‘Get Out’ is Coming back to theaters for FREE!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 16th, 2018

On February 19th, a total of 55 AMC Theaters across the nation will show the Oscar nominated and award winning film ‘GET OUT’ for FREE! You can see the list of theaters down below by clicking the link. ‘GET OUT’ is one of the best films of 2017 and I’m so happy they are showing it for free next week. Who would have predicted that one half of the ‘Key and Peele’ show would direct a movie that would be talked about and remembered for many years to come. It’s half horror and half comedy with an excellent satire behind it all.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

star-wars-teaser

I’m certainly glad J.J. Abrams and Disney are releasing the first trailer for the upcoming new ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ film in theaters, rather than online. I mean, it’s ‘Star Wars‘. It deserves to be on the big screen. What do we know so far? We know that Disney has chosen 30 theaters across the nation that will show the 88-second trailer before each movie playing this Thanksgiving weekend.

Hey guys, Jana here with more Wizard World Tulsa news!

william-shatner-sfSpan

I had the pleasure of sitting in on William Shatner’s panel on Saturday 11-8-14 that included a Q&A with fans. He was a remarkable speaker, very engaging with the audience and truly loved the chance to be there. The ballroom his panel was held in was packed to capacity with every manner of attendee imaginable. When he was introduced, there was an electric buzz in the room that was entirely palpable. The hype was broken only when he was announced as a musician. Once he took the stage, he seemed in his element, comfortable and right at home. He jumped directly into fan questions.

‘Jem and the Holograms’ Gets a Cast!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Apr 26th, 2014

Hello, Jana here,

 

JEM_and_the_HOLOGRAMS_by_Thuddleston

I was one of the fans that was super excited about the live-action ‘Jem and the Holograms‘ movie in the works. I loved Jem, I knew if I got up and ready for school early enough, I would be done and could watch all but the last 3 minutes of an episode before I had to leave for school. I was in the fifth grade, I think and swore I was going to be like Jem when I grew up. I did the whole singing with a hairbrush into a mirror bit. I danced like crazy and just knew somewhere, someone would realize the genius and promise I had.

Hi, Bryan Here….

globes-drink

The Golden Globes were last night and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler killed it. They were amazing.  Even former president Bill Clinton showed up to talk about Spielberg’s ‘Lincoln‘.  Even though I really liked the film ‘Argo‘, I was shocked when it won best film and director for Ben Affleck. I was happy to see ‘Django Unchained‘ win for best supporting actor for Christoph Waltz and screenplay for Tarantino. If this is any pre-cursor to the Oscars, I’d be completely let down if ‘Argo‘ takes it all.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great film, but not the best film of the year.  I expect it to and want it to win the best adapted screenplay.  Just my opinion.  Below are the full results from last night’s show.

Hi, Bryan Here….

The nominations came in this morning and needless to say, I went into a fit of rage.  I mean I was so mad, I almost wrote a letter.  After going through the list of nominees, while some of the noms were well deserved, many were not, especially in the FILM categories.  There needs to be a serious uprooting process at the Golden Globes where everyone involved in voting needs to be replaced by others who know what they’re doing.

Hi Bryan Here…..

I love when I get to review vintage Disney animated films from my childhood.  It always takes me back to that time when I set in front of the old tube tv with  my VHS and watched away.  Disney has opened their vault to release the classic ‘Fox and the Hound’ film which is packed with the direct to video sequel ‘Fox and the Hound 2’.  The combo pack includes both the blu-rays of both films and the DVD versions.  It was such a treat to see this film again and to see the sequel.  Another great addition to the Disney line of Blu-rays.

Someone recently told me a good rule about country music is that ‘if you can twang it, you can sang it.’ I had to laugh at the notion, but when it comes to classic country music I couldn’t agree more with that sentiment.

Two of country’s most prominent icons, Ernest Tubb and Loretta Lynn, teamed up to unload “Mr. And Mrs. Used To Be” on the masses, a collection of songs about woe, heartache and joy between two people who could honesty love and/or hate each other with a smile upon their faces. However, these two respected crooners of country love keep it classy and conservative, as they trade line for line. Tubb’s authoritative vocal presence, coupled with Lynn’s Appalachian twang work well together in their duets, delivering the kind of country duet LP you’d expect to know and love.

G. Love and Special Sauce at the House of Blues

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 20th, 2011

Hi, MD here…

G. Love & Special Sauce is an alternative, blues, hip hop band from Philadelphia. They are known for their unique, “sloppy”, and “laid back” blues sound that encompasses classic R&B.

G. Love (Garrett Dutton) plays several different guitars during a set including one with a “G” engraved in the wood. He also plays the harmonica to add that blues feel into his songs.

