Pro Wrestling Post Merges Back With Vortex Effect

August 27, 2016 // 0 Comments

A few months back, I split wrestling from Vortex Effect and created a wrestling only site called Pro Wrestling Post. Looking back, that probably wasn’t a good idea and truth be told I should’ve learned that lesson a couple of years ago when we tried the same thing by splintering off the movie content with Cinema Vortex. As of today, [...]

Site News: Summer Clean Up Underway

July 6, 2016 // 0 Comments

This is just a quick post to say that I’m doing cleaning and maintenance on the site, and some parts of the site are currently broken. Cleaning wise, 1,054 posts have been removed. These are posts that were irrelevant to anyone today (if you still care about the date of the Assassin’s Creed Revelations beta, I can tell you that you [...]

Site Maintenance Ongoing For Next Couple of Weeks

November 3, 2015 // 0 Comments

This is just a quick heads up that some “behind the scenes” maintenance on the site began and today and will be ongoing for the next two weeks or so. Nothing that will directly impact the site for most visitors, but just some general clean up. The number one thing that is being done is a complete clean up and revamping of our [...]

State of the Site Address: May 2015

May 27, 2015 // 3 Comments

The month of May has but a few days remaining; we’ll soon be in June which means 2015 will be half way gone. Seems like a perfect time to quickly talk about the state of Vortex Effect and the year that has been thus far. The banner says “monthly address,” but I doubt it. After all, this banner was made quite some time ago and I [...]

Vortex Effect Returns to

April 24, 2014 // 2 Comments

Back in January, I announced that we would be moving away from and would be venturing off on our own to the world of self-hosting. In early February, we did just that as Vortex Effect moved to being hosted on DreamHost. At the time, it was a good move. We were established and had what had been a nice follower/subscriber base. The [...]

Teacarina by STL Ocarina Review

February 17, 2014 // 0 Comments

We’re known mostly for reviewing games and movies, and maybe some wrestling content, but the site actually covers a lot of ground. Occasionally, I like to review stuff outside of our usual focus. A year ago I reviewed some green tea from Rishi that I really like. Since I do enjoy hot green tea (and other kinds of tea as well), I jumped at the [...]

We recently had the honor of receiving this “One Lovely Blog” award from the wonderful blogger Sam Leung at Cheeese Toastie and Video Games where she blogs about video games of course. If you don’t already read and follow her blog then you definitely should. Sam is a talented writer and has some fun video content as well, and she’s [...]

No More Quick Daily Reviews

March 9, 2013 // 10 Comments

If you noticed that there was no Quick Daily Review yesterday, it’s because I’m retiring the daily series after 65 days of it. Attempting to stick to a deadline like this reminded me of why I quit writing wrestling columns for Lords of Pain (well one of the reasons): When the hobby becomes a chore and ceases to be fun, it’s time [...]
