This auto-tune masterpiece is currently my favorite song. I love the desperation of Katie Couric to generate attention, Manti’s childishness, and his dad’s rhyming bass. Pure genius.
Hot young Japanese dad from the early 1930s
The story about cooking expert Yoshiko Tatsumi was certainly not about this, but I couldn’t help noticing how hot her “pre-war construction industry executive” daddy was in the early 1930s. Why don’t today’s men look to that fine example of manhood?
Stop the presses! Pot helps fatherhood
Being stoned made a San Francisco man (not the one in photo above) a better father, as he writes in the New York Times. As a child-free adult with a not innocent interest in dads, I will take note of this revelation. Photo source: Things Stoners Like.
Beginners movie trailer
Check out this movie trailer. The movie Beginners, starring Ewan McGregor, explores how an adult son’s relationship with his father improves when dad comes out. Wonder if it will come to Tokyo.
“Hey Dad, can you help me”
Who knew you could offend the Catholic Church in just 10 seconds? And just in time for Easter Sunday, my favorite Jesus holiday. I also heard that Lady Gaga will be releasing her video single Judas on that special day!
Young dad with chipmunk hat catches my attention
I have a small fetish for young dads. There’s something about watching them care for their toddlers and young children that adds a certain sexiness. (Same for the hot children’s swim instructors at the pool I swim at). Dads in Japan can be very young. Please don’t call me gramps yet, but clearly this festish is inter-generational. I love the infantalizing gesture of this young countryside dad with his chipmunk hat attached to his belt. Sweet!
I couldn’t resist immediately posting this image of film hunk Benjamin Bratt in his new movie La Mission, playing a blue collar San Francisco dad who can’t accept his son being gay. Just seeing this image makes me a little nostalgic for the old neighborhood. なつかしい！
