On TODD GLASS TALKS ABOUT STUFF (out this Tuesday on New Wave Dynamics), Todd Glass does indeed, talk about stuff. The 12-track collection of observational comedy is right on the mark - and Glass' spends it ripping into daily stupidity in a good way. From people who love to tell you who you look like (I get that ALL THE TIME) to the idiots that show up to a dinner party with unprepared food, it feels as if you're riding with Glass in a car while discussing the assholes around you.

Here's the deal. While The Rock Father is my Daddy Blog and plays host to a lot of "Family-Friendly" content, I also have a "For Grownups" section (because parents need grownup entertainment from time to time) and within that section is a "Comedy" section. What I'm saying is, that if you have your little ones in the room with you right now, then you should probably wait to play any of the video included in this post... because it comes from one of the most ROCK comedians out there... JIM NORTON (he knows the metal). The crew at New Wave Dynamics recently released Jim's new comedy special, PLEASE BE OFFENDED on CD, and they've teamed up with The Rock Father to get two lucky readers hooked up with copies. Did you know that Approximately 1 Out of Every 10 Americans is Offended by Jim Norton? Get full details and enter to win below. You deserve it.

sogcrewIt's not every day that I get an email about a FREE DOWNLOAD being offered by a Candidate for Governor of the State of California. Those odds are even slimmer when we're talking about a hip-hop artist, but that's exactly what happened today. Dr. Robert ‘Battle Ax’ Ornelas of the S.O.G. Crew made headlines last year as the first Latin American to make a run for Vice President, and he's already announced a 2014 run for the top spot in Cali. But first, there's some music, and today the S.O.G. Crew is serving up an unmastered version of "No More War," produced by T-Nut, of The Pricks Nuthouse Studios (Eastsiders, Snoop Dogg) and mixed by Jeff Gibbs (Bone Thugs, 3-6-Mafia, The Game). Check it out...
