  1. They had a bunch of nifty double-team shit. I was a big fan of the "Towering Inferno", which was like Demolition's Decapitation Elbow, except Booker would hit a top rope legdrop onto an opponent Stevie had just backbroken.
  2. At best, he is a naturalized citizen, making him ineligible for the office. Can you imagine the outrage once people find out he used to be a headhunter?
  3. I really loved The Young Stallions, but I was like 10 and I seem to remember it being a big deal that they beat Muraco and Orton, and I fucking HATED Bob Orton. Pretty Wonderful is obviously the best of the three teams, and with the couple of title runs, the most successful. I have always thought Roma got a bad rap for the failed Horseman run, but he was perfectly acceptable in any of the mid-level roles he played other than that. I wouldn't go looking for Paul Roma's "best of", but I'm not going to skip a match of his just because, either.
  4. He has said in an interview he doesn't mind she/her or he/him, but is anti- they/them, at least as it pertains to himself.
  5. Turnips on my island are on an upswing, 131 right now and likely spiking tomorrow PM, according to https://turnipprophet.io/ . I'll drop a post here and open my gates when they are hella booming tomorrow.
  6. Anyone on the board writing a thesis about pro wres? This person just found your title!!
  7. So was that revealed before the show tonight? And if so, maybe they should have moved that fucking nameplate, eh?
  8. His thigh is rippling like when WALTER chops the fuck out of someone. When did a dropkick become a strike that needed to make noise? Isn't it enough to just be real pretty and land right on the button?
  9. Our 4 year old is handling this way fucking better than I am, to be perfectly frank. Every couple of days he lets me know "When coronavirus is done going around, we should have a party and invite..." and then he lists basically every family member he can remember. Meanwhile, I am losing my shit because there seems to be no end in sight, and the only things I hear are about "reopening society", except people keep fucking dying, so maybe we back off all that horseshit for a while, eh? And fuck, I live in California, where I thought more folks would be of my same mind!! Whatever, I just need to be more like the little one. Read less news, smoke more dope, that has been my coping mechanism. It hella works, everyone should try it. His school is going really well, although he goes to a private preschool, so we aren't getting the same kind of support that we would from a school district, his teacher is the shit, and has been banging out circle time videos every day for him to do, and she hooked us up with a bunch of sensory-type projects and whatnot like a month ago. Between those things, and our internet searches to find workbooks and learning projects and whatnot, we feel like the education is happening just like it should, but we feel bad that the social aspect of going to school and seeing your friends every day is gone. I feel like our oldest (almost 11, finishing 5th grade) is really lacking in support from his teacher. I have had a few conversations with other parents, and their experience is vastly different with their children's educators. Lots of contact via videoconferencing, emails to go over what is being learned. We don't really have any issue with it because he is such fantastic student and a voracious reader and learner in other ways, but it is disheartening to see this person tasked with the bulk of my child's book-y type education have so little concern for the people in her class. I have been bad about the PE thing for the last few days, because every time the boys and I would go outside so we could play catch, or skate or ride bikes, every kid on the block is looking out the window to try to be out and about together. I have made my feelings known to the parents of these children, but no one seems to give a fuck that I want to keep our households as distant as possible. So to combat that fact, I've been slacking on just letting them go out front. We will take walks at night so the dogs can also get out, but I feel like I'm being a tyrant because I keep on stopping them from good times with their buddies in the neighborhood. However, my wife is a straight up gangster that knew how bothered I am by all that, and she ordered a 14 foot trampoline for our backyard. So we got that setup on Saturday, and the kids have gotten to be outside and active in a way that keeps people the fuck away from us. Thank fuck I have a partner that understands my dumb brain and how to help it be less twisted into knots.
  10. I talked to him a handful of times, and I never got any of the prompts to tell him to come to our place, so I think I would have had to talk to Isabelle and talk shit or whatever the deal is to trigger their ejection. The idea of running someone out of town is super cruel to me. I don't mind if they bring it up, I will totally say yes. But going to the fucking city planner and being all snitch-made is hella weak.
  11. I had the fucking cutest squid move in to our town. His name is Zucker, and he is awesome. We had a very weird-looking rabbit named O'Hare at our campsite yesterday, but we are all full up, or I would have asked him to move to town. I think I prefer the original game's moving system. If you went on train trips to visit your friends, your villagers might move to that town, or they could also decide to up and move if the mood struck them.
