Cowabunga Dude!

So, ChickenPopPod happened to tweet this link today.

I got excited and disgusted at the same time. So, now, I'm torn.

I grew up watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. They were AWESOME! And I was SO EXCITED when the movie came out! (and it was pretty cool that I lived one town over from Northampton, MA where the Turtles were created).

Anyways, the first movie was EXCELLENT for something that was from an Independent Company. Not a huge budget, but a lot of entertainment.

The second movie... well... Not as great as the first. Most sequels aren't.

The third... well... I don't even like to acknowledge that it exists (kinda like the Home Alone series)

TMNT
was great! It went back to what made the Turtle franchise awesome! I was Shell Shocked afterwards. In fact, I went to see it TWICE in the theaters (that's unheard of from me with movie prices hitting $11, and you can now only use a college discount on THURSDAYS).

Now, the announcement of ANOTHER movie? And going back to this whole "Live Action" thing... If it was another animated, I'd be excited, especially if it was done in the same fashion as TMNT. But, my fear is it's going to be as bad as Turtles in Time. I guess only time will tell... Check back in 2011 for what I think of it. 'Cuz you know I'll HAVE to see it.

I'm going straight!

Straight, not heterosexual, that is :)

I just got word that my Invisalign treatment videos are in. I figured I'd share them with y'all.

This is the front view of what my teeths are going to look like. Specifically look at the left side. It almost looks as if I was hit on that side with a frying pan to knock my teeths in that far. But they're coming out to normal. The spots on my teeth are where they're going to have to put "attachers." These will come out

For the top view, tooth #8 is my biggest complaint. It's like halfway over another tooth. Very difficult to keep clean.

And, finally for the bottom view. I have some serious crookedness going on there. That big major crookedness next to the incisors on the left has bugged me for years. And it's not particularly easy to floss that.

Plus, they're going to be doing some minor shaving of my teeths for spacing. Not sure how I feel about that (since I know it'll mean things like "Novocaine" that didn't work on my lower right side).

So, I should be all good. I've got 14 upper trays and 17 lower trays coming to me. That means I'm going to be in them for 34 weeks. That means by the New Year, I might have a much better smile!
