Motley Crue in Halifax: March 2nd at the Metro Centre!!!

OMG!!! A F'n decent concert is coming to Halifax!!! Tickets for this are going on sale December 3rd at 9:00 AM...too bad my sources do not say where to purchase tickets..i guess that dude's online petition to get the Crue here worked eh? Man i believe the year was 1983 when i was just a Little Old Man Robb (Maybe i was a "Young Man Robb"???) Anyways i remember being in my old junior high cafeteria at EPJH where people would bring ghettoblasters everyday and crank out metal all morning...kinda like a competition...i know, sounds silly. Anyways i remember hearing the Crue, along with Quiet Riot and Ratt and Robbo's metal years were good and on...they were started somewhat before that...but this is when it went kinda over the edge...no i did not wear studded braclets and biker hats (Them guys resembled Freddie Mercury more than metalheads) But i was ever faithful to loud music, buying up every tape, record and t-shirt i could find with my lawnmowing and allowence money. I am glad the Crue is finally coming here..it is at least 22 years overdue, but now it is happening..moralists beware! Posted by Picasa

Yeah...Old Man Robb is Here..

Hello there bloggos! What has Old Man Robb been up to? Well i took it upon myself to go check out some good ol'fashioned Maritime Wrestling last weekend in Canning at the old high school there, i believe it is now the community centre. It was fun, i never knew so many people could fit into such a small space eh? And it was being taped for a future showing on the new Fight Network! So how many days till Merry Ho ho? Exactly 25! But Old Man Robb is supposed to suck at math remember! Well i have the day off and i have accomplished absolutely nothing so far, took the dogs for a walk here in good ol Middleton..and that is about it! The hockey Axemen went 2 and o over the weekend and are now off until they go to play the Alberta Golden Bears in late Decemeber, maybe my brother will get me a t-shirt or something and it will arrive at the same time when my sister promised to get me a Washington Huskies t-shirt about three years ago. Finally rented the Trailer Park Boys Christmas dvd over the weekend, man i roared seeing Mr Lahey get trashed and putting a grocery bag on for a Santa beard! Plus when the boys used Lahey's Christmas decorations to help out with Bubbles bonfire. Well what a world eh? The ol Canadian government is literally falling apart, does Stephen Harper wear a wig? That so cannot be his real hair. Oh well..what is going to happen...lemmie think..i got it! Once again 30% of Canadians will cast their ballots and 100% of Canadians will complain about the outcome.....no matter who wins. I hear people talk and talk and talk.. If people will put down their donuts, come out of the coffee shop and actually go vote for a change, then maybe we shall see some progress, now if as per usual, people do not go out and vote, then they have absolutely no right to bitch, moan and drip about how hard done by they are or who is doing what to whom...oh well..had to vent that eh?
Anyways got to get moving, go have a shower, go for a walk and do something productive with me ol' day off...have a good one!

PS- Go see the teaser for the upcoming Trailer Park Boys movie!!!

I Am Back So Says I

Hey there bloggeroos! What is Old Man Robb up to? Well i have been spending some time at home, my Dad has not been feeling well and i am helping out a bit around the house. Yesterday i went up to the old alma mater as in ol' Acadiau and handing in a resume as well as filling out an application for a position with Sodexo Marriot working in administrative. Hope it goes ok. I walked around and chatted it up with people i knew, you know you have been in a spot a long time when the people at the bookstore, employment office and coffee house know you by name..ahhh Old Man Robert Hawley. Besides i promised my nephew that i would take him up to Wheelock some time to eat...hope the old school Tator Tot Casserole is on the menu!!!! Has a bit of a ring to it eh? Well tomorrow i am getting paid and heading out to get some Christmas shoppping done. As tempted as i am to grow the world's greatest mullet ever, i am getting my mop chopped tomorrow at 1:00 and probably heading tomorrow night up to see WWR wrestling in Canning...looks like it has the potential to be fun and it is being taped for a showing at a later date on the new Fight Channel here in Canada. Along with WWE 24/7 i so need these channels.. Thank god Jiri Fisher of the Red Wings was ok after collapsing on the bench a couple of nights ago, imagine what a public relations nightmare it would have been for the league if something tragic would have happened. Oh my working tonight, Saturday and Sunday...anyone want to trade places? Well i was going to go to the Axemen game on Saturday night, but i am going to spend time at home instead, the radio is a good substitute, it is good to see that ALL the games are being broadcast now, that year i spent in Mount A was depressing on the hockey front, except for the three times Old Man Russell picked me up and took me to Moncton to see the Wildcats, i saw no live hockey all year and then last year at Acadia, the games were not being broadcast on the internet at all, so there was no sitting in the library on the night of road games and being able to listen in while i finished up another successful (or semi-successful) term paper. I joined up with a new site called Gradfinder the other day, it is tempting to contact some of the people on there, peopple i haven't seen for a lifetime! Other people i would not give the time of day to if the damn place was buring down, yes Old Man Robb can hold a grudge sometimes, silly? yes...but the hate for some is still there... Hey! Motley Crue is coming to Hfx on March 3rd or something like that and tickets for the show are $61 Canadian!!!!?!?!?!?!?!?! Man i hope they get a sold out show! That way promoters will be tempted to bring in more old school metal acts to Hfx, man Motorhead rocked last year and it would be good to see some people like the re-formed Judas Priest head out this way or to see Alice Cooper make a return to metro, i wanna go see the Crue and maybe some of the old gang from the ol' Passage will be there eh? Anyways gang, gots to go..have a good one!

PS- See the new SUPERMAN trailer!!!

Hey There!

Hello people! What have i been up to? Well family stuff, my Dad is getting out of the hospital, he was in over the weekend due to a lack of iron and the hospital decided to keep him overnight, visiting hours are at 11:00 this morning and hopefully he will be home this afternoon. It is the the time of year where you don't want to see this stuff happen, esp with X-mass right around the corner..what is it now? ummmm 33 days? Jeesh, so one wants to see the family around this time of year be good and somewhat healthy. What else is happening? Well the Football Axemen lost to the Laurier Golden Hawks on Saturday 31-10 up in Hfx at Huskie Stadium, so while there will be no trip for the Axemen to the Vanier Cup in Hamilton on December 3rd, we must at least be happy that we won the Atlantic for the first time since 1995 is it? Anyways congrats are in order, the hockey Axemen split their roadtrip and are back here on the weekend. I have not decided what i am doing this weekend with Friday night off, i can go see the Axemen play against SMU or go to wrestling in Canning...that's right Friday night wrestling in Canning, i will ask my nephew if he wants to go if he isn't too busy being in the hood this weekend. Anyways the Axemen do play STFX on Saturday night and i work till 6:00 so maybe i can make it out to that one. Dunker called and asked if i wanted to see a movie last night, but with Dad staying overnight in the hospital i decided agaisnt it...besides there really isn't much out that i wanna see right now anyways. On the video front, the Fantastic Four and Dukes of Hazzard are both coming out on the 6th of December so there are at least some dvd's that i am looking forward to, plus my Mom wants to know where she can find the newest Rock Em Sock Em Hockey Dvd hosted by Don Cherry...i think it has to be up to number 20 or something like that by now. I went to see the West Kings game last Tuesday only to be told that the game was cencelled because the team was in a tournament...would have been nice if they had left a message or something eh? Oh my, anyways the laundry is in and i have to go catch a shower, working the next two nights here in rocking Middleton .........whoooooooooo! Anyways have a good one!

Ain't No Fun Waiting Round to be a Millionaire

Hello webslingers! Well well..i could get used to this eh? The Axemen as football champs and the Habs at the top of the Eastern Conference! Well i must digress with something, this being Macleans Magazine and their rankings of the top universities in Canada. Well Acadia U is 3rd overall...again, now STFX is #1 as always, don't really have a problem with that as they seem to be #1 every year and the people were really nice to me when i was down there for the Beach Boys concert this summer, even though the guy working the ticket booth had no idea where the concert was being held..(hint..it was right behind the building) but once again, Mount Allison is #2, ahead of Acadia...now i have friends at Mount Allison, i made quite a few of them while living there in residence in 2003-04 and i really enjoyed my Friday and Saturday nights at CHMA rising "Assume The Position" back from the dead...(Take that Radio Acadia!...RIP) however while having fun in res, as a matter of fact one of my funnest years ever in res and the airwaves, ummmm...nope not really lots of fun there, lousy classes, an uncaring faculty, lack of services, no breakfest on the weekends till almost noon, no library open till 1:00 on the weekends, coffee shop that closed at 4 every day..ummmm...see once i left the res..things were not that awesome and so i am still left to wonder where this great rating came from...i hear the science department is pretty good, but i am not a scientist.

Wow...can Old Man Robb rant or what?

Did we win BIG at Football or what?

Is Superman really a dick?


In other news, i turned on the computer yesterday after work to find out WWE Superstar Eddie Guerrero was found dead of heart failure at his hotel room in Minneapolis...how many wrestling stars are going to die at very young ages until there is a full blown investigation into professional wrestling in the United States? It just seems lately, Hawk, Rick Rude, Curt Henning, The British Bulldog amongst others are all not with us anymore...why? I know it is sports entertainment, but c'mon now...the NHL, NFL, Major League Baseball and all kinds of other forums of entertainment do not have the problems that currently plague professional wrestling.
Oh well...they could be having Green Puppies?!?!?! Not much else happening, stayed home Friday during the day to help celebrate my Mom's b-day with some pizza from Greco and just basically hung out. I have tomorrow off, i am going up to Acadia to check in on some stuff, check the job bank...there is a West Kings game at 4:00 tomorrow, so i may stop by to check that out for old times sakes, there is a game in Kingston Friday night for sure, so i might possibly check that out seeing as i have Friday night off and stuff. I was thinking of taking next Friday off to go see the Axemen play SMU or i might just wait till Saturday night on the 26th and drive to Wolfville to witness the Axemen taking on STFX at 7:30... i dunno..there is wrestling in Canning on the 25th..a Friday, but i am not too sure what is happening yet schedule wise.

Call me an old student? I think my American counterpart has to be Johnny Lechner! Maybe i should forget life and go back to Acadia for a few more years just to catch Johnny's records eh? Mr Lechner has 242 credits...i have 150...i have lots of catching up to do ..92 credits to go!

Anyhow...that is all for now folks! Have a good one

The Acadia Axemen are your 2005-06 AUFC Football Champions! Yes folks, 9:00 yesterday morning i arrived at Acadia Arena with one goal in mind, to score a ticket for yesterday's championship game...people said i was nuts, no way was i going to get a ticket...blah blah blah..hah! Well i scored one and i never used it as i stood anyways and watched the Axemen stomp STFX 69-6 in front of about 3,000 people! It was good, i remember the last time was 1995 against STFX and i was there then too! Now the Axemen will not meet the Laurier Golden Hawks at the 2005 Uteck Bowl hosted by Atlantic University Sport at Huskie Stadium next week on Saturday, Nov. 19. The Hawks defeated the Western Mustangs 29-11 in the Yates Cup. Posted by Picasa

I Think it is Monday Today

Hello webslingers and peeps from all the wonderful bounds of hell! Well what has been a happening? Well there is one momma of a football game between Acadia and STFX that is going to be taking place at Raymond Field this Saturday and Old Man Robb is going to be there be there be there! I promise i won't bring a megaphone either! They are cracking down on rowdy fans...funny because people used to bitch that we were some of the quietest fans in the league, now we cannot make any noise...weird...well it was due to the namecalling directed towards the STFX coach there a few weeks ago..well no name calling could be as bad as that in the original SlapShot!!! ...by the way i was at the last finals held at Raymond Field some ten years ago doing camera work while i was under the spell of the B***H of the Baskervilles...wasted years eh? I read a pretty scathing article on the Mount Allison football team by Sir Alex J the other day...hey what is it with all the recent Alex J stuff anyways? Well i did havea chance to go to the ABI, Atlantic Broadcasting Institute years ago, was accepted and everything, but declied and went a year later to K-Tech...a waste of time? What do you think? I dunno which would have been better or for worse, all in the past anyways eh? Anywho the article was nasty, talking about raising monies for the team, how come MTA doesn't raise more than $10,000 when SMU is raising more than $150,000 per year...smells kinda fishy eh? Me and Dad watched "Waking Up Wally: The Walter Gretzky" story last night on tv, it was really good, it was scary seeing how a stroke can really mess up a person, as in losing their memories. Man was i sick on Saturday, yet i managed to soldier on through an entire nine hour shift before coming home and doing my best Exorcist impression for everyone. So what am i up to this week? Well i work today, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday. So no little time for anything, plus putting new brake pads on the Jeep and hey...i have tomorrow off! I may get back to the job hunt, i applied for those two jobs at Acadia and November 3rd was the cut-off date, so i may go back up tomorrow and borrow my parents van to do so...maybe put on my dress pants and dress shirt and make a wholehearted effort to at least look half-decent....i picked up the Beavis and Butthead boxset the other day...a tad disappointed i am because it is not a regular season one boxset, it is 40 of Mike Judge's favorite episodes and do to copyright issues, they only get to make fun of like 10 music videos...the parts where they would rip up videos by Duran Duran and others was one of my favorite parts of the entire show! Still it has where they pruned Mr Anderson's house, so that is good. Anyways i have to get ready cause i am going Christmas shopping this afternoon and then to work, have a good one slingers!

PS- Rock & Roll Radio with the Ramones!

No Fun

Hey gang and peeps! Yes yes Old Man Robb is back and is loopier than ever! Well how are things? I have submitted electronically because i was told to do so two jobs to Acadia Alumni, will they pick Old Man Robb? Maybe...maybe not, one was a part time job and the other was a full blown, full time position...cannot see the full time one cause i don't think i fit the criteria, i am different, not a machine and that may go against me. There are people i would love to work with, and others that i could not see me being in the same room with for more than a good five minutes. I am glad that we beat STFX last weekend in football to host the finals for the first time since 1995, i was just reading the Daily News and ol' Alex J just ripped into both teams. STFX players were dancing on the Acadia logo in the middle of the field and that nearly erupted into a per six brawl from what i am told. And ol Alex J ripped Acadia fans a new one for some duragatory chants made at the STFX coach and his relatives. Now as a fan going to sporting event, i am used to seeing chants, at old West Kings games back in the early 90s, when the score was good and ran up the fans used to chant, "It's all your fault!" at the oppositions goaltender and people made an issue of that. However cutting down someone's personal life, that is just nasty. I remember hearing Craig Mactavish talk about an old playoff series with the Calgary Flames where one or two Flames players made remarks to him about his criminal conviction and imprisonment for vehicular homicide back in 1984-85. I went to see the Axemen play the Moncton Blue Eagles on Saturday night, Moncton was playing their first game since Sebastian Savage of the Blue Eagles was recently paralyzed in an incident against Acadia on Oct 22. The hometown Axemen fans gave the Blue Eagles a standing ovation and it was also nice to see the 1992-93 Axemen get inducted into the Acadia sports hall of fame, however the Blue Eagles just did not look into the game at all and we won easily by a score of 6-2. I left with a good five minutes left to play as it was hard to watch the Blue Eagles looking like they were just skating around and i do believe the Axemen really could have run up the score if they had really wanted to. I think it was in the Daily News or Chronically Horrid that the UPEI women's hockey team was recently beaten 21-0 by STFX and the column writer stated that STFX ran up the score in the third period...ummmmmmm the score was already 15-0 dude at the end of the second, i think the score had been run up! Well i went to the Greenwood Mall..i mean that place with like five dollar stores... yeah that is it and picked up a copy of the dvd, Ramones- The End of the Century...really good documentary about the group, man does Richie Ramone look different in that suit and tie...Tommy Ramone looks like Jerry Garcia or something like that..it expanded on the Johnny-Linda- Joey love triangle, for those who do not know...Johnny Ramone stole Joey's girlfriend away from him around 1980-81 and eventually married her, Joey's worst nightmare and he and Johnny basically never talked ever again..sad eh?According to the film, Joey never got over the heartache. And now the Ramones are more famous than ever, i mean when i got into the band big time around the mid to end of the 80s, my heavy metal loving Passage friends made fun of me...ummmm..did they see how some of their favorite bands looked? Don't stir the kettle black! Anyways this stuff was never leaked to fans, even though their was really no internet back then either. Had to work Halloween night, did have time to get dressed up in the Jason get-up and scare the daylights out of one of my co-workers, what i find is the saddest and well...makes me the most pissed off about Halloween is that i love seeing the little kids all dressed up, it really is for them, but to see teenagers that are not dressed up, wearing backwards baseball caps and baggy jeans on good people's doorsteps demanding candy? Little jerks, could lay the smackdown on some of them. To me that takes away from the fun and wonder of Halloween...at least my nephew got dressed up (As a PIMP!!! Who does he think he is? Huggy Bear?) Teenagers get caught at those ages like 14-16, they are not adult yets and places in town don't want them around because they all get painted with the same brush. Then again teenagers don't really help themselves by loitering around town, doing wheelies off our front steps..which leads straight out into traffic by the way! I guess i am being an armchair critic, but i don't remember loitering as much as teens do today, many just go to the mall, but to me our mall is boring as hell, i only go if i am going to buy something. I think it is just a lazy generation, facinated by crappy rap videos and video games, sadly many will go to university where people will laugh at them. I mean we did our fair share of laughing at new kids when they came to residence and thought they had all the answers about life, how to study, how to get ahead when none of them had ever pumped gas or stocked a shelf, or worked behind a counter in a store, or washed dishes or delivered pizzas for the Pizza Nazi amongst various other jobs, i used to deliver pizzas half the night and then go change uniforms and clean the local radio station at night! And i really wanted to get my post-secondary education, i worked for it! Can you imagine giving up all the weekends that i did to come home and work? I never went to a formal until my 4th year of university, i NEVER went to the Christmas/ Snowball formal cause i always had to work! No Christmas Dinner until my 3rd year of university either. Sheesh...kids huh? Just like my nephew went to a party instead of going to the game with me on Saturday night, instead of learning something from others, it is just an excuse to be lazy, can't even get the little bugger out of bed to rake leaves, instead i did it all myself...ahh it is the generation gap... we had to work for stuff, the internet, dvd's, video games- great gadgets and all, but things are so convienient now for kids and we are laughed at, us old men...well we shall all see whom gets the last laugh. I am thinking about taking in a West Kings game some time, i see that they need all the support they can get from the looks of the standings. They play Middleton right hre in town at the Middleton Arena on the night of the 12th at 7:30 so maybe when i am done with the Acadia-STFX game, which i took the day off to go watch, then i will come home and catch some old time high school hockey! Anyways then later...have a good one friends and foes!!!
