The Man Called Sting

I'm a Sting lifer.

Yes, I just said that.

I’ve followed his illustrious career from his time with the late great Ultimate Warrior. I’ve enjoyed how he evolved as a wrestler on screen, from Blade Runner Flash to Surfer Sting to Crow Sting to Insane Icon (Joker/Riddler) Sting. I’ve seen him in all his glory.

Some have said that he made the mistake of never coming to the WWE when they were the WWF. If I recall correctly, he didn’t like a lot of the AE stuff and he stood his ground.

But, get this, if he had gone over, he would have forfeited boat loads of money. I’m sure some fans are saying moneys isn’t everything, but if he hadn’t taken it, what would have happened if he had bombed? Think hard about it, the risk about losing possibly five to tens of millions of dollars, is hard to step away from.

So I preface that with the announcement that happened on Sunday with him signing with the beast that helped to put his former employer out of business (ratings played a HUGE part, amongst other things) and ultimate buying said company and doing nothing with it, was amazing.

I haven’t bought a new videogame in years.

Hell, I’m still riding my PS2. I’ve yet to get WWE All-Stars! And I own a hell of a lot of wrestling games too.

So now, he and he alone will make me want to save some coin and get a PS3, just to play has him.

You get 2 generations of him, Surfer Sting and Crow Sting.

So Sting, one of my favorite wrestlers ever, you’ve made this old girl happy.

You’ve made her smile.

You’ve made her watch that damn commercial like 10 times already.

You’ve done it!

The only other 2 people who could have done would have been the late Bad News Brown and the late Macho Man. Yeah, Macho Man was in the game, but it’s not the same the way they did with Warrior when he was put in.

That shirt that they have on WWE Shop for Sting, I own the WCW version of that.

Good times.

P.S. I’m a nut for face-painted wrestlers.

I'm Digging This New Thing Here

I''m digging the new look. Of course there are kinks, but I'll get over it.

You all really did the overhaul. It's much better than most and the other site I use has yet to fix their 'issues' and it's been years too.

TV shows I watched

Hello to all who are still around and read blogs.

I haven't blogged in a while, because my head has been all over the place. Life is an interesting creature.

The TV Shows I have enjoyed. Yes the fall season has ended, and of course I'm probably late as all hell, but things happen.

Once Upon A Time

As you can see, when you look at the top of this blog, you see the photo of my favorite TV villain in long time. I'm a sucker for great evil female villains, with a tough of some heart, and Regina is one of them. I'd put her on par with Kate from Days of Our Lives and Dorian from One Life To Live.

cred

Lana Parilla who is the Evil Queen, play sit in such a manner that you root for her to get her comeuppance. I've never, ever been one to root for the heroes in a lot of the fairy-tales, so the villains were always my favorite. She does he job so well that you forget what the show's about. Once Upon a Time was my top show this season and that's rare, because football was on too, along with Pro-wrestling at times.

Lost Girl

I stumbled upon this after WWE Raw was over and I was just flipping and at midnight, the re-peat of the "Oh Kappa, My Kappa" episode. For some reason, it had me rolling and I knew I wasn't supposed too.

It's a Canadian show that SyFy has gotten the rights to air over here in the states. Thank you SyFy!

The cast is here:

From left to right they are Trick, Hale, Dyson (sitting), Bo (the star/heroine of the show), Kenzi (her best friend) and Dr. Lauren.

It's a well written show with twists and turns and names that you wonder where you get them from.

Desperate Housewives (I'll miss them)

I'll admit this much, I barely watched the last season leading up to this one. What I had to do was read some summaries of the show to get to where I was going with this one.

I felt the series finale was done well, with just one thing missing and was was Edie. It's shame that things escalated the way they did.

The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes (I'll miss them)

First off, yes they are being cancelled. they are being cancelled for, get this, a show named "Avengers Assemble" a a tie in series to the good movie that was put out this summer, which I saw.

The show has been so flawless and for Disney to kill a show, yet again, pisses me off!

ThunderCats (to be cancelled)

As a person who is usually against re-booting or re-doing a show or movie, I was hell bent on not enjoying this, but man was I proved wrong.

I am used to a deep voiced muscular handsome Lion-O and I get a scrawny kid who sounds like he's going through puberty. But even without what the original Lion-O had this scrawny version has made me a fan. I've actually stopped comparing it to my 80s fave too.

Spartacus

First off, Mr. Andy Whitfield, the original Spartacus dies on Sept. 11 2011, so we got a new fella to try and fill his shoes, Liam McIntyre. This season saw deaths and so many other gruesome things happen.

