  3. An Adventure to the California Science Center & Shuttle Endeavour

    Continuing our fun Memorial Day, Allison and I went to visit the California Science Center to see the Space Shuttle Endeavour. We arrived about three hours before our appointment for the Shuttle, so we decided to explore the rest of the museum

    The Museum

    Since we were super early we killed some time in the museum itself.

  4. Driving in Los Angeles

    I love driving, and I love driving with my wife. One of our favorite things is to just go for a drive and see places we’ve never visited before.

  5. An Adventure to Griffith Park

    Happy friday!

    We were looking for a fun activity to take up our Memorial Day. I also wanted to go somewhere and take some cool photos. We decided on Griffith Park because I had seen this post about the old Los Angeles Zoo. We got up at the crack of dawn (6:30), got some Starbucks and attempted to find the trail. Following the directions we managed to make our way most of the way up the mountain, but the trail became super hard and an almost vertical climb. So we decided to head back down to check out the ruins of the old zoo.

    We got in some great exercise and had a blast doing it.

    Here are some pictures from the trip:

  6. Getting Grub at the Granada Hills Grubfest

    Hello friends, Allison and I went to the Granada Hills Grubfest this last friday, come on the adventure with us.

    Granada Hills Grubfest Short

    The Grubfest happens every wednesday and friday from 5:30-10:00pm on Chatsworth Ave, from Zelzah to White Oak. We arrived super early and scoped out the area.

    Cousins Maine Lobster

    We started our dining experience with a lobster roll from Cousins Maine Lobster. Allison and I are avid watchers of the television show Shark Tank and we saw this particular truck on the show. We just had to try the rolls. THEY WERE AMAZING! However they were essentially two bites, needless to say we were still hungry!

    Tornado Potato

    After chowing down on the two bite roll, we ventured across the street and acquired a Tornado Potato. It’s essentially a giant twirly potato chip.

    Be Waffle

    For dessert Allison and I had spied a Belgian Waffle truck. Mine was covered with Belgian Chocolate, Bananas, and Whipped Cream. The Waffle was perfect. The outside of the waffle was nice and crunchy while the interior was soft and warm.

  7. Photo Sesh With the Wife

    The Weirdest part of Allison’s and I’s relationship is that we don’t have that many pictures of us together. We have pictures of her, and pictures of me, but there aren’t many of us together. Well the benefit of Taylor having a Fiancé who likes taking pictures is that we can finally rectify that. While we were in florida we did a little photo Sesh with awesome photography by Niana Marie. Enjoy.

  8. The Ben Affleck Batman Suit - With Color

    So as most of you are aware, Zack Synder released a photo of the Ben Affleck Batman Suit on twitter. It has been meted and people have added some color to it. I decided to try my hand at coloring the photo as well.

    The Ben Affleck Batman Suit – Original

    Ben Affleck Batman Suit Original

    Here are my two variations.

    Blue Batfleck

    Ben Affleck Batman Suit Blue

    Brown Leathery Batfleck

    Ben Affleck Batman Suit Brown

    I really think Ben Affleck will do a great Job as batman. I mean, the stuff where he’s in the suit, anyone can do. The key to playing Batman in a movie is the Bruce Wayne aspect, which I think Mr. Affleck will nail.

  9. It Finally Happened, My Little Brother Got Engaged to Be Married

    Hell must be freezing over somewhere. Why? Because my little brother avoided getting bored with a girl long enough to want to marry her. She is an awesome addition to our family and I am happy to welcome her to the Clements Clan. Even though Taylor doesn’t like to have his picture taken they make a very photogenic couple.

  10. I Finally Got to Actually See the School Taylor Graduated From

    So the whole purpose of this trip was to go and see my little brother Taylor walk across the stage and get his degree. The graduation was at a large church off campus so we didn’t actually get to see his school until sunday. It was awesome walking around the campus that Taylor spent so much of the last four years at. The buildings all feel new and pristine. I was getting a little jealous, but then I remembered he went to school in Florida, so that green monster was put back in it’s cage.

  11. Lunch in Lakeland

    Lunch

    Sunday afternoon, we gathered the remaining Clements Clan and headed to Harry’s, a delicous local resturant. I had a classec Po’ Boy Sandwich with fried Catfish. As an appetizer I ordered a massive plate of Deep Fried Pickles I ate pretty much all of them.

    After lunch, we decided to walk around downtown Lakeland and see some of the shops. This being the south on a Sunday. Nothing was open. So we headed down to the lake and walked around. I was a wonderful sunny day and we had a blast. We finally headed back to the hotel because we were a little sick of being assaulted by the insane amount of Lovebugs.

  12. Dear Community: You Will Be Missed or Community is Cancelled and I’m Sad

    Community is Cancelled!

    Community is Cancelled

    My wife text me that this afternoon after the news was announced today that one of my favorite shows NBC’s Community would not be picked up for a 6th Season.

    I am saddened by the news not just because I have a vacant slot on Thursday Night Prime Time, but because I have a connection with this show.

    The darkest timeline has happened, Community is cancelled.

