DragonCon 2015: We May Not Remember Who We Are, But At Least We'll Know When and Where...

Whoopee Johns Band

Behold. The time is upon you once more. The Prophecy Has Come True Once Again. And here is the result: the places and times where you can (in theory) find the Need Coffee Crew. Assemble with us, our awesome Caffiends. For the party shall commence.

Follow our Needcoffee feed for last minute updates. Where available, everyone's first mention has their Twitter ID linked up--so feel free to follow folks for their latest weirdness. (Except in cases where they've been added to an earlier panel than I first had them--so they're Twitter-linked on here somewhere. I'm old and lazy.) As always, this list is subject to change without notice or reason or rhyme.

As always, inevitably, there will be formatting and other stupid errors on this schedule. If you find something wrong, just ping me and we'll get it fixed. DON'T PANIC. Trust me, I'll tell you when to panic.

Changelog
v.1.01 - 8/28/15 - Rob's massive array of panels added

Music Whenever: MeLo-X, Cardiknox, Slug & More...

MeLo-X

First track, we have MeLo-X, an artist (one of those people who just tries out various types of media like you or I change our socks) based out of New York City. He has an EP, Curate, coming out later this year. The track "Baby Eye" combines an excellent and initially sparse array of beats with vocals that provide some actually serious reflection on the screwed up race situation we have with armed authorities and then...starts reflecting on reflecting on it. It goes meta quickly and it's damn excellent.

You can find him on Soundcloud here and his official site is here.

The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows

Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows

Pixar seemed to get its groove back with Inside Out, a look into the mind of an eleven year old girl. Her anthropomorphic emotional states that formed the committee running her brain are: yellow Joy, blue Sadness, red Anger, green Disgust, and purple Fear. Obviously for a family movie, you need to simplify the complex emotions everybody has. But people are made up of many more than the simple primary emotions.

Stuff You Need to Know: Disney Expected to Announce Animated Remakes of Live-Action Remakes of Animated Films

Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 2 Blu-Ray Collection

A lot of pop culture news happens. Some of it you don't need to know. Some of it you only need the briefest bit of it. And pretty much all of it is not urgent. Welcome to an endeavor to save you time and sanity. Enjoy.

  • And here it is: the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 2 Collection. Well...not really, that's not it...that's just the image that's posted on Amazon for the pre-orders. But it's an Amazon exclusive, so if you want the films Iron Man 3 through Ant-Man plus a "bonus disc and more" now's your chance. Speaking of which, Ant-Man is also available for pre-order. No release date for either one yet.

    Wayhomer Review #185: Ant-Man 3D

    Paul Rudd as Scott Lang in Ant-Man

    It's Episode #185 for Ant-Man, in which our protagonist talks about the Marvel streak, frets about their editorial past and also reflects on how the biggest fights can look tiny and inconsequential from a different height. Wow, that's deep, man.

    The Lion King: An Alternate Reality

    Zazu and Mufasa from The Lion King
    'Do they suspect anything?' 'Not a thing, sire.'

    Came up with this idea and posted it on my Facebook. I found it disturbing enough to share here as well. This is proof that the meds still aren't working.

    Stuff You Need to Know: Arkham Dentistry Ain't What It Used to Be...

    Jon Bernthal as The Punisher

    Why sift through a site where there's a news story for every time any project sneezes? We read it all and we give you a digest version of just the important stuff. You're busy and have a life. Everything else can wait. Enjoy.

  • First things first...it's Prime Day at Amazon. You have to be a Prime Member, but hey, grab the 30-day trial membership and rock on with your bad self. You can cancel. Although I don't recommend it. I use Prime all the time. And everything you purchase by going through us, we get kickbacks for. Thanks!
  • Jon Bernthal was spotted on the set of Daredevil as Frank Castle/Punisher. I'll miss Ray Stevenson, but I think it works. Source/Photo via Just Jared.
  • Bruce Timm announced that next year should see the premiere of Batman: The Killing Joke as a DC animated feature. That's...pretty ballsy. I wonder how faithful to that dark-as-hell book they're going to be? Source.

    My Head Hurts: When Graham Norton Floated With Dolly Parton

    Dolly Parton and Graham Norton

    I first learned of this when I was listening to Graham Norton's episode of Desert Island Discs. A TV special from 2001 featured Norton going to Dollywood at the invite of the grand lady herself. One of the things that resulted was the following, which, in a fit of madness and hilarity, Norton picked as one of his discs to take to the desert island with him.