Illythia and Lucretia were just so great in their roles. I did not like the guy who portrayed the new Roman person that took over the area where the Gladiators were. He did not click with me at all.

This season was fun and with the next and last season coming up, how they will top it, I have no idea.

WareHouse 13

I was able to catch a marathon about this show and it made me slap myself because I never watched it. It was probably due it being when wrestling is on and shows rarely top it in me watching.

Avatar: Legend of Korra

It's a new Avatar and she's from the Water Tribe. And she has to master, airbending. But she also has to battle the evil Amon (who's secret I figured out after 2 episodes and was proved right during the season finale today), the man who wants to end bending forever.

Welp, those are the shows I watched. I think I forgot some and if I do, I shall write about them again.

Comics

I am reading this book right now:

I'm on page 146 of 168. It's been good so far.

Gaming

I'm still playing Professor Layton and the Curious Village.

Movies to come in another blog. I saw a lot.

Hey

Something will be written soon and it'll be about TV shows and maybe gaming.

Have a good one every body!

The Rabbit That Came and Went In Too Short A Period Of Time

Photobucket

We met on a midwinter's night in January of this year after coming back from a ride with my mom to drop off some donations to people in need.

I had gotten out of the car and I saw this white thing. I thought it was yet another cat. We have lots of strays and try as I may to help keep the population down and educate people, they still do not get them fixed. But I digress.

And what did I do, I ran in the house and found whatever I could find to feed her. I recall as a young one when we had our rabbits, all 22 of them, that we fed them lettuce, carrots and then rabbit food from the pet store.

All we had were carrots and some day old white bread. At first every other day, she'd eat the carrots. Then after a few weeks, no more carrots. Bread was all she ever wanted.

We would come home from church on Sunday and she'd be n the yard scrounging for food. It took me a while to get her back in the backyard. The reason is that we have lots of children on our block and not all kids are nice o animals, so I am a protective person. I do that with my cats too.

Welp as time went by, in the month of March, all the info about said rabbit is told to me. The kids next door were the reason for the rabbit being loose.

One of the kids, we'll call him Bill, was outside, while I was feeding the birds and squirrels their food. Yeah I do that too. But any way, Bill told me that the rabbit is indeed a woman and she is pregs. His friend or cousin has the dad, but the mom did not get along with either the cat or the dog, so he let her loose. That pissed me up because it made no sense. Why set the animal loose and not give them to the **** school so kids can learn how to take care of said animal? Or give her to us, we are the designated animal protector people. Ugh.

The rabbit, I named he Floppy, had her babies. She had a lot. I lost count at 8, were born and moved to a burrow under my annoying neighbor's tool shed. The father of the girl who lives next door is an ass, so visiting them was not an option. They caught one and gave it to a friend of their family because she did some research and found out that she can handle the care of the rabbit.

For some reason after that, dead rabbits kept being on our back steps. I live in the basement of my house, yes you can insert gamer/wrestling fan pun there. :D The necks were broken, but not like a human did it, but like an animal did it. I figured it was an animal, just not which kind.

3 were killed and in our yard, so we buried them. The first one bothered me. The second one was fresh and I thought they were alive at first, because they were still soft. I was wrong, the neck was lingy lingy and it was dead. I had a breakdown moment, stayed in shock, was silent for the rest of the night. The 3rd one was at around 1am and I put them in a bag.

After that, the mom refused to come to our yard. Of course that's fine because those are her babies. But one day a few weeks ago, I saw her, talked to her and noticed she was scraggly, her eye was closed shut with stuff on it and she allowed me, for the first time to pick her up. I pick anything up, bugs, animals, birds and so on. I love them.

I brought her in, called my mom downstairs and she cleaned her eye. Floppy clung to me for dear life. I talked to her and reassured her that she was loved. She stayed for about half an hour and then I let her go, never to be seen again.

I came out the next few days looking for her and she was not around to be found. Then out of nowhere, the little girl next door told me that the momma had been killed. she bled to death from the eye. the same f***** eye that my mom cleaned. A cat, the mean one from around the block, supposedly chased her and clawed her eye causing traumatic blood loss.

It hurt and still hurts.

That's the story of Floppy, the white rabbit that was here just in time for Easter (you know the Cadbury kind) and that was nice to see.

Her little ones, the ones that are still alive are doing well and roaming the yard and playing with the squirrels.

That Wascally Wabbit



Hello everyone! I am hoping all is well and all that good stuff.
I know it's been 7 months since I wrote a real blog. I've had my brain focused on other things.


