|Underworld - Everything Everything |
I had a hard time convincing some of my friends that Underworld were absolutely worth seeing live. Those who went with me ended up completely agreeing.
(I've been shuffling Underworld on the speakers in my art classroom all day - this video is serendipitous in the best way)
|T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)|
Believe it or not, this doofus released a really good, ambitious solo album on a small British label about ten years ago, and I was actually looking forward to seeing what he did as a followup.
What he did was add a member of Kids Incorporated to his main group.
|75 years of Superman |
I got a copy of a book called SUPERMAN: THE UNAUTHORIZED BIOGRAPHY as a gift recently and highly HIGHLY recommend it. It goes into a ton of historiographical tidbits of the character, and as such reflects the changing role of superheroes as a whole in American pop culture (which makes it pretty much exactly the book I've been looking for).
I'm not a fan of the character, particularly, but am becoming a lot more aware of why so many people are, and I'm probably going to start looking for some good old Superman books to check out. Any recommendations aside from ALL-STAR?
|VERY VERY VERY BREAKY BREAKY BREAKY BISHI-BISHI!!! |
Japanese wrestling tables compared to American ones are like Checker cabs compared to VW bugs.
|Sha Na Na - 'At The Hop' (1969)|
My Dad was at Woodstock*. He slept through the Who (the band he'd most wanted to see) and woke up for Sha Na Na. Ten years later, when the group had a TV show, he knew one of the members.
* (fun sign of how much things have changed - he hitchhiked there from Kansas and somewhere in Illinois, a middle-aged-but-with-it couple asked him to take their adolescent son to see the show, because they could tell it would be something big. My dad left the show early because the kid stepped on a bottle and had to be taken home. He's told me that the brown acid was really good, until you were told over a loudspeaker that it was poison.)
|Typical Pre-School Trip to NYC|
MY four-year-old saw this guy performing in a subway station last year and walked over to engage him in conversation about how comets work.
(the performer's name is Matthew Silver, btw)
|Children cover the shit out of Tool|
It makes me very happy to see Jared Sloan references from people who weren't Carls. The internet is such a small place.
|Kiss: Phantom of the Park/Attack of the Phantom German TV trailer|
Don't get the version that was released recently as part of some Kiss box-set - get the one with horrible voice overdubs and Hanna-Barbera funk scoring for the fight sequences.
|Aaron Paul on The Price Is Right before his acting career|
Skinny Pete and Otter were in the crowd all like "DUDE NO WAY that car's worth twenty-six-five!"
|Commander Mark's Secret City|
I have the Secret City book on my shelf next to some of the comics and stuff I did in my 20s.
|Colormation screen test|
JET SET RADIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH!
|The Most Pretentious Black Metal Band In History|
Wrong website for the in-joke, Max!
(seriously, though, NYBM is its own hilarious world. I swear to God that I saw a black VW Bug decked out with the KRALLICE logo three feet tall on its hood and 3DGY black metal bumper stickers on the back)
|The Avenging Disco Godfather|
(though my first time watching it was with a bottle of Mount Gay and a pound of Sour Patch Kids, which put me into a state comparable to a gas mask filled with PCP)
|Metallica: Through The Never Trailer|
The Metallica action movie has a tour van rolling over.
|Return to the Batcave: The Misadventures of Adam and Burt|
This contradicts the Gospels (known as BOY WONDER: MY LIFE IN TRUNKS) as Burt Ward isn't spending the entire show having sex with every hot woman in Hollywood and high society.
|The Edge playing U2's playing Numb at the 1993 MTV VMAs|
Did EBN co-host the show, or did MTV/U2 forget to cut the EBN logo out of the footage they stole?
|Grand Theft Auto 5 gameplay trailer|
Parachuting, swapping between participants in a single mission AND the possibility (even the merest possibility, people!) of playing in an 80s armored Lex Luthor costume?
Why can't this game come out in late June, so I could actually play the fuck out of it right after I buy it? It'll kill me to hear my students raving about it in October...
|Kaiju Remedies from Pacific Rim|
I get the feeling that if this movie sucks, it will at least use its tongue while it does so.
|Industrial dancing in a variety of public locations|
They aren't even listening to "industrial dance."
|Brutal/Deathcore/Grindcore is NOT Music!|
This guy is exactly what I assume all Dream Theater fans are like. I'm sure he held himself back from making references to Red Dwarf and Monty Python.
"I'm a music head, and I don't consider these bands to be art. However, I like TED enough to have a poster on my wall."
I agree with him about not wanting to identify oneself by one genre, but holy shit is prog metal just about my least favorite version of guitar-based music.
