Monuments-Collapse

Does Wearing Glasses Make You Look Smarter?

It’s often believed they do.  Just look at what former Gov. Rick Perry did after his monumental collapse in the 2012 presidential debates.  He looked like the biggest political goofball in modern history, but for his remake, he got himself a pair of big black-framed glasses.  Same dim mind, but instant boost to his IQ.  And now he’s about to run the Dept of Energy which is in charge of the nation’s nuclear energy program.  Look for Homer Simpson to be his deputy.  

Anyway, I digress.  IMHO, glasses don’t make you look smarter, but they make you look more serious.  Evidence that you read a lot (maybe with dim lighting…), and you’ll continue past the point where your eyes are screaming to be shut.  Or maybe it’s just evidence that your vision is genetically compromised, or you’re scared of using contacts.   I don’t know.  I’ve never needed glasses.  But I do find them kind of sexy, in the right situation.  And that definitely has absolutely nothing to do with Rick Perry.

I don’t understand. Why do people find it so easy to give up on me while I hold them like precious stones in my hand? Maybe because I’m a “rock” and they are “gems” — I can easily be replaced while they are treasures to keep. Maybe I did not leave an impact. Maybe I’m just a drizzle whereas they are like the storm, a force to be reckoned with.

I wish I can do the same.. to give up so easily. But I can’t.

I built a monument for them in my heart and plant them a garden. I can’t just let the monument to collapse and for the flowers to withered and die. I can’t just let something I worked hard for and put my heart and soul into to be destroyed. I can’t just give up on people.. my people.

[Live Video - Full Set] Monuments Collapse - Bottom of the Hill 07.15.2013

Just in case anyone was wondering how stupid the leafs have been for the past few seasons im here to break it down for you

  • they fired Brian Burke (GM) and Ron Wilson (Coach) who rebuilt the team
  • they replaced them with Dave Nonis (GM) and Randy Carlyle (Coach)
  • in Carlyles first full season (lockout-shortened) the team made the playoffs but they were terribly outshot the whole season
  • also James Reimer was Jesus
  • they brought the Boston Bruins to game 7 then had a MONUMENTAL GAME 7 COLLAPSE #itwas4-1
  • over the summer they signed David Clarkson to a 5.25 million dollar contract for 7 years (he had 1 30 GOAL SEASON IN HIS CAREER WHAT THE FUCK EVEN)
  • they also traded for Jonathan Bernier who is Jesus #2
  • so the leafs had 2 starting goalies yay (NOT YAY)
  • FUCKING CARLYLE DESTROYED REIMERS CONFIDENCE 
  • NOW PEOPLE SAY HE SUCKS BUT YOURE ALL WRONG
  • anyways
  • up until February the leafs were doing pretty good 
  • their defense was atrocious and they were getting outshot by 10-20 shots each night and their top 2 lines were the only ones scoring but still pretty good
  • and thats when it all went down
  • Nonis made NO TRADES AT THE DEADLINE 
  • NONE
  • NADA
  • The fact that Carlyle only ever played 3 lines was catching up to him as the whole team was fucking exhausted
  • The defense sunk to a whole new level of shit
  • and they went from 2ND TO 6TH IN THEIR CONFERENCE AND WERE ELIMINATED FROM THE PLAYOFFS
  • oh and Mr. 5.25 million SCORED 11 POINTS IN 60 GAMES
  • So the leafs suck 
  • but there was some hope because they brought in a new president YAY WOO BRENDAN SHANAHAN PARTY FUN CHANGE 
  • everyone thought he was going to be good and happy and make the team good again
  • but
  • but
  • but
  • his very first decision as the president was to GIVE RANDY CARLYLE A 2 YEAR CONTRACT EXTENSION
  • MR I ONLY PLAY 3 LINES AND CANT COACH MY DEFENSE IF MY LIFE DEPENDED ON IT IS STAYING IN TORONTO FOR 2 MORE YEARS
  • I CANT WITH THIS FUCKING ORGANIZATION
