catch was really good last night.

Smackdown was a little weird last night. i'm starting to think that someone in creative is listening to Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast as there is no other logical reason for having Jinder Mahal as the #1 contender. but, i do believe Charlotte vs. Naomi will be amazing when they face each other next week.

205 Live 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 Total Divas. i'll watch NXT sometime tonight on WWE Network.

mom wanted me to take her to the drugstore today because she didn't want me to have to go in and buy her feminine hygiene product. that made me laugh, especially when i had to point it out to her in the store. her eyesight is horrific these days. i'd love for her to get that checked before her hip replacement but i doubt that happens. and i wonder where i get my procrastination from...

i will probably be on here tomorrow after Manchester United plays in the Europa League.

i suppose i just look a certain way

so mom had me go out to make her some copies of some paperwork she has to turn in for the insurance companies, etc. today. so i went to the closest Office Depot to where we live. now, this was my second trip to that area today as i went to the bank earlier. i would have loved to get it all done at one time, but oh well. i get to the back of the store and notice a few people standing around. i figured they were waiting for shit to get done. there was a black woman in front of me that needed to fax something. after she got waited on, the large black guy working behind the counter asked me how he could help me? i told him i needed 1 copy of each sheet of paper, no staples. he quickly got that done and told me to come over to the register to pay. i paid the money and was very happy to be done in less than 5 minutes. as i was walking away, one of the black guys that was standing around raised his voice to the large black worker and asked ARE YOU GONNA PASS ME OVER AGAIN? that made me chuckle. and people wonder why i refuse to change my look.

today was one of those days where it felt so good out that most people just wanted to be outside, not doing anything. i could tell this when i was at the bank and there were more customers than people working.

the New York Yankees won again last night, 7-4. that's 8 wins in a row, 7 straight at home. that ties the 1998 team's start at home. they are now entering holy shit numbers. they will go for number 9 in a row tonight against the White Sox.

Monday Night Raw was pretty good last night. the ring collapsing in the main event was certainly a sight to behold.

The Voice was really good last night. the 6 performances i liked the best were the ones that moved on from Blake's and Alicia's teams. tonight will be Adam's and Gwen's teams performing.

i did listen to the latest Jim Norton & Sam Roberts podcast today. you can find that by going here:

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

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

the New York Rangers have a MUST WIN game tonight at home against Montreal. they can't afford to go down 3-1 in the series. all i really hope is that they play the entire game with a sense of urgency.

i saw last night that John Crosby is transferring from Dayton. i was a little shocked by the news as he was going to be the starting point guard next season. now, if the recruit they just let out of his commitment doesn't decide to go to Dayton after all, the Flyers will be without a point guard on their roster. that will take some creative shit from coach Grant to fix that in a hurry.

i'll be on here tomorrow after i take mom to her doctor's appointment. hopefully, we will find out when her hip replacement will be rescheduled for.

that's all for me kids.

one of those days where i wish i could sleep it all away

you know, the kind of day where you would love to just find a good recliner and take a nap that lasts all afternoon and a good portion of the evening. instead, i've spent most of the day doing dishes and laundry, wondering when my mother is going to realize getting a dishwasher isn't one of those outlandish thoughts for 2017.

Easter dinner yesterday went pretty well. i think my sister and i have matured enough to this point where we realize nothing truly can be gained from fighting with each other.

the New York Rangers played like shit yesterday. they didn't even bother to fake having a pulse until 57 minutes into the game. it's way too fucking late by then. Montreal won 3-1. if The King wouldn't have been excellent again yesterday, it would have been 6, 7 or 8 to 1. truly a fucking joke. Game 4 is on Tuesday. if the Rangers play like that again, this series is more or less over.
when that's the only highlight from the game for the Rangers, you know it was a truly shitty game.

thankfully, the New York Yankees continued their roll last night. Greg Bird finally broke out of his slump and the pitching was excellent once again. they beat St. Louis 9-3 for their second straight sweep. they start a series with the Chicago White Sox tonight. hopefully they can keep the winning streak going.

the series finale of Girls was about what i expected. the one thing i truly enjoyed about the show was how good it was at showing that some parts of life are just fucking mundane. there is no glamour or joy in them. and showing Hannah's frustration with being a new mother was a nice realistic example of what 99.9% of mothers go through. i never cared for shows that sugarcoat reality to a degree that is nothing more than fantasy.

