10, 09, 08, 07, 06, 05, 04, 03, 02, 01... Happy New Year!

So bring it on 2013 I am trying to be ready for you, your 2012 sneak attack was met with some great ninja moves and great friends. I had thought to do a reflection of all the cool things that 2012 had to offer or the fact that last year my sites generated around 700 to 1000 hits in December and this year... combined is 13,000 to 15,000. That is an amazing jump, I know some of you hit that type of numbers daily and to you I say congratulations. I am so blessed being able to bring people here, to any of my places... you who visit are good people... thank you.


The question to you is what do you have planned for your site, anything going to change... what do you see that you might change? So my reflection and my little bragging on people I have met over the course of last year include; Chris Sarandon [Actor], Bianca Barnett, Dave Sills, Frederik Wiedmann [Composer], Guy Maddin [Director], Imran Ahmad, Judgehydrogen, Nathan Johnson [Composer], Panu Aaltio [Composer], Roxy Gunn Project... the list goes on. Went to a handful of cool places; Days of the Dead and Kollision Con,... and met some cool sites like... HOLLYWOOD-SPY, THE GEEK TWINS, WRITING IN THE CROSSHAIRS....HEROPRESS, ZOMBIE BITES, LET'S GET OUT OF HERE, CAPES ON FILM... this list goes on... On a sad note, I found myself visiting less places do to a few things... one that damn captcha being on and my lack of extra time. For those who are regulars [You know who you are] here I wanted to thank you and to all the new people I hoped you come back.

Nostradamus and I at the Crossroad!!... Choose Your Own Apocalypse Blogfest?


Choose Your Own Apocalypse Blogfest brought to you by... Shannon: The Warrior Muse Chuck: Apocalypse Now and by the time you read this we should all be dead. If not it will be happening soon enough, now I don't know how to tell you this... it was foreseen years ago.


How do you Prepare for the DOOM... ask an expert!!
I met Nostradamus at the crossroads to see if he could shed some light on the pending doom we all should have endured or close to it. He said "CHOOSE" the path here at the crossroads, which way will show you your future... I looked at him, cause he has always been right before. I looked at this dusty road that had two paths, one was a certain death and the other well free to live out my days on this Earth... One will bring the twenty-second... I feel like Indiana Jones in the Last Crusade having to pick the cup or even to the extremes of Sophie having to make a choice... [CLICK HERE] to see my path and maybe your path too...

 
Good Bye... everyone, might see you tomorrow? If this was the first time stopping by well then I am sorry you could not stay longer, but if you do see sunlight on December 22, 2012.. please stop over to my T-SHIRT store and pick up yourself one of my cool shirts.  WINK!

Tom Hiddleston and Chris Hemsworth are Facing Me... I am off to the RIGHT!


It's the brothers facing off with the success of the film "The Avengers", will Loki be in the next Thor film called "THOR: THE DARK WORLD"?

Storyline: Marvel’s "Thor: The Dark World" continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself.  In the aftermath of Marvel’s "Thor" and "Marvel’s The Avengers," Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos...but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness.  Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.


So it's the end, we are one more day until the end... does it happen at Midnight on Thursday or 11:59 Friday Night? How do you plan on celebrating the end, I am going to party like it's 1999.

Jeremy Renner and I "What do We Have In Common?"


We both loved the outcome of "The Avengers" film... and we both share the same first name. Lame I think so, but he is much cooler in his world and to be able to hang with the lovely Scarlett Johansson... me I just get to imagine myself hanging with her...


Okay story time, but it's a true story...
Back in 2006 I just newly married to my lovely Mrs. Zombie got into a serious car accident [not our fault] where we me, my wife and mother got flipped one and a half times. I was able to climb out of the back window of the vehicle and pull my mother and wife out of the driver's side door. We all had different injuries from my mother getting hit in the head with the tire kit to myself being the most severely damaged. I sustained four neck bones out of place [permanently] that I had 6 months of physical therapy.


Now every year as it gets colder, my neck, shoulder and fingers become easily dislodged and cause what hell I have been having the last couple of weeks... Now you may ask yourself why didn't they just aline the neck bones to be right, the doctors made claim it was never going to be right... that it was going to do what it's doing now... 


So I just wanted to share my personal life just a little with you all... I am limited to my typing and my sleep as of late and I [as a man] think I can do it all and this year would be different... wrong. So it's in it's last legs of being at the worst part, and I am happy for that...

I wanted to thank all of you... who asked and sent good vibes to me, you all know I got them all. I will be back to some sort of normal "me" whatever that might be. We did win the cases the only problem we had was it was the same insurance company and sadly the same agent... so we got screwed.

SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL [2013]

My shoulder is almost back something I like to call "Computer Elbow" from a car accident where four tiny bones got out whack... now if I over do it. Welcome in the Pain. I cannot type so much, so that is why this weeks post suck, wife said if I am not better by next week... trip to the doctor.




Okay, today I wanted to share my experiences behind the scenes of the film "Man Of Steel", which the town of Plano, Illinois hosted. I was walking around the set pre-actors, cameras and destruction. I thought I would share the year 2011 and then follow up one year later 2012. So before and after shots... if you find it interesting I can make more. Also silly side-note: the blue pick up truck in the trailer [below]... I leaned against it when it was sitting on the street across from the house, so my butt print is going to be famous.

Want my autograph... imagine what would look like!!

To Alex J. Cavanaugh... My HERO!!




Greetings…. Today is a special day a tribute of sorts to a good person, internet brother and all around cool man. Of course I speak of Alex J. Cavanaugh who outside of being blog superstar, I find myself asking who is Alex, what does he look like, where is he from and is he a he even… maybe a robot. Robots don’t really have a gender, they look like they do… but really they are parts and pieces. I know he is a man I have seen the photos… not what you are thinking… Head-shot people. So I give you my thoughts and praises to a person I think you should know… Alex J. Cavanaugh.

-So what does he look like?
My first thought was a mix of Tom Selleck [without stash] and Gary Cole… wait that is who I am.

-If there was a documentary of Alex, who would play him?
I say Gary Sinise, cause just like the look…I believe this is how he might sound..Gary is Cool. 


-Next who does he remind me of?
I think I covered that in first two questions, in a totally manly way…that’s right manly, yes sir manly.

-The Story...
In space Cavanaugh and Cosbolt are two travelers that fly around in their ship known only as the “IWSG” looking for intelligent life forms. It has a ninja cloaking device that when turned on sounds like a guitar gently weeping…

…Wait what the hell, what do you look like? You are one sneaky bastard aren’t you… you got to be some type of robot. I have tried to visit the places you go on a daily basis, how the heck do you do that. I am coming to your house for coffee and danish, so give me your address. :)


Dear Mrs. Cavanaugh…
Thank you for letting Alex following his writer’s dream and letting him play in the big blogger sandbox. He shares his wit, toys, humor and gives back to the community that we all are trying to be heard in. 

It's an honor... sir Ninja!!
