I still can't believe that out of the big WWF Vengence Pay-per-view on Sunday, Chris Jericho walked out the Undisputed Unified Champion of the World. I didn't think it would be Rock or Austin, because that would have been a little too obvious. I was thinking Kurt Angle, really. But not Jericho. Of all the other wrestlers that could have become the very first joint WWF/WCW Champion, at the same time, I can list a dozen wrestlers that would have been befitting of that history-making moment, and Jericho isn't in that dozen. Ok, so I not a big Jericho fan, I don't deny it.

Punk-o-rama TV. Every Saturday night, well technically Sunday morning, at 1 a.m. on KDOC-TV, Channel 56 here in southern California, they air a 30-minute program of nothing but punk rock videos, called Punk-o-rama TV. I would say that this is a pleasant surprise in a) they have a show like this, and b) I actually enjoy it. Either punk's going mainstream, or I'm adapting. So far, out of the 4 weeks I've seen, I like the Hives, DropKick Murphys, and Bouncing Souls. (I liked Bouncing Souls before this, but it just reinforced that belief). Although, the more I hear "Capitalism Stole my Virginity" by the International Noise Conspiracy, the more I like it, and one week, I was singing "Driod" by the Selby Tigers. Maybe I'm going punk after all.
|Wouldn't be Surprised|
Tiger Woods has a new book entitled, "How I Play Golf." I fully expected every page to simply say, "Better than you!"
|Not surprised at all|
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone raked in over $93 million in the first three days. I stood in a line that started in the theatre, extended out a door and around the building. I haven't waited for a movie in this manner in a long time. Of course, back in the day, I would have been sneaky and found the theatre that would have shown the movie on Thursday night/Friday morning. I'm thinking, though, that I may wait a while for Lord of the Rings.
