Posted by on May 17th, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

When kids are little, and just start learning how to speak, you get all sort of priceless pronunciations.

While I applaud my 7-year-old’s eagerness for homework and I’m incredibly grateful he hasn’t developed a distaste for it (yet), my wife and I still internally moan a bit when the homework folder […]

Caught in the iAct!

Posted by on May 9th, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

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 […]
