BYU of U.....

So, I come from a family whose dad's side is completely obsessed with sports, which is a great thing, I think. My mom's side of the family had more of the performing and fine arts background, which is where I must get my passion for those things from.

I seriously live my life not by the change of the seasons from Winter to Spring, Spring to Summer, Summer to Fall, and Fall to Winter.  I live it like, Okay, in September we get NCAA and NFL Football and MLB and MLBB are finishing up., October we get NCAA and NBA basketball, in January we lose NCAA football, but still have everything else. February brings NFL to an end. March ends NCAA basketball, and April we get MLB and MLBB baseball back. Live, rinse, repeat.

We have our favorite teams from every sporting team, but there are some contradictions with other people we love to get into sports with. My favorite spectator sport is college football. In Utah it's hard because most people want you to be a BYU fan or a Utah fan, but not of both.

While growing up, I didn't have the extreme hatred for Utah that three out of my four best friends did, lol, but still didn't hate Utah as much. My dad coached sports for a high school. My dad knows tons of stats of players I've never heard of. Just the other night we were at a Bees baseball game and he was telling me all of the players who were in the majors that are now playing in the minors, and where they were from and everything. I love that about my dad. Anyway, my dad coached football with his best friend, who actually played for Utah when he was in college. He is a huge Ute fan and can't stand BYU.  My brother in law, yeah, huge Utah fan. I have lived most of my life surrounded by fans of both teams.

So, in my family, growing up, my family would cheer for both teams. If one team had more at stake in their season, that would decide who was rooted for. I actually had BYU football season tickets growing up. Every once in a while I would go with my dad to see a Utah game, which I enjoyed, but leaned more to the blue than the red.

Now that I am my age, I love college football so much, just as much as I always have, but with Utah joining the Pac 12, and the "Holy War" rival game is more of a thing of the past, besides certain seasons, it is a lot easier to be fans of both. I feel that I love college football so much that I feel happy and excited to root for both teams equally.

I want to apologize to Kevin, Spencer, and Kendall for being able to sit on the fence and be fair about it. I love the passions we all have for our teams. Darin, I can finally say that I can now root with as much enthusiasm as you have for Utah. I always cheered for them until they played BYU, but years of learning to be a Utah fan from my brother in law and the Brady family has molded me into a perfect fence-sitter. In the future for "Holy War" games, I will be rooting for who has most at stake. I am kind of a little frustrated at both teams. While I feel that Utah will get better over time playing in the Pac 12, I struggle to get behind Bronco. I don't care for his coaching. I remember people wearing Fire Crowton shirts at BYU games, but honestly, I think that I would rather have him back in some respects. My dad and I think that a head coach should worry about the team as a whole, and delegate someone to take over as the defensive coordinator. The defense seems to suffer some, and the rest of the team doesn't get as much time with the head coach that they should. Utah is in a conference with big teams with big money, and though they have struggled a little bit, I think that in time they will be able to work up the ranks. 

So with me being totally excited about College Football starting this coming week, here we go!

Good Luck BYU of U.

The Planetarium and Baseball....

Sometimes being a dad is hard. My dad is probably the greatest person I know, and now that I have a little boy of my own, my appreciation for my dad has gotten deeper. My dad just retired from being a high school English teacher for 35 years. I loved going to Cyprus where my dad taught and I was happy that I got to share a lot of great times together growing up.

My dad isn't made out of money, but the way my sisters and I were raised, we never felt like we were going without. There are things in my life that I look back on and realize that my dad was there and loves me unconditionally. When I was in elementary school and middle school, I was considered a nerd. I got beat up from time to time and was teased well beyond what normal kids get teased.

I remember in the early to mid 1990s, one of the fashion trends going around were kids wearing Starter Sports Coats. A lot of kids at school had them from all different teams and even sports. NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL and NCAA. I remember my dad coming to me and said that if I helped him do some stuff around the house that he would get me a Starter jacket. They were expensive too. Like, between $90.00 to $120.00. We went to The Pro Image at the mall which is what Fanzz used to be called back in the day. We were looking at the jackets and we spotted a Salt Lake Buzz Starter Jacket. Franklin Quest Park, now Smiths Ballpark, opened in 1994 and my dad took me and my four best friends, Kevin, Darin, Kendall and Spencer to see a game. The team started out as The Buzz, but got threatening letters from Georgia Tech, since they refer to their mascot as "The Buzz" and that people were buying Salt Lake stuff instead of theirs. Anyway, that happened after a few years. The team changed from The Buzz to the Salt Lake Stingers, and after a few seasons, Larry Miller bought the team and renamed them the Bees, since a team way back in the middle of the 20th century that played in Salt Lake was called The Bees.

