Swimming With Piranhas By Howard Brody

Swimming With Piranhas - Howard Brody

This review has been a long time coming. Partially because it took me forever and a day to finish the book. Swimming with Piranhas: Surviving the Politics of Professional Wrestling was written by former president of the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) Howard Brody. In it, he gives a first hand account of how he managed to navigate the political backroom dealings that plague the world of professional wrestling. He goes into (with great… sometimes too great) … Continue reading

WWE Encyclopedia Updated & Expanded

WWE Encyclopedia (2012)

To say I’m behind on my blog here would be an understatement. I just went through and cleaned up my drafts. (IE, removed stuff that I’d started and won’t bother finishing because it’s no longer topical or relevant). I’m still left with over 50 drafts. And that DOESN’T include at least a dozen or so that I know are coming but I’ve not officially started. All of that said, I figured tonight is as good … Continue reading

The Belligerent Book of Movie Quotes

The Belligerent Book Of Movie Quotes

It’s been quite some time since I’ve done a book review. That’s not to say I haven’t been reading because I have… I’ve just been terrible about getting my reviews done. This one should be short and sweet. The Belligerent Book of Movie Quotes is “written” by Danny Marianino. I have written in quotes because as the title of the book suggests, this is a collection of movie quotes so Mr. Marianino didn’t actually pen them…. … Continue reading

50 Shades Of Boredom – Fifty Shades Of Grey Review

Fifty Shades Of Grey

Back in 2011, E. L. James released the first book in her Fifty Shades Trilogy known simply as Fifty Shades Of Grey.  I ran across an article in TIME the other day talking about how people are already boycotting the upcoming Fifty Shades movie that’s set to premier this weekend and it reminded me that I’d read this and never posted a review here on the site. SPOILER ALERT: I’m going speak openly about the “plot” … Continue reading

Powered On (2012) – Sarah Churman Talks Sounds Vs. Noise

Powered On (2012)

I first learned of Sarah Churman when I watched a YouTube video of her hearing for the first time.  Sarah was born with a condition where the hair in her inner ear doesn’t form.  This hair (I’ve come to find out) is what transmits the sound which allows us to hear.  Without it, Sarah was essentially deaf. Powered On is the amazing, true story of Sarah’s transformation from a life of silence into a new … Continue reading

Lexa James – Sexcapades & Champagne

Sexcapades & Champagne (2012)

I first learned of Lexa James on Twitter.  One of her tweets showed up in my timeline, retweeted by someone else.  What can I say… I’m a typical male, so when you see an account called @hotttasian float through your timeline you click on it… at least to see what it is. I was happy to find that Lexa wasn’t just one of those fake accounts selling sex or pretending to be something that they … Continue reading

Action Lab Entertainment Presents: Double Jumpers

Double Jumpers #1 By Action Lab Entertainment

I’m a geek.  A comic book nerd.  I’m an 80’s movie quoting, hair metal loving dork.  I have been for as long as I can remember.  Unfortunately, as life has gotten in the way of my wasted youth, one of the things that has fallen by the wayside for a variety of reasons has been reading comic books.  Luckily, these days, there are a variety of ways for me to “keep up” with my old … Continue reading

Chad Brody Presents: The Shocker

The Shocker: Two In The Pink One In The Stink

I’ll steal a quote from the author of this book to start off: “This book contains material that may be considered crude and vulgar.  The humor, while immature, might be better left for adults.  If you don’t like jokes, don’t read this book.” I’d say it’s safe to say the same thing about this review.  Still here?  Onward… It’s a long story how I came about this particular “novel” but it goes something like this. … Continue reading

The Walking Dead Compendium One – Comics On TV

The Walking Dead - Compendium One

There’s been quite a few shows and movies about zombies over the years but I have to say there have been none better than The Walking Dead which recently wrapped its first season on AMC.  If you haven’t seen it I’d highly recommend you check it out.  Even though it’s on TV, it’s not for the squeamish or faint of heart.  You’ve been warned.  And while it’s a tremendous show it pales in comparison to … Continue reading

Sammy Hagar Gets Uncensored In RED

RED: My Uncensored Life In Rock by Sammy Hagar (2011)

I’ll start this off by saying Van Halen is probably my favorite band of all time.  I’ll follow that up by saying that I’m one of the rare few that thinks Van Halen was a FAR superior band with Sammy Hagar in it than when David Lee Roth was the front man.  With that housekeeping out of the way… No pun intended, but this book rocks. RED: My Uncensored Life In Rock is just that… uncensored.  … Continue reading
