    Temperatures dropping near zero (no temperature!) with winds up to 40 MPH tonight into tomorrow. I think the North is invading us again, and we're getting beat badly.

    Fuck it I'm up here in the shit.

    "Winter is Coming."

  4. Feels weird having the ac on in Los Angeles so early in the year

    I turned down a high-paying job in Boston in 2008 because I couldn't handle the weather. I live in North Carolina for a reason: give me tornadoes, give me hurricanes, no sweat. Give me no temperature and I'm losing my damn mind.

    How about sending some of that warmth back east, eh?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Supposed to get down to -1 tonight. The hell is going on?

    ReplyDelete
  8. Biff Kensington Has a PosseFebruary 18, 2015 at 5:32 PM

    We died. And this is Hell.

    Where you live is dependent on what disasters you're okay with. I'll take snow over hurricanes and earthquakes and wildfires and shit.

    ReplyDelete
  10. But then I might need to put on a jacket

    ReplyDelete
  11. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 5:33 PM

    Feel like watching a PPV. Did everybody already watch Summerslam 97?

    ReplyDelete
  12. You left out the part where it gets ball-bustering hot in the summer.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Biff Kensington Has a PosseFebruary 18, 2015 at 5:34 PM

    Lived through a Category 4 hurricane, felt a 5.6 Earthquake, nearly bought the farm in a tornado in 2011 and had to wear the face mask I wear using the bush hog when the forest caught fire in 2009. I'll take any and all of that over snow.

    ReplyDelete
  14. How many buys would Fast Lane get if there was no WWE Network?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Biff Kensington Has a PosseFebruary 18, 2015 at 5:34 PM

    Yeah, but there's a remedy for that: swimming pool. (Or air conditioning if you don't mind a $200 power bill).

    ReplyDelete
  16. Today's sitcoms downright suck. I tried getting into modern family, Big Bang, community, and several others didn't find any of them good.

    All of the new ones this year stink. I watched an episode of A to Z and didn't laugh once. Watched fresh off the boat (2 episodes) and only laughed once.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'd say a good many. Lot of intrigue for this one.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Biff Kensington Has a PosseFebruary 18, 2015 at 5:35 PM

    Double fuck you, compadre. Send. Warmth.

    ReplyDelete
  19. They were trending around 150k or below for the crap PPVs. They'd do an average take for this one, given that both Bryan and Reigns have fans.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I completely missed the comma between Big Bang and Community the first time I read it.

    ReplyDelete
  21. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 5:36 PM

    Screw it I want Shawn-Taker goodness while I eat. Ground Zero it is.

    ReplyDelete
  22. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 5:37 PM

    Community's something that is easy to not get but fantastic if you get it.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Saw 5 or 6 episodes in season 1 and thought it was just ok and haven't seen an episode since

    ReplyDelete
  24. Seasons 1 and 2 are hilarious. Season 3 was meh. This current season (4) has been really good.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Watched first 2 seasons because ex enjoyed it but didn't get the hype

    ReplyDelete
  26. Biff Kensington Has a PosseFebruary 18, 2015 at 5:38 PM

    The worst winter storm we ever had was back in 2002. It took longer for us to get power back from that (17 days) than it did Hurricane Hugo (14 days). Plus it looked as though a tornado had come through, then frozen everything in place. It was sobering to see trees down, utility poles snapped and power lines just hanging. We deal better with the 'natural disasters' because snow is like a unicorn here. I think we've had five major snow events in my lifetime and I'm pushing 30. A hurricane rolls up and we're worried about losing our tomato planters. A quarter inch of ice and four inches of snow and we're composing our last will and testament.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Caught the Alberto El Patron promo from Lucha Underground last week. He doesn't mention any names, but he does say he wanted to work in a company "where they don't hold you back because of the colour of your skin". Ouch. Decent promo too. Way more fire than any time in WWE.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Best comedy on tv today is South Park. Distant second is american dad

    ReplyDelete
  29. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 5:40 PM

    Family man Goldust was so weird.

