An exhaustive list of intriguing and unsolved disappearances

2020.09.30 13:13 User18940505 An exhaustive list of intriguing and unsolved disappearances

So I’m back!
I just finished editing my previous post, adding those which you guys suggested and removing those that seem to have been solved. This will most likely be the case here, as my research is not wholly up to date.
This is a bit of a broader topic, since a disappearance does not necessarily allude to a crime. As far as I am aware, the majority of these cases have suspicious circumstances.
Hope you find this interesting! Like the previous post, a lot of these cases are in chronological order, but not all. They are accurately categorised into their respective decades, however.

2020.08.08 17:48 Jonesjonesboy Nofap: the official rap

All right, the unofficial one. I wrote this two years ago about PMO, and gaming addiction. Maybe you can see yourself reflected in it?

From earliest in life, what children get dibs on
Is worse than the nightmares of William S Gibson
Tap tap tap like a Skinner pigeon
For crap crap crap of the thinnest smidgen

Build a bridge on the river why, fuck why?
Try and get over it, die and bulldozer it
...end of the movie, gonna fight over closin' it

And whoops, I need a spoiler alert
Here's another, guy: don't poop the toilet at work
Call it "executive time", which is a euphemism
A selec-a-tive lie; in truth it's jism

Too cheapskate even do free date, in lieu as keepsake
Choose to replace with new she-face through deepfake
Who he hate in true meatspace

You're not the hero of your own life
You're the villain in someone else's

Bigger stick up his old butt than stylites
Dig a pit to find gold, but it's pyrite
Pirate Bay files of whooty
Are the closest these days he ever gets to booty
Or creepshots of cutie beauty
Do her call of nature doody duty
Lonely pleasure now his only treasure
Measure for measure

Like Billy S, his play's problematic
's why he fill his days on the mattress
Like Declan M said, poor broken Atlas
-- So unattractive

At first he thought the worst he saw
Too dirty for Rule Thirty-Four
Durst he more? Like Thurston Moore
Rock out to youthful Sonic going down on Doc Robotnik

Durst he more? Worse, all burst, he's sore
Durst he like Fred, gone limp bizkit
Buzzkill business, psychic sickness
A worn stub from too much pornhub

Can't march, tired
Parched, expired
Start a fire, char the higher parts of a Maslov triad
Anything our hearts desire

You're not the hero of your own life
You're the villain in someone else's

[thanks for reading this far!]

2020.05.06 16:33 weezer-mp3 [Weezer fandom] Weezer Facebook is Serious Business

There was a period in 2018 when Weezer kind of underwent a renaissance. Not a creative renaissance, mind you, they released some pretty garbage music, but I guess you could say they achieved some mainstream relevance for the first time in a while. Their cover of Africa was their first single to hit number one on the charts in a decade, their back in forth with Toto got a good amount of coverage, as did their subsequent cover album, they were at the Grammys, and Saturday Night Live did a skit spoofing Weezer fans - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ab5WvwfLuLM
If you haven’t seen it, I would highly recommend watching it, its probably my favourite SNL skit. Some of you might identify with Beck Bennett - “Weezer? I didn’t even know they were still a band.” But I can promise you, the Leslie Jones and Matt Damon characters perfectly represent Weezer fans to a tee. In fact, I’m convinced that the writer of the bit is a member of Weezer Shitposting, which brings us to what I wanted to talk about.
I am, like Matt Damon, ride or die for Weezer. There are few other musicians I have gone this hard for for this long. I also, like Leslie Jones, think that a large portion of their discography is hot garbage. So why am I such a big fan of a band who peaked over twenty years ago? Aside from how much their good records mean to me, honestly, it’s just fun. Weezer fans are hilarious and also (mostly, but we’ll get to that soon) very self aware. We’re under no illusions as to how bad most of their post Pinkerton albums are and it makes for great memes.
Weezer have long been a very online band that is very in touch with their fans. The official Weezer fan club (something else we’ll get to later) has been active since the beginning of the band and there is a lot of communication between the guys and the club, frontman Rivers Cuomo had a series on YouTube in the 2000s where he tried to collaboratively write a song with fans (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thYRy9MBY_c&list=PLB6DB0F1773920F9B another thing I would recommend watching, truly a dadaist masterwork), the whole Africa thing came about when a 14 year old on Twitter started a tongue in cheek hashtag, and Rivers regularly screenshots the memes people send him on Snapchat to post on his Instagram.
As you can imagine, with a following this dedicated, scuffles are inevitable and there have been numerous blow ups in the bands long history. Someone could probably do a writeup on the Pinkerton debacle but I feel like that’s pretty common knowledge. I’m going to be focussing on the Facebook shit because that’s the stuff I’ve been around for. But if you know anything about the earliest Weezer forums and All Things Weezer board, please comment below. Or better yet, make a post for it because I am dying to know the hairy details! (side note: does anyone know the real details about how the crushing version of You Won’t Get With Me Tonight leaked? Because I’m sure I read the story about Pat but I can’t remember where and I can’t find anything written about it online)
Weezer Shitposting vs. Weezer Fanclub
The two major Weezer fan groups on Facebook are the Weezer Fan Club and Weezer Shitposting. The Weezer Fan Club group is the group for members of the official Weezer Fan Club. Only members of the Fan Club can be a part of it, and you have to pay to be part of the Fan Club. Being part of the club gives you access to exclusive merchandise, competitions, exclusive news, and meet and groups. Karl, the bands official archivist, runs a lot of their social media and is kind of known as the fifth member of Weezer, is part of the group. Weezer Shitposting is exactly what it says on the tin. Open to everyone, a place for sharing the most lowbrow and online memes, which primarily focus on how much we hate the band and how bad they are. I am a member of the Shitposting group and I love it. I am not a member of the Fan Club.
Weezer Shitposting has the basic reasonable guidelines that you’d expect about not harassing people etc., the Fan Club is a lot more strident. I guess you could expect the Fan Club to enforce a little more decorum given that it’s the official wing of the band, but they really dial it up to 11.
As I said before, a lot of the material in Shitposting mocks the band. Most of that criticism is light hearted, some of it is a more serious critique. I can’t say any of it is unwarranted. None of it is particularly mean spirited and its not like the band has never done anything problematic [see: Pinkerton, Brian (BELIEVE ME WE WILL GET TO HIM), Pat(??? Once again hit me up with the tea about IWLGWMT)], but you could not get away with posting any of the stuff in Shitposting in the Fan Club.
What’s more is that a lot of the time the mods in the Fan Club are insanely puritanical. Talking about sex or drugs, even in reference to Weezer songs that are about those things or aspects of the band’s history involving them, is not allowed. You will be scolded by the moderator and have your thread deleted, or you will be outright banned. Even swearing will get you told off/possibly kicked out. Which is pretty hilarious given some of Weezer’s songs - Do You Wanna Get High?, Hash Pipe, Tired of Sex and Across the Sea are just the ones I can think off the top of my head. Also, Rivers Cuomo used to be a bit of a pill fiend back in the day. My absolute favourite piece of little known Weezer trivia is that Rivers was good buddies with Fred Durst in the early 2000s, a friendship he can barely remember because of the drugs that eventually dissolved when he stopped using. My second favourite is Fat Mike from NOFX saying that when they were on Warped Tour together Rivers would show up at his door every morning to awkwardly ask for drugs.
Anyways, Fan Club has very strict rules which are pretty ridiculous considering the bands’ lyrics and history. So, there have been many times when Weezer Shitposting members have been kicked out of Fan Club or not allowed to join because of the insane standards of purity. What is extra shitty about this is, as I said earlier, these people pay for membership to the Fan Club and doing so is hardly cheap. It’s $60 for lifetime membership, which is the only bundle there is. There are perks but you need to be part of the Facebook group for a good number of them, like the exclusive updates, contests, messages from the band members and from what I can tell most of the communication around Fan Club meet and greets with the band happens in that Facebook group. There is also no refund if you get kicked out of the Facebook group.
I thought that that was the extent of the drama between the Fan Club and Shitposting but in trying to find information for this post I found out that Karl (‘fifth member of Weezer’, remember) blew up at Shitposting members for criticising the mods. He called them names, demanded they apologise and I'm assuming they definitely would have been banned afterwards.
BNF!!!
To clarify, BNF stands for 'Big Name Fan', referring to members of fans who are idolised within the fandom who kind of have their own following. I guess these people don't technically qualify given that basically no one liked them, except for the last guy. But these people are notable enough that even though they are no longer in the group, the group basically uses them as memes.
Most of the members of Weezer Shitposting are fucking legends. However, there are a few who have achieved notoriety and were subsequently banned from the group.
The first person I’m going to call G. G was banned from the group for being misogynistic towards female members of the group. More specifically, he called some of them ‘chubsters’, told them to cover up and made fun of one girl’s breast size. That was the end of that, but then someone took a photo of a car with a Weezer sticker and a MAGA sticker on its bumper and posted it to the group. Then, we found out it was G’s car. No one was surprised.
Another I’m going to call Y. A lot of their harassment occurred on Instagram but they were also a fairly active member of Weezer Shitposting on Facebook. I wasn’t a victim of theirs but I did speak to them a few times and I know people who were. Y was a hardcore Weezer stan. Like, they were so far beyond the others in the group, to a really insane degree. And they weren’t self aware. They took any mockery or critique of Weezer as a personal attack which, uh. Buddy. You’re in the wrong group if that’s the case. Stick with the Fan Club.
Their main thing was they were obsessed with Weezer’s guitarist, Brian, to a really uncomfortable degree. They would make posts about wanting to fuck him. Their most explicit stuff was on Instagram where they had a smaller following but they would also post creepy stuff on the page as well, it wasn't any secret that they badly wanted to sleep with him. I once stumbled upon their Tumblr account where they posted some really out there fanfic that I wish I hadn’t seen. The only one that I read before I noped the fuck out was about Rivers Cuomo fucking a pumpkin. I also recall a post on there lamenting how they hurt themselves by accidentally poking their cervix really hard while masturbating to Brian. The thing is, even with the pumpkin thing I can’t tell if they were entirely serious, they were kind of just Like That.
Being a Brian stan and also not being able to take any criticism towards him is unfortunate, because he is a little sketch! He’s a Woody Allen apologist, he is known to be a bit of an asshole and has on occasion been really abrasive to fans, he had this weird Instagram account where he would take photos of the cuffs of people’s jeans and make fun of them, and there’s also an alleged incident where he made out with a 17 year old fan [IMPORTANT NOTE SO I DON’T CATCH A CASE (more on this later) this is an ALLEGED incident, and even in this persons allegation they specify that Brian was under the impression that the girl was 21 because the girl and her friend lied about their age so they could drink with him]. So Brian is the subject of mockery and criticism quite a lot, which Y did not like and would attack people for talking about him with anything less than fawning praise. One member posted about her experience with Brian where he snapped at her and insulted her, and Y alternated between attacking her character and saying that we were in no position to judge Brian because we didn’t know what he was going through.
So everyone was pretty relieved when the mods finally banned Y from the group. Their blowup which was the last straw for the admins has been deleted, but I do recall them saying Rivers Cuomo has had 14 and 16 year old girlfriends in the past so how dare we criticise Brian yadayadayada. Thing is, no one else had heard anything about that and Y didn't elaborate or provide any evidence. So they straight up accused another member of the band of being a pedophile because they were mad about people making fun of their fave. As well as attacking anyone who made shitposts about the Weezer guitarist in the Weezer shitposting group, they were also in the Instagram community harassing younger Weezer fans to the point where they didn’t even want to listen to Weezer anymore. At the time Y was around 18 and the people they were harassing were like, 14-16 years old. They eventually left Instagram as well after people finally had enough it and told them to stop bullying kids. They had a meltdown and insisted that, actually, they were the one being bullied, all while still attacking these kids and calling them names.
There was another BNF in the group who was really active and pretty well loved, but the thing is I have no idea what happened to him. No one really talks about him either, but I’m assuming its not good because the last time someone asked what happened to him they were told, “x is no longer part of this community because he said some weird, bad shit to people in here and when he was confronted about it, he deleted everyone and disappeared.” Oof
Kiss Me in Seattle
This isn’t really that big of a drama, its just think pretty funny. Earlier this year someone in Weezer Shitposting started a meme that Weezer’s next single would be called Kiss Me in Seattle. They made a mock up of a single cover and everything, it confused a lot of people and caught on enough that Karl, fifth member of Weezer, had to come out and make a statement clarifying that it was made up. And now, the grand finale…
Edit: someone in the comments pointed out that the Kiss Me in Seattle meme originated on the All Things Weezer forum, not the Facebook group.
Weezer Shitposting: the Trial of the Century
When this incident happened, I remember thinking that this was the best time in history to be a Weezer fan. They had a song on the charts, the Weezer SNL skit had just happened, I loved their newest single (spoiler alert: when the rest of the album came out it was dogshit terrible), and the Weezer Shitposting group was threatened with a lawsuit from Brian Bell’s lawyer.
As established earlier, Brian is a little sketch and it’s a shitposting group, so people will allude to some of the more questionable things he’s ALLEGED to have done to make fun of him. All fun and games until in December 2018 a profile makes a post in the group. The post reads, “I guess some people have nothing better to do than speculate about someone else’s private life because that person is famous, but the constitution does not protect some forms of speech and this type of defamation is not taken lightly.”
#weezershitpostingisgoingtojailparty
It’s a shitposting group, so surely it must have been some Kiss Me in Seattle type trolling, right? But no one knew this dude. No one had talked to him, he had never made any posts before. He had a legitimate profile as well dating back years. It said that he went to University in North Dakota and there is indeed an attorney with his name registered on the website for the North Dakota District Court. This wasn’t a one and done thing either. Later he commented on a meme where someone outright called Brian a pedophile saying, ‘The judge will not be laughing.’ While no one was worried that anyone in the group had done anything that could result in a lawsuit, the profile was credible enough that it could have belonged to a real attorney.
It was never outright confirmed whether or not this was legit. I think the BNF who mysteriously disappeared claimed that he was behind the account, but even if I didn't know he was sketch I don't think I'd be able to believe him given his general demeanour. Plus, the profile was plausible enough and there is actually a real lawyer with his name. Nothing has ever materialised, but it inspired many a great meme.
Tldr; God bless Weezer Shitposting.

