Friday LinkFrogging – 4/29/11

I came to a realization this week. That realization?  That my kids are getting older and at some point I’m going to have to explain the noble pursuit that is GonzoGeek to them. Sure, they understand that dear old dad and some of his friends have a website, but they don’t really understand what that means or involves.  It became even more apparent the other night when, upon looking at the forthcoming design of our update, they asked me why we had girls in bikinis o...

A thrilling and wildly entertaining film, TROLLHUNTER delivers truly fantastic images of giant trolls wreaking havoc on the countryside, with darkly funny adherence to the original Norwegian folklore. TROLLHUNTER screened at both the Tribeca an Sundance film festivals. It will be available on Ma...

Well here we are, 1/111th of the way to our epic Episode 666 blow out, and just when you thought everything was going to turn normal, J&L get served the surprise retirement of founding Judas Priest guitarist K.K. Downing to dissect . Along the way Loond also checks out Dokken live, the duo give Startruckers a listen, Loond goes  retro connoisseur with Blind Illusion, and they both  near meltdown regarding rumors that Big4Radio might permanently replace Liquid Metal on SiriusXM satellite radio.

METAL! - J&L

Music featured this episode:

Judas Priest - 'Sinner' (Unleashed In The East)

Dokken - 'Kiss of Death'

Startruckers - 'Down The River'

Blind Illusion - 'Blood Shower'

Roadsaw - 'Electric Heaven'

[Ed. Note: Liquid Metal will be back this Saturday, Apr. 30. It turned out to be a false alarm made worse by uninformed customer service interfacing with passionate and upset metal fans. At the time of recording, however, no-one really knew what was going on, and it seemed like a very real possibility.]

On tour now, and coming to J&L very soon...ACCEPT

Sketch of the Day:  Moon Knight - Finished

This'll be fun - for me at least. We'll start off with the SOTD from last week:  Moon Knight. There's a bad moon on the rise! Next, we'll begin cleanup in Adobe Illustrator.  If I have the good sense to erase most of my errant lines, clean us is relatively easy.   If I don't, it takes forever.   It is also during the clean up phase that I begin to figure out what I do and don't like about the pose.  And sin...

Friday LinkFrogging - 4/22/11

Good Friday to you all. We're back to once again take a trip to the corners of the internet, both sacred and profane. Why?  Because its what we do.  We're digital explorers.  We bring 'em back alive and let you view from behind the glass. Earlier this week, I was lamenting to the missus that I hadn't come up with a suitable cheesecake selection for this week.  We haven't hit the summer movie season which makes my life SO much easier and nob...

Super Is A Kick-Ass Take On The Hero Complex

There are a lot of great things to come out of our obsession with superhero culture - Hayden Panettiere and Joss Whedon directing a freakin’ AVENGERS movie, to name two.  I think my favorite aspect, though, is that the genre has moved so far into the mainstream that everyone has a superhero story and everyone is getting a chance to tell it, (Kenneth Branaugh and Thor, Joe Johnston and Captain America, Edgar Wright and Ant-Man, for Stan Lee’s sake). We’re so deep in it that...

Friday LinkFrogging - 4/15/11

Greetings from the Land of 'Geek kids. Today would normally be Tax Day, but since Washington, D.C. is closed down for Emancipation Day (?) you've got until Monday to "render unto Caesar." Until then, why don't you let us take your mind off all that with some links and cheesecake. This week's selection is the very rare double dip.  True, we've been featuring two pictures of our weekly selections for some time now, but today, for only the second time ever, we'll be featuring two ...

Summer Movies 2011

Every year about this time, we start to get more and more visuals about the upcoming summer movie season. I love summer movie season.  I don't have to think or worry about Oscar consideration.  I can just sit back, eat my popcorn, laugh and watch stuff blow up. And, really, isn't that what you want in a summer movie? After reviewing my list for last summer, I can only hope this year's batch is better (I'm looking at you Jonah Hex).  There are lots of spandex types and...

Sketch of the Day:  Moon Knight

I've always had a soft spot in my heart for Marvel's 'Batman'.  One of the first books I read regularly.  At one time I had everything he'd been in from 'Werewolf by Night' to the 'Hulk' magazines and up through his second title.   Who doesn't love an Egyptian God's  schitzo-billionaire agent of vengeance.   In fact, I think 'Agent of Vengeance' is about the only title they haven't tried to slap on one of Moonie's books. After they shoe-horned him into the West Coast ...
