Perhaps this is the week where I take the time to smell the roses

11 May

Tonight I’ll shave the mountain
I’ll cut the hearts from pharoahs
I pull the road off of the rise
tear the memories from my eyes
and in the morning I’ll be gone
I drink 1000 shipwrecks
tonight I’ll steal your paychecks
I paint the sheets across my bed
the birds will all fly from my head
and in the morning I’ll be gone
take every dream that’s breathing
find every boot that’s leaving
shoot all the lights in the cafe
and in the morning I’ll be gone
I bet 1000 dollars
I have a french companion
I tie myself below the deck
I pull the rope around my neck
and in the morning I’ll be gone
it takes a life to win her
there is a drum of bourbon
800 pounds of nitro
his boots are thunder as he plays
theree is a stone inside it
tonight his bones will ride it
I’ll need a tent to hide it
and in the morning I’ll be gone
and in the morning I’ll be gone
and in the morning I’ll be gone

Geeking out……….on the playoffs

4 May

Just learned how to play this today when I was re-watching the Memphis vs. Los Angeles game from last night…..pretty easy actually C to E to A then F to E to A to C….

speaking of the Playoffs…Memphis looks nasty. If they go into the next round versus the Spurs healthy, I think they should be the favorites in that match-up. I think they will dispose of the Thunder in 5 games at the most. Durant will get his, but I don’t see anyone stepping up consistently to help KD out.

I think the Grizz could even make the Heat work for it in the finals if they can find a way to get the ball up the court.
For the Champion being a foregone conclusion (barring major injury to Lebron), it has still been an entertaining playoffs. I may have to see if I can figure out how to attend a game at the Oracle… be continued……..

I Heard the News Today Oh Boy…..

Spent that night last year longboarding around downtown Lawrence pondering the direction of my life……
and here I am again ……figuring out the next step

Man this Oakland crowd be getting me hype!
I would pay an absurd amount of money to go to a home game at the Oracle for next round’s matchup.
I lived there in ’07 when they went on that improbable playoff run capped by this dunk:

I had to run out of the restaurant I was watching it at because I was screaming so loud.
They got knocked out that round by Utah but it was a very fun two weeks, the whole Ba Area was electrified. I worked at this restaurant in Berkeley right next to where the Mavericks were staying and a few of them came in for breakfast. I got to shoot the shit with Dasagna Diop, and former Maverick great, Brad Davis the morning of game 6.

Foggy mornings, sunny afternoon walks in the hills with my buddy Adrian, who held similar tastes in music, women, and sports; that’s what I think about when I watch these Warriors play at the Oracle. Brings back so many good memories. Most fun team to watch this playoffs in my opinion. They will probably get bounced in the same fashion as that’07 team but I will still do everything in my power to watch every minute of the next round against the Spurs.
