Sometimes living in Wisconsin can feel life a little bit of a void. As a kid I didn’t have many friends into comics or Star Wars or wrestling. Getting to talk about pop culture things was rare. But now Taco Bell has just turned us into a cultural Mecca!! Kit Kat Quesadilla’s! Screw health. Screw my heart and screw diabetes! It is now my mission to track down this culinary masterpiece being tested in Wisconsin ! Viva WI
Since it’s debut The Walking Dead has been pretty consistently ( I’m looking at you terrible season two) one of my favorite shows. It pulled me back into graphic novels and just recharged my love of the zombie pop culture takeover. One downside to it being a tv show is you don’t get the iconic advertising of a big screen blockbuster. Thankfully series producer Greg Nicotero has a fond place in his heart for classic film fandom and posters. He commissioned a few great folks to add The Walking Dead to some classic posters. Some of the results are below and great. You can see more here.
There are things out there that are just never as good as you remember them. Pop Rocks, Gushers and pretty much any cartoon you loved before the age of five. I grew up with what is now considered the “classic” spiderman animated series. The sound of the theme is burnt into my brain, and I really thought the lyrics were as well. I mean i can remember Catches thieves just like flies in my sleep. I hum the song when I am concentrating or sometimes just out of boredom. It’s just so great! Well at least I thought it was. Then the dramatic reading appeared. At first I just assumed my instant dislike was because a classic song from my childhood was being put through the William Shatner ringer. But no there lyrics and the song are just truly terrible. Nostalgia is a hell of drug and I encourage everyone to just stay away.
