Read This Line And Then Get On With Your Life: The best thing I can say about the new 100 from Flea is that, these days, it’s a far better thing to be ahead of Sunny than behind.
Scott went from N/A? (or was he on? I don’t care enough to check!) to 44, which, no offense to Scott, shows how random and meaningless most of the ratings everything from like 25 on down. These people’s work have value, but you’re comparing really tiny apples to really tiny apples. Order them any way you want, they’re still tiny apples in the scheme of things. There are maybe 15 people (and that’s pushing it) on the list who matter to the 2% of readers who really mean anything in the grand scheme of things; the rest are here just to entertain ourselves and each other, but there’s no real impact to what they say. It’s nice, but it don’t mean a thing.
(“Spoken like a guy who’s been doing this for six years and knows what they meant?” “Spoken like a guy who’s occasionally bordeline insane with jealousy over baseball web fandom”)
Wait, wait, let me obscure that comments with a cheap shots so I don’t have to actually intelluctally debate that on any level: Hey, 4 411 guys in the top 11, in a thing written by a 411 guy. Wow. GUTSY
I think that’s better than last time anyway?
Not that I care either way: if the whole inspiration for 411 to add blogs to their site is because Mr. Keith wanted to do a blog…why isn’t Scott blog on 411 now?
Did someone not give Flea the link the Punk’s blog?
Since I have Flea reading this: When you said “the WMXIX match wasn’t as good because Angle didn’t want to mat wrestle”, you really should’ve said “the Iron Man wasn’t as good because Angle didn’t want to mat wrestle.”
Did I ever actually say my “When you’re doing long matches, why don’t you try to sell the commerical time for long matches soccer-style, with ad graphics during the match to avoid commericals?” or did I just keep talking about it to myself? Back in the day, they used to shrink down the action to a little box and just run the commericals in smaller box than usual, and if you timed it right with rest holds, that could work too. The problem probably comes down to a “This segment of the match is being brought to you by-” “A kick to the groin! That’ll leave a mark!” “Subway.”
I always say too much when I’m going on 2 hours of sleep.
Although I have a feeling comments will be added later, I was glad not to see something like “Best lucha recapper” attached to my name. People would’ve died if that happened, again. (If nothing else, the last few weeks has proved that’s not a correct line.)
For lines that aren’t as cheap but perhaps as pointless, feel free to check my AWARDS on OO – writing anything column like stresses me to heck, and I believe I was up to my fourth different deadline by the time I sent it in. What I’m looking forward most to is not getting any feedback, thus validating my urge not to write anything long and/or focused for another six months. WOO HOO
Rick’s nice for putting up with me. You’re nice for putting up with me.
I think in a parallel universe, I may get some CMLL done tommorow. I’ll at least update that page.
My box? Has yet to arrive. ARGH.
