1244 - The End

Today is the beginning of a new year. The beginning of a fresh new slate. The beginning of another cycle.

But today is also an ending. An ending that I had put off doing for quite some time, but it needs to be done.

Today, I write the final page of the original DTM Blog. 

As of just an hour or so ago, my current blog, The Twisted Realm of DTM, had just surpassed 1200 blog posts. Eventually, it won't be long before that number surpasses the number of posts made here. And while I would very much like to stretch this up to a nice round number like 1250, the simple truth is that it's time to formally, officially, finally close the book on the original DTM Blog.

The DTM Blog represents something of a transitional phase in my web presence, for lack of a better term. It was originally supposed to be a companion piece to my old website, the DTM Webstation. But somewhere along the way, the Blog ended up getting more of my attention than the Webstation. Maybe it was the ease of use. Maybe it was the lack of hassle in updating templates and uploading pages upon pages worth of content and hope all the links worked properly. All I know is that somewhere along the way, the Webstation evetually went the way of the doo-doo and my focus was on this blog.

Of course, it eventually got to a point where the Tripod blogging software wasn't going to suffice given the slightly more ambitious plans I was going for. I was about to post videos around 2009 and the cumbersome editor wasn't going to cut it. Someone had suggested the Blogger site and I made an account there. The end result is two blogs; The Twisted Realm of DTM and the DTM Review Archive.

With those blogs, I could do a lot more than I could on the Tripod space... and it was also much easier and bearable to embed videos there than here. For a while, I managed both Twisted Blog (as it was known at the time) and this blog, but the Twisted Blog eventually took precedence and in April 2010, I formally retired the DTM Blog, relegated it to an archive of older works. 

How fitting is it that we formally end DTM Blog at the start of a new year. And while the retirement of DTM Blog is unfortunate, it also means paving the way for a brand new slate. The Twisted Realm of DTM is going to change in a major way down the line, the video content is going to be restructured, and perhaps most ambitiously, this old Tripod space might get new blood injected into it. It's all in the idea phase, but at the same time, I can't help but feel excited by the whole deal.

As it is, DTM Blog will remain up for as long as it stays up. I have no intention of pulling the blog down. I have no intention of shutting the space down. If you want to check back on older postings, then knock yourselves out. But as far as NEW content goes... that's out of the question.

To everyone who has ever taken the time to check out some of my written ramblings and whatnots, I thank you for your time and your indulgence. I sincerely hope that you've gotten a little something out of these ramblings because I've certainly got something far more substantial than anything imaginable. It's been a thrill and a hell of a ride, but now we've come to our last stop.

The book is closed. Thanks for stopping by.

1243 - Is This Blog Retired Or Just Tired?
Topic: Web Presence News

Surprise, surprise. Roughly two years after I retired this blog, I'm still posting. Probably because I would very much like to close this thing out on 1250. Possibly.

You'll probably notice on the front page something about a restoration due on a date that has long passed. While I would blame it on procrastination that the due date was missed, the truth was that I never knew about the due date; a friend of mine had temporary access to the blog space and uploaded the page without my knowing. He meant no harm, but I did have to take back some control.

So despite the bold proclamation, there is no planned "restoration" or whatever the case has been. I still haven't even touched the 100megsfree5 space that used to be the Webstation. If something does come to mind on a archival restoration, you'll find out here... or on the other blog.

Will post a couple more times here before we "officially" close the book on the original DTM Blog.

Later.

1242 - ReDesign? You Don't Say...
Topic: Blog Servicing
Updated the visual styling of this old blog... working out the kinks, so expect several shifts in appearance until I find a style that works.

Posted by dtm666 at 1:50 AM EDT
1241 - Surprise update... shocking, isn't it?
Mood:  surprised
Topic: Web Presence News

Your eyes do not deceive you. This is an actual update after several months of not updating and after several more months of retiring this blog.

 

Before anyone asks, yes, this blog is still very much retired. No, I will not be returning to regular updating of this blog. And no, it's not going anywhere until Tripod deems it necessary to shut this place down and make room for whatever funny ideas they have going on. And no doubt once that happens... gone for good, I suppose. Tripod never had any decent archiving options here as far as blogging goes, which is a bit of a shame.

