Thunderslam Part 2 Feb 2010

So some how with only getting one seat I was able to sit in the first row that they sell that was pretty cool. Here are some pictures that show off the monster trucks and they also had some FMX and some go cart racing as well.

I had a great time. One thing I wanted to add is that Monster Jam is a different series or circuit then this series. Monster jam is on speed vision and has come to The Erie County fair in the past but that was years ago. I also saw another promotion back when WCW had monster jam trucks. WWE had The Rock and Austin. I would love to go see monster jam some time. I don't think they come to buffalo any more though I know they have come as close as Toronto but not sure how close they come in "The States"

Monster Trucks Thunder Slam 2010

So there is no way I can post all my pictures from the monster trucks last night. I did have a good time at the pit party and the show. The pit party is where you go down onto the floor and see the trucks up close and the drivers are there and you can pay for a ride on a monster truck. Oh it is a special truck just for that it isn't one of the trucks that is competing. But Last year I think at the end of the show one of them did do some freestyle but not at last nights show, but maybe today's who knows.

Mardi Gras Parade

So On Fat Tuesday I just got to the parade on time to watch it. I wanted to go and see The Stripteasers and get fucked up but mainly see them. But also the olympics where on and it was cold, and we where going to be short a person for part of the day the next day at work and it is a short week. But what lead me the most I think was this sterotype I have. Well sterotype isn't the right word. I don't know much about Roxy's since I've never been there. I thought it was a gay bar or lesbian bar. My view based on that is a single stright guy going into a lesbian bar by him self might not sit to well with some people there. I'm not picking on anyone but it could appear that I was there for the wrong reasons. Lets face it most stright guys have watched some form or Girl on Girl porn or some kind of girls kissing girls website or pictures. It isn't the same seeing it is public like in a porn just like stright people making out isn't the same as in porn. I just get this feeling that I might not be welcome there. I'm not saying I wouldn't be welcomed , it is just a feeling I have. Now if I was with some friends it might be a different story.

On a side note I kinda feel Mardi Gras is kinda silly in Buffalo. It is freezing who is going to show of there tits or their dick for beads, well ok I would if she was cute, well I wouldn't need beeds but maybe some green label Jack might help. Hope those who went out had a great time and stayed safe. Yesterday was Ash Wedsday and lent has started for some people that is a big holiday also. Well here are the parade shots.

Now that I think about it I'm not even sure what Mardi Gras cellebrates and I'm not sure what Fat Tuesday is about except that it is like the end of it. One thing that Surprised me is the planned parenthood truck, hey it is a good idea wish I would have stopped by there with some one and then we went back to their place that would have been fun, oh yeah and look at what is less then a month away, hard to believe that.

2010 winter olympics

I thought I should say something about the winter olympics but not sure what. I have all kinds of posts well they are really links over on facebook. I watched the opening ceremonies on Both CBC and NBC last night. It was friday at the end of a work week so I couldn't stay up for all of them. My quick thoughts are this

-- Much Music has a set up in the olympic village area someplace and that was interesting they had girls/ladies in an out door hot tube and had a promotion called "Drop Your Gear For Beer" . You strip down to you underwear for beer. To bad we don't get Much Music in the US anymore there used to me a Much Music USA that got bought and changed it name to Fuze (or is that with an S) if you have digital cable check them out they play a lot of music. When they first changed names they had some of the old shows on that where on both networks. Oh yeah back to the much Music thing. I guess they also have bands coming by, so if you have a Dish or live in Canada check them out.

- I loved the snowboarding entrance thing that was pretty amazing.

- Like the teams coming in when It hit commercial time I would flip to CTV/CFTO or vise versa.

- After the fact I saw the Torch Passing all I can is The Great one was awesome

- Saw the whale thing that was pretty cool

- Ski Jumping is pretty cool

- Even though they warned us, I'm surprised they showed the entire deadly luge crash, I thought for sure they would make that only on the web, plus they showed the medics working on him, again that surprised me.

CTV/CFTO has coverage starting like about an Hour ago. One of the events got cancelled so I wonder what they are doing about that viewership wise. Need to see.

Tonight Have to see the Moguls where they then do the tricks that is amazing.

Never made it to my movie or to get my self a huge Heart maybe I'll slide up to wilson farms or walgreens and get one for my self so I can treat my self during the games tonight

Day one was good hoping the rest are good also.

Oh yeah Hockey Starts today, women's .

Back to the CTV thing for a minute. What I watched this morning (some of it) was kinda like a recap show. One thing that I drew from it was that it isn't just about the sports. It is about more and they show you or at least talk about some of the things other then just the sport like things like things in the area connected to the games. Wish I was better at explaining it.

