Boeing Employees Have Some Fun By Talking About How Big 7,047 Would Be
Boeing Employees Have Some Fun By Talking About How Big 7,047 Would Be
Hey guys. Dwayne. Pete. Ryan. Look, I’m sure you guys mean well with this whole ‘intervention’ thing but it’s misplaced, not to mention hurtful. I mean, guys: I’m not a crack addict-I’m a crack enthusiast.
There’s a huge difference, okay Dwayne? What I do between these three-and-a-half walls is my business, and my business alone. I’m a responsible and oftentimes-law abiding citizen: don’t I deserve this? Sometimes after a long day of hustling for crack, I’ll just want to relax with some sweet, sweet crack. Who doesn’t like to relax? I mean, no one looks twice at Jacob when his “two beers” suddenly turns into four; but I smoke a little crack and have a razor-fight with my suddenly self-aware beard and I’m the one with the “substance problem” and “severe cuts”. How unfair is that?
I like my crack, guys. Don’t make a federal case out of this, okay? Seriously. Don’t.
You guys are being prudes. I’m not an addict; I’m just a fan, and more importantly, a well informed consumer. For example, my last pipe was of some really great vintage stuff from 122nd street. A Tuesday batch, with the powdery undertones of baking soda. Quite delectable; try telling that to a “crack fiend” okay? They wouldn’t be able to tell you the difference between Yeti Stone and Beige Bomber if their lives depended on it. And don’t I deserve to spoil myself a little, after all the horrible things I had to do to earn this crack? I think so. Crack is just a fun little hobby of mine, just like my other new hobby, selling sex for money to buy crack with.
You guys are being so dramatic; yikes! You sound like my parole officer here! You’ve got to look at the bigger picture. I mean, does Logan live in a “baseball house”? Of course not! He’s just a regular guy who happens to like baseball, and besides, he lives in my crack-house anyway, so I guess the point is moot. What I mean is that someone isn’t defined by just one of their passions, just like their sexuality isn’t defined by whatever horrible, horrible things they do to score their next fix.
I don’t have a drug problem, guys. That’s crazy to say. I mean, if anything, my biggest problem is when I don’t have drugs! Am I right? Am I-, oh, come on, dudes. That line totally killed in the holding cells.
Do I have a drug habit? No; but do I have an awesome, laid back fun drug hobby? You can bet your last crumpled and shameful dollar I do! But really, at its core, it’s just a small social thing. If I’m with a friend like Kevin or, say, Crackhead Paul, well yeah, maybe we’ll smoke for a few days. It’s nothing, guys. Maybe we’ll just hang out or order some pizza, or take a quick drive to China, or fight the spiders, oh God, all the spiders. It’s a nice fun time and no one gets hurt, because, as I’ve explained a thousand times before, those “pedestrians” were ghost-monsters anyway, sent by the spider-king Juhr.
Hmm. So be it. I think you can see yourself out past the roaches. And if you ever want to apologize, well, you can come over here and smoke the peace pipe with me. Just do me a solid and advance me some cash. Come on guys. You know I’m good for it.

Speaking with the New York Times on The Avengers and all things Dr. Horrible, the Buffy creator countered the possibility of ever seeing the good Doctor on a Broadway stage, implying that “my heart is more in the idea of a sequel.”
The greatest difficulty in finally mounting a sequel to the famed internet musical composed, shot and released out of Whedon’s own pocket during the 2007 Writer’s Strike will be coordinating the schedules of its lead actors. Neil Patrick Harris maintains active duty on How I Met Your Mother through 2012, while Nathan Fillion remains committed to Castle and even Felicia Day has production on The Guild to worry about.
Still, ever the optimist, Whedon did have a few updates to go on, saying:
“We’ve got several songs near completion and we’ve got a very specific structure. We’ve just all got jobs. And it’s not like Neil, Nathan and Felicia ain’t busy either. We get together at Christmas and family occasions, and then play each other our partial songs and go, “Yup, that’s still exactly as it was the last time we played it. We’re great.”
And the sequel’s title, among other details?
It’s going to be “Dr. Horrible and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.” And it’s going to be just as good as the other one. I don’t know why people are upset about that title. And by the way, by the time we finish it, Neil will be just as old. No, I’m not saying anything.”
Hey, at least we’re making progress.
