Happy Halloween!!!!

An old centerfold from the sadly missed "Terrorzone"..captured in their 80s haydayin the guise of their sequels from 1986 and 1988 are Leatherface from Texas Chainsaw Massacre II, Jason from Friday The 13th Part VII, Freddy from A Nightmare on Elm Street IV and Micheal Myers from Halloween IV. If horror had the merchandising it has today, this would have been likely sold besides AC/DC and Iron Maiden posters at places like A&M Records and Tapes and would have been a zillion dollar seller!!!

"Positive anything is better than negative nothing." – Elbert Hubbard

Hey there my peeperonies! What is a new? Well long time eh? I've been a busy boy working working and working, but as Joey Ramone proudly wrote in 1981, "It's Not My Place in The 9 to 5 World." Yes the lure of more education is eating away at Old Man Robert Reid Hawley Esquire like a fart in the car, esp with Fort Kent sending more brocures, am i a shoo in? Actually believe it or not true believers, Fort Kent just called me tonight! They gave me all kinds of contacts as well, they seem to geuinely want me to come there and that is why i am favoring them at this moment in time. Well i get in? Well now, i think so...but do they think so too? My sister was down for a visit from the mighty metropolis of Seattle and she would like to see me go become a Huskie at the University of Washington, but i would need a student loan of Trump proportions in order to land a deal there i thinks. So again it is down to 2...Acadia and or Fort Kent. Well me and my pocket sized pal are just a hanging around, we took a spin up Windsor way, the Hall of Fame was closed, but she was in a daze starting at all the Maple Laughs...i mean Maple Leafs stuff that is there in a display case inside. We went down to the waterfront Tims and hung out on the trains that are on display there. On Saturday me and my pally went to see the Axemen get beat at Raymond Field by STFX by a score of 42-20...sad that i have taken her to 2 games in a row only to see my precious Axemen beaten both times...i teased her that she had a new man by the name of HOTPANTS at the game, who had to be seen to be believed! He was no Retardo Montalban...but then again who is eh? LOL!!!! Then after the game we took a spin over to the VIL and had a brewsky, her first time ever there and she seemed to dig the legend that is is the Anvil in Wolfville, she was infatuated with the Vilmobile that seems to sit very silently outside...i feel bad her Laughs had their asses waxed by Washington 7-1 the other night, like have they ever scored 7 goals in a fricken game ....ever? I took both her and my Momma out to dinner on Saturday before the game at the Irving Big Stop in New Minas, lots of memories of being there with my folks, esp those MONSTER pieces of pie they would serve, actually i had taken my Mom out on Thursday to eat as well at the Mid Valley Motel...sheesh..son of the year i am becoming eh? Well Acadia is still on strike as like i said the Gobblygooker is toast there, contract up and getting out while the getting is frickin good i say, i heard the boos and witnessed the eyerolling when she was introduced to the crowd on Saturday, some day that she was left with a mess by Ogilthorpe, but she has done some messing of her own...who else has had 2 strikes during their presidential regime? Who? According to the Acadia Alumni email i got the issues are as follows, "The issues that must be resolved are complex and are driven by declining enrolment and budget constraints for the University and a desire to reach national and regional salary competitiveness and stable employment levels for the faculty." Enrollment for Acadia is on the decline, there used to be a waiting list of 300 just to get into Tower as recently as 2001-02...it is a mess up there and the ones i feel sorry for is the student body who may just yet have their year flushed down the tubes as talks have yet again broken off... by the way....

