Old news that I forgot to cover, but ABC is making a live action musical-movie hybrid thing sometime this year. Supposedly it will use pieces from the animated movie as well as celebrities singing the original roles, and yeah… not sure what this is.
What I hope this is, is some weird Fantasia-esq thing that shows genuine love for the almost 28 year old property… okay, that’s not true. What I really want is a televised version of The Broadway Musical, but I don’t think that this is that… but hey, who knows, right?
I didn’t know what to post, so here are a few mermaid sort of related things. I hope everyone enjoys, and I will catch you tomorrow as I continue mermaid week.
Mississippi John Hurt’s Let The Mermaids Flirt With Me came out in 1966. I learned of this song while searching for Chicken of The Sea commercials. There was one from 1966, but it had a watermark on it. While searching Mermaid and 1966 I learned of not just this song, but of the Jack Gilford stop motion “The Daydreamer” that has a segmant inspired by Hans Christian Anderson’s ‘The Little Mermaid.’ 1966 was apparently a big year for mermaids.
Below is Mississippi John Hurt’s original version of Let The Mermaids Flirt With Me, as well as several covers of it. So, who sang/played it better folks?
Below is a game that I first found out about at MAG Fest. After playing it at https://archive.org for a little bit longer, I have to say… I am terrible at Mr. Do! In case it’s not playable, as this is my first time to ever try to embed a game, it is playable here: https://archive.org/details/arcade_mrdo
What else can you Mr. Do? Well, it’s Sunday, which is useless, so let’s see… Water slide inside of the mall? Wait no… that’s Dead Rising 2/Off The Record, which is on Steam sale. As fun as it is, there is no controller option… so… hmm
What else can we do about Superman. Wait. I meant Sunday. Okay. Superman time. Here’s an old video from Max Landis explaining why Superman is important.It’s old, but kind of important, all things considered. Take into account that it is from 2013
Speaking about movies, do you know what else is fun to do on a Sunday? Be upset that Disney’s Gargoyles hasn’t been a thing for a while. Wait. That’s not fun. Let’s watch a fan teaser trailer from 2015 instead.
That’s not enough. Let’s watch The Nostalgia critic talk about Gargoyles from a year ago.
OH HAH! Was not expecting my friend Marzgurl’s picture to be shown there. Was… Was Kaylyn’s hair even blue last year? I thought that was when it was purple. So next tangent is related to her I guess?
Spoiler, I don’t watch a lot of her videos, so after searching for something of interest… here’s her doing a one woman a cappella of the song Delightful Spekkio? Because if there was a day where you would have the time to listen to video game a cappella, it’s Sunday?
MarzGurl – MarzGurl Sings! – Delightful Spekkio
God… a cappella is so underrated. I just tried to do it for the Final Fantasy VII battle music, and you have to really know the piece. I didn’t even start it right.
Smooth McGroove – Final Fantasy VII Battle Theme Acapella
That’s enough for this Sunday. Later everyone!
I give a listen and a review to the new Ghostbusters theme song, as well as give my insight on all of the official remixes that have come before it. Will this remix, featuring FALLOUT BOY(?) and MISSY ELLIOT(?) be the final nail in the coffin? Find out!
