Anyhow, what I said a moment ago is true ChickFight 7, UK edition, is finally releasing! I was quite pleased to see Lacey in the first release. I am not quite sure why, but she's always been a personal favorite of mine. She is a pretty good wrestler, and smokin' hot.. but I think it's the attitude. In any case. Definitely check out her latest release. Lacey versus UK wrestler, Eden Black. It's a great match, and I am not quite sure if I remember Lacey spitting on anyone.. but even if she doesn't? Still worth it.
Things are good here at the office. It looks like I ruffled Bossman's feathers about this mysterious thing a bit too much.. As he sent me to the store today for Safety Pins and Post-its. And refused to tell me what for. Said it was for a secret project. Ugh.

I think Bossman likes to come off as a mysterious, enigmatic, emotionless, corporate type. He's really, really not. It's funny. He will wear his hip glasses, his tailored black coats, and sport his cool leather blinds in his office.. but when it comes down to it, he really is just a big softie. Bossman took Chris and I out to lunch and coffee again today; we had Thai and snarky conversation. Overall a good time. I got to thinking about it, and BossMan takes us out all the freaking time. He can't be such a robot if he takes such good care of us. Chris and I have decided Bossman should adopt us, officially. Somehow I don't think he'd go for it.. let alone his new Latina Wifey, Mrs. Bossman.
Has anyone checked out OnlineWorldofWrestling ? It's the new and improved Obsessed With Wrestling site. After a small amount of domain dispute, they have a new site and it's really neat. They've been giving a lot of attention to female wrestling these days, which I really appreciate, because it's a personal interest of mine. They even had a recent review of our ChickFight 5 DVD. (Look here!) Our production staff got special props.
" A lot of great independent organizations put out some really cool DVD's but they all seem to follow the same generic production rules. Both of the Chick Fight DVD's that I've watched featured jaw-dropping audio and visual effects far superior to anything I've seen in wrestling outside of WWE and TNA. The special effects used are integrated to perfection during this show without taking away from the in-ring abilities of any of the girls. So for production value this DVD gets a perfect score of ten out of ten"
How freaking awesome is that? I am very, very proud of production. (Ahem, Chris!) Be sure to get your hands on the matches here at ClickWrestle.Com, too! Immediate satisfaction. How about that? All right.. Time to get out of here.

I was able to talk Chris into finalizing the ChickFight 7 footage, so it looks like all that pressure worked! And today's release is another free match from APW. MPT versus Psichosis. Great match, check it out - it's on the house!

When I got upstairs, I finished capturing the last match I need to work on from the San Francisco Kezar Stadium show on 9/02/06. It happened to be the Dana Lee vs. Derek Sanders match, where Dana won the APW Universal Championship Title. After capturing all of the footage, I have effectively watched the match 4 times from 4 different angles. Then I began cutting the footage together. (Watching it again, in slow motion.) 3 or 4 hours later, I was done. I had cut the footage, rendered it, and was watching it one last time to make sure I was happy. Crappy thing number 2: During that last viewing... my editing program crash-kaboomed. Ugh. No, I didn't save. No, auto-save wasn't turned on. Argh! How frustrating. I lost half a days work that I still haven't finished again. It'll have to wait until tomorrow.
Blah. I hate that. I've learned my lesson. Auto-save is turned on. Ctrl-S is being abused. So where do the capers come in to play? Well, while Chris and I thought some photoshopping goodness could of been great boss-is-gone-caper material, our accidental caper was more than enough caper for us today.
Accidental Caper? Yep. While I was sitting at my desk, before Crappy thing number 2 occurred, I smelled... Fire? Burning? Ahh! I was immediately worried some of my video equipment was overheating, so I turned to Chris to figure out if he could smell the burning too. He could, and apparently had a better idea than I of what was going on, as he walked right to the source. Chris led me to the balcony (right where the eggs are!) He has taken to using that as his own little smoking retreat. While that is usually fine, today after smoking his cigarette, he set the butt in his makeshift ashtray and came back to the office. Apparently the butt was still burning, and it set a few of the other butts on fire. There was a nice little smoke/fire going out there when we discovered it. We poured some water on it, and everything was fine. In fact, it wasn't much of a danger at all, since it was in the middle of concrete. However, I'm not up for many more capers after the fire, program crappiness, and key crappiness.
I'll do my best to have some more uplifting news for you all tomorrow. But, if you're down like me.. Watch today's match. SeXXXy Eddy certainly brightened my mood last week!

