I'm sloooowly finishing that favorite character meme from yesterday (translation- I'm staring at it and hoping my reasons will start typing themselves). (ETA- and since by the time I finished typing this, it was 2:30 am, I've just plugged in the answers. I'll do the reasons tomorrow. So, so lazy). Every one of them was guessed except my fave from Relic Hunter. To be honest, I wasn't really expecting anyone to get that one, especially since Sydney and Nigel are both exactly my type. Definitely one of my favorite bad shows of all time. It's a good thing I have no shame, eh?

Anyway, I wanted to add a couple of new (to me) details to my squeeing from the other day concerning the upcoming Bill and Ted's Most Excellent Collection. The report I had at the time listed among the extras something called, "One Sweet and Sour Chinese Adventure- To Go." At the time I just raised an eyebrow at it and went on flailing with glee, but little did I remember then... that's the title of the first episode of their cartoon, Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventures. Yay! I loved that cartoon (shocking, I know). It's been years since I've seen it, of course, but I vaguely remember the writing being pretty clever, with some fun historical humor (assuming you thought the first movie was funny) and MST3K-style references. Keanu, Alex Winter and George Carlin all voiced their characters, which is definitely a plus. Of course, all that changed in the second season, but since we're unlikely to ever see a cartoon-only release, it hardly matters. At least we get this episode. So, a very cool extra!

Also, the "copy of "Bill and Ted's Excellent Comic Book" mentioned is an on-screen version, like on the Hellboy discs. I find those a pain to deal with, but whatever. I wonder what that'll make Evan Dorkin's art look like.

The set's up for preorder at the usual suspects, and comes out July 12th.

And I have "Hanging on a Heart Attack" stuck in my head. It's been there for hours. Not the whole thing, just the line that goes, "ring the bell, ring the bell, let the walls come down." Curse you, catchy '80s music!
