GameOfThronesAGuideToWesterosPuzzle.jpgThinking very hard about buying the Game of Thrones: A Guide to Westeros Puzzle.  Buy myself some thing cool every year for a Christmas gift.  The only trouble is I have only found one listing for Canada and the rest come from the States.  The Canadian listing is on but not from them but from a user that uses there online storefront.  They are asking (as of November 26, 2013) $74.95.   Over at they are selling it for $59.55 US.  Then he HBO Store wants $59.99 again in US money.  Going to look into the to see how much shipping and the exchange rate/tax will come too.  Just to see if it will be cheaper than the guy on  Will be back with an update if I decided to buy one.

TheSnowman.jpgNow that we are less than a month away from Christmas I like to watch movies and specials.  One old one I have not seen in a very long time is The Snowman from 1982.  This one is most famous for the song Walking In The Air.  This show doesn’t have any talking it is more about the animation and music  setting the mood.  There is something very special with the snowman and the kid start to run then take off.  That song kicks in.  A classic for sure.  There are lots of version on YouTube but I like this one the most > here or below.

KickAss.jpgThe Blu-ray and DVD of Kick-Ass 2 will be out December 17, 2013.  Haven’t see it yet and cant wait too.  But here to talk about the first one, Kick-Ass.  The other day I was at Wal-mart looking though the cheap DVD bin and seen this movie for $5.00.   So I bought.  Seen this back first back in 2010 and remember liking it.  There is some great stuff in here but the best part is Big Daddy (played by Nicolas Cage) takes on the bad guys in a warehouse.  It pretty awesome.  He is like a Batman that kills.  If you haven’t see this movie it is well worth check in out.

Twin_Shadow_Old_Love_New_LoveHave another song from Grand Theft Auto V’s soundtrack.  This time the song is from the radio station Radio Mirror Park.  The song is Old Love/New Love by DJ Twin Shadow.  He all so host the some radio station the song it on.  After listen to the song on YouTube it seemed a bit different.  But I guess when I am playing the game the song are blended together.  Over all the song is very good.  If it wasn’t I wouldn’t be talking about.

GameOfThronesPuzzleHave never been it to puzzles but think I am will to change my mind after see things one.  The Game of Thrones: Guide to Westeros.  What is cool about this puzzle is that it is multi-layered.  Three layers make up this puzzle.  The first layer is a 1000 piece jigsaw.  Layer two is an artistic 200 pieces.  Then the third layer adds 3D miniatures off all the famous landmarks.  It is made by the people at 4D City Scape.  They make some pretty awesome 3D puzzles.  Am thinking about buying one.  That is if I can find one.  Will just have to look around online.  Check out the video of it > here or below.

Darius Rucker-WagonWheelHave a great song stuck in my head.  It is Wagon Wheel by Darius Rucker.   A few seconds into watching the video I recognized the guys face.  It is the lead singer of Hootie & The Blowfish.  His newest album is called True Believers.  Turns out this is his third country album.  I had know idea he was on country artiest now.  Well that is because I am not a big country music fan.  But every now again there is a song that gets my attention.  After looking into this song it turns out it is a cover song.   That is ok because the song is really good.  Sticks in your head but in a good way.  Take a look/listen > here or below.

NotTheNineO'ClockNews-ILikeTruckingThink the internet is a funny crazy place.  At one moment you are looking at some interesting which leads to looking some totally different that is comedy gold.  This is how I ended up seeing I Like Trucking from the old BBC TV show Not the Nine O’clock News.  Have heard of this show because Rowan Atkinson was in it.  Ok, back on track.  I was watching one episode of shows, Random Encounter.   In this show they play a random game.  Most times they are pretty bad games.  The show is funny as the guys react to how bad the games are.  The episode I was watching they were playing Transport Simulator.  During one point one of the guys asked what is your favourite trucking song.  They the other guy starts singing I Like Trucking.   How know idea what that was.  Until I scrolled down into the comments.  Where someone posted the video > here or below.  It is very old but still funny stuff.
