The Moment You’ve All Been Waiting For…

Posted by on December 29th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

New Year’s Eve is almost upon us. Yes, the start of a new year and a chance to rekindle our hopes for all the things. So much is riding on this moment. What if this year isn’t better? What if we fail on our resolutions? The pressure mounts. But what if it’s just another tick […]

What If ‘Santa Clause’ Was A Horror/Thriller?

Posted by on December 23rd, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

I do enjoy the holidays so very much. But there comes a time when people need to ease up on the throttle just a bit. The holiday spirit is a little overwhelming, honestly. So many people to think of and consumerism. Finding joy is important but it has be an authentic experience that’s self-determined, not […]

Grandpa Vader & Kylo, A Christmas Story

Posted by on December 22nd, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

This is amaaaaaazing. Even if you’re not a stark raving Star Wars fan like me, you’ll still appreciate a lot of the relatabale moments shown here, when grandparents look after their grandkid. Sure, regular grandparents might not be spoiling your kid quite like Santa Vader, and when they break your rules, it’s necessarily your “no […]

Notorious B.I.G.: Best Babysitter Ever

Posted by on December 21st, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

I’ve gone to great lengths to get my kids to sleep or calm down. Shushing, rocking, walking, driving around in a car — you name it and I’ve probably tried it. Each of my sons has very different needs when it comes to sleep, too. One needed sounds and rocking, the other basically just wanted […]

“Holiday Shopping” : Convos With My 6-Year-Old

Posted by on December 14th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

I went shopping with my 7yo son recently, and I made use of the drive there to go over (over and over and over) the trip’s one ground rule. I had him repeat it. “What’s the one rule for this trip?” I asked as we rolled into the parking lot. “No asking for you to […]

The Coolest Holiday Card Ever

Posted by on December 13th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

My family is horrible at making and sending holiday cards. Yes, I also included “sending” because there have been years when we MADE the stupid things and didn’t even send them out. I love getting holiday cards. The creativity and fun of them is just rad. I love getting mail in general, but this time […]

Dad Trolls Daughters With Google Home

Posted by on December 9th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

Listen, I’m not above trolling my kids. Their whole life is dedicated to complicating mine, it seems, so turnabout is fair play. But this might be the most technologically advanced level of trolling I’ve ever seen. Google Home is a really interesting platform. It can do so many things and I find it sort of […]

BB-8 Takes Manhattan

Posted by on December 7th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

There’s nothing my nerd-heart loves more than seeing fantasy and fiction come to life in… real life. It’s what our imaginations were made for. All our play as kids, every time we imagined something fantastic happening to us — those moments were our minds calling out for something magic in our everyday. Star Wars is […]

You may think you’ve already seen this adorable toddler running away with her older sister’s phone, but probably not the full original video. If you haven’t seen it, you’re going to love it. The sheer giggle-packed joy of this little cellphone bandit is infectious, viral one might say. I couldn’t resist creating a version with […]

Nerf Wars: Revenge of the Husband

Posted by on December 1st, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

Listen, my wife and I have a funny, and to those on the outside, odd relationship sometimes. We do things that annoy each other on purpose. We sometimes wrestle around in bed. We make sounds or voices that grate on our respective last nerves. This woman? Well, she’s a saint for putting up with this […]
