If you haven’t seen Henry Rollins do one of his live spoken word shows (read: borderline stand-up) or, more recently, his photo slideshow presentation, then you might not know what a bastion of funny-as-hell erudition he is. Take a moment to enjoy these two entries from Funny or Die. First, he gets shirtless with the Shirtless Painter for a discussion about…damn near everything. Then, he deconstructs Oh, The Places You’ll Go! in a manner that is probably different from any other way you’ve ever heard it read. Classic cultural insanity. Enjoy.(more…)

From last year’s DragonCon hullaballoo, our inaugural panel, in which we gather to make the audience wail and gnash their teeth. Why? Because we’re telling them what Hollywood is going to do to those books, cartoons, games, breakfast cereals, etc. that they love.
On the panel this year: Kim, Leigh, Rob Levy, Rox of Spazhouse, ScottC, Tuffley, & a golem of regret. Enjoy.

One of the lovely things among many lovely things about Real World Records was their tendency to get a bunch of diverse musicians in a room and let them spend some serious time coming up with songs together. One of the results of this was 1993’s Way Down Below Buffalo Hell, the only release from the group known as Jam Nation. Many, many musicians threw down on the various tracks, but this track has vocals by Daniel Lanois & Gary Dyson, drums by Dave Barbarosa, and Baba Diarra & Bakari Traoré on balafon.(more…)
It’s Episode #195 for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, in which our protagonist is disappointed because the film broke a fundamental rule: not following its own rules. But hey, cool fight scenes!(more…)
