The Random Fandom - Episode 24: Walken to the Bank

The girls welcome a couple of crazy men to the show. You already to know them, Andy aka Cobra CommanderTFW and Glenn aka Dreadwind.


…Imagine that with this crew. Join us as we talk about some going ons in the world of entertainment as well as feature a spotlight on the delightfully insane, Christopher Walken.

[OBITUARY] Michael Gough (23rd November 1916 - 17th March 2011)

The British actor Michael Gough has died, aged 94. Known to most movie fans for having a huge Horror genre acting resume (Including stints for Hammer during the 60's), Gough will be most beloved for his performances as butler Alfred Pennyworth in the Tim Burton / Joel Schumacher Batman movies from 1989 - 1997, also reprising the role for commercials as well as two BBC audio plays. Doctor Who fans will know him best for his iconic role as The Celestial Toymaker in the 1966 serial of the same name, a role he was due to reprise for the Colin Baker era had the original Season 23 had gone into production (Although the aborted story "The Nightmare Fair" has subsequently been adapted into a novel by Target Books and as an audio play by Big Finish Productions). Gough also played the role of Councillor Hedin in the Peter Davison serial "Arc of Infinity". In another link to Doctor Who, Gough was married to actress Anneke Wills, who played First / Second Doctor companion Polly, from 1962 until their divorce in 1979. Wills details their marriage in her autobiographies "Self Portrait" and "Naked". Gough married three more times, and is survived by a fourth wife, Henrietta. Although Gough had retired from acting in the mid-90's, Tim Burton would encourage him to make cameos in most of his movies, with Gough's last known acting role being in Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" for Disney in 2010.

On behalf of the Nerdsphere, I wish to send my respects and condolences to the family of Michael Gough at this time.

- Matt

Japan: A Special Message

What you've just seen is some of the devastation currently affecting Japan. It's an event that is affecting all of us in one way or another and many of us are currently keeping by our televisions to keep up with the events. I will be updating this blog with messages every once in a while:

"Awful to hear about what's going on in Japan. My thoughts are with anyone out there or connected to this tragedy." - Dreadwind, via Twitter

"A sad day for Japan, wish them all the best with the rescue and getting life back to some form of normality soon." - Wizartar, via Twitter

"Seriously don't know what to say at the moment about the earthquake. Still overwhelmed by it all. Thoughts go out to those affected though." - Nemesis Scourge, via Twitter

"Just woke up and see what has happened in Japan, I thoughts go out to all of you." - JazzSanti, via Twitter

"Big hugz and good wishes to all in Japan and affected by this quake. I feel numb with shock..its just too much" - Logan Blaze, via Twitter

And many more. I would like to personally thank TFW / HJU's Vangelus for keeping us all updated throughout the morning with updates, as well as Mr. C from CSToys in Japan updating us as we speak. These guys are troopers.

On top of the disaster hitting Japan, many neighbouring coastlines including the Philippines, Taiwan & Hawaii are also being affected, with tremors and threats of a Tsunami approaching within the next few hours. To every family, businesses and lands affected by this terrible event, I would like to send my thoughts to you at this time and hope for a swift and speedy recovery.

And HERE if you want to fund the relief efforts in Japan.
