Sailor Moon has been rebooted and titled Sailor Moon CRYSTAL!
I know what you’re thinking: “This finally explains those huge, f*cked up eyes!” But NO, Tina! The girls do not spend the entire first episode looking for a pair of 10 dollar Oakleys at gas station, cleaning their apartment frantically while leaving cryptic dark answering messages for friends they haven’t spoken to in years — that’s a DIFFERENT type of crystal episode — but it does still involve an evil queen. Check out what it’s really all about below:

Based on Naoko Takeuchi’s legendary manga series, Sailor Moon Crystal retells the story of Sailor Moon, the Pretty Sailor Guardian of love and justice. Usagi Tsukino may be a little clumsy and a bit of a crybaby, but she’s got spirit. One day this cheerful eighth-grader meets Luna, a black cat with a crescent moon mark on her forehead, who gives Usagi a special brooch that transforms her into Sailor Moon! Now Usagi is on a mission to protect a princess, find her fellow Guardians, and keep the Legendary Silver Crystal out of the hands of the evil Queen Beryl.

!! OMG, grab the Plutonian Nyborg! Robert Rodriguez to bring HEAVY METAL to TV? !!

2008-11-13-heavy_metal.jpg
Grindhouse and From Dusk Till Dawn director Robert Rodriguez was interviewed at SXSW this week, where he was asked about plans to adapt the 1981 dark fantasy, erotic horror cartoon franchise HEAVY METAL. Robert seemed optimistic about the possibility of a reboot, discussing format and a home for its return:

“Well, now that I’ve got a television network, potentially we could go into television…”
“It would be a variation of different types of animation … Classic, some hand drawn, some digital, some mixed media. That was always great about ‘Heavy Metal’ is everybody did a different thing, story dependent.”

We think this is JUST what television needs! Taarna the Taarakian needs to come back to Earth and show all these filthy Hollywood bitches how to properly wear out some big hair, knee-high stripper boots, and a PVC teddy while blaring the Sabbath!
Will you be watching if HEAVY METAL hits TV?

!! OMG, the lost tape: 1993 Kurt Cobain interview gets the cartoon treatment by PBS !!

Screen Shot 2014-02-20 at 10.29.04 PM.png
PBS has this segment called “Blank on Blank” where they animate old audio interviews, often from music greats that are no longer with us. This month, they put a rare 1993 Kurt Cobain interview to ink and paper, and now you can listen to the lost interview with an animation to accompany it.
The Nirvana frontman (who would have been 47 years old yesterday) talks about growing up as a child, hanging out with mostly women, who he listened to, and questioning his sexuality:

“I even thought that I was gay. I thought that might be the solution to my problem.”
