Yahoo Music: Radio Legend Casey Kasem Dead at 82



Casey Kasem, the man behind one of the most famous voices on radio and television from the '70s through the 2000s, has died after a long battle with Parkinson's and dementia. He was 82.

"Even though we know he is in a better place and no longer suffering, we are heartbroken," said his daughter Kerri Kasem via social media. "The world will miss Casey Kasem, an incredible talent and humanitarian; we will miss our dad."

Kasem was best known as the host of American Top 40, the weekly countdown show that he co-founded in 1970 and hosted from 1970 through 1989, when he was succeeded by Shadoe Stevens. At the time, Kasem left ABC Radio Networks for Westwood One to host a new version of his weekly show re-titled Casey's Top 40 With Casey Kasem for a deal worth $17 million over five years, making him one of the highest-paid voices on radio.

Comic Scans: Archie #2 (circa 1995)



In this issue the boys join the military and a yeti disrupts a peaceful ski trip

Scans under the cut..... )


As always, I don't mind if people use these scans to make icons or whatever (I can't claim "ownership" of a book with characters that clearly aren't mine just because I scanned it). But credit and/or a link would be much appreciated if you do opt to use them or show them off elsewhere. Thanks!

Fan-comic: "hot legs"

How is it that Velma can wear something as impractical as this....



....in the winter time and not freeze to death? In this comic, Shaggy finds out!

Their first "I love you"

This is how I imagine Shaggy and Velma's first "I love you" will be exchanged....

(no subject)

This year for Halloween I cosplayed as my spirit animal, Mystery Inc's very own Velma Dinkley. While I didn't get a lot of pictures or the chance to be dressed up for very long, I did manage to find an excellent opportunity for a crossover that was too good to pass up.

Needless to say, I am going to be writing a fanfic of this very, very soon. 

Happy belated Halloween!







Comic Scans (1995): Archie #1

The Archie comics run marked the last time Scrappy was a regular character in a Scooby Doo series. Thankfully, unlike the TV shows he was a part of, his inclusion doesn't exclude Fred and/or Velma. So he's actually tolerable as a member of the gang.

This series also wasn't afraid to be loose and wacky when it came to the art. While it's not always pretty (or on model), it's at least interesting to look at.



In the premiere issue we find out that Daphne is an elitist when it comes to amusement parks. And then Fred and Shaggy go to prison!

Review: Scooby Doo Haunted Holidays

Believe it or not, this special has one major thing in common with an anime called Slayers Premium. Both movies are saved by an actor named Crispin Freeman. No, really! Follow Evil Frosty and find out how!!


The Haunted Holidays special is a new mini-movie that's included on a compulation DVD called "13 Spooky Tales: Holiday Thrills and Chills". In addition to the new special, it has about a dozen random Scooby episodes from various incarnations that share a Winter Time theme (but I'm only gonna touch on the new one).

Yet another 'Scooby Doo: Where's My Mummy' prequel....

Yeah. I think I love the potential stories behind that movie more than I like the movie itself. ^_^

For those who don't know, Scooby Doo: Where's My Mummy starts with the revelation that Velma left the gang for 6 months to work on an archeological dig in Egypt. And the gang surprised her by flying to her work site mainly because Scooby wouldn't stop crying until they agreed to visit her. That plot point was so adorable that I had HAD to do prequel comics about it!!

Just to refresh your memories, here's the last prequel comic:
