Being that I was born in the early 90’s, ‘Jem’ is just a bit before my time, but I can recall the first time I saw an episode some years back. These glam rockers with fierce fashion, a sassy can-do attitude and strong enforcers of friendship/sisterhood immediately sucked me into their world, so I asked for the DVD box set for Christmas and watched the whole thing in marathon form. From ‘The Misfits’ horrifying attempts to blow up an orphanage (yes, you read that right) to thwart their musical arch-rivals, The Holograms, to Roxy’s illiteracy, to that time Jem took in an orphan with a pill problem, this show had it all.
So naturally, I was completely disappointed when I found out that the movie would have, literally, zero ties to the classic show I had come to know and love. I almost wish you all could have seen my face when I watched the trailer, which might as well have been ‘Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants’ with music. Maybe. I didn’t even hear them play in the trailer, I don’t think.
When I heard the comic was amazing, I was a little skeptical, because the film trailer crushed my expectations and I didn’t want another disappointment. This weekend I picked up the first two issues and was floored at how amazing they were.
Greetings, Evil Geeks! This week’s episode finds C-Mart and Undies of Wondy talk with the band Fiction for Bandits about their geeky influences, their beginnings as a band, and we reminisce about the inaugural episode of the Evil Geeks TV show. Be sure to check out the band on Facebook and Twitter!
Did you see the film Walk the Line but walk away thinking that it wasn’t quite preachy enough? Well, this week your prayers will be answered by this little gem:
Alrighty there geeks, get ready for an epic post from Lilith here, one where you are going to get to know Lilith more personally than you’ve ever encountered before on this blog. This post is one I have been thinking about writing since I joined the band of evil geeks. That’s right my diabolical followers, I am going to go all Arthur Harkness on your asses this post and expose some of my heart to you.
Let me give you a little background first: you all know I am passionate about everything science fiction and fantasy related, especially TV shows and novels. But there is another subset of this genre that motivates me almost every day. And that is the soundtrack counterpart to many of these shows and movies. I am a lover of music in general, and I also spend a lot of time running as my favorite outdoor activity, always accompanied by my trusty iPod sidekick. Running has become another way for me to travel to another world, as my iPod is full of theme songs from Game of Thrones, Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Fringe, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and The Walking Dead to name a few. So today I am going to bring you a top 5: Lilith’s Top 5 Musical Moments of the Movies. And with this new post, I am also going to challenge all of my geek brothers. Kang, Harkness, C-Mart, Biff, Big Evil, Greekimus: you have all been challenged. Take your time my geeky brethren, but I look forward to reading about your top 5 musical movie moments. And to all my geeky subjects out there, continue on for a sliver of a glimpse in to Lilith’s musical mind.
