My first Internet meet up

Ever get nervous about meeting fellow fans from the Internet?  Ever wonder if the person you’re talking to sitting on the other side of the screen is really who they say they are?  Has this prevented you from going out and meeting fellow fans?  I know I was nervous when I first got online, all you heard on the news was the bad stuff.

Random Collection Piece 1

Throughout the years of being a Ninja Turtle fan, my collection has been growing.  Every year I get something new that joins the collection.  Growing since 1989, I have over 500 Ninja Turtle toys out of package and over 300 in package, as well as books, animation cels, original comic art, scripts and so much more.

Movie Review: Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance

In 2007, Ghost Rider tarnished the movie screens with its poor acting, poor plot, and poor directing. Though it managed to make more than double it’s budget back in box office tickets, with over 50 million dollars made during the opening weekend. This was enough of a profit to justify a sequel.

TMNT Movie News: Looking into Directors

Since 2009, Paramount Pictures has been working on a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie.  A reboot of the story, meaning this will be the first movie that is not holding true to the origins of the 1990 release of the film.  For the first few years, they tossed around a handful of different writers that could be working on the film, finally taking in Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec and keeping them on board.

Review "Change is Constant" Volume 1

Just months ago, IDW Publishing released their first issue of the new TMNT series, leaving all of us comic book fans in shock of just how new these Turtle comics were.  Up to date, six issues have been released of the normal series and two issues from the Mirco Series.  These are wonderful comics that have been keeping us on our toes.

Hey everyone,

2011 TMNT Merch Review!

In 2011, a lot of Ninja Turtle items came out to stores.  We had T-Shirts, mugs, backpacks, pajamas, blankets, and more.  Spencer Gifts and Hot Topic were two of my top stores for 2011, because they carry these items, most of which is displaying images of the original toon Turtle design upon them.  I am guilty of buying a lot of these items that have come out, so in this write up I’ll like to share about some of my favorite TMNT items from 2011.

BLT Pizza

On VH1’s “Totally Obsessed,” I showed that I eat a pizza called BLT pizza. A lot of people have given huge reactions to this pizza.  People have been giving me the credit for making up this pizza.  The fact is that I learned of this pizza, before Ninja Turtles even entered my life.  I would like to now share where I learned of BLT pizzas.

The year was 1987, living in Michigan we had a few pizza places that I would go to with my family.  One of which hired my dad to do art work for the place.  So we’d go and get our pizza there, every now and then.  It was not our normal pizza place, but their pizza was good.  I would eat pepperoni pizzas as my favorite back then, as I was very picky on what I wanted on my pizza.

Anticipation: TMNT 2012 Series

I often get asked what my thoughts are of Nickelodeon doing a new TMNT series.  This is a question I’ve pondered over the last year.  When I was a kid I watched both Nickelodeon and Disney growing up.  Jumping from Danger Mouse to Dumbo’s Circus.  Going from “You Can’t Do that on Television” to “The Mickey Mouse Club”.   These are things a lot of children did, there were not as many channels to choose from back then.  Kid shows were only shown during certain hours of the day and you took what ever you got.  Though surprisingly enough, Nickelodeon was a station I watched all the way back in the 1980s and I still watch today.