You can tell G. Love loves to perform and has fun while doing it! He always does some impromptu free-styling during his set and invites crowd participation. Since this is March Madness, he decided to rap about basketball and then even mention Dirk Nowitzki – being in Dallas, it was like a little shout out to the city he was performing in. The crowd seemed to enjoy the personal touch.

What would you do if you saw a giant yellow truck with “Third Man Records” scrawled across the sides pull into a parking lot, and see Jack White step out armed with a white acoustic guitar as big as he is? Chances are, you would scream like a girl and know immediately you were in for a real treat.

The Third Man Rolling Record Store

Jack White, you son-of-a-gun…you did it again.

Not only is this dude a gifted musician, producer and business man, he is also a living patron saint of music, doing things most musicians and record execs could only fever dream about.

Behold his latest Third Man project, the “Rolling Record Store”, which is exactly as it sounds: a record shop on wheels.

Giving Mad Props To Jack White and Co.

by NapkinArt on Oct 19th, 2010

For those who haven’t been paying attention to the genius of Third Man Record’s Jack White since his band, The White Stripes, became a house-hold name, that must be a pretty big rock you are living under…

Excuse me, perhaps I should introduce myself first, before standing on my soap box for a few minutes. My name is Jonathon Kimbrell: artist, writer, culinary engineer and avid music appreciator. I’ll be your contributing writer/critic on music and such for Boomstick Comics for the duration of this flight.

Ok, getting back to the electioneering. I’ve been a fan of Jack White, his music, and essentially everything he touches for the last 10 years. I wish I could say my fandom has lasted a lot longer, but I first discovered the genius of Jack White and his music in 2000, while a freshman in college, a very impressionable time in my life, I must add. Ever since, I’ve been following his career and the innovations he and his crew at Third Man Records in Nashville, TN have been cooking up.

The White Stripes are a powerhouse of sound, especially for just two people. The Raconteurs are The White Stripes+, will a full on band and sound. Enter The Dead Weather, the new avant garde of dark rock and raw sexual emotion that is White and lead vocalist Alison Mosshart. Only the sexual stage chemistry of Jagger and Richards can rival this duo. If  I could have ever asked for the second coming of The Velvet Underground, it would be The Dead Weather. Are you still under that rock? Just go pick up any record Jack White is playing on and you’ll see the light. Might I suggest “Horehound” for starters?

In an odd an interesting age where vinyl is regaining its throne, no one would have ever suspected new frontiers could be found in the vinyl format, and its Jack White that is pioneering these frontiers. The Dead Weather’s “Sea of Cowards” vinyl is the first time I’ve ever heard of music being pressed into the actual label of the record. White’s new ‘Triple Decker Record’ is a 12″ single of “Blue Blood Blues” with an additional 7″ single embedded inside. Simply separate the casing of the 12″ record and voila, you have a second record to enjoy. (I will admit this brilliant invention is harder than hell to get your hands on, as there were only 300 copies made world-wide.) SXSW fans of Jack and Co. were also treated to ‘Texas-Sized’ vinyl this year, making available 8″ singles and 13″ full-length LPs, sighting that ‘things are bigger in Texas.’ This is entirely true, but then again, Jack likes his exclusive goodies just to fuck with us. However, his genius keeps us coming back for more, as we ponder what new invention he’ll come up with next.

Aside from his inventiveness, here is why I like Jack White: he’s saving rock and roll one vinyl record at a time. I also happen to think he is music’s hardest working man in showbiz, rightfully taking that honor from the late ‘Godfather of Soul’, James Brown, as White wears many hats. Not only does he play in like 5,000,000 bands or so, he also dons the role of producer, steering the ship of all the new talent that comes through his Third Man Records studio. Jack White is making the music industry exciting again, in a time where major labels are still pouring shitty music down our throats on a minute-by-minute basis, and where none of them are interested in seeking out and nurturing good talent anymore. Of course, everyone still has their distributor middle-man, but perhaps White is finding ways to deliver the goods straight to the consumer, whenever the hell he feels like it. What happened to the days when an artist could release 2-3 records within a calendar year? Perhaps Jack White knows what the people want, and he’s giving it to us.

I had the fortune to join White’s Third Man Records ‘Vault’ fan club service, for a monthly fee fans get access to exclusive goodies, like rare recordings, vinyl records, videos and other swell stuff that can be possibly hocked on eBay. As I await the next batch of exclusive goodies from The Vault, I’ll be enjoying the records I’ve been able to acquire from Third Man Records thus far. Look for my review of the live ‘Racontwoers’ vinyl that was released for Record Store Day 2010. Yeah, I’m a little late on that one, but hey…sometimes records don’t find you until the time is right.

Keep on keepin’ on, Jack. If music truly does need saving, I’ll bet the farm on you good sir.

To check out what Jack White and the gang are up to, visit Third Man Records online or in person.
