@TheMightyMollusk WWE Raw is on tonight. By the third hour, it'll probably feel the same, minus the actual physical trauma.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2016 - 09:51 AM)

I think I'd rather punch myself in the nuts.

@  Dracula : (26 September 2016 - 09:34 AM)

I think I'll watch Godzilla versus Gigan instead

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (26 September 2016 - 09:32 AM)

Hillary versus Trump tonight. Oh boy.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2016 - 06:53 AM)

I think I'm just too used to metal to not understand the lyrics.

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 September 2016 - 06:02 AM)

it's a vile interruption, chess the scripture way

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 03:49 AM)

I've had versions where the issue doesn't come up (or at least doesn't come up in the part I notice the most), but the version that got remastered for Bluray and DVD releases have it.

@  Nevermore : (26 September 2016 - 02:05 AM)

I initially misheard "flying tools of torment" as "we're flyin' into some torment".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2016 - 01:08 AM)

If it's a problem with all released versions, maybe the original audio source was itself damaged?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 09:30 PM)

I wish they'd relase a remastered version that fixed the audio and included at least had an option to have the text crawl rather than the credits at the start.

@  Telly : (25 September 2016 - 09:27 PM)

tryin to buy the movie from amazon for $20-ish. the price of it has been fluctuating like crazy. not a day has gone by that it hasnt dropped to one price and then gone back up a few hours later. never seen a price fluctuate so much

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:57 PM)

Then again, a lot of versions of the movie had pretty bad sound quality, even the most recent blu-rays mess it up in places, so it's not as much our fault if we misheard stuff.

@  Arazyr : (25 September 2016 - 07:28 PM)

When I first heard it, half of it may as well have been in a foreign language, for all I could make out. (Of course, I can say that about most music...)

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:14 PM)

I can't remember entirely, and I can't "hear" anything but the actual lyrics now, but I remember "I am born to hurt you, I'll break the boundless sky" as how my brain parsed the first words.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 07:01 PM)

So what did you hear?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 06:39 PM)

I almost completely misinterpreted the lyrics for that song for ages, and when I did find out what they were I thought my idea of the lyrics was better.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 06:29 PM)

So apparently the 2016 remake of "Instruments of Destruction" is out. I'm still waiting for an Amazon download to become available, but the clips I heard thus far sound cool. They're using the uncensored lyrics!

@  Bass X0 : (25 September 2016 - 03:02 PM)

Oh, all the talk about GNR Mega Man names and such, and I thought maybe people were talking about me for a sec. XP

@  Xellos : (22 September 2016 - 05:25 PM)

Neon Tiger's stage music from Mega Man X3 was also pretty much straight from Guns 'N Roses' "My Michelle". X5 also renamed all the Mavericks as references to GNR.

@  Dracula : (22 September 2016 - 02:26 PM)

the band name is Journey btw.

@  Bass X0 : (22 September 2016 - 02:25 PM)

i never heard Journey before today (BBC R2 Ken Bruce Show) but recognised it immediately.

@  ShadowMan024 : (22 September 2016 - 02:15 PM)

Shade Man's theme sounds like a mariachi song.

@  ShadowMan024 : (22 September 2016 - 02:13 PM)

Yeah. Lots of Mega Man songs are copied from bigger songs.

@  Bass X0 : (22 September 2016 - 12:50 PM)

Did Capcom copy Elec Man's stage theme from Journey by Faithfully?

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 September 2016 - 11:33 AM)

Things that make you go "blergh".

@  ShadowMan024 : (22 September 2016 - 10:54 AM)

I just received a bit of depressing news.

Actor Glenn Shadix, co-star of such films as Beetlejuice, PotA, Heathers, Demolition Man and voiceover artist in animated series such as Teen Titans, Jackie Chan Adventures, Duckman, and The Mask, passed away on Monday from a fall in his home.

I worked with Glenn one time when he attended a memoribilia/toy convention in New Jersey shortly after the Tim Burton PotA movie was released.

He was a very warm gentleman and was very politle to everyone who came up to his table to just say hello.

A shame he died at such an early age but from what I've been told he had been pretty ill for the past few years.

Rest In Peace, Mr. Shadix

He had a very distinctive voice. A real shame we'll never get to hear it again.

RIP Otho.


Time to watch Beetlejuice in his honor.

QUOTE
In tragic news out of Alabama, character actor Glenn Shadix has been reported dead. He was 58 years old.

Shadix was probably best known for playing the quirky interior designer 'Otho' for the yuppie family who moves into Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis' home in Tim Burton's Beetlejuice, after the lead characters "perish" around the beginning of the movie. He was present in the memorable (and hilarious) scene when the ghosts cause the living to break out into "Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)" by Harry Belafonte.

Tim Burton would later include him in The Nightmare Before Christmas and the 2001 adaptation of Planet of the Apes.

Seinfeld fans will remember Glenn Shadix as Jerry's landlord in the episode "The Apartment." He also had a recurring role in the HBO series Carniv?le.

A large portion of Shadix's acting credits comes from voice work. He can be heard on several animated series, including Jackie Chan Adventures, The Mask, and Dinosaurs (not animated, but still requiring voice acting, and a damn awesome show!)

Glenn Shadix (born William G. Scott) was openly gay. In the video below, he discusses his early experiences with "aversion therapy" when he believed he could "cure" his homosexuality.

Glenn Shadix reportedly died after his wheelchair tipped over and he hit his head. The funeral will occur on September 11.


I...didn't know he was wheelchair bound.
