A\m/A II: The Grindening

What three guys/girls would you take off the main roster and move to NXT?
Fandango, Naomi, and Adam Rose.

Fandango and Rose to get some character development (though I guess Rose is starting to get that) and polish up a little but in the ring with Zayn, Neville, Kidd, and the new additions (Devitt, Steen, KENTA); Naomi because I think she actually has something of a future and some solid coaching from Death Rey and others could do wonders for her.

Least favorite moment?
You know, that's a really good question, because there's been a lot of moments I've seen where I've either thrown my hands up and said "fuck this shit" and stopped watching altogether (for a bit) and there's been plenty that have just made me roll my eyes, but it comes down to two moments that stand out as legitimately pissing me off as a fan. They weren't boring or so over-the-top stupid that any insult to my intelligence or loyalty as a fan could be laughed off quickly (like everything Russo did in WCW or his second TNA run), but they made me stop watching despite whatever positives may have come from it or been going on around it.

It's either this...


...or this...


The first made me just palmface and had me ask "why the fuck am I wasting my time?" before swearing off WWE for a while (and then all of wrestling after the news that broke the week after), but the second I kinda/sorta took as a personal affront because that was one of two matches I actually wanted to see (since HHH/Taker from the year before put me to fucking sleep so I had no interest in a rematch, and anything featuring Cena that doesn't also feature Punk or Bryan or Jericho is equally snore-inducing on my end) and I'd been a mark for Bryan since I first saw him in a comp of '02 ROH.

So one's a case of palmface-inducing stupidity and self-loathing for spending so much time and money on something that I felt wasn't worth the investment, and the other was Vince McMahon's limousine being blown up.

EDIT:
I think I'm leaning more towards "18 seconds." It gave my friends the origin of the Throwing Hat and just finding the clip (I won't ever fucking watch it again) actually made me angry.

But at least some good came out of 18 seconds, right?

Nothing that couldn't have been accomplished if it had been a competitive match. The issue wasn't that Bryan lost to Sheamus or that he lost clean or even that he lost due to AJ's distraction, it's that he looked like a 100% complete joke in the process on the biggest show of the year. His booking over the next almost-year was forgettable and mediocre, and everything from Team Hell No onward was unaffected by it being 18 seconds long. It was a waste of time and a waste of his talent and denied me a good match that would have at least been worth my money, and it simultaneously highlights the shyte booking and future planning of the current regime while disproving the idea that Bryan in the ME by WM30 was the long-term plan because it made absolutely no sense to job out a potential top guy like that.

...god dammit, Scotty!

Your favorite South Park?
Hardest question asked thus far, because I really don't have one episode that stands out head and shoulders above the rest, but I do have a plethora of favorite bits and jokes.

My favorite bit from the show, however, is the constant interviewing of the pedophile in "Ladder to Heaven."

I use Timmy's "wow, what a fabulous/terrific  audience" (in his voice) a lot.

Rank your top 5  choices (so #1 would be something you couldn't live without)  in entertainment (internet is dq'd from this process)  -  ie:  sports, music, movies, tv, books, video games, art ...  etc.

Top 5 across the board as in "this album is more important than any novel to me," or top 5 in each category?

EDIT:
Read other answers and figured it out.

1. Music
2. Movies
3. Reading (copout, but I spend most of my time online reading random shit, but that counts as general reading so too bad)
4. Video Games
5. Pro Wrestling

Dream band?
People currently alive and with my current tastes...
Trevor Strnad (The Black Dahlia Murder) - Vocals
Mark Kloeppel (Misery Index) - Rhythm Guitar/Backing Vocals
John Gallagher (Dying Fetus) - Lead Guitar/Backing Vocals
Josh Staples (Abnormality) - Bass
Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer, Grip Inc., Philm, Fantomas) - Drums

All-time I don't think I can answer because I can't really combine the different styles they'd play too smoothly, so this one isn't a definitive "ALL TIME DREAM BAND EVER GUYS" list, but definitely something I'd have loved to give a chance...
Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden) - Vocals
Dimebag Darrell (Pantera) - Lead Guitar
Scott Ian (Anthrax, S.O.D.) - Rhythm Guitar
Cliff Burton (Metallica) - Bass
Gene Hoglan (Strapping Young Lad, Fear Factory) - Drums

Quote
Dream festival line-up?
Current line-ups...
Gwar, Misery Index, Dying Fetus, Iron Maiden, Ghoul, Fear Factory, The Crown, At the Gates, Helloween, The Black Dahlia Murder, Exhumed, Carcass, Amon Amarth, and probably a few smaller or local acts

All-time line-ups...
Metallica (circa 1986), Slayer (circa 1991), S.O.D. (circa 1992), Toxic Narcotic (circa 1999), the Misfits (circa 1999, so I can hear the good Graves stuff and all the classics too by a decent singer), the Plasmatics (circa 1984), Motorhead (circa 1995), Iron Maiden (circa ANYTHING BUT THE '90s), Exodus (circa 1988), White Zombie (circa 1996)

Favorite is the Joker, because who doesn't love the greatest comic book villain ever, but the one I think would be interesting to see would be Scarecrow. It wouldn't be hard to translate somebody who just likes to drug people so they have bad trips into a police drama.

For a while it surprised people that I loved Tom Petty, Andrew Jackson Jihad, and '80s new wave/synth pop, but I would say the most "out there" right now would be this:

Premier, definitely. There's only been three so far, with the premier already being an all-time classic, the second being serviceable, and the third being really funny...but man, Roger Goodell-bot...