Anyway, we saw the jacket. My dad played college baseball and had a short stint on a minor league team. We love baseball in our family. I remember my dad telling me how awesome the jacket was and I agreed. We went home with a $95.00 Starter jacket, and I couldn't wait to wear it to school the next day. I went to school feeling excited. When I got there, I started walking down the halls, and the kids started making fun of me as usual, except they were all bragging that I was stupid to get a Buzz jacket. They were teasing me about this jacket that I loved not just because it was an expensive jacket, but because of the emotions of love and gratitude, and now a lifetime memory of my dad showing his unconditional love and pride in me. I still have that jacket today. I don't wear it. I wore it out to a few April games the following season when it was still cold in the evening. I got some great comments from strangers about the jacket. I didn't wear it too much, not because of the teasing I got for it at school, but because when I look at that jacket, my heart feels full and heavy. My dad loved me and he thought it was so neat, and I did too.

Sometimes I have a nightmare or hear a news story where people in my life have died or people around me in general. I can't help but wonder sometimes how much more time I have with my dad on this earth. He isn't too old, but when I look back on pictures or family videos, he has changed. I still feel like that four year old little boy who dressed as Superman, but even superman had an amazing dad to teach him how the world works and how to live your life the best you can. His love, kindness and example won't leave me when he finally does go. He will live on in my heart and thoughts, and hopefully I will be able to pass that down to Elliot and have my dad's legacy live on from generation to generation because I made it a point of him sticking with me.

So every time I have Elliot over, I try to do something fun with him. I don't have a lot of money, but I try to do things with him that show him how much I love him and how much I love my time with him. This past Saturday, I took Elliot to the Clark Planetarium at the Gateway Mall. I hadn't been there for a few years and they had some new, well, new to me, exhibits. I thought we would only be in there for half an hour tops. We spent three hours there between playing with the exhibits over and over again and trying to decide on what toy or treat we should get from the science toy store there in the planetarium. We were going to buy astronaut ice cream, but for a dollar more we found a fun kit with some Mentos candy with a pipe and stopper that you screw onto the top of a two litter bottle of Diet Coke, put the Mentos in with the stopper plugged up, and then release the stopper. The Coke shoots up over 25 feet high. It's a really fun toy. Anyway, here is a picture of Elliot playing on the Moon.

I have a really great friend who works for the Salt Lake Bees. We were in a play together, and so whenever we want to go down to a Bees game, he comps us a few tickets. So, earlier this evening My dad, Elliot and I went to the Bees game. It was great weather, except for the rain in the 9th inning. We had a bunch of $1.00 hot dogs. It was great. I got some fun pictures here.

I hope that one day Elliot will feel the same way I do about my dad, but with me. I want him to know that I don't have a lot, but I have a lot to give where it counts. I want him to experience as much of life as a person can have, especially while still being a kid. I hope that that lasts a long time. The best part is, I don't think I have grown up much. I am a big kid as well. I love learning and exploring new things all the time. My friend Stephen probably knows that more than anyone, but it's okay because Stephen is where I learn a lot about things like comic books and Anime. Point is, both of us have a hard time finding girls to date! (Don't curse me, Stephen, I still have your Scott Pilgrim graphic novels, so you need me if you ever want those things back!).

Anyway, I hope that you all love your family members. If not, try to maybe not thing about how much you disagree with them and pray or wish good things for them. My dad is the best. I hope I can be that way for Elliot, and I hope and pray that Elliot will be that way for my grand kids. Now there is a scary thought.

We're Going To Las Vegas??? No? Oh Crud, We Are Going To See Sin City???

Tomorrow morning is the day for my critic screening of Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. I have been dreading it since the last Sin City. I went against my better judgement to see it. What I saw and felt during the film was dirty and uncomfortable. I know some people out there will not agree with me at all with this blog, but I have my opinion and feelings, and as a critic am inclined to share them.