Veep was fucking great last night. i absolutely love the pace of the comedy in the show.

Last Week Tonight was brilliant as always last night. hopefully the people of France were watching.

Guerrilla was very interesting last night. 1971 London is a little before my time, so i was pretty interested in the show. after watching the first episode, i'm in for all 6 episodes now.

Billions was excellent last night. next week's episode certainly looks even more interesting.

Feud: Bette and Joan was great once again. next week is the finale.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight and The Voice. i will be watching Monday Night Raw and some playoff hockey for most of the night.

i hope everyone had a great weekend. i have no clue when i'll be on here tomorrow. i'm not really sure of my mother's schedule for this week. plus, i'd love to get one more marathon writing session in.

the joys of an unexpected victory...

when i saw that Zlatan Ibrahimovic wasn't starting today for Manchester United, i figured they decided they couldn't win against Chelsea, so save him for the Europa League. boy, was i wrong. United easily played their best game of the season today, blanking the league leaders 2-0. that's United's first win over Chelsea since Sir Alex was coaching the team. even better, it was the first game that Chelsea didn't have a shot on goal in a decade. it was a pure fucking joy to watch. this will be one of the sweetest victory drinks in years. hats off to Ander Herrera today, one for his goal and two for putting Eden Hazard in his pocket and never letting him out. brilliant.

Saturday Night Live was really good last night, at least what i got to see. for some fucking reason, our local NBC station ran extra commercials and didn't even bother showing the last 10 minutes of the show.

ROH was excellent last night as well.

i watched a good amount of UFC last night. i was not disappointed.

the New York Yankees got some great pitching from CC yesterday and held on for a 3-2 victory. that's 6 in a row. they will go for another sweep tonight.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be the series finale of Girls, Veep, Last Week Tonight, Guerrilla, Billions and Feud: Bette and Joan.

the New York Rangers play Game 3 of their series against Montreal tonight at home. i'm really hoping the boys don't squander any more chances to take control of this series.

my sister is next door playing with all the children. i believe they had an Easter egg hunt as well. at least they got that in before the rain comes this afternoon.

i got some great FREE music on NoiseTrade this morning. i'll post the links below in the music section.

a good chance i won't live into my 60's...

i have a tendency to wear my emotions on my sleeves, especially when watching the sports teams i love. so, when the New York Rangers lost in OT last night (4-3), i was fucking furious. angry enough that when i woke up this morning, i was still fucking furious. i'm smart enough to know that's a recipe for disaster. i suppose that's why i'm trying to suck the marrow out of life, at least while i'm here. i doubt there will be much enjoyment where i'm going.

the Rangers were 17 damn seconds away last night from winning in regulation and stealing another game in Montreal. instead, they gave up the tying goal, mostly because they were too worried about being cute instead of just clearing the damn puck by any means necessary. The King had a ridiculous 58 saves last night. he's the only reason the Rangers had any damn chance to win. so, now the series is 1-1. Game 3 is Sunday night at Madison Square Garden. if the Rangers play like they have at home for most of this season, i'll stop watching the game midway through the first period.
per usual, Montreal came out of that with a power play for some fucking reason. much like the regular season, the fucking officiating has been horrific.

thankfully, the New York Yankees got the win last night against St. Louis, 4-3. some more decent pitching and some timely home runs as well. they will go for their 6th straight win later today.

NJPW was excellent last night. i always enjoy watching The Elite wrestle.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Saturday Night Live and ROH.

i believe the NBA playoffs start today, so for most of the day i'll be flipping between playoff hockey and basketball.

and if i truly get bored, i'll watch the Ohio State football spring game.

i have no idea when i'll be on here tomorrow. it will most likely be after Manchester United plays Chelsea.

