amazon I bought my first stuff online from  Well I order it last week on (Sept 23,08) and I got it last night (Sept 29,08).  I have to say that was really fast shipping.  The estimated time to arrive was Oct 1.  I am really pleased.  I bought The Race to Dakar book and DVD.  So far I watched the first disk.  It’s great.  I have the Long Way Round book and DVD.  Also so have The Long Way Down book.  So now I only have to get is the DVD.  The NTSC version is not out until Oct 28, 08.  I’ll have to buy more stuff from Amazon.

Stock Car Races September 27-08

Here are some pictures from the stock races at Island Speedway September 27, 2008.  I posted the demo derby video yesterday.  It was the last racers of the year so they had a bunch a extra races.  It was getting dark and they could not get the lights on so they decided to get ready for the demo derby.  How ever the lights came on so they had 4 or 5 more races before the demo derby.   There was only one big accident.  One car hit the wall really hard and went a little air bone.  When that happed his front tire came off.

The Foot Fist Way Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , on September 26, 2008 by getbent57

I had to check out The Foot Fist Way after seen it on Attack Of The Show.  This is a pretty funny movie.  Lots of little things that make it funny.  Some of that the characters do say is pretty off the way.  It is a story about a over the top Taekwondo instructor that takes it way to serious.  This go down hill when his marriage goes bad.

This movie is not for very one.  Has a good low budget feel to it.  Lots of crazy characters.  Give it a rent.

Survivor_Gabon_Official_Logo The new Survivor, Survivor: Gabon starts tonight.  This season is looking good.  For the first time it will be shot in HD.  You can watch the first 3 minutes on the CBS website in HD.  How ever it will not work for me.  My guess is because I am in Canada.  But there is hope has the clip plus a few others. You can watch them here.

widow_of_saint_pierre Years ago I was an extra on a TV show called Pit Pony.  You can see a clip of me on that show here.  That lead to me being an extra on a movie called The Widow of Saint-Pierre.  If you can guess from the title of the movie it is french.   I have never seen the movie.  I would like to, just to see if I can see myself.  I did a youtube search and found the trailer.  I all so found a different one on the net. You can see that one here.  Its a better trailer but wordpress will not let me embed it.  So here is the youtube one embedded.

I was watching some TV this morning and heard this loud bang.  It sound like something heavy fell on the floor.  I went to investigate, the only thing on the floor was a small picture that fell off the wall.  I was like, know way that made that much noise.  May be something hit the house.  I looked out the window and see a bird flying around.  They it falls on its back and starts twitching.  That last a few seconds.  Then nothing.  I was like “he dead”.  I grabbed my camera.  The partridge hit the house so hard that it broke the siding and kill himself.  Not sure why the partridge was there and why it flew into the house.  My best guesses it that he was stupid or suicidal.
