My husband is a huge KISS fan. I’ve been to a concert with him to see them and he has been to like 30 of their concerts. So when we bought the Scooby-Doo tv-episode which included music from KISS complete with KISS cartoon characters taking stage, he was quite amused. My kids just wanted to know what all the makeup was about. Scooby-Doo being Halloween-ish, meant for an easy explanation. The weird band makeup is because they are in “character” but the movie was good. The kids love mysteries. I like the crop circle angle in this episode and we were all curious to see how the fire breathing ghosts panned out. I’ll always prefer the Scooby shows of the 70s though. Although I admit I’m okay with the Scooby Gang hanging around for my kids to enjoy.
BUT NOW there is an entire Scooby-Doo and KISS movie to watch (79 minutes of creepiness)! It was released digitally on July 10, 2015, and was released on DVD and Blu-ray on July 21.

I remember running around catching lightning bugs and capturing frogs when I was little. My kids like to do this as well and it’s fun seeing them outside exploring. Except of course when Finn then comes in covered with mosquito bites. For his birthday my brother gave him a backyard exploring kit and it was one of the first things he opened and tried out. I have a picture of him looking with a magnifying glass out into our garden bed. Finn has always been an explorer, the photo on this post is from his early explorer days in 2012 when he was three years old.
I bet your kiddos have the same adventurous tendencies and so we’re offering to our readers a Backyard Explorers Kit from Orkin.

I am a Veronica Mars fan and I’m not the only one. It’s incredibly awesome though that thanks to a historic crowdfunding campaign, this is the first movie made BY FANS. In fact, fans raised $5 million dollars to get this movie produced and sent to the big screens. Incredible!
Not only did fans raise the money but somehow the amazing Rob Thomas is who was picked to produce the flick! I think this just goes to show how powerful us everyday folk can really be. Very cool!
The premise of the movie is as follows:
“On the eve of graduating law school, Veronica Mars has put Neptune and her amateur sleuthing days behind her. While interviewing at high-end New York law firms, Veronica Mars gets a call from her ex-boyfriend Logan who has been accused of murder. Veronica heads back to Neptune just to help Logan find an attorney, but when things don’t seem right with how Logan’s case is perceived and handled, Veronica finds herself being pulled back into a life she thought she had left behind.”

Thank you to Warner Bros. who is supplying these materials to promote their awesome Veronica Mars series/movie.
On February 11, 2014 the BluRay edition of the movie DIANA will be released. One lucky scrink.com reader will win a copy of the movie!
Sixteen years after her sudden death, acclaimed director Oliver Hirschbiegel (the Oscar®-nominated Downfall) explores Diana’s secret love affair with Pakistani heart surgeon Hasnat Khan (NAVEEN ANDREWS, “Lost,” The English Patient), the human complications of which reveal the Princess’s climactic days in a compelling new light. Hirschbiegel directed from a screenplay by award-winning playwright Stephen Jeffreys, inspired by the book Diana: Her Last Love by Kate Snell, which was in turn drawn from extensive interviews with close friends and confidantes. The result is a window into the tumultuous, change-filled period from 1995-1997, in the wake of Diana’s shattering divorce from Prince Charles, and at the moment when she stood on the cusp of a different life, evolving into a global humanitarian, a master of maneuvering fame and becoming her own woman.
The Blu-ray also includes exclusive bonus interviews with the cast and crew, as well as a 16-page DIANA Fashion Photo Booklet, which looks at how the filmmakers captured Diana’s iconic fashion style.

‘Tis the season to get really excited about free stuff, right?
So this giveaway is from Yellow Pages. I don’t know if you’re like me but I rarely use the Yellow Pages in book form anymore because well I can more easily look it up online or on my phone. The folks at Yellow Pages know this is the fact of the matter and therefore they have created a brand new YPMobile app. The best part of the app is that now I can load it and find what I need instead of scrolling through the tiny search screen in a mobile web browser. But the YPMobile app does more than look up phone numbers for you, it also looks up directions and even gas prices. It also provides a platform to check out ratings of places which is useful.
As far as apps go it is currently very well received. Most apps end up getting destroyed in star ratings at the Apple Store but this app has received 4.5 stars!
Do not be fooled by your assumptions of Yellow Pages because they are definitely not the great big book we now let our kids sit on if they are too short. The YPMobile app and the YPMobile website are a one-stop useful tool and resource that are perfect to use, especially this holiday season when our brains are scattered and schedules are crazy.
