Skimming through Sling this morning, looking for something to watch.ABC Family is a pretty shitty channel.
The pan am games can fuck right off.
How is CBC's sports coverage these days anyway?
I can't remember a FA cup final, I have cared less about. I very vaguely want Arsenal to win,
Dunno don't have cable.
Watching the Paul Heyman doc. Edge absolutely crushes Vince in a subtle way. Surprised they didn't catch it(I missed it the first time too) and cut it out.
That's interesting because Edge often talks about how Vince was the one who saw him as a top guy when no one else in charge did.
Edge is always good with his polite jabs at WWE.
I get the feeling he isn't the biggest fan of the people that run the place.
In the doc, he talks about how Paul was the first guy to believe in him as a singles guy.
On Jericho's podcast his exact words were "I didn't like a lot of the people I worked with."
So it appears if I don't willingly go to the WWE house show here in town on 8/16 I will be dragged to it kicking & screaming. There are already 4 others I know who are going and they assured me I am too. I suppose I have no excuses not to: it's on my day off, tickets will be cheap, and it's about a dozen blocks from my house. It's the Sunday before SummerSlam, the night before RAW in Minneapolis.
Even his own DVD is kinda hostile.
I don't know how to link it because its imbedded on the front of wrestlezone but that Owens promo for wwe.com is just a cash money heel promo. I love how his motivation is that cena took too much credit for zayns injury.
I'm suffering really badly from depression at the moment, have zero energy or motivation, but have a big exam on Thursday. Absolutely fucking dreading it!
It will probably be way fun.
Will you be the Chavo to my Eddie?
Pass if you can, fail if you must. But always cheat
I'd like to see Villa win purely because Arsenal seem a team content to wallow in mediocrity and aspire to nothing more than CL qualification most seasons.
No problem. I cheated on tons of shit. Have you ever seen the hard ass math they make you do to get a biz degree? Fuck all that noise
Problem is that this one's an English Lit degree exam - I don't know the questions, I only know the texts for two of the questions (the other is the equivalent of the giant egg at Survivor Series) and I've not enough room on my arm to write everything I could need!
Can you steal a copy?
And he sounded so happy to be able to say it too.
My grandfather had a small heart attack this week while in the hospital after getting work on a blocked artery. My mom said he's back home and resting. Damn, got put through a lot, but they said he'll recover and be fine provided he take his newly assigned meds and eat better. Already lost one member of my immediate family not too long ago, it'd be nice of everyone can stick around for the time being.
That's why English was my worst subject. Can't cheat. Have to do lots of writing and reading filler. Fuck that.
I only like them for their Disney animated/Pixar/Harry Potter marathons, everything else can F off
I had 25 texts to study for this one. It's painful!
Fingers crossed for him, bud!
I kinda felt he was being too NICE
Redtube.com.Wholesome family entertainment. If your family is waaaaaay fucked up.
I'll send a prayer your way, brother
What did he say? I always noticed he had one of those "creative has no idea what they're doing" attitudes in his interviews and docs.
Uh huh. Where's your punny humor now, tree boy? Seriously. Relax and do the best you can. You'll be fine.
I really miss when they would have new stars debut at PPV. If you're just going to debut them in a squash match anyway, why do it on Raw, do it on the PPV instead and get a bit of Anticipation instead. Who remembers Lucha Dragons debut or who they faced? How about Adam Rose, Bo Dallas, etc.
You can never go wrong with the synths on the Big Poppa hook
Basically that Heyman was the only one left in the business who knows what the audience wants and the rest are guys in padded suits who are out of touch.
Hello to all my friends here on the Blog!
Hi y KO no kill Cena yet?
Best wishes to you and yours. I miss my grandparents every day.
Playing 2k14. Who knew Balls Mahoney would be so fun to use?
Usually when they do that now they just rematch the exact same match on Raw the next night anyway. More people see it then.
It appears that Whispering Jane needs to learn some subtlety. It's ironic that someone with that name would use bold type for their message. Also, you're banned.
That's pornography, isn't it?
I always get this weird kind of anxiety when they announce the titles expiring on netflix each month.