    ReplyDelete
  30. What about It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Never seen an episode

    ReplyDelete
  32. Comedy is the most subjective genre, I don't think there's a definite "best".

    ReplyDelete
  33. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 5:42 PM

    Yeah this. Bad's objective, good's harder to target.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Norm Macdonald is live tweeting his experience at SNL40. Said that he and Higgins created Celebrity Jeopardy, ripping off an SCTV skit. They waited to pitch it to Martin Short, since they wanted his permission

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm still anxiously awaiting Hoochie Underground: A XXX Parody.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Fresh Off The Boat is great. A to Z was fun, though I don't think it was ever going to live up to the hype I had for it. Plus, it just kind of ended with an abrupt every rom com ever ending.


    I completely disagree that today's sitcoms "downright suck."

    ReplyDelete
  37. Wrong. The correct answer is History Of The World Part One.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I agree that it's very subjective but all arts is that type of way. I can't stand the Katy perry dark horse song but it's super popular.

    ReplyDelete
  39. New Girl is a show that got better as it fleshed out the characters and became more of an ensemble rather than a starring vehicle for Zooey Deschanel being adorkable

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'm still waiting for the part two. If any brooks movies movie deserves a sequel, it's that one

    ReplyDelete
  41. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 5:48 PM

    Unpopular opinion: Brian Pillman was really overrated.

    ReplyDelete
  42. so is there a rewatch tonight?

    ReplyDelete
  43. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 5:49 PM

    Just started Ground Zero

    ReplyDelete
  44. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 5:49 PM

    13:45

    ReplyDelete
  45. Season was Schmidt's love triangle and the Nick and Jess relaiopnship?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Brian pillman was a b+ player.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Community is gold.

    The first 3 seasons at least

    ReplyDelete
  48. Modern Family went from the show that resurrected sitcoms to the punchline for generic sitcoms pretty quickly. I still like it though and it's easy to watch in syndication.

    ReplyDelete
  49. With an F heart.

    ReplyDelete
  50. It's general very funny and watchable, but this season's been middling.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Another record breaking day over at the new blog! Everyday is an adventure and I can't get enough! Thanks to all my contributors and thanks to all of you for your support. It's been a lot of fun. We're just having a good time over at:

    www.danimalcrossing.com

    ReplyDelete
  52. It was an all-timer for me if they'd stopped at 3.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Hey he had a lot of heart in that wargames match

    ReplyDelete
  54. I swear, Ariel Winter's boobs gets bigger with each new episode of Modern Family.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Yea, it's still funny, I've never seen a show do a complete 180 that quickly. For a show that helped people accept gay marriage, Cam and Mitchell are awful characters.

    ReplyDelete
  56. That's part of the fun of watching new Modern Families. Must be fun for the kid who plays Luke

    ReplyDelete
  57. This season you mean?

    ReplyDelete
  58. Best sitcom ever: I love lucy.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Just in general reception. It was THE sitcom in 2009 when it first debuted, but it seemed to fall out of favor very quickly.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Arested Development vs Community.

    What's the better off the wall sitcom!

    ReplyDelete
  61. The first four seasons of NewsRadio are untouchable.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I might give that egg recipe a shot.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Arrested Development. How is that a debate?

    ReplyDelete
  64. From the Observer:

    "- There's been talk of giving WWE NXT Diva Zahra Schreiber with Baron Corbin because they're both covered in tattoos. Zahra is the NXT Diva who was involved in the Seth Rollins nude photo controversy last week."

    ReplyDelete
  65. I don't know why, but now that he's older, he plays Luke like he's got some sort of autism.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Well Luke's always been dumb. Apparently real life Luke is in Mensa. ACTING!

    ReplyDelete
  67. http://blogs.indiewire.com/theplaylist/neill-blomkamps-next-movie-will-be-his-reimagining-of-the-alien-franchise-20150218



    YEAH BABY! New Alien movie that pretty much ignores Alien 3 and Resurrection!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I think a lot of shows do that. First 2-3 seasons it is the greatest show and then bam.

