Every now and then you randomly get reminded of a show you had totally forgot existed. In most cases you can’t believe how much you remember about the show once you are reminded of it’s existence…this was not the case with Biker Mice From Mars. My brother was visiting me the other day and he asked if I had written a post on Biker Mice From Mars. Not only hadn’t I, I don’t think I had even thought about the show since it’s cancellation back in 1996. Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about the show: Biker Mice from Mars is a science fiction action animated series created by Rick Ungar that began airing in 1993, in the United States and lasted for three seasons before it was cancelled. It was composed by William Anderson. It follows three anthropomorphic mice motorcyclists named Throttle, Modo, and Vinnie who escape a war on their home planet Mars before arriving to defend the Earth from the evil that destroyed their homeland (the Plutarkians) and to one day return …
This week’s song is “Kiss Me” by Sixpence None The Richer (Great name right?) Who knew in a video for a song which states “kiss me” about 100 times that this poor girl can’t get any solid mouth on mouth action? As we all know, this was the massive single to promote the movie She’s All That, starring Freddie Prinze Jr. And Rachael Leigh Cook (who both make cameos in this video…not kissing). Remember how ugly Rachael Leigh Cook was in that movie? I mean until Anna Paquin had the foresight to realize if Rachael got rid of those glasses and ponytail, she could actually be a smoking hot girl. See ladies, it’s that easy, so rent that movie and take notes.
This (as you can see) is a fun infographic stating some of the lesser known facts about Superman. Some facts such as the ‘S’ crest meaning hope or Superman fighting Muhammad Ali most Superman fans and readers of The Nostalgia Blog likely know about. However the shit about Dracula and pink kryptonite turning Superman gay are right out of left field. However, we all know you couldn’t turn anyone gay with pink kryptonite, only Ryan Gosling has that power… To See a larger version click here.
This is a chart created by Vox to show how many voices each actor on Futurama was responsible for. If you are thinking this sounds familiar, you are correct as we posted the exact same thing on The Simpsons and South Park a while back. I am always blown away by how many voices these actors do. It’s incredible! I mean most of these voice actors have other acting jobs too, so it’s like they have 150 jobs! I only have two jobs, writing this blog and pretending I don’t write this blog when people say it’s terrible. The second job takes a lot more effort as you can probably guess.
In the continuing journey of these bat-shit crazy (pardon the pun, I ate a lot of cheese) crossovers comes Batman and The Beatles! Well sort of. Actually, when this comic came out in 1970 I guess DC Comics didn’t actually have consent from The Beatles to be in the issue. So in true 70s fashion (I’m guessing, I wasn’t alive) DC simply stole their likenesses and renamed the band The Oliver Twists. I am assuming there big hit was ‘Twist and Yell Loudly”. The Plot of the comic was that one of the lead singers ‘Saul’ is apparently dead and Batman and Robin has to disprove it or something. The story line is clearly based on the whole Paul McCartney is dead rumor from years earlier. For more on this whole Paul is dead thing, please see this interview.
