UE10’s up. Prologue only. Share and enjoy. I’ve shuffled the focus around a bit; this one will be a joint Mallory/Meiko episode. Both of ’em have been getting little play since Many Moons Ago, so I figured they need some wai time. And they shall get it. Oh, they shall get it.
It’s been a strange weekend. Friday was that awards ceremony; I can’t put my finger on what was odd about it, just that strange feeling I get in intensely crowded alien social situations. Worst I ever had with it was a family Christmas in Delaware I year ago… I forget if I wrote an entry on that. Well, it struck again Friday and at the big wedding today.
Not that the wedding was horrifying — it was fabu! A really amazing ceremony, a terrific reception. Everybody had their game face on and was having fun. I ate a damn good steak, my friends had a ball and things were generally groovy. The only flaws present I won’t go into, too personal. …I hate leaving vague landmines in my journal entries, but it’s hard to be honest to The Truth and protective. Go figure. Bleah.
I saw the Jim Ross / Vince McMahon interview on Confidential (on tape). And… damn. Talk about a story of betrayal. This is NOT a work, people; we’re talking a nasty, horrible situation that went to the worst possible outcome. Say goodbye to Stone Cold. I hope Steve Williams gets his life together — I would not doubt that the man’s got some issues ‘RL’ as it were, maybe even depression (clinical-style) that he needs to deal with. Maybe if he does get his house in order he’ll return, but I have my doubts. Until then, I hope WWE sees this as the wakeup call it is… they can’t coast on Austin and Rock anymore. Both are gone. They HAVE to get the product revamped in radical new ways or it’s just gonna sink, and sink in the most depressing way possible.
Bleeh. Low mood, eh? It’s been a strange day. But anyway, UE10. I have good things planned for this one, so I hope you dig the ride. Would you believe it’s been EIGHT MONTHS since I started UE? October 11th, 2001. Whoa. Still, I think I’m making faster progress than I had figured I would… maybe I can re-insert some of those episodes I had cut from the season. We shall see.
