I Know I Keep Saying it…..

BUT I am now getting up to date with WCPW and hoping to have a more regular WCPW review coming up on the blog. Its always gonna be late by some margin because of work but I really want to try and at least review WCPW along with live shows I go to.

I’m hoping to start a Lucha Underground watch through as well, seeing its seasons so could be fun like my re-watches of old anime, and maybe WWE PPVs as well for fun as I watch them all even if I don’t watch a lot of RAW or SmackDown.

WCPW though I really want to get sorted.

This also serves as a warning. Last one I did was Built to Destroy 2 so in between the Death Note and My Hero Academy catch ups you’ll be getting WCPW catch ups too.

Hopefully I’ll be able to keep it going after I’ve caught up again. For those who didn’t know our old wrestling reviewer who stopped due to bad health has now also passed away so I kinda want some wrestling to come back full time on here because he was one of the biggest driving forces to getting me to write instead of self harm and wrestling was always our go to thing when I was really down.

Photobucket problems…

So people might not have noticed that a lot of the photos we use on the blogs, especially the wrestling ones, have disappeared. This is due to Photobucket now charging if you want to host your photos on a 3rd party website.

To keep costs down we always used Photobucket to keep our storage low on WordPress, there are things like the headers to blogs that have to be stored so especially after we started with the anime reviews we decided to use Photobucket for about everything else.

We aren’t going to pay, or I personally am not going to pay, just to have the photos available to host on 3rd party sites.

SO at some point when I have time I will be deleting all the Photobucket pictures so that our site doesn’t look like such a mess. I will however be uploading all the wrestling photos onto our Facebook page, and will continue to load them on there, and link to the page in all the blogs. This includes past events too.

Anyone who follows me on Twitter knows I’ve always been fed up of Photobucket either just never working, being difficult in general and unreliable so it shouldn’t surprise anyone I’d rather take the much easier yet less fun option of just uploading to Facebook and linking to it then having to deal with the stress AND PAY FOR IT.

We are sorry that there are now pages of random messages telling you that photos are unavailable and so on. I have very limited time at the moment and when I am at home I tend to have little energy to face having to destroy all the work we’ve done in the last two years. I will find a better way to do everything and make it all pretty again down the line but at the moment I’m focusing on my real life job and just trying to get the content out rather then worry about the little tricky things that make the place look and feel nicer but in the end don’t really add a whole lot more.

Update…

So you might have noticed that we’ve gone super quiet recently and I have at least had a few people who know that I’m meant to have had a lot of wrestling reviews up in the last few weeks comment on where they are.

First thing I want to say is it is all my fault. Lucius, who is the only other member of the team who is available to do anything, has done everything he can. Unfortunately I do need to edit his blogs as he has a lot of problems writing so it is my job to edit themΒ before they go out. Everything he was meant to review has been reviewed and the blogs are just piling up on me for which I apologise to him and those who read his reviews.

The reason I’m so behind is that I had a bit of a health scare, my GP made me feel like I was about to be diagnosed with cancer and it played on my mind. Its hard to write when you feel like you are close to having some terrible news handed down to you, thankfully I found out last week its actually something else which I’m going to have to have surgery on. If it was JUST that I might have been OK with the editing at least.

BUT…

My mental health has been playing up ridiculously recently. I might have talked about it before but I have a obsessive personality where I become all consumed with something. AGAIN that might not have made much of a distraction for me if it had been with a TV show or something like that as it usually is, in fact it might have produced some random blogs out of it, but its something in my personal life with a real life person so its something that I find hard to take my mind off of. That has the knock on effect of messing around with my depression which means I’ll black out for hours on end after being motivated to work and doing a good hour or so of it and when I finally come to I’m so unmotivated its unbelievable.

Of course this then snowballs. At first it was just anime stuff I needed to catch up with THEN I went to a wrestling show then another and another and the WCPW blogs were just piling up too. I look at my drafts right now and I feel sick thinking about it all BUT I do have a lot of time on my hands this week and hoping to finish it all. Tonight I hope to get Lucius’s blogs at least edited so he can look at them, I have done two of the many wrestling blogs I just need to add photos to them and I will over the next 24 hours catch up with MY anime and start the ball rolling on those blogs.