I love comic book and graphic novel films. I grew up loving comic books and superheroes. Now that I am older, I have found comics and graphic novels that are written more for late teens and adults. Some of them are great to read. Some of them even better than their movies, like most books. However, when it comes to comic book writer, Frank Miller, he knows how to hold readers captive with the help of his artists who ink some incredible panels. If you look back, Frank Miller's other popular graphic novel, 300, the art is true the same. Frank Miller also did The Spirit, which he directed and was awful. Hopefully they will make Frank Miller's Ronin into a film, but with better judgement.

The problem with these franchises is the fact that the directors and cinematographers can get the look of the film right, but can't get the ideas across in film that come across so well in print. I am not too big on the Sin City comics, though I have read them all. There is something wrong about them that translates through both print and film. Before I make my comment on Sin City, I want to first share with you my reasons on thinking and feeling this way. 

A few years back, Gothic rock star, Marilyn Manson, was performing in Iowa when a person bringing a prop on stage had a smiley face sticker on it. Marilyn Manson acted like that smiley face was the plague, he swore, recoiled and ran off stage. This started a riot at the concert that ended up with lots of injured people and 33 arrests. I don't know how many of you have been to a Marilyn Manson concert. I haven't, but I have seen videos of the crowd who show them in some kind of trance. You know that feeling when there is something terrible, but you can't take your eyes off of it like you are in some trance. I believe that this is the way Marilyn Manson wants his crowds to feel.

In The Phantom of the Opera, a young woman becomes enchanted with aura of evil that surrounds the phantom. Just when you think that the phantom has won, the young woman sends him a ray of sunlight, a holy kiss. The phantom can't take it and fades away. Like some vampire exposed to the sun.

In my opinion, I think that vampires exist today. Not the "Let me suck your blood, bleh"  but the kind that are ready tosuck some of your soul away one ticket at a time. These celebrities make their livings by promoting violence, sex, drugs, rebellion and other things that can stick in your mind way after the entertainment happens.

So, back to Sin City. With the first film, I went to see it and looked around at some of the people in the audience. They had the same looks that those people had at the Marilyn Manson show. It's awful, but we can't look away. The artistic value is neat to look at, but the film doesn't have any characters that aren't involved in anything good. It is bad people fighting bad people. There is no bright ray of sunshine that comes across in the film at all. It's violent, crude, gory, see through clothing making it pretty much nudity, and what do we get out of it? What lesson do we learn. I understand people go to movies to escape and not think for two hours or so, but almost every film we watch, every film that we love is all about the story. Overcoming odds or capturing the bad guy. Symbolism that helps you look inside yourself and inspire you. None of that here. Just dirty and gritty characters, locations, and situations.

The film tricks us. It looks cool, but offers no faith and hope of rescue from it. Charity becomes a bad thing, and frankly, I don't think the writers and filmmakers of the Sin City films don't want to portray that. I think they lack the faith not to portray anything but the bad. The idea of a holy kiss or sunlight or smiley face stickers is disgusting to them. Who do they really care about, you or them? They are in it for a paycheck. They don't care who they hurt. There are people that will disagree with me on this, but that is how I think and feel.

I will be reviewing Sin City 2 tomorrow so that I don't turn in a biased opinion. I will be fair to it just as I am with every other film I see. I hope that I will walk out with a little sunshine in my pocket that I didn't come in with, but I'm not holding my breath. My review will be available on Friday.

Cancelled Television Shows That I Wish We Had Back Today.

Most people know me as a film critic. I attend movies all the time and write about them. I have a hard case of insomnia, which sucks at times, and is great in other ways. I am able to keep up with Hollywood and Independent films, but also keep up with a good number of television shows. There are a ton of shows out there that don't deserve to be on TV anymore, but still go season after season.

The sad thing about TV is that it has all been done before. There are tons of unfunny sitcoms on the air that had a great idea in the beginning, but have run out of ideas. If the ratings and money are right, a show lasts a lot longer than it really should. I'm looking at you Two and a Half Men.

