Aug 2015: Update on Ernie Reyes Jr

In June, we found out that Ernie Reyes Jr had kidney failure earlier this year.  So many questions keep flying as people want to know how Ernie is doing.  What is going on, if he’s getting a kidney transplant or not?  What changes are in store for him?  I’ve seen a lot of love go his way from the fandom and some people just assuming things.  This is a hard time in anyone’s life, and I’m out to help bring the support towards Ernie as he needs it.  I got to see him at Fandom Fest 2015 and he was kind enough to sit down and talk about what’s going on.

Cowabunga Corner goes through a lot of hard drive space on computers because of the videos and photos used for the blog.  Interviews, panels, reviews, and so much more are all saved for multiple uses, which puts us through a lot of different hard drives.  Cowabunga Corner is always needing to upgrade and move the files around to keep them all in order.  We do reuse old files when needed, so deleting is not an option on the video.  Now, it has come time for another upgrade and we’re asking for help.

Why Cowabunga Corner 6 has not been Filmed

Cowabunga Corner normally starts our season episodes in June, having a new season start each year since 2010 with interviews, reviews, and so much more.  Though in 2014, we did not have a new season, as Season 6 never started.  We kept promising to get Season 6 going with interviews already filmed and sitting in wait for the rest of the season.  The big questions that people have asked are why and where is the next season?  Here are the answers to what is going on.

Snap Review: Minions doll, blind bag and iphone case

 

There’s so many different products released every year that we have a hard time keeping up with everything.  From toys, food, and novelty products.  Wanting to cover everything we enjoy, including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles can take time.  Which has got me deciding to do some shorter reviews, just doing fast coverage of the product itself.  These are our Cowabunga Corner Snap Reviews.  Each review covering a different product, depending on what ever it is we have to share.  This episode covers some Minion products

Kodak Moment #32

I got hundreds to thousands of photos through my life.  A lot of which would match up to stories here on Cowabunga Corner, but for one reason or another they are not chosen.  This does not mean that these photos are not worth sharing and do not hold stories of their own.  I would like to keep sharing what I can here on the site, so whenever I can I will share a photo and a story to go along with the photo.  If it’s a part of events that has been shared here, we will link back to the stories of the events themselves as well.  Hope everyone enjoys.  Today’s photo is from my days as a Turtle.

CCI 2015 Nickelodeon TMNT Panel

 

One of the events I look most forward to each year is the Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Panel at San Diego Comic Con International.  They always share awesome character designs for the upcoming season, bring in the voice actors and producers and share lots of fun stuff.  These panels have been at Comic Con International since 2012.  This year they did something different, it is the first year that they brought in someone from outside of Nickelodeon to Moderate the panel having Andre from Black Nerd Comedy.  Here’s the panel and my review of the panel.
