Reading In The Time of Babies

This post was inspired by another post that I read at Book Riot from fellow TTAFer Josh Corman. You see I have hit a bit of a reading slump over the past six months, a time period that just so happens to coincide with the birth of my first child. Let’s turn back the clock […]

Five Reasons You Should Absolutely be (Re)Watching The West Wing

Since the advent of TV on DVD (and even more so since the creation of Netflix’s instant streaming service), I’ve been a shameless proselytizer for the many excellent TV programs of the last, say, decade and a half that I’ve caught up on once their original audiences moved on or well after the original audience […]

The MANunist MANifesto

Don’t treat women like objects, even though it may seem like they want you to sometimes. There are two kinds of dads, dads that are there and dads that aren’t. Don’t be the latter. If you choose to imbibe, and it is fine if you do not,  remember to stay away from anything clear. Do […]

If you’re anything like me, you like dunks. Slam dunks. If you’re anything like me, you enjoy watching the world’s greatest athletes soar through the air with the greatest of ease, hurl the ball through the hoop with the force of a thousand men, and then shout various obscenities at the camera.

I would attend Sunday mornings and return to the dorms, which were always empty, […]
