New York City: Day 3/4

I'm a day late, but hopefully not a buck short.

Day 3:
-outlet mall shopping at Woodbury Commons (outlet mall).
-this place is a sinkhole for your money.
-women beware of their fabulous prices.
-went to Uncle Sik and Aunt Gigi's home. Huge like a mansion. Steep hilled backyard.
-went to local Italian restaurant for dinner. Waitress caught someone trying to dine and dash. Culprit caught by waiter and chef. He threatened the chef afterwards. Scared my cousins.
-1.5 hour drive back home.

Day 4 (WEDDING DAY):
-wedding of my cousin Eileen and Dr. Victor Yim.
-venue: country club on Long Island (I forget the name), 1.5hr drive from Brooklyn.
-...so this is what a 6-figured wedding looks like... $1,000 centerpieces. Shit.
-Eileen looks drop dead beautiful and both seem extremely happy.
-early reception @2pm.
-video montage of their engagement... it took place underwater while scuba diving!
-so sleepy.
-wedding ends super early, 5pm.
-I'm not hungry, but apparently we're headed to dinner now, this is new.
-enough time to catch 2/3 of TNA ppv.
-talked to Stephen til 1 about cooking, music, highschool. Wow, nostalgia.

R.I.P. Evan Tanner

The body of the professional fighter and former UFC champion, Evan Tanner, 37, was found in the Palo Verde mountain area of California on September 8th, 2008. He was found a few miles away from his campsite on foot, with no water, where the temperatures were around 110 degrees fahrenheit. The coroner's report listed the cause of death as from heat exposure.

Tanner left Oceanside, California on September 2nd. On September 4th, he sent a text message to a friend telling him that his motorcycle was out of gas, that he was out of water, and if his friend didn't hear from him the next day, to call the authorities. Unfortunately, Evan never returned home.

I'm not the hugest MMA fan, I consider myself a casual fan, and a n00b at best. I was listening to Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer Radio, and the story of Tanner's life sounded intriguing.

As fantastic as it sounds, Tanner ventured into the deserts in search of treasure and adventure. I kid you …

Star Wars: The Force Awakens!!!!!!!!!!

(Warning: Spoilers Ahead)
Star Wars!!!!  After a 10 year gap we finally receive a new entry into the now Disney owned Star Wars franchise!  So it is apt that the new entry is called the Force Awakens.
The movie starts off 30 years from where the Return of the Jedi last left us.  The Empire has fallen and the Rebels have seemingly disbanded.  But from the ashes of the past, a new threat has risen.  Out of the fallen Empire, a new army called the First Order has spawned, threatening to finish off what the Empire set out to do –  eliminate the force by terminating the last known Jedi, Luke Skywalker.  But as the Empire has evolved so have the Rebels.  Led by General Leia Organa, the Resistance (or the new Rebels) aims to find Luke first, to stop the First Order.
We are told this story through two new main characters.  Rey, who is a scavenger on the planet Jakku, who harvests scrap metals to earn a meal.  Finn, a turncoat stormtrooper who realizes his purpose could be something more than j…

DTV Madness: Joy Ride or Sleepaway Camp? How bout neither!

I've got a crapload of DTV reviews coming out within the next week or so. I don't know why, maybe because it's near Halloween, that companies shit out all these movies around this time. So I watched two this week, Joy Ride 2: Dead Ahead and Return to Sleepaway Camp. I had hopes (not high hopes) for both, as I enjoyed the first Joy Ride and loved, loved, LOVED, the original Sleepaway Camp, but like with most DTV affairs, I was quite let down.

Return to Sleepaway Camp

The first Sleepaway Camp was created obviously to milk off the success of other slasher flicks at the time, notably Friday the 13th. It was a complete low-rent production, complete with bad acting and bad dialogue. The saving grace in the movie came at the ending. Anyone who's seen this movie could not possibly forget the ending, it's one of those things you just can't unsee. However, if you need a reminder or a spoiler...