What do you think? Will Dr. Horrible ever truly see a “Brand New Day,” or remain stuck in a freeze-ray, slipping away?! Could I do this all day? So they say!
Missy and Mandee Taylor
NinjaPimp Exclusive Interview
NinjaPimp says, “What a set!”
Hello Mandee and Missy. How are you two doing today?
Missy: I’m doing great!
Can you tell the fans what you are wearing right now?
Missy: A t-shirt and tiny boy shorts, I just woke up.
Mandee: A jean mini skirt, black tank top and a black Element hoodie with pink letters on the front.
And how old are you?
Missy: Just turned 20 on July 31st! :) Happy belated birthday to us!
So you have your own website, but didn’t you just graduate high school?
Missy: Well, we graduated a couple years ago actually, but yes Mandee and I do have our own website! I’m very excited about it!
Is it weird going from high school to being internet models?
Missy: Well, actually I had a job before being an internet model…Hooters waitress :) So I kind of had some time to get used to being looked at as a sexual being. (Laughs).
Phil-Flash is in charge of your site. Who is Phil Flash?
Missy: Hmm, this is a pretty deep question (Laughs). I’m afraid I do not know the “inner” Phil yet, so far he’s perverted and cruel to us models! Just kidding. He’s actually very nice, and extremely fun to work with, although I am waiting for one of these shopping trips the other models talk about being so much fun!
Mandee: He’s Phil…he’s pretty cool, if you like that kinda thing….Just kidding! We came to work with him through Roxxie.
What do your future plans include? What are your career plans?
Missy: For the present future, I plan on doing more and more sets for the site, I can’t wait for the holidays approaching. Oooh, I have some good ideas! Eventually though, lets get serious for a minute :) I want to go back to school, and I’m seriously thinking about becoming a vet. Then again, I am thinking about interior design also. I know, two very different fields. I’ll have to pick one someday.
Mandee: Not sure…I mean, tomorrow, I plan to wake up and probably do something with the day….I don’t know about career plans…I like to think I have a little time to settle on that decision.
Are you fraternal twins?
Missy: No, we are identical twins! People are always assuming that we are not twins, or that we’re fraternal because we don’t look exactly alike to a T anymore. Identical twins are two babies that are from one egg splitting in half. All our DNA is the same. However, lifestyle and such can change your height, weight, hair etc. If we had our hair exactly alike, I bet nobody could tell us apart. (aside from the tattoos, little freckles etc.)
Mandee: You can’t tell us apart, but right now I think anyone could tell us apart, then again, people still get confused….people today at work were confused as to who I was…they thought I was missy and that I myself wasn’t there then I was like “No- I’m me” and they’re like “Oh, well where’s Missy?” I’m like, “uhh she’s not here tonight.”…haha.
No wonder people get confused. Ok, now to high school. Did y’all party a lot in high school? Got any good party secrets about each other?
Missy: Oooh yes I partied a LOT throughout high school. I used to be into clubs and raves, I was a bad bad girl back then, party wise I mean. Nowadays I’m more bad, um, privately? I’m actually kind of over it by now to be honest with you. I occasionally party nowadays, but I’m more into spending time with my dogs, relaxing with good friends, being online, cooking for sure!
Mandee: Ehh… You know everyone’s done some partying here or there etc etc…but I’m not a partier at all now…I might drink maybe like, four times a year if that…it makes me feel like crap
Can you tell us a little about your website? (www.taylortwins.com)
Missy: It’s me and Mandee, identical twin sisters in hot hot poses! You may not believe your eyes! It definitely borders on some of the sister/sister morals. Some of it of course is torture from Phil.
Mandee: Well, It’s an NN site…with twins…the only one with twins actually…So that’s pretty cool that we’re the first ones. :) 2 picture updates a week, journal updates at least once a week and video updates….pretty cool. I think NN is better than nude because it leaves some mystery which is way hotter than just getting what you want. :)
Is this a PG-13 site? If not, what rating would you give it?
Missy: Definitely not! I’ve actually had people complain to me that they didn’t see the 18+ on the start of our website…and they didn’t know how explicit it was. etc. I’d say it’s definitely rated R. Maybe even X, but not XXX because it’s not THAT hardcore.
Mandee: I’d say no…at least rated R..we’re over 18 so everyone looking at us half naked should be too.