Jeremy spoke on, the bloooooog today.
Butterflies and zebras..
You are a gentleman and a scholar.Check out the Jim Crockett Promotions group on Facebook. Really cool old school fans there
The Brickhouse Brown and New Jack shoots ended up tied in the poll. The first three votes that reply to this will decide the winner. And go.
I don't know, but i'll know it when I see it.
I vote for me
Should have went with "I choose me."/KellyTaylor'd
Right now it's 2-2... or is it 3-1?
And the New Jack shoot is the winner
I feel like swordfish, but I don't feel like going all the way to the fishmonger.
Was I the 3rd New Jack vote or the 2nd Brown vote?Hmmmmm?
Had planned on going to Moe's today to enjoy a veggie burrito until I got home from the gym to find my brother eating pizza. Now I'm torn.
I thought he got rid of the Family Feedbag
I asked him if he wanted pizza and he said he wasn't hungry!What a jerk!
Thad, you didn't finish your spaghetti and Moeballs!Quiet you fool, it could be ours!
I've been listening to the jazz station lately. There's hardly any commercials and the DJs aren't obnoxious.Yeah...jazz.
I stayed up late watching this so I could review it just for you all:http://memoriesat88mph.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-time-guardian-1987.html#more
My favourite show is called Music to Listen to Jazz By.It's usually jazz.
Ducks/Blackhawks should be nuts tonight.
GIVE ME BACK MY SON!!!
Jazz is my go to music for bedtime earbuds.
Reigns and Orton aren't even on the ppv. I didn't notice it until I looked at the lineup card. Is that good or bad? I think for WWE that's a bad thing.
I'm sure Reigns will be involved with the WWE title match interfering or something. Orton, who knows? lol
I wish he was joining The Authority but WWE seems fully vested in this Sting and Luger gimmick
I don't think WWE is fully invested in anything.
I'm not sure if it's a full three hour show or just a 2 hour show.Although would a Reigns/Orton vs Kane/Show match make you more likely to watch the show?
Ended up getting pretty wasted last night and hooked up with a girl I met at a bar. I was pretty drunk but did remember her mentioning "boyfriend in jail." Her number was deleted this morning.
EC should play like a B show. This helps IMO.
There are about 7 matches so it looks like a full 3 hour show. No, no more Kane and Big Show. Just odd that they left them both off the card and they aren't injured
So when you end up dead in a ditch, we at least know what direction to point the police?
What Jobber said lol. I have a degree in Finance and I passed my accounting class but doing nothing but cheating. Don't remember a single thing about accounting, lol.
yes, thank you very much!
As it's a B/C level "PPV" I wouldn't mind having a ECW style impromptu match or two during the show.
Some folks like to hit it and quit itAnd Id rather stay and playUnless she has a bf in jail
Then why are you your firm's lead accountant?!
With this just being a throwaway show, I'd be cool with something random like "Battlebowl". Just mix up guys that never interact with each other. Cena/Titus vs Sandow/Xavier Woods. Just the most nonsensical stuff they could come up with. Hell, the drawing could even be a shoot.
Here ya go*hands Nerd Jr over*
I did too, Dr Hibbert!
Avoid that bar for a good 5-6 months. Good rule of thumb.
Maybe she was planning on framing you and said she hoped you'd still be her boyfriend when you're in jail
It's bad enough the crowd noise overdubbing in the 80's SNME's was so painfully obvious and chintzy, but in the Beefcake/Ron Bass match in Jan. '89 they overdubbed cheesy fake whiplashing noises. It was barely one degree away from a Loony Toons short.
Hey, Shelton, you know how I said it would kill you last? I lied...*drops Shelton off a cliff*
In Rhode Island, cases of syphillis are up something like 79% and they blame social media sites like Tinder.
Luckily for me, I subscribe the Dennis Stamp philosophy of life*bounces off of trampoline at the bottom back onto the cliff*
I'm going to see Roddy Piper tonite.
If Jeff Hardy is born a few years later, does he even get a shot with WWE? Seems like he would have been a King of the Indies type.
