So…I just experienced what I’m going to call “FIRST FATHER FREAKOUT”. Do you remember the movie SPEED with Keanu Reeves? The part where Dennis Hopper, the bad guy, tells Keanu that his partner is dead…and then Keanu proceeds to go f***ing nuts on the bus? That’s me, except in my reality, it’s the part where the bad guy, MY NEW LIFE, calls me and tells me my partner, MY OLD LIFE, is dead…and then I proceed to flip in my home, while my pregnant wife, who is NOT Sandra Bullock at this point in her pregnancy, is driving our couch and not a bus.
The point is, I’m going to be a father and I feel like I haven’t accomplished anything as a film director or creative individual. I have made only one film that’s having a hard time getting noticed or distributed. I have made commercials that when submitted for awards have not won. My music videos only go so far. I’ve acted in a feature film that critics said where the worst acting they’ve ever seen. The last time I won a “real” award for filmmaking was 2003 and that was in West Virginia. Blah blah blah….does this happen to all first time fathers? Do we all freak the @#*%#@ out? How the hell do you raise a child, and still try to maintain the life you once had. Why does everyone tell you your old life is over?! I’m getting that damn call again from the bad guy from Speed! AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!
BTW…Miranda, my pregnant wife, was watching Speed when this happened, so that’s why the Speed reference.
NOTE: However, during my freak out, while I was screaming and yelling, I did manage to clean the toilet and straighten up the kitchen. So am I quite productive when I’m angry.

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and research lately about kids, parents and technology. One of the clearest trends: kids are using technology at a younger and younger age. Many of the biggest tech companies have picked up on the trend and are now offering products aimed at the much coveted 0-9 year old demographic. Here are a few products designed to optimize that protracted software install we call “childhood.” Read the rest of this entry »
