Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2012 Series

Nickelodeon is putting out a new "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" series.  When I first heard about this, I didn't know what to expect.  I grew up with the original series that started in 1987.  I loved it and had a lot of the action figures.  When they brought back the series in the early 2000s, I wasn't into it.  It didn't feel the same as the series did when I was a kid.

Watch the trailer for the new series and leave your thoughts on what you think about it.

When I saw a trailer on TV, I didn't like it because of the animation and the voices.  It just isn't the same like the original.  Maybe I'm spoiled because the original series was way better.  Maybe I might be proven wrong and it is pretty decent.  But we'll see.

In this day in age a lot of things don't measure up like back in the day.  This new "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" series might fall victim to that.  With the trailers, I am projecting that same stereotype.  It's not that I'm going out of my way to do that.  It's just that I'm getting this feeling that this series won't be the same.  But maybe I'll be proven wrong because sometimes that happens.  Maybe I should keep an open mind. Sometimes that can be hard.

What are your thoughts and feelings on this series before it airs?

Concert Bucket List

I have a bucket list for concerts.  Some have a general bucket list for everything.  Not me.  I have one for concerts.  I will not be able to cross all of them off.  But, earlier this month, I was able to cross one off of it.  No, I haven't been to the concert yet.  I was able to cross it off because I bought the ticket to the concert on September 28.  I have been waiting to see this band for such a long time.  It is the one and only RUSH!

This concert is going to be so bad ass.   I got a floor seat. It is in the 11th row.  Rush has been a favourite band of mine for years.  I'd never think in my lifetime would I ever seen them.  But thankfully that is no longer the case.  This something I'll never forget.

How often do you get the chance to remove a band of this caliber off your bucket list or in my case, my concert bucket list?  For myself, I don't get the chance that often. So when I do, I take the opportunity too.  This will be a once in a lifetime event for me.  It will be awesome.

I don't know what to expect considering they are touring in support of their current album.  But I hope they also play their classics and one of my all-time favourites by them which is "One Little Victory."  It will be so awesome if they did.

This concert can't come soon enough!  I'm so pumped!
