TSO non exclusive

So when I got to HSBC Arena they had signs all over the place about not taking pictures. The funny part was during the show they have this part where they ask everyone to bring out there cell phones, I wonder how many people thought to record that part. So I wasn't going to post pictures and just send them digitally to one person. But I thought I should share them here. One funny part was when they asked if there Night Castles CD will get finished first or will there be a McDonalds on mars it has really taken a long time. They do rock and have an amazing show some of the effects don't really transfer unless you are there so here are some pictures of the show (not in order from multi upload)

One of the things other then the music and the story telling and the talking to the crowd that I like about TSO is that there lights are part of the show. What I mean by that is at most concerts the lights change and there is pyro. But at a TSO show the metal that hold the lights move and make shapes and sometimes don't look like silver and so watching them move is part of the show. I really had a great time sorry I'm so late with pictures haven't had the time and re thought some stuff. One of the reasons I didn't put pictures up at first was because I remembered a Fan site for Metallica I used to visit that Metallica to some up said take down all the pictures or else. After some time he was able to put the pictures back up but couldn't have them label Metallica so I didn't want TSO to try and come after me but there are pictures on line and on webshots so I went for it.

TSO and Busy Week

So Sunday is the day when I watch a bunch of football and I will not see all of the Bills game or part of the 2nd game. The reason being is I'm going to see the early show of Trans Siberian Orchestra they have another show around 7 or 7:30. Yes I will admit that there show is kinda like a rock opera and they play Overly dramatic Christmas music and make it into a story but it is still so awesome.

Then next week being busy starts off with work. It is the end of the month and we busier then plus we lost some time that we couldn't make up last week from having two days of. On Wens. I'm going back to see another Sabres game that should be a great time and a lot of fun. Then on Thursday I'm going to see Warren Miller's playground at Shea's that should be a great time. I wonder if I could take pictures of the inside of Shea's as long as I don't take any pictures of the movie. Sometimes at the end of the week I don't have the energy (sometimes it is more emotional where I just feel like chilin) But on Friday there are some bands I want to see at the showplace that I learned about through Myspace, if I can make that it would be great but if not oh well.I hope everyone's weekend has been good and I hope everyone enjoys the rest of it.

Thanks & eve Sabres (long post)

Before I get into what I want to talk about and show pictures of I found something kinda interesting for you football fans or you who hate Time Warner.

Hopefully that show up as a link but if not the general Jist of it is that Jerry Jones the owner of the Cowboys isn't happy that his game vs. Greenbay won't be seen in Dallas since Time Warner doesn't have NFL Network and he is saying that people should drop them and go with AT&T who have some kind of dish program. I will admit I didn't think things could get uglier then it did before but this one takes the cake. I will admit I want to see that But I'm not going to drop cable service over one station besides I'll be at a sabres game I'm pretty sure.

Right now there are lots of people who are all ready done with "Black Friday" those people are intense they really are. I changed my user picture this tree was bought at walgreens last night I'm sure they have them at lots of other places. I figured since Thanksgiving is over go with the Tree as the user picture for now.

Thanksgiving Eve

So I started out by going to the Sabres game and it was a great game and had a lot of fun. Part of that might have been that the first 4 goals where at my end of the ice. Those pictures will be later on so as not to bore anyone who isn't into hockey (should I do this the other way since that would be for me and not the reader In tv this is called breaking the 3rd wall I think). I still had a great time even though I was cold.

I will admit I was very close to not going to Club Diablo but I did wind up going for the 1st time. There where some very sexy girls there but it wasn't very crowded but maybe that was just because there wasn't a band and it was still early. I don't go to very many bars so I have nothing to compare it to. But I love the decor and the pinball game. Here are some pictures (not in order but you get what it looks like).

I admit the video is hard to see but it was an Art & Body video of someone getting a Tattoo the screen is kinda behind a stage and at one point there was a lady dancing up there. I tried this energy drink called Daiblo that was very good and very fruity. I forgot to add that the female bartender seemed awesome she really did.

