Lonely Boy

Well I’m so above you
And it’s plain to see
But I came to love you anyway
So you pulled my heart out
And I don’t mind bleeding
Any old time you keep me waiting
Waiting, waiting

Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
I’m a lonely boy
I’m a lonely boy
Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting

Well your mama kept you but your daddy left you
And I should’ve done you just the same
But I came to love you
Am I born to bleed?
Any old time you keep me waiting
Waiting, waiting

Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
I’m a lonely boy
I’m a lonely boy
Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting


Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
I’m a lonely boy
I’m a lonely boy
Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting!

The Arrival Of Los Angeles FC

(CNN) -- Derbies often provide the highlight of any football season -- whether that be Boca Juniors vs. River Plate, AC Milan vs. Inter or Arsenal vs. Spurs -- and Major League Soccer (MLS) is now hoping that Los Angeles can join that illustrious list.
For the hope for the city's new franchise, whose working title is simply Los Angeles Football Club, is that it can have an intense rivalry with four-time champions LA Galaxy.
The first derby is scheduled to take place in 2017, when the club is set to enter the league.
And it should be a high profile event if any of the illustrious co-owners, NBA legend Magic Johnson, U.S. football great Mia Hamm and her husband, Major League Baseball star, Nomar Garciaparra, attend.
"We feel strongly that this city cannot only support but will really thrive with two teams -- rivals on and off the field," said Don Garber, the MLS' long-standing commissioner.
Garber's enthusiasm for the new franchise -- which also numbers motivational speaker Tony Robbins and controversial Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan among its diverse 22-person ownership group -- is seemingly limitless.

"This visionary ownership group will chart a course that will further elevate the sport in this great city and, combined with a new state-of-the-art stadium, accelerate us down the path toward becoming one of the top leagues in the world," he added.
Yet the MLS is well aware of the need for caution given that Los Angeles FC's creation comes just three days after the city's former second club, Chivas, ceased operations following 10 years of existence.
Set up in 2005 by Jorge Vergara, the owner of Mexican side Chivas de Guadalajara, and Mexico City businessman Antonio Cue, the American Chivas failed in its aim of tapping into the interest of LA's sizeable Hispanic community.
The fact that the club ground-shared with Galaxy may have hindered its ability to establish its own identity, which might explain why a new stadium for Los Angeles FC is a leading priority.
"We believe this team can become one of the most outstanding clubs in the MLS and a globally-recognized brand," said the ownership group's leader, Henry Nguyen, in a statement.
"Today is day one and time for us to focus on developing a world-class stadium for the club to play in and for fans to enjoy."

MLS Commissioner Garber wholeheartedly agrees.
"There are four key elements to success in MLS soccer," he said.
"You need a community that loves the game, owners that are passionate about the league, and you need to have them be local - it's important for them to come from the community yet support that effort with resources from international investors, which is very much the case here.
"Lastly, we need to have a plan for a stadium, whether that is a large stadium downtown or a soccer stadium that we start from scratch."
"We have all of those elements here."
In addition to uncertainty about the team's official name, prospective fans must also wait for confirmation of who will form the front office, coaching and administrative staff.
What is known is that Peter Guber, who owns NGA's Golden State Warriors and co-owns Major League Baseball's Los Angeles Dodgers, will serve as executive chairman.
Los Angeles FC's presence will make the MLS a 22-team league in 2017 with New York City FC, which is co-owned by English Premier League side Manchester City and baseball side New York Yankees, and Orlando City joining next season.
Starting with ten teams in 1996, the MLS will thus double in size to 20 teams as it enter its 20th year.

I have no more caddies to train. Boo-urns.

I took this morning to eat breakfast at Carl's Jr. at the local gas station on the corner of PCH and Santa Fe. I noticed, while I was eating, this poor bum standing there, awestruck, in disbelief, emotionless. I wondered, did something happen to this guy? An attendant asked him what was wrong. He said it was nothing, and he left. As I left the gas station to return here to blog, I noticed the poor guy still standing outside. Yep, something must have happened to him. I don't even want to know.

With that said, I took a leap of faith this past weekend to satisfy my Pangya addiction and do some grinding. As a result, a number of things have happened. First, all of my 12 caddies are fully trained, Big Papel being the last, taking just two days to reach Level 4. All four Pang caddies, with the exception of Titan Boo for now, are on vacation. Secondly, I got all the motion items for Nuri R on my main account, got a Pink Umbrella motion item for Hana R on my main, and I ended up getting the Halloween sets for Hana R on my main and alt.

Third, I ended up acquiring both sets of wings for Hana R on my alt and the Devil Wings for Hana R on my main. Fourth, I have all the Scratchy Sets for this current update. Fifth, my Hana R on my alt looks like a naughty Gothic imouto and the evil twin sister of my Hana R on my main. And finally, I recorded my first few short game achievements. Thanks to the update, I can now play short games on Grand Prix mode. So now I won't have to worry about getting crushed by golfers who are far better than me at chipping and putting in a regular short game. As long as there is no one in the room, I get to finish first, and I've cleared all of the short games in Grand Prix mode, although I had to redo one or two because someone else decided to join in, which I detest.

The only major problem I had with Pangya this update is the server instability. It's no longer the hackers that are the problem. I received two disconnects in this event and my alt received another, so both accounts now have three quits. I hate these things. I work real hard for my Fairy title, my Devil Wings and especially my Angel Wings. There has to be some sort of Quit Rate event around the corner because this is spreading faster than Ebola. It sucks.

As does the recent Papel/Gacha update. What should really be a Papel exclusive now is divided into Papel shop and Gacha. The earpieces are the Gacha items, while the headsets are the Papel Shop items. Really lousy idea because the one Gacha I was anticipating, Cien the caddie, didn't arrive. Maybe they haven't found a decent voice actress for her, who knows. But the fact that this is a Gacha that I have no intentions to spend opened the door for me to get the motion items I need taken care of.

Take a look at this video from my good friend Hachi7, who is of Master rank, one floor above me. He's obviously played this game longer than I have. I am just entering my 17th month playing Pangya. He has some complaints about this Halloween Event that I think you'll agree, if you incorporate logic and reasoning (and timing).
