a little poetry news to get out of the way. i heard back from Alan at The Recusant on my poetry submission from last December. they liked the poems but decided they weren't for them. he wished me best of luck getting them placed elsewhere. i will probably need it as most of the poems were written right after the last election. joy.
the New York Yankees tried to give the game away late last night. thankfully, they didn't. they beat Toronto 6-3. hopefully they will make it two in a row this afternoon.
Monday Night Raw was pretty good last night. i thought they did a decent job building for the WWE Great Balls of Fire event this Sunday.
enjoy some music:
and now some of this and that:
on the DVR tonight will be WWE Smackdown and Deadliest Catch. i'll watch 205 Live sometime tonight on WWE Network.
i imagine at some point tonight i'll probably watch some fireworks on television as well.
i figure most of today is going to be laundry, watching baseball, cooking hot dogs and playing a passive/aggressive game with my mother. can't fucking wait.
i hope everyone has a great 4th of July. enjoy the fireworks, the beaches, the alcohol, whatever the fuck you're doing to celebrate whatever you are celebrating today.
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...

"The founders of a new colony, whatever Utopia of human virtue and happiness they might originally project, have invariably recognized it among their earliest practical necessities to allot a portion of the virgin soil as a cemetery, and another portion as the site of a prison." - Nathaniel Hawthorne
