The BUG-A-SALT Original Salt Gun Fly Swatter

Mouse traps. Cars. Phones. Someone’s always trying to make them better. And guess what… they DO. You know why? Because the technology moves us forward or else you’d have a horse and buggy in your garage. But the fly swatter is perfect as is, right? Psshhh, NO! A super-genius named Lorenzo (who would fit in perfectly … Continue Reading

Featuring Subjects in Busy Photographs

I wrestled with the title of this post. It could also be called… “Faking a Short Depth of Field in your photos” or “Photographing your child—making them stand out.” After you read this, you might want to call it “brilliant”, “easy” or “The Best Post You’ll Read all Summer.” Or perhaps something nsfw. Please leave … Continue Reading

Dad Gifts – Father’s Day 2013

It’s last-minute gift time again. The kids have all painted the “World’s Best Dad” rock for dad, so now it’s time for you to get him something he can use. I hate trying to figure out what to buy people for gifts. I like BUYING people gifts, but hate figuring out what to buy. If … Continue Reading

Phillips Norelco Vacuum Stubble and Beard Trimmer Pro

I’m kind of a gadget hoarder. This includes shavers because I definitely have more than a guy with barely any hair needs. I know why I ended up with all these shavers in the linen closet. It’s because I buy one and think it’s going to work great and after a while it stops performing … Continue Reading

How to Shave Chest Hair

We review the Philips Norelco Bodygroom. I said it somewhere else here on dadand.com that my typical approach to grooming has been “minimalist…actually, borderline survivalist.” Well, I was talking about smells in that post but now I’m talkin’ hair.

Black & Decker 36v Lithium Cordless Outdoor Tools

Me and Marty have been friends for like 35 years. In that time we’ve probably created our own little hole in the ozone over Orlando. We’re junkies for anything gas-powered. Go-carts, motorcycles, 3-wheelers, scooters, cars, lawnmowers, weed-whackers, you name it, we’ve beaten on it. Another thing we know is lawn equipment. We’ve been using lawn … Continue Reading

Holiday Gifts for Nerds, Gadgets, Punk Rock

Ahhh…another list of Holiday gifts. Gifts for Dad. For Mom. For nerds and punk rockers. I think this is the last holiday gift one. And not a single tool on this one, unless you count the guy wearing the backpack we suggest below. Dove Men+Care I just spoke the gospel of Dove Men+Care in my … Continue Reading
