Moments

I am saving the Orland Bloom vs. Justin Bieber celebrity death match for a later time.  Mostly because I haven't written it yet.  Instead, you get this thing here that might be considered poetry.  I consider it part of a free writing session I did earlier today.

Moments.  Those brief, tiny moments of time that provided light.

Moments. 
Frozen in the dark abyss that is a memory. 
Many moments.  Many memories. 
The bottle of wine is nearly empty. 
Save for that last memory of a silhouette in the morning
there is nothing left.

Moments
lost within the soul
Swallowed whole
vomited into the atmosphere.

Moments. 
The days go by
Blended together like the last margarita of the night. 
Striving for something more,
haunted by the dreams of a broken mirror of the past. 
Look into the mirror. 
A fractured reflection of what might have been.

Moments. 
Fleeting
whisked away in the night. 
Happiness. 
Joy. 
Loneliness. 
Anger. 
Tears. 
Silence. 
A beginning.

Moments. 
A brief glimpse into what is desired. 
A moment. 
To let it go
or welcome it in. 
No longer live in the gray. 
Live in the black and white.

The Bromance of Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Matthew Lillard

In the late 1990's and early 2000's, there was no greater bromance than that between Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Matthew Lillard. The two of them appeared in no less than five movies together in a five year time span. These two were meant to be. Two young stars destined to take the world by storm as a team. Hanging out, meeting women, and enjoying the good life. And then, just like that, stardom was ripped away from them. Though they continued to work, they would never appear together again in a film.
What was it that pulled them apart? Did they just choose to go different directions? Was it Sarah Michelle Gellar that drove a wedge between these two? While Lillard eventually went on to star in an Oscar nominated film (The Descendants), Prinze, Jr. went on to write for the WWE and occasionally show up as a guest star on television shows. While both have tried, neither has recaptured that joy that once displayed on screen. Tonight, I want to dutifully remind the world of t…

"Pissing our pants yet? Boy, do I have a feeling we're getting close."- Negan, The Walking Dead

And people thought Ramsay Bolton was sadistic.


The much anticipated season seven premiere of The Walking Dead hit the airwaves last Sunday. Boy, was it a doozy.
I am not going to spend much time on what side of the liked/didn't like it/I'm never watching again spectrum I fall in. I will say that I was enraptured, on the edge of my seat for nearly the entire one hour, six minutes (including commercials) of the episode. This was an episode that filled me with a sense of existential dread for the characters inhabiting The Walking Dead world. It is a feeling that is still with me nearly two days later.
As a disclaimer, I am only through the first ten volumes of the graphic novels. I have yet to reach the Negan arc. I am also on the side of the court that didn't m…

NFL Referees Fail Cam Newton, Fans

If the NFL is serious about the safety of players and finding ways to limit concussions, the referees in last night's Denver Broncos/Carolina Panthers game had a funny way of showing it.
Instead of talking about what a great rematch of the Super Bowl these two teams put on, much of the focus was placed on the amount of hits Cam Newton took to the helmet last night.
And rightfully so.
There were at least three occasions during the course of the game in which Newton was on the receiving end of helmet-to-helmet hits. 
These hits were not of the "blink and you miss it" variety of hits. They were in the course of game action, delivered to Newton after a throw or in the midst of being tackled.
The Broncos were flagged for this infraction once.
Once.
For a league that is looking to protect its players, especially quarterbacks, these calls were not simply "mistakes" or "errors" by the referees. And to right it off as such is simply another loosening thread o…
