Changing West side

So this Morning I had to get some Cat Food. Let me explain. It is my sis's cat but with her baby now the cat would try to get out and it was just a bit to much, the cat is pretty spoiled and craves lots of attention and adventure. So the cat moved into the mothers house, but that isn't why I wrote this.

So I'm barley awake and walk down to Connecticut st. Now for those who know that Area there have been a lot of Changes. They used to Have the Italian Festival over there and once it moved to Hertel it did come back for one year. Years ago I guess there where a lot of of fires (not sure if I was alive then or not) known as Italian Lightning. But ever since I was very young there was this mural on a side of this building, it was a landmark. It was dark I was coming home from a show (later in life) from the showplace you say that mark and knew where you where. Well it is almost gone.

It was early and I didn't feel like roaming around Near the college so this is all I got.

Movies and lost post (reading found)

So Yesterday was an interesting day. It started out with a nice Hot shower. Now to most people showers are quick and over in like 5 minutes, well unless they are with someone else, then they end in 3 minutes, HA. But not for me I have to enjoy it and make sure I'm clean. I don't like to take them but once I'm in I'm good. Part of that is since it is relaxing you mind goes other places, you just can't help it. Again this assumes you don't have a cutie pie in their with ya. But Yesterday I had all these great thoughts and I lost them It was going to be an interesting Blog. The only thing I can really remember is that it was about Baths Vs. Showers and can't remember where that lead me. I do remember this though that the problem with Baths is that you sit in your own dirty water. What about Bubble Baths and candles yeah that is all nice and romantic and stuff but when you are done how do you get all the bubbles off, and again if not alone I'm sure there is all sorts of other things you have to clean off, HA. I was also thinking I need to play around with my Camera and see about video and seeing if I can make one and download it and upload it. If I did it from the shower that would be cool. Of course from shoulders up. If I was a chick everyone would be hoping the camera slipped and they saw lots of great stuff and then they would hope it lands in the water and does and up shot for all the talking. But being a guy everyone would look away and Hope that doesn't Happen.

I just remembered what my post was going to be about, this won't be as good as what was in my head but it will have to do. I Have read on line from some of you guys that Reading Rainbow has been canceled and that is to bad. I think it is very important that kids be taught that reading is fun. I think the way that happens is to be read to first.

In My case when I was in school reading often seemed like a chore. What I mean was it was something you had to do for class. You didn't get to pick what you wanted to read. Plus most classes other then like math you need to read for. Hey maybe I'm just more of a visual person. The thing is reading should be fun and kids shouldn't be brought up on only movies and TV. Reading early helps with spelling and having a good vocabulary.

When I was a kid a read "Where the Wild things are" hey most kids if they didn't it was read to them. I don't remember much of it, but I'm so going to see the movie. Some might think this turning books into movies is a new thing but it isn't at all, it has been going on for a long time. The first example in terms of time that I know of is James Bond. I never read any of the stories or books but love all the movies. I admit I haven't seen really any of the old ones and don't remember much from the ones I saw as a kid. But what I can say is that if no one ever wrote them then we wouldn't have the movies.

Some other examples that come to Mind are things like "Puff The Magic Dragon", Harold and the Purple Caryon and there where a bunch of other kids books that got turned into animated movies. I wonder though if getting someone to watch the movies can get them to read the book, I think it can. In fact what often happens now is when a movie comes out based on a book they put a picture from the movie on the book cover. The other thing that happens is they often come out with a new book, and that book is the movie version of that book.

One Can't forget about Comic Books. Visually they are great and often they appeal to kids who normally wouldn't want to read like a book. I think as first reading they are a bad idea. Yes they do teach that you need to follow order. If you read the panels wrong the story makes no sense. Yes it gives people a sense of waiting and not instant gratification. You buy a book one month read the story then next month get the next issue. Of course some people buy a bunch of issues at once just like how some people wait for a TV show to come out on DVD so they can see it all at once with out the wait. But the downside is that they are so visual compared to how much writing there is that it can teach to read in short amounts and that the art work is the most important aspect. Comics are now a great source for movie companies to get material from.

I really like TrueBlood and think it is a great show. But the only reason it became a show is because the books where good or sold a lot of copies. So what I'm saying is that if people only watch TV and movies and don't read then there will be a lot of great shows and movies that never happen. But that isn't reason enough. Also if people don't read then you also won't have people writing anything either.

Again I'm sure this sounded much better in my head then on this blog.

So (If anyone is still here) after my shower yesterday I went downtown to buy Sabres Tickets. I knew there where 5 games I wanted to go to, so I wound up getting a mini pack. I just wish I would have got them sooner so I would have been closer but I think my seat worked out good. But there is still this other part of me that goes well I could have used the money this way or that way but I will have a great time. First game turns out is on Sweetest day (now if I could only blow myself I could be my own date, HA), and just to be clear I only got one ticket so I don't have any extras.

