"WHAT THE SHIT?!" v 1.1 with Brian Massey.

welcome to another edition of WTS, im your host Brian Massey.
today's subject: WWE goes PG.

now, tell me, when you think family friendly programming that you can watch at the dinner table, what comes to mind?
i love lucy, fresh prince of bel air, the cosby show, oh and wrestling. you know, for kids!
ok, that was a bit contradictory, seeing as how as a kid, i was a HUGE wrestling fan. but see, heres the big differance between wrestling when i was a kid and kids watching it now: IT FUCKING BLOWS NOWADAYS.
tell me, when is the last time you saw a ladder match? a steel cage match? a HARDCORE match? whens the last time you saw scantily clad women valeting wrestlers down the ramp, only to get into fights themselves? oh, and when is the last time you ever saw a brawl backstage?

nowadays, i guess people have more demand for john cena, hornswaggle, the great khali and any other stupid gimmick the E seems to shit out. i can't watch it anymore. its just too watered down for me. i grew up in a time when wrestling literally was what i breathed and lived. i went to events with friends, had a ring and figures that i would set up in fantasy matches, and started a backyard wrestling organization that i was featured in prominently. lets just say i still have a few scars that havent healed quite yet.
Back in the old WWF and WCW, there was a bitter hatred for one another that drove each other to push the limits. ECW became more prominent and the hardcore, attitude era became more than just an outstanding piece of entertainment. it became a mainstream phenomenon, and it was one of the most exhilirating moments of my life.

back then, there were guys like stone cold, the rock, mankind, triple h, undertaker, kane, al snow, raven, hollywood hogan and them nwo boys, sting, nash and the wolfpac, rvd, sabu, tazz, rhyno, sandman, tommy dreamer, goldberg, i mean the list goes on and on. these guys were the best at their game, in the best time period for wrestling ever, period.
nowadays...i mean, i cant even watch. john cena will be the death of pro wrestling, and im good and pissed about it.

thats all, take care, and KISS MY ASS CENA.

My thoughts on the TJ high shooting.

Hey everyone, Brian here, just thought id give you my thoughts on the recent shooting that happened at my old high school.
this is gonna be a more sincere, honest blog, so no f bombs, no nostalgia or anything fun like that, cause this isnt the time or place

basically, i think its sad. i mean, i went there for 4 years, and not once was there ever a gun reported on campus. there were fights, sure, i mean i was in one or two, but nothing like this. nothing like this.  i thank god that laura wasnt there. i mean, she would be going there if we were still in frederick, so im just thankful for that.

man, now my school is in the list with columbine, vtech, the list is too long...there shouldnt even be a list in my opinion.

its just sad. seriously.

peace. as in let there be peace in this world for once.

ahh, the movie theater, how i adore thee.


right. so, i was just thinking about how much i love that feeling before and after i see a movie. namely, whenever i go to the westview cinema. never have i liked a theater so much in my life. ive seen alot of shit there: lord of the rings trilogy, iron man, spiderman 1 &2 (3 was in germantown, ill talk about it later.), plus plenty of other blockbusters and oscar contenders. personally, i just love the feeling of having a ticket, your friends, and 30 minutes to kill. the arcade is always awesome. something about time crisis 2 and the smell of popcorn just make me feel at home.

anyways, that feeling of euphoria after the movie is done showing is what gets me. when you go home, pop on a video game or something like that, it all seems a bit differant somehow... i dont know how to explain it really...

i usually like to go to chipotle if we get to the theater an hour early. nothing says big summer blockbuster more than a big honkin 1lb. steak and guac burrito, encased in that tin foil we all know and love so much. its also nice to be able to grab a beer after the flick down at the pool hall in the pavillion adjacent to said theater. ok, i dont know where im going with this anymore, but i just enjoy that whole area. its big, spacious, and ive had alot of good times with friends there.

im out.
