- blank: a vinylmation love story -

have you seen blank: a vinylmation love story? it’s this great new stop motion animation created through a partnership between disney interactive and google. it’s 38 minutes and does not have any dialogue, however it’s very creative and surprisingly entertaining for both kids and adults. blank can be watched for free on google play. i highly recommend checking it out!!

google also has a bonus website to share frames of the film. once shared, you gain access to an extra short called cranes in love.

- dual-screen dvd player -

we never thought we’d be the family driving around with dvd players on the backs of our headrests, however after going on a long road trip with the kids, we’ve learned they can be a life saver. we’re not promoting using such players for everyday use, but they definitely do a great job at grabbing your child’s attention during travels.

we purchased our sylvania dual-screen dvd player from walmart before a recent road trip to virginia. it was around $70 but totally worth the money in our opinion! one of the screens has the main controls/player which then connects to the other screen. we were concerned the cords would not reach across our car, since one carseat faces the front and one faces the back, but luckily they were long enough.

so yeah, we’ve totally become that family! if you have kids and are headed on a long road trip, we highly recommend investing in one of these players and not feeling bad about it!

- kiki’s delivery service -

clementine has become a big fan of kiki’s delivery service. it’s an older animation from hayao myazaki & studio ghibli, who created my neighbor totoro and ponyo, which clementine also loves.

the main character kiki is a witch who makes deliveries by flying on her broomstick. clementine now tries to ‘fly high’ like kiki on her little broom and gets super frustrated when she can’t get off the ground!

it’s adorable to say the least.

- prince avalanche soundtrack -

the prince avalanche soundtrack came out today with new music from david wingo (aka ola podrida) & explosions in the sky. for those interested, you can find a limited white vinyl version of the soundtrack at your local independent record store (ie. criminal records & decatur cd). it comes in a gatefold sleeve and features a pretty sweet design from temporary residence. the LP also includes the digital download and a sticker!

- farewell richard dawson -

richard dawson passed away yesterday. he was the last surviving regular from the match game, which we are big fans of. both charles nelson reilly and brett somers died in 2007 and host gene rayburn died in 1999. you may also remember dawson from family feud or hogan’s heroes.