Even with Fox having lots of animated shows that air every Sunday evening have lost steam, or frankly, are only copying The Simpsons and ride on that show's heels. Family Guy? Yeah, not as good, nor ever will be as good as The Simpsons. I feel that it is popular on the only fact that it is more crass than The Simpsons. They might have different characters, but if you look at both Peter Griffin and Homer Simpson, they are both dumb, sarcastic, and spit out "life lessons" that no one in life should ever follow. The Difference, Homer Simpson came about in 1989, and family guy happened almost twenty years later. Just saying. I have found myself to laugh at certain things in Family Guy. I just don't think it is this great work of comedy that is fresh. It's definitely in your face, but sometimes, in your face gets old pretty quick. I am not meaning to totally bash Family Guy. I just used it to compare original and differences of style.

The sad thing is, there have been great television shows that people adored that aren't on television anymore. I will talk about my three favorite shows that are currently off the air.

Number 1: This show will always be my number 1 when it comes to cancelled television shows.


It may have been created by the creators of The Simpsons and have the same styled world that The Simpsons have, but Futurama was special. It took characters, some like characters on The Simpsons, but in different ways. Fry was stupid like Homer Simpson, but Bender had the in-your-face attitude of Homer Simpson. The show aired on Fox, and during that time, The Simpsons was starting to go downhill, a problem that the creators of the Simpsons have been able to fix as of late. True, The Simpsons isn't as good as it was from seasons 3 through season 10, but they went through a slump and worked their way out of it. Anyway, I promise, I am not meaning to write a love letter to The Simpsons, but I feel that it is required when talking about other animated shows. The fact is that while The Simpsons was starting to go downhill, Futurama came about and was very fresh and hilarious. It's episodes started at good and got better, even while its sister series, The Simpsons was starting to decline.

Futurama also had outlandish creatures and characters that you can't get on any other show. It was a dream show for geeks, especially for Star Trek, Star Wars and Doctor Who fans. The science fiction comedy was in a situation to do anything possible. Want to make Richard Nixon jokes years after his presidential and after years, put his head in a jar, and bam, there they are. It also boasted consistent writing, winning several Emmy Awards for writing. You want to see some incredible writing and care for a television show, watch the Futurama episodes "Roswell That Ends Well", "Jurassic Bark" or "Luck of the Fryish". Those episodes go down in my person book of best episodes of any television show ever.

After a couple of seasons, Fox cancelled the show. However, Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming added syndicated episodes of Futurama to its line up. Sales in Futurama Season DVD sets started selling like hot cakes, and so Fox made a deal to make 4 DVD straight to home video films, which sold super well. Those 4 DVD movies got cut up into pieces and aired on television in episode formats. All performed super well, and Comedy Central brought Futurama back to life. Right before that, Family Guy did the same thing, and now it is stronger than ever on Fox. Futurama did two seasons worth of episodes, over a couple of years time. They would release 13 episodes during the summer, and then 13 episodes the next summer clamping it all into one season. It's final episode aired in 2013 on Comedy Central with an incredible episode. All creators and voice actors involved want the show to return, but hasn't had much talk recently, except that they are going to do a crossover episode with The Simpsons this coming season on Fox.

It amazes me that this unique, hilarious and smart television show is off of the airwaves when we have American Dad or Bob's Burgers. There is always hope that it could come back. It has a fan base, but who is willing to take the risk by putting the show back on television after two different cancellations? Honestly, I don't know what Comedy Central was thinking with the show having the best ratings on any  show on that network. Here's hoping.

Next up on my list is probably the best thing to happen to television in a long time, only to be cancelled after two 13 episode seasons.

Pushing Daisies aired on ABC Televison close to six years ago. The show had a beautiful production. The story was original and funny while dealing with the subject of death. It was a crime show in a fantasy world. Here is what the show was about.

Lee Pace, who you may know from The Hobbit and the evil enemy in this year's film, Guardians of the Galaxy, Ronan.  He played Ned, an incredibly gifted pie maker who owned a shop called "The Pie Hole". He was known for his pies being the freshest pies in the city. His secret, when he was a young boy he found that he had a gift. He could touch someone or something. like a piece of fruit, and bring it back to life. However, with his touch came a curse as well. He could bring people back to life after they had passed away, but after sixty seconds, something else in the vicinity of equal value to that spirit had to die. Also, the person would live for sixty seconds, but if he touched them before the sixty seconds was up, the person would die again and would not be able to be brought back to life.