Have you ever considered working with the Potter Twins or Cali Marie and Cherish
Missy: I can hook you all up for a sisters pillow fight or something. I just saw the potter twins on your ninjapimp.com site, they are HOT! and the cherish twins, well they are pretttty hardcore, but a pillow fight wouldn’t be so bad ;)
Mandee: Haven’t considered it…..aren’t they in p0rn? We’re not in p0rn….we’re more like sexy “mature content,” I’d say.
Yeah, I guess they are a little more “adult.” A pillow fight between two sets of twins would still be awesome If not the pillow fight, then what other projects are you working on? What are your hobbies?
Missy: Currently we are just focusing on our website since it just started, project wise. My hobbies: Cooking, taking my dogs to the dog park, sewing, occasionally going out dancing, definitely taking pictures! My camera comes almost everywhere with me :)
Mandee: Hhmm…I dunno about all that…but my hobbies well, I guess I could have a number of “hobbies” ranging from drawing to sewing….doing makeup, I dunno…anything creative.
Have you ever checked out Afro-Squad.com? What do you think of the site?
Missy: It’s an awesome site! You gotta love a site with pics of hot girls, and interviews!
Mandee: Fcuk, I love it. It really turns me on. It is the greatest site ever. I actually once slept with KrazyMan. He is great in bed. It is that gigantic wiener!
I liked Mandee’s answer better. On another topic: Do you have anything else to say to your fans?
Missy: I’m having so much fun with our website, I can’t wait to add more sexy/fun photos to it! Thank you so very much to everyone who likes our stuff and has such sweet things to say :)
Mandee: Thanks to everyone who loves/supports our site and I’d like to let you all know that we really do appreciate it and you’re awesome!
Afro-Squad’s Classy Lady
Amateur Web Goddess, Oasis
Oasis, how are you doing tonight?
Today’s the day after Christmas and we had a full day yesterday. I’m recovering :) Sitting on the couch with the laptop, answering some email and watching my Patriots on Monday Night Football.
So where do you live now-a-days?
We’re in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. We spend most of our time here, with trips once a month or so out to Las Vegas, Phoenix or Southern California. We usually also take a couple big trips a year – in the winter to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, and in the summer we try to alternate and
visit new places. This summer we’re going to try to do a big trip up the east coast from Miami to Boston.
Can you describe and average work day to us? When do you get up, what do you do in your spare time, how do you prepare for work?
I think my average day is actually pretty mundane. I don’t have a regular job, which is pretty nice, so my schedule is pretty flexible but I do try to stick to a regular schedule just to make sure I get some work done. I usually get up about 8:00 and take my dog for a three mile walk. Then, as I eat breakfast I go through the email that’d come through overnight. I’ll usually spend about an hour answering the most pressing emails. Depending on the day, I’ll edit pictures for an update to my main website, cum2oasis.com, or for one of our other sites (we also run a strickly party site, realorgyparties, a stricktly interracial site, oasiswentblack, and a couple sites for friends of ours like kinkykacey.com). I try to get an update on one of our sites every day, and my main site at least three times a week.
Do you follow the news at all? If so, what do you think about our troops overseas?
I go through phases. Right now, I’m off the news (I decided I was spending way too much time reading cnn.com in the mornings). I most definitely support our troops – I have a couple good friends in Iraq right now and my brother was in the military for a good number of years (he was over for the
first war). I don’t particularly support the war, and I don’t care much for Bush…
Is there anything you would like to say to those troops?
Just to be careful and come back safe. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
We recently e-mailed Jenna Jameson and she told us she was working a business deal with Mike Tyson. What would you think about doing a scene with Iron Mike?
No thanks. He’s not my type. (well, from what I know about him anyway). I actually prefer your average guy to your body-builder or celebrity. Give me a cute computer geek any day :)
We also do a lot of interviews with professional wrestlers. Have you ever been a wrestling fan?
No. professional wrestling is too much of a soap opera for me :)
What has been your favorite video to film?
Our videos aren’t really “professional” … so its not really like filming. we’re out having a good time, and we just happen to have a video camera running. There are very few of our scenes that are scripted at all… and I have to say that the ones that are scripted are my least favorite. Lucky for me that we’re so spontaneous!!
What has been your favorite party?
Again, its very hard to pick just one!! We did a party in New Orleans a few years ago at one of my favorite bars and had about 150 people there, including 30 or so other webgirls. That was a blast…
Who have been your favorite people to work with?
