Slater’s Signature Finisher: Was Rock v. Cena Really Once in a Lifetime?

!rock-cena-642-1

I have written about professional wrestling in various online forms since roughly 2005 or so. I have never received so much attention and excitement from people leaving comments than when I initially wrote about The Rock’s return to WWE in February 2011. (more…)

I’m sorry this is late, and that many of these entries are short. That awful performance the Paper Planes has sucked the fanaticism for football out of me temporarily. (more…)

And because I hate that stupid LA Tech/SJSU game (even if they are both 9-2), I’m also picking WVU to lose to Iowa State and UVA to beat Virginia Tech on the road. Also Wisconsin beats Penn State, cause I’m feeling generous.

Better In The Dark – Episode #140: The Swave Riddle Of The Purple Curse (Guest: Kelen “B Hyphen” Conley)

BITD-140-Photo

The Boys Outta Brooklyn once more reunite with their Musical Director, Kelen ‘B Hyphen’ Conley to examine the very peculiar, very short movie career of one Anthony Rodgers Nelson, a.k.a. Prince! From the seminal 80′s musical opus Purple Rain to the incomprehensibly bad Grafitti Bridge (a film one of us says is the worst film he’s ever seen!), the Boys Outta Brooklyn look at it all. Expect more Morris Day love than one podcast can bear, more catch-phrases than any other episode of BiTD and…the birth of The Swave! You know we will die for you, so get to clicking!
