How to Be a Dad

You’re Just A Kid

Posted by on October 25th, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

Fatherhood is a frying pan. Sometimes it cooks. Sometimes it clangs. It’s the past, present, and future sizzling away as we try to figure out what we’re making here. We toil over these strange recipes, unsure of the final meal. We turn up the heat and things chill. Grow colder, things heat up. It’s a […]

Posted by on October 6th, 2017, under NOTEBOOK

Freak out. Because that’s what I’m doing right now with my newly-minted 8-year-old. Just kidding. Well, not really. Eight years-old is one of those ages that can make parents go full-on existential crisis mode. The obviousness of your kid no longer looking or acting like a baby is startling. Personality is more defined. It’s a […]

Has The Dad Bod Jumped The Shark?

Posted by on September 20th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

Back in my day (right now), dads had dad bods (I do). Dammit. This first line already sounds like the worst book for new readers. Anyway, dad bods became a big news item a couple years ago. Lots of dads put on a little weight and the term was coined to refer to men with […]

This Simpsons Remix Is A Feels Multiplier

Posted by on September 11th, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

The Simpson’s has always been at the crux of a certain kind of Americana that both truthfully chronicles and not-so-neatly critiques our culture. At this point in my life, it feels like an additional sibling. Present, familiar, and childish. There’s apparently a whole field of video editing subculture called “simpsonwave” where a specific style of […]

LEGO: Grand Theft Auto

Posted by on September 6th, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

Sure, we thought of LEGO Grand Theft Auto a long time ago, but this is a whole nuther level. Possibly definitely NSFW or NSFK (Not Safe For Kids), this takes brick films to new heights. I used to play Grand Theft Auto a bit. It was always a little jarring how realistic it could be. […]

Guy Convinces Justin Timberlake To Hold His Baby… But How?

Posted by on August 22nd, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

Celebrities get hit up with a lot of strange requests. People think, because they feel some connection with that talented person, I guess, that they can approach them to do a variety of tasks.

My Wife Just Said… #327

Posted by on August 14th, 2017, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

Tomorrow is the first day of school. The kids are in bed. We are about to sit down on the couch to get some adult time. Things are moving faster than ever, but summer has this indescribable ability to go both too fast and too slow simultaneously. It defies physical laws. The weeks dragged on, […]

Game Of Thrones: Family Edition (Spoilers)

Posted by on August 10th, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

If you’ve ever lived in or near construction, or experienced the joys of having loud children, well then this scene is for you. When my son was first was born there was CONSTANT construction.
