From the Stereo to Your Screen: “You Could Be Mine” by Guns ‘n’ Roses from Terminator 2: Judgment Day

“You Could Be Mine” by Guns ‘n’ Roses from Terminator 2: Judgment Day My first movie score purchase was of Brad Fiedel’s Terminator 2, on cassette. I figured that, since I couldn’t actually get my hands on the Guns ‘n’ Roses song which featured so prominently in the film, I might as well get some of the other music that’s in the movie. Now, while the various chase themes from James Cameron’s 1991 film are pretty damned exciting and energetic, riding around on your bike blasting “Escape from the Hospital (And T-1000)” isn’t exactly as cool as bumping G ‘n’

From the Stereo to Your Screen: MC HAMMER AND THE ADDAMS FAMILY

Addams Groove by MC Hammer from The Addams Family The brightest stars burn briefest, as the saying goes. MC Hammer’s Please Hammer, Don’t Hurt ‘Em and Too Legit to Quit were released back-to-back in 1990 and 1991, and by the time The Funky Headhunter dropped three years later, hip-hop had moved from the pop-friendly jams of Hammer, Young MC, and Vanilla Ice to the likes of Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and Tupac. In the brief period where MC Hammer sold millions of records, he was tapped to record an original song to promote The Addams Family. His song for that

KEVIN HARE TALKS MOVIES HE HASN’T SEEN- TEEN MOVIES!!

Yo, what’s up? So I meant to have one of these things done in October, but I spent my time not watching a single horror movie or doing anything fall related, so I didn’t get around to not seeing any other movies, either. Anyway, fall is a great time to reflect on some good ol’ nostalgia for the teenage parties you never went to and the fun you never had. Here’s five teen movies that I’ve never seen but feel like I know well enough to review anyway. Fast Times at Ridgemont High: This is a documentary about the Fast

From the Stereo to Your Screen: SOUL ASYLUM’s Can’t Even Tell from Clerks

SOUL ASYLUM’s Can’t Even Tell from Clerks   “You know what the problem with music videos is? They never address the problems of the common man.” I love the irony inherent in Jeff Anderson as Randall talking about the common man and meta-commentary on music videos while actually starring in a music video himself. It’s an idea furthered by the fact that while Dave Pirner and the rest of Soul Asylum are in the video, they don’t actually do any musical performing. The Minnesotans play hockey on the roof of the Quik Stop and RST Video, recreating a scene from
