Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , on December 17, 2017 by getbent57

Don’t forget that A Christmas Story Live special airs tonight, December 17, 2017.  Still not sure how I feel about his yet.  The movie is my all time favourite.  Then again this might be fine.  Will find out.  Plan to watch.  Just not sure yet what time it airs.  Just hope its not too late in my time zone.

[Update] It airs 8pm in my time zone.  While looking a the info the the box it says its three hours long.  My guess there will be may be an hour and half of show.  The rest will be lots of commercials.  As the cast move to different sets and change costumes.


A Garfield Christmas Special

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , on December 16, 2017 by getbent57

There are a handful of specials I like to watch every year.  One is A Garfield Christmas Special.  It hard to believe that this is thirty  years old.  While some of the animation is a bit dated now.  It is still funny.  There is one spot where they are driving to the farm house.  Where Jon is talking about the fresh smelling air.  Then Garfield says, that’s not what I smell, cracks me up very time.  If you want to give this classic a watch.  You can do so > here or below.

GTA Online: Treasure Hunt

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 15, 2017 by getbent57

GTA_Online_Treasure_HuntThere is a cool new event going on in Grand Theft Auto Online.  It is petty much a treasure hunt.  The prize is a special double action revolver.  How it works, you receive an email (in game) with a picture of one of twenty locations.  Once you get the location.  You have to find a piece of paper.  Once you look at that.  It give you three more locations to investigate.  Once you do that, it unlocks the revolver.  But there is more to it.  This unlocks a headshot challenge.  If you finish that you are rewarded $250,000 in GTA money.  But the best part is it will unlocked it in Red Dead Redemption 2 when that game is out.  So it must not be to far off now.  If they are promoting that game.

[Update] Have started the treasure hunt.  Have a bit of trouble finding the last clue for some reason.  But will keep trying.

[Update 2] Have found the revolver.  All so finished the challenge.  It’s pretty easy to do. 50 headshots sounds like a lot.  But it you do some gang attacks it doesn’t take long.

Funko – Pint Size Heroes DC

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 11, 2017 by getbent57

Am a fan of the Funko product lines.  Have a few of the main vinyls they are famous for.  What I like to collect are the Mystery Minis.  Haven’t bought any of those in months.  Back in August (2017) discovered the Pint Size Heroes line.   Back then bought four of those from the DC line.  Every since then wanted to get a few more but the store didn’t have any more.  Well until a few days ago.  Was out Christmas shop.  Decided to got down the toy aisles in WalMart and seen that the had a box with a few left in it.  Bought two more.  Got The Riddler and  the classic version of Batgirl.
