Last year I put out a book entitled Black Sheep: An unconventional look at good ol' family values, which deals with this exact subject matter! In fact Kevin Lyman and Mike McDermott (both in this film) contributed to my book as well.
This is a side of people not often considered, yet one that many individuals (like the fathers in this film) are most proud of. We know them as artists or musicians or, as Ian MacKaye said in Black Sheep, the "marginalized," but they're also fathers, sons, brothers, friends and mentors. Cheers to family.
Andrea Blaugrund is certainly a woman after my own heart.