NOVA went bankrupt
Karma has a sick sick sense of humor, i scratch your back, you stab me in mine eh? Well now the UN was getting involved in sending f'n relief packages for some 1000 teachers who are stranded in Japan, the worst mass outbreak of unemployment the country has ever seen. It is weird eh? I come home and the next month the checks start to bounce. I feel sorry for those stranded there, and it is finger pointing time too and lots of shrugging of shoulders as well, people who said quitter and all kinds of BS are not saying much now, i felt the writing was on the wall and i just maybe there was a helping hand from above, maybe the voice of my Father saying son get the hell outta there by any means necessary. Call it a vision, call it crazy Old Man Robb...call it whatever...call it i am here now and very much in the drivers seat of my destiny. Ran into someone the other day who didn't know that Taco Bell was a real restaurant, thought it was just in the movie Demolition Man with Stallone and Wesley Snipes...some people need to get out more...Rented Grindhouse the other night, watched Death Proof and Planet Terror, they are a tribute to the old school B and C flicks i loved as a kid, but man none of those flicks cost some 60 million to make and starred A list stars like Kurt Russell and or Bruce Willis...man was Russell's character a wuss at the end of Death Proof? I expected a bit better from ol Snake, loved the car though, ol Quintin, good flicks but never was much for original ideas, liked Planet Terror a bit better, but my favorite part of both flicks were the trailers for Machete and esp for Thanksgiving!!! Felt just like watching an old school 70s/80s trailer like My Bloody Valentine/ Graduation Day and or The Prowler. I guess originally Quintin wanted Stallone for the role of Stuntman Burt...i mean Mike, but was too busy...probably saw the ending and figured no way was he jobbing to those chicks! LOL! Well folks i am going to go grab me a Timmy's and watch the Habs continue their winning ways...have a good one!

The Revenge of Robert Reid Hawley

"There are only two tragedies in life: one is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it." - Oscar Wilde

Hello folks! What is a new? Well a week ago me and my pocket-sized buddy went to watch the Axemen lose miserably to Bishops up at the newly renovated Raymond Field. It was her first time eve at a football game and she was impressed i think... she had never seen such a mob of people in her life, around a good 3000 strong were there i think. I was soooooooo glad to finally hear Blitzkreig Bop by the Ramones added to the playlist at the field, hopefully it will be finally joining inside during hockey as well. However some funny stuff like why did the oldtimers Acadia marching band start playing that NA NA NA Good riddence song when we were clearly losing? I dunno...we went to A&W in New Minas afterwards and used my coupons up and then came home to watch some HNIC and watch her Maple Laughs lose...hehehe...we are gonna do something today for sure, i have to see how her new braids in her hair turned out... this week we only hung out once and that was to go up to the shore up in Port George, where this other dude in a truck parked and stared at us, prompting us to go back to my place...next week the football AXEMEN are home to STFX on the 27th and i think me and my pocket-sized buddy shall be going. Oh and the other Thursday my ol pal Sarah and her hubby were down and we went on a Wolfville pub crawl...to the Vil and the AXE!!!! LOL! Sarah was disappointed cause it was not a karioke night at the Vil and therefore we couldn't see Chrissy sing Eye of the Tiger by Survivor for the 5,5000 time!!!! It was ladies night, but i only saw aboot 5-10 ladies and some 3000 dudes...weird.. we went to the Axe and they were shocked at how nice the ol Axe looked, another one of the Gobblygooker's spending sprees? LOL! I still like how the Axe plays a mixture of current stuff as well as some moldy oldies before they start playing all that dance crap around 11 ish. I did feel bad earlier in the week with us over a year later finally clearing out some of