Next I was off to go see 9. I liked it. But I thought it was going to be more. It also seemed very short. After that I saw Surrogates. Wow what a great movie. First of all Bruce Willis so it is one of his style of movies and they are all ways fun. Then there is that Sci-Fi thing so it has the sci-fi message about robots and them not being the same as humans. Yes it felt like an animee like how irobot did. So it was a good sci-fi movie with a story and great action and a twist not sure how many or what one would count but I give it two thumbs up.

(NSFW) Actresses I like

Yes There Will be Nudity (not me or any men for that Matter) In this blog so if you are reading it at work or some place don't read it now.

It is tough to believe that it will be my Birthday in 3 months from Today. Or as I call it The Eve of Christmas Eve. Now the other day I was talking about acting and there are some actresses I like for what ever reason I like them. And here are some of them

Jill Wagner: You might know her from Car Ads or even Wipeout but what I first saw her in was Blade yes the TV Series and she was pretty good in that and makes a good host now.



image

image

There Is this show that is no Longer On called Pushing Daisies. I thought this was a great show I really did. Olive was a great character and I know I have heard Kristen do some voice work but not sure in what movie it was. Yes she is hot but she also does a good job doing what she is asked to do acting wise.



image

image

image

I'm a fan of X-men and the movies and Rogue was pretty hot Anna is now on a show that I love True Blood. She seems to have no problem with nudity at all now oh yeah.



image

image

image

Now it isn't a post unless a do a little bit of Porn. Jenna Jameson Has crossed over and done non porn roles and pulls it off pretty good, sorry I can't remember what I saw her in.


image

image

image

One Actress who I think gets over looked is Joey Lauren Adams. Maybe it is just that I'm a Kevin Smith fan. But I'm still not sure why that scene where it is Raining in Chasing Amy didn't get any award nominations she acted her ass off.


image

image

I Love Heroes and think that it is in the top five TV shows on currently. It doesn't Hurt that Hayden is pretty hot. This is not the first time she has played a Cheerleader either from what I understand.





image

I'm really Not sure if the first movie I saw her in was Tomb Raider or not but she sure is hot and I really thought she was Great in Beowoulf and Wanted.

image

image

image

image

Some of you might remember a Show named Dark Angel from some time ago. That is where I first saw Jessica Alba. I thought she was very good in that and great In Sin City.



image

image

Olive Wilde I'm a big fan off. I first liked her in the Show Skin, next was The O.C. , The Black Donnoly's (followed Heroes) and most recently house. Is she hot Yes. Did she have Different looks yes. but each character seems different but yet it is also still her.



image

image

image

Kate Beckinsale is an interesting example of someone I like based on her role. She was amazing in both Van Helsing and the Under World movies but that is all I know her from, that Genre is perfect for her I think.



image

image

image

image

image

So If you like Parody movies and some of them can get pretty bad sometimes then one person other then Carmen Electra who shows up in a lot of them is Anna Farris . I like that she can make fun of her self and I did see her in something that wasn't a spoof and she did as good of a Job as she was asked to do.



image

image

image

image

Carmen Electra is fun to watch and look at for sure. Not sure if she can act or not but she is able to do what she is asked to do and she is able to make fun of herself as well and does a great Job in those spoof movies. By the way Scary Movie is Based of Scream I have heard they are working on a new Screem Movie.



image

image

image

image

image

image

image

image

image

There are so many actresses that I like. A lot of it though is based on who they play like I loved Kim Bauer on 24. Then there is Toni Colet (that isn't right from the L word I think and Most recently very good on United States of Tera)

The Last person I will Feature in Pictures is Katey Segal. She was great on Married With Children. I think she did a voice on futurerama and now she is On Sons Of Anarchy. I wish I could list everyone I like but often they are people I know by face like hey that chick was awesome on Homicide and things like that.

Jenifer's Body

So I will be the first to admit I'm not a big Horror fan. But there are some movies I do like. Vampire movies are not horror movies but to me are like a different Genre. Yes some of them could be like 30 Days of Night. Or maybe they are a Genre like how you have Zombie movies and End of the world movies like 28 days and 28 weeks.

Yes I think Megan Fox is hot. Yes her body is amazing and she has some ink. But look at that great face and lovely eyes and nice Jet Black Hair and kinda tan skin. But she isn't the only reason I liked it.

With out giving anything away: I like the way the story was told. Yes there is a story it isn't all Just Gore. I like the action scenes. I like the acting. One thing that helped is there was some killer music in the movie that you could rock out to, it at least fit in the movie well. I also liked that the movie ended during the end credits I can't believe some people left. It wasn't like the credit rolled and then you got an ending later. Maybe they just didn't like the movie most of the people waited till the credit rolled in black to leave. Maybe Diablo Cody being part of the movie helped, I know she wrote it but don't know if she had anything to do with the making of the movie.

In terms of Preview stuff: Ninja Assassin Looks really good , they don't say it is but I think it is based on an Anime (I think I have it on Tape). They had a piece on where the wild things are. Even though it is so much of a chick movie I can't help it I want to see "whip It", part of the movie is about Roller Derby, and it has Ellen Page (juno) and Drew Berrymore Directs so it should be pretty good. Oh on a side note it is banked not flat track Roller Derby. I saw a poster for A Nightmare Before Christmas in 3D. That I have to go see.

