A few things from Parts ALLknowning…

Hello, everyone. Thinking positive that all is super in your lives. If not, look in the mirror. Both the problem and solution can be found there.

Several of you have asked about the Ultimate Warrior Figure Portrait I mentioned I was going to do. Here are some pics. (Small images are linked to larger ones in their own browser windows.) It’s coming along super. True to my Warrior style: Oil. Knife. Thick. Bold. Intense. I spare nothing when I paint. I use gobs and chunks of sticky, gooey oil paint. I use only a knife to put it on. I use force and energy and creativity when I apply it. I give all I have and leave all I have to give on the canvas.

I’ve got some other commission stuff going on right now and the Annual Santa Fe Indian Market is coming up in a week and half, so I’ve been busy in the studio. I wanted to get this UW Figure Portrait to a certain stage before I posted any pics. It’s already one-of-a-kind awesome and will really be killer once complete and refined.

As I previously told you, I ‘m doing this Ultimate Warrior work on a 24×36 canvas and then will decide whether to do a larger work, 42 x 72, something like that, something near life-size.

About this piece…I’ve come up with an idea. Since it is my first Ultimate Warrior Figure Portrait and there was much encouragement from you that I undertake one, and much interest since knowing I was, I’m going to set a pre-finished price to it, like how sculptors do precast sales where you can get in at 50% off the finished piece price. The first person to offer and pay $1900 ($75 s/h) gets it. After I complete it, the finished price will be $3800. Send me an email if you want it. First come, first serve. As you can already tell from the pics, it’s going to be really something else when it is done — and it is my very first UW work, so It will definitely be a collector’s piece. If you have concerns about the face not being done yet, let me tell you I always do the face last on all my figurative work and I’ve never failed to bring out the soul of the person. Surely, I won’t fail on the unique one I created.

By the way, I am available to do commissions on other works, either Ultimate Warrior images you want (close up or action shots) or personal portraits which I enjoy and have already completed several commissioned works.

Be back later with some other updates and comments…

New Store…

Hello, everyone. I’m working on some new things for ultimatewarrior.com. Many of you are always asking for signed pics and other autographed goods. Would you please let me know if this is link here is working? I’m just getting underway with design changes and links, etc., and would like to know. Thanks…

Store

If it does work and you want to purchase, all is ready to go through paypal. I’m working on some a “Quick Information on Shopping” page that will discuss shipping and other payment options. But in the meantime, paypal is set up and working. The Main STORE page has small images that are linked to bigger ones. At those pages with bigger images where there is an “Add to Cart” button. That button will take you to paypal. If you want to buy only one photo you can check out right then. If you want to choose others, click “continue shopping” and you go right back to the page of the photo you just viewed. Every larger image is opened in a window all by itself. All you have to do is close it and the Main STORE page will be in a separate browser.

What a day! Just super! Obama’s hell bent on wrecking the lives of us all. Reparations on the whole human race (ok, maybe just the white people) is in full Marxist mode.

You have to love it!!!

Really…I mean it.

The link should open an audio file. Please let me know if it works.

Looking in the mirror.

I’ve been told to look in the mirror before I judge others.

I have.

MJ now lives through UW.

What do you think? More off the nose?

MJlivesthroughUW.

Jacko. Finally, he beat it.

I imagine all the crying about the death of this recent drug-soused entertainment freak has most to do with the unfortunate inconvenience that the other drug-soused entertainment freaks now face. They will have to look for another local, safe and reputable babysitter. No longer will they be able to drop their kids off down the street at Jacko’s to be watched for the afternoon and spend some play time with his own kids.

I hate the paparazzi, and think they should all be shot for the obsessive invasion of privacy. But I’m really going miss ALL those TMZ and Entertainment Tonight video clips of Jacko’s and other celebrity kids playing together. You ever see any of those? Weren’t they great? Didn’t they make you feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside? Worked for me. Every time I caught one it made me believe maybe he wasn’t a pedophile. After all, famous and rich entertainers, with all kinds of money to go to any expense to have things accurately checked out for themselves, wouldn’t let their own little babies near a pedophile…would they?!

Well, you gotta give him credit for one thing. He spent all his money (and then some) before he died. And that’s not an easy thing to calculate. Go ahead, ask your financial planner if he has a plan to pull it off. For all the horrific mismanagement of millions and millions and millions of dollars, here at the end, Jacko did a pretty damn good job at balancing the books in his favor. Sorry, at my new age and with the way the Obama economic plan is going, I couldn’t help but recognize this stunner.

Sickens me.

People write and ask me all the time whether I still pay attention to any of the going-ons in politics anymore. I have kids growing up in the world, so, of course I do. The last time I said anything about politics was back at the end of 2006 just as the 2008 election campaigning was getting underway.

Anyway, yes, I am paying attention. After all, I am unfortunate enough (my kids, moreso) to be living in these historically significant times where America is transforming itself, under the watchful, vigilante eye of the Marxist Obama regime, into AmeriKa. (I use vigilante correctly, here. True Americans who do believe in original American principles ARE considered the criminals by Obama, and his anti-American administration IS violating every law it can to bring us Americans and this country to justice as they see it.)

More on that in time, I suppose.

Right now, though, what I wanted to briefly comment on is this Sanford debauchery. What a small-balled and small-minded man this guy is. Absolutely pathetic.

And here, so many conservatives were fooled into thinking otherwise, admiring the way this guy handled himself on public forums and conducted his governing affairs. He was held in high character and was building huge clout in conservative corners and here he goes and blows it all for a stupid piece of ass.

There are a lot of ways to f’up your life, but none better than infidelity to brutally f’up many more lives than just your own. Masculinity aside, a real man would not do it. Real men do not screw up their loved ones lives.

During the fallout of the financial crisis there was talk by some Republicans and even some conservative citizenry that self-inflicted seppuku would go a long way in restoring moral confidence. Naturally, once the word got out about it being said, there was plenty of clarifying CYA by representatives who only fantasize, while among the heroic, manly monuments in DC at the people’s expense, that they would have the courage to redeem themselves in this honourable manner if caught up in equal shameful behaviors; of course, none of them believe their daily crimes against our Constitution qualify as equal shameful behaviors. I was disappointed with clarification. And I know I’m about to be disappointed again. This time not only will the Republican representatives and CON-servative talking heads not mention any need to restore moral confidence, they won’t give us any inspiring punishment ideas we can dream about.

If they change their mind, I’ll supply the machete.

America needs another George…

Soon enough I’ll be posting a videocast discussing Conservatism (should always be spelled with a capital “C” out of respect) in the way I define the true, real and pure version of it. On this occasion let me just say this. Although all the republican candidates were running to be the next Ronald Reagan, become the embodiment of what they and the pseudo-conservative punditry called Reagan Conservatism, I think Ronald Reagan, himself, would be the first one to say, “Gentlemen, what this country needs right now is not another Ronald Reagan. What America needs is another George Washington.”

Conservatism, men and women, didn’t begin with Ronald Reagan. He didn’t create it. He didn’t found it. Even he admitted and told us this by speaking so frequently, eloquently and inspirationally about this country’s history and what from there we should be most concerned to preserve. Those who speak from their highly-rated and -paid pulpits telling us Reagan did create it and only he represents what Conservatism is are only revealing their complete ignorance. Of course, most of today’s populus is ignorant right along with them.

Recapturing Conservatism back to the Founding of this country would be one thing and it would be great if we could only just do that. But Conservatism, as a philosophy, is something you are born with, and the enlightenment and evolution of it are one and the same as Western Civilization. Reagan was a cowboy who admired America’s homegrown western traditions. But Homer is where you must start to be grounded in Western Civilization. There are the 80′s of the Nineteen Hundreds and there are the 80′s of the BC years long before the, now past, few thousand years since then. Way, way, way back there is will where you find the original and purest ideals that define Conservatism. Beginning with this one simple idea: the human being is capable of thinking and providing for himself. The entire, true essence of the Founding of this country rests on that one simple idea.

If you think Conservatism began in the period of history only 20-30 years ago, you are nothing more than a classic moron who’s doing nothing to conserve anything except silly stuff and your own superficial ass. If you know Conservatism has been there since the beginning of man’s time, you’re a real Conservative in the true, classical philosophical sense; and you understand the innate responsibility every human being is born to “Conserve” what is important for all mankind and the prospect of continued civilized times.

Happy Birthday, George Washington.

Injection site preparation…

Hello everyone. When you go to the doctor and they give you an injection they always prep the injection site with an alcohol swab. Apropos, I am posting the article below, which I wrote back at the beginning of the baseball season for a publication called Boston Baseball, as a way of preparing you for the injection of video commentary I will posting very soon. Both the article and videocast are about steroids. The article was written at the beginning of last season and it addresses what was happening in baseball at the time. The actual article the publishers ran in the magazine was sprayed down with the perfume of political correctness. I agreed to the changes of my original because I really did appreciate the opportunity to put my viewpoint forth and there was a deadline at the time that left me no time to negotiate for leaving my bolder and blunter points in. This article, here, is my original. plus few edits and add-ons just now completed before posting.

