  3. EarthBound Composer Keiichi Suzuki Scores US Film, Crowdfunds Vinyl Release

    for the plasma

    EarthBound is the biggest cult hit in video game history for a great many reasons and we’ve extolled those reasons myriad times in the past here on The Nerdy Show Network. Without question, one of the most celebrated aspects of the game’s awesomeness is its score, created by Keiichi Suzuki and Hirokazu “Hip” Tanaka. The score’s avant-garde genre fusion has topped game music lists, and influenced a whole generation of musicians following its release. (In fact, this past month I hosted a panel of musicians Camp Fangamer celebrating the music of EarthBound – you can hear it as a perk on our Patreon). Suzuki’s influence doesn’t just reach to a revered game series, he founded the new wave bands Hachimitsupai and the Moonriders and composed for revered Japanese films like Tokyo Godfathers and the 2003 revival of Zatoichi. Now he’s scoring his first US film and is crowdfunding a vinyl release. (more…)

  7. Creators Unite at the Nickelodeon Happy Happy! Joy Joy! SDCC Panel

    25_years_nickelodeonIt’s rare to find a kid who grew up in the 90s and wasn’t profoundly influenced by Nickelodeon programming. Such was the theme of the San Diego Comic Con panel “Happy Happy! Joy Joy!: 25 Years of Nickelodeon Original Animation.”

    Panelists included original animation creators Craig Bartlett (Hey Arnold!), Butch Hartman (The Fairly OddParents, Bunsen is a Beast!), Jhonen Vasquez (Invader Zim) and Arlene Klasky (Rugrats). This panel was a part of the company’s promotion of The Splat, a block of programming dedicated to Nickelodeon’s iconic series from the 90s and early 00s, but also had some inside looks at the upcoming Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie, Hartman’s new show Bunsen is a Beast!, and the debut of Vasquez’s own original TMNT short.

    After 10 years off the air, visionary animator Genndy Tartakovsky is concluding his sci-fi martial arts opus. In 2016 we’ll see Samurai Jack on Adult Swim in 10 episodes making up one epic five hour movie.

    Now that the series is a part of Cartoon Network’s late night, mature audience programming, and after a 50-year time jump for the character, we’re going to see some changes and Jack will notice them too. We spoke with Genndy Tartakovsky at San Diego Comic Con, and he elaborated on the grittier season and how it will effect the character. (more…)

  10. All Aboard the Hype Train! SDCC Reveals First American Gods Trailer

    First the bummer: we weren’t able to make good on our quest to attend San Diego Comic Con’s American Gods panel. (Luck pushed too far, and one sweltering wait in an endless line later, we still didn’t get in.)
