Why Are My Parties The Best


Canada’s Only Sumo Wrestler

As sports go, Canada is far better known for ice hockey than for anything else—and certainly not for sumo wrestling. However, the Great White North was home to one storied rikishi named John Tenta. Hailing from British Columbia, Tenta attended Louisiana State University, where he participated in a variety of sports including wrestling, football, and rugby. After meeting a sumo wrestler traveling in Canada, Tenta was recruited to travel to Japan and take up the sport.

He was quite successful, wrestling under the name “Kototenta” (literally “Tenta the Harp”). However, the rigors of the sumo lifestyle did not behoove Tenta. Moreover, to continue his career, he would have been forced to endure painful skin graft surgery to remove a large tiger tattoo (the mascot of his alma mater) he had on his arm. Tenta resigned from sumo but landed on his feet as a professional wrestler, eventually ending up in the WWF, where he performed under the name “Earthquake,” a villainous character who skirmished with the likes of Hulk Hogan. To provide an illustration of Earthquakes’s immensity, the above clip shows him assaulting—and not looking that small beside—Andre the Giant. Sadly, John Tenta succumbed to bladder cancer in 2006, aged just 42.


First Man Can Wait

One of the only things that disappointed me about the story of the Moon Landing is that Neil Armstrong himself didn't say enough about his experience. There were no interviews or TV documentaries or even books that got past the notoriously private and humble nature of a man who may have been the greatest human being this planet ever produced. For once, we got it right. Now to cast Ryan Gosling who for me is the most boring, still, and silent actor there ever was. It's like I am watching a mute every time I see him in a movie. I kinda hate him. But for this movie he might just be perfect for the part.

I have my screener from Yuri just ready to go but after seeing this trailer I might hold off until I am in the mood for it. I am ready for The Right Stuff and this looks like it could be a watered down version of that. Though I do loves me some Cory Stoll as Buzz Aldrin. He's just one of those actors that I connect to in whatever role he does. So he will be a great Aldrin. You know they called him Buzz because he was afraid of bees? True story or so they say.
