sidekick Biggie to go on a heroic quest to defeat Sifu’s arch-nemesis, Slash to save their kung fu
academy from peril.
 

The Legend of Kung Fu Rabbit is another great film brought to you by Lionsgate.  We here in the Cammo Love house are big fans of anything martial arts related right now.  My two oldest are in Tae Kwon Do, so we have been spending some time checking out board breaking and the like on YouTube.  The story is sweet and it definitely teaches the lessons of honesty and perseverance.  But what I really liked about the film was the animation.  It seemed more like a beautifully written storybook in the an animated feature.  It looked more like it was hand-painted, rather then stark computer animation.  The colors are beautiful, especially in the dream sequence.  My eight year old wasn’t as interested in this as my almost five year daughter was.

There is martial arts violence and use of weaponry.  The Dove Foundation (which this film gave its seal of approval) recommends this film for 12+.  You can visit the Dove Foundation’s website to see a more broken down description of why they suggested the age range.  It is very comparable to many other animated films out there, so the rating seems a little high in my opinion.

Doc McStuffins is in the house!!!! “Doc Mobile” tour kick-off

Doc McStuffins might not be in your house literally, but she’s in mine.  If you don’t know who Doc McStuffins is she’s an adorable little girl whose toys come to life and help her fix and take care of any toy that needs their help.  In 2012, Doc McStuffins was cable tv’s #1 series for ages 2-5, as well as the #1 TV preschool series in Total Viewers and Woman 18-49 (all those moms out there!).   And to celebrate the shows second season premier, Doc and her friends might be coming to a city near you.  Disney Junior will also be premiering the Doc McStuffins “Doc Mobile” game and other digital activities, on August 30.  Children will be able to create their own doctor avatar, which my daughter will probably go completely nuts for.  The season two premier, will also debut that day in a “special preview” form on the Watch Disney Junior mobile app.  If you haven’t downloaded, you can grab it for free.  When it’s connected to your cable provider you can watch more things.  However, Disney Junior has a couple episodes on there that are free whether you register or not.  The Cammo Style Love house has been known to take advantage of this great app while out and about.  Now, more about the tour:

 

The Doc Mobile, a 27-foot Airstream trailer custom-made to reach young kids (age 2-7) and families with fun and empowering experiences relating to health and nutrition will embark on a multi-city tour  SUNDAY, AUGUST 18 in Boston. Themed “So Much You Can Do…to Take Care of You!” the initiative is inspired by Disney Junior’s acclaimed “Doc McStuffins,” the animated series that models good health and compassion through stories of a young girl, a would-be doctor, who cares for her ailing stuffed animals and other toys. The Doc Mobile features an area for kids to perform a “check-up” on their own toys plus other activities and age-appropriate health and wellness lessons including nutrition and physical development and fitness.

 During the multi-city tour parents and kids will get the opportunity to meet doctors from the Artemis Medical Society, a group of 2500 female African-American doctors that formed their group after seeing themselves in the character of Doc McStuffins.  Their goal to inspire other young girls to pursue their dreams in the medical field.  Make sure to follow along on the tour by liking Disney Junior on Facebook and twitter.  You can already get information on the “Doc Mobile” page of Disney Junior.

Bounce Back and the New Social Media Powerhouse

The blogging community is a pretty cool one, although I may be biased.  Some of the most amazing people I know I met through the blogging and volunteering work, and sometimes both.  It is a source of friendship building and discovery.  The things that I’ve learned about from my fellow blogging pals, from blogs in general, as well as the information I’ve gone to blogs to find, is crazy.  The power that blogs can wield is astounding at times.  You might have seen me blog, tweet and facebook about the upcoming Indie project The Bounce Back.  (My first blog post can be read here

I was so completely thrilled to be a part of this campaign from the very beginning.  First of all I jumped on board because my awesome friend Erica was heading it up, she’s a fellow milspouse.  But secondly, ummm hello..its Shemar Moore.  I’m a huge fan, mostly from his Criminal Minds acting….I’m a complete Crime Show nerd.  So this post is part introduction and part update.  As of today, right now, we have well exceeded our originial goal of $500,000.  We are at $605,810!!  How incredible is that?!  There was a part of me that was just wondering how this was going to be accomplished.  I remember hearing about the Veronica Mars thing and just being blown over.  I mean, these are just regular every day people who have a passion about something like a tv show.  It can seem silly when you just say it like that, but people know what they want.  How many movies and tv shows get made and you’re thinking, “What, really?!”  This was the chance to get something made because people wanted it to be made!!  We’ve set some records people!!  The Bounce Back is the #1 funded movie on indegogo and look at these stats for crowdfunded projects:

1. Veronica Mars Film – Kickstarter – $5.7M – campaign ended 91,585 funders

2. Wish I Were Here – Zach Braff – Kickstarter $3.1 M – campaign ended – 46,520 funders

3. Road Hard – Adam Corrolla – FundAnything $837,5K (campaign still running) – 8,571 funders

4. The Bounce Back Film – Indiegogo – $551.2K (campaign still running) – over 3000 funders

Fourth of all time?!  What?!!  The power of the people my friend, the power of the people.  So, today I wanted to share with you that this power is going to be taken to a whole new level, with the creation of the Entertainment New Media Network.   Blessed, isn’t really the word for it, but to be a part of something new like this is exciting!  My new boss said it best:

 There truly is power in numbers, and in Hollywood numbers are power. Entertainment New Media Network is where the two meet.  -Erica I. Pena-Vest
 

I get to be a part of a new network of bloggers that are working on entertainment-related campaigns; proving that there are power in numbers and that this power lies with regular people who have grabbed hold of a vision and gone for a ride!!! 

If you’re just hearing about this campaign…welcome..check it out and see if you want to be involved, contribute, whatever.  Ask me questions!!  I’d love to answer them.  And let me know what you think about the project.  Have you watched the video about it?  Are you a Shemar fan?  What do you think about the power of social media?

follow along with the crazy on facebook and twitter, as well as The Bounce Back Blog
