  1. I think if the small group of terrible people who stole from the larger group of awful people also helped to create the large market of idiots specifically so they could corner that market, then they are ultimately also responsible for the existence of the large group of awful people or at least their empowerment as a 'demographic." Now maybe I just want to see Steve Banon and Curt Shilling naked in the stocks being stung in the nutsack by murder hornets so badly that I will continue to spin this web forever...
  2. Waiting for the: "HOW DARE THE DEEP STATE ARREST THESE MEN THAT STOLE MONEY DIRECTLY FROM ME!!!!!!!" tweets from the dumbest people on this clown car of a planet.
  3. Oh jseus O god... is this the first sign that COven has convened and her re-emobdiment is emanant? We all got complacent it's been so long...damn our dam eyes!
  4. Alternately they schedule them to play 45 games in 30 days and they finish 7-43 which would be just as awesome and they would still be a game ahead of the Pirates.
  5. 5-3 baby!!!!!! All we need is one series against the Pirates.
  6. Mikey Rooney in BOYS TOWN from 1938 (hat). But it's somehow also a reboot of TWINS from 1988 (enormous size of the man) and Batista is starring with a holograph of Mickey Rooney from the year 3000 (futuristic stare) and they're gamblers on a riverboat from the 1890s like in MAVERICK from 1994 (vest) and they help win World War 2 from the 1940s (hat again) because Big Dave wished for it like in THE INCREDIBLE MR. LIMPET (bow tie) from 1964 and this is all somehow happening in 2020 (you reading this).
  7. BREAKING: (Stamford CT): WWE ANNOUNCES NEW TOUT PRO PLUS. Receive a 4 second personalized message from Seth Rollins for only $99.99. 10% of which will go to King Corbin himself (Seth Rollin's 10% subject to WWE Licensing and logistics fees).
  8. THis movie also changed me. Running out immediately and renting this the day it became available and running home and watching it and in the first half hour a little voice in my head beginning to grow louder whispering: "wait...but...maybe...okay...so movies can sometimes be...bad...and sometimes bad people can take something that is beautiful and destroy it...but why?" By minute 57 it is louder... "so...either incompetence or carelessness or they had bad intentions to start with. What if most people most of the time are like this instead of the good way..." By the closing credits I was running back to the store to buy the Repo Man soundtrack and was screaming out loud; "HOW CAN YOU SAY WHAT MY BEST INTEREST IS? HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT MY BEST INTEREST IS????"
  9. When I first tentatively lurked here and even more shakily posted my first question about Megumi Kudo back in late '99 I was juuuuust getting back into wrestling after having "grown out of it" around '89 or so and missed most of everything in the nineties. I had recently seen a clip of Foley promos and another of the infamous "chopee your peepee" bit on like real player and thought "I think there might be something here speaking profoundly to my dramatic sensibilities...." I had a lot of catching up to do. I literally knew nothing not just about recent WWE history, or about Japan, Mexico, ECW, WCW or anything else. Hell, since my initial childhood fandom had ended while still in late childhood, and well before the internet, I still had no idea about what "wrestling" was other than the same basic "It's fake" maybe with a qualifying "but hey a 300 pound guy jumping off a turnbuckle onto another 300 pound guy and somehow not hurting each other is still impressive, right?" that I had when I was 11 (along with a stubborn instinctive understanding that it was always Piper and Macho who really mattered). As I was being pulled into this miraculous modern comedia dell'arte/improvised stunt show/soap opera/concert/geek show that is wrestling and peeling the layers of things about it that are astounding, disgusting, fascinating, and still mysterious, it was crazy how quickly DVDVR board jumped out as the only place in that era of IWC that captured the depth and breadth of all that mystery and history and somehow managed not to be snobby (or at least not for too long on any one idea before a corrective streak of shame and contrarianism kicked in), not to be gross and un-inclusive, to always be sneakily intellectually challenging while playing charmingly dumb, and to be a place where even I felt I could occasionally post with my next-to-nothing actual knowledge of wrestling and my tendency to favor the drama and schtick of it over the w*rkr%te without getting blasted for it. Shit I don't think I can name many other things in my life I've stuck with without getting bored of or disillusioned about for 21 months let alone 21 years. Maybe the movie MEATBALLS and the t.v. show COLUMBO. DVDVR, MEATBALLS, and COLUMBO are the things we should have sent up in Voyager.
  10. I can't do it. I have the old tin box and I just can't pull the trigger on $120 or $160 for a few (albeit neat) new extras and new scans. But if I didn't have the old box this would be the easiest decision to pre-order something I've ever run across. At least since the Scream Factory Halloween set.
  11. wow...it's too many layers...it's too much at once...I'm having trouble fitting it all...PULL UP...PULLLLLL UPPPPPPPPBATISTAFASHIONWWWWEEEEEEIIIIIIIIAAAAAAACCCCCCCCHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!
  12. If Vince does nothing this year but poach any of the costume designers for Kpop boyband videos, 2020 will be redeemed for the whole world and wrestling will be saved.
  13. There is no better line of dialog to bump into when watching a movie than this: Guy: "We'll never catch them this way. We'll have to cut through the Forbidden Zone." Other Guy: "The Forbidden Zone?" Me: oH, shit... alternate version: Guy: "We'll never catch them this way. We'll have to cut through the Forbidden Zone." Other Guy: "The Forbidden Zone? You seriously named it the Forbidden Zone? Like, you couldn't be more helpful like "he don't go here because there are giant spiders zone or the If you touch the water here you will turn into a blob of flesh"zone?? Note; The particular movie in question tonight where this line was spoken was the Roger Corman/Cirio Santiago post-apocalypse movie THE SISTERHOOD and in this particular case the Forbidden zone was forbidden because of and Does anyone know of a comprehensive list of movies where there is an explicitly named Forbidden Zone? Also note: Watch The Sisterhood. It's really fun. Yes, there's a lot of "We have no money so drive these shitty cars around in this rock quarry." But there's also a neat feminist (for 1988) plot and some fairly complicated (for a Mad Max ripoff) characters and that ice skating lady from FOR YOUR EYES ONLY who talks to a hawk. Plus witches, swords, grenade launchers, Robert Patrick's wife, a bad guy with a conscience who is driven by a somewhat sympathetic back story but is still pretty bad, 100s of Filipino extras pretending to be mercenaries, zombies, cultists, and various other factions, the guy from Automan: The Lady from Knight Rider, a tank (and other various military equipment rented from the Filipino army for $40/day), a great synth score, driving, horseback riding, more driving, rocks....lots and lots of rocks, one badass um...dune trike???? (I don't know motorcycle stuff), various other jalopy "war wagons", a Forbidden Zone, A Hall of the Sisterhood, A High Priestess, gratuitous boobs, the hunters becoming the hunted, a guy named "Lord Crack" (I think??? doing a Dennis Hopper impression), a dungeon full of sexy witches (which is really just a problem waiting to happen), literally a full platoon of the Filipino army in their uniforms moonlighting as Lord Crack's guys, a giant lady force ghost-ex-machina, and cetera. The baddies: The Goodies: A talking hawk: I give it: All hail, Lord Crack.
