Here’s the full text Raw Score from the post JavaJavaJava!!!1:

Tonight’s Raw begins with Randy SnOrton in the ring talking about John Cena using his title shot at WrestleMania to face Orton at No Way Out instead. He then states that he wants Cena to sign a contract obligating him to face Orton at No Way Out. Cena, of course, comes out to sign the contract. Mark Henry, who Cena will face in an arm wrestling match later on, comes out and distracts Cena and Orton RKOs him. 5.5/10 (for a slightly more interesting opening segment, but just slightly)

Back from commercial, we see Orton and Henry being interviewed by Todd Grisham. Generic dialog is had by all. 3/10 (for some very generic dialog that, thankfully, was very short)

Then, Kelly Kelly and Mickie James go up against Victoria and Beth Pheonix. Here’s some interesting dialog that I’m pretty sure JR and King said:

JR – And Kelly Kelly going back to what brought her here in the first place…

King – Yeah a blowjob!

James got the win by Tornado DDTing Victoria. 6.5/10 (for a good, but too short, women’s tag match)

After the match, we see William Regal talking to Hornswoggle about joining the Kiss My Ass Club. It was cut off due to technical gerror. 8.5/10 (for a lulzy technical gerror)

Coming back from the break, Shawn Michaels comes out to vent his frustrations about not winning the Royal Rumble this year and last year as well as not beating John Cena at WrestleMania last year. Chris Jericho comes out, interrupting HBK, to say that he’s going to win the Elimination Chamber match at No Way Out. Then Jeff Hardy comes out to interrupt Y2J, with much applause. He congradulates HBK and Y2J for trying to headline WrestleMania again, but he says that he’ll do whatever it takes to make it. JBL then comes out to much booing. He then does a very Ted DiBiasie-esque promo about how he’s gonna win with Umaga’s help, which is quite interesting. Umaga comes out and then Snitsky comes out, to which the audience chants “Brush your teeth”. Snitsky talks about how he hasn’t had a chance at the title and HBK interrupts him saying that he deserves nothing but a good dental hygenist, which starts an all-out punch-out in the ring. Regal comes out to say that all 6 of them will face off in a tag match tonight. 7.5/10 (for a pretty darn cool promo)

After commercial, Mr. Kennedy goes up against Super Crazy. This match was pretty much Kennedy pwning Super Crazy. Mr. Kennedy wins with an inverted figure-four leglock. He gets on the mic to show MVP Vs Ric Flair, where MVP does some heavy-duty damage to Flair’s leg. Kennedy then gives Naitch the opportunity to come out on next week’s Raw to forfeit their match at No Way Out. 6/10 (for a lame squash match that was saved by a decent after-match promo)

After break, we see Mike Adamle going over the Elimination Chamber match at No Way Out followed by a video of its history. 5.5/10 (for a short but sweet video of the Elimination Chamber)

Then, Santino Marella and Carlito face Brian Kendrik and Paul London. Carlito Backstabbed Kendrik for the win. 4/10 (for a very short match)

After the match, we see Vince getting his ass buffed with a hand buffer (I’m not kidding). 5/10 (for a funny but overdone bit)

Back again from commercial, Vince comes out to have Hornswoggle kiss his ass, explaining that it’s out of tough love. He then says that the parents out there are terrible. He asks all the kids to stand up and says that there all spoiled brats. Hornswoggle comes out after Vince tells him to. Vince says some classic parentisms (”this is gonna hurt me more than it’s gonna hurt you”, “you brought this on yourself”, etc) and tells Hornswoggle to kiss his ass. Hornswoggle hesitates for a while and then Findley comes out to defend Hornswoggle, which greatly irritates Vince and says that he can kiss his ass too. After some more hesitation, Hornswoggle bites Vince’s ass. Findley and Hornswoggle do a funny little jig and leave. Vince then says that he’s going to face Hornswoggle in a No-DQ match next week and says that if Findley interferes, then he’s fired. 7.5/10 (for a very funny bit, especially Findley and Hornswoggle’s little jig)

After the break, Hardcore Holly and Cody Rhodes face off against Lance Cade and Trevor Murdock in a non-title tag match. I missed this match so I won’t give it a score. NA/10 (because I didn’t watch the match)

