Stunt Granny Audio: OHPA 6

Ken and Ken are back for another edition of OHPA! They don’t do much yammering before getting they jump on their first topic: An Epic Rap Battle between Superman and Goku. Why did this topic remind Kevin of Idiot Intern? What is their history with the show Dragonball Z? How dedicated was Ken to the show? What piece of electronics starts off discussion of old technologies? Why do they like Goku better than Superman? How was the Rap Battle itself? They move on to talking about another love from their past, arcade games. Ken & Kevin bring up StevenF’s article about beating Dragon’s Lair. How much do they remember about the game? Did they ever beat it? Why was it different from many other video games of the time? How much did it cost to buy Space Ace, which was Dragon’s Lair in the future? How did that compare to the cost of a Nintendo? Why could you play multiple games on this arcade console?  How did 50 Cent’s terrible first pitch make it into this segment? What humble brag event finished this story? Which one of your hosts would have done the same? Ken & Kevin end with a topic from Kevin’s recent travel, legal marijuana in Colorado. How many jobs has it created? Is it more likely to be legalized in OH or PA in the near future? How is the state Washington doing with their program compared to Colorado? Of course Kevin tried some while he was there so go ahead and roll one up and click on the link below for a high-larious show!

Stunt Granny Audio: OHPA 5

Ken and Kevin are back for another week of weird scientific discovery. Ken forwarded Kevin an article and video (above) about octopuses. Of course, he has a hard time remembering whether the articles were about squids or octopus. What factoids about octopus did they not know? Where are their brains located? How does the original Iron Chef factor into this equation? How much extra research did Ken not pass along to Kevin? How long do octopi live? What happens when they have sex? Speaking on both of those matters, how crazy is the life of an antechinus? How do you have a column named Absurd Creature of the Week? How long can one keep that up? How focused are the males on sex? How long could your hosts keep up this pace? What happens to these males as they are having sex? What about the females? How many children do they birth? How many of them can they feed?  Even though both of these creatures are weird, how strange are the Japanese and their game shows? Why would three Olympic fencers take on 50 amateurs? What crazy game shows did Ken’s friend bring back to the States (gasp on video cassette) after he taught in Japan? Why would anyone ever sign up for this game? Back to the fencers though, who wins? Will the guys spoil the finale and not provide the video evidence? Follow this link for the video. Welcome to the wild world of OHPA when you click on the link below.

 

The Daily News – “Mad Dog” Maurice Vachon Dies at 84

Greg Oliver of Slam! Wrestling reported that “Mad Dog” Maurice Vachon. I have never watched Vachon so I have no basis for writing this article. Luckily, Youtube has a clip of Mr. Vachon doing his speech for his Hall of Fame induction in 2010. Condolences to his family. – Kevin

Are Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards Headed To The WWE?

This clip from Preston City Wrestling has people wondering if Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards have signed with the WWE. If they have, I will have to compliment ROH for keeping them off TV for most of the last several months. When they have been on, it’s been in the tag team division. The last point is where I think the WWE would put them because neither of these guys have fantastic mic skills. I mean, you did watch that Youtube clip above, right? It’s also good thing for both of these wrestlers that the WWE has revived the use of manager’s also because of said verbal abilities. I enjoy Eddie Edwards but still have yet to figure out why Davey Richards has ever been called “Best In The World”. If they have signed with the WWE, it will be interesting to see if they get the CM Punk treatment and get sent to NXT to learn the WWE style or if they get a pass straight to the main roster.

Since Davey was vague in the above promo, there is still the possibility that they have signed with TNA. That would be a mistake on both ends. Richards & Edwards aren’t going to bring in new fans. Likewise they won’t garner any new fans in TNA or if they do, it won’t be enough to budge the needle. Richards & Edwards would probably just do the same American Wolves schtick in TNA since everyone stagnates there. In the WWE, they would at least be challenged to come up with a new gimmick. We’ll have a howling good time waiting to see where these two wrestlers find their new hunting ground. – Kevin

#ROH is the Worst Part IX

hoopla_shirtI know this image has already taken a tour thru the internet, most notably on a certain Facebook page not named Stunt Granny. I held off on commentary because how does this not scream “ROH is the Worst”? Jeremy had asked me to review it before I saw the post on Facebook but had forgotten about it until I started mowing through my back log of episodes. Jeremy & I had gone back and forth about whether this shirt was even worth buying for a goof but we both agreed we’d be feeding into the abyss of terrible that is ROH so we wouldn’t even buy it as a gag. Sure enough, in the first episode I watched from 1 June, some tool in the first row already had the shirt.

