It starts tonight – ROX vs SOX!  Man I can’t believe the run the Red Sox are getting, even here in town. And I’m surprised just how much disrespect is being thrown Colorado’s way, from all over the country. Well, ok, I can believe it – I mean, who are the Rockies? Especially compared to a team with…

So it’s set now, the World Series starts on Wednesday with the Rockies traveling to Boston to face the Sox. The Rox match up pretty well with the Sox; they took two of three at Fenway Park during the regular season, and outscored Boston 20-5. Hopefully the long layoff won’t make Colorado rusty and they continue…

I’m starting to feel like the announcer guy from the Price is Right for as many times recently that I’ve announced "A New CAR!"… except I’m always talking about the Mattel line based on the Disney/Pixar film CARS.    The Wal-Mart Wave The Wal-Mart waves that we saw at Comic Con are now shipping to…

Last week as we were getting ready to walk out the door in the morning for work and school I picked up my now 4-year old daughter.   We were standing next to my shelf of DC Direct figures so she wanted to show off her super hero knowledge to her old man.  She said…

Unbelievable! The Cubs are my team, my family’s team, but I’ve always had a soft spot for the Colorado Rockies. Their first season here was the same year I moved to Denver, and I remember skipping class to go to Rockies games. A warm summer day, the hapless Rockies, the knowledge that the rest of your sucker classmates…

HOLY COW! Cubbies win the Central!! No matter how weak the division is, the Cubs went from last in 2006 to first this year, from 30 games under .500 to 84 wins so far – unbelievable!!! The Brewers gave it a great run, but the Cubs pulled it out. WOO HOO!! My Pop and I spent the…

Seriously.  I just read an article where the author wrote "livelly hood" and "frase" (phrase) and "saposed" (supposed).  How the hell can the American public be so poor at spelling?  I went to a public school, but I actually know how to spell things like "you’re" and "acquire" and "rogue".  Maybe I have some latent spelling super…

With the somber anniversary of 9/11 today, my thoughts and prayers go out to everyone that was affected by this awful event. Take a few moments today to remember the sacrifices made that day.

CARS-  Mattel’s most addicting line. As you have seen from our Comic Con coverage there is a whole FLEET of new cars coming from Mattel’s Disney/Pixar Cars line. Wal-mart exclusives, boxed sets and a WHOLE LOT MORE are coming our way. Out here in LA it looks like most retailers have panicked over the "Sarge"…

So over the holiday weekend, we went to the family condo up in the mountains for a little downtime.  While zoning out in front of the TV, I happen to stumble upon the Patrick Swayze Marathon and one of the greatest awful movies of all time – Roadhouse.  This movie is horribly bad, but totally…

It started during SDCC. I didn’t even plan to watch.  I was just flipping by. I swear. When I saw it, I didn’t want to like it.  Even though I knew they’d once featured AFI. I was drawn in a bit, then I started watching the regular show. I found myself learning about things I…

Moving. Are there many things that are less fun or more stressful that uprooting your family and possessions, duping your friends into helping you toss them into a truck and then unpack your life all over again? Ugh. Sure, we’re excited about the new house. But that excitement wears off when you realize just how…

  OK kids, the new Super Friends: the Legendary Super Powers Show DVD hits stores today and on it they have a nifty little feature on the Super Powers toyline. The fun part of all this is that I’m one of the on-camera talent involved (alongside luminaries such as Mark Waid, Georg Brewer, Paul Levitz…

In honor of the great Metamorpho Build-A-Figure coming in January from Mattel and the Four Horsemen,  may I present Man or Astro-Man?‘s awesome composition "Man Made of CO2"? Hit the link for some coolness.

PART III Thursday July 14 I remember the alarm going off and thinking “no way in hell is it 7 am already…” – but it was.  The night before, Aaron managed to talk me and my 6’4” frame into crashing on the 5-foot foldabed, while his filthy carcass got to enjoy the nice soft hotel bed.  Jerk! …

So… I blame IronCow.   Yep.  This is Matt’s fault.    Of course, I have really enjoyed watching the first 2 seasons of the new Dr. Who series on the Sci Fi Network and BBC America.  And, yes I was looking forward to the new season starting back on July 6th.  Yeah, I watched a…

PART II Wednesday July 13 We survived the night in Motel Hell, choosing to not take showers and just get the hell out of there. We heard all sorts of bizarre noises during the night. Very freaky. I felt bad for Aaron since he was actually using the remote for the TV and God knows…

The last time I was at SDCC was in 2005; I usually try to go back every other year but there’s just too much going on this year to attend.  But I can share with you guys some insight into the wild time I did have during the last trip to San Diego. Of course, for those…

So we finally found a house, after roughly a year of looking and discussing finances, schools, location, etc. Since sold our previous house last August, we’ve been renting a townhome and keeping pretty much everything packed for the eventual next move into the new house. This includes almost my entire collection of toys, prints, comic…
