TUNE IN ALERT: Aloha Vet on Nat Geo WILD! Season Finale TOMORROW!


Dr. Scott Sims is one of Hawaii’s best-kept local secrets. 



Not your typical veterinarian, he treats both wild and domestic animals, and when islanders need help with their pets and livestock, he’s the one they call. 



Some clients live in hard-to-reach locations, but if an animal needs help, Dr. Sims always finds a way to get there, even if he has to walk, ride a horse, drive an ATV, fly a plane or swim. 




It’s a wild job that’s an adventure every day. “Aloha Vet” airs Saturdays at 9 PM ET/PT on Nat Geo WILD.

Be sure to tune in to see the season finale episode “Last Resort” premiering Saturday, April 11, at 9 PM ET/PT: There’s never a dull moment with Dr. Sims – today, one goat gets his horns trimmed and another gets castrated, a horse needs a lump removed from his rear, and an old dog needs a tumor removed from his stomach.

New #MLP Season 5 Starts TOMORROW!

So much has changed for our Mane Six friends since we last saw them! Twilight has her own castle in the center of Ponyville, and the title of Princess of Friendship. Heck, even Hub Network has changed into Discovery Family Channel now.

So, Pony-heads--Bronies and Pegasisters alike--are you ready for even more adventure in Season 5? Because I've had the opportunity to preview this weekend's first episode! No spoilers from me, but here's a quick synopsis:

Image courtesy Discovery Networks.

The Mane Six friends learn the secret of Twilight's new castle, and are led to an eerie village in the far east of Equestria. Something is strange about the new place (can you guess what it is from the image above?)... The utilitarian "utopia" lives much like a cultish-communist commune--very Orwellian "1984"--and has a dark secret. Twilight and her friends must figure out why they are being sent there and what they must accomplish.

Strange magic is afoot here, and Twilight, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Apple Jack, Fluttershy, and Rarity must figure out how to save the day...

... and THEMSELVES!

Be sure to tune in Saturday, April 4th at 11am ET on Discovery Family Channel (formerly Hub Network, check your local listings) to see what happens! All I can say is that it's exciting!

BOOK REVIEW - #Frozen: The Poster Collection

About a year ago, I was given the opportunity to go to Los Angeles to go behind the scenes of the blockbuster Disney animated film Frozen. I got to meet the directors, play in the rigging lab, even voice Olaf! It was an experience I'll never forget, and it forever made Frozen hold a very special place in my heart.



When Insight Editions contacted me to check our their new book Frozen: The Poster Collection, I couldn't resist.



The book is large and absolutely gorgeous. Each poster is double sided and printed on thick, high quality paper. The images included feature memorable scenes from the film, popular characters, and--my favorite part--foreign market versions of the film posters.



The images are stunningly high quality and show details you may have missed in the theatre or at home on your television. My camera couldn't do them justice, but I was most impressed by the fact that you can see the woolen texture of Anna's skirt! Just incredible!




 The book retails for $24.99 and is available wherever books are sold, including Amazon, linked below!





Disclosure: I received a free copy of the book for review purposes. For more information, please see my Disclosure tab.

TV Boy Reviews: Simpsons skin pack for #Minecraft

Since TV Boy is starting to be more active in things he enjoys, when this opportunity came through my email, I was excited to share it with him:




Minecraft players can bring their favorite characters from The Simpsons to life in The Simpsons Skin Pack, the newest downloadable content for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition and Minecraft: Xbox One Edition, available for $2.99 USD.


Create your own blocky version of Springfield with the entire Simpsons family—Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie— plus 19 of Springfield Elementary School’s beloved characters from the Emmy Award-winning animated show and the longest-running scripted show in television history.

Simpsons fans now have the opportunity to bring their favorite Springfield residents into the world of Minecraft. Some have taken it to the extreme, building entire sequences using the characters shortly after their release.



Since I don't really know how to Minecraft (is it even a verb?), I deferred to the expert in our household for this review. He was super excited to do it. So, here is TV Boy's video review of the Simpsons Minecraft Skin Pack! 




Disclosure: We were provided a free redemption code in order to review this project. For more information, please see my Disclosures tab.

Nat Geo WILD - Bloggers Gone Wild!

I've been a bad blogger. Blame it on the winter. I get lazy when it gets cold. Such is the life of arthritis. Everything hurts. Blah.

But! Today it's in the mid-40's here in Ohio, the sun is out, and I'm feeling motivated!

I've been invited to be a part of the Nat Geo WILD channel's Bloggers Gone Wild community! The folks at Nat Geo were kind enough to send along a couple neat gifts and some promo material for their new seasons of Cesar 911 and Unlikely Animal Friends, both of which are in full swing now on Nat Geo WILD!

Our Chinese Crested, Louie, claimed the beach towel!

Cool water bottle from the
Cesar Millan Foundation.