2020.04.21 11:56 IGotSatan Nu Metal Denialism

“Denial – Seems it had to come” – Sevendust
Nu metal denialism is a phenomenon in which an attempt is made to discount a legitimate nu metal band as a participant in the era, in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
Even the most fundamental bands have been subjected to nu metal denialism, including Korn, Deftones, System of a Down, Linkin Park, Incubus, Mudvayne, Slipknot and Disturbed.
The primary driving force of nu metal denialism is the social stigma which is sometimes attached to nu metal or individual bands. Reasons for this stigma are:
1. The perception that nu metal acts such as Limp Bizkit and Crazy Town are dated or “cheesy”
2. Music snobbery pertaining to the simplistic guitar riffs and lyrics used in nu metal – “It’s not REAL metal”
3. Prejudice and stereotyping aimed at nu metal fans e.g. “they’re frat boys” or “they’re angry white middle class kids”
4. The personality of a nu metal musician is widely criticised e.g. Fred Durst, and irrationally attributed to the whole genre of music
5. The Woodstock 1999 riots blamed on nu metal bands rather than the actual perpetrators
6. The bandwagon mentality of hating what is successful, in order to appear edgy
Due to the cognitive dissonance and mental gymnastics involved in nu metal denialism, a denier may become aggressive or insulting when failing to produce a coherent argument for why a band is not nu metal. This is exacerbated by the social stigma associated with nu metal / an individual band.
There are four types of nu metal denialism:
Type 1: Exception – A fan of a band attempts to deny their obvious nu metal characteristics
Cognition A: “I like System Of A Down”
Cognition B: “I don’t like nu metal”
Conclusion: “Therefore, System Of A Down aren’t nu metal”
Type 2: Exclusion – A fan of nu metal wants to distance themself from a certain nu metal band that they don’t like
Cognition A: “I like nu metal”
Cognition B: “I don’t like Crazy Town
Conclusion: “Therefore, Crazy Town aren’t nu metal
Type 3: Self-Exception – A musician attempts to distance themself from the nu metal movement. This can put them in the awkward position of having to pretend that they didn’t use obvious nu metal conventions in their music including rapping, or trying to circumvent these facts with excuses (see Corey Taylor).
David Draiman (Disturbed): “The nu-metal thing I never got because we never rap, we've never had a turntable. All of the elements that are parts of being a nu metal band were never part of what we did.” – Songs likes Droppin’ Plates, Fear and Down With The Sickness contain blatant rapping. Not every nu metal band has a DJ, but Disturbed even used synth samples and drum programming in their songs.
Brandon Boyd (Incubus): “We were being embraced by some of the nu-metal champions of the time, and opening for them, and it always made me cringe.” – If that’s really how he felt, then it’s not clear why he chose to integrate core nu metal characteristics into his music including rapping and DJ scratching.
Chester Bennington (Linkin Park): “we've really moved away from anything that sounds like nu-metal. I know that we kind of helped create, I guess, the sound of that genre, but I hate that genre. I'm not going to speak for everyone, but I can personally tell you that I am not a big fan of almost everybody in that category. There are a few bands that I don't really believe belong in there, and we're one of those bands." – The argument here is that because Linkin Park drastically changed their style after Meteora it means that they shouldn’t be considered a nu metal band. Obviously we’re only interested in recognising their two nu metal albums as being nu metal, not the later releases.
Corey Taylor (Slipknot): “People have always tried to push us into the nu-metal thing… I mean, we've had some blatant hip-hop, not even the fucking nu-metal side, but blatant hip-hop." – What is he on about? Which Slipknot songs are hip-hop without being nu metal? His statement ironically is a better description of Limp Bizkit and Crazy Town than of Slipknot.
Jonathan Davis: “Oh man, that scene was full of misogynistic, opportunistic dickhead jocks. The sort of people who’d be bullying me at school if they weren’t supporting my band at shows. I’m about the art. We got lumped in with that stuff kinda because of the way we dressed. We were kinda hip-hop, but there was nothing really hip-hop about Korn other than the bass lines to an extent. I didn’t rap!” – He has a point, I’ve seen Korn live and the crowd was full of violent assholes. Trying to pretend he didn’t rap though, what’s with that? He even did a rap battle with Fred Durst.
Type 4: Lack of Contextual Awareness
Cognition A: Korn are nu metal
Cognition B: Puddle of Mudd don’t sound the same as Korn
Conclusion: Puddle of Mudd aren’t nu metal
This is where the cultural context of a band or album is not evaluated prior to making a categorisation. This tends to be an honest mistake- For example, it may be the perspective of a newcomer to the genre who was born after the nu era. Confusion arises over bands who were recognised as having the spirit or aesthetic of nu metal by contemporary music critics, but did not use strict musical conventions associated with nu metal (e.g. rapping, DJ scratching, heavy down-tuning). Evidently, “nu metal” ended up as an umbrella term (perhaps even a marketing term) for a new wave of rock music in the new millennium.
To mitigate confusion, the numetal community has coined the term “nu adjacent” for such bands. An alternative resolution is to sub-divide the nu metal spectrum into categories which specify the dominant sound of a nu band. An example of such a categorisation is “Nu Grunge”.
Conclusion
Elitist derision of the nu metal movement has led to both music fans and musicians trying to distance themselves from the genre, or bands within the genre. Despite this, nu metal musicians who are brave enough to identify with the genre have a lot to be proud of:
  1. Legitimising and raising awareness of male mental health problems including anxiety disorders (Korn, Coal Chamber, Staind, Linkin Park)
  2. Saving lives through music, and having an invaluable impact on the well-being of others
  3. Creating a community for misfits and outcasts
  4. Dominating vapid pop culture and providing an accessible alternative
"I feel proud that I was part of the scene. I have no room for the fucking purists, so I don't give a shit. I know that we all did something special and we helped save L.A." – Dez Fafara (Coal Chamber)

2020.03.08 15:25 big-nazza Every track peggy has teased since AMHAC

EDIT: This now Includes Tracks dating back to May 2019
I thought this could be useful in the future
I just spent a good 10 mins tryna make out the tracks from the comp he showed us a glimpse of on the plane shot and this is what I could come up with (there’s still a lot of holes here, a lot of it was super hard to read)
“JPEG 2020 1.1-1 rough” with either Flume or Freaky but it looks more like Flume
“Nancy pelosi type demo rough”
“New recording 420_01”
“n***a where im at”
“pretentious 2 00”
“Ridge Race scenario”
“semi heart”
“Sense Offenderz 4”
“time to detox 4 rough”
“turok getting there” we’ve possibly heard this in HTBAR1
“walk out and talk to yourself 333”
“will smith test”
Out of these I’m convinced turok will release at some point
Oh and there were the BALD! demo tracks which were:
“baldybeamerboy demo rough”
“BALD! Mix 67”
And these are the other ones I can recall from the past from Instagram stories etc
“reputations”
“riri”
“Rock n roll N***ER 8”
“role models kill me now_01” we’ve heard this from HTBAR
“salata 4”
“Selfishness 320”
“smashing pumpkinz ruff”
“sometimes img88k” we’ve heard this on HTBAR
“targeting hate groups for dirotos 2 new”
“they will be the death of em pt. 2”
“thot tactics intro” we’ve very likely heard (unless it was a cut intro)
“THOT TACTICS ROUGH”
“throwaway beat rough”
“twerk ghost (dots freestyle ) demo ft...” I assume the feature is Buzzy Lee & Abdu Ali
“ive thought about it awhile” it cut off so idk the rest of the title
“The Lord Pt.1 eq” we’ve heard part of pt 2
“Make them come after me 2 edit”
“making loveuntitled 3”
“Male Period” w Vegyn
“master splitner demo”
“MERRY GOING”
“new drugz even better rough”
“No service bb 2” we’ve heard this on HTBAR
“NOFritz2”
“Out here slinging new version 2 possi...” it cut off at possi but I assume it says possibly something
“PAPI i missed u 45”
“POSTMATES 8”
“Power Stone 2.5” notable bc power stone was a track off Dreamcast summer songs, the first project Peggy ever made
“Prophet off me bb full”
“potato_2 89bpm 1”
“turok” w freaky
“fed flinstone (instrumental)” from HTBAR
“covered in money”
“bodyguard (demo)”
“i was supposed to earn her back”
“rando2”
“angel demon mix 3” w Tommy Genesis
“BFT BB” and “BFT 1”
“australia almost killed me”
“repuatations real”
“convienice 22 rough”
“fred durst pack” w Buzzy Lee
“Selfishness 320”
“Cody Rhoades 2”
“how long demo”
“my hero! demo” as heard from HTBAR, but there is cover art for this peggy has shown on insta so this is pretty likely to release sometime
Another track I see releasing soon is “gang gang” which Peggy has shown parts of on both HTBAR and his insta story and has a feature
A track I think is being referred to as “Optimus Prime” from HTBAR which I think is the same track as “turok”
The Mariah test that i believe is being called “always be my baby”
I’ll also probably go back to this post and update it each time peggy teases something new if I can, I’m just putting this up for referencing sake
Also drop anything in the comments I’ve missed
AND IF YOU’RE READING THIS GUY THAT LINKED ME TO THAT FOLDER OF INSTA STORIES THEN GOT DELETED TYSM

2020.01.31 17:46 GhengisGhandi Is this a realistic plan for a channel startup?

