Hello, As you can see by the posting dates I have not been very active on this Blog account. I would like to let you know that I have been directing my efforts to my other websites and invite you to visit them.

Check back with these sites regularly as I have a lot of new content being added as well as a shopping cart featuring strongman souvineers such as adjustable wrench pen holders, horseshoes twisted into hearts, T-shirts, and my limited edition series of framed and un-framed prints that feature my steel bar sculptures to name a few. I am also working on several DVD projects, some of which are in collaboration with Dennis Rogers and 88 Pound Productions.

If you have any questions for me or would like to schedule an appearance, performance, or personal / group coaching session in regards to Oldetime Strongman direct your email to .

Thank you and best regards,

Remembering A Legend

I received a call earlier today to let me know that "The Great" Joe Rollino has passed. I feel fortunate to have known Joe, and to have heard his incredible stories. He will be missed. Joe was 104 years old.

Tearin' 'Em Up

I have been enjoying tearing all sorts of phone books from around the world, and thought I'd share a few of them here. This video opens up with me doing a "Grip-n-Rip" style tear ,Ala Dennis Rogers, LEFT handed. As one of my favorite movie quotes mentions, "no, I'm not left handed". LOL! After that is a series of right handed "G-n-R" tears with books from around the States and the world. Notice the clean, straight tear line in the book - a sign of legitimacy in tearing phone books.