In comes a girl named "Chuck". He brings her back to life, but kind of falls in love with her, so he let her live while someone else died. It was a choice that weighed on Ned, but what happens next is sad. Chuck and Ned fall in love, but if he touches her again, she will die and never be able to come to life again. Some of the fun creativity from the show was Ned and Chuck finding ways to show each other physical attraction without actually touching each other. However, Ned is also loved by one of his employees who isn't dead and brought back to life, Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth's character, Olive. She was great and the show made use of her singing talent.

The other aspect of the show was there was a private detective that was hard up for crimes to solve. His name was Emerson. Emerson and Ned would go to morgues looking for people who had been murdered. Ned would touch them, bring them to life for 59 seconds. The deceased person would tell them what happened, and then they would scope out the crime scene, solve the murder, and get paid well for doing it. It was so original and funny. One of the show's creators, Barry Sonnenfeld, producer and director of The Addams Family films and the Men in Black films, was a producer and used his wisdom behind pulling off macabre in a sweet and fantastic way. Pushing Daisies was bright, full of humor, awesome sets, original stories, and fun. It was a show I could not wait for every week.

The show didn't struggle so much in ratings, but the production value it cost needed more fans to watch the show. At the time, it was ABC's most expensive show to produce. Lower ratings than what were needed killed the show. It even left huge, gaping questions to  the characters and storyline. ABC and creators of the show promised a comic book idea that was perfect for the show to continue on in some other format and answer all of the questions the show left hanging. It never happened. I own season one and two on DVD and get them out, watch them and feel thankful that I at least have 22 episodes of the show, but how I yearn for more. To leave this one on a positive note, however, the show creator, Bryan Fuller did an interview and said that he would love to bring Pushing Daisies to the big screen or in the form of a Broadway musical. I would love either one, although I think that maybe with a film, people could want the TV show to return. Either way, I want more, and I hope it will come in any format. Personally, comic books would be super awesome. Either way, I want to follow more adventures of Ned, Chuck, Emerson, and Olive. Hopefully it will happen.

My last show I wanted to talk about, but actually am breaking the rule of this article is I wanted to talk about a show that I loved to watch that was able to run its course, but wish we had one more season to fix the up in the air feeling.

I remember the first time I heard about Chuck. I read that it was brought about by the people who made The O.C., a show I wasn't particularly a fan of. I wasn't too interested in Chuck until my mom called me up and asked me if I had watched it. I said that I hadn't, and she proceeded to tell me that it was really funny and charming in a strange way. I remember watching season one, loving it, and then there started to be rumors that they wouldn't continue with the show. But with the fans writing in, Chuck was able to survive for five seasons. Of course the nerd spy show was fun, but my interest was always a "Are Chuck and Sarah ever going to end up together?" The show answered the question in the end, but it was strange and open-ended. I think the show, as far as the spy comedy it was, ran its course and there didn't really need to be anymore "Intersect" story lines. The show started to go downhill as far as the spy stuff went when the intersect was something that almost anyone could get and turn into. I just wish we had one more season to find out where the characters were going to go, especially in the "Are they together or not" department. It gives me the same feeling that a tied soccer match gives me. Who the heck won? I don't know, but it's an ending.

Also, this is kind of a cheat, but wanted to mention one more show. Said above that Chuck would be the last show I brought up, but I have to include 24.

I am really glad that Fox brought 24 back to TV. I loved the show during its run on Fox for eight seasons. Also in the middle of the series, was a made for TV movie to air during the end of the summer to set up the next season of 24. I watched every season every year without fail. It was great to have Jack Bauer back kicking some trash. It only lasted half of the time that a normal season lasted, but 24: Live Another Day  delivered making it one of the best seasons of the show. Everything was action packed, and the drama between the big action sequences raised the stakes of the situation. There were twists and turns, and it was a heck of a lot of fun to watch. I am sure that Fox made the season a kind of ratings "test" to see if it could draw high numbers that it once did. It was successful, so here is also hoping that Kiefer Sutherland  and company will return with another season of action packed drama.

Anyway, those are my shows I wish I had back, even just for a little bit. Let me know what shows that have been off of the air for a little while that you would love to see return.

The Funny Thing About Being A Film Critic......

