Sneak-Preview: The Rock Father on the Set of JINGLE ALL THE WAY 2... #JingleAllTheWay2

THE ROCK FATHER is the Fox Home Ent Insiders Blogger of the MonthWhen I first posted that "The Greatest Christmas Film of All-Time is Getting a Sequel" back on Valentine's Day, I made a promise that I'd be "watching this one closely." What I didn't know, was exactly how closely I'd be watching it... as-in, from the set of the film. But that's just what happened, as I found myself stepping off a plane in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada last weekend - nearly 2,200 miles from Rock Father HQ here in Illinois - a guest of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment - to witness the birth of some cinematic holiday cheer, first-hand. JINGLE ALL THE WAY 2 is happening, friends... and while I won't be going into vast detail about it until the 2014 Holiday Season is a little bit closer, I'm going to give you just a little taste... a sneak-preview of coverage to come.

FREE DOWNLOAD: TODD McHATTON - CHRISTMAS SONGS (and more!)

TODD McHATTON has been growing a collection of Christmas songs since 2009, and for 2013, he's assembled them all into an album called... CHRISTMAS SONGS. Being that it's Christmas Eve and all, it's time to celebrate the season of giving, and Todd's giving all of you his new album as a FREE DOWNLOAD! But like the As Seen On TV slogan goes, "But wait! There's more!" Through tomorrow (Christmas Day), ALL of Todd's albums are available as FREE DOWNLOADS via Bandcamp. That's right, you can fill your virtual stocking with some fine tunes from one of the best kindie rockers out there, all for the price of a snowflake. Check out the new video for "Santa Flying in Your Sleigh" below, right here on The Rock Father...

Stocking Stuffer: The Classic RUBIK's CUBE... in miniature...

rubic3The Rubik's Cube is an undeniable classic, and a puzzle that I've owned several of over the years. For the past few, I've had the Icon Edition here in my office (I'm not good with these, so it remains unsolved) and recently we received a couple of new additions that make great stocking stuffers. The Rubik's 2x2 and the Rubik's Key Ring are both miniature cubes that make the Rubik's experience even more portable, and the 2x2 is fantastic for kids and beginners.

Holiday Gift Guide: Retro Board Games from Winning Moves Games

With only four more days to order 'till Christmas (as of this writing), a lot of folks are still seeking those last-minute gift ideas, and one sure-fire hit is some classic board games from my friends at Winning Moves Games. Having already enjoyed their reproduction of the classic Ouija Board through the Halloween Season, this winter we've been spending time with Classic Yahtzee, Classic "Popomatic" Trouble, and Classic Sorry! Officially licensed by Hasbro, these games are quality versions of the now-retro originals that many folks had as kids. In fact, the Yahtzee and Trouble are the exact versions that I had as a kid in the 1980s. The big hit here at Rock Father HQ? Oh yes, it's Trouble...

25 Days of Xmas: Santa Claus: The Man, The Myth, The Slam Dancer

A long time ago on a television far, far away...

MTV played music videos. But rather than launch into a discussion of the days of yore (which has been done many times, recently very well by PORTLANDIA), it's time once more to feature a Christmas classic that those like me remember fondly... a clip that was seen most-often in the wee hours of night, and was celebrated in all of it's 12-second glory. SANTA CLAUS: THE MAN, THE MYTH, THE SLAM DANCER.