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

busier than 9 cats covering up shit in a windstorm... on Good Friday

i almost got 6 hours of sleep last night. almost. i got up this morning, i knew my blood sugar was going to be high as i had some alcohol and some chips late last night. at least it wasn't sky high, so it's all good. the doctor told me today that my numbers look much better and he hopes they continue to improve. after i did the dishes i had breakfast. and then became the struggle to how the fuck i was going to get everything done today while swimming in this fucking abyss of depression and pain. it didn't rain today, but it was certainly close enough that i have had a nagging ache from head to toe all damn day. joy.

i had to go to 2 different grocery stores today. mom likes the coleslaw and macaroni salad from our grocery store in town. after i got that done, it was a trip to the big grocery store. that was a little crazy as there was a ton of people shopping. all getting ready for Easter i suppose. my goal was to spend less than $150 on everything today. apparently i haven't hit my deductible on my health insurance yet as my pills put me over my number. fuck.

the New York Yankees got some great pitching last night and just enough offense from Aaron Hicks to sweep Tampa 3-2. they start a series tonight at home against St. Louis.

The Big Bang Theory was hilarious last night.

Life in Pieces was very fucking funny last night.

Vice News Tonight had another great week of shows.

on the DVR tonight will be NJPW.

the New York Rangers play Game 2 tonight up in Montreal. i'm hoping they can steal another game up there and really put the pressure on the Canadiens.

i'll be watching that for most of the night, probably flipping over to the Yankees during intermissions.

i did get the new Kendrick Lamar album this morning on iTunes. it's as good as everyone is saying. after a few listens, i can honestly say it's fucking amazing.

i suppose one day i will slip into a coma...

the New York Rangers played the absolute perfect road game last night. The King was great in net, AV's love child, Tanner Glass, scored an unlikely goal, the defense was active, physical and blocking everything... the perfect recipe for a 2-0 win and a 1-0 lead in the series against Montreal.
the series is going to be a chippy one, that's for sure. Game 2 is tomorrow night.

NXT was really good last night. the sendoff for Shinsuke Nakamura was excellent. and i really hope this incarnation of Drew McIntyre will be booked as the fucking bad ass he proved he could be in his time away from WWE.

Total Divas was hilarious last night. i can absolutely see why Dean Ambrose married Renee Young. plus, it was cool to see the behind the scenes of Naomi coming up with her amazing entrance.

i tried to get some sleep last night, even going to bed while 2 hockey games were in overtime. needless to say, that didn't work well. i was up after just 4 hours of sleep. i figured, fuck it. i tried to get some shit done before i had to go to the doctor's office.

the doctor was pretty happy that i have lost weight and my blood sugar numbers have come down and stayed down. i need to call in the morning to see if they are changing my medications at all. i doubt they will, but there's always hope.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, The Big Bang Theory and Life in Pieces. i'll be flipping between all that and some playoff hockey as well.

the New York Yankees play tonight at home against Tampa. i'd love to see them get the sweep.

i did listen to the latest Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast today. you can listen to that by going here:
http://notsam.com/wrestlingpodcast/2017/4/13/wrestling-podcast-129-bray-wyatt

mom told me 5 minutes before Manchester United was getting ready to play today that i needed to go pick up her prescription for her pain pills. needless to say, i wasn't exactly thrilled. at least i got back home before anyone had scored.

now what absolutely fucking kills me is once United went up 1-0, they completely lacked all fucking desire and killer instinct to get the next fucking goal. so, of course, as this season is quickly becoming the nightmare of fucking draws, United gave up a late goal for the game to end 1-1. now, the away goal that United scored means technically they are winning, but it would have been so much easier to go into that second leg up 2 or 3 goals. but, why the fuck do you want to make it easy for yourself? next up is a game on Sunday at home against Chelsea. great.

i'll be on here tomorrow after i get the grocery shopping done. that will be fun as i have to get shit for Easter. oh joy.

