No, DO Fig-4 Your Legs!

I thought people might get a kick out of this. Today on AOL I noticed this headline and article citing "Don't cross your legs in a Fig-4." Of course they were talking about interview etiquette, not the wrestling hold. But I totally disagree with them. I think you should cross your legs like that, or sometimes outstretch them, cross the ankles, then slowly open and snap your thighs shut. All of this while looking at the hopefully male interviewer's eyes and repeating, "I REALLY hope I get this job, sir."

Time Won't Give Me Time

Well, it's been over two months since I wrote a blog entry. As you may already know, finalizing the STRONGHOLD documentary has kept me very busy. At about Christmas time, the film clocked in at 2 hours and 40 minutes. This is great if you like wrestling, but film festivals and TV would rather have a more condensed version. So for the past several weeks I have painstakingly removed, shorted, reincorporated, and rewritten a few pieces to bring it to 2 hours and 5 minutes. This is the length of Michael Moore's Sicko and Fahernheit 911.

Now I am beginning to air the film to test audiences. Just last week I watched it with my non-gay, non-wrestler roommate. I paced the kitchen out of his view while he watched it intently. Next I will pick about five wrestlers to watch it, and then some more non-wrestler, but interested men.
