Quantcast

From out of nowhere comes this little tune that you absolutely need to hear, especially if you're into (or not into) the work of TRENT REZNOR or his main creation, NINE INCH NAILS. "This is a Trent Reznor Song" comes from Freddy Scott, whose work I was not familiar with until this landed in my Facebook feed about 20 minutes ago. Yes, this is a parody, but it's also pretty damn endearing. Listen to the song in the soundcloud player below... and crank it up!

Today is the day that BATDAD RETURNS. And, when I say "BatDad," I'm referring to the real BATDAD, not the largely-unfunny imposter that popped up on Vine at some point after the one true BATDAD first appeared. Yes, the guy that stole all of the real BATDAD's press, not unlike those fake "Batmen" that once popped in Gotham City sporting outfits cobbled together from used sporting goods and tights, doing such a bad job that the real BATMAN had to bail them out and show the true power of THE DARK KNIGHT. After all, everyone knows that the real BATDAD at least has a mask and cowl that envelopes his entire head. In fact, the OG BATDAD first appeared all the way back in May of 2012 via the webseries, MARRIAGE AND OTHER TRAGEDIES (which I featured here on The Rock Father last summer), where he faced-off against such heinous villains as Pinkie Pie from MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC, who may have actually been a dastardly pillow pet. Alas, BATDAD RETURNS for a new adventure: BATDAD'S BUELLER KIND OF DAY OFF. Watch it below...

Who is Sponsoring THE STARVING GAMES?

There is no disputing that THE HUNGER GAMES is a huge deal right now, and nothing solidifies that more than when a property becomes so much a part of popular culture that is warrants it's own parody. On November 8, Ketchup Entertainment will release THE STARVING GAMES, a new send-up from Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the dastardly duo behind EPIC MOVIE, DATE MOVIE, DISASTER MOVIE, MEET THE SPARTANS, VAMPIRES SUCK, and the forthcoming FAST AND THE FURIOUS parody, SUPERFAST. With Halloween happening tomorrow (and THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE out November 22), a special feature just landed here at Rock Father HQ, and it's prime for inclusion right here in the "For Grownups" section of the site. When Candy Corn is involved, all bets are off. So who is sponsoring THE STARVING GAMES? Scroll through the gallery below to find out...

RON BURGUNDY, legendary anchorman of San Diego’s award-winning Action 4 News Team and anchor of the first 24-hour news channel, GNN (Global News Network), has announced the release of his autobiography, LET ME OFF AT THE TOP!

Set for release on November 19th through the Crown Archetype imprint of Random House, the book comes just 24-hours prior to the release of the second film based on Burgundy's life, ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES. Burgundy provided The Rock Father with the following quote via Press Release...

Mr. Steve (aka Steve Roslonek of SteveSongs fame) has long been a staple of PBS KIDS, so it was no surprise that he made an appearance at the 2013 PBS Annual Meeting at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach last week. What was a surprise, however, is that he performed a special song that incorporated the names of blogs written by the PBS KIDS VIP (Very Involved Parent) Ambassadors - which I, The Rock Father, am a part of. Check out the informal video below, along with lyrics that I've hopefully transcribed correctly.

BATMAN has "met" a lot of unexpected people over the years. Scooby-Doo... Bert and Ernie... and now, the voice of BLACK SABBATH...

Back in February, Comic Book Resources did a feature on "Rock and Roll Superheroes." One of the images from that collection just landed in my inbox over the weekend, a piece featuring a face-off that never really happened... BATMAN Vs. OZZY OSBOURNE. Created by artist Axel Medellin, and featured on his Deviant Art page, "Batman and Ozzy" features the Caped Crusader rockin' the bass while giving The Prince of Darkness a good choke. Check it out below...
