Vanilla Ice Thinks The New Turtles Rap Is Less Than ‘Magical’

5 Aug

GQ quoted The Iced One as saying:

With respect to all of the artists, the song doesn’t really do it for me. It feels a little artificial—what I mean by that is that it sounds like a bunch of executives in the corporate world put it together. It really does not fit the theme of the Ninja Turtles legend. I think you have to understand, and be a true Ninja, to possess the Magic to really pull off the secret sound.
The new song is called Shell Shocked by Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa and Ty Dolla Sign.

Sleepy Hollow Comic To Be Published In October!

30 Jun


Fans of Sleepy Hollow, rejoice!  A new comic is coming your way, courtesy of Marguerite Bennett and Jorge Coelho (his cover above). And take heed, she’s a fan:

Did you look to other TV tie-in comics for ideas of what to do with “Sleepy Hollow?”

I’m afraid I did not! Most of the pitches I submitted, and indeed the ones that were chosen, all stemmed from fangirl love. Some aspects of each script arose while I was watching the show, wondering if these threads were things the writers had set down, while others were things I was dying to see explored, though I doubted the thrilling pace of the show might ever have the chance to pause over them. My research began as rewatching the show and taking notes as diligently and ferociously as though I were back in grad school, and ended deep in history books about the Revolutionary War.

It sounds like you’ve got a pretty good number of ideas for future “Sleepy Hollow” stories bubbling about.

Ha! I’d write Ichabod and Abbie through seven years of Witnessing, if they’d let me, and I’d be grateful every minute of it. It’s a brilliant, quirky, scary, fun show, and we’re fighting to live up to it every minute, in every way. I hope y’all love it as much as we do.

Paypal’s Equivalent of a VOID Slot Machine Win Hits A Delco Man

21 Jul

It’s happened before, it’ll happen again; someone checked their online bank account and it stated they had more money than previously thought. Big whoop, right? However, this time’s slightly different:

Delaware County resident Chris Reynolds received just such a shocking delivery from PayPal on Friday, when he opened his monthly statement from the online money-transfer company via email and saw that his ending balance was $92,233,720,368,547,800.

“I’m just feeling like a million bucks,” Reynolds told the Daily News yesterday. “At first I thought that I owed quadrillions. It was quite a big surprise.”

Exciting news! This man now has more than all the money ever created ever in the history of ever! And he’s in our state! Think of the tax revenue:

After absorbing the initial shock, Reynolds logged on to PayPal’s site and saw that his balance was listed there as zero.

Sad trombone.

Shit. Oh well, fun while it lasted. Also, this could be the first time ‘sad trombone’ has been written in the copy of a newspaper article.

In any event, what would’ve this fine upstanding young man have done with the money? Why, buy the Phillies! (and something about pay off debts):

“I’m a very responsible guy,” he said. “I would pay the national debt down first. Then I would buy the Phillies, if I could get a great price.”

Riff Raff And Lil’ Debbie Must Stop Rapping

16 Nov

Weird, non-flowy staccato rapping styles unite, Lil Debbie and Riff Raff put out their new video, and its splendid in ability to bring together two of the best human impersonators in the biz:

Lil Debbie’s patented arm dancing combined with Riff Raff’s urban Kid Rock motif produce quite a visual. Non-rich rappers rapping about how high up they are in the food chain while also completely dressing in $5 shirts and showing $25 tattoos create a . There’s something a little endearing about Kreayshawn because she appears to a modicum of talent with her raps. I’m still waiting for something to emerge from Lil Debbie’s pen that is anything more than utter shit.
