Whether you love or hate the first of the Star Wars Prequels, you’re probably going enjoy his reactions – they kind of have something for everyone.

Posted by on June 12th, 2018, under NOTEBOOK

I partnered with Clorox, who partnered with Incredibles 2, and I got to see it early so I’m basically living the dream!   How was Incredibles 2? It was… INCREDIBLE! (ba-dum-bum-TISH!) Seriously though, you don’t even need a “review.” If you’re in doubt, you’ll know all you need to know when the internet blows up […]

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. […]

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 […]

After freeing themselves from the shadows of their past (and their headboard handcuffs), newly weds Anastasia and Christian embark on a new kind of domination and submission in their life, a kind that has no safe word… Parenthood.

Posted by on February 1st, 2018, under NOTEBOOK

As part of the TalkEarly team for Responsibiliy.org, (encouraging early convos with kids about responsible drinking), I had the idea of putting together an interesting quiz that may even surprise you! This isn’t to highlight good or bad impressions of alcohol, just to show that early impressions do exist. Some are just seconds, but try […]

My Wife Just Said… 332

Posted by on September 26th, 2017, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

I can’t be the only parent who’s gotten caught into a rut with family movies. My son is young enough that there are a bunch of movies that come with the price of nightmares or restless sleep, so there are some extra limitations beyond what’s generally considered age appropriate or not, not to mention whether […]

Amazing Disney Villain Makeup

Posted by on August 1st, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

I’ve tried painting my kid’s face before. It didn’t go spectacularly well. I was going for a tiger and he wound up looking like he fell asleep face-first on a pile of Reese’s peanut butter cups. But kids are so generous about terrible things, so my little mutant tiger ran around the house roaring proudly. […]

Toddler Cars: Beyond Fury Road

Posted by on April 27th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

I just recently rewatched the original Mad Max and was surprised by how well it survived the passage of time. I remember watching it as a kid and being struck by the sad desperation of a post-apocalyptic world, but, because I was kid, I was obviously way more struck by how totally flippin’ awesome it […]