Dad's stuff and sending it off to charity, we didnt' wanna do it, it was hard on my Mom but t had to be done, however i felt like, or had this sad feeling that wwe were throwing him out, which we weren't, not at all and i am sure if Dad were here, he wuld tell us to go on and not to dwell on certain things, still felt quite a ting of sadness putting his stuff in clear bags and driving away with it. Life does go on, but that don't mean you have to like certain parts of it. Well NOVA is almost officially no more...how do i feel? Well sorry for those who are still stuck there, like i have stated before i think Dad was staring down at me and said Son...get out of there...somehow...so i fucked up, but i think it was a good i did. Imagine being stuck there, landlords wanting to evict you liek they have been doing to other teachers all over Japan and not being paid, the instructors were not paid again yesterday, i think the Pink Bunny is dead and as a business NOVA deserved not to be in business a long long time ago. NOVA branches are closing i guess with little or no notice and it is truly a feeling of unrest over there. And isnt it funny how no one there can find Nozoro Sahashi during all of this? I bet the SOB hauled ass out of there and is probably hiding with Osama somewhere i imagine. Im really glad i am here.....Not much happening on the Acadia strike front,although i imagine the parties are pretty wild right now. Money Money Money was what Ted Dibiase's theme music should be and i think it should be the theme music that plays as the official theme song for this strike, people get some greedy eh? The main issues are wages, benefits and staff complement. What is going to happen to those 4th and 5th yr students if this thing keeps going and going? What about those in the education program? This is the second strike for ol Gobblygooker and it does not bode well and what does the Gobblygooker do? Go on a planned trip to China while her school is on strike!?!?!?!?!!?!? WTF??!?!?! Who abandons their post when their school is going down the crapper? I agree with someone who stated that she is maybe trying to singlehandedly wreck one of the best Canadian universities in the country....hmmmmm maybe Bush sent her!!!! Or Nozoro Sahashi...or someone...get your house in order! A University has 2 strikes in 3 years, spends huge amounts of money fucking up atmosphere of the place i mean plasma TV's in the mealhall? Another residence? A new science building like come the fuck on! Oh not to mention the rise in the tuition, which forces a DROP in enrollment, Tower closes, Cutten closes, Tower re-opens (HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA!!!!) and you know what's next? Another fucking strike because everyone's not getting paid enough! Where is the money Gobblygooker? I think she is the Caribbean with Nozoro and Osama planning their next big coup!
Rant Robb Rant!
Anwho i did get the new Ramones It's ALive 1974-1996 DVD and it is pretty awesome! Finally i get to see the It's Alive concert from London's Rainbow Theatre on the 31st of December 1977, for those of you who do not know...It's Alive is one of my favorite albums of all time, it is the best live representation of the Ramones I've ever heard. It catches them at their absolute peak, in front of a spastic British audience who are loving every second of it. Anywho the DVD is great, weird to see the Ramones appearing on Sha Na Na in 1980 and finally for the first time i get to see the Ramones at the 1982-83 US Festival opening up New Wave Day...imagine the Ramones opening? Insulting! Imagine the other bands having to come on stage after the Ramones? Anyways it was something like a zillion degrees out and Joey playing the whole time with his leather jacket on! Awesomeness! Plus hearing "Hear Today, Gone Tomorrow" for probably one of the last times on stage till the band discarded doing ballads in concert was a highlight. Just funny to see them performing in front of all those California yuppies...
Anywho i gotta get me day going, shower, walk the dogs, go see my buddy, enjoy my day off cause i am working tomorrow to make up some hours...have a good one!

