Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement...


NXT Takeover Toronto aired earlier this evening, and so I'm giving my raw view on what went down in this recap & review.





1st Match Notes Tye Dillinger vs Bobby Roode Chorus Entrance for RoodeSurprisingly I think Tye is more over than Roode in TorontoSolid match, nothing spectacular, these are two guys who back in the 80s would be the ones having time-limit draws to open live eventsThere was an obligatory 'Canadain Sharpshooter' spot done because both are Canadian's and this show was in TortonoRoode wins with DDT
2nd Match Notes
Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Finals TM-61 vs The Authors of Pain Paul Ellering was in a a shark cage to keep him from interfering in the match, still he could yell out instructions from being raised 13 feet in the airThere was some ass-hat yelling 'Russo Booked This' even though putting a manager in a cage to keep them from being a factor is very old school, i.e. the Battle of Atlanta Raza…

Recap & Review Stranger Things

Thanks to a co-worker, I sat down and watched the entire season of the Netflix original series Stranger Things... watching the first episode late Thursday night and then watching the remaining seven in a binge marathon that ended just before six in the morning.... cause the show was that damn good folks...



QUICK NOTES The series is paced like a book, everything happens in a totally straight forward manner, and you don't want to stop watching itThere is some obvious E.T. vibes throughout itThe kid actors carry the show, talk about getting an awesome groupWinona Ryder hasn't been this good in 20 yearsMy biggest nitpick is the placement of the opening credits happening after a long cold open that is so epic that it takes me out of the episode for a couple of minutesYes the vlog recording started exactly at 6 AM

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement....


Earlier this year I attended Camden Comic Con, which was held at the Rutgers Campus in my home town of Camden, New Jersey... and the excitement is already building towards the next one on April 8, 2017.

Why?

Well let's look at what's already been announced.

Jon Schindehette of ArtOrder.com and who has worked as a creative director for Dungeons & Dragons will be in attendance. From what I understand he's going to do a lecture on building a portfolio for both D&D and Magic: The Gathering as well as producing one's own comic book. That's pretty damn cool for those who are creators looking for advice on how to get their foot in the door as well as insight on getting their content made.

Also announced, Mark Morales who has worked at DC and MARVEL, Bryan JL Glass (known for work on the Mice Templer), plus Pat Shand the writer behind Desnity NY. That's already an impressive line up in my humble opinion.
