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 […]

Stranger Things + Peanuts = YES

Posted by on October 28th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

I know, I know. I don’t like it when Christmas encroaches on Halloween anymore than you do. But this is important, nay, NECESSARY viewing! On a scale of 1 to 10, this video is an ELEVEN. See what I did there? I have been watching the Peanuts Christmas special since I was a wee lad […]

Walking Amongst Giants

Posted by on June 30th, 2016, under NOTEBOOK

Our childhoods are littered with moments when we felt small and everything else felt so big. The movies we watched. The stories we read. The people we met. The relativity of size, distance and depth was always on display, being a little kid person, and it seems many of us have forgotten what it means […]

Can’t Touch the Sand – THE MOVIE?

Posted by on March 30th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

We all played some form of this game as kids. It was the sand, the ground, the linoleum: “Can’t touch the _____” tag, AKA “The ____ is lava.” I got more injuries playing this crazy game than all of my sports experiences combined. Just imagine what it would be like if this game became a […]

Horror Movies for Toddlers (Bad Product Idea #19)

Posted by on March 25th, 2016, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS, SNAPSHOTS

Just think about it. Kids films box-office spectacularly, for the young and old alike. And horror films also sell like hot cakes dripping with strawberry blood. Hmmmmm… Hollywood is clearly missing a huge opportunity here: horror movies for toddlers! Opening up an even younger youth demographic, and, since they can’t walk, this would include their […]

7 Dads Share Their Movie Inheritance

Posted by on February 25th, 2016, under NOTEBOOK

Dads speak in a language all their own. For me and my father, our language was a combination of inside jokes, movie quotes and a shorthand we found from our experiences together. I was thinking about him the other day, all the movies he made me watch and the unique dialect we spoke. We laughed […]

Villains and Vitality

Posted by on January 15th, 2016, under SNAPSHOTS

I don’t really know what to say. We lose people every day, but it’s always a shock to lose people we all know. We collectively gasp and sigh over them. You’d think decades of people dying would train us to understand that it happens, no matter how sudden, but it doesn’t. Not really. Alan Rickman […]
