THE INFAMOUS CREW™ Writer Of The Year: Shaman’s Harvest

I’ve had alot of talented people stop by theinfamousjcity.com and bless the spot with some great columns and insight on the wrestling business. From Ace Hart’s rankings of WWE Superstars, Ana_ZackPack’s female view on the business, Kieran’s sophisticated and highly intelligent take on the WWE, my wife Meek3rz stopping by and exposing Cody Rhodes as a homosexual, Wrestling Ramble’s very own Ray The Rambler coming through with a blog or two, the resurrection of The Modern Native, and TKO writing about the Invasion angle and hooking it up with some dope ass music, it’s safe to say that THE INFAMOUS CREW™ had every aspect of the game on lock. You might have noticed that I left out two writers from that list didn’t you? Well, that’s because I look at them differently than the rest. They are the two most consistent writers on the site and while I appreciate everybody’s contributions as equally as I can, and there is no doubt in my mind that every guest blog I have ever received has helped the site grow, it just wouldn’t have been the same without the contributions of Tony Kegger and Shaman’s Harvest. They are my MVP’s. They are my ALL-STARS, and they make me want to become a better writer.

With that being said, I can only give this prestigious accolade to one writer. People have asked me who my favorite writer on this site is other than myself and I’ve always jokingly said that I would wait until the end of the year to give an answer. I was only half serious, but here we are, it’s the end of the fucking year already. Damn did it go by fast, huh? Anyways, the reason I’ve avoided this question is because I hate picking favorites. Tony has been with this site since the beginning and has written many great columns. I have even joined him in writing some of his “What If…” columns and it has been a pleasure both working with him and providing him with a place where he could have his work read by thousands of people.

Shaman’s Harvest on the other hand has been by my side raising all kinds of hell in the IWC since my therealshyt.com days. We have had our ups and downs, but trust me when I tell you that I didn’t let any type of bias or past interactions influence this decision. When I started this site and Shaman expressed interest in writing again, I didn’t know what to expect. He used to contribute cool little columns on my old site, but nothing like he has written this year. I must say that it’s been a pleasure seeing Shaman grow as a writer, no, better yet, an artist. Instead of writing about what was currently going on in wrestling, he opened up his imagination and wrote some of the most original, extremely creative, and often hilarious things I have ever read in the IWC. On my old site he used to be hit or miss with his comedy, but on this site, Shaman’s Harvest did nothing but write hit after hit after hit.

I remember him having a hard time coming up with a topic for his first column, so I jokingly told him to write about why Mae Young’s vagina could get wet anymore due to her age. A few days later, I opened up my inbox and there was a column on Mae Young. When I read it I couldn’t stop laughing. I posted “What’s Going On With That Body? The Mae Young Edition” on May 6, 2011 and ever since then Shaman has stepped it up big time. One of my favorite Shaman’s Harvest posts was “Diary Of A Reject: Chapter 1: I am Handrew Henry” where he wrote a tragic tale of Mae Young’s and Mark Henry’s bastard hand child. It wasn’t like anything you would ever read on any wrestling site and that’s what I needed to help me set this blog apart from all the cookie cutter sites that keep popping up on a daily basis.

Reading and editing Shaman’s work also made me step the fuck up and write some crazy shit my damn self, not that I needed to step up because in my mind I’m the fucking best at what I do, but I digress. Shaman went on to strike gold in the form of “Exclusive Interviews” where he would “interview” random wrestling personalities. Those columns ended up being one of my favorite features on the site. It was pure genius. Shaman had finally found a niche he could exploit and damn was he fucking good at it. Shaman’s writing this year was top-notch, outside of the box, and had no boundaries. The True Story of Alberto Del Rio was also a classic. Everything he touched was fucking gold and that’s why Shaman’s Harvest is THE INFAMOUS CREW™ Writer Of The Year…  but that’s only because I couldn’t give this prestigious honor to myself.