I don’t really work with professional pOrn stars. Probably as close as I could get would be a couple scenes I did with Rodney Moore. I really dig him because he shoots gonzo and is a lot of fun. I’ve shot a whole lot with cathy from cathyscraving.com… not only is she a lot of fun to work with, but she’s also one of my favorite people on the planet.
Is there anyone you don’t like working with?
The great thing about what I do is that I don’t shoot with anyone I don’t like :) I only do what i want to do and when i want to do it. Because I’m not shooting, I’m having fun. If i meet up with someone with the intention of shooting with him/her, and then don’t like them, then I don’t shoot.
I’ve read a lot of reviews and fan blogs, and it seems that you have a huge following. Is there anything you would like to say to your fans?
Come on out and party sometime!!
Do some people get jealous of your success? What do your neighbors think of your career?
My neighbors gave me a little bit of crap after our last big party because too many people were parked in our cul-de-sac, but other than that we haven’t had any problems here in Havasu. Pretty much everyone in town knows who we are and what we do. But no one really cares, which is one of the reasons we’ve lived here for the last five years. we still have a “wild west” attitude where people tend to stay out of other people’s business.
What do you think of Afro-Squad.com?
Oh, I LOVE it :)
Have you checked out our Pimp of the Year pictures?
Who do you think should be Afro-Squad’s 2007 Pimp of the Year?
Snoop for sure! I need to get my dog to grow his hair like that :)
Can you tell us about the “win a date” with Oasis contest?
Its a chance for regular guys out there, my fans (haha), to shoot with me if they’re interested. they need to read my rules and fill out my stud application (at http://cum2oasis.com/stud.htm), and then if I like what they have to say, and their pic, and they can come to where I’m at, they get the chance to come out and have dinner, and most likely even more!
So where do you see yourself in 10 years? Will you be entertaining male fans in front of the screen when you hit 30?
Oh, I’ve already hit 30. working on the big 3-5 now! who knows what I’ll be doing in 10 years. If we’re still having fun with the site, then we’ll still be doing the site. What we do is all about having a good time.
We get to see a lot of the “dirty” Oasis, but can you tell us a little bit about your sweeter side? Do you cry at sad movies, volunteer, or give money to charity?
We did a benefit here in town to raise money for all the pets displaced by hurricane Katrina. We raised $1,500 for the best friends animal society and their rescue efforts. not a whole lot of money, but it was our first time doing something like that and we’ve already committed to make it an annual event to raise money for animal shelters and rescue programs…
Are you a different person when you back home with the family, or are you always the same person we see on the DVDs?
I’ll tell you a story. About six years ago I was driving my sister home from Christmas dinner at my grandmother’s. i don’t know exactly what we were talking about, but I told her about our lifestyle and the website. I expected her to be shocked … but all she said was “oh, I’m not surprised”. I don’t talk sex or parties or p0rn with my family, but my personality doesn’t change.
Before I let you go, do you have any questions for the guys at Afro-Squad?
How do I get to be a Afro-Squad??? :)
A Afro-Squad just represents the stuff that guys love. Since guys already love you, consider yourself an honorary Afro-Squad. Well thanks for the interview. I wish you the best of luck in life.
So, do you make good money working at Hooter’s? I work day shift so I only make about $50.00 in tips. The night shift girls make a lot more than I do.
Are you also going to school? Right now I go to Darton college… just for my general studies. I plan on going to the New York Film Academy when I’m done with all that.
When did you graduate from high school? Last year 2006.
Have you ever done any nude modeling? No, I would do a nude photo only if it was tasteful. Now, if playboy asked that would be different I’d be like hell yeah.
Have you ever dated a guy who you met while at work? I‘ve been on a couple dates with some guys I met while working. None of them were keepers. They think that because you work at Hooters your gonna give it up. That’s not true. Maybe some of the girls will but not me.
Next time I go to Hooter’s, what is the best thing I can do to get on the good side of my waitress when I first get there? Go up to a girl and ask her where are her tables at… It makes us feel like you want us to sit with you and we will treat you nicer. Whatever you do not shake your glass to get are attention that is so f’ed up.
What is the average tip for a $10 dinner? If the girl was horrible tip her a dollar just for trying. If she was sweet and did everything right, always had your drink full give her $5.00. Remember we live off are tips. I only get paid $2.13 an hour.
What do you honestly think of the orange shorts? They are so ugly. I love wearing my black ones. The orange shorts is what Hooter’s is known for so I have to like them.
