30 Years of Walt Disney Logos

Posted by on March 25th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Back in 1985, a movie came out called “The Black Cauldron.” It marked the first time Walt Disney logo was added before their films. You’re probably familiar with this one… But what happened after that was an evolution in thematic concepts and it was pretty cool. Some of them are better than others, but it […]

Posted by on March 20th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

A few of us have imagined what it would be like to take a standup comedian and put him in a room full of kids to try out his jokes. As dads, we’re always testing new material on our kids. Some of it flops and some hits the mark. Mostly, poopy and farty jokes get […]

Old Timey Self-Defense Video + SOUND EFFECTS = Radness!

Posted by on March 11th, 2015, under VIDEOTAPE

When I was growing up, I got a false sense of likelihood about child abduction and attacks. With all the TV shows and PSAs that warned about it, I figured every one in my school would be kidnapped or assaulted at one point or another. I’m not saying education isn’t important.

Posted by on March 10th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

There are so many parts of parenting that can feel cruel and unusual in their punishing qualities. Timeouts, if you do them. Teaching your kids to tie their shoes, if velcro isn’t handy. You name it.

I really enjoyed Guardians of the Galaxy. Like, a lot. The parent feels, amazing comedy and incredible effects blew my mind. But some of us don’t have time to get to a theater, let alone spend more than two hours there. You’re in luck, time-poor parents. We found an 8-bit version and it’s phenomenal. Enjoy! […]

A Child’s Imagination

One of the things I love most about fatherhood is the opportunity to get down into the nooks and crannies of my own imagination, prompted by my kids. This video is a perfect example of looking through a kid’s eyes. A kid´s imagination from Chris on Vimeo. Never settle for what is there. Always paint, […]
