My Bad....

I'm sorry.

There I said it.

It's been too long since I've posted regularly and I have noone to blame but myself. I can blame it on fantasy sports, my new addiction to Playstation 2, the drunken carnal debuachery that was my life last summer and fall, the soul-draining seasons for the football Giants and Yankees and any number of bad influences that I call my friends and family.

But it would be a lie. The truth is, I'm a lazy fat bastard and a poor carekeeper of the gifts the creator has given me. The only way to become a better writer is to write and read good writing. Not sit in front of the TV watching bad movies and playing video games.

Call me the Carl Pavano of bloggers. Going on the DL for months over every little boo-boo. It's got to stop.

So to anyone who still bothers to check my site, I promise to have new material far more frequently than once every month and a half. I do this because it's cheaper than therapy and enjoy being engaged with you folks. Hopefully you'll consider me worthy of a couple of minutes in your day over the next six months.

I have a question for you folks. Ever have a pretty good disappointing weekend?

What I mean is, a weekend that was enjoyable and disappointing at the same time? That was my Friday and Saturday.

I had to witness that debacle of a game in person on Friday, went to see the 1230am showing of Spiderman 3 only to be pissed off at how bad the story was (the fight scenes and CG were on point) and went to a buddy's house on Saturday to watch that horrible De La Hoya-Mayweather fight. You'd think that I'd be bummed out right?

The complete opposite actually. In each instance I had a great time (the highlights being the entire theater calling Kirsten Dunst a whore during one particular scene, the Barber Shop style arguing going between the brothers during the fight and our boy "Hennessey Man" screaming about how "countrified" hip hop has become.

This weekend I learned an important lesson...The company you keep is as important as the places you venture. Good company can make a potentially hellish time into a weekend to remember. Something I have to remind myself of the next time I decide to do a Keyser Soze imitation and go deep underground.

I'm your huckleberry.
We seem to share a few movies in common.
Now I am scared.

Welcome back Darth. I gotta admit, I miss your Yankee POV.
