Do enjoy! https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B079GRD3X7/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1517420205&sr=8-1&keywords=wrestling+365 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B079GRD3X7/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1517420369&sr=1-1&keywords=wrestling+365
  5. I posted this because I just finished watching this as part of a project I'm doing. I wanted to see what people's take on this was, as I feel it could be somewhat divisive. It is all sorts of smoke and mirrors work by Muta - mist, chairs, blood, finisher spam - but it does make the little that Hashimoto brings in terms of offense really fun. So yeah, what do people think about this match?

    Podcast Tips?

    That is really useful. Thanks. I was also looking at creative process tips I guess - like, what do people do to do their podcast? Tape all at once? Segment by segment? Notes? Scripts? Etc etc. Just what do people do when they do a podcast. I will admit that I am a bit of an outlier since I do a podcast by myself. As for the how: I tape in segments and will clean them up with production as needed as I go along. No scripts, but I make notes about items I want to say, jokes I might want to make, etc. I like to have an idea of what I'll be doing but also leave some room to riff as needed. Practice, practice, practice....helps for you to find your voice. Before I started Greetings From Allentown, I did 2-3 practice pods. That is also useful in terms of learning how to edit, etc in whatever program you use, like Audacity. Thanks for the advice. Yours is one of the main ones I listen to and had made me want to try once more (I tried to do one a few years back).

    Podcast Tips?

    Hello Since there are a lot of people on here who create them, I thought a thread with some tips and suggestions about creating a podcast could be useful. I've tried it myself a couple of times and have struggled, so any ideas around the creative process would be much appreciated.
  11. I also feel that the UK bubble is significantly smaller, so most UK fans would have heard (through social media, for example) promoters, wrestlers and super fans talking about booing a heel if you like them, because that is their job. Not saying that works for everyone, but if you listen to Tuesday Night Jaw as a PROGRESS fan and Jim Smallman and people like Scroobius Pip say that, you are more likely to buy into that as a concept. Jim Smallman has already said that even during the Jimmy Havoc heel run, there were still people in the crowd who would cheer him, though it would literally be the odd one or two. It clearly doesn't work for everyone.

    That is really useful. Thanks. I was also looking at creative process tips I guess - like, what do people do to do their podcast? Tape all at once? Segment by segment? Notes? Scripts? Etc etc. Just what do people do when they do a podcast. Windows or Mac? Windows. Also, cheers Mad Dog. That's helpful.

    World Cast: A WCCW Review

    Really looking forward to this.
  15. http://kayfabetoday.com/index.php/2017/07/01/chasing-the-storm-episode-3/ Episode 3 covers three Sano matches, with an Akira Nogami contest between September 89 and January 90 Sano matches. My final ranking for the Sano matches from best to worst: 31st January 90 10th August 89 13th July 89 20th September 89
  16. Just started a new column over at Kayfabe Today http://kayfabetoday.com/index.php/2017/06/04/chasing-the-storm-a-retrospective-of-jushin-thunder-liger-episode-1/ The idea is to watch Liger from the beginning via New Japan World. Liger was my favourite wrestler when I was really young, so primarily this is about seeing if my opinions on him hold up, as well as discovering matches I didn't see when I was pre-teen, pretty much. Thought this might be along the lines of something people here might like, so enjoy! The updates won't be regular regular, but I'll post whenever I add a column.
  17. I actually got around to the second column a lot quicker than I thought I would. http://kayfabetoday.com/index.php/2017/06/11/chasing-the-storm-episode-2/ The debut of the Liger character, his IWGP title match against Hase and the first of the Sano matches are covered. Hope you enjoy.
  18. To celebrate my birthday and a charity run I'm going to be doing this weekend, I've put the book on sale for the next four days. Do check it out now if you've been unsure up until this point as it will only cost you less than a quid. Can't argue with that! https://www.amazon.co.uk/Tracking-Territories-1984-Liam-Byrne-ebook/dp/B06Y4T5LFY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1495644794&sr=8-1&keywords=tracking+the+territories UK https://www.amazon.com/Tracking-Territories-1984-Liam-Byrne-ebook/dp/B06Y4T5LFY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1495644949&sr=8-1&keywords=tracking+the+territories US ($1.29) Not sure if the countdown deal extends to other countries, but have a look and check it out if you can. Thanks!
  19. I added information about some of the stuff covered in this Volume:
