The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Mutant Turtles
Posted on Wednesday, February 28 2007 @ 19:31:04 PST

Most people who grew up during the same time as I did wanted to be one of the four Ninja Turtles. I think I was more Donatello, but I wanted to be Michelangelo back then. Something about nunchunks rock. Now I think Raphael is incredible bad-ass. But with TMNT returning this March 28th, I'm concerned over their relevance. In a way, their return on the silver screen is a gamble at rekindling nostalgia, as they have tried with multiple re-creations in both animation and video games. A part of me wants to believe that they will be successful all over again, albeit in CG-format and a thinner form, but the other part of me doesn't want the turtles to be worn out any further than they have already. It's just as I feel about all the hope about a FFVII re-make. But all this gamut of emotions is just in line with how I've been clean from fanboyism for more than six years. So any reservations about the turtles coming back are a part of being disillusioned from blind optimism. The turtles aren't really 'teenage' anymore.
