Avicii – Wake Me Up

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 31, 2013 by getbent57

Avicii_Wake_Me_Up_Official_Single_CoverHave found my new favourite song.  It is called Wake Me Up from Avicii.  He is a very famous Swedish DJ but may be not around here.  It is most famous for his song Levels.  Which was mixed in with Flo Rida’s song Good Feeling.  Have to say Wake Me Up is the best song I have heard in a very long time.  I has the right mix of awesome vocals which have this classic feel to them with the mix of high energy.  While the official video is very good.  I like the lyric video much better.  You see that > here or below.  This song will be on his up coming album True set to come out September 13, 2013.  If you are going to give it a listen I recommend putting on a pair of headphones.

The Top Gear Story Book Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , on August 30, 2013 by getbent57

TheTopGearStoryBorrowed a copy of the book The Top Gear Story:  The 100% Unofficial Story of the Most Famous Car Show…In the World.   As you may know I am a huge Top Gear fan.  So when I saw this book I had to read it.  While it was interesting because some of the background about the show I never knew.  Then there was the rest of the book was more of a rehash of the show.  In many chapters in the book the writer would talk about segments from the show and just describe what happen in the segment.  Like myself any one  reading this book would be a fan of the show there for all ready knows what happened in each episode.  The rest of the information is pretty much public knowledge.  Because the write use TV interviews and new paper articles/interviews.  Mind you never seen or read this since I don’t live in the UK.  So it was new info for me.   Over all it was a bit of a let down.  Was hoping there would be some real cool stuff to read that know one else knows about.  Some behind the scenes of the show would have been so great.

Over all this book was a bit of a let down.  While there was some information I never knew about.  All the info in this book either straight from the show itself or other peoples interviews.  Thinking I had my hopes were too high about this book.   Guess I will have to wait for some day when there is an official book.  Don’t waste you money buying this book.  Unless you can get it cheap or borrow it like I did.

Twisted Metal 2

Twisted_Metal_2Played some Twisted Metal 2 the other day.  Have not played this game in a very long time.  This game came out back on the Playstation is 1996.  This was one of the first game my brother bought when he first got his Playstation.  We played the hell out of the game.  It was very fun.  When I started playing it again I remembered just how hard it is.  Then remember while we used to cheat while playing single player.  One other thing I remembered was how to shoot the freezing special.  Of course the game is very dated now and the controls are not that great.  But think when I get back into the groove it will be just like the old days.

NecessaryEvilSuper-VillainsOfDCComics.jpgThere is a new preview or what they are calling it on YouTube an exclusive extra scene.  For the up coming documentary Necessary Evil: Super-Villains of DC Comics.  This clip is called Left for Dead.  It talks about Red Hood (the Jason Todd version) .  How a hero can become bad and if he can get redemption.  While they are talking there are clips from my favourite DC Universe Animated movie Batman: Under the Red Hood.  Think this upcoming documentary will be pretty awesome.  It set to come out October 25, 2013.

Clarkson – Shoot-Out

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , on August 23, 2013 by getbent57

Clarkson-ShootoutHave watched another one of Jeremy Clarkson’s DVD’s I have found on YouTube.  This time around it a bit new.  Realised in 2003 is  called Clarkson – Shootout.   It has Clarkson deciding which of 30 cars is the best of the year.   Like all the show/DVD’s he makes they are just fun to watch.  Not just because the the cool cars but just how funny he can be.  For being 10 years old the cars still don’t look that dated.  Not sure what one I will check out next in the mean time be sure to check this one out > here or below.

The Place Beyond The Pines Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , on August 22, 2013 by getbent57

ThePlaceBeyondThePinesHave wanted to see The Place Beyond the Pines for a little while now.  When I first seen a trailer it caught my eye because there was a motorcycle in it.  Then I read the guy robs banks using a motorcycle to get away.  Was going into this movie not knowing what to expect.  That is a good way to see a movie.  This movie takes place over about 17 years.  With three main storylines that weave together.  The plot is easy to follow.  The movie is long, well over two hours.  While the story is interesting with one very cool twist in the middle.  It does get bog down.  Very slow placed.  Was a bit board watching this.  Then something would happen, then I would want to know what happens next.

This a very well made movie with an interesting story.  It just not for very one.  If you are looking for a well acted and put together then you are in luck.  If you seen the trailer like myself thing there would be a lot of action stuff.  Your not so lucky.  The motorcycle stunts are cool and realistic.  But that is only one small part.  This is a strong rent.
