IMDb Video: Doc Savage: The Man of Bronze

Hilarious, hilarious 1975 movie trailer. Based on the comic book character. You'd think an action/superhero movie trailer would be full of excitement, action. WRONG! He spends his time doing astronomy and working on inventions that "one day" MAY be useful to mankind (maybe not).

Now available from the Warner Brothers archive

I just might have to buy this...


Americans are crazy??!?!

Recently, I added Google Analytics to my Blogger page. I haven't done this since I used to have newmusicmachine.com website and GA didn't exist back then. I was always fascinated by how much information is captured when you visit a website. One of them is what kind of words people get to your site from search engines. Even though I've only started this week, it's unanimous - the people of the world are doing lots of searches for "Crazy Americans!" (or some variant). So of course, I'm pumping up my hits with this article title!


Beatles jump into 'Rock Band'

Beatles jump into 'Rock Band'

The rumors finally come true. Beatles Rock Band in September. With instruments designed to look like the Beatles instruments. Man, this Rock Band game/concept is just a giant money machine!

There's even a temporary website to get you excited. Number 9? :)


Overanalyzing the "Classics": Smokey & The Bandit

Smokey & The Bandit was on HDnet movies channel the other day (in HD natch). I watched it and I have some questions.

1) They did all this for COORS!!?!?!? WTF? Go drink Bud or some beer.

2) Why when the Bandit goes over a broken bridge his Trans-Am flies into the air as if there was some ramp but when the police cars following him try to do the same, they fall straight into the river??!? What is this, the A-Team?

3) Why didn't the Snowman hate the Bandit? All he does is drive around real fast avoiding the police and getting chicks. Isn't Snowman really doing all the work? Bandit is just occasionally a diversion so that Snowman doesn't get pulled over for speeding? Couldn't they have just taken the tickets, made the party and pay the tickets off with the cash they got?

4) Paul Williams is really that short!?! I didn't realize!

5) On a wild chase through the countryside, how do Bandit's female fans set up a "GO BANDIT" banner in the exact location he is going to drive by? How on earth would they know he would drive on that road at that time? He was changing roads like crazy...he didn't have time to CB his constant position!

6) How come Sally Field's character never tell Bandit that she's being chased because the cop is the father of her to-be husband? Wouldn't he be pissed about that after doing all that work?

Michael Jackson Auction - Catalog List - 2009

Michael Jackson is selling his stuff. Make sure to check out catalogs number 5 & 6 which is all of his games and Disneyana stuff. A lot of bargains on arcade games. Nothing too crazy...but he does have in-store display units of some pretty rare home videogame systems that are priced pretty low ($100 for 3DO display). Doesn't mention the condition either though. Catalog's 7 & 8 are coming (soon?) and will have his memorabilia.

All Virgin Megastores to close by summer - 3/3/2009 - Video Business

The end of an era. Granted, the recent relevance of Virgin Megastore was marginalized greatly by Amazon and iTunes but back in the day, they were pretty good stores (sans the Mills stores).
I used to work at Virgin and I'm a little sad to see them go. Never got to make it out to the Times Square store. The old Hollywood location used to be my favorite. Good place to check out the latest stuff especially import CDs/records. Well, we will always have our pleasant memories. Thanks Virgin Megastore and so long!
