Parentocracy

posted by Jason Boyett

Yesterday I had the privilege of getting to guest-post at Don Miller’s blog. It was dad-related, so I’ll re-post it here. (Thanks, Don and Jordan!) ———- There’s a hot new website — they still make those, you know — called […]

Remembering Steve Jobs

posted by Jason Boyett

When something of note happens, like an earthquake in Japan or the death of someone like Steve Jobs, I make sure my kids are aware of it. We don’t watch TV at night — I consume most of my news […]

Why I Hated the Movie “Courageous”

posted by Jason Boyett

On Friday night, I went to see the premiere of Courageous, the new movie from Christian filmmakers Alex & Stephen Kendrick (the team behind Facing the Giants and Fireproof). I hadn’t seen either of those films, and am not generally […]

How Did You Make It Through High School?

posted by Jason Boyett

How did you make it through high school? That’s the question the folks behind Rookie, a website for teenage girls, asked a bunch of celebrities. Not the flashy, pretty, Hollywood A-List celebrities, but the cool quirky ones who just seem […]

What We Did This Weekend

posted by Jason Boyett

On Saturday, my son and I both competed in a local sprint triathlon. Mine was a traditional sprint with a 325-yard swim, 11.5-mile bike, and 5K run. His was shorter but no less intense: a 25-yard swim followed by a […]

Tyler Neylon and the 50-Lego Project

posted by Jason Boyett

Ran across this today via Kottke, and find it both impressive and inspiring. But then, I’m a Lego nerd. Designer/programmer Tyler Neylon started with a base set of 50 Lego pieces (actually 58, counting some of the really tiny ones), […]

Imagine Awesome

posted by Jason Boyett

Wow. I love this idea. LOVE IT. When I was a kid, I spent hours doodling. I drew highly detailed spaceships, space stations, and the cold, rugged landscapes of undiscovered planets (complete with alien outposts). I drew elaborate circus scenes […]

Bobby Cannavale on Fatherhood

posted by Jason Boyett

At Broadway.com, recent Tony nominee Bobby Cannavale talks about his newish black comedy, The Motherf**ker With the Hat, and touche on the impact fatherhood has had on his career. At 41, Cannavale and ex-wife Jenny Lumet are the parents of […]

In Praise of Boring Parents

posted by Jason Boyett

Over the past 8 years, I’ve written or contributed to something like a dozen books while also holding down a 9-to-5 day job. Ask me how I’ve been able to do it — while also being an active and present […]

16 Seconds of Glorious Fatherly Awesomeness

posted by Jason Boyett

You may have seen this a few weeks ago on Tosh.0, who noted it as “our early nomination for Dad of the Year.” At a Chattanooga Lookouts minor-league game, a dad catches a foul ball with one hand while holding […]

Pie Pan Portraits by Idan Friedman

posted by Jason Boyett

Idan Friedman of Reddish Studio in Israel hand-embosses people’s profiles into disposable aluminum pans. It is ridiculously cool. View a whole gallery of them here. I would try it myself but I couldn’t handle the fear that someone might accidentally […]

The Mastodon Matrix Project

posted by Jason Boyett

This is such a creative solution to an unwieldy problem. In 2000, while deepening a backyard pond in Hyde Park, New York, excavators uncovered the remains of a prehistoric mastodon. Not wanting to lose any potentially important pieces, they isolated […]

Injuries and No Regrets

posted by Jason Boyett

I compete in sprint triathlons. When I decided to get in shape several years ago, having signed up for one of these races was the goal that got me out the door early each morning to run, bike or swim. […]

Closing the Door on Dadequate
As of this post I'm shutting down my Dadequate blog. It's been less than half a year since my first post here, but it's time to move along to other projects. Nothing dramatic -- I'm not quitting fatherhood or anything. But I've had a really ...