For the past two years I've been writing and working on scripts for an idea I've had for a channel. I've finally decided to start acting on it and finally acquired all the equipment and people I believe I'll need to achieve what I have in my head.
The channel will be a music and music gear related comedy channel with three or four distinct series.
The first series, and what I imagine will be the flagship, will be called "Or Best Offer". It will revolve around myself and my female co-host looking for cheap, ratty, or aesthetically challenged music equipment on Craigslist, FB Marketplace, eBay, etc. We will do our best to make the equipment at least playable. It will then be demo'd and recorded to the best of our ability (I'm a sound engineer as my current job and have professionally recorded before). The gear will either surprise us by being okay or will sound awful, hopefully to a comedic effect.
The gear will undergo a 'durability' test which will be us destroying the equipment in spectacular ways. How much beer can the average acoustic guitar hold and can you drink out of it while playing? Can a distortion pedal be turned on and off by running it over with a truck and survive? How do arrows affect the diaphragm tonality of a combo guitar amp speaker?
Second series will be reviewing the history of different famous bands and musicians using color printout pictures glued to popsicle sticks. The whole series will be what amounts to a really crappy looking, but well written, puppet show. We'll go over strange and funny moments in the bands history as well as throwing in some obviously made up facts about them as well. "A little known fact is that Kid Rock spent his gap year with the Mujahedeen." "Ever had a diss track about you so fire you had to change genres?" (In regards to Machine Gun Kelly vs. Eminem) "Neil Pert didnt actually have a penis. In its place was a third arm. If you look at old live footage close enough, you can see it."
Third series will be a fairly standard interview series with local to my area musicians, engineers, and showrunners. I know this series won't have as wide appeal. Telling stories of horrible gigs, funny moments, nightmare bandmates, etc. We want to throw some unconventional questions in there as well such as: "What exactly makes you the next Nickelback?" "We heard you're great friends with Fred Durst. What terrible life decisions lead you to this point?"
The team we have is myself, a female singer I brought in from my local music scene to co-host, a videography student to film, and a video editor who is co-writing scripts with me.
Our current goal is to produce five episodes of each series before an arbitrary launch date of early June. Our main series being uploaded every two weeks and the other series alternating uploads every week. During the release schedule we'll begin on new episodes.
We are currently in the middle of filming our on location shoots and editing our first episode of "Or Best Offer".
I have a few questions since none of us have attempted anything like this before.
The weather is not ideal this time of year for outdoor shooting; cloudy days, lots of snow. Is it worth waiting for Spring to roll around before shooting outdoor scenes or will an audience probably not care too much about it as long as the point of the scene is conveyed with clarity and the audio quality remains good?
Is the subject matter too niche to garner decent success and could it be broadened without risk of casting too wide of a net?
Are we biting off a lot more than we can chew at this point with our production scheduling? I want the tone of the videos to remain somewhat amateur-ish but overall quality to be good.
As long as we have the locations express permission to film in their place of business or property does that cover our legal risks?
We have another idea for a series that would be a 'react' format. The series would be us reacting to more extreme styles of music or 'bad' music and the challenge would be to say only nice or good things about the music. I know this can't be monetized, but is it something we should consider creating a whole separate channel for due to the risk of copyright?
Should we begin promotion for the channel before we upload anything or will that not make a difference or be detrimental to the possible success of the the channel?
I only wrote summaries of the series mentioned and can elaborate more if needed. Thank you for your time.

2020.01.15 06:34 poochyabootch Poochyabooch #13 - The Fanatic (2019)

Date Started: 1/1/2020
Date Watched: 1/14/2020
Rotten Tomatoes: 17% 🚫
IMDb: 5/10
Letterboxd - 1.6/5
Synopsis:
A rabid film fan stalks his favorite action hero and destroys the star's life.
Review:
What happened to John Travolta? Somehow this is absolutely worse than Gotti was. This is a flaming pile of TRASH. Fred Durst put a scene in the movie where the celebrity and his son listen to Limp Bizkit and he talks about how great it is. One of Travolta’s first lines is “Can’t talk too long, gotta poo.”
Rating:
3/100

2019.09.08 08:17 woapburger How do you feel about autistics being portrayed as muderous stalkers in John Travolta's The Fanatic (2019)?

So a new horror movie has just come out, "The Fanatic", with an autistic character as the main villain, portrayed by John Travolta. John Travolta is an obsessed fan that stalks and tries to kidnap his acting idol, mudering anyone who gets in his way. The character is explicitly made out to be autistic, and this is used to explain his motivation in the movie.
From Roger Ebert's review: https://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/the-fanatic-movie-review-2019
Trailer of the film here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=go6AW7sPW84
Fred Durst’s “The Fanatic” hates fans. It hates actors. It hates tourists, shop owners, and servants. It really, really hates autistic people. Believe it or not, “The Fanatic” was likely pitched as Rain Man” meets “Taxi Driver.” John Travolta channels decades of annoying fans into his portrayal of a man named Moose, someone the actor has said is on the spectrum, which is the only way to explain even a fraction of some of his more extreme actions here. Moose is aggressive and clearly troubled.
Moose is a loyal horror fan, someone who quotes his favorites (which are as basic as “Night of the Living Dead”) and hunts for memorabilia. He’s not one of those autograph hunters who seeks to resell; he builds shrines in his house to the actors he loves. One such actor is Hunter Dunbar (Devon Sawa). When Moose discovers where his idol lives, he makes a series of bad choices that lead to extreme violence.
Durst and Travolta use Moose’s autism like a plot device, making him a somewhat lovable outsider when it feeds their needs and a borderline sociopath when they so choose.
There’s nothing wrong with making a film about troubled people, but there needs to be a reason to watch it beyond pointing and laughing. “The Fanatic” is a bully, a movie that knocks around the very people who made its creator millions and even the industry that pushed it into existence. This film has no entertainment value to supplement for the lack of humanity at its center.
I've watched the movie and I found John Travolta's performance chilling. His performance ranks up there Hannibal Lecter (by the way, Anthony Hopkins has Asperger's in real life), and his autistic character potentially could join the list of iconic boogeyman that include creations such as: Jason from the Halloween series, and Ghostface from Scream.
So autistics of reddit: how do you feel about being an acceptable target in the media? How do you feel about being portrayed as murderous stalkers and mass shooters in the media?
How do you feel about being rejected in real-life and living a life without hope? I've had bosses and female friends in the past that have said they would never employ or date anyone with autism, no matter how high-functioning. Just think: huge swathes of the population are refusing to get vaccinated, they would rather have their children die of measles than have even a chance of getting autism). Living with autism is the worst fate in the world.

2019.09.08 08:07 woapburger How do you feel about aspies being portrayed as muderous stalkers in John Travolta's The Fanatic (2019)?

So a new horror movie has just come out, "The Fanatic", with an autistic character as the main villain, portrayed by John Travolta. John Travolta is an obsessed fan that stalks and tries to kidnap his acting idol, mudering anyone who gets in his way. The character is explicitly made out to be autistic, and this is used to explain his motivation in the movie.
From Roger Ebert's review: https://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/the-fanatic-movie-review-2019
Trailer of the film here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=go6AW7sPW84
Fred Durst’s “The Fanatic” hates fans. It hates actors. It hates tourists, shop owners, and servants. It really, really hates autistic people. Believe it or not, “The Fanatic” was likely pitched as Rain Man” meets “Taxi Driver.” John Travolta channels decades of annoying fans into his portrayal of a man named Moose, someone the actor has said is on the spectrum, which is the only way to explain even a fraction of some of his more extreme actions here. Moose is aggressive and clearly troubled.
Moose is a loyal horror fan, someone who quotes his favorites (which are as basic as “Night of the Living Dead”) and hunts for memorabilia.

2019.06.16 06:17 slaystationone free time from my partner turns into one of the best nights

I love my primary partner. A lot. So much so that I get too comfortable hanging out with him to make plans with anyone else. You cant blame me; who wouldn't want to hang out with their best friend? It's not that I don't make an effort to hang out with my friends in different circles. I just get so cozy with him.
Yesterday, he (M) left the city for the weekend, which motivated me to make plans to go to karaoke with my drawing club. On Wednesday, I put something together for Friday (yesterday) on Facebook, and here's the kicker: the one guy (C) in our circle that I've had a crush on for months was interested. I knew him only from Facebook and added him because we had mutual art scene friends. His artistic talent blew me away—his illustrations are insane, like, he's who I wanna be when I grow up—but lately I've found him way cute and charming—he looks like a "dorky but attractive art kid" character from a John Hughes movie.
!!! cute fun friend-hangout-turns-into-a-kinda-date details !!!
So I show up to the bar way too early for karaoke—or actually "on time" so I can get some drinks in my system and call first dibs sooner—and my friend J shows up and we talk for a bit. C shows up and joins our conversation. This goes on til J starts doing his own thing and it's just C and I talking. We're vibing, more people show up to the bar, the karaoke host is setting up, and the song books spread across the bar. I'm filling out my song request slips and bravely chose "Rollin'" by Limp Bizkit and I was the first to put a song in. We keep talking until the host calls me up and I kick the night off perfectly channeling Fred Durst. I don't know if I looked more or less attractive to C, but we continue to vibe for the rest of the night, talking about gender and politics and movies and our luck on dating sites and my experience with nonmonogamy. I forgot I was here because of drawing club. He mentions that he has to go soon but has to hit the minimum on his tab, to which I replied "you can do that by getting me a drink :)" so we get another and we just keep vibing so well. C tells me he wants to kiss me and I am speechless. This is the guy I've been crushing on forever and this is the first time we met in person and he's telling me he's found me cute and stuff for a while and I catch myself saying aloud "holup, you like like me?" We're blushing and stuff.
Everything in this moment feels perfect. I still couldn't believe this is happening. He leans in to kiss me and as soon as our lips touch, I get called up to sing "You Only Live Once" by The Strokes. I am BEAMING. This is one of the songs on a playlist I made for M and one of my favorite songs ever. I felt like I was indirectly serenading C all while these happy memories of M and I flashed before my eyes. In that moment, my heart was so full: I have a partner who loves me very much, low-maintenance lovers, and now I'm at the bar with a new hopefully-lover. I finish singing and go back to C. He tells me that he thinks that if he kisses me again, he won't ever leave and I'm like "I dunno, do you wanna find out?" and he leans over to kiss my cheek. I kiss his cheek back, we pause—I can feel him grin a little—and we make out. He's such a good kisser. Even though I frown upon making out right at the bar, I was enveloped in this saccharine moment where I'm kissing him and envisioning us cooking dinner together, him and M meeting, the three of us getting brunch together, and just telling the universe that my dreams of having a healthy polycule will happen. He's about to see himself out, but before he goes, we make plans to go out this Tuesday night. I haven't stopped replaying last night!
I'm really excited to tell M, too. M already knows about C since I told him I've been crushing on him but couldn't do anything because we were strangers on Facebook instead of strangers on okC or Tinder. I've been going through a rut finding someone(s) to build an emotional bond with—the couple I've been talking to seems to be losing interest and someone I was head over heels for couldn't even have FWBs because of life stuff. M tends to experience compersion much more than I do; he was very happy for me when I told him how much fun I had on my first date with the latter. M loves seeing me happy. I can't wait to tell M "it worked out!!!" and see his reaction. I'm so grateful to have such a loving and supportive partner and that last night happened.

tl;dr: my partner's gone for the weekend so I used my time alone to do karaoke with drawing club friends. One of them was a guy I've never met before but crushed on for a while. We clicked so well and we're going out again this Tuesday.

