New Blu-ray Releases Creed II

Last month, Samsung announced they would no longer produce Blu-ray players. It gave physical media fans – like me, and presumably you, if you’re reading this column – pause.

We’ve seen art immortalizing music icons and we’ve seen art immortalizing movie icons. But rarely do we get to see one having sex with the other. That’s exactly what’s currently on display at Gallery 1988 Melrose in Los Angeles, a super twisted art exhibit by a group calling themselves The Butcher Kings.

The Butcher Kings consist of Alex Pardee (who has been on this site numerous times) and Skinner. Together they’ve taken all the properties we love in pop culture: Star Wars, Alien, Doctor Who, Ghostbusters, He-Man, you name it, and either combined them with something completely different and subversive or just made them totally gross and hilarious. For example, in reference to the second sentence, there’s a piece called “F*** The Police” featuring Easy-E from NWA having doggie-style sex with a T-1000 from Terminator 2. It’s that kind of show.
