“Wish I Was Here” and the Incredible Importance of Today

Is it enough to merely show your children how much you love them? Or do the words you speak provide a different kind of encouragement and validation that is equally important?

But, still, it can be an easy thing to overlook.

Lord Business’ Evil Lair… My Man Cave?

I didn’t believe it at first. In fact, it didn’t even dawn on me until the second time we watched it.

I am Lord Business.

A part of me wishes that meant that I’ve discovered that I morph into comedic superstar actor Will Ferrell under every full moon. But, unfortunately for both myself and my kids, the reality is much worse.

No, the truth is that I embody the selfish, creativity-crushing spirit of President Lord Business.

Dad Saves The Day (Or “3 Things I Didn’t Learn from Transformers 4″)

You may have heard by now that Transformers: Age of Extinction has spent its time in theaters crushing box office competition like so many Decepticon tin cans. If you hadn’t heard that already, it’s probably because you’ve seen the movie and your brain is still recovering. Mine certainly still is. Only yesterday did the hemorrhaging finally stop.

I’m all for some Autobot v. Decepticon action every now and again, and I can’t complain about the inclusion of a new Boba Fett-ian galactic bounty hounter.