 

So I guess I should probably bring some people up to date since the last time I made an update here;

  1. My current blog, The Twisted Realm Of DTM, can be found here. Originally, that was going to be the name of my personal site, but somewhere along the way, I decided that maintaining a website, even on a free space littered with countless ads, is too much work with little return. So I've opted to settle exclusively on making the blog my focal point. I've been uploading quite a few old stuff there and it makes for much more convenient navigating of specific items, such as YouTube videos and the like. And for a blog that has only been around for a couple years, it's already amassed over five-hundred entries. Pretty impressive numbers. In any case, this is where I'm doing all my updates.
  2. Subsequently, I also have a second blog called DTM Review Archive (click here), which is essentially a working-in-progress archive of all the reviews I have done thus far, whether they'd be game reviews, movie reviews, or whatnot. It's worth checking out if you have the chance, although I still post stuff on the regular blog.
  3. I've slowly begun posting a number of YouTube videos since 2009 (channel is crisisded). Generally no real theme or anything, it comprises game reviews, video commentaries, vlogs, and other random crap that I can put up there. One of the major reasons I switched from Tripod to Blogger is because of the relative ease Blogger offered in embedding videos or inputting any kind of HTML code; Tripod's a little more archaic in nature and was a pain in the ass to embed anything of the sort into the code.
  4. Alternatively, I've also opened up a Dailymotion account (can be found here) in case the YouTube account goes belly-up. Not much content there at the moment, but it's something.
And that's all the "up-to-speed" stuff that I can think of... as far as this web space goes... the blog is still going to be here. I'm also considering moving the old Bite archives to this site (I've kept the pages and no doubt will keep the formatting as is.) There's other stuff planned, but mostly background stuff.

Truth be told, I would like to sneak a post or two here from time to time... but we'll see in the long run.

So again, thanks for the memories. Maybe I'll come again soon... maybe.

1240 - Remembering The Macho Man
Topic: McWrestling

I was just getting back from personal business when I got the news that Randy Savage had died. It was a shock to hear about that. And perhaps, it's one that hurts quite a bit... because this was not just a moderately successful superstar wrestler nor is he someone dabbled in the main event scene. This is a legend... one of the true greats in professional wrestling. Someone who was as close to being the Total Package as you can get when it comes to that form of sports entertainment. He had the look, he had the voice, he had the moves, and most importantly, he had the charisma and the personality that really made him stand out and made people take notice... and clearly, a lot of people took notice for him to have gotten the name recognition that he did... and deservingly so.

Whether it was his classic matches or his classic insane rambling promos that half the time we didn't understand what he was saying but who cares because this guy's cool... or whether it was his classic Slim Jim commercials that actually got me to try out Slim Jims for the first and possibly last time... or his three-minute-cameo in the first Spider-Man movie nine years ago... or hell, even his rap album that he tossed out around the same time... it was one of those cases where no matter how good or how bad the final product turned out, you couldn't help but feel that he gave it his all and that he gave it his best shot... and I think that effort and that passion showed in a lot of the stuff he did. For the most part, his stuff never felt phoned in... even during recent years when he was showing off his new action figure at the Comicon or cutting a promo for the WWE All-Stars game.

This is a man who deserved to be in that Hall of Fame of theirs... and the only sad thing is that he never got that chance due to whatever petty politics that held off such a thing.

Thanks for the memories, "Macho Man" Randy Savage. You shall be missed.

Can I get a "Oooooooo Yeeeaaaaahhhhhhhh!"

1239 - Epilogue
Topic: Blog Servicing

Back in April 2010, I made a post announcing that I would be retiring the original DTM Blog in favor of the Twisted Blog of DTM, which started up several months prior. While there have been a couple posts made since then with broken promises of adding a proper epilogue, I've since deleted them since nothing came of the plans I had for closing out something that has been part of my life for five long years.

So rather than end with a bang, this blog goes out with a whimper...

Not that it means anything, but it's really sad that something that's kept me relatively sane for a good chunk of my life isn't going to get a proper closure. On the other hand, though, it's not going away anytime soon and I can at least look back at some of my earlier thoughts from the time. It might be worth looking into one of these days.

For the few people who somehow followed this blog, thanks for sticking around. And for those just reading this, hopefully you'll be able to keep an open mind on the various ramblings of a man who has been on both ends of the emotional depression meter. And I hope you follow along to the Twisted Blog, where things aren't any better.