And this concludes the “Best and Worse of 2011” series. For those keeping score at home that was 15 blog posts and over 6,000 words in only 4 days and that’s not counting everything else I’ve posted or edited this week. The last two weeks have definitely been a resurrection of sorts and I’ve had fun putting these blogs together for your viewing pleasure. Just remember that I do it for all of you so thanks for reading and have a Happy New Year!

    I don’t think I will be doing any more writing until 2012. Thanks to everyone that has tried their best to follow all of these post in the last couple of days. To those just stopping by, I hope there’s more than enough new content for you to go through and read if you want. I feel like I ended the year on a strong note and I can’t wait to see what the new year has in store.

  2. December 30, 2011 at 9:48 pm

    Congrats on a great year JCITY dude! And congats to the broseph Shaman on the award! Ahahahaha!

    • December 30, 2011 at 10:09 pm

      Thanks for the support. I have no idea what 2012 has in store but it should be an interesting ride. I’ll try not to get arrested this time. Can’t make any promises though, lol.

    • December 31, 2011 at 6:05 pm

      You would have gotten it for commentator of the year for sure.

      • December 31, 2011 at 9:15 pm

    I 100% agree with this winner. I have writing experience (5 years writing for a newspaper, 1 year writing for a high school website, currently working as an internet copy writer) and knowledge but Shaman has a gift that can not be acquired through school or experience. The stuff Shaman thinks of is amazing. I’d like to think I have a creative mind too but Shaman’s creative mind is stronger than me. His column success rate this year was great. If you decide to do Column of the Year, I would like to nominate the Alberto Del Rio True Story column. That was so amazing. What is even more amazing is that Shaman had just recently wrote the R-Truth interview which I thought was his best interview. I thought there was no way Shaman could write something better than the R-Truth interview, and then he writes the ADR story just 8 days later.

    Congrats Shaman…no arguments from me…this was the right choice.

    • Capt. Smooth
      December 31, 2011 at 12:08 pm

      Shaman’s a good idea man.

  8. December 31, 2011 at 11:41 am

    Good to see Ray The Egg Scrambler is back, haha.

    Congratulations Shaman, you’re a great writer and thanks to JCITY for my honourable mention.

    Shaman’s writing actually got one of the highest viewed columns on my site and has only written once! He is very creative with writing with his creativity and imagination, truth be told…I actually wrote a school column on a different topic like Shaman’s interview pieces. It got great praise and I meant to thank him for that, so thanks for inspiration.

    There is a strong community going here and I’m loving it! Happy new year INFAMOUS JCITY CREW!

    • December 31, 2011 at 11:59 am

      haha…I thought that was you!

      • December 31, 2011 at 6:11 pm

        Maybe I should change the INFAMOUS CREW to the INFAMOUS Wrestling Community as a play off IWC. I’ll wait for the site gets a big bigger before I do such an egotistical thing though 🙂

    Pretty cool of you to give all the writers props and naming Shaman writer of the year. I liked all of his stuff. It was funny and different and the best part of the interviews to me was how Shaman would always end up getting hurt or the time he got raped. Tony Kegger has good stuff too but at the end of the day my favorite writer here is The Infamous JCITY. I really think this site should be more popular because when everyone is on their a game this site is just as good if not better than most in the mainstream.

    • December 31, 2011 at 6:16 pm

      At least one person things I’m the greatest, lol. Believe it or not, I’m happy not being mainstream. This way is better because it’s more intimate and I have the chance to get to chat with everyone and get a feel for what works and what doesn’t. It’s more of a tight nit community and while I would love mainstream hits, I can’t complain if I only gain one fan a day. It’s not my loss if the IWC doesn’t want to give me a chance, they are the ones missing out on some great stuff because they hate me for things I did and have said in the past. Maybe if I bite my tongue and kiss some ass… Naw, fuck that shit.

      • December 31, 2011 at 9:16 pm

        This site is definitely the ECW of wrestling sites. It’s a great comparison.

        • Capt. Smooth
          December 31, 2011 at 10:29 pm

          Who are each of us in relation to ECW?

          • January 1, 2012 at 2:36 am

            Since my name is Tony Kegger, does that make me The Sandman?

