Kentucky v. Kansas v. Smash

Smash. Have I mentioned lately just how much I hate plumbing, and not just because I suck at it so bad, or the smell? For me, it's that you get 1 chance - 1 chance - to get it right, or you have to start all over again. Well, it's not like I've got anything better to do.

oops. almost forgot. when the fray played the anthem, the lead guitar player played a note in the 3rd chord that not only didn't belong in the chord but it also didn't belong in our universe as we know it.

also, i'm reminded how i continue to marvel at modern broadway's deft ability to blur the distinction between singing and yelling. and i suspect someone's gonna be punched in the head tonight, on both channels.

Blue Moon of Kentucky keep on shinin'...

These kids are amazingly talented. Kansas will make a push, but I don't think they'll have enough. Calipari has this team coached up.

If you're going to try to duplicate Marvin Gaye's national anthem, you better get it right. They didn't. That was fuckin' brutal.

Plumbing. That's why those people make as much as lawyers.

yeah, i thought kansas might take a run at them, but we knew this thing was over after the first 5 minutes.

the office: amy ryan's first episode. classic.

i won't be starting completely over tomorrow, but pretty close to it. i need to work on my attitude more.

Smash is best when it stays out of Julia's personal life. That kid who plays her son sucks, and the story is so inconsistent. The adoption! Which I want! But then maybe I don't! But I demand it! And an obvious "marilyn becoming marilyn" storyline didn't help, but Megan Hilty gets better each week. At least it beats last week's ep. If I can't fall asleep. I'll be catching up on Mad Men. Hearts and flowers to you all.

"deft ability to blur the distinction between singing and yelling." Oh my yes. Not just Bway.

Cool, and here I thought that "it sucked," without any depth of ear from which to describe how. I went to be shortly after hearing it. I know, I know, the championship and all, but Christ, you couldn't have paid me enough to go to Kansas or Kentucky. The states even, never mind the schools.

I tell ya, my plumbing woulda been okay, if I had the option to go two inches right or left on them there drains. And, like, I had the option, IYKWIMAITYD. I was highly embarrassed at the last leaky fitting though. (Also, this little "grout saw" I bought was kickass at cleaning quite a lot fo the problem up.)
