Something Old, New, Borrowed, and Blue

Something Old

Ali vs Foreman

October 30th wasn’t always known for just being a mediocre Tuesday. In 1974 it marked the date of one of the most historic bouts of pugilism in fighting history. The Rumble in the Jungle was the fight heard around the world. Muhammad Ali took on the grill master himself, George Foreman, and whooped his ass in Kinshasa, Zaire. Leaning on the ropes of the ring would never be the same after that.

Something New

The last few days of October, 2018 have not been cheery, to say the least. Domestic terrorism has been the tagline for a week at this point. With that said, President 45 has decided that he’s going to visit the city of the latest mass shooting in opposition of what the city and victims have asked. Eleven people were killed in Pittsburgh over the weekend in one of the most horrific scenes in American history. And as the smoke is still clearing, the people have called out 45’s aggressive talking points as one of the reasons for these events. CNN.com has pointed out that despite the backlash, the president has decided to visit the city personally.

Something Borrowed

So according to the stolen borrowed information from the pages of IGN.com, the best thing to happen to the “western” genre since the birth of Clint Eastwood is finally here. Red Dead Redemption 2 released a few days ago and is taking all the “W’s” with it. Live out your childhood dreams of joining a gang in the Wild West and hunting demon bears. I know I want to.

Something Blue

Blue Water Lillies, Claude Monet (approx. 1910)

Water Lilies is a collection of around 250 oil paintings by Claude Monet, a French Impressionist. The paintings depict his flower garden at his home in Giverny. His personal flower garden was the main focus of his artwork in the last 30 years of his life. Many of these works were painted while Monet has cataracts.

I float like a butterfly and sting like a bee. — Muhammad Ali
