Awesomeness Elsewhere – Mar 18, 2011

Fat Boys - Crushin'

Where you can find me this week on the Internets:

New Forgotten Favorites this week. It involves one of my favorite rap groups.  Come see me talk nostalgically about The Fat Boys and how they would rap about comic books and movies.  They also had songs with The Beach Boys, Chubby Checker, Freddy Krueger and William “The Refrigerator” Perry.

— I run down the more interesting DVDs/Blu-Rays that went on sale this week.  Come see WrestleMania, BMX Bandits and Sharktopus.  Yes, I said SHARKTOPUS.

— Over on Held Over! I take a look at ads for The Shootist and BeastMaster 1 and 2.

Since I talked about The Fat Boys over on Strange Kid’s Club, let’s see a few videos featuring them.

It doesn’t get any more 80s than The Fat Boys on Miami Vice.

Another great 80s clip featuring The Fat Boys in the movie Knights of the City. Check out Markie Dee sporting that rad crop top. WTF, dude?

And here’s the video for the Fat Boys/Freddy Krueger collaboration Are You Ready for Freddy? It was used to promote the release of Nightmare on Elm Street 4: Dream Master.

  1. What a great week to be a Fat Boys fan! 😀

    Not to mention I FINALLY tracked down a copy of Joysticks courtesy of the director himself, Greydon Clark! http://www.greydonclark.com

  2. Oh, nice! I got to get in on that.

  3. I used to think the Fat boys were sooo cool when I was little.
    Great articles. I like the DVD’s one. Anchorman is possibly my favorite Will Ferrell movie.
