you were probably starting to think that it would take an act of God to get me to return to Xanga, right?… well i certainly didn’t intend to stop updating… just that life got a bit busy and my never ending struggle with the demons of procrastination and time wasting often wins out… but hey, it’s not an act of God (directly at least)… it’s an act of Carman…

NEW CARMAN!

that’s right… a NEW CARMAN ALBUM… 2007 will be complete… unfortunately, this clipping is the only information that i have right now, but i’ll be dilligently watching for more…

now you may wonder why Carman would even consider releasing a new album, but i think (and this is pure unfounded speculation on my part) that it has something to do with the success of My Name is Earl and the misheard word, “Karma”… (Carman is what, 60 years old now? His hearing has gotta be going, right?)… Anyway, it was probably something like Carman striking while the iron was hot… hey, i got a whole show dedicated to me on TV… it’s all about how some dude discovers Carman (Karma)… just a thought…

Anyway… so there are som other reasons why i’ve been a bit hesitant to update here as well involving Miranda and certain lurkers with ill intentions… but hey, i’m back for now and i’ve got a LOT to talk about… i just need to carve out some time…

i will talk a bit about the NBA Finals… which we’re in the middle of right now and which will be over tomorrow night… that’s right, the Spurs are going to complete their sweep of the Cavs tomorrow night… it’s sad really… the first time i’ve watched the NBA in probably 5 yeaars or so and even though i’m watching, it’s not interesting enough for me to care a bit about it… To be fair, part of me was/is rooting for the Cavs because they’re such the underdogs… but the Spurs, well, they’re a way better team and the key is that they’re a team… and their style of play, which isn’t really too marketable, is better for the game of basketball…

i would’ve rather seen any number of teams – Suns, Nets, Warriors, Nuggets, Mavericks, etc – in the finals to be honest… but hey, this series represents the epic battle between superstar led “team” and an actual team… and the results are clear… also clear is that “smooth” is long gone from the NBA vernacular… everyone is so awkward on the court these days… they may play well, but they don’t look good doing it… where’s the calm, cool, composure that i grew up admiring in NBA players?….

oh well… the Cavs played their hearts out for the first half yesterday… they left everything on the floor and walked away trailing by 2… that’s as close as they’ll ever get… tomorrow, i’d bet they lose by 13 or 15 points… game set match… the Cavs lose, but the NBA has already lost long ago…

okay, it’s time to move on… i’ll mosey on back and start knocking out some entries sometime soon…

peace… love… bdg…
