Aaron Pritchett’s New Frontier.
I was sitting in front of the tv, eating a lite dinner and flicking through the channels when I stopped at TenSports. They were showing classic wresting matches and today they were showing a match between my favourite wrestler of all time, Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart and, his younger brother, the late Owen Hart. As wrestling fans will know, Owen met with a tragic death 9 years ago in Kansas City, falling from the ceiling in an entrance stunt that went wrong. But his memory lives on in the hearts of his family, friends & wrestling fans all over the world.
The match in particular was one in a steel cage at SummerSlam 1994 for the world heavyweight title, held by the older Hart. The two brothers went at it in front of their parents, brothers, sisters & brother-in-law Davy ‘British Bulldog’ Smith. It was a truly great match and finally, with both brothers hanging on the outside of the cage, Bret banged Owen’s head against the steel and jumped to the ground, the victor. The Anvil then attached Smith and together with Owen, pushed Bret back into the cage and beat him up after locking the door. The other Hart brothers tried to interfere and finally were able to chase the Anvil & Owen.
It was a great match between great wrestlers. Brought back memories of a fine person and a great wrestler. Still missing you, Owen!

Rain, rain & more rain. It started 2 days ago, with the day being very cloudy and warm and by night it just started pouring like crazy. It had rained day before yesterday night too but that was nothing compared to last night. There was thunder & lightning for a few hours yesterday morning & night well. After I reached home yesterday, it started to pour and must have gone all night. The morning was ok but I new it was gonna pour. By 12:15 pm I was in Cafe Coffee Day with a novel and having a brownie along with my choco frapper when I looked to my side and saw the sky was so dark with clouds pregnant with rain.
The floodgates opened and it started to shower quite a lot. I sat in the coffeeshop for a long time sipping my coffee and reading and wanting to avoid going out. When it slowed down to a steady trickle, I got into an auto and went to the barber shop. Man the roads were filled with ankle high water. I had to walk in that water to get to the shop from the main road – just a few hundred meters since the auto wouldn’t go on that lane – and my shoes filled up with water and my socks….well, let’s just leave it at that.
I had a hair cut and then waded through the rain water and walked to the bar to get some food and a few drinks. I had vodka (Sharktooth since they didn’t have any MGM) and sprite and an American chopsuey. The food was delicious, more tastier than usual, with more veggies as well. I love boiled carrots!
I’m 2 years late in watching this movie (which is only important for a big budget production) but I’ll give you my 2 cents worth of comments on the film:
- I was one of the huge skeptics who lambasted the choice of Daniel Craig as being a dumb choice – I was wrong! I think he did a great job
- Casino Royale did extremely well in the box office; grossing $593 million worldwide, it became the highest grossing James Bond film. But it isn’t Golden Eye and it isn’t that good.
- Even with my new found admiration for Craig, Peirce Brosnan will always be my fav bond. Not Moore, not Dalton & not Connery.
- The running chase scene towards the beginning of the movie, is probably the best that I have ever seen.
- There are two very hot Bond girls but Caterina Murino is a fox!
- However I don’t think that Craig will be as successful in other ventures like Brosnan or Connery did.
- I think I would rank it among the top 5 Bond Films so far!
