Costume Ideas For Halloween: Idiot In Car and Idiot in Neon!
53 minutes

RD attempts to play it straight. This lasts for a minute before his "doorbell" rings. His subsequent receiving of a package, which contains the SeanceTrolla N08 Cauldron, makes Blade laugh. He turns it on, making it play cliche "scary music" and causing a dot matrix printer to print him an ominous warning. (:08)

'Someone' told Blade last progrem that his low register voice makes him sound sleepy. And here I thought he was just drunk or hungover.

As is his eternal custom Roddy Piper warns the kids about idiots in cars. Blade has some issues with his syntax. (:13)

Blade: "You know, wouldn't it be fun if we were like down to two listeners, and those two listeners were named RD Reynolds and Blade Braxton?"

A now teenage RD Junior has been to Disneyworld at least once a year. (:17) Sad News: Rafiki's ride is being shut down.

Blade shills being on TV and in more horror movies. (:24)

Brooke Hogan: Fashion Hero's 2nd season is going international. Apparently this is a thing. Blade sings badly without RD's MIDI to accompany him.

At Wrestlecon April 5th Joey Ryan will have some sort of Penis Party right in the middle of the MetLife stadium. Blade does some more random singing.

Piper reminds people to say please and thank ya.

Tammy has finally been released from prison. (:35) She now wants to do a "farewell tour" before going back to school and "private life". For her sake and well-being, I sincerely hope it works out this time. Unfortunately experience and history tells me things won't change for the better, not even now. One has to just wait and see I suppose.

Blade continues to confuse himself with the Midnight Rose. Why, it's almost like they're one and the same person.

The Cauldron threatens Blade this time with a Pete Townshend lyric. Blade is definitely one to get fooled again. And again. And again after that.  (:38)

Derek Quinn of the Powerhouse of Sound DJ Service (2), asks about other wrestlers who might provide their own Halloween safety tips. (:39) They think Virgil could work. RD also wants to pay for Tammy to give tips. (That sure sounded wrong.) They also want Ken Patera, what with his experience with being hungry.

Piper reminds you to take (all) your candy back home to your parents before you eat it. (:42)

:46 Before the Fruitcakes can continue to further mess around as is their itinerary, the OG SeanceTrolla activates, "reviving" Nate and his coarse voice to strangle RD in the name of TNA Total Non Stop Action Wrestling. On the other end a sleepy Blade is "woken up" by John Kelly, who has sources. (:50)

Only Johnny 6 is left to do the Haiku (:51) in a rather lower register of voice than usual for some reason. Perhaps he too is sleepy. Further, his theme boops and beeps that bring him in are of somewhat of a low quality this time around, most likely due to the hard work of the SeanceTrolla reviving him into undeath and NOT because RD lost the original version and asked us for a replacement-copy.

No, really.

Silver Shamrock:
Ha. Ppy. Hall. O. Ween.
Ha. Ppy. Ha. Ppy. Hall. O. Ween.
Ha. Ppy. Hall. O. Ween.

Piper reminds you to have lots of fun trick-or-treating, and if you have any leftover/bad candy to send to Vince to poison him.

WCR Video: Rowdy Roddy Piper's Halloween Tips...AGAIN!

Back in the 1980s on WWFE Television, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper gave a special Public Service Announcement where he provided some safety tips for the "bunches of" kids wanting to go trick or treating on Halloween. (Credit goes to John Gjoni for originally uploading this video on Facebook).

WCR Video: (Nitromaniac TV's) Favorite Wrestlecrap Radio Moments/Episodes!

In a clip from Nitromaniac TV's Youtube video podcast, two of the 12 listeners, Kellen Nitro and Moorhouse sit down to discuss their favorite Wrestlecrap Radio episodes and moments from the longest running episodic podcast.

Note: They do mention at the start of the clip (that was recorded back in June 2018) that Mike Check would be attending Starrcast back in August/September, but there was an explanation earlier in the month on The Mike Check Show on why Mike Check didn't show up.

276 Controversy Creates Crap: September 5, 2018

"If a picture paints a thousand words..." (-@WrestleCrapRD)
75 minutes

The Fruitcakes have returned from having fun at Starrcast, all photographically catalogued on RD's Facebook profile, should you or one of my fellow Librarians get around to storing it all for future reference. This involved RD skinning the Gobbledy Gooker for his outfit while Blade wore the "heavy" Oz robe with his "trapezoids". RD thanks Conrad for the success of the show through logistically handling the 140+ guest speakers there. Blade had no idea how he got up there to attend.

RD: "Nothing but the finest for Blade Braxton." (:06)

They also met Jordan Mishkin in person for the first time who was a great help throughout. Blade met Diamond Dan for the first time without having to call his hotline. Remember, that's 317 335 4688. Again, 317 335 HOTT.

