Kid’s Complex Reaction to Rogue One a Star Wars Story

Posted by on April 9th, 2018, under VIDEOTAPE

Watching the Star Wars saga with my son has been one of the most amazing experiences for me. And not “because I loved Star Wars since I was a kid.” Seeing his reactions would have been parental treasure even if I was a lunatic and hated the movies. His passion and exhilaration are completely contagious. […]

The Birds and the Bees… and a Swarm of Bees Challenge???

Posted by on March 29th, 2018, under VIDEOTAPE

When it comes to having “The Talk” with their kids, parents can range from super-chill whatevs about it, to something that doctors would write down on a clipboard as a coronary event. I kind of get the sense that the average experience sits closer to the heart attack than explaining it casually while making a […]

Will My Kid Be Sporty… or Not So Much?

Posted by on March 16th, 2018, under VIDEOTAPE

When you become a parent, no matter how hands-off you intend to be on their personality, you still have to wonder what kind of person your sweet little bag of wiggles will become. I was never good at or terrifically interested sports. My older brother very much was, so I learned a bunch more than […]

Farewell, Toys ‘R’ Us – We ‘R’ Sad

Posted by on March 15th, 2018, under NOTEBOOK, VIDEOTAPE

Today, Toys ‘R’ Us begins closing the doors on its stores, and with them, part of my childhood. There’s a vast universe of “My Kids Will Never Know” memes out there. This is really a timeless theme; generations always have and always will advance forward, turning the things of today into antiquated and unfamiliar footnotes […]

What If Famous Movie Themes Were Replaced With Pop Music?

Posted by on February 28th, 2018, under VIDEOTAPE

My wife recently asked me when Star Wars was released. I told her 1977 and randomly thought of the popular music of the era and laughed imagining the movie with disco music instead of the orchestral genius of John Williams. So I had the idea of putting this video together: 12 movies with iconic instrumental […]

The Sweetest Thing You’ll See Today Is a Spider

Posted by on February 5th, 2018, under VIDEOTAPE

The combination of adorable dialog from a little kid and super cute 3D animation that should be the envy of Pixar, is priceless. You may have seen one of these under-a-minute videos because they’ve gone pretty flippin’ viral. How viral? The first video is only months old and the YouTube channel has 600,000 followers. But […]

Son’s Excited 1st-Time Reaction to STAR WARS The Force Awakens

Posted by on December 12th, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

Two years ago, when he was six, my son and I watched STAR WARS: A New Hope for his first time. He was ridiculously adorable and hilarious and he LOVED it. The internet also loved the reaction video, so I did one for Empire and Jedi as well. We waited way too long to watch […]

Sesame Street Does a Priceless Parody of STRANGER THINGS!

Posted by on November 29th, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

Just when you thought the people who make Sesame Street couldn’t be any cooler, the creative geniuses come up with a parody of all things the Netflix original series, Stranger Things. The pairing of their own kid-centric show with a show that, despite having child actors, is very much… not kid-centric, is pretty amazing. Sharing […]

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 […]

Video Surprise that Will Give Your Heart an Atomic Wedgie

Posted by on October 17th, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

When I have to travel for work, I miss my family. No matter how busy I am, something just doesn’t feel right, constantly. Like your heart is wearing a pair of underwear backward. Additionally, the empty ache of separation is often made worse when I think of my little guy missing me. My wife’s a […]
