Fatherhood is all seat-of-your-pants decisions. Whenever I think I’m a couple of steps ahead of my son, he proves to me that I’m not. As a dude that reads tons of dad blogs and other parenting articles, I typically think I’ve got a one-up on my son. And then my son will say or do something that takes me to a knee and makes me rethink everything I know about him.
Okay, so let’s flashback. Before Mother’s Day, Cardstore and ad agency Mullen made a video that I wasn’t the biggest fan of. I won’t go into it here because dude, I already did. So, if you’d like, you can read it HERE.
The great news is that Cardstore listened to criticisms and was excited to share their Father’s Day video with a bunch of bloggers – and I like it a lot more than the previous offering.
UPI‘s got a story up (spoiler alert: you don’t need to go there, I’m about to explain it here) about a Canadian school that’s done-away with Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.
The school – Astral Drive Elementary School in Nova Scotia – instead holds “Family Day” on May 15 to include non-traditional families.
We don’t know much about Thailand, but what we do know is that the date of Father’s Day is always determined by the Thai King’s birthday. The current King, Bhumibol Adulyadej, celebrates his birthday on December 5, so…you get the idea. Happy Father’s Day, Thailand (it’s tomorrow there today, FYI).
This Sunday, September 2nd is Father’s Day in Australia, and word around the outback is that dads are prepared to receive gifts valued at less than half of the value of those bought for Mother’s Day.
While moms (or mums, as they call’em) received Mother’s Day gifts with an average value of $60, dads are expected to see gifts valued around $28, says IBISWorld.
You may have been daddy’s little helper – but did you ever travel back in time to help your dad nail your mom? Didn’t think so.
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there, whether you were from the 8, 16, or 32-bit generations – or predated us all with – gasp – pen and paper games.
Being a father is immensely important, and you’re carrying on a great tradition that helps make the world a better place.
You might have seen these cards bouncing around the internets for some time now and well, so have we. We did a little digging and found the top 8 Father’s Day Someecards that you can throw to another father or slap on your dad’s wall. Hell, we even created one!
Ask a dad what he wants for Father’s Day, and he’ll tell you “oh, anything” or “nothing, I’m happy just spending time with you.” Lies. What that guy wants (and needs) is a Turtle Beach headset for his gaming pleasure. Specifically, the Turtle Beach Ear Force X32 (XBox 360) are a great gift for a gamer-dad. I mean, sure, you could just buy him a gift card to Best Buy (or Future Shop for our Canadian readers), but the dude’s just going to end up buying these for himself.
And if you’re a dad, stop playing coy and just tell your family that you want to ear-hump these headphones so bad that it’s effecting your kill-death ratio.
Now, before we get into it – Turtle Beach does indeed have many headsets – and in fact, many headsets above the X32 in quality. But if you’re looking for a good balance between price and power, the X32 is what you’re looking for.
