Real Music by Fake Bands: I Am A Giant

SoundHELL
Jem Top Ten
I like fake cartoon bands. I admit, I can remember watching the grand daddy of fake cartoon bands The Archies belt out Sugar Sugar. Of course after Sugar Sugar became a number one hit staying on the top of the charts for 4 weeks everybody had to get into the act. Soon fake cartoon bands littered the saturday morning air waves. Josie and The Pussycats was my personal fav.

Which brings me to Jem. Although I liked the show it wasn't because of Jem. Nope, I was in The Misfit's camp. Why? Because Jem and The Holograms sang songs about things like reading is fun and old people don't suck. Pizzazz and the Misfits being cast as the bad guys didn't have to toe that party line. I guess their music is suppose to suggest that they're selfish mean girls. But the song I Am A Giant is an 80s synth-rock affirmation. A power ballad declaration of Grrl Power.

I I I I am
Gonna cut you down to size
I I I I am
Gonna make you realize
I I I I am
Like a comet on the rise
No one can top me
Nothing can stop me

I am twenty stories tall
I am a giant
Towering above it all
Strong and defiant
I am a giant

I I I I am
Not the kind who kids around
I I I I am
Gonna crush you to the ground
I I I I am
The music and the sound
Ain't here to play kid
Outta my way kid

I am twenty stories tall
I am a giant
Towering above it all
Strong and defiant
I am a giant

I I I I am
I am a giant
I I I I am
I am a giant
I I I I am
I am a giant

I am

I Am A Giant

I Am A Giant

I am.

VHS HELL: Deception of a Generation

VHS HELL
photo by makelessnoise

Over twenty years ago The Eagle's Nest released this tape warning us of,"another attack on our society." Our host Gary asks us, "If I say something like wicked witches and demon clouds and spell books and even the zone of eternal evil, what comes to mind?" Then Gary cuts to a clip from The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo. Oh yeah, Scrappy-Doo is a tool of Satan.

Gary is joined by his pal Phil who tell us that, "80% of all cartoons deal directly with the occult, and 40% of the toys on the market have occultic influences." And Phil has brought along all his action figures and playsets and even some frosted sugar bomb breakfast cereal. Which, as everyone knows, is the best way to watch cartoons. Here's Gary playing with the Masters of the Universe Snake Mountain playset:

Skel-La-Tor

Is it just me or does Gary remind you of a certain 70s porn star?

Gary and Phil show us toys and clips from Thundercats, Transformers, G.I.Joe, Voltron, She-Ra and The Care Bears and tell us that they are filled with occult references and images. Is there some sinister conspiracy at work here? Just the conspiracy of Joseph Campbell. Pretty much everything they call "occultic" is the same mythic archetype/monomyth stuff popularized by George Lucas and anybody else with a dogeared copy of Hero of a Thousand Faces. But don't tell that to Gary and Phil, then they'd have to find another excuse to play with their action figures. Follow your bliss, kids!

A-Kon Hells Post Mortem


I got home to find that my 3 legged cat had puked in my bed AND Japanator had posted a nice review of the Friday night A-Kon HELL with lots of video goodness, too.

As Japanator points out the Friday night show was in a panel room with the max capacity of 100 people. But Saturday night's show was moved to Video Room 2 where there was plenty of space for everyone. A-Kon may not know or care about AnimeHELL, but at least now they seem to understand that lots and LOTS of folks wanna go to it and see it. Here's to the hope that next year finds A-Kon HELL scheduled in a video room from the start.

Still, a good time was had by all. And much candy was given out and many prizes raffled off. A big thanks to the A-Kon staffers who put up with our wacky clip show crowd, we appreciate all your help in getting HELL into a bigger room. And a special thanks to the Anonymous Audience Guy who helped out with setting up the video projector and getting the sound back when we lost it on Friday night. You rock! And, of course, thanks go to Emily and Bob DeJesus for the Kawaii TV opening and Bruce, Avery and Katie, too.

I've got lots of A-Kon HELL video on my monkey cam and as soon as YouTube lets me upload it I'll post it for all to enjoy.

Bonus: morphyloon shares, "a panoramic view from my place in the AnimeHELL line."
