This Sunday at the Super Bowl pre-show, there is a good chance Sammy Hagar is going to announce that he and Van Halen have reunited and will tour this summer.
Rumor has it that the band has been locked away in a studio in California working on new tracks for either Best Of.. Vol. 2 or for a new record.

Speaking of reunited bands, there is a 90% chance that JUDAS PRIEST will be on this year's Ozzfest bill.
Which unfortunately means, I may have to go to Ozzfest.

March 23 will finally see the release of the first Weezer DVD and the expanded reissue of "The Blue Album."
For more info check here and here.

There will be new Aqua Teen Hunger Force DVDs this summer!
There will also be other Adult Swim DVDs released at the same time, including Sealab 2021.
For those of you that are interested in knowing more about me, Sealab 2021 features one of my favorite theme songs ever.
Speaking of Adult Swim characters we all know and love, check out this Space Ghost news.

TRAVIS will appear on The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn Friday night.
Someone please tape this for me!

The critics of Rolling Stone offer up their individual Top 10 Albums of 2003. I enjoyed reading it.

The Darkness are coming to America!
I'm already making plans to go to either the Chicago show or the Atlanta one.. who's with me?

The full story on Ryan Adams' big accident in Liverpool.

Mike Patton (Faith No More/Fantomas) is working on his first solo album for a 2005 release, but here's the twist.. it's an album of pop songs.

Supergrass are planning on releasing a "Best of.." compilation with two new songs and a DVD at some point this year.

Check out the trailer for Zatoichi.
It's not that bad if you ignore the voice-over guy.
This character is one of Japan's great franchises (there's been a Zatoichi film in movie theaters or a series on television pretty much without any kind of gaps from 1962), and it stars "Beat" Takeshi Kitano.. what else do you need?

This really cracked me up.
I'm not trying to make fun though, I like people who can get excited about things.

Things continue to get worse on the Superman movie front.

In some positive movie news, Naomi Watts has finally signed to star in Peter Jackson's new King Kong epic.
I'm already prepared to say that I think this movie will be a masterpiece on par with the original.
It starts shooting in August and will be in theaters around Christmas 2005.

Also, the new Christopher Nolan/Christian Bale Batman flick has a title, BATMAN : INTIMIDATION.

You are Mario! You're pretty good-all-around.
You're the hero most of the time, and you don't
get too hung up in it...just try and let others
get a little spot-light too, okay?

For those of you who haven't heard yet, Lord of the Rings : Return of the King received 11 Oscar nominations.
You can check out's analysis of the nominees and front-runners here if you're so inclined.
I'm not looking forward to the riots that will surely follow if Return of the King doesn't win at least Best Picture.

Today sees the release of G.I. Joe Season 1 on DVD.
A flash animation dealie has been created to mark the occasion.

Also, feel free to check out the box art for MST3K DVD Collection Volume 5.

For those of you who are fans of Nuno Bettencourt (and I'm well aware I may be the only one here), his new band Population 1 has just opened their new site.
There's not much there yet, but here's to hoping for more.
And while I'm on the subject of Nuno....

In sad news, Captain Kangaroo recently passed away at the age of 76 after a long period of illness.

This is another one of my older cartoons, but I'm told it's a favorite of several..

I apologize for my abscence while my band was busy recording our first EP.
I'll probably be elaborating on the events that occurred and the experience itself a little later.

For those of you that haven't heard yet, here's a good bit of information on the new Nintendo DS... (Dual Screen).
Also, Justin at GameGirlAdvance has a pretty good take on the whole thing.
