Well, folks…. It’s good to be home here in Los Angeles. The weather has been fantastic. This weekend is supposed to be sunny and hot. It is a nice change from the cold weather in Vancouver. I’m finally starting to get over whatever it was I had during the last few days of filming. It’s also nice to get back in the gym on a regular basis. It was hard to get to the gym while shooting. Still in the process of leaning out.
Recoil, my latest movie, was released on DVD on March 6. I did radio promo stuff on the 7th. Word on the street has been pretty strong. Lots of feedback on my Twitter account @steveaustinBSR. Thanks.
It looks like the Austin Clan is headed to the Broken Skull Ranch next week. We will stay for 10-14 days and return to L.A. I have a few things in the works, and I need to be here to take care of business.
I talked to the Heartbreak Kid, Shawn Michaels, (@ShawnMichaels) this morning. Looks like Shawn and his film crew will be coming down to the BSR to film a hog/turkey/varmint hunt for his hunting show, Macmillan River Adventures. I look forward to visiting and hunting with him. Shawn and I ran in two different packs while we were in WWE, but have always maintained a friendship and respect for one another. It will be good to just hang out and hunt. The competitive nature and environment of putting everything on the line to be a top guy in WWE no longer exists for either one of us. It will be cool just to sit around and trade some war stories. As I have previously stated, I am a huge fan of Shawn’s work. I am sure we will find some success in our hunting endeavor, but as anyone who has hunted knows…There are no guarantees! And that’s what makes hunting so challenging, unpredictable, and fun.
On another note, I have a creative meeting tomorrow for BSR Gear. It is just around the corner, folks. First things available will be T-shirts. Hats, beer coozies, hoodies, jewelry, etc. will follow shortly thereafter. There will also be a select number of BSR Championship Belts made by the Ace of Belts, Dave Millican as well. I will post info on the website and my Twitter account ASAP on when the gear has arrived.
P.S. If there is some kind of gear you would like to see, please send me your suggestions and ideas.
