I was watching the wrestling docuseries, “Dark Side of the Ring” all week and this one episode about the mysterious death of Bruiser Brody caught my attention. Legendary wrestler named Bruiser Brody was killed during an argument with another wrestler named Jose Gonzalez in the locker room. Yes, Jose was arrested and there was a trial for it but Jose was acquitted ’cause he claimed it was “self defense”. Bruiser and Jose was in the locker having a screaming match and Jose stabbed Bruiser. Bruiser died later. Another wrestler named Tony Atlas claims he witnessed the whole thing but didn’t testify in the trial ’cause the subpoenas came late in the mail. The trial was already over before then.
Jose defended himself and claimed “self defense” but it’s still not known whether or not it was really murder or self defense. The knife was never recovered and Jose is still out there living his life.
My opinion??? I think Bruiser was definitely murdered in cold blood and it was definitely pure hatred for sure ’cause Jose always hated Bruiser. Jose knew that he would have never been able to harm Bruiser if he didn’t have a knife on him ’cause he knew that Bruiser was a tough dude. If Jose didn’t have a knife then things would have turned out differently and it would have been Jose being rolled out on a gurney by paramedics instead. Why would Jose have a knife on him?
I think Jose got away with murder for sure and did the perfect murder. No doubt about it.
Bruiser never got his justice sadly and it was a terrible trial. Doesn’t matter how long ago it was… Bruiser still needs his justice and his killing still needs to be solved which never did. Jose needs to be locked up and there needs to be another trial somehow.
Last night on FB, I watched the “Rocky” online party with Sylvester Stallone the man himself on FB. Sly Stallone was live online last night giving live commentary as he watches the first Rocky movie with the internet.
Since I’m such a huge Sly Stallone and Rocky fan myself, I just had to get on the MGM studios facebook page so I can watch it myself. Watch parties online are pretty interesting, though… that was my first watch party… watching a movie online while an actor watches it himself.
Throughout the first “Rocky” movie which came out in 1976, Sly just gave all kinds of behind the scenes insight throughout the film. I was impressed with Sly… he did a real good job and his insight about the movie was interesting. I’ve seen the first “Rocky” 100’s of times since it’s one of my favorite movies ever and after all these years I’ve seen the film so many times, there were so many new things that I learned about the film that I didn’t know about yet thanks for Sly’s commentary on it.
Sly admitted on the Watch Party that he doesn’t watch his own movies that much… so him watching his own movie was interesting too. As Sly was watching “Rocky” it was interesting watching his reaction to certain scenes especially the Rocky and Adrian love making scene in Rocky’s apartment. As you watch Sly watching his own movie and talking about it, you can tell he loves the Rocky character so much.
In this lockdown and during these hard times, even Sly himself is bored to death and he’s doing whatever to continue to entertain his fanbase. Sly is an interesting guy and he’s a very intelligent man when it comes to movie making. I’m hoping he does watch parties for all the other Rocky films and the two Creed films as well… just maybe, we’ll wait and see.
I’m glad I watched the “Rocky” watch party and hope Sly has more of them.
Swimming in the ocean may look fun but at the same time can be very dangerous. Former WWE star Shad Gaspard known as one of the members of tag team, Cryme Tyme turned out missing in the ocean after a rip current took him in. Shad was out swimming with his son and both of them were in trouble… there was a life guard out there to rescue both of them but the life guard could only rescue the son. That’s ’cause Shad pushed his son to the lifeguard and told the lifeguard to save him. Then suddenly Shad disappeared into the currents.
This is very sad… while it may be a miracle and we could be lucky enough that Shad may have survived but it is pretty likely he drowned and is at the bottom of the ocean somewhere. It’s very likely that he didn’t survive and is probably dead. Whether he is alive or dead, though, hope they find him either way.
In reality, though… Shad Gaspard is a hero in all this ’cause he sacrificed himself to save his son if you think about it. I think he’s one of those people who’ll do anything to save the ones he loved when they are in danger. There was no way he was going to leave his son to die in the currents and it looks like Shad did that to himself since there was nothing else he could do ’cause the currents were too strong. He wanted his son to live and he didn’t care whether or not he lived or died. Think about it, right? Shad knew that the lifeguard could only save his son and not him.
How would someone vanish without a trace after strong currents take that person? Well currents go so strong and so fast that I’m sure Shad’s body was pulled way out into the ocean and if they couldn’t find him, he may have been eaten by underwater animals like sharks… don’t mean to sound stupid but really. Either that or Shad’s body was caught under large rocks.
Tragic story, though and my heart goes out to Shad’s family & friends.
As promised, I will make my David Bowie live stream tribute show happen real soon. Just rehearsing the songs really hard still ’cause I want to take my time and do them good so I can make I do them justice. I don’t want to mess up lyrics and guitar parts while performing live-stream so that’s why I gotta give them some more time to practice my Bowie set.
I realized that I actually have 12 Bowie songs written on the setlist so it’s gonna be a 12 song set for the Bowie tribute. I already gave a few songs away of what I’m planning to do like “Blackstar” and “Starman” but that’s all I’ll name for now. I will be doing his greatest hits to some obscure Bowie songs no one knows about.
