They just hit my inbox with a pair of tracks from Titus' new comedy special, so check 'em out below... NSFW, or your kids. You have been warned. Just being polite and all... Religion and the Dodge Viper... what could go wrong?
Disney Roundup: More Classic Titles Coming to Blu-Ray for the very first time, a new NIGHTMARE App, and more...Written by James Zahn
As of today, there are only 69 days until Christmas. Yes, the Holiday Season is almost upon us, and the folks at Disney have just hit The Rock Father with details on some classic titles that will be released on Blu-ray for the very first time, each perfect for gifting or family viewing. MICKEY'S CHRISTMAS CAROL: 30th Anniversary Edition and WINNIE THE POOH: A VERY MERRY POOH YEAR (Gift of Friendship Edition) will arrive on November 5, followed by THE LITTLE MERMAID II: RETURN TO THE SEA & ARIEL'S BEGINNING on November 19. Check out full details on each, along with some additional Disney goodies below in today's Disney Roundup...
While gamers eagerly await the arrival of the XBOX ONE and PLAYSTATION 4 next month, Chicago-based River West Brands is taking the DeLorean back to 1982 for inspiration, and relaunching a classic: ColecoVision. The owners of Coleco Holdings have partnered with AtGames to bring classic ColecoVision games to mobile, online, and retail. AtGames plans to add ColecoVision to it's classic console lineup that includes the Atari Flashback and Sega Genesis Classic as well.
I first mentioned the KRE-O CityVille Invasion line of building sets here on The Rock Father back in August, and as part of my 31 Days of Halloween, it's time to show off one of the most seasonally-appropriate of the bunch: The Haunted Hideaway. Given to me by Hasbro during a recent Holiday Toys lunch here in Chicago, this 317-piece building set was irresistible to my four year-old, despite being advertised for ages 7+. Straight-away, she wanted to build "the haunted house," and that secured it a spot here as Day 16.
This is unheard of. At no point in my 20+ year career reviewing things have I written and posted a review of a product on the very same day that I first tried it. They say there's "a first time for everything," and this is it... because the product in question is a razor, and it arrived today, and was used today. The experience is fresh in my mind, so here we are. Honestly, I just needed to shave today, and the MicroTouch One Classic Safety Razor arrived just in time. I last shaved on October 1st - I know this because I had a flight to catch the next day, and was getting prepped for it. It's not really any great mystery that I'm sorta bad when it comes to shaving. It's expensive, and just one more thing to work into my routine, and I skip it far too often. Having already found one razor that I love this year, the prospect of trying another was intriguing, and when the folks at Idea Village asked if I'd be up for going old-school, I had to accept.
It could be said that that Danny Elfman's iconic score for Tim Burton's THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS is pretty lullaby-ish to begin with. But, for those wishing to take it over-the-top in hopes of introducing it to the smallest little pumpkin in your patch, the folks at Roma Music Group are gearing up to release TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE ROCK STAR - LULLABY VERSIONS OF THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS. The twelve-track collection will be available on October 29th, and pre-orders just went live on iTunes. Stream "This is Halloween" below...
