The Happiness of the Katakuris

by on Apr.28, 2008, under Around the World, Horror

Here is an excerpt from Takashi Miike’s brilliant horror/comedy/musical The Happiness of the Katakuris. The story is based around a family who move to the country and buy a bed and breakfast in order to be closer together and away from the city. Unfortunately, the B&B is so isolated they don’t get any guests at all for a very long time. When they finally start getting borders, they all mysteriously die.

This scene takes place after their very first guest commits suicide and the family discovers his body.

I’ve Got a Girl Named Gretsch, by Rockin’ Henri

by on Apr.23, 2008, under Around the World, Original Bands

The flagging rockabilly revival has been revitalized, spearheaded by none other than Netherlands own Rockin’ Henri!

In less than a year this prolific songster has already posted about 200 original songs, nearly all recorded in what seems to be the front room of his grandmothers house, wearing the same blue and black bowling shirt. On top of this he fronts several bands and has released his first official full-length album, Great Rockin News.

All of his songs are really good, but in our opinion nothing has quite the bite as I’ve got a girl named Gretsch.

Guitar Wolf – Wild Zero

by on Apr.11, 2008, under Around the World, Horror, Original Bands

From one of the greatest, noisiest, loudest garage punk Jet Rock’n'Roll bands ever to come out of Japan, comes the greatest Rock’n'Roll horror zombie musical ever – Wild Zero. This movie has everything; Guitar Wolf, zombies, exploding heads, trans gendered love affairs, microphones spitting fire, UFOs, gunfights, car chases…what more could you ask for?

This scene takes place during a Guitar Wolf gig while they perform Roaring Blood, and should give you a good idea of what to expect. The guy in the tight white shorts is an evil club owner bent on killing them,

The DVD also features a drinking game. A pint glass appears whenever a character drinks, says “Rock ‘n Roll,” or combs their hair, or when a head explodes, something else explodes, or fire shoots out of something. Again, what more could you ask for?

This movie is also available for rental from GreenCine. Sign up, they’ve got nearly everything.

Piper’s Pit with Jimmy ‘Superfly’ Snuka

by on Apr.09, 2008, under Wrestling

One of the highlights of the WWF back in the 80′s was when Roddy Piper was given his own segment, Piper’s Pit. He was the greatest heels in the history of the sport, and my all-time favorite. In all of the Pits classic moments, the most memorable was undoubtedly when Jimmy ‘Superfuly’ Snuka appeared as a guest on his show.

This clip is extra incredible, because it not only contains the Superfly interview, but also his follow-up interview on TNT where Vince McMahon and Lord Alfred Hayes asked him to justify his actions.

If you need more, check out Roddy’s autobiography, an interesting and hilarious read.

Trollkotze

by on Apr.07, 2008, under Evil, Original Bands

Trollkotze (translation: Troll’s Vomit) is a Black Metal comedy band from Germany.

Featured here is the brilliant song, Im Märchenwald (In the Fairytale Forest), which comes from their first album The Microwave is down. It seems their releases are limited editions, very limited. They only printed 10 copies of Microwave, and their second album Violence in the Forest which featured such anthems as How come the Beer in the Bass? and Gib mir Deinen Stromkram(Give me your current stuff) was limited to 25 copies. They are currently recording their eagerly awaited fourth album, I’m sure it will live up to everyones expectations.

Without further ado:

The Greatest Black Metal band of all time.

by on Apr.05, 2008, under Evil, Original Bands

Thats a bold statement, but I stand behind it. After you see this video you’ll have no choice but to agree. My grasp of German leaves a little to be desired, but the music, the visuals, and the tone of this evil dirge says everything you need to know.

Usually black metal fans are very laid back, but this audience goes insane. Its a little scary to watch, it reminds me of the beatlemania epidemics of the 60′s.

Army of Darkness – The original opening

by on Apr.01, 2008, under Film, Horror

I’m not going to describe what happens in this clip, because you have eyes and ears. Other parts as well, hopefully.
This was one of the cool extras from the directors cut DVD, which also includes alternate endings and deleted scenes.
If you’re a fan of the Evil Dead series make it a point to see this one.
