GeekDad Report: Some Assembly Required

The hour after X-mas morning the assembly begins, this is approached with the enthusiastic glee of a 6 year old and my kids get excited too.

Geek Dad Report — Drawing the Line

Geek Dad Report — Drawing the Line

I grew up with very little hindering me in my consumption of media. I wasn’t allowed to listen to metal (it was forbidden in my house) and I couldn’t watch “You Can’t Do That on Television,” yes… the Canadian show that launched the career of Alanis Morissette. Other than those two ridiculously religiously inspired restrictions, […]

Turbo [Review]

Turbo [Review]

Turbo, the DreamWorks film about a snail that is fast enough to race in the Indy 500, is adorable, and highly enjoyable, if you are old enough to get the jokes.

Raising Geekazona: Chapter 1

Being a geek is a challenge, at least it was.  Growing up through the 80s and 90s as a geek wasn’t the picnic you would imagine.  It’s OK now, things are great for us geeks, and I envy my children.

Geek Dad Report: It’s the things you don’t see coming that make you proud

Yesterday my oldest, Lincoln, who turns 5 in a couple of weeks really surprised me with something he created, enough that it pulled me back to a Geek Dad Report to write about it.

Geek Dad Report: Maim, Kill, Destroy But In a Nice Way

What happens when your kids start getting to that age where they start re-enacting the things that they’ve seen, especially when it comes to fighting? You’re in for a heap of trouble, broken things, lot’s of children’s Band-Aids and a wife giving you “that look”. Yes, that look. The one where you know you’re in […]

Geek Dad Report: Kids Are Useless (slave workers in the fall)

Remember when you used to have lots of kids because you needed them to work the farm, or that sweatshop down the street at the age of 5? Neither do I. Thankfully, maybe. It’s not to say that my kids are lazy, well, they are, at 4 and almost 2, they make a mess doing […]

Daddy Time #2 – Winnie The Pooh

Daddy Time #2 – Winnie The Pooh

Being a fan of the yellowish teddy bear, I knew that I would enjoy this movie immensely, the trick was selling my oldest daughter on the premise of sitting in the theater and watching a movie featuring one of my all time favorite Disney cast of characters.
