for all you portlanders wondering why everyone not sporting a handlebar mustache is extra enthusiastic today, here is your two minute recap. nothing beats a buzzer beater to advance to the next round of the playoffs.
just noticed it was kentucky derby day. if you have absolutely no life and a love of horse racing you can watch the four hours of coverage on nbcsn prior to the three hours of coverage on nbc proper. somewhere in there is a two minute race by horses owned by saudi billionaires unlike the soccer i will be watching where the billionaire owners are from dubai. at least no ones whipping them on the field of play just those unfortunates out of frame building the stadiums. ok, thats in qatar for the world cup in 2022 but you dont care anyway so whats the difference.

Mortimer Duke: Do you really believe I would have a *nigger* run our family business, Randolph?
i couldnt come up with the third person in a potential group that was named as an interested party to purchase the la clippers. the two i recalled were oprah and david geffen, two heavy hitters in their own right but the third who escaped me was larry ellison who could by and sell the other two partners a number of times over although just suggesting that would probably disqualify him from contention.
Enjoyed Only Lovers Left Alive and The Railway Man.
wow. very cool 3d printing pen.
LIX 3D printing pen has the similar function as 3D printers. It melts and cools coloured plastic, letting you create rigid and freestanding structures