[Record Parenting] Various - Family Values Tour '98
Grab your JNCOs, wallet chain, spiky hair gel, ball necklace, and that ditch-weed spliff you rolled out of bible paper, cuz it’s time to get real aggro, brah…
https://preview.redd.it/9rk7sr9jwei21.jpg?width=3012&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=30b57e7186ed254cc01606d271406b6616ece8b4
Various Artists - Family Values Tour ‘98
Background: Virginia may be for lovers, but Nu Metal is for dirtbags. And I don’t just mean the teenage dirtbags romanticized by Wheatus; I mean full-on, forty-five-year-old, two-failed marriages, three estranged kids, no credit, “hey babes, check out my Corvette,” semi-functional alcoholic dirtbag. Really, what fucking adults went to Korn shows in the late 90s? I have to imagine it’s the same pack of laureates you’d find today scoping out jailbait at a Kid Rock show and telling people about the boat they want to buy.
But as an anonymous, white, Midwestern, suburban, middle-school aged cis-male, I aspired to be a dirtbag. Luckily, my SES was too high to become a Juggalo, so I gravitated toward the rap-rock abortion that is Nu Metal. During my junior high years, there was no one fucking cooler than Fred Durst, no one with more emotional depth than Jonathan Davis, and nobody more fucking brutal than those dudes from Mudvayne. Looking back, the shit only holds up as nostalgia. I think the only great album to emerge from the genre is the Deftones’ White Pony, but that’s because I pretend System of a Down and Rage, perhaps by virtue of their political commitments, weren’t Nu Metal. But, then again, all of LA seems to still have love for SOAD; and as we know, LA— full of dirtbags.
And while I don’t remember where I was the day the Family Values Tour ’98 came to town, I do remember when my grandmother bought me the CD (which came out March 30th, 1999) from a CD store housed in a massive suburban mall. Totally fucking vaporwave. For a while, this thing was the fucking ur-text, a holy relic of recent history that just barely predated the dropping of my balls. Korn, Rammstein, Ice Cube, Limp Bizkit, and Orgy, all on one bill, and as a bonus, S.C.I.E.N.C.E.-era Incubus, who replaced Ice Cube the last five-dates on tour and contribute the first track to the collection. I guess even Rob Zombie was originally involved, but had to bail because his stage show was too expensive. As we all know, Zombie comes to party, or he doesn’t come at all.
They’d do another live record for the ’99 tour with Primus, Filter, Staind, and a few others; maybe you remember this classic. Then again in 2001 with STP, 2006 with Stone Sour, 2007 with Evanescence, and a one-off in Colorado in 2013, always with Korn headlining. Having access to cheap tickets, I went once just to see Korn, either in 2006 or 2007 at Sandstone Ampitheater (or whatever it’s called now) outside Kansas City. The whole thing was pretty trashy, but anything less would have been disappointing.
The live album itself is balls deep. You’ve got these great interlude tracks from some DJ named C-Minus, scratching just the right amount for a Family Values crowd, weaving a sonic web around killer performances from all the artists involved. The record was only pressed in 1999, but I managed to get a mint copy for $16.99 shipped on Discogs about five years ago. On “translucent yellow” vinyl and including the legendary group photo, the sound quality is way better than you’d expect for a live album.
The Session: As Ice Cube says, “today was a good day.” I took him around 8am and we went to go find something aggressive and wildly age inappropriate. At first I was thinking grindcore, but decided to save that for one day mom leaves the house and chose Family Values instead. We danced around for Incubus’s “New Skin,” which may still be their best song. I know they’ve had a pretty steady commercial career since, but it’s tough to compete with the wild shit that came out of Brandon Boyd when he still had dreadlocks.
Then Orgy came on. Fuck yes— I would go see Orgy live; if they’re playing all of Candyass, I might even cross state lines. The energy totally comes across for all three tracks, ending with their career-defining cover of “Blue Monday.” During this time, we tried a little mat time, where you lay the little due out on a (yes, you called it) mat and let him just kick and punch as if he really were in the pit.
Side B kicks off with Limp Bizkit’s set. Say what you want about Fred Duuuuuurrrrrrrr-st, but Wes Borland fucking rules. They play “Cambodia,” this uncharacteristically dissonant track fro them which got renamed as something else for a studio album, then followed it up with two killer covers— first George Michael’s “Faith” (“I guess it would be nice…”), then House of Pain’s “Jump Around.” DJ Lethal was in the band, after all, and I know you like break-dancing baby, so GET UP! GET UP!
Done with mat time, I put the dude in his magic, levitating chair. He chills for a bit through the first Ice Cube track, “Check Yo Self,” and onto Side C with “Natural Born Killaz.” He perks up when Ice Cube starts leading the crowd chanting “Fuck the Police” and stays with me through Rammstein’s singular contribution, “Du Hast.” The entire last side is all Korn, starting with the bizarrely-named “Shot Liver Medley,” where Jonathan Davis recites nursery rhymes and then iconoclastically asserts, “Fuck all this bullshit!” as if he’s oppressed by the very idea of childhood. Fucking Bakersfield, man. After that rant, the band drives it home with “Freak on a Leash,” “Twist/Chi” (my favorite), and “Got the Life.”
Will there ever be a Nu Metal Renaissance? Not a year ago I saw a grown man in Denver wearing a Korn shirt and walking with his kids. Disheartening, but what better soundtrack could there be for our grand idiocracy than Papa Roach and Linkin Park?
Let me know what Nu Metal revival bands I should never check out (does Bring Me The Horizon count?), whether you think Mushroomhead is underrated, or who we can extort to press Candyass, gatefold, on 45 rpm “digital apocalypse” black and red vinyl. Record Parenting also apologizes for the recent security breach that resulted in loss of client data. We’re working hard to remedy the problem, but we strongly recommend changing your Discogs password and backing up your wantlist.
I saw Papa Roach open up for 311 once; I don’t regret it,

  • The situation with AJPW pretty much exploded this week, with Misawa announcing the formation of his new promotion and Nippon TV officially cancelling AJPW's TV show in the wake of the company splitting up. Misawa held a press conference and spoke about why he split from left, saying he was unable to modernize AJPW because Motoko Baba wouldn't allow him to make the changes he felt needed to be made for the company and compared it to when Giant Baba left JWA in 1972 to form his own company. The issues were both creative and financial, with Mrs. Baba resisting making any of the changes Misawa wanted. He also wanted to increase the wrestler's pay and give them medical benefits, which she also refused to do. Even though the company was struggling somewhat last year, they were still profitable, but Misawa felt the money wasn't being reinvested in the company properly. As for his new promotion, Misawa didn't reveal the name but it's believed the company will be called NOAH and will debut in August, with its first major tour scheduled for October. As expected, almost the entire AJPW roster as well as nearly all of the office employees sided with Misawa and left with him. Occasional AJPW star (and Japanese senator) Hiroshi Hase wasn't at the press conference but word is he is siding with Misawa as well. In the meantime, Kenta Kobashi is taking these next couple of months off to get long-needed knee surgery and hopes to be back in time for NOAH's debut (here's the press conference, just in case some of you understand Japanese).
WATCH: Misawa press conference announcing AJPW split
  • Only Toshiaka Kawada, Masa Fuchi, one of the referees, and 2 members of the board of directors chose to stay with Mrs. Baba in AJPW. And really, it's believed that Kawada only stayed because NJPW reached out to him and he realizes he only has a limited amount of time left in his career and wants to work a few big money cross-promotional matches against NJPW stars rather than become a midcard guy in NOAH. There's a lot of money in Kawada defending the AJPW Triple Crown title in Tokyo Dome matches against NJPW guys like Muto, Chono, and Hashimoto and in fact, those matches are already being discussed. In return, NJPW may step in and help keep AJPW afloat during these trying times. Plus, Kawada and Misawa have never really gotten along, which is another reason he chose to stay with AJPW.
  • Motoko Baba held her own press conference announcing that several foreign stars (Stan Hansen Steve Williams, Johnny Ace, Too Cold Scorpio, and others) will be on the next tour so it seems the foreigners are sticking with her. Vader is out of action injured but it's believed he will stay with AJPW as well (nope). Most of the foreigners are taking a "wait and see" stance since they have no real dog in this fight and haven't been around or privy to all the backstage drama and their loyalties have always been to Giant Baba so for now, they're choosing to stand by his wife's side. But without a TV deal, it's unknown how long AJPW can afford to pay all these big salaries that the foreigners get. And if the money starts to fall, you can bet all the foreign stars will run to Misawa quick. Mrs. Baba claimed in her press conference that Misawa had not worked hard as company president over the last year and that he had been planning to leave for a long time (the last part is true, more on that in a moment). She asked for all the wrestlers who left to come back to at least work the upcoming July tour but so far, Misawa hasn't responded to that proposal and really, it's just an attempt by Baba to save face with AJPW fans. But it does present a problem for the company because advertising for the July shows is already out all over Japan, with Misawa's face all over the posters and tickets were already being sold. Kawada has pretty much said that anyone who wants a refund will be able to get one. AJPW is also reaching out to NJPW and Michinoku Pro wrestlers to try to fill up the roster for some shows. As of press time, they have 11 confirmed wrestlers working the July tour and are hoping to get at least 16.
  • As mentioned, Nippon TV announced that it was cancelling AJPW after airing it for 28 years. It's actually been known for almost a year that if Misawa left, NTV would go with him. Misawa wanted to leave Motoko Baba a year ago and he got word even back then that most of the roster and NTV would go with him. But it was so soon after Giant Baba's death that it wouldn't have looked good publicly. NTV wanted to wait, so as not to appear disrespectful to Baba's legacy, which is largely why Misawa stuck with AJPW for as long as he did. But it's been over a year since Baba's death and enough time has apparently passed now. Misawa's new promotion will take over AJPW's weekly time slot when they debut. Once again, this is very similar to what happened in 1972. NTV was the station that aired JWA and when Baba split off to form All Japan, NTV went with him, just like they are following Misawa now (it's an absolute miracle that AJPW survived and still somehow continues to exist to this day, although they never truly recovered from all of this).
  • The USA Network vs. WWF trial is just about all wrapped up but there was still no verdict at press time. The judge ordered the 2 sides to try to negotiate a settlement because one side probably wouldn't like his decision. Most news reports seem to suggest WWF is likely going to win this one. If you recall, USA is suing because they had a right-of-first-refusal clause in their contract with WWF stating they could match any offer for Raw, LiveWire, Superstars, and Heat. So Viacom then swooped in and offered WWF a huge amount of money for those shows, plus another $3.5 million for additional TV specials, another million or so for scripted TV show development, an $8 million budget to promote the move to TNN, some book deals, and a bunch of other shit. USA felt that they shouldn't have to match Viacom's offer on that extra stuff, they only want the original 4 shows and shouldn't have to bid against Viacom for anything other than that. Anyway, in a side note, Dave offhandedly mentions that WWF and Viacom have discussed airing regular special events on CBS (pretty sure that never happened). During the trial, Vince McMahon testified that the USA Network did virtually nothing for WWF, complained that they underpaid for WWF programming, and admitted being upset about USA pre-empting the show every year for the U.S. Open and the Westminster Dog Show (you and me both Vince), claiming it was stupid because nobody watches those shows. Dave points out that, up until the last few years, the dog show routinely did bigger ratings than Raw and was much more valuable to advertisers, which is why USA always bumped Raw for it. The US Open never beat Raw in the ratings, but it was also more valuable to advertisers and USA made more money from it, so same thing. McMahon also said that USA Network execs laughed at him because he asked to buy an ownership stake in the Sci-Fi Channel. In a related note, it came out during the trial that USA had proposed starting a new network called the Man Cable Channel that would have heavily featured WWF and XFL.
  • Vince Russo reportedly quit WCW this week, although others dispute that. Russo hasn't returned anyone's calls but he has a meeting later this week with Brad Seigel to discuss his future. Reportedly it was over a disagreement with Eric Bischoff who wanted to bring Kimberly, Lex Luger, and Elizabeth back. All 3 reportedly quit recently because they didn't want to go along with his scripts and Russo doesn't want to bring them back. Kimberly and Elizabeth both walked out for a variety of reasons but mostly because they aren't trained wrestlers and don't want to take bumps (more on Kimberly's situation in a bit). Dave notes that neither woman was very popular backstage. Elizabeth was reportedly making $300,000 a year which, needless to say, is ridiculously overpaid for someone who mostly just stands in the corner and rarely even talks. And Kimberly wasn't well liked because she'd gained a reputation of having a big head with people saying she was turning into the next Sable. But she looks good and is a better actor than most of the people cutting promos and thus she was given a lot of TV time. And in the case of Luger, he was complaining about how he was being used, eventually refusing to do an angle Russo wrote for him. Dave argues that Russo is in the right when it comes to Luger. If you're the guy in charge, you can't just have guys refusing to go along with the script and allow that to go unpunished. But WCW management felt otherwise because Luger has several years left on a very lucrative guaranteed contract and felt that as long as he's healthy, they have to find a way to use him to justify it. But the problem is, that basically neuters Russo's authority, which is a necessity when you're the booker. That being said, others have pointed out that Hogan and Nash routinely do the same thing and both have been a way bigger problem in the locker room than Luger. This all leads Dave on a rant about how Hogan and Nash try to give the appearance of putting people over while not actually doing them any favors, and specifically talks about the recent Hogan vs. Billy Kidman feud, where Kidman allegedly got the rub from working with Hogan (even getting a pinfall or two at times), but in reality he got treated like a jobber through the whole storyline and probably came out of it worse off than he was before he worked with Hogan. Anyway, Russo is also unhappy with the Turner standards & practices people editing a lot of this week's Thunder episode and all of this led to Russo reportedly quitting.
  • Publicly, WCW has stated that Russo is just taking a few days off due to a concussion but lots of sources in WCW have confirmed that he quit. Bischoff has been wanting to get away from all the crazy Russo angles and focus more on wrestling anyway. Most people feel the issues will get worked out and Russo will probably return. He's notoriously hot-headed but he just bought a home in Atlanta and has a wife and 3 kids and Vince McMahon ain't taking him back, so it's unlikely that he's going to walk away from an extremely lucrative contract and more likely, this is more of a power-play. Terry Taylor and Ed Ferrara wrote Nitro and Thunder this week and it was a better show, with no run-ins and actual focus being put on the matches, as opposed to Russo's formula of quick 90-second matches with run-ins on every one of them, sandwiched in between poorly-acted skits. It also saw Booker T drop the GI Bro gimmick and go back to Booker T, which was a relief to everyone in the company who hated what Russo was doing with Booker. The newly-heel Goldberg got a huge ovation, which once again had people second-guessing Russo's decision to turn the most popular money-making act in the company heel and a lot of people think it's only a matter of time before they're forced to turn him face again and pretend like the heel turn never happened (yup). Most people feel Russo is right in regards to Luger, but also feel his storming out and quitting over it was immature, but it's not the first time Russo has thrown a temper tantrum and pretended to quit. Since Russo wasn't at Nitro, it also led to them barely acknowledging the Ric Flair head-shaving angle, which is the hottest storyline WCW has going right now and Russo walking out basically stopped it in its tracks since he was such a big part of it.
  • A public funeral was held for Jumbo Tsuruta in Japan, drawing an estimated 5,000 people. Aside from Giant Baba and El Santo, it was the largest crowd to ever attend a pro wrestler's funeral. Despite the AJPW/NOAH split, basically everyone from both groups attended the service, along with several NJPW stars like Tatsumi Fujinami and Shinya Hashimoto.
  • The first ever AAA/CMLL joint show took place and, as you might expect, most of the news comes from behind the scenes. The show was pretty much ordered by Televisa which airs both promotions and forced them to do a show together. The show drew around 40,000 fans and was heavily pro-CMLL, with even the top AAA babyfaces being heavily booed. Both AAA head Antonio Pena and CMLL head Paco Alonso were there but Alonso refused to come to the ring with Pena at one point. Wrestlers were kept in separate dressing rooms with intermediaries passing messages between them to work out finishes and whatnot. There's a lot of heat between the wrestlers also, with CMLL feeling like AAA makes a mockery of Lucha Libre by doing hardcore matches and using celebrities and other American-style things while AAA wrestlers argue that CMLL stars are old and out of touch and stuck in the past. During some of the matches, CMLL stars in particular almost completely refused to sell for the AAA guys. At one point, a legit fight broke out between Cibernetico and Pierroth Jr. leading to a lot of wrestlers from both sides running out to the ring to break it up and doing some pushing and shoving of each other also. So not a good start to the working relationship between the two companies (yeah that was the last of that for awhile. Anyway, here's the full show. And yes, I'm also noticing a pattern of all the videos in today's post being in non-English languages).

