“You ever feel the need for something more, whenever we come crashing at your door, you ever stop and wonder what it is you’re searching for.”
I have finally seen Man of Steel and let me tell you this is the best Superhero film I have ever seen. My rankings are below:
And this scene here… this scene is so BEAUTIFUl. WOW.
Man of Steel was so good…that NOW I’m worried that Batman v. Superman will mess this up due to how Dark Batman has to be. Ugh. Batman. Of course I have my own issues with the character which I’ll post another day…
1) Man of Steel
2) Superman II (Richard Donner cut)
3) Spider-Man 3
4) Spider-Man 2
5) Batman (Christopher Nolan films)
6) X-Men: Days of Future’s Past
As one of my mother’s favorites comics you best believe I will be in the theatres this August to see this…
Also… because seeing this movie pisses off racists. So I’m definitely watching.
Needed to put this somewhere because I heard this version of this song for the first time last night and it brought me to tears because of how beautiful it is. Brandy loves herself some coldplay and I think has covered a few of their songs. This was easily one of the best.
“I call it magic, and I call it true. Call it magic.” Love is so beautiful!
I thought this would be a great time and place to put all my favorite Wrestlemania Matches on those days like today where I don’t feel like working or going out. Let’s get started on the matches that really make Wrestlemania mean so much to me. This should get you started on a primer on why I love wrestling so much. And why I’ll be there at Wrestlemania 32!!!
Wrestlemania 6: Hulk Hogan vs. The Ultimate Warrior (THIS MATCH…THIS MATCH made me fall in love with Wrestlemania!!)
Wrestlemania X8: The Rock Vs. Hulk Hogan (My all time favorite match!!!!)
Wrestlemania 2000: Fatal 4 Way Elimination Match for the WWE Championship
Wrestlemania 2000: TLC 1
Wrestlemania 17: TLC 2
Wrestlemania 18: Undertaker vs. Ric Flair
Wrestlemania 20: Eddie Guerrero vs. Kurt Angle
Wrestlemania 24: Shawn Michaels vs Ric Flair
Wrestlemania 25: Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels (My 2nd Favorite all time match!!)
Wrestlemania 28: The Rock vs. John Cena
Wrestlemania 30: Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H.
We have to set the scene by taking it back to Wrestlemania 28. A wrestle mania that I presumably could have flown down to Miami attend and it didn’t work out.
Ever since that day, I’ve long kicked myself for not attending or at least being in my favorite city to watch the showcase of the immortals. And yet, another chance has been presented to me. 4 years later. 4 long years later after everything I’ve gone through, I have the chance to make a dream, a life long dream a reality.
It’s a perfect storm. I graduate in 2016. One month before, Wrestlemania comes to Dallas, Tx. And I will be there. AT & T stadium. 100,000 strong. And I will be there. This thing that I’ve wanted to do since I was 5, and now I have a chance at 35 to do so. I’m going to Wrestlemania y’all!
This is such a big deal, that it’s helping to breathe new life into my blog. I’m starting a new series here entitled, “The Road to Wrestlemania”. I hope it charts my experiences from the shock of actually purchasing tickets, to seeing the hall of fame and of course buying WWE gear. I want a public online sphere where I can look back on and see the year long journey that it took for me to get here.
I’m going to wrestlemania, y’all. And it means more to me than anything!
My family has always watched wrestling since I was kid. My parents would attend wrestling shows all throughout the state, anywhere from Charlotte to Greensboro. All the greats: Wahoo McDaniels, Ric Flair (WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!), Dusty Roads. As a family, we were so fanatical about wrestling. I remember putting my oldest sister into several wrestling moves all the time. My youngest sister, too!
The first time I really fell in love with the pageantry though had to be Wrestlemania 6. That’s when little 5 year old me became a true Hulkamaniac.
Who will ever forget any of the Undertaker vs HBK matches?
Or my personal favorite WM match: The Rock vs. Hulk Hogan. To think I have a chance to sit in the arena and watch this. I’m just so over joyed!! (ask my baby, who I keep telling her over and over, “We’re going to Wrestlemania, baby.) So I’m hoping to really use this forum as a way to express and talk about what it feels to accomplish this dream…one month before accomplishing an even bigger one: Graduating.
2016 is my moment. And the Road to Wrestlemania 32 has begun.
