Things That Are Awesome For 12/15/08

Gonna try to make this a Monday thing.

Things that are awesome, and why.

Hey guys, you know what’s awesome?

Super Art Fight.

Why? Well, the next show is THIS Saturday, and we’re all getting excited for it.  Hell, the excitement even flowed into the world of nerdcore, as seen in this video featuring MC Lars and YT Cracker.

For more on the show, you know where to go.

Hey guys!

You know what else is awesome?

BRUTAL LEGEND!

Haven’t heard of it?  Well, it’s this sweet action-RPG due out next year.  Featuring Jack Black as voice talent, it’s set in a world where metal is king. And super serious.

Not sold? Check out the trailer below.

Until next week, I’m Marty Day…and those things are AWESOME.

More Japanese McDonald’s Love

You may have noticed a bizarre trend here at Blast-O-Rama.  We really LOVE McDonald’s Japan.

I’ve gone on record before, as a child – big fan of McDonalds.  As an adult?  Not so much (although I get a craving 1-2 times a year).

But there’s something very intrigiung to me about an intensely American corporation such as McDonald’s and how their menu is reconfigured, changed, or even in some cases, completely thrown out when it’s brought over to the land of the rising sun.

Despite the documentation of some of the surreal foodstuffs available in the Nippon McD’s, there hasn’t been a comprehensive look at the McDonald’s Japan menu.

UNTIL NOW.

You can thank the fine folks at Tofugu.com for this one.

How sad is it that if I ever make it to Japan, I’ll just have to experience McDonald’s Japan for myself?

Sundance Is Lookin’ GOOOOOOD!

Here I was, ready to write off 2009 movie-wise with the (hopeful?) exception of Watchmen.

Looks like this years Sundance Film Festival has quite a bit to say about that.

The lineup for the most-prestigious film festival in indie filmmaking is looking good, with the Charlyne Yi-Michael Cera psuedo-bio pic Paper Hearts, the John Krasinski (that’s Jim from the Office) directed adaptation of Brief Interviews With Hideous Men, and most surprisingly, the Patton Oswalt starring Big Fan, which features Oswalt as a HUGE Giants fan who deals with the fall out when he gets beat up by his favorite player.

I guess indie filmmaking will make ’09 as worthwhile as the big blockbusters did this past year.  I hope.

Hey, Jami!  Are you going this year?
