Good evening Melters! It was another beautiful day at Meltdown comics. There are a few things this week that I want to share with you, the unwashed masses. So without further ado, here are a few things that should be on your radar this week in the world as we know it.
Growing up I really can’t think of anyone else who was as big of a Power Rangers fan as I was. There was nothing I enjoyed more than waking up every Saturday and seeing what my favorite “teenagers with attitude” were up to every week. When I found out that Saban was rebooting the franchise with a blockbuster movie coming up I was ecstatic! Power Rangers redone with a serious tone and no camp? This I have to see! They have already casted the original 5 Rangers, mostly unknowns, but there was a casting reveal this week that really got me pumped for this movie. The incredibly talented Elizabeth Banks has been cast as the main villain, Rita Repulsa! While I didn’t have the first clue who could possibly play this iconic role but the choice is PERFECT. I truly believe she will nail this. I truly can’t wait for this movie to come out.
I’ve always been a fan of actor, Anton Yelchin. From his indy flicks to his role in Star Trek I always saw big things in store for this kid, and it seems his upcoming film will back this up. I am also a huge fan of Patrick Stewart and the fact he’s a main antagonist in the film only makes me want to see it more. Check out the trailer, judge for yourself.
Now if music is your thing I have something just for you, you audiophiles. DJ, producer and just ridiculous person in general, Dillon Francis, has recently released a look book online that you can check out that shows off his new lifestyle brand called, IDGAFOS that is currently available on his online store. If you’ve ever heard Dillon’s music or been to one of his shows, you know that he is not like any other of these performers out right now. He has his own brand, multiple personalities, and a love for all things absurd. IDGAFOS is a movement spearheaded by Dillon (which is an acronym for “I Don’t Give A Fuck Or Shit”) that embodies his way of living and Dillon’s approach on life. IDGAFOS means living for yourself, being you, and not worrying about what other’s think and to be positive about who you are and what you represent. The collection features a series of new graphic t-shirts, bold colored embroidered shirts, and much more modeled by Dillon himself and the lovely model, Emily Kretz.

Now if you know me, you know I love me a good t shirt. If you’ve ever come into Meltdown, chances are you won’t see me with the same shirt twice. I am always on the hunt for a new store that will sell me shirts with ridiculous stuff printed on them and I had to share with you guys my most recent find. SerialKillerShop.com is a t shirt store that features all of your favorite cinema murderers. From Norman Bates, to Leatherface, To Patrick Bateman every major character with a large bodycount can be found on this sight. Be sure to pick of some Serial Swag here: http://serialkillershop.com
