Glow: Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling

The good old days when woman had their own wrestling federation and could beat the crap out of each other. Well that was the idea.

I was into just starting to get back into wrestling when GLOW started up. I think I may have watched one show….I think.  I do know that as much as knew that at the time the WWF was basically a male soap opera. I was not going to watch GLOW even for the ladies. So I can not even tell you what it was like, good or bad. But I can tell you that I am planning on watch the Netflix upcoming comedy series that takes a look at that time in wrestling history.

GLOW  is premiering on Netflix June 23.

GLOW tells the fictional story of Ruth Wilder (Brie), an out-of-work, struggling actress in 1980s Los Angeles who finds one last chance for stardom when she’s thrust into the glitter and spandex world of women’s wrestling. In addition to working with 12 Hollywood misfits, Ruth also has to compete with Debbie Eagan (Betty Gilpin) a former soap actress who left the business to have a baby, only to be sucked back into work when her picture perfect life is not what it seems. And at the wheel is Sam Sylvia (Marc Maron), a washed-up, B-movie director who now must lead this group of women on the journey to wrestling stardom.

Inspired by the short-lived, but beloved show from the 80s, GLOW tells the fictional story of Ruth Wilder (Alison Brie), an out-of-work, struggling actress in 1980s Los Angeles who finds one last chance for stardom. GLOW is created by Liz Flahive (Homeland, Nurse Jackie) and Carly Mensch (Nurse Jackie, Orange Is The New Black, Weeds). Orange Is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan and Tara Herrmann executive producers alongside Flahive and Mensch who are serving as showrunners.

Netflix Original Documentary: Get Me Roger Stone

After the 2016 election, people all over the world woke up to find that Donald J. Trump, New York real estate billionaire and reality TV star, succeeded in pulling off one of the greatest political upsets in history to become the 45th President of the United States. One man who wasn’t shocked – political consultant Roger Stone. A longtime Trump confidante and advisor, Stone said he always knew his celebrity pal was “prime political horse flesh.” Get Me Roger Stone traces the monumental impact that Stone, the youngest person called before the Watergate grand jury and a self-described “dirty trickster”, has made on modern GOP history — connecting Nixon, Roy Cohn and Reagan with SuperPACs, lobbying, the 2000 election, all the way to the nation’s first reality star President. A master of creating controversy and manipulating the media, Stone’s career is a window into the last 50 years of politics that led to this pivotal moment in history. The Netflix original documentary chronicles the high-living, low-down, self-proclaimed agent provocateur and the seismic changes he’s wrought in a political system.

Get Me Roger Stone is directed by Daniel DiMauro, Morgan Pehme, and Dylan Bank and executive produced by Blair Foster.

It’s GIRLBOSS Time

Okay I have no idea what this about. Well a girl who is her own boss. Yeah I know your thinking it’s more than that and of course it is, duh. But it does look interesting. Interesting enough for this 55 year old white dude to watch.

Girlboss is inspired by the New York Times best-selling book #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso, founder of the fashion brand Nasty Gal. The series centers on Amoruso (Britt Robertson), who began selling vintage clothes on eBay and, by the age of 27, had built the multi-million dollar fashion empire, Nasty Gal.

Girlboss is created by and executive produced by Kay Cannon (Pitch Perfect 1& 2, 30 Rock), who also serves as showrunner. Charlize Theron (Monster, Young Adult), Laverne McKinnon and Beth Kono of Denver & Delilah, Christian Ditter (How to Be Single) and Sophia Amoruso will also serve as executive producers. This is a Netflix production and there will be 13-half hour episodes.

Louis C.K – Netflix – Stand up Special

 

Louis C K is probably one of the most underrated comedians of the last 25 years. To see him, you would have no idea that there was such a talented comic genius lurking inside what  his fleshy exterior betrays to be a house dad from the burbs ‘. I mean no disrespect, but he does not have that hard living comedy look to him.

You saw George Carlin…..you knew he was comedy…….You saw Jerry Seinfeld…..you knew he was comedy…..Bill Maher……Jon Stewart…….Lewis Black…..Chris Rock….Dave Chapelle. Endless others They “looked” like comedy. Louis C K looks like you might bump into him in the paint aisle in Home Depot(Shameless unpaid plug) and you could have a nice conversation with him. Right up until the point he opened his mouth.

Did you happen to see him host SNL a while ago? Where his opening set took Pedophilia to task with a side splitting , jaw dropping opener of  humor and gasps? No?…..you missed out.

Special drops Apr.4th on Netflix. Can’t wait

The Trailer Park Boys- Season #11- Netflix Trailer

 

Well Folks. It’s that time of the year again. The winds of shit are on us once again. I suppose I should go back a bit. The Trailer Park Boys have always had a special place in my heart.I grew up about 30 minutes from the Trailer park they shot the first 2 seasons in. I’ve known scammers, thieves , fuck ups and park people and believe me when I tell you……..half the people in that show are based on real life folks.

Looks like the boys are going back to basics in this new Season and I’m pretty sure I just saw Ricky get shot in the nuts by a 3 year old……oh and Bull semen appears to play a large part in the new season. I say that with a straight face. and little fan fare because that’s a perfectly normal day in Sunnyvale Trailer Park.

New season drops this Friday folks. Get yourself an empty piss jug a few grams of weed, and strap in  for 13 episodes of “What the fuck did I just watch?!?”……You’ll thank me later. Trailer for the boys below.

 

Death Note, Who Lives and Who Dies

This is an live action version of the Japanese Death Note  manga series written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata. The story follows Light Yagami, a high school student who discovers a supernatural notebook from a Shinigami named Ryuk that grants its user the ability to kill anyone whose name and face he knows. The series centers around Light’s attempts to create and rule a world “cleansed of evil” as “God” using the notebook, and the efforts of a detective known as L to stop him.

I know very little of this series except that my son was a big fan of it. The clip below does peak my interest. But the real credit of this film will be him.

This Netflix original  version is directed by Adam Wingard (Blair Witch, You’re Next) and stars Nat Wolff (Paper Towns), Margaret Qualley (The Leftovers), Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out), Paul Nakauchi (Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End), Shea Whigham (American Hustle) and Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man).
