Bleep Blee Bloop Blee Bloop

Brandon and I celebrated birthday number 31 together this year with a magnificent Star Wars meets Transformers theme. Here are just a few pics of the event. I'm somewhat partial to my padawan (Zoe) dueling Brandon's padawan (Oliver). But truly, the Pièce de résistance can only be the magnificent R2D2 cake that Lindsay made. Behold! Marvel at it's glory!

Telmarines Sow What They Reepicheep

Oh my awesomeness! I simply can't wait for this movie. Here's a first look at the mighty mouse himself, Reepicheep. Try not to drool too much.

New Gladiators! Woo-hoo!

Anyone that really knew me as a kid, knew of my love for the show American Gladiators. I love the combination of true skill with all the showmanship. That said, one of the most thrilling aspects of the newer incarnation of the show is that it allows former competitors to become new gladiators in the following season. The new season, kicking off on Monday, May 12th (can it be called a new season if it's occurring during the same actual season as the previous one ended?), will be featuring both winners from the last season, Evan Dollar and Monica Carlson. They will be appearing as Rocket and Jet respectively. I just feel sorry for the poor schmuck that has to be the first to face Rocket on The Wall.

A link to a preview for Jet right here. Click on the 5th video on the list.
