He Told You He’d Be Back: Terminator 2 Coming to Theaters in 3D Next Year

While the date has not yet officially been set, it seems that one of the greatest action movies in history (ya know, right after Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot) will be returning to theaters in 3D next year. Which movie you ask? Are…are you serious? I mean, it’s right there in the title, plus there is a picture of the poster. Really? You still don’t know? It’s Terminator 2. Wow, you’re not too bright are you? Advertisements

Part of a balanced diet: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Pudding Pies

“Fresh from the sewers to you!” The Hostess Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Pies featured a green glazed pie crust that was filled with Vanilla Puddin’ Power or mutagen goo as it’s referred to in the commercial (both sound pretty delicious to me). I would bet the majority of us never got to taste these (let’s say…delicious?) pies, as they were only around from 1990 to 1991 (that’s a pretty solid run). I don’t know about you, but I would eat the hell out of those things. Apparently every wrapper included 1 “pudding point” which could be used to acquire mail in prizes which according to Wikipedia were: 1. a pack of two “Battle Signal Clickers” – metal clickers featuring Leonardo’s face and the “Turtles Pies” logo, along with instruction cards explaining a secret “Turtles Morse Code” for use with the clickers 2. A turtle shell belt buckle which could store items inside of it 3. A Painter’s style hat featuring all four turtles 4. A black Ninja Turtles t-shirt with a “puff-print” design I could …

Throwback Thursdays! “Ahead by a Century” by The Tragically Hip

This song seems fitting as The Tragically Hip just played their final show this past weekend. The band did one last tour this summer after their lead singer Gord Downie was diagnosed with brain cancer. The final concert was held in Kingston and was broadcast and streamed live by CBC in Canada to a reported audience of over 11 million (not bad for a country with a population of 35 million and while the Olympics were going on). The final concert itself raised over $200,000 for cancer research. I will admit, there are a few songs by The Hip that I have really enjoyed but to say I am a big fan would be, well, a lie. HOWEVER, that does not apply when speaking about the song ‘Ahead by a Century’. This is not only the best Tragically Hip song (in my opinion), it is one of the best songs ever (also in my opinion). Apparently, I’m not alone in this thinking as The Tragically Hip decided to close their concert with it making this …
