The Coolest Halloween Costume By A Dad (2016)

Posted by on October 26th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

Halloween is probably my favorite holiday. I love other holidays, don’t get me wrong, but Halloween has a special place in my heart because it gives us the opportunity make magic. Sometimes, though, other parents make me look like an amateur. This dad, who we’ve covered before, nails Halloween costumes. This year he’s made yet […]

When Pixar Goes Dark

Posted by on October 18th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

I’ve always been a fan of Pixar. I was 14 years-old when Toy Story came out. I was a little unsure that I’d want to watch it, since it seemed like a children’s program and I was trying to so hard to act like an adult. Teenagers almost always mistake adulthood and seriousness. But when […]

The Creepiest Animation Ever

Posted by on October 12th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

When I was a boy I watched a claymation movie titled “The Adventures of Mark Twain” and it really messed with my head. Twain is one of, if not my favorite author of all time, and at that point in my life I understood him to be both hilarious and dark. I could relate to […]

When Dads Toy Battle (Crazy Special Effects VIDEO)

Posted by on October 11th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

Kids can get pretty carried away when they’re playing, augmenting reality with their powerful imaginations. They can reach cruising altitudes of thousands of feet by sticking out their arms when speed-toddling. They’re the defender of the realm when they pick up a stick. Anything is possible. Adults have a harder time stepping into a world […]

If You Hate Cats, This May Change Your Mind

Posted by on October 4th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

Listen, I’m not a cat fan. I’ve never really liked them. Maybe it’s because I’m allergic to them or maybe I just don’t like creatures that poop in sandboxes but they’ve always seemed unimpressed with me. But this video makes me think cat+human relations could be salvaged. The way this cat shows this baby affection […]

Cleaning Gladiator: Dad vs Son

Posted by on October 3rd, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

Kids are perpetual mess factories. But, how often does a kid get the go-ahead to intentionally MAKE messes? I wish you could’ve seen the “opening a big present” look on my 7-year-old’s face when I asked him to. Well, at first he looked at me sideways, like I was playing a trick or had simply […]

Posted by on September 28th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

Did you have a dream of what your wedding would look like? Did you imagine Tom Hanks would be there? Well, for this couple, that dream became reality. Now, I eloped with my wife because apparently I’m not big on pomp and circumstance, but there’s a part of me that wishes we had done the […]

This Singing Kid Is My Life

Posted by on September 16th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

This has been a long week, too. Life has been a tough go, and even some of the joyful things have been brutal. This kid is everything. He commits to singing these ABCs even it apparently causes him physical pain or something. Sure, I get very nervous singing in front of people. It’s sort of […]

10/10 Would Play: STAR KART!

Posted by on September 6th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

I enjoy playing video games when time allows. I’ve just started playing some co-op with my almost seven-year-old and we have a blast making jokes, one-upping each other, and celebrating victories together. We love Star Wars and Mario Kart. So, believe me when I say this video was just THE BEST. Really cool stuff by […]
