CRAZY!

March 28, 2009

No House on Monday……..grrrrrr……Heroes was pretty decent however, one of the better episodes this season I would even say. FINALLY got to see Scrubs again and oooohhhh maaaannn was it a good episode. This season has been unbelievable when it comes to the funny scale. I wouldn’t even know where to begin…….

A whole lot of nothing else happened this week. Jen and I did get to see Changeling on Blu-Ray. We hadn’t seen it since we went to check it out in the theater. I just get glued to the screen watching that flick.

Oh yeah and I recently cemented my path as the nerdiest person I know….. I finally got all seven season of Star Trek: Voyager~!

This officially gives every season of every Start Trek ever plus all of the movies. To top it off I have and am continuing to watch all of it in chronological order! Right now I am on season seven of TNG and season two of DSS9.

The Epic Anniversary show was tonight. All I can say is that it blew away all of my expectations. I think it was easily our best show top to bottom and it had a little bit of everything on it. I got to meet some really classy and just flat out awesome people tonight as well. Thanks for making it my favorite wrestling related day ever in history!

The Week In One Post

March 19, 2009

It has in fact been that slow of a week. Kayla had her first real school function of sorts. Her school has a spring concert across the street from us over a John Glenn High School. I was really nervous for her because I know how bad she gets around a lot of people and how nervous she can be with so many eyes on her (lord knows I am). We were both so happy to see her walk out smiling! She sang songs with her classmates in front a packed auditorium (had to be at least 300 people). And she was great!

We were so happy that we went out to McDonald’s to treat her for being so good, not only during the concert but the whole school week. We made it home in enough time to catch the last half hour of House.

I guess I can’t really comment all that much on it. Having missed half the episode I had to take a guess at what was going on. But the last half of the show was really fun. No Heroes this week, and as usual there were no Scrubs either…..WTF!

Turns out I definitely need surgery on my foot again. I go back under the knife on April 8th………I am not looking forward to this at all. In fact I am really starting to dread surgeries , it feels like I am having one a year (and I might very be). As a person in their late 20’s this isn’t a good sign.

Jen and I watched Eagle Eye last night. Pretty fun movie. Not a blow away or anything like that. Certainly good for a once over. Popcorn movies are always a good time. Turn off your mind, have a snack, and kill some time. Speaking of that, check out the watchmen Opening Credits…..Maybe the best credit sequence ever.

Hitler Was A Vegetarian

March 10, 2009

Oh boy this could be a long one………

Saturday was a good day. In fact the entire week was saved by Saturday. Jenny and I went to see Watchmen~!

Despite there not being a trailer for Star Trek in front of it (more on that in a second) it was a fantastic experience. The movie was everything I had hoped for and maybe more. The focus on character and the way they were able to stay true to the story and adapt as much as they did in the time allowed was incredible to me. The one thing I worried about most was Jenny as an outsider to the book and film and her enjoyment. Most of the critical review said outsiders won’t get it, and as it turns out that couldn’t have been further from the truth. She loved it as well, she even figured out the existence of Adrian Veidt’s pet Bubastis in it’s minute and a half of screen time. I should also mention that Jackie Earle Haley was magnificent as Rorschach!

I should also make mention of how great the opening credits were. Set to a fantastic Bob Dylan tune, the credits managed to cover all of the back story without much explanation later on. Even if you didn’t know who the characters are at the start most of those images are explained later on.

Speaking of the Star Trek trailer that I was disappointed I didn’t get to see on the silver screen…. It hit the net on Friday and it is without a doubt THE BEST Trek trailer in it’s long film history.

That brings us to yesterday and the return of House!

And it was worth the wait. I had tweeted earlier on my Twitter account that I thought the show was good but not blow away. Well it didn’t end up as a blow away episode but it was certainly better than good! I like the way this show is going and as per usually I hope it never stops.

Heroes was pretty decent as well, but it looks like we are having a bigger episode next week. The stuff with Sylar and his Dad started good but I didn’t think it was a very good pay off in the end. Right now I’m kind of hot and cold with the show but I am willing to see how it pays off.

