  Overall La La Land Records wins again over the original CBS Records release. CBS Records release isn't remastered so it can be rough on your CD player's speakers because unremastered CDs are hard to hear and make you turn up your volume louder causing speakers to blow out.

The Twilight Movies are Bad

  I like bad movies. so I have done some research about the Twilight Saga due to hearing fans of the books hate the movies because they sucked. So I looked up all four of them up on and was surprised to find out that the user ratings were just slightly higher than ratings for SyFy original movies. That is really a shocker. So after I saw the user ratings I went and bought Breaking Dawn Pt. 1 on Blu-Ray and New Moon on Blu-Ray as well. I don't plan on watching them in order.
  First up was New Moon. The acting of the whole cast except for Bella's dad was atrocious. Kristen Stewart was a basket case on her own. Due to the fact that she constantly had her mouth open and was breathing out of her mouth the whole time instead of through her nose. plus her acting was worse than the acting in Troll 2. Robert Pattinson was no box of chocolates either. I saw him in Water for Elephants and thought his acting was terrific. He is the exact opposite in the Twilight series, bland and boring. Now Taylor Lautner was just as bad of an actor, worse than his role as Shark Boy in The Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl which is another terrible movie.
  The Plots are laughable and and just ridiculous combined with terrible cut rate acting. I never read the books and don't plan to read them anytime soon. I can see why fans of the books hate the movies. I guess it's true that the book is always better than the movie. Another thing that shows how bad these movies are is that each has had a different director for all 4 movies and 3 different composers for all 4, with the exception of Carter Burwell who scored Twilight and Breaking Dawn Pt 1 and the upcoming Breaking Dawn Pt 2. The film scores are more interesting than the actual movies.
  A great way to enjoy these movies is to buy the Rifftrax for them. You can buy them at
You'll laugh your head off at the commentary that they give for the terrible films. It's like Mystery Science Theater 3000.

The Hunt for Mountain Dew Dark Berry

  A new limited edition flavor of Mountain Dew has come out. It is inspired by the upcoming movie The Dark Knight Rises. I like trying the limited edition flavors of Mountain Dew, especially the last choose the next flavor, where Mountain Dew Whiteout won. Anyway I am going nuts going to several mini marts and grocery stores looking for this damn flavor. I have found it, only in 2 liter, and 12 pack form so far. I only want it in 20 oz bottle form to see if I actually like it. What if I bought the 12 pack and did not like it? What do I do then? Keep the other 11 cans in the cooler in the bar in my basement? We'll I'll probably find the 12 oz bottles in the coolers by the registers in Walmart. When I find it I'll probably review it.

A Froggy Thrift Store Find

  Today I walked down to my favorite thrift store and came across a froggy surprise. I was looking at the toys and saw on the top shelf a 20 inch stuffed animal of one of my favorite Looney Tunes characters, Michigan J Frog. Hello my baby I said in my head. I love Michigan J Frog ever since I first saw him as the Mascot for the now defunct WB Network. He was $1.95.

Dave Blaney Cardboard Cutout

  12 years ago I was only 10 years old and I had acquired a highly unheard of item. You rarely hear about it today. Years ago Amoco sponsored the Bill Davis Racing 93 Pontiac Grand Prix in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, then Busch Series and from 2000 to 2001 the NASCAR Winston Cup Series driven by Dave Blaney. Now my dad knew a guy who owned an Amoco Service Station that was full service. Since my mother didn't know how to pump her own gas we went there for gas. Inside the service station window was a cardboard cutout of Dave Blaney. I always admired it. One day the owner gave it to me. I still have it all these years. I have never seen another one on eBay or any other site.

The Worst Action Figure Line Ever

  Today I was in Ollie's Bargain Outlet while my mom was in the grocery store nearby. I was looking in the toy department to see if they still had any of the Mattel The Dark Knight Movie Masters Two-Face figures. Sadly, I couldn't find any. While looking for Two-Face, I happened to stumble across a weird action figure, from a toyline called Bibleman. I have heard of this crappy Christian themed superhero TV show before but never saw it. The action figure was of Luxor Spawndroth. Who I assume is a villain based on his looks. What is funny about seeing this toy was that it was from 2002! This makes me wonder how badly this toyline was a shelfwarmer. The figure was $2.99. I didn't buy it but looking at the carding there was another figure in the series that looked like it would make an excellent custom Kharma action figure. That figure was Bible Girl. Sadly Luxor Spawndroth was the only one they had. Aw shucks. Judging by the figure, it looked like it had little articulation in the legs. Also the figure looks like a the child of Darth Vader without his helmet and Cyborg from Teen Titans. This also begs the question, what store would order these toys? I don't remember ever seeing them on shelves of stores in 2002. My best guess would have to be Christian stores. I did look these up online and found that you can buy these action figures pretty cheap. That's probably because nobody wants them to begin with.

America's Got Talent Needs The Keyboard Cat

  While waiting for Monday Night RAW to come on tonight. I put on America's Got Talent. Seeing all the people who audition get X'd out I thought the show could use some improvement. They need two things. One is the Vaudeville hook. The other is The Keyboard Cat. Combining the two of these would increase hilarity. When a bad act auditions, they x them out, give them the hook and have the Keyboard Cat play them off. I know the Keyboard Cat passed away. That isn't a problem, all they have to do is get Charlie Schmidt's approval.

The Sopranos NASCAR Jacket

 Today I walked down to a local independent thrift store to see if they get anything new. I was there a few weeks ago and I happened to notice that there was a The Sopranos NASCAR jacket there. It was $20. I had to pass on it because I didn't have the money at the time. So flash forward to today, the thrift store was having a 50% off all items with a green tag sale. It was my lucky day, the jacket was still there and It also happened to have a green tag making the jacket $10. The jacket is an XXL and it surprisingly fits me even though I am an XL. It's nice and warm for my first NASCAR Jacket. I got a good deal on it because it retails for $129.99

Today's Dollar General Find

  Today I walked down to Dollar General in the rain to see if they had anything decent. I remember some time last year seeing a Taylor Swift doll there and it was on clearance for $20 or something. I can't remember but it was a deluxe one. Anyway flash forward to today. I was looking at the toys on the top shelf of around the side wall of the store, that is where they keep the expensive toys that kids or might try to steal. Upon looking on the shelf I happened to see a Taylor Swift doll on the shelf with it's price sticker missing from the box. So I asked the lady who works there how much it is. So she goes to the register and rings it up. It came up $5. So I bought it. I went home and took some Goo Gone and cleaned up the sticker residue from the box. I am keeping the Doll in the box because I found out that they are quite collectible and that the maker, Jakks-Pacific does not have the Taylor Swift license anymore so the fetch a pretty penny on eBay. I later found out that the doll originally cost $10.

Hot Wheels Blasphemy

This is Just wrong.
  I almost suffered a goddamn stoke today when I was in Walmart today. Why? Well I saw  disrespect to a classic American truck, the Dodge Lil Red Express. This time it wasn't red it was purple. They never came in purple in real life. What the heck Mattel? It's an oxymoron now. It's not a Lil Red Express if it is painted purple is it? No it isn't. It would have to be called a Dodge Lil Purple Express then. And that sounds just lame. This is just as bad as the Maroon Buick Grand National that they made as a variation for the 2007 New Models.

Why is Edward Cullen Still In School If He Is 108 Years Old?

Looking good for 108

  I was watching and riffing Twilight New Moon today because I was bored. I happened to notice that Edward Cullen said he was 108 years old. Yet He's supposed to look like he is 17 years old. First off why is he still in school if he is 108 years old? He would have graduated by 1919. He must be a real idiot if he is 108 years old and still in high school. Fact most school districts let you stay until you are 21 and If you haven't graduated by then, they kick you the out and then you can get your GED. In shorter words throw Logic out the second story window. See this doesn't make any sense whatsoever.
A Real 108 year old man
If You were 108 you would look like this.

An Official Thrift Store Find

  I had a dermatologist appointment today, and it was close by the Salvation Army Thrift Store. . It was not even a block away. Anyway. I looked around and first found a vintage die cast Air Products tanker truck. It caught my eye immediately but upon further inspection the cab was missing a tire. I looked around for it and couldn't find the tire anywhere. A major let down there. The truck would have looked great in my Pennsylvania tribute. Anyway I happened to stumble across a brand new without tags, Sunoco The Official Fuel of NASCAR hat for $2.99. I used to have a hat like that a few years ago, but the brim wasn't bent correctly and looked funny. So they had two new ones. I purchased it and was happy.

My Dream Came True Again

Victor Hugo
  My luck is going strong two days in a row. Today I found another toy that I wished that Mattel would make. No it's not a WWE action figure. It's Victor Hugo from Cars 2. I was hoping that they would make the Cars 2 character that was based on a Yugo. I was shocked that they actually made him. I was in Toys R Us today looking to see if they had any new WWE action figures or any NECA Twilight figures to make a WWE Celebrity action figure wrestling match, but sadly there were no Twilight figures in sight. Anyway by dumb luck i glanced at the top of a display cube of Cars 2 diecast cars, and saw Victor Hugo, and picked him up and purchased him. Although I haven't seen Cars 2, I did happen to only buy Acer the AMC Pacer, and Grem the AMC Gremlin because I love AMC cars. Victor Hugo was also a must have because nobody really makes Yugo diecast cars. Victor Hugo has some modifications thanks to Pixar, such as having dual headlights on each side of his grille and having a V badge on his grille instead of the Yugo Y.

My Dream Came True

  Today I went to a doctor appointment today and after I went there I went to Kohl's. The reason why was because there have been reports of Mattel WWE RAW SuperShow AKA Basic series 18 have been showing up in Kohl's. So I went there and found Basic 18. I picked up Sin Cara and Hunico. Also I went there to look for the Matchbox Real Working Rigs General Dynamics Stryker MGS. They had it. All the stores in my area stopped carrying the Matchbox Real Working Rigs since they did the reset after Christmas. Especially my Walmart stopped carrying them. Kmart still has them but not any 2012 models. I almost had a heart attack and a stroke combined from finding both B18 and the Matchbox Stryker MGS. It was indeed a good day and a dream come true combined

Kristen Stewart's Mouth Never Closes

I rest my case
  Did you ever look at a picture of the actress Kristen Stewart? If So did you ever notice that in 97% of those photos her mouth is open? She has the same expression in every picture. She is like that YTMND facial expressions fad. Why does she rarely close her damn mouth? Nobody knows what is exactly the cause of this. I have several theories. One theory is that she has her mouth open all the time is due to finding out that she is only getting paid $5 to play the role. Theory two is that she realizes she can't act for anything and can't compute that. Theory three is that she is has a reflex problem with her mouth keeping it open all of the time. If she has her mouth open the whole time, she probably gets sore throats alot because that happens when you sleep with your mouth open. Kristen Stewart please close your mouth.
