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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
* 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)”
* 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.
