SyFy's Face Off

Just received some horrible news, Face Off is going to be canceled. We are extremely upset about this. If you love Face Off, please go to this link and sign the petition. Keep it trending.

About ten years ago when my daughter was little, she was afraid of monster movies. Then I came across a show on SYFY called “Face Off”. It’s a “...competition/elimination series, special effects makeup artists participate in elaborate challenges for a grand prize and the honor of being Hollywood’s next great effects artist.” (

I decided we should watch this show together in hopes to show my daughter the movie monsters are just a man in mask, and I was hoping she would love these films like I do. This has worked, plus I’ve also grown more of an appreciation for the movies after learning the hard work that goes into them. My daughter now not only loves the movies, but she it began her love of art.

McKenzie Westmore is the host. She’s kinda cool. Her father, Michael Westmore, has an amazing career in the makeup effects industry and is mostly popular for his work on “Star Trek”. He is now the contestants’ mentor.

Glenn Hetrick “found his first foothold in Hollywood at Optic Nerve Studios as a designer, fabricator, sculptor and painter on several seasons of Buffy, Angel, X-Files, Freaky Links, Babylon 5 and Roswell, among others.” (

Glenn and Neville are currently working together on projects like “Star Trek Discovery”. (CBS News Video)   They also have a video on YouTube that’s worth checking out. It was awesome watching them work. (YouTube video) Turns out, I was a fan of Ve, Glenn, and Neville's long before I even heard of them on "Face Off".

The Show
“Face Off” is an amazing show. If you haven’t seen it, what the f---’s wrong with you? My daughter and I just went back and watched all 12 seasons. It was on our cable’s On Demand. Sadly, they won’t return with new shows until next year. I know, I’m bummed. They need to hurry up already. Check out SyFy for reruns.

Adam West passed away

Growing up everyday after school, my brother and I would hurry home to see reruns of the 60’s Batman.

The caped crusader was one of our favorite DC Comic heroes, and he was played by the extremely talented Adam West. Yesterday, Adam West passed away at the age of 88 from Leukemia.
My daughter first experienced Adam West in The Fairly Odd Parents where he played “Catman”. Although, he brought many characters to life. He has portrayed Wild Bill Hitchok and Doc Holiday in the Westerns, as well as appearing on Perry Mason and starring in the Outer Limits.
West was in other DC Comic shows such as The Batman/Tarzan Adventure Hour, Tarzan and the Super 7, Super Friends: The Legendary Super Powers Show, and The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians.

Later West has appeared on News Radio and Murphy Brown. I’ve enjoyed his guest spots on The George Lopez Show and The King of Queens.
Adam West, you will surely be missed.

Death Star moon

During WHBF (local) morning news, news anchors James and Emily were talking about one of Jupiter's moon. Thanks to a giant crater, this moon looks like Star Wars "Death Star". Thought it was too cool not to share.

The Flash returns after Barry Allen has gone back in time so his parents would live again. Unfortunately, this has created a "flashpoint" which majorly messed up the timeline for everyone. He tried to correct it, but that created more problems. Now he has to battle Alchemy and Savitar.
