Nightline on Hipster Parenting

Thursday, May 10th, 2007

On Tuesday’s Nightline, they had a segment on so-called “hipster parents,” wherein they visit a Sippy Cups concert and interview Neal “Alternadad” Pollack. Check it out:

Announcing Offsprung!

Monday, May 7th, 2007

Today marks the launch of Offsprung, a big fancy new online parenting magazine and community. It’s a project on which I’ve teamed up with Neal Pollack and Ben Brown, and I think you’ll like it a lot.

There’s gossip, culture, gear, politics, TV, books, sex, music, food, and much more.

Check it out.

Stick with me here…

So check out this photo: What do you see?

Not what you think

You see a couple doing the freaky-deaky, right?

…research has shown that young children can’t identify the intimate couple because they don’t have prior memory associated with such a scene.

What they WILL see is the nine dolphins in the picture!

If it’s hard for you to find the dolphins, look at the space between her right arm and her head, the tail is on her neck, follow it up. Look at her left hip, follow the shaded part down, another one, and on his shoulder.

Crazy.

A brighter holiday

Friday, December 22nd, 2006

Just a quick note to say that the place where Matt & I work (you may know it as AllMusic.com and AllMovie.com) have pulled together and donated $1,436 to the Callum Robbins Family Fund.

Cal
Hopefully this cash can go toward a happier holiday this year and many more to come.

Warning: Snark-Free Post

My friend Rob just passed this link along to me. If you’re a parent, it’ll kill you. Actually, if you’re a human, it probably will. In a nutshell, a couple learned in August that their 8-month-old son was born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, a genetic disease for which there are no conventional cures. Their only hope lies with alternative treatments that aren’t covered by insurance, so their only hope lies with you.

Seriously, read it and pass it on to as many people as you know.
