The Alamo Drafthouse-hosted, genre-mashup film festival known as Fantastic Fest is in full swing today, bringing action, science fiction, horror, foreign, and way left of center films to adventurous attendees in Austin, Texas. Even though it’s the first day, we’ve already been treated to people vomiting blood, a bizarre twist on Japanese tentacle porn, and lots of gratuitous nudity. All par for the course for this fan-fueled movie spectacle.

Festival favorite Spanish director Nacho Vigalondo premiered his time-bending film Timecrimes here in 2007, which quickly became a festival favorite thanks in no small part to the wacky and lovable antics of the director himself. He is here in attendance himself, and the film will be screening as part of Fantastic Fest yet again, and an awesome, limited-edition vinyl of the soundtrack produced in partnership with Mondo will be available for purchase at the screening, and at a later date for fans online.


Composer and writer Brian Satterwhite collaborated with Mondo on the vinyl project: "Timecrimes has been hailed by critics and audiences alike as one of the best time-travel films of our time. Much of the film's success relies heavily upon Eugenio Mira's masterful score. His minimalistic approach maximizes the subtle tones and nuances of the narrative with surgical precision while adding a highly refined layer of polish to this high-concept science-fiction thriller.”

The soundtrack will be made available on black 180 gram vinyl, and randomly inserted milky yellow/clear vinyl. It will be available for purchase at the Fantastic Fest screening of Timecrimes on September 26, and will be for sale online in the future, so follow @MondoNews for updates.

Watch: This Good Robot - Super SPY

Nerd-rockers This Good Robot paid tribute to Matt Kindt's great series "Super Spy" with their latest track and we've got your exclusive first listen.



The event begins in eight hours, but the parking lot is already teeming with several hundred fans in colorful costumes. In an hour or so, around one and two in the afternoon, that number will increase to a few thousand. Grills are already firing up, and the sound of whirring blenders competes with similar sounding music emanating every few yards from another car’s sound system. A sense of community is already setting in as old friends catch sight of one another, and new friends share stories, food and yes, shots.


Watch: Bounty Killer Theme Sung By Sara Bareilles

Sara Bareilles sings the exploitation-y sounding theme song for the upcoming flick "Bounty Killer" and we've got your exclusive first look at the music video!



A series of animated shorts based on Avenged Sevenfold's upcoming album "Hail to the King" is coming to YouTube channel Machinima this fall.


What would "Star Wars" sound like without the familiar strains of composer John Williams? We won't be finding out anytime soon, since Disney and LucasFilm have announced that the prolific film composer will be responsible for the music in "Star Wars: Episode VII."

Here's an interview with the living legend confirming the news that just came out of Star Wars Celebration in Europe:



Allie Goertz a.k.a. Cossbysweater writes some of the saddest, sweetest songs about geeky pop culture I've ever heard. While other "geeky" musical acts shoehorn obvious sci-fi references into their songs -- or simply write parodies "Weird Al"-style -- Goertz keeps each of her tunes sincere, getting to the lonely, melancholic hearts of her subjects.



The award-winning singer will be giving a live concert in Union Square in July as part of New People's J-Pop Summit Festival.



Once you get past the video vixens, synchronized dancing and excessive costume changes, what’s left to put in a music video? Some horror, animation and video games, that’s what! The following artists have all given their videos a geeky makeover using everything from well-known comic artists to breakthrough techniques (remember that computers weren’t always there to save the day). Here are the fifteen geekiest music videos - ever: Read More...

Mark Mothersbaugh, Aquabats
Mark Mothersbaugh is just a simple farmer-scientist father to a robot. Sure, some folks might know him as a leading member of New Wave band Devo, or as a soundtrack composer (who gave us the familiar sound of a Wes Anderson movie), or even as Mark the art teacher on “Yo Gabba Gabba!” But, as seen in the exclusive clip below, he is now part of musical super hero lore as Jimmy the Robot’s dad on “The Aquabats! Super Show!Read More...

My Chemical Romance may be gone but their legend lives on in the pages of the upcoming "True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys" comic book! As you may already know, frontman Gerard Way is no stranger to the comic book industry. In fact, his Dark Horse series, "Umbrella Academy," has already been optioned by Universal Studios for a feature film adaptation with a screenplay written by Rawson Marshall Thurber.

That being said, it should come as absolutely no surprise to you that the MCR madman had, at one point, been approved by DC comics to write and release an original take on the Dark Knight himself; with the help of Vertigo. So what's preventing Gerard's Batman from seeing the light of day? Well, apparently he just can't find the time to sit down and write it. Click past the jump to see some sketches for Gerard Way's "Batman: Kingdom of the Mad"! Read More...
