So This Is What It’s Like When Doves Cry: RIP Prince

In what has been a crazy year for celebrity deaths already, yet another music icon has passed away. Like David Bowie, Prince was someone I appreciated and really respected as an artist/musician but I would be lying if I said I was a huge fan. To be honest, I know Prince mostly for his great songs (When Doves Cry, Let’s Go Crazy and 1999 are legit anthems for me). Other than that my knowledge or Prince is mostly based on watching Purple Rain: The 1989 Batman Soundtrack: Charlie Murphy’s story about him: Neal Brennan’s story about him: Kevin Smith’s story about him: Oh and the fun fact that “Nothing Compares to You” is actually Prince’s best selling single: All of this aside, I really did believe Prince to be an amazing talent and one of the most fascinating people of a generation. Anytime he would perform live on show I would always tune and be blown away by his performance (and in most cases I had never even heard the song being performed before). There …

I forgot to set my VCR: Simpsons Rock Bottom Retractions

“Hello Homer, This is God…frey Jones from the TV magazine show Rock Bottom” One of the funniest episodes of The Simpsons titled “Homer: Bad Man” also provided one of the funniest jokes that most of us never really saw (at least in it’s original airing). For those who haven’t seen the episode, go F#*K yourself and watch it! It’s comedic gold! I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to snap at you like that, must be all the angel dust I snorted earlier. Anywho, while you should watch the episode even if you have dozens of times (yes, it’s that good), the basic synopsis is: Homer was accused of sexually harassing a babysitter by grabbing her butt, when in reality, he was only grabbing a Gummi Venus de Milo that had gotten stuck to the back of her pants. When a protestors’ shantytown and a media circus formed at the Simpson house, Godfrey Jones called Homer and offered him a chance to explain his side of the story. Jones interviewed Homer, but the interview was heavily and …

“In 9 hours and 23 minutes… you’ll be mine”: Labyrinth Board Game Coming

Well, we’ve all be meaning to get around to watching Labyrinth to truly honor the passing of David Bowie, but now we have even more intensive to do so because a board game coming this summer! The game will be released by River Horse and the breakdown is as follows: This is the maze that players must navigate every time they wish to save Sarah’s baby brother. Each game is different with the blank card spaces being filled with the magical encounters and monsters that are depicted on the deck of cards that comes with the game, this ensures a great deal of replayability and unpredictability in the game, giving the Labyrinth its signature feel. The game consists of two distinct stages, one where the group must adventure through the labyrinth trying to find the goblin city whilst keeping their willpower as high as possible (nobody wants to fall into the oubliette!), and a second action-packed stage where the players must fight their way into Jareth’s castle where Sarah must say the magical words that …

Crossover: Pinky and The Brain (Voices) read Pulp Fiction

This is a clip from San Francisco Sketchfest of Rob Paulsen (Pinky) and Maurice LaMarche (The Brain) performing their lovable cartoon character voices while reading an excerpt from Pulp Fiction. I think this was probably a lot better if you were actually in the audience but it’s still always fun to see voice actor’s perform their characters live. Enjoy!
