A Son and The Masters

On some base level it’s always been about the search for a connection. I’ve got two older brothers, 11 and 12 years my elder. One has the business he took over from our dad. That’s a tie that binds in ways on an off a Quickbooks payroll file.  The other […]

Please, god, if you’re awake and happen to have one of the TVs tuned to this archery supply place in the middle of Amish country (you’re cool with them, right?) right now, please please please help send one of her arrows through one god damn (shit, sorry about that) balloon. […]

Watch This: The Que Pastas “Helen’s Song” Music Video

I’ve previously written about the sweet, sentimental greatness of certain musically-inclined papa’s singing about their children. Most notably, see Mr. Whirly’s “Mooshpie” music video. It’s a ditty I called the best parenting song ever. Here’s another lovely parenting song and music video from The Que Pastas. “Helen’s Song” is a […]

Tough and Tender Parenting

It has come to my attention that I am more like jerky than previously believed, and not only because I’m sometimes a jerk. Anyway, that’d be WAY too obvious a joke. And that’s not my style. I should be clear here, before we go any further down this curious road: […]