            • Capt. Smooth
              January 1, 2012 at 10:19 am

              Makes sense. That’s one down.

              • January 1, 2012 at 8:49 pm

                I would be Raven and that makes Tony Kegger Stevie Richards and Shaman’s Harvest The Blue Meanie,lol. Capt. Smooth is one of those guys that always sits in the front row. Either the skinny hippie guy with sunglasses or the fat guy with the cowboy hat.

                Or I can be RVD. I smoke enough weed to fit the criteria.

                  A super fan? I can dig it. Although, I could be many for different reasons.

                  Foley-body type

                  Funk-the “old” guy

                  Dreamer-a “good” guy

                  Joel Gertner- a filthy mind

                  and

                  New Jack-because I’m straight up gangsta

                  • January 2, 2012 at 12:10 am

                    Tommy Dreamer works for you, so does Mickey Whipwreck or Spike Dudley, lol.

  10. December 31, 2011 at 6:22 pm

    Aight, I got some serious partying to do tonight. Hope you all bring in the new year in style and if not, then hey, fuck it all. It’s just a commercialized holiday used to generate money in alcohol sales anyways. Happy New Years everyone. I will see y’all in 2012.

              Rub Close Up toothpaste on your junk and you won’t suffer any effects from a hangover, but you’ll burn down there. It was a prank we played on somebody in highschool. Told them to use it to whackoff.

        I don’t think that’s really him. He erased all wrestling related stuff from his site too. Hmmm…

  12. January 1, 2012 at 7:02 am

    Tony – It’s not actually me as the egg scrambler lol

    JCITY – I would consider this a community…it’s as big as it’s going to get IMO, to get bigger you’d probably have to do reports and news stories and shit which there is enough of those sites already.

    You got a great thing going here, it’s a great place to write what you want without worrying about cursing and shit. Keep it up JCITY!

      • January 1, 2012 at 8:53 pm

        It will get bigger. Slowly… but surely. This was a year of growth for sure. I didn’t have as many writers or commentators this time last year.

    January 1, 2012 at 11:10 am

    At best, you are a bunch of talentless hacks. You are not the ECW of the IWC, you are the shitty Indie promotion with no stars or potential. LT was the writer of the year as far as I am concerned since his comments were closer to reality than jcitys rumbaed mindless ramblings and Sherman’s shitty hand fairy tales. City you are a phony, you are really some fat bitch named meek3rs fuck off and die already.

    • January 1, 2012 at 7:20 pm

            Lol, I was going to respond negatively, but his comments are ridiculous and hold no weight. Just LT being LT, trying his best to once again be sent to the spam folder.

            LT, I dissed you in 2010, get over it. It’s over. Take your L like a man.

    WTF I’m the best writer of the year, 4 albums in 2011. LOL Shaman you did your thing though. I’ve read the majority of the blogs this year and I’d have to agree with City. Next year I’m coming for the title buddy. My gift to you, an exclusive free download of the album featuring We See You (John Cena DIss) Incognito. Happy new year mothafuckas.

    http://hotfile.com/dl/139433880/bd52a1f/TKO_presents_Incognito_2011.zip.html

    Btw, what’s with these trolls? I mean if you hate the site so much, why are you on here? Ridic, someone explain this to me. If I was a hater I’d just keep it moving. You gota be a real cock suckin ass prick to post as “Jcity is a” and shit on a buncha people like you special. Go watch Troll Hunter and feel at home, boi

    • January 2, 2012 at 12:16 am

      Nice!

      As for trolls, I guess my nuts is made of velcro cuz that specific troll has been hanging on my sack for about 2 years now. It’s funny though. His little retarded comments ain’t gonna hurt me so whatever.

    I honestly don’t mind trolls…they are just pathetic and funny…there not as good as they used to be, few years back trolls would actually insult you personally.

    • January 9, 2012 at 12:06 am

      A good troll does not need to attack personally. That’s cheap tactics used by people with low intelligence. A good troll will take everything you say and use it against you.

  17. January 8, 2012 at 4:07 am

    For the record, I’m still around, lurking in the shadows. Lol
