Working With My Hands: ODO 221

2/28/2022
This week inadvertently became all about working with my hands. From fixing up my late father-in-law's truck, to working in the garden, to my many years of cooking, and even to some degree podcast editing I come to realize that I really just like working with my hands. If you want to buy some Glass Gem Corn cobs or corn seed, reach out to me in any of the methods below.

My Harrowing Tale Of Interstate Travel: ODO 219

12/2/2021
Last weekend I had the opportunity to go on a little solo trip back to Texas to retrieve my late father in-law's truck along with some assorted other items. The drive back home could have gone a little smoother...

Another ER Trip and An Unfortunate Paranormal Activity: ODO 217

11/6/2021
When it rains it pours. Barely 2 days after getting home from the hospital from our last adventure, I had to rush our dog to the emergency vet, not once but twice in two days. I also offer my less than stellar thoughts on "Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin" on Paramount+.

One Long Trip To The Hospital: ODO 216

10/30/2021
No news this week. Just telling the long complicated story of how my son broke his arm this week and the days long process of getting him patched up. From a tumble in taekwondo class, to visiting two separate emergency rooms, to finally needing surgery to get everything put back together, it was a very long couple of days.

Lost In The Woods: ODO 215

10/23/2021
Another week of sounding different, but this time I think it's from my new allergy meds. And in typical "me" style, I have a really long meandering story about our latest camping trip, getting lost hiking multiple times, and being sick that technically does relate to that first point. Speaking of lost in the woods, my one news story is about a criminal who did just that, and ended up needing a police rescue.

Too Much Talk About Genitals: ODO 214

10/13/2021
This week is a weird one. I'm not gonna lie. After some health talk, I get into our recent TV habits, including the new Hulu series "Only Murders In The Building." I give a brief garden update, and a heads up on our upcoming fall camping trip. Then the news takes an unexpected turn into the world of genital manipulation and I just can't seem to escape. Not even when I get into how Skrillex's music can repel mosquitos. Did I mention it got weird? I'm pretty sure I mentioned it got...

Singin' In The Car Voice: ODO 213

10/8/2021
I'm sounding a little different this week on account of spending my drive home from work singing my head off to "The Commitments" soundtrack. I expand on a blog post I wrote this week about my difficulty recording the podcast recently. Plus, a return of the news featuring a suspicious social media post and a crafty artist. And a big announcement about myself and the next season of "The Rise Of King Asilas." Join the Facebook Group Oddballs: Friends of The Odd Dad...

Stuck In School Traffic: ODO 210

And I got some new toys to "play" with including a steam cleaner, a wood chipper, and a pressure washer. But even with that stuff, it's still really just one form of work or another.

Sorry If I Broke Your Brain: ODO 207

Leave Me a Voicemail ‪(516) 636-7631‬ (ODO-POD1) I don't even know what happened this week. I started out talking about my boys being in Summer school and playing games. I sidetracked into playing sports in school when I was a kid. Veered into teaching my boys taekwondo. I also taught them about how mosquitos spread malaria via a very odd ice cream metaphor. I realized that beyond potty training, nobody teaches you squat about parenting. And I think I landed on an existential crisis. I'm...

A Little Show About Little Things: ODO 204

I'm a little lower energy this week. Just a bit tired so I keep things short for once. But "holy mashed potatoes Batman!" I actually have a general theme this week. It's all about the little things that have dominated my life this week.

ODO 203: How Did I Even Get Here?

5/6/2021
It's another one of those, train of thought falling off the tracks, kind of weeks. What I can tell you is that my brain goes all over the place with topics and thoughts. What I can't tell you is how exactly I got from where I started to where I ended up. I know I talked about fixing up my office and my wife's job. Somehow I got into the various responsibilities of my pets. I think I touch on my content production schedule, my existence as a walking series of contradictions, and something...

Peak Adulting and Nick Jr Nostalgia: ODO 202

4/29/2021
It's another silly brain week. But this week I came to the realization that I may have reached peak adulting. Honestly I may be a little too excited about my new rake and my wife's new office chair. We also spent most of the week binging and introducing our boys to the Nickelodeon shows of our childhood via the new Paramount+ streaming service. I've gotta admit that I get a bit defensive of my TV nostalgia after a bit. But I stand by all of it. If you want to know more about the 5th Annual...
