Ricky Harris Does Shabba Ranks – Def Comedy Jam

July 7th, 2014

*Language Warning

Ricky Harris and his infamous Shabba Ranks bit from the old school Def Comedy Jam.

I’ve had a few people message me over the last few months asking what happened to this video, as it used to be available on my YouTube channel. Long story short, it got blocked worldwide due to a copyright claim by Codeblack Films (Lionsgate). Truthfully, I didn’t fully understand their gripe. Not sure if they were trying to assert that Def Comedy Jam somehow infringes on Shaquille O’Neal’s All Star Comedy Jam, or if my video of Russell Simmons’ comedy show was somehow mistaken for his. But, whatever the claim, it was total bullshit in my opinion. My video was quietly streaming on YouTube, not monetized, not harming a soul. It was simply delighting fans of the old show in giving them an enjoyable piece of nostalgia. I personally don’t see the harm in that or how anyone anywhere loses anything because of it. To my knowledge, this episode is not available on any home release or any OnDemand web service. Fans have been looking for it for years. I lucked up and found it last year on an old VHS tape while cleaning out the storage unit of my late father who was also a big fan of the show.

After YouTube removed it I kind of just let it go and moved on. But, after getting several messages about it over the course of time from people who are disappointed it got taken down I developed a bit of a chip on my shoulder. If Codeblack (or whoever) wants to complain to YouTube and get a video blocked, more power to them. That’s their choice, and apparently, their privilege. But, this ain’t YouTube. I’m the bossman here, and I say ROLL TAPE!


LK eBay Blowout Sale Part II

June 19th, 2014

It’s that time again!

My living space has become cluttered with random objects that need to go. Just like a couple years ago, I’m in the process of throwing a bunch of stuff on eBay. No real goal in mind as with the fundraiser from 2012. This is strictly some late Spring Cleaning. Current list at posting date is not the end of the lineup. There will be more added in the coming days/weeks. Totally random stuff. No particular theme. But, who knows? You might just find something you’re interested in.

Any questions, shoot’em my way!

Happy buying!

Countdown to Autumn Equinox 2014

April 19th, 2014

9.22.14 10:29pm EDT

I cut my grass for the first time this season a couple days ago. Donned my cheap gardening hat, shades, white t-shirt, iPod, and fired up the lawn tractor after a six month break from the heat, humidity, and all the other inconveniences it brings with it.

As I rolled over my yard, spitting chopped up grass out the side of my 46″ mower deck, I reminisced. Although my iPod was blaring tunes into my ears, my mind wandered around memories of this past Fall and Winter seasons and reflected on all the good things. The cool, crisp air. Beautiful, vibrant colors. The sounds of leaves crunching under my feet as I walked over them. Football, college basketball, chili, Halloween, turkey, snow, cozy warm snuggles, good night sleeps, Santa’s big red ass, a New Year, my wedding anniversary and a trip to the mountains……….

Californian Spotted in Cameron’s Titanic

April 14th, 2014

I spent years thinking James Cameron completely ignored the existence of the “mystery ship” that watched the Titanic sink in his 1997 blockbuster film. While he omitted a key scene that included the Californian in the story, he did leave in the “Light on the Horizon”, albeit scarcely.

Have a look.

In Memory of The Ultimate Warrior

April 9th, 2014

Wow. I’m just stunned.

As I sit here and reminisce, reflecting on my childhood and all the things that came full circle with Warrior this past week, I’m just floored and blown away by what has transpired.

Hacking My Samsung Galaxy Note 3: Root, SafeStrap, Flash Recovery, Free WiFi Tether, Custom OS, Flash Player

December 13th, 2013

The Galaxy Note 3 is here! Well, you already knew that. But, happy to say it’s in my hands now. :D

The HTC DNA served me well over the past year, and other than one lone issue with the SIM card (which was easily corrected), I never had one problem with this phone. I upgraded solely because I felt like it. Just wanted a new device with a better camera and faster performance, and oh boy, did I ever score! The Note 3 is easily the best smartphone I have ever seen to date. This wasn’t just a modest upgrade from last year’s flagship device. It was a quantum leap. Boots up in mere seconds and never looks back. Never hangs or gets overloaded. Just an all-around badass. I won’t spend too much time going into the specs, as the link above will tell you all you need to know. For now, let’s get into what you’re here for. Let’s root this monster and remove the OTA shackles.

Grand Theft Auto V 5 PS3 Loading Story Mode Freezing Glitch SOLUTION

October 7th, 2013

Stuck on 43% complete on GTAV and story mode loading for hours? It happened to me too, and it absolutely sucks. At present there is no acknowledgement of the glitch from Rockstar, much less a fix. But, we do have a nice work-around!

I was able to track down a save file that’s 48% complete, and puts you just a couple missions after the 43.3% corruption glitch. I have resigned the file and made both a North American and European version. They’ve been completely decrypted and are free of their original profile stamps. All you have to do is download the zip, extract the folder to a flash drive, pop it in your PS3, copy it to your saved games, and enjoy not having to start all over.

North American version:

European version:

Little Mac vs. Mike Tyson 2013

September 26th, 2013

Little Mac vs. Mike Tyson on Fight Night Champion.

Got a little curious one night as to how The Dream Fight from the old school Punch Out might play out on a modern day boxing game. The results were amusing to me.

Bobby ‘The Brain’ Heenan Interview

September 9th, 2013

This is an interview with Bobby ‘The Brain’ Heenan, conducted by Between The Ropes from summer 2002, right around the release of Bobby’s first book “Bobby Heenan: Wrestling’s Bad Boy Tells All”.

The folks at Between the Ropes were kind enough to email me this interview some years ago after it had been cycled off their website. I always thought the discussion was intriguing and fun to listen to. I decided to upload it so fellow wrestling fans of the good ol’ days who enjoy listening to some of our favorite personalities tell their stories could add another memorable entry to their collection.

Topics discussed:

Bobby’s current life/health
Trouble with Rick Rude
Working with Gorilla Monsoon
Favorite/least favorite wrestlers he managed
Favorite moments of his career
How he developed his managing style
Thoughts on current wrestling product & state of the business
Why he decided to write an autobiography

Site Update — Issues With Contact Form Resolved

August 14th, 2013

I’ve been catching some feedback recently from visitors who’ve tried to email me using the Contact Form on the site. Looking into it, I found that the form reports to the user that the message was sent successfully, however, I never receive it.

After doing a little research I found an issue that several sites are having. I tweaked a few things in the code and the form is now working again.

My apologies to everyone who have attempted to message me and didn’t get a response. Especially to those of you who’ve messaged regarding the #LKdeal.

We’re back in business.
