I keep trying to fix the comment section on my blog as well its a joke how it never works right for me so I would like to say Sorry for the inconveniences.

May Monster Madness 2016


Ah yes, Memorial Day weekend the official kick-off to summer! And what better way to honor May Monster Madness by looking at a true monster the "Great White"! Thanks so Steven Spielberg's Jaw's the Shark has become a Classic Monster Icon. But not all the shark movies hold up right? I'm mean Sharknado is fun but that is about it. So join me will you as we look at a few sharks in the movies.


Did any other movie scare the pants off you like Jaws did? And we are always happy to sit back and watch it again and again. I just might have my young ones watch this with me this summer.

R.I.P. Joe Fleishaker

It was such a bummer to read about Joe Fleishaker passing today. You might not recognize his name but you surely can not forget that face! Fleishaker starred in MANY Troma classics including The Toxic Avenger franchise, Poultrygeist, Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D., Terror Firmer, and Tromeo and Juliet. Throughout his career, Joe could be seen working with and helping to develop talented individuals that have gone on to have some incredible careers.

Billed as "Troma's biggest action star" by company co-founder Lloyd Kaufman, died Monday at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, his brother, Haskel. He was 62. He was a heavy set man reaching 500 plus after his first heart attack he went into rehab to lose more than 150 pounds.

I meet Joe a few years back while he was working the Troma booth, a Nice guy who loved talking to the fans as much as we loved talking to him. He will be missed, Rest in Peace Joe, Rest in Peace!

Geocaching

Ever since we had the Little Free Library go up in our front yard a new world was opened up to us. One day we watched a father and daughter checking out our box but not really looking at the books instead they picked up a fake rock that somebody had but down.

They took the rock back to the car played with it for a few minutes and then but it back. Well, I had no clue what was going on so when they drove off and the coast was clear I went outside to investigate. I did not get it at first I opened the fake rock to see a list of names? Odd plain old odd. Then it hit me it is a Geocash!

So after looking into a little bit more yes we found out our little Library was on the Geocaching map! How cool is this? SO yesterday was my first day off since the girls have been out of school so they asked if we could try it out.

First, few we did were pretty easy of course the one in front of our house the other Little Library in town (yes we help with that one as well) and the Hegeler Carus Mansion. But then we had trouble finding one at a dentist office that has messaged me back saying it is still there to please try again which we will soon and the other is the train car in the video we have below. Those are hard!! We found one more before we headed home.

So why not Geocash it is pretty cool and takes you to place's you may have never explored before. I can see us doing this a few more times this summer and fall those die hards out there do it all year long!!

So have you ever Geocashed? Did you find it fun? Let us know in the comments below.

It's an almighty laugh!

Oh, God!
1977 | Color | 1 Hr 38 Min | Comedy | PG | Warner Brothers


Director: 
Carl Reiner

Writers: 
Larry Gelbart
Avery Corman

Stars: 
John Denver
George Burns
Teri Garr

Jerry Landers, a supermarket assistant manager, and a good yet non-religious person, suddenly finds a note in the mail one day that grants him an "interview" with God. Thinking it to be a hoax he tosses it away, but when it keeps reappearing he finally gives in. Skeptical at first, he ends up carrying His personal message - that the world can work with what God's given us.

I have been looking forward to jumping into this DVD when I bought it earlier this year. Many questions would need to be answered. Was this as good as I remember? Will it hold up after almost 40 years? Well, let us dive in and see shall we?

Aliens and Vampire's oh my!


Aliens/ Vampirella

Written By: Corinna Sara Bechko

Dynamite Entertainment and Diamond Book Distributors

Hardback Trade

154 pages

Two iconic horror franchises collide, as Vampirella - the fan-favorite supernatural heroine - faces the most nightmarish creatures ever to appear in cinema: the Xenomorphs from Alien! As the first human colony on Mars digs deeper into the crimson soil, they discover the catacombs of a hibernating civilization, tens of thousands of years old. The evidence suggests that they are Nosferatu, an ancient and sinister species that Vampirella is all too familiar with. Called to the Red Planet to investigate, the monster hunter and her human allies find a chamber with hundreds of ellipsoidal, leathery eggs... and after they hatch, the true horror begins. In space, no one can hear Vampirella scream!

So how do you start off a review about two horror icons that you are very fond of but yet together they are just... well...     

Spoilers Ahead 

Guitar Hero


So after picking up all those Disney Infinity figures Ella decided she wanted to try her luck at Guitar Hero. Now I know how hard this game is I'm not a fan of it, to be honest, but it sits in the corner collecting dust so way not. First tho we opened the game disk and it was the wrong one! It was for High School Musical that we sold the pad and game (so we thought) at a garage sale a few years ago. I kind of feel bad the little girl was probably upset when she got home. So back to the game, I knew this was going to be fun so I did a little bit of video for you to enjoy!
