The Brawl

On Thursday I'm going to see the Bisons game. It is an event called the Ballpark brawl. After the Baseball game they will have wrestling matchs and set up a ring on the field. When I went on line today at the bisons site it said that they will have two matches around noon outside of the ballpark in a set up ring, I have to check that out I just hope the weather is nice, I have no idea what happens if it rains. I don't know who all the wrestlers are but I know who some of them are and they will have some wrestling legends there also. Another event I'm looking forward to at Dunntire Park is the Chicken Wing Festival and that is Sept. 1 and 2 and is a good time. I wish I could remember where I had that great tasting wing last year that was an italian wing of some kind that was very good. I guess there will be some live music and stuff for the kids this year from what I have read online.

The Fair:Animals

So On Wen. I went to the fair and to see Moto X freestyle. The plan was on Thursday to go get my pictures done and pick them up and download them and up load them here but due to and unplanned rest that didn't happen and I never made it to the square either. But then I went back to the fair on Friday for the 12 stones and Daughtry concert and had a great time. So then yesterday I saw the Bus Demolition and figure 8 racing and had a good time. I have to admit the figure 8's are really fun to watch, not just for the collisions but for all the near misses it is really a good idea for the people watching. In terms of pictures I thought that maybe instead of doing them by days I can do them by type so I thought the best place to start would be with the Animals. I will be the first to admit that I don't know much about why different kinds of cows look different or what kinds of birds all of these are. But maybe some of you will enjoy them. I do have to admit that when I first saw rabbits in cages it did kinda bother me. But this year the cages don't seem so small.

I"m not sure why Birds and Rabbits where in the same building, the only thing I can think of is that it is because they where all caged.

this next set of pictures is from 2 different days. There was a new thing where you could pet a sting ray, my sister touched one but there was no way I was going to. Those aren't the only animals they had there but they where the main attraction.

I Don't think it was there the entire time of the fair but I'm not sure on Friday i noticed a place called Nickel City Exotics. I have to admit paying the dollar it cost to see all the animals was worth it, what a deal. Some of them where really active and it was just fun to watch them run around.

It is at this point that I think I will include animals that are in the Parade that they have at about 5pm. I just wish I was Quick enough to grab a picture of the birds they release at the start of the parade. They won't all be parade animals but they will be included.

I'm not sure how well you can see it or not but on those last two shots that is a butterfly I wish I was quick enough to catch it flying. There may be a part 2 to this of pictures from the fair itself and not just the animals we shall see. I hope everyone had a great weekend.

the Fair

So First of all to the two (e:peeps) I missed in chat I'm sorry. It isn't an excuse but often there is no bing on my end of (e:strip) or sometimes when chat is running it doesn't update all at once you get a bunch of lines after nothing. Well onto the quick post. I went to America's Fair Yesterday and had a good time and saw the animals and a couple shows. There where supposed to pictures in this post but I didn't have time due to an unplanned nap to get them processed and picked back up tonight. Last night I saw the freestylemx tour and had fun. My pictures cause of where I was sitting in relationship to a support beam and the speed of the motorcycles didn't come out to good but I still had a good time. Friday it is off to see Daughtry and then Saturday is the Bus Demolition Derby so I'm guessing fair pictures will go up on sunday. One show I really like is the peeking (the place not looking in a windwo) acrobats. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

MIA At the Fair

First of all I did have a good time at MIA. But I also have to admit that it should have been in the city. But I blame the city for that not MIA. But to me it looked like MIA is the one that paid for it. Some of my pictures looked really dark on line but came out ok when printed. There is no way I can post all my pictures but hopefully I put up enough to give a sense of MIA with out making it dull or so that no one cares. Yeah this is a post that isn't about or for me at all. Some of the pictures will be of the fair grounds and two pictures I plan on putting up will be of bestbuy and at&t. I will be at the fair on Wends. and Fri. for events oh yeah SAT. also (FMX, Daughtry, Bus Derby). So maybe I'll put up some more pictures after some of those days but not sure yet.

Music wise there was some music I really liked. One of them was "The Heads" they have been in the news for being the kids who played on the roof of there school. During their set they reavaled that they have two drummers.

I don't remember all the history about the WSW Rock band. But if I remember correctly At West Seneca West a history teacher started like a rock club and they formed a band they are pretty good to.

