31 Days of Halloween: MONSTER HIGH Gore-geous Ghoul - The Anti-Styling Head (Holiday Wish Guide)

Holiday Wish GuideIt's completely appropriate to end the 2014 edition of 31 Days of Halloween here on THE ROCK FATHER in the manner that I'm doing right now... in a way that I've never done before. The final entry for Halloween helps me to seamlessly transition into the Holiday season, as it's also included in my 2014 Holiday Wish Guide. Sure, MONSTER HIGH is a year-round passion for children and grownup collectors alike, but for Halloween it's just a perfect toy... and one that will be highly requested in the Holiday build-up weeks ahead. Licensed by Mattel, MONSTER HIGH Gore-geous Ghoul: The Anti-Styling Head by Just Play Toys is a spooky spin on an old favorite.

Official Announcement: Jingle All the Way 2 Arrives this December!

Holiday Wish GuideIt's the announcement I've been waiting to share... official word from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and WWE Studios that JINGLE ALL THE WAY 2 will be available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD on December 2. For those just joining the fun, 1996's JINGLE ALL THE WAY is my favorite Holiday film of all-time, so when I had a chance to visit the Vancouver set of JINGLE ALL THE WAY 2 back in March, I had to do it. Here we find Larry the Cable Guy and WWE Superstar Santino Marella teaming up for what I hope will become a new Christmas classic. Check out full details below, then stay tuned in the weeks ahead for some exclusive looks at the making of the film, right here on THE ROCK FATHER!

Covered: Andy Hull (MANCHESTER ORCHESTRA) and Kevin Devine - THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR

MANCHESTER ORCHESTRA is doing a few U.S. dates for the next week, but then they head down under with a run of dates where Kevin Devine will be supporting. So, what better way to kick-off the upcoming tour than to team-up for a cover song of epic proportions? That's just what Manchester's Andy Hull and Kevin Devine did when they recorded one of the greatest tunes from the 20th Century songbook, Will Smith's theme song to THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR...

Holiday Wish Guide: Pee-wee’s Playhouse on Blu-ray and DVD

Holiday Wish GuideReleased for the first-time-ever on Blu-ray this Fall in an 8-disc Complete Series box set, along with a 4-disc Complete Seasons One & Two DVD set (which I have) Pee-wee’s Playhouse is just as delightfully bizarre as you probably remember it from the first time around... perhaps even more so. Riding the retro wave, Pee-wee Herman and friends look better-than-ever, fully remastered from the original film elements in painstaking detail by the team at Shout! Factory. Re-watching the show as a parent nearly 30 years later (I watched it regularly when it made it's debut on CBS in 1986), it's interesting to see just how Paul Reubens managed to work kid-friendly, positive messages and even educational elements (Pee-wee ended up doing a guest shot on SESAME STREET) into the zany confines of the Playhouse - racking up numerous awards, including nearly two dozen EMMYS.

31 Days of Halloween: Eric Herman - MONSTER LEAGUE BASEBALL

MONSTER LEAGUE BASEBALLLast night, the San Francisco Giants captured the pennant and were declared World Series Champions, thus ending another season of Major League Baseball, and sending the Kansas City Royals back into the shadows of shame. But what if the Giants weren't giants at all, but were aliens... and not from San Francisco, but New York? This is just one of many mysteries to ponder in MONSTER LEAGUE BASEBALL, the new video from family music artist, ERIC HERMAN. But it's not a song, it's a radio play, and there may not be Giants, but there is a Giant Spider who calls upon STAR WARS' most famous Dark Lord of The Sith, DARTH VADER, to pinch-hit. Gather the kids and turn up the volume on that there computer box, and get ready to find out what would happen if Count Dracula, The Mummy, Bigfoot and The Invisible Man happened to play for Chicago. It's a perfect entry for Day 30 of 31 Days of Halloween here on THE ROCK FATHER...

The Week When ECHO Came Home... #AdoptEcho #EchoInsiders

My Daddy says that there should be more movies like EARTH TO ECHO. He says that the little guy reminds him of E.T. I watched E.T. once, and Daddy has a statue of him in his office that plays music when you push a button. Echo is soooo cute, but he was so scared when his spaceship landed in the movie. Last week, Echo came to live with us for awhile and he has a twin who is also called Echo. Mommy and Daddy told me and Finley that there are many creatures like Echo, and that they all live together on some other planet that is far away from Earth. Did you know that Earth spins around every day? That's how we have day and night and that's so cool! The moon comes out to see us every night, except for when it's cloudy and we can't see him smiling at us.

31 Days of DEATH WALKS THE STREETS: Halloween Candy Heist

For Halloween Week, it's only appropriate to take a deeper look at the infamous DEATH WALKS THE STREETS #1: A NEW MARSHALL FALL. The "Halloween issue" was ripe in seasonal goodness, a heavily-detailed affair featuring the artwork of Guilherme Balbi (DC's SUPERBOY, Dark Horse's PREDATOR), along with the gorgeous interior color work of Milen Parvanov (DC's RESIDENT EVIL, Lion Forge's KNIGHT RIDER). With The Organization running things in New Marshall, it's to be expected that certain things will "fall off the truck" on occasion... or the whole truck will just wind up in the wrong hands. What bounty would Michael find himself tasked with unloading in the first moments of DWTS #1? Halloween candy... specifically, "Choco-Bats."

31 Days of Halloween: DROWNING POOL - "Bodies" (13th Anniversary Zombie Lyric Video)

13 years ago, DROWNING POOL released SINNER, their breakthrough album - the one from which "Bodies" came forth. The anthemic single has become their signature song, and one oft-used in other media from soundtracks and commercials (FRIDAY THE 13th sequel, JASON X) to events like WWE SummerSlam. To celebrate the (un)lucky 13th, the band will release a 2-Disc Anniversary Edition of the album on November 11, but for 31 Days of Halloween, "Bodies" makes an appearance here on THE ROCK FATHER in an all-new Zombie-themed lyric video.
