Today Nickelodeon released the first trailer for the next incarnation of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. These turtles are a bit younger, not as polished in their ninja skills and are not a cohesive team. It is a whole new look, lineup of their roles and more. This time around we have four different turtles. By different I mean the species for each turtle is distinct. I think that they picked great species to represent each turtle, especially for Raphael. He’s definitely a snapping turtle. My first thought on the new designs was that I wasn’t that impressed but the more I see them in action I like the look, especially Raphael. He’s my second favorite turtle but after this series, he may become my favorite. You can see the trailer below. Then below that is the full release from Nickelodeon.
My cousin Nick graduated from High School today. He went to Upper Cape Technical and he’s off to college later this year. Nick is also my godson and I am so proud of him graduating. I went to the Graduation with my Mom and Dad and I, of course, took my camera. I got a pretty decent spot to catch him as he left the stage with his diploma.
After the graduation we swung by the house and picked up Allison and Eva. We then headed over to my grandfather’s house for a graduation party for Nick.
It was really weird being in the house with Grandma not there. I went into her room and expected sort of to see her in her bed. I knew that was ridiculous but it was the first time I had been over since she passed away. Grandpa is doing okay, he has a dog to keep him company, the dog is a little wiener dog named lady.
One thing that I wanted to do for Nick but things didn’t come together as I had hoped, was to give him an e-book by Ed Gerety. The book is called College Crossroads and I thought it would be a wonderful thing to give to Nick on a Flash drive along with the photos I took at the graduation. I gave nick the flash drive and the photos but had some trouble getting the book, I’ll have to give it to Nick later this summer before he heads to school. We also hooked him up with a Bookstore giftcard to help him buy books for school. If they are anything like the books I had to buy he’s gonna need all the money for them he can get.
