Kevin Nash, who was likely joking, teased an nWo reunion on his Twitter account recently, writing, "A lot of you wanted an NWO reunion,there will be one. As you know we only come in take over mode. Stay tuned!!! Nash later wrote, "Rock will never walk out of the Rumble with the belt we got Phils back Sorry CMPunk we got your back!!!! Nash also stated that Punk would be the leader and that the nWo army would be there "to protect the gold. Ross wrote in his latest blog on jrsbarbq.
Among those scheduled to attend the private affair are steveaustinBSR and miketyson, among many others. No guarantees that any of us will be around for RAW so I particularly enjoyed my experiences Monday night. I look back upon my attendance at RAW as a privilege and am grateful to have had the opportunity to see so many old friends that have meant a great deal to me over my long career. While I would love to honor Mick on that special occasion, there is no way that I would ever put myself in the same category with Terry Funk.
Terry mentored Mick and treated Mick like a son. While I'd love to induct Mrs. However, I stand ready if called upon. I have no idea if this topic is any thing more than speculation based on my friend Kevin Nash having some fun with the subject on Twitter.
Bottom line is that I don't know but I would be surprised if Punk headed up a faction at this time because he seems to be such a solitary man. The only way that I see that ever happening at this stage of Punk's career is if he had complete control on who comprised the group. Pro Wrestling giant Great Khali has tumor removed The tumor was on Khali's pituitary gland, which caused him to increase in height to over seven-feet-tall. However, if left untreated, the tumor could have been fatal, according to WWE's chief medical director, Dr.
Joseph Maroon. It's the same issue that affected Andre the Giant. You can check out the video at Funnyordie. The move has since gone viral as a YouTube sensation, become a nickname and, before the London Games are over, it might become part of U.
Ellis Coleman and his older brother, Lillashawn, used to wrestle with each other at their high school outside of Chicago when they would dial up crazy moves to use on each other. Coleman, at age 21 the youngest member of the six-man U. Olympic Greco-Roman wrestling team, has used the move about a dozen times in competition. In Greco-Roman wrestling, the competitors get points for their various moves. Five points is the most you can get for one move.
Coleman said he has used the move about a dozen times and usually gets at least three points for it. He first unveiled it out of desperation in a match he was losing, stunned his opponent with it and went on to win it. I still picture it. We love him. Coleman dreams of flying away from these Olympics with some hardware. Something gold, perhaps. The New York Post. NSW govt investigates 'floating casino' Hospitality Minister George Souris on Wednesday said a government authority was investigating an allegation that passengers could play blackjack, pontoon, poker and roulette on a cruise that left Sydney on Friday night.

But the document doesn't mention any casino facilities despite the company's earlier statements they hope to open up to gambling tables at the property.

The Expendables 2 slapped with R rating for extreme violence Action star-laden sequel The Expendables 2 has been given an R rating for its violent and sexual content in the US. Bruce Willis, Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger and co will even be throwing some bad language into the mix as they bat off hostile attackers in this follow-up to the action-packed extravaganza. Lionsgate was rumoured to have been considering a PG rating for the film, which is due for release in the States on August 17th.
Once again, Stallone assembles his hardened team of old-school mercenaries for a special mission - taking revenge after one of their squad is murdered on the job. Director Simon West was never in any doubt that the film would receive such a high rating, given the 'very hard' violence and language perpetrated by the all-star cast throughout the film.

