Point Blank – T.O. 2 O.T.

Canada Day Countdown – Week 1:

This music video was in demand on Much Music back when it first came out in 2008. I apologize for the sound quality but you really need to hear it in better audio because this doesn’t do it any justice. Canada Day Countdown taking it from T.O. 2 O.T. baby!

Hentai Boost 2007 DX

This shit had me laughing for weeks! When you first start the video, it says weird video games but you know what? The minute you see the word Hentai in whatever it is your looking it, expect the unexpected. So when you hear you’re going to save the human race from an alien invasion by straight up masturbating in time to fire the orgaboost laser, it’s just another day in the office. By the way, the dude reviewing the game is Canadian. Enjoy

Point Blank – Born And Raised In The Ghetto

Canada Day Countdown – Week 2:

I remember when this song came out; it was being hyped in music stores and everything. I actually found out that their debut album was being released because of this song and I was really hoping for their older material to be on it. Not saying their newer material doesn’t compare, but like I said before, it deserves to be on wax.

Chalazion Excision

I would like to apologize for my absence; I had surgery done last Friday on my eyes and was just healing up from it. The surgery wasn’t too serious and the procedure was called Chalazion Excision. If you haven’t noticed from some of the photos of older posts, I had a big nasty bump in my eyelids and I was treating it with a hot water compress (warm water on a rag and press up against the eyes for 10 minutes). It’s the most annoying thing anybody can go through and I’ve been to the doctors on separate occasions and have had separate medicines but nothing worked. So we had to get them drained. If you’re wondering what I mean by drained, check this video out but I warn you it’s not for the faint of heart. My surgery was similar but not 100% like the one in the video. So the only thing left to say is, I hope I don’t have to go through that anymore in this lifetime because having them twice is MORE than enough and I wish for nobody to go through what I went through.

Point Blank – Life 2002/Thin Line

Canada Day Countdown – Week 3:

As far as I know, these songs haven’t been released on a cd yet and, to be honest with you, I have no idea why. It was these two songs that drew my attention to this group in the first place and they need a spot to share in Hip-Hop history, let alone, a Canadian Hip-Hop buzz. I do apologize for the audio quality and I will say you have to listen to these songs in audio because this quality doesn’t do it any justice.  Listening to the audio version will also give you the full version of each track as opposed to the blend they have here.

Subliminal Messages

When you’re having a talk with someone about subliminal messages in the media, more often than not, the name Walt Disney comes up. I’m pretty sure everyone’s heard of the Disney films having sexual related subliminal messages either in their films and/or their box art. But what about all those subliminal messages in those movies that we happened to miss because we were too busy looking for the obvious ones? Well, I managed to track down a video that shows ALL the subliminal messages that were in popular Disney flicks we watched growing up. Just remember that Livin’ Large got you with the hook-up.

Tekken Tag 2

I’m not really into fighters because, to me, the two best games back in the day were Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat and aside from all the blood and gore, Mortal Kombat was lazily put together by the creators. I mean you got pallet swaps of each character whether male (Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Reptile, Cyrax, Sector, etc.) or female (Mileena, Kitana, Jade). It’s like, if I paid full price for a game and it features 20 characters to choose from but 8 or 9 of them are the same character just different color is just insulting my intelligence. But I guess they pulled it off by giving them all their own personality, “move set” and story so you’re excused MK.

Laziness

I guess if we were living in the MK Universe, putting on a different colored T-Shirt means you’re a different person

As for Street Fighter, their combos and fireballs are just too tedious to memorize and/or pull off. Back in the day when Street Fighter was king, nine times out of ten you’re left getting your ass kicked by a Street Fighter veteran while you’re trying to punch in the right button combinations in order to pull off a fireball, which, in my opinion, leaves the game broken. Nowadays Street Fighter actually has an in game move set and a training tutorial in order to not leave you fending for yourself by spamming the low punch button. So much love to Capcom for that and for keeping the game alive with the original Street Fighter characters that I grew up with.

Move Set

Back in the ’90s it was trail and error and nowadays you can get every characters move set with a push of a button

Tekken Tag

Truly a King of Fighters

It wasn’t until Namco’s Tekken games, specifically Tekken 3 that got me hooked to this fighting series. The game play was really easy to get into whether you were a novice or a Tekken Lord because all four buttons control a different limb on the characters body and combos were a lot easier to pull off/remember compared to MK or Street Fighter (at least in my opinion). When Namco released Tekken Tag, I regarded it as the ultimate party game much like Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. I can’t tell you how much fun my friends and I had when we booted this game up. I was waiting on a sequel for the Tag series ever since and the good news is we’re FINALLY going to get one this September. Snoopy Snoop Dogg from Long Beach will be making an appearance in Tekken Tag 2 so jump for joy or wince in pain on that fact.
