And It Goes On!

March 10, 2010

Sometimes (I think you’ll find) that things in your life seem to be balancing. They aren’t really great, but they aren’t really bad either. I am really starting to get that feeling right now. There are some good things, some not so good things. Right now things are starting to feel better.

One interesting thing that happened was my Dad getting into the Bay City Times AND The Saginaw News.

What he nor I were expecting is that it would be front page news. He had been unemployed for well over a year, and sent out well over 400 applications and never received so much as a call back let alone an interview. He’s actually going back to school to learn a new craft (which I commend him for, but it makes me sad that he should even have to). Everyone (including the writer and the photographer of the story) was hoping that this would result in work for him. Fortunately he found a part time time job at MBS Airport. He can still collect unemployment and go back to school, and knowing the hard worker my Dad is he will be back on his feet in no time and kiss that unemployment goodbye!

In other good news, Spring Training has begun in Florida and Arizona! Of course this means I get to watch my beloved Tigers take the field again, it also means Opening Day isn’t far away!

Seeing Johnny Damon in an Old English D is going to take some getting use to, but I think I’ll make it. I watched their first televised game on the MLB Network. It was a 9-5 win for the D and it was very cool to see Maggs ripping the ball again. I was also really impressed by the youngster Austin Jackson. It should be a really interesting year!

That being said, I am also eagerly awaiting the arrival of MLB 10: The Show. I didn’t think they could improve upon what was already the best baseball game I’ve ever played but it looks like they’ve done it! Hell they even have Verlander’s proper wind-up this year~!

I also recently watch Up in the Air with George Clooney. I learned something from this movie. I need to stop judging a book by its cover.

Upon seeing trailers for this movie I was totally uninterested at first. I read a lot of great reviews, saw that Clooney was up for an Oscar, but still it didn’t make much difference to me weather I saw it or not. Out of sheer boredom I decided to give it a watch, and boy was I surprised. This movie deserves any and all hype it got and Clooney deserved the acting nod that he was given. Go out and see it! It’s rare to see such a great dramatic film that manages to mix in comedy but keep it serious.

20 Smiley Faces!

November 26, 2008

So Kayla’s behavior in school has not been the best lately. We asked her teacher to send home a progress report. This report consists of the 10 sections her day at Kindergarten. If she did good she gets a smiley face, if not then we get a note about what her problem was. Well until this week she was getting 8/10, 7/10 and one bad day where she had 5/10. Well on Monday, and yesterday she got all 10 smiley faces and we couldn’t be more proud!

Monday had a pretty decent Heroes episode.

It’s a two parter, and Heroes is usually a cliff hanger based show as it is, so we have a cliff hanger within a cliff hanger. It was a pretty decent episode allthough I wasn’t super in to it until the end. Maybe all of the twisting is finally taking a toll? Maybe I was just tire that night? Who knows?

House last night was excellent!

I was expecting an over the top episode, where things are kind of goofy but I was way off. Even though I enjoy the wacky episodes, they are lower on the list of favorite episodes. This ended up being a very good episode, and something new as it was defintely a different way of doing a House episode that was familiar but not so formulaic.

Oh also a “new” Star Trek Trailer has cropped up. Actually it’s the same trailer with a new ending, but the ending totally makes it worth watching over again!

THANKSGIVING TOMORROW

Yeah….I’m Jumping On

November 20, 2008

That’s right! I am jumping on the Tropic Thunder Bandwagon!

I guess I was just get of “ho-hum” about the movie, but when I got a chance to check it our for free I usually don’t pass that sort of thing up. The movie was hilarious from start to finish. And not only did I tolerate Tom Cruise in this movie I actually loved him. The movies is now on the “to buy list”.

Heroes on Monday was also quite good.

I will freely admit that I’m kind of uncertain where they are going for the first in their three year run. A lot of things came together, but a lot of things were kind of confusing. I am willing to tough it out though and see if they can make up for the confusion by tiying it all together.

House was very good……..

gw404h305

It was kind of a patient oriented show and a little less about the characters this time around, it’s been a while since I’ve seen a show like that. It was defintely good just not as good as the other episodes so far this season. The next episode looks to be on of the “crazy House” episodes where something on the wrong side of unbelieveable happens, those shows are usually really good though.

Oh yeah……….the new Star Trek trailer finally came out…………….AND IT IS EPIC!

Input Failure

March 25, 2008

So I went to the doctors on the 18th. We are definitely doing the surgery. I’m going to be off my feet for a couple weeks, and I won’t be back to myself for upwards of eight weeks. The surgery will be sometime in June. We haven’t picked a date yet.

The Epic show was on the 22nd. For me, the end result was a lot mixed emotions. Everyone worked hard. There were even a couple of great matches. The over all feeling wasn’t there for me though. The coheasiveness and teamwork wasn’t quite there. I really want this to be a place where we are friends, problems can get resolved and so forth. If someone isn’t “ready” yet then offer them some advice, help them out, constructive criticism. If your here to look out for yourself then your in the wrong place. I’ve already written at great length for my disdain of the wrestling business in general and how my ideas and it’s do not mix. If people want to be selfish, look out for themselves, and tear down others and build up themselves then there just isn’t a place for that kind of attitude here. You’ll fit in great elsewhere though. It’s just not the atmosphere I’m looking for. If it’s not bothering us, then it shouldn’t be bothering you. Obviously we want to make things better, but just saying someone did a shit job doesn’t fix anything, nor help. I hope people will keep that in mind in the future.

I did throw together a rather sloppy teaser together. The YouTube version can be seen below. The better version can be found on the Epic Site, which is located in the links on the right.

If you get a chance, check out Thank You For Smoking.

Jen and I watched it on one of the many pay channels we have currently. I don’t remember which. But it was a really awesome movie. Highly suggested. I am eagerly awaiting my next set of Netflix movies as well. And the days are counting down to season one of NIGHT COURT~!