The forthcoming videocast was recorded a couple of weeks after my Hannity and Colmes appearance and it deals with the steroid controversies surrounding the Benoit incident.

Try to relax….you’re only going to feel a slight pinch.

*** I am able to moderate comments again. As I laid out in this videocast, there are some house rules around here. One, children and adults who either think or behave like children don’t have freedom of speech in MY house. Two, I’m a stickler for good spelling. And I think there’s nothing more pathetic than those acting like tough guys who can’t even spell their cuss words correctly. Neither these kinds of comments or mistakes will be allowed or tolerated.

Gauging by the contributions made thus far, I might not be qualified to comment on this steroid and performance enhancement issue. I am a former sports superstar. However, I’m not, now, broken down physically and broke financially, attributing all my career success and present-day ills to the use of performance enhancement supplementation. Neither do I have a bitter ax to grind, a superficial, stupid and vulgar tell-all book to hock, or a need to beg others to feel sorry for me.

To lessen my chances even more of being taken seriously and credibly, I’m not an envious sports journalist or zealot, stat-keeping fan who, to begin with, never had the skills, talent, work ethic, guts, stamina, or self discipline to be a competitive champion athlete. Nor did I get my knowledge about steroids solely from a PDR, where what is found can be used to speciously pervert “use” as being the same as “abuse.”

Ten years removed from my successful sports entertainment career, I’m still healthy, strong, flexible, fast and lead a physically intense, energetic, and positive lifestyle. I’ve no criminal rap sheet, drug rehabilitation record, or idleheaded, profane reality show. I’m a happily married husband and a very proud, delighted father.

I did exercise the aforementioned virtues to become one of the best competitive champion athletes in my chosen sports field, and I have used these virtues time and time again to continue being productive and successful in my life.

I did use steroids. I know about their long and short term effects from personal experience, not rumor or generic medical studies done on mice, or the rare “roid rage” incident overdramatized by ignorant-minded media. When asked, I’ve never lied about it. And I can honestly say they had the least to do with my success while I was in my sports career.

So you can see, by the standard that has been set to be an expert on this issue today, I’m an absolute failure. Nonetheless, I will give it my Warrior best.

Good or bad role modeling? Fair or unfair? Legitimate or illegitimate? Manly or unmanly? Cheating or not? Disrespect and irreverence for the tradition and character of baseball or not? There’s a lot to consider.

I want to concentrate on the role-modeling aspect of it, right now. I think it — and its power of influence — is what matters most here, and is what most interests me. In fact, at great professional and financial sacrifice, I turned from participating in Sports Entertainment many years ago because of its unhealthy, degenerate, and lewd creative environment and built a career writing and speaking to youth on responsible, heroic, and principled behavior, especially young males about their life potential and masculine identities.

About the fair or unfair aspect, cheating or not, my short opinion on it is this.

It is interesting to me that there are very few fellow champion athletes, those still in the game competing today, who are complaining about how unfair it is. Neither do you hear the team owners and managers, in unison or large numbers, complaining about it being unfair. Frankly, the voluminous, infantile opining thus far by non-competitive athletes exists for one reason and one reason only: solely because too many irrational and subjective idiocies and ambiguities are being tolerated instead of immediately junked. And, to think, they claim athletes are the muscleheads.

When you crunch the numbers, though, the proportions all make sense. The massive number of envious know-it-alls who truly know nothing far outnumbers the low number of great athletes who have and know what it takes to excel. Why? Leaders are rare and followers come in legions. My guess is, this is also why you don’t hear much that is negative or denouncing from fellow champion players, team owners and managers.

They are all leaders in some sense and they are all willing to push the rules as far they can to do whatever it takes to win. Talent and managers want to perform alongside and manage like-minds. These athletes already accept the fact that the World isn’t fair to begin with (most people using common sense accept it too)– and even without performance enhancers, things still aren’t going to be fair. They get it: the playing field will never be level. There are natural skills and talents. And there are those who will make the extra effort and sacrifice to improve even those. And, then, there are those who won’t. Next thing you know self-discipline itself — the most powerful performance enhancer there is — will be on the “Banned Substance” list.

To put it in simple, naked terms, pro athletes who’s work day involves walking around locker rooms butt-naked get this really well; guys who haven’t been in a locker room since high school, when they had to turn their backs on their classmates to summons up the confidence to put their gym shorts on, don’t. Like it or not, all males aren’t built the same way in their physical nature or mental capacity. No man is wholly equal to play games, either the one of life or the ones on an athletic field.

Certainly, if there are rules, they need to be abided by. I’m not advising otherwise. But get rid of the ambiguity.

There are those charged with making and enforcing the rules of the game and those charged with playing by them at performance levels which will be judged for quality. Responsibilities come with each role. Organizations don’t “literally” fulfill them — people who work for and run the organizations do. Success in fulfilling these organizational responsibilities is dependent on leaders with enough self-discipline to enforce their authority. If the rule makers truly desire absolute removal, then do it. Perform mandatory, unannounced and unexpected testing year round on all the players, and at “first strike,” impose a lifetime ban. Don’t talk about it — do it. Make it an either-or proposition and enforce the consequence, immediately. The possibility of rapidly delivered suffering is effective. Most of today’s athletes aren’t your average numbskulls. Sacrifice a couple of those who are and the rest will get with the plan real quick. It’s not that simple? Yes it is.

I think the case can be made that, rather than having failed at abiding by the rules, most of the athletes caught up in the performance enhancement trap have actually succeeded very well at abiding by the rules.

Something too many envious non-athletes and “weekend warriors” forget here: these guys are not you. They’re better than you. Yes. Yes, they are. They are better than you at doing what they do. You can buy the replica jerseys, but you couldn’t fill their shoes. That’s why your ass is spread out on the couch. A loud mouthed, zealous fan in an “armchair” isn’t a “quarterback.” He’s a daydreaming doofus, that’s all…probably an inebriated one getting his bravado and ballsiness from liquor and the all-beef weenies his fat gut is filled with. The event you watch them perform in is called a game, but to them it is anything but. It is their life and their livelihood. These athletes are totally different animals and have conditioned themselves to operate on a whole other level than other human beings. Here you demand performance of them, at its highest, most extreme levels, and when they cross a “performance” line that you — the passive non-athlete, non-champion — don’t approve of, you demean and discredit their talent, hard work and sacrifice altogether. This kind of girly-men giggling, behind the broad shoulders and wide, proud backs of the real men you non-athletic guys couldn’t compete with if you took enough performance enhancement to kill a rhino, has been going for years. Face it, even the “intensity” of squealing you non-competitive males are doing about all this, especially you never-fit, wide-ass sportswriters, would not be possible if it wasn’t for the fact that you all still wear your junior high school jockstraps to your slobbish jobs everyday.

It’s the height of hypocrisy to use Bond’s intelligence, on the one hand, to claim he’s too smart to not have know what he was doing and is nothing but a liar when he tells you he thought he was taking flaxseed oil (no way he can be that much of an idiot!), and, yet, on the other hand, not give credit to it to point out that he was indeed smart enough to know that he knew he was not actually breaking any rules by doing what he was doing. Yes, what he did he did covertly and that was definitely cunning and walking a fine legal line. But, still, he did not break the rules. He was simply doing what any high-caliber athlete has the “natural” potential to do when striving to be the best at what they do. There is no violation of any rule simply because an athlete pushes the rules as far as the rules will let him go.

We should quit beating up on the intelligent pro athletes who have shown they do have the self-discipline and drive to play by the rules, and start taking to task the organization’s weak, timid leaders who show they have no self-discipline to create and enforce rules they claim they want to have. There’s a lot of talk about shrinking organs…perhaps too many critics are trying to peek for evidence of it on the wrong guys.

Although I used steroids, and did so without abuse or suffering ill effects, I’m not an advocate for the use of steroids, certainly not by young athletes, in any way, shape, or form.

However, when it comes to professional high-caliber athletes there’s more to consider, especially here, when there is all this apparent concern so many pseudo-pundits have for the quality of role-modeling going on. The envy, fear and ignorance being put forth — it accompanied aplenty by huge doses of hypocrisy — is ultimately going to destroy much more than the individual targets which they are aimed.

The best way I can explain this is by telling you a personal story.

It was 1977. I was a freshman at Indiana State University. A few years earlier, I’d stumbled into my high school weight room and befriended an old, rusty Universal weight machine, sitting there in his draftless, windowless 10×10 room. Although still very skinny here in my first year of college, I was rapidly gaining weight and strength, especially since I no longer had to compete with my four brothers and sisters for the best performance enhancement supplement I knew of at the time, milk; my dormitory’s meal card put an end to rationing.