The Supanova pop culture expo has returned to Sydney, Australia, and has warmly embraced the pop culture phenom which is taking place at Olympic Park, Homebush, in Sydney's west.
It's a 3 day pop culture mania bringing together fans, actors, game players, information and tons of merchandise and collectibles. Make no mistake - this is big business, but also lots of fun. It brings out the kid lurking inside all of us, no matter what our age. Witnessing the general public dress up as their favourite hero, heroine or monster was just as much fun as the official exhibitions. Even our favorite real life superheroes of Australian pro wrestling - AWF Wrestling turned up and put on some very solid chain wrestling and brawling to the delight of the crowd.
The wrestlers were also a big favorite with the media and the brawlers got somewhat crowd mobbed with famed actor Verne Troyer Mini-Me from 'Austin Powers' fame joining in the fun and games. The Christopher Lloyd question and answer session was very entertaining and educational, and was a much sought after attraction for both news media and fans. Lloyd shared stories from his illustrious acting and show business career, much of which has been pop culture included such as 'Back To The Future' franchise, where he portrayed Dr.
Emmett Brown. Lloyd even talked about the cult film fav 'Suburban Commando', which also featured pro wrestling living legend, Hulk Hogan not known for great actingbut a very entertaining showman, none the less. Lloyd told the crowd of plus that he enjoyed working with Hulk and that he was a really nice guy and didn't pretend to be a great actor. One lucky fan asked Lloyd if he could have a "high five", and the actor obliged, which got a nice reaction from the jam packed crowd.
Buffy Star also at Supanova Sydney From the popular Hatchet horror movie franchise to spooky shows such as Buffy and Angel, the year-old says she has come to feel comfortable within the genre and loves "a good death scene".
At the age of 16 she auditioned for a supporting role on Joss Whedon's Buffy The Vampire Slayer, a move that would change her life.
No one could anticipate how welcomed and received the show was. McNab experienced quite a character turn on Buffy when her superficial character was transformed into a vampire and eventually went on to join the spin-off series Angel.
Now that Whedon has found mainstream and box-office success with the hit of the year - 'The Avengers' - McNab says his loyal friends couldn't be happier. He's just proved to the industry what he can do. Our Hero is no longer Expendable. In a career spanning five decades, Eric Roberts has become recognisable to millions of film and TV fans.

The Voice enjoyed a media conference at Hordern Pavilion, Moore Park, this morning, with Voice coaches and finalists there to help promote the smash hit TV show, as the finals approach via Channel Nine.
The culling of eight singers from The Voice last night has set the stage for a controversial finale Channel Nine's talent comp. Only one singer per team was permitted to go through and critics and viewers took to Twitter to complain about the final line-up.
The ruling meant fan favourites on the same team were culled. Both Leahcar and Percival battled a virus as well as the high-pressure nerves, which told in their limited vocal performances last night. During the show's preamble, Madden likened the semi-final line-up to The X Men: "We all have super powers. No one is better than anyone else. The final performances will be on Sunday, with each contender performing one cover and one original song.
The winner revealed on Monday night, no doubt to massive TV ratings, the likes of which have not been seen by Nine for years, is the inside word. Each contender will perform one cover and one original song. May the best man or woman win, and hopefully its also a win for the Australian entertainment industry. The Voice leaped to 2. That figure based on actual broadcast time - not the preliminary figure of 2.
The program gave Nine a A key result for Nine was Tricky Business's performance into its fifth week. But the actual figures based on broadcast times show the drama starring Gigi Edgley averagedviewers with its number rocketed by The Voice's over-run as "Team Seal" decided its contestant for Sunday and Monday's finale.
Seven News came in second for the night with 1. The Block continued to build for Nine, up to 1. Revenge continued its awesome run for Seven with 1. Four Corners was up toviewers, Australian Storyand Media Watch , all well up on their averages in theregion. Seven's AFL figures were not yet available for publication. Hugh Jackman tried to punch Russell Crowe as many times as possible during rehearsals for theatre production Les Miserables.
The Australian star keeps asking to re-shoot fight scenes where he knocks Crowe out, because he enjoys it so much. A source told The Sun newspaper: "The crew find it hilarious as Crowe would obviously sweep the floor with Jackman in real life. Although Jackman has always had to be in good shape to play muscular superhero Wolverine in the X-Men films, he was recently told he had to bulk up to play the character in the next movie, The Wolverine, as he had lost so many pounds while appearing in Hugh Jackman: Back On Broadway.
He said: "The studio wants me to bulk up. Singing and dancing makes the suits nervous because weight just falls off me, but I'd rather sing and dance on Broadway than make movies. Crowe is also no stranger to long fight scenes, having undergone gruelling shoots against Michael Shannon in Superman: Man of Steel, in which he played the titular superhero's father. He tweeted: "15km bike ride, umpteen hours fighting Michael Shannon. He's very hard to put down. Hard to tell who wins, we are still fighting tomorrow.
It's been mixed headlines for The Star over the past month, but the powers that be are hoping the ship will turn around after re pushing the celebrity card, now looking to have netted Paris Hilton and friends.
The Star in 'Sin City' Sydney will fly in some big name celebs to help launch its new nightclub, Marquee. It sounds like its going to be a huge night come March 30, and one of the hottest tickets in town we bet. The heiress recently fuelled the rumours when she posted this message on Twitter: "Congrats NoahTepperberg on MarqueeSydney! DJAfrojack is gonna kill it at the opening party down there!
I love Australia! The casino is looking to throw off the negative press that came its way re the the surprise departure of former boss Sid Vaikunta. The National Enquirer is now reporting that Jennifer is "heavily recruiting" close friend and Bruce Willis wife Emma Heming to join the show as well!
So how exactly does Bruce and Sly feel about this? But first he wants to get past the impending arrival of his new baby. Brummer 'acted in self-defence' during nightclub scuffle The former Home and Away heart-throb allegedly attempted to bite one man, and punched and kicked another in the scuffle at the city's Crown Casino after the actor was turned away from a Logie Awards afterparty in May Brummer appeared in court in Melbourne on Friday 23 Mar 12 to face charges of unlawful assault and attempting to commit an indictable offence for allegedly trying to bite the security guard.
However the actor's lawyer, Andrew Dickenson, argued the incident was "largely a case of self-defence" as Brummer was being restrained by up to five guards and had his hands tied. Dickenson asked for the case to be reviewed at a diversion hearing, which allows first-time offenders to escape a conviction by making amends for their actions.
The magistrate granted the request and the diversion hearing will be held on 1 May Soapies star tried to bite bouncer - court Former soapie star Dieter Brummer will reappear in court in May for allegedly trying to bite, push and kick Crown Casino security guards on Logies night.
Brummer, 36, was outside a Logies after-party at Melbourne's Crown Casino on May 2 last year when he was restrained by up to five security guards aka "gorillas in suits". Melbourne Magistrates Court heard Brummer tried to bite one of the guards and pushed and kicked another.
But his lawyer argued he was acting in self-defence. Brummer, who shot to stardom on Home and Away and more recently starred in two Underbelly series, appeared in court on Friday facing nine charges. Defence lawyer Andrew Dickenson said Brummer had been restrained by up to five security guards during the scuffle, had a bloodied nose and his hands tied when he lashed out. The court heard Brummer had drugs in his possession but they were later found to be prescription medication.
Mr Dickenson asked for the matter to be referred for a diversion hearing, given the circumstances. Magistrate Ann Collins initially had reservations, but agreed after hearing Brummer's claim of self-defence. Huang, G.

