Brett Nachman   |

The Oxford Dictionary defines a flash mob as “a large public gathering at which people perform an unusual or seemingly random act and then disperse.” While these acts seemed to be all the rage a few years ago, they still remain popular for their originality and entertainment value. Disney enters the picture when you consider how many individuals set their YouTube flash mob videos to Disney music – or, in some cases, within the Disney parks themselves.

Here are eight awesome flash mob videos that will make you want to get on your feet and join in!

The GoD List Banner

Each and every week, I, “I am Groot!” Henchman 21 and “I too am Groot!” Empress Eve read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics.

After the rush of San Diego Comic-Con last week, it’s a bit of a mellow week this time, which means it’s a good week to step out and try some books you may have missed or try some new things. Since we’re all a little worn out from a busy weekend, I’m going a little light this week. Now if you don’t mind, I’m going to catch up on some sleep while you dive into The GoD List!

Massive Metal Monday: “Lights Out” By UFO
Ides Bergen   |  

UFO Band Photo 1977

With the title track of their barn-burner 1977 album Lights Out, here is the classic lineup of UFO – watch the video here below.

This performance was filmed live at the Roundhouse Theater in London on June 12, 1977 and features guitar legend Michael Schenker laying down one of rock’s most iconic solos. If you like this, be sure to check out the band’s 1979 release Strangers in the Night, which many people (myself included) consider to be the greatest live album ever recorded.

Black Metal Friday: Bathory “Reaper”
Ides Bergen   |  

Quorthon Bathory

Last week we examined the origin of the term black metal via Venom’s second album, which gave the genre its name. In this week’s edition of Black Metal Friday we examine what many consider to be the first true example of the black metal sound and aesthetic. Listen to the sample below.

Bathory was a Swedish band founded by 17-year-old singer and guitarist, Thomas Forsberg aka Quorthon in 1983. The band was named after notorious Hungarian countess Elizabeth Bathory who was rumored to have tortured and killed hundreds of girls and bathed in the blood of virgins to retain her youth. Venom had also name checked her with the song “Countess Bathory.”

Here below with the third track from their self-titled debut album is Bathory, performing the track “Reaper.”

This is one adventure you don’t want to miss before it leaves the gate – er, theaters.

The GoD List: Comics For July 23, 2014
Henchman21   |  

The GoD List Banner

Each and every week, I, “Where you at, Eve?” Henchman 21 and “Comic Con International: San Diego, Baby!” Empress Eve read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. Naturally, we look forward to some more than others. I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of our pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of July 23, 2014. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

Well, it’s Comic Con International: San Diego (still using the full name of the show) and that means lots of people packing, going to the airport, dealing with security, all that jazz. It also means that comic book companies are releasing a lot of product this week, so we have got a lot to talk about. And if Comic-Con wasn’t enough for comic fans this week, DC has also decided that today is Batman Day, in honor of the character’s 75th anniversary. So we’ve got that going for us. Which is nice. So dive in, because there is just too much to list today and I find myself with a lot to write about for this week’s The GoD List!

Con Report: San Japan: Samurai 7
Lord Hobbitsfork   |  

Dealers Room San Japan 7

I’m a strange duck when it comes to anime conventions. I’m not into panels or cosplay competition, but I love the colorful sea of fans, the dealers’ room, artists’ alley, and of course, the anime, which is why I really go to anime conventions in the first place. Sure, I can always watch anime on my own, and I frequently do – and there’s plenty of online streaming content that makes that task even easier now – but there’s still something about enjoying a well-animated drama or comedy in a room full of people who are into the same stuff that you’re into that you can’t experience on your own.

That’s why, when I knew back in April that I was coming back to San Antonio this summer, I went online and bought a ticket for San Japan: Samurai 7 at the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center.