I was hooked on weighttraining and knew I would be for a long time. “Muscle Builder,” as Joe Weider’s “Muscle and Fitness” was called back then, was my pocket book. Rolled up, ragged, and ripped pages, I never left my dorm room without it. I always had it on hand to read whenever I took a break from studying, which to working out frequently took a back seat. Schwarzenegger, Columbo, Scott, Ferrigno, Robinson, Draper, Zane, Gable, Olivia – these were the guys I looked up to and who inspired me.

The first time I read about steroids was in Muscle Builder. Nothing at length, and no one admitting anything, just a couple blurbs. I became curious. Not to find any to take, but to find out more about them.

The first time I heard about steroids was in the underground weightroom and track and field facility on campus, affectionately called, ‘The Jungle,” by all of us that worked out there. One day one guy mentioned another guy who he believed used steroids. I knew this guy who he was talking about, so I thought to myself, now I know who I can ask to find out more about these things called steroids. That is, if I, first, could muster up the courage.

HE was a World-Class shot-putter, and the buzz was that he was on the verge of breaking the World Record. He was a self-disciplined creature of precise habit. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 3 pm, through the unseen, upstairs door you knew he had entered the building. Even before you saw him duck his head and turn his body sideways to squeeze his massive frame through the small downstairs entrance you could feel his presence in the building.

He was huge. A human mastodon. Six-foot, seven-inches. 350 pounds. Not fat. Solid like a Boulder. Yet graceful like a panther. He gazed above all the rest of us and, seemingly, beyond the walls confining us all together. Bald, a chest like an industrial keg, legs like trees, a neck replaced by traps like mountains, little beady, close-set eyes, and tiny-rimmed, oval glasses. You could tell he had something going on his head other than mumbling. A 350 pound, muscled-up Harry Potter. All his potential for caricature made him even more intimidating.

He always used the same bench. Mysteriously, whenever he came to the gym, no one else was ever on it. It was his throne and even newcomers knew it. He always did the same bench presses: 135, 225, 315, 405, 465, 495, and a couple of sets of a couple of reps with over 500. Like clockwork. No drama. Just power. One calculated grunt before the explosion of each rep. Done, he’d exit in the same bull-elephant manner he thundered in.

I had my chance. I only had two to three seconds to find my courage. I followed him, walking in the enormous dark shadow his body cast behind, and got his attention, “Sir, could you tell me anything about ster—.” That was as far as I got. He cut my sentence off and my breath short. He looked right into my eyes and he wasted no words. I’ll never forget the force of his breath or what he said. It seems like just yesterday.

‘Steroids don’t build champions, young man. Champions are built from hard physical work, mental discipline and personal sacrifice. All of these in huge amounts. Before I ever took one steroid, I was one of the 10 best shot putters in the world…on this planet. At that time I had a choice before me. I knew to have that shot at being the World’s BEST, there were new rules to play by. I may not have liked it, but those were the facts. As a reasonable adult man, responsible for my life and its future, and with a limited amount of time to exploit the athletic potential I have, I made a mature adult decision. I want to be THE best in the World. Young man, if you don’t have what it takes to be ONE of the best playing by the old rules, deciding to play by the new rules won’t ever make you THE BEST — THE champion above all others. You understand?’

‘Yes, sir,’ I somehow got out. He, then, turned and squeezed himself through the tiny door.

Of course, I didn’t get at all what he was saying at that very moment. But I wasn’t about to ask him to tell me again. I wouldn’t have been able to hold my breath any longer, which it seemed I did forever. After a few days, though, of thinking about what he said, I did get it. And from that second forward I never even thought about steroids till years later and a natural, muscular weight gain of over 110 pounds.

I worked out and worked out and worked out and worked out till the calluses on my hands would bleed. I did my first three bodybuilding contests without steroids. I weighed over 275 pounds of hard, solid muscle — 225-235 competition weight — before I ever considered doing them.

When I finally did, I traveled to Southern CA, talked and compared my myself with those same pros I admired and other top amateurs I’d read about through the industry’s publications. I met with Joe Weider and left inspired that I had all it would take to go to the top. And I got adequate knowledge to know that if I wanted to be one of the best competitive bodybuilders in the World, taking steroids was a fact of the matter I would have to deal with.

I never abused them and I never took them just so I could be the gym monster, the guy trying too hard to look the best in his tank top when he doesn’t truly have what it takes. I had a purpose and was willing to accept the risks, and the consequences of taking those risks. At about the same time, an opportunity came up to get in wrestling. The rest there, as they say, is history. During that career, I used performance enhancement to recuperate. Often, I would be on the road for 30-40 days at a time, averaging 3 hours sleep a night. When I did get a day off it was usually only one or two and a good part of the time was spent traveling back home only to pack back up again.

I left Indiana State after one year and went to school in Florida to continue my education. I saw that World Class shot-putter a few more times, but never spoke to him again, even though he would wink at me from across the weightroom, sorta teasing me about how hard I was working out and how much progress he seemed to notice I was making.

I don’t know if he ever broke the World record. What I do know, unbeknownst to him, he delivered the single greatest piece of mentoring I, as a fatherless kid, had ever been given in my whole 18 years of life. Still today, I’ve never forgotten the impact his simple, yet forceful, spoken words had on me.

When I do my speaking engagements or converse with parents and other adults I talk about how I think that, if we will always have the strength to practice what we preach and give young people the honest, proper direction, they will have what they need to make the right, disciplined, and responsible decisions for themselves at each of their own many crossroads in life. Most of us adults, especially grown men, are not doing that today. And, sadly, many of these un-grownup men are the only ones that get the column space and TV time to talk about this steroid and performance issue baseball is dealing with right now.

Bonds and the others have failed us at role-modeling. But not because they took steroids. They failed us because they didn’t have the courage to tell us the truth, or the confidence and competence to explain their actions, which by today’s cultural standards and demands are arguably natural and reasonable.

The truth can’t matter on one hand and not on the other, like so many are trying to attempt. There’s a lot of of talk about the absence of traditions and manly characters of the past. But too many people conveniently forget that there once was a time when men would not allow themselves to get away with the pervasive behavioral contradictions accepted today. In those missed cherished times, if the truth didn’t matter on both hands, real men wouldn’t allow it to matter on one alone.

We live in a culture today where failure and vice are praised and success and virtue are ridiculed. In the last 50 years of experimentation trying to equalize outcome and worth across the board, political correctness has now made it so that it is unpopular for any male to be the best at what they do on their own innate, masculine terms. Our young males are being emasculated and they are having their birthright to fully develop their own self-discipline and self-responsibility robbed from them. We want manly, heroic role-modeling, but we have neither the cultural or individual character to handle the masculinity of it.

There is nothing that drives an athlete more, or more empowers the inspiration of others, than an all-consuming desire to be the best, at whatever cost. Unfortunately, we may not have the guts or hormones for it anymore.

There’s a joke passed around, typically expressed seriously by jealous males, that steroids, not Wheaties, are the breakfast of today’s champions. Frankly, I think the joke sorta loses its cynical impact when you consider most non-athletes abuse all other kinds of body and mind altering drugs without suffering any scrutiny or ridicule whatsoever. Nonetheless, if this were true, my suggestion would be that we find a way to insure fewer males go without breakfast. Because it’s all too obvious that too many males today are missing the most important meal of the day. The World sure could use a few more guys with the self-disciplined character it takes to be real champions.

Withdrawals…

I’m having withdrawals. It’s been a full three days since I last offended anyone. Hatemail to me is like the best performance enhancement doctors can no longer legally prescribe. I was thinking of how to keep my veiny, skin-tightening pump going and get my fix…and as if by destiny (we believe in that kind of thing around here) an article to help me keep it and get it magically presented itself.

Are you fat? Are you, like that grotesque blob in my last post (“love is blind and blubbery…”) wanting true love but haven’t seen your sex parts since you were an infant?

Well, I’ve some bad news and some good news.

The chairman of the International Obesity Taskforce wants world leaders to agree a global pact to ensure that everyone is fed healthy food. (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/7250608.stm)

That’s right, fatboy, the government has its sights set on taking away another freedom- your freedom to feed your face ass self whatever you may like. Frankly, although I’m a guy big on having the government get the hell out of our lives, I happen to be quite alright about fat people losing this freedom of theirs. If you can’t keep yourself out of the Dunkin Donuts and other lard-laden junk food joints, then you should have to wear a tracking harness (the ankle bracelets skinny, unfed prisoners use won’t fit) and when you make a move to keep acting the pig you are, law enforcement steps in and muzzles you.

Freedom comes with responsibility and anyone who lets their mouth expand their weight to this kind of blasphemous, ungodly heft obviously doesn’t get how the two work with one another. So in the interest of the self-disciplined humans of the human race, your freedom to further abuse your responsibility must be taken away. After all, you are endangering the rest of us. You are potentially killing off mankind. How’s that? Well, as this article somewhat tries to point out, putting forward the idea that obesity must be fought in the same ludicrous manner idiots are suggesting we combat climate change. What they really mean is that the flatulence of fat people contributes more to global warming than either cows or industrial capitalists (i.e., those who will subsidize the universal health care plan we will inevitably have because of those who don’t take responsibility for their own health to begin with).