    Glee was a great example of that (which I never saw). Show was everywhere and had lots of top singles (tons of billboard and iTunes records) and then nothing.

    ReplyDelete
  69. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 5:56 PM

    Did Pillman have a finisher in the WWF? I have no memory of one.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Your words not mine.

    ReplyDelete
  71. just came in now at 20:00. reasonably close?


    do we do the Sept 22 1997 Raw after this? (it's one of the 2 1997 Raws on the Network)

    ReplyDelete
  72. I just feel like it was cool getting this glimpse into a normal family.

    The problem is, normal families aren't interesting enough to sustain years and years of TV.

    ReplyDelete
  73. It's delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Glee also had 3/4 of the cast leave which is probably 75% of what happened there.

    ReplyDelete
  75. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 5:57 PM

    Pillman has a crappy car.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Why not just pair her with orton or Batista with all their ugly ass tattoos

    ReplyDelete
  77. It's very cold here, and I am about to eat spaghetti.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Glee was a phenomenon in season 1 but they ran out of plots and burned through a lot of ridiculous storylines too quickly.


    There's only so many times Sue can threaten to kill the glee club while the club has to win sectionals, regionals, nationals, worlds, whatever.


    Glee also thought it was a more important show than it was actually was and has to address every social issue down our throats.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I'm in the UK so not aware of its American reception. This season seems to have attempting "edgy" with the awful neighbours and pot and swinging. It just doesn't work. I don't see the problem in being the best family sitcom around.

    ReplyDelete
  80. On the Network, it says NXT is supposed to be on but there's an old Savage interview. It's past 8, what gives?

    ReplyDelete
  81. I wanna say The Middle is better than Modern Family.

    ReplyDelete
  82. If we include the fourth seasons, it isn't one. AD all the way

    I laughed more at community though. I watched them back to back and left it feeling like a tie.

    ReplyDelete
  83. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 5:58 PM

    I'm all about the PPVs. Im trying for a sped up your of WWE history. PPV gives a pretty good snapshot of each month.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Neill Blomkamp is actually doing it? OH YES!

    ReplyDelete
  85. fair enough. I'll watch the Raw on my own again at some point this weekend.


    though that is one of the bigger ones in terms of history - first time Austin stunned Vince, plus the MSG debut of Cactus v. HHH.

    ReplyDelete
  86. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 5:59 PM

    Scott Putski?!? On PPV?!?!

    ReplyDelete
  87. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 6:00 PM

    Yeah we're getting an abrupt shift to attitude era.

    ReplyDelete
  88. so at the previous PPV, the display to show off the light heavyweight division was Sasuke v. Taka in a ****+ match.
    And the next PPV, it's Scott Putski v. Brian Lawler. Someone fucked up here.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Is there a tv show youve seen so many times you can't watch it anymore. I just realized I've gotten that way with Law and Oreer SVU

    ReplyDelete
  90. Best example of a show starting super hot and then wtf happened: csi.
    Top show on tv with ratings that double the walking dead/ncis and this week would probably be the series finale with no publicity at all.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Melissa Joan Hart is still hot as fuck

    ReplyDelete
  92. I had that exact feeling.

    With Law and Order SVU...

    ReplyDelete
  93. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 6:01 PM

    Clarissa can Explore My Pants.

    ReplyDelete
  94. I think CBS will give CSI a 13-episode send off next season.

    ReplyDelete
  95. 30 Rock, as much as I hate to say it. I liked the show, but it doesn't have the "rewatch 1000 times over" factor that old classic Simpsons or Seinfeld or even Curb had.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I honestly can't tell you the last time I was stoked for a weekly wrestling show. But... Whooooo NXT!

    ReplyDelete
  97. I used to be addicted to that show. I ruined an entire day at the beach one day because as I was getting ready to hit the beach I threw on the television in the motel room and spent the whole day watching an SVU marathon.