The Burning - theatrical trailer.

The trailer to the 1981 cult classic The Burning.

Here I Stand

"You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going"- Mike Litman

Hey gang! What is a happening? Another make-over on thy old Robbblogs eh? Looks more like it did three yrs ago eh? And guess what? What? Well the 6th of October marked the 3rd anniversary of Robbblogs online!!!!! Wow! Lots has happened, i was at Acadia at the time, left with another notch on my belt ala sociology, looked after my father for a year (miss you always Dad) left the store formerly known as Andrew's, went to Japan, came back from Japan, went back to the store formerly known as Andrew's, was hired by a research center and once again, left the store formerly known as Andrew's for possibly the last time in my life. Now i am eyeing a return to academia, now where shall it be? Behind door #1 is Acadia which is my alma mater and close to my heart, besides my family and my dogs, what is closer? However there is competition and an offer to be done my education faster at Fort Kent down in Maine, whom sent me more stuff in the mail the other day and seem to be genuinely interested in me, maybe they have a Canadian recruitment quota!!!! Decisions Robert Reid Hawley esquire is what you have to make! Well i have news that shocked me, but didnt shock me....NOVA....almost on the verge of collapse. Should i be happy? Well i made some good friends while i was there, there were some that treated me like crap, but what do you expect? Nova according to the reports was a victim of over-expansion. Now they have closed and or merged some 200 of their schools, dozens of the teaching staff were handed their eviction notices because NOVA failed to pay the rent on their apartments. It looks like a shitty mess, i feel bad for the teachers that may be unemployed, i did hear that money arrived, but was it just a band-aid? NOVA seems like a disaster waited to happen and yet i don't feel sorry for them cause as a business they do not give a rat's ass about their teachers, look at me! One stupid mistake and where was NOVA? Not their way? Gimmie a break, i am better than what they made me out to be.....alot better, maybe im poorer in the pocket not working there, but i am happier in my life. If that makes any sense at all.... So onto cooler topics, what about my pocket-sized buddy? Well well well. We gathered here last week to watch the traditional Montreal-Toronto HNIC match-up, of course her Maple Laughs won. However the Habs beat the Pens w/ Cindy Crosby last night and it was Corey Price's NHL debut!!! Whoooooooooooooo!!!! Habs have lots of FIREPOWER. Bobby Gainey has put all the essential elements in place for success. And Price! Awesome debut, Some what is it? The exact Day old Patty Roy debuted against the Pens in 85 and was victorious and now Price on the anniversary does the same exact thing! Now thats what makes the HABS the HABS ! EXCELLENCY!!! Anyone see the vid of Danny Bonaduce (Partridge) picking up that douchebag from Survivor and dropping him on his face? LOL!!!! I guess this loser said on that show which i have never watched cause well...reality shows kinda blow, he lied that his grandma died in order to gain sympathy from viewers and that did not sit well with Bonaduce: Texas Ranger and so he used the reality show awards show (GAG!) to almost powerbomb this chicken fucker threw the stage! Yay Danny! C'mon get happy!!!! Me and my little buddy went up to Port George the other night and took a walk out on the dock and onto the rocks, it was nice..a wee bit chilly, but other than that it was pretty good. We watched Silver Bullet on DVD the other night again and i made her jump some 5-6 times. Actually i picked up a cool old school DVD the other day, The Burning which was finally uncut and in widescreen...plus it had a retro Tom Savini feature showing him doing all of the special effects, back in the day before CGI crap. My 11 Keiths are still sitting at Bad News Blair's...Well my Axemen barely got by the Mounties last weekend up in Mount A, i spent my Sat off last week watching that match-up before HNIC...when the game went 29-29...i got cold, thinking we are gonna lose and i am never gonna her the end of it...ever!!! I have this Sat off and we are playing Bishops at Raymond Field at 2:00 and i play on being there and i am gonna ask my pocket sized pal to go with me. Me and her took a drive last night, drove around went to Berwick of all places, sat for coffee at Tim's where this guy stared and stared at her till she stared back and he got startled and looked away, we came back here and i put on my Japanese wrestling tapes i had brought back from Japan, she was roaring at the commentators how they would be chatting and all of a sudden... TIGERDRIVER!!!! at the top of their lungs. We even exchanged gifts cause last Saturday she bought me a Habs Stanley Cup banner and so i had to get her back and i bought her a Maple Laughs 2008 calander. Well my old pal Sarah is in town with her hubby and it is her last night here, i might go up to Wolfville to see them tonight, maybe go to the Vil, sing some karioke...take the camera...could be funny. Anywho folks, i have to getta shower, walk the dogs, answer some mail and get on with me day off! Have a good one!

Tuesday's Going Going...GONG!

