@  danishali903 : (24 April 2015 - 09:15 AM) oh and hi Jason
@  danishali903 : (24 April 2015 - 09:15 AM) I think all dads (and parents in general) are awkward at some point....it's tradition
@  JasonSomethi Ng : (24 April 2015 - 02:29 AM) wassup
@  JasonSomethi Ng : (24 April 2015 - 02:29 AM) hey world!
@  robinjessome : (23 April 2015 - 09:21 PM) :shifty:
@  pateceramics : (23 April 2015 - 09:08 PM) That is hilarious.
@  Max Castillo : (23 April 2015 - 12:44 PM) i hope i never become an awkward dad
@  Max Castillo : (23 April 2015 - 12:43 PM) lol
@  KJthesleepde... : (23 April 2015 - 12:35 PM) I was just trying to clean my closet out :dry:
@  KJthesleepde... : (23 April 2015 - 12:34 PM) He broke my door down once because the knob got caught in a rack behind it on the adjacent closet door and he thought I was deliberately keeping him out to do immoral things without disruption... then afterwards he was like "Uh... sorry..." and left.
@  KJthesleepde... : (23 April 2015 - 12:33 PM) Yeah my dad is just an awkward person. He's clumsy both physically and socially and tells bad jokes and can't get rid of his accent even though he hasn't been a Mexican citizen since he was like 6 and he doesn't know how to cope with simple tasks that require thought rather than force.
@  Max Castillo : (23 April 2015 - 12:12 PM) oh i used to spend plenty of time with my dad
@  pateceramics : (23 April 2015 - 11:24 AM) (My mom is also awesome.)
@  pateceramics : (23 April 2015 - 11:22 AM) My mom worked an hour away when I was little, so my dad was the one who left work early to take you to violin lessons or picked you up from school when you were sick. I think it's all about the time. You spend the time, you get close.
@  Max Castillo : (23 April 2015 - 10:40 AM) great, mine's awkward as all fk
@  pateceramics : (23 April 2015 - 09:42 AM) Nah, Dad is pretty great. I'm pretty lucky. (:
@  KJthesleepde... : (23 April 2015 - 07:47 AM) awkward real dad*
@  KJthesleepde... : (23 April 2015 - 07:47 AM) lol Dan, to be honest that's like an real dad too :P
@  robinjessome : (22 April 2015 - 07:15 PM) :shifty:
@  Darius Slavin : (22 April 2015 - 01:26 PM) It's like an awkward step-dad
@  Darius Slavin : (22 April 2015 - 01:24 PM) They're trying to make you feel like they know you, so it has an aspect of being almost human, and being capable of remembering what you like or dislike
@  pateceramics : (22 April 2015 - 09:45 AM) So, why would accidentally fat-fingering the mute button on one video then mute all subsequent videos? This seems like poor design to me...
@  KJthesleepde... : (22 April 2015 - 09:42 AM) Darius I have no clue. I wouldn't think so but who knows. Try it and we'll see!

    Can you experienced podcast listeners/musicians/gamers take a look at this video before I release it? Let me know if it's actually funny or if I replicated the boring-ness too well. And be honest. No, really. https://youtu.be/fvea-_egvYU

    To my classical sensibilities, this harmony is 'wrong', but I like it, so I will indulge in it. Hereafter, I will refer to it as a 'binge harmony'. Goodnight. :P
