new-year-fireworks.jpgWant to wish every one a Happy New Year.  2013 was another great year.  Looking forward to an even better 2014. This January will mark the start seventh year for this blog.  Am very impressed with myself being able to keep this going for six years and having a new post just about every day.   The key I found was to have about three to four post written and ready to go.  Once you post one of they, write a new one to replace it on the list.  For the most part this works every well.  So hear is to another great year.  Thank you to every one who has stop by and took a look at this blog.  Happy New Year.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Volume 6: City Fall Part 1 Review

tmnt_vol6_cityfallPartone.jpgOne of the Christmas gifts to myself was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Volume 6: City Fall Part 1.  I fell in love with this new re-launch that IDW did of  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles back in May.  After reading that one I went out and ordered the other four volumes.  Said to myself then the next one comes out I have to get it.  Then forgot all about it.  Then I was on took a look at my wish list and there it was volume six.  So I had to get it.

Like the five books that came before it this one is just as awesome.  These get better and better with each one.  The story has Casey Jones getting caught by the Foot.  The Turtles set out to get him back.  Things go bad.  Don’t want to spoil anything but they go really bad.  Being part one you know it will end with a cliff-hanger.  So looking to Part Two. Which will be out in February 18, 2014.

Johnny Reid – A Christmas Gift To You

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , on December 29, 2013 by getbent57

JohnnyReidAChrismtasGiftToYouThis past week there was a Johnny Reid Christmas special on TV.  I watched it and thought it was great.  So I had to check out the album in which the songs were from, A Christmas Gift To You.  After heard this album it is now my favourite Christmas CD.  If fact it might just replace Bony M’s CD.  Every song on this CD is prefect.  The one I like the most is Winter Star.  If you are looking for a gift for someone who is hard to shop for this is a good gift.

[Update]  Wrote this post days before Christmas.  So you might be done listening to Christmas music.  But keep this one in mind for next year.

Why We Ride Trailer

WhyWeRideHave just found out there is a cool new motorcycle documentary out called Why We Ride.  It has one of the coolest trailers ever.  Which you can see that > here or below.  What is cool about the documentary is they talk about all the kinds of motorcycles and their riders.  It doesn’t just focus on the standard big belly, big beard leather clad biker.   You can own a copy but its only for sale on American sites so far.  Will keep my eye on it because I want to give this a watch.

BatmanKnightfallVol1.jpgVery happy that my Christmas gift to myself, Batman: Knightfall series.   Was a bit surprised on just how big the books are.  Knew that each one was over six hundred pages long.  But didn’t realize just how big each one was.  You can see for yourself below.  Am very happy with   Ordered this on December 12, 2013 and they were in the post office on December 17.  Think that is the fastest I have ever gotten any thing.  Can’t wait to start reading these.  I am sure they will be awesome.

christmas-tree.pngI hope everyone had a fun and safe Christmas.   The sun came out here with blue skies.  This was the first year in may years that we had a real white Christmas.  The snow on the ground from the night before was light and fluffy.  So that was easy to move.  Had an awesome dinner with family.  The turkey was the best in years.  Think the best part of the day was when I seen a partridge in the neighbours yard.  Then got even better when there were six dear in the our yard.  Managed to get some really good pictures of them.  You can see those below.  So happy with the way they turned out.  Think I am going to send one off to be printed to hand on the wall.  Merry Boxing Day every one.

Rita MacNeil – Now The Bells Ring

Posted in Just something to say, Videos on December 23, 2013 by getbent57

NowTheBellsRing I think my all time favourite Christmas song is Now The Bells Ring by Rita MacNeil.  This is off album of the same name which was released 1988.  When I was kid this tape (not a CD) was all ways being played.  Weather it was putting up the tree, or the days before Christmas or Christmas itself.  All so just about every year there would be a Rita MacNeil Christmas special on TV.   I can remember one where there were flash back scenes from when she was a kid and this song played.  You can give it a listen > here or below.

Minecraft Demo

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 22, 2013 by getbent57

Minecraft.pngNow that Minecraft is out now for the PlayStation 3 I had to check it out.  Like I said in my other post talking about this game.  Heard lots of great things about this game but never got to try it.  Well I was in luck.  Went on the PSN to see how much it costs, $19.99.  Turns out there is a demo available to try.  Has to be one of the smallest file size game out there, about 86 MBs.  After going part way thought the tutorial I can see why this game is a huge hit.  The game is all about colleting, crafting and building.  It can be very simple and complex at the same time.  I can see myself buying this at some point.  If you are like myself and never tried this game.  Go and give it a shot.  It’s well worth it.
