Crom Interviews: Mumm-Ra
Crom’s subject this issue is The Ever Living devil priest of Third Earth. The sound of his maniacal laugh emenating from his dreaded Black Pyramid makes the blood run cold of any man, woman, or feline. With an unending thirst for power, ladies and gentlemen…
Crom: Alrighty, awesome to have you here Mumm-Ra, it’s a great pleasure to interview you.
MR: Yeah, listen happy pants, I got two words for you: Hung. Over. So please, cut out that cheery shit, and lets get this show on the road.
Crom: Oh…kay… Well, considering the length of time that you’ve been alive, and the obvious evil power that you wield, I suppose the most important question is, Why do all of your plans fall apart so miserably?
MR: Whoa, easy buddy, I don’t see you enslaving the vicious Berserkers and commanding them to do your bidding, I don’t see YOU getting Slithe and Monkian to take care of your business. Why don’t you save the critique for when you’ve accomplished some evil there sonny. Besides, if you ever watch those mutant bastards at work, you would understand the kind of pressure I was under. I mean jesus, those fools couldn’t find daybreak in orbit.
Crom: So what is a typical day in the life of Mumm-ra? Do you spend some time with the minions, go over the evil plans, have some strategy sessions or..
MR: Listen, I’m going to have to interrupt you there. My heads killing me, have you got any Tylenol, or aspirin?
Crom: Aspirin…for a Mummy? How exactly does the physiology of someone…or thing…that is already dead, work in such a way as to cause your head to hurt? Is your blood pressure up? How the FUCK does a mummy even GET hung over?
MR: Listen shithead, have you ever allowed Jaggermeister to touch your lips? That stuff is so powerful that it could probably give a brick wall a hang over. Jesus, that stuff could actually bring the dead back to life. Maybe you oughta get out once in a blue moon, check out the scene. Hit a few bars…
Crom: Wait…are you telling me, that the reason you were late, and the reason you feel bad right now, is that YOU, a mummy, went out last night, to a BAR, and got DRUNK, and are now hung over?
MR: Wow…Mr. Wizard? Is that You? Who the fuck hired you to interview people? That’s some decisive journalism!
Crom: Hey at least I was….
MR: OH! I got me a Pen! And, a clipboard, and a DICK-ta-phone, now I can be the new Mike Wallace, I’m on sixty minutes! I remember when I was interviewed by Barbara Walters, and Mick Taison for Playboy, the Thundercats badboy is A-list, and I don’t think I need some snot nosed new comer telling me…
Crom: Hey! Listen up you bandaged up asshole, the last time your face graced television was 21 years ago, and possibly a couple of times since in some kind of nerdist misty-eyed remembrance ceremony for the lost action of the 80’s. You were by far the worst villain to ever fight a hero in any show. Skeletor would WIPE his ASS with your clothing, and then go and do something more brilliant with his eyes closed then anything you EVER did. In fact, I think a lot of people are wondering how you ever get around when you have to return to the Black Pyramid to recharge after you’ve walked 10 blocks. So take that bottle of water, and the complimentary muffin basket, and get the FUCK out of here. I don’t even understand WHY the magazine decided to
(Editors note: at this point it sounds as if Crom is smashing the tape recorder with his bare hands. Recording ends.)

Food for Thought
..or some reason, most people seem to believe that there are a hundred people behind a curtain at their local Denny’s just trying to get everything perfect, as if the Queen of England were dining there..
Do you remember the first time you ever read r4nt? I do. I remember because it was the original issue, and it wasn’t even live on the internet yet..
The former Soviet Union was right. Americans are fat… and stupid. They are decadent, and wasteful. I’m certain however, that the same could be said for many nations and peoples..
An Open Letter of Apology to My Parents
I’m sorry i threw up on the upstairs carpet. I didn’t intend to puke all over the rug, it just happened, i was 9, cut me some slack, please.
Playing into their hands
…These radio stations could air their DJ’s making farting noises all day long and there’s Sweet Fuck All that we could do about it…

Tune in and hear it for yourself
Other recent features:
Sónar 2010 – Barcelona, Spain
The festival attracts a lot of outsiders, but the Mediterranean, Spanish and more specifically Catalan nature of the people makes the festival what it is. Catalan people are passionate and this passion is infectious. The atmosphere is electric in Barcelona as a city and heightened by music and intoxicants at Sónar.
Summer Party Naval Styles at Seven RestoLounge
Oysters, like wine are affected by terroir and these Miyagi’s flavor profiles ranged with one showing a cleaner, almost tropical profile and the other being more salty, marine driven. As I was devouring the seemingly endless plates put in front of us, I sipped on a glass of fine sauvignon blanc.
R4NT Radio March 2010
R4NT Radio March 2010 um wow it’s been far too long since the last edition edition, featuring: Hector Hernandez, The Infesticons, Blockhead, Gramatik, Emika, Thunderheist, Parov Stelar, Eddy Meets Yannah, Anti-Pop Consortium, The Slew, Lighterthief, Andreya Triana, Parasyte Woman, Mathon, Venetian Snares, and Funki Porcini.
O Restaurant & Lounge revisited
Calgary has a diverse set of urban communities, most of which have the ubiquitous strip mall watering hole. In the South West community of Marda Loop, a reinvention of this paradigm has been established.
Predictions 2010.. and beyond!
So 2010 eh? Almost but not quite (no year zero they say) another decade? It seems like just yesterday that the world was waiting for Y2K. R4NT started publishing in March 2001, so we’re not quite 10 years old yet, but in internet years we are already a senior citizen.
No matter what, the reality of Nelson Mandela is something that deserves screen time. Should this film even remotely intrigue the masses to take interest in this figure, the world would likely benefit greatly from it.
