american women start their world cup defense tomorrow. kevin durant comes back from injury to try and save the warriors season tonight. rafa nadal won his 12th french open yesterday. the sports never sleeps only my interest in informing you when you are already drowning in an ocean of information.

Seems like HUGE in France might be Dave’s kind of TV, what with the comedy theme and all.

I’ll be back!!

why didnt anyone tell me deadwood: the movie was tonight at 8? now ill never get the chance to watch it. until tomorrow. or i could download it illegally in about an hour. but im still mad. im gonna blame linda. its not like she reads the site anymore. she'll never know. #worsethan9/11

Ten parts for surf n turf pasta for the greatest mother on earth!!

was having a rare drink out around the corner with my neighbor last night. the subject of the newly minted multiplex two blocks away came up and with little prodding i was convinced to see the 10pm 3d showing of the new avengers movie. i think the last movie i saw in a theater was the gore vidal v william f buckley documentary 2 or 3 years ago. so this was a treat (literally, my neighbor paid. he is nothing if not generous.) and my first 3d experience which seems like a good one all things considered.

it was pretty good, definitely overlong and leaning a little in to the sentimentality as this was THE END GAME though with a lot of humor to fill in the gaps prior to the inevitable apocalyptic showdown. i dont know what marvel has slated going forward other than another guardians of the galaxy installment which is teased at the end of this, but a-list character arcs were terminated in this though it being a fantasy world no one is ever really dead, or someone else can rise up or be anointed to take on the heros mantle. they also gave a brief glimpse at what an all female driven avengers type movie might look like but that may have been fan service as theres been some persistent chatter about that being a future avenue marvel needs to pursue. 

the real stars were the oversized electric reclining chairs with footrests and the stadium seating especially for a movie of this girth. though at $22 for a 3d ticket (ouch!) they should really throw in a tub of popcorn and a catheter tube.

last go round...

this came out of a perfectly sealed box

Looks like tomorrow I need to make my first romesco.....

First potato and asparagus arrived!!

We really enjoyed Ozark on Netflix. Now we need something new...

i joined the criterion collection Chanel as a charter member for one year renewable at $90 bucks. Anyone else join? Enrollment is still open of course at a slightly higher rate. 

Wow, fire at Notre-Dame de Paris looks catastrophic; so sad. Not even a thousand years old.

remember when we all talked about moving to butte? good times, or times, at least.

could be one of those legendary tv days that youll remember for the rest of your life week. liverpool v chelsea as liverpool fight to stay 1 point back of manchester city with 5 games to go. pretty good.  4 first round playoff basketball matches.... ehh.  good for a channel surf or two. playoff hockey for whoever watches that and baseball for the fox news set. but leading the sporting news as he somehow still manages to do is tiger woods who is currently in second at the start of the final round of the masters. so strap on the ol' jim nance feedbag as they pushed starting times up for weather related reasons. lets see if he can still be in the hunt by the 1130 kickoff of the liverpool game.

and, oh yeah, final truncated season of game of thrones at 9. so excited my toes are almost wiggling. where is a bottle of nembutal when you need it. seriously, i need i bottle of nembutal. just boning up on my barbituates. what a great era that must have been to be alive sleepwalking through life.

I have Pho for breakfast 2 or 3 times a week.....

Linda did not like my 1/2 homemade breakfast today....
