  1. That's what I'm saying. "Home" was this huge hit that kickstarted a whole new, obnoxious genre, but his second album was really spare and kind of a downer. And it just came out last year. So either this guy has the work ethic of Prince or Ryan Adams, or he had an epiphany, "Oh, shit, I'm missing out on a bunch of money right now. Better get a fun album out before the scene is over."

    That isn't even kind of what you said.

  2. I haven't listened to it yet, but I assume this is where he takes a mulligan on his second album and tries to cash in on the bright, jaunty folk-pop genre that he accidentally created with "Home."

    This is the third album.


    And still that song will not die.

  3. Congratulations! You've never had a need to blow off steam!


    Nobody is happy about your hearing loss. I was just pointing out that more good things have happened than bad things. Which is a good thing.

    Now back to your regularly scheduled good news.

  4. I think it was when I was 5 years old and the Undertaker showed up. Before that I don't recall any gimmicks that couldn't be kayfabed to some degree. Terry Taylor really might have thought having a rooster-themed gimmick would get him noticed, Luke and Butch really might be backwoods New Zealanders that greet people by licking each side of their face, Tugboat really might be a fun loving fat dude that just really likes boats and the water (and renamed himself TYPHOON when he turned - dude loves water no matter what), etc etc etc. But why is this zombie dude wrestling? Why is he controlled by a magical urn? What is their motivation? And then Papa Shango showed up and it just got kind of out there for awhile. Still entertaining to watch but kayfabe was dead to me at that point.

  5. 892. "[impact] opened with Bobby Roode out. He said he was the greatest champion in the history of the company and the most dominant, noting he’s two weeks away from setting the record as the longest reigning champion in TNA history, noting he’ll have held the title longer than A.J. Styles, Hardy, Kurt Angle or Sting. That’s like bragging about being the guy who had the longest run as Walter Mondale’s campaign director, or the guy who spent the most time overseeing the building of the Titanic, or the longest reigning TV producer of the XFL. He talked about how last week he embarrassed the competition when he left Mr. Anderson, Jeff Hardy and RVD laying at the end of the show. Even though he’s been around for 20 years, it wasn’t until the way Roode said “RVD” that it ever even occurred to me that RVD sounds like a disease you get banging sluts. Anderson, RVD and Hardy all came out and starting beating down Roode, until Hardy then attacked Anderson and the two matches were paired off. We had the pull-apart. When WWE agents run out in a pull apart, it looks like they just got out of a business meeting and look silly breaking up fights in suits and ties, even if it does look professional. When Al Snow, D-Lo Brown and Pat Kenney come out, it was like somebody rushed them out of the dart game at the local pub. It doesn’t look as professional, but if your job description entails breaking up fights with 200 pound sweaty guys, it probably makes sense to dress like they do." - (WON 2012-05-21)


    So, is there an actual thing TNA didn't do right here? The whole "longest reigning TNA champion" deal did a lot to push Roode to the next level and get the belt over. It was one of the few good booking decisions that the company has ever made. And Meltzer shits all over it to make a reference to Walter Mondale's campaign directors? Epitome of old man yells at cloud.

  6. Enjoyable show. I enjoyed RVD/Jericho even though apparently I was the only one.


    I think it was a good demonstration of RVD's value. I hope he sticks around. Isn't Jericho due to leave soon?


    His hair though. Dude is in his 40s and has that on his head.


    Would you really want him to come out with short hair?


    And what, no hating on the Punk segment?


    I thought Wyatt and Harper were great, and didn't think Rowan was so bad that it hurt the segment.
