May 22nd – May 28th

The Valley Nerd Watch!


Boss Baby was oddly good, some real nice physical comedy animating from Dreamworks. Good job, Dreamworks! Good job team of probably 100 animators doing some of the most grueling and boring work possible for only acceptable pay!

We would also like to point you once again to the excellent new Valley meetup about film making! The Western MA Film Makers Meetup! It is neat, and it’s a good excuse to go to fun events and meet new people to spend time with. Who doesn’t need a bit of that in their lives?

Also! News this week: Greenfield Games changed locations! They’re no longer renting, either! They bought a place just down the street from their old location. It’s a bit bigger, a bit nicer, and in general it seems things are going well for them. Look for them at 228 Main St. in Greenfield!

Go check out the Valley Creators page! As always, be sure to check out our Patreon and the Weekly Events page! There are a lot of fun things happening this and every week! And don’t forget to check out the updated Book Clubs List!
