Dome Pondering Import - Tupac on Greed, Back in 1992

I actually have no idea where I m leaning in this Presidential race. To be quite honest, I really don't like any of the candidates. And let me be clear, that's not an, eh, I can't decide who will get my vote. It really is more like, jees, I have to give my vote to one of these people, whom should it be?!

For me, yes, it's that bad. While there are things I do in fact like about the remaining candidates from the major parties, their dislikes are what have been giving me problems. I find Donald Trump's stance on social issues during a very sensitive time in this country to be highly irresponsible. I find Ted Cruz insanely arrogant, and this native New Yorker hasn't forgiven him for his "New York values" comment. Hilary Clinton flip flops and plays up the "feminist" card way too much for me. Bernie Sanders is outright delusional on his economic policies and new-wave socialistic thinking. Again, for me, the thought that one of these folks will be President in January 2017 is alarming. 

What I do know is that I watched a recently released interview by MTV with Tupac Shakur from 1992 and it just nails how I feel about life, about this country, and about humanity overall during this election season. Feel free to take a view and make your own judgement.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/12/17

3 Up
1. Aly Raisman - Following the bravery of Mckayla Maroney and others in the #MeToo campaign, Raisman has stepped forward as the charges pile up for sexual abuse by former USA Gymnastics doctor, Larry Nassar. By the way, shame on USA Gymnastics for continuing to allow this culture. I shudder to think what else lies in the world of Gymnastics. 
2. New York Times - In a world where journalism - real journalism - is becoming harder and harder to find, The Times continues to break stories left and right, and did so again this week with the Louis CK piece. I think we all are tired of journalism wrapped in identity politics, and yes, even "fake news". 
3. Kristaps Porzingis - Obviously, you all know how much I love the Unicorn. But seriously, how enjoyable is he to watch? And barring injury, he can only get better. Melo, who?

Pondering Picture #82

I snapped this photo in midtown Manhattan following a meeting with believe it or not, various professors from my alma mater of Cazenovia College. It was tremendous catching up with them all, especially considering it's been ten-plus years since I've seen them. 
Sometimes, honestly, it's almost like I forget I spent four years in upstate New York. And when I am reminded of it, often I am amazed in how a such a small town helped prepare me to tackle the big city, New York City - my home. 
Life is crazy.

WWE Battleground 2014: Usos vs. The Wyatts, and Well, Just Get Ready For SummerSlam!

I really didn't have much interest in WWE Battleground last night. It just felt like another WWE PPV with another new name that really didn't have much meaning other than stamping another event with a pointless description until SummerSlam. And to be honest, the recent string of WWE TV hasn't been the most entertaining in my eyes. Maybe it's just me, but I haven't been excited. Just meh. WWE just seems to be spinning their wheels a midst the doldrums of complacency and pitching the WWE Network every chance they have. 
Nonetheless, WWE Battleground wasn't all that terrible in my eyes. Here are some quick thoughts from last night's event:
