We’ve featured some pretty amazing cosplay here — like zombie Iron Man and a Daedric knight — but this one has a special place in my heart because it’s from one of my favorite movies, Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. I think Deviant Artist Maho-Urei has done an amazing job in recreating Jack Skellington, but I’ll let you take a look and decide for yourself. READ MORE
I’m going to admit this right away: I pretty much hate musicals. I don’t know what it is but I just can’t get into them and it confuses me because many of the bands I listen to are basically musical theater with some distortion thrown in. Musicals such as The Phantom Of The Opera and The Wizard Of Oz just irritated me and the only ones I can think of that I really enjoyed were Little Shop Of Horrors, Evil Dead: The Musical, and Cannibal: The Musical (note: I don’t count Nightmare Before Christmas as a musical but know that I do love it).
However, something that I’ve always loved was South Park and the films of Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Each of their films is nothing short of hilarious and they are often incredibly witty and clever in their own way. It’s because of this love that I was so excited to hear about their Broadway show The Book Of Mormon. The guys have already tackled the Mormon faith before in the fantastic South Park episode “All About Mormons” and their outrageous yet raucously funny NC-17 film Orgazmo. So them doing a Broadway show with Mormonism as a central theme made perfect sense to me.
Getting to the point, I was invited to watch a performance of The Book Of Mormon on its national tour stop in Detroit, MI at the Fisher Theater. Below are my thoughts on the performance and the story as a whole. READ MORE
Attention Nightmare Before Christmas fans! If you’ve ever wanted some swag from the infamous Tim Burton musical but were too late to the party before some were discontinued, your chance has arrived! Nightmare Before Christmas collector Jon Zazula will be unloading his entire collection through Hake’s American & Collectibles over the next several months. The first lot will be approximately 35 pieces and a catalog that describes each piece will be made available in mid-February. The auction will begin in the beginning of March. Then, depending on how well the auctions go, a new batch will go up in July that might feature up to 200 pieces!
The collection includes, movie lenticulars, American and European posters, watches, promotional materials, lip gloss, perfume, figurines, tuxedo shirt buttons, and much, much more.
Zazula states that the collection includes, “Pretty much one of everything released from 1993 to 2004.” Zazula also adds that the “…staring bids are lower than value so that everyone can participate and maybe even get lucky!”
Head on below for some images of the collection. READ MORE
I’d like you to meet MrSolidSnake745, a YouTube user who makes music. With floppy drives. It’s incredible.
While most of his work are interpretations of videogame themes, he did create one for the Ghostbusters theme, and another for “This is Halloween” (inside) off the Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack. Enjoy the cheese!
