Mind. Blown. I never saw that before, but now I have to go watch LEGO Movie again to see how it plays out like that.

I liked this video, especially the end showing the logo in a broken state.

A toy penguin arm is what I am seeing. But you said super easy, so I'm now second guessing myself.

I liked Central Intelligence a lot. Very funny. Dwayne Johnson has really made a name for himself past The Rock.

Great memory to have for Nathan (and everyone else). Easter meets Batman could easily be the title of this video. Great editing and audio mixing.

You are definitely not in the minority on Beck's sound and music getting better with each new release. I often track the entire album "Morning Phase" and relish in the fact that it won Album of the Year a few years back. As for "Wow" all I can say is WOW. It's a great song. I actually prefer "Dreams" over it for non-stop listening. But I like it a lot. Hoping a new album will make it's way this year. Glad you adopted the MFS. My next one is this coming Monday.

I didn't forget, but sometimes I'm not at home to celebrate. I was this year.

This week looks like a bolt, although the background is giving me pause on that answer.

Awesome to see MFS on your blog. I used to listen to Alkaline Trio back some years ago. I think they played a Van's Warped Tour and I liked them enough to want to hear more. I don't recall the last time I heard their music, but from what I remember, it was good.

Until Kris Marshall being in Love Actually, I didn't know who he was. My wife is the Doctor Who fan here. She was a big Matt Smith fan and actually doesn't mind Peter Capaldi. But when I told her about Kris Marshall, I had to tell her about his role in Love Actually before she could picture him as the new Doctor. She says she will give him a chance.

Yes, you are very correct in that being the main purpose to get people to visit the indie stores. They are the ones that still embrace music compared to every other store.

I've been a good 5 times over the last 10 years. And my record store is less than 2 miles from my house (a place called Graywhale). I've seen a lot this year that excites me, but I don't currently have a turntable, so it would be a collector thing for me, or take to my friends house, who does have an extensive vinyl collection and I could hear it on his system. We shall see what happens today. If something does, I will be sure to blog about it.

One of those heart melting moments that will last a lifetime. I have many of those over the years that I recall every so often.

I've always been a fan of Kate's vocals. I like Cindy's as well, but Kate has had the lead on most of the B-52's songs. Have you seen B-52's live before? Incredible performances each time. I've seen them live 4 times now (as recent as last July). And you know of Kate's solo album from 2015 called "Guitars and Microphones"?

Oh yeah. So excited for this (which if you couldn't tell by my blog post, it would be from my life long love of Star Wars)

You did a good job of stumping a lot of us last week. The green is making me curious, especially with your geek eluding. I'm going to say it's a calculator display.

Sad to see LEGO taking a manufacturing page from companies that skip on quality. We do except more from LEGO. I mean, they have a decades old tradition to hold up for those of us that love their bricks.

Riding high off last year's World Series win, I'd like to see the Cubs have a great season this year.

Oh wow. Great find. Love the Hot For Teacher 45. And that Pearl Jam Ten Club issue. I had a ton of 45's for many years. Alas, they fell victim to a mother that hated my music. I wish I would have taken more photos of the things I had growing up. Would be awesome to have proof of my memories.

My 4th grade teacher was Miss Bradford. I had a crush on her, even given my young age. She was always happy and never yelled at any of us in class, regardless how we were as kids in a classroom.
