Two and a Half Stargroves

While were on the subject of Charlie Sheen loosing his job, rumor has it John Stamos might be replacing Sheen on the hit show Two and a Half Men!

We all love John from his role as Uncle Jesse on the show Full House, but if you’re looking for a deeper cut to satiate your Stamos while waiting for him to take over for Sheen, take a look at this…

John Stamos is Lance Stargrove, Vanity is Danja Deering and Gene Simmons is Velvet Von Ragner the hellish hermaphrodite!

Go to DMC!!!

Viz Media’s Detroit Metal City is like nothing you’ve seen before.  I remember when the first volume came out.  I knew nothing of the book, but as a Heavy Metal fan myself, I was instantly attracted to it. Now Volume 8 is hitting the shelves this Tuesday, and I’m salivating for it because I’ve become a totally obsessed follower of the cult of Krauser!  I’ve throughly enjoyed every single volume, the cartoon series, and the live action DMC movie adaptation of this… manga.  There, I said it. I like manga, but you won’t see me cosplaying anytime soon. Hmmm… although a Krauser halloween costume could be pretty cool.

By all appearances, Soichi Negishi is a sweet, well-mannered boy who loves Swedish pop music, trendy boutiques, and all things fashionable. But at the same time he’s also Krauser II, front man for Detroit Metal City, an indie death metal band whose popularity increases by the day. Once the DMC makeup goes on and Soichi takes the stage, his natural talent as a death metal god can’t help but flourish. Is this the band he’s truly destined to be in?

How did this happen? When and where did I go wrong? This is not the kind of band I wanted to be in!

It’s like Metalocalypse meets Mrs. Doubtfire on acid.

The live action movie stars Kenichi Matsuyama, a pretty high-profile star in the manga adaptation genre, having starred in the Death Note series as L, and in the Nana movie.  It also features a guest appearance by one of my favorite people in the world… None other than the Devil Bat himself, Gene Simmons! You might know him from such films as Never Too Young To Die, Trick Or Treat, and a band you might of heard of called KISS! Unfortunately, the music in the live-action film does not evoke the true evil spirit of the manga, going for a nu-metal sound, unlike the anime, which used more traditional death-metal music.  I still wholeheartedly recommend the film, for the characters are spot-on and hilarious.