It's been a great ride. Thanks for coming along.

1238 - TNA DESTINATION X 2010 - PPV PREDICTIONS
Topic: PPV Predictions

It's been a good while since I last did predictions for a PPV (the last being Bragging Rights 2009) and a good LONG while since I last did a TNA Pay-Per-View (TNA's Turning Point 2007). Since I have been following some TNA Impact (now that I have access to Spike TV), I'd figured I go ahead and shoot out some random picks for the upcoming PPV... even if I don't intend on watching it. These are all mostly wild guesses and it should be fun to see how many picks I get wrong.

All listed matches are from Wikipedia since TNA's official site for the PPV doesn't include listed matches. Fortunately, none of these matches include the Nasty Boys.

TNA Knockout's Championship
Tara (c) vs. Daffney

Victoria got snubbed in WWE's list. So I guess I'll go with "Tara" retaining her title.

Pick: Tara
Winner:

Ladder Match for the No. 1 Contendership to the TNA X-Division Championship
Kazarian vs. Daniels vs. Brian Kendrick vs. Amazing Red
Four-way ladder match for a title shot? I'm sold! This is a hard one to guess, but if I'm going to shoot off a wall or something, I'll probably pick Brian Kendrick for the simple reason that he's been in WWE. And apparently TNA management has a hard-on for former WWE guys at the moment... which is all the more amazing that AJ Styles is still the World champion.

Pick: Brian Kendrick
Winner:

Kevin Nash/Eric Young vs. Scott "Alka" Hall/Sean "Syxx-Pac Sucks" Waltman
There are wonderful stipulations behind this match. If Nash/Young win, then Hall/Waltman leave TNA for good... which is, of course, a lie since nobody is done for good; just ask Ric Flair. If Hall/Waltman wins, they get TNA contracts. Given that the banishment deal will never stick, I'd say Hall/Waltman wins this one... a sad proposition to be sure.

Pick: Hall/Waltman
Winners:

TNA World Tag-Team Championship Match
Matt Morgan and Hernandez (c) vs. Beer Money, Inc. (Robert Roode and James Storm)
Beer Money takes the titles... I've really very little to say on this match.

Pick: Beer Money
Winner:

Kurt Angle vs. Ken Anderson
Oh goody. It's a match between two former WWE guys. This really screams TNA in my mind. Although to be fair, I don't actually recall these guys ever duking it out, so this could be a nice one. Too bad the feud and build-up was pretty much botched, with Kurt Angle getting several "victories" over Anderson. With that said, Anderson wins this one.

Pick: Ken Anderson
Winner:

TNA X-Division Championship Match
Doug Williams (champion) vs. Shannon Moore
The champ retains.

Pick: Doug Williams
Winner:

Ultimate X Match for the No. 1 Contendership to the TNA World Tag-Team Championship
Generation Me vs. Motor-City Machine Guns
I'm flipping a coin here... so Generation Me.

Pick: Generation Me
Winner:

NWA World Heavyweight Title
AJ Styles (champion) vs. Abyss
Even with the power of the universe and Hulk Hogan at his disposal, Abyss isn't going to win this one.

Pick: AJ Styles
Winner:

Later.

1237 - Coming Attractions In April (and Beyond)
Topic: Comic Talk
Reposted from Twisted Blog of DTM 
 
I'm trying to get some shit together as the search for work continues... in the meantime, I'm using whatever free time I feel like wasting on pointless stuff to produce some stuff in hopes of having something to post throughout the month of April (and possibly May) and this will hopefully lead to me having stuff to upload rather than nothing when the time comes.

So here're the plans:

- The Twisted Realms site (the place where I store all the fanfics, commentaries, written diatrabes, reviews, and whathaveyou) is undergoing final touch-ups and I'm hoping to get the bastard ready by April. It's mostly quick fixing of links and making sure everything works properly. The plan, once the site is up, is to have updates every two weeks, with the sole exception of the Bite commentaries, which will still maintain its monthly schedule.

- Speaking of the Bite commentary, I'm holding out posting the new commentary until Wrestlemania Weekend... mostly because I haven't written it yet. I'll also have my predictions for the show up when all the matches are said and done.

