Wrestling or the War?

As you know if you follow this blog, I have talked to tons of guys at bars about wrestling, and even got some of them to go outside and wrestle for the documentary. Recently I went to a bar and spoke with an army recruiter about wrestling, and the war. You can listen to the audio clip I recorded the next day detailing what happened.

So, which topic is safer to talk about with a stranger at a bar: wrestling, or the war?

Gay Straight Guys

This has got to be one of the funniest comedy skits I have ever seen, and is right in line with the guys that I speak to at local redneck bars. You'll love this!

LEECHES, SWIMMERS, and WRESTLERS, Oh MY!


If you ever want to see one of the most homoerotic movies with guys that all look like wrestlers, (though they are swimmers in the movie), get "Leeches!". The camera pans along tons of guys showering, sleeping, taking off their shirts, literally all throughout the film, and most of the time they slow the camera down. The premise of the movie is guys on a swim team taking steroids which ends up creating super large sucking leeches that even crawl and attack them on land. One of the main stars is Josh Henderson, who played a hunky teen neighbor and love interest of one of the wive's daughters on Desperate Housewives.

What does this have to do with wrestling? Probably nothing, except they all look like wrestlers!

Bit by Bit, Piece by Piece


That is how a film is made. And boy do I have lots of bits! Here is a picture of me in front of a large cork board I put up in my back room, now referred to as STRONGHOLD central, where I review parts of the script. Each page can last anywhere from 1 minute to 5 minutes. One of the most difficult tasks over the past few months has been how to best present all of the interviews and footage and materials I've acquired. How and when is the time right to introduce this topic or person, etc, etc. I recenly had a breakthrough in the script to help facilitate some of those issues. I'm being so secretive here. Smile. You can watch a little video tour I put together of the script room here.

Anyways, now you know why I've been so busy. It really sucks though, I have not wrestled in like 5 months, but right now my allergies are killing me so. If I'm going to be sleepered, I at least want to start out breathing! Vic
