The B-Raters' First Annual Halloween Movie Marathon

The B-Raters vs. Cheerleader Massacre
This Friday at 6:30pm CDT, The B-Raters' First Annual Halloween Movie Marathon will be LIVE on Google Hangouts (available through The Weirding's YouTube Channel). This year, we're taking on some classic stinkers:

First up is Jim Wynorski's Cheerleader Massacre, then it's Scream Bloody Murder, and we end the Halloween evening with the slasher classic, Sleepaway Camp. In the interest of total transparency, you should know that we have seen the first and last movies; none of us have seen Scream Bloody Murder yet.

Joel Hodgson, Trace Beaulieu Join Cast of Yahoo's Other Space

Joel, Mystery Science Theater 3000
A reunion of sorts is in the works for two Mystery Science Theater 3000 cast alumni, Joel Hodgson and Trace Beaulieu, as both have signed onto the new Yahoo Screen series, Other Space. The series hopes to launch in 2015.

Although little is known about the project aside from those involved, Other Space is a sci-fi comedy set in the 22nd-Century. Beaulieu will again play a robot - Art, which MST3K aficionados will recognize as Crow T. Robot's alter-ego in an episode or three.

Once again this year, Shout Factory is running a Mystery Science Theater 3000 Turkey Day Marathon, just like in the Good Ol' Days. Joel Hodgson even hosts!

Bass Pedals

Bassists generally attract even more abuse than drummers but there is no need to continuously remind everyone of your importance when you have a killer sound. Part of that sound is certainly dependent on both the instrument and amplifier, but also any effects pedals or other gear a bassist might need. Luckily, no matter where you are, you can shop now online.

Nicholas Brendan's Legal Woes Increase with New Arrest

Actor Nicholas Brendan, best known as Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Xander, is no stranger to legal woes but he may want to turn it down a notch or two. Brendan was arrested at a hotel in Idaho over the weekend and charged with malicious injury to property and resisting or obstructing officers, both misdemeanors. He was arrested on similar charges back in 2010.

Many Buffy the Vampire Slayer alumni, including Brendan, reunited at an Australian convention recently and Brendan has been involved in the direction and writing of the latest season of the Dark Horse comic book. Brendan was also recently married and has a recurring role on Criminal Minds. His 2010 arrest lead to three years' probation in addition to public service.