Now onto the meat of the blog.

JULY




Last Summer, I think it was in July, I got went to a concert with two of my closest male friends at Jones Beach. We saw Soundgarden. Boy did they suck major ass. It was one of the worst concerts I have ever been to. They were boring, so damn boring, I wanted to leave, but alas, I was not the one who had the ride. It was $80 set to s***.

This was their setlist:

Searching With My Good Eye Closed
Spoonman
Gun
Jesus Christ Pose
Blow Up the Outside World
My Wave
The Day I Tried to Live
Ugly Truth
Hunted Down
Fell on Black Days
Rusty Cage
Outshined
Beyond the Wheel
Black Hole Sun
Burden in My Hand
Superunknown
4th of July

Encore:
Hands All Over
Loud Love
Like Suicide
Slaves & Bulldozers


First off the set up looked b-level. It's as if they didn't care. I wasn't expecting an elaborate thing the way Manson, Zombie, Godsmack or Priest do it, but man, show us something.

I had never noticed before how much screaming and screeching he did until I heard him. I swear, I was hoping the torture would stop. I was bored, bored I tells ya. They had the never to play encores. That was a waste.




AUGUST




All of the summer, I was entering this Bud Light Free Concert Series they were having through Live Nation. I had wanted to see Motley Crue, but I didn't win that one. I won a 2 tix for a concert of my choice for the month of August. Def Leppard dropped out to I got to see Whitesnake as Jones Beach just like Soundgarden. Anyone who knows me, knows of my love for hair/smut/sludge/sleaze metal. Though they were never heavy, they got lumped in there for some reason. I always said they were Love Rock.

Well, I got my sister to go with me, because no one I chill with likes or wants to admit that they dig this sort of thing. We got there a little late due to a wrong turn.

It was their Forevermore album tour. Coverdale got the band, or what was left of it, back together. They toured with Sebastian Bach and Tesla. We missed Bach (I didn't care) and Tesla (who I really wanted to see).

The seats for the tickets were shit, but since it wasn't sold out, we got primo seats.

Setlist

Best Years
Give Me All Your Love
Love Ain't No Stranger
Is This Love
Steal Your Heart Away
Forevermore
Guitar Duel
Love Will Set You Free
Drum Solo
The Deeper the Love
Bad Boys / Children Of The Night
Here I Go Again

Encore:
Still of the Night
We Wish You Well


My sister, who knows I love them, knew the songs too, which is rare. She's not a rocker, but since we are totally stuck in the 80s and 90s for a lot of music, she remembered them.

One thing I hated, it was the song that really got them over as a HUGE MEGA STAR BAND, seemed be all these fans were waiting for. Really people? I was waiting for my jam, which was the encore part, Still Of the Night. It was a great, great show and I'm so glad I got to see them.

My next concert might be Evanescence. I've seen them 3 times. Hopefully they bring it like always. My sis and I are trying to see some Indy Wrestling this year that's in our area.

My birthday was also in the month, I turned a double number. I got 2 games, Professor Layton and the Curious Village and Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box.

September/October/November/December


Nothing huge happened. My semi- wrestling blog on tumblr has been good. Right now, I'm in the midst of writing about my favorite black wrestlers that I grew up watching. It says I have 50 followers, but only 3 correspond with me and out of the 3, only 1 is about wrestling. Go figure.


As for TV shows, that's another blog to come.

Media stuff


Has anyone noticed how ESPN has turned into a sports CNN? Think about it.

On CNN from 9-9pm each night, it's the same stories but with different hosts.

On ESPN (the Sportscenter one), from let's say 1am-3pm, it's the same stories with different hosts after a few hours at a time with the same people.

ESPNEWS is HLNTV.

ESPNU is just s***.

ESPN classics, I have no idea where it went. I know it's on, but it's on a station number that I probably never use.

ESPN2 has turned into the Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith show.

It's rather annoying.

One good thing is, Jim Rome is gone. He's going to CBS Sports on April 3rd to do his show there. I swear, if he asked questions correctly and let a person get a word in edge-wise, the world would be better. I can't say I'll miss him.




MEANING BEHIND THE TITLE


The photo up above with said rabbit, showed up in January on a rainy day. My sister had seen he or she and he or she has yet to leave.

He's wascally because, like Bugs Bunny, he or she is very slick. He was caged, due to how his side looked when I first saw him. the rabbit is a cutie and I hope to catch him and take care of him.






GAMING


I have been playing the Diabolical Box. I've logged almost 7 hours on it already.





Thanks for perusing my blog
