I used to be legit. In fact, I was too legit. Too legit to quit. But now I'm not legit--I'm unlegit. And for that reason, I must quit.
- Iron Maiden's new beer production has come to a halt in Sweden because the logo, which features Eddie from the cover of the 1983 single The Trooper, has been deemed in violation of one of the country's alcohol laws...but they aren't saying which one. Probably the one about having skeletons on your brew, I guess. In any case, they're hoping to sort it all out soon.
- We all know that Bill Ward isn't involved in the new/old Black Sabbath reunion, but now, we may know why: Ozzy says he just couldn't hack it anymore. Osbourne told NME Magazine that when the group met with Bill, he was using Post-It notes to help remember the songs, and he outright admitted that he didn't know how to play any of them anymore. Brad Wilk instead played on the upcoming 13 album, while Tommy Clufetos will tour with the band in the UK in December.
- On March 8th, Kevin Smith announced to the world that he'd begun the writing process for Clerks III, the final installment of his surprise trilogy. (Surprising in that it was never meant to be a trilogy, that is.) As of yesterday, Silent Bob says he's finished the first draft of the film, which clocks in at 137 pages and "plays like the Empire Strikes Back of the Clerks trilogy." Because it ends on a down note? Because it's the best one? We'll find out...
- Arnold Schwarzenegger's return to acting hasn't exactly set the world on fire, so he's looking toward other film projects to grab the attention of the modern movie-goer...and for that, there's nothing better than a remake of a gory cult classic. Rumor has it that Ahnuld is in line to star in a new version of the Troma classic The Toxic Avenger, and if you know that flick, there's nothing more to say about that than YES PLEASE.
- Coffey's Comics and Games on Broadway here in Cape brings you gaming news today, as we discuss the 2014 edition of Magic: The Gathering's Duels of the Planeswalkers, coming sometime this summer. New for this year's edition is Android tablet support, along with new decks, challenges, and plenty more, including a new play mode they aren't revealing yet. Of course, the game will still be available on other platforms like iOS, XBox, Playstation, and PC.
- Now under the Take-Two Interactive banner, WWE '14 (or whatever they end up calling it) now has a release window of sometime in October. Currently, it's only listed for XBox and Playstation releases, but it's likely it'll come to next-gen consoles as well. Otherwise, all we know now is that The Rock will be on the cover.
'Til Thursday, you wild things, ROCK!
