I geeked out. I really do love Star Wars, back to seeing my first film (Return of the Jedi) in the movie theatre with my parents when I was a kid. Star Wars Rules. The Indiana State Museum has a new exhibit, Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination. The whole purpose of the exhibit is to show you some COOL Star Wars relics and show you how our own technology and science came into play when creating new science fiction!
Yes there are lots of different ships, costumes and vehicles. PLUS – you can ride a land speeder replicator (hover ship), play games and visit some of the worlds (Tattoine, Hoth, Corruscant and more) of Star Wars. The exhibit is not only fun, but educational for children too!
Check out the video with Aja May – social media guru for the museum.

I have camped out for the opening of Episode 1 and loved the re releases of Star Wars in the late 90′s (I actually got a job working at a movie theatre just to watch the movies). As a 35 year old man, I still love to get a good Star Wars toy and read the books.

The exhibit which shows you movie memorabilia and real science and technology runs now through September 2013. In the end, amazing time and when you pay the $10 admission price you get to see the rest of the museum as well! Now that is a good deal.

Movember Indy Gala 2012 – Tomlinson Tap Room
Movember 1st, 2012 video – Red’s Barber Shop & Sun King Brewery
We had a fantastic time getting hot shaves at Red’s Classic Barber Shop and then drinking some Stiff Upper Lip (official beer of Movember Indy 2012) at Sun King Brewing Company on the 1st of the month. We truly do love Movember and growing our moustaches for men’s health and prostate cancer. Wild Bill of DoItIndy created a fantastic video that truly highlights the night and cause.
I was the 28th shave of the day to break the record…I got to ring the bell! Thank you so much Red’s. Please donate today at www.mobro.co/doitindy. Hope to see you out at a Movember event soon!
Movember is awesome. I found out about the charity last year and I’ve been hooked ever since. Through genetics that my father blessed me with, I have the ability to grow hair like an adolescent wookie, so my moustache is BIG. My dad is an inspiration to my moustache too, he rocked one for over 15 years. The picture below is my dad in 1978, what a leisure suit!
Last year DoItIndy (Tolin and I) raised $720 for the charity. THIS year we have the DoItIndy Urban Moustache Warriors and at this time have 16 members and counting! Nothing like growing your moustache and hanging out with Mo Bros and Mo Sistas. I invite you to click on the link and join our wonderful team today. NO running or walking, we just grow our moustaches for men’s health and prostate cancer. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Throughout the month of Movember, the local committee (which I am lucky to be a part of) has planned several events for the Indy area! Please visit www.movemberindy.com for more information on the local movement, events, sponsors and more. You can also find Movember Indy on Facebook and Twitter. During the last two years the state of Indiana has raised $51,779.67 and the city of Indianapolis has raised $26,646.73, that is awesome for a young charity! Heading into the third year that Movember has been in the state, people are ready as ever and the movement is catching on. I can’t wait to see what happens in 2012. DoItIndy is also a proud sponsor of Movember Indy.
Hope to see you out soon for a Movember Indy event!
Moustaches seem to be catching on…
I leave you with these fine words from Ron Swanson or a.k.a. Nick Offerman. A true moustache warrior!

When I was in college…yes I played Pokemon a little. I am a true fan-boy geek at heart. The game was OK, but I never really got into it. BUT – the cartoon was always cool to me. PIKACHU!!!!!
Check it out – I got to interview the world wide marketing manager, a player of the card game and PIKACHU!

FIVE Ziplines. Tarzan swing ropes, bridges, rope ladders, and more await you at Eagle Creek Park’s newest attraction – Go Ape! Treetop Adventure. The entire course takes two to three hours and you never know it – time flies by! Lol. I took roaming reporter Slick Laroo and my friend McCully (she designs the DoItIndy logos) with me to have fun and see what this new adventure was all about.
Seriously – if you travel to the Treetop Adventure wear good shoes and not too much clothing. You will be twisting, swinging, bending, climbing and having a great time. This is THE thing for an outdoor fun junkie!
So grab your family and friends…because this is cool. Have fun this summer and experience all that Indy Parks has to offer. If the Treetop Adventure isn’t for you, the Indy parks department will have something that you will like! For more Indy Parks and Recreation info: Indy Parks official website.
