JD Sports Forum! / Fishing
« on: May 23, 2003, 02:43 PM »
I don't think I have ever seen a topic on any other message board on the fine sport of fishing so this may go down in flames.  Any one here fish?  Bass fishing opens here tomorrow and I hope to get down to my folks house and throw a line in the Mississippi

They live around a 1/4 mile from the river in one of the best Smallmouth Bass spots in North America so I guess I am a little spoiled there but I usually go on two or three trips a year.  Last winter I went up to Lake of the Woods on the Canuckian/Minnesota border and cleaned up on the walleyes, this summer will consist of a trip to northen MN and possibly a night on the Mississippi catfishing.

Watto's Junk Yard / Ever Walk Out of A Movie?
« on: May 22, 2003, 11:00 AM »
I've come close:

Bridges of Madison County my ex-girly wanted to go see this, she hated it too so I was like why are we here

Dracula  The plot made no sense and it was as scary as Scooby Doo and the Harlem Globetrotters. I thought this was the worst movie of all time until I saw...

Batman and Robin  The only reason me and wifey didn't leave was beacuse I was laughing so hard at how bad everything was...I felt bad for Geroge Clooney cause I think he is a good actor.  I think we went to the buck theater with awesome corn so we stayed and had a hoot

Saga '02-'04 / How Long Will Hasbro Make 3 3/4"

Throw me in the category of: I don't see this line in its current incarnation going 2 or 3 years past Episode III (which is around 2008)

This is due to the already waning interest in the line
Hasbro's losing money already hand over fist
Making everything possible

What do you all think, do you actually think the line will make it until 2015 or whenever the license is good for or was Hasbro just trying to lengthen the contract to lessen the financial burden

Something I keep thinking of though is the Wizard of Oz, you can go into to toy stores and still find some incarnation of the fearsom foursome...comic heroes are all over 50 years old too...

Saga '02-'04 / Luke and Darth: A New Hope...What are they?
« on: May 20, 2003, 09:48 AM »
A month or so ago TPU posted a retailer order sheet which contained a new Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader separate from the ROTJ versions.  Kebco recently posted the same bit of news but added that they were from ANH.

Are they repacks or are they new figures.  And if they are repacks, which ones do you think they are?

No I am not going to smack off about my mad skillz, but...

Walked into Wal-Mart this morning and was greeted by a wall of green figures, there are two different ones and like the ones at Target and TRU appear to be going nowhere fast.

How long before Wal-Mart finally gets rid of these Pegwarming radioactive figures (I still see Grinch figs at TRU every year)

Just wanted to direct everyone's attention to the JediDefender newest staff members first review for us...welcome Jesse James and take a look at what he has to say!

No comments on fingers or whatnot since I took the pics  :-*

I tend to agree with a lot you say Jesse the action feature while kind of lame looking actually is really fun to play with.

Watto's Junk Yard / What's Your Ethnicity?
« on: May 14, 2003, 09:09 PM »
It is always interesting to me to see where people have come from in the world.  And to show how much of a melting pot the USA (and Canuckia) actually are...

My Great-Great Grandparents were all immigrants, my Great-Great Grandfather worked for the King of Sweden at one time

Anyway I'm 100% Scandanavian

1/2 Finnish
3/8 Swedish
1/8 Norwegian

My wife's ancestry is 100% German, so my son is:

1/2 German
1/4 Finnish
3/16 Swedish
1/16 Norwegian

The Finns are sort of an odd group of people, they have a language that is almost totally from the rest of Europe

Hey Hasbro! / Fix the Case Assortments...AGAIN

You had it pretty much right during the POTJ days, you screwed it up again during the last part of last year.  Release figures only in on wave and only in one case, there is no need to repack cases again and again with the same pegwarmers...

Watto's Junk Yard / Best CD's of the 90's
« on: May 9, 2003, 09:59 AM »
I'll name my top 5, you can list as many as you want...No real order but these 5 are my cream of the 90's crop

Tom Petty ~ Wildflowers

I broke up with a pretty serious girlfriend in 1996, I must have listened to this CD 200 times, it deals with loss of love, how crappy it makes you feel and how everything will be alright.  Tom's guitar work is amazing and the classic video moment (weeks later Snoop Dogg was blanketing the airwaves  ::))

"So let me get to the point, lets roll another reaara"  

Alice in Chains ~ Jar of Flies

This is an EP so there are only 7 songs on here and 1 is an instrumental.  The 6 songs together though are some of the greatest songs I have ever heard, Layne's lament of spiraling into a hopeless addiction is very evident.  Another CD I could listen to for hours and hours

Smashing Pumpkins ~ Siamese Dream

One of those discs that doesn't have a bad track on it from beginining to the end every song is just balls on solid rock.  How it all lays out and blaneds from song to song is an amazing collection of art.  That to me is one of the greatest parts about CD's too.  This was a staple in the disc changers while playing thousands of games of Sega NHL Hockey.  I abosuletly love this CD

Pearl Jam ~ No Code

Not everyone's favorite Pearl Jam CD, but it is mine.  Kind of goes back to Siamese Dream, the first string of 6 songs are all amoungst my favorite PJ songs:

Hail, Hail
Who You Are (I wish they would still play this in concert)
In My Tree
Off He Goes

The B-Side of the Record is full of some great gems as well, a lot of fans hate this one, one of their worst sellers, I still remember lining up at Best Buy at midnight and listening to No Code all night long.   :'(

Soul Asylum ~ Grave Dancers Union

This CD will always have a special place in my heart...a really special place :-*  

Kubricks / Show me Your Kubes!
