the richest fight in all of human history

Champion boxer Floyd Mayweather will take on MMA scrapper Conor McGregor on August 26th.

The purses could be as high as $400 million for Mayweather and $127 million for McGregor.

To be fought as strictly boxing, even at 40 years old 
Mayweather enjoys a monsterous advantage.

But don’t count McGregor out.

He’s a dozen years younger and he's insane.

thud life

The whole building jumped.

Nervously close to my window.

So what made the thud?

The boys stacked it too high.

And the pile fell over.

this is it

The petty, sniveling, nasty, selfish, loathesome,
 lying way of being Trump.

When it all comes down around him, 

it will all come down to this.

mermaids and minotaurs


digital valuation is getting weird

Spotify gives music away free to entice traffic, with a projected ipo of $13billion.

Imagine if the old Virgin tried the same idea back then.

Give the CD’s away free and launch an ipo based on the number of people who came in to get the free music.

That’s what Spotify did while losing more than half-a-billion dollars last year.

we got a lot of rain

Passionate Kisses

Is it too much to ask?
I want a comfortable bed that won't hurt my back.

Food to fill me up
And warm clothes and all that stuff.

Shouldn't I have this?
Shouldn't I have this?
Shouldn't I have all of this, and
Passionate kisses!
Passionate kisses, whoa-oh-oh
Passionate kisses from you?

Is it too much to demand
I want a full house and a rock-'n'-roll band.

Pens that won't run out of ink
And cool quiet, and time to think.

Shouldn't I have this?
Shouldn't I have this?
Shouldn't I have all of this, and
Passionate kisses
Passionate kisses, whoa-oh-oh
Passionate kisses from you?

Do I want too much?
Am I going overboard to want that touch?
I shout it out to the night
Give me what I deserve 'cause it's my right!

like a room without a roof

4 years ago, with an iPhone 5s

The three men and three women were sentenced to 6 months and 91 lashes.

The sentences were suspended if they offend the Islamic Republic no further within the next 36 months.

school's out....forever

The Archdiocese of New York constructed the St. Jerome School in 1871.

It was here 15 years before our ClockTower.

It is constructed in Victorian red brick with sandstone trim.

By the 1930’s Puerto Rican families moved up, displacing German and Irish immigrants, and soon they were dependent on the school.

For over 140 years Mott Haven graduated over 140 classes of immigrant children.

Many of their grandparents and parents went here.

Then the chuuch got caught up in expensive legal settlements.

And that was that.
