a little poetry news to pass on. i heard back from Profane on my poetry submission from last week. they decided to pass. as luck would have it, a recent connection on LinkedIn asked me to send him some poems. so, i took my 3 favorite from those 5 rejected ones and sent them to October Hill Magazine. when i hear back from Richard, i'll pass on the verdict.
the New York Yankees got just enough pitching and offense yesterday, plus an incredible catch from Aaron Judge to defeat Tampa 3-2. they start a series back at home tonight against Kansas City.
WWE Backlash was pretty good to start off with last night. i can never get enough of Shinsuke Nakamura. plus, the tag title match was fucking great. i liked Kevin Owens vs. AJ Styles up until the ending. and i had a feeling they were going to have Jinder Mahal win the WWE title from Randy Orton, especially given that the WWE Network is now available in India. sure enough... the shocked looks on the faces in the crowd made me howl with laughter.
Veep was fucking hilarious, as usual last night.
Silicon Valley was great last night.
Last Week Tonight was spectacular, as usual.
Twin Peaks: The Return was a great mind fuck, 25 years later. i didn't really get into the show much in the early 90's, but now being much more of a fan of David Lynch, i really enjoyed parts 1 & 2 last night. i certainly can't wait for the rest.
enjoy some music:
and now some of this and that:
on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, The Voice, The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special, Gotham and Monday Night Raw.
i did watch Sweden defeat Canada yesterday in a shootout to win the 2017 World Championship. congrats to The King on an amazing gold medal game.
in a way, i suppose Boston beating Cleveland last night is the right kind of wake up call the Cavs needed. that loss should allow them to reset everything and be humble once again.
i have no clue when i'll be on here tomorrow. if i am at all, it will be late in the evening. i'm not planning on spending the night at the hospital, god knows my back would be killing me if i even tried, but i have no clue how mom's surgery is going to go. plus, she doesn't do too well while on drugs, so i know i kind of have to be there until she comes out of the haze. i tell her all the time, this is what she gets for not doing any drugs as a teenager. each time i have been put under, i've enjoyed the fuck out of it.
i hope everyone had a great weekend.
until we meet 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...
