Links to all my sites

Google penalizes webmasters who list all their sites on all their pages, so I'm putting links to all my websites here on one page.

Blogs and sites that are entirely mine:

  • Big Ass Superstar - Where you are now. The personal blog of Scott Simpson. The domain was registered around 2000 and the blog has been live since 2005.
  • Cygnals Multimedia - A site I started around 1995. That means one of my web sites is older than many of the people on the Web. It's a dusty ghost town, as I have not given it a significant update since about 1999, and most of the good content has been moved here.
  • Toronto Wrestling Photos and Wrestling Photos - Both sites go to Toronto-Wrestling.com, where I'm showcasing my collection of hundreds of original pro wrestling pictures from the 1980s WWF era in Toronto, my involvement in independent promotions Teen Pro Wrestling, Midget Mania, the RWA and others, and eventually my grown-up fandom.
  • Halifax Wrestling chronicles my Nova Scotia wrestling experiences since moving to Halifax in 2005. If you've been to Halifax wrestling events since then, check in and share your memories.
  • Cub Is A Band - The evolution of the original Cygnals Cub Page, which is the oldest and now perhaps the only fan site for Cub, a punk band from the mid-1990s.
  • Your Slideshow - An attempt to monetize my skills with video editing, turning peoples' photographs into moving slide shows. Hasn't really panned out.

Social Media:

  • Facebook - I'm not on Facebook. I've never had a Facebook account. Sorry.
  • Google+ - But I've been on Google+ for a while. Add me to your circles. Tons of photos here.
  • Twitter - @simpson957
  • YouTube - More than a million views for my videos
  • Flickr - bigasssuperstar - My photostream since 2005 including lots of 80s/90s wrestling.
  • LinkedIn - A professional profile for business networking
  • SoundCloud - Easy access to my songs, music and select radio sound clips
  • OnlineMusicNetwork.ca - A good idea at the time.

Other sites to see:

  • about.me/scott_simpson - Serves about the same function as the page you're reading. Easy way to share "here's all you need to know about Scott Simpson."
  • News95.7 - News-Talk station in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where I'm an anchor, reporter and talk show host. You'll find a lot of my news stories here.
  • YouSuckatKijiji.com - The funniest, weirdest and worst ads on Kijiji online classifieds. I read it a lot and submit funny Kijiji ads.
  • Vimeo and 500px are classy video and photo sites that I'm on but don't use as much as YouTube and Flickr.
  • Klout - began confusing me after they upgraded the whole interface, but you can still +K me.
  • Formspring and Kred, but I go there so rarely, I'm not even going to link them.

Gordon turns four and has questions

Gordon wanted to know where mommy went.

Not what happened to her body, but where SHE went.

We celebrated his fourth birthday this weekend with three gatherings. One at our house with his little friends. One at nana and grampa's house. One in Stratford with the Simpson clan.


The big party for the kids was a success. I'd never planned such an event. Thank goodness for the Internet, where I found a Martha Stewart article that laid out the basics. And thank goodness for Party City, which had a ton of Transformers party stuff ready to buy. I wasn't feeling well, but managed to pull it off. Thanks to sister Shannon and SIL Amy for being the Designated Adults who helped in wrangling and last-minute logistics. G thought the whole event was kind of loud, but he really enjoyed it. And I feel like a winner for making it happen -- some of the other parents even chimed in that they now know what goes into a kid's party, since they were as clueless as me! Great!

Great time at nana&#…

Chugging along through a slump

Gosh, I haven't posted since before Christmas.

I got through Christmas. I put on a good Christmas for Gordon. Maybe a great Christmas. But I also got a nasty cold and came out of the holidays in a funk.

As you've seen here on the blog, I was full of HEY, LIFE! and WOW, OPPORTUNITY! and BLANK CANVAS! sentiments for months. But then I just fell flat and seemed to lose interest in everything. Social life, self-care, home improvement, good food, personal finance, hobbies. It just all went plop and I didn't really dig doing anything any more. Thank goodness for friends and family asking me to come out and do stuff.

Now, I'm not one to shirk responsibilities when others depend on me, so I'm lucky that others depend on me. Business has been picking up at work, so that's good. And Gordon is my inspiration to keep things interesting.

We got out and about to some fun stuff, including an overnight road trip to Hamilton to see Paw Patrol Live.


Something weird happened at t…

The sweet smell of success (the opposite of that)

Let me lock in the system at warp 2 Push it into systematic overdrive - U know what 2 do - Ween, "Poop Ship Destroyer"
Pardon the juvenile humour off the top, but this journey has been so unreal that I can't help but fall back on laughing in the absence of appropriate things to say.

Amanda's headed for another big surgery this week.

Quick recap of how we got here: She went into hospital in late January to have her ovarian cancer tumours taken out. That surgery ended up taking a foot-long chunk of her colon, so they spliced what was left to her nature-given outlet. Well, that blew apart and she went for emergency colostomy surgery. THAT didn't work, either, as illustrated by our guiding light with the scalpel hand and the silver tongue, Dr. Sugimoto:


The business end of the remaining colon sloughed its way back into her insides and strictured itself off, creating a cul-de-sac with no escape for poop nor gas. They put her on TPN (full nutrition by IV) but let her …
