AT 8:29 PM THE BOMBS WILL HIT – BE PREPARED

I’ve been posting on Facebook, but it’s getting slower and slower. The Sci-Fi Guys website is hosted on a server cluster in Germany, so maybe we will be up a little longer than the US servers. I don’t know. I can’t be certain of anything at this point other than that the human race is on the brink of extinction. Here’s what I’ve posted so far:

Episode 9 Is On The Air!

I should have posted this weeks ago, but the latest episode of The Sci-Fi Guys is on the air! Watch it right here! Episode 9: “BaconFest” features an exclusive interview with author Kim Harrison and more bacon than you can clog an artery at. We’ve got a new Saturday showtime in addition to our established Tuesday night timeslot, new intro graphics, and much, much more! (Alright, not “much, much more,” but isn’t that exclamation point exciting?)

Luthor vs. Skeletor

I saw this at TRU the other day, and almost bought it for its sheer weird 1980s wonderfulness. How does this happen? Who makes the decision to cross these franchises and pit these two characters against each other? What insane genius decided to sculpt and color these characters in their early ’80s appearances? And why the hell does it cost $30? ‘Cause I think if it had been $25 I would probably own it right now. But $30? Nope. They lost me. Just barely, but they lost me.

By the way, Mattel, if you release a Darkseid vs. Hordak set, I promise I will own that shit at any price. Just throwin’ it out there.

In Memoriam: Alexander Courage

Don’t know how I missed this one, folks, but this guy was a legend so I’m posting it now. Courage was most famous for composing the theme to Star Trek, but he did a lot of other great work in sci-fi, both as a composer and orchestrator, including Superman, Jurassic Park, The Mummy, Superman IV: The Quest For Peace, Lost In Space, and Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea.
