Here's a story for ya that comes from my pre-Rock Father days: A decade ago, I was nearing the end of my run at what was perhaps my last "normal" job - as Store Manager of a Sam Goody Record Store - a job that I fortunately left prior to watching the music industry as we knew it completely...
Since becoming a Dad... actually, since starting The Rock Father two years ago, a lot of people send me books about being a Dad. At this point, it's not often that I seek out a "Dad Book" on my own, but when I heard that Ahmet Zappa (a certified "Rock Father" himself) had written a new book called BECAUSE...
I don't normally cover a lot of sports here on The Rock Father, so when I do, it has to be something special. Case-in-point? The NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs are taking place right now, and with the hometown Chicago Blackhawks in the mix, I'd be a bad Chicagoan not to throw some love their way. After all, this is...
Since it's May, that means it's officially PROM SEASON. As a parent, I figure I've got roughly 12-13 years before I get to worry about help my girls get ready for prom, but I know that a lot of you are in the process of getting your kids (Girls and Guys) ready right now. The folks at ACUVUE and THE...
Folks that visit The Rock Father regularly know that there's quite a bit of content that could be considered "fandom" oriented. There's a lot of crossover between things that I dig and things that my children dig... and I know that applies to a lot of you as well. As parents, we infuse our little ones with a lot...
I am a STAR WARS aficionado. Those that are regular readers of The Rock Father know this. I've been known to "teach The Force"; I once worked on a film called "5-25-77"; I recorded a viral song called "Darth Vader is a Real Cool Guy!" that appeared on TheForce.net over a decade ago; I once had such a large...
MOTHER'S DAY 2013 is fast-approaching (it's May 12 - just in case you weren't aware), and the folks at Teleflora can help deliver something special for all the Moms in your life. In fact, they've been connecting people with the Nation's best florists for over 75 years, and those looking to shop for Mother's Day bouquets need look no...
This week, LED ZEPPELIN: SOUND AND FURY, a digital book by noted photographer Neal Preston, arrived exclusively on the iBookstore for the iPad. To celebrate it's release, the folks at Rhino Entertainment have teamed with The Rock Father to provide readers with a chance to win a limited-edition 8x10 print, signed by photographer/author Neal Preston himself. Details on this incredible...
This is a Giveaway for Grownups. Oh, you weren't aware that I have a "For Grownups" section here on The Rock Father? Well, now you know. This is The Pop Culture  Website for Families that Rock... and that means the whole family... kids and grownups alike. I don't feature a lot of the grownups content here on the mainpage,...
The good folks over at gDiapers are launching their 2013 line of Spring gStyle this morning, a collection of super-cute coordinated tops and bottoms for boys and girls. If you're not familiar with gDiapers, they're a popular line of adorable diaper covers with biodegradable disposable inserts. They rock, and I dig 'em. The spring 2013 gStyle collection features gWhat...
