Review: A Christmas Snow

holiday
Wednesday 06 October 2010 at 12:38 pm
For many, Christmas is that magical time of year. Yet, for some the Christmas season is filled with heart ache and regret, which makes it a difficult time of year.  This Christmas season a new movie is coming out that contains characters with real pasts which directly influence how they approach the holiday.

I was fortunate enough to get a sneak preview of this new movie, A Christmas Snow, from Trost Moving Pictures.  I think you will find it enjoyable, especially if you enjoy the heartwarming Hallmark special type of show (no big explosions or surprise trips to the North Pole in this one). 

The first few minutes might have you thinking you're watching another rendition of A Christmas Carol, but hang in there, you aren't.  The story finds the main three characters, who are practically strangers to one another, trapped together and snowed in just days before Christmas. The result is a humorous, touching, and inspiring tale of how each character impacts the others journey to face their own past as well as facing their future.  The movie covers topics of forgiveness, loss, redemption, hurt, denial and change.  This makes for a great Christmas movie worthy of repeat viewings and after viewing conversations.

I found this movie to be well cast.  Each cast member pulls off their roles quite well.  However, the new comer child actress Cameron Ten Napel does steal the show.  Her energy and tenacity really makes this movie fun. It is her performance that will make you want to watch it again each year.

When watching a new DVD, I'm also interested in the extras.  This DVD comes with cast interviews and behind the scenes footage which were fun to watch and informative.   The feature I was most intrigued with was the "Narration for the Visually Impaired," which I had never seen on a DVD.  If this feature is enabled additional narration is included to explain what is happening on screen.  So that is an added bonus, if you need such a feature.

A Christmas Snow, check it out.

Introducing "Banana Force" the band

rock
Saturday 24 April 2010 at 02:39 am
It recently came to our attention that there is a band that exists by the name of "Banana Force."  We are pumped by this, because they aren't some silly barber shop group but a full force rock n roll powerhouse, which is exactly what you would expect from a name like Banana Force.  

We are unaware of whether the band and their frontman D'llian are big fans of our site, or just fellow potassium jedi that have learned the ways of the banana force.  We'd love to learn more.  Please leave comments if you know more about this band.

This is what we do know.  The band rocks, and we have some video proof to prove it.  Check it!

My "Crappy" Gaming Setup

pong
Friday 23 April 2010 at 04:24 am

A good friend of mine informed me that I might have a chance at winning Engadget's Worst Gaming Setup Contest. I feel like I should go on about how terrible it is, but I'm sorry, I can't... I guess I enjoy old crap. And yes, this is truly my gaming system. I've been known to arrive at gaming nights with this stuff and some are not so impressed, yet others kick back and enjoy its' beauty. However, if the fine folks at Engadget feel it is the crappiest, more power to them, cause I wouldn't turn down a custom PS3 Slim from Rockstar Games.

So here is the low down on my gaming set up. The game is pong, and if you want to play different flavors of pong, you need different systems.  So I have a few, each providing their own variety of the game.

It is so sad that CareerBuilder.com stopping making ads without the chimps. Shouldn't all ads have chimps in them? I sure hope they helped these guys find new work.
