Due to the recent goings on in the Boston area, the Boston Comic Con, which was to take place over the weekend, has officially been postponed. The entire city is pretty much under lock down at this point, and the organizers of the con feel that it is necessary to hold off on the event in order to ensure the safety of everyone. They assure that the con will be rescheduled for a date in the not too distant future.
If you are in Boston, stay safe. READ MORE

Thrash metal legends Anthrax will be releasing an 8-track EP entitled Anthems on March 19th in N. America. The EP features six covers from band such as Rush, Cheap Trick, Boston, and more, and two Anthrax tracks. For their cover of Boston’s “Smokin’,” the band brought in keyboardist Fred Mandel, who has recorded with Alice Cooper, Pink Floyd, Queen, Elton John, and many more.
Drummer Charlie Benante comments on the Boston cover, saying, “If ever there were a perfect first album, it’s Boston’s first album. The harmony leads they did would later be heard by Iron Maiden, which of course would lead to thrash metal.”
Vocalist Joey Belladonna, “These are all bands I grew up with and have listened to forever. It’s just great music. I had fun singing these songs and I was happy recording together with Anthrax, doing classic rock songs. Fun stuff!” READ MORE
I love Seven Psychopaths. It’s not horror, it’s a crime comedy. But it is supremely gory. If you remember director Martin McDonagh’s In Bruges you know he doesn’t f*ck around. And, to put it crassly, this movie has a sh*tload more kills than that one (it’s also smart, funny and thoughtful). Thus, I feel like I can wholeheartedly recommend it to you. While it might not be scary, it’s certainly got more of the red stuff than most of the R-rated horror movies that have come out this year. I’ll fill you guys in with my review later this month.
The film, “Follows a struggling screenwriter (Colin Farrell) who inadvertently becomes entangled in the Los Angeles criminal underworld after his oddball friends (Christopher Walken and Sam Rockwell) kidnap a gangster’s (Woody Harrelson) beloved Shih Tzu.” The movie also stars Abbie Cornish, Tom Waits and Olga Kurylenko.

The Boston Herald has run a report that local police are cracking down on venues that allow any sort of “dangerous behavior” on the dance floor, a.k.a. moshing. The local House Of Blues was cited when a mosh pit broke out during a Flogging Molly show. Sixty people engaged in an “aggravated mosh pit dance” and since no security intervened, the venue was cited. Oh, and it should be noted that not a single injury was reported. The House Of Blues is working with the city to address these concerns.
Really Boston? This is what you focus your time, money and efforts on? Guess what fellas, these people know what they are doing! Believe it or not, moshing has been going on for decades and is pretty much all figured out. You push, you shove, you run, you jump, and if someone falls down, you help them up, brush them off, make sure they’re alright, and then keep going. Citing venues for people moshing makes about as much sense as citing movie theaters for people crying during sentimental movies.
Hey, I’ve got a great idea! Let’s cite restaurants for giving people gas! After all, farts can be deadly AND they harm our environment! Freaking ridiculous….
