On the Air...

Tonight, you and your family can hear me on SportsRadio 1310 The Ticket discussing the events of the day and specifically, a review of the WWE's latest Pay-Per-View Vengeance.

For those of you who are not in the Dallas area, you can lisen to it online at the Ticket's website. The show starts at 8PM and lasts till 10.

Take care.

Charity. Without all that work.

Hey Guys.

Fellow blogger and P1 Devin is involved in a really neat project for charity. Here's where you can read more about it. If you can, kick in a few bucks.

One of my hobbies/obsessions is toys, and lately the Lego Ccorporation has sucked me in with their latest release of the Bionicle line. I thought I was safe, since their last release [the Bohrok-Kal] were more or less repaints.

Enter the Rahkshi. All I can say is that there are times I'm glad that huge corporations like Wal-Mart can undersell all their competitors. Yeah, a diverse marketplace is all well and good, but give me my Rollbacks and I'll shut up.

If anyone cares, here and here have all the info you could ever want about these toys.

Finally, I read where the ratings for The Price is Right have been increasing among the younger demographics that all the advertisers are looking for. You know, you can have your Fear Factors and Dating/Marriage Shows, but for me, true drama is when that little mountain climber dude is nearing the top of the hill. Or when that Plinko chip is bouncing its way toward the bottom of the board and possibly the $10,000 slot.

Man, I need some sleep.

Hey Kids! Depressed yet?

Some free advice.

Say you're at your pc. You start thinking, "whatever happened to so-and-so from school? Google's only a click away."

Get up, and leave the room. I just saved you a couple of hours. Go knit something instead.

Nothing makes one feel better about themself than the success of your peers. [I've only been doing this blog for about a week, so for now I'll point out my sarcasm.]

Let me break it down. If you actually have time to look up people you knew back in the day, well, it doesn't bode well for you. Look, I fully place myself in that category. Is it petty and small-minded? You bet your sweet bippy it is.

Of course, if your school experience was a pleasant one...well I have no time for you.

And for an especially uplifting experience, Google old crushes and sweethearts.

But possibly the most important lesson I gan give you is this: Dont drink super-caffeineated drinks a few hours before bedtime.

Tonight? In this very ring?

Sorry for being away. Life had the audacity to intrude.

I kind of wish I wasn't writing this.

I should be watching WWF Raw right now. [It's my blog, so I'll use the F]. But I'm not. I'm still taping it, but it's a good chance that all I'll do is read a recap online.

I wasn't always like this. I've been a pro wrestling fan for almost 8 years. I could tell you all about the storylines, the heels and faces., the whole nine yards.

Then, it stopped being as fun as it once was. It's not like I matured beyond it. To me, it seemed like the writers were more concerned about everything else besides the writing. Plot twists would happen without any explanation, stories were dropped at a moment's notice. "Big Events" would be used to spike the ratings for one night instead of being a logical conclusion. Alsp,It looked like the same guys were getting pushed while those who payng their dues were ignored. This sucks because 1. When the product is good, it takes every good thing from TV, Movies and Sports and blends it together. And 2. It's now become something of a gig for me.

Once a month me and a few other guys gather together to review the latest PPV on the P1 Wild Ass Circus. Heard on Sportsradio 1310 The Ticket. I can still get fired up for the individual matches, but there's less and less of a cohesive thread tying it all together.

The most unfortunate thing is that lately, I'm watching not because I'm interested in what happens next, but that I'm morbidly curious as to how bad it can get before I quit watching entirely.

I'll post again sooner this time, provided something exciting happens to me.

Wednesday, for those of you who don't know, is the day new comic books hit the shelves. So as a public service, here's what I picked up today.

The Crew
X-Treme X-Men
G.I. Joe Frontline

A shout out to the guys at Awesome Comics. Good eggs all.

I wish I had more to write, but not much happened today. That and I want to play some more Vice City before I hit the sack.

Be careful out there.

To know me is to...hate me a little bit less.

So, there you are and here I am. Guess we'll start out with some basics. Male, Twenty-Something, finally starting to get the hang of this 'life' thing. Completely unsure of anything beyond next month.

Almost totally obsessed with Comics, Toys and various Pop Culture ephemera.

I don't really know who's going to read this, but I'll do my best to not be completely boring. I'll even throw in some stuff ffrom my deep dark past when I used to be...a fanfic writer.

I hope that didn't come across as one of those online dating profiles.

Not that I've ever filled out one of them.

Or needed to.

I'll shut up now.