  • MCI WorldCom announced that it's pulling all advertising from Smackdown in the wake of the PTC harassing them about it. PTC spokesman Steve Allen and board member C. DeLores Tucker spoke at an MCI WorldCom stockholders meeting recently and both went hard at MCI for continuing to advertise on Smackdown. The week after their speech, Smackdown was significantly toned down, to the point that PTC even admitted so on its website, but it wasn't enough to keep MCI from being scared away. The PTC claims more than 30 advertisers have pulled out of Smackdown due to their efforts, which is misleading because some (like Wrigleys) pulled out of all wrestling advertising long before the PTC started their campaign (that claim comes back to bite the PTC later in court. Turns out some of the advertisers the PTC claimed had stopped sponsoring WWF never had ads on WWF to begin with. They were lying to pad their list and that plays a big part in the later lawsuit). Dave thinks the WWF made a mistake when it comes to the PTC. When this all started last year, WWF defended themselves by making it personal with the PTC and attacking the group's leader L. Brent Bozell personally. In that time, Smackdown has actually toned down quite a bit overall, but because they went so hard after Bozell personally, he's holding a grudge long past the point where he probably would have let it go had WWF simply toned things down (like they ended up doing anyway) and not tried to get into a mud-slinging contest. But by turning things personal, the battle has continued and advertisers have continued pulling out and WWF stock has fallen as a result.
  • Bad sponsor news for WCW also. Some sponsor (it's unsure who...either Burger King or Toy Biz depending on different sources) pulled their ads from WCW which is said to be a $500,000 loss for the company. Which isn't great news considering they're already hemorrhaging money at record pace. It was due to concerns over content, because Russo has pretty much turned WCW into a trashier copy of WWF and the same sponsors who are nervous about WWF now feel the same about WCW.
  • Dave decides to take a look at who the real PPV draws are in wrestling. This is basically taking statistical data from Sept. 1995 through May of 2000 (basically the entirety of the Monday Night Wars) and crunching the numbers to see who moves the needle on PPV, which is where the big money is, to determine who the real draws are. It's based on the number of PPVs the wrestler headlined, the average buyrate, and other little things. It gives a lot of interesting info. Needless to say, the numbers for Austin and The Rock are off the charts. Rounding out the top 5 are Hogan, Triple H, and Mick Foley. Guys like Kane, Undertaker, and Vince McMahon are in the running too, but that can usually be attributed to the fact that the PPVs they headlined were against Rock or Austin. On the WCW side, Hulk Hogan was undoubtedly WCW's biggest draw during the earlier years. Surprisingly, Sting and Lex Luger both were stronger draws on PPV than Flair, Nash, or Hall. Goldberg's numbers are impressive but his main event run coincided with the beginning of WCW's downfall, so he's only 4th on the list. But when you consider the time frame and the people he headlined against, Goldberg's numbers are actually more impressive than anyone in WCW other than Hogan. And on and on. Man, this is actually a lot longer than a thought and full of interesting analysis. Austin was a bigger PPV draw than Hogan. Ric Flair is consistently one of WCW's top TV ratings draws but only an average draw on PPV. Scott Hall was average. Jeff Jarrett's a flop. Bret Hart was slightly more of a PPV draw than Shawn Michaels. DDP's numbers look good but are artificially inflated due to the 2 matches with Rodman and Karl Malone, which are celebrity flukes. If you subtract those 2 matches, DDP was a below average draw. Kevin Nash was average. Roddy Piper was way up there but that's mostly due to his WCW matches being against Hogan. Undertaker's numbers were inflated by working with Austin so much and if you take Austin matches out of the equation and recalculate the averages, Undertaker is actually a pretty bad PPV draw. Same for Vader and Sid. And on and on and on. Dave notes that, overall, The Rock is the most impressive PPV draw of modern times. There's a LOT more here if you're interested in these sort of stats but this already feels like the longest Observer Rewind I've ever typed and I'm not even out of the top stories section yet.
  • Next month's Onita vs. Choshu exploding barbed wire match will air on PPV, which will be the first live PPV ever for NJPW. In Japan, PPV is still in its infancy and hasn't really caught on the way it has in the U.S. so there's never really been a drive to push towards running PPV because there's not a lot of money in it. But Choshu coming out of retirement after more than 2 years is expected to be a big draw so they decided to give this PPV thing a whirl. In the future, NJPW hopes to run more PPVs and also wants to air all house shows on the internet.
  • Naoya Ogawa announced he will be vacating the NWA title so he can train for a shoot fight against Rickson Gracie (he does indeed vacate the title soon but the Gracie fight never happens because Rickson's son dies and he basically retires after that).
  • Antonio Inoki recently made a trip to Minnesota to meet with Jesse Ventura and while he was there, he also stopped by a training camp where both Don Frye and Brock Lesnar were training. In Japanese magazines, they had a photo of Inoki wrestling with Lesnar and in the photo, Inoki is in a dominant position, on top of Lesnar and pinning him. Dave thinks it's hilarious because the photo was obviously staged. In a real grappling session, Lesnar would eat Inoki for breakfast (I can't find this picture anywhere so I'm gonna need one of you internet sleuths to come through for me on this).
  • There was a big interview with Bruno Sammartino in a Charleston newspaper this week. Sammartino talked about Mark Madden's recent comment about Bruno turning over in his grave after David Arquette won the title. Sammartino and Madden don't like each other and the comment led to Sammartino threatening a lawsuit against WCW and Madden apologizing. Bruno admitted he was pissed by the comment because Madden said it purposefully and said he doesn't want to be associated with the garbage that either WWF or WCW is doing these days. He said he wants to be done with wrestling completely and only recently made an appearance at an indie show because he had already committed to it, even though he didn't want to do it. He also talked about his son David's use of steroids, which Bruno had been very publicly against for years and said he didn't know for sure that David was using them until he had a health scare and nearly died in Japan in 1989. The drug issues led to Bruno and David being estranged and they haven't spoken in years.
  • Dave talks about the most recent RF Video "shoot interview" with Bill Watts and says it's the most interesting interview of that kind that he's ever seen. This was still in the early days when RF Video had only done a handful of these. They would go on to release probably hundreds of shoot videos in the future but they were still a new novelty at this point.
  • Dave himself will be interviewed on Superstar Billy Graham's new website superstarbillygraham.com. And guess what? I dug through Web Archive and actually found the damn thing! Enjoy this Dave Meltzer interview from 2000. And be sure to click "Continue" at the bottom of the page for more:
READ: Dave Meltzer interview from Superstar Billy Graham's website - 2000
  • Limp Bizkit lead singer Fred Durst recently appeared at an Incredibly Strange Wrestling event in California. Yes, that promotion is somehow still around and no, I can't find footage of this.
  • There was an article in a sports medicine journal about the injuries suffered by pro wrestlers, and they spoke to Dr. James Andrews, the most famous sports doctor around. Andrews talked about how he's been treating wrestlers dating back to the territory days in the 70s and said he's seeing more injuries now because the style is more demanding. He said he also sees a lot of retired wrestlers with degenerative knee issues that are becoming disabled. Herniated discs and should subluxations are frequent, and rotator cuff injuries are becoming more common along with muscle and tendon tears and ACL injuries. He said rib fractures are so frequent that most wrestlers don't even bother seeking treatment for them. He also talked about how much wrestlers work hurt or push themselves too hard while still recovering or go back to wrestling too soon. There was also a lot in the article about how doctors are seeing more children with those kinds of injuries due to mimicking what they see on TV.
  • Paul Heyman gave a big pep talk to the ECW locker room again this week. Dave says that, "He did his entire speech without talking about money, apparently to see if anyone would speak out about it. Nobody did. He then paid everyone, so checks are caught up." Anyway, Heyman basically said that they're pretty much just in a wait-and-see situation until the USA Network vs. WWF trial finishes up because that will determine the future of what happens with Raw/TNN and, in turn, what happens with ECW. Regardless of how it turns out, Heyman wants out of the TNN deal and had lawyers send a notice to TNN accusing them of breaching their agreement. So even if the judge rules against WWF in the trial and they don't end up going to TNN, Heyman is still pushing to get out of it so they can get a TV deal somewhere else.
  • Various ECW notes: they've had talks with both Bobby Eaton and Psicosis and hope to have both signed and debut at the next PPV but neither has signed as of yet (Psicosis does and spends about 2 months in ECW. Eaton never does). Super Crazy is expected to be back in a few weeks. Sandman will be back from his suspension this week.
  • After Justin Credible became the ECW champion and Lance Storm went to WCW, the ECW tag titles were vacated and have pretty much been forgotten. But there's talk of doing a tournament or something for them in August at the New York TV tapings to crown new champions (it wasn't a tournament but yeah).
  • Speaking of TNN and ECW, the back and forth war continued on this week's episode of ECW on TNN. Right at the end of the show, during the finish of the Credible vs. Jerry Lynn title match and show-ending angle, TNN filled almost the entire screen with a huge promo for the Arena Football League game that was starting next, so the finish of the match and all the post-match stuff couldn't be seen. Dave says ECW has occasionally seemed whiny in all their complaints about TNN, but in this case, they're right because what TNN did was totally unnecessary and it was clearly an intentional "fuck you" to ECW and to everyone watching the show. In this case, Dave says ECW has a pretty valid complaint against TNN.
  • Notes from WCW Nitro: the show opened with Horace Hogan challenging Goldberg because he was standing up for Hulk Hogan, who was injured. Dave points out that Horace and Hulk have turned on each other a million times in the last few years, including just a few weeks ago, but hey, who gives a shit about continuity anymore? Lance Storm debuted in a big angle with the announcers doing the whole "What's he doing here? He doesn't even work for us!" schtick. Dave notes that WCW announced Lance Storm's signing on their website and even already had his profile page up on the site. Dave thinks this is pretty stupid, especially considering all WCW does these days is book the show for internet fans and now they're pretending to those same fans that Lance Storm is some sort of outsider. Booker T dropped the GI Bro gimmick which is good because Dave says it was a career-killer, just like Terry Taylor and the Red Rooster, so it's good he got out of it before it could last long enough to really damage him (he'll be WCW champion in less than a month). Goldberg, the heel, got the biggest babyface pop of the show, by far. Ernest Miller was in the crowd and at one point it looked like he attacked a fan. Dave thought it may be a plant, but the cameras cut away real quick and it wasn't acknowledged so it may have been real. A week ago, David Flair was Vince Russo's psychopath sidekick hitting people with a crowbar. This week, with Russo not around, his whole gimmick changed to smooth talking ladies man and they had him making out with Miss Hancock. And on and on and on. Picking apart Nitro is just shooting fish in a barrel at this point, it's too easy.
  • Various WCW notes: Johnny Ace was backstage at Nitro helping out with some things (he quietly retired when the AJPW/NOAH split happened and gets hired as an agent in WCW around this time). Chris Candido has a broken wrist. Bash at the Beach has only sold 2,000 tickets so far. They're scaling down capacity of the building to 5,000 so it may have a chance of actually selling out. Great Muta was supposed to be on Nitro but had visa issues and should be there next week. Sting is out for the next month for....reasons, I guess. They want him to come back with a new look but he's against it. Goldberg has a concussion. Ric Flair is having rotator cuff surgery this week and should be out 2-4 months. Jimmy Hart has been off TV because back in March, during the Mancow match, he tore some knee ligaments. Kidman and Torrie Wilson missed Nitro because they're moving in together and were busy handling all the moving stuff.
  • The story with Kimberly quitting WCW is apparently because something happened between her and Scott Steiner. The previous night, when Steiner found out she wouldn't take a bump in an angle with him, he reportedly called her a nasty name and she overheard it and demanded an apology. He refused, one thing led to another, and she walked out. Dave says there's rumors that it might be a work but he doesn't seem to think so. For what it's worth, others in the locker room have been comparing Kimberly to Sable, saying she's gotten too full of herself and thinks she's the big star of the show but no matter what her attitude may or may not be, for Steiner to be calling her names is uncalled for (Kimberly has spoken about this since. TL;DR - Steiner called her a "cunt" and got in her face about some other stuff and that was the final straw for her, but she was unhappy before that too).
WATCH: Kimberly discusses Scott Steiner incident
  • Notes from WCW Thunder: Candido and Bigelow vs. Kronik had to be re-done after the taping because they botched the finish when Candido couldn't get the turnbuckle pad off. Candido, Bigelow, and Shane Douglas reformed their old Triple Threat group from ECW because Douglas assured WCW he owned the "Triple Threat" name, not ECW. They had a thing where Nash was supposed to call Scott Hall and his voice was going to air during the show but when it was time to do the skit and they called him, Hall didn't answer the phone so they had to pretend, which is just some peak WCW shit. Anyway, Hall is expected to return in a few weeks (nah). There was a Daffney/Miss Hancock angle but the cameras cut away to crowd shots a couple of times because Daffney's breasts came out of her top.
  • One of Scott Steiner's "freaks" Shakira was released. She had heat because she refused to go to the Power Plant to learn how to take bumps, saying that she had signed with the company to be a valet, not a wrestler. Apparently, she was working on the advice from Steiner and Nash, who had told her she should fight to get a raise if they wanted her to take bumps, so she did and, well, it didn't work out and Terry Taylor called her and fired her instead. Steiner was said to be especially upset with her being canned.
  • La Parka, Psicosis, Silver King, Dandy, Lodi, Barbarian and Los Villanos were all released by WCW this week. As mentioned before, ECW is interested in Psicosis. With the racial discrimination lawsuit still ongoing, this might not be the smartest time to, you know, fire almost every Mexican wrestler they have. Dave says some of them are expected to join the lawsuit. But word is WCW is pretty confident about their chances in the suit and aren't worried about it, which is why they made the decision to release all those guys anyway.
  • They did a thing on TV where Vampiro hit his finisher on Asya. Word is Vampiro was strongly against doing the angle because he's got a history of women being physically abused in his family and didn't want to do anything on TV that glorifies attacking a woman. But Bischoff convinced him to do it to be a team player and he eventually went along with it, though he wasn't happy. 'Member when Bischoff was against all this man-on-woman violence kind of stuff and criticized WWF for it? I 'member.
  • Torrie Wilson is expected to return as Hulk Hogan's valet ("what a shock" Dave says). He also notes that Torrie seems to be the hot new fitness cover girl because she's currently featured in or on the cover of several different fitness magazines that are all on newsstands right now, although it's not like you would know because WCW hasn't mentioned it once. Yet again, one of those little things that WCW always drops the ball on. If this was WWF, they would have hyped the magazines on their TV show, they would have sold record-breaking numbers, and that would lead to other media outlets wanting to put more WWF stars on their magazine covers. See how that works? Because WCW sure doesn't.
  • Several WCW front office employees have made inquiries about transferring to new departments within the Time Warner family because there's concern that WCW may get sold or shut down and they don't want to be out of a job if it happens. We're at the point now where people are actively trying to get off the ship before it sinks.
  • Dave gives more thoughts about the Russo/Flair angle with Flair's head getting shaved last week. Dave says they shouldn't have had Russo do the shaving. Instead, it should have been Russo ordering one of the wrestlers to do it. Russo vs. Flair isn't going to do any kind of business and Russo isn't a wrestler. But, hypothetically, what if they'd had Goldberg do it? Then you get Goldberg more over as a heel and you set up a feud that can actually pay off in a real match that might actually draw money (plus Goldberg could probably learn a thing or two from working a program with Flair). Ric Flair getting his famous hair shaved was probably the last great angle they could do with him at this point in his career and they wasted it on Russo. Plus, with Russo possibly gone from WCW, it looks like Flair may have gotten his head shaved for an angle that can't even pay off now. If it had been a wrestler, it could still be going and wouldn't have been ignored on Nitro this week (yup, it went nowhere).
  • There's a lot of complaints and confusion about the Turner standards & practices rules. On Thunder, Nash cut a promo quoting several famous lines from the movie Deliverance ("purty lips" and "squeal like a pig" for instance) but for whatever reason, Turner standards and practices edited it out, which infuriated Russo, who argued that the movie Deliverance airs on Turner networks all the time and those lines are never edited. I mean...he's not wrong. S&P argued that since the scenes in the movie regard sodomizing someone, they didn't want to portray that on a wrestling show. Everyone in WCW had also been told not to use the word "ass" on TV and yet, somehow on Thunder it was used 11 times, which was basically just Russo's way of rebelling apparently.
  • Ultimo Dragon was in Atlanta working on an out-of-court settlement with WCW due to his career-ending injury from the botched surgery he had. Those who know him have said that his physical condition hasn't improved and he still has no feeling in his hand, so his career is still over (he eventually gets another surgery in 2002 that fixes some of the problems and allows him to return to the ring but yeah, until then, he was done).

