The Dad’s Disney Plus Extra: Volume 4 – Single Dad, Parents Article

It’s been two weeks, which is far too long when it comes to writing about Television these days.  New things come out every week.  And we can hardly keep up with the Joneses if we only review every two weeks or so.  So it’s not my goal.  My goal is to come back here every week and produce new content both here and at my vlog for you to laugh at, dissect, and make fun of.  Or maybe just the…

The Dad’s Disney Plus Extra: Volume 3 – Single Dad, Parents Article

Welcome back to the third in our series of all things Disney Plus.  We have taken to the airwaves to broadcast our likes and dislikes about all things Disney Plus, including those things we haven’t decided on how we feel quite yet.  (We are still deciding on how we like the releasing of TV shows every week versus dropping it all at once and binge-watching them.)  Disney Plus has taken the airwaves by storm, even if Netflix still seems to…

The Dad’s Disney Plus Extra: Volume 2 – Single Dad, Parents Article

Welcome back to the second week of the Guide’s video deep dive into all things Disney Plus.  As Disney Plus has gained rapid success in the streaming market (partly because they are Disney and partly because they are so cheap), we decided it would be good to look at the successes and failures of the new television streaming medium.  We took all the things we thought we could review, and then packaged it together in a discussion about the channel.…

We reached the ending to the Game of Thrones.  Is there honestly anything left to say?  From those who have decided to take the day off, suffering from Game of Throne-itis, to those who cannot bear to talk about the last few minutes of Television history in the making, we as an audience have been drained.  Our collective wills…

Dry Bones And A Cry Out For Mercy To The Queen Of The Ashes In Game Of Thrones – Single Dad, Parents Article

***Title photo courtesy of HBO ©2019** Sometimes in life, when you watch something staggering you to your very core, you stand silent afterward. In 1993, I convinced my friends to go to Hollywood to watch an early release of a film I had been reading about. It was the second movie out by Spielberg in the same year. While Jurassic Park had earned praise and awe from those who watched it, Schindler’s List moved you on a deeper level. You…

My Thoughts On The NFL National Anthem Protests – Single Dad, Parents Article

As a supporter of free speech and the first amendment, I fully respect the right that all NFL players and other professional athletes have, to take a knee in peaceful protest of what they perceive to be racism, police violence, injustice or oppression of minorities. Even though I believe their justification for the protest is severely flawed, I completely support their right to express their opinion. What those players and coaches should acknowledge however, is that the team owners also…

The Loss of Another Childhood Idol; Eulogizing Chester Bennington – Single Dad, Parents Article

Photo Credit: Chiragddude at: en.wikipedia As a teenager you don’t recognize and certainly can’t comprehend the emotional connection you’re forming when you turn on the television or listen to your radio. At that moment, you’re just escaping, or celebrating, or blowing off some steam. You have a fight with your parents, and you have to release that frustration. You break up with your girlfriend, and you have to be angry, because if you don’t get angry, you know you’re going…
