Today on Boing Boing tv, we are proud to share the sneak-preview of a television pilot, the AQUABATS! SUPERSHOW!, a live-action and animation program featuring the popular superhero ska band, The Aquabats (MySpace).
Jon Berrett of Yo Gabba Gabba explains:
This spring the Aquabats completed a pilot for a new television show
based on the misadventures of rock and roll's greatest super dude men.
The Aquabats have been a band for over a decade, have toured the
world, and put out 5 full length studio albums.
The AQUABATS! SUPERSHOW! TELEVISION PILOT will have a special
screening at the San Diego House of Blues show on July 25th, 2008 [during Comic-Con]. If
you already have tickets, you are STOKED!
The excerpt we are world-premiering on BBtv today is an animated portion of the show's first episode, and includes angry mushrooms, vengeful unicorn princesses, and a subterranean paradise with lakes of hot pink lava. The AQUABATS! SUPERSHOW! also includes live performance and real-world hijinks. We think it's pretty awesome.

(Huge thanks from all of us at Boing Boing to Jon Berrett and the crew at Yo Gabba Gabba, and to The Aquabats for allowing Boing Boing to share this first with the non-subterranean world!)

I have a Fender Telecaster but no case or stand. It usually sits on a couch. I finally broke down and bought the ChromaCast CC-MINIGS Universal Folding Guitar Stand with Secure Lock for $8.96 on Amazon. It’s got a 4.5-star rating on Amazon with over 1,200 reviews.

As such, we must make do in this strange time in which long, glorified […]
All the filters in the world won’t save your smartphone pics from a shaky hand. To really step up your mobile photography game, you’ll need some kind of mount to hold it steady.
