GymkhanaFive.jpgBack in July Ken Block’s and crew put of Gymkhana Five video.  A few days ago they put of the making of video > here and below.  Really enjoy these videos so it was nice to see how one is made.  Why they don’t go into too much detail how they do it.  But it takes a lot of people and gear.  From this video it was shot over four days.  They used all kinds of cool looking cameras.  Pretty sure they will be a new Gymkhana video out some time next year.  For now just watch the old ones.  My favourite is still Gymkhana Thee.

Game of Thrones Season Three News

GameOfThronesSeasonThree.jpgHave some good news to share about season three of Game of Thrones.  The news is that each episode will be long than the last to seasons.  Form the article > here,

“There’s almost another full episode’s worth of extra minutes spread across the season,” Weiss says. “One of the great liberties with HBO is we’re not forced to come in at a specific time. We can’t be under 50 minutes or over 60, but that gives us a lot of flexibility.”

This is very good news.  It means will be get more awesome TV.  Love this show.  Remember that season three starts March 31, 2013 and season two will be out on DVD/Blu-ray February 19, 2013.  I will be picking up a copy of the Blu-ray for sure.

Survivor: Philippines Winner

SurvivorPhilippines.jpgOne of the two people that I wanted to win Survivor: Philippines won.  That person is Denise.  Most times the final tribal council is can be a big crazy.  The person who I thought would cause the most trouble, Abi was pretty laid back about the whole thing.  It surprised me who laid into the final three.  That was Jonathan.  It was all fired up but all so pretty funny at the same time.   For the first time I missed the reunion show.  Had to be up early the next morning.  So I had to miss it.  By the time Survivor and the reunion show were it would have been 1am.  It has bad enough I was up to 12pm.  Had to get up for work at 5:30am.  Was pretty tired at work today.  But it was worth it to see who won.

bikertv.jpgEpisode 79 of Biker TV which aired today (December 16, 2012) had a segment about this years Cape Breton Bikefest.  It showed some of Storm the Fort and the wedding that took place there.  It was nice to see some stuff from the Bikefest.  If you have never seen the show before.  It not all the great.  It has a low rent tv news feel.   But hay it is a motorcycle show that is on tv.   They recently started putting their shows on YouTube > Here.  The show is below.  The Bikefest segment starts at the 16min 17sec mark.

SeanQuigley.jpgI used to hate the song Little Drummer Boy.  Except for one version, the Boney M version.  They have one of my all time favourite Christmas albums.  Then a few years ago I heard/seen another great version by  Celtic  Woman.  In the video which is below.  Has the coolest intros I have very seen.  Next is the version that was put out last year with a bit of a rock talk on it by Sean Quigley.  It is all the same song just with different takes on it.  They are all great.  So pick the one you like the best.

Christmas Specials

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , on December 14, 2012 by getbent57

christmas-tree.pngEvery year I try and watch as many Christmas specials/TV shows as possible.  I work in retail which can suck the fun right out the the holidays.  So watch many Christmas specials kinds of makes it easier to enjoy this time of year.   There are certain ones I just have to watch no matter what.  The first being A Christmas Story, A Muppet Family Christmas and then Home Alone.  Have not watched Home Alone yet this year planning to this weekend.  Did watch the other two all ready.  All so watched some other as well that are good.  There will be all kinds on TV this coming week since there is little more than a week left till the big day.

Survivor: Philippines

SurvivorPhilippines.jpgWith just then one episode/finale of Survivor: Philippines airing this coming Sunday (December 16, 2012).  They are down to four people.  Was so happy when Abi-Maria got the boot.  I know she will cause all kinds of trouble in the jury and the last tribal council.  I would like either Malcolm or Denise to win.  The other two, Michael and Lisa are not bad.   Just like the first two better.  I guess we will find out this coming Sunday.  Over all this has been a very good season.  Nothing stands out of a big shock.  The only thing I can think of is how much Abi was/is a b*tch.

Man of Steel Trailer

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , on December 12, 2012 by getbent57

ManOfSteel.jpgA real trailer for Man of Steel was put out yesterday (December 11, 2012).  It looks very awesome.  For the first time a Superman movie might be good.  Superman is not my favourite super hero.  I am more of a Batman fan, if you haven’t guessed.  The new Superman movie is being written by the same guys the wrote the Dark Knight movies, David S. Goyer and Christopher Nolan.   Nolan is all so a producer.  It is being directed by Zack Snyder.  He has made some movies in the past that I really like.  On favourite being Watchmen.   It set to come out June 14, 2013.  Think I will be going to see this one.  Check out the trailer.

Assassin’s Creed 3 Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , on December 11, 2012 by getbent57

AssassinsCreed3.jpgFinished the main story online in Assassin’s Creed 3 last night.  Took my time playing thought this game.  There was days that I didn’t at all so that my review might seem late.   Going to start off saying this game is great but not my favourite.  Thought when I first started to play it would be come my fav but not so.   There are many awesome things in there with lots to do.  But it is missing the feeling that the other game had.  The made changes some for the good and others the bad.  The movement is easier but still give you trouble at times.   There is the combat which I find after hours of game play not the fun.   Become very frustrated lot in this game.  That’s what I take away most are the missions in the game.  They are good but can be very frustrating in spots.  Either because of the controls or the combat.  That might just be me.  Could not figure out the right time in the combat with taking in a group of bad guys.

Over all this is a top notch game.  Has lots too do and look at.  The missions are a lot more varied this time around.  The game with you wanting more of the story.   With all the good in there, there are some bad.  When running some time you will go where you don’t want to.  The combat can be frustrating then taking on big groups.  Because if your timing is off you get shot by the guys out of range.   How ever will go back and try to finish the side missions.   Did have fun playing this game but just not as much has I had playing Brotherhood.  Pretty sure there will a new game next year.  Can’t give it a full score because I got pissed off too much playing in spots.
