The one with Macho Madness

May 26, 2011

There have been plenty of Randy Macho Man Savage tributes since he passed. Most of them will be better than this one, but they at least came sooner (That’s what she said!) This isn’t even really a tribute just some memories that popped up when he died.

Was I a fan?
(OOOOH YEAH!)

When I was younger there were sweet action figures made by LJN:

The ones circled are the ones I had:

Hulk Hogan (Top row)
Iron Sheik (2nd row on the left)
Rowdy Roddy Piper (2nd row on the right)
And of course Randy Macho Man Savage (6th row)

Yeah they were awesome! They bent (if by bent you mean immediately went back to original position) and looked as close to them as my young mind thought possible.

(Barring evil scientist experimenting with illegal things)
(shut up)

I did get pissed when I wanted to do The Macho Man’s patented flying elbow but his elbow would stay in the same position.

It frustrated me to no end! So I decided to improvise (so creative) and use my G.I. Joes as the wrestlers. Hey Sgt. Slaughter was in both.I used this one as Randy Savage because he wore a hat and sunglasses!

(Dig it!)

That is Wild Bill in G.I. Joe lore but he served me well as Macho Man.

(I’ve been to the danger zone. Yeah)

I used the WWF ring but matches took place anywhere.

My bed (bow chikka bow wow*)
The backyard (falls count anywhere bitches!)
Shower (Double bow chikka bow wow**)
In the garage (hardcore originator bitches)

AnyScaryInsightIntoYoungJimi if there were matches of course there had to be champions right? Yep and I used the twist ties to bread bags as the belts. I saw to it that The Macho Man held onto the title for a long long time.

Also the time I came closest to getting in a fight I channeled my inner Randy Savage. It was on a dumb fake boat in the playground at the church school I attended.

(Done laughing?)

Anyways this kid (named Jake) was getting all up in my grill (so to speak) and I remembered back when Savage was fueding with Jake the Snake Roberts. So I said “I’ll turn you into a pair of jakeskin boots!”

May have thrown in a “dig it” but I can’t confirm that.

*Joke purposes only nothing sexual ever took place. Perverts
**Same as above you sickos.

OOOOOH YEAH! R.I.P Macho Man

Post it Note Tuesday Part the 7

February 9, 2010

Okay so these were from last week but it seems that I never actually put it to publish. I apparently did not. I’m smert….wait what? So these have the feel of being a bit outdated….oh well…they still work and are what I feel…besides this week would’ve just been me posting about how the owner is selling the store and that sucks and gonna need to find a job…nobody wants to hear that right?

Here is a fabby little clicky click if you’d like to read more Post its!

And here is a link to a site where you can make your own

Now onward to mine:

You were a great Basketball player but man does your analysis suck. You are rarely funny and often just say the same thing over and over. Don’t get me started on how painful your SNL was. I hate your Taco Bell commercial more than I hate your commentary.

Photobucket

I may have been the only but who cares. I didn’t care who won or what they wore either.
Photobucket

You suck. No really you do. I mean rarely do I get a weekend day off let alone two straight days off to spend with the wifey. Thanks for nothing.
Photobucket

Seriously. I mean come on. 3 poems in two days and not one is worthy of saving.
Photobucket

William Shatner is awesome for so many reasons I can’t even keep track of them. Last night he was the guest host of Monday Night Raw and was hysterical!
Photobucket

It may be a bit cliché but you really changed how I saw writing and kind of life. I carried Catcher in the Rye around in my bag all through High School. Hell half the time I carry it around now. I’ve read the book at least 16 times.
Photobucket

You truly were one of the greatest of all times. Rest in Peace and thank you for all you gave. Jack Brisco 1941-2010

Bozo the Clown Dies

Bozo the clown

Bozo the clown

Larry Harmon, the man who not only played Bozo the Clown for many years, but turned the character into an institution has died. He passed away at his home due to congestive heart failure at the age of 83. Bozo the Clown was a character created by writer & producer Alan W. Livingston. The clown created for a series of children’s records in 1946 would delight them for decades. Harmon was not the first nor would he the last to play the lovable clown. Unlike the others, he would take the job and run with it–eventually purchasing the rights to the character. He turned a casting call for personal appearances into big business.

Now we all know Clowns are creepy as all get out but I’ve always been intrigued by Harmon.

He was born in Toledo, Ohio and managed the character brilliantly. He’d basically lease out the character and name to local markets and then train those picked to play the role (something like 200 or so). I can only imagine what it’d be like to create or be a part of history like that. A character that would live on for half a century! I mean from the start in 1946 to the last pie to the face in Chicago, in 2001 it was a staple, a mainstay, a (enter cliched phrase here).

They’re still creepy! Need proof? Hell In Washington, D.C. Bozo was portrayed for a time by Willard Scott!!!

It don’t get creepier than that!

Anyways, here’s to Bozo the Clown
