a productive laundry day...

i have my last load of clothes in the dryer. it was sunny today, so my arthritis wasn't flaring while trying to fold clothes. good times.

some poetry news and shit to get to first today. i wrote 10 poems yesterday while mom was having her physical therapy session. this session had to do with her shoulder. (it's in the process of freezing and there is an issue with the rotator cuff) i typed the 10 poems up last night and really like them. that brings me up to 88 poems for the month of February. i think i will probably get to 100 before the month is over.

i also heard back from Dan at Loch Raven Review on my poetry submission from back in December 2018. they decided to pass on the 6 poems i sent. i'll laugh when i get all of those published someplace else.

The Masked Singer was crazy last night. i got both of the singers that got eliminated correct. i'm pretty sure i know the 3 that are left as well.

You're The Worst was fucking hilarious last night.

Drop the Mic was pretty good last night.

NXT was really good last night.

NXT UK was really good last night as well.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, Will & Grace, Gotham, Lip Sync Battle and Desus & Mero.

the New York Rangers play tonight at home against Minnesota. the trade deadline is in 4 days.

i did listen to episode 226 of Notsam Wrestling this morning. you can find that by going here:

about 5 inches of snow, joy...

the guys that shoveled us out this morning said we got around 5 inches of snow overnight. i was hoping it would be melting by now, but it isn't. so, that should be a fun drive to take mom to physical therapy this afternoon.

the Dayton Flyers had a 19 point lead last night at Davidson. they did everything possible to piss that lead away. it's so fucking obvious that Dayton's coach doesn't have a killer instinct at all. the goal when you're up 19 on the road in the second half should be to do everything possible to make that lead 30. instead, Dayton chose to hold the ball, bleed the clock and take themselves out of any rhythm. just so fucking stupid. Davidson eventually tied the game and considering their home winning streak, probably should have won. Josh Cunningham made a free throw with 2.2 seconds left in the game as Dayton won, 74-73.

the New York Rangers got 43 saves from The King last night and won at Carolina, 2-1.

Smackdown was really good last night.

205 Live was good last night as well.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, The Masked Singer, You're The Worst and Drop the Mic. i'll watch NXT and NXT UK sometime tonight on WWE Network.

i will probably watch some of Duke vs. North Carolina tonight. if they both play to their potential, that should be an amazing college basketball game.

just a little busy...

i wanted to start this blog way earlier today, but with a big ass storm coming, i had to get some shit done today rather than tomorrow. i'm really thankful mom's ct scan didn't go that long at all. that gave me the chance to type up poems, go to the bank and get the trash done all before the storm. but, since Dayton plays Davidson here in about 20 minutes, there's no damn way this blog is going to be done before the game starts. so, you'll get the slightly distracted poet today.

i typed up the 11 poems i wrote yesterday late last night. i wrote 13 poems today while mom was having her ct scan. i typed those up after lunch at Waffle House. out of the 24, i do think i have some winners. i really should try to get another batch ready before the end of the month.

Monday Night Raw was very good last night. i loved seeing the guys from NXT up there and see them winning as well.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

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

the Dayton Flyers play at Davidson tonight. i'd love to see Dayton win but i'm not counting on it.

the New York Rangers play tonight at Carolina. i'd love to see the Rangers win, but i'm not counting on that either.

i'm running on 4 hours of sleep...

i often joke about how i will sleep when i am dead. today is one of those days when it is no fucking joke. i got to bed at 5 this morning and was up a little after 9. took mom to her 2 appointments today, wrote 11 poems while waiting at physical therapy and now i'm trying to get a blog done before wrestling comes on. i figure at some point, exhaustion will set in. or maybe not.

the New York Rangers lost yesterday at Pittsburgh 6-5. it was an entertaining game, and i couldn't give two shits if the Rangers win or lose anymore this season. my mind is more fixed on who are they going to trade at the trade deadline 7 days from now.

WWE Elimination Chamber was really good last night. i love who they made the first female tag team champions. i love that Finn Balor won the Intercontinental championship. i love that The Miz and Shane lost the Smackdown tag team titles, and i absolutely loved Daniel Bryan keeping the WWE Championship. Kofi Kingston was amazing again in the main event. and i fucking love that The Man showed up and beat the shit out of Charlotte and Ronda Rousey.

Total Bellas was pretty good last night.

True Detective was great last night. i fucking can't wait for the season finale next week.

Crashing was good last night.

High Maintenance was excellent last night.

Last Week Tonight was fucking hilarious as usual. so happy that the show is back.

Shameless was really good last night, especially the ending.

Black Monday was really, really good last night.

