Could the Knight Rider GPS that gives all commands with the voice of KITT be the coolest thing ever? Yes, it could. $299 is a little steep for a GPS, but the cool factor on this would be worth it.

Carter is a complete ham and will mug for the camera any chance he gets.
I came home the other day and discovered several pictures of “Spider-Man” on the camera. I told Carter that Peter Parker must have borrowed our camera because there were a bunch of pictures of Spider-Man on there.
He just giggled and gave me a “Daddy, you’re silly” look and then said…but I’m Peter Parker.
There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t realize how lucky I am.
Even better than the previous Death Star Lego set, this future set has 360 degrees of play features and comes with a ton of lego mini characters. I’d be scared to see how much this would cost. What do you think? $300?
Legendary creature creator Stan Winston has died. The man responsible for more movie creature than you can imagine has passed away at the age of 62.
Winston won Academy awards for his work on Aliens, Jurassic Park, and Terminator 2. He was also worked on films ranging from The Monster Squad to Iron Man. Just take a look at his IMDB entry.
Be sure to check out Ain’t It Cool News and their tribute to Stan Winston. Over the next few days they’ll be posting various comments from industry people that Stan worked with over the years.
I think this quote from him easily sums up his work
“If I can dazzle myself, I’m pretty sure I can dazzle you.”
In a few years, I will make it to Disney World in Florida for the Star Wars weekend. I can’t wait to take “the boys” (Carter and Riley) when Riley is old enough.
When we visited Disney/MGM last year, Carter wasn’t quite tall enough to ride the Star Wars ride, so we had to make do with the large AT-AT and Speeder Bike on display. We did manage to catch the parade at MGM (which I highly recommend) and the appearance of Darth Vader, R2, and C3-PO were his highlights for the day. A full Star Wars takeover of Disney would be a blast.

While in a Star Wars mood, check out the photos on the Growing Up Star Wars Flickr Photo Pool. Featuring all vintage photos of Star Wars memorabilia, there are lots of photos like the one above. Somewhere in the Duncan archives, there’s a photo me wearing that Yoda costume.