"If a man does his best, what else is there?" - General George S. Patton

Hey gang! What is a happening? Well first some big news! As of tomorrow Robert Reid Hawley Esquire has been promoted/ moved!!!! To dayshift! Rocks to be me! And know what else that means? A raise!!!! And know what else that means? Well it has to be confirmed, but..........WEEKENDS OFF!!!! WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO would scream the NAture Boy! So how are things? Well my and my NEW friend (My pocket-sized buddy) actually came here to the house to meet Momma...ya know, the cranky lady who is happy one minute and disastisfied the next, ahhhh sometimes it is never enough know what i mean? Anyways me and my pal went for a drive the other night to Wolfville and we went for a walk on the mudflaps behind Tim Hortons and then went in where i had her in hysterics that Bruce Lee had brought a posse into Tims. She makes me feel good, what can i say? She pays attention to and express appreciation for me, she enjoys my company and there are no distractions which i really like...im smiling which is something i havent really done in a long time despite how i appear to others. This weekend i have Sat and Sunday off and we are going to watch the first HNIC of the season, and no that Analheim VS LA game from jolly ol England does not count. She will be cheering her Leafs and i will be cheering my Habs, wait....that is the week after...typical HNIC fuck up, why not have the rivalry to end all rivalries being played out on the first telecast of the season? Personally i would like to see the Habs Vs The Leafs for the next outdoor game. Ok ok Olympic Stadium is old and shitty and falling apart and so they could play it at the Skydome. Oh and i finally filled my CD booklet which has room for 80 CDs....lots and lots of tunes flowing out of Robbocop's car the other day lemmie tell ya! Put together some metal compilations including Iron Maiden's Maiden Japan in its entirety at long last! Some punk, surf music (including a Jan & Dean mix...yes i am cracking the hell up!!!), 80s rock, 90s rock, grunge, alternative and well...various...even a whole Southern Rock CD made up of Skynard and Blackfoot...has any other Canadians besides Robbo ever heard of frickin Blackfoot? Good stuff indeedy!!! Went over to Buddy Blair's on Sat night with a 12 pack of ol Keith's, but i only drank 1 as Blair had a 40 ouncer of Colt 45 ready and off to the ghetto we went! We watched a Dave Chappelle DVD which was hysterical, there wa a skit for PIMP of The Year! LOL! They would put pictures in front of Dave Chappelle and he would comment on them, when they put the Osbournes in front of him he commented, "She sang Papa Don't Preach, bitch should sing Daughter Don't Sing! HAHAHAAHAHAH!!! Then commented on Rosie o Donnell, "BOY GEORGE"!!!! Her underwear has DICKHOLES in them!?!?!?!?!?!!? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA ...it was so funny that Charlie Murphy as another pimp broke character and started roaring...plus i loved the Charlie Murphy skit with Prince...funny..Old Man Robb Hawley says check it out!!!! The night concluded with Blair passing out outside while taking a leak and then curling up into a little ball in his favorite chair...then passing out on the floor with a huge ol...WHOMP!!!! Acadia faculty going on strike again? Jeesh...what the hell does ol Gobblygooker gotta do to keep that place in check? This will be the second strike (see 2003-04) during her reign of terror...i mean power. Im starting to wonder if they should bring back ol Kevin Ogilthorpe!!!! The football AXEMEN got BOMBED by ol SMU on the weekend!!!! I hope to be off for the 13th and get to go see the Axemen take on Bishops at the newly renovated Raymond Field. Perhaps i shall take my NEW pal with me...yesterday i got me stuff from Fort Kent in the mail, all colleges/ universities always take the time out ya now to so make their campuses/ facilities look beautiful in the mail, imagine if they were honest just once and showed their campuses/ dorms/ facilities to look as they really do look? IMagine Acadia putting the Tower or Chipman/Eaton back in the day on some of their guides? Hell no! The best one i ever saw was for UCCB or UCB or whatever the lick a chick it is called...anyways they showed a science class or whatever class it was and right in the middle of the pic is a goofy kid with a SMU shirt on!!!! I was like this is your premium publication to entice kids to come to your college/ university and you have a brat with a RIVAL t-shirt on!!!!! Anywho i liked the Fort Kent stuff they sent, now i would not want to go back into residence, i was wayyyyyyyyyyy too old the first time back in the day, but there is something offered called, "The Lodge" which is a unique on-campus living environment where it is a suite-style accomodation. There is a triple that accomodates three students in individual bedrooms, no sharing rooms for Old Man Robb im afraid, they come with a kitchenette with a friedge, nuker (Microwave), a common living room with a sofa, bath, desks, chairs and dressers. I would love to go for a campus tour to see the place and i guess on the tours you can sit in on a class, meet profs, eat at meal hall and you can stay in a room in one of the residences. We shall see what happens, but one thing for sure is that Old Man Robert Reid Hawley is gonna do his damn best to get his hunky ol ass back in a university classroom for September of 2008!!! Anywho i gotta go have a shower, shave and get ready for my shift at 6:00, i am off early tonight so i can rest up for 9 ish tomorrow...have a good one!