Back from the break, the main event starts off with Jeff Hardy, Shawn Michaels, and Chris Jericho squaring off against Snitsky, JBL, and Umaga. After a commercial break, the match begins. When Snitsky gets in the ring, the audience chants “Brush your teeth”, which is too-too funny. Jericho, Hardy, and Michaels did their over-the-top rope jump onto Snitsky, JBL, and Umaga at the same time. It was friggin’ rad!! The commercial breaks ends with Jericho falling down for no apparent reason, until the replay shows that JBL punching Jericho is what knocked him down. Hardy gets the win with a Swanton Bomb on Snitsky. This match was awesome!! 8.5/10 (for an excellent main-event match)

After the break, John Cena faces Mark Henry in an arm wrestling match. Henry wins by cheating and Orton tries to RKO Cena, but fails. Cena then FUs Henry. 5/10 (for a so-so match with an awesome FU on Henry)

Tonight’s Raw had some improvements, but they really need to stop doing these short-ass matches. Overall, I give this week’s Raw a 6/10.

I notice that I slowed down my slog, err, podcast a bit this time around. Also, my crappy audio editing skills aren’t quite as bad as they were before.

For those of you who weren’t around when I did my first Raw Score, I basically do a review of the previous night’s WWE Raw, broken down by each segment. I then give each segment a score out of a possible 10 points and then average out the scores to form the overall score for that episode of Raw.

Hey guys, it’s the Andy-San here again with this week’s Raw Score. Enjoy!

Here’s the full Raw Score from the post A Raw Deal? I Think Not!:

We begin tonight with a recap of last night’s Royal Rumble match where John Cena came out the winner. Then, Cena comes out to do a promo about his pectoral injury that should have sidelined him for a year. He said that he risked everything so he could go to WrestleMania. He then challanges Randy Orton, who’s still the WWE Champion, to a title match for tonight. After some back-and-forth verbage, Orton says that he’ll defend the title at No Way Out since Cena can’t wait until WrestleMania. Cena still isn’t satisfied and says that he’ll “get some” tonight. We then go to commercial. 4/10 (for a really predictable promo)

The first match of the night is a tag-team match with Ashley & Mickie James against Jillian & Beth Pheonix. This match was short but sweet. There was a good amount of very interesting moves in this match. The Glamazon picked up the win again with a Hanging Fisherman’s Suplex on James. Seriously, the men should really take notes on what these ladies are doing in the ring. 7/10 (for another good women’s match)

After that, we see Vince and William Regal talking about the upcoming matches for tonight (I think). 3/10 (because I couldn’t understand a word of what they were saying)

After commercial, Regal comes out to address the crowd and he makes a little flub lol (he’s so excited). Anyway, he says that there will be an Elimination Chamber match at No Way Out to decide who will go to WrestleMania to face the WWE Champion. Regal then announces that Umaga, Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho, JBL, Jeff Hardy, and Triple H will be in the match. Then, commercial-time. 6/10 (for some really good booking)

Back from commercial, Carlito goes up against Cody Rhodes (who’s apparantly 1/2 of the Tag-Team Champions along with Hardcore Holly). I gotta say, I’m really diggin’ this Rhodes guy. He was really giving it to Carlito tonight. Unfortunatly, Carlito won with the Backstabber when Rhodes was distracted by Carlito’s manager. 6.5/10 (for an impressive match by Rhodes)

Then, HHH and HBK are shown discussing their match at No Way Out. Trips then says that he needs a tag partner for tonight and tells Shawn to suit up. 6/10 (for a quick and kinda funny promo)

Back again from commercial, we see DX come out to face Umaga and Snitsky. Right before HHH was gonna grapple Snitsky, Trips gets on the mic and asks if anyone has a Tic-Tac or a toothbrush for Snitsky, which promped the audience to chant “Brush Your Teeth.” That was hilarious!! The match itself was pretty cool. HBK took some choice bumps tonight. Trips picked up the win with a Pedigree to Snitsky with much applause. 7.5/10 (for an awesome match with DX)

After the match, we see Orton and JBL discussing their upcoming match. Not much else to say here really. 3/10 (for a bland promo)

Coming back from the break, we see Todd Grisham interviewing Jeff Hardy. Hardy says that he still wants to be the WWE Champion. Then, we cut to Vince talking to Hornswoggle about his loss at the Royal Rumble. He does some nice McMahon-isms and tells Hornswoggle to get out. 6/10 (for a great Mr. McMahon moment that saved us from reTodd)

After break, Mr. Kennedy faces Brian Kendrik. These guys put on a great match, but it was far too short. Mr. Kennedy won this match and then announced that he’s gonna end Ric Flair’s career. In response, Naitch comes out and said “Good-luck and Whooo!!!!” 6.5/10 (for a potentially awesome feud)

