McDonald’s Toy Can be Used as a Stereoscopic Viewer for Virtual Reality Apps!

McDonald’s Toy Can be Used as a Stereoscopic Viewer for Virtual Reality Apps!

Did McDonald’s just give us a cool little stereoscopic viewing device, free with recent Happy Meals?  Why yes, yes they did!  When I first saw this strange little device, I didn’t know what to do with it – this is because we discarded the first set of viewing cards that came with the device.  My assumption was that it was some sort of magnifier tool for reading, so imagine my surprise when my daughter shows…

Our first “Sandwich Saturday” was a success! Sack lunches for the homeless provide an excellent learning experience for my young daughter.

Our first “Sandwich Saturday” was a success!  Sack lunches for the homeless provide an excellent learning experience for my young daughter.

“Sandwich Saturdays” seemed like a great idea! My wife and I have been kicking around this idea for years – spend a few bucks on the essential basics, whip up a bunch of sack lunches (in the same way my own Grandma used to make a balanced sack lunch for my siblings and me as we were kids) and distribute them amongst the local homeless population.  While the plan seemed simple enough, we continued to put it…

Batman: Dead End – the Fan Film You MUST See!

Batman: Dead End – the Fan Film You MUST See!

Dude, this thing was made in 2003….  You’re a little late to the party. Yeah, I know I am about 12 years behind the curve on this one….  Doesn’t matter.  In fact, the elapsed time since the introduction of this stellar Batman “fan film” makes this post even more relevant – enough time has passed where most people either haven’t seen it or have simply allowed it to slip off their radar. Consider this a…

She Makes it Look So Easy – A Big “Thank You” and “Happy Mother’s Day” to My Awesome Wife!

She Makes it Look So Easy – A Big “Thank You” and “Happy Mother’s Day” to My Awesome Wife!

Ask any person who does not have kids how their life would  be different with a child, and I guarantee you their answer would be grossly inadequate.  The reality of the situation is that no amount of planning or conceptualization can adequately prepare a person for what lies in store for them the moment they bring a small, helpless little human being into this world, and accept full responsibility for said human with all the seemingly endless…

If you loved Power Rangers as a kid, you will love this remake…. If you hated Power Rangers as a kid, you will still love this remake.

If you loved Power Rangers as a kid, you will love this remake….  If you hated Power Rangers as a kid, you will still love this remake.

Very few television shows were as iconic to an entire generation as the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers TV series, produced by the prolific kid-friendly-pseudo-kung-fu-character-manufacturing-machine that is Saban Entertainment between the years 1993-1996.  Of course, the original spawned no less than 17 subsequent spin-off series which ran for many years (with new projects still in discussion), as well as a couple of movies (which were basically just long versions of a standard TV episode, with more Zord screen time)….

Humanity is Generally Good: Part One

Humanity is Generally Good: Part One

Considering what we find in news reports every single day on a global scale, it is easy to fall into the proverbial rut of despair – at times we begin to believe that humans, by nature, are evil (or at the very least, incredibly self-serving) creatures, capable of inflicting great suffering on those around them.  At times, this is accurate.  There is indeed a great amount of evil in the world, and we cannot deny…

Superman Must Have Worn These Glasses When Disguised as Clark Kent

Superman Must Have Worn These Glasses When Disguised as Clark Kent

Superman must have had a hell of a time trying to conceal his true identity, considering he spent so much time flying around with his face exposed for all the world to see.  Apparently, it isn’t difficult in Metropolis to convince your closest friends that you are not “that other guy”, simply by combing your hair and donning a pair of slick, retro glasses (oh, and tripping over random shit and feigning incompetency while acting as…

You Heard Me Correctly – There Are Guys Out There Building Their Own Batmobiles

You Heard Me Correctly – There Are Guys Out There Building Their Own Batmobiles

There are very few cars in the world as beloved and identifiable as the Batmobile designed by the late, great Anton Furst and featured in the 1989 Batman movie by Tim Burton (starring, of course, Michael Keaton as the iconic Batman and Jack Nicholson as the Joker).  Inspiring awe, wonder and respect from all who gaze upon it, the 1989 rendition of the Batmobile is by far the overall fan favorite (despite multiple incarnations between movies,…
