It's times like this that I actually wish I had an iOS device floating around. You see, Harmonix - makers of ROCK BAND (one of my favorite game franchises of all-time), and SuperVillain Studios have released a new, "Freemium" App (free to download, with paid, in-app purchases available) called RECORD RUN. The game uses songs from your music library to build levels in which you have to run through a city, collecting records and backstage passes while avoiding obstacles and racking up points. Check out a trailer below...

For STAR WARS DAY 2014, I'm featuring a handful of STAR WARS-inspired music here on THE ROCK FATHER for your enjoyment and consumption. After all, what other Pop Culture franchise has inspired so many musical homages and parodies? Sure, HARRY POTTER and THE LORD OF THE RINGS are up there, but nothing trumps STAR WARS in the musical inspiration department. Here's seven STAR WARS-themed pieces of music worth checking out as you celebrate May 4th. May the Fourth Be With You!

STORY LAURIE always hits me with things that could easily be filed under both "Family Music" and "Gardening" here on THE ROCK FATHER, as the New York-based Kindie artist has a habit of combining the two. For today, though, I'll put this one in the music category, as she's serving up a FREE DOWNLOAD of her new song, "Who Grew My Soup?" It's all in celebration of Earth Day (April 22) and the upcoming Farm to Cafeteria Conference (April 16-18, Austin, TX) at which Laurie will be a featured presenter- working with conference-goers to write a song on-the-fly. Stream or Download the song below...

Back in 2009, I interviewed TWIZTID during my time running music coverage for FANGORIA. It was in March, a mere five months before I became a parent for the first time, and this site wasn't even in the cards yet. It was a different time, and much has changed for me in the five years passed, and the same can be said for TWIZTID, who've gone out on their own, now separate from Psychopathic Records, the label on which they spent a good 17 years. To celebrate the launch of their own webstore, TWIZTID have released a brand-new mixtape, FOR THE FAM: Volume 2. Listen below, and hit Twiztid Shop for more
