The Peanuts Gang Performs Pink Floyd’s Classic Rock Opera in the Mashup “Charlie Brown vs. The Wall“

YouTuber Garren Lazar has hit upon a brilliant idea—take clips from Charles M. Schulz’s universally beloved Peanuts cartoons and cut them together with universally beloved (more or less) popular anthems like “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Don’t Stop Believing,” “Freebird,” and “Stayin’ Alive.” The huge emotions of these songs suit the oversized feelings of the comic’s characters, who were, all of them, variations of Schulz himself. As Jeff Kinney writes in his introduction to Chip Kidd’s book, On...

Peanuts Rock: Watch the Peanuts Gang Play Classic Rock Songs by Queen, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Journey & More

In a very crowded field, Garren Lazar's comical take on Queen’s "Bohemian Rhapsody" is a stand-out. Comical in the literal sense. Lazar, aka Super G, struck a rich vein when he thought to mash the Rolling Stones’ "Sympathy for the Devil" with footage culled from Charles Schulz’s animated Peanuts specials. And over the last six years, he’s mined a lot of gold, using Final Cut Pro to pair familiar clips of a drumming Pigpen, Snoopy slapping a double bass, and the iconic “Linus And Lucy” sc...

We’ve known for a while that Eternals, the upcoming Marvel Studios movie directed by Chloe Zhao, is supposed to be the first MCU movie to include LGBTQ representation in a significant way.

‘Wind in the Willows’ Movie Back in the Works with ‘Downton Abbey’ Creator Hopping on Board

It’s been about 10 years since we first heard about a film adaptation of The Wind in the Willows coming together with the help of Peter Jackson‘s WETA Workshop. At the time, the plan was for WETA’s Ray Griggs to direct a live-action movie using advanced animatronics to bring the four anthropomorphic animal characters, Mole, Rat, Toad and Badger, to life. However, a decade later, the plans have changed and a new filmmaker is on board to help Peter Jackson’s WETA Digital is now involved with The ...

Merry Christmas from Faithlife

“Isn’t there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?” 1 asked Charlie Brown in the Charles M. Schultz 1965 classic A Charlie Brown Christmas . With childlike simplicity, his buddy Linus answers by reciting Luke 2:8–14: And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. And the angel said to them,  ...

British Lawmakers Approve Boris Johnson’s Withdrawal Agreement Bill, Paving a ‘Preliminary’ Path to Brexit After All

(LONDON) — British lawmakers gave preliminary approval Friday to Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit bill, clearing the way for the U.K. to leave the European Union next month. The House of Commons voted 358-234 for the Withdrawal Agreement Bill. It will receive more scrutiny and possible amendment next month, and also has to be approved by Parliament’s upper chamber, the House of Lords. But Johnson’s commanding Conservative majority in Parliament means it is almost certain to become law ...

Word of the week: Democracy grief

What’s your grief, and how are you coping with it? Perhaps you suffer from climate grief, a term that may have been coined in 2007, by the authors of an Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, to describe the despair and depression people experience when they contemplate the climate crisis. Maybe you console yourself by eating, which may result in what Germans call kummerspeck (literally “grief fat”). Or maybe you, like New York Times opinion columnist Michelle Goldberg, are experie...
