GWAR Eternal Tour Beautifully Paid Homage To Lost Leader Oderus Urungus

Gwar1

(PCM) Many were curious just how GWAR and the scumdogs of the universe would survive after the loss of their leader Oderus Urungus but I can say that his spirit was very much alive and well during the GWAR Eternal Tour as it slayed its’ way across the nation.

After being sucked through a hole in the space/time continuum Lord Blothar has now found himself thrust on stage fronting the almighty GWAR and he certainly managed to pull it off without a hitch. Well, maybe that is not entirely true … he did have to deal with his sister from a distant future the sexy breast-blood spewing Vulvatron.

The tour overall focused on GWAR’s search for their lost leader Oderus and they payed homage to his spirit beautifully. The show was both highly entertaining and the perfect way to allow fans to both celebrate and mourn the death of Oderus, who in his own right was a true rock n’ roll pioneer.

The production for this tour was phenomenal and it was an utterly fantastic idea to have the first song of the evening performed by Oderus himself through the magic mirror aka. a video screen on-stage. I am not going to lie that I actually shed tears during the song while watching one of the slaves (GWAR’s on-stage hands/prop guys) looking devastated the clawing at the screen which contained an image of their beloved leader.

Musically speaking everyone in GWAR has truly stepped up their game and their finale cover of the Pet Shop Boy’s “West End Girls” was fantastic. I definitely enjoyed GWAR’s version a whole lot more than the original.

I am sure that GWAR will have plenty more in-store for 2015 as the band will be celebrating their 30th anniversary!  It is sure to be a bloody good time!

Publicity Stunt From Greenpeace Ruins An Ancient Peruvian Monument

Greenpeace1

(PCM) A group of environmental activists from Greenpeace are now facing criminal charges after a publicity stunt has caused ruin to an ancient Peruvian monument.

The publicity stunt was put together by Greenpeace activists to bring attention to the issue of climate change across the world. In the stunt the activists entered scared ground in Peru to spell out a message that read “TIME FOR A CHANGE! The future is renewable. Greenpeace.”

The Peruvian government was horrified by the stunt, as it caused irrevocable damage to the 2,000 year old Nazca lines that were etched in the ground on the sacred plateau in Peru. The Nazca line (and now unfortunately the Greenpeace message) are only visible for nearby foothills and by plane. In fact the ground is so scared in Peru, it generally only used for Nazca ceremonial purposes and is incredibly fragile.

The area where the activists tread is somewhere where humans are not supposed to walk in order to continue to preserve the historic and scared site. The Peruvian government claims that by walking in the area, your footprint is going to last hundreds or even thousands of years. The line that the activists have destroyed is perhaps the most important and visible of all.

Everyone is in complete shock that an organization such as Greenpeace would destroy such a sacred area just for their own publicity. Greenpeace has since apologized to Peru for the stunt and the moral offense it may have caused. They are currently in talks to figure out some way to repair the damage that has been done.

Greenpeace says that they will not use the images from the Nazca Line stunt in any future publicity campaigns, but sadly it appears that the damage has already been done.

Today Is National Maple Syrup Day! Grab Some Pancakes And Dig In!

maple-syrup1

(PCM) We are not really sure why National Maple Syrup Day happens to fall right smack in the middle of December or the origins as to why it exists in the first place, but somebody had to pay homage to ooey goodness that is warm maple syrup, so why not today!

The incredibly sweet and unique flavor of maple syrup was first discovered by the Native Americans who came up with a way to harvest and boil the sap of a maple tree into a thick syrup. The sap of the maple tree begins to flow in late winter, so that may be the reason the this day was chosen to celebrate this gooey treat.

If you are looking for few ways to celebrate National Maple Syrup Day you could start the day off by having a delicious breakfast of pancakes or waffles covered in warm real maple syrup. Maple Syrup can also be poured over vanilla ice cream for a dessert twist later in the day as well.

