I'm a Batman veteran. Since I was a young lad, I have been perfecting my knowledge on all things DC. When I was younger I played the first Lego Batman game created and I loved it.

Official OUIJA Movie Trailer- Not Just A Board Game Anymore


I love board games, but I have never heard of OUIJA [Editor's Note: I remember this game cause I am old but the commercials made ghosts seem like the coolest thing EVER].

Carter’s Fall Fashion Trends (Now In Sizes 7-12!) #CartersFallStyle

Kid's Fall Fashions Carters

The very first outfit my daughter ever wore was a super cute Carter's dress, which, at 3 days old, became one of my go to kid's clothing brands for her. Carter's is the largest branded marketer of young children’s apparel in the U.S. so I was able to find them wherever we were, even when we traveled cross country. They were there through bottles and diapers, and I admit to dabbing a tear when … [Read more...]

Mad Max: Fury Road- First Look Video And Artwork

Xbox at E3


I attended the Electronic Entertainment Expo...and it was glorious!  For years I’ve watched E3 coverage on TV and on my XBox, longing for the day that I would get to be there in person.  And it finally happened!