  12. Collyer would just use his Dr. Mindbender powers on the lady and win the whole show. I now realize I would totally watch that show if he was on it, trying to hypnotize everyone so he comes out on top.
  13. There is not a single goddamn moment of his in-ring career over the last 10 years or so that I have wanted to miss. CZW is not the vibe I want to watch. I drank that shit up when he was on his way up and on top there. Catch Point was not to be fucked with, and I disagree that the "No-Fly Zone / Better 205" stuff fell flat. I thought it worked just about as well as anything of that nature was going to in that particular fed. I enjoyed it more the first time around in CZW, as it felt like a much deeper issue because of the stand he was taking against ultraviolence. I feel like because he hasn't done anything that has resonated with you, you are being dismissive of the idea that he might get that kind of reaction from anyone.
  14. We have only in the last week or so had really consistent travel sessions. Up until then, we would land on someone's island and maybe get a handful of minutes to explore or whatever before getting kicked. And if you don't travel back of your own volition, none of the stuff you had in your pockets comes with, and none of the new fish/bugs you caught get cataloged because it never had an opportunity to save your progress.
  15. I feel like I haven't seen any prices in the almost 2 months I've been playing that were anything to write home about. Most weeks have been buy prices right near 95-100, and then never big spikes in prices. It's a far greater hassle to make Stalk Market money in this version. Buy price for me this week was 97, I'm sitting on 75 currently. I'm going to try to catalog my prices in on of the turnip predictors for this week coming up and see what I can figure out.
  16. As do I, which is why although I wish he would have gone the other way with his honorific, I didn't see it as a huge deal. It's silly because of the ease in which it could have been avoided, but I didn't consider it to be ill-intended.
  17. It certainly is, and that is also a point I had not considered. I just figured he was trying to put her over for what she had just done, and just made a choice of words that people can find a problem in, even if it was totally innocent on his part. It did lead to her calling herself "The Princess King" for a a couple of weeks, which is for real like the dopest fucking nickname I think I have ever heard, and something I would wear on a t-shirt in a heartbeat. Well, maybe not lead to, but I don't remember her ever calling herself that until after she won the title, and the "king of the mountain" deal was in the match she won the belt in.
  18. Yeah, he called her the king of the mountain or some such shit. I was willing to give him a pass on that until I realized how fucking easy it would have been to call her queen.
  19. For those that might need to re-up, CDKEYS is running a pretty goddamn slamming sale on PS Plus 1 year codes. $30.79. I copped a couple like 3 days ago, and they were $31.99, so you can save even more if you are about to expire, or just want to pay half price to extend whatever time you have left on your current deal.. https://www.cdkeys.com/playstation-network-psn/playstation-plus/1-year-playstation-plus-membership-ps3-ps4-ps-vita-digital-code
  20. I bought a fake I knew was a fake, my wife bought a fake we thought was a fake, and our 10 year old bought what we think is legit, but he hasn't tried to donate it yet. I don't have any interest in the forgery guides or anything like that. Sometimes his stuff is art I well know enough that I can figure it out, sometimes I get burned. Price of doing business with a fella named Crazy Redd. Harv's island is not really anything that holds any interest for me, except for the fact that you can purchase a poster of an islander after you include them in your photos there. Some of the posters are pretty excellent. He's not trying to gaffle you, he just wants you to take photos inside his home studio. Ok, so now that I put it that way, it sounds like he is maybe trying to pull some Terry Richardson shit.
  21. Doolittle broke all of his concerns down in a most righteous thread on Twitter. He makes lots of very excellent points, and points you towards additional reading material should you want to further educate yourself on the statements he is making.
  22. I don't have any idea why he deleted it, but I tend to agree with him. 50 fucking years old, making everyone he comes in contact with look like a million bucks. The dude has kept himself relevant and been just as entertaining as ever before with every reinvention. This is a dude in the twilight of his career using every ounce of his learned skillset to build a brand new national company. That's a pretty goddamn special thing to do.
  23. AWC didn't work up north all that often. I know for sure I saw him on a show or two in the Garage, but I don't think he was booked more than a handful of times. Blitzkrieg I think was only a one time deal. Not like CD, who was here for 5 or 6 shows a year for like 3 or 4 years. And we were just talking about Vic and Erin in another thread not that long ago. APW was the fucking shit. Garage shows were mad fun, but they ran all over the fucking place. So I could wait for them to come to San Jose every month or two, I didn't always have to barge to Hayward to see good wrestling.
