RECORD STORE DAY GETS GEEKY WITH SCOTT PILGRIM AND GHOSTBUSTERS

Record Store Day is April 19th and the closer we get, the more info on exclusive releases trickles out. Sure, there’s plenty of cool stuff from all your favorite obscure indie bands or whatever (like a 5 LP set of LCD Soundsystem’s last show!), but what’s REALLY awesome is the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game soundtrack featuring sexy tunes from Anamanaguchi. If that’s not enough awesomesauce to pour down your pants, there’s also a single of "Ghostbusters" by Ray Parker Jr. with the original song plus dance remixes, but more importantly, it glows in the motherfreaking dark.

Record Store Day is a way to celebrate and support independently owned record stores all over the world. Each year musicians release exclusive rare vinyls and, in a way, it’s kind of like collecting Pokémon. Check out the full list of releases announced so far here and be sure to check with your local record store to make sure they’re ordering that weird rare thing you want.

Seven of the Best Film Themed Slot Machines
American poet and philosopher, Henry David Thoreau once said, “This world is but a canvas to our imagination.” Nothing seems to emphasise the concept of art being all around us quite like the idea of theme based slot machines. With online gambling sites like jackpotjoy Bingo, we find endless examples of fantastically themed slots, although the true art can be found outside of the web, with the ‘read deal’ slot machines. Film themed slots are personally my favourite, deeper analyzing how creators have transformed a film and its complex ideas into a gambling machine is rather interesting. Here are seven of my favourite film themed slot machines.

The Hangover

With this film taking place in Las Vegas, and with many scenes inside of a casino, The Hangover is an obvious choice for a film based slot machine. In case the symbols, which include a baby, tiger, bloody tooth, liquor and Alan’s infamous man-bag are not enough, the main voiceover that hosts the game is none other than the hilarious Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong). What’s not to love?

Star Wars

With one of the greatest followings of movie history, this Star Wars themed slot has three base games that correspond with the three original movies, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. With a large number of images and sounds from the films, this will have any Star Wars fan hooked.

Star Trek

Another film with a massive following, these slots see symbols of iconic characters, such as Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock, as well as the legendary Enterprise. Keeping it old-school with sounds and images, the Trekkies are in for a treat.

The Lord of the Rings

Based on Peter Jackson’s movie adaption of Tolkien’s epic book series, this machine takes you on an adventure through Middle Earth, with the breathtaking official soundtrack to keep you company. ‘The Balrog’, ‘Isildur’s Sword’ and ‘Gandalf’s Fireworks’ are only a few of the fantastic bonuses players can choose from.

Indiana Jones

When the iconic Indiana Jones theme song begins to play, everyone in the casino knows that some brave soul has just begun an adventure of wit and bravery. Outsmart the booby-trap-ridden machine, and you’ll be leaving heavy pocketed.

Ghostbusters

Who you gonna call? Slimer? If you are able to ignore the sarcastic teasing and mocking of Slimer, the ghost that leads players through the game, you are definitely in for a treat. With additional graphics, sound effects and the ever-popular theme song, you’ll be a regular ghost buster after your first spin. 

Willy Wonka

Based on the 1971 classic, this slot bring Roald Dahl’s magical chocolate factory to life. With the perfect amount of adventure, theatrics and whimsical characters, this slot will leave you wanting more… chocolate!

"What did you do Ray?!"
Ever wonder how big the miniature model of Stay Puft was? Wonder no more. He’s way bigger than I would have expected. Now I’m wondering what material he was made out of. Set lights are ridiculously hot, and he isn’t melting at all.