- I've been sporadically posting some game reviews on my GameFAQs account and have several more down the pike. Among other games, including some Sega love, I'm hoping to finish off the row of Mega Man Classic reviews (the main numerical series) before I post my written reviews of Mega Man 9 and 10. Yeah, I want to post these in order.

- There might be a couple video reviews and a vlog in the works. I have one or two ready, but I'm holding those off until much later.

And that's about it, really. I'll let you know if there's more stuff to add.

Later.

1236 - Some Notes on RAW
Topic: RAW Bytes
Reposted from Twisted Blog of DTM: 
 
Well... after reading the results for Monday's Impact (which had a main-event between AJ Styles and Jeff Hardy, along with Bischoff getting a hair cut or something), I decided to take a chance and watch RAW, which was to feature three Wrestlemania rewind matches and some contract signing between two old guys. Some quick notes and thoughts on the show:

- Speaking of old guys, here comes Stone Cold to cut another insightful promo. Strange to see the word ass bleeped out here... also strange that Stone Cold didn't really do anything... except talk. Still, it was good to see Austin in good form... as good as he could at this point.

- Big Show defeats John Cena with a punch. Has things gotten so bad that the guy who used to kill people with a chokeslam has to resort to a finisher as lame as a punch? Granted, I'm sure he could punch real good. But punching real good doesn't sell sports-entertainment PPVs. Other than that... well, it's a Cena match. You Cena One Match, You Cena Nuff.

- Maryse beats Kelly Kelly Kelly Kelly and more interchangeable Divas show up to have a catfight or something... I don't know. I was barely paying attention. The only reason I stuck around is because Maryse is quebecois or something.

- Hey, did you know that former WWE Women's Champ Victoria and current TNA Knockout Tara Lisa Marie commented on her apparent snub on her former employer's list of 25 most impactful women? I got a quick look at the list and... wow, some names just don't belong. That's for another blog post.

- Chris Jericho deliberately loses the match against Shawn Michaels by counting himself out... only to get ambushed by Edge. A semi-interesting match, but really meh. The truly sad thing is that I was more intrigued by a three-way match between a bunch of guys I barely recognized than I was a match between two guys who, despite being capable of putting on great matches, have already wrestled each other more times than I can count.

- The match between HHH and RKO ended in a no-contest when Ted DiBiase Jr. and Cody Runnels interfered. Oh yeah, the irish guy showed up too.

- The contract is signed between Vince and Bret (a no-holds-barred match, no doubt not featuring the return of Zeus) and Bret reveals that his leg is just fine - the whole injury having been a staged attempt to put Vince in a false sense of superiority. I guess if you saw that whole deal and though it was real, then you're an idiot. I guess Vince isn't a genius because he never saw that coming.

Overall... this is your usual RAW show. A great big glass of MEH.

1235 - Thoughts on TNA's Impact... WHAT?
Mood:  irritated
Topic: RAW Bytes

Yes, this past Monday, rather than watching two hours of WWE RAW building up towards the climatic Cena vs. McMahon match (that sucked), I decided to give TNA the benefit of the doubt and tune in to their debut episode of Monday Nitro... er, I mean, Monday Night Impact.

Unsurprisingly, Impact pulled a 1.0 rating while WWE pulled a 3.x rating. So much for the war, huh?

But what about the show itself? Surely, TNA must have learned from their fiasco on January 4 (their first Monday show) and produced a much better show, right? Surely, they have come up with the best possible card to steal away WWE's massive audience... right?

WRONG.

Some quick thoughts, in no particular order:

- So they tease the giveaway of the Hogan/Abyss vs Flair/Styles main event at the start of the show... then Sting makes his return and beats up the good guys (that would be Hogan/Abyss) and Flair/Styles join in. Hogan then declares they'll have a match with No-DQs or something. And of course, Hogan/Abyss win that match with Jeff Hardy later making his return to TNA... two months after making his return to TNA... WHAT THE FUCK?

- And oh yeah, whenever he gets the chance, Abyss shows off his WWE Hall of Fame ring... in your dreams, Abyss. 

- RVD makes his "long-awaited" debut by beating Sting in a quick match... and then Sting beats up RVD for 10 minutes before getting into a scuffle with Hulk Hogan. Way to push your new signee, guys. FUCKING GENIUS.

