For Grownups - CALL OF DUTY: GHOSTS gets new voices from SNOOP DOGG and R. LEE ERMEY...
I'm way behind on my CALL OF DUTY playing. In fact, it's been a bit since I fired up the Xbox 360 (I still need an Xbox One) for some CALL OF DUTY: GHOSTS action, and I need to catch up on all the DLC goodies, like the new personalization and voice packs that hit the game today. Among them, a "1987 Customization Pack" (which is pretty neon), and the first-ever voice packs, which bring in SNOOP DOGG and R. LEE ERMEY to narrate the multiplayer action. Check out some sneak-previews, below...R Lee ErmeySnoop DoggCall of Duty: Ghostsfor GrownupsCall of DutyVideo Games
Watch & Listen: Disney DCONSTRUCTED - "The Muppet Show Theme (Shy Kidx Remix)"
Today, Walt Disney Records issued what is quite possibly one of the strangest, yet appropriately contemporary releases in their catalog. DCONSTRUCTED (available on Amazon & iTunes) finds Mickey Mouse and Friends going full-on EDM, with remixes of classic and modern Disney fare by artists such as AVICII, ARMIN VAN BUUREN, BT and more. Tonight, the video for THE MUPPET SHOW THEME as reimagined by SHY KIDX hit my inbox, and it is certainly something to behold. Not necessarily for the kids, it's a rave-styled trip. In fact, it reminds me of a few weekends back in 1994-1995-ish, when I visited some underground raves in the Quad Cities. I had a funky hat.Shy KidxThe Muppet ShowFamily MusicEDMRemixesThe MuppetsFrozenThe Lion KingMonsters UniversityThe IncrediblesToy Story
Listen: Psychostick release Metal Cover of READING RAINBOW...
Well, this is a reminder out of nowhere. The folks at READING RAINBOW have been in touch a few times over the past few years, and every time I hear from them, I automatically end up getting the theme song to the iconic LeVar Burton family literature series stuck in my head. So why did it get stuck in my head this morning? No, it wasn't communique from READING RAINBOW at all, but an email from comedy metal band, PSYCHOSTICK. The band has just released a cover version of that earworm-inducing theme song, and you can hear it right here on THE ROCK FATHER, below.Dog Fashion DiscoLeVar BurtonReading RainbowThe Bunny The BearPsychostickKindiePBSMetalCover SongsMusic Videos
