IU Basketball

February 18, 2008

I’m just finished watching the IU – Michigan State Game from Saturday night (Tivo) and wow, Eric Gordon is good. Really good. Every once in a while, he shifts into a gear that’s two or three times faster than the other nine guys on the court.

But our coach is a crook.

And Purdue is in first place.

Funeral Blues

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He is Dead.
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong.

The stars are not wanted now; put out every one,
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun,
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the woods;
For nothing now can ever come to any good.

–W.H. Auden

A good friend of mine passed away suddenly last Friday. Best guy around.

Bad (perfect) timing on this shot. Kinda like “Country Bumpkins go to Europe”.


I don’t have the words to explain how much I already miss him.

Number of hits on Google.

Dutch Rock Star: 1,360,000

British Rock Star: 12,000,000

American Rock Star: 62,400,000

So I guess this isn’t surprising

Nothing I can say will make any of this remotely better. I just hope all involved can find a bit of peace in the midst of what has to be hell.