    Let’s go back to Spring of 2009, the new slate of shows had been announced and Hulu Plus wasn’t a thing. I was working for Azusa Pacific University Media Services. A large portion of my job was data entry, and since we had dual monitors I would often pull up the web version of Hulu and watch shows while I worked.

    The initial premise of Community was intriguing, a sleaze bag lawyer has to go back to Community College because he didn’t actually get a real Bachelors Degree from a real School.

    I watched it.

    I liked it.

    I didn’t think much of it aftewards.

    Later, while sitting in my apartment with the three other dudes I lived with. One of my roommates brother, Kyle who worked at the school and would use our shower from time to time, asked if I had seen the Community Pilot.

    I said that I did and I liked it, but I didn’t think it would last.

    Kyle asked why?

    Well, I really enjoyed the premise, but I think it’s too smart for TV. It was witty, nerdy, meta and very quick. I didn’t think there would be a place for smart humor on TV. I would later be almost proven right when the continuity of the show would come into question because they didn’t sell enough tide. As I talked with Kyle, I started to realize I really like this weird show.

    The rest of my friend group slowly started watching it and it would occasionally show up in our group conversations. We liked it, but we weren’t fanatical about it.

    Then the Chicken Tenders episode happened.

    Now, we have to go on another Nolanesque time jump to 2007-2008. We were all freshman and our friendships hadn’t been fully gelled and formed. At the time, on campus food at APU was mediocre at best.

    Except for wednesdays.

    Wednesday was chicken tender day in the Cougar Den (The APU east campus grill). We went, every single wednesday to get our hands on the pre-packaged, deep fried poultry. Every week, I would get off class/work and head back to my dorm. Inevitably, someone would pose the question “Chicken Tenders?”

    We would immediately drop what we were doing (Guitar Hero, it was always Guitar Hero) and head to the Den.

    Back to 2009.

    That episode reminded all of us of that first collegiate year. As soon as it was up on Hulu text messages started flying with demands that we watch the episode.

    Community smashed into our conversations and became a constant discussion topic. Even today on the not often enough occasions that we are all together the phrase, “Have you watched Community?” will be uttered.

    This show was one of the major bonding points of my friend groups. Now that Community is cancelled, I am sad.

    I am sad that NBC has chosen to abandon a show that has a large audience, granted that audience is primarily online and not eligible for Nielson ratings (I cannot for the life of me figure out why we are still using that antiquated system).

    What I think That Dan Harmon and the Folks a Sony should do is go ahead and film a sixth season. Then for distribution, either stream it online, or just make it available as a download behind a pay wall.

    I own all of the seasons on DVD and still stream them from Hulu, primarily for the convenience of it. I know I would pay for that.

    But in all reality, well get a Sixth Season of Community when we get a second season of Firefly.

    Ok, enough bargaining. Let’s skip that whole depression thing and move on to accepting the fact that we live in a world where Community is Cancelled.

    Community, thank you for 5 seasons of, funny, weird, intriguing television. You will be missed and I will still watch you on DVD and Hulu. You had a great run.

  13. Stop. Look. It’s a Lake in Lakeland.

    After hitting up Access Church (The Church that Taylor and Niana serve at) on sunday morning we were heading back to pick up my wonderful grandparents we stopped at one of the many lakes in Lakeland and hung out with just the four of us kids. I snapped a few pictures and Viola! Instant blog post.

    BAM.

  14. Ep: 14 - The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Review - Spoilers Abound

    Here is my review of The Amazing Spider-Man 2

    spiderman2_1814

    Hey myke?

    Yeah?

    So, you saw The Amazing Spider-Man 2 this weekend?

    Yup!

    What did you think?

    I LOVED IT!

    Here’s Why!

    Enough Intro, Review It

    Ok, so let me start right off the bat with a disclaimer, there will be spoilers in this review/reflection. It’s impossible to talk about the most important scene, and what made me love this movie, without giving one of those cheesy “You’ll have to watch the movie to find out”  cop out’s that most reviewers do. Also Spoilers don’t actually spoil the movie, instead they actually enhance your experience [source]. Think about it, once you know what’s going to happen you can sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.

    Now that we have that out of the way, let’s look at the basic plot of the movie.

    We open on what appears to be a veteran Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) comfortably swinging around New York City thwarting a plutonium (it’s what makes nuclear bombs so deadly) heist, leading to the arrest of Aleksei Sytsevich (Paul Giamatti) who will later come back at the end of the film as Spider-Man’s villain The Rhino. This sequence is a great opening because it shows us that Spider-Man is well into his career, a parallel to this would be the opening Batman scene in The Dark Knight. 

    Peter Parker has to rush from the scene to make his High School graduation and cuteness between him and Gwen Stacy ensue. However Peter is extremely hesitant to interact with the rest of the Stacy family. Primarily because he sees dead people. Well person to be exact. He sees visions of Captain George Stacy (Denis Leary), primarily because he made a promise to the dying Captain to stay away from Gwen in the last film.

    A little later, we are introduced to Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) the super creepy kid from Chronicle. He discovers that he has a genetic disease that will kill him, oh and it killed his father. Harry becomes the CEO of OsCorp and discovers that Spider-Man’s blood could cure him. Spider-Man says no. Anger ensues. Harry does some reckless things and gets kicked out of OsCorp.

