THE RARE WEEKEND BLOG POST.

Did y'all catch a glimpse of the opening ceremony of the Olympics? MY GOD MAN! HAVE U EVER SEEN A MORE GORGEOUS COLORFUL SEAMLESS PERFECT ASTOUNDING AWESOME SPECTACLE?! China wanted to impress the world, and did more than just that; she effectively proclaimed, "I AM A WORLD POWER, HEAR ME ROAR YE WESTERN BASTARDS!" Look at these pictures! That dorky Michael Phelps is looking quite handsome to me lately; go Team U.S.A!

I almost went to Las Vegas this weekend, but decided against it due to financial and time reasons. I still look forward to going though, when it gets cheaper later this year, so I can go check out the high-class ritzy Wynn hotel/casino and to go see the Love show at The Mirage of course! Speaking of The Beatles, I caught this amazing tribute band called Rain on PBS last night, and they eerily did sound and play just like the group; perhaps even better than the originals! LOL!

Don't mean to end the post on a downer note, but a frequent lush who
m I often saw at local bars here and there died this past week of melanoma, which sounds like a most unpleasant terrible disease. I also found out another bar employee whom I genuinely like is dying of cancer, but he has told only a few people close to him. That just makes me sad really. And Bernie Mac, who was truly genuinely funny is gone:

Besides those pesky human rights and environmental abuses, we all knew China could put on a good opening ceremony. Too bad they didn't do a tribute to the People Republic of Wal-Mart.
