I went to see Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit in the theater today and I liked it. The number of actors was somewhat limited but it did star Chris Pine, Keira Knightley, Kevin Costner and Kenneth Branagh. It has the typical good guys bad guys store line but its been a while since I seen an action flick that didn’t over due the scenes with crazy stunts and 100′s of explosions. But that’s just my opinion so go see it yourself and make up your own mind about it. Below is the move trailer so check it out..
After years of playing World of Warcraft I got used to the interesting game play and the fun online factor, but over time I outplayed it and moved on to other things. Since then I’ve been looking for another game that is just as fun online, great graphics and interesting game play but nothing has come even close.
But today I just noticed that the new Elder Scrolls Online is set to be release on April 4 of this year so this is very exciting. The graphics look really good, game play looks fun and the fact that its online is a WIN WIN.
Check out a few videos that I found on YouTube about it.

Tie Review #5
It’s another Friday night and here is another Tie Review. Today’s Tie is from Truly Classic. I had this tie for many years but only wore it for special occasions. But now since I wear a shirt and a tie every day I bring this one out of the closet every now and then. It has a silver and black diamond like pattern on a blue background. I like this pattern as its sharp and has good contrast so it works great with a deep blue shirt. My rating for this tie today is 9/10 as its a great looking tie and I never have an issue wearing it.
Brand: Truly Classic
Color: Black and Silver Pattern on a Blue Background

I’m looking at doing a series of posts about my Warhammer 40K and WARMACHINE Miniatures. Every post would have pictures of how each miniature looks and a review on each one. To make this happen I will need to take some good looking pictures of each miniature. Lighting is the key so I will need to construct a lightbox to have a better balance of light.
There are many ways of building a lightbox but one easy way is to cut out large portions of a card board box, then tape white paper to the holes and then shine light at the piece of paper which will shine through and this will create a more balanced light on anything inside. So my next step is to do some research on this and make a plan on how to construct one.
More on this coming soon.Read More
“Create a Plan, Be Consistent and Stick With It” these are my words of wisdom for you today.
Whatever your goals and dreams are start with a plan so you know what you want to accomplish, be consistent with pursuing it and don’t give up, keep going till you get it.
This is day 3 of me working out and my muscles are achy but the achy muscles are nothing compared to the satisfaction that I am getting from knowing that I am moving toward the right direction in my health and fitness goals.
Humans are creatures of habit so create a new habit of working out or eating better and repeat it over and over till it becomes natural and then BAM your on your way.
If you do something for 30 days you’ll create a habit and then after that its downhill...Read More
Today my brother and I went to the local hobby shop, Seb’s RC Shop and he picked a new battery and touch screen fast charger for his sons Traxxas Stampede RC truck.
The charger that he purchased is the Vista Power AK608AC Touch Screen Series VP-F1126B. I seen this charger before but I thought it was all just gimmicks with a touch screen in a charger but after playing with it for a bit I was wrong.
This charger has some really cool features. While charging a 5000Mah NiMH Battery it was measuring capacity, current, voltage, resistance and if you have the addon temp sensor it will even measure peak temperature. It can show you individual cell voltages for LiPo batteries which is really cool to...Read More
As the title states its time for a change, my weight hit 237.3lbs today so I’m ready to move into a lighter, healthier and stronger state for me.
This week I’m going to be assessing what changes I need to make in my diet, habits and designing a new exercise plan that’s easy to start then follow through.
2 years ago I started working out in February and did it all the way till August and then things came up and then I fell of my game. But this time I want to keep it permanent and keep going as a life style change. So the plan is to make it simple to follow and in case something comes up make it easy to get back into it really fast.
I realized recently that its all in your mind, excuses and fear are just thoughts that run around in your head with no purpose but just to deter you from achiev...Read More
Another week has passed and I had lots of fun building my Axial Wraith 4×4 Kit Truck. After it was finished I got a chance to take it out and play with it, and I was really impressed with how it handles terrain. As it’s higher off the ground then my SCX10 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon it’s more capable of crawling and handling more obstacles. Video on this coming soon.
During the build of my Axial Wraith truck I noticed that the plastic shocks leak oil really bad so my first upgrade will be new shocks. Everything else seems good but time with tell with more crawling and bashing.
I also tweaked my images on my blog today and made sure they all load up now when you click them.
As both my truck builds are done now, next week I will have more time to work on my blog itself and also encode my videos of...Read More
My Axial Wraith Rock Racer Kit is finally built. It was a fun build and I enjoyed it just as much as my SCX10 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon kit.
During this build I didn’t get a chance to take any good pictures or videos, but there will be plenty of tear downs when I start adding on some mods onto this truck to show the chassis.
Today while on a walk on the trails I did get a chance to play with it a bit and am very impressed with it. The only weak part that I can see out of the box are the plastic shocks. I made sure during my build that my shocks were properly tightened up but they still leak like crazy so my first mod on this truck will be a new set of shocks.
Enjoy the pictures and a video will be coming soon.
Tie Review #4
Today I’m reviewing the Le Chateau solid forest green color tie. It’s a simple solid green color with no patterns so I would match this tie up with a light color green shirt or even a white shirt. The green color is a nature color so it’s great for spring or summer. The inspiration to pick this tie today is my Axial Wraith Remote Control truck as I just finished painting it today and its almost the same green color.
Brand: Le Chateau
Color: Solid Forest Green
Material: 100% Polyester Microfiber
