The Four-Way Journal Post: Raphael

Raph was always my favorite of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and I'll tell ya why: Don was a huge nerdy douche with a glorified stick as a weapon (and while he may have owned all ass around town on the original NES game, he was probably one of the least effective fighters in the cartoon or movies); Mike was everyone's favorite, but the surfer-dude schtick got old pretty quick; and Leo always reminded me of one of those bossy asshole jock types who thought he was the shit when really it's a little known fact that he was the second best fighter. Raph was the best and only the true fans know it. That's why his weapons were the smallest: he didn't NEED the huge phallic weapon that the other Turtles needed; Raph just plain kicked ass, hands down. Plus, he had attitude, and even though he was the best, he never made it a big deal; ultimate team player if you ask me. Also, he always had the one-liner ready and zinged out there before any of the other Turtles could blink. Truly on the Peter Venkman level 100%.

As such, I'm devoting this first of four posts simply to the coolest topic of the night: What's Playing On My iTunes Right Now