A "Great American Bash" over 4th of July weekend would be cool. Just broadcast a house show with American flags all over the place.
You're still not booked.
Next Saturday, it'll be "Hello friends. Welcome to St. Lake City... a tradition unlike any other."
It's absolutely a good thing. It gives the new generation (and R-Truth) a chance to shine on a big event without matches from Orton, Kane or Big Show sticking up the Main Event scene. Reigns is weird, but he's been so involved in the Rollins-Ambrose program, I'm sure he'll play a part in the main event.
BattleBowl would be awesome
Big.Happy movie or sad movie?
Finishing September 1996 if anyone wants to watch Nitro
Disney put the kibosh on Tron 3, saying they had no good release window for it over the next three years.Goddammit
Gotta make room for superhero release every month. Or Frozen.
Thats still my go to game
Maybe he's in for a physically harmless white collar crime.
Just started to rain like a mofo here. Realized that my gutters were blocked. Had to perform an emergency in-rain clearing operation.Got wet.
"Heh heh heh. I didn't know you liked to get wet."
Never seen 1 or 2. I feel like I've missed nothing.
Elimination Chamber has some serious potential. I'll be disappointed if there aren't at least two ****+ matches.
There's also talk that Tomorrowland flopping hard killed their taste for any sci-fi fantasy stuff.
Ducks/Blackhawks...ahhh, the relaxing and refreshing Game 7, following finally seeing the Rags go down, hehe.
I've started to hear that and that would suck. Tomorrowland isn't bombing because no one wants their sci-fi, it's just no one wanted a sci-fi movie that refused to reveal its story and its reviews said "what story?". Reminds me how Disney scrubbed "Of Mars" off John Carter because Mars Needs Moms bombed, never mind that MNM (heh) was simply unappealing
Mars Needs Moms?
Yeah, it was the last of those creepy looking CG movies from Robert Zemeckis a la The Polar Express. Bombed really hard and cost Disney something in the neighborhood of $150 mil
They were calling for 50mm of rain to fall from now continuously until tomorrow night.We got like 10 minutes of hurricane and now the sun is coming out.
Yu-Uh. No. Not at all.
So is 50mm like 2 inches?
My wife's reaction when I asked her how Tomorrowland was-"It was.. *long pause while she figures out how to politely say she hated it* ...a movie."
A pedophile movie
Mars Needs MomsBudget: $150 millionGross: $39 millionThat's not domestic; that's a worldwide total. With 3D surcharges. Jesus.
Who was that supposed to appeal to? Sci fi? Moms? Kids? Families?
A quick check shows Tron: Legacy grossed $400 million worldwide on a $170 mil budget. Probably didn't help.
That's 39 million dollars worth of people that I just cannot believe spent that money on a so-named movie.Some people will literally watch anything on a screen.
I can't speak for the original... which may have been really cool at the time... but the sequel was just a whole bunch of nothing.
It was such a fantastic, innovative, almost revolutionary movie, too. People have no taste nowadays.
Frozen was good stuff.
I remember Legacy being enjoyable enough and I liked it, but I promptly forgot about it a day later and never saw it again.
Please come back with an incredibly fabricated carny story.
Why upset? It's not like Tron 2 was any good...
So I take it... the date at the Old Spaghetti Factory didn't go so well?
I saw it in theaters
I'd have booked a tag team match, playa.
And the main reason why John Carter was renamed.
In theory: all of the aboveIn reality: none of the above
I've been clamoring for Battlebowl for YEARS. What a fun way to burn through 3 hours. They could have a lot of fun with that.
Don't Worry, Be Happy.Ooooooo, oooooo oooo oooooo, ooooooooooooo....don't worry.
SCREW YOU PAL, I LOVED IT GODDAMMIT! IT WAS BETTER THAN WILD HOGS!No but seriously, I liked it a lot. I thought it was a pretty great audio/visual experience, especially in the theater
I'm tempted to see Tomorrowland only because it's middling critical response and bad first weekend. Says to me the studio didn't know how to market it (ie it was more interesting than your average superhero film).
I'm one of the few humans in the world who hasn't seen it. Never interested me I guess.
