If he had his way Mix Master Mike, one of the most celebrated DJs of our day, would be fighting giant monsters amid the Tokyo skyline.

Instead he’s a superhero behind the turntables, having arguably garnered the most attention for his enduring stint as DJ for the Beastie Boys. He appeared on three of the influential rap group’s studio albums, including its final disc, 2011’s “Hot Sauce Committee Part Two.”

These days Mix Master Mike is working magic all over the place, and recently got his geek on by giving the “Teen Titans” TV theme song a makeover. Mix Master Mike’s take on the tune is tagged to the new animated comedy “Teen Titans Go!,” which airs 7:30 p.m. EDT Tuesdays on Cartoon Network.

Music and science fiction go together like hot fudge and ice cream, Tango and Cash, peanut butter and bananas (hey, you like what you like and I’ll like what I like.) Whether it be the biggest, baddest John Williams score or the harshest of riffs from Rage Against the Machine, tunes and sci-fi are integral. Read More...

We're headed into the time of year when all of the sweeping epics, historical dramas, and Oscar contenders start making their way to the screen. And some of your are likely excited about some of these big releases because of the grand trailers Hollywood has been pumping out over the last couple of months. Part of getting you hooked in, of course, is the score accompanying the trailers.

Composer and producer Yoav Goren is one of the people responsible for making sure that music works its magic over you. An Emmy-winning musician and president of Immediate Music, his work has shown up in trailers for everything from "Carlito's Way" to "Lincoln" to Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit".

With selections from Goren and Immediate's music getting collected in "Trailerhead: Triumph," we thought we'd talk to this veteran composer about his 20 years in the industry, why superhero movies are tricky, and the secret to the perfect epic score.

Season four of the Adult Swim animated metal series is a departure from previous seasons mostly because it's clear that creator Brendon Small is reaching some kind of end game for the actual "Metalocalypse" that gives the show its title. The added continuity and feeling that one of the characters might--gasp--grow in the course of this season add to the sense of disorientation, even as the slightly shortened season remains as funny as ever.

Plus, with the release of The Dethalbum III, it looks like Small and the real-life members of the fake band behind Dethklok are moving beyond some of the same jokes and even style of the first two albums.

Change is afoot and the end is near. Doodly doo.
