Snake Plissken Supplemental: The Video Game and Anime

In our Escape from LA and The Adventures and Chronicles of Snake Plissken episodes, we mentioned the failed attempts to spread the franchise across multiple mediums. I haven't been able to find any more info on the video games and anime than what I mention in those episodes, but I wanted to put together a post pulling together what media is available for the two. All of these images came from a couple of posts on Ain't It Cool News by merrick, and give them a look for access to higher quality image files if you'd like.

Masters of Carpentry Recommends: Over, by Jak Locke

Noel here. Jak Locke, the New Orleans-based performer who was kind enough to let us use his track "Black Rainbow" for our themes, recently released Over, a new album he describes as "nine tracks of brand new dark downtempo psychedelic spacey folk". I burned through the entire thing one night (a rarity given my free time these days) and was swept away by the wistful mourning as the tunes wandered through fading memories and failed dreams, backed by music setting a mood and style I think many a Carpenter fan will appreciate. Check out Jak's Bandcamp site, where you can purchase the album, individual tracks, or stream it all for free, as well as his multitude of prior albums and songs. And give his official website a look while you're at it for additional info on his films, music videos, prose, and live performances.

Skipping Episode 25

A quick reminder that there's going to be a jump in the numbering with our next episode. Despite constant and continuing searches, Noel has still been unable to track down a copy of Blood River, a 1991 tv movie based on a script Carpenter wrote in the mid 70s. Well, he has found ONE copy, but it's entirely dubbed in Russian, so it would be tricky to review. Nearly all the tv movies Carpenter wrote have been officially released these days (hell, if Zuma Beach can get a dvd) so here's hoping we'll eventually see the same for Blood River. Until then, the search continues.


UPDATE: Wow, even the trailer disappeared just a couple months after it was posted. Whoever has those Blood River rights is really damned protective of it.
