The Misfits...again.



If you are looking for something different, fun and just cool. You can't go wrong with Misfits. I was uncertain in what to expect. My first impression was that it was going to just be about kids serving time doing community service. And then it turns into a Superhero show. Well, not "Superhero" in the same sense of what we are force fed here in America. One sets up everything as you would expect. Freak of nature event turns 5 Kids into something else all together. Definitely give this series a shot. I like it.

The Long Way Down Job

I'm glad to see Leverage is back, but the season premiere for Season 4 was a bit lackluster to me. The twist that usually ends pretty much every episode of the series was pretty good though. But overall, The Long Way Down Job was a bit of a let down.

FYI, Megan Fox was the only reason I was even thinking about checking out the first 2 Transformers;)

I've never been a fan of Michael Bay. Personally, I think he is a horrible film maker prone to having a serious hard-on for explosions and car chases. Sure, the dude makes nice eye candy, but at a cost: no story. I have yet to get around to watching any of the Transformer films. I hear a lot of negative stuff and that it's more of the same things that I despise about Bay that I don't know if I will ever see them. But what I have heard is that most people are saying that T3 is the best of the bunch. What that means, I don't know. Best eye candy? Certainly not the best "Plot-driven, character piece".

I'm planning to buy Batman AA again since Batman Arkham City will soon be available.

AA has been a blast playing again. I can't wait for AC to come out.

Pilot

The first episode was just ok to me. A little slow to my liking. I get that they are setting up all the characters, who they are and whatnot, so there really isn't going to be a whole lot of action. But if it doesn't pick up soon, this show may not be long for this world. I will stick around for a few more episodes and see how it progresses.

Icons: The DC Comics & Wildstorm Art of Jim Lee (2010)




Art by Jim Lee

This book literally took a week to get through. There's just so much goodness to be found within the pages of Icons: The DC Comics & Wildstorm Art of Jim Lee that it will keep you glued to it. When I first heard about the book, in my mind I thought it was going to be some tiny book full of covers and pin-ups. Boy, was I ever wrong. When I finally had this in my hands, I was like a little kid opening up the biggest present on Christmas morning.

That's right. Biggest. This book is HUGE. I would even say it can be used as a weapon if need be. It's THAT heavy. Page after awesome page, you get to see Jim Lee's art on glossy paper and twice the size from that of a regular comic book. This is how you do a coffee table book right. Along with all his Wildstorm and DC art, you get insight to pretty much everything inside the book.

One thing you need to know though is that none of his work from Marvel is represented. So, no X-Men stuff and no Punisher. Had his Marvel run been included, it would have easily made this a 20 Star book. Even with this unfortunate omission, this is a book that belongs in everyone's personal library.

Get it. You will NOT be disappointed at all.

It sucks that my game save was corrupted and I had to re-do the Hard Mode all over. To my surprise, I haven't been p*ssed off having to replay it from the start. It's actually been hella fun and a lot easier because I had figured out what I was doing wrong. I'm taking my time going through it this time around instead of just blowing through like I was before. The only thing I can say that I'm p*ssed off about is knowing that I have to do Shock and Awe again after all that time of failing it to finally succeeding.

Bah!

Currently heading off to Croc's Lair. And then............  ;)

Books / Seal Team Six - Howard Wasdin

Seal Team Six (2011)




I had high hopes for Seal Team Six as I really wanted to learn more about the Unit that went in and capped Osama Bin Laden once and for all. But as much as I wanted to like the book, Howard Wasdin, the author, came off very full of himself. At times, I really thought that I was reading another book by Jose Canseco. I get that Navy SEALs have to have a certain mind set in order to do the things they do, and I commend and respect the things he did to protect America and the less fortunate in other countries and that being one of the elite will obviously inflate ones ego. But here, after awhile, it really became a bit much to take.

Having said that, this book was just average at best. He is not a very good writer and a lot of what he has to say seems very off the cuff and not thought out very well. There is a lot of dead space throughout the book that just didn't hold my attention much. That's not to say the entire book is bad. When he gets into recounting certain OP Missions does it begin to pick up, the biggest one of course being the hunt for Mohamed Farrah Aidid, the warlord in Somalia. If you are unaware of who this is, just go rent Black Hawk Down.

The other interesting stuff to be found within the book obviously centers on training to become a SEAL and enduring Hell Week and what he and his teammates had to go through. Amid all the carnage of his sniper kills, I was surprised to find a few moments of levity when it came to humor, like when suffering from sleep deprivation, Wasdin while in the Mess Hall was ordered by his CO to go and kill the deer in the corner, only to find out he was about to attack and kill a tray rack. Dude definitely needs to get some sleep.

I really can't recommend this to anyone, unless you absolutely need to read everything there is to know about SEALs or military or whatever. Personally I will never read this book again.

Hahahahahahaha. Cameron Maybin draws a 3-Ball walk which turned out to be a HUGE deal given the fact that from that walk he scored the only run of the game as the Padres won 1-0.

Boo-ya!!  ;D
