They say laughter is the best medicine, but where do you get it?
Okay, okay… that was cheesy. But what else would you expect on National Let’s Laugh Day? Today is a day to remember that you shouldn’t be serious all the time, and laughter is truly the best medicine. According to Mayo Clinic, a good laugh can stimulate many organs including your heart and lungs, activate and relieve your stress response, and aid in muscle relaxation.
There’s lots of things that can trigger a good laugh (like a terrible joke for example – see above), but what really does it for me is a comical show or movie.

Not so long ago, in my small, country hometown that is not so far away, I got a very important message. All the message contained was an image of Star Wars: The Complete Saga on Blu-ray and the message, “Merry Christmas.” This was 2012, and I had just acquired a Blu-ray player solely for the purpose of being able to watch my favorite collection of all time, along with the additional never-before released audio commentary for each movie, interviews with the cast and crew, and over 90 minutes of additional content. I had started saving, but with Christmas right around the corner, I hadn’t accumulated much. However, I did happen to have a best friend who knew me very well and supported my love for all things sci-fi, especially Star Wars.

Over the years, Disney has been known for making attractions based on their movies at their theme parks. Few attempts have been made so far to make movies based on their existing attractions however. Out of those attempts only one, Pirates of the Caribbean, has become such a huge success, it has in turn inspired changes to the ride it was based on. This year celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the original Pirates of the Caribbean attraction and the fifth movie in the Pirates of the Caribbean series, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

It’s that time of year where the world slows down for a bit and we are all reminded about the friends and family we love. Cast your mind back to middle school. Valentine’s Day quickly coming up and you’re at home with your SpongeBob cards writing every one of your classmates names on them making sure you spend a little extra time one for that special someone. You remember it being a hit and they loved your card! Fast forward to today, while that card was one for the brag folder, it’s time to up the ante and really wow them.
(WARNING: I’ll try to keep the spoiler quotient low, but there may be a few. Be advised.)
It’s no mystery to anyone I’m a Star Trek fan. I loved the show in all its incarnations. I’ve adored all of the films (even Star Trek V: The Final Frontier had its virtues). So when it came time for the franchise reboot in 2009, I had hope and faith that J.J. Abrams would keep the spirit alive and give us fans a treat that we could cherish as part of the venerable Gene Roddenberry’s legacy and gift to the world. My words on exiting the theater when Star Trek was released seven years ago? “That’ll do!”
When I was a kid, there were no Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. There were plenty of mutant other things though. Every Saturday, there were black and white sci-fi thrillers about giant ants, shrinking men, and terrible accidents that made terrifying hybrids, like a man with a fly's head.
