The theme for this evening: random.

Someone mentioned wrestling earlier and it got me thinking of how much I used to watch it. I don't think I could ever totally get back into now as everything seems to have changed. Wikipedia is an amazing resource for everything, but I like the detail included on the wrestling section.

Anyway, I thought I'd see what Bob Holly was up to. Anyone who knows me knows that Bob Holly and Vince McMahon were the best part of wrestling for me. I did some looking around, and found out that Bob has started up his own wrestling school, The Bob Holly Academy. Very cool, no?

Well, I did some looking at the site and stumbled upon the photo gallery. What should I see listed under "Fan Pictures" but my ugly mug! It's the same one that's on the photo gallery on this site, but still, I'm pretty shocked. Maybe I should give Bob a shout sometime and thank him for the photo and the autograph. In case you forgot, this is how it went down. Power to the people! ;)

How. In. The. Hell. Will. I. Get. This. Dissertation. Done. In. Time. ?.

Remember that Encyclopedia Britannica commercial from the 80s that had the annoying kid talking to the voice-over about how he was trying to do his book report? I just saw it again at X-Entertainment and it reminded me of one of the times I felt totally despicable.

When I was really young, I remember that we had several sets of encyclopedias at the house. Little did I know at the time that they could actually be USED for something, I begin going though each volume, using them to practice writing in cursive. You know, as you do...

When Mom saw this, she was suitably upset. Those things aren't cheap. Only looking back do I realize what I was doing was really cruel. Mom went through a lot to bring the three of us up, and I wasn't helping things by de-facing something she put her hard-earned money down on to help further our education.

Sorry, Mom. x

Sorry for the lack of posts. Not much going on but dissertation stuff. Hopefully when I settle down in Amsterdam I can do a bit more.

Anyway, just wanted to say... What the hell were the Backstreet Boys smoking when they made their video for their next single, "Just Want You To Know?" It consists of the the Boys dressed all 80s stylee, on their way to see faux-hair metal band SPHYNCTER. I kid you not. Then when they get there, it's actually the Boys performing as the band. So. Damn. Bizarre. But it works, oddly enough...
