My daughters have been watching the animated version of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. They don’t have the words just right yet, so they call it The Corn Works. Bwhahahahahaa!!
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1205489/ My reaction: It was pretty good. Worth mentioning: It seemed like all the actors besides Clint Eastwood sucked. The story was good, though somewhat predictable. Post Viewing Research: None. Wife reaction: She enjoyed it.
My wife and I wen tto the LL Cool J concert at Harrahs’ Rincon for Valentine’s Day. Our buddy Jon Schimke hooked us up with tickets. It was a great show, he went with a good mix of the classic jams, as well as some of the newer stuff. He paid tribute to Dr. [...]
