DragonCon is on the horizon once more. Here is where we shall make our stand against boredom and sanity:
TL/DR NOTE: The Fun Fest is Sunday, September 3rd starting at 10:00pm in Regency V in the Hyatt.
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.
They’re making a movie out of Cats because of course they are. In the cast we find Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen and James Corden. Tom Hooper (The King’s Speech) directs. Production kicks off later this year. (Source.)
I’ve got a bad feeling about this. Just because it’s a prequel (kinda). But I shouldn’t have, as it turns out. All will be explained (kinda) in Episode #189 for Solo: A Star Wars Story, in which our protagonist looks forward to the Star Wars version of Warhead 2000 AD. Read More
It’s no secret that we think Clutch rocks balls. And not just because they let us use “Promoter (Of Earthbound Causes)” as our Weekend Justice theme song. Because ever since Doc introduced me to them via their self-titled album, they have kicked ass straight through to today. And now, they keep getting me more excited about their latest effort, Book of Bad Decisions, out in September.
Their latest music video, for “How to Shake Hands,” makes me laugh every time I watch the goddamn thing. Enjoy. And remember to vote.
I think we’re in violent agreement that there are just too many good TV shows these days. The way things have been going, only the coming global armageddon and a media server in my fallout shelter will enable me to catch up. I’m especially screwed on most stuff this year because I’ve been almost exclusively watching courses from MasterClass.
After hearing me go on and on about how cool it looked, Cosette scored tremendous points by getting me the All-Access Pass for Xmas. When you consider that one course is $90 and all the courses are $180, well, it’s a no-brainer.
It is a review told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying a need to get home! It’s Episode #188 for National Theatre Live: Macbeth, in which our protagonist ponders a post-apocalyptic bard. Read More
The show is Would I Lie to You?, in which a panelist from one team reads out a fact from a card. The panelists from the other team must then determine if the panelist with the fact is telling the truth or lying.
It’s always a glorious episode when Bob Mortimer is on. He is a very twisted individual. Take the following video as evidence.
