The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Giveaway (Ends 4/16)


Eggs! Eggs it is!!!! If those phrases don’t send shivers up your spine, then you weren’t obsessed with Bass and Rankin’s animated The Hobbit movie from 1977. I must have watched that cartoon a million zillion times as a kid. Such a great story, great animation and clearly an emotional one as I’m still totally freaked out […]

The 5 Best Time Travel Tales on Netflix


I’ve shared my thoughts on Daylight Savings Time with you guys recently. Oddly enough, I flew out to England at the beginning of March, right during DST. Luckily for me, England hadn’t changed its clocks yet, which meant there was only a 4-hour difference back home. This weekend, the UK pushes its clocks an hour […]

My Interview with Big Hero 6’s Baymax


Recently, I got to visit L.A. for an amazing blogging trip. I interviewed the directors behind Big Hero 6, the voices behind Hiro and Tadashi, and even Scott Adsit (the voice of Baymax). It was a blast talking to them all and getting some serious behind-the-scenes goodies! But there’s one interview I didn’t share with […]

Where Did That Lost Hour From Daylight Saving Time Go?

Fozzie Bear #MuppetsMostWantedEvent

Sleep. It’s one of the most precious commodities in the world. I’ll admit it, I love to sleep. In my high school and college days, I don’t think I ever saw daylight before 11:30 am on the weekends. Yet there are two natural predators of the precious sleep cycle: children and Daylight Saving Time. And […]
