American: The Bill Hicks Story DVD Review!

Image
American: The Bill Hicks Story~ Brings to life the amazing true story of one of modern culture’s most iconic figures. Much more than just a comedian, Bill Hicks has become an inspiration to millions around the world. As a rebellious teenager, he discovered that comedy was a way to break all the rules, but then he found it could also open people’s minds. Bill’s comedy challenged the injustices of life head on, but his uncompromising approach met with conflict in America and it was instead on the international stage where he found fame. In 1993, on the verge of wider success, Bill fell ill with terminal cancer, but his timeless material has lived on, revered by comedians and audiences alike as the man who changed comedy forever. Taking documentary to a new level, American uses interviews, archive footage including many unseen performances, and stunning animation to bring Bill’s inspiring story to life, told for the first time by those that knew him best.
This documentary was great.It was …

My grandchildren watch the Dinosaur Train show on PBS all the time. So~I was super happy to hear that we were going to be able to review the new game~
~Dinosaur Train All Aboard~  Hop on the Dinosaur Train and follow the path through the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. Mr. Conductor tells how many spaces you can move.Players will choose a character~Buddy, Tiny, Shiny, Don, Cory, Tank or Mr. Conductor.Then they try to move the fastest along the tracks. Landing on pocket watch spaces moves you closer to finish, but crossing spaces move you back. Be the first player to reach nest and win.  This game was so much fun! My grandchildren really liked that they could pick their own character.  Because it is so easy to play to they wanted me to let them play on their own after only one game. I liked the vibrant colors on here and that it teaches the kids to share~count and take turns. I love it when I can sneak games in like this as they are having so much fun that they don't …
