My UPN affiliate is down and not broadcasting at the moment. I'll be back next week. If it isn't up by next week, I'll do a 30 SECONDS TO FAME Workrate Report. Let me know how the Big Show title run is kicked off. Stupid UPN 65 Richmond.
Feel free give me guff about my TOP 100 ALBUMS of THE 70s list.
Either watch Velocity or Afterburn for your Smackdown Recaping needs.
As you were unable to do the WORKRATE REPORT, DEAN, I've posted a very special Smackdown! version of my Sarire column.
It's my first and possibly only one of those.
I'm no DEAN, but it's all I can do, to provide an alternative in his absense.
Since everyone else is doing it (ok, not EVERYONE, but...)
Vikings (3-7) - Where the hell has THAT team been? Badgers (6-6) - Bowl bound! Oh wait... Buffy 7... Earns Pi x 2 points...Uh...Not really sure what I'm supposed to thing...That was one friggin' weird episode...
Dean, the two things I remembered most about Smackdown that you'll wished you hadn't missed:
- Brock Lesnar with a SWEET F-5 on Big Show
- Eddie Guerrero, in his match against Kurt Angle, bringing two chairs into the ring, resulting in the ref getting rid of one while turning his back, thus allowing Eddie to hit Angle with the other. Eddie is GOD!
Oh yeah, the Al Wilson-Dawn Marie stuff too!
Also, Afterburn is the recap show. Velocity is the half-recap/half-matches Smackdown equivalent of Heat.
Originally posted by DarrylTheHitmanIf this is a stupid question then my apologies but where do I find that Top 100 Albums of the 1970s list? Is it on deathvalleydriver.com or does that site only cover wrestling?
DR: It's like this forum if it were all combined to one board. http://deathvalleydriver.com/wwwboard/message/?201985
Hi Dean, just saw that list of yours. Uh, Where's...
Simon and Garfunkle: Bridge Over Troubled Water Meat Loaf: Bat Out of Hell (DO NOT LAUGH!!!) The Beatles: Abby Road -or- Let It Be The Police: Regatta De Blanc Tubeway Army: Replicas Gary Numan: Pleasure Principal
...I demand a recount! But you do have The Buzzcocks and Modern Lovers in a top 10 list, so you are not a bad person.
Dean, love your work man! But ya did miss a few on yor top 100 of the 70's. Might I suggest: Eagles: Desperado Foghat: Live Bad Company: Bad Company Starz: Colosseum Rock Wille Nelson: Red Headed Stranger Kiss : Alive Bee Gees: Main Course Maynard Ferguson: Chameleon Andy Gibb: Shadow Dancing Pink Floyd: Dark Side of the Moon Lynnyrd Skynnyrd: Second Helping
It was nice to see Joy Division crack the top 10. Did you happen to see 24 Hour Party People? If not, rent it as soon as it comes out.
But you forgot a record that deserved to be in the Top 5:
Nazareth - Hair of the Dog
From the infamous Wrestleline SS interview:
DTD: If you were to make changes in WCW, if you were in charge and not Ric Flair, what would they be?
SS: I'd get rid of all the old guys, and push the talent that has waited to get the push. The things they are doing, it's back in the 1980s. It's just bad, man. Flair doesn't even deserve to be on the show. You've got to get rid of all the old guys. Like what Vince did, they started pushing guys. Nobody knew who The Rock was 2 years ago. He made The Rock. Now The Rock just did Saturday Night Live. You've got to start with the young talent, talent people can relate to. Who are we trying to relate to if we've got a 50 year old man out there? Are we trying to relate, so a 50 year people and above will go out and buy a f*cking little toy? That ain't gonna happen. It's a f*cking joke.

DR: RED HEADED STRANGER is #6. Kiss ALIVE is on the list. SECOND HELPING is on there too. I thought about the PLEASURE PRINCIPLE but side two is soo hit and miss. I do love "Engineers". REGATTA D' BLANC is good but ZENYATTA MONDATTA is better so I opted against. The probelm with HAIR OF THE DOG is that you have that whole record past the title song. I pussed out on the ABBA and the Brothers Gibb. The rest of the records I hate.:)
I remember those old school vignettes of Waylon Mercy. He would end the vignettes by holding both his hands out (like the "you're in good hands" insurance commercials) and eerily say, "Lives are gonna be in Waylon Mercy's hands.
