Our First Trip to Disney World – Part 2: Animal Kingdom

We survived our first day at Disney World: Hollywood Studios. After an exhausting day, we tried to get to bed as early as possible because it was a very early start on Day 2. Yes, our 2nd day was a wild one as we ventured into Animal Kingdom! Up before 6 am (If it weren't for my wife, I think the entire rest of our group would still be sleeping right now!), me, Allie and the boys were up, dressed finished breakfast and got on line for the bus well before 8 am. Thankfully her cousin Ivy and her family made it in time as well. The reason for such an ...

Marvel’s Inhumans is Literally Out of This World – And There’s a Teleporting Dog!

LOCKJAW, ANSON MOUNT (Black Bolt) When Arnim Zola showed up as a series of computer screens in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, I thought there was absolutely no way on Earth that Marvel could top themselves with crazy, obscure, bizarre characters making it to the mainstream. Now that I've seen previews of Inhumans, I stand corrected. Lockjaw, a giant, teleporting dog, is making his way to the small screen this month! Continuing its entertainment domination with major motion pictures, Netflix runaway hits like The Defenders and ABC TV's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel shows no signs of slowing down. Kicking off on September 29 on ABC, get ready for Marvel's Inhumans. These guys ...

Our First Trip to Disney World – Part 1: Disney Hollywood Studios

Our Disney World vacation was officially underway. Up bright and early to catch the bus from All Star Sports hotel, we made it to Disney Hollywood Studios before the park even opened. I was already seriously impressed. No, not at the crazy cool awesomeness that is Disney, but at the fact that my wife Allison had managed to get all eight of us up, dressed and at the park so early. Getting me, Jason and Ryan up is one thing, but she also got her cousins Ivy and Ira (and their two boys Matt and Ethan) into the solid vacation routine. We were all one tired, well-oiled machine! While I had been ...

Netflix’s Marvel Shows Aren’t Just for Superhero Fans (or How to Get Your Friends to Binge Watch The Defenders)

My name is Andrew and I am a comic book geek. That means that even if Marvel puts out the craziest movies and TV shows based on obscure characters like Ant-Man or Iron Fist, I'm first in line. And when Netflix's amazing set of characters team up in a new series called The Defenders, I'm screaming from the rooftops. Yeah, The Defenders. Sounds like a cheap version of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, a.k.a. The Avengers. To be honest, they kind of are. I've never been a diehard Defenders fan but always dug them when they showed up in other comics. The Avengers were the A-List team, headquartered in NYC and fighting Earth-shattering foes. The ...

Star Wars Night at Yankee Stadium Was a Total Geek Experience

When my wife asked me if I wanted to attend Star Wars Night at Yankee Stadium this past weekend, I think I had purchased tickets before she even checked our calendar. But thank The Force, we were free. Any Yankee game is fun for me to attend. What with the hot dogs. The Beer. The merchandise. The scoreboard. Oh yeah, and the game. But a Star Wars Night at a Yankee game? Awww, yeah! We got to Yankee Stadium at 5 pm for a 7:05 game. The last few trips, we didn't get a chance to visit Monument Park because it closed by the time we got there. Plus, since it was Star ...
