I am currently spending my last night in Moncton New Brunswick due to work commitments and I am a little sad to be leaving. I am currently bunked up at the Ramada Crystal Palace hotel. I am amazed at this place as it is a part of the indoor Crystal Palace Amusement Park and is right next door to the huge Champlain Place mall. I do not have one major topic to discuss today so I thought I would delve into a few different topics in a random order.
I treated myself to a 3D movie tonight and I decided to go see G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Now I will admit that I have never been a huge Joe fan, as I was a Transformers kid growing up. but I did love the character of Cobra Commander. I just did not like that he was such a joke in the cartoon. I did not care for the movie G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra and a lot of that was due to the fact that they bastardized the leader of Cobra’s look.
I absolutely detested it. I would have preferred the blue hood from the cartoon instead of the mask they gave him. With the second movie they righted the wrong and gave him the silver and blue helmet that I grew up wishing I owned. It was the highlight of the movie to me and I did enjoy the more than I thought I would.
TO BEAST OR NOT TO BEAST
When I was in the Champlain Place mall today I ventured into HMV to check out there music selection. Yes, I am one of those rare people who still buys physical cds. I am a collector at heart and have started my newest quest to acquire the musical library of a band I love. I have over 100 KISS / KISS related (solo and tribute albums), all of the studio albums for Nightwish (and some of their cd singles) and have added my second cd to the Lordi catalogue.
My first cd for the Finnish monsters of Rock is a greatest hits album titled “Zombilation” and I purchased the band’s latest cd “To Beast Or Not To Beast.” Lordi fits the bill for what I look for in musical acts. I love loud bass, catchy riffs, a theatrical performance and well written songs. The band’s debut album was released just 11 years ago, so I should have an easier time to fill out my collection.
TROUBLE IN T.O.?
I am not one of the Blue Jays fans who is completely shocked that the mighty Jays have struggled a little bit this season, as I expected some growing pains due to the team trying to feel out some chemistry with the newest players to join the baseball club.
There is no way that you can completely rip apart a pitching staff and expect the staff to be airtight to start the season. Think about it this. Last year’s staff ace is pitching in Single A ball this year and the only starter left from last season is Brandon Morrow. The other 4 slots in the rotation are all new players who were acquired in the of season.
I am not overly worried about the start the team has had this season, as I believe once they are comfortable it will all come into place.
21 – 0
I did not watch Wrestlemania this year, but there is one match I can not wait to see. The Undertaker vs C.M. Punk. The streak vs the former longest reigning champion in decades. I am not a huge wrestling fan like I used to be about 20 years ago, but I truly enjoy watching C.M. Punk master his craft in the square circle.
I have read results and reviews of the match and everyone has been praising the work and chemistry between both men. I truly believe that the WWE needs to build around the likes of C.M. Punk as the man can do it all. He put on a clinic in the ring, use fantastic ring psychology to tell a story during the match and can out talk 99.9% of the roster. I am a Straight Edge supporter!
