Turtle Power

BikeThe girls had plans today so James and I scored some guy time. We started our hot Sunday with an intense morning bike ride. With my bike fully operational and James making up for lost time now that he's finally shed his training wheels, we go on these super fun jaunts along the Humber river trail in Etienne Brule Park and by the Old Mill. It was great, sweaty fun.

We chilled after the bike ride with some lunch and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles circa 1990. Then, after Splinter made his funny, it was a mega baseball tournament on the Wii. I love baseball on the Wii, but it can be frustrating. If I've got a guy on third and I fly out deep to right, why can't I tag up and score? Or even worse, why won't my lead-off triple score when I hit that dribbler down the first base line?

My favourite TMNT anything is that 1990 movie. It's charming fun, from Casey Jones to Splinter himself. And that soundtrack, don't get me started...

Believe it or not, this was a massive worldwide hit for Partners in Kryme reaching #13 on the Billboard Hot 100, #2 on the Hot Rap Singles and #1 on the UK singles chart for four weeks in July 1990. Here's "Turtle Power".

I had that soundtrack on LP, and it was a great listen. A highlight for me was the Shredder theme. The movie is a fun time, but I've found the music hasn't aged as well.

Ya Kid K doing "Spin that Wheel" still sounds okay, but yeah... that whole Snap-y, MC Hammerish rappy dance scene didn't age well at all.

I just had a chance to watch the video. Gotta love how they give the ending away. :)

The song is erroneous. He's got that line about Rafael being the leader. Not true!

I still have most of the lines of that rap memorized... that movie is da bomb. It's a pure homage to the Kung Fu films of the 80s, and has many cool moments.

I think the film still holds up today :)
