This is an Article Submitted to us by our Good Friend and Special Correspondant as well as Singer/Model. Her name is Jillian Nicole and you should hear what she has to say about MUD!
I Might Just Be MUDCRAZY!
If I could explain the thing I love to do in three words they would be family, fitness and….MUD! A hobby that I have luckily fallen into late 2012 has brought me the most joyous experiences of my twenty-six years on this planet.
As a child, I was not the athletic type. I did the normal things that kids do, like ride their bike and rollerblade but nothing extreme. I wasn’t in sports throughout grade school or even much after that. That was until August 2012. I decided to go to a team building event. The event was open to anyone that wanted to go and the company that I was working for at the time would pay for registration. The name of the event was called The Highlanger III. Yes, it sounds exactly how the experience was. There were six of us that went to this event and only one of us got hooked. That one happened to be me.
The Highlander is a mudrun and obstacle course race. When I say mudrun, I do mean you run (Or walk, jog or whatever you feel comfortable doing), in mud. This specific race was a 5k mudrun. Considering that it was my first time, one of my employees and I decided to walk the entire thing. We walked through trails, mud and water. One thing that mudruns and obstacle course races do is test your strength and abilities. This was a perfect type of athletic event for me because there are “breaks” (Obstacles) within the course so I do not have to run the entire time. In this specific race there were 25 obstacles and harsh terrain. With monkey bars, walls of tires roped together to climb over and a jump that sends you plunging into deep water the entire race was an amazing experience!
It wasn’t too long after The Highlander that I decided this is what I want to do. This is what is going to keep me from sitting on the couch. This is something that I need to learn more about. So I started to research and low and behold, I found that there are races going on every month! I stumbled upon a mudrun group called MUDRUNFUN. There were about eleven people in this group and they had invited me to go to a mudrun called Savage Race. I went to the race by myself and met up with what is now my family. Although I had hardly any athletic bones in my frame, I finished and received a finisher’s medal. That is what mattered. That medal proved to me that I am able to do more than I ever thought I could!
Since Highlander, I have completed over 55 mudrun/obstacle course races in Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, and South Carolina. I am hoping this year, after my broken toe heals, to continue my venture and become faster and stronger. I usually do these events for fun, but I believe it is time to start pushing myself!
If I could end this with a brief summary of what it would be an ending full of good times and good people. It is what keeps the mudrun community so brilliantly fantastic! We are a unique community and we continue to grow. If you have an opportunity to go to a mudrun, even just to watch the event, take it!

Hello and Welcome Back,
We have been a little behind in updating the Blog and I wish to Apologize to everyone. Between Being stressed out and sick things got backed up. So I want to take this moment to Update everyone about whats been going on and what is coming in the next Few Weeks. Mind you some isn’t a rant its just observations and some is flat out Anger, while some is curious updates.
Now over the past 3 weeks we had to revert to a podcast format and have re-aired a few past episodes due to illness and neighbors in my apartment building and my loud voice after 10pm.
But on a Lighter Note we Are in talks to Book Both Debbie Rochon and Alexia Anastasio to Come back on the show not Live but A Very Long Interview which will be uploaded as Parts 1-9 Yes I said 9 because these will be LONG interviews broken down into 20-25 min podcasts which will be uploaded with Live Commentary thrown in or live show’s in between.
In other Booking News we are Looking into Booking Some Experts in various Fields for some interviews on the show ranging from Paranormal, UFO, CryptoZoology,Myths, Greek Mythology,Hollow Earth, and Various other Film people that you wouldn’t normally expect us to approach.
Now This Coming Wed Dec 18, 2013 will be our Annual Christmas Show which we have been doing for years and always try to spice things up a bit. But this one is different as we are actually following a set schedule almost Like TV Does and we will be making this our Winter Finale and then return in Jan/February for 13 more episodes Before we Take a Season Finale. Of Course this is Subject to change without notice.
Now we wouldn’t be Nuts if we didn’t do something exciting and we are planning something.
We also want to make sure we get the word out to as many people as possible about the show. Currently all our big listeners vanished, and we need to get the word out on youtube,twitter,flickr,tumblr and every social media known to man. So therefore we ask all our followers and listeners to post about our show and to spread the word around…
You guys make the show so lets spread it around, just like that annoying zombie virus..
So we would like to hear from our listeners and readers and take your idea’s and suggestions and see what you would like us to cover at this Years NYCC. As always we cover the fans of Cosplay and get unique interview from the fans and we bring you photo’s Usually Live from the Convention Floor and Short Little Broadcasts Live.
