Of course I can.
Mike Adamick is a dad and a writer. I guess he’s a SAHD WAHD like myself, although I don’t like to bestow that acronym upon anyone other than myself because of the way it sounds when you say it out loud. (Try it, I’ll wait.) Anyway, I know Mike from way back when we both wrote for Babble at the same time (he was there first).
Here’s a bit of the description from Amazon:
This book shows you and your kids how to build:
- Comic book shoes
- Rope swings
- Homemade goo slime
- Eggshell cupcakes
- Ol’-fashioned fruit crate scooter
Dude, you had me at “goo slime,” but only because I saw that before I saw “comic book shoes.” I don’t even know what comic book shoes are but I want to make them.
Anyway, I’m buying a copy. You should too.
What? You’re still here? Go get it already!
Oh, and visit MikeAdamick.com.
In honor of Mother’s Day, DaddyTips Featured Video is a new one from The Dirty Sock Funtime Band — Mama’s Song.
Here’s an explanation from the band’s official YouTube page:
Over the last few months we’ve asked families to share photos of mom with her loved ones and received over a HUNDRED AND FIFTY wonderful photos, proudly featured in our music video for “Mama’s Song”.
FYI, “Mama’s Song” is on The Spin Cycle EP. Buy it here.
You should also buy the other Dirty Sock Funtime Band albums because they are awesome. Links below.
And oh yeah — Happy Mother’s Day!

As promised, here is a list of Superhero Animation that you can watch on demand. Some notes/comments/caveats:
- Most recent update: April 30, 2013
- All are available via Netflix unless otherwise indicated.
- Titles listed may suddenly become unavailable… or even better, new titles may show up. Such as Batman Beyond and Justice League which are now on Netflix. The greatness of this fact cannot be overstated.
- This page may be updated when new shows are added. I’m also going to make a different page for live action superhero programming. Because I’m cool like that. And I have a Geek Gold Card.
- This may shock some of you, but I have something to say about every single one of these shows. Therefore I will write posts for each entry as time permits. Check back for updates.
Without further ado, here is the list. If you know of anything I missed, leave a comment or contact me directly. This is important stuff, folks. Read more »
