Brett Singer Live has returned! Listen to it right here!
Next time we’ll get someone else to be on the air with me. Will it be you? It might be. Let me know on the Facebooks or the Twitters if you’re interested. Several fine folks have already said they will join me in my media endeavor, which is greatly appreciated.
But I’m back! Let’s go!
I know this is DaddyTips.com, but I think there are going to be more superhero posts to come. You have been warned.
This will not come as a surprise to anyone who knows me or anyone who reads this site with even moderate regularity. I mean… well, I’ll let the picture say a thousand words.
In case anyone is wondering, the phrase “Me and The Avengers DVD Combo Pack = happy dad” is still true. I could watch that movie almost any time. Luckily there is a steady supply of other stuff to watch, some that even doesn’t have superheroes in it like Stranger Things. (Stranger Things is all the things, by the way. I’ve already watched it twice. It’s good the second time around, in case you were on the fence about watching it again.)
(The image above is totally unrelated and is included just to freak you out a little.)
I will be doing a better job of tying the superhero stuff into parenting and related topics. Not that this is necessary. To paraphrase Whit Honea from way back when we both blogged for Babble.com, superhero movies are relevant to a parenting blog because I’m a parent and I like superhero movies. (Whit’s kind of awesome; check him out here, and also everywhere.) I also watch them with my kids. The values they impart are important. Not that it’s all about values. It’s also about fun, and sharing something fun. The world is a rough place. There’s a reason it’s called “escapism.” But while escaping, it is worth noting that sometimes there are good values being imparted. Acceptance of others (Vision and Scarlet Witch). The complications of friendships (Captain America: Civil War). How awesome and weird it would be to have super-powers at age 15 (Spider-Man). OK, that last one isn’t really a value. But those three are all from the same movie. I’ve got more than that, trust me. Because with great power, there must also come great responsibility. (Ahem.)
Face front True Believers! Welcome to the DaddyTips age of Superhero Parenting! Trust me, it’ll be a fun ride.

I just looked and realized I haven’t written a post in awhile. Sorry about that.
I’ve been busy with a few things, some of those involving the children. (See “Where has Dad been? Busy parenting“.)
Admittedly, I’ve also been, like, watching football. It’s NFL season, y’know.
And maybe I’ve been a little lazy sometimes. Hence the cat picture. I’m not usually a cat picture guy but I was looking for a public domain image to use and came across this film from the Prelinger Archives titled “Private Life of a Cat” from 1947. Yes I’m serious. Watch it here.
Happy almost Halloween!
Got some posts in the queue that I will get to you very soon. Avanti!
I will be appearing on TV tomorrow, via Skype, on Fox 5 DC. Those not in DC can stream it live on MyFoxDC.com. My segment is scheduled for 9:15am.
The topic? Apps for paranoid parents, which I wrote about for Parents.com here.
Again, to watch me, Brett Singer, in all my DaddyTips glory, visit MyFoxDC.com tomorrow, Friday March 13, around 9:15am and click on the “Watch Live” link.
This is Land of Blue #1. For the record, the character named Jim is a girl. The rest you should be able to figure out on your own. Enjoy.
Brett Singer Live, the online radio show that I’ve been doing for awhile now, will soon return to the airwaves of the Interweb. You are excited. I know. I can tell.
My most recent show was back in November when I interviewed Neal Pollack, author of Jewball. I’m bringing the show back because it’s become rather popular, with literally thousands of downloads every month. Who am I to deny the will of the people?
