Winnie The Vader Is The Coolest

Posted by on April 8th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

I’ve read so many comic books, kids’ picture books and everything in between that I can’t help imagining random mashups of characters and plot lines. It was inevitable. One of my favorite mashups was done by an amazing artist who put Winnie the Pooh and Star Wars together. The result was amazing. Wookiee the Chew […]

You’ll Want to be an Action Movie Kid Soooooo Bad!

Posted by on April 3rd, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

It’s pretty much impossible to be a kid and not dream of being an action hero or superhero. They’re just so calm, cool and drive the best friggin’ cars. Daniel Hashimoto is a father and an After Effects genius who works for DreamWorks. He used his special effects skills to make 10-15 second videos of […]

Maximumble: Is this your punishment or mine?

Posted by on March 27th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

  This comic has me wondering if its creator, Chris Hallbeck, is pretty much a psychic or some kind of wise man. I know I’ve leveled privilege-removing threats at my kids and been mentally praying to myself that it works, because if it doesn’t… ugh. So much more work. It’s like a bluff almost. When […]

The Evolutionary Progress of Kids’ Games

Posted by on March 26th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Listen, I’m not one of those old men sitting in his boxers on the porch spraying people with a hose as they walk all over his lawn. Okay, fine. I am, but with that completely aside, are kids today too coddled and catered to? I think the answer is “yes” and now I have unequivocal […]

3-Year-Old Ninja Caught on Video

Posted by on March 18th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

When I was about ten, I created a home-made pair of nunchucks. I sawed a broomstick into two short kid-ninja-sized handles and then, using screws, attached them together with a short chain. After about five minutes of practicing, I was certain that the authentic Japanese word nunchaku must have been defined as “self-inflicted head trauma.” […]

Time flies… so fast.

Posted by on February 28th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Tempus fugit. It’s a Latin expression that means “time flies.” I first heard this expression from my dad, who is Yale-graduate-level learned. I was a just a teen, so I had to either assume he’d freakishly sneezed or ask him what it meant. Tempus has been vigorously fugitting since I was a lad, so Googling […]

Maximumble: Sex Ed Astronomy

Posted by on February 20th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

  FROM THE ARTIST, CHRIS HALLBECK: “I remember my mom telling me “The mommy and daddy kiss and he has a little squirt gun that shoots into her body.” I imagined a green plastic squirt gun in the back of his throat that squirted into her mouth and then went down to her belly where […]

What If ‘Full House’ Wasn’t Full?

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

Did you watch “Full House” growing up? I did. Each character had their shining and whining moments, but the character that never made any sense to me was Michelle. Yes, I’m talking about the cutesy Olson twins who played the single character whose sole purpose was comic relief by way of small smiles and giant […]

Milk In My Sippy Cup (Remix)

Posted by on February 13th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

I like to make and listen to music. I’m not very good at making it, but I enjoy listening to it. Sometimes, my son will bang on things and I get ideas for melodies or beats. But, again, I’m not super talented at that stuff. This dad, however, is… What do you guys think? – […]
