Brain Cells vs. Star Wars

More precisely, Star Wars Episode V... when Luke is attacked by the Wampa and lost in the snowy desert of Hoth.

My uncle, yesterday having a few beers at a friend's place for a little get-together, reminded me of something my father used to say. His reference was towards a character he knew "back-in-the-day" that was a little off. A friend, Andy, had concluded that the man had two brain cells, because it takes one to be lost, and one to collide with it and have a thought. *Pardon if I've slaughtered it at all. If I have, who the Hell cares besides my uncle? He'll come in, correct it (humorously I might add) in a comment, and we'll all be far better off and no further along than prior anyways having read his brilliant comment >_>!*

My father always insisted, "I've got at least two brain cells... one got lost, and the other got lost looking for it." It took me until yesterday to find a parallel in film (albeit not perfect, but good enough). Anyone not familiar with Star Wars (damn you chumps!) need only know of the aforementioned attack on Luke after he wandered off to investigate what he thought was a meteor, when he was attacked. Han Solo abandoned his departure of the island in hopes to pay off his debt, to go search for Luke. Luke had escaped from the Wampa's cave with his Jedi Mind Trick, and ventured out into a blizzard, collapsing. Han finds Luke half-conscious, and rescues him... but is now lost himself. The trip back would be far too dangerous, they must wait for a pilot to find and pick them up the following morning.

Now I'm not suggesting one of my father's two brain-cells were attacked by a Wampa and lost in a blizzard, while the other is knight in bad-ass-vest Han Solo... but perhaps my father's able to do Jedi Mind Tricks (since his focus is very limited due to the lack of other brain cells) like that idiot Luke Skywalker.

Here's hoping I never have to see my father in ballerina pants, cowboy boots, and a Gi >_>.

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

Mock Royal Rumble 2017

I do not have any insider knowledge about surprise entrants into the Royal Rumble. As of me writing this, I believe there are only 22 confirmed participants for the Rumble. I also do not have any insider information about the order of the entrants, or the winner. I am just putting together a mock I think makes sense + what I would personally like to see accomplished in the match. 1. Sami Zayn - Zayn will be the Iron Man in this year's Rumble, building onto his Daniel Bryan-esque push of late with Stephanie making his life more difficult than it has to be for no apparent reason. 2. Chris Jericho - Iron Man #2. I expect both of these guys to go the distance in this year's Rumble, and Jericho's as good as any for spurts of offense in a long match. 3. Big E - We have to add some size early to immediately slow down Zayn & Jericho. In recent years, the first 10 spots in the Rumble have entered and been eliminated quickly, and we haven't seen the ring fill up unt

Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016

Before we begin, these are strictly my opinion for what entertains me. I would love to hear anyone's opinion on my list, along with what their list is for the 2016 calendar year. I am not focusing strictly on the WWE, and this list will not be strictly singles matches. I also have not watched every match from every company, so if I'm missing something you believe is clear cut, there may be a chance that I did not see the match. Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016 2016 was a very incredible year for professional wrestling, in mainstream promotions like WWE and New Japan Pro Wrestling, to independent promotions like EVOLVE and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. British professional wrestling promotions Revolution Pro Wrestling and newly formed What Culture Pro Wrestling have been a refreshing spark in the European scene and have since seen prominence in WWE's Cruiserweight Classic (CWC) and upcoming United Kingdom Championship Tournament. See the list after the break.