This year we want to follow that tradition but Speak more to the fans, We try to cover every panel but review it and not give too much away. Also following tradition we try to bring you very short quotes from the guests as allowed by their publicists without taking any time away from their appearance.
Now is your time to speak, Tell us some things you want to hear and see at this years NYCC and we will do our very best to bring it to you *LIVE* or prerecorded. We have been successfully doing this for the past 5 yrs and want to bring you the listeners and fans more of what you want…
So after meeting with the Corporate Investor’s this week, Which I don’t know why I still do since they refuse to give me more money for the show, They Agreed to my demands. So Coming October 1, 2013 will be the Official Launch of Our New Show and Website and Broadcast Date of Our First Live Show with a Surprising Celebrity Guest.
Now as I explained to The Board we were not planning a name change or anything but when we went to purchase our domain which was available for months, it suddenly was sold and put up for auction for $2500 after we announced our return. I thought it was a fluke and had to convince the board to change the name, they agreed so I announced it and made preparations for the return, 2 days later that new name was again bought and put up for auction. Which Led me to believe someone on my friends list has actually tried to stop me from broadcasting which means I must be doing something right if someone is so threatened by my shows that they are actively trying to stop me from buying domains and websites and such. This is the Final time we will ever change our name as per agreement with Board of Directors we will have a Soft Launch Prior to Oct 1st with some trailers and teaser for the upcoming show including the Show Name Soon. Then After October 1st we will Have a Hard Core Launch Party Date and Time to be announced worldwide with a Celebrity Guest your not expecting…
The New Show will again be a round table discussion of Today’s Entertainment and Odd Topics Hosted by myself CrazyNick and Our Own Monster Man! We are seeking another cohost possibly female and few interns to help out but in case your Saddened we have not Forgotten Fifth Ring Radio’s Own FeralWolf our great friend and Golden CoHost has a reserved seat should time allow him or his new son untie him, to return he is forever welcome.
We Will be Running By Season with a Premiere and Season Finale then taking Time Off and prepare for the next season. During the course of the Season you will be able to Read Blog Updates from Friends of the Show Like Joe Flynn of the Joe Flynn Show, Ms Misery from Last Doorway Productions, Nikki Kreux from Triwar, among others…
The New Shows will be live and not recorded or available for downloading so anything can happen.
Spread the word and Keep an eye on our Facebook as it will change to a public page soon and be worldwide…
You never know what might happen, be it odd topics, Blog reports from our followers or News of the Twisted…
PLEASE NOT THIS IS MY OPINION AND THERE ARE SPOILERS :
Tonight I went to the Premiere of Man of Steel before it opens Friday June 14th in Theater’s. Now I was a bit unsure how it was going to play out since they were basically re-creating Superman 2 all over again. Now don’t tell me to stop, that’s what this film essentially was but let me break it down for you how this 2 hr 24 minute movies played out. Again this is my opinion and your’s may differ. Altho The only true opinion that matter’s is Warner Brothers because if this movie doesnt make enough money opening weekend WB might trash it and decide to re-reboot it all over again.
**SPOILERS FROM HERE ON OUT**
The Opening Scene’s which was a little back story about Krypton and I felt it was a bit slow and dragging to the point of Come on already. Fast Forward to an adult Clark Kent who is taking odd jobs around the world trying to hide but saving people when it was necessary which forced him to move on. Now and Then we get some flashbacks to events in his childhood where his earth father Pa Kent tells him he can choose to be good or evil but he must hide it until the world is ready. Fast Forward back to A Icy Landscape where we Clark Finds not only a ship and discover’s his origins but also meets Lois Lane who want’s the world to know.
Meanwhile as Clark Learn’s his origin’s we come to find out very late in movie that this alerted Zod to where he was and Zod comes to Earth revealing Kal-El is on Earth Posing as Human and he is to surrender or earth will suffer.
Herein we see another struggle as Clark decides to trust Zod and turns himself into the US Military and then in turn to Zod. He finds out Zod’s true agenda and after some battling a Colonel in Military Declare’s Kal-El is Not the enemy.
The battle then plays out over the dna of kryptonites that zod wants to create and populate earth with and in a fashion replays Superman 2 with zod and his 2 henchman fighting Kal-el.
Ending in a spectacular fashion when you See Superman who is only named 1x in the film, do something he never wanted to do to save humanity and that was killing Zod, the last of his people.
