Giveaway: THE LITTLE RASCALS SAVE THE DAY on Blu-Ray!

THE LITTLE RASCALS SAVE THE DAY is one of the big surprises of 2014 here at Rock Father HQ, a movie that I'd originally had little interest in, but one the kids and I really dug (read my review here).

For Grownups - CALL OF DUTY: GHOSTS gets new voices from SNOOP DOGG and R. LEE ERMEY...

CALL OF DUTY: GHOSTSI'm way behind on my CALL OF DUTY playing. In fact, it's been a bit since I fired up the Xbox 360 (I still need an Xbox One) for some CALL OF DUTY: GHOSTS action, and I need to catch up on all the DLC goodies, like the new personalization and voice packs that hit the game today. Among them, a "1987 Customization Pack" (which is pretty neon), and the first-ever voice packs, which bring in SNOOP DOGG and R. LEE ERMEY to narrate the multiplayer action.

Watch & Listen: Disney DCONSTRUCTED - "The Muppet Show Theme (Shy Kidx Remix)"

In fact, it reminds me of a few weekends back in 1994-1995-ish, when I visited some underground raves in the Quad Cities. I had a funky hat.

FREE DOWNLOAD: Psychostick release Metal Cover of READING RAINBOW...

So why did it get stuck in my head this morning? No, it wasn't communique from READING RAINBOW at all, but an email from comedy metal band, PSYCHOSTICK. The band has just released a cover version of that earworm-inducing theme song, and you can hear it right here on THE ROCK FATHER, below.
