The Craftsman Club wants to know: Are YOU Made to Race? (Giveaway)

Craftsman CrewTHE ROCK FATHER has partnered with Sears as a paid member of the Craftsman Crew. Are you #MADEtoRACE?

As a grownup, one thing I really wish I had the skill to do is fix up some old cars and take them out for a little old-school racing action. The only engine that I ever personally rebuilt was one for a go-kart, and I did that back in high school. I wish I'd learned more years back, but one thing I know for sure is that it's not only vehicles that can be "Made to Race," but people as well. Looking back, I'm fairly confident that I was #MADEtoRACE from the get-go - circa 1976. Just look at that little Renault Racing suit...

The HOME ALONE 25th Anniversary Collection is Coming Home for the Holidays!

2015 Holiday Wish GuideWhen it comes to holiday movies, its no secret that I have a real soft spot for them. One of the greatest is also very much a "Chicago" movie, and one written by a local icon - the late John Hughes. HOME ALONE turns 25 this year, and the folks at 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment are releasing a collection that I'm officially adding to my 2015 Holiday Wish Guide here on THE ROCK FATHER - the HOME ALONE 25th Anniversary Ultimate Collection! This new set features all five films in the HOME ALONE franchise, along with some cool collectibles that come packed-in a paint can.

SOFIA THE FIRST gets BRAVE - Merida Comes to Enchancia...

This October, a familiar face is coming to Enchancia... Merida from Disney•Pixar's BRAVE. On Monday, October 12, Sofia's Aunt Tilly returns to give her a gift that will unlock a secret world and appoint Sofia storykeeper of magical books in SOFIA THE FIRST: THE MAGIC LIBRARY, the first episode of a four-part story arc, debuting on Disney Channel (9:00 a.m., ET/PT) and Disney Junior (7:00 p.m., ET/PT).

Sock Puppet Parody is Back: PANTERA's "Walk" Gets Puppetized...

The folks behind Sock Puppet Parody are back, and this time they're keeping the Texas vibe alive with a send-up of PANTERA's "Walk." Performed by HAMPTERA (of "Folding Hostile" fame), this one's got the seal of approval from PANTERA drummer Vinnie Paul himself! Check out the new clip below, and watch for Vinnie (currently busy with HELLYEAH) at the end. Bonus Fact: Back in the early 90s, my friends and I used to call Dime & Vinnie's house to hear their "PANTERA Hotline!" answering machine messages. Sometimes we'd leave a message as a goof.

Fall Fun is Coming to HERSHEY'S CHOCOLATE WORLD...

Last year, we had a sweet adventure at HERSHEY'S CHOCOLATE WORLD in Pennsylvania. If we lived closer, we'd certainly be back for this - their latest round of seasonal fun, which just so happens to be for my favorite season of all: Fall. Hershey's Chocolate World is launching a full assortment of festive activities for Fall and Halloween, and the details just rolled into Rock Father HQ. Check 'em out below...
