Observations on the Road to...

A Fearless Journey is JERICHO!!!!!

Yeah, I watched Monday Night Raw last night expressly just to witness the "2nd coming." I grew up watching wrestling and until 6th grade, thought it was real. I stopped really paying attention when I reached 12th grade when the "Attitude Era" had passed. I was a "Hulkamaniac," and after that Bret Hart became my favorite.

If I'm bored, and WWE has something on the TV, I'll give it a browse, but I'm not the avid fan I once was. But I have heard talk that one of my favorite wrestlers of all time, Chris Jericho, was returning this fall to the company.

Here's a clip from when he made his debut (which involved The Rock) back in 1999.

There's no video from last night on youtube, yet, but soon I'm sure. I watched the segment from last night probably about 3 or 4 times before the memory on my TiVo erased it.

There is an electricity about wrestling that can make it so fucking great, and that's why I liked wrestling for as long as I did. Unfortunately, wrestling these days, or at least the WWE, just lacks that electricity. But you could feel the electricity watching Chris Jericho make his WWE return at the end of Raw. I dunno that this'll keep me watching beyond the next couple of weeks, which includes Raw's 15th Anniversary show at the beginning of December, but damn if it wasn't fun KNOWING just how much I "marked-out" last night. Jeez, I hadn't "marked-out" like that in so fucking long.

I already got page 152 from The Homeless Channel, and I've made plans to go to NSSN, so that's at least two items from the Christmas List post. And after watching Raw last night (and as if there was any doubt, previously), Jericho definitely sold me on getting his book.

My Christmas List

So last night, my mom told me that one of my nephews has already written his Christmas wish list. And we both kinda thought that it was a bit early, and since then I've thought about a few things that I'm thinking about getting. So I guess as right now,a list of things I have my eye on at the moment:

An original page from Matt Silady's Homeless Channel

A Nintendo DS Lite (While a friend watched the Hotel Chevalier on my iPod, I played Brain Age last night in a movie theater waiting for American Gangster to start. Which is ridiculously good!!) But yeah, I want a DS Lite and Brain Age, and now I think I might be addicted to Sodoku. I want a DS Lite, and I want it now!!:P

Guitar Hero III for the Wii.

This Peter Jennings book.

This Entourage book.

This Chris Jericho book.

This Joe Strummer book.

This Spirit Archives book.

Working in a bookstore again, it was only a matter of time before I'd come across these "wallet thinners." The last five on that list, at least. I might as well make it a reading list, too, now that I think about it. Anyway, I'm off to get my hands on Y: The Last Man #59. I'm hoping my heart doesn't get broken like it was when I got to the end of #58. Fucking Vaughan! :P

Okay. Just got back from the LCS, and totally forgot to list tickets to Live 105's Not So Silent Night. And I just finished Y#59. And wow, now that is how you take a person down a peg or two.

I am so tired.

First, Halloween, wasn't bad, I guess, but walking aimlessly around downtown San Jose wasn't all that fun either. I'll post pictures soon. I've said that a lot lately, but I will get to it.

Today I checked my email for the first time since last Friday afternoon. I spent Thursday and Friday night at my day job at the ol bookstore. Hung out at the casa de Dang-alang, MAnthony, and T'Money's place after work on Friday. Then spent Saturday and Sunday revising the ol screenplay. When I say the entire weekend, I mean I left the house only twice. Once on Saturday, and once on Sunday. I kept myself in the house for probably what would amount to 30 minutes, but that's mostly because the drive-thru line as Taco Bell and In-N-Out Burger was so damn long.

Anyway, I'm goin to San Francisco for the day tomorrow to talk to a former professor, and hopefully see some friends. Plus I've spent the last couple hours catching up on what I've missed... I've missed a quite a number of things. And I've been uploading some pictures from within the last month that I haven't been able to get to yet. Plus, the WGA is officially now on strike, and they have my full support. I'll share more of my thoughts soon, but right now, FUCK, I'm hungry.