I don't buy that. They're producing like a million Star Wars movies.
Yeah, it didn't do gangbusters, but for a sequel to a movie 30 years earlier, that's actually pretty solid. Mad Max is facing the same thing; WB would probably like a higher total, but it's a sequel to a cult movie from three decades ago, at least it's cracking triple figures here.
I have not heard of this... film.
The ring announcer in Snatch might be my favorite minor non character ever.
I lost interest almost immediately. I was doing nothing else at the time except watching the movie... and found it hard to follow.
Oh sure, it didn't do badly, but I'm assuming the suits didn't feel that profit margin was enough to justify doing a 3rd. They expected a lot more with it, and considering marketing costs, etc, I'm willing to bet they didn't pocket a whole lot for that endeavor.
It made $6 million opening weekend (again, with 3D charges), so it came and went pretty damn quick
That's what she said.
You know it didn't interest me either, but I sat and watched it at home with my special lady friend and it was good. It's exactly what it looks like... but extremely well done... like... to perfection.
Yeah reports were saying Disney was looking to make it for like a third less than Legacy.
But... like... this is a nationally released movie? I almost never watch television February through September, so I'm out of the loop.
Ashy Larry in Spider Man 2 for meWHOOOAAA...he stole that guy's PIZZAS!
On 3,000 screens
Yeah, but you see everything in theaters.
Oh, it's getting dark again. There is potential for further precipitation.
i went five blocks up from my house for a beer and noticed the parking lot was wet. Asked them and they said it freaking poured for a minute, but at my place, nothing
Starting to get so hyped for Jurassic World. Can't wait.
Macklin....you son of a bitch...
... I knew you'd pop in with a specific. But how does that compare with Mad Max?
"I wanted this to be professional. Efficient, adult, cooperative, not a lot to ask. Alas, your Professor Dumbledore did not see it that way so he won't be joining us for the rest of his life."
The more I read about it... the less I want to see it.
I'd say that might have a built in fan-base by now. Even I've heard tell of this Stars War a few times by now.
They already made a movie about dinosaurs years ago.
I'd be up for it. For some reason this company has given up on holiday shows in the US
RAVEN AND SANDMAN VOLUME 1
Interesting story here about WWE 2K16.http://www.syfygames.com/news/article/lawler-says-wwe-2k16-is-all-about-austin-316/The idea of the Attitude Era mode focusing on Austin sounds like an amazing idea and a great way to celebrate 20 years of the catchphrase. It makes me think of the Michael Jordan mode from NBA 2K a few years back.
Lol hell yeah dude.
Rollins/Ambrose, as always, has the potential to break ****. And as always, it probably won't happen, because it'll probably be overbooked to shit.
Also, it's the most boring fucking shit ever that doesn't translate to any real world application other than becoming an English teacher.
It was called Land of the Lost, starring Will Ferrell. That didn't work out so well.
I can't imagine being the person who says "One dinosaur movie is enough for me, thanks."
If you can go to one with a few friends it will be a blast. I've never known a soul that would be interested in going to the couple annual Rochester shows.
An Austin mode? Fuck yeah
They released Tomorrowland two weeks after a ***** Mad Max movie and three weeks after a ****+ Age of Ultron movie. What did they expect?
I haven't seen the picture. I have an extremely strict no-Ferrell policy.
That had nothing to do with it. It was just a shitty movie.
If I get to re-enact the Hart Foundation, DX, and original Corporation feuds, this will make ALL the money!
WWE going back to the Attitude Era well. One of these days, that strategy is going to backfire, wouldn't you think?
Their best match was the one on Raw recently.
Eventually. But right now, a lot of their gaming audience are late 20s, early 30s who grew up in that time. To go back to the Jordan example, you would think that going to that well wouldn't have blown up as much as it did, but adding that made NBA 2K one of the best games to come out in that year.
I watched the episode of Star Trek TNG the other day where Sarek is supposed to conclude a treaty, and only he can do it, but he's got emotion syndrome and is losing his shit so Captain Picard has to mind meld with him to balance him out long enough to do the job.It holds up.