SMILF was better than usual last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

nothing on the DVR tonight. i'll be watching Monday Night Raw for most of the evening.

i didn't get to see any of the game, but Manchester United did defeat Chelsea today, 2-0 in the FA Cup. Ole is the first manager to win at Chelsea since Sir Alex. this puts United in the quarterfinals against Wolves. that won't be an easy trip. i do love the response from the team after losing to PSG. next will be a match at home against Liverpool.

it snowed for most of today. thankfully, it didn't really accumulate.

i will be on here hopefully before Dayton plays at Davidson tomorrow. mom has a scan tomorrow that is supposed to take maybe 3 hours or so. this is to check what her MRI showed. i'm hoping it goes well and we don't have a fucking cancer scare to deal with now. good times.

so, the neck gets better and the back gets worse...

i spent most of yesterday in my massage chair, trying to loosen up my neck. eventually, i did get it loose, but of course, my back was then hurting. it never fails. i got both calmed down enough to get about 5 hours of sleep last night. good times.

i turned off the Dayton Flyers game yesterday when they were down by 22 against VCU. i did follow the score and when Dayton started making their comeback, i never turned back to the game. superstition was running the show now. Dayton did come all the way back but of course, ended up losing to VCU, 69-68. that pretty much eliminates Dayton from having a chance to win the conference now. so, i guess the goal will be to finish in the top 4. that should be doable, even though you can tell they badly miss Trey Landers. and given the brace he was wearing on his shoulder yesterday, i have no clue when he will be back.

i did watch most of the NBA All-Star Saturday Night festivities. the slam dunk contest was better than the last few years. i loved that Steph Curry lost the 3 point shootout and i always love when a big man wins the skills competition.

Saturday Night Live was pretty good last night.

ROH was very good last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Total Bellas, True Detective, Crashing, High Maintenance, Last Week Tonight, Shameless, Black Monday and SMILF. i'll be watching WWE Elimination Chamber for most of the evening on WWE Network.

i doubt i watch much of the NBA All-Star game tonight or the Daytona 500 this afternoon.

the New York Rangers play this afternoon at Pittsburgh. i'd love to see the Rangers win today, but i'm not expecting them to.

sometimes the pills stop working

so today is the second day in a row my neck feels like shit. i was hoping the pill i take for the pinched nerve in my neck 3 times a day would work last night when i added a little heat on my neck. no luck. i basically had to drink alcohol last night to sleep at all. less than 5 measly hours. needless to say, i'm not going to the basketball game today.

the New York Rangers won last night in Buffalo, 6-2.

NJPW was pretty good last night.

WOW was good last night.

Real Time with Bill Maher was excellent last night.

2 Dope Queens was really good last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Saturday Night Live and ROH. i'll probably watch the NBA All-Star Saturday Night events for most of the night (3 point contest, dunk contest, etc.)

the Dayton Flyers play today at home against VCU. Dayton is going to be missing Trey Landers, who hurt his shoulder in practice this week. i'll watch the game from home, but i figure VCU will probably win.

sometimes the pain starts at the base of the neck...

i usually can know right when i wake up in the morning, how the day is going to be for me physically. i don't think i have had a good night of sleep in over 30 years. i know if i wake up in pain, it's going to be a long day. today was one of those days. but, like most of my Fridays anymore, there was shit to get done. and i know one thing, the older i get, the harder it is for me to still find pleasure in the pain.

i did get the 9 poems i wrote yesterday at mom's physical therapy typed up this morning. i really liked most of them. that puts me at 54 poems through Feb. 15th. that's a pretty insane pace.

the grocery store today wasn't too bad. my neck was killing me for most of the time in there. and i'm sure there were some beautiful women in there, but my pain wasn't exactly allowing me to browse. i kept everything under $100, at least for the food. my prescription was $30 and a bottle of gin and Jack Daniels Honey ran me over $40. but, i need to keep the bar stocked.

Vice News Tonight had another great week of shows.

Lip Sync Battle was pretty good last night.

Will & Grace was hilarious last night.

