Don't worry if you don't remember The Micronauts! PLAID STALLIONS will remember it for you!


From PLAID STALLIONS
For our 40th episode we are joined by actor/comedian Chris Tallman (@MrChristallman on twitter) for a celebration of the Interchangeable World of the Micronauts, the classic toy line from Mego that is about to get a major motion picture and new comic book series this year. 

The discussion begins with the toy line's Japanese origins, it's halcyon Mego days, the influential Marvel comic book, our childhood impressions, later incarnations and then we pick out favourite toys from the line...








These cats have issues...

From FLASHBAK
At Flashbak we love to dig up forgotten gems and rediscover how the past never went away. Thanks to the magic of the internet, today’s creators can add their twist to what went before. This means that the work of Irish writer Samuel Beckett can be worked into a Tumblr that nods towards I Can Has Cheezburger?. Yes, that’s right. This is I Can Has Samuel Beckett, in which cute cats voice the despair of their existence. Who needs know-alls and experts to explain the essence of Beckett when you can say it so much better with cats?

It's Brandon Tenold vs Gamera! (Again!)

From BRANDON'S CULT MOVIE REVIEWS


“I cannot, Blade. I cannot! You are too big. You will kill me.” - GLORIOUS TRASH reviews another Richard Blade Sword & Softcore classic!

From GLORIOUS TRASH
The Richard Blade series is strong with the “man conquers” theme, with Blade often relying on his massive muscles and massive manhood to subdue feisty women. Slave Of Sarma takes this subtext to overt levels, with Blade telling himself he will “need his sex” to win this one. And have no fear, he succeeds, sexually subduing Queen Pphira in the most explicit sex scene in the book – that is, after he’s “boxed her lightly, with quasi-affection, on each cheek with his huge hand.” (Pphira kind of likes it, but I still wouldn’t recommend this in the real world.)...


And now we've lost Alan Rickman...

I'm speechless...



We’ve sad, sad news to report: Alan Rickman, the incredibly talented British actor of stage and screen, has passed away at the age of 69.

Readers of all ages are sure to have their own favourite Rickman performance: younger readers may know him as Severus Snape in the Harry Potter series of film adaptations.

Others will remember him as the incomparable villain Hans Gruber in the 1988 action classic, Die Hard. Still others may think of his tender performance in the British drama Truly, Madly, Deeply, or his wonderfully broad, boo-hiss bad guy the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves...

ANGUS SCRIMM 1926-2016 rest in peace my favorite monster...

From DREAD CENTRAL
Phanstasm director Don Coscarelli ...said of Scrimm’s death:


"Angus Scrimm passed away peacefully tonight surrounded by his friends and loved ones. He was 89 years old. His performance as the Tall Man is a towering achievement in horror film history. He was the last in a long line of classic horror movie stars. Angus was a terrific actor and an even better friend. He will be missed."
