It’s that time again. We’ve got another Futurama poster autographed by Matt Groening up for grabs, and all you have to do to get a shot at it is give us your opinion. Here’s this month’s question:
What was the best new character to appear in Season 6?
Futurama’s special one-hour season premiere airs this Wednesday at 10/9c!
My lovely wife Sharon and I visited the local animal planet this past Tuesday, May 12. During this time of year, the zoo is open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., afterward it’s simply too hot for animals and humans alike. Still, it’s a wonderful oasis in which you can commune with your non-human friends. We enjoyed ourselves and successfully avoided heat stroke! All in all, a pretty good day.
While you’re waiting for ‘Dayglo Necros’ to hit stores on July 1, like me, you can enjoy this 2007 video. Sexy vampires and a song that makes being undead totally cool.
CALABRESE. One of my favorite local bands! Met these dudes at this year’s PHOENIX COMICON! Dig their way out horror punk sound. Slamming beats, killer hooks, and lyrics worthy of your all-time favorite monster movies. Jimmy, Bobby, and Davey. Can hardly wait for the new disc to drop on July 1.
Music and ice cream. :)
Picked up the latest issue of HorrorHound at my local B&N, in which I enjoyed reading an article by Ryan Olson, titled “In Space, No One Can Hear You Scream: A HorrorHound’s Guide to Alien.” Olson takes us on a trip down memory lane-or whatever you call it when you’re deep space-and recounts for us all the highs and lows in the Alien series. Can’t say I agreed with all his reviews. For example, I appreciated how Jean-Pierre Jeunet (who also directed ‘Amelie’ and ‘The City of Lost Children’) completely reimagined the Alien universe in his 1997 installment ‘Alien Resurrection’. However, unlike Olson, I found ‘AVP Requiem’ (2007) to be a completely deplorable chapter in the Alien saga. Conflicting opinions aside, Olson’s article is a fun read, replete with pictures of the tons of merch that accompanied each film!
Saw the 10 a.m. showing at the Tempe Marketplace 16. Not a sell-out crowd by any means, but definitely many from the sci-fi, fantasy, and fringe art scene in attendance. A pretty chill audience. As for the movie, it lives up to its intention of being a “prequel” to the Alien series, hinting at the narrative threads to come in the original ‘Alien’ (1979), as well as those in the three sequels. If you’re a believer in the Alien universe and the creatures that inhabit its far reaches, then you’ll appreciate this pre-apocalyptic Creation Story.
