Welcome to my little corner of the world, this is where I rant, rave, kvetch or wax on nostalgic about anything and anyone that crosses my path at that moment in time.
Sit down for a bit and read some. If you enjoy what you read, please pass the love on to others so that they may partake in the yummy goodness that lies here.

I remember seeing the OG TMNT back at the Florida Triple with Heather and Jason (neighbors, sister and brother) and we loved it.  So much so that Jason and I could recite word for word the entire movie ad nauseum to the others that have heard it a thousand other times before then.

Fast forward the how many years it was to now...

The Girlfriend and I went to see the new TMNT this past weekend.  She had no interest at all in seeing it but seeing how I had no interest in shutting up about going to see it, she relented and we went.

Now I will say that considering that Michael Bay did Transformers 4 recently, as in a month or so ago, and that it did not meet the expectations that I had set oh so high for it; so, my expectations for the new TMNT was considerably lower.

This TMNT was a little different with the origin story that us old folk have known for all these years but it was only a small change in my opinion.  It was also different in the fact that there weren't people in foam rubber turtle costumes acting but people in caption motion suits doing that acting and the 'turtle' being cgi'd over the actors later.

There was also Meghan Fox playing a remake of the mannequin from Mannequin in mannequin form.  She was confused why she was called O'Neill throughout the shooting but she powered through like the professional that she is.

Overall, I highly recommend the movie if you liked the original TMNT.  Forgive the alterations they did to the origins but relish in the characters of the turtles, the action and the Shredder.

When I started this site, my intention was for this site to be my way of becoming free financially through adverts or through becoming well enough to have the site as a pay per view type of thing.  Neither idea of which materialized to the point of becoming viable on a monetary stand point. 

I then took the idea of the site towards another imagining for a means for me to use it as a means to be free in my writing, not to shoe horn myself into a particular style or set of commentary.  If I wanted to journal goings on of my life, boom, there it was; if I wanted to wretch about social, economic or other matters of the world, boom; if I wanted to write stories, I do.  Albeit, in recent times, I have neglected this blog for a good bit of times, without nary a word or thought from myself towards it; I would use the excuse of not having the time but the truth was the time was there, I was being lazy.

As for the freedom that the title of this posting garners, I am debt free as of this month.  My place that I've been working at for the past eight years has been sold and in the process, my 401k was termed; I was luckily not termed.  This left me with choices, I could roll it into an IRA, cash out or just keep it going without being able to add more to it and without any company add in either.  After some tough consideration, I decided to cash out, this could be a mistake income tax wise but I was able to pay off some debt and become debt free.  Aside from some monthly subscription bills (cell, dish, insurance, etc., etc.), I am free financially.

This is has taken so much stress off of me not having to decide from one paycheck to the next what to do with the rest of the paycheck after bills are paid; necessities that are needed, vehicle needs, etc.
