There's only three weeks of regularly-scheduled DLC for ROCK BAND before it all comes to an end after an impressive run lasting more than five years (unheard of in the gaming world). For those of you still rockin' the plastic instruments with your friends and family, this Tuesday brings a collection of songs from KOOL & THE GANG, TEARS FOR FEARS, and SHINEDOWN to the platform. Harmonix sent over the updates, and I've got them posted on The Rock Father for you below...
On April 2, 2013, Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star will release LULLABY VERSIONS OF DEADMAU5, a twelve-song collection of hits and favorites from the mouse-headed electronic superstar, reworked into "lush instrumental versions" perfect for your baby's nursery. The folks at Roma Music Group (parent of Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star) have provided The Rock Father with an exclusive preview of the new record, and I'm sharing it with you today. Check out the complete tracklisting and cover art, along with the Lullaby Version of "Ghosts N Stuff" below!
PBS Digital Studios, the same crew that brought all of those fantastic ICONS: REMIXED videos (Mister Rogers, Bob Ross, Julia Child, Reading Rainbow) to the web, have just launched a new webseries called BEAT MAKING LAB. In these new videos, a pair of music professionals and educators travel to locations such as Panama, Senegal, and Fiji to teach underserved students how to craft their own hip-hop and electronic music.
The folks at the Consumer Product Safety Commission hit The Rock Father with an email tonight regarding a voluntary recall of an Imaginarium Activity Walker sold exclusively through Toys "R" Us. Full details on the recall have been copied below (courtesy CPSC), and as with all recalls I have to say: Can companies just stop making and selling crap?
Last June, I posted a story entitled "DORA THE EXPLORER and DIEGO Tear it Up in a Live-Action Film!" They didn't actually make a real film, but they did do a great fake trailer. Well, viewers wanted more, and more they shall receive. A rep from CollegeHumor just reached out to The Rock Father with the poster for DORA THE EXPLORER and the DESTINY MEDALLION, an all-new, three-part webseries event set to debut on March 19th. Actress Ariel Winter (MODERN FAMILY, voice of "Sofia" on Disney Junior's SOFIA THE FIRST) is back as the title character.
After a couple of weeks staying firmly-rooted in the rock realm with Lullaby Collections based on the works of PANTERA and AC/DC, the folks over at Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star have gone "pop" with the release of LULLABY VERSIONS OF RIHANNA. This set reworks a dozen of Rih-Rih's biggest hits into "lush instrumental versions" perfect for your baby's nursery. Can I make it through this news without taking a jab at CHRIS BROWN? No.
