So I missed the VMA’s yesterday as I was on a plane back from Maui…fair trade off I guess…but the big news was Miley Cyrus’s performance. Now I have gone on record to say that I am a fan of Miley…I actually dig that “We Can’t Stop” song, yet even I can not defend this performance…wow this is awful in every sense. It honestly looked like she and the choreographers were WASTED when they came up with this performance. When it comes to this performance…I would actually like it if she stopped.
Leave it to Macklemore and Ryan Lewis to bring cred to the VMA’s…their song “Same Love” with Mary Lambert won best video with a social message! That is awesome. Props to them…see, you don’t need to twerk with a bear to get notoriety.
Watching the end with Jennifer Hudson and Mary Lambert trading off on vocals made my eyes watery…that was a real cool moment.
I mentioned that I was in Hawaii….my wife and I went to Maui, and had an awesome time…hell…we even ran into and hung with BJ and his wife while there! We all got together to go Ziplining, which was AWESOME!
Check out BJ “zipping”:
Here is my better half kicking ass on the Zip-lines:
While in Maui, we did the Road To Hana…it’s an all day affair…but well worth it! We left at round 9 AM, and didn’t get back to the hotel until after 6 PM…there is so much to do while on this road…hell…I even stopped to cool off:
The highlight was coming across a coconut ice cream place called “Coconut Glen’s” – man this was some great ice cream!
We had a couple busy days while in Maui,so what did we do at night?
I do have to say that the best times were when we did nothing…this pic sums it up best…Aloha!
Before I left for Maui, I was in LA for Summerslam….I have to give HUGE props to my bud Joe, and everyone at the WWE…they know how to do it right. They rolled out the red carpet, and hooked us up with some awesome interviews, and an amazing experience. I had the opportunity to speak with so many Superstars…I was in Wrestling Nirvana! One of the coolest things happened while there…I was featured on the WWE’s website (wwe.com) … they took pictures from the media day, and a moment I had with Booker T was captured….check it out!
The actual Pay Per View was incredible…the crowd was rocking, the CM Punk vs. Brock Lesnar match was unreal…as was the Daniel Bryan vs. John Cena match…when Aberdeens own beat Cena for the title…the place went nuts…it was too cool to be sitting (or standing) 5 rows back from the ring for that moment!
In case you haven’t seen this video…I think wrestling fans will enjoy it! I was able to sit down with a few of the Superstars of the WWE before Summerslam. Here are some of the highlights as I chat with Damien Sandow, Cody Rhodes, Vicky Guerrero, Jim Ross, and Booker T. Check out the full interviews, and more Superstars at KISW.com.
