Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is out today on Blu-ray, but most of you kids already got it on Digital HD when it came out August 8. But there’s something we need to talk about…
The Awesome Mix.

I can’t imagine my life without music. I bring speakers everywhere. I keep one in my bag as part of my everyday carry. I have a speaker I keep in the kitchen for when I’m doing dishes. I even have a speaker I bring outside for when I’m grilling. And I connect to these speakers wherever and whenever I want to make music of my own – through apps or with gadgets. My son loves music too – he goes to bed listening to a streaming station and we’ll oftentimes choose a station while doing homework together.
Most dads love playing with their kids’ toys – especially their musical instruments. Whether dad’s making music with his kids, on his kids, or just with their toys, there are a ton of totally adorbz and LOL-worthy videos out there to enjoy.
Most recently, custom guitar maker Frank Pasquale posted a video of he and a friend doing some Slayer on First Act instruments:
And the world of pink instruments will never be the same.
My interest might be waning in Jay-Z, but I’m still a big Shawn Carter fan.
With today’s release of Jay-Z’s new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, some critics were hoping to hear the now-43 year old rapper and new father move his music from the streets to the stroller, so to speak.
With Jay-Z (real name Shawn Carter) spending a lot of time in the last year talking about fatherhood in the media, Magna Carta Holy Grail falls short of the expectation that instead of hearing an album about Jay-Z brushing dirt off his shoulder, we’d be hearing about him wiping off baby spit-up.
Nevertheless, since Jay-Z has been very prominent around the media discussing fatherhood, I’m happy enough knowing the topic’s on his mind.