What rules does Hooter’s make you girls follow? We have to wear a lot of makeup. You can not have tats. If you do (like me) you have to cover them up with makeup. You can not wear jewelry, even if you are married. Your boyfriend can not visit you at work, and you can not hangout after work. If you are seen wearing your uniform outside of work you will get fired.
Have you ever fooled around with a boyfriend while wearing the Hooter’s outfit? No not yet. haha
Have you ever fooled around at Hooter’s? No, like I said your man is not allowed at Hooter’s. Plus they have cameras everywhere.
What’s the most embarrassing thing that has happened to you as a waitress? I’ve dropped plates filled with food before. The most embarrassing thing for me is this one time I went to ask if everything okay, but I burped! haha
Is there anything else you would like to talk about? Yeah, Come to the hooters of Albany, Georgia. Sit at my table and give me a fat tip. Go to the Bikini contest April 28th!! Vote for me its my first one.
Well, thanks for your time. Thank you, SnowMan! This interview made my day. Viva AfroSquad!
Reality Ryan, AKA GQ Money Interview
Exclusively by The NinjaPimp
GQ, please tell us a little bit about yourself.
Well, I grew up in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago always a wrestling fan. My mom got me into wrestling, and I used to watch it on TV with her, and also go to live shows with her as well. I was a high school wrestler, and captain of my team junior and senior year. I have two gold medals in international freestyle wrestling competition, as I competed in the 1992 Maccabi Games which is like a Jewish Junior Olympics. I went to college at the University of Colorado at Boulder, and once I graduated I started pursuing my career in professional wrestling. Iâ€™ve been on a reality show, been a finalist in a contest to become the Los Angeles weather man and Iâ€™m one incredibly good looking guy.
Where have you wrestled?
I got my start in Denver, CO. I was brought in to help start an indy with a man named Dan Magnus and Bobbye Black. We had great success starting the CWO, an organization that drew large crowds (more than 10-times as many people as any indy that ran in the area) and had great media exposure. As the CWO ran its course, I moved out to Los Angeles to work with XPW. I climbed my way up the ranks there (both on screen and behind the scenes), until XPW ran itâ€™s course and then I moved out to Nashville to work with TNA. I moved back to CA where Iâ€™m now involved in the MTV Wrestling Society X project. I have wrestled in CA, PA, NC, AL, TN, GA, SC, CO and a few other states as well.
What did you think of XPW?
XPW was the best! I loved it. I loved our renegade vibe, the hatred by the critics and the no rules mentality. We said what we wanted, did what we wanted and let nobody tell us we couldnâ€™t do something. There were no rules, no boundaries and no limits. I was allowed to explore my creativity and come up with ideas that no other wrestling company would ever think of doing. XPW got a bad rap, but if you really watched it, it was a really good product. The TV-show was hysterical, and the intensity at live shows was incredible. Everybody put us down, but there isnâ€™t a fed out there that offered what we did. People were just haters, but that was fine with us.
Can you tell us a little bit about some of the guys in XPW? Maybe Pogo or Supreme.
All the guys were cool at the time. We all got along and just had a great time being part of a company that was different. Pogo was a nice guy, but could be intimidating as well. I wrestled him once and I was scared shitless. The match was great though, and was an awesome display of a little man getting tossed by a big man. Hell, I got bieled (beeled) (sp?) from one turnbuckle clear across the ring to the other. It was sweet! Supreme was cool, but you knew when you were working with him it was time for business. I remember doing a segment for XPW-TV where Supreme came into my balloon shop office (yes, I ran GQ Balloons for a while) and beat the crap out of me. That was stiff, and it was rough, but it was cool. It made for good TV.
What is your favorite match?
Raw Sewage aka the 30-foot sh!t bomb. In XPW if I wrestled (as opposed to managing) it was always against Angel. We had a great feud and one of our highlight moments was in a match where he sidewalk slammed me off a 30-foot tower into a kiddy pool of raw sewage which was on a stack of two tables. That match was fun, and so was the Genocide cage match. Once again Angel and I ended up high above the ground, this time 20-feet up on a rickety home made cage that we thought was going to collapse. I tossed him off, and then jumped off the cage with a 20-foot cross body on top of him, and the security guards who were checking up on him.
Is there anyone that you don’t get along with?
