Screenshot for a great blog

Since we are apparently now updating listeners on the status of old, irrelevant, outdated, defunct blogs, it seemed the perfect time to talk about a blog that has fallen by the wayside … way too early in its lifespan.

The Brady Hicks Myspace blog [RIP September 2004 - June 2009] was a fascinating read into the everyday life of a young, aspiring wrestling journalist THE Brady Hicks of Pro Wrestling Illustrated. It provides an in-depth look into Brady’s ups (engagement, appearance on The Daily Show, and so much more) and downs (The death of Brady’s favorite independent coverband, Monkeybus) in a manner that no other site has ever quite covered.

With moods that ranged from “Romantic” to “Awake,” it was quite an insightful read. Sadly, it passed way before it should have.

Here are a few samples, for your enjoyment:

American Idol and my sister Taylor

Current mood:awake

Thanks to everyone who has shown so much support and love to my sister Taylor Hicks, who won American Idol last week. She was barely recognizable on stage, and if you ever heard her singing in the shower you would swear she was a different person!!!

Dear Brady

It’s Richard here from the BBC World Service.

We’re looking into the Chris Benoit story, and really enjoyed some of the things you’ve been writing.

Might you be available for a brief interview with us a little later today between 1600 and 1800 your time?

I’d be delighted if you could get back to me as soon as you’ve a moment, either at this e-mail address or on XXX XX XXX XXX XXXX.

All best

Dear Brady

Many thanks for your message.  I suspect — at this stage — it’s too late.

But I may well get in touch at some point in the future, as I think this story may continue to develop.

Thanks again — and all the best
