Archive for April, 2011

March 15, 2010-March 16, 2010 – I was hearing about the newest inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  There were some strange selections this year and also mentions of some deserving acts that still hadn’t been inducted, like Aerosmith.  Busta Rhymes had been inducted this year, which made me think that you only had to be a major act for ten years before induction.  I thought before that it was longer.  There was a concert to coincide with the announcement of the new inductees.  I was listening to someone recap the concert.  There had been a Kanye West moment.  Kanye ran up on stage while someone else was singing, took the mic, and started performing himself.  I thought, “Oh, so that was supposed to happen.”  Then the guy explained that Kanye wasn’t supposed to take the mic at that point, so it was a real Kanye moment.  Then I heard that Heart had been inducted this year, or that they still weren’t inducted (but they should have been).  I was pretty sure that your career had to have started 25 years ago before you could be inducted.  I was wondering why Aeromsith wasn’t in.  They had emerged in the seventies.  Their career was about thirty-five years old.  Did I have my dates mixed up?  There seemed to be a tournament going on to coincide with the new inductions into the Basketball Hall of Fame.  The final was happening now.  It was a hockey game.  It seemed ill-prepared, as it was just a 2-vs.-1 game, Jason and I vs. Erin.  Brenton was also there.  Erin somehow managed to get the puck in on an open net.  It didn’t make sense that there was an open net.  But I felt like we were still in control of the game.

Almost Third Base

November 8, 2009-November 9, 2009 – I was playing third base in a baseball game.  I think it might have been a major league game.  Whether or not it was a major league game, the team I was playing on was way above my experience level.  A ground ball came my way.  I fielded it well and made the throw.  It was a good effort, but I think it was a little short.

April 19, 2009-April 20, 2009 – I was at home, hanging out in the living room.  A 1972 NBA Finals game was on TV.  I had to get a close look to see who was playing.  It was the Knicks versus the Pacers.  The Finals matchup was an NBA versus an ABA team.  I asked Dad if he knew how this game went, but he didn’t really seem to know.  About a quarter or so into the game, it was a pretty low score, something like 19-16.  Then, during halftime,  there was a ticker running along the bottom.  It was showing the first round matchups of that year’s tournament.  I saw that Siena was one of the 4 seeds that year.  I pointed that out to Dad.  A young Mike Krzyzewski  was among those providing commentary at halftime.

July 26, 2008-July 27, 2008 – I got an idea with somebody to make a movie in 7 days or one that took place over 7 days, or something like that.  But I had to get out of bed first.

Choose Your Man

June 24, 2007-June 25, 2007 – I was playing this game.  It involved turning on a movie, running up to this area in front of the screen, and then grabbing the superhero from the movie before he or she got into the area.  The first person to grab three won.  Sean McKeown was telling me how he never loses, but on my first try, I grabbed and got my first kill.  Soon after, I got my second.  I was having trouble with my third.  Most of the superheroes I was dealing with were female.

October 29, 2006-October 30, 2006 – I was in a room (my room?).  I was surveying everything that was hung up on the wall.  I got up on the bed and took a poster down because it was outdated.  Then I took off a page from a desk calendar – it was not my normal desk calendar.  Then I looked over and saw Darrell Hammond doing an impression of some Middle East political figure.

SNL: No Signs of Stopping

February 11, 2011-February 12, 2011 – I was watching the end of an SNL episode.  I think Tracy Morgan was the host.  In lieu of the goodbyes, Tracy was doing a song-and-dance number.  He was joined by Chris Parnell and two other recently departed former cast members.  They were mostly dancing in a row, with Tracy in the front, Chris second, and then the other two.  At one point, they did that pop-out-to-different-sides-from-behind move.  The Broadway Video logo showed up on the screen, and then it cut back to the number.  It was running a few minutes past 1:00 AM, but it wasn’t getting cut off.  I had been expecting it to get cut off at any moment, but then I wasn’t so sure as it showed no sign of stopping.