Then, no! Now, oh yeah. My former best friend Kaos and I donâ€™t talk at all. He fucked me over big time when we moved to Nashville and I will never forgive him for that. Also Smokey Carmichael (a friend from Colorado who I brought into XPW) who also fucked me over when we moved to Nashville. The pricks moved out without saying anything, without leaving a note or making a phone call, nothing. And this was the day before rent was due. Fuck them!
What do you think of Rob Black?
Rob is a great guy and is very misunderstood. Heâ€™s always been good to me and allowed me to do what I do best, perform. If you get to know the real Rob black heâ€™s a good guy. The public persona, well, that could be rough. The persona is an asshole, the person is not.
How did you get the name GQ Money?
The 1st XPW show I went out to see I was sitting in the bleachers pre show with my buddy The Giant (not WWEâ€™s) watching the set up and just checking things out. Lizzy Borden came up to me and said, â€œYou must be GQ Moneyâ€ and that was that. I hated the name, thought it was too clichÃ©, but itâ€™s cool. The funny thing, back when I was a kid my rap name was GQ as well.
Where can people learn more about you?
What do you think of Ninjapimp.com?
Itâ€™s a fun site with great interviews.
Have you checked out our Afrosquad page?
Oh yeah. Itâ€™s a well known fact that if I could grow an afro I would. Iâ€™m funkdafied, fortified and amplified to the next level!
What about wrestling as an evil pimp?
The GQ Money character had a little bit of an evil pimp vibe, especially once I got to Philly and blended the original GQ Money persona with the Ultra Violent GQ Money persona. I was almost involved with a pimp and ho wrestling fed once but it didnâ€™t work. In college we threw a 40oz pimp and ho party where my band The Electric Manny Schevitz playedâ€¦ It was tight. I also made a TV commercial for a school project for â€œPlayboy Malt Liquorâ€ because â€œPimpinâ€™ Aintâ€™ Easy.â€ Oh yeah!!!!
Do you think there is a problem with drug use in wrestling?
The only problem is when individual people abuse the drugs and canâ€™t use them responsibly. Taking pain pills for pain is fineâ€¦ Taking 26 pain pills for pain is not! Do people do drugs? Sure they do. I never had first hand experience with anyone who had a problem, but drugs are always around. I think thatâ€™s the case with any aspect of the entertainment business. Itâ€™s part of the lifestyle.
Who is the most beautiful woman in wrestling?
Hands down, nobody holds a candle to indy, XPW and Wrestling Society X wrestler Valentina (J Love).
What is the most insane thing you saw in XPW?
Supreme catching on fire after I gave him a diamond cutter from the top rope threw a flaming table! He got burned bad, and spent a couple of days in the hospital. I felt so bad, even though it wasnâ€™t my fault. I was involved in the â€œstuntâ€ so I just had this enormous feeling of guilt. Supremeâ€™s kid never liked me after that, but I couldnâ€™t blame him? As far as he knew I torched his dad. The craziest thing was I had to go on TV week after week and brag about it.
What was it like to be behind the scenes over there?
A whole lot of fun. It was a fantastic 2.5 years of my life. At the same time as working there, I was also touring the country doing stand up comedy with Ron Jeremy, so it was a pretty fun time! Ob and I always clicked creatively and came up with crazy ideas. He wasnâ€™t afraid to try something different, and neither was I. Kevin (Kleinrock) and (White Trash Johnny) Webb were always the voices of reason, while me and Rob were always like, â€œWhy canâ€™t we do that? This is wrestling, there are no rules!â€
Do you have anything to ask us, the writers of ninjapimp?
You ever been anally probed by an alien named Zolorp? Have you ever drank sheepâ€™s milk straight from the sheepâ€™s teet? Have you ever had the urge to urinate on yourself while waiting in line at the movies?
Any parting words?
Smoke and mirrors!!!
Well thanks for your time.
Pete Mitchell – No More Kings
No More Kings are a Los Angeles-based rock band fronted by lead singer Pete Mitchell (born September 7th, 1973 in Providence, Rhode Island). No More Kings’ music is known for its frequent references to figures in pop culture, most notably Johnny Lawrence from The Karate Kid, Michael and K.I.T.T. from Knight Rider, Johnny 5 from Short Circuit, and Dungeons and Dragons. The band’s songs are written by Pete along with his longtime friend Neil Robins of the Louisville-based band Dirt Poor Robins.
