1. Ever since I read The Illuminatus Trilogy! by Robert Anton Wilson and Robert Shea, I have held a special mystical affinity for the numbers 5, 17, 23, and 40. The Chinese people in this note will point out that 40 is a very unclean number. Those hip would know that the man who first told the legendary William S. Burroughs who popularize said 23 Meme, died a vicious death, so there’s more than a 23% chance I will be cursed by this decision~!
3. Even though she is a Myspace and Facebook friend now, I once bore a grudge against Margaret Cho over what I thought to be a racist joke about woks. We’re good now.
4. As an elementary school kid, I thought RuPaul was a fine woman. Then I found out RuPaul was born male. That said, shi has a much better sense of style than me, and I am almost sure shi is the reincarnation of Aleister Crowley. See the Book of the Law for clues (Liber Al Vegis). If anyone can bring the next Aeon for humanity, it would have to be RuPaul.

Effective midnight tonight, those with Time Warner Cable systems will no longer have access to Viacom networks, which includes SpikeTV, the home for Total Nonstop Action’s iMPACT. Apparently a deal between the two companies, which has been negotiated over several months but recently stalled, could not be reached. Among the other networks that will be lost to TWC customers are the various channels from MTV, VH-1, Nickelodeon, as well as Comedy Central, CMT, and TV Land.
Update: The channels are staying on the air. See this report on the Wrestling Observer.
On this episode of the show I take part in the TapOut Season Two conference call from last Wednesday. Find out how they select fighters and gyms to highlight, and their thoughts on the controversy of fighters sandbagging records.
