Winter Vacation in London!!!

I haven't blogged in a while, and didn't yesterday.

I'm safe and sound here in London (or, Wimbledon to be exact). The flight (British Airways) was a long, agonizing journey. Walking through the terminal to board the plane, some lady decided she was just going to sneeze germs all over the place and pocketed her hands to do so like it was some sort of compulsive disorder. I immediately felt my immune system going to work to fight her damn germs. She sneezed multiple times on the plane as well. I was beside a lady on the plane who sang the entire way. Oddly enough, she had a very beautiful voice, but there's only so many songs in a row I can listen to by a single person before I go nuts... not to mention we took off at 10:30pm EST and landed at 10:30am local time at Heathrow... so it wasn't that joyful hearing singing all night when I intended to get some sleep. Speaking of sleep, there's absolutely no way imaginable to get comfortable in British Airways Economy to do so. As comfy as the actual flight was (hardly any turbulence), the seats are extremely uncomfortable. No leg room for someone under 6'0, and I'm 6'5 on my best days. No way you can rest upright and sleep without slumping over into the disaster position and scaring the fuck out of the entire population of the plane. Turning to the side doesn't work unless you intend to snuggle with your neighbor, who (not the singing lady, another lady) ironically looked a little like me. Before landing, one of the passengers "took ill" and needed medical attention upon landing, so we weren't allowed to exit the plane until paramedics got on and even then, it was difficult to get out.

I also, for the life of me, cannot figure out why when deboarding a plane, the flight crew doesn't make you do it row by row rather than everyone jump up at once and create a jam.

Anyways, I'm here in my studio relaxed after hitting the pub last night and finally getting some sleep after only 5 hours tops Saturday and Sunday night, and had an amazing Christmas with my lady today.

Hopefully I'll be keeping you all posted over the next 5 weeks.

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.