While there:

  • Veda Scott helped apply Katie Vick's makeup (:10) much to Rosa Mendez's initial disgust towards a cheerleader mannequin. Mandy Leon liked her hair though. 
  • Simon Gotch was next to them all weekend. Blade caught up with him. (:14) Lanny Poffo was also around for a bit with Jay Lethal. 
  • RD Meet Dave Meltzer for the first time. (:16) Blade met Bryan and Dr. Keith Lipinski. 
  • Botchamania Maffew was a laugh riot.
  • The Ghost of Joey Ryan gravitated to Katie's casket. (:19) Many other folks encountered her both in and out of it including Joel Gertner taking a photo inside it. 
  • Lex Luger is a fan of his hometown Bills and their loose fitting t-shirts (not the "ABC Pro Bowl Team" according to Blade.) (:23) Seeing Katie wheeled around surprised him. 
  • RD was drawn on a Death of WCW related comic book cover. (:26)
  • David Arquette attended the afterparty with other great folks.
  • Just about everyone met was super nice and gracious, as it should be at any convention.

SPEAKING OF Rebel, (:26) she eats Fruity Pebbles for breakfast. While visiting the stand she tried some Peanut Butter and Cocoa. While it smelled good enough for a few other people to gather round and try, it sadly had no taste. Also she does not like soggy cereal or having it with milk.

Upon landing and meeting the Fruitcakes went straight to Walmart and its cereal aisle.

Joel Gertner likes the original unaltered Cocoa Puffs. (:36) These days like Mike Reno before him he prefers the ladies for breakfast. He also went with them to Giordano's for evening pizza. RD: "Does the pizza sound delicious?"

The WC panel (purchase and watch it here) had singing Bill Apter going over a few of his old mag covers. (:41)  Oscar of Men On A Mission vented his anger through a funny rap. Dr D still has a fiery look even now. A segment of Kevin Sullivan was played where he talked about how his one time teleport cannot be replicated because you have to be in the right neighborhood to do it, or something.

Jim was also there for some reason. (:52) He spent his time trying to traverse a maze of people in the parking lot at 1 am. "You can go fuck yourself!" he says randomly, as is his custom.

RD feels he could have done better at the Death of WCW panel (which you can also purchase and watch here). (:55) He was more fascinated (© Mike Check) by his supplemental interaction with Eric Bischoff. This is also included in RD's photo feed.

Their first meeting was in one of the photo ops. areas, with the two situated between Eric and Sean Waltman. Eric was also disgusted by Katie, then had to suffer a low person flow (imagine that) with everyone going to the WC table instead. A break in the action had RD coming over to him, and Blade's photo of it easily showed how already annoyed Bischoff was, even in low resolution.

The panel was the next day (with the aforementioned Sullivan and David Penzer). Bischoff admitted beforehand that he was not a funny person (again, imagine that). The two were on each other right from the start, though RD was the one ultimately succeeding in provoking him. Thankfully their agreeing on a few points and RD reminding him that he wrote that he was an influential and pioneering genius in the business many a time calmed him down. At the end of the panel they shook hands in respect (unlike at the beginning where Eric flipped him off). Blade lamented his limited involvement in all of this.

The true shock was afterwards however. RD, continuing to have no hard feelings, thanked Bischoff for the panel. Bischoff then told RD that he thought Dave Meltzer wrote the book (instead of just a foreword) that he didn't even read in the first place. This was such an absurd revelation that the two just started laughing at the whole thing. This finally helped resolve things between them, enough that they would pose for some more photos. In a more positive light anyway.

And to think that Bischoff wanted to castrate him.

I'm curious to see what the Haiku is all about (after Blade misses his cue):
Labor Day Starrcast.
There's money in the casket.
Katie got around.

"Eric, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship."

WCR Video: Sit Down For Wrestlecrap!

In late 2010, former WWE CEO Linda McMahon attempted to run for Senator of the U.S. state of Connecticut. She was attacked by politicians on both sides of Politics for WWE’s past business and ethical scandals, as well as their controversial story lines (e.g: the time she kicked Jim Ross in the testicles on TV, having her daughter Stephanie participate in a Satanic wedding, Trish Stratus barking like a dog in her underwear...and we haven't even got to Katie Vick yet?). Linda’s husband and WWE chairman Vince McMahon got ultra-defensive, as usual, and posted this video on WWE.com.

RD Reynolds from wrestlecrap.com thought that Vince McMahon's "Stand Up for WWE" was such a brilliant idea that he filmed his own campaign video for his own website with the slogan "Sit Down For Wrestlecrap"!

(Video Title: "RD Reynolds Addresses the WrestleCrap Universe" by WrestlecrapRD)

Hmm. Come to think of it, this video is kind of relevant right now as RD needs YOU, the twelve listeners, to Stand Up "Sit Down" for him against Eric Bischoff, and his war on Deal's "Death Of WCW Book", at Starrcast's "Death Of WCW Panel" on Saturday, September 1st, 2018. Edit: Oh and speaking of that, here's another two videos uploaded by RD Reynolds advertising the Wrestlecrap Panel and addressing Easy E's threats to Deal's private parts:

"Starrcast WrestleCrap Panel - Last Chance!"

"Eric Bischoff Physically Threatens Death of WCW Author's Private Parts"

...And you know who else needs to "Sit Down"? It's Harry Belafonte, who's song can be heard over on The Mike Check Show! And also be sure to visit here for the WCR Video archives!