    ReplyDelete
  98. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 6:02 PM

    Putski trying to appeal to the crowd and getting booed was pretty funny.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Adult boy meets world topanga is super hot

    ReplyDelete
  100. I dont really dislike the new cops they brought in after Stabler but I think they could have nixed the show when he left

    ReplyDelete
  101. Tvbythenumbers thinks it is probably gone

    ReplyDelete
  102. Probably Top Gear. I'll still have it in in the background sometimes (there's a channel here that shows it about 6 times a day) but some episodes are just too rinsed to even do that with any more.

    ReplyDelete
  103. so much X-Pac heat here.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Hm... I think it's an updated open for the show.

    ReplyDelete
  105. I'm going to try to make an omelette tomorrow, everything I've read says add water, but I could of sworn you add milk?

    ReplyDelete
  106. Is that the match that Putski buggers up his knee and we never see him again?

    ReplyDelete
  107. Regal's office is nicer than Vince's. TAKE THAT, BOSS!

    ReplyDelete
  108. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 6:03 PM

    Putski-canrana?!?

    ReplyDelete
  109. The simpsons. I've probably seen the first 15 season episodes at least 10 times each

    ReplyDelete
  110. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 6:04 PM

    SPOILERS lol

    ReplyDelete
  111. I've never been a fan of Regal's longer haired look.

    ReplyDelete
  112. I don't think CBS would just callously cancel one of their signature shows. I think it gets some sort of send off. They let The Mentalist get a final season

    ReplyDelete
  113. I've got another: Two and a Half Men.

    ReplyDelete
  114. NXT's theme sucks but it's STILL better than RAW's. I don't know Smackdown's theme because I haven't watched it since Angle was in WWE.

    ReplyDelete
  115. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 6:05 PM

    And just happened lol.

    ReplyDelete
  116. I miss "Welcome Home".

    ReplyDelete
  117. Please welcome - future RAW mid card fodder -...

    ReplyDelete
  118. Csi is tied with the mentalist with the lowest rated cbs show.

    ReplyDelete
  119. I wonder if Owens will be allowed to challenge audience members to come and fight him like he did in ROH.

    ReplyDelete
  120. CSI also airs in an impossible timeslot.

    ReplyDelete
  121. I miss let the bodies hit the floor

    ReplyDelete
  122. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 6:08 PM

    WOW! Putski's knee got fucked up!

    ReplyDelete
  123. I miss WWE when it didn't stink

    ReplyDelete
  124. That. It's *fine* now but the show was ready to end before Stabler left. Then was as good a time as any to call it.

    Thank god they didn't continue CI without Goren at least. Law and Order alltogether is probably calling it a franchise soon.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Wasn't Jerry basically LOLing during commentary?

    ReplyDelete
  126. I like the dueling threads going right now...Kevin Steen vs. Scott Putski? Count me in!

    ReplyDelete
  127. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 6:09 PM

    Yeah but he snuck over and checked the severity of the injury for Vince while doing his Don Rickles shit.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Whoa! Don't want to spoil because I'm a bit ahead but... Whoa!

    ReplyDelete
  129. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 6:10 PM

    Los Boriquas had easily the dumbest group uniforms in WWE history.

    ReplyDelete
  130. To think...that deprived us of **** Putski matches. Surprised Vince didn't push him to the moon with his roided up physique.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Her name is blue pants? Really?

    ReplyDelete
  132. I'd go with moms uniform

    ReplyDelete
  133. Well well, look who's back

    ReplyDelete
  134. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 6:11 PM

    From what I saw (not much) he looked more green than actively terrible.

    ReplyDelete
  135. I suppose I'll be the black sheep and watch college hoops.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Oh god, it's Garfield's cousin Nermal and he's here in NXT!

    ReplyDelete
  137. That's a cool surprise.

    ReplyDelete
  138. But...but.... Rhyno!

    ReplyDelete
  139. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 6:12 PM

    Red tank top, white pants and fedora's worse.

    ReplyDelete
  140. I like how the announcer knew how many Hardcore titles Rhyno won.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Syracuse/Louisville is close.

    ReplyDelete
  142. They'd change about thirty times before they disbanded.


    They'd also eventually rap their theme song to the ring.

    ReplyDelete
  143. How far in adance is NXT taped?

