The Sound Board #38: What We Did On Our Summer Vacation

Boys Archery at Summer Camp

This podcast generally covers music and other transgressions. This month’s episode is attended by Prof. Tuffley and Dr. Rob Levy with Widgett Walls in the chair, running the entire thing aground.

This episode’s central topic is catchup mode on 2014 thus far, since we’ve been on unplanned hiatus for a bit. Our favorites thus far this year, along with surprises and disappointments. Also discussed: Weird Al‘s recent triumph, Panic at the Disco vs. nutcases, Tupac vs. Broadway, the Mystery of Casey Kasem, Duran Duran vs. their own fan club (only sorta), MTV and Spotify in bed together, the advent of Amazon Prime and more.

32 Days of Halloween VI, Day 29: Vincent Price Sings!

Vincent Price Sings

There’s a lot to love when it comes to the classic horror actors of yesteryear. But if there’s one guy who doesn’t seem to have an end to his talents, it’s Vincent Price. In addition to being an actor on the big screen, he performed in a number of one-man performances (his Oscar Wilde show was amazing), he was an art collector and a gourmet foodie to the extent that he released a course of instructional albums on the subject.

But he could also sing. And we’re not just talking about this, with which most are probably familiar…

    Stuff You Need to Know: Tonka Trucks: The Movie. No. Really.

    Judge Dredd 2012

    'SANDLER!!!!'

    Some sites want to flood your screen with lame images, re-swizzled press releases and info you simply do not need in your life. We just want to give you one post, bang and you’re done. Short and sweet so you can get on with your lives. Enjoy.

  • In some excellent news, everything I’ve seen thus far on Dredd leads me to believe there is a snowball’s chance that it might not suck. Hollywood Reporter has the poster.
  • Primarily, you 24 fans need to be aware that the Complete Series is Amazon’s deal of the day today. List Price is $349.98. They’re selling it today for 67% off–or a reduction of $234.99 from the list price–which means you get the whole shebang for $114.99. (We tend not to bug you unless something is at least 50% off. So.) Here’s your link. Enjoy.
  • Oh hell yes. As part of Universal’s 100th Anniversary rollout of stuff, September 4th will see Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein hit Blu-Ray. You can pre-order it here. And you should. Because that film is solid gold.

    Your Weekend Justice #162: Down the Road That We Must Travel

    It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that just can’t be content to leave the past in the past. If bad pop culture was Karloff’s Mummy, this podcast would be dumb enough to break the seal on the tomb. I think that’s what I’m really trying to say here. This podcast was engineered–some might say over-engineered–by experts to escort you from the work week in the most chaotic manner possible. Please note: this podcast is profane, definitely oversexed and definitely overwrought. It is wrong and unsafe. You have been warned.

    It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that, as a public service message, wants to help you identify what kind of weirdo you might be near/around/involved with/have living in your attic without your knowledge. This podcast was engineered–some might say over-engineered–by experts to escort you from the work week in the most chaotic manner possible.

    Stuff You Need to Know: Imagine Captain Kirk Yelling “Cumberbatch”

    Benedict Cumberbatch

    All the pop culture news you really need to know in one post. This section of the site is designed for people who like to batch process things. Enjoy.

  • In excellent news for everyone involved, Benedict “Sherlock” Cumberbatch is the villain in Star Trek 2. The other person they mentioned auditioning for it was Edgar Ramirez. So this is the same role that Abrams wanted Benicio Del Toro for? That was rumored to be Khan…and then it looked like it had been confirmed…and now it looks like it’s a rumor again. So who knows? Either way, this is very pleasing news. Source: Variety.
  • Bag of Bones is scheduled to hit DVD on March 13th. It’s available for pre-order here.
  • Drive is hitting home video on January 31st. A lot of people liked it more than I did–and so be it–but Albert Brooks is a revelation, no matter what. Here are: DVD and Blu-Ray pre-order links.

    Stuff You Need to Know: Daniel Day-Lewis is Abe, Honestly

    Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln

    The frustrating thing about pop culture websites is they try to slam you with update after update–and most of it you simply don’t need to know. One post a week, catching you up with everything. That’s what we do. Pour some espresso and get your dose.

  • The Lincoln biopic, helmed by Spielberg, is a month into production and Hollywood Reporter had the first glimpse of Daniel Day-Lewis in full makeup as Abe. And damn. That’s pretty awesome. Cosette’s response: “Did he build a log cabin this time?” Yes. And studied his lines off a shovel. Is it just me or does this just make you want to see Day-Lewis fight vampires? Also, note that Variety says Jared Harris (the upcoming Moriarty–who, holy shit, that’s Richard Harris’ son!) will play Ulysses S. Grant and Sally Field as Mary Todd Lincoln.
  • Akira reworked plot points pointed out over at io9. Dindrane and fans of the original are warned to stay away, as you will have a severe allergic reaction. Here’s a taste: “Kaneda (Garret Hedlund) is a bar owner in Neo-Manhattan who is stunned when his brother, Tetsuo, is abducted by government agents led by The Colonel (Ken Watanabe).” And on from there.
