2016-08-19_22.26.17Hey guys! Welcome to my blog and thanks for hanging out with me a few minutes as we talk about August’s Super Geek Box! We got this box in the mail today and couldn’t wait to dive in! We had a good time with this one, you can watch us unbox this one and take a look at the items inside in the video below:

That’s right, if you watched the video you saw that Vanessa actually had her picture chosen to go into the insert in this month’s box! We were very excited about that! Overall this wasn’t my favorite box due to the items inside but it wasn’t the worst either! If you want to get your own box you can use THIS LINK to order and it helps support our blog as well! Also make sure to subscribe to us on Youtube so we can keep making the videos!

Lego Dimensions – Part 5

LDToday we did make a couple of awesome advances. First and foremost we DID achieve the 1,000,000 studs and get the 2x stud multiplier! I was very excited about that. After that we did get some more additions to the collection in the mail today. We got Bart Simpson fun pack, Doc from Back to the Future fun pack and Emmet from Lego World. I also did contact Lego and they are sending me a replacement base for the Back to the Future level pack that was torn up. It was very hassle-free to get it replaced which made me very happy! I am impatient so I hate having to wait for it but it’s worth it. We did get Bart and his car built in today’s playing. Then we jumped right into the Simpson’s Adventure World (since we don’t have the level pack yet). We did some of the construction, got the red brick and got some gold bricks. We also did build Emmet’s Excavator as well! The collection has grown nicely!

After we done that for a while (and it getting close to bedtime because of work for us both) we decided to go ahead and build Doc’s Traveling Time Train as well.  We went into the Back to the Future Adventure World and played around a bit and got the red brick and a gold brick or two. Fun times!

Lego Dimensions – Part 4

LDIn today’s installment of Lego Dimensions I am going to include a short little video of our collection so far (minus the starting 3 characters and portal). It’s not in fantastic quality but it gets the point across so you can kinda see what we have.

A few other notes, we did play around much more in the Adventure worlds and we also did beat the Ghostbusters level pack today as well! I think that level pack is my favorite to date thus far. We also got the Back to the Future level pack today, sadly, one of the toy tags in the pack was messed up so we couldn’t finish the level until I can contact Lego and get it replaced. This is the first encounter we have had with defective items so I’m not too upset about it. But what we played of it up until that build was awesome. And we did also add the Scooby and Shaggy fun pack to the collection today as well and played around in that Adventure World after building Shaggy, Scooby, Mystery Machine and the Scooby Snack. I really have enjoyed that one as well. We did venture into the Wizard of Oz level in the main story mode again to farm some studs in an effort to hurry and use the 1,000,000 red brick to get 2x studs. As of this blog we hadn’t quite made it yet but hopefully in the next blog that will change. After that I think we are going to start trying to upgrade more vehicles as we wait for more additions to arrive! We did, however get ALL the minikits, rescue the Wizard of Oz and get RuleBreaker on this level! So we have everything done on it!

This has been an exciting (and expensive lol) adventure into Lego Dimensions but we as a family are having a blast! We may have to start taking donations to finish up all the collections! Ha! I have been ignoring all the other games I was working on for this one for the past 4 days now so that shows that it has been exceptional. Anyway, on to the video, check out the collection so far! If anyone wants to contribute a Portal Level Pack I would happily thank you by name in the blog and put a video or pictures of the unboxing in the blog as well. Just in case. That seems to be the hardest one to find unless you have it at a local store (which ours doesn’t).

Silicon Valley Season 1 and 2

So a couple of days ago I finished watching all the episodes of Silicon Valley that are currently out, both seasons.  HBO did renew Silicon Valley for a 3rd season and I am very excited about that! In my opinion Silicon Valley is…well, first, let’s start with my rundown and thoughts from the beginning.

So I actually tried to watch this show a long while back and I simply didn’t get into it. But, I did finally download them from HBO GO on demand and decided to binge watch them. And I am glad I did. The show is focused around a group of ‘friends’ that work in the tech industry. Then one of them has an idea that everyone suddenly wants. From there it’s the trials and tribulations associated with taking a company from nothing to something and the steps in between. I have to admit this appealed to me a lot. The story is well written, the characters are very likable and quite honestly, it’s hilarious. There are so many small things that are funny that just make the show work it’s fun to watch just for those.

Another of the most impressive things about this series, while it is a comedy, it’s very intelligent and the character development works exactly how it’s supposed to. You hate who you’re supposed to hate and you’re rooting for who you’re supposed to root for, even when that person isn’t your typical main character. So to continue my thought from the beginning of the blog…

In my opinion Silicon Valley is well worth watching and probably one of the better shows on TV currently. I would highly recommend watching it.
