    Skimming through Sling this morning, looking for something to watch.


    ABC Family is a pretty shitty channel.

    How is CBC's sports coverage these days anyway?

    ReplyDelete
  4. I can't remember a FA cup final, I have cared less about.
    I very vaguely want Arsenal to win,

    ReplyDelete
  5. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  6. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Edge is always good with his polite jabs at WWE.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I get the feeling he isn't the biggest fan of the people that run the place.

    ReplyDelete
  9. In the doc, he talks about how Paul was the first guy to believe in him as a singles guy.

    ReplyDelete
  10. On Jericho's podcast his exact words were "I didn't like a lot of the people I worked with."

    ReplyDelete
  11. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Even his own DVD is kinda hostile.

    ReplyDelete
  13. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  14. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  15. It will probably be way fun.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Will you be the Chavo to my Eddie?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Pass if you can, fail if you must. But always cheat

    ReplyDelete
  18. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  19. 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

    ReplyDelete
  20. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Can you steal a copy?

    ReplyDelete
  22. And he sounded so happy to be able to say it too.

    ReplyDelete
  23. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  24. That's why English was my worst subject. Can't cheat. Have to do lots of writing and reading filler. Fuck that.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I only like them for their Disney animated/Pixar/Harry Potter marathons, everything else can F off

    ReplyDelete
  26. I had 25 texts to study for this one. It's painful!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Fingers crossed for him, bud!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I kinda felt he was being too NICE

    ReplyDelete
  29. Redtube.com.

    Wholesome family entertainment.

    If your family is waaaaaay fucked up.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'll send a prayer your way, brother

    ReplyDelete
  31. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Uh huh. Where's your punny humor now, tree boy?

    Seriously. Relax and do the best you can. You'll be fine.

    ReplyDelete
  33. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  34. You can never go wrong with the synths on the Big Poppa hook

    ReplyDelete
  35. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hello to all my friends here on the Blog!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Best wishes to you and yours. I miss my grandparents every day.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Playing 2k14. Who knew Balls Mahoney would be so fun to use?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Usually when they do that now they just rematch the exact same match on Raw the next night anyway. More people see it then.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Stranger In The AlpsMay 30, 2015 at 11:04 AM

    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.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Stranger In The AlpsMay 30, 2015 at 11:05 AM

    That's pornography, isn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  42. I always get this weird kind of anxiety when they announce the titles expiring on netflix each month.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Jeremy spoke on, the bloooooog today.

    ReplyDelete
  44. You are a gentleman and a scholar.

    Check out the Jim Crockett Promotions group on Facebook. Really cool old school fans there

    ReplyDelete
  45. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I don't know, but i'll know it when I see it.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Shelton BenjaminMay 30, 2015 at 11:17 AM

    I vote for me

    ReplyDelete
  48. Should have went with "I choose me."


    /KellyTaylor'd

    ReplyDelete
  49. Shelton BenjaminMay 30, 2015 at 11:18 AM

    Right now it's 2-2... or is it 3-1?

    ReplyDelete
  50. And the New Jack shoot is the winner

    ReplyDelete
  51. I feel like swordfish, but I don't feel like going all the way to the fishmonger.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Shelton BenjaminMay 30, 2015 at 11:21 AM

    Was I the 3rd New Jack vote or the 2nd Brown vote?

    Hmmmmm?

  53. Thaddeus MountainMay 30, 2015 at 11:21 AM

    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.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Shelton BenjaminMay 30, 2015 at 11:22 AM

    I thought he got rid of the Family Feedbag

    ReplyDelete
  55. Shelton BenjaminMay 30, 2015 at 11:29 AM

    I asked him if he wanted pizza and he said he wasn't hungry!

    What a jerk!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Thad, you didn't finish your spaghetti and Moeballs!

    Quiet you fool, it could be ours!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Adam "Colorado" CurryMay 30, 2015 at 11:32 AM

    New Jack.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I've been listening to the jazz station lately. There's hardly any commercials and the DJs aren't obnoxious.


    Yeah...jazz.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Stranger In The AlpsMay 30, 2015 at 11:36 AM

    I stayed up late watching this so I could review it just for you all:

    ReplyDelete
  60. My favourite show is called Music to Listen to Jazz By.


