JohnPinette-ISayNayNayA few days back seen a list of stand-up comedians with links to video of their comedy routines.  Seen the name John Pinnette and his picture.  Have seen him on TV before when he was on Just For Laughs.  He was very funny.  On this list > here they have three links to his shows.  So decided to start with the first on I Say Nay Nay.  After watching, this must see show.  Which you can see > here or below.  Decided I should write about his for my blog.  Looking up info on him to find out he had died.  I did not know this.  He died April 5, 2014.  So it is nice to see that you can still watch just how funny he really was on YouTube.  It is well worth you time checking out.

Matthew_Good_WeaponIt is time again for musical throwback Thursday.  This week I picked Weapon by Matthew Good.   The song is off his first solo album called Avalanche.  The song has one of the best videos ever made.  All so the song is really good.  From the every start with him just signing is pretty powerful.  Give this 2002 classic a listen > here or below.

Agents_of_SHIELDThis fall TV line is looking pretty awesome.  With all the new comic book to TV shows coming out.  All so the other coming back for another season.  Looking forward to see what Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.LD. season two will bring to the table.  Think this season will be bigger and better.  Last season they had to work events from the Marvel’s movies into the show.  Not sure if they will have to do that this time around.  Think it would better if they could go there own way.  Than have events from the show worked into the movies.  Time will tell.  Season two starts September 23, 2014.  Oh there is a bit of a teaser out.  You can see that > here or below.

Call of Duty: Ghosts

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , on September 16, 2014 by getbent57

CallOfDutyGhosts.jpgHave owned Call of Duty: Ghosts for my PS4 well over a week.  However didn’t get around to trying on till today.  Have not played a Call of Duty game (except multiplayer at a friends house) since I bought Call of Duty: Black Ops.   Played about the first six to seven story missions.  The game looks nice.  The controls are nice and smooth.  It is the gameplay is all ways the same in the story missions.  Go here, jump there, crawl here, use this special weapon there and take this special gear you can only use at certain points.  While that can be fun at times it just becomes boring after while.  The same thing over and over again.

These game are more about the multiplayer.  Have not yet played Ghosts online yet.  But I know what will happen.  I will get rolled over and over again.  Looked at some of the options in the online stuff.  There seems to be a lot more to modes to play.  All so the upgrading and unlocking looks like there is more depth.  Did try local multiplayer in a team deathmatch with some bots.  It is a good way to check out all the maps before going online.  Was were my PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset while playing against the bots.  Got shot from behind and it made me jump.  Because it really sounded like it was really behind me.  So far I am glad I didn’t pay full price for the game.  While it will be fun at points it will not have me playing for hours and hours.

GOTHAM.jpgIn little over a week the new TV show Gotham will premiere on September 22, 2014.  There are lots of articles and video on this show.  But have not read then because I want to be surprised.  There is going to be a lot a great comic book to TV shows this year.  Think this will be the best new ones.   Well I hope it is but you never know.  Will be back with a first episode review once it airs.

GTA-5-PS4.pngGood news everybody there is Grand Theft Auto V release date for the next-gen version.   Which is November 18, 2014 for PS4 and Xbox One.  Then in January 27, 2015 for PC.  Every thing will look a lot better.  With all kinds of new things added.  There will be new weapons, vehicles, activities and new wildlife.  There will all so be enhanced damage and weather effects.  If you are a fan of the radio sections there will be over a 100 new songs and mixes.  You can read all about the this > here.  They put out a trailer showing off some of these new things, which is called A Picket Fence and a Dog Named Skip.  Which you can see > here or below.

Not sure on the price yet.  Hope it will not be $70.  Which seems to be the new going price for PS4 games.  I will be buying this game again because It is my all time favourite game.  All so because you can bring over your GTA Online stuff.  Have put in about 134 hours into Online and have lots of stuff.  So not starting over from scratch is nice.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , on September 12, 2014 by getbent57

CaptainAmericaWinter SoldierI knew Captain America: The Winter Soldier would be good.  Because the Marvel movies have been on an excellent roll for a long time now.  Wasn’t prepared for it be better better than good.  It was awesome.  Has to be the most exciting movies I have ever seen in a while.  All the fights and car chases flowed nicely  and are more grounded (for a superhero movie).  Which made then fun to watch.  They didn’t hide the fights in the dark or with camera shake.

This is yet another Marvel movie well worth watching.  It is over two hours long and at no point did it drag or get boring.  A top notch superhero movie.  Even if you are not into the whole superhero/comic book thing this is still worth checking out.  It is one of the best action movies out today.
