Man I'm having a fun time here at planet Buttonhole! I have a heap of games and dvds to keep me amused, almost more than I know what to do with! I'll be reviewing them all, as I promised last week, starting today.
Speaking of reviews, Mugwai would have to have been Buttonhole's recent "MVP" in that regard thanks to his Xbox Punisher and Hero DVD articles. Nice one dude, I enjoyed reading both of those.
I hope you all read the Q&A with Scott Tipton from Movie Poop Shoot. Scott has been a big help to us. They seem to go over well, and I really dig them myself, so we will be having more Q&A sessions soon. Keep an eye out for them.
I went to see the live WWE show in Melbourne featuring the Smackdown roster on Friday night. It was a really fun show. I especially liked the Kurt Angle vs. Booker T match and the Eddie Guerrero vs. Rey Mysterio one. Seeing the Big Show live was cool too, just due to the sheer size of the bastard. John Cena got a huge reaction from the crowd, he was easily the most popular dude on the night. I hope the Gimmick (who was also in the audience- somewhere closer to the ring than me!) didn't get too upset about that. He's not much of a Cena fan.
I paid 35 bucks for a program at the show. It is just a book of photos of the wrestlers. So, yeah I basically paid $35 for a bunch of glossy pictures of half naked blokes (though there are a couple of girls in it too at least) that I will probably never look at again. Not one of the better value purchases I've ever made, but I guess it is good to have some kind of a souvenir of the occasion. Anyway, I really hope the WWE comes back down under again soon. If they did a TV taping here, or a Pay Per View, I reckon it would be awesome.
I want to share this great email I got the other day:
I loved your review
of the G Force movies, it brought back a lot of memories-except the undie shots of Princess-
(I am a married,pregnant female!!)
I was wondering how I can go about buying this DVD set, and thought you might know of a seller in Australia???
Any help will be much appreciated.
Many thanks. Melanie.
That is the kind of mail I love to get. Not just because it was complimentary, but it is just always helpful when people let us know what they are interested in. I exchanged a couple more emails with Melanie and let her know where she could purchase that particular DVD. In turn she helped me out by telling me which aspects of Buttonhole she found most appealing. I hope she (and her kid-to-be) has fun watching Battle of the Planets. Thanks again for your feedback Melanie.
As you are all no doubt aware,Star Wars Episode 3 is getting closer all the time and, like most geeks, I'm getting pretty excited about it. The preview really sucks you in doesn't it?
Well, I have a whole lot of reviews to write, so I'll leave it there. See you all again next week!
