Rides: THE ROCK FATHER vs. The FERRARI F430 at The Xtreme Xperience
"When your friends ask you how fast you went, tell them 'I went as fast as I could.'" That was the final bit of advice given by Xtreme Xperience Chief Instructor Brad Pines at the close of an instructional session held in a classroom overlooking the pit area of the North Course of the Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, Illinois on Saturday. It was there that I, along with a handful of other early morning drivers received some brief, but important lessons prior to taking to the track in some of the World's finest vehicles - Supercars. For me, it would be the Ferrari F430 - a 483 horsepower hand-crafted vehicle with a top speed of 196 mph... but it wouldn't be the first time that I'd take to the track in Joliet. For that, we have to spin things back to 1978...McLarenAudiMercedesAutobahn Country ClubXtreme XperienceRacingFerrariLamborghiniSupercarsNissanNeed for SpeedJolietAston MartinChicago

On September 23, Universal Studios Home Entertainment will release NEIGHBORS on Blu-ray and DVD. The comedy about a pair of new parents clashing with a local fraternity scored big with audiences, and while SETH ROGEN and ZAC EFRON may have scored top billing on the box, audiences love ROSE BYRNE. That said, Universal and THE ROCK FATHER have teamed-up for a NEIGHBORS Giveaway in which one (1) lucky reader will take home the Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD Combo Pack. Enter to win, and check out a special feature on why Rose Byrne is a nearly universal "girl crush" below.Seth RogenZac EfronNeighborsUniversal Studios Home Entertainmentfor GrownupsGiveawayMovies
Review - PEG + CAT: Chickens on the Loose and other REALLY Big Problems (DVD)
When PEG + CAT first landed on my radar back in May of 2013, I was attending the PBS Annual Meeting in Miami, where series creators Jennifer Oxley and Billy Aronson were on-hand to discuss their creation. With two daughters, the thought of a math-based series with a little girl as the lead was a compelling idea, and the fact that she wields a string-based instrument was a bonus. A year-and-a-half later, PEG + CAT is a true hit - a dual EMMY-winner that's watched regularly here at Rock Father HQ, with Peg's little ukulele-driven jingles a regular earworm. With the release of Chickens on the Loose and other REALLY Big Problems on DVD, the learning adventures are available at any time.The Fred Rogers CompanyPEG + CATPBS DistributionDVD ReviewLearningEducational EntertainmentPBS Kids