MIA Part 2 2009

So As I'm sure A bunch of you know Music Is Art was on Saturday. It is tough to describe. Yes there are bands and art and a DJ area, and a kids area that turns into a Projection area. It was a lot of fun. But there are surprises some of I didn't see. For example I saw some Roller Girls painted up. So I could tell they had to a bunch more all some place together. Then bands came out of no where . Well here are some more pictures that might show what it was like.

Well that is all time will let me put up. I really need to like get a laptop, but I doubt it would have enough memory and then all those moblile plans are like around $40 a month. Maybe I should just get my own computer, but then I need a desk, How is time warner for internet?

MIA Part 1 Estrip

So Music Is Art on Saturday was a lot of fun and ran into some (e:peeps) so that added fun to the mix as well. I didn't get any art though. One person had some cool stuff but he was busy talking to someone about something and there was some other art I really liked. The Problem was no way to see a price. Hey maybe it was just on display. But I think if you are going to sell it you should have a price some where.

So Part 1 of MIA is going to be pictures that relate to (e:strip)

The Champagne Brunch

First of all I wanted to Thank (e:Drew) and (e:Janelle) for the invite to the Champagne Brunch. It was a really nice time. Sometimes it is weird to take pictures when there are people you don't know there.
Plus there was a lot of really good food.

On the way there I saw this place is going to open up. I wonder if it will stay open any longer then the other Asian Restaurants that opened there. Not sure if that is a bad spot for them or if they have been badly manged not really sure.



image

image

I have no pictures of anyone Drinking right out of the Bottle. I know some people look down on but I think it is ok. Slash Pulls it off Very Well and even though I have Never seen Absolutely Fabulous, (e:ladycroft) and (e:Theecarey) pulled it off pretty well before. I have done it my self before but not Like Slash Or Janis Joplin, it can be done with class and style. Hey and if there isn't much left someone needs to finish it off.

So here are the pictures , I can admit I had trouble with the light so some maybe blurry or fuzzy or have nasty shadows.

Sons Of Anarchy Tonight

So Tonight Is the Return of this show I like called The Sons Of Anarchy. I think it is a pretty good show. I've seen ads for it on the history Channel. Of course the one time it was on a show called Marked , it is a tattoo Show, this on e was about bike gangs. Then last night Gang land was about a biker gang , so the ads do make sense based on what was on at the time. I Have seen that Henry Rollins is going to be on this year, not sure if he will be like a regular or just on one episode. (side note why can I type faster then facebook can move?){I'm not really even fast}

But also Tonight is the return of 90210, and then Melrose Place gets to be a new show also. I admit last season I did watch some of 90210. It isn't as good as the old show. But how could it be it isn't the same thing really. What I can say is that Jenny Garth is still just as hot and doesn't even look any older, oh yeah. I guess I can try and watch Melrose place and see if it is any good. I never saw it before but we shall see but I won't be able to compare it to the original. But it is odd that 90210 is a CW Show, why not fox since I think they carried the old one, but maybe that is why. For those that may not know UPN and WB (warner brothers) combined and Made "The CW" They do have some shows that I might check out, like some new Vampire Show, But I have a feeling it may be on at the same time as something I all ready watch. That is what happened to 90210 It wound up being on at like the same time as like maybe House or Fringe or Bones, or Something along those lines.

This time of year is all ways kinda weird because you have shows coming back on. Then you have new shows. But they don't all start at the same time. For example Heroes starts in about 2 weeks, I love that show and think it is one of the best ones on TV. The point is that you really need to pay attention to when new shows come on and start up. This is also true since often shows switch nights.

Oh Yeah not to mention then You have Sports like Football and Baseball that will effect when shows come on. This is very true of Fox and sometimes it gets very confusing. Now most shows that I watch , I watch for the same reason people read: For the story. Yes the action and other things are part of it also. TV Wise this is an exciting and confusing time.

Miss Buffalo Wing Festival

So I started a post that I put in Draft mode in Internet Explorer but I can't find it using Safari. I couldn't upload any pictures no mater what I did I couldn't figure it out. But what I want to say before I post the pictures is that this year vs. two years ago when I last saw it things changed. The last time it was about wings and being pretty and you tasted wings and guessed hot,mild, med. and thing like that. This year there is one wing question followed by a Social Issues Question, the Winner is Miss Buffalo Wing for two days and then is Miss Buffalo and competes for Miss New York State and the Wing Festival is the Sponsor.

After the Intros they had some dancers and then went into the Talent portion I think it was all singing and dancing. I would have loved to see some one do impressions that would have been awesome but no luck, HA.



image

image

image

image

image

How Could I forget the St. Pualie Girl. She was amazing she talked about how knowing so many languages was a waste, and how the playmates where trying to look like her, it was a great time.

image

image

image

image

image

image

image

So then Next they Had the Evening wear portion and did the part where they asked them the two questions all in one. That then led to the presenting the awards to the runners up and the winners. You will notice the winner from last Year and That Sexy Beer Maden in those photos also.
