This Sunday, the Super Bowl or "Big Game" (for companies not paying the license fee) is taking place, and for football non-fans like myself, the most important part isn't the game - it's the commercials. Of course, they tend to make their way online early these days, and that's the case with the latest offering from the folks at Kia, who've brought a true rock icon into the mix. To celebrate the launch of their long-awaited Kia Stinger GT (I really need to get behind the wheel of one), Aerosmith's Steven Tyler hits the track as the notes of "Dream On" begin to play in reverse as he de-ages in the spirit of the vehicle's tagline: Fueled by Youth. Meanwhile,  two-time Formula One and Indianapolis 500 champion Emerson Fittipaldi looks on approvingly as Tyler rediscovers his 25-year-old self. Check this out...

I really need to get my ROCK BAND drums out and fire up ROCK BAND 3 again this week. The problem is, everytime I get them out, the oldest munchkin wants to take over on the sticks... and I can't blame her for doing so. That said, the folks from Harmonix hit The Rock Father with details on their ROCK BAND MUSIC STORE DLC for this week, and it's a good set - A collection of six career-spanning songs from AEROSMITH. Details below...

Until this morning, I had no idea that Lionsgate made a movie based on Heidi Murkoff and Sharon Mazel's best-selling book WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU'RE EXPECTING. Indeed, we've got a copy of that book here in the house somewhere, along with two of it's sequels - WHAT TO EXPECT: THE FIRST YEAR, and WHAT TO EXPECT: THE TODDLER YEARS. Making a movie out of a book with no characters and no storyline could've been an interesting task for the screenwriters, but when your main goal is to attach a parenting comedy to a recognizable brand name, I'm sure it was less difficult than it sounds on the surface.
