Fear his wrath, Cobra.  And his well knit hat from his great-aunt Mildred.

Mars Attacks the Transformers

IDW put out a series of one-shot comics featuring Mars Attacks and other characters.  Like KISS and Popeye.  I’m serious.  Well the Martians also did battle with my favorite giant transforming robots from the  1980s!

Mars Attacks the Transformers 01 (2013) (digital-Empire) 001

And Spike adds to the excitement!

Later on we get to hear the greatest Martian translation IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD!

Ah, taunting the recently deceased for taunting you.

Ninja Rap

Back in 1991 a little movie sequel came out that I was kinda torn on.  You see, I was 14 when Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze came out and while I was a fan of the comics the cartoon style of the Turtles no longer appealed to me.  But this post isn’t about my feelings toward TMNT and how it evolved.  This post is about Vanilla Ice:

 

While I have been at clubs where things like this have happened this scene still makes me slap my forehead and cry a little on the inside.  And like a lot of things from the early 90s I blocked this out. 

Now the internet is a cruel and harsh mistress and in my exploration this morning I found this:

TMNT_NINJA RAP-VHS TAPE_1

It’s funny when you find something and say to yourself: “Thank God I didn’t get my parents to buy me that.”  I mean my parents were nice and bought me plenty of useless crap throughout my childhood, I’m just glad I never asked for this. 

So 1991, VHS tape, video single…  maybe 10-15 minutes long…  How much did this cost brand new?  $15?  $25?  I remember brand new VHS tapes sometimes costing upward of $75 a few years before (someday my Jaws the Revenge story will come out) but surely this wouldn’t have been that high.

This is also the perfect onslaught of ’90s pop culture.  Words like “ninja” “rap” “ice” and “turtle” scream flashy neon t-shirts and Zubaz!  Maybe this was worth $25 in 1991!  Fire up the VCR!

Ugh.  I need to go back to bed.
