It’s Record Store Day!
Just a reminder that today’s the day to hit your local independent vinyl shoppe to celebrate Record Store Day. There will be a number of cool special edition vinyls and picture discs to grab, Last year Richard picked up this awesome David Bowie picture disc which he talks about it in our first episode.
David Bowie has another slick disc for this year’s event, so you can bet Richard will be hunting around the stores for that one too.
If you haven’t seen this yet, you’re in for a treat. In Fangoria’s new YouTube show Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian gets a privileged tour of Rick Baker’s Display Room.
It’s everything you could hope to see from the man behind countless legendary effects in An American Werewolf In London, Star Wars, Men In Black, and well, the list goes on and on.
The bonus? Some fantastic commentary by Bob Burns.
Glen Mazzara, Executive Producer & Showrunner for this past season’s The Walking Dead is a guest this week on Richard’s Entertainment Extra radio show on Newstalk 1010 (airing this Saturday at 4:30pm).
Have a listen and find out how Glen Mazzara went from being a hospital administrator to showrunner of one of the best shows on TV. Hear is thoughts about screenwriting, Roger Ebert, and his reaction to Norman “Daryl” Reedus becoming a sex symbol.
Hey All You Zombies!! Episode 41# - Walking Dead, Monkey Toes, & Pliers
It’s been our most popular topic and so we’re devoting an entire episode to the Season 3 finale of The Walking Dead. It’s been a whirl of redneck redemption, psychopathic nuttiness, and a taut moment involving monkey toes and pliers. Too bad we’re going to have to wait until the Fall to see it continue.
The Ontario Specialty Company Is Now Open Online!
Our favourite shoppe for retro goods, wind-up toys, and novelties is back open for business as a web store.
This is the place Richard introduced and we explored in episodes two and three.
Make sure to check out the video they have of some of their classic wind-ups and then expect to lose a few hours going through their many categories including their international toys, inflatables, magic tricks, sunglasses, and more.
The web is full of Geek stores, but rarely ones in Canada where shipping is reasonable. Let’s hope they do well enough to expand.
