    Cronenberg Burlesque! Videos, Photos, Tassels!

    Last month, in the midst of prepping our David Cronenberg special edition magazine, we reported on an unusual event in the form of MISS ROSE’S DAVID CRONENBERG BURLESQUE, part of the celebrated and saucy Burlesque performer’s larger show, the Philadelphia-based MISS ROSE’S SEXPLOITATION FOLLIES. In the piece, most of the New Flesh overlord’s filmography was re-interpreted for the arse and tassels set.

    “DRUMHELLAR” #1 (Comic Review)

    Psychic detectives are a dime a dozen. Every coma patient with a bump on his noggin has a story to tell about your dead grandmother’s will, your love life, and “do you know someone whose name starts with a B?” Even comic books are overrun with spiritual mediums, from the classic Dr. Strange, to the more modern John Constantine and Cal McDonald, and even pushing to the future with Judge Dredd’s mind-reading police associates. So why in the world would Image Comics introduce yet another trench-coat toting, cigarette-chomping, down-on-his-luck investigator of the weird into the already clogged cake-hole of entertainment? Because it’s actually pretty good. While the initial idea of DRUMHELLAR might sound like another rehash, the Alex Link and Riley Rossmo-created series manages to set itself apart with a dynamic art style and hungry passion from the latter.

    Last Night of the Scarecrow Video?

    Earlier this month, it was announced that Blockbuster Video would close its remaining stores for good, having been taken out by the plentiful Redbox kiosks and streaming operations such as Netflix. I was not saddened in the least by this news; over the last two decades, Blockbuster helped drive many independently owned rental stores out of business. I consider myself lucky that I did not have to go through life only having Blockbuster to rely on for my movie-watching needs, because in my neighborhood exists one of the biggest rental libraries in the world, Seattle’s Scarecrow Video. But in a world where the destroyer of video stores has been destroyed, Scarecrow is struggling to stay afloat.

    “CASTLEVANIA: LORDS OF SHADOW COLLECTION” (Game Review)

    Most long-running game series (SUPER MARIO, FINAL FANTASY, etc) avoid the potential hazards of a strong “mythology” by keeping it simple (Mario is good, things that he can stomp on are bad) or starting from scratch every time out (save for Chocobos and guys named Cid).  Other series, such as CASTLEVANIA, haven’t had long-term goals in mind when they were designed, but kept expanding on the initial storyline, resulting in a complicated “canon” that can scare off new fans, while also decreasing the appeal for older fans who’ve grown tired of trying to make sense of its narrative (RESIDENT EVIL is an even bigger offender of this).  Some folks at Konami agreed, which is why LORDS OF SHADOW is not only a completely standalone affair in terms of CASTLEVANIA lore, but also planned to be a definitive open and shut trilogy that will wrap up with LORDS OF SHADOW 2 in 2014.
