Recent Haul from Book Sale

I’ve got some great buys from my recent trip to Book Sale.  First off was Roger Ebert’s Four-Star Reviews 1967-2007, a massive book on some of Ebert’s highly regarded movies covering a span of 40 years.  Admittedly, I do not agree with some of Ebert’s reviews but in general he was able to nail most of them.  And yes, it was 3 years off but who could argue with its price (P120)?

I was also able to buy 2 glossy mags at P100 apiece.  One a WWE mag that features all of the superstars profiles.  I no longer follow the WWE since HBK left and DX was no more, but I still buy their mags if they interest me.  And this one sure does.

I was in geek heaven when I saw this mag on Twitter Celebrity Profiles.  Although I’m not a heavy Twitter user, I still check on my favorite celebrities tweets every now and then and to have a certified celebrity directory is very handy indeed.

Lastly, I saw a copy of The Bourne Identity as I approach the counter to pay for my stuff, and I bought it as well.  I want to read the original story and not the crap story that they did for the movie versions.

That’s all for now, see you again in my next trip to Book Sale!

Wrestlemania XXIV – Great Show!

WMXXIV Logo

This has got to be one of the best stage set for a Wrestlemania ever! And I mean e-e-e-ver!!! I think I’ve been watching too much WWE. Anyway, I was there since the first Wrestlemania. Ever since IBC 13, with its notorious 6-month delayed show — WWF Superstars, decided to show the 1st ever Wrestlemania on TV (good thing our trusty Betamax was hooked up), I was completely into it!

And now 24 years later, me, my brother and cousins are still fans. So far WMXXIV is the best! Highlights of the night for me are: HBK vs. Ric Flair in a Career Threatening Match, Floyd Mayweather vs. Big Show and the Money in the Bank Ladder Match. For me, the Triple Threat Match between Triple H, Cena and Orton had a lousy ending. Same goes for Undertaker vs. Edge. I don’t think Edge is a main-eventer yet.

But anyways, overall the show is great. The stage and ring sets were awesome. And those grand fireworks — Wow! All these will make you wanna shout ala-Ric Flair, “Whoooooooooo”!!!

Awesome set!
