Kings Island Opening Day 2012


Today is opening day at Kings Island.  After an unseasonably warm winter, the park opened on a cold, rainy day.  Did that stop us from going?  No way!  Did we stay long?  Uh, no.  But we had a lot of fun in a very short time.

This morning, Disney presented “What’s new and what’s next” for the Walt Disney World Resort.  As expected, there was nothing earth-shattering.  But Disney did parcel out a few nuggets of information including an updated time-line for the Fantasyland expansion.

Art of Animation Resort Map


It’s been a hectic month.  But this week in particular has been a doozy.  My wife had her wisdom teeth removed and her recovery was messy.  I’m happy to report, she’s on the mend.  But after a long week, we could all use a bit of a pick-me-up.

Springtime Updates


This is one of those rare posts where I take a break from snarky comments on pop culture and talk about my personal life.  Or, more to the point, this is where I post pictures of my kids.

Super Hero Cartoon Block Smack-Down: DC Nation Vs. Marvel Universe


When I was a kid, Saturday morning was the highlight of my week.  The reason?  Saturday morning cartoons.  Sure, there were cartoons on every day after school.  But only for an hour or two.  And then the reruns of old sitcoms started.  But Sarurday morning featured hours of brand new (or newish) cartoons.  Best of all, there was the Superfriends.
