Viva La Bam!

Last night I spent the evening with Trish showing her the hilarity and insanity of the show that is Viva La Bam, MTV's reality show for pro-skate boarder Bam Margera, chronicalling the insane hijinks he and his crew get up to, and usually drag his family into as well. This show quickly became one of my favorites of the year, despite the rather late airing time. So I downloaded it and ripped it to DVD so I could share the fun with my girl, who was downright confused for the most part, and who could blame her if you haven't seen some of the crazy shenanigans Bam gets up to like re-enacting a civil war in his backyard, teaching his dad Phil and uncle Vito how to rock and roll (I laughed so hard in this one that I hurt my ribs!), and the game or one-upsmanship against Jackass head honcho Johnny Knoxville!
If you've never watched Viva La Bam before, I strongly suggest doing so!

Anyways, as today is the final day of 2005, I found it fitting to do one more puroresu show review, and the show I picked was GAEA Eternal Last Gong 4/10/2005. The final GAEA show before closing it's doors earlier this year. Read and enjoy.

Now I gotta go and figure out a way to ring in the new year with Trish. She's working late tonight, so I gotta find a way to bring the new year festivaties to her! Wish me luck! See y'allz in 2006, mofos!

Not so Valiant

Last night me and Trish went to watch the 3D animated movie Valiant. World War II movie about homing pigeons who sent messages from the frontlines avoiding the dangers of Nazi falcons who try to stop them from accomplishing their mission. Good for a laugh, but certainly not the best animated movie I've seen this year. The 3D art was even poor in comparison, as it all looked rather dull and bland, not as detailed.

Anywayz, the new year is upon us. So keep your eyes opened for my best and worse of the year awards. Hopefully I can get it posted on Sunday. Till then, I've got a PS2 game review of the game Farenheit (also know as Indigo Prophecy) up, an excellent game worth checking out, and a CD review of the new KoRn album, See You On The Other Side. I've also posted one of my longest articles ever a few days back, my Puroresu Year In Review 2005. Read and Enjoy. See Y'all next year!

Merry Christmas Y'all!

Guess what y'all? I got engaged!
That's right, me and Trish officially got engaged yesterday in front of our families. It was a tough road to get here, but luckilly everything went off without a hitch yesterday. Both sides of the family got on really well and there was enough food and drinks for everyone, though me and Trish were scrapping at the leftovers at the end of the night cause we didn't really eat much, what with all the jitters and butterflies in our stomachs. But by the end of it, we're both probably the happiest couple on the planet right now. So here's wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Now I can play the game...

I started my Christmas leave yesterday, and Me and Trish went to get a hair cut to celebrate, what with XMas being around the corner and all. Last night, we went to watch King Kong, the 3 HOUR epic remake by Peter Jackson of Lord of the Rings movie fame. All I can say is this was a really good big budget block buster of a movie, and you all definately need to watch it! And now that I've watched the movie, I can get to playing the game which was sitting on my table for the past week cause I didn't want to spoil anything from the movie by playing it early, and the game itself has been praised as one of the must play games of the year!

Edit: Added my review of the Dragon Gate "Pro Wrestling Festival" 7/03/2005 show. It's the first year anniversary show of the company under the Dragon Gate banner with some big matches.

Time flies

Where to start?
Last Wednesday I caught the finals of the Amazing Race: Family Edition, and despite what many considered to be a rather lackluster season (most of the favorites were eliminated early), the finals started off with a deep feeling of dread as the hypocrite "holier than thou" Weaver family took a HUGE lead over the Linz and Bransen family. But luckilly for us all their luck ran out when their laziness got the better of them and the other families managed to catch up and overtake them, leading to a very tense finaly sprint between the Linzes and Bransens. And I was darn happy the Linz siblings won at the end, keeping true to their word that they might not win every leg, but that they would be the ones stepping accross the finish line first. Good to see next season will be back to the standard 2 person teams.
Thursday me and Trish went around town doing alot of window shopping. Christmas is around da corner don't ya know? I got myself this cool shirt with a "Fight Training" type logo on it.
Friday was more of the same.
Saturday my home PC develop some audio problems and now it has zero sound coming out of it. Spent most of the day playing EA Fight Night: Round 2 and in one afternoon won the Heavyweight, Light-Heavyweight and Unified World Titles. My record is 28-0-0. Yeah, I'm gifted with the "Power of the Punch".
Sunday evening me and Trish went out on another round window shopping. Only this time I actually bought a shirt for myself, and so did she.
Still got a busy week ahead of me, so seeya in a bit.

