parentsguidetoconcerts: I was trying to explain to some folks at work on Friday about why Tumblr is so much fun. While the demographic skews young, I think it’s a fun tool even for grown-ups and there are plenty of topics to follow around art, politics, history and music. Despite its reputation, Tumblr isn’t all cats,…

stevemarmel: I know it’s usually politics, but I thought this was pretty cool. On Monday, American Airlines flight 3675 from LAX to Denver was cancelled. Why do I know this? Because I dropped a friend off for that flight, and when it cancelled, somebody had to pick the dude up. Before that happened, he was…

Warped Is Really Great For Dads This Year →
parentsguidetoconcerts: I had a great time with some other parents at Warped. Basically our kids were sometimes watching the music with us, and often not, but that’s fine — there is lots to do. Keep in mind that it can be hot and crowded, but go into it with the right state of mind and you will have a wonderful time. I went two consecutive days: One in San Francisco and the next in Ventura,...
