'Turtles Forever'

I was checking out some stuff on the upcoming Ninja Turtle movie and decided to refresh my memory on some turtle history. (Apparently there's a dedicated wiki. Although, is that really surprising?)

Several hours of browsing through articles later, I found out they created a tv movie back in 2009 called 'Turtles Forever' that combines the "new" 2003 series and the old 80s series.
Awesome, right? I thought so too.

Long story short, I found the movie.
(You can thank me now).


*The only negative is that they couldn't afford the voice actors from the original series, so everyone sounds a bit off. (I can't say anything about the 2003 series since I've never seen it).

Or: It's about Gun Violence not Race.

I love Bill Cosby.

A little Rock & Roll history

Here's a pretty awesome piece of rock & roll history:


Keith Richards writes a letter to his aunt. Especially note-worthy (pardon the pun) is his description of his encounter with one Mick Jagger.

6 Spielman Rd
Dartford
Kent

Dear Pat,

So sorry not to have written before (I plead insane) in bluebottle voice. Exit right amid deafening applause.

I do hope you're very well.

We have survived yet another glorious English Winter. I wonder which day Summer falls on this year?

Oh but my dear I have been soooo busy since Christmas beside working at school. You know I was keen on Chuck Berry and I thought I was the only fan for miles but one mornin' on Dartford Stn. (that's so I don't have to write a long word like station) I was holding one of Chuck's records when a guy I knew at primary school 7-11 yrs y'know came up to me. He's got every record Chuck Berry ever made and all his mates have too, they are all rhythm and blues fans, real R&B I mean (not this Dinah Shore, Brook Benton crap) Jimmy Reed, Muddy Waters, Chuck, Howlin' Wolf, John Lee Hooker all the Chicago bluesmen real lowdown stuff, marvelous. Bo Diddley he's another great.

Anyways the guy on the station, he is called Mick Jagger and all the chicks and the boys meet every Saturday morning in the 'Carousel' some juke-joint well one morning in Jan I was walking past and decided to look him up. Everybody's all over me I get invited to about 10 parties. Beside that Mick is the greatest R&B singer this side of the Atlantic and I don't mean maybe. I play guitar (electric) Chuck style we got us a bass player and drummer and rhythm-guitar and we practice 2 or 3 nights a week. SWINGIN'.

Of course they're all rolling in money and in massive detached houses, crazy, one's even got a butler. I went round there with Mick (in the car of course Mick's not mine of course) OH BOY ENGLISH IS IMPOSSIBLE.

"Can I get you anything, sir?"
"Vodka and lime, please"
"Certainly, sir"

I really felt like a lord, nearly asked for my coronet when I left.

Everything here is just fine.

I just can't lay off Chuck Berry though, I recently got an LP of his straight from Chess Records Chicago cost me less than an English record.

Of course we've still got the old Lags here y'know Cliff Richard, Adam Faith and 2 new shockers Shane Fenton and Jora Leyton SUCH CRAP YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD. Except for that greaseball Sinatra ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.

Still I don't get bored anymore. This Saturday I am going to an all night party.

"I looked at my watch
It was four-o-five
Man I didn't know
If I was dead or alive"
Quote Chuck Berry
Reeling and a Rocking

12 galls of Beer Barrel of Cyder, 3 bottle Whiskey Wine. Her ma and pa gone away for the weekend I'll twist myself till I drop (I'm glad to say).

The Saturday after Mick and I are taking 2 girls over to our favourite Rhythm & Blues club over in Ealing, Middlesex.

They got a guy on electric harmonica Cyril Davies fabulous always half drunk unshaven plays like a mad man, marvelous.

Well then I can't think of anything else to bore you with, so I'll sign off goodnight viewers

Tuesday Vids

Very few posts = lots to catch up on.
A few more videos to keep you entertained.


"Celebrity For The Day"
We are truly all lemmings...

"Last Saturday we went to a popular mall in Virginia and conducted a bit of a social experiment. Using his real first and middle name, and with the help of just a few staged people, tons of people believed Thomas was a famous actor, including mall security. The mall assigned us a security detail who escorted us everywhere and helped close stores for the supposed celebrity. They also took us through private corridors to avoid the frenzy. Our cameras were quickly shut down, and most of our footage was captured with a single iphone. The following is just a taste of all the autographs, pictures, and people who wanted get close to all the commotion. Do something fun today."
Really, America?

RUIN

"Ruin is an animated action short film set “way in the future” in a green post-apocalyptic universe. Directed by Wes Ball, who has been working in Hollywood for 8 years doing graphic work for HBO and DVD/Blu-ray featureetes. A graduate of Florida State University, Tallahasse, his 2003 short film A Work in Progress won the Bronze Metal at the Student Adacemy Awards (I have also included that film after the jump). Described as his “passion project”, Ball has been working on Ruin off and on for the last two years. Watch the short film now, embedded after the jump."

Another reason to hate OWSers...

Though I'm not sure these people can be called OWSers. Do they even remember what the movement was about? Not that cops are assholes sometimes, but pretty sure these guys are just doing their job.

Kind of interesting, but really just another reason to post about Bruce Lee.