Mardi Valentine Olympics

Well I was going to write about how the Olympics start tonight and how CBC had some coverage of the torch relay. But I wouldn't have much to say. But this distracted me on my way home. Still not sure what I'm doing for V-day. I think I will Watch the Bill Maher comedy special and get my self some candy in a box, I would like to see a movie and maybe buy one maybe do the tax's ah not sure. But I have a question.

IS THIS THE BEST ARTVOICE COVER EVER ?




image

On A side Note that is a scan

On a second side note does anyone know this model and is she single ? I wonder if she is local cause she sure is pretty. I'm a big boob guy myself but I don't think it would really work as a cover it would show to much skin, but I would still love it.

Broken Homes Aren't ok

So I'm writing about something that I don't want to write about really but I must, I've been putting it off and putting it off for a couple reasons. 1. It (assuming anyone reads this) may piss a lot of people off, I could never post this on Facebook and Myspace. 2. I don't know if I should really admit this publicly. 3. I don't know if people will get what I mean or if people will miss understand me.

So as some may know I'm an Uncle. I see my niece some but not tons. I'm sure it is a lot more then some and a lot less then some other uncles. But every time I do see her i feel a sadness, not a deep sadness like I want to cry but just a general sadness. The reason for that is that I know that I'm seeing her for the wrong reason. It isn't like I'm watching her for hours or anything like that. It is because the the Baby's mother and father aren't together. For those that know me you may get that I'm very complex and complicated and also very simple in some ways. What I mean is that some things I find are simple and they should be that way don't go and make things complex that don't need to be. Most of the time I see her if they where together their would be no need for me to see her.

I know everyone is a little bit fucked up. But I'm sorry A one parent house hold fucks kids up. That going back and forth, and living in two places. Having different rules and maybe different parenting styles. All of that fucks kids up. I know in this generation that is thought to be ok and that kids will be fine, well guess what that is wrong they won't be. Kids need stability. But what they also need is to have an example set of what family is, what commitment is. What Sacrifice is. Believe me, I don't know how but kids pick up on all that stuff, you don't need a degree to know that.

That I know of there are 2 people in my family who had a relationship, then had a kid, then kept the relationship, then that ended. I don't need to know the details to tell you why those ended. Someone or both people thought that their own Happiness was more important then the welfare of their child. I'm sorry but Fuck You. Once you have a child what is good for you is second to the kid. He didn't ask to be born, he didn't have a choice, he is innocent. You have a responsibility to him/her to what what is best (not what makes the child happy, don't get me started on that bullshit idea, Oh I want him to be happy, or I want to be his best friend) for them, I get and know that relationships are hard and kid makes them tougher. But every step of the way their was a choice to have sex, what to do about the baby, if you where going to stay together, then you make all the choices and when things get tough you give up and only think about your self. Well fuck you and what you want you have a kid, you are no longer a kid you are now the adult and the parent and it is time to act like. ARGH I' m so pissed.

I get that there are cases where two people can't get along and all the fighting or maybe throwing things is worse for the kid, in that case that is ok. But then if that was the case you should have broken up before the kid not after it. I get that sometimes the love ends and people fall in love with other people, but still your kid needs to be priority #1.

This is one of the reasons I'm glad I'm not out trying to met people in bars. On a side note will I ever met anyone on okcupid who I didn't all ready know (Dana, Carey , Heidi and someone else). Well it wouldn't matter really since I don't catch anyone's eyes in straight or Gay Bars (that was a good time hanging out with all those (e:peeps)). But see at least with a one night stand if something goes wrong like a condom breaks or something, it isn't that commitment issue. You where both their to have sex, there was no intended child, their was no relationship you where both getting off and it was about your self for both of you.

I think I'm starting to get those Crazy Christians. You know the ones with the big banners who yell about sin. I'm not saying I agree with how they give the message. No one wants to hear that when they are at a downtown concert. But you know what they have a point. Think of it this way. If I'm in a relationship with someone commitment to them is a big part of that. If I don't have enough of a commitment (might be wrong word) to that person to wait to have sex until Marriage . Then How could I have any commitment to that person after we have sex. If someone doesn't have the patience to wait till marriage why would they have patience enough to stick around after you have a child.

I have been good friends with people who had multiple kids by different fathers and it is so sad. I didn't think it was then. But my point of view was a little bit different. I can't imagine what it is like for kids to have their mother, and then there is a boy friend. Kids like or don't like that one and it lasts for some time maybe even a few years and then the relationship runs it course and ends, and mom is ok but then for the kids it is a new boyfriend. I'm sorry it is just fucked up. Don't take this the wrong way I don't dislike all the people I have known who have done this, but thinking back it is fucked up.

Well I have no idea if I expressed what I really wanted to but at least it is out there now., and I got it off my chest. I didn't even touch on how parents bad mouth the other one, or how sometimes in divorces or splits each parent tries to out do the other one with better and bigger gifts, that must mess up kids pretty bad to.....

