The Struggles of a Pro-Wrestling Fan

**The original post was posted on http://themotleyexperience.wordpress.com/ (shameless self-promotion, I know).** I’d like to take some time to make my first real blog post about something I am truly passionate about. This something is pro-wrestling. Many of you will see the title of this post and simply scroll on. I can’t blame you. Pro-wrestling has a horrible […]

In 2012, Will We Go To The Movies?

2012 is on the horizon. Are we going to go see movies then? Ben Fritz and Amy Kaufman of the Los Angeles Times reported that this past year audiences barely went out to the movies. Quantitatively, to the tune of a 25% decrease in “multiples,” industry speak for “the final box-office take compared to a […]

2012 in Video Games Part I: The PSVita

Wow. What a great fucking year for gaming! Starting this decade on the right foot, 2011 brought some incredible video games to the table that will surely join in the category of gaming legends. Instead of speaking about the past year, however, I’m more interested in looking ahead to 2012, and what classics it may […]

Twinkle, Twinkle: The Allure and Paradox of “Superstars”

Pumbaa: Hey, Timon, ever wonder what those sparkly dots are up there? Timon: Pumbaa, I don’t wonder; I know. Pumbaa: Oh. What are they? Timon: They’re fireflies. Fireflies that, uh… got stuck up on that big bluish-black thing. Pumbaa: Oh, gee. I always thought they were balls of gas burning billions of miles away. Timon: […]

“Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters” Website Launched, Let The Hype Begin!

Earlier this week the official website for the 2012 Super Sentai, Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters, launched and it dropped a slew of new info about the show. Let the hype officially begin! And no, I can’t think of any good Ghostbusters jokes, or anything relating to shredding scripts.

WWE’s “It Begins” 2012: “It” Doesn’t Matter

For six weeks the WWE has posted cryptic videos promoting “the end of the beginning” which is to take place on January 2, 2012. Sports journalists and wrestling fans alike have been tossing out ideas, and while there is a myriad of potential identities just as to who the promos are behind, personalities whom you […]

What’s the Big Deal About My Small Boobs?

I am a girl who has sought out to find the answer as to why men find boobs so intriguing.

How Young is Too Young to Write a Love Song?

Full disclosure: I’m watching Disney Channel as I type this. I was searching for inspiration on what to write, and it showed up wearing cartoon-mouse ears. Currently playing is some program (of which I don’t know the name) that appears to be attempting to be Saturday Night Live for kids. So, pretty much, a lame […]

“Put A Bird On Anything And Call It Art” Portlandia On Netflix, My Day Was Booked

As 2011 comes to a close a handful of new television series came and went. Quite literally too, in the case of The Playboy Club. One show that stood out with only a few episodes was IFC’s Portlandia, starring Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein. I happened to come across the show completely by accident. I […]

A Trip Down Memory Lane: What Was Your First Screenname?

When AOL was the new “it” thing, I was in the second grade. Little did I know that my life would become so dependent on one of these machines when I sat down across the computer monitor for the first time. My mom and my brother sat beside me, informing me of where and what […]

Move Along

Due to the fact that my right arm is a touch sore from overuse, (no not from that ya filthy minded fool) I’m going to put down my Wii Remote and speak what’s on my mind. Motion controls. Why exactly is the gaming industry going down this road now? Is it worth it? Haven’t we […]

See, That Ain’t Even Right: Insulting Commercials

Something I never noticed until this year is how strange commercials actually are. Being a child of the 1990’s, I often felt at ease or “at home” when I watched a commercial for a popular consumer product, a symptom of the Reagan administration for sure. Watching a Pepsi or Burger King ad meant I was […]

Non-Christmas Movies, On Christmas?

The holidays are just around the corner, and with that comes the onslaught of Christmas specials and marathons airing on the magic box we call television. Everyone seems to have that one or seven Christmas movies they always watch at this time of year. You’ll hear lists containing the classics, like Miracle on 34th, Home […]