Main article: Brad Shepherd. It's a really beautiful spot for a show. Outdoors on a nice big terrace and also right by a rather large lake although they didn't have quite the audacity to call it the University of Wisconsin Beach Campus or something like that And finally on to Milwaukee or to be more precise, Port Washington WI which really isn't very far from Milwaukee and guess what - its another outdoor show and it's next to a really big Lake.
And then there's a whole run up the east coast the following week but I'm not even going to go into that. That might require a whole other blog later on which I may also use as a debriefing session on my general feelings towards Lakes.
And what else? I've been doing a few things lately that should start popping up online over the next few weeks, interviews and performances and the like, there will be links right here as they come along. In fact, here's one now. And I'll also be doing a live set for audiotreemusic.
I'll see if they can arrange a cardboard backdrop of Lake Tanganyika. Well, that's about it for now. S release of his album, Everything is True. The band are onstage at 9pm sharp. Sunday July 3rd from 8pm on Well it's about that time again eh?

Each and every one of only you I played down there with the band last month which was a great time and I'm looking forward to getting back there and I would certainly love you to come down to the show if you're not working late. Or something. There's nothing on TV on Monday night anyway. Is there? And probably going to the Smithsonian all afternoon before the show.
And probably wondering what the Voice of America would sound like if it was y'know James Earl Jones? Morgan Freeman? Jeff Bridges? Bobcat Goldthwaite?
Wow, there's a blast from the past. What dimly-lit corner of my brain was he hiding in?! Come to the show on Monday night. Because you're special. There will be an official parade down 5th avenue and fireworks over the Brooklyn Bridge and every Mr Softee van in the city will play the album on repeat all day long instead of that other song Just come along to that instead.

