Apone Sings!

Al Matthews as Apone from Aliens

So there we were, minding our own business, watching the Aliens commentary (as you do), when the Marines in the cast started discussing Al Matthews aka Sgt. Apone. I forget what it was exactly that was said, but I was inspired to look him up on Wikipedia (which is always right) and learned something new: before he loved the Colonial Marine Corps, he had landed a hit single in 1975 with “Fool,” which reached #16 on the UK Singles Chart.

The path then was clear: find the song. And the Internet did not let me down. Here he is live from Top of the Pops

Your Weekend Justice #230: Following John Cleese to the End of the World

ham

It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck…the podcast that didn’t mean to make some sort of weird John Cleese callback to the Outtakes episode, but did so anyway.

(Note: I apologize that I’m a bit robo at the beginning but it somehow inexplicably improves shortly thereafter. My actual voice, though, remains as grating as always.)

    Prometheus: Rampant Spoilers and Speculation

    Prometheus Head

    This isn’t really a review of Prometheus, so much as it is a spoiler-filled retrospective of some things which may have been missed in the tulmut of awesome which was that film. What I mean is, I want to talk about some of the elements of Prometheus which add to the world/universe-building, and maybe draw one or two conclusions from there.

    I am completely willing to be wrong about many of these points–particularly the conclusions I draw–but some of them are just facts on the digital image film.

    Ready? Did you catch that I said “spoiler-filled” above? Good. Let’s go.

    Your Monday Morning Mental Sorbet: Aliens on Ice

    Aliens on Ice

    Every Monday when the content warrants it, we like to share something special to start off your week. Some little pinprick of madness to either excite your brain into motion or incite your brain into a semi-comatose state–whichever way you can best get through the week to come. This time our friend Mim sent over the following: Aliens on Ice.

    It’s long been a running gag that you can take just about anything and add “On Ice” to the end of the title and make it ridiculous and wrong. This has been, however, largely a theory. However, the Dramatologists at The Old Murder House Theatre out of Austin, Texas, were not content with mere theory and decided to stage the film Aliens live on ice skates. This is utterly mental, as the video will attest. Credit where credit is due, though: love the alien helmets on the skaters up top. Previous productions have apparently included Robocop: Live!

    For more info on their particular group psychosis, check out their Facebook page.