Of course not, dimwit. The writers of the article don’t say exactly that. They can’t. What, has the congealed bacon grease of your arteriosclerosis also started to coat the neurons of your fat-suffocated brain? Who doesn’t know, media people can’t just call a fat ass a fat ass, anymore; if they do they will likely get sued for discrimination. That’s why you have me. To fillet the prime pieces from the ambiguity. Jesus, they just don’t pay me enough for this job I do. And the lack of appreciation… forget about it.

Another fat person expert, Professor Rena Wing (fat ass herself, you betcha) says, “The obesity epidemic won’t go away simply because people switch to skimmed milk from whole milk.”

No, it won’t. But I have the solution. Instead of stomach staples, use mouth staples.

You ask. I deliver.

Every single minute of everyday someone writes and wants to know if I still have “it.” I’m tired of being asked, so here’s the proof.  (Thanks, Troy, for making the Warriorman look so good and keeping the Ultimate Warrior spirit alive!)

Love is blind and blubbery, truly….

These kinds of love stories melt my heart and make me hungry for the highest fat Valentine’s Day chocolate ever created.

XOXOXOX

drug addict dies. the living lie.

“‘In a statement released through Ledger’s publicist, the actor’s father, Kim, said Wednesday: ‘While no medications were taken in excess, we learned today the combination of doctor-prescribed drugs proved lethal for our boy. Heath’s accidental death serves as a caution to the hidden dangers of combining prescription medication, even at low dosage.’”

No excess? Are you f’ing kidding me!! What, was he preparing for the next “Elephant Man” movie or what? He certainly took enough drugs to kill one.

No one is asking this father to reject the love he had for his son and will forever hold. Confess your love, but don’t insult the intelligence of other human beings who CHOOSE not to SELF-DESTRUCT and end their lives prematurely.

Leather Hedger was a drug addict, pure and simple. His father is a liar, pure and simple.

DEAD LONG BEFORE 28.

In the interest of full disclosure, I must tell you I have watched Brokeback Mountain no less than 45 times and I own the Limited Edition DVD, signed by Willie Nelson a short time after he wrote that queer cowboy song as a tribute to the courage of the producers and actors who broke such incredible creative ground when they made their agenda-less movie. Serious. Until I saw Bendover Brokeback, Braveheart was my favorite movie. But the love scenes of Brokeback sucked me right in and I had no choice but to give myself over to the passion of its wide open range, if you get my drift. Such courage this young man and his colleagues have. Reminds me of the courage of classic movie stars, where during the War they enlisted and flew bomber planes and fought on frontlines, then came back and picked up their lives and careers right where they left off, without anti-American sentiment, whining and complaining, or self-destructive self indulgence. I’m equally inspired.

Apparently, Leather Hedger had sleeping troubles and anxiety and dealt with terrible mood swings. So do soldiers but they don’t self-destructively fuck up their lives. In fact, they don’t sleep, handle anxiety and mood swings while dealing with whether or not they might at any moment lose their life. And they do this all the while they are dangerously protecting the freedom of others to fuck up their own. By the way, how many 28 (or older or younger) year old soldiers met their death yesterday? It’s not easy to find out. None of them made the headlines of any news.

By today’s standard, though, I do have to agree that he was a great father. Perhaps even greater then the father of the year, Hulk Hogan. After all, Leather Hedger did what it took to kill himself. His kid is without a father, yes, but the negative influence is now removed and his own child has the chance for a full recovery. Hogan, on the other hand, won’t go quite that far. He insists on sticking around to keep further ruining, and profiting off of, the parentally mismanaged lives of his own children.

It is sad and tragic….that we don’t demand attention be paid to greater things.

UK WRESTLESLAM Appearance…

Many have inquired to know whether this is legitimate, or not. Yes, it is. They inquire because, ironically, there have been more Ultimate Warrior frauds and wanna-be copycats than any other wrestler since the times of Milos of Kroton. I don’t know why, really. As you know, I’m not too brave or bold when it comes to having opinions. And the last thing I would ever want to do is be controversial, or worse, confrontational. Oh, how I hate that. Just the thought of it turns me into a big old scaredy-cat. You just don’t know. My oh my, how my 3-4 hours of sleep each night would be absolutely wrecked if I knew someone was upset by anything I had to say.

However, if I had to guess, I would say the desire for anyone to embody Ultimate Warrior (or me while they are not in gimmick) probably has most to do with my sports entertainment career’s illegitimacy and that the persona was nothing more than a flash-in-the-pan. After all, unsuccessful, boring and uninspiring people and personalities have historical reputations for sustaining an unique and magical, worldwide, public interest years and years after they are no longer around. Yeah, that must be it. That is exactly what drives so many to want to be it and keep yakking about it all these years later. Ultimate Warrior was never anything and is still nothing now. Beating a dead horse? Perhaps. But it seems more reasonable that critics would simply admit IT was a Thoroughbred they simply can’t kill.

You have to have heard and seen it by now. There’s an absolutely sick-looking and sickminded Ultimate Warrior Wannabe (UWW) puppy in New Jersey. He even signs pictures of my painted face and glorious physique, not his own. In fact, his wife (“Warrior Princess” as she calls herself when arguing with fans who let her know, “Your husband ain’t the real Ultimate Warrior”) sleeps with my picture. That’s right, “a” picture, just one. Apparently, she told a friend that sleeping with more than one would be just too much for any woman to handle.

He claims he’s channeling me, the one-and-only and original Ultimate Warrior. But, hell, that can’t be right. I mean, come on, I’ve had a Self Destruction DVD produced on me by those (liars) claiming they knew me very well. And not even in that fallacious production by these former family and friends was the portrayal of self destruction on the outerspace (or is that myspace?) level this guy has taken it to. And these frauds who created the DVD are pros at making crazy bullshit up! Nope, just ask all my former colleagues in the business. They’ll tell you. This guy from NJ can’t be channeling me. He’s way over-the-top with his brand of self-destruction. He’s over-selling it. Although, if you ask me, if Vince really wanted the project done right, he should have hired this guy to produce it, instead of buying off all the lying hanger-ons and burnt-outs he used. At least this NJUWW has true self destruction down.

An officially served Cease and Desist has been ignored. Let’s see though, Dominic, if you can find a way to ignore the stiff judicial yank you’re about to feel around your neck here as the rope you’ve been running out comes to its end. By all means, wear my gimmick to Court so we can all have one final laugh…at your expense.

Someone wrote after seeing some video of this guy: “This isn’t going to end well.”

No, for one person it isn’t. For another, all always ends well.

Anyway, the One-and-Only will see you at Wrestleslam February 9, 2008.

ANNOUNCEMENT

Yes, it’s true. On April 19th, 2008, I will be In Madrid, Spain. New Wrestling Evolution (NWE) has invited me to appear as a Special Guest and receive an award to recognize my career in the Sports Entertainment industry.

A couple of years ago, NWE representatives contacted me to discuss the dreams and visions they held for their new, upstart wrestling organization at the time. Graciously, even then they expressed their desire to one day bring me over just so the many Ultimate Warrior fans over there could have the once-in-a lifetime opportunity to meet in person one of the industry’s most admired heroes.

I was humbled when they mentioned this was a dream they had. I am even more humbled now that they have returned and actually asked, and I am inspired that they are fulfilling their dream to build a Sports Entertainment enterprise that is serious and determined — and unique. That the event is already sold out and they are not using my appearance to sell tickets speaks volumes to the success they are creating.

I like the ideas they have in mind, especially the one they have to build a Sports Entertainment product more oriented for family, more positive for children.

This is a wonderful opportunity and I am excited, happy, and honored to accept the invitation.

First, the slaughtering of a few inveterate rumors.

1) There was only one Ultimate Warrior. That is, in Sports Entertainment there was only one person who ‘did’ Ultimate Warrior — that was me. There were not different guys or a twin brother or look-a-like cousins who also “did” him. I created him; I was the only one who ever legally and legitimately performed him; and I own the USPTO legally registered trademark rights of Ultimate Warrior as an Intellectual Property.

2) I am not dead. Nor have I ever died. Don’t laugh. There are plenty of kooks (too many) who write and inform me that I am or that I have — and then demand I write back and confirm it!

3) I lead an active, constructive and fulfilling life. Despite inaccurate rumors, vindictive mischaracterizations, and flagrant defamation claiming otherwise, the reality is I have built an incredibly empowered life on my OWN terms. As a devoted husband and father, I could not have custom-ordered a more loving, healthy, spirit-filled, and happy home life. And as a man who has throughout his whole life been inspired by the setting of new goals and their different challenges, and the ability to think for oneself which accompanies these, my day-to-day life environment is creative, productive, and positive.

