Raw Ruminations 3, Run DMC, Pho, Wrestling and more

After dinner at the always delightful Pho 78 in Virginia Beach I purchased new RUN-DMC earbuds so I can listen to my iPod at random times without the clunky club DJ headphones I have laying around the house. During dinner we watched Kareem Abdul Jabbar compete and loose on celebrity Jeopardy and then caught some of America's Got Talent- I admit I like Howard Stern on the show and it looks fun, but honestly I will probably never watch it on a regular basis. Lately I have been watching a mix of Black Books , Dr Who , Caprica and Downton Abbey on Netflix Streaming. Desperate Housewives concluded their run on ABC- I liked the first hour of the finale and the conclusion to the Bree murder trial, the second hour felt like After Mash. Either way I enjoyed the show,but I am glad it is history. I am rooting for Arsenio Hall to win Celebrity Apprentice- although the Magic Johnson video gaffe had my jaw agape as I was laughing at the miscue.Speaking of miscues this season of SNL has been subpar- yes I joined the SNL is not the same bandwagon 26 years later or so.

Speaking of listening- here is a link to the most recent episode of Audio Junk- this episode features mashups,samples,funk,soul and more -click to listen for more odd audio check out http://kaosradioaustin.org

Sadly Wrestlecrap radio will no longer be co-hosted by RD and Blade Braxton, on the upside Blade will continue to do shows. The best news I have read in some time is that Tara a/k/a Victoria in WWE will be featured nude in Penthouse magazine- can't wait to not read the articles.

Here is the link to my most recent column about Monday Night Raw- click to read.

Here is a decent documentary about Wrestling at the Chase and the legacy of Sam Muschnick and St Louis wrestling.
