Nerf Wars (VIDEO)

Posted by on March 28th, 2020, under VIDEOTAPE

My son and his friend challenged me to a Nerf War and I, a Nerf pro, absolutely wrecked the noobs. They’re getting better though. Headshots are a great motivator. Sooooo many headshots. This video is also solid proof that battles are the best with Star Wars blaster sound effects added. Stay safe and sane, folks!

Posted by on January 20th, 2019, under VIDEOTAPE

He was so nervous about EPII he actually rejected watching for a few months. Because of spoilers, he knows the basic story of the Prequels and was very anxious about seeing Anakin fall to the Dark Side. After we saw The Phantom Menace, I didn’t understand his lack of excitement to watch the next movie. […]

May the Make-Believe Be With You, Always

Posted by on January 3rd, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

What do a broomstick, a flashlight and a cardboard wrapping paper tube have in common? Some of you will guess immediately: a lightsaber. In the case of the cardboard tube, it’s a very short-lived lightsaber, but in the right hands, it’s a magnificent Jedi weapon while it lasts. Whether it’s vwoomping and shzzzorping like a […]

All our play as kids, every time we imagined something fantastic happening to us — those moments were our minds calling out for something magic in our everyday. Star Wars is […]

​First Mars, Then a Galaxy Far Far Away

Posted by on September 29th, 2016, under "MY KID JUST SAID...", SNAPSHOTS

​I’d been seeing little bits and pieces about Elon Musk’s announcement at the International Astronautical Congress (see article/video) to put plans into hyperdrive for Mars manned missions and even colonization. With the goal of getting us blasted off in less than a decade, he stated, “I really have no other purpose than to make [human] […]