To find those who truly have self-destructed, keep your eye on the obituaries and visit the gravesides of other WWF/E talent who’ve died of various forms of self-indulgence, beginning with their refusal to mature as real men and grow up and act their age. When you are done there, go look into the hollow-souled eyes of those Sports Entertainment figures you once thought defiant, strong, proud, and independent who’ve crawled back into the cave to have their minds, lives and characters controlled because they were afraid of being real men, afraid of the real world and real challenges, and felt safer, as Plato showed us, viewing the shadows from the inside.

If you’ve believed any of these rumors you were duped. Plain and simple. If you want to continue to believe them — as some, for whatever sick reason, do — then I can assure you the objective, sane, clearheaded thinking going on here will be of little interest to you.

Warrior Web found its way into digital existence late 1996-early 1997 (just after my last appearance in the WWF). I took a simple software program that was available back then and I threw it together. My goal was to simply have a web presence. Nothing fancy. Just something easy that would recognize Ultimate Warrior’s existence and that I could use as a forum to discuss all that lie ahead for me in a future outside the ring I positively looked forward to getting on with.

Although since its inception both the site and I have gone through some changes, Warrior Web in its simplest, yet significant, terms still remains a journal about my life and my interests, and the beliefs that make up the philosophy of life by which I live and its natural, healthy evolution.

If you have come here expecting to find endless archives of Ultimate Warrior wrestling analysis, biography and fanship, you’ve come to the wrong place. I am a man who believes setting different challenging goals and learning new things is something you do throughout your life. No matter the degree of previous success. When it was my goal to succeed in sports entertainment, I devoted everything I had to give — time, energy, thinking: every breath of my life. Now that it is no longer my goal, I don’t.

It’s not that I do not appreciate all those who were fans. I most certainly do. I’ve never forgotten (or will ever forget) how instrumental fans were to Ultimate Warrior’s success. Anybody who communicates with me through the site, met me out in public casually or professionally on one of my speaking engagements, knows this very well. But my life has moved on to other really productive, positive, and spectacular goals, and my time today is very much spent on those, learning from them, enjoying and succeeding at them; all of them at this moment, outside a wrestling ring.

Each day new visitors to Warrior Web write comments to me similar to this: “I started to read what you had to say; at first I was under the mistaken impression that you were quite possibly still running around doing your character from the ring. But, after reading further reading, I found that you had deep insights, you had used your experiences to shape and strengthen you.”

Well, for starters, if you came here expecting that the guy who created the Ultimate Warrior gimmick would not be intense, I guess you’re going to be in for a surprise. After all, the intensity and physical explosiveness Ultimate Warrior displayed is the most fixed impression you and the Sports Entertainment industry will never, ever forget. (Witnessing how so many others have so pathetically tried, many even under the duress of management instruction, to replicate it sadly informs all of us of the hard-nosed reality of this.) Yes, wrestling is choreographed, but there are just some personality aspects of the business and its talent that can’t be faked. Ultimate Warrior ran because I was running him. He was intense because I already was. So mind your manners and be thankful that I’m an old-fashioned kind of guy who believes there are some traditions better left unchanged. My natural personal intensity is one. It never will. Whatever I am doing – wrestling, writing, working out, speaking, even weaving pot holders — I am going to do it with action and intensity.

It also seems very natural to me that I have allowed my experiences to shape and strengthen me. And I am always a little surprised others are surprised that I have. I just don’t think it is a thing to be surprised by — or give praise to. I think it is better that we save ourselves to be surprised, and ashamed, of others who don’t. It’s also just as natural that my philosophy of life — fostered by my life experiences — was forged, and has subsequently evolved throughout the years, by experiences that are entirely unique to my life. I am who am I today, and in the past been who’ve I’ve been, in direct accordance to the sum total effect of the experiences I have had at any distinct moment along the timeline of my life. I wasn’t the same whole person after I had the experience of my wrestling career as I was before; and the same holds true, now, 20 years after my beginnings in that industry and 10 years removed from it altogether.

Misbelieve what you want, but “Ultimate Warrior” as a “persona” didn’t just drop from the sky and create itself out of thin air. I created and performed and evolved him, creatively, out of who I was and what I believed at the time.”Persona’ is, after all, even uncannily more so considering my Ultimate Warrior gimmick and his performance apparel, Latin for “the psyche behind the mask, the soul behind the exterior of one’s character as one presents it to the world, masking one’s inner thoughts, feelings.”

Ultimate Warrior was simply and purely an exterior amplification of my own character, creativity, and charisma — my OWN ideas and my OWN beliefs; all of them attributes which a character like The Ultimate Warrior would have to be made of. There was no one to hold my hand or nobody who handed me the gimmick and instructed me about how to portray and evolve him. Yes,”no one” and “nobody” includes Vince McMahon and his sycophants.

For twenty-five years before I ever crossed paths with the unusual proposition of getting in the pro-wrestling business, my “character” was inevitably shaped and strengthened by my other life experiences that had already well-forged the philosophy of life I entered the business holding.

Ultimate Warrior’s philosophical core paralleled my own — and that is what, I believe, contributed in largest part to his success.

Ultimate Warrior was a “persona” who embodied energy, strong work-ethic, unconquerable determination, self-discipline, self-responsibility, self-accountability, and self-belief. He was inspired by great acts and ideas, and believed in time-honored virtues like integrity, honor, loyalty, and heritage. He was interested in actualizing the potential of his life, being the best as much as he was created to be, and believed in earning what he got by his own merits.
He creatively engaged inspiration and guidance from the warriors of the past. He believed in the worthiness and honor in seeking challenge and making sacrifice. He believed in an immortal spiritual existence, a continued karmic interaction and connectedness with the souls and spirits of warriors who had already lived and warriors yet to live; time past working energetically with present time and time yet to come.


He also believed in that basic, classic battle cause, the singular reason to stand up and step in and fight for what you believe, even if you had to give your life for it: Good vs Evil. There was one or the other, just like there was either right or wrong, true or false, and he had no tolerance for any forms in-between.

Ultimate Warrior believed that life meant more than just a purposeless passing of time, an insignificant trek from its birth to its death. He believed in destiny, not coincidence, and ideals that were greater and longer living than just the time period of his one life. No one gave ME these creative expressions — they came from inside.

Like it or not, believe it or not, accept the reality of it or not, nothing is more clear: One cannot do what one is not capable of. Ex nihilo nihil fit (Nothing is created from nothing).

So it was, too, that the disciplines, traits, virtues, and beliefs that made me capable of creating and performing Ultimate Warrior would, in time, also be the same disciplines, traits, virtues, and beliefs giving me the strength and confidence to reject certain personal behaviors and business practices of people and go on beyond Sports Entertainment and achieve other goals. Looking back now, 20 years removed from the beginning, it’s clear to see that it was inevitable that sports entertainment would be only a chapter in my life, not a whole book.

It’s so eerily ironic. When all I’d been given was the opportunity to prove what I had to offer, I was praised and awarded great success for exploiting my unique disciplines and beliefs through the performances of the Ultimate Warrior persona. Then, they got behind the self-disciplined goal-setter and serious soulsearcher and introspective person I was. Then, the popularly embraced character (by a huge fanbase that still survives today) and indisputable success of the character never bothered those who owned and ran the company. Yet today (and for the last 10 years), I’m vilified, ridiculed and portrayed as being “Self-Destructive” and as having “confused fantasy with reality” for, in truth, simply having the courage and confidence to use my OWN creativity, make my OWN choices, and take my OWN risks to pursue success at life challenges and goals other than pro-wrestling. Oh, there’s something sickminded and sorry about it and there’s definitely someone who’s committing perversion, all right. But it isn’t I who needs counseling or needs to apologize.

The truth about me is much more than what you think you know. I am a man who likes to have his head where his life actually is. At 47 years of age, I am a man who believes it is a natural expectation that a male should rise up to the different phases of maturity, masculinity and mentoring that he comes to stand before in his life with dignity and a wiser life perspective, not stoop down to in a pitiful, immature attempt to psychologically fit in with youth 20- 30 years younger. It’s a long time adage of mine: when one grows up, one should think and act like it. It’s my personal belief that this tradition is not being put into practice enough by people who are of an age to abide by it.

Although certainly an atypical career experience, being involved and highly successful in sports entertainment by creating and performing a persona like the Ultimate Warrior, make no mistake, it is certainly not the only experience that has made me the man I am today. Warrior Web exist to reveal what has. If you came with any preconceived “silly idea” you should probably set them aside for the time being and get ready for the lesson of your life. Around here, those kind of childish misconceptions are accustomed to being destroyed.

Now imagine having the physical intensity and creative energy to perform Ultimate Warrior practically day in and day out, throughout the year without fail, year after year. Now imagine you aren’t doing that anymore. That energy has to go someplace. I didn’t let myself down. I got busy pursuing other goals.

