Flash Gordon Holiday Special

Flash Gordon 2014 Holiday Special
Written by Dan McCoy, Elliot Kalan, and Stuart Wellington
Art by Lara Margarida, Stephen Downey and Joseph Cooper
Colors by Omi Remalante
Letters by Simon Bowland
Covers by Evan Shaner & Jordie Bellaire and Ken Haeser & Blair Smith
Dynamite Entertainment
Cover A | Cover B
Release Date: December 17, 2014
Cover Price: $5.99

The Flash Gordon 2014 Holiday Special is a gift in itself. I mean, how many OTHER publishers put out Holiday specials this year? I believe Dynamite was one of only two. And what better character to get his own Holiday special than Flash Gordon? Sure, it would’ve been interesting to see a Holiday book from either The Shadow or Doc Savage or Red Sonja or even Battlestar Galactica, but in my opinion, the Flash Gordon universe offered the most opportunity story-wise, and the creative teams didn’t disappoint.

Well, it was bound to happen… someone has made a X-mas parody of “Year Zero” by those Satanic Swedes Ghost B.C. The song, which features a chorus including the chant of “Hail Satan” has now been spoofed in the form of “Hail Santa.”

The track is by brothers Dan and Jack Wagoner and features lyrics entirely about the jolly old elf. Check it out here below. I’ve also included the original Ghost B.C. track below for those unfamiliar. “Year Zero” appears on the Ghost B.C. album Infestissumam.

Obama: Sony Made A Mistake Not Releasing ‘The Interview’; Studio Responds
eelyajekiM   |  

The Interview

Sony Pictures currently has no plans on releasing The Interview in any format. But this is not just about the studio canceling the release of a movie; the current situation in Hollywood has gained international attention. U.S. Intelligence confirmed that the hackers who broke into the studio’s computer network, leaking emails and acquiring confidential and personal data, were the North Koreans. Though NATO applauded Sony for pulling the film’s release for the safety of audiences after the hackers threatened “9/11-style attacks” on any theaters showing the film, celebrities and a majority of moviegoers were displeased with the decision. Many say that this is an attack on our freedom of speech and that it sends a message that the U.S. is willing to let foreign tyrants dictate to and censor us.

In his final press conference of 2014, President Barack Obama talked about the recent controversy, saying that Sony “made a mistake” not releasing James Franco and Seth Rogen‘s political comedy, which involves a plot to assassinate the current North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Meanwhile, the studio has pulled all promotions of the film, trailers, clips, posters, and banners after the hackers made a new threat.

Black Metal Friday: “Where Mountains Pierce The Sky” by Panopticon
Ides Bergen   |  

Panopticon Band Photo

Panopticon is a one-man black metal project out of Louisville, Kentucky. Multi-instrumentalist Austin Lunn is the man behind the music and prefers to remain in the shadows while his art does the talking for him. And speak it does… in volumes. Panopticon’s fourth album, 2012′s Kentucky, is probably the most groundbreaking and important black metal album that America has ever produced. The album’s deft fusion of Appalachian folk music to traditional black metal is both jarring and breathtaking.

Never one to rely upon black metal’s tired Satanic cliches, Lunn describes Panopticon as “Anarcho Pagan Black Metal.” However, recent releases have seen him veering away from politics toward a more introspective and contemplative point of view. The most recent Panopticon record, Roads to the North, continues to expand upon this subject matter.

Here from Roads to the North is the stunning track “Where Mountains Pierce The Sky.”

‘The Colbert Report’: Stephen Colbert’s Celebrity Singalong Send-Off (Video)
Empress Eve   |  

Stephen Colbert The Colbert Report series finale

Last night, Stephen Colbert signed off in the final episode of The Colbert Report, his long-running political satire talk show on Comedy Central, and was surrounded by celebrity ensemble to give him a proper send-off.

As the series finale drew to a close, Colbert began to sing the 1939 British song “We’ll Meet Again,” and as he walked across the studio, his friend and fellow Comedy Central host Jon Stewart appeared. The two joined hands, then walked over to Randy Newman playing the tune on the piano. Once the first verse was over, the cameras panned across the studio to show celebrities and former guest singing along. Amongst the crowd were Bryan Cranston, Patrick Stewart, George Lucas, Willie Nelson, James Franco, Barry Manilow, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Peter Frampton, Cindi Lauper, New York Mayor Bill DiBlasio, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, and even Big Bird and Cookie Monster!

Watch the heartwarming send-off here below.
