So a funny thing happened over the weekend. A video that I had posted to Facebook of my kids playing with a projection of spiders went viral! In 4 days it jumped to 1 million views. Over the years Chris and I have worked extremely hard making dozens of videos hoping to get noticed. Once in a while something would hit and get us in the tens of thousands and we’d do jumping jacks. Meanwhile all I had to do was record my kids playing with some spiders for a minute and it goes viral almost instantly. The internet is a fickle beast. Enjoy and Happy Halloween!
I just couldn’t help myself. With the boys sleeping for the night I decided to go ahead and finish the Hoth Medical Chamber myself. Even the simplest Lego design takes some time to finish so I was pretty exhausted by the time it was done. Still, I thought it came out pretty good and Alex even got to try it out. Enjoy!
Now that I finally found Alex at the end of part 1, I get to see exactly what he loves most about Minecraft. Speficially, blowing everything up. We also get into skins, lava, and spawning creatures. Enjoy!
Alex has taken over the channel! He decided that he wanted to play Minecraft in 2 player mode and I was more than happy to oblige. I’m not a Minecraft expert but he didn’t a great job teaching me the basics. Build things and blow them up. Let’s see how long it takes for me just to find him in part 1. Enjoy!
For a set that broke things up into 3 pieces we’re having quite the time getting past the first part. I can’t believe I didn’t expect Alex to do what he did right after finishing that section. I hate to be like Lord Business but he brings it out of me. Enjoy!
We’re on the road! On a trip to Orlando, Florida we couldn’t not visit Legoland (or is it LEGOLAND?). And when you visit Legoland (LEGOLAND?) you have to go to the stores and Alex could not get his eyes off of the Star Wars Hoth Medical Chamber set. The kid is obsessed with the medical droids and has an affinity for labs in general so this was a no brainer. Enjoy!
For the second straight year Mattel had a lot to show off at the New York Comic Con. Among their usual assortment of figurines and show exclusives was a peak of the latest addition to their collection of Ghostbusters equipment. To go along with the PKE meter and ghost trap, you will soon be able to get your hands on the goggles from the movie! Mattel did another great job recreating the classic look and you can expect to see them available sometime next year.
Here are some more pictures from Mattel’s display including DC, WWE, Masters of the Universe, Ghostbusters and the hoverboard from Back to the Future 2:
Don’t worry, we’re not nearly done with our Comic Con Coverage. We still have video games, tv shows and more to talk about. That will all have to wait until next week though. We know what you really want. COSPLAY! I hope you don’t mind but we added in an overall wrap of the entire 4 day weekend that pretty much wiped Chris and I out for a couple days. Enough of reading what I write though, BRING ON THE COSPLAY
By the way, don’t forget to check out the details of the video on YouTube. We have links to plenty of talented people that all helped us in some way over the weekend. Thanks for watching everyone.