- Doug Williams retained his X Division title over Christopher Daniels and Kazarian in a pretty decent match. Quite possibly the only real highlight in the entire show, which is a disappointment because it shows how much these guys really figure into the equation when they're being pushed aside to make time for the old farts. Of course, Bischoff soonafter declares that Williams will defend his title against Shannon Moore, who still has that stupid punk look to him... meh, it's better than 3 Count or Mattitude, I guess.

- Some ladies wrestle for some tag titles or something. I really don't pay too much attention... but if it's any consolation, these women can actually put on a watchable match, which is more than I can say for the interchangeable Barbie dolls calling themselves Divas.

- So when Jeff Jarrett isn't flipping burgers or cleaning bathrooms, he's having horrible matches with Beer Money. If you can even call it a match...

- Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, Sean Waltman discuss a match at a PPV... I dose off.

I mean, seriously... THIS is what TNA pulls out of their collective asses for Monday Night Dominance? THIS is the best you've got?

This show sucked. It sucked major, major ass.

And the really sad thing? This ISN'T the last time we're going to see Hogan in the ring... not by a fucking long shot.

So next week, Stone Cold Steve Austin is guest-hosting RAW. Yeah, I'm going to stick with RAW. I'd rather sit through the same, boring shit than two hours of mishandled garbage.

TNA has great talent there... they just have no fucking clue how to use it.

At all.

Later.

1234 - Some catching up to do...
Mood:  don't ask
Topic: Random Stuff

Search for work still continues, but here's some stuff I added on the other blog in the past week in case anyone hasn't gone there yet:

The Bite commentary for this month has been posted in its entirety. It's not a necessarily long piece and it doesn't really cover much that hasn't been said before, but interested parties should give it a quick read.

Also submitted a video review of the NES game Track and Field to Asalieri's Reviewer contest. Not exactly the best piece out there, but hopefully I'll gain some headers to implement in possible future video reviews... this isn't exactly the type of thing I was going for months ago when I first entertained the idea, but I'd figure I get some straight reviews out before I get to the Reflections series down the line.

And... that's about it. I'll probably update here later, but all the major stuff I had planned is presently on hold until I get my affairs in order. Quick stuff, though... might see it sooner or later.

Thanks for understanding and don't forget that I'll be updating the Twisted Blog on a semi-semi-regular basis in the meantime, so check that out for now. 

Take care.

1232 - What The F--?!!!
Topic: Blog Servicing

You may have noticed that I've been posting links here and there rather than the usual Clickie. I'm not going to lie. The blogging software seems to have some kind of glitch where the linking window won't pop up or will pop up empty. While I could just post the link and mess around with the HTML code, I don't really feel like doing that. If the function is there, I should be able to use it without hassle.

It bears mentioning that it could something from my end, but I've tried the same thing on some other computer (located elsewhere) and I get the same fucking problem. 

I really don't want to start bashing Tripod because of this, but this has been happening for at least a couple months. It is getting frustrating when I have to go to FRONTPAGE or the like to write my formatted post and then paste it to the blogging software hoping everything works without a hitch.

Some commented if this blog's going away as a result. That's not going to happen. As much as I complain, I've stuck through worse periods and a little inconvenience isn't going to hinder my efforts or cause me to go away.

However, it is going to slow down posting on this blog... along with the rest of the shit that's going on in my life at the moment.

I'll be going now.

1231 - Bite Commentary for last week... oops
Topic: Web Presence News

Just for the sake of clarity, the newest Bite commentary can be found here: http://dtm666.blogspot.com/2010/01/30-bite-commentary.html

This commentary was written on January 21st and posted the next day, so most of this stuff is probably outdated by the time I'm posting the link here. Suffice it to say, I'll be posting Bite commentaries on that other Blog for the immediate moment.

So what happens to the main site? It's still coming and right now, I'm currently aiming for sometime in mid to late February. All things being considered though, it's not really a priority at the moment. Most of the stuff that's going to be archived there can be found on either my FF.Net, GameFAQs, or IMDB pages. And some of the older stuff might even see reposts on the blogs.

There WILL be a site for sure. I just can't say when.

