By the way, for those playing along at home — we shaved!

Thanks for watching. Once again, please let us know what you think, publicly or even privately if you prefer.

Here are the links mentioned in the video.

Xmas in Frisco, the terrific Internet Radio station that has been playing Electric Menorah songs during Chanukah for the past… 10 years? Is that possible? I think it’s been 10 years. Many thanks to them. Note: the station is not safe for work listening (depending upon where you work, of course) because sometimes they play songs with dirty words in them.  Anyway, here’s the link: somafm.com/xmasinfrisko (They have other good stations as well, but this is the only one that plays our music.)

The Hobbit: Book and Film Differences is a really great blog that delivers exactly what the title describes – the differences between The Hobbit films and The Hobbit book. Note that I said “films” and “book”. There’s only one book but there are three films. Have I mentioned that? I’ve actually really enjoyed reading this site, written by someone who goes by the handle Quoggy. Well worth checking out if you have even a passing interest in the subject matter. Here’s the link: hobbitdifferences.blogspot.com

Last, but certainly not least, make sure to go to facebook.com/brettmusic and click the button that says “Like”. That way we’ll know that you like us, you really really like us.

Happy Hobbit Hanukkah!

DaddyTips Comment 12-15-14 (Video)

We’re going to try something new here at DaddyTips — a semi-daily video commentary on… well, whatever we want to talk about.

We’ll try to keep it brief and clean. We do not promise to shave. (This time we didn’t; we considered shaving and then re-doing the video but decided that would ruin the spontaneity of the clip. Also it would involve shaving.)

Today’s topics are excessive consumer surveys and the leaked emails from Sony Pictures.

So here it is! Let us know what you think, publicly or even privately if you prefer.

This Robot Chicken Video, titled Not Fully Operational Battle Station, is amusing. Enjoy. (That refers to Star Wars, in case you didn’t know. But if you’re reading this you probably did.)

Avengers 2 Trailer Is Awesome

In my ongoing efforts to make absolutely certain that everyone I know is fully aware of what is going on in the world of superhero movies, here is the the Avengers 2 trailer, aka “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Is is awesome.

Maybe you’ve seen it already. But I know from talking to folks who read DaddyTips that they expect me to use my great geeky power responsibly to disseminate information about upcoming movies that matter. In other words, superhero movies.

Without further ado, here is the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron. (AKA Avengers 2.)

Wasn’t that cool? Don’t you want to see it, like, right now? You’ll have to wait until May 2015. To quote Weird Al Yankovic, first world problems.

The Six Dollar Man – Sesame Street Video

How I found this is too complicated/boring to explain. But finding the video of this vintage Sesame Street sketch, The Six Dollar Man, made me smile. Hope it does the same for you.

This is, of course, a parody of The Six Million Dollar Man, a show I also look back upon fondly.

A Nice Broadway Tribute to Robin Williams

From Theatermania.com, a video of a nice Broadway tribute to Robin Williams, courtesy of Tony winner James Monroe Iglehart, who plays The Genie in the stage version of the Disney musical; Williams, of course, played the part in the animated feature film.

Here’s Robin Williams in the movie (animated, obviously, both literally and figuratively). RIP, condolences to the man’s family and friends.