and so it begins...

tonight begins the only playoffs that truly matter to me... the quest for the greatest trophy in all of sports...
if you aren't a fan of hockey, i beg you to watch just one playoff game. dare to watch one game in person. and then you will realize why you will be watching for the rest of your life. i don't have high hopes that the New York Rangers will win their first Stanley Cup since their glorious run in 1994. but, i will be living and dying with them until they are eliminated. god willing, that won't be until the playoffs are over in June. go get 'em boys, the mission starts tonight in Montreal.

the New York Yankees came from behind today to win 8-4. i'm really liking this team so far. plenty of young kids to root for. they will go for the sweep over Tampa tomorrow night.

Smackdown was great last night. i absolutely love that Kevin Owens is on the show now. just the possibility of matches between him and AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura should have every wrestling fan drooling.

205 Live last night was really good. i do enjoy a heel TJ Perkins.

The Voice was a recap of what has happened so far on the season. the live shows should be great, starting on Monday.

Deadliest Catch was awesome last night. i guess if there is one way for the climate change deniers to actually realize it's happening, it would be by watching this show.

i listened to the latest Jim Norton & Sam Roberts Podcast late yesterday. you can find that by going here: https://soundcloud.com/jimandsamshow/ep-021-jason-statham-tyrese-gibson

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight and Total Divas. i'll watch NXT sometime tonight on WWE Network.

i figure most of the evening will be devoted to playoff hockey.

i will be on here tomorrow after my doctor's appointment and after Manchester United plays in the Europa League.

hopefully there will be no long overtimes tonight as my appointment is early in the morning tomorrow.

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...

i'm really starting to hate the fucking rain

when i used to live on the farm, raining at night would help me sleep. i'm sure the metal roof had something to do with that. now, given that i have arthritis head to fucking toe, rain at night means i can't fucking sleep worth a shit. and on these restless days, i have a tendency to let my mind drift into the ether of my past. that usually means old names from past lovers end up in Google searches for some hate myself kind of reason. one search like that today lead to a 3 page poem that might end up as my next Soundcloud recording.

and the other problem with those searches is my mind truly just fucking with me. i once wrote in a poem about a cat i had slapping a reflection of itself. that's the kind of self hatred i can admire. i am truly fucking brutal to myself. it's an endless cycle that's completely unhealthy, but i'm not exactly hoping to live forever. but, at some point before i die, i would like to be in a healthy relationship again that might even end up with the possibility of sex, who knows. to even type it, it feels like it's fucking impossible.

these are the days where i have the music, the books, the alcohol and an wicked imagination. if i was van Gogh, i'm sure i would have no ears by now. i'm supposedly blessed to have these talents. each time i hear that, the first thing that comes to my lips is FUCK YOU.

the New York Yankees flirted with perfection yesterday. Michael Pineda took a perfect game into the 7th inning. not bad to retire the first 20 batters in a row. if he could only be like that normally when he pitches. the offense opened up the game late and the Yankees won their home opener over Tampa 8-1. that's a nice way to start a homestand.

Monday Night Raw was pretty interesting last night. i was really surprised at who came over from Smackdown. i'm hoping to be just as surprised to see who goes from Raw to Smackdown tonight. it will probably take a few weeks to really see how the shows adjust to all the changes. i do love Bray Wyatt on Monday Night Raw though. i would love to see him against Finn Balor one day, especially when Finn is the "Demon". that has amazing written all over it.

A Goodbye to Girls was pretty good last night. i'm very interested to see how the series is going to end on Sunday.

The Voice was really good last night. i think i have my favorite performance of the season now.
the live episodes will finally start on Monday.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

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

the NHL playoffs start tomorrow. i'm all ready to not shave again until June. hopefully the New York Rangers have a long run in them this year.

the trash is all picked up and i believe i'm ready to go spend some quality time in the massage chair.

i have no clue when i'll be on here tomorrow. i'm guessing late afternoon.

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...