IMPORTANT OBSERVER REWIND NOTE: For the first time ever in writing these Rewinds, I seem to have reached the character limit. Which is crazy to me. Considering how long past Rewinds were (Owen Hart post, Screwjob post, steroid trial post, etc.), I'm flabbergasted that I somehow hit the limit with this random Rewind. So anyway....this rest of this Rewind will be posted in a comment below, so keep scrolling. Upvote it for visibility I guess?

So we're coming up on the end of this year. Unless I miss a day between now and then, 1999 will wrap up on Aug. 20th.
From there, I'm going to take 3-4 weeks off. I'm still writing up the 2000 ones and I'm not as far ahead as I'd like to be, so I want to try to finish up those first. I like to try to always be working on the following year because I'm afraid of catching up to myself. So anyway, that's the plan for now!
  • Steve Austin's in-ring career is still in doubt following bad news on test results on his neck. In the last few weeks, he was getting numbness and tingling in his arms, fingers, and shoulders. Following tests earlier this month, WWF altered plans and wrote Austin out of the picture. The original plans called for Austin, as a heel champ (he would turn after winning the title at Rumble from Triple H), to face and lose the title to babyface Rock at Wrestlemania, but all those plans are out the window now and they made Big Show the champ instead. The MRI results showed that Austin has several discs in his neck that are messed up dating back to the Owen Hart piledriver 2 years ago as well as spinal stenosis which is a separate issue that has probably just been gradually worsening throughout his career by taking bumps every night. Austin also had a myelogram procedure done, where they shoot dye into the spine to get a better look at the damage. No word on exactly what that revealed yet but word is that it wasn't good. Austin has been meeting with the top neck specialists in the country on the issue.
  • This hasn't been breaking news to Austin. Ever since the Owen injury, he always knew he was on borrowed time as a wrestler. Dave actually says that Austin and Bill Goldberg met each other awhile back and had talked about doing a big match together in a few years and Austin told him that he didn't know if he'd still be around that long. After returning from the Owen injury, Austin adjusted his in-ring style to a safer style that was easier on his neck (no bumps anywhere near it) and cut back his schedule so he usually doesn't work house shows in smaller markets anymore. The idea has been to gradually position Rock as the company's new top babyface and ease Austin out of the top spot. There's a lot of interest in him as an actor, especially since he did monster ratings for Nash Bridges last year. Despite not being able to wrestle, WWF has talked about bringing him back to TV sooner rather than later in a non-wrestling role, because he's got the biggest guaranteed contract of any wrestler in WWF history and they don't want to keep paying him all that money and not get some use out of him.
  • Dave recaps a recent MMA fight with Kazushi Sakuraba who defeated Royler Gracie, becoming the first man to score a decisive victory over a Gracie in a Vale Tudo match. Sakuraba started out as a pro wrestler in UWFI and grew up idolizing the original Tiger Mask. (Sakuraba would later become known as the "Gracie Hunter" because he ends up having wins over 4 different members of the Gracie family. He also later went to NJPW alongside Shibata and spent a few years there as a midcard guy.)
  • WCW's Mayhem PPV is in the books and was a weird show. It was in Toronto and the crowd basically went full-Canada. Cheering who they hate, booing who they love...ya know, just having fun Maggle! Multiple times during the show, WCW turned down the crowd audio when they were booing the "wrong" person. Sting was booed out of the building against Bret, which was expected. Others, like Goldberg and Booker T being booed caught WCW by surprise. Just to show you how far WCW has fallen in less than a year, this show drew about 14,000 people which is a solid number, but was still 2,000 short of a sell-out. For comparison's sake, the last time WCW came to Toronto back at the beginning of 1999, for a Nitro, the show sold out in 15 minutes. This time, for a PPV with weeks of promotion, the show failed to sell out even though most people knew Bret Hart would be winning the WCW title and even that wasn't enough to pack the building. So not good signs. Although to be fair, they also got kinda fucked over by WWF, who booked the nearby Skydome the night before for a house show in one of those "coincidences" that has happened countless times over the years.
  • Other notes from WCW Mayhem: the show featured the semifinals and finals of the WCW title tournament. Evan Karagis vs. Disco Inferno was bad because Karagis, in his first major PPV singles match, was nervous as hell and blew a million spots. Negative star for that one. Curt Hennig lost a "retirement" match to Buff Bagwell, and the crowd spent part of the match chanting boring, although Hennig did get a big ovation after he lost. Dave expects him back in a few weeks. Sting wore a t-shirt during his match to hide his physique because he's looking kinda flabby these days. Vampiro vs. Berlyn was a clusterfuck that turned into an excuse for Steve Williams and Ed Ferrara to mock Jim Ross some more, yet again making fun of the Bells Palsy stuff which Dave is pretty disgusted by. Ferrara is now going by the name Oklahoma. Another negative star for this one. Yet another negative star for Meng vs. Lex Luger. David Flair vs. Kimberly gets negative two stars and was less of a match and more of a blowjob tease. But once Kimberly started beating him up, the crowd just booed the shit out of it. And Bret Hart beat Chris Benoit in the main event to win the WCW title in a good match but not as good as their Nitro match in Kansas City a few months back.
  • FMW in Japan ran their biggest show of the year which featured Terry and Dory Funk teaming up in Japan for the first time since 1987 and also featured appearances by WWF's Shawn Michaels and several ECW stars. There were reports that FMW overspent for the show and that if it wasn't successful, it could be devastating for the company. Word is they spent around $500,000 putting the show together (including $50,000 for Michaels alone, and all he did was referee the main event) and it's unknown whether they broke even or not. FMW heavily promoted Michaels' appearance but when he came out, his reaction was decent, but really no better than Raven or Tommy Dreamer got. Meanwhile, the Funk brothers got by far the biggest pop of the show. Along with Raven and Dreamer, ECW wrestlers Balls Mahoney, Francine, and Jazz also worked the show and all did jobs. And in the main event, Hayabusa (wrestling simply as H) defeated a fake Hayabusa. It was a no DQ match and of course, Michaels got involved, getting bumped at one point and hitting fake Hayabusa with a superkick.
WATCH: FMW Judgment Day - FULL SHOW
  • While he was in Japan, Michaels set up a deal with FMW to work with his San Antonio-based TWA promotion. FMW will send rookies to TWA for training, while Michaels will send his best students to work tours in Japan for experience. On the next FMW tour, two of Michaels' 18-year-old students will work the shows. One of them is a former high school football player who wrestles as Lance Cade, while the other is a high-flying junior heavyweight wrestler that goes by the name American Dragon (we all know him by another name these days).
  • Nitro closed the ratings gap significantly this week. I mean, Raw still wiped the floor with them, but it was the closest that ratings have been in awhile, with Raw doing a 5.51 rating (the lowest in months) and Nitro doing a 3.41 rating. Fans tuned out of Raw in droves during the main event (Triple H vs. the Acolytes in a segment that also saw Vince McMahon return) and switched over to Nitro to watch Goldberg and Vicious vs. Hall and Nash (enjoy this one. It's pretty much the last good ratings news WCW is ever going to have. The Russo train is all downhill from here, aside from a brief stop in Sullivanville). Meanwhile, Thunder did its second lowest rating ever against Smackdown.
  • Gordon Solie is recovering well after recently having surgery to remove his vocal chords. Dave says that after Solie's wife died from cancer, Solie didn't care anymore if he lived or died and had pretty much given up on life. When he first found out he had cancer, he didn't even want to get it treated but was eventually talked into it. The only thing to get rid of the cancer was this surgery, but it would take away his voice forever. Solie was in such feeble condition that he figured he would die during the surgery but he went through with it anyway and survived and is now said to be doing well (goddamn, this is sad. Anyway, he only lives another 8 months or so after this).
  • Lawler has threatened to sue Doug Gilbert and Power Pro Wrestling over Gilbert's comments a few weeks ago on live TV when he made the comment about Lawler raping a little girl. Dave doesn't know if a lawsuit will actually happen though because it would cost Lawler a lot of money in legal fees and even if he wins, there's probably not much money to be made. Power Pro, just like all the Memphis promotions that came before it, operates on a shoestring budget and guys like Doug Gilbert probably aren't exactly making a great living off of it. So Lawler could sue them, but it might not be worth the trouble.
  • An indie wrestler who wrestles under the name Lupus in New Jersey suffered serious injury in a ladder match when his foot slipped as he was jumping off the ladder. He came up short of the guys he was trying to land on and cracked his head on the concrete floor outside the ring. He had to be airlifted to a nearby hospital but he's expected to recover and be fine. I wonder if he went to see Dr. House....
  • The situation for RollerJam on TNN is looking dire. They were planning to run a PPV and a live show tour, but the tour was cancelled due to poor ticket sales. Dave doesn't understand what the fuck these people are even doing. RollerJam booked the same size arenas that WWF and WCW book (the big 15,000+ seat buildings). But the problem is, even WCW can't fill most of those buildings anymore. And RollerJam's TV ratings are lower than ECW's ratings. And ECW would never dare try to run a major arena like WWF and WCW because it would be financial suicide. So why RollerJam thought they had a chance is beyond Dave.
  • Dynamite Kid did an interview recently to promote his book and had lots of interesting things to say. Said the toughest man he ever met was Meng. Said his best friends in the business were Danny Spivey, Moondog Spot, Harley Race, Ultimate Warrior, and Bret Hart. Said he feels like he's watching himself when he watches Chris Benoit. Said he'll never be able to walk again. Felt his best matches ever were his 1-hour draws with Bret Hart in Stampede. Said his favorite company to work for was AJPW. Said if he could have 1 last match against anyone, it would be a shoot match against Davey Boy Smith. Thought the Big Show dad/cancer angle was disgusting. Says if he was Bret Hart in 1997, he would have never let himself be put in a submission during that match and in fact, he probably wouldn't even have shown up to the show and would have kept the belt. And said he won't attend or appear at any wrestling events because he doesn't want to embarrass himself in front of a crowd since he's in a wheelchair.
