Studying from the very best + Latest Happenings


It has been a very long time since I’ve performed a weblog submit. It looks as if I’ve performed half a dozen shoots whereas being in-and-out of varied levels of being run down or having a weakened immune system.

Life continues to be busy and chaotic….and, to be sincere, I think it’s going to be altering anytime quickly. It isn’t as horrible because it sounds and I needed to put in writing this weblog for the final 6 weeks or so —- so I believe it’s going to be a enjoyable learn.

TRANSMISSION & LAWN MOWER PROBLEMS

Let’s begin with the shitty stuff. Throughout Royal Rumble weekend, I used to be up at Tropicana Subject (the place they have been holding mentioned occasion) when my transmission lastly gave out. In fact, it is past the guarantee and I did not get any extra insurance coverage to cowl such an issue. 

I needed to have my automobile towed 30+ miles again to my home the place it has been sitting for the final 2 weeks or so. 

Tomorrow I plan to ship it as much as the storage the place it’s going to be for a pair days earlier than it’s pack in motion. 

I will be ready for Blake Starr to come back save the day by fixing my garden mower, which wanted a brand new carburetor. Blake has been an enormous assist and is aware of a ton of stuff.

We received along with Scrappy and some buddies to catch Monster Jam in Tampa just lately. It is changing into like an annual occasion for us. We’re nonetheless children at coronary heart and are in awe of monster vehicles flying by the sky!

MegaCon ORLANDO

One of many causes that I’ve needed to depart my automobile parked was resulting from my wacky wrestling film being picked for a Movie Pageant being held at a HUGE Comedian Con. My movie was going to be performed on Sunday, however I seen that they had some wrestling happening throughout the occasion and I knew I needed to get some additional eyes on film…plus I at all times like sneaking round behind the curtains to attempt to spot what is going on on with the celebs backstage. 

Let’s begin firstly…

I acquired a textual content from a wrestler (previously of WCW & TNA Wrestling) congratulating me on having the film chosen for the Movie Pageant. Now that is surreal to start with, anyone I watched on TV as a child is messaging me saying congrats – it is wild! Nevertheless, it did not actually hit me that this was as necessary and as monumental because it was. 

On the time, I used to be someplace between Palm Springs & Los Angeles…hell, to be honest, I could have even been wandering out within the desert space of Slab Metropolis USA & Bombay Seaside.

 

 

I positively wasn’t totally comprehending how massive MegaCon Orlando is…it is large. An estimated 200k folks on Saturday of the occasion alone. Actors from Star Wars, 90s TV, a whole bunch of distributors, music and who is aware of what else? 

I spent Thursday to Sunday within the MegaCon space and solely noticed items of the third flooring and the 2nd flooring. The extra I moved round, the extra I noticed there was much more upstairs and downstairs…and even stuff off-premise. Every night time I went again to the resort exhausted. It was superior and extremely productive for the movie.

We did not win the Movie Pageant, however we gained a variety of supporters and noticed a variety of fascinating issues.

RON SEXTON & KID LEOPARD

Now, why was I in Los Angles/Palm Springs? I used to be visiting my pal, Ron. One of many guys that actually helped me come up within the wrestling world and within the video wrestling world. Ron has taught me lots and I at all times considered his firm as a Hollywood of underground wrestling with its manufacturing values – lighting, cameras, computer systems, photographers, make-up artists, branding, and so forth. 

Ron’s firm at all times felt totally different from what I skilled at Child Leopard’s place. One is in an enormous warehouse with infinite costume racks and manufacturing tools…whereas the opposite is in a home with milk crates of speedos and a small closet of wrestling boots. 

I appreciated wrestling for each locations and each homeowners took time to point out me a variety of issues that I nonetheless use at the moment. Child Leopard assisted in honing my wrestling expertise and understanding the significance of creating positive the digicam received to see what we have been doing. He taught me new holds, new poses for images, story telling and that something could be a place to wrestle – whether or not a hoop, or mat, or shed, or gazebo. Wherever!

Ron took the time to show me the finer issues outdoors the ring. How one can correctly movie a wrestling match, costumes, site stuff, paperwork, taxes, and extra story telling in movies. As soon as whereas I used to be in Los Angeles, he employed a pair wrestlers to wrestle simply so I may follow my digicam work with him overseeing it.