So walking from Diablo to the "Old Pink" or would that be the New "lightning Snowstorm" wasn't as bad as I thought. So I wound up losing my second bar virginity of the night. The chip strip was crazy packed I wasn't dressed right for any of those places, and I won't wait in line to get in and listen to dance music.
image
There is no sense of trying to put up the one of the huge Black limo cause on line you will never see, even in a printed picture it would be dark. So here are the pictures from "old pink" I think I should have stayed longer but it was so packed.

image
image
image
image
image
There is a little story about that Elvis picture. When it is so crowed it is tough to get a picture of your self but I almost got the best picture ever As I go take that picture this really hot thin tall tanned (if memory serves correct) tells me to take a picture of Elvis so I do. I was going to and in the process so I do and she then kisses me on my check and as she does takes a picture. To bad it didn't come out with her it just came out as my hoddie and a crowd. This girl seemed really trashed but in a good way. She was kinda dancing rubbing on her friend and then she was lifting her self up with her arms over the bar and pushing her tits towards the bar tender it was really hot. Not to mention a few min before we where all crunched up at the bar it was very tight between a few ladies, guys freak me out a bit being smusmed by ladies is kinda fun. The reason I left was after I used the bathroom I wanted another drink but couldn't see how to get back to the bar it was just to packed.

I will either edit this and ad more or make a part two in a few minutes my sis is balling her head off and when I go see what she wants it will be something very stupid. Ok this time I was wrong it wasn't stupid they where showing stuff from a mall on the news, but the reason she called was to get the cat from its little bed and to give it to her in her bed so that is ok so back to the post. So to sum up I did like "The old Pink" and hopefully will return there soon or atleast again.

Thanksgiving was kinda weird watched my sis run in the turkey trot. Some of the costumes people came up with where interesting. It sure was cold I noticed what seemed like a lot of ladies as Pochontis or at least as Indian Girls, very nice most of them where cute. I think it is cool to dress up. There where a couple people who ran with a shopping cart with a person in it.

I will admit I saw a lot of great getups that I didn't get pictures of. Thanksgiving was different in that we just had a lunch and didn't visit anyone.

image
image

Of course I did watch some football and had a good time watching it. I was sleeping through some of the second game. But I did wake up and have some Dinner at my place.

image
image
image
image
What an exciting dinner but it was good. It was a good day. Oh yeah and the tree we got.

image
image
image
image

If anyone is still reading this then wow. Well I guess it isn't really to long just seems like a lot of stuff to me. This is where if you are not a hockey fan it gets kinda dull. When it gets to hockey pictures it is allways tough cause I'm not sure how many to put up and what ones will look good so I guess I'll go with a few groups of them.

I think that is enough of the game, I kinda lost what pictures I put up and what ones I didn't. I do have to share one funny thing. When they annouced the the scaracthes they said Emery I was like you can't do that cause then there is no back up to the goalie and then Emery played, I was surprised. Hope everyone enjoys the rest of their weekend.

Quick Thanksgiving

I will hopefully do a full post with pictures of the game and the couple clubs I went to and my thanksgiving lunch and dinner once I download the pictures. This is just to say that I hope everyone had a great holiday and that they enjoy (ed) "Black Friday" . I also hope that everyone has a great long weekend. Not sure what I'm going to do. I kinda might want to look into sabres tickets but I think I'll just watch the game at home on Friday and go see Hitman (never played the game but the movie looks pretty sweet. The other movies I want to see is that one called "no country for old men" it looks awesome I hope it goes to the regal elmwood but hopefully I don't miss it like I did with "Across the universe" I also want to see "enchanted" that is the Disney movie where the storytale charachters come into the real world. I don't think it opens yet but I'm also looking forward to seeing that golden compass movie that looks really good. Ok i guess this is were I end my quick little post.

Miller Sabres Turkey trot

First of all for you skiers out there I thought I would remind you that at sheas they are having a showing of Warren Miller's newest movie, it was a lot of fun going to see one last year. I think it is Nov 29th.
image

The night before Thanksgiving I'm going to the Sabres game. It should be a good time, I would love to see them Beat Ottawa. I'm not sure if they are good enough to but it will still be a good time. I'm thinking after the game I might go check out Club Diablo they are having some kind of Party for Art And Body it is a Tattoo shop. Then early Thanksgiving I have to wake up and take pictures of the sis since she will run in the turkey trot. She wants me to but there is no way I can I'm not in good enough shape to.

