If you’re a Mystery Science Theater 3K fan like me, Santa Claus Conquers the Martians is special to you not just for Pia Zadora’s breakout performance, or the hilarious riffs (“I wish we had real parents instead of this radio”), but for Crow T. Robot’s brand-new Christmas carol based on Patrick Swayze’s classic so-bad-it’s-awesome movie Roadhouse.
Named simply “Let’s Have a Patrick Swayze Christmas,” Crow’s creation broke new ground in modern-day holiday tunes by juxtaposing the joy of—oh, never mind. Here’s a professional choir singing it. Roll tape, Cambot!
PS: Here’s the original version:

Oh Bill Plympton, you so wacky!
And that’s partly why I’m a fan of your work :)
So much time, money and creative effort is spent to bring comic-book superheroes to moving-picture life that it’s almost backward to contemplate how those adapted environments could be translated back into comics form.
I would pay to read Batman ‘89 and more from this list right now!
The comic book based off of the early 90’s Superboy TV show is all kinds of awesome! I can’t recommend the show (never seen it) but I do recommend the comic! 1 reason it’s awesome (as mentioned in the article): Curt Swan art! It’s awesome to see classic Silver Age style art in a “modern” comic. I’ve only picked up a handful of issues but those I have makes me want to pick up more when I find them :)
Lorde VS. M.I.A. - Royal Planes. Sick mash-up and Maya retweeted our link last night. MP3 + our review here.
My favorite thing about songs getting really popular is all the AWESOME mashups I find on tumblr in the weeks following.
You know what would be amazing? If this fantastic woman became the next companion. Just an ordinary plain girl with asthma an 4s scarf. Just imagine her and Capaldi flying around time and space. No romance. No stupid banter. Just good. old fashioned. Fun.
If feel like she’d lose her inhaler a lot and then Capaldi would get into a lot of trouble trying to find it and eventually he’s just keep like ten inhalers in the TARDIS
