by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 21st, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

badguy2_still_1-300__large

 

Fantastic-Fest is hitting Austin hard with the newest and brightest in film. It’s a genre-fest, so you’re not going to find any heart-warmingly fuzzy family films there, but what you will find is awesome in any language. This is the product of writer/director/editor Chris McInroy and starred Kirk Johnson.

Hey guys, Jana here,

I seriously hadn’t thought of Angela Lansbury in years. Sure, I’ll make the ‘Murder, She Wrote‘ joke when the opportunity presents itself, but in my mind, she lives in a cabinet in The Beast’s castle and sings with dishes on occasion. Apparently, she’s not sitting in a cabinet. In fact, the actress is winning Tony’s and impressing the hell out of critics and theater-goers alike, with ‘Blithe Spirit‘. If you happen to be so lucky to be in one of the cities that the cast will be touring through, do yourself a favor and check it out!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 16th, 2014

Hillary T., Here…

As a huge fan of Buffy, I couldn’t believe it when my friend Michael Champion posted a picture from DCC Fan Appreciation Day with James C. Leary, known for his role as “Clem” on seasons six and seven of Buffy the  Vampire Slayer. I thought to myself, “How does he know THAT guy?” So I did what any good Fangirl would do, I stalked his Facebook page. Turns out his path and mine were about to cross in a seriously awesome way- James works in Austin, at company run my by, none other than my brother. This was my IN, my way to a dialogue. My message to him on FB starts, “So do you know Josef Hall?”

Dance Review: ‘MOMIX: Alchemia’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 13th, 2014

Janet W., Here..

While set to an ethereal melody, the retractable chandelier ascended into the ceiling to create a starry sky.  Showtime.  The sky dimmed, the music came up and then a spotlight shone on an abstract image on a black curtain, which appears as wood chips on fire, in reds, oranges, and browns ablaze.  This perception changed over the journey that is Alchemia.

Hey Deadites, Jana here,

Who hasn’t heard the age-old story of a couple of buddies heading out into the woods, evil woods, fumbling around looking for a cabin. Instead of a relaxing break from the mundane, they discover the ‘Necronomicon‘, or basically the ‘Book of the Dead‘. It’s not just a book in a dead language, there’s a taped translation of the text! How lucky could they be, right?! Instead of staying away from the creepy vibes that have to be emanating from this unholy tome, they do what a handful of morons would do and play the thing! Of course, this releases an evil so heinous that one by one the moronic teens are possessed until it’s down to one to defeat the evil dead and survive the night.

Hey Hed-heads, Jana here,

Hedwig and the Angry Inch‘ is a musical that may be new to theater-goers.  Some may have just heard about it when they saw that Neil Patrick Harris got glammed up to play the lead in a revival of the transgendered hit.  Hedwig began in 1998 in an Off-Broadway rendering written and composed by John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask. The pair then took their work to Off-Broadway with Mitchell playing Hedwig and Trask as one of the band members. Not to confuse those of you that are unfamiliar with Hedwig any further, let me give you a run-down.

Fangirl Hillary here!

Has everyone been keeping an eye out about the upcoming wonder that is Creation Entertainment’s Supernatural Con? This thing is HUGE and coming to Dallas the weekend of September 19-21st (my pre-birthday weekend). Featuring the headlining skills of Jared Padalecki (for those not in the know, Sam Winchester), Jensen Ackles (the mighty Dean Winchester), and Misha Collins (the somber and delicious Castiel), but not leaving out: Mark Sheppard (Oh sweet Crowley!) and Richard Speight Jr. (from Trickster fame and Gabriel)!

Alright YouTubers, listen up! If you want to make a real, honest-to-God film with professional cameras, this opportunity is just for you! Legendary Entertainment has entered into a working relationship with YouTube that is an entirely new approach to the film making world. The duo are collaborating on ‘YouTube Space House of Horrors: A Legendary Halloween’. It’s getting into the fall, leaves MIGHT be falling from trees, if you’re in the mid-west like I am, leaves are dying off of heat exhaustion, but no matter how it happens, fall is approaching. Where you get fall, you get Halloween.

Chris August Concert Review!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 29th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

Chris+August+42nd+Annual+GMA+Dove+Awards+Press+DRSt5f72Rlll

 

 

Some days, I think my career choice didn’t end up exactly how I wanted then I’m reminded of what a charmed life I really lead. Sure, I’m not a transplant surgeon or even a serial killer tracker for the FBI, but I’ve got the most gravy job out there. Where else can I stay in the relative comfort of my own home, write about TV, movies, singers and theatre shows I love? I’m sure we can all do that from our parents’ basement, but I don’t have prison pallor from living underground for months on end with the only break to be for a Cheetos run. Part of this awesome opportunity I have in writing for Boomstick, is that I’m not only able, but encouraged to go see concerts, theatre runs, films whatever the case may be. It’s good being me! So I didn’t start this just to brag on my glorious job, I get to tell you all about a fantastic event I attended last Friday and the artist I got to spend some one-on-one time with.
