Iron Baby

Iron Baby does not want a nap. Do you understand? Iron Baby will not take a nap.

Canadian short filmmaker Patrick Biovin depicted his own daughter in Iron Baby, with help from the animation studio Strob.

Why is this classic Nintendo game so frustrating? Because the dog has rigged it to be that way.

Predator: How It Should Have Ended


(Video Link)


The humorists at How It Should Have Ended recently took on Predator. There is a huge plot hole that I've never thought before, but would have made the movie very anticlimactic had Dutch exploited it.

Outstanding Alien vs. Predator Fan Film


(Video Link)


It's hard to believe that Alex Popov's 22-minute film is actually a fan film. The production values are excellent, although Popov made it himself in his spare time over a two year period. The budget was just $500. Matt Burns of CrunchGear advises Hollywood to study this film, writing "what’s important is that the story is solid and a lot more true to the saga than Hollywood’s interpretations." Agreed.

Oh, also: cosplay of a female Predator. In a bikini.

The Hottest Baby Names of 2012 Are Inspired by Game of Thrones, The Hunger Games and Downton Abbey



I admit that when my wife was pregnant with our children, I was influenced by pop culture while thinking about baby names. My wife consented to "Nicholas" from the Nick Seafort saga, but she firmly vetoed my plan to name a son "Bruce Wayne." We had daughters, so it became a moot point.

Other parents are bolder. Among the most popular non-standard baby names of 2012 are Theon (Game of Thrones), Sybil (Downton Abbey) and Decimus (The Hunger Games).

The Legend of Zelda Nursery


(Video Link)


It's dangerous to go alone. Take this nursery. Cole Bradburn wanted his child to grow up inspired and emboldened. That's why he decorated the whole nursery with images from The Legend of Zelda:

As soon as I found out we were having a child, I knew I wanted their room to inspire adventure, creativity, and exploration. Having a place to like that to grow up in would be amazing!

When I was a boy, the Legend of Zelda series embodied those values for me, and the beautiful cel-shaded art style from Wind Waker/Spirit Tracks seemed to be the perfect fit for a young hero’s room.

Baby Holster



Baby Björns are cute and practical but...well, they just feel odd at the range or the stockyard or the tractor pull. Andy Herald has a great solution that should go into immediate production.

Sesame Street-Themed Birthday Party



Aya's first birthday party was the biggest blast a baby could hope for. Her mother, Palwaha, arranged for Sesame Street-themed cupcakes, party favors, decorations and -- my favorite -- food trays that look like Elmo, Oscar, and Cookie Monster.

Hey Diddle Diddle, We Need to Talk



Fork, you're a father now. Maybe you didn't plan on it, but you are and that entails certain responsibilities. Man up. Or fork up. Whatever.

Baby Is a Better Ping Pong Player Than I Am

I guess that's not saying much. Jamie is still in diapers, but he's already playing well. I'll arm wrestle the tyke to prop up my ego.

Dirty Diaper Grounds Jetliner

A Facebook friend of mine who recently became a father wrote "Oh, so that's what a poop explosion is." He didn't have to go into any detail. All parents know exactly what he experienced. Part of parenthood is caring for a creature that can excrete twice its own body weight daily, sometimes all at once.

Poop explosions can get ugly -- and smelly. And apparently bad enough to take down a jetliner in Australia:

Qantas Flight 825 was forced to land at Mount Isa on Sunday after passengers and crew complained of a "strange smell" wafting from the front of the cabin.
But a commenter on the Aviation Herald website, calling himself "Frank Smith," revealed the culprit.

"Unfortunately the fumes turned out to be a very smelly nappy [diaper] dumped in the forward toilet," he said.

"Procedures dictate to land as soon as possible. [It's] very embarrassing for us all at [Qantas], but, better safe than sorry."

OK Go's Video for Sesame Street


(Video Link)


The band OK Go is known more for its clever music videos than its music. The group is especially fond of stop-motion animation. In this video made exclusively for Sesame Street, the band members are globs of human paint explaining the concept of primary colors.

Sadly, Photoshop Was Involved in the Creation of this Image



The daughter of redditor papachon sometimes wears his Oakley-brand sunglasses. She looks just like an action star with them. So, of course, she just walks away from explosions.

Counting Down the Days



This beautiful photo by Rudolf Brosztl shows a loving couple counting the days until their daughter will be born. There are three more images in the set at the link.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Cupcakes



Lyndsay at Coco Cake Cupcakes made this marvelous cupcake tableau for a 1-year old's birthday party. The head is covered with fondant and the cupcakes are iced with two different colors swirled together in imitation of Eric Carle's watercolors. Best of all, because it's made of cupcakes, this assembly is easy to divide among party guests.
