Best. Pizza Box. Ever.

This has to be the best pizza box ever.

Spider-Man Homecoming Pizza Hut Box

Pizza Hut is currently promoting the new Spider-Man movie, so the boxes have a picture of Spidey on the top.

It is the best box that I've ever came across. Without a doubt.

Creed II Notes

Check this out..

Sylvester Stallone Notes About Creed 2

This is something Sylvester Stallone posted on Instagram the other day.

It's a pad filled with notes for the sequel to Creed. The actor/director wrote that it consists of 439 handwritten pages that would translate into around about 120 typed pages.

He appears to be working on Creed II, but that's not all.

Look at one of the hashtags on the image (if you can't see it properly, click on the image). Notice the '#drago'?

I guess he's hinting that Dolph Lundgren could be reprising his Rocky IV role as Ivan Drago in this movie. It would work considering Drago is the boxer that killed the Apollo Creed in Rocky IV. The current franchise - Creed - is based on Apollo's son, Adonis, pursuing a career in boxing.

Would be interesting to see if the script has Ivan Drago's son as the main villain.

I'm getting ahead of myself, though. The movie is evidently in the early planning stages and won't be with us for years.

A-Team Back On In The UK

I noticed that Spike TV over here in the UK has started to air episode of The A-Team.

The show brings back some fond memories. I have watched a couple of them, but they're on when I'm sorting dinner out and usually forget about to watch.

I did manage to see the first-ever episode. It was interesting to see that a different actor played Dirk Benedict's role of 'Faceman'. It was something that I never knew until the other day.

I'm hoping to find myself watching the episode that Hulk Hogan appeared in. Unless I watched that particular episode when I was a child and have forgotten about it, I have never seen it.

I loved this programme. Had all the toys, a t-shirt among other things. I also remember buying a cereal that I had no intention of eating (Shredded Wheat?) only to get the mini comic that was inside.

Up To Date

I'm finally back up to date with New Japan's G1 Climax.

I missed a few days when I was unable to use the Internet properly. so spent Friday to yesterday catching up with the three shows I missed in my absence.

Today's show is on as I type this. I'm watching it live, so - yeah - absolutely back up to date!

Appetite For Destruction At 30

My favourite rock album turned thirty years old yesterday. I wish I had known before publishing yesterday's post, because I would have dedicated the post to it.

The album is Guns 'N Roses' Appetite For Destruction.

I first must have came across it in 1988. This would have been the second summer I spent with my relatives on an American air force base in Germany. I would sleep on the floor of my cousin's bedroom and he would play the album before bed.

It took me a few nights, but - by the end of the holiday - I loved having it play as I lay there in that room.

Even as I type this now, I wish I could relive those visits. I loved the two summers I spent over there. Whenever I listen to the album, memories of the final visit to Germany flood back.

I didn't immediately buy the cassette when I returned home. I remember buying it with my Christmas money - or gift vouchers -  in late '88 or the New Year of '89. I still have the cassette and I even upgraded to a CD back when I had my first CD player.

It's just gone midnight as I'm writing this. As soon as I finish, I'm going to listen to the album as I try and get myself to sleep.

Back

I'm finally back online properly.

A new modem was sent to me today and - fingers crossed - I'm all back to normal.

I don't know how much I spent on mobile Internet the past two days. It was more than I liked, that's for sure.

It has just gone 6pm BST as I type this and now I have one thing on the top of my 'To Do' list and this is to catch the two nights (or mornings!) of the G1 Clumax.

Need to be up to date by tomorrow.

Hotspot

My modem broke on Tuesday night.

I'm currently on the iPhone's WIFI personal hotspot typing this post up because I won't be able to come online properly until my ISP has sent out a new modem/router.

Typically, it chose one of the worst weeks of the year to go down. In fact, it picked a day when there was a lot of wrestling news what with Shane McMahon being a passenger on a helicopter that had to make a crash landing yesterday and also the talk that Brock Lesnar is eyeing a return to the UFC.

I had better get off this hotspot. Back tomorrow... I hope.