While I’m working on these songs and practicing, I’m really blown away at how much of a musical genius he really was. Remember, he was more than just a great singer. He was also a great guitar player and a great lyricist as well. I think Bowie’s lyrics were pretty awesome, though. As you listen to Bowie’s music, you can easily tell that he came up with all these songs directly from his head… he definitely knew what he wanted out of his songs. He definitely had a good ear. He made the type of music he wanted to make.
Bowie is one of those music artists that you never get tired of listening to. Yeah, Bowie may have been a liberal guy and he was probably a Democrat voter but who cares… his music was still beautiful stuff.
Working on these Bowie covers is inspiring me to get back into songwriting again myself.
On the “Ask Eric Anything” for the 83 Weeks w/ Eric Bischoff podcast show, I submitted a question to them on twitter asking what his thoughts are about the long rumored “Macho Man” Randy Savage and Stephanie McMahon past romantic relationship that won’t die.
Well surprisingly enough, they took the question and Eric answered. It’s not much of an answer, though. Eric just said that he “thinks nothing” of that rumor and said it is childish of people to even think or talk about that rumor. He also said he wouldn’t “stoop” so low to talk about it. He kind of slammed me for sending in a question like that, hahaha so it definitely sounded like Eric didn’t like being asked that question but he briefly answered it anyways.
If you’re curious to hear it yourself, give it a listen the “Ask Anything” and he answers my question toward the end of the podcast episode.
Kind of a disappointing response to me, honestly ’cause I was hoping for an entertaining and honest response but instead I seem to have pissed him off a bit.
That’s okay, though ’cause it was just a question since it was “Ask him anything”, ya know? I’m just glad they took the question, though and I didn’t think they would.
I understand why they don’t want to talk about a hard topic like that ’cause to me it sounds like they are scared of lawsuits and things like that. “Ask Anything” is all about asking hard questions and that’s the name of the game.
Just thought I would show this to you all.
So today, I was trying to figure out all this “live stream” stuff out since I never done it before. After a little investigation and playing around, I found that I couldn’t go on FB livestream ’cause I needed to install the Chrome Beta version of Chrome and so that’s what I did. I upgraded Google Chrome to Beta earlier today and Livestream there seems to be working fine.
I really want to use my hand held JVC Everio camera that I bought years ago but I need a camera connection converter box in order for me to use my Everio camera for live streaming, though. I’ll order one of those sometime in the future but for now, I’m just gonna use the built in webcam on this computer which seems to work fine.
Messing around with this live stream and preparing for it… I tested out my Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 audio interface so I can live stream the mic and guitar and that seems to work perfectly fine as well. You’re gonna really hear me really good with the microphone and guitar plugged in.
I’ve been rehearsing these ten David Bowie songs for my upcoming Bowie tribute that I’m dying to do and the songs are coming along really well. I think I’ll be able to nail them good enough and do ’em justice like I’ve been promising. If my David Bowie tribute show gets enough views, if it actually gets some views and enough people likes it… I’ll end up doing another Bowie tribute… do a part II and play 10 different songs in the set. For this tribute though, I got a good set planned and I think you’ll all really like it. I’ve been working on these songs ’cause I want to do ’em good and promise I won’t disappoint.
I’ve been trying to figure out ways to livestream on multiple social media platforms at once… be able to livestream on FB, Instagram and youtube but it’s all a real hassle and a pain in the ass so I’m not gonna do it. So what I’m gonna do is play my livestream tribute to Bowie on FB first and then bring the tribute show to Instagram and Youtube after. I’ll upload separate songs to IG and youtube.
Can’t wait to do this and I may go live for this first time this weekend. We’ll see.
Some of you may wonder what TV show I am watching during this country lockdown… well I’m currently watching “The Sopranos” on Hulu. HBO just unlocked some of their stuff for free, a bunch of their shows and some movies… not all of them just some of them. So since the Sopranos is for free on Hulu for now, I figure I would watch this one.
I’ve already seen the first 5 seasons in the past when I used to subscribe to HBO NOW for a little while but then I stopped subscribing and only watched the first 5 seasons. Now that the show is for free on HULU and also HBO NOW, I thought I would re-start the show from the beginning as a refresher and I still remember every single episode. That’s okay ’cause this is one show that is worth watching repeatedly ’cause it’s that damn good.
I think HBO Unlocked is gonna be gone sometime this week so I probably won’t get to finish the whole show in time. I’ve never seen the 6th season yet which is the final season of the show which I need to get to.
I’ll probably watch season 4 this week and if Hulu locks HBO back up, I’ll find other ways to watch seasons 5 & 6. I’m probably gonna end up buying the Sopranos BluRay box set as pictured above which is gonna be $90 on amazon and I would like to own that for my BluRay collection. It’s definitely the best show on television… entertaining as hell and funny too ’cause it’s a comedy as well, it’s not just a crime drama.
What show will I watch after this? I’m thinking of giving “Tiger King” a shot since everyone’s talking about it and I’ll check it out for myself. I was meaning to get to that show too as it’s on my watchlist on Netflix.