I ponder what he did with that footage – most likely nonetheless in his vault gathering mud. 

 

Which is a part of why I used to be out in Palm Springs. Ron has a house there and invited me out for dinner and to hang around for a couple of days. He had simply received some kind of fancy stress cooker (it has a special title than that, however I am primary within the kitchen) and needed to point out off his chef expertise. He teased me with a little bit tortilla pizza he made earlier than the principle meal, which took longer than ordinary to prepare dinner and I jokingly advised him I would be letting everybody who reads the weblog know the way very similar to his wrestling movies and cooking have been alike….THEY ARE OVERCOOKED, GAVE ME THE RUNS & WERE TASTELESS! 

Clearly, that is a joke and Ron is aware of that. We had some good laughs. Went to the native air museum and an area spot for breakfast, however most of our time collectively was at his home chatting about the way forward for Can-Am…or as I am dubbing it CAM-AM.

Ron really simply texted me again as we’re engaged on respiration some life again into the Cadillac that used to rollover the competitors. 😉 It is a gradual transferring prepare, however we will make it work.

LOS ANGELES & HOLLYWOOD 

As I grow old, Los Angeles loses a few of its’ enchantment to me. Possibly I am simply prepared for someplace quiet for a short time…with some area to piss outdoors.

We did a shoot up in Canoga Park & within the Hollywood Hills of an AirBNB that was unusually moderately priced. Initially, I had deliberate to do the shoot for Ron’s web site and needed one thing distinctive from what I have been seeing all around the wrestling world recently. I attempted to movie with all contemporary faces and I used to be doing nice till I got here throughout anyone I did not acknowledge from a earlier shoot.

Luke London was much less muscular final time I noticed him, which was lower than a 12 months in the past. He was additionally utilizing a special title on the time. We had texted forwards and backwards beneath a brand new quantity he had and arrange a time for he and his buddy to come back by to wrestle. As quickly as he received out of the automobile, he acknowledged me and defined who he was. HOLY SHIT! What a distinction a 12 months could make. 

He is a hilarious man and made the night very enjoyable and stuffed with laughs and smiles…and a few shaking of our heads. He is a personality. Be sure to try BEVERLY THRILLS 90210, which is one thing I wanna maintain going, particularly after I want an excuse to get out to Los Angeles to fulfill up with Ron.

FLORIDA ACTION & WHAT’S NEXT

I simply did a small shoot with a brand new man that appears like Johnny Depp and have one other shoot deliberate for Tuesday with a pair new faces. I actually ought to decelerate on filming as I’ve 200+ movies of matches proper now….and I am planning to deal with an enormous assortment of personal customized movies within the close to time period.

I am additionally considering of an annual Wrestler4Hire Journal. Some unique interviews. Possibly behind the scenes articles on what it is like at a shoot. Possibly one thing about what it is like commissioning a customized video or a personal wrestling match. Possibly a bit known as “From The Thoughts of A Madman”…haha. It is a current concept that I assumed may very well be fascinating. 

What would you wish to see within the annual journal? Hundreds & A great deal of pics I am positive. 

We will probably be launching an OnlyFans account as quickly as I end setting issues up…or a minimum of that’s my plan. We all know how the very best laid plans of mice and males can go. 

Oh yeah, I completed a pair books just lately. Any Mitch Albom followers on the market? That man writes some nice stuff. I believe I’ve learn like 5 or 6 of his tales, perhaps much more.

WEBSITE PROBLEMS

I ought to’ve put this on the high, however my thoughts will get forward of me, so typically necessary issues find yourself within the unsuitable place. 

I just lately discovered 2 web site flaws…

1) International language addresses are being rejected resulting from some characters not being readable to the system. I’ve reached out to many individuals and can proceed to take action after I see this drawback. It is a easy answer. 

Simply change any distinctive characters in international language to an equal to the English image/letter akin to…. à, è, ì, ò, ù  to a, e, i, o, u……and issues like “ß” to the letter B or no matter is analogous

2) American Categorical does NOT work with the location. I’ve chatted with a couple of folks within the workplace of the processor for the location and it looks as if it is a headache to get AmEx accredited and most of the people have a Visa or MasterCard, so in the event you’ve had issues with web site utilizing an American Categorical that is why. 

Please assist me out by utilizing your Visa or MasterCard – I do recognize you understanding

BONSOIR for now!
