Our Summer Vacation at Lake George

Apparently, I have a little bit of daredevil in me. Call it a midlife crisis perhaps, but I stepped out of my comfort zone not once, but twice this past weekend during our short vacation to Lake George, NY. Once again, we planned a getaway with my wife's cousins. This time around, we also brought along one of our nephews too. So for those keeping score at home, that's four adults and five teenage boys. Due to schedules, we could only visit Lake George for a few days. But we more than made up for the shortened stay with some serious action.

Eat It, Thanos. I Made Infinity Stone Cookies!

How do you follow up the baking of an Infinity Gauntlet cake? With super colorful sugary Infinity Stone Cookies, that's how! Thanks to my Level 9 Clearance at S.H.I.E.L.D., I was sent an early Blu-ray edition of Avengers: Infinity War. (Yes, this movie's just as good the third, fourth and fifth viewing!) Packed with super-cool extra featurettes, cut scenes, and the ever-popular gag reel, the Avengers: Infinity War hits Blu-ray on August 14. But what made this early delivery even more special was the secret recipe it came with. Even the Collector would be jealous of this unboxing! Yes, I was sent a brief on The Infinity Stones, an Infinity Gauntlet oven mitt, a ...

Billy Joel’s 100th Performance at Madison Square Garden

Seeing Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden is something that's always been on my bucket list. My wife Allison's too. So when our 20th wedding anniversary crept up on me last month, I figured it was time. I surprised Allie with tickets to Billy Joel at MSG with some pretty sweet seats. Now, I rarely go to concerts. It just isn't my thing. Same with Allie. But this was Billy Joel. The Piano Man. I figured it was worth it, and it was worth paying for some really good seats, otherwise, why bother. The way Billy Joel sets up his concerts, every seat in the Garden is a pretty good one. There's ...

Oh, Snap! Avengers Infinity War Hits Home on Digital July 31 and Blu-ray Aug 14

It seems like only yesterday I was picking my jaw up from the popcorn-filled floor at my local AMC Theater after seeing the credits roll for Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War. Easily the most epic superhero movie ever made, this was one massively entertaining 149-minute comic book battle. Some 10 years in the making, Avengers: Infinity War features nearly every hero from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (sorry, no Ant-Man or Hawkeye to be found!) joining forces in one massively heroic effort to save humanity's very existence from the supremely powerful baddie Thanos. Apparently, I'm not the only one who dug this movie since it shattered opening records and earned more than $2 billion worldwide ...