Ring Around The Collar

Thursday I took the day off work to spend some quality time with Trish, what with the holidays coming up and all we decided to look for some holiday gift ideas early. We also went to catch the premiere of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. This is yet another epic movie based on a book I never heard of before. I thought it was interesting, but don’t let the movie trailers fool you, cause it takes a LONG while to sit through before things get interesting.
Friday we spent the evening checking out the Miss World Vote For Me specials and criticizing the looks of the contestants. Yeah, that’s what we’ve been reduced too when there ain’t nothing worth watching on TV, Which reminds me of the last episode of Angel we saw last week. I’m not sure if that was the last episode of the series, or the last episode of the season since they advertised it as last of the series, but during the show itself referred to it as last of the current season.
I had lunch with Trish on Saturday and pretty much spent the rest of the day at home playing Magna Carta: Tears of Blood on PS2. Wasn’t much going on in the evening either. Tried to watch the HBO debut of Thunderbirds, but this was just SO HORRIBLE I instead watched the WRESTLE-1 GP Round 2 show, which was about as bad as the reviews said it was. Check out my review of the show for those interested. I also checked out the Miss World finals which was won by Miss Iceland. I guess it’s pretty obvious that looks aren’t everything in this contest if you take a look at some of the contestants.
Not much doing today either. Had lunch again with Trish at this big new seafood restaurant called, get this, SEA WORLD. One e-mail from me and what fun the resulting lawsuit from Sea World Orlando we could have. I also fetched Trish home from in the evening. Really not a lot going on in the home front either at the moment.

The Real Dumbass
I also caught a marathon of The Real World: Paris episodes on MTV on Saturday night. Man, I read about how bad he was on the net, but that jerk Chris really is a dick and the only reason he wasn't booted from the show for getting into a fight at a pub and actually punching a guy who had his hands behind his back is because guys like him who bring controversy also bring in ratings. This dumbass even neglected his girlfriend who flew half-way around the world just to see him so he could fool around with his cousin.
After that at about 2AM they showed VH1's Top 40 Celebrity Feuds hosted by Stone Cold Steve Austin. If they ever make a list of the top reality show jack-asses, I'm pretty sure Chris would easily make the list.

Anime fun
My interest in watching Japanese Anime has grown again these few weeks after watching Trigun and Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid. I’m currently downloading and watching a batch of fun anime series like Jigoku Shoujo (aka Hell Girl), Shuffle!, the Ninja Gaiden OVA, and a modern remake of the Gaiking anime series. I was even thinking of starting a new blog to recap the episodes I’ve watched. What do you guys think?

Full Metal Panic

I said the other day that I would finish watching Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid by the end of the week, but I actually just finished watching it last night! And overall, I thought this was a really great anime series with an excellent story, which is why I couldn't stop watching until the end. Pretty obvious you'd have to know the story of the first season to get some of the bits that was going on here, but I still enjoyed it thoroughly and the only small complaint I have is that at 13 episodes is really short. The first season was 24 episodes long if I'm not mistaken, and this one really felt rushed at times. But it's still a great anime series and I HIGHLY recommend this one.

Marathon Anime Run

I spent most of my weekend going through a marathon run of watching many anime episodes on my PC so I could finally delete them (after burning it to DVD-R of course) and free up my hardisc space. I finished watching the Trigun anime series, which I really enjoyed save for the ending maybe. I felt they could have had one more episode to close things out other than to leave things hanging a bit. It was still really fun though.
After that was done, I went through half of Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid. I've never watched the original series, but the spin-off, Full Metal Panic: Fumoffu was downright hilarious. This official second season to the original is more serious, as it centers on the action, but there are some humourus spots in it as well, like the car chase scene in episode six and Sousuke Sagara's hopeless efforts to fit into everyday life when not out on dangerous missions. I might be able to get through this one by the end of the week, and then on to whatever is left on my PC, like the many puroresu shows.

Whats in da name?

Me and Trish went to watch the 4th installment in the Harry Potter movie trilogy last night. I thought it was kinda good since the characters are growing up and they are playing to it. Not sure how close it is to the book since I don't read them though. I like the darker direction the story is going in. The only gripe I might have is the title of the movie. The Goblet of Fire. The previous movies all had something to do with the title, but in this case it was more like a cameo as the Goblet only had like 5 minutes of airtime all together. Maybe they should have called it Harry Potter and the Tri-Wizard Cup???
I also noticed the dragons in the movie were ripped off directly from dragon movie Reign of Fire, which isn't really bad since those dragon's rocked! These are probably the first CG characters to make an appearance in two seperate movies.
And once again, I really would like to see Cradle of Filth singer Dani Filth in one of these movies. He would have made a very good Voldemort, and scare alot of kids in the process!
