'Robot Maniacs' Back on Track

As posted earlier, the "Futurama Monster Robot Maniac Fun Collection" DVD set got its original release date postponed. David X. Cohen tells me that the new US date is now tentatively set to August 23, 2005.

The extras on the collection are becoming more clear now, too.
  • An overall intro by Matt Groening and the gang (Billy West, John Dimaggio, David X. Cohen, Producer Claudia Katz, and Supervising Director Rich Moore).
  • Individual intros to each of the four episodes "Hell is Other Robots", "Anthology of Interest I", "Roswell That Ends Well" and "The Sting".
  • Smaller extras (possibly easter eggs) might include photos and/or very early notes from the development of Futurama.
  • A long animatic of "Hell is Other Robots", with full-length commentary by all of the above noteed people. As a special treat, you will get to hear David X. Cohen filling in for one or two of the Beastie Boys on their a-capella version of "Sabotage", since the Beasties hadn't been recorded yet at that time.

Cohen says there will be no extra charge for the last one. However, there will also be no refunds given on account of this.

Casemod genius!

Jan Erik Vangen, one of the best case modders there is, has built a very nice case-mod. A case-mod is a practice where a person modifies a computer case to give it a unique touch, and some people go very far with it. He built a replica of bender with a Mini-ITX-system and a slot-in DVD-player in the mouth. The antenna on the top is actually a WLAN-antenna, and the arms are bendable. A speaker inside the "case" also spits out classical Bender quotes like "Bite my shiny metal ass!". This case-mod of course got several awards in case-mod competitions.

On the norwegian site, he explains the entire process into making this casemod of his. This is by far one of the best case-mods I've ever seen!

*Update*: Jan Erik Vangen sent a url in english which has even more information about the bender case-mod: here!

USA! FIND THE HEAD!

Our lovable little rascal Bender/John DiMaggio had a brief appearance on last
weeks "Future-Drama" episode of The Simpsons. Although Futurama characters
and memorabilia have been seen on the show in the past, this is the first time
a Futurama character has actually spoken.

The scene involved Bart and Homer driving in a hover-car going into a "Quantum
Tunnel" and coming out with a little surprise named Bender. Sadly, Homer
didn't like the idea of a new friend named Bender, and threw
him out of the car
:


Bender: "Aw right, you guys are my new best friends!"

Homer: "You wish loser! *tosses Bender out of hover-car* hahaha"

*Bender falls apart*



Quite sad, but at least we got some Bender action at all, right?

The episode itself also had many references to how Futurama handles people's
heads.
