Christmas Tree 2008

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , on November 30, 2008 by getbent57

Christmas_tree We put of the Christmas tree today.  We usually put the tree up the first Sunday in December.  Since December 1 is Monday, we put it up today.  This is a new tree this year.  The old tree was pretty old.  I forget how old it was, just know it was old.  The new one is taller and lot bushier.  I think it turned out really nice.

Monty Python On YouTube

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , on November 29, 2008 by getbent57

youtubefoot3 I heard about Monty Python having there own YouTube channel.  I don’t know much about Monty Python, just know they are very funny group.  The only movie I remember watching is The Holy Grail.  And that was funny as hell.  They have a few clips of that movie posted.  So I’ll share one of my favourite scenes.

Kung Fu Panda Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , on November 28, 2008 by getbent57

Kung_fu_panda Just finished watching Kung Fu Panda.  It was an all right movie.  The animation was top notch.  The detail is some of the best out there.  The fight scenes were over the top and fun to watch.  The big down side was the story.  It has been down so many times before.  I’ll break it down for you.  A character with no skills, who dreams of being a hero.  He wants it so bad, some thing happens and he gets his wish.  Know one believes in him.  Then one person does and then there is a training montage.  The hero now believes in himself.  Then he wins the big battle against the bad guy.  Now ever one loves him.  End of story.

Over all it is a rent.  The animation and fight scenes are top notch.  How ever the story has been done a million times before.

BranVan3000 On my way home from work today and heard a song I have not heard in a really long time.  It was Drinkin in LA by Bran Van 3000.   This song came out way back in 1997.  It still holds up after all this years.  I remember listing to this song a lot.  So I had to do a YouTube search to find the video.  So here it is.


*Side note this is my 300th post.  Woo whoo.

YouTube Widescreen

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , on November 26, 2008 by getbent57

YouTube It looks like has gone widescreen.  When I first saw it, I thought there was something wrong.  But after doing some “Googling”  I read that you can upload 16:9 aspect ratio video now.  Here is a link to there blog taking about the change.  Other websites have been widescreen for awhile now.  So I guess they had to follow suit.  There all so a rumour that YouTube will be being stream movies in the future that why it went widescreen.  Time will tell.

Batman: The Brave And The Bold

BatmanTheBrave I had know idea there was a new Batman animated show out called Batman: The Brave and the Bold.  I have not see the show since it is on the Cartoon Network, which I do not get.  How ever did looks at some websites and youtube.  From what info I have gathered each show Batman will team up with another hero to take down the bad guys.  It has a new style of animation but all so has this old school look to it.  I guess I will have to “find” away to check this show out.

WALL-E Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , on November 23, 2008 by getbent57

wall-e Just finished watching WALL-E.  This is one of the best animated movies ever.  Pixar did it again.  They know how to make great movies.  Like past Pixar movies it is aimed at kids but adults will get some much more out of it.  It is amazing there were able to show so much emotion out of the characters that really don’t speak.  There are so may funny parts.  I’ll try not to give any thing ways.  My favourite part is when the go to the “robot hospital”.  Very funny stuff.  I can’t say enough good stuff about this movie.  Go watch it now.

You have to check this movie out.  One of the best animated movies ever.  Funny as hell.

Long Way Down DVD Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , on November 22, 2008 by getbent57

LongWayDownDVD_ Finished watching the Long Way Down DVD’s last night.  Man it is great.  Just like the last one they made Long Way Around.  On the DVD’s you 10 episodes and a bunch of extras.  How ever most of the extras were on a youtube page.  I have the read the book and that was awesome too.  You can check out that review here.  What I like about this show and the others ones they did is that it is real.  There was no faking it to make it look good for TV.  What you see is what you get.  If you want more info check out the Wiki.

If you are into motorcycles or great TV documentaries it is a must buy.  All so check out the other shows they made.

grooveshark Saw this good website called Grooveshark featured on AOTS last night.   It is a website the allows you to listen to all kinds of streaming music for free.  You can sign up if you wish.  I have not yet.  But my guess you will get more options.  It is pretty easy to use.  You can set up a queue and just let the songs play.  This is site that you have to try and keep your eye on.