Back again from commercial, we have Melina versus Maria. This match wasn’t as good as the other women’s match, but it was still ok. Maria wins with an awesome rollup. Maria and that guy she’s with remind me of Sable and Mark Mero. Alot. 5.5/10 (for a so-so women’s match)

Afterwards, Jericho is interviewed by reTodd. I really don’t know what to make of the oddly serious Y2J. On one hand, I kinda like that he’s branching out as a character. On the other hand, I miss the wise-crackin’ Jericho. 5/10 (for a good promo and an on-the-fence character change)

After the break, the main event starts with Jeff Hardy & Jericho facing Orton & JBL. This match was pretty good. Hardy pulls out some neat offensive manuvers. Jericho also tore JBL up with some of his classic moves. SnOrton put a halt to the Walls of Jericho with an RKO that actually connected lol. JBL pinned Jericho to win the match. Cena came out and laid into Orton and finishing him with an FU. 7/10 (for a great match by Jericho and Hardy)

Tonight’s Raw wasn’t half-bad, but they really need to cut back on the commercials. I mean c’mon, 9 commercials in a 2-hour span? Overall, I give this week’s Raw a 5.6/10.

73/130=5.6/10

For those of you who weren’t around when I did my first Raw Score, I basically do a review of the previous night’s WWE Raw, broken down by each segment. I then give each segment a score out of a possible 10 points and then average out the scores to form the overall score for that episode of Raw.

Well, there’s not much else to say here really, other than I was really trying to speed up my slog, err, podcast too much. This slog also shows off some of my crappy editing skills even before I had video editing software!

Here is the full text review of the January 21, 2008 episode of WWE Raw from the post Raw Score Lives!!!1:

Raw Score – 01/21/2008

Hey guys, it’s the Andy-San here bringing back my Raw Score after two years and 2 months to the day (and on Martin Luther King Day no less). Let’s look at this week’s Raw, shall we?

The first match of the night between Shawn Michaels and Mr. Kennedy was main-event quality. I lol’d when HBK wiped his butt with Kennedy’s thrown shirt before the match. It was also funny how Kennedy bailed the ring when Michaels was about to hit him with Sween Chin Music. This match had a fair amount of technical moves in it early on and later threw in some high-risk moves as well. HBK took a real choice bump when he tried his elbow drop a second time and Kennedy blocked it with his knees. The match ended with Michaels picking up the win with Sweet Chin Music. It’s a shame that this match was the curtain jerker, but it did start the night off strong. 7.5/10 (for a great opening match)

After the HBK-Kennedy match, we see Randy Orton talking to Vince about how he doesn’t want to shake Jeff Hardy’s hand later on tonight. Vince gave him a decent pep-talk and it was on to commercial. 5/10 (for an ok promo that had Vince acting as a father figure to Orton)

The Beth Phoenix vs Mickie James match was surprisingly good. I feel confident about the future of women’s wrestling in the WWE. The match ended with The Glamazon putting a Hanging Fisherman’s Suplex on James. 6.5/10 (for a really good women’s match)

Afterwards, Trips gave a short promo about his upcoming match to get into the Royal Rumble. It was pretty much “I’m gonna be in the Rumble and there’s nothing anybody can do about it”, but it was still good. 5/10 (for a good, but fairly standard promo)

After commercial, Hardcore Holly came in with a snappy comeback on these 2 wrestling n00bs who I don’t know (”If anyone get in My Space, I’m gonna throw ‘em out!”). 5/10 (for a funny quip by Hardcore Holly of all people)

The Randy Orton flashback really showed how far he’s come (I lol’d at the tights he wore on his debut match). 6/10 (for a great flashback promo)

We come back from commercial with a tag match pitting Findly and Hornswoggle against The Highlanders that was far too short. I can’t believe that Fit Findly’s still wrestling, but I’m glad that he can still wrestle well. Hornswoggle won the match with a sweet frogsplash. 6/10 (for a great, but way too short tag match)

Back again from commercial, we see Chris Jericho being choked with a cable by JBL. So JBL’s wrestling again? And on Raw too? I already knew that Jericho was back, but I didn’t know about JBL. Anyway, Jericho enters the ring after the clip for a great promo. It really reminded me of Shawn Michaels’ promo before he made a comeback at Summerslam 2002. 7/10 (for an excellent promo delivered with loads of confidence)

After that, we see Vince talking to Jeff Hardy about how he should shake Orton’s hand. Vince was obviously playing the instigator card here and Hardy assured him that he will “give them something to talk about.” 4/10 (for a short and predictable promo)

