Why did I not think of this a few years ago? I mean, I was actually on the set of BATMAN BEGINS back in 2004 and stuck my head inside the Tumbler for a few... but that was in my pre-parenting days, and the thought of crafting a baby stroller based upon Christopher Nolan's vision of The Batmobile didn't even cross my mind. But for one lucky Bat-fan, his little Caped Crusader is riding in-style thanks to the Hollywood FX crew behind SUPER-FAN BUILDS. On this week's show, they've taken an Evenflo car seat and surrounded it by all the Tumbler goodness that one would need for fighting thugs in Lil' Gotham. Check this out...
The Rock Father is a 2014 BuyCostumes.com #OrangeTuesday Halloween Ambassador.
Some say that "Life is Better in Costume," and those who adhere to that mantra are, indeed, correct. It's fun to play dress-up, and fostering imaginative play with my girls is something that I've spoken of often here on THE ROCK FATHER. But you don't have to be a kid to play dress-up, and the legions of cosplayers and casual fans that gear-up for comic-cons and special events year-round are a testament to that. And, so what if Halloween is still two weeks away? There's nothing that says a grown man can't hit the town dressed as Batman (just ask Ben Affleck, who's been roaming Detroit along with Henry Cavill shooting BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE), to the surprise, delight, and in some cases, confusion of those whom he may encounter. That's why this month, THE BATROCKFATHER BEGINS RISES.

Stepping out of family-friendly and back into Dad Zone here, it's no secret that I've been a big fan of the CALL OF DUTY franchise. That said, I thought the last installment needed some work, but the forthcoming CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS II looks to be just what the doctor ordered. After a long day of changing diapers and prepping bottles, sometimes a guy just has to blow up some pixels, and with a story by David S. Goyer (co-writer of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES) and music by Trent Reznor (NINE INCH NAILS), it would seem the fans have been listened to. Check out the new 'Villain" trailer below. The Rock Father will be playing this come November...
