What If ‘Full House’ Wasn’t Full?

Posted by on February 19th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Did you watch “Full House” growing up? I did. Each character had their shining and whining moments, but the character that never made any sense to me was Michelle. Yes, I’m talking about the cutesy Olson twins who played the single character whose sole purpose was comic relief by way of small smiles and giant […]

Milk In My Sippy Cup (Remix)

I like to make and listen to music. I’m not very good at making it, but I enjoy listening to it. Sometimes, my son will bang on things and I get ideas for melodies or beats. But, again, I’m not super talented at that stuff. This dad, however, is… What do you guys think? – […]

5 Years Ago This Very Minute…

Posted by on February 5th, 2014, under VIDEOTAPE

I found out we were having our first baby five years ago to this very minute. Rather than tell you about it, why don’t I show you… I was at a staged reading of a friend’s script. We finished up and I felt this urgency from my wife, Avara. It was an energy like I […]

The Biggest Brother

Posted by on January 21st, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

It’s hard to say exactly which traits you need to teach a big brother. I definitely want Finn to be a better big brother than I am. We talk about specific things each day that are essential to the job, but maybe I should just show him this video… How about her face when he […]

So, we come across a lot of wild stuff on the Internet. We’re basically always online looking for inspiration, entertainment and cataloguing the crazy of the web.

Our Baby Hiccups

Posted by on October 17th, 2013, under VIDEOTAPE

My wife texted (cause that’s a word, right?) me this video from home yesterday. It all becomes so much more real when you see the heartbeat or watch them move. My little boy is bouncing around in there somewhere. He’s growing and developing. Most of the ultrasounds have had ample placenta covering his face, but […]

My son has said some real doozies to me in the heat of the moment. A couple of times, I’ve responded by asking him to clarify or revisit what he was saying, but this dad? NAILED IT. Check it out. Worth the watch through the end. Would you have caved? Tell us in the comments!

We Belong to Them

Posted by on September 24th, 2013, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Simply titled “Tonight You Belong to Me (Cover) – Me and my 4 y.o.” and with ukulele in hand, this is quite simply my favorite rendition of this song. It really doesn’t get any better than this… You gotta watch out for the fireworks. You never know when they’ll hit. Even in the middle of […]

Tooth Fairy Transport?!

Posted by on September 16th, 2013, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Some dads have talents that make them way cooler than the rest of us. For example, I can be really funny at inappropriate times which leads to another talent of getting my ass kicked. I’m pretty much an Olympian of being dumb like that. But for this dad, there is something he has, as both […]
