Welcome to Rod & Reel!

Not about fishing.

Welcome to Rod & Reel, the Gazette’s first-ever blog covering film, television and video — all the stuff we can’t fit in print, whether local, national or international.

Those of you who’ve arrived here via a Google search, seeking info and tips on fishing, apologies. (But, hey, have you seen “Okie Noodling”?) —Rod Lott

By Crom, it's crazy!

‘Conan’ cartoons coming to DVD

Those of you awaiting the “Conan the Barbarian” 3-D remake hitting theaters on Aug. 19, satisfy your hunger for swords and sorcery until then with Shout! Factory’s DVD release of “Conan the Adventurer: Season One,” streeting July 26.

It’s two discs of the 1982 cartoon series. I wasn’t even aware there was a cartoon series. We’ll have a review soon. In the meantime, feast on these three clips. —Rod Lott

VOTD: Phil and the Osophers, Ink on the Page

Looking to watch a video that feels like it should come with 3-D glasses?

At first listening to this new track from Phil and the Osophers, I worried that my headphones were wearing out. Turns out the cracking and fizzling is just part of the recording, very much like this splotchy and frenetic video that appears to have been shot on some sort of psychedelic film that’s been aging since 1967.

Very Kinks-y.—Matt Carney

VOTD: Typhoon climbs a tree for La Blogotheque

Dogs, hanging instruments and hipsters all around you. Sounds like a typical Take Away Show to me.



The 2000s saw folk singers assemble indie-orchestra bands loaded with violins, cute musician girls and scruffy faces (Sufjan Stevens, Lost in the Trees, Austin, Texas's Mother Falcon).

Portland’s Typhoon just may have literally taken this sub-sub-genre as high as it’s ever gone.

I feel like 'Tekken' tonight

And there's a flying panda.

I’ve never played a “Tekken” video game. But I have seen the new, live-action “Tekken” movie, now available on the DVDs and the Blu-rays.

Now there’s another “Tekken” movie, this one is animated, is only showing tonight, won’t hit video until around Thanksgiving, and looks fairly insane. I call your attention to this entry from last Wednesday’s Gazette:

“Is your moviegoing heart lusting for something bloody, vengeance-filled, based on a video game and requiring special glasses? Behold! For one night only, catch the computer-animated, PG-13 actioner “Tekken: Blood Vengeance 3D” at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Cinemark Tinseltown USA, 6001 N. Martin Luther King. A 20-minute special follows. Tickets are $12-$14. Call 424-0461 or visit fathomevents.com.”

Again, that Tuesday means tonight. I’ll be there, likely complaining of a 3-D-induced headache. —Rod Lott

VOTD: People, People do The VDub Sessions

People, People get ready, for the van’s a-comin’

Stillwater dudes People, People spread their flannel blankets over their drum skins for a muted, intimate show inside the ol’ VDub Vanagon with videographer Nathan Poppe for the latest episode of “The VDub Sessions.” Titled “Golden Rust,” the song’s new and lovely. Everybody involved gets bonus points for riding around in that AC-less heat trap.

Blackest blight

Which is worse: the movie or the cap?

Online T-shirt shop ROCKWORLDEAST (whose PR peeps swear up and down that the company name really is written in unappealing all caps) recently released its top five items for the summer. Amid the usual music-oriented tops (Misfits, Wiz Khalifa, Grateful Dead) are two movie-merchandise wearables.


One is a shirt featuring Zach Galifianakis’ character from “The Hangover” films, above the line, “That’s classic.”

Unfortunately, the other is this flat-brim hat featuring Green Lantern. Woe be to the teen or tween who tries to wear this at my dinner table, much less bring into my house. —Rod Lott
