Rust, Volume Two, Secrets of the Cell preview

by Daddy Mojo on March 22, 2017

Rust was one of the great graphic novels that I didn’t read. Things happened, I got distracted by shiny objects and other graphic novels popped up on my radar. The sequel to Rust, Volume Two, Secrets of the Cell is out and I understand the hype that surrounded the first one. Rust, The Secrets of the Cell is a graphic novel in the classic sense of the word. It provides the characters lots of space to breathe, tell their story and paces it in such a way that readers are rewarded with any perceived sparseness by a quality story with fabulous art. Rust is the story of a robot, a family, a mysterious stranger and programming cool robots. It’s great, full review coming later this week. For now though, check out some of the advance pages from the graphic novel.

Dragonwatch by Brandon Mull lives up to the hype

March 20, 2017

Dragonwatch is written in a way that is appropriate for upper elementary school readers and up to grasp, without making it seem like a children’s book for adults who read it. The central characters in the book are 13 year old Seth and his 15 year old sister Kendra. They’re surrounded by so many creatures, helpers and monsters that the humans sometimes play second fiddle, despite being the main characters in the book.
If I understand things correctly, in the first book they drank some magic milk from a special cow and now they’re able to see the fairy world that exists just beyond their grandparent’s home. In Dragonwatch their cousin’s visit, which have not drank the magic milk, for a visit. Unfortunately for them, the dragons, who were previously banished to safe areas in the kingdom, are becoming restless.

The Sing Blu-Ray DVD has 3 new short films in it also. If you’ve never seen Sing you can go ahead and view them without it ruining anything. If you’ve seen the film then you can watch all three of them and remember why you liked them in the first place. There are also all sorts of music videos, The Making of Sing, character profiles, The Making of the Mini-Movies and more. The 4K Ultra HD comes in a combo pack with the Blu-Ray, Digital HD and UltraViolet too. You can also watch the movie in French, Spanish or English. Sing is rated PG for some mild rude humor and perilous situations. Our 5 year old watched it and was OK with everything he saw.

Disney PIXAR Cars #1, comic book is for the kids 8 and younger

March 19, 2017

Young readers will like the art, short stories and laugh at the appropriate times. However, readers 9 or older will get bored of the comic. Maybe it’s the length of each short story but they all end like an episode of Three’s Company. Someone says a pun, all the characters laugh and we end it with a shot of the credits.

Brookhaven Cherry Blossom Festival is coming March 25-26

March 18, 2017

Bring your leashed dog with you as you walk around the festival or have them (the dog, not you….) participate in the Pet Parade on Sunday afternoon or the Pet Costume Contest that happens immediately after that. There will also be some cool stunt dog show to give your pooch something to strive for in case they need a goal.

One aspect that our kids enjoy about the Brookhaven Cherry Blossom Festival is the variety of things to do. If they aren’t in the mood to see dancing from the Marist School Dance Academy, high school musicians from School of Rock, classic cars or any number of great musical acts then we can just walk around. That walk might lead them to the food and arts & crafts area. Granted snacks are par for the course when it comes to festivals, kettle corn, hot dogs or other staples to keep them happy.
