Dr.Chris Record Spotlight The Batman Superman Animated Series

Posted in Comic Books, DC Comics, entertainment, music, superheroes, vinyl with tags , , , on March 25, 2016 by chrisdsav

With Batman vs Superman The Dawn of Justice in theaters now I thought it be a great time to look at two of the oddest records in joy collection.

We spot light two records today both from the DC Animated Universe other wise known as the Timm verse. Named after co crestor Bruce Timm. With music by Danny Elfman  and the late  Shirley Jones. Mondo Records released a Batman Vinyl record in the shape of the Bat symbol in honor of the characters  75th Anniversary. I didn’t get a chance to grab one before they sold out, but was able to get one of the comic con villain records. Clay face come son a tiny 33 with the record it self looking like the villain from the show. Each of the major Batman villains got one Mr.Freeze, Joker, Harley Quinn, Penguin and Riddler. Well at least 6 if his villains did. They contain the music from just the show it self opening and ending credits nothing else. The extended version of this theme can be found online it roughly 2 mins long. I was a bit disappointed in how few tracks were on this album.

A year later Mondo released the Superman Animated score on a record cut like the shield on his chest. Hey released a Superman snd Bizarro variet. I picked up the Bizarro version just because of how cool it looks with the back ward S. The thing with this one is you play the record from the inside out. Any record I have come across you play the record as normal from the out side in. This trick will only work on records with out auto play, it must be done manually.

The Superman vinyl contains the opening and end credits to Superman the Animated Series as well as the opening and end credits to the Adventures of Batman and Superman. This was the new title of both shows from 1997-1999.

The Mondo release of Superman can still be found on their site the Batman record you will have to hunt down on ebay to obtain.

Tonight on the show I have MA film critic Dede Crimmins on the show with us. She is a staff writer for Film Thrills.
She will be sitting in on a fan commentary with me and then doing her interview about all things horror related that she is into and likes and dislikes. Then I will play the soundtrack to Fright Night.

DEATH NOTE

Posted in Cartoons, death, entertainment, news, thriller with tags on February 26, 2016 by chrisdsav

Super DUPER deluxe bluray set looks amazing and worth the price if you never owed the series before.
I was going to buy the dvd set at Bestbuy until I saw that this was coming out.

image

Deathnote is based on the hugely popular Manga of the same name  from Japan. 
Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata’s suspenseful story follows Light a high school student who discovers a notebook with the ability to kill whomever he wishes. WRiting their name in it.
I jumped on this anime show a little later than most people had. I’m really picky about my Anime. A lot of the time the writing can be real dense and over wrought with drama and dialogue that is taking it self way too seriously.
Of course I watch a ton of Hentai and actually enjoy the narrative between sex secenes, so what does that say about me?

The list of bonus material included is worth the price point if 69.99

This limited edition 6-disc collector’s set includes the complete 37-episode series with five language options along with two feature films (available in three languages) and hours of additional extras! This definitive set also comes with a 64-page booklet, which features the original manga pilot story that inspired the series packaged inside an exclusive chipboard box. Three hours of additional extra content includes interviews with the Japanese creators, behind-the-scenes footage of the English and Japanese voice cast, production art, audio commentary and much more

I think the best part is you get two of the three live action movies. L Change The World  is not included.

If you have never seen this show before and always wanted to check it out this be a great set to pick up this Spring.

Dr.Chris Record Spotlight: Carmilla A Vampire Tale

Posted in entertainment, Horror Babes, music, Theater, vampires, vinyl on February 4, 2016 by chrisdsav

Kind of an odd one in my collection  as I’m not a big fan of plays or musicals. I say this regardless of the fact I was just in Mrs. Hawking two weeks ago directed by Phoebe Roberts. Maybe my attitude  has changed toward them over the years as I have gotten older. I have seen Young Frankenstein, The Addams Family and Rock of Ages the musicals and loved them all. I even tried to make a fan play based on one of my favorite  TV shows of all time, Supernatural.

The story of Carmilla is fitting as its February  and Valentines is coming up and I don’t own the soundtracks to My Bloody Valentine or Valentine.

Carmilla is a Gothic novella by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu and one of the early works of vampire fiction, predating Bram Stoker’s Dracula by 26 years. It is the first lesbian Vampire stpry written. First published as a serial in The Dark Blue (1871–72), the story is narrated by a young woman preyed upon by a female vampire named Carmilla, later revealed to be Mircalla, Countess Karnstein (Carmilla is an anagram of Mircalla). The story is often anthologized and has been adapted many times in different ways. I am a big fan of her apearence in the Castlevania video games.

 A chamber opera version of Carmilla appeared in Carmilla: A Vampire Tale(1970), music by Ben Johnston, script by Wilford Leach. Seated on a sofa, Laura and Carmilla recount the story retrospectively.

Here is a great article by the NY times circa 1986 discussing the play which I have never seen. All my vinyl reviews up till now have been about movies I have seen. This is the first soundtrack in my collection  based on a play.

http://www.nytimes.com/1986/10/05/arts/music-carmilla-a-vampire-tale-at-la-mama.html

It’s a different kind of music than what I’m use too Ben Johnston mixes opera with Gothic melody to create a story that is deep into the original narative. The record it self has a pretty piece of art work on the front and a black and white pictures from the stage performance on the back with a bio about the play. Other than that there is not much else.

If you love vampires and want to check out the original female blood sucker then hunt down a copy of this album.
