Review: Motor City Comic Con 2012

Every year I go to Motor City Comic Con.  It’s one of the smaller conventions that I go to.  I started going here in 1997 and have made many friends at this event over the years.  In fact, my friends are the only reason I still go to the event.  They don’t really have a lot of stuff there that holds my attention anymore as their guests charge for autographs, their panels are hard to hear in, and they’re overpriced for this size of an event.  Though I still manage to get into the show every year to see a few dealers and guests who’ve become my friends through the years.

Hazel Park's Dairy Park

When growing up as a child, there was a local treat that my mother would take me to, it was an ice cream shop shaped like a barn.  The small house next to it had these plastic animals in it that was fun to look at as we would sit at the picnic table eating our ice cream.  Not a far drive from where we lived, this was a treat we enjoyed on hot summer days.  They had shakes, malts, cones, banana splits and more, even hot food like hot dogs.  The Dairy Park is a place that people could go for some really good affordable food.

Review "Michigan Action Figure Expo" 2011

On May 5th, 2012, I packed up handful of my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles collection and traveled to Battle Creek, Michigan for the Michigan Action Figure Expo.  We got to our hotel on Saturday, and came in to start getting things set up for the event on Sunday.  After getting things in order, we headed back to our hotel to wake up early on the 6th, so that we could get the collection on display before the crowd showed up.

1991 Turtles at School

Every year for my birthday back when I was in elementary school, my mom would bring cupcakes for the full class.  Though only one of those times did it really stand out as it was during the best school year of my life.  I’ve already shared how I was bullied in school.  Well, in the sixth grade my mom moved me to another school, sadly I was only in this school for one year, Harding Elementary, with my teacher Mr. Aspinwall.

This Weekend! Michigan Action Figure Expo!

This upcoming Sunday, I will be at the Michigan Action Figure Expo in Battle Creek, MI.  I’ve been spending the past month getting ready for this event.  I will be bringing some rare TMNT items from throughout the years; toys, comics and more.  We also have decided to have a real treat for everyone who enjoys Cowabunga Corner and decides to come to this wonderful event.

Review: The Five-Year Engagement

Some movies have interesting concepts but just are not well executed  This type of problem lands in all genres, be it comedy, action, romance, or adventure.  They have a great idea, though the problem is making it a full length movie for people to enjoy.  Some movie will start off well, as their idea is seen for those few glimpses in the beginning, but then it drags and drags.  This was the feeling of the movie “The Five-Year Engagement”.

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.

Hey everyone,

TMNT Monster Truck

Over the years there has been a lot of really cool things made for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  Stuff people enjoy from toys, comics, clothes, even skateboards and skis.  Though one of the biggest and most awesome things I’ve ever seen made for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was the Monster Truck!
