Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 16, 2018 by getbent57

Finished reading Charley Boorman’s newest book, Long Way Back, last night.  Have read all his books and enjoyed each one of them.  This one is no different.  The book is about, back in February 2016 he had a very bad accident which messed up this leg, ankles and wrist.  He talks about how it happened and the year long recovery.  Mixed in-between the book is all so an mini autobiography.   The tells stories from when I was a small child up to the present.  How it related to what he was going though the recovery.  It was all very interesting, fun or inspiring.

This man leads a very leads a very interesting life.  He seems very down to earth tellimg all kinds of stories most people would never share.  Very happy to have read this book as well as this others.  You don’t have to be into motorcycles to enjoy this.  Recommend this book to everyone.

2018 Royal Rumble

Royal_RumbleHave not watched wresting or WWE in a long time.  But do check out their website every week to see what is going on.  They seem to have a PPV every three weeks now.  So there is no real build up any more.  That being said there are still the big two they do I have to watch WrestleMania and the Royal Rumble.  This years (2018) Royal Rumble will be a bit different from past years because it will have the first every 30 person Women’s Rumble.  This should be good.  The only question I have is there 30 women in the WWE?  I know in past Rumbles they would have “filler” guys.  Like surprise guests and older/retired wresters.  I guess we will find out soon.   This is set to be on PPV/WWE Network January 28, 2018.

Making_Fun_The_Story_Of_FunkoSeen an interesting trailer for a documentary about Funko.  It is called Making Fun, The Story of Funko.  I don’t know much about this company.  But I do know that their products are every were.  They are famous for the pop culture toys.  So much so they are pop culture themselves.  I own about 30 or so of their products.  Would very much like to see this documentary.  Not yet sure how it will be distributed.  The website say it will have it’s world premiere on January 22, 2018 in Hollywood.  I hope they put this on their YouTube channel.  You can watch the trailer > here or below.

DSLR Camera Bag

Adventura_SH_160_IINear the end of May (2017) bought myself a DSLR camera,  a Cannon EOS Rebel T5i.  Ever since than knew I should get a bag for it because I would like to take it places.  So that is what I did the other day.  Was looking around at buying a Cannon branded bag.  The ones I found were way too much money.  Then took a look at the Lowerpro brand.  The local Best Buy carries them.  They have a few different ones.  Went with the biggest one, Adventura SH 160 II.  While it still seem like it cost a lot.  Think it is worth it to keep the camera safe.

Faithless – God Is A DJ

Faithless_God_Is_A_DJOnce again musical throwback Thursday. There are so many classic 90’s songs that I have forget about.  So when it’s time to write ones of these post it is fun to rediscovering all kinds of awesome ones.  The pick this week is God Is a DJ by Faithless.  This one stands out because the way it is more of a spoken word song with a house sound behind it.  The song is off their second album released in 1998 called Sunday 8PM.  You can see/hear the official music video > here or below.

Funko – Mystery Minis – DC Heroes & Pets

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 10, 2018 by getbent57

Think I might have a bit of a problem.  Have bought two more Funko vinyls Mystery Mini’s.  Really like colleting these.  But I limited myself to a few every so many months.  All so like to collect from different product lines.  This time the two I bought are from the DC Heroes and Pets Line.  They are a bit too cutesy for my taste.  All so they feel really cheap compared to the other Mini’s.  The ones I got are Joker and Krypto.
