Veggie Pirate Movie – Hits the Treasure!

As “live blogged” in my last post, I was fortunate to be able to attend an advanced screening of the new Veggie Pirate Movie. Since Kidology has volunteered to be a promotional partner (we do not accept paid advertising) I was just a little nervous… what if I don’t like it? (not that this was likely coming from Big Idea, but it’s our first time being an official promotional sponsor, so positivity is kinda assumed.) Well, not only can I rest at ease – you can too! THE MOVIE IS FANTASTIC! And exceeded even my high expectations! Any concerns of it feeling too long (“half an hour” is part of the Veggie theme song!) or missing the mark of appealing to a wide range of ages quickly evaporated. Steve Tanner and I with our shirts we won answering movie trivia at the end! I’m happy to let you know that the movie hit all the marks for me! Great for kids! Humor for adults too Great message MANY teachable points Visually stunning Creative and fast paced With the recent hit of “other other Pirate movies” – I wondered if it would feel like the thrill of pirates had faded. (They …

HOIST THE SAILS! IT’S THE MOVIE YOU’VE BEEN WAITING FOR! THE VEGGIE PIRATE MOVIE IS COMING JAN. 11! Here is the trailer: In case you are wondering why our logo is on the trailer above, Kidology is a promotional partner for the film.

We helping to spread the word about the film via Kidology.org, for now with a forum discussion where you can discuss the upcoming Veggie Movie!

We really excited to be having a Kidology Forum Q&A with Phil Vischer and Mike Nawrocki in November, so STAY TUNED FOR THAT! You’ll not want to miss a chance to interact with the creators of VeggieTales right on Kidology.org! I’m excited because I am going to the PREVIEW SHOWING TOMORROW NIGHT here in Chicagoland! Maybe I’ll take Pirate Lukie along? 250/32 yikes, I’d better get busy!

Yes, I waited in line for an OS

Yes, it’s true. I waited in line for an operating system. But then again, this was not just any operating system… it is an Apple Operating System, something truly worth looking forward to, every time. Originally, I wasn’t going to wait in line for Leopard like I did for my iPhone, but as it turned out, I was doing training our youngest Kidology Team Member and decided it would be fun to do with him, so we went and got in line! Chad and Karl – Mac Nerds, and Proud of it! We got in line with several hundred other Mac fanatics… many busy on their iPhones, and were happy to see we were close enough to get the free t-shirt! Me with my free Apple Mac T-Shirt! The Apple Store employees are a hoot. Literally! They cheered for each group of 10 that were allowed in forming two lines that you passed through to enter. You kinda felt like Moses walking through the Red Sea. The enthusiasm was a little silly – but it made it a fun event. Come, on! Who would cheer for the lastest version of Windows… that’s more like, “Well, OK, I guess I should …

What makes a good BLOG?

I get asked a LOT for advice on blogs – how to start one – what to put on them – how to add pictures – what to say – how to promote – etc. I’m not going to answer any of those questions here! Instead, I’d like to suggest the First Question any blogger should answer. Before I go on, let me start by saying I do NOT consider myself an expert on blogging – nor to I think my blog lives up to my own suggestions listed below. But I have been bloggin’ for 32 consistant months, which makes my blog rare and reading blogs since 2002. In fact, I was making blog posts since before there were blogs! (sample, sample, & sample) Someone please buy me this shirt! As one noted pessimist once stated, “The Blogosphere is exploding- like a self-replicating supervirus bursting with mundane observations, bad poetry, and generously misrepresentative photos. Never have so many people with so little to say said so much to so few.” – Dr. E. L. Kersten, Founder – Despair, Inc. O.K. – here is the “BIG QUESTION” I ask anyone who asks me any question about blogging – the most …
