When you think about racing, you might not automatically think of "street racing." Likewise, when you hear "street racing," the term probably conjures images of the Need for Speed or The Fast and The Furious - with groups of racers skirting the boundaries of law while pushing their souped-up rides to new limits. Off-screen, street racing is a very real thing, and there's a grassroots movement of racers that are on a quest to see just how far they can push their cars - but still have them be entirely street legal. So how does street racing relate to every day driving and running around with your kids? It's all about performance and what's under the hood. Check out the video below...

This week is a unique one in that I'm gearing up for a full seven days of travel - the longest stretch that I've ever been away from home since becoming "The Rock Father." That means it's the longest I've been away from my wife and our girls, but it will be worth it since what I'm doing is part of the greater good - a mix of work and play that directly relates to having fun as a family, and spreading that goodness throughout the virtual pages of The Rock Father™ Magazine. While the entire week will be massive, the end will be epic as I wrap one gig in New York City, then head straight to Los Angeles to meet up with the Disney crew for the D23 Expo and Disneyland Summer of Heroes. One big focus for me will be the launch of Disney XD's DuckTales, but my group will also be taking part in activities and events from Disney, Marvel, Lucasfilm, ABC Network and more, and I'll be bringing you the latest news and features direct from the show floor of "The Ultimate Disney Fan Event" - July 13-16, 2017!
After releasing their latest single, "California," this spring, country duo Big & Rich have announced the release of their upcoming album Did It For The Party, slated for September 15.

2017 marks the debut of HASCON - Hasbro’s first-ever family convention that’s taking place on September 8-10 at the Rhode Island Convention Center and Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, RI. With the toymaker highlighting their own brands for the very first time in a convention atmosphere, many have been wondering what that will entail, in addition to how some of their licensed properties (Star Wars/Marvel) would be represented. In short, this event is looking to be massive. Heading into the weekend, Hasbro sent over the full details on their brand experience activities for Transformers, My Little Pony, Nerf, Magic: The Gathering, Dungeons & Dragons, G.I. Joe, Star Wars, Marvel and Play-Doh. Check them out below!
At the Chicago Toy & Game Fair the past few years, there's been an organization present that makes incredibly detailed cardboard structures. In essence, they're simply cardboard box forts, but with the type of ingenuity employed by whoever's running Arby's social networks (seriously, they might have "the meats," but they also have "the papercraft"). One might wonder what surprises lurk inside these cardboard villages, and with that in mind DAVE MADE A MAZE might provide a possible answer. The film from Gravitas Ventures hits theaters and On-Demand on August 18, and today we have a trailer that you're going to want to see. Check this out...
Last year at Blogger Bash in New York City, I got an early look at Sentiments' first Disney Pets Collection - a series of dog beds and bowls based around the iconic look of Mickey Mouse. Now comes word that the line was a success, and with that they're expanding line - and with Spider-Man: Homecoming hitting theaters this month, it's appropriate that their first foray into the Marvel realm is a collection aimed solely at canine fans of a certain NYC-based web-slinger. Can your dog (or cat) be a Disney or Marvel fan? I don't see why not...

L. Frank Baum's iconic Oz books have spawned stories that have been reimagined across several generations, and this summer the legend grows once more with the debut of the Amazon Original Kids Series Lost in Oz. A modern-day fable that expands upon the Emmy Award-winning Amazon Original special, Lost in Oz: Extended Adventure, this new series will debut on Prime Video in the U.S. & UK on August 4, and Amazon and The Rock Father™ have teamed-up to give you a first-look at the series' official trailer!

After selling more than 15 million pints of TROOPER since its launch in 2013, IRON MAIDEN and ROBINSONS BREWERY kept things moving with the limited edition TROOPER 666 and RED 'N' BLACK beers (all of which I still have in my office fridge here at Rock Father HQ!). Now comes word that their fourth brew is on the way this fall, and it's a Belgian style beer: HALLOWED.
When you think of Step2, chances are you immediately think of play kitchens, outdoor play houses, swing sets and that type of stuff. What many don't realize is that they've also made home & garden products for many years (we have a Step2 mailbox), but that's never really been front and center. That might be on the cusp of changing, though, as Step2 has been working on some pretty innovative new products for the lifestyle space, one of which was recently sent to us for review - the StoneFront Patio Collection Cooler & Storage unit. Being so big into outdoor living, I was really excited to see this become a reality, as it was something hinted at when I last visited The Step2 Company's headquarters in Ohio back when I was working with them as a brand ambassador a couple years back. This is something that adds some real flair and function to any outdoor space.