Agent Me was who I saw next but I can't tell if the pictures will look good or not so I won't post any. The same thing is true with Amungus. They performed on a screen and then had people sing, dance and rap in front of it. So it was very hard to get a picture that had both the screen and the person performing in front of it clear at the same time. What I will say is with out Robie live there it lost a lot of its flair. No disrespect to the performers but with out the Fire dancers it just wasn't the same. In fact when Amungus stayed on a lot of people cleared out. It also seemed taped I was hoping they would figure out how to do a live feed so that was disapointing. So I will finish up with pictures of the fair lit up.

MIA Saturday

On Saturday I'm going out to the Fair Grounds to see Music Is Art. I know it won't be as good as previous years or at least that is what I assume but I'll still have a good time and take a bunch of pictures. Like previous years most of the bands I don't know there music. But part of it is to go see music I don't know and see other art as well. Last year I bought a couple of awesome pieces of art. I wish that they where having it for two days and in the city but I also understand that, that isn't and wasn't going to be a reality for this year. I hope it can go back to how it should be for next year. I'm sure I'll have a lot of pictures to post on Sunday or monday. The thing that is weird is that I have gotten so much more info (not that I can remember it) at their myspace page. The entertainment I think was listed in Sunday's paper if I remember correctly. In any event It will be a good time and If you are one of those people who don't really dig the fair Saturday is a good day to go and do the Fair and MIA. Also I believe at the Fair Grounds Grandstand the band Foghat performs for free. Ok hope everyone has a great weekend and Go bills!!!!!!!

Busy Aug.

I'm not sure why but it all ways seems that of the Summer months August is the busiest. First of all this weekend is the Summer X games not that I'm there but I'm watching them. Then Monday I'm Going to RAW at HSBC Arena. Aug 11th is MIA at the Erie County Fair. Also at the fair on the 15th is Freestyle Motor Cross then on that Friday Daughtry and 12 Stones and then Sat. is the Bus Derby. The bus derby isn't only buses smashing each other but that is the reason I'm going. The thing that is nice about the fair is that there is things for everyone. If you don't like the rides then you might like the games, or shows, or animal things or the shopping. That's right the shopping. There are vendors selling all kinds of stuff. Then that next week I'm going to see Margaret Cho on the 21st. I hope she is funny, some of her stuff is ok and then some it if is super funny. A few days later I'm going to the ball park brawl. That is Wrestling Matches following a Bisons game it is fun. Granted a lot of the wrestlers I have never heard of but some of them I have and are fans of. I don't think I'm going to make it see "We will Rock You" I can't figure out a time to go. But who knows maybe I'll get lucky and get up to Toronto again before summer ends.

Goodyear? Football

Today when I got home I saw the goodyear blimp in the sky over the west side so I took a few photos that I will post. Not sure how good they are. I went to their site and went to a couple News sites and none of them mentioned it being here. Does anyone know if it is here for a reason or was it passing through to get to some place else? I know that when it stays in one place there is some reason for it but it was on the move when I saw it. Hopefully if I watch the News tonight maybe they might know. Also did any other (e:peeps) see it.

The reason for my original post was to let people know about some sports that are coming up this weekend. I got an email saying that the NFL network will be Carrying A footballl game I believe on Sunday it should be the Hall of Fame game. Also on Thursday night the TV Coverage of the X-Games begings. Sometimes the sports change so I'm not sure what all the events are but watching them is allways fun. If there are any racing fans out there I'm pretty sure they will still be doing rally car. Then they allways have skateboard, BMX and Motocross events of some kind. I'm sure EXPN.com has more info and maybe even espn.com may also.

Carvings at City Hall



Before the square on Thursday I checked out some carvings that they have currently in the circle in front of City Hall. They have some that need support and then there is one that you can guess who it is. I guessed wrong according to the e-mail I got back. Here are the pictures I took.

Well I went to use the multiple upload tool and when I opened up my pictures none of them showed up so something is wrong there.

Garden Walk and Simpsons

First of all any of you who might be reading this should go to (e:pmt)'s get together it starts about now. I want to go but really can't.
1). I have nothing to cook or to bring
2). I have something I'm going to tonight
It was nice to run into (e:PMT) and (e:tinypliny) at the Garden Walk today. I wish I had the time to post pictures hopefully some time Sunday. Again I didn't think to take any pictures of them (yeah bad habit I know). I only saw a couple streets but what I saw was pretty cool or at least some of it was. In terms of pictures I also want to post the ones I took of the wood carvings before the square on Thursday.

I saw The Simpsons movie. I really like it. I can't say anything really without giving anything away. So I will just say that I liked that they still fit in Fox, and Disney Bashing. I also liked that they had some stuff in the credits. There are other parts that I really liked but if I explained them I would give away parts of the story.
