I've decided that every Friday I'm going to endeavor to give you a sampling of things you should be checking out, hence the title above. So what do I have for you today? Glad you asked...
Now I'm not rote on this bands history or membership I just know that they kick ass. It's sort of retro metal in a Sabbath like vein with Power Metal lyrics. Either way it's catchy, it's loud, and it inspires me for D&D!
THE DARKEST OF THE HILLSIDE THICKETS!
This is probably my favorite band. Yup. I'm not afraid to admit. A bunch of Canadians who throw down great songs about H.P. Lovecraft. I can't state enough my love of the Thickets.
I had been looking forward to this little 'mini-event', but now seeing as Bullseye is FINALLY getting what he deserves and we are finally seeing the natural evolution of Matt Murdock as Daredevil head towards being one of those classic "I'm only a bad guy because you don't understand what good I can get done this way" tropes, I'm PUMPED! This looks to be a winner!
MAGNUS ROBOT FIGHTER!
Dude in the future fights robots, BARE HANDED, in a red miniskirt. C-L-A-S-S-I-C-! Actually it's a great comic about social class, duty, & what it means to be 'alive' all wrapped in a Puply Sci-Fi bag of GOODNESS!
I watched and reviewed this a week or so ago, and it's still rattling around in my head. It's an inventive and pretty, in a brutal way, movie. I highly recommend it.
PILGRIMAGE TO EARTH!
This is my introduction to Robert Sheckley and it is fantastic. His short stories are concise, have weight & resonance, as well as never ceasing to entertain.
MST3K "DANGER!! DEATH RAY"!
I hadn't watched this one before, believe it or not, but now that I've finished it I find that I want to pop it RIGHT back in and re-watch it. The classics NEVER DIE!
See that wasn't so hard, now that you've been 'Learned' you can go forth and enjoy your weekend.