Also, we were very surprised to learn that the sap of the maple tree can also be used as a beverage. Leave some sap in the fridge and grab a cold sip whenever you are inclined. The sap can also be drank as it is being harvested from the tree.

It should also be noted that pancake syrup is not the same as real maple syrup. Unless the ingredients on the bottle list maple syrup, it is no longer contained in bottles of pancake syrup. Today would definitely be the day to splurge a little bit and get your hands on some of the real stuff .. trust us .. you will certainly be in for a treat.

Theater Chains Pulling “The Interview” After Latest Threat

TheInterview(PCM) After the latest threat from the Guardians of Peace, the hackers behind Sony’s scandalous hacking, several theater chains have decided to pull Seth Rogen and James Franco’s The Interview.

Carmike Cinemas announced on Tuesday that they would not be screening the comedy about an assassination attempt on the leader of North Korea in any of its 238 theaters across 41 states.

Several hours later, Landmark Theaters announced the cancellation of the New York City premiere of The Interview, scheduled for Thursday night in Manhattan at Landmark’s Sunshine Cinema.

The cancellations are due to the Guardians of Peace’s latest threat that, according to Variety, promises a 9/11 style attack on theaters that screen The Interview on the film’s release day, December 25th.

This hasn’t deterred some movie-goers though; many are brushing the threats off and planning on seeing The Interview and attending theaters on Christmas.

The recent threat has proven to be just as calculated as the leaks of damaging executive emails, the release of employee personal information, and the leaks and deletions of Sony’s unreleased projects. With Christmas day being one of the most popular movie-going days in the U.S., pressure is on for theaters to keep audiences filling their seats.

Disney’s musical Into the Woods, Tim Burton’s Margaret Keane biopic Big Eyes, Angelina Jolie’s intense Louis Zamperini biographical drama Unbroken, Ava DuVernay’s Martin Luther King Jr. biographical drama Selma, Clint Eastwood’s drama starring Bradley Cooper, American Sniper, and Rupert Wyatt’s drama starring Mark Wahlberg, The Gambler, are all slated for a Christmas day release.

With all of these prestige titles slated for release on the same day as The Interview and in light of the recent threat, it won’t be that surprising if more chains pull the film from their theaters. Sony released a statement to theater owners, announcing that they were moving forward with the scheduled December 25 release of The Interview but support theaters who pull the film.

Stars Seth Rogen and James Franco also cancelled all of their scheduled press appearances since the latest threat. When questioned about the threat, a spokesperson for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security told NBC news that there was “no credible intelligence to indicate an active plot against movie theaters within the United States.”

Stay tuned for more updates!

Kmart Brings The Nightmare Before Christmas To Life

Kmart3

(PCM) Kmart is creating a true Christmas nightmare for holiday shoppers as they have now been informed that items they paid for as presents via online layaway are currently “out of stock”.

Kmart had initially told customers that that if they had paid their layaway balance off by December 14th the items they purchased would be delivered in time for Christmas.  Now, the company is cancelling orders and informing customers that they will be receiving a refund for the items they purchased.

Here’s the problem … the refunds will not be issued in time from customers to purchase new presents to replace the Kmart “out of stock” items in time for Christmas. This is leaving many families without the gifts they were expected to give to family and loved ones.

Many customers are demanding to know why the items they ordered were not placed on hold when they were initially put on layaway and they are also incredibly angered that they will now have to find away to purchase new presents without proper funds.

Customers are being told that their refunds could be issued in as little as 3 to 5 days, but others are being told that number is closer to 14 days in actuality.  Needless to say that Kmart’s social media feeds are buzzing with complaints from angry customers and many are already beginning to threaten a potential lawsuit over the situation.

Kmart has been answering the customer complaints with an incredibly generic message which states “We are very disappointed to hear that you had to go through this experience with your layaway order. Please let us know if you do not see your refund within 5-7 business days.” This response is only angering customers even more as they seek out answers and a solution to save Christmas morning.
