THE GOOD, THE BAD & NERDY FOR OCTOBER 24, 2017
If you watched the season premiere of The Walking Dead this weekend, in Rick’s fantasy included a rather interesting song selection: “Another One Rides the Bus” by Weird Al Yankovic. Weird Al stopped by Conan O’Brien’s show on Monday to talk about it:
“I was aware they were going to [play the song], they had to run that by me before they did that. I don’t quite understand it, but I’m sure it’ll work in the context of the show. Then I watched it last night.. and I still don’t get it, but I’m very glad to be a part of it. The only thing I really gleamed from that, is that, in the post-apocalyptic world, my music will be the only thing that really survives.”
—-Did YOU understand why that song kept being played?
The king of explosive movies, Michael Bay, is set to produce a live-action Dora the Explorer movie. The film will see Dora moving to the city to live with her cousin Diego. No timetable for release has been announced.
Star Trek: Discovery, the CBS All Access exclusive program only 6 episodes-in, has been renewed for a second season. The first half of the current season wraps up Sunday, November 2, and will return sometime in January.
Lastly for today’s edition, after being away from the office for a few days, I returned to see this gorgeous box waiting for me on my desk.