    Meanwhile in The Amazing Spider-Man 2

    Max Dillon (Jamie Fox) they typical loner/loser/definitely going to be a villain later in the movie, experiences calamity. While trying to fix some broken electrical thingy, he is zapped and falls into a pit of electric eels and get’s zapped to death, or did he…..?

    NOPE.

    He’s alive and has super powers! Yay comics!

    Upon waking up and not knowing a single thing that happened to him, he wanders into the city and goes on a rampage and gets even more powerful. Fight scene ensues! Spider-Man uses douse with Fire Hose, its super successful! Yay! Max is locked up forever! Or is he….?

    NOPE! But we’ll get to that later.

    amazing-spider-man-2-trailer-electro

    Also Meanwhile in The Amazing Spider-Man 2

    Paker and Stacy break up :( this is the sad part of the movie. Spider-Man is sad and rooftop stalks Gwen while delving deeper into the mystery of his father’s disappearance. He discovers a super awesome lair in an abandoned subway tunnel. He watches a video from his father and thinks it’s it’s pretty cool.

    After some sad montages Gwen calls Spidey and arranges a meet up. She then friend zones him pretty hard, informing Peter that she’s going to go to Oxford and do some super smart stuff or something like that.

    Peter is sad. He fights Max Dillon and then eventually gets the girl back.

    The-Amazing-Spider-Man-2-Peter-and-Gwen-EW

    No longer Meanwhile in The Amazing Spider-Man 2

    Harry breaks Max, or Electro as he is now calling himself out of prison and breaks into OsCorp. He injects himself with some old Spider Venom and it almost kills him. He climbs into a sweet suit that saves his life. He gains some crazy strength, however there is a side effect. The venom disfigures him and turns him green, he also looks like a Goblin, I wonder what his villain name will be….?

    Electro goes on another rampage and Spidey leaps into action, Gwen follows behind after being strictly told not too, because Peter is worried that he will get her killed. Hmmm?

    Super Epic fight scene occurs and they defeat Electro!

    Audience applauds!

    But wait, oh no, that greenish goblin looking dude (still not sure what to call him) comes racing in and attacks Spidey and Gwen.

    OH NO!

    Dane DeHaan

    FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!

    Goblin dude picks up Gwen and drops her. Spidey Shoots! It’s good, he caught her. More fighting. Zoom in on the web. It gets caught in the gears of the giant clock they are in.

    SNAP!

    Slow-mo falling.

    Spidey Shoots again. The web wraps around Gwens waist, it goes taught.

    SNAP.

    The theater goes silent, tears well.

    Spider-Man caught her, but it broke her back.

    Why this Scene Makes the Movie

    I’m not going to focus on all the stunning visuals, witty banter, and deep integration into the Spider-Man mythos that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 features. The reason is that I can’t. All of those things are trumped by this one scene.

    At the end of The Amazing Spider-Man (The first film) Peter makes a promise that he can’t keep. He can’t keep Gwen safe, it’s not about whether or not he can stay away from her. This scene pulled and adapted from The Night Gwen Stacy Died is integral to the character of Spider-Man it’s like when Uncle Ben died. It’s a defining moment in his history.

    I loved that they went there, not that I’m death happy. I loved that in a summer blockbuster they had the guts to show such an emotional topic, the death of a loved one. I was sitting the in theater crying, I was sad. Everything leading up to this point was full of real honest love. Andrew Garfield’s performance when he mourns Gwen and when he sits at her grave for days is beautiful, raw and powerful.

    This ending also shows the fortitude of Spider-Man. After Gwen’s death Pete puts the mask down. It’s only after an inspiring pep talk from Aunt May (Sally Field) that he dons the mask again. I like this Peter Parker.

    So we’ve been dazzled by special effects, tickled by witty banter and brought to an emotional low with the death of a major character we are raw and primed for the most heart warming moment of the whole movie.

    Harry Osborn, healing in prison consults with Gustav Fiers (Louis Cancelmi) and begins to assemble what I think is The Sinister Six. He suggests recruiting Paul Giamatti to the team. 

    The-Amazing-Spider-Man-2-wallpapers-4

    The next scene, Giamatti, in a sweet robotic Rhino suit is rampaging through New York. Bookending the movie. A young boy, dressed as spiderman sans mask looks on as The Rhino enters a stand off with the NYPD. The young boy, inspired by Spider-Man breaks past the barrier and is the lone person to stand up to the Villain.

    Horrified the crowd and the boy’s mother look on, but no one moves to intervene. The young Spidey puts on his mask and prepares to do battle.

    From off screen,

    “Hey Spider-Man”

    GASP!

    It’s the real Spider-Man!

    tasm21

    He’s Back!

    Credits!

    Over all I give The Amazing Spider-Man 2 4.5 out of 5 starts and definitely recommend seeing it in theaters.

    The Outfit

    So I was looking super fly for church with my sweet shirt, shorts and shoes from Old Navy. The Bright yellow sunglasses are from Target and the socks, which I think really made the outfit, even though my mother laughed at them, are from Gap.
