You know, since becoming The Rock Father, getting to the movie theater just isn't a regular occurence anymore. I used to be immersed in movies 24/7 (I even used to work on them), but as a work-at-home Dad with a 3-year-old and an infant, I get behind real fast. Case-in-point: SKYFALL, the latest adventure to feature Daniel Craig as JAMES BOND. I love Bond. In fact, I don't think I missed a Bond film in theaters from LICENSE TO KILL (1989) through QUANTUM OF SOLACE (2008). In '09 I became a Dad, and I missed 2012's SKYFALL. Now it's coming home, so I can finally watch it! Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment sent over the full details, and I'm sharing it with you below...

This could be the biggest Lullaby record of the year. Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star just sent over details on Lullaby Pop HitZzz Vol 1, a new collection of 15 songs from the likes of Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber, Foster the People, Owl City, and more - all given the ''lush instrumental'' lullaby treatment.

As part of a balanced musical diet, there's a little of everything here from mainstream rock to pop to pop punk to black metal, hip-hop, indie rock, and more. This is all stuff that has landed in The Rock Father's inbox over the past few days, and I want to cover as much of it as possible. Like what you see? Links are provided to learn more. Let's go...

The 54th Annual Grammy Awards have just concluded on CBS, and I'm one of the camp that views the Grammys as a celebration of an organization and votership that is completely irrelevant, overly self-congratulatory, narrow-minded, boring, and predictable year after year. Despite those views, I thought it might be fun to compile a list of of music inspired by some of the night's biggest winners, but reworked and performed for the smallest members of your family: newborn infants. Here's a run-down of lullaby renditions of select winner's songs that are currently available on iTunes.
