Friday LinkFrogging - 11/12/10

Dr. Bruce and Stephe are en route to Austin Comic Con, where the streets will soon run with Geeky effluent of all manner. It's cool though. I'm saving myself for full immersion at the big one (San Diego) and the good doctor left a little prezzie behind, a visual representation of one of the Austin event's fairer participants, Torrie Wilson.

Wilson entered this world  in Boise, Idaho, and became a successful female body-builder before moving to L.A. to -- all togther now -- pursue a career in acting. Now, I know better than to make any connectiong between wrestling and acting (I was still young and impressionable when Andy Kaufman made that mistake, and it's never left me) but as it turned out, Wilson's big break came one night when she attended a WCW event with her boyfriend and was asked to accompany Scott Steiner to the ring.

She made her professional debut not long after as nWo agent Samantha, sent to seduce David  Flair and turn him against his father,Ric Flair. The girl must have skills, because a 7-year career with WWF followed (featuring signature moves such as the Schoolgirl, the Tilt-A-Whirl Headscissors takedown, and the Sitout Facebuster) as did two Playboy appearances.

And now? Aside from the occasional celebrity reality-show appearance (most notably battling Lou Diamond Phillips to the end in 'I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here') and one-offs in the ring, she's pulling double duty for GonzoGeek,  serving as this week's LinkFrogging hostess while at the same time breathlessly awaiting the attentions of our intrepid field reporters in Austin.

Lucky girl? Well, yes, but there was a lot of hard work in there too. Lucky readers? Absolutely. Follow me please, the Links await.

I bet we run into some of these hipster superheroes in Austin.

The Dark Knight in the footlights.

According to this guy you’ll only have 4 months to live afterwards anyway, so if you’re thinking about that cruise up there you might want to get off the fence.

 But not to worry, one of our newly ascendant political ‘leaders’ says God is going to save us from climate change. Maybe these two cats are talking about the same thing.

Atheist? Perhaps death-by-alien-invasion is more your style.

In any case, don’t forget to bring your new portable Pro Tools 9 so you can share your fresh jams with the hereafter/post-apocalyptic wasteland.

You might even be able to record Steve Martin the next time he feels like busting out something like this. He’ll probably be wherever you are.

 One question that won’t need answering any more….What is vajazzling?

Oh, and if you want to sample Wilson's wares in person and happen to be in the Houston area, you can do so at Jaded Clothing in the Market Street district of the Woodlands.
