Hello fans and friends, its everyone’s favorite lovable antagonist, Grand Master Zed, back during the long and dark off season and ready as all Seven Hells to tell you about Shame of Thrones: the Musical! As you all know, we had the lovely minds behind this blood soaked soiree on the podcast a few months back, and now that they’re setting up shop in New York City, a stones throw away, I had to check it out and send you guys back a raven to tell you all about it!
Hey there, Evil Geeks! Hopefully you were able to make it out to The Low Beat this past weekend to check out the premiere of the first episode of Theater of the Absurd. If you listened to Undies of Wondy’s interview with the creators on Transmission’s From the Evil Lair a few weeks ago, then you knew you were going to be in for a treat with the first episode of this animated comedy.
The most brilliant joke about the comedy film, “Robocop”, and make no mistake, it is a comedy, is the faulty ramp. The faulty ramp happens very early in the story, but as Syd Field says, you can usually tell what a movie is going to be about in the first ten minutes. You will know if you like a movie in that time frame, and you will also know what it’s going to be about.
Now I know I usually do game-related stuff and thus, this is rather irregular. I also know that this is pretty much wandering into foreign and terrifying territory for me, so I’m not sure how helpful my feedback might be. If it’s any consolation, I really do feel as if I’ve just walked inside a strange and alien house, filled –for some reason- with countless, small, pink paper elephants. Some of them are stained actually; a few with blood, others with radioactive jam, but none with vegemite. Why aren’t there any stained with vegemite? Don’t they like it? Why are all the mirrors in here covered with wet towels, dripping an unknown iridescent liquid to the crumbling floor? Why is said liquid simply falling through it as if the tiles don’t really exist, cascading into a deep, dark void below? Why is there an axe stuck in a head? Why is there a head stuck in a door? Why is a door stuck –quite haphazardly- on a screaming velociraptor? Mmmmm… the elephants sure taste good though. But enough about my fond childhood memories, onto the list.
I was skimming through headlines early this week in the wake of San Diego Comic Con, and I glimpsed an article about test footage for a planned Dead Pool movie featuring a previously unseen version of the character, reportedly more in keeping with his traditional portrayal. I guess the video was taken down before I got a chance to watch it but here are the five things we NEED to see in this remake of the classic 1988 installment in the Dirty Harry series.
No, you didn’t misread that title, I’ve got a Liefeld-related recommendation for ya’ll. Now, allow me to first put all of my cards on the table; This is not a legitimate suggestion of a Rob Liefeld project. No, I come to you this day to hip you to a twitter account that has brought me endless laughter over the last year and change since I discovered it.
Rob Liefeld is a famous man in the comic book world. And he’s famous in an El Guapo sort of way, which is to say INfamous. However, he’s hasn’t exactly achieved mainstream celebrity (unless you count a certain Levi’s commercial) so it wasn’t too difficult for a hilarious internet prankster to grab Liefeld’s name on Twitter before the …artist… could get it for his own. So, if you’re looking for the dude who did X-Force on Twitter, you’ll wanna follow @RobertLiefeld. If you’re looking for laughs, follow @ROBLIEFELD. And I have no affiliation with this parody account, I’m just a huge fan.
