Avatar: The Last Podcasters, Episode 3 "The Southern Air Temple"

Here's the second entry to my friend Chris - The Objective Geek - and my Avatar: The Last Podcasters show. Check out this week's video to hear my microphone simultaneously manage to capture my breathing and sound to quiet, and get our contrasting opinions on the movie Ready Player One. Oh, and we spend an inordinate amount of time talking about the third episode from Book 1 of Avatar: The Last Airbender titled "The Southern Air Temple."

2nd Annual Charity Slow-Pitch Softball Mixer (& My Wife's 30th Birthday Party)

The details for the 2nd Annual Slow-Pitch Softball Mixer for the Children's Miracle Network are set! (Mostly.) As an added bonus, we'll be celebrating my wife Heather's dirty 30th birthday! It's a little early, but being such a stand-up person, it would mean the world to her to dedicate her birthday efforts toward a good, fun cause. Last year we raised $475; this year we hope to exceed $500!

My friend Chris - The Objective Geek - and I love talking about Avatar: The Last Airbender, but since my wife and I moved, Chris and I don't see each other anymore.

I recently delved back into the larger series in both formats and felt compelled to share my highly scientific findings.

Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots v. Karate Fighters: The Best 1-on-1 Fighting Toys

Image result for rockem sockem robotsRock ’Em Sock ’Em Robots were first released in 1964, created by Marvin Glass and Associates (designers of Lite Brite, Operation, Simon, Mouse Trap and more) and produced by Louis Marx and Company, but have been made most recently by Mattel. It was probably the first time kids could interactively simulate beating up their buddies. Today there are countless toys with some foundation in Rock 'Em Sock 'Em ideals. None are as recognizable as the original, but there is one name that I believe comes close.
