HAPPY HALLOWEEN

The Nightmare Before Christmas Happy Halloween everyone.  Lets dive in so you can continue your spooky activities for the day.  Back in 1993 when I saw Tim Burton was doing a stop motion film, I couldn’t get to the theater fast enough.  I have always been a fan of Tim Burton’s work.  And when there is Tim, there is a really good chance Danny Elfman is going to be a part of it as well.  As you can tell from the last post, I’m also a Danny Elfman fan.  I mean come on — a stop motion film previewing a talking skeleton with Tim and Danny, how can this be bad?  If you don’t already know……it isn’t. If you haven’t seen this movie let me sum it up for you.  It’s great.  It is about Jack Skellington who is...

  Hello, all.  Sorry that I haven’t posted in a while, but life seems to get in the way of the really fun stuff sometimes.  I was wondering what band to post about this week.  Since it has been awhile and while talking with my brother this week it came to me, OINGO BOINGO! Oingo Boingo was around from 1979-1995.  You are probably familiar with the song “Weird Science,” which was the title of the same movie.  If not, then I know you are aware of the frontman, Danny Elfman.  He has done the score for just about all of Tim Burton’s movies, The Simpsons theme song, co-wrote the soundtrack to the X-box game Fable, A Nightmare before Christmas, and the list goes on.  If you haven’t heard any of those………what rock are you living under? On to my personal...

Great scott! We bring to you a rad episode about one of the most beloved trilogy’s of all time. we are joined by Tobias and Blair to talk about Back to the future and why it works, and why its so great. Since 1985 this movie has not only influenced the people who watched it, but also pop culture. We dive into all of our personal experiences about the films and why we love them so much. From Marty being to coolest guy ever, to the technical directing of the film, all the way to the formula that makes the franchise appealing. We bring up why all three movies are good. How ‘old west’ was part three exactly, and why is part 2 so much fun. The dark character that Biff Tannen really is and how fun and humorous...
