Links: Parenting Quotes From Tony Soprano

In memory of James Gandolfini (RIP), the superb Sunny Chanel of Babble.com collected some parenting quotes from Tony Soprano.

My personal favorite is “if she figures out we’re powerless, we’re f**ked,” which Tony says while discussing how difficult it is to discipline his daughter.

Headline Of The Day — Sunscreen Recall

Via Strollerderby at Babble.com:

Upside: Banana Boat sunscreen will help you achieve a deep brown color.

Downside: Banana Boat sunscreen might make you catch fire.

The “catch fire” part requires contact with an open flame. Still. It’s not a desirable outcome when one uses sunscreen.

More from Strollerderby:

In the past year, five people have been burned after using Banana Boat. According to the company, the problem is believed to stem from the spray valve, which somehow results in the lotion taking longer to dry, thereby increasing the risk of flammability.

“If a consumer comes into contact with a flame or spark prior to complete drying of the product on the skin, there is a potential for the product to ignite,” the company said in a statement.

So it’s not quite Spontaneous Human Combustion. But check the recall anyway.

Five Year Old Sings Folsom Prison Blues


I discovered Johnny Cash somewhat late in my life. Not that my life is over, mind you. But I only started sampling the Man in Black around the time that he came out with his brilliant cover of the Nine Inch Nails song “Hurt.”

This kid, however, appears to have been exposed to Cash much earlier. Like five years old. Not only is he familiar with the music, he can sing Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues.”

Do we really believe the little guy when he sings, “I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die”? No. But that’s OK. As Hannah points out over at Strollerderby, “After you check out little Wesley singing the Folsom Prison Blues at a coffee shop in Seattle, I think you’ll agree that this is far too awesome to be inappropriate.”

Here’s Cash doing the song himself. Watch both videos, then give me 500 words comparing and contrasting the two styles.
