Since it's officially Valentine's Day (we had Addie's party at school yesterday), here's a pair of seasonal songs perfect for sharing with your little ones. Below the jump you can check out videos for GUSTAFER YELLOWGOLD's "Keep it Simple Sweetheart" (from the excellent YEAR IN THE DAY) and DidiPop's "Happy Valentine's Day to You" (available on iTunes). Also, stay tuned to The Rock Father as word on the street is that Mista Cookie Jar will be unleashing something special later today!
Updated September 7, 2014 - After a year-and-a-half on the Windows Phone platform and experiencing problems with devices made by both Nokia and HTC, I can no longer support or recommend the Windows Phone Platform.
1997. That was the year that I became highly desirable to women... wait. Let me start this off a bit differently. 1997 was, according to my wife, the year I "ruled Walmart." She likened it to the way that "jocks" rule the halls of a high school... the way my friends and I, my crew... ruled a certain Walmart in the South Suburbs of Chicago. She reiterated this tonight when I told her that I was going to be writing a Valentine's Day-inspired "How We Met" blog as a part of my affiliation with Microsoft as a member of Team Windows Phone. "You guys were the sh**," she said.
The love-themed MADLY MADAGASCAR is now available on DVD (order yours here) and my munchkins have already been enjoying it here at Rock Father HQ. Since Valentine's Day is just two weeks away, the folks at Dreamworks Animation/20th Century Fox Home Entertainment have sent over a little e-card that you can forward to some friends.
Check out the e-card along with the trailer and synopsis for the new animated special below...
During the Holiday Season, the folks from Make-A-Ball reached out to me about their line of fully-customizable sports balls. I didn't get to feature them on the site back then, but with Valentine's Day approaching quickly, Make-A-Ball came back on my radar with their customizable "Love-A-Ball" gift ideas. While those are cool, in thinking ahead to spring training, their baseballs struck me as being pretty rockin'. In fact, I'm having a custom baseball crafted right now with THE ROCK FATHER logo crest emblazoned upon it!
Valentine's Day is coming, and for those of you looking for something special for that special someone (or yourself), the folks over at Warner Bros. just may have what you're seeking. Through their WBShop, DC Entertainment Store, and Warner Archives, they've assembled some Valentine's Day Gift Guides to compliment some other seasonal savings. They've provided full details to The Rock Father, and I'm sharing them below...
X's and O's. With Valentine's Day fast approaching, there will be many of those seen floating around in the weeks ahead, but as a Dad with two daughters, X's and O's are a part of daily life. X's and O's represent kisses and hugs, and together those symbolize a gift of love. That said, it's quite fitting that gDiapers' new gift of love gPants (available today) are emblazoned with X's and O's all around. Launched to benefit Hands to Hearts International, these new, limited-edition gPants are far more than just a part of an "adorable eco-friendly diaper" line, but a symbol that "Hugs and Kisses can Save a Village."