    ReplyDelete
  144. All those people arguing over whether WWE would hire Samoa Joe for nXt purposes should look no further than Rhyno. I mean c'mon, If fucking Rhyno has a place, then Samoa Joe sure as hell does too.

    ReplyDelete
  145. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 6:13 PM

    I have absolutely no memory of this...

    ReplyDelete
  146. People know who Rhino is though.

    ReplyDelete
  147. So NXT is a place to rebuild careers? Hopefully Rhyno will make some guys look good.

    ReplyDelete
  148. They'd go from fedora wearing goofs to dressing like more modern thugs.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Good point...he really wasn't around long enough to bury for sucking. He didn't get a chance.

    ReplyDelete
  150. I can't see Adrian Neville without thinking about Mighty Mouse now

    ReplyDelete
  151. Do they? It's been a long ass time since he stepped foot in a WWE ring,

    ReplyDelete
  152. So glad I kept myself from reading spoilers.

    ReplyDelete
  153. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 6:15 PM

    Savio looks like he's gonna challenge Faarooq to some dominos.

    ReplyDelete
  154. Here I come to save the day!

    ReplyDelete
  155. I'd imagine the number of people who know who Samoa Joe or Rhyno are is pretty similar in 2015.

    ReplyDelete
  156. Can he come out to that song sung by Andy Kaufman?

    ReplyDelete
  157. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 6:16 PM

    Pulled a decent hurricanrana. He'd be a pretty good NXT prospect had it existed back then.

    ReplyDelete
  158. The Vaudevillians? That is a great gimmick!

    ReplyDelete
  159. Koko B Ware and Owen say hi.

    ReplyDelete
  160. How is the vaudevillians not the wwe tag champs?

    ReplyDelete
  161. NXT is such a fun show compared to all the other wrestling shows on nowadays.

    ReplyDelete
  162. The gang wars was one of the worst things ever.


    Let's split up a really good faction into three shitty ones. The only saving grace is that we got The Rock out of it.

    ReplyDelete
  163. I thought big kaz referred to her tits

    ReplyDelete
  164. I don't like Enzo Amore. He's too much of a clown, in the bad way.

    ReplyDelete
  165. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 6:17 PM

    Adam Rose corollary. That shits gonna look real weak on a big stage.

    ReplyDelete
  166. You truly can't teach that. I certify that as true as I'm a teacher.

    ReplyDelete
  167. Hot damn, Carmella

    ReplyDelete
  168. Wow. Influenced by DDP much?

    ReplyDelete
  169. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 6:18 PM

    IYH: Ground Zero

    ReplyDelete
  170. They're like the weightlifting guys from Family Guy.

    ReplyDelete
  171. All the worst elements of DDP and Joel Gertner (who I never got the appeal of either) combined.

    ReplyDelete
  172. Enzo and Kas look like Scotty 2 Hotty and Edge got addicted to drugs and went to Burning Man.

    ReplyDelete
  173. Terrible. That would get panned on Monday nights.

    ReplyDelete
  174. Vince is probably jizzing in his pants about the big kass

    ReplyDelete
  175. what? "Community" is awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  176. If you use just water it will keep the eggs nice and fluffy

    ReplyDelete
  177. Uhh why isnt Rhyno on the main roster? WWE needs heels outside of Authority members and Bray.

    ReplyDelete
  178. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 6:20 PM

    He's the new Test!

    ReplyDelete
  179. Maybe this is a test to see if Rhyno is ready to be on a bigger stage?

    ReplyDelete
  180. Big kass can already speak better than roman reigns and has better hair

    ReplyDelete
  181. Man this is a fun show.

    ReplyDelete
  182. he needs to learn WWE style all over again

    ReplyDelete
  183. He reminds me a little bit of Justin Hawk Bradshaw's early WWE days.

    ReplyDelete
  184. I'd go Seinfeld personally but Parks is getting up there for me

    ReplyDelete
  185. My Client, bROCK Lesnar!February 18, 2015 at 6:22 PM

    The NoD exploding is really fucking boring.
