I know a lot of you fancy yourselves to be Portal Masters, hence you'll dig some news on the forthcoming Activision Release, SKYLANDERS GIANTS (out Oct 21). The family-friendly SKYLANDERS are returning with 16 new Skylanders including Giants, Lightcore Skylanders, and Series 2 Skylanders. The cross-platform adventure gets much bigger all the way around, and straight out of Gamescom 2012 in Germany comes a ton of new photos and videos, all of which can be viewed below...
Continuing the series started with remixed videos featuring MISTER ROGERS and BOB ROSS, PBS Digital Studios is back with a video celebrating what would've been the 100th birthday of JULIA CHILD. Check out the latest PBS icon remixed below in "Keep On Cooking." As with the first two remixes, the Julia Child piece was auto-tuned and chopped by John D. Boswell of Symphony of Science.
As we count down the days until the official end of Summer (I'm moving into Fall already, but more on that later), my friend Beth Blenz-Clucas of Sugar Mountain PR put together a compilation of family-friendly songs that are perfect for A Late Summer Road Trip... or just rockin' out around the house. You can stream the 11-song set via the Soundcloud player below. Check it out!
This coming Tuesday, August 14 - the folks over at Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star are taking a bold move and bringing a little evil to their popular line of lullaby albums. LULLABY VERSIONS OF SLAYER will feature 12 thrash-tastic tunes from one of my favorite bands, SLAYER, reworked into TTLRS' "lush instrumental versions" geared toward relaxation or for playing in your babies' nursery. Having heard the album early, the possibilities for this are endless... haunted attractions... sinister elevator music... it's delightfully creepy, and pure awesome. My 7-week-old loves it. Check out the cover art below:
As the Mandan Bride corn that STORY LAURIE sent us continues growing in The Rock Father Garden, now comes an update from Laurie on the musical front: her first music video has been released. Below the break you can check out "Five Little Monkeys," a video which features the entire McIntosh family in a new take on the classic nursery rhyme. Dean Jones of DOG ON FLEAS makes a cameo appearance playing cuica and whistle.