Time to start shopping for gifts! Kayla’s birthday is on April 4th, and Jenny has her birthday on May 10th! It’s also Mommy Day so it looks like I will be embellishing on the love of my life a bit more then usual…..Lucky her!

Up To HERE!

March 4, 2009

Well the start of this week has sucked.

No House this week. This is always a sign that the week ahead will be shitty. Heroes was pretty decent, although I can’t really be anymore positive than that as I am still reeling from not getting to see House.

Well at least I had a new set of Scrubs episodes to watch……WTF! Scrubs was shows repeats?!@? WHY?!? The show has been prempted like six times by the president you’d think they would have a back log of new epsidoes just waiting to air!

Also…HEY! All the work I put into the Epic 1 Year Anniversary Show has been for nothing. GREAT!

The only good news I got was that I passed both of my last classes. I am starting a US History Class and Economic Theory.

Jen and I are going to see WATCHMEN~! this Saturday so hopefully that saves this waste of a week…….. Ugggggggg

Yup….This Sucks

February 25, 2009

The House/Heroes double shot on Monday once again brought the goods. House continues to tease something big happening but nothing has so far. So either they have something massive planned for the end of season five or they don’t have a lot of ideas. The season has been good but a bit of a down grade from season four.

Heroes continues to be sturdy with it’s story. I like where it’s going for the most part. I remain skeptical about weather or not they are rehashing the plot of the first season.

I caught whatever it was that Jen had. It sucks to have it, I am not a fan. I hate being sick. I am actually feeling better today, but not by a large margin or anything.

Scrubs wasn’t on AGAIN last night thatnks to a presidential address. It was a good address, but COME ON! Leave Scrubs alone!

Finals for my Accounting and Philosophy classes are due on Sunday…… I can only hope that I feel better before I have to finish them up.

I should also mention that Jen invited my parents over for dinner on Sunday, and she made THE BEST POT ROAST EVER! Don’t mess with crock pot food it will kick your ass!

Ode To Conan

February 21, 2009

Last night was THE LAST EPISODE of Late Night with Conan O’Brien. Indeed this was a sad day for TV.

header_hdtv

Yes I know……. Conan is taking over the Tonight Show slot from Jay Leno and that is cool as hell and I can’t wait to watch. I more then likely won’t be the same though. The show itself was classic Conan. They showed so many good clips including the 1864 baseball skit~! It’s good to know that he plans to be the same ol’ Conan though.

Jen got me NHL ’09 for Valentines Day, it arrived a couple days ago.

So far it has lived up to it’s moniker as the best NHL game in the history of ever. Really fun game and just the right amount of frustrating as well. It’s nice to not be able to breeze through a game, even on the rookie game setting.

SPRING TRAINING IS HERE~!

And so far there is good news coming out of Lakeland, Florida! Triple-A’er Rick Porcello was apparently VERY impressive and the pitching staff thinks he has Major League “stuff” already! Joel Zumya also apparently is looking better then he has since 2006! Hopefully these are good sign that Detroit will rebound and have a good year this year.

The first spring training game is in four days against the Atlanta Braves! GO TIGERS!

Cleaning After Midnight

February 18, 2009

I should not that it is currently 12:21AM here on America’s east coast and I am still awake. IN FACT I still have a lot of cleaning to do. You see, in our apartment complex we have inspections on a somewhat regular basis. Our place is a total disaster and mess. So Jen and I are working into the wee hours of the morning to get it all done.

Well House was damn excellent last night.

Finally got to watch it in HD as well so that was a treat. This season just gets better and better every week. I swear up and down that this is one smart TV show. At this point I find it impossible that I could ever be tired of this show.

Heroes has also been great this half. I would say they have gone 3 for 3 on episodes thus far.

Valentines Day was fun! I got Kayla flowers, and I got Jen some chocolates and a pearl earing and necklace set. She got me NHL ’09 for the PS3~!

Spring training for baseball is starting soon. I can’t wait to watch me some Tigers games in HD~~! Ahhhhhh……….well back to cleaning I suppose…..I am not looking forward to this.
