On the Friday night of San Diego Comic-Con, while some con attendees were hunting up grub and others still hitting up some of the many parties in the many hotels dotting the bay, I was heading to the USS Midway, a museum aircraft carrier about a mile from the convention center. My short trek in the waning daylight hours was in the hopes of seeing the world's biggest (animated) metal band in an Adult Swim-hosted show.

And that night, I and an intimate audience of a couple of hundred of Dethklok fans were rewarded with the thundering drums of Fear Factory's Gene Hoglan, Bryan Beller on Bass, and the brutal, throbbing guitars Mike Keneally and frontman/vocalist Brendon Small as the cartoon/live act just murdered our ears in advance of their nationwide tour.

Hit the jump so I can tell you precisely how a cartoon band performs in concert (not so much Gorrillaz, if you're wondering), and check out some photos I snapped during the show.

Scream writer Kevin Williamson likes you to know that he knows the conventions of storytelling. That's, at least, what I've taken from his constantly winking and nudging forays into horror, and that seems to be the agenda of The Following, the upcoming Fox series with an intriguing premise re: a serial killer creating disciples that is hampered by a writer writing awkwardly, painfully about another would-be writer (who's also, in turn, obsessed and knowledgeable about another writer still). It's complicated. Read More...

During our SDCC interview with Doc Hammer and Jackson Publick about the method to keeping their Adult Swim animated series popluar, the duo revealed their big secret: it takes so long to get an episode made, and the gap between seasons are so long that fans forget about the show and fall in love with it all over again.

Doc and Jackson go into some of the challenges of getting a season out the door (every couple of years or so) while challenging our host to some leg wrestling.

Hot!
