I mentioned in my last blog that I got a very small part in a Movie being shot in Calgary; I shot my one scene yesterday. I had a great time and cannot put over enough how nice everyone was. There were seemingly hundreds of people running around doing thousands of jobs and everyone was polite, helpful and courteous. On the odd chance that they read this a special thank you to Steve the stunt coordinator for getting me the part and extending my scene a bit, a huge thanks to Tahmoh for being extremely cool and easy to work with, and to the poor women whose name I can't remember (sorry) who had to straighten my hat, and wipe dust off my butt between each take, my apologies and my gratitude. I have no details on how or when people will be able to see the film but if and when I do I will be sure to share it with everyone. My understanding is that an Independent film like this goes to a film festival at some point and then depending on how it shows, it will be distributed accordingly: Theatrical release, DVD release, etc. The film is called Painkillers, so keep your eyes and ears open for news, and keep your fingers crossed I don't end up on the cutting room floor.
A lot of people are asking me to comment on the CM Punk situation and the rumors that he quit WWE on Monday. I have no idea what really happened so I don't want to comment to much. I am not a big fan of quitting and walking out on anything (if that is in fact what he did) but until I know the whole story it's pretty hard to pick sides. In the end Punk's got to do what he feels is best for him and WWE has to do what's best for the company. Hopefully they can find a balance that works for both, because Punk is a big part of why I enjoy watching Monday nights.
Podcasts: I love audio podcasts but my God are they getting out of control. There are so many good ones out there that I just can't keep up. As you should know by now I do a podcast with Bryan Alvarez for the Wrestling Observer website, every other week. Since I contribute to the site I get a comp membership and can listen to all of their audio content which is quite a lot. In addition to those shows, I'm a big fan of Talk is Jericho and the Steve Austin Show which are both on PodcastOne. On top of those there is MLW Radio which has regular shows as well as the Jim Cornette Experience (which I will be a guest on next week). You can add in The Art of Wrestling with Colt Cabana, and Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis's podcast, which I confess I haven't even listened to yet, and in the next week or two Jim Ross will be joining the PodcastOne team. While I am happy for everyone's success and have enjoyed most if not all of the shows I've listened to, there are only so many hours in the day and I'm afraid I'm getting to the point where I'm over whelmed and I'm going to have to get very picky about which shows I download and listen too.
I've started watching the TV show Haven. Most of you have probably heard of the show since Edge a cast member and tweets about it all the time. Like with podcasts I like to support my friends so I decided to give the show a try and purchased Season 1 on iTunes. I was quickly hooked and I am really enjoying the show. I'm a few episodes into season 2 and looking forward to Edge's debut later this season. If you are in the US and want to check out the show it is on Netflix. Sadly it's not on Netflix in Canada but it can be purchased quite cheaply on iTunes or DVD. Discover Haven!
