Stuff You Need to Know, Monday, November 10, 2008

On some sites, each of these snippets would be an entire 500 word post. We don’t have time for that crap and neither do you. Enjoy.

  • A Happy Days musical? Apparently so. And apparently it’s been around since 2006. If you want to see a review of the latest incarnation, check it out here. And I found a commercial for it with some bits.

    Direct link for the feedreaders.

    Did he say “kickass”? Is that allowed?

  • Well apparently they got what they wanted: Djimon Hounsou will voice the Black Panther in the BET/Marvel animated series. They still haven’t come to their senses and used a decent storyline to adapt, however. Christopher Priest or nothing, folks. I’m sorry, but that’s how it goes. Source: Variety.

    Stuff: Beatles to Tempt Me Into Finally Buying a Gaming System

    The Beatles

    Because some people just want to read a single post with all their pop culture snippets in it, instead of following an entire website about it. Essentially: this is pop culture news for people with lives. Enjoy.

  • The Beatles‘ Apple Corps have signed a deal with MTV and Harmonix to bring about some form of Rock Band game that will feature the Beatles’ music. This will hit next year and comes with the full blessing of Paul, Ringo, along with Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison. Giles Martin, who co-produced Love–the Beatles/Cirque du Soleil pairing–is going to be music producer on this. The press release I read doesn’t have the official title of the game, although they’d be nuts not to call it Rock Band: The Beatles Edition or something. I will give a dollar to the first team who can do “Revolution 9” on the hardest level and give me photographic evidence of that fact.

    The devastating news at the end of Season Two was that Hank had to start selling propane at the Megalo Mart, then there was a huge propane explosion killing nearly everyone and burning Luanne’s hair off. Because of the explosion, Hank develops a fear of Propane and can’t take his old job back. In fact, he can’t even grill out on his own propane grill. It’s all downhill from there: Peggy takes a job as a substitute teacher and gets in trouble for spanking some children, Hank and Bobby get a chance to visit the Dallas Cowboys training camp and they get hell bent on convincing the team to move their camp from Witchita Falls to Arlen, and Hank and Peggy decide to go skydiving to prove that there are not getting old as their 20th anniversary draws nigh.