1-5 go the bandits from Rock

So I admit I'm a bit behind. On Saturday I went to the Bandits and had a good but watched them lose to the Toronto Rock and go 1-5 on the season. The Bandits had their chances and they fought so hard to comeback and take the lead but Toronto was just to good in the end. Not sure how many photos will get posted but here they are. On a side note I like that the Mexican Place/ Peliegh High and a few other places are now open for Bandits game they used to not be. I also like that they sell those split club tickets for the Jr. Sabres.

V-day what to do?

Well this year I'm not hating on Valentines Day but I'm not loving it either. Not sure what to do really? On Friday Night I'm thinking about going to see Fly Leaf and As Summer Dies they are at the Town Ballroom. Wow has it been a long time since I've been to a show in a small venue like that or what some would call a club show. On one way I want to go but I don't want to wait outside waiting for doors to open to get pated down and then find out if the camera is ok. Then get tickets inside, but I really don't want to wait outside in the cold. Plus I think that opening sermonizes for the Winter Olympics are on that night. For those of you that get CBC you may like their Coverage better, in some ways it is better but they also focus on Canadian Athletes. I assume thought that NBC having multiple cable channels will have coverage of different sports. I should really look into that. I would love to for once sit down and watch a couple hockey games. I need to find out when like the snow boarding is. I know they have added some new sport this year but not sure what it is.

Maybe On Sunday I'll watch some movies or maybe I'll go to the movies and out to dinner by myself on Saturday. I want to see that From Paris with love and there are other movies out I would like to see. March 5th Alice In Wonderland comes out, oh my awesome it looks amazing. I don't know if I even remember the original maybe I should look into finding that. I kinda want to see something violent Maybe I should buy the other Kill bill and watch those back to back. In some form I need to buy myself a huge box of Chocolate or a small one. But it is so expensive for how much it is. I don't know I'll figure something out and maybe I'll find something violent. That reminds me the new Robin Hood with Russell Crowe looks amazing. If I had it on DVD True Blood would make a good Marathon. I do want to watch something good and violent wish I could find some great animee with naked hot chicks killing monsters with swords or something like that, that would be good. I'm not sure but I will try to have fun somehow.

Not going to go to a strip club. I do want to check out that Tiffany's cabaret. It would be fun to find some fun out of the back of art voice but I won't be doing that. Hey even if I can find some kind of olympic sports i like say luge or Bobsliegh not sure I need to find something fun though.............

More Pre then Game

For Those that don't follow Football or sports you may not know that today is the superbowl. This for some time has been more of an event then a game. Yes a game will be played but for so many people it is much more then that. There have been some great games and some bad games, I hope tonight's is a great game. There have been games in the past where the ads where better then the game. There have been times when the singing was better then the game. By the way When will Metallica get a half time show. Granted one of their new songs might take up the entire Half but the half could be extended. I can remember other networks would have their own Half Time show you could click over to.

I know I bash E! for this but they do this same super early pre game show thing to on the award shows. I have seen that they had a 2-3 hr red carpet and then a preshow before that. Then again for some of the awards Fashion TV had stuff on at the same time. Than after the awards they have a post show. The post show makes sense so you can recap and show people what they looked like getting the award. Maybe I need to stop bashing E! because the more I think about it their preshow is like the NFL. On their show they interview people and see what they are wearing but if these people don't win you won't really see them.

Today the 1st preshow starts at noon. Yes I will be watching it. Not sure what road to the superbowl is. But hey it should be good. Later on is the All Iron Team. Hey if Madden can have one why not Phil Sims. By the time that the game starts I will have seen more pregame then I will game even if it was the first game to go to Over Time. Yes and as bizarre as that sounds it is but it isn't really. I do want to ad that I have seen some pretty interesting stuff in the past before superbowls . Some of it was about players. Some it where ads that didn't show again during the game. Some of it was entertainment.

I haven't been to a Bills game in a long time. The one thing I can remember though is Tailgating. Everyone does their own thing in their own way. This is different in Different cities as well. My impression was that there where people who where their hours before us. I have heard that some people get there the night before or maybe it is more like very early morning, I guessing though that they wait for the sun to come up. I have even heard that some people go to just tailgate and don't even have tickets, now that is a party and watch the game on a TV outside the stadium. That is the same Mentality that goes on in all the pregame stuff. Just wanted to ad that this doesn't only happen for football It happens at concerts as well. So my end point is Enjoy the game, enjoy the event and hopefully the game will be better then the pregame stuff but it won't be longer then it. Oh yeah and if the team you want loses show some class and watch the other team interviewed.

I feel as if I'm leaving something out but not sure what else I could really say other then the Super Bowl started out as a game and now it is an all day event hope everyone enjoys it. Hey if football isn't your thing and you are at the party for the party enjoy that to cause it could be better then the game.
