TENNIS TUESDAY: Monfils Wins DC; Serena+Big 3 Skip Rogers Cup, Konta Beats #6 Venus  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
MONFILS WINS CITI OPEN IN WASHINGTON OVER IVO KARLOVICI visited the Citi Open in Washington, DC for the second time this weekend. In 2013 I saw Juan Martin del Potro beat Joh Isner in the final. This time I saw Gael Monfils beat Sascha Zverev in the semifinals. Monfils then faced Ivo Karlovic in the final the next day, which was played in brutally hot conditions (90-plus degrees, 50-plus percent humidity, court temperatures exceeding 140 degrees). I elected to stay home and watched on TV while Gael faced a match point but managed to ...

EYE CANDY: Demetrius Jenkins  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
Demetrius Jenkins is another phyne brother I found on Instagram (@demetrius_jenkins). It looks like he is in the Army, but I have no other information about him. If anyone knows his age, height or weight, let me know! Is he a model? A famous (not to me!) athlete? Not sure, but he has 65,000 followers on Instagram. I think you can see why! ...

Mandatory  »  A Life in the Day
Last night, we finally saw one of my favorite musicians: "Weird Al" Yankovic. He performed with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra in front of a full house, and it was a fantastic show. He opened with Tacky, a song from his latest album Mandatory Fun and continued with over an hour's worth of his hit parodies like Fat, Perform This Way, Dare to be Stupid, and an acoustic,  medley of his big classics Eat It, I Lost on Jeopardy, and  Like a Surgeon. He even treated us to a polka mix of recent pop hits. But he saved the best for last, ...

FILM REVIEW: Star Trek Beyond  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
I had heard that Star Trek Beyond was not getting great reviews, but since I have been a longtime fan of the franchise (beginning with watching the original series reruns in the early 1970s as a kid and continuing with the Star Trek: The Next Generation series in college). I think I have seen every Star Trek movie there is (except perhaps one of the last movies with the ST:TNG cast). I've also seen and enjoyed) the first two Star Trek movies 2013's Star Trek Into Darkness and 2009's Star Trek with the rebooted cast starring Chris Pine as  Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Spock ...

2016 CITI OPEN: I saw Monfils Beat Zverev  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
I'm in Washington, D.C. For the summer and so I decided to check out the CitiOpen. I have attended the final before but it was supposed to be 100 degrees (and 60% humidity) so instead I went no the semifinals and saw Gael Monfils put on a clinic against Next Gen phenomenon Sascha Zverev (the youngest player ranked in the Top 30). Gael won 6-4 6-0. He broke on the very first game of the match and only faced 2 break points (in the same game), which he saved with good serving and excellent movement. After losing ...

Bzzzz....  »  A Life in the Day
I parked in the small lot behind my bank early this morning, realizing last night that I needed a little cash in my pocket in order to pay for breakfast and lunch at work. My bank sits in the more tourist-friendly part of Long Beach along the street with fancy, Middle Eastern restaurants, glitzy shops selling everything from jewelry to high fashion, a few classics like Powell's Sweet Shoppe, and specialty food shops. During the day—especially one as beautiful and sunny as today was turning into—you can barely make your way through the crowds on the sidewalks. But ...

BOOK REVIEW: The Dark Forest by Cixin Liu  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
Last year The Three-Body Problem became the first book not published in English to win the Hugo award, the most prestigious award in science fiction and  fantasy last year. The sequel to The Three-Body Problem is The Dark Forest. This book builds more slowly than the first one and parts of it did not resonate for me. However The Dark Forest ends very VERY strongly. The last section of the book rescues it from being in the 3-4 star range and brings up to the 4-5 star range (on the Goodreads five-star scale).The Dark Forest is a very different story ...

iTunes Selection--One from Kate  »  A Life in the Day
The Man with the Child in His Eyes is one of my favorites from Kate Bush, released on her 1978 album The Kick Inside. The entire album itself is one of the best, too, and I'm not saying that because I'm a fan. Well, not just because I'm a fan.... When she sings this particular song, I always envision a young bride in the late 19th century, standing at the steps of a lighthouse as her husband ventures out to sea. As she wonders if he will return soon, she also questions if he truly loves her. It's beautiful song ...
