I got off work a little after 2:30 am I believe and didn’t get to bed until slightly after 4am Saturday morning. My lovely lady E woke me for breakfast at what seemed like 8am and I was soon off to be at my sister’s house at 10am to teach several of the women in my family DDP Yoga. I arrived slightly late to see everyone there and ready. I played a few tracks off the new Wu-Tang Clan’s A Better Tomorrow while everyone got situated and to let my mother and sisters hear a few things in particular. Ironically enough this and a couple texts to my mother on Tuesday led her to say “Yeah, I’d really like to listen to their music.” What?! I replied “I never expected to see that!” and I don’t believe I have figured it out yet either. (more…)

One of the most unfortunate drawbacks of being a pro wrestling fan is the absolutely awful video games that have been made that we wrestling fans force ourselves to play trying to achieve the smallest amount of fun in all the layers of bad programming throughout the years. Knowing this to be true, I have spent years tormenting myself with bad game after bad game, finally coming to a point where I feel I couldn’t be used and abused by all these horrible games anymore than I already have. These days I still play the occasional pro wrestling game, only I am much more specific on which I spend my time. I started with 8-bit graphics going through 16-bit to 3-D polygons all the way to text-based and back to 2-D sprites! That’s right, I’ve went from the 80’s 8-bit graphics on the Nintendo Entertainment System through all the flashy 16-bit button-mashers on Super Nintendo and 3-D graphics of the Playstation, Dreamcast, PS2, Xbox, and Gamecube. Only to end up playing a text-based pro wrestling game on the PC (with the only visual art being the animated stills of the wrestlers, belts, and logos) and a 2-D sprite-based graphic engine on the PS2/PSN/Dreamcast.
I have never taken the New Year resolution very serious. I suppose I always allowed the view of others’ failures to cheapen the overall idea. It wasn’t until 2013 when I realized I should set a New Year’s resolution for myself. I thought about what it was that I wanted to do and it wasn’t long before I realized my goal.
