This is totally unrelated to anything I just posted, but I just realized that it could get worse for the Cowboys (my family’s team, and mine, even though I basically don’t watch football anymore for the most part)
Ladies and gentlemen, what about a sudden introduction to the Brandon Weeden Era
I’ve mentioned before that I’m in the stages of writing a novel, mostly to see if I can in the first place. And I haven’t started it yet, mostly because I don’t think I ever appreciated how much work it is to construct a story around what you may think is a really good premise. Of course I knew that these step might be the longest and most complicated part of the novel-writing process, but before you try doing it for yourself the extent of thinking you have to pour into it isn’t properly put into perspective. I like the basic idea of the story I want to write, but compiling enough ideas and information to make an immersive atmosphere that would at least satisfy me as a writer is amazingly difficult. And that’s not to mention that in the back of my mind I’m interested in creating something that maybe the people around me would be interested in reading from start to finish.
That’s not to say that I want to write this only to gain wealth and/or attention, because I don’t. But even if I write for fun, I want to create something I’m proud of, and wouldn’t mind allowing some friends to read if they were so inclined. And until I strike upon all the particulars that will enable me to make something like that, I’m going to continue to have trouble getting the motivation to even start in the first place.
I find it funny that this year the Lakers have been tied with Michael Beasley and Tracy McGrady…and today I read an article that suggested that they will go after Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe next summer. A fan can only hope they get that lucky, right?
You critics come to pay me a visit? Misery loves company; please stay a minute! Kryptonite to a hypocrite, zip your lip, if you dishin’ but can’t take it, too busy gettin’ stoned in your glass house, to kick rocks, then you wonder why I lash out? Mr. Mathers as advertised on the flyer, so spread the word, ‘cause I’m promoting my passion till I’m passed out!

So yeah, I’m going to start just posting quotes from the music I’m listening to, and hope people like it (I have no idea if this will be the case, but it’s worth a shot I guess)
I think you have to admire the ability of a musician when they can craft a seven-and-a-half minute long song where not even a single second of it feels wasted or unnecessary. That is skill, both in songwriting and actual execution of the song