Ryan Kendrik’s qualifying match for the Royal Rumble against Umaga was a pwnfest for Umaga. Kendrik pulled out some nice high-flying moves, but Umaga got the win with the Samoan Spike. 4/10 (for a too short match)

The little bit after the match with Maria, Mickie James, Ashley, and some guy was kinda funny. He reminds me of Carlito as far as his arrogance goes. 5/10 (for a kinda funny bit of filler)

After commercial, we see a clip of Vince on Celebrity Apprentice. Then, we see King with 3-D glasses on because Raw’s now in HD. Next, there was the ubersweet Jeff Hardy flashback promo with the song Rooftops by Lost Prophets. 6.5/10 (for Hardy’s choice flashback promo and King with 3-D glasses lol)

Coming back from commercial, we have Carlito facing Hardcore Holly. This one seemed better suited for Sunday Night Heat I think. Carlito got the win with the Backstabber. 4/10 (for another short and rather bland match)

Back again from another commercial, we see a short clip of HHH winning the 2002 Royal Rumble after coming back from a quad injury. There’s a brief appearance of Mr. Perfect (RIP) being eliminated by HHH. William Regal comes out to address Trips before his match and announces that his match is a gauntlet match against three people with Royal Rumble rules. First up is Snitsky, who lays into The Game and comes close to eliminating him, but is thrown over. Next is Mark Henry, who seems to slow down the match. Henry came very close to throwing HHH over the top, but Trips beats him too. Finally is Regal himself, who unleashes a flurry of punches upon entering the ring. Despite that, Triple H comes out on top and throws Regal over the top. 5.5/10 (for a predictable match, but Regal’s expression after HHH beat Mark Henry was priceless)

After yet another commercial, Vince comes out and mentions that Raw’s in HD and brings out Randy Orton and Jeff Hardy one at a time. Vince admits that their upcoming match at the Royal Rumble doesn’t need any hype and wonders what’s gonna happen. Orton gets on the mic and says that he underestimated Hardy and he has won Orton’s respect. Hardy says that he doesn’t care about Orton’s respect and he would rather shake other peoples’ hands before Orton’s. Then, Hardy shakes JR, King, and Lillian’s hand and goes out into the audience to shake various audience members’ hands. Orton then offers his hand when Hardy gets back in the ring and Hardy lays Orton out with the Twist of Fate instead. Despite Hardy’s so-so mic skills, he made up for it with excellent audience interaction. 8.5/10 (for Hardy’s interaction with the audience)

It’s been a long time since I really sat down and watched wrestling. I pretty much gave up on it since Benoit died, but after reading my old Raw Scores, I decided to bring it back. Tonight’s Raw was pretty good, but I felt that it was rushed and trying to fit in too much stuff. Having a commercial after just about everything didn’t help matters either. Overall, I give this week’s Raw a 5.7/10.

Here’s the original description of the video:

Sup, it’s the Andy-San here with a new slog. After 2 years and 2 months to the date yesterday, I’ve decided to bring my Raw Score out of retirement. Enjoy!

Jonny Diff – Dramatic Pillow Beatdown

If you can’t see the video above, click here.

This video still makes me laugh, even though the video quality is piss-poor at best. The main thing that makes me giggle like a schoolgirl is the slowed-down dog barks. There’s really not too much else to this video, so I’ll let it speak for itself.

Here’s the original description of the video:

Hey guys, Andy-San here. My bro recorded this funny vid of himself and his friend beating up my other bro with a pillow from his cell phone and extended it. It borders between being too repetative and just repetative enough. Oh, and the music comes in all of a sudden so it’s not sync problems. Peace!

Ice Ice Baby

If you can’t see the above video, click here.

Man, does this bring back memories!

This video was recorded during the Urbana’s Got Talent night and was my first of a total of three appearances onstage. I didn’t even really plan to do this. What happened was I was heckling the emcee in a lighthearted manner because he was doing Ice Ice Baby and sucking horribly. If you thought I was bad, this guy was worse. I then had Eriopolis quickly get his camera out to record it, but the battery ran out after only a couple of minutes.

After this one, I did my guitar solo which only the audio was recorded on my friend Dan’s Archos uber-MP3 & video player because Eriopolis’ camera battery died. It’s up on my old Xanga somewhere. Oh wait, here it is:

I’m thinking about putting it up on YouTube so you guys can hear it.

