The Annual Trip to Howell’s Pumpkin Farm

Over the weekend, we made our annual excursion to Howell’s Pumpkin Farm, and again, had a total blast.

It’s crazy what kids can remember…yes, this was Dexter’s third trip to Howells…yet I didn’t think he would have remembered as much as he did.

We get there, get our tickets, and as soon as we walk in…Dexter bolts for the Corn Bin, yelling “Corn Bin! Corn Bin”. He was one excited dude.

Priscilla had a blast as well…it’s nice when you get to that stage where both your kids are walking and talking and having fun.

My apologies to my son…who really wanted to beat his mom & Priscilla in the go-kart race…but due his mother’s super-strength & speed…they left us in the dust. That warranted another trip up the combine (he looovvves the combine) to appease his sadness.

Hello…I’m a photobomber.

This Is the End

Seth Rogen, James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Jay Baruchel & Jonah Hill…as Seth Rogen, James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Jay Baruchel & Jonah Hill…during the Apocalypse. So incredibly vulgar…wrong…and flat out funny.

My wife commented about 90 minutes in…”This is so stupid”. She was right, but I loved it. I would highly recommend it.

The Best Pearl Jam Interview Ever

When Eddie talks about his father, and what he found…incredible.

Mars Can Have Her

I’ve never been a fan of Alicia Keys…I’ve mentioned that before…and the reasons continue to grow.

In a recent interview Alicia Keys said she believes in aliens, and thinks they’re living here on Earth…and also, she would consider letting one take her to space, but on one condition. “I’d have to feel the alien’s vibe. I’m a vibe person. If it was ET, I may go”.

The question is…would Mars get sick of her and send her back. No givebacks Mars, that’s the deal.

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus’ much anticipated(?) album “Bangerz” is out today…so, this will be quick.

Korn

Korn, a band that I thought was one of the coolest things ever back in the mid 90s, has a new album out “Paradigm Shift”. Shockingly, I never owned a Korn shirt…how isDownload Festival 2013 - Performances - Day 1 that possible…and yes, I thought I was super-cool when I thought I was the only one who knew what A.D.I.D.A.S. meant (for those not in the know…it stands for “All Day I Dream About Sex”)

Top 6 Korn Songs

6. All in the Family

5. Freak on a Leash
