WRESTLING ROAD TRIP!!!

There is no better way to figure out the pulse of America than getting out on the highway and interviewing people at every turn and side road. In two weeks I will be making a final shoot for the STRONGHOLD documentary with a renowned cameraman/producer to see how many men we can get to wrestle on the spot, or at least talk about it. Today I went out and did some location scouting for our trip, and nabbed this interview with two men at an Indian Trading Post. I also set up an interview with several guys at a tattoo place, and they said they'll even wrestle on camera! Awwwwwesome.

I've done many street interviews for the film, even pulled guys out of bars to wrestle on camera, all to prove that many men think alike regardless of sexuality.

Stay tuned...

Okie Chokie

Here is a still from one of the many hot wrestling clips in the STRONGHOLD documentary that I shot at the 2006 Okie Rumble. You may know Mark(top) and Von (bottom). Here Mark demonstrates a front sleeper in all of its air-chokin' breath-controllin' glory. Did you know that choking and strangling were popular holds in Ancient Greek wrestling? Isn't it beautiful!

Read an entire article on it, entitled "Submission Fighting and the Rules of Ancient Greek Wrestling."

Say What?

I've dreaded working on this short little fun piece for the documentary for a long time, because I knew I'd have to listen to..............ahh, can't tell you. It would spoil it! Hmmm, who am I on the phone with? Did the conversation make me happy?

Actually, it did. Twice.

U.S. Men's Olympic Volleyball Team Short Shorts

This came at the most opportune moment, as I was trying to figure out a way to end a segment in the documentary about people having a problem with short shorts, etc. This is my response.
