Today President Putin announced that Russian Security services kept a tight leash on 700 suspected terrorists during the 2014 Winter Olympics. The bodies of these suspects may be claimed by family members for 200 drachmas a piece. Attached leashes cost 6 drachmas extra.
Beatles, Stones, the Who, Steely Dan, Beethoven (he ROCKS!), Queen… I’m trying to think of anybody under 40… I heard Linkin Park once, I thought they were pretty good. Radiohead? Snoop Dogg – love him, hate him, throw him under the prison for the rest of his life, he has crafted a convincing persona. Snoop, Chuck D. Eminem, maybe a couple more rappers have done that, and I THINK that is what a rapper has to do to achieve lasting success.. They all can’t be the biggest baddass on the block. Branch out – create more original “characters” to play.
I’m worried about the Sochi Games. So is Sochi and Putiin. She and the russian Prez have known each other since since Dr. Putin asked embarassing questions to Sochi after she alledgedly was deemed insane by the old Soviet courts. They’ve changed – everybody’s better now. Putin has given up- he said this morning on early morning russian radio ballet show. Yes, they radiocast ballet in Russia: you think they’re fat american pigs?
If you are watching an ice racing event in Sochi and you pull out a cell phone, 200 RUssian troops are going to empty their clips into you and the ten people sitting around you. Then the Russian troops are going to fire 200 pounds into each other because how do they know the soldier next to him is a terrorist?
I’m 65 years of age which means I am old enough to run for president. PLANK #!: Do something about this terrorist bullshit. PLANK#2: Do you know that dinosaurs are growing inside the earth and they want eat the green and leafy vegetables we have growing on our surface. They don’t care about peanuts or that crap. We got to do something about this bullshit.
“Awesome sauce!” I heard it the other day, I can’t remember where. A person was responding in a positive way for some reason. From my very birth I had hoped to travel through this wicked life without hearing the phrase “awesome sauce”. My hope has been squashed. Has my life been worthwhile despite this? Of course… because suicide is a sin.
My first grandchild, William Heath IV was born today at 2:15 pm EST in Carrollton, GA. He’s 19.5 inches tall with his shoes off and 7 lb, 2 oz soaking wet. Pictures forthcoming. My daughter Amanda is in fine spirits despite all she went through today. My son-in-law Will looks like he got hit with a 2×4. I know the feeling!
THE SECOND COMING
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: a waste of desert sand;
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
William Butler Yeats
If he doesn’t already, Tony Romo should see a psychologist. This deep-seated NEED to choke is motivated by some black hole in his psyche — calling him every shade of m/f, denouncing him before God and country won’t help him. He can’t help it. He needs intensive pychological help starting now and continuing through the off-season, which will start in a couple of weeks. Whatever happens, whether the Cowboys fire him and he gets picked up by another team, he needs his head shrunk if he is to continue playing NFL football.
