Well after reading about this first thing this morning, I couldn’t wait to long to tell everyone about it. Peter Quill’s Awesome Mix Vol 1 from the Guardians of the Galaxy smash hit movie will be released on actual cassette. I have had the digital version since first seeing the movie and it has to be one of the best soundtracks ever. The cassette will be the first cassette released form the studio in over a decade and will be designed to look just like the one Star Lord had…

Baby Dancin’ Groot is a sure disappointment, #groot, #guardiansofthegalaxy, #gotg, #toys

SO they finally decided the world deserved a dancin’ baby Groot figure form the box office smash hit of the summer Guardians of the Galaxy. Two of my kids fell in love with Groot because of that finally scene and had they put effort into this toy it could have been great, instead we get a poor Groot imitation that doesn’t even move to the rythm. Here is the end scene from the film. And here is the pathetic excuse for the Dancin Groot toy. Now the retail price…

Star Wars vs Guardians of the Galaxy #star wars, #guardians of the galaxy, #A new hope

So I wanted to see the Guardians of the Galaxy from the moment I heard it was being made. I’ve always been a fan of the more obscure, under dog type of heroes. My son has also been a huge fan of Nova for quite sometime. I went to see Guardians twice in the theatres and loved it both times. This got to me wondering why I like certain movies a lot more than others, especially sci fi/ fantasy based ones. I really wondered what it was about Guardians that…

Saturday Night Live hosted by Chris Pratt, #chris pratt, #guardians of the galaxy, #SNL

So Saturday night was Saturday Night Live’s 40th anniversary premiere and as a  long time fan of SNL; I must be honest and say it pretty much blew chunks! It was not one person’s fault but the fault of who ever did the writing for the episode; they missed out entirely. It felt like a completely different show. Most of the established members of SNL were left out and the rookies got all of the screen time. Hopefully SNL can turn it around before long. To top it off the…

Calvin and Hobbes – Guardians of the Galaxy – Best…memories..ever…. #mikesmiller #gotg #calvinandhobbes #artists

Watchtower Forgotten Friday Highlights: Calvin and Hobbes – The Artists that made our memories!     Calvin and Hobbes was a daily comic strip I used to love to read. I had forgotten about them until the recent release of the Rocket and Groot pictures. Bill Watterson created Calvin and Hobbes and it was syndicated from 1985 to 1995. The comic strip follows the crazy adventures of Calvin, a young, mischievous, six year old and his “stuffed” tiger, Hobbes.   The adventurous pair was featured in many national and local…

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge: Interested? #samsung #samsungnoteedge #edge

  I’m not sure what to think about this yet. I actually think it has merit, but not sure if it has user friendly applications that would make it feasible on the customer market! Samsung introduced the new ‘edge’ and indicated it would be sold in the North America market. Not sure when yet. The “edge” has a curved display on the right side, that acts as a ticker or an app shortcut bar. I think that may actually be cool, if it doesn’t interfere with normal use. I can only…
