31 Days of Halloween: Eric Herman - MONSTER LEAGUE BASEBALL

MONSTER LEAGUE BASEBALLLast night, the San Francisco Giants captured the pennant and were declared World Series Champions, thus ending another season of Major League Baseball, and sending the Kansas City Royals back into the shadows of shame. But what if the Giants weren't giants at all, but were aliens... and not from San Francisco, but New York? This is just one of many mysteries to ponder in MONSTER LEAGUE BASEBALL, the new video from family music artist, ERIC HERMAN. But it's not a song, it's a radio play, and there may not be Giants, but there is a Giant Spider who calls upon STAR WARS' most famous Dark Lord of The Sith, DARTH VADER, to pinch-hit. Gather the kids and turn up the volume on that there computer box, and get ready to find out what would happen if Count Dracula, The Mummy, Bigfoot and The Invisible Man happened to play for Chicago. It's a perfect entry for Day 30 of 31 Days of Halloween here on THE ROCK FATHER...

Preview: MARVEL's 2015 STAR WARS Comics Relaunch... and more

Like many of the original STAR WARS generation, I grew up on the occasional STAR WARS Comic Book, then-published by MARVEL comics. Fast-forward about three decades, and the comics are back at MARVEL, it being a corporate sibling to Lucasfilm under the Disney umbrella, and with STAR WARS REBELS out on Disney XD and J.J. Abrams' STAR WARS: EPISODE VII filming now, a few new series' of comics are coming. Thanks to the new alignment, everything will fit into place nicely, with these stories being part of the official timeline, and today comes the first look - just a small tease - of what's coming...

Watch & Listen: First STAR WARS REBELS Music Video and Single Released, Droids in Distress Recap...

rebelssingleLast night, STAR WARS REBELS had it's official premiere on Disney XD after a few weeks of anticipation fueled by the one-hour launch movie, SPARK OF REBELLION (more on that here). Two episodes in and it's a hit here at Rock Father HQ, capturing yours truly in a way that THE CLONE WARS just couldn't, and captivating my little ones as their proper Jedi (or Sith?) training has begun. With the official premiere came the first appearance by some familiar droids - C-3PO and R2-D2 - and the release of the first music video and single inspired by the new show. Check out Kevin Kiner's "Rebels Theme (Flux Pavillion's The Ghost Remix)" below, along with the REBELS RECON recap of "Droids in Distress."

The HOT WHEELS STAR WARS Series is coming...

As previously reported, there's a few different collections of STAR WARS HOT WHEELS headed for retail in the near future, and while the interestingly-shaped "character cars" may be the big draw, Walmart stores across the country will soon see STAR WARS-themed rides hitting the pegs (likely a dump bin, actually) sometime between now and Christmas. Following the tradition of exclusive, licensed sets (this past week saw a BATMAN 75th Anniversary collection, along with one based on THE FAST & THE FURIOUS movies hit stores), the HOT WHEELS STAR WARS Series will feature eight cars in deco and packaging representing The Original Trilogy, The Prequel Trilogy, The Clone Wars and the just-launched STAR WARS REBELS. Check out the packages below, as revealed on the HWC site...

Star Wars Rebels

I'm an original STAR WARS fan. My relationship with George Lucas' saga dates back to my earliest days, fueling my childhood and helping to shape me into adulthood. I've worked on a movie about STAR WARS... recorded a song about STAR WARS... and at one point, had an entire room full of STAR WARS toys. I wish I'd never sold them, as I'm now a parent, and the next generation of STAR WARS fans is here. While many feared that the prequel trilogy would be STAR WARS for future audiences, the franchise is officially back on-track under the ownership of Disney, and while old folks like me eagerly await the 2015 release of J.J. Abrams' STAR WARS: EPISODE VII, the newly-launched STAR WARS REBELS proves that our beloved saga is in good hands. After seeing an early screening of STAR WARS REBELS: SPARK OF REBELLION ahead of it's recent Disney Channel Premiere, I'm confident that this is my daughter's STAR WARS. And now, we've got it on DVD thanks to an Exclusive early release at Walmart.

Toyography: Best Photobomb Ever? Harry Potter shows appreciation for STAR WARS' C-3PO & R2-D2

Strange things can happen when you're just minding your own business and trying to do a little "toyography" - hoping to create some stylish pictures of my children's toys. Last night, while the girls and I were playing downstairs, I decided to attempt a couple of cool-looking shots involving a couple of figures from Hasbro's STAR WARS collection - namely C-3PO and R2-D2. What happened next is that one of our dogs - the one named Harry Potter (my wife is a big J.K. Rowling fan) - decided it was time to drop himself right into the shot, rolling into frame (seen above) and standing to attention (seen below). He either ruined the shot, or made it better. Perhaps these really ARE the Droids he was looking for... or perhaps The Force was strong with him? Take a look, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...

Review: THE GOLDBERGS - The Complete First Season DVD

"This is how I remember the 80s - there were no parenting blogs or peanut allergies, just a whole lotta crazy."

That's the opening narration from THE GOLDBERGS, Patton Oswalt providing the off-camera voice of the adult Adam Goldberg, the youngest of the three kids at the center of ABC's breakout hit from last year. While kids of the 60s eventually had THE WONDER YEARS, and those a decade later getting THAT 70's SHOW, it's only fitting that kids like myself - the ones who grew up in "1980-something" - finally get a series that properly captures our decade. While there have been a few who've tried and failed, THE GOLDBERGS (out this week in a Complete First Season DVD set) is undoubtedly the best we've ever seen.
