What’s the Sitch’ – A Kim Possible Movie Review and An Interview with Dr. Drakken – Todd Stashwick

Complete with the silly puns and goofy villains this Kim Possible movie delivers a powerful jump kick to your nostalgic heart. Take a look at the trailer.

I had been excited to see the Kim Possible movie ever since I heard it was being made. I caught it this morning on Disney Now and I really enjoyed it! I enjoyed the original cartoon, too, but did not watch it religiously. I can’t tell you everything that happened in all the episodes, but is enough in my wheelhouse that I can keep up with the best of them.

Leading up to the movie I was offered the chance to have a phone interview with Todd Stashwick who plays Dr. Drakken, a character that was voiced by voice over great, John DiMaggio. In my interview I learned that Todd and John are friends, have worked together and when he got the role John was the first person who called him to give his blessing. Todd makes a fantastic Dr. Drakken, too. He’s got the perfect look for the character. Todd was also a very personable guy and we had a fun interview together, lots of laughs. For a guy who plays such intense characters he was totally chill about everything even what comes next for him. There may be a lot more coming as he not only acts but writes as well, he screenrote "Suicide Squad 2," the sequel to the 2016 hit feature film, and co-wrote a Star Wars video game. And I’ll admit it. I now follow him on Instagram and he’s a geek as well, spent Valentine’s Day leveling up his D & D Character! He’s a sorcerer.

Todd Stashwick flexes this comedic chops as Dr. Drakken. From the first moment you meet him in the movie he makes you laugh. Todd actually started in comedy which is something I did not know at all from my years of watching him in network dramas like Burn Notice, Leverage, Weeds, Heroes and so many, many more shows. In those dramas where Todd comes in as a bad guy about to do bad things. But, even in those roles there is always something more to him than just a one dimensional bad guy. He brings something more to every role that he has. In the Kim Possible movie you have to watch his expressions and mannerisms. How he delivers lines and his physical comedy as well. Years working in improvisational and sketch comedy groups like The Second City in Chicago and Burn Manhattan in New York.

Valentine’s Day Traditions and a Special Giveaway

Evas First Valentines Day

I’m working with our friends over at CATHOLIC CENTRAL to do a special Saint Valentine’s Day giveaway and share with you our Saint Valentine’s Day traditions. Opinions are our own.

In our house food is love. It just is. I was looking back over our Valentine’s day posts from the past 16 years of this blog and the majority of the posts came back with posts about food. We love to bake for each other and make special meals, That could mean Heart Shaped Cheeseburger Pockets to Brownies with special heart candies inside. Back when Eva was 3 years old she and Allison surprised me with Valentine’s Day cookies that were shaped like teddy bears. Eva did some wicked decorating on them, too.

Our Family - First Valentines Day

For this Valentine’s Day I picked up a special brownie mix, some Valentine’s Day M&Ms and some Reese’s peanut butter hearts. I made the brownies and cut them so that they looked like a heart shape. Okay so maybe I just sampled a corner and when I turned the plate it came up as a heart shape.

Made a Heart Shape

I’ve been asked by Catholic Central to write about some of the most romantic things that we have done in our family. But honestly, my wife’s favorite saying is “Ah, the romance…” We just aren’t that romantic. We don’t watch those over the top romantic movies or do much that is romantic. We do nice things for each other and much of what we say about love we say through food. Catholic Central has actually provided us with a downloadable PDF called “10 Tips To Rock St. Valentine’s At home”. In it there are some very nice activities and also some details about what Saint Valentine’s Day is all about. They have also provided me with a special kit to give away.
