Back in 1988, R.E.M. released their major label debut for Warner Bros. when GREEN hit record store shelves. The album would launch some iconic singles including "Stand," "Orange Crush," and "Pop Song 89." A true classic, Rhino Records recently celebrated the 25th Anniversary of GREEN with an extensive reissue (which I posted about previously). With Father's Day coming up this Sunday, the folks at Rhino along with 1888 Media and The Rock Father are giving readers a chance to score The Ultimate R.E.M. GREEN Prize Package. It would make a great Father's Day Gift for a special, R.E.M.-loving Dad in your life.

As Father's Day gets closer, many of my readers are still hunting for a perfect gift for that special Dad in their lives. As I always say - I don't ask for, nor do I require a gift, but if you must get one - don't overspend. Movies always make great gifts, and one that's been on my radar lately is THE LAST RIDE. Touted as "A Story of Hank Williams," THE LAST RIDE is a telling of the final days of Williams' life - not a true biopic, so the accuracy has come into question. But, with Henry Thomas (Elliott from E.T.) as Hank Williams, my interest is piqued. With the Blu-ray out now, the folks over at FoxConnect sent over the Top Five Most-Covered HANK WILLIAMS Songs. Curious what they are?

Father's Day is less than a week away, and in the spirit of this day (and month) of Dads, The Rock Father and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment are giving you a chance to score a special bundle of some classic films that have just been released on Blu-Ray for the very first time. One lucky reader will score the VIVA ZAPATA! (Marlon Brando), THE VERDICT (Paul Newman), and BRUBAKER (Robert Redford). Full details below...

It's been a very long time since I've had the chance to play with a "water blaster," so when the folks at NERF asked if I'd be up for checking out a new Super Soaker here at Rock Father HQ, I immediately accepted. What soon arrived was the new NERF ARCTIC SHOCK WATER BLASTER - a powerful soaker with the ability to put the freeze into full effect. And I became the target.
