Puny Humans! Tremble before lots of news!
Been very busy so let's get straight to a run down of all the 31st Century news:
The pre-sale date for Futurama Monopoly has been moved up to September 1st. Keep up to date on previews for the game on the official site.
Here's the 7 collectible tokens.
Futurama is currently running new episodes in the UK, Fridays, 8pm, Sky1. Double episodes!
A date has been set for the latest volume of DVDs in the US. December 20th.
The Futurama Comic Con panel was on July 23rd. Here's a run down of what happened:
- The next 2 seasons of 13 episodes were confirmed.
- Although it appeared a couple of days previous, Matt Groening announced the official Futurama Head in a Jar app for iPhone and iPod Touch. It's a fantastic app and you can see my attempt above. I've had a lot of questions about whether it will appear on android and so I asked someone in the know and unfortunately there are no plans for that to happen although it's not being ruled out.
It's only available on the US store but if you live overseas you can create a US account if you find some instructions. Just have a search ;)
- Matt Groening and friend of the site Peter Avanzino(The Late Philip J Fry) had a fantastic 'draw off' infront of the crowd. It was great fun and you can watch it here.
- The 'anime' part of the finale was also shown to a great reception.
A great Billy West interview is HERE!

In tonight's ALL NEW episode 'Fry Am The Eggman' is a song called 'Eggman' by Australian artist Eli Wolfe who released his self titled debut LP in September last year. You can find out more about the song and Eli on his official site or Facebook page.
Eli told us a little more on how he came up with the song:
"The song Eggman first came to me as a painting. I awoke one day with my head was so full of information and thought that I felt it was going to explode! With a canvas on the floor, I promptly splashed down a blue base, which serves as the ether, and suspended in it a white cracking egg with a limping skeletal body.
Now relieved and pondering upon the 'Eggman', I relaxed while playing the guitar. A guitar riff formed, which is the angular rhythm of Eggman's quirky stride. The words that followed the music were ladened with images and symbols that delve into the human psyche and an inner-desire for an expansion of consciousness. There was no inspired or creative relation to The Beatles song 'I am the Walrus', it was simply a subliminal image that birthed from how I was feeling at the time. Putting it all together with image and music, the final upbeat song moves along with a fun and delirious momentum. Enjoy!"
So look out for it on tonight's episode and come back to review shortly after...
So long meat bags!
