This week as my son was home sick in bed, I thought I would treat him to a new DVD. Wreck It Ralph was released to DVD this past Tuesday. An animated Disney flick, that I really had no interest in watching, but thought my game-loving son might.
Truth be told, I enjoyed Wreck It Ralph as much, if not more, than my boy! I was transported back to 1984, when our choice for Friday night fun with friends meant going out to the movies or the local arcade.
Wreck-It Ralph longs to be as beloved as his game’s perfect Good Guy, [...] Read More

Escape From Planet Earth just released this past weekend, so while my husband took our oldest to the Nashville Predators’ hockey game, the youngest and I had a mom-son movie date night! After waiting in line, I couldn’t believe that the first evening showing on Saturday was actually sold out! Holy cow! I didn’t even know this movie was out! Looking over the titles and show times scrolling across the screen, I quickly realized that there were no other family-friendly movies showing at our theater, so we decided to wait the additional hour for the next showing of Escape. Besides, [...] Read More

I developed and animated a little one minute short called “Plank In the Eye” just to learn how to animate in Flash back in 2003. I showed it [...] Read More
When I was little, my parents taught us, through example, to help others in need and never hesitate when given the opportunity to share our blessings with those who were less fortunate. We were a working class family, so money was always a little tight. But amazingly, all of our needs were met, and we always had enough left over to help others. Whether it was the down and out guy on the street corner, the immigrant widow who didn’t know where her children’s next meal would come form, the sick or the elderly; many of whom have no one [...] Read More
