Should We Tell Our Kids To Follow Their Dreams?

Posted by , under NOTEBOOK, VIDEOTAPE

I came to Los Angeles to follow a dream. My dream led me to my wife, my kids and creating this site. But there’s something intangible and unknowable about dreams. They’re elusive. It’s a tough thing to pursue a passion. Though I would argue there’s something important and character-building in the journey of it, I […]

Posted by , under VIDEOTAPE

I’m a big fan of representing cultural depictions with as much authenticity as possible. We learn so much more and can teach our children so much better about the world if we are constantly giving opportunities to see the real deal. I think we can all agree whitewashing cultural moments and characters is bad for […]

With Memorial Day just behind us and Father’s Day right around the corner, I found myself thinking about what it would’ve been like if I’d served in the Armed Forces. The first thing that struck me — and I must confess that it had never really fully hit me before — was how much I’d […]

My Wife Just Said… #268

Posted by , under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

My wife is MacGyver reincarnated with boobs and a better facility for using words to resolve conflicts. We’ve been in dire parenting situations, many times, and she’s always proved seriously resourceful. If you look at our diaper bag, for example, you’ll see enough equipment to keep a child clean, fed and happy for at least […]

This dad figured out a cheat code to beat the vegetable level of his cute kid’s appetite. An amazing glitch that’s so simple, it’s glorious. You don’t need to know a […]

Dads Carry The Weight Of Their Worlds

Netflix & Chill…dren

Posted by , under NOTEBOOK, SNAPSHOTS

The popular slang expression “Netflix and chill” is basically what young people these days are calling a “booty call,” getting together to hook up for sex, or the prospect of it.

My Wife (?) Just Texted… #267

Posted by , under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

Okay. So, my wife gives our six-year-old son her phone every once in a while to watch cartoons or play games on. This fact obviously escaped my thinking when I sent that naughty little pornmoji man. Ehem! Even if he had been the one on his mom’s phone, while I know he wouldn’t have fully […]
