TerrorVision

TerrorVisionBy Kai Wada Roath
Ambassador of Confusion Hill and host of the Super Shangri-La Show


"People of Earth, you must heed my warning. Destroy your satellite receivers, dismantle your communications systems, render your TV sets inoperable for the next 200 Earth years."
- Pluthar of Pluton

What happens when an alien energy beam surges down a mutant Hungry Beast to the Putterman’s house on Putterman Lane?

Well, who's hanging out at the Putterman's house anyway, you may ask. We got Grandpa Putterman, who is a crazy military survivalist who makes his own lizard tail jerky, little boy Sherman Putterman, his punk rock sister Suzy and her heavy metal boyfriend named O.D., and, of course, their parents - who happen to be swingers - and their two swinger friends who are enjoying their sex-themed Pleasure Dome wing of the house. And how could I not mention the late night horror host, Medusa, who likes to party. (For any of you Russ Meyer fans, Medusa is very mammerable, um…I mean memorable, and you may have a flash-back to seeing her on Night Court or when she played a ditzy Dolly Parton-ish character on the “It Takes Two to Watusi” episode of Mama’s Family.) Welcome to the world of TerrorVision!

Top 10 Must-Own TV Shows of All Time

Posted by The Bay Area Crew, March 1, 2017 07:10pm | Post a Comment

By Gabriel Wheeler

There are many great television shows, but what shows are actually worth watching over and over again? Here's the Top Ten of must-see and re-see television.

10. All in the Family (1971-1979)

In one of the rawest portrayals of an ignorant bigot, anti-hero Archie Bunker navigates serious issues of the '70s, often in opposition to those closest to him. The remains poignant while being hilarious. Topics like racism, rape, and drugs are but a few of the issues tackled in honest, funny, and thought-provoking ways. A must-watch for captives of 2017. 

All In The Family


9. Firefly (2002-2003)

Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, brought us this epic cowboys in space sci-fi action/drama. Failing to find an audience during its tenure, it quickly became a cult favorite on home video and syndication. The show centers on the ship Firefly and its crew, as they travel the galaxy trying to make a quick buck in perhaps not-so-honest yet morally responsible ways. Funny and well-written, it’s a shame there are only two seasons.

Horror fans from all over are singing the praises of Michael Scola and Jordan Rodarte since they threw an American Horror Story-themed wedding of a lifetime on October 29th in Los Angeles, California.

Being huge fans of AHS in general, especially Season Five: Hotel, we're happy to report that no detail was American Horror Story weddingspared at this grand event. Hosted in Downtown LA's Oviatt Penthouse, the facade of which was actually used in the show as Hotel Cortez, guests came decked out in their best 1920's garb. The invitations were gold-plated and engraved in the same font as the show's credits, and there was even an Art Deco wedding cake! The vows were officiated by world renowned Madonna impersonator, Nadya Ginsburg, (Michael is a BIG fan of M) and the rings were presented by "Pepper" actress herself, Naomi Grossman!

Did You See Mastodon on "Game of Thrones" Last Night?

Posted by Billy Gil, June 1, 2015 10:27am | Post a Comment

mastodon bandMetal titans Mastodon can add HBO stars to their resumes after appearing in last night's episode of Game of Thrones.

Spoiler alert: The band appeared as wildling warriors in last night's episode "Hardhome," in which Lord Commander of the Night's Watch Jon Snow tried to rally some wildlings to prepare for the oncoming battle with the White Walkers, only to have the undead come knock down their walls and decimate nearly everyone in sight, turning them into even more undead warriors. As far as TV sequences go, it doesn't get more metal.

Here's what the band's Brann Dailor (which is a pretty "Thrones"-ish name) had to say about it, as reported by Stereogum:

"It was such an incredible experience to be on set as extras for our collective favorite show Game Of Thrones and to be wildlings murdered and then brought back to life by White Walkers was beyond amazing. I watched my best friends Brent and Bill, murdered right in front of me as I myself was stabbed in the stomach and had my throat slit multiple times, and I didn’t mind at all. It made me love being in Mastodon even more. We are more than privileged and honored to have been a part of one of the greatest stories ever told on film, and the catering wasn’t bad either."

Mastodon previously submitted the song "White Walker" for the Catch the Throne Vol. 2 mixtape earlier this year.
