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.

Tales of TMNT Guests #3

Since early on in my TMNT fandom, it has always been my dream to meet the people who’ve worked on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  Somehow I’ve managed to meet a lot of those amazing people through the years, from actors, directors, creators, artists and more.  Dreams have been coming true for me, and one of the things I feel is very important is sharing how these dreams have come true so others may take the same road if they so choose.  Here, I’m sharing how I met some of the TMNT guests that have come into my life.

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. 

World Steam Expo: Girl Genius

Review: Sea Life

Mall of America has many great things, and we have been covering the "Nickelodeon Universe" theme park a lot lately because of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shell Shock ride.  Though while at the Mall of America, we got to explore some of the other great things they have to offer.  One of those was “Sea Life,” the aquarium inside Mall of America.

The Famous Roio's Pizza - Update

A few months ago we reported about the Famous Ray’s Pizza being closed down when I visited New York City back in October.  It was a sight that really troubled me, as Ray’s was the filming location for Roy’s Pizza in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze.  This has been something that has had me worried since we first learned of the doors being closed, with no updates from anyone who lives in New York on if there was any chance of the Ray’s once again serving the best pizza in New York City.

Fugitoid's Shell Shock Review

Every Saint Patrick’s Day I try to get into the spirit by wearing green. In fact, I love doing it because green is my favourite colour. I even used to have yearly tradition for Saint Patty’s (until I moved) with a friend of going to our favourite bar, which happened to be an Irish bar, to have a few pints of Guinness and hang out. But Saint Patrick’s Day 2012 turned out to be a unique and special day, and I ended up wearing green provided by the good folks at Nickelodeon Universe.

Review: Monster Jam 2005

Monster Jam, January 2005, in Michigan was a total blast.  I shared the story of the day I got to see the Monster truck, the following day was Monster Jam.  This has been my first and only time to Monster Jam, so going I did not know what to except.  I bought my tickets in advance as soon as I knew the truck was going to be there.  So getting to the show was about finding the seats and seeing what merchandise was for sale, but more importantly was what Alex Blackwelland told me about.

Review: Nickelodeon Universe Rides

 Mall of America, one of our great tourist attractions is a huge mall with a lot of stores and even a theme park in the middle of the mall.  Originally the theme park was “Camp Snoopy” though a few years ago that park was changed into Nickelodeon Universe.  A nice size indoor theme park with rides for people of all ages.

Review: TMNT Shell Shock Display

One of the big draws that makes Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shell Shock a TMNT theme ride great is the statues that sit around the entrance of the ride.  Without these this ride would not look nearly as cool as it does for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans.  All of the statues are based on the new design for the Nickelodeon TMNT series, including a big statue of the Shredder, which was the first look that was public for the fans to see. I feel each of these statues deserve a close look for the fans who have not been able to make it to Mall of America.  So here is my review of each of the characters.