Again I am sorry to Lucius who has taken time out of his life to write what he needed to write and I’m making him look like a asshole.

I’m sorry to anyone expecting my PWA or Pride reviews and being seriously disappointed that they haven’t shown up.

I really am sorry to James who I agreed I would do the WCPW reviews for and never did them.

I had gotten myself last month in a place where I had ideas for loads of things and was starting to piece weekly stuff together and all sorts and its just all crumbled into nothing as it always tends to do on here, I do hope that my mind will settle again, after all my crushes never last for long and my brain always reverts to reminding myself to focus on things I actually can do after a while.

Hopefully in the next few weeks the page will be busy every day once more.

Warning for the next few hours….

OK so I’m in the middle of finishing off 7 wrestling reviews today. The two Pride shows I went to this weekend, the two PWA shows I went to the week before and finally editing three WCPW ones I promised James.

The thing is my laptop keeps going weird so if a wrestling review is published today IGNORE IT I will not be publishing anything today so if something shows up without something at the beginning saying “I changed my mind and WILL publish this today” ignore it as it will be deleted because my laptop/internet/wordpress keeps going batshit crazy and it might accidentally post something I’m in the middle of editing/writing.

I mean my writing is pretty piss poor to begin with you do not want to see what its like before its been edited about 100 times.

Really apologise for anything half finished that might for some reason pop up today.

Anime Update

So most of you will notice our anime blogs have been sparce. They’ve all basically been catch ups of animes either long finished or which are still ongoing but we’re still a good deal behind on.

I am going to pick one or two of this seasons anime to binge watch and review, reviews coming out three days a week or something. So a lot of anime is going to be posted in a very short period of time.

As always we apologise but we feel we needed to do something for this season. I’ve just been extremely busy as have the others, I haven’t even really had time to THINK about the anime I’ve just been working and sleeping and trying to keep up to date with little things. We WILL be turning the anime posts off of Facebook as to not blow up people’s Facebook time lines with our reviews but will be keeping them going on the Twitter page and Tumblr.

So for anime fans it might be a yay, for others it might be a boo. Either way at least it looks like we’ve done some work!

Plus if there is anything from this season you think me or Lucius would like just leave us a comment and we’ll at least look at the first episode!

Thanks for sticking with us!

Update!

So our goal for 2016 was to try and be more productive and we’ve done that to a point. December has been by far the worst month but for good reasons. We started the year very positively with two months of a blog a day, we then at least had 5 blogs a week before our poor December showing.

As is always the case the majority of us have just found life has gotten in our way, usually Anna is the one that then picks up the pieces but she’s got a new job and has had to go through training and getting used to shift work as well as a change at home.

We are hoping that we’ll get a few blogs that have been in various states of completion done in the next few days. Anna and Luc are trying to get their anime end of year blogs done. We’re sad that we didn’t get more of them done this year but it has just been so busy. We also will have the XMas TV reviews up, Yonderland will be reviewed completely but the XMas review will probably be up before the end of the series is done.

So hopefully we’ll have a lot more coming up in the next few weeks, but a lot of it will be catching up with stuff.

Diary #8 : Where I am right now…

So first a update on the page.

Below I’ll explain the long and boring stuff (as it is a diary post and they are used for mental illness talk) but before that I’ll get down to it. We have EVERYTHING up to date. No really we do. Everyone has written every review they have needed too BUT its being held up, by me, in the drafts. As I have to double check spelling and tags and all that all the Yonderland, AHS, Ash vs Evil Dead and even just other misc posts have been piling up but with everyone working and me the way I am they’ve just been stuck in limbo.

THEREFORE I shall be doing my best to edit them over the weekend and get them out as best I can. I won’t have them all post to Facebook as most of the people who follow us on Facebook are there for wrestling reviews and nothing else (the Pride review will be out as I have actually written most of it, it’ll just be stupidly late as it is already.) I’ll try to spread them out over the next 7 or so days. I’ll try but be patient.

Why is it taking me so long?
