Caveman Smash!!


Its ironic that we got the Clash of the Cavemen in for review from the History Channel. I just finished out a biology class in the spring where the subject of evolution almost started a riot.

I think I was still in elementary school when I first saw a rendition of what a "caveman" or Neanderthals would have looked like and I was totally fascinated. Just to even imagine that there were other "humanoids" other than our current species seems baffling to me. That leaves so many questions, did we evolve from the same species, if so how closely were we related? If we evolved from diffrent species how does that happen.. could it happen again? Seriously call me a weirdo but questions like that will completely keep me up at night.

The History Channel's movies have always been great but their use of CGI is getting better it seems with each release. The Clash of the Cavemen combines live action actors with CGI Neanderthals and the combination is almost flawless. I wonder how much longer it will be before we even need actors! Its really a great glimpse into what it must have been liked when the Neanderthals and the Cro-Magnon's worlds combined. Its also a great way to introduce your kids to the Neanderthals in a non cartoonish, realistic way that will really keep their attention. Its always great to be learning without realizing your learning!

It still makes you wonder though with two species so simular, did the two species interbreed are there still little bits of the Neanderthals living and walking within us right now. I secretly wonder this when I see guys walking around with just unusual amounts of body hair. heh.

Here is the offical description :

GO BEHIND THE THEATRICAL REleASE OF 10,000 B.C., AS HISTORY™ PRESENTS THE EPIC BATTLE OF BRAINS VS. BRAUN THAT DETERMINED THE COURSE OF HUMAN HISTORY

In the ice-ravaged wilds of Europe, circa 25,000 BC, it’s a tough time to be alive. Freezing temperatures grip the planet as the peak of the last Ice Age takes hold. Food is scarce, massive predators are on the prowl and a range war like no other raged between two species of primitive man. In a unique moment in the world's history, these two species -- Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon (Homo sapiens) -- competed for resources and for a permanent spot at the top of the animal kingdom. And this July, the epic battle that determined the course of human history comes to rich life with CLASH OF THE CAVEMEN, one of the most lavish and expensive productions to date from HISTORY™.

A cinema-quality documentary that dramatically reconstructs prehistoric life like never before, CLASH OF THE CAVEMEN unveils evolution in action, as Darwin’s theories are put to the test in this cataclysmic fight to the finish viewers won’t soon forget.

The Clash of the Cavemen is available on Amazon!

I have one copy of Clash of the Cavemen to give away to a lucky reader!

We no longer have cable, and therefore do not get the History Channel any longer. My husband would be particularly interested in watching this. This would be perfect for our DVD collection. As far as the bitsy bear the pink one is also my favorite, I also like their swaddle wraps.

Hi,
I really like the new Miss Mary Rockin Onesies! I love the red color and that they are made of 100percent organic cotton! Only the best and safest for baby!

I'm not a mom, but I give a lot of baby gifts to friends and relatives, so I enjoy seeing these unique, safe gifts at a reasonable price!!

I clicked on your link "About Bitsy Bear"....It was cute what you said something about "Babies deserve to wear lots of color, not just pink or blue...sometimes it's a mango tango day!! Spice it up a little with color, nice!!

I like your pink Bitsy bear with polka dots on the arms, she should come live with me to add some Bitsy Bear Charm to my life!

Thanks for the colorful website! I'll keep you in mind for upcoming baby gift giving!

I'm not going to post about Bitsy Bear, even though it's ADORABLE, and I feel in love with the Swaddle Wraps (crumb, I just DID talk about him lol) but I will tell you about my husband's reaction when he saw this give away.

He said "OH! Wow! I would watch that, don't enter anything else, just win that one!" lol I think he's a bit excited. It's fun to see him excited over something.

Not sure if this is the right place to comment since your post was about the Clash of the Cavemen.

As for the Bitsy Bear, I like the Pink Bitsy Bear the best, and she should come live with me because she would get so much love from my little niece, and my niece would get so much joy from having her in her life.

Thanks!