Gotham was fucking great last night, especially the ending.

enjoy some music:

the weather has shifted back to winter today after being almost 50 degrees yesterday. i guess the water problem here has been solved for now. of course, people were still buying bottled water at the store like a fucking hurricane was coming or something.

part of me really wants to go to the Dayton Flyers game tomorrow against VCU. part of me also knows that with this weather change, there's a decent chance i'm going to feel like shit tomorrow and just watch the game on television. hopefully, i wake up tomorrow and feel better. (stop laughing)

i hope everyone has a great weekend.

happy valentine's day

i think for the majority of my adult life, i haven't been in a relationship with anyone on Valentine's Day. now, while i probably have saved thousands of dollars, i'm not exactly happy that loneliness has become a natural feeling for me. but, shit happens.

so, i guess sometime after i got my shower done yesterday, there was a huge water main break in the county i live in. the whole country was under a boil advisory. shit, i think it still is. i'm hoping this is a wake up call to all these assholes around here that the infrastructure needs to be fucking updated badly. of course, when you are surrounded by Republicans, they want shit but they don't want to pay for it. i will always maintain that people would pay higher taxes if they actually knew what the money was being used for. god forbid, people would have to pay more but got free higher education, free healthcare, better roads and an infrastructure that wouldn't fail every time there is a big rain storm. but that will never happen because these assholes still believe that capitalism isn't fucking them over. fucking fools.

NXT was really good last night.

NXT UK was really good yesterday as well.

The Masked Singer was crazy last night. another week i was correct again.

the finale of Celebrity Big Brother went the way i was expecting once Ricky made the wrong choice at the end. i'm not sure why he thought he could win against Tamar. and i wasn't surprised when she got every vote at the end. i'm really happy Tom Green won the favorite house guest.

You're the Worst was hilarious last night.

Drop the Mic was very good last night.

a howling wind and how women fall in love with me in two days...

today has been one of those days where the cynical bastard inside of me is laughing his head off. i've had 3 different women tell me they are in love with me today. mind you, none of these women have ever talked to me or even met me in person yet. i have told all 3 of them, there is no need to set yourself up for disappointment. i suppose, time will tell.

the wind has been howling since last night. it was so bad last night, i put the trash back inside the garage. thankfully, i got up early enough this morning that i got it back down to the curb in time to be picked up. we only got a dusting of snow, so that's good. but the windchill is probably in the teens or worse. good times.

the New York Rangers lost last night at Winnipeg, 4-3.

Smackdown was very good last night.

205 Live was pretty good last night as well.

enjoy some music:

not exactly what i was hoping for...

so when Manchester United started the game today, i was really hoping the positive momentum they have gained in the last few weeks was going to propel them. instead, PSG came out and showed that United still has a ways to go when competing against the top clubs in the world. it doesn't help either when the ref is giving out cards left and right in the first half. PSG won the game 2-0. those two away goals are huge when you think about it. but, when United goes go to Paris for the second leg, i'm hoping they play with some urgency, knowing their Champions League lives are at stake. i do like what Ole said after the match though. when told about the mountain in front of the team now, he replied they are there to be climbed.

we didn't get as much rain as i thought we were going to get today. but, it has also turned over to snow before i thought it was going to as well. thankfully, i got the trash out before it got too bad.

i thought Monday Night Raw was ok in spots last night. i don't want to shit on the end of it, when Vince took Becky Lynch out of the main event against Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania and inserted Charlotte Flair instead. i want to see what happens over the next few weeks. i think i know where it is going (triple threat match) but i'm hoping it leads to something bigger (power struggle between Vince and HHH perhaps). most of the show was forgettable, which is sad considering they have the Elimination Chamber ppv coming up on Sunday.

Celebrity Big Brother last night was just a recap episode of the season. the finale is on Wednesday.

i did get those 12 poems i wrote typed up this morning. i really like a few of them. i probably should get another round of submissions ready here soon.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

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

and then came the rain...

before i get into another rant about how the rain fucks with my entire being, i have some poetry news to get to...

i finally send out the poems i talked about last week. i sent out 22 poems earlier today. 3 each to Red Eft Review and The Beatnik Cowboy; 5 each to Synchronized Chaos (already accepted) and Fourth & Sycamore; 6 poems to Record Magazine. when i hear back from these places, i will pass along the verdicts.

i also wrote 12 poems today while mom was doing her physical therapy. i'll probably type those up sometime tonight.

the New York Rangers won last night over Toronto, 4-1. the story of the game was the Rangers backup goalie stopping 55 fucking shots on his 23rd birthday.

the Grammy Awards were pretty good last night. a little long, but pretty good.

True Detective was fucking great last night.

Crashing was pretty funny last night.

High Maintenance was great last night.

Shameless was excellent last night.

Black Monday was fucking hilarious last night.

SMILF was pretty good last night.

Total Bellas was good last night.

the snow stopped yesterday and eventually changed over to freezing rain. that became just rain this afternoon. we're supposed to get maybe 1 to 2 inches of rain tomorrow. oh joy.

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight and Celebrity Big Brother. i'll watch Monday Night Raw for most of the evening.
