The first set of over 20 titles in the Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens titles will be released on Friday, September 4th.

Warby Parker At Home Try On Picks

I am blind as a bat. If I take out my contacts, the world becomes a blur and I stumble around my house, running into things, and stepping on the cat. I've worn some type of vision correction since I was around 5.  (I pray every day my kids don't end up with my eyesight and inherited their dad's 20/20 vision instead.) My prescription gets worse at almost every check-up, even though they claim it will plateau at some point. Liars. This means glasses and contacts are my life.

Watch With Me: AFI’s Top 100 Movies #FDM100Films

Even though I try to act like I don't like bucket lists, I totally have one. It includes such gems as "See a game at every MLB ballpark" and "climb all of the peaks in the Adirondacks." I've recently added "attend the red carpet premiere of The Force Awakens" because you guys? It's on my birthday. It also includes watching every movie on the original American Film Institute Top 100 Greatest American Movies list. (There's a 10th anniversary edition as well, but I'm not a fan of some of the changes that were made between the two lists.) I've seen a vast majority of the films: 71 out of … [Read More...]