With my memory thoroughly jogged, let’s get on to breaking down this absolute train wreck. They’re going for a crass (I can’t think of a better word because it’s not outrageous or shocking or trying to appeal to the ladies) with this gimmick so one would think they wouldn’t be shy with the design. The Os in Hoopla scream to be used as a highlighter for her boobs. But ROH designers don’t even feel the need to put any type of definition into the silhouette. They need to at least highlight some of the curves if she’s going to be a hottie. The other option is to capitalize on the mini-hula hoop craze that hit Youtube last year and show the silhouette hula hooping. The word Hoopla Hottie could have even been used inside the hula hoop even if the font would have been smaller than the real shirt.

On the back of the shirt, it has the statement “Take Your Pants Off” which of course then shows a top hat. I understand that Truth Martini needs to be involved since it’s his gimmick and the Mad Hatter hat is part of his schtick but why are you using that image? This shirt is about the women that are around Martini. How could you not use a silhouette of women’s pants? Since we’re being crass, lingerie would imply you got a little more off than just pants.

You mean to tell me they couldn’t get one of Truth’s Hoopla Hotties to pose like this?

Beside the image, we get a picture of a tuxedo jacketed, hot pants wearing Truth Martini. He isn’t wearing his own shirt which is the point of a model. Let’s go back to my theme of this being crass. Don’t you think that the same tool that already bought this shirt would like a picture of a Hoopla Hottie wearing this Daisy Duke style and knotted at the stomach? Or they could go “Pants off” and have her wearing the shirt without any pants on. ROH can’t even get a t shirt design right. ROH is the worst. -Kevin

Wrestlemania 29 (NY/NJ) Previews Part I

TheShield

Since Jeremy agreed that he wouldn’t be doing previews as I had predicted on Monday, I’m going written for the previews. I’m hoping to do two matches a day including on Sunday. We’ll see if it happens or if I end up stacking them up because I can’t get to them. I’ll be separating them into pairs with one good match and one bad match.

Bad Match

Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett defending against The Miz: We saw The Miz headline Wrestlemania two short years ago in Atlanta. Now he’s get to start the show off…on Facebook/Youtube/WWE App/Tout/Whatever. Wade Barrett was the next big thing until an elbow injury derailed him. I don’t feel bad for the Miz because his character has been stuck in a rut since we last saw him. He was great as a company pitch man when he went on Opie & Anthony recently but it doesn’t change his stale act. I do feel bad for Barrett though. Just as in sports, a man shouldn’t lose his starting job because of injury. I feel like Barrett did. His character got some polishing up during his re-introduction so he’s gone through more change than the Miz. The Intercontinental Belt is a meaningless object though. Most of the time, when someone drops it, they’re finally ready for bigger and better things. Prediction: The Miz becomes the next Chris Jericho and starts racking IC Title reigns.

Good Match

The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns & Seth Rollins) against The Main Eventers (The Big Show, Randy Orton & Sheamus): I’m stretching to put this one in the good category. I have enjoyed the Shield though even if their terrorist inspired videos are too polished. I do think they’ll need to do something more than search for justice after Wrestlemania. I’ve enjoyed the bickering between Big Show and Sheamus. They should be since they were involved in a bitter nearly year long feud. Did I ever doubt that the Big Show would be on the team? Not even when they introduced Ryback who had already been building to a feud with Mark Henry. The match should be a good one as the three season vets should be able to help out a team that hasn’t seen much in ring work in the WWE. Prediction: The Shield finally goes down so we can move on to their next phase.

WWE Cyber Monday Deals

The WWE advertized deals up to 90% off select items during Raw last night. Naturally I started looking for deals last night during the show in my Blog (see below, I’m not linking it) but couldn’t find any in the first three or four pages. Luckily, the WWE has kept these deals going through today. I have looked through many more pages. Here are the deals I came up with that are 90% off.

Zack Ryder – 8×10 Unsigned Photo – Are you ready to go to a wrestling convention, bro? I say pick up this SSSIIICCCKKK photograph so that you can shell out the money you saved for his autograph.

WWE Magazine – August 2011 – I mean, who wouldn’t want this priceless item for 99 cents? I was curious to find out what exactly was in this magazine so I could make fun of it’s stellar contents. The WWE didn’t mention the information when you’re giving this away for 90% off! Instead of getting that information, I’m going to leave you with a Youtube clip that reviews the magazine. Naturally, no American is dumb enough to do this review. It is a very riveting so enjoy.

Yes, that is the entire list of items 90% off out of a total of 401 items. Advertisements are always genuine. Never a hint of a lie in them. At least you can get these items for a combined $1.18. -Kevin