You give me a common language of agreed value, in this case money - which you probably got doing something of value for someone else. Back in the day, money was of actual Value - made of metals that we agreed were valuable. So now we are at essentially digital money, the next level from that is cryptocurrency. Essentially, cryptocurrency is another agreement of value.
One that by design makes all the transactions secure and importantly does away with intermediaries represented by banks, which have pesky fees and differing investment policies and things like that. The main feature of cryptocurrencies, security is provided by Blockchain technology — which is a network of computers having an identical copy of the database and changing its records by a common agreement based on pure mathematics. Those who deposited and withdrew are anonymised, but the amounts are there for all to see, and every time a transaction happens, it verifies itself with another copy of this statement to be sure the transaction is legitimate.
Token is a type of privately issued cryptocurrency, a unit of value that exists and pays off within the ecosystem of a particular business model.

I am not a competitive cyclist. However right now the biggest competition in world cycling is happening every night on the telly - the Tour De France is upon us. Bryan set out to make a film about what happens when an incredibly fast and fit amateur cyclist competes in the hardest non-professional race in the world clean, and then while doping - just like the pros were doing at the time.
What happened next is something that ended up blowing the lid off of a systemic international doping system which had implications in no small part playing a role in the entire Russian national team being banned from participating in the Winter Olympics in South Korea.

But what she shares in this conversation is an unflinching drive to make the world a better place - be it by teaching men how they can be present and supportive during the birth of their children, helping charities from Cambodia to Ethiopia provide better outcomes for mothers and children struggling in those communities, or inspiring others with her own story about how she overcame the adversity of a catastrophic motorcycle accident to go on to achieve all of these things - all of this as the mother of three kids - Lucy is an absolute powerhouse.

Barely 18yrs old, Damien was sentenced to death and ended up spending 18 years and 78 days on death row. Which indeed ended up happening. In the men were released from Prison as part of a plea deal. Two things about this conversation - Go with it.
While what Damien talks about, is an evangelist for and practices every day might not be for you - I got a lot out of hearing how it worked for him and it made me think about how I might double down on my own daily work and ritual that helps me get through the day. And secondly - we connected via Skype from far, far away. Sometimes not everything works as well as it could.
I do have redundancies when I record, just in case - and thankfully in this instance, I had one because the original feed from my mic got lost in the netherworld.

Sonya Pemberton is an Emmy-winning science documentary maker.
We got in touch when a few months ago I put a photo of myself getting some vaccination shots up on instagram. We have a baby on the way. Vaccines are proven effective by the scientific process, so therefore I use vaccines. To the point that people were accusing me of wanting to kill my child, and accusing me of being on the take from pharmaceutical companies.
I explored a bit more as to why people might believe such things. You get more of what you click on. Then you eventually vanish down into a filter-bubble of confirmation bias. Where you never see anything other than the kind of things you click on. Things start to get scary. Eventually, wanting to feel less alone, or looking for others in a time of fear people reach out to others who are also concerned - primarily in Facebook groups.
I see it in the vegan community all the time. Once that identity is set in - any challenge to the base belief of that identity is seen as heresy and ends up pushing people deeper into that delusion. She told me I should have Sonya on the podcast - because of the extraordinary film she made - Jabbed, a film all about vaccines and how they work and the history of vaccines which goes back hundreds and hundreds of years. We managed to make that conversation happen.
It was over Skype, so thanks for understanding the audio quality. In this film, Sonya tells the story of six people, three who had very positive vaccine reactions and three with negative vaccine reactions. I hope you can hear it.

Something that would put people more in touch with the food they ate, and something which would allow recycling of food and waste products in a sustainable way.
This conversation is a little different from a regular podcast I do. It sounds like you think it will, two guys nerding out about mushrooms.

Andrew Taylor made world headlines a few years ago when in seeking to battle food addiction, he lost over 50kg by eating nothing but potatoes for a whole year.
Speaking to Andrew, I learned that even though in my case the addiction was alcohol - our stories were very similar, and the abstinence model was what worked for us both.
During our conversation, I heard many parallels with my own life, my own relationship to food and indeed what I use food for - beyond just sustaining my body to live another day.
I should say upfront, the way Andrew tackled his food addiction is what worked for him - however, there are other ways to deal with this issue, including Overeaters Anonymous which I know has worked well for people close to me.