Then on the 25th I'm going to TSO that will be a good time, they allways are. Then A week after the Ottawa Sabres game I'm going to see them play the St. Louis Blues that is the day before the Snowboarding movie.

I hope everyone has a nice long weekend and enjoys thanksgiving mine will be watching Football and relaxing after I wake up early.

Is Global Warming good for the earth?

Most of the time in movies they use this one type of monkey I think in Baseball they call it a rally monkey and it is cute and adorable so it gets away with doing bad deads. The most recent movie I saw this in was National Lampoon's Dorm Daze 2. They are on a cruise and as in most of those movies there was a bunch of hot young things in the nude. But that wasn't what I was writing about. I thought monkey's stealing stuff was bullshit well untill I saw this article on Yahoo's new page today.


Thieving monkeys 'out of control' in northeast India
--> BEGIN STORY BODY -->

Sat Nov 17, 3:08 AM ET
--> end storyhdr -->

GUWAHATI, India (AFP) - Troupes of monkeys are out of control in India's northeast, stealing mobile phones and breaking into homes to steal soft drinks from refrigerators, lawmakers in the region have complained.

"Monkeys are wreaking havoc in my constituency by taking away mobile phones, toothpastes, sipping coke after opening the refrigerators," Hiren Das told Assam state's assembly.

He said the primates were "even slapping women who try to chase them".

"It is a cause of serious concern in my area, with more than 1,000 such simians turning aggressive by the day," fumed Goneswar Das, another legislator representing Raha in eastern Assam.

Assam's wildlife minister, Rockybul Hussain, said the state government has formed a panel to study the problem.

Because of shrinking forest cover, monkeys have increasingly moved into cities elsewhere in India as well.

Last week, around two dozen people were hurt after monkeys rampaged through a New Delhi neighbourhood.

Last month, the deputy mayor of Delhi died when he fell from his balcony after being attacked by monkeys.

Efforts to drive out the animals is complicated by the fact that devout Hindus view them as an incarnation of Hanuman, the monkey god who symbolises strength.



If you go to yahoos page above maybe they have more information.

Well above is where the journal stopped on myspace but then I thought some more. I didn't mean to think this was just going to be a piece of news. But then I remembered about another thing in India about how the Elephants would find that wine and get drunk and go on a rampage. Not because they are mean but because they get drunk. I wonder if they really like just the taste or if they prefer the getting drunk part, maybe someone could do a study on that for one of those nature channels.

The reason for these troubles and others like deer in Amherst , or mountain lions or bears eating people is that Habitats for animals are getting smaller. If you believe in creation or evolution it doesn't matter they where hear before we where so we are moving into their space not the other way around. Some would argue that we are better then they are so it is there lose, not a bad point really. But what those people forget about is that there is a balance in nature. Mankind has been throwing things out of balance for a long time. Making the air and water dirty over all is the biggest one. But as more trees and rain forests get cut down then we don't even have the things that in nature can get rid of the carbon monoxside (sp? whats new). I won't get into the fact that most of us eat more then we need to and have done things like shot Buffalo for sport and not even use the meat or skin for anything. There are places (yes I want to visit them) like China and Japan that are very overcrowded. Humans are slowly killing the earth. Some people might say we are not causing global warming. They have a right to that thought. Even if we aren't that doesn't make my point any less.

Global warming is good for the earth. It just isn't good for humans. I will admit that I don't have the science background to know what will happen in theory. I don't think the science people really do. We know that if the ice caps melt then they will turn into water in some form. No one really knows how much the water will rise. First of all when water expands when it frezes. secondly how much of that ice will evaporate and turn into rain and where will it rain. How will the changing water temps effect the weather. You can make all kinds of gueses and use science but that is all they are. But what we can assume is that water levels will rise and some land will be lost my Cali maybe it will be greenland, Japan or Texas. But what I assume is that there will be a loss of life and land that is very high. Maps will have to be re drawn. Who knows maybe the change in climate will cause the us to be a lot smaller and it will rain regularly in places known as deserts. But what I'm pretty sure about is that the earth will at some point will re balance the equation. I just hope that the people who live through it and smart enough to record everything and learn from man kinds mistakes. Hey but maybe global warming is just a way for people to make us fear and then control us economicly, wouldn't be the first time.