All of my life, I have always loved going to the movies, like a lot of people. I always love them and collect them and share them with people. My favorite thing about the movies most of the time is that they share ideas or can inspire people. There are tons of films that I love because they make me feel something different that I don't feel anywhere else. The same is true with books, live theater and music. But there is something about film that always fascinates me a little more than other arts.

I was talking about a film I recently saw and hated, cough (Into the Storm), and I felt kind of bad because I was talking with a friend of mine at the theater who was excited to see it. I gave my reasons, but I also know that there are some bad movies out there and for some reason, I have enjoyed them, and have even added a few to my collection. As a film critic, I like to report my opinions about films, but I also encourage people to make their own minds up about things.

Back in May when The Amazing Spider-Man 2 came out, I walked out of the theater and had enjoyed myself. Other film critics ripped it to shreds, but I also understand why the filmmakers made the choices that they did, and also being a fan of comic books, everything made sense to me. I also loved the chemistry behind Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. They touched on and answered some questions brought about by the first Amazing Spider-Man, and they left a wide open window for the next film. From what I understand, they are preparing to make a "Sinister Six" film which includes Spider-Man's top six foes.

At critic screenings, I have to report to the person in charge of the screening and tell them my thoughts. A critic in front of me who I personally can't stand to be around very much, lol, said it was the worst movie he had ever seen and said that he was praying for the day when Transformers 4 would be released to get the bad taste out of his mouth. In my opinion, what an idiot. Transformers 4, in my opinion, was terrible. If you search online for other critics opinions, you have probably came across Rotten Tomatoes. That site collects around 150 reviews from critics all over the world and gives a percentage of what films are considered good by critics and bad by critics. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has three times more the good ratings than Transformers 4 did. However, this critic's opinion is just as valid as mine, and he has the right to think that.

Sometimes there are films that I am willing to defend because I really enjoyed them, when sometimes most critics don't. I try to express my opinion and leave the reader up to decide for themselves if they want to see the film or not. Everyone is different and has different tastes. A close friend of mine that attends screenings with me sometimes will say what he thinks, which is great. It's funny to see the difference in opinions. I can walk out of a film thinking that it was really awesome and how I can't wait to see it again. My friend will come out and say that he liked it, but doesn't really never need to see it again.

If I like something, I usually end up with a copy and watch the film every now and again for the sole reason of what I said earlier, they help me feel something or think something that only that story can teach.

I have my opinions and people have theirs. I say what I think and feel and am able to express myself through the stories. I say what I think and hope that people will decide for themselves as well. People are allowed to have their guilty pleasures, of which I have many. There are films I hate and will never see again, but I know that some people can find a piece of themselves in, so I try not to be too critical of other people and their opinions so that in turn people won't be too critical of me.

This evening, I sat down and watched two films. Safety Not Guaranteed and re-watched The Amazing Spider-Man 2. I still feel the same way about Spider-Man as I did when I saw it. Safety Not Guaranteed debuted at Sundance 2012, and I wasn't able to get in with my press pass because I arrived too late from another Sundance screening. I really enjoyed it. It is available on Netflix, and it is rated R for a handful of language and a couple of sexual references.

I just felt the need to say some of these thoughts while the end credits started to role for Spider-Man. I don't think that my opinions outrank anyone else and their opinions. I love being a critic and love spending two or three times a week at the theater. I feel so lucky that I am in the position that I am in and hopefully my love for cinema can come across in my reviews and  help other people maybe connect with something that inspires them.

Anyway, that's just a few of my thoughts. If I get some feedback on this blog through blogger or Facebook, I will gladly post a list of films that are guilty pleasures of mine. Until next time, I hope you enjoyed reading this post. Come back and visit my blog soon.

New Addiction to My Family.....

Here we are. Born on August 1st, 2014 at 11:22 in the morning. Baby Stella Christine Park came into the world as part of our family. My sister Christine and Brother-in-Law, Dave, my nephew, Carson and niece Elizabeth have a brand new family member moving in. Due to watching Elliot this weekend, him having a runny nose, I was only able to see Stella for about five minutes, but here are the little videos I took. I actually do two stupid things in them. One, I filmed my dad's phone while he was filming the baby, just to give people who like the film Inception....and two, my dad quietly asks what he was on, meaning video or camera mode while recording the baby. Dad says "What was I on?" when I comment "Acid". I apologize for the dumb jokes. Here is the video. This will be dated come September when my other sister has her baby.
