Boys Night Out Reunion Show!!!!

The original members of Boys Night Out reunited for one night for a sold out show at The Opera House.

Love (bore) You To Death

I got to the venue late so I missed the first band (I think they were called Backburner) but I got there just in time for this local band called Love You To Death. Well, the only thing they managed to do was bore me to death. Judging by the reactions of the crowd the majority of the crowd felt the same way. I can't really blame them though; they were a power pop rock band where a screamo band was the headliner. I think one problem though was the sound balancing. They seemed too heavy on the bass and not enough treble, so it was tough to hear the guitar riffs for many of the songs. Other than that, my friend Greg sent me a message later that said "[the] Keytar player was pretty cute though, so I mean... They had that going for them". That's pretty much where the good ends.

Unfortunately The Simcoe Street Mob didn't play even though they were advertised. It might have been because of time constraints because apparently they were there. So it was truly our loss. The Mob is clearly a local favourite as loud chants of Simcoe were pumped in between almost all of BNO's songs.

Boys Night Out

Anyhow, the dead crowd was awakened as soon as the guys from Boys Night Out hit the stage. The people were jumping, the mosh pit had begun, the energy had arrived. In the promotion of this one night only show, they advertised that they would only be playing songs from their EP, Broken Bones and Bloody Kisses, and their first LP, Make Yourself Sick, but I was thankful that they played a song or two from Trainwreck. They played pretty much all of the favourites off of those two first albums so the crowd was sent home happy. They had a pretty electric performance barely stopping between songs to get all their shit in. I hope they do another reunion show in the future, except playing the whole Trainwreck album from start to finish; it's probably one of my favourite albums.

It was quite a fun show, it's too bad the broke up. But if they'll do a reunion show once a year, I'd be more than happy. Later geeks!

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...
