Finally started up our own podcast!
If you are looking for a podcast with cheesy music intros and fake advertisements and are tired of listening to professional sounding people who actually know what they’re talking about then I have a podcast for you!!
Come join Caliph Ford, Ramon Rodriguez and myself as we discuss all types of nerd things like Star Wars, the DC Universe and much more.
I recently had the opportunity to check out a fantastic service for young readers called PUT ME IN THE STORY. The concept is that parents can visit http://www.PutMeInTheStory.com and after navigating a very easy to use system, they can create a personalized story books for their children starring some of the coolest licensed characters that kids know and love.
To my 3 yr old son’s (and my own) happiness, the great folks over at PUT ME IN THE STORY allowed me to make him two of their STAR WARS books which have gone on to become a part of his daily life. The two stories, STAR WARS: THE FORCE INSIDE and STAR WARS REBELS: BATTLE PLANS FROM DARTH VADER are awesome books for young fans of the series and both are fun way for them to learn more about their favorite heroes and villains while also seeing how and where they would fit into the STAR WARS universe.
Though my 3yr old is still currently in the process of learning exactly how to read, it in no way stops his passion for enjoying story time and having fun with some of his favorite books. Thankfully having the added option of him being able to see himself and his name included on the same pages as many of his favorite STAR WARS characters made him absolutely crazy for both books and he is constantly asking me to re-read them both to him and help him take the quizzes that determine if he leans more the the lighted or the dark. Currently he is way to happy about being a Sith….His mother and I are working on that one.
I can’t say enough good things about the PUT ME IN THE STORY books as they are a fun personalized way to share the joy of reading with your children at any age. In a time when toy prices have skyrocketed and every video game comes with costly DLC add ons that can run a parent into spending hundreds of dollars it’s nice to see a truly unique gift be available for a decent price. Each book will run you $29.99 – $39.99 but that does include all of the customization. On top of that PUT ME IN THE STORY also provided me with a special promo code to share that can be used right now that will give you half off any of the personalized STAR WARS books.
If you have kids who are STAR WARS fans, this is a no brainer and an absolutely wonderful way to give your kids a special gift that goes way beyond the usually toys or games.

After the very costly Force Friday that will probably shave a few years off of my children’s college fund, I thought I was all STAR WARS’d out. I was wrong.
Unfortunately for my wallet and my soul, the unholy combination of Funko and Star Wars have come together to create its own subscription box in an attempt to become the single most addictive thing fans have seen in years. For the price of $25 every other month, subscribers will receive $50 worth of exclusive Star Wars goodies, including special T-Shirts and of course, rare Funko Pop figures. For an upfront yearly fee of $150 ($25 x 6 boxes) you’ll also snag a special annual reward once your first year is done.
Subscription boxes have been all the rage amongst fans for the past few years and have provided some pretty cool exclusives to chase after. With the launch of this Star Wars themed one it looks like we may see the most popular one to date, especially with the new film scheduled to hit theaters on December 18th.
You can check out all the details on the Smuggler’s Bounty signup page and you can believe I’ll be unboxing the first one when it arrives in November!