  • ECW's video game deal with Acclaim was officially announced this week. The deal was done months ago but couldn't be announced until Acclaim's contract with WWF expired, which it finally did. As part of the deal, Acclaim has taken approximately a 15% stock interest in ECW. The money from the deal will allow ECW to pay off much of its existing debt and puts the company back on more stable financial footing. They were hoping to have the first ECW video game out before Christmas but it's not going to make it and instead will be out in February. It's expected to be the first wrestling game with an M rating and will have barbed wire matches and other hardcore-type things.
  • ECW filmed a major angle with popular band Limp Bizkit in Peoria, IL. Turns out the band was having a concert at the arena across town the same night as the ECW show so they worked out a deal with the band to appear and do an angle. It led to Steve Corino talking about how much he loved the Backstreet Boys, only for Fred Durst to come out and it led to an angle with him and Axl Rotten and Balls Mahoney beating on Corino. (I always had a thing for Serena Altschul. Man, this video takes me back).
WATCH: 1999 MTV News report of Fred Durst in ECW
  • Apparently Arnold Schwarzeneggar's people reached out to ECW about doing something with them to promote his new movie, because he had such a good time doing Smackdown. But the 2 sides couldn't work out a deal so it didn't happen.
  • The new woman who came out with Danny Doring on last week's TNN show is the ex-wife of Big Dick Dudley and works as a stripper under the name Elektra (same name she would continue to use in ECW).
  • Dave breaks down the planned card for Starrcade in a few weeks which will be headlined by Bret Hart vs. Goldberg for the WCW title (somebody get Bret a helmet for that one). Tickets have been on sale for a bit and they're moving pretty slow, which isn't a good sign for WCW's biggest show of the year.
  • Notes from Nitro: Scott Hall was either wasted or doing a great job of acting like he was (just out of curiosity, I went on the Network to watch this and see. And yeah, Hall seems a little gone here. Sorta slurring a little and just generally looking drunk. But in funnier news, he's also wearing a t-shirt for a Michigan strip club called The Landing Strip). A couple of dudes debuted, one of whom was Vito from ECW and the other is a guy named John Hugger, who's been training at the Power Plant (later known as Rellik which, if you haven't heard, is 'Killer' backwards). A commercial for ECW's November to Remember PPV aired nationally during the show. Endless stupid and terrible matches. Malenko vs. Benoit had a flag match and Dave says you have to be a special kind of genius to put these 2 in a bad match together, but Russo managed to do it. Malenko threatened to burn the Canadian flag, leading Bret Hart to do a half-hearted run in, looking like he didn't want to be anywhere near this angle. Russo (still not shown on camera, but talking off screen) was all over this episode and has basically made himself the unseen Vince McMahon-like star of the show.
  • The New York Times did a story on Russo, Ferrara and WCW in general. It mentioned that Fox executives are still wanting to get into the wrestling business, which leads Dave to mention that Rupert Murdoch actually tried to buy WWF last year but Vince shot him down. The article claimed Fox still wants to start their own promotion and build it around Hulk Hogan. Dave can't even begin to list all the reasons why that's a bad idea in 1999. The article featured quotes from Russo, including one where he says that when he was in WWF, the ratings got so high and they got so comfortable that they pretty much just started writing shows to entertain themselves. It also mentioned that Bret Hart doesn't hold any ill will towards Russo and Ferrara even though they were the ones who scripted the stunt that killed Owen.
  • The storyline plans with Hogan are to basically do an age discrimination lawsuit angle, with the idea that Russo doesn't want Hogan because he's too old. After the real lawsuit between Flair and Bischoff last year got Flair over huge as a babyface, they figure they'll fake it this time. The plan is for Hogan's lawsuit to be settled with him returning as a preliminary wrestler and the storyline being that he has to work his way back up to the main event (Inoki did a famous storyline like this in the 80s). So Hogan would start by working opening matches against the usual first hour Nitro nobodies and as he gradually works his way up the card, the evil heel boss Vince Russo will start trying to throw obstacles in his way, with the hopes of turning Hogan/Russo into WCW's version of Austin/McMahon.
  • Speaking of storylines, the plan for Bret Hart after Starrcade is to basically redo his 1997 WWF angle, with him becoming more and more pro-Canadian until the U.S. fans turn on him and then basically redo the Canada vs. U.S. angle. Dave says great, now if they can just get Steve Austin, maybe they can turn this sinking ship around. You'll notice that all these big planned angles are just carbon copies of what WWF already did.
  • Various other WCW notes: WCW's only house show last week was in Cleveland and drew around 3,000 people which is basically the same numbers ECW does in that market. Prince Iaukea may be having his name chaned to "The Artist Formerly Known As Prince Iaukea" and start doing a Prince gimmick. Elizabeth's name may be changed to "The Hot Package." Fitness model Trish Stratus was backstage at Nitro and has been looking to get into wrestling.
  • WWF has banned World of Wrestling (WOW) magazine photographers from being at ringside and shooting photos. Because WOW is printed on high-stock quality full color paper, WWF sees it as competition to their own magazine, so no more WOW at ringside. All the shitty, black and white, cheap Apter mag photographers are still welcome.
  • There's been talk of doing a retirement angle with Mick Foley, but as of now it's been nixed. They do plan to lighten up his schedule significantly. Foley has said he doesn't want to have a retirement match and then be one of those guys who comes back. So basically, Foley is expected to ease into more of a part-time role from now on.
  • Undertaker is expected to be back by the Rumble, as his groin injury is still healing. He's also scheduled to work some shows in December in Puerto Rico for Victor Quinones' IWA promotion (Taker works one show in Puerto Rico but he basically just stands on the apron because he's not recovered yet. He doesn't actually return to WWE until May, when he comes back as Biker Taker). Also, while they've both been out, Paul Bearer has lost nearly 50 pounds.
  • As mentioned awhile back, Coca-Cola dropped its sponsorship of WWF due to the adult content, which is a huge blow, but they're still sponsoring WCW. It's the first and best example of what Bischoff predicted would happen, that advertisers would start pulling out of WWF over concerns with the content. A second major sponsor, the U.S. Army, followed suit this week and pulled all their ads from Smackdown after getting pressure from a group called the Parents Television Council (the PTC....man, we're gonna be hearing a LOT about these fuckers in the coming year or two). The WWF is worried about a domino effect starting and the PTC is putting pressure on a lot of company sponsors. WWF has asked fans to start writing letters to those sponsors, telling them how much they like the WWF. Jim Ross read a prepared statement about it on Raw and it's obvious WWF is concerned.
  • In typical WWF fashion, they've started lashing out at the PTC, calling out the head of the organization, L. Brent Bozell III, by name. It's something WWF always does when they don't want to actually debate the merits of an argument against them: just launch bitter attacks at the "enemy" instead. The PTC is a group that is endorsed by several notable celebrities and politicians, such Steve Allen, Orson Bean, Senator Joe Lieberman, Pat Boone, and Dean Jones. In the past, WWF has argued that their show isn't in bad taste and doesn't portray rape or murder. The PTC put out a press release, pointing out the instance a few weeks ago on Raw when it looked like a woman (implied to be Stephanie) was about to be gang raped in the locker room by DX (yup, that happened. One of the early Nov. episodes). And the Austin hit by a car angle, which they referred to as "attempted vehicular manslaughter" and said that's awfully close to an attempted murder storyline. They also railed against the Big Show fathecancer angle, the bad language, the middle fingers, etc. The PTC got a lot of publicity previously by trying to take down Howard Stern, but they didn't really have any success there. Anyway, after getting the U.S. Army to pull sponsorship, this week the PTC is pushing both the U.S. Coast Guard and Burger King to pull their sponsorships next. In somewhat related news, WWF has also continued shit-talking and burying Walmart on TV after Walmart (and several other stores) pulled the Al Snow action figure.
  • Speaking of the Big Show angle, the way it played out wasn't the original plan, which was to build Big Show back up as a top star. The angle was conceived by Terry Taylor. The idea was for Show's father to die and be cremated, and then Undertaker would steal the urn and flush the ashes down the toilet, building to a main event level storyline between Big Show and Undertaker. But with Taker still out injured and Terry Taylor leaving for WCW, plans got changed around and it ended with Big Show being comically dragged through a cemetery riding a coffin by Big Bossman.
  • And speaking of the PTC, WWF is planning an angle about them, which is why you've been seeing some guy in the crowd lately holding signs proclaiming WWF is immoral and whatnot. The idea is to do a religious zealot angle where a group of wrestlers are trying to clean up the company (we're still many months away from the RTC being born but the idea was there at this point already).
  • There's talk of putting Amy Dumas together with Papi Chulo when she makes her WWF debut. It's still going to be awhile because she's recovering from breast enhancement surgery (yup, she comes in as Lita and his name gets changed to Essa Rios and they're paired together for a minute when she debuts).
  • Randy Savage's girlfriend Gorgeous George is reportedly telling everyone that she's headed to WWF. George, real name Stephanie Bellars, is still under WCW contract until June. Savage's WCW contract expires in January and it's widely expected that he'll be returning to WWF but there's been no real negotiations as far as Dave knows. WWF also has a lot of interest in Ric Flair still. Dave thinks Flair would be a good idea simply because he can still cut amazing promos and when used sparingly, can still have good matches. Savage sucks at both nowadays so he's not sure if signing him would be a good idea, but given the wrestling war, nobody with the fame and name value that Savage has will go un-signed for long. And even if they do bring him in, it probably won't be for a big money deal because then, to get their money's worth, they'd have to actually push him as a top star and nobody wants that.

