What’choo Talking About, Todd Bridges?

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the June 4th, 2009

You may not want to run up to legendary American TV actor Todd Bridges and yell “What’choo talkin’ bout, Willis?” (in case you were born in the 90’s, Bridges played Gary Coleman’s older brother Willis on the historic TV series “Diff’rent Strokes” — the molestation episode is classic!) For the past few years, Bridges has joined the ranks of professional wrestling. If he gets annoyed by Willis fans, he just might body slam them! Bridges is known in the ring as Mr. Not So Perfect — and if you check out the internets, you’ll see his grown up days have been exactly that, including some serious criminal charges. That’s why we love him so. Building his own computers from the ground up, playing PC games, and talkin’ smack online, Willis identifies as a true computer geek. Watch the interview to hear his politcal thoughts on Cary Coleman’s run for governor and the current California Governator. Also, watch for his online gamer tag so you can wrestle him yourself! Don’t forget to peep past the credits for a special challenge from the Slutsky.

Fog City Wrestling

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the December 15th, 2008

If you’ve never seen muscle men in spandex, masks, tattoos and make up running around jumping on top of each other and screaming, you haven’t been to a wrestling show! After 30 years of downtime, San Francisco’s Fog City Wrestling promises a monthly dose of pro-wresting hijinks mixed with kitchy Mexican Lucha Libre with a splash of comic book antics. Istope comic store owner James Sime acted as commissioner and a part of the live show. GETV stopped by this weekend to witness the insanity, the hairless chests, the manly muscles, the screaming madness, the high-flying tricks, the body slams, the dropkicks, and the flying sweat. Irina enjoyed herself perhaps a bit much as she interviewed the roster of Fog City’s wrestlers. If “geek” means having a deep passion for something, then these guys are wrestling geeks for sure. If you can’t make it to Fog City’s live wrestling show on Jan 10, watch the livestream on their site. The organizers also post their audio and video podcast on the site, including promos and interviews with wrestlers from the roster. See you on the mat!
