OMFGZ MISS CALIFORNIA HAS OPINIONS

Beyond the Mat is pretty awesome stuff for '90s era wrestling fans. If you've never seen it, just imagine all your WWF favorites being profiled in pretty much every inverse light you're used to seeing them. Jake the Snake does crack, and was jailed for not paying child support. He also failed to make contact with his daughter at one point for 4 years. Mick Foley admitted on film that seeing his kids' reactions during a brutal match made him feel like a bad father, and inevitably led him to retirement (which I don't think really lasted too long). And, you probably already know this, but Vince McMahon is a total fucking asshole. One wrestler was fired by McMahon for having left the circuit to see the birth of his child. Wrestling is one messed up theatre, man.

Speaking of theatre, Nancy Pelosi and President Obama are pretty much the biggest disappointments who've developed in the past 72 hours. I don't know why anyone's avoiding this conversation. Light the torches and pack the van.
"Here came the awful truth about slides: Too many mountains, too many trees, too many prairie dogs and never enough of your grandmother wearing cat-eye sunglasses, giving your grandfather that look she gave him when she thought he was being a precious fool. Too many hot-air balloons or Alaskan glaciers; not enough glum, pimply teenagers trying to look away from the camera. The lack of intimacy is what strikes you. The camera was always pointed at the most colorful thing, the most Kodachrome thing, the thing possessing what we all agree is natural beauty, but it was usually the wrong thing. Here is the turkey we ate in 1978, but why didn't anybody think to take a shot of whoever took out the trash that night?

You'd give back all those sunset slides for just one slide of your father at age 31."
Hank Stuever is starting to become one of my favorite writers.
