The Day Wrestling Died

On: Friday, March 30, 2012

As an teenager in the 1960s I loved watching wrestling on TV, when it was "really real", as Bruno Sammartino reigned supreme.
During one interview the camera was pulled back *just* enough so that, during a wrestler's rant, I saw the interviewer tap the wrestler's foot with his own foot. The rant abruptly ended, just when I thought that the interview was really spinning out of control.
The curtain was drawn back and I saw the great Oz for who, and what it actually was. Wrestling, for me, went in the pooper, more devastating than if Bruno himself crushed me into submission with his most famous closing moves: the Bearhug, the Hammerlock or the Pendulum backbreaker.

Sad, But True!

On: Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Years ago we commissioned an "original" oil painting to be produced by a local guy.  For guidance, we told him we wanted to cover a fairly large wall space in our living room and we suggested a color palette (sophisticated be we!) 
YEARS go by and I see the same painting in a movie. The movie was called "X-Rated" and was a bio-pic on porn's Mitchell Brothers.
