MEAT BEAT MANIFESTO
Announces A Handful of Live Shows
In Support of Latest EP IMPOSSIBLE STAR

San Francisco, CA – Seminal electronic band MEAT BEAT MANIFESTO (MBM) is returning to the stage in support of their latest release of IMPOSSIBLE STAR which was released earlier this year in January via Flexidisc distributed by Virtual Label.

Meat Beat Manifesto will be playing San Francisco's Mezzanine (presented by Bodyshock and 120 Minutes) on June 8 with MC 900 Ft. Jesus, as well as September dates in New York City, Miami, Denver and Chicago.

Tour dates are:
  • June 8 Mezzanine – San Francisco, CA
    (w/ special guest MC 900 Ft. Jesus)
  • Sept 14 Cold Waves VII – Irving Plaza – NYC, NY
  • Sept 15 The Ground – Miami, FL
  • Sept 21 The Oriental Theater – Denver, CO
  • Sept 22 Cold Waves VII – Metro – Chicago, IL
Those familiar with MBM's mind-blowing live performances are fully aware that the visual component combines a sonic electronic assault with their stunning and often political video mash-ups. The visual “battles” waged between mastermind Jack Dangers and MBM partner-in-crime Ben Stokes will undoubtedly be uproariously provocative and incredibly timely with video samples culled from news reports and found footage.

Often using politics and cultural events as a starting point, MBM mastermind Jack Dangers connects the current climate to the creative direction of Impossible Star. "I suppose it would be similar to an MC Escher optical illusion which spirals around and around and never seems to end, which can be used as a metaphor of many current events and other pertinent things right now," he says.

Minimal, textural and cinematic in scope, Impossible Star follows the music innovator deeper into more experimental territory. From the thick and discordant soundscape of “One” to the cut-and-paste pastiche of “Bass Playa” to the downtempo of “T.M.I.”, Impossible Star is a layered exploration of sounds and rhythms.

"MBM has always gone in many different directions," Jack explains. "'We Are Surrounded' and 'T.M.I.' represent the paranoid xenophobic 'so-called' fake news cycle we are living in. But seriously at this point, I really wouldn't know what to say. We've entered a world of surrealism which is uncharted territory for me… or maybe it's territory we've been through before in the '30s?  What do I know… Further explorations are in the pipeline!

MBM's consistent musical invention has led to all forms of electronic musical experimentation over its 30 year history, from jungle to techno to industrial to dubstep to jazz fusion. Its long string of influential futuristic classics includes such groundbreaking tracks as "God O.D.", "Strap Down", "Psyche Out", "Helter Skelter", "Radio Babylon", "Edge of No Control" to "It's The Music". The single, "Prime Audio Soup"(from the album Actual Sounds and Voices) was featured in the sci-fi fantasy blockbuster The Matrix and on its platinum-selling soundtrack.

An acknowledged and celebrated innovator in the electronic music scene (his remix of Tower of Power's "What Is Funk?" was nominated for a Grammy in 2006), Jack Dangers continues to stretch sonic boundaries and influence new generations of sound activists. As a premiere remixer, producer and sound designer, he has played a seminal role in defining tomorrows' music today. Past production/remixing projects include: Public Enemy, David Bowie, Orbital, Nine Inch Nails, David Byrne, Bush, Depeche Mode, and Tower of Power.

New York, NY—May 22, 2018—The Hunt for Wolverine is over – but the mystery of Logan’s return continues with new questions and new secrets! And the answers that Tony Stark, Kitty Pryde, Sabretooth and Daredevil have found in their search for the adamantium mutant may not be the ones they were expecting.

This August, Charles Soule (Hunt For Wolverine, Death of Wolverine) and Ramon Rosanas (Phoenix Resurrection: The Return of Jean Grey) bring you a story that ties each unique HUNT FOR WOLVERINE adventure together – in a one-shot you won’t want to miss!

“The four Hunt For Wolverine miniseries all follow different threads in pursuit of our pointy-fisted friend, and each comes to a conclusion with different pieces of the puzzle,” teases editor Jordan D. White. “With DEAD ENDS, the players assemble to bring those puzzle together and see what they learned… but they might not like what they find.”

What has Wolverine been doing? And where has he been? The questions continue in HUNT FOR WOLVERINE: DEAD ENDS, available in comic shops this August!

Al Jourgensen Talks About the Song "Antifa"

Ministry

"I do believe that people should stand up for themselves and not be party to this bullshit we've being fed...I think Antifa is a state of mind, it's like, 'we're not going to take this shit anymore, because we've been sold a bad bill of goods here by you people'...I relish the attitude of Antifa...I think that some of the tactics they take actually hurt the cause or the thought process more than it helps, but I do enjoy the "
enough!" aspect of it, and that's what this song is about."

FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM SYNOPSIS
There are growing dangers in the wizarding world of 1926 New York. Something mysterious is leaving a path of destruction in the streets, threatening to expose the wizarding community to the No-Majs (American for Muggles), including the Second Salemers, a fanatical faction bent on eradicating them.  And the powerful, dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald, after wreaking havoc in Europe, has slipped away…and is now nowhere to be found. 

Unaware of the rising tensions, Newt Scamander arrives in the city nearing the end of a global excursion to research and rescue magical creatures, some of which are safeguarded in the magical hidden dimensions of his deceptively nondescript leather case.  But potential disaster strikes when unsuspecting No-Maj Jacob Kowalski inadvertently lets some of Newt’s beasts loose in a city already on edge—a serious breach of the Statute of Secrecy that former Auror Tina Goldstein jumps on, seeing her chance to regain her post as an investigator.  However, things take an ominous turn when Percival Graves, the enigmatic Director of Magical Security at MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), casts his suspicions on both Newt and Tina.

Now allied, Newt and Tina, together with Tina’s sister, Queenie, and their new No-Maj friend, Jacob, form a band of unlikely heroes, who must recover Newt’s missing beasts before they come to harm.  But the stakes are higher than these four outsiders—now branded fugitives—ever imagined, as their mission puts them on a collision course with dark forces that could push the wizarding and No-Maj worlds to the brink of war.

Toy Review: Iron Man 2 Mark IV 1/6 Figure by Hot Toys!

Click the Above Title to read the Full Story.... 


Hey Nation! Its Matt MacNabb (My Parents Are Geeks) back with another toy review for you. We aren't messing around this time, no shabby retail plastic here. No, we're going to take a look at a high-end collectible...the Sideshow exclusive Iron Man 2 Mark IV 1/6 Figure by Hot Toys. You know the name Hot Toys, its synymous with quality and no one brings you more high-end collectible product than Sideshow, so this is an exciting partnership. 

The detail on this is nothing short of astounding. This is definitely one for the display case or at least a very high shelf. There are so many working and moving parts to the suit that make it screen accurate, but with that comes the possibility for then to be pulled off or lost, so keep the kids away (if you have 'em!). The price tag on these is higher than many are used to spending at over $200, but once you see this guy in person you see where every dime of that money went. Quality over quantity.

Image Gallery:



The Stats:

The Iron Man Mark IV Sixth Scale Figure features: 
  • An authentic and detailed likeness of the Mark IV in Iron Man 2
  • Approximately 30 cm tall
  • Over 30 points of articulation
  • LED-lighted eyes and circular-shaped Arc Reactor on chest (white light, battery operated)
  • Metallic red and gold painting on armor
  • Detachable chest armor
  • Three (3) pairs of interchangeable hands including:
    - One (1) pair of fists
    - One (1) pair of hands with articulated fingers and light-up repulsor (white light, battery operated)
    - One (1) pair of repulsor-firing hands (white light, battery operated)
  • Fully deployable air flaps at the back of the armor
  • Articulations on waist armor allowing flexible movements
Accessory:
  • Figure stand with character nameplate and the movie logo

There aren't many of this bad boy left in stock over at Sideshow, so go and pick yours up now!

xXx: 15th Anniversary Edition Blu-Ray Review

About the Film: From Revolution Studios and and Sony Pictures, Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) is a notorious underground thrill-seeker who, until now, has been deemed untouchable by the law. But when crack NSA Agent Gibbsons convinces Cage to infiltrate a ruthless Russian crime ring, this new breed of secret agent (codename: XXX) takes down the enemies of justice with a vengeance in this high-octane, turbo-charged thrill-ride from the acclaimed director of The Fast and the Furious. Synopsis for 15th Anniversary Edition Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) is a notorious underground thrill-seeker who, until now, has been deemed untouchable by the law. But when crack NSA Agent Gibbons convinces Cage to infiltrate a ruthless Russian crime ring, this new breed of secret agent (codename: xXx) takes down the enemies of justice with a vengeance in this high-octane, turbo-charged thrill-ride from the acclaimed director of The Fast and the Furious.

Our Take: I'm a junkie for action films, through and through. I grew up in the glory days of action...the 1980s. My love for the genre is what made me an instant fan of xXx when it was released back in 2002. Its an action film and a spy film all rolled into one and the extreme sports angle, which was hip at the time, gives it a unique charm. Vin Diesel does a great job as a lead, but my favorite part of this film is Asia Argento. Her performance is fantastic. The film holds up well on blu-ray. I only had this one on DVD, so I'm happy for the upgrade and the extras. I recommend this one, its a great watch and a fun way to prep before you see the new xXx: Return of Xander Cage film in theaters!

