Weekend Retrospective | Macho Man Randy Savage-Heavyweight Champion of Puerto Rico?

Everyone remembers Macho Man Randy Savage for being one of the great figures in the history of professional wrestling. His rivalries with Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair and The Ultimate Warrior over the WWF and WCW World Heavyweight Championships are legendary. His feud with Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat over the WWF Intercontinental Title culminated in the greatest match in the history of the industry. And his feud with Jerry "The King" Lawler in Tennessee during the old territory days is still talked about in basements and pool halls in the deep south to this day (I don't know for that sure,...

Weekend Retrospective | The Legend of Mitch "Blood" Green

In the 1980s there were few stars bigger than Mike Tyson. He was an executioner - an unstoppable force of furious nature who could unleash hell on earth inside a squared circle. Throughout the course of his career Tyson had a number of rivals to contend with: Frank Bruno, Donovan Ruddock, Lennox Lewis and of course Evander Holyfield. But of all his foils there is perhaps none more amusing than the rivalry Tyson shared with the legend otherwise known as Mitch "Blood" Green. It all started in early 1986. Tyson was quickly moving up the rankings and was destined to...

"He is the scariest most horrifying looking human being I've ever met, but at the same time the guy is one of the funniest nicest dudes I've ever met." -David Choe; on Danny Trejo It was 2010 when world-renowned street artist and multi-multi-millionaire (thank you Facebook stock option) David Choe first informed us that while growing up his burgeoning artistic interests began for him by drawing superheroes: Superman, Batman, etc. But then one day the inevitable happened, David Choe drew his first female. From then on Choe never had an interest in any studies of the male form ever again,...

Weekend Retrospective | Meet Boba Fett, for the very first time

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-yF5HFFcv8E Many have seen the early Ralph McQuarrie sketches of Boba Fett sporting an all-white helmet and armor design. What very few have ever had the opportunity to see is the original all-white Fett costume in action. A videotape was rolling to capture "proto Fett's" reveal to Lucas and company at the filmmaker's home on June 28, 1978. In the video we see sound designer Ben Burtt hosting the Boba Fett character design's unveiling. The character Boba Fett would be used later that year for the first time ever in Lucas' infamous Star Wars Holiday Special (if you haven't seen...

Weekend Retrospective | The Tom Green & Xzibit freestyle

Who thinks of Tom Green as a bad ass rhyme-spittin' MC with a whole lotta' flow? I didn't. But I probably should have because one day I saw this. What we have here is an episode of Tom Green's own variety show in which Xzibit is a guest. At a certain point in the interview Tom Green feels like a freestyle, requests a beat from his house DJ, and asks Xzibit if he'd like to join in at any time to feel free. Mildly amused, Xzibit sarcastically replies to the court jester, "If you inspire me, I'll jump right in."...
