How to Be a Dad


This is our video section. One of us, who shall remain nameless, still has VHS tapes lying around. They should be teased. In the meantime, watch our homemade videos in this section.

Old Timey Self-Defense Video + SOUND EFFECTS = Radness!

Posted by on March 11th, 2015, under VIDEOTAPE

When I was growing up, I got a false sense of likelihood about child abduction and attacks. With all the TV shows and PSAs that warned about it, I figured every one in my school would be kidnapped or assaulted at one point or another. I’m not saying education isn’t important. My parents tended to […]

Teaching kids about strangers is tricky business. Some strangers are police officers or emergency workers. Others are dangerous villains looking to do our kids harm. How do we differentiate and teach our kids to do the same? One mother in Korea decided to instruct her daughter on the best way to deal with strangers. The […]

Lately, we’ve been experimenting on our YouTube channel with some new stuff. One such crazy experiment is a semi-monthly “show” with a few funny dads* covering a week in review. It’s been really fun.

Our ALS Ice Bucket + Mentos & Diet Coke Challenge

Posted by on August 29th, 2014, under VIDEOTAPE

Of course we had to do it. Aside from being nominated several bazillion times, the ALS ice bucket challenge has evolved explosively into a cultural and global phenomenon that we’ve been delighted to witness. From celebrities to the people next door, there have been so many inspiring, clever, and not so clever or inspiring (yikes) […]

5 Years Ago This Very Minute…

Posted by on February 5th, 2014, under VIDEOTAPE

I found out we were having our first baby five years ago to this very minute. Rather than tell you about it, why don’t I show you… I was at a staged reading of a friend’s script. We finished up and I felt this urgency from my wife, Avara. It was an energy like I […]

Our Baby Hiccups

Posted by on October 17th, 2013, under VIDEOTAPE

My wife texted (cause that’s a word, right?) me this video from home yesterday. It all becomes so much more real when you see the heartbeat or watch them move.

Priceless Commercial: Clifford the Big Red Dog

Posted by on July 10th, 2013, under VIDEOTAPE

Despite all the Japanese-monster-movie-like damage he must do, for the little girl that owns him, he’s priceless. Kinda makes you think, doesn’t it? Just how big are Clifford’s doggie ‘biscuits’ anyways? No seriously. The guy is HUGE. And, remember when he grew so big at first in their apartment building—so his head and tail were […]
