The Rock Father"You dress like you're 15."

The first time I recall hearing my wife say that, I'd just purchased a pair of Ken Block signature edition DC Shoes from PacSun (pictured below), and a long, green wallet chain from Hot Topic. That was probably about two years ago. I'll be 37 in just a few weeks, and I still have the shoes, but the wallet chain is a memory. If my wife has a gripe with me, it's definitely about the way I dress. She'd like me to class it up a bit, and there's a few times I've tried.

Both songs were recorded and engineered by Chris Wisco (LAZARUS A.D., JUNGLE ROT) at Belle City Sound in Racine, WI. Wisco previously helmed the band’s 2010 release, THE UNHOLY MANIPULATOR, which was mixed by James Murphy (DEATH, TESTAMENT, OBITUARY).

It's 4pm on Black Friday here at Rock Father HQ, and despite an itch to go to Kohls last night, I did not brave the bargain-hungry hordes for some holiday shopping savings. Instead, I slept in, have spent much of the afternoon playing with my daughters, ate some Thanksgiving leftovers, and have been sifting through the countless Black Friday promotions that have been hitting my inbox in hopes of being posted here on The Rock Father. I like to save readers a few bucks while making a few in the process, so here's the roundup of deals that have landed here this afternoon. Don't forget, you can find even more great savings and coupon codes in the "Shopping Deals for Families" section right here on The Rock Father.