Beowulf

So today I went to the first showing of Beowulf. Lets get to the important stuff first the nudity. Both Beowulf and just blanked on Aglenia Jolie's role. The good and the bad news for some and the other way for others is that: Beowulf is naked but there are no dick shots. They do like how they did in Austin Powers (but not in jest) where they had someone head or elbow blocking the shot. The fighting scenes move to fast for you to see anything as he flips but I'm guessing it was shot so that when it comes out on dvd you wouldn't be able to see anything either. Now Angelina on the other hand wow her boobs look good they are really amazing. I'm not used to seeing that ones that good unless I'm watching a movie at home by myself. Yes some of them where kinda covered in gold but they are amazing and they did have front shots. Now to the rest of the movie not that I can concentrate on it anymore. I like that there was a lot of action and still a very good story. I don't know how they do the art of it. I know that the actors at least act all the stuff out and do the motions. I don't know if they film them and then put the art over them or draw them out. However they do it it look very realistic and there is a lot of depth in all the scenes. I can't imagine how cool it would look in 3D or on and IMAX screen. The other thing I'm not sure of is if things where filmed the same for both versions or if things are added to the 3D film version or if it was filmed so with glasses the film is enhanced. In any event I really enjoyed it and had a great time.


I Just wanted to ad that the above link or line of text for anyone who is interested should lead to my webshots page I put up most of my city hall and downtown pictures and put up the Halloween pictures up and they should be in order as well.

City Hall Medical Campus

So when I saw this picture on the art voice I picked Up it reminded me of (e:ladycroft) and then it also reminded me of a couple (e:strip) parties very quickly. For some of you newer peeps you might not really have an idea why but there will be things for some of you a little further down in this post.


image

So today I went to the DMV to renew my non drivers ID and after that I went to city hall and Froze. The reason I froze was that I went up to the observation deck and I think my hand went numb. These are not all the pictures I took. I"m not sure how they will look on here and how much detail the small building will have but here goes.

So as I'm on my way to "the medical Campus" area I got to have a fun time about 20 feet from Hyatt's. Out of no where someone calls to me. They ask me "If I'm all right" i say "i'm good" if you don't know the lingo he was asking if I want drugs. But then is where I lost the guy on lingo. He said something about him being a "Pill Popper" I don't remember what I said exactly but then he followed that up with "I'm not a pill popper either". Again very strange. Well here are some pictures from around that area (again not in exact order)

Afterwards I thought about going to the Anchor bar but didn't feel like it. One of these pictures is to show a church and a certain house some of you should know. I didn't know that stuff that grows on houses turned color I thought it was allways green I guess I was wrong.

Hopefully everyone has a great weekend. With the holidays and lots of things coming up this might be the last crazy weekend so everyone should enjoy it. Hopefully I will see Baowolf on sat. I do have a question in High School we read a story of the same name. All I remember is that it was written in really old and really hard to understand old english and only our teacher understood what was going on, is there any connection between that story and this movie? oh yeah and the graphics look amazing also.

Best TV shows kinda

I'm not saying that I watch to much TV or not enough. I'm not saying that there is written in stone. I'm not saying there are really 10 top shows. I'm not including sports or sports related shows. I the writers strike might effect when these shows are on, oh yeah I'm also not counting "Adult Swim"

Best 10 TV shows:
1. 24
2. Heroes
3. House
4. Pushing Daises
5. Miami ink , LA ink, Tattoo wars and looking forward to London Ink
6. A shot at love with Tila Tequila
7. Bones
8. South Park
9. Prison Break
10. Journeyman
11. The Simpsons and Family Guy
12. Weed and Californication
13. Reel Sex and any other sex series on HBO
14. Boston Legal (yeah it and 6 should maybe be flipped but oh well)

I am also looking forward to see the new Terminator TV show. Not sure what it will be about other then it is called the Sarah Connor chronicals so I think it might be more of a spin-off on the movies.

The large house in front of the carriage house burned down in the 70's. An article I found about the property cited that 'Matthew' on this site had posted a series of photos called 'Lost Linwood" (article was from 2012). I thought maybe Matthew was still on this site or perhaps someone could help me find the photos. I'd love to see the original house and carriage house
