Animator/Model Maker Charlotte Blacker got in touch last night with a link to a new video that she's just completed for CASPAR BABY PANTS - the kindie alter-ego of Chris Ballew, leader of THE PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. ''We had 2 months to knit and build the puppets as well as animate and edit the piece together,'' said Blacker of the new video. ''We had a lot of fun working on this.'' Check out ''Stompy the Bear'' from the album HOT DOG! below.
Representing Chicago via Berwyn, the BOOGERS are quite possibly the loudest Children's band you're ever gonna see (until I get my Kindie-Metal project going). After taking a look at their 2008 debut album back in March (read the review here), it's only appropriate that I throw down some virtual ink devoted to their 2010 follow-up, LET'S GO!

It's been a long time since I played the original bop it! game. Come to think of it, that was probably over 15 years ago, and to think of all the things that have happened since then is just mind-boggling. But here we are in 2012 and the bop it! has evolved over time - spawning numerous off-shoots and reimaginings, the latest of which is the bop it! SMASH. Shipping to retail as I type, the new game leans heavy on the 'SMASH,' while leaving the 'BOP' behind.
Updated 5/29 - the album is now available on iTunes.

One June 2, The Hub will present the first episode of CARE BEARS: WELCOME TO CARE-A-LOT, the latest in a string of reimaginings of iconic 80s franchises to land on the Hasbro-owned cable net. With POUND PUPPIES, STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE, GI JOE, and TRANSFORMERS all enjoying decent success alongside the breakout cult favorite, MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC, could the CARE BEARS be the next big hit? The Rock Father and daughter were invited to take an early look at the pilot episode, so it's time to share some thoughts.
