  1. Many years ago when in high school there was this long-ass staircase that one had to walk down to get to the beach in Seattle (if you're from the area and I say "Golden Gardens" you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. Anyway, considering it was like 80-90 some stairs to troop down to reach the switch-back trail going the rest of the way, the end of the stairs was the perfect place to fire up a bowl or two. There was a little concrete landing with a metal garbage can, quite handy to bring a six-pack and be eco-friendly. Then for odd reason, some overly-officious Park Dept. employee had take
  2. He has the "Fuck you, feed me!" look down pat. I assume that he ignored the other neighborhood cats because they were just vanilla midgets that couldn't take his spot.
  3. Things I enjoy Jericho talking about: 1. Wrestling 2. Uhhh... give me a minute here... Things I don't enjoy Jericho talking about: 1. Trump 2. MAGA 3. His shitty band 4. His generally shitty taste in music 5. Anything else
  4. Photo to come later, but having sold off my personal set of the first 18 Axolotl Press books (red-leather bound contributor copies) and the dozen Silver Salamander Press leather-bound Copy #1 of 50 bound thusly for a cool $10K, it is time to reorganize the office. Now that I've emptied half a shelving unit, I will move the Masters of Science Fiction series (my own personal imprint at Centipede Press) and the relevant volumes of Masters of the Weird Tale to the currently empty shelves. Soon to be filled with: Fritz Leiber - MOSF Fritz Leiber - MOTWT (2 Volumes) Richard Wilson - M
  5. Good Lord! Tenryu had entire YEARS post-50 where he didn't have anything less than *** matches. Then of course, our favorite Alabama Junior Heavyweight Champion, Mike Jackson is still pretty spry at 72.
  6. I'm Irish as fuck and I can't stand the sonofabitch. He needs to be repeatedly fisted by Jimmy Saville.
  7. Think that this may have been the point where most fans started to realize that Conor was missing at least the bubble & squeak from his full breakfast. Maybe missing the black pudding too...
  8. I'll have to admit that the whole Jocasta concept left me flat, as did Sleepwalker for that matter.
  9. Good call! Songbird's evolution from Screaming Mimi is one of the better face turns in comics. I don't particularly like what they did with the Destroyer, but at least they did provide a logical arc to the character. I missed the issue, but I'm given to understand that there was a Captain America issue that dwelt on the Angel in retirement. Granted, the character's name was usurped by Warren Worthington, but for such a prolific character you would think he'd have merited a bigger send-off. I could be wrong, but in terms of GA appearances I think that after the big three, (Torch, Namor, & C
  10. Interesting... We're usually pretty close on this stuff, but there's a few spots that I'd debate... As an example, Asuka, even the de-fanged version we have in WWE is still top-5 in the world. Either you're seeing something that I'm missing completely in Himeka, or I'm giving her opponents too much credit. She has a bunch of nice matches with Takase, (both as a partner and as an opponent), but I'd make the point that it's pretty hard to NOT have a good match with Takase, she's just one of those people who makes everyone around her better. That said, I have nothing but respect for a woma
  11. Tentacles is best viewed while eating a big ol' plate of calamari! Just as Jaws is a great dinner movie with shark steaks as the main course. (Shark steaks aren't really all that and a bag of chips, but I'm real big on eating things that would (given the chance) eat you.) How is it possible that I've never seen SHARKTOPUS VS. WOLFWHALE~? And why is it that no one has thought to make a film with giant moray eels running amok? I mean they're rather hideous and surly creatures from the get-go, doesn't take too much imagination to kick the nastiness up to the next level. Also, what about a gi
  12. ^This. In a sport where assholes abound, both of these guys are so damn likable that you could see yourself chatting with either at the local and having a fine time. It could easily go either way, I don't see Stipe making the same sort of mistake that Overeem did. (Let's face it, 'Reem is notorious for leaving himself open for shots like that.) If Francis can land a bomb early in Rd 1 he should take it, the longer the fight goes the more the balance tips to Stipe.
  13. Ah, Japan George... Somewhere I still have a poster of a blood-soaked and tearful Onita showing off his fighting spirit in a burning ring where he has just defeated Mr. Pogo. I think George talked me into spending $40 for the thing. I don't even want to think about how much I overspent on VHS tapes of FMW from him. Good times!
  14. I nominate the Blazing Skull. Great backstory, covers the time between WWII and present day with no potential conflicts. Character is portrayed as borderline batshit insane with an interesting back-up power to his super strength (which hasn't been clearly defined), we know he's super-strong, but like Spiderman, we aren't sure just how strong that is. The back-up power of being impervious to flame is certainly a useful one and rather unique. So why isn't more done with the character? I don't know, definitely one of the Golden Age heroes that a good deal more could be done with. He's certainly g
  15. Another Portland boy who made good! There were always EMTs present when he wrestled in Seattle or Portland in case his opponent needed immediate attention after the dreaded heart punch. Stasiak didn't do much, but he did have that heart punch shit down to a fine art form. In the Northwest the measure of a heel's effectiveness was whether or not the grannies in the front row would try and stab said heel with a hat-pin. Stasiak often resembled a veritable pin-cushion on his way out of the ring via the wrestlers' exit. To this day I'm not sure which was the better place to view matches the Port
