Weekends be weekends, yo 

Ah... not doing much on a Sunday morning. It's nice. The course will pretty much hold except I'll be watching game one of Suns vs Spurs (finally -- the REAL playoffs are here), recording a Mosquito Circus later this afternoon (I know, finally your longing for a new installment will be satiated), and probably watching new Family Guy tonight. Otherwise? Nada. Yeah.

Some announcements:

Tuesday, May 24th catch The Wimbledons headlining at The Troubador in Los Angeles. Only $7 at the door. You'd be a fool not to go. For one, I'll be there. Two, they're awesome. Pretty sweet that if you check out the calendar section on the Troubador website, you'll see the Wimbies link there. Bitchin'.

You like plays? The theatre? Acting?! Starting this weekend through the end of June, you should check out Sight Unseen Theatre Group's 2005 Festival featuring delicious plays such as "Forget My Chrome Embrace" which delves into the delicious field of Transformers fan fiction. Oh my... yes.

Top 5 songs I can't get out of my head/have been listening to non-stop as of late:
1. A Better Son or Daughter by Rilo Kiley
2. Greetings in Braille by The Elected
3. The Blower's Daughter by Damien Rice
4. Lose You by Pete Yorn
5. Wow, She Dumb by Homegrown

And there you have it. I was lucky enough to catch last Friday's unbelievable game 6 of the Suns/Mavericks series in which Phoenix closed out the Mavs thanks to some magnificent heroics on the parts of Steve Nash and Shawn Marion. Amare (the next Charles Barkley/Karl Malone-type mega forward) fouled out with about five minutes to play in the game. Not a problem for the Suns. Steve Nash has definitely lived up to his MVP status during these playoffs and I nearly lost my senses when he drained a game-tying three pointer with five seconds left to force the game into overtime where Nash and Marion took over. Looking forward to the San Antonio series.

Also PPV-ed the FA Cup yesterday and watched with friends. The first half of Arsenal v. Manchester United was mostly stale and disappointing. In the second half and extra time, Man United dominated possession and scoring opportunities, seemingly toying with Arsenal at times, yet inexplicably unable to capitalize with a goal. They had a solid four or five chances to win. Instead, as cruel and ironic as fate could be, Arsenal prevailed due to penalty kicks. The Gunners were without question not the better team yesterday, but sometimes that's the way the cookie crumbles. High point of the match may have been hearing the Arsenal fans taunt the Man U fans by chanting "USA, USA!" referring to the take over by shifty Malcolm Glazer. You know? The American owner of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers whom Man U fans were burning in effigy because of his seizing 75% of the club largely to get himself out of debt while presumably deconstructing the club in the process? That guy.

The we all ate burgers off the grill. Mmm...
