Dragon's Lair - Original Arcade Ending.

Found a cool video of the ending of the Don Bluth-animated arcade game "Dragon's Lair".

Peter Cullen (Voice Of Optimus Prime) Says "Autobots, Roll Out!"

Yep, that totally happens.

Cartoon-Based 80s Band Covers Song By Drowned Chick From Lethal Weapon 2.

The above is from the early-80s Saturday Morning Cartoon Kidd Video; in which a teenage garage band gets pulled into a magical dimension of music. Each episode had a music video from a performer they had to rescue, and at the end the band did a video of their own; mostly covers but a couple of originals written by the show's producers.

This song in particular was really interesting, as it is a cover of British pop group 8th Wonder.

Recognise that singer? That's Patty Kensit, who played Rika van den Haas in Lethal Weapon 2, love interest and infamous victim in the "thrown off the pier in a straight jacket" scene.

Wizard ROCK!!!

With the new Harry Potter movie a little over a month away, I thought I'd treat you with a new genre of music, called Wizard Rock, which was created by the band "Harry and the Potters" in 2002. It's Harry Potter themed music. Here's some choice videos.

Switchblade Kittens - "Ode to Harry"

Harry and The Potters - "Voldemort Can't Stop The Rock"

Draco and the Malfoys - "Potions Yesterdays" (my favorite wizard rock band)

If this isn't the epitome of dorkstuff, then what is?
