The Essential Sir Bill Of Himself iMix

As everyone knows, I never go anywere without my ds, ipod and cell phone, But mostly I couldnt go a day without music. I live on it, I thrive on it. I have a very selective taste for music and more or less anything produced underground, I hate the radio, and Im not too big a fan of rap music in general (Although I do love Wu Tang Clan and Lil Wayne) . I use concerts and Myspace as a way of discovering new bands, as well as word of mouth. Through this I have learned about so many incredible bands, including Him, In This Moment and Five Finger Death Punch, These are bands who generally stay off mainstream radio, you might hear them on college radio mabye Xm or Sirus, but never on like a Waaf or see them on Mtv (not that they play music anymore..). So on with my story, I was sitting around one day and really thinking, I have turned so many people on to certin bands, and there is just so much incredible talent out there who dont get the recognition they deserve or even bands who got mainstream radio play for one song and nothing else, but the back catalog is fuckin phenominal. So I Began composing an Essentials Mix, entitled the Sir Bill Of Himself Essentials List. Bam Margera Has Viva La Bands which has given bands like Negative, Veins of Jenna and Hell Train quite the exposure. Now Im not composing a world tour featuring Cky or anything but I figured for those of you who asked me to burn you cds and shit, heres a list of some of the best bands, and songs which adorn my Infamous playlist. This is a small portion of that list. Song title and album will acompany this list once its complete.

Tna Impact, Video Games and Hans Red Pants

As we all know, Ive always been into video games, theres no 2 ways about it, Hockey yes, loved it to death and still do, Bmx, wish I was still able to ride with out pinching nerves. I keep busy with alot of diffrent things and with the wedding coming closer and closer every day I have to pay attention to that more then anything. I mean shit! It will be the happiest day of my life. Next to the day Lillian was born (God I miss her), and when more pop out. But through it all when everyone was out gettin smashed at the bars with fake ids, I was home haulin off on FF7 and Smb 3.
Ive had every system under the blue sun and I personally am rather bias toward Ps3. My coworkers and a few of my friends agree with me its better to see blue and green lights then it is to see red ones. Anyway So with all the hustle and bustle coming with games, I figured id take a few minutes to talk about some of the games I myself have been waiting for and picked up.

Tna Impact: The hardcore alternative to the norm, Total Nonstop Action Wrestling in all it's violent, 8-sided glory is coming to current day consoles, featuring TNA stars Somoa Joe, Jeff Jarrett, Monty Brown, Rhino, Christopher Daniels, Christian Cage, AJ Styles, and more. This game could have been so much more. In a time were storylines are garbage and WWE will push guys who can't wrestle and release the guys who can (Shannon Moore). Tna is an Incredible alternative, The commentary isnt fantastic, and lets face it, Im sick of Sting being in the direct storyline picture, but the Talent this company is producing or growing who have been misused in the past or made the jump from Ring Of Honor (Briscoes its your time!) are making there names in Tna, and the old guys who are clinging to there spots still are stuck in the middle. Personally i feel as if tna needs to release booker and nash, ban sting from the ring and push the YOUNG talent, such as the Murder city machine guns Robert Roode, James Storm and the always exciting X Division.. Tna has interesting match concepts followed by great wrestling. Thou on a smaller scale, I think the Mid card talent in Tna is more exciting to watch then Dave Batista. These guys understand its about making your way through the indies and respecting the business, face it folks Tna is the future.
Not to take anything away from Tna but midways track record with Wrestling games is not too good. But for a reviving effort with a new company Its not bad.. This game is very bare bones. Not too many types of matches, a lackluster Caw and only 30 characters who were chosen by the Tna Faithful and I do respect there picks. Alot of empahasis in this game was placed on the look and feel which is very acurate, if you have ever been to a phw show in the worcester armory you understand, or to the impact zone or a tna show for that matter. Its awesome, colorful and realistic. The Controls are very simple and hard to train yourself to play on if you religiously play Smackdown Vs Raw 2007 or 2008. Gameplay in my eyes for this gets a B. An excellent first showing. Features... Im being polite here and giving them a C+ . A few things I feel could have been added to this game to make it more extensive:

Elevation X
King Of the Mtn
Titile belts to win and defend
Longer Story Mode
Terror Dome
Curryman and Petey Williams
The Knockouts Why would you not showcase the "best womens divsion" in wrestling
Six Sides of steel
PPV Venues

Note to Midway: I understand there have been a few large changes in the company, but this wasnt a bad first effort. Please listen to the fans as Thq has for us all of these years.

Tna Impact Grade: B- Not bad thou :)

As we Progress into the Christmas holiday you will see more and more games coming out, Smackdown 2009 is due, The highly acclaimed Bioshock Finally makes its way to Ps3 (with a demo october 2nd) Tuesday the 16th is Pure and Star Wars Force Unleashed which is gearing up to be one of the best releases of this month, Lego Batman is the 23rd to add to the fray.

