THE ROCK FATHER: THE POP CULTURE MAGAZINE FOR FAMILIES THAT ROCK.

Giveaway: Win the VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch - The first Smartwatch for Kids!

  • Published in Tech

VTech KidsIt's taken exactly 32 years, but something I wanted as a child has now become a reality. You see, back in 1982 the best television program that the world will ever know made it's premiere on NBC. David Hasselhoff, a talking Trans-am, and a whole lotta awesome rolled into living rooms on KNIGHT RIDER, the adventures of Michael Knight and K.I.T.T. inspiring generations... but it started with kids like me. Much like the science fiction of STAR WARS and STAR TREK has become reality over the years, so has that of KNIGHT RIDER. Think of how many "gadgets" K.I.T.T. had that now come standard on new cars - GPS, DVD/Blu-ray screens, games, computer-aided driving, crash protection, hands-free calling and even voice recognition. But there was one other thing from KNIGHT RIDER that I wanted, something my own imagination would have me pretending to have as I spoke to my own wrist: Michael Knight's watch, or "comlink." Thanks to VTech, it's real, and they've partnered with THE ROCK FATHER to get one of you hooked up with the new Kidizoom Smartwatch for your kids!

The Ultimate Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons JERSEY BOYS Giveaway!

When Warner Bros. Pictures brought JERSEY BOYS to theater screens a few weeks back, it wasn't quite the out-of-the-gate hit that people were expecting... but it's a tough summer, especially when you're up against giant robots and all. At the core of the Clint Eastwood film is music - and while I may emphasize "rock" here quite a bit, those that know me well know that I'm all over the place in terms of interest, and musical history is very important to me. With that, I hope that the music of FRANKIE VALLI and THE FOUR SEASONS (along with that of other vocal groups) will always gain new listeners who appreciate the timeless quality of their songs. That said, my friends at Rhino Records have teamed up with THE ROCK FATHER for a massive giveaway... perhaps "the ultimate" FOUR SEASONS giveaway, in which one (1) lucky reader will score 3 new box sets, and the JERSEY BOYS Soundtrack - 29 discs in all! Let's take a look...

Summer Road Trips, Musical Messages, and a RIO 2 Giveaway! #Rio2Insiders

riotruckOn July 15th, my friends at Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will release RIO 2 on 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray, and DVD (it's out now on iTunes). The film is sort of a "road trip" story in which Blu (voiced by Jesse Eisenberg) and his family take flight after his wife Jewel (voice of Anne Hathaway) decides that their children should explore the world. In the spirit of the film, there's a RIO 2 Summer Party Tour hitting select cities over the next two weeks (dates here), and the 2014 #RockFatherTour is hitting the road once more, too! But this time, we're actually on the road (as opposed to the air). While we get started on that end, Fox and I are giving all of you a chance to WIN the RIO 2 Blu-ray Combo Pack, and since THE ROCK FATHER has a foundation built on music... we're going to take a quick look at some of the "Musical Messages" of RIO 2...

Giveaway: Willard Scott & THE ROCK FATHER want YOU to Win Smucker's Fruit-Fulls!

Last Fall, I had the opportunity to visit one of my favorite companies, when I took a trip to Orrville, Ohio and spent a few days at Smucker's HQ. The folks at The J.M. Smucker Company have been producing some great things over the years, and for me, the down-home goodness just rings pure Americana when I think of it. Last week, Smucker's unveiled their new Smucker's Fruit-Fulls by turning the Flatiron District of New York City into a full-blown apple orchard, and to kick things off in-style, they brought along a familiar face when it comes to their brand - Willard Scott, the iconic weatherman and birthday well-wisher from NBC's TODAY Show. Did you know that Willard is down with THE ROCK FATHER? Take a peek at the Instagram video below...

Tech Giveaway: Win an ASUS MeMO Pad 7 Android Tablet!

  • Published in Tech

I have to say, I'm pretty excited about the opportunity that I'm bringing you tonight. While I've given away a lot of cool items here on THE ROCK FATHER over the past few years, I've never held a giveaway for a tablet... but that changes right now. Earlier this week, I shared by thoughts on the newest ASUS MeMO Pad 8 - but that's not the only new tablet that hit the streets from ASUS this week. For those looking for something even lighter and slimmer, the ASUS MeMO Pad 7 (ME176) hit retail, packing a lot of punch into a 7-inch tablet that weighs just 295 grams, and features the same Intel Quad-Core processor of it's bigger brother. Would you like a chance to win one? ASUS and THE ROCK FATHER have your chance, right now!
