......Would be an awesome name for a TV show/Movie/Book but it wouldn't be long and also both are gods among men! :P

Now that I got your attention here we go:

COMICS:

For a while now or a bit more I've found myself reading more DC than Marvel,DC has improved so much both story and artwise than Marvel,ever since Sinestro Corps I can't stop reading Green Lantern (which by the way I finally completed the whole Sniestro Corps Saga) and also Flash or almost anything by Geoff Johns (that fucker can spin a fucking yarn :D) also been hooked on Brightest Day since the begining and also Blackest Night (which I also managed to Collect all the trades and prelude trades) and also learning a lot about The Emotional Spectrum and the diffrent lantern corps adding some mythology to the history of one -in my opinion and many others- underated DC Character (same with Flash,Green Arrow,Captain Marvel [SHAZAM!] and yes even Aquaman) and it's been working like a charm,it's one of DC Comics' top sellers after Batman and Superman and also FINALLY getting the movie treatment (can't friggin wait).

The Flash is another DC title that I love reading currently and I recomend it,I never read much of Flash growing up,not even the Mark Waid run or Geoff Johns' Historic Run and it's a shame that I never did that but I can always pick up the trades (if any of you guys got any recomendations let me know)

I did say that I'm reading more DC than Marvel,mostly because I feel dissapointed with Marvel (except for 2 titles that I'm reading like Thunderstrike and Avengers: The Children's Crusade and also checking out the few good Marvel Annimated Movies and the new Disney XD Avengers Cartoon that kicks so much ass) and also can't wait for the Thor movie and Captain America Movie to come out) it's lacking in stories and sometimes artwork (though they have a few good artists but still not enough) and just going OVERBOARD with the "Big Events" (yeah I know DC's doing the same *shrugs*) it's ok to do them but like only once or twice a year tops,they should really concentrate on developing on other stuff instead of making a "Big Titanic Event" after another,I'm not saying to stop doing them completly..just ease up with them and not do them in a row.

Also been checking out ONI Press with Scott Pilgrim (the movie kicked ass and I loved the books and the game is made of win!!!!!) and a new title called Super Pro K.O by Jarrett Williams,which reminds me that I got to check on Borders if Vol 2. came out :) And now that we finished with the Comic Book news let's move on to:

WRESTLING:

I would be a fucking liar if I said that I try not to watch it anymore because it dosen't feel the same,I can never deny that I love Pro Wrestling,it's one of my many loves and the many things alongside comic books,animation and music that still brings me some joy when I watch it with close friends or watch it by myself on TV or Live,I can't say no to it even when the sport itself (yes it's still a sport to some of us) is going down in flames,we're marks for it now and forever,watching the breakout stars of the future in either Independent Wrestling or International Wrestling or even in WWE or TNA (I'll get to that in a few) or watching the grizzled vets that can still go and/or are literally running on fumes,Cheering the Goodies,Booing the Baddies,picking our faves both Face,Heel or Tweener or feeling disgusted with those that are there to make a quick buck just because they have hollywood connections and have no passion or even respect for the buissness and really don't give a shit about the true fans,the promotion that have put the machine on them and the people that came before them,always debating of what the company should do with the gimmick or angle or why when a cult favorite goes to the mainstream is watered down by having him Job to talentless hacks or not having an outlet for women to wrestle and not just be eye candy(nothing wrong with that at all) but they can do more than just being managers/valets ,they can also put on great matches (if trained properly unless if it's SHIMMER then there is no problem there since they CAN wrestle and put on awesome matches).

TNA has become a complete dissapointment in my eyes -and to some other fans' eyes- for a long time now,even worse since Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff have stepped foot into the company,even before that TNA had its ups and downs but still is a dissapointment,I can't even watch it anymore and won't again untill they get their shit together and smarten up like:

-Get rid of the Ex-WWE/WCW Rejects (not all of them because there are a few exceptions in that rule like Mr Anderson,Tara,Winter and Matt Morgan and maybe Pope) and really solidify your home grown talent,you don't need some of Vinny Mac's Sloppy Seconds to get over as company and as the alternative for WWE,Jesus Christ with a roster filled with AJ Styles,Samoa Joe,Kazarian,MCMG,Generation Me,Beer Money,HernandezMadison Rayne,Angelina Love,Sarita just to name a few and maybe hire some non WWE talent that could and/or need the TV exposure,TNA can maybe and just Maybe pull of of that Slump they've been under for years now.FUCK BRING BACK THE WORLD X CUP!!!!!! THAT WOULD GET ME WATCHING AGAIN!!!!!!!

-Kurt Angle is also another disapointment in TNA and it pains me to say it because I loved his work and now it's just so sad to watch him there floundering and just becoming a shell of his former self,it's like a roller coaster,it's fucking sad,then again it's my opinion...

-Need I stress this enough (if you know the words sing along) FIRE RUSSO!!!!!!  FIRE BISCHOFF!!!!!!  FIRE HOGAN!!!!!!!!!!!


But not all is negative because if you don't want to watch WWE or TNA or Neither there's always the Indies/Mexico/Japan/Puerto Rico (although it's also in a slump itself but waaay worse than TNA's Slump)

ROH,Dragon Gate USA,CHIKARA,PWG are pretty much that keep me afloat with my Pro Wrestling Love *smiles*

RANDOMNESS(TV,MOVIES,MUSIC,ECT):

I don't watch alot of TV really except of a few shows on Adult Swim or Law & Order: SVU or Conan but I can't wait for the new season of Venture Bros to start,I finally got to catch up on Season 4 since I missed pretty much most of the season,so I bought it on DVD and watched it whole :)

Been listening to mostly the Tron Legacy Soundtrack (Both the Deluxe Edition and the Reconfigured) also some Powerglove,The Sword and a few more and the occasional random song or random game/anime soundtrack.

Since I've gotten a PS3 it's been awesome :D I've been playing most recently Yakuza 3,DC Universe Online,WWE All Stars,still haven't tried Mortal Kombat yet so let's see if I can finally get to play it this weekend.

I totally recomend Chris Jericho's Undisputed Book (the long awaited sequel to A Lion's tale [also a good read]) and Pain and Passion: The History Of Stampede Wrestling :D

Th-th-th-that's all,biznatches!!!

Peace and Keep on Rockin'
