I was listening to the Minions of the Monster Master the other day (an actual play podcast covering several different systems, definitely suggest checking them out) and they happened to mention a new movie coming out that's a remake of an old favorite. The first quest that came to my mind; Why?
Originally released in 1990, Total Recall starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and was directed by Paul Verhoeven... like anyone didn't know these things. To me Total Recall is one of the signature Schwarzenegger films along with Terminator and Predator. Is it a great movie? In its own way, yes but why remake it? It just didn't really make any sense to me.
Then I saw the trailer for the new movie.
A lot of things have changed (no more trip to Mars, the addition of flying cars) but the basic story line seems to be pretty much the same. Even so this looks like it will be one wild ride that I can't wait to check out. Until next time...

My daughter recently got some new Legos that I just had to share. Check them out.
These are two different sets. On the left is the Ambush Attack with its ATV and a Coelephysis while the Tower Takedown with its jet ski and Pteranodon is on the right. These are some really nice sets and the dinosaurs are really cool. As an added plus, the minifigs are also equipped with tranquilizer guns complete with darts!
All told there are seven different sets available and I definitely recommend checking them out if you haven't already. I mean really, Lego Dinosaurs? What's not to love! Until next time...

While stepping off of the edge might not be the safest thing to do at times (such as when you are looking at a skyline from a roof top for example...), it is a great thing to do when it comes to your hobby. Be it skateboarding, painting, singing, dancing; the only way to get better at any of these things is to keep pushing yourself to get to that next level.
I had painted this figure a few years back and was not unhappy with how she turned out.
