Who Am I? Who Are You?

I’ve blogged about introspection before. I take a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down. I’m an optimist; I find a way to make things look good. My glass is always half-full. But who am I?


The unintended genius of that question was asked brilliantly in the movie Anger Management… and I must give credit where it’s due. @JohnSupernova brought this subject up before me, but it resonates… he knows from our early discussions that I, as does he, stake a lot of importance on introspection. And he knows, as I do, that inquiring of someone “I just want to know who you are” is one of the most difficult questions to answer. Your average person won’t answer that properly. Your most consciously aware probably wouldn’t be able to answer that properly. I’ve struggled to answer that properly, but I believe I’ve got the answer, finally.

Who I am? I am. I am Sean Bishop.

I know that sounds like a smartass comment, but it goes deeper than that. Sean Bishop is who I am. I am all that encompasses Sean Bishop. Delve into my blog a little bit, and you’ll see clearly precisely who I am.

I’m good with words. I’m most comfortable in my life when I’m reading and/or writing. I’m positive I was born several centuries too late for my professional interests, and a couple decades too soon for my progressive style of writing. We’re on the cusp of being allowed to do exactly what I want to do with writing, but it’s too soon for me to unleash the style I’m most interested in exploring. But that doesn’t mean I won’t flirt with the other side of this invisible line placed before me.

I’m one of those people who want to change the world, but my strengths aren’t in anything other than words. The aforementioned @JohnSupernova told me recently that I’d be a “net preacher” and he’s 100% correct. But sometimes, a voice is needed in order to inspire those who can actually take the ideas from paper (or monitor in this case) and build the wheel to set the scheme in motion.

I’m not the kind of person best suited to build a library, but I’m the kind of person who can draw the design and fill that library with script. I’m good with words, and I love using them. I’m good with tools, but I know I’m not the best suited to use them. While I try to figure out the next steps on Don’t Laugh, People and in my life, I want my words to carry with them the power to inspire people, to promote working together for the good of humanity, not separatism.

So who am I? I’m Sean Bishop. If you want to know who I am in a more natural element, pay me a visit @Sean_Bishop. My goal is to advance my blog, which relies not only on me, but on my ability to relate to you. So I just want to know who you are…

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.
