This Simpsons Remix Is A Feels Multiplier

Posted by on September 11th, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

The Simpson’s has always been at the crux of a certain kind of Americana that both truthfully chronicles and not-so-neatly critiques our culture. At this point in my life, it feels like an additional sibling. Present, familiar, and childish. There’s apparently a whole field of video editing subculture called “simpsonwave” where a specific style of […]

My Wife Just Sang… #328

Posted by on August 21st, 2017, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

Don’t get me wrong, Total Eclipse of the Heart is a great song, I love it. But any parent knows that anything good can be ruined by experiencing it several hundreds of times. Parents who watched Frozen, may have said “Hey, this is actually a pretty good movie,” and then, after a few weeks of […]

My Wife Just Said… #322

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

After my wife said this – well, after I was done laughing – I told her she just might have happened upon a billion dollar idea, there. Those Kidz Bop albums (with little kids singing covers of pop music) seem to sell like hot cakes, and I’m pretty sure if there was a “Fart Bop” […]

Toddler Waits for the Beat to Drop and then Busts an Adorable Move

Posted by on May 23rd, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

Whatever music we listen too, most of us have songs that groove us enough to get our body movin’. Or, for those of us who were pummeled into deeply anxious levels of insecurity as a kid or at school, there are songs that at least make you want to groove out. Even if just in […]

Star Wars All Stars

Posted by on May 4th, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

Here’s something you definitely haven’t heard today: MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU! Well, that and this cover of Smashmouth’s hit song “All Star” as sung by our favorite Star Wars characters. If you’d told me as a Star-Wars-obsessed young boy that one day my favorite films would be recut as one of the worst […]

Rage Against The Machine on Kids Toys!

Posted by on April 12th, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

If you a person of a certain age (and you likely are because you probably have kids if you’re reading my stupid words), you’re likely a fan of Rage Against The Machine. RATM personified the anti-establishment feeling of a decade and more. But as we got older, lots of us took up other endeavors or […]

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 […]

Metallica + The Roots + Classroom Instruments = YES

Posted by on November 17th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

I grew up with Metallica serving as a symbol for San Francisco. I knew James Hetfield was born there, like I was. And almost 20 years ago I went to the taping of their live album with the San Francisco symphony. My entry point to their music was definitely the Black album, but that opened […]

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 […]