    It's usually jazz.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Ducks/Blackhawks should be nuts tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  62. GIVE ME BACK MY SON!!!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Stranger In The AlpsMay 30, 2015 at 11:40 AM

    Jazz is my go to music for bedtime earbuds.

    ReplyDelete
  64. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I'm sure Reigns will be involved with the WWE title match interfering or something. Orton, who knows? lol

    ReplyDelete
  66. I wish he was joining The Authority but WWE seems fully vested in this Sting and Luger gimmick

    ReplyDelete
  67. I don't think WWE is fully invested in anything.

    ReplyDelete
  68. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uiALQwD2N-s

    ReplyDelete
  69. 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?

    ReplyDelete
  70. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  71. EC should play like a B show. This helps IMO.

    ReplyDelete
  72. 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

    ReplyDelete
  73. So when you end up dead in a ditch, we at least know what direction to point the police?

    ReplyDelete
  74. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  75. yes, thank you very much!

    ReplyDelete
  76. As it's a B/C level "PPV" I wouldn't mind having a ECW style impromptu match or two during the show.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Some folks like to hit it and quit it
    And Id rather stay and play

    Unless she has a bf in jail

    ReplyDelete
  78. Shelton BenjaminMay 30, 2015 at 11:50 AM

    Then why are you your firm's lead accountant?!

    ReplyDelete
  79. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Shelton BenjaminMay 30, 2015 at 11:52 AM

    Here ya go

  82. Theberzerker, #1 HUSS CHOMPIONMay 30, 2015 at 11:54 AM

    Avoid that bar for a good 5-6 months. Good rule of thumb.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Shelton BenjaminMay 30, 2015 at 11:55 AM

    Maybe she was planning on framing you and said she hoped you'd still be her boyfriend when you're in jail

    ReplyDelete
  84. Theberzerker, #1 HUSS CHOMPIONMay 30, 2015 at 11:58 AM

    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.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Shelton BenjaminMay 30, 2015 at 11:59 AM

    Sufferin' Succotash!

  86. Hey, Shelton, you know how I said it would kill you last? I lied...

  87. 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

    ReplyDelete
  89. I'm going to see Roddy Piper tonite.

    ReplyDelete
  90. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  91. A "Great American Bash" over 4th of July weekend would be cool. Just broadcast a house show with American flags all over the place.

    ReplyDelete
  92. You're still not booked.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Next Saturday, it'll be "Hello friends. Welcome to St. Lake City... a tradition unlike any other."

    ReplyDelete
  94. Extant1979 - Extreme SuperstarMay 30, 2015 at 12:07 PM

    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.

    ReplyDelete
  95. BattleBowl would be awesome

    ReplyDelete
  96. Big.


    Happy movie or sad movie?

    ReplyDelete
  97. Finishing September 1996 if anyone wants to watch Nitro

    ReplyDelete
  98. Disney put the kibosh on Tron 3, saying they had no good release window for it over the next three years.

    Goddammit

    ReplyDelete
  99. Gotta make room for superhero release every month. Or Frozen.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Thats still my go to game

    ReplyDelete
  101. Maybe he's in for a physically harmless white collar crime.

    ReplyDelete
  102. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  103. "Heh heh heh. I didn't know you liked to get wet."

    ReplyDelete
  104. Never seen 1 or 2. I feel like I've missed nothing.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Elimination Chamber has some serious potential. I'll be disappointed if there aren't at least two ****+ matches.

    ReplyDelete
  106. There's also talk that Tomorrowland flopping hard killed their taste for any sci-fi fantasy stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Ducks/Blackhawks...ahhh, the relaxing and refreshing Game 7, following finally seeing the Rags go down, hehe.

    ReplyDelete
  108. 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

    ReplyDelete
  109. 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

    ReplyDelete
  110. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  111. So is 50mm like 2 inches?

    ReplyDelete
  112. 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."

    ReplyDelete
  113. Mars Needs Moms

    Budget: $150 million
    Gross: $39 million

    That's not domestic; that's a worldwide total. With 3D surcharges. Jesus.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Who was that supposed to appeal to? Sci fi? Moms? Kids? Families?

    ReplyDelete
  115. A quick check shows Tron: Legacy grossed $400 million worldwide on a $170 mil budget. Probably didn't help.

