WWEI'm not sure how many of you have been following this aspect of my personal journey, but since January I've been involved in a Fitness Challenge, and to-date I'm down 35lbs - under 300 for the first time in nearly a decade - and building muscle through a mix of cardio and strength training. I often start the week my checking out WWE Monday Night Raw while working out at the gym, so I was pretty excited to learn that WWE is getting into the fitness game with a new line of WWE Fitness Series DVDs from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. On December 2, things kick-off with a his-and-hers launch of DVDs from "The Authority" - WWE Power Series: Triple H and WWE Fit Series: Stephanie McMahon. I'm planning to give the Triple H set a try, but in the meantime, check out the full specs on the workouts contained within...

Operation LifesaverI have long held that entertainment, whether it be movies, television, toys or games, does not cause harm. There is, however, always a slim chance that there is someone out their foolish enough to try something that they've seen represented in the fantasy world, allowing their safety and the safety of others to fall into the hands of fate. With that in mind, I took a peek at a message that hit my inbox here at Rock Father HQ and have decided to share it. Operation Lifesaver, a non-profit dedicated to Rail Safety Education, has issued a statement regarding the new film, DIVERGENT, and what it believes could influence dangerous behavior when dealing with real-life trains. Here is that statement in it's entirety...

Growing up, MAD MONSTER PARTY was the stuff of legend for quite a few years. Originally released in 1967, this stop-motion classic from Rankin/Bass was rarely-seen and never seemed to have quite the notoriety of the other Holiday specials (such as RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER) produced by the purveyors of the "Animagic" technique.  Despite a few video releases over the years, it wasn't until it hit DVD in the 2000's that this Halloween special (since repackaged and reissued several times over) really became a staple again.

After absolutely falling in love with the CARE BEARS upon the release of their latest series, WELCOME TO CARE-A-LOT (currently airing Saturday mornings on The Hub), my daughter soon demanded "more Care Bears." Dipping into the archives here at Rock Father HQ, I introduced her to the 'Bears that I grew up with via 1985's THE CARE BEAR MOVIE. Though the difference in animation and storytelling is drastically different, my little one found herself equally enthalled with what she now calls "80's Care Bears." On October 9th, that world is going to crack wide open.

Until this morning, I had no idea that Lionsgate made a movie based on Heidi Murkoff and Sharon Mazel's best-selling book WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU'RE EXPECTING. Indeed, we've got a copy of that book here in the house somewhere, along with two of it's sequels - WHAT TO EXPECT: THE FIRST YEAR, and WHAT TO EXPECT: THE TODDLER YEARS. Making a movie out of a book with no characters and no storyline could've been an interesting task for the screenwriters, but when your main goal is to attach a parenting comedy to a recognizable brand name, I'm sure it was less difficult than it sounds on the surface. With a May 18 release date fast-approaching, the Lionsgate marketing machine is in motion, with a full trailer and a daddy-centric ''Dude's Group'' version making the rounds. Let's take a look...
