Smeesh's Monday Musings

In what I hope becomes a regular feature here on WMD, I’m taking a quick look at a few things that have been on my mind this past week.

Without further ado here are Smeesh’s Monday Musings, your Monday morning time-killer, good/bad/ugly style:

The Good – Everyone’s favorite part-rapper-part-singer-all-weed-enthusiast Kid Cudi has announced “The Cud Life Tour 2013” featuring Big Sean, Tyler the Creator, and Logic. The Fucking Walking Paradox is a favorite of mine and I’m interested to see how much of Odd Future he brings with him. I've never heard much from Logic, but anyone who can seamlessly incorporate 6 Batman characters into 4 lines (as he did on his verse in C Dot Castro’s “World Wide”) is good in my book.

The Bad – You’ve probably heard it by now, but we haven’t covered it. Dennis Farina died last week at the age of 69. I've always felt like he was one of those great actors who never quite sprung to mind when thinking about “top 10 actors” lists or any of that noise. Underrated for sure. Anyway, it’s sad to see him go. Ray Barboni will always be one of the best characters in cinematic history.

The Ugly – I’m always going to be proud of my Philadelphia fandom.  But it’s hard to get excited about a team that not only starts Delmon Young regularly, but used him as a cleanup hitter more than once over the past week. The Phils have now dropped 8 in a row and will almost certainly go into seller mode, jettisoning their valuable pieces (i.e. Chase Utley and Cliff Lee) for promising prospects. As a eulogy of sorts, here’s .gif of Young, Delmon plying his trade in right field. I think it may just encapsulate the 2013 Phillies season perfectly.

Maybe toss a follow my way? @SmeeshWMD
