BL: Reign On Me

There’s a Spider-man story called Reign where Peter Parker. as an old man, has retired from crime fighting. For one reason or another he comes out of retirement a la Dark Knight Returns. Whatever the story is ok. Within Reign at some point Peter and Mary Jane get married. Then MJ gets cancer and dies. Peter feels bad about this because his, uh…bodily fluids are the cause of the cancer

My question is though: How come she didn’t gain superpowers? I’m just saying a little spider bite gave Peter his, and presumably Parker, uh…released more into his wife than that bite ever could.

She could’ve been the Amazing Parker-Woman! The proportional strength of perpetually 20-something year old man. The power not to be able to balance life and heroics, complain about it constantly, and ultimately make increasingly bad decisions about everything. I’d read that…

BOOSday: We’re Alive Podcast

BOOSday: We’re Alive

Trick or Treat! In honor of Halloween, I’m playing a trick on you for this Tunesday and posting it on a Thursday. How GHOULISH!

Also this Tunesday isn’t even a song or album. It’s a podcast! FIENDISH!

We’re Alive is an audio drama about a group of survivors during a zombie outbreak in Southern California. It’s like one of your parents’ old-timey radio shows about who knew what evil lurked in the hearts of men, only with better voice acting, sound effects, and an incredible score. This podcast is dripping with atmosphere and can juggle action, drama, romance, and (of course) horror.

We’ve all seen a lot of zombie fiction in the last decade, but this has some of the best writing I’ve seen (erm, heard) in a while. All of the characters are endearing and interesting. Even the zombies have some fascinating surprises in store for you. OMINOUS!

Listen to it on iTunes here, if that’s your thing, or download the files from their website here. Listener beware, you’re in for a scare.

Tunesday – Eminem Zelda Rap Mix

This song isn’t exactly “nerdcore,” but I’ve been on an Eminem binge since Sunday so just run with it.

The true title of this song is “Hellbound,” and the rappers you are hearing are Eminem, Masta Ace, and J-Black. I’d be surprised if you’ve heard of those last two. This song is from the album “Game Over” by Yosumi Records. I’d be surprised if you’ve heard of those last two too.

I discovered this song back into the P2P file sharing days when I was downloading all of the Zelda music I could find. The song was entitled “Eminem Zelda Mix”, three things relevant to my interests, so I downloaded it. The beat is actually a sample from SoulCalibur , “Sacrifice” by Junichi Nakatsuru. I discovered it the same night I discovered the trailer for SoulCalibur II, so imagine my excitement.

This is my favorite mainstream-ish songs with nerdy influences, followed closely by Cocoa Brovas “Super Brooklyn” and Li’l Flip’s “Game Over.” Not to be confused with Yosumi Records’ “Game Over.”

It also turns out that Eminem might be a bit of a closet nerd. The beginning of the song Rap God is sampled from a Captain America and Falcon comic and Marshall goes on to name drop Krypton and Asgard in the lyrics. Combine that with the numerous instances of superhero Cosplay and I think we have a fanboy.
