  • If you have seen the Guardians of the Galaxy then you knew to stay to the end to see the Howard the Duck final stinger, but before that there was a cute little clip and it was this:

    I laughed so hard when I saw this one especially when Dave Bautista‘s, Drax whips his head around and Groot goes stock still. That completely cracked me up. It is a good thing that Groot was not flying over Drax’s head because Drax’s reflexes are so fast that he would have caught Groot. If you haven’t seen the movie, then why not? It is a pretty perfect movie overall and so very fun to watch. If you are still not sold then you have to check out all of my #GuardiansOfTheGalaxyEvent posts that I did over the past month. read more!

  • Paw Patrol Rescue Run

    In the brand new app from Nickelodeon’s fun pre-school series, Paw Patrol, kids can help the pups save Adventure Bay. In the app kids are welcomed to The Lookout by Ryder where he briefs them on three emergencies that need their help. For each emergency kids can choose between two pups. The pup that they do not choose will help out during the adventure. The pup that they do choose will do the primary action in the adventure. The three emergency are at The Bay, The Train and Jake’s Mountain. While playing each of the games kids can earn special badges by tapping certain areas on the screen. Each game has pups running and jumping on and over obstacles to collect bones on their way to the rescue point. Once at the rescue point the primary pup switches out to the secondary pup to perform another task like sorting trash and recyclables or moving large and small logs. read more!

  • I took a photo of the sunset today and then played around with it in Photoshop. I went really crazy with it, too. When I was done it looked like a painting.
