Why do I like TMNT?

Ever since I became a fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles I have been asked, why do I like TMNT?  A question people seem most interested in, hoping that I have some strange answer that will bring it all to light.  Every fan has a different answer for this, as there’s so many different reasons to like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, be it their character designs, their weapons, their enemies, their personalities, their friends and so much more.  Though the real truth about this question is there is no real answer.  If I only liked one thing about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, then most likely by now I would have moved into another fandom.  So in this write up I’m going to share the many things I like about the Turtles and why.

TMNT Real Location for Lair

In Season four of the 4Kids Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, the Turtles moved from their lair that they had in the first season.  This was the first time that the Turtle’s lair was given a real location in New York City.

Friend Memories #1

I’ve written about bullies and shared some of the bad stuff that I’ve been through.  Though while it’s easy to write and complain about people, sometimes we forget to cherish those that we have.  So I’m going to take time and do write ups about friends that have come into my life, who I still know and hang out with to this day.  These people were able to see through the lies and cruelty of those others around us, and get to know me for who I am.  I’m going to start with one girl who in 1991 decided to sit next to me in our science class.

Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles - The jokes

Since Michael Bay’s speech about Aliens, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans have been going crazy with all sorts of different things picking on it.  We’ve got the media picking it up to where TMZ had Robbie Rist on the show, the voice of the fans; we’ve had Conan O'Brien pick on the movie and so much more.  The hits just keep coming, though some of the best ones have been in the forum of art, be it music or drawings.  I’m going to take a little bit of time now to share some of my favorite Teenage Alien Ninja Turtle pieces that has come out in the last month of crazy Ninja Turtle news.

First, a few from people us Turtle fans all know and enjoy a head sketch Peter did for his blog about this subject.  I just found this a little head sketch picking at the notion of the Turtles as aliens.  Nice of Peter to write up a blog for the fans, seeing as how he has no control over any of what’s going on with the TMNT.      

Facing Fears

Fears are something everyone has to go through.  No matter who you are, if you realize it or not, there’s something out there that scares you.  Some people are very open about their fears, while others try to play it big and act like they have no fears.  For me, I wear my fear on my sleeves.  I have no shame to say that since I was a child I have had a huge fear of heights.  Though the big question comes when you decide to face your fear, can you?

Please Help

Hey everyone,

I don’t normally want to come out and publicly ask for help, though I’ve been backed into a tough area from recent medical bills. One of the big facts about life is you can never plan your health, no matter how much you may try, and my health has been a roller coaster all my life. If it’s not one thing it’s another. Everyone has heard me share the stories about RSD here on Cowabunga Corner, though that is not the only problem with me. Yet for the last seven years every time I’ve tried to get medical, there have been road blocks in my way. This has made it so I’ve not been able to go to the doctors without the fear of large bills on my head.

Stop Motion TMNT 1987 Intro!

Over the years one of the crazes that fans enjoy doing is re-creating awesome stuff from our childhood; be it acting out scenes with a group of friends, drawing out our favorite moments in TV shows and movies, and or singing a song we enjoy our own styles.  With the creation of YouTube, fans have been able to share their love of making these things public for others to enjoy.  Though not all of these re-creation videos get a lot of notice. Recently one has come up this week which is getting the public attention.

One Year of Nick TMNT Images!

One year ago, Nickelodeon released the very first image showing us the design for the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  At that time the Turtles still had two toes, though the rest of the design looks a lot like the Turtles we’re seeing now.

Rant: Medical Cost

Everyone has things that they rant about, something that troubles them and they just have to vent.  I’m no different. So, from time to time, I’m going to share some of those things here.  Some of them could be big that affect a lot of people, other rants could be something personal about my life that others might relate to.

Today’s rant is about medical cost in the United States. Yes, something a lot of people discuss how to fix it and a lot of people misunderstand how it works, while others are just totally left out.  Well I’m not going to say I’m an expert on it, but I will say that I’m one of those people who got really bumped badly from the system and have not been able to pick myself up since.  Here’s my story....

Comics & More : A place to order TMNT Comics!

Throughout my time as a Ninja Turtles fan, I’ve been going to comic shops.  Even when I’m out of state if I see one and my interest is peaked I will check it out.  I enjoy going in and talking with the people who work at these shops and am always looking to make new friends.
