  • Trolhunters Part 2

    I recently watched Part 2 of Trollhunters, or rather Season 2 on Netflix. It came out on Friday with 13 new episodes and the story of Jim Lake Jr., Clare and Tobias continues to grow. At the end of the first season Jim travels to the Darklands to find Clare’s brother, Enrique. He did this by himself, shutting himself away from his friends. While he has been gone they have been taking on Trollhunter duties and also covering for Jim. They are trying to keep up appearances until Jim returns.

    The Darklands are quite dangerous enough but to make things worse an exiled Troll named Gunmar resides there. His only goal is to return to Arcadia and conquer the Earth with his troll henchmen. You can get an idea of what is coming with Season two in the Trailer here.

  • Dance Productions Winter Show
    Photo-A-Day #4630

    Today was Eva’s annual Winter Dance recital and fundraiser at one of the local school. Each of the classes do a little routine to Christmas music and it is a lot of fun. It is an hour long and afterwards they do a raffle. I was there for the show and then headed home to get some sleep. This has been a poor sleeping weekend. Luckily it is the last weekend of work before a weekend off. I’m looking forward to not being at work for a little bit.

    Yesterday I picked up new phones for Allison and I. She has upgraded to the iPhone 8 Plus and I did the Google Pixel 2 XL. They are great new phones. However, I need to spend more time with mine because I thought that I took a video of Eva’s dance but I only turned on the video camera. I totally messed up the video. However, the camera will take motion pictures which means that it takes a picture and also takes a short video before and after so it is only a second or so. I haven’t figured out how to share it correctly yet.

  • The Last Jedi Viewing

    Today I met Brian with Built from Bricks over at the movie theater. He bought tickets on the day that they came out. I was lucky that he bought me one, too. He got the first two tickets for the theater and we were the only people in the theater for weeks leading up to the movie. Then this morning he said that it was sold out. That is a good thing since I wanted to see it with a crowd and feel the energy of the moviegoers. I know that I can never, ever recreate the incredible excitement of seeing Thor Ragnarok with the cast and creators. That was incredible. But I wanted to get an excited audience and feel that energy.

    While the movie was really good, I enjoyed it a lot. I look forward to seeing it again with Eva. Eva and I talked about the movie all the way to Dance rehearsal tonight. I don’t want to give anything away about the movie but I will give you some of my thoughts after you check out this new featurette.

  • With Spider-Man
    Photo-A-Day #4628

    On my way over to film Built from Bricks with Brian I stopped by Wild time Comics to see if I had any thing in my subscription. It was uncharacteristically empty. But, on the way out I noticed that Spider-Man was all decked out for Christmas so I stopped to take a selfie with him.

    For tonight’s show we did a livestream all about Star Wars. We started building the Heavy Walker while we talked about the movie which we are seeing tomorrow. We had a great episode and the new look of the show is working great. We are now using 3 cameras and will probably set up an overhead camera again for better shots of us building. Then also some transitions between scenes. There is a lot to work on but it will get even better. Check it out below.

  • Muddy Buddies
    Photo-A-Day #4627

    We may just have a new Christmas snack food tradition thanks to Chex Cereal and General Mills. They sent us everything needed to make Muddy Buddies. i have never tried these before but… Oh Man! They are fantastic! Allison was out at Knitting tonight and so Andrew, Eva and I made the Muddy Buddies from the kit that we were sent. It is very easy to make but it can be messy. Or at least it takes a few bows and pans and whatnot to make them. The Muddy Buddies recipe is really simple and can be found on the Chex Website. We made the Chocolate Peanut Butter kind of Muddy Buddies. Andrew shook up the bag on the left and Eva the one on the right. I think that one of the bags either had more in it or less powdered sugar. I am not sure. I may have to ake another couple of batches to bring to work this weekend.

    The items that were sent to me were really nice including a special Spoon! Check it out below. read more!
