Back-to-School: The Epson LabelWorks Label Printer & Kits

  • Published in Tech

With our oldest entering First Grade this week, we've entered a new phased in the Back-to-School realm - that of having a kid in school all-day. With that, there's more supplies to be taken, and the potential for more things to go lost (which has happened), misplaced or mixed-up. With that in mind, the folks at Epson sent us one of their new LabelWorks Label Maker Kits for review - specifically, their Iron-On Kit. It was time to get to labeling!

Back-to-School with Reebok Kids Twistform Shoes at Finish Line!

THE ROCK FATHER has participated in a Blog Blast Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Reebok. He received a gift card as well as a promotional item as a thank you.

It's official: This week is "Back-to-School" here at Rock Father HQ... for Addie. While she'll be starting First Grade, little sister won't start Preschool for another week - our district starting at the later end of things from what we've seen. In wrapping-up our Back-to-School shopping, the final piece of the puzzle is an important one - fresh gym shoes for both girls. With the Reebok Kids Twistform shoes on-sale* at Finish Line, The Rock Daughters and I made a special trip to check 'em out and get properly-sized to start the school year off right!

COHEED and CAMBRIA go Back-to-School - "You've Got Spirit, Kid"

Are the members of COHEED and CAMBRIA a little old to be in High School? Yes, but that doesn't matter in the new video for "You've Got Spirit, Kid" - a short that finds them taking on some bullies in true 80s teen movie fashion. I do need to point out that this one isn't for the kids, because while the song is super-catchy, there is a language thing happening - so beware of that. Check out the new video below, along with some comments from the band. The new COHEED and CAMBRIA record, THE COLOR BEFORE THE SUN, is out October 16.

Back-to-School with PBS KIDS, Curious George and Whole Foods!

PBS KIDS VIP (Very Involved Parent)While The Rock Daughters won't officially be Back-to-School until the end of the month, we've definitely reached summer's last hurrah, and for many, summer's already done and the school bell has officially rung. To close things out, PBS KIDS is serving up a Summer Safari Movie Event with the television premiere of CURIOUS GEORGE 3: BACK TO THE JUNGLE, airing Monday, August 17th (check local listings for times). With Back-to-School on the brain, PBS KIDS is also continuing its partnership with Whole Foods Market for a new collection of Back-to-School items that are made with organic cotton, recycled paper or other responsible materials - and these school supplies get extra credit: 100% of PBS KIDS’ net proceeds from the line will support PBS KIDS educational programming, dedicated to helping all children succeed in school and in life. Whole Foods Market will donate a percentage of total sales to their Whole Kids Foundation as well. So how about a preview of CURIOUS GEORGE 3: BACK TO THE JUNGLE?

  • Published in Tech

Best Buy Back to SchoolAdvertorial: THE ROCK FATHER has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

We're right in the heart of Back-to-School season, and if you haven't thought of it already, now is the prime time to be thinking about memory for all those devices that the kids will be using this year. Whether it's a memory card or a portable drive, going into a PC or laptop, a tablet or smartphone - SanDisk has the solution, and my friends at Best Buy have the selection. And for capturing some Back-to-School memories, SanDisk has the storage you'll need for your DSLR or GoPro, too (I just picked up a couple of SD cards for that very purpose). From 4GB to 200GB, there's a portable solution that's just right. Here's some highlights...

Five Back-to-School Essentials... for Dad!

THE ROCK FATHER is sharing #TheIndisposables in his life as part of a Schick® Xtreme3® sponsored series for Socialstars. Horns up! \m/ \m/

Every time I sit down to pen one of these Back-to-School posts, I still find myself tripping over the fact that we're going to have a first grader and a pre-preschooler this year. We start late compared to some (end of the month), so there's still a little bit of ramp-up time, but I'm getting things in order. My toolkit of essentials is robust, but I'm throwing down five of my top picks right here on the site - from fuel for the day to grooming, rock to play. Check this out...

Back-to-School: Hanna Andersson issues Limited-Edition PEANUTS Backpacks & Lunch Bags...

PEANUTS Brand AmbassadorWith Back-to-School Season in full-effect, there's a lot of choices out there in terms of Pop Culture Styling, and this year Hanna Andersson has a full line of Backpacks and Lunch Bags featuring some of our favorite characters. The Hannah & Friends Collection features FROZEN, STAR WARS and showcased here, PEANUTS. For the latter, as a Brand Ambassador for Snoopy and the Peanuts gang, the folks at Hanna Andersson sent one of their new backpacks for my oldest daughter (though my youngest is now eyeing the STAR WARS "Silhouettes" backpack for herself) in the Charlie Brown & Friends Design (also available: Snoopy & Woodstock). While Charles M. Schulz' iconic creations are already a big deal here at Rock Father HQ, you can be sure that they'll be a big deal when 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios release THE PEANUTS MOVIE into theaters on November 6th. Get ahead of the game now!