The site is divided into Body, Mind and Soul because these are the three pillars of the philosophy of life I live by and have used to succeed not only in my Sports Entertainment career, but at life. These are the three fundamental faculties I was endowed with at birth to make my way here on this planet we call Earth. And they are what I’ve long used to guide and build the structure, quality and end-destiny of my life.

Here at Warrior Web I’ve put down plenty of serious thoughts in my own words. There are many. Some going back to 1997. Some posts run 20-25 pages alone.

(NOTE: with the November 2006 redesign many of the previous posts are being reformatted and edited, some even put into the form of PodCasts. Several posts will not be linked until the revised version is completed. Check at my blog,”Warrior’s Machete,” or at Warrior Web’s “Miscellaneous Update” page to find out more.)

What are the writings about? Everything.

* My thoughts on why I’ve always believed in destiny, not coincidence, since I was young kid; and how creating and performing Ultimate Warrior, as a gimmick, was simply a precursor to my discovery that Warrior, as a human being and man with that name, wasn’t one.

* My thoughts on standing up and fighting for my rights when Titan (the McMahons) attempted to tell me they owned what they never had the power to create and I knew my life was MY registered trademark, and MINE ALONE.

* My thoughts on where the business is creatively today, why I’m not in it “on principle,” why its storylines and content are degenerate, depraved and worthless, and why it’s contributing to make today’s culture the exact same way.

* My thoughts on other wrestling talent who have died while bent over their dirty little bags of street drugs, cowered to their filthy refusal to grow up and become real men.

* My thoughts about adults behaving like kids and mentoring gone all to hell ruining our youth.

* My thoughts on having the unique experience of being a heroic role model to young minds and then later in my life coming to find and call the Founding Times and Founding people the absolute heroic role models.

* My thoughts on discovering my love for America and American History.

* Writings about my self-learning journey with “The Great Books of the Western World” (the writings by mankind’s greatest original seekers of knowledge).

* Writings about my unusual exposure to the philosophies other adults hold, philosophies that are anti-life, anti-American, dependent and pathetic — literally subhuman.

* Writings that refuse to cut anyone any slack when it comes to the inescapable fact that there is an undeniable responsibility that comes with the inalienable right.

* Writings about that there is an irrefutable line between what is right and wrong, good and evil, true and false; and how the tolerated blurring of those lines has spawned the gravest dangers we face today in our society — Political Correctness and Moral Relativity.

* Writings about why I am doing what I am today because I am a father and my kids are growing up in this world and I want to do what I can, right now, to prevent an inevitable revolution my kid’s kids will one day have to shed their own blood fighting.

* Writings about culture and politics and liberalism vs. Conservatism — and writings about that liberalism isn’t the classical liberalism it once was and today’s Conservatism isn’t really Conservatism at all either.

* Writings about being my desire to build lifelong relationships with other bold, pure Conservatives, in the truest sense of the concept, through my OWN Mentoring and Leadership Foundation, “Creation Endowed Conservatism.”

* Writings about that there is no NOT ONE one politician from either side who is doing anything to preserve America — the People’s Country, not theirs.

* Writings about the greatest thing that has ever happened to me in my life.

* Writings about what I believe, what I think — how to think and why one must.

* Writings about being a physical animal and a rational animal — and how living a full life demands that you are both.

* Writings about what “warrior” as concept means to me and how it evolved into something bigger and braver than a wrestling persona who intensified the hell out of every wrestling ring he ever entered.

* Writings and more writings…Podcasts, too.

Throughout all my writings and commentaries you will recognize more than a few common themes:

1) I can be a sarcastic SOB at times. My sense of humor leans to the wicked side. This sarcasm is too often mischaracterized and has people believe I am a bitter, angry, and mean person. This is simply not true. I just happen to put the fleetingness of our lives in its proper perspective and figure our Creator has to have a pretty wicked sense of humor himself. In instances where hypocrites, liars, enablers, frauds, and other people who generally screw up their lives but never look in a mirror to see who is responsible (which I absolutely loathe) suffer tragedy due to their irresponsibility, I am absent tolerance and sympathy and my sarcasm can be its most biting. Frankly, I think the brilliance of my sarcastic sense of humor really shines in these “cultural battle” pieces, kinda like a full moon’s reflection radiating off a Great White’s tooth right before he chomps his victim’s bodypart off. Shocking, but lethally tranquilizing. I don’t do it to intentionally upset anyone, but if it does, I don’t care.

2) I’ve taken “warrior” and used my unique awareness of it and given it serious thought as a concept; and I have then further used it to develop a personal philosophy, life, and career that have nothing to do with a wrestling career.

3) My belief in the potential of every human life. Whatever else I discuss during the course of a writing, whatever direction a writing takes, it begins and ends with this: the potential of human life. Ironically, much of the mischaracterization there is about me stems from my positivity about this powerful potential and my unemotional unwillingness to give people who misuse theirs a break. Frankly, my position is, if you don’t use the potential you have to live, you don’t deserve to. I believe there is a potential from life that is to be fulfilled. Many people find that my enthusiasm about it is overdone and my lack of sympathy for others who fail at living up to their life responsibilities too harsh. I simply have none to give to those who won’t think and act for themselves to help themselves. Every life is full of potential. Life is not always the way I’d like to have it either but I don’t sit around feeling sorry for myself, begging to others that life is not fair and would someone please mend the broken parts. My quick fix is: Quit crying and feeling sorry for yourself. Get up, get moving and get doing. For Christsakes, do something — don’t just sit in your own pile of poop. For starters, you have life — that is what is awesome to begin with!! And that alone is an always-forgiving starting place to make great things in your life happen, over and over, again and again.

4) I am not p/c. (What is true never is.) You will not find any here. I hate it; the only thing I hate more are people who know it is destroying the World we live in but have not the integrity and courage to speak up against it. In fact, to counterbalance the pervasive, destructive p/c out on the street, I press the politically-incorrect envelope to the MAX. I can’t stand phonies and two-faced hypocrites. I have no tolerance for purposeful ignorance or stupidity. Herein there is no hesitation to say so. You will find huge doses of moral prejudice for these types here.

5) I do not live my life second-handedly. I am not, first, interested in impressing others above making a lasting impression with my own life. I get my self-esteem from the inside, huge gobs of it, not by desperately soliciting the praise or approval of others. I have no interest in developing empty, phony friendships or wasting my time indulging silly life dramas and gossip just to make nice. It is not that I am mean-spirited. It is that I am indifferent to it all. I could care less and I don’t feel the need to act like I do. My life is my life, and my life is equal to time and I don’t trade my time (life) for wasteful, meaningless experience.

6) I have incredible self-discipline and self-control. I am sure about what I decide and believe and I do not seek or need the advice of others to reach those conclusions. I do not make wrong moral choices. I am not modest about how I conduct myself in regard to all of these. This is off-putting to many people. I do not care. The world is very black and white to me. I know there cannot even be gray unless there were, first, the knowledge of what is black and white. Gray is middle of the road. Gray is wanting to have your cake and eat it too. Life does not work that way. I don’t try to live it that way. I judge people, including myself — HARD. I do not pull my moral punches. If you are put-off by this, then what I have to bluntly state may not sit well with your stomach. Take some Alka-Seltzer or just simply leave.

7) I don’t let my spiritual beliefs pull me around life by the nose. I use the Creator’s gift that I am Endowed with to deal effectively, successfully and happily with my life here on this Earth. I do not use the Creation of my life to make excuses; I use it as an empowerment. I don’t pray for help; I pray for greater challenges. I didn’t come into this life owing anything to anyone and I certainly don’t owe anything to anybody who will not use their OWN incredible Creation of life to do for themselves. I DO NOT BELIEVE IN ORIGINAL SIN. Morality for me does not come from a Bible; it comes from the nature of the Being I am Created. After all, HE Created us just as we are long BEFORE the Bible was created.

8) I don’t practice my philosophy of life or its principles, piecemeal.

9) MOTIVATION is a part of ALL that I do.

Warrior Web — Home of Warrior. Hello!

For nearly 11 years now “Warrior Web,” my official web presence, has been online. In the spring of 2007, “Warrior’s Machete,” this blog, was created to take advantage of the tighter organization and simpler viewer navigation blogs better provide over websites, especially one like “Warrior Web” which has acted as the only archive for hundreds and hundreds of pages of updates, commentary, discussion and opinion.

For the most part, all of what was at “Warrior Web” has been transferred, incorporated and is now stored here at “Warrior’s Machete.” (*This writing was posted mid-May 2007, so re-uploaded files are continually coming online until they are all transferred.) Still, the site remains and sometimes there are links here on the blog that take you to one of its pages.

For instance, this “Warrior Web” Welcome page (great graphics!) and its essay which has always existed at the site to say Hello! and provide a general overview about me and what you can expect to find therein, or, as the case is now, herein at the blog. That essay is provided here below, as well.

*************************************************************

Welcome to Warrior Web. The official web presence of the man who Created, Performed and OWNs The Ultimate Warrior. I am that man. My (full, legal) name is Warrior.

