Great month in the books

This is a real short blog this afternoon but I just wanted to put a quick thank you to everyone that has read the blog over the last month. I have put a lot more effort into it and it has been regularly publishing content every week day, something I wanted to accomplish. I decided to drop the full time sports blogging (even though I get the itch every day to fire it back up) and it has really opened up some free time to blog normally on here.

Now as the calendar turns to April, its going to be an even bigger month for me. First, I’ll be launching a campaign to see if anyone wants to team up to join me in Japan in November. This is a far out there idea, but I will at least give it an attempt. I may even add it to my FB which I never use. The biggest thing going on in April is booking the trip. The finances are coming together so its about time to get it done. It will be a busy month of research and the booking will be the biggest thing that I have researched and will take the plunge into making the trip a reality.

Not going to lie, I’m a little nervous to make the purchase. This is a lot of money being thrown around, but its time to do something big for myself.

TBT: Power Rangers

There is a new Power Ranger movie out in theaters right now and the reviews have been pretty solid so far. It’s all new, its action packed, and the new characters are being designed to breath new life into this legendary Japanese series, but for me, I am loyal to the old school series, the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I am also beginning to realize how old I am sounding each time I post one of these blogs.

Growing up as a kid, the Power Rangers were a huge favorite of mine. Billy was my favorite, I loved to hate the Green Ranger, had a crush on the Yellow Ranger, and the White Ranger was just a badass when he appeared in the series. If anyone remembers the original rangers then you know why this series was so good. It was a fun action series with teenagers fighting, using karate with powered up suits and weapons, and beating enemies down. Then when things got real tough, they could all the Megazord and take anything down (the sword falling from the sky was so cool to watch). One question that always bothered me though, why did sparks come off of the rangers when they got hit? Seemed weird, but for a show that used cardboard cities, I can let it slide.

Yeah, I’m really show my age once again, but the original Power Rangers will always be the best no matter how good the new movie is.

New Walking Dead blog series coming

The top list series of blogs is coming back with a fury. I am done with Bleach (nothing left to talk about!) and am deciding to go with The Walking Dead, starting with a 10 part of series of minor characters that are now dead but were either unique, played a key role, or were just odd enough to make them fan favorites.

The blogs will be real brief since most of these characters had such minor roles or even less developed backstories, but each make my list for particular reasons. Will someone like Otis make the list? Axel from the prison or perhaps even Gareth from Terminus? All of a chance to make the list and I should say the list will be random and will not going season by season, instead picking out the characters that just come to mind. I hope you enjoy the series and I hope to get it started this week!
