Quantcast

Disney's MONSTERS UNIVERSITY has arrived on movie screens this weekend, and while we haven't seen it yet, we're certainly not immune to the media infiltration by Sully and Mike Wazowski. A prime example? The ladies over at Yahoo!'s Cinema & Spice whipped up some MONSTERS UNIVERSITY-inspired recipes that keep the "college" theme in mind... and then emailed them to Rock Father HQ so I could share them with you. Check 'em out below...

Some exciting news just sped into Rock Father HQ this morning involving two companies that we dig: MATTEL and TOY STATE. The two toymakers have entered into a partnership that will allow Toy State to create a brand-new line of "over-the-top lights and sound and remote controlled HOT WHEELS-branded cars." I can picture Addie playing with them already...

Rock Father Rides is a new section of The Rock Father that's devoted to Automotive Coverage for the Octane-Obsessed Family... from toy cars to real rides.

While I'd like to think that I've always had a penchant for cars with a bit of style, speed, and perhaps a dash of the sly and sinister, the reality is that function and dependability has always reigned supreme when my final buying decision was made. After all, back in '97, I bought a new Ford wagon (and slapped a "bra" and sport wheels on it to make it look "cooler") because it got good mileage and was able to perfectly fit my Peavey Half-Stack in the back, along with room for my guitars when I was still in a band on a regular basis. Now, as a parent, my vehicular needs have to account for other factors that accommodate a family of four. Earlier this month, the crew over at Mazda USA asked if I'd take their new Mazda3 for a spin and put it to The Rock Father test. And test it, I did... but I might not be the most important reviewer...

I have some unwritten "rules" (more like guidelines, really) regarding reposting another site's sponsored content here on The Rock Father. 99% of the time I just won't do it... but there are exceptions (extremely rare) and tonight I have one. Charlie and Andy over at HowToBeADad.com do some fine videos on occasion, and one video just so happens to be sponsored by Hyundai. It's an "Epic Day of Play" that's about two dads having fun with their kids at a local skatepark. They just happened to drive a Hyundai Santa Fe to and fro. Check it out:

Ready Your Ride for Summer Rock... #HankookUSA

Written by

The Summer Driving Season is officially upon us, and as families start to get out on the open road, the folks at Hankook Tires asked me to talk a little bit about how to Ready Your Ride for Summer Rock. With the new "Rock Father Rides" section just-launched, now is a great time to start the discussion.
