POP CULTURE: A Boy Named… Who?

POP CULTURE: A Boy Named... Who?
Johnny Cash’s song “A Boy Named Sue” tells us something true about fathers

I love the Johnny Cash song, “A Boy Named Sue”. You can sing it; it tells a story; and it’s funny as @#$%. It’s about a boy who was abandoned by his father, leaving him with nothing but the name “Sue”. This made for a hard life for young Sue, who had to learn to look after himself on account of his name. Sue swears that when he finds his father, he’ll kill him. Hilarious, right?

Pop Culture: Pillow Talk

pillow talk

Another snapshot of life here at Pop Culture.
As we snuggle at bedtime at lights out, my six year leans over and confides in me.
“Daddy, I know God’s secrets.”
“Huh?!  Really? How do you know that?”
“I saw a wizard today and his shadow told me.”
I alternate between concern that he is totally insane and awe at how incredibly cool that is.

New Pop Culture: You Complete Me

you complete me

New Pop Culture: You Complete Me now up and in June/July issue of Village Living Magazine (West Village and Mount Pleasant editions). Watch out, this one is about FEELINGS.

“Likely everyone is familiar with the line “You complete me” that Jerry (Tom Cruise) utters to Dorothy (Renee Zellweger) in front of a roomful of hostile divorcees. Women swoon over that line. But the movie never demonstrates that she does complete him. It’s a cheat. So who should McGuire have declared his love to? Dorothy’s son, Ray.”

I’m baaack – New Pop Culture: Bedtime Routine posted

Pop Culture: Bedtime Routine

go the f to sleep

“… There used to be a time (when we had fewer and younger children) when we would have a small life raft of time between their finally going to sleep and our bedtime. As we have grown increasingly exhausted (and our children older and more demanding), that time has shrunk to almost nothing. Our bedtime routines, begun in youthful and new parent enthusiasm and naivitee, are always in danger of consuming us. …”
