Some Clowns Take Hours To Text Back. They Ain’t Groot! He Hits Me Up Pronto!

text first

I can’t say that Groot was my favorite character in that stellar opus ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy,’ but I’d love to have him as a friend. I imagine he’d be a fantastic listener. Reaching out to the happening sapling would be easy as pie. He could nod in understanding, give my shoulder a good pat and respond with kind eyes.

In a perfect world, cell phone towers would sprout from the moon and bridge signals across planets, allowing me to give him a shout with no dropped calls! I could text him a simple, “hey buddy!” whenever I felt like it and he’d immediately respond back with an epic: “I am Groot.” In fact, he just did. (more…)

Ever since Michael J. Fox made fools of us all and claimed in an ABC network special coinciding with the release of Back to the Future II that scientists were working on developing an actual hoverboard as seen in the film, it’s been difficult for me to trust anyone. However, the folks behind the film are looking to rectify Fox’s lies (okay, that might be a bit harsh) and make my 10-year-old heart sing, along with everyone else with a fondness for the time-hopping trilogy of movies. They’re still rolling out a feet-related product, just not one that flies. (more…)
