The feature is brought to you in collaboration between Blackboard™ and The Rock Father™
For a guy whose entire life revolves around a digital presence, I tend to be notoriously old-school when it comes to my tools of the trade. In an age where many work on tablets and multi-purpose screens, I still prefer to do the majority of my work from a desktop pc with a mechanical keyboard them emulates the typewriters of old. Sure, I use a laptop for working on-the-go, and I've got an arsenal of tablets in both iOS and Android flavors, but for me nothing beats being in my office, in the chair, ready to work within my comfort zone. Even here, there were some very non-digital quirks until recently - in fact, until the summer of 2017, I kept my monthly calendar on a dry-erase whiteboard (I finally switched to Google Calendar at my wife's urging), and was apprehensive of cloud storage for my backups, my habits remaining in a physical world. Likewise, I've always had an attachment to writing - actual writing - in a true form, and until recently, there was no way to bring that into a digital world... but that changed. A product I didn't even know I needed came my way - Blackboard™ by Boogie Board - and now old-school meets new-school in a way that just feels right. It's Liquid Crystal Paper™, and there's nothing else like it.
If you happen to have run into me at an event over the past few years... or perhaps even run across a photo from such an event, you may have noticed that more often than not, I'm wearing "my own brand." Custom apparel is certainly not a new thing, nor is the idea of showing support for your favorite brands and personalities than rockin' their logo on a tee. It's taken a little bit, but after being gently nudged a few times, I'm happy to reveal that The Rock Father™ T-Shirt Collection is now available, exclusively through TeePublic! The initial launch collection features familiar designs - the logos I'm often seen wearing, each available in both men's and women's styles, with numerous color combinations available.
At the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, The Honda Accord, Volvo XC60 and the Lincoln Navigator were crowned as the winners of the 2018 North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year (NACTOY) awards. Chosen by a panel of more than 60 jurors from print, online and broadcast media across the United States and Canada, votes were tallied confidentially by Deloitte LLP and remained sealed until they were announced this week by NACTOY officers, President Mark Phelan, Vice President Matt DeLorenzo and Secretary-Treasurer Lauren Fix at Cobo Center in Detroit.
As my closet (and wife) can attest to, I'm always on the lookout for interesting pop culture t-shirts, particularly those of the mash-up variety. Last night, one came across that's been out for awhile, but it's new to me, particularly since I've recently become a fan of Hamilton: An American Musical. My wife has been a massive fan for a few years now, but I didn't catch the bug until I we won the Hamilton ticket lottery and scored a pair of second-row seats for just $20(!) to see the show in Chicago last month. "My Shot" is an infectious groove, but like Alexander Hamilton, you know who else didn't want to throw away his shot? Greedo. Yes, the Rodian bounty hunter that met his end at the blaster of Han Solo in the Mos Eisley Cantina. Not familiar with Star Wars: A New Hope? You better start paying attention - this is what I found on TeePublic...
From the North American International Auto Show in Detroit comes news that the 2019 Jeep® Cherokee has officially made its debut. FCA hit The Rock Father with the official announcement and full specs on the new mid-size sport-utility vehicle (SUV), boasting a new and "more premium design," along with the addition of an all-new, advanced 2.0-liter direct-injection inline four-cylinder engine that enhances performance and fuel efficiency.

At the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Hyundai has unveiled the all-new 2019 Veloster Turbo and its high-performance counterpart, Veloster N. While Veloster Turbo and Veloster N do not arrive in U.S. showrooms until later this year (second quarter 2018 for Veloster Turbo and fourth quarter 2018 for Veloster N), gamers can get behind the virtual wheel much sooner, as both cars will join the official roster of drivable vehicles in Forza Motorsport 7 for Xbox and Windows 10. Both cars become available in-game as part of a free downloadable content pack on Tuesday, January 16, 2018. Check out a video preview below!