First, the slaughtering of a few inveterate rumors.

1) There was only one Ultimate Warrior. That is, in Sports Entertainment there was only one person who “did” Ultimate Warrior — that was me. There were not different guys or a twin brother or look-a-like cousins who also “did” him. I created him; I was the only one who ever legally and legitimately performed him; and I own the USPTO legally registered trademark rights of Ultimate Warrior as an Intellectual Property.

2) I am not dead. Nor have I ever died. Don’t laugh. There are plenty of kooks (too many) who write and inform me that I am or that I have — and then demand I write back and confirm it!

3) I lead an active, constructive and fulfilling life. Despite inaccurate rumors, vindictive mischaracterizations, and flagrant defamation claiming otherwise, the reality is I have built an incredibly empowered life on my OWN terms. As a devoted husband and father, I could not have custom-ordered a more loving, healthy, spirit-filled, and happy home life. And as a man who has throughout his whole life been inspired by the setting of new goals and their different challenges, and the ability to think for oneself which accompanies these, my day-to-day life environment is creative, productive, and positive.

To find those who truly have self-destructed, keep your eye on the obituaries and visit the gravesides of other WWF/E talent who’ve died of various forms of self-indulgence, beginning with their refusal to mature as real men and grow up and act their age. When you are done there, go look into the hollow-souled eyes of those Sports Entertainment figures you once thought defiant, strong, proud, and independent who’ve crawled back into the cave to have their minds, lives and characters controlled because they were afraid of being real men, afraid of the real world and real challenges, and felt safer, as Plato showed us, viewing the shadows from the inside.

If you’ve believed any of these rumors you were duped. Plain and simple. If you want to continue to believe them — as some, for whatever sick reason, do — then I can assure you the objective, sane, clearheaded thinking going on here will be of little interest to you.

Warrior Web found its way into digital existence late 1996-early 1997 (just after my last appearance in the WWF). I took a simple software program that was available back then and I threw it together. My goal was to simply have a web presence. Nothing fancy. Just something easy that would recognize Ultimate Warrior’s existence and that I could use as a forum to discuss all that lie ahead for me in a future outside the ring I positively looked forward to getting on with.

Although since its inception both the site and I have gone through some changes, Warrior Web in its simplest, yet significant, terms still remains a journal about my life and my interests, and the beliefs that make up the philosophy of life by which I live and its natural, healthy evolution.

If you have come here expecting to find endless archives of Ultimate Warrior wrestling analysis, biography and fanship, you’ve come to the wrong place. I am a man who believes setting different challenging goals and learning new things is something you do throughout your life. No matter the degree of previous success. When it was my goal to succeed in sports entertainment, I devoted everything I had to give — time, energy, thinking: every breath of my life. Now that it is no longer my goal, I don’t.

It’s not that I do not appreciate all those who were fans. I most certainly do. I’ve never forgotten (or will ever forget) how instrumental fans were to Ultimate Warrior’s success. Anybody who communicates with me through the site, met me out in public casually or professionally on one of my speaking engagements, knows this very well. But my life has moved on to other really productive, positive, and spectacular goals, and my time today is very much spent on those, learning from them, enjoying and succeeding at them; all of them at this moment, outside a wrestling ring.

Each day new visitors to Warrior Web write comments to me similar to this: “I started to read what you had to say; at first I was under the mistaken impression that you were quite possibly still running around doing your character from the ring. But, after reading further reading, I found that you had deep insights, you had used your experiences to shape and strengthen you.”

Well, for starters, if you came here expecting that the guy who created the Ultimate Warrior gimmick would not be intense, I guess you’re going to be in for a surprise. After all, the intensity and physical explosiveness Ultimate Warrior displayed is the most fixed impression you and the Sports Entertainment industry will never, ever forget. (Witnessing how so many others have so pathetically tried, many even under the duress of management instruction, to replicate it sadly informs all of us of the hard-nosed reality of this.) Yes, wrestling is choreographed, but there are just some personality aspects of the business and its talent that can’t be faked. Ultimate Warrior ran because I was running him. He was intense because I already was. So mind your manners and be thankful that I’m an old-fashioned kind of guy who believes there are some traditions better left unchanged. My natural personal intensity is one. It never will. Whatever I am doing – wrestling, writing, working out, speaking, even weaving pot holders — I am going to do it with action and intensity.

It also seems very natural to me that I have allowed my experiences to shape and strengthen me. And I am always a little surprised others are surprised that I have. I just don’t think it is a thing to be surprised by — or give praise to. I think it is better that we save ourselves to be surprised, and ashamed, of others who don’t. It’s also just as natural that my philosophy of life — fostered by my life experiences — was forged, and has subsequently evolved throughout the years, by experiences that are entirely unique to my life. I am who am I today, and in the past been who’ve I’ve been, in direct accordance to the sum total effect of the experiences I have had at any distinct moment along the timeline of my life. I wasn’t the same whole person after I had the experience of my wrestling career as I was before; and the same holds true, now, 20 years after my beginnings in that industry and 10 years removed from it altogether.

Misbelieve what you want, but “Ultimate Warrior” as a “persona” didn’t just drop from the sky and create itself out of thin air. I created and performed and evolved him, creatively, out of who I was and what I believed at the time. “Persona” is, after all, even uncannily more so considering my Ultimate Warrior gimmick and his performance apparel, Latin for “the psyche behind the mask, the soul behind the exterior of one’s character as one presents it to the world, masking one’s inner thoughts, feelings.”

Ultimate Warrior was simply and purely an exterior amplification of my own character, creativity, and charisma — my OWN ideas and my OWN beliefs; all of them attributes which a character like The Ultimate Warrior would have to be made of. There was no one to hold my hand or nobody who handed me the gimmick and instructed me about how to portray and evolve him. Yes, “no one” and “nobody” includes Vince McMahon and his sycophants.

For twenty-five years before I ever crossed paths with the unusual proposition of getting in the pro-wrestling business, my “character” was inevitably shaped and strengthened by my other life experiences that had already well-forged the philosophy of life I entered the business holding.

Ultimate Warrior’s philosophical core paralleled my own — and that is what, I believe, contributed, in largest part, to his success.

Ultimate Warrior was a “persona” who embodied energy, strong work-ethic, unconquerable determination, self-discipline, self-responsibility, self-accountability, and self-belief. He was inspired by great acts and ideas, and believed in time-honored virtues like integrity, honor, loyalty, and heritage. He was interested in actualizing the potential of his life, being the best as much as he was created to be, and believed in earning what he got by his own merits.

He creatively engaged inspiration and guidance from the warriors of the past. He believed in the worthiness and honor in seeking challenge and making sacrifice. He believed in an immortal spiritual existence, a continued karmic interaction and connectedness with the souls and spirits of warriors who had already lived and warriors yet to live; time past working energetically with present time and time yet to come.

He also believed in that basic, classic battle cause, the singular reason to stand up and step in and fight for what you believe, even if you had to give your life for it: Good vs Evil. There was one or the other, just like there was either right or wrong, true or false, and he had no tolerance for any forms in-between.

Ultimate Warrior believed that life meant more than just a purposeless passing of time, an insignificant trek from its birth to its death. He believed in destiny, not coincidence, and ideals that were greater and longer living than just the time period of his one life. No one gave ME these creative expressions — they came from inside.

Like it or not, believe it or not, accept the reality of it or not, nothing is more clear: One cannot do what one is not capable of. Ex nihilo nihil fit (Nothing is created from nothing).

So it was, too, that the disciplines, traits, virtues, and beliefs that made me capable of creating and performing Ultimate Warrior would, in time, also be the same disciplines, traits, virtues, and beliefs giving me the strength and confidence to reject certain personal behaviors and business practices of people and go on beyond Sports Entertainment and achieve other goals. Looking back now, 20 years removed from the beginning, it’s clear to see that it was inevitable that sports entertainment would be only a chapter in my life, not a whole book.

It’s so eerily ironic. When all I’d been given was the opportunity to prove what I had to offer, I was praised and awarded great success for exploiting my unique disciplines and beliefs through the performances of the Ultimate Warrior persona. Then, they got behind the self-disciplined goal-setter and serious soulsearcher and introspective person I was. Then, the popularly embraced character (by a huge fanbase that still survives today) and indisputable success of the character never bothered those who owned and ran the company. Yet today (and for the last 10 years), I’m vilified, ridiculed and portrayed as being “Self-Destructive” and as having “confused fantasy with reality” for, in truth, simply having the courage and confidence to use my OWN creativity, make my OWN choices, and take my OWN risks to pursue success at life challenges and goals other than pro-wrestling. Oh, there’s something sickminded and sorry about it, all right, and there’s definitely someone who’s committing perversion. But it isn’t I who needs counseling or needs to apologize.

