Episode #30: Singers Gone Villains

August 11th, 2012

  • Copycat (Harry Connick, Jr.)
  • Fear (Mark Wahlberg)
  • Sling Blade (Dwight Yoakam)

  • It was always a subject of contention between friends when we were younger.  Who’s playing who? “I’m Donatello ‘cause I’m the smartest.” “No, I WANNA be He-Man.” “D’uh, I’m Leonardo ‘cause he’s the Leader!”

    But what happened when you wanted to be someone else?  Mumm-Ra, Shredder, Skeletor?  Some of us, our imaginations ran rampant with the schemes & machinations of all the baddies we saw on our favorite shows, and we knew:   HOW AWESOME IS IT TO BE A BAD GUY?!?

    You’re not confined by the ridiculous moral “code” of the goody-little-two-shoes & you get spiffier outfits!  The evil women are almost always sexier (except Jem – she was hardcore!), and monster minions are great as long as you have mutant minions to scoop. We’ve done the heroes…now it’s time for the Villains.

    So fire up the death rays, pour yourself some Chianti & start growing a moustache to stroke.  It’s time to get DOWN with your bad-self in the exciting conclusion of our singer section.  Actually, we’ve got one more of these; um, stay tuned for the exciting conclusion.  TBD.  Yes, it’s new and you can have some if you come back.
