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.

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...