No More Kings have played shows all across the U.S. since 2006, playing most frequently in Los Angeles.
The name “No More Kings” comes from an episode of Schoolhouse Rock!, one of many of No More Kings’ inspirations. The particular episode dealt with the Pilgrims leaving England, seeking freedom and independence.
Pete studied fine art in college and has worked for Disney and the Jim Henson Company; he is an accomplished animator and also speaks Japanese. He designed the interior album art for the band’s first album as well as the album art and packaging for their second album. Pete claims his main sources of musical inspiration are the Beatles, Michael Jackson, Radiohead, Billy Joel, Beck, and Genesis.
Gentlemen, welcome to NinjaPimp Online Magazine. How are you doing today? Doing great! Today is a beautiful day in sunny Los Angeles. The birds are singing. The dogs are barking. Love is all around.
Can you introduce the band members for us? Sure. There are six of us: six young strapping lads. On guitar, we have Christian Wojcik and Josh Taylor. Playing the super-bass we have Beau Burtnick. Kicking the tasty grooves on the drums, we have David “D.G.” Grant. Tickling the keys is my man Timmy Maglothin. And I’m Pete Mitchell. I sing.
So how did your come up with your band name? Can you tell us about it? The band name is from an episode of School House Rock. I grew up watching those little animations. I pretty much got all my history lessons from those things. Anyway, “No More Kings” was a song about the pilgrims coming over from England. I loved the sense of the American independent spirit that the song evoked.
We love your “Sweep the Leg” video. Whose idea was that? Thanks! Yeah, that video was a lot of fun to make. We are going to be rolling out a bunch of behind-the-scenes footage of it on www.sweeptheleg.com very soon. The idea really came from Billy Zabka, the guy that played Johnny Lawrence in The Karate Kid. He really just went nuts with it, and got everybody from the movie back together. It was so fun to be part of that, and watch it unfold.
What was the best part of filming that? Great question. There was a lot about that video that I loved. Probably the best moments for me were all the wire stunts Ã¢â‚¬â€œ jumping up onto the bus, the Matrix crane kick stuff, and falling through the ceiling of the tournament. I mean, I had never done anything like that before. It was really exhilarating.
What do the fans thing of the video? The fans love it. Even people that don’t like the song or the band love the video. I think it tapped into 23 years of fan subculture.
Who or what inspired the song “Leaving Lilliput”? I really enjoy the Gulliver’s Travels theme. Ted Danson.
“Zombie Me” is also a great. Who wrote that? I did [Pete]. I write all the lyrics and melodies for the songs. And my buddy Neil Robins [of the band Dirt Poor Robins], writes all the instrumentation. We’re like Batman and Robin. Or Batman and RobinsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Dirt Poor Batman.
Are all of those songs on one CD? If so, what is it and where can we buy it? They are! Thanks for asking. It’s all on one action-packed CD, available on iTunes, amazon.com, and most retail stores.
Our website is www.afro-squad.com. What do you think of the site? I love “Episode Zero”! Neil and I used to make tons of ninja movies in my backyard. We broke my parents’ camcorder at least three times. So the Afro-Squad stuff brings back happy memories for me. I also love that the speedometer says “holy crap”. Great stuff! Mad nunchuck skills, too.
What do you think of our band the Protagons and our video “Episode Zero”? Featured Here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFrGLbBMow4 You know, you are always welcome to use our characters SnowMan and KrazyMan in your future videos. I couldn’t get any of the music to work, but as I said, I loved the video. Great stuff.
What NMK projects would you like to talk about? Right now, we are gearing up to shoot the next video for our song “Michael (Jump In)”. So I’m really excited. It’s going to be a lot of fun. Lots of crazy stunts.
What does the future hold for NMK? We’ve got high hopes for the future. Flying cars. Talking robotic servants. Fluffier dogs. But specifically for No More Kings, we are currently working on our own ice-cream flavor. Due out next year. We’re getting ready to head back out on tour. The road. The long and winding road. And then hopefully start recording our second album. Can Afroman sing?
What would you like to say to your fans? I know everyone does this, but I really want to thank our fans for continuing to support us. Because of our MySpace plays, we are able to book better shows, and more of them. So in our case, the fans really do make all the difference. We love getting messages from our fans, and we always love meeting people at shows. We’ve got some exciting plans for our street team as well. So we encourage anyone who’s interested in joining to please go to www.nomorekings.com. You can shoot zombies there, too.
