i got a copy of Damned Dirty and Dangerous in the mail today. it's a book of poetry from Ben John Smith and John D Robinson. two words my friends, FUCKING BRILLIANT. i highly recommend checking it out. here's a few links for more info:
the New York Yankees won last night 7-3 over Detroit. they also won before the game when they made the Sonny Gray trade. i'm amazed that they have been able to rebuild the starting staff on the fly and be in first place on August 1st. they are clearly built for the now and for the future. they made two pretty big trades before the trade deadline and didn't give up any of their biggest prospects. that makes me even happier. hopefully the Yankees will win again tonight.
i thought Monday Night Raw was pretty good last night but could have been so much better.
enjoy some music:
and now some of this and that:
on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, Smackdown, Deadliest Catch, Fear(less) with Tim Ferriss and The Jim Jefferies Show. i'll watch 205 Live on WWE Network sometime tonight.
i made a little trip to the bank today. nothing quite like starting off the month with a nice big deposit. they were surprisingly busy, so i didn't get to talk to my favorite teller.
i will probably be on here tomorrow before Manchester United plays in the afternoon.
i need to get the trash picked up here and next door, so that's all for me kids.
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...