SMITHSONIAN CHANNEL™ SERIES BRINGS MILITARY HISTORY TO LIFE IN "THE WEAPON HUNTER"

SMITHSONIAN CHANNEL™ SERIES BRINGS MILITARY HISTORY TO LIFE
THE WEAPON HUNTER

SEASON TWO PREMIERES SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 12 AT 9 PM ET/PT

Host Paul Shull Returns As New Season Puts the Spotlight on Our Veterans

New York, January 12, 2017 –Season two of the Smithsonian Channel original series THE WEAPON HUNTER shines a light on true American heroes as series host, history buff and restoration expert Paul Shull partners with veterans to spotlight iconic moments and artefacts in military history. This is history that leaves a mark. From a Vietnam era gun truck and a World War II B-25 bomber, to a giant 20mm Oerlikon anti-aircraft cannon and more, THE WEAPON HUNTER is history up-close and personal. Season two of the six-episode series premieres Sunday, February 12 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Paul Shull returns on his quest to get his hands on some of the world’s rarest and most remarkable pieces of military history. To do so, Paul calls on his network of military artifact collectors who have amassed collections that rival those found in the world’s great military history museums. This season, Paul also calls upon combat veterans – including a 96-year-old eyewitness to the Pearl Harbor attack , veterans from Vietnam, and Marines recently returned from Afghanistan and Iraq.

The series premiere, VIETNAM ROAD WARRIOR, takes Paul to rural Tennessee, where he meets Sammy Seay, a Vietnam veteran who is rebuilding a rare vehicle from the Vietnam War known as a Gun Truck. Built to protect supply convoys for American troops during the war, these armor-plated behemoths represent an untold chapter in the conflict’s history. Paul’s ultimate goal is to experience a simulated convoy attack while riding aboard the rebuilt truck with Gun Truck veterans.

Other episodes of THE WEAPON HUNTER:

THE WEAPON HUNTER: BIG BAD B-25
Premieres Sunday, February 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT
Paul is looking for the final missing piece of a World War II B-25 bomber, which is being restored by the United States Commemorative Air Force. The piece in question is the heart of this flying weapons system - the Norden bombsight. Paul’s search takes him into the arid Californian desert. Then he heads on to a unique flight school where he learns to fly a B-25 and to use the World War II targeting scope to drop a bomb.

THE WEAPON HUNTER: PEARL HARBOR PAYBACK
Premieres Monday, February 26 at 8 p.m. ET/PT
Paul attempts to rebuild a weapon that helped America move on from the devastation of Pearl Harbor, the 20mm Oerlikon anti-aircraft cannon. While hunting down parts for this kamikaze-killer, Paul meets a Navy veteran who describes the carnage of Pearl Harbor. He also experiences the deadly capabilities of a vintage Japanese Zero fighter plane, all in a bid to understand how and why the Oerlikon cannon helped turn the tide in the Pacific theatre.

THE WEAPON HUNTER: WORLD’S FASTEST WEAPON
Premieres Sunday, March 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT
Paul sets out to fix and fire the fastest gun ever built: the Minigun - a rotating six-barrel monster that can fire up to 6,000 rounds per minute. Teaming up with Vietnam helicopter pilot Fred Behrens, Paul must track down the parts they need to get Fred’s vintage weapon firing again. Along the way, Paul investigates the evolution of machine gun speed, from hand-cranked Gatling guns, through the Nazi’s MG42, to the present day. 

THE WEAPON HUNTER: D-DAY DETONATOR
Premieres Sunday, March 12 at 9 p.m. ET/PT
Paul intends to reconstruct the entire experience of D-Day from the point of view of a GI on the front lines.  His focus is four key elements: the airborne attack; the Naval bombardment; the tank assault; and the massive infantry invasion. He finds and fires the classic weapons of the Normandy Invasion, and he speaks to WWII veterans who provide personal insight into these events. And with the help from a world-renowned explosives expert, Paul builds his very own Bangalore torpedo, a device critical to the bloodiest battle of the invasion, the landing at Omaha beach.

THE WEAPON HUNTER: IWO JIMA FRANKEN-GUN
Premieres Sunday, March 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT
In the season finale, Paul rebuilds a one-of-a-kind World War II machine gun, the Stinger. Built by Marines during the invasion of Okinawa, the unique firearm was made from the internal mechanisms of three different weapons. Now Paul must track down parts from each one in order to bring it to life. During his quest, he discovers why and how this franken-gun came into being, and he learns the heroic story of Tony Stein, the American Marine who won the Medal of Honor with The Stinger slung at his side.

THE WEAPON HUNTER is produced by Cream Productions for Smithsonian Channel. David Brady is the Executive Producer for Cream Productions. Tim Evans, David Royle and Charles Poe serve as Executive Producers for Smithsonian Channel.
