Luke’s YouTube Channel, Proud Geek Dad. #geekdad, #gravityfalls, #stopmotin

My son and best buddy’s interest in stop motion video has been going on for a few years. He has been creating them for a while and he is getting better and better. He also has a love for Gravity Falls. All the stuff he shows on his new You Tube Channel was made by him without any help. He now has a 6 foot table and a decent size area in our Man Cave that is set up just for him to do his videos on. I am very…

Just Joe-In Jellystone Park style, #justjoe-in, #GiJoe, #JellystonePark

My family and I took a short vacation over Memorial Day Weekend and spent two beautiful nights in Jellystone Park, in North Java, NY. My good friend Joe came along for the weekend but being as busy as I was, grilling and relaxing, I didn’t have time to go out with Joe anywhere; We were hoping to go exploring for awhile. Luckily my son and daughter stepped in and decided to take Joe out for some fun and show him around a little bit. I believe my 9yr old son…

Weekly Watch: BUDK.com, the place for swords, knives, and survival #budk, #hobbitswords, #survivalgear

It’s been a couple of weeks since we have done a Weekly Watch so we figured we owed a couple of good posts! I’ve always been a fan of swords and knives, especially ones from fantasy movies. I have shopped BudK.com a number of times and have always been very satisfied with their service and delivery, and their prices can’t be beat! Anyone that enjoys survival, fantasy movies, collecting knives, or just likes cool home decor will enjoy Bud K’s offerings. The Sword of Thorin Oakenshield, Orcrist: http://www.budk.com/product/Orcrist-Sword-of-Thorin-Oakenshield-from-The-Hobbit/174673.uts   The…

Hills is Where the Toys Are! #forgottenfriday, #hills, #holidaymemories

For anyone who grew up through the 60s, 70s, and 80s in the lower North Eastern part of the US should have fond memories of the Hills Department Store. They had the best Christmas commercials! Every year at this time I always remember them and going to Hills and seeing their Christmas and toy displays. Oh what joyful times that was. I had a falling out of sorts with my family and no longer speak with them but one memory I still keep dear is every year my Mother would…

Sunday Funday – Fantasy Football #GeekGirl #FantasyFootball

For my first article for watchtower, I thought how fitting to talk about my favorite Sunday sport, Football! But more on the side of being a total football geek, fantasy football is my new found favorite game to be playing! I’ve been a football fan ever since I was old enough to talk and shout, “Broncos!” But this year, a friend convinced me to try and play in a fantasy league. Let’s just say, I was apprehensive at first, due to the fact that I’m a diehard Broncos fan. I…

THE TOLKIEN ARCHIVES AT MARQUETTE #TOLKIEN, #LOTR

I’ve always been a big fan of Tolkien and enjoy hearing about different techniques he used as a writer and the history of the how the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings came to be. Here is a nice little article from a recent showing of some of Tolkien’s original work, notes, etc. http://fantasy-faction.com/2014/the-tolkien-archives-at-marquette-a-glimpse-at-his-original-manuscripts

The Walking Dead Answer? Sci-Fi’s Z-Nation #walkingdead #scifi

I’m not sure what to think on this, based on just a 30 second trailer. From what I can tell though, this will be WAY more zombie centered than Walking Dead. I had the chance to hear the creator of The Walking Dead speak a bit on that fact actually. The Walking Dead has never been about the “walkers”… It’s always been more about the characters and how they deal with what is going on. This ‘Z-Nation’ trailer seems to be a bit…sharknado for me.   Z-Nation [jwplayer mediaid=”949″]