1229 - TNA teaches their audience how to act
Topic: McWrestling

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xbx2dq_tna-director-of-production-steve-sm_webcam

Click the link above to see the video before it gets taken down and TNA bitches about people knowing how they treat their (non-paying) audience. As much as I'd want to say that this is a stupid idea, I'd have to agree with TNA for the most part; you're not paying to see the show, so what right does that give you to go about your own business? Now if you WERE a paying customer and they tried to do that sort of thing, then it'd be stupid.

Seriously, this is a step away from bringing back the Disney/MGM Studio tapes, complete with cuecards.

1228 - The Return (?) of Power Rangers Retrospectives
Topic: PR Retrospectives

What a plan I had there, right? Wait until the re-airing of brand-old Power Rangers to start posting new retrospectives on these old episodes. A genius plan if I had any semblance of foresight.

But yeah, as you longtimers can probably tell, I'm attempting to bring this feature back. For those unfamiliar with the concept, I basically take a random episode of old Power Rangers and summarize it, pointing out interesting observations and my own thoughts. It makes for interesting reading whether I'm right or wrong on certain matters.

I started this back in 2007 and two years later, not much came of it. I'd like to get this started again and at least for the younger kids, they'll be able to know what to expect... although I'm sure most of them already know that Tommy is the Green Ranger before the fucking show airs.

I'm aiming for March as a start-up date - to be posted on a bi-weekly basis. I'll be starting old-school and work my way up, but it'll still be random selections.

You can find old Retrospectives in the Ranger Restroom topic of the DTM Blog. I intend this to be a regular feature, so count on those being converted to proper Retrospective topics in the near-near future.

Later.

1227 - See?
Topic: Blog Servicing

Yesterday saw three movie reviews posted. Today saw a couple blog posts made and perhaps a couple more reviews of any kind coming soon. And sometime this week, I'll probably be posting a Fanfiction RePost session along with a couple other things.

So yeah, I haven't dumped this blog yet. If anything, I'm building material here to post on the OTHER new blog. While the Twisted Blog is something I want to build into something major, this is still my baby. Even moreso than the Webstation/Twisted Realms site these days.

Later.

1226 - Old Stone Steve Austin To Host RAW in March
Topic: McWrestling

Word has leaked that former WWF champion and WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin is set to host RAW a couple weeks before Wrestlemania 26. One has wonder how tame Austin is going to be considering that WWE is now "family-friendly" entertainment. No doubt his promos will consist mainly of WHAT? every five seconds.

Meanwhile, Dwayne Johnson's Tooth Fairy movie is coming soon.


Posted by dtm666 at 6:58 AM EST
1225 - Tyson
Topic: RAW Bytes

So last night's show featured Mike Tyson as a guest host, which made this the second RAW show that I stayed up until the end to watch. Of course, next week's hosts prove that this is going to be the last one until Shatner comes along a couple weeks later.

Some quick thoughts:

- Tyson opens things up, where Sheamus comes out and tells Tyson to call the match off. This is quickly followed by Randy Orton, and John Cena, and Coffee Kingston retorting that they deserve com. Somewhere along the way, John Cena references the various characters of Mike Tyson's Punch Out, which actually made me smile a bit... although these days Tyson looks less like Tyson and more like Mr. Sandman... oh well.

- They have a match in the Divas tournament that I don't really care about. Seriously, TNA's show was shit, for the most part, but at least they have a couple women who can actually perform good matches when they get the chance.

- Hey, by the way, nice crack by Cody Rhodes on The Marine: "My fifth-grade graduation video is superior to the Marine!" I haven't seen the video and yet I'm tempted to agree.

- HBK and Tyson talk and somehow this gets turned into a tag-team match between DX and Jericho/Tyson. Jesus, didn't they do a fucking match LAST WEEK where if Jericho lost, he's gone from RAW FOREVER? What's the fucking point of having a stipulation match if he's NEVER going to go the fuck away?

- [Who The Fuck Is] Jack Swagger challenges anyone to toss him over the top rope. Challenge accepted and won by Santino Marella of all people. Good show, Santino. Definitely moving up in the world...

- Randy Orton wins the Triple Threat match over Cena and Coffee, thus earning a shot against Sheamus for the title at the Royal Rumble... lame.

- DX beats Jericho after Tyson reveals a DX shirt and knocks out Jericho. This was almost predictable the minute the match was announced, but it came off good so no real complaints.

So overall, this show was okay-ish. Not much more than that.
