Shellback Artworks : Closing Event

When I became a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan, I was only 11 years old.  I did not realize that the age of 38 I would be sitting here still talking about Turtles to this day with other TMNT fans around the world.   I never pictured that I’d get to meet so many people who’ve worked on TMNT either.  I have to say it’s been the wonderful people behind the Ninja Turtles, which kept me a fan all these years.  Which is why I highly encourage other TMNT fans to go out and meet these wonderful folk.  I try to stand behind each of these talented people when they venture out on their own, which brings us to today’s story.  Shellback Artworks, a Gallery, store and school that was opened in Wells, ME by one of those amazing guys. 

Review: Free Comic Book Day 2013

The first Saturday in May is a yearly event that people can enjoy. As Comic Book stores receive Free Comic Books to pass out to anyone who shows up. In the Detroit area each Comic Book store does their own thing and the event takes place in the store. This is how I thought it was done everywhere, though this year there was two events I wanted to go to that was out of state. I was in for a shock with how one town runs their free comic book day like a Holiday.

Hey everyone,

Movie Review: Brave

Families are very important, though sometimes traditions can drive a family apart.  A lot of different movies have shown this, people pushing traditions on kids and instead of grasping onto this family lifestyle the kids see something else that they want in life.  Friction happens between family members and we get different types of movies where one family member is trying to get someone else in their family to see things their way.  Sometimes this lesson is learned by putting family members into each other shoes, though other movies take a totally different step.  The movie Brave by Disney and Pixar is one of those movies with a “Brother Bear” type twist.

Movie Review: "That's My Boy"

Tomorrow Adam Sandler’s new movie, “That’s My Boy,” hits the big screen.   Recently, Adam Sandler movies are hit and miss type films.  People either love them or hate them, then there’s those of us who don’t care one way or another.  My favorite Adam Sandler’s film is “Little Nicky”, though I have not seen or gone to many of his other films.  When I got tickets for “That’s My Boy”, I questioned if I wanted to go to it or not.  I decided to go and went to check out the film.

Mark Bode's TMNT Cartoon Concert

In episode 3 of "Ivey's Flashback", we have a panel, "Mark Bode's TMNT Cartoon Concert" that was held at Turtle Con 1992, the only official Turtle Con that's been held to date. My dad and I went to this panel, and my dad video taped. This panel was different than any other I've ever sat through. Held by Mark Bode and Steve Lavigne.
