Learning is a wonderful thing that I refuse to take for granted. Practically everyday we have a chance to learn some new fact, story, skill, and various other things everyday. This past week, I learned of the certain rules that WWE, WrestleCade, ROH and several promotions headed to New Orleans for the week of WrestleMania 34 have to abide by. This information is all thanks to an interview from Post Wrestling’s John Pollock with Russell Naquin of the Louisiana Boxing and Wrestling Commission.

When a Public Library in Wisconsin hosts a Pro Wrestling Show…

Those of use who have attended professional wrestling events are accustomed to them being hosted in from football stadiums, basketball/hockey arenas and local gymnasiums.  I for one have attended wrestling shows in parking lots, carnivals/fairs, VFW halls, stage theaters, night clubsand bar/grill restaurants, and these locations are very creative from a logistical point-of-view. It really rings true that pro wrestling can really work anywhere, and it seems that the Milwaukee Public Library are believers (or BO-Lievers) in that philosophy, too.

BitSummit, Japan’s Independent Gaming Expo

This past weekend was the fourth-annual BitSummit, an exposition dedicated to promoting the Japanese independent development scene. The expo was created by James Mielke, Q Games founder Dylan Cuthbert, and others. Unlike the E3 and more akin to PAX and MAGFest, BitSummit is open to the public and features panels with game industry luminaries, live musical performances, and live demos from Japanese and western independent game developers. It also serves as a place for Japanese and western developers to meet up, make contacts, and do their share to promote the Japanese game development scene.

‘Crossy Road’ is ‘Frogger’ in First-Person; Yes, It’s Stressful…

Let me just say that the endless traffic-hopper Crossy Road is a delightful, yet very frustrating video game. Basically, it switches the perspective from top-down (like in Frogger) to first-person, but the result is a gaming recipe for stress panic episodes.  Despite this, the game’s charming blocky graphics with colorful characters makes it pretty endearing. Plus, YouTube filmmaker Andy Front has given the game a try, and he’s giving us … Continue reading ‘Crossy Road’ is ‘Frogger’ in First-Person; Yes, It’s Stressful…

Remembering Smoky Mountain Wrestling…

Smoky Mountain Wrestling was an independent professional wrestling promotion founded and run by Jim Cornette, was based in Knoxville, Tennessee with its offices in Morristown, TN, and held events in the Appalachian area of the United States from October 1991 to December 1995.  Cornette formed the promotion after he left World Championship Wrestling along with Stan Lane, Tim Horner and Sandy Scott, with financial backing from music producer Rick Rubin, co-founder of Def Jam Records. The first events and TV tapings were held in October and November 1991 while the matches from these taped shows were first shown on television in February 1992.
