Learning is Fun!

The Wrestling Mayhem Show has a tradition where the show closes with everybody sharing what they have learned from wrestling within the past week. I have decided that I learned so much this week in wrestling, that it is worthy of its very own list. So I'm gonna list away!

What I learned from IWC this week is...

-> that Delirious likes Hentai's style.
-> that loving a title belt makes you a pervert.
-> that Sami Callihan lives on the last house on the left. And he will kill Darth Vader.
-> that the IWC entranceway needs to have a built in metal detector.
-> that Chuck Roberts does a nice JBL impression.
-> that J-Rocc and Shane Taylor don't match.
-> that 9-year-olds don't have to know what a suplex is, but should be able to use the word asshole.
-> that Larry Sweeney is now just sour.

What I learned from WWE this week is...

-> that Festus uses a Mariachi Band to show his romantic feelings.
-> that I can't understand Kizarny.
-> that Funaki is kung fu fighting.
-> that you can get a gimmick makeover after years of practically not existing (see: Funaki).
-> that Khali has more game than Primo.
-> that Goldust does not like cross dressers.
-> that Jericho looks good in a suit even without a title belt on his shoulder.

Looking at this list, I would say what I learned in wrestling is much more interesting than what I learned in any of my classes this week. You really can learn so much from the world of sports-entertainment!

The Little Things in Life

Hiya peoples!
I realized two super awesome things today! Don't worry, I'll share:

1. This past weekend at my street's block party (yes my street is that cool), I acquired a candy dispenser similar to a Pez dispenser, but instead it uses Sweet Tarts. And just like Pez dispensers, it's got a fun little character on top. This one happens to be a penguin, which in itself is all kinds of awesome. I've been treating it like a Pez dispenser, and slowly letting the candy come out, but today... I see the side of the label says "Warning: Do not aim at eyes or face." My brain churns for a minute, and I think 'aim? You can aim this thing?' THEN - I come to the ultimate realization that this thing FLINGS CANDY! Now if you had something like that you can't tell me it wouldn't just make your day, right? Right! So needless to say I've been firing Sweet Tarts at people for the rest of the day. Be jealous. =)

2. My brother bought Rockband 2 on Monday, and first of all the injustice is that it took me two whole days before I played it!!! But, no fear, I did play it earlier today. The gameplay is essentially the same as Rockband, which I have no complaints about cause there wasn't really anything wrong with that. One of the amusing (to me at least) new things is that there are more pre-developed characters that have names and everything this time. (American Johnny is pretty sweet.) In between playing songs, I was glancing at the game box and saw something along the lines of 'works with most game instruments.' I figure, let's try the Guitar Hero 3 guitar and see what happens. And wouldn't you know... IT WORKS!!! Day made all over again right there!!! This means that I can use the Guitar Hero 3 guitar to play Rockband, which is awesome because A) I prefer that to the feel of the Rockband guitar and B) we can now have a four-person band instead of just three. WIN! I'm very excited about future rock sessions now. =)

My getting ROCKBAND 2 is worthy of a post all it's own really. 84 new songs and we've signed up to get 20 free bonus ones to download in the near future. And in addition to that we threw down the five bucks to import all our Rockband songs onto the Rockband 2 game. So once we get crackin and unlock more songs on the new game, the available song list will be GINORMOUS!


Thanks for sharing my excitement. Now I gotta 'grow up' and do schoolwork. Peace out homies!
