Music Video Mondays

Welcome to another edition of Music Video Mondays. This weeks selection was one that came after hearing it on the radio. I used to love this song when it came out, but then forgot all about it, until now!

This weeks selection comes from a band that was formed to be "the world's worst band". In 1981, Bill Manspeaker & Joe Cannizarro formed Green Jellÿ (originally named Green Jell-O, after a friend suggested it because of "lime flavored Jell-O being the worst flavor of Jell-O", as well as the lack of talent from the band).

The band was known more for its antics, rather than their songs or talents. After a lawsuit, the band was renamed Green Jellÿ. Gaining a cult following (again, because of their onstage antics, rather than their talent), the band released Cereal Killer in 1992, with their actual hit song "3 Little Pigs"

The song reached prominence by hitting the charts at #17 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1993. The song was ranked #35 on VH1's 40 Most Awesomely Bad Metal Songs...Ever.

Never meant to be taken seriously, they are described as a "comedy heavy metal band", because of their lack of talent and their parody-like songs.*

Here it is, this weeks selection "3 Little Pigs". Enjoy!

Did You Know?

Green Jellÿ claimed that they were the "World's First Video Only Band" in order to get signed by Zoo Entertainment? The bluff worked, and Zoo Entertainment signed them; only they didn't actually know what they were doing, and had to learan about making videos on the fly. It took one year, and $50,000 later, but the result was the video only album, Cereal Killer. In 1993, Cereal Killer was finally released on cd.*

Music Video Mondays

This weeks Music Video Monday is by one of my most favorite artists of all time(and I'm not ashamed to say that either). Born Alicia Moore in 1979, this singer-songwriter is better known by her stage name of Pink (or stylized as P!nk). Pink has had hits from all 5 of her albums since rising to fame in 2000. This weeks song is off of her latest cd, "Funhouse". The song is called "Glitter in the Air". The song itself talks about love and taking a leap in faith. It was released as a single after her awesome performance at the Grammys. What's impressive about the video for this song is what she does in the video. The particular video that I posted just happens to be from the Grammys, where she received a standing ovation for her performance. Not only is it a great performance, but just hearing how good she is live is amazing! There are many artists who don't sound good live, and there are artists who sound like crap because of moving around and stuff. P!nk is not one of those artists. She is the real deal! Enjoy!

"Young Justice" Cartoon Series Trailer

Sooooo, a few years back (1998, to be exact), DC Comics created a group called "Young Justice". It first consisted of Robin (from Batman), Superboy (from Superman), and Impulse (from Flash). They grew to include members Wonder Girl (from Wonder Woman), Arrowette & the mysterious Secret. Basically, they were crime fighters who banded together to try to become the next generation of the Justice League. The team went through roster changes, and eventually developed into the Teen Titans (plus and minus members). DC Entertainment has finally made a cartoon out of the series. The animation looks good, and it looks a lot more serious than the Teen Titans cartoon that was produced a few years back. Hopefully, this cartoon will do well.

Thor Trailer

For those of you who don't know that Marvel is making a movie about this guy, well now you know. This is the "THOR" Teaser Trailer. I think this will be a good movie, but as always with comic book movies, I don't think I am going to hold my breath. Hopefully, it doesn't dissapoint, because it kinda sets the tone for the slew of new movies coming out from Marvel..... Enjoy!

**EDIT - So, it looks like the fine folks at Paramount have kindly asked that the trailer get taken down....damn me & my timing of puting up cool posts!!! Anyhoo, if I come across it, I will surely repost it.**

***EDIT UPDATE- try here:

I just checked it and it appears to be working there!***

This is Funny....hopefully!

So I came across this "interview" between with Zach Galifianakis & Steve Carell, on Zach's show "Between Two Ferns" , for FUNNY OR DIE.COM. It doesn't go as planned, and goes on a different path than expected. It's from the Funny or Die website, so that's saying something too!

** I had to put up the link only, because even though you get the code to embed the video, it doesn't go directly to the video; it goes to an old video of Will Farrell, which is funny, but not what I want. This is the way with most of their codes for videos. It always goes back to that default video, which I find EXTREMELY annoying, but it's their site and their clips, so they can do with what they wish. **


Zach Galifianakis & Steve Carell "Interview"

Avengers Assemble!

Over at Comic Book, they posted a link to a "leaked trailer" of the new AVENGERS movie coming out. It's not really a "trailer" at all, so don't get too excited. But, in my opinion, this "trailer" is a good way to get some buzz going for the movie, due out in 2012. I'm not sure how long this will be up (although, why it would be taken down I have no idea; it's not like it shows anything), so watch it while you can!!!!

....And I'm Back!

Yup, I'm back! Apologies for keeping my fans waiting!

I gotta admit, burnout sucks. Having no real desire to blog (even though I have a TON of new stuff to post) really saddens me. But hey, what can you do? Just try to get that desire back, and start posting again, I suppose! So, here it is, the first blog post back to blogging....

So, if you haven't heard, there is a new movie coming out that is based on a popular property that has been out of the public eye for quite some time. What is this long standing property? Or should I say, WHO is this property? I'll give you a clue....he resides at Jellystone Park. Give up? It's none other than the one, the only, YOGI BEAR!

Recently, with, I presume, the success of the Chipmunks movies, that studio heads want to make lightning strike again, this time with Yogi Bear getting the CGI treatment. Will it be a good movie? A flop? Who knows! But, listen to the voices, and see if you can guess them!

See ya lata with some more new stuff!