In the End him and Lois Kiss, Another Commander tries to follow Superman who tells him, I’m not your enemy don’t look for me but I am here to help. He then get’s a Job at the Daily Planet as Clark Kent Mild Mannered reporter, with Lois Lane who pretends not to know who he is…
The Beginning was too dragged out and I found myself with those around me waiting to see him in the suit. Some of the fight Scene’s were over the top and dragged out and I was not a fan of how Zod quickly learned to control his abilities on earth. I Did enjoy watching Kal-el learn to fly and find out about himself and his frequent rescues of people and even a slightly dark side where he got a little revenge here and There… It ended with No Cliffhanger, No Hint’s at a Sequel and Nothing after the credits. I am on the Fence about this but would like to hear more people’s Comment’s.
If you felt I missed something or want to expand on something please list it in comments..
Most of you know me or know of Me and know how we are involved as much as possible in the convention circuit by either going, reporting on or getting reviews from people. So When Two Good friends Scott & Pixie Spoke about there experience at AnimeNext this past weekend – I was OUTRAGED.
Everyone has heard about how there’s alot of creep’s taken photo’s of cosplayer’s for uses other than press related or personal use. I am of course talking about 2 Image Solutions who felt it was fine to take pictures of cosplayer’s and then put them on Body Pillows and Sell them making money off the cosplayers image. Now first off I have a problem with the Creepy Factor of this, The People who will be doing god know’s what to some of those pillow’s and the fact they are making money from these item’s and not Paying anything to the people whose image they are using.
I believe in USA that is illegal. There was nothing signed by the cosplayer and even tho the photographer has some rights having taken the photo but the fact he is making money off it is wrong.
We value Cosplayer’s and like to say how sorry we are that this has happened. Lately there has been more and more issue’s arising at convention’s with cosplayer’s being mistreated. This is a new breed of photographer and we are saddened by what is happening…below is link to the article:
We have decided to Review the Much Anticipated Oz The Great and Powerful and I have to admit to being very surprised. But On to Our Review, We remind you these are our opinions only.
**POSSIBLE SPOILERS BELOW***
This is a prequel to The Wizard of Oz and I Must admit the trailer’s are a tad bit misleading. This starts out with Oscar “OZ” as a circus Magician who is a con-man and slight illusionist, who escapes His Kansas Circus to avoid a angry father who just found out his daughter was sleeping with Oz. While flying through the tornado he finds God and Remarkably arrives in the Beautiful Oz. There isn’t any reasoning why the beginning is in black and white and Oz is color but It’s Minor.
His first contact is Theodorra the Witch and First in new land of Women who he wants to use and make broken hearted. She believe’s in him and falls in love with him as they make their way to Emerald city via yellow brick road after escaping the vicious flying monkey’s that the wicked witch sent to kill Oz. In Emerald City he meets Theodorra’s Sister Evandorra another witch with a secret who is the advisor to the Emerald City, another of Oz’s Conquests altho it isn’t shown until later.
We fast Forward and Oz heads off to steal wand of wicked witch to stop her along the way gathering 2 other companions, a flying monkey bellboy, and China a real china doll who I feel steals the show. Also there is a few tidbits that are so minor if your not paying attention you miss the reference to the scarecrow and cowardly lion, or even why the cowardly lion became a coward. We find out Evandorra is actually the Wicked witch, Glinda is the good witch and Theodorra thru her sisters trickery becomes a truly wicked witch turning from beauty to beast with a hunger for vengence.
In the End Oz with Much Illusion and trickery forces the witches to leave Oz Forever and offer’s Theodorra a chance to return if she ever finds goodness again, telling her the reason this happened was not her fault but his in which she replies “NEVER”. Oz is Free and We See Oscar Dead and the Wizard Born and the Chair and Illusions set as he warns When those 2 witches return, and they Will everyone MUST believe in Oz.
All in all a very good movie, very little CGI which is welcome in this day and Age and Did you catch the spot in the beginning where you hear about Dorothy’s Mom and Dad getting Married.
We rate this Movie a B As we had a few issues with the slowness of the initial beginning, Credits Running at beginning of Film, and the fact this film even tho it is a prequel to Wizard of Oz also sets a stage for if they should ever decide to do a after movie like a finale to wizard of Oz which has been done over the years with a failed animated Return to Oz and most recently which we enjoyed Syfy’s TinMan which was a return to Oz almost 100 yrs later.
