‘Survivor’ Summer Book Club – ‘Survivor: Vanuatu’ Episode 5

June 27, 2012

My Big Question: Back in 2008, Jeff Probst and I did a video segment called the “‘Survivor’ Question of the Week” where we’d debate the merits of a specific topic. One of those topics was, “Who was the least deserving winner in ‘Survivor’ history.” I chose Chris Daugherty because I felt like he was lucky that the female alliance fell apart when it did and I didn’t like how he misled people like Eliza before voting them out. The lying struck me as very unnecessary.

However, that was based on a four-year-old season I had watched before yapping about “Survivor” was my actual job. So for this rewatch, my main goal is to critique Chris’s performance to see if he deserved my worst-ever ranking.

And with that, let’s (as Twila would say) kick it…

Four Cheap and Effective Ways to Improve Pro Wrestling

June 12, 2012

The WWE has found itself in a bit of a rut recently. Injuries and suspensions have left their roster depleted, storylines and characters aren’t quite popping like they used to, and nobody on the undercard seems prepared to grab the reigns and make a name for themselves. And worst of all, these problems are sure to become more pronounced when Raw moves to a permanent three-hour format.

Now while most proposed solutions tend to delve into specifics (“Turn Cena!” “Push Ziggler!”), I’m more interested in the little things the creative team can be doing to help turn the ship around…

Why Sharing a Bed with Me Is Probably the Worst

June 5, 2012

Here’s a fun fact about me; I’m the world’s worst sleeper. My roommates and girlfriends have all told stories about me snoring, talking, singing, speaking languages I don’t speak when I’m awake…

Weird.

Anywho, the latest bit of mid-evening entertainment happened last night at four in the morning when I was convinced that my foot was vibrating in the same way a phone would vibrate. I did what any normal person would do; I tried to answer it. As you’d imagine, not being flexible enough to pull my foot up to my face proved to be quite frustrating.

Even odder, I remember not being so annoyed that my foot was now a phone, but that someone would call me at that outrageous hour.

Even More Whatnot…
