Way Cool Wednesday: 10th May 2017

Welcome, one and all, to this month’s Way Cool Wednesday! Herein, we shall once again be exploring the wonderful world of ‘cool things hiding in the internet’. But what has my pointless browsing turned up this time? Let’s find out.

 

WAY COOL VIDEO: THE WARRIORS – WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE

Do I love the film, The Warriors? Absolutely! It’s easily one of my favourite films of all time and I watch it at least once per year. What many don’t know is that the sometimes campy slab of gang warfare is in actuality based on a book. But then, films often make changes from the source material, don’t they? Here, we get to study those changes.

WAY COOL ARTICLE: MANNED BIPEDAL ROBOT

Now, this is really cool. What we essentially have here is the CEO of Amazon trying out a giant robot suit. Evangelion? Pacific Rim? Power Rangers? Yup, that’s the idea! The article talks about the suit and its possible uses, and also includes some video of the thing in action.

WAY COOL VIDEO: SONS OF ANARCHY – TOP TEN CHARACTERS

Son’s of Anarchy came around at a time when I was finding very little to enjoy on TV, and it completely blew me away. Over the course of seven seasons, we got to see so many things, both touching and brutal, and my word it managed to do so with such a superb consistency. I don’t necessarily agree with all the placings in this particular video, but’s cool to see some of the best characters from the ensemble cast. Be warned though, the video is not only NSFW, but contains spoilers.

 

WAY COOL MUSIC: SKINDRED – NOBODY

Skindred are a Welsh band that fuse elements of metal, rock and reggae into one cohesive sound. Now, the band have created better songs that this, such as the awesome ‘Destroy the Dancefloor’, but for many, this track was their introduction to the band. As such, it seems fitting that I use this one for WCW. The band are actually very good live too, and the singer was kind enough to pose for a photo and make me a dressing room sign when I met him before the gig that I was at. If that isn’t the sign of a good performer, I don’t know what is.

 

And so ends our latest journey into the fun and whacky world of the internet. Thanks for reading everybody, I’ll catch ya later.
