  1. Cheers for the help distracting from my six hour road trip. Viscera in a wind tunnel might be the peak, but Weekend at Terry's hit at just the right time to be the funniest thing ever.

    What are you watching and enjoying?

    Continuing my finishing of seasons lands on Ash vs. the Evil Dead. Wasn't really feeling this season. Still love the cast, but the story no so much. But it definitely picked up on the back half. It ramped up to a satisfying (and large) enough conclusion to the season, and as it turns out, the series and probably the character. Even the coda worked for me.

    Been sitting here for the past half hour trying to enter the Post Wrestling G1 prediction contest. And it is way harder than I thought it would be. Predicting block/overall winner(s) is rather simple. Then looking at the schedule and trying to have drama on the last day and working backwards with points. And then you look multiple guys have zero points. And then you try a spreadsheet. And that was not wise. Now I feel like a need a room full of white boards and a montage. All that to say, new respect to Gedo for booking all of this.

    What are you watching and enjoying?

    For some reason I stopped watching any show over the back half of their respective seasons. Time to catch up. iZombie has went downhill so fast this past season. Not that it was on that high of a hill to begin with. Riverdale has this thing. It isn't good. All the characters are not good people (save maybe one). They can't stop with the murder-killin'. Yet, I enjoy it? Maybe? Why? Blindspot is a show that no one watches. It had an interesting enough mystery for the first season and second season to finish it off. This third season hasn't been the greatest, but still had moments. Then the season finale had to go all 'last 3 episodes of Chuck' and I say fuck that.

    Random question: Is there any fiction that deals with a cured zombie outbreak, more specifically people dealing with the fact they were zombies that killed/ate people?

    The Music Thread

    I love Air. I really do. Moon Safari is most likely my favorite album. Not just by Air, I mean favorite album full stop. I come to realize that in the past year. And yet, I find a concert on YouTube and it really weird to see them play. Kinda like peaking behind the curtain and seeing the true Oz. So weird.

    3 really. One is a concert film, which I wouldn't call a movie.

    It always amazes me how the same company that put on an outstanding Takeover that left me satisfied, energized and anticipating the next chapter also put on a Wrestlemania that left me confused, tired and wondering why I bothered.

    Been paying more attention to the WWE YouTube channel this week. Figured they be putting out some good stuff this week. I was correct.

    Weird Dreams

    The one that always sticks out: For some reason I bring Rihanna to board game night at my friends house. But first, I have to get everybody to sign an NDA. But when my friend takes a picture his victory in some game, he gets Rihanna in the background. And for some reason, with his 33 followers, it goes viral. And this, again for some reason, lands me in a 'rap beef' with Drake. Which then leads to a tag team rap battle in the Skydome after a Blue Jays game. Only, Jose Bautista homers in the 9th (major bat flip) to send it into extras. And then I wake up.

    Interested in seeing how that plays out. As in, I have no idea who is left in LU after they offered releases. But why the hell not? Everyone is already in New Orleans, why not another show? Side note: (Most) Everything happening that weekend. I knew that Mania Weekend was packed full, but damn.

    So, Stephanie McMahon will be on commentary for the women's Royal Rumble. Well, that killed a lot of my excitement for the match.

    What Podcasts are You Listening To?

    Any suggestions for podcasts that are about 30 minutes or under? I like to listen to things in full. Everything I listen to is an hour+ and sometimes I have 30 minutes and nothing to fill that gap.

    Catching up on NXT and Ultima Lucha Tres (so far behind). Two things: - Switching the corners of a tag match is really jarring. It shouldn't be, but it is. - Luchadors wearing suits are inherently awesome.

    Reason why I still listen to randomness from the library or in the 4/$1 bin at the Goodwill. Yeah, mostly mediocre, sometimes bad, but then you find gems like the Carolina Chocolate Drops. So worth it.

    I finally had a chance to watch WK12 yesterday. And good lord that was a marathon. WWE gets a lot of flack (and deservedly) for their 'more is more' stance on their big shows. NJPW gets a pass and they really shouldn't. Yes, the New Japan shows are better top to bottom. I feel that is not debatable. But WK12 took me all day to get thru. I had to take several breaks. I hit an absolute wall during Tanahashi/White. Not sure I recovered for the main events. I just makes the entire experience less enjoyable than they should be. As for that card itself, it was quite good. Don't think I am as blown away as some of the reviews I have been reading. My best match was probably the Jr 4-way. Worst matches were both tag matches; traditional and 6-man. Jericho/Omega was good. Okada/Naito was better. Okada's pants were the best.

    It is Rumble season and I am surprised that almost none of the Mania card is known. Lesnar vs. Reigns is the only match. Everything else seems fluid. Don't know if that shows a lack of long term planning or things being kept secret for once.

    I know the rule that no one cares about your fantasy team except you. And it is completely true. However, I just won my long time league over my arch-rival. On the literal last play of our season. Which was a fumble recovery returned for a TD by the Eagles as time expired on MNF. The Eagles are his team. The ensuing trash-talk and general mockery from the entire league the past 48 hours has been absolutely glorious. I have been kinda down on fantasy lately, but this has been the most fun.

    The Last Dragon - Been sitting on my coffee table since I saw Taimak on UpUpDownDown. Fun. Just fun. Cry-Baby - Soundtrack came up on random on my drive home, so why not? "Electricity killed my parents!" may be my favorite movie line and I don't really know why it makes me laugh so hard. But it does. Every time.
