Long time reader of your work and an occasional commenter on the website over the years. Your "Want of a Nail" column was one of my favorite pieces in sports writing ever.
I could write about how HHH is screwing everyone, or Punk and Bryan should be pushed to the moon- but I was really hoping I could get a small plug for my eBay auctions that are going on right now selling some of my DVD wrestling collection. I'm selling off all my ROH DVDs which include plenty that are no longer sold. Also, have the Pioneer Entertainment ECW releases, and the Wrestling Gold stuff with Meltzer and Cornette on commentary. Here is the link for one auction and the rest are visible from there.
I wrote my first column for the site. It is a cool site that features talented writers. If you’re one of those people who likes going to websites just to read columns, this is a good place for you. In my next column, I’ll be sure to plug this site as well, to start a cross-promotion sort of thing.
Apparently, people are having problems opening the link. It works fine on my end. Try this one if the previous one doesn’t work:
Since you're the go-to for wrestling-related plugs, wondering if you'd help a longtime reader out….
A few years ago I did a stand-up comedy show about being a wrestling fan and I’ve now written a book inspired by the show. The basic premise is to provide a potted history of wrestling running parallel with my life growing up as a fan, why I stayed as one and the varying levels of social acceptability it had during my childhood, adolescence and young adulthood.
Its structure is inspired by Nick Hornby’s Fever Pitch and the hope is that it will appeal to both wrestling and non-wrestling fans in equal measure just as Hornby achieved with football/soccer fans and non-fansThanks,
Hi Scott. I was wondering if you wouldn’t mind giving a shout out to a webseries I co-wrote and directed on the BoD? It’s called Project Hollywood. It’s a comedy, sort of Entourage meets Arrested Development/It’s Always Sunny. The first two episodes are up on www.projecthollywoodwebseries.com, with two new episodes released every Wednesday. People can also find us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/projecthollywoodseries). I think some of your readers will dig it.~Scotty J
Longtime reader & owner of your books; first time writer/plug requester. I write comic book reviews & wrestling reviews/previews at a site called The Rec Room (my author page is http://therec-room.com/author/matt-jacobson/ , the site is http://therec-room.com ). The rest of the site has restaurant, video game, art/culture, whatever else reviews (including a weekly Walking Dead roundtable I also contribute to). If you're interested in reading it or plugging it, that would be fantastic.
Hope all is well.

I have a large amount of past Apter mags, WWF mags and some assorted titles that I would like to sell off. The issues range from 1991 to 2002. I have the same titles to sell on Amazon but I figure it would be worth a try to plug them on the blog as well. All titles range from like new to very good condition (VG being some wear or bends). Price would be negotiable. I will field any requests and questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for the help.

I've been reading you forever, don't watch the current product, only read you, etc.
Anyway, I've come to realize that I have a bunch of WWE/ECW/TNA/ROH DVDs that I literally haven't watched in at least 3-4 years, so I'm selling them on ebay. I have no idea how "rare" or valuable any of them are, but I think I have a decent lot. Would you be willing to plug my auction? Thank you!
Hope that helps!

> Hey, Scott, you might remember me from your older blog on livejournal, but I just started working with Scott Criscuolo and Justin Rozzero on a site called The Place To Be Nation about pop culture, sports, wrestling, comics, music, and the whole lot. I am going to primarily do sports and some movie related articles and I did one about the night Austin wrestled Dude Love at Over the Edge, which was on the same night the Bulls played the Pacers in Game 7 of the Eastern Finals. I think you would enjoy it. They will post it either tonight or tomorrow.
> Http://www.placetobenation.com I am of course a big fan of the Place To Be podcast and I'm glad they finally have a website for it.
