A Spider-Ham Cake Capped off a Spectacular 47th Birthday

Any day that kicks off with your own fully functional Infinity Gauntlet and ends with a spectacular Spider-Ham cake is one for the record books. Yes, today was my birthday. My 47th to be exact. And as always, my family made it extra special. The day started with a pile of presents. (After a cup of coffee first, of course.) I always create ridiculous wish lists every year that cover the gamut of geekdom from Star Wars Lego Death Star sets to Captain America hand warmers. Sometimes my wife goes with things on my list, other times she goes "off menu" and just nails it. That's exactly what she did this time. As a ...

The MPAA Needs to Fine People Who Spoil Avengers: EndGame

Marvel's Avengers: Endgame begins this week. Thursday night in fact. And unless you've been living under a rock or just make it a policy to avoid watching really fun, amazing movies, then you know that this follow up to Avengers: Infinity War is going to be the biggest movie of all time.

The Star Wars Episode IX Trailer Brings My Childhood Full Circle

Star Wars Celebration is going on right now in Chicago and The Force is stronger than ever. That's because Disney has dropped the name of the final "original" trilogy film... Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker. They even announced a release date of December 20. Oh, and they also surprised the world with a little teaser trailer. Gah! Cover your keyboard to protect it from the drool and take a gander! Did you get goose pimples like I did? Seriously. Story wise, not much is explained. But snippets of awesomeness prevail, which no doubt will lead to eight long months of theories and speculation. First, we start out with Rey on ...

Sharing Family Photos with My Parents Just Got Simple Thanks to ibi

This post is sponsored by the makers of ibi. I still remember fondly sitting in the living room with my family as my dad pulled out the slide projector and adjusted the screen. Then he'd go through the latest reel of slides from our summer vacation out in Cape Cod. Usually this'd happen when either my cousins were over or family friends were visiting. I guess you could say that was the precursor to someone's Facebook wall these days. Don't get me wrong. I absolutely love technology! I can be at my son's baseball game and quickly text a photo of Ryan up at bat to my parents and sister. Or I ...
