One Minute Video – Super Mario Hot Wheels

Super Mario Bros Hot Wheels

I found the Super Mario Themed Hot Wheels cars today at Walmart. These cars are on cards that, when put together make a side scrolling scene. The cars that have been recolored to represent Mario Bros Characters: Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Wario, Bowser, Toad, Yoshi and Donkey Kong. The vehicles are The Vandetta, Ryura LX, RD-08, Cruise Bruiser, Bully Goat, Bread Box, Flathead Fury and Super Van. I”ll probably keep these on the cards because of the scene that they create. I do like it when Hot Wheels takes something like this and makes a great set of cards and cars that work together. I liked the Stars and Stripes set that makes an American Flag with two large eagles on the top and bottom. That was a great series. You can see all of the cars in my video below. And after that is an image of all 8 of them.

My Thoughts on Luke Cage on Netflix #StreamTeam

I am a Netflix #StreamTeam and as such receive compensation from Netflix. I feel that I must disclose this when I talk about Netflix shows and what I think about them. Opinions are 100% my own.

This isn’t even a particular #StreamTeam post that I have to do as part of the team, I just really enjoyed Marvel’s Luke Cage. Luke Cage is the latest in the various Marvel shows on Netflix. Each show is 13 episodes packed with so much action, drama and Marvel Easter Eggs.

Luke Cage came out on September 30th with all 13 episodes. I dove right in and binged all of season 1. I have been reading many Marvel titles on the Marvel Unlimited app. Reading though all the Marvel Civil War and then New Avengers and so many other titles I’ve gotten to know the story of Luke Cage and the character from the comic books. This show was so well done and I couldn’t put all of my thoughts into that one minute vlog. I cannot believe that I said Donald Faison when I meant Frankie Faison. I thought that one of the breakout stars of the show was Simone Missick as Misty Knight. She had such character. I just loved her scenes. There was s much to enjoy about this series. Mike Colter made an excellent Luke Cage. He just got that character down. I loved the Easter eggs like the Tiara and the yellow blouse. That was great! Now I have to wait to see the next series which would be Iron Fist and then The Defenders unless there is another Daredevil or Jessica Jones before that.

There are plenty of action scenes in this show but it is the moments where the characters speak to each other that are the most compelling. The relationship between Luke Cage and Misty Knight has depth and complexity. They play off each other very well. Later another character shows up and she and Luke come together in a different way. Their relationship is also complex but through it we learn even more. I need to watch the last 10 minutes of episode 13 again because of all the little things that are teased for the future. I cannot wait for it, I think I’ll have to watch all the shows again, this time with Allison. Here’s what I said in my vlog today.

I also teased a few things that I’ll be featuring on the vlog this coming week.
