Culture Bomb: 2010.07.11

CULTURE BOMB is something I hope to be a regular feature here: the best of free, downloadable pop culture content for your brain’s enjoyment. If you have anything to share with the rest of the class, please EMAIL to gdwessel@gmail.com with the subject CULTURE BOMB.

* Please be aware: TODAY (Sunday 2010.07.11) is the LAST day to pre-order A Fistful Of Comics. After that, stay tuned for ordering info after the fact, or come to Wizard World Chicago in August. I can sign your copy then.

* The latest SUBNORMALITY strip, about the creative process, is eerily accurate.

* This isn’t free or downloadable but worth mentioning: PRISON FOR BITCHES, a Lady Gaga fanzine. Love that traditional photocopied zines are still produced in the internet age.

* Paul Cornell gave a dramatic reading of Action Comics #890 last week at Convergence 2010, and you can see/hear it for yourself now. Part 1, and Part 2

* Been waiting to see this one: Reign of Death, a short SF noir film, starring Noel Clarke (Mickey Smith from Doctor Who and Torchwood), is now online. Well worth the viewing.

* Internet rapper/DJ AKIRA THE DON has a new single: “Nah Nah Nah (feat. Chilly Gonzales + Mary Turner)”

* Good friend Rusty Redenbacher also not only as a new video for a new MUDKIDS single, “Think”, but he also just dropped a killer mix of old skool Detroit acid house.

* This is absolutely essential listening: a 2-part podcast about the new book Touch And Go: The Complete Hardcore Punk Zine 1979-1983. Featuring songs by Minor Threat, the Misfits, 999, Negative Approach, and more, it’s also a lot of Tesco Vee (The Meatmen) talking about the zine that would spawn one of my favorite record labels ever. This book will have every issue reprinted. Crucial stuff.