    ReplyDelete
  116. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  117. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  118. It was such a fantastic, innovative, almost revolutionary movie, too.

    People have no taste nowadays.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Frozen was good stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  120. I remember Legacy being enjoyable enough and I liked it, but I promptly forgot about it a day later and never saw it again.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Please come back with an incredibly fabricated carny story.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Why upset? It's not like Tron 2 was any good...

    ReplyDelete
  123. So I take it... the date at the Old Spaghetti Factory didn't go so well?

    ReplyDelete
  124. I saw it in theaters

    ReplyDelete
  125. I'd have booked a tag team match, playa.

    ReplyDelete
  126. And the main reason why John Carter was renamed.

    ReplyDelete
  127. In theory: all of the above
    In reality: none of the above

    ReplyDelete
  128. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  129. Don't Worry, Be Happy.


    Ooooooo, oooooo oooo oooooo, ooooooooooooo.


    ...don't worry.

    ReplyDelete
  130. 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

    ReplyDelete
  131. 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).

    ReplyDelete
  132. I'm one of the few humans in the world who hasn't seen it. Never interested me I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  133. I don't buy that. They're producing like a million Star Wars movies.

    ReplyDelete
  134. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  135. I have not heard of this... film.

    ReplyDelete
  136. The ring announcer in Snatch might be my favorite minor non character ever.

    ReplyDelete
  137. I lost interest almost immediately. I was doing nothing else at the time except watching the movie... and found it hard to follow.

    ReplyDelete
  138. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  139. It made $6 million opening weekend (again, with 3D charges), so it came and went pretty damn quick

    ReplyDelete
  140. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Yeah reports were saying Disney was looking to make it for like a third less than Legacy.

    ReplyDelete
  142. But... like... this is a nationally released movie? I almost never watch television February through September, so I'm out of the loop.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Ashy Larry in Spider Man 2 for me

    WHOOOAAA...he stole that guy's PIZZAS!

    ReplyDelete
  144. On 3,000 screens

    ReplyDelete
  145. Extant1979 - Extreme SuperstarMay 30, 2015 at 12:51 PM

    Yeah, but you see everything in theaters.

    ReplyDelete
  146. Oh, it's getting dark again. There is potential for further precipitation.

    ReplyDelete
  147. 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

    ReplyDelete
  148. Starting to get so hyped for Jurassic World. Can't wait.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Macklin....you son of a bitch...

    ReplyDelete
  150. ... I knew you'd pop in with a specific. But how does that compare with Mad Max?

    ReplyDelete
  151. "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."

    ReplyDelete
  152. The more I read about it... the less I want to see it.

    ReplyDelete
  153. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  154. They already made a movie about dinosaurs years ago.

    ReplyDelete
  155. I'd be up for it. For some reason this company has given up on holiday shows in the US

    ReplyDelete
  156. RAVEN AND SANDMAN VOLUME 1

    ReplyDelete
  157. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  158. Lol hell yeah dude.

    ReplyDelete
  159. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  160. Also, it's the most boring fucking shit ever that doesn't translate to any real world application other than becoming an English teacher.

    ReplyDelete
  161. It was called Land of the Lost, starring Will Ferrell. That didn't work out so well.

    ReplyDelete
  162. I can't imagine being the person who says "One dinosaur movie is enough for me, thanks."

    ReplyDelete
  163. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  164. An Austin mode? Fuck yeah

    ReplyDelete
  165. They released Tomorrowland two weeks after a ***** Mad Max movie and three weeks after a ****+ Age of Ultron movie. What did they expect?

    ReplyDelete
  166. I haven't seen the picture. I have an extremely strict no-Ferrell policy.

    ReplyDelete
  167. That had nothing to do with it. It was just a shitty movie.

    ReplyDelete
  168. If I get to re-enact the Hart Foundation, DX, and original Corporation feuds, this will make ALL the money!

    ReplyDelete
  169. Extant1979 - Extreme SuperstarMay 30, 2015 at 1:12 PM

    WWE going back to the Attitude Era well. One of these days, that strategy is going to backfire, wouldn't you think?

    ReplyDelete
  170. Their best match was the one on Raw recently.

    ReplyDelete
  171. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  172. 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.