Anyhow, Bossman is out of town for a few days. He is out have more mysterious adventures that he won't tell anyone anything about. I am convinced that we he takes these little leaves of absence, he's actually out being pampered at a spa somewhere. I can see him now, soaking in a big tub of mud with little cucumber slices over his eyes... Hm. In any case, I think that since Bossman is gone, Chris and I should stir up a little hell here at the office. I haven't figure it out yet, but there should be capers. I'll think of something.
In the world of ClickWrestle-to-come, we have good news! It looks like we have just about everything we need to start releasing the footage from ChickFight 7! Our last bit of audio was shipped over from the UK this week, and if I put the proper pressure on Chris, I am thinking you will all get to see what those gals can do across the Atlantic in no time. Because really, I think Chris could use a little more pressure. I'll get to that right now.

No, really. Click here! Hah. Sorry. That just cracks me up. I was finishing up Kafu's match on Friday when I saw that. Good ol' Bryan was working the Camera at Kezar last September. It looks like he tripped over a chair while filming Kafu on the way to the ring. But it just goes to show ya.. Even the production crew takes a few shots around here.
Also, it looks like the Death Matches have started pouring out. Vanessa Kraven against Rachael Putski is particularly disturbing. I can't imagine how bad that Thumb-Tack death match must of hurt. I sat on a thumb-tack once.. and whined about it for about a week. That ~hurts~. I can't imagine how Putski's bottom feels with hundreds of them stuck in there. Ack. Buy the match! Or at least look at that preview. Ouch!

Now, I am not sure what that means. But it sounds like good news for Mr. Kafu. Who knows if Roland speaks true here, though.. he has a history of embellishing "his" accomplishments. (Roland has been grooming Kafu for a few years now.) Yet,I found it pretty interesting that so soon after Mr. Alexander's blog, I found myself editing one of Kafu's matches at the Kezar Stadium, in San Francisco. In this match, Kafu faces Steve Corino, and as it turns out, Roland Alexander himself was banned from this event. Kafu certainly put forth some impressive skills in this match. I am not surprised at all that, if true, Kafu is getting some attention from the big leagues.
In any case.. Keep your eye open for this upcoming match. Also, check out today's new release. Sumie Sakai in a IWA-MS death-match. Bloody, disgusting, and fascinating.

Upon stumbling back into the streets of San Francisco after a year's absence, I was both relieved and shocked when I found myself back at work. Relieved because good ol' ClickWrestle is still standing. Shocked because upon entering the desolate building, I got to see how things have changed around here. Most notably... Chris. I know I have fawned over this particular Co-Worker before, and undoubtedly will again, but Chris has exploded in our office. He's got equipment, cameras, and footage EVERYWHERE. (I'll be nice and not go into detail about the cigarette pack carcasses.) The office was filthy. Once I got past THAT, I was able to see all of the great stuff that has been going on. So much new footage to work with! Wonderful things have been happening with ChickFight as well.
What else is new? Well, the ever-so-sweet Bryan has moved on to a new project. While I will mourn not being able to lock him in cages, or coerce him into eating year-old candies, I do wish him great luck in his new endeavors. Bossman is still doing quite well. Rumor has it he eloped with a Latin lady and didn't invite anyone to the wedding. Of course, there are tons of rumors about Bossman. He's a mysterious guy.
So what can you look forward to now that I am back? Well. You can look forward to my usual updates on ClickWrestle, ChickFight, and my usual bits of office gossip. What can you look forward to on ClickWrestle? Well. Keep your eye out for some horrifically bloody footage coming your way. Some of this upcoming stuff just isn't for the queasy stomached.
