Black Lightning crashes Superman’s Funeral

Friday, April 21st, 2017

SNL did this skit back when Superman died fighting Doomsday

I interviewed Black Lightning’s creator about 15 years ago and he said that he’d kiss Sinbad for the job he did on this one.

Doctor Who is on Disney XD?

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

This strikes me as extremely wrong but I cannot place my finger on exactly why.

Just based on the clips this appears to start in the second season of the Welsh series with David Tennant. Perhaps they are just promoting it that way.


Now this is how you tell a ghost story!

Weird Al’s Mandatory Fun

Thursday, July 17th, 2014
Weird Al as Newton

does the Epic Rap Battles of History wikia mind if we steal this?

Oh, Weird Al.  My favorite musician for 30+ years.

The only reason I’m not a member of the Close Personal Friends of Al is that Jon “Bermuda” Schwartz sent my check for $14 back a year later to say that “Polka Party” had flopped and they were kind of thinking that Weird Al Yankovic was over, so the fan club was no more.

I probably should have reapplied at some point.

Sometime back, listening to Weird Al albums became a different kind of experience.  Instead of loving the parodies of pop tunes I recognized in the 1980s and 1990s, now I was having to research who the recording artists are and what their original songs sound like.  (To be fair, when I was 12, I’d no idea what “Yoda” was based on, either.)

What makes it worse, is that Weird Al is now a far superior singer/musician in comparison to most of the people that he is parodying these days.  You notice that his original songs are musically challenging and whimsically inventive, but then every other track on his album has to be a monotonous redo (with better lyrics) of an over-autotuned piece of repetitive junk.

I am loving his new album so far. His first video, Tacky, has a good song, but the video mainly benefits from the superstar guest appearances with goofy dances.

The second video is a huge improvement, with fun animation and lots of inside jokes .

Did ya catch that the homework is graded by Mrs. Krabapple? (Oh, and the song is a huge improvement over “Blurred Lines”)

Then “Foil”, a great song based on a horrible song.

You gotta love the heel turn that the video suddenly makes!

But what happens when you watch Next Generation in this house?

I should think this might prove a little problematic.

You may think Katrina Bowden (of 30 Rock fame) is a nerd:

Breaking Bad Star Trek animated thingima

Thursday, August 15th, 2013

All I have to say is that there were no replicators in the original Star Trek series. Also I have never seen Breaking Bad so if you want adequate context you are out of luck there.

Brent Spiner on Night Court

I have never heard of this one, but then my memories of Night Court are hazy at best.

John DiMaggio is a pop icon?

Well I can buy that Bender is a pop icon.

John DiMaggio on the formula for Bender

Wednesday, August 7th, 2013

Voice actor John DiMaggio, known to many of us for voicing Bender on Futurama and a nearly spot-on Joker in the Batman Red Hood straight-to-DVD movie, tells us about he puts together various elements of impressions and vocal artifacts to perform his Bender voice.


I will say outright that due to the limitations of biology and physiognomy I can almost instantly detect John DiMaggio behind a character he plays. Yet this certainly is not a knock because despite what all of his characters have in common to make the man recognizable his characters do not sound at all like John DiMaggio. Bender does not sound like John DiMaggio. I did not know that until I saw this video.
