15009470 Today’s Lesson, kids read the expiry date on medication. I hurt my back last night somehow. When I got up this morning it was hard to move. I still had to go to work, so I took some back pain pills with me. So at lunch time I popped then. About 10 minutes later I my back still hurt, but now I was dissy as hell. I am usually I am sure footed as a mountain goat. LOL. I all most later fell over. Moral of the story read the expiry date on your medication.

819261451_501bb25a29 Saw this video on youtube of Japanese motorcycle rodeo. These guys got some mad skills. This cannot be easy with such a big bike. My hat goes off to any one that can do this. When I was getting my motorcycle licence one of the instructors said any idiot can go fast in a straight line. It takes skill to go slow.

Kyle XY Season Two Review

Posted in Review's with tags , on March 18, 2008 by getbent57

kyle_xy.jpgKyle XY season two ended last night. Well part two of season two. The first 13 episodes air in the summer of 2007. And the the last 10 started airing in January. This is show is fun to watch. I know its a teen drama but with a bit of x-files throw in. With the second season they didn’t focus as much on the teen drama, mind you there is some but not like other shows. Which is a good thing. The thing I like about this show is they answers the question they raise. They don’t leave you hanging too long. Then they ask all new question. Each show gets better and better. Of course the last show of the season is left with a cliff hanger. I can’t wait to see more. I hope they start airing season three this summer. If you are interested to learn more here are some good resources. imdb.com wikipedia.org

Superbad Review

Posted in Review's with tags on March 16, 2008 by getbent57

superbad-bigposter I had a bunch of people asked it I have seen Superbad. When I say no, they say you have to check it out saying you will laugh all the way though. Well they were wrong. It is just another teen, get dunk, sex comedy. Boo. This type of movies drive me nuts. They use the same jokes over and over again. Hearing fuck ever second word is not funny. The only time I had a small chuckle was with the physical comedy. I know people will disagree, but avoid this movie. There are so may other FUNNY comedies out here.

grand-theft-auto-iv-20071128012032646-000 I was browsing though the message boards at gamespot.com. A Spanish game magazine has info on GTA IV multiplayer. Someone translated it and posted it. I hope it is true about the multiplayer because it sounds freaking awesome. Here is the info. Source.

Long Way Round Book Review

Posted in Review's with tags on March 13, 2008 by getbent57

0751536806 I seen the DVD of Long Way Round before for I read the book. The DVD is awesome and the book is just as awesome. The first of the book give some great back ground on Charley Boorman and Ewan McGregor. With the DVD they can only show you so much, but with the book you get more detail on how things real went down. For example when happened when they crossed the border in to the US. I don’t want to give any thing away, but its quite interesting. This is a great read. Ever one should check it out.

picnicface-sm.thumbnail I first hear of Picnicface awhile back, when they showed there famous Powerthirst video on Attack of the show. That’s when I found out they are from Halifax. They have a bunch of other funny (warring not for kids or sensitive people) videos on youtube.
