Les Nessman: I'm here with hundreds of people who have gathered to witness what has been described as perhaps the greatest turkey event in Thanksgiving Day history. All we know for sure is that in a very few moments there are going to be a lot of happy people out here. Now the crowd is... [passers-by gawk at Les]

Les Nessman: The... the crowd is uh... curious but well behaved. And I think I hear something now. Uh... The crowd is moving out into the parking area. And... oh yes! I can see it now. It's a... it's a... helicopter and it's coming this way!

Andy Travis: A helicopter?

Les Nessman: It's flying something behind it and I can't quite make it out. It's a large banner and it says H A P P Y... T H A N K S... giving... from W... K... R... P!

What a sight, ladies and gentlemen. What a sight. The 'copter seems to circling the parking area now. I guess it's looking for a place to land. No! Something just came out of the back of a helicopter. It's a …

DEAD afterlife The Movie

DEAD afterlife The Movie –
From the creative genius of HorrorNews.net comes a brand new vision in Horror cinema.  

Imagine watching your own funeral as a ghost and then the unthinkable happens,  your undead body climbs out of your coffin and starts killing and eating your friends and family.   What would you do? What could you do?   Pharmaceutical Scientist, Donald Conlee faces this conundrum after he’s murdered and is administered his own “Awake”, super drug.    His death was only the beginning of his problems.   The Gatekeeper has given Donald a time limit to return his Zombie self to the ground – or else his soul can never gain access into Heaven.   To complicate matters,  he finds out that his murderer is at the funeral and his girlfriend is in grave danger.  How can a couple of disgruntle gravediggers and a hearse driver help Donald’s lost soul find the way?    Or maybe the real question is how can the spirit world defeat the living dead?  

You are cordially invited to Donald Conle…

The Undertaker vs Bryan Daniels at Wrestlemania 30

Wrestlemania 30

HIAC:  The Undertaker vs  Bryan Daniels

Set up:   Daniels turns on Kane, and they feud a bit until Daniels breaks Kane’s leg.   Undertaker comes to the aid of his brother, therefore setting up the Mania match, maybe even He11 in a Ce11 stipulation.   Kane “on crutches” is allowed at ringside, inside the “Cell”, in Undertaker’s corner.  Daniels freaks about it.   Now, in the end, it could all be a ploy by Daniels to have Kane placed inside the Cell, and Kane turns on this brother during the match.  In this situation, can Undertaker’s steak survive? 

What do you think?

Extreme Rising Tv Show

NOT SINCE ECW HAS A PRO WRESTLING COMPANY SPARKED SO MUCH INTEREST AND
FILLED LIVE VENUES UNTIL EXTREME RISING.



Philadelphia, PA -The fans demand a new pro wrestling Television
program that will be a true alternative to what is currently being
offered by the W.W.E. and TNA IMPACT. Extreme Rising comes to
fill a void in pro wrestling. When Extreme Championship Wrestling
closed in 2001, the fans were left with a lack of diverse choices in
pro wrestling programming. ECW was a unique underground subculture
where the misfits of wrestling entertained legions of fans every
week, and the fans contributed to make for one of a kind wrestling
events. Extreme Rising has captured the spirit and diversity of what
ECW was by utilizing the legends of Extreme, as well as the best
unsigned talent in the United States and Mexico. What started as an
"Extreme Reunion" on April 28, 2012 in Philadelphia, has turned into
an Extreme Rising and continues to rise.

With just five live events under their belt in 2012,…

You have an extensive history in the book/publishing business. Tell us about that.

I do indeed. After college I worked doing maintenance for a shopping mall in San Jose, CA, for three years, during which I made friends with the folks at the great Books Inc. store there. Books Inc. is a great store—it’s a regional chain, based in California (though at one time more widespread, when I was there they had stores in California and Arizona). But it was always privately owned, and each store was given a lot of latitude, so it was essentially a linked collection of independent bookstores, with some of the buying power of a chain. It was a great place to work, and the Books Inc. stores spawned some of the best booksellers in the business. I became paperback buyer there, then was offered the job of manager at the La Jolla store.

The southern CA and AZ stores were called Hunter’s Books, and the flagship store for them was in Beverly Hil…
