Now that we all can take a collective sigh of relief that the days of 2016 are gone (but not forgotten), let’s make plans for 2017. We each picked three movie-esque items to work on for the next year. And if all goes well, and Damon Killian doesn’t show up hosting some game show, then… Read More ›

Do you believe in Santa Claus vs The Martians?

12 Days of Christmas #7 At the start of every Holiday season, our kids eagerly await the return of our Elf on a Shelf, George. And when he shows up, they get EXCITED!

A Christmas Playlist

12 Days of Christmas # 3 There are millions of Christmas songs and albums to fill every Holiday cheer void known to human, Muppet or droid. But you can’t listen to ‘em all, so I’ve cobbled together a short playlist of my very favorite rock n’ roll Christmas-themed tunes.
