Father & Son Go Camp Tripping

Posted by on August 2nd, 2018, under VIDEOTAPE

Though I don’t get to do as much of it as I’d like these days, I loved camping as a kid. My parents did, too. Which always works out great; when the budgetary stars, parental planets and children moons all align for something. The camping I did as I got older became a lot more […]

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.

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.
