Ophidian’s Top 5 Movies You Watch with Your Girlfriend

22 May


I’ve been out of the movie blogging game recently rehabbing my leg for a big match thats about to happen. If you didn’t know, on June 2nd live on iPPV, I’m killing Amasis like Michael Bay kills childhood memories. When I’m done that, I’m stuffing his corpse in a sarcophagus. That’s right. I’m rehabbing my bum knee to put a Pharaoh in a sarcophagus live on iPPV. It’s just another Sunday afternoon at the office for me. Now that I’m done training in 100 times the gravity of Earth, I’m taking a break to bring you this new list entitled “Top 5 Movies You Watch with Your Girlfriend.”  Continue reading

7 May


This week on the podcast we don’t actually have a name for but keep posting anyways: Robert Newsome recaps events of the most recent show he attended in Porterdale, GA, Danielle got some first-hand confirmation from Delirious, and then the podcast quite literately falls apart at the mention of Nailz.

Mandible Claw Podcastravaganza Day 5: When Life Hands You Lemons, Make Lemonade on a Podcast

3 May

Not the Mounties

The scheduled guest for today’s podcast couldn’t make it, so hey! Check these other fun podcasts out!

I guested on Tom Holzerman’s Wrestling Podcast: Tweetbag Edition. We talk dream wrestler karaoke duet partners, dinosaurs, and why Chikara is the best (because you needed to he me say that again).

On What a Maneuver!, I talked about January 27th, 1997 editions of Raw and Nitro with Joe and Eric (super rad dudes!). WCW is strange and confusing, and I talk about the Quebecers for basically ever.

I had a great time recording both of these, so give them a listen, show Tom, Eric, and Joe some love, and get that Kickstarter going for The Best of WCW’s Roadblock DVD.
