Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , on October 21, 2017 by getbent57

Just a reminder just in case anyone might have forgotten.  Season eight of The Walking Dead starts this Sunday, October 22, 2017.  It will be the shows 100th episode.  So you just know they are going to be doing something really big.  We pretty much know that there will be a huge battle between the groups.  All so think just like that past seasons.  It will be broken up into two parts.  Of eight episodes each.

The documentary, Long Time Running.  Which is about The Tragically Hip.  Following Gord Downie and the rest of the band as they go on their last tour together.  Airs tonight (October 20, 2017) on CTV.  It mine time zone it starts at 9pm.  The documentary is ninety five minutes long.  This is a pretty big deal because CTV is going to air the whole thing without any commercial breaks.  I hope they put in on their website the next day in case some people miss it out only seen bits of it.  You can see the trailer for the documentary > here.

The_Tragically_Hip_In_Violet_LightThis weeks musical throwback Thursday was an easy pick.  The lead singer of The Tragically Hip, Gord Downie has died.  He was battling brain cancer for a few years.  So this weeks song is my second favorite.  Shared my favorite one, Ahead by a Century, a few years ago.  This song is called The Darkest One.  Which is off their 2002 album In Violet Light.  Not only is the song awesome.  The music video is pretty awesome as well.  It features the Trailer Park Boys and Don Cherry.  You can see the video > here or below.

Assassin’s Creed Origins

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , on October 18, 2017 by getbent57

It is about a week and a half to go before Assassin’s Creed Origins is out.  If you have stopped by this blog you will know I am a big fan of these games.  Will be buying this day one.  They didn’t put on one of these  games last year.  Which can be a good thing.  Because it would have gave them more time to work on this one.  The past few games had some problems.  So, in theory this one shouldn’t have too many.  Being a huge open world game there are bound to be some kind of problems.  That being said.  Pretty much every new game now a days has patched and fixes.  Which are out day one to weeks and months later.  I could be wrong. Many be the game will work great from day one.  Will find out soon.  It will be out October 27, 2017.

Batman_The_Animated_SeriesHave some interesting news if you are a Batman fan.  More importantly a fan of the TV show, Batman: The Animated Series.  I love this show.  It used to air right after the afternoon news.  Back when we only had two channels to watch.  It was a staple for years. Ever time there was no school.  We would sit and watch.  This year marks the 25th anniversary of the show.  At this years New York Comic Con they announced that the series will be remastered  Blu-ray.  There is no date or price set yet.  When there is.  Will be blogging about it.

JUSTICE_LEAGUE_MovieThere is a new trailer out for the Justice League movie.   They are calling this the Official Heroes trailer.  This will be the fifth in the DC shared universe movies.  Each one there was been a lot of negative things said about them.  Well not so much for Wonder Woman.  Have seen them all and they are know were as bad as some on the internet claim.  Like the others there has been lots of talk about Justice League.  For myself I think it will be pretty awesome.  Even more so after watching the newest trailer.  Which you can see for yourself > here or below.  It will be out in theatres November 17, 2017.  Looking forward to watching this

Bob’s Burgers Movie

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , on October 14, 2017 by getbent57

A few days back read that Bob’s Burgers will be getting a movie.  Am a huge fan of this show.  So seen it on the big screen like they did with The Simpsons movie.  Which is hard to believe that was out ten years ago.  The only downside is well have a long wait.  It is not set to be out until 2020.  From the article > here the movie is set,“ to take our characters on an epic adventure.”  Will get keeping on eye on this.  If I read anything new about this.  Most definitely will be blogging about it.

PlayStation Store Flash Sale October 2017

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 13, 2017 by getbent57

Most of the time there is a flash sale going in the PlayStation Store near the end of a month.  Well not this time.  It is only the second week in.  I am guessing it is because it’s Friday the 13th.  People make a big deal out of this date every time it comes around.  There seems to be a wide variety of games to choose from.  You can see it for yourself > here.  Then sale ends October 16, 2017.

The Traveling Wilburys – End Of The Line

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 12, 2017 by getbent57

The_Traveling_Wilburys_End_Of_The_LineMusical throwback Thursday once again.  This weeks song was a bit of an easy pick.  Since another member of The Traveling Wiburys has recently died,  Tom Petty.  I can remember this song, End of The Line being played on TV all the time back in the late 80’s.  Not only because it was good.  But because it was a pretty big deal that five very famous musicians came together to make what people call a supergroup.  They put out two albums.  This is off their first called, Traveling Wiburys Vol. 1, released in October 1988.  You can give it watch/ listen > here or below.