Is there anything else you would like to talk about? I think that’s all. Thank you so much for interviewing us. I look forward to the next Afro Squad episode! Maybe someday we can match our kung fu skills and join forces!
Roxxi Laveaux better know as Nikki Roxx on the Independent circuit made her debut on March 2001 after being trained by Killer Kowalski. Soon after, she formed a tag-team with April Hunter called The Killer Babes. It was April Hunter who originally convinced her to try-out at Killer Kowalski’s school, so a tag-team pairing was fitting. She quickly became one of the top female wrestlers on the independent circuit and also made strides in Mexico. The road led her to winning such title as the PGWA Championship, DPW Women’s Championship and many more.
On July 15th 2007 at TNA Wrestling’s Victory Road pay-per-view, she made her TNA debut as “The Voodoo Queen” Roxxi Laveaux aligning herself with the Voodoo Kin Mafia (Kip James & B.G. James). She immediately began a rivalry against Christy Hemme, and began participating in TNA’s Women’s Division.
We recently interviewed April Hunter. I know you’ve wrestled her. What do you think of April?
Well, April is the reason I am a professional wrestler. She was the one who talked me into giving it a try and since that day I have not stopped! I think April is a great wrestler and has a great look. I think any promoter would benefit having her apart of their roster.
What is your ultimate goal in wrestling?
My ultimate goal is to kick ass and enjoy every minute I am in the ring! Of course there is WWE or TNA but ultimately you only live once and why spend the time doing something you don’t love and enjoy.
What would you consider your favorite match?
I’ve had so many great opportunities it’s hard to pick just one match. You learn so much from each one. If I have to pick just one it would be my match against Susan Greene. She has been wrestling for close to 30 years. I learned so much just in that match!
Compared to other female wrestlers, how do you rate yourself?
I think we are all pretty equal. I don’t see anyone as better or less than me. All of us have different talents and when you can bring those talents together they make for a great match.
What do you think of other female wrestlers? Maybe you can tell us your thoughts on Chyna, Trish Stratus, and Tracy Brooks.
I think any girl that can get in the ring in front of a crowd and take the onslaught of the crowd’s comments is a hero. Not only that but just get in there and show everyone that girls are good wrestlers too. It’s an amazing thing.
As for Chyna, she was a pioneer for the girls. She wasn’t some Barbie doll or super model. She was a bodybuilder and she got in there and gave the guys a run for their money. She was my hero! Trish Stratus is great! You saw her first as the valet to T&A (Test and Albert). Then through the years you see her progress into the wrestler she is today. She’s done an amazing job and it motivates me. I see how she worked hard and it paid off.
I’ve actually had the honor to wrestle Tracy a couple times. I enjoy watching her matches and I’m so proud and happy to see how far wrestling has taken her. She totally deserves it!
What got you interested in wrestling?
I’ve always watched wrestling. It was a family thing to sit down and watch wrestling. Then as I got older my mom would bring me to Boston Garden to see the shows. But, I always just thought the wrestlers just showed up and wrestled. I had no idea there was actual training for this sort of thing.
So, one of my buddies asked for me to go to Killer Kowalski’s Wrestling Institution with him and I did. From there I met April Hunter and the rest is history.
Where do you see yourself in five years?
Kicking ass of course!
What’s your favorite TV show and what do you do for fun?
I love ESPN’s Cold Pizza and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends on Cartoon Network. I love cartoons! Thank you God for making Cartoon Network! .
For fun I love going to the gym, movies, reading comics (yes I love comics too!), and just having fun! Oh yea! And watching wrestling tapes and DVDs!
Do you have any workout tips for us?
Don’t call it dieting! It is limiting your food intake. And, give yourself one meal a week to have whatever you want. But, only one meal! It helps you stay dedicated to your limited food intake.
Is there anything you would like to say to your fans?
I’d like to thank each and every one of them. They are always so great to me! Thank you for your support!
Have you ever seen our site before? What do you think of NinjaPimp?
I think you guys are great! I’m honored to do the interview with NinjaPimp! I’m sure I will make all the other chick wrestlers jealous!
What’s something not many people know about you?
Normally, it’s the comic book thing. No one ever suspects I’m THAT much of a dork but I totally am! I love comics!
Well, thanks for the interview… it has been fun!
