Peter Quill’s rocking Awesome Mix Vol. 1 will be released on cassette tape. I can’t think of any format that is more perfect for the soundtrack of Guardians of the Galaxy. The limited edition cassette will hit select stores on November 28th and is exclusive to independent retailers associated with Record Store Day. You can search for participating stores on their site.

Now all you need to do is check your attic for that old Walkman because authentic Star-Lord versions are pretty pricey right now on eBay.

I can’t even explain the amount of need coursing through my veins when I look at this Guardians Of The Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 – Deluxe Vinyl LP by Mondo.

First of all, this album on vinyl is a natural fit. Add the incredible screen printed art by Tyler Stout, the fact that they’re going to press it on 180 gram purple Infinity Stone colored vinyl, and the insertion of one of 9 different screen printed collectible handbills and I’m thinking people are going to be dying to indulge their inner Lloyd Dobler for this baby.

You can pre-order now, but keep in mind that they won’t start shipping until the first quarter of 2015.

Teenage-Mutant-Ninja-Turtles-Poster-header-2

You knew it was coming. Ever since we heard the theme song from the original cartoon series, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have often been associated with hilarious silly to awkwardly bad music. Many of us even learned the dance that went along with Vanilla Ice’s “Ninja Rap.” (or was that just me?) While I personally enjoy the theme from the reboot cartoon airing on Nickelodeon, I can’t say much for “Shell Shocked,” from the soundtrack of the new live-action movie. The song that seems to take itself too seriously is by Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa and Ty Dollar $ign, and features Kill the Noise and Madsonik.

Check out the song after the break, along with a new TV spot and a larger image of the new poster.

tardis jukebox

About ten months ago, David Prouty’s daughter challenged him to make something, out of recycled boxes, for the Doctor Who 50th anniversary.

His creation? This TARDIS jukebox with flashing lights and smoke effects. It was made out of old Uhaul, FedEx, and pizza boxes.

Yep. This dad made a 1/3 scale TARDIS with disco lights, sound activated LED’s, a smoke machine and an internal Bluetooth speaker. It’s all powered by a wireless remote and he can even connect his iPod or iPhone and turn it into a jukebox.

I’m going to add that David Prouty is a geophysicist, which makes me feel just a bit better about the fact that I can’t create one of these by myself.

Still, recycled pizza boxes? I can’t even make a pizza box out of one of those!

bats

Sándor Seuntjens posted this video of a version of the Batman theme song sung by actual bats.

How is that possible? Well, according to Seuntjens’ You Tube listing:

Bats produce sounds that are not audible to human ears. First these ultrasounds were digitally reduced to frequencies that are audible. Then the different batsounds were assigned different keys on a keyboard. On this keyboard – the only real Bat-Organ – Ulrich Seidel played the Batman Theme (Neal Hefti, 1966). The video clip was compiled by Sándor Seuntjens using footage from Batman (film, 1966), Batman (animated television series, 1992-95), and National Geographic (natgeowild.com).

So cool. I love nerds. Only we would do something like this.

We’ve seen 331Erock’s work many times before including a metal version of the theme for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, but now he’s turned his attention to television. This time it’s the BBC series Sherlock and I’m sure everyone’s favorite slightly crazy super sleuth would agree that it’s fantastic.
