"The Masterpiece" Chris Masters VS Ian Rotten

This would depend on what type of match they had.  If it was more of a fight, Ian Rotten would deflate Chris Masters' gassed-up pectorals with the touch of his glass-encrusted taped fist.  But since the first round has no special stips whatsoever, Masters has to walk away from this one the winner.  I don't see Rotten submitting to the Master Lock necessarily, but I do see him doing something dumb to get himself disqualified.  7:36 for the match time.  (Also, while looking for his picture, I found out Ian Rotten was recently diagnosed with gastric stomach cancer.  He says they caught it early, but yo.  Wish you a speedy recovery, homes.)


The Maestro VS Eddie Edwards

Being Gorgeous George's descendant did The Maestro no good in WCW, and it will earn him no slack against one of my favorite active wrestlers today.  Eddie Edwards in 4:15.


"Bullet" Bob Armstrong VS Savio Vega

The statistic that tips the scales in this coinflip of a matchup is that Savio Vega gave "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and The Rock their first singles match losses in the WWF, not to mention bested Yokozuna at some point after that mattered, so there ya go.  A spirited 10 to 12 minute contest with Savio coming out on top.


Danny Doring VS The Iron Sheik

Skeik-y Baby will make Doring humble with the camel clutch around the 6 min. mark.


"Rugged" Ronnie Garvin VS Danny Basham

Garvin is a former NWA Heavyweight Champion, and Danny Basham is from a mid-00's tag team that is mostly forgotten (as are all tag teams from that time).  Garvin goes over with a Knockout Right in 3:57.


Joey Abs VS Steve Simpson

Look, I know you haven't heard of Steve Simpson, but he was built like Kerry Von Erich, had a wrestling style not unlike a poor man's "Superfly" Jimmy Snukka, and he wasn't a member of The Mean Street Posse, unlike poor Joey Abs.  The South African phenom in 2:51.


Zeus VS Brad Maddox

This pairing made me giggle until I couldn't breathe.  The bad guy from "No Holds Barred" against the current General Manager of Monday Night Raw.  Maddox would be smart enough to wear dark pants for when he inevitably pisses himself after his three or four attempts at punches have no effect on Mr. Lister, and the Mighty Zeus will yell, pound his chest, then walk forward kind of like an action figure who doesn't have knees as the GM high tails it outta there and loses by countout.


Dr. Jerry Graham VS "Scrap Iron" Adam Pearce

This one is interesting.  "Scrap Iron" is an old school wrestler in a new school world, winning the NWA World Championship five times in a time period when most people don't know that there's still an NWA.  Dr. Jerry Graham is old school, starting in the 1950's and giving "Superstar" Billy Graham and the other Graham brothers their names (ironically, none of them, even Jerry, were named Graham).  Adam Pearce seems to have the more impressive resume, however, and though this would be a hard-fought battle, "Scrap Iron" would lay the Dr. out with the Rack Bomb at around 11:20.

"The Masterpiece" Chris Masters defeats Ian Rotten

WHAT THE HELL IS A BLOG? - iTunes Music Reviews, April 2018

Being that it's been more than a year since I've attempted one of these and iTunes is gonna stop selling mp3's next year, this is probably my next to last chance to do this sort of thing.  I started doing hot take reviews of albums based off nothing but 30 second iTunes previews in 2007, and if I'd been smart, I'd've transitioned to YouTube with them in about 2009.  I didn't, so here we are.  If reading a slightly older gentleman trying to temper his apathy and vexation at modern pop music and give it a fair shake (or trying to be funny when shitting on things that he can't resist shitting on) is your jam, step up to the dance floor!

Scoring system goes from 0 stars (sometimes negative if it goes the extra mile of horrible) to five stars (which has happened three times in 11 years of doing this, and I'd take every one of them back because that's the thing with hot takes).  Here we go!

MUSIC REVIEWS: Sophie, Hannah Diamond, The Brash Menagerie, Beach House & MC Lars

Hey, y'all.  Managed to cobble together some more opinions on the musics and such.  Let's see what listening to albums has done to my brain-to-word connectivity this week!

Ratings are like this:
0 Stars: Utter Shit
* Star: Had at least one redeeming thing about it, but definitely not my thing
** Stars: Meh.  Maybe a thing or two I liked, but definitely coulda been worse.
***: A Good Album.
****: A Great Album.
*****: Absolutely fucking incredible.  (Almost impossible to achieve.)

Sophie "Oil Of Every Pear's Un-Insides" *** and 1/4

Starts with a relaxing, reassuring song "It's Okay To Cry", which gets jarring out of nowhere at the end.  Which seemed needless, but then "Ponyboy" slams into the picture and I see what she was doing there: Dialating your sphincter for the unholy beating your asshole is about to endure.

This album is jagged; it's harsh; it's repellent; it's brutal; but most importantly: it's interesting.  It's…

Vinnie Paul Retrospective Part I: The 80's

Last month the world lost Vinnie Paul, the drummer from Pantera, Damageplan, Rebel Meets Rebel and Hellyeah.  I grew up listening the shit out of Pantera, so this one hit me.  It also made me a bit conflicted, since Pantera is on an ever-growing list of artists I don't listen to anymore for...reasons.  In this case, because of the actions of their singer Phil Anselmo, revealing himself to be a white supremacist piece of shit (which we probably should have seen coming, to be honest).

Point is, I haven't listened to anything with Anselmo on it for two and a half years now.  I keep his catalogue buried next to the dead legacies of Ted Nugent, Kanye West, Charlie Daniels and (worst of all) Lostprophets.  But Pantera has always felt...different.  On one hand, you could make the case that you shouldn't throw the whole band under the bus because the singer was a dick, but when the lyrics butt up against some of the reasons you stopped kind of makes it hard.  But si…