The truth about me is much more than what you think you know. I am a man who likes to have his head where his life actually is. At 47 years of age, I am a man who believes it is a natural expectation that a male should rise up to the different phases of maturity, masculinity and mentoring that he comes to stand before in his life with dignity and a wiser life perspective, not stoop down to in a pitiful, immature attempt to psychologically fit in with youth 20- 30 years younger. It’s a long time adage of mine: when one grows up, one should think and act like it. It’s my personal belief that this tradition is not being put into practice enough by people who are of an age to abide by it.

Although certainly an atypical career experience, being involved and highly successful in sports entertainment by creating and performing a persona like the Ultimate Warrior, make no mistake, it is certainly not the only experience that has made me the man I am today. Warrior Web exist to reveal what has. If you came with any preconceived “silly ideas” you should probably set them aside for the time being and get ready for the lesson of your life. Around here, those kind of childish misconceptions are accustomed to being destroyed.

Now imagine having the physical intensity and creative energy to perform Ultimate Warrior practically day in and day out, throughout the year without fail, year after year. Now imagine you aren’t doing that anymore. That energy has to go someplace. I didn’t let myself down. I got busy pursuing other goals.

The site is divided into Body, Mind and Soul because these are the three pillars of the philosophy of life I live by and have used to succeed not only in my Sports Entertainment career, but at life. These are the three fundamental faculties I was endowed with at birth to make my way here on this planet we call Earth. And they are what I’ve long used to guide and build the structure, quality and end-destiny of my life.

Here at Warrior Web I’ve put down plenty of serious thoughts in my own words. There are many. Some going back to 1997. Some posts run 20-25 pages alone.

(NOTE: with the November 2006 redesign many of the previous posts are being reformatted and edited, some even put into the form of PodCasts. Several posts will not be linked until the revised version is completed.)

What are the writings about? Everything.

* My thoughts on why I’ve always believed in destiny, not coincidence, since I was young kid; and how creating and performing Ultimate Warrior, as a gimmick, was simply a precursor to my discovery that Warrior, as a human being and man with that name, wasn’t one.

* My thoughts on standing up and fighting for my rights when Titan (the McMahons) attempted to tell me they owned what they never had the power to create and I knew my life was MY registered trademark, and MINE ALONE.

* My thoughts on where the business is creatively today, why I’m not in it “on principle,” why its storylines and content are degenerate, depraved and worthless, and why it’s contributing to make today’s culture the exact same way.

* My thoughts on other wrestling talent who have died while bent over their dirty little bags of street drugs, cowered to their filthy refusal to grow up and become real men.

* My thoughts about adults behaving like kids and mentoring gone all to hell ruining our youth.

* My thoughts on having the unique experience of being a heroic role model to young minds and then later in my life coming to find and call the Founding Times and Founding people the absolute heroic role models.

* My thoughts on discovering my love for America and American History.

* Writings about my self-learning journey with “The Great Books of the Western World” (the writings by mankind’s greatest original seekers of knowledge).

* Writings about my unusual exposure to the philosophies other adults hold, philosophies that are anti-life, anti-American, dependent and pathetic — literally subhuman.

* Writings that refuse to cut anyone any slack when it comes to the inescapable fact that there is an undeniable responsibility that comes with the inalienable right.

* Writings about that there is an irrefutable line between what is right and wrong, good and evil, true and false; and how the tolerated blurring of those lines has spawned the gravest dangers we face today in our society — Political Correctness and Moral Relativity.

* Writings about why I am doing what I am today because I am a father and my kids are growing up in this world and I want to do what I can, right now, to prevent an inevitable revolution my kid’s kids will one day have to shed their own blood fighting.

* Writings about culture and politics and liberalism vs. Conservatism — and writings about that liberalism isn’t the classical liberalism it once was and today’s Conservatism isn’t really Conservatism at all either.

* Writings about being my desire to build lifelong relationships with other bold, pure Conservatives, in the truest sense of the concept, through my OWN Mentoring and Leadership Foundation, “Creation Endowed Conservatism.”

* Writings about that there is no NOT ONE one politician from either side who is doing anything to preserve America — the People’s Country, not theirs.

* Writings about the greatest thing that has ever happened to me in my life.

* Writings about what I believe, what I think — how to think and why one must.

* Writings about being a physical animal and a rational animal — and how living a full life demands that you are both.

* Writings about what “warrior” as concept means to me and how it evolved into something bigger and braver than a wrestling persona who intensified the hell out of every wrestling ring he ever entered.

* Writings and more writings…Podcasts, too.

Throughout all my writings and commentaries you will recognize more than a few common themes:

1) I can be a sarcastic SOB at times. My sense of humor leans to the wicked side. This sarcasm is too often mischaracterized and has people believe I am a bitter, angry, and mean person. This is simply not true. I just happen to put the fleetingness of our lives in its proper perspective and figure our Creator has to have a pretty wicked sense of humor himself. In instances where hypocrites, liars, enablers, frauds, and other people who generally screw up their lives but never look in a mirror to see who is responsible (which I absolutely loathe) suffer tragedy due to their irresponsibility, I am absent tolerance and sympathy and my sarcasm can be its most biting. Frankly, I think the brilliance of my sarcastic sense of humor really shines in these “cultural battle” pieces, kinda like a full moon’s reflection radiating off a Great White’s tooth right before he chomps his victim’s bodypart off. Shocking, but lethally tranquilizing. I don’t do it to intentionally upset anyone, but if it does, I don’t care.

2) I’ve taken “warrior” and used my unique awareness of it and given it serious thought as a concept; and I have then further used it to develop a personal philosophy, life, and career that have nothing to do with a wrestling career.

3) My belief in the potential of every human life. Whatever else I discuss during the course of a writing, whatever direction a writing takes, it begins and ends with this: the potential of human life. Ironically, much of the mischaracterization there is about me stems from my positivity about this powerful potential and my unemotional unwillingness to give people who misuse theirs a break. Frankly, my position is, if you don’t use the potential you have to live, you don’t deserve to. I believe there is a potential from life that is to be fulfilled. Many people find that my enthusiasm about it is overdone and my lack of sympathy for others who fail at living up to their life responsibilities too harsh. I simply have none to give to those who won’t think and act for themselves to help themselves. Every life is full of potential. Life is not always the way I’d like to have it either but I don’t sit around feeling sorry for myself, begging to others that life is not fair and would someone please mend the broken parts. My quick fix is: Quit crying and feeling sorry for yourself. Get up, get moving and get doing. For Christsakes, do something — don’t just sit in your own pile of poop. For starters, you have life — that is what is awesome to begin with!! And that alone is an always-forgiving starting place to make great things in your life happen, over and over, again and again.

4) I am not p/c. (What is true never is.) You will not find any here. I hate it; the only thing I hate more are people who know it is destroying the World we live in but have not the integrity and courage to speak up against it. In fact, to counterbalance the pervasive, destructive p/c out on the street, I press the politically-incorrect envelope to the MAX. I can’t stand phonies and two-faced hypocrites. I have no tolerance for purposeful ignorance or stupidity. Herein there is no hesitation to say so. You will find huge doses of moral prejudice for these types here.

5) I do not live my life second-handedly. I am not, first, interested in impressing others above making a lasting impression with my own life. I get my self-esteem from the inside, huge gobs of it, not by desperately soliciting the praise or approval of others. I have no interest in developing empty, phony friendships or wasting my time indulging silly life dramas and gossip just to make nice. It is not that I am mean-spirited. It is that I am indifferent to it all. I could care less and I don’t feel the need to act like I do. My life is my life, and my life is equal to time and I don’t trade my time (life) for wasteful, meaningless experience.

6) I have incredible self-discipline and self-control. I am sure about what I decide and believe and I do not seek or need the advice of others to reach those conclusions. I do not make wrong moral choices. I am not modest about how I conduct myself in regard to all of these. This is off-putting to many people. I do not care. The world is very black and white to me. I know there cannot even be gray unless there were, first, the knowledge of what is black and white. Gray is middle of the road. Gray is wanting to have your cake and eat it too. Life does not work that way. I don’t try to live it that way. I judge people, including myself — HARD. I do not pull my moral punches. If you are put-off by this, then what I have to bluntly state may not sit well with your stomach. Take some Alka-Seltzer or just simply leave.

7) I don’t let my spiritual beliefs pull me around life by the nose. I use the Creator’s gift that I am Endowed with to deal effectively, successfully and happily with my life here on this Earth. I do not use the Creation of my life to make excuses; I use it as an empowerment. I don’t pray for help; I pray for greater challenges. I didn’t come into this life owing anything to anyone and I certainly don’t owe anything to anybody who will not use their OWN incredible Creation of life to do for themselves. I DO NOT BELIEVE IN ORIGINAL SIN. Morality for me does not come from a Bible; it comes from the nature of the Being I am Created. After all, HE Created us just as we are long BEFORE the Bible was created.

8) I don’t practice my philosophy of life or its principles, piecemeal.

9) MOTIVATION is a part of ALL that I do.

I am Your Founding Father of Ring Intensity,

Warrior