Anyway You can catch Hans (The Master of the Lightsaber Red Pants) Tuesday Morning @ 8am opening early for the release of Star Wars The Force Unleashed. Mind u Hans will be dressed as darth red pants and will some how make an ass of himself (I love giving him shit). Anyway I cannot think of anything else to say. So stay tuned.

WWE Unforgiven 2008

You know most people look at me and wonder how I can still be a wrestling fan after all the dissapointments and bullshit storylines that WWE has been producing lately. Truthfully, I have found myself following the independent circut more and more lately these days, the guys who you wanna see wrestle are the guys who arent always worried about the money. I also try to import as much from New Japan as Possible as well as the Dragons den and Igpw. Everyone knows that Japan is the place to be if your not to worried about storylines and you want real wrestling. Tna has also been gaining alot of steam lately but has lackluster storyline with incredible wrestling talent. My Online buddy Steve Corino (Former Ecw champ and The Self Proclaimed King of old school wrestled this past weekend in Worcester. Unfortunatly I was unable to attend the show and finally meet my friend in person. I know Steve will read this and I look forward to you wrestling here again.

Enough with my sob stories about missed connections, WWE unforgiven showed us some new faces and possible money making angles. This ppv lacked Edge thou. So the Marquee value went down with the loss of Mr. Adam Copeland. I feel that the fresh Intros of Manu (Afa Jr) and the Continuing push of Rhodes and Teddy Jr is fantastic, I think many people would agree with me that those three need to form a stable, add Afa Jr to that and you have a Younger generation of the 80's reborn, Lets face it folks, Randy Orton is Money in the bank, girls think hes gorgeous (ask my fiance) men want to be him, and real wrestling fans agree when he had the wwe title it was fantastic. I know people are shitting all over Triple H, But who has been the guy to make that belt look respectable 12 times, he is a younger version of Nature Boy Ric Flair. He got the look, the body, the Girl the Gold to back up his impressive career and... He has been star material since day one. Kahli is great for relations with Indian Fans, but hes not a champion, Batista is another Ultimate Warrior, Rey Mysterio was only given the belt because Eddie (Rip) Passed away. Kane... Can You Say transitional champion? And Cm Punk, I know alot of people are skeptical about him holding up a company but in Punks defense I suppourt him, and if you dont believe the Walkin talkin ass beatin pie eatin Instant classic, go back to his ring of honor days were he had epic battles with Austin Aries, Samoa Joe and Brian Danielson. You will never see a better quality athlete then a guy like Punk, Shelton Benjamen and Mvp, finally getting deserved pushes, and Brian Kendrick, well Kendrick has so much potential, but work with him on his promos and try more to push him away from The Brian Pillman. There is no comparing the 2. Chris Jericho now holding raws world title is great, but the way he pulled it off isnt smart. You knew he was gonna snake out a victory when you heard his music, Shawn Michaels last night beat him within an inch of his life and from what sources tell me Michaels was deeply concerned for Jerichos well being, You could tell Jericho was abused like a Kimbo Slice Opponent. And I think personally that Match made the entire PPV. Id also like to send a congrats out to the now finally awarded and long overlooked Matt Hardy for winning the Ecw World Title Last night. Matt gives Ecw Hope, I feel that it was very smart to give the Angelic Diablo the belt. He has appeal with the fans, he also opens doors to new fueds. One of which weather you love him or hate him would be with Mike Mizannin (The Miz) Hes the Guy you love to hate. Lets face it, it will be one hell of a fued if it happens, I feel Mark Henry was too much of a squash champion, there was no way you could beat the guy, he sits on you and your done. His matches are sloppy and his move set is limited, its hard to work over a guy like that. Tony Atlas isnt bad in his corner, but who cares... If Matt Hardy can have a nice long title run, ecw will gain steam, and things will go well in the forseeable future for Ecw.

Im starting to get sick of Divas matches. Maryse has no reason to be in a wwe ring. I personally feel she belongs on her knees Strokin Peter Norths Ego. Shes awful, fun to look at but awful. I feel Michelle Mcool and her butterfly title need to call fit finaly and work on there moves as well as reggie parks for a better belt. Lets face it (that the 6th time i said lets face it) The Tna Knockouts do not have gimmick matches. All of those girls are amasing wrestlers and as weve seen Tna can let them Main Event a show and have a Main Event Quality Match.. Nuff Said. Michelle Mcool and Bree Bella Should not be going over, Victoria should not Job either, shes a fantastic Talent in the ring, shes applied her craft well over the years. And lets face it, shes hot. Natalia Same thing, should have that butterfly piece of trash belt. If I were one of them id pull an Alundra Blaze and Drop it in a trash can on national television.. The only reason michelle has the belt is because she asked undertaker for a buried alive match and won (think about it).

Lets see were Raw Goes tonight.. Hopefully no more Adamle Original Wrestlemania 2000 20 Man Hardcore battle royals with only 5 guys in 20 minute matches.. More matches.. Were was Kofi and Santino last night? Mickie James and Beth Phoniex would have been nice. And Please more of Kelly Kelly! Idc if she can wrestle, I just think shes hot!

Much Love!
