A few weeks ago, Vince and I had a segment on our podcast about a bizarre series of photos and videos featuring the Undertaker and Michelle McCool in a pool with a tiger at a tiger day spa? in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. At the time, we weren’t sure what the purpose of this was; they talked about tigers needing us to save them and if we don’t save the tiger we won’t rest in peace and if we save the tiger we can save the world. While they didn’t touch on HOW we save the tiger or explain why they were in a pool with the tiger, the video managed to make a minor splash across the internet with the “campaign” being called one of the purest things ever, and Undertaker being celebrated for showing his softer side.
Later that week, I tried to watch Netflix’s “Tiger King” series and this is when things started making more sense. One of the facilities featured in the series is none other than Myrtle Beach Safari, which is where the McCools climbed into a pool with a tiger and blessed the internet with their plea to save the tiger in order to save ourselves. The photos and videos were posted on Undertaker’s, Michelle’s, and Myrtle Beach Safari’s instagram pages just days before Tiger King premiered on Netflix.
Doc Antle, founder of Myrtle Beach Safari, whose doctor status is questionable – he claims to have earned a doctorate in medicine while he was studying in Asia (this is straight off Myrtle Beach Safari’s website) – is not a fan of Tiger King. More specifically, he’s upset over his portrayal in the series, stating that it’s sensationalized and inaccurate and paints him in a bad light. Considering his displeasure with the series, and the fact that the Undertaker tiger photos were posted right before the series premiered, was this an attempt from Doc Antle to get ahead of the series and prove that he truly cares about saving the tiger?
Don’t get me wrong; I loved my wedding, but there were a lot of opinions and personalities thrown in that weren’t helpful. Everyone’s egos got in the way and caused stupid amounts of stress. Several of my family members complained on Facebook or confronted me months later about minuscule details that I did or didn’t do correctly at my wedding.
It was all a buncha bullshit.
So when my sister asked me to be her maid of honor, I couldn’t help but be a little trepidatious. I’ve never been in a wedding besides my own so I didn’t know what to expect (still don’t), and I had a bad taste in my mouth from my wedding night. I knew it would be a good experience but there was part of me that was dreading the drama that comes with weddings.
We went to Chicago over the weekend for an AAW show (see video below for a recap), but one of the highlights, if not THE highlight of the trip was an impromptu lunch at a vegetarian Mexican restaurant.
Quesadilla La Reina del Sur entered our timeline when we needed it most; we had been shopping for a few hours and needed a quick, light meal since we had plans on eating a larger meal in a few hours. Those plans ended up falling through, but it was for the better since the food at La Reina was very filling and kept us satisfied until later in the night.
The restaurant is located on a seemingly quiet street corner, tucked in next to a few other Mexican eateries, a neon shop (insert an “it’s lit” joke), and neighboring a residential area. The inside is small with a handful of tables and a service counter. We sat near the door where an array of plants provided a pleasant background for my meal.
I’ve never been to the mall before it opened, so that was an adventure in an of itself. There were so many mall walkers! For some reason, I always thought that was just a trope put on by movies and TV shows. Now I’m considering going there to walk on these ice-cold Wisconsin days. There was also a yoga class happening on our way out so I’ll have to research that too. I would love if it’s just a group of friends who get together to do yoga on Sundays at the mall.
Back to the actual class. We awkwardly waited outside of Sephora with a few others who were going to take the class. I think they opened the doors a little late, but we quickly ushered inside, checked in, and sat at tiny tables of 4 that were crowded with bowls of water, mirrors, paper, and other items that we would need during the class. It was a little cramped, but not completely uncomfortable.
Vince and I started a wrestling-themed YouTube Channel called “Babyface Bullies”. !!
We upload a weekly video with either Vince or me in front of the camera, sometimes both of us. I edit the videos, Vince makes the thumbnail, and we work together to add in jokes, sounds, and anything else we want to include.
We’re just two fans looking to laugh over one of our favorite things: wrestling.
As of right now, all our videos are under 8 minutes long making it easy to watch when you have some free time. Give them a thumbs up, leave a comment, give us some feedback, tell us what you want to see!
I wrote this short post for a travel writing class I recently took. The assignment was to write 300 words or less (I think I went a little over) about a location without using generic words such as “interesting, good, great” etc. It was a challenge but I really enjoyed the assignment and my finished post.
As you walk through the French Quarter, you’re immersed in a setting that piques all your senses. You see the past and present meet right in front of your eyes, with old, weathered yet colorful buildings right next to flashing neon and city skyscrapers. You feel the humidity in the air that magnifies the coolness in the winter and shellacs a layer of sweat on you in the summer. The sound of music, bustling people, and horse hooves tickle your ear drums, and the scent of creole food, sugary drinks, and waste from previously mentioned horses wafts into your nose. What do you taste? That part is up to you, but the possibilities are endless. New Orleans is a city unlike any other, and if you’re lucky (or unlucky), you may even have your sixth sense activated by one of its many resident spirits; and no, I’m not talking about booze-based spirits.
Sing it with me: 🎶Make my wish come true // All I want for Christmas // is you 🎶
And by “you” I mean Christkindlmarket Milwaukee (obviously; what else would the song be about?). Christkindlmarket debuted their first out-of-state site this year, opening for the season on November 17 in Milwaukee. About 25 vendors set up shop directly outside the Fiserv Forum (which is another new site to visit in downtown Milwaukee), and will remain open every day through New Year’s Eve.
Christkindlmarket began in Chicago in 1996 by German American Events, LLC and found a new (and still current) home at Daley Plaza in 1997. Operating as Chicago’s largest open-air market, Christkindlmarket takes up the whole plaza with food, drink, music, and shopping for those one-of-a-kind holiday gifts. Talk about one-stop shopping; big box stores have nothing on ol’ Christkindlmarket!
Halloween! Is over. But now we’re in this weird lull until Thanksgiving and Christmas, so why not keep celebrating Halloween? Please just watch my makeup tutorial because it’ll teach you how to look scary snatched all year long.
Another week in the life of Miz and Maryse and guess what?! More shenanigans! This week we were graced by the presence of Miz’s dad and Avril Lavigne, but we’ll get to that a bit later.
The show opens with Maryse’s mom, Margot, giggling over Miz’s photos from the last episode (nice callback, USA Network). You remember the ones: “implied” nude, but Miz went full-on nude in a hilarious miz-understanding (if you don’t, go read my last post!). Margot makes fun of Miz’s flat ass and laughs at him, but in a cutesy way; you know, because of her accent and all. People with accents are always cute! Unless they have midwest accents, like Miz’s dad but again, we’ll get to that later.
The premiere episode of the long-awaited series “Miz and Mrs.” did not disappoint (seriously, I’ve been seeing ads for this show since well before Wrestlemania so it’s about time the show actually aired). I was also pleasantly surprised by the series’ Wikipedia page that all the episode titles for this season are as clever and/or punny as “A Simple Mizunderstanding” because get it, Miz … mizunderstanding … as in, misunderstanding … wait why wasn’t it Mrs.understanding … sexist!