2017.06.06 19:42 The__Good__Doctor Celebrating 200 Episodes of the Super Best Friend Cast! A Statistical Analysis of Podcast Titles

Hello, everyone! I have been a huge fan of the Zaibatsu for years, stretching all the back to Street Fighter Stupidity 2: Headbite Harder back in 2008! I haven't watched many of the LP's on the channel, but I have always kept up to date with the Friendcast. The Friendcast is my favorite podcast and is the main way I keep up with the Zaibatsu. Everything about this podcast is consistently great, even when it's terrible. Pat's proclamations of rather having nothing, Woolie's exasperation and trying to keep it all together. Matt's frequent asides to stuff that has nothing to do with the current topic in order to talk about Rob Liefeld and Fred Durst. Liam's excitement for Vita games I have never even heard of. I love the way these guys bounce off each other and go off on wild tangents.
To pay tribute to 200 Episodes of the podcast, I have arranged some of the crazier podcast titles into categories that show off what the podcast is truly about, along with a section at the end with my personal favorite episodes.

2017.01.21 23:08 psychrev Billy Corgan buys a piece of the Gold Coast

Ten months after selling his Victorian painted lady mansion in Lake View for $1 million, former Smashing Pumpkins lead singer and chief songwriter Billy Corgan has paid $2.95 million for a recently renovated, historic six-room condominium on the Gold Coast.
After disbanding the Smashing Pumpkins, Corgan formed a new group, Zwan, which is playing three sold-out shows at the Double Door this weekend.
Through his tour manager, Corgan declined to comment on the purchase of the two-bedroom condo. His tour manager confirmed that the singer-songwriter recently has been staying at the condo while rehearsing for Zwan's current tour, but said the Chicago-area native ultimately intends to lease the condo in a 110-year-old building to someone else. The unit has an oak-paneled living room, reception room, balcony framed by granite columns, four fireplaces, walnut parquet floors and a large terrace.
Corgan has shown an affinity for vintage properties. After moving out of the more than 100-year-old Lake View home at 3448 N. Greenview Ave., which he owned from 1993 to 2001, Corgan temporarily stayed in a penthouse in the Haberdasher Square loft development, 728 W. Jackson Blvd., a former manufacturing building that dates to 1926. And in 2000, the Landmarks Preservation Council of Illinois awarded Corgan its President's Award for his commitment to historic preservation.
Since Corgan sold his Lake View home, one Smashing Pumpkins Web site reported that he has been living in Italy, but in interviews he has declined any comment on his permanent residence.
Singer Courtney Love, whom Corgan dated many years ago, just sold her loft in downtown Manhattan for $3 million after buying it for $2.6 million in January 2001, according to the New York Post. The loft is in the same building where rocker Lenny Kravitz just listed his own, five-bedroom, 7,000-square-foot, multilevel loft for $16 million, after buying the space unfinished in October 2000 for $8 million, the Post reported.
Love also recently listed her almost 3,700-square-foot Spanish-style house on Los Angeles' Westside -- which she bought last June for $3 million -- for about the same price, according to the Los Angeles Times. Love reportedly is looking for another house in the area because her five-bedroom house, which was built in the 1920s, is too small.
Ironically, Love told the Times last year that she sold a four-bedroom, 4,700-square-foot French country-style house on almost 2 acres in the Hollywood Hills -- which she had purchased from Ellen DeGeneres in 1997 for about $3 million -- because she was planning to spend more time in New York and actually wanted something smaller in L.A. She sold the Hollywood Hills home for $3.995 million in March 2001 to British businessman Mike Walley. Love's former Hollywood Hills house made the news in November 2001, after Paul McCartney's fellow Beatle George Harrison died. After Harrison's representatives gave a bogus L.A. address on his death certificate, the county's district attorney revealed in February that Harrison actually had died at Walley's house.
Rocker Tom Petty has paid close to $2.5 million for a three-bedroom oceanfront home in Malibu, Calif., according to the Los Angeles Times. Built in 1974, the house has three fireplaces, Malibu tiles and a courtyard with a fountain, the paper reported ... Fred Durst, frontman for the rock group Limp Bizkit, has sold a house he never moved into in Bel Air, Calif., for $3.7 million because it had "vibes that were not quite correct for him," according to the Los Angeles Times. Last fall, Durst bought the four-bedroom, 6,600-square-foot house, which was once owned by the Doors' Robbie Krieger and has a carving of the Doors playing on one wall, for just under $4 million, the paper reported. Durst recently bought a house with a sound studio in L.A.'s Hollywood Hills, and has listed that home for $1.4 million, the Times reported.

2016.12.15 22:09 indifferences No matter how serious something is, it will be over eventually (life lesson I recently learned)

One of the worst things about anxiety is that it makes whatever bad things going on in your life so much worse, sometimes unbearable. I didn't intend for this post to be this long, but it tells a story and some of you may find it interesting.
I learned a major life lesson the hard way, starting about 8 months ago. I'm 20 years old, and one night when I was at a party and got way too drunk to the point of blacking out, which is when I did some pretty stupid shit. Nothing theft or violence related, but the closest thing I will call it is "vandalism" as I do not want to go too in detail about the specifics of the situation.
I woke up the next morning very confused. I was blacked out the night before, which essentially means that my brain was unable to form new short-term memories and as such I had literally no remembrance of the night other than a few fragments. I had a strong feeling that I did something wrong, but that's all it was, a feeling. Anyway, I get a text from my friend who was apparently there saying "You know you're going to have to pay for [that]." And my heart immediately sunk. I asked him what he meant, and he told me the whole story of what happened, and I was in utter disbelief. This was so unlike me, so unlike anything I would do while I am in a right state of mind, but being black out drunk can lead to some VERY dangerous situations. This is not the life lesson, but seriously be conscious of how much you are drinking. It's the typical story; I was at a college party with delicious jungle juice and lost complete track of how much I was drinking.
Anyway, I knew I was going to get arrested for what I did. I was just waiting on when. There were witnesses who saw me and filed a police report, and about a week later I got a call from the police department asking me to come in for questioning. I was scared shitless from the call, and not to mention from the moment I found out what I did I was essentially in a never-ending anxiety attack because I have never gotten into legal trouble before, never even been pulled over.
This all happened at the end of the Spring semester only a few weeks before I was going back to my home state. I never called the police department back (because you should never ever talk to the police), and I hadn't been arrested yet, so I kind of assumed they didn't care much or forgot about it. I went home and had a fun, normal summer.
So then I come back this semester, about 4 months ago, and I'm in my dorm for a total of 2 days before I heard loud banging at my door. I open it and what do you know, it's a campus safety officer standing next to two police officers. They ask me my name, I reluctantly say yes, and they yank me into the hallway, cuff me and take me out to the car.
This was on the second day of the new school year being in a new dorm, and I'm being escorted out of the building by two officers in cuffs. It was so fucking embarrassing.
So they take me to the station, book me, lock me up, and I was in there all day. I called my dad, who called a bondsman, and eventually I got let out. I had already told my parents the day after I did the crime what I did, because I was scared as shit and knew I was going to get in trouble so I had to tell them.
From there, it was all court dates and lawyers. I don't know how many of you have been the defendant in a criminal case, but it is not fun to say the least. The lack of transparency as to what is going on and the fact that the result of the case was entirely out of my hands is enough to drive an anxious person like me crazy.
Now, 4 months after being arrested, the process is finally dying down. I got off lucky and was entered into some program because it was my first offense, and I am basically on probation with community service hours and I have to pay restitution for the damage I did. There is still a lot of paperwork I've been doing and stuff, so the anxiety isn't completely gone, but my god the fact that the worst part of this shit is all over is so fucking relieving. This whole thing has caused me thousands of dollars in fees and countless hours of horrible thinking, and all I can say is that I'm glad it's over. I hate the government much more than I did before, but that's a different story (not saying that I disagree with justice, but I disagree with the scare tactics used by the government throughout this case).
Overall, the 8 months that this has taken place over have been hell. From the time where I did the crime up until the point I got arrested was a constant state of "oh god what's going to happen," then after I got arrested it was all these court dates, lawyers, fees, so much shit to keep track of all while I am in school trying to get good grades. I have already had general anxiety my whole life, but this entire process has given me something real and tangible to constantly be focused on and worrying about. I had moved away from my normal "what if my mom dies, what if I stop breathing" shit and moved toward "I'm going to be spending a year in jail and I'm fucked" every day. It was a very unhealthy way of thinking and it was a pretty dark time in my life.
But like I said, it's over now, and this is where the lesson lies. This was undoubtedly a very dark time in my life. I spent many sleepless nights worrying about what was going to happen to me, and all I can say now that it's over is to stop taking life so seriously. Whatever shit you get yourself into does not determine your identity or your worth. After this crime, I was associating my identity with the crime I did, constantly thinking bad about myself and wondering how I could do such a thing. But now I realize that you can never judge yourself for something you did in the past, because you didn't even have the same consciousness as you do now. You were a completely different person. And whatever bad shit you are going though, will be over one day. No matter the stress it causes you in the present, the future is yours and I guarantee 5-10 years down the line your life will be completely different.
I will end this with a quote from Fred Durst: "Life is a lesson, you learn it when you're through." There is nothing but truth in that line. You are not expected to know how to do everything or to be perfect. Life is a game that we all play, and one day your problems will all fade away (rhyme unintended). There's a reason why Bob Marley said that "every little thing is gonna be alright," because truly it will be.
Thanks to anyone who read this. It was a combination of me getting some stuff off my chest while also hopefully providing you with some valuable thoughts.
tl;dr I got arrested for something stupid I did while drunk (not violence or theft related), and it caused me such immense anxiety throughout the whole arrest and court process that, now that it's over, I realize that you will push through whatever obstacles you face. Your present mindset has no bearing on the future, and down the line things will be different.

2016.10.16 23:12 LapnLook The Downward Spiral (Halo 08) Survivor - Round 9!

Welcome everyone to the NINth round of our The Downward Spiral survivor series! Last time around, the pigs have stopped marching, thanks to you (and by 'you' I mean whoever was voting for it. Now doesn't it make you feel better? Well, if it does, then pick a new song to vote for. If not, then I guess keep voting for the one you want to see go next!
"Nothing can stop me now cause I don't care anymore"
1994's The Downward Spiral is the third major release from NIN, and is probably the most iconic one. While the previous two albums have been successful and well know, none of the songs featured had the kind of cultural impact as Closer or Hurt. This was the LP that turned NIN from a good band to hall-of-fame material.
The album features a wide range of different sounds, instead of the more focused genres of Pretty Hate Machine and Broken. From the synthpop-esque Closer through the almost acoustic Hurt to the unrelenting noise of The Becoming, no two tracks are the same. Also featured are a variety of samples, some of which are a bit obscure. I will talk more about these once the songs start getting eliminated.
The Downward Spiral is about a person trying to find escape from the world, and in his attempts to do so drags himself deeper and deeper into the darkest parts of his own mind, while trying to find solace in the world of pleasaure. Think The Wall, except a lot more messed up, and without even a semi-happy resolution.
I'm sure my little description above is not entirely correct or well worded. Feel free to correct any mistakes and I will edit the text accordingly!
