Blink-182 With Matt Skiba Thoughts

Blink-182 was one of the most popular bands to come out of the 90’s.  After gaining a lot of notoriety in the Southern California music scene in the mid 90’s, they rose to national popularity thanks to their hit Dammit off of the 1997 album Dude Ranch.  They followed that up with the album Enema of the State in 1999, which absolutely blew up.  They went on to release a live album, along with 2 more studio albums in the early 2000’s before they went on an “indefinite hiatus” in 2005.  They paved the way for the punk-pop music explosion … Continue reading

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secret of the Ooze Review

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2

In my review of the 1st Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, one of the things that I mentioned was how well it holds up today.  Even though it’s a kid’s movie, it has a lot of dark plot elements that make it still enjoyable as an adult.  Unfortunately, the opposite could be said of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secret of the Ooze.  As a kid, this movie was awesome, but it really doesn’t hold up nearly as well as an adult.  The problem is that they mostly took away any dark elements and any type of adult themed content, … Continue reading

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Action Figures

Anyone who grew up in the 90’s will most likely have fond memories of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. They were originally introduced as part of a comic book series that started in 1984, but they soared to international popularity when a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon series began in 1987. The cartoon spawned action figures, video games, merchandise, and 3 movies that were released in the 90’s. There wasn’t a kid I knew in the early 90’s who wasn’t obsessed with the Turtles. Fortunately, the feelings of nostalgia have never let the Ninja Turtles die. They had a new … Continue reading

Twisted Metal (2012)

Twisted Metal 2012

Twisted Metal was usually one of the first games that people played on the original Playstation. It had a fairly simple concept…drive around in a vehicle, collect weapons and power ups, try to destroy all the other cars. The story of the game involved trying to win a contest, which would enable the driver to have any wish that they desired granted by the organizer of the contest, who was named Calypso. It was kind of cool, but I think that all anyone really cared about was blowing up vehicles. The game spawned a lot of memorable characters, and a … Continue reading

Mortal Kombat (2011)

Mortal Kombat 2011

The Mortal Kombat games were some of the most popular and controversial video games in the 90’s. With their extreme violence and excessive blood, they made every parent cringe and every kid ecstatic. The series continued throughout the 2000’s with some great games, yet they never seemed to receive quite as much fanfare as the originals. In 2011, the newest title came out, aimed at taking the series more back to its roots. Having seemingly exhausted every possible new storyline, this game uses time travel to take us back to where it all began. … Continue reading