For my appearance onstage, I did a karaoke of Crazy Train by Ozzy. That wasn’t recorded at all, but it’s probably for the best because I didn’t like the way I did it. I didn’t sing it so much as I screamed it, and I don’t fancy myself a screamer.

Here’s the original description:

Hello everyone, it’s the Andy-San here. This time, I’m bringing the phat beatz with my rendition of Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice. The camera went dead near the end, but fortunatly, it caught the majority of it. Enjoy!

P.S: My stepdad’s coming home tomorrow so I won’t be online for awhile. I hope to be back online by either Sunday or Monday.

Guitar Solo Medley

If you can’t see the video above, click here.

Well here it is, my infamous guitar solo video. It has spawned the catchphrase “finger-lickin’ tremellow” as well as gave me a reason to work on my rhythm playing before I step up to do a solo.

I use a Squier Strat that is plugged into the same rig I use today; a Digitech Metal Master pedal plugged into a Behringer Ultra Chorus plugged into a Johnson Reptone 15 uber-crappy amp.

I miss my Strat! It’s still at the music store so I might be getting it back soon. Stay tuned for that!!

After recording the piano videos, I thought it was time to show off my guitar skills too. I was preparing a little guitar solo thing for the upcoming Urbana’s Got Talent show at UU and wanted to show the guys a sneak peek of it. I got Eriopolis and his then-roommate and my friend Dan to come to my dorm room to record it.

When I did go to the talent show, I ended up performing THREE times!!! I first did a karaoke of Vanilla Ice’s Ice Ice Baby, which was caught on video and will be the next vid I upload.

I then did my guitar solo thingy, but the camera ran out of power so I had Dan record the audio on his Archos uber-MP3 player. I put it up on my Xanga, but I’m thinking of grabbing it and putting it on YouTube as well as various other MP3s. What do you guys think?

The third time I went onstage, I did a karaoke of Ozzy’s Crazy Train and nearly blew the emcee’s head off with the “ALL ABOARD, HAHAHA!!!” in the opening. Unfortunately, it wasn’t recorded at all so it was lost to the annuls of time. It’s probably for the best because I wasn’t really singing it so much as I was screaming it.

In the end, I came in third place and walked away with a whopping nothing except for a YouTube video, an MP3, and a compliment from Dan saying that I could be good at music if I would practice more. Well, that’s a compliment in my book anyway.

Here’s the original description:

Hey homes, it’s the Andy-San here. This video is of me performing a practice solo for an upcoming Talent Show. I noticed my rediculous facial expressions after this was shot. Besides that, I feel like I’m ready for the Talent Show. Comments are appreciated. Laterz!

Lost Vlog 06 – How To Make Tuna Salsa

If you can’t see the above video, click here.

Oddly enough, this vlog was recorded the day I was informed that I had to vacate my apartment.

Here are the ingredients for Tuna Salsa complete with metric equivalents for my international viewers (keep in mind that these are my portions and you can adjust them to fit your tastes):

– 4 tablespoons (60 ml) of Miracle Whip salad dressing

– 1/2 to 1 cup (118 to 236 ml) of Wal-Mart’s Great Value hot salsa

– 1 1/2 tablespoons (22 ml) of A1 Bold & Spicy steak sauce

– A cereal bowl that is full but not overflowing with tortilla chips

– A 5 oz (142 gm) can of tuna

– 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of Sweet Baby Ray’s Raspberry Chipotle BBQ sauce (optional)

– 1 table spoon (the spoon itself)

This dish shouldn’t be too difficult to make once you watch the video, and it’s perfect as a lunch for people living alone like I was at the time. I hope you enjoy making and eating Tuna Salsa!!

Lost Vlog 5 – New Year's Party 2008

If you can’t see the video, click here.

*Editor’s Note: there is no underage drinking involved. The only people who were drinking were people of age. Like me!*

I gotta be honest; uploading this vlog might piss off some people because I told them I wouldn’t upload it. However, I just couldn’t resist any longer because just the beginning alone is too damn funny!

This was recorded at my friend Cody’s apartment with several of my friends like Eriopolis, his girlfriend Andrea, Ben (from the karate videos), Tylor and Goofy (formerly of Eights and Aces), Cody’s now-fiance Danielle, his brother Casey, and a couple others.

In the beginning, we were playing Truth or Dare and someone (I forget who) dared Ben to grab Cody’s balls for 5 seconds (it went from a minute to 40 seconds to 5 seconds).

After that, Ben dared me to suck on Goofy’s nose for 10 seconds. Then, a bunch of weird stuff happens. I’ll let the video speak for itself. Enjoy!
