Practice Balisong Knife from www.Lightake.com review by Wmpyr
A representative from www.Lightake.com said she wanted to send me this knife to review for you guys. I said sure, they kept their word and it arrived sooner than I expected, keep in mind it’s coming all the way from China.
Their website www.Lightake.com has a ton of fun stuff that I can literally browse for hours and hours. The price of this knife is super good, and so is their shipping cost. Buy from them, don’t take a risk from some unknown.
The knife itself came too stiff to flip, however I simply used some machine oil to lube it up and as you can see in my videos it flips without a problem. You just need to be a little patient because these kinds of things can happen. I’ve had the knife for about a week now, and I haven’t pampered it, in fact I’ve been kind of rough with it to test it out for you guys, I even dropped it hard on concrete once. It’s holding up really well, and providing a smooth and safe flipping experience.
In martial arts injury is the enemy because it takes time away from training and this knife is safe and legal. However do not walk around flipping this thing in public. As an Eskrima martial arts teacher I cannot stress the importance of having a training knife like this. Highly recommended!
Rating: A+ (must have)

Ice Cream Man (1995) film review by Wmpyr
Boy do I miss the days when I use to walk into a Block Buster video store on the weekends and rent movies like The Dentist. If you like The Dentist, then this one is right along the same lines, except this is a studded all star cast! Olivia Hussey was great in it. I feel like the cast could not save the film though, it's not a bad movie, but it's not something I would seek out to own, and I actually like and have a ton of B-horror films. I did enjoy watching it, but there are plenty of other films that I find way more enjoyable. You can find Ice Cream Man and Jack Frost 2 on a double feature dvd going for under $10 free shipping on ebay, I like Jack Frost 2 way better. You might even be able to find a triple pack with the two films plus Killer Tongue. I haven't seen Killer Tongue yet, but hope to change that soon!

Scream Blacula Scream film review by Wmpyr
From my understanding this is the sequel, but watching this film without seeing the first one didn't leave me confused or anything. It was nice to see Pam Grier in this. Despite the title, it's not intended to be funny, it's quite serious but there are some funny dialogs. The budget seems pretty low, but overall it works out without feeling too cheap. Blacula is a stand out and he reminds me of a black Christopher Lee, I can see why he got the role, he does a good job. I like how they incorporated pimps, voodoo, and African culture into the film. Overall though, while I did enjoy the movie, it wasn't a stand out for me, I give it a 4 or 5 out of 5 stars.
Bas Rutten O2 Trainer review by Wmpyr
I was born with asthma and I've suffered from it all my life. I've come to live with it, because I was not going to let it stop me from exercising and doing martial arts. However after a hard workout I would always get an asthma attack, that was basically 5 days a week! Every night I would start wheezing after my exercise and I would have to tough it out, and wait hours until I could go to bed.
After I started using the Bas Rutten O2 Trainer, I stopped having asthma after my workouts! I've been asthma free, and it feels like a miracle, after 40 years, finally, I know what it's like to feel normal!
The first day when the O2 Trainer arrived in the mail, I tried it that night and I immediately felt the effects! I was breathing deeper, now all I had to do was put in the work, and do my part. To be honest it has made my workouts more challenging and fun, fun because I could feel the change and the results are so worth it!
I like that you can use the O2 Trainer while you exercise, but I also like how you can just sit still and it will work on your breathing too! I make sure to do both everyday.
Even if you don't have asthma, even if you don't do any sports, I highly recommend it, because we ALL should value health which means you need to exercise. And why not take your exercises to a higher level, life gets more fun that way!
