Smackdown vs Raw 2010 PS3


Smackdown vs Raw 2010 PS3

Tonight was the first time in a long while that I played video games. I definitely lack skill playing video games but I still include a little gaming in my long list of immature pleasures. The beauty of a lot of video games is that you can play against the computer set at a low skill level. This way I do not have to face the humiliation of losing badly to a real live opponent. Even if the computer opponent beats you on a rookie skill level no one needs to know.
With that being said I love my Sony PS3. It is a very versatile console that I make a lot of use of. I have probably only scratched the surface of all the uses one can make of this device. This evening I used my PS3 to play the video game, Smackdown vs Raw 2010. I especially enjoy the ring entrances of the wrestlers in this edition of the game. What was even more rewarding, however, was using Triple H to give a sound beating to Rey Mysterio in a first blood match.

The World Is Yours


The World is Yours by Motorhead

The World is Yours is the most recent album by Motorhead. This band has never sat back on its laurels and put out a record that they didn’t believe in. Their most current CD release is no exception. The musical skills of this band have kept progressing over the years. The World Is Yours is a hard rocking album. Lemmy and the boys have refused to compromise their principles or change their music over the years. In my opinion this is why they have maintained such a loyal following. The songs on this album are all inspired by Lemmy’s philosophy of life and Lemmy doesn’t really care whether you agree with him or not. Lemmy’s attitude is that the world is a pretty awful place most of the time but that isn’t going to prevent him from getting his kicks and making the most of it.

Instinctive Training


Instinctive Training

As my main goal is to try to lose some body fat the majority of my training is now aerobic. The great July weather that we have enjoyed in Winnipeg has allowed me to do my aerobic program outdoors. At my age I have found by trial and error that exercising for short blocks of time a few times per day works better for me. When I first got back to my conditioning program I would train for longer periods of time. The drawback to this approach was that I found recovery to be very difficult. Using this approach I would often wake up the next day feeling like I had been run over by a truck. During the day I would feel exhausted, weak and sore. In other words my first day would be devoted to exercising vigorously and the next day would involve rest and recovery. After a few weeks I didn’t find this system to be viable. I did not want to spend every second day tired and in pain, I knew that an adjustment to my training routine would be benefici

Lemmy DVD


Lemmy DVD Ultimate Badass Edition

This two DVD set is a must for any fan of Motorhead. Motorhead frontman and bass player Lemmy Kilmister is the featured star of this video. Although Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee are stars in their own right, Lemmy is the legend and the icon of Motorhead.
Motorhead are one of the few bands that are still around after thirty years and who refuse to change with the times. With Motorhead what you see is what you get and what you get is great. I had the distinct pleasure of seeing Motorhead play a concert in my home town of Winnipeg this year. The show was excellent and Motorhead did not disappoint. Shortly after the concert I purchased the “Lemmy” Ultimate Badass Edition DVD. This DVD set is both entertaining and informative. My favorite part was the interaction between Lemmy and his son. Special guests such as Dave Grohl and Metallica also appear on these DVDs. As much as I enjoyed this video I must say that I liked the previously released British documentary Live Fast Die Old more. The reason for this was that the British documentary also highlighted the darkness in Lemmy’s life.

Rick: Loyal listeners. I’d just like to inform you that Private Enns and General Kane have broken into the control room and have kidnapped Mick Russell for the second time today.

Dwight: Yeah, and right when Mick was getting to the good part of the story. If Mick escapes and returns again later this evening we won’t have time for him on our show.

Rick: That’s right listeners because we already have Floyd the barber booked for an interview this evening.

Dwight: Hang on. I think we have a caller on the line.

Floyd the barber: You guys better not cancel my interview! Do you think your listeners want to hear some bozo go on about flying saucers, aliens and getting horse tranquilizer shot up his butt? Don’t you think they’d rather listen to an exclusive interview with a great actor like Floyd the barber instead?

Rick: Probably not but don’t get your shirt in a knot Floyd. Your interview is still on for this evening.

Act 5 Scene 2.

Narrator: The army truck arrives at the Air Force Base. General Kane takes Mick to an interrogation room.

Mick: Get these handcuffs off me. I’m a law abiding citizen.

General Kane: Yeah, right! A law abiding citizen who hijacks a city vehicle and sics a Rottweiller on two dog catchers. Both of those are felony offenses in this state.

Mick: Felonies? What do you call kidnapping a civilian and throwing him in the back of an army truck full of aliens?

General Kane: Protecting our national security.

Private Enns : What were you thinking, Mick? You go on the radio telling the listeners a half baked story about flying saucers and aliens. You scared the daylights out of them!

Mick: It’s the truth!

Under the Dome


Under the Dome

I have often said that there is much more to the writings of Stephen King than an attempt to scare the reader out of his or her wits. I have no doubt that Mr. King enjoys terrifying people but there is much more to this artist than a flare for horror. Stephen King understands people and their individual pathologies better than most professional therapists. Stephen King’s major talent is to make his fictional characters seem so real that you can imagine them walking down the street in front of your house.
The master of characterization is in top form once again in his novel, Under the Dome. After you have read a chapter or two it will be hard to get Big Jim Rennie out of your head, Talk about a larger than life character. Big Jim reminds me of JR from the Dallas television show. In other words he is the consummate villain. Third Selcctman Rennie is tall, overweight, mean and devious and craves total power over the residents of Chester Mills. The strange part is that I have some admiration for this character. He is one of those rare individuals who is eager and willing to take charge of a situation when no one else is. Big Jim Rennie is also supremely confident of his own abilities. He believes that it is God’s will for him to save Chester’s Mill from its terrible crisis.

Hoss: Ha1 ha! ha! And then he says something about a nurse giving him a shot of horse tranquilizer in the butt.

Private Enns: They’re talking about Mick, General.

General Kane: I know. So where is this guy now?

Private Enns: Yeah, and don’t you guys have a van or something to put the dogs in after you catch them?

General Kane: They don’t need one. They don’t catch any dogs. The dogs chase them into the dumpster. Ha! Ha! Ha!

Harvey: Look you guys. This is no laughing matter. The guy drove off with our van.

Private Enns: I don’t get it. There’s two of you and just one of him.

Hoss: Well, it’s kind of a long story. You tell it Harvey.

Harvey: Well, while Hoss and me were trying to pull the guy into the truck the keys fell out of Hoss’s pants. Then the guy grabbed the keys and let the Rottweiler out the back.

General Kane: And then the dog chased you guys into the dumpster.

Hoss: Yeah, that’s pretty much what happened.

Private Enns: You guys are hilarious. You’re funnier than Floyd the Barber on the Andy Griffith Show. You guys should tell your story on Rick and Dwight’s radio show.

General Kane: I have a feeling that’s where Mick is right now.

Roswell 1947 Act 5 Scene 1

Narrator: When Private Enns and General Kane pull up in front of the radio station they see the dog catcher’s van. For the second time in one day the two air force men break down the door to the control room.

Mick: Well, like I was saying, these two army dudes kidnapped me. They threw me in the back of their truck. I rode in the back with three dead aliens and one live one. Then they dropped me off at the hospital where a nurse gave me a shot of horse tranquilizer in the butt. Whoa! Help! The Two army dudes are here again!
