What's going to happen to Kanan?

I have been a huge Star Wars fan since I was a little kid and seeing these different incarnations on television: The Clone Wars (cartoon version and computer animated version), the Droid series from way back and the current Star Wars Rebels, makes me feel great that the stories continue.

Lessons learned from Dad 2.0.

I just returned from the chilly streets of San Francisco to the freezing streets of Chicago after attending the Dad 2.0 Summit and I feel a little saddened when I think about it.  You know, like on the last day of camp everyone promises to write to each other and be best friends forever. The last day of the summit was like that, but the only difference is most of us are already best friends when we meet there and we will always be connected thanks to the internet.

Now I am going to write a full post on my experience at the Dad 2.0 Summit, but this is the TL:DR version, which will just highlight a few takeaways from the trip.

Transformers: Robots in Disguise Cartoon is closer than you think!

I was a huge fan of Transformers when it first cane out in the 80's (Yeah, I'm dating myself).  I would run home to catch the latest episodes and talk to my friends about it the next day.  When the animated movie was released I almost lost my mind because of all the awesomeness in the movie.  

The soundtrack was a must have for me and I could not believe the many deaths that occurred in the movie.  I still have the cassette somewhere and the album on vinyl.  The Transformers cartoons have gone through various incarnations and coming this March is the latest one is coming to the Cartoon Network.

Deserve's Got Nothing to Do With It

I'm not sure when it happened, I guess it's always been this way. PEDs in baseball, but uppers and downers before that. Blood doping, steroids, police batons to the knee. Fudging stats, birth dates, eligibility forms. Somewhere along the way playing fair became a thing of the past. If it even ever was a thing.

It is a new year and the Fandads are all new too...not really.

Alright, a month into the new year and how many of you have already broken your New Year's resolution?  We here at Fandads made one to post more often and I think we are so far doing ok.....ok, maybe not.  Let's take a look at the crystal ball and see what's new and what 2015 has in store for us.  This is kind of like the Fandads State of the Union, but we'll call it the 'State of our Blog".
