“Swimming” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

Posted by on January 6th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

If you’ve known how to swim for a long while it can be hard to remember what it was like when you first learned. For a little kid, even fully armored up like the Stay Puf’t Marshmallow Man with weird-feeling floaties, the giant bathtub that a pool is can be ominous. Being told that they’re […]

Anyone with kids above a certain speaking age has had their eyebrows raised into orbit when their kid starts saying… monumentally strange things. They can be weird, razor honest, sweet, embarrassing, wise, and often also hilarious. Martin Bruckner, art director and father of a 3-year-old daughter named Harper, decided to take some of these strange […]

My Wife Just Texted… #193

Posted by on December 29th, 2014, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

My wife and I share a passion for sales. We don’t claim to be pros, we’re more like face-painted and foam-finger wielding fans. No, our pillows aren’t stuffed with expired coupons, our use of eBay isn’t like a government intelligence agency, and we’re not thrift shop tag-poppin’ junkies (yet), but if someone puts a BIG […]

JINGLEBOOK – The Social Network for Christmas

Posted by on December 23rd, 2014, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS, SNAPSHOTS

Christmas and Facebook are each forces to be reckoned with, but added together? That’s something you shouldn’t reckon with a ten foot pole probably.* * the North Pole is not ten feet long and also does not actually physically exist. It’s an abstract concept given to a general geographical location.   But seriously (except not […]

Dad Uses His Kid as a Human Drum Machine (VIDEO)

Posted by on December 19th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

If rhythm was a language, it’s clear I’d have both a stutter and Tourette’s. I can’t tap out the simplest beat on my steering wheel, let alone my kids. So, this video is super specially especially amazing to me. It’s not okay to beat your kid… unless you’re harmlessly dropping mad beats like this dad. […]

Robots Will Want Babies Too

Posted by on December 17th, 2014, under NOTEBOOK

Let’s face it. Science fiction has done a pretty interstellar job of predicting the future. Computers, smartphones, lasers, 3D printing, space travel, velcro, all fortune-told by sci-fi long long ago in a galaxy, well… right here.

“Zebras” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

Posted by on December 17th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Playing with a little kid can turn into a wild goose chase, or zebra chase as the case may be. When searching, parent’s have pretty poor vision when it comes to being able to see where the fictional characters of a toddler mind may be, so you’re completely reliant on them as your guide in […]

My Wife Just Texted… #191

Posted by on December 15th, 2014, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

  A classic example of a “teacher” writing to a parent about the vital need for a child to bone up on video games. Look it’s even got two bold exclamation points!! Totally legit. When little kids fake messages from their teacher or from one parent to the other or from an imaginary pony, it’s […]
